We first purchased our family home from Janine 17 years ago and when it came to selling our investment property I had no hesitation to using her services again. Our unit sold in 4 weeks and the communication was fantastic. Thanks Janine you know Alderley and surrounding suburbs like no one else.
Gavin & Kylie Christison - Enoggera
We found Janine to be friendly, professional and personable!
Scott Ward & Deborah Thorpe - Enoggera
Janine was the most energized and focused agent we have ever used. Highly recommended.
Geoffrey Snowdon - Enoggera
We’ve dealt with Janine both as a buyer & as a seller. She is professional, honest and responsive. Most importantly, we felt that we could completely trust her throughout the process.
Tim & Emma - Mitchelton
Very helpful in a quick sale. Presented the property to potential buyers without having to take it to market, saving me money. There was a slight problem with contract/settlement date.
Shannon - Gaythorne
From the start, Janine was very approachable and knowledgeable of sales in our area. Throughout a long sales period of our home, which is unusual and not the easiest of floor plans ,she remained positive and changed strategies where warranted to uncover the illusive buyer. She rigorously followed up any possible buyer and was in constant contact giving us their feedback. Our eventual buyer needed time to secure herself in order to purchase our house and during this period Janine stayed in regular contact with her and kept us informed of her position. At the same time she also followed up with other interested parties in the property and followed through to see if they were "the one". We are very happy with the sale and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Janine as an agent and person.
John & Michele Signall - Alderley
Where to even start... Janine just gets it. She does her job meticulously - and I do not say that lightly. I have high expectations of people who perform any job and in the same regard hold equivalent respect for those who take it seriously no matter what it is, what their title, or what industry. Janine has worked with me since April to give me a realistic view on when I could sell my property in QLD (I live in NSW) and what conditions would best help it to sell. She sourced quotes for me, picked up the keys from the rental agency, sorted out the leftover rubbish, sent me updates when renovations were completed... Literally did every single thing that I could not even imagine finding in an agent in Sydney for another property I was trying to sell. I just cannot express to you her professionalism, dedication and 'get the job done' attitude. I only wish Janine existed everywhere in every service industry I have to work with! If you are looking for real numbers, a plan to sell your property and a job that will be done with complete transparency, you can stop looking.
Sonia Hamdard - Alderley
Great service, thorough, immediately looking into any questions or queries.
Mick - Alderley
Janine was the epitome of professionalism and looked after us beautifully- your company should be very proud of Janine.
Peter & Margaret - Alderley
Janine kept us informed and was always available to take our calls (at times after hours). Janine is extremely professional.
Julie & Brad - Alderley
Janine has very good knowledge of the real estate market. She was flexible & understanding of our particular needs. She guided us well & gave realistic advice. Through no fault of her own it took 3 contracts before the property sold, however at no stage did she lose enthusiasm which resulted in a sale we were very pleased with.
Anne-Maree & Michael Byrne - Gaythorne
Janine certainly went that extra mile, first open house on Saturday, worked all day Sunday for a fantastic result. (Sunday was Mother's day, WOW). We would definitely recommend Janine to anyone who was wanting to sell their home.
David & Pam - Alderley
This is our 3rd time selling with Janine over the years and will engage her again in the future. Both Janine and Connie made us felt at ease through our selling process, we knew we were in the best hands. Janine works honestly with both parties, buyer and seller, to get the best result. Thanks for your hard work Janine!
Jesse & Belinda Vuorinen - Enoggera
We were living interstate when we sold our property in Brisbane so we needed an agent we could trust. Janine was fantastic, she took care of everything and got us a price above our expectations. Janine took all the stress out of the sale for us, I would highly recommend her.
Anthony & Nicole - Alderley
We were in correspondence with Janine as she sold to us our first home! Janine was approachable, warm and genuine during the entire process. Janine always made time to assist us with any questions we had and efficiently communicated and stepped us through the whole process. It made what can be a very stressful experience an absolute pleasure and exciting time. Thank you for your help Janine, we love our new home!
Hayley & Matthew - Alderley
I found Janine to be extremely knowledgeable, helpful and with a cheerful manner which inspired confidence. Her appraisal was “spot on” with my property selling at the first open home. I recommend her highly as a person who does far more than required with such good grace.
