Our Service Guarantee

At Eckermann Conveyancers we are committed to providing you with exceptional service and as part of the service you receive from us we guarantee that:

  • We will be personal, transparent and respectful, treating you and your transaction as an individual and not as a number;
  • We will be accessible, timely and proactive in our communication with you, and other third parties assisting with your transaction; and
  • We will listen to your needs and provide guidance and support to assist in reaching a desired outcome.

In the unlikely situation where we haven’t upheld our commitments to you as outlined above, we offer you the opportunity to receive a reduction up to the full amount of the professional fee on the conveyancing fees we quoted you.

You just need to contact Brad Eckermann on 0429 859 539 or email brad@eckermanngroup.com to advise where we’ve fallen short of our commitment during the transaction. Brad will discuss with you the amount that you believe reasonable to cover for us not meeting your expectations. We greatly value your feedback whether positive or negative and want to use your feedback to make sure we improve for the next time we assist you
