We had the pleasure of Ange and Pip as our agents. They have truly made the experience of selling a home an enjoyable one! From the start of the campaign to the end they have been there 24/7. They will say they are just doing their job however Ange and Pip have gone above and beyond. They have managed to do so with the highest integrity coupled with having their vendors and buyers best interests at heart – this is hard to come by in any agent. We would highly recommend these two to anyone looking at selling their home!!

I knew Philippa and Angela by walking with my kids while they putted up a sold sticky sign on my neighbour street. After talking with Philippa I am very impressed with the price they sold in my neighbourhood house, so I decided to let them try to sell one of our rental properties. The whole process is very smooth by working with them and how their eyes for detail are just so impress you. Our two level rental house is quite hard to sell among mostly single level house, but they did a great job! After that one sold, we then let them sell another rental property which later set up the new price benchmark for the whole area. We were received many offers in just couple of days, then many back up offers after another week. They even took the hassle away by contacting and chasing up council for us for LIM mistake council made and arrange tenant for viewing and everything, so we can simply just enjoy life but received best result at the end.

Faye and Jack, Riverhead

Philippa and Angela, as a team, were the consummate professionals. They quickly demonstrated through their behaviour and communications that they were working for the vendor and never waivered from that position throughout the campaign.   

More importantly they listened carefully to the vendor requirements but also took the time to explain the market and the intricacies of the property selling process. Their advice was outstanding as was their attention to detail.   

They very quickly gained our confidence and trust. A strong and friendly relationship soon developed that has endured, even after they found the buyers that absolutely fitted our brief. 

As a result of their diligence, patience and persistence the stress of the sale process was completely removed from us and we can recommend them as hardworking and completely honest agents, with complete confidence.

Stephen and Jan Franklin, Greenhithe

A quick shout out to our excellent real estate agents Ange & Pip who just sold our house in Hobsonville Point. It can be hard to know who to choose, but we have no hesitation in recommending this great local team to anyone looking to sell around here. They are consummate professionals with real integrity, and offer a friendly and personalised service. Thanks team.

Max Hardy and Arena Williams, Hobsonville Point

If you want to buy real estate you need to speak to these two incredible women! They have made purchasing my new home such a stress-free experience! The care and professionalism that they exhibited puts others to shame! If you are buying property and not using these two ladies you are missing out!

Ptrece Gosney, Hobsonville Point

Pip and Ange were a dream to work with! We put our house on the market just before lockdown which meant no walk throughs and no auction as planned! Ange and Pip kept us informed as the levels were changing and towards the end we were able to do a few walk throughs and sell very quickly after! Thank you so much for helping us as first home sellers – You both made the experience so much easier and more enjoyable.

Jemma Franks, Hobsonville

Ange & Pip did an amazing job in times that have been extremely difficult. After COVID-19 hit NZ and the whole industry came to an unexpected stop, they managed to keep the wheels turning & lined up everything possible so I could settle & move. I have bought & sold 3 houses, as well as one in Germany, & this was the best customer service I have ever experienced. I can only recommend these agents! They go the extra mile…and more. Even after settlement & the move, they keep contacting & supporting me to make sure everything is well. Thank you so much Ange & Pip – you rock!

Dirk, Hobsonville

Pip & Ange were great to deal with, made the process easy, had an excellent marketing & auction campaign which resulted in a fantastic outcome.

Jess & Al, Greenhithe

Angela arranged and assisted me to purchase a home in West Harbour in March 2015. She and Pip sold that home for me in February this year. As a team, they suggested, recommended and often assisted me to prepare my home for sale, including the auction and relatively quick post-auction sale. Open Homes were conducted with minimal bother for me and maximum welcome for all prospective purchasers. When the sale was completed I felt that all that could have been done, had been and we had achieved a very nice friendship. As soon as I am able, they will be looking for a new home for me.

Peter Christian, West Harbour

Angela & Philippa explained everything to us very clearly, answered all our questions honestly. We were pleased how they checked in with us regularly and looked after us throughout the whole process. We would highly recommend working with Angela & Philippa – their professionalism was outstanding.

Greg & Angela, Greenhithe

Angela and Philippa were recommended to us by friends – and we are so pleased they did! As first time sellers, we were inexperienced with the market from the selling side and from our first meeting Ange and Pip helped settle our nerves. No question was too much, and they went above and beyond to help the whole process go smoothly, from listing to staging, and then to selling with a great price at auction.