Vivienne - Enoggera
Very good communication and professional!
Sophie - Newmarket
We met Janine when we bought our house at Alderley. Following this purchase we decided to sell a property at Stafford Heights utilizing Janine as our agent. Janine has incredible market knowledge and the ability to translate this into information that is focussed and relevant to us as sellers. Janine was also very honest with me when it came to positioning my house for sale, which I appreciated very much. As both a buyer and a seller I can say that I have absolute confidence that Janine had our interests in mind and provided a very high quality service to us throughout both processes. I cannot recommend Janine highly enough.
Leanne & Amy - Stafford Heights
Buying property is one of the biggest decisions of your life! Janine was great to deal with & made the decision making process seamless. Her local knowledge, attention to detail and flexibility made the whole process easy. I would highly recommend Janine for all your local real estate needs.
Alana Graham - Enoggera
Just wanted to acknowledge your efforts and success in selling my mother’s residence recently. I was pitched by another agent from McGrath who were extremely keen as well but my instinct proved right in choosing you and the Ray White system. Your honest and constant communication was appreciated not to mention your tireless work ethic in attending ALL the open houses and personally involving yourself in every stage of qualifying and negotiating on my behalf. It was indeed a pleasure doing business.
Janine sold my house 18 years ago and I was so impressed that I approached her to sell my next house. I stayed in touch as I was considering the sale and Janine never put pressure on me to sell when I wasn’t ready. Finally when I was ready to sell Janine managed to secure a deal which I have no doubt was a reflection of her experience, diplomacy and warmth. Janine is an ethical and experienced real estate agent and I have no hesitation in recommending her.
Janine and her team made our purchase a smooth and trouble free process. From loading with the tenants and contractors directly to the quick processing of paperwork and property management. We are very pleased with our purchase and look forward to calling it home soon.
Janine McDonald has credibility and honesty which is missing in many other agents. She understands the market and has worked with both vendors and buyers to understand their needs and wants. Janine is better described as a "property match-maker" - finding the right property for a buyer and the right buyer for the vendor. Selling is stressful and Janine McDonald held our hands and was supportive along the journey which help us manage the trials and tribulations.
Steven & Sam - Alderley
Janine delivered her credibility by speaking the truth to the customer and I feel buying a property from her is a right decision. She is quicker than other agent in terms of the feedback to the customer and helping the discussion between buyer and seller.
Jason - Alderley
Janine was very approachable, knowledgable about the local market & I found her very easy to deal with.
Janine knows the Alderley area well We were confident with her skills Communicates well Purchased the house via Janine and she was a tough negotiator with us!
Damien & Tamra
I had been in contact with Janine for I'm guessing over 12 months. I would ring or she would send me potential properties and I'd write them off in an afternoon. I turned up at an open house that I didn't think I would buy but Janine mentioned another house coming up. We went immediately to check out the property and within an hour we had viewed the property. When we viewed the property we told Janine we wanted to make an offer. The house was meant to go to market the following week but we really didn't want to wait. Janine was successful for securing the deal for us the buyer which was a great offer for the seller which and was market value. Janine new that in the previous 12 months not one property was "right", but this property ticked all the boxes for us. So, we got our house and we are grateful for the effort that Janine went to in securing the deal. I would have no hesitation in recommending Janine McDonald and the effort she made is our purchase.
Alison - Alderley
Janine is a pleasure to deal with. She listens to her clients and then formulates a sales strategy meeting everyone's needs. That said Janine also provides sound advice and viewpoints based on her market expertise and experience to add value to the process. Everything was clearly communicated up front and subsequent plan and strategy were carried through. Janine also maintained very close contact with the vendor and also with her buyers through the sale of this property concluding with a result that everyone was more than happy with. I am confident that we achieved a superior result in the sale of our house in comparison to another agent being involved. I strongly recommend Janine and Ray White to anyone considering the sale of their property.
Nick & Belinda - Alderley
Janine was fantastic to deal with right from the start. She kept in contact with us over a 12 month period leading up to the sale of our property, but she never pestered or pressured us. She is a friendly and approachable agent and was honest and realistic in her appraisal of our property. She handled the sale of our property with great professionalism and timing regarding negotiations. We felt confident with Janine, and the result we achieved was beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend her as an agent and would use her again to sell a property.
