In looking for an agent to sell your property you want an experienced, professional team to ensure you get the right price and only go through the process once. That's what we looked for in selecting our agent and with Woodards and Maria that's exactly what we got. From the very first meeting we got straight honest advice which helped us maximise the price of the property we sold. Everything ran like clockwork with regular communication so all open houses ran well, we were well briefed on auction day and they made it as easy as it could be for us as sellers. Maria and the team, including Jason, know the buyers in the market, how to appeal to them and by taking their advice, which we didn't always like, meant we sold over our reserve. Particular mention for Maria Xu who is the most passionate, focused, driven and friendly person you would want on your team. She made things happen and always kept us informed along the way. The time Maria and the team put in to helping us get a great result cannot be underestimated and for us was well worth every dollar spent.
