“Fleur Denning was the estate agent chosen to market and sell a property in Parnell. The sale was a deceased estate, and as executors of the will, it was our responsibility to the estate to achieve a price that could not be challenged by a beneficiary. Fleur’s appraisal was useful and enabled us to set a reserve for the property with confidence.
Fleur’s experience and local knowledge were of great benefit to us. Her client list is impressive. Her marketing and advertising showed the property to its full advantage.
Fleur was responsive, understanding of all the issues, and she worked well with 3 executors, all who live in other parts of the country. Her communication was thorough, and she kept us fully informed throughout the sale process. Her reporting was detailed. She provided written reports after all open homes, with details of follow up conversations with all viewers.
We confidently recommend Fleur as a high achieving, professional and trustworthy agent.”

I have known Fleur for 8 years and have recently purchased a property at 38 Bradford Street, Parnell where she was their sole agent.
I found Fleur thoroughly professional and ethical. Every call and email was responded to immediately.
What really impressed me was that Fleur would take the time to meet with me-and the vendor- during the negotiations rather than relying on the telephone or email.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Fleur and should you require and further information, please do contact me.

We engaged Fleur to sell our property in Parnell because we had met her when looking for a property to buy and she had made a really good impression with the way she went about things and her direct and honest manner.
Her excellent reputation was also a factor in our decision and we were aware of a number of other sellers who had sold their properties with Fleur. We did not regret our decision. The advice she gave us was excellent and she worked diligently to achieve the best possible result. Her demeanour is calm and friendly at all times and she inspires confidence and trust.
We think some of her greatest attributes are that she is always polite and honest, she always has a smile on her face and for those reasons people immediately like and trust her. Selling a property can be extremely stressful but thanks to Fleur the process was made easy. She achieved what we believe was a great outcome for us and she handled negotiations with great skill and attention to detail. Her performance was quite simply exceptional and we cannot recommend her highly enough.

“We sold our Parnell home at auction in November last year through Bayleys Remuera, having chosen Fleur Denning specifically as the agent we wished to use. From initial scoping in September to settlement in January this year, Fleur was at all times the consummate professional. Her advice was balanced, encouraging and reflected the thoroughness of the background work and follow up she undertook, leading to a successful sale at auction. Throughout, Fleur’s communications with us were quite exemplary. They were informative, realistic and always focussed on achieving an acceptable sale for us in the agreed time scale. We would highly recommend Fleur to prospective sellers and buyers
– K & J Stotter
As a lawyer I have dealt with quite a few real estate agents in my time, and have to say Fleur was honestly impressive. She was thorough and friendly, and always surprised by doing more than we expected. When we won the auction bid, she gave us a bottle of wine to say congratulations. Even after the transaction closed and she had been paid her commission, she voluntarily offered to do a final handover property inspection and report and duly did so on her own time. She had no obligation to do any of this and could have simply done what was required within the scope of her instructions and we would have thought nothing of it. But she apparently goes the extra mile to make sure her clients are happy, and that such an important transaction is as pleasant and memorable as it can be. I would recommend her excellent customer-focussed services highly to anyone.

“Selling your home is one of the most important and potentially stressful times in your life – it generally involves a lot of money and a lot of memories & emotions. So to have a professional agent to help you through this is essential. Well, Fleur is the type of real estate agent you dream of! She is extremely professional in all that she does – she communicates on a regular basis and always ensured we were up to date with the latest progress in our sale. She demonstrated a lot of empathy about the importance of the sale to us and we really felt that she was doing the best for us. She was always cheery and positive when we spoke and clearly identified the types of buyers we were looking for. She provided in depth reports of the viewing groups and also those who were seriously interested.
As a result, we ended up with a sale price beyond our expectations – an outstanding result from an outstanding real estate agent.”
- D Lindsay
“Selling our home in Parnell, Fleur did everything we asked for – and so much more. She gave the important things priority, communicated with us daily, and was meticulous and prompt when dealing with the administrative tasks. Nothing was too much trouble. A tireless worker, who found the right buyer and achieved an excellent result for us”.

To whom it may concern. I am delighted to be able to write a testimonial for Fleur Denning who sold my house for me recently in Parnell. I cannot speak highly enough of her professionalism and dedication to the process. I was kept very well informed during the lead up to the auction and the on the day of the sale, there was no doubt in my mind that both Fleur and the auctioneer were working with my absolute interests at heart. Her attention to detail continued well after the auction. I have bought and sold a number of properties in my life and never have I experienced such dedication from an agent.
In brief Fleur will work and succeed in getting the best possible price for a property and I would definitely use her again, without hesitation, should the need arise.

“Having been a Parnell resident for many years Fleur's knowledge of real estate in the area is unsurpassed. Given this and her calm, non-aggressive manner meant it was an obvious choice to engage her to sell our house. Added to this she found a property for us that we had admired for some time. We were very happy with all aspects of the sale and purchase.”
- E. & D. Lunken
“We would not hesitate to recommend the services of Fleur Denning for buying and selling property. We recently purchased our home in Parnell through Fleur and thoroughly appreciated her honesty and professionalism. We were attracted to the house through the stylish marketing campaign run by Fleur and quickly discovered that no request was too much trouble for her. On several occasions Fleur drove across town late at night to fit in with our own work and family commitments. Fleur constantly communicated and kept us updated through a slightly extended negotiation, where she worked hard to ensure the needs of all parties were met. We are extremely grateful to Fleur for assisting us to purchase the home we really wanted. On our arrival to the neighbourhood, Fleur was there to welcome us and has facilitated many introductions with other local people. She is a dedicated professional and we certainly hope to work with her again in the future”.

