What do my clients say about me?...
I first made contact with Janet Dickson several months before we decided to put my father’s home on the market. She gave us a thorough report. Properties in
our area, she explained, were in high demand, steadily increasing in value, and if we held on to the house, we would reap long-term benefits. ‘Don’t sell’, in other words, was her advice. I was secretly but truly impressed. I knew then that whatever happened, I could trust Janet. I could see that she was motivated, not by greed for a commission at all costs – but by our best interests.
We did decide to sell...and we just had the best experience from start to finish. I’ve just come across a document I drafted on the eve of the auction, in which I justified why I wanted the reserve set at what I privately considered to be a rather lofty figure. I was a firm seller, I noted to Janet. I was not compelled to sell – but when the hammer fell at a figure more than $300K above my own reserve, I was a speechless seller. Janet Dickson enabled that result to happen. Her professionalism, her profound knowledge of the market, her experience, her advice, her dedication, her trustworthiness, her good cheer, her communication, and the staggering amount of work she invested on our behalf leave us filled with admiration for her. I truly want to honour Janet for what she did for us – and for who she is.

Janet was the most involved real estate agent I’ve ever dealt with. She coached me through the entire selling process, was candid about the risks and opportunities involved in selling and was very clear on what needed to be done to the property prior to listing. Her enthusiasm and attention to detail made all the difference in achieving a quick sale and a good price. Janet is amazing. I would recommend her to anyone, and I’d suggest they follow her advice to the letter. Thanks Janet!

Our journey with Janet started more than a year ago, when we were first thinking of putting our large family home on the market. Janet was unique among the agents we contacted in going the extra mile, and when the time came, picking Janet was a "no-brainer". She has an amazing eye for detail, wants nothing but the best possible outcome for her clients, and at all times was encouraging and supportive. She has an encyclopedic knowledge of the workings of Council and a huge army of useful contacts. The marketing campaign went very well, the auction was very successful indeed and we were able to achieve a very pleasing result, due in no small measure to her hard work. We would list with Janet again in a heartbeat.

Janet, we have really appreciated your advice and support, and it has been lovely working with you. Your professional approach to selling a property was evident from our first meeting, and the marketing programme led by you has been superb. Consequently the result achieved at auction yesterday far exceeded our expectations. We were thrilled! Thank you from all members of the family for your attention to detail, your enthusiasm, your overall professionalism and sound understanding of the market. We wish you every success in the future.

I contacted the company by email to request a market appraisal of our investment property. Janet Dickson’s prompt reply impressed me instantly. Within a week of our initial contact, repairs to my property were done, and the vacant property decorated to enhance its appearance. On occasions during the negotiation stage I would hear the frustration in Janet’s voice. What she didn’t realise was that every time I heard her frustration, she would put a huge smile on my face. She was so empathetic to our needs that I could imagine her hand reaching through the phone and pulling the stress out of me and landing it smack bang on her own shoulders. For this I am truly grateful and I highly recommend her.
