Matt and Bec

Shawn & Kym’s knowledge of the Wynnum market is second to none.

From our first meeting, Shawn already had a plan on how to market our house to achieve the highest price – and he delivered. Shawn negotiated a price that we were extremely happy with. Shawn & Kym maintained excellent communication during the sale and are very honest and reliable. We have absolutely no hesitation on recommending Shawn & Kym as your sales agent and would happily use them again.

Anna and Ben

Shawn & Kym have an excellent knowledge of the Wynnum/Manly housing market. 

Their insight especially during this COVID-19 time was particularly helpful.

Their advice on setting up the house for sale was exceptional, with the proof in the price received – the house went under contract the day of the first open home.

They have assisted us in every step of the process of selling our mother’s house and I have appreciated their honesty and helpfulness.

Marita

We have dealt with Shawn and Kym twice now – once as a buyer, and just recently as the seller and all I can say is WOW! Their approach and tactic is second to none. Their follow up and service was amazing throughout the whole process, and I was never once left wondering where things were at. They were on top of it from beginning to end. Cannot recommend them enough. Awesome duo team that get you the result!

We were most impressed with their effective marketing & outstanding communication. Their incredible negotiation skills resulted in a sale price which was beyond our wildest dreams – what an amazing result! We highly recommend Shawn & Kym if you are looking for a very professional experience.
Peter and Glenyce - Seller

Great Team, Great Service, Great Results!! From the outset, Shawn and Kym walk you through the process of selling and are so knowledgeable that you have complete faith in how they will approach selling your home. They set realistic expectations for you and always do what they say they will. Within a week, our home was sold and we are on to our next adventure. Any future sales we do will be done through Sahwn and Kym without a doubt!

Buying our first home was an easy and enjoyable process with Shawn & Kym. They made what I thought would be complicated into a seamless process and they explained things every step of the way. Thanks for all the special touches like the sparkling and big bow on the front door!
Fernando

We have bought and sold many properties and this was by far the best experience we have ever had. Shawn and Kym’s professionalism and work ethic is second to none. Their unique approach to marketing our property got us an exceptional price and an under contact status within a week of going to market- what a result! Thank you Shawn and Kym- we will recommend you to anyone and everyone thinking of selling!
Kate

Having purchased our new house through Shawn and Kym, we knew they were the ones to help us sell our house. Their honest genuine and very knowledgeable approach got us more than we imagined we’d get for our house! It was sad to see it go, but at that price, i’m a happy camper 🙂 They communicated clearly through the entire process and presented us multiple offers and held a very successful Open House, which we sold at the very first one!
Ryan and Jacob

Kym and Shawn were a delight to deal with on the sale of our home. Having bought and sold houses and an investment property, we have met and dealt with many agents in the last 35 years. Kym and Shawn are the best we have dealt with. They displayed a high level of knowledge about the local market and a good understanding about the points worth highlighting in our home. They were professional in all their dealings and worked hard and showed commitment in achieving a good sale price promptly.
Maggie and Wayne

Personable and professional

Shawn & Kym sold our house right in the peak of the Coronavirus Pandamic and managed to achieve a very desirable result within a reasonable timeframe.

They adapted their marketing campaign accordingly and their communication was great throughout the whole process.

The recommendations made by Shawn and Kym regarding styling definitely contributed to the sale. We found Shawn & Kym to be personable and professional in our dealings.

Celeste & Sean (Sellers)

Dynamic Duo

Getting to know Shawn and Kym over the years made it an easy choice when it came to choosing them to sell my home. There honesty, reliability and compassion is their trade mark and I loved the dynamics of working with this duo as they don’t always see things the same way and bounce ideas off each other. Shawn and Kym went above and beyond to ensure all parties were happy with a favourable outcome all round. Their market knowledge is very strong and I would hands down recommend using them as an agent. What puts them above the rest is they are always happy to help, even if just for advice.

Lisa (Seller)

16 Scribbly Close, Lota

Amazing agents, would 110% recommend

Buying your first house is always stressful, even more so when your from overseas and learning how it all works.

From Day One Shawn & Kim have been amazing. We have been kept in the loop all the way through. Every question we asked was answered accurately and quickly.

Having spoke to a few agents in the market during our search it is rare to find two people who genuinely care about the buyers and sellers like these guys. You feel valued throughout.

We recently move in and would not have been able to turn our dream property around as quickly as we have without these amazing agents.

