We were extremely impressed with the quality of the service provided by Jellis Craig (and Adriana in particular) in selling our property at 11 Hopetoun Street. Adriana kept us regularly informed about how the sale was going and personally ensured that the rented property was presentable when it came to inspection time. This included even washing the tenant’s dishes on occasion!

Most importantly, Jellis Craig achieved a truly exceptional price for our property, which was well above what we ever expected. I would definitely recommend Adriana and the team at Jellis Craig without hesitation. I am happy to be contacted to discuss my experience if that helps.

It’s easy to get a real estate agent to sell your house..  There are lots in the phone book and they will all come to your house well dressed and say lots of good things about themselves.  The hard part is ensuring you get a good one.  John Morello and Kieran Moloney are good ones. 

As someone who has worked in the industry I know the many things they have to contend with, from demanding vendors who want too much, to cagey buyers giving  nothing away.  Experience working for buyers and sellers with and  opposed to lots of agents has taught me far more pay lip service than doing the things they say they will.  Far fewer perform outstandingly in all areas that matter.  John and Kieran do.

Results are most important and consistently good ones even when the wider market is sluggish are a hallmark of the best agents.  The exceptional results achieved in my street really captured my attention and prompted me to call John in.  His firm may not have the largest market share in the area and may not offer the cheapest fees but they do provide premium results.  Too many vendors focus on the wrong things and have a commensurate experience.

With my background agents could expect their mettle to be thoroughly tested and in the past I have found some falling back on old tactics , unfulfilled promises and to be wanting in the end.  From the outset John, Kieran and the team set high, but realistic goals and gave comprehensive, accurate information.  Their recommendations for staging and assistance with presentation including storage were welcome, proving significantly better than alternatives.

The campaign was conducted as smoothly and effectively as any I have seen.  Kieran ran the open for inspections like a Swiss watch providing thorough and accurate feedback.  Often agents use this as a means to work on modifying a vendor’s expectations, but these guys were always  focused on follow up with a view to achieving the desired outcome for me.   They know their buyers and how to encourage them along.

In the street theatre of auctioneers John is among the best practitioners.  He engages the audience with the story of the house and the area in which it sits  almost invariably prompting bids from interested parties and with subtlety patiently coaxes them out when momentum flags.

If you want to sell your home for a great price and enjoy what is  usually a stressful experience choose John Morello and Kieran Moloney to do it for you.

Thank you John for helping us achieve excellent results with the sale of both our family home and investment property. Superior sales expertise, market knowledge and a significant client database were the critical reasons we selected Jellis Craig Kensington versus your competitors……. and you delivered in bucket loads.

At all times, you gave us very high confidence that the entire sales process was being expertly managed from property presentation to purchaser negotiations. 

My wife and I have no hesitation in highly recommending you both to my closest friends and family. We look forward to capitalising on your expertise again in the very near future

Dear John, and Georgie,

Words cannot explain how thankful both Mary and l are for not only providing us the upmost professional service but also a record price for the area.
We have previously sold properties prior with other agents but don’t even come close to the personal and professional service Jellis Craig have provided us. From day 1 we knew we definitely made the right decision in choosing you as an agent to sell our home.

From the start of the campaign to the very end, we were kept informed on regular occasions on a weekly basis if not daily. You all made us feel very comfortable during the whole process. 

Thank you very much for the photo album and gift you have provided us post auction. 

We have highly recommended you to friends and family and will have no hesitation in choosing you again and in the future. Well done. Great job.

We recently had Georgie & John from Jellis Craig assist us in selling our house in Kensington. Over the course of working with them in selling the property, it has been stress free, as they took care of everything for us.

We were constantly kept in the loop of what was happening at all times. Georgie & John worked so hard on the campaign. We found them to be accommodating, informative and positive, and were very professional and experienced. This made us feel at ease all the time and gave us a sense of security in allowing them to sell our property. We would have no doubt in using them again in the future.

We write to thank you and Kieran so much for your  efforts in the sale of our home. We were so very pleased with the end result.

From our first meeting, we were struck by your  professionalism and easy rapport, definitely a stand out from others. We were  on the same page from day one, and the timeline that was provided at the  initial meeting was a fantastic tool to keep us informed at each step of the  campaign.

Auction day, while nerve wracking, you and your  team were cool and calm - which was fine, as we had the nerves covered!  Needless to say, we were very pleased with the successful sale and would have  no hesitation in recommending you and your team at Jellis Craig to others  thinking of selling.

We would like to sincerely thank you for the positive and  professional manner in which Jellis Craig handled the sale of our property in  Moonee Ponds. We were very impressed with the professionalism shown by your staff. Kieran and Georgie worked tirelessly and kept us well informed throughout the campaign. The schedule was kept to and all the openings were carried out punctually and with enthusiasm. Feedback was always prompt and followed through. The advertising campaign was very successful due to your advice with the styling. We also feel that the media coverage and photos contributed to the enhancement of the property. 

On the day of the auction we were put at ease and made to feel confident that all would go well. The auction was conducted professionally and we thank you John for persevering in getting us the best price. John, we thank you and your staff for your efforts in achieving an exciting and excellent result, making the sale of our property a stress free and positive experience. We would highly recommend Jellis Craig to our family and friends and look forward to working with you again

I recently had to go through the stressful time of  selling a property. John Morello and his team at Jellis Craig made it anything  but stressful. Both John and Kieran made everything a breeze and went the extra  mile without question.

When it came to auction day I was at ease to  know I had the best auctioneer in the business. I could not have hoped for a  better outcome and it all comes down to the team at Jellis Craig. Well  done.
