To Whom It May Concern,
I first met Hayley Martin when I was looking for a home of my own to buy in Devonport. This process began while I was still living in New Zealand but moved over to Tasmania in December last year.
My initial thoughts were that I would find my new home quickly and be settled in no time and eager to put down roots. I was to find out it was not that easy. I had my list of what I wanted though nothing ever seemed quite right. I had one unfortunate experience which made me very wary when making that final decision.
I looked through many properties with several agents, including the property I am now living in. That was when I first met Hayley. She was a lady I found easy to deal with, quietly-spoken, well-mannered, and not pushy, or neglectful in giving me information. However, at the time I was still searching for that home that was suitable for me and filled most of the criteria. I was still unsure what area I wanted to live in. So I kept on viewing properties, not just in the Devonport area, but further afield as well. I was fast becoming disillusioned with the whole process, taking months and not just a few weeks.
One day, about a month after I had viewed this property with Hayley, she phoned me and asked if I had found what I was looking for, or was I still looking. I said ‘Still Looking!’ She then told me the owners of this property had reduced the price and maybe I would like to have another look.
This time round, I had a better idea of what I wanted and what was available. The price this time was more in line with my Budget, and I took more notice with the thought that maybe this was the one.
All this time Hayley would quietly let me look, while on hand to answer any questions, and also point out further benefits of living in this home. It had three important elements for me – quiet location, a deck and a view! This time I agreed with her.
She was able to provide everything I needed to know, as well as the process in signing up and payment. I have now been living here for six months, and enjoy calling it ‘home’.
Thank you, Hayley, for your help and follow-up.
I have no hesitation in recommending Hayley Martin as an agent when buying or selling a home. I trust her judgement, honesty, manner, and business acumen.
