Mark Johnstone kept us fully informed throughout the sales process. Invariably respectful, attentive and responsive, Mark included us in the Woodards’ Team as they brought their resources to bear on our situation. Mark’s experience and expertise contributed significantly at some critical moments, and his wise advice was given with graciousness and due candour. Trust was and is an imperative for us, and Mark’s integrity was an important contributor to our wellbeing and most satisfying outcome.
Rachel is a wonderful agent. We have now both bought and sold through her and she was the most friendliest and professional person to deal with. We highly recommend her!
One of the greatest agent in town who has sold my property beyond my reserve of more than $150K. Professional, trustworthy, diligent and reliable. Without hesitation we will definitely highly recommend Julian to our friends for their property sale.
From start to finish Rachel was fantastic. She gave us good honest information to begin with and followed up just the right amount. She understood the Blackburn market and set realistic expectations. The campaign went smoothly - she worked very hard. The final result was above our expectations. I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone selling in the Blackburn market
Julian's knowledge of our property and the area is excellent. Marketing was top notch and we are totally confident we got the best price possible for our house. The photography and video's produced were the best we've seen. Julian narrated the video and we are very pleased with it. We received excellent advice on the presentation of our house for both inspections and photography. We are very pleased with Julians work on our behalf and would recommend him to anybody seeking an agent.
Julian was always very helpful and professional. We were so happy with the service and care taken. Julian also took a personal interest in us as clients and was very patient and attentive. We were so impressed by the results of our sale and couldn’t be happier.
Very professional and respectful. Excellent sales skills. Easy to deal with. Excellent communication and responsive. Would highly recommend.
A man of impeccable character. Mark's punctuality is remarkable, he is very organised and thorough. We are very pleased with the way he plans and gets things in order throughout the campaign, the way he runs the opens, and the way he reports. And his communication skills are just astonishing. We don't even need to think twice when it comes to choosing a realestate agent when Mark is around.
Cameron has a personable style and was true to his word in terms of the house market value and ultimate selling price.
Mark was very responsive and informative. Mark knew the market well and did everything he could to guide my decisions and take me through the typical highs and lows of selling a property. Mark navigated the challenges and uncertainties we faced along the way. When the time came, Mark worked hard to negotiate with the buyer, resulting in the sale. He was sensitive and respectful of my wishes throughout the process.
Mark worked very hard to make a difficult sale under the circumstances of COVID-19. He was polite at all times and kept me informed. I felt he knew the market well and respected my wishes whilst at the same time giving me some guidance as to how to move forward with selling my property. I have no hesitation in recommending Mark as a Real Estate sales person
Luke was fabulous. He is very easy going, yet professional. No pressure selling, just good advice and he LISTENS
From the outset, Luke was keen to represent us in a highly professional and efficient manner. He was attentive to our needs, was always willing to go that extra step for us and managed our difficult family circumstances with a dignified and respectful approach, guiding us every step of the way. He demonstrated a caring and patient manner with us at all times, remaining positive throughout the inspection phase and subsequent sale of our home.
Professional and excellent service! Great communication and recommendation from Mark throughout the sale campaign. Very happy with the result. Highy recommended!
We have known Demi for many years and she has always been very approachable, professional and hardworking. Therefore, when we had to put our property on the market we engaged Demi. She helped us with organising staged furniture along with other marking materials. She worked tirelessly throughout the advertising campaign and we were able to achieve a great result at auction. We look forward to working with her in the future and achieving more great results. Thanks Demi!
Demi did not leave any stone unturned in order to achieve the price I wanted. At auction the price Demi achieved was way above my expectations. I would not hesitate in recommending Demi to anyone wanting to get the best price possible from their sale.
Jackie is a fabulous agent, quick at understanding needs, and sharing her knowledge Jackie's local knowledge was extensive, and she understood both her vendor and her buyer and worked closely with us through solid follow up and checking in. She was understanding of our need to make sure that this home suited us, and went out of her way to facilitate a building inspection. She made the experience of buying as relaxed as possible. Thanks Jackie!
Rachel came to us very highly recommended by three other groups of our friends who had had Rachel and Woodards as their real estate agents. Rachel was absolutely wonderful. This was the first time we had been a vendor and Rachel guided us through the process step by step so proficiently. Always there with words of encouragement and support. I highly recommend Rachel as being a very professional, hard working, supportive and caring real estate agent. We didn’t need to try any other agency.
