"Long before we considered selling our home we knew that we would entrust Carmen with marketing our property. When the time came for us to "move on" we had no hesitation in giving her a call. Carmen's reputation as being the BEST in the business is well known in our area. Her professionalism, energy and enthusiasm and thorough knowledge of the Real Estate market made the process very easy. We felt so relaxed during the 3 - 4 week campaign and Carmen kept us fully informed therefore making it a stress-free experience. Her choice of photographs for the sign board and leaflets were superb and the video of the house and gardens was brilliant. Thank you Carmen for absolutely everything."Luella & Richard Jacobson.
"Carmen has assisted us buy and sell a number of homes in recent years and we cannot speak highly enough of her professional and caring approach to each real estate exercise we've been involved with. Our latest sale is a special case in point as we achieved a fantastic result which far exceeded initial indications of a final price. Our unconditional sale was finalised to our complete satisfaction in less than three weeks - and completed without fuss or stress under Carmen's very capable guidance. We must add we are always impressed by Carmen's innovative and successful approach to each marketing assignment, and we've been totally satisfied with the contact and feedback received during the sales process. We must record our grateful thanks to Carmen for her energy, enthusiasm and commitment to assisting us achieve a best possible result."David & Sylvia - Albany
"We would like to thank Carmen for the professional way she conducted the sale of our property. She kept us informed at all times as to what was happening in the market and followed up on every opportunity to secure a sale. We were well pleased with the final result she achieved in a difficult market."John and Valerie
"Selling our property with Carmen was stress-free and swift. Carmen managed the process end to end with our minimal involvement and almost no family life disturbance. Very professional and easy to work with, Carmen delivered the great result in very short time. Big thanks."Tatjana and Frane
"Are you one of those people who feel Real Estate agents get too much commission from your house sale, that the work that they do is disproportionate to the amount of money that they earn. Well, I was, but this has now changed after having dealt with Carmen. I hadn't sold a property in over fifteen years and soon realised that many things had since changed when I went to sell my one bedroom investment apartment in Albany. However, Carmen walked me through the whole process with ease and was available for contact anytime. We had numerous emails going late into the night. The marketing campaign was simply fantastic. She had two offers wrapped up within five days of going to market. Both offers were above expectations. Unconditional in eleven days! She worked through numerous details in the background; lawyers, body corporate, property manager and purchasers to get things sorted. Even a unaccommodating tenant was persuaded to help. I really did not need to do too much at all. Communication was friendly, clear and prompt and this whole process was achieved without us even meeting. It was all done remotely by phone calls and emails. When you are busy, like me, what more could you ask for. Carmen is in a league of her own. If you want one of the best, look no further!"Duncan Binnie
"Having dealt with Carmen previously, it was a simple decision to choose Carmen to list our house for sale. She advised us on a strategy and marketing plan to sell our house at auction, a method we were unfamiliar with. Every aspect was covered professionally and competently. We were expertly guided through the whole process - from preparation of our house for marketing photography and open homes, to the auction day itself where an excellent result was achieved. We are impressed by Carmen's knowledge of the market, her negotiating skills, her genuinely approachable and friendly personality and with her willingness to go out of her way for us. Thank you Carmen!"Nicola and Stephen Timms
"Thank you for your part in the successful sale of our home recently. We found you to be professional in every way, and we are so pleased we chose you! During our sale process your attention to detail was excellent and your communication was amazing! You informed us all the time of progress, who the interested parties were and at what price level. Your pleasant manner was a hit with the buyers and on auction day, it was clear that they had put their trust in you to help them through the sale process. You, and the rest of the Barfoot & Thompson team on Auction day were really great and there was no doubt everyone was trying their very best to get top dollar for us!
The auction turned out to be a great experience for us and we did get an excellent price. It was lovely to see that our Buyers were just as happy as we were! We would have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends and family if they were considering buying or selling their property."
