“Working with Lorraine was a true partnership where she worked closely with us throughout the process with an outstanding advertising campaign attracting maximum exposure, providing expert advice and professional representation of our property.

“Lorraine was recommended to us as a very proactive and professional real estate agent. She certainly lived up to her reputation. While the Auckland property market continues to perform well, selling at a good price is not as straightforward as might appear. Lorraine’s deep knowledge of the market ensured that we pitched our sale campaign exactly right, to optimise the chance for a good sale.
Lorraine managed the whole campaign admirably and with thorough professionalism. She demonstrated a passion for her work. On auction day, we had very good interest in the property. We attribute this to the careful and deliberate marketing and buyer liaison which Lorraine undertook. In the end, the result spoke for itself as we obtained an outcome that certainly exceeded our expectations.”

“When we marketed our property we quickly got down to a short list of two excellent agents. We chose to run with Lorraine because of her personal style and her reputation for looking after her clients. Lorraine made it her goal early on to understand us and what our needs would be throughout the process and what the right level of contact was for us. She ran an excellent campaign and was 100% committed and hands-on from day one, unlike some other agents who often delegate to their assistants. She has a relaxed, warm and professional manner which really works for us. If you want an agent who actually works to earn their commission and will be there for you from the start to the end then Lorraine Young is your lady.”

“Upon engagement Lorraine displayed her ability to pull together a great campaign while keeping us fully informed throughout. Her attention to detail, from timing of the auction, marketing the property, staging requirements and re-enforcing the need to capture a broad client base, and her broad network were major factors in delivering a result that far exceeded our expectations.
Her commitment was unwaivering, even when we were all pushed to meet client deadlines Lorraine was the ultimate professional, keeping in constant communication and providing the benefit of her experience throughout the process. At one stage Lorraine was still making phone calls at 10.30pm one night to help us achieve our result.
If you are looking for personable, professional, punctual and profitable real estate service, we would highly and unreservedly recommend Lorraine to any potential house sellers.
Lorraine, thank you from the bottom of our heart for a result we believe could only have achieved through you. We have already and will definitely continue to recommend you to our friends, family and work associates. Best Regards and we look forward to working with you again.”
