I have used Diane twice to sell my homes in Howick. Her sound advice, planning, timing and knowledge of the local market cannot be beaten. Diane is a true professional, highly reliable, honest and trustworthy, and gives excellent feedback. Diane has a practical approach, always with a pleasant manner, and I have found her extremely helpful at all times, both prior to and after settlement. I thoroughly recommend Diane as a Real Estate Agent if you're intending to sell your home.
Diane was reconmmended to me by a mutual friend and it was obvious why from our very first meeting. Diane listened and took on board what I was saying and how I felt. She was professional, offered very sound advice and has a great depth of local knowledge. When I asked her opinion she gave it to me but never once did she push her own opinions on to me. She not only helped me with the sale of my property but she also dealt with all the aspects of my purchase of an out of Auckland property. When there was a major illness in my family at just the wrong time and I had to be free to deal with the consequences she dealt with all the aspects of the sale and purchase in my absence and kept me up to date. Diane was invaluable to me and I recommend her to anyone buying or selling.
From the moment I met Diane, I knew she would work for us. Diane is hardworking has an excellent manner and was very focussed on selling our property. She went the extra mile for us and above and beyond the call of duty. Diane knows her market well and is completely trustworthy and reliable. Her positive can-do attitude took a lot of the stress out of selling our home. I highly recommend her to anyone considering selling their property.
Diane Brew's advice and assistance was exceptional, she went the extra mile in assisting us to find resources in a short period to enable the property to be presented at it's very best for marketing and auction day. It had a wow factor thanks to the house staging facilitated by Diane. Her intelligent approach and hard work at open homes and follow-ups needs to be commended, it made the marketing and sale of our property a lot easier for us as we live in Tauranga. We were well consulted and kept up to date with progress by her.
We would like to thank you and your team for the excellent result from the auction of our property at 53 Wayne Francis Drive. It has more than exceeded our expectation and has left us in awe of your company's effectiveness. The team is very professional, easy to work with and achieved a fantastic result for us, better than our wildest dreams. The marketing package offered was at a reasonable cost and very effective evidenced by the over-crowding at the onsite auction with in excess of 100 attending on the day. A combination of a well presented property, great photography, well thought out promotion and excellent open homes certainly made the difference. This along with your sales staff access to clients resulted in a fantastic result for us. The organisation of the auction and the auction itself was excellent. The auctioneer did a great job. We enjoyed listening remotely by phone as we could not attend. We were very comfortable leaving the auction to your team because of the trust and credibility developed with you.

Diane quickly developed a sensitive and caring professional relationship with my 84 year old mother and guided her gently each step of the way. She kept in contact with my mother and with my husband and me, and most importantly respected my mother's wishes. I believe that Diane would work with her clients in the same way - no matter what age or stage they are in their life.
Diane made us comfortable at our open home and took time with clients. We were very fortunate to have her as our agent. A very special person, she made us laugh along the way. Thank you Diane.

Diane provided excellent service in the purchase of our first home. She went out of her way for viewings/inspections and was upfront with us through the whole process, and kept us informed. Thanks for all her help.
M Hinton & V Smith
Diane was professional in all she did, also most conscientious, caring and helpful.
The service we received from Diane from the outset of looking at the property, right through and after the sale went through, was second to none. Even while on holidays Diane still returned calls and made things happen. I would have no hesitation in employing Diane's services if I was buying or selling again in the future. Thank you very much.

Diane was a fantastic guide and mentor through the whole sale process. She worked tirelessly to ensure the property and I were both well-prepared for sale. Diane's professionalism, depth of experience and caring personality made this a pleasant experience with a good outcome.
I found the dreaded prospect of selling a house a very easy, pleasant experience. Diane was there to answer all queries and at all times kept me informed of how the sale was progressing. I recommend First National highly as professional and helpful at all stages of the sale.
Diane was always available to answer our many queries and we particularly appreciated her readiness to take calls, even late at night. She also made arrangements for us to view the house while she was away, even at short notice. She has a jovial disposition and came across as very honest, which greatly helped when settling the transaction. Lastly, the Howick office, especially Catherine Simpson, was always helpful with all the necessary paperwork and responded in a consistent, timely manner to all our needs (solicitors' arrangements, documents, payment receipts, tenants' notices, etc.). We are truly grateful and wish them all the best.

My partner and I found Diane to be very professional. She listened to what we wanted and encouraged us to push forward with the property we purchased. We both didn't think we could stand a chance, but Diane reassured us in a very stressful time. Diane is very understanding and kind. It was a very favourable outcome with less stress than expected.

I asked Diane Brew to sell my property because she had previously sold one for me. At all times she was most professional and positive. She always followed up queries and went that extra mile. She made herself available at any time. I was impressed with the team work shown by First National instigated by Diane and was happy to have her represent me.
