We let our clients do the talking:
Graeme Walker did a really good job in selling this property.
Good advice in the listing on how wisely we spend the advertising dollar.
Well updated on progress after each open and settlement details.
He has a personable character which shines through as a trustworthy agent.
We found the Professionals – exactly that – professional!
Graeme Walker identified our needs immediately and was punctual, efficient, and clearly focused on the task, with the minimum of fuss.
His advice was spot on which gave us the confidence to leave all aspects up to him whilst we were busy elsewhere. I have already recommended his “no nonsense, just get the job done” approach to friends.
I am very happy with the way Kevin Barry handled the sale of my investment property in O’Sullivan Beach.
His service was helpful and has been ongoing – above and beyond.
I am happy with the amount I received for the home.
Thanks Kevin for a positive experience.
Graeme and I are both members of the Novar Gardens B/C. He is a very nice man. This, together with positive comments from other members who had property dealings with him (and promptly) engaged your firm.
I am very happy with the end result. Graeme was very helpful the whole time. He even came to my unit to go through documents I found difficult to understand.
Brian was given the job of selling Mum’s house at Christies Beach after the initial interview. He gave the impression of competency and knowledge.
The plan outlined to myself and my sisters left us in no doubt Brian took pride in his role. He covered all bases and had a plan for any eventuality.
Brian kept us informed at every step of the process. He obviously had everything under control. We were very pleased with the handling of the sale and would like to thank Brian for his efforts. We would be happy to recommend Brian in the future should this need arise.
As you know we gave the sale of the property to Gail as we have been friends for a long time and know she is a genuine hard working person. Having said that, if we weren’t happy we would have spoken up.
From the very beginning in bringing everyone on your team to inspect the property, to the regular open inspection including Thursday nights, to continuous emails, calls, SMS keeping us informed and making the sale happen through sheer determination.
I would say we will use Gail again and in fact we are already.
Andrew and Tracy
We chose Brian to sell our property because he provided comprehensive information about the market and comparable sales prior to listing our property. He was friendly, listened to us and wasn’t pushy. But our top priority in choosing a sales agent was someone who was honest and trustworthy, because being from interstate we couldn’t be there to oversee the sale. Brian didn’t let us down! We felt informed throughout the process and felt our sales was in trusted hands. Brian got us an offer within the first week. Brian went above and beyond preparing our house for sale and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone selling their property.
We greatly appreciate Brian Pounsetts’ hard work. Coming from the industry, I deal with agents all the time and Brian Pounsett is one of the best I have come across.
Colette and Jeffrey
Thank you for all your advice and “professionalism” I will certainly remember you next time I need help. Also remind others who are buying and selling.
Peter and Heather
Thank you for your great service and expertise in creating a smooth transition to the home purchase. We appreciate it greatly.
Neil and Jane
Brian gave me very good information on the process of selling. I was very impressed with the work the whole team did to promote my property and to ensure all the paperwork was completed promptly, efficiently, and correctly.
Brian kept me updated at every step. I was very pleased with the selling price and with the amount I received. I would recommend Brian Pounsett to everyone and would recommend the friendliness and efficiency of his staff.
From the minute we met Kevin, Andy and I felt very confident that he would work in our best interest without pressure and some of the real estate diatribe we have has in the past.
One of Kevin’s biggest attributes is his willingness to listen to the owners but also being prepared to direct them towards a strategy that will work for the owners and ultimately the sale of the property. It worked!
Ann and Andy
I want to pass on my heartfelt thanks for giving my son some hope. You gave him what others had taken away, and that was the belief in himself as a human being.
You supported him without question and helped him through one of the worst times in his life.
You made him feel like he wasn’t a bad person when others convinced him he was unworthy.
I don’t know what else I can say but I believe you came into his life just at the right time as happened to me when my mum passed away in 2015 just around the time (name undisclosed) life change for the worse.
Believe it or not the stress continues but thank you for helping him through the bad times.
My best wishes to you and your family always.
Both (name undisclosed) and I may never see you again, but you will remain in our thought forever.
Dear Kevin and the team of Christies Beach Professionals, I have found great difficulty in providing this feedback for 3 months, due to expressing in words correctly. The service you provided, under my personal circumstances at the time I made initial contact. At the time I contacted Kevin, I personally was in a position where I was overwhelmed with a settlement before the federal court. The courts had placed me in a position to immediately see the 2 properties. This included very strict guidelines/timeframes. Kevin and his team accepted this very difficult request. Immediately Kevin took full control of the sales, and eliminated the requirements placed upon me by the courts by, thoroughly understanding the conditions, then taking it upon himself to apply the courts requirements of the sales, and exceed far beyond my expectations, of sales industry standards. The sale of these two properties at the time were an impossible task for me to contemplate.
