A well mannered and thoughtful agent who was genuinely interested in you and not just in selling your property. Great communication and follow up, nothing was too much bother. We would highly recommend Adam to anyone looking to buy/sell and in the words of my wife " he was the ducks nuts”

OUTSTANDING AGENT

From the first moment I met Adam, I knew that he would sell our house. He has a rare blend of confidence and sophistication, that never approaches arrogance (we had a bad reaction to another bullish local competitor in Iluka). Adam is polite and reassuring with a wealth of local knowledge, experience and a successful sales record. He sold our house in the first week, for above the asking price and has continued to stay in daily contact, to inform us of how the sale is proceeding. I am sure if you give Adam a chance to sell your home that you will be as impressed and confident in his ability as we are. I would have no hesitation in recommending him and will use his talents again in the future.

Thank you Adam, we cannot compliment you enough for your professionalism and commitment.

I would absolutely recommend Adam Whitford from Harber Real Estate. He worked extremely hard for us during the time our house was on the Market and I feel went above and beyond doing Private mid-week showing for clients who couldnt make the weekend Home Opens. I plan to let anyone looking to sell their House to use Adam and we plan to use Adam next time we sell our house! Thanks Nicole and Mark

Hi Craig Waters! Just wanted to thank you for all your help in selling our house 4 Porteous Rd, Sorrento. It was a pleasure meeting you when we first bought the house 3 years ago and also a pleasure selling with you this time. You were the first person we thought of to sell the house and you didn't disappoint. Your assessment of the market and our house was spot on. The photography and videos were stunning. The interactive floor plans were fantastic! How great to click on a floor plan and see the photo that corresponds to that room?! This combined with the virtual tour really allowed potential buyers to have a good feel for the flow of the house before we even had the first home open. Your professionalism, directness and ability to market and close a deal is fantastic. You are by far an expert in the field and have many years experience not only in real estate, but also in Sorrento real estate with a keen knowledge of previous history and current trends. By far the quickest, easiest house we have ever sold. I would happily recommend you to anyone looking to obtain the best value for their house they can in a very reasonable time frame. Thanks so much - KARREN & DR LAURENCE Tham

We can not speak highly of Adam, he did everything he could to be a great agent by both the owner and us, the buyer. His knowledge of the industry is fantastic and he was always there for us when we needed him. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone I know. Our move was a breeze and it was all pretty much down to him.
Siobhan Guirguis, 5 Baracuda Court Sorrento.
Craig recently acted as sole agent for my husband and I when we sold our property in Sorrento. I cannot thank and recommend Craig highly enough. He achieved a price well in excess of the asking price on the first open weekend. Not only did we get a great price but dealing with Craig was a pleasure. He was professional and respectful throughput the process. Always available at the end of the phone and answered all my questions in a timely manner. The photos of the property were professionally taken and I was very happy with how they looked. Craig however thought one of the outside pictures could be improved with the placement of a few extra plants. So, not one to hang about he sourced the plants and planted them for us that day himself! Well and truly beyond the call of duty. I cannot recommend Craig enough...thank you again!
Daniel - 20 Barossa Heights Ocean Reef
Selling my property was not something I was looking forward to, with visions of endless home opens, pushy agents, buyers with unrealistic expectations, etc etc. I was also concerned about realizing a reasonable price in a softening market. Then, after meeting various agents and not being particularly impressed, I met Adam Whitford. What a breath of fresh air! Adam has a very professional manner, is extremely hardworking and an absolute pleasure to deal with. From the outset I knew Adam was working tirelessly for me and I had a friend in my corner. I was more than satisfied with the process and successful, speedy sale. I would recommend Adam to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.

Hi Steve,

My apologies it's taken me a while to get around to doing this, I just wanted to give you some feedback on Adam who recently sold our house in Iluka.

We were so impressed with how professional he was was and yet always maintained a friendly, kind attitude throughout the whole process. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Adam and Harber Real Estate to anyone wanting to sell their home.

Please feel free to pass my number on to anyone that may want a reference, I would be only too happy to help.

