We have only known Trent for a couple of weeks and have found his market knowledge to be high and he has abundant knowledge of the Surf Coast and the specific area we were wanting to buy in.  He is a clear communicator with a friendly manner.  He has made the process of buying our new home very easy, and post-sale he continues to be reliable, professional and helpful.  If you are looking to buy on the Surf Coast we would highly recommend Trent.
