“I don’t just sell real estate here, I live here”
I am writing to thank you for the way you and Dionne conducted the sale of my property, 4304/7 Riverside Quay, Southbank.I was initially impressed by your knowledge of the market and your honesty and transparency during our initial discussions.
That gave me the confidence to trust your judgement regarding the marketing plan you proposed.You did everything you promised, and your communication throughout the process was first class.
The way you and Dionne handled the final negotiations was both comforting for me (being interstate) and successful.
Very professional and worthy of high recommendation.

Dear James Just a note to thank you for all your help with the sale of my Melbourne apartment. It all proceeded fairly effortlessly – no great stress on auction day, just a few nerves!. We obtained the price we expected on the day and the purchasers are very pleased to be moving in there.
However I am really pleased with all your help during the preceding period, you reliably and with enthusiasm managed the whole process, including recommended a solicitor, arranged the photographs, running all the open house inspections including preparing the flat and keeping it clean. And now you are getting my old furniture removed!
This part of the service was invaluable to me because I live in Sydney and couldn't really spend the time needed in Melbourne to do it myself.
Again, thank you.

I recently purchased an apartment at 2/25 Hotham Street, East Melbourne through one of your sales agents, James Edmundson. This is just a short note to say how professional and friendly James was to deal with right from the very first meeting through to the signing of the contracts. I must admit my wife and myself are pretty inexperienced as this was our first investment property which was purchased through our SMSF. James was fantastic but what impressed me was his knowlege about the apartment block and the way I was able to ask him direct questions and almost get his advice and thoughts. Once I had developed an relationship with James I did not play any games I was straight down the line in which I believe he was with me and I was confident that we would get a mutual result, which we did.
In this day and age everyone loves to complain and whinge about everything but please could you pass on my appreciation to James from my wife and myself.
I also received a phone call from Esme today and was again very happy and satisfied with her professional approach and advice in relation to the future management of the property. We are currently saving our pennies with a view of purchasing a small personnel investment apartment within the city limits in the next few months and 100% I will be calling James and your team too see if they can assist us with that.Thanks again and kind regards,
Marcus and Nerida - Purchasers
I was very impressed with James. I have dealt with several estate agents over the years and most don't seem to care much. I felt James was very professional and worked hard on behalf of the seller.

Just a quick note to say thankyou for all of your help over the last couple of weeks. Having never sold a property before I felt confident with it in your hands...Please pass on our thanks to Dionne as well... It was a good result on Saturday and one thanks to you.
Hope you enjoyed the rest of your weekend and I'm sure we'll be speaking over the coming weeks..
Just a quick email thanking you for all the time and effort put in by you towards the selling of my property in Hotham Street.I found the service second to none. I was always kept up to date with everything and would say you went out of your way to make sure all went well.I would certainly use Harcourts in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone wishing to sell or buy property. Once again Thanks
After toying with the idea of selling my first home for some time, James Edmundson was the 4th real estate agent within 3 months who I had through my home to provide a valuation. From our first meeting it was clear that James brought to the table a unique combination of experience, knowledge and integrity. He was the only agent who I spoke to who was prepared to explain his valuation to me and could provide solid evidence to back up his figures, giving me confidence in what I was being told.
James understood that I was undecided as to when to place my property on the market, and never pressured me to take the next step or sign with him as an agent, however was more than happy to continue to provide advice and assistance to me while I worked out what I wanted to do. Being the first time I have sold a house, I was nervous at the prospect of selling, however James made the process completely stress free once I decided to move forward. James was happy to talk to me at any time to answer any and every question I had – never making me feel as though he was too busy, or that I was asking silly questions and as testament to James’ honesty and integrity, I know that he worked hard to achieve a sale on my property that both I and the buyer would be happy with.
Beyond the sale, James has continued to go above and beyond my expectations as my real estate agent, offering to assist with my continuing search for a new property and providing ongoing advise as to the best way to negotiate a price, etc. In short, I would not hesitate in recommending James Edmundson to anyone looking to sell or buy property – he is top of class in customer service as well as knowledge and expertise in the field.
