#2 Salesperson, Onehunga Branch for 2019
I believe that quality communication, an old-fashioned work ethic plus my passion and enthusiasm for helping my clients achieve great outcomes, are key factors in my success as a real estate salesperson. It's also why my clients keep coming back.
My strong communication skills and dedication to delivering outstanding customer service, was honed in previous years working in the public sector (including local government and healthcare). I’ve lived in the area for 45 years, and with 15 years’ working experience with borough and city councils (specialising in Onehunga, One Tree Hill, Hillsborough, Mangere Bridge and nearby), I have considerable local knowledge and valuable local contacts.
Since joining Barfoot & Thompson’s Onehunga office in 2003, my formula has proved to be a winner. Eight times I have won the top salesperson title and I’ve consistently been one of the branch’s highest performers.
I believe emphasis on listening to what my clients want and need, and then delivering, is of the utmost importance. Satisfaction for me comes from achieving a fantastic outcome for my clients and in bringing together two satisfied parties.
Liz and Digna are so approachable, friendly, warm and honest with a wonderful communication style. They also knew what the buyers really wanted so that tells me they took the time to really listen to their clients.
I would never use other salespeople or another company. They truly are invested in their clients, not just the sale. I have only ever sold and bought with Barfoot & Thompson but have had dealings with other agencies which I did not enjoy at all.
Liz and Digna are truly the best!Fiona Crawford - Hoskins Avenue, Hillsborough
Liz and Digna turned out to be the dream team for us. I could see the market turning and didn’t want to commit to selling, but they laid out all the options and listened to any queries or concerns we had. Liz took the lead throughout the selling process and was great to deal with, and when the buyer came along, the negotiations were handled quickly and professionally. To top things off, Liz and Digna then found us a house that matched our criteria and wasn’t even on the market. Job done, talk about a win-win team. JRachel Stone & Justin Deery
We recently sold our home with Liz and Digna and would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to list their property. From the start, Liz and Digna showed integrity and professionalism. They brought many interested buyers through our home but they were always very discreet and careful to fit around what suited us. We had regular email reports on viewers and their comments and we always felt that we were kept up to date.
Liz and Digna have a friendly manner and are very easy to work with. They have made the whole process of selling our property a smooth and easy transition.Andy & Lizette
Liz and Digna are very good salespeople who understand the market and were able to sell the property under challenging conditions. Very good experience throughout what became a protracted sales process - largely due to timing. Liz and Digna had to re-strategize as the market conditions changed. The auction did not result in a sale so this resulted in a change of tactics that worked. It brought in new buyers and as a result of this the house sold at a price that was in line with the market. I was happy with the result.Jason George
I loved working with Digna and Liz. They made the whole process of selling my home easy and trouble-free. They provided an amazing service, arranging for the home to be staged and making the whole process simple and easy to follow. Their attention to detail was over-and-above what I expected. As the campaign proceeded, they kept me informed of the progress and interest in the property regularly. The auction reached a great result that exceeded my expectations since the market had been softening over the previous three months - all thanks to the amazing team of Digna and Liz. Thank you Liz and Digna, for all you did to achieve such a great outcome.Anne Shaw

