Sharine has been fantastic to deal with
Sharine has been fantastic to deal with - I couldn't fault her. She has the whole process down to a fine art - communication is awesome, she is a very skilled negotiator and goes the extra mile for her clients. I would not hesitate to recommend her.
What an amazing experience selling our first home!
What can we say? What an amazing experience selling our first home! Sharine has been awesome ... from the detailed communication to the little treats left after open homes! We have felt part of the whole process and have been so happy with everything Sharine has done for us!

Sharine’s responsiveness and communication reduces it to a minimum
“Selling a house can be a stressful experience but Sharine’s responsiveness and communication reduces it to a minimum.”
“Sharine has an ability to know when to push and how much. That can often be the difference in closing the deal at the best price.”
They got the best result for me!
I first met Sharine 7 years ago when I bought my house. I’ve been in contact asking various questions since, she’s so lovely and always willing to help with any real estate questions. Sharine and her team at Professionals were the obvious choice when I came to sell. I thoroughly enjoyed the process because they were so friendly, fun, calming and were definitely on my side which was very reassuring. They got the best result for me!
Couldn't have asked for a better agent!
Sharine and her entire team at Prostar are very professional, always attentive to details and very easy to work with. You know that are always after your best interest. Sharine is very quick to every query and always gives you great advice. We couldn't have asked for a better agent. I highly recommend Sharine and the Prostar team to anyone seeking a truly professional real estate agency
Michael & Maria
Recommend without hesitation!
Thanks Prostar for your hard work! You were great to deal with from the start and gave us lots of helpful tips along the way! We would recommend you to anyone looking to sell their home without hesitation!
Sharine was excellent at negotiating on our behalf and we were very happy with the sale price. I would recommend Sharine and her team to any vendor looking to maximise their sale price!
Jono & Suz
We received a dozen offers within the first week
This was no fluke, nor was it the result of an over inflated sellers’ market, this was due to Sharine’s astute knowledge of the market, clever marketing strategy and her remarkable ability with buyers.
Dan & Jo
A clear, concise, marketing plan
The whole team working with Sharine are amazing, friendly and accommodating to the needs of our young family. The extra touches made us enjoy coming home after the dreaded open homes - the yummy cookies, wee present for our daughter, plus more.
Scott, Emma & Harper Reid
Exceeded our expectations
Up until we met Sharine we were very sceptical about the value that real estate agents could add to the process, especially in such a strong property market.
We were blown away with her professionalism, care and attention to detail.
Cathy & Mark
Thank you for minimising the stress
We are writing to thank you again for looking after us so well during the process of preparation, marketing and selling our home at Pixie Place.
Without hesitation we recommend you to anyone wishing to sell their home.
Mike & Rachel
Honest, hardworking and communicative
Sharine helped me sell my house while I was going through a difficult time in my life that required me making life changing decisions. Sharine is a master strategist and will help you get the best price possible for your house!
Your friendly approach and constant confident demeanour gave us reassurance that everything would be ok and I’m sure this is why it was less stressful than it could have been.
Jenny & Karl
Sharine got us the best result
She made the process super easy and got us the best result that was beyond our expectations. She kept us informed throughout the process and was easily accessible to answer questions when needed.
Lezel & Cobus
We found Sharine a competent communicator, had clear goals for marketing our property and a strong desire to create a multiple-offer situation to obtain the best possible outcome for us, which she did.
Gilbert & Christine
Sharine works for the vendor
As a result of Sharine's guidance and skills we got a price well beyond what we anticipated (77% over CV). She works for the vendor and really makes a difference in achieving your goals.
Our family does not give praise lightly, in your case praise is deserved!
Your great reputation made you our only choice when we decided to sell our house, we knew immediately we had made the right decision.
David & Christina
Genuinely felt you had my best interest at heart
I wish to thank you so much for a very successful sale of my property in Macleans Road. Your knowledge, expertise and friendly personality was outstanding.
We got so much more than we anticipated
If you want an honest deal and the best price when selling your home then Sharine is the agent you want.
Cliff & Debbie
Efficient and obliging
Sharine went way beyond our expectations in organising all details, including contractors for additional work we wanted to do. Her efficient and obliging assistance enabled us to achieve a highly successful result in a very short time.
Wayne & Jackie
Fabulous person to work with
She spends time going through the necessities and helps with ideas for staging your home, so it is marketed to its full potential.
Geoff & Irene
Sharine's expertise and knowledge is second to none
Once we made the decision to sell our special first home Sharine made the whole process simple and stress-free. Her expertise and knowledge of the Howick and Pakuranga area is second to none.
