Well done Justine and Hayley and thank you for the great service you and UP have provided over the sale of our home. You have been so professional and we have enjoyed the whole process. You're outstanding attention to detail has meant that the sale was always going to happen one way or another. Thanks again and I will have no hesitation in recommending you to my friends and family!
Mathew and Cathy
Justine & Hayley make a fantastic team. They provided honest and constructive advice to us to ensure our house was shown at it's best, and gave us realistic expectations based on their local knowledge and expertise.
They guided us through what can be a daunting and stressful process, and kept us completely up to date with written weekly updates and phone conversations every step of the way. And when auction day came around, we felt the entire company was behind us to ensure we got the best possible result. On auction day UP Real Estate makes YOUR HOUSE the focus of the auction, rather than being one in a long line of houses being sold on the same day. We truly believe this method achieves a better result for the vendor on the day.
Justine and Hayley & the rest of the team at UP Real Estate are amazing.

Thank you for all your time, effort, perseverance, openness, honesty & outstanding professionalism throughout the process of selling our home! You were both an amazing team to work with.
Incredibly professional, in not only the way you presented our home but also throughout the process of selling our house - this showed through from the constant communication each week, pre & post open homes and the thorough analysis & feedback you gave each week.
From the start, we were open & honest and we received the same honesty and openness back from both of you. What we liked immediately was your passion to sell our home, this shone through right from the start, when you walked into our home.
And, it was that passion and 'Wow!' factor that we wanted potential buyers to also feel when they walked in. So we knew, right from the beginning, we had a great team to work with. Thank you also to the wider team at Unlimited Potential (UP).
We felt we had your full support throughout the sale of our home and we would highly recommend you to friends and colleagues.
Melissa & Mike
Justine and Hayley – what a team! Professional, trustworthy, thorough and both incredibly genuine. Not sure you could ask for much more in a real estate agent! We are so glad we listed our Mt Albert property with them – they ‘consulted’ with us the whole way through and I was surprised at the amount of detail in their communication throughout the marketing campaign. They also know their stuff when it comes to the presentation standard of your home, appealing to the widest audience and interiors advice. We loved their honesty throughout. Hayley and Justine’s expertly run process gave us a great sale result and we are now very happy vendors en route to our next adventure! In a competitive real estate market these two definitely stand out from the crowd. Thank you for taking such good care of us!

We are delighted to recommend Justine Koning and Hayley Kirk-Smith as the team to market and sell your home.
As a team they were honest, realistic, proactive and positive during the sales process and achieved a great result for us. The quantity and quality of the communication during the process was excellent and we had absolute trust in their guidance.
The support from the UP team - fantastic photography, great marketing presentations and a well executed campaign in both print and online meant we attracted an excellent number of potential buyers to open homes.
Support at the auction from Grant Lynch was well received, as we are newbies to auction process.
A great result.
Justine and Hayley, are team to call when you want a stress free buying / selling experience.

Our decision to sell our family home after 38 years was daunting for us, to say the least.
Choosing Justine and Hayley from UP was easy.
On their first visit they showed how caring and understanding of the way we were feeling as first time sellers and we immediately felt confident to go with them and choose the UP way
In a limited market they showed A CLASS ACT.
Amazing advertising, a Caring manner, Loyalty to us, Always available for advice, and did we mention the Shoes…. and finally Sold!
They achieved the best outcome for us on the day.
Grant, the owner from UP was with us on auction day to guide and advise us with his vast knowledge of the industry.
Thank you Justine and Hayley. You are a great team!
Justine Koning helped us sell our house in Marsden Avenue. She was outstanding to deal with - always thoroughly professional but warm and engaging. She has an amazing eye for design and gave us really excellent and very personalised advice regarding the presentation of our house. We also greatly appreciated her clear communication skills. At all times we were thoroughly briefed about the marketplace and potential buyers.
Selling a house can be a really stressful experience. We felt that choosing UP and Justine helped make the whole process flow incredibly smoothly. We received highly focused, individualised care which I think is the strength of UP.
We would have absolutely no hesitation in engaging Justine as our selling agent again and can't recommend her highly enough.

