HI Team Barker,

Thanks very much for your competent service and expert advice in assisting us to sell our small rural block recently.Involving professional team certainly helps. Warrens’ wealth of experience in rural real estate matters and Beverleys’ efficient support and eye for detail. We and our legal support, were kept up to date at every point of the selling procedure allaying fears and explaining procedure . We very much commend their efforts in securing a suitable buyer with a minimum of fuss, and the resulting happy outcome for both buyer and seller. I would consider Team Barker to be my first option when buying or selling real estate in the future.

“Hi Vicki,

We hope this email finds you well and busy. Both Tim and I would just like to say a very big thank you for all your hard effort in selling our house. We know that it was a bit of a stress for you as it was a big stress for us. You were and are a wonderful friendly person and we appreciate your honesty, kindness and patience. Selling a house after you have moved away from it can be a huge burden both mentally and financially so we are thankful that you did all you could to help us.
We wish you well for your future in the real estate business,
Thank you again”

“Good Morning Vicki,

I am sorry I have taken so long to send you this email, I have been working feverously on Warren’s Oak Street property.

Arthur and I would like to sincerely thank you for taking the time to spend with us the other Saturday.
The information that you were able to give us was invaluable and has had an adverse effect on our lives.
We just were blown away with Chinchilla as a town and as a result we are now looking to move to the area ourselves.
As I mentioned we are very interested in Warren’s property but we have also been watching the new properties on your newsletter.

We will be in Chinchilla again week-end of the 10th March, we would hope to catch up with you again.
Pam, we would personally like to let you know that your staff have gone above and beyond to help us as investors and nothing was too much trouble, you have a great team.

We have passed on our knowledge of the area and have given your business name to our numerous investor contacts.
Thank you both again for your kind assistance, we are sincerely looking forward to doing business in the very near future.”

Debbie and Arthur Tonkin

“I can not thank you enough for the professionalism, assistance and support I received throughout the process of selling my property.

As you are aware I had faced some difficulties when dealing with other real estates, but upon Surat Basin Real estate taking on my property I felt at ease immediately and was able to sleep well knowing I was being looked after.

I felt that the staff were friendly, kind, honest, helpful and were able to give me feedback on any questions or concern that I had.

I am more than happy for you to use this as a testimonial for your great work and will would gladly recommend you to everyone I know.“

“I rang vicki on a saturday just as she must have been going home, but without hesitation she said she would arrange to show me the property. She was extremely friendly & answered my queries. Upon purchase nothing has been to much trouble. She has volunteered to help in ways above & beyond expectations. Because of her service I decided to use Surat Basin as my managing agent. I have not been disappointed with the services and help I have received. I would recommend Vicki to anyone wishing to purchase in the area.”

“Our family has several investments in Chinchilla and we have always found Surat Basin Homes and Surat Basin Real Estate to be reliable people to deal with. When circumstances changed mid 2012 we sold 5 Gower street so we could purchase a house in Adelaide. Vicki handled the sale and achieved a satisfactory result settlement went smoothly. Thanks Vicki”
