There are many sales people who say one thing and do another.
Tradespeople who promise to call you within 24hrs and you call them in 3 days as you haven’t heard from them.
Tradespeople who make an appointment to call into your home to repair an appliance and then never arrive.
Business owners where you have requested a quote for a high end purchase and they dutifully take all your details – and then you never hear from them!
Let’s face it – real estate has had its fair share of unreliable agents over the years.
So, where do we find people of quality today? Where are the leaders who give their word and stand by it? People who actually do what they say? You have found one in Margrit!
Margrit is enormously appreciative of recognition received from past clients, who continually refer family and friends to her.
Margrit’s philosophy is:
• Dedicated to achieving the best outcomes for both seller and buyer
• A proven track record of commitment to, and success in the industry
• Never gives less than 100%
• Constant communication with the vendors
• Undertakes frequent Real Estate education and training
• Infectious enthusiasm
• Optimistic, open and confident
When not selling real estate, Margrit enjoys the outdoors – especially training dogs
26 Chauncy Crescent Richardson
Sold without marketing to data base client
Having been impressed with the professionalism and efficiency of the service received from Margrit Sedlacek when she sold a 16 acre block of land at Little Burra for us four years ago, it was a no brainer as to which real estate agent to choose when we wanted to sell our house in Richardson recently. Margrit took the people who purchased the block around it in 40 degree heat and had an offer from them within 6 days of us putting it on the market. She kept us informed of progress at all times and answered all questions we had thoroughly and quickly. She also achieved a very quick sale for us with the house in Richardson and we highly recommend her services to anyone wanting to sell a property.

I am writing to acknowledge the fabulous experience we had in dealing with Margrit Sedlacek from First National Real Estate.
Our property at Carwoola was on the market for six days and Margrit had arranged for our property to be inspected by a prospective buyer.
The property was sold to the first people who inspected it.
We would like to thank Margrit for her commitment to the sale of our property and her integrity in dealing with us.
Cheryl and Bruce
Many thanks for the lovely coasters and chopping board. Our experience buying our property through you and First National Real Estate was second to none. You were friendly, professional and always answered our queries promptly. We couldn’t be happier with the whole process.
Dr Evan Kidd
Purchase of an apartment in O’Connor
We received great service, both before the auction and on the auction day. Margrit was always very professional, reliable and polite. Margrit always phoned us to discuss progress or any other matters. We were very happy with the service we received. Margrit was always very positive which was reassuring for us. Margrit achieved a record price for Karabar, Queanbeyan.

Margrit Sedlacek is prompt, polite and extremely efficient and effective in all aspects of the sale of my property. Margrit achieved a record price for my townhouse in Rivett.
Sale of 18 Faunce Street
I wish to thank you for the great job you did in selling my house in O’Connor in December 2013.
From my first meeting, your care for your clients was evident. Your handling of the marketing and sale of my home was professional and friendly, and made the whole process as stress free as selling a home can be.
Your careful explanation of the steps involved in getting my home on the market and your marketing strategy, including organising photographs, personally doing a letter box drop in the immediate area, and arranging exhibitions was excellent. Your promptness in any communication was also appreciated.
You were also extremely generous in providing real estate advice to me to assist in my purchase of a property in Sydney.
I have no hesitation in recommending you to my friends or any property owner looking to sell.
Margrit, it was a pleasure to deal with you and I wish you all the best in the future.
Sale of 4 Hemmant Street
Recently, under difficult circumstances we needed to sell a property in Canberra. From our first meeting with Margrit Sedlacek, her quick response to all communications from us, recommendations of suitable tradesmen, knowledge of the local market and quickly bringing the sale to a successful conclusion, made this much easier than it might otherwise have been.
Her friendliness and professionalism at all times in assisting us realise this goal was outstanding.
On a personal note from Malcolm and I, we thank you so much for your help from the first day we met you in April. During the very difficult time after my brother’s death, you consistently helped us every time we asked, nothing was too much bother to you, and every request was answered immediately. It made dealing with the disposal of his property very much easier than it might have been with someone else, and your friendship supported us all through this.
Suchada and Ed of 3 Minchin place Gowrie
We have spoken to 4 agents before deciding on Margrit. We would recommend Margrit to anyone, in fact we have recommend her to our neighbour who wish to sell at the time. The reasons for choosing Margrit are:-
1. She is the only one who suggested some minor improvements in order to obtain a higher price.
2. Other agents told us that we would not achieve the price that we wanted.
3. The house was sold within one week of open and she has achieved the desirable price for us.
4. She will keep in touch with you throughout the whole process of selling; she can be contacted and will respond to you asap.
5. She is dependable and reliable.
6. We have seen her in action in both buying from her (a few years back) and selling.
We have told friends and workmates about Margrit, because we would like them to be hassle free and be happy with the results in such a stressful time.
Have Margrit sell your home, you will not be disappointed.
Thank you Margrit for achieving the price that other agent said will not be achievable, and within a week.
1/6 Towns Crescent, Turner
Margrit Sedlacek sold our house in October 2012 in the first week it was on the market. She was very efficient and professional. We were happy with the result. She was generous in assisting us to find a new property to buy by letter box dropping in the suburb we wished to relocate to. She was always polite, positive and prompt with all communications.
We would happily recommend Margrit to anyone who was selling or buying a house.

