The two most important reasons we chose Steen were that when we were looking for a home he was an agent who stood out in trying to help us find a home, and when we came to sell we were impressed with his approach, tailored for our needs, his flexibility, and his desire to remove the pressure of a house sale.Steen is charismatic with open and honest approach both as a buyer and seller. We would of course recommend Steen to any prospective buyer.

We would like to congratulate your agents Steen and Simon and their support team for their professionalism and expertise in selling our property. Steen’s advice on getting the property ready for the market along with his proposal for the advertising package coupled with his sensitivity to the perspective of his seller was greatly appreciated. He was determined and thorough on follow up on all possible buyers and communicated well with both potential buyers and ourselves on a regular basis. Further Jacqlyn was charming, efficient and most helpful with following through on the myriad of tasks needed behind the scenes. Simon sold the property when Steen went overseas and he chose an excellent replacement, as he operated in the same determined manner, with a skilful capacity to work the buyer and the seller for the best possible outcome. We thank your team for their hard work and professional service.

Steen's professionalism and unwavered intense work ethic generated strong interest and led us to a highly successful conclusion. We valued his experience and expertise and would rate Steen Nielsen as the leading industry professional. In recognition of his efforts we strongly recommend you contact Steen Nielsen for your next real estate experience.
Having had our house on the market for quite some time using two other real estate companies with not one offer, we were not overly optimistic of the chances of getting a sale with yet another real estate company. We were pleasantly surprised to get a sale within five weeks of listing our property with Steen Nielsen from Ray White Remuera. If only we had listed with him in the first place! There is no wonder he is a star achiever in the world of real estate as he has many attributes and qualities that make him stand out from the rest. Steen provides excellent communication with both vendors and purchasers. Every time he has a viewing or open home he would leave a message in a card about the visit (something no one else has ever done), following up with a phone call later in the day. His detailed vendor reports were emailed promptly each week and followed up with a weekly meeting with us to discuss this further. In between, there were frequent phone calls to keep us up to date and at no time did we feel that we were lacking in knowledge about what was going on. What we particularly liked was Steen’s inclusion of our opinions and input along the way. He was the only agent who sat down with us right at the beginning and wanted to hear our story with our house – why we bought it, what we liked about it, what we would miss when we moved and what we felt were the good points and the bad points. From this point onwards we always felt it was a team effort. Steen’s total professionalism in every aspect of the process impressed us. He was thorough and persistent, but in a non-aggressive way, leaving no stone (or potential purchaser) unturned. He remained focussed on the goal of selling our home. He is always pleasant and cheerful to deal with and displays great people skills. He shows a caring and warm personality and was very supportive during the difficult negotiation time. Steen is very innovative in his marketing approach as evidenced by his decision to use aerial photography to give a view of our house not previously used – to great effect. He managed to get us an editorial with the New Zealand Herald Homes on Saturday which gave our place huge exposure. Every week he changed both the wording and the photographs used in the ads, keeping it fresh and appealing. As part of Ray White Remuera, Steen is backed up by a respected franchise and in particular by the franchisee owner, Megan Jaffe, who also provided us with support through the process. All in all, Steen and the Ray White team did a tremendous job and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to people looking to sell their properties. He will do an excellent job.

We recently had the immense privilege of working with Steen Nielsen and his team on the sale of our Remuera property. Not only is Steen the consummate professional he is also engaging, patient and unflappable - qualities that were critical when he was marketing our property and negotiating with prospective purchasers on our behalf. Steen worked extremely hard to sell our property which was, in part, attributed to the fact that we were based overseas at the time. He was terrific at keeping us updated on progress and was always available to talk through any questions we had. Throughout the marketing and sales process we felt that Steen always acted in our best interests. This enabled us to trust him implicitly when the time came to sell the property and resulted in us feeling far less stressed than otherwise would have been the case. We truly feel that very few agents could have even come close to achieving the result that Steen obtained for us due to his terrific interpersonal skills and exceptional negotiating abilities. Steen Nielsen you are a legend and we would engage you again in a heartbeat!

My partner and I recently both sold and purchased through Steen Nielsen. I have been fairly active in the real-estate market over the last decade and have experienced various caliber agents. Steen always made us feel valued and serviced our calls and enquiries in a very prompt and friendly manner even some weeks following settlement when he no longer stood to gain from further involvement. Steen always performed to a high standard leaving my partner and I very satisfied with the overall experience. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Steen Nielsen to you in his capacity as a real-estate agent.
Selling your home is one of the highest stress situations in life. Coupled with that is appointing a Real Estate Agent to prepare, represent, market and sell your home. A lot of people will say it is all about luck. Luck in getting your home on the market at the right time and for the right price. Luck in getting the correct potential buyers to see the marketing and walk through your door and luck in finally getting that sale nailed. When you engage Steen Nielsen as your Agent, luck is no longer a part of this situation. You will have appointed the consummate professional of Real Estate Agents who truly works for you – the vendor. Without hesitation I recommend Steen to you and without doubt he is absolutely my first choice as my Agent now and will always be so in the future. His professionalism and genuine caring, open attitude ensured peace of mind and complete trust in him, his process and his team. I always knew exactly what was happening with the marketing programme and during the sale negotiation process. The reports following each Open Home and our weekly meeting meant that I was fully informed of where we were at. And it was a “we” - Steen is on your team and works tirelessly to deliver the best result for you. There is (in my opinion) no other Agent that could have delivered the result that he did for me. It is in your own best interest to remove any element of luck in selling your home. By appointing Steen Nielsen as your Agent, you will do exactly that.
'We recently engaged Steen Nielsen from Ray White Remuera to market our property in Remuera. Though not optimistic for a successful sale in the present economic climate, we were pleasantly surprised our property sold at auction at a level that exceeded our price expectations. Steen did a great job for us in what proved to be a painless process.'
I followed Steen's marketing of two properties in the area and came to his open homes. Right from the start I was very impressed with the way he marketed the properties and how he changed the marketing week to week. I went to his open homes and I was pleased to see that not only was he an excellent marketer but his level of service and follow up was impeccable. As a result I chose to engage Steen to sell my own property. I knew it would be a challenging property to sell but based on Steen's recommendations we not only attracted large numbers of buyers to the property but on auction day we had multiple buyers prepared to bid. The result was a sale under the hammer. I look forward to working closely with Steen again in the future and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in the market to sell or buy a home.