Because we had moved out before the house went on the market, they even looked after our plants!

Highly recommended and we will definitely be contacting Ange and Pip next time we need property assistance.

Krystle & Ashleigh Thomas, Massey

Many thanks to Ange and Pip for the sale of our home, where we had lived for the last 17 years.

Gayle and I were both pleased and impressed with how they presented our house, and with the professional manner with which they initially proposed the marketing package which led to the ultimate Auction sale.

Throughout the campaign they were constantly in touch, reassuring us, and reporting back on open homes and people through.

Having been in Real Estate myself some time ago, I appreciate the behind-the-scenes work that goes into a successful sale, for this I thank the team – Angela and Philippa – and wish them further success in Greenhithe.

Chris and Gayle Doel, Greenhithe

What a magnificent effort you put in to secure the sale of our house at a very tough time in the market in June 2019.

You worked tirelessly, and often outside your role as a real estate agent. We would highly recommend you to anyone wanting a competent, energetic and friendly agent. The two of us are so glad that Maree Gray of Harcourts Milford, directed us your way.

Best wishes and thank you heaps.

J & L Bell, Greenhithe

The Agents Ange and Pip were extremely helpful and sincere and genuinely seemed to care about all parties involved. They made the whole process very easy for us as buyers even though ultimately they worked for the sellers. Ange and Pip were both very helpful and made sure the process was easy for all parties. They both seemed to be very trustworthy and professional.

Joshua Barrack & Kezia Ringer, Massey

We recently used Ange and Pip to sell our house and would have no hesitation in recommending them. We found them to be extremely professional, knowledgeable, friendly and excellent communicators. They were always happy to take on board our feedback and strived to keep us satisfied. Thanks again ladies for achieving a great result.

Ben & Sarah Armour, Hobsonville Point

We met Philippa and Angela whilst looking to buy in Greenhithe. We were so impressed with their approach to us as buyers that we requested them to market our home in Hobsonville Point. Their professionalism and communication with us every step of the way has been outstanding. We have bought and sold 7 homes, all with different agents, over several years and we can honestly say that these two ladies are the best real estate agents we have ever dealt with! We highly recommend them!!

Kevin & Cheryl Hundley, Hobsonville Point

We engaged Angela Tobin to sell our house in Greenhithe, and found her to be a very professional and well organised agent. After signing the listing and wanting to take our house to auction, we were supplied with a plan of action, which we were happy to accept.
From that point on, Angela was extremely good at keeping us in the loop, and her communication in general, was exceptional.
Angela worked tirelessly over the period that we were on the market, and at no point did we ever feel that there was any more she could have done to market our home. Angela calls a spade a spade, and does not sugar coat anything, which meant we were completely aware of all feedback from buyers who had been shown through the house.
I would have no problem recommending Angela to other people considering selling their home. The whole process was enjoyable, and as stress free as selling your biggest asset could be.

M & S Penniall, Greenhithe

I was recently Executor of a deceased estate where we engaged Philippa to sell the property. I have nothing but praise for Philippa. Her advice and management of the campaign was great. Nothing was too difficult and I really believe she had our (vendor) best interests front and centre!
Thanks Philippa!

Dan Ostwind, Greenhithe

As we were first home sellers we were completely new to the process. We had decided to relocate out of the Auckland area and were working to a very tight timeframe. When we had our first meeting with Philippa we immediately felt at ease. Philippa explained everything to us very clearly, answered all our questions and gained our complete trust. We loved how she checked in with us regularly and looked after us throughout the whole process. We would highly recommend working with Philippa and the Harcourts team, her professionalism was outstanding. We would not hesitate to work with her again in the future.

Vanessa & Mike, Hobsonville Point

Angela Tobin was our agent from Harcourts we used for the sale of our house. We preferred to go with one agency that appeared to be the most successful in our area. Harcourts had sold most of the houses in our street in the past year and Angela was the agent in at least one sale we knew of.
Angela demonstrated understanding of the market and provided us with strategic and tactical inputs to allow us to make better calls on our approach to market. Whilst the market was bullish from a vendor point of view, Angela was also good at networking the opportunity within the greater Harcourts and other agencies when we discussed the option.
Angela has shown great professionalism and we would not hesitate to recommend her for the selling of your house.

