We met with agents from the usual large companies before having the good fortune to hear about Emphasis Real Estate. Mike and Catherine were the best choice we could have made. Knowledgeable and experienced and working as independent agents where they set a flat fee for their services. This was a big saving on what we would have paid an agent working for a franchise where a chunk of the fee would be taken by the franchise company. Mike and Catherine gave us a good service, with multiple offers coming in after their first open home. Our house sold in a straightforward manner. There is no need for uncertainty in signing up with them as independent agents. We are grateful to have found such honest and pleasant individuals who knew the business, coped with our wobbles here and there and kept in touch with us all the way through to achieving a good outcome. We got a very good price for our house and a personalized service. We recommend them to anybody considering real estate transactions.
