2014 Salesperson of the year
Nick Franzmann acted for us in the sale of our property in Surrey Hills earlier this year. Throughout the course of the sale of our property, from the time we first met to discuss the value of the property and the arrangements for inspection, through to the eventual auction and post-auction procedures, Nick acted with exemplary professionalism. We were incredibly impressed with Nick in all of our dealings with him. His careful attention to detail, and comprehensive understanding of the fundamental processes involved in setting up a property for sale, in particular his highly organized inspections, expedient responses to feedback from potential purchasers and auction day support was consummate. Nick showed an astute awareness of market conditions and his assistance and advice eventually produced an auction day result well above what we had ever imagined might have been possible. We were very fortunate enough to be able to have further dealings with Nick in the subsequent purchase of our new home, where he displayed a similar level of professionalism and support. In particular, on the day we bid at the auction for the purchase of our home in Balwyn, Nick proved an invaluable guide. He helped us to navigate the auction process from a purchaser’s perspective, providing clear guidance on bidding procedure which eventually resulted in our successful purchase. We found Nick Franzmann to be a highly experienced and competent estate agent with a comprehensive knowledge of his profession. He was friendly and supportive and always happy to go the extra yard in terms of advice, assistance, and feedback. We would have no hesitation in strongly recommending Nick to any future vendors.
Selling a home is stressful enough, but to do it whilst you have decided to take a demanding role overseas seems stupid. Well it could have been. I had met Nick Franzmann over the years I lived in Melbourne, as I attended open houses and auctions. I must admit he is a far cry from the stereotypical real estate agent - professional, polite and very caring. Over the years he had kept in touch when I changed houses or when I had contacted him to see what my home may be worth. In an industry that is transactional - this was true relationship management. I had not previously dealt with Marshall White but knew they were very good. So when I decided to sell my home in Armadale and to do so remotely, Nick was the natural choice. This has truly been an easy, professional and relaxing way to sell a home. Nick took care of everything, provided support to prepare the home and the garden, was extremely flexible and adaptive to my needs and limited accessibility. All aspects of the sale were meticulously taken care of: photo's, scripts etc. and it was a real partnership. I received honest and up to date feedback throughout the campaign and excellent negotiations with prospective buyers. Most important was the level of professionalism and care. And the superb price I received for my home. The house was sold before the auction. Marshall White and Nick Franzmann are to be commended for an excellent job, making a sale so easy.
We recently sold our beloved house with Marshall White, and had the good fortune to have Nicholas Franzmann and Nikki Van Gulick as our agents. Both Nicholas and Nikki showed the utmost professionalism in handling the sale process, which included keeping us informed with what was happening on a weekly basis. Contacting potential buyers, following up on any leads, and generally making the sale a less stressful event than what it can be. The result being our home was sold for a fantastic price for which we are still extremely happy with. Prior to our engagement with Marshall White we had contacted other agents and felt that they really did not either understand our situation; or us or they lacked the personal touch that we required. Nicholas and Nikki provided all of this and more; we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We are also happy to speak to anyone about our experience thinking of using Marshall White as his or her selling agents. Finally many thanks to Nicholas and Nikki for your hard work, the phone calls, and ultimately the final price, we really couldn’t have done it without you. Please also pass on our thanks for your assistant Erin who also worked hard with ensuring the advertising went well.
Our sincerest appreciation to your firm for an organized, professional, yet personal approach, and the outstanding outcome achieved in the sale of our home last weekend. Your team are to be recommended. Nick Franzmann & Stephen Gough were particular in their thoroughness and commitment during the lead up to the auction. They exceeded our expectations despite some uncertainty (on our part). Nick’s approach on auction day showed a level of creativity and commitment that deserves a special mention. I have watched many auctions over many years and never seen or heard of the honest, direct and highly successful approach he used to assist the eventual purchasers. I never expected to be on the receiving end of $100K jump bids! I would have no hesitation in recommending you in the future. If I can be of assistance in communicating my satisfaction towards the approach adopted and the manor in which an optimum outcome was achieved, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