Many thanks.


Wes and Jean
Hi Mark,

We just wanted to say thank you for the incredible service you provided to us throughout the sales process of our property.

We have really respected you as an agent and the attention to finer details is a clear example of this, including going above and beyond, and with respect to us as clients as you would your own property.

We will not hesitate to refer you to our friends and colleagues and will definitely not hesitate to make contact to assist with future sales and purchases if we go down that path.

Once again thank you,

Kind regards,
Jane & James White
“Honesty and Professionalism”

We have just bought and sold a house using Craig Waters from Harber Real Estate and would highly recommend him to anyone wishing to either buy or sell a property in the Sorrento/Kallaroo area. Craig managed to secure an offer well within the asking range on our property for sale within one week of it being listed and then successfully negotiated our purchasing offer accordingly. Craig was extremely professional and knowledgeable and always available via phone or email to answer any questions we had. He advised us through all stages of the process with honesty and professionalism and maintained this service right until the day we moved in. Thank you so much Craig – we are very happy in our new home and we are very grateful to you for all that you did to enable us to make our move happen.

Mr & Mrs Bancroft, Sorrento
We have been deeply impressed by the exceptional achievements of Craig Waters in the sale of our Sorrento property.

At initial appraisal Craig immediately recognised our passion in our bespoke homes credentials, translating this belief into an emotive sales campaign. Our unique home was constructed using non-standard building techniques and materials and Craig professionally responded with a non-standard, customised approach to the sale of our home. We were particularly impressed with the care and effort Craig and Harber RE put into accurately pricing our home, where no direct market comparisons existed. Craig’s tailored sales advice illustrated his experience and willingness to take on this challenge. Craig also strongly recommended the importance of staging the home to meet the intended buyer profiles.

Results, well they speak for themselves, home marketed and sold within 3 days, with above average number of enquiries and outstanding attendance at the home open. The home sold within the detailed price range provided by Craig, which interestingly was well in excess of other valuations that had been received through appraisals. This clearly illustrates Craig’s advantage in focussing on the Sorrento area, in terms of his experience, his knowledge and his devotion to performing in the best possible manner for each individual client’s home sale.

We will always recommend Craig’s services, and especially for individual non-standard home designs.

Dear Steve Harber,

I would just like to send you this email with regards to the conduct of Mark Jackson during the sale of our property in Ellenbrook, and the purchase of our new property in Tapping.

Mark’s professionalism and conduct throughout the entire process was exceptional, and did not falter at all during the period between my initial email below seeking a new representative, and the now-imminent settlement of both of the abovementioned properties.

Mark has always presented himself immaculately in personal presentation, professionalism and representation of Harber Real Estate.

From our initial meeting, Mark was open and honest about the current market, and explained that the average period to sell was in the vicinity of ~4+ months. We understood this, and were impressed by Mark’s ‘no-bull’ approach.

As you would be aware (from the email below), we had previously been listed with two other agents and had no success in even gaining interest in the property. We strongly believe that neither of the previous two agents had a hunger to sell, nor were they dedicated and/or committed to selling their listings in a somewhat-difficult market. It all seemed too hard for them, and that we were more of a burden than a client. From the outset, we sought to find an agent to represent us who had such a hunger and who wouldn’t sit back and wait for the market to come to them. We understood that the market at the time of listing was not overly buoyant, however, were prepared to look at a long(er) term relationship should the right representative come around.

Mark has recently commended us on being ‘good vendors’, however, I feel that we have, at times, put a bit more pressure on him that we should have, and he has dealt with it in his stride and maintained his professional approach.

Mark has been a great source of information and assistance for us, and we are extremely grateful. Both my wife and I strongly believe that all recognition should be going to Mark, and that he deserves high commendation for his efforts during the transactions for both of the abovementioned properties.

We are still dealing with Mark directly, and will thank him personally for his efforts, but would also like you to be aware of our gratitude towards him as well.
Darren & Lisa
Dear Mark,

Just a quick note to remind you what a credit you are to your profession.

