She was very knowledgable and knew how to handle many of the difficult issues we had as our property was affected by the earthquakes and rezoning also. Friendly approachable and professional.

We experienced many very slack agents when looking for a home. They did not seem to want to engage in conversation or discuss the properties. Many did not return calls or follow us up. Pip was the first we met who actually treated us like we were valued

Great service from Pip, very professional and efficient. We also found her very genuine and approachable and love the fact she has checked in with us further down the track to make sure things are going well, Thanks Pip!

Pip sold my house in December 2017. The property was a rebuild from the CHCH earthquakes. The land had had major land remediation to take it from TC3 to TC2 category and the building had been designed using new technology to ensure it is now one of the safest in town. I had invested extra money to create a high end executive apartment. The build was completed on the 5th of November 2017 and I was determined to have it sold before Christmas. Pip was on standby and ready to pounce at completion date, she had completed a total review of all the land and building structure, liaising with the engineers, builders and architects to gain a full understanding to pass onto potential buyers. All paperwork was completed before the first open home (something I have recently noticed other sales people may not do). The property was sold under the hammer on 14 December 201, with the new owner taking possession a week later!!!! I even had the money in the bank by Christmas!!!! The price met my expectations and the builders were also very happy with the results, 3 other properties in the same block were for sale at the same time and although my property was fitted out to a higher standard, Pip managed to get approximately $160K more than 2 of the other properties. I believe the other properties were sold well under priced due to the salespeople not having the same real estate knowledge as Pip. Thanks Pip :)

Selling my home turned out to be the one of the best decisions I have ever made, and choosing Pip Sutton to manage the sale made the whole process so smooth and stress free for me. My home sold after three 45 minute open homes. I am honestly quite amazed as to how Pip managed to achieve such a great result for me, in such a short time. I knew my home was a lovely family home, with lots of extra features, but which had unfortunately become much to big for me. However, to achieve such a swift sale, and at my asking price in such a short time span, obviously entailed a lot of behind the scenes work by Pip. I felt totally at ease with Pip from the start, she was so very ethical, and knowledgeable, I always knew she was giving me her best shot, and I found I could trust her completely. I would recommend Pip to anyone who feels a bit apprehensive, about putting their home on the market. Pip will do her utmost to achieve the best possible result for you, and I'm sure my purchaser found her to be as pleasant to deal with as I did.

''I had my property listed through an established Christchurch real estate agent for approximately two months before Pip Sutton got involved with the sale. The previous agent's marketing structure was average, to say the least. As soon as Pip Sutton got involved I felt a lot more confident about achieving a sale in the price range I expected. She was extremely professional, energetic, motivated and enthusiastic. Exactly what I need to achieve the best results. The advertising of the property was extremely well done. The photos showed the true potential of the property, and the text was punchy and accurate. As a result, Pip had a number of interested potential purchasers after the very first open home. Within a few weeks the property went unconditional. Pip Sutton was totally professional throughout the whole process, always keeping me informed as to the progress of the sale. I would have no hesitation in recommending Pip Sutton as a real estate agent.''
B Johns - St Albans, Christchurch
"Pip kept us informed and well advised throughout the process of selling our house, we would not hesitate to employ her again. She was impressive with her knowledge of Christchurch and specific local research prior to marketing our property. Pip presented compelling backup to support her advertising recommendations, which resulted in an early offer and sale. We have now both bought and sold through Pip Sutton and have been more than happy with both transactions."
Liz and Mike - Halswell, Christchurch
''I don't know any other agent that I would trust (and like) more. You know it's true. I really would rely on your advice more than other estate agent's, and again it is true. You helped us buy our first home here in New Zealand, and this has been our greatest achievement by now, by far. This is why we do trust you and appreciate what you've done for us.''
S Baluti - Bromley, Christchurch
''We were first attracted to Pip Sutton through a flyer in my mother's post when we were in Christchurch, settling my mother's estate. We liked the fact that it was a family business and then we met Pip and because of her down-to-earth-full-of-energy-no-crap-professional-attitude, we signed with her to sell mum's house. She made this a very easy experience for us. We left her to it and we returned to Auckland. The ease was added to by her ability to use offices in Auckland, enabling me to sign an offer and fax straight back and the fact that her relationship with Auckland made this easier because she could guide me to the nearest office. Now we feel we have become friends and look forward to her coming to our house warming. See ya later and thanks for making it fun and easy.''
M C Saunders - Coatesville, Auckland
''Having had our property on the market for longer than we expected and having struggled with our previous agent, we found Pip was upfront, honest and dedicated and we were impressed with her ability and knowledge in marketing our home. We were especially pleased with the effort that Pip made to keep us constantly informed of all the processes involved in the marketing and selling of our home made even more difficult as we were overseas. We would recommend Pip as a dedicated, hard working and professional sales person. Thanks Pip we are extremely grateful for the effort you put in for us.''
