Buying my home through Lakes and Portside Real Estate was definitely a feel good experience. Greg Walkington was helpful, honest and one of the most accommodating Real Estate agents I have encountered in my 6 month search for my new home. Outstanding quality, efficient, caring and professional. Thank you so much Greg.

I am writing to express my gratitude in all your efforts in selling my property. It's not an easy decision as to whom to entrust your property for sale and even harder being an interstate vendor. The reason I chose Lakes and Portside for the job is because I remember how tough they negotiated with me when I purchased this property through them 8 years ago. Although they were tough, they acted professionally and treated me with respect. The sale of this property was a difficult endeavour. The market was flat, the property had suffered structural damage from termites and it also presented poorly. Throughout the marketing period Nick and Greg kept me thoroughly informed on progress, had the courage to deliver honest feedback about price and negotiated the best result possible for me in the end. The most distinguishing act that impressed me was calling Nick one day weeks before settlement. I asked him what he was doing and he was at my property loading rubbish into a skip with a tradesman he'd sought on my behalf. He was working with the tradesman to save me money on cleaning the property before settlement. Nick knew that I'd lost a lot of money on this property due to circumstances outside any of our control and wanted to spare me any more loss. Action like this speaks volumes about Nick's personal character, commitment to excellence and the culture and integrity of Lakes and Portside Real Estate. I give my highest recommendation for all services by Nick and this company. Yours sincerely, Richard

Dear Greg, Well here we are - 9/403 Lady Gowrie Drive signed, sealed and delivered! What a trial moving is, especially when you have been entrenched for 25 years. Thank you for the prosecco and chocolates and your best wishes for our future happiness. More importantly, thank you and your staff for all your efforts in selling the property. It was a long and at times a very stressful haul. We really appreciated how you explained the process and were on call for reassurance at all times. We have learnt a lot about the agents role- and see it as a combination of sales person, counsellor, advisor, finance manager, etc as well as havening all the technology knowledge at the ready. Congratulations on your choice of staff. Everyone we dealt with was cheerful, pleasant, courteous, competent and friendly. They were a pleasure to deal with. Our very best wishes and thanks to everyone. Jo and Peter
