Carmen was a great person to deal with not only in her professional approach but as a good human and caring person as well, which you don’t find it everyday. She was able to accommodate our needs and requests in a great way and at the same time give the right suggestions and ideas to us. Her humble way of dealing with the whole process of us selling the house, and her expert knowledge and skills made us achieve our goal in not only selling the property but at a very good price too. Would definitely recommend Carmen to any one wanting a great outcome and the best service.

Carmen is warm, professional and probably the most organised and hard working agent you can find. With Carmen, everything is well planned and she always has your best interests on the forefront.  She even got hold of beautiful flower pots from her mother’s garden to line my courtyard for the photo shoot and open homes. She really does weave her magic! We had very high numbers coming through the open homes and our house was sold on auction day with a higher than expected figure with several strong bidders. We are so very pleased with the results!

Kurien Thomas & Jennifer Siew

Carmen is outstanding. Her calm professionalism and empathy made the sale of our house a simple and easy process. She has an instinctive feel for the market and engages excellent professionals to contribute to a very positive outcome. We recommend Carmen without hesitation.

You are, without doubt, a Real Estate Agent whom one feels can be relied upon to deliver.   Whether you are assisting potential Buyers as in our case, you are pleasant, knowledgeable, interested, informed, professional – and so the list goes on.   You will have to buy a larger hat if I continue with the superlatives.   8-}   But they are all true.   It has been a total pleasure deliberating over all aspects of the property.   You quietly and unobtrusively make contact and follow through ensuring everyone is totally apprised of all situations.   Your business ethics culminate in a fair outcome to the Vendor and an exciting addition to the Purchaser.   Thankyou Carmen.   We WILL recommend you.

Carole Ryall and the Robertson Family

We had the pleasure of working with Carmen Holder to sell our house.  As vendors out of town we had a lot of logistics to handle with renovations to the property.  Carmen handled all of this for us with ease and communicated every step of the way.

She organised and liaised with tradespeople to carry out fence, deck and almost a full interior house paint, carpet cleaning, home staging, water blasting, section garden tidy and heat pump investigations.  The house looked fabulous for the marketing campaign and this led to us to accept an outstanding pre auction offer due to her amazing effort and superb negotiation skills.

Carmen went the extra mile for us and even handled and sorted out maintenance items for us post auction with regard to the property.  We are both exceptionally pleased with her level of service and dedication.

We highly recommend Carmen to anyone selling their house – she gets results, nothing is too big a hassle for her and she goes above and beyond to facilitate the sale.

Carmen thank you so much for all your help selling our Birkenhead house.  It could have been difficult with us being ‘overseas vendors’ but you handled both our distance and my sometimes specific requirements and particular-ness with ease and a smile.  Thank you for the days you spent to-ing and fro-ing a huge number of viewers to the house and I also know that you took significant time to talk to as many potential buyers as possible, both during the open homes and the multitude of enquiries you responded to.  We were very happy with the result we achieved at auction and could not have got this without you.  We would not hesitate to recommend you to a smart Birkenhead seller.

Kate and Karl Quinn

When it came time to sell we knew it was time to call Carmen in!  We spoke with several agents from different companies, but we felt most confident and comfortable with you.  We felt you called a spade a spade and didn’t fluff things just to win us over.

Your help and advice regarding how to present our house, and the finishing touches you put into it were amazing.  You have a great eye for detail and fabulous presentation skills.  It almost came to a point where we thought, “this house looks great and so much bigger” maybe we don’t need to sell after all.

All i can say is thank you for helping this family.  Your hard work made it possible for us to comfortably move into our new much larger home.

Until next time!

Geraldine and Richard Maxwell- Birkdale

‘When selling our property the two considerations for us were an agency that had a strong presence in the area and also an agent who reflected our values.   Carmen kept us on track with the things we needed to do and kept us informed throughout the process so that we knew what to expect. She is honest and trustworthy.  We were very pleased with the results, and I would certainly use Carmen again.

Terry & Sharon Manttan

I considered 4 estate agencies, each of which gave me their views on how to best market the property and a package of proposals.  Carmen Holder for Harcourts was not the cheapest, but I had gained some experience watching Carmen obtain a premium price for a neighbourhood property.

I have to really commend Carmen and her team here, for going way beyond all expectations and adding all the trinkets to show the property in its best light. Her efforts and attention to detail were tireless. Carmen was always on hand to ensure no stone was left unturned. Carmen was constantly in contact with me throughout the entire campaign, keeping me informed of all progress.

The property sold at Auction, and I can only congratulate Carmen and the Harcourts team for giving it everything they could to obtain the best result for me. Selling your biggest and most treasured asset is not an easy decision to make, but certainly made easier when placed in the right hands

Jon Roscoe – Hillcrest

The faith we placed in Carmen to look after our interests has proved fully justified and we would strongly recommend her support to anyone entering the property market. The success of the auction was a direct result of her efforts and presentation of the property in the best way possible.

Basil & Joyce Parsons

It has been my pleasure to work with Carmen for over two years. Carmen has a warm and welcoming demeanour and her integrity is without question. Her business practice is faultless – she does exactly what she says she will, she is determined and transparent in her dealings. Carmen has the ability to listen well and ascertain a person’s needs then act in accordance to that. I would absolutely recommend Carmen as a business professional to anyone who wants a friendly, honest and very hardworking professional on their side.
