    Nikila Creagh

    Sales Manager

    A loyal member of the award winning Harcourts Gold Franchise since 2004, Nikila has a comprehensive knowledge of the Canterbury market, with particular expertise pertaining to post quake issues. With a wide network of professional contacts, issues relating to land zonings, insurance, finance, ‘as is, where is’, geo-tech and structural integrity can all be addressed. There is nothing too great nor too challenging that Nikila is not willing to consider. ‘I believe that to excel in this competitive industry you need to possess a passion for people and property, and be willing to adapt to ever-changing trends that govern this business. Success depends in a very large measure upon individual initiative and exertion, and cannot be achieved except by a dint of hard work’. Committed to exceeding expectations and achieving top results for her clients, Nikila’s biggest reward is experiencing the excitement when her buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals, allowing them to progress to the next stage in their lives – whether they are first home buyers, families, retirees, or serious investors. Assisting others to succeed is also reflected in her personal life supporting local schools and sports groups. Buying and/or selling property is one of the biggest decisions anyone can make. Choice of brand and agent is critical. If it is informed advice on the property market that you require, matched with a professional and caring, client service ethic, Nikila would welcome the opportunity to discuss your needs. Here is what Nikila’s clients have to say: “Nikila was always positive in her approach. She kept us informed and excelled at the various ways of advertising and following up prospective buyers. The photographs of the house inside and out showed it to its best advantage. The best possible price for sale was achieved and we are very happy. Her feedback was amazing and we always knew where we were at. Nikila was so efficient and approachable in the handling of our property sale. Nikila’s professionalism, commitment and enthusiasm was wonderful. She put our minds at rest knowing she was doing her very best and kept up communication with us. We would engage Nikila to sell our own property when ready and will recommend her to our friends and family.” - Mike & Barbara Goggin “Nikila worked very hard for us. We were pleased with the signage, amazing photos and advertising in the Blue Book. Nikila was very approachable and made herself available to us at all times. She is a very pleasant person to deal with and very professional in her approach. Her communication and feedback from potential buyers kept us up with everything. Our house sold due to Nikila’s enthusiasm and efforts” - Phill and Joy Paul "After making the decision to Auction our home "As ls”, I soon realised that as a Licensed Agent I did not wish to market my own home. There was no need to spend time thinking about who we would like to use as our preferred Agent; the obvious choice was to ask Nikila to look after us. Nikila’s knowledge of local sales in the uninsured category was vast and as she was so familiar with the process, the preparation weeks leading up to the start of the Auction were smooth and uneventful. The advertising was well worded, the photos looked great, and we had a lot of positive comments from family and friends, and the number of viewings and interested parties proved that the marketing had worked well. Throughout the process Nikila’s professional approach and calm demeanor helped us through, she always kept us well informed and provided valuable price feedback which enabled us to feel comfortable about setting the reserve with the Auctioneer. On Auction day we were grateful for the work carried out by the entire Gold team in the Auction room, they worked together to achieve an amazing result for us. We can't thank Nikila enough for giving us the gift of a fabulous sale price which has allowed us to move on with our lives and build our new home." - Judith and Arthur Bodger

      Lou Satherley

      Lou’s a real local girl who has spent her whole life living in the city she loves - Christchurch! After spending over ten years working and owning businesses in the health and fitness industry, it was important that she continued to work with people. Couple that with the love of her hometown, community (even more so after all the adversity it has recently faced) and interest in property, Real Estate was a natural choice. “For me it’s important to have a career doing something I love - and both fitness and Real Estate are about helping other people reach their goals and dreams.” Recognising that for most people their home is one of the largest investments they will make, the process of buying and selling a house can be stressful, but Lou knows it doesn’t have to be that way. By taking the time to truly understand her clients’ needs and aspirations, she is able to give total dedication and service to each and every person she deals with. “I believe in taking a genuine interest in my clients to develop a strong long-term relationship with them - first and foremost caring about people.” With a firm belief in good business practice, Lou is loyal and committed to achieving the best possible outcome for her clients... and she does this by keeping them fully informed every step of their journey. When she’s not working, you might find Lou at the beach, riding her mountain bike around Bottle Lake Forest, looking after her large garden, or spending time with family. She also plays badminton, is the President of Avon Badminton Club, and is currently serving on the Board of Badminton Canterbury.
