Dealing with Jeremy and Richard was always a pleasure, during the sale of our lifestyle property. Their no pressure approach made the whole experience stress free. The presentation of our property to the market was excellent and we really appreciated their attention to detail. Their positive attitude, professionalism, and perseverance really made the difference.

After meeting several agents from several companies, we decided to work with Jeremy Gould and Richard Innes from Bayleys, to sell our home. We were kept well informed of market feedback as the sale process evolved. Communication was always easy, and very much a two way process. When the time came for the hard negotiations, there was advice but no pressure. We feel confident in providing a testimonial to Jeremy and Richard, in knowing that their level of service and customer support was always to our expectations.

Richard and Jeremy were a great sales and marketing team, together with Emma back at the office keeping us informed of progress at every stage. This was the fifth house we had sold in Christchurch over the years using a variety of agents – without a doubt Bayleys provided the best service and most pleasant interaction.

Thank you both, Richard and Jeremy for your help in selling 'Tidelands' and for finding such a nice couple to buy it!! It was a difficult place to sell I know but we got there. I did appreciate your 'follow ups' after each viewing, thank you. PS I love my new house.

We would like to thank Richard Innes and Jeremy Gould at Bayleys Real Estate for the excellent service we received during the sale of our two properties. The whole process was friendly and professional, exceeding our expectations. We have no hesitation in recommending them to others wanting to buy or sell real estate.

Richard and Jeremy are a fantastic team! They are friendly and knowledgeable. They provided us with sound advice on selling our home and made a stressful time easier. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who is considering selling their home.

We chose Richard to sell our property at Little River because, as agent when we bought it, he impressed us with his helpfulness & knowledge of the property.  His refreshing can-do attitude took the stress out of the sale for us. Working in tandem with Jeremy meant that there was always someone available to answer our queries. Two agents for the price of one can't be bad!  We wouldn't hesitate to employ this team again in the future.

We met Richard Innes in April 2012 when he listed our property in Diamond Harbour. We had been unsuccessful in our attempts to sell with a different Real Estate company for the previous four months and were sceptical about continuing to try and sell as winter was approaching, as this is not usually considered the best time to be selling a house. Richard listened sympathetically to all our concerns and gave helpful constructive advice as well as acknowledging our concerns. He assured us that he would keep us fully informed of all relevant information about potential buyers and despite us now living in Auckland communication with Richard has never been an issue, we have always felt fully informed and he promptly returns any phone messages.

From the very first contact with Richard everything about the selling process has been a pleasure, his attention to detail and pleasant helpful manor has alleviated all anxieties and we can unreservedly say that he has done everything possible to ease the process of selling our property. 

These are not easy times for selling real Estate in Canterbury; buyers and sellers can come across as nervous and demanding, but despite these challenging times, Richard’s customer services skills mean that one feels that nothing is too much trouble. He even went to the extent of personally sorting out a potential roofing problem for us, making a trip to the dump on our behalf and packing up and posting a cupboard and some curtains that had been left in the house. 

We cannot recommend Richard Innes more highly. It has been a pleasure to do business through him and we wish him all the best for the future.
