She has integrity, commitment and passion to get the job done with the less amount of stress to you. No Nonsense and No False Promises! Testimonials Meeting Heather and dealing with her was an absolute pleasure. Her attention to detail and superior communication was a pleasure to experience. We cannot talk highly enough about the high level of service we received from Heather. Heather is extremely helpful, her genuine down to earth personality and drive to get the best result was commendable. If you are dealing with Heather you need to know that you are dealing with someone who is honest and whom you can trust. We trusted Heather and she sold us our dream home! We are more than happy to recommend Heather to anyone who is looking at buying or selling. Michael and Julia Kilian To Whom It May Concern we first met Heather back in late 2015. We had expressed a desire to sell our home but the timing was not quite right at that stage. As the months went by Heather would occasionally visit making a courtesy call to indicate that she was still there and keen to assist us. We kept turning her away and it was a year before we were ready to contemplate a sale. At that time, we selected Heather to represent us as we liked her patience, politeness and the persistence she had shown over this time. Selling a home can be stressful but Heather did her professional best to ease us through the process of an ‘expressions of interest’ marketing campaign. This method we were unfamiliar with but Heather was more than optimistic of achieving a very positive outcome. This was achieved in early March, 2017 after a vigorous three week marketing program. We were very happy with the result and the price that was achieved. We would highly recommend Heather's services to any other potential vendors who may be contemplating selling. Lindsey and Peter D - Auckland I engaged with Heather as a property purchaser and found the overall experience very positive. Heather is totally professional in her dealings. She has an exceptional work ethic, very high personal ethics and is very buttoned down on process. Communication is top notch with Heather on the job; she responds in a very timely manner 24/7, does what she undertakes to do and really goes the extra mile to make sure that all details are taken care of. As mentioned, I was the purchaser in the transaction, I found Heather was always courteous and respectful, and was definitely a strong advocate for her vendor client. There is no doubt in my mind that she would be totally dedicated and tireless in achieving great results as a sales agent. Louise on behalf of the Davis Family Heather Doran Chappell did a great job in helping my Family Trust purchase a Commercial Office Property in Queen Street, Central Auckland. From my initial inquiry, Heather was prompt in providing me with all the necessary information, arrange viewings, and ensured a quick turnaround on feedback from the Vendor. On a personal level, Heather's warm and friendly style certainly helped with my negotiations. I would certainly use Heather again as an agent for any future property transactions. Tim M – Auckland Central Dear Heather after having previously marketed my home through another reputable agency, of which the outcome was completely unsuccessful, this resulted in a feeling of despondency over the selling procedure. I was then advised by a friend to approach Heather Doran, a Real Estate agent who came with high recommendations. Engaging Heather in the marketing of my property was the best decision I made in accomplishing a successful outcome. Her approach to marketing my property was very professional, as she outlined all the pros and cons of exactly what a buyer could expect, thus eliminating any surprises for potential buyers. This resulted in Heather obtaining a successful sale, a result that I am very pleased with, and most grateful for. In my dealings with Heather I have found her to be very professional, helpful, and of very high integrity. I therefore have no hesitation in recommending Heather Doran to anyone who is contemplating the buying or selling of a property, no matter where it is. Peter T - Orewa Dear Heather Mary and I would like to thank you very much for selling our commercial property at Custom Street, Auckland Central. We were very impressed with your professional, enthusiastic, and friendly approach to the quick sale of our shop. We were particularly pleased with your regular emails and phone calls which kept us fully informed of progress at all times and we were very happy with the sale price. We would highly recommend you to anyone we know who may want to sell a property. Best wishes for continued success in your Real Estate career. Again thank you very much. Warm regards Mary & Tony O - Whangaparaoa Hello Heather Peter and I would like to thank you for the fantastic effort you put into marketing our house at Stillwater, to enable us to purchase our new home and lifestyle in Whitianga. We have ”history” as they say, with you selling our North Shore home… achieving over the listed price and working above and beyond to reach settlement when the “ cash out clause” was invoked. Naturally you were our “Agent of Choice” to market our Stillwater home, again achieving a great price along with another miracle when the “cash out clause” was invoked on our purchase of our home in Whitianga. The stress levels were rising in our house, but your calm, professional, confident approach in both situations enabled us to move forward with joy. Thank you for listening, really listening to us both as we came to grips with this huge decision to move to Whitianga. We both would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and family, who are about to market their properties. Wishing you continued success in the market place. Regards Fiona & Peter M - Stillwater Dear Heather we were delighted with the marketing and sale of our property in Orewa. Heather knew the market well and was able to give us realistic and unbiased values. She walked the tightrope of getting the best price for the property, and at the same time encouraging the purchaser that the price was fair. Heather had the additional problem that we do not live in New Zealand, and it was a relief for us to have her manage all facets of the sale. Heather coped well with the tricky period of due diligence and the nett result was a clean sale. We would not hesitate to use Heather again for the sale of future properties. Barbara & Kim G – Orewa To whom it may concern I have enjoyed very much Heather’s involvement in the sale of my property. I am an elderly widow and Heather has treated me with love and respect. What could have been a very traumatic few weeks, has instead been a very smooth transition. Heather is “THE BEST” in her profession. Elisabeth H - Waiwera

