A Positive Auction Experience  

We recently sold our property in New Plymouth at short notice, and our Bayleys agents Leo and Sandra were extremely helpful during this process.
It was suggested that the best way to market our property was to use the auction system.
The whole sale process was very well handled, with a thorough pre-sale preparation and an intensive marketing program to follow.
Very good communication through-out the whole process.
The Bayleys auction system is very well conducted with lots of pre sale preparation, information and strategies completed, and their skilled negotiators were on-hand to finalise the sale.
Well done team, we were impressed with the service and very satisfied with the results, and have no hesitation in recommending you and the Bayleys team to other vendors.


Auctioning our Father's Home  

We found Sandra and Leo extremely attentive, flexible and supportive during every step of the sale process from preparation of the property (where they suggested and organised various services) to marketing, advice and communications.
In particular, we were impressed with their unique and innovative marketing approach, with the use of drone video and follow up with prospective buyers. Also of note was that Sandra and Leo kept us fully informed throughout the process with reports, texts after open homes and status of interest for the auction. We would have no hesitation in using Sandra and Leo again and recommending them to others.


Auction Experience  

We decided to go to auction with Leo and Sandra. Throughout the process they were completely professional and incredibly supportive. The auction was a completely new experience for us, one I expected to be quite stressful, but Leo and Sandra ensured a really smooth process. We even negotiated a purchase on the same auction afternoon. We would highly recommend using Leo and Sandra to sell or buy your home.

We recently sold a house with Leo and Sandra and while this can be a very stressful process, we felt 110% confident by partnering with Leo and Sandra. They were candid, provided great feedback, helped explain clearly all details and managed the actual sale negotiation brilliantly. In addition, they were extremely responsive to every one of our questions, no matter how small. Outstanding service!

Darryn and Anna


Prompt service without living on our doorstep. Honest, reliable advice.
Good interaction between agents.
We were very satisfied with the job Leo did, and not an easy sell as it turned out.
He kept us up-to-date with regular contact. Easy to talk to, and a friendly manner.
Sandra also was an excellent lady to work with and we would certainly use either Sandra or Leo if we needed real estate help in the future.

Ray and Christine Jury


We have recently relocated to the South Island and decided to use Sandra and Leo to sell our home that we had recently renovated. Sandra and Leo came through and gave us an honest and realistic appraisal for our home and we were impressed with their honesty and the way the presented themselves to us. Sandra was extremely professional whilst still being friendly and personable throughout the open home and sale process and our children loved having Sandra round to see people through our home. Sandras weekly reports were informative and kept us up to date with progress and expressions of interest throughout. We really appreciate the way Sandra and Leo made us feel important to them throughout the sale of our home and we would certainly recommend them to others looking for honest and hard-working Real Estate agents. We wish them all the best for the future!

We dealt with Leo for the sale of our previous home and were very happy with his approach and method. We enjoyed working with Leo and Sandra, they are a fantastic team, with an honest and reliable approach to sales. Thank you!

Sarah and Liam


Thanks to you both for selling our house. Particularly as it was in a price bracket with few sales. Add to this the fact that it is a rural property, you really had a challenge on your hands. We appreciate keeping us informed all the way and your honesty during what can be a stressful process, your tireless hard work eventually resulting in a multi offer situation. We would have no hesitation recommending both Leo & Sandra for your real estate needs.

Rob and Sandy van Lieshout


Prompt delivery of service, updates of relative matters. Excellent service and a standout result.
