The sale of my property at Cheltenham, was conducted in my role as Executor of the Estate of my late wife.I was definitely not looking forward to this task, particularly also, as I had preconceived ideasof the way Real Estate agents, in general, conduct business. I was introduced to Greg Walkington by a mutual friend, and I must say right from the outset it was a pleasurable experience with a positive outcome. As the property was circa 1925, therewas some maintanance required. Gregs advice onwhat should be done prior to sale and what would not result in a higher price was very practicable. He suggessted that a building inspection be done, to show that due diligence had been done on the property for potential buyers. After the property went on the market there was good interest, particularly in light of the current property market. The end result was that the property sold approximately one month after being offered for sale. Even more importantly, the property sold for the agreed advertised price. Gregs professional advise, personality, excellent communications and competitive commission could not be faulted. The staff members of Lakes and Portside Real Estate also provided the same professional, efficient and pleasant service. Overall, the sale experience was very pleasing with an excellent outcome. I would absolutely have no hesitation in recommending Lakes and Portside Real Estate (Greg) to potential buyers and sellers. Thank you Greg, and good luck in the future.

We would recommend Lakes and Portside Real Estate to anyone! Nick was fantastic, always honest and up front with his opinion. Always approachable, contactable and helpful, all under the pressures of his own wedding!

Peter and Moira – Alberton

Nick was honest and friendly at all times. My dealings over the phone and in person have been of a high standard. Thank you for making the whole experience very enjoyable.

I fist met Janet at a property inspection, naturally the no -sale, no-fee is a winner for the vendor but I also liked the preparedness of Nick and Janet for the first meeting - friendly, not pushy. The professionalisn and friendliness of all staff plus the willingness and timliness of response is excellent.. I have bought and sold quite a few properties but Nick Tuck is without a doubt the best agent I have dealt with. Honest, genuine and a sense of humour! I would rate Lakes and Portside Real Estate 11 out of 10!

I originally bought my property through Lakes and Portside Real Estate and my experience was great compared to other Real Estate agents. I wanted the person purchasing my property to have a good experience too. The staff were very courteous and always had time to talk to me.
