Award Winning Agency and Agents on the Stunning Fleurieu Peninsula
A caution to sellers
-- who benefits?
The question you should always
ask, especially when being offered
anything for "free" is; who benefits?
You might've seen the adverts about
companies who can find you the
"best" agent to sell your home.
Jeff Copley, Co-Director of First
National Copley explains how it
works: "You contact a 'Consultant',
involved in sales, who takes your

fees, be the least experienced and
the one most vulnerable to these
middlemen rather than the most
suitable or experienced for you. Very
