Mark advised me to take my property to market, he and his team helped prepare my property for sale, they did a fabulous job in a very short amount of time, he showed the property to his exclusive list before the property was put to the wider market and he achieved a fabulous result for me that I was very happy with. I've always found Mark to be very professional in conducting his business.
Mark's property market knowledge and inherent professionalism are exceptional. But what sets him apart from his contemporaries is his natural skill in relationship building. He understands that real estate is often more than just a transaction, and this long-term view goes a long way towards trust and success.
Mark identified this property as being suitable for us at an early stage (before it was even "off-market") and was very patient with us as we worked our way towards deciding that it was the house we wanted at our own pace. I feel he was fair in the price negotiations and we're very happy that we've found the best place for us, after a very long search!
Mark came recommended by my neighbor who sold her adjacent unit through Mark. I set Mark a tall order. I needed to sell my investment unit at a good price, during a slump in the market, whilst abroad, and within 2 months prior to the end of the financial year. The pressure was further on as we lost two weeks when my tenant vacated. However, impressively in under a fortnight from the first viewing Mark had found a buyer and we had signed a contract. Mark kept me regularly updated of progress, gave me good recommendations for conveyancing and styling and had great local knowledge. I could not be happier with Mark and the Belle team.
A top notch agent from start to finish who goes above and beyond. Clearly defined campaign which was executed brilliantly with a result that suprised expectations. Couldnt recommend him highly enough.
I felt that Mark and his team were, above all, honest with me. Agents have a difficult task to keep both buyers and sellers interested and engaged, and Mark and his team did a great job of this. I have always found some agents can come off as dishonest or manipulative. Mark was not like this at all. I also found that he and his team were excellent communicators and kept me appraised of what was going on at all times. They were helpful and courteous.
I have witnessed both sides of Mark Foy. Once as a buyer (he was the agent of a property I purchased in 2014), and again as a vendor when he was the agent for the same property, four years later.
When I was the buyer, Mark secured a sale for the vendor that set a record for that sized apartment in the complex I purchased into. Four years later, Mark secured a sale for me at a good price in a spooked market and with auction clearance rates falling to 52%. It wasn't an easy sale, he was tested by tricky buyers and he came through with a price resulting in a 44% capital gain for me as the vendor. A good result.
After he ran a strong marketing campaign, he advised we should cancel the auction due to not securing committed buyers and instead advised we should put a price on the apartment and list it for sale. Within a week he had secured a good buyer and the sale. Where Mark truly shined brightest was in negotiating the final price.
I rejected the buyers offer (our only buyer), and the buyer indicated he wouldn't raise his offer. In a bold move, Mark called his bluff. He truly understood the buyer and sensed he was keen. I was worried and was reconsidering that I may have to accept a lower price when Mark called me back to inform me that he had managed to get an additional $66K from the buyer, and in the procee secured an immediate sale.
The extra $66K effectively paid for the commission on the sale price of $2.66m.
I would enthusiastically recommend Mark as an excellent agent, particularly for any vendor looking to secure the best possible price.
