Michael & Marion Plunkett, Essendon

In June, my wife and I made the decision to sell our house at Braemar St Essendon.  Following an approach from Ms Teresa Soliman, we decided to market the property through Pennisi Real Estate. Whilst a number of Pennisi sales personnel were involved in the valuation and marketing of the property Ms Soliman appeared, from our viewpoint, to address the issue with a high level of determination and marketing skill. It was therefore not a surprise when Ms Soliman tabled an acceptable contract for the sale of the property within two weeks of the commencement of the sales campaign.

Several aspects of the sale stood out;

  • Teresa and the Pennisi Sales Team were able to exceed the advertised price which, at the time of sale, was possibly a record for this type of property;
  • By electing to sell privately the sales proceedings commenced immediately the property went to market; and
  • The method of sale minimised advertising expenditure and eliminated the inconvenience of any open inspections.

In reviewing all aspects of the marketing plan and its execution it became obvious to us that Ms Soliman’s drive was the key factor in accomplishing the sale in such a short time frame. She possessed an accurate knowledge of the Essendon market and had access to an extensive list of persons with an interest in properties in this particular area and price range. From our perspective we were delighted with the overall response from Pennisi Real Estate and, in particular, Teresa Soliman. Accordingly we would have no hesitation in recommending Teresa to any person wishing to sell in this area.”
