Reviews

Thank you very much for the work you have done on our behalf for the sale our investment property at Butterworth Drive. We are extremely happy with the outcome of the auction process. As you know we were a little unsure of which way to go when we received the pre-auction offer so early in the process. However the auction was very lively and resulted in the best possible price for us on the day. The quick turn-around for settlement is also good for us to get this process settled quickly. Thank you for your professional approach to this sale, the detailed and precise information you provided along with your frequent updates. We will certainly be happy to use your services again when it comes time for us to sell our family home.

I chose Michael Gee to sell my Glendene property after meeting with another agency and two other agents. After speaking to all three, I believed that Michael was the best agent to sell my rental investment. I am pleased to say that I believe I made the right choice as Michael exceeded my expectations. I have bought and sold numerous properties and Michael is one of the best agents I have worked with. He was committed to achieving the best result for me and his communication with me was faultless throughout the whole process. My house went to auction whilst I was overseas and I fully trusted Michael to do the best he could to secure a good result. He achieved a fantastic result, achieving an excellent price in a very short amount of time. We only had one weekend of open homes and there was a pre-auction offer on the Monday following the open homes. Three days later the house went to auction and achieved substantially more than the already accepted pre-auction offer. If I were to sell a West Auckland property again, I would have no hesitation in engaging Michael’s services. I would fully recommend Michael as an agent to anyone wanting to sell a house in the West Auckland area.

Michael did a fantastic job of selling my parents’ home. It was a difficult time for my brother and I, moving on the family home and Michael was both sensitive and professional. He kept us appraised of all interested buyers, met with us regularly and went above and beyond the expected level of service. Potential buyers appeared to find him approachable, and the time he spent following up each open home attendee was pivotal in achieving a result that exceeded our expectations. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone selling their home.

On behalf of myself and the family, thank you very much Michael and your team upon the successful sale of the family properties. We appreciate your professional and efficient service throughout the entire sales process. What was initially only the selling of our vacant lot, quickly developed into a dual sale, introducing and also including our family home. The prospect of a dual sale by NEGOTIATION appeared a little daunting at first. But Michael negotiated and executed the sale in one smooth and simple transaction, resulting in a successful outcome for both parties. Michael’s personality, passion and experience has undoubtedly matched our properties with the right buyer.

I would like to thank you for the effort you put into marketing and selling my property. I would happily recommend you, as it was great dealing with someone I could trust. Not only did you deliver what you promised but also the best possible outcome for me with a fantastic auction result.

Kathleen Hay - 16c Craigbank Avenue, New Lynn

A big thank you to Michael. I was very impressed with the service I received. Michael was very professional and respected my wishes in all aspects of the sale. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Michael came highly recommended to us by close family friends with a recent sales success through him. Naturally, Michael being Michael, he made first contact and on our first family meeting with him we were comfortable with what he had to offer. Within a short period of time Michael was contracted to sell our vacant lot earlier this year. After a short time on the market we had not only sold the vacant lot by negotiation, we had also sold the family home as a dual sale along with the vacant lot, which Michael successfully negotiated with the same buyer. With these sales proceeds we were immediately able to go to Auction to secure a new family home. We did just that, having Michael successfully bidding on our behalf. In the space of 4-5 months Michael sold both our family properties and secured us another listing. Our family highly recommends the sales expertise of Michael Gee.

We recently sold our house in New Lynn with Michael Gee. I found his services to be excellent. He always went the extra mile with every aspect of selling our home. He is very professional, and honest. He kept in touch with us every step of the way with a great result at the end. I would highly recommend his services!

Andie Park - 15 Kelston Street, New Lynn

During my experience with Michael Gee whom we chose to market our property at 6 Khaleel Place in Henderson, I am writing to highly recommend Michael Gee as a very polite, competent, caring, and results driven individual. Michael was very pro-active in his approach and communicated with us regularly, informing us of interest from people who attended our Open Homes and offering feedback. We were lucky to have achieved a great result with the sale of our home exceeding the reserve price. I wish Michael the best of success with his future aspirations.

We engaged Michael to sell our house in October 2015. At that stage we were still in the research phase but when it came to choosing an agent Michael's local knowledge and strength of appraisal made him our first choice. The situation was slightly unusual in that we had also been recommended another local agent; Michael was very gracious and understanding of this and ultimately the 2 agents worked as a team to market and sell our property which, we believe, strengthened all aspects of the sales campaign. Great bang for buck! In particular Michael stood out for his clear, relaxed communication and the thoroughness of his follow-up and open home reporting. Again, the knowledge that Michael has regarding local real estate meant he was spot on with his appraisal and this gave us great confidence that we would achieve the very best price for our home. It is easy to generalise Real Estate agents as being "in it for themselves'. With Michael we felt reassured by his genuine and trustworthy nature; two qualities widely believed to be lacking in this field. Ultimately the price Michael was able to achieve for our home far exceeded our Expectations, but just as importantly, the whole process was smooth and stress free. We would absolutely recommend Michael Gee in selling your home and would engage his services again without hesitation. Thanks Michael.

This was our first experience in selling a house. Michael made things really easy for us. He knows the market and the expectations he set on price were excellent. The open homes and auction were run professionally and Michael kept us updated at all times. I would definitely use Michael again and recommend him to others.

