Buying a house is a daunting prospect. The first contact you have with the agent showing the house can determine if you are going to continue your interest in that property or not. Michael Harries was the agent showing 58C Stevens Street. I immediately liked the property, but I also felt that Michael's relaxed and friendly demeanor made me feel more comfortable as I looked through the property. He followed up early in the week, but at no point did I feel he was being pushy, something that would have immediately got me off side. After a 2nd inspection, I made an offer. Not being familiar with the process, Michael's expertise came to the fore, making me feel at ease with the whole process. My initial thought of real estate agents are they are working in the interests of the vendor. That is true, but with Michael I felt he definitely had my interests front and foremost in the process as well.
I would definitely recommend Michael as the agent handling your property needs.
We recently sold our property through Michael Harries from the Fremantle Caporn Young office. We actually bought the property through Michael four years earlier, and contacted him when we were selling because we had had such a pleasant buying experience. Michael was a great agent; very proactive and very responsive throughout the process. Michael also provided us with a lot of sound advice throughout, which was much appreciated given the uncertainty in the market currently. The support from the rest of the office was excellent as well, right down to having our property featured in the local Fremantle newspaper. In the end, we got a good result and in a pretty quick turnaround, especially given the market. We would definitely use Caporn Young, and Michael in particular, again.
Just sold another house with Caporn Young! Since 2004 we have sold three houses, bought two and rented one all though Caporn Young Fremantle. Their service is professional, efficient and friendly. Buying, selling and renting is seamless. Special mention to Connie, Michael and Rimu - thanks team.
Thanks Michael Harries and Caporn Young for an excellent standard in real estate. We are very happy with our recent purchase in Halls Head and the professionalism and care taken every step of the way.Certainly recommend your services. Thanks so much Michael we are thrilled to be bringing up our twins in such a lovely new home.Rebecca and Leigh Perry
We recently sold our home of 37 years in South Fremantle. Michael Harries, from Caporn Young's Fremantle branch, was our agent and we thank him for his professionalism, tenacity, patience and understanding throughout the difficult time of letting go of our home. Michael's energy and positivity were infectious. His communication with us was exceptional, keeping us in the loop and updated on everyone who had been through the house. The bottle of champers after the sale was a bonus! Thanks Michael.
I just wanted to pass on my thanks to you and your team for the success in selling our house. We engaged Michael Harries after meeting him at another home open, being impressed by his manner, professionalism and the way he engaged. After seeking multiple proposals from Agents to sell our house we engaged Capron Young, believing in the overall sales strategy, the support we would have from Michael and planned marketing campaign.
Having a range established for our homes expected sale price, we were so impressed that within the first weekend, holding only two home opens (to deal with the demand) we sold our house for well above our expectations.
We have been impressed with Michael from start to finish and the overall service and support from your team.
Who said selling houses had to be difficult!
Appreciate everyone’s effort in the process, a job well done.
We just purchased a property through Michael Harries at Caporn Young, and were impressed by the efficient service right through to settlement, and by the professional way he handled negotiations with the seller.
We have found Caporn Young to be highly professional in our house sale. Michael Harries provided a strategy which to his credit worked perfectly. Michael was diligent and communicated with us at all times. We highly recommend CY to all prospective sellers.
Michael has a very professional approach and we felt very comfortable with him. He is very friendly and was professional in all aspects of the sale of our home.
Zoe was also spot on. There was no hesitation with her answers to our questions and queries.
We had great service with Michael and Zoe - we would call it silver service in Real Estate.
Thanks to Michael Harries for selling our house within 6 weeks in this difficult to gauge market. His marketing and advice from day one was second to none and along with his profession manner through the offer negotiations we would have no hesitation to to recommend him and his team to anyone wishing to sell their home!
We were happy with selling our property at the price point we were aiming for, which in this market is not often achieved. Both Michael and Stefanie were responsive and worked hard for every lead. We would recommend Stefanie and Michael at Caporn Young to sell our next property.
