……and so the search began to find a Real Estate agent to sell my parents’ home. Dad had suffered a stroke, impacting his mobility making a home with stairs unsuitable and Mum with health issues of her own didn’t want to move. So we were looking for someone extraordinary who would be kind given the situation and professional to get the job done!
My husband suggested John Vujnovich from Harveys Real Estate, so I sat down to read what other people had said about this guy. The testimonials were glowing and I thought no real estate agent I’ve ever met is that good.
That was the beginning and now this is the end and I have to agree with what I first read about John. He handled our situation with kindness, patience and charm. He thinks outside the box, adapts rapidly to change and perseveres. Throughout the process John maintained a standard of effective communication via emails, text and phone calls as required. We always knew what was happening and never felt out of the loop.
We have recommended John to family and friends who are wanting to sell their home, I’ve met some great real estate agents but John tops the lot.
I am writing this letter to extend our gratitude for the great experience we had when listing our property with Harveys, more specifically - John Vujnovich. We had previously only ever bought and sold properties privately so we were a bit sceptical of going with an agent but John put forward a good case as to why his ‘Set Date of Sale’ strategy could achieve a far better result with far less hassle. When talking prices I remember John saying ‘You just might be pleasantly surprised’ while I was thinking ‘You just might be surprised at how hard we going to be to surprise’. If we were going to use an agent we were expecting top dollar for our property. John was wise to suggest we keep this figure to ourselves to avoid giving him a ceiling.
After listing we had our first open home on the Saturday, multiple offers by the Wednesday, unconditional by the Friday and a result that more than exceeded our expectation. Needless to say we weren’t just surprised we were absolutely thrilled.
John obviously has a talent when it comes to negotiation but we were particularly impressed with his proactive and professional attitude towards us. John got things moving quickly but was happy to accommodate feedback so we continued to feel like we were in control minus the stress.
To top it all off John spent settlement day running a few unexpected errands for us to keep both parties happy. Above and beyond the call of duty and much appreciated!!
Unfortunately we are moving on from the Peninsula but we will be sharing our experience of Harveys and John to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area.
Just to acknowledge the superior service you provided in the sale of our home. Your commitment and professionalism ensured we got a result which exceeded our expectations.
We are very grateful to have selected you to handle the sale of our most valued asset and have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone thinking of buying or selling real estate.
Please feel free to use this email in any promotional material as you have certainly earned the privilege.
Warmest regards to you and yours and once again please accept our thanks for a job extremely well done.
Hi John, I just wanted to thank you for the outstanding service and end result on our property. Our mother can now move on knowing she got the very best dollar from the marketplace. We meet a number of agents and we can quite honestly say you were streets ahead of the rest. Your knowledge, professionalism and advice stood out and we thank you once again.
Choosing someone to sell our house was a big decision. We were moving overseas, so we needed to sell within a specific time period. It was our first home and we wanted a salesperson who would showcase not only the potential of our home but also the area, as well as making it an easy and stress-free process. John demonstrated that and more. John was informative at all times, approachable, honest and professional. Above all, he was knowledgeable of the local area and that was irreplaceable. He showed so much passion for our home and really understood why we had loved living there so much. We have no hesitation in recommending John and Harvey's Te Atatu to anyone who wishes to sell their property.
