We selected Mark at David Deane RE because of his knowledge, expertise and understanding of the real estate market for our area. Mark has always been upfront and honest with us as clients, which we certainly appreciated. Mark and Naomi Otto both operate with honesty, integrity and always made the time to discuss details pertinent to the sale of our property. As we live interstate, Mark and Naomi assisted us by organising tradespeople to prepare the property for the best condition for sale. We found the entire process of dealing with Mark, Naomi and the DDRE team to be very professional, caring and provided us with a stress-free process through to the settlement of our property.

When purchasing my property, I found Lee-Ann to be a professional and kind agent. She really worked hard to get the best for the seller and myself. She even brought over some succulent plants for my planter boxes. I highly recommend Lee-Ann as an agent.

The selling of my house was a pleasant and positive experience from the first meeting with my agent Joel Clifford from David Deane Real Estate until well after settlement. Joel gave me very good advice on the pricing and marketing of my house to achieve the best results. He had a network of potential clients interested in buying a house in my area. This resulted in my house being sold within one day of going on the market at a record price for a house in Petrie. Joel has excellent communication skills and kept the Buyer and myself informed on what was happening throughout the selling process. Joel is an exceptional real estate agent who stands out from the rest and goes the extra distance to get the best results for clients. I recommend Joel to anyone who wants to sell their house and get the best results.

If you’re looking for a local agent and you want the best price for your property there is no better option than Mark Rumsey and Naomi Otto. They work hard and smart. They know what they’re doing and will do everything to achieve the best possible result for your property. Whilst other local agents were trying to convince me of the reasons why my property would not achieve a premium result, Mark articulated exactly why it would and set about finding the buyer who would appreciate the property for what it had to offer. I am happy to highly recommend Mark and Naomi.

We have now used Mark and his team to sell three homes for our family in the last two years. On each occasion we have had a great experience with them.

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
