Some people have property in their blood and Paula Halford is one of them. She’s had a love of homes since working in her father’s interiors company which launched her on a lifetime path of buying and selling properties of her own accord. Now, it is watching others fall in love with a home and helping them own it that drives Paula.
Paula is part of a duo with Ruth Inwood which allows her to offer full-time services to her clients, as well as juggle family time! Family is everything to Paula who believes “Home is where the heart is” – one of the reasons she enjoys bringing people together with the home of their dreams.
Paula genuinely enjoys meeting new people and her enthusiasm spills over into creating trusting, long-term relationships. She is a fantastic listener which allows her to get a good feel of her customers’ needs, something that is vital for a successful campaign. For Paula, the Bayleys brand is synonymous with trust, having a selection of amazing specialists to deal with and getting the best results at the end of the day.
As a duo, Paula and Ruth provide the ultimate team of property specialists to assist in preparing and marketing a property for sale in the most time and cost-efficient way with little stress for the vendor. They work relentlessly to engage prospective vendors / buyers with attention-grabbing marketing campaigns being ahead particularly in the digital arena.
Paula’s instinct for property and knowledge of the local market has seen her make in excess of 20 million dollars’ worth of sales in the last year. An ironman competitor, she is extremely goal driven for her clients bringing a blend of drive and excellent project management to every campaign.
I have been working with Paula on the purchase of a property in the BeachCroft development in Onehunga and subsequently engaged her for the purpose of selling my property in Mt Wellington.
I have found Paula to be extremely hardworking, responsive and thorough. No question or query was ever too much trouble for her and she always responded quickly with an answer or to respond that she would find out and come back to me…which she always did.
I have friends who have worked with Paula also and had the same experience. She is conscientious, professional and works very hard for her customers.
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Paula to any prospective vendor/purchaser and would definitely engage her again should I consider selling any future properties.
I would like to thank the team at Bayleys for successfully marketing and selling my home recently.
The agents, Hayley & Paula were very professional and explained the selling process clearly.
They gave me lots of encouragement as I finished renovating my home and supported my wish to stage it myself, offering good ideas.
Hayley kept regular contact with me and gave detailed feedback after each open home.
Both agents have excellent communication skills and I found them encouraging and supportive throughout the process. They were genuinely enthusiastic about my home and communicated this to prospective buyers, resulting in an excellent outcome at auction.
We wish to thank Paula Halford for her help and expertise with the purchase of an apartment at the Beachcroft Residences, Onehunga.
Paula has impressed us with her passion and enthusiasm for the Beachcroft development and this has reassured us and made our decision to buy from the plan much easier as the whole process is a new experience for us after being in the same home for 32 years. Throughout the process, Paula helped us feel at ease and took the time to make sure we were happy with everything. We feel she has our best interests at heart. Paula is very personable, approachable, caring and a genuine person and these qualities made our first experience into buying an apartment much more reassuring than it might have been. It has been a real pleasure to meet Paula and we hope the relationship will continue. We cannot speak highly enough of Paula and we look forward to being able to use her professional advice when we need to sell our current home in a couple of years.
