In all cases she has demonstrated a high level of experience and an unmatched knowledge of the current market. She has helped me achieve the best possible outcome and I'm sure that she will help you achieve the best price for your property as well!

Helen has the ability to think outside the square which gives her a greater scope with the way in which she approaches people and selling their homes. The help I received from her in selling my home was invaluable. Thank you!

She works with integrity, honesty and transparency. If you are looking for an agent that works hard and keeps you informed through the whole process Helen is the agent for you!"

Helen was highly recommended to me by a friend. It was an absolute pleasure in trusting her with selling my home in Forrest Hill. She amazed me with her professionalism and negotiation skills. I would recommend Helen to anyone looking at selling their home.
Yvonne Girmens, Forrest Hill
I was impressed with Helen's professionalism and have no hesitation recommending her services. Within 3 weeks my home was sold for a great price and throughout the process she kept me well informed in Indonesia.

Helen showed total professionalism and created a sense of urgency in her marketing approach. She demonstrated excellent market knowledge to us from day one. Helen is a straight honest communicator who is also a good listener. I would recommend Helen's services to anyone.
Jared and Natalie Mansfield, Campbells Bay
Upon meeting Helen we felt as buyers that we would want to deal with someone as friendly, direct and straight forward. With the added pressure of 4 month old twins in the house, Helen was always professional, supportive and understanding throughout our house sale. We never felt imposed or inconvenienced. We would use her again without hesitation.
S and K Jurgensen, Mariners Cove
We bought and sold our home with Helen. She went above and beyond in every aspect regarding the sale of our home. Her professionalism and the knowledge she has, helped make our sale as stress free as possible. I have highly recommended Helen to all friends and will definitely contact her again should we move.
Stephen and Tanya Parsons, Sunnynook
Helen sold our investment property with total professionalism and a sense of urgency. Throughout the campaign Helen demonstrated excellent market knowledge and was a straight and honest communicator which put us at ease. Through her experience and negotiating skills in a very short space of time Helen delivered us a great offer which allowed us to bid at an auction in the timeframe we required. I have no hesitation recommending Helen to anyone looking at selling their home.
Jared Mansfield, Campbells Bay
Upon meeting Helen I was confident that she could sell my home for the best price. She was positive and professional through the whole process, giving me regular feedback. I have no hesitation in referring Helen to my friends and family and will use her again myself.

