Michelle was the absolute dream when it came to selling our first property. We never could have imagined that someone could make the process so easy and smooth. Her knowledge of the market was impeccable and she explained every detail to us throughout each step of the process. Michelle was always on call and gave us the impression that she actually never stops working. Not only did she make the process so easy, she also managed to get us the sale we wanted. Michelle went above and beyond to secure us a deal that exceeded our expectations. We could not recommend Michelle any more if you are after a friendly, efficient boss for a saleswoman. Thanks so much to Michelle and her dream team!!

You couldn't wish for better service. everything was handled so professionally, things explained in easy to understand terms and nothing was too much trouble. I just wish I had signed with them originally, and not wasted 5 months with another agent. my property was sold within 24 hours of being listed with OBriens.

Outstanding! Beyond Compare!We met Symone at an open house, we were in a hurry and she was kind enough to let us in early. As we were in a hurry we breezed through the inspection and advised that we wouldn't be interested ( we later bought the same house). Symone called me later that week to ask what we were looking for, we gave her our specs and she then proceeded to organise private inspections of homes within our budget and requirements. Symone constantly stayed in contact and even though we had sold our house through another agent, she gave us information and suggestions that our own real estate agent hadn't bothered to give. Symone completely exceeded our expectations, she went above and beyond and we would HIGHLY recommend Symone to anyone who is buying or selling a house. Thank you Symone!

Thank you to Michelle and Jae for their knowledge and expertise in the property market. As first home buyers the process seemed very confusing and daunting but thanks to the team the experience was much smoother than we thought it could be. Communication was really good and helping they happily helped us with each step. The contract and going through that was made simple with the help of the team. The process happened so much more quick than we would have thought which we are very happy with. They were there at every step and every question we heard back promptly with an answer. Very honest and friendly for the whole process. Would recommend to anyone. Thank you Michelle and Jae!

Great agent, highly recommendAfter meeting Michelle for the first time we knew we had picked the right agent for us.Michelle is a ball of positive energy, she shows up on time and does what she says she is going to do, no fuss.When presenting offers to us, we never felt pressured to accept, Michelle would give us the facts and tell us we have to be happy with what we decide, which we are!Michelle works with a team of agents at OBrien, they communicate well between themselves so they are all across what is happening with your property and can answer your questions when needed. Selling your home can be scary and stressful, essentially you're putting your life into someone else's hands, you need to be able to trust your agent to do right by you, and we are so happy we were able to trust Michelle and her team to get the best price for our home. We are very happy with our experience and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Michelle to everyone looking to sell their property.

Symone was extremely helpful during the process and was very flexible with all the arrangements. It took a bit longer than expected to get things done on my end, if it wasn't for Symone, the deal could've gone off. The abundance knowledge of the process and the guidance given was really impressive. Highly recommended.

Jay who organised for us to put the sold sign on the house after hours and last, but definately not least, Michelle who responded quickly to our requests and negotiations with the client and was so helpful and friendly during the negotiations.

We met with Michelle on a Friday evening. Michelle and her team committed to preparing the property for sale, listed and open for inspection a week later on the Saturday. This included some maintenance to gardens and decking, styled with furniture, engaging a conveyancer and development of Section 32 all ready for the Saturday. I was impressed to see that this did happen.Michelle also kept us informed and up to date at every stage of the process. We never had to chase up information and we were never left wondering what’s going on. Michelle and her team do what they say they will do

Symone was always so professional, it could not be faulted, She always made me feel special and that my house was the only one on her list to sell. I was always kept up to date on who and how many groups had inquired, seen and been through my home. Symones marketing knowledge is exceptional. She was always professional, friendly, sincere and her honesty was exceptional (which is very important to me). She knew my area so well and is up to date on all things that was needed to sell my house.

Professional & RelatableMichelle completed the sale of our house with ease. She made us feel totally confident that she could get us the best possible outcome from the moment we met her and she absolutely delivered. We got 20k more than what other agents were telling us we could get. Her knowledge of the area, her negotiation skills, her constant communication and relatability were all excellent.At the end of the sale both us and the buyers were extremely happy. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else. Michelle and her team are phenomenal.
