Alan you did a great job. You knocked on my door 3 years ago. You stayed in contact. You found the right buyer when I was ready and you got me a great price that was above my expectation. From start to finish. I highly recommend you and your service.Paul Shrier, Cockle Bay
Alan it was a pleasure working with you during recent council matters. You were approachable, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful in getting this issue concluded quickly and efficiently. A good result for everyone.David S. Auckland Council"
We are immigrants from Brazil and to buy a property in New Zealand was the biggest step we have taken here. I had to get funds from Brazil and it all depended on trust. We don't know the houses here. We don't know the market. We cant afford a mistake. We saw Alan in the open home. It was very good but we did not want to spend that sort of money. He listened to me. Really listened. He phoned and kept in contact and then made a list and he took us to 4 properties and the second last one was exactly what we were looking for. He arranged inspector from a panel, he provided list of lawyers, banks and mortgage brokers and we chose from his list and then he followed up with our choice. He did everything and a little more. I would phone maybe 11pm and he would answer. Great service. He did everything. We are so happy in our new home. He still contacts us to see our happiness.Oscar Colonetti, Dannemora
Our family owned the plaster home and we did not know how to start the selling process. What to do? I saw Alan in the Open Home and he seemed so genuine and helpful. He stayed in contact and I spoke to him a year later about helping us with this issue. He came through, I listened and did exactly what he told me to get the top price. I painted, put carpet in, did garden work, new oven and we stage. He came and supervise everything for me. So I can do my work. Market is really not good. We start the selling process and he give reports and phone me everyday with progress. Good agent. We have pre-auction offer and we sold. All done. Very good result in a slow market. He took all the hassle away. I recommend him.E Goh, Ellerslie
The result was excellent. His architectural knowledge came in very handy. We spent very little because of that and our marketing was unbelievable I could not believe that my mother and Alan was on a video. It was very professional. My parents had owned the home for nearly 60 years and he was really good and understood what we needed to do. We had never sold a house before and it was not a great property market but we sold at auction with lots of bidders. Top price achieved in the street. Exciting and rewarding.Carollyn Nogotautama, Mangere East
Alan always come my restaurant and he was agent. We want to sell and he say I must stage the 2 best rooms and he help keep costs down. Very good video & marketing
We went auction and it sold at auction for the great price. I will always use Alan. Best agent.J Lin, Blockhouse Bay
I am a painter and I know Alan because of my work. I see he helps the vendors get the house ready. He always selling many properties. He help me by selling
my property and he help me buy the property. He always helpful and listening. He great.T Chong, Pakuranga
"Alan, thanks for everything as far as the sale of our home. As you know we had tried to sell 18 months ago but couldn't get to our reserve in a booming market with a top agent from your competition. Your advice and marketing helped us achieve many more people through the open homes and $150,000 higher price than at the previous auction. Well done"Amanda Rackham, Brisbane Australia.
"We met Alan Phillips in a bit of a whirlwind after he rang me to make a time to bring some prospective buyers through our home, which was advertised with another Barfoot office. I was impressed by his enthusiasm and thoroughness on the phone and by the effort he made to get to know me and put me at ease with him very quickly. When Alan arrived with his buyers I was this time impressed by his professionalism and genuine interest in showing them around our home. He was full of ideas and information and seemed to know his buyers extremely well, pointing out features of our home that he knew they would like while at the same time learning more about what my family was looking for in a sale as far as conditions went. Only a few hours later Alan met us as we headed out of town to bring us an offer which more than exceeded our expectations and we felt that Alan had really created a win : win for both ourselves and his buyers. Alan worked extremely hard over the next 24 hours to keep us in the loop as the condition on the sale was met and again he impressed us by having our sale 'unconditional' by the following day. Overall we feel that Alan really exceeded our expectations as he made us feel as we were very important to him and that our sale was at the forefront of his mind at all times. Nothing was a problem and he genuinely thought outside the square on every occasion to ensure the process was as smooth for us as possible. We would not hesitate recommending Alan hands down to anyone looking to achieve a terrific result in selling their home in a timely manner, nor to anyone seriously looking to find 'their own' dream home. We believe it is rare to find someone with as much enthusiasm alongside a genuine 'listening and comprehension' of his clients as Alan showed us. Thanks Alan for an excellent experience."E & D McAlister, Beachlands.
"I have sold 3 houses and I have bought 3 houses with Alan Phillips. He is our agent whenever we are thinking property. Both Alan and Tracy have been incredible."Colin Brown, Somerville
"Having been searching for our ideal home for over two years, we finally found a place that ticked nearly all of the boxes. Our few reservations were quickly dispelled when we spoke with Alan, who was passionate about the house, and pointed out all the features which might not have been obvious from a short inspection. From that point on, we inherited Alan's passion and were determined to secure the property. However, the undoubted excellent quality of the house and the way that Alan and Tracy presented it, made us feel sure that it would be out of our price range, but Alan had an inkling of what that might be and felt that we may have a chance. Alan actually assisted us at the auction, as the clients of other agents were also bidding, and the hammer came down at fractionally below the reserve price. While it was just above our original budget, it was a very fair price, and I know that both parties were absolutely delighted with the result.