M & L Prins

We recently had the pleasure of working with Philippa Edgar (The Art of Real Estate) to sell a property of ours in Greenhithe. We found the sale process from start to finish to be seamless which was particularly important given that we were selling from overseas. Philippa’s ability to manage all areas from getting the house ready for sale, arranging staging, and the compilation of marketing portfolio was highly professional. We were kept well informed of the selling process stage by stage which was reassuring and provided great peace of mind.
The end result was a sale price well beyond what we could have hoped for. Although the market dictates to some extent, having the right Sales Agent is pivotal to a successful and stressfree sale. We highly recommend Philippa.

Sarndra & Peter, Greenhithe

We’d like to extend a huge, warm thank you to Angela who helped us secure our beautiful family home in the location of our dreams! We had been on the hunt for the perfect home for nearly 9 months and we had experienced agents who did not listen our needs, weren’t being honest with us and (who we felt) didn’t appreciate the seriousness of such a huge financial decision.
When we met Angela at our now new home (yay!), not only did we love the house but we immediately felt comfortable with the agent. We knew this house was a keeper, so we wanted to act quickly and put our best offer forward. Bridget respected our wishes, understood what we needed and for once we felt as though we had an agent that cared for both the vendor and the purchaser. She was friendly, honest and worked hard for us to secure our new home. She kept us fully updated the entire time and always made herself available for the many questions we had! She honestly made the very stressful, emotional ride that much easier and I would not hesitate to recommend her for anyone in the area looking for a down-to-earth, honest, no-nonsense agent. THANK YOU!

From the Slade family

We have recently sold our home in Greenhithe. We approached Angela Tobin of Harcourts, Greenhithe, to handle the sale and marketing of our home where we have lived for the past 43 years.
From the first meeting Angela handled the process very professionally and always with a bright smile and friendly manner. We were given a full explanation following the appraisal of the property, as well as the different ways in which the sale could be handled.
Angela’s help in preparing the house for viewings and the open homes was really wonderful. At no time was she intrusive and always treated us with respect. The security of our home was never an issue as Angela was meticulous and always closed windows, turned off lights, locked doors and activated the alarm.
The final negotiations were again handled in a professional manner and at no time did we feel pressured to accept an offer that we were unhappy with. We were always confident of her support.
We would have no hesitation in recommending her to handle any property sale.

T & C Strong

After 31 years of living in Greenhithe, we finally made a decision to sell. We met numerous agents from other Real Estate, but once we got to know Angela Tobin from Harcourts – Greenhithe, we were convinced she was the one to sell our home. She explained to us the different methods we could use to put our home on the market, she worked diligently and was very professional and kept us up to date daily with every important detail.
We were very satisfied with the results of her program that she advised us to use, with a very satisfactory outcome. Everything went very smoothly, and our house was sold in a very short time.
We can highly recommend Angela as a very professional agent and delightful person to deal with.

B & C Brodie, Greenhithe

Thank you kindly for your lovely gift Philippa, we really feel it is you who should be on the receiving end.
Against our better judgement we accepted your advice and guidance and took a different road to a great result, thank you.
We must tell you, you are one of the Worlds Great Treasures and a lovely person with a charming sense of humour to boot. Your short experience in the career you have chosen is not reflected in the integrity and professionalism you have shown.
We wish you great, and on going, success.

Myra & David Jonkers

I’m writing to thank you for selling what was my first home, in Greenhithe, North Shore, Auckland. For my first time selling a property, I wanted somebody knowledgeable, honest, and professional to guide me through the process. You were all that and more! Not only did you sell my home very quickly, you kept in touch with me at all times of the process.
My home was marketed well and thanks to you living in area, resulted in plenty of interest in the property. I appreciated being kept informed of discussions with interested buyers and especially grateful to you for coming over whenever required, even after usual business hours.
I have no hesitation in recommending you to my friends, family and any other potential sellers.

K Greenlees

It is my pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Mrs Angela Tobin of Harcourts Greenhithe.
We listed our home with Harcourts giving Greenhithe Branch sole agency to market and sell our property. Throughout all transactions and negotiations Angela has been professional, friendly and supportive. She has offered advice when needed, kept us up to date with progress and guided us through the quick and efficient sale of our home. Angela definitely made the whole experience a happy one, and as smooth as possible and with the least amount of stress. We would have no hesitation in recommending her as an excellent real estate agent to anyone wishing to sell their home.

T Alderson

True to her word, Angela diligently executed each component of our sales campaign, which resulted in a strong presence at our auction and ultimately the successful sale of our much loved home! So, thank you Angela for your professional advice and support through the daunting auction process. We believe that you did everything you could to help us achieve the best possible outcome for our sale (which is what the auction process is all about)…much appreciated!

