A father of three, Neil enjoys relaxing with his family and supporting their sport and recreational activities. Neil brings an intimate, consultative approach and the passion to achieve the best possible result for those who put their trust in him to buy or sell.
Neil has achieved A.R.E.I.N.Z. membership through Massey University. We're thrilled this enthusiastic team player has added to the depth of experience in our Mt. Eden office.
Neil has had many years experience in sales and customer service and has gained a wide range of knowledge and experience over the past 15 years, having focused on selling residential beachfront, waterfront and coastal properties on the east coast of the Coromandel Peninsula.
Neil relocated his family to Auckland in 2008, returning to his birth place in Mt. Eden/Epsom and has enjoyed successfully listing and selling property in around this area and Central Auckland since his return.

We were introduced to Neil on the recommendation of friends who had bought and sold a house through him. What impressed us when we met Neil was his natural and personal style and his genuine interest to understand our needs. Neil worked tirelessly on our behalf and kept us informed throughout the process. He was attentive to our needs and took pride in his work. We have no hesitation in recommending Neil whether you are looking to buy or sell a property. He acted honestly, professionally and with a high level of integrity in all of the dealings we had with him. At all stages through the sale of our property we felt at ease and reassured that he was working in our best interests. We were very pleased with the outcome of the sale process.

Neil and Janet made selling my Kingsland apartment an effortless and rewarding experience. With the resources of Unlimited Potential behind them, they tailored a marketing package and provided insightful advice on maximising the property’s appeal to buyers. Their attention to detail was superb, building excitement throughout a three-week marketing campaign that saw dozens of viewers visiting the apartment. At the auction we had several buyers with the willingness and resources to place a bid.
The success of their approach is underscored by the fact that my apartment was only one amongst half a dozen on sale in the same complex. Buyers had plenty of choice - but Neil and Janet worked as a team to secure the sale at a record price.

We used Roberta and Neil from UP for the sale of our renovated bungalow in Sandringham recently. We have nothing but good things to say about them. We chose them as we wanted to create a friendly and warm vibe inside the house during open homes and felt that they were people who would be able to do this. We had to sell while we were overseas and liaising with them was a dream. They were organised, reliable, friendly, honest and supportive, and this was the feedback from people who came through the house too. They kept us up to date with recent house sales in the area and with all feedback that viewers gave. We felt they worked hard for us and their involvement certainly increased the price of our house, along with making the whole process quite enjoyable! Thanks Roberta and Neil, and Unlimited Potential!”

Neil and the UP team did a fantastic job of marketing and selling our home. Neil was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is very personable with a depth of experience and knowledge we felt we could trust. The marketing campaign and auction was extremely well organized and Neil kept us informed each step of the way. Neil went the extra mile both with us as the vendors and when engaging with the prospective buyers. We would highly recommend Neil.

Neil Bailey is the real deal when it comes to real estate agents. Neil recently sold my house in Mt Eden and I was so impressed with his obvious commitment to the task - I can't speak highly enough of him.
Whether it was following up with prospective purchasers or doing the lawn mowing Neil ensured the sale process was executed as successfully as it possibly could. '

Ana and I just want to thank you all for the wonderful contribution that you made in assisting us sell our family home of 18 years. It was a pleasure working with you all, it provided us with a wonderful sense of confidence that we had a group of people and a business who were genuinely interested in looking after our interests and were working in a collective and collegial way to achieve that outcome.
I particularly want to acknowledge the incredible job that Neil did during the course of the selling process. The reason we chose Neil over other real estate agents was because he came highly recommended by a number of people who we know well. They said that he was professional, trusting, personable, very experienced and very hard-working. From our dealings with Neil we can say that he possesses those qualities in abundance .
At the time of selecting an agent, we concluded that the most important quality that we were looking for was honesty and integrity directed at working in our interests. Neil throughout this process did exactly that. We also realised that the most important phase of any transaction is the negotiation stage. We knew that with Neil’s experience and great ability to communicate difficult messages, to all involved in the process, that our interests would be well served, and they were.
We really enjoyed working with you and Neil and will recommend you to others. Indeed we already have. In fact I communicated with Neil yesterday in relation to selling some property that we own in South Auckland, which is probably the best testimonial of the exemplary service that you have all provided. Kind regards Richard and Ana.

