Probably one of the biggest complaints about salespeople from sellers is, "we don't know what's going on with our property, we never hear from the agent!"

How can you be a decisive seller if you don't know what's going on in the sales process? Supplying feedback to you as a seller is one of the best ways to improve the probability of achieving the best possible price for your property, and avoid underselling.

Part of my personal philosophy and working method is to keep the vendor informed and included in the sales process at all times. There's no such thing as a "secret agent" as far as I'm concerned.

Another major consideration is the availability of accurate information. How often do you as a buyer email or call a salesperson and the enquiry goes unanswered or ignored? Unbelievable to think that this happens but it does.

My first question to you as a buyer is "what's attracted you to this particular property"? It’s a great qualifier and helps us both define your search a little more.

Particularly with body corporates, sometimes pending litigation and often complicated body corporate issues regularly in a state of flux, the seller must know that we have their best interests at heart at all times.

Explaining such complex issues to buyers, demystifies, educates and helps those buyers commit to effective purchase.

I have 12 years experience in the Auckland apartment market and have achieved successful sales from $31,000 to $1.5 million. I am familiar with Hotel and "zero rated" purchasers, leasehold, freehold, owner/occupier and investment property’s, leaky building syndrome and of course, leaking leasehold properties.

I know how to attract the right buyer for your property to achieve the best possible price.

Dan and Gabrielle

We just want to say that you achieved an outstanding result yesterday in the sale of our apartment. This is the second time you've done this for me, breaking records. Gabrielle and I know that this result is due entirely to your own hard work, and your knowledge of this market. There was no unnecessary or expensive advertising, but what you did went right to the heart of the buying group for this property. You explored every angle, learned everything that needed to be known, and you always had the answers to the buyers' questions. One doesn't always see that level of commitment. You haven't asked us for this email, but want you to know how we feel. After the sale of my apartment a few years ago, I wanted only you to handle this one. Our faith in you has been fully justified. We would not hesitate to come to you again, and you can tell that to anybody, show them this if you want to. With our grateful thanks.

We were so close to not having the pleasure of meeting Dominic and having him involved in selling two apartments in Auckland city. We had previously followed up on ‘mail drops’ from real estate agents and not hearing from them again. Not so with Dominic - From the very moment of our first phone conversation he never waivered from start to finish. His enthusiasm, energy & integrity is outstanding and certainly unquestionable. He constantly kept us informed as to what was happening and we trusted his judgement totally. Once again Dominic – thanks so much for everything. We really appreciated your involvement in the whole process. We certainly would recommend Dominic to prospective sellers or buyers.

I don’t think it gets much trickier than selling an apartment that is on leased land and has possible water issues, and to go through this process with integrity; ensuring that the next buyer understands the situation and that the outcome also supports top results for me the seller. Thank you Dominic for helping me close the door on a chapter of my life that has been stressful, I just wish that I had started this process sooner with you. I have no hesitation in recommending Dominic as a real estate agent for anyone in need of a great sell.

Graham and Esther Ferry

We are of course delighted with the outcome (and note the well-earned kudos and marketing impetus you will gain from that!). However, regardless of the outcome, we wanted to express our gratitude and our appreciation of the professionalism, ethics and hard work that you put into the project. We were fairly tentative when you first came to visit and convince us of the best way forward, but were immediately impressed with your obvious experience and knowledge of the market. We saw too, a very honest and open approach, which has continued to be evident through your dealings with us. You said what you were going to do, you did it (despite the pressures and stresses involved in the process), and for us the outcome was great. Thanks so much… As a footnote, we must add that, despite our natural anxieties, we did have an unseen advantage. We have a strong and personal Christian faith, and we firmly believe that God was at work on our behalf. Again, our heartfelt thanks Dominic. We are more than happy for you to use our comments for future marketing and would not hesitate to recommend you to others.

Peter and Antoinette Whitehead

Just a short note to express our gratitude for your hard work and guidance throughout the auction process. We were exceptionally pleased with the outcome. This is our first experience in marketing real estate by auction and you made it straightforward and enjoyable for us to participate. What we take from the experience in particular is that it was quick, highly efficient and most thankfully void of the traditional bartering as we did not come into contact with any potential buyers. What we would like to pass onto any future sellers is that this is a process that requires substantial skill and experience from both the realtor and auctioneer. Listen to Dominic’s advice, particularly on the day before the auction, he has the know-how to get the buyers motivated. Most importantly he will be will with you every step of the way - from start to finish. Well done Dom. You’re an honest guy with plenty of integrity and you know your job.

Jason Lin

Dominic is very good and very helpful

Brilliant performance in planning marketing strategy and the way he approaches all parties involved in a deal! Thank you, Dominic! Hope to meet you in that famous corner pub on Queen Str in the near future

Just a brief note to say a big thank you for your great efforts in selling our apartment. We are of course delighted with the outcome (and note the well-earned kudos and marketing impetus you will gain from that!). However, regardless of the outcome, we wanted to express our gratitude and our appreciation of the professionalism, ethics and hard work that you put into the project.

