“ Choosing Julie was one of the best decisions we made when selling our house. She is unfailingly professional, diligent and committed. I felt in completely safe hands throughout the entire process and supported at every step of the way. Our open homes were extremely well attended and we sold at auction in a “soft” market with 5 bidders and achieved a really good result. Even if we hadn’t sold on the day, I would have felt very comfortable that Julie had left no stone unturned.”
“Towards the end of 2019 and early 2020, we contracted Julie Shard 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.”

“Our recent experience with Julie as our agent was nothing short of quality professionalism. We found her work ethic to be excellent and proactive. She possesses a strong desire for high quality outcomes.
Thank you for bringing a touch of class and a consistent high standard to the campaign. We valued her conscientious and adaptable qualities that worked around our commitments. And not to mention, invested her time to consider the emotion involved with letting go of a place we called home with positivity and care. Her quality approach to the smaller details set the benchmark for us to give the property the best opportunity! It really was a pleasure to have her represent us throughout the campaign!”

Our house-selling experience was made a lot less stressful thanks to Julie Shand. She sold our property within 2 weeks!!! She helped us in making tough decisions and in setting the right price on the house. We’re delighted with the sale price, much more than we had expected. If you are contemplating selling your property and want someone who is hard working, reliable and committed, then we would highly recommend Julie as your real estate agent.

“Julie exemplifies a communication style which allows you to invest all your trust in her. Your house is your asset which Julie navigated us in a professional manner to sell. Julie scheduled all meetings and interactions at our convenience after work and weekends. She steered us in the right direction to prepare our home for sale. She promptly returned all calls and her advertising was of 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”

“Julie Shand sold our property within a 5 week window after it had been listed with another Real Estate agency for a period of 4-5 months where there was no offers at all. Margaret and I were at our wits end when we listed with Julie, she reinforced us with positive feed back through a very difficult period in the market. I found Julie to be very professional, hard working and communicated well through the whole process. A lot of hard negotiation got us over the line and now Margaret and I can now look forward to our new home in Orewa”.
Jim & Margaret Towler
“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 and Katherine
“Julie marketed and sold our home which was on the market for a considerable amount of time with another real estate agency. As it is a premium home it was only going to be of appeal to a particularly discerning purchaser. When we made the decision to allow Julie to market the property, she was relatively new to the real estate industry, but we were impressed by her professionalism and desire to transact our sale. Julie sold our home within a very short period at a time when the top end home market was in a downward trend price wise. The fact that she was able to not only facilitate a quick sale but also ensure we received our asking price was greatly appreciated and clearly illustrated her ability and attention to detail. After the experience we had with Julie, I would have no hesitation in recommending her to prospective clients.”
“My wife and I would like to thank Julie for doing a professional job while selling our house.
We first met with Julie when she sold the house two doors down from us for an excellent price and whilst we had spoken to other agents, Julie’s knowledge, approachability and professionalism were ultimately the deciding factors.
Julie went out of her way to fit around our schedule and gave expert advice in terms of home improvements with our limited budget prior to placing our home on the market.
Well in advance of our campaign starting, Julie went through with us room by room and advised how we should present them and during the auction campaign we got constant feedback so we were always sure how everything was going.
We knew a couple of families who went through our property on the open home days and they told us Julie had the perfect balance of allowing people to go through the home without being pressured, whilst being knowledgeable and informative when they had questions.
The auction day was seamless and Julie as well as Andrew North the auctioneer, took away any nerves by being relaxed and professional. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Julie to anyone considering selling their house”
Alex and Estella Waller
“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
“We phoned Julie after she was highly recommended to us by family. We were not disappointed! Julie is really approachable and walked us through the whole process. It was our first time selling but she helped us feel like experts! She made great suggestions of how to get our place ready to fetch the best price on auction day. We were really thankful we chose Julie and the Harcourts team!”
Alistair and Jess
“The amount of time, effort and professionalism Julie gave to the campaigning of our home was undoubtedly a key to her successfully selling the property. We were impressed with her strong marketing plan, attention to detail, commitment to finding the right buyer and the extra personal features of her marketing plan went beyond what we would have ever expected. A wonderful job and would recommend her without hesitation.”
Chris & Liz
“Julie successfully marketed and sold my family home in a very short period of time. Julie was very professional and supportive throughout the whole process. Her attention to detail was excellent, keeping me well advised and informed at all times. She is very aware that this can be a stressful time. Julie’s effective and efficient work practices minimized this for me and my family. She did a fantastic job and I have no hesitation in recommending her services.”
“Julie Shand recently sold my home for an excellent price. Over the four weeks of marketing she was helpful, professionally knowledgeable, and relentlessly hardworking. Her advice and commitment proved invaluable and I never doubted that the property, my most precious asset, was in the safest of hands. I wholeheartedly recommend her services to any prospective seller.”
