“Thanks for the great auction you conducted for us last week. We were delighted with the result. We appreciated you coming to view the property and explaining the auction process so clearly to us. We have no hesitation in recommending you to others”
- Kurt and Rosie Sorenson - 229 Avonhead Road.

“What a fantastic result for us ! We were blown away by the service. We received a pre-auction offer that was acceptable after only 2 open homes. The auction was brought forward and the bidding just went through the roof with 153 bids ! Lisa did an excellent job keeping up with all the bids and kept the auction rolling… thanks for all your help and for recommending auction as the way to market our home”.
- Paul and Gill Johnson – Taylors Avenue.

“The auctioneer, Lisa, performed her role in an extremely courteous and professional manner to achieve the very best result, my thanks for a job well done”.

Lisa competes in both the Annual Harcourts National Auctioneering Championships and the Real Estate Institute of NZ Auctioneering Championships which provides invaluable experience at the top level of the profession. Lisa appeared on New Zealand’s Mitre 10 dream home assisting the “Orange Team”
“We had the honour of having Lisa as our support person throughout the auction process. To say we were nervous, overwhelmed and daunted to be going on LIVE television in front of New Zealand was an understatement. The professionalism and support we received from Lisa was amazing, she went above and beyond to get us through such an emotionally charged event. Even when we stumbled on the bidding she guided us to a positive result. It was a relief to know we had Lisa on our team”

Charity auctions is a great way to connect the community and Lisa offers this service to any non-profit organisations. Waimairi Beach Golf Club, University of Canterbury Fine Arts department, Cure Kids fundraiser and the Christchurch Stands Tall – Giraffe Auctions are some her recent fundraisers.
