Andy and I would like to thank Anthony so much for working his magic and getting that SOLD word in our hands so quickly and painlessly!!
Anthony was amazing to work with when selling our home, he made everything so easy and stress free!  We couldn't be happier. I said when we purchased our home in 2016 that Anthony would be the one we wanted to sell it with and he's exceeded expectation. 
We have no hesitation in recommending Anthony to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property.

Anthony Shaw is a professional agent & an asset to Bayleys Warkworth. Not many agents followed up with us but he kept us up to date on upcoming listings & was also not pushy. We have already recommended Anthony to a mutual friend and will continue to do so. We also managed to secure our new home which was one of Anthony's listings. Thanks again Anthony!

We would personally like to thanks and acknowledge our appreciation in the way in which Anthony assisted and finally concluded the sale on our Warkworth property. As you are aware, two other agencies attempted unsuccessfully to sell the property after involving expensive advertising campaigns, lengthy sessions of open homes and the like.
Anthony gave a very realistic market appreciation as to where a sale price would lie and was spot on. His attention to detail could not be faulted and his knowledge of real-estate protocols greatly assisted and brought about a successful sale.
We would highly recommend Anthony to future vendors for realistic appraisals and a successful conclusion to marketing their property. Every detail was handled in the most professional manner and he kept us informed throughout the process of the sale. Anthony and Bayleys receive our highest recommendation.

Having lived in Warkworth for many years, we knew just who to choose to market our home when it came time to sell.  With his excellent reputation, Anthony was completely professional but yet still approachable and full of energy and ideas.  Anthony worked tirelessly in the marketing of our home with many private viewings, open homes, countless email enquiries and calls, resulting in multiple bidders and a fantastic sale on auction day that we couldn’t be happier with. Thank you Anthony.

Anthony was both professional and realistic in his approach to selling our home.  He is a warm, friendly person who goes out of his way to help with all the questions that people like us ask.  Almost daily updates on the progression of any offers etc and all with a smile and lots of encouragement, as it is the first house that we have sold in New Zealand.  He was spot-on with his pricing of our home, which sold within the first week of listing. Great communication and helpful advice, he has an excellent knowledge of the local property market in Warkworth and surrounds. He's  "simply the best"!

From the moment we listed with Bayleys, Anthony impressed us with his honesty, clear communication and absolute dedication to getting the best outcome for the sale of our house.  He worked tirelessly behind the scenes, found solutions we never considered and made a stressful situation much easier, simply because we knew he was taking care of everything.  Anthony got us a fantastic result which left all parties happy, and made me realise that a decent real estate agent is worth their weight in gold. Thanks so much Ant.

I have known Anthony Shaw (Mackys Real Estate Ltd, Bayleys) for over 4 years and have found him to be reliable and courteous at all times. He has an astute understanding of the housing market in Warkworth and beyond and provided me with an accurate assessment of my property.
The advertising campaign progressed smoothly under Anthony’s supervision. The descriptions and accompanying photographs presented the house very positively and attracted a large number of potential buyers. Throughout the campaign Anthony was respectful of my feelings and at the auction demonstrated his skills in managing the process as well as providing me with excellent advice. I remain fully assured that Anthony works for the best interest of his clients and that my house sold at the most acceptable price at the time. Consequently, I have no doubt in recommending Anthony Shaw to any prospective buyer or seller.

We would like to recommend Anthony Shaw from Bayleys Real Estate.  We selected Anthony after meeting with several other local agents, Anthony stood out to us with his professionalism, detailed presentation and commitment to us as vendors.  Anthony was amazing at keeping us fully informed every step of the way. He was particularly respectful about arranging viewings and running the open homes. He gave us confidence and we felt listened to and well supported through the whole journey.

“We could not recommend Anthony Shaw highly enough. He sold our house within one day of signing up with him!!  We were very impressed with his professionalism and energy to not only help us buy a house but sell ours very quickly.”

