"From our first meeting with Nicole we were impressed by her professional, personable attitude, her attention to detail and impressive marketing ideas for our property. Nicole recognises that selling a property is very much a team effort, from the outset she was confident that she could find us a buyer and within a week of listing the property, Nicole had used her impressive negotiating skills to conclude the sale of our house. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nicole and Colliers International as the agents with the ability and know how to secure the sale of your property." Howard
“The reason I chose to work with Colliers was a no-brainer for me - they have an amazing team of long-term locals who are all selling your home, a strong worldwide brand and their marketing is of a high quality. Having a team of 10 awesome agents working for you verses 1 speaks for itself. Each agent has their own book of buyers ready to go - that fact alone is a major selling point. Best decision I made, so so happy and satisfied with the wonderful team at Colliers!” Natalie
“Nicole was extremely helpful and professional throughout the sale of our home. Communication was excellent at all times and the whole process was made easy and stress free.” Trudi & Doug
"Nicole was brilliant, very receptive to our needs. She quickly established what we were looking for, and chose properties for us to view accordingly. Nicole's quick footwork meant we were able to secure our amazing house in Frankton on our second day of looking." Paul
"It is with pleasure and gratitude that we share comments on our experience with Nicole Bell. Throughout the selling process Nicole was incredible, she is very professional and friendly. She was pleasant to be around and always kept a kind but realistic demeanour. Not all situations are alike. Nicole was patient and she gave wise counsel along the way. The end result superseded our expectations. Thank you Nicole, we are incredibly grateful." Dunn family
"Many thanks to Nicole and Fred for all the assistance provided in getting our home to market. Their professional guidance, reliability and attention to every detail confirmed our belief that they were the company to sell the property." Raewyn & Terry
"Nicole has been an absolute treasure and we would have no hesitation in recommending her to sell your house. Ours turned into a bit of a long running affair but we got there in the end, and it was Nicole that was key in getting this across the line, so thanks Miss Nicole for making what became a frustrating process less stressful." Tracy & Greg
“We originally sent a few emails out to agents in Queenstown and went with Nicole Bell as we always prefer quick communication when doing business. Throughout the process Nicole was great with communication and marketed our house professionally both online and hardcopy. Right up to Auction Day, Nicole made us feel very calm and positive for Auction Day. We ended up setting a record for Lake Hayes Estate. Richie, the Auctioneer, was the finishing touch to a remarkable team that left us with a remarkable result." Josh & Kate
"Nicole was amazing!" Julie
"She nailed it! Thanks Nicole, extremely stoked with the whole campaign. From the initial consultation, right through to auction day everything was made perfectly clear. It was a pleasure to have Nicole as my agent as she is professional, informative and available at the drop of a hat. I had no difficulty choosing Nicole as my agent right from the start. Having lived and worked in Queenstown in excess of 10 years and having strong working relationships with many of the agents in Queenstown, Nicole was a clear choice in terms of personality and a very driven nature. It was obvious I had made the right choice when the Open Homes started. Plenty of interest, great buyer feedback and of course an epic result. If you want to sell your home for the least inconvenience and the best price, I highly recommend you call in Nicole." Kate
“We would highly recommend listing your property with Nicole Bell. Our month-long auction campaign was painless. Not only did we have Nicole’s constant attention, but we also had the support of the entire team; they were respectful, on time and did a great job at minimising disruption to our household. Nicole’s extensive sales and marketing experience was evidenced by the large amount of interest she brought to our auction resulting in extremely happy vendors, one happy buyer and several sad losers on the day. Nicole has in depth knowledge of the Arrowtown and Queenstown property markets and if you list with her you can be sure of a professional, efficient campaign designed to provide you with the ideal outcome.” Jo & Steve
"We had the pleasure of dealing with Nicole for the sale of our property, and we could not be happier. She was extremely helpful and had great advice right from the start. Nicole was great at keeping in touch and always available when needed, even with our long work hours she was there for us. We truly felt from the beginning that we could trust her and that she had our best interests at heart. We would recommend her services to anyone. The whole process was very easy and stress free and I look forward to keeping in touch with her in the future." Gina & Warren
"Nicole Bell demonstrated complete and thorough knowledge on the property market and current trends. Nicole continued to keep me updated and whilst I had no intention to sell my property it became apparent that Nicole had a strong book of buyers and presented us with attractive interest for our property. Throughout the whole process Nicole was very professional and informative with her communication. I was impressed how transparent she was regarding all facets of the successful negotiation. I have no problems in recommending using Nicole for either buying or selling whether it be now or in the future." Cameron
“I have known Nicole before she became a Real Estate agent so I already knew her to be a very honest and caring person. When it came to buying a house there was no choice about who I was going to work with. I could trust her to tell me what I wanted to know, the truth, plus she went the extra mile on so many aspects of our house purchase. I would highly recommend Nicole if you want honesty, integrity and making things happen - and some fun along the way.” Tracey
“Nicole is a rock star. Having purchased and sold several houses, Nicole is by far the best agent we have worked with. During our recent relocation from Auckland to Queenstown having no knowledge of the Queenstown market, Nicole guided us through the process 100% with the utmost professionalism and efficiency, meeting all expectations. We couldn’t have asked for a more ‘genuine’ honest and insightful approach providing a high level of comfort as we searched for the right property. Nicole listened to what our requirements were, and she delivered. Without fail, we will certainly be working together again one day.” Jonathan
