Testimonials for Myles Pearce

Gaynor & Shaun Green

“Myles, we cannot thank you enough for the efficient and professional way in which you went about selling our house in Somerton Park. Although you came recommended to us, we met with a number of local Agents beforehand to ensure we made an informed decision and contracted the right agent. During our first meeting you told us with quiet confidence that you could get $20k more for our place than any other agent. This, I believe turned out to be totally true and reflects the 40 years of experience you have had in negotiating with potential buyers.

Your strategy of opening our home five times in seven days paid off and we couldn’t have been happier or more surprised with the 8 offers we received for our property within the space of a week. You essentially managed to turn what could have been a much longer and drawn out process into a relatively quick and easy one. Trying to keep our house clean and tidy with two young boys running around was never going to be an easy task, so making the process short, sharp and shiny definitely worked for us.

We were seriously impressed by your energy and motivation to sell our house for the best possible price. Forty years in the business does not seem to have dulled your enthusiasm for selling houses! Your policy of always returning texts and calls as quickly as possible also made us feel like we were your only clients and that our business was of the upmost importance to you.

Added to this, is the fact that you were a pleasure to deal with, bringing light-heartedness and humor to what is undoubtedly an intense period of time in your life. We valued your straight-talking approach to the whole process.

To top it all off, you then also offered to bid for us, free of charge, on a house we decided to try and buy at auction. Having never bid at auction before, it was reassuring to know that we had experience and strategy on our side. Unfortunately, we lost out to bidders with deeper pockets than ourselves but we are extremely grateful to you for giving up your time on a Saturday morning to help us out.

We will wholeheartedly recommend you to friends and family who decide to sell in the future. You have restored our faith in the existence of ethical, motivated and hard-working estate agents! Many Thanks.”

Blake Jackson & Peter Hanna

“From day one you have been outstanding. You’ve provided us with a quality service with your wealth of knowledge and insight into the real estate market. Professional and friendly at all times, you were clear and informative about the process of selling our property and were able to sell our property within a week of being on the market, for a price we were pleased with. You’ve been very easy to communicate with, responding to our questions promptly and have kept us updated with all progress and processes involved. You were referred to us highly recommended by family friends and we will be recommending you to our own family and friends – and hopefully working with you again in the not too distant future.”

“I would like to thank you for all your assistance in the sale of my house at Aldinga Beach.

It was not an easy decision to sell my first home. I had spent months procrastinating on whether to sell or rent it out. I am glad that Bridgette recommended you. After meeting with you I knew that putting the house up for sale was the right thing to do and having realistic deadlines set made things a lot easier for me to get everything prepared.

The sale was relatively quick from the time the house was put on the market and I am very happy with the price you negotiated for me. You have kept me regularly updated on how things were progressing regularly and explained things clearly.

It has been a real pleasure to deal with you and I have found you to be very professional, dedicated, organised, honest, reliable, friendly and helpful.

I highly recommend you to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a house and I know who to go to if I am looking to buy or sell again in the future.”

Jo and Nick

“Myles was an absolute pleasure to deal with. We were fortunate enough to have Myles both sell a house to us, and sell our house for us. In both instances he was very professional, highly responsive, organised and just delightful to work with.

Thanks to Myles we had a speedy turnaround on purchasing and selling. Within one day of us making an offer on a property, Myles acted quickly to negotiate and then had lined up a contract and meetings with solicitors. He walked us through the whole process so that we felt comfortable and confident in our purchase.

Once we’d signed the contract we asked Myles to sell our house. We could not believe that within a day he had researched prices, organised a contract, had photographs and plans made, and had listed our property. The very next day Myles had two good offers on the table for us.

Thanks to Myles we bought and sold within 1 week – a brilliant outcome! However, Myles maintains a close relationship at all times, and continues to keep in contact and offer assistance as we prepare for the settlement date. We would highly recommend Myles as being effective, efficient and personable.”

“Our family suffered the loss of our father and we were faced with the huge tasks of clearing out his property and preparing it for sale.

Near the end of that process we approached several real estate agents, finally selecting Myles Pearce to represent us.
It was the best decision we could have made. Myles:

  •  Worked hard to understand the circumstances of the sale
  •  Was highly professional and provided excellent guidance
  •  Rapidly organised a comprehensive and effective marketing campaign
  •  Readily agreed to viewings/inspections outside the advertised times in order to maximise the number of potential buyers
  •  Was easily contactable and kept us fully informed throughout
  •  Had an excellent understanding of the market and appropriate strategies to reflect that eg. encouraging restoration not rebuilding
  •  Was passionate
  •  Really listened to people and seemed to quickly establish a rapport with everyone he met.

Although the entire process was extremely difficult for us, Myles made the property sale as easy as he possibly could.

We would highly recommend him to anyone considering the sale of property. “

Georgina and Will Barnett

“Just a quick note to say thank you for the wonderful outcome you achieved for us on the sale of our property at Unley Park.

