What people are saying

“Tricia’s knowledge of and experience in the Grey Lynn area was a definite advantage. We enlisted Tricia & Kym’s services directly after running a campaign with another real estate company that failed to deliver a result. From the first meeting we found Tricia to be upfront and honest but also personable. She assured us that she and Kym would be committed to helping us achieve the result we desired. Together they are a tenacious team with complementary skills and the energy they put towards our campaign did not falter right up to the successful sale. Kym’s eye for interiors and art was extremely helpful in the presentation of the property for marketing and open homes. Her attention to detail also ensures a well-run campaign. Tricia’s knowledge of and experience in the Grey Lynn area was a definite advantage. She has a refreshing candor but is also shrewd and decisive which gave us great confidence in having her deal with prospective buyers on our behalf. We would have no hesitation in recommending Tricia & Kym as agents and would happily work with them again in the future."

Tricia and Kym made the experience of selling our family home an easy and painless exercise. At all times they demonstrated a professional, astute, friendly manner. They are both great communicators and kept us updated, providing positive feedback and advice throughout the process. Their working styles compliment each other and both agents have a sense of humour to boot. For us, this type of approach worked wonderfully and ultimately achieved an outstanding results. We highly recommend that you use Kym and Tricia to sell your property, you won't regret it!

When I decided to sell my house, I knew exactly which real estate agents I wanted for the job. I had been to several open homes and auctions and had seen how professional and engaging Tricia Lafferty and Kym Aikin were. Through the process of selling my home, they were thorough and patient with my endless questions.... Nothing was a bother. They went the extra mile to make me feel comfortable and informed throughout the entire process. For me it was all about how a real estate agent presents themselves and my home to potential buyers and they absolutely hit that brief as they are warm, professional and engaging. It was a smooth process with a lot of laughs along the journey to achieving a successful result!

Super agents, very perceptive and in touch with the market, they get people and are truly helpful. Just put your property in their hands and the rest is easy. What we can expect from Tricia & Kym – TRUST, ENTHUSIASM, COMMITMENT, UNDERSTANDING, COMMUNICATION AND A GREAT OUTCOME !

We often hear bad news travels fast but let me tell you a wonderful story about two "real" estate agents. Recently I sold my house though Tricia Lafferty and Kym Aikin. Selling your house can be an overwhelming experience on many fronts but I have to tell you that I was simply overwhelmed with their sheer hard work and attention to detail which exceeded all my expectations, I should know as I am an ex real estate agent. I wouldn't consider such a testimonial unless it was justified, but I assure you if you want a stress free sale where the results speak for themselves, then I suggest calling Tricia and Kym.

"Kym's communication throughout the process was incredible. Her advice, openness, and honesty were something I relied on and trusted. Kym has a huge amount of integrity and compassion. I really felt she had all parties' best interests at heart and she certainly took on selling our home with passion and enthusiasm. I was very proud of Kym representing me and my home and would recommend her highly to anyone looking to sell or buy."

M King

"It had been several years since we first met Kym Aikin and she immediately sprang to mind when we recently decided to sell our house. Her energy and enthusiasm, ability, knowledge and professionalism are just some of the attributes, which we desired but have infrequently found when choosing a real estate agent to take on the task of selling a property. Kym displays honesty and integrity and delivered exactly what she promised. Communication was excellent and scheduled meetings reliable, we were kept informed every step of the way. We were thrilled with the outcome of the sale and would not hesitate to employ her again."

It’s actually quite something to realise that you genuinely trust these people with your most precious asset. I’ve never experienced such dedication before. This is the dream team who live and breathe selling your house to make things happen. The perfect combination of enthusiasm, perseverance and experience. Tricia & Kym aren’t just real estate agents. They don’t just sell houses. They change lives.

D Pollock & J Hodge - Ponsonby

Kym presents as an expert who understands the importance of stepping a client through the highly emotional experience of selling a home. She's got a great eye, she's fun and she's highly trustworthy (a rare thing in a Real Estate agent in our previous experience).

V Stone - Grey Lynn

Tricia and Kym made the recent sale of our house extremely easy and enjoyable. From a service level they delivered more than we could ever have expected, and their expertise delivered an outstanding sales result in a tough market. From our perspective they were a very sound investment!
