Introducing Francine Sweet

On a small island, part of the Hauraki Gulf and an extension of Auckland, meet Francine with a natural flair and passion for property and a wonderful advocate for Waiheke Island.

What do past clients say:
‘Francine stands out head and shoulders… she is fresh and enthusiastic, has integrity, brains and a positive attitude, which pretty much sums up why you will enjoy the experience buying and selling with Francine’

Francine says… I prefer to work with a small, diverse, fast-moving portfolio of property, emphasizing quality marketing, effective sales methods and short intense campaigns. This allows your property to be highlighted, not lost in a morass of listings and it also ensures I can give you uncompromised service and results.

My background in selling premium New Zealand wine and successively being involved in an international dance business, means I bring unique personal skills to bear on your Waiheke experience. This is valuable in an island community which is increasingly cosmopolitan, diverse and caters for all walks of life.

Another client said…
‘The wide terms of reference of her business experience allowed us to fast-track… Francine was an excellent communicator all round and able to adapt to a wide variety of personality types. She built rapport with everyone and was determined not to be stalled, furthermore, she exercised a discernment both creative and effective in removing obstacles.’

In closing, I am extremely proud to develop further the Waiheke extension to the Auckland office of Boulgaris Realty. The luxury brand of Boulgaris Realty and the extensive database the company offers both locally and internationally is an absolute benefit to my clients, particularly when selling.

Re: The sale of Junction Road, Palm Beach
"Francine was recommended to us by family, when we were buying a home on Waiheke Island. She proved to be most helpful and went far beyond the call of duty, taking us to and fro from the ferry several times and providing additional information and photos. She listened carefully to our priorities, remained cheerful and generous of her time throughout the process, and managed to make what is a stressful event, pleasurable. The bonus was that we were able to buy the house we wanted. We heartily recommend Francine to anyone wanting top quality service combined with empathy and experience."

Re: The sale of 13 Giles Road, Ostend
Dear Francine,

I just wanted to thank you so much for the work you put in to selling our home. Your guidance and advice were invaluable, as was your kindness and support, taking some of the stress out of what is usually a very stressful situation.

Your knowledge of the Waiheke market and vast client base meant an unconditional sale for us in just over 3 weeks!
I would recommend you in a heartbeat to anyone wanting to sell their home on Waiheke.

I really appreciated your gentle but determined manner.

Yours Gratefully

Re: The sale of 3 Te Toki Road, Ostend
To whom it may concern,

We have just sold our house in the most speedy and painless way possible thanks to Francine Sweet of Boulgaris Realty.

Francine was aware that it was our intention to put our house on the market in the very near future and so she kept in touch with us on a regular basis. Just prior to marketing the house Francine brought a prospective buyer to view the property. Within a few days an agreement to purchase had been settled.

It was through Francine’s extensive knowledge of the local market and negotiating skills that we achieved the price which we had hoped to achieve through marketing. Not having to go through the expense of marketing and inconvenience of open homes was a huge relief.

Francine was empathetic to the circumstances of our sale and it was her positive attitude, belief in the property and engaging personality that resulted in such a satisfactory outcome.

We have no hesitation in recommending Francine as an honest, professional, hardworking agent who has the enthusiasm to go the extra mile.

Kind regards,

Michael and Kathleen

Re: The sale of 444 Sea View Road, Onetangi
To whom it may concern,

It was a pleasure working with Francine Sweet on the sale of our property on Waiheke Island.
Francine's tireless professional service and commitment was second to none.

Her drive,attention to detail and going the extra mile to obtain information for both parties gave her the X factor that few people have. It made her stand out from many of the other agents I have dealt with over the years.

I will undoubtedly recommend her to friends and family and I would like to pass on my thanks to her for doing such a great job.

Despite the slowing of the market, I must confess the luxury market still has a shortage of quality high end stock in the $5m to $10m price range in which our company flourishes.
