Jeanne Motteram is an absolute legend!
We operate a Real Estate business on the Redcliffe Peninsula, specializing in higher end properties.
I first came across Jeanne when I was asked to appraise a canal property that was a little over 20 years old and very dated, both in its interior decor and furnishings. These properties are traditionally quite difficult to sell for a premium price with average days on the market currently well over 100 days (to get a contract).
Jeanne and I discussed what the property needed to have done to it. The owners wanted to add value and make the sale process faster and easier, whilst at the same time achieve a premium result. The budget as always was very strict.
It was at this stage that I was appointed to sell the property, with Jeanne also given the almost impossible task of a 4-week deadline to work her “miracles”.
Well, work miracles she did. Jeanne coordinated all the trades and ran the process like a military operation. The project was delivered on time (I couldn’t believe it) and all the finer details were taken care of. She used the right people, from the painter/decorators, gardeners, floor polishers, electricians even the property stylist.
The end result saw us given a remarkably saleable property that was almost unrecognizable from the one I appraised 4 weeks earlier. This allowed us much more scope to market and Jeanne’s work helped us achieve an outstanding result – over $100,000 more than our initial estimate (with Jeanne’s cost barely 1/3 of this). In other words, the investment the owners made in Jeanne “tripled their input”. Not only did the sellers bank more money than we imagined possible prior to the property overhaul, the sale period was compressed with over 30 inspections in a couple of weeks.
The property went under contract and was settled within 45 days from its initial listing date (way less than half the area average) with interest from multiple parties. With Jeanne’s help the owners achieved everything they set out to do and more.
Jeanne did such a good job that I cannot do anything but recommend her. She is focused, hardworking and knows her stuff. SIMPLE!
