In May 2017 my husband and I sold our property in North Melbourne and we were lucky enough to have JA Cain manage the successful sale of our house.   
 
The JA Cain team embody all that anyone could ever ask for in relation to customer service. I would describe their style as comfortable, practical and warm. They were honest, supportive, professional, knowledgeable and compassionate. Nothing was too much trouble and we always felt like we were a priority. This family owned and run company is driven by core values that are not just words but evidence through true action. Given that selling a house can be a very stressful time the team at JA Cain Real Estate were incredible, always made us feel comfortable, we could ask any question, you never felt silly and nothing was ever too much trouble. This is a business that can easily be described as consistently and constantly going above and beyond.
 
So if you are looking for a real estate team that will take care of you, prioritize you, and take on a true partnership approach to something so important to you – then you don’t need to look any further than JA Cain!

In the last few months I’ve been fortunate enough to be both a vendor and new home buyer through J A Cain. At every step Bryan, Chris, Michelle, Brendan and the team have been a pleasure to deal with; professional, genuine and eager to please. As a vendor my overwhelming feeling was that they sincerely wanted the best result for my wife and I, this is opposed to ‘any result’, which was my greatest fear of other agents. Their advice was spot on and most importantly unpressured. They were outstanding!

Whilst I expect Bryan and Chris were also selling other properties at the same time, I always felt they were 100% focused on my property. I have no doubt this is a great point of difference that only a family owned business like J A Cain can offer.

Similarly (and coincidentally), when buying, my experience with J A Cain was the same. They were equally as excited for my wife and I, and have been no less than a pleasure to work with.

I unreservedly recommend J A Cain to anyone who is considering selling.

2/37 DONNA BUANG STREET, CAMBERWELL
 

 

Paul and I would like to express our gratitude for the fantastic result we achieved with the sale of our Townhouse at 2/37 Donna Buang Street Camberwell.  From the time we first met Bryan and Chris Cain the whole process of preparing the house i.e. decluttering for photographs, the disposal and donations of nearly all of our furniture, legal advice necessary for the sale (because we were re-locating overseas 3 months before settlement), went very smoothly.

This is a family business so the members of the Cain family, Brian, Mary, Michelle and Chris all work together as a Dream Team. Nothing gets forgotten as they seamlessly work together. After the Open days we were kept up to date with numbers of potential buyers. They made the entire process completely stress free and easy and we have no hesitation in recommending them to all of our friends and family.

Regards, 

Rhonda and Paul Dawson

From time to time in life we have a need for either a purchase and/or sale of property.  During this period of time and in the process, we are presented with the challenge of researching and selecting the appropriate agent to fulfill our requirements. This process was carried out recently for the sale of our property at 1/41 Grandview Road, Box Hill South. 

Our sincere thanks to the J A Cain team for doing a great job not only professionally but personally in a friendly, reassuring manner and achieving the best results at our recent auction.

Please see below some examples of your excellent service during this anxious time in anyone's life.

  • Capable of your total care and consideration in delivering on customer's needs 
  • An outstanding team that works collaboratively to meet and achieve customer's needs with good results
  • Interest not only in your customer's concerns no matter how big or small but more importantly respecting and understanding their needs and providing valuable market based opinion with the view to deliver required outcomes for both the vendor and purchaser.
  • Negotiation skills in delivering satisfactory and pleasing outcomes to both the purchaser and in our case the vendor.

In our opinion, you are first class professionals whom we would have no hesitation in referring our family and friends to fulfill their dreams be it as a purchaser or vendor.

Bryan Cain and his team at JA Cain were a brilliant choice for the sale of our property at Glen Iris - straightforward, honest and immensely knowledgable when it comes to selling real estate.
 
Having them on our side made the sale process much better than we imagined possible. One of Bryan’s best attributes is his engaging and warm personality, which puts buyers and sellers at ease.

55 CELIA STREET, GLEN IRIS
 
 
I wish to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks to the JA Cain team, lead by Bryan, for the successful sale of our Celia St home. 
 
