“They are such a formidable team, knowledgeable, highly ethical, patient and a joy to work with; we completely trust them.”
I first met Cheryl Crane 7 years ago when my husband wanted to sell his beaten up old 1920’s bungalow. Cheryl was instantly helpful and enthusiastic about the property which I wasn’t expecting. She was completely unfazed when it came to taking on the marketing and open homes, searching for the right buyer.
Now, 7 years later Cheryl and her partner Andre Coppell have just sold our home in Mt Eden (which Cheryl originally found for us) and her enthusiasm and professionalism is exactly the same.
Andre not only has a larger than life personality but is a man with tremendous industry knowledge. Together they’ve been such a formidable team, knowledgeable, highly ethical, patient and a joy to work with. We felt they’ve gone beyond the call of duty on so many levels long before we’d even listed our property on the market.
Throughout the marketing they kept us informed and guided us in every decision which led to a good auction result and selling under the hammer with a price we were very happy with. We completely trust Cheryl & Andre and have no hesitation in recommending them to any perspective seller.
“They were fun and engaging to deal with and exuded enthusiasm for my property!”
As a long term resident in Paice Ave, I have had the opportunity to observe real estate activity in the area for more than 30 years. When it finally came time to sell my own property I had to make a choice amongst the array of agents out there as to whom I wanted to represent my home. With some knowledge of real estate having been an agent myself long ago, I knew what a critical decision this was.
After interviewing agents I chose Andre Coppell & Cheryl Crane of Harcourts as my representatives for several reasons.
They had achieved a miraculous price in our street and I’d seen other high sale prices for homes in the area they’d sold which really stood out. They were local and had great knowledge about the neighbourhood which was priceless. The offered a complete package being agent and auctioneer backed by a larger organisation with international presence. Finally they were fun and engaging to deal with and exuded enthusiasm for my property.
Andre and Cheryl are far from your average real estate agents and this was evident in our dealings with them. It’s not hard to see why they sit in the top percentile of agents in their industry. We cannot be more pleased with their terrific service and outcome for us; we have no hesitation in recommending them to perspective sellers.
“We would whole heartedly recommend them to anyone who wants to sell their home and retain their sanity at the same time!”
We initially came into contact with Andre at an Open Home as potential buyers. He made an immediately positive impression with his enthusiasm and animation! After this initial contact, both Andre Coppell and Cheryl Crane were fantastic at keeping in contact with us and ensuring that we knew about potential properties on the market. We valued their input and experience so much that we actually asked them to come and see some other properties for sale privately to give us their thoughts and professional advice. We certainly saw them as trusted advisors as much as anything else.
So, when it came time to sell our own home, we had no doubts whatsoever about who we wanted to work with.
From the very outset of the process, we knew that we were in safe hands. As a duo, they have an amazing balance of attention to detail and efficiency with a sense of fun and energy. They complement each other brilliantly and for us they tick all the boxes.
During the sales process, we felt that we were a priority for them at all times and that gave us a real sense of peace, knowing that everything was taken care of and was running according to plan. It really was so much easier than we had envisaged and I think that’s very much due to the fact that they just took care of it all for us and took that pressure away. Even when the photographer arrived an hour early, Cheryl was on site with a broom helping us tidy up!
Cheryl and Andre are a dynamic team who not only get great results, but make the whole process of selling your home as stress free as possible. We would whole heartedly recommend them to anyone who wants to sell their home and retain their sanity at the same time!
“We can highly recommend this hard-working dynamic team, they are so incredibly passionate about what they do!”
Cheryl Crane & André Coppell were appointed by us to market and sell our Mt Eden property. We were initially drawn to their expert knowledge of our street and the surrounding areas. We had been particularly impressed by the high prices that they had recently achieved for their Vendors at auction.
Throughout the campaign, we got to know Cheryl & André well and we were confidently assured by their professionalism that the sale of our property would be a success.
From the outset, they worked together as a team, keeping us informed of the progress of the marketing at all times. Their commitment to us- the Vendors is commendable- and something that we had not experienced during our previously two house sales.
Our property attracted phenomenal interest! We were absolutely blown away by the numbers attending the Open Days- and our backyard was overflowing with interested groups on Auction Day!
Cheryl & André worked hard to achieve the perfect result for us- and we were as pleased for them- as they were for us with the higher than expected result.
We can highly recommend this hard-working dynamic team to any prospective Vendors wishing to achieve top dollar for their property, as they are so incredibly passionate about what they do!
“From the very start they went the extra mile and really worked hard”
After numerous approaches from other agents and companies we decided to list our Sandringham property with Harcourt’s Andre Coppell and Cheryl Crane as they were genuinely local and had been most straightforward, direct and realistic when they came round to assess our property. The advice they gave us on areas we could work on preparing the house for photos, open homes and sale was invaluable, and most importantly tailored to our needs and budget. Though they had sound ideas on what could potentially be done they took time to listen to us and consider our situation, this doesn’t always seem to be the case with other agents we have encountered. From the very start they went ‘the extra mile’ and really worked hard, even though they were selling a number of properties simultaneously we always felt we had their complete attention and focus when required.
