"We have to congratulate City Sales & you in particular for the truly professional manner in which you brought our apartment to a successful auction. The whole process was seamless, non-invasive & you have been a pleasure to deal with. You certainly know your trade!"

J.S. (Vendor)

I employed Scott and James to sell our amazing Mt Eden apartment. They recommended to me that we should take this property to auction. Having a great three week marketing campaign really pulled the buyers in and with City Sales having such a strong auction room, we easily achieved an incredible result having many bidders in the room and on the phone. Scott and James were easy to work with, also very responsive when it came to emails, texts and phone calls. Above all else, they knew what they were talking about and were very in tune with the marketplace which helped achieve the sale.


"Scott was our agent and worked very hard for us and ended up selling our apartment for a record price. In circumstances that involved Sky City fires to having to travel half way to Hamilton to get a signature. He also helped in the purchase of our new apartment  All too easy."

M.J. (Vendor and Purchaser)

"Scott was our agent for the sale of our apartment, on his recommendation we listed our property just a few weeks before Christmas. With busy schedules we thought this could be a challenge, especially while living overseas, but Scott managed the whole process taking the stress of selling off us. Scott was ready to use communication apps and our google drive, he kept us up-to-date with weekly marketing and buyer feedback reports and we completed weekly video conferences for updates. Scott went the extra mile to ensure our property was beautifully presented and his marketing of our property was broad reaching bringing in buyers on auction day. The best agent we’ve ever worked with."

A.S. (Vendor)

"Another successful purchase negotiated through Scott Dunn. Scott has been excellent to work with in all aspects of our recent purchase of two city apartments . He was proactive in finding us exactly what we were looking for, and straightforward and honest in providing us with all information required in a timely fashion. I have no hesitation in recommending Scott's services as a real estate agent."

S.B. (Purchaser)

"I engaged Scott to facilitate the sale of my apartment at auction. From our  first meeting  his empathy immediately inspired confidence. His research and marketing presentation pertaining to my property confirmed first impressions.  His ability to communicate at all levels in what was quite a complex process, due to my particular circumstances,led to a most successful outcome. His punctuality and faultless integrity, together with his polite and affable personality,would most definitely lead me to recommend him to any prospective client wanting the very best of professional assistance in handling their real estate needs."

J.H. (Vendor)

"Thank you for your kind manner and understanding during a process which was worrying me. I am most grateful."

Y.W. (Tenant)

"We recently listed our apartment with Auckland, City of Sales agent, Scott Dunn. Scott sold our property at auction, within four weeks for a record price for this type of apartment in this complex.  Scott provided a highly professional and effective service, his energy and passion for apartment living helped garner a large number of bidders who ultimately helped us achieve the record price. Scotts communication skills and quick response to queries was exceptional and I would not hesitate to recommend him to any prospective seller."

R.M. (Vendor)

"In my experience of Real Estate Agents - you are by FAR the most responsive, thank you Scott"

K.W. (Purchaser)

"When the time came to sell our investment property we looked at a number of different agents. We decided to ask Scott to help us with the sale because of his friendly business-like manner and proposed marketing plan. Scott kept us fully informed of all open home visits and buyer inquiries. He worked very well with the tenant and made sure that open homes and other viewings were at times that suited the tenant. The property did not sell at auction, however Scott reassured us that although this was disappointing, he would still be able to sell the property for us. There were some worrying moments when two other apartments in the same building sold for amounts that in our view were too low. Scott assured us that these were aberrations and he would make sure our apartment would not sell below market value. His advice throughout the final negotiations always left us feeling in control. At no time did Scott try to push us in a direction just to get the sale completed. Instead it was clear that he was looking after our best interests and we ended up with a sale price we are very happy with. If we ever have another property to sell in Auckland we will definitely ask Scott to be our agent."

G.S. (Vendor)

"Coming from a sales background, I thought Scott rather commendable as a lot of sales people sit and wait for enquiry rather than being proactive. We found him energetic, professional and confident that he could get us a result. During the open home process he kept us well informed as to enquiry and feedback. The auction process can be very stressful but he and his colleagues kept it simple and painless. We would recommend him to any prospective seller or buyer and would have no hesitation in him using this testimonial should we need to be contacted personally."

G.S. (Vendor)

"If you are looking for a real estate agent who is professional, market savvy, realistic, thorough and hard working then I have no hesitation in recommending Scott Dunn to you. Scott carried through on all he promised, kept me updated at all times and demonstrated integrity and transparency. Thanks Scott for making it so easy to sell our property and for putting in so much effort to make it happen!"

M.P. (Vendor)

"Scott from City Sales has been a pleasure to work with. He has been kind and informative and sold my apartment within two weeks of listing for a reasonable price. Before working with Scott I decided to sell my property with a company specialised in city apartments but had not received any offer over 2 months. Overall I am very pleased with Scott's work."

C.B. (Vendor)

"Scott Dunn was very helpfully selling a property recently, supplied excellent service and got the property sold within 3 months at a realistic price. Thank you Scott"

M.C. (Vendor)

"We found Scott and Ryan great to deal with when selling our city apartment. They did all the basics well – auction, marketing and a great price! But they were really exceptional in handling all the other things that would be a hassle otherwise for us – arranging repairs, arranging moving of bigger furniture, helping with cleaning and setup – this level of service got them the job. Well done, guys."

G.P. (Vendor)

"Scott, you have been exceptional in your service, we extend our gratitude."

H.A. (Purchaser)

“The process of selling an apartment with Scott went very smoothly. Scott was responsive, prompt and efficient. Re the price. I had long-term knowledge of the building and prices, knew a fair value, and made it clear that we didn’t want to muck around with silly or counter offers. The process could not have been smoother in an uncertain market. Thanks to Scott.”  

E.L. (Vendor)

"Scott we wanted to pass on our gratitude for the professionalism and service you have afforded us. We haven't come across a sales agent before who has shown such proactivity and genuine willingness to find the best solution for us."

D.G. (Purchaser)

"Thank you Scott from the bottom of my heart for your caring, loyalty, great integrity and compassion for people like me"

S.J. (Vendor)

"It would be remiss of me not to comment upon the interactions I had with two of your salespersons: Scott and Ryan. Both connected with me in tandem. When one or the other was busy one always made themselves available. Both were very accomodating with their time, were personable and were very knowledgeable about the apartment they were representing. In hindsight I was rather demanding about access and information about the Silo complex and 8a in particular. At no time was either agent disgruntled at this imposition on their time and their cheerful demeanour throughout belied their intimate knowledge of what they were marketing."

T.P. (Purchaser)

"I must have contacted over 20 real estate agents in the last few months, you are the only one who showed a pro active interest in helping us far beyond just answering the usual questions. You're now the only real estate agent we'll work with, thank you Scott."

L.C. (Purchaser)

“We found Scott to be very professional to work with.  We especially appreciated his flexibility and arranging with the vendors for a private viewing as we were not able to make the open home times.  Scott was also very proactive at following us up and ensuring we could bid by phone for the auction.”

R & S.F. (Purchasers)

"Scott was great to work with. Always very helpful, honest and quick to reply to any questions. I would highly recommend him to others"

T.B. (Purchaser)

"I must say, I have made inquiries to other agents about properties, and I can safely say you are by far the most helpful person I've contacted. Cheers!"
