Shenton Park, WA
Buying a property is not easy at the moment. Despite studying the market for 18 months prior to moving to Perth, when we actually began to actively look for a new home, we were staggered at how unprepared we were. ‘Set date sale’, ‘expressions of interest’, ‘all offers considered’ – phrases that did little to help give us even a hint of an idea of where to pitch an offer price. How did we know what a property was worth? How could we be sure that we didn’t over-pay for our new home? We were quite prepared to pay the right price for the right house – but we were worried that we could very easily get ‘ripped-off’. So glad we found you, Rob and Daren. You listened to what we didn’t want – which was easier to put into words that what we did want. The certain things that were ‘must-haves’ were discussed and we really felt like you understood exactly what we wanted to look at. Then the house – never in our wildest dreams would we have expected you to find this house – a renovated cottage that was updated just how we would have done it ourselves!!! Not even listed on the market – how lucky were we? You took on all the negotiating and secured our dream home at the price we wanted to pay. Then your due diligence – making sure there were going to be no hidden surprises – no freeways being built nearby – no planning requests in that would be disruptive to us. We knew we had made a good choice in asking you to help us – it was the most hassle free move we have ever made. We would definitely use your services again and have passed your details to a number of our friends. Having said that, we won’t move for years – we are so happy here – you did such a good job listening to what we wanted and needed, that you found the perfect house for us. For that, we are eternally grateful.
