Vicky and her team were simply outsatnding. From our first contact we were impressed by their professionalism and prositive attitude. We still can't belive the speed in which our home was sold and how easy the process was. I will certainly be recomending Vicky and her team of Michelle and Leanne to people as well

Mark and Amanda
Vicky and team recently sold our house. She did it in a very short time after listing which really amazed us as we had it previously listed with another Agent for seven months. She tabled three offers, two unconditional! Thanks Again Vicky.
C Hickey
Vicky and her team are all very approachable people. There is no hesitation in their answers to your questions, both could identify with our reasons for being interested in the property we purchased and could also reassure us and give us good examples why it was a good investment and sound move. Excellent contact is maintained and we have no hesitation in marketing our property with yourselves as we know that working for the vendor for the best result is your absolute priority.
Kate and Craig
I found Vicky who I dealt with very professional and very helpful. I would have no hesitation using Vicky again.
John M
We experienced very friendly professional, caring service. Every attention was paid to detail where our open home days were concerned. Plenty of notice was given prior to people coming to view the house on other times. Vicky’s vast experience shone through, along with her personality and guidance. A “Listening Ear” got us through a few personal problems. All of these enabled our home to be sold quickly and smoothly. We have and will continue to recommend your skills to others – Thank You
Arthur & Marcia James
We recently sold our home through Vicky Ashton and her support team and found them excellent. From beginning to end we knew exactly what the economical situation was and what we could expect to sell our house for. The team did a thorough area background search and kept us in the loop.

Jan & Don
We recently sold our home through Vicky Ashton and her support Team, Sandra and I found these ladies were very easy to talk to with the selling of our home. The professional way they went about with our Open House selling was absolutely brilliant. Without doubt we would not hesitate using these ladies home selling services again.
We recently sold our home and purchased another through Vicky Ashton and her support team: Leticha and I were very happy with Vicky’s approach to the sale of our property as well as negotiating for us in buying another home. “You only get what you pay for” if you want sold go for the best and that’s what we did. Very professional and knows her stuff. Communication was excellent and the team were very friendly. We would recommend Vicky to any of our friends and family.
Andy, Leticha & Ashton
Thanks a million Vicky Ashton, yes we have SOLD. Having listed our Beach Batch with Vicky we didn’t expect to sell it so soon at this time of year. It was truly amazing; we loved the personal feedback posted to us each week. Feedback is very important. Vicky had the great fortune of having a holiday in the middle of our sale and Jenny Brooking took over for her. Thank You Jenny. Holiday over Vicky was straight back on the job keeping us up to date. We have been so pleased with Vicky that I have in fact passed on another friend with a property for sale to Vicky.
Fay and Mike Hartley
Recently I bought a property through Vicky. I found her to be excellent to deal with. She was neither ‘pushy and in your face’ nor was she too understated – her style suited what I wanted in a Real Estate Agent. She was open and honest in answering my queries and very helpful. If she didn’t know the answer, she followed through and within 24 hours she had them. I would, and have, recommended Vicky to anyone. She was a pleasure to deal with. Many thanks Vicky, it’s been great dealing with you.
She was fabulous!! Vicky is honest, reliable and very easy to work with. Thanks very much.
Aaron & Rachael Hine
Vicky is very thorough in gathering information before the listing takes place so that she can be best prepared to answer enquiries from prospective buyers. Feedback is consistent by way of phone, email, newsletters and graphs. The small team at Urban Studio are friendly and helpful. You feel confident that messages will be relayed and that if necessary the agents can look after you if Vicky is out of the area/not directly on hand. Thanks for all your hard work Vicky. You are prepared to put yourself on the line to reach a sale and support your clients.
Tracey Haskell
We recently sold a porperty through Vicky Ashton and were thrilled with the service we got. Right from the time Vicky stepped through our door she inspired confidence in us that she would sell the property. She was genuinely interested. We had another, larger, company come to do an appraisal and we felt like "Ho hum, another one to go on the board". We were very happy with the feedback Vicky gave us through the entire process and with her enthusiasm when it came to marketing the property on the internet. We certainly would not hesitate to contact Vicky in the future if looking or selling another property. In fact, she will be our first point of call.