The marketing, open homes and reports, auction and negotiating were handled very professionally and Andre and Cheryl were on hand at all times to explain the process and offer quality advice. During the short time our house was on the market (less than 28 days!) we were able to see how they work as a team, putting the needs of their clients first and playing to their strengths throughout. We were very happy with the results and would unhesitatingly recommend Andre Coppell and Cheryl Crane to sell your property, especially having now seen the often indifferent, wavering standards of their contemporaries.
“Andre and Cheryl did a wonderful job marketing and selling our home.”
From the first time we met there was instant rapport; we felt they were genuinely interested in us and our home and getting the best price for us. They were clear on their approach and how they liked to work with their clients and they followed through. They were always professional, but also very personable and easy to work with.
Andre and Cheryl gave us clear and informed advice on the marketing and presentation of our house. It was an intensive three week campaign with plenty of people viewing each week. Then they achieved the results we wanted at auction.
They have excellent sales and marketing skills and we particularly appreciated the feedback we got each week following the open homes. We felt their follow up with potential buyers was thorough and we felt informed and confident about what was happening which was important given we weren’t in Auckland.
We had confidence in Andre and Cheryl’s ability and the advice that they gave us. They saw the big picture, but also made sure that the details were looked after. Cheryl and Andre are an enthusiastic, committed and hardworking team. It was great having Andre as our auctioneer as he knew our property well and each of the buyers.
We are extremely happy with the outcome they achieved as we got well above the price we were looking for in the timeframe we wanted. We would have no hesitation in recommending Andre and Cheryl to others contemplating selling their home. They are a great team backed up by the larger Harcourts organisation.
“The sale price Andre & Cheryl achieved for me was simply outstanding!”
Deciding which agent and company I was going to engage to sell my property was an extremely important decision for me. My home was quite unique and I needed an agent that stood out from the crowd, someone who I felt confident would be able to market the home with passion and sales flair, and have the caliber to deliver a price not yet achieved in the area.
After deliberation over many agents I finally chose Andre Coppell and Cheryl Crane from Harcourts Eden/Epsom for several reasons.
They were genuinely interested in my property and what the outcome would be for me personally. They took the time to explore every aspect of the home and how to best go about selling its features and to which buyers. As locals they were extremely knowledgeable about the area and were passionate about it which I felt was important when talking to buyers.
What impressed me most was they really went the extra mile from start to finish, they were hands on in every aspect of the sale, making sure the marketing was done right, the presentation, photos were of high standard, open homes were conducted by both of them personally, and the buyers were looked after in every way leading up to auction day. They have many contacts in the industry and because of that I was delighted to feature complimentary on the front page on the NZ Herald Homes.
Andre and Cheryl treated me with the utmost respect and courtesy; they were extremely professional as well as friendly and personable at the same time. I have no hesitation in recommending Andre and Cheryl to perspective sellers, the service I experienced firsthand was number one and the sale price they achieved for me was simply outstanding!
I would like express my gratitude and thanks for the excellent job done marketing and managing the sale of 13 Royal Terrace, Mt Eden
I recently completed extensive renovations on the property and towards the end of the project was approached by several real estate companies looking to market the property. I was impressed with Cheryl & Andre’s high level professionalism, integrity, work ethic, and passion for delivering results. The 3 week marketing campaign was a huge success that brought high numbers through the open homes. Great communication throughout the process, sound and considered advice during the campaign. The auction at the Harcourts office was an outstanding success that achieved a sale price that exceeded all expectations. A great result! Thanks again,
I would certainly recommend you to anyone thinking of selling.
Just wanted to thank both of you for a very successful marketing campaign resulting in the sale of my property last evening. I appreciate the professional attitude you both displayed at all times and the honest and approachable manner that you had to the purchasers and to me.
I’m so relieved that what was a stressful process is now over and that the right person bought the property! This is due in no small part to your vigilance throughout and your ability to assess both the market and the prospective purchasers and to put the effort in where it was going to obtain the best result.
Congratulations on a job well done! You really are a credit to your profession.
Over the years we have moved around a little and bought and sold a number of properties in Napier and in Auckland.
We are therefore familiar with the sale and purchase aspects of NZ real estate, and the processes involved. Once we make the decision to sell we like to move on quickly, and understand what is required to get a result.
There have been some real estate deals that from our perspective have been less than satisfactory, and our advice to anyone would be so seek out the very best Real Estate Company & Agent possible.
After one meeting with Cheryl and Andre we decided to list with Harcourt’s and are now very pleased we did.
We could not be more pleased with the end result and the service which has been provided to us by Cheryl & Andre. We absolutely believe that Cheryl & Andre worked in our best interests at all times, and they have single handedly restored our faith in the value that can be obtained by using a great agent.
Obviously we will use them again in the future if the opportunity arises, and equally we would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone wanting to list a property with a very professional and honest agent.
