John's smiling face, integrity and reputation was well known to us. The added bonuses of efficiency, expertise, assistance and guidance we received from him and his excellent team was second to none. This great choice for market place knowledge, daily updates and precision timing helped us achieve an excellent sale outcome. We will probably now buy from him too!

L Reinhardt

As a purchaser I found that John kept me informed of properties that matched my criteria in my search for a property. During the campaign for the property that I was successful in purchasing John kept in touch but without being overbearing. I am sure that the vendor for this property was very happy with the outcome.

L Kriznar

John has been extremely professional, highly proficient and exuded a lot of confidence. From the moment John saw my property I knew I was in good hands. Any advice he gave was always in my best interest. I am very impressed with him and his team and will definitely use him again in the future. I highly recommend John and his team to anyone looking to sell their property.
