I was going to sell the house privately and asked you to give your opinion on the value of our house on that basis. You obliged us and after meeting with you, we decided to sell it through you. You sold it in two weeks, for a premium price. We would recommend you to anyone wanting a committed and professional service, offered with a kind smile.
D. Hickey & I. Napier
Over the last six or seven weeks you became a person that we would be proud and honoured to recommend. You have also become a firm friend. Not bad considering we had no idea who you were when we first saw you as an unknown agent on someone else’s sale notice.

Lynn was very proactive in approaching us to sell our house while looking at a house to buy. She had a prospect in mind once she had viewed the property, which indicated that Lynn understands buyers’ and sellers’ requirements. We had a very impressive offer presented within 12 hours of this person viewing the house. The end result was a win-win situation for both parties.
Selling a property is always a challenge, doing it from the other side of the world when you aren’t even in New Zealand is an interesting exercise! I needn’t have worried, Lynn’s absolute professionalism, excellent communication skills and her drive made it an easy and stress free process. Only the consummate professional could achieve this. If you don’t use Lynn to sell your home (as opposed to selling your house) I think you may regret it.
The house was tenanted, and diplomacy and understanding was needed at all times so that the tenants were treated with respect. Their circumstances needed to be taken into consideration, while also relying on them to both give access to the house, and present it to a standard suitable to show prospective buyers.
While the inside of the house was in an acceptable condition, and presented well by the tenants, the outside needed work: the house was marketed as an opportunity in waiting, a do-up.
The market in February was not buoyant, but Lynn achieved great results thanks to the marketing campaign. The advertising, flyers and photography gave great exposure to the house and brought out its special qualities. Scores of people attended the open homes.
I had bought the house, 11 years ago, through another agency. But of all the gents I met during the search, it was Lynn that stood out for her conscientious and cheerful approach. So I sought her out when the time came to put it on the market. Lynn came through just as I expected, in exactly the way that made her so memorable. Her communication with me, the tenants and property manager could not have been better: she kept me well informed of developments, while making sure the tenants’ lives were not disrupted too much.
Small repairs and maintenance, cleaning and any hiccups that turned up while getting the house ready for the market were handled quickly and efficiently by Lynn.
The campaign ended with a sale by auction, and Lynn gave informed, helpful advice about the reserve. The house was sold under the hammer on the day, with several prospective buyers making bids. The end result was above the reserve. Despite the condition of the house, the market, the absentee owner and the tenants’ special requirements, it was Lynn’s hard work that ensured that the house was sold for the right price, with all parties – vendor, buyer and tenants – kept happy through the process.
I would happily recommend Lynn Gore as the finest real estate agent I have encountered, to buyers or vendors. She made a potentially stressful process worry free, and achieved an excellent result.

