When I arrived in New Zealand from Italy in 1992 with a degree in law and a family in the building industry, I joined the fascinating world of real estate. Since then, I have focused on selling in the areas I love the most in Auckland; Parnell and the northern slopes of Remuera.
Most of my real estate career has been with Barfoot & Thompson in the Parnell branch, where I have had the privilege of being the top salesperson at least ten times.
Over my years in real estate, I have seen property cycles come and go, sometimes with escalating prices and other times in a challenging market. While the tactics I recommend keep changing, as the buying trends change during the different cycles, the base values and attributes I bring and my clients remark on, remain constant - integrity, honesty, perseverance, creativity, efficiency, loyalty and kindness. My values are reflected in recommendations from my past and present clients.
These clients have returned to me again and again, to help sell, buy and resell their properties, obviously finding my style and service level to their liking. I can count among my returning clients, colleagues, managers, friends and those who have become friends. They all know that I care, and like most Italians, I have passion, flair, and in my case, a love of real estate that has kept me succeeding in the industry for almost 20 years.
I have learnt to look for solutions where there seems to be none, always to find the positive and to keep going until I reach an outcome that works for everyone. I try to find those solutions efficiently, pragmatically and to help those involved work through what can be demanding situations.
“Sheryl and I would again like to thank you so much for your expertise guidance and care, throughout this process. This is a major life change for us and it was critical we got it right, and we did. Your dedication and responsiveness to our requests was nothing short of amazing. As I have always said, you are the best salesperson in Auckland !”Sheryl & Frank Pohl
We are so grateful to Silvia for selling our home. She was so wonderful to deal with. She had buyers on her books ready to go as soon as we signed with her.
The process of selling was as stress-free as I've known and we got a great price. She was very kind in dealing with our tenant, which is never an easy situation. We cannot thank her enough.
I would absolutely recommend her if you are thinking of selling.B & M Chunn
"Success in the real estate business requires an exceptional capacity for hard work, careful attention to detail and a warm and attractive personality. Silvia has all of these in ample measure."Jim Hodge

