Celia's Testimonials

C & A – Epuni –

Celia was amazing right from the start. She guided us through the whole process from selling our property to purchasing a new home. She was personable and always answered our queries at any time of the day. The little touches like gift baskets, cards and door ribbon was over and above what we expected.

Allan and Lara – Woburn –

We had the pleasure of securing Celia for the sale of our home by Auction in Woburn. Celia was totally professional in all respects and her communication was exemplary. If ever we needed to speak with Celia, Celia answered the phone straight away and was extremely timely with any email communications. Celia was busy (over 120 groups through our home) and credit to her, each potential buyer was identified and followed up with to ensure they had everything possible in there power to bid at our Auction. Celia also presented two pre Auction offers. This is the second home we have sold with Celia and we would have no hesitation in recommending her to you should you be buying and selling knowing with confidence that you are working with a high performing and successful agent who has your best interests as her focus!

Betty Welch – Lower Hutt –

I was very pleased with my decision to ask Celia Barnao to market my house. I found her to be most pleasant, efficient and punctual. She welcomed any questions I asked about the process. She is obviously a skilled and experienced real estate agent and I could very happily recommend her to others.

C & H Warring –

Celia has been a delight to deal with. Her patience and low key approach throughout the process have been much appreciated. We never felt pressured. She answered all questions promptly and always followed through on her promises. We found her easy to trust and a pleasure to work with. We would not hesitate to use her again if the occasion arose and would be happy to recommend her to friends.

C Altinkaya – Maungaraki –

Celia is great to deal with – She works really hard and gets results. This was our third dealing with her.

C and C Peters – Alicetown –

Celia was fantastic. We were absentee sellers and her feedback was excellent – Open days, sales visits etc – plus doing or arranging things to be done because we were living in Ngatea. We can’t praise Celia enough or thank her enough for going several extra miles in looking after our interests.

C Pointon –

Celia was very attentive to securing the sale and was happy to incorporate my feedback into the marketing of the property. I found her very easy to work with and she made the stressful experience of selling a property much easier to deal with.

Chris and Cathy Peters –

Celia is a professional and we recommend her. After an initial contact Celia kept an eye on the market and when we decided to sell our Lower Hutt home, going exclusively with Celia was a no-brainer. We were up north caring for a family member so Celia managed the staging, arranged for the grounds to be tended, and did all those tasks we would normally do if we were at home. It was a case of total trust. Celia got good numbers through the open days, kept us in the loop, and guided the sales process through the auction. The best recommendation we can give for Celia is that we’d work with her again without hesitation.
