Gilly has been successfully selling property in the city-fringe area for the last 22 years and therefore her local knowledge is invaluable. Over the years, Gilly has developed a reputation for the highest level of personal service, trust & enthusiasm.
Gilly is an experienced salesperson and has taken more than 100 properties to auction during her time in the industry. She expertly manages the negotiation process – a skill not to be underestimated. Her tenacity, creativity and flair for marketing have resulted in some stunning results for her clients.
Her work ethic, commitment to her clients, all consuming love for the job and impeccable attention to detail means her clients trust and respect her. They place control of their most valuable asset in her hands.
One of the reasons that we chose Custom Residential was because we preferred their on-site auction policy. From our first meeting with Matt and Gilly we received friendly, efficient and very professional service. They listened to our questions and responded quickly to our requests. They always made us feel that the sale of our house was their top priority. Their knowledge of real estate and especially the current market was very apparent and they were obviously supported by a skilled and efficient sales team. We felt that we were in very safe hands and the positive outcome vindicated our trust. We would both recommend them to others and use them again ourselves.
I could not be happier with the way Matt and Gilly handled the sale of my apartment. They worked hard to secure multiple offers, communicated brilliantly, always had the inside word on market goings-on and – most importantly, of course – achieved a great sale price. Couldn't ask for better. Thanks!
I responded to a leaflet that Matt and Gilly dropped into my letter box wanting to know if I was looking to sell my property which at that point I wasn’t but thought I would give them a call and find out what it was worth. Once they had been around to appraise my property, I decided to list it with a price in a time of auction craziness and with one weekend of open homes, I had two offers presented to me and to my delight it was sold! I would definitely use this winning team again – thanks guys!
I don’t often hand out compliments - especially to Real Estate Agents. But I’m making an exception for you. I was impressed with your ideas and your comprehensive plans for marketing my property. I really appreciated your sound advice and support. Because of this I am happy to recommend you to any person considering buying or selling their property.
I have encountered Gilly and Grant three times in recent years either as a purchaser or seller of houses in central Auckland. The first time was when I purchased the house of my dreams in Mt Eden. It was by tender and I was very pleased with the way the process was run. Rather than just simply taking the top bid, significant discussion and negotiation with the top bidders permitted me to be successful. I like to think that genuine bidders get an opportunity to reflect and work through the process rather than being locked into a mechanistic process.
Possibly I was persuaded into paying my maximum, but still was/am delighted with the purchase and have no regrets. I think it shows how effectively Gilly works hard on behalf of the vendor as a negotiator.
The second occasion involved the sale of a residential property in flats.
It was unusual and difficult to value. Although initially at tender, the sale was negotiated before the closing date. I was very happy with the price. The third was a sale at auction during the quiet market in late 2009.
I was not prepared to sell unless I got a good price. It did sell on the day at $70,000 above my reserve. Needless to say I was delighted.
Throughout all these experiences Gilly adopts a relaxed and professional approach at all times. In conjunction with Grant, I felt comfortable at all times regarding the process, the negotiations and the final outcome. Neither of them tried to push their views, change my mind or influence the process to optimise their benefit at my expense. This is important because one needs to feel that one’s agent is empathetic, honest and working in the interests of all parties (but in particular the vendor).
I was worried about what would happen if my reserve hadn’t been met but on reflection I don’t believe that neither Gilly or Grant would have tried to pressure me to make a rushed and unwise decision. During all the processes, Gilly kept me fully informed and managed that nice balance between effective communication and being intrusive. I prefer to choose somebody I have confidence in and leave them to get on with the task. Gilly excelled. Finally, Gilly meets every challenge with a smile, cheerfulness and is a delight to work with.
I highly recommend her. I’m happy to be contacted if any further information is desired on the phone numbers below.
When I recently decided to put my rental property on the market Gilly Mirkin was the obvious choice to entrust this important transaction with.
With her extensive knowledge and experience in all aspects of the Auckland residential market, Gilly was able to provide me with an appropriate marketing campaign and a recommendation to list the property with an advertised sale price. Within the first week Gilly had identified potential buyers, and the end result was the property was sold and settled within a very short timeframe, with minimal inconvenience to the existing tenant, and achieving the outcome I had hoped for.
I was delighted with the service and advice Gilly provided and have no hesitation in recommending her to any prospective purchaser or vendor.
