We chose to use Terry as our agent because of the obvious success he had in the local area as well as the very professional way he approached the business of selling houses. His marketing of our home drew large numbers of viewers through the open homes. We found Terry to be just as passionate about our house as we were. We would highly recommend Terry to anyone wanting to sell their home.

We would like to express our appreciation for the efforts made by Terry on our behalf in the sale of our property.

 

The sale took place in a difficult market, with sales figures dropping.

 

Our situation became complicated when the original agent with whom we had previous dealings fell ill, and Terry had to step into the breach. On top of that, we had to interrupt our sales campaign for three weeks in the middle of the set of open homes due to a family emergency.

 

Terry was patient and supportive throughout, and was unfailing in his cheerful attendance at open homes over an extended period.

 

When he realised we were running out of steam with our original approach, he suggested a short sharp campaign leading up to an auction.

 

This was very effective, resulting in a sale when other vendors in our street were giving up and pulling their properties off the market.

 

We are happy to recommend him to others seeking to sell their properties.

  Exceptional Personalised Service

I recently had to move my two Uncles from a family home, which belonged to my grandparents, (so they had been in it there whole lives), and sell it so they could move into care.  One of them is 68 years old and the other 65 years old both with different degrees of Parkinson's disease.

Terry was exceptional when working with them... he clearly discussed the options in regards to selling, and due to their distress we decided an auction was the best option with only a three week marketing plan so that it did not drag out the process.  

Terry kept us informed every step of the marketing process and was very patient and caring when working with my Uncles.  After every open home we were informed of the interest and success of the open home, throughout the three weeks. Terry meet with us three times, two for updates and then a meeting were he clearly and carefully explained what would happen at the auction with my Uncles and again patiently got the necessary documentation completed.  

One of my Uncles really struggles with new people so Terry suggested he call the auction  rather than introduce a new person to limit the distress.  I agreed and on the day he did an exceptional job, managing to get my Uncles 100K over their reserve.  This home in Pt Chev had been in my family for 100 years (my great grandparents) so very sad for all of us to let it go.  

Throughout the whole process I found Terry to be professional, knowledgeable, honest, transparent, considerate and caring.  He comes with a high recommendation from both myself and my family.

I wish to put on record my appreciation of the professional manner in which Terry Williams negotiated the sale of my property in Ennismore Rd Mt Albert

 

At no stage did he try to negotiate a lower price, even although several offers were refused.

 

At all times he acted in my best interests which was much appreciated.This resulted in a sale in a very short time at the original stipulated price without any problems.

 

I recommend Terry with confidence to anyone contemplating selling their property. He did a great job.

02 Bill Shears

I write in reference to Terry Williams, Harcourts Epsom, who we engaged for the sale of the family home after the passing of our mother. While these times are not always comfortable, often complicated and require a particular approach, Terry immediately gave us confidence in the process.

 

He provided simple advice and a reassuring insight into the market. He simply promised to achieve the best ptice in the current market.

 

He subsequently handled the sale as a true professional and all we could have hoped was achieved. We are delighted with the timely and efficent conclusion and terry is to be complimented  on his eye for detail and thorough professional application.

 

In retrospect I am particularily mindful of the advice provided in relation to the housing market at the time of the sale, provided in good faith and accepted without regret. The timing was impeccable.

 

I would not hesitate to recommend terry to anyone needing a pro-active advocate in the professional sale of property.

03 Cameron Drake

We have in the last six weeks sold three residential properties thanks to the dedication and professional approach of Terry Williams. When we made the decision to market the properties for sale we had no hesitation of who we would use to conduct a sales & marketing campaign on our behalf. Terry had sold us the first Auckland property around 10 years ago and has since this time kept in touch with us both in a professional capacity while also expressing a genuine interest in our family life.

 

We believed that Terry would approach the marketing of the properties in a professional manner confident in the knowledge that he would provide an honest appraisal of the properties and work on or behalf to secure sales at a fair market value. Terry delivered in all regards from helping to develop suitable marketing campaigns, conducting property-viewing appointments that were the least disruptive for our young family, to providing prompt verbal and written feedback from prospective purchasers.

 

Testament to the success of Terry and his professional approach is that all three properties were listed and sold in less the 30 days. Terry understands real estate and delivers results without needing to resort to rhetoric or fabrication.

 

We wish Terry all the best in his career and if in the future we are back in the Auckland area looking for property we would not hesitate in using Terry again.

04 Craig and Sandra

I consider the success of my plans is largely due to Terry's generosity, and commitment to the task. I count myself very fortunate to have had his help in my endeavor and commend him to anyone else who requires the assistance of a real estate agent.

