Theresa Fincham’s results are characterised by her capacity to stand by her ideals and express them with passion and vision. Theresa’s commitment is evident in all that she does. Her ability to visualize the goal and consequently attract successful outcomes is a strength many admire in her. She has developed an extremely wide referral base with her satisfied clients over the past 20 years in Real Estate.
Growing up in a large farming family in the Bay of Plenty, Theresa learnt early in life the importance of working cooperatively within her community. She is scrupulously honest and her “I can do anything” attitude has won her the respect and admiration of not only her real estate peers, but also from the neighbourhood she serves in.
In 2001, following a successful career working in the exacting world of payroll and administration, where deadlines, accuracy and confidentiality are very important, Theresa was encouraged to move into the real estate sales industry. Her network of contacts, deep seated desire to help people with their property needs and an ability of turning creative marketing ideas into reality were to be her key assets – enabling her to “hit the ground running”. A string of accolades followed. She has established a local reputation as an adaptable, influential and incredibly intuitive real estate professional.
Service in a wider sense is important to Theresa, and she has been a member of her local Rotary Club for many years, holding office at most levels in the club including President for 2010 -2011. Inducted as a Paul Harris Rotary Fellow, Theresa was awarded the prestigious gold medal and a citation for her services to both international projects and the local community.
Additionally and equally important is her involvement in the public speaking and debating. Theresa has amassed 300 public speaking hours with ITC (International Training in Communications), an organization that promotes the fostering and development of public speaking and debating through clubs scattered across the globe. Theresa is an accomplished speaker and debater who uses this skill in the course of her real estate work – where coherent verbal communications with both the sellers and buyers is critical.
Theresa enjoys line dancing each week, skiing in the winter and reading a good book. Her three children grown up and now five grandchildren.

Testimonial to a person deserving recommendation. I have engaged help from Theresa Fincham to market and sell two properties over the last 16 months. One was a rental property that we had owned for 44 years and the other being our family home in Liverpool St, Epsom. I was very pleased with the prices achieved for each property. I experienced a very high degree of professionalism, and attention to detail, and I would not only recommend her services as an agent, but I would certainly engage her again.
I am writing to advise the manager about my great satisfaction for the high standard and fantastic service and quality. I would like to express my special gratitude to Theresa Fincham. I meet Theresa by chance outside the Real Estate Agency, while looking at the photos of houses for sale displayed in the window at the point when the idea of selling my home was very vague. A kind face with a tender voice approached me offering assistance and a certain quality I couldn’t forget. When my home was ready to be sold I asked Theresa, plus two other agents, for an appraisal as I was told 3 different agents is a good idea. Theresa Fincham was the agent I chose. She out shone the other agents with her qualities as a Real Estate Agent. I soon put her to the test. Her knowledge in the industry, her standard and confidences, consideration and trustworthy just shined. In her quiet manner, she appeals to vendors and buyers alike, and her negotiation and amazing debating skill quickly came into action very quickly. As a result she achieves the best deals and brings satisfaction to both parties on Tender date. Throughout the sale for me it could have been a rather complicated and stressful period of having to sell my precious home and buying, with my health problems. Theresa was my guardian angel, providing reliable information and suggestions concerning all issues that came along. She got a price that was $50,000 higher than any other agent mentioned. She also for example advised me of good furniture removal people, storage, insurance tips, improvements for my new home, repairs and heating. Long after the settlement period she would ring up (and does so to date) to check that everything is all right. Soon one realises that Theresa is a friend, the type that you do not talk about with others, but the one that you talk to about any issue in confidence. I am happy with her work in selling my property and purchasing a new place. I do not think that I have been the only lucky one to have her as the Real Estate Agent and much more. I am saying a big thank you to Theresa on behalf myself and all my family.

A letter of appreciation from us both for the professional manner in which you sold our home at 253B Hillsborough Road, Hillsborough, Auckland. Your expert, and practised manner, made us feel confident from the start. Even though it took longer than we all expected, a pleasing result was achieved. We had confidence in you, and your reassuring calls letting us know how the market was performing, certainly helped along the way. We certainly appreciate your help during the sale procedure, as we were out of the Country at the time. We recommend you to anyone requiring a thoroughly professional, helpful and attentive Real Estate Agent. Regards

Earlier this year we had the pleasure enlisting the professional services of Theresa to market and sell our home. We found her extremely easy to communicate with and her low-key friendly approach was appreciated. Throughout the whole process she kept us well informed and at all times showed a high level of professionalism, honesty and integrity. A neighbour recommended Theresa to us and we would not hesitate to recommend her to others. We know that she would endeavour to work in their bets interests too. We wish her further success and would take this opportunity to offer our sincere thanks for the selling of our special home.

Theresa was our real estate agent when we were looking to sell our house in July. With grown up children getting under our feet we finally found our dream home and decided it was time to sell the family home and move on. Theresa has originally sold us this house 4 years earlier. We wanted to remain loyal but even after we had shopped around various real estate agents in the local area, Theresa still offered us the best deal and she listened to what we wanted. We did not want to go to auction but wanted to get the best price possible. Theresa kept us informed every step of the way which took a lot of the pressure off us at this stressful time. We were busy getting our children settled into their first homes and helping them adjust to their lives without parents picking up the slack. With extensive advertising and a professional brochure widely distributed we had over 150 people through the open homes. We were impressed with the professionalism shown by Theresa and the quick response she made to our queries and requests. We were happy with the price we got for our home and pleased with the speed and efficiency of the settlement. I would not hesitate to call upon Theresa’s services again if we should ever need them and highly recommend her to anyone thinking of selling or buying.
My wife and I met Theresa at an open home Theresa had listed across the road from us. We asked her to appraise our house which we wanted to sell. She came over straight after her open home and gave our property the once over. She came back the next day and did a full appraisal, and we then listed our home with her. Theresa did a grand job selling our home, all done and dusted in three weeks. Theresa was efficient, charming and went further than the extra mile. She is a real professional with load of experience in the real estate game. If you want to sell your house or buy a new one, we heartily recommend Theresa Fincham.
Dear Theresa, I just have to write accolades about you and my experience with you as a Real Estate Agent and how I watched you over time and marveled at your dedication, persistence, and how so many times you went out of your way to make things work. Most would have given up but you never did. Your total dedication every Sunday, with your prep work and even a tidy where necessary was beyond the realms of what you needed to do. I don't know that many an agent would bring her own water blaster to property and actually water blast to help along with the presentation. Even to the end when you did sell property after it was going to be a Church, a Restaurant, a Temple, a Kindergarten etc etc. as you said, a difficult property, Plumley Estate 11,829m2 to sell, as in it could be so many things - and you even went to Council with plans for kindergarten Church etc - incredible. You even gave a plan of thoughts and ideas to the restaurant owner - amazing!! You constantly followed through and your feed back was amazing!! I just wanted to thank you so very much for all that you did, the extra mile you took and that nothing was ever a problem for you. Your helpfulness and kindness in what was a stressful situation for me will never ever be forgotten. You truly are amazing Theresa, a rarity and one out of the box!! I do hope your future is fruitful and whoever has you in their employ will be the luckiest company in the world. Go well Theresa, I will never forget how hard you worked - even hammering and straightening the fence line - and at the end - you helped clean up our property for new owners - ( I am sure this was beyond the realms of your duty) amazing lady that you are. If you give my mobile number to any Vendor I would gladly give a verbal referral Lots of love and thoughts to you Theresa.
