Colin has been extremely helpful in all sorts of ways. He dealt with everything promptly, keeping me apprised at all times and carrying through on what he said he would do. He even provided boxes for me and water blasted some concrete. He went beyond the call of duty.

We first met Colin when he succeeded in quickly selling a contemporary home next door to us after it had been on the market for some time. He was the first and only agent to knock on our door to introduce himself in the years we have been in our private road, and that impressed me from the start. So a few months later we decided to ask Colin to sell our large architecturally designed home in the middle of winter - not the best time, but a challenge that Colin met with professionalism and energy. Within 2 weeks of an intensive campaign, to our amazement and delight we had a sale at the price we wanted. But it didn't stop there. The after-sales period involved more decisions than we expected and Colin was adept at managing and helping us solve every one of them. One of the main advantages we found working with Colin was that every question we had was answered quickly and competently from his many years as an agent. This is gold. We have had no hesitation in telling everyone we know to use his services. Kevin and Andrea. July 27th 2017

Colin went above and beyond, and was always available with practical and helpful advice. His negotiating skills were second to none.

Colin was great to deal with. He knows the market, was organised, kept me updated and was honest in his feedback. He also goes beyond what many other agents provide and was excellent to deal with.

Once upon time there was a couple who lived in a quality apartment on the fringe of Central Wellington. From this wonderful location they were able to enjoy the best Wellington has to offer simply by walking out to the Opera, concert, exhibition or to stroll by the Quay and stop at a café (ah the coffees!). A decade on, they decided to move to their beach cottage up the Coast. Knowing the value of their apartment, they engaged Bayleys, paid for the considerable marketing and sat back to see the prospective buyers pour in. Duly they came, oo’ed and ah’d, loved the apartment, a few very interested, and would buy it if they could (if they sold their house in Mirimar, if their partner agreed, if the bank would provide the money). The stream became a trickle and five months later the lovely apartment had not sold. It was agreed that the Wellington market was dormant, if not dead. Clearly a fresh approach was necessary. At this stage they contacted the Wellington Manager of Remax, asking not for an ordinary agent, but for their special agent (their 007, so to speak), one who could sell a quality apartment at, or better, above the market price and actually sell it in the current sluggish market. Curiously, the manager did not hesitate. Enter Colin Kelly. As soon a Colin took over the whole game changed. There was an immediate injection of purpose, energy and pace. Colin was positive, on the ball, lively and affable, in word completely professional. He kept them in touch with events and provided clear explanations of what was happening. What had been stressful seemed to become something like an adventure, almost fun. The couple were looking at each other saying, ‘we are going to sell this apartment, this guy really knows what this business is about’. More, Colin had a cunning plan! Within two weeks of Colin getting his plan underway the couple were in Colin’s office negotiating a sale at a very acceptable price (and above the value recommended by Tommys, at the end of the 5 months) and with perfect conditions of sale. His fee was higher ( he said he was worth it!) and he proved it. Everything went smoothly and without fuss to the obvious pleasure of the buyer as well. It was a classic win-win outcome. Now the couple can be seen coming out of their apartment, stopping to admire the sign with its scarlet slash saying boldly “Sold”. So this couple’s very genuine recommendation to anyone who is having, or fears that they could have, problems in selling well in the current sluggish market is a simple one. CALL COLIN.

When it came to selling our late mothers’ Mount Cook townhouse , which had no code of compliance and monolithic cladding, Colin was recommended to me by a real estate valuer, for his pragmatic approach. It was a tough ask, but from our very first conversation, Colin swung into action researching the property and the nearby market. Through his years of experience and broad network, he was able to identify and assemble an effective marketing strategy to get us the highest possible offer. All the while, being considerate of my tenants and their young baby. Colin kept me well informed throughout the process. He set clear and realistic expectations, then went ahead and exceeded them. Colin delivered us multiple offers within just a few weeks, successfully selling the property. In two previous marketing attempts, other agents had failed to even get us even one offer! I am happy to recommend Colin for not only his pragmatism, but also his unwavering determination and comprehensive industry knowledge. Lisa Jarrett

I have known Colin Kelly for over 23 years and he has helped me sell several houses over this time. I keep coming back to Colin each time because I know he will tell me the truth (even if I don't want to hear it!) and he really knows how to get the best out of the sales system to maximise my return. This includes house presentation tips method of selling, marketing spend and negotiation. He never makes anything my problem but just gets on and deals with things as they come up. I highly recommend Colin to anyone wanting to maximise their return and lower their stress levels.

I have known Colin for 20 years and he has sold real estate for me on a number of occasions. I have kept engaging the services of Colin over the years because he is what I would call "the consummate professional"- he is thorough, extremely reliable and always professional. I have no hesitation in recommending Colin to others who are interested in either buying or selling real estate.

"My experience with Colin has been truly excellent. In twelve years of property investing and all the agents I've dealt with over this time, Colin has topped them all. From the get go, Colin was both professional and easy to deal with. Rare for an agent, he was non-invasive to my personal circumstances as well as non-pushy at all times. Colin was happy to offer a wealth of information, both from stats as well as experience and opinion, and had no problem offering his time to chat. It was always clear that he did his best to be upfront and honest in all respects and this was much appreciated. Colin also went above and beyond in numerous ways given that my location was out of town. On top of all of this, Colin was friendly and a pleasure to deal with and I would gladly list my home with him. All the best Colin Rachel'

Colin Some words Colin is a very experienced agent and it shows. Colin has sold over a hundred properties for me, over at least 20 years As a vendor selling 3 townhouses recently, into a challenging market, Colin served me very well. He gave me great advice as to how to get the units ready for market, what to focus on and what to leave and how best to market them and advertise them. Then Colin really came into his own once negotiations started and I felt like he really worked hard in my interests. He got more for one than my own valuers’ top figure. He understands the game, is highly ethical and I have no hesitation recommending him. I wish him all the best for the future Mike McCombie Director Balanced Investments Ltd

We have bought and sold a number of properties over the years but have to say that our experience with you has been by far the most positive. You went beyond the call and we are very appreciative.A big thank you for your efforts in selling our apartment in Wellington. Being Auckland based we felt it was important that we had some one that we could trust and who was knowledgeable in our particular market. The marketing period took in the earthquake and some minor maintenance issues which you sorted out on our behalf, as well as organising the packaging and removal of our furniture so that we did not have to keep travelling backwards and forwards to Wellington...what a bonus.. And I even think you changed some light bulbs for us. Many thanks
