 “I had my property on the market with another real estate agent and the only suggestion to help me sell was to “lower the price” which really didn’t sit well with me.  I contacted Matt and he came to my house and openly told me of the marketing strategy that he would apply if I utilised him as a real estate agent.  This in itself showed me that Matt had my best interests in mind, as I could have easily taken his advise and passed it on to my existing real estate agent.  But I didn’t, I changed over to Matt and I think that was the best decision I made.  Matt strongly marketed my property for me, kept me up to date at all times and was available whenever I needed to get in touch with him.  In a really hard market, Matt sold my property and once “the signature was on the dotted line” he continued to ensure that things were still running smoothly for me.  My experience with Matt has been 100% positive and when I am ready to sell again, I will be contacting Matt straight away.”

 “We wish to commend Matt O’Neill for the way he managed and negotiated the sale of our home in Oxley recently. Matt knocked on our door over a 3 week period and approached us to secure the house for sale and assured us that he could achieve a satisfactory result. His actions from the outset engendered confidence in us that he could achieve the result we wanted and that is what Matt did. Matt kept us informed by phone and email at every phase of the process. He was ethical, enthusiastic, energetic and polite, and forthright in urging us to keep the property attractive and desirable right up to the point of handover. We are very pleased with the final result. Our opinion and confidence in the Real Estate industry has been restored and we would have no hesitation in recommending Matt to anyone looking to sell their home.”

"My husband and I would highly recommend Matt and his team at Place for not only doing a wonderful job of successfully selling our home, but also for having the patience and energy. Matt continued to put in 100% throughout the process and was always available and willing to answer my many questions. Selling a home with 2 small children was always going to be somewhat difficult; however Matt understood this and was very helpful and patient with us. We would definitely use Matt in the future when either buying our next home or selling. “

 “We would like to tell the story of the wonderful success in finding the best buyers for our home. We had been on the market for 60 days without the slightest interest with another
Agent, when a neighbour mentioned Matt O’Neill, who had been persistent in continuing dialogue with them as they also lived in our suburb, regarding house sales. As we already had thoughts of changing agencies, we felt that, seeing he seemed so determined, it just might work for us, in a difficult time coming out of the Global Financial Crisis. We had the added difficulty of not living in Brisbane, but in Western QLD, which made the situation even more stressful. After a phone call he called around to see us at our friend’s home in Oxley that same night, as we were staying with them while tidying up our house after tenants and we took Matt to see over our home. We signed up after his positive comments and a chat. Within 2 days he mentioned he had some potential purchasers ready to view the property and on the first day on the market, Matt showed them through and rang us with an exceptional offer. I would highly recommend Matt O’Neill to anyone considering selling their property regardless of where in Brisbane as his professionalism and feedback is superb“

 “Upon meeting Matt, I was confident he would sell my home. My property had previously been on the market with another Agent and unfortunately did not sell. Within the first two weeks of being listed, Matt had negotiated and presented an offer which I was very happy to accept. Matt is an open and honest operator. He gave me all the information and facts needed to make informed decisions regarding the listing price and marketing campaign. Matt didn’t pressure me in to doing anything I didn’t want to do; rather he gave me his advice and let me make my own decisions. Matt is a great communicator, and I would receive updates on the progress of the sale of my home every second or third day from the day it was listed until the day it settled. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone looking to sell or purchase a property. “

 “My property was on the market with a different agent for 3 months. Following a disappointing number of viewings and no offers, I contracted Matt O’Neill as our Agent.  Matt’s approach, from initial consultation through to closure of sale, was professional yet friendly. He provided a fresh approach to a very tired property and stimulated revived interest with a tailored advertising and sales approach. Matt also helped arrange for professional help to bring the property up to presentation standards within a limited budget. As my Agent, I valued his timely updates and constructive feedback on viewings and progress, as well as his commitment to securing an offer amenable to both myself and the buyers of the property. I would gladly recommend Matt to any Seller or Buyer alike. “

Matt did a really good job of getting people through the door, which is an important part when selling and did a great job of keeping us in the loop. We ended up selling for a good price in a tough market. I would recommend using Matt as your agent.”

