“Upon meeting with several agents to handle the sale of our property in worsening economic conditions, we selected Peter F Burns to manage the sale. This decision was based on the positive and clear direction, in uncertain times, displayed by Peter and Alyce during our meeting.
This was followed up by professionalism and transparency in all communication and documentation during the advertisement and inspection phase and during sale negotiations. Alyce was diligent in every open inspection and made available her time to ensure we were kept up to date with how the sale was tracking. Communication from Alyce was constant, which was a welcome difference from 3 previous sales.
I am confident that the successful sale was completed due, not only to the market experience but also the professional and friendly nature that Peter and Alyce displayed during the process.
I would highly recommend Alyce and the Peter F Burns team to manage the sale of your property.”
“We had been with Peter Burns Real Estate since 2006. We asked them to handle our rental property in Adelaide, as we had moved interstate.
Sue Middson from Peter Burns Real Estate handled our property until we decided to sell this year (2013). Sue was absolutely brilliant the whole time we were renting the property. She was always so polite and very helpful with issues we had with repairs, tenants etc. We would recommend her to anyone.
Then came the sale of the property, Sue put us on to Alyce Young, to say the least, she was brilliant. I was very impressed with her professionalism, understanding and help she provided throughout the sale. She kept us informed and offered plenty of advice.
Within weeks of Alyce contacting us, the property sold. We were amazed at how quickly she got the ball rolling and how quick the sale was made; we hardly had to lift a finger.
We have had dealings with other Real Estate agents in the past and I must say that Alyce is well above them and the best.
We will be recommending highly to others, Peter Burns Real Estate, to handle the sale of their property.
“We want to know how much we appreciate everything you did for us, to achieve the very best result for the recent sale of our home.
We always remembered how well you handled our previous property dealings some 15 years ago, and luckily for us you were still in the business, and we were able to use you again. Honestly, we did not want to even approach anyone else.
To recall, just 5 weeks ago we asked you to do a valuation on our house, you turned up right on time, we had a very good discussion, and you gave us a realistic valuation, and from the moment you walked in the door we felt at ease, and knew you were the man we wanted.
That same day we looked though a house that interested us, we fell in love with it, and a few days later we signed the purchase contracts.
From the moment we asked you to proceed with the sale of our house, you hit the ground running and immediately organized a program of open inspections, leading up to an auction sale.
Throughout the stressful process of selling a house, you always made yourself available at anytime, if we left a phone message you were always quick to return our calls, and your regular communication and advice was fantastic.
Anytime we started to stress, you had the ability to calm us down.
We felt a great rapport with you, and we had the benefit of your wealth of knowledge and experience, which was clearly evident in the way you went about your business.
You were very honest and realistic in any advice you gave us, a true professional, and one with high integrity.
In the end, your efforts resulted in a auction which drew a good crowd, the buyers turned up, and the Auctioneer achieved the best price the market was prepared to pay.
Myles, we reckon you are the best in the business, and a top bloke to go with it.
We wish you the very best in all that you do.”
“The Scene: Oct 2013
We recently needed to sell my father’s home for his progression into “Aged Care”.
So we initially casually contacted you to get an idea of the worth of the house.
Some time after the valuation we decided to engage you and proceed to sell.
Nothing was too much trouble, you kept us informed each step of the way.
During the process we always had a clear, concise explanation of the procedure and progress.
Father had lived in the house for 61 years so it was a very sentimental time for him.
You dealt with the situation in a very sensitive way.
We had to return interstate, but that didn’t hinder the process in any way.
Amazingly you sold his property within 2 days of the sign going up, and then exceeded our quotation, you negotiated an excellent result for us.
Thank you so much for your outstanding effort in selling the house.
Thanks again for a fantastic result.“
“Marion and I wish to thank you for managing the sale of our family home at Seacliff Park. You have assisted us to secure an unconditional contract at a very good price during a time of economic uncertainty, just prior to the election.
You were recommended to us by various family members who had an association with you since the 1980s.In particular we appreciated your professional approach and integrity, which was reflective of your many years of experience in the industry. I particularly appreciated your positive approach which instilled a high degree of confidence and trust. You always followed through with the various steps and coordination of the process.
On this occasion our property went straight to auction due to the unique style of the home. Your choice of auctioneer was excellent and he delivered a great outcome. I noticed that you were able to negotiate with the bidder at a crucial time to bring satisfactory closure for all parties.