We have been both vendors and purchasers so have experienced both sides of the process with her” Fraser & Emma “Now that we are the proud owners of our sensational beach front property, we thought it would be appropriate to write and thank you for guiding us in search for a new home prior to our arrival in New Zealand. You took us under your wing before our arrival here. In a very professional manner you presented a great number of properties on the three short visits we made here. You put in a tremendous amount of work, time and effort in researching and preparing the properties for viewing and you gave us a good insight into the various areas that you thought would suit us. Despite some setbacks and disappointments you were not deterred and strangely enough we eventually settled on the very first property you showed us. Simone, you “went the extra mile” and we really appreciate this. John and Kate Welch” Professionalism + Dedication = Record sales.

  • Sue Beaver

    Sue Beaver

    Rural & Lifestyle Sales Consultant

    Honest, compassionate and extraordinarily hardworking, Sue Beaver has over 13 years experience in real estate sales, and goes above and beyond to ensure the absolute best outcome for both the buyer and seller. Sue has a lifetime of farming experience, so she understands the pre-requisites of rural properties. Coupling her successful farming background with having lived locally for over 30 years, she has a comprehensive knowledge of the region and its community – both of which are dear to her heart. Proof of this is Sue’s commitment to being a proud sponsor of Waitoki School, which receives a portion of Sue’s commission from the sale of any property from any Waitoki family. Sue also sponsors the school’s Ag Day and annual high tea. Sue’s greatest satisfaction from her role is being able to take the stress out of buying or selling a property for her clients. That comes from being able to see every potential in a property and giving the best advice in preparing that property for the market. Along with Sue’s proven track record in being a considerate and sincere negotiator, anyone enlisting Sue’s services can have total faith in knowing she will work tirelessly to achieve a highly successful result for everyone she represents. If you want to work with an enthusiastic, reliable and honest agent, look no further than Sue Beaver. Testimonials ”Late last year we purchased a block of land through Sue. We were very impressed with her level of professionalism and honesty so when it came time to sell our first home, Sue was the obvious choice. Throughout both sales, Sue's knowledge and advice helped us with key decisions to achieve the best results. We would recommend Sue to anyone. “ Christina Thiele “Early this year we sold our property at West Coast Rd. At the time it was not the best time to sell but we had already made the decision to move to Australia. As a real estate agent Sue got us the result we needed so we could move to Australia and move on with our lives. Her positive attitude and devotion to the job is impeccable, as well as her local knowledge is of high value to seller and buyers. Both Joanne and I thank Sue for all her efforts and positive attitude and wish her great success for the future.” Mark Crackett “I listed my property in Kaukapakapa with Sue Beaver, Real Estate Agent. The property was tenanted and basically a “do-up.” Sue Beaver got us a contract on the property within 13 days and the deal was finalised just before Christmas. At all times Sue was professional in her dealings with us and coping with a difficult tenant. I would like to thank Sue for her effort and positive attitude and wish her every success for the future.” Stephanie Ross “When it comes to buying or selling, Sue is extremely professional and gives great service and advise. We have sold one property and bought two through Sue and she went above and beyond on every occasion to get us what we wanted. One vendor was particularly difficult and we very nearly walked away, however Sue did everything she could to help all parties to an amicable agreement. I feel very comfortable with Sue and value her honesty and integrity. I would and do recommend her to anyone.” Rosemary Sutton “We first met Sue when we purchased our property in Kaukapakapa several years ago. When we came to sell our property, we knew that we wanted Sue to look after this for us as we knew it would be in good hands. Sue kept us informed at all times, we appreciated her feedback and market knowledge and she is a real pleasure to deal with. Sue has a lovely way with people, is not pushy but gets the job done. We would highly recommend Sue to anyone wanting the best real estate person to sell their property.” www.essencecandles.co.nz “My husband and I were both very impressed with Louisa and Sue's time and patience. It was a real pleasure having them around and nothing phased them throughout the sale of our home. Louisa and Sue are so lovely and caring. They gave the best advice on how we could prepare our property for the Auckland market. Having this wonderful team on board with their knowledge of the area and local history made selling our house very quick and stress less. Their support towards Waitoki school has been very much appreciated and I know that the school will put their donation from the sale of our house to good use. I would highly recommend Sue and Louisa as real estate agents, they work fabulously as a team.” Christina and Tristan Palmer "I used Sue Beaver of Harcourts to sell my rural lifestyle Blocks in Wainui with great success. She has great knowledge, understanding and experience in the rural scene which makes her ideal for selling rural blocks. We have greatly enjoyed working with Sue and look forward to again in the future." Blair Headford "Sue helped us buy our first farm after moving to NZ from the UK, 3 years ago. Since then she has helped us on a subdivision project, aswell as buying another property recently. She has so much rural & local knowledge being a farmer herself, and is happy to pick up the phone day or night. We class Sue as a family friend rather than our agent and I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone thinking of buying or selling." Pip Allen
