"Sue and I would like to thank you for the very professional approach you had to selling Arney Rd, and the skillful marketing you employed which really brought the house to the public (particularly the Herald article). Also we are very grateful for the many hours you put in over the last 18 months in keeping the sale going when many others would have gone cold. It presented well but was always a house that required a specific buyer, so well done in finding two at the end of the campaign. And please thank Bonnie for her efforts at the open houses last month."
David & Sue
"This is to place on record our complete satisfaction and grateful thanks to Stephen Rendell of Barfoot & Thompson in Remuera for the superb promotions and marketing of our residential property.
Stephen's sound advice and detailed attention to the schedule and placing of advertisements (in the New Zealand Herald, the Property Press, and the internet) was most effective, as was the design and placement of the imposing sign at the street frontage of our property.
Equally impressive was Stephen's quiet and unobtrusive manner in handling prospective purchasers viewing the property. We specifically asked that an 'open home' be avoided and that only serious potential buyers be shown the property by appointment. Stephen personally handled this arrangement impeccably.
The satisfactory sale of our property within two months went without a hitch, and we would unhesitatingly recommend Stephen to any prospective vendors or buyers."
Leone and Philip Harkness
"I am happy to record my great satisfaction and appreciation of how Stephen managed the process of sale of my property which I had owned for 30 years. I selected Stephen because I knew him, trusted him and particularly trusted Barfoot & Thompson to be the right firm to manage what was a significant sale of a unique property.
From the time I called Stephen in to discuss the timing and parameters of the sale until after we had achieved a very satisfactory sale at auction, I could not have wanted for better guidance, decision making, support and management of the process and of the large list of interested parties than that which Stephen delivered.
His advice on many matters of presentation and promotion all turned out to be spot on. His connections both within the firm and with outside consultants to the process were always productive, professional and yet friendly and harmonious . His relationships with other agents within Barfoot & Thompson (I think 27 agents came to the initial internal agent day) and to his own manager and the auctioneer instilled me with confidence. I felt considered and able to ask questions or propose alternative approaches at all times.
In a nutshell, the excellent sale that was achieved was very much thanks to the personal commitments and professional and measured management Stephen brought to the process. "
