Professional [and] extremely knowledgeable
Our property company of 20 years prefers to use Barry Rowe of Duke and Cooke for all our valuations.
Barry is professional, extremely knowledgeable and a nice guy. His valuations are very thorough and an accurate assessment of current market values.
He is accomplished at valuing subdivisions and houses off the plans, which is important for our company’s planning.
Duke & Cooke valuations are a valuable tool for us both when pricing to buy or sell property and for financing.

We confidently refer clients to Duke & Cooke as they are experts in their field
As a business we have dealt with Duke & Cooke and more specifically Barry Rowe since 2006 for all of our house valuations and in that time we have also referred a large number of clients for valuations. The service we receive is always of the highest standard and completed with the timeframe provided, for the agreed price.
Barry also makes himself available with regards to discussions around the residential market in general and has also been very generous with his time to get involved in various seminars and presentations we have hosted.
We confidently refer clients to Duke & Cooke as they are experts in their field and are always professional and reliable. The team here at Milestone Homes all enjoy working with Duke & Cooke and dealing with them is always a pleasure. We look forward to continuing this relationship and working together for many years to come.
