Paula and David Simpson, Triton Complex Properties Ltd
"Stephen is a true professional in every sense; he gives options and looks out for you regarding the sale of your property to ensure you are able to get the best deal. He was superb in brokering our own private sale which broke down .... not only did he retrieve it but he managed to secure a further $25K on the purchase price and sold within one month of listing and just before Christmas. Well done!"
We are delighted with the result of the auction of our Takapuna veterinary clinic. We chose Stephen after a recommendation from a friend, and we were very happy with the efforts he put in, and his communication with us in the four weeks leading up to the auction. At all times his approach was friendly and professional and was keen to involve both of us in decisions that needed to be made at each stage. The property was not an easy one to sell as its true value lay in its land position, but an extended lease period meant that this could have been overseen. Stephen managed to convince several potential purchasers of the true value of the site, and the fact that four of these were active bidders at the auction had its effect on the eventual price achieved. While we are unlikely to be in a position to sell a commercial property again, we would definitely choose Stephen to act as our agent if a future sale did arise.
John and Lyn Potter
We were delighted with the result achieved by Stephen Scott in selling our Takapuna property. Charged with the task of marketing our unique property, a combination of residential and commercial buildings, Stephen left no stone unturned in the search for suitable buyers. He remained in constant communication throughout the entire process, informing us of all developments and levels of interest, and worked closely with potential purchasers. Stephen displayed a strong desire to sell the property for us and his work was borne out by a successful sale.
We would not hesitate to use Stephen again and would certainly recommend him to others.
Donald and Leigh Melville
Stephen came highly recommended to us and we were not let down. We presented Stephen with the task of selling a fully consented land holding in Kaukapakapa and we were thrilled with the results. His core strength is his professionalism and the regular marketing reports were testament to the efforts he was putting in. The result speaks for itself and we were more than happy with the final outcome. We would not hesitate in using Stephen again.
Greer C Wilcox, Trustee, Wilcox Family Trust
"We are pleased to have chosen Stephen to market and achieve the successful sale of our Commercial Property in Forrest Hill late in 2012. We found him easy to deal with and most professional. His marketing reports were diligently prepared and presented to us throughout the campaign, always on time. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to other commercial Real estate owners considering selling a property. We would definitely use Stephen again, should the opportunity arise
Richard Beckett, Director, Apollo Properties Ltd
"Bayleys lease proposal (spearheaded by Stephen Scott) was chosen as sole agent from 4 North Shore Commercial Real Estate companies to lease our road front commercial premises in Apollo Drive Mairangi Bay. In a very competitive market environment Stephen's proposal showed creative input with some novel signage ideas to attract passersby. Although Stephen found us a quality tenant in the current crowded 'for lease' market we chose to sell our property finally. His input was always professional, competent, honest and communicative and I would not hesitate to recommend his talents to prospective clients".
Jonathan Davies, Managing Director, Generation Wealth Management Limited
We were extremely impressed by the way in which Stephen handled the leasing of our new premises on the North Shore. With our limited knowledge of the area and the current abundance of office premises Stephen was adept at listening to our needs and then identifying exactly the location that would meet them.
The offices we secured involved negotiating a complex lease assignment with several parties involved, Stephen managed the process seamlessly and competently keeping us informed all the way. We liked his relaxed yet professional approach to the whole process and will have no hesitation in recommending and using his services again in the future.
Ron Shannon, Managing Director of Lawford Prop
The dedication, tenacity and advice given by Stephen Scott regarding the sale campaign of an office building in Rosedale was directly related to the successful outcome of this campaign when the building was sold. I found Stephen to be one of the most innovative Agents I have ever dealt with and would not hesitate to use him again.
Lyle Irwin - International Contact Partner, RSM Prince
Stephen proved to be an extremely worthy choice by our tenants to find replacement for the premises they leased from us here in the heart of Albany.
In no time at all he had found an interested party and promptly got negotiations underway. These concluded quickly to the entire satisfaction of all concerned which in the current environment was no easy task. We are extremely pleased with the outcome and look forward to our new tenants joining us in Albany.
Thank you Stephen for the professional job done, the manner and efficiency within which you handled negotiations and achieved the desired result... a job very well done indeed.
Guy McLean, Head of Corporate Business, Westpac New Zealand
The thing we really liked about Stephen was his ability to drive the sales process rather than sit and wait for things to happen. In addition he was extremely professional and kept us fully informed along the way.
Jaime Robson, Managing Director, DeployTech
Stephen provided us with outstanding advice and guidance when looking to upgrade our premises. The selection of properties he showed us were thoughtfully chosen and each met our requirement perfectly. I look forward to working with Stephen again in the future.
Martin Wiltshire, Director, David Reid Homes
With very specific requirements relating to size and location, Stephen provided me with the solution I was after with great effectiveness. I found his professionalism and efficiency to be first class which translated into the whole process being made easy for me. I would have no hesitation in using Stephen again.
Ray Bush, Sandy Park Investments
We found your services were above reproach and everything you promised was delivered on time. Your ability to pull a deal together was most impressive.
Tony Gibson, Gibson Consultants
I was very pleased with your professional and energetic approach in handling the successful sale of my office property.
In particular the market research was very helpful in setting an appropriate reserve, which in the end was less than 1% different from the final selling price.
I also think you did a great job in bringing potential bidders out and getting them to attend the auction. This was the key element of the successful auction. No bidders equals no sale! So having four keen bidders set the stage for a great price on the day.
Steve Shaw, Demon Drinks Ltd
We would like to express our satisfaction of Stephen Scott, working to achieve a good result in our current tenancy in the Wairau Valley. It was far from straight forward arrangement, being a sub lease situation.
Stephen was successful in showing us all options available at the time, and helping eliminate the least favored. He has displayed a high level of communication and remained proactive throughout the whole process.
We can recommend Stephen as a hardworking and conscientious agent and shall be pleased to stay in contact with him for further dealings.
Dave Tippett, Finstar Management Ltd
Stephen assisted us in acquiring new premises for a client. He was extremely efficient in the identifying and subsequently culling out the least favourable properties. Once we had narrowed down the best options the negotiations went smoothly and all the information and feedback provided by Stephen was accurate. We felt completely like we were not being played or wound-up, as is often the case in property dealings. We would certainly recommend Stephen to other clients. Good Luck.
Brett Norrish, NZ Dental Laboratories
We found Stephen to be a very motivated agent who always communicated with us. He was extremely professional and helpful and we would thoroughly recommend him to anyone.
David Whyte, CEO, Ginger Group
We handed Stephen a well-nigh impossible task of getting us out of CBD Auckland over to Takapuna at nil cost. The Auckland office market was considerably lower than the current lease, and locating a sub-tenant, as well as funding suitable premises in Takapuna at the right price, was very challenging. Despite the obvious obstacles, Stephen’s patient and very professional approach achieved the impossible for which we are all very grateful. In a very competitive market, Stephen stands out as a highly skilled practitioner with a focus and integrity which reflects across all his actions and efforts on our behalf. Thanks Stephen – very much appreciated.