Dont look at anyone else, speak to these guys and after one conversation you will know you want them involved

Pity it only stops at 5 stars otherwise they would get 10!!!! 

Adam and Laura (Buyer)

Great Results & Selling Experience

Shawn & Kym gave valuable advice regarding presenting our home for sale as well as the best marketing strategy.  We were kept well informed throughout the sale process and found both Kym and Shawn to be very approachable and hard working.  They made a daunting process much easier and achieved a fantastic result.

Lanie and Erwin (Sellers)

Really good honest agents

Shawn has been an exceptional agent who couldn’t do enough to help us sell our house.  Not once did we feel we were getting they typical “sales” treatment; Shawn & Kym were so friendly, honest and upfront with everything they did.  We would definitely recommend to anyone selling in the area.

Joel and Sam

Professional Agent team! Highly Recommend!

First of all, we would like to thank Shawn & Kym for their guidance & a stress free experience selling our first home. We came across Shawn & Kym when they were representing a sale in our street. We found them to be very professional but at the same time quite approachable. We scouted for other agents in the area but none of them came close to Shawn & Kym’s personal touch, openness, market analysis & professionalism. Shawn & Kym got us into the market within 10 days of our first meeting. They took care of everything personally from arranging cleaners/trade persons to styling the home & professional photography. Shawn & Kym had prospective buyers lined up prior to listing the property and we had an offer from one of those buyers after the first open house. Couple of weeks of negotiations followed and we had a contract in the 3rd week. During the listing period, Shawn had always kept us up to date with weekly vendor reports & phone calls. We would highly recommend Shawn & Kym to anyone who is looking for an agent team that would go the distance to present the property in the best possible way with their personal touch, honesty & professionalism. Thanks Guys 🙂

Karthik & Ashwini

Great result!

If you’re thinking of selling I couldn’t recommend Shawn and Kym more. From the first meeting I found them to be honest and upfront. They gave constructive suggestions on setting up our home in the best way to get to maximum results and it worked. Our house sold within four weeks so we’re able to move onto the next chapter. If you’re thinking of selling, just meet with Shawn and Kym and you’ll understand why my recommendation is so positive.

100% Satisfaction 

Shawn and Kym were an absolute pleasure to work with during the sale of our home. They were so helpful and understanding when it came to our situation and we had full trust in their ability to get a great result. Shawn and Kym were on hand to talk us through every step of selling, and their advice and knowledge was invaluable. They had so much respect for us as a family and the home that we were taking to market. We can’t thank them enough and look forward to selling with them again in the future.

Corinne & Mitch

The Best You Can Find 

Simply, Shawn and Kym are the best. What makes them great agents is their understanding of not only the market, but their understanding of human nature, what it takes to sell a property for the best price, and their negotiating skills. They work hard for their clients, and will happily guide them throughout the whole process. From getting the property ready to sell, to choosing the best marketing strategy, to negotiating and right through to settlement and beyond. Why would you choose anyone else? We would, and have, recommended Shawn and Kym to anyone wanting to sell their property.

Cathy & Gareth

Shawn and Kym are an amazing team. We purchased our house from them as well as sold, so have been on both sides of the property market. At all times, Shawn  & Kym are personable, trustworthy and always put your interests as their top priority. We had 20 groups through in our first open home which just proves Shawn and Kym’s credibility as agents, and their skills at marketing our property. Shawn’s knowledge of the local property market is outstanding, and both Shawn and Kym will go out of their way to ensure your property sale is a success. I would highly recommend Shawn and Kym to anyone considering selling their home.

Karyn & Rich

Great Agents, very professional, knew their stuff and most importantly, got the job done and QUICKLY! They put in lots of time and effort and had the strategy in place to see the sale through. Worth every penny.

Rohan and Tabatha

Highly recommend!

Highly professional and yet sensitive to the sale of my property! Best decision I have ever made and could not recommend them more highly!

Karen

Shawn and Kym made it all a breeze for us. 

We found Shawn and Kym delivered everything they said they would, from their professional market knowledge, right thru to even clearing our mail and bringing our rubbish bins in whilst we were away. They were easy to deal with, and constantly kept us up to date with all information regarding potential buyers and home open inspection days. We highly recommend them and would definitely work with them again.

Alex and Sandy

Cannot recommend them highly enough.

