Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Papatoetoe
As soon as you meet Raksha you’ll realise she’s a woman who loves life and is passionate about people and real estate.
You’ll notice she’s ‘quietly buzzing’ with life, knows what she’s talking about, is experienced, professional and gets results. With a degree in economics and land management together with a passion for people and property, real estate was the obvious career choice for her in 2003.
With many years and hundreds of property sales to her credit, she has a sound real estate business built specifically with her clients’ needs in mind. If you were to read her many testimonials from previous clients the following words and phrases appear quite often, clearly defined plan, perfect plan, professional, price above our target, excellent service, wonderful job, absolutely delighted, far exceeded our wildest dreams, feedback, love her smile, awesome work, tells it straight, best smile in the business, hard working, price beyond our dreams
If you were to ask Raksha what, apart from her marriage and her business, lights her up, she’d tell you that family is very important to her. In her spare time she loves to curl up with a good book or surf the net for ideas for her next family holiday.
To Whom It May Concern: Testimonial for Raksha Lakhan, from Margaret Marion Clark: On 15 November, Raksha sold my home at 3 Gaylord Place at auction on the premises. I found it to be a fun day and the climax to a positive working relationship between Raksha and me. All the work that Raksha put in before the auction was outstanding in its streamlined simplicity. She gave me practical advice as to how to prepare for OPEN HOME days and followed through always with a smile . A pleasant overall experience that I had been apprehensive about. I would happily recommend Raksha for her efficiency, professionalism and general confidence building manner I wish her well in her career. She is an asset to Ray White.
Margaret Marion Clark - 3 Gaylord Place
Raksha was very pro active during the sale process. She kept me well informed regarding interest in the property both through the open homes and Trade Me.
We had Raksha and Sunil work as a team. I think this worked well. I had my doubts at the start but once we got over the speed bumps i was happy with the end result.

Raksha is a true professional and extraordinary at what she does in helping her clients.
I'd like to acknowledge and express my gratitude to Raksha Lakhan for her professionalism, empathy and patience in working with me I was referred to Raksha through a friend Tasi as I was looking for an agent who I could trust and could understand what I needed. Feeling a little anxious about selling my property that I'd lived in for over 30 years I met with Raksha with a friend of mine Peka and connected with her straight away. She was very honest direct and explained thoroughly in a way that I could understand. We met with Raksha every week to give updates on what was happening and where things went at. My friend Peka has sold a property earlier and was amazed at how efficient Raksha in comparison to what she had experienced. I didn't want her to think her efforts were unnoticed and have been telling my friends and families about what a wonderful Agent she is. I highly recommend Raksha as she goes above and beyond just "selling a house".

Christine and I would like to thank you for all the effort you put into marketing our property. You started off with a clearly defined five week plan and followed it to the letter. The result far exceeded our wildest dreams and gives us a sound footing for our retirement plans.

Tom Watson - Finlayson Ave
She is absolutely great salesperson, Raksha gave me a excellent service, even I were in Australia on the auction day ,she still did a wonderful job for me.
I had 2 investment properties since 2005, I was dealing with Raksha when I was in the process of purchasing these then I lost contact with Raksha about 4 or 5 years ago, I sold my last investment property in 2013 through another agent. Couple of months ago I received a friendly phone call from Raksha to see how things are and she asked me if I was thinking of selling or buying, never thought about but she made me think twice as the market is going pretty good at the moment. Since that conversation with Raksha, next minute, our property is on the market to sell, a month later OMG SOLD!!! Raksha has been very good with our process, provided us with feedback in regards to the people going through and show interests in our property. I would recommend Raksha to anyone that is selling or buying. Very easy going and love her smile :) Keep up the great work Raksha.
Sakalaia & Tasileta
Absolutely delighted with the sale and the very professional manner that you conducted yourself during the entire listing and selling process of the property.
Mohammed Khan - Moffitt Pl
very smart auctioneer impressively . and the awesome work from the listing agent ! wonderful experience of our auction of 133 finlayson ave. manurewa. :-):-)
Raksha contacted us around 14 months ago and has kept in touch regularly over the period until it was time to sell after which she put in a plan to market our house which she followed to the letter. Her DAILY feedback was great and as she planned put up the SOLD sign exactly as planned. Very good price; everybody happy!!!!!!!!!
Hey Raksha, Thanks again for the good result yesterday! "When the market is super hot all manner of amateur, inexperienced, and pretty darn average agents come out of the woodwork hunting for an easy commission... And then there's Raksha! Raksha is one of the 'good ones’ who tells it straight and has surpassed my expectations overtime I've worked with her. " "The way to tell if your working with the best agent is not to look at how many houses they are selling in today's hot market - but how long they have been around with consistent results and how many houses they sold when things were tough a few years ago! I've engaged with Raksha on multiple occasions as both a seller and a buyer through two booms and a big bust in the middle. Raksha has a big list, knows the right people, and has the best smile in the business!" "As a cynical property investor I see agents under perform on the most basic campaigns over and over again. Raksha delivers - always." kind regards, Edwin

