John Blundell

Country Specialist

When you ask his clients and customers what they like about John the most, they say; it’s his belief that good business is about doing the correct thing by his customers and clients and doing those things to the very best of his ability.




John was the agent when we bought the land originally to build on. He has an easy going manner whilst at the same time being a great source of information on all things real estate which my wife and I found really helpful. A few years after building we were looking to list our property and it was an easy decision to use John again. Prior to even signing a contract with John he was always available and had time to give advice on both the sale of our property as well as the property we were looking to purchase. The method of sale John suggested for our circumstance was a great success and the sale of our property was better than anticipated. We couldn't have been happier with the service John provided.

'We chose John because he backed himself to get the best price for our properties. The marketing was very professional and high class and had national reach through the Bayleys network. We were delighted when John delivered the result we were after'.

I brought a farm through JB and was so impressed with his professionalism and honesty that he got the job of selling the farm again for me years later.
He will be my agent of choice in the future.

Eighteen months ago Deryn & I decided to put our two dairy farms on the market for sale. John was recommended to be an agent by a friend and when approached readily agreed to represent us.
He has successfully carried out this challenge with a pleasant genial openness and honesty that has made two sales an enjoyable experience.
We hold John in the greatest regard, both as a person & Real Estate Agent & highly recommend him to anyone either buying or selling properties.
Yours faithfully

We decided to list our farm with John after being recommended to us by friends who had sold their farm through him.
We found John to be hard working courteous and we were very happy with the service he provided.

When we decided to sell our farm, we had no specific agent ( or firm ) in mind. A friend suggested John Blundell from Bayleys. When we met John, we knew we had made the right choice!
He is friendly ,approachable ,honest ,professional and a dedicated land agent. John explained the different sales procedures, came up with lots of ideas and kept us informed every step of the way.
Our dairy farm was on the market throughout some challenging economic times. John felt our disappointment when milk prices dropped and the outlook for dairying didn't look too promising. However, he worked even harder- weekends, evenings- no stone was left unturned. He genuinely wanted to help us.
He did sell our property and found us a delightful lifestyle block!
Thank you John. We do appreciate all your hard work, your friendship and your can do attitude.
We wish you well in your future and would not hesitate to recommend you as a top land agent.

John Blundell successfully sold my farm at Oakura, New Plymouth in early 2015.
I found John to be hard working, honest and thorough in his work ethics.
Having an open mind and a positive attitude, it enabled him to look at all options and through his efforts I achieved a positive farm sale result.
I wish John every success for the future.

We had a 15 hectare property which we knew would be difficult to sell so we contacted John. His approach was very professional and he was more than happy to take on the challenge.
We were very impressed with how John marketed the property and appreciated the communication he gave to us, which kept us informed with how the property was being received.
Fortunately John sold the property for us. We found John very easy to talk to, he was always available, friendly and above all honest.
We would not hesitate to use John again and would thoroughly recommend him to anyone who would be wanting to market their property.

The first thing that strikes me about John is his real passion for the Coast and our people. John contributes significantly to the local community and is a proud Coaster and sponsor/ supporter of our Coastal Rugby Club.
In terms of his professional career, we recently sold our farm and didn't hesitate in contacting John to manage the process. His strengths included:
Network of contacts. He knew who was looking for farms and the type of farm they were after. One of the first people he contacted ended up buying our farm.
Professionalism and transparency. At all times John showed complete professionalism and transparency in the process which resulted in a lot less stress for both parties to the sale as a result of the trust built throughout the process.
Honesty. We personally found John's honesty and frankness around expectations refreshing and kept us at ease through a long process where our personal commitment to the process was emotionally tested at times.
Hard working. John was tireless in his pursuit of finding us a buyer and working through the process.
Personal. Selling a farm is a very emotional roller-coaster and John's empathy and personal experience assisted us greatly in reducing the stress involved.
I am more than happy to recommend John, as a Rural Sales agent with Bayleys, to sell your farm.

John looked at all the options and he knew the market. He pursued various avenues in order to obtain a farm sale and his connections are widespread.

His relaxed yet professional manner set him ahead of the rest, this set our minds at ease and we had confidence that John was working in our best interests. There is no doubting his integrity and honesty, in short we trusted him.
We wish John well and thank him for his efforts in making our farm sale successful and relatively stress free.
We would have no hesitation in recommending John Blundell to Sell your farm.
