What past clients have to say
I first met Vanessa at a golf Xmas event that she was sponsoring. I found her friendly, helpful and encouraging. I was scaling down but not really in favour of a retirement village. After looking at many different villages and apartments we found an ideal home. Vanessa assisted and guided me through the process of selling my own house and the purchase of my present residence. In a difficult market she sold my house for the price expected and kept me updated on progress with my new venture. Through all of this she was cheerful, encouraging and very helpful, arranging a furniture removal truck as well.
She was the best person I could have wished for to assist me in every aspect of the shift.
Bruce & Jennifer
My husband and I feel fortunate that we employed Vanessa in the recent sale of our property, and we would certainly recommend her services.
From day one, Vanessa provided us with all the information we required for the sale of our property. We had received quotes from other agents, who were to be blunt ‘very pushy”. Selling your home later in life, is a very emotional process, and it was reassuring to have someone who was empathetic to our needs, supplying regular updates every step of the way.
In our experience, Vanessa became a welcomed friend, who we can’t thank enough.
Bruce, Jennifer (and Findlay)
Thank you so much for selling our house in Bridgewater Village. Your ability impressed me from when we first met.
You possess all the qualities needed for success in your job, being honesty, commitment, and a high standard of integrity.
I appreciated you keeping in touch every step of the way. I will be recommending you to anyone I hear thinking of buying or selling. The beautiful gift basket you gave me is going down a treat, thank you once again.
Vanessa took on the sale of our house just before level 4 arrived.
We had only had one open home when this happened. She worked very hard behind the scenes through these trying times, and kept us up to date and informed. The house sold quickly (for the price we were hoping for) as we moved down the levels.
I recommend Vanessa for this and her good communication and trustworthiness throughout.
I have known Vanessa since 2015 when Vanessa was the Build Manager – Bay of Plenty for Ultrafast Fibre. In this role Vanessa was our key contact person for design, offers of service and client manager in order for our various developments in the Bay of Plenty to be serviced by fibre networks.
I found Vanessa to be very pleasant and trustworthy to deal with, her integrity and commitment to delivering broadband fibre reticulation to our subdivisions in time and to a high standard and reasonable cost was never questioned.
I have worked with Vanessa over the last four years in a role and capacity that she had, where professionalism, good communication and meeting ambitious delivery timeframes were critical.
Vanessa excelled in these attributes and requirements and always delivered on what she committed to do in timely and personable way. I would have no hesitation is recommending Vanessa to potential clients.
