" Highly recommend "
We started looking for houses on a Saturday and were lucky that 2 of them were with Andrew. Only 1 of them was in our price range and 6 days later it was ours without going through the stress of an auction. Andrew makes this house buying business look easy, because it was. Highly recommend.
" Absolutely brilliant to deal with "
Andrew, Melinda and the team at Blake Property were absolutely brilliant to deal with during the sale of my mothers house. Not only was the business side of the sale executed professionally and smoothly, but also the personal side of what was a very emotional sale was treated with the utmost care and compassion. Both Melinda and Andrew were wonderful professional and emotional supports throughout the entire process. I cannot recommend Blake Property highly enough. A fantastic team
" My house was sold above my expectations "
My house is modest and I had concerns it will not be a priority for a successful agent like Andrew. I am happy to be proven wrong: not only Andrew took my property seriously, he advised me on what to be changed in order to make it pleasant to buyers. His PA Candice, did arrange and coordinate the army of tradies in order to deliver all maintenance tasks on or before schedule. Finally thanks to Andrew’s great negotiation skills a knowledge of the market my house was sold above my expectations.
