What my clients say...........
Over the years I had met Lynette at different open homes, I always felt Lynette was very helpful and informative. Recently I decided to sell a property and Lynette came to mind, I contacted her and she remembered me and even mentioned a particular property I had looked at 3 or 4 years earlier.....I was impressed! Right from the first meeting everything was discussed and planned so there was no confusion to how the process worked. The feedback after the open homes was above and beyond, I couldn't have asked for more. The property sold without a hitch, I put this down to the professional way Lynette presents herself to the prospective purchasers. Thanks Lynette, might have another one to sell in 12 months!Kevin Atkinson
We are very happy to write this reference for Lynette. She has been our 'informal' property adviser for many years having sold a property for us previously. So when it came time to sell our family home in Glendowie, we knew who we wanted to lead the sales process. Lynette has always impressed us with her professional and straightforward manner. She gave us valuable feedback about the advertising programme and more importantly how to handle some unexpected situations/questions which arose during the sales process. We were very grateful for her experience and guidance. By auction day, we had very confidence that no prospective buyer was left uncontacted and we were pleased to sell on the day. We feel very confident that in recommending Lynette as your real estate agent that you will be impressed by her approach and results.Carol and David Abernethy
I have never had an agent who kept me in the picture every day, arrived promptly for open homes and gave me immediate feedback. I found Lynette to be a straight talker, enthusiastic and reliable. She was in contact with me every day during the sales period, and gave me immediate feed back after each open home. She is a very friendly, natural and warm type of person. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Just to say that I was more than happy. It is the first time I have ever sold a house where everything went so smoothly and achieved satisfaction.Elaine Olliver
Ann and I would like to thank you for the wonderful job you did in marketing our Yatttendon Road property. Although the "investment" in marketing and staging seemed significant at the time, it paid off hugely with the property achieving over $100,000 more than we'd realistically expected at auction. The buzz that the marketing produced meant that we had a pre-auction offer and that we had several bidders at the auction.
You and your team did an excellent job producing genuine buyers and bringing them through to the Auction where the Auctioneer was able to create excitement and urgency needed to produce the fantastic end result.Roger and Ann Gold
I found selling a property with Lynette a pleasure. Lynette was very diligent in a difficult sale and was excellent at communicating with me at all times. I think her easy manner with people is a real asset.Lorraine O'Malley
Lynette marketed our Ellerslie rental property in Feb 2015. Her game plan to sell the property complemented by her network of contacts for staging, photography and the like resulted in a "pain free" successful sale. Her passion and professionalism was obvious and she kept us appropriately informed throughout the process .Matt and Lynne Lind
I must say how delighted and grateful we are that you had done a wonderful job by handling the sale of our house in Kohi. Your expertise and friendly service with us and the amount of assistance you had rendered are definitely beyond our expectation.
May we wish you all the best in the coming year.
For those who are looking for a friendly, helpful, honest real estate agent, we have no reservations whatsoever to recommend you.
Once again a big Thank You, Lynette. Keep up the Good Work.Linda and Shirley
As you are aware Lynette was recently responsible in completing the sale of our remaining apartment at 6 Maheke Street. We had not previously met Lynette and my wife and myself were immediately impressed by her direct and "no nonsense" approach to marketing our property. Unit 205 is a modern minimalist designed apartment in a concrete building and finished to a very high standard. However, because of the ultra - modern design and fit-out, the market had some difficulty in accepting this product for the initial marketing period. It was at this stage that Lynette's experience and determination came to the fore. She convinced us to "stage" the apartment, change the marketing approach and continued with weekly open homes until the apartment was sold.
Were we as owners satisfied with the result - yes very! Would we recommend her to others, yes we have to a number of friends, and would we use her again yes, yes, yes.Robin & Winifred Shefield
Lynette handled the sale of my parents' property with empathy and treated the family with respect. She was professional at all times and I found her extremely approachable. We would not hesitate in using her again or recommending her to friends. She was honest in her feedback and we were delighted with the outcome of the auction. Annette Thompson
"We dealt with Lynette knowing that she is a true professional. She did an outstanding job with great results. He communication and reporting was excellent. Would recommend Lynette to anyone thinking of selling a property."Trish & Colville Wallace
"It was a difficult time deciding to sell the family home of some 50+ yrs, and I chose to go with Lynette as she was very understanding of the situation and made me feel very comfortable and explained the whole process in a way that was easy to understand.
