Sellers Stories

I feared selling my Orakei house would be a complicated and even scary drama, yet Lindi guided it through a thoroughly logical process leading to a sale by auction at a good price. She provided me with very helpful property comparisons and I was impressed with her knowledge of the market. Calm and professional throughout, she gave me sound advice and regular updates on marketing progress. I confidently recommend Lindi’s services.John.

To whom it may concern. We are happy to recommend Lindi Miller who acted as the sales and marketing consultant on our purchase in February 2015. Lindi demonstrated to us her commitment and knowledge of the property she was selling.

We were well informed on what was, a complicated cross-lease agreement.  Lindi understood all of these complexities, stepping us through and researching our queries. Her determined and thorough approach gave us the confidence to buy at auction. Thank you Lindi.

We decided the time was right to sell our rental property in Auckland recently. As Harcourts managed it, I approached them regarding selling it and they recommended Lindi as our sales consultant. Lindi helped organise some minor repairs, painter and home staging etc, as we do not live in Auckland and therefore we were not in a position to be able to do this ourselves.  Lindi also went the extra mile and helped out with a few other extra bits and pieces which was most appreciated. 

Right from the start of the process she kept us informed. We had 3 open homes and viewings by appointment, and after every open home/viewing she gave us a thorough report on all interested parties. She followed up rigorously and worked very hard in order to achieve the best outcome for us. The auction process ran smoothly and the property was sold. We were extremely happy with the final result. We can’t speak more highly of Lindi, her dedication, professionalism and the results she achieved for us.

Lindi was very professional in managing the selling of my house. She discussed the whole process with me, gave me a timetable of what would be happening with regards to advertising, photographs, open homes, legal requirements etc and more importantly, delivered on every point. The people on her team, photographer, back office staff, auctioneer, all played their part competently.

The open homes were  huge success with buyer interest from the very first one. After each one Lindi gave me an immediate report by mobile. I also received written reports on progress to date. She referred prospective buyer queries to me and relayed the answers back to them. Nothing was too much trouble for Lindi. Due to her expert guidance the sale process went very smoothly and my house was sold for an excellent price.

I am pleased to recommend Lindi as a person who can be trusted to leave no stone unturned when undertaking a sale. I really appreciate what you have done for me, especially with dealing with my tenancy so diplomatically. Thanks for everything.

Lindi Miller was appointed by my sister and I to sell our father's apartment in Parnell. We discussed and agreed an approach to the sale of a unique apartment. Lindi recommended a sale by auction with a month long print and internet marketing campaign. Lindi also took charge of presenting the property for sale in the best possible condition. She arranged a stylist to furnish the apartment and a photographer to capture the furnished apartment in the best possible manner.

The campaign was very effective in attracting attention to the property. Over 60 groups visited the property when it was open for inspection, and the auction was well attended with prospective bidders. The auctioneer Robert Tulp briefed us thoroughly on the auction process, and worked with us to set an appropriate reserve price.

The property was sold at our target price to one of these buyers. My sister and I are very satisfied with the outcome. We envisage the buyers will have many happy years living in the apartment.

I recommend Lindi very highly. She knows what she is doing. She takes charge of the process. She kept us fully informed at every step. She has an excellent manner of communication  keeping the buyers and vendor fully engaged.

In spring we were faced with having to sell our home at short notice. Having lived in the area we were aware of Lindi Miller's high profile. After meeting Lindi we decided that we wanted her skills to effect a successful sale. She was on time and able to answer all our questions in a no nonsense manner that displayed her thorough knowledge of the area. We agreed to a plan and were stunned and delighted to sell quickly and well above current CV. All this in a market called 'the worst real estate market in history'.

Lindi promised us hard work and perseverance, but we believe it was her overall professionalism that won the day. If you are considering selling, we recommend Lindi Miller as the best agent. Lindi is certainly someone whose skills you want on your side. After all, if you list elsewhere you will be competing for buyers against Lindi's formidable marketing.

Lindi completed a very successful sale on my property at 49 Rautara Street after four weekends of open homes. I engaged Lindi to market the property, because of her 'presence' in the area. Although we had never met, I felt confident that she was keen and efficient. I fully appreciated the following: Lindi listened to me on our first meeting and I was able to state my expectations, without any pressure.

The selling process was clearly explained. I was kept fully up to date after open homes both verbally and in written reports.

I felt Lindi constantly gave me information that was realistic. She was extremely considerate. I highly recommend that sellers should engage Lindi to sell their property. I feel I have gained a friend.

Well, this market was a bit of a roller coater, but your persistence paid off. I am thrilled with the work you have done for us. When the going got tough you really kept going and that is all we could have asked for. You always came up with the appropriate advertising which took it to the next level. I was more than happy with your initiative and ideas. It worked.

