Many thanks to you and Matt for the professional way you conducted the sale of our warehouse.
I had consulted other agents in the area but we felt that your company would be better suited.
In particular, I did not want you to give me the story of "what I wanted to hear" but you gave us a realistic price range.
In contrast, another company told me we could expect double the price which i knew was pure fantasy!
With your experience with commercial property in the area, you knew the type of person who would actually be interested in our property and that was exactly what happened.
I think your "no nonsense" realistic approach even during the auction was most reassuring.
We were very pleased with the final price.
Now that the dust has settled on the sale of 103 Church Street, Brighton, I wish (and I speak on behalf of my 3 brothers) to thank you and your team for the outstanding job you did from the moment you listed the property to the day of the auction and beyond.
It is interesting that due to the number of parties who had a vested interest in the property, it was prudent to speak to 3 prominent and active commercial agents before making the decision to list.
"Your submission, marketing rationale and enthusiasm, easily won the day."
You were the most optimist agent regarding price, but you read the market perfectly and even surpassed your own appraisal figures.
We all appreciated your consistent communication and courteous attention. The detail in analysing the buyer interest and profile of the shortlist was comprehensive and comforting. Your efforts in trying to gain editorial coverage went over and above any normal expectation.
You are a legendary aucitoneer, (you would have to be - with your father being acclaimed as the finest auctioneer in Australia) and being an auctioneer myself, I appreciated the excellent job you did on the day, especially your calmness and focus in the heat of the moment.
I would be happy to attest to the very professional service you offer should any prospective vendor wish to talk to me.
Thanking you again.
Dear Matt , Julian and the Nichols Crowder Team,
We would like to thank you sincerely for the excellent service you provided in preparing our commercial property for sale.
Your original proposals were clear, fair and accurate.
"The marketing campaign was well thought out, energetic and very successful."
You responded promptly and efficiently to all our queries and requests.
Your updates and reports were clear and informative.
Your advice was helpful and if at times our choices were counter to your opinion, you held no judgement and moved easily forward with our wishes.
We appreciated your honest and grounded communications with an enthusiastic yet calm and efficient manner.
We believe you related clearly and honestly with all interested buyers.
You effectively managed important relations with our leasing tenant.
You planned and managed the auction exceptionally well.
We are very pleased with the result and would not hesitate to recommend Nichols Crowder in the future.
We approached Nichols Crowder because the ‘old’ company of Crowders had successfully marketed property for the family some years ago and had met the expectations of that time. Also, our accountant recommended them to sort out some leasing problems which we had been experiencing with the property. Therefore, we finally decided to sell.
We found Linda Ellis at Nichols Crowder to be extremely efficient in dealing with these problems. After she had negotiated a much better leasing agreement for us, we decided that the time had come to sell the property. All her expertise in marketing was then unleashed. We were kept very up-to-date with marketing, and given good advice during this period.,
On the day of the auction the interest was very high and the result, helped by the professionalism of Linda Ellis and the Auctioneer, Geoffrey Crowder, was amazing. Wow he can work the prospective buyers!
"The result was way above our expectations,"
and of course we are delighted to be able to now contemplate our retirement with greater confidence due entirely to the great team of Nichols Crowder.
