My partner and I worked with Courtney to purchase our first home and we really can’t say enough good things about her. She is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient and incredibly generous with her time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends). She answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Buying a home in this market is challenging, but working with Courtney made it as painless and straightforward as possible. We were able to find our dream home thanks to her and we highly recommend her!
Debra and Daniel
Well done Courtney for selling our property in a challenging market! We found Courtney to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customers, although we know that was not the case. She returned all phone calls, txts and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. She is also highly personable with an engaging personality. We are pleased to recommend Courtney Wood to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to buy or sell again in Riverhead she will be our first choice in real estate agents.
Jennifer and David
Courtney has been our real estate broker as a buyer once and a seller twice. The most recent house sold prior to us even listing and to the first viewer! Courtney knows her clients and the local market very well. We’ve always found her to be prompt, knowledgeable, understanding, honest and extremely thorough. We were confident from previous experiences that Courtney would take care of everything and communicate throughout the process. We highly recommend Courtney! Thank you once again Courtney.
Jonathan and Kylie Wallace
I met Courtney for the first time when she came around to appraise my partner's property. I found her manner and approach very easy to deal with. A couple of months later I decided to sell my own property and there was no hesitation at all as to who I was going to call. Courtney came into my home and made me feel like I had something very worthwhile to put on the market. Throughout the whole marketing and selling process Courtney was fantastic to deal with - professional, honest and friendly. A couple of things that stand out for me is that Courtney works extremely hard and always strives to reach to best for the vendor. I would highly recommend Courtney to anyone considering their property, in my mind she is up there as the best. Thanks Courtney, it was a real pleasure.
I had a friend that had used Courtney to sell their property and he recommended her to me, so I gave her a call and asked her to come round and give me an appraisal. From the first time I met Courtney I instantly liked her down to earth and professional attitude. Right through the whole marketing selling process she was absolutely excellent to deal with, her communication skills and professional abilities are second to none. I found her to be extremely honest, very real and straight up. Courtney is very pro-active and works very very hard to meet your expectations. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her to anyone and would go as far to say that she is only real estate agent that I would use. She has been a privilege to deal with and now have a friend for life. I wish her all the best.
Courtney has a lovely manner but is results driven, this made the sale of our home a well-managed process. Courtney’s communication was excellent and she met our sales expectation. We would highly recommend engaging Courtney for the sale of your property.
Simon and Lynsay Hunt
Your excellent service, frequent communication, professionalism and dependability, made the sale process so much easier for us. We knew instantly that we had selected the right Realtor. We were so pleased that every phone call to answer our questions or calm our concerns was returned so quickly! Your attention to detail as well as your knowledge of the current market assisted us in understanding what people in this area are looking for in a home. You went above and beyond and we would certainly recommend your services to anyone that is interested in buying or selling a home.
Charl and Louise Swart
We placed our house at 22 Larmer Drive, on the market for sale, in March 2017. We engaged Courtney to market and sell our house, as we had a relationship with her from a successful previous house sale. Courtney always makes us feel at ease. She is a straight shooter, informed us about the current market situation, and what sales are like for similar houses in our area. We had a number of open homes in the weekend. It became evident that the housing market had slowed down dramatically, and open home visits were in the single figures. Courtney kept us updated with immediate contact regarding views and interest in the house. She discussed with us the current situation, and we agreed on some modifications to our marketing plan to meet the change in the market. Courtney was always assessing the situation. When we had a serious interested purchaser, Courtney worked tirelessly mediating and negotiating quietly in the background. There were a number of challenges to overcome, before we had a signed contract, which were achieved. The end result was a successful sale at a price which we were happy with. Post sale, Courtney continued to mediate to accommodate the purchasers requests, which ensured a smooth transition of ownership. As with our previous sale with Courtney, there is a realistic approach that is black and white, no ambiguity. This is what you need in changing market. It is clear it that it is about the customer, and not about the agent. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Courtney to anyone thinking of placing their house on the market. Down to earth, honest and integrity beyond reproach!
Huge thank you to Courtney for selling our house in such a professional way. The communication was excellent throughout and her commitment to us and our home never in doubt. We didn't just sell our house we also made a friend so thank you!
