Travers sold our home in Birkenhead Point in March 2018. This was a slower market than normal and we were anxious about the outcome. While the end result surpassed our expectations, what surprised us the most was that the marketing and sales process was also an enjoyable experience. We have bought and sold a number of properties over the years and found that the standard of real estate agents varies greatly. Travers was outstanding and by far the best agent we have ever worked with. He has excellent communication skills, works hard and simply took all of the pressure off us. He gave great advice on what to do to ensure our property was presented as well as possible and provided recommendations of people that could help us. The photography, videography, home-staging and marketing of the property was exceptional. Travers provides extra reach through the Barfoot & Thompson network and social media marketing. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Travers.
Ross and Andrea Anuzis
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Travers. We were impressed with how he took the time to establish a relationship with us many months before we were even contemplating selling, a real tribute to his perseverance. Through his regular correspondence with us we were able to stay connected with the market, particularly in our area, making the decisions of when and how to sell effortless. Despite our own decision-making in the process prior to signing up with Travers, he still took the time to go over all of the options and costs - a tribute to his professionalism and marketing experience. He ensured we had all of the relevant information and it was evident that he was committed to transparent and honest communication and expectations throughout the process. We received regular updates on progress and feedback eg numbers to open homes and responses to online marketing. We feel that Travers negotiated well and worked hard on our behalf with buyers as this was evident during the auction process re numbers attending/bidding and the desired price achieved. We found the whole selling process to be stress-free and this was supported by Travers having a very relaxed, respectful and focussed style, totally free of sales 'chatter' and unrealistic promises.
We would definitely use Travers to sell our home again and would recommend him highly to buyers and sellers alike.