Michelle - Alderley
Janine has demonstrated a thorough knowledge of the market in our area. She was professional and proactive in her work to selling Mum's house. She was always courteous and respectful and kept us well informed at every stage of the process.
Jayne & Ann
Janine is a very down to earth agent who made us feel very comfortable in our negotiations. Her communication throughout the process was exceptional. I would highly recommend Janine and will be using her for our upcoming sale.
Amy Hall & Leanne Barbeler - Alderley
She listened and spoke with authority about local area in our discussion.
Garth & Jan Shaw - Alderley
I've known Janine for nearly 20 years and recommend her as a most exceptional agent. Janine is wonderful to work with and goes way beyond the requirements of just selling your property.
Frances Mahon - Kelvin Grove
Throughout the entire process I found Janine's approach reassuring and highly professional. It was truly pleasure to have purchased a property that she was selling.
Jane Sexton - Kelvin Grove
After more than a year looking for the perfect residence, it was a pleasure to deal with an agent that is ethical in dealing with the buyer (and seller), realistic in the features of a property and proactive in taking offer to the seller and negotiations. I would have no hesitation to recommend Janine to either buyers or sellers as an agent who works well in both a hot and cold market.
Graham Clelland - Kedron
Joe and I first met Janine nearly 20 years ago when we bought a house through her. Since then we have kept in professional contact and have always found her to be honest, straightforward and easy to deal with. Most recently, we engaged her to sell our home. As with all house sales it was a very stressful time for us but Janine kept us on an even keel. She kept us informed at all times and even when it was news that was difficult to hear, she did it with good common sense and reason. There was no "fluff" and "real estate speak" that clouds decision making. When asked her opinion or advice she was honest and straightforward. Thanks Janine.
Joe & Alison Desmond - Albion
Janine and her team was great at getting us into our new home. Really pleased. Thanks, Janine!
Gavin Winter & Emily Banks - Alderley
I bought my house from Janine in 1999. As a buyer, I found her to be very friendly, trustworthy and knowledgeable about the market. Seventeen years later, when I was selling the same property, I spoke to a number of real estate agents, but went back to Janine. Again, I felt a lot of trust with Janine. I feel that she was upfront, realistic and honest with me at all times. Janine worked hard and achieved a very good result for the sale of the property. Janine has a very good reputation in the community and is an outstanding real estate agent.
Russell Kenny - Alderley
Janine is an excellent communicator, explaining each week, who had come in to see the house and their respective comments. Also when it came to negotiating the right price, Janine's experience was very much appreciated.
David Harrison & Ann Bennison - Alderley
Janine went above and beyond what was required of her. Prior to listing our property she provided invaluable assistance/guidance for 12 months or more while we searched for a place to buy. She then turned her hand to the listing of our residence and achieved a signed contract at the asking price within a week of listing. Our relationship with Janine felt more like that of a friend than a service provider. When coupled with her depth of experience over many years in the north western suburbs I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services to anyone thinking of selling.
Robert Boyd & Melissa Chow - Gaythorne
Janine has a very good knowledge and understanding of the local market. She was great at providing updates and always approachable for any questions. I would recommend Janine.
Robyn Carter - Alderley
Janine was from Day 1 very warm, friendly, yet entirely professional. Always available when extra questions arose and provided good comments/ feedback when the buildings report came back with a problem. Very supportive of what was happening at all times. And I really appreciated hers and Connie's help when I made a mistake in returning my own storage keys by mistake - r e a l l y appreciated the " Can do attitude of both" So, big thank you for making this "sad & quite emotional " situation as easy as possible :-) Conny
Janine came to us well recommended and she didn't disappoint. She went above and beyond in the lead up to the Auction and was very helpful and open with us. Her expertise shone through on the day of Auction and she, in conjunction with the Auctioneer, worked their magic and got us over the line.
Ralph & Jan Kelsey - Alderley
Janine was unbelievably helpful and knowledgeable, I would highly recommend her service and would definitely use her again for all of my property needs.
