Robyn was excellent to deal with. She is extremely professional, confident, and genuine. She instils confidence and makes you feel like you have control of your house sale by steering you gently in the right direction. We felt we could trust her with our beloved house, to achieve the best possible sale to another family. She did this efficiently within a few short weeks.
She is a warm, and friendly person with a great sense of style, and a lovely reassuring manner. We would highly recommend Robyn to anyone considering selling their home.
Robyn worked tirelessly to ensure we achieved a fantastic auction result.
Robyn’s ability to connect with potential buyers was evident the first time we met her. Robyn was confident she would have great success in selling our apartment and achieved what she set out to do. Robyn is warm yet professional and her ability to connect with potential buyers sets her apart from other agents.
Robyn showed outstanding judgement throughout our sale and went above and beyond our expectations to provide potential buyers with the information they required, whilst being very personable and easy to deal with.
I have no hesitation recommending Robyn. In fact, I would go so far as to insist you take on Robyn as your agent!
We just wanted to say what a fantastic experience it has been for us to work with Robyn and Jamie over the past few weeks. Having bought and sold 5 houses we've had all sorts of experiences and Robyn and Jamie have been second to none.
Professional, passionate, and focused on getting us the best possible price, Jamie and Robyn well and truly surpassed our expectations in terms of the work done during the process and the outcome. We thought the weekly written reports were great and the way that they communicated with us as well as the potential purchasers in the lead up to the auction was fantastic.
They were friendly and engaging throughout and guided us whilst respecting our wishes at all times. We would hire them again in a heartbeat.
In a highly competitive market, we chose Robyn Ellson to sell our house as we were really impressed with her local knowledge, experience and her understanding of the current market. Robyn gave us great advice on how to maximise our home's potential. Robyn was committed to getting us the best sale price possible and worked tirelessly to achieve this for us. We would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking to sell their house.
Robyn from Custom Residential was my first choice because of how proactive I find her to be. Selling not one but two houses in Rocky Nook Avenue took a lot of hard work and energy that Robyn provides in spades. The results speak for themselves. Robyn produced two happy buyers which left me a happy vendor. I could not recommend any other agent more highly. Thanks again Robyn!

Robyn, I really appreciated your high standards. Your presentation of my property was exceptional - the best I have ever seen in this bracket. Thank-you for an exceptional result, and in record time too!
Who will you get to sell your house?
Do you want a tip from me?
Robyn’s the one I’d recommend
To sell your property!
She’s excited by the challenge
She turns drudgery into fun
When she rungs her eye over your house
Who knows what it will become!
Going way beyond what I expected
She took my old rental in hand
And knowing what the market rejected
She organized cleaning and work, as we planned
When it was polished and gleaming
She filled it with flowers and fronds
With style and fashion and vision
She transformed “a lame duck” to a “swan”!
She styled the house with mirror
With candles and sofas and art
So that all who crossed the threshold
Knew that this was a house with a heart
She networked in the local community
With enthusiasm, passion and style
Attentive to detail and available
Always ready to go the next mile
As an owner she gave me good measure
With feedback and phone calls overseas
I relaxed and enjoyed a good holiday
Knowing Robyn was safe with the keys!
She left nothing to chance in her dealings
To the purchasers she extended her aid
She gave them access for quotes and new tenants
Well after their deal was made
And the deal was made in heaven
Nine hundred and fifty to bank
And the bidders were smiling and happy
Which left only Robyn to thank
So if you are wanting an agent
Hardworking, creative and fun
Take my word and choose Robyn
Before long, you’ll find the job done!

Thanks Robyn, Clive and I have been impressed with your professionalism, enthusiasm and regular communications throughout our listing and marketing process. The price we received for Bright St was beyond our expectations, but it is your handling of the sale that we most appreciate.