During the time Lynette had the property and operated the open homes she regularly kept me informed either by text, email or phone call on how the progress was going. She would also email a weekly report updating on the effect of the advertising and open home comments.
I found Lynette to be extremely professional and the marketing campaign she set gave a very realistic view of the property.
I believe Lynette has a very real knowledge of the current market and helps to set prices at a realistic and achievable figure.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Lynette to any one either selling or buying as I am sure they will get the same honest good service that I received." Raewyn Morris
"My mother sold her apartment at today's auction. Importantly the whole process has been highly professional and the agents - Joanna Deighton and Lynette Boyd - have done a great job. Their advice to us on price, marketing options, regular feedback from open homes, communication and courtesy to my elderly mother have been much appreciated and well considered. The outcome and advice regarding price were as they expressed so that our expectations were in line with market. I have always been impressed by what you give back to Auckland as a company but I congratulate you on the service level you obviously build into the culture of your agents and staff."Chris Lambert
"Lynette was particularly helpful because I live on Waiheke and she was willing to co-ordinate workmen and access to the property when I couldn't. I was particularly impressed that she agreed to meet prospective buyers or their builders on one occasion at 7am in the morning and another at 7.30am and it
was the latter buyer that bought the property. I think the results at the auction due to the number of bidders speaks for itself in terms of the work that she did with prospective buyers."Claire Barker
"We have found Lynette a very friendly, honest,reliable and enthusiastic person. Lynette loves what she does you can see by her presentation and sense of commitment."Evelyn and Michael Jaffe
Great salesperson, good to work with.Atesh
Lynette was a fantastic agent to deal with. Her communication and approach was well executed as she genuinely understood the emotion of the process in selling the family home (that has remained with us for four generations). Lynette and her colleague Mark were very proactive and we appreciated the continued communication and updates for the duration of the house being on the market. It was a difficult process to deal with a number of family members, however Lynette's professional approach drove us to achieve the result we wanted. We will be happy to refer Lynette, and Barfoot & Thompson St Heliers to any of our friends and family who require an agent for buying or selling their homes.Estelle Tikitau
"Lynette was a great help with plenty of suggestions, helpful advice and honest opinions."Pamela Chignall
"Throughout this programme she kept us fully informed of all interested parties attending the two open homes held each weekend. It was clear she was very good at qualifying potential buyers and getting their idea of the property's value and its desirability to them. Lynette was able to, through her good negotiating skills, put together a sale which satisfied the buyers' position and meet our desire to have a clean unconditional sale.
I can not speak highly enough of our satisfaction with all aspects of Lynette's work. Although she has been working as a Real estate salesperson for a number of years she has been able to maintain what I believe is the most important aspect of sales - enthusiasm. She is able to develop a good rapport with potential buyers but is definitely focussed on obtaining the best possible deal for the vendor."Chris Parkinson
"Our especial and sincere thanks to Lynette for the way she organised the campaign - from the initial timetable, advertising, open homes, auction and post auction. Her thoughtfulness and consideration and her willingness to go the extra mile in ensuring we were kept in the picture and our worries were eased, are greatly appreciated."John Fraser
"We have known Lynette for over 11 years and she has become more than an agent to us, our kids know her by first name and we wouldn't think of going to anyone else! She has helped us sell houses as our family has grown and has given us the heads up on properties on the market that we have shared with friends and family.
Lynette has always been both professional and friendly and has even stepped in to help sweep floors in preparation for our open home! I would thoroughly recommend Lynette as one of the truly good real estate agents. She is hard working and deserves every commission she gets. Barfoot & Thompson are lucky to have such a valuable employee."Sam & Scott Fowler
I want to thank you so much for the excellent outcome you achieved on the sale of my property in Maskell Street recently.
From the outset you were extremely organised and provided all the necessary information regarding current sales and a realistic marketing programme. As this was the third house you have successfully sold on my behalf I knew that would be the case!
You were in contact immediately after each open home and keen to discuss how the programme leading up to the auction was going and had buyers interested from your previous dealings with them.
On the day of the auction you were able keep all 4 bidders working towards, what in the end was, a better than expected outcome.
I have no hesitation in recommending you, and your team, as an extremely focused professional and will certainly invite you to market and sell any other property in the future I choose to sell."Sharyn O'Brien
