What our clients say...

One Tree Hill - 73 Mariri Rd - "Having successfully sold property with Sally and Chris previously, they were an automatic selection to market and sell our home in Mariri Rd, One Tree Hill. Prior to listing, they shared their thoughts and ideas and on the presentation of the property and recommended a marketing strategy and campaign. We appreciated their knowledgeable advice and tireless help. We were kept informed after each viewing or open home and received detailed written reports at weekly meetings. We enjoyed their pleasant, relaxed manner and their extensive local area knowledge, combined experience and proven selling success was invaluable. Thank you Sally and Chris for selling our home and achieving our target price."

Dell Ngakuru

One Tree Hill - 50A Tawhiri Rd - "I can wholeheartedly recommend Sally and Chris as real estate agents. They appreciated my situation perfectly - offering spot-on price advice and invaluable local knowledge. Sally and Chris brought me a buyer pre-auction listing that exceeded my price expectations and a hassle-free sale. They answered all my questions clearly and without any pressure."

Sarah Whitehead

One Tree Hill - 23 Amaru Road - "Since 1990 I have sold three properties in One Tree Hill using the services Sally Dawson and Chris Moreton. There is no one else in the area that I would trust with my property and investments. The most recent sale was another good experience, it started with a slick advertising campaign attracting 44 groups over two weekends and, excess of 5000 internet hits prior to auction day. Before the auction I received three detailed reports on interested parties and their feedback. Sally’s reporting was simple, honest and informative as were her regular phone calls relating to the sale. The auction was held at my home. A council contractor digging up the footpath right outside my property combined with a thunderstorm an hour before the auction may have rattled a less professional team. These challenges were met with a confident smile, ready to get the desired result. Watching both Sally and Chris engage and welcome bidders made me feel comfortable at what is quite a stressful time. My property sold at the desired value and I now have Sally and Chris looking for my next home. I would recommend this team to anyone who may be contemplating making a real estate decision, I look forward to the next one."

John Chapman

One Tree Hill - 11 Kowhatu Road - "It has been our pleasure to have Sally and Chris market and sell our house in One Tree Hill recently. The decision to engage Sally and Chris was very easy, as they have always been so pleasant, professional and easy to deal with. Their regular updates, expertise and knowledge within the local real estate market and advice is unmatched by any others. The sale process was incredibly quick, with an acceptable offer presented in under a week, the auction bought forward and a sale in less than two weeks. Our expectations were well exceeded in the sale price. We could not recommend Sally and Chris more highly if you are looking for extremely professional, friendly, honest and immensely knowledgeable agents. Our most appreciative thanks to you both."

Matt & Shireen Gould

One Tree Hill - 45 Namata Rd - "We choose Sally and Chris from Unlimited Potential (once again) as they stood head and shoulders above the rest. We received two real estate agents for the price of one and together they make a dynamic team, both extremely good at negotiation and they know the market very well. They kept in close contact with us during the sale process, providing updates after every viewing. They were both easily contactable by phone, which is also something we value. They work very hard with the vendor in mind and because of this a fantastic result was achieved at auction. Our previous home was sold by this dynamic team as well and again another stunning result. We would highly recommend both Chris and Sally to sell your home any day of the week."

Jason & Helen Plummer

Onehunga - 80 Selwyn St - "Sally, David, Chris and the team at UP exceeded our expectations in every way when they sold our rental property in Onehunga. They made the process so easy for us, coming alongside two lots of tenants, gaining their trust and cooperation through a month of marketing and open homes, all of which helped us achieve a fantastic sale price. We were impressed with their diligent follow up with buyers and regular feedback. They were always available on phone, email and met with us weekly, providing good advice and recommendations right through to auction day and consistently helpful through to settlement. We've never experienced service like this from a real estate agent and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and will definitely use them again."

Philippa & Stephen Wright

Greenlane - 261 Campbell Rd - "Chris and Sally have been our real estate agents for a number of years now. They really know their area, we feel it’s a real plus they live locally. They have sold two of our houses, helped us purchase a commercial building and sold two of our children's houses. We have always been impressed with their professionalism and their willingness to make the whole process as stress free as possible. They have excellent integrity, we trust their opinions and always seek their advice when making any real estate decisions. Sally has excellent people skills and ensures all parties are kept fully informed and feel comfortable with the process. Her weekly vendor reports are detailed and she regularly phones you to keep you fully informed. Chris is an excellent negotiator and has excellent property development skills and advice. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and most of our family and friends now buy and sell through Sally & Chris."

