To say that working with Kyra to find our dream home was a pleasure would be a severe understatement. Not only did Kyra go above and beyond during the whole process, but it was obvious that you put your heart and soul into learning about your clients needs and wishes.
We worked with you for only a week or two during a very difficult time, due to low deposit and new restrictions for first time home buyers, and every step of the way you were extremely empathetic to our situation which made the whole process so much easier for us than it could have been. We had previously worked with a few different agents who put little time and effort into finding our home. You made what we were told was an "impossible task" come to fruition sooner than we expected. Thank you for always being available to us and for your outstanding service!
Lana & Nick Becker
Having had a great experience with Kyra when we moved from Auckland to Papamoa and were buying, it was to be expected we would have the same experience selling. Kelly and Kyra were well aligned with what we wanted and put together a fantastic marketing campaign for auction, so good it only lasted a week and we bought the auction forward and sold! Couldn’t be happier!
Chris & Mark Taylor
We absolutely loved working with Kelly and Kyra from TEAM KELLYO throughout the process of selling our home. Being our first time, Kelly and Kyra were very supportive and made every step easy by answering any questions we had promptly. The auction result was amazing for us and will set us on the right track for our next step on the property ladder. Thanks guys!
Zane & Natalie
We received a referral from a good friend who recommended Team KellyO at Eves as excellent real estate agents to deal with. We found Kyra and Kelly absolutely brilliant to work with, making every step of the process easy to understand and stress free, given their local knowledge. Team KellyO’s level of professionalism and transparency was exceptional and they delivered on all that was promised. We would highly recommend Team KellyO to anyone looking to sell their property.
Mark & Andrea Inman
We have used Kelly & Kyra now for two house sales and we have nothing but respect for their professionalism and abilities. The feedback from open homes and contact is nothing short of incredible and we would recommend them to anyone wanting to buy or sell real estate in the area.
Graham Shaw & Carol Buckland
What turned out to be a long and drawn out process to purchase my first home was made so much easier with the help of Kelly and Kyra from TEAM KELLYO. From last minute auctions to late night emails they were there for me whenever I needed them. Kyra and Kelly were willing to help me look through multiple properties at very short notice while also offering a lot of advice. I will be highly recommending them to all of my friends and family.
We employed Kelly Ormsby from TEAM KELLYO to market and sell our units in Te Puke. We had heard good reports about his expertise but did not have any personal knowledge of him. The team were AMAZING. From our first meeting to sale day the contact was frequent and clear, and they kept us informed every step of the way. Kelly dealt with our tenants with respect and care, which at times was challenging – INCREDIBLE. Within a month of our first meeting the units were sold and Kelly’s after sale service is second to none. The team go out of their way to keep customers at the centre of everything. We would highly recommend Kelly and his team for making a stressful process a pleasure.
Natarsha and Rosemary
It was a pleasure dealing with Kyra and Kelly who helped us sell our home. All done and dusted in three weeks with a good marketing campaign and professional service. We couldn’t say the auction itself was not stressful but Kelly and Kyra guided us through the process to a successful conclusion. A great team!
Rob & Liz Hilligan
We found Kyra very friendly and professional throughout the process of buying our new home. She was easy to communicate with and assisted us with the purchase via phone bidding at auction. We would definitely recommend Kyra to others.
Petrea & Lawrence
We can’t fault Kelly and Kyra for both their professional and personal service.
Kelly’s knowledge and expertise in the sales and building trade was exceptional and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Team Kelly O
Terence & Lynette Eady
We would highly recommend Kelly and Kyra of Team Kelly O Eves to anyone wishing to sell their home. They showed an absolute professional service and great result for us in a short period of time. Also, the willingness to go the extra mile and help with any issues that arose was very much appreciated.
Paul & Sheree Norris
I chose Kelly Ormsby to market my property. WOW TEAM KELLYO an amazing team. A very big thank you to Kelly, Kyra, and the team for selling my home within days. The standard of your service was amazing. Your advice and communication was great. Thank you for making it stress free for me. I would recommend Team KellyO to everyone.
Selling my house while living in Australia I believed, would have been both a difficult and challenging process, however Kelly and Kyra took all the stress and worry out of the auction campaign, walking me through each process. Acting on my behalf, Kyra and Kelly were both professional and efficient and with the aim of doing their best to achieve the right price for me, the sale of my home was an absolute success.
Thank you so much Kelly and the team for an awesome result for the sale of 1237 Papamoa Beach Road. Very easy to work with you also. I know you worked with the buyer to bring a great result they they were happy with also. Great agent and great team that I wholeheartedly recommend.
