Peter's testimonials

Suzanne & Geoff

We chose to use Peter to sell our property in Clyde because approx. 2 years ago when we were first looking for a property in Central we walked in off the street not knowing anyone and Peter took the time to hear what we wanted and was just so approachable. We didn’t buy with Peter, but when it came time to sell Peter was the obvious choice remembering his manner towards us on that first visit to his office. Peter was again approachable, professional and most of all easy to deal with. We would have no hesitation in using Peter again in the future and would be happy to recommend him to others. Thanks Peter

Tony Banks

Last year Peter Hishon sold two properties for me. Neither sold by the initial Deadline Sale method but were sold shortly after by negotiation with one taking longer than the other. Peter was a great help in advising on the method of sale, where the market was at and the steps we should take. He gave weekly reports on progress and clients he had had interest from. I was impressed with his professionalism, enthusiasm, and the effort he put in on our behalf, I thank him for his service and wish him every success in his new venture.

Ross & Jodie

We are happy to have recommended Peter to friends. We found Peter to be very professional, with a good knowledge of the current market and excellent communication throughout the sale of our property.


I was impressed with the service & results from Peter and his manner was pleasant and helpful. He gave a good estimate of market value and the price we got was consistent with that.

Steve & Chris Brown

We have been so pleased and impressed with your service. From the outset the communication and consultation were first rate. A very professional approach using modern marketing methods proved to be very successful for us, achieving a great result for all parties. All this for your very attractive fees structure and be assured we will highly recommend you.

Karin Hamilton & Wayne Johnston

We engaged the Tall Poppy Real Estate Team to sell our property as they offered a fair and reasonable commission rate and Peter was very approachable with a good sense of humour. Tall Poppy kept us fully informed throughout the process and we appreciated the open discussions around price and marketing plans. We recommend Tall Poppy Real Estate to others and wish them well.

Becky & Lynette

The service we received from Peter and the tall poppy team was fantastic. Being out of town buyers on a short timeframe made us a little more complex to deal with but the team made our purchase very simple. We would definitely recommend the tall poppy team in Alexandra to anyone looking to purchase in central Otago. If we were ever to sell we would not hesitate to engage Peter as our listing agent. Thank you all again, we love our house.

Toni Green

We dealt with Peter in relation to the purchase of a property in Clyde. There was some negotiating involved (as there often is) which we think he done very fairly. He was up front about expectations from the outset which was very helpful. We were also kept informed throughout the whole purchase process of the Tall Poppy expectations. Thanks Peter, job well done.

Mike & Marielle Craighead

We are very happy with the service provided by Peter and with Tall Poppy Real Estate's clear fee and marketing structures. Peter gave us excellent advice about marketing our property. We found Peter to be very easy to deal with as he is very laid back and personable. Tall Poppy's fee structure meant we saved lots of money on agent's fees! We got 2 offers just 19 days and 2 open homes after we listed our home - and both were excellent offers. Thanks Peter!

Alan & Trish May

Thanks Peter for completing this sale. It was a pleasure to have you as our agent as your professional experience was much appreciated. We wish you & Tall Poppy all the best in the future. If ever we need to buy or sell property in the future, we will certainly be in touch with Tall Poppy in the first instance.

Jamie & Carolyn McDermott

We have found the process easy and seamless. We were well and regularly informed of progress. We felt the time and attention to detail Peter gave when listing our property was excellent and gave us every confidence it would be marketed in the best light. We are pleased with the outcome would recommend Peter to our friends and family and should we have any future real estate needs ourselves would only be too happy to be in touch again.