We would like to thank you for your dedicated and personal impact into our house selling process. With you in charge we found it not stressful but friendly and easy. We would advise to everyone planning to sell their house to get in touch with you to get a professional opinion and an accurate performance as you have constantly shown us through our working experience with you.
Dean and Ella Fleming, Albany
Helen just sold our home in a 3 week auction campaign. We were delighted with the advice she gave us throughout the process, her total professionalism, her ability to listen and the care she gave us during the entire process. On auction day we were delighted with the sale price. Throughout the campaign, Helen kept us informed, was easy to deal with and worked for us to achieve the best result for us in timeframes suitable to our young family. We would recommend her and use her again. “
Jacqui and Gary Derbyshire, Olde Torbay.
Hi Helen I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for the huge effort you put in, to find buyers for my house in Forrest Hill Road (and you weren’t even the agent!). I got very used to seeing your number come up on my phone! I also appreciated the fact that you were always well organised, on time, and great at keeping me informed.I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone considering selling their home with you. You are a credit to Harcourts! Kind Regards Caryn McNamee
Carryn McNamee
Great Results Helen. Thank you for your professionalism, dedication and hard working values. Look forward to our next purchase.
Gary & Karyn Johnson
We bought our first home through Helen 4 years ago and we found her to be friendly, professional and upfront about everything we needed to know. Four years later and we just sold that same house via Helen and based on her excellent knowledge of the market conditions as well as her excellent marketing skills she managed to position our house at the correct price at the correct time in order to gain the maximum sale. Which is exactly what happened.
Murray & Kathleen Douglas
Just emailing to say a big thank you for all your expert advise and assistance in the successful sale of my late nana's house. You were fantastic, extremely enthusiastic and professional while also being sympathetic to our recent bereavement and the emotional impact of selling the home my grandmother had lived in for the last 50 years. We really appreciated your comprehensive analysis of the property market and our options regarding sales strategy. You patiently answered all of our numerous questions and were very open to meeting our requests, you made everything very easy for us and nothing was too much trouble. You also provided us with regular updates and kept us informed of feedback, communication was excellent throughout and we always knew what was happening and when. You worked very hard to ensure our property was seen by a wide market and achieved very high interest. On auction day turnout was high and everyone from Harcourts made a fantastic effort to ensure we achieved a very pleasing result. We would not hesitate to recommend you to others and will certainly look to use your services next time we are buying or selling a property.
Fleur McPaul
Words cannot describe how lucky we were to work with Helen Shaw from Harcourt’s Real Estate. I would highly recommend her to everyone. My wife and I were first time sellers and we were guided through the whole process with such care and professionalism from Helen. We were so new to all the contractual requirements and technical details but she never made us feel like we were inept. Helen understood the importance of listening to our personal needs and wants for the selling of our home and followed up on all angles possible to ensure we would be able to attain the sale based on our desired terms. She not only achieved a price well over our minimum sale price but was able to negotiate more than our expected price, all before going to market open home and to auction. She seemed to make the whole process “a piece of cake”. We were well informed, educated on the process and continues to follow up with us and we cannot thank her enough. I would agree with everyone else who has ever given Helen Shaw five stars. She gives 110%, is all about integrity and excellence, extremely detailed and patient and on top of this just a pleasure to deal with. I can’t imagine we would have gotten any better service from anyone else. When my wife and I are ready to buy a property, Helen will definitely be the first one we call as Helen is undeniably the BEST at what she does.
Paul & Sunny Dixon
We had been looking for a home in Milford for 22 months. During this time Helen was the only agent of the many we met who would call me regularly and suggest we look at homes as soon as they were listed and often prior to them being in the Property Press Helen’s patience perseverance and professionalism were always to the fore. Her understanding of the market and advice on when and how we should present our pre-auction offer I believe was instrumental in us being successful. Obviously when it came to selling our home we were happy to be guided by Helen. Again Helen’s leadership and advice were spot on and priceless. Enabling us to achieve a great price for our property in a very short space of time. After 22 months of searching Helen enabled us to buy and sell within 3 weeks in a very well informed and stress free matter. Thanks Helen. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone looking for real estate. Christine Winsborough
Christine Winsborough
Rob and I would just like to say a massive THANK YOU for the fantastic result at the auction last night. We have really enjoyed having you on board as our agent - you are amazing! You made us feel totally comfortable throughout the whole process, gave us great advice and you organised everything with such dedicated professionalism. The outcome exceeded any expectations we had, and we would have no hesitation in recommending you and the Harcourts team to anyone wanting a fantastic result when selling their home :) Thanks heaps, Leanne & Rob Scott
Leanne & Robert Scott
We met Helen 2 years ago while looking for a new family home.. We were immediately impressed with Helen and her incredible passion for property. After listening to what we were looking for and understanding our criteria, she worked tirelessly contacting us with multiple options for our consideration. Having subsequently purchased through Helen, the decision to have Helen market and sell our current property was an easy one. Throughout the marketing campaign we found Helen to be proactive and positive. Helen was in constant communication with us keeping us informed of all activities and progress. The result on the day was fantastic! Jayson and Adriana Hayde

I recently asked Helen Shaw to present my house for sale here in Glenfield. She was one of two agents who kept in touch with me after I bought the place I've just sold. It was a roll of the dice as to who got the job but I am now very sure that I made the right decision running with her. From the get-go Helen has rolled her sleeves up and got stuck in resulting in a very professional and thorough advertising campaign and subsequent successful sale at auction. There was no time of the day or night that I couldn't call her for advice or to make requests and everything that she said she would do was done quickly and efficiently. Thanks also to Fiona, Stephen and others From Harcourts who completed the package. Very professional. I am most grateful. Have a good day.
Mark Anthony
Helen has sold two properties for us and we have also bought from her. We are extremely happy with the results. Helen is very professional and very astute when it comes to property matters. She never tries to push us into signing anything but advises well what she thinks the market will do and exceeds our expectations every time. I value her intelligence and her genuine interest in finding the right result for sellers and buyers. I would highly recommend Helen for all real estate matters on the Shore."
Nicholas & Catriana Cory
Just wanted to say a big thank you for your professional, informed and focused service during my house sale. I really appreciated your attention to detail, your consultative and effective marketing strategy and the personal touches, advice and support you provided throughout the entire process. The entire process was well structured, your tenacity in working for me and your sense of humour were much appreciated and ensured an effective result which to be honest exceeded my expectations.

