Hey Team, thank you so much for your help in selling our house. Chris’ photos were outstanding and Jane Howard (HomeSell Pro salesperson) made the whole process very simple. A great result from one weekend of open homes.

Kind Regards, Steve - Papakura


'Good Morning Jane, I would like to acknowledge and thank you for the support that you offered me in marketing and sale of my property to achieve the best possible results during my absence of working and living away from my home. I especially valued the respect that was shown to me throughout the marketing and selling process as you were very considerate towards my thoughts and ideas relating to selling my property. I would have no hesitation in recommending your marketing and sales skills to family and friends that may be considering selling in the Mt Maunganui and Tauranga regions.'

'We decided to sell our property with the assistance of HomeSell, and we’re so pleased we did. Jane (our agent) guided us through the various marketing and sales management options very clearly and without pressure. The costs were stated up front which we liked, irrespective of the price achieved by the property which presented excellent value for money. The service we received was interactive, responsive and very professional. We achieved a fantastic sale price on our property after only 4 days on the market and just one open home. We highly recommend HomeSell based on our experience and the sale outcome.'

Clive P. - Tauranga


'Hi Jane & HomeSell Team. Thank you very much for the great job you did with assisting to market/advertise our home for us. We were very satisfied with your service from 'go to woe'...sold within two weeks for above asking price. A very special thankyou to Jane for your negotiation assistance, helping us to achieve a successful sale. It took the stress of selling privately, off us.'

Susan & David - Omokoroa


“Dear HomeSell, thanks for your help with everything. Totally impressed with everything you’ve done. Proved the naysayers wrong, even when we decided to sell during Covid. It sure is nice to not have to hand over that huge agents commission!"

Tracie - Auckland


"Many thanks for your services. I have recommended HomeSell to others as an excellent way to sell. We were thrilled with the price we got and the money we saved on commission"

Julie & Mark - Te Awamutu


"Your help and support was essential to the process and I particularly found the discussion about what price to sell our house at, and the approach to encouraging good offers, extremely valuable. You and the team were quick to prepare our marketing material and list it on websites. You gave us the confidence to sell our home ourselves and the people who came to our Open Homes were genuine buyers. The HomeSell process was very easy and straightforward. I would highly recommend HomeSell – a great experience and a great outcome!!"

Helen & Kevin - Pirongia


"We have just sold our house in Wellington through HomeSell in less than a fortnight. We are recommending the company and method of sale to everyone because;

a) You are in control much more than if it is on with an estate agent. We could select a time someone came to see the house if they couldn't come to the Open Home.

b) You get to meet the potential buyers at the Open Home. Everyone who came said it was great to meet the owners as they could ask questions like, "What are the neighbours like?" This was in direct contrast to comments that Estate Agents had made about potential buyers not liking to meet the owners.

c) The HomeSell team are fantastic; Chris explained the process clearly and succinctly. The marketing team was extremely efficient and did a brilliant job of creating a great online post and brochure. They let us have a lot of input into the text too. The photographer was local and took excellent photos. Andrea as our negotiator made the only part we were nervous about so very easy. She kept in touch when she needed to, explained the financial process and got feedback from everyone who came to the house. We cannot thank her enough.

d) We didn't have to go through the tender process. The prices of normal houses are often beyond the reach of normal families in Wellington now because buyers end up paying way beyond the RV. We didn't want to continue to fuel the over inflated cost of houses so went with "Buyer Enquiries Over" This meant potential buyers knew what we were expecting and there was no need to wait until the end of the Tender period. Everyone seems to win.

e) We also saved an absolute fortune in commission charges from Estate Agents that ranged from 17,500- 32 000 NZ $. We did our homework and found that HomeSells marketing packages were much more reasonable and you could choose the level of marketing you wanted. The extremely competitive fee for the Negotiation package was 6000NZ$. The only part we did that an Estate Agent would have done was the Open Homes which was much more pleasurable than we anticipated. Yes, the cleaning and tidying part was a pain but you would have to do that anyway even if it is on with an agent.

So, would we recommend HomeSell as a way of selling a house in Wellington? ABSOLUTELY. They have made it as stress free as possible, (apart from the cleaning/ tidying needed for Open Homes!) we have sold our house very quickly at a price we are delighted with and we know who is coming to live in our lovely home. We seem to have the best of all worlds and we can't thank Andrea, Chris and the rest of the team enough. Good luck with the selling of your home the HomeSell way."

Ruth & Ian - Wellington



I really appreciate the wonderful service and help received from the Homesell team and have already recommended Homesell to many.

Thanks again for being so supportive, kind and helpful in assisting me sell my house. From the taking of the magnificent photos, to the prompt delivery of the brochures, signboards, etc, I received nothing but wonderful service from the whole team. Thank you all.

Kind Regards,
Trish Baars - Te Puke


'Hi Jane, The house was listed on 2nd July, we went unconditional on 23rd July and settled on 12 August for the asking price. I didn’t even manage to unwrap the street sign! I was still receiving enquiries up until we settled. Many thanks HomeSell for everything.'

