WINNER - 2017 REINZ Best Multi-Media Campaign of the Year
Linda comes to Bayleys with a stellar background in global marketing, as well in marketing and selling of real estate. She has spent many years at top global companies holding senior positions and delivering excellent results. Linda brings this same high level of business acuity to marketing and selling homes and her goal is to maximise the profitability of your home.
Linda employs the same methods to sell your home as she would in marketing top global brands - an ability to identify what is unique about your home and to emotionally engage potential buyers - what she calls "tugging on the heartstrings." By doing so, she creates a competitive bidding environment that delivers higher prices for her clients. But Linda's exceptional skills don't end there. She is keenly aware of today's ever-changing market, and how people interact with each other, so she offers a distinctive multi-media approach when marketing your home - through carefully produced high-end videos and various social media touch points, along with all of the traditional media such as print and web sites. By offering her unique multi-media approach, she manages to attract a much larger audience - with a particular focus on Kiwi ex-pats living overseas, looking to return home one day. This approach has been so successful that she has received industry recognition and is the outright Winner of the 2017 REINZ Award for the Best Multi-Media Marketing Campaign.
Even in today's "fragile" market Linda is selling her listings, the majority of which are high-end, within their planned campaign time-frames, at prices in excess of anticipation. But Linda's real win is in how she connects and builds a real relationship with her clients, and works with her dedicated team to deliver a service that is second to none, ensuring that the entire process is as stress-free and effortless as possible. Through her Associate Jacquie McDonald, she even offers a comprehensive get-ready-for-market service tailor-made to offer you the help that you need and ensure that your property is presented at its very best.

We were looking to buy a house for a while, across a number of different areas. In some areas we felt that the agents were just running a numbers game. But in Devonport Linda and Jacquie took the time to understand what we were looking for and did more to engage with us. For example, they took us for coffee to explain the tender process and to understand what we were looking for. Even though we know the agents are acting for the seller, we didn't feel like we were being sold to and instead that they were trying to find a fit for both parties. This leaves us feeling very positive about our experience with Linda and Jacquie, and we would have a preference to use Bayleys in the future.

We met Linda and Jacquie a while ago when searching for a new house. We knew straight away that they were head and shoulders above all other agents that we have met. When we decided to list our house the decision to go with Linda and Jacquie was an easy one and we have not been disappointed. The market has been tough but Linda and Jacquie have worked tirelessly to find an unconditional buyer. They offer a service second to none and really care.

Dear Linda and Jacquie. Thanks again for the professionalism and the effort from both of you which led to the successful sale of our property, for a price we were very happy with. Right from the outset, your level of professionalism shone through, as well as your ability to understand our needs and keep the sales process moving forward which made it an easy decision to choose your team. We felt well guided in the choice of selling method, and tender was certainly the right approach for our particular home in this particular market. The fact that we had so many tenders submitted, with the majority well above the CV and market information website valuations is a testament to the sales process you followed and the effort and skills of both of you. Interestingly, in our selection process, your appraisal range was lower than both the other candidate agents, but the price you achieved exceeded all the upper appraisal ranges. All the best and thanks again
