Clearly illustrating her strength of purpose, Kirstie became committed to a real estate career from the day that she left Port Macquarie High School. That was in 2001 and over the intervening years she has never wavered from that early commitment.
Starting from the grass roots of her chosen industry, Kirstie rose through the ranks to become a totally dedicated and award winning sales agent. Even today, her passion for helping people becomes evident when she can recount every detail of even, her very first sale. “It was a lovely property in Glen Ewan Road, Port Macquarie and I can still remember the look on the purchasers’ faces, when they found their dream home but, even more so, the delight of the vendor when the sale was confirmed and she was able to move forward, to the next chapter of her life.” The first of many subsequent successes, this transaction firmly reinforced Kirstie’s career choice and inspired her to strive towards the pinnacle in her profession.
Meeting Kirstie is a very pleasant and rewarding experience. With a quiet, yet purposeful demeanour, she has the rare ability to anticipate and address problems, without fuss and to inspire the confidence of the people with whom she deals. Over her years in the real estate industry, Kirstie has encountered and resolved most transactional difficulties and the ease with which she now deals with these matters, impresses even the most seasoned home owners. In her own words, she maintains, “I really enjoy the relationship which is built with vendors and also with potential purchasers. It is so important to establish a strong and trusted relationship, which not only ensures a greater thrill upon achieving a successful outcome, but builds friendships for years to come.”
Kirstie remains committed to the principle that real estate is, in reality, a people business. To establish long term working relationships and to receive their ongoing recommendations, she recognises the need to inspire trust and confidence, to communicate fully and to achieve the necessary results. She says “I will always go the extra mile. To offer a superior service, communicate fully and allow my customers to make informed decisions, which will make them happy for years to come.”
Kirstie has been a resident of Port Macquarie or Wauchope since the age of five and is a now a proud and doting mother to son, Alex. With her knowledge of the local real estate industry and with undoubted honesty and integrity, she recognised the ethical culture and superior marketing systems of McGrath Estate Agents and welcomed the opportunity to join their highly reputable team.
Specialising in property throughout Port Macquarie, Wauchope, King Creek, Telegraph Point, Lake Cathie, Bonny Hills and surrounding areas, she now embraces future challenges with typical enthusiasm. “I am delighted to be with the region’s premier estate agents. McGrath sets the benchmark in marketing, ethics, quality, service and success, and this is exactly where I feel at home.”
“In all my years of buying and selling real estate, dealing with McGrath’s, and Kirstie Shaw in particular, has been a welcome surprise and an experience greatly appreciated. Knowing there is a Plan B, even a Plan C alternative strategy if things take a left turn somewhere is heartening to know and really helps to inspire confidence. Any concerns are met with enthusiasm and promptly discussed to achieve resolve. Sure, McGrath’s may be a little dearer in commission, and the owner is expected to engage in weekly meetings to discuss the current strategy, responses attained, and possible alternatives to improve the property interest, but all this is well worth the expertise and effort that they put into marketing the property being sold. It is a far better alternative to what seems the normal experience with the average agent, where one purchases some sort of standard marketing package and then sits and waits whilst he tells you that things are a little quiet but should pick up soon – but really it’s because he has far too many properties in his portfolio and can’t apply the time and effort necessary…. All this whilst sitting and waiting for results that for obvious reasons will take far too long!! Not for me thanks – give me the pro-active personal approach any day, an approach where one is never out of the loop at any time!! Kirstie was brilliant…. Her advice was spot on, her effort never waned and she delivered what she said she would. Do not waste your time or money with anyone else….. if you want professionalism and timely results, go to McGraths and see Kirstie… it’s a no brainer!” Chris Adams
From my first meeting with Kirstie I found her to be friendly, positive and very professional. During the weeks my property was listed with McGrath Kirstie was in regular contact each time there was any interest / inquiries and nothing was too much trouble. After each “Open for Inspection” I would her from her that day with feedback.
It has been a pleasure to have Kirstie sell my home.
I would highly recommend anyone considering placing their home /property for sale to contact Kirstie and the professional team at McGrath for the best possible outcome. Toni Simpson
It is a pleasure for us to write this letter of reference for Kirstie Shaw – McGrath Estate Agents.
While going through the procedure of selling our home in Wauchope, which was done in a short period of time, we found Kirstie to be a most professional lady to deal with. She kept us informed constantly of the progress during the sale and looked after every little detail.
We would have no hesitation in highly recommending Kirstie to any prospective client considering putting their home on the market.
Many thanks Kirstie for all your hard work on our behalf. Elizabeth & Adrian Versluis
From the first moment we met Kirstie we were extremely impressed with her exceptional and professional knowledge of the market, her friendly and warm manner and we felt totally relaxed. We had not advertised prior but Kirstie assured us of a quick sale via Auction.
During the sale process we were continually updated and informed and any queries were responded to immediately. Kirstie showed superior professionalism and went above and beyond anything we expected when she sold our house within 18 days. We highly recommend Kirstie to any vendor who is considering selling their home. Phil & Samm White
