"We would like to thank Darcy and the Place team on the wonderful job they did in helping us to reach a successful outcome at our auction on our house at Hawthorne.

The professionalism, integrity, courtesy and understanding displayed had us fully at ease with the whole process - even though we were quite nervous, and at times anxious, regarding the status of the market.

They had our interests paramount at all times and did not hesitate to travel over a 300 klm round trip to explain marketing campaigns, the state of the market and contractural obligations.

We were fully informed of all potential buyers who had viewed the property at open houses and at private viewings.  There was no hype or pretence but an honest opinion regarding the prospects of each of the purchasers.

The marketing campaign met all our expectations and was done to a very high standard and this we believe helped attract so many potential purchasers to our property.  This ensured a large number of registered bidders at the auction.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Darcy or any of the team at Place for either the purchase or sale of any property."

"Justine and I would sincerely like to thank you for the outstanding assistance and support you gave us in selling our old dream home and purchasing our new dream home. 

From our initial meeting with you when we first inspected our new dream home we were both impressed by your open, personable and clear communication.  In negotiating the purchase of that home your skills enabled us to make informed decisions as to what steps we needed to take in order to secure the home.

When it came time to list our old dream home for sale you were exceptionally helpful in not only advising us on improving the presentation of the home for sale but you also assisted in providing excellent service and trade referrals to help us achieve this.

Selling a home can be a very stressful experience but your positive attitude and willingness to go above and beyond our expectations of a real estate agent made our experience a smooth process.

Your feedback during our sale campaign was constant as was your availability at any time.

We were also delighted with the price you helped us achieve in only a three week period in a market that the media states is depressed. 

The Place infrastructure was also helpful in finalising our sale and purchase.

We could not recommend you more highly to any prospective seller or buyer. It's been a pleasure dealing with you."

"Like the majority of people in today's market I was chasing top dollar for my units in a terrible market.  Over the past 3 months Darcy has been able to achieve what at times seemed highly unlikely; two sales at sellers expectation.  His upbeat approach and honesty was a pleasure to deal with but above all his impeccable communication with both my partner and I was what will make him the first person we call next time."

"We used Darcy Lord from Place to handle the sale of our unit. It was the first time we had sold a property so we weren't sure of the process and were cautious about real estate agents who promised unrealistic results. After meeting with Darcy we realised he was not like that. He was friendly, professional, reassuring and knowledgeable; and spent time going through the process to ensure we were happy with everything. From start to finish, the sale process ran smoothly and efficiently. We were confident in his abilities, were able to trust his advice and judgement, and above all we felt we had someone working to get the best for us. He achieved an outstanding result for us in a very quick time.  We would recommend Darcy Lord and Place to anyone looking to sell their property."

"I know we are a number of months down the track now since you sold our property, but I wanted to send my sincere thanks, on behalf of Tom & myself, for selling our home in Hawthorne.

It was such a relief to have yourself and your team managing the sale of our home in Australia, while we are based in Dubai.

We couldn't have asked for better service or attention to detail.

As well as the super speedy turnaround from listing to sale!

I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any potential seller.

Many thanks once again and best wishes."

"Dear Darcy,
 
We are writing to thank you for the very successful result we achieved through your agency when selling our property in East Brisbane. The whole process was undertaken in a very professional manner. From our first contact with you we felt totally confident and your advice was always measured and appropriate. The fact that we were in a different state meant that your communication was even more important and we were impressed by the number of times you personally phoned us to discuss various issues. We were extremely pleased by the care in which you treated our tenant and this led to him being very co-operative during the sale process.
 
We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who was thinking of selling (or buying) a property in the inner Brisbane area."

"After searching for an inner city investment property for over 18 months and having been messed around by agents previously and missing out on other properties, dealing with Darcy Lord from Place Bulimba was a breath of fresh air.

From our very first meeting at the open house to the final day of settlement he made the whole process easy and enjoyable. His friendly manner, honesty and efficiency made dealing with him a pleasure. Nothing was ever too much trouble - in fact he went out of his way to keep in touch on a regular basis and ensured we were kept up-to-date each step of the way.

I would not hesitate to recommend Place and in particular Darcy Lord as an agent to any prospective sellers or buyers. We will certainly be back in touch when it comes time to sell our family home and move to our beautiful little inner city worker's cottage.

Thanks Darcy for making this whole experience so seamless and stress free."

"Do we deal with Dollars or People?

I began looking for a house in the Inner East of Brisbane in early 2013.  I met Darcy early on in my search at an open home and whilst I did not end up bidding on that house, I found him extremely engaging, friendly and helpful.

Fast forward six months, dozens of open homes and a few unsuccessful bids, and I was quite keen to get serious and secure a property I was happy with.  I called Darcy (with whom I had not had contact for half a year) and was surprised when he immediately remembered who I was and what kind of property I was searching for.  I hadn't experienced this with any other agent in the area, many of whom I'd seen fairly regularly at open houses over the months, so it was a nice change and left a good impression.  We arranged to meet up a couple of days later for a chat. 

