Sandra is a great agent who worked tirelessly to get a great result for me and my family after the passing of my grandmother. We had a few offers fall over but Sandra quickly backed them up with new offers that lead us to a great result. I could not thank Sandra enough for her very hard work, I would recommend Sandra to anyone looking to sell there property in the Bundaberg area.
