it was our pleasure to meet the Chris Casey and Erin King
In an industry which has a few shady characters, it was our pleasure to meet the Chris Casey at Coastal Space when we started to make enquires about a unit on the Gold Coast.
Chris gave very generously of his time to assist our understanding of the relative benefits of the stock which was on the market at the time, explaining how each unit might be improved and the history of prices for which comparable units had changed hands.
Without fear or favour Chris provided his honest assessment of the benefits and shortfalls of each unit we inspected, without any pressure or persuasion. Whilst this may seem an unusual process to some vendors, it is critical to winning the trust of potential purchasers and in our case led to a purchase a year or so ahead of our original plans.
Our purchase was made at a time when vendors were adjusting their expectations in a declining market. We were interested in a number of units and unlike other agents, Chris was able to move his vendors to a reasonable market price which allowed us to proceed. The other agent really let his sale get away as he seemed less interested to coach his vendor to market. Making a market is part of the agents job and I feel Chris worked for every penny of his commission including many hours outside of normal trading hours. He reminds me of this each time we meet!
One final point worth noting, is that it was reassuring to do business with an agent who runs his business from & lives in the building. It’s in his interest to have happy buyers and sellers today and tomorrow.
I would highly recommend Chris of Coastal Space to both purchasers and vendors.
