Here’s what the happy vendors had to say after the auction:  “When it came to time to sell our home we had no hesitation in contacting Tim Heavyside at Fletchers to handle the sale.  Tim had sold us our home 9 years ago, and we had been impressed by his professionalism, honesty and integrity.  After our initial meeting with Tim we were confident that we would have a successful outcome.

Tim, Jennifer Ellett and their team made it all so easy.  Their knowledge of prospective buyers for the area was extremely insightful with regard to the marketing campaign for the property.  The contact and feedback from the Fletchers team, particularly Jennifer, was constant, honest and reassuringWe can’t thank them enough for their endless assistance in selling our home and making the whole process seem effortless.

The result achieved was outstanding, and way above our expectations.  We would highly recommend them for their professionalism, eagerness, optimism, honesty and integrity.”  – Michael & Maureen.

Here’s what the happy vendors had to say after the auction:  “To the Team at Fletchers,

We are delighted with the service we have received from Jason Salan and Tim Heavyside on the sale of our Box Hill house.  They, together with their team, provided an extremely professional level of service and delivered on all they promised.

They followed up on all interested parties and we believe it was this tenacity that sold the property, for reserve, in a somewhat turbulent market.

The marketing Fletchers offers is first rate and sets it apart from the other Real Estate Agents. 

Jason should also be commended on “working” our relationship over many years.  Approximately 5 years ago we had Jason visit us to get his advice on a proposed renovation.  He gave some great advice which we still thank him for, he even visited us after the renovation to see the result.  When it came time to sell the property Jason Salan was our first choice as he had built a great relationship with us over the years. 

Yours Sincerely,  Sue-Ann and Richard”

Hi all.  I can’t believe that this time next week I’ll know how I went at the REIA (Real Estate Institute of Australia) National Awards For Excellence.  I’ll be sure to let everyone know the outcome, and hopefully have some great photos from the black tie event.

I’m really looking forward to getting up to the Gold Coast, and catching up with our new Mermaid Beach office.  Here’s a little promo they are running, kindly welcoming me to the Gold Coast.
