Darrell's advice for presentation and sale worked a treat!

From our first meeting with Darrell, we felt unpressured yet confident! It is one of life's most important decisions to sell the family home, and we can say with confidence, that we chose the right man for the job.

From our first meeting with Darrell, we felt unpressured yet confident! It is one of life’s most important decisions to sell the family home, and we can say with confidence, that we chose the right man for the job. Our house was sold for asking price, with only one open inspection, and Darrell’s advice for presentation and sale worked a treat! We have no hesitation in recommending Darrell Johnson as a wonderful Real Estate Agent!


 


Maree & Clem Wildermuth

we felt very confident in his ability to market our house

Thank you to Darrell Johnson for his professional handling of our sale. He was always pleasant and smiling and managed to negotiate a sale with a figure we were happy with.

Thank you to Darrell Johnson for his professional handling of our sale.  He was always pleasant and smiling and managed to negotiate a sale with a figure we were happy with. That is some achievement in this market and his quiet but efficient and pleasant manner has a lot to do with it.  I would also like to commend him for the considerate way he managed inspections: we were notified ahead in plenty of time and he came early to ensure the house was ready.  He rang us after each inspection to report on the buyers’ reactions.  At all times he kept us up-to-date on the progress of the sale and we felt very confident in his ability to market our house.  Our thanks once again to him and your office.


 


Elizabeth & Brian Spencer

I now do not hesitate to recommend Darrell to anyone who is thinking of selling.

I first met Darrell when we were looking to purchase a property and inspected one that he had listed. I was immediately impressed with his warm nature and the level of professionalism he displayed.

I first met Darrell when we were looking to purchase a property and inspected one that he had listed. I was immediately impressed with his warm nature and the level of professionalism he displayed.


Although we didn’t end up purchasing the property Darrell was selling at the time, when we needed to sell our own residence a year later, I knew Darrell was the man for the job.


In an extremely tough market when houses were not moving, within 5 days of listing our property with Darrell, he had a signed contract on our table at a price we were extremely happy with.


His level of experience and knowledge of the local property market, together with his high level of integrity, personable manner and strong work ethic made Darrell a pleasure to do business with.


I now do not hesitate to recommend Darrell to anyone who is thinking of selling.

sell it he did, in only a few weeks

I would like to congratulate Darrell Johnson on selling my home in such a professional and timely manner.

I would like to congratulate Darrell Johnson on selling my home in such a professional and timely manner.


I had previously engaged the services of two other Real Estate Agents to sell my home before I was referred to Darrell. Both of these Real Estate Agents did nothing but condition me to take a lower price from the minute they listed the property for sale. I noticed with both these Agents that as soon as I signed on the dotted line there were dozens of excuses and reasons why it wasn’t selling.


With Darrell, his experience was clearly demonstrated. I took his advice, did all the marketing he recommended and simply let him do his job.


Darrell was clear, precise and accurate. He didn’t tell me what I wanted to hear, he told me the truth, so I had no hesitation to list with him. I got my price via his marketing campaign and am very pleased with the service and his whole handling of the sale process.


It goes to show how comfortable I was with him, I am also a Real Estate agent, but felt it best to have an external agent sell it … and sell it he did, in only a few weeks.


If you would like to talk to me about him I would be pleased to do so, and for the record, I would refer him to anyone even if my home had not have sold because he did more than any agent has ever done in all my 24 years in the industry.


 


Keith Knights

you are an outstanding agent Darrell

I have to tell you that after looking at numerous properties in the past week or so (now as a buyer), I have yet to meet an agent as professional and dedicated as you Darrell.

I have to tell you that after looking at numerous properties in the past week or so (now as a buyer), I have yet to meet an agent as professional and dedicated as you Darrell.  I always knew this was the case but it is interesting to see what is out there.  I have met some very nice people but they don’t follow through with enquiries or bother getting back to me – when I almost have money to spend. It has been and continues to be (until we find the right place) a very interesting exercise.


Thanks again for all your hard work in securing our sale. As I said previously, you are an outstanding agent Darrell – professional in every way and there was never any thought to go with another agent, even though I think I could paper the house with all the agent letters we received. We are now looking forward to the next exciting chapter in our lives as we try country living.


I was at a friend’s house for drinks recently and was very happy to recommend you to the gathering as some of them may consider selling also.

No small task was too difficult for Darrell

Selling your home is a huge monetary concern for most Australians but Darrell was professional, well-mannered and kept us in the loop during the whole process.

Selling your home is a huge monetary concern for most Australians but Darrell was professional, well-mannered and kept us in the loop during the whole process. No small task was too difficult for Darrell and during the sales process we were informed, kept up to date and advised in a most professional manner.


I would have no hesitation in recommending Darrell Johnson to represent you when it is time to sell your home and move on … stress free, informative, understanding and most of all respectful and honest to the core. Choose Darrell and get the best sale price available in the most professional manner.


Wally Fullerton-Smith

he did it all !!!

WOW ... what an experience !!! I wanted to write this letter for any vendors who are trying to choose an agent to sell their home.

WOW … what an experience !!! I wanted to write this letter for any vendors who are trying to choose an agent to sell their home.


We listed our property for sale with Darrell Johnson from Knobel and Davis Property Services. We had dealt with Darrell when we bought the house 3 years earlier and found him to be very professional and knowledgeable then, so he was the first agent we thought to ring when we decided to put the house on the market. We are located in Melbourne so we put our trust in Darrell to sell our home and communicate with us from a long distance – we were not disappointed. Whether it was the little things he did like touching up paint work, organising tree removal, bringing items from his own home to complete the look of the furnished rooms or anything that he thought would improve the selling chances of the property, he did it all !!!


