Helen works in partnership with her husband Paul – that’s two people, with 21 plus years combined experience, working in your best interests. Their complementary 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.”
What My Clients Say
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