A fantastic team with amazing service!!!!!
Digna and Liz are an absolute pleasure to work with. We are so grateful for all the hard work Digna and Liz have done to help us sell our home. They both made the process simple and easy to understand for us and we much appreciated their patience and expertise, especially working under covid restrictions. We are endlessly grateful to have had them both working for us as our agents and thank them so much for their hard work and valuable insight. We would definitely recommend Digna and Liz to anyone who is wanting to buy or sell and sincerely thank them both for their excellent service.
Digna and Liz our salespeople, were wonderful. Without their help I don’t think we could have coped with the sale of our house. They are both friends forever because they cared about my husband and myself and they kept in touch every day.James & Patricia Mulligan
Digna and Liz are Stars
Both ladies were awesome. Without their support we would have given up hope but they believed in us and our house. We will forever be so amazed at their care and professionalism towards Jimmy and I. Thank you both sooo much.Pat & Jim Mulligan
"Digna did a fantastic job selling our family home. She is very professional, knowledgeable and patient. Digna explained the process in detail, also giving us some great tips on how to improve our home to meet the market demands to gain maximum results, which we were very pleased with.
If we had any questions or concerns, Digna was always there when we needed her, and was more than happy to help in any way she could. We highly recommend Digna as a top professional salesperson, and we look forward to working with her again some time in the future."Helen Lockley, Monique & Mervyn Egen
Digna Clark and Liz Byers helped us sell our cottage, by auction, in Onehunga. The result was very successful. They were open and honest in their appraisals and opinions and gave us some excellent advice on presentation. Their eye for those little details that we might have missed was crucial in obtaining an excellent result.
We particularly remember their advice to paint a certain section of fence. It only took about an hour all up, but the difference was monumental in the overall appearance of the property. It took their experienced eye to pick up on this. Without this advice we would have completely missed this detail which once completed seemed so obvious.
At no stage did they ever force anything on us or make us feel pressured. They clearly presented the financials and the various options and left the decision making to us without pressuring us. They answered any questions and gave us excellent advice.
They gave full updates on all the open homes and the numbers of interested parties. As well they presented regular weekly reports and market information that was pertinent to the area and our particular property.
We will certainly use Liz and Digna should the opportunity arise and we strongly recommend them.
Over the years we have bought and sold a number of property's through agents and we would certainly put Liz and Digna at the top because of their open and honest communication.Kevin & Valerie Menzies
Thinking of selling your property? Feeling anxious and overwhelmed by the process?
I was, after all it was our family home, we'd lived here for 30+ years. We met Liz Byers and Digna Clark in their office in Onehunga. They were very professional and walked us through the process, assuring us that everything could be done in our time.
Absolutely no pressure, it took me a couple of months to make contact again and we were now committed to selling. Liz and Digna walked us through the process, always being professional, courteous, and just so helpful.
We sold our property, with a great result, and this was due to the fact that we had a fabulous team working for us. Selling your property can be a rewarding experience, if you have the right sales team and we would highly recommend Liz and Digna, a great couple of ladies.Vicki Leevey & James Smith

Through her knowledge and experience, Digna made it a smooth and efficient process.

Digna and Jock made the whole process much easier than we thought it would be. They were professional, helpful, reliable and considerate.

We happily recommend them to anyone who is thinking of selling and have told friends and neighbours that they can't do any better than Digna and Jock."John and Christine Stairmand

"Digna is always available, either in person or by telephone. She is very professional, never appears rushed or in a hurry to leave to attend to other matters. She is always immaculately dressed, always smiling and willing to discuss in detail particulars the client may not understand, guiding them through the process of selling and auctioning their property. Her marketing campaign is clearly outlined, the written feedback after each Open Home is precise and easily followed, and she is very receptive to any questions regarding all aspects of the selling process. I cannot recommend Digna highly enough.Jocelyn Bullock
"I have both bought and sold property with Digna. On both occasions, I found her to be someone passionate about real estate and someone who makes things happen - very quickly if required.
She knows the central suburbs very well, clearly has great contacts, and doesn't mess around. Most importantly, she is trustworthy and will give proper advice with your benefit in mind. I have had that demonstrated in quite specific ways, which I am sure that must have been one of the biggest keys to her success over the years. An experienced, professional service and a lovely person as well. I can highly recommend Digna Clark for anyone looking to buy or sell a property.

We were delighted with the efficiency and professionalism that came with working with Digna and Jock, everything went well with their careful attention to detail, whilst the whirlwind that they created to sell our house really made it an exciting event, not a transaction to be dreaded. Many thanks again."Iain Cheesman and Sarah Tout

"When we first decided to put our home on the market we arranged for four real esate companies to come through and do an appraisal. Out of the four, Digna Clark stood out the most - she is very organised and professional in her approach and her advice about the best way to market our property was excellent.

We thoroughly recommend her to all and will definitely use her again in the future."Mark and Jeanie Suckling
