Selling a house is stressful at the best of times, selling during COVID lockdown levels 4 and 3 even more so. Andre and Cheryl’s positive and professional approach during this period was much appreciated.

We met Andre and Cheryl when looking to purchase a new property, we liked their follow up approach, although we didn’t purchase. For this reason we shortlisted them, and after reviewing a few client appraisals and having a subsequent onsite meeting, we selected this small boutique firm. Of course we had the normal questions regarding local versus not so local agent, big firm versus small firm, etc. On the surface all agents propose a similar service, we went with our gut feel, feeling we could work with this lovely couple.

They took the time to understand us and our love for the positive features of our house. These were captured well in the promotional material. The advertising text, photos, and videos were excellent. We did all the staging ourselves, however Andre and Cheryl were able to provide great presentation advice on what to focus on, giving us clear goals during preparation.

They were able to guide and listen to us during the whole sales process, with what turned out to be a very short sales period, but resulting in a great sales price and even exceeding our original expectations.

We would highly recommend Andre and Cheryl to anyone looking to sell their house and wish them well in the future.

Selling a property is a big deal in someone’s life, and Cheryl and André understand this.  They take the time to get to know you, as the vendor, and nothing is too hard for them. They are both willing to go the extra mile, and in so doing make the whole process of selling feel safe and exciting. Cheryl and André are professional and personable.  They are awesome communicators. 

We are so very pleased that we were able to work with them and feel very happy to highly recommend them to anyone who is wanting to put their property on the market. Would we work with them again in the future?  Absolutely!

L & A Reynolds - 2D Foch Avenue, Three Kings

We’ve been involved in many property sales but this sale was extra special for two reasons.  First, because the ultimate recipient of the sale proceeds is the Auckland City Mission and secondly because of the incredible professionalism, care and sheer hard work that André and Cheryl have undertaken in this sale.  It has been our pleasure to work with André and Cheryl on this very special project.

L Byrnes Whiting & S Whiting - 6 Kensington Avenue, Mount Eden

Dear Andre and Cheryl,

We will always be grateful for the outstanding price which you achieved for our property at auction. Much of that we put down to the superb advice you gave us on the things we needed to do to the property before it went on the market to ensure we obtained the best price possible.  Your advice was spot on. We also think the advertising campaign which you mounted for our property was superb as was the way that you handled buyer enquiries and fostered excellent buyer interest throughout the campaign. This is our second time selling with you and once again you delivered an exception result.  We would wholeheartedly recommend your services to anyone who’s thinking of selling their property.

D Hickson - 8/63 Clyde Road, Browns Bay

Cheryl and Andre are amazing to deal with. They made the whole experience of selling my first house enjoyable and the most important thing was a successful sale. Loved the feeling of a boutique business looking after us in every way possible. Thumbs up Andre and Cheryl, it was a pleasure!

G Lee - 41 Armadale Road, Remuera

Andre & Cheryl, you have been absolutely amazing to work with and we couldn’t be happier with today’s awesome result. You expertly guided us through every step of the way with seamless execution. Thank you so much for everything.

“We had watched Andre & Cheryl successfully market many homes in the area over the years and their engaging manner, knowledge of the area and passion for their work made the choice easy.”

We recently decided to sell our Sandringham family home after 27 years. It was a daunting prospect but choosing to list it with Andre & Cheryl was the best decision we made. We had watched them successfully market many homes in the area over the years and their engaging manner, knowledge of the area and passion for their work made the choice easy.

They are a great team. Always very professional, with complementary strengths. Andre has an engaging, personable manner and his positive energy creates excitement amongst buyers over the property. Cheryl has great attention to detail and a creative eye which helps ensure the property is marketed at its best. She was regularly in contact with potential buyers keeping them enthused and addressing any questions they may have had. A winning team.

Throughout the sales process, including going into another COVID lockdown, they kept us really well informed of the prospects and the feedback from potential buyers. As we were out of town during the sales process, when we faced some obstacles e.g. Electrical inspections, building inspections, Andre & Cheryl were more than happy to meet workmen onsite and manage this process. Andre even mowed the lawns in our absence!

Andre is also a very experienced auctioneer so when it came to having the auction onsite, Andre’s personal knowledge of the property and the potential buyers coupled with his great energy meant we achieved a great result on the day that far exceeded our expectations.

If you are looking to sell your house, we have no hesitation in recommending Andre Coppell & Cheryl Crane. They will do a superb job and deliver a great result for you.

What stood out about Andre & Cheryl was their persistence, sound real estate knowledge and above all their outstanding salesmanship.  They are energetic, focused and highly attuned to the market.”

After 24 years we decided to sell our family home in Mt Eden (Grammar Zone), we interviewed several agents including Andre Coppell & Cheryl Crane from Custom Residential Ltd.  As a Sales and Marketing GM responsible for appointing sales personnel within our company, Andre & Cheryl really had to impress to win our business and they did. What stood out about this team was their persistence, sound real estate knowledge and above all their outstanding salesmanship.  They were able to demonstrate how they had consistently negotiated some of the highest sale prices in the area, with an impressive 20-year track record of sales behind them.

Throughout the 4-week period, Andre & Cheryl conducted the sales process with the utmost integrity, skill and confidence.   We felt they worked extremely hard behind the scenes ensuring every buyer was on target for our auction and kept us informed every step of the way. Their interpersonal skills with the buyers was evident building trust and rapport which went along way to ensuring we had maximum attendance at the auction and that the bidders were primed ready to give it their best shot on the day. The resulting auction conducted by Andre as the Auctioneer was a great success and we obtained a sale price that we were very happy with.

Andre and Cheryl are the ultimate real estate sales professionals – energetic, focused and highly attuned to the market.  They were always friendly and easy to deal with and offered great after sales service as well.  We would not hesitate to use them again and highly recommend them to any perspective seller wanting the best sales team working for them.

“Andre and Cheryl have a strong reputation in the area and a proven track record of achieving great results.”

It was an easy decision choosing Andre and Cheryl to market our property in Mt Eden. Firstly, they had a strong reputation in the area and a proven track record of achieving great results.  Secondly, they took the time to really understand our motivation for selling and the challenges we were facing.  Andre and Cheryl came up with a marketing plan tailored to our requirements, budget and target market.  From the beginning it was clear that they would be 100% focused and driven to achieve the best result for us.

In the lead up to and throughout the marketing campaign Andre and Cheryl were tireless. They put in huge amounts of time outside of the actual open homes working with potential buyers and keeping us fully informed on all aspects of the campaign.

The end result was successful sale of our house, the resulting price a reflection of the hard work they put in.  I will definitely be recommending Andre and Cheryl to friends and family considering selling their property.

N Watson - 28 Elizabeth Street, Mount Eden

“Andre and Cheryl are the definition of passionate realtors, they went above and beyond to help us sell our home”

Cheryl Crane and Andre Coppell were a great team to work with.  They are the definition of passionate realtors.  They went above and beyond to help us prepare, market, and sell our home.

