"We think it was pretty amazing too – in fact I think we are all still feeling a bit shell shocked! We were very happy indeed and appreciate your efforts. We all felt that you did a great job of promoting the property and managing the interest in it in a pleasant and professional manner. Not to mention the challenges of having to manage a vendor party of 3! And wow, what a result! Mum and Dad would so pleased!"
"Thank you so much for the wonderful result! In particular I want to thank you and the team for the thoughtful and considered manner you went about the inspections. You were all mindful of the importance of keeping our client services running smoothly and respecting the need for confidentiality around the counselling areas. All the staff here really noticed and appreciated the extra care you all took."
"Thank you for selling Kate's and my home last week. We are thrilled with the outcome. It is often said that a real estate agent should sell their own house every few years to remember the stressful experience that buyers and sellers go through, but you made it so easy for both of us. The three of you worked so well as a team, and it was great to know the whole office was working with you to ensure we got the best possible price on the day. Your energy and enthusiasm, along with the professional way you communicated with both us and the prospective buyers was a case study in how things should happen. I know your team has had a outstanding year and produced some brilliant results. But more than the results themselves, I am proud of the way you have achieved them - you are great ambassadors for our business and our industry."
"Once again Sharon & I wanted to thank you for the great effort in relation to selling our house. You have managed the process professionally, have been always pleasant to deal with and achieved a successful outcome. It certainly hasn't been the easiest market and the success that you achieved is testimony to your ability and approach. I would be pleased to provide references to any prospective client."
"Thanks so much to you both - we couldn't be happier with the campaign and of course that amazing result! More than anything, it is a lovely feeling to know we did mum and dad's house justice - Dad would have been really pleased."
"I am thrilled with the result. You both ran the campaign flawlessly and the auction last night far exceeded my expectations."
"Thank you Elliot. We are overjoyed with the house. We have been looking for such a long time we can't believe it is over. It was great that everything was sorted out yesterday. Thank you for getting us into the property, helping us reach a deal, and above all being so honest with us throughout. It was a refreshing change from our previous dealings with agents!"