We are still wading through the nightmare that is purchasing a house, which we thought was going to be the easy part! Suffice to say, our dealings with Real Estate Agents in general has not been exactly what we would describe as positive, however you remain to this day, an exception to that rule.

Thank you once again for your exceptional level of professionalism, diplomacy and patience in the successful sale of our home. Without being in your adept hands the sale would not have transpired and I fear we may have suffered a nervous breakdown! You are a pivotal person in people’s lives at a very major junction and a smooth sale often means that the significance of your role as an Agent is unappreciated and overlooked. People often complain that Real Estate Agent’s are not worth the commission they charge. For our money, you can judge the calibre of an Agent by how successful they are when the sale isn’t smooth and they have both difficult vendors and purchasers. As an Agent, you are worth every cent of your commission and one of the few who are.

If only every Real Estate Agent where held to the high standards you set, placing value on honesty and fairness within the profession.

Please print off a copy of this email and keep it somewhere to remind you on all those really bad days, how good you are at your job.
Paul, Aveley
Good morning Harber Real Estate. I'm writing to bring to your attention the wonderful experience I had selling my home in Aveley through Mark Jackson earlier this year. It was so refreshing to deal with someone who takes pride in his work & upholds high standards of professionalism in a time when such things are becoming the exception.

From the first meeting with Mark when selecting an agent, i found him easy to talk with and genuine in his approach. As the process of listing progressed, I had the distinct impression that we were in this sale "together" providing positive advice & encouragement where appropriate. I was continually amazed at how he managed to make me feel like I was his only listing. Examples of this include remembering names, facts & circumstances from previous conversations perfectly & being perfectly punctual with home opens & with replies to calls & emails.

Mark's industry knowledge & experience speak for themselves. I received the price I wanted in an unforgiving market & regret that I don't have more properties to sell through Mark.

In summary, thankyou for your professional services - it was a real pleasure to sell my home through you.
Ellen and Marcus
We wish to inform you of the exceptional service we have received from Mark Jackson. For your information, we have also nominated Mark for the REIWA Exceptional Service Sales Award.

After having several appointments with different real estate agents regarding the sale of our home in Aveley, we appointed Mark after meeting him without any doubt or second thought.

From the very beginning, Mark provided exceptional service which exceeded our highest expectations. We found Mark to have excellent knowledge on the market and market trends, especially the market in our area. He provided us with accurate information and historical trends, provided us with helpful hints to assist with the sale of our home, explained clearly the process involved with the transaction of selling our home and he was always able and willing to respond to our enquiries exceptionally quickly (even when our enquiries were well outside business hours). Mark was contactable at any time, nothing ever seemed difficult for him and he always conducted himself in a highly professional manner.

To top it all off, Mark sold our house within 24 hours of it going to market!

The skill Mark clearly displayed during the sale of our home with regards to marketing, negotiating and communicating was at a superior level.

Mark went over and above what we expected from him and he also did so with a friendly and courteous manner. We had complete trust in Mark and we would not hesitate to recommend Mark to anyone. He has very high integrity and an unmatched commitment to service which is rare to find these days, in any industry.

Mark would certainly be a deserving winner of the REIWA Exceptional Service Sales Award. We would like to thank Mark once again for his exceptional service and selling our home, and we wish both Mark and Harber Real Estate the best for the future.

Mark & Lorraine O'Brien, Aveley
Just wanted to drop a line to thank you so much for your thoughtful card celebrating us having been in our Aveley home for two years - so hard to believe, isn't it?!

We were saying the other day that if we ever hear of anyone wanting to sell or buy a home, you'd be the first person we'd recommend. Your service and professionalism are outstanding.

Thanks again, and wishing you all the best.

Susan & Ken 2013
To Mark,

Thank you so much for all your help in purchasing our new house! You have been so amazingly helpful, we have never had a real estate agent quite like you. The whole process was made so easy, it was unbelievable!

We hope to cross paths again with you in the future. We will definitely send referrals your way.

