What Past Clients Say
I have helped people who live locally, in other parts of Brisbane, interstate or overseas sell their property in the inner southside of Brisbane for over 9 years. I have won numerous industry awards and have sold homes for the same people a number of times or, in some cases, the same home a couple of times. Read what some of my past clients say…
Marita has been a fantastic agent in our time of need, we liked her service so much we went back to her again, again and again, 3 times. Our first encounter was for the purchase of our first house. We were running late because we were trying to cram in as many open inspections as possible in one day.
My partner called to say we're running late and Marita waited for us to arrive, one month later we were proud new owners. A few months passed and I was looking to sell my old property interstate in Adelaide. Marita helped us organise a colleague interstate and the property was sold as is before the sign went up. Our latest interaction was a number of years later although we were never more than a phone call away.
Throughout these years, we've always asked for her connections and recommendations. She keeps us up to date with what's happening with the properties around Annerley. We finally decided we needed a larger house and without hesitation we chose to go with Marita. What better person to sell our house than the person who sold it to us. She's seen the house before and seen the upgrades that we've made.
She organised additional extended settlement periods and negotiated with buyers outside usual working hours. Although in the end we did not get the our first offer (at no fault of Marita), she still provided through her network, recommending people to take professional photos for sale, provide good value quotes and repairs. She even went as far as calling us when she was supposed to be resting after surgery to finalise the settlement of our house. Now that's service!
When we decided to sell our family home we chose Marita as she displayed qualities of professionalism, integrity and downright commonsense. She more than justified our confidence in her and the whole presentation, marketing & sale went smoothly because of the behind the scene hard work and know how of Marita.!Arthur - 128 Ferndale St, Annerley
We were so pleased with the commitment, motivation and energy Marita showed in selling our house. Her communication skills are one of her greatest strengths and she was very personable with her dealings with us and our tenants. She was also very helpful assisting us with presentation of the property and she gave us continual updates on progress with the sale. We would not hesitate in recommending her as an agent who demonstrates integrity and professionalism, is lovely to deal with and get great results in a tough market.Lucas & Elizabeth - 7 Errington St, Moorooka
Marita was able to negotiate an outstanding outcome on our first property so we engaged her to do it again a second time with the same great result. We have no hesitation in recommending Marita for her depth of experience and professionalism in real estate.Justin & Monique - 52 Pozieres Rd, Tarragindi
We highly recommend Marita Sorensen as your next Real Estate Agent. We first made contact with her after a recommendation from a co-worker who bought from Marita as we were having trouble getting our home sold with our current Real Estate Agent. Even though Marita said she did not usually work in the Carindale area, she said she would have a look at our property, do some research and try to help us or recommend another Real Estate Agent in our area. Even though Carindale was well out of her usual area, she agreed to sign us up and within 3 weeks she had sold our home for a bit more than what we were asking for our home. The service and personal attention we received from Marita was exceptional and unexpected from a Real Estate Agent!
Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Marita to help you in this life changing move. We could not have asked for a better Real Estate Agent to guide us through the process.
Selling my home was a difficult decision to make for a person my age. Marita was very friendly and understanding. She ensured that everything was handled efficiently with the sale. I would have no hesitation in recommending Marita as a trustworthy and dependable real estate agent.Doris Aged 86 - 4 Seidler St, Yeronga
When we were decided to sell our home, there were many real estate agents we could have chosen but there was one that stood out from the rest…Marita Sorensen. Consultation and communication were the two key components that helped sell our home. Marita consulted and communicated with us on price, marketing of the property, advertising, through to the “open” homes that were held. We were very happy with Marita.David & Peter - 62 King St, Annerley
I wish to express my appreciation to Marita Sorensen for her efficiency and expediency in the recent sale of my house in Moorooka.
Marita was the ultimate professional. Her ethical approach gave a very nervous client a great deal of confidence.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Marita to handle the sale of any property.
