Client Testimonials

I decided to make a major change in my life and sell my two smaller properties in favour of a larger home.  I was very anxious about the marketing process and unsure of my decision. I met Joan at an open home and, impressed by her friendly and professional manner, asked her to appraise my properties.  Two years passed before I was finally ready to sell. Joan kept in touch throughout that time offering unbiased and helpful advice with no pressure to sell.  She sold both my properties within 3 weeks of listing at top market prices.  I felt very supported and respected before, during and after the sales process.  Joan is a very professional, capable, hard working, ethical and experienced Real Estate agent of the highest calibre.  I’m very pleased with her services and would recommend to her anyone buying or selling property in the North Shore market.

Joan Barton of Bayley’s Takapuna sold our house for us in March 2021 and got an amazing result for us. Joan was the best agent we could ask for. Joan explained the whole process to us, communicated with us was through the whole process and kept us up to date with what the market was saying. Joan is a great person to deal with and we felt that we could absolutely rely on Joan to get the best result for us and she did in a very managed and professional way. We would highly recommend Joan to sell your house !

Kay and I have known Joan for about 20 years. We are not sure when we first met her but she has always been very helpful, honest and friendly.
Her first mission with us was to find us another home in the bays area. In those days she would pick us up in her car and drive us around. As we had a big dog nothing suitable for us was found. We ended up building in Devonport.
In 2015 we asked Joan to sell our home in Milford. She was able to get a very pleasing result at an auction for the sale of our house. In fact our neighbours were so surprised at the price we got that they accused us of being greedy. The excellent price was only due to Joan's diligence, tenacity and professionalism. Last year Joan was the sole agent for the sale of my mother's house in Devonport. This sale was a difficult one for Joan because of personal circumstances involving my mother, sister (who is in South Africa) and my mother's Eternal Power of Attorneys. Despite all these hurdles Joan was able to get a result of nearly  $600,000 above the top CV for this property. In fact, the result was so successful that an article about the sale was published in the NZ Herald. These two examples of Joan's high standards exemplify that she has kept both the customer and her employer very satisfied. We cannot speak more highly about Joan and we will always value her as a true friend and welcome guest. And finally her dress and bearing are always immaculate and cannot be faulted.