We have sold two houses with Shawn and Kym and achieved great results both times. Even before we had decided to put the first house on the market they were very happy to talk to us about what we should and shouldn’t do. While we were working on the houses they would turn up with a hot coffee in winter and then in summer the drumsticks arrived. We have always found Shawn and Kym easy to get along with, trustworthy and very knowledgeable about the area they are working in. They were always available to answer any questions we had and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. We have already recommended them to others considering selling their property and will continue to do so.

Peter and Karen

Honest professionalism

We were both impressed with the whole process delivered by Shawn and Kym, their honesty, professionalism, their listening skills, and their business ethics were first class. We would have great confidence in recommending them to anyone wishing to sell or purchase a home and looking for the best possible people for the job.

Neil & Marilyn

100% Happy

We achieved a great price for our home with which we were happy and in a timely manner with our particular circumstances given appropriate consideration. Shawn and Kym kept us well-informed through each step of the sale process. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

Peter and Mary Jane

Amazing Agents!

We were referred to Shawn and Kym by a family member who had recently sold with them. We were selling our First Home and therefore didn’t know what to expect from the selling process. Shawn and Kym impressed us with their knowledge of the local area and their strategy on how to market the property. Although we had intended on meeting with other Agents, we trusted Shawn and Kym knew what they were doing and signed an exclusive contract straight away. What a great decision! We have no doubt that Shawn and Kym got us the quickest sale with the best possible terms and conditions. Shawn and Kym never stop working right through to after settlement. Unfortunately our first buyer pulled out following the building and pest inspection, but Shawn and Kym had another (better) contract the next day!
We have no reservations in recommending Shawn and Kym to anyone – you won’t be disappointed!

Rachel and David (Seller)

Fantastic Team

Thank you Shawn and Kim for your professional and enthusiastic approach in selling our late mothers home. Your understanding and knowledge of the market was exceptional and the entire process from listing to the actual sale was seamless. A fantastic result in just one week! We highly recommend you both. 

Roberta (Seller)

Randall Rd, Wynnum West

Excellent!

We would highly recommend Shawn and Kym.

Dani and Tim (Sellers)

Knows the job & does it VERY well

Shawn & Kym were with us the whole way when selling our home and buying our new one.  we were able to sell our home very quickly with the help of Shawn ‘s and Kym’s expertise.  Exceptional customer service, great communication, and easy to deal with.  Would highly recommend to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home.  It is also wonderful to know that Shawn & Kym support local sports and business.

Dianne (Seller)

Mr & Mrs Wonderful

I cannot say enough about these 2 agents, Shawn & Kym Kristofer, who from the start gave me the confidence and stability to place my home in their capable hands.  Their assistance in staging my home was very beneficial and their knowledge of presenting homes was amazing.  I would encourage any seller out there to employ these lovely people to sell their home.  A big thank you to Shawn & Kym for their tremendous job.

Trish (Seller)

An Awesome team!!

From the first meeting with Shawn and Kym we knew they would be the agents to sell our house. Their knowledge and expertise about the housing market was outstanding. They gave us tips and ideas to make sure we got top dollar for our house and regularly visited to see the progress we were making. We were able to contact them anytime with questions or problems and they always returned our calls asap. No question was too dumb and they always made us feel comfortable and part of the team. They are also a great couple who we have enjoyed working with (and laughing with) over the past few months. We would have no hesitation is recommending them – they are truly the best!!! Thanks again.

Kristen and Sam (Sellers)

Great Agents! 

I recently decided to ask Shawn and Kym Kristofer to list my home for sale and I’m very glad I did! After our first meeting, I was completely confident in their market knowledge, marketing and sales ability and importantly their integrity. I was thrilled when Shawn and Kym presented me with a written offer following the very first open inspection. I was also thrilled with the sales price they had managed to negotiate for me. During the period before the contract became unconditional, Shawn and Kym both communicated with me regularly. They also continued this communication right up to settlement. I appreciated that they always ensured I knew exactly what was happening with each stage of the sale. A friend of mine thought that perhaps I hadn’t achieved the best price for my home because of the quick sale, however I know that I did because of Shawn and Kym’s market knowledge and open and honest communication with me. If you are looking for an agent who has your best interests at heart and the ability to finalise a stress-free sale, I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Shawn and Kym Kristofer.

Dynamic Duo 

We purchased through Shawn 6 years ago so when we needed to sell a house recently  Shawn & Kym were our first call. I was extremely nervous & uncertain, however the moment we met with Shawn & Kym they eased our minds and explained everything clearly. We had multiple offers from the first open home & they kept in regular contact ensuring we were comfortable from our first meeting to after settlement. We are very happy with our outcome and grateful for Shawn & Kym, the dynamic duo. We would definitely recommend them.