They are relentlessly enthusiastic about the Mt Eden area, and promoting it’s many attributes.  They provided sage advice when needed and are happy to talk through the difficult issues that arise during a campaign. We found them extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy and reliable. We would recommend them to anyone who is looking to list in the area; they will give it their all.

“Andre and Cheryl are the ultimate professionals, their uniquely distinctive styles are super complimentary and their personable approach endearing.”

We had seen Andre and Cheryl’s ‘Style’ at a few Open Homes over the years so when it came time to put our Villa on the market there was no question who we wanted for the job. Right from the get go we felt comfortable and in great hands. Andre and Cheryl are the ultimate professionals, their uniquely distinctive styles are super complimentary and their personable approach endearing. They take you through the myriad of ‘stuff’ associated with selling your home in a common sense understandable way, so you’re at ease in querying or challenging information as necessary.

Our Villa was indeed in need of a makeover but our dilemma was whether to invest in bringing it up to marketing standard, or adopt a ‘as is where is’ approach. Andre stepped us confidently through the pros of a ‘makeover’ not only making us realise the merits of this approach, but also providing a list of potential trades people and suppliers and the ones we chose delivered on all levels and the feedback from Open Home attendees certainly backed this up making our heats sing.

Cheryl is a Ninja Negotiator ~ the skills she brings to this pressure cooker arena must never be underestimated.  Taking your home to auction is emotionally hard, yet on the day Cheryl’s negotiation skills brought both vendor and buyer together to a mutually  ‘happy’ agreement which was indeed outstanding especially as we knew we were in more of a buyers market.

If you are embarking into the ‘selling’ arena, want the best advice and skills in your corner (seriously backed up by experience and results), if you’re willing to listen and input into the process, if you want a totally professional and personable experience then our recommendation is ‘don’t go past Team Andre and Cheryl’  they deliver with integrity, style, professionalism, depth of knowledge, and complimentary skills coupled with a sense of fun and endearment which is just Magic!

“Right after we sold our house, we recommended you to our friend who’s looking for a top real-estate agent.”

A BIG THANK YOU for all your guidance and support in selling our house. We understand as sellers it’s a challenging time of the property cycle. However, with your dedication and uttermost professionalism, we were able to beat the market’s expectation and get the house sold only 3 weeks on the market! We have always wanted to write a testimonial for your service to show our appreciation, as well as, help other nervous sellers to find one of the best real estate agents in Aotearoa: Team Andre & Cheryl!
We gave her the following reasons:
1. Your impeccable professionalism
We loved how clearly you were able to explain the very complicated marketing strategies to us the first time seller. We loved all your great cost-effective tips on how to improve the property. We loved your detailed marketing reports to help us get a better grasp of the reality of the market. We loved your total respect for our preferences even when that might not the same as yours.
2. Your integrity
We loved the absolute honesty you uphold that showed in your efforts to make the most truthful presentation of marketing the house.
3. You are truly trying to get the best price for us.
We understand our house sale would not make to the Herald for selling for a huge profit or exceptional price, however, we know it has been marketed by the very best in the industry and has found a deserving buyer who will appreciate and enjoy the house. That makes us sleep peacefully at night without all the “what if’s” after it’s gone.
Thank you again for making a rather daunting and exhausting experience relatively easy and less nerve-wracking!

“They are a highly experienced team with their finger on the pulse of the market who get the very best sale prices for their clients”

We decided to sell our Mount Eden property in March this year after finding another house that better suited our needs (an Andre and Cheryl listing). We didn’t need to spend very much time at all before deciding to list with Andre and Cheryl, for the Mount Eden area it was obvious.

Andre and Cheryl are very well known throughout the Mount Eden/Sandringham/Kingsland areas and would have the bulk of the quality property listings in these areas. They are highly professional, competent and also very skilled negotiators with a very good sense of the real estate market so it was an easy choice for us to list with them.

Within just 2 weeks of putting our house on the market, Andre and Cheryl had lined up a pre-auction offer that was good enough to start negotiations, and a few days before auction day they had managed to negotiate a significant increase in the offer amount that was sufficient for us to cancel the auction and proceed with the sale.

Andre and Cheryl were extremely meticulous and diligent with their weekly reports, with phone calls after each open home and then a visit with a detailed written report early the following week.

They are a highly experienced team with their finger on the pulse of the market who get the very best sale prices for their clients as well as being extremely personable and easy to deal with.  We would therefore have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone thinking of selling their house.

A & M Carline - 21 Elizabeth Street, Mount Eden

“Andre and Cheryl are without a doubt the best agents we have ever dealt with, they were professional, caring and had our complete trust.”

We had the pleasure in selling our Villa in Ponsonby with Andre and Cheryl from Bayleys Real Estate.  What set Andre and Cheryl apart from the rest was that they stayed with us throughout our lengthy process of research, decisions, renovations, landscaping, presentation and sale. It was 10 months from when we first met them at one of their open homes to our Auction sale and although we didn’t engage them until 6 weeks before the sale they were in touch over the whole 10 month period to advise us and help us all the way. Their dedication and care shined through.

Andre and Cheryl are without a doubt the best agents we have ever dealt with, they were professional, caring and had our complete trust.  They even kept in touch with us after we had moved to see how we were getting on in our new house,  so thank you so much the both of you for doing a brilliant job. Your service was second to none!

A & P Oatley - 83 Norfolk Street, Ponsonby

“Andre and Cheryl were so open, honest, professional and incredibly motivated to get us the best price possible.“

We’re so glad we decided to go with Andre and Cheryl for the sale of our home.

Andre and Cheryl were so open, honest, professional and incredibly motivated to get us the best price possible. We’re recently been to a ton of open homes and met all kinds of agents – many of which stood around and didn’t engage us at all and never bothered to follow up. After every open home Andre and Cheryl ran for us, they were able to tell us the names, motivation and interest level of all the prospective buyers and constantly followed up to maintain high levels of interest.

Furthermore, they have a huge amount of experience in real estate and this really showed through for us when a couple of unexpected complications arose around the unitary plan and the outcome of a builders report. Andre and Cheryl dealt with everything effortlessly – kept all the prospective buyers informed and at auction day we had six bidders in the room who helped us fly past our reserve.

We’ll definitely be in touch with Andre and Cheryl again the next time we’re selling.

S & M Craig - 34 Eldon Road, Mount Eden

“Andre and Cheryl represented our needs with the highest of standards and without a doubt, the best agents we have ever used.“

Russell and I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Cheryl and Andre to anyone thinking of selling, they are highly dedicated agents and their integrity is second to none.

Having transferred numerous times around the country we have used many real-estate agents through the years. Andre and Cheryl represented our needs with the highest of standards and without a doubt, the best agents we have ever used. Not only that they are both very personable, they are very professional with all dealings and what we were also very impressed about was the constant contact throughout the whole process. Andre kept my stress levels at bay with his great sense of humour. We would have no hesitation in referring anyone interested in selling through Andre and Cheryl , knowing they would provide top level support and most importantly get the house sold!