T & J Winters

Our house was a difficult house to sell and Philippa did a fantastic job for months and months preparing and attending open homes and probably doing much more then we realised because we no longer lived in Greenhithe. We found her easy to communicate with, always flexible and willing to go the extra mile for us. And when she sold our house she travelled an hour and half to present us with a delightful gift.
Thank you Philippa!

Rose Wilkinson

Angela Tobin was really helpful in talking us through each of the steps of selling our property and in fact we ended up selling in only 5 days due to her excellent skills! She let us make the decisions, but always provided options to work best for your situation, so you are fully in control of what works best for you. You feel fully informed on all the choices available to you. She is quick, efficient and responsive in all her communications. As a seller based overseas, she really went above and beyond to ensure all of the details were taken care of. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

V Jenner

I recently had the pleasure of selling my home where Angela was my agent.
It was lovely to have an agent who was so trustworthy. I had no worries at all as regards her having a key to the house and she was always so careful at ensuring that the house was exactly as she found it at the end of viewings by clients.
Angela was reliable at keeping appointments and considerate in arranging times for meetings and viewings.
Her communication was thorough and professional. She was clear about disclosing issues and showed integrity when liaising between potential purchasers and myself.
She worked hard at exploring all avenues for attracting clients to view the property and often went the extra mile.
All in all Angela was excellent to work with and we were very pleased at the successful outcome.

G Ruffles

In a heated Auckland property market we were actively seeking to buy a rental property. Angela worked closely with us, in a no pressure way bringing different properties to our attention and attending auctions with us in support until we finally made a purchase. Always happy to help and did so in a friendly manner. Thanks Angela

A & P Webster

Philippa Edgar worked tirelessly to sell my beautiful property in Greenhithe. She is a lady with integrity and did a marvellous job of listening to my needs as a seller. I would not hesitate to recommend Philippa’s services as an agent due to her abilities and genuine kindness. I was nervous about the sale process, due to the years I had spent residing at my property, but Philippa spent a lot of time reassuring me and talking me through the process. Harcourts should be proud of Philippa and I thank her sincerely for all she did for me.

T. Locke, formerly of 29 Oscar Road, Greenhithe

Angela has been a delight to work with in our recent Real Estate adventures. Right from when we were looking for a site through to selling our home. The thing we really like about Angela is that when she says she will do something, she does it. When there is some news, she gets to the bottom of it and reports back. When there is a meeting, she texts a reminder. Can’t beat the communication without it being imposing. Even on the day of settlement when we left a wrong key behind, Angela was around to the house in a flash and swapped the keys, even though she was having a busy day. Thanks.

D & A Grubb

One word describes Philippa Edgar: “integrity”.​
It’s a rare word in Real Estate.
Philippa took up the challenge of selling my house … in two weeks … over Christmas and New Year … in a falling market … with energy, professionalism and aplomb.
She gave great advice, campaigned hard and got me the result I needed.
I would absolutely recommend Philippa to anyone selling their property.

Jo Lawrence-King, Hobsonville

Angela is a superb real estate professional. I felt I could trust her from the beginning with complete honesty and transparency, qualities not often familiar to Real Estate!
Purchasing a significant property through Angela seemed easy and enjoyable. This was all down to her hard work, helpful friendly nature, and positive attitude throughout the process. Angela goes beyond her role to ensure all parties are considered.
My next purchase will start with a phone call to Angela to get the ball rolling in such good hands!
Thanks so much Angela!

D Philipps

Philippa helped us to find the right home much faster than we had anticipated. Just over a few little chats she precisely understood our needs and likes, then walked us through from home visits to transaction handover with great responsiveness, patience and communication skills. In some sense she took some stress away from us who are first home buyers and basically new comers to New Zealand. Highly appreciated!

Ivy Lu

We recently sold our rental property with Harcourts and were very impressed with our agents Angela Tobin. Her suggestions on how to present the home for sale was invaluable. She truly went the extra mile, too many small details to mention but as an example – watering the garden. We were kept informed every step, had clear and open discussion regarding our obligations and the costs, no hidden surprises. At all times Angela was approachable, knowledgeable, professional and friendly.
It was a hectic time as we hadn’t expected our tenant to leave quite so soon. In the final week we had the carpet installed, Wednesday – photographer, Thursday – on the market, Friday – open home, Sunday!
The home was on the market on 22 days from first advertised to settlement. We were thrilled with the quick turnaround which I am convinced was the practical advice, great marketing and commitment of our agent. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to our friends and acquaintances and anyone selling their property.

