Amazing Agent - I decided to sell my 5 acre property only because of the death of my Husband in late December. From the moment I contacted Anthony Manton I found he & his Colleagues were professional, courteous & very helpful. The advertising of my property was just amazing & actually sold after the first viewing. I wish him every success for the future.

Brendan - 4 Crosby Court, Rosetta
Great result - The second time my wife and I have sold with Ant and Simon and once again it was an absolute pleasure. We were delighted with the result we achieved and the fact we didn't even get to market is a true indication of the depth of Ray White's database. Highly recommend.
Jed & Kim - 2/24 Clarence Street, Bellerive
Love these guys - We'd been looking for a new home in Tranmere over a number of years now - we were pretty selective and were in no hurry, so had the chance to wait for just the right home to finally enter the market. After registering the various parameters of what we were seeking with Ant's database for property alerts, we felt comfortable that if he listed anything along the lines of our dream home, we'd get a timely heads-up. And that's exactly the way it rolled! We gained a 'sneak peek' alert over a fortnight before it ended up in the press and were able to take a few considered moments to think it over carefully, speak to the bank and feel comfortable in making a strong offer in an endeavour to score it as ours before the rest of the market knew it was even available. Ant and his team worked with us in a highly professional way in gaining a timely finalisation of the contract - now we just can't wait for settlement and to move into our fabulous new home, at last!!!!
Heather - 700 Oceana Drive, Tranmere
Ant, Simon and team were great to deal with - Team at Rapid Response were terrific, very professional and great experience. They achieved for us a very satisfying result in such a short period. Would recommend them highly.
Paul & Catherine - 700 Oceana Drive, Tranmere
Great Team - Ant, Brad and Brady have sold our house in the first week it was listed online. Although a lot of work was done prior to the listing eg; interviews, photos, etc. I interviewed 5 real estate agents prior to the sale and selected Ant and his team on their professionalism and enthusiasm and they haven't disappointed. I can recommend them to prospective sellers.
Tom & Grady - 88 Marys Hope Road, Rosetta
Professional and Responsive - Ant & Simon and their team are exceptionally professional. They respond rapidly to any request. They are happy to spend the time to assist with queries. They were knowledgeable about the market and managed our expectations well. I would highly recommend them.
Brent & Debra - 87 Augusta Road, Lenah Valley
Agent You Can Rely On - From the time we said "go" for the sale of our house Ant & his team lived up to their name of the "Rapid Response Unit". Everything happened at a fast but organised pace resulting in a quick & very acceptable sale. We were kept up to date with all details prior to the sale & also what was happening when eventually the house was offered for sale. A very efficient & professional team.
Phil & Sue - 99 Elinga Street, Howrah
Excellent hard working Agent. One of the best!! - Ant is machine! One of the hardest working agents there is. Any Vendor would be lucky to have Ant as their Agent. Your house would be guaranteed to sell!!
Justin - 13 Bilinga Street, Mornington
Great agent - We have recently bought from ray white and found Ant Manton to be a very straight forward person to deal with during the negotiations.
Broderick - 68 Bastick Street, Rosny
Sold 100K over all other agents estimates - Ant's estimate of the value of our property was circa 100K above other agents' estimates. And he got the price he said he would. We sold out property with a minimum of fuss for a great price. We live in Sydney and didn't have to do much at all. We would recommend Ant to anyone selling in Hobart - there's a reason he's number 1.
Sally & Luke - 342 Liverpool Street, West Hobart
Ant & his team got us a great price! - Right from the start of the process we were confident that we had a good agent working on our behalf. We were kept in the loop every step of the way. Great marketing. In the end Ant & the team came good with a great deal. Happy.

