Seller Testimonials

“Michael Kettle was so helpful when it came to selling my home. When I first moved in to my Aroona home, I had dealt with Michael and he had always kept in touch with me over the years. After my first inspection, about half an hour later he came and said to me, ‘So do you want to sell?’ and that was it! He was very laid-back and calm. It can be difficult selling but the market is picking up. I just can't believe it happened so quickly."

"Thank you so much Jacob and First National Caloundra for helping us sell our home. From the moment we made first contact with Jacob Wareham as prospective buyers he kept us on his radar. As buyers looking for a property we found Jacob to be just the right amount of helpful without being pushy."

"We made contact with a number of agents when we were looking to purchase a home. Some pursued us (rather aggressively) but you followed us up in a professional yet more comfortable/helpful manner. When it came time to sell our home it was an easy decision to meet with you. The information package you supplied to us when we listed with you was very comprehensive with full details of the selling process."

"The communication we received from you was outstanding.  It exceeded our expectations with weekly reports and statistics giving us valuable feedback regarding our property. You listened to us and took on board our opinion (very patiently I might add) and used your knowledge of the market combined with gentle persuasion to keep us realistic so we would know a good offer when it came along."

"You presented all offers to us and were very accepting when we declined them. We were quite firm on the price we wanted and you worked with your team at First National Caloundra to find a suitable buyer and today we thank you and congratulate you on a successful sale."

Warm Regards,

Jacob Wareham Exceeded Seller's Expectations

We really can't fault Michael and First National - prior to selling they were excellent property managers. They really helped us through a difficult time when we had to leave Caloundra. Thank you so much First National Caloundra team!!

It has been a long road trying to sell a house bought at the top of the property boom then having to move during a property downtime...

Michael has been there for us all along, taking excellent care of both us and our property by finding great tenants, providing service over and above expectations.

Michael then guided us through selling our property when the time was right with great patience, dedication and determination.

Good on you Michael, you are great!

I recently sold my townhome through First National Caloundra and dealt with Jacob Wareham. Jacob was friendly yet professional, respectful and polite at all times. I would recommend Jacob Wareham to anyone wishing to sell or buy property.

Selling my family home after 30 years was a little daunting. When I met Michael McLean from First National Real Estate, I decided to go with him as he seemed to be a genuine, call it as it is person.

My assessment proved correct and the sale went smoothly and was not daunting after all!

Thanks Michael.

Michael McLean makes sell less 'daunting' for homeowner

Jacob did a great job selling our property. He understood the goal and kept us informed on a regular basis.Once he had an interested buyer he moved quickly and professionally to close the deal. This involved several phone calls where Jacob worked to maximise the price. We were pleased with the result. He was enthusiastic and a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend him. Importantly we conducted the entire sale from Melbourne without any fuss.

We first met Michael McLean 15 months previously and due to health complications could not proceed with our property listing, he was very understanding. During the following months he kept in touch more like a friend than a salesperson, when our timing for a sale was right he found a purchaser and within 2 weeks we had a contract on our property. I regard Michael McLean as a true professional in all aspects of Real Estate and would not hesitate to recommend his services.

We dealt mostly with Jacob Wareham. He is a good salesman. He is polite, honest and professional. We would recommend him to other people. He is a hard worker and follows his leads with tenacity. Michael has years of experience in the Real Estate field. He was very helpful with information about the settlement process. He is able to work well with tenants, managers, buyers and sellers to get a positive outcome.
Thank you both for helping us sell our townhouse.

Michael Kettle is one of those individuals who give a good name to Real Estate Agents. While he has a very clear understanding as to what the market trends are he has a nice way of dealing with over optimistic sellers and gently brings them to a reality check. Most agents have a veneer of respectfulness toward sellers, but in Michael's case one senses empathy and a genuine willingness to negotiate with respect. I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael Kettle and First National to others seeking to buy or sell.
