"We were very impressed by Kim's dedication to us during the sale of our Auckland property. As Kiwis living abroad it was difficult for us to oversee all the things that needed to be done in preparation, but with Kim's help from the get go we always felt we were in excellent hands. She communicated with us regularly and gave advice and assurance throughout the process, that ended with a very successful outcome! I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone."
Julia and Mike Nowell --- 2nd time customer
My son and I first met Kim when she was acting as selling agent for the property we were buying. She was very charming but she ensured that her client had the maximum price. I contacted Kim as we had been impressed when she was acting on the other side.
She came to our first meeting amazingly well prepared with a daily sales timetable and a marketing approach. This was just as well as the Christmas close-down was imminent.. Within days she had produced a buyer from her contacts, brought forward the auction date and within this shortened timescale produced other buyers who bid up the price to a very satisfactory level.
Result. My son made a profit after owning the house for less than a year. The marketing message devised by Kim was aimed at attracting buyers and she certainly succeeded. It is a pleasure to do business with Kim. She keeps the client in the driving seat while doing all the work. She is very knowledgeable about Auckland real estate and the best methods to attract and stimulate buyers.

Kim is a real estate agent with integrity. She gave thorough reporting on the current local market and the open homes. She made the process transparent and simple to understand so I could make decisions. I was happy with the result. Kim demonstrated her skill and expertise in all the many aspects of the sale and I appreciated her calm manner. I felt safe in her hands; she is a gem in the field. Thanks Kim.
Maureen Sole, Ellerslie
This is the second time we have sold a house through Kim. There is a reason why we keep coming back. Our property was unique and appealed to a very select portion of the market. Once again Kim assisted in the packaging of the house to enable its strengths to be emphasized in the marketing campaign. She always had the house well presented for open homes. She was tenacious is following up prospective leads and showed great determination in her marketing efforts. It was that tenacity that allowed her to sell to a couple who actually had come to open home of a neighboring house!
Her feedback was excellent. It allowed us to make important decisions as the sales campaign progressed.
She was superb in dealing with our tenants, who also found her a pleasure to deal with.
Aaron Martin, Glenfield --- 2nd time customer
We recently sold our property in Ellerslie using Kim as our agent, we have previously had a rather bad experience with real estate agents and so were not the easiest people to please, Kim completely rose to the challenge, putting us at ease and making us feel confident that we had made the right decision in working with her. Throughout the process we were well informed and kept in the loop, nothing was ever to much trouble. I feel completely happy to recommend Kim to anyone looking at selling a propety.
Ngaire Cooper, Ellerslie
Kim, it was a wonderful experience selling our house with you. You provide a wonderfully personal and professional service, we truly felt like the most important clients on your books. Your hands on approach to dealing with things such as staging, minor improvements in appearance certainly yielded dividends. In addition to this you had all the people at your finger tips to make all this happen. Just too easy!
We appreciated your tenacity in keeping in contact with potential purchasers. Your gentle and persistent encouragement ensured we had a good number of bidders in the room to run a true auction and get the best market price.
We would not hesitate to use your services again in the future. Thank you for all your efforts and the great result we got under the hammer.
Aaron Martin, Grey Lynn --- 2nd time customer
“Kim came recommended by old friends whose home she had sold. She did a fantastic job for me in selling my home of 36 years. The photos were amazing (although so was the house). Her sage advice meant I was well prepared in advance. Kim was accommodating of my very busy schedule, and once the open homes started it was relatively stress-free. The sale didn’t close at auction but Kim did not miss a beat; the next day we had a few offers to consider and within a week we had a deal that I felt good about. We had celebratory dinner with Kim and my old friends as well and my new ‘life after 60’ is about to begin.”
