We had brief contact with Jenni in the mid 2000’s we were very impressed with her. So when it came to the time for us to sell our property, we had already decided to specifically request her assistance. 
Jenni is very professional, has a caring manner and a positive personality. She communicated well with us, keeping us up to date with all proceedings. We felt we were completely able to put our trust in her knowledge and experience.

Regards Fred and Patricia Bradley



We have had the pleasure to have dealt with Jenni on two separate occasions in the last year. The first time was when we were purchasing a property that Jenni was marketing.  During this process we found Jenni to be highly knowledgeable, professional and her interpersonal skills top notch.  Emails and calls were answered promptly and all requests done without any fuss.  No following up or chasing were required.  It was done first time and done correctly.  This made the whole process relatively straight forward. Needless to say, when we were looking to sell our property, the first agent to come to mind was Jenni.  Again we were highly impressed with the way the marketing campaign was run and felt no stone was left unturned to find a suitable buyer, which Jenni did. We have no hesitation in recommending her to others.

We bought our home through Bayleys Orewa, Jenni being the salesperson. We were very happy with the whole process and found Jenni to be very professional, friendly and honest. We thought her negotiating skills were fantastic, leaving both the buyer and seller feeling happy with the result.
 
Our circumstances changed and we decided to sell our lovely home. We didn’t hesitate to contact Jenni again, having had such a positive outcome when we bought it through her. Jenni found the perfect buyer, and our home was sold within 3 weeks of going on the market. Once again, dealing with Bayley’s and Jenni in particular, has been a wonderful experience.
 
Thank you Bayleys

We have recently sold our house thanks to the efforts of Jenni Finlayson of Bayleys Real Estate at Orewa.
 
Ours I a million dollar plus house and we selected Jenni as our agent because of her success in selling other million dollar plus homes and having the clientele for such sales.
 
Jenni is always well presented and a most pleasant lady to deal with. She gives 100% effort and beyond as the sale took place over the Xmas holidays and she gave up life with her family over Xmas to finalise the sale.
 
The sale of our house was a difficult one as the house was constructed of steel framing with insulclad cladding. The difficulty was with the reputation some insulclad houses had with banks, solicitors, real estate agents putting prospective buyers off buying such houses because of some leaking due to defective construction.
 
No such problem existed with our house but it was tainted by the reputation of the minority and made Jenni’s job more difficult despite positive Building Inspector reports.
 
Selling a house can be stressful but Jenni’s regular updates and supportive communication took the stress out of the event.
Thank you Jenni for a wonderful job caringly carried out.
 
Regards,

It is with pleasure that we recommend Jenni Finlayson from Bayleys Real Estate to act as agent for both selling and purchasing property.
 
Jenni recently approached us regarding listing our property after a number of years trying to sell through various other agencies. Within days of listing Jenni was able to bring a number of parties through our property culminating in the sale of our home within one month of listing.
 
Jenni has made the sale process (purchaser viewings, negotiating etc) completely stress free and we are delighted with the expediency and fair price of the sale.
Jenni’s continued motivation for our cause has also ended in us being able to purchase a new property in our most desired location and price bracket which has made the whole process of selling and buying an absolute delight.
 
We have no hesitation recommending Jenni as an honest reliable and motivated agent.

The experience of selling my home and buying another was a relatively stress free one made so with your steady guiding advice.

Once I found the home I wanted, you worked tirelessly to market and sell mine in a matter of weeks, so I could make an offer on the property I wanted.
All steps of selling and buying were explained fully and regular updates on the marketing were comprehensive.

I am happily ensconced in my new home and may not need your services for some time, however, I will be recommending you to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.  Thanks again Jenni.

Client Testimonial 3 April 2012

 
Jenni Finlayson marketed and sold my property in Orewa earlier this year (2012).  Throughout the nine months she consistently promoted the sale of the house through advertisements and open homes.  Her photography was fresh and appealing.  Jenni is an amazing person who takes the time to understand her client's needs and always remains positive and unfaltering in her service.  Her professionalism is utmost. 

I would definitely recommend Jenni Finlayson to others.  She is an asset to Bayleys Orewa.

"We had listed with another Real Estate Agency as they are local agents. We thought that since they are local, they would be the best people to sell the property. For four weeks they come back to us with one excuse after another as to why people are not interested in our property. Total number of people that came and looked at the property in the 4 weeks was 2. We got so frustrated that we ended the contract with them.
We listed with Jenni and a day after, she already brought someone over. She also organised the other agents in Bayleys office to have a look at the property. The result of that is that we received four offers within the second week of listing. We signed the best offer and now we are just looking forward to moving to our new home.