We were recommended to you by a close friend and I can fully see why he advised us to come to you. From the beginning you were just fantastic. We had a sensitive situation and needed someone we could trust and also know we could get the best outcome for our home. From the get go you were extremely professional, calm, reliable, honest and understanding of the market and our tricky scenario. Without giving us false hope we felt very safe in your capable hands and knowledge of the market. On the day of the auction we met the UP team and we felt very comfortable and in safe professional hands. The auctioneer did a superb job and when we felt bidding had slowed down he easily managed to get it going again and we had an outstanding result that we couldn't have hoped better for.
I would like to truly thank you and your amazing team for the work you did, it has been a blessing and was done so professionally.

We have recently sold our family home in Epsom and are very pleased we made the decision to use the services of Neil Bailey and his team at Unlimited Potential, Mt Eden.
Neil achieved a sale for us in the shortest time imaginable and at a price we were very happy with. However, more importantly, Neil and the team made the whole process straight forward and painless. Neil was able to maintain a high level of professionalism without losing his personal touch. He has also maintained contact with us since the sale and has been very helpful in our search for a replacement home.
We have no hesitation in recommending Neil to anyone who needs a personable, professional and very effective agent.

We are grateful to Neil for his assistance selling our family home. His friendly and professional manner was low key and considerate and we enjoyed working with him. His management of the sale process came with as little intrusion as possible. He set targets and met them, keeping us informed of progress at all times. We were very pleased with the way the property was presented and the final outcome. We have no hesitation in recommending Neil to anyone looking for a "top class" agent.
Honor and Luke
Thank you so much for your assistance and support during our house hunt. We always appreciated your advice, clear skills and the way in which you were generous with your knowledge and time. As first home buyers it meant a lot to us. We wish you all the best and hope to see you again.

Shipherds Ave, Epsom
Your very professional and well informed approach to the sale of our family home was a breath of fresh air - the opposite of a mass marketing "one size fits all" style. The calm and careful manner with which you approached our sale was exactly what we needed. You listened to us and communicated with us thoroughly along the way. You really understood our position and what we wanted, and delivered a quality result in a timely fashion. We would recommend you to anyone wanting a personal experience when selling their home
Wayne and Clare
The sale of our house has been a positive experience with Neil Bailey as our agent. His knowledge of the area and having several potential buyers, resulted in our house being sold within 36 hours. Throughout the entire sale process, we found Neil to be perceptive and effective, whilst always being incredibly professional. Our highest reference is that we would happily engage Neil to sell our house in the future if required.

My wife and I would like to thank you for going the extra mile and effectively communicating and getting us 82 Grange Road. It is with your support that we managed to buy this place all within a very short well managed timeframe. We felt that you showed genuineness at all times through the process and am happy to recommend future buyers and sellers to deal with you.

We write to personally thank UP Realty and particularly Neil Bailey for his excellent and hard work in selling our house in Parnell.
We met Neil when he sold us our new home in Mt Eden and his approach, style and manner encouraged us to engage him in selling our Parnell home. Neil always has a warm, calm and helpful attitude which makes you feel at ease in viewing property. We wanted these attributes to be present in selling our former home in Parnell.
In recognising that he normally sells in Mt Eden/Epsom, Neil quickly offered (off his own back) to share the listing with Richard Hart from the Remuera office to ensure we had the advantage of local knowledge. Richard quickly proved to be a great introduction, with Richard offering excellent local nous and perspective. Richard and Neil communicated well with us and always kept us up to speed with the feedback and buyers response.
We trust Neil and knew he has our best intentions in mind, notwithstanding the sales role he has at UP Realty.
We would also like to note that Neil also went the extra mile for us when purchasing our property in Mt Eden and drove all the way out to Leigh on a Friday evening so we could sign the documentation. We wish Neil all the best in the future and we are sure he will continue to do well in his role and would recommend him without hesitation to sell the homes of our family, friends and neighbours.
We were also very impressed on auction day with how we were treated by the owner of UP Realty (Grant) during this often difficult and stressful time for vendors. Grant was calm, attentive and not pushy in his approach and put us at ease. Clearly this style permeates through the company providing a professional, yet personal touch. We also thought that the UP Auctioneer was great to deal with on the day and clearly skilful and confident in the auction process.
Overall, UP Realty and Neil Bailey were top notch.

