Licensee Agent, Ray White Ponsonby
Listening Carefully, Advising Responsibly and Negotiating Astutely
Calm under pressure. Honest. Strong. Knowledgeable. Clear. And very, very determined.
These are the hallmarks of Angela as a highly successful negotiator, and they are the reasons that her clients time and again choose to sell with her.
After several years experience in real estate, Angela completed a Postgraduate Diploma of Business Studies in Real Estate. Not surprisingly, she focused on negotiation. “Great negotiation skills maximise the selling price, which is my primary goal in every transaction. Listening carefully, advising responsibly and negotiating astutely are the three ways I add the most value to the sale of your property. These skills are honed through years of experience, and subsequently bolstered through my formal training."
From 2011 to 2016 Angela was the top performing sales person in the Ponsonby Ray White office. As an elite performer, Angela knows how to sell in both good and difficult markets. She understands the importance of having great administrative assistance, which she has found through her PA Zara, to ensure she can focus on providing a responsive service for her vendors, as well as her purchasers.

I'm a Commercial agent myself. I find Angela one of the top agents (in fact the best) I have had dealings with in the St Marys Bay/Ponsonby area over the last 10 years, that's why I chose Angela to sell my property (despite personally knowing other agents in the area). Angela certainly lived up to my expectations, and I would have no hesitation in engaging her again to sell with (or hopefully to buy through also).
Sold the house and worked at it, and kept us informed and reassured. Good team behind her.
Andrew & Janice
Angela was a dream. She played both side of the sale fairly and professionally. Nothing was a problem. Everything was easy. JOY!
Oliver & Liberty
I gave Angela a 10 out of 10 because she sets a good feel about the sale and she's calm to deal with. She assessed the pace of the sale well and is generous on a personal level to aid the sale.
Angela is quite simply a superb operator; straightforward, clear thinking and thoroughly competent with an engaging and helpful manner.
Such a pleasure dealing with Angela and her assistant Zara. Always available and responded immediately to any queries.
Justin & Juliet
As a relative novice in the house market Angela provided me with information covering the procedures, steps and support which would be available to me during the sale of my home. Angela or Zara were there to answer questions or attend meetings with me and my family during, what I found to be, a stressful time.
Angela did an outstanding job, was professional yet friendly and paid a lot of attention to detail. There was never any question left unanswered and she always responded quickly. Most of all Angela excelled at developing an overall sales strategy which made sense and was evidence based, and she tracked progress against it as the weeks progressed to see if any amendments or adjustments were required.
We really like working with Angela, she is informative, we always had a good understanding of our options and where we stood.
Louise & Jarrod
Angela was amazing when I purchased this property off her four years ago and was amazing again when I sold it. She's given lots of helpful advice over the campaign, is extremely knowledgeable, reliable and great at her job.
Angela is easily approachable, sincere, trustworthy, business-centred, always amenable, interested in you as a person, very professional and relates immediately to who you are and works hard to achieve what you want.
Iain & Moira
Providing a stress free experience. Sound real estate procedures. Most of all honest, respectful and always available to assist with any issues at any time.
Gavin & Sue Savage
Angela did everything possibly to market and sell the house brilliantly
Margaret, Apenui, & Elizabeth
Really responsive, sensible, not interested in hyping anything too much--just got the job done really, really well. I am living overseas and I felt totally supported; I trusted her to cover every small detail, which she did.
Was working when no one else was which meant we could take advantage of no stock on the market to achieve our price.
Angela has maintained contact through the purchase of our home 11 years ago with relevant information about the property market and amazing customer service to boot. Couldn't imagine listing with anyone else.
Jane & Giles
Excellent communicator. Unique winning style in the way Angela works alongside her Vendor. No prompting, self assured, gets job done. Honest reliable with integrity. Highly pro active, strong and focused. The whole package!