Kevin, however also realised this and the impact the two sales were personally having on me, with regards to my overall health due to other matters at the time.
By mentioning the above it assists me with providing the following feedback on he ‘Professionals’ service and overall process of the two properties sold.
1. From prior to properties being listed, Kevin went above and beyond with providing professional and honest advice to valid concerns I had. This was not required in the industry, however the time he spent was never rushed or related to financial gain.
2. With his advice as above, it was decided that Kevin would take on the two sales, knowing that he would be facing some difficult issues as mentioned. Kevin approached my circumstances with these particular sales, with no hesitation at all.
3. Kevin immediately began the sales marketing, without any delays or errors under the pressure imposed upon him.
4. Throughout the short duration of the properties selling by Kevin’s experiences, ethics, and professional attitude only. He exceeded his duties, by thorough communication at all times, with consistent updates and progress reports. Kevin also assisted with keeping third parties advised of the progress of sales, which helped me in ways that I can not explain.
5. Kevin achieved well above my high expectations, without me having to request at any time my expectations.
6. Kevin managed to sell the properties using his experience and skills at prices I never expected and in a beyond reasonable time frame.
I do not know how else to explain the positive impact Kevin had in my life at a time that was critical.
Thank you Kevin, does not cover what service you provided.
I found Graeme to be very attentive to all my requirements. He was very thorough in all our dealings. I commend him on two great sales for me and wouldn’t hesitate using him again in the future.
Tristan Edwards was our real estate agent. His perseverance and professional manner, saw us receive a settlement price beyond our expectations. Always bright, happy to deal with, helpful, nothing was too much trouble for him. Thanks again we would gladly deal with the Professionals again.
Tracie and Robert
Thank you for all the help you gave me. I give you 10+10. I’m very happy with my new house, almost settled. Thank you for all your help.
Yes very happy with the service Brian Pounsett provided to us. The house and land package would only appeal to a certain type of buyer which took time to find but with Brian’s help we reached our sale with (an) acceptable price.
Brian was always available with phone calls and advice until our place was sold.
Would be happy to use Brian again and happy to pass on his cards to anybody.
Kevin Barry and the Professionals Christies Beach did a sterling job on selling our investment property.
The sale was quick and Kevin achieved a great price exceeding our expectations.
A big thank you to Kevin, a true professional in his trade.
Graeme Walker was the agent who acted for us.
We found him most professional and efficient. Throughout the whole process he kept us up to date and was vigilant in following up interested parties.
We found him honest and very polite.
He is an asset to the “Professionals” and we would employ his services again and will.
Carolyn and David
Tristan Edwards was our Real Estate agent. His perseverance and professional manner saw us receive settlement price beyond our expectations. Always bright & happy to deal with. Helpful, nothing was too much trouble for him. Thanks again, we would gladly deal with the Professionals again.
Tracie & Robert
Yes, very happy with the service Brian Pounsett provided to us. The house + Land package would only attract a certain type of buyer which took time to find but with Brian’s help, we achieved our sale with acceptable price.
Brian was always available with phone calls and advice until our place was sold.
Would be happy to use Brian again and happy to pass on his cards to anybody, Very happy.
Mr and Mrs Henthow
Thank-you for all the help you gave me , I give you 10/10. I’m very happy with my new house, almost settled. Thank-you for all your help.
I would highly recommend Tristan Edwards to anyone. His down to earth professional approach was evident from the start.
Importantly he listened to me and my opinions on my house and the market and got a great feel and understanding about where I was coming from. He remained completely cool, calm and collected throughout negotiations even when asked a thousand questions by me about his strategy!! His patients in dealing with a number of parties, interested buyers and my partner and I (separately in some instances) as we are separated was second to none.
He strived high on the price (at my request) and came VERY close to delivering it. We are very happy with the result. He constantly called me with updates on his strategy and with how negotiations were progressing. I am not easily impressed so this review is even more impressive knowing how picky I am.
I would like you to now that we are very happy in our new house.
thanks again for all the help in selling our house so quick .You and your staff did a fantastic job. also with buying our new house. – Extract from testimonial. Full version available on request.
I recently received a request from your office to provide some feedback in relation to the sale of my house earlier in the year. I experienced a highly professional approach and outcome in relation to the sale of my Christies Beach property in early 2016.
The service was indeed first class!
