I have been working with Bella and Sherry for a number of years, and have found them to be a ‘dynamic duo’ of Auckland real estate. Three words come to mind to describe working with Bella and Sherry – passionate, dedicated, energetic. They are passionate about real estate and the business of selling property, dedicated to achieving the best possible result for clients, and work day and night to achieve this, and energetic in their approach.Dean Wilson
I am delighted with the service I have received. You have been thoroughly professional / knowledgeable and friendly on every contact, thank you for 'encouraging me to bite the bullet' and go to the market with the property, for your confidence in the property and also your expert knowledge.
You have both given me a lot of confidence at all stages of the process. I am delighted we finally chose Sherry and Bella of Barfoot and I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for an estate agent. I will definitely use your services again for future property sales. You have definitely worked hard to get our price in the current market situation.
We met with Bella and Sherry in mid-April 2015 to discuss selling our apartment in Parnell. They immediately started preparing us for 3 weekends of open home before the auction on 20th May. They put in a lot of work and effort in the advertising process. They went above and beyond their call of duty by meeting with us in the evenings and contacting us late at night to ensure everything was going as planned. They spent a lot of time researching about our property and collecting information for prospective buyers. They were extremely professional and organised throughout the entire process. They kept us constantly informed through telephone calls, e-mails, texts and meetings. Having them as our agents took the stress of selling from us as we trusted them completely. They sold our place the day of the auction and we are very pleased with the results.
We would highly recommend Bella and Sherry as real estate agents for selling a property. They have an excellent partnership/team and work well together. Should we every want to purchase or sell a property, we would not hesitate to engage these wonderful real estate professionals again.
"It is with pleasure and gratitude that we share comments on our experience with Bella Stefano in the listing and sales of the residential property that was owned by our church.
We found Bella to be very professional and ethical. She showed competence, humility, integrity and grace in all her dealing with us. She guided us through the process in a manner that gave us confidence.
Her experience was obvious. She did a brilliant job of the marketing, ensuring that the prospective purchaser was aware of all the positive attributes of our property. She arranged photography and marketing that showed the property to its full potential. Not only that but she was able to find a very interested prospective buyers from the immediate neighbourhood and to create an atmosphere of competition by having several people registered to bid at the auction.
We found that Bella is very much a team player. She is more than willing to work with her colleagues to utilise the expertise they may have. Bella achieved a more than satisfactory result for us at the auction. Our property sold easily at the first auction at a time when properties in the immediate vicinity were not selling. We would definitely recommend Bella for anyone needing to sell their property. From the moment that we made contact with her she was careful to keep us informed of the total process each step of the way. Thus, we highly recommend Bella Stefano for residential real estate needs."
We met with Bella and Sherry around Sept 2014 when they appraised our home at 8 Deborah Hatton Lane, Mt Wellington. At the time I was very impressed with them as I am sure it is a very cautious time for Vendors when selecting potential Agents to represent one's property sale. We were not quite ready to list at the time due to developing the outside area and asked them to approach us again in January. They did an excellent pitch. They both made the sale process very easy and comfortable for us, explaining things where necessary, offering valuable advice, sympathetic to the emotions of selling one's home, giving regular feedback and there was never a sign of over bearing tactics. On the day of the Auction, the professionalism continued and we were very happy with the outcome of our sale. Between Bella and Sherry we had the very best outcome, achievable only through their dedication to obtain for us the right price.
Bella and Sherry - thank you so much, you made this work for us and looking back we are so happy with the whole process. Together you are a great team!
Bella, Sherry are a formidable team. They put 110 percent into everything they do, and you can't help but be impressed by their dedication and professionalism. They have a wide range of experience, reach, and knowledge, which I am sure will bring them and their clients success whatever the project.Kitty Fan
