Five Star Experience!
My experience with Simone during the recent sale of my property was first rate from beginning to end. I found her highly knowledgeable, professional and a fantastic communicator, keeping me informed of all developments on a regular basis. She was also very proactive in presenting all options and adapting our campaign when a sudden and unexpected lockdown interrupted our campaign. The end result also exceeded my expectations, achieving a fantastic outcome at auction.

I found Simone to be very professional and easy to deal with during the sale of my investment property.
The process was smooth from start to finish. A very good result in a short space of time.

Working with Simone was very reassuring. I'd never sold a house before so all steps were new and unknown. I felt informed the whole way through and Simone was always in touch with any changes along the way. Everything felt under control and at a pace i was comfortable with too without any pressure of a quick sale. I'd definitely recommend Simone to friends and family as she is not your stereotypical real estate agent.

Excellent agent who helped us through our first sale
Simone was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and full of resources for selling our home.

Exceeded Expectations Again!
Simone sold a house for us last November, and the service she provided was second to none. This time around we sold our family home and she went above and beyond for us. She coordinated trades to get the place looking amazing and clearly explained our options for the marketing strategy.
Simone used her expertise to get potential buyers in early, resulting in a sale prior to the property even hitting the market.
Simone’s two best attributes are her outstanding communication skills and that she genuinely cares about her clients and what’s best for them. Selling your home can be a daunting and emotional process but Simone was there each step of the way to support us.
I would not think of selling again with anyone else. Simone was brilliant!
- Alistair in Aberfeldie

I reached out to Simone, as we worked together eight months ago. When I told her my situation, I was met with compassion and understanding with my decison to sell. She knew the block of apartments well and told me the challenges we would and could face regardless of my improvements. I decided to list anyway and take advantage of the Hot market. Within 2 weeks of being open we had a bidding war which saw my property see an incredible result. An unheard of result especially for a place that was only purchased eight months ago.
Before making any decision Simone let me have all the time I needed and told me I call the shots for everything. She never wanted me stressed, kept me up to date and always had my best interest in mind. " I don't care about the commission, I just want to make sure you're not stressed and Okay."
Thanks to Simone I saw an incredible Result in a block that does not see the greatest results and have been given one more chance to find a place that really is meant for me.
Compassion, Understanding, Amazing Results. That's Simone. Thank you Simone.

- Alan in Aberfeldie

We simply couldn't have asked for anymore from Simone in the selling of our home.
A stronger focus on rapport, friendliness and communication, it's refreshing to see a real estate agent that isn't just putting the hard sell on potential buyers from start to finish; a turn-off for many.
Simone was particularly instrumental throughout negotiations, whereby we ending up securing the sale several weeks prior to the schedule auction date. A massive relief and convenience for us.
Fantastic combination with Joe, a duo I would strongly recommend for those looking to sell.
- Jessica and Michael in Pascoe Vale

Danielle was a pleasure to work with, both myself and my husband were very pleased with the service she provided us, in selling our investment property.
Her knowledge of the market was exceptional and we felt very comfortable with the whole process.
It was nice to know that we could relax, during what was a stressful time, knowing that we had such a great estate agent working for us.
Danielle has a lovely bright personality and was always honest and worth coming with information.
She negotiated a great result for us, we couldn't be happier.
- Maureen and John in Craigieburn

We had heard of the great work Danielle had achieved in property sales from people in our area & we decided to give Danielle the opportunity to sell our property in Wyndham Vale.
From the first conversation with Danielle she was professional, listen to our requirements and intentions. She managed the communication to the tenant, kept us up to date nearly daily on what was happening, next steps etc. (inspections, internet, plans, sales board etc) and then after every open inspection gave us an update on how it went.
Danielle advised us on her thoughts re offers & guided us through that process. She is very passionate & takes "ownership" of the sale for you.
We were very happy with the outcome that Danielle achieved for us and we would recommend her services to anyone selling or buying a house in the future.

Having dealt with various members of the team for many years, we decided to appoint
McDonald Upton when the time came to sell our mother's home.
We chose Simone as our agent as she was highly recommended, and it was an absolute pleasure working with her. Simone was realistic in managing our expectations in a market we were not very familiar with. She went above and beyond the call of duty on numerous occasions. Simone has outstanding communication skills and kept us in the loop every step of the way.
As I said to Paul McDonald after the auction, Simone is a star and a credit to the team at McDonald Upton. I would have no hesitation in recommending Simone to anyone who would like to work with an enthusiastic first class real estate agent. She is a thorough professional.
Thank you, Simone - you're a star!