Justine Koning from UP Real Estate recently represented us in the sale of our property in St Leonards Road, Epsom. Engaging the right agent who you feel truly represents you as the vendor, invests the right amount of time and passion into the sale and is a strong communicator is imperative. This is what Justine delivers! Her professionalism throughout the whole process has been second to none.
This is the second time we have engaged the services of Justine and we will do so again in the future! Quite simply put - Justine is a real estate agent genuinely focused on delivering for the vendor.
Justin and Raewyn
Justine was the acting agent for the sale of our much loved family home in Mt Eden. After speaking to a number of agents we went with Justine based on the advice she gave us about getting the best price. During the campaign, she was professional and communicated well throughout the process. On auction day, and during subsequent negotiations, Justine and Unlimited Potential worked hard to get the sale through and we are thrilled with the result.
It is with great pleasure that we recommend Justine to any one seeking a dynamic and professional agent.

We chose Justine to market our property because of her strong and long standing presence within our area, her knowledge of our neighbourhood, the fact she lives within our community and is connected to it and as a result has a history of impressive sales achievements. We were not disappointed.
Justine partnered with us and supported us in buying the perfect next home in a very difficult market and then quickly turned her attention to orchestrating a tailored campaign that took into account we had a very young family and achieved an excellent result for us. We would recommend her to others without hesitation.

From the start Justine was very approachable. She communicated well throughout the selling process. Justine was committed to, and confident about selling our house.
She remained confident when the house was passed in at auction and a short time later negotiated a great price for the property.
She is hardworking and passionate about her job, and about gaining the best possible outcome for the seller.
She is very knowledgeable about the local market and gives good advice on the selling process.

“Justine goes above and beyond to drive results for her vendors – in a changing market, Justine managed to achieve our asking price as a sale price – what more could you ask for? At no stage did we feel pushed or harassed in any way, and the entire selling process was handled in a friendly, efficient and professional manner. Justine is forthright, results-orientated and lovely to deal with – selling house is a difficult exercise at the best of times but Justine rendered the process relatively painless, and we got what we wanted in a reasonable time frame – thank you Justine!”

It is with pleasure that I provide this reference for Justine Koning who sold our house in Sandringham in 2013.
Justine has been the local agent for Sandringham for some years. I am aware that she has sold many properties in our area and achieves very good sale prices.
When we were looking to sell our property, Justine was our first port of call. Her approach is professional and collaborative. She provided recent sales information and a “sales pack” setting out all the information that we needed in order to assist our decision making.
With minimal advertising, helpful input into presenting the property at its best for sale, excellent knowledge of the local housing market, excellent use of her contacts and follow up with open home buyers, Justine ensured that we got the best possible price for our home in a short timeframe.
I recommend Justine to anyone wishing to sell their home. Her collaborative style, trustworthiness and knowledge of the area are second to none and achieved great results for us.

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of selling our home through Justine Koning at Unlimited Potential.
From the beginning of our dealings with Justine she was at all times highly professional and knowledgeable about the current market both in our area and in Auckland in general. She was extremely supportive and honest in guiding us through the process of selling our home by auction. Justine was available to us whenever we had questions regarding the sale of our home and regularly contacted us throughout each week of the campaign to informally update us on progress
We were particularly impressed with her understanding of the interested buyers. Justine followed up on all leads, ensuring potential buyers had all of the information required for due diligence, and provided us with a thorough and realistic report each week which helped us to make an informed decision in setting the reserve on auction day.
We have two young children so maintaining an ‘open-home ready’ house at all times was very difficult. Justine was sensitive to this and to our family’s routines and made sure, whenever possible, that we had plenty of notice of viewing times that fitted in with us. This made the process infinitely less stressful than we had thought.
We were delighted by the sale-price for our home and with the sale under the hammer. We are certain that Justine’s contribution as an experienced agent enabled us to achieve a premium for our home.
We would not hesitate in recommending Justine as an agent for anyone selling or buying property. We will certainly be listing with her again in the future.

We recently listed and marketed our house at 88 Wairiki Rd, Mt Eden, with Justine Koning of Unlimited Potential. It was a decision that paid off… in bucket-loads.
Not only did Justine achieve a price well beyond our expectations but the sale set a new record for the area. Justine was extremely professional, acting with great integrity. She gave us superb advice on presenting the property, kept us fully informed throughout the campaign and managed the potential buyers with true skill.
A nearby property that was due to auction an hour after ours and which was seen as superior, sold pre-auction, for considerably less than ours. We also had a healthy pre-auction offer and due to Justine’s astute reading of the market, we decided to wait. And it paid off.
While the price premium we achieved could be seen in part due to a hot market in Mt Eden at the time, Justine’s skill in keeping the potential buyers interested was a very important factor. That's especially true given that two of the three bidders were not interested in what is thought to be the key location benefit, i.e. Maungawhau School, and were therefore casting their net wide for properties to buy.
We are more than happy to recommend listing your property with Justine, in fact we would urge you to do so.

