The diligence and competence with which you marketed our town houses, in what can best be described as a difficult market, over the past 15 months has been an excellent example of best practice in real estate sales.We did not have to resort to the self promoting newspaper advertisements used by most real estate agents or ‘open days’ with the consequent intrusiveness of ‘tyre kickers’ and general disruption of our daily lives. All property viewings were by appointment and only genuine potential buyers were guided through the properties always in a completely professional manner."

“We had used four different agents over a period of eight months and spent thousands of dollars on advertising in that time, and none of them could sell our property at the price close to market value. They all said, trust us, we’re the best, but could not deliver. Within two days the team had the first potential buyer for an inspection. Within an hour they called back and said that they wanted to see us. Then to our surprise, there was a contract of sale for us to sign. It was an absolute shock to us. The offer was more than $25,000 over the best offer from the other agents.
We are over the Moon, and we don’t hesitate to recommend Stephen Smith Real Estate as the BEST AGENTS in the REDCLIFFE AREA.”

Throughout our dealings with you we were confident that you had Mum’s best interests at heart. We were very pleased with the process, which was always conducted with integrity and professionalism. All things considered, it was a relatively stress-free experience and, of course, we were very satisfied with the sale price of the property.”

“Three things differentiated your agency from the prior agency with which the property was previously unsuccessfully listed for many months:
1. You were thorough in explaining the sale process and how to maximise the sale price through effective listing and sales management practices.
2. Your team carefully matched the properties selling features to your potential buyers to find the right ‘match’.
3. You provided an indicative price range that the property would sell for… and then sold it within 3 days.
Thank you again for achieving the result we wanted and for the very professional manner in which you handled this sale.”

“I would like to pass on my thanks to all the staff at Stephen Smith Realty for selling our home so quickly. We had a few agents initially meet with us from different real estate agencies, but were very impressed with Michael’s presentation, along with his friendly and down to earth manner. We chose Michael, and Stephen Smith Realty as he seemed very honest and reliable and didn’t only say what he thought we wanted to hear. Your staff definitely worked for us, and in doing so got us the best price possible for our home, which we don’t believe the other agencies would have done.”
Peter & Melanie Bursey Roma Street, Scarborough
“Within 7 days of Stephen Smith’s team contacting us and asking if they could be of any assistance, you had the property sold and within a further six weeks we had the money in our bank. If the process of selling a house gets any easier than that I have never heard of it! More importantly your negotiating skills during the sale were first class, and we don’t make that statement lightly because our expectations were set very high and we were not going to accept anything but the best deal humanly and financially possible. If anyone ‘could get blood from a stone’ I suggest you would go close.”