Sarah & Blair (and Kyle & Jack)
A signed contract within 30 hours of the first open home
Her prompt, sensitive responsiveness to our queries/suggestions and her pro-active involvement in the selling process contributed to the best possible outcome - a multiple offer and signed contract within 30 hours of the first open home.
Barry & Val
We were exceptionally pleased with the sale price
When we came to sell our home we took the opportunity to interview several agents before choosing Sharine - the only agent who could explain a step by step plan to maximise our sales price. It was clear that our desired outcome and her’s were aligned.
Mike & Lara
Sharine provided a total marketing approach
Sharine also provided a highly effective interior presentation service to ensure the house was presented in a way to maximise the floorplan/space. Weekly updates regarding website views, group visits during open homes and feedback from potential purchasers was also provided
Mark, Amanda, Alyssa and Emma
Six offers after the first weekend of open homes
I contacted Sharine to sell my elderly father's home in Howick. In all dealings with my parents, she was most professional and pleasant to deal with.
After the first weekend of open homes Sharine had six offers on the table from which my parents could select the most appropriate. The deal was done that night and the property went unconditional 10 days later.
Eight offers - so simple and so rewarding
Everyone says moving house is stressful.
Sharine took the stress away as she guided us through the whole process with an amazing talent for knowing her customers were two very nervous novices.
One weekend of open homes, eight offers later, so simple and sooooo rewarding $$$$$$$
Ray & Patricia
Enthusiasm, honesty and a good sense of humour
Our house was not easy to sell during uncertain times in the housing market but she remained confident and hardworking - we were very happy with the end result.
We felt right from the start that [Sharine] had our interest at heart
Everything you did was carried out in a professional and friendly manner and Tony and I felt right from the start that you had our interest at heart and a positive result would be forthcoming.
Your progress reports after the open days were informative and helpful.
Tony & Jan
Highly recommend Sharine
We appreciated her professionalism, confidence and excellent communication skills throughout the process of selling our home, along with her friendly and personal approach.
Residents of Channing Crescent
Exceptional negotiating skills
We have sold 10 houses in our married lifetime. Sharine was 'head and shoulders' over and above the other agents that we had previously encountered.
Sharine was clearly an excellent marketer and she has exceptional negotiating skills securing us the best possible price for our home.
Anne & Dennis
Sharine's service was sensational
Another big thank you for all your efforts in selling 28 Lisa Rise.
Believe me, I have told everyone how good you are and they are nuts if they don't choose you to sell their houses.
All the little extras were wonderful - the cookies spring to mind - and nothing was too much trouble.
Blown away by your efficiency!
Thank you for delivering on your promises and the agreed timeline at every point. It has been a delight doing business with you!
Arthur & Dorrie
Genuine customer focus
Here's what we enjoyed with Sharine:
Genuine customer focus - took time to listen and hear what we wanted
Clear & timely communication
Great feedback & preparation on what to expect
Practical support in getting ready (interior consult) and her thoughtful gifts to the kids especially on keeping their rooms neat were a winner!
Zanele & Simba
Thanks Sharine, you definately are a "Prostar"!
Nothing was too much trouble, everything was explained in an honest, easy to understand manner, no matter what time of day or night!
Now we are saying goodbye to our beautiful family home of 14 years and ready to embark on a new adventure!
Grant & Claire
Sharine worked hard to get us a brilliant result
We are so glad we chose Sharine to sell our home.
She made the whole process easy and stress-free and kept us well informed from start to finish.
Dan & Lisa Powell
You made us feel important
If you are selling a house, then Sharine Burns of Professionals Real Estate is your key person.
This is the only time we can honestly say we didn't mind paying the real estate fee.
Bruce & Lesley
Sharine was the right person to sell our home
After living in my house for 21 years, and meeting several agents I thought this process was going to be very stressful. I then met Sharine and I suddenly felt the pressure lifted, she put me at ease, she took the time to explain the marketing in lots of detail which made me feel very relaxed, I then knew she was the right person to sell our home.
Continuously kept us updated
Sharine, you have all that it takes for a swift sale at the street record price. After only two weeks of advertising, our house was sold for a price we were very happy with.
We all miss your cookies which, along with your pizza treat, not only kept our spirits high, but also made our move to the new house easier :)
Himanshu & Vandana
I picked the right agent!
First weekend on the market and Sharine created 10 offers. The negotiations were not concluded until the buyer refused to pay another dollar rather than when I accepted – clearly I picked the right agent. Thanks again Sharine!
Phone Sharine, she's outstanding!
I went for a sail with the sailmaker. Don't remember how it came up, but I casually remarked that I needed to sell a house. The sailmaker said, "Phone Sharine, she's outstanding!"
The sailmaker was very, very right. Team Sharine really know their stuff!