Silvia. Many thanks for your hard work and commitment in selling our house! You have been an amazing salesperson and have gone above and beyond for us.Nelisha & Paresh
We recently sold our apartment in Parnell and had the pleasure of dealing with Silvia. Her marketing and business experience was invaluable in the process of selling. She made the selling experience pleasurable with her calm, confident and efficient manner. She listened to our opinions and tailored the sales process to our needs. I would have no hesitation in recommending Silvia to future sellers and buyers.Billy & Margo Spowart
Silvia recently, very successfully, marketed and sold our family home of 31 years. Before marketing commenced Silvia gave us very valuable advice on how to best present the property to maximise the sale price. We would highly recommend Silvia for the sale of your property. Please feel free to call me personally to chat about how professional Silvia really is .
We have worked with Silvia on multiple occasions, both as a buyer and vendor. She is very passionate and honest about her work and goes extra mile with her efforts to meet her clients targets! We would highly recommend her to any prospective buyers or vendors for a hassle free and happy effortless sale!Ajay Desai and Nikhila Bagal
I have sold my home thanks to the great advice and marketing plans suggested by Sylvia. It has been a pleasure to work with her, from consulting on the make-over through to the final sale. I highly recommend Sylvia for all your real estate requirements.Deborah Wilkinson
After more than 40 years associated with the Real Estate Industry, and for the past decade Chief Executive of Barfoot & Thompson, I knew how important it was to select the right salesperson when I decided to sell my home following my retirement from the CEO role. My enduring memory of working with Silvia through all the stages of marketing and selling my home is her calm professionalism. I never doubted her ability to sell the place as long as there was a buyer out there, and she did not let me down. I recommend Silvia to anyone who is looking to list and sell their home. She will present the options to you and support you in making an informed decision at each step of the way. I never felt pressured but I always felt honestly informed with regard to the level of enquiry and activity on the property, and where it was positioned in the market as far as a potential buyer was concerned.
The outcome for me was a very good one - Silvia got me there and did an outstanding job.
We were delighted to work with Silvia again and extremely pleased with the all the marketing material and sale process. Always attentive, informative and knowledgeable about what is going on in the market, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her as the best agent in Auckland! With many thanks for a successful sale - Sarah and Ray (we have bought and sold four family homes with Silvia)Sarah Haydon
Silvia's energy, attention to detail, persistence and realistic yet enthusiastic approach combined to sell our house in Parnell. We found her a pleasure to work with, and are very pleased with the outcome.Denny Boothe
It gives me great pleasure to report that I was very fortunate to have Silvia Poletti as my agent. She was pleasant, courteous, efficient and proactive at all times. I cannot fault her performance which resulted in a very satisfactory and speedy outcome for me.Murray Jenkin
Silvia Poletti helped us buy our most recent house in Remuera, so it was a good fit to ask her to help us sell it.
Any agent can be efficient, helpful, professional, charming, etc. All claim to be.
Silvia is all that, but more - she makes things happen.
She ensures the right buyer gets to see the right property. That is all that is necessary.
I would be happy to recommend Silvia to any vendor. She will get you results.
I would like to thank you for your effort and professionalism and especially your support with the sale of my Parnell property, enabling me to achieve a very satisfactory price, considerably exceeding expectations.
I especially appreciated the detailed feedback from the open homes and subsequent prospective buyer viewings, which kept me well informed of the ongoing progress and interest. Your support of me as the vendor meant my stress was kept at a minimum and enabled us to achieve an excellent result.
I am taking this opportunity to let you know that yet again, it has been a great and extremely professional service that you gave me selling the Parnell home.
You have been my agent of choice in Parnell through various purchases and sales over many years now.
I wish you ever continued success in Parnell and if you find yourself in Nelson, please come and look at what I have chosen to do next!
We chose Silvia Poletti to sell our Parnell Townhouse because we new she had a very good knowledge of Parnell Real Estate and we have known of her for quite sometime. She was at an open home of a house we looked at buying in Parnell over twenty years ago. Silvia has a calm, natural, yet very efficient manner. She was willing to listen to our preferences and thoughts with selling our house. She was at all times patient and willing to compromise, putting us at ease. Silvia went out of her way to keep us informed re any progress with selling our house and also the other Townhouse attached to our complex which happened to be on the market just before ours. She new when to inform potential buyers of the possibility of buying our house so that we had a high chance of getting a good price.
I was impressed that Silvia remained calm and professional when it was obvious she had competition from another buyer, from another agent, and that she could get out bidded.
Silvia is a great Real Estate Agent and someone I would happily recommend to friends and would personally use again. She is also a very nice person and I hope we can keep in touch and have a few laughs.
All the best Silvia.
I recently asked and was referred to Silvia Poletti for marketing a property for auction. From our first meeting, I was kept well informed with marketing and advertising options and their subsequent results and I appreciated how Silvia and her associates were very respectful of the tenants before and during the open homes. I found Silvia a delight to work with and judging from the auction, she was spot on with her timing and reading of the market. This was a very positive experience during a time which can be stressful for all concerned. I would not hesitate to recommend Silvia and Barfoot and Thompson.L. Dilworth
Kathy and I would like to thank you for the successful sale of our home. We thought hard about who would be the best agent for us. We wanted someone who would sell the special architectural features of our property in addition to the usual components of a 4 bedroom family home, and you certainly did this. We thought we had a fairly good idea of the property's market value price but from the outset you realigned our expectations higher than we had anticipated and the final result was just as you said it would be.Max Peach
Just a short note to express our thanks for the unbiassed counsel, suggestions and sheer professionalism that you brought to dealing with the sale of our property. In a lifetime of selling property here and in the UK we have never before sold in just one day. You provided a Ferrari service and we would be happy to recommend you to any potential clients.Jill & Brian Ringwood
Thank you for the superb job you have done in marketing and negotiating the sale of our home. We are most grateful.Hilary & Tim Brewer
"This is the second time we have used Silvia's services to sell a property and we would not consider using anyone else as long as Silvia is available and willing to work with us again. What we particularly appreciate is her excellent feedback at every point of the process and her honesty..even when she is the bearer of news which may be not so good you always know that you are getting the truth. She has a delightful manner and personality and makes the whole process enjoyable.Lyn Jackson
"Having purchased the home from Silvia 10 plus years ago we have all ways been in touch with Silvia and she has always had time to discuss the market etc. She shows a real passion for the area and the company she fronts, Thanks again Silvia.Paul Graham

"I have bought and sold property in Remuera through Silvia Poletti in the period 2000-2009 and have found her very pleasant to deal with.

"Dear Silvia, I don't want the occasion to pass without thanking you and congratulating you on your success in dealing with our house sale. We had hoped that the passage of time since we had withdrawn the sale would allow improvement in the market but I for one was much pleased and surprised by the size of it, and am attributing the success to your handling of the affair............."Gordon Bogle...
"...............Due to the particular nature of my section the property proved harder to sell than I anticipated and it was a credit to Silvia's energy, determination and planning that I eventually achieved a satisfactory outcome. It was a pleasure to deal with Silvia........ I guess all property follows a similar path through the marketing and sales process and the main difference is the agent. With the strength of Barfoot and Thompson and the professional integrity of Silvia Poletti I would expect both the vendor and the buyer would be satisfied with any property transaction"J.P.Excell...
"Silvia is a discerning agent with a clear vision of the final goal, a property sale, satisfactorily carried out in the best interests of all. I would strongly recommend Silvia as an astute real estate agent and would call on her help again."Norma Russell...
Silvia is very pleasant to deal with. She kept me well informed on progress. Always positive and encouraging, she did not miss an opportunity to promote the property in the best light. Her conscientious efforts showed true diligence and integrity.
Silvia's professionalism was to be admired. I had every confidence in her.
The property sold within three weeks for our reserve price. The agent's efficient handling of the sale and paperwork was most impressive.
