Before commencing a career in real estate, Sinéad completed a Masters Degree and spent 14 years working as a vet and for Government in policy and regulation.

What can you expect if you ask Sinéad for real estate help?
“From my initial discussions with clients I establish what their goals are so I can then present them with a detailed analysis of the market relevant to their needs (whether buying or selling). I support all my advice with data and written reports so my clients can make rational, fact-based decisions at a time that is well-known to be emotional and stressful. I take the time to explain these reports in person to ensure they really understand the options and opportunities and leave them to reflect carefully to make the best decision for them. Every element of my offer is adaptable: I tailor my service to meet individual needs because that’s how I deliver the best outcome for everyone. Front of mind, always, for me are trust and honesty because that’s the foundation of positive real estate experiences that build lasting relationships.”
Her hardworking approach means Sinéad never leaves a stone unturned. She has received extensive positive feedback from vendors and purchasers across many deals. Here’s what Don Griffin, who recently sold his Muritai Road home through Sinéad at Tommy’s, had to say. “Over the entire period we found Sinéad to be persistent in following up each and every one of the scores of potential buyers. We came to value her assessments of the market at various intervals. In all respects we found her to be what I might term a realistic professional and we were never in any doubt that she was working at all times in our best interests.”
Testimonials for Sinéad Diederich (Sales consultant at Tommy’s)
I chose Sinéad Diederich to sell my property in Eastbourne because Tommy’s had originally sold it to me. I was very impressed: Sinéad couldn't do enough to help, went out of her way to be available and to my delight, achieved my asking price. I would strongly Sinéad to anyone buying or selling a property.
(Wendy Davies, vendor)
We chose Sinéad to sell our property because the initial Agent was not working for us and we were recommended a change to Tommy’s. The aspects of dealing with Tommy’s Real Estate which we liked the most were their professionalism, enthusiasm and willingness to work to achieve the sale. They made constructive suggestions to combat the Wellington down turn and actively brought prospects to the house. The agents did everything we asked for. Great Service, thank you.
(Gregg & Judy Lymberry, vendors)
I chose you as the earlier agent (chosen by my father) did not manage to sell the house. Also I have used Tommy's successfully before to both buy and sell and previous house. I was very happy with the service - the fact that you made a sale and keeping me informed. I particularly liked the persistence and friendly information. Value for money was fine. I would recommend you.
(Glenn Coleman, vendor)
We chose to sell our house with Tommy’s because of the friendliness and down to earth nature of Sinéad. She treated the sale of our house as her number one priority, ensuring we were always well informed of the interest from potential buyers and supported us throughout negotiation process. We would be more than happy to list our house with Sinéad and Tommy’s in the future and will highly recommend their services to others.
(Stu & Kate Devenport vendors)
I've always found Sinéad to be very professional, polite and sincere. Nothing ever seems to be a problem - I would happily recommend Sinéad to anyone buying or selling a home.
(Phil Diamond, purchaser)
We selected Sinéad because I appreciated the honest appraisal she had given us on another property last year, we felt we could trust her. What we liked most was the supportive comments throughout the marketing and being given a realistic marketing campaign. She listened to our appraisal of the property. (Brian and Marilyn Berry, vendors)
I chose Sinéad because I had seen her working and her results and several positive referrals from satisfied clients. What I liked most was the seemingly endless number of people brought through, not only on the Sunday open home but during weekdays and nights! Tommy’s are not just “one day a week” promoters of your property. Sinéad is professional, charming and not afraid of hard work; a salesperson, not just an agent. She develops a close rapport with vendors and buyers.
(Ted Downing, vendor).
I selected Sinéad for her professionalism and helpfulness. The aspect I liked most of dealing with Tommy’s was her detailed analysis and marketing strategy
(Tina Qu, Vendor)
We engaged Tommy’s to sell my home at 289 Muritai Road in February 2013. Sinéad Diederich was the agent principally involved in the sale process and I am pleased to offer comment on her performance as experienced by myself and my wife Kay. The market proved difficult and was characterised by buyers who were intent of reducing the level of risk to almost zero using builders and engineers to inspect the house and its foundation on a number of occasions. This proved frustrating for all concerned but eventually after 6 months the property was sold albeit at a reduced price. Over the entire period we found Sinéad to be persistent in following up each and every one of the scores of potential buyers. She provided us with full and prompt feedback and in all respects we found her to be what I might term a realistic professional. We came to value her assessments of the market at various intervals and eventually her advice produced a buyer. Sinéad is a very pleasant person to deal with and we feel sure that the many buyers she engaged with would have found her, as we did, very helpful. We have no hesitation in recommending her to any resident of Eastbourne looking to place the sale of their home in the hands of a well informed and professional real estate agent. We were never in any doubt that she was working at all times in our best interests.
(Don and Kay Griffin, vendors)
“We were very happy with the results achieved by Sinéad at Tommy’s. Communication and feedback was excellent prior to the sale of our property and she showed the highest degree of professionalism, consideration and experience. We were impressed at the focus on our property and her determination to sell it at the price and time frame that we were happy with. Throughout the whole process we felt we were in safe hands and had no doubts she would get us a good result, which she did easily and with not stress or fuss for us”
During what has been a long and protracted purchase process (due to probate) I have come to have a profound respect for Sinéad Diederich of Tommy’s Real Estate, who demonstrated the greatest professionalism and patience with what at times has been an extremely frustrating exercise. Sinéad was very friendly and accommodating and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who is considering either purchasing or buying a property.
(Gerald Wichman, purchaser)
The aspect of dealing with you which I liked the most was your friendliness and understanding of my needs
(Viv Bornholdt, purchaser)
I chose Sinéad at Tommy’s because she sold my previous house. The aspects I liked were that she was upfront, helpful, gets results and is easy to deal with.
