Richard White – Facts not beliefs

For Sale


“Julie and Richard were incredible managing, and executing the sale of our house. Their communication, knowledge and focus showed through very strongly, and definitely allowed me to carry on with my hectic work schedule while being fully informed on the progress of interest throughout the campaign very effectively. My brother and I were very happy and it ended in a seemless sale for us! I will definitely recommend them to others.” Libby Law

“Both Richard and Julie provided excellent information, were quick with follow up and with taking actions and ran the campaign very well. Their information on options was helpful particularly for us having no experience in selling before, and the desired result was met at auction, simple, fast and on the mark.” Ed Law

Hi Julie and Richard.
Michael and I just want to thank you both for making the selling of our property seamless. From the moment you walked through the door we knew you were the perfect team to get the job done. Your advice on preparing us for our first open home right through to the hammer on auction night made this easy.
You also helped enormously recommending Mark Roy here Papamoa. He did us proud finding our Dream Home 5 minutes from the beach.
We so appreciate you being there for us right through to moving out providing us with a very welcome cup of coffee while we were actually packing everything into the Removal Van ready for our venture.
You are both GREAT, and remember there is always a bed for you and yours when you are down this neck of the woods.
We wish you both all the best. Thanks so much for being there for us!
Love Michael and Fluffy.
P.S. Chopping board well and truly christened.

“Our experience with Richard White and Julie Davies was very positive.
The entire process went very smoothly.
They were very professional at all times and did exactly what they proposed.
The sale of our property went through sooner than anticipated which was a bonus.
We would not hesitate in recommending their real estate services to anyone.”
Matt and Sally Kerrigan - 107 Landscape Road, Mt Eden
“Richard we want to express our gratitude to you for helping us to sell our home. The circumstances in which we had to sell were extremely difficult and time pressured. Throughout the process you were impeccably professional but also sensitive and empathic to our situation. Not to mention patient! For me this understanding was priceless. The net result is that the house was sold at auction for the price we wanted, to buyers who were entirely suited to the property. In a depressed market we have come out in a good situation and for that we are really thankful and relieved“

Julie and Richard helped us sell our property in Mt Roskill. When we first met them we weren’t sure on our timelines or even certain that we did want to sell. Richard and Julie worked with us to sort out what plan would actually work for us. Then they leaped into action and had our house sold at auction just 5 weeks later.
Both Richard and Julie were a pleasure to deal with. Always happy to answer our silly questions, meet at times that suited our lives and offer advice on how we should be approaching different tasks. It really did feel like they were interested in getting the best outcome for us, both in terms of price and what our family needed.
Richard and Julie worked as a fantastic team, you could always get someone on the phone when you needed to and they made us believe our late night phone calls weren’t disturbing their lives (although they probably were). We felt safe and certain that our house was being looked after during viewings and that we were up to date with the feedback people were offering.
We were really pleased that we stumbled upon them in an open home and snapped them up as the people we wanted to support us in our sale. It was a great decision for us. While we can’t imagine wanting to sell again, we would certainly be calling them again when the time eventually comes.
Thank you both for your amazing help

“I previously listed my property at 12 Cameron St, St Marys Bay with another company without success, however after listing with Richard at Harcourts he managed to achieve an outstanding result as we successfully sold under the hammer with over 5 bidders in the room, thanks Richard.”
June McCabe – 12 Cameron St, St Marys Bay
“We met Richard roughly 18 months ago while he was selling another property in St Marys Bay and he kept in touch. After showing us several homes in Herne and St Marys Bay, he managed to get a good idea of our requirements. We were staying at our daughters home, getting rather restless when Richard called us to say he had a property in St Marys Bay that he felt would suit us perfectly. This was an off market sale so allowed us time to view on several occasions and really get a good feel for the home and location. Richard helped every step of the way, meeting us on site with builders, designers and architects, I always felt we could pick up the phone and ask Richard for his help at any time. Thanks for unearthing our lovely home, we are very grateful for your service and patience and would recommend you to our friends and family.”
Christine and Simon Hart - 16 Seymour Street, St Marys Bay
Selling a high-value property is not necessarily the same “colour-by-numbers” exercise as for properties in other segments of the market. The pool of potential buyers is smaller, and harder to reach out to in many respects. To start with, we tried the conventional approaches to selling our house: conventional real estate agents for the area, conventional places to spend on advertising. Neither of these strategies proved successful. Richard took the initiative to approach us about selling our property, which is in itself indicative of his willingness to make an effort in what he does. In fact, we found that his approach to the sales process was more akin to a professional sales team operating in any commercial environment, in any other industry. When Richard counselled us, we always felt that it had been after considerable reflection, that it was commercially sensible advice and arrived at with our interests in mind. We never felt that any stone was left unturned by Richard in either finding potential buyers, or following up interested parties. He didn’t just wait for the phone to ring. All the way through the process, he kept us well-informed and was willing to follow through any suggestions or ideas. He was a joy to deal with. He listened to us. He heard what we were saying, and knew his product (our house). There was no nonsense. No “caravans”. No timewasting. And in the end, Richard achieved a sale for us. Our only regret is that we didn’t get him on board when we first made the decision to sell our house!
