Nash did not minimise the value and potential of the property and was flexible towards the marketing and other aspects of the contract. Nash listened to us, considered our particular needs, and put together a marketing strategy that suited us. Accurate dimensions were taken of the house with some superb aerial photos showing the positive aspects of the location. Despite the age of the house he also assisted us in presenting the house through professional photos showing the prospective buyers the ‘potential.’ After only 7 days, two offers were tendered, both within the parameters of our asking price, one of which we accepted. Nash helped us sell the house quickly, avoiding the anxiety of a prolonged sale for my mother. At all times I found Nash to be genuine, considerate, professional and responsive to the needs of all parties concerned in the transaction. If ever buying in the area again, he would be our first contact.
We had to manage the sale of our mother's property from a distance. Martha from Drake Real Estate, from the outset, provided balanced and data-informed advice on the market and options for a measured marketing campaign. She drew on her direct knowledge of the market and the profiles of potential purchasers for this kind of property. She personally assisted with the preparations of the property for its sales campaign and maintained close and informative contact before and after each sales action or event. Within a few weeks, her campaign generated several offers and she shepherded the interactions with the eventual purchaser. Throughout the process Martha not only confirmed our early confidence in her professional capabilities, but also personally did things to make our remote management task that much easier. We would thoroughly recommend this agency, and in particular, Martha MacLaurin -Wood, to those seeking a professional, trustworthy, and effective real estate service.
We were delighted with the highly attentive personal service provided by Nash Varney throughout the initial purchase of our apartment and its subsequent sale, plus assisting us as a retired couple in smoothing our transition from independent living to a retirement village. The staff at Drake backed Nash up in organising short-term rental accommodation until our retirement Unit is ready. Everything was handled with smooth professionalism despite considerable difficulties with timing. We would recommend Drake to anyone - and already have.
