Testimonials about Amanda Pearce (General Manager Sales)
For almost 30 years I have been a property investor in Victoria and Queensland and have purchased more than 35 properties for myself and family members. During that time I have dealt with many real estate agents - some good and many not so good. After considering all my dealings with you, I would have to place you at the top, as the best agent I have had the pleasure of dealing with.
As you are aware, I am very demanding in terms of information I seek and the deadlines I set. You have been faultless on all occasions - your responses exceeded my expectations in terms of timeliness and content. I note you have often replied after hours and on weekends which I did not expect. Also I have found you to be an honest and sincere person.
During the processes of my son's proposed property purchase, you offered your time to arrange and follow up on matters which I consider you did not have to do - you went that extra mile! Your recommendations for financial and legal services were first class companies which we will continue to use in the future. When my son's finance was declined, you made contact with me where you were cheerful and helpful in arranging the refund of the deposit.
You are without doubt, a most valuable asset for Affinity. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to family and friends for property purchases - I know you would give them first-class service. I also appreciate the time Sean made available after hours to address all my queries.
Recently my wife and I purchased our first NRAS investment property through Affinity Property Australia. Amanda Pearce personally facilitated the sale on behalf of the real estate business. Due to the complexity of the sale, being an NRAS affiliated duplex, I had reason and necessity to deal with Amanda on many occasions for a wide variety of issues and have relied heavily on her business savvy know how and industry specific acumen to effectively complete the sale.
As we were relatively new to property investment, Amanda thankfully was immediately on the front foot to guide and progress us through the various stages :- initial offer, selling price negotiation, contract set up, through to financier and conveyancer dealings. In business terms this was a stressful time for us as there were many twists and turns were it all could have come unstuck but on many occasions Amanda easily dealt with the issues in a timely, professional and importantly effective manner.
From a communication perspective, very important to me, Amanda always promptly returned my calls and emails. Indeed, on one occasion, Amanda had experienced illness and a seriously sore throat and still managed to convey messages verbally which I recall impressed me at the time, going the extra mile.
Post sale I have asked Amanda’s opinion on other properties we were looking at to get her perspective on our potential investment. We regard her opinion highly, as we know how adept she is at facilitating property price negotiations, a difficult and onerous task when your ‘clients’ are both seller and potential purchaser. I have since recommended and passed on Amanda’s contact details to a friend who’s mother was not happy with their real estate agent, confidently knowing that Amanda would most likely improve her situation if required.
Personally, I am glad we purchased this property through Amanda and the Affinity Property team, as it is obvious that they are an exceedingly professional outfit with more than the necessary skills and I have not been let down at any time by this group. I have no hesitation in recommending Amanda to any prospective property investor and/or Real Estate Business.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work regarding the sale of my property. Not only did you manage to sell the house on the second day it was listed, but you managed to achieve over the listed price.
I have sold three properties, but I have found you to be the most honest and personable real estate agent I have come across. Your professionalism to the entire transaction is commendable.
Buying and selling properties can be a stressful process for all involved. However in my experience of dealing with you, you provided me with efficient professional courteous service, great communication, you were always smiling and positive. You remained a dependable focus of information and support. Thank you.
Amanda was helpful and clear with friendly disposition, made the process of buying our first home in Australia easy.