Prof. Jane Kelsey, Mt Wellington
“We first met Kim while looking at homes to buy. We liked her quiet confidence and decided to engage her to manage the sale of our own home. We experienced Kim as warm and professional throughout the process of appraisal, marketing and auction. She was knowledgeable and provided clear explanations to our questions. We were impressed by the amount of effort and attention to detail that Kim put into researching the recent sales in our area in order to guide the marketing of our home. She instilled confidence by relaying information within the time frames she set and remained positive and steadfast. Kim took the initiative to personally research potential concerns raised by a prospective buyer. We believe that had a real positive impact on the final price we were able to attain for our home. We felt that our ideas and opinions were always listened to respectfully and we felt in control of the process. We were ultimately pleased with the result and would recommend Kim to others.”
Geraldine Hughes & Andrew Reynolds, Ellerslie
“We have had a working relationship with Kim for about 12 months, since she was the agent for the house we bought in 2014. As part of that purchase process we put our current home on the market thinking it would be an easy sale. We tried using a General Agency with a couple of agents and discovered that it had a few challenges. We didn’t think an auction would work for the property based on the feedback we had received. We resigned ourselves to a long waiting period, and it sat quietly on the books. Kim then brought us a marketing strategy proposal and we worked collaboratively throughout the campaign, understanding the complications and the advantages of the site. We are so grateful that Kim approached us with her plan. Her confidence and skill secured a price well above our expectations. Kim worked really hard to make it seem easy. She is a pleasure to deal with and we highly recommend her professional and ethical services.”
Ali & Nick Barnfield, Mt Wellington --- 2nd time customer
“ I had never sold by auction before, and being out of the country, I was understandably quite anxious. However, after meeting Kim, I knew I could relax and leave everything in her capable hands. Her expertise, attention to detail, communication skills, and personal touch, made the entire process effortless for me and my family, all without the young children in the house even knowing it was for sale. She absolutely put her all into it from day one…it was as if she was selling her own home. Suffice to say, her hard work and commitment paid off handsomely for me, and I’m so happy with the whole outcome …thanks a million Kim”
Maakere Marr, Onehunga
“Thank You Kim! We are very happy and we could not have asked for more”
Wayne McCullough, New Lynn
"Kim stood out from the crowd of agents that I met with. Her advice was realistic, thorough and clearly delivered. It was an easy choice to make. I left the management of the sale entirely to her. She stayed in regular contact with a call every couple of days and I was in no doubt that the sale of my property received her full focus. She clearly also stayed in regular contact with the buyers and gave written reports of her negotiations with them. The end result was well over my expectation and the simplicity of the process was much appreciated. I highly recommend Kim and her professional expertise."
Virginia Peebles, Papatoetoe
"It was very important for me that I got a premium price for my property. Kim understood that and she respected my decision to pass in at Auction. She continued to work hard and with a positive attitude in the weeks following the auction. She was very supportive and made herself available to talk through the process as I needed to. I was satisfied that I got the most the market was prepared to pay for my home and that Kim had done everything possible to achieve that."
Helen Slater, Mt Eden
“As out of town owners Kim was so helpful with preparing and looking after the sale of our property. She has proven that she will put herself out for people. She drove across town in peak Friday afternoon traffic to show a keen buyer through before the first weekend of Open Homes. The result was an acceptable offer after the first open home. Kim did not stop there, she clearly worked hard to get others along to the Auction that was brought forward. We had a competitive auction within 3 days of the first open home and got a really great price. She more than earned her fees.”
Triana and Lance Vernell, Somerville
“Kim was recommended to us by a good friend. We were really happy with the management of the sale and especially happy with the sale price. Kim showed her skill at auction of actively working the bidders encouraging and supporting them to bid; helping it go well over reserve. She also assisted where needed with securing our next purchase. We highly recommend her experience and attentive services for a stress-free sale.”
Lindell & Wayne McCarthy, Mangere East
“We are delighted to recommend Kim Hampson. Kim worked extremely diligently on our behalf over a considerable length of time to sell our steep and challenging section. Kim reported to us regularly and was always supportive of us as vendors. We have no hesitation in recommending her to others who want a hard working agent.”
