I was fortunate to buy and sell after eight years the same property with Brendan Philp, Brendan is the most professional and genuine real estate agent you could ever have working for you as either a buyer or a seller. His friendly, open, component, professional and honest style is second to none. At a time when you are buying or selling a significant asset like real estate Brendan is the the best person to have working for you. At a difficult time Brendan uses all his knowledge and experience to make everything happen the best way possible for both buyer and seller.
Brendan and Lindsay were very good to deal with. They made the whole process so streamline and they were very helpful. They guided me through the whole process and were flexible. Nothing was too hard and they were willing to show me through the house when it suited me. I would highly recommend them if you are looking to buy or sell.
When it came to putting our family home on the market and find an agent to display our home in the very best way - we are so pleased we chose Brendan & Lindsay from Abode to do the job. From the initial meeting right through to settlement day, the correspondence & attention to detail has been second to none.
When first time we meet with Brendan Philp to estimate our house for sale, Brendan was very professional and he gave us true advice on the market and on what to expect. We had a clear idea where we were heading to and what to expect from the market. He is very knowledgeable of the real estate market and knows very well his geographical area. In less then 2 weeks our house was sold. He is a great agent, professional and trustworthy and I will recommend him to every seller who want true and sincere advice about their property. I will definitely work with him again.
Sold our place in five days, very helpful with a nice personal touch, we would recommend Brendan to anyone.
We first come across Brendan at an open inspection in Woody Point a few years ago while looking for a property for my in-laws. We found him very approachable and courteous. We decided to sell with Brendan and his team and glad we did. Brendan and Lindsay did a fantastic job at marketing the property, following up leads, keeping us updated and knows the region inside and out, which is very helpful. If we were to sell another property in the Moreton Bay region, we would 100% be using Brendan again. Great result.
We have been totally impressed with the service provided by Abode. We would like to mention that the job done by Lindsay was wonderful and we thank him very much.
Both Brendan and Lindsay have been exceptional in their approach to helping find our new home. They were friendly, professional, and incredibly diligent in their attention to detail. They had a bank of service providers that they recommended, and those services were excellent too. All in all, they have appeared to me, to have an provided an outstanding service.
Brendan and Lindsay were very professional and made themselves available to assist even when it was out of hours. We would recommend Abode to anyone about to sell their home.
Brendan and Lindsay were knowledgeable, accommodating, very easy to deal with, and we had our property sold within one month of listing with them. We highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell a property. Thanks for making the whole process so easy gentleman.
Brendan and his team are very genuine and caring towards both sellers and prspective buyers. They also do a great job clearly explaining the process and keeping us up to speed with all that is happening in relation to the selling of our home. I strongly recommend these guys.
I found Lindsay and Brandon to be very approachable and helpful with the purchase of my Unit.
We have found Brendan Philip, Abode Real Estate to be very co-operative, professional and down to earth. Brendan's ability to evaluate the property price of our 2 properties was spot on. We have used him twice now and would not hesitate to recommend anyone to him. Both our properties were sold in a very short period of time. Brendan, Lindsay and Staff were a pleasure to deal with.
Brendan is great to work with, organised and professional. It's been a pleasure doing business.
Great knowledge of the local area, kept me up to date continually on progress of my house sale, listened and understood my position. Brendan and Lindsay are a great team, completely professional, likeable and filled me with confidence that I had made the right choice of agents. My house sold quickly and at a price I was happy with. Highly recommend them.
Brendan was very straight forward, no fake promises. Quick sale with no issues. Great communication. Would recommend.
Thank you Brendan and Lindsay. We appreciated your consistently prompt, courteous and informative communication.
Very obliging, punctual and helped us every step of the way right up to the time of settlement.
Communicated wither efficiently with the sellers for us when required.
We were up from Melbourne looking for a property on the spur of the moment.
Real Estate Agents were closed on the Sunday, but we saw a few properties we liked. Brendan was the only one that called us back out of hours, on his only day off. We were very appreciative and the communication between us, Brendan and Lindsay was incredible.
We got to look at the property just before we were ready to fly out of Brisbane and we purchased it. Thank you guys.
You are a real credit to this Industry and we would not hesitate to come back to you first, if we want to purchase again or sell.
We definitely highly recommend anyone looking for an agent to use Brendan and Lindsay. You made this a very pleasant and easy experience and went out of your way to help us, as a buyer.
We thank you again. Paul and Janie
I would highly recommend Brendan and his team for anyone wanting a hassle free selling experience. Brendan came to the initial meeting to sell my house enthusiastic, well prepared and very knowledgeable on the current market. Every interaction I had with him and his team after that was the same. He proposed an easy, efficient and effective sale process, arranged the photographs and marketing, gave me good and thoughtful advice on finishing the house. Awesome and professional from start to finish!
