A few months back, I contacted Jeanette to help me with selling my family home and to purchase a new home. I have dealt with Jeanette in the past so there was no hesitation asking her to help me this time. I have come to value Jeanette's professional (she has high standards) opinion and guidance she provided throughout the journey. Nothing was ever too big or small for her to do and she would often go out of her way to help me with:
supplying some stuff for my house, i.e. chair, bathrooms things etc
- pointing out where to place things to get the best view for that room
- suggesting water blasting decks areas etc
- picking me up to show me various properties
While trying to find a new property and on one particular visit, it hit home to me that some salespeople out there really do not care about or provide service to potential buyers. I remember thinking on this occasion, "I am so glad Jeanette is selling my house and not this salesperson", as she would never have treated any potential buyer in the manner that salesperson treated me. This in itself speaks highly of Jeannette's integrity and more importantly doing right by her customers.
It is an honour to know Jeanette and outside of a professional relationship, I do view Jeanette as a friend and trust her discretion when dealing with what for me, was a very difficult situation and upsetting time. She would always listen without passing judgement and was just there for me.
I would highly recommend Jeanette, (and do) to others looking to sell/purchase a home. She demonstrates high values and ethics and is a real asset to the company.

My wife and I have been dealing with Mrs Jeanette Skewes for all of our property transactions over the past 24 years. During that time, Jeanette has assisted with the purchase and sale of some 5 properties, as well as providing us with valuable market and other property related advice. Jeanette has assisted with sale and purchase through direct negotiation and also acted on our behalf at auctions.
Jeanette has given us the most exemplary service in every aspect of our real estate dealings. She is thorough in her preparation, is very professional and responds promptly to our every request. The advice she has given us has always been quick, well-balanced and pertinent. On top of her expertise, Jeanette has a very friendly manner and we count her as a good friend. We couldn't be happier with Jeanette's performance to date and she comes with our highest recommendation.
I am delighted to say that I had the best experience with Barfoot & Thompson all due to Jeanette Skewes, who sold my house. Wow, if you want your house to sell for the best price and have the best marketing and salesmanship, then this lady is who you need. Not only did she live up to everything promised and more, she took ownership from the get go organising my house to be water blasted to sorting a handyman for the day to do those jobs only a handyman can do, who was highly professional and removed my excess rubbish to the tip. As I work full time and a single mum , it took the stress out of getting my house ready to sell in less than two weeks and what a great result. So if you want your house selling in the quickest time with the best results and highly professional, yet warm and friendly Jeanette is your agent, I highly recommend her. Many many thanks.Lisa Holt - Torbay
"Jeanette, you were prompt, keen, honest, always contactable, went the second mile without hesitation, nothing too much trouble, full of energy. You had intuition, flair, contacts with tradespeople, and we appreciated your advice. It was a pleasure doing business with you and Ben. You assured me you could manage the work involved in getting our unit to be sale ready and we were happy to see the transformation. We had every confidence in you, and were delighted with all aspect of the sale.. time wise and money wise. As absentee landlords, your help was invaluable, and you were a pleasure to work with, and we like to think we have made new friends in the process."Dave & Pat Mathieson - Sunshine Coast
"Jeanette was referred to me through the Barfoot and Thompson Rental Department. Upon listing the property Jeanette handled everything that is required to market and sell my investment. The photography and marketing was first class and she regularly kept me informed after open homes and buyer viewings. There were a few issues that need to be addressed at the property and she organised the necessary trades people and kept me informed every step of the way, nothing seemed too much of a bother.
Jeanette was courteous, professional and energetic. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to any perspective seller or buyer. She unreservedly went the extra mile, often putting herself out but made the whole experience absolute fun!"
"Jeanette was a pleasure to work with especially considering we were based off shore. She proactively managed the readiness of the property, the tenant communication & ultimately secured a a great sale price for us. Her responsiveness to our queries was purely impressive and her graciousness with our nerves was lovely. We would definitely recommend Jeanette to those looking for positive sales experience."K & G Blokker - Sydney
"Jeanette provided excellent advice & assistance in the presentation of our property. She was helpful, encouraging and realistic in her assessment of values and in recommending what would and would not provide value in presenting the property. She was energetic and enthusiastic and I would recommend to friends without any hesitation."R & K Gordon...
"We have known Jeanette for 23 years and have purchased/sold up to 6 properties during this period. For this we have exclusively had Jeanette handle all our business. We have in the past recommended her services to several persons and would have no hesitation, continuing to do so".Z & H Daruwalla...
"Jeanette came highly recommended and her calibre was immediately recognisable. Her experience and expertise showed in her ability to listen (not railroad or pay lip service) and come to a very professional sales promotion. Jeanette brought a top sales record, clean business ethic and total commitment to the job. The circumstances surrounding our sales required great sensitivity on Jeanette's part. She looked after us and the property over and above the call of duty."The McCulloch family...
