Top Salesperson, Ellerslie Branch, 6 months ending September 2020
Top Salesperson, Ellerslie Branch, to end March 2019 & 2020
I am an award winning salesperson who has been selling real estate since 1995.
Based in the Ellerslie office on the main street of the Ellerslie Village, I have focused my career in this immediate area and its surrounding suburbs of One Tree Hill, Greenlane, Royal Oak, Onehunga and Mt Wellington, while also selling properties in the wider, greater Auckland area from Pukekohe to Henderson.
I have lived in the hub of the Greenlane/One Tree Hill area for 17 years and currently reside on the Ellerslie/Mt Wellington border. I understand the popularity of this city fringe location, its quality, lifestyle living offering privacy, while providing excellent access to main arterial routes, motorways and the airport.
I am passionate about real estate whether I am marketing a top-of-the- range townhouse, a renovated character home or a do-up offering potential. I understand that real estate is a people business that is reliant on good listening skills, first class service based on trust, and excellent rapport. I can offer the support of a much larger network of salespeople and marketers, who are truly at the hub of all things real estate.
Consistently in the top 10% nationally, I have frequently achieved National Premier or National Executive status, for "Outstanding Achievement" and am now proud to be associated with a company that has an active 33% share of the market in Auckland's city fringe suburbs, which is streets ahead of any other company.
Call me at the Barfoot & Thompson Ellerslie branch or drop into the office for a chat.
Melody, we'd like to thank you for all you did in achieving a very quick sale in a very stress-free manner. We especially appreciated you coming to our home to advise us of the items we needed to attend to in order to have our home presented to its maximum potential without actual refurbishment. Your marketing attracted a huge pool of buyers and you produced four offers.Michael and Tuula Faire
We would like to thank you for the exceptional service you provided. Due to its location and layout it was potentially a difficult property to represent effectively but your constant monitoring of, and ability to adjust, the advertising to match the correct buyer profiles meant there was a good stream of potential buyers, resulting in a pre-auction sale at a price that exceeded expectations, and your assistance then, in advising the best way to negotiate our next purchase, was well beyond the service we expected.Mark Stewart & Jolene Coleman
Thank you, Melody. On days when I felt it wasn't going to sell, your positive attitude and determination lifted me up and we got there thanks to you. It was awesome working with you.Jo Findlay
We were very impressed with the level of professionalism during our association. Melody has been extremely professional and was a pleasure to work with, reporting weekly with potential buyers and feedback; she achieved a result in excess of expectations.Beverley Groves and Tony Winter
Testimonials often gush so much that you'd think the subject was Mother Teresa. We don't gush. To keep this short we chose four words to describe Melody's approach. Colin's choices: professional, personable, energetic, knowledgeable. Val's choices: thorough, determined, enthusiastic, ethical. Okay, we'll gush a little. Although Melody had not sold our type of house before, she had a buyer signed up with a very good price within a week of it being up for sale. Communication was good; administration was thorough.Colin and Val Rippey
We found Melody to be very efficient and professional in every aspect of marketing our family home. We were kept fully informed of potential buyers and relevant sales which we found most helpful in determining where our property fitted the market.Beverly Allan on behalf of the Taylor family
We had seen many salespeople and Melody came across as approachable and had a great knowledge of the area. She always kept us informed of the people who viewed our home and the interest level which made the whole process easier for us. We were very impressed with the way she conducts business and have no hesitation recommending her to others.KJ & WA Slaney
I would like to thank you for all the work you have done over the last year. When I first contacted you, I didn’t have a clear pathway on how to go about selling Dad’s house to pay for his care. Dad, like many of his generation, was “asset rich, cash poor”. When his health took a turn for the worse we needed to act decisively. It was a great source of comfort that you had over 20 years’ experience in real estate and my sister had recommended you. I felt that I was in safe hands. All your guidance and tips paid off. We cleaned, de-cluttered, painted and in a short space of time, had a ‘rough diamond’ ready for marketing. Like many things in life, our journey to the final sale had a few twists and turns. I can’t thank you enough for the marketing, words of encouragement and advice you gave us along the way. You helped make our property memorable, reaching out to media and securing an article by “One Roof” that gave us great coverage. It was sheer genius! Even on auction day we had people visiting the property. You were always professional and courteous. I can’t thank you and Barfoot & Thompson enough for helping my family over this time.Alina Wimmer
Congratulations on selling our property and a big thank you for all your hard, hard work. You have never given up and just kept going. You have worked so long and hard. You more than deserve the sale. So a big thank you once again and I wish you every success in the future.Deryn Hatton
