We contacted Maree to sell our house, she gave us a number of options and suggestions but was prepared to listen to what we wanted to do. She was most helpful in making sure that we were comfortable and happy with the appraisal and marketing and made the whole process of selling our home stress free and easy. She was proactive in sourcing prospective buyers from her database. A good outcome was achieved for ourselves and the purchaser and we were all very happy with the end result and Maree’s professionalism. We would happily recommend her to all our friends.Jack and Marlene Clark
Maree is dedicated, enthusiastic and possesses great people skills. She is a true professional with extensive experience in the industry. One of Maree’s greatest attributes in my mind is her listening skills. She really engaged with our entire family, taking on board all our feedback throughout the sale process. All these talents combined to achieve an outstanding result with my property sale.Judith Grayson
I have known Maree for many years and find her very experienced. She gives sound advice re value and expectations of the property. Her people skills are very good and she interacts well with potential buyers. Her feedback to me was excellent.Jan Rickman
Maree marketed and sold our house in Remuera. Maree offered a very professional and thorough appraisal of the property followed by an agreed marketing strategy. She has a very good network in the profession and after a series of open homes our house sold. We were impressed with the effort Maree put into our property, she was always available, courteous and helpful, and worked hard on our behalf. Her valuation was accurate and her advice on marketing the property was invaluable. We would have no hesitation in recommending Maree as an experienced and capable agent.Peter and Jane Tayler
We recently listed our home of 29 years with Maree Church from Barfoot & Thompson, Stonefields. From the outset Maree made things extremely comfortable for us as her complete professionalism and vast experience was invaluable.
Maree was very thorough with all her explanations of the procedures we would be going through leading up to the auction and her calm manner eased any stress we may have had. Her feedback from our Open Homes was really appreciated and helpful.
We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending mare and cannot thank her enough for all her hard work and the successful outcome she achieved for us.
We recently sold a property in Meadowbank and we were pleased with Maree's professionalism in selling the property successfully. Maree reported to us punctually at the beginning of each week, as promised, and we found her very approachable and communicative at all times. We would use Maree again to sell a property and have no hesitation in recommending her.Prue and Wawick Peacock
Recently I had the daunting task of selling my property. I contacted Maree Church from Barfoot & Thompson Meadowbank, who came around to give me an appraisal. Her knowledge and expertise of the current market was invaluable. After deciding the method of sale, Maree was in constant communication updating me on progress. I also purchased my new property through Maree.
Maree was also involved in the sale and purchase of two previous properties. I have no hesitation in recommending Maree. Her professionalism and friendly approach is exceptional.
We recently moved from England back to Auckland with our two children in April 2012. Given the buoyancy of the market Maree’s pragmatic and honest view was refreshing and appreciated.
Maree went out of her way to look at the houses for us and guide us even if she (or Barfoot’s) were not the listing agents for the property. She offered us an objective, straight up viewpoint on each house we toured, thereby helping us with our decisions. She was always prompt in returning phone calls, searching properties for us and arranging tours, at a time that suited (not always during open home times).
After a few months of searching we purchased a great property that suited our budget and amongst our other criteria. Although Maree was not the listing agent for the property, she guided and assisted us with the whole process as we bought the house in PreAuction offer.
We met Maree on a business level but she is like family now and we have developed a friendship that will continue for many years.
Having dealt with many agents in Australia, NZ & UK, Maree is by far the most personable and professional real estate agent we have come across. We highly recommend Maree to anyone looking for a highly effective and reliable real estate agent.
