It has been an interesting ride in the property market for me since I first decided to purchase a home, but wow did I get the right people on the job!!! The Deighton Group have been the most amazing agents to work alongside, they have shown respect, care and committment in helping myself and my daugher to find a property that ticks all the boxes. I would like to acknowledge all the time that they gave us during this journey, we could not have done it without them, they are both out of the box!! They have taught me things that I did not know about the market place and I am grateful that they have walked the journey with us!!

Recently we were fortunate enough to have The Deighton Group help us with our search for a home in the Tauranga area. They were a great help to us, finding a variety of places to view so we could have plenty of comparisons. We feel that they went the extra mile for us, providing any information that we needed. This was out first experience with an Auction and they made sure that we fully understood what to expect and ensured that we were completely informed and comfortable on the day. Our search was an enjoyable experience and we never felt pressured at any time and we are now very happy with the home we purchased. Thank you.

I purchased a property last year with The Deighton Groups help. I found them to be reliable, extremely helpful and honest. Both myself and my wife are very thankful for their help, I lost track of the amount of homes that they arrange for us to view during our marathon effort trying to find a home to relocate to Tauranga. Having their help and support during the process was a key factor in our finding the right home. This is not the first time that I have bought and sold a home and I have never felt comfortable to recommend other agents before. However, I would recommend them in a heart beat. Thanks again for all your help.
We were impressed with Sarah and Lester's commitment to sell our property. After our first meeting, we were confident that they knew the market by providing factual and relevant information based on the current property market. Sarah was flexible with client viewings that worked around our families commitments. Sarah and Lester are hardworking, responsive in communication and gave the time needed to ensure we understood the selling process. I would recommend this duo to prospective sellers in the Tauranga property market.

I recently had both the privilege and pleasure of having Sarah Deighton as my real estate salesperson whilst selling my home. Throughout the whole process, Sarah was a friendly professional presence enabling the sale to go through in a timely manner and with a great outcome! I cannot thank Sarah enough for the support she gave me at every stage.
We were fortunate to have met Lester and Sarah through a mutual friends recommendation when we were looking to sell our first home. Engaging them for this process was one of the best decisions we made. What is generally considered a stressful process was made clear, straightforward and enjoyable throughout. We achieved the best result possible in the market in a swift time frame. We loved the experience so much we even purchased our new home through Sarah which was an equally pain-free, clear process.
Stuart and Jane Phelps
"Sarah is very thoughtful and gave us confidence in buying our first home. Buying a first home is stressful and scary, but Sarah made everything so much easier for us. We felt that our needs were just as important as the vendors, and that the priority of the transaction was to get the best outcome for every party".
Tom and Caitlin
During our time working with Sarah Deighton we have found her both professional and friendly. She went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly in the sale of our house. Thank you Sarah for your time and sharing your expansive knowledge of the real estate industry.
Phil & Coral Brown
Sarah & Lester were very helpful, with arranging meetings at the property with ourselves and others where needed and also with organising the necessary paperwork and providing any information required for our bank/broker/lawyer, to help make the purchase of our property go ahead. I would definitely purchase property through both Sarah & Lester again.
After our first meeting we had no hesitation to allow Sarah and Lester to handle the sale of our property. It was refreshing to feel no pressure, with a genuinely nice relaxed and thorough approach. For the early part of our sale we were out of the country and had no hesitation to allow them full access to our home. Their willingness to put themselves out to even little things like sweeping leaves before Open Homes was much appreciated. We enjoyed great communications throughout the whole very successful process and highly recommend Sarah and Lester to anyone wishing to sell their property using an Agent.

We first met Sarah at an Open Home earlier this year while searching for a property in Tauranga, and were both impressed by Sarah’s manner and helpfulness. A month later we decided to purchase a property that was marketed by Sarah. The process flowed quickly and smoothly due to Sarah’s professionalism and experience. She communicates splendidly and ensures that all issues are addressed to the satisfaction of both parties. Sarah is very professional yet allows her great sense of humour to bring an ease to the process. She is an excellent professional in our opinion. We are happy with our new home and would recommend Sarah to any one looking to sell or purchase a property
Kath and Denis McDonald
I met Sarah when I attended an Open Home she was showing, and found her knowledgeable and easy to talk with. I later asked Sarah to assist with the sale of my property and subsequently she was able to assist with the purchase of my next home. During this time Sarah showed she has a genuine empathy for her client enabling her to understand my requirements and worked to obtain the best results for me, with both the sale and purchase of property. When I contacted Sarah she always made time for me to discuss my queries making suggestions which assisted me to make decisions and she kept me well informed of progress. I recommend Sarah to anyone selling and/or purchasing property
It was an absolute joy to have someone as lovely and experienced as Sarah help us find and purchase our new home. We highly recommend Sarah to all our friends and family and we will definitely go back to Sarah in the future
Sarah Deighton played such a big part in helping us sell our family home and find our dream house! She was there every step of the journey, and went over and above her normal duties to make sure my husband and I were well-informed. I highly recommend Sarah as an agent, as she truly cares about her clients—not just making a sale.
Brian and Sonia B
We listed our house with Sarah as our agent. We found Sarah to be so helpful, friendly, and dedicated to our sale. We would highly recommend Sarah to anyone wanting to buy or sell. She went beyond the call of duty while we were in Australia. We had a big storm and the nextdoor neighbours tree branch which was sizeable came down in our property, and Sarah and her husband came around and cleaned it up for us. Once again we cannot recommend her highly enough
Bruce and Jan Peters
We thoroughly enjoyed having Sarah as our real estate consultant in the recent sale of our property. Sarah has a very pleasant disposition and proved to be a pleasure to work with on all aspects of our sale from the initial negotiations through to the close of sale. We have no hesitation in recommending Sarah 100% to anyone wishing to sell their property with a real estate consultant who shows respect and has a genuine interest in obtaining the best possible result for her client.
Ian and Irene Henderson
Integrity and passion are two things that spring to mind when I think of Sarah. She does the right the thing by others and she loves achieving the best outcomes. That is what gives me piece of mind. I trust her. Sarah is also incredibly approachable and has a great sense of humour, which makes her so easy to communicate with. I would recommend her in a heat beat.
Sarah is an honest, reliable person whose personal values ensure that you can trust her. She is an excellent communicator with an outgoing personality that anyone will quickly warm to.
Sarah is very astute, personable and knowledgeable. She is friendly, relational and immediately establishes rapport with all people she meets. Sarah is a strategic thinker, innovative and resourceful in carrying out tasks that require a high degree of creativity and problem solving. Her listening skills are highly developed and she carefully considers decisions and outcomes before she embarks on work or projects. Sarah always desires to do her best, is conscientious, efficient and careful to ensure all her work is completed to a standard of excellence. She quickly gains people’s trust and confidence and she treats all people with respect. I have no hesitation in recommending her as a real estate agent who will listen and actively seek to suit every client to the right home for them.
Sarah is an outstanding professional whose attention to detail is second to none. I have worked with Sarah and known her over the past 14 years and respect her communication skills, integrity and ethics. I recommend and trust Sarah 100%, she is simply fantastic.
