" Work with Luke and George for great results "
Luke and the team gave us a fantastic result for our property sale. From the moment we spoke he provided efficient and honest feedback. He worked with us to achieve the best possible price for our property and exceeded our expectations. Would highly recommend using First National and Luke to all.
" Luke certainly has “ The Goods!” "
Luke Murdoch has a quiet and reserved manner. In reality, he comes across as very competent in sales as indicated by our awarding him of a perfect score in 5-Star Ratings. He was very aware of the sales situation in our local area as regards possible/probable target prices, market volatility and was very helpful in advice regarding arranging the sale. He was at his best when setting out the process for us to ensure a really good coverage on-site and in the media. His communication skills with us and with people who bid on the sale was first class. His ability to quietly but confidently clarify issues was really good. Because of his relaxed but confident manner, he was very credible. We were very happy to follow his advice and at no time did we feel he was exaggerating or potentially putting forward any suspect advice. The sale of the property was an outstanding event for the area, with the response to his sales campaign overwhelming. Almost 50 people inspected the property at Open House and we understand that up to 10 firm offers were made. The negotiation skills that Luke showed narrowed that quickly to 3, and a record price for the area was settled on within 3 days. This was a totally pleasing outcome and reflected the highest regard we felt for Luke Murdoch as an Estate Salesperson. As a person, Luke impresses as a very nice and helpful human being. By the time that the sale was over, we were afforded great assistance and now consider him a great friend. He certainly has “the goods!”
" Cannot thank Luke enough "
On behalf of my father, I would like to thank Luke for his honest approach, thorough communications and positive can do attitude. He ensured our needs and wants were priority. Luke, not only an expert in his field, knowledge of the area and surrounds has a passion for the city-community and is a great family man.We cannot thank Luke enough for the swift sale of our family home. When we say honest, we mean honest. He actually told my father prior to signing the contract to consider not selling. This is something that told us he really has his clients best interests in his sights. Thanks again Luke Dad is over the moon with the result. I have not seen him this happy in years.
" Sold on the first day! "
I selected Luke as he showed professionalism, ethical behaviour and would be friendly and easy to deal with for potential buyers. Luke listened to what I wanted, and dealt with my concerns promptly and appropriately for the swift sale of my property. He managed the purchasers and the negotiations even handedly and got me the price I was after. The property sold on the first day advertised in the paper, for a good price. I think Luke did a great job and wouldn’t hesitate in using him again or recommending him to others.
" We cannot thank you enough! "
Dear Luke, Andrew and I would like to thank you for making the sale of our home a very simple and positive experience for us. We found you to be approachable, honest and easy to work with and these were attributes that we felt would benefit both of us, and the prospective buyers of our home. To achieve a quick sale with a great price result made for a very stress-free sale for us. We cannot thank you enough for the outstanding service you provided and we will feel very confident in recommending your services to others.
" Outstanding work "
We wanted to thank you for the outstanding work you did to sell our home. As a young couple it was easy to be misled by real estate agents as we had previously found out. When we cancelled our contract with another agent due to lack of professionalism, we were left with negative feelings towards agents. It wasn’t until you showed up that we regained the trust we had lost and found that some agents actually do care about making their clients feel comfortable and are treated with dignity and respect.
" Could not be happier! "
I am writing to thank you greatly for your efforts in selling my property. I could not be happier with any aspect of the sale. Your professional approach, feedback, communication and service in general were outstanding. The ease in which the sale was achieved was remarkable, and certainly proof of your knowledge and ability.
