1. Testimonial for Mark Bisaro

    23 April 2008

    Dear Mark,

    In April 2008 my wife and I engaged Mark Bisaro as our agent with respect to the sale of our house in new Farm. The quality of Mark’s performance was such that I am pleased to provide the following as a testament to his efforts.

    When we first engaged mark we were unsure of the state of the market, the market value of the property and the most advantageous method of selling the property. Mark gave us professional, objective and (as it happens) excellent advice on all of these matters.

    Mark advised us to proceed with an auction campaign due to the easing in the real estate market. His recommendation was provided based on being able to generate competition amongst buyers with regard to the sale of our house. Mark built and executed a significant marketing program which we were delighted with; he was able to source at no extra cost, editorial in four press publications. The internet and press advertisements were of a very high standard and resulted in a tremendous response from buyers in the marketplace.

    Our property sold under the hammer at auction for a price that we were delighted with, well in excess of the reserve price that we had set.

    We were most impressed with the candour and honesty with which he communicated with us in relation to all aspects of the sale of the property.

    We have since purchased another house in Noosa and sadly the benchmark that Mark provided as far as what we would expect of a real estate agent was never met by his northern counterparts.

    In conclusion, I commend Mark Bisaro and am confident that his honesty, integrity, professionalism and knowledge will assist any potential property sellers in the sale of their property.

    Yours sincerely,

    Patrick Fitzgibbons

  2. Testimonial for John Weaver

    John Weaver sold our three bedroom unit with river views only a few days after he listed it.

    When John first came to our unit to discuss the sales approach, we were impressed by his honesty, integrity and knowledge of the current house price trends. Everything was straight forward and John answered all our questions sincerely and professionally.

    We requested what needed to be done in order to make the unit as saleable as possible and John not only gave his advice freely, but explained why he said what needed to be done.  His suggestions were acted upon and, as I say, the unit sold almost immediately, very close to the asking price for which it was advertised.

    John’s manner is friendly but professional and he pays close attention to every detail.  John was most helpful recommending tradesmen to come in to do minor repairs work. John gave us copies of all documentation to read.

    He explained the Agreement, contract, Declaration, his Commission and any other paperwork that was required before he even suggested signing anything.

    John kept us well informed of the progress of Inspections and the Sale, exchange of contracts and Date of Settlement, as the sale progressed to a very satisfactory conclusion.

    I highly recommend Mr John Weaver to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling their property, to act for them as their Real Estate Agent.

  3. Testimonial for Mark Gri

    Simon and I would like to thank you for making the experience of buying our apartment such a smooth one. From the moment we put in our first offer, we felt like you were working for us as much as the seller. You kept us informed each step of the way, and went out of your way to assist us (like when we wanted access afterhours to take more measurements).

    Briohny and Simon, Clayfield

    Dear Mark,

    Thank you for the successful sale of 18 Wilmington St, Wooloowin.

    Yours sales campaign and general approach to the marketing of the property was commendable and displayed your experience and knowledge of the area and current market trend. Between listing the property and a signed contract, the property was on the market for less than a week.

    We were confident at all times to be guided by your recommendations. We believe the pricing fitted well with the property and as such attracted a great deal of interest resulting in a quick sale with two additional back up contracts. It was your professionalism that put our mind at rest. We could not have asked for a better result.

    Then you Mark, we will certainly refer you and your services to those looking for an exceptional agent.

    Yours sincerely,

    Phillip & Christine Mathers

  5. Testimonial for John Weaver

    We were very apprehensive about how the sale of our property would go, given the downturn in the property market here in Brisbane.

    We had only just finalised the purchase of our current property through John the previous week and found the experience first class.

    We decided to enlist John as our agent in the sale because of the great stress free experience we had in the purchase of our current property.

    John was our first choice and he was enthusiastic and diligent from day one.

    My wife and I were very pleased with John’s overall salesmanship, his eye for detail and his endless advice on how to best present the property for sale.  We believe that it was these qualities that saw the conditional contract in place after only one week from the first listing, and as it turned out, on the first open house weekend.

    John possesses exceptional communication skills both with us as the vendor and also the buyers.  No question was any bother for him to answer and he was able to keep both parties ‘in the loop’ throughout the whole contract period.  The contract went unconditional without a hitch.

    My wife and I have no hesitation in recommending Havig & Jackson, and in particular John Weaver  as an agent to act upon your behalf in any sale or purchase of real estate within the greater Brisbane area.

  6. Testimonial for Mark Gri

    After looking for about 12 months for a suitable property and having met many real estate agents, I met Mark when he showed me what was to become my new home. I found Mark to be interested in what I was looking for but not pushy. He would always return my calls within a reasonable time and acted and spoke with a calm, professional manner which made it easy for me to ask the questions that I needed to ask.

  7. Testimonial for John Weaver

    Thank you for all the assistance that you’ve provided to us throughout the contract period.  You have been an absolute pleasure to deal with and I would have no hesitation in highly recommending you to family and friends who may in the future be in the market to either buy or sell.

    Your total professionalism throughout the process has made the ordeal of buying a property that much easier, especially knowing that you’ll respond when you say you will.

    It’s very unusual for me to send through my feedback, particularly when unsolicited, and I am doing so as it is extremely unusual to conduct any type of business with someone who is an absolute professional.  Kudos to you.

    Thank you very much for your assistance.

  8. Testimonial for Mark Bisaro

    3 August 2012

    Dear Mark,

    Thank you once again for your commitment and professionalism in the sale of our property at 96 Lodge Road, Wooloowin.

    Sourcing an agent requires a feeling of comfort and compatibility between both parties and a close partnership for the term of the sale is essential. Mark, you certainly fulfilled that criteria. You had the ability to promote confidence and trust in us with your sales approach to our property which was honest and very professional.

    The successful sale of the property is always the desired outcome. However, meeting vendor’s and purchase’s expectations in the current market is a difficult task and requires special skills. Your diplomatic and professional approach during the sale of our property meant the best result was achieved for all parties involved.

    We always felt that you had our best interest at heart and felt very confident in following any recommendations you made.

    We certainly recommend your services most highly to vendors wishing to sell their property through a committed agent with integrity.

    Yours sincerely,

    Phillip & Christine Mathers
