Profile

Helen is a tenacious negotiator and tireless worker who inspires clients confidence because she knows what she’s doing. She joined Tommy’s in 2001 and won a national REINZ award the year after – testimony to her exceptional sales record and talent from the get go.

Helen’s key strengths are her patience and negotiation skills. "The tougher it gets", says Helen, "the more determined I am to bring it all together." Helen has on occasion even stopped her vendor accepting an offer and gone back to the buyer because she knew she could get more. She has a rare talent for seeing things clearly and brings objectivity into the business of buying and selling.

Helen works in partnership with her husband Paul – that’s two people, with 20 plus years combined experience, working in your best interests. Their complimentary strengths, skills and capacity to get the job done, are well appreciated by clients.

Having had a successful career in banking, including experience as Loans Manager, prior to joining Tommy’s is also put to good use with clients. Understanding people’s needs and working with their expectations is something Helen does very well. A hallmark of Helen’s success is her clear thinking and calm manner through what can be a stressful emotional time.

"Working with the emotion of selling or purchasing a loved family home is not easy. Helping people feel comfortable with the process is all about giving objective, timely advice and a clear pathway to the sale”, says Helen, “when you’ve grown up in this city like I have, and chosen to make it your home, you know a lot of people and you’re known by a lot more. Reputation, goodwill and integrity count for a lot, not just now but for years into the future. That’s why you can count on me to give your sale my very best. I ask myself; if I was you, would I be happy with how well Helen has worked on my behalf? Thinking that way keeps me very, very focused on excellence."

“Outstanding customer service” Helen recently sold my apartment. Helen was an excellent agent and was thorough and efficient in everything she did in marketing it. Her customer service was outstanding. Helen is a genuine and lovely person. Helen gave an excellent and meaningful presentation giving me all the facts about current market, values and sales. After every showing she gave me the up to date feedback and always kept me informed of all developments. My apartment sold quickly mainly due to all the hard and diligent work of Helen.

“With Helen in charge; it’s easy” Helen has done a wonderful job for us selling us a house and then selling my house in less than three weeks! Everyone says this scenario is highly stressful but with Helen in charge it was easy. The traits we most valued about Helen was her honesty, experience and practicality. She never once promised something she couldn’t deliver and we immediately felt we could trust her. She is pragmatic and sensible in her approach and all of the advice she gave us was before selling mine – she clearly laid out the options and risks and I appreciated her wisdom. If everyone could work with real estate agents of her calibre the whole industry would have a wonderful reputation.

“You will enjoy working with them” My husband and I would like to thank both Paul and Helen Anderson for the invaluable assistance in selling our much-loved home of 17 years. They worked with us in a professional manner with real care and integrity. Helen kept us fully informed during the sales process. She was always easy to contact and always returned phone messages quickly. Helen’s knowledge of the real estate market along with her strong work ethic and sense of humour put us at ease and gave us confidence. Paul’s artistic flair showed in the way he arranged photos to be taken and in the absolutely beautiful brochure he put together for our ‘Open Days’. We highly recommend Helen and Paul for anyone buying or selling a home. You will enjoy working with them. We certainly did.

“Take Paul and Helen’s advice” Paul and Helen found a new place for us and sold our old place. The path to finding a new place arose after we mentioned to Paul that we were looking for something with some extra space/spare room to cope with the changing needs of elderly parents and growing kids. Paul actively kept an eye out for us and contacted us with Tommy’s listed (or was about to list) something that Paul thought might fit our needs and preferred style. That is, we weren’t ourselves very actively looking, but Paul kept his eye out for opportunities for us – good for the vendors of our new place and a very good example for us as prospective vendors. In terms of selling our old place, Paul and Helen did a great job of the marketing and presentation of the home, and had a number of contacts that they brought through as soon as we listed. One piece of advice I would have is to make sure you make time to take Paul and Helen’s advice – whether as vendor or purchaser – to get the optimum outcome. Paul and Helen’s complimentary skills make them a great, and fun, team to deal with.

