Dear HomeBid

The process of selling our house seemed like a daunting undertaking. It has been over 10 years since we last did it, and the market has changed since then. At the same time there is no shortage of real estate agents, but that made the decision of who to use so much more complicated. We reviewed the big players but I just couldn’t get over the idea that I’d have to sacrifice 7% (or more) of the sale of our house just so that someone could just publish an add on the website. In a world where everyone is selling everything through the internet, it seemed like a ridiculous premium to pay for an archaic business model. We did advertise privately, and we did (reluctantly) engage with some of the popular estate agents, but from my first engagement with Homebid I felt much more comfortable. Terri from Homebid was professional, consistent, approachable and motivated to sell the house. She gave us the most valuable advice about how to price our property, what strategies we should follow and continuously evaluated our position. Through diligent persistence Homebid sold our house at the right price. Other agencies tried to push my selling price down while insisting on a very high commission. The best part is that Homebid had the lowest commission of anyone I could find – and at least half what other agencies expected. Honestly, I think Homebid is geared for the future of real estate transactions. They focus on what is important, they’re easy to work with and reliable. I would definitely recommend them.

Dear HomeBid

Working with Homebid has been a real pleasure from the first call to enquire about the services offered, the professional photographer who took pictures of my property and effective management of sales and registration of deal. I would recommend Homebid to potential sellers as you save a tidy sum.

Dear Homebid

My dealings with Homebid from start to finish were seamless to say the least! Friendly & professional without being invasive, what more could I ask for! Would I use Homebid again in the future- without a doubt!

Would I refer them to friends and family- already have, and continue to do so!
Keep up the good work Homebid!

Dear HomeBid,

It was really a pleasure working with your company. It is seldom that one encounters such professionalism and good support these days. I am most certainly going to save your details on my computer so that I can give it to any of my friends who needs your services!

Thank you very much indeed! May you have a blessed Xmas and a very prosperous New Year!

HomeBid, great value proposition, get all the same features and service as a standard estate agent, at a 1/3 of the cost, it’s the future of selling homes.

Danilo Mantoan, Rosebank
Having had my house on the market for 18 months with no success, I decided to give HomeBid a call. Not only was the process absolutely painless in terms of getting my property listed on their website (which is very rare when selling a house), but HomeBid also ensured that I was never inconvenienced by logistics for viewings as they liaised directly with my tenant at the time. Morgan from HomeBid was phenomenal in her interactions with me, and in keeping me informed of the progress at all times. My house was sold within a month! For a working mother and wife with everstressful life situations, working with HomeBid has been the perfect experience.

Dear HomeBid

The Homebid model is pure genius, it is simplicity at its best, my agent Allana was extremely informed, very helpful at every juncture. My sale turned out to be a complicated one but Allana took the burdens of complication upon herself and made it work out as I wanted it to. Between lawyers, the purchaser and my requests she just made it work out where all parties were happy. In the end I can say that I have and will recommend Homebid to friends and family because my agent Allana Smith was amazing and I had no negative experience with any other part of the Homebid process, best of all the commission is low.

Many thanks for everything,
Jeyato Bezuidenhout, New Germany

Dear HomeBid

Thanks to Homebid for all the hardwork that was put in. Homebid made the process of selling my property very pleasant - the best part is that it is at a fraction of what all these other property agents charge in terms of their exorbitant agents' fees. I'm glad to have found out about Homebid at this very crucial point in my life. From now on Homebid will be my one and ONLY property agent that I use when buying and selling property. Kudos to Homebid!

Good Morning Allana,

I pray our email finds you well. Patrick and I want to Thank You for all that you've done for us. Thank you for the way you handled the sale of No. 22. We thought it was going to be a nightmare, but you handled this with utmost professionalism yet you were kind and personal with us.

Thank you for your patience and for the answers to our questions, even for the petty ones....

It was a joy working with you, and we would like to assure you that if we ever have to do this again we will definitely do it with you.

Wishing you all of the very best. Keep well. With warm regards,

Ps. I shall miss your joyful laughter....

Dear Cavan and Allana,

Many thanks for all your assistance with the sale of our townhouse, we are delighted that transfer went through today. I am very happy that we decided to go with HomeBid as our agents. We had an offer to purchase two months after my initial call to HomeBid and transfer went through one and a half months later.

I think a turnaround from first enquiry phone call to transfer of three and half months is very impressive! Of course we are also very pleased with the savings we made on the commission, and it was a pleasure dealing with you both from an administrative point of view.

We have been telling our friends and family what a good experience we had with HomeBid and will be sure to recommend you in future.

All the best to you both.

Dear HomeBid

I am so impressed that I had to send an e-mail to express my appreciation. I have made contact via private property. The contact person on the site is Allana Smith. I instantly receive an out of office and few moments later I receive a response acknowledging my request and constantly give me feedback upon my requests.

When Allana return to the office she took over and knew exactly what my requirements were. I hope to venture in doing business with you.

Rajean Ramsamooch - Buyer
