This is our third time buying through Shannon, and each time she has been easy and professional to deal with. She always keeps us informed and is available to answer any questions we have. We always enjoy working with Shannon and recommend her to people looking to buy or sell.

A job well done!
Bronwyn was a pleasure to work with, she was extremely friendly and personable.
I had the utmost confidence in her at all times and she kept us informed of all goings on.
When it came to the crunch she again proved her worth not only in selling but helping us to achieve our future property moving forward. Great job, well done.

 Bronwyn knows her business and made us feel completely at ease during the whole selling process. Selling and buying can be such an incredibly stressful time, but her assurance and experience facilitated a smooth transaction. We wouldn't have trusted anyone else in Gisborne with the sale of our house - we can't recommend her highly enough.

Very professional. Great communicator. Worked hard to find a buyer.

Jake was very professional throughout the sale process; advised of all options to promote and market my property without being pushy on any option. Jake followed any lead or inquiry to ascertain if there might be a serious buyer involved. All documentation was fully completed to protect all parties. Jake was very good dealing with my tenant, keeping them relaxed and cooperative throughout the viewing and selling processes. I'm very glad that I chose Jake as my agent and will engage him again when selling a property.

Fantastic to deal with
Bronwyn Kay is genuinely such a lovely caring person and an absolute pleasure to deal with. Her professional approach to real estate is outstanding and with Bronwyn, everything is either black or white. She has a great understanding of the local market and went beyond our expectations when selling our property. She was very professional and her communication skills were excellent. We highly recommend Bronwyn and the team at The Agency to anyone wanting to sell or purchase a property at Wainui Beach or in the general Gisborne area. You won’t be disappointed.

Kay Goldsbury (Vendor)

Bronwyn achieved a great result for us. She was very professional and a pleasure to work with.
Bronwyn made the sale process very easy for us. She had sound, accurate knowledge of both the market and the potential pool of purchasers and she gave us really good advice at every stage. She and her staff were always respectful and friendly and they kept us informed of progress at every stage.

Bronwyn and her staff were very professional in the way that they dealt with us and there were effective systems for dealing with one of the vendors living in a different city. There was also a tenant living in our property and they did a good job of marketing the property and working with the tenant to ensure that potential purchasers could view the property.

We have no hesitation in recommending Bronwyn and The Agency to anyone wanting to sell a property.

To whom it may concern,

 For the past six years Glen Rickard has had responsibility for overseeing the management of our property in Gisborne New Zealand, until its recent sale.

 We would highly recommend Glen as a property manager and have nothing but high praise for the way he undertook this role.

Glen was always very professional. He ensured that we were fully informed of matters relating to our property. We were regularly sent updates and photos and informed immediately of any maintenance issues. He was happy to organise people to deal with maintenance and was very prompt and efficient in dealing with any problems that needed attention.

Glen has excellent communication skills and his emails were often followed up by a call to ensure we were kept updated. This was not always easy for him as we had a five hour time difference where we were living in Australia. This often meant calls outside Glens working hours. 

Glen was also very good at keeping the lines of communication open between the tenants and ourselves which resulted in all parties I believe feeling valued and listened to. Resulting in a harmonious working relationship.

He is an excellent property manager whom we believe goes above and beyond what is expected.

Bronwyn made it happen!

I had found my dream house online, with little time remaining until the tender closed.  I needed an unconditional cash offer to have any hope of being considered in getting this beautiful home which had generated so much interest.  I owned my own investment property, however I didn't have the money upfront to make an offer and the bank weren't coming to the party. I had talked with another real estate agent who also couldn't give me a solution.  I had almost given up, then I spoke to Bronwyn...she very quickly came up with a plan to make it happen and by krikey was there some action!  Within one day my own house was listed, and in one week I locked in an amazing unconditional cash offer on my property, which enabled me to put in an offer on my dream home.  Wouldn't you know it, the ducks lined up and voila - success!  I can't thank Bronwyn enough - with a near impossible situation and tight time restraints she made it happen.  I have no hesitation in recommending Bronwyn to anyone wanting to sell.  She's clearly a savvy professional who has incredible drive and passion for what she does.   There's no way I could've done it without her.  Thank you Bronwyn.