Chris & Jodie

I have no hesitation in recommending Shawn and Kym Kristofer as professional, knowledgeable real estate agents.  Without the advice and sales strategy they provided, I know I my home would not have sold in such a short time frame, nor would it have achieved such a great price. By investing in their suggested upgrades, ensuring the home was professionally dressed and following their sales strategy the house sold within a week of hitting the market at 20% above the value given by other real estate agents. It shows what genuine enthusiasm and local knowledge can achieve.

Lynne Q, Manly

Amazing experience

Before meeting Shawn and Kym we were truly very sceptical of agents. Our previous experiences had led us to believe that agents would do as little work as possible to effect a sale. Shawn and Kym are not like this at all. Right from the start they were super communicative, knowledgeable and professional. They took all the work out of the sale of our property, project managed the process involved with ending a lease and the repairs etc that were needed after our tenants moved out, and made our house sale ready in the most cost effective manner. At all stages Shawn and Kym were a pleasure to deal with, and we can’t recommend them highly enough.

Katie and Alex

As a duo, Shawn and Kym were a pleasure to deal with and its clear they are some of the premier realtors in the Brisbane bayside. We bought our first home from them, and they helped us navigate the process, as it was all completely new. We particularly rate their advice on how to add value to the home, as well as the local market and it was great to see that they also shared our joy and excitement when we were the successful buyers. I would definitely recommend them, they know what they are doing and they seem to have access and listed some of most sought after, quality properties in the area.

Tim & Julian (Buyers)

Shawn and Kym are honest, intelligent agents, who genuinely care about the outcome for their clients. When we sell next, they are the agents we’ll be using. Your house is the biggest asset you’ll ever have and I wouldn’t trust the handling of that to anyone else. When it came to selling our house, they had an extensive knowledge of the area, were spot on with their advice on preparing the home for sale, timing the sale & valuing of the property, and they got us a better price than we had hoped for. Their advice through the whole process was welcome and reassuring. I can’t recommend Shawn and Kym highly enough!

Nicole and Paul

Great service, delivered results

Shawn and Kym helped us through all stages of selling our property, from initial advice about how to prepare our property for presentation, to management of the marketing process, negotiating with potential buyers, and ensuring that each of the milestones were met with minimal drama. Shawn and Kym were great communicators, were always friendly, and didn’t mind how often we contacted them. Their advice was sound, not only for us as sellers, but also as buyers. We recommend Shawn and Kym as people that can be trusted.

Philip and Dorothy

We chose Shawn and Kym to sell our house because of their enthusiasm, professionalism, local knowledge and friendly personality. From the time they were appointed, Kym and Shawn were always organized and kept us really well informed, both of anything we needed to do as owners, and of how the campaign was going.  I guess the best thing for me was knowing that everything was being well managed and I didn’t have to worry about anything, and that dealing with Kym and Shawn was very easy – they are real people, completely upfront and professional. I recommend them without any hesitation as sales agents for your home.

Matt

Great experience from start to finish

Shawn and Kym were fabulous in every interaction we had with them. They give customized service and were wonderful with the level of communication and support throughout the sale process. We were really happy with our sale result, and the speed at which it all happened. Would highly recommend Shawn and Kym.

Lauren and Dan (Sellers)

Local people who know their area.

The professional skill was outstanding in achieving a positive result for us. The sale was completed smoothly with the minimum of disruption to us.

Marray & Kay (Sellers)

Would recommend

Shawn & Kym are very knowledgeable about all areas and if they don’t know they find out fast.  They have excellent communication and are honest, reliable agents.  From walking us through how to ‘style to sell’ offering furnishings if we needed and providing thorough, honest feedback from viewers, we felt they really worked for us, not just for the commission.   Thanks Shawn  and Kym you did a great job!

Roger and Claire (Sellers)

Fantastic Advice, Honest Team

Shawn and Kym were a pleasure to work with in selling our home.  Their experience, knowledge and advice saw us get an offer over our asking price within 24 hours.  Great communication and kept us in the loop the whole process.  I will and have already recommended them to anyone looking to sell in the area.

Jen (Seller)

Best Agents! 

We cannot recommend Shawn & Kym enough! They have gone above and beyond in selling our house, they’ve kept us well informed throughout the whole process, and were always available to answer any questions we had. They were able to get us a great result and we cannot wait to sell again with them in the future.

