Testimonials

I have known Mr Grant Penrose for in excess of 10 years.  He has always impressed by his invariable professionalism, real estate knowledge and courtesy, which he combines with an open and welcoming approach.  In placing a significant asset in the hands of a real estate agent, one has to have the confidence that one’s goals are fully understood and met.  In an industry where effective communication underpins successful sales, Grant has, at all times, had the ability to understand my goals and effectively “walk me through” the process.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Grant to any prospective purchaser or vendor.  His honesty and integrity are beyond reproach and his knowledge of the industry detailed and accurate.   Milton

Integrity and humility are not words often associated with the stereotypical real estate agent, however these are two words we would use to describe Grant Penrose.  At all times during the emotional sale of a loved one’s property, Grant conducted himself with both.  Grant quietly and efficiently got the job done, keeping us informed of the progress of the sale.  We would recommend Grant to anyone seeking these qualities in employing an agent to sell or buy a property. John and Laura

I have dealt with both Grant and Christina of RE/MAX Profile over the past 5 years with my home in Kenmore.  They are a husband and wife team whom are very dedicated to their clients in every sense.  My property has been successfully rented during this time through RE/MAX with little or no disruption to me.  I recently placed the property in Grant’s hands for sale and he has worked tirelessly to achieve a positive outcome!  He always followed up with me and potential buyer’s every step of the way ensuring a sale would happen.   Grant never stopped working the property and always gave me the feedback on a regular basis either by phone call or email.  If I was to ever purchase property in Brisbane again I would have no doubt employing Remax to property manage it or sell it.  I wish both Christina and Grant and their team all the best in the future and thank them all for working for me and with me over the past 5 years.

From our initial meeting, Grant’s detailed knowledge of current local market trends, advertising strategies and sales options combined with his honest professional advice allowed us to develop a marketing and sales campaign specifically suited to our needs.His friendly and accommodating nature was reassuring and allowed us to feel at ease during negotiations. Grant’s follow up of potential buyers was exceptional and we were continually updated on all developments. Throughout the whole campaign Grant’s commitment to securing the best possible result for us was evident and when the house sold at auction, as planned, we couldn’t have been happier with the result. Peter

I can recommend Grant as a courteous, comprehensive, prompt and diplomatic real estate agent who achieved pleasing results in a short time frame. Dr Robyn

We found Grant to be very organised and efficient, liaising with both my wife in Mackay and myself in PNG, assisting us in the signing off of all relevant documents and taking all the stress out of the whole procedure, on the whole, a very smooth transition! We were very pleased with Grant and as we come into a position to buy more investment property in the near future, Grant will be the first person we call. Bob

We are delighted with the level of service and the promptness of your actions in getting our property onto the market.  I think your professional and proactive approach to marketing the property was key to us achieving the sale in such quick time and at a value over the asking price. Jim

We appreciate and are very grateful for your diligence, follow up and professionalism in securing our investment unit in Kelvin Grove. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending your services to prospective clients and look forward to continuing our business with you as our rental Property Managers.  Russell and Rae

John and I wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did in selling our home at 505 Brookfield Road Kenmore Hills in November 2009. From our past experiences with you we had no hesitation in calling you and “only you” to market our large acreage property. It was tough times and we realised quickly that we needed an upfront agent, one we could trust implicitly with the sale of our home…For us we had no hesitation in choosing you as our agent, and I hope that others who read this testimonial will realise that there is only one decision they need to make and that is to appoint you as their “Agent” with the confidence that upon your advice they can then leave the rest of the job to you.  Ricky and John

This is just a note to say thanks so much for all your hard work in selling my uncles property at 123 Baroona Road, Paddington. We were not only delighted with the result we enjoyed the process too. The written reports outlining every persons comments and daily contact gave us the confidence and information we needed to make  informed decisions. We are confident that you gave us the right advice in terms of the marketing strategy and of course were pleased with the 8 registered bidders and competitive bidding which resulted in an excellent price on sale day. I would also like to add that my uncle loves receiving your regular newsletters and would like to continue doing so. Thanks again for working so hard for us.  David

Thank you for the fine work that you put into ensuring that our house was sold within my budget range and in a timely manner.  Your efforts were most appreciated.  Jim

You folk have been a pleasure to work with from initial purchase of my property, to property management through to the final sale.  Garth

I have been buying and selling homes now for some years, and I have to say the dealing with Grant Penrose in the recent sale of one of my properties has been a fantastic experience. I have dealt with many different Realtors in the past but Grant took the selling of my property to a whole new level in relation to the level of professionalism, continued feedback, eagerness to assist and to offer an unsurpassed level of satisfaction. Any future dealings with any purchases or sales in real estate, I will only get Grant involved.  Frank