Feeling dubious about using an agent because of cost we were going to attempt to sell our property ourselves. After meeting Robyn and being impressed with her knowledge of the neighbourhood, her energy, motivation and creativity we didn't look back. Robyn was worth every penny, is hard working, sold our house in less than a week and got us a very good price.
As first time home sellers she supported us through what is an overwhelming process and reassured us with her confidence and professionalism. We couldn't have done it without her.
We recommend Robyn to everyone - all agents should be like this.
Robyn explored every option possible for the sale of my ex-rental property in Kingsland. Unbeknownst to me the property had been poorly managed by my property manager for several years and the house had gotten into bad shape.
Before going to sale, Robyn sat down with me and explored every option to achieve the best outcome, whether to spend some money on fixing the property up or selling as is. After much consideration and her monitoring the market temperature towards do-up opportunities, we decided to bite the bullet and sell the home as is.
Robyn gave me regular updates over the course of the campaign and was prepared to adapt the strategy to suit market conditions. After the first weekend of open homes, she advised me to change my strategy to an auction campaign. I was initially against the idea, but she explained the reasoning behind it well. The auction enabled us to add some urgency from our side and push interested parties to either put in a pre-auction offer or wait and see what the market would pay on auction day.
As it happened we received a pre-auction offer that sealed the deal and I am now able to move onto my next project. Honesty, high integrity and complete dedication to getting my property sold, Robyn never drifted from the task at hand when things got tough… She just got stuck in and closed the deal. I wouldn’t use any other agent.
When we first met Robyn we were slightly dubious as to how successful she might be at trying to sell our property. But as she was willing to work within our stringent requirements (10 days to achieve a sale with no marketing budget) we were willing to give her a shot. Needless to say we were quite surprised to find her presenting an offer just shy of our dream figure some 24 hours later. We're experience developers in the property game and we know the mark of a good agent. Persistence, tenacity and stealth negotiation is what's required. She might look sweet, but she's certainly no push over when it comes to achieving a top sale result for her vendors. Highly recommend.
Buying our first home was so daunting, all the paper work and buyers jargon was enough to keep us renting for the rest of our lives!! Robyn took care of these elements for us and we simply had to ready our finances. Robyn, being of a first buyers age bracket understands and sympathises with the huge financial decision this has on a young couple. I’d recommend her to anyone looking to buy their first home in Auckland.
We had been looking in the area for a while with a view to buying our first home. We had made an offer on another property a month or two previously but the deal fell over, partly we felt due to a lack of adequate follow up from the agent managing the sale. I was surprised to find out later that this property still hadn't sold and had since been taken off the market.
Robyn couldn't be more different an agent. Proactive, she rang us the same day we'd viewed another property in the area to find out exactly what we were looking for and then told us about another property she'd listed just that day that seemed to match our criteria. As it turned out it was exactly what we were looking for and she worked hard to make it happen for us. She took our offer that day and three days later the salewent unconditional. It couldn’t have been easier and we’d recommend her to anyone serious about selling their home.
The process of selling your house is overwhelming at the best of times, so understandably when we were choosing an agent to represent our best interests; we took this process very seriously. We met with several agents and they all delivered their best speeches, promising the greatest of intentions, but what made Robyn and Custom Residential stand out from the crowd was Robyn’s ability to listen and cater to our situation and her spirited enthusiasm for Eden Terrace.
Living at the opposite end of the country meant we needed total faith in our agent and Robyn instilled this from day one.
Robyn’s knowledge on the area is impressive and her motivation is second to none. Adding this to Custom Residential’s impeccable, first class marketing campaign makes a winning combination.
We were confident we would get a result with Robyn’s help, but we were pleasantly surprised with the quick, favorable results she was able to produce. In one week, with one open home and strategic marketing we had an offer that quickly became unconditional.
Robyn made the whole process effortless. Always happy to talk and share a laugh but equally at home with the sensitive serious matters.
Without hesitation, we recommend Robyn and Custom Residential to all prospective buyers and sellers in the Eden Terrace / city suburbs area.
