Carole Thomas was recommended to us by a Real Estate Industry person as being an agent who sells all the properties that she lists - a succinct description that encouraged us to meet with Carole to decide if we would appoint her as our agent.
The rest is pretty much history. We appointed Carole at our first meeting and a few weeks later our house was sold. In between times, we were absolutely impressed by Carole as being an immensely friendly and likeable person with whom it was always a pleasure to meet for regular sales progress briefings. Professionally, Carole could not be faulted; she demonstrated highly professional and skilled marketing, communication, and no nonsense negotiation abilities which we came to admire greatly.
So, we thank Carole for doing a great job for us and we have no hesitation in recommending her as a person of integrity with highly professional skills who gets results.

We had the pleasure of working with Carole on the sale of our property.
Our property was coastal and unique with a few special features so we went and looked at many agents. We looked at how they were selling the properties they were representing and how they conducted themselves.
Carole stood out by far with her professional nature and her understanding of the property she was representing and this also came across well with her very pleasant manner.
So we rang Carole, told her who we were and a little about our “coastal retreat”.
Although out of Carole’s normal sales territory, she agreed to come and have a look.
Both my wife and I instantly knew Carole was the agent for us (we had interviewed two others by then).
Carole also agreed to undertake the property, she got to work understanding the property, the area and came back with a plan of attack.
Within weeks we received interest and a sale followed that both reflected the value of the property and also the hard work Carole put in to it.
We would have no hesitation in using Carole again.

We really enjoyed working with you Carole, I’m sure we will keep in touch. I’m so
glad we made the move and that we got this house. You were just great Carole - very practical, professional, polished and reassuring with all your answers to my queries. Thank you so much for all your hand-holding! I really appreciated it. And we just love this house, so we are really happy that we got through that selling process and moving ...

Acting in a very professional manner Carole successfully marketed my property in Campbells Bay, obtaining a much better price than I anticipated. Her attention to detail was faultless, her marketing plan successful…
Having been burgled a long time ago we are very security conscious and it says a lot about Carole that we felt comfortable going away and leaving her with the control.
Carole has great emotional intelligence, is hardworking, beautifully groomed and puts people at ease. She’s accessible, openly herself and is fun to be around.
The sale of our home was not smooth sailing. It is the measure of an agent that, when faced with an upset, they can regroup and not lose impetus. If anything Carole was re-invigorated by a sudden turn of events. We ended up with a cleaner deal and more money, making it a winning post that we were happy to cross with her.

I first met Carole at an open home in View Road Campbells Bay and subsequently at the auction room at the Bruce Mason Centre where Carole represented the owners of the property and four other properties being auctioned on the day. Carole displayed a quiet professionalism in the auction room dealing confidently with the owners and bidders and the auctioneer, to reach a successful outcome for her clients.
Impressed by her demeanour and her results, I approached Carole with the view to
listing my property in View Road for sale by negotiation, giving her my price expectation and the importance of an uncomplicated offer. It was clearly going to be a challenge, but she cheerfully approached it with enthusiasm and vigour, handling all of the
advertising at strategic times and holding open homes every Sunday, come rain or
Carole is very knowledgeable in the art of real estate which I found very encouraging and she kept me fully informed with progress at all times showing an integrity with all enquiries not often enjoyed in the real estate industry. In spite of a fairly dull market
and a resulting protracted sales period, she successfully managed to achieve a most satisfactory result for all concerned.
Carole is blessed with a contagious wit and humour which she carries well in to the business arena and is always a pleasure to deal with. As a result she has become a good friend and I can’t think of anyone else I would recommend as highly as Carole Thomas.

I’d like to thank Carole for the fabulous result she achieved for our family following the passing of our mother. With four parties involved with the estate, all with their own idea of how the property should be marketed and sold, it was never going to be easy. To her credit Carole managed to provide strong evidence to back her advice and provided clear direction - it was decided the best way forward was to Tender the property.
Carole’s professionalism and patience during the entire process was to be commended - during some trying meetings she was always considerate of individual’s views,
however kept the process on track and moving forward with sufficient momentum to deliver what she’d promised. This included bringing another agent into the campaign as due to the large nature of the property Carole didn’t feel she could do justice to it at the open homes. Her reporting was timely and informative and the direct marketing campaign clearly reached the right audience.
I would warmly recommend Carole to any future client seeking a focused, driven
campaign run by an absolute professional who has total understanding of the market she’s working in. Carole delivered exactly what she’d promised.
Carole Thomas has recently completed the sale of my property in Castor Bay.
Against the background of an almost stagnant Auckland property market, she has
resolutely pressed on with the marketing of the property over 5 months.
I have been impressed, not only by her persistence, but also by her ability to work with associated building inspectors, solicitors and various potential buyers.
I have no hesitation at recommending her as an effective real estate agent.
The decision in choosing the right salesperson to market our distinctive property was no easy task. We were very impressed with the initial meeting we had with Carole and the marketing approach she had prepared for our property… Her continued enthusiasm and tireless promotion concluded in a very successful sale. Throughout this time Carole acted honestly and professionally when dealing with potential purchasers and we
cannot speak more highly of her communication skills.

As a seasoned agent myself, it is always difficult to choose an agent to work on your behalf. I was thrilled with the way in which you conducted the sale of my home. You were constantly in touch, even if there was nothing much to say, which I appreciated immensely. You did a wonderful job handling both me, as I was totally in love with my home and a reluctant seller, and a buyer who was tough to negotiate with. I thank you very much for your hard work and tenacity throughout the process. I would not hesitate to engage you again and recommend you.
