We've sold with Takeala before, so of course we knew she was the only agent for our next sale. it was a bit of a tricky situation this time though, with tenants who didn't want to move and didn't want the property sold. and we needed a miracle sale, before Christmas. After many delays caused by the tenant, Takeala commenced the preparation for sale in her efficient and methodical way. she worked with the tenants and various tradespeople to bring the property to market. she launched with a VIP open home, making the home look so good we wanted to move back in! then takeala negotiated multiple offers while she was overseas, achieving at the top of the appraisal range. yes, with Takeala, we achieved our miracle sale. It was under contract before Christmas, and settled in the first week of January. will we sell with Takeala again? yes!ROISIN T. & BLAIR E.70 SCHOONER CIRCUIT MANLY WEST
“Thanks for the great outcome” I have been interacting with Takeala and Black Diamond Group for several years, first as the property manager, and then seller, of my investment property. Over the campaign to sell my property, and the coordination of work to ready it for sale, Takeala has been nothing short of amazing. Her guidance throughout the period has kept me, remote to the property, fully appraised and advised on what was happening. The outcome of the sale itself well exceeded my expectations in selling price, all of which I attribute to Takeala's professionalism and her ability to remain customer focused on the best interest for me. Thank you Takeala - you've made me a very happy seller.LEIGH HAIG16 ELCOCK AVE CRESTMEAD
It is with deep appreciation and pleasure that I advise that my appointed agent – Takeala – has acted on my behalf with exceptional understanding and invaluable support in successfully carrying out the sale of my property at Manly West. She especially attentive in dealing with the many side issues involved in the negotiations including many which would normally be outside the responsibilities of am agent, even to the extent of attending to details I had overlooked post sale. I would unhesitatingly recommend her to any subsequent client seeking to expedite and conclude a sale of property with the least amount of pressure and total security.LAURIE ROSENBLUMMANLY WEST

The decision to buy or sell real estate is not something that is entered into lightly. Real estate, by definition, has an emotive as well as a financial consideration that needs to be factored into the equation. Whether a vendor or a purchaser, one has to give careful consideration to the process and a little qualified guidance from a Realtor to advise on the finer details, and to facilitate the process, is essential. On this occasion it was Takeala. We recently sold at Melville Terrace, in Wynnum. The property had been in the family since the early 1930s and was a home to three generations of the family. For the last few years the property had been on the rental market, and as property in the area soared in value, particularly those with spectacular panoramic views of Moreton Bay and the Islands as this one has, the family decided to sell; the rent/asset return ratio placed it in the poorly performing investments category. Marketing of the property for auction was very well done. The advertising was effective and accurately descriptive of the property. On a very regular basis we would meet with our agent Takeala and be advised of the placement of advertisements in local and the citywide press. We were constantly advised of the interest in the property, and were able to distinguish between those with a genuine interest in the property and others who were just satisfying curiosity. On Auction Day there was considerable interest and spirited bidding with a successful outcome. We congratulate the purchasers and wish them well with their new property. As vendors we are satisfied with the outcome and would recommend Takeala to others. Her attention to us was greatly appreciated.TONY FISHER
My experience with Real Estate Agents is not something that is common to me but on this occasion I was very pleased to be introduced to Takeala. Given the current economic climate and the falling market, Takeala managed to sell our house for a price that both I and my husband were extremely pleased with and to top it off she did so, only after 1 week of it going onto the market. This can only be attributed to her honesty and the guidance she gave my husband and I when going through the sale and advertising processes. There was not a question we posed to Takeala she could not answer which we found very helpful. Takeala also went out of her way to arrange appointments with Real Estate Agents in Hervey Bay where we eventually purchased a property. If the need arises in the future for the purchase of a property, we would have no hesitation to seek out Takeala and we have the intention to recommend her to anyone we know who wishes to sell a property.TONY AND MARIANNE RIGNEY
During the process of purchasing my new house I was pleased to be dealing with Takeala. She offered encouragement in the arduous process of selling my own house and kept me updated regarding price changes on the house I was interested in buying. She made signing documents easy by coming to my house, and she was always available when I called (or she would call me back quickly if I missed her). Between selling my old house and moving into my new one I needed somewhere to stay for two months and Takeala found a place for me to rent swiftly and with no hassles, in other words she went out of her way to keep me happy. She is personable, friendly and helpful without being too pushy! I love my new home and am glad Takeala was there to help me get it.J. RESSOMBETHANIA ST, LOTA
Dear Takeala, I would like to thank you for selling our house for us. In this difficult market you negotiated a premium price for us and I believe this was due to the persistence you showed by maintaining contact with the buyer over an extended settlement period, ensuring their commitment to purchasing our property. At open houses you brought a lot of buyers through and this I believe was the reason that you got many private inspections. You always maintained regular and honest feedback and processed the sale with integrity. With your natural and pleasant personality you were a dream to deal with. I have told all of my friends when they are ready to sell their home that they should contact you.ROBYNE COTTERILL
Hello Takeala, Wayne and all the team at Black Diamond. Firstly I would like to sincerely thank you for selling my property so rapidly. Your professionalism and service is the finest that I have ever experienced. I am still having difficulty comprehending how easy your team made the situation for myself as a seller. To achieve the price that I wanted and to have all matters relating to the sale handled whilst I was living in another part of the state was just brilliant. Never did I think that my property would sell so quickly with no stress involved whatsoever. I have absolutely no hesitation to recommend your services to anyone who is selling or buying property. Black Diamond Property Group are at the top of their game and provide a service that is second to none. I can't thank you enough for what you have done for my daughter and myself. I wish all at Black Diamond Property Group the best for the future and may your business go from strength to strength as it deserves to. It has been truly overwhelming to have experienced such professionalism, honesty and integrity, again I must say thanks!! Yours sincerely,JOHN AND EMERALD GARRETT