Owen & Avalon Brown
Having met Kelly when he kindly took us to a few houses at the Mount, we were impressed with his professionalism and obvious knowledge, so when it came to selling Spinifex, it was a no brainer to ask him to help us. We have been so impressed with the way that he has handled the process, he kept us informed and the weekly dashboards from the team were great. You really made the whole sale seamless from our perspective and that is much appreciated. Our huge thanks and we would gladly recommend Team Kellyo to anyone selling a property.
Ali and Mike Watson
Having recently returned home to NZ, we really struggled to find what we were looking for in the Mount. We had no local knowledge of the area and so we wasted lots of time looking at houses which were completely wrong for us. Luckily, we met Kyra from Eves. Kyra was a breath of fresh air and helped us rule things out quickly. She listened to our needs and accompanied us on every visit to see for herself what we saw and felt in each house that, on paper, seemed to tick the boxes. If we suggested a house, she would do her research and give us her view based on our previous feedback - even if the house was not in her area. Life was so much simpler, and this allowed us to get on with everything else, safe in the knowledge that Kyra had our back and was keeping an eye out for our perfect home. Kyra was just as excited as we were when we found our sanctuary, but she didn't stop there. Kyra made sure we were okay every step of the way - the whole process - until we finally picked up the keys and moved in. Even now Kyra will still check in to make sure we are loving our new life. Thank You Team KellyO; we could have done this without you, but you saved us so much time, pain, uncertainty, and heartache that I would wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone.
Craig & Jackie Rich
Kyra is an outstanding agent to work with. She is a skilled listener and understood exactly what I needed and why. Her in-depth knowledge of the local market, her ability to understand my goal and know, on point, what I needed in a home helped to build a trusting relationship. At no point did Kyra waiver from the task at hand and we enjoyed celebrating my new home together. I can highly recommend Kyra and Kelly Ormsby to be your ‘go to’ agents when looking for or selling a home or investment property.
Kyra is a fantastic agent and supported us diligently over a long search for the perfect home. We needed to buy a home during a very busy time at work and are very fussy and particular on top of that. Her organisation, perseverance, and attention to detail helped us find and secure our dream home. Kyra and Kelly's assistance and support at auction was also instrumental in getting us to our goal. Thank you Team Kellyo!
Dan & Claire Hahnhaussen
We have both brought and sold a property through Team KellyO and we highly recommend using them if you are looking to buy or sell. They did an amazing job and we were kept up to date with everything that was happening. Their knowledge, guidance and experience made the process of selling our home much easier and we would not hesitate to recommend Kelly and Kyra to anyone.
Mike and Rachael Plunkett
We recently purchased a house in Papamoa through Eves. We are currently living in Auckland and Kyra Ormsby from Team Kellyo went out of her way to arrange viewings at a time convenient for us and our daughter who lives in Papamoa. She also listened to us about what we liked and did not waste our time showing us houses which were not suitable. Kyra was very friendly and helpful and did everything she could to ensure she found the right house for us. We are very happy with our new home.
George & Moyra Flowerdew-Brown
Team Kelly0 was recommended by a friend who had previously conducted business for the sale of their property. I have been delighted with their professional approach, which helped me achieve a good price in a short time. I would thoroughly recommend Kelly and Kyra to anyone wishing to market their property.
For anyone thinking of selling their property, I cannot recommend Kelly and his team strongly enough. They did an absolutely amazing job! Nothing was too much trouble and Kelly handled everything from arranging cleaning and maintenance, lawn care, connection of services, appointing a Home Stylist and, most importantly, kept me updated on progress throughout and at all hours. There was never any doubt in my mind that my property was in the right hands with TEAMKELLYO. Thank you so much Kelly, Kyra and Renee!
I listed with Kelly & Kyra Ormsby as I have had good results from them in the past. I found them to be really informative about the different sales processes on offer and also upfront about what it would cost me. I had a tenant and Kelly handled them with courtesy and honesty which resulted in a cooperative tenant, allowing showings and open homes. All in all, I’m a very happy customer and will return.
After having appraisals from 3 other agents our choice was definitely Kelly & Kyra due to their knowledge and experience in our area. Their sensible guidance, advice and persistence led to our house being sold pre auction which was an extremely satisfying result for all parties. We were impressed with the professional guidance given by Gill Bowden, office manager at the end of the process, so all in all we felt we had the complete package from Eves and the special team of Kelly & Kyra.
Simon & Iola Hocking
After two unsuccessful attempts at selling our property, Hazel and I decided on a different approach. An excellent advertising programme, viewing by appointment only, the visual advertising in the Eves Property Magazine, Trade Me and other social media was brilliant. Kelly and Kyra worked hard on our behalf and were always considerate and co-operative. The property was sold within a month, we were delighted. Thank you TEAM KELLYO.
