What my clients say...


Wish to duplicate Annamaria and Matt’s regarding sale through Marty and Micky. We were also skeptical of the Auction process but decided to try it and trusted Marty’s advise. Right from the very beginning Marty and Micky were positive and quickly identified the true asset within our property and simply “believed in it”. This is an essential quality required when selecting an agent for the sale of your home. Surprisingly, we hadn’t yet observed such a quality in previous agents we have used before. For this reason alone I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Marty and Micky.

Mr Marty Ritchie and Mr Micky Limmer conducted the sale of our home in an expedient and efficient way which put my husband and I at ease from the start to finish of the sale and auction of our home. We would definitely recommend them to all our friends neighbours in the Aotea area
Maureen & Jack: SOLD 7 Tasman Close, Aotea - May 2019
Marty and Micky were referred to me by 2 of my friends, who highly recommended them as excellent people to sell my house. From the beginning it was an enjoyable experience and I gained good confidence very early in our dealings that they were experts in their field and that I could readily leave matters in their hands, and be secure in knowing that they would achieve a good outcome for me. Getting the house ready for sale, Marty and Micky promptly articulated a marketing plan that immediately aligned with my aspirations and from the get go, they ensured that implementation of the plan was undertaken every step of the way both effectively and efficiently. Where this was necessary, they successfully sourced trade expertise from their pool of tradies and service providers to carry out essential repairs, maintenance works and staging. All activities on this front were so well coordinated and done and dusted to high standards over a compressed period of time and for me, it was such a smooth, hassle-free process. Selling your house is a big deal potentially fraught with all manner of issues. These guys did a supremely excellent job for me. I was impressed with their attentiveness, the high quality of their advice, their expertise, their availability, their professionalism, and in the process, I quite quickly became aware of their solid reputation in their industry. Bottom line is they delivered an outstanding outcome for me that exceeded my expectations. I am so glad that I chose them to sell my house and without hesitation, I would highly recommend them to everyone!

We are beyond grateful for the work of Marty, Micky and the Harcourts team. From the moment we met, you showed professionalism, knowledge, integrity and enthusiasm. Throughout the marketing process you gave us guidance and kept is well informed. You eased our tensions on auction day and delivered a result we never imagined possible. You didn't over promise and you definitely over delivered. Thank you,
Lauren & James Barnsley - 2 Ayr Place, Papakowhai SOLD March 2019
“We recently sold our property with Marty Ritchie and Micky Limmer of Harcourts Paramata. Right from the beginning, both Marty and Micky were extremely professional. They way they talked about our property, how it could be effectively marketed and how an auction was the best option for us immediately made us want to choose them over other agencies to list with. Throughout the process they, or one of the team were in constant contact we were kept up to date with weekly reports and we felt going into the auction that we were in good hands. Auction day blew us away, we felt they worked hard for us to achieve the best possible price for our property and we couldn’t be happier with the result. As far as we are concerned there is only one agent to list with in Aotea, and thats Marty Richie and Micky Limmer. Glenda and Matt”

We engaged Marty & the team at Harcourts to sell our property in Aotea. We needed a quick sale so we went to the local experts to get the job done. They completely exceed all our expectations and did a fantastic job selling our house. If you want your place sold, they have the team to do it!

We are very happy with the sale of our house and would like to extend a big thanks to the team, it has been great working with you all. We really appreciated working with experts, right from the initial meeting we knew Marty was the man for the job and with the addition of Micky, even better. They were available right from start to finish to help us plan, give us updates and advice. Execution was faultless and result was fantastic. We wish you all the best for the future.

We have been impressed with the service provided by Micky & Marty and the rest of the Harcourts team. They have been very professional and always available to answer questions and explain the next step in the process. Thanks for making the sale of our house so stress free.
Rebekah & Julian - 14 Abel Glen, Aotea - SOLD Feb 2018
Dealing with Marty and the team was a joy. Their attention to detail and comprehensive marketing process meant that no stone was left unturned, and we felt that our property had the best possible chance to reach it’s potential. In particular, we wish to acknowledge the work of Micky Limmer. Micky is the ultimate professional – nothing was too much trouble, very clear and timely in communication, and he is very pleasant to deal with. We give Marty and the team our highest recommendation.
David and Carmel Keane - Moana Road, SOLD December 2017
Just sold our house with Marty, Mickey & the Harcourts Team – It been an absolute pleasure dealing with them. Professional and hardworking, with local market knowledge you just can’t beat. They took all the stress out of the sale knowing it was in good hands. We would have no hesitation at recommending them to ANY person selling their house… They Definitely work hard for the vendor to get the BEST price the market dictates. Hayden & Alex
Hayden & Alex 5 Canary Way SOLD 9th November 2017
We chose Marty and his Harcourt’s team to sell our house not only because Marty was a huge help when we were first looking to move to Aotea back in 2010 but also because there was really only one choice in Aotea in that pretty much every real estate sign we have seen over 7 years in Aotea was Marty. The advertising campaign was extremely well executed and drove a significant amount of interest in our place which is all you can ask. We knew we would be getting Marty’s expertise but it wasn’t until we got into the process that we understood what a huge bonus it was to have Leanne, Leanne and Paula as part of the team. Leanne Bunnell-Haywood in particular was brilliant to deal with in relation to the Open Homes and setting up appointments outside of this always giving us plenty of notice so we could make sure the house was presented well.. We went to auction and had a great turnout which is testament to Marty and Leanne’s hard work in selling our house to potential purchases. Marty was great in talking us through what to expect leading into and on the day. With a very successful result on auction day we walked away very happy. We absolutely recommend Marty and his team and cannot speak more highly of our experience with them.
Cameron & Angela Good - 101 Aotea Drive, Aotea
We found the handling of the sale very professional. Marty and Micky obviously knew what they were doing and gave good advice from the very beginning. We found them both pleasant and easy to deal with. It was great having the whole process over so quickly and clear outlines given of what would happen when. And of course we are very pleased with the final outcome. We would not hesitate to use their experience again or recommend them to others.
Lyndel Borrel - 8 Hukatai Place, Elsdon
I found Marty and the team to be highly professional, responsive as they helpfully navigated us through the selling process which was new to us. They kept us well informed along the way and listened to our perspectives in a very respectful and considered way. I would have no hesitation in recommending Marty and the team to others considering selling their home. Kind regards Anna

