Mission Bay, April 2017
In selling our Mission Bay home we recognised that the all-round quality of our agent was paramount in getting the right potential buyers to view the property.
We took our time in selecting an agent from across the major real estate firms, critiqued a good number, went through each agent’s proposed plan, did reference checks and eventually selected Mark Wilson. Key for us was how our agent would represent us and the property in dealing with potential buyers. We also found Mark’s advice around how we prepared the property for sale to be spot on.
Needless to say, and putting the sale-price to one side, we were very pleased with every aspect of dealing with Mark and Up Real Estate. A true professional who certainly stood out when we went through the process of selecting our agent and throughout the selling process delivered on exactly what we valued. We would have no hesitation in recommending Mark.

“We recently sold our home in Mt Wellington and chose Unlimited Potential to represent us. We chose to work with Karen Prendergast and Mark Wilson. They were very professional and compassionate to our needs as to dates of sale and settlement to allow us to procure our next Home. Karen and Mark were very helpful and gave us great advice in all aspects of the sale of our house. We were also very pleased with the marketing strategies which gave us a successful outcome.
We highly recommend to anyone the use of Karen and Mark as their representatives in the sale of their property.”
Mike and Rae Candy
We owned our property in St Heliers for thirty years so it was important to us that we engaged an agency whom we knew and trusted. We had previously sold a rental property in the same area some years earlier through UP and the whole process was excellent. We had no hesitation in using the same agency again and retained the same agents, Mark and Emma Wilson, who knew the area very well. For our home it was thought best to also work with Lisa and Peter Cleave and the decision to principally work with the four agents worked very well. In fact, other agent colleagues introduced their own buyers so all in all there were many prospects who were able to view the property. However, Mark, Emma, Peter and Lisa were a pleasure to have in our home. Their regular feedback sessions were invaluable in that they created peace of mind.
Grant, Barry and the team were thorough in their approach to crafting an excellent marketing campaign and as it progressed it was clear no changes needed to be made. The photographer, Brad, was amazing in being able to capture the essence of the property and through video was also excellent and useful for overseas buyers. Even the roadside sign with eye catching graphics looked superb.
From initial discussions to getting the final result which exceeded our expectations took around a month. The open home process introduced 150 qualified buyers in three weeks.
We could not have been happier with the result.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Unlimited Potential to any prospective vendors and our advice would be to follow through with every suggestion they make.
We are available to provide a verbal reference if required.
I wanted to thank you again for your effort in selling our home yesterday.
Your approach from day one has been nothing other than outstanding. Your professionalism, expertise and ability to communicate clearly, concisely and with purpose made the process of selling our home simple and enjoyable. More importantly your representation of our property to the market was faultless, including a deep understanding of the market and potential buyer segments, marketing approach right through to the execution of the marketing campaign and open homes.
We felt very confident trusting your advice and judgement at every step of the journey. This was the result of your balanced views and objectivity combined with your willingness to listen and offer suggestions and alternatives where appropriate.
I guess in the real estate business, the ultimate measure of success is the value realised from the property being marketed. Anna and I genuinely believe you and the UP team delivered a premium price for our property that we may not otherwise have achieved with another agent and/or agency.
I look forward to putting more business your way in the future.
Please feel free to use any, or all of the above, as a reference with prospective customers.
Virginia and Andrew Curran
We came upon Mark when we were looking to purchase our first Auckland home. As buyers we were impressed by his knowledge of the eastern bays market and his integrity.
Mark has since been our agent on two occasions as vendors. We've appreciated his honest effective communication, pragmatic and practical advice, flexible approach and his commercial acumen.
It's a big decision choosing who to trust to sell your family home. We've been very happy we chose Mark both times. He understood the value of our home, the timing of the market and we achieved strong results accordingly.
When it comes to understanding what families want in the eastern bays we believe Mark just gets it!

To whom it may concern
It has been an honour to have known Mark and his family for nearly 20 years. The Wilsons are a great family exhibiting the traits of honour, integrity, kindness and helpfulness. Mark, in particular, is a man with an outstanding character. He is honest, reliable and a man of his word. In his capacity as a real estate agent last year he sold a property we owned in St Heliers. This property had its challenges which Mark was unfazed by. His professional ability won through on the day and together with a calm, confident, ethical approach Mark achieved a very satisfactory result for us.
After graduating from University and prior to working in Real Estate, Mark was a lawyer in a St Heliers legal practice where he was held in high regard. During the years my wife and I have known Mark we have regarded him as an over achiever and a man who has overcome challenges that life has thrown him. Mark is wonderfully supported by his wife Emma and both of them are active in the local community and also in their church. We count Mark and his family as dear friends and without exception would trust his advice and opinion in the area of property and finance. We may be contacted for a verbal reference if required.

We asked Mark to sell our home for us, and were delighted that we did. We couldn’t have asked for more - six days to sale, a great outcome, and complete satisfaction in the professional manner in which everything was achieved. From the outset, Mark impressed us with a clear and highly professional approach, he has a real passion for his work, and he gave us every confidence in his integrity and work ethic. Although set for auction, Mark presented us an offer in the first week of the campaign. The manner in which he led us through negotiations, committing to getting the best price for us through an honest and transparent process for all parties was a unique and rewarding experience. We highly recommend both Mark and Unlimited Potential.
Mrs Joy McMiken
Mark is an outstanding professional, and behind that success is the character that shapes that performance. Mark has such a sincere connection with the vendor and exhibits personal skills which show him to be seeing the best possible outcome for the people he works for. He is a man of the highest personal ethics, complete honesty in all matters and his unfailing effort to achieve the most from the sale process, sets him apart from any other real estate professional I have engaged in my near sixty-five years of age!
Paul and Sue Waddell
We found Mark to be a very conscientious agent. He represented our house well and gave us extremely good feedback during the sales process. Our house went to auction, which didn't achieve an immediate result. Mark showed great negotiating skills to effect a deal that same day between us and the other two parties (our purchaser and the property we wanted to purchase) and achieved a great outcome for all of us by closing a deal that we honestly thought was not going to happen.
Mark is pleasant, personable and showed true regard for both us as the client and the prospective purchasers who came to view our home. We would most certainly use Mark again and would recommend him highly.
I recently sold my family home. Mark made this an easy, stress free process for me and achieved a result that I was very pleased with. I found Mark to be knowledgeable, helpful and very professional. His quiet, warm, confident manner made him a pleasure to work with.
Matthew and Tracey Day
Mark contacted us daily and following our first open home sent us a detailed report of potential buyers. When asked to add a few special touches, like purchasing flowers, it was no trouble for Mark to do this.
Mark's real talent revealed itself when he had an interested party who made a pre-auction offer on our home. It was crucial for us that we maintain the interest of this party and that they feel their offer was considered seriously by us. Mark was able to keep us, and the buyer, informed and happy. He continued with the negotiations, arriving at an extremely suitable arrangement for both parties. Mark's ability to close the deal was exceptional.

Thank you for selling 1 Ngake Street, Orakei for us. We really appreciated everything you did behind the scenes and especially as we were selling from a different country. We valued your professionalism, transparency, support and trust and will definitely recommend you to others. The right decision was Unlimited Potential!
Glenn Carter & Sue Nicholson-Carter
I would gladly refer Karen and Mark. The experience received as vendors was professional, smooth and seamless at all times. We feel we were thoroughly updated throughout the entire selling process and presented with excellent information regarding the sale preparation and showcasing our house at its best. We would also like to thank the entire team at UP and the auctioneer for their considerate and kind treatment on auction day. We would be glad to work with you all again in the future.
