Comments from some of our valued Sellers….
"We would like to thank Tony Lewis for taking us full circle with our time in the Hunter Valley. We purchased Hamilton Street from Tony 10 years ago and have enjoyed his relaxed professional style twice with the recent sale." Joseph & Carola Wright - 73 Hamilton St, Ellalong
"Although it was a very difficult and stressful sale we had total confidence in Cain and his professional abilities. He was always available to talk and give advice and he made a difficult experience more bearable. We would recommend Jurd's and Cain to anyone wanting to sell rural property in this market." Barry & Chris Miller - 379 Talga Rd, Rothbury
“From our very first meeting with Cain Beckett, he made us feel very relaxed and confident that the process of selling would go well. Rachael Brecht then handled the sale from then on, and we found her wonderful, very professional at all times and she worked very hard to get the best price for us. She kept us informed every step of the way and that made the process very easy on us. Both Rachael and Cain have a very pleasant manner. We are so glad we decided to go with Jurd’s Real Estate and we would like to express our sincere appreciation to Rachael and Cain for the truly professional way in which the sale was handled. Congratulations Jurd’s Real Estate” Pamela Rennex – 149 Mt Vincent Rd, Mulbring

“I wish to write to you to commend the services of Justin Morrison. I met Justin last year to inspect a property at 27 Daniel Street and he was honest and upfront with offering an appraisal for this property. After reviewing appraisals from other agents, (and considering that there were other agents who never bothered to respond to my request), I have contacted Justin to have my property listed with Jurd’s.From the first day the service from the Jurd’s team has been excellent. My house was a very difficult sale, with problems arising from building inspections and matters that I was not previously aware of that affected the decision of early purchasers. To my surprise, and with a lot of persistence from Justin, a buyer was found who could deal with the issues and an offer was put forward that I was rather happy with. I am very pleased with the results and with the effort the team from Jurd’s put into making the sale happen. Next time I need to buy or sell a house in the Hunter region I will certainly engage your services, and would have no hesitation in recommending your agency to friends.” Alan Williams - 27 Daniel Street, Cessnock
“I have had dealing with the sales and property
management side with Justin. I am very happy with the service and
professionalism of the staff at Jurd’s Real Estate

"At the time I decided to sell my 20ha rural landholding located in Pokolbin, Hunter Valley, NSW late in 2011, I was mindful of the difficult global economic conditions and the impact it was having on the Australian Real Estate market.
I called for a meeting with Alan Jurd and Shelly Jurd of Jurd’s Real Estate to discuss the range of viable disposal options which might be available to maximize the value of the landholding. Alan and Shelly were able to present a detailed overview of the market conditions including how to best capitalise on the timing of the offer. They provided a typical profile of the likely purchaser enabling the marketing program to have maximum impact.
They also provided detailed evidence of sales of comparable properties in the region. This enabled them to deduce and recommend the valuation range for t he landholding.
The sale of the property has now been completed. All parties to the sale are delighted with the outcome. The sale was completed within a remarkably short marketing period. I was kept regularly informed of the level and quality of enquiry.
I want to congratulate Alan Jurd and Shelly Jurd, along with their professional support staff for a transaction which was conducted without fault." Peter Hooper – Hooper's Lane, 146 Debeyers Road, Pokolbin

I am still truly amazed how one company can have so much of the market in such a competitive environment.
