We found Suzanne to be honest, reliable and very positive answering our never-ending questions without any hassle. It is an awesome team at Mike Pero and when we had doubts whether we were doing the right thing she was there to calm our fears. We feel the team have been awesome and on task for us.

Linda and Glenn Gardner

We recently sold our house through Suzanne. When we were looking for an agent to sell our property we knew she was the agent for the job. She communicated well with us and went above the call of duty. I would recommend anyone selling or buying to give Suzanne a call. Great job done and a fantastic result.

Luke and Shona Johnston

Suzanne made a great impression from the first time we met her when interviewing agents. She shone above the competition then and has been a pleasure to deal with since. Her all-girl team is efficient and works extremely well to ensure a great customer experience in what can be a relatively stressful time. I would have no hesitation in recommending Suzanne and her team to any prospective sellers or buyers. Thanks so much for helping us achieve the outcome we wanted.

Martin Morris

From the moment we first met Suzanne she was friendly and passionate about her business and team. She listened to what we needed and, with thorough professionalism and knowledge, she achieved the exact outcome she predicted for us as the sellers. Suzanne, you, your team, and the Auctioneer Ian Keightley made the whole process seem easy - the sign of true skilled professionals.

Sara Reid

I just wanted to let you know that Suzanne has been so wonderful to work with for us as the buyer! This was our first time buying through negotiation and she walked us through very patiently. Suzanne has been completely professional, genuine and transparent and it really felt like she had both the vendors and our best interests at heart. We had a tricky time working through the conditions of sale, mostly due to the banks being very picky and coming up with many road blocks against the security, and Suzanne could not have been more helpful or pleasant to deal with. I really think that if she hadn't been so available and efficient, that the sale may not have gone through. We are really grateful for her help and will definitely be recommending her to anyone looking to sell in the area.

Tēnā koe Suzanne & team of Mike Pero, Highland Park! We have been fortunate to have had you and the team as our hoa-haere / valued travelling companions in the journey of successfully selling our home in Binda Place, Botany Downs. You clearly marked and signposted every part of the pathway, keeping us at the centre of your every effort.

We have been very fortunate and blessed to have you guide and take care of us through this, a whole new experience and pathway as we begin another exciting stage of our lives, travelling with our great grandson into his future journeys.

Hariata and Taina Pohatu

I cannot speak highly enough of Suzanne McDowell who recently sold my property in Half Moon Bay. She was superb. Her personality, advice, helpful tips and constant communication made her a dream to work with. Her wide and knowledgeable marketing of my property resulted in a very good sale price in a relatively short time. Thank you Suzanne. You rate A+++.

Judith Wilson

We feel that Suzanne did the best for us to achieve the top price. We feel that under the circumstances, Suzanne performed admirably under some, at times, difficult moments. We would highly recommend Suzanne to anyone buying or selling Real Estate. Her caring and professional manner impressed us both.

Leon & Mary Ann Angell

Suzanne was very professional in her approach to selling my home. She was very warm and friendly and made sure I was well informed about the sale process and auction of my home. The open homes and auction were run extremely professionally by her and her team. The auction price exceeded our expectations. I would recommend Suzanne to anyone looking at selling a property.

C. Taylor

Suzanne McDowell and her team at Mike Pero Real Estate did an amazing job with the sale of our property. I found both Suzanne and the rest of her team were all professional, sensitive to our needs and met our expectations. Selling your home is stressful, but when you have the right real estate team behind you, working for you, it makes the entire process so much easier. Needless to say, our home was sold in 3 weeks at a great price! I have no hesitation in recommending Suzanne to sell your home.

F. Abrahams

We are very happy to finally complete our largest investment in our life early this month to buy a house at Botany Downs. Suzanne was very helpful to us during the whole process, not only before we buy, but also during settlement and even after settlement. As the listing agent, Suzanne is very keen to help us to arrange visit for the open home. She also helped to coordinate during the time we appointed for a check on the building. After that, she helped to consult city council about certain details regarding the house. She also openly shares her experience about auction with us. After we bought the house, she helped on coordinating with lawyer for the settlement. She even helped us to liaise with the owner to fix some small problems of the house, which we did not noticed during the settlement. We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to her effort during the whole process. Also, we would like to recommend Suzanne, who is an agent with plenty of local knowledge to all Chinese buyers like us.

