What my clients say

What can we say? Kelly did it again for us.  – Gill & Ashley Johnson, St Heliers
Kelly works with such enthusiasm and achieved the result which we all wanted. Our relationship with Kelly has become like a working friendship over the last four years and we have been so happy to work with her again as part of a team. The relationship is open and honest and we trust everything that she has to say. Sometimes even if it's not what we wanted to hear we trusted her explicitly. We thank Kelly so, so much for all of the hard work that she has put into reaching our sale and her hard working team (Karina) who also has been so approachable and friendly and helpful. Thank you both very much! We are so never going to "try out" another agent again!!!! Top notch! That's all we can say she is wonderful with a heart of gold! What other agent would stock up your fridge on your return from holiday!!! (Gill & Ashley Johnson – Kaimata Street, St Heliers)
Kelly Midwood provided an exceptional service in the marketing and sale of my property. – Diane Partington - Briody Terrace, Stonefields
She was encouraging and supportive and with her help I felt that I achieved a very good price for my property. I would recommend her to anyone selling a house in the Stonefields or Eastern Bays area as she knows the market in these areas really well and will work hard to make sure a good result is achieved. (Diane Partington -  Briody Terrace, Stonefields)
We found Kelly excellent to work with she was professional thorough and enthusiastic, which in turn lead to a great result for all parties! We would happily recommend and do business again. – John & Katrina Caldwell - Mt Taylor Drive, Glendowie
We were extremely happy with the service Kelly gave when selling our home. – Graeme Page - Kauriki Terrace, Stonefields
The estimated sale price was accurate and better than we had initially hoped. Her communication with us and her enthusiasm throughout the sales process made selling our home a lot less stressful than is often the case when selling property. We were very satisfied in all respects and would definitely recommend her services to others. (Graeme Page -  Kauriki Terrace, Stonefields)
This is the third property transaction we have done with Kelly. The result Kelly achieved for us in our most recent sale was fantastic. She was always quick to respond to any queries we had and her knowledge of the Eastern Bays is a real plus too. A very hard working agent. – Geoff White - Sierra Street, Glendowie
End to end professionalism, from first call to final sale, enthusiastic, clear on process and what happens next, excellent communications, someone who should be showing everyone else how to do it. – William Seymour - Hartland Avenue, Glendowie
Our experience with Kelly has been a very positive one. – Fran Elliott - Scoria Crescent, Stonefields
She is highly motivated and professional, and knows the market extremely well. She says what she means and means what she says. We have bought and sold several properties in the past 7 years and we found Kelly to be the most in touch with the market place. she is very realistic and in most cases spot on regarding the market appraisal of the home she is selling. A highly professional lady who knows her business. such a joy to experience professionalism in the industry. (Fran Elliott - Scoria Crescent, Stonefields)
Kelly inspired us with her enthusiasm and thoroughness in exploring all the avenues for marketing. Reporting back through the campaign was excellent as was her availability. We achieved the result first proposed and overall would recommend Kelly above any other agent we know. – Owen Sprosen - Riddell Road, Glendowie
Kelly Midwood sold our home in record time and at a record price. – Michelle Wainhouse - Burden Lane, Stonefields
She always worked in our best interest and kept us fully informed. We engaged Kelly because of her knowledge of the market and the fact she lives in our area. She had successfully sold our neighbours property who initially recommended her and we had visited one of her open homes. Kelly is a true professional who still keeps her feet on the ground while managing multiple listings. Thanks Kelly for a job well done. (Michelle Wainhouse - Burden Lane, Stonefields)
One very exceptional young lady, I have always called her. – Elaine Nagle - Remuera Road, Remuera
We have written a card to Kelly and I think this survey says it all. One very exceptional young lady I have always called her a No Mess Charlie she is there to do a job and so just applies all the tools she needs to satisfy the customers’ requirements. Barfoots should be very proud to have Kelly working for them, I would have loved to have had staff of her quality when I was a Licensee in Rotorua. great work Kelly and keep in touch (Elaine Nagle - Remuera Road, Remuera)
Kelly was my 1st choice for an agent to sell my home – June - Birman Close, Half Moon Bay
