Great working with Nick and the team to secure a good outcome. We were never guessing what was happening as we were always kept well informed during the process.


I would like to thank Nick Ploubidis for the way in which he sold my apartment. Firstly, he provided me with information that was up to date about sales and prices in the area and followed that up by keeping me in the loop and giving feedback after open inspections. Nick also was very professional in his manner and knowledge before and during the sale. I would certainly recommend Nick as a sales agent if you were thinking of selling a property. I can only go by my experience which was extremely positive in all areas of the sale. I would definitely ask Nick to sell my next property.

Edgar Mayer, Adelaide

Thank you to your team for your tireless work and fabulous auctioneering. A work of art!

John and Mary Joanni, Evandale

Whilst we were a purchaser, you made the whole process easy. In our circumstances the paperwork and detail was important, and would have been much more complex without your ability to always find solutions. It was a contributing factor in our decision to buy - that you were so flexible and focused on supporting us as customer, and no doubt, making it easy for the vendor as well. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone looking for an enthusiastic and committed agent. We'll certainly pass on your details to others.

Anthony Francis, Pasadena

It feels great! A nice and painless process with the result we wanted. Feeling ecstatic! The marketing was excellent. It was nice and clean, nice and clear. No problems and it all looked great. Photos looked wonderful. It really couldn't have been better. Absolutely elated and the result went way beyond my expectations. Thank you to such a fabulous team and a fabulous result.

Annabel, Stepney

Thank you for selling my property! Throughout the process, you were both professional, committed, understanding, responsive and showed integrity – you did what you said you would. I know I was challenging to deal with at times, and I appreciate the way that you responded and managed me through the process. In the world that I work in, both of you demonstrated great leadership, so thank you :) Please let me know any Thursday that works for you both and I will bring in a bottle of wine to celebrate!