We recommend Andre and Cheryl without any hesitation They are the best example of how a Real Estate Agent should treat their clients.

S Smith - 9 Truro Road, Sandringham

“Andre and Cheryl are truly committed to getting the best possible outcome for their clients. We have never met a more professional, kind and committed team.“

We recently sold our family home in Mt Eden with Bayleys. It was an easy choice to have Cheryl and Andre act as our agents for the sale. They had watched us slowly and painstakingly renovate our home over the last few years, popping in from time to time to see how we were going. Having renovated a home themselves, they know how much work and effort went into making this house a home. We have always found them both to be incredibly easy to talk to and knew that if the day came when we were going to sell that they would be our first choice.

From the beginning they were there to give us guidance with the utmost commitment and integrity. They both work tirelessly for their clients, with Cheryl making sure that we knew how potential buyers were responding to the house and, Andre analysing the buyers and making the auction flow like an absolute dream. We were incredibly nervous on auction day but Andre and Cheryl made us feel at ease and were able to use their experience and skills to make the whole process as stress free as possible.

We would absolutely recommend Cheryl and Andre to anyone who wants to sell their home. They are truly committed to getting the best possible outcome for their clients. We have never met a more professional, caring and committed team. Thank you so much for all of your hard work guys. We truly appreciate all of the long hours that you put in for us!

P & C Curtis - 21 St Albans Avenue, Mount Eden

“Andre and Cheryl always act with integrity and they work hard to make sure that you, as a vendor, get the best result.“

We bought and sold recently, Andre Cheryl were the agents in both circumstances.  Being overly optimistic we bought before selling!  As agents acting for their vendor with highly strung pushy buyers (us) in the mix, we could see they were always clearly focused on achieving the best result for their client. Once we had bought we immediately asked them to sell our property (which was utterly unprepared for sale).

Andre came around and told us exactly what to do and provided us with some contacts.  It was a hard job to get it done but the tradies all managed to get things done in time.  To add to all the stress and panic, our selling campaign was just at the start of a market change. Our potential buyers dropped by the wayside like flies as their houses didn’t sell at auction leaving us (whilst in the middle of an overseas trip) with one bidder at auction and two conditional bidders. We were feeling nervous about the potential outcome but Andre and Cheryl did their magic and were able to cleverly read the situation using their experience and skills to make it happen – they hit our target price!

We would absolutely recommend Andre and Cheryl. They always act with integrity and they work hard to make sure that you, as a vendor, get the best result. A true testament to their style and professionalism.

J Tringham & C Bateman - 22 Pine Street, Mount Eden

“Andre and Cheryl work perfectly and seamlessly together. As local residents, they bring a deep knowledge of the area and a big commitment to working for the client.“

We chose Andre and Cheryl to market and sell our property in Sandringham.  After some poor experiences in the past, we were very wary about real estate agents – so Andre and Cheryl had an uphill task to gain our trust and confidence from the start!  We sat down with them as well as other agents and it soon became clear that our initial gut feeling and preference for them was right.  As a ‘combo’ Andre and Cheryl work perfectly and seamlessly together. As local residents, they bring a deep knowledge of the area and a big commitment to working for the client.  They also each bring their own individual skills.  Cheryl is absolutely forensic in her approach, we never had to chase for responses and were never left wondering what was happening.  Andre complements this with his friendly demeanour, combined with his equally forensic approach to analysing the buyers and the auction process.

Our past experiences with other firms felt us leaving ripped off and wondering who they worked for. Cheryl and Andre never once gave us a feeling that they were working for anyone but us. We never felt pressured to sell at any cost, and they listened to everything we said and answered all of our questions honestly. They never faltered in their commitment to update us with their weekly updates.  Having the auction next to the glistening pool under the blazing February sun was a brilliant decision – the competition’s ‘pack em and stack em’ approach, couldn’t be more contrasting whereas our auction felt like an ‘event’ that everyone wanted to attend.

Many people think selling a house is just about finding the biggest company or the lowest commission rate – I used to think like this.  But Andre and Cheryl proved me wrong on so many fronts.  They were 100% committed to getting us a result, and in the right way – their end game was not simply to sell the house, take their cut and run.   In conclusion, we could not be happier with Andre and Cheryl, the price they managed to obtain has secured our family’s future.  After a long, arduous and exhausting renovation, it was the perfect end to our time in our Sandringham home.  I would recommend them to anyone who not only wants to sell their home, but who wants it to be done superbly. Thanks guys!

J & S Boow - 14 Truro Road, Sandringham

“We were very happy with Andre & Cheryl’s efforts on our behalf and would have no hesitation recommending them.”

In February 2017 our house was sold by Cheryl & Andre of Bayleys Real Estate for a record price in our street.

We had been engaged with them for the previous 4 months as we prepared the house for sale, developed and implemented a marketing plan, hosted open days and eventually sold by auction.

We found them at all times to be both professional and courteous in all our dealings, and were prepared to offer us advice as to what we could do to the property to maximize the sale price.

We were very happy with their efforts on our behalf and would have no hesitation recommending them to anyone looking to sell their house.

D & W Hay - 45 Pine Street, Mount Eden

“The services which Andre and Cheryl provided in the successful marketing and sale of our home at auction were nothing less than superb.“

We have no hesitation in recommending Andre Coppell and Cheryl Crane of Bayleys Real Estate.

The services which they provided in the successful marketing and sale of our home at auction were nothing less than superb.

They were particularly good at telling us what changes to make to the house to make it more marketable and, most importantly of all, when the sales campaign got underway they kept us fully informed about buyer interest in the property and feedback on price. This helped us set a realistic reserve for the auction which, thanks to Andre’s highly skilled auctioneering, was exceeded by the winning bid by almost $100,000.

Andre and Cheryl could not have done a better job for us and we will always be grateful.

D Hickson & M McGillivray - 55 King Edward Street, Sandringham

“We were drawn to Andre and Cheryl’s proven track record, their experience, their approach to the selling process and their desire to work strongly on our behalf to achieve the best possible outcome.”

We would have no hesitation in recommending Andre and Cheryl to people who are looking to sell their home. In selecting Andre and Cheryl initially, we were drawn to their proven track record, their experience; their approach to the selling process and their desire to work strongly on our behalf to achieve the best possible outcome.

They did not disappoint and this was despite the market cooling off just as we went to market. They were excellent communicators; were very analytical in terms of the approach to take with potential buyers and were able to respond pragmatically to some of the potential roadblocks that buyers posed.

Cheryl took the lead role in the negotiation to our eventual buyer and demonstrated her prowess to achieve a price we were very happy with.

During a time which can be stressful and invasive, they were very thoughtful and just so easy to deal with at all times. They never put us under pressure. And the additional help that they offered and provided post sale was really appreciated and a reflection of their style. We would definitely use them again.