Communication is paramount in any successful business so it
was no surprise to receive it in spades from Both Brendan & Lindsay. We received regular updates with all our potential buyers. The guys were so professional & market aware & were very receptive to our ideas it mitigated much of the stress normally associated with selling your home. They sold our house & found a
Fantastic property for us to purchase in our downingsizing process. Make the team from Abode your first call if you are selling
Brendan came recommended to us and lived up to our expectations. Knowledgeable and realistic, and honest in his advice as to what to expect, with no pressure!
It's been a pleasure doing business with both you and Lindsay. Many thanks!
Brendan and his team are amazing. Nothing is ever too much and they work hard to meet the needs of their client. Thanks Guys.
Just want to say a huge thank you to Brendan & Lindsay. They made the selling of our house such an easy process.
Would totally recommend Adobe Properties.
very happy with Brendan and the team, they delivery and come through, no lies, honest up front
That was "F-A-A-S-T" was our reaction when we were presented with a Offer on our home day 1 of listing. We had an inspection within 2 hours of hitting the Web and we accepted a Contract soon after that.
Brendan & Lindsay's busy behind the scenes networking with potential purchasers helped towards this successful result & price. Their professionalism, excellent in office procedures all the way to excellent photography inclusive in their no cost marketing campaign & lower charge commission can't be beaten.
Highly recommend Abode Real Estate to others, as they were to us through others.
Our family had the sad task of selling our much loved family home for our mum. Lindsay's and Brendan's timely advice and encouragement was greatly appreciated and we were able to achieve a trouble- free sale within a very short period of time. We would highly recommend them to anybody looking to sell their home and are very grateful to them for their understanding and assistance throughout the whole process. A big ' thank you' to you both from a very appreciative family.
Brendan is a very genuine and straightforward. He always kept me in the loop, was always contactable and was great at relaying information between myself and the vendor. I wouldn't hesitate to thoroughly recommend Brendan to anyone looking to sell or purchase a property.
This agency would receive recommendation from us based on their professional dealings with our purchase. Their local knowledge and current market assessments were backed up with experience and attention to detail. Both their office & personal presentation is to be commended. We appreciated their availability of contact, follow up of any concerns and provision of regular updates. A fuss free client- focused agency that would be used again.
I have bought and sold a few houses & the experience hasn’t always been pleasant. I didn’t have a very high opinion of Real Estate Agents until I met Brendan & Lindsay. Professional and empathetic, and overall just great blokes! Given that I live a fair distance from the property I was selling, nothing was any trouble for them when I needed some assistance. They exceeded my expectations & I’d highly recommend them to anyone looking at selling. I wish there was more agents like them.
I cant recommend Brendan & Lindsay enough. My elderly Mother was making her first house purchase in 60 years and in all their dealings with her they were professional, patient and respectful, and all advice was informative. Any questions or emails were dealt with in a courteous & prompt manner. Lindsay especially has been extremely helpful throughout the whole process.
We would like to thank and recommend Brendan and Lindsay of Abode for the Professional and smooth sale of my Wife's Dream Home. Due to a career move, we had to move the house on of which was made easy and painless with the help of Abode.
We could not thank you enough for the final sale of our wonderful home. Communication on the sale was quick and clear particularly when you are some 6000km away.
We hope the new owners enjoyed it as much as we did in the short time we lived there.
Right from when we met Brendan Philp we knew that we had picked the right agent to sell our home of 25 years. Brendan was enthusiastic but didn't pressure us in any way. He praised the presentation of our home which gave us great confidence in getting a quick sale. He also had a good knowledge of our area. Brendan was punctual for inspections, always contactable and gave us great feedback. Thank you Brendan for making the sale of our property a non stressful time, thus giving us the freedom to make the transition to our retirement property as smooth as possible. I would not hesitate to recommend Brendan and all the team from Abode Properties. They have your interest at heart.
Thank you for all your help on our purchase,Lindsay and Brendan have been fantastic,great guys that are very helpful,couldn’t ask for more,such a smooth fast transaction, thank you both.
Brendan and Lindsey made selling my late parents home so easy. It was a very emotional sale, they understood our situation and made everything so seemless. We got a fantastic price, a street record in fact. And so quickly. Communication was exceptional. I would highly recommend Abode Properties and will use them again if I have the need.
Brendan was extremely helpful and welcoming from the get go and made the negotiating process easy and stress free. I would highly recommend Brendan, Lindsay and Abode Properties to anyone looking to purchase or sell a property on the Peninsula.
Brendan and Lindsay are friendly and genuine. Kept us well and truly in the loop and advised us well. Very much a team effort. Thanks for everything.