Thank you once again,
Very happy with the service. A quick sale, reasonably priced and offers came close to our asking price.
Found Kevin to be realistic and kept communicating with us at all times.
Will definitely approach you again when we are ready to sell our last Southern property.
Anita and Craig
We are very happy at the service we got from the Professionals real estate. Everything went as planned and there was no long delays in the service. The real estate agent, Tristan was very helpful and reliable. We will be recommending the Professionals to anyone in the future.
I am very happy with the way Gail performed in the sale of my property, and I could not fault any of your staff from the girl who answers the phone, to anyone I spoke to. I would recommend Gail to any of my family and friends as she is very professional and a beautiful person.
A great job well done. Thank you.
It is with pleasure to be able to give feedback, on both rental handling and sales.
The sales person involved in the auction of my property did so with my interest in mind, giving me all options available during the bidding. Well done “Crew”.
As for the rentals, I find communication with your staff a pleasure and very helpful, giving me a full view of what is going on. Thank you Kristen, great to deal with.
The marketing and sale of my property was expertly researched and implemented by the team at The Professionals Christies Beach and I was extremely happy with the conduct of the auction and the result achieved.
The professionalised service we received from Kevin and his team was exceptional. He let us feel in control of the sale, whilst providing honest and helpful advice.
We would definitely recommend using the Professionals at Christies Beach.
Thanks for everything.
Aaron and Sam
It was a pleasure to do business with you, and we would be happy to do it again if we had a property we needed to sell in that area. We were very happy with the regular updates and encouragement to go for me best possible price in this current climate. We were able to rely and trust in Kevin’s word and vast experience, reducing the stress associated with selling the property. Thank you.
Kathy and Andrew
Thank you for your honesty, integrity, patients and optimism during the process of selling (our home). Such qualities are paramount when you are dealing with an interstate owner.
Because you had confidence in yourselves, you imbued me with similar confidence in a successful sale.
We would like to congratulate you and Nathaniel on the way you negotiated on our behalf of the sale of our property at Hallett Cove. As in the past, from previous sales you conducted yourself in a professional manner keeping us informed while focussing on our best interests at all times. You truly are a pleasure to do business with.
Eve and David
Our sales person was Brian Pounsett. I found he was most professional and personable. His knowledge and experience is tremendous and I believe that Brian is a wonderful attribute to your company. Of all the ‘other’ real estate companies sales staff we have spoken to over the last 2-3 years in our quest to find our dream home and with the selling of my home to make this happen, Brian has shown us the respect, enthusiasm and professionalism that has shone out over everyone else. He is a credit to your company.
We would like to thank you and your fellow staff at the Professionals Christies Beach for the very helpful and professional manner that you have conducted yourselves with the selling of our mother’s home. It has been with great regret that we have had to sell the family home but you have, at all times respected our feelings in this matter.
Dear (Mr) Barry, Thank you for your good wishes and I was very pleased with the prompt selling of my property. Everything was handled to my satisfaction and the sales person was very pleasant and helpful.
“We wouldn’t look elsewhere for land agents in the future and we wish to thank Kevin and his team for a job well done!”
Robert and Denise
We are very pleased with all aspects in the sale of our Morphett Vale property. Kevin Barry (Jnr) is a true gentleman, putting in 100% at all times.
He is completely trustworthy, has a GREAT personality; always courteous. We highly recommend him and in doing so the Professionals (Beach Road Christies) to all our friends and acquaintances when the subject arises. Well done Kevin (Jnr).
(We) were very impressed with Kevin’s professionalism and in-depth knowledge of local real estate. The initial cost estimate of expenses was accurate. When we were becoming discouraged, Kevin reassured us and throughout the entire process he was supportive and encouraging. In the end we achieved a price that we were happy with and that was realistic.
In regard to the feedback you requested on the sale of our property by Brian Pounsett, we could not have been more impressed with his professionals and successful manner with the sale of our house. We would highly recommend him to anyone contemplating selling their property.
Also we were impressed with the excellent management of the property whilst renting it out, managed by your office also. Especially appreciated the help and courteous manner (on) any queries we had when phoning your reception area also. Many thanks to you all.
David and Dawn
We were very happy from start to finish. James took excellent photos for the internet, Kevin & Kathy both opened our house ‘piggy backing’ with another on the Esplanade. The ads written for the Messenger and Advertiser were excellent – showing a true understanding of the property. Kevin was always available to show people. He did exactly what we asked him. He followed up prospective buyers. Because of his experience, he had a contract ready for the counter offer when he met with the eventual purchaser. We would definitely recommend him to anyone. He was always punctual, friendly and Professional.