D & K Carr

I would like to say thank you for all your help during the sale of our house in Greenhithe. From the first moment we contacted you, your professionalism and pro-activeness stood out which made the decision to sell our property via you much easier and the right choice.
Nothing was ever a problem and your cheerful nature made you and the team a pleasure to deal with. We always felt prepared and informed with sound practical advice at all stages of the marketing process and it completed without a hitch. Communications with 3rd parties was excellent and resulted in the house and grounds being presented in the best way. Selecting the house dresser and auctioneer was a good move as both were excellent operators. I thoroughly recommend you with Harcourts and would not hesitate in using your services again.
Many Thanks for all your help.

M & C Conboy

We have dealt with Philippa on two occasions now, once with the sale of our sons’ home in Hobsonville Point and very recently with the sale of our own home in Hobsonville. We were so impressed with the way Philippa always gave us updates on how the property was tracking and constant feedback from buyers viewing the property. Philippa dealt with the selling of our house from start to finish professionally and positively and made us feel calm and assured that we had the best team working on the sale of our house in a very uncertain time in the market. We had a fantastic outcome that we believe would not have been the case had it not been for Philippa’s attention to detail and marketing expertise. We would not hesitate to recommend Philippa to anyone selling their home that wants an honest and hardworking agent.
Philippa walked into our house as an agent and left as our friend.

Tony & Deb Wilson, Hobsonville

Thanks so much Philippa and Harcourts Greenhithe for all your support through the journey of our house sale, from when we first sought your advice in preparation to sell, right through to successfully selling our beautiful home. It was a huge process for us, one we feel you truly shared with us, your patience and guidance through it all was immense. We would have you sell our next house without a doubt.

Julie and James Hislop

We used Philippa to sell our house and were very much impressed with her ideas, structure and eagerness to sell our house. We learnt that patience = success and ended up with a great outcome.
Philippa was not at all pushy and we made all the decisions on the marketing structure and price we wanted to list at. At no point in time did we feel we had to hurry into a decision we may have regretted.
We appreciated Philippa’s friendliness, professionalism and helpfulness throughout the sale of our property. We would have no hesitation in recommending Philippa in selling your house.

Fleur & Chris Wallace

Philippa assisted us recently with the sale of our house. I can not recommend her highly enough. She was at all times thoroughly professional, helpful and above all, understanding of the stresses that are inevitably part of shifting house. Philippa’s artistic flair and eye for detail was evident in the way she presented the house for the photographer and for every open home. Her advice was timely, valuable and much appreciated. When we were out of town she went to extra lengths to ensure that we could receive and return contracts even in remote locations with limited internet access. She has made the sale of our house as easy as possible and indeed has mastered the art of real estate!

Jeanette & Ryno Verster, Greenhithe

My brother and I recently listed and sold a property with Philippa.
From our first meeting with Philippa we found that she was someone with integrity and definitely someone who we could trust to complete our property sale with our best interests in mind. Philippa explained the various processes of bringing a property to the market and with her sound advice we sold unconditionally in 8 weeks. This was due to Philippa’s professional manner during scheduled open homes over that initial selling period and her follow up procedure with us, and prospective purchasers.
We would like to thank Philippa very much for her professional diligence which resulted in the sale of our property, her attention to detail and her genuine caring approach which was helpful during some stressful moments which can be present when selling, or indeed buying property!

Shay Stevens & William Duxbury

Philippa played a crucial role in getting us a great result at auction only 9 days after our property went on the market. She was always friendly and professional to deal with and I appreciated her honest and straightforward advice. She went above and beyond the call of duty to help us get our home ready for open day with genuine enthusiasm. I am very grateful to her for making an otherwise difficult time so incredibly easy.

Wayne Hancock

Philippa sold our home in September 2015.
From the very start we were impressed with her enthusiasm and vision of how our home should be marketed. She immediately gained our trust with her open and honest communication. We shared many laughs together and experienced the most low-stress sale we have had – and we’ve sold a few! Philippa’s choice of Marshall Zhang as auctioneer was absolutely perfect, and they worked brilliantly as a team on auction day, achieving a very satisfactory result.
Thanks Philippa for your professional and caring approach to real estate.
We look forward to working with you again in
the future.

Garnett & Vicki Munro, Greenhithe
