“Friendly, professional honest hard working company and extremely efficient.”
H & J Parsons
“Our experience was like taking ‘ A walk in the park ‘. From get go we felt our home was in great hands with Marc & Wendy , anything we did not fully understand was followed up by email in great detail which was fantastic communication. They are both a credit to Total Realty.”
L & J Gould
“Sherini was professional, presenting everything in a good manner. Gave us options and went ahead with our choices. Kept us informed all the way.”
“I sold on behalf of my elderly friend. We found Alison and Mike to be very professional and personable who delivered their service without waffle. They didn't over promise or inflate their services and kept us informed with good and bad news. They delivered a quick sale and a realistic commission rate compared to other competitors. Highly recommended.”
“Working with Matt Hurd is great, hassle free. His high professionalism is amazing. We will definitely recommend Matt, of course Total Realty to other people who need help with selling or buying properties.”
“Marc is excellent at running open homes, and talking with potential buyers. He sets just the right tone - is friendly and interested, but not pushy. We liked the way he remembered potential buyers from previous houses he had sold, who came to our open homes. When it comes to knowledge of the market, previous sales and attention to detail, Wendy is the most amazing real estate agent we have ever worked with. Previous agents we have sold with had secretaries and personal assistants as they were too important to bother themselves with details. Wendy, however communicated directly with us brilliantly throughout the sale of our house and thought of absolutely everything. We are very grateful to her for making the process so easy. We like the way Marc and Wendy work so well together as a team.”
A Vinnell & D Rodda
“My experience was very positive and easy. Wayne has an innate ability to make people feel at ease regardless of what is happening and the surrounding circumstances.”
“Rachel was simply fantastic nothing was a problem and she kept in contact all the time. Her willingness and ease to do the sale of our Christchurch home from our new home remotely as were now living in Hamilton was exceptional.”
L Be Jaimes

“I have dealt with a few estate agents in my time. I have NEVER experienced two estate agents like Tracey and Trevor who go the extra mile, who are pleasant and are willing to help even if it means putting themselves out. Honest and down to earth, and believe me these are rare qualities in today's world. Nothing was every a problem, even when we were stuck at certain points of the sale, Tracey and Trevor came to the rescue. Outstanding.”
Vincent & Leanne Gombert
“Tony was excellent. He explained the processes and was thorough. He kept us informed but not overwhelmingly so. He seemed to work well with the potential buyers. He didn't treat us like idiots, ie he was respectful, and giving us time to make our own decisions. He communicated well with both of us.”
Wayne & Mary Page
“I had an excellent experience, Randa took a different approach which showed her knowledge of the local market and what I was trying to achieve.”
“There isn't enough time in the day to explain how unbelievably incredible Marc and Wendy are. Above and beyond doesn't even slightly come close to the work they put in. We were working with two homes and short deadlines, Wendy chased LIM's, investigated things with EQC and the council, they did so much work that isn't necessarily what they normally do and it was so so so appreciated. The communication was amazing, we were always in the loop, they were always available, they calmed our nerves when it was needed and explained everything so you understood every step of the process, it really feels like a weight is taken off your shoulders and you are in a team when you are working with Marc and Wendy. They are professional, honest, reliable and take so much pride in their work. I could write rave reviews about them all day!”
India & Zeke Bell
“Always updated me to progress. Nothing was a bother and always felt I could contact her if I had any questions ever at what is a busy time for her. I will be always happy to recommend her to anyone.”

Sam & Rosemary
“I have always had a strong distrust in real estate agents, but I was completely blown away at how honest our agent was and at the integrity of the whole company. When it came to the bottom line, the agent fetched more than what was estimated in my appraisals, not to mention taking a very reasonable fee. This company will be my first port of call. Thank you!”
“It's great to work with a Sales Consultant who is so dedicated to getting the best price for the seller. I will recommend Total Realty to anyone who is thinking of selling.”
