I am a driven, articulate businesswoman, and an accredited salesperson ARIENZ, with 15 years of real estate experience. Prior to my real estate career I practiced as a commercial and litigation lawyer.
My philosophy is clear. My task is to actively listen and understand a vendor’s wants, determine the standout selling strategy, communicate clearly in a timely fashion, and ensure the selling experience is tremendously successful.
Results matter. My solid successful sales history has resulted in over $400m of residential sales and a host of return clients. Tenacious and hardworking, I go the extra mile to ensure the best bankable outcome. I understand that my clients have busy lives and selling their home is a major transaction. I handle the whole process on their behalf with discretion, professionalism, and tough acumen.
A keen skier and sportswoman, when I’m not in Auckland, you’ll find me in the outdoors. Once the borders open, I am looking forward to visiting my children in Sydney and Chicago.
Call me at Barfoot & Thompson Remuera.
"Your approach is totally professional and we unreservedly recommend you to family and friends. We had your full support and expert advice throughout the campaign and your level of communication to keep us up-to-date and 'in the picture' with the process was exemplary. With our thanks."Nicki & John
Years of upgrading and renovating our home had us closer to selling "sometime in the future" until we were gently persuaded by Verena and Lisa to move forward the clock. Their hands-on assistance and spot-on advice gave us confidence to proceed and we are delighted we did. A sale under the hammer at auction and a great result all round. Always available, professional, and enthusiastic, Verena and Lisa are a formidable team who understand the market, deliver a dynamic and innovative marketing campaign, and are highly skilled at working with buyers to build an outstanding auction result. Our wholehearted recommendation.Adair & Allen Kehoe - Vendors
"Given the circumstances (Covid 19 lockdown), time on the market, and our turning away several offers over time ... the salespeople would have had every reason to become disillusioned with the opportunity. If that was the case, they (Verena and Lisa), never let us see it, and we were impressed with their relentless enthusiasm."Murdoch & Rebecca Dryden
We would like to thank you both for the ideal outcome we have achieved. You are friendly, competent, professional and acted with integrity throughout. You stand out from the crowd! The immediate impact of the advertising in the first weekend was a real bonus and to get an offer within nine days was honestly the perfect outcome for us!Scott & Robyn Pheloung
Verena Ryan and Lisa MacQueen recently sold our home of 48 years, and we are delighted to write a testimonial for them. At all times their extremely professional and efficient manner with regard to the marketing and final sale of the property was exceptional. With their advice and guidance the presentation of the property was top quality and greatly assisted in producing an excellent sale result. On a personal note, it has been a very emotional time to leave our family home of so many years, and both Verena and Lisa have shown empathy and understanding to us both which we have very much appreciated.Nigel and Margaret Harrison
We would like to thank both Lisa and Verena for the sale of our property. They knew exactly how to present our home and did it well above our expectations, it looked amazing. They were always available instantly whenever we needed them to answer any questions and concerns that we had. They also shared useful contacts and local knowledge with us. Thank you both.
Kind RegardsAneil and Ori
