What people say about Davies & Hetzel Real Estate

Darren assured me he could make it happen

Darren assured me he could make it happen


By Colin S in Hillbank

“Darren recently handled the sale of my mother’s house in Hillbank for me. My mother had to enter a nursing home some months ago, following a bad fall, and we needed to sell her house in order to meet the costs of her care. This was made very difficult by the fact that I live in Melbourne and my mother’s home was in South Australia. Because of COVID and the border closure I couldn’t travel back to SA to organise packing up the house. I thought this meant it would not be possible to put it on the market, but Darren assured me he could make it happen. Along with a colleague he enlisted to assist, Darren transformed a house in need of some work, full of old furniture and mum’s possessions, to a beautifully presented, ready-for-viewing property. Following a well-planned sales strategy, he then successfully achieved a sale I was very happy with in less than a month/just a few weeks from first listing. At every stage he kept me informed, consulted with me, advised me on the best course of action, and solved any problems that arose. Selling a parent’s home is hard and stressful, and the way I had to do it meant I had to implicitly trust the person doing it. Darren is a guy you can totally rely on to do the right thing, he is a real professional, he goes above and beyond, puts the client’s needs first, does all this with a cheerful, good natured manner – and gets results. I cannot recommend him highly enough”.

I found all the staff I met and dealt with, in this company to be very helpful courteous and explained everything fully and openly with me during the whole process of selling my property.

Fantastic job with my property - added tens of thousands to sale price!

By Tariq in Modbury Heights

Vincent and Darren have done a fantastic job with my property and it’s been great working with you. There were many things to take care of to maximise the sale price, so it was a great idea to partner with Brett from Market Ready Now and identify the key things to renovate. The renovation process went very smoothly and in the end the property looked excellent. Your management of the property and the renovation has added tens of thousands of dollars to the sale price which exceeded my initial expectations. The marketing campaign was brilliant as well, which resulted in huge interest at the first inspection and more than 20 offers which was a terrific result. Thanks a lot for all the great work, I’m very appreciative of how well the whole process has gone and would highly recommend you!

By Elaine N and Bev L in Valley View

We found Darren to be enthusiastic and committed to getting the best possible outcome for the sale of our family home. He was always punctual and reliable, and always available for information and advice when we needed it. His knowledge was invaluable to us. One instance was his advice and assistance in dealing with a ceiling issue in our house. Darren’s enthusiasm and commitment contributed to the selling price, which exceeded all our expectations.
Thankyou Darren.

We will be forever grateful that you were recommended to us

We will be forever grateful that you were recommended to us


By Barry & Pauline T in Golden Grove

Barry and I are delighted to be able to convey our extreme gratitude and thanks for the way you dealt with us and the sale of our house. We are elderly and, from experience, very wary of putting our trust in some people, particularly in the important business of selling a house! You were recommended to us by someone we trust implicitly and, after meeting you, it was just plain sailing! You listened to us. What a surprise! At our age, it is a assumed by younger people that we oldies know nothing. You, however, listened carefully, explained absolutely everything fully and made certain that at all times we understood exactly what the procedures were. You were so kind and patient with us. You gave us helpful suggestions and took the worry out of everything for us. The photographer was really great. He did a grand job and also spent time with us which was very reassuring. From the first time we met, through the Open Inspection and then to the sale of the house, you were always in touch with us, either in person or by phone. You were always available and that meant a great deal to us.

We have now moved into our new place and are very happy and so thankful that the transition from our old house to the new one has been so smooth. This is due in no small part to you and we just say a huge THANK YOU.

Never thought I could own something like this

Never thought I could own something like this


By Antony S in St Agnes

Finally settled in! Things are going great and it's fantastic to finally settle in a place I can call my own home after many years of renting (it actually took a while for it to sink in that this was real!) and it's an absolutely fantastic home at that. This wouldn't have been possible without you, so I am forever grateful.

Vincent and the team at Davies&Hetzel were flawless in making my dream finally become a reality! After some hurdles obtaining finance, through my own endeavours during these difficult times, Vincent was very understanding and accommodating to help, and even facilitate this, from start to finish. Communication was open and honest every step of the way, which gave me pure confidence to proceed with my biggest financial decision. Whether it be for a future purchase, rental or any real estate transactions, Vincent and the team at Davies & Hetzel will be my go to without a doubt. Thanking you once again to finally have a place I can call home!

Having dealt with Vincent previously we had no hesitation in entrusting the sale of our property to him. The whole process went smoothly and we achieved a very good sale price within a week of listing. Vincent’s friendliness, professionalism and frequent communication were very much appreciated and we would have no hesitation in using him again and recommending him to family and friends.

Thanks for all your professionalism

Thanks for all your professionalism


By Chezie & David in Elizabeth

Hi, Vince, thanks for all your professionalism (I think there is such a word), your support, guidance and so the list goes on. The companies you advised to help fix up the place and the conveyancer were all spot on. At all times you kept in contact with us keeping us appraised of what was going on. And finally you were able to get us top dollar in a short space of time and a quick closing of contract. We couldn't ask for more and would recommend you to anyone else selling or buying a property.
All the best and kind regards,
Chezie and David.

By Amanda in Modbury

I was a young investor, concerned about being taken advantage of so I did my research and visited most of the property management agencies in Adelaide. As soon as I met Vincent, I knew that I could trust Davies and Hetzel. I signed up with Vincent within the week and have always appreciated the support and advice surrounding my investment property. Nothing was too hard and I always felt kept up to date. Thank you for such a professional service!

Hi Vincent, first of all, we are very happy with our purchase from you and your team. Your professionalism was outstanding.
