What Oana's Clients Say...

Oana was amazing. She was incredibly professional. Took the time to listen to and understand our needs, and she worked tirelessly to help us find the right property in the right location for us. Thank you, Oana you made our life a lot easier.
~Vicki and Dave

Selling was made super easy for us, by the wonderful Oana! Absolutely recommended!! as Oana has got vast market knowledge and the way she explained and guided us through the sale process was made very easy for us by Oana’s hard work.
~Bunny Singh

The ultimate professional. We had been hunting the Papamoa market for two years. What a difference it made to eventually discover Oana Simmons. An agent who backed up her words with actions and proactively followed through. She made us familiar and comfortable with the auction environment. She supported us no matter where the listing originated. Ultimately being there for us when we negotiated successfully for our ‘now’ property in Papamoa. We were delighted! If you are looking for an agent who is helpful, encouraging, positive, proactive and just plain hardworking, look no further than Oana Simmons - you won’t be disappointed!
~Selwyn and Carol

The best thing that Oana did was to come knocking on our door otherwise the sale would not have happened. But she was very very hard-working and even if the property had not sold we were very happy with her service.
~Katika and Branko

Oana was always patient, genuine and kind to my elderly mother.
~Jan Bates

Professional, dedicated and able to get a read for what a customer needs. She really made the experience the 5-star rating I have given.
~Matthew & Sarah Ahern

A pleasurable experience working with Oana, one who never gave up the search, and provided as many opportunities as she could in trying to meet our requirements. Would recommend Oana to anyone looking to buy/sell in the Papamoa, Mt Maunganui area.
~Kevin And Sue

Oana’s service is outstanding and just how you want your agent to be. My wife and I met Oana at a Sat open home where we chatted and she listened to us describe what we were looking for. She suggested that she meet us the next day and came up with a shortlist of five homes that she had organised for us to look through. The homes were aligned with what we were looking for. To cut a long story short, we ended up buying one of the two that we shortlisted, with the deciding factor for us being the location. Oana listened to us, was able to filter what we wanted and matched us to a number of great options. I highly recommend without a doubt, especially if you are looking for that one-on-one level of service.

Outstanding professional. We were new to the area and Oana made the whole buying exercise a much easier experience than we had anticipated. She educated us on what the local market had to offer. Her communication at every step was exceptional and her knowledge of the area, facilities, and options available guided us to make a decision which we are extremely happy with. We highly recommend Oana as an outstanding sales professional.
~John & Diane

Easy, honest, fantastic. Oana was such a delight and we felt so lucky to have her looking out for us. Oana was professional at all times whilst also being super friendly and super Honest. Her knowledge was vast and appreciated. She made the whole process from beginning to end less stressful and also went above and beyond her duty. I could not recommend Oana enough whether you are selling or buying Oana will absolutely have your best interests at heart.
~David And Trudi

Helping the buyers in a seller's market. Oana was amazing in her support of Gary and I when we were house hunting in a hot seller's market. She worked tirelessly to ensure we could achieve a successful purchase. This included making sure we were fully prepared to go to auction when the house of our dreams finally came to our attention. So the whole process was seamless and as stress-free as possible. We would recommend Oana to anyone buying or selling a property.
~Mary Higham

Great service from a professional, caring and dedicated lady. Oana is passionate about her job and takes care to really listen to her clients, offering good advice and plenty of support. I found she has an excellent knowledge of the market and is very professional, whilst still being down to earth and easy to talk to. She is known for going that extra mile! I would recommend Oana to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.

