Found The Perfect Buyer's

Shane and Drew from Central Realty were recommended to us by our builder. He said they were unique, not pushy, but kind of perfect and he was absolutely right.

From the moment we met them we felt good about working with them. Their sales pitch was compelling and vibrant, strong but not pushy. We had the feeling they backed themselves all the way and didn't need to do the hard sell, their work would do the job for them.

To be honest their vibe was so good we just about insisted they list there and then, never mind we weren't in the slightest bit ready! 

So from there it was an easy decision to list with them when the time came. Even though they weren't the big agency. Their proposal to avoid auction made sense with the current market and our feeling about the kind of buyers that would like our house.

Shane and Drew backed the property, were honest about the price they felt they could get, stuck to that recommendation, and delivered all the way. In a market pre-Christmas 2017, where the post election flood had really changed the scene they worked hard, got the right buyers through and generated a competitive three way multi-offer. We were able to choose buyers we knew really loved the house and would enjoy it as much as we had. Leaving the sale of a loved first home feeling good was an awesome outcome.

Thank you Shane and Drew, we highly recommend you and would definitely use you again.

Persistence Pays Off

When the going gets tough, the tough get up early, work a bit harder and make sure they get the very best results for their people.

My clients Paul and Tracey took their North Shore home to auction with another agency. It passed in and they were unhappy with the result.  They were feeling disheartened and ready to throw in the towel. I told them to hang in there and try listing with me. We talked about the current market conditions and I assured them, good things come to those who wait and persist.

“It was challenging. The market changed the moment we listed the house, but Drew was always upbeat and told me not worry, he’d get the job done for us.” says Tracey.

They took their home to market for another 90 days and no joy. I convinced them not to give up and stay at it for another 90 days. We were getting close to the end of that time and they told me they’d had enough and were going to pull the “For Sale” sign down and chalk it up as a learning experience. Perhaps, relist after the election.

I asked them to hold for two more weeks

Then a few days later, it sold under a multiple agreement conjunctionally with Harcourt’s (condition on sale of property) vs Barfoots. (with an unconditional back up offer, in which we invoked a cash out clause) and then sold it unconditionally 5 working days later.

“We’ve become friends with Drew. He’s got the right personality for Real Estate. There’s always a feeling that he will come through. That he will get us there.”

 I’m really happy with this result and my clients are as well. The moral of story here is: don’t give up.


“WE DIDN’T WANT TO FALL UNDER THE HAMMER.”              

BACKGROUND

At the peak of the market in 2015Jordan and Ryan decided to sell their much loved property. “We felt very particular in the way we wished to sell and who we wanted to list with.”

CHALLENGES

They were extremely reluctant to take the property to auction having trawled through numerous agents, all of whom were pushing them to go under the hammer. “We were searching for an agent who would listen to what we wanted, give us the best advice, no pressure, and the best possible outcome for our home. Then we came across Drew from Central Realty, his no pressure, friendly and honest approach blew us away and we immediately knew we had found the agent for us.”

STRATEGIES

Drew presented Ryan and Jordan with ways to maximise the sale appeal of their home. From marketing advice to simple ways to dress their home to increase its appeal. He also connected them with other agents in the Auckland area who have the best resources and buyer contacts to sell homes for the best price. This is known as a conjunctional listing. Drew says, “It meant they got real bang for buck, real exposure for their property - and I got to make more connections to further help my clients.”

IMPLEMENTATION

Drew put a comprehensive marketing plan into action. He then provided them with weekly reports containing information about how many people had viewed the listing, who had phoned him, been through the property and what their feedback was. “The best thing for us was that right from the word go we knew there were no secrets. We were fully informed, he always provided us with honest answers and he made sure that the process was as non intrusive as possible.”

RESULTS

In the end they sold for a fantastic price which exceeded expectations. “The service that Drew and Central Realty provided us was second to none. We’re thrilled it was sold to a lovely family that is going to enjoy the home as much as we have over the years. We would not hesitate to use Drew and the team again or to recommend them to anyone wanting a simple, realistic approach to selling their property.”

Re: Sale 41 Landvale Court, Browns Bay, North Shore, Auckland

Drew Miller and Shane Cootes came highly recommended to us so whilst we were intially going to list with another agent we were so impressed by their professionalism and Sales and Marketing skills that we gave them the opportunity to list and market our house.

Within 10 days of the first open homes we had multi offers on the property and were able to conclude a successful sale. We were constantly kept in the loop before and after the open homes. With Drews sales skills and Shanes negotiating skills, they are a great team to work with. 

Extra special thanks go to Drew for his ability to deal with tenants and to get them on board to make the open homes a success. Not always an easy task for an agent!!! He went above and beyond to ensure that the house was presented well for the Marketing photos. Your calmness, honesty and humour is all much appreciated.

They certainly made the process very easy for us and we would certainly choose them as our preferred agents should the need arise in the future.

Thank you both.
