Dear Nick
Thank you for the thoroughly professional way you managed the sale of our property at 58 - 60 Jutland Road, Takapuna. We very much valued your guidance and skill in marketing this property along with Adam Curtis and Damian Stephen, despite the challenges and uncertainty leading up to the General Election.
Adam was invariably very personable, communicated effectively and followed through on his promises. We found him to be perceptive and enthusiastic, informing and guiding us as appropriate. He showed initiative and diligence in all respects.
Damian has a wealth of experience, both direct and vicarious. We were very appreciative of his willingness to meet with us to share his knowledge and assist us in making informed future property investment decisions. His openness and various anecdotes were instructive and enlightening.
We have very much appreciated the efforts of each team member and will have no hesitation recommending Bayleys Commercial, North Shore to friends and colleagues. Each team member reflects well on Devereux Howe-Smith Realty Limited.
We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Yours sincerely

Allan & Jill Crayton-Brown

Subject: Excellent service by Adam Curtis
Afternoon Nick
I hope you are well. I just wanted to take this opportunity to advise you of the excellent service we have received from your agent Adam Curtis.

Adam was instrumental in finding new premises for our Takapuna retail shop on the corner of Huron street and Lake Road. His professionalism and dedication putting together negotiations with the landlord Richard Burton was very impressive.
Adam then worked tirelessly on securing a long term lease for our Silverdale Hospice retail shop at 10 Silverdale Lane, Silverdale. In order to get this agreement over the line, it required a large amount of negotiation by Adam with the landlord and existing tenant who was most problematic. Adam’s tenacity, commitment, and dedication secured an excellent result for all three parties.
I have been most impressed with Adam’s capability and initiative. He is clearly an asset to Bayley’s and I am writing to acknowledge the great work he is doing. He is an excellent representative of your firm.
Thanks also for your continued support.
Have a great Xmas.
Kind regards Gary

“It took less than a week from the first discussion with Adam regarding the sale of one of our commercial properties to settlement, we told him what we wanted and he took care of everything, he was incredibly efficient and an absolute pleasure to deal with, the service he provided was excellent and we are very happy with the result, without any hesitation we would unreservedly recommend Adam.”

It was a pleasure working with Adam through the purchase process. We appreciated Adam's ability to really investigate into the underlying issues that came with the purchase. He was able to break down all the crucial matters and provided concise information to how each issue could be resolved. During his dealings he was very understanding and displayed a high level of integrity. I look forward to working with him again in the near future.

I highly recommend Adam after his successful completion of our commercial property sale.  I found him to be extremely efficient, and he closed the deal for us with record speed, including negotiating some difficult issues with the purchaser.  I found him to be a person I could trust and very honest in his dealings.  Adam will be my first choice for any property sales in the future.

“I have been working with Adam over a period of months towards the purchase of a suitable investment property.

Right throughout Adam kept on top of things with prompt response, advice and updates on required information. Nothing was a problem-all with a balance of friendly help combined with sound business advice. Most importantly, Adam is a good listener; after initial clarification of our requirements, he did not come up with any unwanted suggestions. It is no easy task to fit a specific requirement but Adam managed to do this-and all in a buoyant seller’s market!

Integrity is a hallmark; when making a recommendation or answering a query, Adam if necessary consults widely with colleagues to ensure he comes up with consensus advice or opinion; most important for the investor who does not generally have all the facts to hand.

Bayley’s agents work to some extent as a team; and after some difficult negotiations the result for my company was a great buy. At the same time Adam seemed to do his best for his client to reach a satisfactory outcome.
As if all this was not enough, with co-operation of the team, he then within only one week, found a suitable new tenant.

Naturally it follows that we can highly recommend him.”