“We wanted to write and let you know how happy we are with the way you handled the recent sale of my Uncle’s house at Chelmer. The whole process was so stress free that I can hardly believe it’s over! Matt’s communication skills were excellent. He communicated regularly, updating on the current status of the sale process. We always knew exactly where we stood. Whilst the decisions were always ours, Matt provided valuable advice and guidance during the process to assist in making those very important decisions. We have been recommending you to everyone we know, and look forward to using you again when we next sell a property, thanks Matt.”

My Wife and I are very happy with the thoroughness and professionalism you given us and appreciate the frequent updates. We have recently purchased another property in Central Queensland and have received very poor service from all providers and it just goes to show that Place and yourself are on another level. I would recommend place to my friends and family back in Brisbane if they were looking to sell. Thanks again’.

 “In February 2010, I decided to put my house on the market with the original agent who was insistent that my house could sell for $20000 more than I wanted for it. Unfortunately the home did not sell and the agent missed the opportunity. Matt O’Neill from Place Graceville came on board after knocking on my door 9 months later. Dealing with Matt was a complete difference to what I had previously experienced and I found Matt to be the utmost professional at all times.  I told him what I wanted and I wasn't going to budge. To his credit and amazing amounts of effort it was not long until Matt did what no other could do, sold my home for a great result and before long a SOLD sign out the front, and ABOVE market expectation. If you let Matt do what he does and he will get the job done. I couldn't recommend Matt and Place Graceville on any higher pedestal. Matt was 10 out of 10 for service, professionalism and getting the job done in a tough market. Thanks Matt!!”

 “I was first contacted by Matt O’Neill through a phone call which was not expected, especially since I live at the Gold Coast. Matt was very enthusiastic in letting me know of a recent listing in the same complex our investment property was located in Oxley which Matt just placed on the market. Although not ready to sell our property at that time, Matt was consistent in staying in contact and 6 weeks later we decided to place our property on the market with Place. Without hesitation Matt drove down to our property at Runaway Bay and listed our property for sale. Within 5 days Matt had marketed the property, brought buyers through and negotiated exactly what I anticipated in price. I highly recommend Matt to anyone considering selling as his determination and professionalism were clearly obvious from first impressions.”

 “Of the 4 agents from the local area who passed through our property pre-sale we chose Matt from Place as he offered the clearest explanation of the sale process, a structured advertising campaign, and regular open-houses leading up to a sale by auction. Matt’s photographer really made the best of the house’s features in an evening photo shoot and no doubt the amazing pictures increased the interest in the property and resulted in well attended open houses. The house eventually sold before auction for a price we were very happy with – above that which a couple of the other agents had suggested as ‘realistic’. I would use Matt again as my sale agent without hesitation. Thanks for your involvement in the sale, especially fitting this in around your own family event! All the best”

“Matt and "Place" recently sold our townhouse. Mat was both professional yet personable with all his interactions with us, and was happy to offer us his advice and considerable experience. Both before going onto the market, during and after we sold our property, Matt/Place showed commitment and a genuine desire to offer personalised service, while not making us feel pressured to make any decisions we did not feel comfortable with. The end result was us selling our property in a week and receiving a price we were happy with. I would not hesitate to use Matt or place in the future when selling or buying. “

This enabled us to purchase in an area we wanted to live. We were also impressed by the way you supported us through the sales and kept us informed of the progress.

“We purchased our home through Matt O'Neill and found Matt such a pleasure to deal with, he is honest, professional and hard working. As we valued Matt's expertise so much we decided to engage him to sell our unit. Matt displayed exceptional personal skills in dealing with our tenant and following up on leads. We experienced an issue with our contract and Matt was the glue that held the deal together. Without Matt we believe the unit would still be on the market. If we buy or sell another property we would have no hesitation in having Matt as our agent.”

