"Just wanted to say thank you so much for all the hard work you have done for my brothers and I. We are truly grateful for everything."

J.S. (Vendor)

"We recently enlisted the help of Habeeb to sell our apartment on Nelson street. Prior to him we had a very poor experience with our last real estate agent so we were somewhat apprehensive of the promises made by Habeeb. However, he did everything he promised and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. He provided us with regular updates, and an offer was presented within a day or two of the listing. The whole process was completely hassle free and the offer went unconditional last week. We would recommend Habeeb to anyone and would absolutely use his services again should we choose to sell our house in the future. He is polite and very professional and we are very appreciative of his efforts."

D & Z.S. (Vendors)

"Hi Habeeb, I would like to thank you & City Sales team, for your approach, service and help in selling my apartment. You provided a seamless process to our sale. Once again, thank you for your help."

D.E. (Vendor)

"I am writing to tell you about the fantastic services had from [Habeeb Urrahman] with our sale of our Auckland apartment. We were very impressed with dedication and perseverance during this sale. He put himself out quite abit even coming to our home in West Auckland to pick up the keys etc. I would recommend this sales person without hesitation."

K.F. (Vendor)

"Thank you for employing Habeeb to sell my apartment! I want you to know that of all the agents I have dealt with I found Habeeb to be the best. He is an efficient and effective communicator, and overcomes objections easily. My apartment was difficult to sell due to objections such as "messy untidy tenants", "price", and "big pole in the middle of the living room" which other agents regarded as impossible to overcome."

V.M. (Vendor)

"We have recently settled the sale of an apartment in ‘The Aucklander’ Rutland St and it was only with Habeeb’s professional assistance that we have achieved the outcome we requested. Habeeb was honest in all his dealings with us, giving good advice and marketing the property well. We were impressed with his dedication to the task driving out to see us to get documents signed and completed, he made the process convenient for us. I am certain City Sales are all the better for having Habeeb on the team and I will recommend his services to our friends and colleagues who like us are investors in the Auckland Apartment market."

K.P. (Vendor)

"Quick note to let you know that Habeeb performed and delivered on the sale of our unit at 96 Symonds St beyond expectations. We were sceptical that a sale would be possible under current market conditions. He persevered and got the job done in a timely and professional manner. I am impressed."

R & K Du P. (Vendors)

"My husband and I recently had the pleasure of enlisting the help of one of your Sales Consultants - Habeeb Urrahman, to help us sell our city apartment. We were absolutely delighted with the service from Habeeb and I felt his outstanding manner and performance should not go unnoticed. Although it turned out to be the best option for us, I was a reluctant seller when Habeeb first approached us and was closed to the idea of selling. Habeeb was respectful of my position, was quietly encouraging (he knew it really was the right thing for us) and allowed me the space to consider all our options, before making any commitment. We accepted a very fair price on the day we committed to selling the apartment, and the whole process from there was incredibly easy. Habeeb proved to be totally trustworthy and nothing was too much trouble. I am normally a pedantic person who gets caught up in small details… but I found myself leaving all those little things to Habeeb. Habeeb has that wonderful skill of being both personable and professional, and he really seemed to ‘hear’ what we were saying, a must for his profession, I’m sure! Selling our apartment through your company was a thoroughly satisfying experience and we will have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone we know who is considering buying, selling or renting real estate. In Habeeb, you have a real asset."

G & C.F. (Vendors)

"Just wanted to send a quick note of thanks for your assistance in the sale of my apartment. The process was pretty stress free and I felt informed all the way so there were no surprises. Obviously confirming the sale is the main key outcome, but your service throughout was excellent. Thanks heaps and all the best for your future."

K.B. (Vendor)

"Habeeb was recently referred to me by a trusted friend of mine who operates in Auckland CBD managing a couple of apartment blocks. At first I was a little hesitant to take on an Agent unknown to me as I had been dealing and keeping in touch with the majority of Auckland "high flyer real estate sales people" over the last 6 years, one of whom was the top sales person in the CBD. Based on the trust I had in the referee I decided to give Habeeb a go and after meeting him in person quickly established he was sincere and a real ‘trier’!! Within a few days he had an offer on the table which was not acceptable to us and then another in approximately 60 days which as I write has now gone unconditional! Habeeb handled the entire process very smoothly despite all the late nights and hours he put in. Driving out to our homes to sign up the deal with multiple parties in peak hour traffic and sending abroad for further signatures without complaining and still with a smile on his face. Based on this I would have no hesitation in recommending a calm, hardworking, respectful and astute Agent should you be looking to Sell or Buy! Many thanks Habeeb & all the very best going forward in the very competitive inner city apartment market!"

