WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY:
Well done. Will recommend you to anyone I know buying or selling!
I would just like to say a big thank you to Leah O’Driscoll from Bayleys Northland for selling our property in the Brynderwyns and doing it so well! Both professional and friendly she was very easy to work with, always keeping us updated and we very impressed by a quick sale. If I am ever buying or selling up North Leah will be on speed dial!
We first met Leah O’Driscoll when introduced to us by Catherine Stewart of Bayleys as the lifestyle expert. Our little lifestyle block was very precious to us which Leah grasped immediately and presented it to the market with stunningly beautiful photos and video. Thus began our marketing campaign and over the weeks which followed, Leah kept us fully informed as to progress. We had to go overseas only a month after marketing, but even then the reports kept coming. Leah even presented us with two offers, one of which we accepted via Skype, whilst sightseeing in Seattle! She continued to market our property, despite it being under contract, and managed to sell it a second time, at our asking price and with no conditions. Leah also organised our purchase of a new property and she really went the extra mile during the difficult negotiations. It was not unusual for us to call her several times a day, but she always responded promptly, positively and with a can do attitude.
Leah is not only a great agent, but she made us feel as if she really cared about us. We wish you all the best for the future Leah – you deserve it and we will not hesitate to recommend your services.

We would like to thank you so much for finding us our property in Matakohe. You were extremely easy to deal with, efficient and very approachable. When I had questions you were only a phone call away. You have a great understanding of property in this area and your down to earth approach and just general helpfulness were impressive. We have settled into our new home and are loving it so won't be selling anytime soon - but will definitely recommend you and your service to others.

Leah O’Driscoll was pleasant and extremely helpful with the many questions we asked. She made the transition to a new home much less stressful. We felt she went the extra mile to ensure we were advised of many aspects of the location, even trivial questions were dealt with promptly and efficiently she even checked in recently to see if everything was well.

It was truly a wonderful experience working with Leah and Catherine in achieving the successful sale of our property. They came in day one and suggested to do this, this and this… we got straight onto it and a short time after had the property pretty close to ready. Listed with them, not even on the internet and basically sold it three days later for $50K more than expected.
P & V Holdem
We had come to know Leah following a recommendation by our friend and Leah’s colleague Catherine Stewart at Bayleys, who deals only with rural and lifestyle properties. Leah’s approach to marketing both properties was very thorough and she managed to present offers that were above expectation in both cases. This was at a time when sales in the region were generally still tardy. We have enjoyed her professional approach and excellentcommunication over that time, which resulted in smooth transfers of ownership and both happy vendor and new owners. She even went well above her call of duty when an unexpected problem with one of these ex-rentals presented itself, in bringing reason and calm to the cable. I cannot stress highly anough how hard and diligently she laboured to get the job done, and now that the dust has settled I can state with absolute surety that we will engage the services of one whom I would like to think has become a friend, at the next available opportunity. I have owned and sold a great many properties throughout my time and I recommend Leah to get the job done hands down in her area of expertise. Whether your are buying or selling, please do not hesitate in calling me to verify just how good our experience has been as I will gladly rave to you myself. Thank you Leah.
At our first meeting, I found Leah to be very easy to speak to, pleasant and professional in explaining the processes needed to sell our section. Even though we knew each other only a few months I found Leah to be reliable, hard working and willing to go that ‘extra mile’ to ensure our section was well presented for the sales market. Leah assisted by locating Contracting Companies to clear the section to enable a better picture to present to the market. Her hard work ensured I was always kept up to date via e-mail which made the sale of our section stress free. I would certainly recommend Leah’s services in any future endeavours she may pursue.
