“Martin and Caroline were recently responsible for marketing and selling our Auckland cliff-top property. The Kellands by-line of “homes to love” was mirrored by their personal approach of showing “love for homes”, leaving no stone unturned to optimise the sales result, offering sage advice as required, taking care with due diligence, showing passion and sensitivity when dealing with prospective buyers. Kellands as a prestige boutique agency punches well above its weight in the market assisted in no uncertain terms through the efforts and professionalism of this dynamic duo. Would we use them again?...you bet we would! - Vendors - Graeme & Mitch Hunter
Martin Dobson and Caroline Daniel were recommended by friends who had a very positive experience. We were not disappointed and they exceeded our very high expectations. Having previously dealt with various franchise agencies we were delighted with the increased level of service and attention given by Kellands. Their in depth local knowledge was supported by highly detailed statistical pricing information which proved to be remarkably accurate. The weekly open home activity reports leading up to auction day were brilliant. At no time did we feel intruded upon, the campaign was conducted with style and the upmost consideration. All queries and communications were responded to immediately. The marketing was perfectly tailored to our property. Do yourself a favour and speak to them whether buying or selling. Martin and Caroline made a difficult task easy and achieved a fantastic result. – Vendor - P Brennan & A Pickersgill - Ponsonby
“We have bought and sold a number of properties over the last few years and our experience with Martin and Caroline was without doubt our best experience by far. They were proactive, personally involved in every aspect of our property sale, took a real interest in us and our property and communicated constantly” We would definitely engage them again and recommend their service to anyone wanting a superior selling experience” Vendors – W and E O’Keeffe – Herne Bay
"Martin and Caroline, recently did a fantastic job selling our house.We felt in very safe hands with Martin & Caroline and they demonstrated why we had made the right decision to go with them throughout the campaign. Their personal service was outstanding in terms of advice, reliability and honesty in communication. On auction day Martin fell nothing short of proving how effective a skilled agent can make a huge difference to ensure a highly positive outcome. We have now purchased one house off Martin and sold two houses with him. We would thoroughly recommend Martin and Caroline for anyone that is looking for a great result in Grey Lynn, Westmere, Herne Bay etc". Vendors - M & N Donaghue - Grey Lynn
"I feel very thankful we had Martin and Caroline guiding us through the process of selling our home. They showed right from the beginning how professional, hard working and trustworthy they are. They brought possible purchasers from out of the immediate Mt Albert area
to our open homes. As a result we had a very active auction and achieved an incredibly good result for the sale of our home. Thank you so much Martin and Caroline for looking after us so well!" Vendors - Chrissy & Don - Mt Albert
"Martin and Caroline recently sold 2 properties for us. They assisted us with staging information and they made suggestions for décor improvements and then made sure the presentation was perfect. They prepared marketing brochures and designed print and Web advertising that was a step above the rest. We observed from their actions with the buyers that they were not only looking for a sale but they were truly interested in getting the best outcome for us as vendors. We found them a true pleasure to deal with and can recommend them. We found they had exceptional attention to detail and delivered exactly what they promised."
Vendors - Errol and Dianne - Auckland City
"What can we say? Caroline & Martin completely blew us away with their personality, direction, people skills, patience and of course, professionalism. When we were looking around to sell our house, we were worried we’d end up on that classic real estate conveyor belt of being treated as a number or dollar sign. Caroline & Martin changed all that. They made everyone feel welcomed, supported and also in the know when it came to our house. For what is normally regarded as a very stressful process, they made it an entirely pleasant experience. And the results speak for themselves. We can not recommend Caroline & Martin at Kellands enough". Vendors - Laurie & Matt - Western Springs
"Hi Caroline I just wanted to say thank you for your involvement with us regarding the Richmond road property. I was impressed with your work ethic, responsiveness to our queries and approach to marketing from a prospective buyer and vendor perspective. I wish you the best going forward. Kind regards, Grace" Vendor - Grey Lynn
