Positivity is the overwhelming sensation upon meeting Anne Thomas! A genuinely caring nature and desire to provide the best service possible has served Anne well throughout her dual careers in the travel industry and real estate. Born and raised a Southlander, Anne spent 32 years working for Air New Zealand (previously NAC) in roles varying from domestic reservations through to international and corporate sales. Travelling around to take care of her business clients, Anne’s natural rapport, high standards and exceptional attention to detail stood her in good stead.
Anne and husband Roy’s interest in property has been long-standing, but really stepped up when they opted to sell a much-loved Queenstown holiday home and build their dream house at home in Invercargill. The experience of buying a section, selling the transportable home and designing their new property made a step into real estate the next natural progression.
A fitting philosophy is no surprise then, for this consummate professional; ‘In every transaction the most important thing is to give everyone a happy outcome’. This level of vendor and purchaser satisfaction has established Anne as a highly successful agent in the Southland market.
A sun-lover at heart, Anne likes to take time out to relax on the warm sands of the Sunshine Coast and Hawaii when the opportunity presents itself, but home always calls her back to Southland – where her heart is!

“It was the first time in 64 years that we required help to sell our house – Anne was the answer! She kept us very well informed of the whole process. She was a wealth of knowledge and was happy to share it all with us”

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the hard work and effort you put into selling our house. When we first met you we were immediately struck by your professionalism and this is why we decided to go with you over many other agents. You have been patient, reliable and accessible the whole way through. Your work ethic and communication skills are impeccable along with your thoughtfulness, good humour and friendly smile. Because of our buyers, the process was not straight-forward but your commitment made our sale possible (we would have taken the house off the market if it wasn’t for your perseverance on our behalf). We are extremely grateful for all you have done and we have already started recommending you to all our friends and family.”

“We bought our house off Anne and when we come to sell it we will have her as our agent. She is a very nice honest person and is lovely to deal with”.
To Whom It May Concern,
We are writing to express our complete satisfaction with Anne Thomas as our real estate agent. Throughout the entire sale process, Anne was professional, conscientious, and motivated.
We were very happy to have Anne work with us to sell our home. Anne provided us with outstanding advice about how to prepare our home for sale, and an honest and up-front appraisal on our home. She promptly returned all phone calls and had advertising in place as soon as possible. We lived outside of Invercargill, but this was not a problem, we were kept up to date by her team at all times, the communication was outstanding. We felt well looked after.
Thanks to Anne, we were able to sell our home in a very short space of time. We really appreciated Anne’s calm reassurance and expert advice throughout the entire process. Anne was the outstanding professional we were looking for, and we would therefore highly recommend Anne to anyone looking at buying or selling, you honestly wouldn’t want anyone else!! Thanks Anne!!
'Thanks again for all your input, help and great work in helping us sell, we were really pleased to have you involved and really appreciate your enthusiasm and understanding.'

Once again thank you so much.

I have no hesitation in recommending Anne to anyone contemplating buying or selling property. Anne stands out from the rest with her genuine kindness, caring nature, keeping in touch and attention to detail. Anne is most certainly a pleasure to deal with.

Thinking about selling your home and making a move to a new start and new home, there is no need to look at the full page ads in the paper and think you are getting a good team behind you to have your home sold. My wife and I chose to go with a real estate professional, Anne Thomas at Hoamz ,100 Spey Street, Invercargill due to a referral and an above and beyond experience with her at an open home. Anne has that WOW factor and is with you all the way, in every way and we found her excellent in the following areas:
Polite and very respectful
Listens to what your requirements are
Follow up by telephone after all open homes
Full explanations of the sale process and contract to sell
Constant advice and updates on where the market is at and how this may effect the sale
Having a bold and bright sign well positioned at home for sale
Turning for sale into sold
Contact between the purchaser and the seller was extremely professional at all times
Prepared to go above and beyond after hours if needed
At all times the seller/vendor came first
Advice on any outcome from the team meetings where applicable
A shiny black car with the company name on the number plate
We have been at open homes Anne is at and she is prepared to talk you through the home not just ask you to sign the book. Anne this is a great big thank you for all your help and one day we will be back for the same help and smiley service you provide.
Signed by a very happy client.

