Having had limited and mostly negative experiences with real estate agents in the past, Janne was a breath of fresh air. Her honest and professional approach was very reassuring throughout the process. Janne took the time to understand what our needs and expectations were and then worked tirelessly to exceed them. Communicating regularly throughout the process to keep us 100% up to speed without being too intrusive, she kept the usual stress of selling a property to a minimum. To top it all off, we sold at auction and achieved a great price for the property with a quick and easy settlement to boot! We knew she was one of Bayleys top agents, now we understand why.

I would highly recommend Janne as your agent due to her professionalism and ease to deal with. I met with a number of different agents prior to meeting Janne but did not feel that they were the right fit, Janne was recommended to me by a neighbour. She arrived at the evaluation meeting (on a Friday night) well prepared with documented research of my area. She gave good advice and understood the market and this was proven in the Auction result with a sale price at the top end of what I was hoping for. I was overseas during most of the marketing period but Janne kept me up to date with her weekly marketing reports which analysed the leads and documented the follow up of these leads. This showed her perseverance and dedication not only to me but to her job. Throughout the campaign Janne was easy to deal with and easy to get hold of. Janne has been the best agent
I have dealt with over the years and I have no hesitation in highly recommending her to sell your property.
We have the pleasure to announce that Janne is by far the best all round real estate agent we have ever met!! Her sales skills are superior and her honesty and ethics are spot on. Don’t bother with anyone else but enlist her to help you sell your most precious possession. Thankyou once again Janne for selling our home, we wish you well in your already successful chosen career.

We were in an unusual predicament in that our property on Grand Drive, Orewa was in a totally different area to which we lived. We spoke with a number of agents but Janne stood out above the crowd with her professionalism, knowledge of the market in the area and for her approachability. Well, we were not disappointed! Janne's advice, planning, marketing, reporting, communication and attention to detail were unsurpassed during the auction programme. Sadly our house did not sell at auction but that didn't stop Janne in her tracks - she worked tirelessly to get our house sold and achieve the figure that we needed. So often you hear of agents giving up after an unsuccessful auction programme but not Janne and she sold our house shortly after utilising her excellent real estate skills. We would not hesitate to recommend Janne and would be happy to talk to anyone about our experience with her.
Mary and Steve King
It is with great pleasure that Glenys and I wish to acknowledge the stellar work that Janne has endured and achieved throughout our Buying and Selling campaigns. Janne's desire to define the boundaries became apparent when we were the successful bidder at Auction on 10 December 2014 and then to follow on and secure a fair sale price for our property on 16 March 2015. Performance and credibility along with significant passion and energy is how Glenys and I believe Janne's attributes combined to ensure a positive stress free result, hence going the extra mile was evident with the subsequent result. Many thanks goes to the Bayleys Branch Director-Licensee Kirsty Stevenson for her loyal support including her office staff. At any time please feel free to contact us (09) 4211809 for a personal reference on Janne to "Selling and Buying" Real Estate. Glenys and I wish Janne ongoing continued success with her excellent and dedicated Real Estate Career.
Glenys and Dave Dinneen
Janne was very prompt in returning our call and arranging for us, at short notice, to have an early viewing of the property, which had only just been advertised on the same day. With Janne’s helpful guidance, valuable advice and friendly support we were truly delighted when our pre-auction offer was accepted (this was only made possible because on Janne’s day off from work she exceeded all expectations by travelling to our workplaces to ensure the sale and purchase agreement was signed on time). We now excitedly look forward to moving into our new home and hope Janne will be able to find time in your busy schedule to visit! We will highly recommend Janne’s professional agency skills to all of our friends and acquaintances.