I found him very easy to deal with and delivered on his promises. I would be happy to deal with him again.
Phil & Rachel - 342 Liverpool Street, West Hobart
A big tick of approval - Very satisfied customer. Excellent communication, very helpful and honest advice comes with my full recommendation. Ant understood the market, suburb and pricing was spot on. Three weeks from appraisal to sale. And his appraisal and commission structure was far in advance of other agents who looked.
Chris & Yvette - 9 Third Avenue, Midway Point
Easy to deal with - Was impressed with easy going nature of staff, Brad was very helpful throughout the process and got a good insurance deal through Ray White concierge, would highly recommend Ray White Real Estate!
Annette - 112/571 Nelson Road, Mount Nelson
A job well done - Ant and the Rapid Response Unit helped us find a great family home in a difficult market for buyers. They kept us informed of new properties that actually met our criteria, rather than just anything they happened to have on their books. When it came to buying the property they were extremely helpful with arranging viewings at times that suited us and helped us with the paperwork without being pushy.
Phil & Jane - 50 View Street, Sandy Bay

Moria & Nick - 27 Weemala Court, Mount Nelson
From the first time I met Ant I knew he was the man for the job. Hi enthusiasm and professionalism are second to none. I just forgot everything and left everything to Ant. We ended up with 2 fantastic offers and have just unconditionally sold. Ant comes highly recommended.
Mike - 111 Lewisham Scenic Drive, Lewisham
We sold and purchased through Ant, I found him to be honest at all times. He worked towards the best deal for both parties when selling and purchasing our houses. I wish mosh Hobart agents subscribed to this approach..
Callum - 7 Pulchella Drive, Tolmans Hill
Brilliant Ant and his team are fantastic all round - We can't recommend Ant and his team...Simon, Barney and Brad highly enough. They we so professional, knowledgeable and considerate from our first meeting. They kept us up-to-date at all times, sharing their expertise and advice throughout the sale. They were extremely considerate of our requirements and that made the entire process seamless for us and our family. They clearly worked themselves extremely hard as we were thrilled with the result and it was such a quick sale. Although the sale is finalised we are still receiving expert advice and such kindness. They always made us laugh and we never felt any pressure, a very calm and relaxed sale. Ant the Champ is an understatement.
Martin and Kate - 50 View Street, Sandy Bay
Excellent Agent - Pleasure to deal with, definitely at the top of the game.

Jenny & Umit - 334 Davey Street, South Hobart
Top marks from a purchaser - Ant and the team were great, very friendly and helpful, good follow up but not overly pushy. They listened, provided good advice, were realistic about price and worked hard to clinch the deal. Ant also reduced their commission in order to sweeten my offer for the vendor. I couldn't be happier.
Lisa - 58 McKinly Street, Midway Point
Ant is a great Agent - I'm not a property flipper, but I have bought and sold 5 places over the years. Agents come in all shapes and sizes, and out of the 10 I've dealt with - 5 to buy and 5 to sell Ant is a standout. Personable, communicative, honest and hard working. I would not use some of the people I've dealt with in the past again. I would use Ant.
James - 334 Davey Street, South Hobart
Ant was genuine and professional, unlike a few of the other agents we dealt with while trying to find a home to purchase.
Carrie - 4 Murphy Court, Granton
Ant assisted us to implement a strategy quickly and effectively - providing strong support & advice - Ant helped us to prepare a property for sale, market it and sell it with remarkable speed and efficiency.

Alind - 306/156 Bathurst Street, Hobart
Ant was great and explained everything very thoroughly as I had never bought a house before. - I don't really have anything more to say. The house wasn't on the market very long at all and was perfect for me and it basically sold itself.
Amanda - 21 Weemala Court, Mount Nelson
Fantastic experience! - Ant was nothing but helpful and prompt with all communication. Nothing was to much trouble. All round fantastic experience.

Simon and Kate - 7 Denmark Close, Taroona
Great Agent - excellent result and we were stoked with the outcome.

