From the outset, we were impressed with both the persona and calibre of Dirk.
Prior to listing our first property, he presented an array of current and historical data on similar properties in the area which helped us pitch our house at just the right price. In less than 2 weeks the property was under offer and we couldn’t have been happier!
It wasn’t long before we were working with Dirk again and once again his professionalism shone through and not to outdo himself but he managed to secure a buyer within a week!
All in all a great experience and look forward to working with Dirk again in the future

Dirk, We would like to thank you for marketing and selling our home in a most pleasant and professional manner. In particular we like to thank you for your attention to detail, follow-up and just being there for us. We were a little apprehensive about the whole process of selling.
However right from our first meeting when you gave valuable input as to the likely value of the property, the best way to advertise and the prospects of a reasonable sale left little doubt in deciding to appoint you as the agent.
It is worthwhile noting that from the first time you visited us it took less than 10 weeks to complete the whole process and all of this was stress free. Your marketing strategy was perfect and we have no reservations recommending you to any party considering selling their property.
After much deliberating we decided it was time to sell our much loved first home. We invited a few select agents to give us an appraisal, I was about to renege on our decision to sell as it was getting all too hard when thank goodness Dirk walked through our door.
As soon as we appointed Dirk everything became easy. He took on our stress & anxieties and supported us on our journey. Everything moved quickly & efficiently, Dirk kept us informed during the whole process & within a few weeks we’d sold above and beyond our expectations. Dirks enthusiasm, professionalism, consideration and diligence are just some of his many good qualities.
We can’t thank you enough Dirk for the outstanding service you delivered, we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to our friends and family & we’ll certainly be in contact soon.

We were very satisfied with our dealings with Dirk Jooste your sales representative. He was very helpful, courteous and very informative in explaining all details of the selling of our property. Nothing was too much trouble for him. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to others in relation to selling a property.
Mary & Trevor Jackson
Thank you so very much for your absolute professionalism and great work ethic. We really enjoyed our experience with Davey Real Estate because of you. Looking forward to seeing you soon for a glass of bubbly.

The best decision we made around selling our house was to appoint Dirk Jooste as our selling agent. We were delighted with all aspects of his service. Dirk’s commitment to leaving no stone unturned when it came to identifying prospective purchasers was clearly evident and most importantly kept us informed throughout the entire process.
Dirk was particularly sensitive when presenting offers, offering common sense advice and gently guiding us through the negotiating process, which for us at the time was a particularly emotional period. We are delighted with the selling price and the process in which it was achieved. We would certainly be calling on Dirk’s services down the track and be recommending him to family and friends when they consider selling.

We did our research and comparison amongst the various real estate companies. By and large the marketing packages were similar and competitive in price. What stood out for us was the prompt response after our initial enquiry for a free valuation and the quick turnaround to organise viewings, photography and home open.
The enthusiasm and professional attitude from our real estate agent Dirk Jooste was appreciated and a rarity. We enjoyed working Dirk thoroughly and his commitment to deliver realistic and tangible results were the key factor.
Thank you Dirk
From the first contact with Davey’s real estate I was impressed. From the first phone call Dirk professionalism shone. Dirk regularly kept in contact with me regarding the opens, potential buyers and the presentation of our house.
He also kept in contact with our tenant and even gave them a present at the start of the advertising period. During the selling period we were presented with 2 offers and through Dirk’s negotiation he exceeded our original asking price. I would highly recommendation using Davey’s Real Estate and especially Dirk Jooste.
We would like to extend a big ‘thank you’ for selling 99 Norman Street for us. We are grateful it was a very smooth process. Thanks to your professional service! We will not hesitate to recommend you to family & friends in the future.
