"We would highly recommend Jo Glancy to any vendor looking for an effective agent. We had met her at open homes over the years and found her to be friendly and professional. She is an excellent communicator and worked closely with our family through the auction process. Jo’s advice relating to marketing and staging the property was critical in a difficult market and we were happy with the result she delivered us. Thank you"

"Jo recently sold our property and we would highly recommend her services. From the very beginning Jo was patient and never pushy. She worked within our timeframes, was extremely well organised and professional at all times. Above all, Jo was considerate of our needs and included the whole family in the process. Thank you Jo!"

"We met Jo as the selling agent. What we appreciated most was the space she gave us whilst viewing (we never like it when agents follow you round) and yet was always available when we had questions, even if she didn't know the answer she was quick to respond. She always followed up on viewings but never came across as pushy. Jo also kept us informed right up to auction date and generally made our purchase easier. On the basis of my experience I would be confident recommending Jo to sell your home too!"

"I met Jo Glancy on the recommendation of my neighbours who had previously bought and sold property with her and spoke very highly of her as an agent and a person.
At the time I was selling the family home of 48 years and was daunted at the prospect of having to find an agent that would help me through a process that I knew nothing about.
From Jo I received kindness, understanding and a firm hand all of which I needed at different times.
I trusted in her to do her job and she didnt let me down, there were no false promises made and no unrealistic expectations allowed just a determination that I would understand everything and make my decisions fully informed.
I have now also bought and sold with Jo who I dont think of as an agent but as a friend with a great understanding of real estate.
She will always have my grateful thanks."

"Jo Glancy was given the task of selling my property after my listing agent decided to leave for another career.
I had not met Jo until she inherited my listing to sell. From the very start Jo handled the situation I was left in with grace and dedication.
She is always available to talk to.
My property was very unique and not the easiest to market given that it had some issues.
During the campaign she also managed to get the property a feature in the Herald which yielded a large amount of buyers.
Jo has the ability to calmly negotiate with all parties and has the tenacity to keep going until a result is obtained.
I would highly recommend her to sell any property even in a challenging market.
Thank you so much."

"House sales made easy! We live in a different city to where our house was sold, so Jo Glancy arranged everything for us from dealing with our tenants, arranging staging and photography, managing an amazing marketing campaign with over 50 different open home viewings right through to the auction process and settlement. This was the first house we have sold, so everything was new us, but Jo ensured everything went smoothly."

"Jo recently sold our house in Northcote Point and I would recommend her services to anyone. Jo’s suggestions to us, her great network of contacts and her excellent style with buyers meant we had four bidders in the room on auction day when many other properties were either not selling or having 1-2 bidders. Jo’s communication was professional and clear with updates after all open homes and prior to the house being on the market so we always knew what she was doing and where we were at. Most importantly, her positivity helped us to stay positive through the auction process which while very effective can be a very intense time for vendors. We are very happy with our outcome on the day and think Jo should be your go to estate agent for Northcote Point and beyond."

"We only have positive things to say about Jo and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. We have dealt with many real estate agents over the years and it is hard to find someone like Jo who has a genuine warm personality combined with the skills of an experienced salesperson and the motivation to work very hard to achieve fantastic results. When we were considering selling, we were looking for an agent who not only we liked and could work with, but who would be an excellent person for buyers to work with as well, and Jo exceeded our expectations. Jo is the consummate professional and a pleasure to deal with during what can be a rather stressful time. She is open, warm, communicative and upfront. Through the sales process Jo was always positive, kept us regularly informed, was flexible never pushy and we always felt like she was available. And even though there were times we must have driven her crazy, she was always calm. We never once felt like selling our house wasn’t a top priority for her (even though we knew she has other listings), and we are certain that the result we got on auction day was because of her professionalism and commitment. Jo was our sole point of contact throughout the sales process which reduced the stress considerably (rather than dealing with multiple agents). She always contacted us to arrange viewing times for buyers as opposed to other agents we have dealt with in the past who turn up on our doorstep with no warning or enter our house without letting us know. Jo made selling our property as easy and straightforward as it could have been. It has been an absolute pleasure to have met and worked with Jo and we look forward to working with her in the future."

