‘I engaged Deahnne Brodie from Ray White East Brisbane for my apartment sale. Her market knowledge and energetic professionalism resulted in a timely sale and we were very satisfied with the result. She communicated every step of the way and I will have no hesitation in using her user friendly services in the future.

“Thanks for the great service!  Kristine was always professional and helpful, particularly in negotiating the contract terms so that both parties were happy.  She was never pushy and was a great agent to deal with.”

It is my pleasure to write in support of the service provided by Trevor Egan in the recent sale of our property. In a very difficult market with a surfeit of riverside homes for sale, Trevor was able to generate significant interest in our property and achieve a sale at a reasonable price, whilst other agents struggled to do so. Trevor showed enthusiasm, good industry knowledge and dogged persistence to achieve their aim.

I can highly recommend Trevor Egan to any prospective seller or purchaser.

Kristine made buying in Celestial Court a real pleasure.  Since settling in, she has gone out of her way to help us with spare keys and recommend trades persons.  We are glad to know she lives in our estate.
Would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone selling their home.
Regards,
Tom Maguire

Hi Bernadette,

I hope this finds you well, rested from the holidays, and ready for another school year! As you probably know, we ended up selling Judge Street.  The property settled on 29th December. Thank you for all your assistance and support while managing our property.  Your service was excellent.  Thank you. We have been with Ray White since we purchased the property at the end of 2003 – that’s a long time!  Thank you to Ray White for their services over the years.

We wish you and the staff at RW all the best.

Donna & Darren – Landlord

Kristine & Jason were extremely professional and having dealt with Kristine previously we had no hesitation in engaging with them. They were amazingly positive and Kristine’s enthusiasm is infectious. We are extremely pleased with the results and have no hesitation in recommending them to other potential sellers. A very big thank you to both Kristine & Jason. A fabulous team, very positive every step of the way. They deserve a medal. Thank you!

Thank you Trevor Egan for a great effort and result in selling my house. I was very happy with you as my agent. You worked so hard to market and sell my house. I always found you very professional and supportive during the whole process and I have recommended you to several people who are looking to sell in the future. It wasn’t an easy sell with different issues associated with the house and its age, but I was very impressed with how determined you were to look after me. You also kept me fully informed with feedback from inspections and open houses. You were the most professional and courteous agent I have dealt with over the past few years in trying to sell my home. Thanks again!

Transactions, whether it be buying or selling, in real estate can be challenging and tense. I engaged Kristine and Jason to sell my property at Morningside, which resulted in a positive outcome for myself. My experience with Kristine and Jason was neither challenging or tense. I have no hesitation in suggesting that Kristine and Jason can provide a positive outcome for other clients, should they choose to engage their services and follow their advice.

Our thoughts about Rochelle Ferguson and Garry Price from the Ray White team at East Brisbane:

What a delight it has been to engage Rochelle and Garry to oversee the sale of our large house under difficult market conditions. From the first day of meeting to the successful sale of our house at auction, they have consistently shown a professional, courteous, tactful and patient approach.

Rochelle was always able to provide intelligent answers to a range of client’s questions and maintained a calm confidence about the outcome at times of client doubt. We were amazed by her willingness to labour hard on our behalf and leave no known stone unturned in her quest for a sale. Garry had a natural rapport with us and an immediate perceptive insight into the merits of our architect designed house. Without any doubt, it was his wealth of experience and end game negotiations that achieved a sale result that I had not expected. A result with which we are comfortable, content and now enables us to embark on the next stage of our retirement.

We cheerfully recommend Rochelle and Garry to manage the sale of what is for most of us, our biggest financial asset.

Cameron and Mary Beck

Trevor kept us well informed during the sale process keeping us up to date with interest after each open home. Trevor had a challenging role dealing with tenants who were renting the apartment, negotiating open homes and private viewings however was able to build a strong rapport to successfully negotiate a sale. Trevor had the enviable task of selling an apartment in a tough competitive market achieving a favourable sale for us. I personally found him to be well groomed, extremely approachable with great communication skills.