What an awesome experience it was selling our home with you. Your professionalism from our initial meeting through to and after the settlement was exceptional.  Mitchell and I both felt fully informed throughout the whole process, keeping us abreast of every detail of the marketing, sale and settlement on a daily basis was greatly appreciated. Your knowledge of the market, advice, and approachable manner allowed us to be in control of negations and achieve a fantastic result that we were both delighted over. Lauren and Mitch

We are very pleased with our recent selling experience through Remax Profile with Grant and Christina. Grant worked closely with me outlining a marketing program which was executed perfectly and resulted in our property selling under the hammer at auction. With his friendly and honest nature and hardworking commitment, I would definitely recommend Grant to friends and strangers alike. Daniel

Thank you for assisting us with the sale of our investment property at Fernberg Road, Paddington. You kept us well informed and we appreciated the phone calls and emails. You kept the tenant on side and helped ‘smooth the waters’ with a fussy buyer. Being from interstate, we also relied on your local knowledge of the sale process and the paperwork required (eg completing the body corporate Disclosure Statement for the unit). Thank you again for an excellent and professional service.  Mike & Lyn

I want to share with you the integrity Grant and Christina have demonstrated to me over 8 years in association with them performing real estate transactions.  Grant and Christina have broken the mould and you can truly set aside all preconceived negative feelings and emotions you have when trusting the sale of your property to them.  I have experienced them performing their services at levels unheard of on many occasions and that is why I refer all my sellers to them without hesitation. Jennifer

We have bought and sold numerous houses and units through Grant and Christina Penrose. I would have to say that they are not only the most professional and passionate people in their industry that I’ve come across, but I think their customer service, attention to detail and results would stand up in any service industry anywhere in the country. I’m generally pretty tough on the service industry, in that the expectation that most of you have is that is we only get mediocrity in service and follow through. Christina and Grant are by far the exception to the rule where their service, professionalism, follow up and constant attention to detail is truly outstanding.  Enough said.  Gary

This was our first experience selling property and Grant made the entire experience smooth and stress free for us. From the very beginning of the process he kept us informed of the current market and gave us valuable information regarding the price and presentation of our property. At no time did we feel pressured or rushed. Comprehensive reports were delivered every week, keeping us up to date with the interest in our property. The property was on the market on Friday afternoon, with the first open house on Saturday. Grant visited our house on that Sunday afternoon with an excellent contract that we signed at full price with a settlement before Christmas. This was a result that we did not expect and I’m positive we would not have achieved without Grant’s experience, professionalism and passion for real estate. Grant has restored our faith in Real Estate Agents.  Should we ever need to buy or sell a property again there is no doubt that we will be contacting Grant first and foremost. Dom

We’d like to thank you for assisting us with the sale of our house in Fig Tree Pocket. We appreciated your honesty and frequent communication. Not only did you offer a professional service but you made the stress of selling a property much easier with your support and guidance. Our house had previously been on the market for 6 months without any offers. You took the time and effort to help us make the house more appealing to prospective buyers. We would not hesitate in recommending you to others. Helen & James

When my Mother suggested I use Grant and Christina Penrose from REMAX Paddington to sell my apartment in Bulimba I thought why not give them a try.I spoke with Grant and he arranged to come and inspect my property. When he arrived it was very obvious that he had extensively researched the market for my area, so I felt confident with his proposal. After that it was totally hassle-free for me. He arranged photographers to take shots of the property, organized the marketing and open house and I was blown away with his efficiency, punctuality and friendliness. I never felt for one moment that I was out of the loop, Grant communicated with me constantly.My apartment sold at the first open house. Grant brought me four excellent contracts within a few hours and I accepted one that was fully unconditional and offering more money than I was asking. I believe these results are the ultimate in representation, so I have no hesitation in recommending Grant to anyone wanting an honest, smart and professional real estate agent.  Shane

Just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you very much for the gift I received from you yesterday. It was very nice of you. I have to say you certainly made the whole process of the purchase a lot easier and I really appreciate the proactive approach you took to finalising the contract and closing out any issues that arose. Much appreciated and certainly to a higher standard than the majority of other agents I have dealt with in my time. Nick

Let us thank you for the fine work that you put into ensuring that our house was sold within my budget range and in a timely manner.  Your efforts were most appreciated. Darren

We would like to thank you for looking after the sale of our home in RED HILL.  From the outset you provided a professional service that covered every detail.  Thepresentation of the property and your suggested campaign made our choice to commission REMAX Profile the right one. We appreciated your honesty regarding minor improvements we needed to make to bringour property into today’s market place. This in turn gave us the ability to achieve the result we were looking for. We also appreciated your 1st class presentation at all times and can recommend REMAX highly to any potential future clients. Thank you once again and we look forward to any future dealing with REMAX Profile. James

