I appointed Mark to sell 2 properties for me at the same time, both different areas, price points and type of house. His communication with me throughout was above and beyond, I barely had to think about the process at all. He also had to deal with a really difficult tenant of mine and his patience and skill were brilliant. One one property in particular he negotiated 30k more on the purchase price than I expected to get, and got me the expected price on the other property. All in all, extremely happy with my experience with Mark and Woodards, and would highly recommend Mark to anyone thinking of selling or buying.
My husband and myself found Mark Johnstone to be friendly and professional. His understanding and knowledge of the real estate market, made this a positive experience for us. Knowing the right advertising procedures and hard work produced a great result. His communication skills were excellent. We would recommend Mark to everyone looking at selling their home.
My mum Lyn and other family members were very happy with Mark and his professionalism. From the first day, we knew that Mark and also Russell were the men for the job. We wish the very best for Mark in his future and continual success at Woodards.
Hard working and always accommodating. Mark made the process very simple and straightforward and always worked around our availability. And of course, we got the price we wanted in the end.
Good result achieved after disappointing auction so overall happy
Mark has a pleasant but commanding approach. He clearly explains the market and the procedure required to gain the best result possible in executing an auction. Cannot recommend his friendly advice highly enough. At the same time he allows the vendor a sense of guided self control. I felt I could trust Mark and his organization through the whole ordeal.
Mark is a fantastic agent, I would highly recommend him to anyone who was looking at purchasing or selling in the Mitcham area.
We would like to thank Woodards Blackburn and Mark Johnston on there excellent professional service .During the whole time of selling our home the communication and feed back was fantastic. The honesty and advice was genuine .We were very happy with the out come and would recommend Mark Johnston to sell your house.
I can not Rate Mark's Professional Services high enough - from our first meeting to the auction. Marks advice through out the time was honest and professional - the trust we built over this time was result of his easier going but very professional approach. The result from the Auction was above all expectations. I highly recommend Mark if you are looking to Sell your property. Mark will be my first call when looking to buy in the future. Ann
We were extremely happy with the high quality service that Mark provided us recently selling our house. Thorough follow up and analysis of all competitive listings, and also great management of opens and thorough follow up with prospective buyers. Mark was warm and friendly, and very efficient in keeping up communication. A great asset for the campaign to sell our property, and a really lovely man to boot! Highly recommended.
I would highly recommend Mark as he is very professional, knowledgeable, has a great caring attitude and a good sense of humour. This made the whole experience very manageable. He went beyond his role as an agent even when the house was sold and still showed care and concern. There were times when I had issues and was very stressed and Mark came to the rescue with his calming nature. We had an amazing outcome with the sale of the house with many thanks to Mark.
I met Mark two years ago at an open for inspection. Although I was just doing some market research, Mark came to value our house and put together a thorough information pack for us to consider. It took us a further two years to decide to finally sell. During this time, Mark kept in touch - he was considerate and kept in communication without ever being too 'pushy'. When it came time to sell, Mark was honest about price expectations and advised us on the most effective way to achieve the price we needed. He kept in constant contact with us throughout the process and was respectful of both our expectations and stress. Having a 6 month old baby, Mark ensured that we had plenty of notice in terms of inspections and did his best to minimise the impact on us. He also went above and beyond by helping us to negotiate a price and settlement terms on our new home even though he was not obliged to nor was he the selling agent. Mark and his team were exceptional and made us feel so confident in our decision. He managed to achieve an even better price than we expected and there is no doubt that I would recommend him to anyone thinking of selling. A kind, patient and considerate agent who kept us informed throughout the process. Thanks, Mark!
Our time spent with Mark Johnstone was a pleasure, he made a difficult time so much easier to get through with his friendly manner yet always courteous and caring of ones feelings at what was a very emotional time.
Made selling my house easy and stress free. Worked harder than any other agent I have known and was excellent with communication and feedback. Sold our house and got the result we were after. Big Thank you to Mark.
Mark right from the beginning was excellent. He is professional, personable, patient and really does care. He injects humour into a stressful time but does it in a sensitive way. He has a positive outlook whilst being realistic. It has been a pleasure to share our selling journey with him. Highly recommended.
Our experience in selling our house with Mark has been beyond our expectations. Mark was always professional, organised, approachable and excellent with his communication. We were well informed at all stages of the campaign and felt very well looked after. We were never pressured by Mark and found his knowledge of our street, suburb and the changing market to be excellent. Having Mark and Russell work together and do the opens and follows ups personally made all the difference. Their rapport on auction day was professional and entertaining, which helped to reduce the tension and bring in an outstanding result. We highly recommend Mark Johnstone for your real estate sales.