The RAPID RESPONSE UNIT is highly recommended - Hi, We had the recent pleasure of making a great choice to engage Ant, Simon, Barney and team to sell our home. We wanted someone who was passionate, enthusiastic and experienced in the industry to sell our home and achieve a great result for us. What we received was a whole team who actively listened and worked with us to achieve the result in a highly professional manner using a fresh engaging approach. Their high quality processes and use of technology, contact database and social media was exceptional and the team really excels in terms of professionalism, level of service and responsiveness to communications. A Rapid Response Unit is what you are promised and a rapid, responsive, reliable and passionate approach by a whole team is definitely what we received. In fact we recommended Ray White to other family members also selling a property at the same time and they had exactly the same positive experience as we enjoyed. Sincere thanks to Ant, Simon, Barney, Sam and Andrew - we were really impressed with your efforts and rapid result. We highly recommend the Rapid Response Unit at Ray White Hobart to anyone selling or buying property!
Allan and Nina - 356 Tranmere Road, Tranmere
THE BEST AGENCY IN HOBART! RAPID RESPONSE TEAM 😁- Rapid Response at our first encounter: My first encounter with Ant was I emailed him on a Sunday evening 24 January 2017 at 10:20pm requesting for he and Simon to undertake a valuation of my property. I was pleasantly surprised that he responded with an immediate phone call at 10:25pm!. My husband responded: "He takes this rapid response thing pretty seriously!" Ant valued my property the following day and I signed up with him and Simon straight away! Both gentleman arrived at our property on time, presented exceptionally well and their delivery of what they could offer us as sellers was a professional and prompt service, keeping us informed every step of the way. JACKPOT! This was exactly what we were after. My husband and I knew at this point, that we would be very satisfied with what Ant and Simon delivered! I was very impressed with the nous that Ant displays. I found Ant and Simon's plans for promoting and marketing our property savvy and appealing. My husband and I also thought that the Rapid Response Team at Ray White were up to date with their knowledge and market predictors on valuing property and promotion in a multitude of websites. The video shoot took place on 6 February 2017, and hit the internet on 8 February 2017. 9 Feb: Barney contacted me to advise an inspection was scheduled that evening. 6:33pm: Ant phoned me and advised he had taken two couples through that were both very interested in the property. 10 Feb: Barney contacted to advise the buyers from yesterday were keen to look again at the property at Midday. 2:52pm: Ant phoned me and advised he had an offer on the property and a signed contract a day before the scheduled open home. 28 Feb: Sold sign went up on the property and the website. –Anyone for Drinks??? The rapid response unit far exceeded our expectations in every aspect of our interaction with them. I cannot speak highly enough for Ant, Simon, Barney and the rest of the team they truly are amazing!
Jodi - 4 Murphy Court, Granton
Well Done Team - Ant and the Rapid Response Unit did a great job of selling our house. Ant was professional and very responsive. He offered sound advice when asked, and helped us to set a realistic price - which we reached in less than two weeks. The photography and video were very well executed, as was all of the marketing. Hopefully Ant will be able to find us our next home too!
Phil and Jane - 51 Fitzroy Crescent, Dynnyrne
Outstanding service, nothing a problem , great team to support him for booking, payment etc. I cant speak highly enough!
Brad and Jane - 11 Norla Road, Tranmere
Very Impressed! - We were delighted to work and negotiate with Ant on the purchase of our new family home. His communication skills were excellent as was his knowledge of the property, some of questions he did not know the answer too and was able to find out for us within minutes. Thank you Ant, it was a pleasure! Lisa and Jon
Lisa and John - 11 Norla Road, Tranmere
Straight forward, fast and efficient. Sold our unit before marketing for the price we wanted. And advertised it for the price we wanted not 50,000 less or anything dodgy like that.
Naomi - 2/84 Malunna Road, Lindisfarne
