    Hi everyone, recently had a marriage breakdown and wanting to sell an IP in Brisbane area. Can anyone recommend a good agent to sell the property?

    Will depend on the area. The friendliest and most helpful I've met recently are:
    Aaron Woolard does New Farm. Charmaine Henrickson is also really genuine. My gf likes those two too she was dealing with them independently. I also like Luke Croft. He takes a lot of time with people but he moves a lot of properties.
    All of this is from buying point of view.

    I have met some real mean antisocial and quite dishonest ones. A lot more than I would have expected.

    Sorry to hear about the breakup. For an agent it depends on which area the property is in.

    Thanks RPI. Such is life I suppose. The property is in a suburb called Fitzgibbon Chase (Fitzgibbon) about 15ks north of Brisbane.

    Hi Whitecat, The property is in a suburb called Fitzgibbon Chase (Fitzgibbon) about 15ks north of Brisbane. Do you know of any agents that service that area?

    @RAAFie whatever you do, dont let the agent (and im not saying you would of anyway) market it as "got to go" or 'distrssed seller" and the likes of that BS.

    Even this shall pass my freind. Life will get brighter.

    You might save yourself the commission by posting the deets here? (Is that allowed?)

    Or try to sell it to a buyers agent..

    I tried to do this recently.. Unfortunately the buyers agents I contacted weren't interested. I then listed it with a selling agent and it sold through a buyers agent :rolleyes: Looks like I didn't contact enough of them..

    Thanks Whitecat. I appreciate your advice. This will not be a forced sale. Rather hold it until it sells for the market price.