When you decide to sell your home it is an emotional, financial and stressful time. So it is imperative you engage an agent who demonstrates certain qualities. Abode Properties are a small team but an effective team that works cohesively. During our listing and selling process they have shown commitment, continuity and open communication all vital to a smooth transition. One of the things I found encouraging was their enthusiasm and consistent customer service. If you are looking for an agent who will work for its client just that little bit harder Brendan and Lindsay are quite possibly the agents for you. I would have no problems in recommending Abode to prospective sellers and buyers. Oh and they are just a little bit classier than your average agency.
Fantastic quick and easy sale. Well done.
We picked Brendan because he was the face on the sign and also there at every open house, he is also very approachable to deal with. I can not fault the job that Brendan has done for use.
Brendan and Lindsay were both very professional and efficient at all times. They made all the attempts to keep me updated from the first step and was flexible to achieve the best outcome for both parties. Would definitely recommend both!
Brendan and Lindsay have made our purchase very easy. They have offered every assistance to us. Being new to the area, they have offered some great recommendations for services. When a slight issue came up with the sale (our fault), Brendan was again, very helpful.
Could not recommend Brendan and Lindsay enough!!
I was under allot of pressure with having to put my father in a nursing home and having the huge task of selling his home and contents. Brendan and Lindsay were there every step of the way to get the house sold as soon as possible to pay holding fee to home but made sure they got the best possible price for my dad. I sent emails and text messages when there were things i didnt understand but they were quick to get back to me with answers and support. I cant thank them enough for taking some of the pressure off me. Great people.
We've sold a number of properties on the Peninsula, and can honestly say that Brendan and his team are by far the best agents we've dealt with in our 12+ years here.
During the proposal process, Brendan came prepared with extensive market knowledge and an accurate appraisal of our property's value. His flat commission structure was VERY competitive, and wasn't asking for any ridiculous "money grabs" like $250 for a sign or $600 for photos or whatever. We knew how much it was going to cost us to sell our home the minute we looked at the paperwork, regardless of how long it took (which was a very short time, as it turned out!). He understood the online aspect of selling houses, and tailored our online presence into a very professional package (without charging us for the effort).
Once the sign went up, Brendan personally attended the open houses and followed up the leads in the days that followed (which ultimately resulted in the sale of our home). Brendan was in constant contact throughout the process, and went above and beyond on a number of occasions to help secure our sale.
Ultimately, if you want an agent that is honest, upfront, affordable, and committed to getting you top dollar for your property then Brendan is the one for you. I would recommend him to anyone.
Thank you Brendan for selling our house
In Woody Point
You Sir are a true professional
Your professionalism, enthusiasm has resulted in a sale that obtained a price that you predicted
Your attention to detail and your marketing was beyond expectation I,myself being a former real estate principal must say with your honesty and integrity the result you obtained for us a was impressive
Any one considering selling property would be well advised to engage your services
Thank you Brendan for a job well done
Gordon & Sharron baillie
Brendan took on my listing after wasting a month with another local agent.
He quickly found a number of qualified buyers and sold the property within two weeks. I called him, he turned up an hour later and he demonstrated that same intensity throughout the listing. Helpful, professional, energetic and trustworthy. Don't waste your time with anyone else in the Redcliffe area.
Would highly recommend Abode Properties the staff were very knowledgeable about the current real estate market. Brendan and the staff were reliable, friendly and caring when it came to buying my property.
Brendan helped us purchase our dream home. To have this place we had to sell our home. With Brendan as our agent, we had a contract on our place within a week. Brendan is down to earth, not pushy, was always available to answer any questions and made the process of selling our place and buying our dream home supper easy. Thanks
Brendan handled the sale of my property at Deception Bay with complete professionalism. From the time of appraisal until the time of sale completion, Brendan was always only a phone call away. Selling a house can be an emotional time for any home owner and throughout my sale Brendan handled the inspections and negotiations with care and personalisation. I didn't just feel like I was another commission or customer for Abode, I felt like they genuinely wanted the best for my family and wanted to achieve what my property was worth. I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome of our sale and I'm so thankful that I followed the professional advice of Brendan.
Moving out of a home is a difficult process especially when you haven't found your next castle. Brendan also assisted me with this process and I'm extremely looking forward to making my new house, my new home. Couldn't have done this process with as little stress as possible without him. I'll forever be grateful and will definitely be loyal to Brendan with any of my real estate needs in the future.
We started our journey to sell our house, by contacting four local real-estate agents. The purpose of this was to get a gauge, on current market trends, finishing touches, time/season to sell, presentation, communication and ability to listen. Abode Properties were the standout performers and so began our journey to sell.
During the sale process (Auction), Brendan and the team were fantastic to deal with, they kept everything simple and were always fast to respond to any queries. On Auction day, things didn't quite go as anticipated, however Brendan and the team, continued their high-level engagement to both buyer and seller, and not long after, we sold our house.
Great communication skills and very positive outlook is why i would recommend Brendan and Lindsay.
You wont be disappointed.
Thanks Brendon an Lindsay for making the purchase easy and transparent. Really appreciate and look forward to deal with you again.
