Agency Overview
Many real estate businesses will claim to be the best, but results are the only real proof.

Marketing Plan
The current market is performing very well and for this reason alone an auction should be considered as the preferred method of sale. The auction method leaves the outcome open whilst also accelerating the sale process by placing a closing date on the marketing process, this really does compel buyers to make a buying decision prior to the auction date, which can create a heighten the sense of urgency and excitement in the buyers minds and ultimately help in achieving a premium price.)

"Duncan's attention to detail is incredible, From his initial visit to well after the auction, Duncan covered everything. I’d done a fair bit of on-line research regarding property values in the area, but I must admit the figure Duncan came up with was much more than the family thought possible, he really knows his property values. An impressive initiative was when ALL Hocking Stuart sales reps from the Western Suburbs came to view the property to assist with a $ value range for the auction advertisements. As Duncan explained we had not one agent marketing for us, we had over a dozen. So, all in all, a flawless month leading up to the auction. Auction day: Great marketing initiatives by having free water, soft drink and even a coffee cart outside the property to get potential bidders in the right mood. The auctioneer took 60 bids before the hammer fell. Fantastic result. Well above our conservative reserve and thousands above what we had expected. Just wish I had a few more for Duncan

“I have just sold my House through hockingstuart Altona and I all I can say is what a great experience this was. This was mainly due to Duncan McMillan. He made this stressful time a pleasant experience for myself and my family and took all the stress out of selling. His professionalism and attention to detail was second to none. He was on the ball with everything and kept us up to date after every open house (would call 5 mins after the open had closed) and was always available on the phone. Every week he would send a weekly feedback report on the Open houses which let us know what potential buyers were thinking about our house. If we needed anything it was no trouble for him to come round, even in his own time. All of this payed off as we sold our house in 3 weeks with a offer we could not refuse and this was all down to Duncan who excelled himself. By the end of the process Duncan was more of a family friend than estate agent. I would highly recommend hockingstuart Altona and in par

After a bad experience with another real estate agent, we moved our property to Duncan McMillan at Hocking Stuart. From our first phone call with Duncan to the moment we sold the property, we could not have been happier with his professionalism and commitment to getting the best result possible. Duncan was proactive, genuine and transparent, and we were impressed with the level of communication (including while we were overseas for a month). Duncan went above and beyond to achieve a great outcome for us and we would recommend him to anyone who is looking to make the sale of a property a pleasant and stress-free experience.
