S.G. (Vendor)

"My partner and I got to know Gabrielle and Nicola in the open home. Their professional presentation of the property, the open and frank ways of communication, the attentiveness to our queries left us a deep impression. They have been able to facilitate us in getting ready for the auction and provide great support at the time of auction. They have also gone the extra mile to ensure a smooth and prompt settlement on the day as requested. We certainly recommend Gabrielle and Nicola."

“I engaged Gabrielle to sell my apartment in central Auckland. Being an overseas vendor provides a number of complications in selling your property. These complications were completely negated by Gabrielle, through thorough and timely communication, Gabrielle made the process smooth and easy. Gabrielle and her team provided excellent market advice and through hard work managed to achieve a record selling result for that building. I have no hesitation to recommend Gabrielle.”

H.D. (Vendor)

"Gabrielle Hoffman acted as our real estate agent for the sale of our Auckland rental property, an apartment located in Newton. Being involved in the real estate industry for over 10 years ourselves as agents it was refreshing to deal with someone as honest and professional as we strive to be. Gabrielle listed our property and promptly sold it unconditionally within days - a great result for us. We highly recommend Gabrielle to anyone looking for an Auckland real estate agent to provide them with excellent service and results. "

"Gabrielle, I've never had a Realtor who has done so much to find me exactly what I've been searching for, and words fail me at your dedication.  All I can do is tell you how much I appreciate what you have done.  Thank you.  If we are looking to upgrade in a few years' time, we will be looking only for you to buy and sell through.  We will also happily recommend you to everyone we know."

A & G.J. (Purchasers)

"Hi Gabrielle. Thank you very much for your email. I enquired about a few apartments for sale in this building and you are the only agent who mentioned the needed repairs. Much appreciated and great to know there are still honest people out there."

K.R. (Enquirer)

"Dear Gabrielle, thank you for the professional help once again. Having purchased 3 properties with your assistance I can honestly say how much I have appreciated your expertise and support. I am happy to be quoted as someone who is totally satisfied with your approach. This endorsement comes without any request from you and as such I am happy for it to be shared. With all good wishes."

T.S. (Purchaser)

"Gabrielle, thank you for facilitating a very smooth sale of the apartment in a very challenging climate at the present time. You were extremely professional and very approachable and transparent throughout the process. The fact that we lived out of Auckland was no deterrent whatsoever and this was most appreciated."

U.P. (Vendor)

"Gabrielle, you definitely deserve my deep appreciation for helping us to be relocated in a nice suburb (Grey Lynn) very close to the City Centre. In addition to letting us to view this apartment as soon as it came out on the market, I really appreciated for your expansive knowledge and insight into many Auckland City residential buildings and sharing it with me to decide the building that I want to be in. Without your diligent research on safety and security issue of each building that we have visited throughout my property search, I wouldn’t be so confident and assured when I put an offer. Moreover, your prompt feedback on my series of inquiries made my purchase experience so smooth and positive. I also deeply thank you for giving me an excellent guidance for the property purchase process and policy involved. Without your patient assistance, I wouldn't feel so happy and successful as a first home buyer."

S.H. (Purchaser)

"Much appreciated Gabrielle. I can’t believe it is only 3 weeks ago I gave you the key – so much has happened. I have been very happy with how you have worked with me (albeit a short relationship). We will be recommending you to others."

R.C. (Vendor)

"Thank you for your service to us upon the recent sale of our City Waterfront Apartment. It has been a pleasure dealing with you. Your quiet but focused and professional approach along with your positivity made the sale process as good as it gets for us. We would certainly take advantage of your services again if the occasion arose."

"My husband and I would like to commend you on being the most outstanding property broker we have ever met. Once we had conveyed to you the unique properties we were hoping to purchase you were able to locate them for us in record time. All communication was handled in the most gracious and professional way. Then recently when we decided to sell two properties, you further astounded us by finding buyers within two weeks, and at record prices. It's difficult to find words to fully express our gratitude and admiration for all you have done for us. One thing is for certain, you will always be our broker, and we will always be happy to recommend you."

