Testimonials

Karin & Wayne
"We had a super auctioneer, Robert Tulp. Robert asked me what amount would make me happy? He wrote an amount on his hand and I told him my amount. He turned his hand around and they were exactly the same! He did an amazing auction for us and got the amount I had said. Happy sellers, auctioneer, agents and hopefully happy new owners..."
Viv & Nige
We also want to acknowledge the auctioneer who did a fantastic job on auction day.  Watching him (or listening behind closed doors) he was amazing.  Again so professional and we believe we got the best.

Dear Sue (Agent)..We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the time, assistance and hard work that you have put into selling our home for us. You, Robert Tulp (our favourite auctioneer) and the rest of the team at Harcourts have made a lasting impression upon us since during this journey. ...All this has resulted in an incredible result for us at the auction well beyond our expectations “ we are still recovering from the shock, albeit a very pleasant one.

I wanted to extend a heartfelt Thank You to you for the skill and strategy that you displayed last night in achieving the remarkable outcome on the property at 7 Gorrie Ave Epsom. The final figure was beyond my wildest dreams.  The skill that you showed in getting the property 'to market' was outstanding and I have to tell you my heart was pounding as each new bid was announced. Once the property was 'on the market' you were quite remarkable and I could not believe it as I watched the digits turn over on the screen that we were watching. The final figure was unexpected (and 24 hours prior to the auction absolutely unrealistic). I cannot thank you enough for the part that you played in achieving the final outcome not just on 7 Gorrie Ave but also on 1/747 New North Road that was auctioned on Monday evening. Robert, you have a unique skill. I appreciated you professionalism and guidance as you took me through the final part of the process. Thank you so much.

Robert, mate you were fantastic and very  impressive performance and a lot of people said if they ever want to sell their  house they will want you and your team....brilliant! The commitment and professionalism was outstanding and we are glad that Fran Marno recommended you guys for this event.

We certainly had tough auction yesterday and there is no word to describe my feeling when the auction starts. I now realized the market feelings about plaster home in NZ and understood how stressed the seller can be when their homes go to the market. The only thing which encourage me to stay strong is having Robert and you standing outside dealing with the buyers. Please accept my sincere thanks.
