Testimonials Meeting Heather and dealing with her was an absolute pleasure. Her attention to detail and superior communication was a pleasure to experience. We cannot talk highly enough about the high level of service we received from Heather. Heather is extremely helpful, her genuine down to earth personality and drive to get the best result was commendable. If you are dealing with Heather you need to know that you are dealing with someone who is honest and whom you can trust. We trusted Heather and she sold us our dream home! We are more than happy to recommend Heather to anyone who is looking at buying or selling. Michael and Julia Kilian To Whom It May Concern we first met Heather back in late 2015. We had expressed a desire to sell our home but the timing was not quite right at that stage. As the months went by Heather would occasionally visit making a courtesy call to indicate that she was still there and keen to assist us. We kept turning her away and it was a year before we were ready to contemplate a sale. At that time, we selected Heather to represent us as we liked her patience, politeness and the persistence she had shown over this time. Selling a home can be stressful but Heather did her professional best to ease us through the process of an ‘expressions of interest’ marketing campaign. This method we were unfamiliar with but Heather was more than optimistic of achieving a very positive outcome. This was achieved in early March, 2017 after a vigorous three week marketing program. We were very happy with the result and the price that was achieved. We would highly recommend Heather's services to any other potential vendors who may be contemplating selling. Lindsey and Peter D - Auckland I engaged with Heather as a property purchaser and found the overall experience very positive. Heather is totally professional in her dealings. She has an exceptional work ethic, very high personal ethics and is very buttoned down on process. Communication is top notch with Heather on the job; she responds in a very timely manner 24/7, does what she undertakes to do and really goes the extra mile to make sure that all details are taken care of. As mentioned, I was the purchaser in the transaction, I found Heather was always courteous and respectful, and was definitely a strong advocate for her vendor client. There is no doubt in my mind that she would be totally dedicated and tireless in achieving great results as a sales agent. Louise on behalf of the Davis Family Heather Doran Chappell did a great job in helping my Family Trust purchase a Commercial Office Property in Queen Street, Central Auckland. From my initial enquiry, Heather was prompt in providing me with all the necessary information, arrange viewings, and ensured a quick turnaround on feedback from the Vendor. On a personal level, Heather's warm and friendly style certainly helped with my negotiations. I would certainly use Heather again as an agent for any future property transactions. Tim M – Auckland Central Dear Heather after having previously marketed my home through another reputable agency, of which the outcome was completely unsuccessful, this resulted in a feeling of despondency over the selling procedure. I was then advised by a friend to approach Heather Doran, a Real Estate agent who came with high recommendations. Engaging Heather in the marketing of my property was the best decision I made in accomplishing a successful outcome. Her approach to marketing my property was very professional, as she outlined all the pros and cons of exactly what a buyer could expect, thus eliminating any surprises for potential buyers. This resulted in Heather obtaining a successful sale, a result that I am very pleased with, and most grateful for. In my dealings with Heather I have found her to be very professional, helpful, and of very high integrity. I therefore have no hesitation in recommending Heather Doran to anyone who is contemplating the buying or selling of a property, no matter where it is. Peter T - Orewa Dear Heather Mary and I would like to thank you very much for selling our commercial property at Custom Street, Auckland Central. We were very impressed with your professional, enthusiastic, and friendly approach to the quick sale of our shop. We were particularly pleased with your regular emails and phone calls which kept us fully informed of progress at all times and we were very happy with the sale price. We would highly recommend you to anyone we know who may want to sell a property. Best wishes for continued success in your Real Estate career. Again thank you very much. Warm regards Mary & Tony O - Whangaparaoa Hello Heather Peter and I would like to thank you for the fantastic effort you put into marketing our house at Stillwater, to enable us to purchase our new home and lifestyle in Whitianga. We have ”history” as they say, with you selling our North Shore home… achieving over the listed price and working above and beyond to reach settlement when the “ cash out clause” was invoked. Naturally you were our “Agent of Choice” to market our Stillwater home, again achieving a great price along with another miracle when the “cash out clause” was invoked on our purchase of our home in Whitianga. The stress levels were rising in our house, but your calm, professional, confident approach in both situations enabled us to move forward with joy. Thank you for listening, really listening to us both as we came to grips with this huge decision to move to Whitianga. We both would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and family, who are about to market their properties. Wishing you continued success in the market place. Regards Fiona & Peter M - Stillwater Dear Heather we were delighted with the marketing and sale of our property in Orewa. Heather knew the market well and was able to give us realistic and unbiased values. She walked the tightrope of getting the best price for the property, and at the same time encouraging the purchaser that the price was fair. Heather had the additional problem that we do not live in New Zealand, and it was a relief for us to have her manage all facets of the sale. Heather coped well with the tricky period of due diligence and the nett result was a clean sale. We would not hesitate to use Heather again for the sale of future properties. Barbara & Kim G – Orewa To whom it may concern I have enjoyed very much Heather’s involvement in the sale of my property. I am an elderly widow and Heather has treated me with love and respect. What could have been a very traumatic few weeks, has instead been a very smooth transition. Heather is “THE BEST” in her profession. Elisabeth H - Waiwera