Garth and Kate Brown
There are a few things in this world that reserve a place of acknowledgement when it comes to exceptional personable service: A doctor/midwife that helps deliver a healthy baby, a trustworthy mechanic that offers sound and reliable service and an estate agent who helps a first time home buyer, new to the country, navigate the home buying process. In this, Courtney is a Godsend. From the first contact, through the negotiation process, to helping us get access to our new home to measure spaces for furniture planning before settlement date and then helping to arrange an extension on settlement date due to unforeseen complexities. All with a can do attitude. Finding a person in this industry, in any industry, who actually cares after the deal, is rare and a valuable attribute. She is up there as one of our favourite Kiwis. Thanks Courtney, you have set the bar very, very high that few will be able to contest.
We had the privilege to deal with Courtney buying a new house and were blown away by her friendliness, professionalism and care. We would highly recommend Courtney to anyone who would like to buy or sell a house.
A big thank you to Courtney for all the effort you put in to selling my house. You were very helpful and put in the extra yards to make sure the deal was done. You were extremely professional and got the deal done very quickly. My family and I can start our new journey in the sunny Hawkes Bay. I would highly recommend for anyone selling to use Courtney, who has been great to deal with.
Robert and family
Courtney was one of several estate agents we considered before we went to the market with our property, her no nonsense, honest and professional approach impressed us. Courtney sold the house in four days at the price we requested; we have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone entering the property market.
Bryan and Marie Hall
We met Courtney while visiting another home (way out of our price range). She got to know what we wanted and within 24 hours she showed us round the house we will soon be happily raising our kids in! She was just AMAZING! We understood she was working for the vendor, however, we could tell she genuinely wanted to help us find exactly what we wanted - and she did! She is so bubbly and upfront with a ‘no bullshit’ attitude (unusual for a real estate agent!). She has brilliant communication skills, constantly keeping us updated and made the whole process painless! We highly recommend Courtney as a Real Estate Agent and would happily sell or purchase a house through her again! Thanks so much Courtney!
Thanks so much for your assistance with the printing costs for our recent community planting day flyer. Your continued support for community projects in Riverhead is greatly appreciated and doesn’t go unnoticed.
Claire Walker ~ Riverhead Beautification Society
Courtney sold our house really quickly, which is exactly what we wanted so that we could move on to our new life in Rotorua. She was excellent to deal with, down-to-earth and honest. She kept us informed throughout the process and was always accessible when needed.
Thanks, Annie & Dale
We recently engaged Courtney Wood to market and sell our much loved home in Waimauku. Over the years we had seen her name attached to a number of homes/properties being marketed for sale and so it was decided that Courtney would be given the opportunity to look after us too. To say that we were totally pleased with her efforts, and the resulting sale of our home, would be a total understatement!! Her manner and communications with us were top-notch and exemplary; we were kept abreast of everything with incredible efficiency, and her positively and enthusiasm toward achieving a mutually desirable and extremely expedient result, was infectious.
We could not recommend her enough to anyone wishing to place the sale of their real estate into Courtney’s hands – she would be thoroughly worth the investment.
Paul and Sandy
Would like to say a big thank you for all the effort you put into negotiating the complexities involved in my purchase of 8 Amber Place. Your patience and professionalism in dealing with me and the vendors is to be greatly commended.
I wish you a long and successful career in what you have chosen to do and should I ever decide to sell No 8 you will be the first person I contact to conduct the transaction.
Looking forward to moving in to Amber Place in October.
Well done Courtney, you've managed to pull all the ends together on this one and I can only say thank you for a successful outcome for all concerned.
Thank you so much for all your hard work in selling our house. You were very easy to deal with and helped us throughout the whole process. You always kept us updated and communication was excellent. We are very happy with the results, thanks very much
Lauren and Damo
We engaged Courtney to sell our home after having had great previous dealings with her when we considered purchasing another home. We chose to go with Courtney for her invaluable knowledge of the local area, her understanding of the value of homes within the area and her knowledge of best method of sale. Due to moving cities, we had a very tight deadline and needed an unconditional sale. We put the pressure on Courtney to ensure she delivered this for us. She didn't disappoint, bringing three parties through the house the day prior to our first open home and managing to sign one up for a cash, unconditional offer on the spot. Courtney is professional yet down to earth and has a very rare and refreshing 'no bullshit' approach. She comes highly recommended.
Louise and Iain Chapman
We commissioned Courtney Wood to market our home for sale. Upon first meeting Courtney we were put at ease with her friendly easy going personality and realised that she would be a good fit to sell our home. The advice that Courtney gave us as to how to get the home reading for the market was really worthwhile. The open homes were conducted professionally and we felt okay leaving our house in Courtney's hands.
Marketing and followup and negotiation seem to be Courtneys strong points and enabled our home to sell within three weeks and at the price we wanted.
