Described by her friends as happy, determined, caring and tenacious. Linda is someone you can rely on.


"I do not have enough positive words to say about Linda - a truly respectful, professional, genuine and warm real estate agent who is responsive to the needs of her vendors. Linda is extremely knowledgeable and quietly unassuming. Beneath this calm exterior, she is driven and diligent and all her advise to us about how to sell and how to market our home was spot on. If you live in Wai O Taiki Bay or Point England area, Linda who is a local resident should be your go to agent. She achieved a result for us beyond what we could have ever hoped. We cannot recommend her enough".

"Earlier this year, my wife and I were contemplating purchasing a new property in Wai O Taiki Bay in Auckland. We attended an open home in the area which Linda Reid was supervising. We were immediately impressed with Linda's friendly approach. She very quickly ascertained that the type of home we were looking for was different to that represented at the home, and went out of her way to show us a range of properties - including some that were approaching completion and about to come onto the market.

Subsequently we purchased a new property in the area through Linda.

The entire process of purchasing our new home has been very pleasant; much of that as a direct result of Linda's hard work, excellent customer service and attention to details. Nothing has been too much trouble for her in relation to this project.

We have found Linda to be a consummate professional and highly customer focused in the way she is setting about her business activity. It has been a pleasure dealing with her.

I would recommend Linda to you and would be happy to speak further to this reference if required. My contact details are noted below.

Yours sincerely

Linda Reid is a tenacious agent that isn’t afraid to get on the phone. Linda won the listing over another agent due to her persistence and tenacity – character traits we are think are important in property sales. Those traits were again demonstrated during negotiations with the eventual buyer. I can highly recommend Linda as someone that isn’t afraid to get stuck in and get the job done.

We purchased a house through Linda in April 2018.

My partner and I are currently in the midst of an OE in London but we were back in New Zealand over the summer to catch up with our families. While we weren’t yet actively looking for a home, we thought we would just have a look to see what was in the market.

We determined an area of Auckland that we liked and then got in touch with a number of real estate agents. After speaking and meeting with several real estate agents, we were feeling slightly disheartened until we encountered Linda who was truly a class above.

Linda brought our attention to a whole new area that we weren’t even aware of with a home that wasn’t yet on the market – we instantly fell in love with the property.

Then, with no pressuring or pushing like you would get from other agents, Linda allowed us to take some time to think about our decision but still answered any questions we had regarding the home in a prompt fashion.

What was extraordinary was when we decided to make an offer on the home (which we only knew about because of Linda's inside knowldege) we had actually returned to London. This wasn’t a problem as Linda facilitated the whole purchasing process like we were still in the country.

Finally, Linda then managed to settle an agreement whereby the former owners would rent the home off us, a perfect arrangement given we were not in the country as it saved us the hassle of having to find trustworthy tenants.

Thank you for your service Linda, 10/10 and would not hesitate to recommend to others.