Brendan and Lindsay make a great team! Not only did they sell my house within 2 days of listing, their communication was excellent and always professional. They kept me in the loop at all stages and gave great advice about selling and presenting the property. And achieved a fantastic result!!! I highly recommend Brendan and Lindsay.
In May 2018, Abode Properties helped us find our new home in Woody Point. Following sign-off of the contract, there has been a need to revisit the property for third party inspections, to take on-site measurements and to negotiate with the seller on various matters. Abode Properties has facilitated all accesses to the property and communications with the seller, and we have been very happy with the post-sale services provided by Abode Properties.
Great team who communicate extremely well and navigate what is currently a tricky post-contract market with more professionalism and effort than any other agent I've worked with - highly recommend!
Lindsay and Brendan provided a remarkable service selling my home. Both agents had my best interest in mind and worked hard to secure a quick sale. The advice they gave me was invaluable in obtaining the best price possible. They are passionate about their industry and an asset to anyone selling property.
I have no hesitation in recommending Brendan and his team from Abode Properties. They have worked tirelessly in assisting me in the sale of my property. Very professional, pleasant and accommodating, with great local knowledge, they kept me informed with regular communications during the whole process. They have been a pleasure to deal with. Without a doubt, Brendan has been one of my best property agents. I would certainly use them again and highly recommend them.
Brendan and Lindsay were great agents to work with to sell our home. They had a buyer within days and negotiated the price that we were hoping to receive for our house. .We could not fault their communication skills , they kept in touch regularly and were more than willing to discuss any concerns we had regarding the sale. We highly recommend them to anyone who is thinking of choosing an agent.
Lindsay and Brendan were great to deal with, very helpful and easy-going.
We found both Brendan and Lindsay to be very accommodating, honest and helpful during the process of purchasing this property. Whenever we required any further information, Lindsay made sure we had answers to our questions within a couple of hours which is a huge PLUS in situations which could potentially be quite stressful. Thank you Brendan and Lindsay from Abode.
I had the pleasure of dealing with Lindsay and Brendan from Abode in connection with a recent investment property purchase in the Moreton Bay region.
They were courteous, professional, and, most importantly from my point of view, displayed a high level of integrity at all times. Communication was transparent and prompt, and they are straight down the line types with no agendas or games coming into the process.
Their local market knowledge is outstanding - I know this because during the process they drove a very savvy and informed campaign for their clients, who I'm sure are very satisfied. Their campaign was not based on "sales spin" or "pressure tactics" but rather informed communication based on a confident, intimate understanding of the Redcliffe and surrounding area markets.
I have no hesitation recommending them from the perspective of a purchaser, and while I plan to hold our property long term, I would definitely use them if circumstances changed and we needed to sell.
Brendan was great to deal with. He had a contract ready for us on a public holiday and was exceptional with communication throughout the process
What a great team, words can not describe how happy we are about our time working with Brendan and the Abode team. From start to finish, communications with the Brendan were fantastic, could not ask for more out of them. We were allways kept in the loop for things that were required and such and felt like we were in good hands even as the buying party. When the time comes for us to sell one of our property's, we will look forward to dealing with Brendan and his team again. A+++
Brendan was great to deal with. Very professional and very prompt with any enquires we had.
We have dealt with Brendon on several occasions over the past 10 years. Brendon has achieved street records on all occasions. He displays professionalism and is a motivated agent. His negotiation skills are also outstanding at achieving aligned goals and customer expectations.
I have no hesitation on recommending Brendon and his team as our agent of choice. Keep up the great and look forward to further dealings. We can’t thank you enough for all your hard work. Cheers.
The team at Abode properties provided us exceptional service.
They went above and beyond to ensure our purchase went smoothly.
They are very courteous and prompt.
They were a pleasure to deal with and I highly recommend them.
Brendan & Lindsay are always contactable & can explain the selling process well, as this is my first real estate sale experience. They took me through the process with minimal fuss, clear explanation and achieved a good result.
We are very happy with Brendan, and would recommend him to anyone selling their house.
I recommend Brendan, he greatly assisted get our contract through during some challenging issues.
I have found Lindsay Deagon to be professional and efficient in his dealings. The experience and integrity he has demonstrated, instilled great confidence in purchasing through him. I would not hesitate as a seller, to employ Lindsay’s services and would confidently recommend him.
Brendan and his team did a good job. Communication was open and direct. The team achieved the seller’s outcome. We would not hesitate to work with them again and would recommend to anyone looking to hire an agent.
We have sold with Brendan before and also purchased a home through him, so when we decided to sell he was our first choice and we haven't regretted it, Brendan and Lindsay make a great selling team, they work well together and compliment each other as a sales team and we would and have recommended him to people we know, great work guys. 5 star treatment without a doubt.
Great Agent, excellent knowledge of local area, very friendly, kept us in the loop all the way.