I am pleased to offer a recommendation for Grant Penrose. Grant took over the sale of our two properties in St Lucia after they had been with another agent for 5 months. His aggressive marketing approach managed to achieve more people through the properties than the total number in the previous 5 months and both properties were sold in a short period in what has been a seriously depressed real estate market. Grant’s attention to detail and advice on how to advertise and approach difficult purchaser requests was great, as were the friendly calls after every open home. His communication and negotiations between both purchasers and the vendor was smooth and trouble free. M.E. Smith

Grant has been exceptional in his services to sell my property. His professionalism in dealing with the tenants has also been a warm welcome. I would not hesitate to use Grant’s services again. Martin

Grant, I wanted to take time out, albeit a little belated, to pass on my sincere thanks on behalf of my wife Joanne and I.  You have single-handedly restored my confidence in the real estate industry through your professionalism, honesty and willingness to help.  As you know we had experienced poor service at the hands of a competitor prior to dealing with you.  However, throughout the negotiation and purchase of our new property in Paddington, we were delighted with the way you engaged us and kept us informed at every stage, followed us up with courtesy and went out of your way to meet us at times and locations suitable to us.   Being new to the Queensland market, you took all the hard work out of buying a house for us.  We feel we secured the property for a fair price, and hope that the vendor did also.   If this is the way you have made us feel, I can understand why your vendor customers choose you also.   I would have no hesitation in recommending Grant Penrose or the Bardon REMAX office to my friends, family and colleagues for listing or purchase of property.   Thank you and well done.   Cameron

We have bought and sold houses over many years. Grant Penrose from the very beginning kept us informed and gave us valuable information. The property had open for inspections and Grant handled each and every inspection with attention to detail, his customer service is outstanding.  Grant is a true professional in every way, took his time with us and never once did we feel pressured. Weekly updates were presented to us in a timely manner. We both thank Grant for his wonderful service, very much appreciated.  Jim and Sandra

Grant’s efforts during the sale of the house were wonderful and his communication with us and the tenants kept everyone in the loop. We are sure this gave prospective buyers confidence to purchase. Thanks again. Bob, Ken and Families

Dear Grant,  Our sincere thanks for the tireless effort you put into the marketing campaign which led  to a most successful  result in the sale of our property  at your auction on Saturday. Your professionalism, knowledge of the market, follow-up and feedback were greatly appreciated and as a consequence we would commend  to others that they contact you for their sale or purchase of real estate.  With Kind Regards.  John, Alison and Marion

After a disastrous campaign with another agency, we decided to re-list our property, in Bardon, with Grant Penrose at RE/MAX Profile.  Thankfully we did, from the minute we engaged Grant and his team to sell our property by auction, he was up and running with their very effective marketing campaign, which attracted lots of potential buyers.  Grant and the sales team at RE/MAX were very professional, low cost and successful. Much to our delight, we sold our house on Auction Day, thanks to Grant and everyone at RE/MAX Profile for really putting in a giant effort, his sales campaign covered all bases, which resulted in success on the day. Margo and Fred

My wife and I have just sold our lifetime home in Bardon and I am here to say to those in the market to sell or buy a property, I can soundly recommend Grant Penrose of RE/MAX Profile to look after your real estate needs, concerns and marketing challenges.  The process of selling our much loved home seemed to be quite a daunting venture but this was made far less hectic thanks to Grant’s professional outlook in guiding us through the minefield that comes with selling our castle.  He was able to navigate through the oceans of procedures that came with selling our home, thus making the sale a straightforward and informative path that allowed us to voice our concerns and questions, with the end result of reaching the asking price we were seeking.  Grant was able to take into consideration two major factors when completing the task of selling our home: the first was the emotional attachment that came with our house as we have lived in Bardon for over sixty four years, raising our family in a wonderful community environment.  Realizing that having to let go of such a home and neighborhood that was full of lifetime memories and friendships, Grant took his time when going over the selling protocols, where he eased our minds and made the transition to our retirement home an easy path to follow.  The second consideration was our age and the fact that there would be many tasks beyond our physical capability, Grant organized many reliable outside agency to step in and help complete the physical side of setting up, cleaning up and moving up to the next chapter in our life.   We would highly recommend Grant Penrose of RE/MAX Profile, should you ever be in the market to sell or buy a property, I am sure that you will be happy with Grant’s professional attitude and tireless effort to help you move in or out of your next home, after all a family’s home is their castle! George and Maureen

