Thank you Andrea for doing such an amazing job selling our home. We are absolutely thrilled with the result and would highly recommend you. Your professionalism, open and warm personality made the selling process so easy. This combined with your exemplary real estate knowledge gave us great confidence that we achieved the best possible result. Many thanks, Kym and Ali.
I have engaged Andrea three separate times to sell properties. On all occasions she has delivered with getting a great price on each property with a minimum of fuss. Simply great service, time after time.
Well done to Andrea on selling another one of our homes. Display homes can always be a tough sale, but yet again she achieved a price we are very happy with. In particular I would like to praise her for her negotiation skills and patience in dealing with an extremely difficult and demanding purchaser.
Andrea Cottier is the one…! No need to look any further! Not only was the team at Harris exceptional, but Andrea is in a class of her own. I’ve dealt with numerous agents in the past but how she managed to get the result I wanted under the pressure of timing and a difficult tenant, was truly remarkable. Her professionalism, efficiency, knowledge and honesty from the get go has her two steps ahead of the rest. Andrea kept me informed of the progress right up until the moment of settlement. I knew I had made the right choice when she had to deal with an obnoxious tenant not willing to participate with the sale process to actually having them co-operate with presentation and open inspections. WOW! Highly recommended!
The process was made very simple and easy.
Andrea Cottier made the process of selling our house so easy. Her professionalism, market knowledge & excellent communication skills made her the best agent to sell our house. She was so helpful and kept in contact with us throughout the whole process. We have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who wants an honest and committed real estate agent. Thank you, Andrea, for your excellent service and we wish you all the best in the future.
From the moment I met Andrea, I felt comfortable with her and knew she had excellent communication skills. I also realised that these skills meant she would be the perfect person to sell my home. When I read her profile on the Harris website, it just confirmed my assessment that Andrea really cares about getting an excellent result for her clients, and wants to make the sometimes challenging process of selling your home and moving a pleasant one. She is committed to keeping you informed every step of the way, and she does what she says she’ll do. I found I could relax when I saw how well she had researched to predict the value of my home. The rest of the sales process was just as impressive with advertising etc. all happening on time. It only took 6 days to sell my home, which was amazing and took away so much of the stress. I will be recommending Andrea to friends who are planning to sell without any hesitation. Thanks for your professionalism, warmth and ethics
Superstar again! This is the second time I’ve sold a townhouse with Andrea. The first instance she convinced me to renovate a townhouse before the sale to maximise my return. Andrea made all the arrangements with the tradies and they did a fabulous job. Then Andrea sold the property way, way above my expected price.
5 years later, I sold my second townhouse and had high expectations. Once again, Andrea suggested I do another renovation to ensure top price and have a quick result. I agreed and allowed Andrea to organise the renovation. I completely trusted her with the style, colours, finish and choice of tradies. Once again, another fabulous job. She already had a full price offer on the townhouse before the first open. I couldn’t be happier and would thoroughly recommend Andrea to anyone wanting to sell a property. 5 stars aren’t enough!
Choosing Andrea from Harris PAYS! We followed her advice and did a minor upgrade which reaped an extra $60,000 and that’s net – after the cost of the upgrade was deducted. The valuations from other agents prior to upgrade were all around $420K. We managed $507K; the house sold on the first opening – less than one month from start to finish. Very professional, did what she said she would do. Definitely would use her again.
I absolutely cannot fault a single thing with how Andrea with me throughout the entire sale.
Andrea always went out of her way to go above and beyond, including allowing me to see the property before it’s first official open, keeping me updated during the sales process, attending the building inspection and following up and fixing any outstanding building issues in a timely manner. Even giving me the opportunity to have the keys 1 day before official settlement allowing me to move in and make myself feel instantly at home.
Andrea responded to all my calls and emails efficiently and I knew she would always follow up any concerns. Her customer service skills are outstanding and I can see first hand why she has previously won the ‘Customer Champion Award’.
She was genuinely interested in making sure I had the best possible experience in owning my own home. Without a doubt, I would recommend Andrea to my family, friends and colleagues.
I would like to thank Andrea and Harris Real Estate for their outstanding service throughout my time with them. They have made the process of selling my home a relaxing one and I’m very appreciative of their efforts.
I really can’t speak highly enough of Andrea. We interviewed a number of agents before we chose Andrea – it was her professionalism, her market knowledge, but also her confidence in being able to get a much higher result for us compared to other agents in the area. We were selling from interstate so really relying on her for advice, as well as her time and ability to coordinate some work that needed to be done on the place prior to sale ie. painting, landscaping, styling. She exceeded our expectations in every area, and we are hard to please! We questioned some things along the way and she patiently worked with us – we should have just realised she knew her stuff and trusted her. She was lovely to deal with, always really open and responsive in communication on email, phone and the occasional text. And best of all was that she delivered with a sale price beyond what we expected. Would be happy to endorse Andrea any time as a great agent… and already have to several friends who are thinking of selling.
It is with great pleasure that I take this opportunity to write and thank Andrea for her excellent work in selling our property at Prospect. Before choosing Andrea, we interviewed three real estate agents. Andrea stood out not just because of her impressive track record and extensive selling experience in our area, but she was also the only agent who conducted thorough research and came well prepared with details of our property and sale prices of properties that are comparable to ours on her initial visit. Her work attitude and commitment to potential customers certainly won our trust from the start. We felt confident and reassured that she knew what result we wanted and would work with us to achieve this, and Andrea never disappointed us.