Julia and I would like to say a big thank you to Helen for the great result in selling our house on auction day! We would highly recommend Helen with out hesitation. Helen has run a well planned campaign, from helping us stage our house, through to selling at an early auction attended by many buyers. The selling price of our house was within the marketing appraisal proposed at the beginning of the campaign and was above our expectations. We asked Helen to get us an acceptable pre auction offer, bringing the auction forward and allowing us to successfully bid on a property we wished to buy. Helen also helped with the bidding process for the new property with training, a bidding strategy and assisting with bidding by phone. Due to Helens organization and good advise it has been a stress-free campaign. Next time we buy or sell a property Helen would be our agent. Many thanks Julia & Dan Guy.

To whom it may concern, I recently asked Helen Shaw to present my house for sale here in Glenfield. She was one of two agents who kept in touch with me after I bought the place I've just sold. I interviewed several agents but I am very sure that I made the right decision running with Helen. From the get-go Helen has rolled her sleeves up and got stuck in resulting in a very professional and thorough advertising campaign and subsequent successful sale at auction. There was no time of the day or night that I couldn't call her for advice or to make requests and everything that she said she would do was done quickly and efficiently. Thanks also to Helen’s team who completed the package. Very professional. I am most grateful. Have a good day. Mark Anthony

We have known of Helen for years through our family and when the time came to sell our property we knew she would be the right person for the job. She was efficient and enthusiastic and our house sold within weeks. Helen marketed our property well and we were very pleased with the outcome. We really appreciated her constant updates during the process via phone calls and weekly marketing reports. Helen then helped us to find a new home to suit our growing family. I really liked the fact that Helen didn’t just sell our property but also helped us to find a new property. Helen is very enthusiastic and driven and her positive attitude is amazing. I would have no hesitation in recommending Helen services to anyone, she will sell your house for the right price then help you to find a new one!
Mark & Melinda Allatt
Hi Helen Just a short note to thank you for the excellent result achieved on the recent sale of our Forrest Hill Property.Harcourts, Milford, were able to provide a much wider exposure of our property to the market, than that afforded by our previous agent, and our choice of you to act on our behalf was indeed a good one.The achievement of nearly $100,000.00 above our top bid received at auction only five months earlier, speaks for itself. Market prices in the area during that period did not rise by this amount.. Congratulations, because the property sold for what we really thought it was worth at the time we approached you, and you delivered on that. Your enthusiasm, professionalism and aggressiveness (the right amount of course) serves you well. We feel you give the right guidance....fence the property so the demarcation lines are clear, and becomes attractive to a wider range of buyers leave the old garage door as is, because replacing it would not bring added value to the property.Helen, we especially liked how you communicated with us throughout, both clearly and in a timely manner. This enabled us to make informed decisions and to move quickly when necessary.We will be recommending you to our friends and wish you all the best for the future. Kind regards
Christina and David Garrett
To whom it may concern, It is my pleasure to write this letter of recommendation regarding my experience working with Helen Shaw during the recent sale of my block of units in Takapuna. This is the third property I have sold using Helen. I have always found Helen very open, personable and she has a good knowledge of the market and market trends. Helen created a marketing plan that exposed the property well in the marketplace both online and offline. With this particular property, having 3 separate tenancies, it was imperative that viewings and open homes were undertaken in a structured and organized manner to respect both tenants and buyers. Helen excelled at this getting a huge number of buyers through with only positive feedback from the tenants. The auctioneer, Andrew North was extremely professional, and his obvious experience in conducting auctions and negotiation was immediately apparent. Helen ran a successful campaign, creating an auction environment with multiple bidders for Andrew to work with. I recommend Helen to friends and family who are looking for a hard working professional agent. Mike Page MPAC Property Ltd

Helen recently sold my home for me in old Torbay; in that difficult period where the market changed from 1st October 2015. Helen listened to my requests, but gave helpful input to make sure we had the best marketing plan for my property. Whilst it did not sell at auction, I am pleased to say it sold very soon after at a fixed price. Again Helen’s vast experience and her ability to read purchasers assisted in making my deal come together. She kept me informed throughout the marketing campaign and I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone else wishing to sell their home. By selling my home I was able to bid on the home I wanted to buy, only 4 days later – which I managed to buy at auction. A good result all round. Thanks Helen. Kind regards Alice

