SELLING PROPERTY IN KINGSLEY HEIGHTS?
Here's why Steve and Tara are the real estate team to call!
Steve says: "The main difference we offer is the belief that real estate is more service than sales, with both vendors and buyers being comfortable in the knowledge that they are working with a thorough and professional team, for whom nothing being too much trouble".
So is there a secret to Steve and Tara’s real estate success? Not really. It’s all very simple, Steve says. “The harder we work, the luckier we get!”
Steve believes real estate is more about providing a service rather than sales, and that, if that service is provided well, and the process is followed then he guarantees the sale will definitely happen.
