“We secured Julie’s services to assist in selling our home in Birkenhead Point. The reason why we selected her as our agent is she brought extensive knowledge and a very successful track record of selling property in our area. She has a large high quality database of buyers gained over a long period of time, gained through her successful career which was very attractive to us.

Julie is a consummate professional, with a keen eye for detail. She brings an energy and determination that clearly shows she enjoys her work and her success is proof of this. We would highly recommend her to any vendor.”

Julie went the extra mile for us and the result speaks for itself.

Thank you Julie.”

“I selected Julie from a range of prospective agents and within 3 weeks my home was sold at a premium price. Julie made this process effortless. She dealt with all the things needed to get the home to market and provided regular (sometimes daily) updates on buyer interest.

There is a reason Julie is top of her game. This is because of her hard work, dedication to professionalism, and a real passion to do the best she can for her vendor.

I genuinely think you could do no better than to engage Julie to help you sell your home. The process will be effortless and you can be assured you will get top dollar.”

“I would like to thank Julie for being so professional and honest with her appraisal and advice on selling our home. Julie’s experience and knowledge of the market was instrumental. Advising on how to present the house, what was required and the people we could use, which achieved the top price result on the day.”

Rob Hanks

“Selling our house with Julie was a great experience. She worked hard to present the best possible face for our property, and through her efforts we managed to secure an excellent pre-auction offer.

It was a fantastic outcome and we really appreciated Julie’s experience and local knowledge in working to get us the best price. Thank you Julie!”

Juliette & Matt Moore

“We have engaged Julie Shand to sell two houses for us in the past couple of years – one in Birkenhead Point and more recently, our house in Northcote Point, Auckland. Both times we have been impressed by her professionalism and the experience and enthusiasm she brings to all aspects of her work.

Julie has been great to work with and both times has guided us well through all phases of the sales process. She is friendly, approachable, collaborative and honest, and has worked hard on our behalf to achieve the very best results possible.

The marketing campaigns Julie designed have been to a very high standard. The visuals looked great, and she knows how to engage and attract appropriate audiences through a range of channels.

Julie made the open home process efficient and manageable, providing advice and updates throughout. She kept us very well-informed on progress, was thorough and efficient, and paid attention to detail.

We have sold houses both via auction, and again, Julie guided us skillfully thorough this part of the process.

We have felt very safe trusting Julie with our places, and have been really pleased with the results she has achieved for us.”

 “Julie was a pleasure to deal with throughout the purchase of our home. She is highly experienced, honest, knowledgeable of the area, she always made herself available and kept in close contact throughout the process. She has a direct but likable communication style. She is an incredibly safe pair of hands and we would work with her again without hesitation. I’d highly recommend her if you’re looking for an experienced agent who will secure the best possible outcome for your property.”

Jamie Graham

“Julie recently sold our family home in Birkenhead and was excellent to work with.

We first met Julie at another open home and were immediately impressed with her friendly, confident and intelligent personality. She brought all of this to the table in selling our home, as well as a strong work ethic and user friendly communication style. Julie has high standards and this really helped us throughout the sale process. She gave us smart strategic advice, navigating COVID level 2.5, over 100 groups through the house, pre auction offers and a large number of registered bidders. The auction itself was amazing and Julie achieved a fantastic result for us.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Julie to any friends and family selling in the area, and have already started doing so!”

Kathy & Leon

“We recently sold our property in Northcote Point with Julie Shand from Harcourts Birkenhead. From the initial phone call right through to an unconditional sale Julie showed professionalism, motivation and hard work. Julie’s communication skills to both us as vendors and potential purchasers was second to none and was evident by the number of active bidders on auction day in a challenging market. She delivered a great result.

It is difficult to find an agent with as much experience, drive and local knowledge as Julie and we would highly recommend her as your next agent should you be considering selling your home.

Thanks again Julie for a seamless experience.”

