Testimonials – Sellers

I have been living at 13 Elanora Avenue, Mooloolaba for the past 38 years and when the time came to sell there was the dilemma of who to appoint as the sales agent.On the strong recommendation of friends I appointed Mark Unkel and that was one of the best decisions I have made.

Mark has just sold my house very successfully with a very short sales campaign of 4 weeks ending with an auction.

I felt I was in excellent hands throughout the whole process. Mark is a total professional and everything he says he will do he does.

If you have a waterfront property to sell you should not go past Mark Unkel and Elite Lifestyle Properties.

To Whom it May Concern:

We have used Mark Unkel on several occasions as our Real Estate Representative. On all occasions he has been nothing but professional in all aspects during the purchase /sale process. I first used Mark when I lived in Hong Kong and he provided fully informed and professional guidance.

Recently we needed a sale in a time compressed situation and Mark delivered a result. He was able to provide us with an outcome when it mattered. I have no hesitation in recommending Mark and his Team at EliteLifestyle Properties.

I am more than happy to share comments on our experience with Mark Unkel of Elite Lifestyle Real Estate regarding the recent sale of our family home.

Our experience from beginning to end was dealt with very smoothly and efficiently. We elected to ‘go to auction’ on the advice of Mark and were interested in a professionally well managed quick sale. Mark Unkel achieved this for us with his excellent management of initial private viewings, on line advertising and open house inspections each Saturday leading up to the auction. He provided us with an immediate report after each inspection was held and this was followed up during the week with an in-depth report on potential buyers. We were given constant feedback which was great.

Mark is a very enthusiastic person who takes pride in doing his job extremely professionally. At no time did we feel rushed into any decisions and over the time frame of 6 weeks, Mark had sold our house at auction with a very healthy number of Clients interested in the property.

If you are wanting to sell your home stress free, I would not hesitate to recommend Mark. He is honest, upfront, hardworking and with his reliable team at Elite, a pleasure to work with him.

We are currently overseas and selling our property in Minyama, we approached Mark based on our research seeing him as a stand out with his marketing approach and results. We were not disappointed; Mark was professional, open and honest during the whole process.

Communication is critical in any process but especially as we live abroad, we were consistently informed on the progress of the sale from beginning to end. Mark quickly gained our trust and I would not hesitate in recommending Elite to anyone, and going forward he will be our agent of choice.

Testimonial for Mark Unkel

As Queenslanders, who had lived and worked in Victoria for 28 years, 19 years ago, on a holiday in Qld from Victoria, we decided to buy a home on the Sunshine Coast, in which we could spend our retirement years. We had always spent every holiday from childhood in Mooloolaba so that area was foremost in our minds.
During this process we met many agents but one, for many reasons, stood out from them all – a young, enthusiastic Mark Unkel.
In the few days that we had left in the Mooloolaba Mark did everything he could to enable us to achieve our dream and we actually negotiated price etc as we drove back down the highway back to Melbourne.

As a family and with friends we have spent many wonderful times in our waterfront home but, as we progressed in age, we realised that the time had come for us to downsize, not an easy decision to make. Our home had been on the market for 6 months when, out and about one day, we ran into Mark and thus our decision was made! Could Mark possibly sell/market our unusual and different style home as he is widely renowned for his success when selling waterfront property?

After much discussion and, although quite apprehensive, we decided on the auction process, something which we had never experience before. This decision turned out to be the best answer to achieving a very successful & quick sale.

Throughout the 4 week campaign Mark was the complete professional, with his unique communication and negotiation skills, exceptional attention to details, always assuring us of complete satisfaction and often having to allay our stress levels. We thank you sincerely Mark for your professional dedication in achieving a happy outcome for this family.

We have no hesitation in recommending Mark and his agency to anyone considering buying/selling property on the Sunshine Coast but more particularly on waterfront in the Minyama/Mooloolaba areas.
