‘… We have really enjoyed working with PJ.  His professionalism, pro-activity and open communication have helped to make the process smooth and relatively hassle free.  Even within the constraints of a COVID lockdown, PJ ensured that we were not inconvenienced in the process.  I would say though that what has always impressed us about PJ is his depth of local knowledge about the area.  I would be surprised if there were many homes in the greater Bayview area that PJ has no knowledge about, and this experience and knowledge is invaluable if you are buying or selling in Bayview. …” – Phil – 100 Spinella Dr., Bayview 

“…He was very professional, informative and had a sense of humour. Because of his negotiating skills he was able to secure a sale price we were happy with, especially in the market climate of the day. His knowledge of the sales processes enabled him to clearly answer any questions we raised.

With his intimate knowledge of the area, he was able to provide to interested parties’ information of the local schools and amenities in the Bayview/Glenfield area…”— Kevin and Ann – 13 Glendawn Place, Bayview

“…This was my first experience of listing a property for sale. Through this experience I found PJ to be very professional, honest and someone I could trust through the process. For processes I needed more guidance on or times of uncertainty on next step, PJ always made the time to explain through and provide confidence on the sale. …. PJ always kept in constant contact to touch base on updates, whether it be Open Home progress, issues been resolved, marketing campaign set up; he is always on top of things with speed and great with communication…”- Zenia – 1/10 Halder Place, Torbay 


“… Our journey with you started 30 years ago not long after I had purchased Lyttelton Ave.  You were unobtrusive in your approach with regular contact a couple of times a year, sometimes via telephone, other times via fliers or calendars in the letterbox.   It was your consistent persistence that paid off and I was under no doubt who I wanted you to represent us on the real estate market when it became time to sell Lyttelton Ave. …PJ, you went above and beyond in easing what can only be described as a most stressful process exacerbated by us not being able to enter Auckland to complete the pre-sale work on the property…You kept us updated as each step of the way, helped us locate suitable contractors to spruce up the property, maintained your patience as we navigated the process with you and ensured the legalities were all covered off in a timely and efficient manner….  ” – Robert & Robyn – 1/24 Lyttelton Ave., Forrest Hill

‘…They did a wonderful job selling properties through their hard work &  passion, advised us about repainting the house interiors, staging and gardening – which helped us so much. After all the hard jobs of contacting potential buyers, we were really surprised by the auction result, it was beyond our expectations…” – Paul & Grace 1/11 Tristram Ave., Forrest Hill

“… PJ sold my parents home of close on 50yrs and also sold me a house some 5yrs ago…PJ gave me a very frank and honest assessment of both the market and my situation with selling a property that was slightly out of the ordinary…Straight from the outset, PJ was upbeat looking at the positives, but at the same time explaining the potential stumbling blocks… He is a very driven, passionate and sincere real estate agent who delivers results.” – Graeme Kelner – 27 Lavery Place, Sunnynook 

“PJ made the process of selling our home less stressful with regular updates and his friendliness. Excellent service throughout the sale of our home”

 4 – Leigh Terrace, Bayview

“I know we could not have got through it all without you…You were always there on the end of a phone if we needed you. And even a few visits to my care home to see me because I couldn’t come to you wasn’t too much for you… thank you PJ for your kindness,  patience,  experience,  guidance and that lovely smile. ” Gloria Dam – 66 Chartwell Ave., Glenfield

“…PJ recommended we go to Auction ….  Once the property was on the market PJ informed us every step of the way with regular updates. The result we got at Auction was beyond our expectations… PJ, we only wish you were down the Lower North Island to help us find our new home.” Lynne and Tony Collings- 55a Bayview Road, Bayview

“…When going to market we were a little apprehensive of the uncertain Covid times … With us being in the South Island, PJ provided us with a fair appraisal and also a marketing/management plan and suggestions of what improvements to make. PJ went above and beyond in bringing in different trades to get the house market ready. .. …We were very happy with the outcome of our four week campaign, a good price and a tidy settlement…” Scott & Amber Healey – 17 Houston Place, Bayview

‘… He is very well known and active in the community and has a strong reputation as ‘the’ local agent with the most experience in the area….His knowledge of the area and the housing market in general is impressive. …All this made our decision so easy to entrust him with the sale of our house… ’ – Robert Foitzik & Hikma Siraj

‘…For us to ask PJ from Harcourts to sell our rental property in Spinella Drive Bayview was not a hard decision!…PJ is backed up by an excellent team, auctioneer Sam’s skills are amazing!!! We would definitely employ PJ again!!’ – Janice Arnold

“A good post-auction result. A testimony to my ‘life after Auction’ beliefs!”

