John Hollings - 15 Regal Court & 4 Lakeview Court, Kirwan - Dayne

I have had the pleasure of engaging Dayne Watsons services on two separate occasions to sell my both my personal home and my investment property. My personal property was in the higher end of the market for the area and Dayne was very proactive and professional in his approach. He was constantly in touch with advice and feedback and worked very hard to move the property whilst getting the best possible outcome for us. Our investment property was on the lower end of our market and presale he helped us to position it and market it to a pleasingly quick sale. He also acted strongly and ethically in helping it get to settlement. I have always found him very honest, diligent and empathetic. He also has a very fresh approach to marketing and a great grasp on how new technology and social media applies to real estate. I would enthusiastically recommend him anyone as a great choice for their Real Estate Agent.

Debbie Blackman - 33 Etheridge Street, Mount Louisa - Dayne

My mum who is 86 recently decided that she would like to sell her home and move in to a retirement village. A friend suggested that we contact Nicholson First National Real Estate as he and a family member had always found them to be extremely helpful. Once I contacted the Principal Wayne Nicholson he placed us in the hands of his Residential Sales Constultant Dayne Watson. From the moment we met Dayne, he was so helpful and we felt we had known him for years. He took the time to listen to my Mum’s concerns and always treated her with the utmost respect. During this time, Mum and Dayne formed a bond and Mum mentioned that Dayne could have been her Grandson. We were so impressed with the integrity of this young man during this process that we would most certaily seek his expertise again and would not hesitate to recommend Dayne to any family or friend wishing to sell their property.

Matthew and Aleisha Townsend - 22 University Road, Wulguru - Dayne

Dayne, We are writing to thank you for selling what was our first home. For our first time selling property, we wanted somebody knowledgeable, honest, and professional to guide us through the process. You were all that and more! Not only did you sell our home quickly, you achieved a sale price that was close to your appraisal. Our home was marketed well and thanks to your dedication we had plenty of visitors for our open homes. We appreciated being kept informed of discussions with interested buyers and especially grateful in being able to contact you when needed, even outside of business hours for information and advice throughout the whole process. We have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends and family and would be pleased to have you sell our next home when the time comes.

Mel Jones - 11/12-16 Bent Street, Mundingburra - Dayne

I would like to personally thank Dayne for all of his advice and professionalism while my property was for sale. He took the time to keep me informed of what was happening in the area, and what my choices were. Even when there were very quiet times, I still heard from him to let me know that nothing was happening. I really appreciated all the communication, it means a lot when you have something of great value in someone else's hands. Thank you Dayne. I look forward to recommending your services in the future.

Leanne Andrew - 11/12-16 Bent Street, Mundingburra - Dayne

When I was looking for a unit to purchase in Townsville, I happened to meet Dayne at one of my inspections and I was soon impressed by him. This good impression lasted throughout my entire dealings with him, from his ‘non-pushy’ approach, through the many texts, emails and phone calls I sent and made, through to when he handed me the keys to my new unit. Dayne patiently answered each one of the many questions I had as a first-time buyer; and did so in an effective and timely manner. In all, he demonstrated a seemingly flawless liaison between myself, the tenant who was renting the property at the time and the seller. Best of all, he helped me purchase my unit at a good price. Now that my purchase is, as they say, done and dusted, I would not hesitate to recommend Dayne to any prospective buyer and I wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

Goodness, it is hard to believe that everything has finally settled! It almost seems odd to think I will not be getting regular updates from you! Thank you for your amazing attention to detail, professionalism, regular updates, ongoing enthusiasm and humour! I am absolutely sure that without your incredible sales skills and determination the property would still be on the market. You are an absolute star! Thank you again

I know that we could not have been in better hands for the long distance sale of this property . If I ever come over to Townsville I will make sure to come and say thank you .

Terry Connor - 43 Lowth Street, Rosslea - Natalie

Thank you so much for selling the property at 43 Lowth Street. This was indeed a challenge as about the only thing the property had going for it was the size of the allotment. I admire your tenacity, you hung in there with many open houses, sorted out the non buyers and tried very hard with the few possible buyers. You made suggestions re the sale without being overbearing and kept me up todate regularily with what was transpiring.You actually made me feel like I was your only client and this was the only property you had to sell. Your work ethic, personality and customer service skills will ensure you have a very successful career in Real Estate. Thank you once again and I wish you all the best for your future.

"We got one of those discount agents that sell house for $3850 and they told us we would only get $240 thousand for our home. The team came around and suggested that we place it on the market for $279 thousand, it did not sell straight away but three weeks later you sold it for full asking price. ....... The old adage "you only get what you pay for," was more than true in this instance.”

Wayne and Leanne Le Lievre - Wayne

I would like to take the opportunity to express our appreciation with regards to the recent sale of Boston Crescent, Douglas. Your professionalism, can do attitude, loyalty and positivity was unquestionable. From start to finish, we felt comfortable and informed and involved in the complete process. Your flexibility and experience ensured that the end state was achieved and at all times with our wishes. You protected us from pressure and delivered stress free / enjoyable experience. We hope you receive additional work from the gentleman that purchased our home, which was a result of your hard effort. Once again thank you and we both look forward to future dealings. Good health and fortune.

James & Christina Aston - Wayne

Selling a house is rated as one of the top five stressors in life but this just wasn't the case with Wayne Nicholson on the case. He was fantastic! Contrary to the experiences we have had with our other estate agents, he clearly and succinctly explained all aspects of the selling process and what he said he would do - efficiently, professionally and enthusiastically. At every step of the way we were kept informed on the best way forward even after contract were exchanged! His depth of expertise and knowledge of the real estate business gave us the utmost confidence and peace of mind in signing papers to effect the sale. We were really impressed!

Grant and Tarna Sim - Wayne and Dayne

"Thanks Wayne and Dayne for selling our house in Hermit Park, Townsville, in under a week. Presentation and preperation with your guidence was well received by us and enabled a quick sale with smiles on both the vendor and purchasers face. Marketing and selling of our home was excellent and lived up to our rather high expectations. Great job mate, I'd give you another go in the future. You did a great job Nico and we are both very happy with the outcome.

Barb O'Brien - 10 Coral Street, Saunders Beach - John

May - Nov 2011 was the most stressful time of my life, my world was collapsing, my husband had passed away and I had no family in Townsville. In was November 2011 and I needed to be with my family in Canberra. I had never sold a house before, let alone doing it on my own. Where do I go? What do I do? After phoning numerous agents with no luck, (they all wanted a quick sale) a very dear friend recommended John Bowen from First National Real Estate Nicholson. I was comfortable with him right from our first meeting. That was November 2011. I did not expect the support I received from the very beginning he understood my needs and tried to accommodate them. He went out of his way to attract people to viewings, even though I was 35 kilometres out of town, which meant spending alot of his weekends sitting under myh house out of the sun. All this was done without me being there, as I had packed up and moved bvefore the ink was dry on the contract. It made my decision to go before the house sold so much easier, all because I had complete trust in him. John kept me informed at all times, he did not restrict it to business hours either if it meaant ringing me at odd hours then that is what he did. I was also sent market research figures every week. It is now Mar 2012 and I have settled into my new life, my house has been sold and I now have the money to start again. This would not have been possible without John, and for that I will be eternally grateful.

We recently sold our property at 28 Salisbury Crescent, Kirwan in two days. Listed with Nicholson First National on Wednesday and sold on Friday. A remarkable effort by John Bowen. We thank Wayne and John for the professional way in which our sale was managed and have no hesitation in recommending Nicholson First National, especially John Bowen for a quick positive result.
