"I felt confident in Linda and Paula from the start as they communicated extremely well and were consistently giving me regular updates or just checking in. They were extremely efficient and knowledgeable and made the process very clear and easy to understand. Linda and Paula were professional, friendly and respectful to my family.
I credit our sale to their hard work and the massive effort they put into showing prospective buyers our property – I have no hesitation in recommending this dynamic duo and wish them all the very best in their careers."

“We recently listed and sold a home in Winton with Bayleys agents Linda Riordan and Paula Johnstone. New AML laws and a complicated ownership structure were no obstacle, and both agents acted promptly and professionally throughout the process. The property sold very quickly and as vendors we could not fault these guys performance“
“Hi Linda and Paula (aka the A team),
We would like to thank you both so much for your enthusiasm, hard work and professionalism you showed in selling our property. Nothing was ever too much trouble. You made the process an absolute pleasure and now we are able to move onto our next venture and for that we thank you so much. Ladies you are both an asset to Bayleys and I'm sure you will do very well in the future. We will have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends.”

"I would just like to say what a fabulous Job Linda and Jamie done when they got the listing for our property. They both worked really hard together getting a great result when it was sold at auction. There feedback and meeting each week to keep us up to date with the open homes was very useful and they stayed very positive each week. Linda was very helpful going way beyond the real estate agent by helping me prepare the house for the first open home. The night that they put on inviting people to view and a good social evening with a wine and cracker was a great hit as well good idea something different. I would just like to say thank you ladies for everything and I would highly recommend either Linda or Jamie. I wish them the very best in the future."
“10/10! Linda and Paula are awesome to deal with. Even with all my queries on different things I never felt I was a hindrance. I would totally come back to these girls again or at the very least recommend them. Thank you Linda and Paula of Winton Bayleys!!!”
“10/10! We had Linda and Paula sell a house for us, we could not have asked for more. They were very committed and doid everything they could to make a sale. We felt like we were dealing with friends not agents.”
"I always knew in my mind if I were to sell a property Bayleys would be my choice of agent. Linda Riordan from the Winton office excelled my expectations for service. She was very professional in her approach but also fun. My BNZ Bank building on the Main street of Winton sold very quickly to Auckland buyers. Paula and Hayden were also very supportive making the transaction very simple.
Just another reason why I love being part of the Winton Community. "
"We have been totally impressed with the way Linda & Paula matched a buyer with our property. Their communications have been top rate & we have no hesitation in recommending the Bayleys Winton team of Paula & Linda. Thank You girls."
