Tell me your story

Janet McGillivray

We are very excited to have Janet return to UP after living and working for 4 years in Hangzhou China with her husband Neil. 

“The contrast of the language, food, culture and a population of 6.8 million people in the city where I lived made every day very different from life in Auckland. The experience has however made me particularly aware of the Asian way- a learning experience that I know will help me selling real estate here in Auckland.” 

Prior to Janet’s recent foray in Asia she successfully sold real estate for UP in the Mt Eden Epsom Remuera areas for 5 years. 

Having bought 2 children up at local schools in Epsom and lived there for many years, UP Mt Eden office was an easy choice to make and an easy place to return to after life in Asia 

With a great eye for detail and a well organised approach Janet brings a consistent “can do” attitude to real estate 

She works hard, is honest and brings a refreshing direct and open style to all she does. 

Janet has been a primary school teacher and more recently had her own textile trading company buying fabrics from Asia and Europe to sell to manufacturers and retailers in New Zealand. 

“I have always loved the team approach and inclusive style of UP with the high standard of client and customer care. We work hard to get the best result for everyone. We really do want you to “tell us your story”!

Client Testimonials

  • We were very satisfied with UP's performance in the sale of our property. We had a tight time frame to get the property ready for sale, on the market and to auction before Christmas. Janet McGillivray gave us good advice about how to present the property for sale, and was proactive in organising many of the practical aspects of getting the property ready for sale and managing things during the marketing period. We greatly appreciated this as we are both working and couldn't have achieved the time frames without Janet's help. The property sold soon after auction and we were pleased with the professional advice we got from UP both before and at auction. The number of people attending the auction and the number of bidders was above our expectation. Janet and UP worked hard to get us offers from bidders at the auction and several new offers. Throughout the whole process Janet stayed in close contact with us and kept us fully informed of developments.”
