Both Colin and I would like to thank you in writing for all your effort in selling our home.
There are many things we could write about, however to us, three things especially stand out:
1. House sold in under 2 weeks - wonderful, as it eliminated all those
Open for Inspections and considerable stress for me.
2. Your Professional but deceivingly relaxed approach is refreshing and different
from other agents. We watched the buyers relate to you in an easy and approachable
3. You worked for us – the Vendor – in obtaining the best possible price.
I must stress that we both felt very comfortable that you held our interests
as our selling Agent. In previous experiences we found this to be very rare.
Your communication to us via phone and through emails and texts kept us up to date on all enquiries. Nothing was ever too much trouble and your time was always made available. We most definitely felt we were kept ‘in the loop’ at all times.
More importantly, we felt you appreciated our home and the care we have put into it and realising the best way to market it. We never felt pressured to lower our price and we are extremely happy with the outcome.
For all of the above we are truly grateful and would have no hesitation in recommending you to future clients. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need to use us as a referral.
You never know Mark – you may see us again should our plans change!!!
Our very best regards
Sincerely mobile 0407718610

Re: Sale of 82 Northgateway, Langwarrin
I would like to personally thank you for the wonderful job you did in selling our house at 82 Northgateway, Langwarrin. You made a very confident, verbal guarantee to us that you would sell our house within two weeks of placing it on the market and to have it sold within one week, within our asking price range, was an outstanding result.
Whilst we were surprised with the quick sale, we were even more surprised to have 24 potential buyers through the house during this period, producing 2 other offers also. Your large database certainly worked a treat! The advertising was easily organised and presented to a first class standard. A special thank you must also go to your photographer as the advertising photos looked amazing – they probably made the house look better than it actually did.
It was fantastic the way you kept us in touch with everything along the way, we felt comfortable dealing with you and asking questions because you made it feel like it was no trouble to bother you at any hour, of any day. Your hard work and professionalism is a true credit to yourself.
Best of luck for the future,

To whom it may concern,
From the moment we first met with Mark we knew he was the man to sell our home.
Mark’s ‘what you see is what you get’ approach was refreshing and his passion for his work was truly evident. Mark also presented an honesty that, in 15 years of buying and selling homes, we had never encountered. This made our decision to list with Mark an easy one.
Throughout the process of selling our home, Mark kept us completely informed and updated. Mark in fact was so thorough, we often joked about him sending us everything twice!
In an uncertain housing market Mark managed to bring in many prospective buyers across four house open for inspections. Mark continually went above and beyond to ensure we achieved a great result, including having his gorgeous wife Lynn attend our opens as well to add ‘the female touch’ to our homes appeal.
Our home was one of unique appeal. A colonial style home with an old fashioned feel. Buyer feedback was varied and we were unsure as to whether we would be able to achieve the price we required in the current housing market. Despite this, Mark continued to think ‘outside the square’ and never once pressured us into lowering our price expectation or accepting a lower offer. Mark continued to strategize with us on how we could market our home differently, but always respected and carried through our final wishes on each decision.
Finally, after 4 weeks on the market, we received 2 offers and our home was sold. We achieved a price and conditions we were happy with and a super quick settlement date!
We would have no hesitation in recommending Mark’s services to any prospective seller and, should we ever look to sell another of our homes in future, we would defiantly list with Mark again!
Thank you Mark for helping us move on to the next phase of our life.
Jacinta and Mick Cannon
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
When I first met Mr. Mark Burke of Century 21 I recognised a very thorough individual with the calm confidence that arises from many years of experience.
He has a genuinely compassionate and understanding nature that inspires trust, and although he took time to diligently advise me of all options available, I knew that I could trust his judgment implicitly, and as a result, I left all arrangements to his discretion.
The outcome …..
The Frankston rental property sold almost immediately ….. and I was not surprised.
