It has been our pleasure to engage Julie in the marketing and selling of our home this year. Julie came with many years of experience in selling real estate and comprehensive understanding of the current market at the time. Julie scripted a delightful ‘welcome’ note (describing our journey building our house) to give to all those people who came to the open home viewing. Julie would give us prompt feedback after each open home which was honest and realistic. Julie even did an extra Saturday open home for us to give us the very best exposure to the market. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 level 4 lockdown came along and our house was not sold.
Soon after the country went to Covid-19 level 3 Julie contacted us to say she had a very keen client who had been stuck in doors and had been searching the internet looking for a house to buy in the Bay of Plenty. By this time we had decided that we would stop marketing our house any further and would try again the following year. Julie was confident that she had a genuine buyer and brought him through our house one wet and windy Autumn day. She was right! Two days later she presented us with a Cash, Unconditional offer with a long settlement date! We were extremely surprised and thrilled with the offer and then Julie went that one step further for us and said, “I think I can get you a bit more money!” We were speechless and agreed for her to phone the buyer. After talking a negotiating with the buyer Julie came back with another $40k!! Also, the buyer asked if he could buy some of our furniture which was very pleasing since we were going to downsize and build again and that meant we would be storing all of our furniture.
Julie has a lot of ‘people’ experience which enables her to know how to negotiate and communicate very effectively to get the best outcome for a Vendor. She is a very authentic person with integrity, honesty and humour as natural attributes.
We would, and have, and will continue to, recommend Julie as a ‘5’ STAR Real Estate Agent. Nobody will be disappointed engaging Julie to sell their house!
Sharon and Murray Overington
The team have been amazing in helping us sell our house, they were very considerate as we had a newborn and knew it was a bit harder for us to have our house prepared. They made the whole process so smooth and stress free and our house sold very quickly. They will most definitely be our first call when it's time for us to purchase again! Many thanks team for your support
Millie and Jonesy
Julie you have gone over and above with everything during the sale of out home and your professionalism is beyond reproach. You certainly are a GREAT NEGOTIATOR. Thank you for all you have done for us
Murray and Sharon Overington
I would highly recommend Julie to help you sell or find your next property. I called upon her at a very challenging time and she made the experience go smoothly. Being a previous client of Julie’s as a buyer, it was a “no brainer” to use her again to sell. Her appraisal was completely accurate and realistic, the property was sold quickly with a top result. I was well informed and kept up to date every step of the way. Her communication and efficiency was second to none. Thank you Julie for every bit of your time
“Just wanted to let you know that we have found somewhere. Thank you very much indeed for all your efforts and for being so professional, we really appreciated it and would have no hesitation in contacting you in the future should we ever need your services.
“We enlisted Julie Parkinson to sell my mother’s house in Tauranga, the professional manner in which she conducted the sale was impressive! Julie went out of her way to put my mother at ease, she in my view went beyond what you would expect. I have no problem in recommending Eve’s and in particular Julie to cover your listing.” Bruce Douglas (Vendor)
Thanks Julie & Lindsay for a very professional approach to the successful sale on our house in Beaumaris Blvd Bethlehem. Attention to detail from listing our house to the marketing, photography and ongoing communication throughout was excellent and nothing was too difficult. We would use Julie & Lindsay again to sell and highly recommend them as a truly Professional Real Estate couple.
Derek & Marina Smith, Bethlehem
Just a big THANK YOU for all of your work in marketing and selling Vine Avenue. You were faultless in everything you did, and we really appreciated your determination to do the very best for Mum. You and Lindsay have been so professional in every way. The process of selling Mum's house has given us a new appreciation of just how hard you have to work to make this happen. Well done!
Renner Family, Tauranga
Thank you so much for everything you did for us, nothing was ever too much trouble and you made it a lot less stressful. The biggest thing for us is communication and trust and you had two massive ticks next to those boxes. You were an awesome lady to deal with friendly and approachable. It was all the little things that you did that made you stand out like the way you acknowledged our son and making him feel included in the massive adjustment that was happening around him. Even now after the house has sold he keeps asking for you. It’s like you are part of the family. We seriously cannot thank you enough and would definitely recommend anyone wanting to sell their property or in the market for a new one to talk to you.
