Mary and Barry marketed our home in Epsom. They used a number of different media options including print and internet and through this attracted three bidders to the auction. All bidders were by phone due to the second wave of level 3 Covid-19 however this didn’t affect the bidding and in fact the final sale price was well above our reserve and our expectations. A huge thank you to you both for all your hard work, expertise and constant updates as we went through the promotional period leading up to the auction. We highly recommend these two salespeople to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in Auckland.Yi Gu - Vendor Rangiatea Road, Epsom
I contacted Barry recently to help me find an investment property as interest rates on money in the bank were so low. With the help of his business partner Mary, they showed me a number of properties in various suburbs in Auckland and I was able to secure a very good property in One Tree Hill. Thank you to you both, you are the best!Lan - Buyer Tawa Road, One Tree Hill
This was the first time we had sold a house in New Zealand. Mary and Barry were great at guiding us through the process and carefully explained all our options. Barry has years of experience and Mary has the added bonus of speaking Chinese so they make a fab team! We were very happy with their services.Anita & Gerald Masters - Vendor Wynne Gray Ave, Stonefields
Barry and Mary did an absolutely amazing job in marketing and selling our home in St Heliers during Covid-19. They were restricted on viewing numbers and times to show people through, however that was worked through with careful and professional planning and management and resulted in a successful sale in a reasonably short period of time. We received regular feedback and updates from all buyer appointments.Bill & Bev - Vendor, Kaimata Street, St Heliers
I found Barry easy to deal with and he kept in touch with me with regular emails and telephone calls and drove up to Warkworth with the sale agreement for me to sign.J Ferguson
