Gerrit and Rose Knauth

Good, professional agent

We found him to be highly professional.

We first met Simon when we bought the house through him 14 years ago. We have kept in touch over the years, so we had no hesitation in going to him when we wanted to sell it.  Once again we found him to be highly professional and always pleasant and helpful in so many ways. We wish him all the best in his career.

The Best Agent to Sell my Property - Simon Farrar

I would like to record my appreciation of Simon's professional conduct

I met several agents, due to inspecting properties prior to placing my home unit on the market.  Of all the agents I had contact with, it was Simon Farrar of Jacobs and Lowe that I considered to be the best agent to sell my property.  Whilst my property was on the market, I received feedback from Simon after every inspection and I would like to record my appreciation of Simon’s professional conduct, his pleasant manner and attitude in the satisfactory sale of my property.  I have no hesitation in recommending Simon for all real estate matters.

Excellent outcome! - Vivienne Spencer

So I was looking for a quick sale whilst achieving the best financial result. A big ask. Well Vivienne delivered!

Selling my elderly mothers house whilst she was still living in it and me living an hours drive away had the potential for some issues; complicating matters further my mother was moving into a retirement village two weeks after the property was put on the market. So I was looking for a quick sale whilst achieving the best financial result. A big ask. Well Vivienne delivered! The house was sold within a week and at a price which was considered at the top of the market; everything that Vivienne said she would do she did. She was very considerate of the fact my mother still occupied the house and her comprehensive inspection reports gave me a lot of confidence that we were on the right track. Vivienne has made the process painless; she is experienced, thorough and effective, I would highly recommend her.

We recently sold our holiday home at Somers and contracted the sale to Jacobs and Lowe of Balnarring.  John Hanna was sales manager at the time and handled all aspects of our sale including valuation, contractual arrangements, advertising, promotion and face to face selling.


Simply stated, John handled each facet of the sale in an excellent manner. He quickly gained our confidence and guided and advised us through the intricacies of getting the best prices possible.  His pleasant and open manner paired very neatly with a totally professional approach.


On a day to day basis we were impressed by his thorough “follow-up” to each and every inquiry and his consistent reporting back to us on any progress made or interest shown.  If John’s approach is an indication of the policy of Jacobs and Lowe, then he is a fine advocate for that firm.  Be that as it may, we have no hesitation in recommending him as an honest and dependable agent whose total professionalism is beyond reproach.

I was delighted with the service that Simon Farrar provided my husband and I when selling our property in Mornington.  Simon was always available and kept us up to date on a very regular basis with how the sale was progressing. Our sale was complicated by the fact that we were conducting this transaction from a distance as we were living in Queensland.  Simon was very professional and keen to ensure we understood all aspects of the sale. We were extremely pleased with the outcome of the sale as we achieved a price beyond our expectation and this was definitely the result of Simon’s hard work.