Mark and Christine Bettin
Ours was a “chance encounter” with Janne because at the time we’d come to the stage where we had to make a final decision on a new property, I found Janne’s flyer in our letterbox. We knew nothing of Janne prior. We arranged a time for her to come give us an assessment and I took an instant liking to her. I instinctively felt she was honest and trustworthy. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Janne to you if you are thinking of selling your property. Janne is extremely professional, positive and encouraging and most of all, honest. At no time during the 4 week campaign did she pressure us, but focussed instead on doing the best job she could possibly do for us. She listened to our concerns and soothed our nervousness at our weekly meetings during the campaign. Everything ran like clockwork in her capable hands. We have sold previous properties and Janne stands out as the best agent we've had. The Auctioneer, Gary Caldwell, did an excellent job at the auction and between Janne’s dedicated hard work in showcasing our home and Gary’s expertise, we achieved the most amazing price. We are delighted with the outcome.
Garry and Carol Miers
Thanks Janne for your commitment to selling our property in Orewa via the auction process. You were a delight to work with and the whole process was totally free of stress due to your calm manner and positive outlook. Come auction day the whole Bayleys team were professional and committed. Next time we look to sell we will give you a call.
Jo, Stu and Shanon Robertson
We would have no hesitation in recommending Janne Adams and her team at Bayleys, Orewa, for the professional and efficient manner in which our house was sold. We contacted Janne after two (unrelated) people had recommended her following dealings with her. From the outset Janne struck us as being friendly and genuinely interested in helping us achieve our goal of a quick and satisfying sale for all parties. Our house sold within 7 days of listing for a price we were very happy with.Should the need rise in the future we would happily entrust Janne to look after our best interests.
Terry and Raewyn Maddaford
Janne thank you, thank you, thank you. Wow, can’t stop saying WOW!! We feel so blessed to share in this journey with you, thank you again.Your integrity shone through, we always felt safe with you, your encouragement along the way, taking time to see us each week helped us on the journey of selling our family home. Talking through the different comments made from people coming through the open homes, you honoured and respected our Mum by caring and answering her questions, that gave her peace of mind. Thank you again for your professionalism in all that you did and your caring ways. It’s funny but the free pens were important to us. Such a little thing but your generosity enabling us to give one to each family member, was very kind and gave us a feeling of worth. Your wonderful admin lady Lynette went to extra trouble for us too by helping with the text and photos making our home stand out in its presentation. When I walked into the Bayleys office with my cheque for the advertising I was treated with huge respect from her and even offered a coffee which to me was over and above in my mind.So thank you Janne once again for our Bayleys experience and for the wonderful price you achieved for us.
Pam Morris, Nancy and Chris Morton
When we decided to put our house on the market in order to down-size to a apartment, we asked several different Agencies to view our home, so we could then decide who we wished to deal with. Janne met with us and we felt instantly that this lady would be the perfect choice. We were absolutely right! Janne was just amazing and not only did she work for us but with us. She listened to our comments about the sale of our much loved home and guided us as to how to obtain the best price for the property. Janne was so easy to work with and we felt we could absolutely trust her. She is totally honest and is a very determined lady! When Janne said she was positive she would sell our house within the very tight time-frame she wasn't kidding! We were staggered when not only did Janne come through within that time-frame but with multiple offers, more importantly, the price was higher than we expected. Janne does not believe in the "low price for a quick sale" ethic that some agents seem to have. In a word Janne you were SUBERB! We are so grateful to you for helping us to realise our dream move. We would advise anyone who is in need of a truly trustworthy agent to phone Janne Adams - it will be the best call you will ever make.
Pam and Tony Lock
I am writing to thank Janne for the excellent dedication she applied to both of our Orewa house sales this year. Living in Ashburton we felt very confident leaving the process in her capable hands and are grateful for the accurate reporting of each stage she supplied us with. She obviously is able to develop trusting relationships with vendors and purchasers alike which of course facilitates amicable sales. Her positive attitude and determined focus has resulted in the desired outcome of both our homes being SOLD.
We engaged Janne Adams twice to maket two quite different properties within a 12 month period. The common thread with both was a "challenging" market. From our first meeting it was clear that not only is Janne an excellent communicator, she is extremely well organised, knowledgeable, reliable and willing to go the extra mile. In our most recent property this meant liaising with tenants for open homes and viewing which was managed with great diplomacy. Janne worked diligently marketing both of our properties and not only achieved prices that were beyond our expectations but made the whole experience pleasurable. Simply put, if you want to sell your property we highly recommend Janne Adams. Thanks Janne for another great result!
