When we were looking to sell our house in East Victoria Park, we wanted to find an estate agent specialising in the area, who we felt would market our property to achieve the best possible price. Having sold six properties prior to this one (3 in Perth Metro and 3 in other states), we recognised the importance of finding someone with good local knowledge.

Derek made an excellent first impression: he presented professionally and came prepared with sales data for similar properties that had recently sold in the area. We immediately found him friendly, personable and easy to get along with. Derek provided us with constructive advice on how we could best present our property for sale, which we found very useful. Derek spent considerable time discussing the marketing stategy and sales approach that he intended to use to market the property.He was patient in answering all our questions about potential scenarios that could arise (eg. if he received multilpe offers after the first home open, what would his approach be to find the strongest buyer and get the best price from them?). We were confident in Derek’s abilities to negotiate the best deal for us, and it was an easy decision for us to appoint him as our selling agent.

After the first home open, we had an offer by the end of the weekend. Derek negotiated with the buyer and achieved a sales price that we were happy with. The price that Derek had achieved for us was $50,000 more than the price another estate agent had suggested we market the property for! This only confirmed that we had made the right decision in choosing Derek Baston to sell our property for us.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Derek to anyone looking to market their house for sale, particularly in the Victoria Park area. He made our selling experience a positive one, and we would use Derek again in the future.

My Wife and I had not seen Perth or the property and researched Perths suburbs from an unbiased distance. Victoria Park positioned in a green area with plentiful services shone brightly above other surrounding suburbs for value and growth. The amount of young people migrating to the area proves Vic Park is in high demand. …

Lee and Derek went beyond what was required, they were always available when needed and kept us updated regularly which is something we found lacking with our previous agent. I also valued their honest and realistic approach to marketing. Again, previous agents promised the world, but when it didn’t eventuate, you soon become disillusioned. We’re …