11a Morriggia Place, Bayview

“… Matt Lysaght and I can’t thank PJ enough for the work he did for us to sell our Hale Crescent property in only 14 days. He was so professional but also easy to deal with and good to have a great laugh with. Make PJ your first point of call if you are ever thinking about selling. And don’t forget he is a great embassador for Bayview Community and Bayview School…” Mathew & Fiona – 41 Hale Crescent, Bayview

“PJ handled the sale of our house swiftly and professionally. We found him to be friendly, personable and prompt at dealing with any queries throughout the process.” 

K.Lang and D.Wilkin – 42 Houston Place, Bayview  

“……PJ did such a great job when selling us our house 4 years ago, that, when we decided to sell, we knew we wanted him for the job. PJ was patient, diplomatic and always professional when discussing the sale of our house. In the end, our house sold successfully at auction and the whole process went very smoothly.”- Don & Mary

“… From the outset, we felt confident in PJ’s thorough approach to marketing the house, he presented the information clearly and talked about what lay ahead for us, planning a calendar in the early stages to keep us all on track! Thanks to PJ’s advice we were able to present the home and garden in the best possible light and he and his team did an amazing job with the photos, video and advertising… The house sold at auction three weeks after the first open home. A true gentleman and a thoroughly nice chap as well :-)” Lynn & Steve Dewar – 120 Spinella Drive, Bayview

“…I am grateful that throughout the process you never pressured me….
From being a hard job it became almost a fun experience …
So thank you very much for your gentleness and kindness to me… ” Susan Baker – 67 Bayview Road, Bayview

“An excellent called-forward auction. Up from $821,000 to $860,000!”

‘… After attempts to sell the house with various agents we had chosen PJ as our exclusive agent for the sale of our property. I must say that it has been a relatively long and unpredictable journey due to the global and local economic turmoil but PJ has led to us a successful sale at the end.…’

George & Natalia Janevski - 6 Baltimore Pl., Forrest Hill

‘… As we had been living in the property for many years, we had a lot to do before it was ready to put on the market. During this time PJ did not pressure us in any way, but gave us great advice as to how to proceed with this mammoth task!… When at last we were ready to put the house on the market a whole year later, PJ quickly and efficiently put into action a four week Auction campaign conducting the ‘Open Homes’ in a very enthusiastic and professional manner… ‘

Elaine & Tony Ferguson - 79 Kennedy Ave., Forrest Hill

‘…PJ, with his (almost Irish) sense of humour and keen intellect always managed to find common ground with everyone and gave the very best of service to myself and all prospective buyers.…’

Maria Eriksen-Sohos - 38 Inglis St, Birkenhead

… When a good offer came about, he suggested to pull the auction forward. I took his advice and my house sold in no time at all – at a price that I am very happy with… PJ certainly not only sells property, but he builds relationships, which is becoming quite rare in these fast paced times…

Gisela Thiele - 97 Lynn Rd., Bayview

… PJ ran a very efficient Auction campaign, keeping us informed at all times, and assisting us through the process. Although our property did not sell at Auction we were given a lot of confidence and reassurances by PJ, to persevere. This paid off because we got an excellent price for our property within 3 weeks after the Auction…

Yan Li & Wei Li - 309a East Coast Rd., Mairangi Bay

…Through the years you kept in constant contact with us. When you recommended the auction process, we were quite sceptical at first, but with your reassurances we decided to go ahead – and we were not disappointed!

