When Kathryn and Peter contemplated selling the family home, Kathryn was a bit apprehensive. She was not only reluctant to let go of their cherished home, she worried it would be a slow and stressful experience. However, both she and husband Peter came across Open Agent and agreed it was a wise option. Here, they tell us how things fell into place for them:

Kathryn says: “When we decided to sell, we really didn’t know where to go, so we contacted Open Agent.  They explained what they did, which was looking for agents in our area who actually had the best percentage of selling houses.  They know all that information, so that’s why we thought we’d go with them. They’d already done that research – we didn’t have to do any of that.”

Peter elaborates: “I saw an Open Agent ad on the TV, I believe. I went online, I filled in a form, and got a call from Jamie at Open Agent. We had a conversation and it was very friendly. He knew what we wanted.”

Kathryn adds: “They got back to us with a couple of agents that actually sounded really good who had the high performance in the area, and we decided then that was the way to go.  Open Agent took out all the stress, all the hassle and all the running around for us. So, we chose an agent and that was it.”

Peter tells us more about how the agent Open Agent recommended lived up to his top sales record and made things happen fast:

“Within a week, he sold our property. We couldn’t believe it. By choosing the right agent, we sold our house for over $60,000 more than we expected, and we were very happy with that figure. We were amazed that it sold so quick!”

Kathryn continues: “Well, it went on the Saturday and it was sold by the Monday, so it wasn’t even a week. It was a couple of days.”

Peter sums it up nicely: “We had over 30 couples come through and most of them wanted to buy the property. In fact, the price inflated during the day. It was like a gazumption. It was a bit of a boom, but our property just took off, thanks to Open Agent.”

“If I had to sell again, I’d contact Open Agent. They were very friendly and they were very thorough.  Their service is out of this world.”
