"We have been living in the UK for the last five years. Our property has been rented out but following news stories about the Auckland market, we decided on a holiday to NZ to investigate the possibility of selling our property. We contacted the office email addresses of three real estate agents based in St Heliers. We were referred to Julie by Barfoot & Thompson. Within 24 hours Julie had responded and asked for more information. Through our correspondence with the three agencies, it was obvious that Julie stood out due to her research and homework, her knowledge of the area, her understanding of legal implication, her advice on improvements required, staging and marketing and the networking opportunities within Barfoot & Thompson. Once we signed up with Julie, she was relentless in her desire to make our property as marketable as possible. She was in constant contact and available for discussion day and night (whether we were in NZ or when we had returned to the UK). She kept the property in good order which we appreciated.
We understand that the price we achieved was far beyond expectation. Even if we had achieved our target price, we would be recommending Julie to anyone and everyone. She has made this a real partnership and we believe she was totally committed, genuine and honest - that's why we chose her in the first place.
Finally, we found out that Julie had other properties on her books.....something that surprised us....we got the impression from her that she was working on our property 24/7...only for us.
You've got an exceptional person on your team. We can't recommend her highly enough."
"I have known Julie Kennedy for a number of years and have the utmost regard for her integrity, work ethic and professionalism, which she displayed in her previous profession as a barrister.
Last year my wife and I decided to put one of our New Zealand properties on the market and it was important, particularly as an absentee owner that we only involved an agent in whom we had confidence in looking after our interests. Julie's enthusiasm and commitment were second to none and I would have no hesitation in recommending her as a very capable real estate salesperson.
My opinion is based, not just as a vendor of one property, but on my experience of dealing with real estate agents for the past forty years in both the residential and commercial areas."
"Julie Kennedy acted for my wife and me in the sale of our Parnell home at the end of 2011. We cannot speak too highly of her expertise, enthusiasm and communication skills (both with us and with prospective purchasers). She devised a very effective marketing campaign and then managed the sales to our satisfaction. The outcome was very successful and we have no doubt this was in large measure due to the quality of the service we received from Julie."Gary Judd QCParnell, Auckland
"Recently we had the pleasure of selling our property through Julie Kennedy who represented Barfoot & Thompson, St Heliers branch.
From the outset (in which we talked with a number of salespeople) and throughout the complete process we found Julie's energy, enthusiasm coupled with local knowledge of the market and general advice excellent.
Julie was always contactable, fair, direct and factually on the ball which both Audrey and myself found very reassuring in what can be a very stressful time.
In summary, I would have no hesitation recommending Julie Kennedy to any customer looking to engage an estate agent to act on their behalf."
"I am one of the executors of the Estate of Barbara Mary Nolan. The executors engaged the services of Julie Kennedy of Barfoot & Thompson, St Heliers branch, to sell the deceased's home which comprised a ground floor apartment on Tamaki Drive. Julie provided a very good service and we were successful in selling the property at auction at a price higher than our expectation. Julie was friendly and approachable and worked very hard to make sure that the property was advertised and presented in the best possible way. Julie kept us fully informed throughout the marketing campaign and dealt expertly with queries raised by various prospective purchasers. She made sure that they all maintained their interest in the property and as a result we enjoyed some spirited bidding at the auction. I recommend Julie's services to any prospective vendor."Peter Nolan,Barrister & SolicitorAuckland
