We found Paul and his whole team to be terriffic throughout the whole sales process. They were total professionals and were there for us. The friendliness and rapport we built with the team made the process run very smoothly. I would highly recommend Paul and his team to my family, friends and anyone considering selling their property.

We purchased the property at 171 McIlwraith Avenue, Norman Park. Thanks Frank - enjoyed the process immensely.

Frank was wonderful. He carefully guided us all the way through the whole process as we were "babes in the woods" having neither bought or sold a property for 25+ years. We can truefully say if it had not been for Frank's guidance and constant help with both the sale of our property and the purchase of our new home (in which he had no vested interest, except as a friend/agent) we never would have made it through! He was always available for help with the most mundane of our questions, found answers to any others we had if he didn't already have them. His knowledge of business, and the real estate market was exceptional! We interviewed 3 other agents, and were quite disappointed with their lack of enthusisasm and general attitude of malise. When you are selling any property, to have someone like Frank Gosdschan the most valuable asset you can have! Clone Frank Gosdschan!

Paul assisted us with the marketing and sale of our property in Coorparoo. Paul is a personable professional Agent who kept us updated through the entire process of selling our property. Due to Pauls impressive marketing style we managed to sell our property within one week of listing and achieved the price we were looking for. If you are looking for a professional, friendly honest Agent to list your property with we would recommend that you contact Paul Brinckman from Belle Property Bulimba.

Frank Gosdschan came highly recommended to us by Auctioneer Mark Frater, and upon meeting Frank, we
knew we had made the right decision. He was warm, friendly and genuine, easy to communicate our needs
to and came up with great suggestions on how to best market our home for sale.

Interestingly, in the lead up to selling our home, we had looked for a new home to buy for over a year. During
that time, we had come in contact with many other agents, the vast majority I wouldn't invite into my home.

It was refreshing to finally meet Frank, who showed enthusiasm and dedication from start to finish. He is a
reliable and honest gentlemen, and I wouldn't hesitate recommending him to my family and friends, knowing
that they would be receiving the benefit of a loyal agent.

We wish Frank Gosdschan well and thank him for all his hard work in achieving a great result for the sale of
our home.

Poppy, you did a fantastic job in assisting us in what were difficult circumstances for us. You kept us up-to-date and explained things clearly and consistently. You remained determined to get the best price possible for us, and were always friendly and professional. Many thanks again.

Peter McLaughlin

50 Coutts Street, Bulimba

Frank was excellent during every stage of the process from our first meeting at an open house inspection through auction and post-negotiations, finalising contracts, attending the hand over walk through and delivering sandwiches to us on the day we moved in. His integrity and professionalism throughout, and particularly when things did not go as he would have liked, were beyond reproach. We loved dealing with Frank. We trusted him and felt that we could be open in our communication (notwithstanding recent poor experiences with other agents) because even though he was acting for the vendors, he gave us a strong sense that he was focussed on reaching an agreed outcome based on the respective parties desires and interests. He lead the negotiation with great patience and skill. Frank is a warm person who put as at ease with his friendly and caring style. He is a cut above other agents with whom we have had extensive dealings over the 6 months prior to meeting Frank. He is a great advocate for Belle and for the suburb of Bulimba. He impressed on us the lifestyle that went with the home we were seeking and he has subsequently assisted us with settling into our new surrounds. He is a big part of the Bulimba village and he has made us feel very welcome. Frank did an excellent job considering he was acting on behalf of the vendors. His manner towards us was extremely professional, courteous and facilitative as purchasers and I would have no hesitation recommending him to any of our friends as an agent.

Joanne, I am writing to express my sincere thanks with regard to your efforts in selling my property. I appreciate your hard work in developing a strong advertisement campaign, I thank you for your perseverance and your ongoing encouragement. I think that had it not been for you eternal optimism, I would possibly have pulled the property off the market consequently, and failed to sell it. Again, thank you very much for efforts. I am very appreciative.

Shannon McCluskey

14 Nyletta Street, Coopers Plains

Joanne, I thought I would send you an update, we have now settled into our new home and are very happy. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for the hard work you did whilst our house was on the market. During the whole selling process you impressed us with your attention to detail , your marketing ability and your honest appraisals of every inspection and open house, you gave us the comfort that you were working really hard for us every day. You were prepared to give us your evenings and weekends in an effort to get us a good deal, it is rare to see such a great work ethic. We will definitely recommend you to others as a trustworthy and diligent real estate agent, we wish you all the best for your future and look forward to hearing from you regarding your career as a leading agent in Brisbane.

