    I found Mark through Google!!!.
    Since my first meeting I felt so confident in Mark's ability and experience in being able to deliver a great result. I was very much impressed with Mark's service as he made the whole process easier and stress free!!!!

    I am really happy because I bought exactly what I was looking for and it was well under my top budget. Most importantly We did it within few weeks.

    Since day one Mark was very pro-active.

     Mark emailed multiple properties every week within my search parameters and wish list.
     Mark allowed me to be involved as much as I wished.
     Mark inspected the properties I liked.
     Mark explained the positives and negatives about each property.
     Mark held a pre-auction meeting and attended the auction
     Mark's strategies and suggestions like where he’ll stand during the auction, how he’ll handle the negotiation etc. etc. and through to the final shaking of hands inside the house all played out in a positive way.

    Thank you Mark for all your work in getting me the right house for the right price!

    I highly recommend Mark for everybody who wants to find a good place to live or invest.

    Many, many, many thanks!

    Mark was personally recommended to me as someone who could be of real help in appraising my property of interest and subsequently representing me at auction.
    He made time to meet for an initial chat over coffee. I was immediately impressed and relaxed with his easy and honest nature, as well as his willingness to listen to my needs.
    A genuinely nice bloke... well experienced in the RE scene, totally committed to helping his clients.... all in all, a very worthwhile experience.
