Cannot speak highly enough

I would describe Wendy Pearson as an exceptional real estate agent. She is highly professional, prompt in communication, no enquiry or request is to much. Timely, courteous, informative of processes, helpful and made me feel cared for.

I cannot speak highly enough about her. Even dropping in to congratulate me on my purchase with a gift box on a public holiday. Only sad I had not signed her up to sell my property.

- Lillian -Wakefield

Weren’t disheartened with a challenge

Great communication with viewings, nice to deal with, selling in a difficult market but felt like they pushed for the sale and weren’t disheartened with a challenge.

Thanks so much for all of your help!

- Max -Bishopdale

A joy to deal with

The Team at Welcome were a joy to deal with. Sarah has a calm and relaxed style, yet is onto it and gets the job done. She quickly found an ideal solution to what for me was a potential deal-breaker, and my purchase proceeded without hitch. Wendy came to the party to give the deal the final push. Clearly they work hard for the vendor but also make the process very easy for the buyer. I thoroughly recommend them, and certainly use their services in future, if needed.

- Sharen - Purchaser -Richmond

Truly fantastic to work with

From the moment we approached Wendy, right through to the settlement of our property, Wendy and Sarah were truly fantastic to work with. As this was our first property sale, we were seeking expertise that we could trust and rely on. Consulting Wendy and tapping into her extensive real estate knowledge, along with her personal wisdom, was the best decision we could have made when selecting a professional to work with. The information, process, and required steps were broken down into small, simple tasks, making the sale of our home a breeze. Sarah managed the sale of our home for the most part ( as Wendy went on annual leave during our sales process ) and Sarah did an exceptional job handling the process and buyer's interest. We can wholeheartedly recommend Wendy & Sarah from Welcome Real Estate to anyone looking to engage a trustworthy, professional, and outcome-focused agent.

- Gabe & Tash - Seller -Richmond

Best service available

Wendy and Sarah are worth their weight in gold! Their expertise and empathy made the sale of my property effortless and stress free. Wendy's knowledge and understanding of the market and her unwavering support made it easy to trust the whole process,
I would recommend Wendy and Sarah to anyone looking for the best service available.

Gave us confidence!

Working with Wendy and her experience in Real Estate gave Kris and I confidence in moving forward. Her kindness showed itself when she went through all that was in front of us. Wendy explained every detail to us in such a way, that we understood it all. Thank you so much for being there for us. Now, because of her gift in creating confidence, with us, we are now happily settled. We are sure other folk will experience her gift
Thank you, Wendy.

- Trevor & Kris


Wendy and Sarah from Welcome Real Estate recently sold our property for us. We were impressed with their integrity and tenacity as it was a difficult time to sell. Communication with us was excellent. We are very pleased with the outcome, we would use them again and would recommend them to future vendors.

- Ruth & Simon -Nelson

Many thanks again and believe us we do not stop singing your praises.

We highly recommend Wendy and Sarah from Welcome real-estate. Their professionalism was outstanding, from the day we met, till the day we got our keys. If we were to sell or buy again, I would definitely be calling these stunners.

- Seontelle - Purchaser -Nelson

Multiple offers

An easy, fast sale. Multiple offers after one open home and sold a week later.

I have sold and bought with Wendy multiple times now and it has been stress-free each time.

Thank you, Wendy!

- Jacob - Vendor -Stoke

Second to none!

Partnering with Welcome Real Estate in a very difficult and tight marketing environment has been an absolute pleasure. We experienced being kept informed and Wendy was good at advising what works and what doesn’t in presenting a house for sale, any prospective house seller would be wise to take her advice. We would recommend Welcome Real Estate to anyone, the service and integrity was second to none. We have over the years sold a number of properties and would put Welcome Real Estate at the top of the list of agents to sell a property.