We live on the South Island and Oana Sold our property remotely for us and it was seamless. Constantly communicating -very capable and organised. Knew the Market and the auction process in and out.
~Jason And Fiona

Oana has been our real estate agent for a number of years. During this time we have found her to be a hard-working, honest and reliable agent. The purchase of 80A The Boulevard was dependent on her being able to work with us and the seller in a very professional manner. The white-hot market required someone who had experience and a good working knowledge of this environment. She was able to guide us with sound advice regarding price, location and rental prospects for this particular property. At all times she kept us informed of property listings and comparative sales in that area. She was able to secure this property prior to the auction which was both beneficial to ourselves and the vendor. We would like to thank her for the time and effort she put into securing this property for us.
~Del And Ian

Positive buying experience. I came into contact with Oana when I viewed a property in Papamoa on Trade Me that interested me. Oana was the listing agent. As a very recently retired Wellingtonian, I have spent considerable time over the past few years on my journey to find my ideal retirement home in this wonderful part of New Zealand. From my first telephone call to Oana, through to signing the Auction documents on the property (yes I successfully bid on this property), I was impressed by Oana's professionalism, attention to detail and most of all, her exceptionally prompt response to my enquiries along the way. Although Oana was the listing agent, she always made me feel that my needs as a buyer were important and supported me through my first Auction experience. I have interacted with a number of real estate agents in recent times and Oana is definitely a cut above the rest. I absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to sell or purchase a property in the Tauranga area.

Found Oana to be an excellent agent and would recommend her highly to future clients.
~Claudette Burns

We first met Oana when we visited an open home that she was marketing. Our experience with Oana has been nothing but positive and we would highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in buying or selling their property. Oana is a totally committed, hard-working agent with excellent communication skills. She went above and beyond our expectations to make sure we were happy with our buying decisions. Nothing was ever too much effort for Oana and we felt assured by her knowledge and willingness to help us in any way that she was able. We believe any vendor or purchaser who has Oana as their real estate agent would be in very competent hands and we would, without hesitation, definitely acquire her services again for any future real estate dealings. Thank you so much Oana for your outstanding service.
~Sue Henderson

Very professional and good communication.

Fantastic to deal with Oana! Oana advised us correctly in all aspects of the purchase and stood by our side from beginning to end! Our needs and requirements were put before her own, and that is very rare. Would definitely involve Oana if we ever look at buying or selling in the future!
~Ken And Karen

10/10 service Oana was very easy to deal with, had good communication, was honest and helpful. Best agent we have met in the 6 months of house hunting!
~Amber Lou Wilson

My two daughters and I have spent the last month looking in the Papamoa area for an investment property. We met Oana at an open home we attended, and we explained to her just what we were looking for from that moment we have worked exclusively with her. We just want you and the Harcourts company to know how impressed we have been not only with her professionalism but the fact nothing has been too much trouble for her, she has kept in touch with all three of us informing us on houses which could meet our needs but not wasting our time with something which would not be suitable she has made what could have been a stressful time so much easier. I have bought and sold quite a few properties over the years never have I worked with such a great agent before. Unfortunately, we have bought a place thru another company as we went to an open home and signed in before we met Oana which made us very sad after working so well together. We just wanted to acknowledge all the time and effort she spent with us and if my circumstances ever change I would have no hesitation in coming to Harcourts and asking for Oana to help me.
~Gill Poulton

Oana is professional, dedicated and has an excellent knowledge of the real estate market. She is passionate about her job, taking care to listen to her clients, offering constructive advice and more often than not, go that extra mile. Her expertise and support made selling my property a breeze. Highly recommended !!

Having recently moved to Papamoa, I found Oana to be an exceptional real estate agent. She quickly engaged with me and listened to what I was looking for in a home. She is an excellent communicator, can read people well and is passionate about selling homes. Moreover, Oana goes the extra mile. It took a while for another agent to sell my previous home in Auckland but Oana stood by me, ringing me regularly, keeping me updated about things in Papamoa and ensuring I was okay. She even managed to find a fridge for my new house and supervised relocating it for me while I was so far away. Now I am in my dream home and so grateful to Oana for her support. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
~Michelle W

Dear Oana We would like to take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your work, thought and perseverance in finding us a home in Papamoa. We cannot think of another estate agent who firstly, listened exactly to what we wanted, ferreted out option after option, week after week as our previous home took far longer to sell than anticipated, and then stuck with the job until it was done! We cannot recommend your services highly enough. You never once flinched or let us or even you, get disheartened when ideal properties got sold ahead of us on a phone call from overseas, or when we turned down others for some reason or personal preference of our own. Nothing was ever too much trouble, and we appreciated it so much. I am sure we will see you around the traps in Papamoa, and look forward to getting to know you and those close to you better in the near future. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Kindest regards and best wishes.
~Giles and Julie Taylor

