Seller Testimonials

Looking for a house together to buy, Madonna and I were pleased we ran into James..  Right from the beginning of our journey he said he would look after us.  He said not to worry, he would do everything to see us through..
Four (4) new homes suddenly appeared on the Market in Shailer Park.. James helped us expertly sell our own homes in record time.!!  And before we knew where we were, we moved into one of these homes..!!  FANTASTIC..!!

James helped us every step of the way and was always available to answer any queries.  We  were put at ease all the way through..  We felt as though we were not a “number” - but 2 “special people” in his eyes..

James kept his promise when he said he would look after us and he did.

I will always recommend James and First National Springwood to anyone looking for a home.. Thank You James..

To Whom it may concern
We would very happily recommend James Kassolos. We found him to be very honest and a straight talker. James sold our property in 2 weeks and found another for us to buy when we sold our house. I would happily seek out James when we decide its time to sell our current property.

Hi James,

Just a short note to express our thanks for your efforts in the sale of 4 Light Street, Springwood.

My mother, Jill McNamara, is full of your praises and I must add mine as well.  When I arrived two weeks ago in Brisbane  to help her move to Melbourne
Your assistance and helpful manner was much appreciated…. even the boxes you purchased from OfficeWorks was a very kind gesture.  

Mum always felt able to ring you for information or assistance  (and I’m sure she did quite a lot !)  it made the process go as smoothly as possible.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your services in selling/buying property in the Springwood/logan area.

Kind regards

Simon Krasnoff and the Springwood First National team were very helpful and professional in the sale of our house. Simon gave an honest and detailed market appraisal of our property, and ended up going to contract at close to this initial valuation.  Communication has always been fantastic, and Simon called us after each inspection and open home with an update and always kept us well informed of what was happening at any time of the day or night. Simon worked hard, spent a very reasonable amount on marketing and got us the results we wanted very quickly.
I can highly recommend Simon, and would not hesitate to ask him to sell another property for us in the future.

Just a little note to let you know that Bruce and I say a heartfelt "thank you" for all the diligent effort you expended in the task of selling our Daisy Hill home.

Your continual optimism and commitment to a successful outcome encouraged us when we were becoming weary of the process.

At all times, we felt included in decisions and listened to, even when the discussion involved some constructive criticism. You are an asset to your organisation and an exemplary example of your profession. Well done and thank you again!

Bruce and RhondaleJane Mallett

Engaging Simon Krasnoff, from Springwood First National, to assist us with the sale of our property has been the right choice.
Having not sold a home for some time, we were apprehensive about which agent to choose and went with our intuition when choosing our agent and we were very happy with our choice of agent in Simon, from the outset.

Simon took the time to explain the sales process, benefits of marketing and presentation tips.

We followed his advice on pricing our property and the correct way to market the home to the broadest range of buyers.
We are happy to confirm that, Simon communicates well, he was punctual, approachable and considerate of our needs, but most importantly, he achieved an outstanding result in what we knew was a challenging market.

Full asking price, a reasonable sale time-frame and minimal stress!

Well Done Simon!

Yours Sincerely

Marlene and I would like to thank you for the professional and personable manner in which you managed the sale of our unit at 6/71 Park Road Slacks Creek last month.
Your honest approach and advice ensured that we were able to present the unit in a “sellable” state without going overboard in terms of our expenditure.  It also helped, we are certain, to attain a quick sale.
Simon, as you know, we live in Cairns and selling real estate long distance can at times present some significant challenges.  We have sold a number of properties over the years, however, you are the only one that we have seen turn up with a drill and a paint brush willing to help with minor repairs as you knew that Marlene’s time at the unit was limited.
That in our book is going the extra mile.  It is impeccable professionalism and extremely generous.  It is also the reason that we will highly recommend you to anyone we hear of selling in your area. 
Once again, our sincere thanks!

Upon purchasing our home we had the opportunity to meet Simon Kransnoff who is a Sales Representative for First National Real Estate at Springwood.

Our first impressions of Simon were very warm and friendly. His welcoming smile made us feel comfortable and approachable.

We found his services to be professional and of high quality. He always kept us well informed with the progress of the sale and the purchase of our home.

Without any hesitation we strongly recommend Simon to anyone who is looking for a Sales Representative.

