Our salespeople form a cohesive team who bring our ‘family culture’ qualities to your sales campaign. When appointing the best agent to handle the sale of your home, there are definite qualities that signify an exceptional agent.
Whilst I’m not usually one to provide a testimonial, I have made a point of thanking Grayson for his professionalism and enthusiasm in the sale of this property in difficult circumstances. Even if the property had not sold, I would still had provided a glowing testimonial in the knowledge that Grayson had done all he could to give the sale the best possible chance of success. The fact that it sold to a buyer specifically identified by Grayson as a potential buyer shows the level of commitment and skill he displayed in the sales process. I have sold and been involved in the sale of many properties and would confidently say that both Grayson and Marshall White have been the best agents I have worked with thus far. I look forward to the opportunity to work with him and them again.
“Grayson is the only agent who hasn’t made me feel niggly”. After lengthy evaluation of several agents, we decided to rely on Grayson Rayner and Marshall White. After now having bought and sold 7 properties over the last 40 years, Jill’s headline comment says it all. Grayson and Marshall-White demonstrated … - enthusiasm and eagerness to assist and please, - commitment to the task, - a valuation assessment that was literally and figuratively “right on the money” - organisation and negotiation skill, - a positive approach, - client focus, and - respect. Grayson is a pleasant person with whom to work, and we had a general feeling of a well-tuned and harmonious team from pre- through to post-sales (including Carmel, Jaimie, Felicity and receptionists).
Dear Grayson and Duane, I just wanted to thank you again for your guidance, your patience, your positive attitude and your encouragement throughout the whole process of the sale of our well-loved house. It was a long time since we started the campaign and at times a bit stressful. But they say selling a house is never without emotional and organisational stress. You encouraged us and gave us very positive feedback throughout this time, even if it didn’t look like lots was happening. Now we are looking forward to our little tree change. Thank you to both of you.
Youthfully enthusiasm couple with professional expertise that is how I would describe Grayson. At first, I was very hesitant due to Grayson’s younger age, as my real estate experience had previously only been with ‘mature’ and ‘seasoned’ agents of a similar age to myself. Grayson convinced me that he was as much as an expert as any of them, but to add to that he is hungrier and more enthusiastic then all of them. I took a shot and it paid off. Grayson’s professionalism was clear, he was in contact with me constantly and I felt as though I knew every single thing that was happening with the sale. Grayson very much sold me on the idea that he, not anyone else, would be the one making the calls and talking to the buyers. This became so obvious at auction, when we watched Grayson work the crowd, talk to every buyer as though they were his best friend, and as a result the bidding flew over our reserve. Before the auction, Grayson almost gave us a play by play analogy of what would happen and he was spot on! On reflection, choosing a younger agent, which would personally handle the campaign compared to a seasoned director who with respect would have someone else handle the day by day was the right choice for us.
Having bought and sold many times, my wife and I have had varying dealings with real estate agents. Coming across from the western suburbs we did not have a “house to sell” so naturally we were overlooked by most agents in the area. Upon meeting Grayson at an open house, even though that particular home did not suit us, Grayson stayed in contact and assisted us in finding a home. Not being use to the inner eastern market and lack of price guides, time we found a property, or Grayson suggested one, he would provide an honest and accurate price assessment, thus making it a lot easier to narrow down potential new homes.
Thank you all for your work on the sale of 2 Denman Ave. Jake and I were thrilled with the result on the weekend. It was obvious throughout the campaign how dedicated and hard working you all are. It is very exhausting and emotional journey for us vendors, so it is wonderful to feel you are working with a team that are as invested in the result as we were. Thank you for your time and effort through the campaign, and we will happily recommend Marshall White to family and friends selling or buying in the future. All the best with the rest of the Spring season.
We would like to express our honest and sincere thanks to Grayson Rayner at Marshall White. On 25th October 2014, we have auction sold our home through Marshall White, Hawthorn and we are very pleased about the entire outcome. So, we must highlight some of our happy dealings with Grayson as part of our business and moral ethics. Over the entire business transaction with us, Grayson has displayed professional attitude and leadership quality. Whenever we had faced with any difficulty, he has delivered an acceptable and mutually benefiting outcome. His customer focus and customer care are exemplary. He has been very comfortable both as a manager as well as a team member. We are pleased with his fair, mature and professional dealings in all aspects of his business interactions. He is a genuine “people manager” and a true “team player”. We are convinced that he has a tremendous set of human and professional qualities which can as well be seen as a “solid asset” for Marshall White or in that way for any business entity. Above all, he is a good human being. We wish him the very best in his professional achievements coupled with a rewarding and fulfilling life. With our thanks and regards to you—for your time and attention in this matter.
We recently sold our property in North Balwyn with Marshall White. At the start of the process we sought appraisals from three high profile agents. We immediately felt comfortable with the approach and knowledge of the Marshall White team and on this basis engaged them to handle the sale. Our initial confidence was well founded as we can honestly say that ALL aspects were handled in a most professional manner. Ross Stryker and Grayson Rayner both had a thorough knowledge of the market and recent activity / trends in the immediate geographic area and were honest and candid in their assessment and feedback. Having dealt with a number of different agents in the past it was great to be kept informed of all developments in a timely manner and be constantly kept "in the loop" - communication was second to none. Ross and Grayson were very well supported by their office administration team. For example, the attention to detail in the organisation and production of marketing materials made this usually time consuming exercise easy with thoughtful scheduling of photography, copywriting and floorplans, and prompt delivery of all proofs for sign-off . The resulting material was of a high standard which showcased the property in its best light. And the bottom line .... we were very pleased with the final sale price achieved. All in all this has been the best and most professional real estate experience we have had (and we have had a few), and we would not hesitate to recommend Ross, Grayson and the Marshall White team.
I can honestly say that the service and attention shown to us in respect to the planning and final sale of our property was excellent. The numerous calls and follow up discussions of where things were up to plus the on time house openings and attention given to prospective buyers was handled professionally. The advertising was also well spread and the photography of the property was excellent. Whilst the Market appeared to be slightly depressed, and possibly holding off until "the spring revival" may have given a higher selling price we were happy with the result and we are sure the incoming owners were also pleased. The follow up after the sale was finalised, was also appreciated. The attention to ensuring we were happy and contented was shown by all at Marshall White.
Selling our house was a very difficult decision and we were very nervous about what to expect, particularly as selling houses are said to be one of the most stressful life events. However, from the moment we met Grayson and Daniel, our nerves were put at ease and our experience was nothing but positive. From the outset Grayson and Daniels professionalism, sense of team, empathy and honesty won us over. Throughout the campaign we had regular and frequent communication, without feeling pressured, which was in contrast from our experiences of other agents. Nothing ever seemed to deter Grayson and Daniel from getting the best outcome for us. We certainly felt we were all working as a team to achieve the best results for all, without the pressure and limited stress. Not only were we impressed but so were our neighbours and friends, with many commenting on what a great job Grayson did in conducting the auction. It was definitely a team effort with Daniel ensuring the bidders were not pressured, while still encouraging them to continue to participate. If honesty, proven success, communication and integrity matter, then look no further, as Grayson and Daniel are the team for you. Our experience has been nothing short of exceptional and as our journey now shifts from selling to buying we still continue look to Grayson and Daniel for their honesty and advice.
