Thank you very much for the box of wine. Also thank you for being our agent. We were extremely happy with the whole process. We will happily recommend to our friends and family.

Have a lovely Christmas.

We would like to thank you for selling our house in such an efficient and thoughtful manner. How lucky we were in having your name referred to us by another satisfied client.  We were grateful that you listened and took notice of our wishes and we never felt under any pressure or anxiety during the whole selling process.The few very minor problems that arose were sorted out before we knew about them. At all times we felt you were 100% committed in achieving a very satisfactory result. You will be the first person we ring if we ever need your services again. We wish yourself and your wife Pip every success for the future.

It is a huge decision when choosing a Real estate company and then the agents to go with it.  I did ponder for some time because it is an important decision and finally chose Harcourt Cooper & Co in Milford.  The Agents I chose were William Tatana and Tony and Pip White.  I had been given these names while asking around.

Anyway,  once this was decided,  the process started.  There is no question that I made the right choice.  They showed me respect,  integrity and tenacity.  Their time was always given wholeheartedly to any occasion at hand without a fuss.  And on call twenty four seven.  As a bonus there  is the huge assistance of Harcourt Cooper & Co.

After forty-four years in my home in Milford, it was a very big challenge to move on. I was totally inexperienced in buying and selling property but thanks to the expert advice and guidance from Tony and Pip White, the exercise was completed on time and very well coordinated.

My sincere thanks to this team – Tony with his thorough business planning and follow up, and Pip with her bright disposition and willingness to fill the gaps and meet the deadlines were a pleasure to work with. I did appreciate their suggestions and valuable experience in the real estate market, and their efficiency and thoroughness made my sale and auction very straight forward. The little extras they offered and their desire to assist and follow through smartly impressed me greatly.

My sincere thanks to this professional team for a great job well done. Another satisfied client, and still good friends!

I have known Tony and Pip White for about 15 years and have sold many properties with them and Harcourts over that time, from the North Shore through to Red Beach.I had chosen a local agent from a different company to market my home in Greenhithe, but that agent was unable to secure an unconditional sale for me. I came back to Tony and Pip, who got the job done within 4 weeks, with a hammer sale at auction. There were a number of potential buyers at the auction, and I was pleased that they had managed to elicit some good interest despite the time of year and the inclemency of the weather.Tony was in regular contact with me throughout the 4 weeks of marketing my property, and I was confident that he was doing his very best to obtain a sale for me.I am very happy to recommend Tony and Pip’s services to anyone wishing to sell their property. They are a slick team, one which definitely knows how to deliver the required result, without pain or drama.

“We found the experience of selling our property at 58 Blakeborough Drive to be a lot less stressful than we imagined working with Tony White and his team. There was always good communication. They kept us informed of developments as they occurred and overall we found them all to be a lovely group of people. We would not hesitate to recommend them to other people.”

I recently decided to sell my 3 properties at 42, 44 and 46 Wolsley Ave. My house was on 42 and 44 and 46 were basically grass. A total size of about 2300sqm.  When choosing an agent my wife and I talked to 2 or 3 companies and we settled on Tony White from Harcourts in Milford because of his professional approach, non-pushy attitude and the overall plan for sale. Tony has a team of people working with him that assists in all aspects of the sale process.  We auctioned our house with a lead in (from memory) timeframe of about 5 weeks. During this time Harcourts brought through quite a large number of people and we went into the auction nervous but reasonably confident that we would get a sale. We did sell at an acceptable price to us.
We would be happy to recommend Tony White as your Real Estate Agent.

I would like to thank you Dayle, Tony and the team for your handling of the marketing and sale of 12 Morton Ave.

I particularly appreciated the short, targeted marketing campaign and number of open homes as well as your feedback and frequent communication. I was impressed by your ability to network with and bring in the number of agents, with buyers, present at the auction. The amount realised at the sale far exceeded my expectations and I am in no doubt that the hard work, enthusiasm and understanding you personally contributed to the whole sale process was the reason. Thanks a million, point one zero four.

I wish you, and the team at Harcourt’s Milford, many future successes.

Best Regards

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for your help over the last few months with our house search. And especially for a successful auction on Sunday.
It was a thrilling experience and we are so glad to have had you by our side in the auction assisting us through, every step of the way.
We managed to clinch it in the end.
We can’t wait to move in, and put our stamp on it.
I guess yesterday in the auction you were the number 1 sales person!!!!