I went with McDonald Upton to sell my house as I have dealt with Paul McDonald over a number of years in buying/selling of property. Simone Tramontana was the main agent I dealt with over the campaign, and I can highly recommend her to future clients. I was very impressed with her honesty, knowledge and commitment in doing her best for all parties. She provided excellent feedback after each OFI and kept me up to date about potential buyers, and was always very reassuring. I had a great result on auction day by Paul McDonald. I highly recommend Simone Tramontana and also McDonald Upton Real Estate.

Over the years we have purchased and sold many properties here in Melbourne and in Brisbane Queensland and through the process we have met and dealt with numerous Real Estate Agents some of which were reasonably good others not so good. It is only when we met with Simone Tramontana who is with McDonald Upton Real Estate Agency that we came to appreciate the difference between Real Estate Agents. We met Simone when we had a knock on our door, introducing herself, when the Penthouse in our building was sold, should we decide in the future to sell our unit. Simones’ approach was so professional that some months later the opportunity to sell our apartment presented itself. It was a very easy decision and that was to proceed with McDonald Upton Real Estates Agency and in particular with a direct request that Simone Tramontana represent us. Simones’ approach to the entire process was nothing other than courteous, professional, caring and most importantly compassionate and beyond anyone’s expectations. Her attention to detail and constant support to my wife was really extraordinary. Her perseverance in obtaining the price we were looking for was not easy at a softened market yet, her hard and honest work realised the sale. Simone, there is so much more we would like to say and hope that in future you remain in our life. Thank you again for all your hard work, we grew to love you as a person and a friend you made us feel to be. We wish you the very best for the future and sincerely hope that other people like ourselves get to meet you and appreciate your honest and compassionate work as we did. Thank you again Simone.

We entrusted the sale of our home to Simone and are absolutely thrilled with the result. Throughout the campaign, Simone was always available, clear and concise with communication and always had our best interests as vendors at heart. Simone’s real expertise came to the fore when negotiating with buyers to achieve the highest price possible for us and our dream price was smashed thanks to her exceptional negotiation skills. Her unwavering determination to get us the best price was exemplified when we received a call at 7 pm on a Saturday night, to let us know that she had been negotiating with 2 parties for hours and had extracted an extra $20,000 and a signed contract. Safe to say we were ecstatic. I have no problems recommending Simone to any prospective vendors as not only is she in your corner, but she jumps the ropes, throws on the gloves and fights for you.

We could not be happier with the way Simone conducted herself during our sales campaign. Nothing was too much trouble, she always went above and beyond our expectations. We were always fully informed of the progress with clear communication and she followed up every detail regarding prospective buyers. She put us at ease when things got stressful. She is honest, organised and we had complete confidence in her ability. We have no hesitation recommending Simone. Our property sold above our expectation.

I was so pleased to have Simone as our agent. I had met Simone at a previous auction where she had left a very good impression on me so much so that I was really happy to have her as my agent. Simone communicated very well throughout the auction process both after open inspections and on auction day. What was a very stressful event was made very easy with Simone and Paul's calm and thorough approach. The whole team were very professional.

To Paul McDonald and Simone Tramontana,
On behalf of Karen and myself, I would like to congratulate McDonald Upton Real Estate on the professionalism in providing their expertise on our Family Home of the last 17 years. The idea of getting ready to sell was very overwhelming and then we spoke with a few agents and I still couldn’t get the feel for what was the right way to go. I was recommended to speak to Paul through word of mouth recommendations and that is when I first met Paul and Simone. Instantly, Karen and I got this comfortable feeling that things would be in experienced and capable hands. Paul explained in our meetings how things would work and through the following weeks that is exactly what took place. Simone was very thoughtful in her ideas and took a real personal involvement in our property. My family is personally involved in fundraising to build a house for young adults living with disabilities. Thanks largely to a very sizeable personal donation form Paul McDonald we are well on our way to achieving that reality. I would have no hesitation in recommending McDonald Upton Real Estate to anyone in the future. I would be happy to discuss anything pertaining to McDonald Upton Real Estate if you would like to contact me personally.
