GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND!
Madeleine and her team were in charge of selling my (ageing) Mum’s house. They were great agents in terms of “agent’s work” but they truly went above and beyond their scope.Angela KearneyVendor Review - Recommended
Mum’s house needed a bit of TLC so they arranged to get quotes for the work to be done and then made the arrangements. If Mum wasn’t going to be home, they even offered to be there for the tradespeople when they arrived.
Another time after an open house, Mum mentioned that she needed petrol but couldn’t fill up during the open home because she went out leaving her purse in the house. So the agent then took Mum’s car out and filled it up for her before he finished up for the day.
While getting the right price for your house is important, never underestimate good old fashioned customer service. Hicks Real Estate gives you this in spades!
AN AGENT WHO BECAME A FRIEND
Our high degree of satisfaction with Madeleine’s real estate business is related to her good people skills, her sound knowledge of real estate dealings and her demonstrated emphasis on teamwork.Noel AdsettVendor Review - Recommended
Madeleine showed empathy in her dealings with us as she realised our feelings at the various stages of the sale. We appreciated her efforts to keep in touch with information and advice.
Sound Knowledge of Real Estate Dealings
Madeleine’s experience in real estate is obvious. She gave us a feeling of confidence with her advice and suggestions. She has built up a good reputation in Everton Park because of her successful and honest business principles.
A team of efficient people operate in Madeleine’s busy office in Trouts Road. They communicate well with one another. In our dealings with all the team members we found they were all conversant with our sale and the stage it had reached in the process. They all acted with courtesy and friendship.

Thank you Madeleine .
GREAT AGENT AND RESULT
We first engaged with Madeline 5 1/2 years ago when she sold us this property. Each year we got an anniversary card for our purchase. The whole process of buying from Madeline to this little touch made it a no brainer to sign up with her to sell our property as she had the knowledge of what the property use to be like and she could see what we had put into the property. Within the first week we had a bite but it was week 2 that proved to be the winner and things quickly moved to getting it under contract. Thank you Madeline when we return to Brisbane we will come and see you about our next home. The BakersKellieVendor Review - Recommended