Kind Regards




Thanks so much for everything with regards to Harley Road, it was a fantastic result, more than we could hope for and I appreciate your help on the day. A great team indeed!! I will be speaking up the Team White! (Quite glad the auction wasn’t today in the rain and we had it on Saturday!)

Thanks again,  Sarah

OMG… are the legend.  Well done.   Sarah Kim



I have no hesitation in recommending Tony White to those interested in selling their property.  Tony is friendly, approachable and hard working.  I appreciated his regular updates and the fact that he made use of other agents in the office to market my home.

Tony is committed to assisting vendors and I was extremely impressed with the quality of the marketing campaign.  Tony’s approach and the marketing of the property ensured that he achieved a highly satisfactory result after entering negotiations at auction.

GAIL AND DAVE are very happy after their house is sold, under the hammer!


AUGUST 2012: Another successful auction at 18 Brook Street, Milford

Thank you for selling our house so quickly and with such a good result! Tony White is a professional agent who kept us fully informed at all times. He conducted a successful marketing campaign and went the extra mile hosting additional Open Homes. His wife Pip is a wonderful asset who helped us feel at ease about the whole process. They make a great team and we recommend them to anybody who wants results. Kind regards, Wayne and Tania Simpson



You have done an amazing job and assisted with way more than your job description.  It was a seamless exercise in selling my flat through you and Harcourts.   What a great team!

Theresa Bosman, 3 The Avenue. Albany



Thank you for the gift and all your good work – Tony, Pip, Marilyn and Stephen.

Now that a New Year has come around we felt we should contact you regarding the sale of our house last year. Thank you for your assistance and endeavours to sell our property.  It was disappointing that we did not achieve a sale on this occasion- offers fell just short our requirements after extensive marketing.   It’s a pity that media hysteria over this type of construction effectively scuppered a sale.  Your skills, diligence and service in marketing our property were outstanding.  We were particularly impressed with your knowledge of marketing property online, as well as through mainstream media. The website you established, was effective in attracting offshore interest. It was satisfying for both you and I that buyers from Canada, Hong Kong and Australia after seeing the property online visited the home, and in the end that’s where the offers originated.

It was clear to us that Pip and you had a clear focus; you identified the market, wrote advertising copy that attracted the right buyers, got it published online and in editorial content in local papers and got the result. Just not quite good enough on this occasion, but through no fault of yours.

We felt we could trust you, and found that your service in getting back to us after buyers visited, and through regular market feedback was excellent.

Let’s hope that when we get you back once the house has been reclad, we get a different result.

We wish you the very best for 2012, and we will certainly recommend your services to our friends and colleagues.


Mike and Ann Stanbridge


Dear Tony,
Thank you so much for stepping in to be our auctioneer last night.  You did a superb job, we were thrilled as I had expected it to be tough – and it wasn’t!  I think we raised around $15,000 from the event and $6,600 from the auction which is an excellent result. We really appreciated your support.
Sarah Robinson


Now that the Christmas rush is over, I wanted to write to you and thank you very sincerely for the time and effort that you put in to the marketing and selling of our home. Both Graham and I were very aware that this exercise was a particularly tricky one for you, as well as for us, but it is thrilling to have the sale behind us so we can move ahead with our future plans. We were very impressed with your initial approach and the way you kept us up to date with regular telephone calls and written reports. It was also nice to have a little note left to let us know how many people had visited on each open home day. We felt Pip’s contribution was also excellent and we found her very pleasant and helpful to deal with.
Tony, at the beginning of our marketing exercise you promised you would give our property 100%. That you did, and more! We wish you all the very best for the future and we would not hesitate in recommending you to any one else looking for someone to market and sell their home.
Dianne and Graham Rice, Catalina Cres, Forrest Hill


I listed my house with Tony for a number of reasons, the most prominent being his obvious personal integrity. I trusted him. While my house took the average (at this point in time) six months to sell, during that time I was aware that he was determined to make a sale.His personal manner with me, and I am sure others, is always one that is positive and reassuring. There is no hesitation in recommending Tony; while I cannot assure the reader that he will sell their house in double quick time, no-one can do that, I can assure you that you are dealing with an honest, trustworthy person. Personally, I have enjoyed my association with Tony and wish him all the best in his future.
Sue M Hay, Sunset Road, Sunnynook