We recently sold a property through Vicky Ashton and from the time we listed our property and the time we signed to put the sold sign up, we felt we were in very professional hands. I found Vicky's approach and personal appearance in dealing with the sale of our house beyond reproach. Vicky was very positive, extremely honest about 8 Ashmore Drive; pointed out the positives and negatives to result in an easy sale. Vicky was outstanding in presenting herself at our open homes. In dealing with Urban Studio I have found all the agents very professional and know in the future I shall always be singing their praises. Well done Urban Studio.
Dale & Dallas Goldfinch
We recently listed and sold our home with Vicky Ashton and her PA Jarred Hancox of Urban Studio Properties Ltd. Jarred guided us through the sale process very professionally, he was always available for any enquiries and was quick to provide answers. We found Jarred to be a good mediator in the sale process, a position which relies on honesty and integrity whilst working with a vendor and purchaser simultaneously. We were stoked with the outcome that Jarred facilitated and would highly recommend him.
Rob & Kim Evans
We have recently had dealings with Vicky Ashton at Urban Studio, both in the purchase of a new home and then the sale of our existing home. Vicky, with excellent assistance from Jarred, has impressed us in every aspect of both processes. During the purchase Vicky was upfront, accurate and totally professional. She quickly ascertained that we were genuine buyers and went out of her way for us from then on. Once the purchase was completed, the listing and sale of our existing property began. Once again her professionalism was obvious and her advice was outstanding. Urban Studio maintains the same level of professionalism towards their clients regardless of whether they are vendors or buyers. This was a pleasant, and not totally expected experience. The overall process from 1st viewing to sale took only 3 weeks. We would totally recommend Urban Studio to anyone buying or selling property in New Plymouth
Dave & Suzy Watson
When buying a house I need an environment of trust and freedom to not be railroaded nor manipulated. Jarred has been quietly meticulous ensuring that the process of buying and selling can occur unhindered so that both sides can be brought together in an unconfrontation way. The process gets straight to what both parties want and it's painless. Thanks heaps for a job well done , Jarred (with Vicky's help & guidance of course).
Hugh Mills
Jay and I just wanted to say thank you for selling our property. You were effective and so professional in the way that you dealt with us that it has restored our faith in real estate agents! We will have no hesitation in recommending you or Urban Studio in the future. Thanks again Keryn and Jay
Keryn & Jay
I recently listed my home with Vicky & Jarred. The whole process was very new to me, they were very imformative throught, and I was very happy wiht the way they sealed the deal. It was a great result all in under one month. All the best to the new vendors. AAA+++
Francis Harris
We recently sold our property through Vicky, our level of service was excellent from the advice we received prior to signing up with Urban Studio through to going unconditional in 14 days. Vicky provided a number of items we should address prior to bringing the property to the market. As we followed this advice, the property achieved the upper brand of Vicky's estimated selling price which was very pleasing. We would recommend the company for selling any property.
Dave & Josee
Having recently sold our house we can recommend Jarred to anyone considering selling their property. He was both easygoing and professional to deal with. We’re sure that if you engage him to sell your property, you will not be disappointed.
Frank & Maria Harris
I sold my house through Urban Studio - Vicky Ashton and Jarred Hancox. The house was sold within a month, thanks to Vicky’s and Jarred’s joint efforts. I was very pleased with the result and can certainly recommend using them as their level of professionalism is very high. Jarred was very actively involved right from the beginning. I live outside NZ and the house was rented for a while so it was crucial for me to have somebody in NP who will look after everything from the beginning till the end. Jarred was amazing helping to prepare the house for sale, monitor every single detail, liaising with the property manager and really protecting my interests. He represented me and negotiated with the property manager and tradesmen. He was extremely effective and looked after my house like his own. I was constantly updated about the progress and he did not miss even the smallest of details. Jarred always asked my opinion and I felt very inclusive in the process and he always followed up with any task or action that was required. He was very professional with the buyer and managed to keep him interested skilfully and patiently negotiating all the way until he reached a successful result. Jarred is proactive, very hard working and extremely pleasant to deal with. He and Vicky handled the entire deal extremely well and as a result both buyer and seller are happy. I would not hesitate to use their service any time if I need real estate professionals.
Anna Chounkova & Dmitry Molokhov
We recently purchased a property through Vicky Ashton and Jarred Hancox. Jarred gave us excellent guidance, along with Vicky, from our 1st appointment to settlement. Jarred was courteous, prompt with all enquiries, always returned messages as received and kept us well informed throughout our negotiating process. We enjoyed dealing with Jarred. His relaxed, friendly, non-pressure attitude was appreciated. Vicky has given excellent training to Jarred.
The Days
We found Vicky to be totally professional. We were able to contact both her and Jarred at any time. Vicky has a thorough understanding of the housing market and handled our negotiations confidently. Our house was well presented, we were very pleased with the photographs and the attention to detail. Urban Studio showed in their marketing.
Paul & Julie
We recently purchased a property through Vicky Ashton and have found her to be very helpful & professional. All phone calls were answered promptly & any queries answered to our satisfaction. Our purchase went through without any problems. Also Jarred was a very helpful colleague as well.
Des & Pauline
I was very impressed with the company’s approach to selling houses. Vicky and Jarred were very professional and showed good knowledge of the market. It was a good team effort on their behalf, they kept me informed at all times with what was happening. I would recommend them for all future selling and buying of properties. Thanks a lot for the great result!
Errol Bowling
We recently sold a property through Vicky Ashton and happy we chose "Urban Studio". Vicky & Jarred were most helpful; - 1) Kept us fully informed all the way. 2) Gave us good advice and appraisal prior to sale & "signing up". 3) Liased well with our tenant about our "open homes" etc. 4) Prompt feedback was much appreciated.
Frank & Lorraine
We had excellent service from Vicky & Jarred who kept us informed every step of the way. We started off the promotion with mainly internet coverage but was then advised to have open homes which certainly increased the interest. There were plenty of visits by the Urban Studio team so that we felt comfortable with the whole process. We believe that working together as a team, you and Jarred are able to offer better service than a solo agent could offer.
John & Jude Marshall
Vicky, Jarred and the Urban Studio team yet again have provided an outstanding sales product. It is because of their unwavering professionalism and attention that I will continue using their service.
Steve Kemp
Thank you very much for all your emails and phone calls and keeping me up to date. I was very happy with that. I came up with the marketing thoughts in terms of wanting to sell both titles in one, and Vicky relayed this perfectly into marketing the property both online and in print publications. And obviously I am happy with the result Vicky & Jarred achieved in working for me.
"The Vendor" @ 61 Doone St
Thank you so much Jarred, Vicky and your team at Urban Studio. We are thrilled with the result, ecstatic with the timing and looking forward to our new adventure. We certainly will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who is selling their property as you have been a pleasure to deal with.
Susan and Paul and Family
I am temporarily labouring under a medical condition and need to rely on others to act on my behalf. My son in Tauranga contacted his colleagues in New Plymouth for their recommendation of successful land agents in the area. Urban Studio was one of their suggestions and I have also heard of their high success rate from others. An excellent choice, one I would repeat if necessary, one I would not hesitate to recommend.
