Thirteen years in Real Estate with one company could be seen as a lifetime. Twenty six years in the business could be interpreted as ‘insanity’. Not so – for Shannon (a fully qualified AREINZ ) loves the business and retains the same enthusiasm as she had when she began as a rookie in 1986.
The industry has evolved through great changes in that time, and Shannon has embraced these changes with vigour, upskilled and continued to provide the same empathetic, sound, respectful service to both clients and customers alike.
Working predominantly in the coastal Milford Takapuna areas, Shannon is a much respected identity within the local real estate professional community.
She has long appreciated that the sale of a home is not “just another transaction”. It is a big event in the lives of the people involved. You will not be neglected. The sale process will be a collaboration between you as “the client” and Shannon as your agent. You will be kept fully and honestly informed from beginning to the successful conclusion.
Ultimately, results are Shannon’s greatest testament and they number too many to list.
I appreciate the professional way you helped me as I worked through the time-consuming process of selling my property in order to make the purchase, especially the way you kept in touch with any developments. I was aware that you were working for your vendors, as you were their agent, but I also knew that I could rely on you for your assistance when needed. Your continuing after-sales service was also superb and welcomed.
Over the past 2 years we have had many dealings with Shannon and Maria of Premium Real Estate. They have somehow managed to make both the buying and selling processes as stress free as possible with their totally professional and honest attitude. Communication and co-operation would seem to be the watchword! We would recommend them unreservedly to anyone planning a real estate venture, either sale or purchase.

I wish to convey my gratitude to both you ladies and to Premium Real Estate in selling my home in Takapuna. Your expertise, advice and professionalism, brought the sale of my much loved home to a very satisfactory result to both parties. Your presence and the Open Homes was very much appreciated, as you worked tirelessly and sincerely in welcoming prospective buyers into my home. I would recommend to anyone selling or buying a property, to contact either Shannon or Maria, as their vast experience in Real Estate is unsurpassable.
We have known Shannon Doell and Maria Todd for many years, and with our knowledge of their unimpeachable business ethics and impressive results with the marketing of North Shore properties, we were delighted that they agreed to act as our agents when we decided to sell the bungalow in Hillcrest next door to our own home, that we had been renting out for the past 16 years. We knew the property was in a very desirable location, and after a month or so of low-key but effective advertising, we were able to agree with Shannon and Maria on a realistic asking price. After just two “open homes”, we were delighted when they advised us that they had found a purchaser who was prepared to pay our asking price and who quickly confirmed the sale as unconditional in February 2014. Shannon and Maria were totally professional in their dealings with us and kept us fully informed of progress as their sales campaign unfolded. We are pleased to recommend them to anyone who wants to sell their home, and is looking for professional, knowledgeable agents to manage the transaction.

We engaged Shannon and Maria to market the 234m2 Windermere penthouse apartment that had been home to our parents during their senior years. It was a home with sentimental value and unique lifestyle appeal and, for that reason, we needed sales agents with a respectful, committed approach and clear communication skills to market this property with a fixed price. Shannon and Maria delivered all of that with professionalism, patience and diligence. They brought us a price close to what we agreed at the outset was a realistic price. Their ongoing commitment included a Herald display advertising campaign and Herald Homes editorial. It lifted the profile of the marketing campaign which resulted in stiff competition between two buyers just prior to finalising the sale. Shannon Doell and Maria Todd were recommended to us as professional North Shore residential property experts. We confidently recommend them as anyone wanting to sell their home.
Robert and Vaughan Stebbing
We have recommended Maria and Shannon to two of our friends who were unable to sell after having a property on the market for many months with other agents. Both properties sold after a short period of marketing by Premium. If you want your ego stroked and expectations raised, these are not the ladies to do it. However, once they have a qualified purchaser they will folllow every opportunity to promote your property and at the same time keep you fully informed on buyer feedback, the market and, most importantly, what it will take for you to sell your property.
Peter & Sue
David and I would like to thank you for the professional and outstanding service you consistently gave us regarding the sale of our home. At the time of contacting you, we were under considerable time pressure and the speed that you managed to get the process underway was very important to us. From memory the photography was completed within the day! The timely nature of every aspect of the sale process has continued to the very end. This was coupled with excellent communication and feedback throughout the process. Your reliable, honest nature gave us the confidence in the process and you also adapted your style to manage us very well. The result was that we very much enjoyed dealing with you and at what was a stressful time was made less so with your involvement. We felt that the Premium brand and the advertising attracted the appropriate people for our house and you managed to generate good interest and numbers through the open home and interested parties during the week.
We have no hesitation in recommending you and Premium to others wanting to sell or buy a home. We wish you continued success. Thank you once again.
Suzanne and David Hansen
All the Shanahans would like to thank you for the immense time and energy you put into the selling of our home in Sanders Avenue. We very much appreciate your professionalism and dedication and would not fail to recommend you to others in the 'Premium' section of the market.
The Shanahan Family
I wish to thank you for the way you handled the listing of our property in Sanders Avenue which resulted in being able to move elsewhere. With respect to your professional manner and negotiation skills, not withstanding the declining market at the time, I really appreciated the outcome and I consider the sale amount was at the top end of the market and would certainly recommend you to other possible buyers.
Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and determination in selling our house. You never let us feel that we weren't important on your agenda, which is huge for a vendor and we are really pleased with the outcome.
Sue & Rod
