" How sad we are to be leaving our beautiful home and so many happy memories. It took time and patience but we eventually sold and couldn’t be happier with the time spent with Joan, Deb and Scott from King & Heath, Paynesville. We formed a strong relationship and we’re happy to report that Joan found our buyers. We have met them and are delighted to hand over our property to a lovely family who will grow to love our lakeside home.

We’re off to Melbourne to be near our family.

THANK YOU to Joan and team.
" By Sue and John Blackman

" Dear Joan,
I wanted to write to you to put on record how pleased we were with the beginning to end process in the purchase of our new property at Newlands Arm.
Our search had been quite a long one and finding the right property in the right location was critical for us. As you know we were on a tight schedule and your assistance in ensuring a quick completion whilst always mindful of the need for you to act in the best interests of both seller and buyer, our experience found you to be extremely professional and admirable.
The complete experience of our dealings with yourself and King & Heath Paynesville really was "First Class." Your own very special attention to detail was most noticeable particularly the consideration to new residents into this area.
We would also like to include that from a professional and personal point of view from individuals who have made several real estate purchases around the globe our experience with you has been exemplary.
We would not hesitate to recommend you to any potential buyer or seller. Your own personal knowledge of the area added significantly to the "First Class" experience. You are a credit to the industry.
" By Lorraine Jones

We will most certainly recommend the services of Joan and the team at King & Heath to anyone who might be thinking of selling or buying. " By Cheryl and Peter Kerr
" Selling and buying properties for the most is an emotional roller coaster, for us this process has been eased by the professional Paynesville team who have kept us up to date. They are realistic, trustworthy and most of all fun to deal with.
With Joan Carter at the helm and her ability to create a business that houses the best staff and her own fantastic personality and numerous credentials this has been to our benefit.
Thank you.

" We feel that perhaps with all the events in our lives since November that we have never really expressed our deep and sincere gratitude for the efforts you both made in such a successful sale of our home. Having the windows cleaned was absolutely a life-saver and we do say it was all wonderful. " By Jeanette and Rex Blennerhasset
" To Joan & Deb,
Thank you for the incredible amount of hard work you and your team have put into selling the property. You have gone above and beyond. We cannot thank you enough! Please have a celebratory drink on us!
Thanks.
