When you decide to sell that house you worked so hard to buy or create, it's not always the best timing or to be honest, the best house and/or location. When we made the snap decision to return home to NZ and sell up the market was poor, we lived alongside a main road and we hadn't even finished the interior painting or the landscaping!
Even worse is that you have to rely on real estate agents who are often afforded the same mistrust as used car salesmen...lots of paperwork and fast talking but what does it all really mean for your wallet!
We were referred to Gemma Fazio of Next Vision by a friend who had achieved a great result on a unique property - but we were still dubious. However, we can honestly say that if the qualities you seek in an agent are along the lines of candid, experienced, informed, hardworking, encouraging, communicative and many more of the 'salt of the earth' qualities that we sought in taking care of us and our biggest asset, then you need look no further than Gemma.
For us it was all the little things that Gemma did and said during the sale process that made it so much more manageable. Gemma guided us in choosing light fittings, outdoor furniture and styling including sourcing items/prices online. Our financial and time constraints were handled with ease and there was never any pressure to do anything more than present a clean home.
Communication is key and honestly sometimes we would text or email Gemma late at night or well before work in the morning and we always received a response. Reporting following home opens was great and in her relaxed and honest way, Gemma managed all our unrealistic expectations, smiles and tears, right through to settlement day.
The commission on our sale was well and truly earned and at all times we felt that Gemma was working for us, not a potential buyer or for her sales stats.
Though we have covered only a few aspects of how instrumental Gemma was during our entire sale process, we believe you can't go too far wrong in engaging Next Vision and that you too will enjoy the energy, experience and humour that Gemma brings to the table as much as we did.
