"Thanks for everything Simon
Simon is very pleasant, polite and presents himself well. He introduced a client, kept us well informed during the process of negotiation, resulting in successful sale of our house. Simon is very approachable, responsible and reliable to deal with......with thanks & regards."Priyaranjan & Anu
"I recently bought a property through the Barfoot & Thompson real estate agency. I found the people at the agency to be an absolute delight, in particular the agent who negotiated the sale. Simon Lu is an energetic and friendly character that listened to what I wanted. I had on two previous occasions tried to verbally negotiate a price on properties I was interested in with a different agency. The agents would simply not negotiate verbally, they insisted on a contract. Both of those sales came nowhere near an agreed price even though I gave those agents my top dollar prior to signing the contracts. Time and money wasted on my lawyer. Simon didn't need to be asked twice, After I viewed the property a couple of times I called him to ask if I could see the property again and make a verbal offer, as always throughout this process he was obliging and very keen. Not only did he get me another viewing and agree to verbally negotiate, he managed to get the sellers to come to the agency to verbally negotiate the price in the middle of a week day. He had us in separate offices and spent more than two hours negotiating, on this occasion we could not agree on a price and left it there. A few days passed and I decided to offer a bit more on the property, again Simon organized for me to see the property and again he organized the sellers to meet us to negotiate in the middle of a week day, this time at the property. I enjoyed the sun on the deck whilst Simon negotiated with the sellers inside the house, it was another hour or so of negotiating which ended just two thousand dollars off the mark. Eventually we met halfway and the contract was signed. Simply put, without Simon this sale would not have happened. At no time did I feel like I was putting Simon out, even though I called him numerous times after hours and during the weekend. If my call went to voicemail he would call me back within minutes. Simon is one real estate agent that earns his commission."Chris Reid
"After deciding to sell our house we went through a process first to choose an agency then an agent that was honest and someone that was going to work for us!
We started attending open homes for our next move and met Simon at some of the properties, clearly Simon was working very well for the vendor.
We engaged Simon to have a meeting at our house to discuss a selling proposal.
At no stage did Simon promise a price that was unobtainable instead we felt very comfortable with suggested price range and the strategy involved to sell our house through Barfoot & Thompson. We accepted Simon as the right agent for us.
During the 3 week period prior to auction Simon worked relentlessly, gave us continual feedback and we found the Sunday night E-Mailed report particularly well presented with prospective purchasers giving their own appraisals.
Due to Simons hard work, devotion and professional conduct we had a very good result at the auction. As stated before, if you want an agent that works just for you without compromising deals, Simon is the man.
Good luck Simon and to anyone else who is lucky enough to choose you."Peter & Jing
"As the new owner of a property in Kelston, I really appreciate Simon for his professionalism and hard working. Without his efficient work, I may lose this great opportunity to become the owner of this fantastic property.
As a happy purchaser, I would like to thank Simon again for his excellent job. I will refer Simon to my friends who want to buy or sell a property." Lucy He
"We would like to thank Simon for getting out property sold. As we need a big house for the big family, Simon helps us to sell our current house. He got the property sold within a short time with his positive attitude and profession. Thank for his excellent job, we both satisfy to the result."Tim & Jessie