J Davis & M Ross - 42 Ellerton Road, Mount Eden

“Their passion, extensive sales and marketing skills, professionalism and industry experience are clearly the reason why Cheryl and Andre are the top sales agents for our area.”

Selling your beloved home is one of life’s most stressful experiences and that is why it is so important to choose the right real estate agent.

From the moment we met Cheryl and Andre at an open home we knew they would be the right team for the job. We were won over by Andre’s enthusiastic, warm and friendly outgoing nature and Cheryl’s cool, calm and focused demeanor.

We cannot speak highly enough of them, from start to finish they exceeded our expectations well and truly. Every step of the process was well planned and we were kept fully informed throughout the whole procedure and even after the sale.

Their passion, extensive sales and marketing skills, professionalism and industry experience are clearly the reason why Cheryl and Andre are the top sales agents for our area and because of this were able to achieve a “new street record”.

Thank you so much Cheryl and Andre for your dedication and hard work, we look forward to continuing our new friendship with you both.

S McMillan - 78 Halesowen Avenue, Mount Eden

“We were won over by their warmth, experience and exceptional track record. This dream team displayed impressive professionalism and dedication.”

After deciding to sell our much-loved Villa in Mt Eden we met with several local agents and selected Cheryl and Andre immediately – won over by their warmth, experience and exceptional track record.

From the get-go, this dream team displayed impressive professionalism and dedication. They welcomed our involvement and nailed the marketing generating over 170 viewings over the 21 days it was on the market.

Despite the huge amount of work Cheryl and Andre put into the campaign, their energy and enthusiasm never wavered – a clear indication they are passionate about what they do. They worked tirelessly to get us the result we were after and achieved another “street record” in the process. +

Working with Cheryl and Andre was enjoyable and we look forward to a continued friendship. If you’re considering taking on this expert team, we say ‘go for it!’

S Allen & - K Walker - 18 Pine Street, Mount Eden

“Cheryl is an extraordinary negotiator and Andre is an excellent auctioneer!”

I recently sold my house in Balmoral, Mt Eden with Cheryl and Andre as the Real Estate Agents.

I can’t speak highly enough of them.  The marketing plan they put together was excellent. Both Cheryl’s and Andre’s advice on the presentation of the property was spot on, the photos were great and it brought the right group of buyers through which led to a successful sale shortly after auction on the day.

Cheryl is very focused, very determined, very experienced and able to navigate all the ins and outs of the seller and potential buyers successfully. She is an extraordinary negotiator, and of course with these two you get a double the benefit because Andre is an excellent auctioneer if you are auctioning your property.

I think the Auckland market has changed a bit and at the moment is not quite as much in the favour of sellers as it has been for the last couple of years.  I think Cheryl and Andre dealt very well with this situation and I would use them again any time.

T Gattung - 21 Eldon Road, Mount Eden

“We were very happy with our decision to work with them, finding them to be extremely professional, incredibly knowledgeable about the market, and really down to earth to deal with.”

Andre and Cheryl really stood out from other real estate agents we met when looking to sell our home in Huntingtree Avenue. We were very happy with our decision to work with them, finding them to be extremely professional, incredibly knowledgeable about the market, and really down to earth to deal with.

They went above and beyond, even before we had engaged them, offering us guidance about other properties we were looking at prior to the sale of ours. Subsequently, they gave us excellent advice on what we needed to do in order to ensure our house was in the best possible shape it could be to go to market. They expertly guided us through the open home process, calming our nerves during what was for us a pretty stressful time. We were also very impressed with the detailed feedback they provided after each open home.

The end result was well above what we expected, and we believe much of that can be attributed to not only the fantastic marketing material they put together and their hard work during open homes, but also the way Andre and Cheryl conducted the auction – they really know what they are doing, and achieve fantastic results.

We would highly recommend them both to anyone looking to sell their property.

J & T Mead - 23 Huntingtree Avenue, Sandringham

“Cheryl & Andre’s ability to go above and beyond expectations, using their fundamental understanding of the sale options got us the result we were after.”

Andre and Cheryl successfully sold our home in late 2016. We took our time to find the right agents and after careful consideration they were chosen because they have an excellent understanding of the local area.

They are a talented and clever duo, working together to achieve results. Cheryl was lovely to deal with and no request was too big. She took the stress out of the process for us.

What impressed us the most about this team is their ability to go above and beyond expectations, using their fundamental understanding of the sale options to get us the result we were after.

We would recommend using Andre and Cheryl for the sale of your house.

D & E Nash - 4 Goring Road, Sandringham

“An enthusiastic, dedicated team who were highly focused on selling our home”

Cheryl and Andre are highly professional agents with sound industry experience and great communication skills.  They have in-depth knowledge of the local area and provided us with a great service.  Having Andre as our auctioneer was an additional bonus, giving us the opportunity to hold our auction on site and discuss strategies with them both.

They were an enthusiastic, dedicated team who were highly focused on selling our home. Following each open home Cheryl updated us immediately and provided weekly reports focusing on the status of potential buyers and our marketing strategy.  We always felt we knew what was going on.

We found Cheryl and Andre to be open and honest with us and they ensured we understood our legal obligations.  They are very personable and helped make a potentially stressful experience rather exciting.

We believe we chose the right team to achieve the best price for our home.

P & S Pragassen - 53 Shackleton Road, Mount Eden

“An outstanding result from an outstanding team. We trusted their advice. We invested in it and obtained a record result!”

Andre and Cheryl are insanely awesome, just like the result they gave us on our property. Why wouldn’t you use them? Seriously, they know what they’re doing, they gave us great pre-marketing advice which resulted in us achieving a stunning outcome well beyond our expectations.  They are fun, entertaining and genuine people who know the local market well. This proved a huge advantage over other real estate agents as they knew they had serious buyers keen to look at our property before we even signed the listing contract.

Their advice in getting our home ready for sale both inside and out was invaluable. The time and effort we put in to doing the things they suggested was hard work but well worthwhile as they brought us two pre-auction offers after the first weekend of open homes! The results speak for themselves.

Andre’s skill as an auctioneer was also a drawcard for us and his calmness and ability to extract bids was skillful and genuine.  Cheryl’s attention to detail and her easy management of the process shone through in both the marketing and photography of our home. We couldn’t have asked for more.  Together Andre and Cheryl are a great high energy team. They have fantastic communication and marketing skills and they managed to make what could have been a very stressful time in our lives selling our family home of 14 years  fun and easy.

An outstanding result from an outstanding team. We trusted their advice. We invested in it and obtained a record result!

D & L Smith - 95 Marsden Avenue, Mount Eden

“Their expertise and attention to detail meant that we achieved a great result when selling our home. They earned our trust and delivered on what they said.”