Ant Manton The Ultimate Professional - Ant has sold two properties for me over the past couple of years. He is a dynamic leader whose professionalism, transparency and outstanding communication skills are second to none. The sales were different - one a family home, the other an investment property. Ant gave his all to obtain the best price for both. I have, and will continue to recommend Ant to anyone I know who is selling or buying a home..... and no, he did not pay me to say this! LIZ
Liz and Enrico - 16 Ellerslie Road, Battery Point
Great experience! - We had a fantastic sales experience with Simon when purchasing our holiday home. He was extremely approachable and helpful, easy to communicate with and facilitated smooth and successful sale. We appreciate his efforts in helping us get this amazing property, and we highly recommend him for anyone looking for a credible agent
Sam and Caroline - 10 East Shelly Road, Orford
Positive Experience - We chose Ant and Simon to sell our family home based on word of mouth, and the number of properties they've recently sold in our area. Our past experience with Real Estate Agents hasn't been great, so when these guys actually did what they said they would do, and communicated when they said they would, we were wrapped. Their communication has been fantastic, they made everything seem easy, and when they presented us with an offer only 1 week after going to market, we were pretty impressed to say the least! This team are different. They are left of centre. They don't pretend to be something they're not. We found their sincerity and compassion humbling, and their humour absolutely refreshing. That's why they worked for us and we'd recommend them in a heartbeat!
Jarrod and Melanie - 20 Weemala Court, Mount Nelson
Thanks again Ant! - I have now sold 2 houses through Ant. Both sales experiences were really positive. Communication with Ant and his team was always clear. Sales prices were above average. He always answered his phone promptly and has a lovely sense of humour. I would not hesitate to recommend his services.
Helen - 8/4A Colville Street, Battery Point
Simply the Best - Ant Manton and his team are the most professional, dedicated and attentive team that I have had the pleasure of dealing with. They delivered on every promise they made and absolutely exceeded my expectations. They made the sale of my house effortless (and dare I say it) even enjoyable! I would never use anyone else! Thank you so much
Kon - 249 New Town Road, New Town
RAPID RESPONSE TEAM REVIEW - 1 Meeting with Simon from the team got off to a good start. We were both on time! Simon is friendly and easy to talk to. 2 Offer was made and positive answer was RAPID. 3 all phone calls to ANT are answered or promptly returned. Cant ask for more than that! Smooth sailing. All the best. Terry Lesser
Terry - 41 Fitzroy Crescent, Dynnyrne
Highly recommended - Ant and his team from the Rapid Response Unit were an absolute pleasure to deal with. They sold our house in an amazingly short timeframe, without compromising on price or professionalism. From the lighthearted, personable approach, to the incredible marketing materials, we would highly recommend the RRU to anyone considering selling. Thank you for an amazing result that surpassed our expectations!
Kimberley - 4 Erica Place, Oakdowns
Hi Ant, Well our journey has ended, the block has sold, and we can now get on with our life. I wanted to take the time to send you this email to thank you for selling our block, and I know you had to work very hard for your commission. When we embarked on this journey with you, we did so with a pretty good gut feeling that you would do the job for us and you did. Thank you for your honesty and integrity all the way through, and for your feedback and counselling when needed. For all these reasons, and even though we wondered if our block would ever sell, we did not contemplate listing with other agents. You said to me that you appreciated our loyalty, well, that goes both ways, so thank you Ant. We wish you well both personally and with your business, and when we finally retire to Hobart (area), you will be first on the list when we buy down there again. Take care, and I hope we get the opportunity again soon just to catch up with you to say "Hi Ant, what's been happening". So, to phrase it as you would put it...."onwards and upwards".
Lorna and Nick - 18 Gentile Court, Rosetta
I recommend ant - It was an easy experience selling our house through Ant really professional and easy to get along with. When I sell a house again I will be calling Antman.
Reece and Emesha - 193 Clarence Street, Howrah
Sale of 41 Fitzroy Crescent - Ant, Simon and the team at Ray White did a fantastic job of selling my property in a very short time for a great price. I chose Ant and the Rapid Response team primarily as they demonstrated the value of a close knit team-oriented approach to selling. This was very apparent during the selling phase when I spoke to numerous people from Ray White who all knew what was going on and worked together to provide a great result and a very stress-free experience. Well done everyone!