We would like to express our heartfelt appreciation to Raksha and Sunil for selling our family home. Our home was on the market for over 5 months when they came with a plan to sell our home. We listed for Auction with them and were amazed at the result. We sold well above reserve and above our listed price as well. Raksha and Sunil worked extremely hard and were very professional with their dealings. Even though they were very busy we always felt like we were the only people they were working with. They provided comprehensive reports with honest buyer feedback. We acknowledge the amount of effort they made attracting and preparing potential buyers. We had 10 bidders at our auction and sold under the hammer. We are extremely grateful to Raksha and Sunil for achieving a result which exceeded our expectations well and beyond. We would highly recommend Raksha and Sunil to anyone looking to sell or buy their home.
Kim Keang Tauch - Mahia Rd
I would like to thank you Raksha, Sunil and Ted for the fantastic job you did on marketing, auction and completion of sale which took place today. Whilst rather reluctant to sell my mum's house by auction whilst tenants were renting I was impressed that the property in Clendon Park sold in under 5 weeks. Not only was it a quick successful sale, we achieved a price beyond our dreams. As you know we interviewed 3 Real Estate Companies and your proposal was the most sincere, enthusiastic and exciting therefore we would have no hesitation in recommending you to other buyers or sellers. Regards, Sharron Gardner On behalf of Pamela Bergersen Estate
Sharron Gardner - Bellville Dr

I'm very pleased in regards of their hard work they have done for me. I won't hesitate to recommend Raksha to any person who wants to sell their house due to honesty and hard work.
Dhiraj & Nileshni Ram - Kolmar Rd
"Raksha was quite new to Real Estate when we did business together so to see she is still at the same firm now, years later, is evidence enough of her success. I found she was genuine and honest with a pleasant demeanor which makes her refreshing to work with compared to other Agents. She has a calmness which keeps the vendor and buyer comfortable and relaxed during the stressful process of selling one's property. Raksha will be the sort of person you will want to come back to for your next sale/purchase"
Dean Viall - Samara Pl

Hi Raksha & Sunil, We would like to express our appreciation for the efforts of you both in selling our house. We are sure, that your efforts in attracting and preparing potential buyers, was the reason for the success of the auction and in achieving a price we were happy with. From the very first meeting to the end of the process we were impressed with your warm and friendly manner. You made the task of selling our house easy and relieved much of the stress of this by your professionalism. Your advice throughout was always clear and helpful. We would have no hesitation in recommending both of you and Ray White Manurewa/Sue Douglas Property Services Ltd to anyone we know who is contemplating selling or buying a house. Thank you both again for your efforts.
Shelley & Russell Lamb
When I met Raksha and Sunil for the first time I was instantly taken by their knowledge of sales & marketing and their motivation to sell our home. They weren't shy to give advice that would attract buyers. I acknowledge Ray White Manurewa for their professionalism, care and support they showed for each other, when Raksha needed her manager's advice on anything Sue was always available and helpful. Sue and Raksha kept their explainations simple and it was easy for me to understand. An example is when they suggested an Auction - I had regular comprehensive weekly meetings. I am happy to say the house sold way more than the reserved price. Sue you were right all along. I'd like to acknowledge Sunil for being at every open home for bringing many viewers through our home (I have the cards to show) and your belief that the house would sell. Even though Sue, Raksha and Sunil were very busy I always felt like I was the only person you were working with. You made me feel a part of your team and for that I am eternally grateful. If there are any regrets it would only be I wish I had come to Ray White Manurewa sooner.