Rob, Taupo


This property was listed and sold within 3 weeks, achieving well above the asking price.... 'Hi Jane, we went unconditional today! We are now just arranging a settlement date. Thanks for the guidance on the price, it was a good strategy. Thank you for your help and service - made our job really easy and the great presentation (photos and signage) was all part of the experience we were able to deliver. Thanks again.'

Murray, Hamilton


'Good Morning, we are pleased to advise that the property has sold, with it subject to an unconditional sale agreement. Thank you HomeSell for your assistance. The process has been easy, and we got a great result.'



'We would like to thank the HomeSell team for the assistance and the hard work by our HomeSell Pro salesperson, in what was a challenging market at times. We have enjoyed the experience! Many thanks!'

Greg, Lisa & Family, Auckland


'Hi Jane & team, I’ve passed a Homesell recommendation to a few people, so hopefully you will get some calls in the future. Thanks so much for all your support.'

Kylie, Te Puke


"My wife and I have had a very easy and successful experience doing our first-ever private sale with HomeSell. Jane and her team have been enormously helpful. They have been available and alongside us with every step, helping us present our house to the market in the best possible way. The photography and marketing material were exceptional.

As a result, the house sold less in than a week, at a great price, and with less stress and hassle than we have previously had buying and selling a house though an agent. We chose the "Premium" marketing package, which we believe delivered far more marketing than the average estate agent provides and at a fraction of the price. We would absolutely use HomeSell again."

Bruce & Stacey - Ohauiti, Tauranga


'HomeSell was recommended to us by a friend who appreciated the service & had negotiated a successful sale. We were comfortable with the concept & the level of service that was offered & the different levels of marketing which are available. Jane Simmons is a bundle of enthusiasm, she has an in depth knowledge of the property market, & has the expertise to guide us in to making the right choices. Sarah, on the HomeSell support team is great value as well & attends to the administration & updates in a professional manner.

We were selling a Lifestyle Block & we found the HomeSell system to be an easy process with huge benefits particularly in having the opportunity to spend time with prospective buyers, ascertaining exactly what they were looking for, & then steering the conversation to cover their particular interests. We were able to give prospective buyers personal attention, highlight the attributes & the potential of the property, answer their questions, & on average we spent 1 hr + with each enquirer.

Ultimately, we secured a unconditional contract aided by the negotiating skills of Frank Vosper & Di Barry from Vosper Realty.

Homesell? - all up, it works, it's personal & cost effective; - it gets our tick of approval.'

Ewald & Penny - Paengaroa


"We have just sold our house with Homesell!! Not only did we get the figure previous estate agents said we WOULDN’T achieve.... we DIDN’T have the pleasure of paying $35,000 in agents commission!!

Viewers appreciated our longer open home times and having their questions answered immediately and were not (as we were told by agents) unhappy to talk to the vendor. It was quite the opposite in fact. Viewers were very keen to hear about the property and its attributes. Potential buyers appreciated having a personal relationship with us. Having an “ offers over” price told the viewer what the base limit was. It was clear and no mystery. We had two offers and have gone unconditional today and will be in our new home for Xmas. Not bad when we only decided to sell early September!! Easy, no drama, and we felt supported by Homesell all the way. Thank you so much Jane."

Malita & Peter - Athenree


"My comments would be...

1. We had Homesell recommended by a friend who said "who better to sell your property than you?"

2. While the impression is that inspection is available to buyers anytime, in fact the owner can arrange inspection to suit their schedule.

3. Buyers like a price indication

4. Pay the extra fee for drone photography and videos

5. The Homesell team were very efficient, their support package and research was excellent, and the whole sale process was dead easy.

Thanks to Jane Simmons and her team at Homesell"

Colin, Ohope Beach



'I'd like to say also how good I'm feeling about the whole process with HomeSell. Right from my first meeting with you Jane, I felt confident I could do this! And using HomeSell Pro was an added bonus. This was a first for me & Andrea explained everything clearly & patiently. I would use them again in a heartbeat. Thank you again to the whole team at HomeSell'

Maree, Waihi



Repeat customers Pauline and Just Cochrane recently sold their lovely Papakura home, this time opting to use HomeSell Pro. They enjoyed the benefits of having our Licensed Property Negotiators take care of all the negotiation and paperwork, whilst at the same time saving over $20,000 in agent commission! Here's what they had to say...

"Our Negotiators gave us an awesome service. Helping us throughout the time it took to sell our home. Heather & Derek were always available to take our calls and dealt with everything in a very professional manner. Their knowledge of the market was invaluable to us and all the advice was welcomed and taken on board. Their weekly feedback from the viewing parties and comments about our house gave us an insight as to their expectations. We highly recommend the team at HomeSell Pro and thank them for all their support."

Just and Pauline Cochrane



"Chris and the team at HomeSell did a superb job. We sold our unit within 4 weeks! The staff were professional with excellent customer service and communication. Highly recommended to everyone."