“I wanted to express my warmest thanks for the extremely professional and competent way you facilitated the sale of my late Aunt’s house. As executors of her estate we knew choosing the right real estate agent was critical. Out of the four agents we interviewed and mystery shopped, you stood out as the best candidate due to your people skills, preparation, presentation and knowledge of the area. We had high expectations of you prior to the sales process, yet you managed to exceed those expectations. Handling the sale of a house for an estate requires working with numerous executors and lawyers and your communications with all parties was excellent. You advice and assistance with both the big issues and the little things was willingly given, always helpful and obviously made with our interests at heart. Thanks to your regular market feedback as executors we knew exactly what was happening in the lead up to the auction, which helped us set an appropriate reserve. The auction itself went extremely well and we felt the price achieved was the maximum available on the night, all one can realistically expect. Your communications to us didn’t cease with the sale, right through to settlement you kept us informed and I know you were doing the same with the buyer, which made for a smooth settlement. I’m more than happy to highly recommend your real estate service to anyone selling or buying a house.”
- J. Macfarlane
“I have recently purchased at Auction a property with Fleur Denning as the Vendor’s Agent. Fleur guided me through the auction process and I found her completely honest and open with me so that I was well prepared on Auction Day. Fleur is that rare person who combines a very high professionalism and integrity with a warm and caring personality. I found Fleur very reliable, she related to both my requirements and budget and I can recommend her without hesitation to anyone wishing to sell or purchase a property. I wish her well in the future and she deserves to be an extremely successful Real Estate Agent.”

"We wish to commend Fleur Denning for her exceptional, professional manner in assisting us with the purchase of our townhouse. From the first time we met her we were impressed with her gracious smile, genuine warmth and efficient manner as she attended to our many queries. Her responses were immediate and at all times (some of them being challenging) she maintained a presence of calmness and assurance giving us the confidence that she was genuinely interested in doing all that she could within her power and experience to allow our purchase to be successful."
-T. Skinner and W. Senior
“My wife and I have known Fleur Denning in her capacity as a real estate sales agent in Auckland, NZ, since circa 2010.
We have purchased a property where Fleur Denning was the contracted sales consultant and more recently as vendors we engaged Fleur to manage the sale of a property on our behalf.
On both occasions we have dealt with Fleur she has provided a truly professional service. Her integrity and commitment to understanding both buyer and vendor needs along with an intimate understanding of the property and development of sound marketing strategies have in our opinion produced very good outcomes for all parties.
We would certainly engage Fleur to help us with any future property purchases or sales.”
-R & L Andrew
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank Fleur Denning for the absolutely fantastic service she provided us with whilst selling our home.
Fleur at all times remained professional and has the absolute highest integrity. It can be a difficult time selling your property and the decisions you have to make, but Fleur made the experience pleasurable. We felt at the end of the day Fleur ensured the best possible outcome for us in a short space of time.
We would highly recommend her service for anyone wanting to sell their property. Fleur provided the highest standard of service and her marketing advice and knowledge made it very easy for us. She made us feel very special, with the knowledge that she was working for us every step of the way.
Fleur really went beyond the call of duty, the most important aspect was her trust.”
-N & C Jones
“Fleur Denning sold our family home. We found her to be utterly professional and reliable during what was an emotional process at times. She catered for our needs and provided us with valuable feedback and insight during the process.
The whole promotion and sales exercise was conducted with great dignity and we would have no hesitation in calling upon Fleur in the future and would happily recommend her services.”
“Fleur recently completed the sale of a new residence on our behalf. The property was not easy to sell as it had certain limitations imposed by our need for privacy. However, Fleur retained her optimism and positive approach at all times during the selling process. Her efforts paid off and the sale was completed to our satisfaction.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Fleur as someone who conducted the sale process for us in a highly professional manner, and kept us fully informed with regular updates. Her integrity and enthusiasm are to be highly commended and I would be happy to support this testimonial if contacted by phone.”

“It is with pleasure I provide a letter of recommendation to you, thanking you for all the assistance you gave me during the recent sale of my property and my move to a retirement village. I always found you to be a caring and trustworthy person. You presented me with a very detailed plan and took time to explain it to me in thorough detail.
Communicating with you was never a problem as you were always accessible and helpful with your advice. I certainly appreciated the time you spent following up all enquiries, and I was delighted with the final result which exceeded my expectations, but which was the figure you had in mind at the time. This showed me that you knew the market very well.”
“I recently sold the place I called home, my apartment of over 40 years. I’d heard horror stories of real estate agents and with slight trepidation I entered into a contract with Fleur Denning. It turned out my concerns were completely erroneous, mostly due to their delightful agent Fleur Denning.
My experience was pure pleasure, and Fleur’s attention to detail was impeccable. She was meticulous and absolutely magnificent in all aspects to do with the preparation, presentation and the sale of my property. Fleur was always very considerate, open and honest and communicated fully with me in each and every step of the sale. I felt very confident that she would always do her best for me.
My apartment fetched far more than I hoped for and the staff were all so delighted for me, as though it was their own apartment when it sold at auction.
I have no hesitation in recommending Fleur Denning as a most astute real estate agent. Fleur is an intelligent and delightful young lady and was a joy to deal with. I recommend Fleur to all my friends, or anyone else should they wish advice or help in selling their home. They will be very lucky to have her as their agent.”
