“Within a week of Janet listing our property for sale we had several parties interested in buying our home due largely to her knowledge of the area and working her client base. Her professionalism and constant updates to us and the prospective buyers meant that not only did we achieve a contract a couple of weeks later but also had a buyer wishing to place a back-up contract as well.


 


Her bi-partisan positive, meticulous approach and attention to detail results in a fairness being achieved for both seller and buyer which flows through into a good sound sale that we all wish to achieve. We knew daily just where things were at which helped us immensely to secure a new home at the same time.”

“I met Janet many years before we eventually listed our property with her, when I was just a curious neighbor checking out open homes that she was presenting in our area.  I was immediately impressed with her openness, honesty and integrity.  Janet is that rare agent that works 110% for the seller, but also has total respect for the buyer.


So when we decided the time had come to sell, she was our first port of call.  At the time we had every intention of interviewing several more agents before deciding on whom to list our property with, but we never did go any further than interviewing Janet.


At our first meeting she presented us with an optimistic price and strategy.  We went with it, and from when we said yes…push that go button on the advertising, we had a contract within a week, at that optimistic price she had nominated.


When you get a bouquet of flowers from the new owners thanking you for selling them your house, you know that she has facilitated a win/win situation.  Could you ask for anything more when you are selling your treasured home?


I would recommend Janet to anyone, not just as a seller, but if you buy a property from Janet you also know that everything is honest and above board.  Personally I think that’s pretty special in the property market. Thank you Janet.”

I would like to extend my thanks to Janet for the professionalism and enthusiasm she showed whilst selling my property at Eden Court. I listed it with Janet on Saturday and on Tuesday she had it sold at the price I wanted. Her care and attention is second to none and the feedback during the whole process was great. Even whilst the buyers were trying to change the settlement Janet kept me appraised of every conversation she had with the buyers. I thank you Janet so much and would have no hesitation in recommending you to anybody. Thank you again Janet.

I would like to thank Janet for being an honest and straightforward real estate agent. She was my real estate agent during the sale of my unit. I was overseas during the selling process, so I was not the easiest of her clients. She had to deal with working in different time zones, and knowing that some documents might only come through the next day.


Not only did she get the value she initially said she would try to get, but her valuation was higher than that of other real estate agents. When one buyer fell through, she would come through with another. It is nice to see a real estate agent who really works for the benefit of the seller and is not only worried about cashing in his/her commission.


If a deal wasn’t what I was looking for, she would support me in not taking the deal and came through with better buyers. She was patient and was incredibly responsive to any questions I had.


I am incredibly pleased with all she has done. And for this, I will always use her services when buying or selling a property. I know she has the clients best interest at hand.

We met Janet whilst inspecting a property that was for sale. We didn’t buy it but were so impressed by her enthusiasm, honesty and “can do” nature we just had to engage her services to sell our home of 27 years. We have not regretted that decision in any way. She kept us fully informed of all enquiries and utilised the internet extensively to give our property maximum exposure. At all times we felt secure as Janet was hard working, honest, straightforward & always had our best interests at heart.

Dear Janet, thank you so much for selling my house. From the minute you walked in the door, your honesty, professionalism, presentation and attention to finer details was outstanding. Your knowledge of the area and the market analysis and research you had prepared before we met was extremely helpful and from that stage I knew I had found the person I wanted to sell my house, Janet Houlihan.


Janet worked tirelessly on open homes and inspections and kept me informed at all times on what the market was saying. The marketing and photos were amazing and the “Janet Touch” helped enhance the house. Nothing was ever too much trouble.


Janet’s positive attitude and feedback and interaction with the buyers was “second to none”. A big thank you Janet for selling my house in a month and helping me move onto the next exciting stage of my life. I would thoroughly recommend Janet as The Real Estate Agent to Sell Your House …… she’s the best!

Janet Houlihan takes a refreshing approach to real estate sales. Obviously dedicated to the task at hand, she remained highly optimistic, courteous and kept the communication flowing. It seemed like only a few days had passed when she produced two potential buyers.


A gated community brings its own challenges, but Janet was able to bring many people through to inspect – so many I lost count. In the end, it was her persistence & dedication that won the contract.


So, thank you Janet, for a job well done.

Janet Houlihan of Houlihan Realty Southport was recommended to me by a friend who said “If I needed an honest reliable agent I would always choose Janet Houlihan .” Thankfully I heeded her advice and contacted Janet gave her my full details, price range and basic requirements and asked her to find me a home. Within a week Janet found me a home which had lots of potential but needed plenty of TLC. This was a project I was looking for, a good basic home in a wonderful position.


Not all sales are straightforward and that is where a true professional agent like Janet Houlihan who conducts themselves in an open honest relationship with both the vendor and buyer really excel. We confronted obstacles with a few aspects of the home which needed to be rectified before a satisfactory solution could be reached. Because of Janet’s experience in a difficult situations she worked passionately to achieve a mutually happy ending and thus a rewarding sale all round.


I found Janet Houlihan of Houlihan Realty honest in placing all the facts before myself as a buyer and the vendor extremely professional which instilled confidence that her priority was to achieve a happy outcome for all parties concerned. This is the difference between an agent and a professional honest agent who stakes their reputation on growing their business on repeat sales and recommendations from happy satisfied customers.


I would personally recommend Janet Houlihan to my family, friends and acquaintances as a person who is trustworthy, reliable, honest and who conducts herself and her business in a very professional manner.

We gave Janet strict instructions to sell our house while we were away on holidays! Janet promised that she would. We left on 1 January and returned on the 16th. This was the quietest of times for sales with every one away on their annual holidays.

Janet tirelessly held open homes on the weekends and private inspections at request, making sure our gardens and alfresco areas were pristine. Keeping us informed every step of the way by text, email and phone calls while we were in Darwin.


We returned late on the 16th and lo and behold Janet rings on the 17th and says “Can I pop around, I have a contract for you!!!!” Imagine our surprise and delight. Not only did Janet keep her promise and sell the house but she also managed to get a very good price.


Nearly everyone in Riverside Estate knows Janet and knows how hard she works to make a sale that is both satisfactory to the vendor and the buyer. Thank you Janet, I am almost over the shock of how quickly you sold the house.

Janet is the hardest working agent we have ever dealt with. The information she presented to us on the current real estate market in our area helped us to make decisions that resulted in the quick sale of our property at a great price. Janet went beyond what we expected of an agent, showing potential clients through at short notice and she always had our best interest as a priority. She followed up on all potential leads and regularly communicated all details to us so we were fully informed of what was happening. We were so happy with the service provided by Janet and Houlihan Realty that we have engaged them for both the sale of our property and the purchase of our next property. Thanks so much Janet.

Hi Janet, Margaret and I would like to thank you for the sale of our property at Quay South, Emerald Lakes. Years ago we had a fridge magnet that used to look at us 24/7 not thinking that one day we would have need to call on Janet to sell our property. Some months ago when we decided that it was time to sell, a timely letterbox drop from Janet jogged our memory about the fridge magnet. We contacted Janet and just three weeks later our property was sold!!!!! Amazing!!!!!


Janet instilled confidence in us and always believed that the price she set was attainable although we had a slight doubt. She said “ leave that to me that’s my job“ and sure enough she delivered!!!!!


Janet has this amazing ability to be a friend, property manager, confidant and most of all has the utmost integrity and honesty when dealing with people from both sides of the sale. We have no hesitation in recommending Janet Houlihan to any person wishing to sell their property.
