Lily came to me with a great attitude, was gracious about my situation, and brought the positivity I needed. Her extensive experience and knowledge of the market meant I felt I was in good and safe hands, and that I was optimising my chance of a good sale. Her communication was excellant. Thankyou so much Lily.

When we hit snags, Lily went over and beyond researching and helping us as we were selling while away from New Zealand. The sale went well with pricing that was acceptable to all parties and highly negotiated by Lily to ensure we got a fair price. Can highly recommend her professional courteous handling of the sale process and after service.

I have purchased a property from one of Lily's listings recently in the new year and have nothing but good feedback with the way she has presented herself throughout the auction process. She has been diligent and often worked beyond the normal hours to provide information in a timely manner which continued through to past settlement date. Would definitely use Lily should I wish to sell in the future. Wen

I met Lily when my property was on the market with another agent. Lily kept me informed with her listing and i was impressed with the sale price. In the mean time my property was still unsold and I asked her to sell my home after reading her many testimonials. I am very happy with Lily's service and instead of writing her another reference like everyone else I am happy for anyone to ring me directly.

Vaughan and Tracey Roberts

We have had the pleasure of Lily McDonald selling out property. Lily has a way with people. Her work ethic, gentleness and patience formed a huge crowd at our auction for which came a great price. We were so happy with the outcome we decided to contact her again to sell another property for us and we couldn't be happier with the result. We have no hesitation recommending her.

We are thrilled with the result of the sale of our home. We knew the market had cooled somewhat however you exceeded our expectations. You have been our agent now for 2 house purchases and 2 house sales and whilst we hope this will be our family home for a while, we will be recommending you to friends, family & colleagues.

Selling a house is a highly stressful undertaking. To do so with success we need a competent and experiences Agent. You worked exceedingly diligently with both the buyers and myself and you kept everything open, honest and transparent so neither parties had false expectations. You made the ad look so good i wanted to buy it myself! Thank you Lily, Well done.

Alan Reid

Thank you Lily for all your hard work. It was amazing seeing your work so hard. Sometimes it worried me. I see you love your job and are committed. I highly recommend the vendors use Lily as their real estate agent. I have noticed that Lily will go beyond expectations more than once. Lily has a good reassurance and makes me feel relaxed about the sale. Lily has the honesty that is hard to find these days.
