I found Mark to be very knowledgeable in all aspects of how to go about selling our property Mark was a no messing about real estate person who was personable and warm while being accurate, savvy and to the point. Mark knew the right people who needed to be involved in the sale of our property. While we were a little unsure of some of his advice we followed his advice and received a sales price that was over 10% above the expected market price. Congratulations to you Mark

Great Auctioneer Cameron's handling of the sale and auction of my home far exceeded my expectations in both service and results. I was kept fully informed of the progress at all stages of the campaign and on Auction Day Cameron as the auctioneer used his skills to ensure that the highest possible price was achieved. The sale price was far higher than I had anticipated and I believe that this was as a direct result of a well executed marketing campaign, a terrific sales team and a highly skilled auctioneer
A Pleasure to Deal With Jackie was a true professional throughout my auction campaign. Always calm and composed yet gave me the confidence that everything was under total control at all times. I always felt that Jackie was working in my best interests and auction day really confirmed this. I would highly recommend Jackie to any prospective vendor
Extremely professional, highly experienced, exceptionally personable We had a seamless, easy and positive experience as vendors with Cameron and his team at Woodards Blackburn. The campaign leading up to the auction was well planned and the communication throughout the campaign excellent. Cameron is a highly skilled auctioneer and achieved an exceptional result for us. Very happy!

Very professional and easy to work with We found Cameron great to deal with. Selling can be stressful but it was easy with Cameron. He is very professional and a skilled auctioneer. He got us a great price.
Excellent work I am very grateful to Mark's work because of his professional guidance and integrity that made me feel confident and correct understand for the market. He paid great attention to the details of each house opening and patiently explains with me the characteristics of each group who visited the house. He could find the opportunity who is the real buyer in the shortest time. Also his polite and nice like an old friend at all times. Thanks again.
I am very impressed with Jackie. Jackie is professional, genuine and knowledgeable. She follows up regularly and makes sure all my questions are answered. I feel very supportive. Thanks Jackie.
Above and beyond Cameron and Jackie provided excellent service right from the time we selected them as agents. As a not-for-profit organisation, they realised that we had minimal resources, so they co-ordinated all the staging and other services required to prepare the house for sale. They were professional at all times, reported effectively to us on the level of interest and conducted the auction with expertise, getting a good result. I would highly recommend this team.
Great experience We were very happy we chose Cameron as our agent in the sale of our house. We found him to be easy to relate to with a great knowledge of the current market. A skilled auctioneer who achieved an outstanding result for us on the day. We highly recommend Cameron and his team at Woodards Blackburn.
Mark was exemplary in his diligence in selling my property. There was huge response to our online advertising so it was a real test of him and the Woodards support team in handling and professionally following up the many interested parties. He worked tirelessly in not only contacting all those interested, But went above and beyond holding many 'impromptu' openings to satisfy people who could not attend the standard times. I would recommend him highly to anyone interested in selling.
Mark was an absolute joy to work with during the period of selling our home. He is professional, kind, understanding and keen to help provide guidance needed for us to get the best price possible. I really enjoyed working with Mark during our campaign, and what a shame I don't have another house to sell because I'd be going with Mark again!! Thanks Mark for all your hard work, it's been fantastic working with you
Rachel was very helpful and efficient with any details we required. She regularly contacted us to see if she could assist further. Rachel was very easy to deal with and very professional in her approach making the whole process of purchasing the property less stressful.
Luke's knowledge of the housing market and guidance in the selling of our house was exceptional. At all times he was professional and very approachable and always kept us up to date with buyer's thoughts and expectations.We believe we chose the correct agent for the sale of our family home. Would happily recommend Luke.
very professional and kept us informed throughout the procedure of the selling process
Rachel was on top of everything! Gardening, cleaning and styling we requested was efficiently organized and we were kept informed of quotes and arrangements. When open for inspection we received reports immediately afterwards, informing us of numbers, and level of interest. Meetings were informative and superbly well prepared. Our brother who lives abroad (co-owner) was kept informed too. Rachel made the whole process quite manageable! Result was amazing. I felt well-advised and prepared!
Demi from Woodards assisted us to sell our property in April 2019. She is young, energetic and have a very good local market knowledge. She was very professional and kept us informed with every update. However, I thought negotiating with the purchaser could be little improved. I am sure she will develop her skill on this. Both myself and my wife wish her very best with her future endeavor.
We have nothing but praise for Julian (and Jessica) in the process of selling our home. His sales strategy and advice was clearly based on many years of experience and his thorough understanding of the Blackburn market. Over the period of the campaign we were astounded at the amount of background work that was put in to find and cultivate prospective buyers, which in the end came to fruition with a fantastic auction result. We have no hesitation in recommending Julian as your agent.
We are delighted with Julian (and Jessica's ) efforts in that the house was sold over 2 weeks before auction, and for a very good price. Julian kept us informed through the sale, and explained his strategy at each stage. We were impressed with his ethical approach. When an written offer was submitted he contacted all other parties, had an extra Open for Inspection and met with those who put in an offer. This led to a very pleasing result.
Jackie helped us in the successful purchase of our new home. She was thorough, honest and communicated regularly to keep us informed throughout the sales process. With Jackie involved, we felt very comfortable as purchasers. I would highly recommend Jackie's services to others.
Mark made the process run smoothly for me, as i was not living locally. His thorough communication and prompt response to any of my questions gave me peace of mind.
Jackie's knowledge and communication was exceptional and her professionalism was second to none. A big thank you to Jackie for her commitment , time and continue support.
Julian is an outstanding agent that demonstrated a genuine commitment to achieving the best outcome for our property. He worked tirelessly throughout the entire campaign and nothing was a burden. He kept us well informed, provided sound advice and never missed a beat. A thorough professional and gentleman with exceptional sales experience, market nous, great rapport and ability to negotiate a solid result. We have nothing but praise. Julian and the Woodards Blackburn team are truly amazing.