From the first meeting with Brendan from Abode Properties, we knew he was the right agent for the sale of our property. Brendan's understanding of our requirements, understanding of the current market and personable manner meant we would be getting the best service, for not only the sale for ourselves, but also the prospective purchasers looking at our property.
If you are looking to sell your property, you would be well advised to speak to the team at Abode Properties, you will not find a more personalised and professional team helping you.
Thankyou Brendon, Lindsay and Deb from Abode Properties for the excellent work they have done selling our house. It was a pleasure to do business with you and we would highly recommend you to others. Thanks Terry and Michelle Yates.
I am glad I contacted Abode Properties. Brendan and his team where fantastic,they know the market and kept us up to date with every thing.They sold our house for a better price than we thought and in a short time. They are a GREAT small local business . Highly recommend .
Abode real state (Brendan ) was very helpful and clear on the market and had great consideration to my tenants while selling my property .I would recommend anyone selling there property or buying a property to give them a call . Best part was customer service and communication.
Brendan was a pleasure to deal with from our first meeting at an open home. He took us through every step of buying our first home and was thoughtful, knowledgeable and very easy to communicate with and was always available when we needed him.
Thanks to Brendan & Lindsay from Abode properties we will be moving into our very own version of a 'dream home'. Both gentleman have been fantastic and very patient with us in our search encouraging us to view many properties before we found the one. Communication was awesome and quick, both Brendan & Lindsay are complete professionals and two genuine nice guys in the business :)
Selling up and moving house, as well as moving country, is a daunting experience for anyone. Right from the outset Brendan was approachable and professional and we trusted him instinctively to look after us and the sale of our home. He is knowledgeable, focussed, easy to talk to and his enthusiasm is infectious. He even got us excited about putting our home up for sale! We love your work Brendan, thanks for selling our home and making it such an easy process. Also to Lindsay for doing all the running around after us and making us feel that nothing was ever too much trouble. We totally recommend Brendan and the Abode Team!
Brendan has been an absolute pleasure to deal with! He was extremely responsive during the negotiation process and has ensured the whole purchase has gone smoothly. Thank you to the Abode team.
Having approached Abode after a recommendation from a friend, my wife and I are more than pleased with the result. Brendan and Lindsay are absolute professionals while maintaining a grounded down to earth approach. I felt well informed throughout the whole process and would have no hesitation in using their services again.
It was a pleasure dealing with Brendan and Lindsay. Both true professionals. All aspects of sale, from initial telephone conversation, first meeting, listing the property, negotiating the contract and assisting in effortless transition to new owners, were dealt with in an extremely professional manner.
Over the years we have dealt with many agents, but have never been more satisfied with the whole experience. We would highly recommend them to anybody.
We couldn't be happier with the service we received from Brendan and Lindsay. Their communication was excellent keeping us up to date with everything that was going on as well as dealing with our rental agent.
Thank you so much, we will definitely be in touch in the future should we be buying or selling.
Brendan was a pleasure to deal with, He Answered all our questions with honesty and went out of his way with all request that we had. Would highly recommend using Brendan for his knowledge and skill set in the real estate game. Hard to find someone who has a genuine personal interest in yourself and not just chasing another 'Sale' in this Real estate world... well done and thank you.
I would like to recommend Brendan Philp and his team for an excellent result... It was very timely, and well presented in web & newspaper advertising. His office works like a team and you feel everyone is doIng their best on your behalf, our sincere thanks to everyone! The Abode commission & sales charges were very realistic and excellent value for money.
It's been a pleasure working with Lindsay and Brendan. They really know the area, they gave us precious advices and mostly they helped us through every step of our purchase. By being our first home, we really needed some guidance, and they friendly assisted us and kept us informed throughout the entire process. Their approach is honest and they promptly addressed all our requests. We highly recommend Abode RE.
Sold my house in less than a week for more than what I expected. It's not just Brendan but the whole team is great.
Brendan and his amazing team worked tirelessly to pull my sale together. Above and beyond the call of duty.
I can never thank them enough.
I can appreciate that with a (very) motivated seller, rental tenants who needed to be present for any entry (re: the pets) and multiple pre-purchase inspections to accommodate that Lindsay had a lot of balls to keep in the air, however whenever I called he was always friendly and made it seem like nothing was too much trouble (even though I know there were definitely challenges). He tried his best to accommodate our preferred timeframes and leveraged his positive relationship with the tenants to gain quick access for our contractors, which was so appreciated and expedited the process for the seller.
Another nice touch was that he text me a photo of the "sold" sign when he went to put it up - a seemingly small gesture but it had a big impact, he obviously realised what an exciting moment that was for our family and wanted to share it. He has also maintained the relationship past signing day checking in to see if we have any questions etc.
Great service from Brendan and Lindsay. Professional and a great result with my sale. I can't recommend them enough.