Jenni was very professional the whole time. She kept us up to date with everything that is happening. She is a very hard worker and gets the job done with minimal stress to us. I will definitely recommend Jenni and Bayleys to my family and friends."

"To Whom It May Concern
TESTIMONIAL FOR JENNI FINLAYSON OF BAYLEYS OREWA
I met Jenni Finlayson at the open home of a house I eventually put an offer on. While that deal fell through, I was impressed enough with Jenni’s warmth and honesty that I engaged her to sell my house.  
Jenni was at all times a joy to deal with. She explained all my options in a straight forward way and gave excellent advice on the marketing and presentation of my property.
In my search for a new house it felt like I met every agent on the Hibiscus Coast. These agents ranged from pushy to disinterested, and this reiterated to me that I was lucky to be working with Jenni.
 
Once my house sold, Jenni went above and beyond to help me find a new property and I went on to purchase a property that she brought to my attention. If it had not been for Jenni I might have overlooked the charms of my new place. It was slightly unloved, but with Jenni’s experience and expertise, she helped me see the potential and now that I’ve moved in I can’t imagine why I considered living anywhere else.
Jenni has a warm personality and is intelligent, efficient and competent. She kept in constant contact while we worked together on the sale and purchase of my properties, via both phone and email. I appreciated Jenni’s flexibility; she would often meet me at short notice and after hours which, being a working mum, I particularly valued.
Jenni will be the first person I call should I decide to list again. I highly recommend her."

"To Jenni Finlayson

After two summers of marketing our home with no success we took it off the market.  Several weeks later Jenni approached us on behalf of Bayleys and suggested that we list with her.  After careful consideration we decided to give it a try. 

Jenni was very fast and efficient with organising new photographs and advertising.  Before we knew it there were several serious buyers through our property.  Six weeks on, to our surprise and pleasure, Jenni had a serious offer on the table.  Altough it was far from our expectations Jenni and the Bayleys team worked behind the scenes for several days and brought us a more realistic offer and after several more days and lots of meetings with Jenni we finally reached an agreed price and excitedly allowed her to put up a sold sign.

During this entire process Jenni was professional, honest and approachable.  She kept us well informed and even during the negotiation process she still continued to bring potential buyers through and presented us with quality feedback on a weekly basis.

We have now purchased another home and are thrilled with the outcome.  We thank Jenni for achieving something we had given up on and would not hesitate to use her again in the future. 

Thank you Jenni for your dedication and attitude through out the process."

re: 14 Chesterfield Way

I should like to thank Jenni Finlayson for facilitating the sale of the abovementioned house.  From the time I met Jenni I found her conduct to be at a very high professional level.  All arrangements made to have prospective purchasers view the property were adhered to, both individually and at open homes.

I was kept fully informed of results at all times, and her efforts to conclude a sale were appreciated.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Jenni to anyone I know who may be looking to buy or sell a property in this area.

Yours faithfully

re: Jenni Finlayson
We first met Jenni when she sold a property to us in 2008.  We found her to be pleasant and knowledgeable so used her when we wanted to sell the very same property a couple of years later.
 
We found Jenni to be very likeable with an easy going nature and a sound real estate agent who was very conscientious. She applied herself well to the task of selling our property, by keeping us fully informed and also dealt very professionally with the tenants that were renting the property.  She was also able to make the deal happen by enabling some inventive thinking to produce a solution acceptable to all parties.

I would certainly use Jenni again and recommend her to others.

Kind regards
John Clough

re: Jenni Finlayson

We would like to thank 'Bayleys Real Estate' for recently selling our Waiwera properties.  Our biggest thanks must go to Jenni Finlayson.

On her first visit to us, she was so confident that SHE would be able to achieve a sale for us (we had been on the market with another real estate for ten months without success!).  We didn't hesitate to entrust our properties to her. 

Jenni set up a good package deal and gave helpful suggestions as she took us through the process.  During this time we never felt any 'sales pressure' and she was willing to go out of her way to check any problems we put to her.

We will certainly be recommending Bayleys/Jenni to any of our friends that may be selling/buying in the future.

Thanks Jenni for reassuring me when my 'stress' level was high! (Pauline)

Sincerely
Pauline Friend and John Saville
