"Deciding who to sell our house with was a big decision. From the start of the process, Di Martens made it an easy one and we were impressed with her professionalism, knowledge and work ethic. From day 1, she demonstrated a complete understanding of the local housing market which included current and recent houses for sale down to each house's individual characteristics. All her information was relevant, current and accurate giving us a good understanding of the housing market.
Di supported us in getting the house ready for sale and this support continued through the successful sale and until well after we had moved. Throughout the sale process, she kept us well informed on both progress and the next steps. She took control of the whole sales process ensuring it was smooth and seamless. Being time poor this was really important to us and one of the key reasons we chose Di as she sold the house as if it were her own.
To sell your property with someone who will guide and support you through each step to a successful conclusion, then I would recommend Di Martens."
"I have been very happy with Di as my Estate Agent due to her professional and friendly manner. Di has been very prompt and patient in responding to my various questions and queries. She was also very helpful in arranging different tradespeople and staging, in order to get my unit ready for sale. I can recommend her if you are thinking of selling."Sue Porritt
"Prior to selling our house we went to open homes in our area and observed the agents to see how they worked. We took into account their professionalism, attitude, interest in us as potential buyers and potential vendors. This was very important consideration as once selected they would be dealing with our most valuable asset. Without a doubt Di Martens came to the top of our list. Her knowledge of the local area combined with her total professionalism to go the extra mile gave us the confidence that we could trust her to sell our home.... And she did. Di Martens comes highly recommended to anyone considering buying or selling their home."Amanda and Jeremy van de Klundert
"Real Estate Agents don't have a great reputation and mostly its deserved. We've dealt with so many over the years and seen everything from dreadful to a lot of very average performances. However, we were lucky (or wise) enough to use Dianne Martens to sell our home earlier this year. No regrets whatsoever. What a professional. She's on the ball, organised, in touch, gets to know her buyers really well and therefore knows exactly whose genuinely in the market and who's not and at what level. (That's quite a skill). Her advice on preparing the home and the professionals she put us in touch with to dress the house were exceptional. I never saw better photos anywhere (she had to come 3 times with the photographer to get the right shots to combine high tide with full sun and get some night-time shots). She was always early for the open homes to get the house open and all ready before people arrived. She kept in contact throughout the month of the campaign, and her administration was impeccable. Prior to the auction we had "the meeting" to set the reserve and we were surprised to hear Di recommend it be higher than what we thought. Well the house did sell at auction ($500,000 more than we hoped for), she rightly assumed I would have packed all my glasses, so she brought glasses and chilled champagne for us to share with the new owners after the auction, and had the "sold" sticker ready to sick on the sign outside for new and old owners to have a photo opportunity. We have never before seen such a professional performance from a real estate agent. We unreservedly recommend her."Christina and Malcolm Box
"Dianne was so great to deal with. She is friendly, honest, relialistic and nothing was a problem for her. We had a great experience due to Dianne's hard work. I found the whole auction process a bit stressful, but Dianne was reassuring and calm which made things so much easier. We were extremely pleased with the sale figure achieved. Dianne is a credit to the company and we will recommend her to anyone we come across wanting to sell in the area."Sandy and Andrew Waugh - Ellerslie
"Dianne's positive and reassuring support made our process straightforward and comfortable. Her personal touch made us feel special and we felt confident allowing her to take us through to a successful outcome."Gill and Tuan Stringer - One Tree Hill
"We recently worked with Dianne to sell our home in Ellerslie. We would strongly recommend her without hesitation as she achieved a great price for us. Her 'no nonsense, straight up' style was very refreshing after meeting a number of other agents who had come with their 'over the top' sales spiel. Di told it how it was and went out of her way to help us stage the house so it was presented at its very best. Backed by the strength of Barfoot & Thompson Dianne is focused and willing to sell the house for the best money as much as you do."Steve Pickering and Fiona Allen - Ellerslie
"We decided to use Barfoot & Thompson after requesting proposals from two other realestate companies. Barfoots' was by far the most professional and trustworthy of the three we approached. House value and expected sale price was pleasingly accurate and realistic in the current market. Di Martens showed passion and a keeness to get stuck in and sell our ex-rental. Great advice on marketing, staging and the open home process put us at ease and proved to be just what was needed to sell above our expectation.
Di was fun to work with and even encouraged our daughter to "help" at some of the open homes, as she too has a keen interest in Realestate as a possible career path! Thanks for all of your efforts Di and we will be in touch when we're ready to sell the next property!"