Buyer comments on purchasing 1/6 Towns Crescent Turner
Buying a property can be a stressful time for purchasers. In all our dealings with Margrit and First National Real estate, we have found this experience to be quite the opposite. Not only has Margrit been fantastic to deal with at a personal level, but the process has been handled very smoothly and efficiently and we couldn’t have any higher praise for them as an Agent. The bottle of Champagne we were given once we’d exchanged just put an exclamation mark on the overall experience! A huge thanks to Margrit and the team from Kate and myself.

I am happy to report that my wife and I have had a pleasant sales experience with First National Capital and Margrit Sedlacek. The sales process was efficient and matters that needed to be followed up were dealt with quickly by Margrit. Margrit provided regular communication to ourselves to keep us up to date of the progress of the sale of our home.
I would recommend Margrit Sedlacek and First National Capital to other property owners looking to sell.
Regards... Robert & Suet
Once again, it is with the greatest of pleasure for Maria and myself, to congratulate you for the most outstanding, professional and above all for the quick, kind and efficient conclusion of the sale of our home, as you have done a few years ago with another property.
Not only have you sold our home in exceptionally short time, you have helped us to find a new home for us, at the location we desired, and at the excellent price.
It was a pleasure to deal with you from the beginning to the end. It is also our privilege to have been dealing with such a lovely lady, top real estate executive, and a marvellous performer.
We would whole heartedly recommend you, and your services, to all out friends and general public we know.
Wolly and Maria Ambrose.
I would like to thank you for the professional service you provided in the sale of my property.
Your committed focus and expertise in selling the property, communicating feedback from potential buyers and up-to-date information regarding the actual sale process was excellent and alleviated much stress in what could have been an anxious and very stressful experience.
Your sensitivity and professionalism was much appreciated.
We are extremely happy with Margrit Sedlacek’s very professional and friendly service that was provided to us whilst selling our investment property.
We were kept completely informed at all stages and you passed on all feedback. You were always contactable to answer any questions or queries we had.
You did far more than most real estate agents we have used in the past.
In summary, thank you for a brilliant job Margrit and we have already recommended you to our friends and will definitely use your excellent services again.
Very best wishes,
Karl and Joyce Webb.
I am writing to thank you and express our appreciation with the great job you did in selling our property in Jerrabomberra. We initially had our property for sale with one of the larger Real Estate Agencies in Canberra, who seemed only interested until we had signed the contract with them. After having the property for sale with them for several months, and with little interest from the agent, we decided to look at an agency that specialised in our area.
Sarah and I were extremely pleased with the personalised and professional service that we received from you as well as your knowledge of the local market, something that was lacking with the other agencies we considered. We were also amazed that we signed a contract with you on Friday afternoon and you had an offer at the price we wanted on Saturday morning. A true testament to your understanding of the market.
We would happily recommend you to anyone considering the sale of their property and again, thank you for making our sale an enjoyable and seamless experience.
219 Halloran Drive, Jerrabomberra.
Margrit Sedlacek was the agent for selling our somewhat quirky house. We chose her because she could see that the house needed particular marketing to a small target group. Other agents viewed it as a commodity to lump it into their standard product processes, but we felt that with her the house would get the individual attention and enthusiasm that it needed.
Margrit tailored a professional marketing strategy. She gave sounds advice about pricing and, especially about display. Her photography and website presentation were excellent. Her procedures for openings were careful and professional to ensure that security was protected. She always maintained her positive, cheerful and active approach to selling, and gave us continuous feedback. Despite a falling market, we sold more quickly than expected.
My wife and I agree that we would use Margrit’s service again and have no hesitation in recommending her to others.

I would like to also thank you for the gift, most unexpected. But you should be careful as other real estate agents might hear of this and get a bit uncomfortable with the ‘putting clients ahead of commission’ theory you have here. The way you managed to get past the dog proves you are not in the same boat as the rest of the industry is perceived. He hates dodgy real estate agents, dodgy workmen and basically anyone dodgy.
But seriously the experience in dealing with yourself and the vendors was very pleasant and rewarding. I wish I could say the same for our mortgage broker!
Thank you very much for the hamper and for being very easy to deal with through this whole experience. Unfortunately we love the house so much we won’t be moving until our kids have moved out, so we may not cross paths again but we wish you all the best and know that with the personal touch you bring to selling homes you will go even further in the industry.
Paul and Annie Pavez
After having interviewed some of the higher profile companies about the marketing of our home in Board Place, Chifley, I listed my home for sale with Margrit Sedlacek. Having lived in the property for over 30 years we were quite anxious about the task ahead of us.
Margrit took the time to go over the procedures necessary for placing our home on the market. We were very impressed with her extensive research throughout her presentation. Her honesty and concern for her vendors was evident throughout.
We were both delighted with Margrit’s energy and enthusiasm throughout the marketing of our home which sold within 4 weeks and achieved a record price for our area.
We are very happy to recommend Margrit and can be contacted on the phone number below at any time.