Choose an agent that really knows his neighbourhood!
Jake has strong understanding of the local market , neighborhoods, and property values. I apprecaited the fact that Jake was confident in setting an asking price above the statistically accepted value at the time.

Jake kept me informed of every offer, whether from an individual or families, explaining the situation of each buyer. He is also responsive, promptly replying to calls, texts, and emails.

After a few offers, Jake quickly identified a buyer to secure the best deal - an agreed price was finalised in a matter of hours.

Trust is the foundation of any successful real estate partnership. Jake operates with honesty and integrity, and I look forward to working with him again in the future.

No substitute for experience
There’s no question that Bronwyn is one of the best in the industry. We’ve transacted with BK many times over the years and her no BS approach is refreshing, and a pleasure to work with.

Let’s face it, you’re spending a potentially life changing amount of money, and the agent that you work with is critical in assisting you to make that decision.

 Very happy with every aspect of Bronwyn's service

We found the whole process with Bronwyn and her team to be first class. We felt that the initial valuation range was very optimistic, but we got very close! We were also impressed at auction time that Bronwyn suggested we increase our reserve (usually it's the other way around) and while we didn't quite reach it on the day, her suggestion resulted in another $10K. Very happy, thanks everyone.


The Hardest Working Real Estate Agent in Gisborne

Highly recommended!
Bronwyn was fantastic to deal with during the purchase of our house. We had a relatively short turnaround time between viewing and purchasing at auction and Bronwyn was a great help with prompt replies to our queries and arranging viewings throughout the week. We are so happy with our new home and the purchasing experience went so smoothly - Highly recommended!

An absolute pleasure
Karyn has been superb. The communication from start to finish has been exceptional as she worked tirelessly to achieve the best possible outcome in a tough market. The sale required a degree of haste, she understood the urgency of my situation, and to that end even assisted me to sell household furniture, etc. Honestly, I couldn't have asked for anything more. She is a credit to The Agency and I have no hesitation in recommending Karyn (and I will). Thank you Karyn.

Fantastic to deal with

Bronwyn Kay is genuinely such a lovely caring person and an absolute pleasure to deal with. Her professional approach to real estate is outstanding and with Bronwyn, everything is either black or white. She has a great understanding of the local market and went beyond our expectations when selling our property. She was very professional and her communication skills were excellent. We highly recommend Bronwyn and the team at The Agency to anyone wanting to sell or purchase a property at Wainui Beach or in the general Gisborne area.

You won’t be disappointed.

Jenny has always tried to get the best sale price for us no matter what the market is saying, we seem to have done very well.

She is patient especially in a unpredictable market, she will always try to first get what the seller wants before re-planning re-thinking re-strategise. Her communication with us was excellent always informing us with what is happening and what is next, so all in all very pleased with the outcome very pleased with the services.

As an out-of-town vendor, I appreciated Bronwyn's frequent updates throughout the sales process. Bronwyn achieved a sales price that exceeded my expectations - I'd unreservedly recommend Bronwyn Kay Agency to any vendors considering selling their property in Gisborne.

It is our pleasure to recommend Shannon for any individual or family looking to buy or sell real estate.
Shannon is very honest, good with people, highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customers, although we know that was not the case.
Throughout the whole process of selling our property, we were kept well informed at all times, especially in the current turbulent market situation.
We are pleased to recommend Shannon to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
She will be our first choice in real estate agents.

Five stars are not enough!!!!
Jenny is an amazing agent. We cannot emphasize enough how professional, trustworthy and friendly our Jenny is. During our time in Gisborne we bought and sold three homes. We employed Jenny's services each and every time because we trust her implicitly to listen, understand what we want to achieve, and then make it happen (even against the odds! She is our miracle worker!)
Jenny will go above and beyond the call of duty, often thinking outside the box to make things happen.
We always find Jenny's honesty refreshing when it comes to selling our properties, and we always seek her knowledge and advice when looking to buy a property. Her knowledge and passion for Gisborne property knows no bounds and her genuine nature means you can trust that the advice you are receiving from Jenny is truly in your best interests.
We cannot recommend Jenny highly enough as the agent to buy property from or to sell your home. Five stars are not enough!!
