What people say about Blue Chip Real Estate

Recommended Agent - 03 Apr 2018

Recommended Agent - 03 Apr 2018

By Chris in Burswood

Barbara is an extremely competent sales agent. I was originally not in a position to continue with an offer on the property but Barbara negotiated extensions of time to enable the purchase (dependent on sale of another property). In the end, the purchase went through smoothly thanks to the efforts of Barbara. If I am to sell the property in the future I would engage Barbara and feel confident of a fair result.

Excellent Agent - 12 Mar 2018

We have found Barbara really good to work with and asked her to sell 2 properties of ours in the past. Barbara is very accommodating and easy to deal with and we would certainly recommend to anyone interested in selling their property especially in the local area of Burswood. Barbara lives locally and as such is well known. We believe this also has contributed to her contacts and keeping up to date with what's happening in the local area. Highly recommended. Thanks Barbara, kind regards Denise & Claire

You really went above and beyond with your personal help to my brother, especially after his accident.

Would certainly recommend you to anyone, all the best for the future.

The Facilitator

The Facilitator

28 February 2017

It is now February 2017 and we bought our property via Barbara Holmes in December 2016. At the time it would have been easy to write a positive review due to the excitement of a new property purchase. I have held of until now to write this review because with time to reflect upon the events leading up to the purchase I believe a better assessment of the real issues can be written. Having had dealings with over 15 Real Estate agents over the years, sometimes I was the seller other times the buyer, I believe I am able to make a realistic and unbiased assessment of how good or bad an agent is. Without a doubt, Barbara Homes is not only in the good section, she leads it. Barbara knows her product and better still she relates very well to people. While Barbara was engaged by the seller, she saw herself as the facilitator of a deal and while always acting professionally and maintaining confidences she made time to understand my situation and was more than accommodating with her time via inspections or providing information to me to enable me to arrive at a decision. Unlike other agents I believe that Barbara, while working for her seller, knew that there is no ‘real’ sale without a satisfied buyer and while she represented her seller strongly and fairly she also ensured that I was given every opportunity to make an informed decision. In a way she became a trusted friend and that trust resulted in a mutually beneficial sale. Barbara wasn’t just about the sale though, they come and go. Barbara was about the relationship, which is the basis of good business practice – the forerunner to the next sale. Smart, capable, hardworking, ethical and friendly – that’s Barbara Holmes. She is recommended.

An agent that can get the job done

By T & B Cooper

To whom it may concern,

After having our home on the market with another agent for over 4 months we decided to give Jim Edwards a go at selling our home.
We had virtually given up hope of selling our home with the previous agent as he said it was a tough market.

But were we surprised after 10 days when Jim rang us with news of a great offer.

We have now settled and sold our home & we can highly recommend Jim Edwards to anyone who wants an agent that can get the job done.

We will definitely use Jim if ever we or our family are buying or selling.

Thank You

Vibrant and enthusiastic

By C Allen

To Whom It May Concern,

I have known Leanne Edwards for three years, firstly as the licensee and property manager at FPD Savills and then as Director/licensee and property manager at WA Prestige Properties.

Leanne’s vibrant and enthusiastic nature was catchy. She had the ability to get the best out of the people around her by simply being present.

Her dedication and commitment to her clients was obvious, as she treated each and every individual property under her care as she would her own.

In my 18 years in the real estate industry, I can easily say I have not had the pleasure of working alongside a property manager who I felt I could feel completely comfortable in caring for my clients. Leanne is the exception.

I have no hesitation in recommending Leanne to anyone seeking a loyal, competent, diligent and trustworthy manager for their property. Her professional approach and integrity is well respected within the industry, and her services are regularly sought by The Real Estate Institute of W.A. as a lecturer and an excellent example to new and upcoming property managers in the Real Estate industry. This is an acknowledgement in itself of the industries recognition of her fine standing commitment to those around her.

Extremely professional, tenacious and positive

By R Backhouse, 15 May 2012

We listed our luxury apartment in Mandurah with Barbara right in the middle of the Global Financial Crisis. This was an extremely tough time in the Real Estate market, especially down at Mandurah.

Barbara was extremely professional, tenacious and positive in dealing both with us and the prospective buyers. She continually introduced fresh and innovate ways to keep our listing ‘fresh’ and kept us informed every step of the way. She never lost focus on her goal – to sell our apartment at the best possible price – from the moment we listed our property until the sale was completed.

Barbara is a beautiful lady as well as a true professional and I have no hesitation in recommending her to handle the sale of any property.

Many thanks

By I Thomas, 23 April 2012

I would like to thank you and earlier, Leanne for the professional way in which you have handled the property over the years and in particular the excellent state in which I found it today, on departure of the previous tenants. It is a shame that all tenants aren’t as good as they have been.

Again many thanks, and I will recommend Blue Chip to any of my acquaintances.
