What our clients say about John Steeghs:
“John was one of three Agents that I had arranged to come to my house to do an appraisal. His expectation of my sale price was much higher than the other 2 agents had quoted me. Having worked in my area and having sold properties before, John felt confident that he could achieve this. Which he did!! Netting me between S12,000 -$15,000 more than I had anticipated/expected, which was a fantastic outcome.
John’s manner and professionalism was outstanding and nothing is too much trouble for him, he is very approachable and reachable at short notice. He explained everything in detail and kept in constant touch with me. He was able to sell my house within 10 days of it going on the market and he assisted me through the sale process, which was very much appreciated. My sale finalised in November 2016. I would highly recommend John for anyone considering selling their property and without hesitation I will be using him again for any future selling I may undertake.”
- Ann Holden
“After getting three different agent valuations, I found John Steeghs as the most professional and knowledgeable of the property market. John maintained a highly professional eagerness to achieve the best possible price for our property.
We are extremely happy that John also exceeded by $20,000, the other agents suggested sale/valuation price and sold our property on the first weekend of viewing. We highly recommend anyone seeking an agent to sell their property to meet John Steeghs. You won't be disappointed. Thanks again John for all your hard work.”
-David & Angela Wilson
“When illness forced us to consider selling our home and downsizing, we had no hesitation in contacting John who had been our agent 12 years earlier. John’s professional attitude is what brought us back, but it is his honesty, communication skills and compassion for our situation that we will always remember and be thankful for. He made what was a very emotional time for us as easy as he could with regular phone calls, advice and support. We have no hesitation in recommending John Steeghs as our real estate agent of choice.”
- Margie and Ray Smythe
"We thought we'd be smart when selecting an agent to sell our house in North Toowoomba. We figured the only way to find how an agent performs is to test them out on their home ground - attend open houses, show interest in the house being displayed and see how the agent acts.
After attending quite a few open houses, we found that John Steeghs best met our needs - he was polite and well presented, very knowledgable of the house on offer, showed great people skills and ethics. This was an agent that impressed us.
When we contracted John to sell our home, he first thoroughly inspected our home offering many worthwhile suggestions based on his experience designed to make our house impress potential buyers. Once on the market he was very reassuring during this stressful period by keeping us at ease and feeling that our house was in good hands.
Bottom line was that it was in good hands - John sold our home for 10% more than 3 other agents suggested we could sell it for!
We have no hesitation in recommending John Steeghs as a hard working agent of the highest standards."
- Denis & Joy Hakanson

“Why would we recommend John Steeghs as the preferred real estate agent to sell your property?
Our confidence in John’s abilities comes out of our dealings with him over the past 12 years. If you are looking for a fast talking “fluffy” type of agent you won’t find that with John. He is honest and accurate with his assessment of the real estate market in this area and is realistic with his appraisals. He is very skilled at listening and then tailoring a plan specific to our needs and is always working in our best interests to achieve the best price for our property.
John has always insured that we are kept in the loop with how the sale is progressing providing us with regular updates and feedback.
While this is a personal testimony of our dealings with John, we believe that it could just as easily be echoed by a number of others to whom we have referred him to: our children, our neighbours and our friends.”
-Paul & Jenny Feddema
We have known John Steeghs on both a personal and professional basis for well over ten years. During that time John has sold a number of properties in the Toowoomba area for us.
John’s integrity and depth of experience in Toowoomba real estate has enabled him to provide us with a realistic expectation of the potential sale price of each property before going to market, rather than starting with an overly optimistic figure and then ultimately closing the deal at a much reduced figure. Selling or buying a property can be a stressful exercise, but John’s professionalism and his affable and conscientious nature has helped to smooth the process for us along the way. It is also important for us to work with people we trust and with whom we are able to develop a genuine rapport, so we look forward to involving John in our next real estate transaction.
-Brett & Donna Smith
Thanks John! You made the rather stressful process of selling my 84 – year old mother’s home quite the opposite. It certainly made Mum’s move to Far North Queensland a little less taxing.
Right from the very first meeting, we were impressed with John’s knowledge of our suburb. John explained house sales and expectations in the current market and did not try to obtain our business by giving us an unreal expectation of what Mum’s property was worth. Mum and I felt extremely comfortable and trusted John from the start.
John attentiveness to Mum’s wishes regarding advertising, signage, privacy and buyer viewing assured mum that she had chosen the right person to sell her “Security” – her home of 56 years. John ‘checked in’ regularly giving Mum updates and responded quickly by phone to her enquiries.
John, you went over and beyond what we expected of our real estate agent and this was sincerely appreciated.
