From my clients...













I have had many real estate experiences over my life, and working with Jodene was the most pleasurable experience I have ever had. This lady has it all, incredibly professional and knows her stuff, honest and a very straight up lady who I found 100% reliable with her facts and information. If she didn't know something, she said so, and she had the information to me within an hour or so at most.

At the same time, as being on to it and professional; she also has one of the kindest and most caring natures I have come across in the industry.

Not once did I ever feel pressured by Jodene in anyway. She made me feel special and as though I was her one and only client (even though I wasn't); her response time to calls or txts was phenomenal, as was her promptness with appointments. Jodene is the best real estate agent I have EVER dealt with, if everyone in the industry was like her, buying and selling would be a pleasure instead of the stressful nightmare it can become.

As well as Jodene I would like to give a big high five to the team at Harcourts in Warkworth. Again I couldn't recommend a better team, they really were a team, and all pitched in and did their best to move my property.

The manager, Amy, was amazing with presenting multiple contracts, and supplying flowers and smelly candles. Amazing experience, and a huge hug and deeply felt gratitude to Jodene.

Call her people - she is one in a million.

Sandra Smith

Alan and myself really appreciated how Jodene kept us fully informed in the process of the recent sale of home. She was very professional and nothing was too much bother for her. She was very sensitive to our feelings and treated us with respect. We would certainly rate her with a 5 as an excellent sales person and would like to thank her for all the help she gave us.

Alan & Pat Schedewy

We knew from the beginning we had listed with the right person to sell my mother-in-laws house in Kaipara Flats. Jodene is tenacious, professional and kept us up to date the whole way through.

I'm sure you will continue to have many more successful sales throughout your career. Wishing you all the best.

Conny Petersen

Listing with a star is 100% correct. Jodene has got that professional yet warm and friendly approach in every which way. From the moment we had our first meeting through to the last form of communication to say the house has settled, was with an experience everyone should have if selling or buying. Thank you Jodene for a wonderful result and we would highly recommend to all.

Louise Walsh

From her first visit to us, Jodene impressed us with her knowledge and professionalism. We were kept abreast of all developments with in-depth reporting and with regular more informal contact. Jodene followed up all prospective buyers and succeeded in attracting a big crowd and several bidders to the auction, which resulted in an excellent outcome for us. Jodene's kind and compassionate manner helped us enormously during the marketing campaign. Would not hesitate to recommend her to other seller. Thank you Jodene from the bottom of our hearts.

David & Judy Macready

From the moment we met Jodene we knew she was the one to sell our home. She is warm and very friendly with the edge of hardworking professionalism, she had a positive approach to getting the best possible outcome for us and never gave up working hard to achieve this. I would not hesitate to recommend her as not only does she work hard she was always there for us informing us every step of the way with regular meetings and updates via emails and text. Thank you so much Jodene you made it so easy for us.

Kim Kerby

Thank you Jodene and Kathy! You have crossed all the t’s and dotted all the I’s during our recent purchase of our new home. Always one or the other of you have made yourselves available when we have required tradesmen for measures and quotes, extra viewing etc. over a six week period. Since moving in we have had a few on- going issues which you, Jodene have sorted without hesitation.  This has resulted in potentially stressful situations being sorted like a walk in the park. We shall not hesitate in recommending you to others.

To Whom It May Concern

Jodene Mildon of Harcourt's Tandem Realty Warkworth sold two properties for me. I really liked working with Jodene and found her to be the best agent I have ever dealt with. She is totally focused and efficient in her work and committed to achieving a top result for me as a seller. It was a stressful time for me during both sales however Jodene always was considerate of me as a seller and showed empathy and respect of what I was going through. She kept positive and kept me informed at all times with constant follow up of potential buyers. I found Jodene went over and above the normal duty as an agent – she was always kind and considerate of me and she has continued to help me personally and keep in touch. I have been very pleased with Jodene as an agent and of what she achieved for me with both of my property sales and I would highly recommend her to any potential seller.

