I am delighted to provide a testimonial for Glenn. He has recently sold my house and also helped me find a new property, and I would recommend him to you as a real estate professional in every sense of the word. The qualities that set Glenn apart are values based interactions with individuals and a personal approach where Glenn truly seeks to understand your needs as a vendor or purchaser. It’s his attention to detail and his constant support and communication in ways you do not expect. His tenacity in finding and securing the right buyer for my property was outstanding and my expectations were exceeded at auction due to his advice and strategy with several potential buyers. Thank you Glenn! You made a very stressful process easier for me and were always on hand with good advice for the maze of detail required to successfully navigate this process.
“We met Glenn and Lindy a long time ago when we were deciding whether to sell or extend our house. We found them friendly, helpful and unlike your typical real estate agent. When deciding to sell 10 years later we went straight to them because they have an ethical approach and strong knowledge of the local area. They made the process easy, kept us informed at every step and supported our decisions. It’s thanks to their efforts that we were able to sell so quickly for a good price and make the next move. We’d recommend them to anyone seeking a positive sales experience.”

“I would like to acknowledge the work you carry out for both your clients and the people you employ. Recently, I attended the auction of a property you were marketing. I witnessed your well-honed work ethic as you worked to achieve the best possible result for your vendor. It takes years to achieve the skill that you demonstrated. Your measure and comfortable demeanour put people at ease in what is often a stressful situation. You can be justifiably proud of your outstanding sales record and as someone who understands the auction process as I do – you are a master from presentation to process.”
“Glenn was recommended to me by a neighbour as a skilled and experienced agent. I am very pleased I chose him as he proved to be professional in every way. Glenn is warm and friendly, he kept me informed both verbally and in written form while utilising his wide range of contacts to attract a large amount of people to the auction. This enabled me to retain the best possible price for the house. I consider Glenn to be very professional, ethical and would happily recommend him to anyone.”