Pritpal Dhillon,
Papatoetoe, Auckland


Hi Jane,

Thank you so much for your support and guidance with selling our home. You gave us the confidence boost we needed to achieving our goal of selling privately. Your friendly advice and support, and the professional photographs made all the difference to our advertising. It would have been a completely different experience without you. I would recommend using HomeSell in a heart beat.
Thanks again Jane.

Donna & Andrew Moore


Thanks for a great service. This is the 2nd house I've sold with HomeSell in 3 years and I've found the whole process to be stress free and I've had great results both times. I recommend HomeSell to friends, family and work colleagues all the time and would never sell any other way in the future. Thanks for providing such a professional service at such a reasonable cost.

Kind Regards,


We wish to thank you for the HomeSell experience that we received from you, we would recommend your company to everyone that we come into contact with. The professionalism you showed was second to none, from the photos to the backup help. We wish you well in the future.

Kind Regards,
Neil & Colleen


Chris and the team at HomeSell did a superb job for a reasonable price. We sold within days. The staff were professional and very responsive throughout. Highly recommended.

Kind Regards,
Geoff Clover - Lake Hawea


Wow, what a success with Homesell!

Our property went online on a Friday mid December, was sold on Sunday lunchtime, went unconditional the following Wednesday.

All done in 5 days, does it get any better than that!!

Thank you Jane, for the great presentation of our property, very professionally done.

Kind Regards,
Werner & Maegi - Tauranga


“Extremely happy with the HomeSell service, very professional marketing, great advice, and best of all saved me thousands in real estate fees. My property was listed on a Thursday afternoon and expressions of interest and negotiations with the buyer by Saturday lunchtime, and an unconditional sale within 6 days of being listed, I didn't even have time to have an open home!!! A special thanks to Jane for going over and above to come back and take updated photos after painting and staging my property."

Thanks again,
Courtney - Tauranga


Thank you for the brilliant marketing package which produced a sale within a few weeks. Although both of us had previously spent years selling real estate, choosing to add the Negotiation Package was a smart decision, resulting in a higher price then we had come to expect

Brian & Cecily


Thank you very much for providing us with the HomeSell service for the recent sale of our bach and family home. Your service was highly efficient and saved us many thousands of dollars. We strongly recommend HomeSell & Frank Vosper as the negotiator for anyone selling their property

Paul, Papamoa


Hi Jane, just a quick note to say a big thank you to yourself and "HomeSell", for making our journey selling our property so simple. Your photos were superb, as was all communication, with yourself and your team.

I will always recommend your Company to others who are thinking of selling
their homes. Having the additional option to engage Frank at Vosper Realty Negotiating Services was an extra bonus for us, which made selling our home so easy.

Sue & Des, Omokoroa


"We definitely could not have sold this quickly, easily or for the price we wanted without your help"

Rhys & Nicki


Hi Chris and the Homesell team,

We just wanted to say a big thank you for helping us sell our home.

I was very impressed with my initial meeting with Chris, especially his knowledge of the property market and the up to date data he had, which helped to answer all my questions. Communication from Chris and the team was superb throughout the process, they were able to put through any changes / requests we had. What we liked about using HomeSell is the full control and transparency we had over the process. HomeSell offers many different options and you could receive as much or as little help as you liked.

Auction day came around in no time and we knew we did our absolute best to market our property, that in turn translated to a fantastic result. Thanks again team!

Ranyi Chung
Remuera - Auckland


I'm so rapt we went with you, Husband was adamant we should list with an agent, really glad I bossed him and said no. We saved about $12.5k. Guess who's taking me out for dinner now !!

I was thrilled with your professionalism, Chris's help and the extreme promptness of everything Wicked cool Thanks HomeSell rocks I'll be heavily recommending you to all my wee friends

Kind Regards,
Donna - Taranaki


Congrats to Terry & Karen, with their little helper, who sold in Dargaville


We found the whole experience of selling our home privately to be a very pleasant, straight forward, and cost-effective exercise, and will DEFINITELY use HomeSell again. We achieved a better price than we would have with an agent, we felt that we were in full control, and it was an absolute pleasure to work with Chris and Sarah from the Auckland office. Highly recommended, why pay an agent to upload a listing, answer a few calls, and charge 20k+?

Thanks again,
Tae - Manurewa


Hello Homesell team,

We thank you for your professionalism and dedication, quick response on fast changing circumstances, very good communication and friendly support. We now look forward to selling our section with HomeSell :) Many thanks!

Best regards
Chris Alexandru
Ranui - Auckland


Hello Jane,

Progress report:

Sale & Purchase Agreement (with the first party to view) went unconditional yesterday, settlement 15 June.

The first viewers presented a conditional offer on day 4 of the listing, closely matched by an offer from the second viewers on the same day.

It's a great result for us, and many thanks to you Jane for stunning photography and listing text. The 2 day turnaround, from your visit to listing, was remarkable and I think going live for Easter was key in the outcome. Thank you very much.

