The Armons – above and beyond your expectations

17C Dodd Road, Awhitu Peninsula

Thank you both for all the hard work you put into marketing our property earlier this year, culminating in a successful sale during what has been a very challenging time for real estate. You certainly went the extra mile for us (even delivering water and a power bank for us during Cyclone Gabrielle!), and you were consistently positive and energetic, which we greatly appreciated during a stressful time. Your many years of experience were always evident, and you were always on hand to offer advice. We felt that your marketing campaign for our much-loved home was outstanding, and you were always very generous and patient with your time during many meetings and open homes. We wish you both every success in the future, as your energy and commitment deserve.

252D Big Bay Road

The success of any project is determined by choosing the right people. When we decided to sell 252D Big Bay Road on the Awhitu Peninsula the choice of Barbara and Stanley Armon as the agents was a brilliant decision. The Armons at the very first meeting said they would create energy in the sale and by doing so would achieve a great result. Real Estate agents are notorious for over-selling themselves and the predicted outcome when vying for a listing. Over the subsequent marketing phase what became apparent was Stanley and Barbara kept to what they had promised at the start, creating enthusiasm and energy in the process. Their predicted price was found to be incorrect, not on the high side but rather significantly on the low side.

To achieve a great result in Real Estate every part of the sale needs to be done well. From taking the
photos, producing great marketing material, ensuring the marketing is seen widely in this digital age, to gaining knowledge of the property, to the small tasks which make all the difference in the sales process. Barbara and Stanley ensured all this was done professionally and effectively.

On a personal note, the sale process was fun. The enthusiasm of the Armons is infectious. Stanley’s stories made us laugh and the combination of Stanley creating energy in the sale process and Barbara’s communication to us the vendors made a stressful process a great experience. If you are considering selling your home the Armons are a wonderful choice for the listing agents, but especially on the Awhitu Peninsula where they are building their own home and a place they love.

An awesome result

My sister and I were recommended Stanley & Barbara Armon from Barfoot & Thompson, and could not have been happier to have them on board with us. We faced a few challenges due to both of us living in Australia and COV-19 making it difficult to travel to NZ.

We were truly thankful for their professionalism and communication throughout the whole process. Having all the years of experience between them really showed, along with their passion and love for what they do.

They recommended we take our property to Auction; they had a fantastic marketing plan and were very truthful with their feedback and advice along the way. Even from across the ditch we felt always informed, understood and nothing was too much trouble – even my silly questions.

Their dedication and enthusiasm to sell our property were above and beyond, bringing us a result on Auction day that we never thought possible.

So, we can highly recommend them to any potential seller. You truly will have two fantastic agents in your corner who will support you every step of the way. We thank them so very much and appreciate everything they did to get us such an awesome result.

Enthusiasm of a young couple!

Stanley and Barbara recently sold our house for us. We could not have wished for better agents. Stanley and Barbara are a polished and professional team with the enthusiasm of a young couple. It was a pleasure working with them as they showed genuine care for us and our home. But they are not only fabulous at their job, they go about it with a lovely warm, friendly and relaxed manner that makes a potentially stressful process very easy. They achieved an outstanding result for us and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to anyone else looking to sell.

Passion and commitment

We felt extremely fortunate to have secured our next home. Now we needed action to sell our current home. Their own marketing material said they exceeded client’s expectations, so we met with Barbara and Stanley Armon. Their real estate experience, passion and commitment was very evident. We shared our timeline and brief. They kept us updated at every step, right through to the sale. If you seek action, seek the Armons.

Helpful, competent and trustworthy

Stanley and Barbara have sold our two properties, and we can honestly say that they worked hard for us and went more than the extra mile. They are helpful, competent and trustworthy and they have their clients at heart, keeping in frequent communication and advising as needed.

Marie & Mal White

Very satisfied customer/client

Thank you for your professional real estate assistance, with the sale of our Orua Bay beach house. Nothing was too much trouble for you, your cheerful disposition was an absolute pleasure. You kept us very well informed during the advertising campaign and the progress with potential buyers. You promoted our property to achieve the best possible result, with honesty and local knowledge.

As very satisfied customers/clients we would have no hesitation in recommending Stanley and Barbara Armon to any prospective vendor or purchaser; to act on their behalf.

We would not hesitate to engage your services again.

Big-city expertise with local knowledge

Helen and I want to thank you both for the outstanding service you provided resulting in a sale, at a very good price, in a very short timeframe.

We chose you two because we had seen properties you were marketing in Remuera and importantly on the Awhitu Peninsula. We were hoping for big-city expertise with local knowledge. That is exactly what we got! photography, marketing material and website were outstanding!

You managed to get about 15 groups through over the first weekend which was quite something given the isolated nature of Wattle Bay.

The result was a solid agreement and a backup offer in less than a fortnight from the property going on the market. This was remarkable as we understood properties on the Peninsula usually take months to sell.

The sale process was trouble-free, and you both were a pleasure to deal with being helpful and eminently reliable.

Modern marketing strategies work

We have worked with Stanley and Barbara Armon on a couple of occasions and we were thrilled with the communication, professionalism and drive that they both have, to really get the job done. I have never met 2 people that work so hard for their clients and really want to excel in all that they do, when it comes to the selling of your property.

Their modern marketing strategies work! And they work with you to come up with the best possible solution to market and sell you property. Their communication and feedback was always truthful and we felt we were always kept up to date with market trends and prospective purchaser’s feedback.

Their dedication to selling the Awhitu Peninsula and surrounding areas really speaks for itself. They sell, and they sell all of them! They are both passionate about this unique and special place in NZ. They know the area very well and its history (as they also have a residence here) and we believe do the best job out of any other agents we have ever used.

If you are considering marketing your property, whether it be on the Awhitu Peninsula or anywhere else, we would thoroughly recommend Stanley and Barbara. You won’t regret it, and they will get you the results you want.

Feel the enthusiasm

We always have a dream to own a heaven of peace and happiness to escape the city life. Stanley and Barbara helped make that dream a reality. First time I met Stanley, listen to the introduction of the property and the land, see and read the photos and footage he took in Awhitu in the past years; you can deeply feel the enthusiasm, passionate and ownership from this man’s heart. Nobody knows Awhitu Peninsula better than Stanley. We are lucky to know him, a true ambassador of the land. On the other hand, I have to say Stanley is by far the best real estate agent we’ve ever met, his professionalism, personality, attention to detail, responsiveness and his ability to close the deal was outstanding! If you are buying or selling a home in Awhitu, do yourselves a favour and know Stanley first.

A wealth of experience of the area

As a result of their extensive experience of the area we had faith that our property would sell in a good time frame, which it did. Their wealth of experience of the area and calm demeanour throughout the process gave us the peace of mind we needed, knowing that our property was in good hands. We would happily recommend Stanley & Barbara to anyone wanting to sell their property in the Awhitu Peninsula area.

We could not fault the very good service and help we received from both Stanley & Barbara. They were always considerate of us and gave outstanding thoughtfulness at all times.

We would be happy to recommend Stanley & Barbara to market a property. They gave their best attention to us and were always considerate of our circumstances, timing visits and viewings convenient to our situation. We were never rushed, treated kindly and with a delightful sense of humour. We always felt marketing was done with excellence.