Vanessa & Tim Brock, Tauranga
We just wanted to write a quick note to say thank you once again for all the hard work you put in to getting us the best possible price for our wee house in Bongard Street. I think that having you on our side made all the difference. We are now happily settled in our new house in Dunedin. The fire is roaring into life and the kids are developing a whole new understanding of the word ‘winter’. Here are some pics of the house we were able to buy thanks to you. It feels like we just won lotto.
Andrew & Miriama McKenzie, Dunedin
Julie has always kept us up to date with what was going on regarding the Real Estate market, her service was always very professional. She has a bright, positive and outgoing personality and is a pleasure to deal with.
We would highly recommend Julie to anyone wanting to sell their property
D & A Jenkins, Tauranga
We were so glad we made contact with you, we felt very comfortable with you, which was great. Thank you again for all your help
We are repeat clients of Julie and have found her to be professional, friendly and easy to work with. Julie went that ‘extra mile’ for us and we look forward to working again with her in the future.
Ian and Lynette Hodge, Rotorua
Thank you both for your time and support with trying to sell our home.
It has been a pleasure to work with two such kind and professional people. Many thanks
Trish Ellis, Tauranga
I’m really happy we chose you and Lindsay to market the property; you’ve both done a fabulous job and really helped with all sorts, particularly when we were getting the property ready to market. It was a nice smooth transaction, which was what I had hoped for, given I live abroad
Lisa Jerome, London
Prior to my decision to sell, Julie was known to me as the "FACE OF EVES" at "BOWLS TAURANGA SOUTH". Loyalty to our sponsor prompted me to approach her to discuss the sale of my property with a view to listing for Sale.
From the initial meeting to consider "VALUE APPRAISAL" and subsequent "MARKETING STRATEGY" I was hugely impressed by Julie's personality and professionalism. Her accuracy and sense of reality was something I had not experienced in previous house sales in Dunedin and Wellington. I was very comfortable that in Julie I had found exactly the right person for the sale of my property.
The rapid result proved my assessment to be absolutely correct. There were no dramatics or false hopes and I was always kept informed on possible outcomes of prospective buyers. When you engage Julie you are not lost in the mire by a non-caring agent but genuinely treated as a long standing friend. Julie, My Very Sincere Thanks.
Brian Brown, Tauranga
After having our house on the market for a year with three different agencies, we had just about given up on selling, when Julie appeared on the scene. Julie Parkinson is a very enthusiastic and friendly person who enjoys her work very much. She puts in 110% and goes that extra mile, she kept us informed all the time and managed to sell our house much quicker than we thought she would be able to. We would strongly recommend her to anyone we who was thinking of selling. We are very grateful to Julie as she saved us a lot of stress. We now think of her as a family friend.
Jim & Grace Neale, Tauranga
We have just sold our property via the auction option with Eves Realty, Tauranga. Julie Parkinson was recommended to us and upon meeting her; I knew she would certainly be able to help achieve our goal. Julie is a consummate professional. Her passion and dedication cannot be faulted and I would recommend her highly to anyone selling their property. I found her at all times to have our best interest at heart while working diligently and honestly with any potential purchaser. Her enthusiasm and hard-work has proved priceless in this process and I do not believe we would have achieved such an excellent outcome without her. Thanks again Julie, it was fantastic working with you.
Sara Knight, Tauranga
Julie you have done an amazing job of orchestrating the entire process and you have gone above and beyond. You did a great job of going in to bat for us and I am extremely grateful for all your efforts and the negotiations of the last few days. Well done!!!
You have done a wonderful job of finding out what people are about and what their needs and motives are and translating that to us. Thank you for your patience and guidance.
I would like to thank you very very much for all the work and time you put into helping me find a house in Tauranga. It was an absolute pleasure to be house hunting with you and your company, there is a very big difference between you and your competitors !
Karen Phillips, Hawkes Bay
Thank you so very much for working so well with us in selling the house. You have minimized the stress that normally occurs with a transaction like this. Thanks for your help and friendship.