We chose Helen to sell our property at auction after a careful deliberation and selection process and our decision was justified. Everything went smoothly from day one and on auction day her working in tandem with Andrew North was a pleasure to watch. In our mind, it was definitely teamwork between those two that produced a result we were very happy with. We thought Andrew was outstanding as auctioneer. In my line of work I come across a lot of agents and Helen is up there with the best of them without question. She works tirelessly and will never tell you something just so that you can hear it - she was very honest and up-front with us during the marketing and sale process and that was very refreshing. I would easily recommend her. Nick & Anne

Reference on Helen Shaw Recently we made a decision to sell one of our rental properties and as part of this we talked to a couple of sales agents from Barfoot & Thompson and Harcourts. Both agents were very helpful and enthusiastic about selling our house. However, we choose to go with Helen Shaw being very impressed by her energy, ideas and infectious positive attitude. Helen, who was a good listener, gave us an indication on the likely price range our house would sell for and was highly motivated to promote and finalise a sale prior to Christmas (only 6 weeks away when we signed up with her). Helen guided us in terms of house presentation to optimise the final price and she promoted our property across Harcourts agents and externally through a variety of publications, electronic media and fliers. After the first weekend of ‘open homes’, amazingly, she presented us with a pre-auction offer and facilitated a price that was accepted by both parties. We were delighted with the closing offer that went through the auction process. Helen did exactly what she said and kept us informed, offered useful suggestions along the way and was very helpful in every way, providing us, for example, with contacts for cleanup work we needed to complete before listing the property and put us in contact with an excellent staging company. Given our experience, we would highly recommend Helen…and will certainly engage her next time we have a house to sell. Joe and Edith Wallace Murrays Bay

Helen Shaw recently acted as selling agent during the sale of our property in Totara Vale, Auckland. We were out-of-city owners so needed Helen to handle & arrange all the required activities to be carried out on-site & locally to complete the sale by auction.She carried out all these actions impeccably & with excellent professionalism, including great enthusiasm, communication skills & attention to detail.Helen expertly guided us through the entire five week process, keeping us right up to date with regular reports of inspection comments, questions etc.She answered all our questions immediately & knowledgeably.Following the successful auction, Helen continued the great communication as to next steps to follow.We would highly recommend Helen to any property sellers, as a very competent agent who will work very well in their best interests.Doug & Linda
Doug and Linda
I've worked with Helen now for a number of years, and every time she comes up on top! On my last house she got me top dollar, I had 3 cash buyers, a bidding war... and an amazing result! Thank you again. Helen is professional, honest, a straight shooter, no mess, get it done agent! I love working with her, she's fantastic. Looking forward to the next one.
Jason Bonham
You made the purchase of our home 7 years ago, absolutely easy. When we decided to sell, your support and guidance through the whole process has been invaluable. From the stream of text messages and calls, to helping us with our nerves on auction day. We really appreciate all the effort you have put in to helping us sell our home and allowing us to move on to our next adventure. Thanks Helen.
Desma Houghton
Helen sold my Castor Bay Road property via auction. I contacted Helen because she is an ex colleague of mine and I admire and trust her explicitly. As a fellow real estate salesperson I saw how hard Helen worked, she has a tenacity seldom seen in this industry. Helen is highly intelligent as seen from the letters after name, she has a quick brain and is always thinking of ways she can get the best price for her vendors and also for her own satisfaction, a job well done. She looks at the big picture from all angles. Helen persuaded me to use the auctioneer she knew would get me the best price, to see him working on the day of my sale, I saw first-hand how he never gives up, squeezing every last dollar out of buyers, as is his job, this is what you are paying for. Helen doesn’t just get your listing, whack up a sign, put your property online and wait for someone to buy it. She is in contact with you every step of the way, phoning you after every open home, giving you market feedback and suggesting little things you can do to get the very best from your property. Because Helen has been selling properties on the North Shore for 13 years she has a huge depth of knowledge of her area, a database of real buyers and satisfied vendors who she keeps in contact with.
Susan Goddard
When selling a Milford unit on behalf of our 94 year old mother, having Helen as the estate agent turned out to be an inspired choice. Her marketing, local bylaw and property knowledge was both impressive and reassuring. The speed at which she facilitated and organised all the finer details makes her highly recommended.
Ray Lannie
I found Helen to be very helpful in all aspects of my house sale. She made sure all relevant documentation was completed and kept me up to date at all times. Helen is professional as well as being a lovely person to deal with. I would highly recommend using Helen’s expertise when selling your real estate and wish her well for the future.
"We are so glad we chose Helen to sell our first home. She has guided us through the process and has been there every step of the way to support us. Helen is an expert saleswoman, and she marketed our house across online, print and social media to reach a wide variety of buyers. Helen’s expert approach and enthusiasm paid off for us on auction day, where we had multiple bidders and achieved a great price. "
Ryan and Wendy
We worked with Helen to sell our home in Takapuna. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout the sales process, and made everything as stress free as possible. I would happily recommend Helen to anyone who is looking at selling their home, or purchasing within the area.

