I chose Helen from First National Kingston at random just to find out about the home selling process. From that first meeting I decided I did not have to look any further. She was very thorough, always promptly returned messages and her follow up was excellent. Would definitely recommend Helen to any prospective seller. 51 days from going live to settlement! Well done Helen. Vendor
Helen and her team were extremely helpful throughout the buying process, including the negotiation, without being pushy at any stage. I would recommend the team again. Buyer
Just the Best! This is the second property Helen has sold for us. As we had experienced first time, her knowledge, skills, dedication, honesty, communication & buyer bank were second to none! Our property was sold almost immediately and the price blew us away! Having recently retired ourselves from the Real Estate Industry, we know all the agents in the area and Helen exceeds them all in every way. We have no hesitation at all in recommending Helen should you buy or sell property! Vendor
EXCELLENT, Trustworthy, Informed and Communicative. I have found Helen and her team (James and Katrina) to be professional, diligent, honest, communicative (even after hours) and knowledgeable of the Hobart market. I recommend First National in regards to selling property but also as Property Managers, Helen and her team have managed my properties and have made me feel at ease in all aspects of my dealings with them. Vendor
Helen is very competent and wouldn't have any problems recommending her to sell your home. Vendor
My wife and I engaged Helen as our agent to sell our property in Kingston, Tasmania. Right from the start she was upfront on challenges that could happen as well as the positives. We agreed on a price having looked at the information she had provided, as well as our own investigations, and were very pleased when we were both on the same page with no unreal expectations and no unnecessary hype from Helen. She was there for us during the lead up to placing the house on the market and was more than happy to give us hints and tips that would help us to be ready. The house was listed on the Tuesday and we had two people come through on Wednesday lunchtime and then another 2 in mid afternoon. Helen kept us informed on what had happened after each showing and we had an offer from both showings. After her negotiating we accepted an offer that was over the asking price by a substantial amount. While we are still waiting for settlement as it depended on the other parties property also going unconditional Helen has kept us informed every step of the way. We then had a need to get a rental property for the immediate future and Helen was able to get us one and did all the negotiating with the owner which included arranging for us to be able to take our cat and dog. Her enthusiasm and communication is excellent and I would recommend her to anyone. Vendor
Very happy with Helen. Worked long hours any day of the week and kept me informed at all times. Thanks Helen. Vendor
Helen did a good job for us. She is the most hardworking agent that we have worked with. Never fail to arrange inspections, even on public holidays to get our place sold. She kept us posted with the outcome of the inspections right away and her follow up thereafter was excellent. Very reliable. Highly recommended! Vendor
I still cannot believe that my unit in North/West Hobart sold so fast. Virtually hours after Helen put it on the market. However, since meeting Helen on numerous occasions, initially when I first inspected my new house in Kingston, I am not really all that surprised. Helen from the start has impressed me with her professionalism and extremely sound knowledge of the local real estate market. She is a people person and a straight talker. It is no wonder that she is in the forefront of her profession. Thank you Helen for doing a great job. Vendor
Helen listed our investment property for sale & I was immediately encouraged by her knowledge, skill & resourcefulness. I was delighted that Helen was constantly showing the property via open homes & individual viewings. There was constant feedback which was very helpful. Helen sold our villa quickly & expertly, we were thrilled with the result. I would recommend Helen over any other agent! Vendor
Helen - commenced the sale process with a well considered analysis of the market conditions. This helped set realistic expectations and a genuine hope that a sale would be realised. Upon receipt of the initial offers, with conditions, Helen provided wise counsel and allowed us to time to discern the best options without any pressure. As a consequence we received an enhance offer that was mutually acceptable. A very professional approach all round! Vendor
