Testimonials

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)!!!!!!

Over a five year period I watched in despair as my investment property was gradually wrecked whilst being managed by one of the top, award winning management companies in West Australia. The company failed to update the property condition report between tenants and after a major upgrade of floor coverings and installation of a new kitchen and laundry. Due to their incompetence an almost new dishwasher was thrown out, the gardens were ruined and the driveway partially wrecked. Due to the high staff turnover within the company, different property managers inspected the property at the 3 monthly inspections and none reported the new kitchen. In fact they did not even realise that the tenants had a dog or that other family members were now living in the house without permission. It was a tremendous relief when Michelle from Michelle Hawkins Real Estate took over the management of the property. In record time she ensured that the dishwasher was replaced and all damages repaired. I was most impressed with her professionalism, her attention to even the smallest detail and her highly effective organisational skills. Now that Jenny Fraser has joined her, I now have the peace of mind knowing that the property is well cared for by a small team of true professionals. It is essential to have consistency when managing properties, especially when the owner lives overseas. Michelle and her team now also manage my sons property. They assisted in having the property renovated, organising quotes and installations for new floor coverings and window treatments. In addition they found an exceptional handyman who renovated the gardens and repainted the whole property at a very reasonable price. I can highly recommend Michelle at Michelle Hawkins Real Estate and her team of 5 to anybody who cares about their investment properties. They go above and beyond to ensure the properties are well maintained and owners and tenants are looked after and treated fairly. Best wishes Eileen Mackenzie Xabia, Alicante. Spain

15 May 2017 Re: Testimony about Sales Experience with Michelle Hawkins for the sale of our home located at 5 Drew Street Wembley. Dear Michelle Thank you for your professional and delightful support in selling our home. We particularly enjoy your local expertise and practical support. We are happy to testify about any of the sales experiences with you. As many people may experience, selling a home can be more stressful than buying one. Our previous experiences with other real estate agents have been mostly negative. Despite their persuasive sales pitch in the beginning, when it comes to the process of selling, they usually asserted us, to the point of intimidation, to sell quickly at below market price. In contrast, your patience, connection with the local community and appreciation of the property and its future growth have been very crucial for us. We had witnessed these professional skills demonstrated in many of your home open, long before we purchased our property in Wembley. Our home was sold one month after the listing, despite property prices in Perth being on a significant decline. However, your expertise and availability to have a thorough collaboration have been the fundamental driver in our quick sale. From positioning a particular pillow on a sofa to finding the right roofman, the attention to detail and the can-do attitude were impressive. We appreciate your generous assistance, and it is our pleasure to recommend you as the number one real estate agent to anyone. Warm Regards