Jon and Kathryn Dunn
We decided to sell our Orewa home so we asked Janne Adams from Bayleys to be our agent. Janne worked really hard for us having open homes each week and offering us the options to advertise and sell our house through the team at Bayleys Orewa. She constantly kept us up to date with feedback from the buyers who visited our home. We knew what was happening every step of the way. We would highly recommend Janne as a professional, enthusiastic and motivated salesperson and would have no hesitation in employing her services again in the future.
David, Amanda and Kate Wignell
When we decided to sell our property in Orewa, we approached several real estate companies and requested a marketing plan from each of them. Janne Adams from Bayleys Real Estate produced, in our opinion, by far the best marketing strategy, In addition to that, the company's back up support was another factor in our decision to choose Bayleys. Janne worked tirelessly on our behalf and the result that was produced by following her recommendations was highly successful. The auctioning process was straight forward and the property sold under the hammer. Bayleys were also able to negotiate the delayed settlement we were hoping to achieve. Janne displayed an efficient, friendly competence in all our dealings with her. In addition, as we expected, she provided all the necessary information to prospective purchasers. We would have no hesitation in recommending Janne to any prospective seller.
Valma and Gordon Pettit
When we rocked up to one of your open homes you welcomed us then, left us alone to view the property. But you didn't ignore us - before we left you asked us what we thought, not just so that you could give the vendor our feedback but so that you could learn what we were looking for. We told you what we liked and what we hoped to buy and you listened. You took our details and said you'd keep in touch. Not long after that first viewing you sent us your newsletter by email, keeping us informed about the market and current listings. It was a couple of months later that you called us - you had just viewed a new listing that you thought we'd love. Oh, and we did! You helped us so much. Even though we did not win the auction we are still grateful that we had the opportunity to bid for the property. You were a rock before, during and after the auction. The experience left us deflated (bruised) but it wasn't long before you called us again. New week we will be living in our new home. We are so excited! Without you, we would still be renting...and hoping, and scouring ugh the real estate websites. Thank you for listening to us. Thank you for keeping us in mind. Thank you for contacting us whenever you found a suitable property. We truly appreciate your warmth, honesty and consideration. We would have no hesitation in recommending you.
Tim & Debbie
We would sincerely like to thank you for your efforts in marketing and ultimately selling our property in Orewa. We knew we had made the right decision to list and sell our home with you when impressively you brought us a cash unconditional contract one week before the Auction was due. We think we were pretty demanding vendors and throughout the whole process your professionalism was outstanding. We can honestly say there is nothing we could fault - and we are picky! On behalf of Jon and myself, thank you once again, we are delighted with the result and would not hesitate in working with you again.
Julie, the girls and I would like to thank you over the recent sale of our house and also for finding us a lovely new home. You took our house on in a difficult market, but through your approach to the marketing, open homes and private viewings, you soon had an offer on the table which has enabled us to move on into our beautiful home which we are all so excited about. Yes we found the experience stressful but nowhere near as much in comparison to the last year that we spent with another agent that ended in a very disappointing outcome. Thanks again and we would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and call on you again in the future.

After being listed with a particular Real Estate Company for 15 months and having no success, we decided it was time for a change and chose Janne because of her recognition in the area and her professionalism. Janne had also been successful in selling our son't property a few months prior in what was considered to be a very tough market. As soon as we listed with Janne, she brought a number of her clients through our property, to no avail. Whilst unsuccessful, it had been several months since our earlier agent had brought anyone through. I believe that Janne's main attributes are her professionalism, communication, negotiation and networking skills, ability to match the property with the correct target market, openess and "dog with a bone" attitude. I do not agree with some of the policies of Bayleys, however, Janne understood that and still worked hard on our behalf, with a determination of "getting the job done".
