“For us, choosing Jess to market and sell our house was an easy decision. From the second Jess sat down to talk us through the process her warmth, charm, knowledge and professional demeanour shone through. We knew we were in good hands. Jess was calm and reassuring and went above and beyond to make sure we were well informed and comfortable throughout the whole process. She guided us to be patient and calm with the campaign which ended with a fabulous result. We are thrilled and can now move on to a fresh start. Thanks Jess, you have been fabulous to work with.”

“We write this email in support of Jess Thomas who exceeded our expectations in the marketing and eventual sale of our property at 9 Safe Street Blenheim. We first meet Jess at an “open home” late last year when we were seeking to buy a property of a more modern vintage. We were impressed with Jess’s enquiring thoughtful questions as she sought to visualise the sort of property we had in mind. This was quite complex in that we had slightly differing views on what it was were seeking.
After viewing a number of homes, we were able to tighten up on type of property we were looking for.
While eventually we purchased a property through a competitor agency, we had become very respectful of Jess’s capabilities and had no hesitation in asking her and Bayleys to act on an exclusive basis in the selling of our property. Jess excelled in coming up with a marketing / promotional plan and assisting us to present the property to the potential purchasers in the best manner possible. It was a pleasure to work with Jess and the Bayleys team as they worked to attract the best possible value. Her promotional work with the photographer captured the property to the best advantage and generated considerable buyer interest. Nine people prior to the first open home, 27 during the first weekend of open homes and continuing interest throughout the sales campaign.
In our opinion Jess went many extra yards, even bringing a large vase and flowers. Peter can be rather sceptical about real estate agents but was completely won over with Jess’s very professional approach. Her integrity and honesty in all the dealings was 1st Class.”

"We really enjoyed working with Jess. Her attention to detail and friendly approach made selling our house an enjoyable experience. We couldn't be happier with the result!”

“Jess Thomas rang me to follow up after an open home viewing. I wasn’t working with an agent at all. We discussed what I was looking for ever so briefly. Few days later she called to say there was one coming up that I might like. Very professional, honest, caring and excited for me when I bought the house she’d told me about. Nothing was ever a problem, very supportive, and a real pleasure to deal with. Thanks Jess!”
“I couldn’t speak more highly of Jess’s skills as a real estate agent, she communicates exceptionally well and is great with follow up so that we were always kept in the loop. I would be happy to discuss with any would-be lister who wanted confirmation that Jess is a person you should work with if you want to get the best outcome for your home sale.”
Sheryl and Phillip
“Brendon and I were just saying how thankful we were that we had such a helpful agent helping us with this purchase. Jess made it very easy to purchase a property in another region and we are very grateful for all that she did for us. We have dealt with quite a few agents over the past years, and none have come close to the service Jess provided us - so a huge THANK YOU from us to Jess!”
Gina and Brendon
"Jess a special thanks for all the work and time you spent with us over our house sale. You have always kept us informed and up-front and honest which we so appreciated and a wonderful asset in your profession. Bayleys have a shining star in their company."
