We have used Sally as our real estate salesperson twice and she was fantastic both times. Selling a house is inherently stressful and emotionally draining. Sally was wonderful at helping us stay calm and in control. She gave us accurate information, was a good listener, and kept us fully informed during negotiations. Sally is an expert at building demand from buyers without being pushy. She is a knowledgeable professional who gets results, while being an absolute pleasure to work with.Kim & Steve
“Sally was given the job of selling our property in Dairy Flat. With us living the other end of New Zealand, it was great to be able to put it in the capable hands of someone we trusted. She worked in with the tenant, organised open homes and made sure the house was at its best. We were incredibly pleased with the outcome. We would recommend Sally Claxton for anyone wanting a trustworthy salesperson."Robin & Richard
From the time we asked Sally Claxton for an appraisal on our property then listed the property with her, she was very professional, positive and punctual. She listened to how we wanted the property to be marketed and kept us well informed during the process. We were pleased Sally sold the property and was rewarded for her great efforts. We would gladly recommend her.Tim & Jo
Sally Claxton sold our lifestyle property in one month. From the initial meeting and appraisal, we felt that Sally was the correct salesperson for us. Her local knowledge is second-to-none, having herself been closely tied to the area for the past 20 plus years. Transparency and communication was always at the forefront of our expectations, and again Sally exceeded both. As selling one’s family home after 26 years has its own emotional ties, we felt ready and we're proud to list after expert advice during the staging process. We could not be happier with the result we achieved and have no hesitation in recommending Sally Claxton as a premium operator in her field.David & Amanda Newman
"If you are putting your house on the market, we recommend Sally Claxton as your listing salesperson.
Our home went on the market just as Auckland went into Lockdown for the second time and open homes were not permitted. Instead Sally brought one or two groups of potential purchasers through most days. She kept us in the loop about new inquiries and supported us all the way. Sally was an integral part of one of the biggest times in our life and thanks to Sally's dedication we have been able to follow our dream to the beautiful Bay of Plenty."Liz & Karl Clemm
We have been very pleased and comfortable in our dealings with Sally Claxton. Sally is always very helpful, diligent, persistent and transparent. For all of our questions, she has provided her professional advice. We would have not bought the property without Sally going the extra mile to provide her unreserved support throughout the process. We are grateful to have found the right property, and it is Sally who has made it a reality.Martin & Yuan
You couldn't if you tried, find another real estate salesperson as experienced, thoughtful, approachable, honest and hard working as Sally, PERIOD.Olwyn Lloyd-Owens
Thanks so much for concluding the sale on our home. From the outset you were great to work with - especially the process of selecting photos and content for the advertising collateral… and keeping us on track! You took the time to understand our vision for the type of buyer we were expecting or hoping for and we felt you ‘got us’ or our vision so to speak. You were very professional throughout the journey, always punctual, very reliable and consistently feeding back to us the outcomes of each party’s viewing. You were very patient and yet persistent with following up and working the buyers. You’re a wonderful testimony that answers that question, some may ask, why having a salesperson negotiate on vendors’ behalf is so very necessary.
We would definitely recommend you to anyone and should any prospective vendor wish to seek confirmation first hand we’d be happy to do that as well. Well done and thanks again - you’re a true professional!
I am delighted to provide my results of working with Sally Claxton following the successful marketing of my home. This property has some unique values which Sally readily understood and focused on. Her administration abilities were immaculate and her regular contacts over the extended period for sale were excellent. There were some challenges along the way, but she never faltered with her positive attitude. Sally is a very effective real estate person. I am happy to give further information if needed.John Thompson
We wrote not too long ago as past clients to express our gratitude for the outstanding work that Sally Claxton did for us as. Fortunately, we were able to work with Sally again as the buyers. We looked at three properties describing to Sally our requirements. Given our requirements Sally was able to facilitate the purchase of this property which we are very happy with. Even though we knew Sally very well – she still acted impartially and demonstrated great integrity. We felt that the clients also got a fair price and they would have been very happy with their sale. Sally helped us with arranging the builders’ inspection; obtaining body corporate minutes, and independent valuation as the settlement timeframe was short."
