“Selling a family home can be stressful to say the least. Peter made the experience an enjoyable one for us.”

As it was time to downsize, we decided to partner with Peter Brentnall to sell our home. Peter came to our home to do an appraisal and shortly after, within a week, we all sat down for a chat. It became very obvious to us that Peter had good communication skills and came across as a down to earth,honest person. We felt comfortable with him immediately and have not regretted our decision at any point during the process of selling our home.
From start to finish Peter stayed in contact with us almost daily. He provided us with updates regularly and guided us through the whole process professionally. From the time we signed a contract for Peter to sell our house his organising of the photos, building report, brochures, letterbox drop etc was completed in a timely manner and to a very high standard.
We had only two open houses before an offer was made. Peter managed to get us more than we expected and a very satisfactory settlement date. He liaised with us and the buyer easily, honestly and quickly so that the positive outcome of selling our house was achieved!
We would not hesitate in recommending Peter to anyone wanting to sell their property. Selling a family home, as most people would agree, can be stressful to say the least: Peter made the experience an enjoyable one for us.

“MY EXPERIENCE WITH EDGE GAVE ME AN UNDERSTANDING OF, AND A RESPECT FOR, THE REAL SKILLS OF PROFESSIONALS LIKE STEVE THOMAS. SO IF YOU ARE THINKING OF DOING IT YOURSELF, THINK AGAIN!”

After many years in Canberra I was about to move interstate and therefore I had to sell my house. Having sold and bought a few houses over the years, I thought that I could save a bundle of money and sell the house myself. Sure the market was slow but my house was well presented, and had great views, so how difficult could it be?

After a bit of market research, I decided on a price, took a series of photos for the internet, and arranged for the compulsory inspection reports. After the house inspection, I was chatting to the inspector and told him I was to sell the home privately. He suggested I think carefully about that. He agreed with me that some real estate agents would be more interested in their own welfare than mine, but if I could find the right one, they could save me more than their fee and take away the hassle of a sale. On my request, he gave me a list of three or four agents to look at.

I was still skeptical but decided to go with Edge Real Estate, an agency I had never heard of, perhaps because they were smaller than the usual national companies that spring to mind. The principal for this agency is Steve Thomas and I met him the very next day.

I was immediately impressed with Steve's no nonsense, hype-free approach and his personable nature. He explained the 'how and what' of marketing my house, including the various options. He arranged a professional photo shoot including video, and within a week had produced an impressive brochure and put the house on to the market. We discussed details such as the best time of day to display the house, and he listened to, and accommodated any concerns I had.

After the first inspection, we had some interested parties and tentative offers. Steve suggested how we might increase market interest. I agreed with his ideas and to cut an involved story short, a few weeks later the house was sold at a higher price than I had originally estimated, and with very little hassle. The fee he charged was very reasonable and just as the house inspector advised, the increased sale price more than covered his fee. Although I am not sure that this would always be the case, I can highly recommend Steve for a hassle and anxiety free sale.

My experience with Edge Real Estate also gave me an understanding of, and a respect for, the real skills of professionals like Steve Thomas. So if you are thinking of doing it yourself, think again!

“ENTHUSIASTIC & PRO ACTIVE”

Down-sizing can be daunting. Faced with having to do this, I chose Steve Thomas as my real estate agent and I found his suggestions very helpful. Following his ideas on how to "de-clutter" and arrange the furniture improved the look of my place and no doubt helped to sell it.

There were quite a few units in the area where I lived that had been on sale for months and as I had already paid a deposit on my new unit it was an anxious time.

Steve persuaded me to use video advertising and it was just as well I followed his advice because it made it possible for several interested parties who were overseas to view the property and one of them bought it within weeks of seeing.

I found Steve to be enthusiastic and pro-active in his efforts to sell my unit and thanks to him I'm now happily settled in my new place.

“SETTLEMENT WAS COMPLETED 6 WEEKS AFTER THE PROPERTY WENT ON THE MARKET & AT THE PRICE WE WANTED WAS BEYOND ALL EXPECTATIONS.”

As executor of my mother's estate, on behalf of the family, I would like to express my appreciation for your efforts in the sale of her home. Your enthusiasm and positive approach was a breath of fresh air at a difficult time. The fact that settlement was completed 6 weeks after the property went on the market and at the price we wanted was beyond all expectations. I was kept informed of progress at all times. I would recommend you to anyone considering selling a property. It was a pleasure doing business with you.