From our initial meeting you gave an honest opinion of the property and what would be required to sell it. Your suggested marketing strategy incorporating a furniture makeover, new carpet, featured advertising and professional photography was instrumental in attracting potential purchasers. As an interstate investor I have dealt with numerous property professionals in Brisbane over the years and I can categorically say that none have acted in my best interests to the level you have. I am very appreciative of your personal involvement and the effort you have put in to selling the property, and impressed by your honesty and enthusiasm you have for your work.Col – 4/7 Christensen St, Yeronga
After going against Marita’s guidance and wasting 3 months with another agent, I finally came to my senses and signed her up. Marita then sold my house in 3 days at list price in a very tough market. Many thanks.Aaron - 6 Truscott St, Moorooka
After attempting for several months to sell our house at Annerley, I gave Marita a call. Within the first week she sold our house for more money than the previous agent even had it listed at. I highly recommend Marita (Harcourts) and will definitely utilise her services again.Cory -29 Rigby St, Annerley
We found Marita to be totally professional in the way she presented herself personally and in her approach to the marketing and sale of our home. She worked in our best interest at all times and negotiated a successful sale for us. Her competence, knowledge, enthusiasm and professionalism were outstanding. We have already recommended her to family & friends.Chris & Fiona – 15 Kenway St, Moorooka
Marita obtained an excellent result for us. She gave us a realistic picture of the current market and wasted no time getting our property up for sale. We had a contract within a week of putting it on the market at the price we wanted. We needed a quick, hassle-free sale and Marita ensured we got it! We would recommend her to anyone looking to sell.Megan & Tom – 36 Caroline St, Annerley
Dear Marita, We want to thank you so much for all the extra things you did for us in our efforts to sell Drury Lane. We deeply appreciated all the organisation and co-ordination of the different people you did for us when we were so far away. You did a really fantastic job with a great outcome. Once again, thanks so much.Rod & Damien – 26 Drury Lane, Annerley
Thanks again for your efforts. You have gone above & beyond.Andrew – 21 Caskey St, Moorooka
After buying a house on the Sunshine Cost, we made a snap decision to sell our unit in Yeronga. We chose Marita as our agent since she had previously approached us with interest in selling our property, and gave us a lot of helpful advice plus contacts for tradesmen for some minor renovations. The timing ended up coinciding with a trip overseas, however, Marita reassured us she could have the unit sold before we got back. While we were away, she went beyond the call of duty co-ordinating tradesmen to finish our renos, and arranged a furniture package which made the place look spectacular. We received 2 excellent offers on the first open home, and had the contract signed while we were overseas. We couldn’t have been happier with the results.Helen & David, 6/17 Christensen St, Yeronga
Marita has just sold our home in Annerley and we couldn’t be happier with both the process and the result. Marita’s experience in real estate was clearly evident throughout.
Marita led us through the selling process in a clear and logical way. She was both very knowledgeable and consultative, giving us various options so that we could make informed decisions.
Marita’s wonderful advice on the presentation of our home was a big factor in drawing a large number of prospective buyers to the first open house, resulting in four offers and a successful sale. Marita’s thoroughness and excellent negotiating ability were also big factors in the successful sale.
Selling a home can potentially be quite stressful. We had great confidence in Marita and this made the selling process much easier.
Marita offered sound advice as to a marketing and advertising strategy which was then carried out in a most professional manner……the auction was well attended which confirmed that Marita had received the interest of quite a number of prospective purchasers…the auctioneer Marita selected was excellent. The property sold on the day and I was more than pleased with the price...I have no hesitation in recommending Marita to anybody considering the sale of a property. Her competence, knowledge, enthusiasm and professionalism were outstanding.Peter, 27 Lewisham St, Annerley
I would like to highly recommend Marita Sorensen for her professionalism and dedication, as well as her friendly and open manner. I am entirely happy with the way Marita handled the sale of my property and very pleased with the sale price she secured for it…. I am pleased to have worked with Marita and to have the opportunity to commend her on her professional approach and excellent client service and communication skills.Ian, 34 Caroline St, Annerley
In an unsuccessful attempt to sell our home privately we were enlightened to what talent real estate agents possess, in particular, Marita Sorensen. Marita professionally marketed and sold our property through auction, achieving a successful result in, at that time, a difficult marketplace.David & Andriene - 42 Chester Rd, Annerley
We were thrilled with the results of Marita's sale of our home. She gave us some great tips forthe open house and it sold on the first weekend! We're very grateful for Marita's help through what we expected to be a very stressful time. She made it easy and a smooth process.Ross & Allison, 15 Millicent St, Moorooka
It takes a very talented and special real-estate agent to make selling your home fun and stress-free. And that is exactly what Marita did for us! We could not have imagined a better result or experience. Marita is exceptionally personable, respectful, friendly and reliable. With her guidance and professionalism our townhouse was sold on the first open house, at a higher than expected price! Marita really understands people and has in-depth real-estate knowledge that made selling our home a breeze. March 26, 2014Clair & Richard, 4/130 Hamilton Rd, Moorooka
