"Julie Shand from Harcourts Birkenhead, sold our property within a 5 week window after it had been listed with another Real Estate agency for a period of 4-5 months where there was no offers at all. Margaret and I were at our wits end when we listed with Julie, she reinforced us with positive feed back through a very difficult period in the market. I found Julie to be very professional, hard working and communicated well through the whole process. A lot of hard negotiation got us over the line and now Margaret and I can now look forward to our new home in Orewa". Jim & Margaret Towler "Julie truly understands how to successfully market and more importantly sell a house.  We were able to trust in her professionalism and market knowledge and she was always available when we needed to ask questions.  Her commitment to us as her clients was outstanding and she truly delivered on her promise to achieve the best price for us. We would certainly recommend her as someone who will successfully guide you through the selling and buying process".  C Atford and B McKinney "Julie Shand is an extremely professional, hard working and diligent real estate agent.  We entrusted her with selling a property that we knew would set a new bench-mark for Beach Haven and Julie came through with good results.  Julie has experience, expertise, a kind manner and humour all of which we found reassuring and helpful".   Diana Goulding & Brian Wilson "The amount of time, effort and professionalism Julie gave to the campaigning of our home was undoubtedly a key to her successfully selling the property. We were impressed with her strong marketing plan, attention to detail, commitment to finding the right buyer and the extra personal features of her marketing plan went beyond what we would have ever expected. A wonderful job and would recommend her without hesitation." Chris & Liz "Julie Shand recently sold my home for an excellent price. Over the four week of marketing she was always helpful, professionally knowledgeable & relentlessly hardworking. Her advice and commitment proved invaluable and I never doubted that the property - my most precious asset - was in the safest of hands. I wholeheartedly recommend her services to any prospective seller." Barbara “We would like to thank you for your incredible support and professional manner in which you have operated during our last 5 property transactions. It is wonderful to find an agent who we felt worked for us 100% at all times. Your friendly manner and enthusiasm makes you a pleasure to be around and deal with, not only for us, but the buyers who looked through our properties. We believe that this is why you have such great results.” Mark & Sonia “Julie marketed and sold our home which was on the market for a considerable amount of time with another real estate agency. As it is a premium home it was only going to be of appeal to a particularly discerning purchaser. When we made the decision to allow Julie to market the property, she was relatively new to the real estate industry, but we were impressed by her professionalism and desire to transact our sale. Julie sold our home within a very short period at a time when the top end home market was in a downward trend price wise. The fact that she was able to not only facilitate a quick sale but also ensure we received our asking price was greatly appreciated and clearly illustrated her ability and attention to detail. After the experience we had with Julie, I would have no hesitation in recommending her to prospective clients.” Mike
