" 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 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
" I was looking at properties in the Paynesville area. I saw one I liked in Eagle Point on the King & Heath website so I called in to their office in Paynesville. I was introduced to Joan Carter. My immediate impression of Joan was the consummate professional. She asked me about my ideas of what I was looking for and where. When I told her what I was looking at in Eagle Point she also mentioned another property close by. I looked at both properties and ended up buying the property she mentioned. To sum up: Joan was very accommodating and professional - I would highly recommend her if you're in the market. Thanks Joan! " By Lance Moore
" We both want to thank you for selling our house on 45 Western boulevard, Raymond Island. We are very happy with the result and with you. Thanks again. " By Adolf & Lisa Popko
