Wow I have learnt a lesson with the person who will get you the best price not the person who reduces their commission- In the end this was a false economy costing me additional money in marketing and the loss of the property I had an offer on. I met Jo-Ann in August 2018 and liked her straight away. However I choose to make a decision based on cost went elsewhere. Big mistake! The house didn’t sell and in truth wasn’t sure the agent I had chosen was really upselling my home or just hoping it would sell. I gave Jo-Ann a call and despite the fact I had previously chosen another agent she took on the challenge of marketing my home even after I had potentially made her job even harder- but being the professional she is she did it- she sold my home and for more money that my previous agent had even listed it for. I couldn’t be more grateful for the service of her and her team (Victoria), her straight forward supportive nature and the fact she kept me constantly informed which gave me enormous comfort. Would I recommend her to another? A big fat yes! As a sales person myself I respect the consummate sales person she was for me and I truly have grown to like her! Thank you, Thank you for doing what others couldn’t! - Lynley

I believe a wise person selling a property now days needs professional help and advice and that is exactly what I got from Harcourts and Jo-Ann. I was looking for guidance and advice on presenting and marketing my property and Jo-Ann came up trumps. - Wayne