Its was big deal for us to decide to sell our home as part of a downsizing journey so we were looking for an agent who could guide us through the emotional and possibly stressful process of preparing for sale at auction.  At every stage along the journey we felt that JA Cain had our interests as a priority. We felt we were expertly advised in how to prepare and present our home in the advertising and for the Open for Inspections. We were kept very well informed on how the campaign was progressing and any questions or concerns we had were addressed brilliantly.  
 
Happily we achieved a very satisfactory outcome with the sale price at auction and now we look back at the entire experience with nothing but praise for JA Cain's professionalism, market knowledge, and care for and understanding of us as nervous vendors.
 
We would be happy to recommend the JA Cain team to our friends and anyone else who is looking for a great agent.  Please pass on our thanks to all of the team.   
 
Regards, Justin & Mary Murphy

My brother and I sold our family home last year with J.A.Cain. The property market was still riding high at that stage so we didn’t know what to expect.
 
Right from the start, Bryan was up front and honest, supporting his advice with current market data. We knew where we stood, with realistic goals being set for the auction day, leading to a very pleasing result. In the lead up, his staff were always available to answer any concerns and attended to any problems promptly and efficiently.
 
We were constantly updated as the marketing campaign progressed and the auction itself was handled very professionally.
 
We had interviewed other local estate agents to market the property, but went with J.A.Cain due to their longevity in the business, especially in the Ashburton/Camberwell/Glen Iris area.

I had spoken to Bryan Cain earlier this year asking him when was a good time to sell. The honest answer from Bryan was “whenever you’re ready to sell. No pressure, just do it when it suits you”.This gave me great confidence in going with J A CAIN Real Estate because I knew from that moment onwards there would be no ‘Vendor’s conditioning as soon as you have signed the contract’ and no comments like ‘The Markets down we might have to re-evaluate the original valuation’.
 
The original Valuation was not over inflated like a lot of other agencies, who just tell you just what you want to hear.On Auction Day, I gave my opinion on the reserve price and there was no argument. He took it on board and said “we will do our best to reach your figure”.
 
Due to his calming manner, we were at ease right throughout the Auction and we didn’t feel pressured to sell if we didn’t achieve the reserve. We achieved over the reserve and were ecstatic at the great result.Throughout the entire campaign, we were not stressed at all.
 
The J A CAIN team were honest with us and updated us with what was happening at all times, and in the end achieved an outstanding result.
 
My experience with J A CAIN Real Estate is that you’re not just another number to them, you’re an important vendor and they will do everything they can and work extremely hard for their vendors. They will not just try to sell your property and then move on. They have great knowledge, were totally professional, and are acting for you 100% of the time.

Thank you so much for what you do so well.You sold our home at auction for a great price and took all the stress away right throughout the entire campaign.You set very high standards and always perform.The way you kept us informed and your professional manner was so helpful, especially as we are living in Perth and selling in Melbourne!
 
You have been ours and our parents estate agent for several decades now, and we are so lucky to have an agency we totally trust selling our biggest asset. We couldn’t believe how relaxed we were throughout the whole process.

Our family sold our parents unit through J. A. Cain Real Estate and, looking back, it was a very wise decision.
 
The support and advice given by both Bryan and his staff was brilliant.The approach taken by Bryan was utterly caring, respectful and professional. He consulted regularly with clear advice and he was always respectful of family wishes. Mum, as the owner, was always in the forefront of his mind and clearly his greatest concern.
 
Bryan acted at every step of the way, from pre-auction to after the sale, with great honesty, integrity, sense of humour and his actions were always made very clear.
 
We could not have been more pleased with the overall package provided by J. A. Cain and we would have absolutely no hesitation in thoroughly recommending Bryan and his team.
 
Thank you Bryan.

I would highly recommend JA Cain.
 
The entire team headed up by Bryan Cain were always very friendly, professional, and honest, and made the selling experience as stress free as possible.
 
Throughout the entire selling process my wife and I felt comfortable that our property was in good hands and that we weren’t just another sale on their books as is the case with many agencies. In the end we got a price that exceeded our expectations so we couldn’t be happier.
 
Cheers, Sean Robertson

Dear Elia, On behalf of the family please accept our thanks for your commitment and professionalism in handling the sale of dad's property.
 