"We cannot speak highly enough about Carmen. From the moment we decided to list, through to the unconditional agreement achieved with an excellent price, Carmen was amazing. At every stage in the marketing process we were consulted, were listened to, and were actually blown away with the video presentation and the attention to every detail in the campaign. Even the little notes after an Open Home and immediate phone calls made us feel satisfied at the effort we put in towards presentation. In short, there is only one agent in Auckland we would recommend and that is Carmen Holtz."Gillian and Ron McQuilter
"Without hesitation we would recommend Carmen to anyone. She is at all times professional, calm, mature and confident. Any issues that arise are tackled immediately with a positive outcome, always with the vendors requirements in mind. Carmen's honesty and knowledge of real estate law is without question. Carmen works very hard and leaves no stone un-turned when selling your home."Laura & Robert Bradford
"Selling ones house is very personal and stressful experience. The best Agent to choose to partner you in this is first and foremost one with genuinely your best interest at heart. Integrity, professionalism, tenacity, experience, qualification, communication and a proven track record are next on the list. Based on our experience, Carmen is without doubt a "Very Special Real Estate Agent" as she is one of the very few who really ticked all these boxes and delivered. We have no hesitation in recommending her highly."Charles & Cheryl - Greenhithe
"Our sincere thanks for the efforts you put into the recent marketing and subsequent sale of our home. From the outset you were honest in your appraisal re the likely sales price we were likely to achieve and the most effective plan for the marketing process. We were very appreciative of the continual communication we received at all stages of the sales process and your continual cheerfulness at all times. In the end we received a fantastic result and we would like to attribute this to your dedication and professionalism."Malcolm & Linda Burnett - Albany
"Carmen was recommended by a friend who had used her services on more than one occasion. We found Carmen to be highly motivated, very approachable and excellent at keeping us informed at all stages of the process. We felt we could trust Carmen completely which reduced the stress and helped give us peace of mind. Thank you Carmen."Jean and Jo Hindley
"Carmen provided us with an excellent standard of service, her marketing of our property was great and she achieved a great price for us. We were considering selling through a cheaper agency. That would have been the wrong decision. The market Carmen reached for us enabled us to achieve a
sale price that exceeded our expectations and in the end provided excellent value for money.
"Selling a much loved family home is never easy... Carmen not only immediately saw our house through our own eyes, she spent an enormous amount of time and energy making sure that she presented the house to the public in a way that truly told the whole story. She worked tirelessly. Starting by helping us to organize our interiors in a way that would show the rooms at their best in the photographs. She employed an amazing photographer and was attentive to every detail through the photo shoot. She then created a marketing campaign aimed at exactly the right target market. Constantly refining her advertising until an incredible attractive accurate portrait of our house emerged. She supplied us with market feedback from every person that saw the property, giving us a good idea of price expectation so that at Auction we were happy to sell on the day.
Thank you Carmen - you were amazing! And your enthusiasm was contagious."
"Thank you for doing such a marvellous job selling our home. We have bought and sold several different properties and have dealt with a number of different agents - if only we had found you sooner!
Your motivation, professionalism, enthusiasm and positive "can do spirit" puts you into an "elite" category and assured us peace of mind and security that we had indeed found the right person for selling our property."
"When selling our home, Carmen had a multi-level marketing plan rather than a single dimensional sales plan. The price suggested fore sale was right in line with our own ideas and was right for the market. We found Carmen warm, friendly and feedback was regular and frequent. We were happy with the end result and I recommend Carmen to you."Jeff Brook
"Thank you for being our agent and guiding us with the sale of our home. Your enthusiasm and professional efforts have been valued."Jo & Chris
"What a charming person and an excellent high profile sales consultant. Carmen is such a genuine person, of high integrity, full of enthusiasm and motivation but has a sensitivity and rapport with the people she is dealing with, and in giving advice and suggestions. Carmen has a personality which takes the stress out of selling and has the ability and skill to work with both parties to complete the sale. So Carmen thank you. You will be invited to market and sell on our behalf any future properties we choose to sell."Bruce and Heather Shaw
"We were particularly impressed with Carmen's professionalism, her outstanding negotiation skills and her "feel for the deal". She is a person acting with full integrity, calmness and professionalism. Carmen is an upstanding and honest person whom you can trust....We regard Carmen Holtz as one of the North Shore's stand-out residential sales and marketing consultants and are very pleased to be able to highly recommend her to anyone who intends to sell or buy a real estate property."Brandko and Valentina Veljanovski
"We employed Carmen Holtz of Barfoot & Thompson to sell our house recently. Carmen took us through the options and suggested a marketing plan that she felt would suit both ourselves and the property. She suggested a price bracket that we felt was realistic, and it proved to be. She allowed us to make the decisions, respected our privacy and guided us when asked...Thanks to her professionalism, we accepted an offer we were delighted with just two weeks after listing.
In the past we have found selling houses to be very stressful. This time, with Carmen's involvement, her experience in the industry, her advice, friendliness and sensitivity to people and their needs, it was a pleasure."
