Haydon and I, would like to thank you for the recent experience we had as purchasers of a property in Newtown Wellington. You have a real talent for providing personalised, professional, personable and prompt service. Your honesty and extensive knowledge and experience of the market was invaluable in enabling us to feel comfortable with our purchase. With exceptional intuitive people skills, and warm humour, you were able to walk us through the purchase of this property with little stress. You then, willingly shared your extensive skills and experience in the rental market, allowing us to secure excellent tenants. Its been a real pleasure doing business with you Carol. We wish you well in your future business transactions.

How not to be stressed. Have a land agent that really understands you, Understands your vision, acknowledges and works to time frames, Appreciates that emotional attachment and totally understands some of the hard decisions that have to be made. That provides wise neutral advice, when things feel a little overwhelming Maintains an amazing positive and highly motivated attitude. What an amazing experience, thoroughly enjoyed and stress free. Did I get the outcome that I needed, to sell and then purchase again? Absolutely Would I do it again with Carol? Absolutely Would I highly recommend Carol? Absolutely
I listed my inner city apartment with Carol and I was absolutely pleased with the results. Her wealth of experience left no detail overlooked. From the high quality photographs to the fresh-cut flowers and scented candles she provided for the Open Home, Carol ensured my property was presented in its best light. And with her vast network of contacts (probably larger than most politicians) I was certain my property was exposed to the most number of potential buyers. Three weeks later I accepted an amazing offer from the buyer.
Thanks so much for your efforts. I know that you were kept very busy with the enthusiastic response to your advertising campaign. I really appreciate how easy you made the sale process for me and I am very happy with the result. Thank you
In October of 2015 I engaged Carol Radford to handle the sale of my property in Island Bay. Being a little cynical through previous dealings with Estate Agents, I expected a sizeable marketing bill followed by a hefty commission for what seems very little effort. In reality however, I could not have been more wrong. The energy Carol brought to the table was far beyond any prior experience and exceptional to say the least. Carol went out of her way in preparing and arranging the house, providing me with a to do list, supplying furnishings, arranging professional photography, liaising with council and dealing with the extensive paperwork, site visits and red tape to achieve the necessary code of compliance I had neglected to complete with an old alteration. This combined with the many open homes and individual visits insured I had the maximum number of people interested on crunch day. Carol is an amazing people person and maintained a calm, can do, determined yet warm demeanour throughout the process. Carol is passionate about her work and this reflects in the energy applied in the preparation and sales process. While overseeing multiple tasks, her focus on presentation, people and integrity justifiably eases peoples doubts and will achieve or, as with my case, exceed the desired financial expectation. I will without doubt use Carol on future house sales as the experience is clean and honest, problems well managed, and the results outstanding.
We have bought and sold with Carol and have found her to be very professional and totally committed. She is always happy to answer any of our questions and her knowledge of real estate and the current market was very valuable. She has gone the extra mile for us sorting out issues and made the whole process as stress free as possible. We would highly recommend Carol to anyone wanting to buy or sell property.

I have bought and sold with Carol. From both sides of the fence Carol was fantastic to deal with and made the whole process very easy. As a buyer Carol had all the right property information available at the open home and could explain the in and outs of the apartment market in Wellington. As a seller Carol had a fantastic knowledge of the building and body corporate and was in a position to clarify any queries the buyers had. In all my dealings with Carol she has come across as very professional and honest and I would happily recommend her
