“It is with great pleasure I write to recommend Anna Byron. Anna is a recent and most welcome addition to my Real Estate life. In more than three decades of property investment, Anna rates as one of the most skilled negotiators I have ever had the good fortune to deal with. I have no doubt, that by engaging her services, you will receive (as I have), service which is smart, savvy and consummately professional. Under her watch, I believe, your best sale price will be achieved. By way of a bonus, Anna adds to her professional 'mix' by being charming and kind - making the selling of your home or investment (a time which can be somewhat nerve-wracking), a little less stressful. I am a single woman spending most of my time working out of New Zealand. Anna has been wonderful in relieving me of much of the stress involved in dealing with my property issues. I trust her implicitly. If you are in any doubt you and your property are in expert hands, I would welcome your call”.
Colleen Shana - Epsom / Parnell, Auckland
“My husband and I decided to rent out our home as a rental property. We were super busy with a toddler and new baby on the way and someone recommended we use a property manager. We came across Anna Byron and were so glad we did. Right from the start she took control and was very thorough. Annawas constantly looking out for our interests as though we were part of her family. She made us comfortable and at ease throughout the entire process and was always there with a quick response to any questions or issues that arose. Anna Byron is exactly the example of how a Real Estate Agent should treat their clients. My husband and I highly recommend Anna and wouldn’t hesitate to use her expertise again in the future”.
Emma & Carey Tasker - Avondale, Auckland
“We decided to choose Anna Byron from Austar Realty to take our property to the market after meeting with several Agents in the area. From the very first phone call right through to settlement, we found Anna to be extremely professional. She always went over and above our expectations and was so different to Agents we’d dealt with in the past. Nothing was too much trouble. You can definitely tell Anna really loves what she does. Her communication was faultless, as was her abundance of energy, knowledge and powerful negotiation skills. She had a real knack with people – whether it was us, our buyers, solicitors, contractors or our tenant. She certainly lived up to her mantra of ‘Bringing Service Back’ and I would highly recommend Anna to anyone seeking a hassle free Real Estate transaction”.

“Anna helped us fulfil our dream of a first home and we couldn’t be happier. Communication was always fast and clear which made the entire buying process run smoothly. I loved being able to text or email to arrange meetings or viewings as opposed to the never-ending phone calls we received from other agents. Buying a first home is stressful but Anna helped us to take it all in stride and provided excellent council when it came to making the big decisions. I would highly recommend her to friends and family.“ First Home Buyers.
James & Chloe - Auckland
“We choseto sell with Annadue to the detailed and professional manner in which she presented her initial ”sales pitch" of herself and for our home. Instead of coming to ourhouse and just telling us what she thought it was worth and that she would be able to sell it easily, herself and a colleague came with a full presentation including documentation on ourproperties history, sales in the area, outline of the timeline for sale and how she intended to market it (including full cost breakdown). From there the entire process was very easy from our side. Anna was always easily contactable if we required anything, and also kept us well informed along the way. Another thing I appreciated was that it was either Anna orthe colleague who was with her at the initial presentation that conducted the open homes. This is something we did not seeoften during our new house hunt. I would not hesitate to recommend Anna to any prospective vendors, as we already have."

Kathy & Gordon Hughes - Henderson, Auckland
"Anna has been extremely professional and personable throughout the whole sales process. We initially chose to sign up with Austar Realty due to Anna’s prompt responses to questions, spot-on marketing plan, and flexibility in her approach to the sale of our property. As we haved moved to Hawkes Bay, Anna liaised with our tenants on our behalf in order to organise viewings and open homes, and recommended and arranged any necessary cleaning prior to the first open home. We had an offer within a couple of days of our house going on the market, and had a further multi offer after the first open home, one of which we accepted. Anna appeared to build an impressive rapport with prospective buyers, which was also evident when we made contact with our buyers after going unconditional. We would not hesitate in recommending Anna to anyone. Cheers Lucy".
