"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Ketiesha and Frank on the sale of my property. They are very professional and have outstanding knowledge of the local market. But they are not only fabulous at their job, they go about it with a lovely warm, friendly and relaxed manner that makes a potentially stressful process very easy. They achieved an outstanding result for me and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone else looking to sell."Lesley-Anne
This is the third house we have sold with Keteisha and Frank, and we could not have asked for better service. They were very knowledgeable about the local market, gave a very accurate price indication, did a very impressive marketing campaign, and were a joy to work with. No hesitation in recommending to other sellers.Jane and John Warner
The service I received from Ketiesha, Frank and Frankie was exceptional in every way. The staff at the Barfoot & Thompson Mt Eden office were helpful, courteous and obliging. I want to thank Ketiesha Elliot, Frank and Frankie Excell and Barfoot & Thompson most sincerely and profusely for their expert advice and hard work in the recent sale of my home. This is the third time Ketiesha has helped me to buy or sell a home. I heap praises and gratitude upon her!Elizabeth Holowell
Frank Excell and Ketiesha Elliott have just sold our unit in Mt Eden. We could not have wished for better agents. They were everything we were looking for when we started searching. Frank and Ketiesha are a very professional and polished team. Their communication was excellent and they took all the stress away. It was a fantastic experience and we were very happy with the outcome. Thank you.Ivan and Janet Zanich
Ketiesha and Frank, recently managed the sale of our house in Epsom and delivered a great outcome for us, again. They have been our "Go to Team" as we have purchased and sold houses in Sandringham, Mt Eden and Epsom over the last nine years. They are honest, up-front and always keep you as the number one priority. The offer great ideas on how to present your home to make it look its best and attract those quality buyers.
To be able to rely on them delivers a stress-free process for us, all things considered, and we always feel we have achieved through them the best price possible. When we look to shift again, we'll be giving Ketiesha and Frank a ring.
Frank Excell and Ketiesha Elliott handled the sale of my home unit in Mt Eden. They were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish making the process an enjoyable experience. From the day I showed them the unit to the day of settlement only took several weeks. Frank and Ketiesha were very efficient, communicated well and achieved a good result.Robert van De Lisdonk, June 2018
We knew of Frank and Ketiesha from looking for a house for our daughter some years ago. We were impressed that Ketiesha had remembered features of our house from when we bought it through Barfoots and obviously liked it. This, added to Frank and Ketiesha's strong sales record in our area, made the difference in our choice of agents to sell on our behalf.
We were not disappointed, as their whole process was very well thought out, detailed, and transparent.
We felt that both Frank and Ketiesha were always going the extra mile in helping us to present and market our property, and we also found them very easy and pleasant to deal with.
We are very happy to warmly recommend Frank and Ketiesha, and the Barfoots team.
We engaged Ketiesha and Frank to market and sell our house, after some research and discussions with a number of real estate agents.
They are warm, friendly, professional, knowledgeable and reliable. They know the Mt Eden area really well and are up-to-date with what is happening in the housing market in general. They have a wide network of colleagues and maintain good relationships with potential house buyers.
It was a pleasure working with Ketiesha and Frank as they showed genuine care for us and for our home. They worked very hard, in a difficult market, and we were extremely pleased with their work, and the result.
If you are considering selling your home and live in the Mt Eden area, we would definitely recommend Ketiesha and Frank, they didn't get to be the number 1 sales team in their office by accident!
"From the first meeting, the service provided by Ketiesha and Frank was slick and seamless. They made everything so easy and helped achieve the right result."Deborah, November 2016
"We sold our house in February this year and Frank and Ketiesha made our selling experience one that I would recommend to any potential vendor.
I think what we noticed most was their honesty and openness about what was happening at the various stages of the marketing process and their ability to clearly communicate with us.
They work really well as a team offering their different strengths in real estate and having individual personalities that complement each other.
We will definitely use them again for any future property sales."
Ketiesha and Frank did an amazing job marketing and selling our much loved family home.
We first met them 17 years ago when we were house hunting and they were the natural choice when we decided to sell. They were helpful, hardworking and enthusiastic. They did their research well and they dished out good honest advice on what we needed to do to present our home at its best. They eased us through the stressful selling process and did so with a sense of fun. Their communication was spot on.
Ketiesha and Frank... thank you, thank you, thank you! The price we achieved at auction was incredible, despite a slowing market. We would not hesitate to use you and the Barfoots team again and we wholeheartedly endorse you to all.
"When the decision to sell our property was made, the choice of which agents to use was easy as Ketiesha and Frank were the agents when we purchased it some 17 years ago. This, and the fact that they are two of Barfoot & Thompson's top selling agents proved to be a very wise decision.
From our very first meeting we knew that our trust was well placed. We received savvy advice without all the spin, just as we believed we would. Their commitment to us and the sale of our property was so comforting as it was genuine; a rare commodity these days, sadly. Throughout the whole selling process their communication and campaign advice proved to be absolutely spot on. Ketiesha and Frank had an A,B,C and D plan should we need it, and of course we didn't. The property sold well beyond our expectations and set a new record in the area for heritage apartments.
I can honestly say they are the best people to have on your team and could not recommend them more highly. Whether buying or selling real estate in the future, Ketiesha and Frank will be my first contact as they are such an effective team with their clients' best interests always at heart. Thank you both for your energy and enthusiasm and making this such a stress-free experience."
