What Our Clients Say About Us 

Testimonials
Douglas McQuat (March 2024) – “This was our first move in 34yrs so we were very nervous but everything went quickly and well leaving us to only worry about the actual physical move.  Premier made the necessary processes easy and understandable. They also dealt with us as people not just a client, this made us feel so much better.  It was great to know that we were in the hands of people who cared.” Douglas McQuat (March 2024) – “This was our first move in 34yrs so we were very nervous but everything went quickly and well leaving us to only worry about the actual physical move.

"We put our property on the market with Premier just prior to lockdown but subsequently withdrew it. We were very happy with how Alan handled the situation at that time as well as the marketing. We originally went to them through the recommendation of a mortgage consultant.

We loved the Facebook countdown! The photography and virtual tour were first class. The photographer obviously took a great pride in her work and the results spoke for themselves.

You contacted people who had shown an interest in similar properties and we actually had 3 viewings booked before it was released. Bartek did wonderfully well in convincing the buyer what to offer.

The service was excellent in particular Bartek who showed potential buyers around and Alan who offered great advice on the deal.

This was our first move in 34yrs so we were very nervous but everything went quickly and well leaving us to only worry about the actual physical move.  Overall, we felt very pleased and relieved.

Would certainly recommend. Premier made the necessary processes easy and understandable. They also dealt with us as people not just a client, this made us feel so much better.

It was great to know that we were in the hands of people who cared."

"Great to deal with, nice people and on the ball. We had an ex-rental property to sell, and had to decide whether to 'love it' or 'list it' in it's current condition. Katie & Alan were great and understood our situation, we decided to try the property on the market and discussed a fair price for the 'list it' option.

All went well and the property sold quickly.  Can't thank them enough for their advice and support.  Felt happy and looked after.  Would definitely recommend this company and would use them again."

Customer service was fantastic from Katie's first visit to being kept updated by Eleze and Paula.  Fully trusted them and was kept well informed.

Had a few wobbles myself but the girls restored my faith in the process.  Alan also quelled my fears when selling my mum's house. It was a stressful time, but I felt very supported.

Liam Brown (October 2023) – “I spent nine years as a tenant with them before buying my first home under their guidance.  I cannot recommend Premier Properties highly enough whether you are renting, buying, selling or letting and I wish them many successful years ahead.” Liam Brown (October 2023) – “I spent nine years as a tenant with them before buying my first home under their guidance. I cannot recommend Premier Properties highly enough whether you are renting, buying, selling or letting and I wish them many successful years ahead.”Estate Agency & Lettings Client | Buyer & Tenant | Google Review - https://g.co/kgs/5qxU47

"After a very unpleasant experience with another well-know Perth estate agent, I found Premier Properties. I knew immediately that I did not want to deal with any other company. I have followed their development since their early days in York Place with interest and admiration as they have assembled a wonderfully talented and supportive team. Their incomparable synthesis of personal and professional qualities has always been central to their dealings with clients. So it was with good reason that I spent nine years as a tenant with them before buying my first home under their guidance. Although I could have bought sooner had I gone elsewhere, it was the expert assistance I could rely on from Premier Properties that convinced me to stay with them. From start to finish, the purchase process was as efficient and stress-free as I could have hoped. I cannot recommend Premier Properties highly enough whether you are renting, buying, selling or letting and I wish them many successful years ahead."

"A family member recommended you.

Excellent marketing, really showed the property in a good light.  I was kept informed of any viewings and the process. The staff were always a pleasure to talk to

Excellent dealings with potential buyers.  Initially I thought the offer was slightly low and discussed with Paula who contacted the buyer and returned to me with a better offer which I accepted.

I felt I was in good and safe hands which was a great comfort to us as we were selling our late father’s property.  I would recommend as it’s hassle free and PPP do the viewings which we were very appreciative of.

Just a great local company who are happy to talk to you which is rare these days."

"I liked the fact that the business owners met me at the property to discuss the potential sale. PPP sold a previous property for me very successfully.

All presentation material was very good, especially the interior pics and virtual tour.  It looked great online.  Good service and so convenient for me with PPP doing accompanied viewings.

Negotiation very straightforward, with an offer and agreement within minutes of each other and a sale within two weeks.

Very pleased with the experience.  Would recommend and have done so already.  Professional service and good local knowledge on pricing and strategy."
