Shirley Bush

Residential/Lifestyle Sales Consultant

About Shirley

Real estate property consultants wear many hats. They need to be salespeople, counsellors, negotiators and mortgage brokers – among other attributes. Shirley Bush is all of these and more. Born and bred on the Taieri, and after a long career in the armed forces, Shirley decided to change the direction of her life. She retrained and became a licensed real estate salesperson, and has been successfully selling properties in the greater Dunedin area for the past two decades, especially in Mosgiel and her home town of Outram. With a passion for travel that enables her to see the world through a different lens, Shirley combines honesty with a sense of humour. This helps her build strong relationships with her clients and sees her being referred often by her clients to friends and family looking for professional real estate sales help. The personal pride she takes in her work and her common sense are often cited by clients as two of the things they like most about working with Shirley. Her low-key, practical approach contrasts nicely with a colourful dress sense! She is also an outstanding property consultant, so when you need help with your next property sale, Shirley is the person to call.

Great service and association with Shirley, who kept me well informed of all approaches and gave me plenty of warning to prepare the house for open homes and individual inspections.

I am so pleased I took a friend's recommendation to have Shirley sell our house. Her communication with me along the way was much appreciated. Nothing was any trouble and she made the process for me much easier than it could have been. I would recommend Shirley to anyone else wanting to sell their house. A very big thank you from me.

Thank you Shirley & PB team for your professionalism and sound advice concerning the sale of our life-style property. Shirley, your positive attitude and attention to detail was second to none. Your understanding of the current volatility of the property market was reflected in our speedy sale. It was a win-win for both parties concerned and we would certainly recommend you to any vendor who wants a reliable and friendly agent to sell their property. Good luck with your future sales!

Shirley was great, very helpful, efficient and lovely to work with.
We have met Shirley a few times through houses she was selling out Outram way, we had missed out on a couple but, she was so lovely to deal with, she is really knowledgeable about the area, and really passionate about selling homes and helping us find our next one! And of course such a delight to talk to at open homes! Through various open homes she got to know us and exactly what we were after, she gave us a call about Lynas Street, we went to a open home and the rest is history! We can't wait to move into our new home, thanks Shirley!!
Aimee and Reagan Little
As first home buyers, Shirley made our first property purchase a pleasant and exciting one. At the open home, we were impressed with her passion, diligence and knowledge of the property. From then on, she was Incredibly patience, caring and understanding. Shirley worked extremely hard to make the process as smooth as possible and was always happy to answer our first home buyer questions. I would recommend Shirley as an agent as she definitely has the interest of both parties in mind, not just the seller. Thank you, Shirley, for supporting and guiding us through the purchase of our first home together.

It is my pleasure to write that Shirley is at the top of her field. She is a proficient, highly skilled and professional negotiator, which of course, makes for one very competent agent. Her years of experience were invaluable to e in how to prepare my home for he makes and the documentation I should have prior to the Open Homes. I had many, many groups through the 1st Open Home due to the marketing and the professional photographs and I received multiple offers that resulted in an unconditional sale three days later, far in excess of my expectations. I feel this was entirely due to her forward thinking in that we had all the necessary information to secure the successful buyer so quickly. Shirley was brilliant!
Carol Youngman
Wow that was quick! All sorted in 29 hours. Viewing to approved purchase. Thank you Shirley, for a smooth transaction.
Doug and Vicki
In 2016 we purchased a home in Outram. Shirley was the agent and despite the fact that an agent works for the seller, Shirley was wonderful to deal with and genuinely did her best for both parties. Fast forward to 2022 and we have just successfully sold our home with Shirley's help and guidance. Having bought and sold a number of properties in the past, we easily rate Shirley as the best agent we have had the pleasure of working with and we unreservedly recommend Shirley to anyone considering selling a property.
