Edward acted as the agent for the sale of my St Mary’s Bay property. He was recommended by clients who have used him and who are very experienced in the property market. As an executive townhouse my property had a very specific target market. Edward understood this and after a short campaign found the perfect buyer. Edward knows the market every well, has a great network, is honest in his appraisals and is an excellent communicator. He has a good supporting team. I was impressed that after the sale was unconditional he remained willing to assist including with the purchaser’s pre-settlement inspection. Over all a very positive experience which confirmed the recommendations I had received.

I have known Edward pack for more than 25 years. Firstly as a school friend of my sons, a teenager, young man and latterly as a professional real estate agent. I also consider him a great friend. In all this time Ed has been exceptional. He has grown into his chosen career with the intelligence and dedication so deserving of this profession. But most importantly is his honesty and complete reliability and respect towards all parties concerned in the sale. I have met a few real estate agents who wouldn’t know the truth if they fell over it. I highly recommend Edward Pack to anyone seeking to sell their home. He will achieve the best results possible for you.
I have literally worked with hundreds of agents in my 38 years in the buying and selling of Real Estate. This property Edward sold me took the best part of a year to negotiate between the Vendor, my wife and myself. Throughout the process Edward conducted himself in a manner more professional than more than 90% of the agents I have dealt with over my whole time in the business. Edward is an absolute pleasure to work with, he doesn’t push too hard but instinctively knows how to apply a little pressure at the right time, to get the deal done. He bought both parties together in a very astute, professional way on a very complicated deal. I would recommend any Vendor or Purchaser to work with Edward on any property purchasers or sales going forward.
I have known Edward Pack for a number of years both prior and since he has become a real estate broker. I have always found Edward to be focused and determined in any project he embarks on. As a real estate agent he has acted on my behalf both as a purchaser’s agent and a vendor’s agent and we have found his conduct and performance at all times to be exemplary. I would be more than happy to act as a referee at any time if asked.
We cannot recommend Edward highly enough. Edward met with us before the Christmas holiday and discussed the process in a very relaxed way, but was already thinking about potential buyers in a very targeted way. He then followed up with a well thought out marketing plan together with a time frame for our consideration. Edward was always professional, organized, easy to contact and calm. He was well informed about current market activity in the market segment we were in. His advice and comments were always considered and invaluable. We have dealt with many real estate agents over the years, but I don’t think any have shown more professionalism, energy or integrity than Edward. When our house did go on the market, Edward worked tirelessly and with great focus. As a consequence we had an unconditional sale within five days of its official listing and we were satisfied it had been viewed within that time by anyone who was seriously looking in that locality for that kind of home. Apart from the good work he did with the sale, Edward is a completely nice guy, who is a pleasure to deal with. He treats everyone with professionalism and respect, and with care for our concerns as vendors. He made the whole process as easy as possible and made us his top priority during the sale process. We have no hesitation in strongly endorsing him as a fantastic real estate agent and great guy to deal with.

