Michael is passionate about people and property.
Throughout Michael’s life he has always built relationships with people of all ages, cultures, religions, and backgrounds and this has given him the understanding and experience to work with the rich range of people, and backgrounds that real estate presents.
Whether you are buying or selling a property you are making a lot of very important decisions that need to be taken into consideration. Michael and his wife Diane made the decision to leave Auckland in 1997 to move to Northland, and have never looked back. So Michael understands the importance of all the reasons for making a decision, it is not just about the ‘House’.
Michael loves working on their lifestyle property, and has a particular passion for the simple meditation of splitting and stacking wood, to keep the home fires burning.
What Allan has to say
"Now that my house sale has gone through I just wanted to thank you, and particularly Michael, for all the hard work you've put in on my behalf in recent years.
If any of your clients - or potential clients - are looking for a recommendation of who to use to look after a house purchase, sale or indeed rental, then tell them that I would unreservedly recommend Michael and your good selves.
Over a seven year period, Michael helped me buy, rent and subsequently sell my house in NZ. I came to trust him completely, I'm UK based and rarely in NZ - and that factor was critical to me. He has integrity, is always very helpful, responsive and professional and he certainly knows the property market in northern NZ extremely well.
What Charlie Wrigglesworth & Heather King have to say
"We really enjoyed the sales process with Michael and with the office support. We saw the listing while looking on the internet – we were coming up to Coopers to look at the apartments for sale in Cables Bay which we had seen in the real-estate pull out from the Herald on Friday and were looking to see if we could see anything else while we were up there.
Really appreciated the communication – everyone let everyone know what was going on in a timely manner – I think communication is so key in any transaction Michael and his team always let us know what was going on which was great. The office support also made us feel part of the ‘triangle’ of buyer agent and seller which was great – we have only bought three properties in our life so did not know what we were doing but you certainly helped us through the process in a professional and friendly way. Michael was also very honest and open about the property and helpful in putting us on to a local engineer, and providing contact details for the ‘neighbours’ and the holiday let managers."
What Peter Rankin and Theresa Reid have to say
"We thought the assessment we got and the advice about extra work on the place was sensible and well-founded. The photos and advertising were very good - and were refreshed after a while. Michael Healy worked hard for a sale, brought a lot of people through in a pretty slow market, and kept us well informed. We would have been pleased with the amount of effort that went in even if it had not sold - but he did get a sale that we are very pleased with.
The back-up from the office was smooth and efficient. All round, the service was fully Professional throughout and we enjoyed working with you. We have already recommended you to someone wanting to sell a rural property up there and we hope they get in touch with you.
What Shane Gibbs has to say
We are very happy with the purchase and very impressed with the service we received from the Far North Coastal team. We had some unique circumstances that would have made it challenging for most agents but all proceeded with great communication and without issue . I have bought several properties over the years and always had some pre and post purchase reservations but this has been a great experience and we will certainly be talking with Michael in the future... be it for buying or selling.
