"Galina and John are amazing. Their communication is transparent and they keep you informed every step of the way. They didn’t just sell our house, they ensured we did what we could to navigate a tricky situation to purchase our dream house in the same week. We could not recommend their service enough. Thank you John and Galina ❤️"
Adrian and Lynne Balle
"We asked John and Galina to market what we thought was quite a difficult property with which we had had no luck ourselves. They were fantastic in every respect. I would say that they are the most professional, Real Estate agents that we have dealt with in 30 years and produced a result over and above our expectations. Thanks guys”
Just wanted to thank you again for all you did to bring about the very successful sale of my property. I really appreciated your experience and guidance throughout the process which made it so much easier.
Being away from Auckland for most of the Open Homes I was able to confidently leave the house in your care knowing that you would ensure it was kept secure.
Your communication with me was excellent too as you always kept me fully informed of the viewers and potential buyers as well as responding immediately to any contact from me.
I would warmly recommend you to other people considering selling or buying property as I certainly felt that you were intent on achieving the best possible outcome all round.

David and Debbie Bennett
"It was a pleasure working with you Galina. You did an excellent and professional
job for both of the mothers, and we were all very pleased with the outcomes. Your advice on the process was sound in both cases, and you managed it all in a quiet but reassuring way, which was exactly what was needed.
I know that we’d be very happy to act as a referee for you should
you require it in the future".