S & S Milliken

Onehunga - 19/218 Captain Springs Rd - "We have just sold our property using Sally and Chris from UP Real Estate. It was an extremely stressful and emotional time, especially as we have a young daughter. We felt very guided by Sally and Chris, I guess you could say we trusted their expertise. Through the viewing and open home process they were very communicative and honest regarding prospective purchasers opinions and happy to provide genuine feedback. We bombarded them with questions which they were only too happy to answer. On a whole the UP team represented us as vendors in a very professional manner and we were very grateful to achieve the best price for our property. Sally and Chris encouraged us to sell our property for its full value and not to underestimate the market and although the auction didn’t go as expected, we were excited to meet with them just a few days later where they presented us with offers, one of which was the buyer. Overall I can't fault Sally and Chris, or UP Realty and we would genuinely be happy to recommend them to anyone wanting to sell in the future. Best regards"

Jamie and Kirsty Mackintosh

Epsom - 2/14 Brightside Road - "Sally and Chris have sold two homes for me in the last two years. The first they took on after it was badly managed by another company, it was sold within 36 hours of their first visit for the price I had put on it. The other agents couldn't get within this price by tens of thousands of dollars. When it came time to sell my apartment I called them in. After 60 groups had been through over three weeks of marketing it came to auction day. The UP team moved in and ran it with humour and in a professional way, handling me, the owner, with care and consideration in a stressful time The result was well above their estimate and my reserve. Celebrated with champagne."

Penny Harwood

Greenlane - 49 Maungakiekie Avenue - "It was a major decision to sell our property that had been in the same family since it was built 90 years ago. It was an easy decision to consult with Barry Thom and Grant Lynch at UP Real Estate Limited. I had worked with them both before they set up this company 20 years ago, and admired their professionalism, ethics, and commitment to achieve the best results for their clients. I liked the fact that on Auction Day, it was your time and space and the only auction at that time. From the moment we were introduced to Sally and Ronald, at our property, we were impressed with their enthusiasm for their work and their ability to make us feel that they were there for us and would achieve an excellent result. Throughout the three week-end program, they kept in constant touch as to the activity on the property, the quality of the buyers,and the feed back on price. At no stage did they leave us wondering as to what was happening. We never had to call them! A relative went to one of the open homes to recall old time memories and phoned us back to say how impressed they were with the agents handling the sale. We had such fun with Sally and Ronald. They had the ability to make the process stress free and most enjoyable. I am now missing our regular phone calls and meetings but feel I have made two new friends. Sally and Ronald, thankyou for your hard work and for achieving an excellent result .. You are fantastic as is the Company you work for…Best wishes…"

Jill Chisholm

One Tree Hill - 151 Campbell Road - "We can only describe Sally and Chris’s dedication and professionalism as outstanding. They guided us through a stressful and emotional time in our lives with such care and patience that we are so very grateful for. They certainly know their business and demonstrated expertise around the Real Estate market providing us with the utmost confidence in their ability in bringing us the best outcome. We thoroughly recommend Sally and Chris to those wanting the best service, dedication, professionalism and results with either buying or selling their home!"

Mike and Ali Hayward

One Tree Hill - 5/7 Tawa Rd - "A massive round of applause for selling our unit so quickly. We set Sally a challenge- 2 weeks to sell our unit at a price we were happy with or we would re-tenant it. Not only did Sally readily accept the challenge, she managed to achieve the impossible. She had a conditional offer within hours and it was sold the following day. Sally we are still in awe at your ability to sell a unit unseen within 24 hours- Thank you! We will definitely come to you in future and have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone looking to sell."