Kind Regards,


We are very impressed with how easy it was to sell privately, and how much more personal it was showing people through our own house rather than letting agents do it! Of course the biggest bonus is no commission! We will definitely recommend your company to others should the opportunity arise!

Bernard & Leanne


At first I was skeptical of using HomeSell to sell our property, but we found the HomeSell representative to be exceptionally professional and qualified to put my mind at ease on the process of the marketing and the eventual sale of our property.

Our property was on the market or advertised for less than three weeks before we had an offer (which we did not accept), however two days later we had another offer far better which we did accept and we can honestly say that we have been able to sell our house for a very good price and we do not have to pay agents fees. We are very happy and would recommend that any person planning on selling there home to consider HomeSell as an alternative to using a real estate agent first.



Hi Jane

Just want to say a VERY BIG THANK YOU for guiding me through the recent sale of my property with HomeSell. The process was so easy and ended with a quick and successful sale.

I also appointed Frank Vosper and Di Barry of Vosper Realty to do the negotiating side of things. As I had multiple offers in a short space of time their input was very helpful and beneficial and I was very glad to have taken up this option that HomeSell offered.

I was a little nervous initially about selling privately through HomeSell but having taken the plunge, so to speak, I am very thankful I did so.

I would not hesitate to recommend HomeSell to any prospective vendors.

Thank you once again Jane!

Kind regards
Jenny McLachlan


Jane has to be one of the most professional people that I have dealt with. Her ability to listen to what I envisaged around the sale of the property and discuss strategies gave me confidence that this was the best option for me.

The photos, the advertising and the process was second to none. Would I use HomeSell again... without a doubt! Have I told people about my experience - ABSOLUTELY.

Mount Maunganui

Sold in 5 days & Saved Thousands

"We would highly recommend HomeSell to anyone who is considering selling their property privately. We saved thousands in real estate agent fees, and the whole process was straight forward and extremely quick. We had an unconditional sale within 5 days!! Jane was so great to work with, and explained the process to us clearly. It was comforting to know we could contact her anytime to get advice. The photographs of the property were much better than many agency listings that we have looked at, and the road-side sign was excellent. We would like to say thank you to Jane and the HomeSell team for their high-standards and efficient work. We couldn't have wished for a better experience."

Matt & Rebecca.


Hi Team

Our property is now SOLD. We had a lot of interest within the first two days of listing and we had multiple viewings and two offers on paper within 48 hours of listing on the Trade Me and HomeSell web sites.

We were very pleased with the professional photographs and had several comments on how effective these were. The sign looks great, but we went under offer before we had time to put it up!

A big thank you to the team for your very prompt and effective service.


John Iseli and Diana Adams

Hello Jane,

Just wanted to thank you for giving me the opportunity to sell our property with HomeSell.

I found this way of selling real estate to be Professional, and easy to follow the well put together Marketing plan. The fact that you were available by phone or in person to assist with questions and helpful information was so valuable and made the whole experience a positive effortless task. Once again thanks to you and the team at HomeSell. I would highly recommend this way of selling and buying real estate.

Warm regards,
Mary Wynn

To The Homesell Team

Thank you for the email update. We have SOLD our property already and have settlement on 16th Dec 2016. We were impressed with your service
which allowed us to sell beyond our expectations in a matter of days.
We had a conditional agreement before the first open home and thus were able to inform all attendees of the situation at that time.

We found your staff professional, knowledgeable, approachable, enthusiastic and friendly and have already referred friends to your services. We will definitely use HomeSell again in the future as it has been a smooth and stress free experience.

Many many thanks

Lynda & Andrew


Hi Chris

Wanted to let you know my property went unconditional today. Thank you very much for all your help throughout it all! You definitely made it a lot easier! I was selling Home Sell to everyone that came through to view the property. So I hope you get some more work out of it as I raved about the service, advice and photography.

31 Park Road - Palmerston North


Hi team.

I've been preaching the the good word to everyone that you don't need real estate agents to sell your house!!

Pretty much everyone I showed through my house said good on you for selling it yourself; and how honest & refreshing it was to deal with the owner instead of a full of s**t agents! I told them that $850 with HomeSell was a tad better than $8000 with an agent!!

Thanks again for everything!



Hi Homesell,

Sorry for the slow reply, I've been absolutely swamped! Our latest unit was sold within a few days of the online adverts going up. In fact there were so many people after the first 48 hours we ended up selling 3 of the units! We sold all of them $30-50k above our expectations, so we're thrilled. We've used HomeSell numerous times now and will be back in touch soon to list another! It sends shivers down my spine to think about how much extra we would have spent on agent fees over the last few years without HomeSell.

Onehunga - Auckland


Dear Jane,

We would like to thank you and HomeSell for the service and support you gave during the sale of our property.

The whole marketing package was excellent and we were most impressed with the quality of the photographs, and also the manual which was so easy to follow.

Our own performance surprised us as well, the sale took 4 weeks from start to finish, albeit in a buoyant market.

Would we go down the direct sale route with HomeSell again - you can bet your life we would! Saving $18000 to $20000 on agency commission is just too good to miss. Who knows more about your own property than us? No one.

