• I interviewed 6 agents in Mt lawley – Harcourts, Beaufort Reality, Stuart Weston, Acton, Irving and Keenan, Ray White
• Was impressed with Beaufort Reality (female agent), Ray White (female agent) and Jayson Watson (Irving and Keenan)
• I was originally considering a + 850K sell price, after reviewing the market and the quality of the renovations – I thought that we could push the envelope to above 900k with the right agent
Jayson was the only agent who had the true confidence, the vision and personal enthusiasm to want to push the envelope. His style and presentation of himself mirrored the property, which I found to be an extension to what had been achieved with the renovation
I also found Jayson believable, genuinely enthusiastic, and balanced between seller and purchaser needs (at the end of the day the agent brings the two needs together and finds the line on which both parties can accept the deal)
The property sold within 16 hours for $925K (next door sold for around $770) – which was a new record for that size property on Guildford road
In my circumstance the property had to be immaculate and well presented which was my job, Jayson’s job was the get potential buyers pass Guildford road and sold – to be honest with you I had complete confidence with Jayson from my first meeting with him– I allowed him to structure the strategy and run his show - for me that is unique – I am a project manager responsible for building mines with very tight deadlines and enormous budgets and can have the responsibility for upward of 3000 people – My approach is to give people responsibility (a go) but keep a close mentoring eye on them and provide support, remove them if they do want try, have no enthusiasm and do not provide similar attitude to subordinates - seldom do I find a person I can give total confidence to immediately in the role assigned – In his profession, Jayson is one
On behalf of my wife and I, I would like to pass on to the Principals of Irving & Keenan my thanks to your real estate agency. The exceptional, professional, friendly service that we received from Jayson in all matters relating to our recent sale of 10A Camden St and purchase of 192 Salisbury St Bedford was outstanding. Jayson went above and beyond the normal call of duty to resolve every issue relating to the sale and purchase of the properties, right up until to settlement. It was reassuring to know that we were in good hands, so I will certainly be recommending your real estate agency (and Jayson) to anyone in the future.
