Testimonials

Here’s what some of our clients think:

Georgina and Deborah are the dynamic duo of Real Estate. They are unobtrusive, friendly, practical and relentless in their pursuit of the vendor’s goals while treating purchasers with the utmost respect. We were very pleased with the results they achieved for us and their follow-up support which ensured a smooth settlement day.
Jude Urlich

Buying and selling property is supposed to be stressful and difficult – but we’ve completed two purchases and one sale with Deborah all trouble-free and without any real worry at all. 

We first met Deborah at an open house for an inner-city flat for my daughter Catherine to base in while studying – it was love at first sight on the flat and Deborah managed the sale with consummate professionalism. So when it came time for Catherine to move up and out,  we discussed who best to sell the flat and both said “Deborah East without a doubt”. 

The great bonus then was that Deborah found a new house that met Catherine’s challenging requirements – and when the settlement dates proved not to line up, not a problem, Deborah “pulled out of her hat” an interim suitable place to stay! Our experience is that whether you are buying or selling you are in thoroughly professional and intelligent hands with Deborah East – Sarah McMurray

 

Deborah’s hard work, professionalism and knowledge of the market have served us well and we are most appreciative –  T Sutherland & H Anderson, 5D/1 Grant Rd

 

I had the pleasure of having Georgina as my agent and show me around some properties in 2016. I was very impressed with her profssionalism and dedication. Nothing was ever a problem, and she was always readily available. Georgina is hard-working, friendly and proactive. Although I didn’t find my property through her, I want to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to her for taking the time and effort to look for a property that would suit my requirements. If you’re looking for an agent that will be committed to finding the right property for you, I recommend you make contact with Georgina. Natisha Diack

Deborah is wonderful, she cares about the people more than the house, and has developed a network of really nice people in ancillary services-valuation, mortgage broking etc. – Peter Barnes

 

Her level of service and attention to detail was outstanding, from arranging a Makeover Consultant and other assistance with the presentation of our home, to networking with other Leaders agents from both the City and Karori branches to find us a buyer. Thirty agents came through our home in the week it was on the market. I would not hesitate to recommend Deborah East to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home in Wellington. – Rosalie Hume

I would recommend her to people to sell their houses. – Teresa Allen

I just wanted to put in writing how thrilled I am with the outcome of both my apartment sales. You got so close to my asking price; your cheerfulness, reassurance and persistence made such a difference; you didn’t put any pressure on me to accept a low offer; and you were so careful not to upset my tenants. I will definitely be asking you to sell my other units in due course, and I am recommending you to everyone I know who wants the very best in real estate service. – Michael Emery

I firmly believe that Deborah was successful in selling my property quickly because of the approach she took. Is Deborah capable? Will she sell your property? Is she helpful, friendly and practical? Should you list with her? You bet. – Adele Hickford

 

Your willingness to make that extra effort and your good humour made a difference. – Ingrid Shouler

 

At very short notice Deborah was engaged to market my property for sale, and handle the purchase of my prospective property.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Deborah. – Craig Walker

 Even given the difficulties of selling a house with poor access in a very slow market you remained both positive and supportive and you obtained the best price possible for us.

What really stood out about working with Deborah was her energy and drive. She was interested, prepared to listen and always gave us feedback after she had brought someone through. – Colin and Elena McDiarmid

 

Deborah did a wonderful job for me. Other agents had approached me with offers much lower than Deborah’s and were stating this was the maximum they believed they could get. Deborah brought in an offer to me that was significantly higher. Her communicative ability was wonderful, and her friendliness and accommodating, understanding attitude made it easy for me to make decisions. – Michael Webber

 

Thanks to your sterling efforts you sold my unit in such a short time. I have given your cards to two people who are considering selling. – Tom Dermody

 

 Deborah knew what I was looking for and didn’t loose sight of the goal (even though I did at times). Deborah’s work enabled a win/win situation with myself and the vendor, and she achieved this in an effective way. I had dealt with other realty staff, and she beats them all hands down. – Damian Paine

 

Thank you so much for all your effort and work you put into pushing our house. Deborah, you are the only and I mean only real estate agent that I will recommend to my friends. Your people skills are excellent. – Fiona Hollier

We would probably have given up months ago without your friendly prodding and it has to be to your credit that the deal was sealed in the end. Your manner was always most amicable and professional under trying difficulties. – Roger Green

 

I found Deborah to be most courteous, reliable and above all very friendly. She sold my house in one week, and found me a unit which was exactly what I was looking for – Mrs MM Morrison