Brendon - 41 Fitzroy Crescent, Dynnyrne
A great team! - Ant and Simon were great to deal with! As the purchasers, we got hooked on the property as soon as we saw the video that was shot to market the home. This is a credit to the great work that Sam Curtain did to entice us to have a look! The whole Ray White team were genuine and kept us updated in the whole process. Thank you!
Ashley and Robert - 29 Marlborough Street, Sandy Bay
Rapid Response Team - The Rapid Response Team is aptly named. From Barney in the office to Sam the photographer to Simon (aka Pablo) and of course, Ant Manton. It was a team effort from the start with a touch of lightheartedness all while being extremely professional. Needless to say, it all happened very RAPIDLY!
Pam and Shelby - 29 Marlborough Street, Sandy Bay
161 Tolosa St - Rapid response team, how true is that? Well the name suits you well Ant, Simon and Barney. Could not believe the short time it took to sell and the offers received your professionalism is exemplary. Thank you so much for your effort on our behalf. Margaret and Barry Cornish. Ant: Go Pies
Margaret and Barry - 161 Tolosa Street, Glenorchy
Battery Point Sale - Ant acted for a vendor in the sale of a house in Hobart. We were the buyers. As buyers we found Ant to be extremely professional, hard working, communicative and engaging, but equally his priority was his vendor, whose interests were always his absolute priority, and he negotiated hard for them; we respected that. He was prepared to work all hours to help get the deal done. Having dealt with many agents in Hobart recently, in our view Ant was in a league of his own and reminded us of some of the premium agents in the Melbourne market that we have recently sold in. Highly recommended and we would certainly use him for a sale down the track.
Sarah and Alastair - 12 Francis Street, Battery Point
Rapid in all areas! - The rapid response team were always rapid in everything that they did. Unfortunately our first offer/contract fell through but Ant and the team were onto things the moment the contract fell through and within a week we had another offer on the table. Communication by the team was always on point and I would recommend to others to use the Rapid Response Unit. Thank you for selling our home!
Kimberley and Richard - 5 Crete Place, Oakdowns
Very Pleasant - Ant It is very easy to deal with, and tried hard to get the price I wanted.
Peta - 742 Oceana Drive, Tranmere
Great work Rapid action Team - Ant and the team were great in keeping me up to date on what was going on, far better than other agents i had used in the past. I got a fair price, when you take into account the property and market, and i would recommend them to anyone.
Dean - 24 Bayview Road, Lauderdale
They are the Rapid Response Unit - Ant Manton and his team were very responsive and communicated well. I received weekly updates on activities regarding the sale of my unit and a follow up call after viewings. I would recommend Ant and his team.
Maureen - 2/2 Hildergard Court, Brighton
Gold Stars for Ant Manton and his Rapid Response Unit - I had two residential properties to sell. I had previously had one on the market in the previous year and although it had been presented beautifully, and the feedback had been good, I didn't receive one offer. Ant was recommended to me by someone who had worked with him previously and held his marketing skills in high regard. I gave Ant the details of my first property and within 24 hours he got back to me with an offer which had come through his extensive database of interstate buyers. The second property had been my home for eight years and it was an emotionally difficult decision to sell. Ant has been respectful and understanding and although my price expectation was quite high, he didn't promise the earth. He tried to manage my expectations gently, however ironically in the end, he and his team negotiated almost the exact price I was aiming for. I know the market is getting better locally, but Ant and his team are savvy, smart and super charged. I don't think Ant sleeps at all - he clearly gets a buzz out of his job, he's a natural salesman and he acts fast to get the advantage. Ant needs to clone himself and expand to the mainland! Five Gold Stars!
Karena - 175 Risdon Road, Lutana
Quick Response Team - Felt I was dealing with a good buddy, would recommend to family and friends .
Dale and Megan - 3/2 Nelis Court, Lutana