We were in the market for close to a year trying to find the right property. We let agents know that we were in the market. Sam tirelessly introduced us to opportunities when others must have decided we were being too picky. He was extremely professional in his approach and made the effort to develop an understanding of what we were after. He introduced us to the house that we purchased. Angela and Sam were very generous with their time during the marketing campaign accommodating repeat visits to the house and keeping us informed of developments relating to the property. Angela took us under her wing on auction day and did a lot of the hard work. Her guidance during the auction process was invaluable and she created a sense of calm in the high-stakes moments. We are hugely appreciative of their efforts and could not recommend them more highly. Thank you. Mat and Kristy
Mat & Kristy
With her wealth of knowledge and understanding of the current real estate market Angela was able to provide me with sound advice regarding all aspects of selling my property. She has an amazing support team in Sam and Jules and together they made the entire process less stressful. All three worked with me in a calm and professional manner offering peace of mind every step of the way. I know Angela works very hard to get great results for her vendors; I believe we achieved the absolute best result on the day. In my mind Ray White Ponsonby continues to maintain a solid reputation built on integrity, forward thinking and positive attitude - I’d tell anyone considering selling their house to go with Angela, she is the best! Thank you to you and your team Angela, it was a pleasure to work with you!

John & Helen
She was fair and reasonable in her assessment of our property and the property we tried to buy. All options were realistically covered with respect and good will.
Sandra & Heather
very good communication
Angela was exceptionally professional punctual & honest
Hamish & Margaret
Angela impressed us as being very knowledgeable about the market and used her long experience to advise us on the best marketing campaign for our property. She told us what she believed needed to be done to achieve a successful outcome, she was practical with a no nonsense approach, available at all times to advise us.
Rosemary & Thomas
For me, Angela’s best qualities are her integrity and her frankness. For two years she looked for a place to fit my request. She kept me updated on sales and open-homes in the area that fitted my profile. Finally the perfect fit. The buying and selling process that followed was less stressful than imagined because Angela provided clear guidance. I was grateful for her honesty, knowledge and advice throughout this professional relationship and I would not hesitate to recommend her as a real estate agent you can rely on to keep confidences and do the best she can for you.
Barb Austin - 22/148 Howe Street, Freemans Bay
Angela was the obvious choice for me when it came to selling my apartment, and to looking for a new place to live. Having bought my current apartment through her 5 years earlier, I knew that she was professional and extremely well-connected in the area we wanted to sell and buy in, but also very genuine and friendly. With Angela's help, we found a buyer for our apartment just a week or so after buying our new place. Buying a house can be extremely stressful, but with Angela and Sam's support, the buying and selling process went very smoothly and we are now happily settling in to our new home. I would recommend Angela to anyone who wants an agent with the nouse of an absolute expert in her field, with a down-to-earth and approachable nature.
Tessa King - 6/58 Wellington Street, Freemans Bay
I was most impressed with Angela. What I like most about her is that she is very realistic and honest. She has a straight forward, no-nonsense approach and never gives a false impression about anything, which was a pleasant surprise. I was very happy with Angela and would definitely recommend her.
Kristian Larsen - 9/8 Pratt Street, Freemans Bay
We are very thankful for your professional, insightful and skilful management of the sale of our family home. The detailed information you provided helped guide us through the marketing, open home and auction process; taking the necessary time to thoroughly explain each step as required. Your feedback and advice was thorough, regular and reassured us that we were making informed decisions. You were at all times respectful, professional and we appreciated your honesty and insightful advice throughout the entire process. We would thoroughly recommend you to anyone who seeks an agent who provides up to date market knowledge, a great work ethic, a top quality marketing strategy and all the information required to achieve a successful outcome. We would have no hesitation in recommending you as our Real Estate agent of choice to those who are looking for a quality service that satisfies all parties.
Byron & Cynthia - Westmere
I found Angela Saunders to be straightforward and helpful throughout the process of my purchase in Richmond Road, Grey Lynn. The agent is of course acting for the vendor, but I found Angela and her team made the purchase easy for me as a purchaser, both at auction and negotiation afterwards. The information Angela provided regarding the rental potential of the property was if anything, conservative.
Chris - Grey Lynn
This is the third time I have used Angela Saunders as our estate agent because I value her ethical practice and superb service and have on each occasion been very pleased with the outcome for all parties concerned. And simply, I wouldn't consider using anyone else!
Helen Charlsworth - Ponsonby
Angela was fantastic to deal with. We agreed upon a two week marketing period and realised a great price on auction day. She made the whole process simple and transparent and I would absolutely use her again.
Bridget - Mt Eden
Angela has been very easy to work with through the entire process. She has been professional at all times and offer fair and reasonable advice when required. I would have no problems recommending her and would be happy to employ her services in the future.
