Appraisal Request


Dear Maryanne & Byron,

Just a Thank you for all your professionalism and detailed attention with selling my property for me. The whole precess has been so very easy from picking up the phone and asking you to sell. The expertise of your well chosen team – with commitment, enthusiasm and knowledge has kept me feeling so very positive about the sale. The outcome was terrific.

Thanks again, Nicole

In spite of the flat market, my property sold within 10 days of listing – at the asking price (in fact, slightly above asking).  The right buyer, at the right time of course, but also the right agent.  As a 60 year old former policeman, I have become a little jaded over time, however I will commend the agent who sold this property on my behalf – Byron Freeborn, from Maryanne Birch Real Estate.  (No, he’s no relation – in fact I’ve never actually met him.)  Byron’s professionalism, and willingness to go well beyond the norm, as I redeveloped the property from the other side of the country $14,000 worth of improvements, were instrumental in the successful marketing campaign, forged on my behalf.  Nothing was too much trouble, from organising painters and electricians, meeting contractors on site, to demonstrating the newly installed oven to the client, and producing a professional video ‘fly through’ of the apartment.  If you want a property sold in this area of Brisbane, I couldn’t recommend anyone more highly.

Thanks again K. O’Halloran

Dear Maryanne, Byron & Team,

Thank you for all your help with managing & selling our house at 8 Byron Street. We always felt that you were acting in our interests and we felt very comfortable with everyone we had dealings with.

Hi Maryanne,

Congratulation to you and your team on the sale of Mum’s property  a job very well done. I think you should be happy with the result especially when we look at what other agents were saying price wise.

Thanks again for your honesty and excellent service.

“Thank you so much for helping make our move from Brisbane to Melbourne so hassle free! In addition to the wonderful job you did in marketing and selling our property, you went above and beyond the call of duty by making sure our property looked great for open house times while we were overseas and helping organise to get the property ready for settlement after we had both relocated to Melbourne. It was hugely appreciated.

We chose Maryanne Birch because they are a local agency that understands our community, and were so enthusiastic about our property. We thoroughly recommend you to anyone in the Bulimba/Balmoral/Hawthorne area to provide a professional yet personalised service.”

I recall when I first contacted you about selling my Dad’s property at Balmoral. My Dad had recently passed away and I was confused. I had spoken to other real estate agents, but you were the only one who understood the significance of this sale to me.

You respected and showed interest in the history of my family home, even though the house itself was of no intrinsic value in the upcoming sale.
Your advice was always relevant, empathetic, and ensured that the best possible financial result was achieved. When you rang with your weekly updates, they were always interlaced with humour and above all, honesty.
On occasions I contacted your office and the staff were friendly and responsive to my enquiries.

Maryanne, I wish to sincerely thank you. I truly wish you and your business all the best for the future. Should anyone ever need assurance as to your integrity, dedication to your craft or need testament to your business acumen, please ask them to contact me.

Thanks mate!!!!!”

Hi Maryanne and Jane,

I would like to thank you both very much for being so helpful with the sale of our property and assisting us along the way to a successful outcome for our family.

It was a great relief for me to see how comfortable my sister Cathy was in dealing with your office and then being able to discuss the process and options to the rest of the beneficiaries.

Also I have been telling our friends how well our house was marketed.

“What great service! Thank-you!!!”J. King

Many thanks to you and the team at Maryanne Birch Real Estate for the excellent result you achieved in the sale of my aunt’s home in Morningside – within three weeks.

The house (an original Queenslander) had been in our family for nearly 100 years (3 generations) and had a lot to offer a potential buyer when the quality, unique features and character of the old style era were highlighted and promoted.

The motivation, diligence and attention to detail shown by the entire team in selecting the appraisal process, Marketing strategy, advertising and photo presentation all led to a very welcome outcome.

We were treated at all times in a courteous and attentive manner and the team’s communication skills in keeping us up to date and well informed were to be commended.

The sale was well managed and we were pleased with the price negotiated and settled by Charles.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Maryanne Birch Real Estate as a preferred agent:-

Highly professional in all levels of business acumen
Client relations were friendly and cooperative

I am writing to express my huge appreciation for the service provided by Maryanne Birch Real Estate in the recent sale of my property.

Prior to listing my property with Maryanne Birch Real Estate, my unit was on the market with another agency for 6 months. During these 6 months, the real estate agent at the time hardly ever contacted me and conditioned me into believing that the unit wasn’t selling because ‘the market is really bad at the moment’.

I decided to engage a local and recommended real estate agency Maryanne Birch. After my initial consultation with real estate agent Charles Whiston, I was immediately impressed. Charles was highly professional and demonstrated a very strong knowledge of the real estate market in the area. Maryanne Birch Real Estate agents work together as a team and take a proactive approach to selling property. Within the first week of listing my property with Maryanne Birch, a contract had already been put down on my unit.

I would highly recommend the services of Maryanne Birch to anyone looking to sell/buy/rent property. The team there are true professionals and are focused on providing the best results to their customers.”

“Dear All,

We are writing to express how happy we were with the service we received from your company, and Charles in particular. Maryanne Birch Real Estate was recommended to us and we engaged your services to assist with buying our first property.

As first time buyers, applying for a mortgage and navigating through the entire process seemed daunting, however with Charles’ guidance, patience and professional expertise we were immediately put at ease. He ensured we understood all that was involved and guided us every step of the way. He made himself available to answer all our questions and never once made us feel as though we were taking up his time. His knowledge and ability to explain in layman terms was greatly appreciated.

Charles’ professional and helpful manner should be commended, he made a difficult process seem easy and we would recommend his services and that of Maryanne Birch Real Estate without hesitation.

Kind Regards”

The market information, buyer feedback and helpful attitude of all of your Sales staff made the selling process stress-free and the end result was much better than I was hoping for! All the best for a great and successful year.