Fantastic experience with Simon and Ant - The Rapid Response Unit. Great communication, our property sold within two weeks for an amount well above expectations.

Phil - 3/25A High Street, Bellerive
The whole team with Ant are just great at what they do. Ant in particular was superb, from making us feel good about selling our home of 20yrs, to negotiating our sale (faster than ever expected), to all the advice, he was there all the way. With Simon and Barney as wing men , even the girls in the office, they made the whole process easy. Thank you so, so much .
Francis - 128 Pawleena Road, Sorell
Ant was a very competent and honest negotiator. I have no hesitation in reccomending him whether you are buying or selling.
Susan - 16 Birch Street, Kingston
Both Ant Manton and Simon Purdon were very pleasant to deal with when purchasing a property in Rosny. They did not attempt any pushy sales tactics and in fact, their open and genuine approach assisted me in deciding to purchase the property and make an offer prior to auction. Ant went a step further continuing to negotiate between buyer and seller when he was in hospital to finalise the deal! Simon went out of his way to accommodate contractors needing access to prepare quotations and providing contacts for conveyances and the like. Both Simon and Ant could be reached whenever needed and returned calls and emails. The followup team, Barney, was very helpful assisting with Landlord insurance and other things. The daunting process of buying a property was made easier and this was appreciated. One more thing: I liked the Rapid Response Unit approach - was more fun than business as usual and they produced a good video!
Mark - 54 Leura Street, Rosny
The whole team @ Ray White Southern Tas have been a pleasure to deal with and we would Highly recommend anyone thinking of selling to give Ant Manton and Simon Purdon a call.
Paul and Kylie - 24 Amelia Court, Sorell
Ant and the RRU were proposed a challenge...sell our home before the baby arrives in 4 weeks! I made contact with the RRU as a result of a recommendation and also demonstrated results with sales of friends homes...and...we had just bought a house and had to sell ours...all before the baby arrives. Ant and his team flew into action the following morning, taking a sneak peak photo to hit social media and there database. Then the tsunami started to build. Numerous groups came through within a couple days, interest building constantly, then when the add officially hit the market, the tsunami hit. We had a diary full of inspections and the open home caused traffic chaos in the street. The house was under contract and with an above expected offer within a week. Our baby has arrived happy and healthy, and although we did not call him Ant or Pablo, we are eternally grateful for the service from the RRU. Attention to detail, communications, updates, and good old empathy and compassion for our situation is why I would never list with any other agent again. The RRU have worked and work so very hard. They are a family helping people/families like us. Many thanks RRU. Regards
Liz - 15 Clift Street, Mount Stuart

