Unfortunately no assistance
No assistance was provided by Agent select with no communication occurring with them to say what they could provide .
Unfortunately the agent [Name Removed] of First National Real estate, whom Agent Select recommended appeared to be more interested in meeting the needs of the buyer and that of his own commission then serving the best interests of the vendor. He kept stating that he had confidence the house would sell at a decent price.
The official bank valuation being $1750,000.00 a month ago. A buyer who found out about the propert...y through the next door neighbour offered $1765,000.00 with the offer needing to be accepted in a short time frame . [Name Removed] kept on saying he wouldn't be surprised " if it reached $1800,000 or $2 mil " he believed that he had a lot of interested buyers. On the day of the auction he said buyers had stopped bidding but he thought they may go higher if I dropped the reserve to $1710,000 only for the property not to attract any other bids beyond this amount effectively with me losing $65,000 . Whilst I didn't expect him to know the thoughts of the buyers on this occasion his reading of the bidders was "off " . Or alternatively in hindsight his projected sale cost should not have started so low with him providing buyers with the expectation the property would sell at a lower level than its value expected especially in the current market. . Cleary [Name removed] wanted to get the property sold to get his commission rather than advise me to let it pass in . I am disappointed in the result and in trusting him. On different occasions he would also point out the property's perceived faults rather then its highlights. Villas in the area have sold at a higher price.
Review collected in partnership with Agent Select
this came through on my email for a valuation on our property, as I do not have a mobile the process would not give me the answer, not everyone has a mobile or wants one, I was curious to know what the property is worth
Nice enough consultant but Agent Select has done nothing to add value to the sale of our house
The inclusion of Agent Select in the process of selling our property has just confused matters and has added no value to the sale of our house. Rather than rely on a statistical-based opinion from Agent Select I recommend interviewing agents yourself and choosing them based on your own interaction with the agent.

Elaborate Service To Obtain A Spotters Fee From Listing Agent
This service experience was poor. The service claims to 'help you compare' 'carefully selected' real estate agents and their fee structure so you can make an informed decision about which real estate agent to select when selling your property.
Agent Select, in this instance, did nothing more than give me phone numbers to call 'best performing?' agents, so totally pointless offer, I can do that using the yellow pages or the Internet.
Not all Agent Select 'best performing' agents provided me with their complete information so I was no be...tter off being 'informed'. One of their agents never called back, one of their agents provided me with another of their clients information (so not a good start), cant help question the claim of 'best performing'. Agent Select promised to provide me with an 'Agent Comparison Report - allowing you to compare each Agent's commission, marketing costs and credentials.', and I am still waiting for this promise to be delivered which is the main focus of the so called service to me. I am not persuaded that Agent Select delivers on their 'well polished' web site promises and is really just a (deserving or undeserving?) disguise to become involved in your property sale to obtain a spotters/referral fees from a listing agent, (Ultimately the agent is going to pass this fee on to you anyway in their fee structure).