"As a Trustee of my deceased sister’s estate I was recently tasked with the sale of her property in Northcote; this task being expanded as there was also another party involved in the sale process due to the property being jointly owned. It was immediately apparent to me that she related to my position as a trustee and my role in the overall process of preparing the property for auction. In a short time Joanna had prepared a “time-line” for the sale process and worked with me to define all areas of concern leading up to the auction date and had prepared a detailed plan for the advertising of the property and the preparation of the house and grounds for the photography required for the advertising promotion. Joanna has a very pleasant personality that I related to from our first meeting and this is coupled to her very positive approach to the whole sale process. I have no hesitation in recommending her as a very professional agent who I would gladly use again should I ever require the services of an experienced agent in the future."

"Jo has been a tremendous help to us in selling our home and moving to one we love even more. Recently, a property in our neighbourhood came on the market. We loved it but thought it was out of reach, yet felt that if we didn’t at least try for it we would be missing out. We got in touch with Jo as she had handled the sale of it to us and, having dealt with her previously we were greatly impressed with her professionalism and ability to work the Roladex to string a deal together. We couldn’t think of anyone better qualified to get the job done.
Jo came over at very short notice and met with us to discuss our plan and talk through our options. Once we had made a decision, she acted very quickly and within a few days had hosted four viewings and managed to secure an offer of purchase at the price we had asked. Furthermore, Jo met us prior to the auction of the property we were going for, to discuss different scenarios and strategies. She sat with us at the auction and was on hand to offer thoughts and advice during the process. She also very kindly waited while we signed the paperwork as winning bidders. We are thrilled with the outcome and looking forward to moving home soon.
We were very impressed with Jo’s professionalism and efficiency throughout the process. We felt that Jo listened to us, understood our needs and worked diligently to achieve a great outcome. Jo’s market knowledge and ability to bring buyers and sellers are tremendous and she exceeded our expectations. We would not hesitate to recommend Jo to others. We are very pleased to pay Jo’s commission – it is thoroughly deserved.

"We brought our new home from Jo and we enjoyed dealing with her so much that it was then a very easy decision to ask her to sell our home. There were numerous late night negotiations and this was never a problem for her. Jo gave us great advice in preparing our home for sale. She provided us with a fantastic marketing package and gave us confidence that it would attract a wide range of potential buyers. We felt very well informed, with a detailed campaign timeline after each viewing and timeline. After each viewing and open home Jo called us straight away and gave us very detailed feedback. We were impressed at her thorough knowledge of the local market and how she kept up to date with the competing sales in our suburb. We both work full time and Jo made sure we always had plenty of notice before a viewing, ensured that they were well qualified, and made our lives as stress free as possible. All three open home weekends were absolutely packed and we had multiple private viewings. We accepted a pre-auction offer so the auction was brought forward, and with many bidders on auction day the final price well exceeded our expectations. This was by far the best experience we have ever had with an agent. Jo is warm, highly professional and experienced, and an absolute pleasure to deal with. We will be recommending her to anyone we know who is selling their home."

"I first came across Jo at an open home where I was comparing my property to the one she was selling. She came across as very personable and knowledgeable and even though I declared I was not interested in buying the house gave me insights into the current state of the market. When it came time to sell my house although I had been to numerous open homes and spoke to a host of agents Jo was the top of my list. Sure enough when she came around for my appraisal I knew she was the right person to market my home. Throughout the process she was a complete professional, kept me up to date every step of the way even helping at times with my presentation and giving me valuable contacts to help put the house into best presentable order. She also predicted very accurately the likely sale price. I think everyone should do their research before enlisting an agent as this is an important role – or you can save the time and take the advice of someone who has done the research and get Jo."

"We would like to highly recommend Jo to anyone who is looking for a Real Estate agent to sell their home. Her innovative marketing and boundless energy ensured that we had full exposure to potential buyers and the lead up to auction day saw her consolidate a worthwhile group of potential buyers making the auction day a success. Throughout the process we were kept fully informed of progress and feedback, almost on a daily basis. Jo capitalised on her extensive knowledge and understanding of the current market trends and although buying and selling property can be distressing, I am pleased to say that such was not the case for us. Thank you, Jo, for all your hard work on our behalf."

We found Jo to be a highly engaging personality who consistently demonstrated to us a strong focus on regular, open communication – always responding promptly to our questions during the marketing and auction process. We felt that Jo worked hard for us, gaining great coverage of our property in the press and a good attendance at our open homes. Jo got us a buyer at the auction, which now means we can move on. For that, and for making what could have been a very stressful experience for us into a very positive one, we would be very happy to recommend Jo to other potential customers."