Debbie and Verona - 239 Tinderbox Road, Tinderbox
I found Ant and Simon very professional, but friendly and approachable, not pushy at all, and overall excellent weekly communication report of all enquiries regarding my property. Excellent photos were taken of my property which I believe enhanced the overall number of enquiries regarding this property. No hesitation if I am interested in property in Tassie again, it will be to Ant Manton and Team I would seek to use again.
Kim - 213/156 Bathurst Street, Hobart
I have been very impressed by Ant Manton and his team. They have been accessible, communicative, helpful and have offered a service over and above that which I expected. Furthermore they assisted me with matters pertaining to the house post settlement which blew me away. I have brought and sold a lot of houses in Australia and the UK and they rate right at the top. Thank you guys - you were great.
Josie - Lot 1/184-186 Campbell Street, North Hobart
We went with another agent in June and only had two inspections by August! We switched to Ant, the listing went out late Wednesday and by that Saturday we had two offers and accepted one of them. Super service, kept us informed, creative video and all in all, very professional approach to selling our house.
Ernest and Martina - 14 Anulka Street, Howrah
We are extremely impressed with Ant and his team. They have achieved the sale due to being proactive, transparent & credible. The team were always open & honest. Our expectations were exceeded.

Ant stayed beyond open home time to get hubby through, and was always accessible through the negotiation process. We successfully purchased our home :)
Katie and Sante - 20 Elmsleigh Road, Derwent Park
Ant and his team remained positive and encouraging through out the sale process. However more importantly Ant's natural friendly personality gave us confidence that would normally be associated with a number of year of friendship.
Ross and Denise - 8 Kristen Court, Claremont
From the beginning of our experience Ant, Simon and the Ray White Southern Tas. team have been an absolute pleasure to work with. Our home was under offer within days of being advertised and we were kept up to date with all relevant information moving forward. Their professionalism, enthusiasm, knowledge and hard work (not forgetting their dapper attire and fabulous sense of humour!) got the job done. We haven't had any hesitation recommending them already and will continue to do so moving forward. Thank you so much for making this a great experience for us.
Bec and Dallas - 3 Aherne Place, Granton
When I sought to purchase my new investment property in early 2016, Ant and his team were a professional and astute team to deal with right from the outset. Their communicable and helpful approach was not only refreshing, but it also ensured that all of my questions about the property and the process were quickly and accurately answered.
Ben - 13/43 Toorak Avenue, Mount Stuart
Ant has excellent communication skills which set him apart from other agents we interviewed. Additionally he maintain outstanding contact with the client in a way which is fully supportive, in no way intrusive and his hard copy market analysis that he provided was exceptional. Also whatever he said he was prepared to put in on paper, no false promises, just high quality information and exceptional service.
Rod & Guilia - 21 Weemala Court, Mount Nelson
Simon and the "Rapid Response Unit" put my mind at ease from the first meeting i had in relation to the sale of my property.
Seton - 27 Grahams Road, Mount Rumney
Ant is a genuinely friendly, professional, amicable, and capable real estate agent who knows his stuff.

No hesitation in recommending this Ray White office to anyone.

Lyn - 65 Bastick Street, Rosny
Very professional service, there follow up and communication was exceptional. Sold my house in less than a month and got the money I was chasing. Easy to deal with and always recommend them to family and friends.
Kristy S - 28 Pillinger Street, Dynnyrne
Over the years, we have dealt with a few different real estates of which not one has been impressive, but we found your company to be more up with the times and much more interaction with the vendor.
John & Debbie - 21 High Street, Bellerive
Ant Manton and his Sales agent Simon Purdo provided exceptional customer service within and outside of their Senior Sales Title. Ant is a sales agent who wants the best result for the Vendor and he listens and is patient with what I wanted and understood why I turned down first offer in 2016. My property went on the market late 2015 and I was going through a transition time with break lease and he always asked what I required from him to assist with this transition and reassured me that he would do the worrying for me if the property sold with new renters and we collaborated as a team and solved these problems together. His Sales agent Simon Purdon took up the viewings when Ant was unavailable and showed me that communication was top priority with Ray White and their clients. It is my honest belief that commitment, compromise, communication, transparency and integrity are best practice with Ant Manton and his team. There was not one missed call that was not returned within 8 hours. This made living in Melbourne whilst all this was happening very easy and low levels of stress. Ant also became a friend and I felt trusting enough to open up to him about my concerns and this in my opinion is why we made the sale at a settlement that I am very pleased with and in less than 6 months. Thank you Ash in Melbourne Frankston office for recommending Ant in 2015. Thank you Ant and Simon.

For Sale ... Sold ... GO ! Vendor Review - Recommended by GerrySandy 13 March 2016 Not a whimper but a BANG ... and it was SOLD. Great character, great service, great price ... what more could we ask for ?

A Great Team! Buyer Review 08 March 2016 I found Ant and the team thoroughly professional and prompt in all dealings. A great team to deal with!
Mackenzie & Adam - 572 Kalang Avenue, Glenorchy
Tasy Expert Vendor Review - Recommended by SamKate933 04 March 2016 Ant was an integral part of our recent property sale. We had initially gone with another agent who managed our property for 13 years but lacked the charisma and drive demonstrated by Ant to successfully market and sell our property. We highly recommend Ant and Ray White for anyone in the market to buy or sell a property in Tasmania.
Sam & Kate Iliades - 378 Murray Street, North Hobart
Simply the BEST!!! Vendor Review - Recommended by Sallie2616 03 March 2016 I can't recommend Ant more highly. Not living in the same state as the home being sold is difficult to say the least BUT Ant took control and made the whole process totally worry free. The home was sold within days of being listed due to the fact that Ant knows how to market a property to its full potential. I have recommended Ant before and I have no hesitation in do so again and again and again. #rapidresponse

Deciding on an Agent is not as easy as you think! Everyone has a different price, suggestion and take on the market. What we loved about dealing with Ant was his openess to discuss and make the process clear and straight down the line. We knew exactly what was happening at all times which made selling our home as easy as it could be. Thanks Ant and the Ray White team, it was a pleasure dealing with you all.
