#7 Sales Partnership, North Shore Region, to end March 2020
Over the years, Mathew has watched his wife Debby Candy-Gill successfully market and sell homes on the North Shore. He has seen her passion for people and property, and as a result developed his own. It was inevitable that he would step out from behind the scenes, obtain his real estate licence and become Debby's Sales Associate.
Working alongside Debby, they can now offer an even greater service to their clients. As a team they believe that trust is essential, and communication vital. Mathew understands the importance of taking time to listen to and ascertain their client's needs, and then works tirelessly to achieve results for them.
Mathew has gained great insight into the stress involved when relocating. He understands that time management is hugely important and planning ahead is crucial. Mathew has developed a keen eye for presentation and knows how to maximize the appeal of your home and garden.
When Mathew is not working, he can be found enjoying the coastal lifestyle or at the gym. Mathew is also a keen golfer and is a member of the Pupuke Golf Club where Debby and Mathew are active sponsors. He has a genuine passion for his community and believes in buying local to support our local businesses. Together with Debby, they give back through involvement and sponsorship of local events.
Mathew's motto in life is 'Just do it NOW!' so if you've been thinking of selling or are looking to buy a new home, take action and call him today.
We first met Debby and Mathew when we attended their open home. Mathew greeted us at the door and ensured we gave our correct contact details for necessary follow-up, while Debby was inside to show us all the features and benefits of the home.
We liked the fact that they were organised and able to answer our questions. We felt we could trust them and that gave us confidence to move forward with our commitment to purchase our new home. Debby ensured we had all the information we needed to make our decision-making easy.
On auction day, Debby and Mathew were both there to help us secure ownership of our new home. They also helped us to negotiate with the owner of the property. As first-time buyers it was great to feel they were there to guide us. And for the final inspection, Debby and Mathew helped us to review the item and facilities one-by-one and told us how to use them correctly.
Thanks to Debby and Mathew, Rita and me manage to have our first property.Rita & Edward
Thanks for the amazing service that both of you provided us when purchasing a home, and in helping us with selling the home, years later. We have found the advice was always spot-on and given in a professional manner based on real experience.
The attention to detail, weekly status reports, market research, ability to understand our needs, delivering in a timely manner and above all the trust established, has been amazing. We are thankful for the good service and will recommend both Debby and Mathew as the best real estate salespeople we have had the good fortune in dealing with over the years.Sanjay & Ruhee - Mairangi Bay
Recently Mat and Debby Candy-Gill sold our home in Murrays Bay and communication from start to finish was top notch. They understood and believed in the merits and value of our home and worked hard to maximise the sale price. Their prompt calls and hard work was appreciated, as were the thorough marketing reports each week. All in all, we were impressed with the effort Mat and Debby went to in working to achieve the best sale price at the time.Brendon & Treena, Murrays Bay
"Debby Candy-Gill and Mat Gill came into my home on that first meeting, and I immediately felt like I was not only in top professional, competent hands but I also felt I was with trusted friends! These two real estate agents work together to form a formidable duo and they worked tirelessly to help me to sell my house, and to get the best price possible. When I said I would like a certain price, they upped that price and got it for me - incredible! I cannot thank this couple enough for keeping me informed every step of the way and giving me help, advice and extra support when I needed it. Selling a family home is an emotional journey and quite a minefield for some of us, so having Debby and Mat behind me all the way meant I could rest easy at nights. I absolutely recommend these two people to anyone wanting to sell their home in the future!
Thank you, Debby and Mat, from the bottom of my heart."Diana, Torbay

Thank you, Debby and Mat. You have been unbelievably helpful to Karen and I and we appreciate it very much. Your professionalism, honesty and support throughout the whole process of selling our property has been outstanding. At times it has been a daunting experience. Your competency and calmness lessened the stress. For that we say thank you.Carole and Karen, Mairangi Bay
Both you and Mat have delivered yet again! I am very satisfied with the strong auction result that was above all our expectations. I cannot recommend your services highly enough for the professionalism and great market insight you have demonstrated throughout the marketing process.
