"Brough & Taylor Sale of Property"

I recently sold a property with Tim Simpson and Gino Morvillo from Brough & Taylor Real Estate.

From the beginning the process was very easy, and the team at Brough were very responsive to any of my requests to help get the property prepared for listing, as well as dealing with any remaining tenancy issues.

Throughout the campaign when there was an open home, Tim and Gino were punctual, and also ensured they waited around long enough for prospective buyers, not just rushing off to the next open home.

In the end, we got a price that exceeded our expectations at auction, with a hot auction with plenty of bidders.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tim and Gino for future sales. With their years of experience, it certainly added value to the

"I could not have wished for more"

It has been quite a rewarding experience to have had the benefit of the expert work and guidance of both you Tim and your team in carrying this sale through to a most successful conclusion. I could not have wished for more, in a selling agent.

- Mr Geoffrey B. Simmons

"The auction was a great success"

Our sincere thanks to you and the team at Brough Real Estate for doing such a superb job.

Being interstate we were completely at the mercy of a distant market.

Your weekly updates about the auctions advertising progress was both professional and reassuring that we'd made the right decision in choosing your agency.

The auction was a great success and the sale price being more than 10% above the independent valuation we had earlier obtained on the property further reconfirmed we'd made the right call in going with Brough Real Estate. Thank you.

"Totally satisfied with the professionalism and thoroughness"

From very early September to the middle of October this year, I have had the good fortune to be associated with Mr Timothy Simpson and just prior to the Auction of my property, with Gino Morvillo of Brough Real Estate, Ashfield.

In every respect I have been totally satisfied with the professionalism and thoroughness of the service and support that I have been provided, leading to a most satisfactory conclusion. Not only did I experience expert and honest advice throughout the process, but also a concern and empathy for me personally in selling my home of 27 years.

I can only recommend the services of Mr Tim Simpson most highly. I would also like to add that the administrative team in the office in Hercules St was, on each occasion I had contact, more than helpful, courteous and obliging.

"He was able to conclude the sale within a week of the open house"

We were very impressed with Tim Simpson's professional attitude to the sale of our property. He was well acquainted with our apartment block and with the area, and was able to help secure a sale price which was well above our expectations. He managed the open house very acceptably and was prompt in following up those who expressed genuine interest. As a result he was able to conclude the sale within a week of the open house and two weeks after our property had listed. We would have no hesitation in recommending Brough Real Estate and Tim Simpson to those we know.

"Brough and Taylor Real Estate made it so easy"

I was told by everyone that selling the family home would be one of the most stressful and difficult things I will ever do. Tim and his team at Brough and Taylor Real Estate made it so easy.

Their comprehensive sales package was affordable and marketed the property to the standard I wanted. I was presented with weekly updates reports on how the campaign was tracking and how the market was responding. I received prompt reasons to any questions I had. Tim, Gino and the team know the area and the market well. I was very happy with the result on Auction Day. I recommend them to anyone wishing to sell

A quick note to say thank you to you and your team for the terrific auction result at Alt St last Saturday. Mum, Dad and I were all thrilled with the result.

"Expectations were most definably exceeded!"

The recent rains exposed an electrical fault in the cable attached to the wall outside our front windows. From time to time it would flare with what sounded like a small explosion. We called the Energy Australia Emergency assistance line. They came and let us know that to fix the problem they would need access to the shop below us, in the meantime they would need to cut the power. It was late Saturday afternoon, the shop was closed and we were faced with a weekend or more without power. The Energy Australia guys agreed to wait around to see if we could find a number for the owner of the shop. I called Tim Simpson. He didn't have the number on him, but offered to drive into the office to find it. So while my family ate dinner in the dark, and I waited out of the rain in front of the shop, Tim drove into his office, found the phone number, rang the owner from the shop and asked him to drive in and open it. The story ended well, our power was reconnected and expectations were most definably exceeded!

On 9th July, 2011 a unit I owned at 7/8 Tintern Road Ashfield was sold at Auction through Brough Real Estate.

"Marketing really paid off"

I am writing to express my pleasure in the professional way in which your real estate agency sold my property.

Your expertise in focusing on the internet, pamphlet drops and open house method proved to be the best way to promote my home without spending unnecessary amounts of money in newspaper advertising. This type of marketing really paid off in my case and I am glad the property sold at Auction.

I was particularly happy and relaxed with Tim Simpson who showed professionalism in the way he undertakes his work. He successfully managed to keep everyone happy, relaxed and informed.

I wish to say thank you for our 10 year association regarding the leasing of the property and hope you have a successful future.