I first met Anne Thomas just over 12 months ago when attending one of her open homes. I was looking for a property for my brother to purchase, who was moving to NZ from overseas. I was immediately impressed with how Anne interacted with people and was taken by her friendly and welcoming manner. I purchased this property on behalf of my brother and Anne made everything just happen so easily. I realised then I had found a true professional who would sell my own home when the time come.
Late last year my partner and I listed our home with Anne and she exceeded all my expectations. Anne listened to what we wanted and valued our opinions. Anne offered her opinions and advice to us but always allowed any decisions to be made together. Anne's attention to detail was faultless and I had complete trust in knowing that what Anne said she was going to do, would be done. Anne has outstanding communication skills and kept in regular contact, keeping us up to date with what was happening throughout our time on the market.
Whether you are buying or selling I would highly recommend Anne. Anne works equally for the vendor as she does the buyer. Anne is a confidential, sincere, caring and committed agent who often does extra things for her clients, well beyond what would be required from an agent.
Anne, we thank you for all you have done. We truly appreciate the hard work you put into selling our home and for putting up with (one) very demanding vendor! From both of us we wish you every success in your life and career. You are no longer thought of as just an agent to us - we think of you and regard you as a friend.
Adrian and Mary
Just a note to express our thanks to Anne Thomas.
We first met Anne whilst visiting an open home at least 2 years ago and over the ensuing years Anne stayed in contact and remembered what our dreams and wishes were.
It is thanks to Anne that we are happily settled into our new home.
We can not commend Anne highly enough and you can be assured that Anne will be recommended to everyone We come into contact with.
Anne Thomas has been a real pleasure to deal with when recently purchasing a property for my daughter. She was professional and considerate throughout the process, fully appreciating my “wish list” and offering guidance on important factors to take account of. She was happy to show me a number of properties and discussed frankly with me the advantages and disadvantages of each according to what I was looking for. I always felt comfortable that she was looking for the best solution for me and not just another sale. I have utilised several agents for purchasing properties over a number of years and can without hesitation say Anne has been the best to work with of all these.
Anne - you did a great job at Alice St. It all looks so spacious - a lot more tasteful and uncluttered. What a good eye you have, you should be in 'interior decorating'.
Yes, we certainly received good advice about whom to choose for our real estate agent!

‘Your professional time and care re the sale of our home will never be forgotten by both of us. Thanks Anne’
"My partner and I have recently purchased our first home. During the time we spent looking for our home, Anne Thomas stood out above all of the other real estate agents we dealt with.
Anne is a sincere person who always acted professionally, was fantastic at communicating with us, listened to us and valued our opinions. She regularly kept us updated about houses that her company had listed. She was very obliging and more than willing to show us through homes at times that best suited us. If Anne said she would do something, she always followed through with it.
I would recommend Anne Thomas to anyone wanting to buy or sell a house, as I believe she would represent both parties honestly and fairly."
"I've always been a big believer in giving credit where it is due hence this email.
Anne, I cant thank you enough for the way you dealt with me when purchasing my new home. Your professional caring approach was both refreshing and reassuring. You allowed me to go at my own pace; didn't put any pressure on me and genuinely wanted the best for me as well as your Vendor. That in itself gave me the upmost faith and confidence in you as you didn't try and sell the Vendor out in an effort just to get the sale like I have experienced so many times before. So often you here people saying " I would never buy a house off him/her but I'd get them to sell mine!" Anne, I'd have you doing both. Your integrity, honesty and genuinely friendly disposition make you the obvious and perfect choice.
Finally I would like to thank you for the follow up and ownership towards your after sales care. You don't just "Talk the Talk" Anne, you "Walk the Walk"
If you ever need any references or recommendations please feel free to mention my name."

"Everyone always says that buying & selling a home is one of the most stressful things you can do. We can honestly say that thanks to Anne this wasn't the case at all, she was so friendly,organised & professional. She sold our house quickly and also found us our lovely new home. We have always told our friends how wonderful she is to deal with, and would say to anyone looking at selling or buying to give Anne a call."
"When my wife and I decided to sell our home in 2008 we approached Anne Thomas after meeting her while attending an open home. We were impressed with Anne's manner and warm friendliness and decided to list our home with her. We had our home on the market for approximately six weeks until sold and during this time we were kept in regular communication regarding peoples interest and open home attendances. Although this was a slow time in the market Anne had managed to find the right person with the right offer. The whole process went very well and certainly a many times better than previous experiences we have had when buying or selling homes. I would recommend Anne Thomas to anyone choosing to buy or sell real estate."
