Hi Vic, After 7 years of doing business with Real Estate City it is time for us to part. I would just like to say it has been an absolute pleasure working with yourself and your team over the years. I don't think there would ever be another company that could take money off me for this long and me still be happy about it haha. In recent times I have been most impressed with your team. Jenni has worked miracles for me pricing and managing works to get my property up to a sale able standard. I have a few properties under management around the country and I can honestly say that I have never dealt with a property manager as switched on as Jen. I felt very comfortable having Lynn on the job selling the property for me. I believe she has the perfect attitude to fill her sales role as she demonstrated to me when it came time to negotiate the sale of the property. Thanks team and I wish you all great success in the future!! Regards Kris
100 Mt Ridley Road, Mickleham
Vic Spano has successfully sold land for the Cockram Group for about 30 years. His speciality is the land to the north of Melbourne including Gladstone Park, Westmeadows, Greenvale, Yuroke and Mickleham. His knowledge of these areas and the people who live here is second to none. We recently appointed Vic to market and sell 100 Mt Ridley Road, Mickleham (a Victorian period home on 22 acres) because of this expertise. His attention to detail and that of Vic Spano Junior produced excellent brochures, personalised viewings and punctuality alternating another very good sale for us. We are pleased to recommend Vic Spano. Regards, David Cockram.

Dear Vic, we would like to thank you personally and to express our appreciation for the outstanding result you have achieved on the sale of the above mentioned property. Through the whole process we found you to be very professional, very attentive and your extensive knowledge of the market and your communications in the leader to the sale with offers coming in made us feel very confident in reaching the sale we were after. At auction you were able to sell the above mentioned property and reached a price far beyond what we imagined. Your skills at auction were seen that you understood the bidders for what they were after. You worked very hard to reach an outcome that none of us expected, well above our reserve price.
A special thank you also goes to the staff for their professionalism they displayed behind the scene and during the auction. Their hard work and commitment also helped us in achieving this excellent result.
We have no hesitation in recommending you to others who wish to sell their home. And we have no hesitation in contacting you in the near future should another situation rise. Yours sincerely, Chris and Anne Borg.

Dear Vic, I would like to thank Real Estate City and especially you for your efficient, professional and personal attention given to the quick sale of my home. I was impressed from our first meeting with the friendly and professional way that the sale of my home was handled. At all times I was kept informed as to the interest of my property. I was given plenty of notice for any walk through inspections and the needs of my family were taken into consideration when arranging inspections. Having never sold a house before I did not know what to expect and Vic made sure that I fully understood the process at all times. I would have no hesitation in recommending Vic and the Real Estate City team to anyone wanting to sell their home. Thank you for all your assistance. Kindest Regards, Sandra Mcloon

Hi Vic, now that the dust has settled and I am comfortable in my new home I wanted to personally thank you for selling our home. I had 3 agents come and appraise my home, the reason I chose you Vic was because you were the most passionate and dedicated and had a great reputation in the market place. You were always punctual and made certain that we were always up to date with what was happening right up until the auction. You were at every open house (like you promised) and was in constant communication with the feedback and offers made. Selling your house can be so daunting, but you made it so easy and seemless. I was so impressed that I had you to sell my mother’s home months later. She also had nothing but pros for you and your professional team. Thanks again, I will certainly be recommending you to friends and family in the future. Regards Kathy and Michael Muscat.

We write to thank and congratulate Real Estate City for the exceptional job they recently did on the sale of our property at 29 Glenmore Place, Greenvale.
We appointed Vic and the team as we had monitored their results in the premium end of the market and saw that they achieved some phenomenal things over many years. We did have options of other agents but we liked the fact that Real Estate City was a creative boutique business where we had direct dealings with the owner and auctioneer himself.
Upon our meeting, my husband and I were blown away by the passion, enthusiasm and knowledge he had. The marketing plan that he had suggested we use included double page spread in the local paper, awesome video production and social media marketing which were all things foreign to us but proved to be nothing short of genius.
Inspections were well patrolled with the assistance of Shirley Collins ensuring that all buyers were followed up. We were given constant feedback and particularly the one on one meetings covered everything we needed to know. The vendor reports sent out weekly were thorough and unveiled perfectly how the campaign was progressing.
Come auction day although we were anxious, Vic’s genuine assurances were comforting and helped us to know we were going to be alright. Within 15 minutes of the auction commencing it was all over ...after 67 inspection and 7 bidders competing for the property we sold for a result that we never would have dreamt of.
We would highly recommend anyone thinking of selling to use the services of Real Estate City. They were authentic, hardworking, creative and the best people we have had the pleasure of dealing with. Thanks Again

