“Having previously purchased another property, we were hoping for a quick, fuss free sale.  You and the Place team had a great turn out to our open houses and secured an offer after the second open.  Thank you for making a stressful time as easy as it could be.” - Brett McAleese and Cassie Dittman

"We recently engaged Sacha Hennessy to sell our much loved family home in Bardon. She kept us informed from sign up through to settlement and ensured the process was handled with a combination of professionalism and determination. Sacha is extremely hardworking, honest and always willing to listen and assist. We recommend that you work with Sacha in your property sale or purchase."

"I recently engaged Sacha Hennessy to sell my rental property in Petrie Terrace. It was important to me to have confidence in my chosen agent as I live in Melbourne and was not able to be in Brisbane for any part of the cam-paign. Sacha impressed me with her attention to detail in planning the campaign strategy. She helped me prepare the house for sale in my absence and made me feel at ease with constant communication throughout the sales process. My tenants were also thankful of Sacha’s professionalism and sensitivity to their needs during the campaign. I had several offers within weeks and Sacha worked hard to negotiate with all parties to achieve the best result for me. I would recommend you use Sacha and the Place team to sell your home."

"To Whom it May Concern,

Sacha Hennessy was personable, knowledgeable of the market, flexible to our needs and enthusiastic about our property through all stages of the sale process. She provided an honest and accurate appraisal of the property value from the beginning, a clear and effective sales strategy, and kept us up to date on interest and feedback over the relatively short time our property ended up being on the market. We were very happy with the process and wholeheartedly recommend Sacha and the Place West team’s skill and professionalism in assisting you with your property sale."

We cannot recommend you highly enough. We chose you because of you calm, confident, and well-presented manner. You not only had an impressive sales plan but you carried it out in an unbelievably fast timeframe and achieved a price we were more than happy with.

We are extremely pleased that you supported us in selling our unit. Our interaction with you first came about through an enquiry we made about a home that Place West Real Estate had recently sold. An email we sent was responded to promptly followed by phone call from you. We were impressed with your approach to customer service and this led to us engaging you to sell our unit not long after. You impressed us with your professionalism, knowledge of the local area, energy and commitment to supporting our goals for the sale of our property. You worked for us to achieve the best outcome possible and we were so pleased to achieve such a good outcome within a very short period of time. We would highly recommend you to support the sale or purchase of any property and have had no hesitation in recommending you to our friends and colleagues.

You had been so friendly and professional in the years since we last purchased a property that it was a very easy choice to use you and Place again when selling our house.  Despite media reports of a bad housing market, you and the team at Place had a great turnout to our open house and secured an offer after just the second open. We were delighted to sell our house in 8 days and with no finance clause we were unconditional a week after. Thanks to you and your team for making a stressful time as easy as it could be.

We are extremely delighted with you as you helped us once again sell our house and meet all our expectations. There was plenty of hard work on your part and we are glad that it has all paid off.  We have known you for the past 5 years and we trust your advice and help you have given us.  You were patient and diligent at each stage of the sale process.  We think that it is your patience and professionalism that has helped us secure our past two sales. Keep up the great work!

I met you and your team a few years earlier when you handled the sale of my brother’s house.  I was very impressed with your expertise and the result you achieved, so I decided to engage them to sell my investment property in Red Hill. From the outset you and your team were very impressive and your level of professionalism, work ethic and knowledge of the property market was fantastic. You know the market and the inner-west area very well.  I was kept informed at every stage of the campaign and after a few inspections you advised me to go to auction, as you thought this would achieve the best possible price.  You were right!  There were a large number of bidders on auction day and my house eventually sold for $200 000 more than I expected. I was very happy with the entire process and I was obviously delighted with the end result.

You and your team provided exceptional service during the difficult time of selling our father’s property in Ashgrove.  The advice and suggestions you gave us on how best to present the property helped us prepare it and as a result we achieved a very quick sale. At all times your team were very professional. Communication from you was brilliant with regular updates and right from the start we felt we had made the right decision in choosing Place to sell our property. Your enthusiasm and knowledge of the real estate industry was evident and we would highly recommend the services of Place. Should we want to buy or sell another property in the future we would have no hesitation using Place again.

We are very impressed by your service and professionalism.  I think we have learnt that it is not always better to get the cheapest deal if you are not going to get the best quality.  I am amazed that you sold our unit in just over a week. Huge thanks again

Recently I had the pleasure of working with you and Place West to sell my house in Rosalie. You were practical, knowledgeable, very easy to deal with, helpful and in a nutshell, I would use you as an agent again and recommend you to friends and family. I was extremely pleased with the favourable result that Place achieved for me. Not only did you achieve a quick outcome but you also helped me receive a good price for my property. Your service was second to none and you were always willing to speak with me anytime of the day to answer any questions I had. Further to this, you always kept me updated throughout the process. I would recommend Place to anyone as their service was very professional.

