"Alison is one of he best real estate agents out of the many we have dealt with over the years. Her advice, competence, and carry through to the sale of a property that involved a complex "As Is, Where Is" sale was conducted to our complete satisfaction. We can highly recommend her services & management to others looking for a top agent when selling.

"We recently had the most rewarding experience selling our house through Alison Aitken and her team at Harcourts Grenadier. 

We had used another agent from another company previously and were not happy with the experience, so on a friends recommendation contacted Alison. If there is one word that could describe the experience from our very first meeting to the conclusion of the sale by auction it is PROFESSIONALISM. The whole performance from the first meeting through to promotion and open homes was akin to a well rehearsed and superbly acted opera. There was nothing that was not thought of and catered for. The end result was beyond our expectations. We are extremely happy and if you are looking to sell or simply want to talk about selling your house, then we recommend that you get in touch with Alison. 

As someone who has been in business for many years in Canterbury and dealt with a great number of professionals from all works of life, Alison stands out as one of the best I have dealt with.

"A BIG THANK YOU to Alison, Claudia & Rachel and your whole team for your tireless efforts and professional conduct in getting our property sold! Our compliments to Phil for another sterling performance. He definitely 'nailed it' by keeping the auction alive, thus achieving the optimum outcome. It never fails to amaze me how he can read a room... LEGEND. You all truly deserve to be Number 1".

"We unreservedly recommend Alison Aitken, Pauline Wilson and their team at Harcourts Grendier to market and sell property. We couldn't have been happier with our decision to work with them. From our first meeting we were impressed with Pauline's friendliness, approach-ability, honesty, knowledge & efficiency. We appreciated her listing to our feelings and taking those into account when she planned her strategy. The professionalism of all the staff was outstanding. It has been a pleasure for us to market and sell our property with Pauline and Alison. We never doubted their 100% loyalty to us."

A professional and friendly service was provided to me during the sale of my property. Selling my house was a difficult decision to make and I can honestly say the whole process was made straight forward and easy thanks to the wonderful service I received. I was provided with excellent market reports and feedback regarding interest, and was informed regularly on how the marketing campaign was proceeding. It really has been an absolute pleasure dealing with Ally, Rachel, Phil and the extended Harcourts Grenadier team. I certainly recommend them, and the auction process, as the best way to sell a home."

"Alison was always friendly, accommodating, professional, approachable and open. Before we sold our house with her, she impressed us with always providing us with whatever information we requested. She always phoned back promptly, gave sound advice, listened empathetically and had an easy going yet professional manner. We were so impressed with her (and Angela, Rachel & Pauline; her team)."

Vendor at 6 Emerald Lane, Cashmere Hills

"We wanted to write and say a big thank you for selling our home recently. We have both been constantly saying, since the day you came through our door "you wouldn't go anywhere else". In fact you would be mad to. From the day we met you were open and honest with us. We have sold many homes in the past but we have never experienced anything quite like the service we received from you and your team. We were constantly impressed with the high level of communication from yourself and your team; the level of professionalism, work ethic and attention to detail was exceptional. We felt very comfortable that you were doing the best for us, that all the stress that con sometimes happen with selling your home was taken away and we just sat back. Nothing was ever a problem - you just dealt with everything. When it came to auction night, your team were there to support us and we appreciated the honest feedback you gave us which enabled us to sell our home successfully within 3 weeks."
