I would like to express my thanks to Helen Smith for selling my house. I am especially grateful for the way in which she sold it. No trying to run the house or price down! She was honest and supportive through the whole process. There were some difficulties after the agreement went unconditional and Helen was amazing in helping to resolve that, especially considering she had already received her commission. Her manner was always proffessional and positive.
I needed to write this as a recommendation to anyone considering selling their property on Waiheke Island. I listed my Onetangi property with Harry Howe and Helen Smith of Raywhite Waiheke Island and must give credit where credit is due. They both did an outstanding job with the marketing of my property and I was always kept updated with their progress through out the campaign. All this resulted in a successful sale under the hammer above my reserve on Auction day. Thank you both and the rest of the team at Raywhite Waiheke. Should anyone want to talk about my amazing experience with this team. Please don’t hesitate in contacting me in confidence Thank you Peter Young
Very friendly and met all out requests.

We had used Helen to sell a previous property recently and her professional approach, empathy, personality and excellent communication throughout the whole process exceeded our expectations, hence the reason we wanted to engage her services for 11Waiheke Rd and once again it was déjà vu.

Personal, honest and although a difficult transaction with vendors overseas we felt that both Donna and Helen were easy to deal with.
Helen was fantastic - efficient, professional and friendly.
Helen achieved an amazing price for our property and we are so happy with how she navigated the sale. She was proactive, efficient and kept us in the loop through all stages of the process - a fantastic communicator. Not to mention we really like her as a person, thanks Helen for selling our section!

When considering which real estate agency to select for the sale of our property on Waiheke we wanted a high profile agency with excellent marketing, history and track record, plus of course high numbers of successful transactions. With this in mind we chose Ray White Waiheke, and met with Donna Rogers and Helen Smith. They are a unique pairing of artistic flair, business savvy, professionalism and real attention to detail. From the outset they were a delight to deal with, extremely proactive, and left no stone unturned in finding qualified buyers for our house. Not many agents will help stage the home for photography and viewings with such an eye, and such professional communicators across the board. We received regular and timely briefings on all viewings, and thorough preparation for auction day. We thoroughly enjoyed dealing with them…they were fun and business like at the same time…and we felt confident and reassured throughout the marketing process. On the stormiest day in recent history on the island of Waiheke we achieved a great sale price at a bustling auction, and they fulfilled their promise to us of finding the right buyer, in the right timeframe, at the right price. We recommend them highly, and will certainly use them again when the occasion demands it. Karen and Gavin Houston - March 2017

Helen worked over and above expectations and was super committed to getting me a great result.
Helen remained from the very outset calm , logical, knowledgeable, co-operative, helpful & thoroughly professional.
We were very impressed with all of Helen Smiths handling of the pre-appraisal, marketing plan, management and timing of the open homes along with a number of individual possible buyer visits. Helen also demonstrated her rapport with other Ray White agents and agencies by gathering a large turnout at the initial caravan as well as individual agents bring their possible buyer through the property. Helen had to deal with a number of legal and building aspects that arose throughout the process and she never let us panic. She kept us fully informed throughout the whole process. Selling a house is never easy but Helen really made it a smooth and calm process for us. For that we are very grateful
Helen was instrumental in the successful auction of our house. She assisted significantly with the property presentation, and offered great advice. Helen kept us informed of progress and communicated effectively. Throughout she had a positive outlook and was very proactive behind the scenes. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Helen and would not hesitate to recommend her, or Ray White to friends and family.

I am writing to show our appreciation in the service and commitment we received from Helen in purchasing our first home.We have worked with Helen for the last year to find the right home for us. Throughout she has shown true professionalism and compassion to our quest. Without her assistance at the auction we wouldn't have purchased this house.She is streets ahead of any of the other agents we have used and a credit to your business. We have recommended her services to our friends and to others we know who are looking for homes. With her friendly and positive nature we will not hesitate to contact Helen again when it comes to buying our next home.

Very approachable, very prompt with enquiries, goes out of her way to get the deal done.
I wanted to write and thank you for all your hard work and effort in selling my property. The photographer that you chose did an excellent job and definately helped to sell the house.. But your attitude and attention to detail were amazing. You alway got back to me promptly and were completely dependable. You were always calm and reassuring when I was stressing. I couldn't recommend you more highly and have to my friends and neighbours.

We wanted to write and comment on our recent experience of dealing with your company and in particular Helen Smith who assisted us with the sale of our property. Helen, and thus Ray White, were recommended to us by a trusted friend and we are pleased that we acted on that recommendation. From our initial meeting through to the successful sale of our property, Helen conducted herself in a professional, friendly manner at all times. She was thorough and hard-working on our behalf, enthusiastic with good people skills which attracted many positive comments from those who attended open homes etc. She kept us informed throughout the process with regular phone calls and visits to our home, and was very clear with her explanations and suggestions. We would certainly recommend Helen to others who are looking to buy or sell a home and we hope that we can have the privilege of working with her again one day. Thank you so much Helen!

My wife and I are delighted to have just bought our future family home in Auckland from London without even visiting the property. Helen handled the sale. It goes without saying that we placed a tremendous deal of trust in Helen and we did so on the basis of meeting her only once in person. At that meeting she impressed us as a professional with very high integrity, an impression she has lived up to. Her ability to quickly establish rapport, trust and understand buyers needs means she can confidently bring overseas buyers like us to her selling clients. Thus providing a larger pool of prospects with whom to negotiate. Buying or selling in Auckland in the future we would not hesitate to engage Helen.
Mike Munley & Wendy Kerr - Auckland
Helen Smith acted as an excellent catalyst to the sale of our property. She facilitated a busy schedule of Open Homes and actively encouraged buyers whilst maintaining good relations with neighbours. We were kept well informed at all stages of the process. As a remote vendor it was important for us to trust our agent to represent our best interests locally. Helen and Ray White delivered on this admirably and we would be happy to recommend their services to others looking for a professional real estate agent to manage their house sale.
Justin & Paula - Dublin, Ireland
We found that Helen was very enthusiastic and would have no hesitation in recommending her to market your home as she did a great job when we sold our home recently.

I am pleased to volunteer this reference to place on record my satisfaction and appreciation of the enthusiasm and excellent performance of Helen Smith in connection with the sale, just completed, of a residential property over which I had Power of Attorney responsibility. The property was in my view, unusual and unique for these reasons. It required a well-considered, unique and deliberate sales strategy to attract the right purchaser. Helen Smith did listen to me (the 'client'), clearly did her homework and gave the issue 'quality time and thought'. She responded by providing a well-structured proposal, adequately tailored to the particular circumstances of the property.
John Le B Chamberlin - Auckland
from the beging Helen showed empathy with her client,\ i felt very much involved with the process. commitment and professional process was exceptional. there for me 42/7
Helen was excellent to work deal with , she was helpful, efficient, organized, spoke well ( she was easy to speak to at any time , nothing was a problem) and she really did want to sell the property for the highest price, she worked for us not the buyer ! I would say Ray White is lucky to have her as an employee !