The sale was conducted in the weeks following our dear mother's death and we appreciate your sympathy and warmth and time involved in meeting with us. Please also thank Bryan , I think I can say that the result exceeded our expectations.Please also thank all the personnel in the rental department, Yolanda and colleagues for all their work including the contract people who attended to certain work at the property, in order to prepare it for sale.  Nothing was ever too much for them.  Every request was dealt with promptly or discussed with us and where appropriate alternatives suggested.
 
Unfortunately I was not at the auction as I was flying back to Australia. 
 
Thank you, Kind Regards, Antoinette J Austin
 
 
 
4/17 HAZEL ST, CAMBERWELL
 
 
I am writting to express my appreciation for the manner in which you, Elia and your wider team managed the listing, marketing and auction of my unit in Camberwell.
 
The whole process was straightforward and relatively easy, culminating in a great result. From our initial meeting I liked the easy going and personal - yet professional - approach, and I always felt very comfortable with the decision to list the property with you. As you are aware, I had been attending all the auctions of similar properties in the area prior to auctioning my own unit - and all were similar crowds in attendance and one or two bidders. 
 
I consider that as Auctioneer Bryan, your attendance at the home-opens was invaluable, and your insight, knowledge and experience on auction day contributed to the successful auction and great result. Combined with Elia and her absolute professionalism, you make an awesome sales team, and I would have no hesitation in recommending J.A. Cain to anyone who wants to sell their property.
 
Yours Sincerely, Janet Riordan

I am a quality builder/developer and expect my product to be showcased at its best, to the widest possible market. 
 
Over the past 10 years I have only sold through J.A. Cain Real Estate. This is because their wise advice, from early design to completion, has been spot on. 
 
Their marketing campaign, including quality brochures, boards and internet coverage has resulted in premium exposure to the market.  Their keen negotiating skills have produced outstanding prices. 
 
I am very proud of my work and have been well rewarded through my association with J A Cain Real Estate.

I cannot thank you enough for your time and effort to assist Kylie and I to get the great result we achieved on Saturday. 
 
It was hard work, but you made it fun with some wry humour and a cheeky grin.  The one time that stands out for me was when you came around on a Sunday night.  You sensed we were stressed about getting the place ready and by dropping in helped us to settle down and relax a little. 
 
No other agent would do what you did that night. Your skill as an auctioneer on the day really shone through. Just an amazing effort, and Kylie and I are delighted to have you help us through this journey.

We faced a difficult decision in the sale of our Camberwell unit, "Should we refurbish at a lot of expense or sell as is." I followed Bryan's advice to sell as is and the property sold within 2 weeks and at a price that was well above our expectations.
 
We were saved weeks of anxiety (and expense).  If we ever have another property, I know which agent we will engage.

I would like to express thanks for the wonderful efforts of J A Cain in selling my house recently.
 
Your approach and support throughout the process made a potentially stressful exercise much smoother and more manageable! I was grateful for your sound advice, while also respecting my wishes in terms of sale price and terms.
 
I felt that you had my best interests at heart, and did everything possible to achieve the best result while also displaying integrity and honesty. I have also appreciated your assistance and advice post sale as I look to purchase.
 
I would be happy to recommend your services to any potential seller.

Thank you for achieving a wonderful result for our family home! In dealing with Bryan Cain we found him to be extremely competent, professional and also very personable.From the onset we felt that Bryan Cain was an extremely trustworthy and experienced professional who genuinely wanted to help us to achieve the best result. He was attuned to our needs, was easy to talk to, and listened to our goals and hopes for selling our family home.
 
He was very willing to offer his time and expertise and answer any questions or concerns we had in a very sincere and reassuring manner. His sense of humour also helped to put us at ease! 
 
Bryan readily referred us to related services that enabled us to get our property ready for sale and it made the whole process seem too easy. We were so impressed with the effort and consideration they put into helping us and supporting us through this emotional time.
 
We felt very confident with their advice in regard to advertising the property and the presentation of the house, and following this advice enabled us to achieve an outstanding result.
 