“STEVE WAS ALWAYS CHEERFUL, FRIENDLY, PROFESSIONAL AND MOST IMPORTANTLY HONEST WITH US.”

Steve Thomas and Edge Real Estate provide a refreshing change to Canberra Real Estate, it is exciting to see such an enthusiastic businessman, with an innovative approach selling houses. We have bought and sold many properties over the years and can honestly say we have never received the level of service Edge Real Estate gave us, they were simply amazing. Steve and his team made selling our home at Doyle Terrace Chapman the easiest experience it could possibly have been, dare we say it was almost fun!

Steve was always cheerful, friendly, professional and most importantly honest with us. He did what could only be described as a miraculous job in selling our house. Steve managed to get from date of listing to exchange of contracts in just 8 days, and also achieved a fantastic price for the property. Steve did far more than we expected from a real estate agent, and having chosen to list with Edge over some other bigger well known agencies in Canberra we can honestly say we never looked back, we are just so pleased with our decision. Steve always kept us informed of potential buyer interest and feedback. We were particularly impressed with his willingness to help us right throughout the process, from listing and beyond.

Steve's tireless work ethic and his optimism were very impressive. His contagious enthusiasm managed to keep us all laughing and happy even when we had to clean the whole house to open for the 5th time in 6 days! And it could not have been more worth it. Steve is an honest, genuine person and you could not ask for a better representative to sell your property.

We would like to say that all staff were so professional, pleasant and an absolute pleasure to deal with. We thank Dale for standing by our pool with a smile on his face, in extreme temperatures wearing a suit and looking very professional, he must have been cooking! We would have no hesitation in recommending Steve and Edge Real Estate to act as your agent if you are thinking of selling. Steve's straightforward approach, industry knowledge and willingness to do whatever it takes to assist in selling your property, make the process as pleasant and painless as possible. Thank you to Steve and his team for all your hard work and best wishes for the future of Edge Real Estate, we think it is definitely the best Real Estate Agency in Canberra!

“IT IS SUCH A JOY TO WORK WITH SOMEONE WHO DOES THE FOLLOWING UP AND WHO MAKES SURE THINGS HAPPEN WHEN THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO.”

We have no doubt that choosing Steve Thomas from Edge Real Estate was one of the smartest decisions we made about selling our house. On critical things like candour, the accuracy of the appraisal, ability to generate interest in the property and ability to sell the property quickly he exceeded our expectations. In addition his understanding of the market and sales process was top notch. On top of all of this, thanks to his lower overheads, he charged a very reasonable commission, which was better value than the big names in town.

But the most enjoyable part of having Steve as our agent was his customer service: It is such a joy to work with someone who does the following up and who makes sure things happen when they are supposed to. It was like we had our very own project manager to help us sell the property. Not only would we consider recommending Steve to friends and family — we already have.

“EDGE MARKETING WAS CLEARLY AHEAD OF ALL OTHER AGENTS WE CONSIDERED”

Steve was recommended to us because of his high success rate selling homes quickly and for the best possible price. We were not disappointed as he achieved exactly that for us too. His marketing was clearly ahead of all other agents we considered and we were very impressed by his reliability and willingness to work with us to achieve the best possible outcome. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone considering selling their home.

“STEVEN THOMAS IS ONE OF THOSE RARE PEOPLE WHO REALLY IMPRESSES.”

Steven Thomas is one of those rare people who really impresses. I have dealt with many agents over the years and Stephen Thomas stands out as a man of integrity and passion for his work. I first met Steven when he was exhibiting the house my partner and I recently purchased.

We were very impressed with his service to us as buyers - no request was too much trouble and he always kept us informed. For these reasons I invited him to conduct an appraisal of my home. Steven's enthusiasm, confidence and knowledge of the market convinced me that he was the right choice to list with. Other agents we spoke to were down-beat and lacked that creative spark which we felt the property needed.

Steven provided exceptional service throughout the process including prompt feedback post exhibitions. The house sold within a matter of weeks and with minimal press coverage at a price higher than other agents appraised it for! I am happy to recommend Steven Thomas as an agent who has high professional standards, a sound knowledge of the market and a creative spark with an unmatched level of enthusiasm.

“SPOT ON ADVICE.”