We would highly recommend Courtney to anyone considering selling their home.
Wayne Hagan and Glenn McIntyre
We engaged Courtney Wood as the sales agent of our property after meeting with her.
I originally chose to contact Courtney as she had previously placed a fridge magnet and shopping list in our letterbox and I had seen a large number of “Sold by Courtney Wood” signs around our general area. The other most important reason was that once I did contact Courtney she actually replied to the phone message that I left on her mobile! My husband and I had in the last year tried to contact numerous real estate agents about different properties they had listed and the possibility of the sale of our own property but found that as a rule the agents mostly did not bother to return our calls or try and get in touch – be it by phoning, texting or emailing. Buying and selling is a daunting enough prospect without having to contend with this as well! Courtney met with me at our property the same day I contacted her and proceeded to talk positively, but realistically, about the expectations we could and should achieve with the sale. Once we agreed to engage her for the process of selling our house and land everything was underway in a week and we had our first offer before official advertising was due to begin. It was very pleasing to have such a proactive agent at last. Courtney worked extremely well for us and spent time negotiating with prospective purchasers and listening to what we were wanting to achieve. We had quite a few prospective purchasers and three great offers from the day we signed our listing form. I would happily recommend Courtney as a very proactive sales agent who really worked for us, as the vendor, and made sure she made the most of every contact that came through the open home.
What can I say about Courtney Wood? I think she is awesome! We had tried to sell our house last year and it didn't go so well. We pulled it after a long stressful 5 months. So embarking on listing again was a nervous time. After meeting with Courtney we found her approach honest and refreshing. She knows the local area very well and uses that to her advantage. Her calm and professional delivery across to us alleviated our fears. Courtney advised us to go with her photos and I'm glad we did, amazing job by her photographer. We were sold in 4 weeks at the exact price Courtney said she could get! We were so surprised and relieved at first to celebrate! But we are very happy to be moving on. I can highly recommend using Courtney Wood to sell your house, you would be mad not to!!!!!
Courtney sold our family home for us and did so with professionalism and ease. We spoke to three agents and decided on Courtney as we felt she knew the market the best and would be able to get us the price we wanted. She was able to sell the house in just over a week, at a price we were very happy with. She kept us informed at all times, was very responsive and we felt safe knowing that she knew what she was doing during negotiations. The whole process was relatively stress-free and we walked away knowing that listing with Courtney was definitely the right decision.
Chloe and Johnny Stanton
Courtney helped us sell our house in July 2016. From our first meeting with her she was warm, helpful, knowledgable and we always knew she was on our side striving for the best result possible. Courtney was realistic in estimating our sale price and then delivered an even better result than we could have hoped for! She made the process for us easy, fun, stress free and kept us informed every step of the way. I would highly recommend Courtney to anyone wanting to sell their property.
Rachael Bailey - Huapai
Dave & I would like to take the opportunity to express our gratitude for your assistance throughout our purchasing process. Your local real estate knowledge and attention to detail was invaluable from the home selection, offer, and closing processes. We really appreciated your help in navigating the myriad of paperwork needed to close the deal within our short time frame. Thank you for helping us get into the perfect home that suits our family.
Tania & David Crowther
Courtney has a patient and very hardworking nature. She has a lovely manner, and as our real estate agent, managed to remain positive and quietly persistent through the sale and purchase process. Job done, pleased with the outcome.
Ron and Jackie Lansdowne
Courtney Wood is probably the most knowledgeable real estate person in the Riverhead market. We found working with her a pleasure and felt like she was there to help us during every step of the processes. She emanates a sense of trust-worthiness that makes you feel very secure during what is without a doubt a very involved process. Courtney is a true professional and puts her clients interests far above her own. We would be very happy to give Courtney our highest recommendation for anyone wanting to sell their property.
The Jackaman family
Having read Courtney's testimonials we wondered would we have a similar experience and yes we did. One email, a prompt reply, an appraisal followed by a late evening home visit to discuss our investment property. The property was listed with Courtney quite simply based on her style, laid back approach but most importantly her level of local knowledge. After three open homes a potential buyer was identified and through the process of negotiation a very successful deal was struck. Happy vendor, happy house buyer. It is worth noting that the property next door to ours came onto the market at the same time. Courtney achieved a significantly higher sell price versus their agents guide price. Based on our experience we cannot speak highly enough of Courtney. Teresa and David.