Gail and I would like to highly recommend Oana as a Real Estate agent, to anyone wanting to sell their residential property. From our first meeting, Oana struck us with her friendliness, confidence and market knowledge. As our relationship developed, we also found her to be very patient, committed, and passionate about her job. Above all, Oana is a very professional agent. We would like to thank her for making the auction process a great experience and achieving an excellent result for us. We hope that we can possibly make use of her services again sometime in the future.
~Alan & Gail

My wife and I highly recommend the excellent services of Oana Simmons to any prospective buyers or sellers of real estate in the Papamoa, Mount/Tauranga area. Oana's expertise, perseverance and professionalism really paid off for us after visiting many homes in the Papamoa area. With Oana and her cheery personality, nothing was ever too much trouble and so we ended up delighted with our beautiful new home.
~Murray and Mizuho Hancox

Several weeks ago we purchased a property in Papamoa Beach, Tauranga. The process leading up to this purchase had been ongoing for over 10 months with many open homes, attendance at auctions and of course the disruptions of COVID-19. Throughout our endeavours to find a new home we were supported greatly by Oana Simmons from Harcourts. To Oana’s credit, the property we eventually bought was not what we originally planned as our dream home, however, having taken the time to get to know us and research the options available on the market she was able to support our “hunt” based on our needs and wants. In addition to the tireless long-term support and guidance she provided, the professional advice regarding the actual purchase was excellent. Attention to detail and ensuring at all times that our best interests were accounted for, we can not speak highly enough of Oana and her integrity. We would highly recommend Oana Simmons if you are looking to either sell or purchase a property.
~Kirsten & Patrick Hellier

What a wonderful person to sell your home. Oana goes the extra mile to ensure that everything is done with excellence and integrity. She has a friendly and empathetic disposition that endears her to both buyers and sellers. Oana is more than her job. She is a genuinely caring person. One of life’s treasures. We are so grateful to have found her. Highly recommend Oana to anyone looking for a successful and well-managed sale. With gratitude,.
~Sue and John, Papamoa

"We have been approached by Oana Simmons after we have failed to make a sale of our property twice. We have been initially reluctant but with professionalism and a can-do attitude, Oana managed to make a sale 3 weeks after the property was listed. She was also of great help in assisting us with the purchase of a new property spending a great amount of energy and time in order to ensure that everything goes smooth. She was showing a great level of professionalism at every step.
~Stefan & Luminita, Cockle Bay

We would like to thank Oana for the outstanding and professional service she provided us to buy our first home. She was easy to get along with, accommodated our requests and answered our questions. We would recommend Oana to any future buyer or seller without a doubt.
~Ali & Fatimah, Flat Bush

Dear Oana, Thank you for all your effort and perseverance i selling our home. We appreciated your promptness and professionalism and the passion that you have for your job. We are very pleased and happy that we meet you and we collaborate successfully.
~Florincescu Stefan si Adriana, Onehunga

As a first home buyer, I found Oana to be very patient, accommodating and helpful. She was very knowledgeable and always made sure I was informed about all of the processes and about what would be best for me personally. There were many cases where she made the daunting experience as simple, understandable and pleasant as possible. Her professionalism and guidance helped me right through the viewing to the final negotiations. I appreciate her recommendations and always felt like I was in good hands. I would recommend Oana’s services to anyone and everyone.
~McInees Taljaard, Mount Eden

Paulette and I would like to thank Oana for her real estate market expertise throughout the purchase of our new home with her. Her response to any of the questions we had was above and beyond and she would respond as quickly as possible with the answer. We cannot thank Oana enough for the great experience we had with this lovely lady that just makes things happen no matter what time of day you ring her. We would not hesitate to recommend her to any future seller or buyer.
~Warren and Paulette
