1. 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

    3 August 2012

    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

  3. 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.

  4. Testimonial for Paula Applin

     18 June 2013

    Recently I sold a property in Hamilton employing Paula Applin as my agent.  I found her service courteous and professional during the entire period, from the initial appraisal to settlement.

    Paula made me feel very confident in her knowledge and ability to secure a successful sale. I was kept informed at all times on the progress of all inspections and Paula helped make the whole experience pleasant and positive.

    I thoroughly recommend Paula Applin to anybody who is contemplating selling or buying.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Testimonial for Paula Applin

    19 June 2013

    I purchased my 2 bedroom villa in Nundah from Paula Applin (Havig & Jackson), back in 2010 when the property market was at its highest.

    Paula was fantastic from the start when I went to the “open home” she was really friendly, professional but not pushy and let me explore the property by myself and didn’t try to hard sell the home to me. End result was I purchased the Villa.

    Move forward 3 years to 2013 and due to work commitments interstate, I had to sell the property.

    I called Paula and we met that week, within 3 months Paula had sold my home, the market had dropped at least $20,000 in my area, but Paula marketed my property as “unique” and still managed to achieve a”boom” price for me even though the market had gone down.

    This showed Paula’s experience in the industry and that she is not only friendly, courteous, professional (even to the point of bringing her own towel for wet feet on rainy days for open homes) but that she is an asset to anyone who wishes to sell their property.

    Paula works really hard for “you” (the owner) and keeps you informed through the whole process and there wasn’t a single moment when I thought that Paula wouldn’t sell my home, because she is excellent at her profession, and she truly has a genuine care for the owner, and you feel as if you are her number one priority.

    Paula always returned phone calls and if she couldn’t answer your call, she would always text message if she was in a meeting or with other clients, so you always knew she was available and working for you at all times.

    I would have no hesitation and would highly recommend Paula Applin to anyone who was looking to sell their property.

    Kind Regards

    Greg Khan

    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
