Our Agents » Katrina Garside


Thought it would be nice to pass on our feedback regards the recent sale of our home in Balclutha.

Throughout the entire process we found Katrina to be both proactive and positive.  As you will appreciate the "sale process" can be both draining and disheartening at times.  At stages our enthusiasm may have waned slightly but Katrina managed to put a positive spin on things at opportune times.

Katrina followed up potential buyers and relayed their feedback to us which we regarded as kept us in the loop and, at the end of the day, this ultimately resulted in the sale of our home!

Be assured that Katrina's involvement in the real estate market in South Otago will only, I'm sure, be positive for Living Corporation.

Regards and all the best for the future.

Six weeks ago we moved into our new house and wanted to write to you about your agent in Balclutha

Katrina Garside, what a wonderful person, nothing was too much trouble, all our questions were answered promptly and if Katrina didn’t know the answer she soon found it. Both she and her PA Karen went the extra mile (or should that be a kilometer) to sell our house so we could move here. In fact they felt more like friends then estate agents, and should we ever get the urge to move again we wouldn’t hesitate to have Katrina as our agent again. We were very pleasantly surprised by the Kiwiana basket of goodies we received on completion – a lovely touch which were enjoyed.

I’d recommend Katrina to anybody needing to sell their property, so a big “thank you” from us both.

Within a week of advertising, our house in Dunedin was sold for a price far exceeding our expectations. We are indebted to Keryn and Katrina (team Garside) of Living Corporation, Balclutha .  They talked us through the process of presentation, and the intricacies and legalities of the sale procedures, in layman/woman language, ensuring that we totally understood the reasoning behind the methods. We felt secure and confident to place our asset in their hands and although we were initially sceptical of the By Negotiation phrase, it became evident that it was an indicator of the present market price. The entire transaction was stress-free.

 We chose Keryn and Katrina Garside, due to a previous experience in Balclutha, a year or two ago, where much energy had been expended on our behalf.  On the latter occasion, although Dunedin was not their usual trading area, we were justified in believing they would use their drive, professionalism, and extensive knowledge of the housing market, to serve us well.

Thank you both.