A true professional
Sharine is a hardworking, dedicated and pleasant individual , who goes to extraordinary lengths to secure the best possible deal for her clients.
To maximise your returns on your property, look no further than Sharine Burns – a true professional in every sense of the word... excuse the pun because its true!

Effective marketing strategies
We visited many of the open homes Sharine held in our area over the years we lived there and were always greatly impressed with her effective marketing strategies and the prices she achieved. We decided well in advance that when we were ready to move, she would be our agent.
Dillan & Miranda
Everything Sharine had promised she delivered
As it was my first time putting a house on the market I did think I had just received one big sales pitch from my original meeting with Sharine but I couldn’t have been more mistaken.
I trusted her. Everything she had promised she delivered. My house was rented so she had to deal with tenants, the photos were fantastic, her plan of when to go to market was spot on and after receiving multiple offers I sold my property for more than I expected.
Sharine never pressured us
Not only did we beat our street record price by $50k, but the sales process was swift and smooth.
Sharine never pressured us to sell quick nor did she bring potential buyers in when the house was not ready for presentation.
Lai, Lily & Ena
Sharine made the process less stressful
I chose Sharine after extensive research. She met every need I had when selling my home.
Sharine made the process less stressful and I am happy to recommend her.
Efficient and energetic
The process was a lot less stressful than we had anticipated. Sharine was very efficient and energetic, she made us feel confident and excited about our house sale.
Doug & Rosaline
The sale of our house only took four days from start to finish!
We chose Sharine over a number of other agents, as we found her to have a great presence that made us feel comfortable.
Sharine knows the market inside and out.
Steve & Melanie
Sharine worked tirelessly for a smooth and stress free sale
We first met Sharine while viewing an open home and were immediately taken by her friendliness. This, plus Sharine’s professionalism, made her an easy choice of selling agent.
We won’t think twice about who to call next time.
Dushan & Anu
Friendly, professional and hard working
Sharine helped to sell our neighbours house and they were very happy with the result so we contacted her to market our home.
Sharine provided weekly reports showing us all the information we wanted to know and called us after every open home.
Weillin & Zhaoyu
Sold within five days at a price much greater than we expected
Sharine demonstrated in all the steps leading up to placing the house on the
market her mastery of the psychology of selling and we were more than
completely satisfied when having placed the house on the market it was sold
within five days at a price much greater then we expected.
Sharine's marketing strategy is brilliant
Sharine presented us with a well thought out marketing plan which led to multiple offers and enabled us to sell our house quickly for a great price.
All the best Sharine, we (even Rubyn the dog), will not forget you.
Anne & Mike
My initial suggestion of privately verses engaging a land agent was clearly put to rest! I would most certainly recommend Sharine to anyone.
A successful sale with the first people through
Selling my home after 20 years was always going to be a stressful situation.
Though I am not keen to go through the experience again, having a professional, caring person to help me through made it almost painless.
Thorough commitment to our property
Proof was in the pudding. We were ecstatic with the result she achieved for us. It has really set us up for our next adventure, and with our house being our biggest investment, it was very important that this was our outcome.
Coming from a couple who were very sceptical of the value an agent could add to the sale of our house, we are happy to admit how wrong we were!
We have one word for Sharine - Amazing!
From start to finish, everything went well. We are very pleased with the outcome.
Vao & Earl
Sharine is a breath of fresh air!
Most agents just do the minimum to get a sale, but Sharine goes the extra mile to ring as much as possible out of the deal for the vendor. The cookies were very nice, especially the white chocolate ones!!
Sharine - Cool, Calm & Collected
Overall Sharine guided us through the process in a very 'Professional' and caring way. She took the reigns, put an excellent team together and the result was perfect! Sharine ticked all the boxes for us so we give her a 10 out of 10!
Belinda & Sally
Our sale price reached not only a street record, but a local area record!
We had eight offers on the first weekend of open homes .
A journey with Sharine doesn’t stop there, it’s also the little caring extra touches that sets her apart – home baked cookies, little presents on my children’s beds, the list goes on!
Rob & Rachel
Always available to answer our questions
Sharine was amazing from start to finish and although it was a stressful time selling our house, she made the whole thing much easier!
She was always available to answer our questions and was open, honest and genuine throughout the whole sale process.
Sharine gave us very sound advice
We received some great advice, but not the advice you would expect to receive from someone who makes a living off selling houses.
Thanks so much Sharine, not for helping us sell our home, but for helping us to stay in our home. My family and I are so thankful that there are professionals like you out there, truly willing to put the needs of their customers first.
Blair & Lashana
Sharine gave us very sound advice
Today the media often categorises real estate sales people with second hand car dealers and politicians, but we found that beyond doubt there is a lady who is the complete antithesis of all that.