Courtney brings a wealth of experience which belies her youth. If you choose Courtney you will get a motivated realtor who is passionate about her role in helping you achieve your goals and who is delightful to work with. She is energetic, realistic and honest. Her marketing skills are enviable, and she just makes everything so easy. When we listed with Courtney my husband and I thought it would take weeks to sell our much loved family home. It took one open home and within two hours of that day closing we had two offers on the table. One week later and we went unconditional! A-MAZ-ING!
Wendy & Brian
After having a number of agents through our much loved home, we decided to list our home with Courtney. Right from the start Courtney sold herself to us. She was assertive in a polite way. Courtney didn’t give up on trying to win our business and kept her foot on the gas, never flinching. This showed us Courtney had the desire, motivation and determination required to sell our house. Her honest, no mucking around approach was refreshing. Our house went on the market within a week of meeting Courtney. She kept us updated through-out the entire marketing period letting us know buyer feedback every step of the way. Courtney was open to any suggestions we made, which weren’t many, but she stated we knew the house better than her so we should let her know of anything that would help to market the house. After 2 weeks and 4 days we had an offer. The purchasers came in at a very low price, however with Courtney’s exceptional negotiating skills and never give up attitude she was able to bring the sale price up to a value which we had agreed on with Courtney, when deciding on which agent to market our home. With an unconditional agreement signed many agents would perhaps disappear into the sunset, but not Courtney. Courtney has continued to stay in contact with us making sure all is going smoothly. We would highly recommend Courtney to any home owner wishing to sell and will definitely keep in contact with her to sell future properties.
Byron and Shelley Martin
Courtney made the process of selling our house very easy. Her passion for real estate and knowledge of the current market resulted in us selling at a price that exceeded our expectation. We are delighted with the work Courtney did for us, and would not hesitate to recommend Courtney to anyone selling their house.
Stephen and Glenda Keith
If you need an incredible real estate agent who is going to get you the best price for your home then I suggest you use Courtney Wood. Courtney is extremely easy to deal with, professional, dedicated and extremely efficient at getting the best price she can and more for your home. We listed with Courtney and our home was sold in a week and a half and for more than we were expecting! I would highly recommend Courtney to anyone selling their property!
Courtney did an amazing job in selling our home in Huapai. She kept us informed every step of the way right from the appraisal to signing the agreement that sold the house.
Her professionalism and lovely nature made her our agent of choice. We would have no hesitation in recommending her to any prospective seller.
Adrienne & Peter Higgins
Courtney recently sold our property in Riverhead. She was fantastic and always professional and personable. Her down to earth personality and knowledge of the property market left us feeling confident we would get the results we wanted. It was great having an agent that didn't speak in jargon and that was totally upfront with what she thought we could achieve. No talking it up and making promises that were unrealistic. Our home sold quickly and for more than we were expecting, we couldn't be happier with the marketing and services Courtney provided. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Courtney to anybody looking to sell their home
We engaged Courtney in December 2015 to sell my mothers home in Riverhead, we had an immediate rapport with her, she took her time evaluating the property and sat down with us to discuss the price, open homes and presentation. Courtney was particularly excited as my mum had lived in this home for 57 years and on the same site for 64 years and this was the first time it had been placed on the market, it was a very quick solid sale. She was very professional and great to deal with and we would highly recommend her if your are selling your home.
There are many real estate agents and they all advertise why you should deal with them!! When it came to choosing an agent we choose the No1 agent in the local area - Courtney Wood. Our experience was excellent. Courtney’s relaxed style of customer service made the selling process very easy. A sale was achieved in a very short period of time – thanks to Courtney’s skills. If you want the No 1 agent in the West for results then ring Courtney Wood. We did!

We were happily surprised by Courtney’s fantastic communication, electric enthusiasm and her efforts above and beyond the usual. She worked hard to ensure we were able to secure our dream home, at a fair price, and that upon possession it looked photo perfect. She really knows the area and it is no surprise to us that she is a success. She has our recommendation.
H & S Coupe - Hamish Coupe Solicitor
We would like to say thanks for the great service you gave us for the purchase of our new home. As we were new to the area you were so helpful with everything, and the process went so smoothly.
Eoin and Gaylene
Following the successful sale of our house Elaine and I wanted to drop you a line to thank you for all that you have done for us. To go from “let’s sell” to “unconditionally sold in less than a week” is really quite remarkable. You pulled out all the stops and really came through for us. This is the second house that you have sold for us, and now we are also buying through you – and I cannot speak highly enough of all that you do. You are passionate, enthusiastic, understanding, empathetic and knowledgeable, and you get results – all attributes that are really needed in the stressful business of buying and selling houses. In other words “You make it easy!” You are excellent at what you do, and I would, without any hesitation, absolutely recommend your services to anyone requiring the services of a Real Estate Agent.