Jenny Conn

A big thank-you [Jodene and Avalon] for your help, confidence you conveyed in putting our house on the market. We have enjoyed working with you both. You kept us up to date with progress reports with potential buyers. We chose you because we were already aware of the good results you have had in this area. We recommend you to any seller for professional services. 

James Lupton

I recently listed my home with Avalon Sanders & Jodene Mildon from Harcourts Warkworth. They exceeded my expectations and had it sold within weeks. What a fantastic duo! They were always there and never let me down. I don't think I have ever felt so relaxed about selling my home, thank you both for helping me move on to my dream. I couldn't have done it without you both.

Debbie Ferguson

A big thank-you to Jodene Mildon for your communication and always giving regular updates, also your energy and enthusiasm. You understood our requirements for selling and worked with us to achieve a great result.

Jo Benson

A massive thank you to Jodene Mildon for helping my parents into their new home in Warkworth. Jodene, you were fantastic to deal with - professional, always kept us informed and made the whole process seamless for us. I would recommend Jodene to anyone wanting to sell or buy in Warkworth, she's an absolute star.

Kelly Skelton

Selling my house was an emotional roller coaster and a daunting prospect for me, but Avalon Sanders and Jodene Mildon stepped up and took on the entire process on my behalf, keeping me informed every step of the way, and providing a realistic perspective while maintaining a positive outlook. Their energy and confidence kept me buoyant and the process became simple. Words cannot express how grateful I am to you both, and to Harcourts, I absolutely recommend these ladies, especially if, like me, you don't know where to start, or don't have the time to be as involved as you would like. Avalon, Jodene, you are stars!

Michele Monteith

We have just purchased with the lovely Jodene and Avalon by our sides every step of the way. They worked hard to get the best price for the vendor while also helping us to secure our first home. A fabulous duo who made this all such a breeze. Incredibly diligent, attentive and invested. Nothing was a problem from information requested right through to helping keep our toddler entertained at our meetings and subsequent auction. I can't thank these ladies enough. We are absolutely thrilled. Thank you so so much ladies

Sarah Goldsmith

"Jodene I would like to thank you for your help in selling my house at Matakana. I was impressed by the professionalism and dedication that you showed throughout the whole process. I also really liked how you kept me informed every step of the way. You worked extremely hard throughout the sale process and most importantly you knew how to close the deal which contributed to a successful outcome for me. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anyone else who wishes to sell their house. Kind Regards"

Lynne McNeil

“Jodene did everything I asked and certainly went the extra mile for me. Her communication was superb. Also I must mention Rebecca (Jodene’s P.A) who also was excellent in organising and over seeing things we needed done around the house prior to the Auction. Thank you Jodene for taking the stress away selling the house. Job Well Done.” 

Jennifer Murray

Tony & Teresa Barry 

“Jodene was always punctual, kept us well informed and handled herself in a professional manner at all times. She was respectful of our wishes at the outset of signing a contract with Harcourts right through to the final details and sale of our property. If we were to find ourselves wanting to sell a property in the future we would seek to use Jodene again.” 

Larry & Paula Theron

“I found Jodene informative at the initial meeting and allowed us time to weigh up our options before placing our home on the market. She has the ability to establish a good rapport with clients and is attentive to their needs. Her follow up was always friendly but professional. She was always punctual and available at the agreed time. A timetable of events from start to finish was adhered to and as a seller we were kept informed through the whole process.” 

Desmond Duthie 

“I found Jodene a very easy person to work with. She was always on time and extremely efficient. Jodene has a pleasant manner and takes time to listen to her client. Her follow up interest in the settling in of my new home was heart warming. At my age I found the whole moving process stressful and Jodene did her very best to make things as easy as possibly for me.” 

Lorraine Biddlecombe 

“Jodene was faultlessly professional throughout the entire sale process. She is quite thorough and confident of her abilities and in the knowledge that she has amassed. I feel extremely confident in recommending her and her team to achieve the best outcome for any prospective seller.” 

