We have a rental property with VZ and recently contacted them to sell our property in Banyo. Michael and his partners and his office crew couldn’t do enough for us. they where great. The property was sold within a very short time on the market and for the amount that was estimated at the beginning of our negotiations. We are extremely happy the way it was handled and the continues updates that were provided to us. We still have the rental property with VZ and their management of that property is very well managed with regular updates. I highly recommend VZ for selling, buying or renting out your valuable property. Thanks again Michael and your partners.

Great communication

Michael was a great agent. He has a ‘no pressure’ approach to both buying and selling, which I think many clients appreciate. His communication was spot on and he was able to sell my unit for the asking price. I would highly recommend him.

My wife and I had the pleasure of dealing with Michael in the sale of our investment property. Michael, provided an extremely accurate estimate on the value of our property and guaranteed to sell the property within a range of that price, which he did. In all of my dealings with Michael, I found him to be extremely knowledgable, practical, honest and above all else trustworthy. Michael provided regular updates on the progress of selling our property and his marketing strategy and advice along the way turned out to be pure gold. I cannot recommend Michael highly enough and I would absolutely use his services again in the future.

Michael sold me the property almost 20 years ago, managed the rental for most of that time, was always there to talk to about options, then generated a solid number of prospective buyers and sold the property within 2 weeks right in the estimated price range. He’s someone who knows his area inside out from decades of running his own agency there. He’s also someone who is easy to trust with your investment, and a nice guy to boot.

20 April 2018


We drove up a street and saw a for sale sign, surprised the agent said he would meet us there 1 hour later we didn’t have to wait for an open inspection.


We met Michael Verstandig at the appointed time.


He showed us through the door and said go for it I’m not going to harass you, we had a good look and then talked with Michael about a few things which led him to explain there was 2 offers to be submitted to the owner on Monday, this was Sunday. To our surprise Michael said he would give no indication at all about the other offers as he worked for the owners, I was impressed and said now there’s three.


I received a phone call on Monday to say our offer had been accepted, great news.


Michael did a great job for the owner I know this from the new neighbors who are friends of the owners.


My experience with Michael as the purchaser was also brilliant no problems at all, he even dropped the new house keys off to us after settlement with a bottle of wine to celebrate.


Buying a new house can be very stressful, Michael you made this a walk in the park Thank you.

Friendly, credible great agent

I recently purchased a house from Franco, from the first inspection to the house settling Franco was great to deal with. Very approachable, friendly, creditable, wasn’t pushy like other agents, he never once did the ‘this house is great agent speech’. Franco gave you time to look at the house and ask him any questions.

Very approachable, friendly, creditable, wasn’t pushy like other agents, he never once did the ‘this house is great agent speech’. Franco gave you time to look at the house and ask him any questions. He was helpful to deal with when submitting offers and throughout settlement period stayed in contact. Overall I had a great experience with Franco, very professional and friendly.

You cannot ask for two more genuine gentleman in Real Estate like Michael and Franco. I first had the pleasure in buying a property from Michael 20 years ago now. It was this young man that changed my perception of a real estate agent forever.

I could not recommend VZ highly enough. They do NOT charge for advertising, there are no gimmicks, no BS, no auctions, no inflated or deflated prices, just honestly and integrity.

I recently sold my property through Franco from VZ Real Estate and could not be happier with the result. Franco was very open and honest, his communication was outstanding and the results he achieved were fantastic. He hit the right price point and within 2 days of listing we had 2 firm offers. He quickly got both potential buyers to their top dollar and promptly finalised the deal.


Franco’s approach of honest and realistic price estimates, showing only qualified buyers through the property and regular communication paid dividends with a quick result at the top dollar.


If you are looking to sell your property, I could not recommend VZ Real Estate highly enough. I would not go anywhere else for any future property transactions.

Honesty and Integrity

Best of all he was able to achieve a record price for my two bedroom home. Click to read more...

After hearing all the horror stories of people dealing with real estate agents it was a pleasure to find such a down to earth and honest approach from Michael. He kept me informed throughout the entire process from the taking of the photos to the signing of the contract. Best of all he was able to achieve a record price for my two bedroom home.


I have no hesitation in recommending Michael and the team from VZ Real Estate

A Very Satisfied Customer

I rang Michael on Thursday asked him if it would be possible to sell my house and do you think it would take long to get someone interested. That Saturday he had a customer and with some more careful negotiation he accomplished a Great Price we could not be happier. I highly recommend his company […]

Honesty and Integrity, and just a really nice bloke!

Michael quickly earned our trust and respect, and used his knowledge and experience to ably guide us through the selling process. Click to read more...

This is the third time we have dealt with Michael to buy or sell a home, and it has once again been a positive and relatively stress free experience. Michael (and his business partner Franco) are honest and down-to-earth people who take pride in getting to know their clients and buyers alike, and genuinely try to achieve the best outcomes for both parties.


Michael is very positive and engaging and always kept us up to date with what was happening. He was willing to answer any questions, and never once did we feel pressured into any decision. Michael quickly earned our trust and respect, and used his knowledge and experience to ably guide us through the selling process.


I recommend Michael to anyone who appreciates an honest, hard working agent who takes pride in providing personalised service to achieve the best outcome for their clients.