Hi Helen I am writing this email to thank you for the effort you put in while selling the property 1/104 Sylvia Ave, Northcross on my behalf. We were referred to Helen by a family member who has worked with Helen for many years. Helen’s market knowledge, advice and expertise were invaluable in setting up the sale of our investment property. Helen worked very hard for us throughout the entire campaign. She was in regular communication and provided thorough updates, progress and feedback after viewings so we knew what was happening. Our property was broadly marketed over many platforms to reach a wide variety of buyers. We have no hesitation in recommending Helen as a very professional agent who gets the job done and creates an exceptional client experience in the process. Thanks Helen Aaron Song
Arron Song
Thank you Helen for the extra mile you went in to in order to sell my mother's property. Over the years I have been involved in buying four properties and selling six, and without doubt you are the best agent I have dealt with. I felt totally comfortable with your advice and honesty, and safe in the knowledge that I wasn't being told just what I wanted to hear. I have no hesitation using you again in the future and am quite happy to recommend you to friends and family. Many thanks Helen Peter Charles

I’m fortunate to have met Helen three years ago when I bought my Albany apartment. I had no hesitation in contacting her to sell the apartment this year. As expected Helen continued to be extrememly professional. She brought a friendliness to her approach that made me feel relaxed and confident in her ability as an agent. She was straight up and always positive. Helen worked hard. She explained everything along the way, including the legal and ethical standards of her role, so there was no doubt where I stood at any given moment. She is generous too. I found Helen dependable and I have no hesitation in recommending her. I would not consider going to anyone else for property in Auckland as she worked hard for me in selling and buying.

Having bought and sold with Helen Shaw six years ago, I had no hesitation of working with Helen again. Helen is a no-nonsense, straight-talking, workaholic! Helen updated me regularly throughout the campaign, with feedback I found invaluable when setting my auction reserve. She made the whole process easy from start to finish. I have no hesitation in recommending Helen to any prospective client and cannot speak highly enough of her. She has integrity and is a true professional, a 100% stand out in the Real Estate industry! Janie Stone A very happy client

10/10 for Helen. I would just like to thank Helen for all the help she gave me whilst I was searching for my first home. It was an extremely stressful time losing one property after another but with Helen by my side giving me advice and encouragement it gave me the push I needed to keep pursuing properties. Her knowledge of the market was top notch and her determination to find me a suitable property was outstanding. Thank you Helen.
Very knowledgeable and friendly agent. Buying a house is stressful at the best of times, Helen made me feel at ease throughout the process. I had been looking for a property for many months and found my dream house. Very happy! Thanks Helen
Fantastic job in 10 days. This is the 5th house Helen has sold for me and I value her experience, professionalism and work ethic. I listed on Friday and sold within 10 days for a price I was extremely happy with.
Fantastic result and professional, personable service. We used Helen due to her recent impressive results selling similar properties in our area. She did not disappoint. Her knowledge of the market, straight talking style, suggested sales strategy and execution were all invaluable and made the entire process straightforward. Highly recommended.
Top agent, top result! We work with Helen to sell our property. Helen was knowledgeable, gave constructive feedback and sourced the right experts to present our property to its best. I recommend Helen if your looking for an expert to guide you through the sales process.
excellent sale. Thank you to be a real estate agent and be come a friend. She is absolutely wonderful to work with. It’s like having a friend on the “inside” that is working for you. She really care about hers clients as well as the community and neighborhood she live in.

