Brendon Burke was great to deal with when buying my first home. He had great advice and always put in extra work. Would highly recommend Brendon when buying or selling a house.
When it comes to Real Estate, buying or selling, I would not hesitate in recommending Brendon Burke to my family and friends. I purchased a town house earlier this year with Brendon looking after the seller and myself. He was very patient, kind and sincere to both sides. I needed alterations measured up etc before I moved in due to having MS. Brendon made the whole process easy. Over the years I have bought many homes and have had some very good Real Estate people, but Brendon is tops. I wish him every success and if you choose him as your salesperson you are in good hands, he knows the property business.
Brendon Burke fulfilled the Mike Pero Real Estate promises for me 100%, by exceeding the expectations and yes my property sold fast! So select Brendon to sell your property and be reassured you are in good hands, plus enjoy a dynamic, vibrant and charismatic top man at the helm. Overall, you will be impressed!
Brendon's top priority is obviously communication. He always kept the buyer well informed and followed up any questions or issues in a timely manner. He is well informed of the regulations around sale and purchase agreements and settlement procedures. He communicates that to the potential buyer well. Brendon was good at negotiating situations that are out of the ordinary between buyer and seller. He is approachable and friendly.
Brendon kept in contact with me right through the sale of the house. He told me what the buyer thought of the house every time he bought some one through. Brendon was always professional at his job.
As an agent Brendon was extremely professional and went the extra mile to ensure all of my questions were answered during the process of purchasing my property. He ensured I knew all the facts and made the process simple. Nothing was ever a problem. I would recommend working with Brendon and would use him again in the future.
We found working with Brendon an absolute pleasure. Buying our first home was daunting, but having a Real Estate agent who was honest, genuine and helpful meant we had one less thing to worry about. It was nice to feel like we were working with a real person, not just a sales person. Brendon was prompt replying to our enquiries and went over and above to help us get the house we have now. We would, and currently do, recommend Brendon to others and would happily seek his advice and expertise in the future if we ever buy/sell again.

We have used Brendon Burke in Invercargill and Olly Wilson in Timaru to sell two properties. What a great experience it has been. Both have been professional, kind and put the "real" into Real Estate. Both agents have worked for us and kept us well informed and supported along the way, therefore we will be recommending Mike Pero Real Estate to our friends and family. A huge thank you from our family and we look forward to our two settlements in March!
-Trudy Hurst and Adam Grice
From our first contact with Brendon, he was a pleasure to work with, always positive and professional. He was willing to listen to us and negotiate terms and conditions. An offer was made within 4 hours of the house being listed, and sold within the week. He was then able to direct us to our next home.
In 2016 my husband and I had the pleasure of engaging Brendon Burke of Mike Pero Real Estate to sell our house in Invercargill. For me it was the first time I had sold property, but Brendon explained the process clearly and in full. Both of us found Brendon a very honest man. We were updated frequently and we always knew what was happening, and Brendon was easily contactable. We were both impressed with the level of "feet through the door" and the level of interest that Brendon garnered, ultimately ending in a satisfactory sale. We would happily recommend Brendon, and Mike Pero Real Estate to others.
Brendon has achieved a great result with the sale of my home. I would highly recommend him to other clients as you won't find a better salesperson to deal with!
We found Brendon a pleasure to work with. As it was our first house selling experience, we found Brendon to be very informative and he made the whole process easy. Brendon received multiple offers in a very short time and we feel he went the extra distance on our behalf. We would be more than happy to recommend Brendon to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property.
-Fran and Russell
I would certainly not hesitate to recommend Brendon to anyone considering buying or selling a property. I met Brendon around three years ago when I was looking for an investment property, and he listed the one I brought. His easy going professionalism led me to contact him recently when I sold my mothers house as she moved into a retirement home. Once again my siblings were very comfortable with our dealings with Brendon, and his pricing seemed to be right on the ball. We sold the house with no fuss in a fairly short time frame. I am moving house soon and will be ringing Brendon to sell it for me. Thanks Brendon, I am looking forward to dealing with you again soon.
We found Brendon to be honest, trustworthy and friendly when we decided to use him as the agent for the sale of our home. He kept us well informed of progress with open home viewings and prospective purchasers. Brendon has a good knowledge of the real estate industry in Invercargill and we would have no hesitation in using him again or/and recommending him to future vendors.

I'd like to take the opportunity to acknowledge the efforts and energy from Brendon in my recent house purchase. From a buyers perspective his effective communication made the whole process very easy, he was always friendly, responsive, and easy going while still upholding a high level of professionalism. I would have no hesitation in recommending Brendon to friends and family.
We, who were clients of Brendon Burke, would recommend him to anyone wanting to sell their home. Brendon is a listener that gets on with the job. Sold within two weeks. Brendon is a people's person and a perfect gentleman.
-Avis and Searle McKinley
We would have to say Brendon is the epitomy of the phrase 'Persist Pays'. He tried very hard and his feedback was constant. We can recommend his services to anyone selling a property.
-John and Roz Reidpath
I would like to thank Brendon for selling our investment property. He received multiple offers with only being on the market for a week! Thank you for making selling a pleasant experience.
We have found Brendon a real pleasure to deal with in selling two of our properties.He keeps us well informed, with great communication and updates. One we had been trying to sell elsewhere for two years. Once Brendon took over we had offers on the table. We have no hesitation in recommending him to future clients.
-Brian and Sheryl
We found working with Brendon whilst buying our first place out of town an absolute breeze. Great communication & he was happy to answer any questions I had. All done in a very professional manner.