Ron & Diane Vesly - 8 Lynn Rd., Bayview

…After unsuccessful attempts at selling our home through other agencies, we decided to use the services of PJ, who over the years we noted had many listings in and around our area… He was a good negotiator and acted with integrity through the process. We wholeheartedly recommend his services and will use them again without hesitation…

Erryl & Eleanor D’Sylva - 3/82 Manuka Rd., Bayview

… It was not an easy process for PJ as our tenants often made it difficult but PJ remained professional and continued to promote our property despite trying circumstances. I feel he definitely had our best interests at heart and proved this in the final negotiation period when encouraging a sale with another agents clients over his own because it was a better deal for us…

Paula & Darren Midgley - 86 Spinella Dr., Bayview

… It is with many years in Property Maintenance, including buying and selling houses and being a Landlord that I feel I have developed a good understanding of what makes a good, successful, and fair Real Estate Agent… I was fortunate to observe first hand your very professional, efficient and courteous approach to the sale of the house next door. It was from these observations of your all round performance that I decided to drop the Agent I had in mind and appoint you as my selling agent. Indeed it was the right decision for not only did you seal a sale on my son’s property within 3 weeks, you also obtained the selling price he wanted…

John Christianson - 134 Spinella Dr., Bayview

… In the end the decision to go with PJ was an easy one. He was the only agent who always answered his phone and rang us back when he said he would… trying to sell a house in the middle of winter with the economy coming out of a recession and the banks asking 20% deposit was certainly not the easiest task but PJ persevered. In the end we got exactly the price we wanted…

Emma Humphrey & John Head - 3/87 Manuka Rd., Bayview

… We didn’t know he was really that capable: he sold our house 5 days after the open home – through a short term notice auction! If you are looking for a good real estate agent, Pankaj is definitely the right choice…

Kane & Linda - 9 Classic Grove, Bayview

‘… For us it was a natural choice to approach PJ also for the sale of our house this year. He has been extremely knowledgeable of the market and the area, and advised us professionally on sales strategies and presentation of the property… In the end the auction was brought forward to only a few days after the first (and only) open home…’

Friederike, Guy & Stella Kloss - 2/20 Bayview Rd., Bayview

“……PJ worked tirelessly on my behalf…The whole process which could have been very stressful was not that at all and we had a good result in a fairly short time-frame. I would highly recommend his services!’

Emalyn - 2/23 Ludlow Terrace, Totara Vale

… One of the most difficult aspects of a property sale is the creation of sufficient interest in prospective buyers to attend an open home. I must congratulate PJ on the volume of prospective buyers that attended the open home every week for four consecutive weeks; in comparison to surrounding properties we had the most foot traffic…

Darryl Grauman - 172a Forrest Hill Rd., Forrest Hill

… We were a little apprehensive as we were selling from the other end of the country… His communication was excellent, we were well informed on the different methods to sell and we were kept up to date through the whole hassle free process. PJ was very thorough and got us what we were wanting via auction. We wouldn’t have been confident selling in our position with any other agent…

Nic & Kim Coll - 2/62 Glenvar Rd., Torbay

…PJ was able to appraise the house and give me some good recommendations on things that needed fixing to get the house up to a good standard. He then had tradesmen complete quotes and gave them access to the house once I had selected the tradesmen to complete the job…His knowledge and understanding of the Glenfield area is second to none…’

Andrea Steen - 2/20 Bayview Rd., Bayview

… I recently needed to sell my house urgently due to personal circumstances. I was aware this was going to be difficult due to two factors:
1. The market was at a low ebb, and
2. My house was a renovated ‘leaky building’.
The house had been completely repaired and had a Code of Compliance, but there was still an issue of prospective buyers being suspicious of any property which had the label of a leaky building… The house was sold successfully, and the outcome was great. A real WIN-WIN situation for both of us and the buyer…

Rhonda Jackson - 6 Exmouth Rd., Northcote

… But what surprised and impressed me most of all was how PJ went out of his way to assist with things that were well beyond his remit and beyond my expectations. For instance, PJ assisted in getting maintenance work done on the property before the open days – organised quotes, haggled about price on my behalf and made sure the work got done…

Diane Christensen - 128b Lynn Rd., Bayview

… We appreciated being able to ring him up on occasion to ask him about properties we were looking at and always found him to be very friendly and helpful… Before we purchased, PJ spent a lot of time with us giving us a detailed appraisal of our house and recommendations of which improvements would get the maximum sale price… We don’t hesitate to recommend PJ as a thoroughly professional and very competent real estate agent…
