Here's what some of my clients have to say -
This is to recommend Doug Futter to anyone who is thinking of selling their home, or even buying a home. From the start Doug made things as easy as possible. Taking photos, explaining what we needed to do and discussing price.
Within a week we had sold our property. The then helped the buyer and us right through to settlement date even going as far as to organise with the buyer for us to stay in our property for an additional 3 weeks until our new property settled.
Doug delivers leaflets all over Manurewa, walking and chatting with people which is hoe we found Doug. Nothing seems too much trouble and this is why we are happy to recommend sellers and buyers to get Doug involved to get a happy result.
K & T McIntyre.
Doug Futter has been a real great Agent for us when we wanted to buy or sell our properties. He explained all the ins and outs about buying and selling our properties and helped us all the way.Thanks Doug may all your other properties go as well as ours. K & R Brown.
It gives me great pleasure to furnish this testimonial on Doug Futter of Century 21, Manurewa.
I first met Doug around nine years ago when I was on holiday in Auckland and was thinking of moving there from Australia, so was looking at houses to get an idea of what was available and price ranges. When I returned to Australia, Doug took the trouble to telephone me in Brisbane to keep in touch and see how my plans were going for my move.
When I did eventually move to Auckland and wanted to sell my home to return to Australia, I contacted Doug, among other agents, to see what their strategy would be and what price I could expect. I decided to sell with Doug as he was down to earth, did not beat about the bush or "bullshit" as some of the other agents had done. I personally was not keen on the auction method of selling homes, nor open homes, but Doug persuaded me that this was the way to go in the Auckland market at the time. He explained his marketing plan in simple terminology, didn't use "jargon" and explained what price range we could expect.
The first open home mid-week was on a cold, wet, wintry day but with Doug's marketing there was a good turnout, and subsequent open homes were well attended.
On the day of auction a fairly large crowd had gathered and bidding started immediately and almost at the top of what we had hoped the maximum price would be! Bidding continued at a fairly frenetic pace and we eventually reached a price far higher than either of us had hoped for and with minimum stress.
The bottom line is - listen to what Doug has to say about marketing and selling your property and you won't be disappointed at the end result!
Thank you Doug for all the extras you have done and still do to make the seller and buyer happy. We are very happy that you sold it for us. Mike & Ludo.
Thanks for selling our house, Doug. I was impressed with your dedication to your profession. It was one of the happiest moment of my life during Auction day and seeing all the support of the Century 21 Manurewa Team. Above All,Thanks for the Peace of Mind. Kind Regards, Marta C. Staines
"My wife and I have just sold our house by Auction. The integrity and professionalism shown by our real estate agent Doug Futter from Century 21 Gold Real Estate was second to none and we have no hesitation in recommending him to any seller out there."
Thanks Doug, Val and Eddie Guldbrandsen.
"It was a pleasure working with Doug Futter in the purchase of our new investment property. He provided all the information we needed prior to making an offer and maintained excellent communication throughout the process of purchase. Enthusiastic, honest and easy to talk to. We would highly recommend him and Century 21" Katrina Bratton
"Doug was referred to me by a friend who spoke very highly of him, and once I started working with Doug, it was apparent why she thought so.
Doug has been extremely patient throughout the entire sale process of my property, right from initial meetings through to final settlement. From the very start I felt comfortable discussing my options with Doug and he has always been nothing but transparent, up front and easy to deal with. At any time I felt like I could call Doug with questions and concerns and he always made time to help out and come back to me quickly.
Doug always went the extra mile with recommending tradespeople and going to meet them at the property – something that was over and above his duty but something that he was happy to help with. His approach was very personable and I found him to be extremely reliable and trustworthy - I would recommend Doug without any hesitation."
"...Thank you very much for your wonderful success in selling the six Manurewa rental properties we had listed with you. We are delighted to have sold them all and are very satisfied with the sale prices achieved.
In addition we very much appreciate your commitment and professionalism in getting these properties sold with the minimum of fuss, while having to liaise with property managers and tenants etc.
I am happy to recommend your services and we will definitely use you again in the future." Tahoe Property Investment
" We cannot speak highly enough of the way Doug took us through every step of the selling stages with his friendly advice and information on how everything was progressing.
As we all know selling your home can be somewhat stressful but because we were kept so well informed Doug managed to have us quite relaxed about the process.
Our thanks to Doug and the company" The Boyds
" This letter serves as reference for Doug Futter who we recently picked to manage the selling of our residential property in Takanini.
His presentation and professionalism was noted on our first meeting as was his no nonsense approach. His honesty and knowledge of the market made this seem a relatively easy sale. He communicated every step of the way and listening to our needs and following them through meant the fantastic outcome that we wanted was achieved.
Our family has been dreaming of this move for a long time and Doug has made this dream a reality. We would have no problem in recommending Doug Futter to any of our friends and family and we would certainly revisit them if they were to need real estate services in the future." Vendors - Waiari Rd
" I recently experienced the selling of my Deceased Mothers Estate.
After many appraisals from different Agents, I chose Doug Futter of Century 21 Real Estate Ltd, and would rcommend him to anyone to steer you through the process of selling property. He was very diligent and thorough over the six weeks frame for marketing the property before going to the Auction.
We really appreciated all the feed back in person and writing he gave after each Open Home and was a great help with advice on the process of selling the property.
We chose to go to Auction as we felt it was the best option for selling an empty house.
I wouldn't hesitate in having him sell property on my behalf again.
My wife and I have just sold our house by Auction. The integrity and professionalism shown by our Real Estate agent Doug Futter, of Century 21 Gold Real Estate, was second to none, and we have no hesitation in recommending him to any seller out there.
Thanks Doug. Vendors - Val and Eddie Guldbrandsen
Recently Doug Futter sold our premises at 3 Marr Road, Manurewa by Auction.
Doug's knowledge of the local market and area were right on the mark when it came to selling. I can't speak highly enough of the effort Doug and his team put into selling the house. The communication we got back on a regular basis was brilliant.
Both my wife and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Doug selling your property.
Richard and Gayle Coe
We met Doug about three years ago when we wanted an assessment of our house for selling. Of all the agents we contacted, Doug came across as the most genuine and down to earth of them all. Although we didn't go ahead at the time, Doug kept in touch through his regular email newsletter. So when we decided this year to sell, he was our obvious choice. Doug provided invaluable advice during the marketing process and even liaised with contractors to ensure we were able to keep to the sale date. He has proved his worth by the successful sale of our house and recommend him whole heartedly to all who wish to be successful in selling.
All the best,
Petita and Bryson