Frank and Elaine Greer
It is our pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Courtney Wood… we listed our home with Courtney and she had sole agency to market and sell our property.
Throughout all transactions and negotiations she has been professional, friendly and supportive. She has offered advice when needed, kept us up to date with progress and guided us through the very quick and efficient sale of our home. Courtney definitely made the whole experience operate as smoothly as possible and with the least amount of stress and the final outcome was better than we could have ever imagined. We would have no hesitation in recommending Courtney as an excellent real estate agent to anyone considering selling their home.
Mark and Sandra Watson
My house had been listed previously with another agent, and Courtney took up the listing, and presented my property to market in a most professional way, taking a totally different and fresh approach. This resulted in a successful offer, after just one open home. All feedback received during the open home was quickly provided to me, and she has that very special ability of being able to match people to the type of property they are seeking. Courtney was very supportive throughout the negotiation process, with a positive and happy result for both parties. I can very highly recommend Courtney. I love her direct and honest style, whilst at all times maintaining her professionalism. She truly is a breath of fresh air.
Carol van Stockum
Courtney could sell ice blocks to Eskimos ...... No exaggeration! Why believe me though??? How about some cold hard facts:
• we had already been with an agent for 2.5 months
• all we were getting was negative feedback *we weren't getting people through the house
• the other agent's suggestion..... Drop the price, drop it again..... And again!!
• the next drop was below CV
We let the agent go at that point and rang Courtney. Long story short..... A week later we were sold!!!!!! But wait...... There's more..... We got over a million !!!!!!!! Well over our CV. Not only does Courtney have an amazing personality....... Her marketing is incredible! With our first agent after a week on Trade Me we had 1000 views. With Courtney, we had 1000 views in ONE day! PLEASE don't make the same mistake as us. It was not only a VERY stressful time ( did I mention we had already bought another property ) but..... It cost us thousands of dollars that we did not need to spend. Ring Courtney FIRST you will not be sorry. We cannot thank Courtney enough for what she has done. She kept in constant contact with us every step of the way, even after the house was sold.
Buying and selling houses can be one of the most stressful times of your life. This was something we never experienced with Courtney. We bought our house from Courtney and my husband and I were so impressed with her professionalism, enthusiasm and knowledge of the current market that we listed our property with Courtney. Our home sold after the first open home and never once did I feel pressured, stressed or worried about the decision we had made. A huge thanks to Courtney this was a wonderful experience for all of the family and we are now in our dream house and loving everything about it. Thanks Courtney from all of us, as our dream wouldn’t have come true if it wasn’t for you.
The Errey Family
As a real estate agent myself I wanted a top marketer and negotiator to market and sell my lifestyle property. I chose Courtney based on her honest approach, ease to work with and dedication for selling a considerable amount of property for premium prices, a reflection of her passion and top negotiation skills. Courtney leaves no stone unturned when it comes to selling property. Not only did she achieve a clean and favourable sale after only two weeks of marketing and open homes, she also achieved my dream price! Her commitment, knowledge and passion for real estate is second to none and she takes pride in ensuring that she has exhausted the buying opportunity and negotiated the best price possible for each and every property she lists. Her approach is unique, she lists, markets and sells each and every property herself and uses a common sense approach to working with her vendors. I find I am now constantly singing her praises and recommending her to everyone I know that is in the market to sell their home. Her negotiation skills and ability to simplify the process made what can be a very stressful time, a breeze and I would happily recommend her to sell your home every day of the week! Don’t hesitate, Courtney will help you realise your dreams! Courtney, thank you, you have been fantastic and achieved the best price for me enabling me to move on with my new life. I wish you well and know that you personally will continue to dominate the real estate market and provide and enviable service to all.
Courtney is great at selling homes. I first met Courtney whilst looking for a new home in an area which I was not too familiar with. After viewing a range of different properties, I was very impressed with the quality of homes she had to show me. Courtney has expert knowledge of the area and seemed to know exactly the type of home I was searching for. The purchase process went very smoothly and I am now settled into my lovely new home.
We had Courtney as the agent on our recent property purchase. I found her friendly and easy to deal with. She was always contactable and replied to messages or emails promptly. There were some issues with the LIM during our purchase and had it not been for Courtneys constant assistance and communication we would probably have pulled out of the deal.
