I am writing to you because I simply want you to know that after living in the same home in Northbridge for exactly 34 years and seeing the many changes that have taken place in the suburb, not to mention the Real Estate Agents who have come and gone during that period) I just want to place on the record that I would consider you to be the Most Professional, Intelligent and courteous Real Estate Agent I have dealt with. You are aware that I had been trying to sell my home on and off since 2008. You are also aware that I had dealings with at least Three other Local Northbridge Agents and that all three were an absolute disaster. They either over quoted on pricing, could not close a sale or were just down right incompetent. In contrast you were the only agent that gave a sensible honest appraisal of our home, You were the only agent that introduced buyers that were "targeted" and although as you know I did sell the home myself you were the only agent who treated my wife and I with due respect and didn't show contempt by trying to either take us both for fools or patronise us. We always felt comfortable with you and your attention to detail, follow up and general communication efficiency were legendary.
In conclusion I want to remind you that you are held in the highest esteem and furthermore, would be more than happy to speak on your behalf at any time."
Vendor 6 Weemala Road, Northbridge
The marketing strategy originally outlined by you worked extremely efficient. Your leadership, proactive attitude and knowledgeable expertise have obviously achieved great success for exchange of contracts within a short period of time. We are really delighted to have this speedy sale meeting our price expectation following just three times of open house.
Thanks again for all your great efforts and the whole team’s hard work! We have no hesitation in recommending McGrath and especially yourself (David Howe), to anyone planning to sell a property."
Victor & May Woo
Your knowledge of the market including your guide price was spot-on, and the marketing suggestions you made proved to be invaluable in creating a good level of interest in the property.
We particularly appreciated the non-stop communication. You provided fast follow-up and detailed feedback on all prospects, and you were always available, if we wished to discuss any matters.
We should mention also that your attention-to-detail was second to none, and nothing was ever overlooked.
We felt negotiation skills were of the utmost importance and this was an area where you particularly impressed. While maintaining honesty and integrity, we’re convinced you achieved the best price possible in this market.
It should be noted that your colleagues, Geoff and Daniel, did a great job also. Their hard work and enthusiasm at all times was critical to the success of the campaign, and we’re grateful for this.
Pauline and Graham McCredie"
Just wanted to write to thank you and your team for all that you did to sell our house. We were very happy with the price that you achieved, in what can only be called a slow market. We were very impressed with the tenacity and belief that you maintained throughout the process. You were very helpful with suggestions, and were reliable and positive at all the open house inspections. Your selling techniques always reflected the positives of our house, which we know had a number of negative aspects - not the least of which was the main road. You truly believed that someone would see the place for what it was - a wonderful home which was full of love and warmth. We have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who is looking for a hard working agent, who works for their client with integrity and great energy. When we are ready to buy a property in a few months, you will be our first point of call. Many thanks, once again."
With kindest regards,
Jenny and David Scobie
"We have been very confident and feel fortunate to have been able to have used you as our agent - not once, twice or three times - but four times in as many years with our different properties. You have demonstrated consistently fabulous communication skills, and allowed us to relax through what can be a very stressful experience. Thank you for this. You have also been highly reliable, experienced and professional. You demonstrated a variety of different strategies and approaches depending on our property and our needs with each sale. We respect your honesty and work as excellent agents, and have full confidence to recommend you as agents, which we have already done on numerous occasions."
Sarah and Chris
"At all times we felt the campaign was tracking to plan and David’s team reported immediately after every inspection, including detailed statistics. We found the team treated our property with respect and ensured sensitive areas and items were duly supervised.
Finally, in closing the deal, David showed wisdom and experience in recommending patience and achieved a price and the upper end of our expected range. The face that he honestly assessed the value of the property in the current market, focusing his efforts on achieving this and not once asking us to compromise our goals shows his knowledge of the market and personal ability to persuade and convince the buyers."
"I would like to take this opportunity in congratulating and thanking you all for your efforts during these last few weeks. As said before, David you have been an absolute pleasure to deal with, at all times professional, meticulous, and always did what you said you were going to do. A true pleasure and on behalf of Christie and I, thank you.
John thanks for your personal input into my campaign. I really appreciate it. The agency which your group has chosen has done an excellent job, both in terms of advertising and PR. I just wish I could take David with me for all campaigns. He is the standard for what your other agents should work to."