Grace Gao

Selling a house at auction for the first time Suzanne made the process an easy one. Everything explained in detail. To receive a token of her appreciation at the end, makes it all worthwhile. This is the second home Suzanne has sold for us, and I guess she will get another phone call if she is still selling Real Estate.

Felix & Jill

The morning after ...'The Auction'...I still have that 'thrilled' feeling. Suzanne has done a truly outstanding job on selling my property! The feedback, problem solving skills, great marketing, personal presentation, managing a great number of potential purchasers and coaching them to 'the Auction night', all done at a very high professional standard. As an ex Real Estate salesperson having worked up to recently in the industry for 18 years, I truly recognise those most valuable skills. Her personal service is second to none! I highly recommend Suzanne to take care of the sales of your property.

Riet Van Lieshout

Warwick and I have been impressed with the excellent service we got from Suzanne during the period when we were selling our home. From the moment we asked Suzanne to represent us, we had first class service. Suzanne kept us informed through phone, text and email; the communication was very much appreciated. Suzanne was punctual, articulate and a pleasure to work with.

Sherry & Warwick

We have to say a big thank you to Suzanne McDowell of Mike Pero Real Estate. She is very professional, has amazing marketing skills and always kept us in the loop with what was going on at all times. The day of the auction Suzanne had five groups of people bidding for our property. We would not hesitate to recommend her as a top agent who gives 100% to her clients. Good luck Suzanne for your future.

Peter & Cathy

We found Suzanne always personable, professional, accessible and honest. She showed integrity on following through with everything she promised. We would highly recommend her.

Robyn & Noela

Thank you Suzanne and to your team for a great result. I chose you because I felt at ease and comfortable. You took care of everything and I really didn't have to worry about anything. I highly recommend you to people who wish to sell their homes. Also, I recommend Mike Pero Real Estate who added that extra touch. Great work.


Suzanne and Mike Pero Real Estate did a fantastic job with the presentation and marketing of our property. Suzanne provided some excellent advice and recommendations for our house. The recommendations turned our tired rental into a million dollar property. We highly recommend Suzanne McDowell and Mike Pero Real Estate for your property transaction needs.

David & Diane

Suzanne was a total professional from the beginning. She was available anytime to answer questions we had and gave us honest feedback. We believe she did her very best for us and delivered on Auction day. She exceeded our expectations. We were very happy and would have no hesitation in recommending her. Her team also delivered exceptional service and were professional, friendly and great to deal with, nothing was ever too much trouble. All round a fantastic team who delivered exceptional service who we will continue to recommend. We wish Suzanne and her team a prosperous future.

Tania and Mike

Thanks so much for everything Suzanne, you and your team are wonderful. Your service and care was above and beyond fantastic.

Tania and Michael

We signed with Suzanne more than 6 months before our house was put on the market (as we were building). When looking for a suitable agent for our house, Suzanne was the only one who showed up with helpful documents and market information in a well presented manner. It was an easy decision to sign with Suzanne, and we felt very comfortable and confident during the entire sales process. Suzanne and her team were extremely professional, who went above and beyond our expectations. We would highly recommend Suzanne and her team to anyone looking to sell their homes!

Sarah and Chantal

Suzanne McDowell was our Real Estate agent, she is just wonderful to deal with, she and her team are a credit to Mike Pero. Suzanne was professional from our first meeting, she also advised us how to best present our home, made easy suggestions on how to maximize our selling potential , but not only that she has become a very good friend in the process. Suzanne understood how difficult it was for myself to sell this property as I was very attached to our family home. With her help, we can now pursue our dream of moving to the Bay of Plenty and building a new home. I would not hesitate to recommend Suzanne , her Team or Mike Pero Real Estate to any of my family or friends. the whole process has been an absolute joy.

Jackie Watson

On behalf of the Whanau I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you did in selling our family home. You did a fantastic job and it is very much appreciated. Arohanui


Suzanne McDowell, was highly recommended to us by another of her satisfied clients. Everything we were told proved to be true regarding her marketing ability to achieve maximum results. She showed real skill in co-ordinating our demands and those of the purchaser in the most professional manner for a very happy result.