We first met Michael at a home open when we were contemplating buying. Michael asked us what we were looking for in the way of a home, as well as considering what would suit our lifestyle. Michael then recommended a place in South Fremantle, which was perfect and we ended up purchasing the property. Michael kept in touch with us, and after approximately two years we were ready to put our home in Melville on the market so we could move into to the South Fremantle property. Michael’s professionalism and attention to detail meant there was absolutely no hesitation in choosing him as our real estate agent. After consultation and recommendation from Michael we decided to auction our home. Despite the nerves of an auction, we were successful on auction day and ended up with a result that we were happy with. Michael’s friendly and non-pushy approach means that we have no hesitation in recommending Michael, and thank him for the attention to detail and his efficiency every time we talked in person or over the phone.
Dear Stefanie, Michael and Zoe, we would like to express our sincere thanks with your assistance regarding the purchase of our new home. From our very first contact with Caporn Young to settlement (yesterday!), you have surpassed our expectations. If it wasn’t for the super-Stefanie Dobro, who: met with us to write our offer on a Saturday afternoon, drove around Perth on a wet Saturday night to get both sellers signatures and then met with us at 10:30pm that evening in the city to finalise everything before I got on a boat the next day, it’s fair to say, we would never have been able to secure this property. We can’t thank-you enough for your willingness to go the extra mile for us in this regard, Stefanie. Following this, we were impressed with the efficient, friendly and highly professional, Zoe Ware. Zoe managed all administration, appointments and contact with the utmost efficiency. She would keep us up to date with where all requests were at (regarding access, paperwork etc) and knowing that Zoe was following up any requests instantly put our minds at rest. In Stefanie’s absence, Michael Harries assisted with our final phase and was so impressive as well. We had some maintenance requests and Michael really went above and beyond to listen to what was important to us and assist with organising this request on our day of settlement to ensure a happy outcome for all. We could not recommend Caporm Young highly enough. Stefanie Dobro, Zoe Ware and Michael Harries are exceptional and have been so impressive throughout our buying process. Sally and James (buyers, East Fremantle, May 2016)
Stefanie & Michael were a great team with a high degree of professionalism & dedication to selling our home. They always went the extra mile. To say they are hard-working would be an understatement. In what was a drawn out negotiation process and not the best market to sell in, they handled it exceptionally well and we are very happy with the outcome.
Stefanie Dobro and the team worked out an excellent sale strategy. We weren’t initially sure that an auction on election day would really work. We accepted the advice to go with a short selling period and July 2nd auction, we were kept up-to-date all the way through and the outcome was beyond what we had hoped for and expected. Zoe Ware’s assistance with appointments and details was meticulous and Michael Harries’ briefings about the auction process gave us growing confidence that all was in hand. It went so smoothly on the day. Delighted seller and, we were told, delighted buyer! We will be speaking with Stephanie today about the sale of our Riverside Road and I will mention this suggestion to her in this process. We certainly have been delighted with CY’s customer service and attentiveness at every point and look forward to working with the sales team for this next step with the Riverside Road sale.
I'd like to share a quick reflection on my experience with Michael Harries, who acted as the selling agent for a property in Fremantle which my partner and I have just bought. Throughout the transaction Michael was absolutely fantastic to deal with. He negotiated in good faith between ourselves and the sellers, was extremely flexible to our requirements and was very understanding of some issues that cropped up during the settlement period. For this we are incredibly grateful, particularly as this was our first property purchase. We would absolutely consider coming back to Michael in the future should we be looking to buy or sell. Please do pass on our thanks to him and the rest of the team.
