We want to say thanks for all your help getting us into our first home – a property that we still can’t quite believe is ours it’s so gorgeous!
After months of frustration with the Auckland market and the dreaded auctions, we were nearing the end of our tether at constantly missing out. Having the set date of sale/negotiation process enabled us to sort out our due diligence without having to attend an auction and seeing the house price climb up out of reach within moments.
Thanks again for all your hard work, prompt, friendly communication and dealing patiently with our first-buyer nerves.
We’re off to have a drink with friends, in our very own house, looking out onto our own fabulous garden. Cheers!

"I just wanted to tell you, how fabulous you were in selling my home recently, I was thrilled with the outcome, your negotiating skills were nothing short of fantastic, you certainly know how to Market and Sell properties, your expert professionalism and dignity were maintained throughout the whole process.
I would unreservedly recommend any future customers to you.
"Michelle Stanborough recently handled the sale of our property at 70 Universal Dr in Henderson. My partner Shannon and I would like to commend her for all her hard work, effort and fantastic service. Michelle is extremely professional but above all honest and has a real empathy for her clients which we and the buyers (whom we have got to know a little) really appreciated.
In an industry which at times has a bad name, people like Michelle are a shining light and we would highly recommend her to anybody that is buying or selling. I have had some involvement with the industry in Australia for some years so I don’t say these things lightly about Michelle and both Shan and myself are very grateful that we picked her to sell our home."

"When we were looking at buying a new house most of them were listed as auction which put my wife and me off as you are uncertain as to if you even have a shot at being able to afford the house. With this in mind we decided to sell with Michelle as our agent because she sat down with us and explained all of the pros and cons for each process.
With all of the information presented to us we were able to make an informed decision and we chose “Set Date of Sale”. This way there was very little stress and a lot of interest in our property. We ended up selling our house for a fair price in a short period of time which meant we could start looking for a new house faster knowing how much we could spend.
My wife and I are very happy with the way Michelle conducted business and would be happy to use her again."

"In the competitive Auckland housing market I had spent months investing time and money into researching properties, then waiting for them to go to auction, only to lose time and time again against several aggressive bidders competing for the same house. The auction process can be really heartbreaking as you spend weeks thinking that you may have found your new home only to have your dreams dashed in the middle of an auction room.
The ability to negotiate with the seller and know within a short period of time that my offer had been accepted was refreshing and stress free. I had done my research so knew the market value of the property and the sellers had a realistic expectation with regards to price and timelines.
Being able to work with Michelle on this purchase was a delight and really took the stress out of buying a home. She maintained e-mail and phone contact through the whole process so I never had to worry about anything.
I can’t express enough how happy I am in my new home and how the whole process was made so easy by Michelle an her team.
