“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

“Ali was fantastic to work with on the sale of my Mother's home. She was honest, had great communication skills and always followed through on what she said she would do. I would highly recommend Ali (& Total Realty) to anyone looking to sell.”

H Hollingworth

“We have always looked forward to selling with Total Realty. We always recommend them to people we know who are thinking of selling.”

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.”

R & K Forward

“A company with a professional and friendly team member who had a great understanding of the market and was lovely and helpful to work with.”

R Withell

“The number one difference is clearly the large amount of money saved on commission and marketing cost. Other real estate agents told us that we would lose more on the sale price than we would save on the commission, but we are absolutely convinced that it wasn't the case as we got several high offers in which clearly the buyers had offered their maximum price, with the top ones exceeding our highest hopes. The sale was extremely quick (10 days after listing, only two open homes) which was another bonus. We were extremely pleased with the professionalism and attention to details Marc and Wendy demonstrated in every step of the process. As we were interested in another property they were promoting, we saw how they manage their open homes and had never seen such quality of service before. In summary, we highly recommend Total Realty and particularly Marc and Wendy.”

J & L Ehinger

“Total Realty is the complete package. A slick and professional advertising package that is far-reaching through print media and online content. All communications through Dean (the agent) and the Total Realty office was timely and well presented. Value for money based on fees, is a cut above any other agency.”

C Geddes

“Excellent service.”

G Earnshaw & C Lindsay

“Love the commission rate.”