Avril & Karl Hull

Greenlane - 42 Maungakiekie Ave - "A huge thanks for selling our house. It was not an easy marketing opportunity but you and Chris handled it with such professionalism and efficiency that we had great confidence in a success from the outset. As it turned out we were even more delighted that the house sold within 6 weeks. We appreciated how easy you made it for us through your constant updates and responses to queries – making the sale a seamless process. We would be very happy to recommend you to anyone we know who is looking to buy or to sell. I hope we can catch up again soon."

Ann Mellor & Paul Mabee

One Tree Hill - 14 Irirangi Road - "We cannot recommend Sally Dawson and Chris Moreton highly enough. We had a very short and stressful pre-Christmas window in which to sell our property. Sally and Chris calmly reassured us and with their knowledge of the area gained an exceptional result. In the competitive market of selling property their professionalism is to be recommended."

AJ Voykovich & Brigit Morrison

Onehunga - 36B Inkerman Street - "We did not need to think twice before engaging Sally & Chris in representing our interests in the sale of our house. We had used Sally on a previous two occasions to sell our homes and had enjoyed both experiences. Sally is an extremely approachable and friendly person who takes the time to discuss any concerns you may have and has a wealth of knowledge to tap into. This third sale has been very stress free with the usual positive outcome that we have come to expect from this formidable duo. If you are after an agent that is enthusiastic, reliable, trustworthy, energetic, positive and delivers then I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sally & Chris."

Sandra Katterns & Reg Cooper

Three Kings - 9 Princes Ave - "Having dealt with Chris and Sally at previous real estate agencies, we followed them to UP and once again they have exceeded our expectations in terms of service and, ultimately, the sale price. We have already recommended them to work colleagues and neighbours who all have had a similar experiences which is the truest test of satisfaction. Their market knowledge and mastery of the sales / marketing process is second to none. Having bought and sold 9 houses in both Australia and New Zealand, they still remain the most professional real estate agents we have come across."

Cindy & Darren O'brien

Onehunga - 26a Wallath Rd - "As a home owner I have used the expert skills of Sally's quite a few times over the last few years. Recently I found myself in a situation where I had to move very quickly recently to sell and purchase a new home and Sally (of course) facilitated the whole process with speed and efficiency. In three words I would recommend Sally for her 'Honesty, Efficiency and Desire - to meet her clients goals' in a kind and generous manner. Sally listens to and works with her clients to meet their needs. I Highly recommend Sally Dawson."

Anne Lechner

One Tree Hill - 1/42 Tawhiri Road - "Sally and Chris are a dynamic and energetic team. We felt incredibly well looked after as they took our first home to market and got us exactly the result we were after. They really went the extra mile finding us a new home too! We can highly recommend them both as experts in their field and trustworthy individuals. Sally has a bright and never ending energy for getting a result that works for everyone. We look forward to working with them again in the future!"

Zara and James Recordon

One Tree Hill - 1 Te Kawa Rd - "When you are parting with what is quite possibly your most valuable asset and emotional attachment your appetite for mediocrity is limited – and trust me there is a great deal of mediocrity out there. Far from mediocre Chris and Sally understand what their clients are going through. They make every effort to ensure the process as easy and relaxed as possible through keeping people informed, being realistic and honest and most of all just being there. We were very pleased with the way they approached the challenge that we put to them and they fulfilled every piece of it albeit unique. The fact that we asked them to commit to something that was outside of the normal and they accepted the challenge without a fuss speaks volumes of their professionalism and confidence to get the job done. With Chris and Sally your property truly has Unlimited Potential."

Karen & Mike Smith

One Tree Hill - 35a Mariri Rd - "In choosing agents to sell our two storey cottage on a large section in One Tree Hill the decision to ask Sally and Chris was an easy one. Having assessed our property some years ago Sally became enthusiastic about our house and Chris had the knowledge on the property development front. We knew that they had excellent local knowledge also. This was a perfect combination of skills for our unique property. Our dealings with Sally and Chris were extremely personable and questions and concerns were answered straight away to our satisfaction. We were comfortable with them and were kept informed every step of the way. A sale after a bit of negotiation after only four days of being on the internet was an outstanding result. If you are looking for agents that will listen, understand what you are going through and are up-to-date with market conditions, we recommend that you ask Sally and Chris to handle your property dealings. Thanks guys much appreciated."

