"Recently Michelle Kennedy and Kim Diack acted as Agents to sell our property at 108 Commercial Rd, Helensville. The property is an old BNZ building. I am delighted to say both Michelle and Kim really worked hard to sell our property. I remember Michelle saying finding the buyers was like *finding the needle in a haystack*. They persisted for over a year and now the property is sold. At all times they were optimistic, cheerful and always professional. They kept in contact throughout the entire time our place was on the market and were much more positive than us. I am happy that we made contact with Michelle and Kim and that they were the Agents who sold the property. This letter is to let you know you have two gems working for you."

- Lauren Lysaght

"Kim and Michelle are nice, patient, professional and always willing to help. They gave us important and useful information to help us make decision on buying our lovely apartment. Highly recommended."

"Michelle worked tirelessly in her endeavors to find us the perfect space and liaised closely with the owners of the property, as well as keeping us fully informed of the progress at all times. Michelle worked really hard for us, always following up with emails and telephone calls which made the process so much easier.

Michelle has been a pleasure to deal with - very efficient, honest, approachable and friendly. Nothing seems to phase her and this has resulted in us finding an awesome space.

We would definitely recommend Michelle to anyone looking to lease their property or someone looking to lease space.

Thank you Michelle!"

"Many thanks for your efforts in finding me a tenant so soon and also finding me a possible tenant for the corner shop.

Over the years I have had virtually no success when listing my commercial properties for lease, so having an agent so proactive is a pleasant change."

- Cliff Andrews