“I have to say without reservation that Justine has surpassed all expectations I had of a real estate agent. Her calm professional manner has made what can be a stressful process into a delightful one. She is a hard worker and a creative problem solver. In terms of her customer service I cannot fault it. Her constant communication meant I was always informed; she rapidly responded to requests and always took the time to discuss my thoughts and concerns. Most important Justine works with transparency and honesty, a tribute to her and the culture instilled at UP Realty. I have to say I have bought and sold a few houses in my time and UP, in all ways, has proven to be a cut above any other agency I have dealt with before”

Recently I was in the position of selling my family home and chose Justine Koning to market the property. I have been to a number of open homes that Justine has marketed and I liked her passion and acumen. She also has knowledge of the Sandringham/Mt Eden area second to none.
In my sale Justine found great buyers and secured an outstanding deal that went unconditional quickly. As a vendor I found her to be a great communicator, responsive with feedback and felt incredibly confident that she was working to get me the best deal possible.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Justine to anyone considering selling their property. She is extremely hard working, pro-active and uses her intelligence in every step in the process. In my experience that’s quite rare.
63 Halesowen Ave
My brother and I had owned a property in Mt Eden for around 20yrs, and with the property market the way it is, we decided it was time to move it on.
We had a chat with Justine Koning from “Unlimited Potential” Mt Eden, who had some differing ideas around the way the property should be marketed.
We took the gamble and hired Justine (and so glad we did) to list the property.
Justine did a fabulous job of getting the news to the people.
Open homes were better than all expectations bringing large numbers of people to view the property, and her excellent marketing reports kept us up with the play.
Getting the numbers to view the property is key to a successful sale, and Justine didn’t disappoint.
Suffice to say, the auction went smoothly and the sale price exceeded our expectations.
I will not hesitate in giving Justine a call, with any future properties I have for sale.
39 Tranmere Rd
Justine Koning from UP Realty managed the sale of our Sandringham bungalow which as luck would have it, happened at the same time that the new LVR regime started to impact the market. Justine’s efforts and follow-up maximised the interest we received during our Open Home sessions and we ended up with an offer the day after the auction that we were pleased with.
Justine’s advice was realistic, professional and kept us relatively stress free, Justine helped us get the result we were looking for.
We are very happy to recommend Justine and UP as a realtor that delivers results.

STREET RECORD - $1,830,000
Over a period of 4 months we have together with Justine prepared our villa for sale.
The result of this was a sale that significantly exceeded our wildest expectations (and those of our neighbours) and has helped us further in our life.
We found dealing with Justine a pleasure and she has a very professional attitude and was very helpful.

We just wanted to take the opportunity to express our gratitude for all your assistance throughout our sales process. Your local real estate knowledge and attention to detail was invaluable from the advise of what to do, the offer, inspection and closing processes. In an ever changing local real estate environment we found that having you ‘on our side’ was a tremendous advantage to us and we are thankful to have worked with you.”
Once again, I want to thank you for your part in making this possible. Your time and diligent efforts to assure a smooth transaction are greatly appreciated and we will continue to recommend you highly to friends and family. All the very best success to you.

Funny how the world goes, but we have been in the perhaps unusual situation of working with Justine as both a seller and buyer of property.
Our first engagement came when Justine approached us about selling our house which wasn’t even on the market. A testimony to her tenacity was that we did sell, and were very happy with not only the outcome, but the process. In fact we were not only happy with the outcome and the process but with the overall interaction we had with Justine, which was of the highest professional standard. Justine kept us closely informed of progress in negotiations and she advised us in a way that gave us full confidence that our interests were being well looked after. Buying and selling are stressful events and Justine helped guide us through that.
Shortly after selling, Justine helped identify a property that met our new requirements as a family. Recognising, and being upfront that it is a different relationship when we are a purchaser, Justine still played an important role by offering useful and relevant information about other house sales that helped us make an informed decision about the transaction we were entering in to.
That role was repeated just recently when we went to an open home for one of Justine’s listings. We’ll be moving in there in just a few weeks!