Even though I lived out of area for her, I knew I would receive professional and personal attention through the whole process. Deciding to sell is a major decision, followed closely by the list of small jobs to be completed and ticked off before the Barfoot & Thompson lock-box is attached to the front door. Kelly discussed and explained the benefits of replacing my kitchen and also the effect staging would create. Also choosing the professional photographer who captured my home as it really was.  It took a little longer than I expected to complete my list of small jobs however, Kelly was always reassuring I would still benefit from marketing during the month of July. This year the sun has kept shining even in July. My tropical garden looked beautiful the renovations and staging complimented everything else and to the market we went. Not only did we sell, Kelly listed, marketed, pre-auctioned and sold with me moved out and settled within 2 1/2 weeks. Kelly you are a true professional, you never promise what you can not deliver and your attention to detail and follow-up daily with calls of encouragement make stand you a star, you certainly stand head and shoulders above the rest from all others. (June - Birman Close, Half Moon Bay)
Our experience with Kelly has been a very positive one – Gary and Fran - Scoria Crescent, Stonefields

We have bought and sold several properties in the past 7 years and we found Kelly to be the most in touch with the market place. She is very realistic and in most cases spot on regarding the market appraisal of the home she is selling. A highly professional lady who knows her business. Such a joy to experience professionalism in the industry. (Gary and Fran - Scoria Crescent, Stonefields)
Kelly has been helpful, kind, professional, lovely, honest, patient etc etc... – Karina - Walmsley Road, St Heliers
with us through what I'm sure has been a "challenge" at times (we were very nervous sellers!). We did really appreciate all the time and attention she gaves us. She is a true professional that has accurate and solid knowledge of the current real estate climate. A pleasure to deal with and a true professional. (Karina - Walmsley Road, St Heliers)
Kelly was absolutely outstanding and such a professional – Peter & Keryn - Barbarich Drive, Stonefields
You can tell that Kelly is an expert in her field and she has the perfect attitude and work ethic to get results. Kelly is very a warm, caring and "straight up" individual (which we loved) and she doesn't "dilly dally" around. Kelly knows what she is talking about and she always has her clients best interests at heart. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kelly to any of my friends, family and work contacts. The process from start to finish was seamless and so easy! Plus we achieved an amazing result in a very short period of time - 2 very happy clients. (Peter & Keryn - Barbarich Drive, Stonefields)
Trust is the first word that comes to mind when describing Kelly's services – Sumit Oza and Family - Barbarich Drive, Stonefields
Before we decided to sell our first ever house in NZ, we had read quite alarming stories albeit a smaller representation about real estate agents in NZ. And after our first meeting, I had already told Kelly that no matter who brings the offer to me I want her input in the transaction. And she responded well. She has been genuine and quite accommodative to our needs and concerns. Her approach to both the parties has been very transparent and fair. We have been very happy with how Kelly has handled the sale of our house and i would not hesitate to recommend anybody who wants to list their house with Kelly, especially in Stonefields. (Sumit Oza and Family - Barbarich Drive, Stonefields)
Great service from Kelly Midwood – Max & Lana Pearce, Stonemason Avenue, Stonefields
From the start to the end of the sale process we found Kelly Midwood to be an astute Real Estate professional. Her thoroughness and prompt attention to every aspect was faultless, resulting in an excellent sale in a very short time. Her back up staff worked to the same high standard., and Barfoot’s systems and procedure’s we also rate very highly. Lana & I would not hesitate to utilise Kelly’s services again. (Max &  Lana Pearce, Stonemason Avenue, Stonefields)
Kelly has great local and industry knowledge. We always felt that we were in good hands – Kirke Campbell & Melody Ashford, Maskell Street, St Heliers
From the beginning we found Kelly to be contagiously enthusiastic. Along with the profusion of effort she puts into her role there is a great local and industry knowledge. Kelly was ready to assist with very considered helpful encouragement, guidance and emotional support. Kelly did her best to minimise the discomfort of selling our property. We always felt that we were in good hands. We would thoroughly recommend Kelly to anyone contemplating selling their home and should the situation arise again Kelly would be our first port of call. (Kirke Campbell & Melody Ashford Maskell Street, St Heliers)
Based on previous positive experience, when I chose to sell my property in Kohimarama I did not hesitate to telephone you – Michael D Fann
When I chose to sell my property in Kohimarama last year I did not hesitate to telephone you, based on previous positive experiences with you, to offer you the opportunity to market my home. Whilst I am sure you were confident that you would get this opportunity you did not take it for granted. The market research you did prior to our first meeting and the presentation you made to me promising what you would do for me were both First Class. What’s more important is you fulfilled your promises. The functional elements, photography, advertising, marketing flyers, signage, open days, and feedback from potential purchasers was spot on. And the communication throughout the entire sales process has been terrific!  (Michael D Fann)
