"Jane Caulfield was exceptional.
Jane carried out an exceptional campaign leading up to the sale of my house.
First she identified when to sell and set up key dates of “open for inspection” and the date and time of the auction, and the expected price range. Next she organized small family businesses to get my house ready for sale including a gardener, a home sorting specialist, and a momma, poppa, and the kids cleaning service who did a stunning spring clean and then weekly cleaning.
During the campaign she followed up on the people who inspected the house providing exceptional feedback in writing each week keeping me in the picture and facilitating my setting a very realistic reserve. A problem arose the day before the auction and Jane organized a tradesman who fixed the problem the night before the auction!
The proof of the pudding is in the eating. There was a magic moment in the auction when Jane entered my house to tell me that the price now exceeded my reserve. Naturally I said “The house is now on the market”.
I was so pleased!
"It is no secret that Jane Caulfield is a great agent. She worked tirelessly from the word go and followed through with great result. He charming and warm personality is an added bonus.
Thank you Jane for the tips and advice for presenting the property to the marketing strategy that brought amazing result. I wish you all the best for the future.

"Jane proved right from the beginning that she was very driven and committed to the whole process of selling our house and getting the best possible price for us. Daily communication, feedback and advice kept us on track so we knew where we stood at each step of the way throughout the campaign. A slight change in the marketplace proved to be a challenge, which was out of everyone’s control. Even though our house was not sold at auction Jane continued to work tirelessly to find our buyer! With endless follow up phone calls from Jane and many extra "open for inspections" our house finally sold 4 days after auction. We must say that the price we finally got was slightly lower than expected, but in comparison with the houses that have sold there after we feel we achieved, with the guidance of Jane, a fantastic result.

"Selling my home of 26 years was an emotional and stressful time. Jane did a tremendous job by keeping me informed every step of the way and achieved an excellent result. Jane was also very helpful when I was looking for a new home and attended an auction on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Jane's services again and would highly recommend anyone looking for an agent to contact Jane.

"I would like to thank Jane Caulfield and the staff at Noel Jones Balwyn for their professional and caring manner in which they showed whilst selling my home. Jane's honesty and reliability were second to none as was her vast knowledge of the property market. Jane was wonderful to deal with and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone considering selling their property.
"Our introduction to Jane was from her random call about two years ago, at a time when we were not planning to sell. We were taken by her enthusiasm and how well she would be able to help...if and when the occasion arrived. The odd follow on calls followed, and we had no hesitation in contacting her when we wanted to move. It was an excellent decision, and Jane fulfilled her every promise. It was all we had hoped for, with minimum hiccups and a maximum result. Her idea of staging was a winner certainly boosting the end result and her communication skills in pulling it all together was first class. A top performer!
Don & Pauline McKenzie"
"We had been discussing with Jane for a few months our desire to sell and move properties. Immediately when she came to appraise the property she quickly gave us a list of easily and cost effective improvements which in her belief would make the most impact.
From her experience preparing houses for sale prior to her real estate career she really has a feel for the types of things that appeal most to buyers.
As soon as the time came for us to take the property to market Jane was with us 100% of the way listening to our needs and working with them to tailor a solution that worked for both of us.
Throughout the campaign she would keep regular contact. This included coming to the property to check on preparing progress, calls confirming the results of inspections and communication regarding potential buyers, price points and offers.
Jane methodically plans the entire campaign and helped guide us through each stage from pre-market preparation, inspections, pre-auction game plans through to auction day.
Her enthusiastic and tell it as it is attitude really helped us with no unrealistic expectations or sugar coating of the situation meant we were able to enter auction day cool headed.
Finally the well above expectation result of our sale really shows that her methodical, planned and genuine attitude to the campaign makes the biggest life decision as stress free as it can be.
We highly rate Jane and would recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home.
"Jane is a very hard working, bright, energetic, positive and vivacious person. She is always extremely efficient and "sweats the details". She is almost always available on the telephone and if not, will call straight back. She goes over and above the call of duty and worked very hard to get the highest price for my villa unit. Extremely happy customer!
"Jane is very supportive and highly engaging for both vendors and buyers. Jane took us through the sale process from start to finish with a very solid strategy and kept us in the loop with feedback and updates at every step: her communication skills are exemplary. We realised our aims with the sale of our much loved home with much thanks and appreciation for Jane's work.

"I can honestly say that Jane did her best for me. She is a nice person who connects well with people & achieved the result I hoped for which was the sale of my home & purchase of my future home. Noel Jones are fortunate to have her on their team!
"Jane's approach to marketing my property was spot on, She had client's that she knew would be interested in my property. The property was on the market for just under 2 weeks and the best offer by far excessed my expectations. Jane explained the selling process to me in a fashion that was very professional and pleasant. I would have no problems in recommending Jane to friends in the future. Jane did a great job in selling my property and she got top dollar for it.
"Jane sold my premises in 10 days under private terms. In that short span she ensured the best outcome I could ever have expected, and I am grateful for the good fortune of meeting her as much as the sale price. Jane with tenacity and unwavering warmth and sincerity was considerate and supportive. Her grasp of how to market and sell my home reflects a perceptive and strong knowledge of vendors and she is astute in selecting suitable buyers from her strong client base. Jane is like bamboo ~ a blend of grace and resilience. She is the most professional agent I have met.
"Jane is an exceptional estate agent. She knows the market well and not only maintained good communication with us throughout the entire sales process but also with our existing tenant. She was polite, attentive and made sure to message and call us after every inspection. We found Jane to be approachable and easily contactable, which is probably why she was able to draw so much interest to our property when we listed it on the market. All in all Jane went above and beyond and worked very hard to achieve the best outcome for us and we would highly recommend her to any of our friends and family.
"Jane was extremely proactive and committed to finding the perfect property for us, which she did! She was efficient and ensured we were promptly informed on properties available in the area we were looking. Our dealings with Jane were open and genuine made easy through her very warm and personable demeanour. She was very understanding and supported us negotiating an ideal outcome for our circumstances. We couldn't be happier.