Lindsay was very prompt and efficient in every aspect with the process of my recent property purchase. Buying a property is just as stressful as selling but Lindsay was always contactable and always went above & beyond to provide the answers to my queries. His calm demeanor and approach to any issues helped keep myself "the purchaser" calm. Thank you Abode Properties for turning my dream home into a reality!
Lindsay has the right balance between being professional, personable and trustworthy. We valued his market knowledge, integrity and fairness.
He worked well above and beyond what one would expect of an agent. We could not recommend he or Abode highly enough.
We couldn't recommend Brendan enough! He has an incredible understanding and knowledge on the market and area. He was always approachable and available for even the smallest of queries we had. He was able to create a fantastic hype around the sale of our property that meant we were able to get more than we wanted! Thanks Brendan
I have nothing but good things to say about Brendan and his team. Upfront, honest and easy to deal with. Nothing was a problem and they were always professional. It's a team like Abode that make their job look easy (which it's not!) as they do it with grace and politeness.
What can I possibly say about Brendan at Abode to do him justice. Firstly, he was able to find me a home that wasn't even on the market yet. Through his networks and reputation he was able to find my dream home. We just moved in yesterday and couldn't be happier. Brendan kept me in the loop every step of the way and made my purchase and settlement a smooth process. Thank you for everything Brendan and the Abode team, Woody Point.
We first met Brendan at an Open Home to which he was very approachable and helpful. Brendan has restored our faith in real estate agents and was a refreshing change to what we had been experiencing in the market. I contacted Brendan late on a Saturday evening, due to the fact that properties are selling within hours of being listed to organise a viewing of a property we were interested. He responded promptly and we were able to organise a viewing for the Monday. Brendan was very knowledgeable of both the area and the property and was a pleasure to deal with. We made an offer that day and nothing was too much trouble. His business colleagues where also very professional and pleasant to deal with. After purchasing a number of properties on the peninsular and dealing with agents that are no longer customer focussed. Both my father and I were very impressed with the timeliness of the communications, ease to deal with and that Brendan made himself available and kept us fully up to date with the progress of the purchase of the property. As we had been looking for a suitable property on the peninsular for over 8 weeks, we had attended many open homes and spoken to a number of agents and Brendan was a clear standout above what we had experienced. He far exceeded my expectations when he made contact with me on a Sunday morning and the rest of the process was seamless. For this we say Thank You! I would definitely recommend Brendan is you are looking to sell or purchase and you want to know that both the seller and buyers get the right attention.
Selling your home & moving can most often be very stressful, especially if it sells unexpectedly within a few hours. Brendan made this process completely stress free with his calm & organised professionalism while securing an area record result for us. Over the last 8+ years we have bought & sold properties through Brendan regardless of what agency he was with at the time. All were completed with the same no fuss, quick & pleasing result. I accredit this to his expertise & knowledge of the Peninsula & it's surrounding suburbs RE market. Now Brendan has his own agency with an equally motivated team, you can't go wrong. He's the only agent we will continue to call on.
I just wanted to thank you and the Team for the great service we have received from Abode. As I bought my first property at the age of 19 I haven't really had to deal with real estates and renting issues/enquires before but have heard some horror stories and I have to say dealing with Abode has been nothing but easy. We are gutted that we may have to move on from Campbell Street but we are also upset we won't be dealing with Abode Properties going forward. If we have to move from Campbell Street we will definitely be checking out rental listings with Abode!
We found Brendan one of the best and easiest Real Estate Agents to deal with when we were looking at purchasing a property on the Peninsula. We always find him to be very professional, courteous and amiable. Great all round service. A big thank you to Lindsay too. Very happy dealing with Brendan and his team.
Brendan is a courteous and amiable agent with many years experience on the peninsula. He sold our property promptly and for a sale price that was higher than we (and other agents) expected. We were alerted to his competence after he sold 2 neighbouring properties in a short time and for excellent sale prices. We appreciated his integrity - we noticed he was positive not only about our property but also about other properties on the market, too.
I have found both Brendan & Lindsay extremely professional & efficient in all my dealings. The whole sales process was seamless and their local knowledge second to none. They are definitely my preferred agent to buy or list with on the Peninsula
Very knowledgeable, committed and worked hard to get our property sold. Great approach to marketing without being over the top. Good feedback from everyone we spoke to about Brendan.
After 3 days of my property going online, Brendan came with two offers. I was astounded with his negotiating expertise to move the offers $20,000 higher than both parties said they were prepared to pay. His communication kept me at ease throughout the entire sale period. If you are serious about selling your property quickly, (be ready) as this is the man to do the job. Thank you Brendan and all the team at Abode Properties who contributed in making my selling experience easy & effortless. I am very grateful !
Lindsay was recommended by a good friend of mine, after he sold his house.
I found him very professional in his dealings, and his communication skills were excellent.