A property which my husband and I liked the look of came on the market in October 2012. Out of curiosity we took a look through, and immediately knew we wanted to buy it. At an Open Home for a different property we met Neil Bailey and got talking. We explained our need to sell quickly. He gave an appraisal of our existing property that day, and was hired on the basis that should our purchase be unsuccessful the sale campaign would collapse. Two days later, before our property was officially on the market, Neil and a UP colleague each presented an offer. We explained we were not considering offers ahead of purchasing, however it was encouraging to know there was strong interest. The next day my husband attended the auction with finance pre-arranged and high hopes. He was the under-bidder, with the property we wanted going for a massive 70% above CV. The difference between the agents who marketed that property, and Neil, could not have been more marked. As the under-bidder my husband had demonstrated a willingness to part with serious money, yet only received one follow up phone call from the agents. Neil on the other hand continued to contact me, sometimes on a daily basis, to try to interest us in other properties. We ended up buying at auction in early December with a side agreement for a long settlement date. Although we did not buy through UP we knew Neil was the man to sell our property. We already knew he was personable, good to work with, and tireless as a deal-maker. UP looked after us well through the sale process. They secured us a front cover of Property Press, and the services of auctioneer Mark Sumich. After a three week campaign, our humble dwelling sold for 36% above CV. We highly recommend UP, and Neil in particular, to anyone looking to sell their property.
Thank you for securing the sale of our house in a very short time frame. I was particularly impressed with how you kept us regularly informed and with your professional, yet friendly manner. Your commitment towards making the process as stress free as possible and your genuine desire to achieve a good result for us was much appreciated. I have no hesitation in recommending Neil to anyone who is looking for an agent who has an amazing work ethic, is a pleasure to deal with, and who goes the extra mile to achieve a succesful outcome.

After the bitter disappointment of not selling at Auction with another Real Estate Company we met Neil Bailey and were hugely impressed with his and Unlimited Potential's professionalism. The personal touch that Neil brought as well as his persistence and passion to close the sale was the difference, which we had not previously experienced. His focus delivered the best result for us. We can sum the Sale up in this manner - Neil sold our property in 5 days: Amazing!!!

"We recently sold our home through Neil Bailey from Unlimited Potential Mt Eden. Selling a home can be very stressful, as the seller, a high level of communication throughout the sales process was expected. Neil more then met our expectations by continually updating us on progress and briefing us on feedback from those who attended our open homes. Neil’s commitment to the sale of our house left us satisfied that our needs were respected and that the best outcome was achieved. We are more than happy to recommend Neil if you are thinking of selling you home."

"Thank you both very much for the work you put into selling our house and getting a great result for us on auction day. My husband and I have been on the buying side of a sale several times, but this is the first time we have sold a property so it was important we understood and were comfortable with all parts of the process. We were both very happy with the time you took to ensure we were kept informed throughout the marketing campaign, and also with the added extras you were able to arrange for us. With two small children it was hard work keeping the house looking in great shape for open homes, and so we really appreciated the notice you gave when you wanted to arrange viewings outside of the these set times. We would be happy to recommend you both to anyone else considering selling their home."

We enjoyed working with you throughout and thought you did great job on the day to pull the buyers up to a level where we were comfortable. It was a good hike up from the auction. In the end we thought it was pretty solid money for this house.

