Faced with the challenge of selling my former family home due to a relationship property dispute, a number of days to prep the property for sale and only a 3 week marketing campaign due to a looming Auction date, all I can say is I couldn't have done it without Geraldine, she was an absolute super star.
With as little as 3 days to prepare the property to market, Geraldine took charge and managed the entire process seamlessly. She co-ordinated and arranged staging, and professional photography all within very tight deadlines and would never hesitate to meet contractors at the property to get jobs done, she dealt with all legal matters professionally, gave great advice and kept me well informed on all aspects of the campaign.
Geraldine has a very caring nature and was very easy to relate to, she is a true sales professional and was an absolute pleasure to deal with, she made me feel at ease through a very difficult process and I thank her very much for all her efforts all of which resulted in a great sales result under the hammer on Auction day.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Geraldine to anyone who is seeking a professional sales agent who listens, understands their needs, is hardworking and reliable and who has a caring and compassionate nature.

Geraldine and Mehran Zareian recently marketed our house in Browns Bay. This they did over the Christmas period, and even though they had achieved getting a pre-auction offer which was acceptable to us prior to Christmas, they worked hard to introduce the property to other potential buyers in the hope of getting us a premium result. The auction was called in early to take place on 6 January 2016 and with several bidders on the day a premium was achieved. We were thrilled with the result.
Both Geraldine and Mehran were totally professional at all times - very calming and very positive - resulting in us feeling much less stressed as we went through the process of selling and buying
Geraldine was superb in keeping us informed and in the loop at all times. This was much appreciated, and made us feel very comfortable and confident of the whole process.
A great result was achieved by a very professional team. We would highly recommend
Geraldine and Mehran to anyone who is looking to sell or buy property.

Nigel Road Browns Bay

You were amazing throughout the whole sales process of my property at 1A Nigel road, Browns Bay. From the very beginning Geraldine was always very professional and straightforward in every aspect and always kept me well informed all the way through. This included the weekly updates and regular phone calls. Geraldine is truly a genuinely honest and sincere person and does not fit the preconceived real estate agent profile at all. Geraldine handled the whole process efficiently and professionally and the most importantly the result was amazing, the price achieved at the auction was way over our expectation. I will certainly recommend Geraldine to all my friends and contacts. Lee

Maureen and I would like to Thank Geraldine and Mehran for the successful sale of our home. You sold it in 7 days for a sale price we were very happy with. Your attention to detail was FIRST CLASS, you covered every aspect in a very professional manner and we would if required use your services again and have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone that would like a stress free sale on their property.

Weatherly Road Torbay

Geraldine was a total pleasure to work with. She was extremely helpful assisting us with the purchase of our new property despite knowing that if we didn't secure the house at tender she wouldn't be selling our house as we weren't in a rush to move. Geraldine is very knowledgeable of the local housing market and was totally honest over the expected sales price from the beginning. She has a fantastic team behind her who work seamlessly together. Due to their hard work we had a pre-auction offer within a week and sold for a higher than anticipated price two days later.
We would definitely recommend Geraldine and her team to anyone selling their home.

County Road Torbay

This was my first time selling a property and I didn't really know where to start. From our first meeting, Geraldine was professional and practical with what I needed to do. She gave me a timeline of what would happen and when - I found this essential to keeping everything on track and this also helped me not to feel overwhelmed.
Geraldine was able to work around my family, pet and work commitments which ensured the selling of my home caused the least interruption as possible to our daily life. After each Open Home, Geraldine would leave me feedback of people through and comments from prospective buyers
Geraldine presented several pre auction offers and at no time did I feel she was pushing me to accept or decline an offer. I feel that with her knowledge and expertise I was able to make an informed decision on these.
Prior to the Auction I thought I would be incredibly stressed, however because Geraldine had prepared me so well I actually felt relatively relaxed.
Come Auction Day and everything went off without a hitch!!! I feel confident that Geraldine marketed my home to achieve the best possible price which was above my reserve!!!
I would definitely recommend Geraldine to anyone thinking of selling.

"Being a Senior Citizen, I found Geraldine helpful beyond measure. Her enthusiasm and approach to all aspects of the sale were very professional, along with thoughtfulness and consideration."