Jack and Patrica Mulcahy

3 Dunkeld Street, Acacia Ridge

Joanne, why did we choose to trial you and market through you? What do we say to our friends to sell or buy property? Well, the key points are her positive, pleasant attitude, her knowledge, not only of the area but where the market was and probabilities of where it was heading. On top of that was her integrity, tenacity and willingness to do that bit extra to secure the sale and have a fallback position until it went unconditional. My wife and I have dealt with quite a number of agents in our life, Joanne you are one of the very best.

R & M Rolley

12/228 Vulture Street, South Brisbane

Joanne, thank you for making the purchase of my apartment a stress free experience, you have been very helpful and it has been an absolute pleasure to deal with an honest and professional agent.

Mohamad Darbas

5/28 Villa Street, Annerley

Joanne, we are very impressed with the service that you provided us when you sold our unit at Villa St, Annerley, recently. Joanne really impressed us with the way she presented our marketing options and listened to our input. We found her to be always very well presented and professional, always approachable and contactable. She made us feel very comfortable and always provided us with detailed feedback after each open house inspection. We are eternally grateful for your help and understanding, much appreciated. We’re loving our new town house, and are happier than ever. If we know anyone, in the area looking to buy or sell, or our situation changes, we’ll definitely be in touch.

Catherine and Paul Owen

58 Balham Road, Archerfield

I just bought my first home through Joanne Krajewski.  I found her to be very professional and approachable.  It was a difficult process thanks to my lender and the tenants that were in the house prior to settlement, but Jo coordinated the necessary assistance and made the process easier for me and helped alleviate the stress.  I will highly recommend her to my family and friends now.  She will be the guest of honour at my house warming.

Cameron Bracken

23 Wakley Street, Acacia Ridge

Joanne recently sold my investment property and I wanted to express my gratitude and recognition of her professionalism, exceptional service and negotiating a great price. I was really impressed that Joanne sold my property in 4 days after I had had it listed with another agent previously for several months. Her real estate experience, marketing strategy and enthusiasm saw the property sold for a price that I was very satisfied with. Furthermore, there was a couple of glitches with the tenants moving out on time in line with settlement and she was able to find a place for them at very short notice so that everything ran smoothly. She well and truly over delivered in what was a stressful time and took all the pressure off our shoulders, I highly recommend Joanne Krajewski to my family and friends and to any one that is looking at selling or buying real estate. She is a honest and hard working agent and an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Rob Stuart

39 Hertford Street, Upper Mount Gravatt

I’m not one to write much about things, but just wanted to say that I was very happy  about the great job you did selling my home. After 47 years in the one house, it was really an emotional thing and you really understood and took extra care with me. It took me by surprise when you sold it so quickly and got me a real good price. You also were so helpful all the way through and in helping me buy my new home, with all the paperwork that I couldn’t understand. I would be happy to recommend you to anyone I know who is looking for an agent. So thanks again John.

We would like to share our enormous thanks and full recommendation of Jonathan Harper-Hill who recently sold our investment property in Greenslopes, Brisbane for a price that far surpassed our expectations. Being interstate, we chose him because of the time he invested in providing us with local sales research and data, his friendly, professional approach and honest appraisal of our home within the local market. Jonathan also stood out in his willingness to provide us with a detailed selling strategy and his genuine demeanour; other agents we spoke to were vague, unhelpful and rather 'smarmy'; we couldn't imagine them standing at our front door greeting potential buyers. In contrast, we had a very positive impression of Jonathan on first meeting him. Within 4 days of our property being on the market, Jonathan secured 3 offers on our house and we accepted one that blew us away! Aside from Jonathan's obvious negotiation experience is his impressive communicative approach, which ensured we were fully informed of every development that occurred with the sale of our house. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and we hugely appreciate his hard work and dedication to the successful sale of our property. We have no hesitation in recommending him to others wishing to sell their property through a genuine, trustworthy agent.

Gavain and Jacqui Browne

48 Hockings Street, Holland Park West

Paul was always confident about the sale which helped us, my partner especially, and not only got a sale at a price we were happy with he also got us a good buyer so it was plain sailing after we signed the contract, which was even more of a concern off our backs. We ended up being very happy which is what it's all about. Improvements? I'm not sure I can come up with any it was a very professional polished outfit.