Thanks so much… As a footnote, we must add that, despite our natural anxieties, we did have an unseen advantage. We have a strong and personal Christian faith, and we firmly believe that God was at work on our behalf. Furthermore, he sent us the right agent, one Dominic (whose name means “Lord” - we had to chuckle at that!) as his co-worker and guiding angel! Again, our heartfelt thanks Dominic. We are more than happy for you to use our comments for future marketing and would not hesitate to recommend you to others.

It’s with pleasure and a side order of relief that I am writing this reference for Dominic because he has helped me through a difficult property sell. I don’t think it gets much trickier than selling an apartment that is on leased land and has possible water issues, and to go through this process with integrity; ensuring that the next buyer understands the situation and that the outcome also supports top results for me the seller. What did I learn? • That it’s okay to have faith and trust in a real estate agent who has conviction backed by years of experience. • That Dominic is an agent who stands by doing everything above board and that he would do so while supporting the buyer’s best outcomes. • That I would receive regular detail reports of where we were at, online views of the apartment (local and international) and feedback from open days; direct quotes from people viewing the location. • I learnt that I had options I wasn’t even aware of and that Dominic ultimately would give me advice that resulted in a great conclusion. I honestly didn’t think it would sell let alone at the price it went for. Thank you Dominic for helping me close the door on a chapter of my life that has been stressful, I just wish that I had started this process sooner with you. I have no hesitation in recommending Dominic as a real estate agent for anyone in need of a great sell.

Mike and Amanda Leng

We got there !! As you will be aware we awoke this morning to find emails confirming that the settlement from the sale of our unit had taken place. We just wanted to write and say thank you so much for assisting us with the sale in such a timely and efficient manner and delivering an outstanding end result that far exceeded our expectations ! Being overseas, we were not looking forward to the process but after engaging you to act on our behalf we felt confident that we were in good hands, that all would run smoothly and most importantly that we would achieve a sale. We always felt well informed and were happy to be guided by you in your friendly and honest, yet professional, manner. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to others - you have done a superb job and we are very grateful !

Crates Investments Limited

We felt the whole process was very professional. We were kept very well informed throughout.The end result was not as good as we had hoped or had come to expect through the process and for what ever reason the auction price did not reach expectations or the pre auction offer of $270,000.Sometimes auction is not the best vehicle if the right people are not attracted to or chose not to use that vehicle.Kind Regards Ron & Val

Edhouse Investments Limited

We have had a thoroughly professional and successful relationship with Dom

Michael & Richard Leng

Very friendly professional service thank you

He is articulate and genuine communicator. He has the ability to provide options based on his experiences and to communicate consistently using face to face, texting and internet. You feel that he is consistently doing all that he can do to achieve best outcomes.

Montim Investments Limited

Twice now he has delivered what he said he would and what we dared dream might be possible. We love his enthusiasm and passion. I would have no hesitation in using his expertise again.

G E F Properties Limited

We were very impressed with Dominic's deeply ethical approach and his profound knowledge of the market and the dynamics of the auctioning process. He was totally up front in all his dealings with us, he outlined his plan of action, dealt with our apprehensions, communicated constantly throughout the process, and in the end delivered more than was promised. Couldn't be happier.

Shu-Huei Chang Hsu

Worked very hard. Always updated us about whats going on. Helping us sell the property as if it were his own, so thinks for us on our behalf and also uses good strategies for marketing. Very trustworthy man. Felt like when we were uncertain about something, we could freely ask him and recieve good solution/advice from him.

Stuart Munro

He was in contact with us the entire way thru, and explained things we were not sure about in detail.

Idham Karim & Musarrat Begum- Auckland City

If you are thinking of buying or selling a property, we would highly recommend Dominic Worthington of Chas Realty. Dominic specialises in sales by Auction and has helped us sell our property in Auckland city recently. We had contemplated selling the property for a long time, but Dominic helped us achieve that goal within a month! Dominic was so confident that the property would sell on auction day that it didn't take us long to decide on engaging him. He works closely with his clients and provides constant updates on the progress of the marketing. With just a small investment in the marketing and advertising, Dominic had helped us achieve a much better result in the final price and at the same time avoid underselling our property. We are very pleased with what he has achieved for us. With his vast knowledge and work experience in the property market we will not hesitate to engage him again in future should the need arise.

Warwick & Judith Jacques

Hi Dominic, Just want to thank you for your positive attitude during the difficult sale process of our leasehold apartment in the landings. There was times when we wondered if we were going to get through this, but you kept on saying "we will get there" and yes we did, although it took us 5 months to achieve. We are now free of it and we can get on with the rest of our lives. We would recommend you to anyone looking to sell their property for your honesty, integrity and tireless efforts to get the best result for your clients.
