We have not separated Mike and Claire in writing this testimonial, as we felt that their success and achievements came from working together. I referred to them as the dynamic duo. We can only reiterate the words of others, that the work they put in behind the scenes is immeasurable. Such was the intensity of their input that they made us feel as though we were the only client they had on their books. If you have them with you, you have the best!Carl & Bev Anderson

"We would recommend Claire to anyone, she helped us to sell our house with an outstanding result. We had lived there for very close to 25 years, so the thought of getting our house ready and on the market was a very daunting one. But when we spoke to Claire we knew we were choosing the right person, she made us feel very comfortable with the whole situation. From tips and advice when we were renovating, the marketing process and the auction itself. It made us feel at ease and as there were many questions to be asked Claire was always there to answer them, but also giving us space and time to think about things we needed to think about. We got a great result and thank Claire very much. If you need someone who listens, explains things and is helpful and friendly then Claire is the one."Darryl & Debbie
