We felt that the service provided by John Morrisby was exemplary. Great communication, nothing was ever “too much” to ask, handling of buyers was excellent. Then at the conclusion to squeeze every last dollar out of two buyers was the ultimate demonstration of skill.

Overall a positive experience with our agents. Readily contactable and reliable. Good advice and preparation for process and Auction day. Agents always punctual and polite. Experience underpinned by a solid result predicted accurately by our agents. John was a delight to deal with, was always courteous and punctual. John marketed our house in a sensible and sensitive manner and used his network of agents to attract existing buyers to our listing. The house sold for slightly more than John predicted. We highly recommend John to those looking for a dependable performer.

I would personally like to thank John Morrisby for outstanding service. Working with John was an absolute pleasure and he made the entire process as stress free as possible and provided sound, honest advice. I have already recommended using John to other people and would only use him again if/when selling – no one else. Thank you John!

I am writing to thank you so much for all your efforts with our real estate projects. You have made it possible for us to pursue our most ideal outcome for a home for our family. Firstly your tireless work to enable us to acquire, off market, a house that we were very keen on was outstanding. Without your persistence and negotiations I am sure this would not have happened. 

Secondly, as a result of your exceptional communication and negotiating skills we have been able to sell our current home under terms that really meet our family's needs. We could not recommend you more highly and could not imagine a better outcome.

On the whole, we were extremely happy with all dealings we had with Jellis Craig. We really followed John Morrisby from Marshall White to Jellis Craig, and were not sorry. He has been fantastic & we were very happy with all dealings with him. John has been professional, reliable and always very available and easy to deal with. 

The Jellis Craig team have also been fantastic, in particular Nadine Roberts. She has been so efficient, professional and always very friendly and helpful. We are very appreciative of all that has been done to aid in the sale of our home.

Just a note to thank you for the handling of our sale. Through the whole process, both Val and I were impressed by your confidence and professionalism. And I include both Damien and Talia in that also. 

The team was excellent and we want to extend our thanks to both of them also. As with nearly everything, a pleasing result is a function of the input effort. It was this effort which you said you would bring to the program. You did that in spades. 

We thought the briefings process was excellent for the hard and soft issues discussed, plus we had some opportunity to get to know each other a bit better and had some time for some laughs along the way. And although we couldn't hear much at all last Saturday, the feedback from friends in the crowd was overwhelmingly positive. I understand the process of 'crossing the road' to new pastures is a difficult one, in the decision firstly, and then the act itself. 

Be assured, that our experience with you and your new team has been a pleasant one, and one which we can recommend highly to others.

John Morrisby and Andrew Luke did a fantastic job of marketing and selling our home. They kept us regularly updated and maintained contact with us through out the whole process. They were honest and extremely hard working. They exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend using them again.
