I would highly recommend Janet If selling or buying property.”

“Recently we purchased a home at Riverside Park in Nerang. Janet Houlihan was the agent representing the sellers of the property. From the first time we met Janet she was professional and supportive. As our purchase was subject to the sale of our existing home, there were a few delays along the way as we waited for our house to be sold. Despite all this, Janet was understanding and patient. She was always available to offer suggestions and advice.


Janet’s professional manner, integrity, patience and warm personality helped make the whole process smooth and worry free. She was open, approachable and trustworthy at all times. It is with great pleasure that I recommend Janet as an excellent professional real estate agent. Thank you for your support, Janet. “

“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.”

We called you Friday, you had it on realestate.com. the next Wednesday and it was sold the following weekend at our first open house.

“When the going gets tough, Janet gets going”. We just wanted to say thank you for your professional service and friendly assistance in the recent successful sale of our house. Your guidance and honest advice made the whole daunting process a breeze. We both appreciated the regular contact and being kept up to date through emails, phone calls and meetings.

“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.