We want to let you know that we have really appreciated your help and advice in selling our property in Deloraine

From the first time we met you and discussed the sale of our house we felt you were a person who listened to us and were someone we could trust.

There were many things we appreciated about you - your professional approach, your integrity, your knowledge of the market, and especially the way you were so very willing to go beyond what was expected of you.

In this time of market uncertainty your advice on an asking price and process of advertising meant that we were able to accept an offer a mere five days after the property first went on the market

The fact that we were way up north on Cape York about 2,000 kilometres away meant that we needed someone like you. We appreciated your help in getting someone in to tidy up the yard as well as the pavers you gave us to help tidy up the back patio. Your willingness to keep on eye on the property between the time we signed a contract and the actual settlement, removing junk mail and keeping to chemical levels up in the pool was greatly appreciated.

We hope that things continue to go well for you in the real estate market and that you next fishing trip may be more successful.

With thanks and best wishes

Tom & Lyn

Laurie and I would like to express our sincere thanks to you in particular, but also to the whole team at Springwood First National, for doing such a wonderful job in selling our house at Rochedale South.

The sale of a house is one of life's most stressful activities. However, it was made easier by dealing with you, because of your highly professional manner and your very warm and friendly personality

We often hear about the importance of ethics in real estate these days. We honestly believe that your agency was exemplary and maintains the highest standards of customer service.

We appreciated the consultation, regular feedback and advice given to us after each inspection and open house and felt comfortable in the knowledge that our best interests were always paramount with you.

It was very clear to us, from our first meeting, that you had a strategy for the sale of our house, including a marketing plan, which would be reviewed regularly. Your advertising campaign was extremely well planned and was a significant factor in the sale of our house.

We were so happy when all your hard work paid off and when our "Under Contract" sign finally was changed to "SOLD".

We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you as a real estate agent to anyone who needs to buy or sell a property in the area.
Yours sincerely

Laurie and Kay

I first met Michael Wardlaw when he was recommended to me by a friend to sell my home.

I found him a very personable man with excellent communication skills. He kept me informed at all times about appointments and feedback from prospective clients.

Nothing was a problem to him and he sold my home in a very professional manner.

I would heartily recommend Michael Wardlaw to anyone wishing to sell their home.


Just a short note to say thank you for the efforts of you and your staff on the recent sale of our property.

In difficult times like these it was a pleasure to see such a committed team effort. You never gave up even though our property was on the market for quite some time. You and your staff were courteous and prompt with feed back after many inspections.

You are to be congratulated and we look forward to dealing with you again in the future.

Rex and Chris

Just a short note to thank you for a "job well done".
The sale of our home in Daisy Hill was handled in a most professional manner from your original presentation to final sale.

As you are aware I was transferred to Melbourne by my employer and felt I was leaving my wife in a possibly vulnerable position to sell our home but First National Springwood completed a very successful sale in a most professional manner.

Once again many thanks and wishing you and your staff success for the future.


It is a breath of fresh air as a buyer to have come across Simon Krasnoff – a property consultant that actually does WHAT they say they will WHEN they say they will.

From meeting us for an inspection at a property within 15 minutes after a phone call to answering his phone at hours far and beyond closing time followed by emails sent even later again in the night, you can tell that Simon is passionate and real about his profession.

I can’t speak highly enough of Simon. This is the sort of agent I would want selling my home.

This is a letter of thanks and appreciation for managing the sale of our property on Shailer Road. We have had numerous dealings with Real Estate agents over the years and we found your commitment, hard work and professionalism to be at a very high level and most welcome.

Your courtesy in your dealings with us and prospective buyers was exemplary, and we wish you all the very best for your future career.

Our sincere thanks

Neville and Pam

We would like to thank you for the professional way in which you managed the sale polite, approachable and courteous in all your dealings with us. You always responded quickly to any queries and consistently maintained a high level of written and verbal communication with us.

It was clear to us at all times that you were out there working hard to attract potential buyers. This was reflected in the large number of people who viewed our property and its quick sale at a reasonable price.

Your professional and courteous attention extended beyond the sale of the house. We especially appreciated your efforts to help us in our search for suitable rental accommodation while our new house is being built.

We are very pleased to recommend First National Real Estate (Springwood), and your services in particular, to anyone considering selling or buying a house.

Yours sincerely,

Margaret and Jock