We first came in contact with Matt while attending an open house in Yeerongpilly earlier this year, and have had quite a few dealings with him in the weeks and months following. Although my wife and I decided to purchase another property and not the one he had listed, we felt compelled to describe on paper the good experience we have had in out interactions with him. Claire and I found to be cordial, transparent, knowledgeable, and definitely patient. Never once did his winning personality falter. We wish him all the best, and we have no doubt that these personal qualities will prove fruitful to his business in the future.”

 “As inexperienced vendors we were looking forward to moving on from our beloved home of 21 years, however we weren't looking forward to the process we would have to undertake to get there.  Now that we've done it we can honestly say that since being in contact with Matt O’Neil it couldn't have gone any smoother. Matt was proactive in his approach making sure to keep in constant contact with us, and he wasn’t afraid to work hard for the sale. Despite our inexperience Matt always treated my wife and I with the utmost respect and patience, never hesitating to explain anything to us.  Any advice he provided was always backed-up with well-researched quantifiable data. During our marketing campaign we felt completely at ease that Matt was doing everything to market our property to its potential, and the fact that he managed to organise many more inspections than previously listed "local" agents was evidence of the commitment he made to us.  Ultimately however this letter of recommendation is all words without achieving a good result, and a we believe we did that by achieving the highest sale in our suburb for the past 3 years. To reiterate we are very pleased we decided to list with Matt and we recommend him to everyone.”

“We recently sold our home through Matt O'Neill and Place Real Estate.  We could not be happier with Matt and his team at Place.  Matt designed an excellent marketing plan that was very affordable and provided us with the opportunity to showcase our home to our target market.  At every step of the way Matt was there to provide advice, guidance and encouragement which was a great help to us given our limited knowledge of the real estate
market.  We were provided with a timetable outlining each and every step of the marketing plan and were also provided with comprehensive feedback at the end of each week.  The layout and design of the marketing plan was exceptional with the photographs showcasing our home to potential buyers.  This feedback was invaluable to us as it gave us a true indication of our homes current value in the market place as well as providing
general feedback on our home.  Matt conscientiously sought feedback from each and every person who viewed our home and followed up every lead to ensure we did not let an interested potential buyer slip through our fingers.  Matt consulted with us continuously throughout the process and what's more listened attentively to our thoughts and comments.  When Matt had secured a purchaser for us it was at a very good price and one that we were happy with.  Throughout the entire process Matt was there to guide us at every step and ensure we understood every aspect of the contract and our requirements and
entitlements.  Matt and his team at Place were a pleasure to work with, were extremely professional and knowledgeable and worked diligently to secure a purchaser for our home.  I would not hesitate to recommend Matt to anyone who is even thinking of selling their home.  You will be in excellent hands with Matt and the team from Place."

He guided us through a lot of the process which as first home buyers we weren't 100% aware of.

"We would like to commend Matt O'Neill.  Our house was on the market for some months with another Agent when Matt phoned to ask how our sale was going and if Place could help us.  What a relief!  Matt is open and honest and within the hour had visited our home, given us all the facts on selling a 'unique' property and set out very clearly Place's marketing strategies.  We felt very confident with the marketing plan and experienced 'money well spent' in every respect to secure a successful sale.  After a number of 'open house' days, great follow up from Matt with phone calls, texts and emails we had an offer, in fact a number of offers.  Matt is a wonderful communicator and a great positive force in what is a very stressful time for potential buyers and sellers.  We would highly recommend Matt O'Neill to anyone considering buying or selling property as our faith in the Real Estate industry has been restored, thanks to Matt's patience, energy and professionalism".