Margaret & Nigel Harrison, Remuera
“I bought and sold my house with Kim Hampson. As a buyer I found her helpful and easy to contact. A few months before I wanted to sell she gave me, what turned out to be, very good advice about preparing the property - what to fix and what to leave. During the sale of my property Kim was efficient and well organised, her marketing was creative, presenting the home at its best. I was very busy with other things at the time and Kim made the process simple and easy; she certainly delivered on her promises. The result was a competitive auction and an outstanding price. I highly recommend Kim as a skilful and competent agent to anyone selling their property.”
Mark Cannata, Remuera -----2nd time customer
“We had our family home on the market for 8mths with another company. Kim and Yuling, were very positive about what we needed to do and how to get sold. They gave us good practical advice and hands on help to improve the presentation of the property. They were very honest and realistic with their price guide and recognising the condition of the building. I helped my mother with the sale because she only speaks Mandarin. Kim kept me and other family members well informed with regular contact throughout the auction campaign. And everything they said they would do, they did. We sold after a 3 week auction campaign. Amazing!"
Andy Huang, Half Moon Bay
“We had only recently returned from living overseas and did not live in Auckland. Kim’s advice on what work to do and not to do - preparing the house was, in hindsight, right on the money. She organised and facilitated preparing the property, providing competitive quotes for tradesman. Making that really simple and easy for us. Kim kept us well informed throughout the process and was always easily contactable. She delivered a competitive auction as promised and exceeded our expectations. We have no hesitation in recommending her professional and reliable service."
Trudy & Trevor Clarke, Tauranga
“I never would have imagined selling my property from overseas would be so easy. I knew Kim would do a good job, having just purchased a house from them. Kim worked well with my property manager from another company and got the property prepared and staged. She went the extra mile that I did not expect and treated the sale as though it was her own property. Kim communicated often with regular updates on viewings and the interest level, we were kept well informed. Looking back now she gave me good advice, they did not pressure me to drop my price. They both worked very hard to get the price I wanted and I was very happy with the result."
Stephen Eng, Singapore ----2nd time customer
“We selected Kim as our agent for a second time; this time to sell our family home. She did not assume that because we were thrilled with the result she got for our investment property that she would automatically get our business. She satisfied us with her proposal and strategy and proved that her high level of service was dependable, we felt she gave the process constant care. Kim had never sold in this area before but the crowd that arrived for the auction was the largest we had ever had in the street in the 18 years we lived there. The result of the sale was very important for our future and we are happy and relieved to have done so well."
Kheong Cheah, Dannemora ----2nd time customer
"I would like to acknowledge our sincere appreciation and commendation of Kim Hampson. Kim showed superb performance in every area and especially demonstrated delicacy around Mum to which the whole event was a big step. At every stage Kim impressed me with her thought and positive, practical actions, she was so very easy to deal with. Despite knowing friends in the industry we chose Kim due to her responsiveness and are now very pleased that we did. Thank you for a great result."
Rob Craigie, Remuera
"We cannot speak highly enough, for the help and guidance given by Kim Hampson when marketing and selling our family home of 33 years. Her professional attitude and marketing skills in presenting our property were outstanding, at all times. Without question we strongly recommend Kim for the marketing and sale of your property."
Ann & Adrian Robinson, Remuera
"I was very happy with the outcome of the sale of my investment in Pakuranga. Kim Hampson worked hard and persisted after it passed in at Auction to get my desired price. It was not an easy transaction to pull together but her patience and tenacity and her cooperative attitude with other agents resulted in her meeting my target."
Yu Zhang, Pakuranga
“Before Kim was our agent I found her to be helpful and knowledgeable about the property market in Auckland. She ran a “full on” auction campaign and with us being out of town sellers Kim was willing to help where required and went the extra mile. As the marketing and open home process unfolded, Kim identified our target buyer and “tweaked” the advertising to suit. Her hard work on our behalf resulted in an excellent sale at auction. What impressed me most was Kim encouraging us to NOT accept an offer we were not happy with, showing her to have our best interests at heart.”
