“Results speak for themselves

We had bought through Anthony Carppe several years ago so our choice for him to handle the sale of a family property was easy. He was impressive then and was even more so recently. He investigated the current market, the position, and prospects for our sale in it, and predicted how the property should be positioned and sold. Anthony’s professionalism, confidence and process gave us great trust in what he said and demonstrated. He had the home sold in just one week with tens of groups eager to see the house behind a truly thorough and targeted campaign. He advised us on what to focus on in preparing and he was proven correct. Thus, our property was sold quickly, honestly, and well. Ongoing communication from himself, and his capable, effective, and friendly team, left us with no queries or doubts and enabled us to sit back and watch!

Anthony is so successful in sales because he listens, knows his business from every perspective and is clear about his priorities and the customers he serves. The results speak for themselves.”

“On sale to sold in 8 days!

Anthony and the Team at Bayleys Real Estate really know their market. When I decided to sell my house, I went with Anthony as I had only heard good things about him. Anthony was prompt in meeting with me and he had a great grasp on where I sat in the market. He was able to talk me through my options to tick my boxes and always left me with the final options on how I wanted to sell. From here, he gave me handy hints on what I needed to do to get the highest sale, and his team worked with me in getting the photography and wording spot on. When on the market, Anthony and Jane worked the market hard and we were rewarded very early on with a lot of keen parties to put down offers. The whole process for me from sign out on the road to sold was 8 days. If you’re looking at selling, Anthony should be your first and only call.”

“When you’re selling your house, should you choose the Agent with the lowest commission? Is ANY agent worth the higher fees? This was the decision we faced recently and if you’re thinking of selling your

home, please take two minutes to read this testimonial. It really could mean thousands of dollars more in your pockets. We decided to get 3 agents to value our home, we chose the two with the lowest commissions and were stuck for the third. We’ve had flyers in the mailbox from one agent for years but we couldn’t remember his name. We remembered his silly catchphrase “ANTHONY FOR ACTION” so we googled that and up came Anthony Carppe of Bayleys. So because of his persistence with the flyers, he became our 3rd agent. The first two agents warned of a post Covid price drop and a slow market and came up with very similar prices to list the house at. They were both nice people, professional and very likeable, but they left us feeling negative and depressed because our house wasn’t worth as much as we’d hoped. Then Anthony came with his valuation and it wasn’t just a little higher than the others, it was significantly higher. We asked him about the Covid price drop and the slow market and he said ‘What price drop? What slow market? He gave us an estimate of what HE could sell our house for. If he delivered on that price, even after paying his higher fees, we’d have a lot more money in the bank than we would if we went with one of the cheaper agents. What impressed us as much as the possible large financial gains, was his positive, can do, will achieve attitude. We just KNEW he’d sell it in the price range he’d quoted. 72 hours after the listing went live, he had an offer on the table at the top end of what he’d estimated. Everything he told us was spot on. If you’re wondering whether Anthony is worth the extra fees, the answer is, in our experience, YES, he is. His absolute commitment to achieving the best result for us was plain to see and he delivered 110% on every part of the sales process. We’ve read many testimonials and a day later we can’t remember what agent or company they were for, so if you take nothing else away from our testimonial, just remember the catch phrase “ANTHONY FOR ACTION”, turns out it’s not silly at all. It describes Anthony Carppe perfectly. “

“Made selling our home a breeze.

Selling our house was a big deal. So much money on the line made us feel quite vulnerable. Anthony and Jane have sold a house for us before and we were very confident that they would be the best people to deliver again, and we were not disappointed. Some of the stand-out qualities that we experienced included their knowledge of how the housing market works and the current environment, their empathy with our needs as sellers, their integrity and honesty. They were professional and reliable, with a good humour that made us relaxed throughout. We would not hesitate to employ their services again and would happily recommend to others. “

“The sale process was unbelievably quick and a very satisfactory result was achieved.

When we decided to sell our home we asked friends who had either recently sold or purchased a home for their experiences. Anthony Carppe was recommended and although we did not know Anthony we did know he was a high profile and successful agent. Based on recommendations and our own research we chose Anthony Carppe from Baileys Real Estate to market our home. When contact was made Anthony was very professional and a good communicator. He had a clear cut plan for marketing and clear guidelines of what was required from us. Anthony’s marketing team were also very professional. The sale process was unbelievably quick and a very satisfactory result was achieved. The presentation of the offer was clear and uncomplicated. We are totally satisfied with Anthony and his team and are very pleased with our choice. “

Tony – 27 Gilbert Street, Richmond (Vendor)


“In a fast moving market, Anthony was quick to assist. He communicated clearly and in a timely manner. In a location with practically no housing stock and with a very tight timeframe Anthony made our families dream come true with no stress at all. Thank you Anthony for going above and beyond. “

Trudy & Andrew – 27 Gilbert Street, Richmond (Purchasers)


“Anthony was a refreshing change from previous agents we had used selling houses. He was great at keeping us informed right through the process and even when our first contract fell over he flew into action and had an even better offer for us within a couple of days. We will definitely call Anthony when we are ready to sell again!”

