I've been a luxury and high-end builder for over 40 years and have dealt with my share of agents over the journey - Last year we had to sell my Father’s home in East Hawthorn. I've lived in the area all my life I and didn’t want to deal with the usual suspects and other ‘big brand’ agents - And having previously sold my own home a few years earlier with another highly touted local agency I was totally underwhelmed by their whole campaign, auction day and the result. A friend in the know suggested I speak with Joe. From the moment we sat down I knew I was working with the right person to sell Dad's home. He was 100% upfront with me about all aspects of his sales process and shared with me his clear plans to deliver the crucial result. Once I'd signed on, Joe was focused and on the ball, called me almost daily and kept me in the loop. Something I'd never experienced with other agents. Joe also wasn't bringing me tire kickers and time wasters, the people other agents often show up with to make up numbers, but who are really just sniffing around with no intent to make an offer - Instead we had a select grouping of solidly profiled active buyers. Joe's pitch and marketing approach was far more intuitive and I have to say he nailed it - his read of the market, the buyer's personas and their specific needs was spot on and he was confident we'd sell prior to auction well above the average for the area.
True to his word we sold prior to auction - And Joe not only surpassed the amount I had secretly wished for. He set a record for the street, which given the quality of homes surrounding us was truly amazing. Not only were the couple who bought the property delighted, Joe established a great rapport with the buyers who missed out and he unselfishly connected them with another agent to find and buy their dream home nearby. I recommend Joe to anyone with the highest respect for his professionalism and everything he brings to the table.
