"Thanks so much for the way you handled the sale of our house.
We chose to work with you for a couple of reasons. First, it was hard to go past your brand presence in and around Mt Albert and the City Fringe. More importantly, when we met, we gained a strong sense for the positive way in which you’d present our property and work with potential purchasers. We appreciated your advice as we presented the property for sale and then as we considered the question of whether or not to accept a pre-auction offer. On the day of auction you proved our confidence was well placed when there was strong bidding on the property, which was purchased in the end by a couple you’d had in mind as being potential buyers right from the outset.
Choosing an agent was a big decision, one which in many respects was heart as much as head. We chose well, many thanks."

“Just a note to say how pleased we were with the sale of the property at 11 Highland Road.
Both Greg Whitta and Julia Rust were excellent in their advice and encouragement on how to get the best out of the property for sale and as a result of this, we achieved a very satisfactory result. Their advice in the presentation was a great help and also their behind the scenes working made the sale easier with a minimum of fuss.
I would have no hesitation in recommending both Greg and Julia to any prospective seller and this applies in using the skills and expertise and back up of the team.
"We recently moved from Hawke’s Bay to Auckland, and were in urgent need of a house that we could move into straight away, yet had potential for us to add value through development. Unfortunately, as we were house hunting from home in Hawke’s Bay, it was impossible for us to get to the weekend open homes. We found the house we are now living in through the internet, and the quality of the photographs and description provided made it stand out as one needing to be looked at. Julia and Gary were really helpful in accommodating us visiting the property during the week, outside of normal business hours (and at short notice). They quickly handled our requests for more detailed information, and managed the auction process and proceeding paperwork with ease. Alongside this professionalism we also found both Julia and Gary very personable and genuinely interested in making sure we were looked after through the process. We shall be looking to use Julia and Gary to help sell the house when we move on at the end of the year."

“After getting the exciting news that my husband had secured a job in San Francisco, we needed to get the house on the market as quickly as possible! When Julia Rust stepped into our home, it was like a breath of fresh air – She showed a real interest in our property, asked lots of questions, and had easy to understand information on hand. This was our first time selling a home and they made us feel totally comfortable with the process – she was definitely the agent for us! Within a couple of days they came back to us with a fantastic, cost effective, marketing plan, a realistic timeline for open homes and an auction date, and before we knew it the open homes were on and the house was flooded with keen buyers! Julia had really listened to what we wanted and the whole process just seemed so easy, and quite a lot of fun! We ended up getting multiple offers prior to auction, and the auction was bought forward by a week. Our home sold for a great price and we couldn’t be happier”.

"Thank you very much for your professional, detailed suggestions and patience of service in the purchase of the property. My families and I are so happy we can buy this house. We were all very excited. Thank you!"
"Julia recently sold a house for me. She was at all times professional, respectful and great to deal with. Over the past 30years, I have sold a number of houses, Julia would be one of the best Real estate agents I have used. I would use her service again if decided to sell again."
"Both my husband and I are very happy to have Julia Rust as our agent. We are very impressed with her confidence and energy in marketing our property. She has professional marketing plan and it has proven her capability in securing sale quickly. Our property was sold with the best offer presented on the second day of its open home. Still can't believe it happened so fast and smoothly. We will recommend Julia to those who wish to sell their property as she delivers well."
Philip and Pauline Ng
"Craig and I would like to take thisopportunity to thank you for all the hard work you did for us in selling us our new home. We really appreciated your honesty, commitment and availability (day & night). We also enjoyed your friendly manner. You acted professionally and gave us the utmost courtesy. You did not pressure or harass us but was most diligent in carrying out any requests and in following up after the deal had gone through. It can be very confusing and tiring when buying a home and you helped guide us through the process with patience and professionalism. Nothing seemed a problem. We have no hesitation in recommending you to people who are looking to sell their homes. We wish you well in your professional and personal life."

