    Hi Neil

    Dodgy old agent vs young new agent.

    Many years ago my wife and I purchased a block of land to build a new home. It cost $130k. However sudden serious health issues forced us change plans so 4 years after purchasing it we put it on the market for $340k.

    We placed the property with a well known (30 + years in the industry) agent. We heard nothing for a month until the agent contacted us to say we had the property well overpriced and there was no interest . He did say he had someone who was prepared to pay $200k. He also said he was duty bound to tell us it was another agent and mate if his.

    I rang the selling agent a few days latter pretending to be a buyer and he wouldn’t sell me the land and tried to direct me to other properties.

    I sacked the agent via mail the same day.

    Around 2 weeks later a young guy from a different agency contacted me saying he could sell the land.

    My response was: you bring me a signed contract and I will sign the listing agreement. I thought “ I won’t here from him again”.

    10 days later I get a call, “ I have 5 offers”. 3 of of offers were just below my asking price, I was at my price and one was $70k more than my price however it was subject to development approval for a 1 into 2 subdivision. So I signed the listing agreement and signed the contract at $340k being my asking price.

    I am approaching the time to interview 3 selected agents to sell my property.
    The interview techniques you have given me [a vulnerable geriatric] are invaluable.
    This is the fourth property that I will have sold in the last 18 years and each last time I followed your advice and was satisfied with the result. So thanks again for all you have done and keep up the good work. Regards Pat.

    Rings true, the last three places we sold (one our own and two parents places) were sold by younger agents.

    We never proposed a price or price range, they did. In each case we were very happy with what was achieved.

    Two out of the three were Jenman recommended
