“Sally has known my mother for more than 20 years when she handled the sale of her previous house. Mum was so satisfied with the result that when her needs changed again, & she needed to sell her present home Sally Cairns was the salesperson she insisted on having!
I have only recently met Sally Cairns, & she has been a pleasure to deal with. The sale of my mother’s house was completed in 8 days, a cash sale at a very favourable price. Sally was able to accurately access the market & close the window for offers to secure a good price for the property quickly. She gave good advice on marketing & presentation to ensure the best result.
I would use & recommend Sally Cairns at TSB Real Estate if I needed to sell.”
“I have to acknowledge the outstanding service provided by Sally Cairns of TSB Real Estate in achieving the extremely swift & huge sales result of our property.
Sally’s direct approach & enthusiasm made the choice of her as my sales & marketing representative easy. Sally worked extremely hard to ensure the maximum number of potential customers view the property & as a result 6 offers were received within 11 days. Her strategy to obtain the best sale price was inspired & attention to detail excellent. The final result was well above expectation.
Selling a loved ones home can be a stressful & emotional experience; however Sally reduced this stress & continued to support through to a very quick settlement. I could not have expected anymore from Sally & recommend her highly.”
Sally has just sold a property for us in Blagdon New Plymouth. We were extremely pleased with the outcome, selling the property at a higher value than we had expected, and quickly. The price achieved was slightly higher than her market valuation, which indicates a realistic approach to the market. We do not believe that we could have achieved a higher price through auction, based on the nature of the multiple offers received.
Sally worked closely with us to carry out the sale process very smoothly. Her communications were excellent, and advice was professional throughout. The presentation of the property in advertisements was well prepared with an accurate but imaginative and engaging description.
We had a number of issues with the property to resolve before it could be marketed, and Sally also gave us useful advice on what needed to be done, or what was of limited benefit.
The process of dealing with the legal aspects of completing the sale was also managed seamlessly.
We have to disclose that Salfy is a personal friend, but her approach and advice during the sale was totally professional and 'arm's length', calling in the agency manager whenever necessary.
