Client Comments

"We were very fortunate in having BABAK PAYMANI (of Lugtons Real Estate) to act as our agent while selling our property. Always professional, Babak is an experienced real estate practitioner who at all times acts with utmost integrity in his agency role. From the initial appraisal of our property, he provided a realistic and useful price assessment, and in subsequent discussions listened to, and respected, our comments and preferences. He brought well-organised planning skills to our meetings when selecting advertising media to gain maximum exposure to anticipated markets; and his sound advice provided excellent opportunities for wide coverage. Babak’s consideration when organising house viewing visits was much appreciated, and his feedback from interested parties was constructive and helpful. We were very pleased with the outcome of Babak’s skilful negotiations with the prospective buyers, and, too, with his efficiency in fulfilling the subsequent legal requirements. In the lead up to settlement, Babak has ensured that the procedures for completion of formalities have been well communicated to us and to the purchasers, so that both parties are kept clearly informed and can be confident of a satisfactory conclusion to the transaction, in due course. It has been a pleasure to work with Babak during the sale of our property and to have the benefit of his skills and knowledge, and we have thoroughly enjoyed our relationship with him during our journey towards completion. We wish him well in the future."

"Hi Babak, just wanted to say a huge thank you from us. Start to finish so professional and you were so genuine and took care of both vendor and us. This Pizza was great we needed that so much last night we ate about 9pm. The use of the free truck was awesome too. We will definitely be referring you to others and if we sell or purchase another property we will be ringing you."