Ian Wells

61 Mountain Street, Mount Gravatt

We purchased the property through Jonathan Harper-Hill and have subsequently sold the property through Jonathan. The support Jonathan provided through the purchasing and selling process was excellent. He went well and truly above and beyond and was particular helpful during the selling process as we lived in a different state. To the point that he even assisted us with removing some items from the house which we could not do due to living interstate. Excellent service all round and we highly recommend Jonathan Harper-Hill to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Mark and Renae Hurley

67 Elliott Street, Hawthorne

We have bought and sold many properties over the years but were very delighted to have worked with John Cassimatis in the successful auction of our house. He was very involved and approachable throughout the process and his explaining of the sale process and keeping us updated was excellent. His assessment of the market and sale strategy was excellent and were were delighted with the final result. I have no hesitation in
recommending him to friends who wish to sell their homes in the future.

Rob Cincotta

23 Collington Street, Mansfield

Thank you for your gift and your efforts during our purchase of 23 Collington St. You have been a pleasure to work with throughout the whole process. If we have friends selling, we won't hesitate to recommend you to them. All the best!

Raymond and Sisi

81 Sackville Street, Greenslopes

We are still in shock that things have gone through and that the sale is actually happening! I wasn't joking when I said we are your number one fans... a '6' at the front of our sale price has knocked our socks off.

Jacqui Ralph

Eva Street, Coorparoo

Dear Jonathan, John and I would like to thank you for your kind and very helpful manner in the selling and buying of our properties. Nothing was too much trouble, you were always available, thoughtful and helpful and it has been much appreciated. We shall certainly have no hesitation in recommending you to any of our friends who may be selling in the future.

Robin and John Leighton

266 Riding Road, Balmoral

We found Belle Property Bulimba fantastic. Before signing with Paul Brinckman we had listed our house for sale with another Real Estate Agency and had a terrible experience. The agents were unprofessional and rude, could not sell the house and told us to remove the house from the market as it would not sell. We then agreed to list our property with Paul Brinckman at Belle Property Bulimba and never looked back. When we signed with Belle, Paul guaranteed he would have a contract within 3 weeks, it only took him 2 weeks and then he had several backup contracts, just in case... We can't thank Paul, Jess and Christine enough, after such a bad experience with the previous agents our faith in the Real Estate industry was gone.. Belle Property Bulimba restored that faith and we would certainly recommend the team to anyone selling their property, they will achieve the sale with confidence and professionalism.

Madison Bailey

266 Riding Road, Balmoral (Laura)

We would like to highly acknowledge the painless, professional and exemplary process and service we experienced listing and selling our home with Paul, Jess and the rest of the team at Belle Bulimba. From the moment we met Paul we were treated with respect and professionalism. Having had previous experiences with real estate agents and services and coming into this service feeling let down and exhausted, the service we were provided with by Belle Bulimba was outstanding and relieving. We cannot express in words enough how thankful we were to have made the decision to list with Paul and his team and the success of them having a contract (which went straight through to settlement without issue) within 2 weeks only further speaks to this. We would highly recommend anyone requiring Real Estate services to meet with Paul Brinckman and to engage him and his team to work for you.

Laura Dodds

14 Tinaroo Street, Durack #2

Paul Brinckman's professionalism and experience in the housing market was evident at our first meeting. This gave me full confidence to engage him as the sales agent for my house. The sales process was activated swiftly with a 'for sale' sign at the property, internet advertising and 'open house' dates that all displayed Paul's attention to detail and exceeded my expectations. Paul was always contactable and available to answer any queries. He kept me well informed and up to date every step of the way. All in all the sale of my house was successful for all parties and I fully commend Paul Brinckman for this outcome. I am very confident to recommend Paul Brinckman as a property sales agent.

B Hanks

14 Tinaroo Street, Durack

Paul Brinckman delivered all aspects of his services in a highly professional manner and was a pleasure to deal with.

Ian Hanks

17 Albert Street, Camp Hill

The whole process was seamless and without stress - any questions I had were answered quickly. I have bought and sold in excess of 10 homes and this was by far the easiest, smoothest and most pleasant purchase I have made. The staff are AMAZING - so welcoming, professional and personable. The service they provide is superior to at least 3 other real estate offices in the area. The personal service is excellent - as your office grows larger, don't lose what you do best!

Annie Stonehouse

67 Elliott Street, Hawthorne

Dear John, Thank you very much for all your work on the sale of our home at 67 Elliott St. Your thoughtfulness and perseverance at ringing up people who had come through ensured we had the exposure that successfully ended up in the sale. We are both sincerely grateful.