Very happy

- Geoff & Lynne - Vendor -Wakefield

A breath of fresh air for Nelson

A breath of fresh air for Nelson. Welcome real-estate really is welcoming. Wendy and Sarah are a delight to deal with, nice people, honest and trustworthy, we knew we were in good hands. Communication and guidance was absolutely on point, they always sent us on the right path so the process felt easier than I assumed and heard it could be. All in all, I'd describe Welcome real-estate as professional and personal, they really cared and done an amazing job.

- Rayon - Purchaser -Stoke


Dear Wendy and Sarah,
Thanks so much for a fast moving sale that achieved a great result so quickly! I liked all aspects of the Welcome sales process where all information was provided quickly and thoroughly. I would not hesitate to recommend Welcome to other people needing to sell their property.

- Helen - Vendor -Stoke


Wendy & Sarah at Welcome Real Estate did a fantastic job and made the transition into our new home quick and easy. We gave them a difficult target date for settlement, but they were brilliant and made it happen without a glitch. We would definitely recommend Welcome Real Estate and would certainly use them again in the future. Thanks Wendy and Sarah for your professionalism and dedication for making our move go exactly to plan.

- Ben - Purchaser -Wakefield

Above & Beyond

Hi Wendy and Sarah, my brother and I really appreciate how smoothly the sale of our parents house went. It was a stressful time and you went above and beyond to make the process easy. I’m so glad we took your advice about staging the house as it made a real difference and it was great that it was a local company who did a fantastic job. Your transparency and guidance was very reassuring. Everyone who has worked with you would recommend you, I know. Thank you both for all your hard work.

- Rebecca - Vendor -Wakefield

Thank you

Thanks so much for making the sale as painless as possible! It was a pleasure to work with you and will definitely be recommending you to everyone.

- David

It was a pleasure to work with you both

- Sally

Thank You

Hello Wendy

Thank you for your congratulations, but really you and Sarah are the ones to be congratulated….. for your good steady work over these past months. I am very grateful that you stuck at it. Thank you for outlining what happens next, and again, I’m happy to leave all the details with you.

Best wishes

Just Wow

Wow service, from the start to the finish. Wendy from “Welcome” assisted with Sarah were absolutely fabulous to deal with. Wendy is super efficient, clear, on the ball and totally professional. We had success
within the first couple of weeks with Welcome. I definitely recommend using Wendy and Sarah and I certainly will in the future.

- Gloria & Helen -Bishopdale

Thank you

Yay thanks so much Wendy!! We’re very happy it’s all gone through for everyone. Thankyou for all your help you have been great ☺️ We will hear from you again soon.
Thanks Haley

Thank you

It is with great sadness that our days of buying, and selling have come to an end ONLY because we will lose that contact with Wendy.
We found her to be honest, reliable, trustworthy and a very calming influence. We are in our 80's and this final shift was so stressful from our end but when dealing with Wendy over the sale of Hollybush Drive she calmed us down and that is something that is very special to her.
We have grown to love the lady and hope that she will come visit us here.
Malcolm & Adrianne Abbott

Thank you

How do I concentrate at work today haha I’m way to excited! And thank you for EVERYTHING you have been amazing to deal with ❤️

Thank you

Hello Wendy.
Allan and I would like to sincerely thank you for all the work you put in to selling our house, and in such short time too! We had a couple of bumps along the way, but we felt everything was dealt with professionally, how nice to have a great end result! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to others who are selling their property! Thankyou! We will keep in touch!
Kindest regards, Jocelyn and Allan

Thank you

Thanks Wendy. Well done on the marketing and stitching this early sale together for us, amid challenging circumstances this week!
Much appreciated Tony

Thank you

Hi Wendy, just letting you know I have bought a property. Thanks for all your efforts, you are the best agent I've ever had dealings with.

