After our property had been on market for 3 years with another Agent and Trade Me with no success, we listed it with Catherine at Bayleys. Catherine through her energy and enthusiasm had more people look at farm in first 3 months than we had in the previous 3 years. Catherine made it easy and straight forward with no hassles, with multiple signings and success. Highly recommend.

It’s been a long emotional process selling our property to relocate to the Wairarapa but we couldn’t have crossed the line so successfully without Catherine. Guiding us, professionally and emotionally, Catherine has been there for us every step of the way. Nothing was ever a problem, Catherine tailored our marketing to suit our crazy lifestyle, making sound decisions to gain the desired result. Thank you Catherine. We will miss you a lot.