Brian & Trish


This is just to let you know that the offer on our property at 40 Hewer Crescent (ref 12642) has today gone unconditional. We had a fantastic response to the advertising, and are delighted with the result. Selling the property ourselves has created a fantastic saving for both us and the buyers, a win-win all around.

Thanks very much for your help and advice throughout the process.

Diane and David Lloyd
Lower Hutt


We would like to thank HomeSell for the superb service we received marketing our home. The package was very reasonably priced and we were really happy with all the inclusions.

HomeSell were super quick to respond to queries and helpful in all aspects of the sale process. The photos taken were of high quality and our agent went above and beyond to ensure we were happy with the finished product- returning to take outdoor pictures in a better light and even hand delivering our sign just in time for the open home!

We could not fault any aspect of the service and the value for money was fantastic. We would definitely recommend using HomeSell to others and will return ourselves in future.

Thanks Homesell,
Shobna and David


A Big thanks to Jane and the Homesell team.

We have recently sold our orchard via HomeSell, and would recommend anyone selling any property to use HomeSell.

We had lots of enquires , mainly due to the brilliant photos taken and write up by Jane, the Homesell representative.

The benefits we found Selling via Homeless was it allowed us to have direct contact with each potential buyer, and give the buyer an honest view of the property, and the neighbours and all aspects of the property. We met some amazing wonderful people, many of whom we had common history and interests.

Also we could answer questions on the spot, as often Real estate agents don’t have all the answers.

But perhaps the main benefit of selling with HomeSell, was that we had control over when we made appointments to view that was convenient for us, allowing us to to continue our busy business activities and life with agents bringing unqualified buyers at their convenience.

Besides saving thousands of dollars on commission, we found HomeSell easy and a rewarding experience and would gladly recommend the HomeSell system of selling to anyone.



Hi Chris

Thanks for the assistance HomeSell provided. This is the easiest way to sell a house and your Property Negotiation Service was certainly the key to doing this sale remotely PLUS good value all day long! We worked together with Mike doing the follow ups that I supplied. I had more control over the outcome this way than using an agent serving you up their hidden agendas. Too easy!

Best regards
Toni - Queensland, Australia (Sold in Whangaparaoa, Auckland)


Thank you for all your help and guidance in selling our sections for a top price without an auction and in a very short space of time.

This is the second property you have sold for us. Well done.

We have no hesitation in recommending HomeSell to other vendors.

Neville & Laraine


Thanks for your help throughout the initial stages of us getting on the HomeSell road to doing it without a land agent. I’m now driving around in a brand new SsangYong Diesel Korando … our real estate agent fees equivalent!

Many Thanks

'Selling with Excitement and Ease'

Hi Jane

Just found a moment to write to you… here’s our experience with Homesell.

“We can not recommend HomeSell highly enough! Professional, efficient, friendly and affordable. We sold our home with excitement and ease in only 10 days, an empowering experience selling privately. Massive thanks to Jane and the team for their support in making our dreams come true”

Greig and Nic Mitchell

Homesell Surpassed our Expectations

Thank you to Jane and her fantastic team,

Our experience selling through HomeSell surpassed our expectations. We went for the pick ‘n’ mix option and thought as we chose the more basic package that that there would be a minimal service component apart from what was offered in this package. This was certainly not the case, not only did Jane take fantastic photos of our property and provide all the services listed in the package we chose but the advice, time and genuine interest she had in helping us achieve a sale really impressed us. Jane also has a fantastic team who were always quick to respond to any queries/changes we had in regards to our listing. I would highly recommend using the HomeSell service to anyone thinking of selling as Jane offered so much more than just a product.


Deborah Flowers

Outstanding Result in Tauranga with HomeSell

Listing our home with Jane at Home Sell was the best decision we could've made to sell our home. Not only was the entire process straight forward & hassle free, the returns were unlike anything we dreamed of! We listed it as "enquiries over" which turned out to be a really successful way to sell. We thoroughly enjoyed the level of control we had over the process, the support we received from Jane was fantastic & the marketing was superb.

We would have no hesitation in recommending HomeSell to others looking to sell their property & would definitely use Home Sell again ourselves.

Thanks so much Jane!

Stephen & Sarah


Thank you to the HomeSell team for such a professional deal. Advice, photographs, signage, advertising and support all excellent value. Excellent price for property and expenses with HomeSell so realistic instead of usual real estate fees. I found the combination of Auction and the Property Negotiation Service was my best decision. Fantastic value. Recommendation to anyone to use HomeSell. 10 out of 10.

Colleen Munro
The Gardens, Auckland


We would like to give our thanks for a great way to sell our property we would and have recommended your service to our family, friends and neighbours.

We found the pack you sent very helpful the Viewing Register & the Property photo hand outs with all the Property information and on the back the detailed information about the Auction process excellent to give to the interested buyers. We are so pleased how everything came together and the 4 weeks went very quickly to end up with a fantastic outcome for both us a the sellers and the purchaser. We had great feedback from the Families that view our home they said it was much better to deal with the homeowners at the open homes made it more relaxing and could see it as a loved family home.

