"What an incredible journey! A sale. A purchase. And a cat shot to facebook 'open home' fame. Thanks for everything Anna you have been fantastic and I wouldnt hesitate to recommend you to friends and family. A huge thanks also for the beautiful gift!"

"From our initial meeting with Anna, we knew we had a great salesperson. The pride she took in marketing our property with fantastic photos and the extra mile she went in the Marketing Video she created was above our expectations. She didn’t over communicate or under communicate – it was a great balance from start to finish.
If you are looking for a genuine, down to earth and professional salesperson – we highly recommend Anna!"

"Having moved to Auckland 22 years ago for work reasons and now transitioning into retirement, I decided to return to live in Hamilton for my retirement years. With the challenges of highly specific buyer requirements and living out- of-town, I wanted a house purchase strategy that would avoid making needless trips to Hamilton to view properties with shortcomings that were not apparent in website advertising. I was fortunate indeed to have Lugton's offer me Anna Smart’s services as a buyer’s agent, at no additional cost to me or to a potential vendor. Having one person with whom to work simplified things and I could not have had a better person than Anna Smart. She delivered in every way. Most of all I found Anna to be honest and a great person to work with. She intelligently listened and took on board what I was saying to build a clearer picture and common understanding for us both of the right property. Finding that property took time but there was never any pressure from Anna to settle for anything that I would not be happy with in the long term. It was helpful and cost saving for me that she had an 0800 number I could call and, if needed, leave a message, knowing that she would phone me back in good and reasonable time. With Anna keeping a watch on new listings, checking out properties with potential, and reporting back to me on suitability, the three or four trips I made to Hamilton for private property viewings pre- arranged by Anna were all worthwhile. Viewings were not limited to properties listed by Lugton's. Having Anna do the bidding for me at 2 auctions distanced me from the emotional pressures of the auction room. We missed out on the first because the price climbed unrealistically but we were successful in the second. She has also supported me in post auction tasks. Thank you Anna. Should circumstances arise that require me to move from my new home, I would be entirely happy to work with you again, as my buyer’s agent or for marketing a home. And I confidently recommend you to others to work in either capacity for them."

""Thanks Anna for expediting the sale of my apartment in Garden Place so quickly. Your warm, professional and genuine approach was particularly appreciated. Right from our very first communication you explained the sale process thoroughly and did not try and obtain the listing by giving me an unreal expectation on what the property was worth in the current market. I was keen for you to be in control of the sale as I felt you were the best real estate agent in the area. I had faith in you from the beginning and you certainly lived up to my expectations. I feel that you truly have gone beyond the general duties of a real estate agent with thorough follow ups, reporting, social media exposure and always being 'on top' of potential buyers. Also exhausting all avenues to find that buyer. This was particularly appreciated due to me living in a different country. It was fantastic when you called and said, ‘We've got an offer on the apartment!’ I was extremely very pleased with all you did for me. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anyone wanting to sell their home in the future. You are truly a STAR. Thanks again Anna"

"As first-home sellers, working with Anna was perfect for us. It was easy to build a great relationship that felt relaxed and open, and we could see the hard work that Anna was putting in right from the beginning. Communication was really clear and two-way - we always understood what was happening and when. Her approach to marketing our home was fresh and positive, and we felt very comfortable through the entire process. We would happily recommend Anna to anyone looking to sell their home.

We approached Anna to help us start our rental portfolio and find the perfect investment property. We were new to the Hamilton market and area and Anna therefore ensured we were looking in the correct areas and at houses that would suit great tenants. Anna was professional and very friendly, she was great at hearing what we wanted and fantastic at sourcing houses that ticked our boxes. Anna went out of her way to find us properties, take us through them, and answer any questions we had. We would highly recommend using Anna to find your perfect property whether it be your home or a part of your rental portfolio."

"Anna has been amazing to deal with. She sold our house for us and madly hunted to help us find our new family home. Great results for both. Totally recommend her for anyone buying or selling."
- S & C Sayer
"We recently used Lugtons and Anna to sell our house and after meeting with us to discuss our needs, Anna came up with a well thought out strategy which resulted in us getting beyond our expectations for our property. Anna was so friendly and easy to deal with we can't recommend her highly enough."