Courtney has recently sold our home in Riverhead. From our first meeting Courtney impressed us with her professionalism, her advice and her knowledge on the local market. She created an excellent marketing plan that created plenty of interest in our house and resulted in us getting several offers, and selling at a price we were very happy with. Courtney is very hard working, and we found her a pleasure to deal with and would happily recommend her to anyone. We found Courtney to be really professional and lovely to deal with. Such a big purchase, you want a straight shooter and someone trustworthy. Thanks for everything.
We recently used the services of Courtney Wood of Premium Real Estate and really can't recommend her enough. She was such a lovely person to deal with. Personable, professional with great communication throughout the process. Nothing was too much trouble or a problem. She sold our house after just 2 open homes. No stress. No hassle.
Sue and Martin Riddle
Courtney was a fantastic agent to work with and we highly recommend her. The whole process was made very easy by Courtney even though we were under some pressure to sell having already bought elsewhere. Unlike a lot of agents, Courtney never tried to talk down our price expectations and her confidence never wavered that she would sell our house quickly and for a good price – and she did just that. Having never sold a property by negotiation we relied heavily on Courtney to help us with that part of the process and it was great being able to have her guide us on what to do. We always felt 100% that she put us first and her focus was getting the best price possible not just getting a sale. She was professional, efficient, and personable - an all round great agent.
Earlier this month we contracted Courtney Wood from Premium to sell our lifestyle property in Waimauku. Of the Real Estate people that we met, she was the only person that we felt had the personality, and real interest, in selling our property. She was also the only person that agreed with our valuation of the property. A conditional offer, at the price we were after, was made on the property after the first “Open House”. This was followed by a backup unconditional offer the following week. We were very impressed with Courtney’s enthusiasm and also that she kept us briefed on what was happening at all times. If you are selling or buying, we would definitely recommend Courtney Wood.
Robert and Elizabeth Brooke
Jon and I wanted to say a huge thank you to you for the way in which you marketed and sold our Riverhead lifestyle property. The photographs were superb and not at all misleading. We appreciated your honest, direct approach. Your energy level is admirable, you are very hard working, committed and always have a smile on your face. How you manage to do it all is a mystery to us. We are very grateful to you that we can now move on to our new adventure.
J and J Rooney
Courtney is an extremely motivated person who did a great job of selling my property. She was helpful in all ways, giving advice where needed, and making me feel very comfortable and at ease about the process while achieving an excellent result. She obtained a contract on my property after three days on the market which resulted in the sale at a price I was very happy with. Courtney inspires confidence with good reason - she is very professional with a great knowledge of the market producing an excellent result for me, while at the same time being a lovely person who is a delight to have met. I would have no hesitation in recommending Courtney to anyone wanting to sell their property, and would certainly use her again. Thanks Courtney!"
After having our lifestyle property on the market for over a year, with no results, we switched real estate agents to Courtney from Premium. We liked her approach and within 2 weeks she had 2 offers on the table at the price we were asking. Obviously pleased with the result we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to others.
Mark & Jenny Harris
I appreciated Courtney's friendly and relaxed manner. Buying a house can be so stressful, but I didn't experience stress at all. I felt she had my best interests in mind, as well as doing the best for the seller. I would recommend Courtney to anyone - helpful, friendly but professional and knowledgeable.
Courtney was the vendors agent on our new home in Riverhead. She was great to work with and while doing her job of vendors agent also understood where we (the buyers) were coming from. Courtney went 'above and beyond' and organised for us to meet with the vendors and also arranged for other household items to be sold to us. I would recommend Courtney to anyone selling their home and would use Courtney if the time came for us to sell in Riverhead!
Llewellyn & Tammy Giles
I recently worked with Courtney in selling a lifestyle property which had been previously listed with two other agencies over an 18 month period with no result. The house is large and of a unique style. It was her suggestion to remove the property from the market for 3-4 weeks and relaunch it with a new look. Courtney comes from a refreshing angle to marketing a property which gives her excellent success. She has a natural entrepreneurial flair which is noticeably different. She listens, understands and values your input. Within a week Courtney had an excellent sales result and an outstanding back up offer. I enjoyed working with Courtney and found her warm and friendly, market savvy and enthusiastic with a professional approach to attention and detail in all areas.
I had complete confidence in her and would highly recommend her to sell any property.
It was a big step for us listing our first family home and not really knowing where we were going to go to once sold. Thankfully we had Courtney as our esteemed and very motivated agent, who not only sold our house for the sale result we were hoping for but also encouraged us to look at another property she had listed which she thought would suit our family. It turned out to be exactly what we had in mind, in the area we favoured and we were fortunate enough to also purchase it - thanks to Courtney. It was a pleasure dealing with Courtney in every way and we would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone considering selling their home.

