This was my very first experience selling a property & I was initially a little apprehensive with the whole thing. I have heard numerous nightmare stories of 'dodgy' real estate agents in the media & experiences from other people. Simon is far from this stereotype!!! He was more than happy to answer every question I had, regardless how basic it was. With Simon's people skills & obvious knowledge of the industry & area, I had the utmost confidence in is judgement & advice. Leading up to the auction, Simon, his wife & his staff worked extremely hard to give my property the best advertising possible. His wife even demonstrated her dedication to my sale by doing a letter box drop in freezing temperatures & pouring rain. I was regularly given feedback after every inspection & emailed a comprehensive report on how my campaign was progressing. On the day of the auction, Simon & his supporting staff from Hocking Stuart ensured that the sale went smoothly. I listened to the progression of Simon conducting the auction & I was extremely impressed. The result of the auction - I got a price well exceeding my expectations!! I am confident this was due to Simon & his staff hard work during my campaign. I have no hesitation in recommending Simon Wendt to any one who is selling a property.
