" Went Beyond Expectations "

Michelle Korakianitis was so professional in every aspect. She understands her potential buyers needs, and with that our beautiful family home was sold within two weeks. Her friendly warm nature made her a delight to work with, and all parties involved are extremely happy with the outcome. Michelle certainly went beyond expectations, I would definately call on her again if need be.

" Excellent Result Achieved "

Just a quick note to recognise the excellent result we achieved selling our property at Flinders Park with Bianca Browse.  We'd like to commend the exceptional service she provided before and throughout our sale process. We first met Bianca when she sold the adjoining maisonette in late 2014.  At the time we mentioned to Bianca that we would likely be selling our place as it was clear it was not big enough as a family home.   Bianca provided advice at the time about the likely market for our place and gave us advice on the best areas of improvement to maximise the appeal of the property. We then dragged the chain for 2 years, but Bianca followed up our progress regularly and engaged with us along the way.  I'm certain other agents would have given up.   When the time came to finally put the place on the market there was no way I was going to reward another agent with the opportunity - Bianca thoroughly deserved to take the property to market. At the commencement of the process, Bianca sought to understand our requirements and preferences before running through the pros and cons of each option before suggesting an Auction, clearly explaining her reasoning for this approach.  She provided advice on the best way to market the property, where our advertising spend would be best placed and the reasons for it.  When it came to staging and presenting the property, Bianca arrived hours before the photographer and spent a significant amount of time ensuring each room was perfect - the result was amazing.  In the two weeks of opens, we have had phenomenal response from the market, and this resulted in a number of pre-Auction offers.  We decided today to accept an offer pre-auction at a prices that exceeded our expectations. Bianca's communication has been fantastic, she's explained each step of the process and managed the sale with such professionalism, honesty, organisation and clarity that it's been just so easy for us.   That ease was no doubt a combination of factors, but the approach and management of the process "owned" by Bianca has been superb.   Whatever mechanisms you have to reward this exceptional service outside of your standard commission structure should be seriously considered.

" Grateful "

We had been looking for our home for a while and instantly felt connected with our property but to top it off it was being sold by amazing agents. James and Meagan have been incredible to work with, they are very easily contactable and always come through with information as quickly as possible. They made the process extremely personable which for first home buyers was really lovely, and they worked with us to purchase our home in the easiest way possible. It has made this exciting purchase even more special and memorable and we are both extremely grateful to them for that.


" Great agent, Easy to deal with and a very quick result. "

James & his Team at Harcourts are very easy to deal with. This is the second house he has sold for us & we have recommended him to our family and friends without hesitation, James & his team always go above & beyond to reach our expectations, but most importantly he gets you the best possible result for our biggest asset!

" Great agent "

James had amazing communication and sales knowledge. He was able to secure an above average price for the property.

Really professional service, went above and beyond the call of duty. Would recommend to everybody.


" Thank you "

Thank you to the Packham team for the excellent marketing campaign & result on our property. This team have exceeded our expectations, James & Steph are true professionals.

Tim Arriola


Thanks Steph for the easy flow of the sale of my house.   You did a fantastic job back and forwards to the purchaser helping them try and get their finance.   Regards Toni


" Fantastic Agent "

James was a great agent. He or a member of his team (Stephanie) were always available. His estimate of the value of the property was very accurate. As the auctioneer he was exceptional and persevered to get the maximum sale. I have used James before and would use him again as well as recommending him to others.

Steve & Jane

" Fantastic Honest Agent "

James has provided a high level of professionalism. James came to the initial conversation with details of our property and properties that were similar with both great communication and visual data so he catered to all the learning types of prospective clients. We were unsure of what we were going to do with our property. We had options to sell, renovate and rent or just rent, James had all the necessary information for each option. James gave knowledgeable facts and figures in layman terms so we were able to decide which option was best. I would recommend James and his associates at Harcourts Packham


I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the hard and wonderful work you have done to help us get the house ready for sale. We are obviously ecstatic about the price we got and all of the credit goes to you – you worked above and beyond the call of duty! When I first met Kathryn I had a feeling that you were the right person who would understand the specific needs we had, when trying to get the house ready for sale, while living in the UK. You certainly proved to be a ‘Super Agent’!

" She listened "

Kathryn Taylor sold my house faster than I dreamt of and even made it a pleasant undertaking.  She listened to me:  this was important to a person facing selling her home after more than 30 years.  She answered my questions.   She always returned my calls.  She kept me informed throughout the process.   Kathryn wrote an excellent ad for my quirky, tree-filled property, showing her understanding of just what might attract people to it.  I recommend her highly.


" Friend for Life "

Kathryn you are a friend for life.  I’ve felt so comfortable with your suggestions, advise and honesty.  Our interaction through the process was stress free and enjoyable.  The sale of my unit exceeded above all expectations - after the first open inspection


" Forever Grateful! "

I would like to thank Kathryn Taylor for restoring my faith in the business community. Kathryn’s handling of the sale of my unit has been exemplary.  From our first meeting, her demeanour and ongoing confidence, honesty, advice and assistance to a person of my age, health and financial status has been uplifting, and to attain the target suggested by her in such a short time has astounded me, and for all this I will be forever grateful.   Well done Kathryn!


" Overall Satisfaction "

James Packham and his team are highly professional and I was delighted with the outcome of the sale of my house. The team has tremendous energy and they kept in communication with me during the sale process. I was pleased with how James presented my home to potential buyers and on auction day and I felt he pushed the auction to the limit to get the best price on the day.


" Fantastic Experience "

The team at Harcourts Packham were highly responsive and provided a professional service throughout the smooth, hassle-free purchase process. Highly recommend the fantastic team to anyone who is lucky enough to partner with them through a purchase or sale.


" Credible & Reliable "

James Packham had a very good knowledge of the house value and regularly gave me reports of the open inspections by emails and face to face meetings. His presentation and advice as to what was required to be done to the house in the lead up to the open inspections was spot on, which showed his credibility. On the day of the auction both James and his team worked well to achieve the outcome. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him.


" Successful Sale in a Short Time "

We engaged the Packer team to sell our property after two failed previous attempts at sale. James and team set up the marketing and open program meticulously and communicated effectively with all potential buyers to give us a successful sale in a short time frame.

" Seamless, Easy & Comfortable "

This is the second time that I have used the services of James and his team. Once again they didn’t disappoint in making the sale as seamless, easy and comfortable as possible. They always kept us in the loop of what was happening and I would recommend their services to anyone looking to sell or buy.


" Knows the Market "

James has freely provided Real Estate information to me for several years. So when I found myself in the position to sell my house, James was an obvious choice. The sale went through in a timely manner and for the correct market value.


" Confident & Fair "

I highly recommend James Packham and his team at Harcourts Packham. I had several extremely accomplished agents appraise my house and it was a difficult decision to choose just one agent. My decision to go with James was that he was confident, fair, empathetic to my circumstances and above all genuine. It was the best decision I made. He delivered in every way and his communication was outstanding. My house sold at first open for the price I wanted. Both James and his team worked tirelessly and went above and beyond to make sure it was a positive experience.
