Sinead Diederich

Profile

Well known for her boundless energy, positive attitude, creative ideas and absolute professionalism, Sinéad is transforming the local property market with a growing group of loyal clients and an enviable reputation for results.

Originally from Ireland, Sinéad married a Kiwi and together with their 2 kids and 2 dogs moved from Brussels to Lower Hutt in 2009.

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. She attributes her exceptional client relationship and project management skills to this period. Her intelligence as well as her ability to understand customer needs, quickly build rapport and transform this into lasting relationships saw her succeed as a vet and is now a large part of her success as a real estate agent.

Sinéad’s approach to real estate is simple: with her you get intelligence, total professionalism and personal commitment on every stage of every contract. Her core values set her apart:
• Intelligence: Sinéad brings her bright ideas to every property – from Facebook marketing in the growing online marketplace and selling the unique lifestyle that different communities offer, you’ll see her intelligence at work from appraisals, through listing and until the SOLD sign is up and your removals van is booked.
• Integrity: Sinéad’s word is her promise. She works to the highest professional standard with honesty at the core of her business.
• Communication: Sinéad is an outstanding communicator who will keep you informed at every step and willingly accept your suggestions and feedback.
• Personal involvement: Sinéad puts in the time to really understand the needs of buyers to maximise the chance of completing every sale.
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.”

Sinéad impressed us throughout our sale process with her professionalism and attention to detail: she was sincere, focused and motivated. We found her to be creative in her approach to the sale of our home and determined to find the best buyer for us. She really listened to what we wanted and needed and was always considerate and respectful of our home and family environment. After a four week campaign she successfully brought us two buyers and worked closely with us throughout the negotiation of the sale. Sinéad is a determined and professional agent who is extremely focused and hard-working. She is also a very nice person of integrity and determination.

Muritai Road - vendor

Sinead is an outstanding estate agent, and I have dealt with many over the years in several different countries. Sinead is approachable, empathetic and despite the fact I live in the northern hemisphere, all my emails were answered with incredible speed regardless of the ten hour time difference. One of the primary reasons I asked Sinead to sell my property was because I felt she was honest, and I continue to think that at all times she told me what she believed rather that what she thought I would want to hear. Many sales people are not straight talkers! She was able to find a buyer for my house, at a good price and at a time when the NZ Central Bank, in its efforts to prevent a housing bubble in Auckland, was making it difficult to sell houses in other parts of the country. It was a real pleasure to do business with her and she deserves success and recognition in her sphere of work.

We put a lot of thought into selecting the right agent to sell our property. It was important that we could trust the integrity of the advice we were given and that we could rely on what was promised being delivered. Given the short window of opportunity we had to sell, we needed and honest and realistic appraisal from the outset, we could not afford to have our expectations set unrealistically high only to be ultimately conditioned down by a lengthy marketing process. Sinead gave us a detailed apprasial that we could work with and acheived the sale price that we wanted. Sinead has an intelligent approach and provided a tailored marketing strategy to highlight the unique features of our property. We wanted to reach both active and passive buyers, locally and overseas. Sinead responded quickly with several creative options and had a clearly established network of specialists to draw upon for staging, photography and press coverage. She also gave us very helpful and focussed advice on the things we needed to do to maximise the appeal and the value of our property. Sinead managed to get us the highest possible profile and visibility in a matter of days with online and print marketing stategies. With our tight timeframe, Sinead worked hard to meet our deadlines, having the property listed within a week and achieving a sale by tender within 3 weeks. Sinead kept us informed throughout the process with quality information and clearly maintained good rapport with potential buyers. We enjoyed working with Sinead throughout the whole process. The qualities we particulary appreciate about Sinead are her utmost integrity, personal commitment and intelligent, creative and tailored approach to her business. We wholeheartly recommend her as an exceptional agent.

Kensington Avenue - purchaser March 2014

"We chose Sinead after we met her at an open home because we found her very professional, energetic and interested in what we were trying to achieve. She provided us with a thoroughly researched and what we believed realistic market appraisal of our home. Throughout the process, from getting the house ready for the market, to presenting us with multiple offers, we found Sinead an extremely effective communicator which has made the sale of our home a very happy experience. On top of that she managed to exceed our expectation in terms of price and by selling our home in 7 days! We are more than happy to recommend Sinead who is professional, engaging and delivers the results.”

"Sinead is building an enviable record of taking high quality houses in the Eastbourne/Lower Hutt region and connecting the right buyers with the right real estate options and closing buisiness. Sinead came to our attention as someone who has delivered for some of our friends both buying and selling their properties and we were left in no doubt that we were dealing with one of the brightest stars in the market at this time. I have no hesitation in recommending Sinead to anyone looking to position their house/flat especially if you have taken the time to put a standout home on to the market and want to connect with that special buyer that will fall in love with your vision. Thank you Sinead, we appreciate all your help, support, honesty, commitment and the fact that you delivered on every promise you made, good luck wit your next listing!"

Viv Bornholdt, purchaser

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.

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.

Tina Qu, Vendor

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.

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.

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.