Des & Connie
She's not like other agents
We couldn't have reached for such a high price without Sharine's help. She gave us an estimated selling range only one day after our first discussion, and house was sold after the Auction. The price was $75K over the top bid and also exceeded the original range.
We highly recommend Sharine to anyone who wants to sell their house for a premium price.
Wei & Lilin
We wanted someone we could trust
In my opinion you earned every penny.
Maybe we were just lucky but I think the decisions which made the difference were the painting and decorating, the great photography, the auction process and yes, the staging! I loved that you were prepared to keep 'selling' those ideas until we were sold. Of course all of those things cost us money but for me, our investment was repaid many times over. Those decisions were largely down to you (and to you Stew & Simon).
Very best wishes.
Primary goal was to maximise value
I would like to express my sincere thanks to you for the very professional service you provided related to the sale of my property in Highland Park. Your sale documentation was well presented, you were very responsive in your communications and it was clear that your primary goal was to maximise value to me as your customer.
So thanks again and all the best!
Integrity and professionalism
We have now purchased and sold a home with Sharine, and regardless of whether we have been the purchaser or the vendor, Sharine's friendly persona, integrity and professionalism shone through on both occasions.
Blair & Lashana
Staging created a warm and inviting mood [for my property]
It is a unique experience for me to have never met in person the agent selling my home. As a vendor, who was at the time living on the other side of the world, I was extremely fortunate to have had Sharine in charge of my sale, running the show.
Proof of pudding is ultimately in the eating and, as you’d imagine, Sharine achieved for me a sale price at the very top end of her valuation for which I was very, very grateful to her.
We had multiple offers in no time
We eventually listed our property with Sharine, had multiple offers and interest in no time we were very pleased with the result.
NOTHING was too much trouble. She was helpful, friendly, kind, patient and understanding before, during and after our sale - we thoroughly recommend her!
Bob & Val
"Over the moon!"
“Over the moon!” is an expression of our great delight in the result of the Auction Sale of our house.
“Professionals?” - Yes! And Sharine is worthy of the name. We totally recommend her, and stand by her in all we have said.
John & Irene
A fantastic marketing approach that really works!
She has a fantastic marketing approach that really works! She kept us in the loop over every decision and discussion, and went the extra mile with care and consideration for our family.
Sharine stands out as a Real Estate agent who is on your side!
Michael & Rachel
Above and beyond
Sharine is one in a million, she is a very savvy business woman who knows her market well and has put together a selling plan that delivers results.
Six offers were presented after the first weekend of Open Homes and my mother and the family were delighted with the result. I would recommend Sharine to anyone looking to sell their property.
It is a year ago today that you made us rich and famous, well rich!!!
We thank you for making it such a pleasant experience.
Trevor & Irene
Sharine went above and beyond to reach the best result
Sharine was professional from the very beginning, and provided us with a coherent marketing strategy and gave us lots of details on the whole process.
We were confident that Sharine represented us to the best of her abilities and that we were in the best of hands.
Stefan & Paula
If you are thinking of selling your home, we would strongly recommend using the services of Sharine for a stress-free experience.
She understood how daunting selling your home can be when you are busy and gave us lots of good advice about getting organised and preparing for Open Homes.
Christine & Dave
She's the real deal
If you are serious about selling your property and require action, Sharine is your girl.
Take it from me, she's the real deal, with amazing integrity and totally works to her vendors best interests.
Bill & Helen
Our family home set a record price for the street
In a depressed market hit by a world recession, Sharine's sales technique ensured the sale of our family home set a record price for the street. Well done Sharine!
We achieved a very satisfactory outcome
Sharine Burns sold two houses for our family during 2015, our son’s and then our own.
We quickly learned to have confidence in Sharine’s judgement and found that her strategy for the sale of our property was sound and proceeded as planned. We received good advice, followed it and achieved a very satisfactory outcome.
David & Judy
There is no smoke without fire
We were selling and asked for peoples opinions on the East Auckland Grapevine (Facebook page); we had a fantastic response and Sharine Burns' name stood out, not only because it came up five times more than anyone else, but because of the numerous positive experiences and great results people reported.
We decided there is no smoke without fire and gave her a call.
Mark & Bernie
We couldn't be more pleased
We quizzed Sharine on her fee. We thought it was a lot of money for selling our house, she said adding value was her responsibility and set a record price to prove it. We couldn’t be more pleased.
Peter & Sandra
Caring extra touches set her apart
Not only is Sharine committed, she simply goes above and beyond in everything she does – from all of the extra’s and solid advice she offers in preparing your home for sale, through to her communication and follow up – can’t be faulted.
Rob & Rachel