Wow, we had the pleasure of working with the dynamic duo, the dashing Andre and switched-on Cheryl. Their expertise and attention to detail meant that we achieved a great result when selling our home with them. Excellent communication and reporting – they made us feel comfortable with the whole sales process. They earned our trust and delivered on what they said.

Andre’s positive happy nature and brilliant auctioneer skills is complemented with Cheryl’s calmness and her preparedness to go that extra mile, that’s why they get top results. Our property sold under the hammer achieving the highest price in the street!

Thanks to Cheryl and Andre, we have no hesitation in recommending them if you want to get the best result when selling your home.

Cheryl & Andre immediately impressed us with their warmth and their understanding of the housing market. Our decision to place our trust in them to sell our home was one made with complete confidence.

Andre & Cheryl have complementary strengths. Andre has a lovely personable manner, positive energy and a generosity of spirit which is unfaltering. His background as an auctioneer distinguished him further (a duty which he performed admirably at our auction). Cheryl’s creativity, precise attention to detail and experience as a professional photographer made our marketing material shine. She is highly organised and an excellent communicator.

Together, Andre and Cheryl are a strong team. At all times, they were highly professional, realistic and supportive through a process that many have described as fraught. Even though the ultimate outcome was the sale of our much-loved home, the unexpected consequence was the relationship we developed with Andre and Cheryl. This is a relationship that is based on a high degree of trust. They are both astute and well-attuned to the feedback from buyers. We trusted their judgement and listened to their advice, which resulted in a sale under the hammer above our reserve price.

We consider the time and care Andre & Cheryl took – in the process of selling of our home – to be outstanding. They are a special husband-wife team who care about their clients. They work hard, with integrity. We respect and highly recommend them.

“A fantastic local team who do what they and get results”

Forget the rest, deal with the best. Cheryl and Andre are a fantastic local team in the real estate business who simply do what they say and get results.

Always on time, great communicators and extremely thorough, they were a joy to deal with when we sold our home. They kept us informed every step of the way and offered genuine and practical advise. They also worked very hard everyday to keep everything on track like a precision machine.

I whole heartedly recommend their services and would recommend them to others without hesitation.

“André and Cheryl’s combination of professionalism and complementary strengths are about providing A+ Quality service. We trusted their judgment and listened to their advice, which resulted in a sale well above our reserve price.”

André and Cheryl did a BRILLIANT job during our campaign, with the end result proving that we chose the “BEST” Residential Sales Consultants and Auctioneer to market and sell our property.”

From our first meeting with Andre Coppell and Cheryl Crane, we were impressed with their integral professionalism and warm cultural awareness. They came well prepared with sales information about properties sold in the area and them living locally gave us confidence we could trust them 110%.

Cheryl’s keen eye for detail and creativity created marketing material that made our much loved home, (a do-up), look more appealing. Throughout the 4 week process Andre and Cheryl provided us with honest feedback from the buyer(s) and realistic expectations about the price. Cheryl is highly organized and a strong communicator coupled with André, who has a warm and personable ability to put people at ease. Together they have a lot of positive energy and worked extremely hard right up to the 11th hour.

Andre and Cheryl’s combination of professionalism and complementary strengths are about providing “A+ Quality” service. We trusted their judgment and listened to their advice, which resulted in a sale well above our reserve price. We have no hesitation to using them again and highly recommend them to any perspective seller.

“We can genuinely recommend André and Cheryl to anyone looking for great estate agents they can trust to sell their home.”

Paul and I would like to thank you for the amazing service we received from both Andre and yourself upon listing with you to sell our home in Greenlane.
As you know, our past experiences were not good. This time we can genuinely recommend you to anyone looking for great estate agents they can trust to sell their home. We found you both to be very engaging, professional and fun! Your feedback was always quick and informative and you made us feel a part of the whole process.
Thanks again for your hard work and dedication working with us to gain a great result on the sale of our home.

“Andre and Cheryl make a great sales team, they’re friendly, honest and have many years of experience negotiating; we highly recommend them.”

We first met Andre and Cheryl at an open home in Ellerslie as they were getting ready to leave.  They were extremely welcoming and had no problem staying around longer to allow us to view the property.  We were both impressed by their energy and the good vibe they put out. Although the property didn’t suit us we were astounded at the price they achieved for that area and decided to have them over for a chat regarding the marketing of our Mt Eden property.

Over the years we have bought and sold a number of properties with other real estate agencies and decided this time to use Andre and Cheryl of Bayleys whom we felt would do more than just go through the motions.  We weren’t disappointed, they worked hard and covered every base, were extremely informative in regard to all the potential buyers and very professional and thorough.

On auction day, Andre conducted the auction with confidence and enthusiasm, and Cheryl’s negotiation skills shined through, needless to say we were very happy with the outcome.

Andre and Cheryl make a great sales team, they’re friendly, honest and have many years of experience negotiating; we highly recommend them to anyone considering selling their property.

“André and Cheryl are professional agents in all respects, they exceeded our expectations and I am very happy to recommend them to anyone thinking of selling their home.”

We chose André Coppell and Cheryl Crane to sell our family home in February 2015 and pleased we did.
The thought of selling a house can be daunting and especially selling your family home of 9 years, takes emotions and fears to a whole new level. Because we were relocating out of Auckland there were extra stresses, so we were very thankful to have two top agents that were experienced and confident, that we could trust to take control of the whole process.

André and Cheryl were amazing to deal with right from our initial meeting where they discussed the process and gave great logical advice to ensure our home looked its best. They were continually in touch with us and held weekly meetings giving feedback from open homes, right through to auction where they coordinated a successful on site auction, while all along calming our nerves.

In reflection we found it refreshing that André and Cheryl remained true and were always upfront not changing the story after we had signed.

André and Cheryl are professional agents in all respects, they exceeded our expectations and I am very happy to recommend them to anyone thinking of selling their home.

“Not once did we question André and Cheryl’s commitment to achieve the best price possible for us, and they did!” 

I had not been through the auctioning process in New Zealand before so I was on new ground.  I interviewed three Real Estate Teams and asked them many questions.  I was immediately impressed with André and Cheryl, they came prepared for this first meeting with loads of information and spent three hours with me, talking through each aspect of the selling process.  This level of service continued through the whole campaign with Cheryl having an incredible eye for detail and André installing confidence with his knowledge, not only in real estate but also as an auctioneer.

Both André and Cheryl helped with advice on dressing the house for the open days and even lent us a few items to fill in those difficult corners!  Both my husband and I having been self-employed for most of our lives and understand how critical good service is; we felt we were given a very personal service.  They went beyond what was required and for that we are very grateful.

I would be more than happy for my phone number to be given out to anyone who is considering working with this exceptional team. Not once did we question André and Cheryl’s commitment to achieve the best price possible for us, and they did. It was a pleasure working with them both.

Thanks André and Cheryl you helped made the process so much easier, knowing you were on my team.

“Andre and Cheryl are confident and professional sales people that offer a personalised quality real estate service. We have no hesitation recommending them.”