Gareth Ngan - 3 Summer Street, Ponsonby
A very big 'Thank You' to Angela for her sterling work in the marketing and sale of my home. As a person living alone it was important to me to deal with someone who inspired confidence and trust and was empathetic to the stresses which can accompany the sales process. Indeed, she took the stress away with her calm, down to earth, practical, honest and knowledgeable approach. She kept me fully informed throughout the whole campaign, offered sound advice and never pressured me in any way. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Angela to anyone who wanted a similar experience which culminated in a price they were very happy with
Sybil - Grey Lynn
Working with Angela was fun but she was always professional and kept me up to date with progress. Although the sale had its ups and downs, we got there in the end and Angela never lost her focus.
Julie - Freemans Bay
To find a home in such a short time was amazing. To have an offer accepted and move in within 72 hours is practically unheard of. Vacating our home in between was insane. Without Angela's skill in negotiating and soothing, the transition would not have been possible. And to top that off once the banks and solicitors understood that this was required, they just made it happen.
Ian & Jo - Ponsonby
After careful research we selected Angela as .... she stood out from the .... local agents .... My initial meeting with Angela reinforced to me the qualities that ...make the best Agents - exceptional presentation, an easy but confident manner, and a demonstrable knowledge of the local market and current buyers. Angela kept us fully informed .... of buyer feedback and price expectations, ..... I believe that Angela's great rapport .... with potential buyers .... helped to keep our pool of buyers focused on our property .... I would have no hesitation recommending Angela to sell your property, as quite simply she is a great Real Estate Agent. Angela exceeded our expectations in the area of selling price, professionalism, and most importantly integrity through-out the process from our first meeting to settlement date - thanks Angela!
Hamish & Charlotte - Grey Lynn
Angela, you and your team exceeded our expectations on the way you handled the marketing and selling of our property. We felt fully informed and updated on all the 'goings on' with the house throughout the whole process. It was a busy 3 weeks but you made it easy (well – as easy as it could be!) and you and all the agents were respectful of our time and space. Also – the result speaks for itself !!!
Tony & Neil - Freemans Bay
I first met Angela at the open home and she was immediately friendly and helpful. This continued through the supply of information and a couple of follow up calls. She obviously knew the place and was happy to discuss or find out the things I needed to know. After the auction Angela was very helpful in terms of getting through all the paperwork, very accommodating around getting the inspections done etc. I would be happy to recommend Angela to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house with confidence.
Sean - Grey Lynn
Angela has been very helpful and professional throughout the process of looking for, finding and managing the sale of the property we are buying through Ray White Real Estate. I have enjoyed working with her and found her to be very fair-minded and thoughtful.
Sally Simons - Freemans Bay
Having met Angela at Open Homes we were consistently impressed with knowledge of each property; her loyalty to her vendors; her approach to selling our house that had been sitting and hey she sold it in one day!
Barbara - Remuera
I found Angela very efficient and extremely pleasant to deal with in selling my flat. Her connections and her knowledge of the area are very good and I would certainly recommend her to anyone wishing to sell a property.
Mary Cameron - 4/87 Beresford Street, Freemans Bay
Angela and Pam took over the marketing of our home when our first choice agent went on extended holiday so Angela and Pam were behind the barrier and at a disadvantage. However, to their great credit they quickly developed a close and strong relationship with us which lead to the successful sale of our Ponsonby home. Their strengths are many ie an outstanding understanding of the Ponsonby and surrounds residential market. Professional skills to the highest standard including the auction procedure. Outstanding clear communication abilities.
Graham MacKenzie - Ponsonby
Angela developed a great, professional and confident approach with me by telephone as I was based in Wellington. I found she was diligent, interested in understanding my needs and excellent at providing timely updates. She also had a friendly approach which I prefer
Lisa - Kingsland
I would like to take the opportunity to thank Angela and her team. Angela says she is calm under pressure, honest, strong, clear, experienced, knowledgeable, determined. She absolutely delivered on all of the above without a doubt. My property was sold in three weeks for above the price I wanted. Angela made the whole process easy and stress free. I would not hesitate to use Angela again.
Colleen - Freemans Bay
Angela is the agent I will be returning to if I am in the market to buy or sell a property. Angela is smart, relaxed, considered and took time to understand what we were looking for. She encouraged us to take our time with respect to research and reports. This approach led to the purchase of our property after a long period of searching for just the right home, and now we have it. Thanks Angela.
Katie - Summer Street, Ponsonby
Angela was honest, straight forward, supportive knowledgeable, easily accessible trustworthy. A great woman and who went the extra mile and is an asset to your company.

Cheryle & Andrea