Marg Cincotta

70 Mar Street, Holland Park

My expectation for Belle was extremely high; given my disappointment with my previous agent. I can honestly say that Belle and in particular; Jonathan, not only met, but exceeded my expectation. I say with conviction that I would highly recommend Jonathan and Belle in any opportunity that presents. Jonathan's professionalism, approach, and skill was a standout.

Lee-Anne List

85 Hertford Street, Upper Mount Gravatt

John was a pleasure to deal with. He was professional in his approach to the marketing and sale of our investment property. John was respectful and considerate to the tenants of the property during the sale process.

Rebecca and Graham Parry

77 Coutts Street, Bulimba

We contemplated not putting it (the house) on the market and offering to sell it to someone in the family. However John advertised it and within days we had our first offer (sight unseen!). John came up with a cost-effective marketing campaign and the buyers flowed in. John was patient, not pushy and we ended up accepting an offer well and truly above our expectations. We are over the moon, thanks John.

Judith Salter

3/169 Brisbane Street, Bulimba

Frank, who worked on the sale of our property and was the person that we had the most contact with, was absolutely fantastic. The service we received from him was brilliant. The weekly reports, regular feedback and ongoing updates made by Frank Gosdschan were fantastic and we really appreciated the time he took to make sure we kept in the loop of what was happening at all times.

Fiona Petrou

3/169 Brisbane Street, Bulimba

Paul's knowledge of the psychology of buyers and sellers made him a stand-out compared to the other agents that we spoke to. All of the information was provided up-front, and there were no additional costs that we weren't advised of that were advised of pop up during the campaign, which we really appreciated.

Fiona Petrou

91 Leybourne Street, Chelmer

I am delighted to write a testimonial regarding my experiences with Belle Property, Bulimba.  I have recently purchased a home in Bulimba and sold a property in Chelmer engaging in Belle Property expertise.  In moving into the Bulimba area, Christine Brinckman made the transition smooth, enjoyable and very professional. In selling my Chelmer property, I can't and won't fault anything. Christine Brinckman’s honesty, strong work ethic and communication skills delivered a better than expected result.  I wouldn't hesitate in highly recommending Christine Brinckman or the Belle Property team to anyone wanting the services of a real estate representative.

Mal Meninga

36 Pansy Street, Wynnum West

I marketed & sold my property through Christine Brinckman Belle Property in April 2013. I found her approach to be very warm and professional; regularly updating me with open house reports from prospective buyers, weekly reports on enquiries via the internet, and supplied me with a benchmarking report of sold houses in the area - all of which helped my understanding of activity in the current market and a price I would expect to obtain. I have every confidence in recommending Christine Brinckman to anyone looking to sell as she is very diligent and open about her discussions with buyers and is able to negotiate a transaction so that both parties have a happy outcome. I would definitely work with her again in the future.

Dear Christine and Paul, this letter is to thank both you and the whole team at Belle Property Bulimba for a successful and stress free campaign. Due to an interstate move, it was with great sadness that we had to sell our home. With the determination, expertise and most importantly the guidance that was offered, the experience of selling a much loved home became a whole lot easier. From the beginning of the campaign, right through to settlement, the service that Belle Property Bulimba provided had gone above and beyond anything we could have expected. We were constantly kept informed and updated of all progress with weekly reports and phone calls on all house inspections and offers. Reminders of upcoming inspections from open home, bank inspectors, and independent evaluations were also sent out in a timely manner. Selling a home is extremely stressful and Christine’s calm and confident manner took away all that stress. Her guidance before the commencements of open home was outstanding with help in all areas such as building and pest, pool inspections, legal matters and most importantly marketing and whether to sell by Auction or Private Treaty. We greatly respected both Christine’s and Paul’s ability to listen to us as clients and essentially make the whole experience a team effort and not one based on one sided opinions and expectations. Many thanks once again to the whole team at Belle Property Bulimba.