“We recently purchased a property through Ant Shaw of Bayleys Warkworth and agreed without hesitation to supply a testimonial.  We first met Ant at a property we viewed 9 months previously and since then and up to now we have found him to be absolutely brilliant to deal with.  He has a respectful, honest and friendly manner backed up by a wealth of information and you always feel that you are getting the true story.  He gives you space to make your own decisions without trying to push you into something and nor is he one of those agents who ask more questions of you than you ask about the property you are viewing (and that gets pretty annoying over 3 years).  He totally understood the type of property we were after and ended up finding the perfect match for us.  We have been completely comfortable dealing with him at all times, whether property searching or going through the negotiating and signing up process and he was always prompt in following up with emails, texts or phone calls. Over the last 3 years we have looked at many properties and met many agents.  Ant is right up there with being one of the best to deal with and we were very, very happy to have bought with him at the end of it all.”

We found Anthony to be very professional in his approach to the sale of our property. His appraisal proved to be exactly where the house sat in the market and his knowledge of the area was reflected in the results. Anthony works hard for the vendor in achieving the best possible result and this is done due to his excellent negotiating skills. We have no hesitation in recommending Anthony, should you be thinking of buying or selling in the Warkworth area”.

“We have recently concluded a successful auction of our Warkworth property, with Anthony Shaw as the lead sales person managing the process.
Anthony made the process from initial meeting to the after auction process as stress free as possible. He ensured that we were kept informed every step of the way with phone calls, emails and texts. He conducted all of our Open Homes and updated us within an hour of completion as to how many groups had been through and comments made to him by potential purchasers.
Our property was tenanted during the initial period it was on the market. Our tenants fed back to us that Anthony treated them with respect and consideration and sensitivity at all times and they, and we really appreciated this. When the house became vacant, Anthony became the guardian of the empty house for us, which as Auckland based owners just removed all stress and anxiety relating to the house being empty.
We appreciated the comprehensive weekly reports that arrived by email with the weekly summary of contacts and comments documented.
On auction day, he prepared us as to the process and what was expected and required at the conclusion of the auction. We were thrilled with the result and Anthony appeared to be equally excited for us.
In summary - our experience with Bayleys, and Anthony Shaw exceeded our expectations. The thought of selling our property was daunting and Anthony made the whole process far easier than we could have anticipated. We trust his judgement and advice - he made a potentially stressful experience much easier than we could have imagined.”

We first met Anthony when he sold the house next door. His manner and enthusiasm were striking and he achieved a very satisfactory sale.
This was exactly what we wanted and our earlier impressions proved to be correct. We had never sold a house in New Zealand and we were guided wisely by Anthony through the procedures, ending with an Auction which was extremely successful. Anthony’s Marketing Strategy was outstanding and enthusiastic buyers were found. Throughout the selling process Anthony has kept us fully informed and frankly it was a pleasure to see him and to hear his regular reports.
All in all we would highly recommend Anthony to undertake a property sale, he can totally be relied on to protect his clients’ interests and achieve the results wanted.

We have recently sold our home with Anthony and our son also sold his property 18 months ago with an very  good outcome. We found Anthony extremely pleasant to deal with, kept us informed of all developments and very professional in his dealings.  We took his advice on sale price for house resulting in a sale in 3 weeks.  He knows the market very well and this was proved by the very quick sale which we were highly delighted with.  We would thoroughly recommend Anthony to any prospective clients in the sale of their property.  We cannot speak highly enough of him.  If you want an honest appraisal of your property he is definitely the person to contact.

We'd like to thank Anthony for achieving a fantastic result on the sale of our property at our recent Auction.  Anthony worked tirelessly to get many interested parties involved on auction day to achieve a premium sale price for us.  Anthony's attention to detail and professionalism is second to none.  Anthony did an excellent job of communicating feedback to us throughout the campaign process. We always knew what was happening at every stage. This is the third time we have worked with Anthony in both purchasing and selling property.  His expertise in the local area real estate market is fantastic.  We cannot recommend Anthony highly enough.

