Professionally Guiding us Through Very Difficult Times to a Great Result. 

Having committed to purchasing a new house, we needed to sell our house by Mid June. Joe had been recommended to us by a very satisfied neighbour, and right from our first meeting we felt very comfortable with his approach and recommendations.

We had from beginning of May to the sale date. The first wave of the Corona virus had hit Melbourne. Of course we very worried about what this would do to property prices. Joe kept us well informed of market movements and remained confident that prices would hold for good properties.

As time elapsed and the first wave of the Corona virus waned slightly, Joe strategised with us on changing the potential sale date and the sale method. He felt that we should take advantage of the feeling of relief and the return of auctions to the market (they had been restricted up to then). He advised moving quickly to auction and he was able to reschedule his company to enable this.

In the week prior to the auction Joe ran through the likely flow of the auction and how we could expect it to go. He made sure that we understood all the decision points.

On the day, he was uncannily accurate, and the auction was a great success. The sale proceeds were higher than our reserve, which was amazing given the circumstances of the time..

Joe's cool, knowledgeable, and thoughtful professionalism guided us through one of the worst periods for the property market in recent experience.
