Amy sold our Remuera Road apartment for us at a time when the market was not buoyant. We were very happy with the sale and price. Amy was always persistent and cheerful despite some ups and downs with buyers during the sale process. Her assessment of the apartment and her involvement and suggestions in preparation for viewing were a fantastic support. She explained processes very well too and I loved her description of the flat for the newspapers. We also had some family difficulties which were affecting the sale preparation, and she was so helpful and supportive. We couldn't have managed so well without her. Overall she was great to work with and we benefited enormously from her expertise and her involvement. She is totally engaged with her clients and we absolutely recommend her to anyone wanting a great realtor who relates well and gets sale with a good price. Wyn & Alison Macleod
From mid January until the unconditional sale of 41 Porterfield Road, I had the pleasure as property manager of working with Amy .
She ran every open home during that time and made frequent trips to Whitford when ever she was needed or asked, going well beyond any expectations of her as the agent.
As the house was unoccupied Amy ensured the interior was well presented. She carried out tasks not ever expected of a listing agent giving the best possible chance of a sale at a price acceptable to the owner. Sweeping, cleaning and general sprucing up.
The property had been marketed by the same owner several times over the last years without a sale . Amy jumped all the obstacles where others had failed. She negotiated with success single-handed with an all but impossible task.Els Mackenzie
"I cannot recommend more highly the personal and professional services provided to me as a vendor by the Meadowbank Barfoot Thompson Sales Team Amy Wilson-Chan and Dawn Buxton. It is a difficult time for anybody having to sell a family home of 17 years. Following a separation it is harder still. It was Amy and Dawn's sensitivity to what was going on for me in my life that made all of the difference in the world to me. Who you are as a person and what you need from them matters to Amy and Dawn. I have no doubt at all that they will work their magic for every one of their clients, not just me. I feel very privileged to have had Amy and Dawn on my team!" Dianne Martin, Barrister
I must relay to you that through the entire 12.5 years that we have lived in Meadowbank, we have declined many offers for sale or appraisal or valuation of our home from many real estate agents. The reason for this is because we were only ever going to go back to Amy whom helped us all those years back to find our first home. My wife and I agree that Amy had taken time to build the level of trust and confidence that has lasted over a decade and resulted in a win for all parties concerned.
The process for selling our home was well explained by Amy and she had taken time to visit us several times as well as constantly keep us fully informed as to what was going on. Because we knew Amy beforehand, we trusted her and her conduct of the open homes to enable a smooth sale, especially so when we reviewed the 'marketing reports' that she provided following each open home weekend. Amy was never been pushy and was helpful throughout the process.At no stage did my wife or I feel at all uncomfortable with how the house was being marketed or what was required of us and when, to facilitate the presentation of our home for viewing.
I feel that Amy demonstrated the perfect level of engagement for us as customers and I am very pleased with the work that she had put in for our sale and the effort that she had made to make us feel comfortable with the whole process. I have asked Amy for help to find my next house and I would recommend her to anyone seeking good, open and valuable service.Euclid Fong and Celeste Pendlebury
If you are looking for a real estate agent who can trust to conscientiously and consistently get the best for you then look no further than Amy. Amy worked with us to very successfully sell our mother's house on St Johns Road. Her advice along the way spot on. She advised us on:
(1) how to present and market the house,
(2) how the interest from open day homes and other agents' visits were
(3) at what financial levels potential buyers were considering,
(4) what reserve price we should be setting and what would happen at the
auction and after.
There is research to be done and a paper trail along the way. Amy steadily and efficiently managed this. Her thorough follow-up contact with potential buyers were invaluable. Because of this we had a good number of people bidding at an exciting auction and achieved a higher than ever-expected price for the house. Along our house-selling journey we felt very well informed, with enough knowledge to enable us to make wise decisions. From the start to completion, Amy absolutely delivered every support she had promised at our initial consultation.Sue Nevezie - St Johns Road
