“I was very lucky to find Cherry and Steve through a friend who was also using them to sell her property.  It was a big decision for me to put my house up for sale and I was dreading it but they have lots of experience and guided me through the process without any problems.  They were very easy to deal with and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone who is thinking of selling. You will appreciate their honesty and enjoy their company. They are a great team.”  

Caryn B, Kohimarama


“We engaged Cherry and Steve to sell our home in Waiatarua Road in Remuera and found them to be an absolute joy to deal with.  Their professionalism and experience made what can be a stressful process a pleasure.  Their communication and willingness to listen to our needs and sell our home within only three weeks means we have no hesitation in recommending them to any would-be sellers or buyers.”  

Caroline C, Remuera


“A special thank you to both Cherry and Steve for the way in which they marketed our property, through to a successful sale at auction. Their realistic guidance in an uncertain market in regard to price expectation, with regular feedback about potential buyers, gave us confidence in the process that led to a very successful outcome.  We were impressed with both Cherry’s and Steve’s professionalism. They both have excellent communication skills. They were always available to answer our questions and to offer sound advice.  Cherry’s attention to detail was one of her strengths which included providing flowers, vases and making little adjustments to each room thus presenting our house in the best possible light. Cherry exudes passion for her job.  Steve’s availability for private viewing, his reassuring manner plus his conduct with the buyer during the auction was exemplary.  We believe both Cherry and Steve are a formidable team. We would not hesitate to recommend their services to clients who want all-inclusive real estate experience with a positive outcome.” David & Judi L,Epsom


“Cherry Killgour and Steve Leyland were the agents we chose to sell our house in Remuera.   Our house was by far our biggest asset and we wanted the sale to go smoothly.  Cherry and Steve were wonderful. So hard working, dedicated, efficient and well organised, as well as being positive and cheerful all the way through the process.  They met our highest expectations and more.  We are grateful for everything that they did for us. They certainly went the extra mile on our behalf.  We recommend them without hesitation.”  

John and Hillary S, Remuera


“I was lucky enough to have Cherry and Steve market and successfully sell my property in Stonefields.  Cherry’s attention to detail was such a huge help in preparing my home for market - the feedback on the presentation was outstanding.   Communication was timely and incredibly professional and at every stage of the campaign I knew exactly what was going on.  The day of the auction was exciting and I went in to it knowing that Cherry and Steve were going to deliver me a successful result and they did.  I watched them build a strong relationship with the prospective buyers and then convert this into a sale on auction night.  I strongly recommend using this power duo to market your property.”  

Paula H, Stonefields


“Cherry and Steve have been wonderful in getting the best price for us in the sale of our property.  It was great having two agents (basically for the price of one), who worked for the seller totally (a rarity in this market).  They listened to exactly what we wanted and what our end-game was. They had a buy-in with us and this worked to everyone’s benefit.  PS Steve works overtime for Jellybeans!”  

Luke and Raewyn P, Ellerslie


“Cherry and Steve were a dream to work with in selling our house. They kept us well informed throughout the whole process and went above and beyond in helping us make sure our house was as well presented as possible with their advice on what we could do to ensure this was achieved, and the odd leaf blowing assistance pre open homes was beyond the call of duty and much appreciated too!  Cherry and Steve bring a personal touch to everything they do, and even their follow ups with any potential buyers was so thorough we were confident nothing would slip through the cracks and are delighted with the outcome.” 

Ross and Carolyn S, Ellerslie


“Just wanted to say how impressed we were with Cherry and Steve in helping us sell our house recently.  

Having previously sold the house to us, we knew how well they interact with prospective buyers, which was important in our decision to work with them.  Their communication throughout was superb, and nothing was too much trouble for them.  They were also extremely helpful advising us on our own purchasing process, despite there being no direct benefit for them.  They were passionate, driven, hard working, and lovely to deal with.  We were just as happy with the process as the end result, and would recommend them to anyone.”  

Mark F, Sandringham


“I just wanted to write a short note to tell you how impressed we were with Cherry and Steve (two of your agents).  From day one they operated in a very professional, but approachable manner.  Nothing was too much trouble and they took our needs into account always.  They achieved a good result for us after a week on the market and handled the multi offer situation with integrity. They are both a credit to your office and we would not hesitate to recommend them to any other sellers.”

“It is my pleasure to recommend the professional services of Cherry and Steve, who recently managed the marketing and sale of my home of many years in Mt Albert. Their professional skills and knowledge are exceptional. But just as importantly they both supported me throughout the process by their cheerful encouragement, warmth and steadiness. They remained positive throughout a journey that was at times unusually complex for me. The outcome of the auction was proof of their wise judgements – in timing, price setting, and understanding of the needs of buyers as well as sellers. I could not praise them enough.”

Rosalie L


“Cherry and Steve have marketed and sold two apartments in the city for us and at all times have been a great pleasure to work with. Their customer care, professionalism and knowledge takes many of the stresses and concerns out of selling a property, and their support and direction is invaluable in understanding the process that is required. I would recommend Cherry and Steve to any prospective vendor wanting some sound advice and excellent service.”  

Frank and Tina S


“We bought our house from Cherry and Steve two years ago, so when a move to another city was necessary they were the first people we called to assist us with our sale.  Cherry and Steve are highly professional and communication at every level is a priority with them.  Whether your property sells quickly or takes a little longer, you can be sure that Cherry and Steve will give you 100% at all times and having that SOLD sticker outside your house will always be their focus.”  

John and Lynne K, Royal Oak


“We had a successful outcome from our sales process with Cherry and Steve. Their systems and processes were very effective and they reacted promptly to any issues that arose. Our property sold quickly on what commentators were saying was a slowing market. We were very happy with Cherry’s positive approach and effective communication with us and potential purchasers. All in all, a very worthwhile business relationship.”