After interviewing several agents, I knew immediately on meeting Mark that I would entrust him with the selling of our family home of 48 years. From the outset, Mark was respectful of my ideas and gave considered thought in proposing and adapting a campaign plan that would achieve maximum benefit in a shortened time frame. Mark always sought my opinion before putting plans in motion. At all times he communicated stages of progress leading up to auction day. Feedback was always immediate with much thought given to stages of progress set out in the overall plan. Mark was always most professional in his demeanour and in the thoughtful presentation of ideas, plans and suggestions. His caring attitude, honest appraisals and great attention to detail engendered trust and inspired confidence in my decision to sell our home. Thank you Mark for your genuine interest, honest manner, thoughtful appraisal and care and concern for me and my family. We have much to be thankful for and this is attributed to you and who you are both personally and professionally. With grateful thanks.
From the first time I met Mark which was 12 months ago, thru to the selling of our house, it has been a pleasure to have known him. He never once pushed the sale of our house. He offered guidance and knowledge we got on really well especially all the coffees we had together. His advice and understanding of the area and real estate made it easy to make decisions on the sale of our house. He gave us advice on the area in real estate over the 12 months. He has a very good group of people that he can call upon such as the photographer, planners, proof reader. They were all able to display our house to its full potential.
Great person. Great knowledge on the area. Easy to talk to. Was confident in his approach to selling this property. Constantly kept me in the loop on what and how the campaign was travelling.
Would not hesitate to recommend mark to other vendors
Mark is extremely professional, approachable and honest agent. We were very happy with the entire experience, advises along the way, communication, the quality of the campaign, marketing and inspections. We highly recommend him as a trustworthy and professional real estate agent.
He’s a great agent to work with. With his experience in the local market and advice to the vendor, the sale is smooth and successful. We appreciate the hard work and great result that Mark and Russell have done.
Mr Mark is pretty Humble in listening you and will provide you the elaborated response/ solution.
Mark was a great agent to work with, he was extremely professional, honest, knowledgeable and hard working. He always kept me well informed and was quick to respond to any questions that we may have had.
Some things just stick in your mind when you decide to sell a home and getting the best agent is hard but important. Mark is salt of the earth. We had no expectations going into the process and little by little he guided us to make the best decisions. It could be your biggest mistake not to use this man. it’s almost a shame it’s all over now.
I just wanted to take a minute to genuinely thank you for all of your hard work throughout this campaign and to let you know how wrapped we all are with the result. I’m more than well aware that this is your job, however honestly, you have made this usually stressful time so much easier on me, and literally made it a pleasure. You kept in touch every step of the way, and advised me of what I could do to get the best possible result for my home without me having to tear my hair out doing too much and putting me both out of pocket and time. You are beyond phenomenal to deal with, you truly have made this ride as smooth as it can go, and for that I am really indebted. I know you felt the pressure a little more, as you knew us from previous dealings, and so I knew there was definitely a little (or a lot!) more effort that went into the selling of my home. Russel was phenomenal too on Saturday, he is such a great auctioneer, and I know he squeezed everything he could out of the buyers. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart to both you and Russel for everything. I’m beyond grateful!
Mark stands behind his personal brand: honesty, integrity, commitment. Selling for the 1st time, Mark made us feel like we were the only clients on his books and, importantly, he was transparent and kept us updated at all times. In the end his faultless campaign work brought about an outstanding result! Well done, we are still singing your praises to friends and family.
Mark is polite, friendly, knows exactly what he is taking about and no request is not accommodated for. Mark works so well with the vendors, constantly updating with feedback, reports, calls and general queries. He is also amazing when it comes to tenants. He covered all their needs and ensured them of an easy and simple process. The campaign he proposed was quick, accurate and 200% complete. Forward thinking of grand final and cup day weekends. The entire process for us to sell, was so simple and stress free. Absolutely NOTHING negative about this experience. Mark has been so helpful not only with selling this property, but general real estate matters. He and ALL his team at Woodards have been fantastic. From day one and even still now. We have other properties we are looking to sell and without a doubt, I will use Mark as our agent. Even our conveyancer commented on how easy Mark is to work with. Super organised, Super friendly and just a really nice person. What a pleasure! Also a huge thank you the Russell, Luke and the entire team from Woodards. Honestly I can not speak high enough of you all, especially Mark. Woodards, you are lucky to have Mark as an agent.
Mark and his team at Woodards Blackburn are very professional and very committed to achieve a great result with the selling of my property. With his knowledge and experience about the market, he was able to answer all of my questions on the spot. He kept me update every step of the way through out the whole campaign.
Mark has great market knowledge. He gives a well considered opinion and always left written feedback about each open for inspection he ran. He delivered everything he promised. thoroughly recommend
Mark was the agent for my mothers property, I cannot praise him enough on his dealings with my mother & myself. A massive credit to Woodward's. Highly recommend mark in all aspects Thank you for making this an easy sale for us We thank you from the bottom of our hearts
