Recently, my husband and I reluctantly made the decision to downsize from our acre property and family and friends suggested we contact Brett to handle the sale.

From the outset, Brett understood the difficulty of our decision and encouraged us to take our time before proceeding with placing our home on the market. Once the final decision was made, Brett valued our home with a realistic figure and proceeded to prepare for the sale, at all times keeping us informed of what was happening.
 
One Thursday afternoon, photos were posted on the internet and by Saturday afternoon we had an offer which was accepted.
 
Brett handled our business with professionalism and efficiency while at the same time advising and helping us with kindness and understanding.
 
We have since recommended Brett to friends and family as we know they will have the very best assistance in selling their property.

Hi Brett

Thank you so much for all your expertise, advice and help in selling Mum's home.

We really appreciated you keeping us informed after each home open, and making each step in the sale understandable and easy for us. You did a great job and met all our expectations, and then some.

We would highly recommend you to any friends or family who are wanting to sell their home.

Thank you again Brett,

Vicki Duda, Kath Brown and Peggy Underdown


We recently sold our home with Brett and were extremely satisfied with the professional but friendly service he provided. He was extremely open and honest and kept us regularly informed throughout the whole time.

We would highly recommend Brett to anyone wanting to buy or sell their home.

Brett recently sold our home for us and it was a very stress fee experience. First off we received a very professional market appraisal report that detailed why our home was worth what it was and compared similar home sales and what else was currently listed. This gave us confidence when pricing our home as we were very motivated sellers. His appraisal proved very accurate and we were able to have our home under offer within a few views.

Brett undertook a good range of advertising within our budget, sent email flyers to hundreds of prospective buyers and followed up all leads diligently. We very much appreciated how he kept us updated at every stage. We never had to wonder or worry! 

Thanks Brett for a job well done we are very happy to recommend you to our family and friends.

Dear Brett Johnston
Thank you for selling my home.  I am a senior person and had been in my home for 18 years so it was a big step for me.  You were so kind and helpful during the process and always took the time on the phone when I needed advice.  You made a very stressful time easy and I appreciate your personal attention when guiding me through the process.
 
Once again thank you so much and I will be recommending you to all my friends and family.

Making the decision to sell was a monumental and highly emotional decision as we were wholeheartedly committed to the lifestyle we enjoyed on our half acre block with an extensive garden. However, our needs had changed so we were not only going to sell but we were also in the market to buy a smaller house which could fulfil our needs. We therefore had no hesitation in selecting Brett Johnston to become our real estate agent because he was a trusted and highly thought of member of our community who has an extensive personal knowledge of our area.
 
Throughout both the selling and buying process, Brett was sensitive to our needs, kept us well-informed, made regular visits to our home so we could ask questions which were always answered to our satisfaction, kept us up to date with his extensive across the board media advertising and gave us valuable advice about the presentation of our house for home-open days, always with follow-up feedback. Brett continued to support and assist us, providing pertinent advice through to settlement.
 
Above all Brett was always professional, pleasant and extremely patient, an attribute which we greatly valued and we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to others.

“Brett Johnston offered us a personalised service that enabled us to feel really looked after. In order for us to achieve our price, Brett gave us really solid selling tips which navigated us towards excellent presentation for our home open. As a result our home was under offer before the sign even hit the ground! Brett's calm confident manner has made the often hard task of moving an easy one and all liaising with settlement agents and buyers was done with a high level of professionalism and efficiency".

“Investing in property is a major and expensive move and above all you need sound advice and help that you can trust. I have dealt with Brett for many years and always had complete faith in his advice, which has never been misplaced. He can always be trusted and will find a solution to your problems”.

"Upon deciding that we wanted to sell our house, my wife and I considered what we thought was important in a Real Estate Agent.  We wanted personal service, to be regularly informed, reasonable agents fees and to obviously sell our house for the best possible price.  Based on these criteria, we felt Brett Johnston Real Estate offered the best option for us.  Being a smaller agent, Brett offered a very personal service that made us feel that selling our property was a genuine priority to him.  This started with a very fair, reasonable and transparent assessment of the value of our house in the market and where and how we should start the marketing of our property.  Brett kept us regularly informed of home open days (as we weren’t living in the house at the time) and the amount and type of traffic through and any other follow ups from home opens. 

Once we got to the point of reviewing offers presented, Brett provided very logical and practical advice on negotiations that made us feel that he was committed to getting the best possible outcome for us.  With Brett’s assistance, we ended up agreeing on a price that we were happy with, particularly in a depressed market.  Following the offer and acceptance process, Brett kept us well informed on the progress through the conditions and the settlement process, right up to settlement.

Upon reflection of our initial expectations, we feel that Brett Johnston certainly exceeded these and would highly recommend his services to anyone considering selling their property".