"We would like to thank you for restoring our faith in the integrity of the real estate profession from a buyer’s point of view! That statement sounds quite melodramatic, but your approach throughout the buying process was in complete contrast to the negative experiences we recently had with other estate agents. As a young couple on the hunt for our next home, we were quite shocked at how dismissive other real estate agents had been of us when attending open homes auctions. Despite being cash buyers who have bought and sold property previously, we often felt we were not taken seriously or that we could be easily persuaded to make uneducated decisions. As a result, these agents actually did their vendors a disservice because they discouraged us from presenting our best offer on more than one occasion. I would like to describe our experience with you for future vendors and buyers to know they’re in such capable hands. Please forgive the length, but it really is necessary to communicate just how fantastic you were to deal with in comparison to others!! My wife and I initially viewed a property listed with Jo, but already had our heart set on another home that was going to auction first. When Jo followed up with a phone call to ask our impressions of the property I explained that we were focussed on securing another property, so she offered to follow up again with us later to see if we had been successful. Instantly I was stunned – an agent who was attentive but who also actually listened!"

"I'm seventy, I have very high expectations and have been known to be a little argumentative and not to suffer fools too gladly. I interviewed several real estate agents when I was looking to sell my property, I didn't want any hassles at all, I didn't want any involvement and I wanted my home sold quickly. I gave the job to Jo because she impressed me with her quick mind, she had the answer to every question I asked, at her fingertips, she appeared to be decisive and she impressed me as having a very good work ethic. She was also good with me so I knew she could handle people who were maybe no so easy to deal with. Jo did everything I asked; I had no hassles and no involvement apart from signing the papers when my property was sold for a good price at auction. I suppose I could say she did everything I asked her for. I wasn't surprised. The best that I can say for Jo is that I hope I didn't cause her too much angst and thank her for holding my hand when I needed my hand held."

I spoke with several real estate agents but was most impressed with Jo’s professionalism, knowledge and prompt response. She also gave me excellent advice on preparing and presenting my property for sale. Throughout the weeks of marketing leading up to auction day Jo kept me fully informed and went the extra mile to ensure my property received maximum exposure to the maximum number of potential buyers. As a consequence, my property sold on auction day and I was extremely happy. I now had to find another property to suit my needs. Once again Jo went the extra mile recommending various properties. She listened and understood my requirements and was instrumental in locating for me and negotiating the purchase of my current property. I hope to spend many happy hears in this property but will certainly look to Jo for her expertise in the future should I wish to sell.

"Jo Glancy has been extremely pro-active, pleasant and professional to deal with. With a young family on a work relocation into Auckland we were keen to find a house to buy fairly quickly. Living in a small apartment with a couple of pre-schoolers isn’t too much fun!! Out of 20+ agents we met during the course of the search Jo was the only one to go beyond showing us what was already obvious. She searched out a property that met our needs, and facilitated a sale that worked for both buyer and vendor. She went beyond the call of duty to deal with 3rd parties to ensure the contract went unconditional as soon as possible, allowing both parties to move forward with their planning. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jo to anyone looking to buy or sell a property."

We had not hesitation in signing up with Jo when it came to listing our late mothers home of 40 years. Jo explained the procedure in our terms so my sisters and I understood every step regards advertising, house inspections, the auction and kept us in touch personally with a meeting once a week to inform us how many prospective buyers had viewed it during the week and inspections on the weekend, and generally keeping us in the loop with comments made, questions asked and regular updates including phone calls after every ‘open house’ on Saturday, Sunday to inform us how many groups had viewed it that day.

During the process of selling our home, Jo made it so easy for us (in what can often be a very stressful time) Her communication is fantastic. We were kept well informed throughout the process and any small problems that arose regarding our home were sorted with ease by Jo helping arrange meetings with tradespeople to help fix them. Jo had great ideas regarding how to market our home at its best and was able to confidently advise us prior to placing it on the market which the keys areas were that would be worth spending moneyon in order to increase our homes value ( information we were seeking )
Our home sold at auction,and we were blown away by the price Jo achieved for us. It set a new record for similar homes in that area. Needless to say....we were thrilled!
