Sales Manager, Ray White Next Step Realty Limited
Lucia took to Real Estate the way she took to life - full of enthusiasm, commitment and a thirst for knowledge.
Having moved to New Zealand 24 years ago from Romania with her partner, in typical Lucia style, they bought land and built a house.
She thoroughly enjoyed the whole process, and with her extensive experience in marketing and management (Lucia also has a masters degree in Engineering) she decided to "go for it" in Real Estate and "go for it" she does! With no stone left unturned for her clients in achieving the best price and delivering the best service, her quick wit and ready smile, they know they have a real advocate representing them in negotiations.
Lucia says : "I enjoy helping people to achieve their sales and always strive to get the best possible price for their property. Let my enthusiasm, experience and knowledge get you a successful sale."
Let her enthusiasm and knowledge work for you.

I thought she was extremely helpful after our offer had been accepted and I was always able to get a hold of her when I needed too. She is very happy and friendly and one of the better real estate agents that we have dealt with. I would definitely recommend her, plus I loved the chocolates and flowers she gave us as a present (also the wine that I cannot drink at the moment).
Ashley and Anthony McLaughlin
Lucia is friendly and very easy to deal with. She is very helpful and does what she says she will do.
Quentin & Kim Forster
She was absolutely amazing. She went out of her way for us and is still giving us helpful information about purchasing our new home.
Lucia was brilliant, helpful and considerate of all our feelings. She went out of her way to help us. And nothing was too much of a hassle.

Beverley and Kevin O'Brien
Lucia is always professional in the way she conducts her business. She works very hard, often going beyond what you would normally expect. We will continue to have Lucia as our agent as we sell off our portfolio.
Yvonne & Anthony Smith
She was very friendly and helpful throughout the process.
Robert Lee Taylor
Lucia went out of her way on more than one occasion. Without her input we would never have achieved the final result.
Theresa and Dennis Peacock
She is awesome. So easy to talk to, understanding, patient and nothing is a problem. Past experience with real estate agents have been unbelievable. Most were at best dishonest. I sincerely advise you to hold on to her.
Lucia has been very helpful especially with the curve ball on the settlement date when the vendor passed away.
she is a very efficient and hardworking and honest person with good marketing skills and attitude

To whom it may concern, Numerous agents pestered us "to list" (tying us up for 90 days). Lucia came along with buyers and "listed" for 3 days with assurance they would deliver. With enthusiasm, tenacity and efficiently Lucia soon had 3 offers for us resulting in a very satisfactory result. We would recommend Lucia with total confidence. Your sincerly, Peter and Rosalie Henderson 17th January 2012

18/09/2013 To Whom It May Concern: I have made 3 requests for appraisals on my home at 246 Hills Rd. 2 requests with 1% commission companies and the third with Ray White Next Step. The low commission companies gave me a top price of $290000 . When Lucia came back with all the appraisal in writing and very well detailed, she gave me the certainty that we can achieve over $310000 . Also in a very professional way she gave me ideas what to do, and together we have managed to present my home to the best. She has exceded the expectations and she presented me with 3 offers of very high value. Also she has not stopped there she has obtained a back up offer. My lovely home sold for $337500. Everything worked very smooth and I have obtained a good price for my home. I will always recommend Lucia, and I will employ her again without any doubts. Kay Stone
To whom it may concern With the sale of my property at 219 King St, Rangiora I would personally like to recommend Lucia Ghidinici of Ray White Real Estate. Her approach to achieving a sale was driven with enthusiasm and total dedication. Her manner and appearance in greeting potential buyers was impeccable. On one of the Open days I watched from a distance and was delighted and impressed how Lucia greeted people at the door, shook their hands in acknowledgement and introduced herself to them. I have dealt with other agents before and had never witnessed this before. Compliments to you, Lucia. In conclusion Lucia has the thrive, the dedication and compassion in succeeding, not only for Ray White but also for her clients 100 percent. Regards, Glenn Norris
Glenn Norris - Rangiora
Lucia is a confident person, assured and more importantly for us, a person who was not to be typecast (or stereotyped) as a "typical real estate agent". We knew that we owned a property that would be a challenge for any agent to list and subsequently, successfully sell. Therefore after serious discussions with a number of agencies we decided to list our property with Lucia. We would happily, without reservation, introduce and recommend Lucia to others and would not hesitate to work with her again.
Ryan G Holt - Oxford Farm
Lucia Ghidinici has just completed the sale process and has proved at all times to be prompt, well informed and respectful. She has good negotiation skills, a no nonsense approach and was prepared to do a lot of extra work to finalize what was a quite complicated sale and purchase agreement. I can thoroughly recommend Lucia as a hard working, dedicated agent.
Ruth Kendall - Ilam
Our association with Lucia in the sale of our property has been very professional, efficient and all together a very pleasant experience. Lucia has shown great zest and enthusiasm in the way she goes about her duties in the real estate profession. We would have no hesitation in recommending Lucia Ghidinici as a very proficient, diligent and tireless in her occupation with the real estate profession. We wish Lucia every success in the future.
Dympna & Trevor Saul - Amberley
She is a warm and pleasant person and very helpful and she keeps her word

I found her to be a very lovely lady. Very friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable in regards to selling houses. When we build our house soon, we will be getting her to sell it for us. I have already recommended to to my friends.
Brent Sampson & Karen Barnes
Well organized, great communicator. Care and look after the client
Ina and Mohamed Ehab
Lucia went out of her way to assist us in selling our home, and finding a new home. We felt that she is honest and has integrity,always doing her best for us and not trying to feather her own nest. We have recommended Lucia to friends, family and co workers who are thinking of relocating.
