By Raymond & Amanda Potter in Ravenshoe

"The house that was for sale was not in a thriving area like the main towns. It just goes to show what can be achieved with a dedicated agent and advertising your property digitally, WITH BEING EXCLUSIVE. Raquel was there all the way with the sale of our property , she had buyers coming through every week then the fourth week we had a contract. This was fantastic news! It makes a huge difference when you find an agent on the Atherton Tablelands that is prepared to go that extra mile to sell your home. Not only did Raquel help us with the sale she also was there to support us all the way through by staying in constant contact and keeping us informed through the whole process. SHE IS ONE OF THE BEST AGENTS THAT WE HAVE DEALT WITH.HIGHLY RECOMMEND RAQUEL if you are looking to sell or buy. Forgot to mention we received the price that we wanted."

Nothing was a problem

By Kevin & Mary Jalandoni in Atherton

"I have been buying and selling both commercial and residential properties for more than fifty years and Raquel has been one of, if not the best Agent I have used. With her involvement in new house and land sales she understands the market demand and gives an honest appraisal that the vendor can realize. She reached a higher price than we thought possible by judging the purchaser would pay more than their first offer. If you want a hard working agent then don't go past Raquel."

Couldn't have picked a better agent

By Joan Cooper in Atherton

"Raquel is delightful. She has a kind and warm manner. From our first meeting with her, mum and I were at ease. She knows the market and gave us sound advice. Raquel kept us fully informed and always treated us with respect. I thoroughly recommend this young professional agent."

Sold with Raquel

By Jayne Bidner in Tolga

"I listed my property solely with Raquel, and in under 8 weeks, Raquel had it sold. Raquel is easy to talk to, very accommodating and available. Raquel is professional in her work ethic, however resonates a comfortable and open demeanour - making her very approachable - which is what you want when selling! When is came to the real work, which to my mind is navigating the contract period; Raquel was able to mediate with both sides, to ensure the contract did actually settle. Many thanks to Raquel at Sommerset - it is easy for me to extend my recommendation."

Smooth Process!!

By Phillip & Catherine Midson in Atherton

She was quick to ask the questions we expected and came back to us with an offer just over a week after listing with her.

I would thoroughly recommend Raquel as she was a pleasure to deal with and realised from day one what we wanted and made it possible for us to sell in difficult times."

By Mark Goeths & Jess Adams in Tolga

I would happily recommend and use Raquel again."