A.R. (Vendor)

"Hey Habeeb, thanks for your excellent service during the deal. I am very impressed with your negotiation skills, work ethics, punctuality and positive attitude. Most importantly you knew my requirements and you helped me achieve it without wasting anytime at all. It will not be very long before I am back on the market, you will be my first point of contact. I wish you all the best."

F.Z. (Vendor)

"Habeeb, this is to say a big thank you. We greatly appreciate you for helping us in selling our apartment in Zest building. We felt very comfortable working with you. You provided us very professional service. You were very organised, professional, and helpful. We were very impressed with the honesty and patience throughout the transaction and your ability to negotiate the best price. We will definitely recommend your services to all our friends and family."

M.B. (Vendor)

"Habeeb, thank you so much for helping me to purchase my first apartment in Auckland. At the start it was a daunting task for me, as I knew nothing about the real estate in Auckland. However, you have made the process hassle-free so that I am not afraid to do it again. You were professional, responsible and reliable. You responded to my numerous emails and requests without delay. You treated me with due respect. You were willing to go the extra mile for me. I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who wants to buy or sell apartments."

P.L. (Purchaser)

"We said we wanted a sale before Christmas and you and your colleague Habeeb certainly delivered that!! So happy we chose to list with you at City Sales."

G & J (Vendors)

"Gracias Habeeb for your wonderful effort in facilitating the purchase of my apartment. Excellent communication skills, willing to go the extra-mile, pleasant to deal with, keeps his word, and keeps both ends of the fence happy. Though I have moved overseas, I’ve been recommending him to all my friends. All the best to you my friend! 5-star agent!"

H.W. (Purchaser)

"Habeeb, I would like to sincerely thank you for working with me through the purchase of both my investment properties. Your honest and direct relationship made me feel very comfortable and in the end make the best possible decision. It’s hard to find agents like yourselves these days, who have truly great service and keep the clients best interests as their number one priority, rather than the sale. I thank you again, and would strongly recommend you as an agent to any of my contacts. Good work and good luck for the future."

A.S. (Purchaser)

"I just wanted to say that Habeeb did an amazing job selling my apartment today. It was a culmination of many weeks of hard work and dedication and never taking his eye off the ball. He was tenacious, focused, persistent, positive and very professional. He is a top sales person and very instinctive in his work. He is in a class of his own. But most of all Habeeb's belief in my apartment and timing brought the sale home.  All credit to you Habeeb. What a tireless worker you are and a huge asset to the company you work for. Lucky them!"

F.M. (Vendor)

"Habeeb sold our apartment and we want you to know what a fantastic job he truly did. He held himself accountable, and was at all times professional, patient, hardworking, supportive and respectful. We wouldn’t hesitate for one moment in recommending him."

J & A.W. (Vendors)

"Your hard work has reaped big dividend when my apartment was sold with a record price.  You have turned a usually stressful process into a painless and joyful adventure for me.  I thank you sincerely and look forward to working with you again."

P.O. (Vendor)

"We just have to contact you to congratulate Habeeb and the team on a very successful sales process for our two apartments in Volt.

 For the first time ever when selling property we experienced an agent who actually was working for our benefit above all else. Key points of his performance were:

  1. Quality of advice
  2. Pragmatism
  3. Communications
  4. Negotiation skill
  5. Rapid response and turnaround
  6. Willingness to help
  7. Deal closure

Please make sure Habeeb is made aware of our pleasure with the way the whole exercise has been  handled."

J.C. (Purchaser)

Hi Habeeb, sorry this has taken so long. Life is never slow in Auckland and leisure time is hard to find any day, as I’m sure you know. This is all the more reason to support successful business relationships. Your work assisting us with the purchase of our apartment earlier this year was much valued and appreciated. Your friendly enthusiasm and genuine desire to help was refreshing and rewarding.

