25 Years Service to Raine & Horne
It was never a question as to which agent we would choose to sell our beachfront home. We purchased our home from Ben and we were extremely impressed with his follow up and professionalism as buyers so when it came time to sell we didn't think of choosing anyone else. At all times Ben kept us updated and communicated with us no matter what time or day it was. we have bought and sold way too many times to mention and work in the property industry so we are not easily pleased. Ben has been an absolute stand out agent for us. We couldn't have been more impressed with Ben, for us there is no other agent in the Mollymook area.
Ben is a true professional in the real estate field, he has excellent communication skills, has a real desire to achieve the best price possible for your house. Both my wife & I found Ben a pleasure to deal with , he is a credit to the Raine & Horne franchise .
Ben was very helpful in our purchase of our new home, he was not pushy in anyway and was great with communication between ourselves and the couple we were purchasing off. It was not an easy situation as our current home is in Sydney and had to organise a lot through email, but Ben was more than helpful to answer our queries and make the purchase as smooth as possible.
We have been involved in buying and selling real estate for the last 35 years and during that period we have dealt with many real estate agents in Queensland and NSW. In all that period we have never dealt with an agent that is as dedicated and focussed on servicing the needs of his clients, as Ben is. He continually keeps his clients advised in a timely manner of latest information concerning their property i.e. advice, enquiries, inspections and results, which is so often overlooked by many other agents. We have found that Ben's back office staff also provide a very good, timely service which is so important in a business such as ours. We would have no hesitation in recommending Ben and Raine and Horne, Milton to any potential buyers or sellers.
I think that everyone can appreciate that its harder to sell Rural property than it is Residential. It takes more time, more effort and more dedication. I think that's really where Ben has shown the quality of agent that he is. He stayed focused from the very beginning and never lost interest. He did inspections early in the morning, late in the evening, Saturdays and Sundays - whenever he had to to get the job done, and these were not 15min inspections but usually between 1 and 2 hrs which involved a lot of physical walking on our steep property, and Ben really did seem to enjoy it. He doesn't mind leaving the BMW parked up and going for a decent walk to show buyers around. His advertising campaign including drone video footage of our place was excellent and therefore we received a huge amount of enquiries, which led to many inspections. Ben's follow up with those buyers was excellent and he always let us know where we stood honestly and without the BS (big stress!). Any agent can sell a house with a white picket fence in a nice street, but if your place is a little different and unique like ours was, or Rural, or you think it may take someone who is going to put in 100% effort the whole way and not give up, then we would strongly recommend Ben Pryde. Thanks again Ben - was great working with you.
