We actually first met Kate and Lisa when they were selling a house we unfortunately missed out on at auction. However, they kept us in mind and went "on the hunt" for us and introduced many wonderful houses that they thought would fit the bill for us (but without being pushy!). They were both very responsive and attentive, and we felt that they were willing to give good honest advice and put us first when dealing with vendors and their agents. So when we actually found a house we liked we had no hesitation in contacting them about it to help us, and in the end we got our dream house! We would definitely recommend Kate and Lisa as either a buyer or selling agent as they put their clients first.
Big Thanks to Ray White Kohimarama specifically Kate Shaw and Lisa Nelson for selling my home in Kohimarama. Kate and Lisa were professional and personable to deal with, accommodating a very satisfying outcome. 5 star rating in my view.
We listed our house with Kate Shaw and Lisa Nelson from Ray White Kohimarama as we had heard that they have great local market knowledge. We ran a short 3 week campaign finishing with a very successful outcome at the auction, we were thrilled! Kate and Lisa were so easy to deal with, the open homes were painless and they were always well prepared and presented – and went the extra mile to create a great atmosphere for buyers. Feedback was timely and informative and they both worked hard to keep all buyers up to date and interested. Kate and Lisa are delightful to deal with, making the process enjoyable and stress free, we always felt in good hands with them and had the confidence that they would sell our house. We would highly recommend Kate and Lisa to sell your house, you won’t regret it! We are exceptionally grateful for their help, guidance and for delivering a brilliant outcome.
I am not a first time homebuyer and I have dealt with many agents over the years both buying and selling homes. Going to open homes and checking out the market is something I enjoy doing and where one meets different agents from various agencies. This month I have bought a property in Auckland using the services of Kate Shaw and Lisa Nelson, both Licensee Salespeople at Ray White in Kohimarama. I am very happy to recommend their services. I could not have asked for better agents who both are very patient and gave me lots of valuable information the whole way, allowing me to make an informed decision with all the facts needed. Both being very dedicated to their profession, they will go out of their way to assist and are always quick to respond. Lisa also helped me post settlement sourcing information in regards to certain pieces from the home staging company that I fell in love with and wished to purchase. Kate and Lisa are both great agents that will definitely make anyone feel very comfortable whether they are involved in the sale or purchase of a home.
Choosing Kate as my real estate agent was the best property decision that I have ever made. Kate has a wealth of experience, training and expertise to draw on: she gave excellent advice on everything to do with my properties such as timing, marketing, presentation and pricing. In addition, she is very conscientious and hardworking: I could relax knowing that she was giving 100 percent towards achieving the best price possible for me. Communication with Kate is a pleasure: She was honest, intelligent, informative, thoughtful and warm and always responded promptly and positively to my communication. Kate’s feedback on my property marketing progress was very full and professional with all the necessary data presented in a very clear manner and regular discussions and meetings held. Kate is a very good listener and is responsive to client feedback and ideas. She’s also creative with her marketing ideas and willing to try something new if it will result in increased sales. My property sale experiences with Kate have been very positive and fruitful. If I ever sold my current treasured house, Kate would definitely be the one I would trust to sell it for me. The results that she managed to achieve with selling my family’s home, my residential property and investment home were phenomenal. All these properties sold well above the prices of equivalent properties and sold either at auction or within 10 days of being marketed at a fixed price.
We used Kate and Lisa to sell our family home in St Johns Park in December 2016. Kate and Lisa made what is typically a very stressful process very simple and even fun. They always arrived early to open homes to help us get the house ready which was really above and beyond what they needed to do but it was always very appreciated. They were a pleasure to deal with throughout the process, never putting pressure on us at any time, and helping us achieve a fantastic outcome. I would recommend Kate and Lisa above all other real estate agents if you are looking for real people who will take the time to get to know you as people, and who are passionate about getting the best result for you.
We engaged the formidable Ray White team of Marcus Hill and Kate Shaw in November 2015 to sell our Remuera house as we had purchased another property, having seen them in action at another auction in the area. We were very impressed with their professionalism and dedication to the task. They worked hard on the sale, showed numerous potential purchasers through the property, conducted a number of open homes and reported on progress quickly and efficiently. Both Marcus and Kate worked long hours and followed up all leads quickly and tenaciously. We secured a very good sale price even though the pre-Christmas period was a difficult one with many potential purchasers being distracted by Christmas preparations. We would unhesitatingly recommend Marcus and Kate to other vendors. They work together well as a team and complement each other's skills and personalities to achieve an effective sales result.

We have been fortunate to have had the services of Kate for 3 separate houses (1 purchase and 2 sales). In each instance she impressed me with her professionalism and commitment to the work in hand.
We recently enlisted Kate Shaw form Ray White Kohimarama to sell our property! Right from our very first meeting, Kate worked tirelessly to achieve a successful outcome for us. She put together a very compelling marketing campaign to ensure comprehensive exposure and as a result we had a great response to every Open Home. We found Kate to be friendly and personable while keeping us well informed with regular Vendor Reports. We felt very confident with our much loved Kohimarama home in her hands and appreciated her transparent communication. Through her highly proactive efforts we had a short and seamless campaign resulting in a very pleasing outcome for us and we sold in 16 days! We would have no hesitation in recommending Kate to anyone considering selling their property.

Having lived in NZ for 10 years we made the decision to move back to the UK and reluctantly sell our treasured home in Mission Bay. We interviewed four different agents/agencies but decided on entrusting Kate to sell our home in Atkin Ave. What made her stand out from the rest of the agents was how knowledgeable she was of the area and how she thoroughly explained the whole sales process so we knew what to expect. We immediately felt comfortable in trusting them to sell our biggest asset. They kept us fully informed every step of the way and on Auction day worked the buyers hard to achieve a terrific result. They made the whole process stress free and painless. We would now call Kate not only trusted business advisers but also our friend. We would highly recommend her for her knowledge, enthusiasm and honesty.

We are very grateful to Kate from Ray White Kohimarama and very appreciative of all the effort put into the sale of my sister's house in Auckland. She organised everything for the sale of my sister's house as we had no other family in Auckland. Her efforts had a large influence on the amazing price we achieved in the sale of the property. The house sold for approx. $100,000 more than we had expected and the property was only on the market for a week before going to Auction with an excellent pre-auction offer which was then hugely exceeded on the auction day. She kept in contact with us all the way through all the procedures even setting up a live connection during the Auction so that we could listen in. We very much appreciate the efforts of Kate. Our needs were considered and fully acted on. We would not hesitate to recommend anyone to deal with Kate if they want the best working on their behalf.

Kate from Ray White acted for me on the sale of my property. I would highly recommend Kate as your real estate agent having successfully sold my home in Benson Road after a 3 week marketing campaign. She took pride in presenting my home to the market and tailor made a package that gave the property maximum exposure with a very sensible marketing budget. I was impressed with her commitment and dedication to getting a result. She was meticulous about keeping me informed- I was never left wondering what was going on. She reported all the developments to me and didn't wait for weekly written reports which was important to me as an anxious vendor. Kate demonstrated a genuine interest and a refreshing positive approach in all her dealings with me. The real test came on the night of the auction when the property didn't reach my reserve but she continued to negotiate on my behalf late into the night until we concluded an unconditional deal on terms I was very happy with. All in all an excellent experience for me as a vendor.
Greg Thompson - Benson Road
Kate was fantastic. Kate always kept up up to date with what was going on. She was professional at all times. We felt she was honest and reliable. All the little extras they did for us made us feel well looked after. It was a pleasure working with her.
