1. Testimonial for Paula Applin

    Paula was wonderful when helping me find my first property to purchase so when the time came it only seemed fitting that she be the one to help me sell it. Paula’s professionalism and kindness helped to make the sale of my property relatively stress free and very easy. Paula continues to be my first choice when looking to purchase or sell property. She is always a pleasure to deal with and I look genuinely forward to calling on her for help in the future.

  2. Testimonial for Paula Applin

    I would like to take the opportunity to commend Paula Applin on her efforts and outcome in selling my property and ask that you pass on this message to the General Manager of the organization.

    The Ascot property is the 4th property that I have sold personally in my time and I grew up with my father in real estate.

    Paula was a standout salesperson from the moment she spoke to me on the phone.  While the initial plan for auction was not successful, her continued engagement and persistence was very pleasing.  Her communication was extremely effective, regular and understanding.  I had thought that I had taken the property off the market but Paula continued to call (and pepper) and organize open houses or private walkthroughs.

    Paula’s efforts are much appreciated and led to the settlement of the property yesterday.  Paula is a credit to your organization and clearly worthy of commendation within your organization.

    This is my first dealing with the Havig & Jackson organization, it won’t be the last.  Thanks for your assistance with selling the property and please feel free to contact me should you wish to discuss anything further.

    Regards,

    Matt Allen

  3. Testimonial for John Weaver

    RE:  Sale of Apartment at Mariner’s Reach, Newstead

    I wish to compliment John on his competent handling of the sale of my apartment in Mariner’s Reach.

    Under John’s careful eye for detail, presentation and skillful supervision, within one week, the twelve year old apartment was transformed into pristine condition.

    At minimal expense, re-painting, re-carpeting and minor maintenance repairs were completed, while John attended to the courtyard garden and cleaning of the kitchen and bathrooms.

    The apartment was marketing for inspection in immaculate condition on the 14th November, 2009 and sold within three weeks, on a thirty day contract which was settled without any complications.

    Full credit to John for his professionalism, courtesy, marketing skills, dedication and sincerity in dealing with me, the vendor and the purchasers, who are now the happy owners.

    Thank you John,

    Bruce N, Newstead

  4. Testimonial for John Weaver

    Dear John,

    As we about to move from Kingsholme Street, Julie and I just wanted to drop you a line to sincerely thank you for the superb job you did marketing and selling our home.

    As you would expect we spoke to a number of Real Estate Agents, however there was never any doubt in our mind after we met you, that you were the person we would choose.

    Your professional approach from the outset was refreshing and we were sure that potential buyers would feel equally impressed and that could only help us in the selling process.

    You gave us excellent advice at our first meeting regarding some finishing touches that needed to be done before going to market and we are both convinced they amounted to a very worthwhile investment that enable us to achieve an excellent price for the property.

    Your marketing of the property was thorough and attentive, as well as always considerate to the fact that our way of life was disrupted as little as possible. The fact that we sold the house within two weeks of it being on the internet and one week after advertising in the newspaper certainly helped to keep the disruption to a minimum.

    Finally, we were extremely happy with the way you conducted the all important negotiating process with two potential buyers.

    All in all a job very well done and we will certainly be keeping in touch fro the next time we want to sell a property. Many thanks.

  5. Testimonial for John Weaver

    We would highly recommend John Weaver to anyone wanting to sell a property.  At all times, John was helpful, approachable and professional.  He is very genuine and warm, which certainly appealed to us after other not so agreeable experiences.

    John ‘knew his stuff’ re the market we were selling in and advised us appropriately.  Although the property we had for sale was only a small apartment, John never treated us as though our sale was any less important than a far bigger one!

    Our property was an investment property and John also treated our tenants with respect, keeping them as informed as possible, which we, and they, appreciated!

    Thank you, John, for your time and attention,

    Karen and Anton T

    • Constructive suggestions on how a property should be presented,
    • An ability to prepare a needs brief and works schedule,
    • Access to reliable, competent, contractors and suppliers,

    After John managed the refurbishment of my property he secured a sale within 10 days. As the seller, I was very pleased and the buyer was delighted with their purchase.

  7. Testimonial for John Weaver

    At the height of the global financial crisis, I signed an unconditional contract on a house in New South Wales and, with some trepidation, placed my house in New Farm on the market.

    I listed the house with John Weaver from Havig and Jackson as sole agent.

    I cannot praise John too highly for the way he advised me and handled the sale.  His advice on a listing price and on the way the house should be presented for sale was considered and appropriate.

    Within 3 WEEKS of listing we had a contract for the sale of the house at a very good price and on terms which suited our move to New South Wales. John handled all inspections and negotiations with skill, discretion and impeccable politeness at all times.

    I have no hesitation in recommending John Weaver as a real estate agent.

  8. Testimonial for John Weaver

    My wife and I have recently had the pleasure of selling a unit through Havig and Jackson, this is the second time I have used your services and remain very happy with the agency.

    We especially wish to pass on our appreciation for John Weaver for his outstanding assistance he has gave us with the sale of our unit.

    John has exceeded our expectations with not only the sale happening from the first open house but also for a price that my wife and I are happy with.

    John has displayed great depth of knowledge about not only property sales but also interior design and renovations.  He provided us with great guidance in renovating the unit and organised professional suppliers and trades people who have made the unit look truly amazing.

    Dealing with John is an absolute delight.  He has made the normally stressful process of bringing a unit up to a high standard for sale much easier, added to this is his very personal and approachable. We found John to very easy to talk to and he is always happy to explain reasoning behind any decision and expand what processes need to be performed.

    During the process of renovating and the sale John was always in contact with us and kept us up to date with what was happening and he was always on top of any issues or problems that had arisen ensuring that nothing was left unchecked.

    I would happily recommend John and Havig & Jackson for anyone who is looking at buying or selling property and will be very happy to work with John in the future.

    John exceeded expectations organizing sub contractors and City Hall where required.  John has supported me ensuring decisions made are in my best interest whenever required.  I work remote and am not always contactable.

    John is decent, honest and has integrity.  I recommend John Weaver.

  10. Testimonial for John Weaver

    I first came into contact with John whilst based overseas, at the time I was deliberating as to whether to place my house on the market or continue renting the property. Within a very short timeframe John provided a comprehensive appraisal, together with an update of the prevailing market conditions and an idea as to what I might expect price wise.

    Upon returning to Australia and deciding to place it on the market, John updated the appraisal and set about putting together an action plan/business proposal.

    To cut a long story short the property was sold within a day of officially going on the market and the price achieved was within a whisker of the asking figure.

    John is an excellent sales person who personifies professionalism with a strong attention to details and prompt follow up action. I really felt that we worked as a ‘Team’ and nothing was too much in sorting out any issues that cropped up along the way. He definitely goes ‘beyond the call of duty’ but above all, endeavours to convey a sense of reality in relation to expectations. In addition, from the other side of the coin, he provides buyers with a ‘shepherding’ approach to help steer them in the right direction.

    It was an absolute pleasure dealing with John and I wish him all the very best for the future.
