I think John knows just about everyone living in Elanora Hts. He's been in the Northern Beaches area for a long time and has established a good network. His local connections are invaluable. We had quite a bit of work to do to get the house ready for sale and John was ready and willing to lend a hand by suggesting what we should do and even calling tradesmen and meeting them at the house for us. He even rolled his sleeves up and moved some furniture! This value adding was unexpected but a very welcome surprise. He was committed throughout the process from before we even signed him right through to settlement. I also felt he wanted to get a good sale price for us, not just whatever was easiest for him.
Martha was a pleasure to have involved in our purchase. Although acting for the vendor, we (the purchasers) felt she was trustworthy and genuinely working to get an outcome for both parties. We would like to esspecially thank Martha as we would not have looked at this property if she had not pointed it out to us. Her communication skills were great and we enjoyed dealing with her.
We first developed our view of John more on the stark contrast to other local agents who generally came off insincere, pushy, dismissive and lacking depth to their knowledge. We couldn't understand why some agents would seek to push a point that was clearly incorrect and only suiting their pitch for the property. We found John to be the complete opposite. He was fair in his assessment of the market and the individual property and wasn't afraid to talk about both the positives and negatives. He was diligent in all his follow-ups and was patient with us as we worked through the exhaustive decision to purchase our home. We hope never to sell our new humble abode but if we do we will be using John.
