Morne is no stranger to selling homes, but when he and his partner decided to upgrade to a newer and bigger property—one with enough room for their two dogs—they turned to Jo Harris at Lodge Real Estate to help them sell their Beerescourt home.
“It was the fourth property we’ve sold,” says Morne. “And we’d used various companies over that time.”
When they went to consult their bank manager, he recommended Jo to them. She came over to appraise the property—despite it being in the middle of a kitchen renovation—and gave Morne some tips on what features were popular in the market as well as decluttering tips to help them prepare the home for sale.
“What stood out to us was Jo’s professionalism,” says Morne. “She told us things we wanted to know and kept us up to date with the market throughout the home selling process—from start to finish, the open homes, everything.”
Jo’s advice to go to auction also paid off—the property sold straight away.
“Jo knew the market was ripe for an auction at that stage,” Morne says. “We trusted her judgement and it paid off.”