Being a family business meant they had a genuine understanding of the needs of families.
 
We would not hesitate to highly recommend JA Cain to our friends and family.

Dear Bryan,We would like to convey our warmest thanks to you and all your staff members for the professional way in which you conducted the successful sale of our home.
 
This was our first move in 42 years, and we were quite nervous; somehow you managed to give us the support we needed to tackle the task with confidence. We were particularly impressed with the way you kept in constant contact during the sale period, and kept us fully informed of everything that was happening in relation to the sale.
 
Your assessment of the market trends at such a difficult time was amazingly accurate, and we felt secure in trusting your judgement. All staff members provided efficient service, and were notable for promptness and courtesy. We were satisfied that you achieved the best possible price in the current market, and followed up all leads thoroughly. It is most unlikely that we will sell another house - but we would be very happy to make use of your services again, and recommend you to our friends.
 
With sincere thanks

2 MALVERN AVE, GLEN IRIS
 
 
A few months ago I asked J.A. Cain Real Estate to sell the house at 2 Malvern Ave, Glen Iris, that my wife and I had occupied for 48 years.
 
I could not be more satisfied with the result.I had approached other firms, but decided that my best choice was to have J.A. Cain do the job. Although it is a small, family firm, it has advantages not always offered by other operators. All the people at J.A. Cain know the area well and were involved in the auction and the lead-up to it. Bryan Cain, the leader of the team, participated in all aspects of the operation, big and small, and was always ready to consult me - he didn't just turn up to conduct the auction on the day. He and his team ensured that the property was advertised and marketed thoroughly, but not extravagantly. This was demonstrated by the strong and steady flow of potential buyers eager to inspect the property.
 
At the same time Bryan and his colleagues and staff made every effort to keep the lead-up as unobtrusive as possible. They know that selling a house can be a stressful business, and that I was under extra pressure of coping with my wife's recent death and with the purchase of a new home for myself in Mornington, where I could be closer to my children and their families. Nothing was done without my being given the opportunity to make suggestions and the final decision.
 
The Glen Iris house is a weatherboard Californian Bungalow. It did have renovation potential, and this point was made to potential buyers. But it was always likely that the property, which is covered by a single-dwelling covenant, would be sold for redevelopment - which is what happened.I was most impressed by the way Bryan conducted the auction. He and I had the same reserve price in mind from the outset - no argument there! But I was alarmed when the bidding stopped well short of the reserve. After quietly assuring me that I shouldn't worry, Bryan returned to his task, got the bidding going again and with cool, unhurried confidence nudged the price well beyond the reserve.
 
The result he achieved set a record top price for a property in Malvern Avenue, which has seen many real estate deals in recent times. I understand that it is still the record for a property sold for redevelopment.
 
Yours Sincerely
Neil Jillett

Dear Bryan,
 
With respect to the sale of my apartment by auction, I would like to express my thorough appreciation of your company's performance.
 
I am happy to confirm in writing that J.A. Cain Real Estate delivered a most competent and successful service and in addition showed itself sensitive, helpful and supportive.
 
The entire complex marketing and selling process progressed smoothly and without any untoward incident. Michael, in particular, gave knowledgeable advice and handled the pre-auction process conscientiously and with charm and reassurance to me. Bryan was, of course, equally successful and very skilled in the auction process.Together with your lovely feminine manner, the three of you make a great team.
 
I would be happy to recommend your firm to any other seller in this region of greater Melbourne.
 
Yours sincerely

To the J.A. Cain team,Thank you for achieving an amazing result for us in selling our family home. 
 
Given that we are living interstate, your assistance and expert knowledge on the current state of the market, and in preparing our house for sale, was invaluable.  The home was beautifully presented and a sale achieved in very quick time and a minimum of fuss. 
 
We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending JA Cain to our family and friends. 
 
Kind regards Dean & Fiona Lear

Dear Bryan, Paul and I would like to acknowledge your contribution to our recent campaign and ultimately the auction of our home.
 
Due to your efforts and enthusiasm in selling our home, we felt we were able to achieve the best possible result on auction day. We found you to be courteous, clear and concise with your communications throughout the campaign, taking the stress out of a stressful time.
 