I am very happy to recommend you to prospective sellers for a real estate salesperson with initiative, integrity, a person who strategically covers all bases and knows she has done all to give the best result possible.

Lindi has worked for us over a number of months. She has managed to sell the property not once but three times during this period. Lindi has worked tirelessly, patiently and with integrity throughout our association with her. I have no hesitation in recommending her services.

We selected Lindi Miller to market our property in the Eastern Suburbs. We wanted our property to be marketed with style and enthusiasm, which is what we got.

Lindi has a talent to present properties and ours looked fantastic.

Our result was, SOLD in a market which was extremely challenging and a testament to the work Lindi did. We got the best price, not the fastest sale. A great result. We would highly recommend Lindi Miller to sell your house. She knows how to present a property and works very hard for her client to get a sale.

I am happy to recommend Lindi Miller. We had been trying to sell our house from 2006 with other agencies with no result, then approached Lindi as we had seen her successfully move other properties in the area with good results.

We found Lindi to be extremely hard working, honest, pragmatic and very determined, and with a great knowledge of the local market.

Her communication with us was great, and she was always available to talk or pop around. We never had to go through an assistant. Lindi achieved a great result for us and we would happily recommend her to any prospective vendor if they are wanting to engage somebody who personally puts in all the hard work, and more, and knows what they are doing.

I was happy with how you managed the sale of my property in Paora street, Orakei. You managed the whole process very smoothly and efficiently, and I was more than happy with the outcome. An important part of the process were the facts that you kept me up to date with, the market feedback as well as the purchasers responses throughout the whole event. It is easy to see that in the current real estate market your grit, determination, professionalism, along with your outgoing personality, are the keys to your success. Wishing you all the best for your future, and thanks again.

Throughout the 4 weeks leading to the auction you were professional, extremely hard working and sincere in your dealings with both myself and prospective buyers.
Having bought and sold many properties over the last few years I found it so refreshing to have someone work so tirelessly on my behalf.
Throughout this time I felt confident that you left no stone unturned to bring about the desired result, which of course we did on the day of the auction.
Again Lindi, thanks sincerely for a great result.

Having recently sold our house through Harveys, I found Lindi Miller to be professional and helpful throughout all negotiations concluding in a successful sale at auction.
Lindi's integrity, honesty and attention to follow up resulted in a sale and price beyond our expectations.
I have no hesitations in recommending Lindi.
Thank you.

The sale of my property was completed one day after the public auction.
Throughout the period Lindi conducted herself in a thoroughly competent and professional manner and displayed an obvious tenacity to complete a successful sale.
I would not hesitation recommending her services to any person who may be contemplating the sale of a property.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for the successful sale of my property.
I was impressed with the way you worked so hard in the 4 weeks prior to auction demonstrating lateral thinking in overcoming the short comings of the property which worked wonderfully.
You regularly reported back to me providing helpful interpretation and insight into the overall interest shown while on the market.
I will certainly seek your help next timeI am in the market and have already recommended you to others requiring your services.

I would like to personally thank you for your assistance whilst purchasing a new home earlier this year.

I found you most professional throughout our real estate dealings and I enjoyed your refreshing manner and marketing style.

I would not hesitate to contact you again in the future should the need arise and would happily recommend you to any other potential vendors or purchasers in the market.

Kind regards,

We are happy to recommend Lindi Miller.

As keen vendors, we have done our homework and contacted several real estate agents from different agencies before signing up with Lindi. Although not in real estate as long as other agents, comparing to other candidates Lindi showed a very high level of integrity and professionalism, friendly and hands-on approach.

During the whole process, advertising, market monitoring, and sale itself Lindi was consistently meeting and surpassing our expectations. She kept us informed about the potential buyers, feedback she was getting at open homes and in general kept us informed about anything relevant to us.

During the 4 weeks while we were waiting for the auction Lindi worked very hard on getting as many people through the house (presenting several offers), keeping in touch with them and following up on all leads. Although she had few properties to sell at the same time we felt she was investing a lot of time and energy into selling our property.

And, what is most important, the result was great. We sold our home at auction and we are very happy with the price.

We wish all the best to Lindi and would like to recommend her to anybody interested in selling or buying a property. She already won the hearts of our friends and neighbours.

Dear Lindi

I would like to thank you so very much for the tremendous effort that you put into selling my home in Remuera.

I certainly appreciated the open homes that you held for me weekly and the written reports following the weekend’s activities. Throughout the sale process you maintained a strong level of communication with me ensuring that it was fully informed of market activities and buyer’s interests.

Your professional behaviour, honesty and lovely personality was assisting at such a stressful time.

