I’ve found H&J property manager, Cass Protheroe a very capable and her measured approach in balancing matters and providing advice to me very sound. I would recommend Cass and H&J to others for professional property management services.D Trusler

We were at a loss as to which realvestate agent we would appoint to sell our home. Clare Cantwell had so much knowledge and passion about our local area karalee it was incredible, just to prove a point if you drive around karalee and Karana downs and look at real estate signs you will see many Palace signs have a sold sign on them. thanks to Clare & Terry Cantwell and Kerrie Lewis you guys are total professionals.

We were referred to Pelham Marsh at Brisbane Boutique Property but were a
little concerned as would normally think of a larger group to deal with
We soon learnt real estate is not like Coles or Woolworths where bigger is better.
To the contra as Pelham's service and skills achieved more than we expected and we
realised it is the person not the brand.
Thank you.

I just wanted to share with you the fabulous month my agency has just experienced
and I give a lot of credit for it to the strength of the IRENE market push in the Ipswich area.
We have just had our best ever month of trading since opening nearly 4 years ago.
Not only did our sales increase but the walk-in trade to our office did as well.
We had this week, 3 walk-in new landlords into our office and I feel
it is from our added exposure in the IRENE promotion.
As well we placed an ad in our house ads looking for a new sales person and
we had a good result and 2 very strong potential new sales staff members,
and a experienced property manager reply off the sales person ad.

so we can finalise what we discussed.

Just thought I would let you know we have gained a long term (major group)
client using the IRENE concept.
When asked why they should allow my agency to sell their home since we
were an independent and did not have the backing of a large franchise, I advised
them we belonged to a larger and more comprehensive network than (Major group)
or any franchise for that matter. IRENE gives our office the ability to network your property to 4000 agencies with some 15,000 salespeople.

IRENE has a dedicated web site solely for that purpose.

They were most impressed; we got the listing and sold it within 24 hours at the
price they wanted. They have now declared we are their new agent and they are
currently working on another renovator which we will be selling in about 3 months’ time.
We even got a Thank You gift from them!!

Furthermore and I feel even more important (for the long term), I noticed the sales
team become more Professional in their attitude as they now feel part of a powerful
organisation. However the great thing is, I am still a Independent Agent running my
business my way.

Thank you IRENE, this is just too good!