Paula and Philip
I was quite happy with the service you provided and would not hesitate in recommending you to friends & clients. Thank you.
Kevin handled the sales of the properties in a professional, caring and friendly manner. He was always available, reliable, thorough and prepared to spend time with us. He always attended to our requests information re the new property in a prompt and effective manner.
We would have no hesitation in using his services in the future and recommending him to family and friends as our agent of choice.
Pam Hennessey also provided prompt and effective service with administration matters relevant to our sales.
Paul & Kay
As this was my first house sale I took advice from friends and met three agents before making a decision on who should handle the sale. Kevin Barry from the Professionals at Christies Beach was the last agent I met with, and I instantly knew that I could trust this agent, and I am extremely pleased he handled the sale for me. I explained to Kevin what I hoped for, and he assured me that there was no reason why we should not reach my goal. Kevin handled everything for me and took the hard work and worries off my hands. I would telephone him with a problem or a concern and his reply was always “I can handle that for you.” I am pleased to report that my goal was reached and the sale went through. In choosing Kevin Barry I experienced honesty, integrity and experience and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is thinking of selling.
Rodney and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Graeme Walker once again for the assistance he gave us during this stressful time. His advice was great and he was easily contactable at all times for any of our questions. That was why we asked him to sell our house to purchase the one he was selling. I would gladly recommend to any of my friends and family to contact Professionals and especially Graeme if they need a professional and friendly team to help with the sale of their property.
Sharyn & Rodney
I have been very happy with the way Sheree showed real interest in the selling of my former lovely home at Seaford, I am very thankful. She was always present for the house openings for sale and punctual too to make sure all was available (keys etc) and occupants vacant. Not gifted in lots of words but most thankful that it was sold promptly and I didn’t miss out on getting into the unit here. Many thanks.
You got the result we wanted with little fuss. Our greatest concern was the welfare of our long term tenant. You looked after her interests as well as our own. We have had a few dealings with you now and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to either a buyer or vendor. Thanks for a great result for us. It wasn’t just a sale for us, we needed our tenants needs looked after and you did that. We are grateful.
Mike and Kay
Graham and I are extremely pleased with the way the Professionals have handled the sale of our property, especially in the present economic situation. Kevin Barry and his staff were very informative at all times and worked hard to get us the price we wanted, keeping us up to date at all times on the progress being made. We would certainly recommend them to our friends.
Annie & Graham
As with the purchase and the sale of our property we could not in any way fault the service that was provided by “The Professionals Christies Beach.” We were informed through every step of the process for both the purchase and sale. Thank you Kevin for the excellent service.
We are very happy with the way Graeme performed in the listing, the settlement, from beginning to end. We had sold other homes and Graeme was the best. Your name says it “Professionals.” We would recommend others to you. So thank you so much. Once again thank you for your kindness and patients Graeme and the wine was a very nice touch.
Ron & Pat
Dear Sheree and colleagues (Kevin & Brian)
I can’t speak highly enough of the professionalism which was shown when you recently sold my home. You made it so very easy and stress free to move into this lovely home with a much smaller garden in such a short space of time. You have all become very good friends to me and I appreciate your attention to detail and support which was freely given. Don’t change a thing, it worked out perfectly. Wishing your company all the very best in the future.
I don’t know that I can add anything extra to the testimonials already written about you, except to say that I agree with them all and that I too, very much appreciate the effort you put into selling my house and the time you spent with me. Be sure there will be a cup of tea waiting if you are ever down my way! Wishing you and your family all the best for the future.
I remain yours truly.
Thank you so much for your help in the sale of our house. Your friendly smile and quick work made it so much easier. Within 3 days had photos and on the internet. Also the discretion and quiet way we wanted the sale to go through was dealt with so efficiently. Within 2 weeks was sold and the way we preferred, being able to rent back for 6 months. Having met you before once or twice, there to us was no other choice on who we wanted to handle the sale, which again was done quickly, efficiently, with discretion and a pleasant meeting and discussions each time.
Thank you very much.
Terri & Greg
I am very happy with the quick sale of my property and the positive attitude of Sheree Kennedy who showed a dedication to the sale and encouragement to me as the vendor. Thank you for turning a huge challenge into a pain free experience.
I have used Brian before to sell a property in Old Noarlunga. My mother sold her house through Brian because of my recommendation. Brian Pounsett is the most honourable, considerate real estate agent available in South Australia. He surpasses all expectations and it is my honour and privilege to recommend him to others.
