Buying and Selling

Regardless of whether you are buying, or selling a home, you need to make sure you have access to honest and reliable advice and information to make the process as simple and enjoyable as possible.

I also have loads of expertise and resources available in the following areas:

  • Providing accurate market information
  • Pricing and listing your property correctly
  • Marketing your property widely and effectively
  • Generating enquiry
  • Attracting as many potential buyers as possible
  • Negotiating the best price for you
  • Assisting your sale through to successful settlement
  • Helping you find a new property
  • Keeping you fully informed


Pricing and marketing a property effectively takes great skill, and being able to translate market statistics and sales information is a key to getting this formula right. Once conclusions have been made, a tailored marketing strategy can be put in place that is specific to your property and target audience.

There are a number of ways of pricing your property including:

  • Marketing with a price
  • Auction
  • Tender
  • By negotiation
  • Deadline sale


Depending on the unique characteristics of your property and the marketplace, I can recommend the best and most effective pricing option for you. Marketing techniques are varied, and within the Harcourts structure I am able to offer a wide range of tools to make your property stand out. Through the fantastic Harcourts network, you are  also automatically listed on TradeMe, Realestate.co.nz, and the Harcourts Luxury Property Selection website giving amazing exposure. I will work with you to carefully develop both the content and placement of your marketing, so buyers are attracted to and engaged by your property. Some of the marketing tools I use are:

  • Newspaper and property features
  • Flyers/brochures & targeted mailouts
  • Website property features, including this website and the Harcourts web network
  • Office window cards
  • My existing client database and those of hundreds of other Harcourts agents
  • Professional photography and copywriting
  • Pictorial signboards
  • Open homes and property previews
  • Harcourts Bluebook


Selling or buying property is often a stressful time. That’s why I pride myself on clear communication from the outset. I am always available throughout the entire process, so if you have any questions at any stage please don’t hesitate to ask.