My house sold very quickly and I was very happy with the price obtained. I have no hesitation in recomending Lindsay when you have the need for an agent
This letter is of appreciation from us to you.
I first met Brendan in 2012, when buying a block of land in Redcliffe. I thought what a nice young man. Given this I decided to use “Abode Properties” to sell our unit this year. I do believe I made the correct choice as our agent.
It was paramount for us to have an agent with dignity and a courteous manner, in contact by phone, SMS and mail.
Buying and selling is not always an easy process when you work—shift work. I found the process stress-free and with a great outcome.
To you and your team—Thank you so very much.
A big thank you to Brendan and his staff at Abode Properties, Woody Point.
When interviewing for an agent to sell our property we were most impressed by Brendan's ability to put us at ease and his quick observations of potential attributes of our property.
His marketing was very professional and despite the fact he quoted the highest potential sale of the Agents interviewed, he managed to achieve this high goal and had a contract in 18 days!
Brendan's personality, communication skills and knowledge of the Real Estate market made the experience of selling our home relatively stress free. We would have no hesitation in recommending Brendan and his staff to any potential buyer or seller.
Brendan and the team at Abode were a fantastic choice when it came to both selling our previous home and purchasing our new one. Brendan was extremely generous with his time as well as his intimate knowledge of the Peninsula market.
It was refreshing to be guided through the process by someone with such familiarity of the local area. The team strove to keep us up to date and worked hard to achieve peace of mind for us.
We highly recommend Brendan and his great team, and would not hesitate to use him again in both a selling and purchasing capacity.
Brendan possessed the characteristics we were looking for in an agent when we decided to sell our home. He has an extensive knowledge of the industry and of the area. He also has a very likeable and professional personality.
Despite a lengthy sale , Brendan remained committed and enthusiastic. He maintained consistent communication and regularly provided us with progress reports. He recommended new strategies to keep the property fresh in the market, acted upon our requests and represented our interests.
We found Brendan a pleasure to deal with as he worked for us at all times. We also commend his knowledge, experience, ethics, commitment and dedication.
We are more than happy to write this testimonial for Brendan - the very best Real-Estate agent we have ever had!
Over the years we have brought and sold many houses, using various agents and we can honestly say that Brendan exceeds every other agent in every way.
He is completely reliable, if he says he will phone - he does, he is always very polite and well mannered. He has the ability to maintain complete trust in him, his time keeping is perfect and he will always go the extra mile for you.
We will definitely recommend him highly to anybody who is thinking of buying or selling a house knowing confidently that Brendan will give more than 100% to that task.
Brendan has a sixth sense when it comes to selling in the Redcliffe area. He knew from the outset what we could get for our house.
I was sceptical about what Brendan said was achievable, but we had a buyer before the first open home, at a better selling price than we expected.
Brendan went out of his way to sell the property and maintained his professionalism throughout the whole process.
I would recommend Brendan to anyone and am very happy with the service we received
We were even more excited when we realised the house we wanted to buy was being sold by Brendan! His knowledge of the house build and features, the local area and his happy, genuine disposition have made this a smooth and stress-free buying experience.
Mark & I have found Brendan Philp of Abode Properties to be a very professional, honest and reliable person who helped us greatly inexpediting the sale of our properties.
His experience and honest advice proved to be invaluable to us during this time. In conjunction with his hardworking and conscientious Abode team, he helped us to achieve excellent results with the sale of each of our properties.
We would highly recommend Brendan’s services to anyone wanting to buy, sell or rent properties within the Redcliffe Peninsula area and beyond. His expertise, knowledge and timely response to our many & varied questions made for a very smooth and stress free house selling process.
As Brendan made our house selling experience so ‘painless’ we would not hesitate in contacting him should we need Real Estate expertise again.
Our Peninsula property was recently sold by Mr Brendan Philp, Principal of Abode Properties, Woody Point.
We chose to list with Brendan for two reasons; firstly because we were very much at ease with his no-fuss approach, and secondly he is a "home-grown" agent, and therefore has an intimate knowledge of the local market.
Brendan certainly didnt disapoint!! His communication with us through-out the process was fantastic. He provided regular updates on the status of our potential sale, and if ever he missed our call for any reason, he would call back immediatley. Due to his attention to every detail, the sale proceeeded very smoothly.
We are pleased to have supported a local business, and are even more pleased with the fantastic customer service we received from Brendan and his team
Now I'm settled into my unit I thought I would take the time to send you a BIG Thank You for selling my home in Scarborough. From the moment I met with you at my home for an appraisal you impressed me with your knowledge of the industry and the local area.
I immediately felt comfortable with you and confident that you would sell my property. Brendan outshone his competitors from the onset and continued to impress me throughout the process.
I appreciated your regular contact and your warm and friendly communication. I was pleasantly surprised that you had more than one buyer offering the price I was happy with after only six days on the market.
