Bayleys has provided us with a highly professional service which we consider assisted greatly with the speedy sale of our property. Shona Jurlina undertook an excellent job for us, going the extra mile in the marketing of our property. She advised us on how to present the property, maximised the marketing budget and worked tirelessly in introducing prospective purchasers. Thank you Shona for your hard work.

When we bought our new property we were sufficiently impressed by Shona Jurlina, that we elected to use her to manage the sale of our own house. We were not disappointed. Shona gave excellent advice on optimal marketing strategy and produced effective advertising resulting in very well attended open homes. She was helpful with ideas for presenting the house and thorough in following up potential purchasers. Throughout she kept us well informed with regular meetings and detailed updates on the program. She was always cheerful and pleasant to deal with and we would happily use her services again.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation for all the work you put into the auctioning of my property. The sale price achieved exceeded my expectations. Your marketing strategy, with three open homes backed by cleverly chosen advertising selections, was outstanding. Your excellent communication with me throughout the process gave me great confidence that your enthusiasm and professionalism would carry the day. The result was a great credit to you, Shona and that clever auctioneer Daniel. Once again, a big thank you.
Shona Jurlina recently marketed and sold at auction our much loved lifestyle property. We found her efforts fantastic in respect of marketing our property and communication to us on buyer feedback and market response. She was enormously helpful in making the process as stress free for us as it can be during the open homes and entire marketing period. We found her to be refreshingly honest, trustworthy and knowledgeable about our particular type of property buyer. We would recommend her to any prospective seller or buyer and would use her again ourselves. We would also recommend Bayleys Auctioneer Daniel Coulson as he did a fabulous job at auction. We were extremely impressed by the facts on our property he had on auction day and the way he sold it.
Shona Jurlina recently sold our property in Barrett Road Coatesville at a price which exceeded our expectations. We had had the property on with a few other companies but had not received an offer we had lost some confidence in the market place. We then listed with Shona who presented us with a very realistic marketing plan and who gave us the confidence back in our property. We were very impressed with Shona's level of communication and strong understanding of the market place. It was difficult for Shona as there were a number of parties who owned the property and her level of professionalism when dealing with all of the parties was outstanding and transparent. Shona ensured she communicated effectively with all parties at all times and ensured we had all the information required. Shona worked very hard to get the right buyers through our property and never gave up but were determined to get the right outcome for our family. We felt very supported by Shona throughout the process. When the property did sell it was a drawn out negotiation which Shona handled expertly with the outcome being a price over our expectations and very happy sellers but also very happy buyers. I would not hesitate to recommend Shona to anyone who wants professional realtors who understand the market, have expert negotiation skills and who will work hard until she has sold your property.
