With many years of past clients who still return time and again to list their home with him and refer family and friends as well, Ian knows the value of providing an excellent service to all those he meets.
Honest, easy to get on with, not pushy
We chose Ian and Lisa to be our salespeople after a family member was very happy with how Ian and Lisa helped them sell their property. We were also very pleased with our interactions with the Molloy team. Both Ian and Lisa are very approachable, down-to-earth and always available to help you navigate through the process of selling.Diane Aldridge - Vendor, 12 Mar 2022
We considered which agency to use and decided on Barfoot & Thompson as being the most established and experienced. The Molloy team were recommended by a friend as being the best of the best, so we got in touch, they came to our home, a value was established and we got under way. Their marketing and presentation was extremely professional, absolutely first class. The cost was reasonable and they did a wonderful job.
We consider them now as friends.
We were asked by our friends in England to help market their property in Birkenhead and so we decided to go with Lisa Molloy as we had known her personally for years.
Having spent years in real estate myself I am very critical of how properties are marketed.
We were so impressed with how professional she was, She put forward the most amazing video on Trade me which with all the other information gave prospective buyers access to any details they needed.
After only one weekend of open homes we received an unconditional offer and consequently the auction was bought forward and resulted in another buyer bidding. The amount the property sold for was incredible and resulted in very happy vendors the other side of the world.
Thank you Lisa and Ian - it was a joy to deal with you.
I would like to thank Ian and Lisa whom sold my property recently. Their dedication, commitment and enthusiasm along with keeping me informed with their daily phone calls was very reassuring. They are both honest and hardworking agents and I would not have any hesitation in recommending Ian and Lisa for both selling and buying a property.S BurnettVerbena Rd Birkdale
Many years ago I explored the option of selling my family home. Ian Molloy was the agent I contacted and I was immediately put at ease. Ian has an exceptional ability to build rapport and trust. After much thought I decided not to put my house on the market and Ian was not at all phased at my decision to not move forward with the selling process.
Fast-forward 18 years, I began the process again to sell my family home of 33 years. Ian Molloy was the first person that came to mind. He is a man of integrity and kindness. I was also fortunate to meet Lisa Molloy - together they make a powerful team. Lisa is bubbly and approachable with a keen eye for detail. She is incredibly skilled in the art of communication and diligently kept me informed.
Ian and Lisa's thoughtfulness and sensitivity was greatly appreciated. Their care, dedication and commitment to me is more than I could ever ask for. They have a wealth of expertise, knowledge and experience and have treated me with the utmost respect and compassion, ensuring that the whole process flowed effortlessly and was efficient and hassle-free.
The outcome of the sale of my home far exceeded my expectations and reflects the determination, commitment and focus Ian and Lisa gave. My family and I will be forever grateful to them.
Thank you Ian and Lisa
Lisa and Ian Molloy exhibited sheer professionalism in their handling of our recent house sale. They guided us through all the steps and made a daunting process manageable. Within a short time their thoughtfulness and kindness has made them our 'new best friends'.George and Rosemary Stevenson
Lisa was so supportive and honest from day one of our house hunt. She helped us put together a realistic plan of how to get into our first home. Lisa made this daunting process seem not so scary, my husband and I had heaps of fun with her seeing plenty of homes around the Shore and Rodney.
I know if it wasn't for Lisa we would not have won the property that we have today! Thank you so much for all your time you put into us. We will be sure to come back to you in the future.
Lisa was a great help to us when we were buying our first home. She was very realistic with our expectations, providing much needed insight into the property market and ensuring we did not waste our time on properties that were outside of our price range. She took us through endless open homes and provided continued support once we found a place, with useful suggestions of lawyers and building inspectors, ensuring the whole transition went smoothly.Alyssa Wells and Doug Sainsbury
Ian Molloy has something rarely seen these days - integrity. We truly appreciated Ian and Lisa's thorough and professional sales process and felt we had the strongest sales team we could have had. The communication was exceptional, the marketing was outstanding with stunning photography of our property. They also gave great advice, which we followed to our benefit. We feel they went the extra mile
and genuinely cared about helping us realise the best possible price for our house.
Ian & Lisa Molloy are experts in property on Aucklands North Shore. My wife and I originally purchased from Team Molloy 6 years ago, Since then we have received regular market updates on how our area and how property is tracking, visited numerous open homes/private viewings and have had open communication all hours of the day and night regarding the sale and purchase of property. We recently listed & sold our first home with Ian & Lisa because they understand us and our needs and we trust their advise. Sometimes I think Real Estate agents can be stereotyped in a negative light - Ian & Lisa are cut from a different cloth and have a genuine interest in their clients.
