Hi Paula & Paul,
David and I want to take this opportunity to thank you both very much for guiding us through the process of selling our home, 1 Beryl Street Warners Bay, in the most professional & supportive manner.
Our previous house selling experiences have proved to be very stressful periods of time however you guys have shown us this process can be exciting and rewarding.
After selling four houses previously, we both had a healthy scepticism of the “real estate agents talk” and the promises made by individuals to get a signature on a contract however from our first meeting with you as a team, David and I felt a sense of honesty, trustworthiness and confidence that PRD, with you guys as our agents, could assist us get the best out of the sale of our home.........and you didn't disappoint!
We loved the fact that you work as a team,you compliment each other perfectly. We were impressed that you both present on all open houses and inspections as promised in our discussions which provided us with confidence that we had chosen the best agents for selling our home as you follow through with commitments you make.
We wish to thank you both for your integrity, and the fact that you both stressed on many occasions that PRD were “working for us to get the best price for our home”- this fact was very comforting during a stressful period, knowing you were “on our side”and at no time were we made to feel like we were just another vendor or that any question was too stupid to ask....... and I know I asked some and was probably a pain in the rear end on many occasion- you managed to deal with this with good humour and candour. As you know David & I don’t like BS- we like our talk straight.
Paula your warm and courteous approach to your work is wonderful, always available to provide guidance and support during some difficult decisions regarding offers and counter offers. Thank you
Paul, your planning/marketing strategy of our home for sale worked precisely as you stated on the first night we met- not sure whether that was good luck or good planning- I’d rather think it was the later
Fortunately for us all it was a quick sale and to boot....a street record. Who’d of thought $1.16 million was achievable....
Thank you both for the wonderful effort in selling our property and we will be sure to advise family and friends of the superb service PRD Lake Macquarie offer.
Lisa & David Townes.
RE: SALE OF OUR HOME – 15 WARNERS BAY ROAD, WARNERS BAY
We would both like to thank you so very much for the brilliant job you both did in the marketing and sale of our home.
We had to intended to interview a number of agents before we listed, but after speaking to both of you, we were more than comfortable listing our home for sale with you and the team at PRDnationwide Newcastle & Lake Macquarie.
We were very impressed, not only by your integrity, but also the strategy and marketing ideas that you presented to us. Your enthusiasm to ensure that we received the highest possible price, was evident throughout the whole selling process. Though there were other comparable sales in the mid $500,000’s, which we had budgeted for, you inspired us to be bold with our pricing strategy. You suggested, that if you could create competition then this would in turn, create higher offers – which is exactly what happened! We are ecstatic that you negotiated with all available buyers’ right to the end to achieve a price that was well above the market and our expectations.
We are delighted, not only with our price, but in the way you made us feel comfortable and kept us informed throughout a worry free sale and negotiation process.
We would like to express our gratitude for the excellent service you provided in the marketing and sale of your home and we would have no hesitation to recommend you to all our friends and family.
Thank you so much.
Jim Boyle & Janis Mendoza