Lyle and Katie (Sellers)

The Angels of Real Estate 

I bought a house via Shawn years ago so when it was time to sell he was my first and only choice. Shawn is an excellent negotiator and knows his market. Kym gave us excellent advice on preparing our home for sale. We had a contract within a week of our first open home!!! They are both experts in real estate, are friendly, caring and personable. Highly recommended.

Kim

Best agents I have ever encountered! 

Well, where do I start?! Shawn and Kym not only are passionate about what they do, but the time and effort spent in getting to know you as a seller, and helping you to achieve an amazing result, well I was just blown away. The numerous calls and emails I made with questions, the pop ins on their way home late at night to see how everything was going, I cannot recommend them highly enough. With having multiple offers, my house was sold in only a few weeks and having a figure in mind that I was happy with, I was in disbelief that the figure far exceeded my expectations! Thanks to their professionalism, passion, dedication, advice, friendliness, and being so down to earth, an amazing result was achieved! I cannot thank you enough Shawn and Kym from Remax

When we decided to sell our house we knew that it was important to list our property through agents who we could work with, who knew the local market well, who would listen to and respond to our questions about the best way to market and sell our property in order to extract the best possible price.

We found that Shawn and Kym ticked all of the boxes with regard to the attributes we wanted in an agent. They were easy to communicate with, they provided terrific insight with regard to the local market, the type of buyer likely to purchase our property and provided a realistic appraisal with regard to price.

Another aspect we appreciated in our dealings with Shawn and Kym was that as a team they often brought different skills and perspectives to the discussions. This provided another layer of insight which would have been unlikely if we were dealing with a sole agent.

Shawn and Kym gave detailed feedback after each open house and quickly identified the people genuinely interested in purchasing the house. After 4 weeks of a very comprehensive marketing program, we went to auction confident that all had been done that could have been done to attract the right buyer. Auction day resulted in an enormous turnout, with 8 registered bidders and delivered a result we were very happy with.

We would have no trouble in recommending Shawn and Kym to anyone considering listing their house for sale. They acted with complete integrity and honesty from our first meeting, through to signing the contract of sale and were a pleasure to work with at all times.

Lyn & Greg

Great agents

Great people to deal with they go above & beyond. Would definitely recommend them & will use them again for our next place!

Kalin an Aaron

Fantastic Agents!

We would highly recommend Kym & Shawn for numerous reasons but mainly because of their outstanding customer service. Kym & Shawn are very knowledgeable and took the time to sit down and go through everything with us in detail, which as first time buyers we found to be extremely helpful. They were contactable at all times and any questions we had were always answered so efficiently. Their highly professional service has a very personal touch. Thanks again Kym & Shawn!!!!

Sarah & Noel

These guys are the nicest,professional,hard working real estate couple any one could ever hope to come across. Thank you so much Shawn & Kym , We really enjoyed working with you both.

Michael & Linda

Shawn & Kym Kristofer make an excellent real estate team. Both have very good communication skills without coming on too strong which can be of-putting. Their attention to all the necessary details and procedures was excellent. Kym communicates well with the more feminine and appealing aspects of the property whilst Shawn has a very good grasp of all the background details. This includes the processes and the logic to apply to the sale method as well as the realistic limitations to the price that we could expect. Shawn is an excellent negotiator which was so important in getting the best result for our sale.

Alan & Gerry

Shawn and Kym were extremely professional throughout the entire process and I cannot fault them in any way. They maintained consistent contact and their suggestions in regards to how we could better present the property for sale were well thought out and ultimately resulted in securing a higher price then we originally had anticipated. This sale was secured within 2 weeks of the property being on the market. Shawn and Kym oversaw all aspects of the preparations – most importantly during times when we were unavailable. I found their approach to be very well measured and not in any way ‘pushy’ and they presented as willing to take on board their client’s opinions and viewpoints. I would have no hesitation in recommending Shawn and Kym as being very dedicated to their client and to securing the best possible outcome.

Craig & Lesley (Sellers)

Shawn & Kym where amazing right from the first day we met them. They took time to talk to us and helped us cope with the stress of buying our first home. They really made the entire process easier & enjoyable. They took us through all of the steps involved and genuinely cared about us. We never felt pushed or rushed like we had with other real estate agents. We would highly recommend them & wouldn’t hesitate to do business with them again in the future.
