About Me

Alison Carter

Ranked Number One Salesperson in the Ferrymead office every year since 1995

 

If the name sounds familiar, it’s because Alison Carter has received acclaim and recognition since day one of her Real Estate career. Ranked Number One Salesperson in the Ferrymead office every year since she began there in 1995 she has consistently featured amongst the city’s, and indeed the country’ top performing agents. With a sales and marketing background, she’s a highly driven and motivated professional. Representing New Zealand in Water Polo has given her a competitive edge and with this she also brings a refreshing mix of energy, friendliness and expertise to Real Estate.


While working city-wide, Alison’s specialty is in hill and seaside properties and living locally gives her clients the added benefit of being able to reach her easily and quickly when necessary, and provides Alison with an intimate knowledge of her specialist area.


Alison’s success has come about through hard work, being proactive, having innovative marketing skills, the ability to think laterally, and a strong desire to continually achieve fantastic results for her clients. She employs a full-time P.A. to look after the IT and administration side of the process thus leaving Alison free to be a ‘hands on’ agent, who prides herself on responding quickly, and exceeding expectations.


This versatility has seen her deal in all manner of properties – from first home buyers to investors, from developers to those seeking luxury properties. With such a diverse range of clientele, Alison has had to learn an equally varied skill set, and her clients are the beneficiaries of a wide service encompassing expert advice on presentation, interior design trends, council regulations, insurance and EQC issues and building codes, to name but a few.


Alison has proven time and time again to be the very best. And when dealing with your biggest asset, don’t you think you deserve the best?

If one word could sum up Carol Williams approach to Real Estate, it would be ‘sincere’. “I love getting to know my clients”, says Carol, “and developing a real understanding for their situation, their motivation, and the results they need to achieve. I believe I succeed when my clients succeed.”

 

Carol’s highly tuned interpersonal and communication skills place her in the ideal position to be able to negotiate a pathway through the process of buying and selling property. With her ability to relate to a diverse range of people and her cheerful, positive and calm nature, Carol ensures her clients are informed, confident and at ease throughout any transaction.

 

“I’m very tenacious”, she says, “I am persistent and committed, and will keep going until I achieve the desired results.” Carol is immensely proud of the fact that the bulk of her work comes from repeat clients and referrals. This has lead Carol to be acknowledged with several awards in the Harcourts Group over the past decade.

 

“I’ve always remained true to old school values with regard to treating others with respect and honesty”, says Carol “and as a result I have met some wonderful people and made great friends throughout my Real Estate career.”

 

Deriving huge satisfaction from helping her clients begin new chapters in their life, Carol is the ideal person to help sell your home if integrity, reliability and tenacity are attributes you hold dear.