Yours sincerelyLouise and Frank Afeaki
"We listed our property with Barfoot & Thompson as they are the local real estate agency. Sally was introduced to us at an evening’s presentation (a combined road meeting as six of us had recently subdivided land) and my husband was impressed at how open she was and how professionally she fielded the questions from six different landowners. Our property was sold within two weeks. Sally communicated with us very well, from viewings to marketing and advertising. We are continuing to use Sally to sell our bare blocks. Sally worked very hard to sell our bare block. She kept me well informed on enquiries received and potential purchasers. Sally updated the advertising material to give the block a 'fresh look' when it needed it. I wouldn't hesitate to use Sally again if we sell another property in this area."Megan Kemp
"We have had the privilege of being both purchasers and vendors of Sally Claxton over the last three years. Sally has just sold us into our new address in July and we are absolutely delighted with the property and the way in which Sally conducted her professionalism. Sally always worked extremely hard for us in negotiating an amicable sale and constantly kept us up-to-date with progress. We would without question, highly recommend Sally to any purchasers or vendors who need a competent and trustworthy salesperson who will dedicate their full commitment to a successful sale or purchase. Thank you Sally for finding us our beautiful home and we wish you all the success in the future that you justly deserve.
Kindest regardsJohn & Alena Lee
When we decided to sell our property after 40 years of ownership, we chose the local Barfoot & Thompson agency to market it for us. Sally Claxton was enthusiastic, respectful and delightful to deal with. As we live out of the region, Sally regularly kept the family informed by phone and email. Sally gave us sound advice and information throughout. She acted efficiently upon our requests.
Our first meeting with Sally was at auction time. We felt fully informed and confident that our property had been presented at its best. After the auction Sally followed up with the negotiations for the sale of the property until settlement. Sally is a most effective communicator. We found Sally to be trustworthy, knowledgeable and professional in all our dealings with her. Sally Claxton comes with our highest recommendation.Barbara and Graham Mobberley
"I would recommend Sally to other vendors looking at putting their property on the market. We received an honest appraisal and the property was marketed with enthusiasm by the whole team. Even after receiving and accepting our first conditional offer, she still strived to get us that back up offer. Thanks for restoring my faith in the real estate industry.Annette & Mark Mason
We decided to look for a lifestyle block and during our search we met Sally at a property she had on her list in Dairy Flat. We made a conditional offer on this property, subject to the sale of our East Coast Bays property, which we listed with Sally.
Sally jumped in boots and all into the marketing of our East Coast Bays, her enthusiasm and continual communication with us throughout the process was amazing. She even helped set up our home for the open homes and photography session and went as far as last-minute vacuuming and flower arranging. She never pressurized us throughout the process.
We must thank Sally very much for a wonderful outcome for all. She was very professional, and her advice was invaluable regarding tips on preparing our home for marketing the property as well as which method to use for selling the property. Her encouragement all the way through the process was amazing even when we felt it was too much for us. Her team at Coatesville Barfoot & Thompson, especially her manager, Paul Adams, were also very supportive.
My wife and I value the exceptional service we received from Sally and we would recommend her most highly to any prospective buyer or seller ... Sally worked very hard for us (as well as for the vendor of the property we purchased). Thank you Sally.
Sally’s strong commitment and exceptional communication skills made the process far less daunting than we had anticipated. Sally kept us fully informed of the market response to the property and helped us adapt our marketing strategy and thinking in order to produce a successful sale. We were very impressed with Sally’s follow up of prospective customers, which kept our property forefront in their minds. The whole process was made far easier due to Sally’s professionalism and commitment to being available and punctual at all times."
Sally Claxton was referred to us by a neighbour who had been impressed with her efforts in selling their home. After arranging to meet Sally we were impressed with her motivation and positivity about selling our lifestyle block. Sally was very supportive and encouraging. She respected our wishes and was there for the long haul. Kevin and I were impressed with Sally’s honesty and professionalism and would have no hesitation in recommending in the future..."
Sally Claxton was enlisted by me last year to sell my property in Dairy Flat. At all times Sally was a dedicated professional whose diplomatic approach to people and situations made the house selling process much easier than it may otherwise have been."
Yours faithfullyRose Golds
Sally represented us over the period August–November 2004. The sale and purchase of our property we sold in Dairy Flat and represented the Waitoki residence we subsequently purchased. We found Sally to be very genuine in ensuring the right outcome for her clients. Her professionalism cannot be questioned, and the marketing of our home was also comprehensive and well executed. We personally enjoyed having Sally represent us and would seek her out to help us in the future."
RegardsJayson and Fiona Ehn
Throughout the sales process, Sally kept us updated on a regular basis and was always truthful and realistic. Her advice on how to market our property meant that we could get the most out of our budget and gave our property high visibility in the marketplace. She was also key during negotiation to get the best offer agreed by both parties, but most notably to us as sellers. We found that Sally always listened to our views and, only once she understood our objectives, would she respond with her ideas which then resulted in the best way forward."Dennis and Amanda
