Yesterday’s auction result was beyond our most hopeful expectations. I am pleased that it occurred in your offices, witnessed by your peers, for you deserve recognition and congratulations on a job well done. 
Throughout the short 4 weeks of the sales campaign, you have both done everything you could to ensure a stellar result.
From politely understanding our unreasonable aversion to sections of the press, to putting up with my insistence on editing perfectly good marketing copy. 
From organising window cleaners, to navigating steep, slippery driveways to collect curtains … then hanging, and re-hanging them.
From escorting tradespeople, to calmly reasoning with amateur building inspectors and their nervous clients.
All the while maintaining a courteous smile and radiating contagious optimism.
You are thoughtful, thorough, always personable and admirably professional.
Mr and Mrs Kellock
David is a pedigree....it shows throw in the seamless and enjoyable process that we entered into. 

We couldn't be happier, we just adore this home.

David Rainbow was completely professional and paid attention to every detail and how things were going throughout the process - even after we had been living in the property for a few weeks.

Heather and I would like to express our sincere thanks for the professional way you went about selling our home. You listened to us, were open and transparent in your opinions and brought buyer and seller together. You gave us sound advice and minimised the stress in selling a home. We would without hesitation deal with you again in the future and confidently recommend you to both family and friends.
James Whineray
I found David very easy to work with, sensitive to the particular situation and to my wishes around it. He gave me the support and guidance needed to keep the process on track and I thank him for his tolerance and help. I also thank Joneen for her input and support.

Elaine and I interviewed four real estate firms when we decided to sell our Parnell house. We subsequently signed with David Rainbow and his team of partner Joneen Smith and PA Jules Dowden. Apart from their industriousness and daily reports, we were most impressed with their professional attitude which was typified by the respect whey showed by representing the vendor – not doing side deals with the buyers. Our house was sold by them and we were pleased with the result. In conclusion we would be happy to recommend David and his quality team to anyone wishing to sell their house.
Bill & Elaine Mackey
Thank you so much for the prompt and ‘stress-free’ sale of our house. We have really appreciated your professionalism. It is so nice to work with a team who never fail to follow up on actions in an efficient and effective manner. David and I would not hesitate in recommending you to other people looking for an agent.
Adele & David Carran

Just to say thanks. Sarah and I were just reflecting how professional you all were in engaging with the Tuhaere Street process – as a team. We really felt you all worked together so well, and your success is clearly no coincidence. You communication and integrity really stood out.
Michael Bell

 It was a pleasure to work with such a professional team of people and thank you so much for helping with the fund raising event. I was very impressed to see how much work was involved behind the scenes on the auction day itself in getting the best price. Thanks again and best wishes.
Sarah Hillary

We couldn't help but note the high level of professional integrity you displayed during the sale process of Sir Edmund Hillary's family home. My dealings with yourself and other associated parties were memorable for your diligent yet sensitive and private approach to this very public transaction.

Our sincere thanks again for your invaluable assistance in concluding the successful sale of another property for us. As always, we appreciated your advice and professionalism and also the efficient and enthusiastic manner with which you conducted the campaign.  Always a pleasure working with you. Geoff & Fran Ricketts

We found David Rainbow and his team at Bayleys to be extremely professional and easy to work with.  The single most outstanding difference between David's team and others was their consistent phone feedback as to the level of interest from each potential purchaser.  To top off the short marketing campaign with a sale made for an altogether stress free experience. Cam & Yvonne Hadlow

With reference to the selling of our property, we would like to register our thanks in the professional manner your team handled the sale of our property.  The four weekends of open homes generated over 50 enquiries, which were all efficiently documented and timely followed up with a report.  This process culminated in the sale of our property at auction in your rooms.  We are very appreciative of the effort and the enthusiasm shown by Joneen Smith and David Rainbow and would have no hesitation in recommending them to any prospective Vendors in the future. Martyn & Cheryl Dawson

We can now be added to your “fan club’ – we experienced ourselves your wonderful calming professional manner!  You made it seem so easy – nothing was too much hassle for you. John Bates & Jan Bradley

Grant and I wanted to take the opportunity to personally thank you and Joneen for the way you both handled the process of the sale of our property.  It made what can be an emotional and stressful experience – easy.  We appreciated very much the open lines of communication throughout the process.  We felt your professionalism, warmth and honesty put you both in a league of your own!  Grant & Nicki Dalton

I would like to express our sincere appreciation to you and your colleagues for the proficient manner in which the sale of our property in Arney Road, Remuera was conducted by you and your firm.  The efficiency with which you conducted the public campaign for the sale, and constant contact with yourselves so that we would be advised of each step taken to market the property through to auction stage,  provided us with much assurance, especially as we were not able to interact directly with you at all times.  Thank you once again for your support.  Financial Secretary, Government of Samoa

Just a note to compliment you and Joneen on the way you handled the sale of our property.  As you know I was initially a little wary of the auction process, but now agree that it is a very clean way of selling a property.  I felt that the exposure our house received gave us every opportunity to attract the competing bidders that would lead to a premium price being achieved.  When the marketplace did not meet our expected premium, your skill in achieving the best price from the eventual purchaser was impressive.  ………. I would be totally confident that you would also achieve a fair price for the seller, with the opportunity for an “exuberant” price in the situation where there are several keen buyers.  Richard Ebbett

I am writing to thank you and congratulate you on your company’s sale of our property … the work of the Rainbow Team ensured that we received a price that was well above what we had estimated.  I know that we made a significant investment in listing and selling our property with Joneen and Bayleys.  However I truly believe that we have achieved a far greater result than we could have anticipated because of the professional approach, marketing nous and hard work shown by Joneen backed by David and your team.  Stephen Powell
