Top Salesperson, Wynyard Quarter, 6 months ending September 2020
A powerful sister duo with a tonne of combined real estate and business experience, Gabrielle Hoffmann and Nicola Hunt have become renowned for their exceptional service and results. They value their working partnership, and find their clients respond well to the trustworthy base they provide.
A monthly contribution of their income goes to various charities, two of their favourite being: "Auckland City Mission" and "Sustainable Coastlines".
At the heart of their service is a genuine commitment to client satisfaction. Both people of high personal integrity, they've achieved success by placing honesty, transparency and integrity at the forefront of their business.
Possessing the unique ability to understand the individual needs of a client, to actively listen, and then tailor an approach that meets their requirements, they've established client relationships that extend well beyond the sale.
Each partner in this relationship brings something special to the table:
Nicola spent the past 25 years partnering with her husband in the management of their companies, including CNS Treasury Software and Tuatara Foreign Exchange, and has experienced nearly all facets of business. With two kids at university and one to go, she relates well to clients making life changing decisions around their 'homes'. She thrives in a client centric environment, and gets a huge amount of satisfaction from helping people buy and sell their beloved homes.
This sister act makes for a high performing team, so whether you are a seller looking for the best possible price, or a buyer wanting to make your next move, there's one thing you can be sure of - Gabrielle and Nicola will not disappoint.
Gabrielle has over a decade of experience in the industry. Having previously specialised in apartment sales, she's been exposed to some of the more difficult and complex aspects of real estate, which require in-depth knowledge, expertise and skill, all of which have served her clients well. Accolades include being ranked in the top two sales agents for a previous Agency in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
We would like to thank you and Nicola for the professional and efficient way in which you handled the sale of our city apartment. It is the second time we have entrusted you both with the sale of an apartment and each time the sale has transitioned smoothly. Would definitely recommend your services to any prospective seller.
Thank you so much for your thoughtful card and lovely bottle of champagne, which we thoroughly enjoyed on the first night in our wonderful apartment.
Thank you also for being so professional throughout the buying process. We were very impressed with the level of contact and service received, and would not hesitate in recommending future buyers or sellers to speak to you if looking for a home in Auckland.
Thanks and regardsAntony and Corinne
Nicola and Gabrielle were commissioned to sell our unit in the Wynyard Quarter. To say that Nicola and Gabrielle tenaciously stuck to the task is an understatement. Their advice and guidance for the duration of the listing took a number of things into account, the economic climate, buyer behaviour and the activity of the Wynyard Quarter. This all made sense to a willing seller but greater than this, the ladies took care of our anxieties and carefully navigated us to a successful outcome.
Nicola and Gabrielle are professionals with both expertise and compassion. No wonder they are known as the “Dynamic Duo”.Jane & Tess
Gabrielle Hoffman and Nicola Hunt were the agents for our Wynyard Quarter apartment sale. We have been delighted with the professional and efficient service from them. The information and follow up was thorough and their collective experience resulted in a desired result for the sale. Throughout the whole process they were both conscientious and motivated. Ethically they were without question and I would not hesitate to recommend them to any future clients.Linda and Mike Farr
'Working with Gabrielle and Nicola was a good experience from start to finish. They replied to any queries we had promptly, and were very calm and measured in their approach throughout the process of our buying a larger apartment and subsequently selling our old apartment. We recommend them as highly professional real estate agents who provide an excellent service to their clients.'Cathy and Geoff Green
Dear Gabrielle and Nicola "I am writing to thank you both for your excellent and professional service in helping me sell my leasehold flat in the viaduct recently. I am also excited about my new purchase of a flat in Madden, Wynyard Central. Your honesty, integrity and local knowledge has given me the highest confidence in my desire to buy this off-plan flat in Madden. As you know it is harder to manage my NZ property related matters from the UK where I am resident and I appreciate your continuing availability to me at hours outside of your normal office hours. Thank you again and I look forward to maintaining our positive working relationship."
"Thanks so much for successfully selling our apartment. You were both great with the communications via detailed email updates and timely text messages, which really suited us. It was a very simple and pain free process. You also gave us great advice on the way through and in the end made us stick to our guns to get the price we were looking for."Simon Bennett
"My husband and I would like to commend you on being the most outstanding property broker we have ever met. Once we had conveyed to you the unique properties we were hoping to purchase you were able to locate them for us in record time. All communication was handled in the most gracious and professional way. Then recently when we decided to sell two properties, you further astounded us by finding buyers within two weeks, and at record prices. It's difficult to find words to fully express our gratitude and admiration for all you have done for us. One thing is for certain, you will always be our broker, and we will always be happy to recommend you."Anne Hosking
"Tom and I really valued having you represent our property for sale Gabrielle. It was reassuring to have your experience and support through the whole process right through to the successful outcome. The initial proposal you put forward showed professionalism and market knowledge that was clearly superior to the other prospective agents we interviewed. Your low key professional approach and attention to details as you shepherded us through the presentation and marketing process gave us confidence that we were on the right track. You were accessible and responsive to our phone calls and emails and provided regular feedback and reminders along the way. The auction itself was an impressive experience and the fact that Tom was able to watch it live from New York was the icing on the cake! Thanks again Gabrielle, for making the whole thing easy for us!"Tom Seagar
"Much appreciated Gabrielle and Nicola. I can't believe it is only 3 weeks ago I gave you the keys - so much has happened. I have been very happy with how you have worked with me (albeit a short relationship.) We will be recommending you both to others."Richard Cosgrove
"Thank you for the professional help one again. Having purchased 3 properties with your assistance I can honestly say how much I have appreciated your expertise and support. I am happy to be quoted as someone who is totally satisfied with your approach. This endorsement comes without any request from you and as such I am happy for it to be shared. With all good wishes"Tony Sissons
"We have just settled the sale of an apartment in Auckland, which Gabrielle Hoffman sold for us. Gabrielle was aware of our preference to sell but not at a sacrificial price, so she made contact with me to list the property and market it only to a select number of clients, ensuring that our tenant would not be disrupted too much.
Although I have never actually met Gabrielle as I am resident overseas, she impressed me with her professionalism and determination and pro-active communication where I felt informed of progress throughout.
It is fair to say that we are very happy with the outcome, and I would recommend Gabrielle to anyone who is looking for a quality agent to represent them."
"Gabrielle and Nicola acted as our real estate agents for the sale of our property in Auckland. Being involved in real estate for over 10 years ourselves as agents it was refreshing to deal with someone as honest and professional as we strive to be ourselves. Gabrielle and Nicola listed our property and promptly sold it unconditionally within days - a great result for us!! We highly recommend Gabrielle and Nicola to anyone looking for an Auckland real estate agent to provide them with excellent service and results."Ian & Carol.K
