To Whom It May Concern

When I was required to sell my family home I interviewed 3 agents in Masterton each from a Nationally renowned Real Estate firm.  I was looking for the right person to effect a speedy and painless sale with professionalism and passion for the product.

From those opportunities Jamie Slater from Harcourts, Masterton stood out as the most committed to do the job. She had commenced investigation of the property from the moment of first phone call and when we met at the house she was knowledgeable, engaged and empathetic to the circumstances of sale.

Jamie was charged with the task of sale and against my initial personal preference I was advised to go to auction.  Jamie had 4 open homes at the property with a high number of prospects attending however there were issues with the house that buyers found to be obstacles to their interest.  She also took numerous buyers through private viewings.  It was not an easy house to bring to a satisfactory sale conclusion.

Jamie’s skill throughout the process involved belief in the property, research over potential buyer obstacles, attaining prices to improve issues so to be prepared for resistance from the buyer and at all times being solution focused.  She never lost sight of the goal to have a quick sale at the best possible price.

The contributing attributes of this agent should be valued by buyers and sellers alike – these include, a genuine desire to find the best solution to a sellers and buyers need, passion, commitment, a delightful smile, an engaging personality and overall a ‘can do’ attitude.  Her professionalism alongside friendliness, honesty and interest was refreshing.  I received frequent phone calls to update me and weekly written reports.

Jamie you will be winning all agent awards regionally and nationally before you know it and Prue keep doing what you do well.

To Whom It May Concern

Well if you are going to sell a house and want a positive outcome may I recommend Jaime? If sold is what you want, she is the lady who will do it. 

In the process of trying to sell my house, I had three (3) supposedly good real estate agents come and do their thing all at different times.  All were thoroughly disappointing in various degrees I might say. It wasn’t until Jaime invited herself into my life with her positive and go-get attitude that it all changed.  I had resigned myself that I was stuck until the day I died; until I met her.

From the start Jaime said she would sell it within six weeks and it happened.  Her positive attitude did not dwell on my property’s shortfalls, which I was completely aware of, but encompassed its possibilities.  She not only brought me one buyer but several offers.  She respected my situation as a cat breeder to always give me as much notice as possible for my peace of mind but also the nerves of my queens and studs coming up to breeding time.

Jaime not only sold my house but gave me the comfort and reinforcement to untangle my mind and move forward.  She is full of advice and encouragement all the way making selling a house quite exciting instead of a worrisome time. Jaime totally respects and listens carefully to you, the client, and works tirelessly for a swift result. 

Give it a go with this lass……………you will not be disappointed.  She is a delight to keep company with and I have gained a friend for life, bless her. 

Sincerely

We listed our monolithically clad house with Jaime Slater of Harcourts Greytown knowing that it was going to be a hard to sell (perception-wise) from the feedback we had received from a previous listing with another estate agent. 

Jaime came up with an excellent plan for a fresh marketing approach which included going to Auction.   We challenged Jaime to get people down our driveway and within the first month of it being presented to the public we had approximately thirty groups of people to look at our home.  

Within six weeks of listing with Jaime we had a conditional offer on our property and although we didn’t go through an auction process we believe it was due to excellent marketing and Jaime’s innovative and imaginative approach that we received a good offer.  Her motto is she “doesn’t do no” and this has proved correct with the eventual sale of our home. 

Max and I thank Jaime and her team at Harcourts Greytown for a very enjoyable process to sell.

Well done Jaime, Anita, and Janet at Harcourts Greytown and enjoy the blackcurrant jam.

 I met Jaime at an open home for a house I was looking to buy. She gave good information, but was professional and not pushy. Her follow-up, however, was diligent and well-timed. I was impressed by her enthusiasm, knowledge, reliability and consistency. I was not convinced I would buy the house we had looked at, but with every approach Jaime was patient, informative and came through with what she promised. And then somehow the house emerged in my mind in its true colours and we decided to make an offer. Jaime quickly handled the negotiations, which turned out to be successful.

When it came to selling my own home, I had assumed I’d list with the agents through whom I bought it eight years earlier. In fact, I had asked them for an appraisal. But then I thought I’d ask Jaime too.

She was extremely efficient and prompt (unlike the other agents who took over a week to come to see me and then another week to give me their assessment). She filled me with confidence, gave me good advice about what I might need to do to make the house as good as it could be, and was friendly and encouraging, without giving me an inflated idea of what I might hope for from the sale.

I decided to go with Jaime, and my house sold within three days of listing it!Jaime was amazingly energetic and encouraging, and helped handle difficult issues involving the council etc. She had an unending list of helpful contacts, too. She provided first-rate service, and I don’t think she could have done better. Her creativity and imagination in the sale of my former home and the purchase of my present one were huge assets as well.

I recommend her very highly – her catchphrase, ‘I don’t do maybe’, sums up part of her approach; the other part is made up of Jaime being an extremely nice person who hopes to do the best for her clients, and succeeds.

Jamie did a great job at selling our house.  Our lifestyle block had been on the market for a while and we had not had that much interest. Jamie managed to get the property marketed to the right people and it was soon sold. Jamie was easy to work with, listened to what we wanted and worked hard to keep everyone happy. She even managed to find us our new house too.

We would definitely recommend her to our friends.

Jamie has always been incredibly efficient in providing me with an honest and practical approach to the properties placement and has taken the initiative to understand our business' process and requirements. Her unwavering enthusiasm and positive outlook is refreshing, that coupled with her professionalism and reliable approach is always welcomed.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Jamie's services.

Paul and I would like to express our sincere thanks for the recent sale of our property - 4 Awhina Drive Greytown.

Seldom do you come across a real estate agent who has the ability to actually sell, is a breath of fresh air and goes the extra mile…Jamie you are one of those rare species.

From the minute you took our listing on – nothing for you was a hassle.For me, you’ve renewed my confidence, for my husband you took the stress out the sales process and for my children, you’ve taken open homes out of their weekends – YAY!I whole-heartedly would recommend Jamie to anyone who is either having trouble selling or is about to list their property for the first time.

Simply put - Jamie… just doesn’t do maybe!

Kindest Regards

Carol, Paul and the Hullah boys!

To Whom It May Concern

We have been very impressed by the professionalism, effort and enthusiasm with which Jaime sold our house in Greytown, and then helped us buy another house, all within one week. One of Jaime’s strengths is that she realises that she has to put the work in and that most houses do not sell themselves.  This approach was very refreshing and we were both surprised and delighted when she found a vendor for our property so quickly. What we also liked was that once an offer had been made, further discussions between vendor/purchaser were made by phone by Jaime, rather than her travelling from one town to another to further negotiate the deal.

In our case, where a number of signatories were required for both the sale and purchase, she made all the arrangements for those individuals to sign the documents.

We would not hesitate to recommend her and just hope that she’s still round when we downsize the next time!

To Jaime

We just wanted to say thank you for all the time and energy you put into helping us find a home in Greytown :). We love the home we are in, and it is a perfect match of my love of character and Cody's wish for a new, low-maintenance home. Thank you for listening to our needs and wants, and for your patience throughout the buying process.

We actually enjoyed house hunting for a change and will definitely be in contact should we wish to sell in the future.

Thank you and all the best,

Amy & Cody "

"We recently purchased a property through Jaime Slater of Harcourts Greytown. We found Jaime's enthusiasm infectious and in no time at all she had negotiated a deal between ourselves and the vendor that was acceptable to both parties. We found her very helpful in obtaining any information that we required and she was very professional in all aspects of the buying process.

 Jaime was a pleasure to do business with and we would highly recommend her to others who are considering buying or selling real estate."