Hello Sumner Terrace 😃 Cant wait to get unpacking and arranging furniture in a house I have fallen in love with, going to every open home and private viewing of this fabulous home that is now ours ❤️ Mark and I would like to share our gratitude to one of the best customer experiences we have ever encountered 👏🏻 We could not have made this possible without Marty Ritchie and his super star team - thats you Leanne Bunnell-Haywood!! 👍🏻 A legend amongst Real Estate Agents and for good reason. From the selling of our home, to the countless phone calls, emails and messaging, to letting go and letting you do your job and trusting the process, and for finding our new home. You have made this whole process an easy flow of steps that have progressed naturally the whole way through. Your genuine, easy going approach has suited our personalities and that has made this experience such a fun and exciting time rather than a stressful one. Marty heres to you and your team, even down to the auctioneer Wayne and photographer from Open2View, Dan 👍🏻 Meeting all of you has been such a pleasure, Harcourts are extremely lucky to have such an amazing person and team working for them. I know that we will continue to keep in touch, (as you said "your full of bright ideas" and you do live just around the corner!). I can guarantee that I will be letting everyone know of our fantastic experience not just in the interim but for a very very long time to come 😀 From Mark , Andrea and Charlotte, THANK YOU! 🔑 🏠🔑🏠 #underthehammer

Steve & Glenda Wightman
"Outstanding job" 37 CLUNY ROAD sold at auction today. 37 years of good times - it really is the end of an era and has been an emotional day. A huge shout out to Marty Ritchie, Leanne Platt and their team at Harcourts Paremata, you guys rock and did an outstanding job and got us a fabulous result today.
Leeanne, Steve & Debbie
Entrusting Marty with the sale of our house was one of the best decisions we have ever made. From the first appraisal he put us at ease & gave us realistic confidence. Under his advice we auctioned our house & were delighted with the result. Marty & his team were very professional, clear communicators & fun to work with. The team & other Harcourts agents were focused & flexible, from the beginning of the marketing campaign to the end of the auction & beyond. Throughout the process he was always available, his calming, reassuring personality a true asset. We would without hesitation recommend Marty & his team. We are grateful to have worked with them. Thanks Marty from the bottom of our hearts!
Sarah & Matty
Your team did an awesome job! I trusted Marty right from the beginning & he was right & achieved a fantastic result.
Fran Scoley
Marty in our first meeting with you, your passion, positive attitude, and enthusiasm at seeing our property encouraged us to enter into the property market and list our house for sale with you. Your expertise and knowledge in the field of real estate and knowledge of the local property market inspired us to sell our house in a market that was considered to be at the time ‘a little flat’ for those wanting to sell their property. At all times you were positive yet honest which was greatly appreciated and you guided us through the process of selling our property through Auction. We were a little reluctant to undertake the Auction process as we were unfamiliar with this type of sales strategy, but with Marty’s guidance, support and open communication, and overall enthusiasm as to the success of the Auction process we went with this strategy. And my husband and I are pleased we did, as the outcome and process involved with the auction was very positive and at times exciting to be a part of. We would highly recommend Marty and his team to any one listing there house for sale. Thank you once again Marty, for helping us to achieve our dream.
Justine & Aaron
Dear Marty, Leanne, Paula & Leanne, We are writing to express our sincere appreciation of the outstanding service provided by Marty and team in marketing our property through to it's sale. We found the service propfessional in every respect, and your Harcourts team attentive and respectful of our wishes throughout the whole process of open days, visits from prospective purchasers leading up to the final ssale. While Marty's willingness to always "go the extra mile", is well known in the area, we also want to acknowledge the support people which makes the overall service such a success. Thanks to your collective efforts, we got the result we wanted and we doubt whether the same result could have been achieved by any other agency.
Sandy & Issy
Just a quick note to express our appreciation on the recent sale of our property in Ranui Heights. From the initial appraisal and helpful, practical advice on what improvements should be made, through to the weekly reporting and the pre and on-the-day auction support we can't fault the experience at all. Just a fantastic team, calm in the face of CCC hiccups and pro-active in arranging LIM and Builders reports on our behalf. Honestly made the experience, if not a pleasure in the strictest sense of the word, at least an as pain-free as possible experience!! The team were frighteningly accurate in their appraisals of both expected price at auction and return on improvement investment which was fantastic. Expectations were set and delivered to. Many thanks to Marty, Gavin and Leeann. We will be recommending you all over town!! Now we look forward to working with you on a house to purchase :)
Brenda & Nick
Marty really impressed my wife and I when he sold our home recently. The market had been super slow to say the least, and from our first meeting his positive attitude to a successful result was infectious. I believe it is this attitude that makes him so successful, the buyers must be able to sense it. Mary suggested the auction process. My wife was not 100% comfortable at first, however, after Marty explained the benefits of selling by auction we decided to give it a go. We sold our home for a sum 10% higher than we had ever hoped for. The process was seamless and I would highly recommend both Marty and the auction process to anyone considering selling.