Stephen & Carolyn Taylor

Greenlane - 4a Irirangi Road - "Our decision to entrust Sally and Chris with selling our property was an easy one. We had visited many open homes in our area to see how various agents dealt with potential buyers. Sally and Chris stood out as being not only warm and friendly, but they seemed privileged to represent their vendor. So onto our home, which had a style that would appeal to a smaller market share. Sally and Chris gave us total confidence that they believed in our property. We felt extremely comfortable through the entire process, from updates, open homes, feedback and the final auction. Sally and Chris are genuine, treat you with respect and build a trusting relationship with you. They work extremely well together and both bring different skills that complement each other, all the while, focusing on you The Vendor and getting the best outcome possible for you. We were thrilled with our sale – especially when our sale price was $200K above what another large, well known real estate firm had quoted us as our potential sale range. I recommend that you give Sally and Chris the responsibility to sell your home – they will take ownership of the process and you will feel like you are in extremely capable hands. These guys know their stuff!"

Tracey Diamond & Steve Gillingwater

Mt Eden - 60 Landscape Rd - "We picked Sally and Chris after observing several agents from other companies. At the initial consultation they were very prepared and offered good advice as to how to approach the marketing of our home. From how to fine tune for the final presentation, to a cost effective marketing strategy that suited our budget and targeted the potential buyers. The response from our first open home weekend was excellent, and follow up visits during the next week attracted early offers that brought the auction forward. The result from the auction was outstanding and at the high end of our expectations. The whole process was smooth and as stress free as possible. We would have no hesitation in recommending Sally and Chris to anyone considering selling their property."

Karen & Alan Macy

Mt Wellington - 4/99 Panama Rd - "Many thanks to both of you for completing the sale of our home unit at 4/99 Panama Road Mt Wellington. We have been very impressed with the professional manner in which the complete transaction has been carried out.

We wish you all the very best for the future."

May & Reg Hodgson

One Tree Hill - 9 Te Kawa Rd - "Sally & Chris have without a doubt provided Diane and I with realty experience second to none.

Highly recommended."

Kevin & Lisa Scarlett

Epsom - 18 Fairholme Ave - "Thank you for helping us to buy another house and for completing the sale of our home recently. When buying our new home you were very helpful in ensuring queries we had were answered and arranging with the vendor for access we needed to complete due diligence. We very much appreciated the advice you gave us before we went to market and the help that you extended in giving us names of trades men etc.. Lending us some of your own personal floor coverings just helped to add warmth to our lovely polished floors. Thanks for your plan that ensured our house was marketed widely. Thanks especially for the extra free advertisements you placed and also for the amazing opportunity to have the large house photo on display in your office window in Mt Eden. We are grateful that although the house did not sell at auction you continued to market it, all the while continuing to facilitate negotiations with the prospective buyer."

Gordon & Michelle Paddison

Onehunga - 2 Jackson St - "It was our pleasure to have Sally Dawson and Chris Moreton from Unlimited Potential Real Estate, Mt Eden, act as our agents in the recent sale of our Onehunga property. From the beginning we were impressed by their ability to listen to our desires, and to fit in with our schedules. They guided us with their expertise and experience in a warm, friendly yet professional manner. Their wonderful sense of humour and understanding approach made what could have been an emotionally painful experience extremely pleasant. Sally and Chris are hard-working, trustworthy people who are focused on using effective means so that all parties gain successful results.

David & Margaret Alchin

Meadowbank - 12 Bonnie Brae Rd - "We have recently had a successful sale with Sally and Chris. We are so pleased with the result and believe due to their expertise and approach received a premium price. Sally and Chris have superb communication and kept us involved in the process at every step, as and when it happened. I especially like the rapport they built with both ourselves and the buyers, they really get to know people and understand what makes the property unique and how it suits the buyers needs. They are very genuine and it was about getting the best result for us, we never felt like just a number and they never took the easy road just to get a sale, they worked hard for us to get a great result in only a few weeks. The team of Sally and Chris is a powerful tool, with their two different personalities they appeal to a wide range of people allowing strong connections to be made. We can’t sing their praises enough, thanks Sally and Chris for a stressful free, fantastic house sale!"