When I spoke with Steve I told him we needed to sell fast. My house was too big and no longer suited the lives of me and my two sons living with me. Although Edge Real Estate is a new name, I soon felt my property was in good hands.

A new business bringing new and fresh ideas into the sales process. Steve was spot on in his advice about the most effective and achievable improvements to the house to achieve a fast sale at a good price. The reasonable commission and effective marketing strategies made for a quick and economical sale of the house.

The service is personal and highly professional. Edge Real estate is a name I can trust. Steve saved me money and made the process of selling very low-stress. I would recommend Edge Real estate to anyone looking for an effective and efficient real estate agent.

“IT WAS REFRESHING TO DEAL WITH AN AGENT WITH YOUR PROFESSIONALISM”

Shan, I just wanted to take the time to thank you for your assistance with selling my investment property in Belconnen.
Throughout the process I was very impressed with your level of communication and support and given the current climate with units in Belconnen I was happy with the sale price that you achieved
I was also happy with the reasonable amount that you charge me for listing and selling my property through Edge Group.
Being a mortgage broker here in Canberra I liaise with many real estate agents and it was refreshing to deal with an agent with your professionalism.
Thanks again and I’d be happy to recommend you to my own customers who are looking to sell or rent out their properties in the future.

“WE CHOSE STEVE AND THE EDGE GROUP AND HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO REGRETS.”

If you're reading this appraisal, you'll have no doubt realised by now that Steve loves to discuss selling strategy with people and based on our earlier experiences with him we knew this wasn't an act.

The first thing Steve did when he came to provide us with an appraisal for the sale of our house was to give us tips on how to improve the appearance of (and therefore consequently the sale price) of our house - this was before we'd even finished interviewing other agents; and he demonstrated a genuine desire for us to get the best price for our house irrespective of whether he was going to be selling it or not. We genuinely believe that the few small tips he gave us which cost less than $1,000 added $15,000 to the final sale price of our house - although they were obvious in hindsight, they were things that we as the owners never even considered or acknowledged.

Steve was so competent in his role that even after one buyers finance failed, he was immediately able to engage another buyer at the original price; and to settle our home before our new house settled, saving us a significant amount of money in Lenders Mortgage Insurance.

Steve's knowledge and experience not only provided us with a reasonably quick settlement, but he was also able to get 5 offers on our house the day after the first open inspection (not that our house was anything particularly unique). He was then able to use these offers to leverage the best price for us. Even though the next best offer was $15,000 less.

You'll also notice that unlike many other agents Steve isn't greedy with how many houses he tries to sell. This means he makes a genuine effort to ensure he has time to talk to you as the owner; and to talk to your prospective buyers, even if it means working Sunday afternoon and evening. When you think about the fact that other agents have 10 houses or more on the go at once with 20 groups or so through most inspections; how are they going to put their best effort into negotiating with each of those 200 people on Monday morning? Based on our earlier experience trying to buy from other agents, we haven't found them to put much effort in. For these reasons we chose Steve and have absolutely no regrets.

“EDGE WAS THE MOST PERSONABLE OF THE AGENTS WE MET, EDGE SHOWED US A REAL INTEREST IN OUR SITUATION & DEMONSTRATED THAT HE OPERATED WITH INTEGRITY.”

We engaged Steven Thomas, prior to him founding Edge Real Estate, to sell our home in June 2008. We had received appraisals from two other real estate agencies within the 12 months leading up to our final decision to put our house on the market. All three appraisals came in within a $10,000 range so we were happy we knew where our house sat in the market. Most of the terms, conditions and fees were comparable so our decision ultimately came down to who we felt most comfortable with. In that regard our decision was easy as Steve was the most personable of the agents we met, showed a real interest in our situation and demonstrated that he operated with integrity.

We also put ourselves on the other end of the situation and decided that we would have the greatest confidence in Steve's honesty if we were looking to purchase the house.

We, like everybody else, were anxious to secure the best possible price for our house while at the same time we were looking for a quick sale. Steven responded to our requirements and provided advice on the manner in which we should proceed. In the end we sold our house during the first exhibition (3 days after it was listed on Allhomes).

While we weren't there during the exhibition we are confident that our amazing outcome resulted from Steve's interpersonal skills and honest engagement with the interested buyers. Obviously we are delighted with the outcome and the service we received from Steve. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to put their house on the market.
