I can't say enough how grateful I am to yourself, Diane, Paula, Ethan and the rest of your team for making what is often perceived as being quite stressful to being a seamless process. Right from the start, with the meeting with Diane, I was kept well informed and felt a full sense of assurance that the campaign was well managed and on track. The amazing outcome yesterday is credited to the professionalism of yourself and the team, not to mention the auctioneer. I don't believe I would have achieved the same result without you.

I decided go go with Bayleys as the purchase I made with Julie was easy and seamless. Julie was quick to respond and all of the information I needed was promptly provided. This is why I decided to sell through Bayleys and chose Julie & Jo as my agents. Bayleys also valued my apartment higher than other agents which made me feel that would also be communicated to potential buyers. I would be happy to use Julie & Jo’s services again in the future.

Selling your home can be a stressful and emotional time. Putting your largest asset and the place you live your life into the hands of a stranger, trusting they will get the result you want and treat you with care can feel risky. With Julie from the Bayleys team you need have no concern. We were impressed from the first moment and held that confidence throughout the marketing period and the auction. The level of professionalism, experience, care, communication and genuine connection was superb. This team set a new level of expectation for us with the real estate sector. We wholeheartedly recommend her to you and will certainly be coming back for more when we re-enter the market. Trust her – you are in safe hands.

We have nothing but positive things to say about Julie’s complementary selling styles, professionalism, knowledge and passion for what she does. She was dedicated to creating the best possible outcome for us and we really appreciated that. We would certainly engage her again to sell a property or assist in finding us a new one. And would have no hesitation in recommending Julie to anyone who was looking to sell a property.

“They were both fabulous – no questions about it. Their professionalism and dedication at all times was exemplary (in contrast to the 12 years we had dealing with other agents). They never let us down, every call was returned, every email replied to and ever question properly answered. As an exercise in customer satisfaction, you scored 100!”

“Incredibly professional and always went the extra mile to ensure they presented the best possible view of the apartment. When there was an issue with the storage locker Diane even brought along her can of CRC! No problem too big, or too small…”

“Diane, Julie and the team have been a true god send for me. Being based overseas, they took the reigns in managing open homes, existing tenants etc with aplomb. After much shopping around, I am so glad that I chose to go with Diane and Julie, I can’t recommend them enough.Honest, very easy to deal with, very responsive and full of very useful advice. Very happily recommended”,

Diane and Julie have been a pleasure to work with during the sale of my character apartment.  I was first impressed with Diane and Julie in how they looked after me as a potential buyer.   Always available, understanding what I was looking for and recommending good quality properties to me.  I knew then that I would want them to look after selling my property.  We got a great price and a number of potential buyers attended the auction.  They both have a great sense of humour and have a great support team that work with them.  A bit like a Real Estate Charlie’s Angel’s.

Just a quick (love) note to say thank you so much for all your help in selling my apartment in the Lister Building.  I am living overseas and you guys really made this feel like this was no barrier.  All the way through the process I felt really well informed (it was my first time selling) & supported.  The team you pulled together, starting with yourselves, the guys who dressed the apartment, your admin team and the auctioneer were all total professionals and I felt like you all took getting the best result for me as a personal mission!  And what a great result.  Thank you!!

The service we have received from you has been absolutely stunning and impressed us both and has made everything so easy. We are totally delighted with our apartment as it ticks all our boxes and we are more than happy to recommend you!

– Bron & Ross, 121 Customs Street West

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your expert professional performance! We hope we will be working together in the future again, wishing you all the best! With warmest personal regards.

It is with gratitude that I recommend Diane Jackson and Julie Prince as a real estate agents. When I first decided to sell my Auckland Central Apartment, my first thought was to call Diane, as she was the agent I had bought the apartment through 12 years ago, and she was outstanding then. They are both incredibly professional, and always went the extra mile to ensure they were presenting the best possible view of the apartment. When there was an issue with the storage locker – Diane bought along her can of CRC...no problem to big or small! Their game plan of taking it to auction was the best decision. I found Diane and Julie to be highly attentive agents. I am very pleased to recommend Diane and Julie to anyone looking to buy or sell an apartment. They are hands down the best in the business in my opinion.

