Testimonials

Throughout my adult years I have had the experience of purchasing a few houses. I had dealt with many real estate agents until I met Michelle Hawkins from Michelle Hawkins Real Estate. It is a very hard decision to choose an agent with many conflicting ideas from agents as giving advice and price, fees and marketing ideas. I had dealt with Michelle on several occasions previously and had sold my home for more than the market price at the time and her fees were very reasonable. She was always prompt, gave me a detailed list of the clients that attended the home open and gave solid advice. When it came to selling my house in Wembley I had no hesitation but to contact Michelle. She was always there for every step of the way. She answered every call and email, no matter what time of the day it was. Her professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. I have spoken very highly to other friends/colleagues to list their home with Michelle and they have done so being very pleased with her appraisal and decisions. I would always highly recommend Michelle if anyone is considering searching for a new home or considering selling their existing home. Thanks again to Michelle from Michelle Hawkins Real Estate for being such a pleasure to work with. Rating 5/5 G Pearson 7.11.2016

I am writing to recommend Michelle Hawkins of Hawkins Smith Property Group who has acted as agent for us in the sale of our house in Pangbourne St. Wembley. Our house is now under offer and is due to settle on September 29, 2014. We have no doubt that Michelle has been instrumental in achieving this sale for us at the full asking price. We initially approached Michelle in June after she was recommended to us by a fencing contractor. Michelle came in with a realistic price which met our expectations but which was also accurate and achievable. As she understood the market and recognized the need to get our house on the market quickly, she arranged in conjunction with a wonderful interior decorator, Louise House, to do a substantial amount of work on our property and to present our house for sale within three weeks. We live in Queensland and were unable to return to Perth so we were dependent on Michelle to manage all the details. At all times she was extremely professional and meticulous in attending to the house and the many details necessary to prepare, and advertise our house ahead of the sale. Many of these details she attended to herself, not only personally purchasing plants for the garden but then planting and watering them. She generously lent us her own complimentary furniture for display and personally managed the actual furnishing and display of the house for us. The result was that our house was completely ready for sale, beautifully presented and advertised to a very high level of quality within three weeks. More than this, Michelle has graciously spent substantial time speaking to us over the phone, not only concerning all the details of the advertising, presentation, pricing and sale of the house itself but she has very kindly taken time to discuss our attachment and regret at parting with a family home which we have lived in, in the past and loved. Very importantly, at no time did we feel that she was unavailable or too busy to speak to us or answer any of our questions. Michelle has been meticulous in attending to our property and its sale. She opened the home three times a week, kept us informed after the home opens, attended to the details of the strata title, and most importantly engaged with potential buyers listening to their comments and perceptions regarding our property and informing us of changes we could undertake to make our house more saleable. We have found Michelle to be gracious, honest and generous at all times in her dealings with us. After numerous phone calls and a meeting at our house in Perth (when I was finally able to travel) we feel we have come to know and to like her very much. We will certainly turn to Michelle again in the future when we have another house to sell, or we wish to buy, and we have no hesitation in recommending her. We are very grateful to her and to the fencing contractor who recommended her to us.

After living at the same address for over 32 yrs we reluctantly made the decision to downsize. This began a three year search, by the end of which we were seriously doubting our decision as we systematically eliminated properties for a myriad of reasons. We had several Real Estate Agents come and offer their services whilst valuing our property. Their approach to us ranged from the "ho hum", I'm actually doing you guys a favour. To the high flying number crunchers that gave us figures more suited to Dalkeith than our middle class family suburb. To say we were not impressed is an understatement and further reinforced our commitment to stay where we were. A visit to a home open in Edgewater brought us in contact with Michelle Hawkins. We loved the property she was showing and we invited her to visit ours to value it for us. Michelle arrived at our home with a comprehensive resume of the suburb, surrounding sales in the area and an impressive, easy to follow guide as to how the selling and buying process worked. Right from the start her professionalism and dedication shone through. She eased our fears (Not having been in the market for over 32yrs) and gave us confidence that her experience in the industry would guide us comfortably through the process of buying and selling. Michelle loves her work and this shows in everything she does. To say she goes the extra mile is an understatement, she knows no bounds when it comes to helping her clients. You are informed every step of the way. Around her is an amazing team of office staff and tradies of every description, including her very able husband Jeff, she can call on to do those little repair jobs that are needed when coming to the market. In valuing our home Michelle gave us a realistic price that matched exactly where we believed our property was on the market. In selling our home she achieved exactly that price. Her commission rates were very reasonable and the advertising costs below what we were expecting. We have now moved into our lovely new home in Edgewater. It is without reservation that I can recommend Michelle Hawkins and the team at Michelle Hawkins Real Estate to anyone wanting to sell or buy property. WELL DONE MICHELLE, (ten out of ten)!!!!!!
