“Total realty is a professional company. We had no issues at all when we sold our house with them. Phil and liz were great and kept us up to date with what was going on with during the sale of our home.”

Michelle Guiver

“We were more than pleased with Total Realty . Mike and Alison communicated expertly with us as things progressed through the sales process”

Keith Burtt

“Our experience with Total Realty - Sherini Cassidy- has been excellent from start to finish. Sherini went above and beyond to sell our property. She is professional, knowledgeable, friendly and an excellent communicator. We are happy to recommend her and have no hesitation to work with her again.”

Ioana Sava

“Total Realty was outstanding assisting my family through the process of preparation and selling of an Estate. Greg was practical, reliable and kind. He is a good communicator and hard worker and was in regular contact with us throughout the process. Office staff were equally helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending Greg and Total Realty to those who wish to market and sell a property.”

Elizabeth Macfarlane

“We had good communication with the agent and she was very helpful and concerned when we had problems and gave good advise. Very honest and approachable. Would do it again with Total Realty!”

Sylvester & Katherine Andales

“We were very happy having Rachel to sell our House. She was very easy to talk with and was eager to help in any way she could. The lower commission fees were a plus and she aimed to get the best possible price. We would recommend Total Realty to anyone wanting to sell their property.”

A & E Spatcher

“Matt Hurd and Nigel Maisey are the complete professionals for less than half the cost of other agencies. Matt's marketing strategy turned out to be spot on, we sold within 8 days and had four offers. The price we got was above our expectations. We would have no hesitation in recommending Matt, Nigel and the Total Realty team to meet anyone's Property needs.”

T Jackson

“I would highly recommend Total Realty. Not only were their fees competitively priced (they were a fraction of some of the other agencies), they were also open, honest, transparent and worked hard to get multiple offers to present us. Wayne was also a pleasure to deal with - it was my second time dealing with Wayne and he was the main reason we chose to market our property with Total Realty again as he's very knowledgeable and experienced. Total Realty also handle a lot of the 'admin' involved in putting our house on the market, which was another drawcard as my husband and I didn't have the time to do it ourselves. We were very happy with our result.”

N Lock

“We are really happy with Total Realty, we found their fees for everything to be very reasonable and happy the way our property was presented on the internet etc, all our dealings with Greg back in 2017 and recently was of a very good professional standard, very happy with the price he got us for our property. We would be happy to use Total Realty and Greg again in the future if we need it.”

J Williams & M Bartle

A Bennett & K Dixon

“Selling mum's flat with Hazel was an absolute pleasure. Hazel is a confident professional who knows all about selling real estate. She made it extremely easy for me as a first home seller from start to finish. Hazel is also kind and compassionate towards both the seller and the purchaser. She will get the best price for your property and the best part is the fees for selling with Total Realty are extremely reasonable. I would definitely sell with them again and thank them for making this an enjoyable experience.”