Thank you

Hi Wendy, We wanted to say thank you for the sale of 7 Norwich Street. Your clear concise process and your very professional manner removed much of the stress & pressure from the sale situation. It was truely a pleasure working with you, we have only positive feedback and would recommend Tall Poppy as we felt included and informed of every step through the house sale. Many thanks Ingrid & Graham

Thank you

I am an entrepreneur and business man. Prior to my recently coming to Nelson I owned a very successful Queenstown business. As a buyer, seller and business director I have worked with numerous real estate agents, including household names Mr Mike Pero and Mr Michael Bulgaris. In Nelson I would know ten or twelve agents, though have only bought and sold one property here. Choosing Wendy was firstly through seeing some genuine recommendations for her from previous clients of hers on a Facebook post responding to someone asking for recommendations in Nelson. It was apparent that many other recommendations were simply rubbish, but one can tell when something is genuine.
The trust, dependability and confidence that Wendy inspires is well above any other real estate agent in Nelson that I have met. Far and away well above. Every single step of the way, Wendy had the process secure in her hands and it was a faultless achievement. With settlement day brought forward by two days to Covid 19 Lockdown Day, the communication from Wendy was spectacular, like a military exercise, in those final hours. To keep ones head in a calm, efficient way under extreme pressure and time constraints was magnificent. Of all the agents in Nelson that I have met, only Wendy could have pulled this off. I am absolutely sure of this. Of the many, many different business owners in Nelson I have had dealings with, most of those have proven utterly unreliable and communication inadequate. Even this email from you is received five weeks after the event, just saying, so...although I appreciate the quick follow ups by phone calls already received prior. Just pointing out that in business, (especially in Nelson) communication of the caliber of Wendy is non existent. It was a rare and unforgettable privilege to have worked with Wendy Pearson at this time. She got exactly the result I wanted and made it seem effortless though it required knowledge and skill that others will never, ever attain. Best Regards, Zeke

Thank you

Hi Wendy, Thank you very much for your friendly and professional guidance through the sales process. I always has been a pleasure working with you. We also wish you all the best for the future. Best regards, Markus

Thank you

Hi Wendy, Thank you for selling our house. It's been an emotionally draining process that neither tom or I wanted but you handled the situation brilliantly. Professional, compassionate and got the job done as painlessly as possible. I will definitely use you again in the future (but hopefully never in the same circumstances) I am looking for a house for myself now and I must say the real estate agents are not in the same league as you. All the best Jen

Thank you

Thanks Wendy, I'm still waiting for it all to sink in! Thanks again, you've really done a very impressive job of selling my place! Helen

Thank you

We're looking forward to moving into "the mansion" 😂 and meeting the neighbours. Thanks for helping us through this process, it's a bit scary the first time round but you've been great. Tina Pitfure Rd

Your positivity and calmness around the process was well appreciated. I have come to terms with the outcome and when you weigh up the possibilities I am content with the final amount.
Thanks again and all the best for this year

Thank you

Thank you for this opportunity to provide feedback on how pleased we are with Wendy Pearson and Tall Poppy as a real estate agency here in Nelson. Wendy met with us a couple of times to ensure all of our questions were answered, including a written price appraisal. She was very professional, courteous, and went above and beyond to ensure we felt confident in her services. Wendy was very thorough with explaining the house selling and advertising process - answering each and every question. Wendy did a fabulous job reviewing the Listing Agreement with us to ensure all was clear before signing. Absolutely thrilled with Wendy’s punctuality and attitude - never pushy and never feel rushed with our meetings/discussions. Everything has been smooth and flowing. Wendy has been extra supportive while my husband is ‘on the ice’ - very kind and considerate of booking times and checking in to see if I’m doing well. I truly feel like we are a priority, no matter how busy she gets with other bookings.

Thank you

Wendy had been such a wonderful support and vendor has recommended her to her neighbours as she is so good at her job.

Thank you

Wendy was the best he has ever used. She has a wonderful way about her of making the vendor feel completely at ease.

Thank you

Wendy has been a wonderful support person and very professional in helping us to sell our house.

Thank you

Wendy has been wonderful to deal with. An asset to your team 😊

Thank you

Thank you

Hi Wendy. Managed to get to house and do final details. My key is inside. We no longer have access 😄. Thanks again for your wonderful service. Sharon and Shirley
