  • Dion Edmonds

    Dion Edmonds

    Real Estate Sales Consultant

    A lot of relationships in the business world are short term. Many people take your money and send you on your way as quickly as possible. In the real estate industry, there are plenty of agents who focus on a quick turnover; selling houses as quickly as possible so as to move on to the next client. Dion Edmonds is not one of those agents. Dion’s approach to the real estate business is very different. He seeks to build long-term relationships with clients, knowing that providing excellent service means that it’s more likely that a client will return in the future, and recommend him to family and friends. Dion isn’t about the quantity of clients, but the quality of client relationships. Quality service to Dion means happy clients, which in turn builds a strong reputation for trust and integrity. He builds his client relationships on truly understanding what the client’s needs are – making sure he knows what the client’s property goals are, and then working to make those goals a reality. This means listening to everything that the client has to say, and giving the client honest feedback, advice, and updates on the progress towards achieving their property goals. Dion believes in the importance of quality marketing for selling a property. Promoting a sale, ensuring information reaches a wide pool of potential buyers is a key part of his selling strategy. Dion knows how to handle tenders and negotiations, but also believes in the benefit of using the award-winning auctioneers at Harcourts to make sure that clients achieve the best possible price for their home. The choice between employing the services of Harcourts’ expert auctioneers and using less experienced auctioneers can mean the difference between achieving your property goals and falling short of them. If you want an enthusiastic agent who will strive to build a solid working relationship and who makes sure he understands what you want and works to make that a reality, then you want Dion Edmonds.
