Alan Keyes shares how choosing the wrong agent can cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars
Hello my name is Alan Keyes, I am the owner of 53 Flood Street and we have recently sold this property through Ozway Realty.
Our previous agents, who shall not be named but there a very large well known brand on the market, managed to achieve an offer for us of $1,500,000 which we refused, which wasn’t enough.
Ozway Realty managed to realise a price for us of $1,640,000 and a very short settlement time.
Their straight forward attitude and honesty, was very much appreciated as previously we’d been with another agent who had recommended that we put it on the market for an expected price of $1.6m to $1.8m.
Anthony Hersch tried to sell with a “Big Local Agent” that cost him thousands and months of lost time!
Hi, I’m Anthony, my wife and I have a little baby who was the mitigating factor for us to be looking to sell and move onto the next property with a bit of space for her to run around outside.
Looking around we looked at a number of different agencies looking at what there offerings were, looking at there commission rates but also very much looking at the way they ran there campaigns.
And what we found was really different when we decided to go with Ozway was really there approach and that’s really what got us sold.
The other agency, being a larger agency, uses print media as one of the driving forces, primarily, I think to promote their own businesses as opposed to promoting my property. And we ended up spending about $6,000 on the campaign with no results and as we spoke about before no real offers.
Where with Ozway they came through with a much more favourable quote.