We have done business with Grant Penrose and RE/MAX Profile for many years. Grant’s attention to detail and need to get the small things right is exceptional. We have sold and bought through his team and have always been left feeling that a great result has been achieved. Grant is an exceptional communicator. Throughout our recent sale process, Grant kept us informed weekly, with written and verbal reports, of progress. Our home was sold under the hammer at auction thanks to Grant. We got the price we wanted, and the marketing costs through Grant were very competitive. We are heading for the Sunshine Coast but if we are in the need of an agent again back in Brisbane, we will be calling Grant. So if you are looking for a great team to sell or to source you a property then Grant and his team should be your first call. Mark and Amanda

Geoff and I want to thank you for your hard work in getting mum and dads house sold yesterday. We really appreciated your professionalism as their real estate agent and even more important to us, is the kind and considerate way you have helped and supported mum and dad during this journey.  It has been a big help knowing that when you phoned them or dropped in to update them, you showed a great deal of compassion and respect towards them. Being here in Gatton has made it difficult for us to be with them all the time, but knowing you were the one they were dealing with has made it easier for us as well… thank you so much. Arthur and Rosamond

I want to congratulate Grant Penrose and RE/MAX Bardon for all the hard work and diligence shown on the successful sale of my unit.  Grant put in all the hard yards required and more to get the unit sold.  I am very happy and I believe the purchasers are too.  Grant negotiated with the management of the unit complex in a very careful and considered way which I really appreciated.  I will recommend RE/MAX Bardon to everyone who wants a successful sale or purchase. Cheers, Desi & Lizzie

Totally professional with a great attention to detail.  I have no hesitation in recommending Grant Penrose  –  The complete package in all aspects of real estate sales.  I have sold several properties in recent years all agents were good – Grant I have no suggestions you have excelled together in all ways. Sheryl

Grant Penrose was the real estate agent that sold me my property in Brassall, Ipswich.  It is without reservation that I report Grant was a pleasure to deal with.  It should be stated that this was my first home buy and Grant was always ready to answer the myriad of questions I had with regard to my purchase.  It is without hesitation that I recommend Grant Penrose as an intelligent, honest, helpful and courteous real estate salesperson who is prepared to go the extra distance to facilitate a relaxed and trouble free property purchase. Harry

Christina & Grant give full & professional service to the task of handling your property when selling or buying.  The management team are always helpful, professional and pleasant. James & Rhonda – Hunter Street, Brassall

Just Brilliant.  Grant and the team were professional, hard working and caring.  I cannot speak too of Grant who was also available at all times. Valerie – Buscall Court, Sinnamon Park

From the very outset I found the service provided by Christina and Grant to be totally professional, friendly and positive, always punctual, always cheerful and always ready to go the extra mile.  Doing business with Christina and Grant was a pleasure! Phyllis – Waverley Road, Taringa (Seller)

We found Grant always professional & approachable.  His communication was faultless.  The Admin support was excellent. Graham & Diane –  Chasely Street, Auchenflower

Grant and Christina were outstanding in their salesmanship with me. They remembered me in past auctions and rang me as soon as possible when a suitable property was available. They were always polite and ensured the after sale service was matched. Katrina – Greenwood Close, Moggill

Grant has been a huge support to us when purchasing our first Australian property. Communication with Grant has been first class and I would recommend them to anyone that is either selling or buying a property.  Thank you for everything. Anne-Marie & Michael – Kewarra St, Kenmore

We transferred from interstate some 20 years ago & were fortunate enough to meet Christina when we were looking to find a suitable property to purchase.  Our expectations were exceeded thanks to Christina’s untiring efforts. In the ensuing years we kept in contact both personally & for subsequent property transactions.  It was therefore no contest when we found ourselves in a position of needing somebody we could trust & rely on to take over our latest sale.  From the outset, nothing was too much for Christina who was ably assisted by Grant & their team of dedicated Professionals at Remax Profile Real Estate…  The “magic makeover” of the interior of the house, the photography & all of the finite details associated with presenting the best product for the market in a very short turnaround period was nothing short of outstanding.  Christina’s calm professionalism again shone through & within a very short period the house had sold.  Kate & I are proud to have made the right choice again & have no hesitation in recommending Christina & her team to any prospective Vendors &/or Purchasers. Ray & Kate – Kenmore, July 2016

I highly recommend RE/MAX Bardon and their representative Grant Penrose to get as your selling agent. Grant is a true professional and a very nice person – he’s totally honest and is strong in character. I had never met Grant until he made contact with me; he was always calm, respectful, focused and delivered upon all commitments. Regardless of my challenges in the process of the selling, he worked with me to deliver an excellent result.  Many thanks for all your hard work & commitment.  Very best regards,  Eddie – Keating St, Indooroopilly