The companies combined years of experience in the industry showed in their vast knowledge of the area, putting our minds at ease that we were in safe hands. So we take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to you and thank you again for your hard work and professionalism.
 
We would unreservedly recommend your services to anyone and would most certainly choose your company again. We wish you and all the staff at J A Cain Real Estate continued success and thank you once again for their efforts.
 
Yours Sincerely

To the team at J A CAIN Real Estate, To all who were involved in handling the sale of our property we extend our sincere appreciation of the professional approach to all matters from the initial interview with your managing director to the actual signing of the Contract of Sale.
 
During this period Bryan Cain gave us tremendous support and advice together with organising inspections with minimum interruption to our daily routine. We always felt confident and secure in our dealings with your company, this confidence was reinforced by attention to detail and ongoing feedback from prospective purchasers.
 
Our property sold well above our reserve, this we believe was a direct result of experienced marketing and negotiating skills of your company, plus a sound knowledge of real estate in the area.
 
We would have no hesitation in recommending J.A. Cain Real Estate to our friends and should the occasion arise, use their services again.
 
Yours Sincerely, Bill & Mary Walsh 
 
 
 
2/35 LITHGOW ST, GLEN IRIS
 
 
To the J.A. Cain team, The business relationship was excellent. I appreciated your agency's ability to read quickly that my personal choice for a private sale was supported by the team and a simple and effective marketing plan put in place promptly.
 
I was buoyed by your confidence in the potential sale and ability to give a realistic and quite compacted market estimate. The ongoing campaign was excellent, with regular feedback and professional advice on how to present the property, very useful for a client who has an inclination towards some untidiness! The end point in finalising the sale was a supreme effort and I was struck by Bryan in how he was prepared to put in extra hours to achieve the fine result.
 
Have already recommended agency to a potential vendor in Glen Iris and am now forever confident in working with an agency that though may not be as big as some of the other agencies in the area in terms of profile, but this family staffed agency has a terrific capacity for personal attention, responsiveness and commitment, and one that really gets the results that are confidently outlined at the start of campaign. Great result for me in this somewhat fragmented market at present, so thanks to the team - no doubt you will continue to achieve great results in the future.
 
Best wishes.

Dear Bryan,Thank you again for your assistance with selling our home, which we have loved living in and will definitely miss.
 
In our selection process we were impressed by your listening skills (i.e. what we wanted) and professionalism. The personal approach of your long standing family business made us feel that we weren't just another listing. After lots of hard work, we were pleased to achieve a sale and see you be appropriately rewarded for your effort.
 
We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone else in the area looking to sell a home.We wish you all the best for the future.

Dear JA Cain staff,I would like to express my thanks for the wonderful job you did selling my unit in Glen Iris.
 
Right from the outset, you listened to our needs, answered our questions in candid and honest manner, gave us some practical low-cost interior decorating ideas and were brilliant in following up. This set you apart from the other agents who just wanted to tell us how good they were.The fact that you also achieved a sale that exceeded our expectations within a week and half of the property being listed was exceptional in a slow market.
 
I have no hesitation in recommending JA Cain Real Estate to future prospective sellers.
 
Many Thanks

Dear Bryan & Chris,We have no hesitation in recommending J.A. Cain Real Estate to any prospective clients.
 
They sold our property at Auction in a slow market when many other properties in our area were being passed in without bids. The advertising and marketing campaign ensured a hugely successful sale and we found the sales team to be very courteous, professional and hard working.
 
They have kept us well informed at all times and we could not be happier with the result. You made it so easy and got us a great price. What more can we say?

Dear Bryan & JA Cain staff,Thank you so much for the help, care and understanding you gave us when buying our “Villa” and selling our house.
 
We needed a firm such as yours and felt you gave us all the help we needed. We felt very comfortable leaving our home in your hands and believe you acted in our best interests.
 
We will have no hesitation in recommending you to others.
 
Thank you

Dear Bryan and extended family members,I am ashamed it has taken a fortnight to write to you all expressing our family's deep appreciation of the help you were to us as we set about selling 11 Amelia St, Camberwell.

