Simon Young Testimonials
Great ExperienceThroughout our selling experience, Simon made us feel comfortable to raise any concerns or queries. Simon drew on his building experience and understanding at renovation costs which allowed us to achieve our desired sale price. We continue to draw on Simon's wide spread market knowledge now we have turned from seller to buyer.
Made the Whole Sale and Purchase as Stress Free as PossibleSimon has a very sound knowledge of the Brisbane property market and was able to manage the vendor expectations accordingly. As a result there were no surprises during the transaction and the property sold on Auction day - a great result.
Very Happy with Simon & Sotheby's International RealtyI would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your time, assistance and hard work in selling my house at 18 McCawley Street, Stafford. You have imprinted a very professional impression on me. You are a very kind, polite and thoughtful gentlemen who only had my best interests at heart. The whole selling process was very easy, from our first meeting all the way through to the house selling at auction day. I understand that selling a house where the owners are separated can be more difficult, but through your incredible communication and great advice, you certainly made me feel more at ease. I looked forward to our weekly catch up where you were very considerate working around my schedule. The bound weekly update was imperative to my understanding of the interest and the comments on the property. Your building background and knowledge was an added benefit when selling our property, not only because our house wasn't certified but also in identifying defects in the house and resolving these for maximum interest in the property, resulting in a very satisfying sale price at auction. You were a pleasure to deal with and I would have no hesitation in recommending Sotheby's International Realty at Ascot due to your employment with the firm. I will surely look forward to working with you whenever I do future property transactions.

Simple- Simon's the bestSimon is the best. He has a great feel about him, gives realistic expectations, and gets the job done. When I met Simon Young, I felt completely at ease with Simon handling the sale of, what could have been a difficult sale ( my house was not a show home, that's for sure). I was so impressed I introduced Simon to my neighbour as prospective vendor. I felt he would be interested in Simon's marketing strategies in the Grange area. My property was marketed and sold in very good time and due to Simon, I got a great price and am renting the property back from the new owners as part of the deal. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and Simon Young's performance. Thank you Simon.

Great ResultSimon did a great job of guiding us through the sale of our property. We live overseas so it was difficult enough, but Simon kept us well up to date with emails, texts, phone calls and detailed reports. He had a solid handle on the market in the region and provided us with credible information all the way through to our sale at auction.
A+++ AgentSimon did exactly what he said he'd do. He kept us informed along every step of the way and provided no nonsense advice and guidance to deliver the best outcome for our sale.