Kristine & Jason came to our house to sell their plan to market and sell our property. As we were not initially interested in auctions, they methodically and very confidently sold us a plan that they believed works and in a market that was beginning to improve, they convinced us to take the auction path. All the strategies that were promised were carried out very efficiently. Everything that was promised was completed within time frames that were set. Wendy & I have no hesitation in recommending Kristine & Jason to any prospective clients. “They put the trust back into the Real Estate Industry”

To Whom it May Concern,

I just wanted to notify your Real Estate organisation at East Brisbane that we have had the pleasure of dealing with Amy Muller as our Property Manager for the past year.  It’s not often that you come across a dedicated Property Manager who does an excellent job at assisting tenants.

Kind Regards, Emily Rosemond

It is my pleasure to be given the opportunity to give a testimonial on behalf of Ray White and in particular Kristine and Jason. From the very first conversation I had with them, their current knowledge of the housing market in my area impressed me. They carried out an inspection of my property within a few days and also advised me of what they would do to improve the marketability of the property. Within a day they had mapped out the advertising required. Their market appraisal and expected sale price was very close to what I required. They are true professionals at their job and I highly recommend them to anyone wishing to sell their property. All the best to you both for the future and many thanks for a job well done.

I wish to commend Kristine Jankovic and Jason Devantier on the recent purchase of our new home in Cannon Hill. I cannot speak highly enough of both Kristine and Jason’s professionalism and enthusiasm from the outset. They made every effort to accommodate my request for an immediate inspection of the property before the first open home, which most agents would have avoided as too hard only one day prior. During the process Kristine kept in complete communication with me up to settlement and the whole transaction ran extremely smoothly because of her involvement and knowledge. After settlement Kristine continued to liase with me regarding co-ordinating tradesman and the builder to fix any minor problems and to make sure our new home was perfect for my family. When buying or selling in the Inner east area I would always call Kristine and Jason as their service is impeccable and their local knowledge is unrivalled.

To Kristine & Jason,

Just would like to extend our appreciation in writing as the work you have done for us and the sale of our property has been outstanding.  During the sale of our property there were many obstacles we had to overcome, one being the fact that both of us (the property owners) were overseas at the time of the sale; with your assistance and communication from our different parts of the world you were still able to manage our property for the sale to proceed in which we were especially grateful for.

Your advice and assistance went above and beyond your expected duties therefore I would highly recommend you to many other prospective clients who may need your assistance. I know any future business I wish to conduct will be considered with you in mind as first priority. Kind regards and again THANK YOU

“We chose Deahnne for the sale of our unit based on our experience when we originally purchased it through her.  We always found Deahnne extremely courteous, efficient, honest and reliable and very knowledgeable with regards to the Kangaroo Point area and we felt that these qualities in Deahnne would assist us during the sale of our unit. We benefitted from using Deahnne due to her sales knowledge and hard work ethics. Deahnne constantly kept us up to date prior to the sale and during the finalization of the sales process.  My husband and I felt comfortable in the knowledge that Deahnne was working in our best interests.”

Sharron | Kangaroo Point | Vendor

I would recommend buying and selling with Deahnne. Her ability to communicate and always be honest and direct has made the process for me much less stressful than I have found it with other agents in the past. Having sold 4 properties with her over the last 6 months I have total belief that she is genuine 100 percent of the time which is very rare in the industry. She always achieved an incredible sale price that I was happy with. Anytime that the sale process was slowing she kept me informed and created new opportunities to generate real interest. I can’t express how thankful I am that I discovered Deahnne and involved her in my real estate experience.

Paul & Michelle | Kangaroo Point | Vendor

The service provided to us with the sale of our property was excellent. A result was not expected for several months yet Deahnne Brodie had researched and followed up so that a deal was arranged within weeks. And at a very acceptable price after some minor discussions. We were kept in the picture all the time with updates via email and phone so that we knew exactly what was happening and when. As we were travelling at the time this was not easy yet the high level of service was maintained including while Deahnne was herself overseas and she took on the follow up work with courtesy and enthusiasm. We would not hesitate to recommend that others use the same professional services which we did through Deahnne to achieve a satisfactory result in good time with all the details taken care of on our behalf. We were able to enjoy our time away even more knowing that we were in good professional hands.