Big thank you to Michael (Harries) for helping us sell our beautiful little house. We love our home and, after 16 years, are only selling it out of necessity i.e. we desperately need more room for our growing girls! We chose Michael through previous interactions while searching for our new home. We missed out on a home he was auctioning but he continued to help us in our search until we finally found what we were looking for (through another agent unfortunately). Michael is the only real estate agent we have encountered that we felt we could trust. With Michael there is absolutely no bullshit, pressure or manipulation. In a terrible market, with a very emotional and attached seller (me), Michael managed to persist and get us a price we are happy with. So, thank you Michael - and sorry for all the tears!
As we all know selling the family home can be quite a stressful and uncertain time. We were wanting the best possible result for our property, with the least amount of pain possible. Right from our first meeting with Stefanie and Michael they made us feel as though we had made the right choice. They were both completely professional, enthusiastic and energetic, and that approach never wavered throughout the whole process. They provide us with the services of a stylist who made us feel as though we had everything looking at its best and ready to sell. Backed by a great team and advertising campaign, the numbers we had going through our home from the very first home open gave us confidence in the process. Stefanie and Michael make you feel that they are working really hard to get the best result for everybody involved, not just themselves. I would recommend Team Dobro to anyone we know that’s looking to sell. Their integrity and professionalism is to be commended. It also has to be mentioned that Stefanie’s strong competitive drive makes her a winner and not surprisingly highly awarded. A lot of time is spent working together throughout the campaign. At the end of it all, it’s true to say, that we have the utmost admiration and respect for both Michael and Stefanie both personally and as selling agents.
We had met Stefanie at a few open houses in the years prior to selling our house and were struck by how friendly and engaging she was compared to other agents. When we came to sell we considered several agents but were most impressed with Caporn Young's marketing strategy and approach to the sale. The marketing materials and house photos showed the house in its best possible light and we had lots of interest. We sold very quickly and had several offers on the table. The process of selling with Stefanie and Michael was very smooth and they were both a pleasure to deal with. They both went above and beyond to achieve the best possible price. We would have no hesitation in using them again or recommending to others.
Stefanie and Michael achieved a great result for the sale of our house in Fremantle. They are extremely efficient and professional, and provided a constant flow of activity and communication throughout the entire process. They took our house to Auction and it sold on that first day, without needing to go to market by normal sale. We were very happy with all of the work they did and the results they achieved. If you are looking to sell your home then we would definitely recommend that you use Stefanie and Michael and their team.
The comments I would make with regards to Michael would be: always professional, punctual and reliable, hard working, consistent, calming presence in the stressful environment of an auction, knowledgeable in the local market, can always be counted upon to deliver a great result.
Just a note of thanks from myself to the 3 of you for the professional and courteous manner in which you have engaged and communicated throughout this whole process. Expectations were well managed in light of weaker market conditions and I felt very comfortable with the advice and feedback you provided.
Stefanie and Michael provided a highly professional service, they made the whole process of buying a house easy and everything ran smoothly. Before I knew it I was living in my dream home.
We are happy to say that we appreciated Stefanie’s efforts in finding our new home. She had extensive knowledge on the Fremantle and East Fremantle area the Capron Young team were professional to deal with and helpful in the process of purchase and settlement.
We just wanted to pass on our thanks to Stefanie and Michael for the sale of our house in what we thought was going to be a difficult market to sell. We were impressed by their professional yet warm and friendly manner. They, together with Zoe, make a great sales team. We were in the UK when the house was being marketed yet they kept in close touch with us despite the time difference, checking and sending emails at unsocial hours Perth time in order for negotiations to progress. They worked very hard on our behalf to get us the best possible result and we would not hesitate to recommend them to others.
Among the very high caliber of real estate agents in Fremantle, we are very happy that we chose Stefanie Dobro and Michael Harries. Their professionalism and knowledge of the Fremantle area is second to none. They are people’s people and were excellent to deal with. Their knowledge of the market meant that they got us the result that we hoped for. We highly recommend them and we will use them again next time we go to market.
Yay! We just went unconditional on our new home! Thanks so much to Mick, Stefanie, Zoe and the team at Caporn Young. They have all been fantastic, all the way through. Thanks so much guys, we are very grateful, excited and looking forward to the big move. Legends!