Daniel and I would like to thank Courtney for the amazing job that she did finding us our dream home in Riverhead. She kept us fully informed of properties coming on to the market and got us through as soon as she found something ideal. We viewed the property at an open home on Sunday and had our offer accepted Sunday night. A perfect no fuss outcome. As a result I highly recommend Courtney Wood and will always look to her first if I have any further house transactions in the future.
Courtney is an enthusiastic, very pro-active agent with great ideas on how to sell. She way out did our price expectations and within a week!! She was fantastic throughout the process at responding to calls, ringing or texting on progress or any developments and always has a positive cheerful manner which makes her a pleasure to deal with. I believe she deserves the title of "the best agent in Riverhead"!!! Thanks again Courtney - you've been tremendous in every way.
If you need agency representation in Riverhead, Courtney is without question the best choice. In the process of selling our house we went through a number of agents in the area who failed to meet expectation. Within a week of Courtney picking up agency, she not only Sold our property, but vastly exceeded our price expectations. She was also a pleasure to deal with and has clearly mastered the sale process. I would actually go further than recommending her services, I would say if you are selling property in Riverhead - you are stupid not to use her!
Courtney Wood is extremely hardworking and professional and her upbeat, positive 'can-do' manner made her a pleasure to work with. Courtney's knowledge and understanding of the local market is excellent and we would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone wanting to sell their property. We were always confident that she would sell our home which she did within days of it going on the market.

Courtney Wood was our realtor for the sale of our Riverhead home. I found her incredibly pleasant to work with. She managed to always work viewings and open homes in to suit our young family. She made herself always available to answer any questions we had. We had a quick sale and were happy with the price we got. Courtney dealt with the purchaser in a very professional manner, which led to quick, hassle free turnover. Courtney also put in a lot of time post sale to ensure everyone was happy. I would recommend Courtney Wood as a real estate agent for the sale of your home.
I am writing to thank you for another successful sale, one to top all others. I am very grateful for your expertise, from the marketing through to execution of sale, in record time (after only one open home). In all from the time of listing to marketing and affecting a sale was completed over a period of only 3 weeks. I fully trust your expertise and experience to master specifically the right market with carefully considered advertising costs and your skilful negotiating skills to close the deal. Also appreciated your careful handling of tenants thereby minimising disruption of the impending sale process.
I am well pleased with the achieved sale price, exceeding my expectations. I enjoy working together with you in making the whole process an easy and pleasurable experience.
Courtney’s professionalism and friendliness made her a pleasure to deal with. She created an eye catching, high quality marketing plan, was excellent communicating feedback to us and more than met our expectations for this experience. We were extremely happy with the price she negotiated for us with the new owners and we would absolutely recommend Courtney to all our friends and family when selling their homes.

We went to Courtney for help after a not so good experience with other real estate agents, Courtney stepped in and gave us assurance that she would manage the set back that we had in a positive manner and re-list and advertise the property accordingly. True to her word, Courtney stepped up to the plate and managed to sort us out. We felt Courtney was honest in the appraisal she put forward and the feedback that she provided every step of the way was really reassuring put all this together with Courtney's energy, enthusiasm and professionalism meant that we had peace of mind for the sale process of our house. Courtney delivered on her promise and we are very happy with the sale. We unreservedly would highly recommend using Courtney to anyone selling their home.

I have known Courtney for close to four years now, not long after taking residence in my house in Huapai. Over this time she periodically made contact with me concerning my property and kept me in touch with what the market was doing. She always has a friendly way of conducting herself along with a strong air of no b/s business. When it finally came time to sell my house I had it appraised by five different agents all coming back to me with similar figures and all very conservative at that. Then Courtney sold my neighbours property, a neighbour who had recently been appraised like mine and at a similar value. Courtney sold for $100k above those appraisals. So due to her positive attitude, perseverance and track record I gave Courtney the task of selling my house. With her advice I proceeded to prepare it for sale. After one open home Courtney had engaged someone in negotiations and had them returning to the property that same evening to talk about an offer. Just before that meeting Courtney called me and asked me what price I was hoping for. I knew what I was asking was at the edge of what was feasible, so I told her and left it in her hands. She called half an hour later with an offer 10k above what I was hoping for. Courtney knows the Kumeu, Huapai district like the proverbial back of her hand and is well established in the area with her family. She always told me that she would get top dollar for my house and she ended up proving that to me. In fact other estate agents who were still making contact during this time said in disbelieving tones, if you can get that sort of money then good on you! For anyone who is selling or buying, I would recommend Courtney to do the job with honesty, speed and savvy.
