“A company with a professional and friendly team member who had a great understanding of the market and was lovely and helpful to work with.”

R Withell

“The number one difference is clearly the large amount of money saved on commission and marketing cost. Other real estate agents told us that we would lose more on the sale price than we would save on the commission, but we are absolutely convinced that it wasn't the case as we got several high offers in which clearly the buyers had offered their maximum price, with the top ones exceeding our highest hopes. The sale was extremely quick (10 days after listing, only two open homes) which was another bonus. We were extremely pleased with the professionalism and attention to details Marc and Wendy demonstrated in every step of the process. As we were interested in another property they were promoting, we saw how they manage their open homes and had never seen such quality of service before. In summary, we highly recommend Total Realty and particularly Marc and Wendy.”

J & L Ehinger

“Total Realty is the complete package. A slick and professional advertising package that is far-reaching through print media and online content. All communications through Dean (the agent) and the Total Realty office was timely and well presented. Value for money based on fees, is a cut above any other agency.”

C Geddes

“Excellent service.”

G Earnshaw & C Lindsay

“Love the commission rate.”

J Lewis

“Tony offered great advise and the whole selling process was very easy. The way the house was presented in the media outlets was outstanding.”

R Carr

“Excellent service. Raewyn communicated everything very well and promptly. She gave me options without pushing her own opinion and worked hard to get the best price for the property. I am very happy with the service I received. I would not hesitate to use again and recommend Total Realty to friends. It was a smooth process and I am glad to have been lucky enough to have Raewyn and Total Realty sell my property.”

I Wilson

“Selling with Total Realty was great. Rachel made the process things easy for us to understand and supported us through some tricky things that popped up. Have been singing her praises to anyone that even makes a peep about selling. I'm so tired of hearing that lower commission means less effort put in because we were blown away by how amazing using Total Realty was!”

A White

“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.”

B Vuleta

“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.”

K Wilson

“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.”

G Ma

“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.”

J Cooper

“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

“We found the whole experience from start of the listing, to final settlement, through Alison and Mike to be excellent and will recommend them to anyone in the future.”

K & M Smart

“Mark was great to deal with put us at ease the moment we met and got us a good deal on selling the house.”

S Munro

“We had a very understanding sales person who was very friendly, got the job done, and we knew he was contactable any time we needed to.”

C Barton

“Randa had been great to deal with. She kept us updated very often. Effective communication!”
