Having decided to sell our house in Richmond, it was crucial that we hired a real estate agent that wanted to get us the fairest and best deal that was possible for our property, and who was willing to work for and with us.
We met with several agents and it felt like it was all about the quick sale, with a sales approach that meant a hefty outlay of money for advertising (we were shocked at the excessive advertising costs that they quoted us, these costs ranged between $3,000 up to $5,000!).
In amongst all the agents we met, there was one agent who stood out with his friendly and positive attitude, his honesty and his enthusiastic approach to the sale of our property, not to mention, to our shock and surprise that no advertising costs were involved either before or after the sale of the property. The agent was Neil Wilson from 'Wilson Real Estate'.
Neil actually went away after we first met him and researched properties in our suburb AND surrounding suburbs that were similar to ours, so that he could get a fair price guide for us. He then explained that the ONLY cost for us would be his professional fee after the sale.
The beauty of this is that if Neil cannot achieve the minimum price he says he can, then his professional fee automatically becomes negotiable, and the seller and Neil can sit down and determine what they consider is a fair fee to pay, if anything at all, as he advertises. This was a bonus for us, and combined with Neil's approach and no advertising fees, we felt confident with having Neil as our agent.
Neil explained his sales strategy clearly to us, and let us know that we would work together to get the sale done, and he would be flexible in his approach to the sale, which he was. Also, Neil would always return calls, make time to meet with us if necessary, and would always keep us informed on any new developments that were taking place.
Throughout the campaign to sell our house, Neil remained positive and was reassuring through those anxious moments that can pop up when selling a house. His approach to selling the property was successful and the sale was completed within an 8 week period at a time when the market was said to be struggling. Neil achieved a price for us that all parties involved were happy with, and we saved several thousand dollars along the way by trusting him with the advertising approach he took.
Neil has a strong work ethic and a great belief that there are several buyers for every property, you just have to look for them, and sometimes you have to be a bit patient. Wilson Real Estate is a small family business and it created for us the feeling that the client is the most important part of a business.
I believe that I am an honest and grounded person who has strong family values, and I can see those same characteristics in Neil. He was good to his word throughout the sale process. With confidence, I can say that Neil will work hard to achieve the best possible result for you and your family, and I would highly recommend that you consider using Wilson Real Estate if looking to sell your property.
It was a pleasure to get to know Neil and I would happily use his services again.