Dear Vic and Team
Lyn and I wanted you to know how pleased we were with the service you provided in the sale of our property late last year. You will remember the care with which we selected your agency to act for us, in fact spanning a number of years leading up to when we put the property on the market. Our decision to appoint you was vindicated by the process you brought to bear and of course the excellent final outcome.
We noted the positive attributes you brought to each of the vital steps in the marketing process:
•Preparing our home for sale,
•The marketing and advertising campaign involving a range of media,
•The “Open for Inspections”, and finally
•The actual auction day itself.
In preparing our home for presentation, your general advice on landscaping, decluttering, general styling and the detailed styling completed by Adriatic Furnishings was all brilliant. The styling provided by Stav complimented and lifted each room in our home. Your ongoing encouragement as to the work we were doing along the way keeping the place immaculate inside and outside was also appreciated.
The advertising campaign involving the presentation of still photography, video photography, a brilliant inclusion of aerial views of the neighbourhood and our property taken by overflying a drone across the estate, superb verbal presentation in an on line video by Vic Spano and carefully constructed written description of the property all provided for a sparkling and comprehensive outline of the attributes of 5 Briar Place. A variety of online presentations complemented a wide reach of print media beyond the immediate community which were all outstanding and brought wide commendation and attendance.
The marketing campaign was short, sharp and shiny and involved regular analysis of responses on line from particularly www.realestate.com, www.domain.com.au (Platinum listing), social media including Facebook and Twitter, a dynamic approach to boosting and regularly refreshing the online presentation had real impact. In addition, traditional methods of marketing a property via letter box drops, DL drop cards distributed to local businesses, a compressive four page foldout brochure, personal invitations, and Vic’s attention to emailed advice to possible bidders was very effective. The location onsite of two large illuminated For Sale Street Photo Boards with flags attached captured passing traffic and pedestrians along the walkways. We appreciated the regular weekly meetings and the daily feedback Vic and his team gave us on progress during the campaign. The regular flow of data managed by Vic’s Office Manager and Secretary Kendall Delaney was brilliant.
Opens for Inspection (eight in all plus further private inspections) were well attended by over sixty groups. Vic’s team reported visitor remarks on the immaculate presentation of the home and his team also provided valuable insights and helpful advice to potential purchasers. Vic always had at least three staff members on site for the Opens covering greeting, recording contact details, ground floor, upstairs and outdoors including the workshop. Pointer boards, sandwich boards and REC kite flags in the streets nearby all assisted visitors find our property.
Auction Day dawned fine, still and sunny. (Vic claimed he even organized the weather!). A large crowd of over 70 visitors turned out and enjoyed the coffee cart provender. The final Open for Inspection drew many complements and Vic had his whole team on board with the exception of Kendall who monitored proceedings from her hotel in Bali. Scott Darmanin, Lynn Hill, Shirley Collings, Theresa Hawkins and Kelly Marks all helped manage the lead up to the Auction. Vic gave a lucid, concise and outstanding expose of our home and conducted a positive and effective auction in his usual and inimitable style. We achieved an outstanding result with five bidders culminating in a fair price for we as vendors and the successful bidders as purchasers. The post auction signing contracts was very happy all around.
We would highly recommend Real Estate City Pty Ltd lead by Vic Spano Jnr, Director and a great sales team. They are each professionals, always well presented, patient, positive, insightful, open and honest, well prepared, knew our property and its attributes and kept us regularly “in the loop”.
We done and thanks Vic and team at REC

We were introduced to Lynn by a mutual friend, as we had decided to sell our investment property. Once we had given all the information required to get the ball rolling to sell our property, Lynn had arranged everything from the tenancy arrangements, to the auction listing, photos , conveyancer contacts,etc etc with haste, skill and professionalism. We wanted our tenants to feel comfortable during the process and that is exactly what Lynn did, our property was put on the market, had two inspections and has sold prior to Auction within 19 days!
Lynn you are an amazing agent, highly professional, very caring and a lot of fun.
Thankyou for all your hard work and a big Thankyou to your team for managing the rental tenancy.
We will be in touch when looking to buy/sell our next venture!
Wish we could do more than just write a review to thank you.
All the best
Deborah and Grant Humphrey
