I met Jane Park when I came upon a property of interest in mid-2012, so she was the first person I turned to when I wanted to put my house on the market and look for something new. I especially liked Jane’s pragmatic but respectful approach. I quickly developed a rapport with Jane and found her honest and very trustworthy. She is not pushy or arrogant – attributes I have not appreciated with some agents I have come across.
Jane always requested an appointment to visit at least a day ahead. She always left her card after she had visited and often a little handwritten note as well. And, she always followed up on the visit with a text or phone call to give feedback on the viewer’s thoughts and opinion.
I value reliability, honesty and commitment and Jane consistently demonstrated those attributes. I trusted her advice and guidance and felt she was very good at reading situations and knowing how best to guide her client. I will certainly be referring Jane to friends and colleagues who may be entering the real estate market either as a buyer or a seller.
Selling the house which had been my home for more than twenty years could have been a really stressful experience but I was very lucky that the agent, Jane Park, from Harcourts Wellington did everything she could do make the sale go smoothly.
From the beginning, it was clear that Jane appreciated the particular character of the house and had a clear sense of the type of buyer who would also enjoy living here. The open homes were well advertised and well attended and Jane followed up on all indications of interest.
Jane nursed me through the auction process and we had a great outcome – happy buyers and a happy vendor.
We couldn’t have been happier with Jane Park at Harcourts who recently sold our home. We had trepidation about selling our house knowing how nervous buyers had become in a recessional market. Despite this, Jane led a brilliant campaign and come auction day we were thrilled to have not only sold within three weeks, but to also reach a great price. Jane and the team at Harcourts were easy to deal with and explained everything we needed to know in a precise and understandable manner, with no hidden agendas.
Jane was always happy to listen to our ideas and suggestions and happy to work with us as a team. We had regular discussion and follow ups as to how the market and sale was progressing, so were kept fully in the picture at all times.
The advertising campaign was well thought out and the photography was of a very high standard attracting a large number of viewers to the open home. But also, instead of just relying on the open homes to sell the property, Jane used social media and took several groups through the house during the campaign and kept us informed about each visit.
We would have no hesitations in recommending Jane as an agent to sell your home.

"Jane was the Harcourts agent responsible for negotiating the sale of our house as well as the purchase of our apartment. She applied herself diligently and professionally to both tasks. She was undeterred by setbacks, and extremely helpful with advice and with introductions to contacts able to assist with preparation of the house for sale. We found her always readily available to answer our questions or concerns. She remained cheerful throughout, helping to carry us through a stressful period, and from beginning to end was a pleasure to deal with. "
To whom it may concern,
Jane Park of Harcourts undertook the campaign to sell our family home in Central Tce, Kelburn, by auction in September 2011. She combined imagination and inventiveness with hard work and attention to detail, and mounted a most impressive marketing strategy. She used newspapers, the Internet, real estate magazines, direct marketing such as phone calls and targeted letter box drops, plus other agents and the company data base. Presentation and photographs were highly professional. She was thoughtful in other ways too, focused, and always ready to put in the extra effort that might make a difference. I found her professional, pleasant and friendly and trustworthy - attributes all the more important as I live overseas. I have no hesitation, on the basis of our experience, in recommending Jane with great enthusiasm.

To whom it may concern,
Our apartment sale was completed efficiently and much sooner than we had expected. We met with Jane initially and were politely and constructively advised of our options. Jane was clearly professional and her knowledge of the market situation reflected careful research appropriate to our intended sale. Her approach was to use the internet in the first instance and this,coupled with the excellent collaborative approach developed by Harcourts staff over the years, was ultimately successful in a difficult and challenging market. Our confidence in Jane's approach was enhanced by her personal attention and prompt response to our questions and she kept us informed of progress in a timely and thoughtful manner. We were impressed with the overall service provided and delighted with the outcome.

"We trusted Jane to sell our property and would recommend her services to anyone looking at buying or selling a house in Wellington.
Despite a tough market, Jane always showed enthusiasm and superior customer service, proved to be a good listener when discussing marketing options and offered us great advice resulting in the sale of our house in a relatively quick turn around. From happy customers Jules and Anton."