Karin Coffey 

"Jodene was very thorough in her communication with us, she talked us through and helped us with the auction process. Quick and easy email & phone communication. She is very experienced and knowledgeable, thank you for the card & gift on settlement.” 

Murray Saunders 

“The fact that she “hung in there” for more than 6 years to make this sale, that is how long it took for us to finally put our property on the market. So yes – we did List With A Star and we are happy vendors.” 

Jacques & Jenny Tait

“We found Jodene to be very professional, always on time & kept us well informed throughout the sale of our home. Jodene always followed through on tasks that had to be done in a very efficient manner, even after the sale of our home Jodene continues to make sure everything is running smoothly. Jodene always had a very positive attitude & kept our spirits us when stress levels were high. We would recommend Jodene to anyone selling their home including friends & family. It would be hard to get a better agent than Jodene.” 

David & Linda Nevin 

“Right from our first meeting with Jodene we felt very confident with her selling our house. She was extremely patient, and we never felt like we were doing something we didn’t want to do. She had some great ideas and processes that we feel really enabled our house selling in such a short time. Jodene was always very obliging, extremely professional, and always happy to go the extra mile. We wouldn’t hesitate to use her again on our next house sale” 

Jonathon & Tascha Cooper 

“Working with Jodene when selling our house really was a pleasure. I know that I can be super fussy and have high expectations, however, Jodene exceeded every expectation. We found her to be professional, thorough, friendly and client focused throughout the process. We had every confidence that she knew her market and would achieve a great result for us. Jodene marketed the property extremely well and the professional shots of the home really did make it come alive. I found her reports and regular contact useful, concise and re-assuring. When next selling a home, I will without hesitation return to Jodene, she is exceptional and the best consultant that I have worked with in her field.” 

Matt and Sharn Rayner 

“On the sale of my investment property I found Jodene to be enthusiastic (but not pushy), honest, imbued with a sense of responsibility, very good interpersonal skills, a good communicator, initiative, pleasant and polite.” Michael Davis “Jodene was one of the best agents I have dealt with. She gave exemplary service. Nothing was too much trouble and I would say she gave 150%. I have been so impressed with her service that I have already handed her card to four of my friends. She is a lovely, outgoing person who goes the extra mile.” 

Gaylene Bonniface 

“Jodene was wonderful to deal with. She communicates well, is enthusiastic and has initiative. She is also reliable and punctual. She is prepared to go the extra mile! We would deal with her again and would also recommend her services to others.” 

Adrian & Jenny Osborne

“Jodene was friendly; always kept us honestly informed and was responsive to questions and queries. It was reassuring to know that Christine Fowler was in the background overseeing and for guidance. Harcourts service was sure honest, friendly, informative and timely.”

 Ian & Kerry Marshall

“We found Jodene to be very polite, clear and concise in all communication. Very knowledgeable and informative when answering queries. She sought to really understand our needs. Punctual and diligent with all calls and appointments. Her manner was positive and businesslike but not pushy or insistent. Very easy to work effectively with. A very competent agent! She dressed immaculately at all times and was very professional. The administration staff in the office were very professional, courteous, helpful and efficient.” 

Adelle & Peter Mouat 

“We found that Jodene had a very positive outlook and a bright, cheerful personality. It was very easy to have a good rapport with her and we felt relaxed knowing she was working for us. We feel Jodene put a lot of thought and consideration into our situation and she worked very hard which received a quick result. The Howick office kept us informed and updated regularly regarding the sale.” 

Annette N Kingston 

“Jodene always kept in contact with what was happening and updated us as to who had viewed our home. She was punctual for the open homes and dressed beautifully. Always pleasant and explained anything we were unsure of.” 

Dennis & Dawn Wilson 

“Jodene was efficient, straight forward, friendly and professional. She demonstrated good negotiating skills and was organised. Jodene sold our three rentals very fast and for the money we were looking for. I definitely recommend her as an agent.” 

