Testimonials

Some Real Estate agents advertise massively in newspapers and on billboards around the city to sell themselves. Others prefer to keep a lower profile and largely rely on word of mouth to do business. So it is with Glenis and Ralph who 24 years ago sold us our house in Cavendish Square and then before Christmas last year helped us sell it. It is a testament to their resilience, integrity and professionalism that they have remained in the competitive real estate business, Teamwork is the essence of their success and durability with Glenis providing the business insight. While Ralph with his building experience ensures that the house complies with council regulations and is well presented. With their combined experience and expertise they take much of the stress out of selling a house.

Selling our first home that we had occupied for 51 years, was traumatic. Glenis and Ralph Tilyard are an Inspirational Team. Their friendly approach and humour guided us throughout. We received reassurance every step of the way through the selling process. Glenis and Ralph were able to extend the benefits of their years of experience to us by offering advice and keeping us informed at all times. Their ability to communicate is exceptional. Without a doubt they are honest and professional. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone wishing to sell their home.
Stan and Pat Andis
Glenis and Ralph were recommended to us. Our experience completely justified that recommendation. From our first meeting until sale, we found Glenis and Ralph excellent to work with. They were always frank, happy to make helpful suggestions, and very efficient in arranging certificates of title, advertising text, tender documents etc. Glenis and Ralph are very experienced in Wellington property sales. That, together with Ralph's building background, gave us confidence in entrusting the sale of our house to them. We are happy to recommend the services of Glenis and Ralph Tilyard to anyone contemplating the sale of houses in Wellington.

In my dealings with Glenis and Ralph Tilyard I have always found them very accommodating in all aspects of my house sales. With the latest sale they had great communication with the body corporate, myself, and the purchaser to seal the deal. I have used Harcourts for the last three property sales and would therefore have no hesitation in highly recommending

I, personally, cannot speak highly enough of Glenis Tilyard in the way she took us through every step to prepare my brother’s property for sale and thanks to her, and Ralph, we achieved a result better than we anticipated. On behalf of the executors I thank them for their patience and understanding in handling my brother’s property with sensitivity and respect. We were looked after, kept informed of progress and well advised. I have confidence in recommending them to prospective clients.

If you are beginning a journey of buying or selling your home I wholeheartedly recommend Glenis and Ralph Tilyard. My journey began in the middle of the recession, needing to sell the family home. It concluded nine months later following the purchase of a new home. Throughout this lengthy period, especially when searching for a new home to meet my needs, Glenis and Ralph were the only real estate agents in the Wellington region with whom I came in contact, who kept in regular dialogue with me.They activly listened to my needs and worked tirelessly searching and canvassing homes. At no stage did I feel pressured or manipulated into decisions.

Derek and Tenise
After having bought our lovely Wellington retreat several years ago through Glenis and Ralph Tilyard, we were delighted to team up with them again recently to sell our home when work opportunities forced us to move north. Glenis and Ralph are friendly, dedicated, professional and have a wealth of experience in the Wellington market. They are meticulous in their efforts to connect buyers with sellers and we were grateful that they managed the whole sale process for us from beginning to end given we were selling from out of town. Given our experience with Glenis and Ralph as both buyers and sellers of a property, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them as your agent.
Fran and Damien
Glenis and Ralph were involved in the purchase of my current house and the sale of my previous house. I found them both very helpful, sincere and trustworthy. They kept me informed and involved during the entire process, for which I was very grateful. Their approach was consultative and all throughout, I thought they had my best interests at heart. If I had to go through the process again, I would ask them to represent me, and I have no problem in recommending them to anyone buying or selling their home.
