would definitely recommend Robin and were very happy with the whole experience. Jessica H -Toowong
Excellent service and superb agent. Well done Belle and well-done Robin. Garth K (Buyer) Pullenvale.
Both Robin and Martin are extremely engaging, have a wealth of knowledge and a pleasure to work with. Being the purchaser I wasn't expecting the input they were able to provide. To buy and settle with no issues in under 4 weeks has been phenomenal. Thanks for working with us as a team. Jerome G, Toowong
I do commend you on the information you have provided. You are the first real estate agent that has supplied a well thought out and useful package of information for the property - Matt G (Buyer enquiry)
Martin turned up at the door and stated he was interested in listing "mutual buildings". Martin and Robin were a good team. They explained the whole process clearly and timings and everything went according to plan.
Sale went through much quicker than we expected and for slightly more than we hoped for. Very professional
Robin was an excellent partner in the sale. Patricia M, Taringa
Robin's understanding of my marketing needs and her feel for the unique qualities of my property led to an outstandingly professional campaign which achieved solid results in very quick time with minimum fuss and stress. Garrett R, Toowong
Recently bought a house through Robin and Richard from Belle Property Toowong. The whole process was stress free. I received high level of service; from putting an offer, getting back to me very prompt. Polite and very easy to talk too. Thank you for your service. I highly recommend Robin and Richard from Belle Property Toowong. Kiet T, Chapel Hill
Robin was very professional in her dealings with us. She gave us a timetable to follow and guide us as we
prepare the house for inspections. She knew the area really well including bus routes and bus stops. When an offer was received, she did not push us to accept the offer when it was below our expectation. She gave us options if we didn’t want to accept the offer. We are very happy with Robin and her agent, Richard Crist and we are more than happy to recommend them to anyone considering selling or buying a property.
Emmy and Lily M, Chapel Hill
Real estate agents who contact me at 6pm in the evening are irritating - my recollection is that Belle haven't made cold calls, a big plus in my book. Best organised agent , most business like agency we contacted (prompt action, realistic appraisal of property value, best marketing plan.) Robin predicted pretty much how the sale would work out - no unwelcome surprises. Appreciate the work of Martin and our auctioneer - a great team. Peter R, St. Lucia
Robin was very professional in every respect and kept me fully informed during the sales process. Chris B, Indooroopilly
Robin McIlwain presented as an organised, professional and competent agent from the first meeting where
she was the agent for an open house property in the local area. She is an excellent listener and follows up on all details relating to what the seller is saying and checks that she has understood their requirements and wishes. She returned calls promptly and was always supportive and methodical in her attention to details.
She was a the "standout agent" when I began to meet with other local agents for an appraisal of my property.
Her depth of knowledge of the local market and years of experience shone through and gave me no doubt
that she would be the person to sell my house in the most thorough and capable way. Thanks once again Robin. Diane O - Taringa
Robin and Richard have been very accommodating with our requests. They were a good team...very helpful and friendly. They were not pushy like other agents. Maria and Emmanuel M, Indooroopilly
What a pleasure it was for us to have you as our agent! Your professionalism, your conscientiousness, your friendliness and gentleness were perfect for us. We want to say a huge thank you, especially after such a great result! We are also very grateful to Martin, Russell, the auctioneer and your office staff. David and Mary. Indooroopilly
