A Brisbane couple came to us after having tried a well known agency.
At first they we skeptical as they could not find anything about us on the web. Of course we explained, that was intentional and in fact was most likely the reason why their property had not sold.
You see they engaged an agent that told them what they wanted to hear just to get their listing.
By the time this agents time was up, the property was stale and buyers had lost interest.
Worse, they had spent nearly $10,000 on marketing that in essence did nothing other than promote the agent and agencies brand.
This is a classic scenario where agencies tell you “you can’t sell a secret” type of rubbish statement. That’s all very well, but they’re not the ones just wasted nearly $10,000 out their pocket.
Fortunately all was not lost as we could still help. We evaluated their property and what market it would most suit. Then we commenced our own property marketing and within 2 weeks, that’s right 2 weeks, we sold for well over market value.
