"Not once did we feel alone or out of the loop"

We'd like to thank you so very much for selling our property in Bertram. You were with us every step of the way, as promised! Your prompt email & phone replies and enthusiastic outlook made for an extremely stress-free sale. Not once did we feel alone or out of the loop and greatly appreciate your efforts.

Kind Regards,

- Brad Hooper in Bertram

"Dealing with Ross was a pleasure as nothing was too much trouble"

Just a quick thank you to Ross for his great work in selling our deceased parents' property in Palmyra. The whole process from listing to the successful auction was smooth and stress free. Your company obviously has many contacts which was evident in the number of potential purchasers who were present at the auction. Dealing with Ross was a pleasure as nothing was too much trouble and he kept us informed regularly from start to finish. Considering we were living 800km away it was very re-assuring that all aspects of the sale were handled in a caring and professional manner. Mid 2010 was a very difficult time in the real estate market. A thorough advertising campaign, combined with Ross' auctioneering skills, produced a very successful outcome for our family. Many thanks for your friendliness, hard work and the successful sale of our property.

"Our first experience at selling a home was very smooth and stress free!"

"Our first experience at selling a home was very smooth and stress free!"

Many thanks to the whole Calnan team for the thoroughly professional job in marketing and selling our Kensington home which we had lived in for 35 years. From the time the photos were taken to the final handover we felt we were in expert hands. Ross you are such a considerate and easy-going person to deal with and your many years of experience in the industry really shone through.

Obviously this was an emotional time for us, as the house we had moved into in 1979 had become part of us and we had made continual improvements over the years, all the time endeavouring to maintain its integrity and character. Additionally it was the only house we had ever owned, so we were house-selling novices. Ross was onto this straight away - critically analysing what we had to offer to the market and advising us on any small changes we might like to make that would help our house stand out amongst the crowd in that price range - bearing in mind the slight market slump following the end of the WA mining boom.

Ross’ strategy of inviting individual inspections in the first two to three weeks (rather than the traditional "home opens") enabled him to develop relationships with the small group of serious potential buyers from which the eventual buyer emerged. This strategy also revealed general buyers’ expectations and kept us focused on market reality rather than what we thought the house was worth.

All in all our first experience at selling a home was very smooth and stress free!

"Sales Team helped us by giving us countless advice with much patience."

"Sales Team helped us by giving us countless advice with much patience."

We would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to Calnan Property for the professional service they provided during the recent purchase of our new home.

This home was our first home in Australia and we were not quite familiar with the rules and settlement procedure but the Sales Team helped us by giving us countless advice with much patience. They were very keen to keep us informed in all stages of the purchasing process. We would recommend the team at Calnan Property to anyone wishing to sell or purchase a home.

"The service we received was exceptional."

"The service we received was exceptional."

We were introduced to Ross Calnan by a mutual friend a few years ago. We initially met with him to discuss buying an investment property. He understood exactly what we were looking for, so much so that by lunchtime the same day we were at a home open he was hosting and subsequently bought the house by the end of the day!

Last year we moved overseas at very short notice and asked Ross to find us a suitable tenant for our much loved family home. He found us suitable tenants within a few days of advertising and his property management team looked after the house for us in our absence. We were kept informed of any issues that cropped up during the tenancy and they dealt with any problems that occurred with no fuss. We never had to worry about the house while we were away.

We made the decision to sell the house recently and Ross was the obvious choice to sell it for us. He found us a buyer at a price we were happy with, in a difficult market within days of it being advertised. The service we received was exceptional and Ross went out of his way to help us out as we were still overseas. He organised a settlement agent for us, sorted out all the necessary paperwork and when the time came for settlement he organised all last minute repairs for us. His advice during this time was invaluable and we are very grateful for all his help.

I would not hesitate to recommend Ross and his team at Calnan Property for buying, selling or renting property. He made the whole process stress free. We can’t thank him enough and would definitely use him in future for any property transactions we may have in Perth.

"They were honest with me throughout the entire process"

"They were honest with me throughout the entire process"

The sale of my home through Calnan Property was a successful and positive experience. I chose Calnan Property to sell my home because the company did not have the normal traits of a 'stereotypical' agency.

I found they were honest with me throughout the entire process and always acted with the utmost integrity. They also achieved a premium price for my property. I would thoroughly recommend Calnan Property for anyone looking to purchase or sell a property.

