Hi, we are Grant and Christina Penrose. We share a lifelong passion for real estate and together we have almost 60 years of experience as real estate agents in Brisbane, helping people buy and sell properties all over Brisbane.
We have a big vision for Penrose Real Estate. By working with clients as though they were family, we aim to become the go-to agency in Brisbane built on trust, care, and attention. We offer a commitment to not only bring you the sale of your dreams or find you the perfect property, but a positive and enjoyable experience.
When working with the us, you can rest assured that getting you results is our priority.
We had plenty of questions for Grant. His patience, attention to detail, his honesty and integrity all contributed to the success of the sale of our house. Grant provided daily updates on enquiries on the property, and weekly written updates on comments from the open houses. Grant ensured we understood every step of the open negotiation process so that we went into the final bidding stage fully informed.
The level of service is phenomenal. Nothing was too much trouble and they helped make what was a stressful time more easeful. They worked super hard to ensure that we got the very best price possible. They have the highest level of service I have seen for a very long time and it was like a breathe of fresh air. I cannot recommend this team highly enough!
Christina & Grant are totally professional. This is the second sale they have handled for us. Nothing is left to chance. They supplied quality trades who prepped the houses for sale. We followed their recommendations and advice with results well in excess of our expectations.
Grant & Christina put quality over quantity when it came to helping my family to sell our home. They knew exactly what to do and gave us excellent guidance along the way. We could not have been happier working with Grant & Christina! They are professionals in every aspect of the real estate business. Would definitely use their service again.
Grant is an honest, helpful and reliable agent. Although we knew he was extremely busy, he always made us feel like we were his only clients responding promptly to all of our questions.
Grant has sold 3 properties for me over the years and that speaks for itself. I wouldn’t have gone back twice let alone three times if I felt he could not perform. I highly recommend Grant to anyone who is intending to sell because he will give you 100%.
Christina is a lovely person and her knowledge and advice prior to our listing was invaluable. We had one open house which resulted in three offers, one of which was accepted. We were extremely happy with Christina's advice and professionalism and we were very happy with the result she achieved for us.
We have bought and sold numerous houses and units through Grant and Christina Penrose.
I would have to say that they are not only the most professional and passionate people in their industry that I've come across, but I think their customer service, attention to detail and results would stand up in any service industry anywhere in the country.
Let us also thank you for the fine work that you put into ensuring that our house was sold within my budget range and in a timely manner. Your efforts were most appreciated.
My experience dealing with Grant Penrose from Remax was exceptional. He sold my property in Boundary rd very quickly and kept me up to date and informed throughout the entire process. I would gladly recommend his service to anyone who requires a professional agent.
We highly recommend Grant, he has always gone above and beyond for us even in the most difficult of situations and has always well exceeded our expectations.
From the very outset I found the service provided by Christina and Grant to be totally professional, friendly and positive, always punctual, always cheerful and always ready to go the extra mile. Doing business with Christina and Grant was a pleasure!
It is always best to choose an agent that has rich local knowledge and experience selling in your region. They should be available to you for any questions you may have, easy to talk to, experienced negotiators with a proven track record in the method of sale you wish to use. Agents should be up to date with current marketing trends and opportunities and be passionate about promoting the features and benefits of your property well, with consistent and with the best interests of your property in mind.
Ideally, your home should be listed during a sellers’ market – where more buyers are searching for houses than people selling them. Spring is the most popular time to sell, which can work in your favour or against you, but Autumn is a close competitor, and you may experience benefit from selling during a traditionally quieter period. Your property will have a specific ‘best time’ to sell, dependent on your location, surrounding sales market and the weather trends of your region, and your agent can work with you to determine the ripest time to list your property.
The amount of time it takes to sell your property depends on several factors such as the current housing market of where you live, the readiness of your property and the local knowledge of your agent. When choosing Grant and Christina, your property has the best chance to sell quickly due to their in-depth knowledge and experience selling houses in Queensland. They will know the best tips and tricks to get your home up to standard in both looks and value, and how to not only get buyers through the door but to turn the buyer’s interest in your property into a sale.
There are several costs involved with selling your property. Grant and Christina work with honesty and integrity and can walk you through all costs you should expect to encounter and suggest budget-friendly or easy payment options. Some essential yet costly aspects you may not have considered include the cost of a conveyancer to ensure all legal matters are taken care of, the marketing costs, the costs of staging and possibly editing the interior of your home, and the building and pest inspections. Most of these costs can be included in Easy Ad Pay so you don't have to cover them all up front.
Marketing and advertising are essential components to selling your home. If buyers are not informed that your property is available and open for inspection, it can stay on the market for a very long time and potentially sell for a low price. Your agent should have a proven track record of successful marketing campaigns with strategies for advertising that will reach the largest number of potential buyers. Grant and Christina offer low or no cost options that capitalise on their extensive database, along with other alternative marketing strategies with proven results.
Open homes are an excellent marketing tactic and are a great way to get the maximum amount of people viewing your property. Open homes provide a cost-effective and simple way to bring in a broad number of potential buyers, including those who drive past, and you can prepare your home to shine on inspection day. You don’t have to host an open home but they are highly recommended for a quick and efficient sale and for creating competition among potential buyers.
If you are looking for a quick and efficient sale – an auction is the way to do it. When deciding between an auction and a private sale, you need to consider:
An auction environment has the potential to increase the property’s value, boost the buyer’s emotional connection, offer the most profit, and grant you with a set date that your house will sell. Additionally, an auction will offer the most return on your marketing costs and offer a quick sale and an immediate cash unconditional contract.
Australia has some of the most stringent purchasing rules in the world for overseas property investors, so targeting an overseas buyer may not be as effective as an interstate or local buyer. We provide a video tour showing the features and benefits that will give the best insight into your home for buyers who are unavailable to attend the inspections. We have a network of buyers beyond Brisbane and can extend your advertising to match these buyers by listing in national and international sites. The right agent will know how to feature the best parts of your home and get the most eyes on your property, whether they are local or international, and should be flexible to work with you and the buyer to achieve the best results.
