John. Taylor (Landlord ) Fri, 10 May 2019 15:14:27 +1000
"First National was the second real estate agency that we spoke to once we decided to sell. Right from the very beginning Dave was very approachable, had great listening skills and totally understood what we were trying to achieve. Dave enjoyed the challenge of completing a sell and buy at the same time and always gave us the confidence that we would be able to achieve our goal. He certainly did that and then some!!!!
Dave acted in a totally professional and ethical manner at all times. All details were openly disclosed and wherever possible Dave tried to save us money eg advertising in sections as required. This saved us $650 in real estate.com fees as this was not required as our property sold in two weeks before it reached this stage. Dave hit the floor running right from the beginning even though we started this whole process around 20th December; just when everyone else was already in Christmas mode.
Dave was always available if we had any questions or queries. Nothing was ever too much trouble for him. He went above and beyond in all aspects of our sales transaction. Dave is definitely a people person. He enjoys the interaction with people and understands how their minds work. Dave is very straightforward; there are no hidden agendas. He has been an absolute pleasure to deal with during this whole transaction. Dave has a very high work ethic and a strong attention to detail and these two skills help him to achieve his high results.
During the process of our sale we also dealt with Richard Hunt, Sales, Jo Boxsall, Sales and Rochelle Scott Sales Administrator. All of the staff at First National Yamba work extremely well together like a fine tuned machine. They have the whole process down pat. We were always kept in the loop and the team always worked with our best interest at heart. It was a pleasure to have both Richard and Jo in our home during Open House. The information that we have received from the office has made the whole transaction an enjoyable experience."
