New Zealand Sotheby's International Realty in Marlborough sets the benchmark for other estate agents. Tim and Michal are an effective team who understand the importance of communications. Their photographers produce exceptional and distinctive re...sults, and I was presented with multiple offers in a minimal amount of time. In hindsight, my only regret is that I didn't go to New Zealand Sotheby's International Realty first.

Michal & Tim, I really appreciate your help and efforts during this campaign. I have tried many other agents before and have tried selling property for a long time, this is the first offer I ever had in the last year or so. Your vendor report...s are very detailed and kept me updated all the way through the campaign.  I wouldn’t be able to get this sale across the line without your professionalism. Thank you!

Tim and Michal put a huge amount of effort in every step of the way, all hours of the day and we had full faith in them from the beginning. They recommended an auction and it produced a fantastic result with a sale price well above our expectatio...n. Throughout the campaign we were provided with regular marketing reports and kept well informed of feedback from all interested parties. They took a lot of care with presentation of the property and were a very calming influence during what could have been a very stressful time!

I couldn’t recommend Tim and Michal more highly. They were very considerate of the emotional aspects of selling our property which had been in the family for more than 180 years. They creatively matched buyers to various aspects of the prop...erty to achieve the best sale outcome. Extensive knowledge in a number of fields was required, from farming, home and gardens to viticulture, forestry and carbon credits. They worked well, communicating effectively with me and my trustees every step of the way and ultimately achieved a result everyone was happy with.

We wish to express our appreciation for the outstanding job done by Tim Crawford, whose integrity, patience and thorough professionalism gave us the confidence to purchase our vineyard property in Marlborough.
