Vicki Tahau Paton Real Estate,


We loved using Vicki as she shared her knowledge whilst discussing our expectations and industry patterns at the current time. She followed through with our preferences and the only change she forced upon was to up the price above valuation (which we got) in a quiet market. All communication was transparent and consistent which made the open-home process less stressful. Vicki was very fast to act with all photography and marketing. She went out of her way to negotiate home staging costs when we were both busy in our jobs. We loved that she listened to our needs and made the process easy with minimal fuss. We would highly recommend using Vicki and will most definitely make contact on our next house sale and purchase.

I used Vicki’s real estate service as it isn’t a big company just after a sale, no matter what! Vicki genuinely wants you to get the best outcome for you. Another big selling point for me is trust, I know it would only be Vicki in my house on open days and only Vicki that was dealing with me, and potential byers, not another agent(s). Even though it is a smaller company. Vicki has been in the industry for many years so still has lots of contacts and media coverage. A great on-on one service, great communication every step of the way meaning less stress, for me. Vicki has patience and takes the time to explain everything, even more than once. Vicki is open, honest and straight up. She will give you pros and cons of every option but will take on any decision you decide on. Vicki is also sincere in her excitement or you and your future journey.

I very much appreciated Vicki for her valuable input and advice, always making our meetings on time. Where no one else could sell my property in very bad times both in the market and earthquake. Vicki Sold my property in her prescribed short space of time, well done Vicki, I’d recommend you to anyone I know wanting to sell.

Vicki is a very professional, friendly agent. We particularly liked her honesty about the property we were purchasing. Vicki’s availability to respond to questions in a timely manner was great. Vicki is an experienced professional agent. We trusted her with the details of the property deal. We would definitely recommend her real estate services.

To any future client

I have had dealings with many real estate agents over 35+ years now, yet not one of them worked with equal respect and genuine for both client and buyer (being myself in this instance) ...I truly respect Vicki's efforts to be fair.....working for the good of both parties with her genuine smiles and mannerisms which made it a joy to be around her...

Seeing the respect Vicki had for both of us showed a credible worthiness that I have not seen prior in other agents....
I thank you so very much Vix for showing worthiness in a profession that can often lack scruples in many areas...

I wouldn't get any other agent to sell my property now and Vicki Tahau Paton would be the first agent I would call to see whats on her listings if I were to purchase in the future....

I will definitely promote Vicki's ethical professionalism regarding any prospective buyers or sellers of real estate....

With much gratitude Vix...thank you!!

'I met Vicki on an open day at a property she was selling on behalf of her vendor. I decided I would purchase this home on my first viewing and VickI made arrangements with the vendor that my builder could have access to inspect the house two hours after the open home had finished. Consequently the builder gave this property a good recommendation and so Vicky came out to my home at 8.30 pm this same day and I signed a Sale and Purchase Agreement which was accepted by the vendor later that evening. I move fast when I see a property I like and Vicki kept pace with my requests to provide information or access for the necessary professionals to enable this purchase to complete. I recommend Vicki as the Real Estate Agent that goes more than the extra mile to help her clients be they buyer or seller. '

Vix was the agent on a property I purchased, I found her open and friendly, nothing was a problem and she made the whole purchasing process stress free and easy.

Vicki was extremely flexible and accommodating during the buying process, allowing us to have a private viewing and coming to our house in the evening to negotiate with the sellers. This suited us as we are both shift workers and it would have been extremely difficult to complete the process in office hours. The reason we chose to purchase our home was purely based on Vicki's help navigating and negotiating the covenants of our newly developed property. Unfortunately our pets are included in the "banned breeds" which almost crushed our dream however Vicki helped us contact the developers and plead our case allowing us written permission to have our fur babies come with us. This dedication was the ultimate deciding factor between our home and an identical property just streets away as the real estate agent for the other house a ) didn't know about the covenants and b ) didn't seem interested in helping us. Vicki also offered us free dog care for the move! Which shows she understood the things most important to us during this time. Vicki is approachable, understanding, thoughtful and efficient. We would highly++++ recommend Vicki as she is invested for both the seller and buyers best interests and makes the process so simple and stress free for all parties.

There was a friendliness and warmth to Vicki, she made us feel very relaxed and we felt she was trustworthy and informative. Vicki was happy to go out of her way for us, she didn’t make us feel pressured and she made the whole process stress free and easy. We would highly recommend Vicki Tahau Paton Real Estate for the above reasons and we would use her services in the future if need be.

Over a post-earthquake period, another agent could not move my property. Vicki had it sold within 3 months and was a pleasure to deal with.

Very friendly and very easy to understand, willing to go that one step further, go out of your way to help, supportive, not feeling pressured into making decisions. Great service would refer number 1.

After careful consideration we chose to use Vicki to sell our house recently which proved to be a great move. We had no prior knowledge of Vicki but after setting our expectations down to other agents Vicki was the only one who provided us with genuine confidence that she could achieve a result for us. She clearly outlined the status of the market and had recent sales experience with an adjacent property. She conducted herself with integrity throughout the process and delivered us a sale within 30 days of the listing at the figure we discussed. It is worth noting that she achieved this at a time when many market commentators were suggesting sales figures were slowing. We found her to be extremely positive and hardworking. Her commission figure was highly competitive and in general provided a far superior package than any previous agent we have used.

We first met Vicki by chance at a house she was selling across the road from us at Clarkville.
Her easy going manner impressed us and there was no hard sell, rather she let the property do the talking.
When our house was rebuilt on Mount Pleasant following the earthquake there was never any discussion about who was going to sell it, we were going to get Vicki.

She did a marvellous job marketing it and what with billboards, letter drops and ads in the Realtor she covered all the bases and we looked forward to a quick and mutually beneficial sale.
Alas that didn’t happen and we were devastated to find that we had two problems unknown to us until the house was finished.
We had the only rebuilt house in the area which made it stand out like a sore toe, and at that stage people by and large were not buying on the hills.
Vicki didn’t give up she just dug deeper and from somewhere unearthed a couple of people who were keen.

She finally produced a slightly better price than we had expected and needless to say we were very grateful and able to get on with our lives.

I’ve never met a real estate person so down to earth and who achieves so much without seeming to pressure anyone.
If we were selling again she would be first on our list to contact.

Vix was given a very tight deadline to list and sell my property and didn't hesitate to get the process started and rolling. She kept me well informed and made the whole experience stress free. Vix guided me through the process and made things very simple. The property sold due to her perseverance and hard work, and her honesty, which I valued the most. Thank you for getting the property sold in record time, I really appreciate it. Outstanding work to achieve magnificent results.

"After missing out on a few properties, Vicki made it her personal mission to find us a new home for our family. In a very short time she was victorious, using her extensive contacts and in-depth local knowledge. Thanks Vicki!"
