Dear Peter, Just a short note on behalf of the estate of Aunt Patsy and the Guthrie family generally to say how much we appreciated Marshall White’s work and your work in particular in achieving excellent results in the sale of 9 Northcote Street, Flinders and also 1 Northcote Street, Flinders. Both results exceeded our expectations substantially. I know that difficulties were encountered leading up to the auctions and I particular that of number 1 Northcote Street, but they were resolved with tact and diplomacy, which was a credit to you and your company.
I have known Peter Bennison for more than 45 years. Recently he sold my family home in Armadale. He was then successfully able to secure a property for me in Malvern. The negotiations involved were complicated but Peter persevered until a positive outcome was achieved. Peter has always returned my phone calls promptly. He is considerate, professional, always beautifully presented and has always been pleasant when doing business with me. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any buyer or seller. In fact my daughter has just listed her South Yarra apartment with Peter.
Dear Peter, Thanks for your note of May 22 advising that everything remains in train for settlement of our sale. I thought this might be an appropriate time to pass onto you both my, and my sisters, appreciation for a “job well done!” When we three decided to put the property on the market, after over fifty years in the family, our choice of agent was critical. I had four good mates in the industry, and notwithstanding the usual caveats about dealing with a friend, asked for expressions of interest from three of them. Marshall White’s proposal and subsequent presentation was very compelling, and we have not doubted our decision since. Your attention to detail, follow up, advice and regular update meetings were all exemplary. Most importantly, the sale price achieved was at the higher range of expectations! Thank you both, and your colleagues, for a seamless experience, and continued success to you both in the future,
In August this year we employed the services of Marshall White to sell my Mother’s home at 2a Dalny Street, Malvern, 3144. Mr. Peter Bennison was the Sales Executive with whom we dealt with. We found that Peter is a very approachable and experienced Real Estate agent. From the initial consultations with both myself and my elderly Mother, Peter was extremely professional as well as helpful with regard to suggestions on how to prepare the property, how to market it and what all the various options were to gain the best possible outcome for the sale. During the campaign he kept us well informed of interested buyers and organized weekly meetings to discuss how the campaign was progressing. On the day of the Auction, he along with his team could not have been more supportive and guided us on the best strategy to take that day. We were very pleased with the outcome. Geoffrey and I would have no hesitation in recommending Peter Bennison to handle the sale of any property that Marshall White may have in the future.
It seems more than appropriate to send you a letter of thanks, particularly as the number of sales you have conducted on our behalf in years past has been most successful. Your constant reporting of numbers and persons attending, your assessment of levels of interest and the efforts which you and your colleague Mark Harris made at all inspections, kept us well and truly informed. Though settlement does not take place till January 2018, it seemed appropriate to say a big thank you at this point. Jenny & I are happy with the result and consider your advice to conduct the auction when you did, was well justified in the light of the uncertainty in the market place at present.
It was our lucky day when we met up with Peter Bennison and asked him why an apartment that Marshall White was handling was not open for inspection. Peter was most helpful and arrange for us to see over the building at a time to suit us. Through Peter’s company he arranged for us to look over another apartment in Clendon Road which turned out to be just what we were looking for, so we paid a deposit for the unit. As we now had to sell our house it led us to discussions with Marshall White, meeting with Justin Long and the rest of the team who took us down the journey to the most satisfactory auction. Jill & I found the experience most professionally handled by all the members of the Marshall White team who were involved in our sale and we thank you for making the sale so stress free.
