Another great auction campaign by Allen Gunn competitive bidding on the day resulted in this home being Sold

Here's what the owners had to say|

"Choosing the right person to market your home is not an easy decision, unless you already have an open and trusting professional relationship with someone like Allen. Having had real estate dealings with Allen and his team for the past 15 years made him the obvious choice when we recently chose to sell our home. Allen has always been up front, honest and willing to go the extra distance in all our previous dealings with him, so he was the obvious choice for us - and once again, he did not disappoint.

Allen, assisted by his fantastic team, made the sale process of our home very simple for us, with good advice, an honest appraisal, and wonderful feedback at all stages of the process. That a great result was achieved is testament to the hard work Team Gunn put in fo us. All prospective purchasers were contacted to ensure he got their honest opinions of our home, and their reactions and thoughts were passed onto us promptly. I believe his ability to reach a rapport with all parties is one of the reasons our home created so much interest, and why we achieved the positive sales result we were seeking. Allen's communication to us was exemplary, and never once did he inflate our expectation. We would strongly recommend that you employ Allen's services, if you are after an honest, no nonsense approach to the sale of your property. We will continue to use his services and seek his advice in all real estate matters

Read, dear friend
Once again, when it really mattered, you delivered! Thank you very much for selling Mum’s house the way you did. Your valuation was proof of your intimate knowledge of the market, your advice clear and sound, your work on the campaign was outstanding and the communication couldn’t have been any better. The result exceeded our expectations!
It has been a pleasure to do business with you – for the third time.
Thank you very much

This campaign was run by Sue Barrell and after the first open home she got an acceptable offer for the owners. Yes, it was quick but the sellers were delighted that they could now move on to their next venture.

Here's what the owners had to say

We approached Sue to sell out home in May. Right from the very beginning she was professional throughout all aspects of the selling process.
We knew it was going to be very emotional for our family knowing that this house was the “ family home “ . Sue was very sensitive to that and made the process easy for everybody. She displayed, told us, shared and encouraged how best to get our house and present it ready for the market.
Our house SOLD very quickly and I know this was a reflection on her experience and guidance through the whole selling experience .We were really happy and highly recommend Sue to anyone who is considering selling.

This campaign was run by Sue Barrell and after the first week she presented a  ‘multi offer ‘ of 7 contracts to her owners.
Needless to say they were impressed.

Here's what the owners had to say

We bought our long sought-after family home through agent Sue Barrell. We were so impressed with her professionalism that we also contracted her to sell our property.
Throughout the process she was respectful, efficient and we appreciated her honesty and attention to detail.
She was there to support us through every aspect of buying and selling; from marketing a property through to final settlement.
We would thoroughly recommend Sue Barrell to anyone who seeks an agent who prides herself on her work ethic, market knowledge, industry experience and ability to deliver results.

This campaign was run by Karon Miller and after one week of being on the market there was a multi-offer and was sold within two weeks well over asking price. See the testimonal from the very happy vendors below:
After meeting with Karon some years ago, we determined that when selling our home, she would be our agent. Three weeks ago our faith in her was realised. Her friendly professional manner and sound knowledge of the market resulted in a rapid sale. We can honestly recommend her in all aspects concerning real estate.

Recent Success Stories - In Our Owners Words :

There are not enough of the right words to express the amount of stress Karon relieved from at us at an overwhelming time. She has sold two homes for us in the past and purchased one for us. Her ability to go above and beyond is incredible. The recent home we sold was at a stressful time and we can never thank her enough for the professional and amazing outcome she achieved for us. The work and the support of the Harcourts Bishopdale Office and Karon Miller are flawless. We will only ever sell or buy real estate through Karon Miller and the Harcourts Bishopdale office as the process and outcome were exceptional.