Thank you for all of the hard work required to sell our property at Elfreda St. We wanted to let you know that we were very happy with Janine as our real estate agent. We feel that Janine did a great job and we always felt like we could really trust her. Her good reputation in the community is valuable and we are pleased that we were able to have her as our agent for the recent sale – and as our agent all those years ago back in 1999 when Janine sold the property to me.
Russell Kenny - Alderley
From the moment I met Janine she impressed me as being a thorough professional - knowledgeable and ethical. I would recommend her very highly.
Bruce Addison & Sam Bolton - Mitchelton
Janine was very hard working and responsive. She had good ideas on marketing our property and followed through to successful completion. Janine is a good communicator which is a valuable asset in this business but not always apparent in RE Agents.
Stuart & Carmel Wallace - Newmarket
Throughout my search, negotiations, contact signing and settlement, Janine was always delightful and professional. She obviously had a good rapport with both myself and the vendors and I was very happy with all dealings I had with her and the Ray White office. I wouldn't hesitate engaging Janine to sell my property and would be 100% confident she would work tirelessly to broker a deal which would be acceptable to both parties. Thanks Janine, I'm loving my new home.
Greg Pott - Newmarket
Friendly and approachable, I can't even imagine a more competent, tenacious and hard working agent than Janine McDonald could possibly exist.
Jason & Melissa
It was the sentimental sale of our first home. Janine was thorough, professional and understanding of our needs throughout the sale process. We would recommend Janine for the sale of your home.
Cameron Sly & Meagan Crabb
Janine was excellent to deal with & sold us our dream home. She was always helpful, all our queries were dealt with quickly and she allowed up to go through the house a number of times without making us feel like we were being an inconvenience. The whole process was seamless with Janine. We would use Janine again in the future.
Tim & Emma Glen
Fantastic support from Janine through out the process of purchasing our unit, from the initial walkthrough/open house, to negotiating the price and during settlement period. She has great market knowledge and understanding of the area we purchased in, provided timely response during negotiation periods. Made the process seamless. I would recommend her to family and friends looking to sell or purchase in the area.
Karla Hawke & Paul Coustley
I would like to recommend Janine because I was very happy with the way she confidently managed the sale of my house. I found her to be honest in her appraisal of the property, but at the same time she emphasised the positives. In addition she was easy to communicate with about any concerns I had. She supported me throughout the whole process and achieved a result that I was happy with.
Janine did a terrific job, nothing was to much trouble,I was advised every step of the way,it was a thoroughly professional experience, was totally at ease at all times.
We were very impressed with Janine’s professionalism, knowledge as well as warmth and support throughout the entire process of purchasing a home. We would recommend her to any friends/family looking to sell and would choose her in a heartbeat if we ever looked to sell. Thankyou Janine for making the process so smooth and enjoyable.
Paul & Megan Hayes - Alderley
We first met Janine in the late nineties when we bought our first home, she was just starting out and our immediate feeling was that we she was someone that we could trust. So when it came to sell my mother's house, we went straight to Janine. Janine basically project managed the work that was required to get the house sell-able. Her experience and wealth of real estate knowledge, as well as her excellent communication, made the whole process very easy. We would not hesitate to recommend Janine and her team to anyone.
Shane Doidge - Arana Hills
Hi Janine, Megan and I were very pleased with your service to us as buyers. As many would know buying can be stressful time and your willingness to assist us was well above our experience and expectations. It truely was great buying with you as the selling agent. Thanks again, we both wish you the very best in the future.
Matt & Megan Hull - Arana Hills
Janine provided truely exemplary services to sell our property quickly and efficiently for a satisfactory price. We were out of the state and the property had been tenanted. We were happy to follow her advice at all times and in addition to all the normal real estate marketing tasks, she found excellent tradesmen, carpets, gardener, painters, etc to present the property at its best and managed the process for us.
Ian Robson - Newmarket
When other agents heard we had Janine McDonald handling our sale they told us we were in good hands and they were right. Janine gave us sound advice about how to present our property for sale. We valued her experience and knowledge of the property market and her down to earth, positive style of communication. We felt confident she could help buyers see the potential in our property. During the period before auction, Janine was diligent in her follow up with those who inspected the property not only giving us honest and detailed buyer feedback but also successfully gathering a group of buyers interested in bidding for our property. We were very happy we chose Janine to sell our property. Thanks again, Janine.