 

When I expressed the desire to look at other properties in Warkworth, Terry took it upon himself to drive me there from Mt. Albert (an hours drive, and on two occasions) and to canvass all the local estate agents for a suitable property, within the appropriate price range. Having taken my needs and financial position into careful consideration, Terry accomplished my installment into another home that I'm very pleased with.

 

Terry has been a considerate and committed friend to me throughout the course of my transfer and I hope in this small way to endorse his work, and him personally.

Dear Terry, I write to express my gratitude for your help in selling my home in Seaview Terrace, Mt Albert

 

As a former coordinator of the University of Auckland's Diploma in Professional Ethics, Co Director of the University's Centre for Professional Ethics and a professional ethics consultant, I have had a good deal of experience with the real estate professions.

 

I have been extremely impressed with your professionalism while managing what has been, because of factors outside of your control, a drawn out sales process, albeit one concluded remarkably quickly once we finally had everything in place.

 

I have come to have the utmost confidence in your honesty, competence, and professional judgment. I have always found your advice clear, useful, and frank. Clearly, you have at all times gone beyond the strict requirements of your professional role to help my family attain their goals. We are very grateful. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending you to anybody requiring reliable, honest, and highly competent real estate expertise.

06 Tim Dare

Thank you for all the help and advice you gave my wife and myself when we found that we needed to sell our house in the short time of a month from scratch. We felt that you understood our problems, my wife being in a wheelchair, the fact that some of the rooms were still being used as storage and that the garden was not looking the best. Despite these obvious drawbacks you were still enthusiastic and marketed the house in such a manner as to effect a sale on our behalf, at a price, which met our requirements.

 

My wife and I are very happy to recommend to any one contemplating selling their home that they could entrust the sale to you, knowing that you will ensure the best outcome for them.

07 John Powell

The whole thing was handled in a totally professional and friendly way from our initial discussion with you about marketing and sale options, right through to the final signed agreement. It was great to have someone who lives in, and understands the area as well as you do on the job.

 

We are delighted with the outcome.

 

Changing houses is not something we have done a lot of and you removed many of the uncertainties and concerns we had.

 

Your help and advice when we were buying our new house last year was most appreciated.

08 Kerry and Maureen

Prior to having contact with Terry, I was rather negative in my attitude towards Real Estate Agents. Terry has definitely changed my opinion and is a credit to your organisation. Because of the positive experience I had with Terry, I have, and will in the future, recommend your organisation to others

09 Kris Fernando

I would be remiss if I did not write to you and commend the high level of professionalism and efficiency we have experienced working with Terry Williams. Although we had not worked with Terry for several years, based on that initial experience, we felt that he was the most appropriate Realtor to enlist to help us sell a property located at 20/28 Williamson Avenue, Ponsonby.

 

Once again, Terry's professionalism was evident from our initial contact.


Without hesitation I confirm that it would be a pleasure to work with Terry again, should the occasion present. And we would most certainly recommend Terry to anyone who solicited our opinion as to whom they might approach to obtain competent real estate advice and service. In addition to his high level of professionalism, Terry is a very pleasant person with whom to work.

10 Lynne Morton

We have no hesitation in recommending Terry Williams to any person or organisation who seeks diligence, honesty, and a motivated agent to represent them in Real Estate sales or purchase.

 

We have had considerable experience in property sales mainly in the rural region over the last 25 years and would rate Terry at the top of the list in our experience.

11Peter and Irma

"Right from the onset, Terry began with an attitude, which I can only describe as truly professional. Terry continued his task to sell our home with a sincere and honest desire to find the right buyer.

12 Terry and Denise

We declined two reasonably good offers on the property before accepting a third that we felt was close to our line in the sand and that we were quite happy with. He never tried to undersell the property in any way and it was always left up to us to make a final decision.

 

We found Terry to be totally professional in all aspects with the highest level of integrity and would recommend him to one and all.

13 Gary and Sharyn

My son and I wish to commend and congratulate Terry Williams on the very sensitive and  professional manner in which he conducted the sale of our home and property. I had dealt with other real estate agent firms prior to Terry Williams and found them insensitive and unsympathetic considering our situation. 

 

Terry Williams conducted the sale in a manner showing that he cared about our predicament and carried out the sale so that my son and I felt comfortable.

 

After the sale of the house Terry did not stop there, but took that extra step to investigate and relentlessly search for a suitable home and property for my son and I. We eventually found a very comfortable home, so my son and I wish to thank Terry very much for his support in a caring and sensitive manner.

 

I as a purchaser and vendor wish to make it known that if I have any further sales or purchase requirements, Terry Williams will be the first person I contact.
