I purchased from Lorraine years ago and enjoy the smaller agency with the personal touch.
We I came to sell I found Lorraine's wealth of experience and advise of what I should do was invaluable.
I can't thank Lorraine enough for her guidance which lead to a successful transaction. Her calm reassurance made me feel I was in excellent hands at all times. I am singing her praises to everyone.
I listed with Lorraine because I preferred the smaller Company approach. I really like her attention to detail. Lorraine made a lot of effort to overcome my reluctance to homestage my property and it was one of the reasons for me getting a great result
We had a positive experience buying through you 10 years ago and because we have also used you over another property we obviously used you again when we moved on. We appreciated the local feel of the Company and personal attention given and that is wasn't solely about getting the most money out of us or giving us false promises/hope. We didn't feel like we were one of multiple other clients and will share our positive experience with others.
Lorraine knows the Hutt Valley Real Estate market inside out, the result of being in this business for many years. One of the things she did very well was to identify potential buyers who were looking for a property like the one we were selling.
We were very thankful she had the skills and diligence needed to winkle out potential problems and give us the guidance we needed to avoid issues we had not even thought of. Whenever anything needed to be followed up she would get onto it straight away which gave us confidence in the way she did business. We had complete confidence in the advise she gave us which resulted in our house being sold at a very pleasing price.
We knew of Lorraine's knowledge and proven sales record especially on the Western Hills. We liked the small personalised, long established Lower Hutt Business. We were very happy with her marketing plan and her negotiation skills achieved a very satisfactory outcome. Lorraine's experience and dedication showed and we appreciated her immediate followup and detailed summary of open home visits and visits of buyers during the week. Instead of the selling of our home of 50 years being a traumatic experience we couldn't have been happier with the process.
Lorraine was known to me and I trusted her judgement therefore there was no hesitation to my listing my house with her She gave me meaningful advise which I followed regarding what to do prior to listing regarding barriers to purchasers and helpful hints to achieve a great result. The final outcome was exceptional and she Lorraine worked it so hard. Following her advice I estimate I achieved at least $100K (probably more) in excess of what I expected. I strongly recommend working with Lorraine (sooner rather than later) who will guide you through the process.
I found Lorraine excellent to deal with compared to others, she was more relaxed, less flashy and feels authentic. From the moment we meet her, we felt we were in good hands throughout the process and have made a new friend through the process.. I would certianly be in contact with her in the future if we decide to ever move.
I had used Lorraine previously to purchased and she kept in touch therefore we used her again when we came to sell. We felt that Lorraine understands us and we were not just another sale. We really valued Lorraine's hands on attitude toa
assist. We feel her input and suggestion to us pre-sale helped us achieve an amazing result in selling. We really appreciated the way Lorraine conducts open homes with her husband Barry who welcomes buyers at the door leaving Lorraine free to assist buyers with any of their queries.
We have had a long association and previous successful results from Lorraine who delivers above and beyond the call of duty assistance in preparing homes for sale. I would be surprised if her competitors could provide such comprehensive service and advise. Her sound practical advise resulted in a quick sale on terms we were very happy with.