Linda & Neil McMahon - Alderley
We would like to thank Janine McDonald for all the time & effort she put in, while trying to sell dad's home. It was very reassuring to know that we could phone her at anytime, with any sort of questions and were always met with such kindness and warmth. It has been a pleasure to do business with Janine, as she is such a caring person. I would have no hesitation in recommending Janine to anyone.
Gail Simpson - Alderley
Janine was honest, calm and matter of fact. She filled me with confidence that she knows her market and knows how to negotiate. At all times I felt she was trying to get the best outcome for me.
Jamie & Melanie - Enoggera
Janine McDonald sold us a property many years ago...we therefore knew she had years of expertise to offer this time, but we were still absolutely blown away with regard to how she communicated with us and secured a 'no fuss' contract in a matter of days. Janine is right on top of the market, a great person who is a pleasure to work and she makes you feel like a very valued client. We would give Janine and Ray White Alderley a very high recommendation.
Peter & Robyn - Alderley
Janine knows the area like the back of her hand, and has a good knowledge of our particular block. In fact, she sold the unit to us back in early 2000's! Once listed, she contacted us with regular updates on who was interested, any feedback given and numbers through open house inspections. She left decisions up to us but gave us balanced advice all the way through the process. If we were buying or selling in the area again I would have no hesitations in seeking Janine's help.
Ian Turton & Eileen O'Shea - Windsor
I found my experience with Ray White Alderley to be a very positive one. The staff I came into contact with were professional and helpful. Janine McDonald was easy to communicate with and accessible. She addressed any concerns I had efficiently (even minor ones) which made me feel more comfortable and at ease selling my property.
Janine was very friendly and yet professional. Her local knowledge of the area was a real asset to her assessment of the property and the value. Throughout the sale period, communication between ourselves was always strong.
Safi & Ben - Enoggera
“I would recommend Janine McDonald as a reliable and dedicated sales consultant. Janine’s market knowledge of our area and her outstanding communication skills made our sales process a very smooth and satisfying experience. Her calm and consistent negotiation skills were of great value while contracts were being exchanged. Janine’s honesty makes her a very credible agent, both the seller and the purchaser benefit from this. Overall, selling with Janine was a pleasurable experience.”
Judy - Enoggera
To be honest we went with my gut feeling in choosing Janine McDonald at Ray White Alderley. The first time I spoke with Janine I felt that she was different to other agents we had spoken with, and I just felt that she would do a good job. We had not yet selected an agent to sign with, and I told Brett that I thought we should go with Janine. We were not disappointed. She continually communicated with us during the entire process, and handled the fact that our house was tenanted extremely well when arranging inspections.
Janet & Brett Amis - Newmarket
We have been impressed by the professionalism, competence, co-operation and friendliness in our dealings with Ray White and their agent, Janine McDonald. We can confidently recommend Ray White to anybody contemplating selling their house.
David & Mary Backstrom - Stafford Heights
We would like to extend our thanks to Janine McDonald for all of her marketing efforts in the lead up to the successful sale of our property in Alderley. Janine's comprehensive feedback from both interested and disinterested "potential buyers" at the open houses was much appreciated and enabled us to confirm a realistic market price. Her persistence and cheery disposition also was a major factor we are sure in the ultimate success of the sale.
John & Rosemary Marshall - Alderley
Janine kept me and my daughter in the loop throughout the process of selling. She was straight forward with her advice during the sales process which kept me in the loop of what was happening with the sale. She recognised early in the process that some things needed to be tweaked for a better outcome. I appreciated her being flexible and for her reasons why.
Sanda Cronau - Alderley
"After having previously bought from Janine in Alderley, we decided to entrust her with the sale of our home in Newmarket, and we're very pleased we did! Targeting developers meant taking a slightly different approach to a standard sale, and Janine handled every stage with absolute professionalism. We're glad we agreed to take the property to auction, as it raised the bar well above previous offers, and we sold within a few days of the auction - thanks to Janine's unrelenting negotiating!"
Josie Bowers - Newmarket
Both Vlad and I are very grateful for all of Janine McDonald hard work in making this sale possible. With us living overseas, I am sure it added an additional challenge but she handled it all so well. Janine impressed us with her professionalism and "nothing is a problem" attitude. She has been such a pleasure to work with and we truly appreciate everything she did for us above and beyond what was required. We will have very fond memories of the RayWhite team at Alderley and hope that we will get a chance to work with Janine again when we are back in Brisbane.