Professional and good communication. Helen sold 2 houses for my wife and I, I found Helen to be very proficient and easy to deal with. We were very happy with her professional manner and found her to be very knowledgeable with the market and approach to the selling of the properties. Helen is certainly an agent to consider!
Stephen and Jospehine
Helen found us the perfect first home Helen helped us find the perfect first home when the market was at its most difficult for first time buyers. After some unsuccessful auctions, Helen recommended we try a different technique at the auction and it resulted in us being the highest bidder and securing our home! Helen has an excellent knowledge of the market and let us know as soon as a new house was available to view. This was incredibly important when houses were selling so quickly, frequently prior to the auction date. I recommend Helen to anyone looking for a house. Her knowledge of the area is a real asset and her expertise provides you with the confidence you need when making such an important purchase.
Super professional. I would recommend the additional experience and knowledge Helen has, in every aspect of the real estate market. You will get the very best advice, to encourage you to prepare your property for the best possible sale. She uses her abilities to guide you in all aspects of selling your home. She sets up a marketing program, that suits the situation to ensure the best buyers are viewing your property. She will actively follow up and provide feed back. She is always a step ahead , and the experience she has shows. She is always available for you - the client.
Property sale. Helen was the listing agent for my home in Milford, and within a month of it being listed, she had negotiated a successful sale for me, having 4 offers presented to me in a multi-offer scenario. Helen worked hard with regular open homes, additional private viewings and always kept me up to date with feedback etc. She also worked really hard to facilitate a mutually satisfactory agreement between the successful buyers and myself in terms of getting all the conditions satisfied really quickly in order for me to move forward with my plans to relocate. At all times Helen was professional, friendly and reliable, and I have no hesitation in recommending her to future, prospective clients.
Sale of Family home Helen was the agent for the sale of our family home. Our situation involved multiple family members. Helen successfully managed family expectations and personalities as well as the ebbs and flows of the sale process. We appreciated her pragmatism.
Excellent agent Helen helped myself and friend purchase our first home. From the get go Helen worked hard to find us a something we were after. Helen is an extremely hard working agent, and will do all she can for her clients. Much recommended.
Sooo competent! We were referred to Helen after selling successfully with another excellent Harcourts' agent out of town. Helen showed us several properties, getting a gauge for our needs. She also let, me know about several others for us to check out with drive-by's. It was really attentive and informative, but business like and zero pressure. Not sales-y or gushy, just genuinely helpful. I'm a bit fluffy and gushy myself and get embarrassed if I am wasting someone’s time, but not with Helen, she is one level-headed lady. Then, whoosh, we found the house. In two days she helped us get ready to buy - three family inspections, two building inspections, all questions answered, her own sales team called in where required, support at the auction, and good follow up. Also, the most comprehensive pre-purchase inspection that I've ever been part of - she checked everything for us. What a thorough agent! And now a friend. I'd definitely use Helen again, to buy or sell. As the old saying goes, if you want a job done well, ask a busy woman, she'll do it right first time.
No BS with HS! Helen is a hard working, efficient, no-nonsense real estate agent. She knows her stuff and has a great network of people in the industry to assist when needed. Helen is straight talking, tells you how it is and gets the job done.
Outstanding result from a top agent Helen was brilliant to work with when we sold our much-loved family home. She is a consummate professional and made the whole process so easy and stress free. The advice she provided was spot on and the marketing campaign successfully attracted a good number of genuinely interested buyers. Helen ensured that every question from potential buyers was answered promptly so that when we went to auction, we were in the best possible position to sell. We would definitely recommend using Helen to sell your home as she is hard working, honest and open and she exceeded our expectations in service and with our sale price.
Perfect agent. In a challenging time to purchase a new home through a Covid lockdown, Helen was fantastic at arranging access / viewing's and managing what could have been a stressful process to a wonderful outcome. Would definitely recommend
Helpful and friendly Helen’s one of the best agent. She is very helpful, easy to communicate with good work.
Selling our Family home of 50 years We approached Helen for her advice and guidance to navigate through the process of selling our parent's home of 50 years. After losing our mum 4 years ago and now with our dad moving into care, the decision had to be made to sell the much loved family home. With Helen's local market knowledge she presented her recommended sale options for our consideration. We were very impressed with the high level of detail Helen provided to us. We were kept up to date every step of the way from ensuring the necessary paperwork was completed and lodged, as well as keeping us up to date from every Open Home feedback. Helen was easily available to answer any questions we had. Thank you Helen for being alongside us through this journey which lead to a successful auction last week.
Professional, friendly and helpful Helen kept in mind my parents age and made the selling process as easy for them as she possibly could. She was always very professional and kept us up to date with what was happening. Helen has a friendly and helpful nature and her years in real estate showed with the information she provided throughout the selling process. She would be a great person to help you buy or sell your property.
Birkenhead sale I chose Helen to sell my house on good advice and was very pleased that I did so. Helen was very positive and gave excellent recommendations about how to prepare the house to put it on the market (I had lived there for 40 years). I found Helen to be realistic and direct in our dealings so I was very happy with the sale process itself and with the outcome. She worked hard for the sale and was also helpful after it took place and before settlement. The sale was undertaken with minimum stress to me.
Just too great no mater we are selling or buyer, Helen has been always able to address our need or achieve a great result.
Two property purchased in the last 18 months through Helen Helen is very professional, warm, an excellent communicator, honest and has wide networks to draw from as both purchasers and sellers. We will continue to work with Helen in the future.. .
Successfully sold my mother's property and now working with Helen on selling my own property Helen achieved an outstanding sale price for my mother's property in Milford. Such was my level of satisfaction with Helen's performance that I have now engaged her to sell my own property. Helen is a hard working agent who has good instincts on what is required to ensure the seller receives an outstanding outcome. Helen is a good communicator who keeps you well appraised on developments as well as feeding back relevant information on what the "market" thinks of your property.. Helen is a 5 start agent and with her depth of knowledge and work ethic will always deliver the best outcome for the seller. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Helen to any prospective seller.
Helen will work for YOU Helens years of experience, her connections, skills and knowledge gave me the confidence I needed to put the marketing and sale of my property in her hands. I followed her advice and went with quality home staging. The property looked stunning for the first open home which due to the imminent COVID lockdown, happened to be the last. My stress was alleviated as Helen sold the property on the eve of our first lockdown. Now, how good is that! What you know and who you know are major factors in choosing an agent.
Top agent two thumbs up Helen is a hard-working fantastic agent that gives her all all the time.
Straightforward process Helen is honest, responsive and easy to deal with. I purchased a property from Helen last year and there was no ambiguity at any stage of the process. She always picks up the phone and you can expect a quick answer. I am happy to recommend Helen to anyone looking to purchase or sell their property in Auckland.
Helen Shaw, outstanding results This is the second family home Helen has sold of ours and once again she exceeded our expectations. Her professionalism and commitment were outstanding and she sold our house for more than we expected. We highly recommend Helen to anyone buying or selling.
Excellent Results Helen was very determined, reliable, knowledgable and patient in assisting us with buying our first home and I would highly recommend her real estate services for anyone looking to buy or sell with success.

