“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."Natasha Guttenbeil
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!Shane and Juanita Cook- Grey Lynn
Thanks Tricia & Kym for introducing us to our new home and assisting us with the purchase. You were always upfront and honest and kept us informed throughout the whole process.A & B Wall- Herne Bay
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!Marnie Mcguire
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 !T & H Shanley- Grey Lynn
I engaged Tricia and Kym to sell my house in St Marys Bay after much discussion with some other local sellers who had used them in the past. They more than lived up to my expectations: their attention to detail (3 photo shoots and much careful prepping of the house before each open home) was quite extraordinary, their marketing plan brought in potential buyers and the auction process went better than expected. Tricia and Kym engaged with all potential buyers to ensure the maximum turn-out for the auction and their work with the bidders on the actual night meant that my property realised appreciably more than I had been hoping for. They really do work for the vendors and are very good at achieving the best possible outcome for their clients. From my point of view, this clear demarcation of their roles is great: it side-steps the muddle that all too many agents ultimately get into, of chasing a commission by playing both sides off against one another. As a result, I can't recommend Tricia and Kym highly enough: they work as a team and get results. What more can any vendor ask for? Just don't find yourself on 'the other side'.Stephen Brown
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.Chris Tanner
We sold our house through auction using Trish Laferty and Kym Aikin of Ray White,Ponsonby.The house sold for a new record price(we think) for Wanganui Ave,beating the previous high by over $100K. Although I have owned property for over 30 years, I am the first to admit I know very little about it so I always ask for advice with anything to do with property.Once the decision to sell was made I asked a friend who the best agents to sell our property in Herne bay would be? She instantly said Trish and Kym of Ray White Ponsonby. After making contact and an initial meeting, Trish and Kym came back with a sales plan.We followed this to the letter..They organised everything down to the last small detail. It was all very easy.We met every week and they gave us buyer feedback(good and bad,no sugar coating,no surprises)and where the whole process was at. The house sold at auction above our expectation and we were thrilled. I have been told that selling your house is one of the most stressful things you can go through in your life, but in this case it was a easy carefree stroll in the park on a lazy Sunday.D Bartley & V Singh
"As a real estate agent Kym Aikin is a rare and absolute pleasure to work with. Throughout the entire sale process Kym kept me informed, blow by blow. I was never left wondering what was going on. I can heartily recommend Kym as a fabulous real estate agent, and an enormously satisfying person to work with. She will definitely be my real estate agent whenever I may need her."T Savage
"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."K Oswald & T Bower