Also, a special thank you for all the help both of you have given to enable me to get the property to market, especially given that I live in Sydney, I could not have done it without you!
Thanks again and very best wishes.Paul
We really appreciated Debby and Mat’s expert advice, professionalism and support in marketing and selling our property- especially as this was our first time selling in NZ. We are delighted with the outcome and have no hesitation in recommending them.Janet & David
"Debby and Mat have been absolutely the most amazing agents we've been involved with through the process of selling our home. They were thorough, diligent and extremely easy to work with. They gave us confidence in getting a result and worked tirelessly to achieve this. We are very grateful and would recommend them to anyone contemplating selling or buying a home."Nicki and Steve, Rothesay Bay
"Debby was excellent from the moment we first set up our inaugural meeting. She kept in touch without being pushy right up until we were ready to go to market. Professional and hard-working, she got more people through our three weeks of open homes than others had combined, in the previous six months! Despite the poor market conditions, she brought buyers to the auction and got us an excellent result on the day, even clinching a final few thousand extra as the hammer dropped.
Her team, including recommended cleaners, stagers and decorators were fairly priced and superb in delivery. You'd be hard-pressed to find a more friendly, professional, tenacious and diligent agent who succeeds where others had failed ...
If I ever want to move again, I'd invite her to sell my new property in the Bay"
'We were very impressed with the level of personal service from Debby and Mat. They were willing to work with our circumstances and understood our needs, gave us useful advice, worked hard, and achieved a very quick result" -Heather & Richard, Murrays Bay
"Debby & Mathew. Your commitment, attention to detail, enthusiasm, skilled advice and experience guided us to a perfect result. We thoroughly recommend using your services."Mary & David
"Debby helped us to purchase a new property. She struck a great balance of being patient to understand our needs whilst also persisting on behalf of her vendors. Taking the time to understand what was important to us enabled her to work through different options and reach a good outcome for both parties. She regularly kept us informed throughout the process which helped us to make a decision. She was both personable and professional"Shelley & Brett
"Debby and Mat could not have done more to achieve the sale of our home, particularly in a slower market. Right from our first meeting we knew that they would be thorough in working on our behalf, and leave no stone unturned. They treated both us and our home with respect, and nothing was a problem when we needed help in preparing for client viewings or requested privacy at times. Communication was excellent and we felt extremely well informed about the market and the process required to achieve a sale. There were times when things didn't quite go to plan, but Debby and Mat's drive, positive attitude, marketing knowledge and constant reassurance that all would be okay produced a great result in the end"Pam and Paul - Rothesay Bay
"Debby Candy-Gill and Mathew Gill sold my home in three weeks. They are an awesome team. Nothing was too much trouble. Debby was thorough in everything and got the very best result for me. Mat was there helping me with anything and everything to get the house ready for market. Their service was exemplary and I will always employ them again"Faye, Browns Bay
It was a pleasure working with Debby and Mat over the last seven weeks or so resulting in the successful sale of our property in Sunnynook. Communication was prompt, frequent, honest and comprehensive, with great attention to all aspects of the marketing and sale. Advice on what was needed to prepare the house for sale was realistic and proved to be effective. As inexperienced sellers the guidance provided at each stage was much appreciated. We felt fully informed through the entire process. The marketing programme brought a range of prospective buyers to the auction and Debby worked hard with the Barfoot & Thompson team on the day to get a price both seller and buyer were happy with. We would definitely employ their skills again, they make a great team.Paul and Sue (Devonport)
Debby was outstanding! A dedicated professional, a great communicator and hard-working. We followed her advice step by step and were thrilled with the sale on auction day. Such a pleasure to work with both of you. Thank you so much Debby and Mat.Jill and Phillip, Melbourne
Debby Candy-Gill and Mathew Gill from Mairangi Bay office were a dream to work with. Efficient, pleasant and absolutely nothing was too much trouble for them. A difficult transaction, but without their help, we would not have sold. Can't recommend them enough.Lesley & Julian
