(Responses to Quality Assurance Surveys)
Definitely, as a first home buyer with no experience, it is very daunting. Alf was great, he made me feel more comfortable and brought to my attention many issues?
Yes, we contacted Alf after becoming uncomfortable with the offer we had put on a house. He assured us we could resubmit and took over our side of the negotiations.
Certainly more. Alf gave us the confidence to make some tough decision.
Yes – we employed a buyer advocate as the vendors were acting without an agent (private sale) and we wanted some expert advice and help with negotiation.
Yes, also educational for us. We learnt from Alf about how to see properties. We could solidify our image of what sort of properties we really want to have.
Yes, it was a pleasure buying with Alf. Gave us a much greater insight and knowledge of what and where we were buying. It made us much more comfortable in our decision making.
Negotiating power. I purchased the property at the lowest possible price. Issues I did not understand were made clear.
Having had no experience in negotiating the purchase of a house before, the benefit for us of having Alf’s representation was the peace of mind of knowing that he was experienced in the process, was looking out for our best interest and was able to give us relevant and useful information.
For us, it was important to have an expert opinion to help us find a way through the many alternatives. It was also a great benefit to have an expert bidder on Auction Day.
Knowing the real estate agent would have to take us seriously. Would not have got it by myself so am very glad we used you.
Independent advice and honest informed opinion on properties being viewed; knowledgeable person representing us at auction; advice on price / value of properties based on experience.
Not dealing directly with the vendor (private sale); confirmation of valuation of property: less stressful; knowledge of legal requirements.
Making the right decision: we never regret or be unsure about what we bought; quick procedure; did not have to worry about reading difficult legal documents; cost: we saved much more than we thought.
Alf could see the factors affecting our choices more clearly than we could.
Definitely, Alf saved me thousands.
Definitely – we had initially made an offer several thousand dollars above what we ended up paying and we almost certainly would have gotten cold feet and ended up pulling out.
I don’t think we would have been so successful so quickly, nor would we have secured such a good property.
We think we would have been more likely to buy the wrong property or less likely to succeed.
Yes – the negotiation skills were beyond anything we would have been confident to do (private sale).
With Alf’s help, we could buy the house we actually first missed.
We would have certainly have paid more than necessary. Alf’s knowledge of the bidding process was more astute than ours.
We would and we have
Yes, Alf is professional, efficient, knowledgeable and provided us with peace of mind.
Alf is very enthusiastic and takes an interest in his clients.
I can’t express how grateful we are to Alf…
Fantastic service which ended up saving us money and or making a costly mistake.
