Went beyond our expectations

Selling a home is obviously a highly stressful time for any vendor. Usually giving your trust to an agent leaves you highly vulnerable to circumstances outside your control. We were in this position. The market was moving in the wrong direction and we were making decisions which were going to be highly impactful on the result. I am sure there are plenty of friendly polite professional agents out there and Derek is equal to all the good ones. What we received from Derek, which was above those benchmarks, was genuine and expert support to achieve an appropriate sale outcome. We felt Derek was as invested in acheiving the right result as we were. We got to appreciate Derek as our trusted advocate and at no time did he take an action that did not have our best interests in mind. In short I would highly recommend Derek to any prospective vendor not only from a service perspective but even more importantly from a trust perspective.

A great agent with heart

We were so pleased with the way Derek went about the business of selling our home. In fact we felt it was more than just a transaction to Derek. He genuinely cared for us as people and was prepared to go the extra mile (in so many ways) to ensure we achieved our goal or selling and moving to our new home. We highly recommend Derek without hesitation and have already passed his details on to friends looking to sell.

Exemplary service

Derek actually listened to our requirements and matched us to the perfect property. His service was second to none and he went out of his way to answer our questions and concerns. We were kept informed throughout the process and always felt he was respectful to both the vendor and ourselves. We cannot recommend Derek highly enough.

Fantastic worry free service

Derek had provided a first class service. His dedication and enthusiasm were obvious during our first meeting. He took time to explain the process. The whole experience of selling my house had been easy, pleasant and totally worry free. I have no hesitation in recommending Derek as an estate agent who is knowledgeable and hard working.