We recently sold our property with Andre Coppell & Cheryl Crane of Bayleys Mt Eden. Prior to listing we spent some time visiting open homes and observing the agents active in the area. After interviewing 3 agents, it quickly became apparent that Andre and Cheryl were the right people to choose.

Right from the early stages they were upfront about values and price expectations, they were enthusiastic about our home and how they could help us present it for sale which made it more desirable to the market and they offered sensible advice on the timing to sell, whereas most of the agents were keen to get us on the market quickly.

The auction campaign ran smoothly from start to finish. Any minor hiccups along the way were ironed out and managed in the interest of getting us the best result. With 3 weeks of open homes and activities, they worked hard right up to the 11th hour with last minute inspections and preparing the buyers for auction. We could see they were genuinely working for us and working hard.

On auction day I couldn’t be present, however we had total confidence in Andre and Cheryl and when the phone call came afterwards we were ecstatic with the outcome – the sale price was outstanding!

Throughout the whole process their honesty and integrity stood out in every way. They always listed to us and were respectful of our thoughts and ideas. Andre and Cheryl are confident and professional sales people that offer a personalised quality real estate service. We have no hesitation using them again or recommending them to our family and friends.

From the outset Cheryl and André were motivated, committed and professional.  Together their combined talents helped us achieve a great result at auction.”

We highly recommend André Coppell and Cheryl Crane.  They made selling our house a wholly positive and rewarding experience.

From the outset they were motivated, committed and professional.  Their communication was excellent throughout the marketing phase, providing immediate feedback after each open home and then talking us through a succinct written report during the following week to make sure we were aware of buyer feedback and well connected to the process.  We always felt they were working in collaboration with us to bring about the best outcome as well as make the process a smooth and well managed one.

Our marketing material was carefully thought through, with Cheryl’s skills and eye for detail making the photos and presentation immaculate.  They were always available to speak with and, with Charlotte in a steady support role, followed up efficiently on any actions.

André, with his easy manner and honed sales skills, has the ability to put people at ease while building their interest, and as our auctioneer he was entertaining and highly effective. Together their combined talents helped us achieve a great result at auction.

Thank you André and Cheryl.

Michelle & Mark - 41 Waiohua Road, Greenlane

André & Cheryl are a highly experienced, formidable team who are supported by a reputable agency who get things right first time.

We recently listed and SOLD our Sandringham home with André Coppell and Cheryl Crane of Bayleys Real Estate.  It was confirmed very early on in the process that we had made a wise decision to work with this highly experienced and formidable team who are supported by a reputable agency who get things right first time.

André and Cheryl have a unique understanding of the property market, are highly capable and knowledgeable in every aspect of the process.  A key difference is that they take the time to put in extra effort for all sides.

We really appreciated their approach, level of communication, advice, time and energy, network of potential buyers and genuine care which allowed us to obtain a rewarding outcome.

We would absolutely recommend that you consider working with Andre and Cheryl; they really deliver, can be trusted and are great fun too!

“I knew they were the agents I wanted to sell my house. They are very professional and deliver results”

Once I decided to sell my property in Burnley Terrace the next big decision was which agent would I choose to do this as I believe an agent can make or break a deal.  Having met Cheryl Crane and Andre Coppell at open homes and been very impressed with their enthusiasm and local knowledge they immediately came to mind.  We met discussed options and I knew they were the agents I wanted to sell my house.  It was a really easy process, 3 weekends of open homes, they kept me informed all the way through on buyer feedback and always made an appointment for viewing outside open homes. The result was a sale at auction at a price I am very happy with.

I have really enjoyed working with them both, they are very professional and deliver results; I strongly recommend them to anyone selling.

J Summers - 59 Burnley Terrace, Mount Eden

“Hardworking and great with their communication, it made the whole process easy.”

I cannot recommend highly enough the wonderful level of service and support from Cheryl Crane, Andre Coppell and their assistant Michelle Hicks who together make a great real estate sales team.  Professional through and through, they kept things moving forward smoothly towards the sale of our Mt Eden unit at Auction. Very hardworking and great with their communication, it made the whole process easy from start to finish.

I would be happy to recommend them to anyone wanting to sell their property.

S Bernstone - 2/59 Milton Road, Mount Eden

“What a fantastic job you guys did!”

With us being overseas, and many time zones away, it was a bit of a logistical exercise co-ordinating everything. You took this all in your stride and managed a well executed campaign to get the house well presented, on the market and finally selling.  Thanks for all the extra effort you put in to achieve this great result. As I have been out of NZ for a number of years and was not up-to-date with the latest market trends, I also appreciated your insight and good advice.

M & J Siegenthaler - 64 Woodside Road, Mount Eden

“They are such a formidable team, knowledgeable, highly ethical, patient and a joy to work with; we completely trust them.”

I first met Cheryl Crane 7 years ago when my husband wanted to sell his beaten up old 1920’s bungalow. Cheryl was instantly helpful and enthusiastic about the property which I wasn’t expecting.  She was completely unfazed when it came to taking on the marketing and open homes, searching for the right buyer.

Now, 7 years later Cheryl and her partner Andre Coppell have just sold our home in Mt Eden (which Cheryl originally found for us) and her enthusiasm and professionalism is exactly the same.

Andre not only has a larger than life personality but is a man with tremendous industry knowledge. Together they’ve been such a formidable team, knowledgeable, highly ethical, patient and a joy to work with.  We felt they’ve gone beyond the call of duty on so many levels long before we’d even listed our property on the market.

Throughout the marketing they kept us informed and guided us in every decision which led to a good auction result and selling under the hammer with a price we were very happy with.  We completely trust Cheryl & Andre and have no hesitation in recommending them to any perspective seller.

 “They were fun and engaging to deal with and exuded enthusiasm for my property!

As a long term resident in Paice Ave, I have had the opportunity to observe real estate activity in the area for more than 30 years.  When it finally came time to sell my own property I had to make a choice amongst the array of agents out there as to whom I wanted to represent my home.  With some knowledge of real estate having been an agent myself long ago, I knew what a critical decision this was.

After interviewing agents I chose Andre Coppell & Cheryl Crane of Harcourts as my representatives for several reasons.

They had achieved a miraculous price in our street and I’d seen other high sale prices for homes in the area they’d sold which really stood out.  They were local and had great knowledge about the neighbourhood which was priceless.  The offered a complete package being agent and auctioneer backed by a larger organisation with international presence.  Finally they were fun and engaging to deal with and exuded enthusiasm for my property.

Andre and Cheryl are far from your average real estate agents and this was evident in our dealings with them.  It’s not hard to see why they sit in the top percentile of agents in their industry.  We cannot be more pleased with their terrific service and outcome for us; we have no hesitation in recommending them to perspective sellers.

B & M Balfour - 33 Paice Avenue, Mount Eden

“We would whole heartedly recommend them to anyone who wants to sell their home and retain their sanity at the same time!”