Having lived in our home for 27 years it was a huge decision to sell and move on to the next phase of our lives, but you made the process easy for us. You listened to what we said, and managed to achieve exactly what we asked for.

Your exceptional negotiating skills saw our house sell within 10 days and well before the scheduled auction date.

We are excited to start our new life and know that our paths will cross again professionally, but in the meantime we know we’ve made a new friend.

Our recommendation to anyone thinking of selling their home, is to talk to Myles Pearce first. Years of experience pays dividends.”

Tracey Collier

“I would like to acknowledge the professional service I received from Myles Pearce from your office. Myles was engaged to sell my property at 161 Brighton Rd, Somerton Park. Unfortunately due to personal circumstances it was imperative that the property was sold quickly. I had a number of people telling me that I would have all sorts of difficulties selling a property on a main road, however when I spoke to Myles he reassured me, that with his experience he would be able to do this.

I think it is also important to mention that another real estate agent had been engaged to sell the property before Myles and was unable to present any offers whatsoever during the contract period.

Myles gave me hints to make sure the property was attractive to potential buyers and was always available if I had any questions to ask. Myles estimated that he would have the property sold within a month and I couldn’t believe it after 3 weekends of opens he presented me with a suitable contract of sale to sign.

Myles Pearce is truly a master when it comes to selling properties and I could not recommend anyone higher.

Thank you so much for everything you have done for me Myles. “

Rita Knuchel (per Judy Staker)

“It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial for Myles Pearce of Peter Burns Real Estate. Myles recently successfully sold my mother’s property at Cumberland Park. I chose Myles as our Agent due to our previous involvement and successful history of sales in relation to our investment properties.

Myles was able to incorporate a maintenance team to bring about an excellent presentation of the property. This team approach assisted greatly in a successful outcome and an enormous reduction of stress on behalf of the vendor. Myles demonstrated a wonderful ability in negotiating the best outcome in terms of price and it was evident that his knowledge of the market and experience in his field brought about such a result. The short amount of time that the house was on the market was reflective of his highly developed communication skills and efficient manner.

No doubt Myles will be our first agent of choice with any future sales and one that I would highly recommend to personal and business associates.”

Gavin Rowe

“I am writing to express my total satisfaction with the service I received from Myles Pearce who I had engaged to sell my house at Glenalta.

Myles had previously sold a unit for me in Glenelg and was the obvious choice when it came to selling my house.

The houses either side of mine were coincidentally already on the market when I instructed him to sell mine and Myles managed to sell my property before either one of them had an offer. He had a buyer within 5 weeks.

Myles always gives honest and straight advice arid his vast experience in marketing and selling houses sets him apart from the competition. The open inspections he conducted were well attended and he made a point of contacting me after each one to update me on his progress.

I would have no hesitation in engaging his services again or recommending his services to others.”

Mark McPherson

When I decided to sell my home my partner who is an ex real estate agent suggested Myles Pearce because as she said – who else has had 45 years of experience. I previously had 2 other agents (including a very close friend) value the home and their suggested price range was much lower than my expectation. The house is in a unique cliff top location with no road in front and amazing 180 degree ocean views with the rear on a quiet culdesac. In my opinion these features should mean we could achieve a price well above the average price for the area. Myles was the only agent that shared my vision. With that we listed with Myles and planned the sales campaign. Myles recommended an auction, because of the unique location it was hard to really know the potential price I could realistically expect. We set a reserve and started the marketing campaign.

Within a relatively short time Myles presented an offer before auction that was well above the reserve price. Myles thought it was a very good offer and we should give it serious consideration. Because the offer was presented soon after the listing I thought we needed to complete the auction process and rejected the offer. Myles completely accepted our decision without question and went back to work doing opens and working towards the auction date. The auction day arrived with quite a good attendance. The auction started and there was not one bid which was very disappointing. Myles reassured us it would be ok and went back to work with the house on the market for sale. Quite quickly Myles presented us with an offer which was equal to the reserve price but well below the offer that I rejected prior to the auction. I reluctantly signed the offer annoyed with myself that I had ignored Myles advice on the original offer. The purchasers ended up cooling off for personal reasons which was disappointing. However Myles reassured us he would continue to work hard for us and went back to work.

Within a few weeks Myles asked me to meet him in his office. At that meeting he put an offer in front of me for less than what was the reserve. I was considering signing it when he said “you don’t want that one” and put another in front of me equal to the reserve price. I picked up the pen to sign it when he said “you don’t want that one either” and put yet another offer in front of me equal to the first offer that I rejected prior to the auction which I signed with a big smile.

Myles had to work very hard to achieve that sale and did so with a great deal of patience and understanding. I have no hesitation recommending Myles to anyone considering selling their home.

I’m sure Myles will remain a friend and trusted confident on matters other than real estate.
