How’s the serenity – great, easy buy!

Had a great experience with John.
Being a Gundaroo local himself who’s raised a family in the area, had plenty of good oil on the village and area. We had competing priorities with family illness, and he was genuinely understanding and didn’t pressure us with the sales process. He had a genuine understanding of the seller’s motivation, able to answer all our dumb questions, and was able to give us confidence that our offer would be acceptable first go.
Once our offer was accepted, John was really approachable on negotiating with all the tradies, banks and solicitors, and again as long as we could show we were making genuine progress, there was no pressure if there was the odd hiccup or delay on our end. Super accommodating in sorting pre-settlement checks out, with some really great vendors to help. Easy settlement too and was able to negotiate a settlement period that made it really easy for us to move into our lovely new home with minimum stress.
John’s wife, Nicola, was also an amazing source of advice on renting our old home out as well. A really lovely couple. All up, 10/10 and just loving our new home.

Fabulous Agent

John has been a great agent and always a pleasure to deal with.  He never gave up and pushed until the deal was done. 

He went out of his way to please, both us the seller and the buyer.  I have had dealings with John in commercial and domestic rental scenarios as well, and it has always been great dealing with him and his staff members. 

I highly recommend his services to anyone who may be looking for an estate agent.

I would highly recommend John and team.

John consistently gave us sound and professional advice when selling our home in Bungendore. I was kept informed regularly and any queries I might have had were also addressed promptly.

Thank you again.

In April 2020 our family concluded a excellent relationship with Brady’s Real Estate, during which Nicola and her team managed our much-loved family home in the country before handing it over to John to sell on our behalf.

After seven years—and four different tenants—the property went on the market still in its original impeccable condition, and with improved gardens and surrounds. A landlord can hardly ask for more. The results speak for themselves; responsible tenants carefully chosen with the needs of the property in mind. The rental statements arrived like clockwork at the end of each month, error free. From our point of view, the process was at all times effortless.

When it came time to sell, Nicola and John joined forces to work with us to establish the market value and begin the process. What none of us knew at the start, was that we would be launching the sale directly into the face of a sequence of extreme and uncontrollable events, any one of which—on its own—could have fatally prejudiced the outcome: a huge bushfire only 3 kilometers away; the world’s worst air quality; drought and endless record-breaking summer temperatures; flooding rains; and, finally, nothing less than the worst global health pandemic in a century. Yet throughout the marketing phase John remained cool, patient and positive. And, ultimately, he was a safe pair of hands when brokering the final deal with the eventual buyers. Again, despite the massive obstacles, the process was, for us at least, effortless. Most importantly, we achieved a sale price at the upper end of our expectations; once again, the result speaks for itself.

Brady’s Real Estate is a boutique family business which we can highly recommend. If you care about how your property is treated whilst rented, if you value consistent, accurate and timely financial administration, and if you want a professional sale that maximizes your financial return, Nicola, John, Ebony and their team deliver.

Even from a buyer’s perspective, John and his family-run business were nothing but helpful and accommodating. No phone call or e-mail enquiry went unanswered. Thank-you John and your family for making the purchase of our forever home such a hassle-free experience!

Excellent to work with! Highly Recommend!

Working with John Brady and Brady’s Real Estate has been a wonderful experience. John is very personable and knows his stuff! They are all friendly, professional and extremely helpful at Brady’s. They went above and beyond to support us and are extremely good at what they do. The only thing disappointing about the experience was having to say goodbye after our house was sold. We hired John after he originally sold our house to us years ago. We had such a pleasant experience that we wanted to work with Brady’s again. We would highly recommend Brady’s Real Estate to anyone who asks and will definitely be working with them again if we sell in the future.

Happy Vendor – 245 The Mountain Road, Bungendore

We bought our property in 2003 and John was the vendors agent.

That experience was so easy and comfortable for us we decided then that we would use John if we ever wanted to sell The Mountain Road.

Just over 17 years later and John’s knowledge and experience proved our original decision to be the right one.

John and Ebony provided excellent advice and their preparation and experience with the selling of Our property was invaluable.

They presented our property beautifully, and after three open houses, and on the market for less than a week, we had an offer which we accepted.

John is ethical and not pushy, definitely a pleasure to deal with.

I cannot recommend John and Ebony more highly to anyone thinking of selling in the Canberra region.

The whole team at Bradys Real Estate were a pleasure to deal with throughout the whole process. 

We found John to be very knowledgeable with rural properties and was always able to provide accurate answers to questions for their listed properties that we were viewing. He always allowed us to take the time to thoroughly look at the properties in question and we never felt rushed at an opening.

Ebony was also a pleasure to deal with, she promptly responded to our enquiries in a comprehensive manner every time.

What we liked the most about this team is that if they didn’t have an answer they wouldn’t bluff their way through, they always sought clarification and came back to us with the correct info (which often confirmed our own research on the subject).

I wouldn’t hesitate to buy or sell through Bradys real estate in the future! All the best and thanks for your tireless efforts!

Really Impressed!

We are really impressed with the professionalism and responsiveness of Brady’s Real Estate.

We have had a long association with John and Nicola Brady.

We first met John when he sold us our farm 16 years ago and now he has been instrumental in its recent sale.

We also rented out the house on our farm for several years and Bradys have been our managing agents.

During this time they provided exemplary service, ensuring we had good tenants and that the property was well maintained.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Bradys to anyone looking for the complete property service.