We have bought and sold a number of properties in Melbourne and have dealt with a number of different agents and we can honestly say that Darrell has been the most professional, trustworthy, and hard working agent we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. We know that the market is tough in Queensland at the moment and Darrell pulled out every stop to help sell our home from the moment we listed the property to the moment it sold. We never felt out of the loop – he always contacted us via phone call or e-mail after every open home or inspection and gave us valuable feedback.


Darrell is that agent that gives just that little bit more and who cares about you and your home – not just collecting his commission (which I can guarantee you will have no problems handing over as you will learn his is well and truly worth it). At the end of all of this, I now count Darrell as not only my agent but also as my friend and I am sure at the end of your experience you will feel the same.


If you think this letter is too good to be true, please don’t hesitate to call me as I would gladly tell you more about our experience in selling our home with Darrell.


Regards,


 


Brandon & Kate Groves

Thank you for all your help in relation to the purchase of my first property. It can be a daunting experience so I appreciate the help and service that you provided. Furthermore, thank you for the guidance and transparency in relation to the negotiation and settlement of the property and the assistance and support you gave knowing that I had limited property buying experience. As a first home buyer, you made the process of purchasing the property much easier than expected. I would be happy to recommend you to any prospective property purchaser/seller based on the service you provided during the purchase of my property. Thank you for your help with everything and I look forward to dealing with you in the future.

we could rely on Brett's word

We recently listed our home in Surfers Waters Estate for sale with Brett Laws of Knobel & Davis as result of a recommendation from friends.

We recently listed our home in Surfers Waters Estate for sale with Brett Laws of Knobel & Davis as result of a recommendation from friends.


We are pleased to confirm that the recommendation was in our experience thoroughly warranted. Brett acted in our interests to achieve what we consider an excellent result.


Most importantly from our perspective was the fact that we could rely on Brett’s word. If he undertook to take any action on our behalf, he carried through. His extensive experience in real estate was evident. We are both solicitors and have over the years dealt with many real estate agents in a professional capacity. We therefore feel confident in making these comments.


We would not hesitate to recommend Brett as a thoroughly professional agent

Brett is a pleasure to deal with

I have known Brett for over five years and during this time he has successfully marketed and sold a number of properties for me.

I have known Brett for over five years and during this time he has successfully marketed and sold a number of properties for me.


Brett has always ensured that the best possible price was achieved in a sale and has in fact achieved prices that other agents said were nowhere near possible in the current economic climate.


He has always been accessible, truthful and offered balanced evidence based advice in a rapidly changing and unpredictable market.


While Brett’s skills and knowledge are excellent, it is his genuine desire to deliver the best possible result and service to his client that are his standout qualities.


Brett is a pleasure to deal with and is one of the very few agents and always the first that I recommend to anyone

We then met you and felt you seemed honest

When we decided to sell our waterfront home in Broadbeach Waters we spoke to several local agents who all promised the world!

Dear Brett


When we decided to sell our waterfront home in Broadbeach Waters we spoke to several local agents who all promised the world! We then met you and felt you seemed honest as well as far more professional and experienced.   After much thought we decided to sell our home with you, and looking back it was the best real estate decision we have made! We would like to sincerely thank you for your honesty and integrity as well as your excellent negotiating skills which assisted in achieving a terrific result for us in a difficult market.


We would be more than happy to recommend you highly to any one who is wishing to sell a property on the Gold Coast.


 


Marilyn & Michael Iury

The experience was pleasurable

Thank you for your perseverance and hard work in the purchase of our property on Chevron Island.

Brett,


Thank you for your perseverance and hard work in the purchase of our property on Chevron Island.


During the months it took to secure our property your honesty and integrity in the sometimes complex negotiations was always top shelf.


The experience was pleasurable in that we also became friends with the previous owners. With your help and extensive knowledge of the area we were able to obtain all the information we required to make an informed decision on the price we were prepared to pay.


All the many people I have met on the Island that have purchased from or sold through you all have the same high opinion of you and your work ethic.


I would have pleasure in recommending you to any of my friends or family as I have already done.


 


 


David Hough

We really did appreciate your professionlism

A Belated "Thank-You" for your assistance in selling our unit. It was not an easy task, with a number of hurdles along the way.

Hi Brett,


A Belated “Thank-You” for your assistance in selling our unit. It was not an easy task, with a number of hurdles along the way. However we were delighted when the sale finally went through. Trying to sell a property “long distance” was never going to be easy, and circumstances beyond your control made it even more difficult than anticipated. We really did appreciate your professionlism, honesty, perseverance, and importantly, your sense of humour throughout the campaign.


Thank you again.


 


 


Helen Charles-Hoare

You have a client for life here

We still can’t believe that in this hard market you got our Sorrento home sold in less than 4 weeks! You are hands down the best agent we have ever dealt with.

Hi Brett,


We still can’t believe that in this hard market you got our Sorrento home sold in less than 4 weeks! You are hands down the best agent we have ever dealt with.


We had tried 3 other local agents before and they didn’t get one single offer and you got two!


Your high level of professionalism and excellent advice and service is what made a normally painful experience quite pleasant!


You have a client for life here and when any of my family or friends needs an agent, I will make sure they give you a call.


Thanks again mate