Grant, Leanne, Denise, Andrea and Owen, Tauranga
I just want to wish you all the best and thank you for all the valued advice and confidence and your patience and friendship you showed me.
Barbara Trafford, Tauranga
Just a quick thank you note for putting in my contract. Julie, I really liked you as a person and hope that you will call in for a cuppa and catch up when you are in my area. I am really excited about you being in real estate, I have this strong belief that you have got what it takes in that challenging role.
Robyn Warburton, Tauranga
When we were long distance buying, Julie Parkinson, provided the ideal amount of support to us. She let us know that she was there without making us feel pestered and she answered all questions as promptly as she was able. She made us feel she was genuinely interested and supportive of us. Julie’s after sales support has made it easier for us to settle into a new city and neighbourhood.
Lindsay Lamont & Kate Sabiston
To anyone who is looking to buy or sell property my husband and I would highly
recommend Julie Parkinson. While we looking at homes to buy last year in Tauranga we were lucky enough to meet Julie. She helped us find our home that we are in now and nothing was ever a problem. She is also a genuine and lovely person which you will find out if you are clever enough to use Julie as your real estate agent.
Eddie & Teresa Leef, Tauranga
Julie, thank you for all your help.
Suzanne Gardner, Christchurch
Julie acted as my agent and I would just like to say I found her very honest in her appraisal of the situation and very hard working in her effort to sell my home. She was always bright, cheerful and encouraging. Being a widow this was most beneficial to me. I would recommend Julie as being a trustworthy and very diligent person.
Betty Kinvig, Tauranga
May I commend Julie on the sale of my home. She not only executed the sale in a very quick time but also in a friendly and professional manner. She was approachable and co-operative at all times. It was a pleasure working with such an obliging person.
Doug Goodfellow, Tauranga
From the moment we met Julie and invited her to appraise and then list our property she impressed us with her enthusiasm and professionalism. Julie kept our best interests to the forefront at all times. She negotiated with potential purchasers on our behalf bringing a satisfactory conclusion to the sale of our property.
Josh & Sharon Webby, Tauranga
It has been a real pleasure having you as our agent and we thank you for all the effort you put in for the recent sale of our home. We commend you on your personal touch and attention to detail. Your approach regarding open homes was wonderful and you happily fitted in with all our requests, including the advertising. While we were on holiday overseas for 3 weeks you worked even harder. We wish you well in the future and would recommend you to future vendors.
Marcos & Michelle Schrater, Tauranga
Julie recently assisted us when we purchased a residential property in Tauranga. Throughout ths process, Julie was very helpful indeed. She was very well informed about the details of this property as well as displaying a sound knowledge of the local area, its character and available services. Julie’s communication was excellent. She kept us informed at every stage of the purchase and no request was too much effort. For example she arranged the pre-purchase check of the property and consistently liaised closely with the vendor. This was an enormous help to us. Buying a property has been made much easier because of Julie’s very professional attitude and we are pleased to highly recommend her to others contemplating activity in the property market.
Ray and Betty Pollock
I approached Julie when she was referred to me by an Eves colleague in Papamoa. Eves appealed to me because of their high profile and knowledge of the Bay of Plenty region.
Julie gave me an appraisal of my property in the form of a “Marketing Submission” which also outlined trending in the market and comparisons to similar properties in the area. At the time I thought the appraisal was optimistic but come auction day she was right “on the money”. When deciding to list Julie clearly explained the options available and recommended an auction for my property. I took advantage of a marketing promotion that Eves were offering at the time which gave my property excellent coverage both locally and nationally. Open homes were held on Saturdays and Sundays and were well attended with Julie or her husband Lindsay on hand. I’d come home to a card from Julie with a precis of the day which was followed up a few days later with a detailed demographic of who attended, their interest (or not) in the property and what they estimated the property value to be. Julie always called ahead if any other buyers wanted to view the property outside of the open home hours which gave me time to have the place ready.
The outcome was a well-attended auction with multiple bidding resulting in me getting a price over and above my expectations and at the top end of Julie’s appraisal. Dealing with Julie was a pleasure, I felt included in the whole process and Julie worked hard to get the best outcome for me. I would recommend her and Lindsay without hesitation and would call them again when considering my next move.
