Paul & Alison
Great communication and straight to the point. With Alison, what you see is what you get, she always communicated after open homes with the good and the bad. She has always done what she said she was going to do. She is someone you can trust to sell your house she is above board and very real. She is also generally a good person and you get a good vibe from her. She made the process very calm and she always returned my phone calls and texts when I was unsure. I would recommend Alison and Tall Poppy to sell your house.
Thank you Alison for helping us purchase at Ongare. Alison was the agent acting on the seller’s behalf. But to us, the buyers, Alison provided disclosure and helpful information of details related to the property. Alison communicated really well and was a pleasure to work with. She was friendly, professional and helpful with things we asked her to do - for example going back to the property and getting some measurements. She allowed us the space we needed to do our own due diligence. There was no pressure from Alison to do anything. We felt looked after and supported. We also appreciated the ethos of the Tall Poppy real-estate agency, which we feel is to a higher standard toward the buyer than what we've experienced elsewhere. Alison is great. We highly recommend her and Tall Poppy to anyone looking to buy or sell. Thanks Alison.
Brent & Rebecca
Alison has a great personality and is easy to talk to and professional. Alison has been a great help with us buying her clients house. She has a good knowledge of the area and has helped us with her knowledge of the buying of the house. I would recommend her as a great real estate agent.
Jim & Glenda
We were the buyers in the transaction. We found Alison to be clear in her communications and was very friendly and accommodating of any requests we had (we were buying from afar). Although Alison was obviously working for the vendors, we felt she was fair and also cared about our needs too, which helped to ensure the purchase all went smoothly. Alison has even kept in touch after the completion of the sale to check how we're settling in. When the time eventually comes for us to sell, Alison will be our first call.
Scott & Katana
We chose Alison as the agent for the sale of our property having seen the recent sold properties by her in our area. On meeting Alison for the first time it was clear that she knows her job & market well, with an excellent knowledge of her areas. She excelled again with her professionalism in the quick sale of our home. We really enjoyed having Alison as our agent & wish her continued success in her business.
Paul & Trish
Alison worked with us and achieved an excellent result, through the difficult time of Covid Lockdown.

It is unusual to find such dual skills in a salesperson - hugely professional with excellent empathy.

Murray & Glenis MURRAY
We are the purchasers of the property. We found Alison to be open & friendly, firstly in her initial & then in all subsequent dealings with us. We liked it that she let us look around the property without interruption, after giving us the rundown of all the essential things, eg size of section, where the sun rose & set, quality of the building/background to building itself. She gave us time to decide for ourselves whether this was the home that ticked most of our boxes.
Colin & Diane BURKE
Alison has been professional and very helpful all through the process of purchasing my new home. Always available and friendly. Would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase Real Estate.
I would recommend her to anyone to act as an agent selling your house with your interests at heart. From day one Alison Rudd was very friendly but professional. She informed me in all aspects of selling my property and answered all my questions and concerns. She was very realistic as to what my property was worth and was available 24 hours. I can only say I would recommend her to anyone to act as an agent selling your house with your interests at heart.
I bought a property listed with Alison, she has been amazing through that process, plus added a lot of caring advise for me selling mine at the other end. She went above and beyond, genuine good person.
Alison's goal was to get the best possible deal for the Vendor (Me) Communication was frequent and excellent. Alison respected my needs at all times. Alison's strength is as a Vendors agent. Alison really was the best to get the deal done. Alison went above and beyond to assist me with the purchase of me new home. I highly recommend Alison to you.
I have found working with Alison so easy, as I am not a local and everything has been done by phone or email. She has kept me up to date with everything and been very professional. Answered calls and emails promptly and professionally. I would definitely recommend Alison to any potential seller.
We approached Alison to do an appraisal on our house after her being recommended to us as a 'down to earth' and not the usual 'pushy' agent. When Alison came over, we both felt at ease with her, and knew we could feel comfortable working with her on selling our home. Alison moved quickly for us, as per our 'wants' and her communication was amazing. We never had to phone her for updates, she always was on top of it all. Due to Alison's market knowledge and knowing the buyers, we have had a great result of a very quick sale. I certainly will be recommending her to anyone that is looking at selling.
Mike & Jackie FIRTH
Very easy to work with. We found Alison to be friendly, honest and professional during the purchase of our property. She kept us updated throughout the whole process and was very easy to work with.