We initially came into contact with Andre at an Open Home as potential buyers.  He made an immediately positive impression with his enthusiasm and animation!  After this initial contact, both Andre Coppell and Cheryl Crane were fantastic at keeping in contact with us and ensuring that we knew about potential properties on the market.  We valued their input and experience so much that we actually asked them to come and see some other properties for sale privately to give us their thoughts and professional advice.  We certainly saw them as trusted advisors as much as anything else.

So, when it came time to sell our own home, we had no doubts whatsoever about who we wanted to work with.

From the very outset of the process, we knew that we were in safe hands.  As a duo, they have an amazing balance of attention to detail and efficiency with a sense of fun and energy.  They complement each other brilliantly and for us they tick all the boxes.

During the sales process, we felt that we were a priority for them at all times and that gave us a real sense of peace, knowing that everything was taken care of and was running according to plan.  It really was so much easier than we had envisaged and I think that’s very much due to the fact that they just took care of it all for us and took that pressure away.  Even when the photographer arrived an hour early, Cheryl was on site with a broom helping us tidy up!

Cheryl and Andre are a dynamic team who not only get great results, but make the whole process of selling your home as stress free as possible. We would whole heartedly recommend them to anyone who wants to sell their home and retain their sanity at the same time!

K & A Orr - 78 Gribblehirst Road, Sandringham

“We can highly recommend this hard-working dynamic team, they are so incredibly passionate about what they do!”

Cheryl Crane & André Coppell were appointed by us to market and sell our Mt Eden property. We were initially drawn to their expert knowledge of our street and the surrounding areas. We had been particularly impressed by the high prices that they had recently achieved for their Vendors at auction.

Throughout the campaign, we got to know Cheryl & André well and we were confidently assured by their professionalism that the sale of our property would be a success.

From the outset, they worked together as a team, keeping us informed of the progress of the marketing at all times. Their commitment to us- the Vendors is commendable- and something that we had not experienced during our previously two house sales.

Our property attracted phenomenal interest! We were absolutely blown away by the numbers attending the Open Days- and our backyard was overflowing with interested groups on Auction Day!

Cheryl & André worked hard to achieve the perfect result for us- and we were as pleased for them- as they were for us with the higher than expected result.

We can highly recommend this hard-working dynamic team to any prospective Vendors wishing to achieve top dollar for their property, as they are so incredibly passionate about what they do!

“From the very start they went the extra mile and really worked hard”

After numerous approaches from other agents and companies we decided to list our Sandringham property with Harcourt’s Andre Coppell and Cheryl Crane as they were genuinely local and had been most straightforward, direct and realistic when they came round to assess our property.  The advice they gave us on areas we could work on preparing the house for photos, open homes and sale was invaluable, and most importantly tailored to our needs and budget. Though they had sound ideas on what could potentially be done they took time to listen to us and consider our situation, this doesn’t always seem to be the case with other agents we have encountered. From the very start they went ‘the extra mile’ and really worked hard, even though they were selling a number of properties simultaneously we always felt we had their complete attention and focus when required.

The marketing, open homes and reports, auction and negotiating were handled very professionally and Andre and Cheryl were on hand at all times to explain the process and offer quality advice. During the short time our house was on the market (less than 28 days!) we were able to see how they work as a team, putting the needs of their clients first and playing to their strengths throughout. We were very happy with the results and would unhesitatingly recommend Andre Coppell and Cheryl Crane to sell your property, especially having now seen the often indifferent, wavering standards of their contemporaries.

J Pinckney & I Chan - 13 Patterson Street, Sandringham

“Andre and Cheryl did a wonderful job marketing and selling our home.”

From the first time we met there was instant rapport; we felt they were genuinely interested in us and our home and getting the best price for us.  They were clear on their approach and how they liked to work with their clients and they followed through.  They were always professional, but also very personable and easy to work with.

Andre and Cheryl gave us clear and informed advice on the marketing and presentation of our house.  It was an intensive three week campaign with plenty of people viewing each week.  Then they achieved the results we wanted at auction.

They have excellent sales and marketing skills and we particularly appreciated the feedback we got each week following the open homes.  We felt their follow up with potential buyers was thorough and we felt informed and confident about what was happening which was important given we weren’t in Auckland.

We had confidence in Andre and Cheryl’s ability and the advice that they gave us.  They saw the big picture, but also made sure that the details were looked after.  Cheryl and Andre are an enthusiastic, committed and hardworking team.  It was great having Andre as our auctioneer as he knew our property well and each of the buyers.

We are extremely happy with the outcome they achieved as we got well above the price we were looking for in the timeframe we wanted.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Andre and Cheryl to others contemplating selling their home.  They are a great team backed up by the larger Harcourts organisation.

J Haswell - 16 Burnley Terrace, Mount Eden

“The sale price Andre & Cheryl achieved for me was simply outstanding!”

Deciding which agent and company I was going to engage to sell my property was an extremely important decision for me.  My home was quite unique and I needed an agent that stood out from the crowd, someone who I felt confident would be able to market the home with passion and sales flair, and have the caliber to deliver a price not yet achieved in the area.

After deliberation over many agents I finally chose Andre Coppell and Cheryl Crane from Harcourts Eden/Epsom for several reasons.

They were genuinely interested in my property and what the outcome would be for me personally. They took the time to explore every aspect of the home and how to best go about selling its features and to which buyers.  As locals they were extremely knowledgeable about the area and were passionate about it which I felt was important when talking to buyers.

What impressed me most was they really went the extra mile from start to finish, they were hands on in every aspect of the sale, making sure the marketing was done right, the presentation, photos were of high standard, open homes were conducted by both of them personally, and the buyers were looked after in every way leading up to auction day.   They have many contacts in the industry and because of that I was delighted to feature complimentary on the front page on the NZ Herald Homes.

Andre and Cheryl treated me with the utmost respect and courtesy; they were extremely professional as well as friendly and personable at the same time.  I have no hesitation in recommending Andre and Cheryl to perspective sellers, the service I experienced firsthand was number one and the sale price they achieved for me was simply outstanding!

C Daniel - 21 Eldon Road, Mount Eden

I would like express my gratitude and thanks for the excellent job done marketing and managing the sale of 13 Royal Terrace, Mt Eden

I recently completed extensive renovations on the property and towards the end of the project was approached by several real estate companies looking to market the property.  I was impressed with Cheryl & Andre’s high level professionalism, integrity, work ethic, and passion for delivering results.  The 3 week marketing campaign was a huge success that brought high numbers through the open homes. Great communication throughout the process, sound and considered advice during the campaign.  The auction at the Harcourts office was an outstanding success that achieved a sale price that exceeded all expectations.  A great result!  Thanks again,

I would certainly recommend you to anyone thinking of selling.

