Customer Reviews

We would like to thank the team at this agent Real Estate for the successful sale of our sister-in-law's home. It was a stressful time for Nellie when she realised that she could no longer live on her own and needed to move to a more assisting environment. It was probably just as stressful for us when we were given the task of finding an agent who understood Nellie's situation and not blind us with high expectations and sales hype. We contacted several agents and listened to what they had to offer, but, when Simon Cookson walked through our door and sat down with the three of us, we knew immediately we had found the agency we were looking for. Simon's manner, approach and understanding of Nellie's situation put us at ease as the procedure was explained to us and the fact that we were dealing with the person who would be handling the whole sale process through to, and including, the auction. We were more than satisfied with the auction result and have no hesitation in recommending this agent Real Estate to anyone contemplating the sale of their property. - John and this agent ine
I recently had to sell my mother's house and right from the first meeting, I knew that these were the agents for us. I was most impressed by their presentation, appearance, experience and professionalism. Both Simon and Nicole were very sensitive to the needs of an eighty-three year old who was selling her home after more than fifty years. They showed great understanding and kindness to her. With their advice, I achieved a sale in a flat market which suited me and the buyer, allowing plans for my mother to proceed. I would have no hesitation in recommending this agent Mc Donald Real Estate to anyone. I wish them all the best in a competitive business and I'm sure that their delivery of service will bring success in the future. - Marilyn
Dean and I want to personally thank Nicole Barrow for the outstanding result achieved with the sale of our property. Living interstate, Nicole went that extra mile by helping to organise and prepare our house for sale. Meetings with Dean at his Melbourne office from the initial enquiry stage through to the signing of documents was never a problem. We appreciated that Nicole was always contactable and if not, our calls were returned promptly. We were always well-informed and involved with the progress of marketing and enquiries. I can't give enough praise for the outstanding service that was provided. this agent Real Estate's boutique style of selling really worked for us. It was professional but personal at the same time. Nicole, it was such a pleasure to work with an honest, professional and truly lovely person. I would like to mention that it was also a pleasure to deal with the girls in the office. Dean and I have already started promoting this agent Real Estate to our fellow friends in Melbourne. Thanks again to all and we will pull out the champagne on settlement date. - Dean and Toni
My wife, Cheryl and I wanted to thank you and your team for a job well done in the selling property in Essendon. When we looked around, we chose this agent Real Estate for a number of quite simple reasons, these include the following. We wanted a small boutique agent that would give us the level of support, service and options available a larger agency couldn't provide. We wanted the agent to listen to us and what it was that concerned us, as well as assist us in finding alternative solutions. We wanted an agency to think strategically and offer tactical opportunities that were designed to get a positive result. Finally, we wanted an agency that we felt we could trust and look after our best interests when selling our home. These were and still are the reasons why we chose this agent Real Estate and why we would recommend to anyone the levels of service, support and integrity on offer through the agency. Thanks again and as always well done on achieving such a great result. - Leigh
From the get go, I was told by my boss that I wont find a more honest real estate agent than this agent and my boss is a man that has the highest standards, in fact at times quite impossible. He was right. this agent is not your stereotypical real estate agent and his manner filters through to his team. I found my experience quite painless which helped ease the stress of selling and buying. There is really a lot I can say about my experience with this agent Real Estate. I was never pushed into doing things I didn't want to do e.g. I didn't want to re-stump, paint and lots of other things that would probably help to sell my house, I really didn't want to renovate which is why I wanted to sell, let someone else do it. I appreciated not having pressure put on me. I realized it would be a tough job to sell as is but we did and I was happy with the result even though it wasn't the best market to sell in. All my dealings whether it be by phone or if I called in, I was greeting with the friendliest and most helpful team. I felt like I was dealing with friends not a business. Also, being invited to the movies weeks after the sale and purchase shows good after sales service. Thanks again Clare for everything you and the team did for me. - Lisa
I cannot express in words how pleased l am with your team. You have made the process of selling our family home a stress-free experience. Your never ending ability to always please me has been felt along the entire journey and your industry knowledge is outstanding. I am forever grateful. I stand firm in that, I chose one of the best real estate agencies that Essendon and District has to offer. Your boutique style approach to sales made me feel special and the way you marketed my home was first class, you were able to draw an overwhelming amount of genuine interest thus obtaining the best price possible. It was obvious throughout the sales process that people trust and value your opinion as I do. Nicole, l can't thank you enough with putting up with some of my more difficult moments, especially when l was overseas and oblivious as to what was happening and making myself not easily available. You were a real trooper and soldiered on to achieve a great result. this agent thanks for our regular meetings. You always made me feel that it was smooth-sailing. You answered all my questions patiently and took proactive measures to deal with any situation that would arise. Impressive, friendly, honest, understanding knowledgeable and humble sums up the this agent team. Great job all. - Rita
We would like to thank you and all your colleagues at this agent for your assistance in selling our house. Your professionalism, ready availability and feedback were all greatly appreciated. Your advice regarding presentation of the house and suggestions regarding others who could assist us were also valuable. The most important attributes for us however were your honesty in assessing our house's potential and your ability to obtain what we regard as a very good price in a market that is uncertain. We expected the sale period to be very stressful but in the main that wasn't the case and we must thank you in large measure for that. - Peter and Bronwen
This is just a short note to thank you all for the professional manner in which you sold our house. As you are well aware, selling a house is a big step in most people's lives especially when it has been home for the past twenty five years. For us, we felt we were in very capable hands from the very first day. Your initial visit was informative and the advice offered regarding preparing a house for sale was realistic and much appreciated. It was obvious you worked as an effective team and this was particularly evident on the day of the auction. Nicole, we really appreciated the number of phone calls you made to us to update on how each open house went. You knew the buyers and their interests. All our phone calls were answered promptly and we were never made to feel we were wasting your time. We feel you were realistic, presenting all scenarios and offering possibilities along the way. The idea of standing outside on auction day was fantastic even if it was a little nerve-wracking. We were so pleased to have been part of action and sharing it with friends and family. We are delighted, than an experience such as selling our house, which could have become a very stressful event, was managed by your team in such an efficient manner. Our sincere thanks to each of you and we would be happy to recommend your services to our family and friends. What else can we say but boutique is better. - Peter and Cathy