Vlad & Lydia - Alderley
"Roger and I wish to express our appreciation of Janine's work in securing that our home was sold on Saturday. We admired her professionalism in all she did, as well as her friendliness and warmth. She kept us up-to-date with regular communication and invited us not to hesitate to contact her if we had any questions. Never before have we felt as if we were on the same team, that we were working together to achieve the same goal, to sell our home at auction for the best price. Janine is a treasure, and a pleasure to work with."
Roger & Roslyn Gepp - Newmarket
Janine is very efficient and professional in her manner and dealings with her clients and has an extensive knowledge of the properties in the area she services
Pam & Barry McCourt - Alderley
I have recently marketed my home and subsequently sold it with Ray White Alderley. I cannot begin to say how impressed I was with the service that Ray White gave us. Primarily we dealt with Janine McDonald who could not have worked harder to market and push our property. At every stage of the process, she kept us informed of the progress, interested parties and asked for any input that we may have had. I firmly believe that we could not have chosen a better company to sell our property for us, and would not hesitate to recommend them to other parties. At all times, their demeanour and professionalism made the selling process so much easier for us all.
Graham & Sarah - Windsor
Janine was so very helpful - I am a remote client, residing in Los Angeles. Janine was extremely responsive to every email and query. I found the whole process of selling my property very easy right through the marketing and contract process (she was able to refer the buyer to a mortgage broker when he ran into finance delays).
Wendy Rogers - Newmarket
Janine's professional knowledge and dedication is outstanding. Janine's attention to detail, friendly nature and excellent communication skills made it an absolute pleasure to engage with her almost on a daily basis.
Matt & Laurence - Enoggera
Janine does an amazing job - she is professional, highly competent and goes the extra mile to provide a high quality service. She has gone beyond the call of duty to assist us with a complex issue re selling our home. In the past I have seen Janine at work when I have attended her Opens and was always very impressed by her friendly but professional manner.
Phillip & Gail - Alderley
"I would like to take the opportunity to let you know how much we appreciate the service we received from Janine. At every instance we found Janine to be professional and friendly and she was always able to answer any questions that we may have had. We have already recommended Janine to a number of our friends & we look forward to working with her again in the future."
"Having lived in our current house for 19 years, to sell was a huge decision. Which agent to use and how to prepare our property for market was beyond my comprehension. I contacted Janine on the recommendation of a friend and have not for a moment regretted that decision. From our first phone call through to her advice on preparing the house for photos and open homes (not to mention the sale) she invested so much time and enthusiasm to ensure we got a quick sale for a price we were happy to accept. I hope she's still around in 19 years when we go to sell our new place :) I can't recommend her highly enough."
Darrin & Suzanne Griffiths - Alderley
We would like to say a huge Thank You to Janine McDonald who facilitated the sale of our property. We found Janine to be very professional, helpful, and informative and he went above and beyond to make the whole sale process as easy as possible. She was contactable at any time and ensured communication between all parties continued throughout the settlement process. She is a credit to Ray White Alderley and you should be very pleased to have her as part of your sales team. We would not hesitate to recommend her in the future
Chrystelle & Dan - Alderley
"I have to tell you that you are probably the most impressive real estate agent that I have ever worked with. You didn't try any sales tactics when it came to offers, you always provided feedback and you were always very honest in your dealings."
"I am taking this opportunity to thank Janine McDonald for the selling of my property. There were stumbling blocks along the way, but the outcome was very satisfactory. I cannot speak too highly of the time and effort Janine put into the sale and also the help she gave me."
"I would like to acknowledge the extra efforts you went to in assisting with the sale and ensuring I received the best price possible. The original tenants were extremely difficult and made successful open homes a challenge for you, I truly appreciate your patience, diplomacy and determination in dealing with them. You're after sales service was of the highest professionalism, and second to none in the real estate business. I have dealt with many real estate agents over the years and have found you to be highly motivated, sincere, consistently delivering on commitments and promises, having a through understanding of the market , and maintaining a good rapport with everyone you deal with."
