“Having dealt with Alan for the past three years we have found him to be honest, reliable and willing to go the extra mile to source and supply services required. Also very approachable and professional in his job.” – Christine and Jeremy

“Having worked in real estate for many years as a salesperson and a company owner, I was hesitant to use another agency and licensee to sell my investment property but, having been impressed with Alan when I first met him at an open home, I decided to give it a go. I couldn’t have been more delighted with the result! Not only was Alan totally professional, but he took the worries and considerable work off my shoulders and I was able to relax, confident that all the details were being taken care of.  Nothing was too much trouble,  Alan’s communication and team work skills are wonderful, and I was kept in touch and up to date at all stages of the process – plus he was fun to work with! Alan worked incredibly hard to maximise the highly effective “Harcourts Team Machine”.  I was confident that the best outcome would be achieved, which it was, with a sale price and conditions for the property in excess of my expectations – and all within 2 ½ weeks of marketing! I would highly recommend Alan and would not hesitate to work with him again. Thanks so much Alan and every best wish for the future – you deserve to be truly successful!” – Jane Ross