Julian was an absolute joy to deal with. We felt we were in assured and confident hands from the very beginning. Our unit was being prepared for sale during the lockdown in Melbourne which meant we couldn’t attend so Julian and his team stepped up and got things done with grace and good humour. Julian’s guidance kept us on track when we felt overwhelmed and the unit sold In a matter of weeks for a very fair price. I can’t recommend Julian highly enough.
Jackie and Cameron were terrific! Open and honest with all of their dealings with us, and most importantly they got back to us with any follow up action needed. Jackie took the time to explain everything, and was so very patient in answering our questions.
Jackie and Cameron were terrific to work with. They worked closely with us to make sure that we had all of the information that we needed; answered every single question. Cameron was quick to respond to every question and his knowledge of the history of the unit we were looking to buy, and of the local area was instrumental in us pursuing this property.
We really liked Mark. He was excellent in managing our stress. He explained his marketing strategy well, which then played out exactly as Mark planned. He understood the local cultural differences in dealing with Chinese buyers. He got us a significantly higher price than we expected. We have called on Mark several times since the sale for advice and he continues to be generous with his time and expertise. If I were buying or selling a home, I would ring Mark.
Mark is a very knowledgeable person and gets to know his clients very down to earth and no bull in regards to selling . Keeps on top of things and was very helpful in selling and buying. Could not have got a more friendly honest and reliable agent. All aspects were covered and understandable everything explained so a novice would know where the process was at. Would recommend him to anyone
Mark sold our property with good result during the pandemic. He kept us positive when we were stressed. Updated us with reports and analyses on a timely manner through the whole marketing process. He knows the market extremely well. He even helped us with the tenants moving out, finding reliable traders etc that made our sale totally stress free. You knew you have found the right agent when he constantly reminded you he’s contactable 24/7.
Our experience with Jessica was nothing but smooth. Her professional manner, yet approachable attitude made it not only very easy for us but also for potential buyers. We received concise feedback and reassurance the whole way through the process, which made selling for the first time a lot less stressful! She was even so accommodating and helpful with giving us advice etc. post sale to help us in navigating the market to find our new home. Couldn’t recommend Jess and her team highly enough. :)
Rachel is always kind, honest and diligent. She is the best agent I have ever used. I will work with her again and would recommend her to others.
Jackie was a pleasure to deal with when selling our property in Blackburn. Her honest, open and professional approach kept us constantly informed and on the same page. Thank you Jackie for going over and beyond for us, helping us achieve an outcome that we are so happy with!
Mark was fantastic to deal with! Always very approachable and transparent. He made the whole process as easy as possible.
Our intuition to entrust the sale of our home to Julian proved correct. He was direct and easy to deal with. I felt that his years of experience combined with his respectful and forthright manner made the whole process go very smoothly which was a real feat under these difficult times.
Currently tenants with Woodards Real Estate Blackburn for 6 months now, I am extremely impressed with the level of service provided by my property managager Grace Gully. The service is professional, highly responsive and respectful to tenants needs. We have had immediate responses to any maintenance or concerns about the property. I feel very lucky to have such a good relationship with my property manager and believe this is a very important aspect of a good rental management. I have been a rental tenant for many years and would highly recommend this firm.
As a renter, you can tend to get used to not being given the highest level of service. Woodards Blackburn (in particular Grace Gully and Kati Litovkin, but anyone I dealt with there was awesome) completely blew me away with their professionalism and friendliness. They all go above and beyond to assist their tenants, and I can only assume they do the same for the owners. Highly recommended that renters go with Woodards Blackburn. I'm with a different agency now, and wish almost daily I was still with these guys!
Before the stage 4 restrictions lockdown Demi was successfully assisted in selling one of my brand new townhouses, which were developed on a piece of land purchased from her help two years ago. Other than that, she was so considerate to recommend her wonderful teammates to lease out my another townhouse at same time. No denying that Demi is very professional and following up very closely from time to time.
Mark has sold for us in Vermont South before and again we were not disappointed by his professional approach, knowledge of the current market and care in selling our home. He provided timely reports and kept us up to date at all times. Would highly recommend and trust him to sell for us again.
We had interacted with Cameron and Jackie during the auction. Since then, Kristy has helped with the lease and Sharliese has been managing our investment property. All agents we had interaction with are very professional and responsive. Excellent service! Highly recommended.
