Luton is a local company, established in Canberra in 1999. At that time, Director Richard Luton was already a formidable presence in the Canberra real estate market, as he set out with a dream to create a business based on his vision of 'putting the person back into real estate' - providing a personal and knowledgeable service tailored to individual client needs - a vision that still guides Team Luton today.
Over the last fifteen years, Richard, his Co-Directors, and his team of experienced sales and property management consultants have achieved significant results right across the Canberra region. Tailored marketing campaigns, outstanding client service, and excellent communication and negotiation between vendor and buyer are key to our success.
As the largest privately owned agency in Canberra, we offer our clients unequalled and consistent service from all of our eight offices, covering Canberra completely. We are one company with one Principal and a strong team of Co-Directors providing strategic direction.
This consistency provides significant benefits to you - saving time, money and ensuring you have the right information - every time. Sales success is due to many factors - outstanding client service, a highly-trained team and deep market knowledge are top of our list. What makes Luton different is the active involvement of the Director, Richard Luton and each of his Co-Directors - Richard Keeley, Tim and Justine Burke, David Konig, Ben Oostermeyer, Tim McInnes, Jason Roses and Christine Bassingthwaighte - all top sales performers in their own right, with ongoing active involvement in the business.
We trust that you too will experience more with Luton.
Today, close to 100 highly-trained and knowledgeable staff provide the full range of real estate services across eight locations Canberra-wide. Since re-branding to become Luton, our expert advice remains available on a range of issues including the variety of auction methods and private treaty negotiation options and our expert sales and property management teams consistently achieve exceptional results including:
- 220 record suburb sales in total since 1999
- More than 9850 homes sold in over 14 years
- Over 370 sales in excess of $1 million dollars
- Over 1200 properties currently under management
Sales experience and business management abilities have seen Luton grow from a boutique agency into one of the most successful agencies in Canberra. Committed to the community that supports us, we actively support our local community through a broad ranging community service program. This is lead by our flagship event, the Luton Charity Ball, raising money for a selected charity each year. In 2013 our annual charity ball raised over $83,000 for the Canberra Hospital Foundation. In addition to the annual charity ball, community support is provided to smaller groups throughout Canberra. We regularly participate in other charity balls, purchase corporate tables and buy and donate auction items. Annually, our auctioneers, as a group, donate significant time to fundraising auction events.
Our continued corporate support of smaller community groups, such as the ACT Organ and Tissue Donation Service, specifically reflects our corporate philosophy to provide help and support regardless of size or might. Our agents carry this same core community commitment through to their daily lives and business practice. By participating in events at Canberra schools and supporting local care-based groups such as Marymead, the ACT Cerebal Palsy Alliance and the Salvation Army, we help raise the profile of important issues affecting our community. Luton is committed to Canberra and its people. Through his overarching commitment to 'putting the person back into real estate' - which includes valuable community support - Richard and the team at Luton look forward to working with you to achieve your real estate results into the future.
To discuss a selling strategy that is suited for you we would need to discuss the property and what you are hoping to achieve in greater detail. I am trained in all methods from auction by negotiation to the different price strategies. Without talking to you it would be unprofessional to decide which method will work best for you and your situation.
I am happy to discuss more via email to work out what is the best option for you. For this process I have had to select a marketing fee, this is based on average your property man need more or less but this is the average most of my owners invest to secure the premium buyer.

Apologies for the late response. We've been meaning to put together something earlier. I guess there's no excuse rather than we've been rather slack.
We've finally settled in now. There just never seems to be enough time in a day to do anything.
Feel free to give us a call if you are ever in the area and are more than welcome to pop over for a coffee.
Our testimonial below;
"Sarah was a breathe of fresh air when she took over the sale of our house. From the first day we meet her, Sarah was full of energy and gave us a positive outlook about her ability to sell our property. She constantly kept us updated and was always looking at different marketing strategies to attract potential buyers to the property. We will definitely recommend Sarah's services to our family and friends who are looking at either selling or buying a property."

We want to say thank you for the great experience we had selling our home through your real estate agency.
From the start to finish it was a pleasant experience.
We appreciate the time you took to meet with us regularly and keep us updated on the process of the sale of our home.
We were thrilled with the outcome of the sale after only 3 weeks on the market.

I would like to thank you for the professional and personal way that you handled the sale of my property in Palmerston,
I am grateful for the advice that you provided to me and the effort that you put in to achieve a fantastic price in what I consider to be a depressed market.
I also really appreciate the assistance that you provided me in securing a rental property on the South Coast. With no references or rental history, I am sure that without your assistance, I would have had much more trouble.
I wish you all the best in your future career; I know that you will do very well. It was a pleasure to have you sell my home and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone else.