“I would love to recommend Anthony Shaw from Bayleys to anyone considering putting their house on the market.  In an industry which I have found it very hard to trust agents Anthony is the best I have come across.  He sticks to the facts rather than just telling you what you want to hear.  His communication was exemplary throughout the sale process even when it was just a 'nothing to report' phone call.  Anthony definitely earnt his commission and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again in the future.”

4 Lilburn Ave, Warkworth
Anthony Shaw was selected to sell our home.  We were impressed by both his professional and warm friendly approach, hence our selection out of a group of 4 other real estate agencies. He worked hard on a very well thought out marketing plan in order to capture as many interested parties possible - and achieved a staggering 60 groups come view the home! More-so, when the Auction day came, he engaged the interested parties attention, and supported them throughout the whole Auction process, achieving a wonderful result substantially more than reserve value. I wouldn't hesitate to refer anyone thinking of selling their home in the Warkworth area to use to sell their property.
Well done.

98 Matakana Rd 
With selling a top end, quality and lifestyle property, the correct real estate company and correct agent to showcase it was paramount. 
From the initial interview, through to the appraisal and presentation of the marketing plan, it was professional and top quality all the way. This same level of professionalism followed through every step of the process to completion of the sale and handover. We had the feeling that Bayleys were working for us as a vendor to get top dollar, more than a quick sale. We would have no problems in recommending anyone who is looking at selling to make contact with Anthony today.
Kind Regards

We had a lot of real estate agents to choose from but after doing our homework, Anthony Shaw from Bayleys stood head and shoulders above the rest due to his proven track record. We were working within a very tight timeframe and Anthony recommended an auction campaign which worked very well for us. We received a pre-auction offer resulting in the auction being brought forward, and on auction day, we had even more bidding which was fantastic. It’s certainly not all about choosing the cheapest agent to sell your biggest asset and Anthony clearly proved this. We couldn’t have asked for more! Anthony is such a professional, he kept us well informed throughout with regular reports and supported us every step of the way. If you’re looking at selling then we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

I have recently listed and sold my house at auction with Anthony from Bayleys Warkworth. I have been very impressed with the job done for me and I feel motivated to put into writing the exceptional quality of service to me and professionalism in his work. I have felt the whole selling process was totally stress-free thanks to Anthony, this was my 4th house I have sold, Anthony always kept me regularly informed every step of the way with regular weekly marketing meetings. I have dealt with a lot of agents and Anthony stands out a mile as the best of the best.

My wife and I recently settled on a new build. Anthony Shaw is the agent responsible for completing the sale to us representing Harbour City Building Company. I’m writing to you to compliment Anthony on his outstanding professional service to us throughout the entire process. 
Anthony exceeded our expectations facilitating negotiations with the builder to make alterations we requested possible. On numerous occasions he made himself available after hours and at weekends (with a smile, kind words and good advice) to provide access to allow us complete measurements etc so informed decisions could be made. We even had an after hours call out when the alarm couldn’t be reset, Anthony was kind enough to come over on a very cold night and help sort it out.  Thanks to Anthony’s assistance we found dealing with the builder, trades and the final move in to be a smooth and efficient process. We have no hesitation in recommending Anthony and Bayleys Warkworth to anyone considering buying or selling in the Rodney area.

We chose to sell our home with Anthony because he was open, honest and didn't use any "gimmicks" to promote himself or Bayleys. He'd done his research and presented a realistic view of the value of our property. Anthony listened to us and also presented good options and choices - which made decision making easier and quicker when it came to listing, advertising and ultimately selling our home.  
Anthony isn't your typical Real Estate agent which put us and potential buyers at ease. His communication skills were amazing. If Anthony said he would do something, it was done. His follow up with potential buyers was also very quick and thorough and the reports we received were honest and easy to read. There are many, many Real Estate Agents and Agencies to choose from. Anthony, out of 4 other agents we received appraisals from, was the right choice on so many levels. We'd be happy to speak with you in person if you'd like to chat about all the reasons why you should list with Anthony Shaw from Bayleys”.