Bob and Hazel Beckman
A big thank you to Team KellyO! Kelly and Kyra put in a huge effort and went the extra mile over the Christmas new Year period to help us with buying and selling. We highly recommend Kelly and Kyra for anyone that wants to get the job done with honesty and integrity.
Chris Russell and Penny Carr
Kelly and Kyra were fantastic to work with. Their professional and enthusiastic approach lead to a seamless sale of our home. Kyra and Kelly were available 24 hours to answer any questions and support us with any queries regarding selling and buying a home. We highly recommend Kelly and Kyra to anyone wanting to sell and buy a home.
Andrew and Helena Hoult
We wanted a quick turnaround when we decided to sell the family bach prior to Christmas and we really appreciated the advice Kelly and Kyra gave us throughout the process. Kelly pulled out all the stops to get the property staged and marketed in a short timeframe, resulting in a successful sale under the hammer on auction day.
Thank you so much Kelly and Kyra and team for your assistance in the recent sale of our house. Your honest appraisal and the marketing options you presented helped us with the process.
The standard of service was exemplary and continues as we look to purchase our new home. Communication is essential at all times and yours was top notch. It made sure that our presentation was of a high standard and we were ready for client inspections at a moment’s notice.
Your knowledge of the law as it applies to Real Estate is second to none. The sale and purchase agreements are lengthy and complicated but you made understanding them a simple process, unlike some we have been involved in recently.
It has been a relatively stress free process and we would recommend Team Kelly O to anyone and would use them again if required
Coleen and Mike Lloyd
We got a few appraisals from different agents from various companies and we found that Kelly’s energy and knowledge for the market was what attracted us to using TEAM KELLYO to sell our property. We found our experience to be positive and stress free and would definitely use TEAM KELLYO again.
After our 6th transaction with Team KellyO, we are again ecstatic to be able to say they achieved a great sale for us. We would never consider using anyone else for Real Estate.
Kelly, Kyra and TEAM KELLYO are the team to choose for marketing and selling your most important asset and prized possession. Having built, and loved my home for 18 years, Kelly and Kyra expertly guided me through the whole process which ended with a successful sale at auction. I felt fully informed along the way and confident we were on the same page as to the desired outcome. The whole process was seamless and stress free. I can strongly recommend TEAM KELLYO to assist you on your home sale journey.
Our marketing and sales experience with your company was exceptional. Kelly provided excellent knowledge and advice prior to the start of the marketing campaign, and professional, skilled attention to the subsequent marketing and sale of our property. We would not hesitate to recommend or engage Kelly & Kyra as marketing agents in future property purchases or sales and, indeed, look forward to working with them again in the future.
Dean & Jacqui Cowley
We were thrilled with TEAM KELLYO and would recommend them to absolutely anyone looking to buy or sell a property. Kelly was professional at all times and had such a great understanding of the local market. He was also able to give us some valuable advice which we really appreciated. We originally had appraisals from 3 other agents/companies and made the decision to go with TEAM KELLYO purely because of Kelly. We had total confidence in his ability to get the best result from the outset and he didn’t disappoint!
Jonathan & Stephanie Stow
Thanks Kelly and Kyra for making our house sale so easy!!! You were recommended to us by a number of friends and acquaintances and you certainly lived up to your reputation. We were so impressed by your knowledge, experience, professionalism and honesty and felt a level of trust from the get-go. Both yourself and Kyra make an awesome team!!! We would highly recommend TEAM KELLYO to anyone selling or buying their prized possession.
Timothy & Leanne Willson
We chose TEAM KELLYO to market our home based on recommendations from neighbours and also from our belief of their knowledge of our area. We were not disappointed in any aspect of the sale of our home from their initial appraisal, to the honest and factual valuation, through the open homes & viewings. The sale and negotiation process was professional and seamless and their enthusiasm relentless. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending TEAM KELLYO to any prospective buyer or seller in Tauranga.
Mike & Margaret Letica
We chose TEAM KELLYO to market our property as we were very impressed with the whole process of purchasing our first property in Papamoa through them. We found TEAM KELLYO to be reliable and honest while working hard to secure us our desired result on the sale of our first Papamoa property. Kelly was exceptionally knowledgeable and upfront about all aspects of the house we recently purchased and we would certainly have no hesitations in recommending TEAM KELLYO to future prospective vendors. We would also get them on board again if we were looking to sell our current property.
Stephen & Bianca Lawton
We chose TEAM KELLYO to market and sell our property from his reputation as an experienced and reputable sales consultant in the real estate industry. We found Kelly to have strong and reliable knowledge of the market and took his guidance to ‘go to market’ by Auction. Our thanks to both Kelly and Kyra for a successful outcome and I would thoroughly recommend TEAM KELLYO to anyone looking to either buy or sell in the Papamoa / Mt Maunganui area.
