"On behalf of Carol and myself i would like to pay tribute to Joanne, who we not only consider being a valued and competent business acquaintance, but who is now a trusted friend of our family. She has from the start worked tirelessly and intelligently to obtain the right marketing and it is due to her efforts, foresight and knowledge of her calling that a speedy and satisfactory conclusion to the sale was achieved with humour and persistence."

"We engaged Joanne Buxton to market our house in Te Puna and found her friendly, easy to deal with and any requests that were asked of her were continually met promptly and efficiently. She completed the sale of our property with ease, due to her integrity and ethical hardworking nature. Thank you Joanne for your tenaciousness, securing a purchase who was just the perfect buyer for our home."

To whom it may concern, Joanne Buxton was appointed as Sales Consultant to market and sell the property at 210 Castlewold Drive, Bethlehem, Tauranga. Joanne was professional, efficient and above all, friendly throughout the whole sale process. Joanne communicated well between the buyers and the sellers and knew exactly what was going to happen and when. Documentation provided was clear and up front. A successful outcome for all parties thanks to Joanne's professional attitude. I would recommend Joanne to any future clients to market their property.

Dear Joanne, I wanted to acknowledge both out, Ian and my appreciation for the way in which you conducted the entire sales process of 11 Renner Place, Pyes Pa, Tauranga. Firstly, we appreciated the skilful and professional way you negotiated a satisfactory result for both we and the purchasers and the vendor. But it was the way you went well beyond, what I imagine, was the call of duty on settlement day, March 14, 2012, that we are so very grateful for. When our movers had the van almost full and our purchasers were waiting outside to get access to the property we were vacating, a problem arose; an anxious problem that our Solicitor was unable to find an immediate solution for. This was a problem that threatened to have us stranded and unable to take possession of Renner Place; one phone call to you and many you made on our behalf, turned the situation around, saving us a great deal of stress, frustration and cost. For you, the sale had been made, but you took time out of your day to help us and the satisfactory result that ensued at close of business that day, was in the greater part, due to you. If that wasn't enough, you helped again some days later with another issue that arose, one that had nothing to do with the actual sales process. So Joanne, a big thanks for everything you did that ultimately made the outcome on the 14th, not only more straight forward that it threatened to be, but a very pleasing real estate experience. Until our paths cross again, we wish you well. Kindest regards.
Carol & Ian Rickard
To Joanne, We are so grateful that God bought you across our path. We have found our relationship with you so easy, which has been a profound relief during a very busy season in our lives. Your amazing "can do" attitude has helped at every step of the process. Thanks for everything. You are so appreciated by us. Thanks for being SUCH A blessing.

We have just sold our house! Sadly we had engaged another real-estate firm to sell our house but due to them over pricing and having little interest it had not sold in 3 months. We were recommended by a friend to list with Joanne. What a difference! Joanne turned out to be both realistic with pricing advice, professional in the manner in which she did everything and the place is now sold! The thing that stood out most for me was that Joanne listened carefully to where we were at and what we wanted to achieve and was then honest with her advice and realistic with expectations. She then worked hard to achieve what she knew was possible and this ended with a satisfactory sale and satisfied purchaser’s. It’s been a pleasure to work with her and I would recommend her to anybody wanting a friendly professional approach for the sale of their house. We wish her all the best.
Cheers, Kevin and Cheryll
We cannot speak highly enough of the manner in which Joanne Buxton handled the sale of our property. The sensitivity she showed in many difficult circumstances during the process of marketing and selling our home will always be remembered by us with gratitude. Joanne, we would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone selling or purchasing in the future. Thank you for all your efforts.

Joanne has been an absolute delight to work with during the sale of my home, contributing key elements such as excellent communication, the ability to really listen, and the heart to go above and beyond in giving personal attention to detail. The knowledge that my home was in reliable hands resulted in a greater confidence for a positive outcome. I highly recommend Joanne as 'the consummate professional' for her ability to get the job done whilst tailoring current property services to the specific requirements of clients. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Joanne Buxton as their real-estate representative should they be considering the sale of their home. For me personally, Joanne inspected my home and expressed great confidence that she would be able to achieve a sale within 3 months. I was hesitant at first to commit to 3 months and provided her with a 'test' month only, to ensure I was happy with the sale process. Within a week, I could see she had put the 'hard-yards' in, and happily extended out to 3 months. A sale was duly achieved within that time frame, in a totally unstressed manner. Joanne succeeded where a previous 'high-profile' agency failed. I have learnt that achieving a sale is simply not giving your house to an agency that has the most signs, or highest profile. It is about putting your house in the hands of someone who is prepared to go the full distance to achieve a sale. Joanne definitely falls under this category, and I would use her services again without hesitation.

I found Joanne fully committed and full of enthusiasm, Joanne used her contacts and lists of buyer to show our home to as many potential buyers as possible. I have no hesitation in recommending Joanne to anyone wishing to list their property.

Joanne has been an excellent marketing agent, and as I have never before attended an auction – this was my very first – the auctioneer was particularly good at advising me and guiding me on the whole auction process. Joanne made this experience an excellent one and is to be recommended.

Joanne has to be the best real estate agent we have ever had and we have had a few… Not just because the house happened to pull the right buyer at the first viewing, but that she was a loyal and dedicated real estate agent continuing to promote our property and worked very hard behind the scenes to pursue other interested parties in order to create competition. A very highly motivated sales person and is a credit to her company.
Julie and Noel R
Thank you for your professional and caring attitude regarding the sale of our home. We really appreciated your constant updates, encouragement, enthusiasm and optimism. The stress levels were certainly “up there” at times for us but you mostly manages to reassure and placate.
Robyn and Pat A
Joanne, you were an unbelievable agent and worked your tail off for us. I thank you sincerely for your efforts and if you were in Perth, I’d take you out to lunch.
Alicia
Thanks again for the gorgeous flowers – they were amazing. In fact, you are amazing! I am so grateful that you were by my side this whole way through. Thanks for giving me tips, a building inspector, a lawyer, not to mention lots of cheek! I really needed someone I could trust and there you appeared!