Thank you Team Molloy on behalf of the Heard family, you're legends and we appreciate all you have done for us!!
A friend of mine suggested that I give Ian a call re selling my house in Glenfield, he said that Ian had fantastic knowledge of the Glenfield area, was honest and reliable. (I must admit, that I didn't have a high option of real estate agents up until I got Ian & Lisa to give me an appraisal) To my surprise it was a very easy decision to list the house with Ian and Lisa, they made me feel very much at ease, and were by far the best agents. It can be a very stressful time selling your house, especially close to Christmas. Lisa and Ian took all the stress away and made the whole process very easy for me and the house sold within a week. I could not recommend Lisa & Ian highly enough, they are professional, trustworthy and honest, they will understand your needs, give you all the information that is best for you, and will make it fun at the same time - I really don't know how they do it. If you are lucky enough to get Lisa & Ian in to sell your house, you won't be disappointed . Thanks very much Lisa & Ian, it was a real pleasure.Joanne Hunt
Just over a month ago my husband and I contacted a number of agents with regard to the selling of a rental property on the North shore. Ian and Lisa were the last agents we met and it was a quick decision to go with them and Barfoot and Thompson. The sales process was clearly outlined to us, a fair and thorough appraisal of the property provided and sales information from similar and/or nearby properties presented. Within a week the house was on the market, with the first open home shortly after. From start to finish Ian and Lisa handled the process impeccably - from dealing with the tenants of the property (and the neighbours) professionally and with empathy, to providing us with timely and clear feedback and updates. After a 3 week campaign, the house sold under the hammer exactly where Ian and Lisa appraised it to be. Their unique partnership ensured that both residential and investment buyers were attracted to the property and most importantly were ready to bid on auction day. As busy parents of young children we very much appreciate the time and stress we were saved by selling with Ian and Lisa and wouldn't hesitate to work with them again. Thank you both.Satisfied Vendor - Birkdale
Thank you Ian and Lisa for 'taking me on' and working to sell my property. As an absentee vendor, I was grateful for the continual communication throughout the marketing campaign and the work that went into obtaining the result on auction day. Deciding to sell was a big decision 'made easy ' with the knowledge and professional skills that I experienced from listing to selling with Ian and Lisa Molloy. THANK YOU.Rebecca Bogue
We recently engaged the services of Ian and Lisa Molloy to sell a property. Ian and Lisa's whole approach, their advice, follow through and marketing, and their liaising with us, was excellent.
We were kept fully informed throughout the entire process, including on the day of the auction and we felt as if we were all working as a team. The result was a very successful sale, with no hassles or problems. We would chose to work with Ian and Lisa for any future real estate buying/selling and would definitely recommend them to others.
Our thanks to them both for a really good experience.
"Seven years ago we purchased a house through Lisa Molloy. At the time we found her fantastic. She listened to our needs and presented us only houses that would meet our requirements. She was efficient and represented us well during the purchase process. So when it came time to sell our house we immediately got in touch with Lisa. She set in place a great Marketing program and gave us good advice on how to maximise our value. Lisa and Ian have a great knowledge and the Albany area, and worked together well as a team to help us through the sale process. This included representing us in dealings with the tenants in the house, as well as during negotiations with prospective buyers. We would recommend both Lisa and Ian to those wanting to buy or sell a home."Micah and Meenal Gamman, Unsworth Heights
"Could not fault the service from commencement to finish. Thank you Ian and Lisa for a job well done."Rosemary Bridge ,Glenfield
"I came across working with Ian as Lisa Molloy contacted me after I went through a Barfoot & Thompson open home, They both came to my house to do an appraisal, I found them to be the best agents I have dealt with, they each had their strengths and worked very well together. Ian was the listing agent who conducted all the open homes, while Lisa worked very close with me in helping me find a new house! Overall my experiences with Ian, Lisa and the whole Barfoot & Thompson team exceeded my expectations."Daniel Currie, Houston Pl Glenfield
"I have known Ian for several years. In my opinion he has a very good feel for the area, he is very honest and trustworthy, and I cannot fault the service that he provided."John McIntosh Stanley Rd Glenfield.