We are so happy we used the Negotiation service ,Mike was great to deal with and took the hard work out of the whole process. Mike put together the feedback from the families that viewed at the home put this in a spread sheet that was very easy to read and really good detail. Mike took all the stress out of the process he kept us up to date all the way though the process. I would recommend every one who is looking at selling their homes to definitely use Mike, we have already given his details to one of the neighbours who is

looking at putting their home on the market soon. What a great day the auction day was Mike was putting everyone at ease ,to an absolutely great outcome, again this was a excellent/fantastic outcome for both us the sellers and the buyers.

Shona & Alan Bills


I highly recommend HomeSell. The flyers and sign they provided were high quality and attractive. The staff are friendly, helpful and responsive and went out of their way to help us. Selling our home ourselves allowed us to achieve the price we needed and saved us around $20,000. We would certainly use HomeSell again in the future and recommend this service to our family and friends.


Hi Chris & Team

Thanks for your efforts, we were really happy with your service, professional photo's and advice provided. I would have no hesitation recommending HomeSell to friends and family, and will definitely consider HomeSell when selling my home as it achieves the same result, a little more work yes, but nice to have the extra cash in our pockets, as no agents fees!

Palmerston North

We’ve Sold & Saved Thousands

Dear Jane,

We want to thank you for helping us to save thousands and achieve our dream of selling our most valuable asset.

Selling your own home takes a little bit of self belief and courage with Jane and HomeSell behind us we achieved our dream.

When we first went to the market we a phone call from an agent who decided it was his duty to inform us of our impending failure to sell and engage successfully with potential buyers due to buyers not wanting to deal with the owners. We found this to be far from the truth, we asked viewers to our home if they had any problems dealing with us, all said ‘ not at all’. Some buyers had previously sold privately themselves and they said they actually preferred not to deal through an agent.

We also noticed an article about real estate in the local paper, about agents warning against the perils of buying off private sellers or selling yourself.

The advise from HomeSell for buyers selling is exactly what the agents advise, to complete due diligence by getting a builders report, LIM report, check council files and also get your lawyer to check the Sale & Purchase agreement. It’s easy to see why private selling is becoming more and more popular, therefore a threat to real estate agents. Our advise is if your considering selling with HomeSell, then ‘ Go For It’ . We were successful, and what a great sense of satisfaction ...and we saved thousands of dollars!

Thanks Jane & Homesell.

Sold in 4 Weeks

Hi Jane,

Thank you very much for all your help with marketing the house and assisting with selling it so promptly. To sell within 4 weeks and for the price I wanted made the whole process a real successes. The photos certainly made a huge difference once you came along and updated our old trade me listing.

Thanks again to you and the HomeSell team for the great communication, marketing, professional advice & outstanding service.

Dear Chris and Team,

Thank you on behalf of John, our family and myself, for going the extra mile for us, we really appreciate your time and efficiency!

A very grateful customer

Sold in one Week!

Hi Jane

We would like to thank you and the HomeSell team very much for helping us get a very easy and quick sale on our property. Your professionalism, attitude and support during the process was very much appreciated.

The brochures, sign and little additions of the “SOLD” sticker arrived promptly and in good order. Your eye to detail on the photos was amazing and we believe they helped get people through the door leading to a quick ( 1week ) turn around for the SOLD sign to be up!

This was our first time using HomeSell and we have no hesitations to use them again in the future.

Thank you again,

Adam & Kim

Great Result & Quick Sale

We would like to thank HomeSell for their assistance in selling our home.

After trying to sell our property through sales agents, our experience with HomeSell was extremely positive.

Their representative was cheerful, helpful, supportive and professional.

We found it a pleasure to show interested viewers through our open homes, and our sale was negotiated after only three weeks.

We would recommend this form of selling to others.

Christmas Success in Pukekohe

Thanks to all the team and especially Chris for your initial help and the speed in which you were able to assist us in the relatively easy process. We accepted an offer within 2 days of listing above the 'Enquiries Over' price. Rest assured I will be singing your name to all my contacts and if we sell again I will certainly be listing through yourselves.

Kind Regards

Second Successful Sale with Homesell

Hello Jane, We recently sold our family home with the help of HomeSell. This is the second occasion we have successfully used HomeSell and by doing so have saved substantial real estate agent commission fees. On both occasions we met or exceeded the expected market price.

Like most sellers, when selling via a real estate firm you are inclined to add their fees to your selling price which may have a detrimental impact as far as are prospective purchasers are concerned. With HomeSell the set up costs are very affordable and so easy to manage. Their rep will guide you through all the details and your chosen marketing plan.

The key to selling is your home privately is first class presentation and a realistic asking price. Do your home work before setting a sale price.

We would recommend you try HomeSell it can save you a considerable amount of money.

"Wonderful support from the team"

Hi Jane, we are now getting settled into our rental and will relax till after Christmas before looking for a home to purchase.