I was impressed with the professionalism shown by Stefanie, Michael and the Caporn Young team. From the initial marketing strategy, home inspections advice and achieving the sale, the service provided was exceptional. The buyer was also happy and even commented that we had a good Agent. I am pleased to recommend them to any vendor as good Real Estate Agents.
We researched our options carefully before approaching Stefanie and Michael. We were aware that we needed agents with a strong team around them and excellent marketing strategies to maximise the exposure of our property. We were aware of Stefanie's highly developed skills in negotiating the best possible price and to our delight this is exactly what was achieved for our property. Stefanie and Michael are the epitome of professionalism, they never sugar-coated anything and instead gave us accurate and comprehensive information. We recommend them to anyone who is looking for the best possible result delivered in a highly professional manner.
We sold our principal residence with Stefanie and Team Dobro over two years ago prior to it even hitting the open market for a great price. Recently we had to reluctantly sell an investment property and we wanted to secure the best possible price in the market for our future plans. Stefanie and Michael went above and beyond the call of duty by driving around the southern suburbs until 11pm to secure the best offer for us from prospective buyers that emerged after the auction. Bothering to go this extraordinary extra mile for a relatively lower priced property was extremely impressive and secured us $40,000 over the closing auction price. The advertising campaign was exceptional and we secured a more than solid price for our investment. All the staff of Team Dobro are friendly and highly competent and accessible - they make a stressful experience run smoothly. We will not be going to any other company in the future.
Thank you so much for all your hard work. We know that behind every great estate agent is a great team. You were always incredibly prompt, efficient and friendly.
We are most happy to recommend the services of Michael Harries as a professional, enthusiastic and above all caring Sales Executive. He displays integrity in all his dealings which is rare in the profession.
Michael led his motivated team to produce a very successful sales campaign which culminated in a great result on Auction day. We are able to make this recommendation without reservation.
I am thrilled with my new home (luckily I like painting)!
I didn't get to meet Stephanie, but Michael made the usually stressful, buying of a property, painless. I have nothing but praise for Michael who was unfailingly courteous and helpful throughout the whole process. Hey, and thanks for the bubbly guys – it will go down well, shared with a friend, after the removalists have done their thing tomorrow. Thanks for all your help!
I met Michael quite early on, before I listed my property with him. When I re-initiated, Michael was ready and remembered all of the details about the property. Although it was a complicated sale, Michael was very proactive, helpful and assisted in every aspect. His communication was fantastic and he kept me up to date and informed of the progress. Michael has great people skills and he was very helpful, but not intrusive. Thank you Michael!
Anne and myself would like to thank the Caporn Young Fremantle team that helped us purchase 30b Marine Terrace, Fremantle. In particular , Michael Harries , who visited our home on several occasions , handled the offer /counter offer process superbly , and made both Anne and myself feel very comfortable and confident with his approach during this stage. Our thanks also go to Emma Powell who we understand was the direct contact with the vendor, who , with her feel / feedback from the vendor and liaising with Michael , ensured our offer was accepted. We'd also like to thank Aiden Casey , who , while showing Anne various properties in Fremantle , suggested to her to have a look at Emma Powell's listing at 30b Marine Terrace, which he thought might suit our needs. Again , thanks to the Caporn Young Team at Fremantle.
We met Michael Harries through a friend, and when it came to selling our home, what really appealed to us was his genuine, down to earth nature and no nonsense attitude. Michael is honest, manufacturing realistic expectations from the outset, which we so appreciated considering we were selling our very first home. Throughout the negotiations and sale of our home, Michael conducted himself with utter professionalism and tireless effort. He is approachable and personable and a fantastic individual. Both Michael and Caporn Young should be commended on the manner in which they conduct business and build relationships. We highly recommend Michael and the team to be entrusted with the sale of any home, and would definitely use his services if required in the future.
