A Good Feel for the MarketAs we are now only two weeks off settlement – we want to thank Gordon Perry for his advice and assistance in selling our house.
We selected him as the agent to sell our house because he explained the different methods we could use to advertise and sell the house, and he had a good feel for the market in our suburb. He provided realistic advice on what the property was worth and had an open and friendly manner which we thought would work well selling our home. The fact that we had an offer within the first week and exchanged quickly meant that the selling strategies that we worked out together worked well.
Thank you Gordon for responding well to our suggestions and ideas on how to market our house and making this a positive and stress free experience for us.
Attitude & Customer Service were the key!When we decided to market out property in Melba we initially approached a number of real estate agents. To be quite honest, we were taken in by the high profile of these agencies but were quite disappointed with their attitude to customer service once we spoke with them.
Gordon Perry was a familiar face long before we started to search for an agent. He had left calling cards on our door previously and actually won our contract by 'walking the beat' in Melba to find potential houses to market.
Gordon's initial appraisal of our property and his preparation of a marketing plan were impressive. It was through his personal approach and his enthusiasm and dedication that convinced us to use Elders Belconnen as our marketing agency.
At all times we felt Gordon answered our questions honestly and he could find a positive angle to any situation. It also impressed us that he was a down to earth person and that he drove a modest car. It suggested to us where his focus was and it was not on flashy first impressions. His suggestions for presenting and marketing our property were practical and very useful.
He was responsive in meeting our needs and was almost always available when we needed him. When he was not available he returned our calls as soon as he was able.
At this point we must also praise the assistance given to us by Suzi Wells and her contribution to the successful marketing of our property. She took the time to familiarise herself with our house and the locality so that she could advertise it in the best possible light. Her preparation of the Canberra Times advertisements and the Allhomes site were exceptional and we believe, contributed to a very quick sale.
We are delighted that our property sold in just over three weeks after being listed, and for a price that was better than we had originally anticipated.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Gordon Perry and Elders Belconnen to anyone considering marketing their property.
Friendly, Approachable & Enthusiastic!We engaged Mick Barlow to sell our property in Page on the recommendation of
one of his former clients. We had an exceptionally positive experience in all of our dealings with Mick. We found him to be friendly, approachable, enthusiastic and very professional. Mick provided us with clear and accurate advice on options for the approach for our sale that resulted in us recieving a better than expected price in a very quick timeframe. We would not hesitate in recommending Mick to anyone onsidering a property sale.
Outstanding Service!When we bought our first home through Mick, he was very professional and
helped us with all the questions we had at the time. We were so impressed with his level of service that when we decided to sell a couple of years later, Mick was our first choice as agent. He did not let us down. His high level of professionalism, enthusiasm and respect for both parties allowed us to find a suitable buyer within a very short period of time. We would strongly recommend Mick to anyone looking to sell their home.
Communication is the key!While our home was on the market we had several Open Days which were handled sensitively and efficiently. Di’s courteous yet professional manner was appreciated. Communication between Di and ourselves was always easy and we were able to reach a decision quickly acting on her advice and experience.
Well Executed Auction!I want to thank Penny Hyde & Troy Reddick very much for a well executed auction process on my home at 48 Blackman Crescent. I was very pleased with the auction price reached, being well above the reserve price, and felt it mirrored a very well executed advertisement strategy and a high standard of professionalism in their management of the auction and sale. I appreciated the thorough explanation of what to expect at each step in the process, and their openness and kindness throughout. I felt the property was in good hands and that any potential purchaser would feel that they also were getting a fair and honest deal.
Friendly Informative and Realistic!Penny Hyde recently sold our daughter's property in Wybalena Grove. We were managing the sale because she is currently living in Norway. We were most impressed with Penny from the time of the first meeting to discuss the property sale. She was friendly, informative and realistic about what was achievable. She was also very active in marketing the property and following through on prospective buyers. Importantly she kept us fully informed at all times. This was not easy because we were in the United States for much of the time the property was on the market. We would have no hesitation in recommending Penny as an agent for selling or buying property.
Concern for her Client's Interests!Perhaps the most striking features were Di Hawke's warm and friendly nature, her genuine concern for her client’s personal interests and the sense of honesty and professionalism which she conveyed. It was obvious that she has a masterly grip of the key real estate issues and she took great pains to ensure that she was fully informed about recent local transactions.
Comprehensive Market Knowledge!Marge Hall's knowledge of the market was current and was evident from the research provided in her comprehensive appraisals. I rate her negotiation skills highly and she delivered on her promises.
Exceptional Service!From the time of requesting an appraisal, until the actual settlement date, Marge Hall and all members of staff were exceptional in all areas relating to my property affairs.
Sensitive to His Client’s Needs!We would like to thank Troy Reddick who acted as our agent for his professional
and personal assistance through what was a very smooth and hassle free sale. Troy was very helpful right from the start working together with us in setting a realistic price for the property and he also offered some good suggestions on what pre-sale maintenance preparations were necessary to best present the property. The whole process was quite painless and we really felt we worked very well with him. We have used Troy in other sales and a purchase and we can say that he is very sensitive to his client’s. He has a good personality and great people skills.
Nothing is Too Much Trouble!As our agent in several real estate transactions, Troy Reddick has guided us with his knowledge and expertise and assisted us always with a courteous and respectful manner that has seen a successful outcome for us. With his patient and calm manner me makes nothing seem like too much trouble. His correspondence is always informative and we will continue to recommend him to anyone looking for an outstanding real estate agent.
