Davina was very supportive and communicated with us regularly throughout the campaign. Davina really goes above and beyond for her vendors. Thank you Davina for your hard work and commitment and for making the whole sale process stress free." - Mark & Michelle (Greenhithe) Davina is the ultimate professional, from adding decor items at the photo shoot to ensure the house was presented in the best possible light to daily contact to ensure we were happy with what was happening and when. I can honestly say that Davina works for the vendor, and works extremely hard! Our house was on the market for a total of 14 days before it was sold prior to auction, the resulting offer made me shout for joy and cry tears of happiness, and I can honestly say that no one but Davina could have achieved that! If you are lucky enough to choose Davina as your agent, she is a diamond... congratulations! - Victoria & Kees Van der Eijk Davina is a rare and fantastic find as an agent; exceptionally professional, friendly and warm with high energy she does precisely what she says she will do. Davina sold our house for the amount we asked for in the time frame we requested and drove a very, very successful and busy campaign to ensure we had maximum coverage during the sales process. Extremely considerate of our needs as a family, Davina’s knowledge and support made what could have been a fairly stressful process easy and pleasant. No stone was left unturned as she found the right buyers for our property. Davina offered considerable extra advice which helped us set the home up to be attractive. Her communication throughout the process was detailed, accurate, honest and frequent – we always knew precisely what was happening. A combination of Davina Kennedy as the agent and Andrew North as the auctioneer is truly a perfect storm of energy and professionalism. We recommend Davina wholly, fully and completely. You simply won’t find a more caring agent. Ngaio & Jeff We had very good experience selling our investment property with Davina. She is very well organised. Her enthusiasm is infectious. She is persistent. No hurdle is too big for her. She always has a plan B, C or D. I would recommend Davina wholeheartedly. I know I would avail her services again. - Henri & Josephine Christiaan Without doubt, I can highly recommend Davina for either selling or purchasing a home. Davina has gone out of her way on numerous occasions, meeting me at short notice for viewings, helping with builders, rental appraisals and mortgage advisors. Davina is proactive, energetic and has a positive 'can do attitude' and comes highly recommended. - Claire. We met with agents from various other real estate companies and Davina stood out as not only the most professional and knowledgeable, but also considerate and aware of our needs as a family. Davina lives up to her advertising of being, ‘Refreshing, Enthusiastic and Driven’. We found her to be all of these qualities and more. She communicated excellently and was always at the other end of the phone when we needed her. We achieved a price which exceeded our wildest dreams and can now look forward to a brighter future. We would not hesitate to recommend Davina. - Abby & Ed Collett “Davina is somebody you will want to know, particularly if you are selling property on the shore. Right from the start she instils confidence with her professional appearance and manner. Davina is trustworthy and amicable and so easy to work with. Her communication skills are tops, she kept us informed every step of the way. Her efforts regarding presentation of our property were amazing. Davina’s determination, skills, attention to detail and hard work, will always be a winner for her and got us a great result. We would not hesitate to engage her again to either buy or sell property for us. Harcourts you have a Gem in Davina!” - Jennifer & Evan Innes-Jones, Murrays Bay "Fantastic is how we would describe Davina!! We have recently purchased a property in Campbells Bay and sold our home of 16 years in Murrays Bay, both through Davina. She has made what is usually a nerve wracking experience almost a pleasure! Davina is extremely professional, highly organised, her attention to detail is amazing, she is well researched, always positive and kept us updated at all times. Nothing was ever a problem to her. It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with Davina and we are thrilled with the outcome and can't thank Davina enough for all her hard work. We would highly recommend Davina to anyone buying or selling property". - Ron and Christine Gawith, April 2015 “We have had experience with many agents over the years, particularly in the last 12 months, and believe that Davina is in a completely different class when it came to her professional attitude and in particular her focus on helping buyers appreciate the key selling points of our home. We found Davina to be very professional, a great communicator and very focused on achieving the right outcome for us. She is a credit to the profession and ultimately she achieved what no-one else could - allowing us to pursue a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our family”. – Wendy & Shane Davina’s optimism, efficiency, professionalism and honest appraisals have impressed me. I knew I could trust Davina’s judgment. Her respectfulness towards us and her empathy for our trying circumstances (moving home for a large family with time against us) have made a stressful time more bearable. I do not hesitate in recommending Davina as an excellent and reliable estate agent. – Dr C Donald "Davina is a star! She achieved amazing results in a very short time selling my mother's property. Her hands on, enthusiastic, friendly and thoroughly professional approach made the whole process easy and enjoyable". – Suzanne Taylor We were recently in the market looking for a new home, we approached many agents during this time and the agent that impressed us the most was Davina Kennedy. Davina's professionalism, energy, enthusiasm and diligence impressed us. Davina was in regular communication and worked hard to try and find us a new home that fitted our brief. Sadly we didn't end up buying with Harcourt's however we would happily recommend Davina to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. - Tanya & Sean Parsons Davina made it so easy for us when purchasing our dream home and we can't thank her enough! She was very efficient and nothing was too much trouble. Davina not only helped us with purchasing our new home but was very supportive of us selling our own property. She made the whole experience of purchasing a new home really enjoyable and we really appreciate her professionalism, assistance and the support we received. – Rachel & John
