I write in support of Mr Peter Hutson who has been an enormous help to me in the recent successful sale of our property. He has gone the extra mile from the beginning, from giving advice on its presentation to the expert handling of the sale by negotiation between several potential purchasers. Originally a sale by auction was sought but on receiving no bids the delicate handling of the sale with several buyers involved was successfully achieved and to my great satisfaction. Mr Hutson has been very aware of my circumstances and has been superb in his attention and delivery of the result. I am most grateful and give him the highest recommendation.
Our agent from Barfoot & Thompson provided an excellent personal service and really went the extra mile. Peter obtained the front cover position on the house sales magazine for our house. He also assisted with advice and personal attention at the time of our tenants departure about two months after the sale was secured. I would recommend Peter and would have no hesitation in enlisting his help in the future to sell a property.Harvey Stewart
It was as you say a fairy tale ending with my home of 59 years sold effectively after a professional Marketing campaign and my brand new home located and bought with a smooth transition from one to the other.
Peter and his team worked overtime to market my home of 59 years and smoothing out the many challenges that result from a decision to sell and face the uncertainty of the next step. Peter gave me the confidence to make the decision which my family couldn't. Peter fine-tuned all aspects of the marketing programme offering concessions along the way and bringing high offers in the first week of marketing resulting in a successful unconditional sale. The new home was found in my preferred location and Peter did the negotiating to ensure we paid a fair but favourable price to close out the purchase in one day!
There is the move to come and I know I will have the same care and assistance for that operation from Peter and his team, above and beyond the call of duty. I would certainly recommend Peter Hutson if you are in a similar situation or are just thinking of selling but need the assurance that the sale will go according to plan.
Peter was very professional from the start. He kept me in the loop with local house prices over the years but never inundated me with information that I did not want.
Then when the time was right he was on hand and ready to go. He ran a great campaign and once again informed me of the auction process and the marketing and open home interest through to auction day. If I was to sell another house Peter would be the 1st person that I'd contact.
Peter was an excellent agent for us, he was honest, reliable, always got back to us on any queries. He gave great guidance in how we should prep the home for photos and open homes. He went the extra distance a few times with regards to making our whole street attractive as well as our home, he arranged the council to remove rubbish that had been left by a neighbour who had recently moved out. Overall Peter was excellent and we really can't fault him and his service.Michelle Newton
Just a note to say thanks very much for the wonderful job you did in selling not just our property but Dads as well. It was great that you achieved this especially with the hurdles put in your way. My son said don't worry Peter is going to sell both which you did .Also thanks for considering Dad with his health issues ,you stood back when required which we really appreciated>Not all sales go to plan which ours didn't but you stuck with it and got the right result WELL DONE.I still have a lot of friends in that area so will definitely recommend your services to those that are thinking of selling.Lew Price
We just wanted to say thank you to Peter and the rest of your team who helped us sell our house recently. We are delighted with the result and glad that our choice of real estate salesperson was a good one. Barfoot & Thompson have so much of the market share in the Eastern suburbs that using another agency would be a poor choice, anyone looking to buy here would definitely go through a Barfoot & Thompson open home and be directed to our house if it was suitable. Peter has been really successful in this area, and it shows in his manner and ability to work hard, fulfilling our requests and even lending us his Homelite leaf blower. We were aware just how hard he works to achieve that, every home and client is important to him and that shows in the effort he puts in and the number of sales he gets.
What we didn't know when we chose him was the quality of the support team he has around him. The help we received from his immediate team, and Andy Mac Donald was awesome. We were also really impressed with the number of other Barfoot & Thompson salespeople who brought people through by appointment and through Open Homes, at least one every day for our four week campaign (even when we were at our Northland property!)
So please say thank you to Peter and his team for us and well done to everyone at Barfoot & Thompson.
It has been a very enjoyable experience working with you in buying our new home. As a rule I don't like land agents!!! But you were so helpful and professional I really want to commend you. I will certainly recommend you to anyone I know needing to buy a home, in fact I have already. I would say you went above and beyond the call of duty and always with a smile!
Please come and visit us when we get settled and I'll bake you a cake!