I would have no hesitation to suggest to others to engage you to sell their homes and as you are already aware I have already done so.

Lindi, thank you again.

Over the last few years I have tried unsuccessfully to sell my property on two separate occasions. I was unimpressed and frustrated with the agents I had used and eventually withdrew the property from the market.

In October with some reluctance, but with some necessity, I decided to try again but this time I wanted the best agent I could find.

I did considerable homework, got recommendations from friends/workmates/the web etc. and finally drew up a shortlist of 6 agents from the majority of the real estate agencies.

I then interviewed each one and it immediately became obvious who the stars were. I was left with two women , one gave an exaggerated value for my place to get the business, the other was more realistic and at that stage not prepared to put a value on the property.

The honesty and professionalism of Lindi Miller made my decision easy and it was a decision that I have never regretted.

Lindi then went into action and there was no stopping her for the next 4 weeks. She managed to get more interest in my property than I could ever have imagined and come auction date she was feeling confident and I was feeling terrified.

The day dawned with torrential rain and I was certain no one would turn up. I arrived back at the house at 1:30pm when the auction started and was unable to get in. There must have been 30 plus people in my lounge.

The auction was textbook stuff, Lindi was spot on with the bidders and the place sailed way over reserve. A dream result!!!!

I would thoroughly recommend Lindi Miller to anyone who is serious about selling a house. Lindi’s professionalism, integrity, honesty and the energy she commits to her work would be hard – if not impossible to match.

Many thanks Lindi Miller.

Dear Lindi

Just a note to say what a pleasurable and hassle free experience you made the sale of my house in Point Chevalier.

Your enthusiasm and attention to detail (especially the presentation) made the outcome and price rise to my expectations.

Thank you.

To whom it may concern,

I have had the necessity of buying and selling several homes in my life and it has never been I process I wanted to repeat in a hurry. However, my experience of working in partnership through the auction process with Lindi Miller has altered my view.

When it comes to selling your most valuable asset, the first decision is the most crucial, “who do you trust to dedicate themselves to deliver optimal results?” I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Lindi.

From our first telephone conversation and subsequent meeting I was impressed with Lindi’s honesty, commitment, knowledge and energy. On assessing the property, she identified who our market would be and explained the process that would achieve the best possible outcome. She put her energy and expertise into a marketing programme that successfully brought that market to our auction and most importantly, achieved a sale on the day.

I had heard many negative comments regarding the auction process, but decided to trust Lindi’s judgement, experience and expertise. This proved to be well founded as the numbers who attended the sale, especially in so called ‘flat’ market, astounded me. This result was only achieved by Lindi’s hard work, professionalism and negotiating skills. I had complete confidence during the process and on the day, that everything possible had been done to achieve the best possible market price.

I found Lindi Miller to be a person of integrity and dedication and when I am next in a position to sell a property, my first crucial decision will already be made, I will be contacting Lindi and trusting her advice.

I have been involved in real estate, buying and selling, and doing up houses for the past ten years. During this time I have met dozens of real estate agents, and worked closely with many of them. There have been however, only three names I have ever recommended when requested. My referrals have been based on integrity, honesty and professionalism, and I have felt that those on my very short list were strongly represented by these characteristics.

I am happy to add Lindi Miller to this set of names. I have dealt with Lindi both as a purchaser and a vendor. Her attention to detail, follow up, drive and professional style make her stand out from others.

I have no hesitation in recommending Lindi and I am sure to be in contact with her in the future.

With much appreciation for your work

I am writing on two accounts; one to sincerely thank Lindi Miller for her dedication, determination and old-fashioned hard work that resulted in a very successful sale by auction of Nihill Crescent on Saturday 26th November.

Secondly, Lindi behaved at all times in a very professional manner and was highly efficient in all her dealings with us. Her local knowledge and awareness is an additional asset.

However, I actually think the most important point I would like to convey is to thank Lindi for her achievement in carefully, cleverly and persistently assembling a group of determined buyers who helped us achieve an outcome that certainly exceeded our expectations.

I would warmly recommend Lindi to any other prospective sellers or buyers in the Eastern Bays.

Alex Reedijk      2b Nihill Crescent, Mission Bay


It is with great admiration we highly recommend Lindi for all your realty matters. Time and again Lindi has consistently applied herself above and beyond our expectations. She clearly understood our property requirements and made every effort to meet our criteria to the letter. She is professional, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, instills confidence, and sets an excellent standard.

Lindi is always just a phone call away, always available, and will respond promptly with an answer she has diligently researched. Lindi has also made available to us her relevant industry associates and experts when we have needed specific queries or tasks resolved.

Lindi has assisted us with both purchasing and selling property, which she does with skill and confidence, and always with a smile.