It is with pleasure I write a reference for the sale of my property for Courtney. When I first approached Courtney to sell my property I always found her to be friendly and professional. Her understanding of the wider market helped me to understand where my property sat within the market so I was happy for Courtney to represent me in the sale of my property. Courtney sold my property after a week and got my asking price. I was very happy as the whole process was quick and easy even though i was overseas at the time. I can not recommend Courtney highly enough and would not hesitate in using Courtney again in the future.
We found dealing with you a pleasure, we've been to a lot of open homes over the last few months and unfortunately there are a few agents who are quite unhelpful and not particularly friendly! So we were really pleased to purchase our next home from someone as cheerful and friendly as yourself, and who made the whole process as painless as can be.

Courtney’s professional, passionate, honest and can do attitude are just some of the attributes, which made selling our house stress free, Courtney told us as she saw it without any innuendos or euphemisms. Being told by some other agencies our expectations were too high, she endeavoured and succeeded to negotiate the very best outcome for us in a very short time frame, while respecting our wishes at all times. Her honesty, guidance and tenacity was very much appreciated. We have and always will recommend you for your great service. Simply the best.

We are so pleased we chose Courtney Wood to sell our Riverhead property. Within one day of being on the market we had an offer and very shortly after our house was SOLD at a price we were very happy with. From the outset Courtney impressed us with her sound knowledge of the local market, her strategic approach to selling and friendly manner. Courtney kept us informed every step of the way and her negotiating skills are exceptional. Courtney is a pleasure to work with and we would certainly use Courtney again. We highly recommend Courtney to anyone wanting to sell their property.
Rebekah and Roger Pokura
We are very glad we chose Courtney to sell our house. Not only did she get us a much better price than other agents had quoted, but her attention to detail and regular updates made us feel that she had everything in hand.
Barnaby and Sahiko
It’s nice to get the sale of our house completed before Christmas. I just wanted to say you where the perfect fit with selling this character Villa. I thought your professionalise suited the kind of clientele we wanted to attract at that higher end of the market. I believe your persistence in representing us whilst in tricky negotiation was admirable and got us our best financial outcome that the market had to offer. I would have no hesitation to recommend Courtney to my friends and family in the future.
Dean Payn and Rachel Blackie
Courtney did an incredible job for us. The house was sold under challenging circumstances, and Courtney managed this effortlessly, despite my frazzled nerves. She kept cool and calm with excellent communication. She maintained contact with all parties that was respectful, clear and supportive of a good outcome for everyone involved. She struck the perfect balance of professionalism, and a very real and genuine approach. I was so pleased with the final result and I don’t believe this could have been done without the patience and integrity Courtney carried right through.
Thank you Courtney for ensuring the sale of our property went smoothly. Your attention to detail in helping us to prepare the house for sale was excellent. We were kept updated on a regular basis after every open home which we really appreciated and the whole process from beginning to end was carried out professionally. We would happily recommend you to anyone who is looking to putting their home on the market.
Tony and Kathy
Courtney was a pleasure to have as our real estate agent, very knowledgeable and easy to get in contact with. Courtney is very motivated to achieve the best possible outcome for the vendors. Thank you for all of your hard work.
Amanda and Jake
Thanks a million for your hard work, and getting us a good price, it’s been a pleasure to have act on our behalf!

Recently, my partner and I made the decision to place our home on the market. We were very aware of the choice of Real Estate agent’s operating in our area, so made the sensible choice to obtain assessments from 3 local agent’s, to enable us to get an appreciation of the market, the possible market value of our home, and a feel of the agent who would be acting on our behalf. Courtney Wood was the third agent to discuss our property. We felt instantly at ease and very comfortable with her approach, advice and her assessment of the market value. With regards to the market value, the 2 previous agents, severely undervalued our property. If we had of accepted either of the other 2 agents, we would have had between $50-$100,000 difference in our sale vale of the property. It was very evident that they didn’t know the residential market, or hadn’t done enough research regarding sales and demand/interest in Huapai. Courtney’s communication with us during the quick process to the sale was excellent, always informing us and keeping us updated. As was her marketing, negotiation skills and advice. Courtney’s “straight up” approach is much appreciated. Needless to say, we are extremely happy with the sale price and process. Both Jenna and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Courtney, and Premium Real Estate, to any future customers.