G Donoghue

“Julie Shand is an extremely professional, hard working and diligent real estate agent. We entrusted her with selling a property that we knew would set a new bench-mark for Beach Haven and Julie came through with good results.  Julie has experience, expertise, a kind manner and humour all of which we found reassuring and helpful.”

 Diana Goulding & Brian Wilson

“Julie has a strong understanding of the market and buyers.  This helped us in making key decisions regards the timing of our sale and her marketing was spot on.  Furthermore, her recommendations on how to present the house allowed us to maximise our price.  All of this helped us sell our house in a little over 2 weeks, for a price we were very happy with.

Julie has fantastic attention to detail and ensures everyone is communicated with in an open and honest manner. This gave us confidence that we were dealing with a true professional. That certainly reduced the stress of selling our biggest asset.  We can see why Julie is constantly rated as a top agent on the North Shore.”

Catherine & Allan

“Julie clearly stood out from the rest. We appreciated her wealth of knowledge and general tenacity in getting people through for viewings, including a champagne evening to kick it off! We had a very successful campaign, were well informed and guided for the duration of the marketing and selling process and are extremely happy with the end result.”

Leon Smith & Katherine Nicholson

Towards the end of 2019 and early 2020, we contracted Julie Shand to guide us through the sale of our property in Northcote.  Our property was unusual  in its design and construction thereby limiting its appeal to a wider purchasing audience.  Julie guided us through the marketing, staging and the auction process with patience and wisdom. 

We both found Julie lived up to her reputation as a top NZ sales agent by constantly communicating with us and including us in decisions all the way through the process.  Julie worked hard to reach a settlement that met our expectation. 

Julie’s strong points are her communication skills, her hard graft in leaving no ‘stone unturned’ to present the property in the best possible light and her tenacity throughout the process.  We never doubted that she was doing her best for us.”

As the sale concludes we both feel that Julie was more than an agent and consider that she is now a friend. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Julie to manage the sale of your property.”

Denis & Cath

“We recently bought and sold our houses through Julie Shand.  We found her to be professional, extremely knowledgeable of the housing market, very responsive and supportive throughout the entire process of buying and selling a house.

She’s an extremely good negotiator, combined with her exceptional communication skills means that you feel like you’re kept abreast of things.

Her approach is very thorough from the marketing campaign planning, her regular updates and professional vendor reports right through to her finding the right auctioneer for you. 

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Julie to sell your home.”

 C and L Hyde

“Julie truly understands how to successfully market and more importantly sell a house. We were able to trust in her professionalism and market knowledge and she was always available when we needed to ask questions. 

Her commitment to us as her clients was outstanding and she truly delivered on her promise to achieve the best price for us. We would certainly recommend her as someone who will successfully guide you through the selling and buying process.”

C Atford and B McKinney

“We chose Julie Shand to market and sell our property in July and have been very impressed with her ability and attention to detail. With Julie you will receive second to none service and with her legal background no stone will be left unturned so there are no surprises close to auction date to lose those valuable bidders. 

 “Julie kept us informed throughout the process and worked very hard during the 3 week marketing campaign. We sold during an Auckland winter so there was alot of rain, Julie provided umbrellas to any interested people to view outside and had a little heater to ensure our home was inviting and warm. I have sold two other properties and this experience was surprisingly pleasant, I felt Julie has earnt every dollar of her commission. More than happy to recommend her to any other people looking to sell for top dollar in the Auckland (especially Birkenhead) market. We secured the highest price on our street to date!”

Lisa Bentley

“Julie exemplifies a communication style which allows you to invest all your trust in her. She steered us in the right direction to prepare our home for sale.

Julie promptly returned all calls and her advertising was of a high standard. Conscientiousness is illustrated in her tenacity. She has a great understanding of: contract details, negotiation etiquette and documentation. Julie was the outstanding professional we were seeking, which made a nerve-wracking time a wonderful success. Thank you Julie”