Amazing Mel

Mel turned  up this morning  I was immediately  blown away with how lovely  and kind he was. He was thorough  and professional yet his warm nature really shone through. Click to read more...

Just felt compelled  to write in and let you  know  how impressed I am with your handy gentleman  Mel!


After years of renting we have seen many different types of handymen, with  most leaving us with less than satisfactory work.


Needless  to  say when Mel turned  up this morning  I was immediately  blown away with how lovely  and kind he was. He was thorough  and professional yet his warm nature really shone through.


He took  time and care with each item, and went through his jobs with a fine tooth comb. This sort of attention  is unfortunately lacking these days. It was refreshing  to see someone care enough to take pride and effort even in a small job like a hinge on a door.


It shows wonderful  work ethic and that coupled with his sunny disposition makes Mel a sparkling  gem amongst  his peers.


We are really grateful  to you for having a  wonderful  team . Being professional  AND  kind is such a rarity with many businesses not really  understanding  both can be achieved.  Sue embodies this fully. She is professional and hardworking while always maintaining her ethics kindness and compassion.


I was just taken off guard by Mel! He is the  same.


As I said  earlier a rarity.  What a blessing  to know you are all head and shoulders above the  rest.


Glad we are in good hands. Especially  mum who has  been  a renter for 40 years !


To all your  team at VZ have a lovely day and thank you

Testimonial for VZ Real Estate


From the first introduction, Michael, Franco and the VZ team were professional, knowledgeable, courteous and friendly. This high level of service continued through the full sale process, right to settlement day.


We always felt that the VZ Team were engaging with us with honesty and attentiveness which convinced us that our potential buyers were having similarly positive experiences. This approach facilitated a great result for us and ensured a pleasurable selling experience.


We would encourage anyone considering selling or buying a property to contact VZ and talk to Michael, Franco or one of the team to see how they can help. We look forward to engaging Michael, Franco and the team again in the future.

Dear Michael and Franco,


We would like to thank you and your team for the prompt sale of our home at The Gap, being “senior citizens” we were a bit apprehensive about the sale.


Your company was recommended to us by an associate who had also the pleasure of dealing with yourselves. At all times you kept us advised of inspections, and our sale was effected in less than a month of listing.


Many thanks for the great service you provided to us, we would not hesitate to recommend your company.


Yours sincerely

Hi


Franco and the whole team at VZ Real Estate are awesome.


My family and I were in the process of moving interstate and were  looking for a place in Brisbane. During the course of searching for our new home, we met a lot of different real estate agents who were all nice and helpful. None of them however, came close to offering the genuine, friendly and invaluable advice and support that Franco did. When we inspected the property, there was never a hard sell or the usual “I’ve had lots of offers on this place, this baby is going to go soon if you don’t put in a big offer”. It was more like being shown through a home by your best friend.


Once we had put in our offer that was accepted, Franco continued to help us through the entire buying process and was always available for a chat no matter what the time or circumstance. He even talked to my 2 year old son mid tantrum when he grabbed the phone off me! What a guy!


I really can’t speak highly enough of Franco and the team at VZ. Thank-you so much for helping us find our dream family home.  We love our new home and know we will be very happy in it 🙂


Kind regards,


Trent, Leanne, Max and Jake

Dear Michael


I really appreciated my interactions with you and Franco throughout the whole process from the initial contact, the sale process and after the sale.


I was so pleased that you also follow the Jenman System. You both treated me as a person and not just a source of business. I felt, as a person that my needs mattered to you more than any sale.


Thank you so much for your helpfulness, consideration and support, I feel I have got to know and appreciate you both at a level deeper than just a business acquaintance.


Thanks again! I will certainly be telling other people about you and I wish you both best wishes for your business and your own lives.


I will let you know when I am ready to have you both around for a cuppa.


Kind Regards

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN


We recently sold our home in Arana Hills. Our agent was Michael Verstandig from VZ Real Estate and we could not have been happier with the result we achieved and the ease of the sale process.


We first met Michael some years earlier when he supplied us with an appraisal on our property. Although at the time we were not ready to proceed with the sale, Michael kept in touch with us during the following years. When we finally decided to sell, we knew Michael was the agent we wanted to undertake the sale of our property.


We signed a contract with clients that Michael already had on his books in little over 24 hours of being on the market and we achieved a price we were extremely happy with. Michael ensured our house was presented to the market in its best possible light and we received many compliments from family and friends in regards to the quality of photographs that were displayed on the internet.


Michael’s support and advice during the entire process was invaluable and very much appreciated. We would thoroughly recommend Michael Verstandig to anyone contemplating buying or selling a property.

Dear Michael,


Chris & I wish to thank you, Franco and your staff at VZ Realty for the friendly & professional manner you handled the sale of our house.


From our very first conversation, we felt comfortable dealing with you. The detailed explanation of the selling process your company follows supported by the “How to Get the Highest Price for your Property” booklet gave us a very good understanding of the selling process. We commend you on your company’s efficiency, ethics & honesty portrayed throughout the selling process.


Your knowledge and understanding of the housing market & accurate prediction of the value of our property strongly contributed to the sale within a few days. We have no hesitation in recommending your company to any of our family & friends in the future should they consider selling their home.


Yours sincerely,


Glen & Chris Anderson