We found the whole HomeSell process great. Wonderful support from the team. A lot of our enquiries came from the fabulous listing and photos on your website and Trade Me, but also from the large sign you made up for the street.

It is really great not paying Real Estate fees and holding Open Homes wasn't a hassle.

Thank you also for recommending Sharon at Key Conveyancing. She is totally professional and also made the selling process easy.

Thanks again
Regards Christine and Terry

Auction success in Glen Eden

Hi Chris, I just want to sing the praises of your Auctioneer. He was absolutely fantastic and squeezed every penny he could out of the bidders that were there, all done with a great sense of humour. We were blown away by his performance.

Your fantastic photography helped and buyers that came through our open homes thought I worked for HomeSell as we had all the professional looking promotional materials out, the flag flying and good open home signage. All this made a big difference to their overall impression of our property.

"Your professionalism, helpfulness and photography is amazing!"

Hi Jane, we got an offer 4 days after putting the house on the market! It just took time for the LIM and price negotiations etc.

It was a fantastic simple way to sell your house! The professionalism, helpfulness and photography is amazing, not to mention the massive savings in commission!

We will definitely recommend HomeSell and will do this again in the future.

"Thanks for your guidance and advice in selling my lifestyle property"

It had been on the market with real estate agents for 7 months earlier this year and, and when I changed to HomeSell in October, it sold in 10 days. I believe your brilliant zoom photographs of the decks and HomeSell’s creative and well-presented advertising material (ie websites, brochures, cards, and signs) attracted increased buyer interest.

Once buyers made contact with me, HomeSell’s vendor selling hints and written guidelines certainly helped me become a better prepared, confident, calm, and effective salesman. Many buyers commented that they preferred talking to the owner because their specific questions can be answered without delay.

They also know that HomeSell properties are usually realistically priced because they don’t have the financial burden of paying a real estate agent’s commission. It was a rewarding experience to receive several offers and then a sale price above the CV.

Thanks Homesell.

Success in Napier

To the HomeSell team, we sold for $10,000 above the price a real estate agent told us we would get after he looked at the home (and no agents fees, how good is that!). Once again a wonderful result by using HomeSell. We would never go any other way. Many thanks

Hi Jane, we are delighted to tell you our house has gone unconditional. Selling through HomeSell has been such an easy process and we would like to thank you and all the HomeSell team for their work and support.

"The photos look incredible"

I just wanted to give my heartfelt thanks for the amazing work that the HomeSell team have done. I am truly overwhelmed at how different our experience has been using HomeSell.

You have done an amazing job all around. The photos look incredible. I was comparing them to the photos that were around when we purchased the house and the quality is far superior. It has been wonderful to be involved in the selection process of the photos.

Our last experience in selling a property we used an agent and we were so disappointed in the photos as we felt they chose the worst angle possible. We felt bullied all along the way and felt like we had no control. This has been the complete opposite experience and we just wanted to express our gratitude for everything you have done.

I hope you have a great weekend knowing that you have made one customer very happy.

Whangaparoa - Auckland

Nothing but great service!

Hi Chris, we will certainly tell anyone we know about you guys. We have found the whole process very easy. You and your team have provided nothing but great service. All the paperwork you provide and photos were very professional, which we are sure helped with the quick sale.

Another Successful Sale with Homesell

Dear Jane,

Thank you so much for the assistance, advice and care you have given us through the entire sale process. From our first phone call to enquire about HomeSell, you have answered all of our questions and explained clearly how the process would work. It's been great to know you have only been an email or phone call away and would always get back to us promptly if you were busy at the time. We appreciate how you showed us our options, but then assisted us to market the home the way we wanted, to suit our situation. Also the encouragement we
needed at times too and being able to point us in the right direction when it came to handling offers.

Now with an unconditional offer, we have a successful outcome all round. We're very happy and the purchasers are too. This is the second time we have used HomeSell (first time in Auckland) and again are thrilled with your services and results achieved. We highly recommend you to all who have asked “what it is like to use HomeSell?”

Thank you again.

Kind regards
Gibbs Family,

To all the personnel of Homesell

Thank you for all your hard work done on our property's advertising. It is fantastic and the service is like we never had before. In future your company is the way we'll go and promote.

Thank you.

Bought & Sold with Homesell

We’ve both sold and bought recently using HomeSell and we felt like we were the best people to sell our house as we know it way better than an estate agent, and of course it saves a heap of money. Buying privately is great, much less intimidating than with an agent, less pressure and more relaxed through negotiations.


Success in Hawkes Bay:

Yeehah! easier than you think ay, dealing with people face to face with transparency makes it so much easier and faster. I got my asking price after one week on market. I did alot of research and based it on a registered valuation. Everyone I`ve spoken to is keen to try private. Yep the SOLD sign went up with pride.

Mike, Hastings

Quick turnaround of marketing materials leads to a quick sale!

We just wanted to say thank you so much for the quick turnaround of photos and promotional material, plus your usual great service in getting our Arthur St property on the market last weekend. We are pretty sure we already sold it, will know for sure tomorrow morning.

