We had a personal recommendation for John and are glad we utilised his services for our recent purchase in Ashgrove. From our initial meeting, his structured approach to discovering our needs, mapping these to the ground and educating us on the Brisbane market proved invaluable. Being interstate buyers with a very limited window of opportunity to purchase, John was able to compress viewings onto a handful of days and meet our tight timeline. We were difficult customers in that we saw value in many properties – renovators, renovated and under development – and John aided us in heuristics and data to compare them. John's negotiation secured our property for well under its initial listing price. On any of the points here his fee was good value; the combination of all resulted in an excellent outcome for us. We are happy to provide our endorsement and have done so personally already to others considering a move to Brisbane.
Buying a property felt like a task we weren't ready for. After we engaged John at East 153 Buyers Agents, finding our family home was a breeze. John helped us define our property objective and made sure we stuck to it through the entire process. As a result we stayed true to what we really needed and wanted in a property. I was amazed how much I learnt about property from John's analyses and I felt confident in our choices the entire way. When it got to the negotiation process on our preferred property we knew John had our best interests in mind. Engaging East 153 to help us find our family home not only saved us tens of thousands of dollars, it also kept us from experiencing the stress and anxiety that comes with buying property.
I engaged John from East 153 Buyers Agents to assist me with finding a home after making an interstate move to Brisbane. John helped me realise that understanding what I truely valued in a home was one of the most important parts of the buying process. After taking the time to guide me through a process to determine what was important to me, to understand my financial position and to provide insights into the property market, John was able to find me a property I loved at a price I could afford. John's negotiation strategy and complete engagement in the negotiation process resulted in a purchase price I was exceptionally happy with. I found that being able to stand behind John's experience and a strong and proven buying strategy took away a lot of the stress that I would normally have experienced when buying my dream home.
I had never considered using a Buyer’s Agent until a friend suggested that we engage one. I was confident that it was the right decision after speaking to John on the phone in our first consultation. Within minutes John had reviewed our proposed property, given me a local market appraisal and had started forming a strategy in order to move forward. John was ethical and direct and I trusted that he had our best interests at heart. I would definitely engage him again and for me the justification is in the results. He secured our property in a very competitive market and we got it for a lot less than we were willing to pay.