Nick Craven, Christchurch
“The whole process went smoothly to produce the outcome we had wanted, thanks to Kim’s many attributes. We found Kim to be consistent and professional. Her approach was both business-like and personal. She was calm, organised and knowledgeable. We always felt that we were in control of the situation with her perceptivity, regular communication and her being proactive on issues that arose. We would thoroughly recommend her services to anyone who wishes to sell their property.”
Kathy Howie & Maxine Walker, One Tree Hill
“It was such a great pleasure working with Kim Hampson. She is professional, proactive, intelligent and hardworking. Her advice, support and communication keeping us up-to-date with the marketing progress resulted in us having a stress free sale of the property. Her marketing strategy & approach was so good, it attracted over a 150 groups going through the open homes and over a 100+ people attending the auction. What more can you ask for. The result of all her hard work - an auction sale price of 66% over CV. I highly recommend Kim Hampson to you if you are planning to sell your property.”
Kheong Cheah, Mangere Bridge ----2nd time customer
“I have been most impressed by Kim Hampson’s comprehensive professional expertise. She has been meticulously attentive to detail in all aspects. Kim has remained available, reliable and punctual at all times. She has gone the extra mile searching on-line options for my future and presenting me with appropriate contacts to explore as a retiree. Kim has given me constant support and feedback throughout the whole experience, displaying competent ability to assess potential interest. The end result was outstanding.”
Meg Montague, Mt Eden
"Kim Hampson supported me through each stage of the marketing campaign and auction process. Her practical help went above and beyond the call of duty. Selling my home was such a daunting prospect, that without her help I don't think I would have been brave enough to go through with it. At no stage was she pushy or overbearing, rather she let me set the pace and 'walk up to the line' a number of times before I finally made the decision to sell. I was very pleased with the effectiveness of the marketing campaign, and the end result of the auction. I would recommend Kim to anyone considering selling a home."
Jenny Thompson, Remuera
"We were impressed throughout by both by her professionalism and efficiency, and by her empathy and understanding in accommodating constraints placed upon both her and the sale process by the limitations of my medical condition. Her advice was always considered and balanced and she showed a genuine desire to achieve a great result, without compromising her integrity and professionalism. We felt well informed at all times during the process. We would recommend Kim wholeheartedly to anyone considering the sale of their property, we were very happy with the results.”
Jean Thomson and family, Remuera
"Once again thank you so much Kim for your hard work and excellent advice which lead to the fantastic outcome in selling our deceased estate - I am amazed that it was so easy."
Joanne Smyth, Panmure
“I count myself fortunate that Kim Hampson rang me back in mid-January 2012 as promised. I had first talked to her in October or November 2011. I had intended to sell my house for ages, but had convinced myself it was not ready. Kim’s straight talking and common sense and her enthusiasm for my house despite its many flaws gave me confidence that it could be sold in its current state. For which I am truly grateful. The house was sold under the hammer at auction at a good price. I think this speaks volumes for Kim’s hard work.”
Michael Young, Remuera
“Without reservation we can highly recommend Kim Hampson as a real estate agent. We were impressed with the time and effort she put into selling our house. By keeping
us informed and with regular contact, she helped us through a difficult letting-go of our home of 41 years. By talking through the process with us we were kept reassured at all times.
Her involvement in preparing our house and presenting it at its best made us feel we were in excellent hands. We felt we were well prepared for the auction with weekly meetings and by attending other auctions with Kim. We were very happy with the outcome.”
Leo & Barbara Shaw, St Johns
"Kim Hampson did a great job selling my elderly mothers house. Providing a warm, friendly and caring presence and achieving a great price."
Gabrielle Panckhurst, Mt Eden
"A big thank you to Kim Hampson for a successful result in selling our house. Faced with substantial issues regarding moisture reports, she was very honest in the marketing & selling of our home. Her professional conduct of the auction & all the work beforehand resulted in a satisfactory conclusion for us & we have no hesitation in recommending Kim to new clients."
Rick & Annie Walsh, Remuera