Nadine Simsar 

“Jodene was always positive, friendly and approachable. She never gave the impression that this was ‘just another sale’. Jodene kept all appointments, was always on time and was professional on all occasions. Jodene always answered our questions to the best of her knowledge and sought answers for queries she was unsure of. I cannot fault Jodene’s service.” 

Rachel Doolin

“We chose Jodene as our real estate agent after we were so impressed with her service at one of her open homes. Her manner is pleasant and friendly without seeming overly familiar. We have a reasonable amount of experience in the market and we very seldom meet agents who ask the right questions for closing a sale. During the sale process we felt she read us as vendors and the market well, with her approach matching our own. Jodene’s follow up with us and with the buyers was efficient without being too close, making everyone involved comfortable with her service. We would happily recommend Jodene to any prospective seller, either in writing or verbally if they have any further questions.” 

Simon & Charlotte Lockhart 

“Jodene was always bright and bubbly and very easy to talk to. We feel people that are so personable will always do well. She was very confident in her skills but not in a push way which we found refreshing. The effort and application to selling our home were second to none.” 

Scott & Sasha Nowell 

“Although Jodene was not our agent for the sale of our home in St Heliers, she was incredibly helpful on the purchase of our new home at 07 Marina Heights which made everything less stressful. Should we ever consider moving in the long term and Jodene is still pursuing this path of professionalism, we would not hesitate to use her services. We would recommend her to anyone thinking of buying or selling in this area. Good luck Jodene you were an absolute pleasure to deal with.” 

Andy & Sandra Wray 

”On the sale of my mothers home I found Jodene to be prompt and courteous at all times. She was very pleasant to deal with.” 

Ron Winkle 

“We found Jodene to be upfront, honest, very professional and easy to deal with. She made the experience of buying our first home enjoyable. She was enthusiastic about being part of such a major decision and was thrilled for us when we sealed the deal! Overall, we were very impressed with the service we received, compared to other agents in the area. Employ more people like Jodene!” 

Bradley and Kim Pillay 

“She was fantastic. Nothing was too much bother. She is a great person and a credit to the real estate industry.” 

Patty O’Neill 

“We thank Jodene for all the time and personal interest she took in helping us sell our house. Her sympathy and compassion was very much appreciated and we could not have found a more proactive agent to help us give up a house we have enjoyed so much. Her professionalism and attention to detail were also greatly appreciated. We would have no hesitation in recommending Jodene to any of our family and friends wishing to sell their homes.” 

Barry & Shirley Spring 

“Jodene discussed with us and sorted out what we wanted. She wasn’t fazed when our ideas changed. Jodene persevered with us and our requirements and was friendly and honest and worked hard for us. We will continue to recommend Jodene’s professional services to our family and friends.” 

George & Glenise Arthur 

“When we decided to sell our property at Four Trees, there was no hesitation as to who we would ask—Jodene, our first choice. Jodene was totally professional, also caring and encouraging. She kept us up to date with progress and was always very complimentary about how our home was presented. She offered excellent guidance and advice. The price she obtained for us was most pleasing. In the future Jodene will still remain “our star.”

Bill Atherfold & Bridget Nash 

“Jodene has always displayed a high degree of integrity and reliability and ambition. She is definitely a leader rather than a follower. In addition to her excellent real estate accomplishments, she has proven her ability by organizing a successful marketing plan that lead to the sale of our first home which we also purchased through her initially within days of it being listed. Jodene is prepared to go the extra mile to exceed expectations, and I am happy to give her my whole hearted endorsement.” 

Rebecca Banks 

“As soon as Jodene arrived at our property she was enthusiastic about selling our home. It was without hesitation, that we singed with her that evening to market our house. We had previously had another agent from a different company come through but Jodene out shone her 100% in personality and professionalism. I have already recommended Jodene to family and friends. I wish her all the best for the future, she has amazing work ethics and will always be our preferred real estate agent—she really is a “star””
