What people are saying

Tricia has very clear and clever sales strategies, coupled with the confidence and ability to follow these through, based on her many years experience as a Grey Lynn specialist. To say that we were delighted with the outcome of our auction would be an understatement - we were stunned! On top of this we found her to be a good communicator and fun to deal with.

Steve & Suzanne

I have known Tricia for many years and worked with her before she entered Real Estate. I purchased the house through her in 2002 and when I decided to sell never thought of contacting anyone else as I knew she would provide a great service and that I could rely on her implicitly.

S Butler

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

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.

From the first open home I attended Kym and Tricia worked hard to keep me informed. Any information I asked for was passed onto me asap. They were very obliging on several occasions when I needed access to the property for various reasons. They made my transition from my previous home as stress free as possible. Thank you girls!

Sue Stevenson

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

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

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

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'.

Despite our feeling from the first time we met, that Tricia was the right agent and Ray White Ponsonby the right agency to take our home to market, we dutifully followed a friend’s advice and shopped around…however we should have trusted our instincts, because the passion and professionalism that Tricia and Kym brought to our first meeting was contagious…choosing them was a no-brainer, they were head and shoulders above the rest! From day one, they promised us it would be fun and possibly this is their greatest gift to their clients, because it was! Not only did they have to work around my health issues with open homes etc, they somehow made a potentially very stressful period amazingly easy for us…Tricia has a gift for candour and humour that cuts through all the ’stuff’ that crops up and somehow defuses it…she is a very ‘real’ personality who took full control and she and Kym genuinely took care of us and our home. And, thanks to her formidable negotiating and people skills, she sold it at auction for a price that set a local record! We couldn’t recommend Tricia more highly…she is brutally honest,truly caring, genuinely passionate, fiercely intelligent and very knowledgeable about the market….and we fully understand now how her past clients become future fans and friends! How often could say that a real estate agent made a difference to your life? Well Tricia did to ours. If you have a ‘special' home and Tricia agrees to list it, you are in very, very good hands…and it will be fun!