I would like to recommend Margrit Sedlacek as a highly professional and caring real estate representative.
I first met Margrit when she was assisting an elderly couple from the same town house complex. She not only negotiated their sale but drove them to Bateman’s Bay to find them a suitable property. Margrit knew of another older couple eager to purchase a town house in our complex and as we were contemplating a relocation to Melbourne, a very amicable settlement is to take place this Friday.
I have found Margrit punctual, reliable and capable of ironing out stressful situations. I have had several real estate transactions over the past 40 years but none as trouble-free and pleasant as this one Margrit has negotiated.

To whom it may concern,
We chose Margrit Sedlacek to sell our biggest asset, our property, after speaking with some other real estates.
We wanted Margrit because of her professionalism and she took the time to listen to what we wanted from our property sale and as a result of this, the property sold very quickly.
During the sales process, Margrit was always contactable when we had questions or queries and nothing was a bother.
Margrit always gave us feedback and advice. We were never in the dark as to how the sale was proceeding.
I would highly recommend Margrit to sell your house as she has made the whole process for us stress free and we were able to relax knowing that our house sale was in very good hands.
Margrit is not only professional at her work but also caring and we consider her not just our seller but also a friend.

To whom it may concern,
RE: Margrit Sedlacek selling our property at 18 Taylor Place, Greenleigh Estate Queanbeyan NSW.
My husband and I have had 14 properties that we have purchased and sold through many different agencies. Se we have had many experiences with both good and bad service.
I must say the moment we met Margrit we were sold. She was definitely not the cheapest but she sold her job to us well and gave us her personal guarantee that she would be there for us at any time and straight away. Her professional touch was shining through when faced with the Queanbeyan floods and photos needed to be taken. She guided Donna through her vision on how to best show off the house.
When showing through potential buyers she always treated us with full respect and gave us prompt feedback. Open houses were well planned with a bunch of fresh flowers. Margrit always came early to make sure that the house was at its best. Later on liaison with the buyers she was always quick to respond, and went way beyond her duties. When it was time for the inspections she was always available.
Overall I will recommend to all my friends the wonderful services that were received from Margrit Sedlacek.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
I would like to nominate Margrit Sedlacek for a Customer Service Award. My family and I were treated with respect and kindness throughout a difficult decision, which nearly caused us not to buy 40 Vonwiller Cres, Theodore ACT. Our final decision was carefully considered and for many days we agonised over if it was the right choice for our family. In our days of confusion Margrit Sedlacek was continuously courteous at all times in manner, as we were so grateful Margrit did not hold any spite towards us, for our decision making.
Margrit I find is a genuine and caring person and was committed not only to helping our family as the buyers, but I also know as a fact, Margrit was committed to Cecil and Ann Pearson, the owners as well.
Margrit Sedlacek went to 40 Vonwiller Cres, Theodore ACT, early as promised at approx 6am. Prepared to dust and armed with her own Dyson vacuum cleaner on the morning of the 25/03/10 as Margrit had said, ‘It works really well.’
Margrit also told me, that if need be, she would take any boxes that were left, to the new retirement home for the Pearson’s at Goodwin Village to help them, as Cecil and Ann had no one to help them move and was genuinely worried about Cecil being very ill and Ann being left to shoulder majority of the work. No job was ever too much trouble for Margrit.
Margrit had an uncanny insight, into knowing what you were thinking and how best to make everything run smoothly with kindness and genuinely putting herself out in any situation, helping anyone.
I sincerely thank Margrit for all her kind efforts.
In November 2009 we listed our property (44 Chauncy Cres, Richardson) and Margrit Sedlacek was our agent.
We are writing the letter in appreciation for the effort Margrit has put in to achieve the sale of our property for us (even shortening her Christmas holidays to show potential buyers through the house) we gave Margrit a price we thought the property was worth and what we would be happy with. Much to our surprise, Margrit laughed and said we will get more than that. Margrit could have sold the property a number of times for the price we would have been happy with, Margrit pursued her target for us and she didn’t take the easy sale, this showed us the dedication Margrit gives her clients and not herself.
We recommend anyone to use Margrit Sedlacek as their agent.
Very happy sellers,
Gary and Lesley Mangelsdorf
Thank you for selling our home trouble free. You did a wonderful job.
