Client testimonials

Slide 1 of 11

I would like to acknowledge and express my sincere appreciation for the manner in which David marketed and sold our property. The property was listed for sale for the first time in over 70 years and there have been many agents wanting to secure the listing over this time. The situation was a little more complicated than normal, yet despite this he managed to achieve an excellent result on terms very favourable to us. His communication during our association was excellent and he replied instantly and kept us well informed every step of the way. The benefit of his experience and the ability of his team was clearly evident at all times. The fact that he managed to secure over 14 registered buyers at the Auction and I believe 8 individual buyers to bid on the day was a credit to the diligent process he provides . The decision of who to appoint for the marketing and sale of your property cannot be taken lightly, especially in the upper-end price range. I am happy for other prospective owners to consider my reference as a third party reassurance of the level of service you can enjoy from David Nightingale and his personal team.

We are immensely grateful to David and Victoria for their exceptional service throughout the sale of our home in Glendowie. Their unwavering commitment to professionalism, reliability, strategic planning, and dedication to securing the best outcome for us as sellers were truly remarkable. In a sea of real estate agents, David and Victoria's standout qualities set them apart. Despite being overseas vendors, they ensured we were kept informed at every stage of the selling journey, providing invaluable peace of mind throughout the process. Their expertise in negotiation, impeccable communication skills, proactive approach, and adept management of various scenarios were highly evident. Navigating an auction campaign in an uncertain market was certainly demanding, but David's and Victoria's experience and expertise eased our concerns. Their guidance and support were indispensable throughout. Without reservation, we wholeheartedly recommend David and Victoria to anyone in search of real estate professionals who prioritise their clients' best interests above all else. Their extensive experience in managing the often intricate process of selling a property, coupled with their ability to navigate unforeseen events, is truly remarkable. The value they brought to our sale far exceeded our expectations and cannot be quantified.

Elisabeth and Adam Hampson – Glendowie

David was recommended to me by a friend who had been very pleased with the work he had done selling their house. When you are selling a multi-million dollar home there are plenty of agents that tell you they can deliver a great result, but only a few that can. From the very first meeting it was clear that we were talking to someone who is passionate and experienced. What’s more, you don’t just get David, but also his personal support team, and the broader Bayleys group. A key member of the team is his wife Victoria, who is also a formidable sales person. Prior to signing a listing David made it clear that we had a role to play in a successful sale, and that included making sure the house was presented and staged nicely, and that we had an adequate marketing budget. So we said to him, if we do that, we expect you to get us a good result. The rest is history. We had three weekends of well attended open homes, with all leads promptly followed up, two strong offers prior to the close of the set date sale – and more importantly a SOLD sticker on the sign outside our house at a price exceeding our expectations.

The rating out of 10 should read 10++++. In a very difficult time for selling residential real estate David Nightingale and his wife Victoria achieved what many thought was the impossible. There is absolutely nothing that we could criticise them for. The presentation was great as was the feedback. This was not a quickfire list it and bank the commission. There were setbacks and it was a long campaign but David and Victoria were always confident of getting a sale on terms that were acceptable.

Neil and Cherry Black - Remuera

COMMUNICATION IS KEY! We are very happy to recommend David and Victoria Nightingale to you if you are considering listing your property for sale. They have provided us with an excellent professional service enhanced by their long standing real estate experience. They kept us informed every step of the way and guided us with their extensive in-depth knowledge of the current local market. We were delighted to achieve the sale of our Apartment after a 4-week campaign.

Gaspar and Rosemary Sanvicens - St Heliers

David Nightingale was recommended to us as being professional, honest, energetic and hard-working for the vendors, and this has been our experience. David and Victoria make an attentive, responsive and trustworthy team who were in constant communication with us. We followed their excellent advice and have been very pleased with the result they achieved at the auction with eleven bidders registered and multiple parties competing to secure the property.

J Norrie, N Davison and S Insley - St Heliers

Thank you to David for guiding us through the process of selling our home. We’ve kept in touch with David over the years and appreciated that you never hassled us to list. We eventually chose him because of his experience, energy and professionalism and he held true to those traits to the very end. Thank you also to his direct team, you have a great team and these days it appears to take a team to sell a home successfully. You and your team have exemplary communication skills and we felt very well looked after during the whole process. We appreciated your experience and sage advice which we relied on to achieve an impressive sale price.

Kate and Nathaniel Holloway – St Heliers

Our selling process was made so much easier by David’s professional manner, excellent communication, endless enthusiasm and friendliness. Through his marketing skills and experience the final result was way above our expectations. We also felt well supported by David’s marketing team.

Graeme and Jo Emerson - Glendowie

We would absolutely recommend David Nightingale & his team. When we first met David and he spoke about how he could help us we were impressed with his drive and passion for Real Estate. He and his team certainly lived up to all he spoke about and more. The bonus being that the property sold in the first week on the open market. Barbara & Graeme

Barbara and Graeme Cook – St Johns

David, Victoria and their team did a wonderful job selling our family home. Their assessment of our property was accurate, and their communication and marketing was excellent. What sets them apart from other agents is how hard they worked on our behalf, to find every potential buyer to ensure we had a competitive auction. Having secured a listing, a lot of agents go through the motions and then blame “the market” when they don’t achieve a great outcome. We never had any doubts with David and Victoria and the confidence we had in them paid off come auction day. We were delighted with the result. We would not hesitate to use them again and we have already recommended them to friends.

Richard and Liz Barker - Glendowie

David, and his professional team, worked tirelessly to secure a strong result for us in a challenging market. As reluctant overseas sellers, nervous about selling from afar, we felt we were in safe hands at all times. His team paid attention to every detail and helped us work positively with our tenant, our managing agent, and other stakeholders. He went out of his way to be available despite time zones and communicated clearly to us so that we felt a part of a very professional process. Despite weather and a challenging market, David secured a sale that was above what we wanted. We are most impressed and highly recommend David Nightingale and the team at Bayleys.