Her services were second to none. Prior to listing the property, she actively sought out prospective buyers and advised us on how to best prepare our home for an open inspection, which we felt contributed significantly to the final sale of our property. She always communicated with buyers at the open house in a very pleasant and professional manner. After each open inspection, we were immediately updated with what was happening and the amount of interest generated. Another thing we appreciated was that Andrea was contactable at any time – whenever we had concerns or queries, an email or phone call to Andrea were very quickly answered. While our home was proven to be a big challenge to many real estate agents due to its location on the main road, it was never a problem for Andrea: our home was sold for a price that we were very happy with only after a couple of weeks of listing! We could not be happier with the results she achieved for us! I’d be more than happy to choose Andrea again to sell my next home, and strongly recommend her to my friends and other vendors.
Andrea was delightful to work with in selling our property and achieved a very good sale price. Andrea’s professionalism was demonstrated from day one. She recommended the best strategy for selling the property, managed a full renovation makeover efficiently in a very timely manner and marketed the property well. Throughout the whole selling process, she kept us regularly informed of buyer developments and assisted us in all aspects of advertising strategy and decision making along the way. I have no hesitation in recommending Andrea to family and friends in addition to other vendors more generally.
Andrea is amazing at what she does, I would highly recommend her to any family and friends wanting to buy or sell! Andrea was extremely helpful with my journey of buying my first home! Thank you, Andrea!
This was the second property Andrea has sold for us, the key to selecting Andrea was her ‘nothing is too difficult’ attitude when managing the sale of the property. Her strengths & ability with communication & forward-planning created an environment for smooth settlements on both occasions. Thank you, Andrea.
Fantastic work by Andrea. We appreciate her patience and persistence to sell another one of our houses.
Andrea and Suellen must be the most pleasant, obligated and efficient agents in the business. I highly recommend them as both a vendor and a purchaser.
We made the best decision in choosing Andrea from Harris Real Estate to represent the sale of our home. We were impressed with every aspect of the service she provided us – from her understanding of our property and the market, her dedication to the sale, to the way in which she managed the sales campaign. As a result of Andrea’s efforts, we were able to present a completely updated property for sale, and were able to achieve a sales value $50,000 above expectations – all of this in just a month! We sold as soon as the property hit the market – we couldn’t be happier with Andrea and Harris!
We found Andrea to be professional and always willing to go that extra bit further and nothing was too small or insignificant to her. The sale was more than we could have hoped for and you can see she has a real passion for real estate as it shows through with her work. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone wanting an excellent agent!
It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Harris Real Estate. In particular, Andrea Cottier, who was amazing. Honest, reliable and easy to communicate with. We believe she went above and beyond to ensure we were happy purchasers. We had an extremely positive experience with Andrea and would gladly deal with her again.
Andrea did a wonderful job.
A knowledgeable agent, very smooth process and transaction.
Andrea met and exceeded our every expectation. Whilst we have sold numerous properties in the past, we let Andrea do her work and we were ecstatic with her dedication and passion to our property, and the great communication. The sales result speaks for itself. Andrea will be our first point of call for any purchase or sale in the future.
Andrea provided great customer service and weekly update reports along with a phone call after every open inspection. I always knew exactly what was happening with the sale of my home. She provided great advice on the market and potential buyer responses and worked hard to achieve my goal in the sale of my home.
I will definitely return to Andrea when selling in the future.
I would be very happy to recommend Harris real estate. Their passion and expertise shows in everything they do. From the beginning to the end of the sale we were well informed and had nothing to worry about. If I were to sell again I wouldn’t hesitate to go back to Harris.
Andrea was very helpful and informative during the whole process from start to finish. Her positive and determined attitude gave us great confidence in her ability in the sale of our properties and would gladly use Andrea again in the future.
Very happy with our Agent and the result we achieved. Andrea went above and beyond with each stage of the sales process, including our renovations. We would use Andrea again in the future.
Andrea has succeeded again. Her job was made a little more challenging this time listing a group of properties before construction of them was complete. Her job with this property in particular was made even more harder by a difficult purchaser and some construction issues. However her negotiation skills shone through, the purchaser continued with the purchase and we achieved a great price. Well done.
The service was very good. I am very happy with the outcome. the process involved was handled very well with out any hassle. went the extra mile to get the information and help me settle in the new property.
Andrea has been excellent to work with from start to finish. She gave very specific suggestions about aspects of the home that should be refreshed to give it more appeal at a low cost – kinds of light fittings, types of blinds, paint colours, landscaping, etc. She gave recommendations as to how the property should be marketed and how it should be priced. We received multiple offers within two days of our first open inspection, one of which was just above the top of the price range and I accepted it without hesitation. Andrea was right on the money as to what price we could achieve. I highly recommend her!
Andrea went above and beyond with us to ensure our home purchase was as easy as possible. No question was left unanswered, which meant no stress for us. Thanks Andrea!
I would engage Andrea again any time that I needed to sell a property as she is the best sales agent I have ever dealt with. Andrea was able to achieve a sales result for the sale of our family’s property that we thought were beyond reach. Andrea added thousands and thousands of dollars of value to the outcome. I can’t write highly enough of her ability to achieve a result and guide the process in a thoroughly professional way towards the target she has set. Our family set Andrea the difficult task of marketing a property that had previously been listed with two different agents who had failed to achieve anything approaching a reasonable offer after months and months. Once we engaged Andrea she developed a plan, executed her actions and achieved an outstanding result within a very short time. I can’t recommend Andrea to you highly enough.
Buying our first home was very daunting, but Andrea Carr made it very easy and put our minds at ease with her professional and caring attitude. We cannot say enough how much we appreciated her assistance. The property was also presented extremely well by Harris which made us fall in love with it!
