I actually heard from someone through work that viewed my house (I was unaware that they were looking) with Wayne, they said he is an excellent agent and by far the best agent they had met after viewing a lot of properties over many weeks. He followed up with email, detail was enthusiastic and knowledgeable while they were viewing. Waynes ongoing guidance, perseverance and sales expertise has been Excellent!”

M Bisphan

“Interviewed 3 Agents - Wayne was the most impressive with his knowledge of the current market, marketing concepts and house building materials/structure. The 1% fee on top of this was an additional attraction. In a difficult slow market we were appreciative of the effort and determination Wayne displayed. Would recommend Total Realty to others.”

M & R Page

Peter & Natasha Kendall

5 Oct 2015

“We had a really good experience with Wayne. He came round within a day of my phone call to do an appraisal and spent much more time looking around the house both inside and out than other companies who had done an appraisal. He gave us an appraisal on the spot which was much more specific than other companies, we really needed this as we already had an offer accepted elsewhere and needed to do our figures based on a $10 range, not a 50-60k range provided by other companies. We also needed to get an offer on the table asap. Wayne clearly explained his recommendation for the approach to take and it worked! We had one open home and were in a multi offer situation the next day , and we were thrilled with the price we got. Wayne's communication was really strong, keeping closely in touch as we worked through the ten working days to confirmation. We have already recommended Wayne to friends looking to sell. Thanks Wayne.”

Paul Moreham

14 Aug 2015

“Having spoken to agents from other companies [who called when we were trying to sell our house ourselves], we found them pushy. They tended to talk at us about how much they could sell for and they were just too 'salesy' and impersonal. Wayne was relaxed, not pushy, gave us all the time we needed, and just wonderful to have selling our home.”