It has been a pleasure to work with Poppy Comino – Belle Property to sell our house, and we couldn't be happier with the price we got. I have known Poppy for about 4 years, since I first requested a valuation of our property. I have dealt with a number of estate agents over the years, and Poppy has qualities rarely found in the industry. I felt she was friendly, honest, realistic and patient with me. We had very specific requirements in finding an alternative residence, and so were not in a rush to sell. Poppy understood this and never harassed me, rather was happy to help as I asked for it. She promptly helped me with all my enquiries regarding market value of properties that I would find, going beyond the call of duty to assist me with negotiating contracts and strategic bidding at auctions. She never just threw houses at me to try and make the sale. Rather she waited until I was ready to approach her. Her advice was always professional based on hard evidence rather than sales tricks, which meant that I felt I could trust her. Poppy is a very warm and genuine person. She is stylish, fun, happy and considerate. Over the years we have formed a strong friendship. When finally we bought elsewhere and took our house to auction, Poppy ran the campaign for us. At all times I was so impressed with her tireless professionalism, attention to detail and can-do attitude. She knew how to make our house look its best, working with the professional photographer and copywriter to get the best assets for the advertisements. She married the right amount of marketing to the value of the house, to reach the right audience. The proof was in the pudding. We had over 81 separate buyers through the property which translated to strong bids on the day. I was very impressed that although we had become friends, I was her client first, so all dealings around the sale were always extremely professional. She provided regular feedback based on what the buyers were saying, not on supposition, so our expectations were realistic. I think its relevant to note that our final price was the upper figure of the valuation she had provided us with at the beginning of the campaign. I know that the buyers found her a pleasure to deal with too, quick to respond to their enquiries and assist them to ready for auction. All in all Poppy Comino is very polite and considerate, personable and professional, and very good at her job.

Belle Property has been handling the sale of my late father’s house in Yeronga West. Poppy Comino has been the responsible agent from the outset. Poppy Comino has been the responsible agent from the outset. The property was sold today at auction and returned a price well above expectation. This successful outcome was the culmination of an intensive marketing effort by Poppy over recent months involving many ‘home open’ events and personal representations. During this period, Poppy was meticulous in keeping me regularly briefed as to market feedback and also providing me with practical advice as to maximising the return from the property. Poppy’s conscientious approach was even more appreciated as I do not live in Brisbane and have never done so. Under those circumstances, I was totally dependent on the local agent to best progress my interests from afar. Poppy did so with aplomb, showing sound market knowledge, ready accessibility, unfailing assistance and consistent good humour. I am very pleased that I placed my trust in her. As a result, I have absolutely no hesitation in strongly recommending Poppy Comino for any real estate matter requiring these important attributes.

Mark Brownell

57 Beaudesert Road, Moorooka

We had previously witnessed how Jonathan worked to sell our neighbours house. He always seemed to be there with potential buyers and his quiet unassuming manner impressed us. We had previous contact with a couple of other agents but had not engaged anyone when Jonathan knocked on our door. He had been told by our neighbour of our plans to sell. He made an appointment to discuss our plans. At that first interview, we were blown away by his preparedness and professionalism. We had no hesitation in engaging him to sell our house. We had high expectations and he delivered. His advice and guidance throughout the campaign could not be faulted, but , best of all, he sold our house within three weeks for a realistic market price.
We could not be happier and would have no hesitation in recommending Jonathan Harper-Hill to anyone planning to sell their home.

Chris Sinclair

Coutts Street, Bulimba

Just a short note to say what a great job that you did in selling our home.It was by chance that we met you when we purchased our new home, it was as a result of delivering a very different sales process & refreshing experience to ourselves as purchasers. When we discussed who we would like to have sell our property, Poppy Comino's name was the only name that came to mind. We had seen the others operating when we were in the process of purchasing and none of them left us feeling excited about buying. Poppy we have no doubt that the Belle property group and their team are a special group of Real Estate professionals and you are are part of that. As purchasers and sellers we do not like to be pushed around, we like open communication, professionalism, honesty, a fresh approach , background on sale and current market (expertly laid out), a prudent negotiator who represents us & believes in the property being sold and keeping us informed. Poppy you have all those attributes. The marketing package we chose allowed us to present our property in the best manner in a down market, the brochures were top Quality, The photographers interpretation and plan displayed our property so well on the Internet, brochures and signage.Poppy the team that helped you, showing people to the front door, greeting, smiling made it fun for those looking to buy, we had 3 purchasers in less then 10 days and contracts exchanged very quickly. Judith and I would like to thank you for making the sales & purchasing process so easy and have no problem in referring you to future vendors or purchasers.

Jonathan Harper-Hill from Belle Property has recently sold our home. Jonathan helped us through every step of the process and we are delighted with the outcome. He clearly explained what he would do, and he delivered more than he promised. We originally tried selling with another agent which was dissapointing; we wish we had used Jonathan first, we fully recommend him.
