Carole and I , John, contacted David Dean Real Estate to list our property for sale as they were local agents . The very next day the Principal Mark Rumsey phoned us and we arranged an appointment to discuss the sale. He was not only well presented and obliging but very knowledgeable of the area and movements in Sales and prices . His suggestions of the various directions in achieving the best result convinced us to engage Mark to look after the sale of our property. He was very professional in his approach and advice. It was only a matter of 2 weeks that he found a buyer and at the price we asked. This also demonstrates that Mark is precise, definite, positive in the way he conducts his business. He performed the whole transaction as if he were selling his own place. We could not fault him in any way. As we are very busy in conducting our own business he made himself available outside normal trading hours and happy to do so. Mark is very proud of his activity in real estate and his commitment is a result of his success. I always say “if you need something done to your satisfaction always ask a busy person”. We have no hesitation to recommend Mark and his company to look after anyone who wishes to buy or sell their property. We wish him and his company well. John & Carole Parrella

I initially met Mark a number of years ago when 1st looking at buying and the fact that he was still in the area was main reason I got in contact again. Once I did, he was very accommodating in finding the right way to market my property and it was very easy to make the decision to go with him and his team. Mark & Naomi were very professional & kept me informed throughout the entire process to achieve the sale of my property within the timeframes I needed. Highly recommended! Cheers Maddie

I was moving from NSW to QLD having never lived in Qld before. I had a very limited budget and viewed a property in Warner with Joel Clifford. He was matter of fact, friendly and did not put pressure on to make a quick decision. He answered my questions and assisted me in understanding the process which is different to what I am used to in NSW. Once a contract was entered into he always kept me informed and answered any questions that arose along the way. I appreciated his open manner and lack of sales pitch talk.

The long hard road to a sale, I was on that road with another agent i had a great unit up for sale but no takers, very frustrating when you live out of town and you’re depending on the agent to get the sale for you, well that was me when out of the blue Joel Clifford called and left a message saying he had noticed that my unit had been on the market for awhile and that he would be able to get a sale for me, i gave him a call back and he did indeed seem genuine and keen to list the property , he had sound local knowledge of the area my unit was in so i thought I’d give him a go, lucky i made that call back as other agents had also called me promising the earth and i had my doubts if and when i would get a sale, I’ve now sold my unit, from get go Joel did as he promised, he wrote a great ad, listed my property and then worked hard with potential buyers to get the sale for me , he kept me updated each inspection and at the end of each week, he never once tried to talk me into drastically reducing the price so that he could get a quick sale and the commission that came with it, he worked and with me and for me his advice was sound, he is a good listener and was also avaliable and if i missed him when i called he always returned my call no matter what day it was. To conclude my selling experience through David Deane Real Estate met all of my expectations, as for Joel he exceeded them right from day 1 he was there and he was true to his word a trait that is sometimes hard to find in this day and age , thank you so much Joel i sincerely appreciate the work that you put into selling my unit i have no hesitation in recommending you to other potential property sellers.

As a buyer I found Lee-Anne Burke very professional in her conduct. I told Lee-Anne I wanted to buy this house and she made it happen, what more could you ask for. She was always contactable via email and phone. She outlined the offer and buying process very clearly. She had good knowledge of the house and suburb. She made our purchase very smooth and easy even though the house was extremely popular with lots of offers and we were buying the property from afar using a family member in Brisbane. Thanks Lee-Anne.

The house sold within 4 days due to good marketing and well prepared open homes and we achieved over the price we expected. We would recommend Mark and his team to anyone wanting to sell their home.

We met Craig 9 years ago when he sold us our first home. When it came time to pack up and move on, Craig was our first call and it was the easiest and by far the best decision. The deal was done – signed, sealed and delivered the day the listing hit the internet. We got exactly the price we wanted for our house thanks to Craig’s knowledge of the market in the area. He is great to deal with and makes the process very easy and relaxed. We highly recommend selling with Craig!

Scott Deaves had a big mission to produce a sale on said property. Vendors wanting too big a price of property IE: age, interior décor, sales in immediate area, etc etc. We only viewed property with 2 half hour open reviews, and realised the solid build, interior, etc etc , as per good consultation with Scott was too good to pass up on. Property on market too long due to pricing, Scott had kept all parties informed of possible sale, and completed with all being very happy. Scott has a very calming, professional, positive, will do and can attitude. This is also a 2 for 1 review, as other family members, have bought property with Scott, at Guards St. just 8 weeks prior. They have the same feelings of Scott with their purchase with him. Many Thanks THE GIFFIN FAMILY.

My time spent with Craig was brief but only because he had the right property, the right attitude and the knowledge to read what people need and assist us in any way possible. We purchased the day we met Craig as everything fell into place with our sale happening just 24hrs previous. The property was everything we were looking for and more. Craig’s patience was a blessing as i had to revisit the property several times after purchasing to check items and measurements. Never was it a problem for him to meet me for these inspections and i gratefully appreciate all his help. He showed professionalism beyond what i have seen in a retail market place for a long time and that was my business for 35 years. i strongly recommend Craig for future sales and purchases in the real estate market. You’ll find no better. Regards Terry Chittick

Having a comprehensive experience buying from Mark in the past I had no hesitation returning to Mark when it came time to sell. Mark provided an extensive overview of what to expect and how to proceed in the sale. In an unforgiving market Mark pursued the best possible value for my home. Working in conjunction with his assistant Naomi in facilitating the sale, all my questions were quickly answered and all conditions were handled flawlessly. His assessments were honest and forthright enabling decisions to be made with clarity. I’d like to thank Mark and his team for their hard conscientious work in the sale of my home.

Choosing the right Agent to sell your home is a big and difficult decision. I had talked to 4 other Agents before I met Lee-Ann. I liked Lee-Ann from the moment I opened my door to her. The way she spoke to me, the information she had collated for me, the way she looked and reviewed my home, as I showed Lee-Ann around my house she was selling the house to me. Lee-Ann was on the job straight way, phoning clients she thought would be interested, advertising, talking to her team in the office. I really like the way David Deane works as a team supporting each other. Lee-Ann’s energy and focus was amazing, moving house is a draining time, Lee-Ann took so much pressure off me it was wonderful. She listens, she feels, she cares, I with no doubt what so ever chose the correct person to sell my house. Lee-Ann sold my house in 3 days for a price I was very happy with. Lee-Ann knows Real Estate, she can communicate and she can definitely sell, Lee-Ann’s middle name should be Sell. I have already referred Lee-Ann on to a friend and she has already sold their house for a good price. I will continue to recommend Lee-Ann to family and friends. You would be making the wrong choice in Agent, if you didn’t chose Lee-Ann Burke!

I have recently dealt with quite a few agents and did not like any of them due to their smug attitudes and tendency to think I will believe anything. Mark however was very upfront and easy to negotiate with. We are very happy with our new family home.

I have rented my property through David Deane for many years, and they have always been quick and responsive, and provided great property management. So of course, when it came to selling they were the obvious choice. I live overseas, so clear communication by email is a big requirement for me, and Lee-Ann certainly was fantastic in that regard. The whole process was fast, efficient, and I am very happy with both the outcome and the process. 🙂