A & G.J. (Vendors & Purchasers)

"Thanks so much Gabrielle for all you have done to sell one of my apartments.  Right from the start you made the process smooth and easy with your calm, professional manner, your friendly approach and honesty.  Even though I had auction jitters, I had utmost confidence that everything was in your very capable hands and that you had been working diligently on my behalf.  And what a successful outcome!  It has been a pleasure dealing with you Gabrielle and when I am ready to purchase again I will have no hesitation in coming straight to you and to City Sales."

N.D. (Vendor)

"Buying a property while in Australia is not without its problems, but Gabrielle made it easy for us. When the time came to sell, following a lifestyle change, we could sit back in Australia knowing that the property was in good hands and that Gabrielle would be working very hard to ensure that, come auction day, there would be potential buyers in the room to ensure a successful outcome. On auction day things could not have gone better, and Gabrielle was able to obtain a sale price and conditions that we were very happy with."

E.H. (Purchaser)

"Apologies for this belated reference, however we felt obliged to commend City Sales and in particular our agent, Gabrielle Hoffman, for the sterling effort made in selling our apartment. The sale was complicated due to the purchasers under an initial contract being unable to settle and the ongoing sale process was difficult as the apartment fell into a price range that put it in a ‘niche’ market. Gabrielle persevered through the original disappointment to achieve a sale of the property at a price that fell within the original price range quoted. She represented us in a professional, dignified and ladylike manner, which we greatly appreciated. We were also impressed with the professionalism of City Sales, particularly when we were confronted with two contracts on the property and the Marketing Director met with us to advise us of the correct process to follow in that situation. Having sold a number of properties over the years we can attest that our experience with City Sales and in particular Gabrielle was the best we have encountered."

P & L.M. (Vendors)

"Gabrielle, many thanks to you once again. Your continual commitment and credibility serve you well. It has and we hope will continue to be, a pleasure to do business with you."

P & S.G. (Vendors)

"Gabrielle, Tom and I really value the part that the City Sales team played in the sale of our apartment in George Courts. It was very reassuring to have your experience and support through the whole process right through to the successful outcome. We thought that the initial proposal you put forward showed professionalism and market knowledge that was clearly superior to the other prospective agents we interviewed. Your low key professional approach and attention to detail as you shepherded us through the presentation and marketing process gave us confidence that we were on the right track. You were accessible and responsive to our phone calls and emails and provided regular feedback and reminders along the way. The auction itself was an impressive experience and the fact that Tom was able to watch it live from New York was the icing on the cake! City Sales clearly has the ability to harness new technology to enable it to reach into the international market. Thanks again, Gabrielle, for making the whole thing easy for us!"

R.W. (Vendor)

"Gabrielle, we were very pleased with the sale outcome and would like to thank you."

F & L.H. (Vendor)

"We have just settled the sale of an apartment in Auckland, which Gabrielle Hoffman sold for us. We had viewed the market for some time and had tested the appetite of a number of potential buyers ourselves. Subsequently, we determined that it would be difficult to sell the property for an acceptable price in the current market conditions. We had decided to retain the property, however if the opportunity to sell arose we would only do so within a specific price range. Gabrielle was aware of our preference to sell but not at a sacrificial price, so she made contact with me to list the property and market it only to a select number of clients, ensuring that our tenant would not be disrupted too much. Although I have never actually met Gabrielle as I am resident overseas, she impressed me with her professionalism and determination and pro-active communication where I felt informed of progress throughout. It is fair to say that we are very happy with the outcome, and I would recommend Gabrielle to anyone who is looking for a quality agent to represent them."

S.S. (Vendor)

"Thank you for all your hard work on this transaction Gabrielle, it really has been appreciated and your disclosure, the way you have continuously streamed information to me and your general accessibility is better than any agent that I have dealt with. All going well we (or an acquaintance of mine) may be in touch to purchase another unit from you in the not too distant future so please do keep us abreast of what is on offer."

S.G. (Purchaser)

“A belated but sincere thank you Gabrielle, we really enjoyed working with you.  You were so obliging, super pleasant, accommodating and efficient, with all the travelling we both do, and trying to pin us down. We hope you have a bumper remainder of the year, which you deserve.”