In all our dealings with Scott we have found him efficient, charming and astute. The sale of our property was completed promptly and without complications- this was due to Scott's diligence. I would have no hesitation in recommending Place and would most certainly use them again in the future.

In November last year our house had been listed with another longstanding local agent for some two and a half months and we were despairing of ever receiving an offer, with very few groups attending our open houses or requesting private viewings. This was occurring at the outset of the global economic downturn and the agents seemed very hesitant and unsure of just how to operate in this market.

In complete contrast, you and Scott MacDonald, were a fresh breeze, breathing life into the selling of our home in Red Hill. You instilled confidence with your friendly and energetic approach, and importantly, were unfazed by the changing market, meeting its challenges with a fresh perspective and a proactive stance. In less than 1 month we had received 3 offers, one of which eventuated in the smooth and surprisingly painless sale of the property - and this was over the Christmas period, a time that brings its own set of challenges for agents, vendors and buyers.

For most people, the sale of a home is a stressful time: you and the Place team managed to alleviate that stress significantly - and gave us faith that all would be fine. That faith was well justified and so it is without reservation that we thank you, Scott, and all at Place, and offer our wholehearted recommendation to any prospective clients

Buying and selling in the current climate can be fraught with stress and uncertainty, but that's just what we have done - and thoroughly enjoyed the process, thanks to the enterprise and enthusiasm of Scott MacDonald and Tim Douglas.

Their knowledge of the local market and calming influence helped us buy our new house in Paddington and sell our unit at Rosalie. Their insights and experience were invaluable and provided great peace of mind.

We'd be more than happy to recommend them to anyone contemplating the purchase or sale of property in this part of Brisbane.

Kim and I would like to thank you, Ben and the team at Place West for helping us buy our new home at Red Hill. We dealt with a lot of agents in our search for the right home, and we found dealing with your office very pleasant. Inspections were arranged without hassle and proceeded on-time. Contract negotiations were handled sensitively with an understanding of both parties' objectives but with a clear determination to secure a sale. Now we just can't wait to move in next week.

Thanks again

“We had our property for sale for some time with another agent, until we met you. I was very impressed with your mannerism and professionalism, which prompted me to change agency. Your approach to selling our unit was a winning formula with your expertise, perseverance and negotiating skills finally clinching the deal. I recommend you to any vendor and we will certainly be using you in future to sell our other property in Brisbane.” - Susan Botica

“After three months with another real estate agency, going through the frustration of cleaning for numerous open houses, waiting with baited breath for feedback and then not receiving one single offer, we turned to him and his team for help. 

He could not have been more professional. He knows real estate and he knows this area, so he understood who our target market was and designed the campaign accordingly. The effect of his marketing campaign was immediate; inspections increased; interest was shown; offers were put on the table. And he worked every viewing and every lead looking for the ‘right’ buyer. Then on the day before the auction, true to his word that he would get us the best possible price, he came back with an offer that we were happy to accept. I can’t recommend him highly enough.”

Tim makes selling a property look easy, but I suspect he's able to do that because of an enormous amount of work, expertise and thought that lies beneath the calm exterior.”

Tim Douglas was the first and only agent I thought of to call when considering selling my property in Toowong. Two years prior Tim had sold to me my first property in Brisbane after moving from interstate. His local knowledge of the area was unsurpassed as was his excellent service and follow up on, and after purchase. The subsequent sale of my property exceeded my expectations, and it was not surprising that Tim and his team achieved a great result and in record time! The consistent and honest communication, professionalism and customer service to all stakeholders from the team at Place West has been at the forefront of my high regard. Tim also assisted with sourcing short term accomodation for me after settlement. Tim and his team are the" one stop shop" that I have, and will continue to highly recommend  at any chance I have.

"Thank you so much once again for achieving a great result for us at our auction on Saturday. Your professionalism throughout the campaign has been amazing and you have done a great job throughout the whole period. I was extremely impressed with your skill as an auctioneer and would have to say it is the best I have ever seen. Your ability to welcome the crowd and make it a good experience for all is a talent that not many people have. I have had a few people phone me since to say a very similar thing so referrals from the sale will be strong. All round it was a great experience and as I said we are thrilled with the outcome."

"We were extremely impressed with your professional approach when we engaged you to sell our property in late 2011. 

After having previously sold 13 residential properties in New South Wales and Queensland via a number of agents, we have experienced various levels of service. 

Without doubt you have been the most competent and effective agent we have dealt with over this 30-plus year period. 

We adopted all of your recommendations and marketing programme and are very pleased that we did. 

The experience was such that we would most certainly engage you to act on our behalf in any future sale opportunity for property in his field and cannot recommend you highly enough."