Susan & Barry KEATS
A cut above the rest - Alison was an absolute breath of fresh air. Before Alison we were actually flabbergasted at the poor service, follow up and care by agents. We even wondered how they sold anything, but Alison was a rose amongst those thorns. She is helpful, caring and extremely thorough. We found our house because Alison called us with a listing, and said I think I have a house you may be interested in! Throughout our house buying process Alison was supportive in every aspect, from talking through the S&P to answering newbie questions on house buying and communicating and arranging with valuers, building surveyors etc she was just fantastic. If it ever comes time to sell our house, or buy another we wouldn’t go anywhere else. Alison will be our first pick for sure! We can’t speak highly enough of Alison. She gets an 11 out of 10 in our books!
Excellent Choice - Alison made sure the whole experience went as stress free as possible, especially with my elderly parents in the mix. She was extremely communicative and accomplished a sale beyond our expectations so again, we thank you Alison!
Totally professional - My experience with Tall Poppy especially Alison Rudd who was my agent throughout the whole selling experience was very professional and extremely helpful I couldn’t ask for a better agent.
Alison is very professional, efficient and works hard. Alison explains each process well and helps with each stage as it happens.
Professional service – I found Alison to be very knowledgeable in all areas both of market values in the locality and the legalities surrounding the sale of the house. Alison is very good communicator always available to discuss any worries you may have. Alison is friendly and confident which makes the whole process much easier she was a pleasure to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate to use Alison again.
Christine YEOMAN
Alison was courteous, made certain I understood the purchasing process and went the extra mile! If you intend to sell or purchase a property, call an agent with a great deal of experience such as Alison Rudd, who will offer gentle guidance and her knowledge. She’ll make you feel you’re in good hands and you can then trust the process!
Experience and Professional next to none! My partner and I had been on the hunt for a home this year as first time buyers. We jumped into the market at a crazy time and it's been somewhat of an experience. However, thanks to the help from Alison we've finally got the right place at the right price. Throughout the entire process Alison's experience and professionalism was next to none. Alison's communication and honest dialogue towards us as the buyer, was an absolute pleasure. We highly recommend Alison and will be using her when it comes time to sell. Thanks Alison!
A professional but efficient and friendly experience. Tall Poppy can be proud to have Alison in their team. She is very professional in her work and knows her subject; explains terms and conditions of agreement/commitments before asking for signature. Alison was always available, returned phone calls promptly and was helpful through to settlement. Most impressive was the Pre-Settlement inspection where Alison tested and explained operation of all chattels listed in the agreement. We were also able, by mutual agreement, to meet and exchange relevant information regarding service connections, neighbours, etc with the vendors. We are now also connected with Neighbourhood Watch and have already met several of our friendly, helpful neighbours in Hoggard Place. Thank you, Alison.
Kath & Dave FOUNTAIN
I can not recommend Alison highly enough top agent with top attitude. A+A+A+ excellent, diligent, devoted, top professionalism in her attitude, initiative and appearance. Best real estate agent I have had the pleasure of knowing and trusting my property within 35 years. Happy calming attitude that inspires confidence in the vendor & buyers.
Easy sale in Katikati. Alison is a very tenacious agent who works hard to close the deal. She achieved an excellent price in a hot market. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alison and have in fact done so.
Craig & Nikki POOLEY
Thorough and well liked. I found Alison to be very thorough with her knowledge of the rules and regulations for buying a house. She was professional yet funny, someone you can trust right from the word go. Would definitely use Alison again if required.
Alison has always been professional regarding the sale of property. Her market knowledge was up to date and networking ability top notch. Always available to answer my queries and has actually become a good friend.
Ainsley DERMODY & Helen GRAY
Friendly and excellent to deal with. Alison was excellent to deal with, she remembered from previous conversions the situation and she understood my urgency to get things sorted as quickly as possible and kept in contact the whole way through the process.
Great experience. Totally professional from start to finish and a pleasure. Always smiling and encouraging, and returned a better outcome that I ever expected.
Miles & Zeynep MCALISTER
Very professional in all dealings and were always available. A great result for us thanks to Alison and Raewyn. They were easy to deal with and excellent marketing, photos and video of property. They were very professional in all dealings and were always available for any queries which were answered promptly. We would highly recommend Alison and Raewyn to any potential seller.
A very honest, professional agent - Alison was very professional - she was clear about the fact that she was working on behalf of the vendor and conducted herself as such, whilst always maintaining a helpful, pleasant and trustworthy demeanour. She knows her job well and acted swiftly and efficiently at all times. She is a good communicator and her local knowledge came in handy, too.