 “We reluctantly decided to sell our much loved house in Corinda as we didn’t want to have the stress of knowing if our property would or wouldn’t be affected by flood waters again as it was in 1974 and 2011. We contacted three local real estate agents to give us an appraisal, and Matt O’Neill from Place real estate agency was the outstanding agent from the moment we met him. Matt has the most amazing knowledge of the area, he is familiar with every property sale, both recent and historical and came prepared with a great marketing plan. We really liked Place’s marketing strategy, and Matt’s very honest and open approach to selling our house. Although there were some anxious moments throughout the process, Matt was always available to ‘get us through it’ and our house sold within 5 weeks for an honest price. We would certainly use Matt again for our next property sale and purchase and recommend him to anyone who is thinking of selling their property.”

“Recently my partner and I purchased a property in Dunleath St, Durack. The purchase was made through Matt O'Neill at Place. This was our first home so we were both unsure of the whole process (which can be a very daunting and stressful time). During this time we did have a few ups and downs with finance and hit a few bumps in the road. Consulting with Matt, he gave us options and advice to help us out. Matt was so helpful, and if it wasn't for him we wouldn't be in our dream home. Would I recommend another buyer to see Matt? YES. Would I recommend another seller to see Matt? YES. Matt was an absolute pleasure to deal with, and really did everything possible for us. We couldn't be happier with the service he provided. “

 “If you want to sell your house, and sell it quickly and for the best possible price, I can only say “Get Matt on the case”. Matt chased me relentlessly for my business.  To be honest, he drove me crazy; he just wouldn’t give up.  However, when my contract with another agent expired without any offers, not even ridiculously low ones, Matt was the first person I thought of to appoint as my new agent.  I knew that he would be just as persistent in his quest for a buyer for my property as he was in his quest for my business. I’m so glad I did.  His tenacity paid off very quickly.  On the day of the first open house, Matt had not one, but two contracts and, long story short, the contract was unconditional two weeks later.  I don't think it was an easy win for Matt but I’m sure it was an interesting one.  Throughout some very challenging times, Matt maintained his calm (and no doubt helped me maintain mine), kept on track and kept things moving in the right direction.  He also managed to keep things going until he had a price that was right up there that I was extremely happy with.  No mean feat in the current climate. I would have no hesitation recommending Matt and Place and if I was ever to sell another property, he is the man I would call to help me do it.”

Matt O'Neill is without a doubt, the best agent we have ever worked with. His approach is professional, consistent, transparent and dedicated and we are delighted with the outcome he secured for us in the sale of our property. Before we gave our listing to Matt, he helped educate us on the current market situation, kept us up to date regularly and was very patient until we were ready to go to market. Once we listed our property with Matt, he managed our expectations and kept us informed every step of the way. Our home was listed on a Wednesday and we had our first contract by Thursday, plus another four contracts by our first open home on the Saturday - all above our expected sale price.  Matt is incredibly easy to deal with, has detailed knowledge of the Western suburbs, brings an extensive contact base and knows how to work with both vendors and buyers to achieve mutually satisfactory outcomes. One of the best decisions we made in relation to this property was engaging Matt to sell it for us and we absolutely recommend him to anyone who is serious about selling or buying a property.

 “We met Matt more by chance than by choice but were extremely pleased with the quality of care he provided.  This was our first house sale in Australia and we were slightly unfamiliar with the process so we interviewed a handful of real estate agents to ensure we understood our options.  We were ready to move forward with our preferred agent when Matt happened to knock on our door, unannounced, as he canvassed the neighbourhood one evening.  He professed to be the realtor of choice for Chapel Hill as he lived in the area, had a number of recent sales and a portfolio of clients looking for homes.  He said he’d have a suitable offer in hand within a week.  True to his word, he brought a family through the property and had a secure offer the following day.  The terms did not quite meet our expectations so Matt chased some other leads and managed to bring another family through the following day, and same thing, written offer in hand.  Matt had managed to secure 2 written offers before the For Sale sign was even on the lawn.  Thank you Matt, your persistence won us over and we are very pleased with the results!”
