I found Mick and Emily a pleasure to deal with As we had never sold a house before I found their never-ending patience with my seemingly endless questions absolutely amazing. On occasions, I found the process of selling a little stressful but they were both so reassuring that helped immensely. Would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone.
My tenant suddenly gave notice as COVID hit and I had to get my property ready for market - while being 2000km away! Mick and his team were super helpful in making it happen and I was very happy with the end result. Can not recommend him more highly! Thanks, Mick and team!
Jim knew the market and he helped us tremendously when we were selling. He advised us on things we should do before we put the house on the market. He knew the market well and it became apparent to us after we had sold that he was respected by agents from rival real estate businesses. He was always punctual and he followed things up with potential buyers. The thing which most impressed me about Jim and Mick was when they came to look at the property they looked at both the house and the cottage in detail and then went around the whole garden. If you have a house with a garden, they are a must because they are so knowledgeable about gardens.
Having sold quite a few homes over the years, l would have to say Jan Brewster is, without doubt, the best agent l have ever dealt with. She is very passionate and knowledgeable about what she does. From helping us choose the right stylist to make sure the marketing and photography were up to her exacting standards. We were kept well informed of interest and feedback throughout the campaign. Selling with Jan Brewster and First National was one of the best decisions we have ever made. If you want exceptional and professional service, we could not recommend Jan highly enough
Grant is an experienced and dedicated professional. He understood the features of our unique home and was able to get them across to interested people. Communication was always timely and relevant. I highly recommend Grant for anyone selling a house in the beautiful Dandenong’s.