All the best!

Brendan & Kelly
Dear Mark,
Kelly and I sincerely thank you for all the additional support you have provided us throughout this sale. We couldn't have done this without your help and we won't hesitate to recommend you to anyone we know looking for a property or selling a property.
Gary and Marcia Griffiths, Burns Beach
Hi Steve,

I wanted to bring to your attention and highly commend one of your sales consultants Adam Whitford.

We recently purchased a property through Adam and we cannot say enough about how professional, reliable, committed and helpful he was throughout the whole process.

He went above and beyond what we expected from a real estate agent and we will highly recommend his services if any of our friends or family ever need to sell their properties in the future.

We love our new home and are extremely grateful that Adam was committed to making the purchase as smooth as possible for us.

Kindest regards

Gary and Marcia Griffiths

Tanyia Maxted & Ian Jamieson, Kingsley
We chose Ian to sell our properties based on positive visits to his home opens in Kingsley and Woodvale over the years and were always impressed with his positive demeanour and presentation, open communication and achievement of good prices. He gave us excellent advice on preparing our own houses for sale, helped motivate and give us confidence needed, and he and Lauren were real partners in helping our ‘team effort’ in getting the job done to prepare and sell both properties in the short timeframe required, at top prices for our families. We recommend Ian & Lauren as professional, ethical achievers to anyone looking to sell or buy in the northern suburbs.
Mark & Monica Brown, Kingsley
It has been a pleasure to do business with Ian. He is a professional and true to his word. What a pleasure to deal with a man of integrity and a man that is professional.

We feel the same about Lauren!
Jeffrey & Mary Cook, Kingsley
We were completely blown away by the efficiency and promptness of service so thank you very much Ian.
David & Debra Berry, Kingsley
Excellent – to have a person with Ian’s knowledge and experience working for us in this tough market was extremely reassuring.

He certainly delivered the goods!

Laurens efforts were much appreciated.

Many thanks,
Clive & Hilda Reffold, Kallaroo
Ian is by far the most courteous, diplomatic and skillful negotiator I have ever met.
We are more than happy with the service provided.
Bruce & Marilyn Brennan, Kingsley
Having been in business myself for over 30 years Ian is without question the most professional efficient and courteous person we have met.

Congratulations and would recommend Ian if the opportunity arises.

Good afternoon

Please would you be so kind as to pass on to Craig and Steve Harber with my greatest thanks.

Although it has been a few months since our dealings with Craig Waters and the sale of our home at 65/160 West Coast Drive Sorrento, now is finally when I am finding a chance to sit down and say a heartfelt thank you to Craig Waters.

We decided to list our home and, against my better judgement, my husband gave the listing to another agent for 2 weeks. (which was a stressful 2 weeks).

I was wanting to utilise the services of Craig Waters as my husband and I had had dealings with him on another property.

The two weeks with the other agent came and went, and finally I was able to engage the services of Craig.
Even though someone else had been given the listing before him, Craig had such a pleasant manner in which he dealt with us.

Within 2 weeks our home was sold, although there were several obstacles in his way throughout the transaction, Craig dealt with us in a professional and respectful manner.

Craig was such an absolute pleasure to work with and always available for our questions/queries and always had time to listen and help us to understand.

We appreciate the care and attention you showed. Nothing was too much trouble and we are more than pleased with the result.

We cannot thank you enough and you certainly have our recommendation should anyone require it.
It goes without saying that should we need to services of a Real Estate Representative in the future we will track down Craig wherever he may be in Perth.

Craig, thank you ever so much, I wish you nothing but the best in your field, if only the industry had more people like you.

Kind regards,
David and Wendy Toner, Sorrento
Although we have already told you how pleased we were with the service you provided, we felt we wanted to put it in writing.

Previously we hadn’t had the best experiences with Real Estate agents and were apprehensive to say the least, when we decided to sell our home. After seeing a number of agents it was obvious to us that you stood out above the rest. We liked your honest and straightforward approach and you listened to what we wanted, suggested a sales strategy that suited our needs and set a realistic price (more than we had thought and more than other agents suggested). Above all we felt we could trust you.

