Ken and Lee were very professional. They kept in constant contact to keep us up to date on things. When our auction passed in they kept working away until a buyer was found. Very sound advice and hard working agents. Thanks Ken and Lee and the team.
Ken Chappell was the auctioneer for the recent sale of my property. I could not have asked for or wished for anything more from Ken. Prior to the auction I was extremely well informed of the process, tips and hints on what I should do to present my property in the best possible light and manner, what to expect, all the potential outcomes (including advising on presentation and staging to best show off my property), decisions that I may need to make, along with what would happen on the auction day and beyond. His communication and rapport with the crowd on the auction day was excellent, ensuring they were aware of the auction rules, highlighting the properties key points of value (including proximity to Caulfield Grammar, shopping centres, the Jells Park open space etc), and encouraging bids. Ken’s auctioning style was very infectious and the property ended up being sold to a bidder that only saw the property for the first time on the day of sale. Following the auction Ken was very professional in working with the new owners and ensuring everyone was informed and all the appropriate paperwork completed. I'm very grateful for his professionalism and expert knowledge, which ensured the maximum return and outcome for my property with the minimum amount of stress (he had a very calming manner). If I ever needed a real estate agent or auctioneer I would definitely use Ken and the team, without hesitation, in fact I would be reluctant to use any one else.
Very pleasing attitude and assistance with the sale of our house

I have just had an amazing four week Auction campaign with Woodards Doncaster. I had complete confidence and trust in my dealings with Ken Chappell and Stephen Marsh. Ken was the Auctioneer on the day of my Auction and he did a fabulous job. I have since had neighbours coming to me commenting on how good he was telling me he was the best they had seen. My house was sold at Auction, with thanks to the great work by Ken. I cannot recommend ken and his team highly enough.
The team led by Ken Chappell and Stephen Marsh were very good and never stopped giving encouragement throughout the house sale.