Your ability to estimate the property value was very realistic and accurate. This reflects your insight and being well informed of industry trends.
Finally we have appreciated your generosity in sharing trade contacts to assit the renovations of our unit at Brighton.
We will not hesitate to recommend your services to our friends and family.
Thank you once again for assisting us. We wish you well in your future business.”
“Myles Pearce has been our miracle man!
We decided to do things the very hard way and purchased a property subject to sale of 2 properties with the addition of having a 3 month old baby. It was something we could only dream of achieving, it just seemed impossible and overwhelming.
Myles was recommended to us and from the minute he walked through our door and heard our story he was so supportive and gave us so much confidence in him. The communication from start to end has been incredible and what we loved most about Myles is that his transaction were so smooth and prompt and before we knew it, we were signing contracts.
Not only did he sell both our properties in just 2 weeks but we got well over both asking price. We couldn’t belive what he had achieved, we still can’t belive it. He has really made our dreams move a reality and we can’t thank him enough.
Selling a property is one of the most important decision to make, put your trust in Myles!
We will continue to spread the news of our miracle man :) “
“Thank you just doesn’t seem enough. Words cannot express how you have helped myself and my children. Not only are you the most professional, kind and trustworthy agent that I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with, but you have also become a trusted friend and fantastic advisor, you constant contact throughout the sale and settlement of our home and your help and attention in finding a new home was over and above any exception.
You were always at the other end of the phone and your knowledge and skills for the housing industry along with how you treat everyone that comes into contact with you is incredibly attentive and genuine. Selling our home on the very first open and for more than we hoped for helped set the kids and I up for the future. I don’t know what I would have done without you. Again I can’t thank you enough, from the bottom of my heart and I can’t recommend you highly enough.
All the very best.”
"I am writing on that day that the sale of my property, (South Esplanade, Glenelg), was settled to thank you for a job well done. I was very impressed with Myles Pearce and the service he provided. He obviously has an excellent grasp of what is happening in the market and did a lot of research to come up with a realistic price. He listed the property within a few days of our initial conversation and conducted a number of open inspections. He quickly found a purchaser whose offer exceeded my initial expectation. Unfortunately that sale fell through, due to circumstances beyond his control, but Myles assured me that he would find a buyer. He received another offer shortly afterwards, which was actually higher than the first, and which proceeded quickly and with the minimum of fuss to completion.
Myles is a pleasure to deal with. He is honest and reliable and doesn’t make promises he can’t keep. He kept me informed at every stage of the process and his enormous experience in real-estate is very obvious. I would imagine that it would be as much of a pleasure to deal with him as a purchaser as it has been to engage him as a vendor.
I would have no hesitation in recommending his services to others.
Please pass on my thanks to Myles and all of your staff who assisted in the sale."
"We would like to record our appreciation and thanks for the work that you carried out in achieving the sale of our property Unit 1 42 Day Drive Pasadena.
We initially tried to sell the unit privately without success. As the result of our advertising we were contacted by another estate agent but were not impressed with their approach. By contrast when you contacted us we were confident that you could achieve a sale at an acceptable price.
You made your expenses and associated costs quite clear at the outset and these were unchanged.
Throughout the sale process you maintained close and continual contact by phone and email advising how we could achieve the best result. In this regard we benefited from your vast experience in real estate.
You became more of a friend than a paid agent.
We would readily recommend you to anybody who has a need for real estate services.
Thank you sincerely for your efficient work in effecting the sale of our property."
“My wife and I were looking for a real estate company to sell our house for us.
I “cold called” Peter F. Burns Real Estate and Myles Pearce returned my call. We arranged to meet him at the property later in the week. Myles arrived punctually at the agreed time. He was very well prepared, having conducted a review of the property, the recent sales in the local area and brought with him a wealth of knowledge and experience.
We discuss the various sales options available to us and discussed the pro and cons of each.
Myles’s comments were down to earth, practical and sensible. The price range he estimated for the sale of the house was slightly lower than our expectations, but at the end of the sale process they were very accurate.
Once Peter F. Burns were engaged by us, Myles undertook to maintain a high level of communication regarding all aspects of the pre- sale, advertising, viewing and selling of the property. He communicated to us on a daily basis, which was very gratifying as we lived interstate.
Myles worked very hard to secure the best price from the prospective purchaser. Without hesitation we would recommend him to our friends.”