Kind regards

"Homesell blows away any myths about private selling"

We have gone unconditional on our house, which sold in 2 weeks. We won't hesitate to recommend HomeSell....your company blows all the myths about selling a house privately out of the water. The photos were beautiful and your added help was fantastic. If we ever have to sell a house again, I know where to go!

Thanks again for everything

With many thanks and much excitement in being able to start our new build project, can I request that you put our property as sold. Even though I had doubts that we could pull off this private selling thing, with your help and the follow up emails, this has been a straight forward and easy process and we have literally saved ourselves about $15000!
I will be recommending your company to all - Thanks so much

Success in South Auckland

Thanks HomeSell. The fantastic photos, it looked a million bucks (relatively speaking) I will certainly be singing your praises to anyone looking for a private sale.

Manurewa - Auckland

Age proves to be no barrier to a success private sale

Age is no barrier for an 86 year old Rotorua man who has recently used HomeSell to successfully sell his home. ‘ I thought private selling was good, the buyers that came through had seen the house on either the Homesell or Trade Me websites or from the HomeSell paper. People came from Rotorua, Tauranga and Auckland to have a look at the house. The photos and advertising looked very good and I’ve saved around $14,500 in real estate costs. It’s definitely worth giving it a go, private selling with HomeSell help, was well worth it for me.


Feedback from a Hamilton customer:

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the quality photographs you took of our home. Our next door neighbours have put their home on the market today and looking at the effort their real estate agent has taken in presenting their property, I can only worry for our neighbours. The blurb and photos Home sell have created is FAR more superior than the "professional" agents!

Carol-Lynn, Hamilton

Success in Canterbury:

Thank you for your email asking how we were getting on with the sale. We received a good offer almost immediately the house went on the market and today went unconditional. We have been very pleased with the service from HomeSell and have been recommending you to everybody we know. We thought the advertising materials and the marketing advice were very professional, the photography beautiful and the ability to talk with you over the phone about strategy comforting.

Many thanks
Nancy, Cashmere, Christchurch

Success in West Auckland:

Thank you so much for making this so easy, the process was not as daunting as I was preparing myself for, and I appreciated being able to call you for a steer in the right direction when I was ever unsure of something. It was all very easy really. 2 weeks of open homes was all it took!! (not to mention a saving of about 20k!!)

Te Atatu Peninsula

Buyer comment "I’m so pleased that I’m talking with you the owners"

Thank you very much for your assistance with the recent sale of our home. We have thoroughly enjoyed private selling with the HomeSell service, interestingly we had several buyers make the comment ‘ I’m so pleased that I’m talking with you the owners’ as we were able to inform them about all the features, giving buyers excellent information, and were able to answer any questions realistically and honestly.

It was also advantageous having the flexibility as the owners of being able to show people through at anytime. We had many comments on how well the house had been presented, and although we had buyer enquiry from other regions, our buyers lived locally and made contact with us from seeing the street sign.

We felt it was worth doing open homes, and we had well attended open homes with on some weekends 8 and 9 groups through plus buyers ringing to make times to view the house. The photos and marketing material presented our house well, thank you for your assistance and support. We’re sold!

Pamela & David,

Success in East Auckland:

Chris, thanks so much for your help to sell our property, it was absolutely the right way for us to go and we're delighted with the outcome. We will certainly recommend HomeSell to everyone we can.

Professional, efficient service gave me confidence

Thank you to the HomeSell team and especially you Jane with your wonderful photography and attention to detail. The service was professional and efficient and allowed me to confidently sell my house, knowing what to say to people and being able to be honest and genuine when talking to people was the key to ending up with a buyer within five weeks. Awesome!!!!


2nd Time Success on the North Shore

With great happiness I am writing to you, to let you know that we have SOLD our house! It's all happened so fast, so we've been packing and moving like mad for the last few days. Thank you again for helping us sell our home...I will always recommend people to use you.

Papamoa – Sold in 8 Days

We received an offer on our home within 24 hours and had gone unconditional with in a week. We think the photos on the websites looked extremely good and that’s what attracted the buyers.
We would definitely recommend HomeSell, it really worked for us... and we've saved approximately $21,000 in real estate fees!

Many thanks,
Terry & Jan

AUCTION Success in Auckland:

We sold for much more than all agents advised us and we don't have any fees to pay!

Upgrading to the Super feature on trade me really paid off, and we had almost 9000 views of our listing in less than 3 weeks. We had 3 weekends of open homes with the auction being on the 3rd weekend, so a very short marketing period however we had over 90 individual groups through our house. We think the quality photography and upgrading our listings on Trade Me really aided this.

We will (and have already) recommend HomeSell to others.

Great advice to other sellers is to respond to enquiries quickly and follow up with people who have viewed your property - send the LIM, title, copy of brochure that day and then a few days later call all people (this is a time to get feedback on price and you can begin to gauge your reserve also know who are really keen).

Thanks again for your help,
Emma & Nick, One Tree Hill