We find Julian not only to be friendly, patient and helpful but extremely professional and on point in the way he goes about his business. Julian Badenach will go above and beyond to achieve the highest sales result possible for his clients. I would recommend Julian selling your property!
Mark was experienced and knowledgeable about real estate and easy to talk with. Would recommend him to my friends.
Demi is such a great agent, she is hard-working, professional and personable. Not only she helped me got this great price in this tough market, she also helped me prepared the house ready for sell which I know is not easy as there is a lot of work involved. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone that is considering selling!
Mark has a deep knowledge of the market in this area and without overselling came up with a strategy which gave us a better result than we could have imagined. We are delighted with the outcome that his skills and hard work brought to us.
We can highly recommend Mark Johnstone of Woodards, Blackburn. Throughout our advertising and sales campaign, Mark's level of communication was outstanding. He remained cheerful and optimistic, but also realistic during a difficult period in the real estate market. Mark acted with professionalism and integrity, showing us respect at all times. He was readily accessible, returned phone call promptly and was happy to discuss any relevant issues. We would definitely choose Mark as our agent in the future, should the need arise.
Julian's wealth of experience was evident from the outset and his skilled management of sale campaign resulted in seamless experience for my ageing parents moving into next chapter of their lives. The end price achieved in the current market exceeded our expectations and was a wonderful result for our family. We collectively thank you Julian and would not hesitate to recommend you to family and friends for all their real estate needs.
I found Cameron very easy to work with. His easy going manner belies a market knowledge and professionalism that is exemplary. Cameron conducted a successful auction under difficult circumstances - I have dealt with Cameron previously and would have no hesitation in dealing with him again, nor would I have any hesitation in recommending Woodards to prospective clients.
Jessica Hellman is the most courteous and talented estate agent we have ever met. She is to be heartily commended for her bright personality and her outstanding attention to detail. Jessica was wise in suggesting a conservative reserve price on the house, and to answer the family's questions most satisfactorily. She listened carefully to all that the family said in the conversation we had, and was able to answer our questions satisfactorily. We would be delighted to recommend Jessica and Woodards to anyone in matters of real estate.
The family was very happy with Rachel. She kept the family constantly up-to-date on progress and developments, was easily accessable and flexible. Although we did not achieve our initial price, we followed Rachel's subsequent advice and suggestions and were able to secure a sale at a price which was acceptable to the family. Rachel was extremely professional, very patient and handled the individual family members very well whilst bring pro-active, positive and very friendly.
Mark was fully committed to the process of selling our home through the duration of the campaign. He had spent a great deal of time with us prior to us making a final decision to sell and went above and beyond our expectations in providing excellent communication, follow up and genuine advice. It was not an easy market to be selling a home, however Mark and his team remained steadfast and positive getting the job done. Thanks Mark for all your time and hard work in what was a successful campaign!
Julian helped us sell our mother's home. Mum's house was very run down and we had to sell it in a hurry. His advice about how much to do to the house and his contacts with local trades people were absolutely crucial to making this difficult process as smooth as possible. His hard work also got us a great result with 3 bidders on the auction and a sale price that was $155,500 over the reserve in a very tight market. His communication during the whole process was also top notch. Really couldn't have done this without him and all the great staff at Woodards.
My experience with Julian & Woodards could not have been better. From the moment I met Julian, he exuded warmth and a genuine interest in me and my home. Julian was very professional throughout the whole campaign, keeping me up to date along the way. Julian provided excellent advice based on his extensive experience which resulted in a fantastic outcome at auction.
Jessica was fantastic and made the whole process so much easier than expected. She kept us informed and up to date with progress, while working really hard to get the property sold within 2 weeks of listing. Her confident & positive upbeat personality certainly made us confident with selling.
Excellent - also very professional
Mark had sold a property for us previously and we were very happy with the service and attention to detail that he has. We were now selling a deceased estate and Mark kept us informed with all of the complexities that came with it. Mark is knowledgeable, friendly and knows the market, most conversations were of music, our children and of course real estate, it was a pleasure to chat to Mark and we shall certainly call on him when next we are buying or selling.
Jessica is a truly fabulous agent. She is really efficient, is very personable, has great attention to detail and goes the extra mile to ensure that every box is ticked! Her communication was excellent. I have no hesitation in recommending Jessica highly. If your experience of her is like mine, you will not be disappointed.
Julian was assigned a difficult task in selling my property. He took on the challenge and not only was a sale achieved but at a price that far exceeded my expectations. A great result.
With his passion for music it was a pleasure to deal with Mark. Excellent presentation and communication, I found the whole experience of purchasing through Woodards very enjoyable. Full marks to Mark and the team at Woodards.
Jess was a great agent to deal with! Her communication was amazing, and her support through my first purchase was something I wont forget. I would highly recommend her as an agent to any of my friends looking to buy or sell.
Selling our home seemed daunting until we met Mark. His honesty, professionalism and knowledge of the market combined with an approachable and respectful manner made the process a dream. Communication is another strong point as we were constantly kept up to date with feedback from inspections and potential buyers. He is supported by a great team (especially Russell) who worked together for a great result on auction day. We definitely recommend Mark as your agent.
Very friendly and helpful, enthusiastic and proactive. Very happy with everything.
It was an absolute pleasure having Mark and Russell on our team to sell our house and buy another. They were very considerate of our family with two young children and they formed a warm relationship with us. Each phone call and visit from Mark and Russell was direct, encouraging and honest. They made the process actually enjoyable to go through. We feel lucky to have found such genuine and down to earth people to represent us. If we had not, we wouldn’t have moved.
