"Both Debs and Flora were amazing throughout our home buying journey. We will actually miss catching up with them. Our purchase wasn't a standard home sale and we were kept informed and up to date the whole time. Wonderful service.”

“Our house was always going to need the right buyer as it is not a "cookie cutter" house.  And Debs was just the right agent to find that buyer as she does not fit the mould either.  What Debs has, is vision, passion, drive, commi...tment and professionalism - all rolled into one unique package.  What she and her support team did with our house was beyond my imagination.  She opened up the possibilities so it appealed to a wide range of buyers, and in the end we sold to a young couple who will be able to bring their family up in a much loved home, as we have over the last 20 years.   Debs guided us through the preparation and sale process with good humour, gentle persuasion and at times some well needed pestering to keep us on task.  She was spot on in her evaluation of the value of the house and she handled us with sensitivity to our needs as two busy professionals.”

"Just a note to say thanks again for your hard work in selling our home. We appreciated your respectful honesty in advising us which aspects of our home we needed to adjust to make it more marketable - and once we'd made those adjustments we wish...ed we'd thought to do them ourselves earlier so we could have enjoyed them for longer. You made sure the photos were stunning and the house was perfect in every sense for each open home, and we love that you thought to bring in your own little touches each time. Among the changes and advice you gave us, we always felt that you respected our space and our circumstances. We recognise that marketing a home that contains a busy toddler is never easy, but we never felt rushed or pressured in any way. And finally, we were blown away on the tender day - we never expected to get so many excellent offers, and the final price was far beyond what we had ever thought possible. We really put it all down to you and your hard work. We would absolutely recommend your services to anyone." - Lara and Gary July 2017

“Just a brief note to acknowledge the excellent work you did in helping me to prepare me home for sale, negotiate with prospective buyers and overall guide the process to a positive outcome for me. You were the only real estate agent to tel...l me straight what I needed to do to make my house significantly easier to market through painting, replacement of light fittings, cupboard doors & handles, etc. Your ´eye´ for this was excellent and every change you recommended brought my house closer to a "new home" look like a design magazine. The effect I call the Debs Treatment and it was so worth it in the tough market I faced when house sales dropped dramatically. I also want to acknowledge your skills in keeping the prospective buyers´ moving along the process and working hard to create the relationship between me and the buyers that enabled us both to resolve issues without threatening the sale. Lastly, I believe you got me the best price possible in the market. As we saw, my neighbours who chose another agent who did not guide them as you did me have still not sold their home, lovely as it is. If your sellers will follow your advice, I believe they will have the best chance of selling their home for the optimal price. With appreciation for your skills and expertise, Karen Martyn"