"You listened and only showed us what we wanted in a house. We feel this is why you sold our house so quickly, because you listen to what the buyer wants. Your friendliness and honesty with us was much appreciated and we would not hesitate to recommend you to family and friends, and when we decide to move you will be our first phone call"
Debbie & David

"You created competition within a slow market and had interested parties before the property was even advertised. The marketing strategy was excellent. I was surprised at how easily the sale was concluded. I found your service to be extremely professional and flexible. I will highly recommend you to anyone who wants to buy or sell property in your area."
Murray Weatherston, Principal Financial Advisor

"After 34 years of bringing up a family and many happy memories it was a difficult time for us, and without the professional and kindly help of Geraldine and Mehran, it would have been a lot more stressful. The dedication and hard work was quite incredible. We are very thankful and would not hesitate to recommend this professional and very kind couple to deal with any real estate needs that may be required."
Bette and Warren

"We had previously had our house with another agent for 3 months! In our initial interview we were impressed that she did not make any promises or make any bold statements about her client base. We honestly believe this is the way Real Estate should be done and will be in the future. Geraldine is a great example of how a great real estate salesperson should be. Thank you!"
Lindsay & Eugenie

"In a slowing housing market you succeeded to sell our home to our satisfaction within 4 weeks, while neighbouring houses remained on the market long after we had moved. This tells its own story!"
Colleen & Willy

"I couldn't have asked for a more sympathetic, understanding person to land on my doorstep, for which I will always be extremely grateful for. Geraldine gave me excellent advice and absolutely no pressure - the most realistic appraisal, that I felt was more in keeping with the market and surrounding area."

"Geraldine is different! She will actually listen to what Vendors have to say and take the appropriate action. She has a good work ethic combined with correct attitude to being an Agent i.e. work for the Vendor."

"We described to Geraldine exactly what we were looking for. She listened, understood and that was what she worked on. She showed us only properties which might suit us - so different from our previous experiences with real estate agents. Within a week, we'd found the perfect home for us.
Geraldine is professional, realistic, practical and appropriately friendly. We would certainly recommend her to anyone needing real estate advice and help"
Eileen and Kieron

"She was always available and approachable for our random concerns/questions and out of hours texts and emails. Her honesty and integrity allowed us to trust her fully - which meant a lot as it we were looking for our first home and were also pregnant with our first child.
She has an intimate knowledge of the local market and current property trends, a solid work ethic and she always put us first. We also had some good laughs with her which was important to us"
Leon and Zoe

"Due to financial reasons, I had to sell my home of 25 years, a process I was dreading.
As this was my first home, selling was a totally new experience for me. But by putting the Sale of the House in the capable hands of Geraldine Zareian, I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Geraldine outlined everything for me before the house went onto the market, in a clear & concise manner. Any doubts or questions were quickly answered by her.
Fast & smooth, and an experience that was a pleasure all the way through!
I can highly recommend Geraldine to any prospective Vendor out there"

"Our dealings with Geraldine in the selling of our house have been amazing. She was like an old friend to us in her warm manner and great sense of humour, but always came off very professional and knowledgeable about selling in the local area. She always kept in touch with us and kept us informed every step of the way.
We feel that Geraldine's knowledge in her field and helpful strategies contributed to obtaining a great price for our property, and she made what could be a very stressful time in our lives simple and painless"
Richard and Leonie

"I had seen a few other agents, but when I meet Geraldine I knew she was going to be the best person to look after the sale of my home.
Geraldine, on her first visit, she was able to explain the entire process, draw me a time line, show me exactly how things would work, Geraldine has a tremendous "grasp" of the market and possesses that intuitive feeling as to what a house is really worth and how well it will sell, as I had no ideas of the process.
She made me feel very confident that she would be able to take this huge task off my shoulders, and manage it for me and she did and she did it well"

"We could not have asked for more, the professional manner in which you approached the sale of our property, gave us much reassurance and confidence, not mention confirming to us that you were the right person for the job.
Your straightforward manner, honesty and responsiveness to our questions and concerns throughout the sale was refreshing, likewise, we were extremely impressed with your local market knowledge, positive sales technique"
Mike and Pauline

"Throughout our dealings with her in marketing and selling our own property, we found her to be genuine and down-to-earth, whilst always professional, providing us with informed guidance on the best way to sell our home.
We enjoyed regular communication with her, and were always kept up to speed through clear and thorough feedback after open homes.
Nothing ever seemed to be too much trouble, and Geraldine always made time to answer our (many) questions"
Dean and Shirley

"We can wholeheartedly, without prompting, recommend Geraldine Zareian as being very professional but who is also friendly & approachable with a lovely manner.
Our home sold on the first open weekend at a price higher than we had hoped for.
You are a very good listener and have an excellent understanding of the local market.
You made it so easy, Geraldine, thank you"
Pat and Mike

"Geraldine is 'Simply the Best'."
