Testimonials

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. “

“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.”

“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. “

“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.”

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.

“Thank you so much Myles, for the outstanding success of the sale of my home at 41 Waite rd, Netherby.

I am so impressed by your professionalism and your genuine enthusiasm for what you do.

From the start, you gave me an honest appraisal of the value of my home and you also proposed the most effective sales campaign. Your advice was 100% spot on, and lead to a very successful result.

You gave me sound advice as to how to present it, what to invest in and what to leave alone.

You were helpful in suggesting a team of people who were honest and affordable, to prepare the house for the Open Inspections.

As the campaign started, you kept me completely informed, and your enthusiasm made me feel confident, so there was no stress or worry, the opposite – a trust and confidence that I had the best person handling the sale of my house.

Your amiable character also helped to build confidence, as I knew that everyone coming to the Open Inspection had a friendly person to communicate with.

The end result was a great success, the house sold at auction at a great price, and the bonus is that the people who bought the house appreciated and love all the things that I love about it, which are exactly the highlights and benefits that you pointed out at our first meeting. I am so happy in the feeling that the house will continue to be loved.

This sales campaign couldn’t have gone any better, in every regard. It was a pleasure all around.

Lucky is the person who has you as their agent.”

“I would like to thank you for your professionalism in the manner and approach you have undertaken in marketing and representing my mother’s Unit during this selling process.

It would seem by fate that I met you. When I came to Adelaide on 19th November 2013 to prepare Mum’s house for sale, I had not lived in the Brighton area since 1977 although I had visited many times. I sought appraisals from three agents in the Brighton area during the week of 25th November and I was expecting someone else from Peter F Burns but you knocked at the door.

After my initial discussion, without knowing your previous background, I found your knowledge of the real estate market and approach to the process of selling this Unit in South Brighton quite refreshing, especially when you would place the Unit on the market before Christmas and with a value range. The other agents did not want to start until the New Year and wanted to set a fixed price but it was your view that the markets were ‘still bubbling’ for Units of this size and position.

I found you a person of integrity, even after I raised some issues from the past while undertaking my research on you and your firm, you were willing to be open about these events and how you have moved on and returned to your ‘passion’ of working within the real estate environment.

The focus you had in organising all the components; signboard, photographs, internet, advertising and brochures, to have this property on the market after I signed the agency agreement with you on Monday 9th December 2013 was outstanding especially when you had planned to have the first showing on Saturday 21st December 2013.

Your market knowledge and insight is fantastic, when you rang me in Canberra and let me know you had shown a prospective buyer on the Friday before the first showing and had secured an offer.

I was impressed in the way you conduct your ‘trade’ securing a couple of offers on the first open day and working with the interested parties to gain the best offer for us.

On Christmas Eve, success, a serious buyer with a great offer which, is accepted and the contract received on Boxing Day. My mother (89) believes you are the real Santa!

With settlement arranged for the 24 January 2014 the exchange of documents has gone very smoothly thanks to your stewardship.

It is my opinion, due to knowledge, professionalism and relaxed manner; you straight away put clients at ease and therefore listen to your views and opinion in marketing their property.

I hope Peter F Burns has assigned some ‘interns’ for you to mentor so they can learn from your extensive knowledge and observe your abilities as these should be passed on.

All the best for 2014”

“We selected ‘Peter Burns Real Estate’ to handle the sale of two properties in Adelaide, which were sadly the part of a deceased estate.

Living in a different state meant it was essential for us to find an agent we could trust.

When Peter Burns and Alyce Young first met with us, we instantly felt comfortable, and we knew we were in good hands.

Alyce continued to deliver service over and above what was expected and helped make this difficult time as hassle free as possible. Her kindness and professionalism cannot be faulted.

Alyce is an asset to her team, and we would highly recommend ‘Peter Burns Real Estate’ to handle the sale of any property.”