Belinda & Carl – 1/20 Ranui Road, Stoke (Vendors)


"Having been a highly successful real estate agent myself, meant I knew the skills and work ethic I required when choosing an Agent to market and sell my home.

When I met Anthony, he had not been in Real estate long although he had been very successful in his previous selling career. I found him to have the focus, commitment, drive, marketing and selling skills I was looking for.

He was trustworthy, honest, punctual, professional and direct, all attributes I admire.

Because he was relatively new to real estate I decided to give him my property to market and sell, no easy task!!!

He was always courteous, informative about the market, followed up after prospective purchaser and open home inspections and worked tirelessly to achieve the final sale price.

His closing and negotiating skills are to be highly recommended and he always focused on achieving the best sale price.

It was always a pleasure communicating with him during the process and I would highly recommend him to market your home.

If you are looking for an Agent with his skills and qualities, who will out perform your expectations and all other agents in the Nelson, Richmond area contact Anthony Carppe at Bayleys Real Estate.

I wish him every success in his chosen career.

Yours Faithfully"

"I was impressed by the professionalism of Anthony throughout my selling process. He was a keen listener, responded in a timely manner, was a thorough researcher, an effective communicator and achieved a quick result".

Alison McAlpine - 14 Ledbury Road (Seller)


“After several months on the market with another agent and really disappointing results, we decided to have Anthony take over the listing.

He had his work cut out for him as we were in a rather unique situation, but with a refreshed and an amazingly effective marketing package we were rolled back out to the market and had an offer presented within a couple of weeks! Right from the outset Anthony really impressed us with his professionalism and motivation levels and these never once waivered.

The levels of communication with Anthony were outstanding and he really went above and beyond to make sure that we were kept well informed, and provided feedback on how things were progressing, tips to better present the home etc. Behind the scenes, Anthony’s assistant Kelly was also brilliant at revamping the advertising and making sure everything was running smoothly.

Anthony’s negotiating and closing skills were really what we employed him for, and without a doubt he didn’t let us down in any way and we would highly recommend him if you are thinking about selling your home. We will most assuredly be using Anthony for any future house sales or purchases”

Shane & Rebecca Mickell – 98 Washbourn Drive (Sellers)


"Putting our house on the market was an emotional step for us as we absolutely loved our home but due to circumstances which required us to move overseas it was something we had to do. What can we say; our experience with Anthony was short lived as our property was only on the market for one week! From the time the signs went up we had an unconditional contract 7 days later with a result we would never have dreamed of. Anthony was nothing short of professional from start to finish. He kept in contact with us on a regular basis and made the whole process smooth and stress free. If you are looking for a professional friendly approach to selling your home, Anthony is second to none and we will be recommending him to everyone we know".

“The process of selling 5 Bellamona Way was made easy and painless due to the work and commitment done by Anthony Carppe.

His professional approach was admired by my wife and I, he kept us up to date on a regular basis, providing feedback positive and negative on all that visited our property.

There was a good discussion prior to deciding what process and method we should use to market our property, our decision was made on sound and thoughtful advice supplied by Anthony.

The negotiation of the sale was a credit to Anthony has he was dealing with 2 interested parties and their lawyers which he handled admirably.

The total package provided by Anthony and the Bayley’s group was very professional, from the initial first meeting, the photography, house and section evaluation, good feedback after all the open homes, we felt at ease through the whole process.

Thank you for the professional manner you treated us and all those you came into contact with when selling our property. We have no hesitation in passing on your details to any of our contacts wishing to sell their property.

Best regards”

Jeff & Jenni Barnes - 5 Bellamona Way (Sellers)



Crossing paths with you has been an enjoyable and productive experience, the credit for this being all yours.

From our first random phone enquiry you immediately understood our short brief and then organised a short notice viewing of a property perfectly matching that brief which as you know we subsequently purchased.

The entire transaction has not only been painless but also conducted in a friendly and professional manner.

You are also to be commended for your follow up as we left Nelson within minutes of signing the initial offer. We have been very impressed with your attention to every stage of this sale and we are very happy with our purchase.

Thank you again for a job well done.

Kind Regards”

Ian & Rosemary Douglas - 5 Bellamona Way (Buyers)