I also recommend the Calnan Property rental department to anyone looking to rent their properties. They provide an excellent service managing several of my investments.

"Innovative ideas"

"Innovative ideas"

Thank you for effecting a sale on my property at 37 Moreing Road, Attadale. Although the market for higher end houses had been slow, through your perseverance, tenacity and encouragement, my house sold. I was impressed by the innovative ideas from you to sell the property. I will not hesitate to recommend your company to my friends should they wish to sell their property.


- Maggie in Attadale

"Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

"Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

Thank you Ross, Rhys and the Calnan Team. I cannot possibly speak highly enough of your agency and the effort you put into selling my property in the most difficult Real Estate market for 30 years. From my first meeting with Ross until settlement, you have kept me informed at every juncture, conducted yourselves in an impeccably professional manner and have been upfront and completely honest (something I didn't expect from your industry) all the way. At no point was anything a burden for you (even negotiating with purchasers until 10:30 at night), nor were my requests ever an issue. You always presented all the options, had some very innovative and effective marketing strategies and allowed me to make fully informed decisions without being 'pushy'. I felt that I was in full control with all the facts at hand. Your cool, calm, collected demeanour made all contact an absolute pleasure. Most importantly, you achieved a sale price in excess of what I expected from the market.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

"Professionalism, punctuality and reliability"

"Professionalism, punctuality and reliability"

As a young first time home seller, Calnan property made the sale process easy and stress free. They regularly kept us updated with relevant market information and provided us with creditors terms to prepare our property for sale.

Their personal manner, professionalism, punctuality and reliability made them an absolute pleasure to deal with, and we praise them for their work ethic in every respect. We would personally like to thank all the staff at Calnan Property for their hard work and commitment to achieving our desired outcome, and for making our selling experience as easy and enjoyable as possible.

We have even employed the staff to find us an extra two properties. They will always be our first point of call for any real estate dealings.

"Friendly, professional"

Thank you for the wonderful service you provided when you sold our land and the help you gave us when we were looking for our new house. You were friendly, professional and we would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends.

"Genuineness, honesty and integrity"

"Genuineness, honesty and integrity"

Having decided to put my property in Palmyra up for sale, Calnan Property was my one and only choice of agent. Calnan Property's genuineness, honesty and integrity towards us was such a blessing, and it made an otherwise stressful time a very smooth period.

Calnan's choice of a settlement agent for us was another professional standout on their behalf, as they were extremely helpful also. The staff at Calnan Property all worked to a high standard and we would genuinely recommend the staff at Calnan Property to anyone wishing to use their services.

"If you need a company to deliver they will."

"If you need a company to deliver they will."

I would highly recommend Calnan Property to sell your home for you. From the minute the team walked through the door they talk up your property and make you feel good about selling your home.

There is no negativity about what they do. They are a very professional agency. If you need a company to deliver they will.

"Calnan Property achieved a sale price that was actually higher than the asking price."

"Calnan Property achieved a sale price that was actually higher than the asking price."

Calnan Property worked so hard to sell my property in Mount Pleasant. There were no ‘home opens’, which was great for the tenants, yet Calnan Property achieved a sale price that was actually higher than the asking price.

This was a fantastic outcome. They also kept me up to date with progress throughout the sale process. Calnan achieved a really good, hassle-free outcome for me and I would recommend them, and Calnan Properties, to any prospective seller or purchaser.

"Well above the appraisals we received from other agents."

"Well above the appraisals we received from other agents."

We put our heart and soul into renovating our unit in Palmyra and created a beautiful home. When we came to sell it Calnan Property understood how important it was to us that we got the right buyer at the right price. Our unit was sold in a short time and for a great price - well above the appraisals we received from other agents. We would gladly recommend them to anyone.

"I loved it straight away"

"I loved it straight away"

I recently decided to purchase an apartment around the Mount Pleasant area, and I found Calnan Property had an apartment for sale in Ardross.

I let Calnan Property know that I would like to have something closer to the freeway. Within two weeks, Calnan informed me that a property in Applecross was released for sale. I went to inspect the apartment and I loved it straight away. I put in an offer with Calnan’s guidance, then they did all the hard work for me, and brought me the good news in couple of days.

Once again, thank you so much!! All the best!!