"We have know Ian and had dealings with him for over 20 years, buying and selling properties. We have found him very professional and hard working, and he has achieved the results that we were
"We contacted Lisa looking for help buying our first home, after a glowing referral from a family member. From the first contact Lisa took the time to ask what we wanted, talk about where we wanted it and get a feel for 'us' as a family. Lisa has an amazing talent for finding 'the one' and once found - she was our number one advocate, advice giver and cheerleader through the settling process! We have been in our home for over 8 months now and we STILL talk about how right Lisa got it when she found us our home. We tell anyone who is looking for a home about her skills and level of service, and will do so for quite some time!"Chris and Emma Hannent, Birkdale
"My husband and I started out working with a number of different estate agents, none of whom could seem to grasp our very specific requirements, until we met Lisa. We very quickly decided to work solely with Lisa based on her excellent communication and ability to interpret our needs. Our needs and budget requirements were very specific and I imagine finding us the property we did eventually settle on (which we are extremely happy with) was a somewhat frustrating process, but we certainly never felt that from Lisa who was always happy to go above and beyond to assist us. In addition Lisa was very supportive throughout what was a difficult settlement (due to the vendor) which was greatly appreciated. Thank you for all of your hard work and support in finding our wonderful new home!"Kerry and Brendan James, Manuka Rd Glenfield
"I purchased my first house from Ian and Lisa in 2004. Since then, I have purchased 3 more through them and sold 2 as well. Ian and Lisa have been honest and professional in all my dealings with them. Ian has sold both houses very quickly and without fuss - while at the same time Lisa was busy searching for our new abode. Both of them make buying and selling a house a stress free and easy process.
I would highly recommend using Lisa to help you find your next house - her inside knowledge was invaluabe in purchasing each property. When it comes to upgrading to the next house, I will definitely be calling her again."
"Lisa and Ian helping us sell:
We felt in the safest of hands with Lisa and Ian - at every step of the process we felt they explained clearly what the options were and what would give us the best outcome. Their advice on how to present our house proved its weight in gold when we literally received our first offer three hours after our first open home! We've already recommended their service to several friends all of whom got the same sales result - complete happiness."
"Lisa helping us buy:
Lisa helped us find and purchase our first little home in Glenfield 7 years ago, and we were so happy with her service, we never even considered asking anyone else to help us when it then came time to move on and find our perfect long term family home. Her amazing attitude and ability to network with other agents to negotiate a purchase is what puts her miles ahead. She really listened to what we were after, and then wasted no time at all starting to identify opportunities with hot properties and work her contacts. When it came to our purchase, she went the extra mile to represent all parties' best interests, and scrupulously ensured the contract ual process was clear. Our new home is our dream home and Lisa has gone on to help several of our friends and family buy theirs too. We can't recommend her highly enough."
"When we purchased our house in November 2011 we found Lisa to be friendly, knowledgeable and professional. She showed us good quality houses that matched our search criteria. She provided local insight to locations and never tried to hurry us in any of our decisions. We were recommended to contact Lisa by a work colleague who purchased her house using Lisa's service and I've since referred her to several friends who have also found just the right home they were looking for. I will continue to recommend Lisa and will ask her to help us again when we look for our second house!"Nova Kellicut & Anton Wicken, Seaview Rd Glenfield
"Lisa was wonderful to deal with. Being a busy woman, I did not have much time to arrange appointments to view properties. Lisa took all of the hassle out of the process, and would email us updates every day of new properties on the market. She also took the time to sort out any issues, and chase up outstanding requirements. Being our first home we did not have much knowledge of what was required, and were very grateful to have Lisa's invaluable experience to draw upon. We would highly recommend her services to our friends and family."Sonja Glover, Brian Cres Stanmore Bay
"We cannot speak highly enough of your staff at the Glenfield Branch and their level of expertise and professionalism especially Lisa Molloy.
She has been priceless and has worked tirelessly even though we were on the verge of giving up she somehow managed to find us a property that suited us and our future needs. All this whilst in France and trusting her over the phone and internet.
She has made the purchase of our first home so much easier in a sense she could relate to us and know exactly what we wanted and worked for "us" on our behalf. We cant thank her enough and we would like to also thank you for getting your staff involved in helping me and my family find and buy a home whilst we are on the otherside of the Globe which is no easy task."
"The service and personal attention we received from Lisa Molloy while searching for a new home and selling our current home was exceptional!!!
Lisa contacted us after we went through an open home, from that day forward we were in daily contact, she organised everything to get our house sold, as well as finding our new dream home
She understood our needs and really listened to what we wanted in a new house and never tried to push us into something that didn't work, which is something I really appreciated!
We managed to get the right price for both properties (selling and purchasing) this was all down to Lisa.
Lisa really restored my faith in real estate agents after having some not so pleasant experiences in the past, regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Lisa, we could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process"