Doug & Laurice | Kangaroo Point | Vendor

We bought our home in Bulimba back in 2007 whilst the property market was booming.  Like many people we did not foresee the hard times that were just about to hit us all financially, especially in the property sector. Over the 7 years we owned our home we tried to sell it 4 times unsuccessfully.  We had high hopes & were left disappointed and each time, with not even receiving an offer that could come close to a price we were able to legitimately accept. I saw that Cathy & Madi had taken a home to auction close to our home which was sold within weeks, whilst our home which was for sale still hadn’t had a single offer.  I called them to get some advise as I was feeling very hopeless about our current situation. They came to visit my husband and myself within a day or 2 and advised us of a formula  to use, in which they believed would successfully sell our home. Upon their advice we decided to take our home to auction, which is usually something we would not have felt comfortable in doing.  We embarked on a strong marketing campaign & true to their word we had several offers & 1 in particular in which we were happy with, which caused us to sign a contract on our home before the actual Auction day.  30 days later our house was Sold, the money was in the bank, we had moved out and handed over the keys.

So a very big thank you to Both Madi & Cathy from Ray White East Side!!  As you can imagine we are thrilled with the outcome and very relieved.

It has been our great pleasure to work with Cathy and Madi Roche in their capacity as Real Estate Agents in relation to the recent sale of our home in East Brisbane.

We found their approach to the sales process to be simple, easy to follow and unintimidating. No pressure was applied at any stage – a rarity in our considerable real estate experience. Both Cathy and Madi were a delight to deal with at all times. They were thoughtful, warm, kind and considerate of our needs. Cathy is a very capable, experienced operator, with an impressive knowledge of the process. Madi’s attention to detail was at a level way beyond her years, and together, mother and daughter made a formidable team. Their combined local knowledge and experience were invaluable in assisting us to determine both our marketing strategy and sales goal. We achieved a great result in the minimum of time, with no hiccups whatsoever, and our experience was a most pleasant one from start to finish.

In short, we have no hesitation in recommending them both very highly, and would most certainly use them both again when next we sell.

Just a short note to thank Cathy and Madi for all their help selling our family home at Coorparoo.  I have no hesitation in recommending Cathy & Madi to anyone selling their home.  Their dedication, negotiating skills and just plain hard work came to the fore and produced a great result for the family.   They put forward all the information their experience brings, whilst listening to our concerns, they tailored a strategy to suit our needs.  Highly recommend.

Once again, thank you Cathy & Madi.

I just wanted to provide a bit of feedback regarding the recently started Amy Muller as our property manager for 40 + 42 Clarendon St.

From my dealings with Amy so far, I would have to say that in the 8 years that we have had rental properties, Amy would be one of if not the best Manager I have encountered. I have found that she: Has carried out thorough a property inspections- and, followed up all items to the full extent. Kept me up to date on all issues, has a prompt and concise explanation for any queries and is apparently very focused and attentive to the job at hand.

I have found in times past I have often had to be on top of some issues myself- Amy has given me the impression that this is not required and is doing everything required- which is great peace of mind. Hope you can keep her long term!

All the best, Peter Ross

Dear Cathy and Madi,

Thank you for your amazing efforts in selling Margaret’s home at 19 Ryan Av, Balmoral.

Your insight to look past the condition of the house when it was first presented to you and identify the true potential for the market was incredible. The enthusiasm you displayed in identifying the little matters that would make all the difference and liaising with us and the trade people that you kindly organised resulted in a sale well beyond our expectations. You and your support staff were always prompt and kept us informed in an appropriate and professional manner. We appreciate your tireless efforts and that no obstacle was too great. You followed through from the listing all the way to settlement and after.

We really appreciate your efforts and would have no hesitation in utilising your excellent services again. We will be recommending that others thinking of selling contact you to achieve the best result. Thank you once again. Val and I could not be happier.

Regards, Robert Newton

Paul Liddy has proven that the concept of a consultancy based relationships like he has developed with his database builds incredible referral and repeat business – particularly in the higher end of the market – It’s about earnt trust   Steve Britsdad – Spinks & Co

I have no hesitation in recommending Paul Liddy as a residential property expert.