"We have not only enjoyed dealing with Janet and Neil, but have been very impressed with the professional and considerate approach throughout the campaign. They always made time to make our lives easier and keep us in the loop as the process progressed. Having 2 young children always creates a few challenges with open homes etc but they were very aware of this and gave us plenty of advance warning. We were delighted with the end result and always felt they were working with our best interest at heart. Thanks, Dave"
"Thanks Neil and Janet for the work you did on selling my house. I particularly liked the fact that there was 2 of you working on the sale. It gave the sale twice the energy, twice the ideas and options than just 1 person would give. Thanks again "

"We just want to thank you again for doing a great job with sale of our home, we thought the service we received was very professional from the presale marketing right up to the auction and post auction dealings. After our property didn’t sell at the auction we felt flat and thought we wouldn’t sell but that’s when you guys went to work and achieved a great post auction result for us. "

Eric and I are pleased and very appreciative of the excellent services you provided to us as Real Estate agents of "Unlimited Potential", in the sale of our Epsom home.
We have been very impressed with many aspects of your services. First the quality of professionalism you showed in every contact, the warmth, personal and psychological skills you brought to bear in dealing with us and in our observations of every aspect of decision making about our home. Second, you stood out as people who were mature, understanding and with much human experience, training and knowledge of the area and its assets. You had high levels of relationship skills, and careful attention to detailed work and reliability. Third you had a clear and patient understanding of us and our selling needs, an excellent understanding and execution of the many parts of the complex process and an ability to cope with the many and varied changes in the marketing scene, potential buyers, and timelines, as we proceeded.
Meetings and reports were thorough and regular and reports were timely, concise and useful in planning. You also coped very well with our uncertainties and the emotional feelings that go with selling a house after thirty years and always ensured your responsibilities were clear and that we were in charge of the process while no hesitation to give us timely and clear views from your perspectives.
We thought some of the photographs were outstanding, the photographer was excellent. We also thought that your advertising 'For Sale' board was particularly arresting and clear - it stands out from all other Real estate signs we have seen in clarity and presentation - the particular warm red colour draws attention, the lay-out was clear and eye catching, the times of Open Homes can be read from the other side of the road and the photos made many people; and cars stop to look.
We had very good advice from you on presentation (helpful and non critical of our home which we found other estate agents were not) and what to do to help the process without any pressure or judgment. Interaction from you seemed particularly non-judgmental and non-pushy - on the contrary very diplomatic and tactful, protecting our privacy and property while being very pleasant and helpful and certainly contributing to the end result.
There is much more we could say but the result speaks for itself. We know that you worked as hard as you could over a long period and a changing process on our part, to assist us in a very quick and positive sale that was well above Government Valuation and our initial expectations, and pitched at a particularly favourable time in the market that could not have been predicted without your experience and knowledge of many current market facts.
Thank you very much for the quality of your work and the very positive experience we have had both professionally and personally in working with and knowing you.
We are very happy to recommend "Unlimited Potential" to any sellers, and particularly to recommend you for a thoroughly professional job that always went the second mile. You certainly mirrored the values of your Company and made the sale of our house a pleasure rather than a stress."
Thanks for your help on this. I appreciate it a great deal. You are one of the few people that go above and beyond the service levels people expected, which is why you have such an exciting future in real estate. All the best.
Wendy & Grant
You would have to be the nicest real estate agents in Auckland to deal with, that we have come across, always so pleasant, consistently helpful, honest & genuinely nice.
Thank you! I'm so glad you encouraged me to come and see it when I called up because I was wavering - it was you saying how great it was that made me come - and you were right! It has been great working with you.
Joanne & Terry
When we were faced with the immediate problem of selling our house quickly in order to proceed with the purchase of our dream house in another region, we contacted Neil who swiftly responded. He promptly presented us with a plan to market our home followed by a successful auction on site.
Neil was honest, hardworking and efficient throughout and both his advice and communication with us was excellent.
We were both extremely happy with the way Neil dealt with the whole process and thoroughly recommend his services to anyone selling a property.
Many thanks again Neil
