  • I have great pleasure in writing this letter of recommendation for Monty Van Dyk. We have recently purchased a property through Monty and found the experience surprisingly easy and enjoyable. His approach to negotiating was refreshing and we felt that he cared about us as the buyer as well as the seller. We felt he was genuinely looking to find a sale that was fair to both parties. He was accommodating with any additional requests we asked for and helping in arranging access for the required inspecions. He kept us informed along the way of the buying process and acted in a courteous, respectful and professional manner. We have no hesitation in recommending Monty to our friends and family and would use Monty ourselves to sell our home in the future. J Wentworth Brisbane   Jason Wentworth
  • Thank you Monty for being such a great help in selling our business. We have been very worried about what to do but you made it so easy for us and we cannot thank you enough. I am so excited to go on our much anticipated holiday now, Thank you again and i promise to send you a postcard!! Wishing you all the best for the future Sharon and Mick Sharon Mc
  • You're a bloody legend mate!   Michael
  • I am writing to thank Monty for selling our 2 investment properties. I know it was not an easy task as they both had their share of issues but thankfully you never gave up and we got them both sold in the end. I just want to say i appreciate your persistance with both contracts and i am sure most agents would have walked away given the circumstances as we had previously listed them with other agents with no luck at all. Thank you so much again Alison Alison
  • Tips I use to achieve the maximum price possible     Have a very prominent internet marketing campaign. Ideally premier or highlight listing on Realestate.com.au Increase your buyer activity by having less emphasis on the price. This would be by marketing without a price or have price guide with a range of  10% with a recent sales report for reference. Buyers can then look at recent sales very similar to what’s on offer and show their interest accordingly. “If you get the right people to the right property you will get the right price” Create a “fact sheet” for your property showing in detail what your property has to offer. I have seen many a time where a sale has been negotiated and after  settlement has taken place, the buyers has discovered more than they knew about ie solar system, heating for spa, recently installed new hot water system to name a few. If the buyers were aware of these and all other aspects of the property their offer on the property could have been somewhat higher. Don’t be home or be rushing out when an inspection is taking place. Prepare and allow the buyer plenty of time to take it all in. If a buyer is allowed to “mentally move in” they are more likely to want to purchase. Be flexible on terms. Work with potential buyers. If you can fit into their requirements e.g settlement time, you are more likely to receive a favourable offer for your property. Select an agent that is an experienced negotiator and is prepared to fight for you to achieve the maximum price possible. Structure your success fee or commission so that the agent has the best interest to get “top dollar”. Warren Alderton
  • I wish to thank Michael Griffiths on his continued support during our recent management rights purchase. My wife and I had received good advice from our professional which Michael had referred us, this made our property buy much easier and we could move forward with the confidence needed. Even after we had settled, Michael and his wife assisted us with running the office as it was all very new to the both of us. We couldnt have done it without you Michael. Thank you so much.   Sam and Jenny
  • Thank you for all your help with the sale of my unit. I am very pleased the onsite manager referred us to you. I am pleased with the sale price, it is what I was looking for. I will come back to you when I am looking to buy in the future. C Warbaton
  • I have known Alister for a period of seven years and have found him to be an extremely honest and trustworthy person. He has a very down to earth manner and relates very easily with people from all walks of life. Alister has been actively involved in selling real estate in the Surfers Waters estate for approximately five years and over this period, has been successful in sales within the estate. His attention to detail and genuine interest in obtaining the best for the property owner is of paramount to him. I would have no hesitation in recommending Alister as a person of high integrity. Ian Lees
  • At all times I have found Alister to be a reliable, hard working and an extremely honest person.  In his business capacity selling real estate he is conscientious and extraordinarily capable. He has a wonderful capacity to care about his clients and ensure they are always fully informed to ensure they are able to make considered decisions.  Warick Purdie
  • A big thank you to Monty with the sale of our management rights. We have bought and sold 5 management rights previously, but this was the most difficult transaction of the lot. A one stage we never believed it could go through to settlement, but somehow you made it happen(even our lawyers couldn't believe how you did it!). So a very big thank you. Now you need to find us another one!   Trish
  • Monty I am writing to offer a big thank you for your efforts in the marketing and sale of our Brisbane townhouse. We had tried earlier with another agent without any success, so we were very surprised when you had a contract for us within the first week. I also appreciate your advice during the settlement process, especially as we were overseas and communication we difficult. You achieved a great price so we are very happy with the result and wish you the very best in the future. Barry C