B.C. (Purchaser)

B.H. (Vendor)

"It is my pleasure to write a personal recommendation for Habeeb of City Sales whose dedication and professionalism is nothing short of excellent. Habeeb is ethical, professional, polite as well as knowledgeable on the current market trend. It took only one email enquiry and within a week the property is sold! Habeeb's regular communication via emails, SMS, phone calls really paid off. I was continually informed of developments as the sale proceeded and I was treated with respect and courtesy. Habeeb kept me informed at all times and I never once felt pressured. He is always there for advice when I needed it. He said he was going to do it and he did it. Thank you Habeeb for being a great agent with outstanding standards and attention to detail. I have no hesitation in recommending Habeeb to my friends and family."

L.S. (Vendor)

"I can say without hesitation that Habeeb is by far the best agent I have dealt with in Auckland. After more than 4 months of searching via many agencies and being frustrated at the slow, non-disclosing and unresponsive attitude to providing property information by 95% of the agents, we stumbled on a listing handled by Habeeb. We were very cautious first time apartment buyers, but Habeeb's professionalism, keenness to please and provide accurate information, and his broad knowledge of the Auckland market made finding the right apartment so much easier. We were kept continually informed by Habeeb through the entire purchase process. If we were to ever purchase again or if we knew of anyone looking for an apartment, your agency would be top of the list - and Habeeb is the man I would recommend to see."

D.E. (Purchaser)

"Just wanted to compliment you on an excellent job done, Habeeb, with regard to the sale of our apartment and car park in the Zest building. I appreciate your sense of ownership, you assumption of accountability for the task assigned to you and your professionalism in executing the sale in minimal time, with minimal disruption to my tenants and at a price acceptable to ourselves as vendors."

S.S. (Vendor)

"A big thank you to Habeeb Urrahman for a super quick sale of our apartment at Eden Crescent. We really appreciate your professionalism and painless execution of the sale, getting us the price we anticipated. IT WAS GREAT DOING BUSINESS WITH YOU and we do recommend your services to those thinking of selling."

H.S. (Vendor)

"Thank you Habeeb. I approached a number of sales agents with my ‘wish list’ … one got back to me but did not follow up further. You took the time to call me back, write me emails and meet with me. You showed me good options and found me an excellent apartment the fitted my requirements. Thank you so much for making my first apartment purchase easy and positive. I would not hesitate to recommend you to other buyers. I look forward to working with you again!"

A.B. (Purchaser)

"Habeeb, I would like to thank you for being so efficient and positive in selling my apartment at Eden Cres. You did not only get a good price for me but also made the process so easy while I was overseas."

M.F. (Vendor)

"From the moment we met Habeeb he went out of his way to understand our needs, organise additional viewings of apartments he knew about and generally inform us about the market. At that time we were incredibly impressed with his professionalism, knowledge and thoroughness. Over the course of the next few months I realised that no other agents I had ever come across had his level of dedication and commitment to us as clients so I made a decision to work exclusively through him for City Sales listings. We ended up purchasing our entire portfolio of 7 investment properties through him over the 8 month period. I have learned to trust his judgement and advice. We are thrilled to have had the experience of buying with him and hope that as we expand or change our portfolio that he will be the person we turn to again."

T.R. (Purchaser)

"Good Morning Habeeb, We would like to thank you for all your help on buying our property. You made it stress free and outshone all the other agents we had show us through different apartments. Your professionalism and your bubbly character will get you far. You would be an asset to any employer and you will be the person we use again for our next property. Once again thank you very much."

B.L. (Purchaser)

"I was impressed with Habeeb’s efforts to negotiate a deal where there was initially considerable difference between offer and expectation. Also Habeeb put real urgency on every matter and detail which kept the heat on the deal and so that it went through. Habeeb's advice and efforts were very valuable to me.  I have had dealings with other agents before from another agency but there is no comparison, I don't know the statistics of these agents but I would be very surprised if they were not amongst the best in the business. Making the sale was really about putting in the work and that is exactly what they did."

M.C. (Vendor)

"Habeeb has done a great job. I am pleased he came on board and will recommend him to any associates that require help in the real estate market in Auckland."