We spoke for about an hour when we caught up and were the last ones to leave the building as closing time had past.  He talked me through what I should be doing as a buyer, as well as what was happening in the local area. To cap it off he gave me a few properties that fit the bill of what I was looking for and set up a private inspection with another agent for me at one of them. 

It turns out that that property was the one I ended up bidding successfully on and buying. During the bidding process, which was ferocious, Darcy gave me constant advice and took my phone calls with enthusiasm whenever I called.  I would not have ended up successfully buying that house without his help and am very grateful for it.

Many of the real estate agents I have met and dealt with see dollar signs, not people.  Darcy is not one of them.  His advice to me was crucial and invaluable.  He was enthusiastic, friendly, honest and engaging whenever we talked and he's extremely knowledgeable about the Inner Eastern part of Brisbane where I was buying.

I could not recommend Darcy more highly to people in, or potentially getting into the property market, be that as a buyer or seller. 

Thanks Darcy for all your help."

"In early 2012 I decided that it was time to sell an investment property that I owned at 32 Burlington Street, East Brisbane. At that time I employed a local agent but was unable to obtain any written offers on the property. With what I thought was a lack of interest in the property I decided to withdraw the property from sale and rent it out again.

In February 2014 I thought it was time to test the market again. On this occasion I used the services of Darcy Lord at Place Estate Agents. 

Darcy took the time to explain the method he thought most practical to sell the property and how we could market it to achieve the best possible price. From the first day Darcy started calling any potential buyers that he knew of that were looking for properties in the East Brisbane area.

The first day the property was officially on the market was a Thursday and Darcy arranged for an inspection on that day rather than waiting for the open for inspection on the Saturday. Again on the Friday Darcy arranged for several more groups to view the property. By Saturday afternoon Darcy had 5 written offers! His sense of urgency in getting people through the property and obtaining interest was fantastic. The highest offer I received was well above my original expectations and was therefore accepted.

From the very beginning the difference in the marketing and shear hard work between Darcy and the original agent was astounding. During the entire process Darcy remained positive and focussed on achieving a successful sale. While the sale occurred quickly I know that it was mainly due to the hard work and determination that Darcy demonstrated.

Thanks Darcy for your hard work, enthusiasm and complete professionalism. It was a pleasure working with you."

"When the time came to put our unit up for sale, Darcy came highly recommended by a friend who had been impressed with his advice and approach to the sale of their house. Our experience was no less positive. His presale advice was excellent, referring us to very good tradesmen who transformed our tired unit preparing it for sale. Through out the marketing process (which was not very long!) he communicated continually with us regarding prospective buyers, general feedback about the property and our own expectations. A very positive experience, thank you Darcy!"

"Being a fully Licensed Real Estate Agent myself, it was a big decision to pick the right Agent to sell my own home. After a brief meeting with Darcy in regards to another sale of a property I managed, I was impressed on how professional and how quick he got a sale and how he tried not to inconvenience the tenant, so I decided to go with him and let him run with it.

Well I must say, I wasn't disappointed at the progress and how quick he obtained a contract. He communicated with me on the whole process and I must say that with Darcy's expertise everything came together like clockwork.

Thanks to Darcy Lord for a quick and painless sale of my property, and I highly recommend you guys."

"We met Darcy at our local gym and he seemed like a really genuine down to earth guy, so easy to talk too.  When it came time to sell our house, having found out he was in real estate, we knew just who to ask.  The fact he worked for Place was a bonus, having worked with Jeremy Pink to sell our very first property many years before, we felt very confident that Darcy would do a great job.

Darcy gave us a run down of what would occur during our campaign and everything he said he was going to do, he did. The lines of communication were transparent and free flowing.  Any time we had a question or doubts, he took the time to answer and left us feeling confident and positive with the process.  You can tell Darcy has a passion for his work, he almost bursts with enthusiasm.  Whether you are a buyer or a seller, this genuine enthusiasm and hard work, is what is going to get you the outcome you desire.

I would highly recommend Darcy Lord.  He gets the job done with such professionalism and flare, you won't be disappointed."

“Thank you so much for looking after us with both our purchase and our sale.

Darcy it was a real pleasure to deal with you and your real estate team, could not fault your service.

As we were selling our home, buying our new home and also selling an investment property, all at the same time, we were feeling a little over whelmed to say the least.

 

Your approach and honesty was very refreshing and your dedication to helping with all things was greatly appreciated.

 

Nothing was an issue and every queries will followed up promptly by either yourself or Jess, made things run very smoothly.

 

We are so happy with our new home and loving our new lifestyle. With settlement close on our investment property everything is falling into Place.

 

If in the future we decide to buy or sell, you and your team will be our first contact.

Thanks again for the experience”