NEARLY $100,000 MORE!
Just a note of thanks for selling our house for such a great price! we would not hesitate to recommend Harcourts and Tony and Pip White to our friends and familyWe wanted to sell out house privately and save the commission. But when we got two offers at the same price we asked Tony for his advice. He sold it for nearly $100,000 more just 4 weeks later.
We also did not want to go to auction but it just seemed the right thing to do and Tony was so enthusiastic. We were amazed that over 200 people attended the auction and that we got such a good price it was featured on the front page of the NZ Herald.
We enjoyed working with Tony and with Harcourts and are very pleased to get such a wonderful price. Thank you so much.
Jerry Firth, 2 Commodore Parry Road, Milford


Lawrence and I wish to express our thanks to you and Harcourts for the energy and commitment you portrayed whilst selling our home in Castor Bay. We appreciate the time spent and we were impressed with your advertising skills. Your enthusiasm and humour led to an enjoyable association. All the best for future sales.
The Alcotts, 78 Beach Road, Castor Bay


When we were looking for an agent to sell our house, we were attracted to Pip and Tony White’s proven and very public track record of successful sales. They are well known and stand out in the Milford area. In our opinion they were agents who could sell properties quickly and achieved high prices for their vendors. We needed to sell our property quickly in order to secure our conditional contract on our new property. Tony and Pip recommended an auction to achieve this. We took their advice and are happy to report we sold on auction night. Not only did we achieve a fair price, we had an unconditional buyer and were able to move ahead with our plans without fuss or worry. In our opinion the successful sale of our house was not only the result of Pip and Tony directing us towards an auction strategy. The success was also due to their impeccable marketing plan focusing on likely buyers, their outstanding copywriting and advertising presentation and their access to real buyers in the market. Every open home attracted at least one group of interested buyers and we had around five bidders at our auction! Tony and Pip are no-fuss agents, a reflection of their high level of professionalism and experience in the real estate industry. We would recommend the Whites to sell your property ahead of any other agents and Harcourts ahead of any other agency.
Noel and Linda Dunningham, Nile Road, Milford


Just a quick note to say “thanks” and congratulations on achieving such a great result for us marketing the Woodstock property. You’ve both been a delight to work with and it is so refreshing to be alongside people who are passionate, professional, committed and outstanding at what they do. Well Done!
Kevin Dawkins, Campbells Bay


We would like to acknowledge the fantastic job you and your team did with the marketing and successful auctioning of our home at 7a Kenmure Ave Crown Hill. Your feedback and progress reports were great, we felt that you kept us in the loop and we had a positive feeling about the whole exercise reight from the start. All the agents from Harcourts that we dealt with were friendly and also very professional and we really appreciated getting a call before any of them brought buyers through the house. On the day of the auction we felt very confident with our auctioneer Campbell Dunoon and we were thrilled with the result.
Hans and Robyn Vaotago


I really appreciated your support, and will promote your services as often as I can, as I feel you went above and beyond…..
Janice, East Coast Road Redvale


Thank you for selling our home. We still cannot quite believe that it is sold! After being on the market for over three months with three other agents, we were beginning to think it wouldn’t go. The campaign was great and after keeping us fully informed, it was sold on auction day for our price! We were recommended to you by our family and we would recommend you again.
Thank you Tony, Pip and your team!
Mary & Selwyn Montgomery, 3/11 Montrose Tce, Mairangi Bay


Thank you both so much for the delicious chocolates, the yummy pizza, but most of all for your kindness and professionalism throughout the long process.
Sally Cain (purchaser), Dominion St, Takapuna


We wish to express our gratitude to Tony and his Team for the recent successful sale of our property. We were given sound advice on all aspects of the procedure, from the initial stages to its conclusion. Any stress to ourselves was alleviated during the sales period, by friendly and supportive help on a personal level.  It was refreshing to work with such a dedicated and professional team and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to others. With best wishes to you all for the future,

Yvonne and Brian Allen, East Coast Road, Northcross


I would like to voice my appreciation for the great job that Tony and his wonderful team have done by selling my property quickly and efficiently! Superb Professional Marketing. On behalf of Shirley and myself, I am writing to thank you for your superb professional marketing of our home at 111 Braemar Road, Castor Bay.  Naturally, we are delighted, with the final result at auction reflecting a sale substantially above earlier offers. Additionally, we wish to thank you and all your support team most sincerely for the kindness you showed at all times to two apprehensive elderly vendors facing the sale of the house they built and their home for the past 32 years. You guided us through a difficult period. In gratitude and with best wishes to you all for the future,
Shirley and Colin Stanbridge, Castor Bay



Mark and I are both so pleased with the outcome of yours and our combined efforts to make a change away from our unit. What a great way to sell a property! I will be singing the praises of Harcourts more than ever. Thanks again.
