"Sharene Temple of New Zealand Sotheby's International Realty acted on our behalf as sole agent for the sale of ten apartments that we owned in the Viaduct Harbour of Auckland City.

On Sharene's advice, we structured the marketing of ...those units over a 14 month period, which lead to the successful sale of all those apartments over that time. Her in depth knowledge of the property market proved invaluable, advice that I valued immensely and for which I am extremely grateful.

I would have no hesitation in referring Sharene to others and would describe her to them as being honest, reliable, easy to understand and someone that does not place undue pressure on you, she listens to what you have to say about your circumstances, analyses that, then provides advice and recommendations to suit.

We will continue to utilise Sharene's services when the need arises in the future."

"...sincerest thanks on behalf of Andrew and myself for all your wonderful and expert help and input into the successful sale and purchase process of the Princes Gate Hotel in Rotorua. As you know, we at Carnmore Holding Ltd, were charged with th...e responsibility of conducting the negotiations and the due diligence requirements for the purchase of the property on behalf of our client, and having your absolute commitment to assisting us in whatever matter arose or presented itself made all the difference in the world. I know it can be said that you were only doing your job but as far as we are concerned you went the extra mile all the way through and we are delighted to have met you and to have had the pleasure of conducting business with you. I have no doubts at all that we will work together with you again when we are ready to look for our next hotel property."

"I conducted a real estate purchase transaction where Sharene Temple from Sotheby's was the selling Realtor.

Sharene's response to my initial enquiry was prompt, courteous, and informative. She then followed up my initial enquiry after a... few days to see if I was interested in pursuing the purchase. After that, we had several exchanges involving questions about the property. For each of my questions, Sharene replied very quickly and completely, and was always professional and courteous. She also offered useful information that I had not thought to ask about.

When I decided to make an offer on the property, Sharene was very good in helping me understand the process required and facilitating that process. Although she was clearly representing the vendor well, at no time did I feel that she was trying to be "tricky" or overly "pushy", as many estate agents tend to be. As a buyer, this made me feel more disposed towards working with her to find a mutually agreeable price than I have felt with other agents.

Post sale, Sharene continued to help me to facilitate the process of renting the property. To me, this illustrates her understanding of good customer service, and the importance of connections and contacts.

To illustrate the difference, at the same time I was looking at a similar property through another agent. I had to resend my initial enquiry twice before getting a limited response. I then asked further questions and got only partially complete responses. After those exchanges I didn't look at that property further because it was too difficult, even though I would have happily purchased it. The property through Sharene came on the market about a month later. Most importantly, I was never contacted again by the other agent, and haven't been now, over three months later. That property has not sold yet. 

In my view, Sharene provided excellent communication and customer service to me as the buyer in our transaction. I believe that is critical to achieving an optimum sale result. Because of that I wouldn't hesitate to list a property to sell through her."

"To whom it may concern,

We recently appointed Sharene Temple from Sothebys for the sale of our boutique Hotel located in Rotorua.

Hotel sales by their very nature are complicated combining not only land and buildings, but an in...tricate business requiring specialised skills in this area. We chose Sharene as she has a solid background in hospitality and also is very much aware of the commercial nuances of maximising a sale of a successful Hotel Freehold Going Concern.

Throughout the sales process Sharene went to great lengths to keep us updated, and always looking to actively seek new potential buyers. She has integrity, but also the ability to make both ourselves as well as prospective purchasers feel very much at ease and in safe hands.

We are simply delighted to recommend Sharene Temple, so much so that not only is this our second transaction with Sharene, but we have already started to use her services to search for new real estate opportunities. The combination of the Sothebys brand and Sharene's background is an unbeatable combination!"

"We have dealt with Sharene in recent months as purchasers of two apartments in the Auckland Viaduct area. We started off looking at one apartment and ended up buying two! Throughout this time we have found Sharene to be an absolute delight to with both in a professional and a personal capacity. She understands the Auckland apartment market very well and was able to provide caring and helpful guidance. She has warmth and empathy and carefully listened to our needs. Sharene's service was well beyond our expectations and we totally recommend her to other purchasers or vendors."

"Whilst living abroad I enlisted the help of Sharene to sell an investment property. Although I initially thought being so far away would make this difficult and unpleasant, Sharene's dedication, professionalism and superb communication ensured t...he process was seamless and stress-free from day one.
I have never met Sharene but my impression is that she treats all parties with utmost respect, honesty and care. Moreover she knows her trade well and, at the end of the day, achieves fantastic results. The outcome of our auction was outstanding - and without doubt due to Sharene's handling of the twists and challenges that presented themselves throughout the campaign. I cannot recommend her highly enough!"

"I am living overseas and was looking for an investment property in Auckland. I came across Sharene Temple's credentials on a property listing via internet. I made a brief call to Sharene on my requirements and then travelled to Auckland to view ...suitable properties. My first impression of Sharene was her professionalism and her organization of our day viewing potential properties. A rare quality which I have not experienced with other agents was Sharene's ability to listen and understand the needs of her clients. After a successful weekend in Auckland I was able to identify a suitable property of which I am now a proud owner. Sharene's professionalism and knowledge of the NZ property market is highly commendable and I would strongly recommend Sharene Temple in helping you find your dream property."

Sharene was superior to the other agents I had experienced in so many ways. ...Thank you Sharene, for all your efforts and your honest and genuine approach. The whole process was made so much more enjoyable and stress free."