We really liked dealing with an agent that was prepared to disagree with us – Ray & Sharon Verrall
We would just like to write and offer you a big Thank You for all your expert assistance in selling our home on Maskell Street, St Heliers. We were very pleased with the result achieved and feel it was primarily due to the great advise you gave us particularly around 3 main points:- • Firstly the setting of the price and the marketing plan to achieve it. Also on this point we think the photographer you used was just amazing. What a true professional he was. • Your advice to obtain a top level building inspection report was invaluable, not so much towards the sale process but as you suggested it gave us real peace of mind knowing we had a good sound non-leaking home and this gave us confidence in holding out for the price we required. • The total involvement of you, your Mother June, your PA Sue and other members of the B & T team at the St Heliers office confirmed for us we were right in going with ‘The Big Guys’ in the industry. The daily communication levels even when you were away in Melbourne would be hard to fault. Last but not least we really liked dealing with an agent who was prepared to disagree with us and not just spin us a line to get the listing – quite refreshing really! (Ray & Sharon Verrall,  ph: 0274878714)
After 18 years as a real estate agent myself, I was very impressed with Kelly and can highly recommend her to anyone in the eastern suburbs – Pat & Frank Habrle
“After 18 years as a real estate agent myself, I was very impressed with Kelly and can highly recommend her to anyone in the eastern suburbs” From the moment Kelly met with us her energy, enthusiasm, professionalism and honesty were obvious. She demonstrated a sound knowledge of the area and the properties which had recently sold in it and her positive attitude gave us the confidence to ask her to present us with a marketing plan. Once she had listed our property for sale she and her team were in contact with us and made us feel as if we were almost her only clients they were so attentive. Kelly and her team were very effective in creating interest among other Barfoots agents, existing clients on her buyers list, and through excellent advertising. She caught the essence of our property. As a result our property sold quickly with Kelly negotiating hard to achieve a sale at full listing price. Her effectiveness didn’t finish there as she managed the conditional part of the contract to ensure a prompt and unconditional outcome. (Pat & Frank Habrle, 0274982404)
Nobody does it better – Bruce & Gill Carlsson
Thank you so much for the effective campaign that you conducted to sell our property. We were so impressed with the attention that you gave to ensure that our property was exposed to maximize buyer interest and create a sense of urgency to ensure that prospective buyers reacted quickly and positively. It’s no wonder that we achieved a great result in such a short time. In respect of your performance, we’ll let words of Carly Simon say it all. “Nobody does it better.” (Bruce & Gill Carlsson, ph: 027 543 2704)
My experience with Kelly Midwood and her team was superb! – Helen Wilkinson
Kelly is very professional, knowledgeable and helpful, and having her represent my property in Pembroke Crescent, Glendowie at a very stressful time was a choice I was very glad I made! She knows both her business and the area well. She has a wonderful engaging style and manner, that obviously both help the buyer and seller feel relaxed and comfortable. She kept me informed through all stages of the process and her level of follow-up with possible buyers was excellent. Kelly and her team worked hard to get the best result, they could only do this because they know the market they work in and they are determined to get an outcome that leaves everyone happy! I would highly recommend Kelly and her team to anyone and if I am buying or selling in the future I know who I will go to. (Helen Wilkinson, ph: 021 152 3815)
What we didn’t know when we chose her was the quality of the support team she has around her. The help we received from her immediate team, June and Sue was awesome! – Graham and Fionna Bass
We just wanted to say thank you to Kelly and the rest of your team who helped us to sell our house recently. We are delighted with the result and glad that our choice of real estate agent was a good one! We selected Kelly because:
  1. Barfoot & Thompson have so much of the market share in the Eastern Suburbs that using another agency would be foolish – anyone looking to buy here would definitely go through a Barfoot’s open home and be directed to our house if it was suitable;
  2. Kelly has been really successful in this area – when we were buying there were several occasions she got a vendor result that stunned us;
  3. We were aware just how hard she works to achieve that – every home and client is important to her and that shows in the effort she puts in and the number of sales she gets.
