Dot Phillips

Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Barrington

Helping you to make your realty dreams come true!

Dot Phillips understands and cares about people. It is this compassionate ability to tune in to her clients needs and wishes that allows Dot to help them achieve their dreams, whether buying or selling.

Keeping clients well informed with regular feedback is important and Dot works hard to make sure her clients understand the process and strives to make the sale as stress free as possible. She will go out of her way to gather the information needed so her clients can make well-informed decisions.

Dot believes that simply doing what is required does not attain excellence; it is achieved by going above and beyond the norm by embracing a commitment of excellence and living by these values.  She says she will always go that extra mile.

With 27 years in the realty industry, 14 years running her own successful agency in South Africa, Dot understands the need to keep up-to-date with the latest real estate trends both locally and nationwide. Her ability to read the market has helped her achieve regular success for her clients, including getting 14 offers on just one property. Her ultimate goal is to achieve a successful sale with happy clients.

Being part of a strong professional team, achieving goals, and having a determination to continuously build on her strengths is what keeps Dot motivated. She brings a wealth of experience to her clients as well as strong business ethics, extra-ordinary service, integrity, confidence, and above all friendliness.

Dot also has a background in working with people as a counselor and volunteered to help people through the Christchurch earthquakes.

When Dot is not working, she enjoys walking and, when possible, loves spending time with her adult children and grandchildren.

Dot was a pleasure to deal with – throughout the entire process she was hard working and professional and went the extra mile to ensure the sale completed. Even with the difficulties involved in dealing with EQC, Dot’s efforts made the process considerably easier and her advice and assistance was greatly appreciated. I would have no reservations at all in dealing with Dot again and thoroughly recommend her to buyers and sellers alike.

We have had the privilege of working with Dot Phillips, the Real Estate Agent who we chose to sell our house in St. Martins, Christchurch. It was the middle of winter, and as it turned out, the site and surrounding area had previously been a landfill and listed as contaminated under the LLUR. From the day we signed up with Dot, she assured us that she would sell the house and within three weeks we were presented with a high offer. Unfortunately, that offer and another after that fell through for one reason or another and we were beginning to lose hope of ever selling at a reasonable price. Throughout all of this Dot remained enthusiastic and reassuring. She was always very informative so that we knew how things were progressing at all times. Her manner was friendly but always professional. I felt that Dot took a real interest in our situation and was really trying to do her very best for us. Her suggestions were always raised politely and were to the point. All of Dot’s hard work and determination got us the buyers we were looking for. We are very happy with the service we received and if we ever find ourselves selling property again we would not hesitate to put it in Dot’s hands.

It was my lucky day when I met you, you took me through what was expected when the house was on the market. Your knowledge and help was great, I did appreciate that. I think you did an amazing work for me. I will certainly recommend you as one of the best real estate agents to my friends.

Dots warmth and honesty drew me immediately and at no stage of my dealings with her did I have cause to regret my decision to have her market my home. As an elderly person on one's own it was hugely comforting and reassuring to have someone of Dot's warmth and integrity involved in the very successful sale of my property. The daunting process of selling my home was made so much less stressful thanks to Dots expertise and encouragement. She is the very very best and I would strongly recommend her to anyone considering buying or selling their property.

Dot Phillips acted as my agent in selling my house in Halswell recently. I believe Dot always had my best interests at heart in suggesting a deadline sale as the best possible way to sell my house. This suggestion resulted in a sale price of $12,000 above the amount I considered I would get for my home. Dot was respectful, kind and patient and always listened to my queries or concerns, I believe she had my best interests at heart. Dot arranged a series of open homes to facilitate the sale process and quickly provided information about the results of each open home. I consider the action Dot took to sell my home resulted in an outstanding result for me. Dot’s dealings with me meant that the sale of my house was stress-free. I trusted Dot’s judgment and I am very grateful I chose Dot Phillips as the agent for selling my property. I unhesitatingly recommend Dot Phillips as a successful, supportive and most helpful real estate agent.

"Dot is the best agent you are ever going to have. She helped us purchase our home in a highly competitive market - she is very thorough with her work and very responsive, she is very patient - knows her real estate market and very personable. We have had several other real estate agents before her - and while they have been all good – Dot is just more efficient and cares more about her clients. She understood the importance of getting us our house and followed up on all angles possible to ensure that we would be able to attain our new home. She kept us informed and educated us on the process, and also continued to follow up with us. I can't thank her enough. One awesome quality about her - is that she is relentless in getting information - she will call whoever she needs to get info, and make sure everything is on track. She is just great! She is all about integrity and excellence. Extremely detailed and patient and on top of all this, she is such a kind soul. I really can't imagine getting any better service than this".

Dr Shailesh Kumar Singh

"Thank you very much for all your help and hard work in selling our property. You have always been friendly and easy to talk to, and have kept us well informed all the way through. We were particular impressed with how respectful and understanding you were to our elderly tenant. You certainly helped him to feel more comfortable about the prospect of people coming through his home for open days. We really appreciated this. We appreciated how patient and understanding she was with him." Kind regards"

Cheryl and Graham McNickel

"Dot was very, very helpful, both to us and the customer. She worked very hard to get the sale for us, asking us the information the customer required, which we gladly supplied. The customer was also very impressed with how Dot worked."

Gary Jayet

"I first went to another real estate agent who told me there was no chance of selling for a good price. I met Dot a couple of doors down from our place preparing another house for sale and had a wee chat. I was querying her if houses would sell in our area as we lived in Dallington with the red zone on our back door and a couple or houses either side of us. Dot was always confident in a sale we were realistic we would take a loss because of the red zone being so close but happy to give it a go. Dot was very thorough, very informative and always positive for a great result which she achieved. I will continue to recommend Dot I have recommend her to many of my TC3 friends who have also had good results."

"Well done Dot and thank you for selling our family property. You did well. Highly recommended to all. Please use this delightful lady to sell your home -She is the best! Thank you Dot!"

Ruth Jeenes.

"We have taken the time to sit down and write this reference for Dot as she deserves it after all of the hard work she has done for us! We have never met anyone working in the service industry as diligent and good at communicating as Dot. We like to know what is going on every step of the way, after all our house is the biggest financial investment by far we will ever make. Even on our tight and busy time frame, Dot did that for us, in her ever positive and friendly way. We genuinely believe Dot puts in the amount of effort she would to sell her own home which is a thousand times more than we can say for a number of agents we have come across recently in our search for a new property in the North Island! We would recommend Dot to anyone looking at listing their house in a heartbeat and we only wish we could have taken her with us to help in our search up North! She really knows her stuff and is a pleasure to work with. A one in a million agent."

"We had advertised on trade me which is how you came to contact us. When you approached us we were sure we could do it ourselves and save the real estate fees. We had had so many viewing the houses on the site but no contact from anyone except yourself. After another month of this and still no contact from any buyers we gave you the listing for the 1st property which you sold within 6 weeks then it was time for the 2nd property which you sold as well within the price range we expected for both the properties. We will continue to recommend you to everyone we know who is considering buying or selling a property".

Paul & Margaret Reti.

"Dot was constantly helpful and friendly, her dedication, lovely nature, knowledge and passion for her profession make it very easy for me to recommend her. I know that we will happily use her services again the next time we are in the market. We really appreciate all your hard work & devotion in helping us to find just the right house for our family."