The quality of the advertising materials was excellent and we were very happy with the way our home was presented both in the literature and on the website. We felt that you were with us every step of the way, returning calls, keeping in touch and taking time to discuss any concerns.

We would have no hesitation in recommending your service and have done so already, as from our past dealings in real estate you are a rarity – extremely professional, highly ethical and the service and outcome was beyond our expectations.

Our home was under offer after the first home open achieving an excellent price. In fact that would be our only complaint – you sold our home too quickly as we thought we would have months to plan our next move!
We wish you every success in the future and will certainly be in contact with any future real estate needs.

Yours Sincerely,
Rene and Alan Kiong, Hillarys
We are writing to express our appreciation in the way Craig Waters handled the sale of our home.
Craig exceeded all our expectations by selling our property within a week of our listing with him. Not only did he find a buyer before our first home open, he displayed his excellent negotiation skills by securing top dollar for our property.

Craig’s initial valuation of our property was $200K above what an agent from another real estate company quoted to us. After negotiation with the buyer, Craig presented us with a very attractive offer which was at the top of his valuation. However he advised us to put in a counter offer as he was very confident that the buyer would be prepared to pay more. We strongly believe that other agents in a similar situation would have advised us to accept the initial offer, which was already attractive considering that this was $200K more than what another agent had said our property could fetch. Craig was not just satisfied with getting a sale; rather, he was aiming for a sale at the highest selling price for us.

After some persuasion, we followed his advise and increased the asking price by another $50K. Craig was right on the money. With his experience, excellent negotiation skills coupled with his keen perception of the buyers’ mind-set, we sold our property for much more than we ever expected. To say that we are extremely happy with the outcome is an understatement. Craig clearly demonstrated he was acting for the sellers’ interest at all times and worked to secure the highest selling price for us. We are happy to pay him more than the scheduled fees in this instance, as we feel he deserved and earned every single cent.

It has been a real pleasure dealing with Craig and we are most impressed with Craig’s confidence, professionalism and his knowledge of the Sorrento area. We entrusted the sale of our home to him and he clearly did not disappoint. The result speak for itself. We highly recommend other owners who are considering selling their property to contact Craig, as they will only be selling themselves short otherwise.

Thank you and warmest Regards,
Sarita, Tapping
It was a lovely meeting we had yesterday, we all really enjoyed our chat with both of you.
Thanks for your promptness and efficiency, you and Liselle make an awesome team.

Mark and Deb Allard, Carramar
Hi Andrew,

Just a quick note to say the retic man visited Keanefield yesterday for the final remediation work so we are all sorted! Thanks for all your help with getting it sold. Very much appreciated. I know you get paid, but your commitment and attitude and follow ups are first class. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their house. From your first presentation to your final determinations to see through the settlement, you and your team were an example for everyone to aspire to.
Hayley Rowntree, Carramar
I know it’s been a while, but I’ve finally got around to sending you an email! Thank you so much for all the work you put in selling our house. The move went smoothly in the end, and I’m still in the midst renovating, but I’m getting there! Take care, and Merry Christmas!
Kirsty and Ian Aldridge, Iluka
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work and commitment with the sale of our home, resulting in an excellent sale price in such a tough market.

After meeting with several other estate agents, you were the one who was able to help us set a realistiv sale price in line with the current market based on your extensive knowledge of the current sales market and trends. We were also very impressed with your marketing stategy and your support with advertising.

Communication through every stage of the process was excellent, keeping us up to date on the day of every home open, providing potential buyer feedback through follow up phone calls and potential offers on our property. It was the little things, like always returning our phone calls promptly and providing us with valuable advice whilst going through the settlement process, that made the difference. You even took the time to help us look for future rentals for our family!

Therefore, your professionalism, reliability and perseverance was greatly appreciated and we would certainly recommend you as an agent to all our family and friends in the future.

We wish you all the very best with your continuing success.