While many properties at the same auction were being passed in, not having reached the reserve, the difference here was that Alan worked passionately with both the vendor and the purchaser, resulting in the perfect deal for all concerned. And to top it all off, Alan's after-sale service has been amazing, making the whole process a walk in the park.
Alan and Tracy are a great team, and I can thoroughly recommend them to anyone looking to sell or buy a property. Thanks so much Alan and Tracy."Eric Neal, Golflands
"We really got a great result. The presentation was great. The marketing was great. The communication was great. The service was great. The price was great. Great work from Alan and Tracy."Peter Roper, Dannemora
"Alan Phillips and his team did a remarkable job selling our property in less than 3 weeks. I would recommend any seller to deal with him as their work was of a very high standard and the advice on presentation was excellent. I have no doubt that the presentation and staging made a huge difference to the amount we received at auction."Glenys Smith, Howick
"Alan, as a real estate agent, exceeded my expectations with regards to the effort he put in to assisting me with the preparation for the sale. . He gave useful tips and made suggestions in ways to improve the appearance of my house to achieve a good price. Alan also kept me well informed throughout the process."Duncan Muggeridge, Somerville
"Alan was very professional in selling the property but more importantly he knew how to add value to the property experience as an architectural designer.
Ultimately he achieved the maximum price for the property well above expectation"Kanu Patel, Melons Bay
"I would recommend Alan to anyone. He gets the job done from start to finish, with honesty, integrity and with the feeling that you could trust this man with anything. What could have been an harrowing experience turned in to the best experience. This was my 3rd house to sell and so can honestly say Alan was the most informed and on to it agent I have ever met. It had been an absolute pleasure."Sheila Kite, Manurewa
"1st class real estate sales professional!"David Wei Sun, Huntington Park
"Alan comes across as a person who has a genuine interest in who you are, he appears to go the extra mile to make sure that both the seller and buyer are happy with the outcome. In all of our dealings with Alan we have found him a most professional person."Warren Barrett, Huntington Park
"I have found that Alan is interested in the person he is working for and he goes out of his way to ease the transition for his client. I met him when he knocked on my door, looking for property to sell. He learned that I could be interested if I was presented with a deal I could not refuse. That happened. I then decided to move closer to family out of town and release some of the capital tied up in my home, for use in my retirement. Not only did he sell my home for a very good price but he helped me find a suitable section and builder for my next home and is also helping me to find somewhere to live while it is built. Alan helps reduce the stresses involved when making life changes, late in life. I would recommend Alan to anyone who is wanting someone who is more than just a product salesman." E. King, Somerville
"Alan Phillips has time and time again proven himself to be the consummate real estate agent. He was instrumental in helping my family secure the property of our dreams. Although many agents can help in purchasing a property, Alan has been at his best with the after sale issues. These include introducing us to a quality home inspection, a very professional solicitor, and he sorted out all the issues for us. Alan has been our trouble shooter and advisor regarding any concerns we may have regarding our property. We have not only found a terrific agent, we have made a great friend!"J Xu, Howick
"When we decided to sell our property our salesperson, Alan Phillips, was very efficient and gave us a well prepared market appraisal. He advised us on how to improve the outside and inside of the house to get a better price when selling and we definitive reaped the reward. When we were a bit nervous about how things went, he calmed us down and told us that we really don?t have to worry, everything will work out well and it did. Thanks for the great marketing presentation of our house and the continual personal contact. I wish Alan every success and know his enthusiasm and passion will ensure amazing results." Christo and Marlene N, Golflands
"We met Alan during one his open homes. That house didn't meet our needs, so we told Alan and he noted our requirements. The next day, he called and informed us that he found a property that was perfect for us! The property he found for us was exactly what we were looking for. The entire buying process from then on was quick and smooth. We appreciate the effort and attention to details that Alan exerts in the process."Hugh & Leanne K, Golflands
"Alan goes the extra mile for his clients - he gets to know ''how they tick'' and does his utmost to match property and client. He is unwavering in his efforts to find you your "dream home" and is genuinely interested in seeing the process through from selling one home to purchasing the next." Murray and Glenda O, Howick
"I want to thank you for being such a great estate agent. You really took your time to think about what I wanted and needed for my circumstances. You were the only one, out of all of the agents I contacted, that kept looking for me. I wish you all the best in selling future homes." Georgie W, Howick
"Wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your help with the purchase of a new home and then the sale of my existing home. Being a woman on my own and never having been involved in the auction process it was great to have your help and understanding. Your assessment of the price I could achieve at auction was spot on. Alan I would have no hesitation recommending you to anyone considering marketing their home." Wendy F, Howick