John & Shirley

I would like to inform you of the fantastic service I received from Suzanne from the Highland Park Office. As I am a widow and my husband had dealt with all the business aspects of our lives it was a daunting task to place my home on the market after 47 years!! Suzanne treated me with respect, kindness and great patience. I could not have had a better real estate agent. Suzanne also gave me great advice and information on moving to my new home. I would totally recommend Suzanne to everybody.


Suzanne is an extremely professional real estate agent. I came across her on a few occasions with various open homes and I felt very comfortable with her approach and found her very easy to deal with. She always returned my phone calls/emails and replied to any text messages. I would definitely recommend her to friends/family who are considering buying or selling property.


Recently I asked Suzanne McDowell from Mike Pero Highland Park if she would market my property. Suzanne was extremely friendly and totally interested in selling my home. She kept me informed every step of the way and explained the sales process that we were going to go through. I cannot say enough about Suzanne and the company that she represents. She and the staff have been exemplary and I am extremely happy with the result. She is a great representative and a real asset to Mike Pero and I would have no hesitation in recommending her if you wanted to sell your house.


“….. I must say your marketing is the best I have seen with your emails and your online resource for getting property info. You guys are leap years ahead of the other agencies.” Thanks


During our first contact, Suzanne’s presentation of the buying and selling process was very informative. She is helpful, friendly and faces the challenges of her job with confidence and success. I would recommend her as an agent any time!


“I was very impressed with Suzanne as soon as she walked through my front door. Very professional. Everything about Suzanne I felt very comfortable with. Everything was carried out very well and I would give her a 10 out of 10. I would recommend her to anyone looking for someone to sell their home.”

C. Roughton

Just wanted to say thank-you so much for all that you did to help Ray and I on the purchase of our home in Pakuranga, It was a pleasure to walk into an open home and not feel any pressure from an agent, you were so helpful in our questions and answers. Totally professional and at the same time friendly. We are so excited about moving into our new home. I would recommend you to anyone who I know maybe looking for an agent to sell their home, Its not often you meet agents who you feel you can approach easily and ask anything. So thank-you so much and if your around our way once we have moved please feel free to call in and have a drink, once again thanks for everything.

Jane and Ray

Suzanne did a great job & had a good professional approach. I trust this might be the first of several houses I buy from Suzanne & Mike Pero Real Estate. A good job well done, thank you.


We would like to thank you for your friendship and the magnificent efficiency you showed in selling our house, the amount of work you put in was exceptional considering we only gave you a week in which to sell it. A task you completed and over the price we expected. So once again thank you.

Ray and Barbara

On behalf of John. Thank you for the way in which Suzanne McDowell handled the sale. She was very good with John who found it very difficult at times to keep up with what was going on. She was very patient with him and both John and I are very grateful to her. Thank you once again.


You have a winner in Suzanne . Her expertise coupled with your sales and marketing strategies place you well above your competitors, a number of whom I have used in the past. Well done and we are delighted with the outcome of our auction.


Now that all the excitement of yesterday has subsided "just a tad " we just wanted to say again how much we appreciate the effort and professionalism that you and your team have shown throughout the whole exercise of selling our home It would not have been possible to achieve what we did without the efforts that you personally put in.I know that the words "thank you" can sometimes be inadequate in expressing our gratitude however please accept those words in the spirit that they are sent.

Irene & Jeff Milnes

We would just like to say a few words of thanks to Suzanne McDowell for her excellent service in selling our house last month. Suzanne had a calm, friendly and knowledgeable approach to helping us with our sale. Working to a tight time line, she was able to help us decide on the best marketing approach and had secured us two firm offers and a sale within the week. She then continued to assist us throughout the rest of the sales process and certainly provided help above and beyond what we might have expected. We would fully recommend her to anyone thinking of listing their property. Thanks Suzanne!

Ken and Vicky

Today was settlement day on my home of 27 years. Meeting for an appraisal to sell my home, I was struck by Suzanne’s professional, caring and respectful attitude. Throughout the process of selling, this was a constant. Communication was excellent, keeping me right up to date with progress as things happened. Suzanne worked hard on my behalf. I would highly recommend Suzanne as your Agent.