T Rowe - 13 Royal Terrace, Mount Eden

I could not have chosen any better than Andre and Cheryl to market and sell my Epsom home. In the early stages of preparing the house for the market, I was very impressed with the professional yet friendly and genuine manner in which Andre and Cheryl advised me of how to best present the house. There was never any pressure to list and it was many months in the preparation stages. Andre and Cheryl were very generous with their time, getting to know the property and the type of buyer it would best suit.

They confidently yet sensitively stepped me through the process all the way. I felt positive and reassured that the marketing was being expertly handled. On auction day Andre did a marvelous job auctioneering and Cheryl’s negotiating got us the best possible price. Their experience, enthusiasm and very engaging personalities are a winning combination. I would happily recommend Andre and Cheryl as an excellent choice for any one wanting to sell their home.

K Riley - 30 King George Avenue, Epsom

We used Andre and Cheryl recently to sell our house in Sandringham, we were impressed with the results and they worked extremely well together. They have a relaxed, helpfully manner which made it easy to relate to them, and we appreciated the constructive feedback to get the property to a high standard ready for open home.

Their professional approach meant we could focus on preparing our house as everything else including the marketing was taken care of.The consistent contact throughout the process, including running the auction, meant that there was only one point of contact throughout; they knew our property well, and it was obvious that they understood the appeal of a character property and its target market.

We were glad that we had Andre and Cheryl working for us.  Highly recommended!

Dave and Tania - 10a Kiwitea Street, Sandringham

In November we decided to put our Epsom bungalow conversion (45a Pah Road, Epsom) on the market, and chose to list with Cheryl Crane.

We had attended an open home run by Cheryl and were impressed by her friendly, approachable manner. We were keen to sell with a view to then being able to purchase a larger property to accommodate both ourselves, our son James and also a sibling for him in the future.

We had attempted to sell privately prior to listing with Cheryl, which we soon discovered was not as straight forward as we first thought. In fact it was this experience which has made us much more appreciative of all of Cheryl’s work in regards to negotiating and working with us to get the best result possible. Cheryl maintained a positive and realistic attitude towards the prevailing market conditions we were facing. We are so pleased to have sold our property in a declining market, and we are now looking forward to taking the next step into a bigger and better property. We have stayed in contact with Cheryl who we know is always available to offer advice and has offered to help us with the buying process if needed.

We have no hesitations in recommending Cheryl to anyone looking to buy or sell property.

L Richardson & H MacDonald - 45a Pah Road, Epsom

We listed our Kingsland property with Harcourt’s Agents Andre Coppell and Cheryl Crane who work as a team, in November 2011.  Together we worked on a marketing plan based around the joint decision to auction our property, in the January/February period, culminating in a very successful Auction result, with our property selling well above our set reserve.

The service we received from Andre and Cheryl was exceptional! They are truly a high-caliber team. Their knowledge of the local market and their ability to manage prospective buyers, was fantastic.  They kept us well informed throughout the campaign, with quality reporting detailing the numbers of interested parties, along with potential buyer’s important comments and feedback.

I particularly enjoyed Cheryl’s assistance and eye for detail in the preparation of our home, for the photos and the open homes.  Knowing we wanted top dollar we were very open and invited honest suggestions on how to maximize the potential of the home “grooming” it for presentation to the market.  I feel the co-operation and attention to detail was a key element in the successful presentation of the home for the public, and for the photographs.

An important element for me was the rapport that I had from the early stages of making the decision to sign a sole agency to Andre and Cheryl through to the auction.  As many home sellers can attest often real estate agents can make a fuss of you and your property; promising you the earth price wise…until you sign the sole agency…then the property gets talked down.  To our delight, this was not the case!  We found the Team work of Andre and Cheryl to be honest, sincere, and their appraisal and comments to be realistic.

As I prepared the house for market.  I found Andre to be confident, but not pushy, fun but not frivolous, and most importantly a good reader of people.  While Andre was “pitching” to market this property, I learned he had a very good sales record, based on years of experience and the ability to successfully gage potential buyers level of interest and, in my opinion Andre has an uncanny knack for knowing just how far a buyer is willing to go, to gain a new property.  Added to these qualities, Andre is an experienced auctioneer and we were keen to have his passion for our property communicated through the auction process.  As mentioned above we were not disappointed!!

In closing I would not hesitate to recommend Andre and Cheryl to help you in this life changing move.  Also we found the Harcourts office, with their global reach and local savvy to be professional and helpful, helping us with a great price for our advertising campaign and the other pre-auction details.

F Carlisle - 60 Second Avenue, Kingsland

Just a short letter thanking you for all your hard work you put into selling our house.  I was put in touch with you by my sister whom you had represented in selling her house.  She was impressed with the way you handled hersale and highly recommended you to me.  You asked for a few things to be changed in the house for the betterment of the house sale and everyone one worked.  You showed boundless energy and enthusiasm at the open homes, follow up calls and our meetings.  We feel because of your efforts we got the best price we could for our house and extremely pleased. We have no hesitation in recommending you to any prospective clients thinking of selling in the future, especially if they want to get the best possible result.

T & M Johnson - 21 Kingsway Avenue, Sandringham

It’s my pleasure to be able to recommend CHERYL CRANE to prospective vendors as a highly competent real estate agent.

Cheryl recently completed the sale of my house at the above address. I found her to be highly professional, punctual, motivated, and honest at all times. We faced a few minor obstacles throughout the marketing programme, however Cheryl remained positive and dedicated, with the result being a great sale price!

Cheryl’s ongoing communication was also fantastic, and I felt informed every step of the way. Selling a house can tend to be a little stressful, but Cheryl certainly made the process that much easier!

I wish Cheryl all the best, and hope to have the opportunity of working with her again.

A Vidovich - 12 Mount Smart Road, Royal Oak

I’m writing to thank you for the wonderful job you did with the marketing and sale of my house at 19 Forbes Street in Onehunga.  From our first conversation, to the night of the auction, to the actual settlement, you were a total professional.

We were on a very tight time frame to get the house on the market, yet you organised all of the marketing, the photo shoot and the house “staging” in record time.  I was impressed with how you handled the open homes and made yourself available for additional showings to interested prospective buyers.  And I thoroughly appreciated the verbal and then written feedback on the success of the open homes each weekend.

You always made me feel like I was your most important client and that there were no “dumb questions.”  I appreciated how you kept me informed of both the process and the progress of the auction and sale.  And you always did what you said you were going to do, and in the time frame you promised.

On the night of the auction you were brilliant in how you handled the final negotiation, always representing my best interests at every step.  Never once did I feel that your interests in the transaction came first.  And Andre did a fabulous job in conducting the auction and guiding the negotiations, as well.  You make a great team.

Through the entire process you were patient, informative and responsive; and you operated at all times with grace and ease.  The depth of your expertise was evident at every step of the way, and you willingly shared your knowledge with me.

While selling one’s home can be very stressful, I feel lucky to have gone through the process with you.  I couldn’t have wished for a better partner from beginning to end.  I would be happy to sing your praises to any prospective vendors.

Thank you for such a positive experience and a terrific outcome!
