About Di Austin
25 years spent working in a sales role in one company is unusual. 25 years spent in a sales role at a consistently exceptional level of performance is so close to being unique that to describe it as being “almost unique” does it no justice! On a local, regional, national and international basis her performance has put her in the very highest echelons of real estate achievers. This is a comment made not only in the the context of Harcourts but in that of the entire industry.
In our industry, success tends to be measured in terms of how much people earn. As crass and simplistic this might be, it is the basis of awards and accolades and while she has been the receipt of an unprecedented number of these, it does not necessarily tell the whole story.
The all important measures that tell the real story behind the true champion in our business are those measures that have meaning to our clients; who have entrusted the sale of their properties to us. How do we measure what we have done for them? If we look at the critical measurement of success from a client’s point of view the list may read something like this; the sale to list ratio, the sale price relative to capital valuation and the time taken to sell.
These are all critical and meaningful indicators of success from the client’s perspective and valid measurements of such. They define quality of performance and not just volume. Di's performance in all of these measurements is at the highest level and that coupled with the volume of her work is what makes her a true professional. She has, for 25 years now achieved outstanding results for her clients coupled with a truly admirable level of performance.
If sheer hard work, enthusiasm, sound judgement, people skills and sales skills are on the sellers list of the qualities they seek in an agent, then they could do no better than to have Di act for them.
Di is based at the Harcourts Wellington City Office and is available for all enquiries.

"Di Austin of Harcourts Team Wellington Ltd has recently sold my house in Ngaio for me. No sale is ever without its problems and difficulties but Di managed to steer both the buyers and myself through the rough patches so we all came out with a result with which everyone was extremely happy. I have known Di for some time now since she first came to appraise my house when I was thinking of putting it on the market some years ago. I was struck then, as I still am not only by her friendly and helpful approach but also by her total professionalism. I was particularly impressed by her large network of services and individuals who would be available to help prepare my home for Open Days and general marketing. I was impressed too by the fact that she was genuinely willing to pitch in and help me herself. Should I, in the future, ever be in the position of wanting to sell property again, Di Austin would be the first person I would think of approaching".
"We used Harcourts to sell an apartment in Wellington in Feb/March 2013. The person responsible for all our dealings with Harcourts was Di Austin. In all she did for us she showed herself to be extremely professional and always greatly efficient. If necessary, Di was with us seven days a week and available for many hours every day. The sale went through very quickly which suggests to us that Di was also most efficient and professional with the buyers and not just the sellers. Di is a charming and friendly person to deal with and we were more than happy to have Di as our exclusive agent. Harcourts did a very good job and all our dealings with the firm were very well handled. With all good wishes to Di and Harcourts".
"I've worked with Di for a number of years and have sold two properties with her as the agent. I have also recommended her to friends who have used her and been completely satisfied with the result. In both selling and buying property through her I have found her to be excellent in all respects. Her knowledge of the market gained over her many years as a Real Estate agent is tremendous; she kept in touch with me every step of the way, and I feel always got the very most from every buyer that she could squeeze! More than that, I trust her integrity 100% and have always been happy being represented by her. I have put her forward to you as an agent based on my total respect for her as an agent".
"Dear Antonia, Just received your letter confirming that my property at 35 Hobson St has now sold, many thanks. May I take this opportunity to commend to your attention as the sales manager of Team Wellington, my real estate consultant Di Austin. Di has worked with me on marketing this property for over 6 months and given me excellent advice and the benefit of her many years of experience in the Wellington property market. Also importantly as I have been resident in Sydney for the last 18 months it’s meant that being ‘’off-shore’’ I’ve had to really put my confidence in Di to manage everything for me, from marketing and advertising to checking on the house and making sure it was always clean and presentable, and I haven't been disappointed. Marketing an empty house is never easy I’d imagine but Di has done it, got an excellent result, and I’m very pleased. Wishing you and your team all the best".
"From the moment Di got on-board to market our apartment for sale, we knew this would be our best chance to be successful. Commitment, professionalism and smart knowledge of the Wellington market: here are a few key qualities that Di showed from the beginning. We always felt listened to and Di left us in control while taking away stress and administrative duties. She was supportive, understanding and above all very enthusiastic and positive. Teaming up with Di is a winning combination and we would recommend her talent and services to anyone willing to sell their property in Wellington".