Helped us find the house we had been looking for Finding a new house to buy is time consuming and really hard dealing with so many different agents and companies. We loved the frank and honest conversation we got with Helen so gave her our brief and asked her to find us a house. The great thing about working with Helen is she can work with multiple agents so all we had to do was just turn up and she would line up the properties for us to view. Will never use another agent again and couldn’t recommend Helen highly enough.
Hard work with integrity Helen worked extremely hard to sell a lovely home but with features particular to limited buyer groups. Helens persistence and patience pays off with a good price and topped it off by finding us a new home in an exceptionally tight market. We absolutely recommend Helen to sell your home if you are after a hardworking agent with integrity and passion.
Pierre and Tracy
Best agent in the North Shore Helen has a wealth of market knowledge and works hard to market and present properties in a professional manner. She helped us find our home and worked for quite some time to get us across the line - this was really appreciated in a tight market. She also works well with other agents and agencies and is obviously well respected in the industry.
Gregor and Louise
Best agent ever Helen is a hard-working dedicated real estate agent that gives 100% all of the time. A lot of agents on the Shore are very poor communicators and struggle with basic abilities, like answering their phone. Helen if busy will return your call as soon as possible otherwise answers her phone most of the time. Can’t say enough good things about her work and ability to sell property. 100% recommend.
