We recently sold our family home, as we were retiring to another district. We have bought and sold multiple houses across the country, and I can say that never have we had such exceptional service from a real estate agent as we experienced with John. John was an excellent communicator who kept in touch with us every step of the way, and we never felt like we were neglected or not a priority to him. He was friendly, caring, and reliable. Not only was he a great guy to deal with, he fulfilled his job brief by getting us an excellent price for our house - three times! I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to sell their property.

Wanting to sell your house?? I highly recommend John Phillips Bayleys Canterbury. I started by following his upfront advice beginning with preparing my house with EQC repairs, advice for fixing indoor and outdoor maintenance issues to presenting our front and back yard and staging ideas. John was honest, reliable and available when I needed to discuss any problems. He went above and beyond any expectations even helping me to mow my lawns to prepare for the big Open Day!! I got the immediate results I wanted and to see the SOLD sign was an exciting day. I will always appreciate Johns genuine kindness, professionalism and expertise in real estate!!
Thank You John!!!!

We decided to put our properties on the market at the same time, and John did an excellent job from day one. They were two quite different properties but John was able to speak confidently about where they fit in the market.
John was very proficient in giving us all the information we needed in deciding the best way to sell the houses and make informed decisions along the way.
John was very professional and friendly and kept up great communication (even when we were overseas for part of the time) which led to the entire process running very smoothly and stress free.
And above all, we were extremely pleased with the sale prices of our houses, especially the one that sold for far more than we had ever imagined.
We would highly recommend John to anyone selling a house.

Having John sell our house made the process very clear and straight forward. John was very knowledgeable and well prepared. The communication was great and we were kept very well informed at all times. Throughout the process John made himself available to us as well as all potential buyers and was very prompt in responding to all queries. He has presented us with all information he had available to help us make an informed decision. We were very fortunate to have had John helping us with selling our home and we would not hesitate to recommend him.
Thank you very much for your service,
Carmen and Mihai
I am happy to say how satisfied I was with the way you handled the sale of my house in Burbank Drive. I especially appreciated the way you helped us prepare the property for sale steering us forward while remaining sensitive to our desires. The sale although it felt took forever was in reality very quick and has helped me to put that period behind me and get on with my future.
Thank you and best wishes for your future sales.
I would like to thank you John for the incredible service and support you have provided to us during this purchase.
From arranging our visit to inspect the laundry to meeting the cleaner for us on Monday, arranging for new locks on the garage, guiding Jack with his pre-inspection responsibilities and being at the end of the phone whenever we needed to check on or arrange something.
I would have NO hesitation recommending you to anyone who was looking to buy or sell a property in the area. If we were to look for a property for Jason and I you will be our first call.
Thank you again for the amazing and highly professional level of service you provided to us all over the past few months, it has made what can often be a highly stressful time, quite the opposite experience.
Warm Regards, Jo Kendall
John did a great job selling our house, he knew what we wanted and went all out to get it for us in a very professional manner at all times.
Very careful not to inconvenience us when bringing buyers through and kept us informed throughout.
We would recommend him to anyone, infact have done so already.
A huge thank you John,
Joan & Murray.
I had a good experience of dealing with John phillips when my parents purchased the property at 44 Burbank drive. He is very professional on assisting us with the information of the property and liaising with the vendor. As an agent He always tried his best to meet our enquires, arranged us several visitings of the property and always be friendly, helpfully, and patiently. His response to all my enquires are always prompt and efficient, and always try his best find a good solution for us. My parents and myself are much appreciated with his assistance and professional working attitude.This is a good house purchasing experience of my whole family.
Many many thanks to John :-)
Kind regards, Jennifer Yang Cao
It was an absolute pleasure to work with John in buying my first home. John made the process of buying my house very easy by being on call 24/7 , answering all my questions in a way I could understand and even picking up paper work from my home to help me out. If you are lucky enough to work with John, your experience will be a lovely one as he's a person who likes to see you succeed. Many thanks John.
