Customer Reviews

After the satisfactory sale by auction of a property in our street, this agent was advised by a neighbour that we were planning to sell our house. This agent came and introduced himself. Right from the beginning, we were impressed by his confidence, enthusiasm, knowledge of the real estate market, and his total professional approach. After looking over the house, he convinced us that going to auction would be the preferred way to sell the property. This agent outlined an impressive 3 week’s marketing plan incorporating a multimedia advertising package – on the Internet, newspapers, letterbox drops – open homes, personal contacts, etc., culminating with an auction. He quickly became aware of our circumstances and he was always there to provide advice and support. The many hours this agent spent on the implementation of the marketing plan resulted in the successful sale of our house. There is no doubt that “position, position, position” has a real value in the determination of the selling price of a house, but it is more than that. It requires handling and promotion by people who have not only the expertise, knowledge, enthusiasm, and commitment but, above all people who are sensitive to, have empathy for and connection with their clients. This agent exhibited all of this, and more. We are pleased to have had this agent market and sell our house. We have no hesitation in highly recommending this agent to anyone wanting to sell a property.
I have just completed the sale of my family home in Bardon and it is fair to say that without this agent’s sound advice, hard work and professionalism I would not have achieved the outcome that I have. From the very beginning, this agent made everything fall into place. From organising a high quality marketing campaign and preparing the property to be put on the market to spending many hours meeting prospective buyers at open houses, I could not fault this agent’s approach. We worked on an advertising action plan together where I felt he listened and valued my opinions. I firmly believe that the exposure the property received through this carefully planned level of marketing was instrumental in achieving a great outcome. This agent kept up a great level of communication with me throughout the entire campaign and was always available to answer my questions and reassure me when needed. He was very active in following up any interested parties and made sure that every opportunity was explored to its full potential. I would definitely use this agent again for any future property dealings and I have no hesitation in highly recommending this agent to anyone selling their property.

Now that the sale has been finalised, just a note to say thank you for selling our townhouse. Initially not giving you much notice, I was impressed how quick you went about things to get them happening. You kept us up to date throughout the sale process which for us was very important and everything went smoothly with no issues what so ever. Once again, thank you very much for everything.

I understand it’s rare to read a testimonial from the buyer of a new home as opposed to the seller. But such was the impression this agent made on our lives, I was compelled to document our experiences for posterity. These are the facts: my new wife Camilla and I were first home buyers; we were working to a rigid budget and time frame; and, like many, we were instinctively cautious about real estate agents. After a chance run-in, I gave this agent our detailed and specific brief. Within a week, he had come back with multiple suggestions, each of which met our every requirement. He took us through the opportunities and challenges of our future dream home in a practical and thorough way, giving us thoughtful and comprehensive explanations of solutions to consider. He was always contactable – day and night – and throughout our dealings maintained an extraordinary energy. He has an extensive list of industry contacts and was able to direct us towards specialists in a range of disciplines. He is the negotiator who really worked for us. We knew he was in there fighting on our behalf; and that we could count on him for reliable and honest advice. He managed a complicated contract negotiation with aplomb, taking into account multiple parties, personalities and interests. As a family man, as a doting father of six and partner to Peta, this agent understands the pressures on working families. As such, he also understands that courtesy begins at home, and treated our negotiations with the discretion and respect they deserved. Above all, we trusted him. He looks you in the eye and calls it as he sees it. He’ll give you an insight you just won’t find elsewhere; and brings to the table a certain gravitas that makes you secure and confident in your decision making. We, the homeowners, my wife and I now live in a house we love, and one in which we’re building the lives we dreamed of. This agent is part of the reason we made it. He's knowledgeable, conscientious and charismatic, all at once. It may not surprise you to learn that we have not the slightest hesitation recommending him.
I am a builder/developer. This agent sold one of my houses in Bardon. This agent was proactive in obtaining the agency by liaising with me throughout the project build period and then close to completion, this agent introduced a purchaser who had missed out on another property in the area. This is an example of this agent understanding the market and his good facilitation skills. Previous experience made me skeptical that this would result in a sale, however to this agent's credit he understood not only both party’s requirements, but also the design in detail. This agent worked very diligently on taking the time to explain issues and answer the purchasers questions, which were understandably numerous. Consequently, we ended up with quite a few purchaser variations. This process was longer and much more detailed than a normal sale. I found this agent's knowledge of houses and the building process to be excellent. I was impressed with his work ethic, knowledge, and integrity, and basically these are the things that got the deal done to all party’s satisfaction. I do not hesitate to recommend this agent as your agent.