– Janine Bayley, 22 Kitchener Street

There is no doubt in my mind that because of Diane and Julie’s totally professional approach and unflagging commitment to the sale of my apartment, I sold it at the best possible price. They were attentive to every aspect involved in the sale and many times showed their expertise and vast experience in the Real Estate business. I would never hesitate to use their services again should the need arise.

– Anne Soper, Westminster Court

I would like to recommend Diane Jackson and Julie Prince as a superb pair of real estate agents. Diane and Julie sold two apartments in the George Court building on Karangahape Road for us. We were very happy with the result. What impressed me most was their professionalism persistence and dedication. These two women really know what they are doing. Having crafted a leading presence in character apartments and the central apartment market in general, they have a large database and set of relationships with potential buyers already. They understand all the issues involved with character apartments, which have their own idiosyncrasies. They are also easy to work with, straightforward and drama free. I would not hesitate to use them again. Thanks again Diane and Julie

– Elaine Palmer, George Courts

More than a week after our wonderful auction result, we both remain in a state of disbelief! Yet while we are being assured the price reached was unsurprising given the apartment’s great location, the reputation of the building, the double aspect outlook, the décor etc etc, so far as we are concerned there are only two explanations for such a successful outcome – Diane Jackson and Julie Prince. They were both fabulous – no questions about it. Their professionalism and dedication at all times was exemplary (in total contrast to the 12 satisfactory years we had dealing with a variety of Auckland rental agents). They never let us down – every call was returned, every email replied to, every question properly answered. To the extent I started querying whether they ever slept, such were the godforsaken hours these were being sent! Absolutely nothing was left to chance. They are true professionals, right to their fingertips. We will be forever indebted to Bayleys and to them. As an exercise in customer satisfaction, you all scored 100!

I am writing to you following the successful auction of my property at The Carlisle, Emily Place, Auckland Central in September. Diane Jackson and Julie Prince conducted a superb marketing programme over a 3-weekend period. Their formal weekly reports, emailed to me at the beginning of each week were excellent and kept me fully aware of the marketing progress. Not only that though, Diane sent me text messages after each open-home, advising of the number of groups who had inspected the apartment and the comments and feedback she had received from these potential buyers. The marketing programme was finalised with a formal meeting at my house the day before the auction when Diane, Julie and Sabina presented me with their marketing files, a list of prospective buyers and an action plan for the auction to maximise the potential for a sale. The auction speaks for itself, realising a sale price exceeding my expectations. I have known Diane Jackson for several years now, both personally and in a professional capacity and I can only commend her as having the utmost integrity in all aspects of real estate. In my opinion, she is an asset to your company.

Diane and Julie were fun to work with and thoroughly professional in marketing my apartment. They know what they’re doing. The open homes leading to auction went smoothly, following their lead the apartment was well presented and, in the end, the sale price exceeded expectations.

Diane – hello from Japan! Excellent result and further demonstrates my belief in maximizing opportunities by use of a premium brand as Bayleys. I’m thrilled for you and of course equally excited for Marion. Well done – great outcome for everyone in the block.

– James McElwee

From the first meeting to the successful sale of our flat both Diane and Julie were absolutely wonderful! Not having sold by auction before we were both a little unsure of the process. However the order of events was explained in simple straightforward terms that immediately put us at rest. The advertising was very well organized in advance through all the usual mediums and then there was a busy three week period of open houses. Throughout this time we were given on a weekly basis very precise reports on who had viewed the property, what their thoughts were (good and bad) and through this elimination process this enabled us to weed out time wasters and serious buyers. The day before the auction we were introduced to the auctioneer who yet again explained in layman’s terms the running order of events and the legal obligations involved for all parties, which yet again set our minds at rest. Naturally on the day we were a little on edge to say the least, however between Diane and Julie they’ve seen enough auctions to last a small lifetime so they know all the right words to calm your nerves. The auction was successful and the after sales care was excellent too, you don’t feel like a number pushed through the machine and forgotten! So once again ladies thank you for all your efforts!!
