Thanks for everything you have done with helping us to sell our property.
We appreciate it – all a rush in the end but we did send a txt as we boarded the plane.
Gary Kirk was certainly the right choice to work with Katie Seymour on the sale of our property. His rural background was an asset in selling my unique horticulture business. Together with Katie, they worked very hard on a five week auction programme that culminated with a sale on the day. His easy manner and professionalism were appreciated. I would endorse Gary without hesitation and thank him for efforts and will highly recommend the Bayleys team.
My wife, Jan, and I were fortunate to be approached by Gary Kirk who enquired as to whether some land we had ownership of was for sale. At that particular time it was not, but after some months of consideration we went back to Gary and discussed the possibility of selling the property.
From the outset Gary was straight forward, positive and inclusive. He told us exactly what he wanted, outlined his programme and within a short time a thoroughly professional presentation of our property was being marketed to New Zealand via signage, print and internet. At the outset I asked Gary to value the property as it was a little unusual in shape and the building upon it was a very large wool shed. He came back to us with a price that fitted very well within our expectations and once he learnt what they were, he did not hesitate to work extremely hard on our behalf to make them a reality.
The land was sold within eight weeks of going to market. That is testimony to his hard work, integrity and professionalism. We are very happy to recommend Gary Kirk as an agent to anyone looking for a thoroughly honest broker.
To Whom it may concern,
It was such a pleasure working with Gary Kirk on the sale of our property. He answered all of our questions and helped us to make the best decision to market our house. Taking on board our feelings while advising us on the best possible outcome.
We appreciate the time and effort that was provided to securing a sale which exceeded our expectations. Very much appreciated. The whole process with Gary has been very easy. We would not hesitate in recommending Gary to our friends and family. Thank you again for all your assistance in achieving this sale at a very satisfactory price. Your service on this transaction was excellent. We wish Gary all the best in the future. We would like to take the opportunity to thank the team at Bayleys Locations for the excellent job you did and for making the experience of selling our property a pleasurable one.