I was fortunate to enlist the support of Janne when marketing my property. Janne responded promptly when contacted to list the property within her portfolio. She demonstrated total professionalism throughout the whole procedure from initial viewing, relating and communicating with both myself and the tenants who were renting the property. Her genuine desire to gain a sale and her ability to market the property in a less than buoyant property market was most appreciated. Bayleys provide a comprehensive marketing system involving high profile advertising, both with appropriate signage at the property and through advertising in the NZ Herald. Regular market feedback and accurate reporting following frequent open homes was much appreciated. Once a sale was imminent, Jannes skill fully managed both the vendor and purchaser through the process to reach a compromise relating to sale/purchase price, while maintaining total professionalism throughout the negotiations. It would give me great pleasure to, without reservation, recommend Janne to anyone who expects the very best that the Real Estate Industry is able to offer.
Both Liz and I would like to say a big thankyou for selling our property at Lakeside Drive. We are still amazed that you were able to sell it in less than 24 hours after listing with you, and for top dollar as well! It had been on the market with another company for 3 months with no success. If the sale had not happened that way we would not have been able to afford the home we had our heart set on. I am glad you are on our side when it comes to negotiating as you are very focused on working for the vendor. I will be sure to call you first when we next need to sell or buy a property.
Daryl, Liz and Ella
My wife Robyn and I would like to express our sincerest appreciation of your professional marketing and eventual sale of property by method of Auction. We highly appreciate your skills with assessment of current market trends and your capability of putting together a marketing package which really worked. We especially appreciate your skills with the photography and marketing, the open homes, your follow-up of the potential buyers and your professional weekly marketing reports. Thanks to your marketing skills we sold our apartment under the hammer on Auction night and our price expectations were exceeded. We are happy to recommend you to anyone and everyone for your charming and hospitable manners, your delightful nature and bove all your totally professional skills which call for a Par Excellence delivery.
We wish to thank Janne for her effort and very professional service, in the sale of Mum's property in Red Beach. We were kept well informed each week with a marketing report and buyer feedback. Janne's applied effort and market knowledge made the normally stressful event a smooth transaction and assisted in achieving the best possible outcome. Our recommendation for your services will be enthusiastically supported.

It is with pleasure that we write to endorse the professionalism and marketing efficiency of Janne Adams of Bayleys North of Auckland who acted as our agent in the sale of our apartment. This success was achieved 21 days from listing and prior to the intense advertising campaign which was about to kick in. The media during this period were full of negativity about property and financial markets yet Janne remained positive and reassuring while reporting progress along the way.
They say that buying and selling a home can be one of the most stressful events in your life. I believe there is much truth in that statement but with the right agent working with you, this can be mimimized. Having previously listed with another Real Estate company which did not eventuate in a sale, I contacted Janne Adams to sell my home. Impressively, the property sold in just 8 days after listing with Janne at Bayleys. Throughout the entire process I found Janne to be extremely professional, honest and her knowledge of the market was invaluable. At all times I was kept in touch with developments and I know Janne worked very hard to secure both deals. I would certainly recommend Janne to my friends and family and if I ever want to sell my dream home Janne will be my agent.
I would like to express my appreciation for the manner in which you assisted me in finding my new home and also the way you handled the sale of my property. At no time during the buying process did I feel pressured by you and when selling I was extremely impressed with the manner in which you handled and followed up prospective buyers keeping me fully informed and provided feedback from each "prospect" every step of the way. I have no hesitation in recommending you as a very professional agent who certainly goes the "extra mile" to assist your clients even after the transaction has finalised.
Darrin and I would like to thank you for all your efforts in selling our apartment and for achieving such a good result. We have been impressed with your professional, efficient, friendly and enthusiastic approach. We absolutely cannot fault you and highly recommend you to anyone who may wish to sell a property with as little stress as possible.
Dianne & Darrin Hawkes
I met Janne Adams from Bayleys when we purchased our apartment from her. We consequently decided we would be happy for her to sell our rental property for us in Stanmore Bay. Much to our amazement our home sold within only 6 days of listing with 7 multiple offers to choose from!! Not only that but it sold for $21,000 over the asking price. We are absolutely thrilled.Thank you Janne, we would have no hesitation in recommending your services to our friends and family or to anyone requiring an excellent Real Estate agent.
