"Sarah and Annie are an absolute class act. They are the epitome of professionalism and deliver the utmost of honesty, integrity, wealth of knowledge, fantastic communication and personality with a smile and great sense of humour. We cannot recommend them highly enough and are extremely grateful to them for making the sale of our house a complete pleasure. Three cheers for Annie and Sarah, they are truly the very best choice to sell your home." Charlotte & Francine
"I cannot speak highly enough of Sarah & Annie and the great team that they are. They are both a 10 out of 10 in my book and I am not surprised that they have been the top sales people in their area for some time. Their communications were excellent, prompt and no question asked was too small or went unanswered and was explained in clear simple terms. They recommended in my case re-carpeting and painting the interior of my house, which I agreed needed doing. They were able to recommend an excellent painter and carpet layer and both of these trades people did excellent work at very competitive prices. When I asked for colour suggestions their advice made sense and with Annie's experience in interior decorating the result was a good modern and refreshing makeover. The overall result reflected a good price that reflected the improvements done and a quick sale too. These lovely ladies are also very tech savvy and their use of virtual staging, for example was impressive. They go above the call of duty and I highly recommend them to anyone who is considering buying, selling or even just wanting some advice. Thank you both!" Rob
I really cannot speak highly enough of the whole experience with Annie & Sarah. Their support was there from the first day right through to post settlement. It has been most appreciated, and I can't thank them both enough.Grant
It is my great pleasure to recommend the services of Annie, for the professional management of the sale of my property, and the manner in which she guided me through the marketing, legal requirements, and process of sale of my property. Her approach was to ensure that I comprehended the different options available to achieve the sale objectives appropriate to my circumstance and property characteristics. Annie demonstrated great integrity through honesty, reliability and respectfulness. She was patient and supportive, concise and available, and demonstrated a profound knowledge of the real estate industry. It is quite remarkable to find a person who is professional, caring, of such wise counsel, and altruistic.
It is important to note that there is a very effective working relationship between Annie Yong-Mewburn and Sarah Benbow, as they tandem the sales process in a competent and seamless style, which obviously complements the Barfoot & Thompson philosophy and values. Additionally, I would commend the Greenhithe office for their welcoming and approachable manner in all instances. Christine
Annie knew the market extremely well; her knowledge of similar recent sales was comforting when she gave us our appraisal (which was higher than we were anticipating). It was great that the auction delivered an even higher price! Very happy!! We chose Annie to sell our house because of her local market knowledge and her previous sales success. From the moment, we first sat down with Annie we knew we had chosen the perfect agent to sell our
house. It was evident from the start that Annie was very experienced in her profession, but her previous experience with interior design also helped us present the house better than we could have hoped. Annie was very approachable, always took time to answer our queries, reassured us when we needed it, and in the end achieved a sale price that was far in advance of what we had even hoped for! Thanks Annie, you're a star!! James & Emma
Annie was strongly recommended to us by a friend, we are grateful for the recommendation since Annie out performed even our friends glowing recommendation. Annie sold our house in Kereru Grove in an amazingly short time of 7 days!! Thanks, and all the best. Robert & Wendy
We really appreciated Annie's suggestions regarding the "dressing' of the house, which helped to showcase our home perfectly. Annie was helpful, efficient, friendly and professional. We will definitely recommend Annie and Sarah to our friends and family. Thank you for your amazing service. Pleasure to have Annie and Sarah sell our wonderful home; we are extremely grateful for their efforts and for a great result. Mark & Fiona
Annie did a superb job in marketing and selling our property. She is knowledgeable about the market, honest in her appraisal of price and prospects, and fantastic at responding to requests and providing feedback. I have yet to encounter a better real estate agent and if I sell or buy another home, Annie will definitely be my go-to person. I don't often tick 'excellent' boxes but Annie was superb in the marketing and selling of our home.
She is a great ambassador and asset for Barfoot. Gilbert & Lesley
Annie was outstanding. She is professional, knowledgeable and is ready to share what she knows with you. She is very approachable and was available whenever we had a query or needed some affirmation or encouragement. She was enthusiastic and excited through the whole process and assured us of a good outcome. She let us know after each Open Home how many people had attended and if she thought anyone needed special mention. She was very supportive as we got near to the auction day as we were very nervous about the outcome. She celebrated with us when our property sold even though her buyer
was unsuccessful. I would not hesitate to recommend Annie to any of my friends and colleagues. Thank you Annie for a job very well done! Annie's immense knowledge of interior design and her recommendations and comments she made to us about getting our home ready were spot on. We followed her plans precisely and we are convinced that
this made the difference in getting the price we got. Annie has enormous talents and we can see that she will go far in her career. She builds rapport easily and is always positive and encouraging. She truly is a pleasure to work with and you are fortunate to have her in your branch! Paul & Zelda
Annie is a well presented, down to earth, friendly and outgoing lady. Her & I established a repoire immediately which developed into a friendship. I gave her free reign with suggestions to help me present my place for sale. With her background in interior design, I may not have liked everything she suggested, but I had to concede she knows what she's talking about after getting so many favourable comments. Annie goes out of her way to provide exceptional service - an example of this was providing me with her linen to help present my property to help achieve lightness and spaciousness. Annie provides a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the different cultures and this exceptional talent proved itself invaluable
time and time again. Annie is one of those exceptional impressionable ladies who listens to you. Thank you Annie. Linda
Fortunately, we have chosen Annie to sell our house. Every day since we are convinced we have the best agent in town. She is professional, energetic, driven, genuinely likeable and very smart in her promotional strategies and knowledge of the market. Very soon she proved herself by selling our home well before tender. Annie has earned our respect. We will definitely appoint her if we ever need a real-estate agent again. Theng & Hock
We have now sold two houses and bought two houses through Annie. Her professionalism, integrity and extraordinary enthusiasm is exceptional. We wouldn't consider any other agent - she really is the best! Clare & Andy
Annie is a very approachable and humble person who is a human first before being a business person. She quickly realises your needs and wants and advises you all through your purchase or selling and does what is best for you. She is religious, believes in humanity and acts accordingly. Annie is reliable and is very dedicated to her work with excellent work ethics.
I will recommend Annie and her services to anyone without any hesitation. Thank you Annie for selling my property as well as settling me in a good house in a well sought after area -
Greenhithe. I feel surrounded by a group of elites. Annie is Great! Try her! Manor
I was actually dreading the process of marketing and selling our home but working with Annie made it easy. We cannot speak highly enough of her knowledge, professionalism, enthusiasm and sheer drive and hard work which, together with her friendliness, honesty and openness yet unerring attention to our needs and expectations, made the selling process as pain-free as possible. We would have absolutely no hesitation at all in recommending Annie to market and sell anyone's property. (A note for the agency: Following a humiliating auction experience 12 years ago with a different real estate company, we felt incredibly let down by this process yet again and it was only Annie and her commitment that got us over
the hump this time. I in particular find it hard to believe auction is still touted as "the way to go", especially when talking with friends and family amongst whom only one has had a positive "auction" experience and that was only due to a pre-auction offer, a situation that would have arisen anyway I believe because the buyers obviously wanted the house. We were also extremely disappointed in the role the Branch Manager played (read, didn't play) in the process; the first time we actually met him face-to-face was when the auction didn't even register a bid and we were presented with ridiculous post-auction offers.)
