Place is a modern and progressive brand with a strong focus on customer service and property marketing excellence. The Place point of difference is a combination of a strong, respected brand and innovative marketing strategies that provide maximum exposure and value for money for vendors. We operate from key Brisbane locations including Aspley, Kenmore, Ascot, Bulimba, Graceville, Newmarket, New Farm and Paddington. Unlike other franchise groups our offices work together to service our clients. We achieve this through our full colour weekly magazine, "Places', our weekly email to each offices entire database, known as ‘Fresh Place’, and every property listed at Place is displayed in our electronic windows.
Have you seen our weekly Place's magazine, Mini's on the road or been into one of our cafe Style offices?
Whilst these items look impressive and display our professional approach, it is the back office and corporate structure approach that really sets Place apart. We are a full service agency. Each Place office has an in house marketing team. Each agent has access to qualified sales support assistants. This means that every resource needed to get your property into the market accurately and professionally is done by our award winning team. Importantly this frees your agent up to do what you have employed them to do, talk to as many buyers as possible and negotiate a great outcome on your behalf.
Place has a heavy emphasis on training and culture along with recognizing the achievements of our people. Recently Place was awarded the 2009,2010,2011,2012 and 2015 REIQ Agency of the Year. This is no doubt in response to the service Place provides to its valued clients each and every day.
I am 32 years old, have been selling real estate for 9 years and I love every thing about it. If you want your property sold I will make it happen.
Very few agents in Brisbane can match John’s level of integrity and commitment to his clients. An award winning agent with over nine years’ experience in the real estate market in Brisbane, John now resides locally in the beautiful suburb of McDowall, having chosen to relocate his young family there to enjoy and contribute to the fantastic local community.
John came from humble beginnings as a fifth-generation Dayboro dairy farmer. Covering everything from “$400,000 houses that people want renovate, to $10 million riverfront mansions”, John loves the diversity that the Brisbane property market offers, and particularly loves the McDowall and the surrounding areas, having bought their first home and moving here some time ago with his young family. Hard work, early mornings and late nights are all just a part of life for John from his farming days, so working around the clock to get great results for his clients is something that he’s not only willing to do, but prides himself on.
“It is such a privilege to come into someone's home and see what they have done to it,” says John, “I had sold a couple's home and was helping them buy another, but they would only look through properties if I was with them, because they trusted that I’d look out for their best interests. We looked through 40 houses before we found 'the one'. The couple, whose photo in front of their 'sold' sign sits proudly on John's desk, is just one of his many satisfied clients.
Disciplined, focused and cool under pressure, John is also a leading figure in Australia's Tae Kwon-Do fraternity - competing for the past 21 years, the former champion and national coach still runs classes with participants aged from children to grandparents.
Married to his beautiful wife Stephanie and enjoying all the excitement of being parents to their two young children Oliver, and Elijah, John understands the pressures of modern life, and is always available to talk real estate, and answer any questions or assist in any way needed.
The marketing of the property can vary significantly depending on the urgency of the Owners, however key features stay the same such as Professional Photos, copy writing, floor plans and of course top quality Brochures. What you spend is up to you and depends on individual circumstances, each property and each home owner is different, unique and each require individual marketing plans designed to meet their needs. I would love to meet with you to discuss all of the options available to you.
I also look forward to discussing the best selling strategy to meet you time frame, circumstances and requirements. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss all the options available to you.
John, thank you to you and your team for everything that you helped us to achieve with the sale of our house at Chapel Hill. With the three contracts you managed to secure and work through to completion on our behalf, it was comforting to know that we were dealing with a professional.
Your attitude and aptitude are head and shoulders above the other agents we have dealt with it the past. It has been great getting to know you and have recommended you to family and friends without hesitation.
What a wonderful feeling it is knowing that when it comes to real estate all we now have to now do is call you John and the rest will happen efficiently and effectively.
We wish you all the best for the future and are sure you will be the catalysis for many other happy stories like ours for other residents of Chapel Hill.
Hello John, as promised, please find attached three photos of an historic moment in our lives. Both Jacqui & I want to tell you how much we appreciate all of your valued assistance, in helping us to sell our present home, and move on into a new life adventure in Chapel Hill. We certainly have been most pleased with the professionalism demonstrated by you and the team, and cannot be too small in our praise to you.
You certainly made an otherwise traumatic experience into a most relieved one John.
Thanks Sincerely for that!
Jacqui & george Kirkman. XO from Jacqui, and a Handshake from me Mate
Alan and I would like to express our heartfelt thanks and delight with your success in the sale of our home. From when we first discussed the placement of our home on the market, to the completion of the sale some three months later, we were always very happy with your level of service, dedication and commitment to getting the job done, in a really tough, falling market. Even when we had lost confidence, you were still very optimistic and kept us going with your enthusiasm.
We were most impressed with the people to whom you introduced us in order to present the house at its best, the photographer, the handyman, the house cleaner – they were all a pleasure to deal with. In every regard, you were the consummate professional, and were very thorough once we had a suitable offer in order to make things progress as smoothly as possible
In an industry with a somewhat cloudy reputation, you stand out as a true professional - c