What we didn’t know when we chose her was the quality of the support team she has around her. The help we received from her immediate team, June and Sue was awesome. We were also really impressed with the number of other Barfoot agents who brought people through by appointment – at least one every day for our six week campaign (unless we needed a break!). (Graham & Fionna Bass, ph: 021 070 8663)
Kelly was determined that she would get me the best price possible for my house – Gail Thomas
"Kelly was determined that she would get me the best price possible for my house" I had considered a private sale but it was her right from the start Kelly was determined that she would get me the best price possible for my house. I had considered a private sale but it was her enthusiasm for and faith in the value of my house that convinced me that going with Kelly and Barfoots was a much better option. Kelly made the process as stress free as possible whilst we were going through the 3 week pre-auction build up with open homes and unlimited access to the house. By the time the auction came around the price expectations of the buyers had risen to the level that I had hoped for and the auction gave a result that I was delighted with – much higher than I would have obtained privately – even after taking into account the agent’s commission. I highly recommend Kelly for her friendliness, professionalism and her dedication to getting the best possible result for her clients. (Gail Thomas, ph: 027 611 6082)
Kelly said that she would sell our house and she delivered! – Dave and Leanne Hughes
The service that we have received from both Barfoot and Kelly has been outstanding. Kelly is a real asset to your team, she has been exceptional and very approachable throughout the whole process of selling our house. The moment Kelly stepped through the front door she was very positive, straight to the point and made the whole process seem easy. Kelly said that she would sell our house and she delivered! So a big thank you to Barfoot’s, Kelly and her wonderful team. (Dave and Leanne Hughes, ph: 027 315 5017)
She is not only professional and extremely efficient, but very thorough in all she does – Joy & Derek McKinstry
I wanted to take a moment to let you know how impressed we have been with Kelly Midwood and the assistance she has given to us in securing the purchase of our new home. Kelly has been outstanding and we have been very impressed with her service and work ethics. She is not only professional and extremely efficient, but very thorough in all she does and nothing is too much trouble for her. Her service is very prompt and always done with a friendly "no problem" and a smile. We have really enjoyed working with her and feel that with her attributes, Kelly will go a long way in the industry. (Joy & Derek McKinstry, ph: 021064 4799)  
Her considerable negotiation skills, market knowledge and experience concluded with a most satisfactory result – Hayley & Catherine Cornell
We chose Kelly to market our property in St Heliers because of her pleasant, positive manner whilst we were visiting Open Homes. Her professional handling of a multi offer situation we were involved in confirmed this decision. To find a motivated, cashed up purchaser was a difficult task given the state of the declining real estate market, but a sale was achieved in a few short weeks that included the Christmas holiday period – not an easy time to find a serious buyer. Kelly’s team consists of a very helpful Personal Assistant, always available at the office; and an obliging Sales Assistant who, once we were in a position to purchase, took us to view many houses that were of interest and in out price range. We would whole-heartedly recommend Kelly to anyone wishing to list their home with a view to a successful sale. Her considerable negotiation skills, market knowledge and experience concluded with a most satisfactory result for both vendor and purchaser. (Hayley & Catherine Cornell, ph: 021 567 678)
