Having been involved in business for the greater part of my adult life and having spent many years buying and selling real estate property from real estate agents, the move into real estate selling was not too much of a leap.
Over the years I have developed a reputation as a hardworking, knowledgeable and trustworthy agent that performs well in a very competitive industry. Often setting price records in areas and delivering those prices consistently.
The vital ingredient is of course a willingness to listen and understand. We all have reasons for doing. it is my job to discover that reason and understand the great trust and faith put in me by every one of my vendors and buyers.
We were delighted with the manner in which Stephen went about the successful sale of my late sisters house in Trentham. He responded quickly our first call, even though it was a Saturday afternoon, and thereafter the communication was regular and he kept us up to date with what was happening. We found Stephen easy to talk to and with a good professional understanding of all the issues involved in marketing our house. We had such a good relationship that we felt entirely comfortable leaving the sale isn his hands once we returned to our home in Christchurch, and we trusted him and felt that his sales strategy was sound. Stephens regular communication kept us well informed about the open homes and the responses of those who viewed the home. Stephen achieved a great result for us, and we would thoroughly recommend him.
Before approaching Stephen, we had asked people in the area with considerable knowledge of the local property market for recommendations, and Stephen had been recommended by two people whose opinions we respect. The best recommendation we can give him is that if we were buying or selling in the area again, we would go straight to Stephen without the slightest doubt or concern.

My family chose Bev Harris and Stephen Taylor from Bayleys to market our parent’s property because they both had a lovely non pressured, warm and sincere approach that we felt our elderly parents would relate to. We weren’t disappointed.
Bev and Stephen were totally professional and went beyond the call of duty – they organized the Stager, who did an amazing job for a very reasonable fee; they were even prepared to mow the lawns themselves and put out the wheelie bin during the dreadful lockdown period that we were so unfortunate to get caught up in. They kept us up to date with all developments via phone and email, helped us sell surplus furniture and incidentals to the purchasers and best of all, their marketing and commission fees were considerably less than other companies.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Bev and Stephen to anyone wishing to market their property.
Stephen and Bev from Bayleys Real Estate were professional from the start. They came up with a great marketing plan and communicated with us clearly the steps and process of selling our house. Took a lot of stress out of the process, and a big weight off our shoulders.
With all this we had a lot of interest from the get go in the property and had a lot of groups come through the house and offers within the first week of listing the property, even after this Stephen went above and beyond to make sure both parties were happy.
We would highly recommend Stephen and Bev to anyone wanting to sell their property, as they just made the whole process so simple!
