Client Testimonials

To Whom It May Concern, Duane Hunter and his team are easily the best realtor’s I have worked with. They always made me feel like we were their top priority. Even though I knew Duane was busy, he would always take time with our questions and issues. Duane and his team were there 100% the whole time, looking out for our interests, ensuring a smooth negotiation, and helping us with last minute complications. Duane is very knowledgeable of the area and its different neighbourhoods and therefore I felt that he knew the market well and got me a great price for my property. After a strong campaign we had an exchange within a few weeks. Duane was very friendly and professional to work with. I appreciate your help, considerate guidance and patience throughout the process of selling my home. I hope to work with you again in the future and would happily refer you to anyone who is thinking of selling their home. Kind Regards,

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN It is with great pleasure that I recommend Duane Hunter from D S Hunter Real Estate to you today. I met Duane about eight months ago when he showed me through a few properties in Bayview. From the moment we met I could sense his genuine concern and eagerness to assist me in every possible way. Because of his gentle nature and obvious integrity, I decided to enlist him as the selling agent for my property in Elanora Heights. Over the course of the following months Duane helped me to prepare the property by recommending builders, painters and tradesmen to me in order to get the house in prime condition before listing. Nothing was too much trouble for Duane during this phase and there was no charge for his services. He remained in constant touch with me, checking on my progress but also checking on how I was coping and encouraging me through the difficulties. When the property became ready and I signed the listing agreement with him, Duane went into battle for me. He spent hours compiling the advertising to my liking and securing it at a good price. Everyone Duane enlists to help are high quality, highly skilled professionals. His cameraman is a genius and Duane covered his costs for me. He called prospective buyers on his database to put the wheels in motion and began opening the house on Saturday mornings. Our campaign began with a 2 week preview, then 5 weeks of newspaper and internet advertising. As my property is in the higher end of the Elanora market I was expecting a sale to probably take some time, however, I am pleased to say that Duane is close to securing a buyer for me already. Duane is an experienced negotiator and this is a skill you will definitely need once a buyer is found to ensure you the best possible price in today?s climate. Duane has gone over and above anything I could have imagined from a real estate agent. He has even helped me negotiate a very tricky situation involving my proposed new purchase. He has walked me step by step through what is a very emotional and testing time and he is always calm, considerate and positive. When you are selling, you really need an agent who believes in your property and who will exude that confidence to the prospective buyers. Duane is a master at this because it comes from his heart. He identifies all the very best attributes of a home and focuses on these. People warm to him and he is great at building relationships and trust on both sides. I could go on and on about my exceptional selling experience with Duane … but I suggest you just spend 30 minutes in his company and you will know that he is the one. Wishing you all the best in your journey of selling. Kind regards,

I was contacted by Duane Hunter some months ago, offering a “free appraisal”, should I be interested in selling. As I was contemplating same, I decided to take him up on the offer. He came to my home in Alexandra Cres Bayview, inspected my home and then asked me “how much I wanted for it?” To which I replied 10 million! Obviously the home was worth nothing like that. Having studied the market, I had a very concise idea of its current value. So I asked Duane…no what price can you achieve for me? His response was $10,000 away from my price. So we were on the same page. He listed the home and began a marketing campaign. Within a short time we had an interested party….Negotiations began, and a sale was put in place. What followed was most difficult…..A purchaser that insisted on pulling the price down further! Probably nothing new for a potential purchaser, and I was the hard “vendor, that would not give in”. That is Real Estate sales. However what transpired was a sale brought about by Duanes tenacity and ability to continue negotiations, with absolute determination! In what is currently “a difficult market”,a good result was achieved. I have no hesitation in a recommendation of Duanes ability and certainly his tenacious attitude.