Don O’Rorke – Chairman. Consolidated Properties

I thought to myself the man is a genius. I know you would have had a big hand in there somewhere. Still tell people you’re the best I have seen or worked with. Not getting all mushy, just wanted to say.

Adrian Kirwan – Bartholomeusz Kirwan Real Estate

After much hard work and service well beyond the call of duty, the property sold in what I believe was a credit to Paul and his persistence. He makes you feel as though the only property he is working on is yours

Greg McCarthy – Managing Director TMS Asia-Pacific

I cannot say enough about Paul’s professionalism and marketing skills. He is extremely astute at assessing a client’s needs and makes what can be a painful process a fun and exciting ride. His positive attitude and ‘no mucking around’ nature have lent me to recommend Paul too many people. Use Paul, not only won’t you be disappointed, you’ll be pleasantly surprised that there is an agent out there that is really working for you and puts his clients interest ahead of his own

David & Layle Pavia – Teneriffe

Paul sold our property after having it on the market for a mere 8 days, for an unconditional 21 day contract and a price considerably more than we expected. As results go, it truly was remarkable. Combine that with his professional, straight forward, easy going nature and the entire process was not simply stress free but actually fun.

Richard & Lana Edmonds – Dornoch Tce Highgate Hill

I can only speak from person experience, in that Paul’s work ethic and marketing skills were excellent…I was more than pleased with the result, and can highly recommend Paul as a marketing and Auction expert.

Ben White – White Property Group

Paul, I know whenever you do work for a client they seem to only focus on the negative and never say anything about the positive things. I just wanted to say I think you are doing a great job with our house. I think the brochure; the sign and the ads are a great design and stand out from the rest. I also like your positive attitude about our house and your direct and honest approach with us and other people.

Gabrielle Reinhardt – Clayfield.

Paul Liddy the Auctioneer was terrific and a big reason for the success.

Sam Raiti – Century 21 Clayfield

Jon & Sonia Wyer – Wyer and Craw Kitchens.

I thought I should write to you to express my appreciation for the way in which you handled the sale of our property in Teneriffe…. Your subsequent handling of the marketing left me in no doubt that we were able to extract the best possible price….I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone wishing to buy or sell property in the area and look forward to doing business with you in the future.

Dear Paul, A quick note to thank you for your good advice on the handling of our sale at 17 Cordeaux St Highgate Hill. It was refreshing to deal with a professional who so obviously enjoys the strategic aspect of real estate sales, and who was friendly and witty to boot!  Keep an eye out for a house for us to come back to in a few years’ time.

Paul to thank you for doing such an amazing job, can I buy you dinner or a drink this week?  You name your bar/rest.

Toby Lewis – Marquee Properties

Dear Paul, Many thanks for presenting your workshop at our recent staff retreat. The feedback from staff was excellent. Perhaps the most beneficial part of the presentation was the material on identifying and separating clients wants from needs, the need to listen and points of entry and closure. The advice was practical, immediately applicable and well received. We would be interested in a refresher course at next year’s retreat. Many staff commented on your engaging, energetic presenting style that made for such an interesting session. I would be delighted to give feedback to any prospective clients who might be interested in your capabilities and experience as a presenter.

Helen Besly – The Rowland Company

Paul I just wanted to send a quick note to say thanks……when I found myself in this situation I thought of you and I am so glad I did…You saved me a lot of money, stress and frustration with some great ideas and a fantastic end result.

Many, many thanks for all of your help. We found you to be very professional and would certainly recommend you to anyone buying or selling property in your area.

Many thanks also for the ‘bow’ and the gift box – a brilliant touch, especially for a first time home buyer.

Dear Bella,

I’m nominating you as property manager of the year!!! . You put the “human” back into humanity.

I was expecting a” Dear John” thanks, but no thanks, response.

Thank you Bella, every other property manager that I deal with throughout the state would just pay me lip service or just say no.

Regards, Brian Cazzulino

Dear Frank,

Late last year I also bought a house in Norman Park through Ray White East Brisbane – I thought you should know that Juan Alvarez was fantastic to deal with.
