    Franklin Op den Buysch

    Sales Consultant & Auctioneer

    In some ways the world is changing faster than it ever has, but some things remain the same. The pace of change in the real estate market and buyer behaviour has never been faster, but old fashion values in servicing clients have never been more important. I believe that selling your home is all about you, achieving your goals, and working with you. I study the trends, and to learn from my vast experience in working with sellers and buyers. But first of all I listen to you. I have learnt that selling property isn’t about facts and figures; it’s about emotions, wants and needs. Every house is unique and every selling situation is different. I am thankful for my wife and my families support in what I do. I believe that I work for the best real estate company, a company that believes in putting people first. Thank you for taking the time to read this and to consider my service to you, I am grateful for the opportunity.