We moved into our rental mid March and the transfer/ paperwork process was clear and easy to complete. The initial maintenance requests when we moved in were handled smoothly and promptly by our property manager Kati Litovkin. More recently the heater broken down and this job was given priority and was resolved as quickly as possible. We have a lot of confidence in Kati and her ability to handle issues as they arise in a professional manner. Very happy to continue liaising with her in the future.
Grace Gully has been absolutely professional in guiding me through the process when my lease expired. She communicated timely and concisely what I need to do and has made it so much easier for me to finalise the bond claim. Strongly recommend Woodward's Blackburn
Julian and his team from Woodards were exceptional!. His knowledge of the current climate was up to date and extremely helpful. We live overseas and his gentle guidance in all areas, climate,economy,staging, recommendations for improvements etc, were spot on.Could not have done it without them. His team (Isabella and co) were punctual in giving us feedback on Open for Inspections and followed through with the all customers who were interested which resulted in an above reserve sale on the day.
We have been renting with woodards for almost 2 months only. Our leasing consultant was Danielle Gillam, she was very responsive to all our queries and understood our situation from our previous rental apartment. she was patient with us negotiating with the Landlord to achieve a suitable leasing agreement for us. Our property manager is Kati Litovkin and her assistant is Jasmine Palioportas both are very responsive to our emails whether it’s a maintenance request or other matter. helpful, easy to talk to, professional very different from our previous real estate agent (not from woodards)
Jackie was always aware of our needs, communicated well, encouraged us when we needed to make decisions and was also friendly and professional. Her recommendations were timely and appropriate, and assisted us in selling at a good price. We would highly recommend her as great agent for others.
Cameron and Jackie provided friendly, wise and timely advice throughout the ups and downs of selling our property. We appreciated the extra effort they made in selling our property. We highly recommend Cameron.
Cameron's knowledge of the local market and area, even through the Covid crisis, was very reassuring to us with our sale. We sold within 3 weeks, and were kept up to date with regular emails and texts regarding the property inspections, and interested buyers. Cameron exceeded our expectations and we felt like we were "in good hands". Thank you Cameron and team at Woodards Blackburn!
Jackie and the team at Woodards were diligent and professional. They were excellent communicators and worked with us to achieve a positive result.
Professional, grace under fire Good job selling my place at possibly the worst time in 100 years during lockdown. Thanks for everything ????
Excellent service - highly recommended Mark came highly recommended by a friend who was a previous client. Mark proved to be an ethical, diligent, hard working agent with great market knowledge and experience. He successfully guided us through the process of selling our home at an excellent price and within a short time. This was a remarkable feat, given the sale took place at the height of the Covid-19 crisis, during a difficult market and constantly changing government regulations. We wouldn't hesitate to use his services again.
Excellent service. Great sale outcome We chose Julian & his agency from online information. We are delighted that our choice proved to be so sound. Julian was prompt responding to our online enquiry and from the time of our first meeting,the next day, he was open, honest and most professional. Julian and his staff were always available, helpful and worked really hard to sell the property.. A neighbour commented how frequently inspections were occurring. A process which we were rather apprehensive about, was made so painless!
Professional, honest and confident negotiator! Luke was great with his market knowledge and knew what needed to be done to our home to create the necessary competition. He also had tradies ready to get started and was more than happy to project manage the entire process. We managed to get multiple offers and sold within 2 weeks, despite the uncertainty around COVID-19. It was a hassle-free selling experience. Thank you!
Very helpful and genuine Jackie helped us secure our first home during challenging times of Covid-19. With so many restrictions in place, it was difficult and confusing time to buy a house. Jackie made the process easy and smooth. She conducted inspections as per our convenience and proactively managed communications with the vendor. We are very happy with her professionalism and helping nature. Wish her all the best.
Mark was amazing during the whole process of selling our unit, from ideas on improvements prior to marketing right through to auction. His communication with us and with buyers was excellent - we were kept informed regularly and felt very comfortable with what was happening at every stage. Mark was very professional and friendly and we achieved an amazing result on the day. Thank you Mark!
Jackie helped us trough the sales process providing us the expert support and knowledge when we needed it and guided us to a better that expected outcome.
Jackie is one the best property agent we ever met since we are in Australia. She is very patient, work to details, and also self-motivated to help us looking for the best solution for our problems. It has truly ben a pleasure journey to work with her to get our property. We greatly appreciate her help and will look for her help again without any hesitation ! Highly recommended !