Trustworthy, reliable, professional and totally committed are some words that come to mind when I think of Ed Pack. He sold our cherished home for our full asking price within a week of it being on the market and we were so impressed with Ed’s service that we asked him to find us a new home, which he did, and we purchased it within the same week of selling our home. I have no hesitation in recommending Ed to any prospective clients.
Tim and Paige Sundberg
I want to say a very public thank you to Edward Pack who sold my house at auction. I have never seen an agent work as hard as Ed did, and his skill and professionalism were outstanding. And we killed it on price! Best agent in the game. He comes highly recommended. Thanks Ed!
Edward located a special property and assisted me through a difficult multi offer situation to a successful outcome. I was very impressed with him and then gave him the listing for our home. Ed has great attention to detail and kept us well informed through the auction process which led to a good sale result. I have subsequently recommended him to a friend where Ed has also achieved a satisfactory prompt sale. I recommend Edward highly.
George and Erica Nathan
I decided to sell my home and used Edward Pack as my agent. Edward was recommended to me, and I decided to use him as my agent. From the first moment I spoke with Edward on the phone he was enthusiastic, and very helpful with all the steps I needed to take to sell my property. I like that Edward has a warm and approachable style to how he sells houses. He is results driven and nothing was too big an ask for Edward. Edward takes exceptional care of his clients. Edward has followed through right to the settlement process with me. He has a great team of people to call on and I couldn’t have been more happy with how everything worked out. I can’t recommend Edward Pack more highly if you are thinking of selling your home.
Edward has recently sold my property in Grey Lynn. He was a joy to work with and I felt informed during every part of the process. Not only is Edward charming and polite but he really knows his stuff, and I felt I could trust him completely. He was in constant contact with me, advising me of how the sale was tracking, how many visitors he had had to the property, and the likelihood of a sale. He was upfront from the beginning on the likely outcome of the sale and he was right on the mark. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him as an agent. Edward has also been most helpful in helping me to find a property to buy. He bid on my behalf at a recent auction and I was most impressed with the way he undertook the bidding in such an authoritative manner. He is currently in search of the perfect property for me which I have no doubt he will secure!
We recently both sold our current home and purchased our new one with Edward and in what could have been an extremely stressful few weeks Ed made the whole situation run smoothly and stress free. Our expectations were exceeded when Ed sold our house in just two days. A true professional, Ed kept us informed and up to date throughout both processes making the sales seamless. I can’t recommend Ed enough, reliable, organised, easy to deal with, extremely knowledgeable and an all-round outstanding person!
Philippa and Marvin Rasmussen
Edward Pack has sold 2 high end properties for us this year. On both occasions he exceeded our expectations not just in terms of price, but also the service that he provided. Edward is definitely an extra mile agent. He always surpassed the level of commitment we would usually expect from a real estate agent. He is totally professional, reliable, and enthusiastic. He has in depth market knowledge and relates well to high end purchasers. Edward is able to think on his feet and has excellent negotiation skills. He has a great eye for detail and put together a well executed marketing plan. Edward's calm disposition, but tireless energy made the whole selling process a pleasure for us. We highly recommend Edward.
Bruce and Christine McLean
We had a totally smooth sale process with Edward from him putting a proposal to us, the auction, the negotiation after the auction, to settlement. Edward was very professional and easy to deal with throughout and didn't at any time put pressure on us to acheive a particular outcome. He had a genuine interest in the property and in getting us a good result, which he did. Highly recommended.
Sarah Mitchell and Richard Scoular
Edward sold our home in Remuera last year. We were very impressed with his professionalism and level of communication (before and during the sale period), and the rapport he was able to develop with potential buyers. We thought Edward created an effective marketing campaign and were left in no doubt that we had secured the best price available.
Jason Goodall and Emma Lamont-Messer
Edward Pack recently sold our property at 1 Peacock Street which we have owned for over 40 years. It was not a straightforward property to sell and Ed handled every detail with complete professionalism. He kept us fully informed, daily, in fact. He listened and thought, his patience and attention to details were exemplary.
Having decided to sell our property in Remuera, Auckland we engaged Edward Pack to be our Sole Agent. Edward's charming personality and expertise on advice, presentation of the property and marketing was invaluable. So much so that we had great interest immediately, which resulted in an unconditional sale in less then one week! We therefore have no hesitation in recommending Edward as a thoroughly professional and highly effective Agent for the sale of any property.
Timmy and Barry Thomas
We have had reason to use the services of Ed on two occasions in the past 12 months. Let’s be honest, it is a strange person who really enjoys selling their family home - it is more a matter of the ‘least pain.’ In our instance with Ed it was as painless as things can be. It started when he made the proactive approach to us. Knowing our situation from a previous transaction he had been involved with he, in effect, created the deal. He did this to the extent that we didn’t feel the need to go out and test the market. We trusted Ed’s advice and this trust was repaid when he promptly delivered an offer that we accepted. All round it was as good as it can get. Probably the best test of this is; are we still talking? And would we use Ed again? Obviously the answers are yes. Ed is a quiet unassuming operator who just gets on with doing the job. It’s disappointing that his sort of service and professionalism is so much of a rarity. It is for this reason that Ed stands out… and the reason that I am offering this reference.
Though unrequested, I am writing this letter to thank you for your efforts in the recent successful marketing and sale of my property in Bassett Road. Though marketed in the current difficult economic conditions we believe you achieved an excellent result in a relatively short period. As a result we have been able to purchase a replacement home. In particular your personal service, enthusiasm and attention to detail made the whole process very straightforward and professional.
We have recently had the pleasure of having Edward Pack sell a property for us. We are pleased to say that we found him professional on all counts. He is cheerful, reliable and very knowledgeable. Edward is also great fun to be around. We would have no hesitation in recommending Edward if you wish to sell a property, he will make the whole process so much easier. He is blessed with heaps of enthusiasm and is a very hard worker, it’s comforting to know that someone is doing the very best that they can on your behalf. We felt Edward to be dedicated to his profession and to achieving the best possible result.

Caroline and I are writing to acknowledge our appreciation to Edward in the sale of our property. From our first initial meeting and then throughout the campaign, Edward displayed a high level of professionalism and integrity. Given the difficult nature of the property market at present it became important for Edward to support our expectations but manage the buyers into a competitive situation. Edward worked with us to build a successful and effective marketing campaign which resulted in capturing high numbers at our open homes, good interest in our property, and the seven strong bidders on the Auction day and most importantly a resulting sale. I would not hesitate to recommend Edward.
Ed Pack was recommended by a previous client. He gave me a broad price estimate but promised a commitment to represent my property in the marketplace to its fullest potential. The sale result exceeded all expectation. Ed's dedication to the sale process and communication were outstanding. I would recommend Ed to anyone looking to market their home.
We have just settled into our new home and want to record formally, and by way of testimonial, our appreciation of Edward for the effort put in to sell our previous property and in finding our subsequent purchase. While the home we have just sold was new, in a uniquely private location and virtually on Hobson Bay the price achieved in the mid $4m’s before the first open home was an outstanding result. The home that you found for us fitted our requirements exactly and in a very timely manner. This is the sixth property transaction totalling almost $14m that we have completed in Parnell over the last 10 years and while we have engaged other high profile agents from time to time you have in the end handled all 3 of the sales. We realise that vendors are rarely satisfied that they get the full price they expected but we appreciate that it is extremely difficult to pick the top or the bottom of any potential sale – or purchase for that matter. Achieving a sale that fairly reflects the property value and satisfies the vendor expectations is not easy but Edward did just that by managing the processes very efficiently, professionally, and pro-actively resulting in his negotiating three sales and one purchase at prices that we were more than happy with.
Rod and Del Cameron
Edward did an amazing job representing our property in Remuera. His enthusiasm and work ethic packed the auction full of potential buyers. He kept us well informed on the interest in the property. He is very personable and easy to work with - we highly recommend Edward to help any buyer or seller.
