About Chris Marshall
Chris’s values for success in the Real Estate Industry are People, Patience and Integrity, ensuring that people are given options guidance and information to make the right choices. Over the 15 years Chris has been selling Real Estate she has consistently been one of the top selling agents for the Paraparaumu office, which is attributable to attitude and a conscientious work ethic. Chris has many years experience in sales, recruitment and having been an owner operator of a number of successful retail businesses; Her results are proof of what she stands for. Negotiation training started on a South Island farm for Chris, coming from a family of eight you learnt from a young age how to achieve a win win situation.
We first had the pleasure of meeting Chris at an open home she was hosting. She was so genuine we relaxed at once and started to tell her that this was the first time in 26 years we had sold, leaving the North Shore, and were looking for a new home . Chris asked us many questions about our likes and dislikes..what type of house we had sold and what we now thought we needed and where, and what we could afford. She personally took us to several types of homes just to give us a "feel" for them and a comparison. At no time did we feel pressurised to buy, but our heads were buzzing with ideas! She promised to keep in contact and this she did, finally coming up with this house that we finally bought.
I respect that you must always have 'the sellers' best interests top of mind, however I found you to always be professional, helpful and with great personal integrity.
Whether you are buying a home for yourself or investment property, it is always a well considered decision and contains an element of stress as you navigate through the recommended requirements and mortgage approval process.
Chris's personal approach and attention to making as painless an experience as possible made this one of the most enjoyable purchase experiences I have had. There was never a feeling of any pressure and I felt a very trusted relationship was established. The helpfulness didn’t just stop after the sale was complete and I was really appreciative knowing Chris was more than willing to help with the matters that often arise after you take possession.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Chris as someone other agents could role model their behaviour on and will provide an excellent service whether you are selling or looking for a home.
Chris sold my house when two other agencies had tried. Chris was very professional and was clearly keeping in mind that I was the client keeping me informed at all times. Chris was very patient with what turned out to be a lot of back and forth and a long negotiation time frame and I never felt pressured to lower my price. A great result from and I would highly recommend Chris to any seller.
To Whom It May Concern,
Three years ago my husband Geoff and myself purchased a home in Raumati South and the agent was Chris Marshall. From the moment we met Chris she made us feel at ease and in good hands. She was personable, approachable and instinctively knew when to step back and when to give us advice. She was likeable and yet maintained her professionalism at all times. Consequently when it came time for us to resell our home we knew that Chris was the agent we wanted to deal with once more. This time we were the vendors and once again she was great to work with. She kept us regularly updated about any prospective buyers and any feedback from Open Homes. Chris is a person who appears unflappable and takes everything in her stride which puts the vendor at ease during what could otherwise be a stressful time. Chris is always careful to get her facts right and will check with the vendor if prospective buyers come to her with questions. We were fortunate that our home sold relatively quickly and we were pleased with our first offer but Chris continued to market our house keenly and another buyer came along and Chris negotiated an even better sale price for us which at the end of the day almost covered the cost of what we had negotiated to pay Harcourts.
I would recommend Chris to anyone wanting to sell their home, and thank her for her professionalism and expertise. Janet O'Halloran