Amanda Delamere - 35 Vintage Drive, Henderson Heights

Never let a chance go by to attract potential purchasers to the property. A real professional.

Paul Thurston - 7 Pakira Ave, Glendene

We were very impressed with his professionalism, knowledge of the local market and the real estate process. From the date of listing with him he took control of the marketing, advertising and gave great feedback virtually every day on the progress through the marketing campaign. His reports giving the analysis of the buyer’s comments at the close of each weekend of open homes was invaluable as we knew which buyers were hot, warm or cold. As we were down country for the auction day, Michael and his team took control, set up and ran the auction, with an attendance of 50 interested parties, which resulted in an unconditional sale under the hammer, at a price well above our expectation. We would certainly use Michael to sell our properties in the future and recommend him to our friends, family and colleagues. Well done Michael!

Garry & Laurel G - 23 Cochran Road, Oratia

My husband and I found Michael Gee to be very professional and honest. Michael took away the stress factor while selling our property. Michael loves his job and thrives on getting results to make his customers successful in receiving a sale. Keeping us up to date with every stage and finding the right buyers for our home was Michael's mission. We would not hesitate recommending Michael. We sold at Auction with a great result and are very happy. We wish Michael all the best in his future and thank Michael once again.

Dianne Pinkerton - 35 Carter Road, Oratia

After looking into listing with many different agents we decided to go with Michael due to his professionalism, local experience and very thorough market research. He was very open and honest with us about what we could expect from him. His appraisal on our property was right on point and on auction day we achieved above his highest expectation for our property. I would recommend Michael's services to anyone.

Ben and Kim Ubels - 3b Copley Street, New Lynn

I was extremely happy with the advice given on marketing, sale method, remedial work to be completed prior to sale and the home staging. The home staging and photography portrayed our property very positively and was good value for money. I feel that Michael was very approachable, professional and kept us well informed. I think Michael achieved a Google price for our property in the current market.

Adam & Rachel Plumstead - 115 Oreil Ave, West Harbour

As a developer with 30 years’ experience, I can say without hesitation that Michael has proven himself to be an exceptional Real Estate agent. I appreciated his pragmatic approach to my dealings with him and would recommend him to anyone wanting a no nonsense agent working on their behalf.

Craig O'Hara - 100 Mead Street Development, Avondale

Michael is an experienced agent with good local knowledge, and a very professional approach. I have enjoyed the time we have worked together on this sale.

Grahame Waite - 40 Mason Street, New Lynn

When deciding to sell our home we interviewed four real estate agents from three different companies and right from the first meeting Michael stood out as the most experienced, knowledgeable and professional of them all. He connected with our property and took a genuine interest in our home with a great eye for detail. Michael gave very accurate, honest and helpful advice regarding the preparation of our home for going to market. His marketing campaign was comprehensive and very well targeted to the right type of buyer for our home. We very much appreciated Michael's advice, honesty and personal integrity throughout the entire campaign and were always kept fully informed of progress at all times. Michael is a genuine, straight talking, down to earth professional who really did deliver the goods. It has been the greatest pleasure to work with him and I unreservedly recommend Michael as the real estate agent for your next sale.

Iain McDonald - 12 Denyer Place, New Lynn

If you’re looking to sell your home, in my opinion I don’t think you can better the New Lynn office under Michael Gee’s management. I found Michael laid his cards on the table from start to finish and took you through the process which included their salespeople from other branches. A wonderful service and outcome. Very appreciative!

David Fitchew - 64a Seabrook Ave, New Lynn

Very good and reliable agent!

Priya de Fonseka - 123 Avondale Road, Avondale

I cannot recommend Michael and his team highly enough. As an overseas based Vendor, I was understandably nervous in the lead up to the sale of our property. However, Michael ensured I was always updated with the latest feedback and kept the lines of communication open. I found him incredibly professional and a pleasure to deal with - it also helped he achieved a sale price we could have only dreamed about!

Claire Tintinger - 12 Denyer Place, New Lynn

Recently I found myself in the position of having to sell a rental property I jointly owned with my father. My father had a friend who worked at B&T. However I was determined to recruit Michael Gee from Austar Realty New Lynn. I had seen him in action and was aware of his ability to read the market. We discussed several marketing strategies and tactical plans. He fully committed to what needed to happen and we were able to achieve a very satisfactory result with the sale price being $50k over the B&T appraisal. It is important however to mention for us the price achieved was secondary to the systematic and meticulous execution of the marketing strategy, auction plan, and tactical/ daily chores that needed to be taken care of by Michael. At no point did we feel less important than his other clients, or be left in the hands of other agents. Dealing with Michael Gee was very satisfactory both to me and my father. We are happy to recommend him and have no reservation in saying he will achieve best price for his customer, regardless of market activity.

Reza Derhamy - 1/32 Akehurst Ave, New Lynn

Selling Mum’s house in Auckland and living in Paeroa, Michael Gee was recommended to us. Michael is prepared, straightforward and the most helpful professional. At times I was blown away how he went out of his way to help us. A true professional with an easy manner. Thanks Michael – Magic!