"I would firstly like to thank the team for what they have achieved on our behalf. The office has a common sense but highly professional approach to the job in hand and dealing with them has been a pleasure. The results you achieved were truly extraordinary and my sister and I are still stunned by the outcome.
Our heartfelt thanks must primarily go to your agent Julia Rust. From the minute we contacted her she was there for us and I would defy anyone to work harder or more productively for a vendor. She is well-focused, cheerful and unfailingly helpful. It was a considerable task to get the house ready for sale but Julia worked with us and encouraged us every step of the way. Her pleasant manner and excellent communication skills meant that that she could encourage us to maintain the momentum without it ever feeling intrusive.
Julia is that rare type of person who can operate as the well-rounded professional while still interacting warmly on a human level. A purely clinical approach does not communicate much of value to me. I like to evaluate people on their humanity, as trustworthiness springs from the human attributes. She left us feeling like we had friend alongside us; albeit an energised, well organised one. We wish her the very best for the future and from the bottom of our heart we can only say, thank you Julia, you are the best."
"I have known Julia for about a year for being a dedicated, warm hearted, friendly & humble person with a smile and that is the reason I decided to give her my home listing, she has responded to all my phone calls faster than speed of light which has made a difference in exceeding customer’s expectations in the sale process. Many times she has responded to my very late, afterhours phone calls in spite of having small children. She has been always wanting to help and go that extra mile. She has been positive dedicated and perceiving person in all her deeds, I recommend her to all new prospective buyers and sellers and wish her god blessings with good health & prosperity in all her future years of her life."
"When Gwen and I decided to sell our home that we have lived in for 12 years we expected it to be on the market for some time. However, a very professional marketing campaign conducted by Julia Rust and Wendy Keats meant that we were delighted to view four offers on the Tuesday that followed the first weekend of open homes. The offer we agreed on exceeded our expectations and the house went unconditional on the Friday.
We are so thankful we had chosen Wendy and Julia to work for us. They impressed both Gwen and I with their commitment to achieve a highly satisfactory result for us. We certainly would recommend them to anyone considering buying or selling."
Alan and Gwen
"I am writing this testimonial to acknowledge the outstanding services help support and guidance given to us during the sale of our Property by Julia Rust and Gary Agnew.
Julia was very professional, accommodating and very helpful with any queries or help we needed during the sale. The whole process, dealings with the buyer were so much simpler through her approach. She was never pushy or in a hurry to get through the sale.
She went out of her way many a times to get us the best buyer and offer the deal that was both within the buyers budget and our expectations. We were delighted to have her as our agent.
I have seen many other agents when it comes to selling or buying a property, in comparison to their services, I think Julia definitely sets up a benchmark where I think many could learn from her. I would love to always have Julia as our agent, if ever we were thinking of buying/selling a property again. I am delighted to recommend Julia to all my friends and family and also to those who are keen on buying/selling a property.
Thanks for all your help and support."
"Throughout the process of our recent house sale, we found the team to be extremely professional, diligent, hardworking, friendly and most importantly they dealt with the upmost integrity. Nothing was too much trouble, Julia was always available if we had any queries or needed some advice, we received regular communication regarding activity on our property and we eventually got the outcome we intended. We would highly recommend Julia to anybody wanting to sell, or purchase property."
"I would like to thank you both for all your assistance during the sale of my property. I found you to be: Supportive, Professional, Caring (of both purchaser and vendor). You made me feel great and even when I was feeling a bit down you made me feel a lot better by your friendly approach and caring manner. Hard working – Your energy was amazing.
Considerate – You knew I have health problems and put yourselves out to work around when I was feeling ok. I would not have any hesitation in recommending you to anyone I know wanting to sell/buy a property."
"Julia's help and guidance in enabling me to find the perfect first home was nothing but fantastic. Not only did she advise me on the areas to look at that would be suitable for me, but she constantly made herself available whenever I wanted to view a property, or had any questions about various properties. Julia's approach was very professional and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell”.
