I couldn’t have asked for a more devoted team in trying to get me the best price possible at all times. I would highly recommend your company to any prospective clients. Feel free to allow them to contact me if they so wish.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Max,
My husband and I would like to thank you for managing the sale of our property at 16 Evans St Anglesea so expeditiously.
We appreciate your professional approach throughout the process. You accurately predicted the market value of the property, which was not easy given the uniqueness of the property. You adopted a pragmatic approach to the marketing campaign and showed considerable ingenuity by organising use of the drone and tapping into the Melbourne market through one of your affiliates. When negotiating the sale, you were able to bring both of the parties together to achieve common objectives. You also went above and beyond by assisting the vendor with the accounting aspects of the sale.
As selling this house was very significant for us, we found it particularly helpful the way you kept us informed throughout the whole process.
We wish you much success with your Real Estate business.
Kind regards

The decision was made to sell our family home of over 50 years. We searched the Surfcoast area for a real estate agency with whom we felt comfortable and would get the best possible price, but wouldn't swamp us with sales double talk. We were looking for an experienced, honest, hard working, enthusiastic, straight shooting agency. We found all that in Surfcoast Real Estate at Anglesea.

The Agencys’ philosophy is based around giving priority to the Owners needs. This can be difficult to put into practice as it takes two parties to make a sale. However, we were comfortable that Surfcoast RE got this balance right. Their 'estimated Sale Price range' was the highest we received and the price obtained was at the top-end of the range.

We were delighted with their approach to selling our property. They were extremely enthusiastic, hard working, providing excellent communication throughout the selling process and good feedback about prospective Buyers' opinions and likelihood of bidding.