Our first contact with Anthony Shaw was in February 2013 when we approached him for a valuation of our property as we were contemplating a move into a retirement village. His initial market appraisal was both comprehensive and professional and his analysis of where our property fitted in the market proved to be extremely accurate. In the twelve months or so it took to make up our minds to move, Anthony was informative, helpful and totally non invasive. Over the months he kept us fully informed of movements in the housing market and was honest and forthcoming about our possible outcome. His integrity and level of professionalism is of a high standard and he is very friendly and approachable. We would have no problem in recommending him to other.

After careful consideration of several options, we selected Anthony Shaw as real estate agent to market our property at 27 Clements Hill Lane near Warkworth. 
Having a considerable background of experience in the property and construction industry, as a quantity surveyor and project manager, I can with confidence rate Anthony’s levels of service as being of an exceptionally high standard. He guided us in a most professional way through the establishment of an effective marketing strategy and consulted with us on a regular basis throughout the marketing and sales campaign with care and diligence in our best interests. Anthony also took considerable care to maintain a highly skilled relationship with potential purchasers to generate and nurture their interests as well. The outcome was of benefit to all parties, from which we have no hesitation in recommending Anthony highly to anyone contemplating a property transaction.

Sharon and I have had the pleasure of dealing with Anthony Shaw both as purchasers and vendors. On both occasions Anthony went the extra mile and got us the result we were after, with a minimum of fuss. He kept us fully informed at every stage of the process, and we have no hesitation in recommending him as the go to guy in Warkworth real estate. We were upfront with our expectations, and had our purchase organised within a week, and also to our delight, Anthony had a sale organised within a fortnight.  If you want great service resulting in a great result, get in touch with Anthony.

My husband and I have dealt with Anthony Shaw and believe that he has provided us with the exceptional customer service throughout the whole process. Anthony was always polite, professional, very organised, knowledgeable about the property and local real estate and rental markets, kept us informed about his whereabouts (going on leave), helped us to communicate with the vendor and overall a pleasure to deal with. Hopefully it is not the last house we buy and next time Anthony Shaw will definitely be our go to agent! Keep up the great work!

Now that Bruce and I have settled down after our move, we have had time to reflect back upon the marketing and sale of our Matakana property with Bayleys. Firstly we would like to say how much we enjoyed working with Anthony Shaw. He is certainly an asset to your company and his hard work and exceptional communication skills are to be well commended. We felt completely at ease with him at all times and appreciated his trustworthy and honest manner which was always conducted in a professional way. His positive attitude kept us buoyed along at times with the usual stress that goes with selling a property. Anthony was always available at any time of the week if we had any concerns, and nothing was ever too much trouble. We also appreciated his securing of our present section when a previous one had fallen over at the last minute leaving us unsure of our future options. We have already recommended Anthony to friends and family when and if they consider selling, as a genuine trusted real estate agent and wish him all the best in his future with your company.

A “fine gentleman” is how I would describe Anthony who recently sold my property under the hammer at auction! Time was of the essence for me as I wanted to move closer to my family down south and so I was very impressed with how the sale was handled for me. The entire process was effortless, in fact I was able to relax and know that my property was in very capable hands. Experience does count! I was kept informed at all times, so at no stage was I daunted by the auction process – we even had multiple buyers bidding on the day, very exciting!  I would not hesitate to recommend Anthony to anyone who might be thinking about selling their home.

I successfully sold my tenanted residential property at 22B Coquette Street, Warkworth. The sale and purchase contract was managed by Anthony Shaw of Bayleys in the North's Warkworth office. I cannot speak highly enough of the professional conduct and attention given by Anthony, which included keeping me fully informed and discussing the sale process and outcomes at all times. With the challenges of the present market there is absolutely no doubt that the marketing initiatives and professional salesmanship and attention of Anthony resulted in the successful sale of my property. I would have no hesitation in using Anthony again for the selling of property.