Lynn Gore came highly recommended to us, as the person, from the agency, best qualified for selling our home in Ponsonby. We were impressed with her professional and highly approachable style. At all times we found her priority was to build the profile of our house rather than herself.
As we were relative novices in the world of real estate, Lynn took the time to clearly explain the advantages for selling our house via auction. She relieved our fear of feeling under pressure during the process and gave us confidence how the best price could be achieved. Our understanding of effective selling and negotiation was enhanced by the many examples Lynn was able to share with us from her years of selling in the area. Her honesty and integrity was such an asset and we really valued her advice and support.
Once we contracted Lynn as our agent she took great interest in helping us to de-clutter our home and position our furniture for maximum advantage. At each open home she even went the extra mile to put fresh fruit into the bowl on the outdoor table! We were impressed with her attention to detail during the photography of the house and in the preparation of relevant and interesting copy to promote the benefits of the house. The copy and the layout for each advertisement, brochure and sign were written by Lynn and put together in-house which proved efficient and cost effective. I enjoyed being so involved in this process and getting the opportunity to make ‘on the spot’ amendments as required.
Lynn was knowledgeable and efficient in using our marketing spend to generate maximum exposure in the relevant media over the 3 week auction period. Thanks to her contacts in the industry she was also able to achieve a feature article on our home in ‘Herald Homes’ which we really valued.
Each week, Lynn prepared a thorough marketing report which proved highly informative based on the follow up calls she had made with people attending the open homes. The information wasn’t always what we wanted to hear but it gave us a realistic picture of our home’s value within the market at the time.
Lynn was a pleasure to work with and we would recommend her to anyone wishing to sell or buy a property.
Thank you once again Lynn.
Jay-Jay Feeney & Dom Harvey
We recently enlisted the help of Lynn Gore to sell our house in Grey Lynn. It was Christmas time, arguably the worst time of the year to get a house ready for market, but Lynn was positive and supportive of our plans.
We put the house up for sale in the middle of January and Lynn organised home staging and offered help with whatever was needed.
Lynn visited our house often to ensure it was looking its best, picking up leaves and bringing in rubbish bins.
She maximised resources available to her, in order to give our home the best chance of selling. Lynn kept us informed regularly of any developments or interest in our home and tried her best to satisfy our requests. We could rely on Lynn 100% and had full faith in her that she would sell our house for a good price! And she did.
Lynn is very honest, hardworking and passionate about her work. She has excellent customer service skills, making us feel like we were her only client! We felt she had our interests at heart. She went above and beyond the call of duty.
We would absolutely recommend Lynn as an agent to anyone who asks and hope to use her again if we are buying or selling in this area.
Lynn has been extremely professional in her approach to marketing our home from the first meeting through to successful sale. She communicated often and honestly about buyer feedback, and worked every potential buyer thoroughly, so that we had absolute confidence in her ability to sell our home for the best possible price. She goes way beyond the call of duty and offered us all sorts of additional help including the services of her daughter to tidy up some outside areas for us.
I would recommend Lynn unreservedly to anyone looking for an experienced professional to market their home in the Grey Lynn area.

I first met Lynn when viewing an open home. She was welcoming and professional without being pushy. I subsequently bought that house at auction and although the e4xperience was scary I was never pressurised into bidding and I decided to choose Lynn to market my previous home and sell by auction.
Lynn was very focussed on promoting the benefits of my house and I was confident she would gather interest. The marketing was professional and her feedback was always detailed and prompt.
She definitely has the personal touch and was so keen to get the best buyer that she spent time picking up leaves etc. to market the house at its best. Auction night arrived and many people and 5 serious bidders appeared.
The house sold at a price above my expectations and I think that was thanks to Lynn and her hard work. I would happily recommend Lynn as I have found her an honest, caring agent who goes the extra mile to satisfy her clients.
31 Ardmore Road, Ponsonby
Lynn Gore sold my house at 31 Ardmore Road, Ponsonby, in April 2010. It was not a straight-forward sale, and Lynn handled the various hurdles with aplomb. As the owner, but living 600km away, I was unable to oversee the sales process in person, and needed to rely on Lynn completely. I was impressed by Lynn’s commitment and approach. She personally wrote the copy for the advertisements and spent an evening with the photographer to make sure that the shots were perfect. Her reporting was always on time, and throughout the process I received regular (sometimes daily) updates.
Selling you home is stressful for sure, but not only was a fantastic result achieved it was done with the utmost professionalism.
Dean & Michelle
Lynn came highly recommended to us by family when we were looking to buy a house. She successfully helped us achieve this and impressed us with her knowledge, honesty and integrity.
When it came time to sell recently, Lynn expertly steered us through the sale and auction, ensuring everything went smoothly and with a result that exceeded our expectations. Throughout the process she was professional, hardworking and showed a genuine dedication to getting the best possible result. Thank you Lynn, we wish you continued success and hope to work with you again.
I originally purchased my house from Lynn several years ago and when the time came to sell recently, it was without hesitation that I chose Lynn to sell my property.
From the moment that we first met, Lynn worked very hard and was totally committed to sell my house. The marketing campaign and the photographs were fantastic and the open homes very successful.
Three and a half weeks later Lynn sold my house under the hammer, for the price that I wished for and I have already referred Lynn to all my friends as I know, with confidence, that she will do an outstanding job for them as she will for you.
If you are looking for an honest, 110% committed, empathetic, clear communicator, don’t look further: Lynn Gore is the person that you need.
