I am very happy to recommend Paul Heron and the team at Belle. Paul is an expert communicator and was able to give us all the feedback we needed to feel comfortable during the sales process. He was very attentive and sensitive during what otherwise may have been a stressful time if not for his professionalism. He achieved an excellent price at auction despite it being a difficult market. We felt Paul went above and beyond our expectations in order to secure our deal. We could not have had more exposure and could not be happier. Thanks again Paul.

We’ve recently sold our Larrakeyah property with Paul and highly recommend him as an agent. We are very glad he has taken on the ownership and directorship of Belle Property Darwin as we believe he’s ‘one of a kind’ in Darwin. We‘ve known Paul for a number of years from simply running into him at opens around town. He has kept in contact for years, keeping us informed of the market and sales in our area. We approached him a number of times simply for advice also, even when we weren’t ready to sell.
We’ve had many other experiences with other agents regarding purchases, sales and rentals over the years, and when we decided to sell our Darwin property late last year, Paul was quite seriously the only person we would have entrusted with the job. We sold our house in a time frame and for a price that we were very happy with. He provided sound advice and always tried to present a number of options to consider when he thought appropriate. He is knowledgeable, honest, committed and was really a pleasure to deal with at all times. He has continued to keep in touch after settlement not only to ensure we are happy but also that the buyers have everything they need. Now that is service! Do yourself a favour, next time you are considering selling your house, contact Paul.

We were very pleased with the excellent level of service that Paul gave us in selling our house. He was honest in his feedback regarding our expectations and put forward ideas which we adopted to help get more people interested in our property. Even after the sale was fully settled he continued to happily assist us as we had moved interstate and had some outstanding items to rectify. We strongly recommend Paul to any prospective seller as a great agent to deal with.
I've known Paul for 4 years and during that time I have sold two properties with him. I have also purchased and sold 5 properties with other agents. In my experience the main difference between real estate agents is quite simple, in a buoyant market anybody can and does sell property. When the market changes half way through your selling campaign you need somebody who doesn't give up and keeps going to get your end result. Paul is that person. He is professional, thorough and easy to deal with.
We chose Paul to sell our property from quite a range of real estate agents in the Darwin region that we considered. We had initially met him onsite a several properties whilst looking to buy our next home. At that time he impressed us with his approachability, friendly and open manner. He is very professional, responds very quickly to requests for information. He impressed with his understanding of real estate and the property market general.
When it came time for us to sell our home we chose Paul as we wanted an agent who would do his best for us and work with us to get the best outcome for us. We wanted honest advice on how to present our house for sale and got positive and meaningful advice that helped us prepare our property in a way that it was attractive to would be purchasers.
We also wanted people looking to purchase our house to feel they could talk to the our agent, trust his integrity and professionalism, raise questions and get timely meaningful responses to those queries. We hoped would be purchasers would feel they could consider the property without feeling trapped, pressured or obligated... Paul worked closely with us, kept us informed of progress and guided us through the process of selling our home, respecting our views but ensuring we understood what would work to best achieve our objectives. In summary Paul delivered for us, selling the property within 14 days. We definitely made the right decision in choosing Paul and we are extremely grateful for his efforts on our behalf. Our expectations as to the sale were met at the highest level and we would not hesitate to recommend Paul to any other prospective seller or purchaser of a property.
From day one you made it your goal to sell our property and it was very evident that you are passionate about and know your business well and at the same time you provided a friendly service. Your attention to all the details, regular emails, and phone calls keeping us abreast of everything that was happening certainly took a lot of the pressure off us and we felt that you were a true partner in facilitating the sale of our property in a professional manner. It was obvious that you were working hard to get the best outcome for us without giving us false hopes. Your communication was top notch, you handled everything efficiently and professionally!
If you are looking for a knowledgeable and honest real estate agent with a keen understanding of the local market, I would highly recommend Paul Heron.
