A very big thank you for the conference. Our Felicity had a great time and benefited greatly. She has come back enthused and in a better spot to accept some changes that we wanted to implement.
- Denise Robinson, Director, Ray White Property Management Works, Dunedin
Thank you so very much John (and Christine!) for a sensational conference. A wonderful line-up of speakers; from which, I have no doubt, every participant will have taken a great deal to enhance their individual businesses.
- Gil Knight, Director, Whittle Knight and Boatwood, Christchurch
We have been very fortunate to have had John as a consultant to our business for a number of years and have benefitted from his experience and depth of knowledge in property management. It has been particularly advantageous to have an external input to provide an alternative viewpoint and fresh ideas.
- Janice Cowdy, Director, Cowdy & Co, Christchurch
We operate a large and progressive property management Company in Central Auckland and I have used the services of John Crocker for many years now. There is no-one in New Zealand more experienced or more competent than John in property management matters. His assistance and guidance have been a major factor in assisting us to grow our business to what it is now. We all enjoy working with John and we will certainly be continuing to use his services in the future.

I first met John in 2008 when he was presenting a seminar on Maximizing Profits in Property Management. At the time I was facing some challenges in the business, and at the seminar John talked about performing a health check on your business. It was 2009 when I contacted him again for advice and guidance to perform a health check and assist me to restructure our business .This was the beginning of an ongoing and invaluable consultancy. John’s intelligent analytical ability, professional guidance and inspirational advice has seen my business become more efficient and profitable. John has been a trainer and a mentor to myself, my Property Managers, and administrators. Through John’s well organized conferences, which are always inspirational due to the high caliber of speakers, I have been fortunate to meet and network with other property managers from throughout New Zealand who share the philosophy of high standards and innovation in how they manage property.

Our property management company have used John Crocker as a consultant three times in a official capacity and numerous time through a support phone call or email. On each of these occasions John’s advice has been invaluable. On each occasion John quickly identified what the issues were and then recommended very practical and measurable steps for us to implement. He was available to us each step of the way and always answered any calls or emails I sent promptly. On two of the occasions we used John’s consultancy service our business was at a real crossroads with some stresses showing. John’s advice and plan has helped us to improve morale and increase productivity and growth in a very small time frame. Although John consults for many businesses he always managed to make us feel very special and his insight and concern for our specific business was exceptional.Any time I am wanting to take our business to the next level, improve our systems or just get some good advice my first point of call is always John.
- Julie Walker, LJ Hooker, Gisborne
We asked John Crocker to help us create a new business model for our property management division. This included changing our remuneration plan for property managers and not continuing doing casual letting which was a large part of our business. It was a big step and we were feeling nervous as to how it would work out but John involved the team and in a non-threatening helpful way eased us through the planning process, setting targets, giving advice and following up. He helped us to get more control over our arrears and increase our fees so we are now a more dynamic, profitable business offering better service to our owners. We also have more time in our day to focus on the basics and we are all less stressed!