Margaret Paladin

We were incredibly lucky to have found Suzanne to market and sell our two properties. We would like to thank her very much for making the sale of our two houses go as smoothly as they did. Suzanne made the selling process a positive experience and gave us confidence with her professional approach. Suzanne was very helpful when presenting options to us and in the end we benefited from her experience. Her understanding of the market was crucial to getting it right as the two properties were quite different and required different approaches. Both, I am very glad to say, worked really well. We would have no hesitation in recommending Suzanne to our friends and family, whether they are buying or selling.

Paul & Caren

We are very happy with our purchase and Suzanne has been very good to us. She was very helpful and we found her very professional, especially how she dealt with us when the property received multi offers. More power to the Mike Pero company. Please keep up the professionalism.


Thank you Mike for your Congratulations. We were delighted with the result and we cannot thank Suzanne McDowell enough for her care and expertise in working so hard for us to obtain this result. She is thoroughly professional and a real "people person". She kept us informed all along the way and we felt she was really working for us only, to get a good result.. At the Auction, with the help of a great Auctioneer Ian Keightley, we obtained an excellent price for our home. The Mike Pero way is certainly the way to go.

Betsy & Neil Connelly

On behalf of my family I would like to thank Suzanne for her professional approach and the positive experience and outcome in selling our mother's home. The sale price was certainly above expectation's, and as a family we are so pleased our 85 year old mother will be cared for in her rest home for the rest of her life, without having to worry about the financial costs. I would also like to mention I found Ian, our auctioneer, very professional and he did well on the day.

Elaine Allen

We have just sold our house with the services of your company and Suzanne McDowell. I am just writing to say how great I have found dealing with Mike Pero Real Estate (for the first time). We have dealt with other of the supposed 'big' players in real estate before and have been left feeling disappointed on each occasion. I would like to say that I/we have found Suzanne to be nothing short of superb. Her entire presentation is outstanding and won us over in light of considering a couple of other companies. Her demeanor, attitude, and work ethic have made this sale a smooth process and has removed a lot of the additional stress that is involved. I would be seeking her out in future for sure, should I need to have further real estate business. Thanks also for your personal e-mails which adds to the image of your company placing importance on our situation. They are a nice touch. Thanks again for not only meeting our expectations but indeed exceeding them. It's been a pleasure dealing with you, and especially Suzanne.

Tam McGarva

Suzanne worked very hard for us, it often felt that we were her only clients such was her focus on selling our house and keeping us informed. She was always thinking of options and alternatives to help attract buyers and show our house in the most favourable way. I would not hesitate to recommend Suzanne to anyone, she did an excellent job in marketing our home and ultimately achieved our aim of selling at a price we were happy with.

Stuart and Vicky Greenwell

Suzanne sold my one bedroom top floor apartment in Flat Bush after only 10 days on the market. She provided an honest appraisal and listed for a realistic price in order to achieve my objective of a quick sale. I felt that I had equal priority with her other listings and her thorough research into the apartment market in this area gave me confidence I had sold for the right price. All in all an efficient, simple and straightforward service from a highly experienced, professional and personable agent. Very happy!

Emma Schwaner

It is with the greatest of pleasure that I would like to recommend Suzanne McDowell. I first met Suzanne at an open discussion for the Older Person on preparing to sell one’s property. I was very impressed with her respect and empathy. I invited Suzanne to give me an appraisal on my property. She was meticulous in explaining so clearly the whole process of marketing one’s property. Suzanne’s genuine, friendly disposition was very reassuring at all times. She communicated regularly, with phone calls and personal contact throughout the whole process. Without question, Suzanne was working for me, aiming to achieve the best possible outcome, which came about very quickly. I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone considering listing his or her property. She was professional, honest and dedicated to the task.

Barbara Pritchard

We are absolutely delighted with our sale given that it was only listed for two weeks and did not even get to Auction. Suzanne was given free rein to market our property in whatever way she saw fit, she took on this challenge with much enthusiasm. Her approach to the task truly showed her immense marketing skills and she delivered to us a price that was perhaps in the “dream” category however with her excellent skills and communication abilities, she came through with honours. She is exceptional at communication and follow up, which is what sets her apart from others in the industry. This has been a “stress free” experience once again. This is the second house she has sold for us and we highly recommend her to any prospective sellers or even purchasers. She is held in the highest regard by us both.
