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.

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. 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.

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

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.


Best Wishes

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

Dear Michael & Franco,


Thanks again to you both for a quick, successful sale.


This is the third property you have handled for us over the last ten years. Why do we keep using your services? Well, in total honesty, we have been unable to find better.


Your approach to selling real estate is quite unique and Cheryl and myself find that it suits our demeanour i.e. relaxed and being very honest and open in your dealing with all clients. Your professionalism is unquestionable and aside from your work ethics you are both very nice people.


As you both know, we have recommended your services to many of our friends and will continue to do so.


Thanks again for the great relationship and long may it continue.


Yours sincerely,

Dear Michael and Franco,


I would like to thank you both for your tireless efforts to sell our home in a tough market. There was allot of time taken on our web site listing, and all the photos did the house justice. Other web sites I have looked at only had one or two photos and the angles were very ordinary.


We also appreciated the time spent before the listing explaining recent sale prices, and also what we could do to maximise our sale price. I am also aware of how you accommodate the buyers, ensuring that you are there at a time which suits them, even if it is at 6:30 PM on a Sunday night. Every inspection was backed up with a phone call to us for an update, and we were never made to feel like we were taking up too much of your time.


We feel we got absolute top dollar for the current market, even though it was less than list price. It is the market that dictates the sale price, not what we would like or need to get. If we hadn’t listened to your sales strategy I am sure it would still be for sale.


Thank you for your honesty and patience, while dealing with us (emotional sellers).


Regards,


Rachael and Robert

I just want to say thank you for selling my home so quickly.

Dear Franco,


I just want to say thank you for selling my home so quickly. I have lived in the area for over 50 years and was recommended to your agency from friends who have had the pleasure of dealing with you in the past. And I too am glad to say that you lived up to your reputation and exceeded my expectations.


Not only was my home sold quickly, but the selling process was very smooth and stress free. And your professional and personal manner was very different to my previous experiences with real estate agents. Nothing was too big or too small.


I have no hesitation in recommending Franco and his team to any prospective seller safe in the knowledge their requirements will be taken care of.


Thanks again and all the best for the future.


Best Regards

Minimum fuss and exceptional service

Hi Michael Letter of Thanks.
We were very impressed with Michael's honest selling strategies and the professional way in which he and his staff handled the sale of our home.
It was with minimum fuss and their exceptional abilities that saw our property listed one day and sold the next day and with the desired outcome.
We both highly recommend this proficient organisation and thank Michael and his crew.

Dear VZ Real Estate


I just wanted to thank you for your help in the selling of my father’s home last December, even though you were professional you were also very friendly, and added a personal touch.You made it seem like my brother and I were your only clients.


We were both elated that you sold the house two days after it went on the market, and got us the best possible price. Which was a lot higher than what other agents had quoted.


We went with you, as we liked the idea that if we were not satisfied with your work, then we could cancel our contract with you. We also liked the idea of not having to pay large advertising fees. Yet you had a simple, but yet very effective way of advertising. And we also liked your honesty, and straight forwardness.


I would have no problem with recommending you and VZ Real Estate to other people, and would be very happy to use your assistance again.

Dear VZ Real Estate,


I just wanted to let you know that my fiancee Angela and I were very happy and impressed with the method and approach that was taken by yourself and your company when selling our house.


We are very glad we chose VZ Real Estate, even though I feel the company isn’t very large and well known to most people, this should not be a deterrent for other people thinking of which agent to use when selling their own home.


We felt you were very professional, reliable and honest in the service which you provided us and we greatly appreciate everything you have done for us.


It was remarkable the short amount of time it took for you to sell our property.


We would not hesitate in recommending your company to family, friends and acquaintances when looking to sell their properties.


Regards,


Christopher Long

Our sincere thank you to VZ Real Estate for the professional way you sold our home in Bunya Downs.


After receiving a letter from Agency in our letter box we phoned as we had been thinking of selling. When you visited us we were immediately very impressed by your friendliness, approachability, professionalism and down to earth and honest manner.


The Team immediately got busy and sold our property very quickly, expertly negotiating an excellent result for everyone.


We are very happy indeed that we found VZ Real Estate and would recommend them to anyone wishing to sell their property.

Efficiency coupled with friendliness and consideration

Hello everyone,


If you are reading this letter I think we can safely assume that you are either about to sell or about to buy some real estate.


I know that it was my lucky day when an agent knocked on my door because thay introduced me to the excellent team at VZ Real Estate. She was door knocking the area as part of her training. I found her to be a very pleasant person with a lovely manner and personality to match. On subsequent visits we discussed the possibility of my future move to a townhouse should I sell my home.


At no time did I feel pressured to sell and our conversations were always enjoyable. Her initial interest brought about the team eventually handling the sale of my house and subsequent purchase of a townhouse.


I can honestly say the two transactions were seamless and all the details were handled with a high degree of efficiency coupled with friendliness and consideration by Michael and his team. I wish VZ Real Estate every success in the future and I know that their determination to succeed will give them a strong advantage in a very competitive field.


I would say “Good Luck” but I know that luck has very little to do with being hard workers who will always have their client’s best interests at heart.


Yours sincerely,


 


Pam Stewart