Dear Bryan,Thank you very much for all the work and the good result with the sale of my Hawthorn property.
 
I particularly appreciate the extra help and attention to detail that you both gave on inspection days. After acting as an agent in the sale of the properties of both my mother and myself I would have no hesitation in recommending JA Cain to anyone.

Dear Bryan,Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job in selling my property. A neighbour of mine recommended you to me and I'm so glad I took his advice.I had interviewed 3 other estate agents and was very disappointed with them. I felt they were not taking the slightest notice of what I was saying and were more interested in getting a listing.
 
Your approach was in direct contrast to this - you were not in the least bit “pushy” and I felt very comfortable that you had my best interests at heart. It was such a relief.
 
To cap it all off you found a buyer within 2 days of the board going up and got a price that was well in excess of what the other agents had quoted. After the sale you kept in regular touch with me to help find another property and also assisted my son in finding a flat to rent. 
 
It was such a happy experience dealing with you and I'm looking forward to telling as many people as possible about J.A. Cain!
 
Best wishes, Jennifer Jenkins

Dear Bryan & Team,Just wanted to thank you very much for al your assistance in the recent sale of our home.
 
Not only did you manage to achieve fantastic sale price but your professionalism, attention to detail and customer service was outstanding. In our opinion, the personal service your company offers far surpasses that of your larger competitors in the area.
 
Your after sale service in regards to the purchase of our new home has also been much appreciated.We have no hesitation in recommending you to our family and friends when they embark on the very serious and emotional journey of selling their homes.
 
We look forward to dealing with you again in the future.

3 CHALEYER ST, GLEN IRIS
 
 
Dear JA Cain Team,I would like to thank you and Bryan Cain for acting on my behalf in relation to the sale of my mother's property.
 
After interviewing three local agents, it was clear to me that you had the best understanding of the real estate market in the area and provided much more detailed information on recent sales results for properties that were comparable with the property in Chaleyer Street.
 
The sale process was made more difficult by the need to delay the auction for personal reasons affecting my family, as well as the weakening market conditions. At all times I felt that you were keeping me well informed and were acting in my best interests. This was especially the case during the handling of negotiations with prospective purchasers.
 
I have no hesitation in recommending J.A. Cain Real Estate.
 
Yours Sincerely, Brenda Wardlaw

  • "Saturday was exciting and very rewarding, and a great deal of the credit must go to you and the efforts of your team.  I am extremely grateful for the care, support, encouragement and guidance you gave to me, throughout the whole of the process of selling, which could have been a nightmare considering my circumstances. It was a successful day and a happy one, celebrating our 45 years in this home, and I thank you most sincerely for your wonderful contribution."
 
  • "You will 'always' receive the highest recommendations from us - to use any other is a mistake!".
 
  • "And they said it was not possible to trust a Real Estate Agent - well, you've proved them wrong. Thanks for the advice, integrity and honesty you bring to the business - its been a pleasure doing business.
 
  • "What one of the larger real estate offices couldn't do for us in three months, you did in less than 2 weeks.
 
  • The efficiency, professionalism and close attention to the simple things made selling our unit with J.A.Cain a much less stressful process than our previous, recent experience. Achieving a sale price well in excess of our expectations was icing on the cake. I would definitely be happy to recommend J.A.Cain to anyone selling their property".
 
  • "I met Bryan and he suggested that an auction was not necessary for the property, but that I should undertake some basic refurbishment. I followed his advice in respect of what I needed to do and also in respect of matters that I did not need to worry about. His advice proved to be 'spot on'. The property went open for inspection early in February. There was good response to the firm's internet listing.  Newspaper advertising was minimal, with the whole advertising expense coming in under budget. Within 3 weeks of being on the market, the property sold at a price higher than we expected. It sold 'as is'; we did not lift a finger.
 
  • "I have worked in customer service for 10 years so I am fussy when it comes to professionalism - I cannot fault J.A.Cain Real Estate.  They realise that both the rentals department and the sales department go hand in hand, they really work as a team.  They are trustworthy and committed to both the customer and the company".
