Paul has made selling our mother's house so easy! He has kept us informed and involved through out the whole process. Great to work with - straight talking, realistic, honest and really hard working.

Recently we engaged the services of Paul and the Harcourts Waikanae team to sell our property at Waikanae Beach. Paul took us through the different options of traditional offer, closed tender and auction and we all agreed on an auction. Paul explained to us how the process works and how we could make the process as easy as possible for potential purchasers. There is no second chance when bidding at an auction, once the hammer falls the successful bidder owns it so the pre-auction process is all about due diligence which Paul recommended the vendor made easier through providing a LIM and Building Report as part of the package. Paul remained closely connected to us through the 3 week marketing campaign where we felt fully informed and up to date. Come auction day Wayne conducted the process with Paul there to engage with us if required. It didn’t come to that, the hammer fell above the reserve and everyone left feeling happy – Paul, Wayne and the Harcourts team, the vendors, and very importantly – the lucky new owners.

The week before the auction I was joking with Paul we could let the house go for $700k, Paul and Wayne the Harcourts auction team sold it for only a little shy of that figure. My wife and I were blown away. Initially, we were a little sceptical of the advantages of using an agent versus selling privately but due to the nature of our property Paul convinced us to go with Harcourts and we are now significantly better off as a result. Thanks Paul, Wayne and the Harcourts team.

I was delighted with the professional manner in which Paul managed the sale of my property at 4 Pharazyn Avenue, Waikanae Beach.  I was kept fully informed at all times after each open home and for private viewings also.  To me the most important thing when selling your largest asset is to know with certainty that your agent is working hard for you and Paul’s attention to detail throughout the process enabled a successful outcome.

'Right from our first meeting with Paul, we were impressed with his professionalism, his enthusiasm and his knowledge of the local area. Paul kept us fully informed with regular communication throughout our sale campaign - we knew our property was in good hands. He even happily worked around our little boys nap times - booking viewings and meetings all around him! Paul made the process so easy and achieved a brilliant result for us! Based on our experience we would recommend Paul Templer and Harcourts to all our friends!‘

I first met Paul when I invited him to appraise my property. He gave me constructive advice, was open and friendly. Through his advice and guidance I was able to sell my property at the price I wanted. During the time of purchasing my next property, I was extremely impressed how he would promptly return my many calls even though he was dealing with a physical ailment of his own during this stressful time for me. Thank you Paul and good luck for your future.

Paul was the agent we chose to sell the family beach home at Waikanae. At our first meeting we were impressed with his enthusiasm, and good communication. As the process of tidying the garden, staging the house, and preparing for the open homes progressed, he gave us great feedback and really good suggestions and support. He worked hard every step of the way, and brought the property to a successful auction conclusion. I’d recommend him to anyone who needs an agent and is lucky enough to be in his area.

Dear Paul We would like to take the opportunity to thank you for the excellent job you and the team at Harcourts did with the recent sale of our previously tenanted house. You initiated the contact when we were trying to sell privately. You did not try to persuade us from that goal but provided information to help with that process. When we tired of the effort that took (which made us realise real estate agents do have to work for their money!) you took us in hand, and having demonstrated the power of auction lead us through that process with enthusiasm and expertise. You were a great communicator, very polite, forever patient and impressed us with your knowledge of the local market. The auction itself was an amazing experience and more than met our hopes and expectations. Full marks to you and auctioneer Wayne Sutton.