“Passionate about their work” Helen and Paul went beyond our expectations in both their marketing and strategy for the sale of our property. They portrayed our house beautifully in a stunning sales brochure, which caught the very essence of our home. They were always helpful, extremely professional and very personable; nothing was ever too much trouble. We highly recommend them to anyone wanting to sell their home; they truly are passionate about their work. Thank you Helen and Paul.

“Local knowledge. Complementary strengths” Thank you for your wonderful help in selling our home a few weeks ago. Your professional approach and sound advice made the whole process run smoothly for us and we always felt we were in safe hands. The bonus was to have the two of you complementing each others’ strengths: Helen with all her experience in the real estate business and her local knowledge; and Paul with his design and marketing flair and love of architecture and classic houses! We were very pleased with the sale/marketing material prepared for our house. Thanks too for your regular phone calls and visits to us at home. Your personable and relaxed approach meant we felt as if we’d known you for years and this added to our confidence in you both and in the sale process in general. Thanks too Paul for your on-going contact and [property] advice since our house was sold...

“Bought and sold for life” We invited Paul & Helen Anderson to give us an appraisal on our home to sell providing they could find us an apartment in the city and they did in a very short time which happened to be just where we thought we would like to live. So it was all go. Most of our dealings were done through Paul who always had a smile to greet you and guide us along the way. Paul found us our forever home and we just love our new life in this exciting city of ours Wellington.

“Recognition of excellence” Helen Anderson recently sold our home and was also the agent whom we purchased the property from six years ago. Having been a real estate agent myself (in the past) I instantly recognised excellent negotiation skills when Helen sold us the property so naturally when it came to selling our home Helen was first choice. This proved to be a great decision. We had three offers on the table in less than a week after going to market - all of which were above our expectations. We could not have wished for a more professional, efficient, helpful, caring and friendly real estate agent. Helen and Paul made the sale of our home a pleasant and easy experience. They were a great team. I have no hesitation in recommending Helen and Paul to anyone who has a property to market or is looking for a new property and would most certainly use their services again should the need arise.

“A five-star experience for us” Helen and Paul Anderson sold our rental property in Crofton Downs recently. Eight years ago Helen was the agent who originally found us this property to purchase. We were so pleased with her efforts then that we appointed her and Paul as the agents for our recent sale without hesitation. They were professional, responsive and incredibly helpful throughout the selling process. We were living in New Plymouth at the time so their extra efforts were instrumental in preparing our house for sale. Their communication was impeccable, and they always went the extra mile ensuring the whole process was a positive and relaxing experience. We have developed a strong relationship with Helen and her team and would recommend them to anyone who is planning to buy or sell a property. Definitely a five-star experience for us.

“We appreciated their wisdom” Helen and Paul are a great mix of being both professional and personable. We needed to sell our rental property within a short timeframe and were managing things from long distance. Their no-nonsense approach coupled with their thorough attention to detail assured us we were in safe hands. They were extremely helpful and we really appreciated their wisdom about the local market and their willingness to make the whole process so easy for us. Great result! Thank you both.

“Proactive and client focused” Looking to buy or sell your house, then Paul & Helen are the team for you. We would not hesitate in recommending Paul and Helen to help sell your property and find you a new property. From the time we met Paul at an open home, he was very proactive in helping us find our next home. We had quite specific, and narrow, requirements for our next home and Paul was excellent at staying in contact throughout the six month period. Once we found our new home, we only had a few weeks to sell our current place! Paul and Helen did an excellent job getting our property on the market within a few days. Paul worked his marketing magic to create some great collateral. This along with Tommy’s reach meant we had people viewing our house on the first day, and had 7 offers in just over a week. Paul and Helen are warm, friendly and professional to deal with.

“Taking the initiative” Helen & Paul… sold my flat… while I was in the UK… This was the first property I have sold… Helen & Paul were happy to talk me through the process. Their honesty about the likely sale price and the state of the market in Wellington was particularly welcome. They kept me informed, by international phone calls, at every stage of the process. They cleaned the flat thoroughly before it was viewed and organised cleaning after it had sold. They beautified the flat in small but important ways, on their own initiative, to make it more appealing to potential buyers. The sale went smoothly and quickly…