I have sung your praises to many of my friends and family members and would recommend you in an instant.
Brendan, we can not thank you enough for looking after our property.
After meeting with you initially we didn't look any further when trying to find a Real Estate Agent to sell our property as you showed professionalism and enthusiasm but at the same time you were not pushy like so many other Real Estate agents can be.
This was a stressful time for us having to move up North and leave our house unoccupied. You took it upon yourself to make the house look occupied at all times so as to put your mind at ease.
You continually took prospective buyers through whilst in-between checking and maintaining our house personally so that it looked presentable. Even though we were not there, you still gave us constant updates and negotiated well on our behalf and kept us informed on everything that was happening.
We would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone, thank you again!
Brendan, I would like to write a small note, with a big thank you for taking care of the sale of our house, You came to us highly recommended by a couple of friends and from our first meeting you put us at ease with your honesty and friendliness.
Your advice from beginning to end made the whole process simple and painless in what could well have been one a most stressful time. Even though we were overseas during the negotiations on our house, you still made it feel like we were there with constant and timely updates. We would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone.
We wish you all the very best and if you are ever in Japan.
I am writing to provide feedback on my service & customer experience with Abode Properties.
We have been using Abode Properties to manage our rental properties and recently used Abode Properties to sell one of our properties.
Both Lyn and Brendan from Abode provide great service and understand the the needs of customers. We live in WA and receive regular contact in relation to our rental properties, and during the recent sale of one property, the service and guidance has been excellent.
I am more than happy to recommend Abode Properties to nay purchaser, a seller or landlord - considering buying, selling or renting.
This is the second time I have had Brendan sell a home for me. On both occasions he has been very focused on getting the right buyer for me.
Each time he has got really good value for me. He has done it without any drama. I find him very honest which enables the seller to focus on the real facts. I have and will refer Brendan to all my acquaintances.
In fact I will get Brendan to find me my next house as well.
When first choosing an agent Brendan stood out with his confidence and enthusiasm.
His knowledge and experience showed when he set a price on our house that was higher than we hoped for, and he achieved it with the first buyer who saw the property - someone who was ready and waiting on his books.
However, he didnt stop there, but continued to work hard for us to find back-up buyers just in case. He and his team have been friendly and helpful throughout the whole process, always available to answer queries and to calm our nerves.
Choosing Brendan and the Abode Team was the best decision we made for selling our house, they made it a much easier and less stressful time
If you want to sell your house then you couldn't go past choosing The AbodeTeam. They are hard working, self motivated, reliable, well-mannered, dedicated to their job and respected by peers.
Abode have come to our rescue twice now and have managed to sell both of our properties where others have failed. They had different ideas and were in tune with what was needed to get a great result for his clients and their property.
Brendan gave us his expert advice on how the property should be marketed, what advertising and photos were needed to get a response from the public, (even in a declining market). He worked tirelessly to deliver the result his clients expect.
Thank you again Team Abode, we are pleased with both results you have managed to accomplish for us in a very short time and wish you a very successful career.
We would not hesitate to recommend Team Abode to anyone wishing to buy or sell a property, his attention to detail and positive approach is exceptional.
Brendan Philp from Abode Properties is a terrific guy to deal with. He is professional, personable, persitant and committed to acheiving the best result possible for both buyer and seller.
He always seems to be available and returns calls quickly. Nothing is too much trouble. His 'can do' attitude and mega-watt smile helped make the whole process of selling our unit quite painless and based on our experience we have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone wanting to buy or sell on the Peninsula.
He's so good, we told him he should wear a Superman cape!
Outstanding result in less than 48 hours! We've come to expect results like this from Brendan. This is the third property transaction we have had with Brendan in the past five years and each time he has exceeded our expectations. We recommend Brendan to anyone who is thinking Real Estate in the Redcliffe area. He is a great listener and can be trusted completely to look after you.
Pleasure to deal with on our property purchase. Very professional and great communication.
We have used Brendan in the past and won't hesitate to use him again in the future. We have always found himself to be trustworthy, reliable and hardworking, thanks again mate!
Brendan is realistic, professional and works to a plan. Brendan understands his market and is great to deal with.
I am more than happy to recommend Brendan & Abode Properties to theirs.
Brendan was his usual professional and personable self during the sale of our home. His abilities are very good and makes the entire process as painless as is possible. You have our respect and awe and we would recommend you to anyone interested in buying or selling properties.
Brendan was incredibly knowledgeable,patient and easy to talk to and genuinely interested in helping us purchase our unit. He is a local of the area and gave great tips on location n tips that may affect the resale of our property. I would highly recommend Brendan and if i were to purchase another property in the Redcliffe area l would go through Brendan again.
Brendan from Abode was a total professional through and through. He came recommended and I very much endorse that recommendation. Great local knowledge as well as honesty and transparency throughout the process.
