Outside work I enjoy the fantastic life style that Western Australia offers, particularly beach walking although a “Margaret River Red” does not go astray.

Albert and Kath
Over the last six months we have been looking to downsize and sell our home that we have lived in for the past twenty years.
After getting valuations of our home from several agents, we found Jackie Tomic who stood out from the others with her caring, genuine friendly manner.
We didn’t want to put our home on the market until we had found a home to put an offer on. Jackie was patient and helpful during this time before she even began to sell our house.
Once an offer was in place, Jackie set to work immediately to sell our home in an efficient and professional manner.
Jackie was patient and positive, even though we often weren’t and even used her shoulder to cry on from time to time.
She opened our home frequently, never trying to force us to lower our price. She would just discuss the market and ask what we would like to do.
She wielded her exceptional negotiating skill s to get us the maximum price possible for our property while still caring about being fair to our buyers and so gaining their respect and trust as well.
Jackie went way beyond her role as real estate agent, giving generously of her own time. Throughout the process it was evident that she was set to protect our best interest not just with selling our home but with the purchase of the new at no real benefit to her.
She was our professional advisor when we were putting an offers on our new home, assisted us with the final inspection of the house we were buying, proactively chased up other real estate agents, banks and settlement agent s, and even offered decorating advice when asked.
We would recommend her to anyone who is looking for an agent who is 100% trustworthy and passionate and competent.
We are so grateful to her.
Dena and Brad
Sale of the property in Yokine
It was the first time I had ever sold a house. So glad I chose Jackie! She is extremely professional, knowledgeable and helpful. Offered lots of suggestions to make my property more presentable before it went on the market. During the sale process she always responded promptly to my questions and concerns, no matter how trivial they were. Jackie was so supportive I always felt like I had a friend and protector in my corner.
Will certainly be calling Jackie again next time I sell!
Thank you very much Jackie
I want to thank you most sincerely for the wonderful support you provided me during the process of putting my house in Cornwall Street Dianella on the market. I’m sure it is a stressful time for most people going through this process but it is even more so for someone of my age (80).
Your were a great support to me every step of the way and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to any of my friends as I found you to be a very honest, trustworthy and extremely efficient person.
I first met you in 2009 and when considering an agent last November I knew that you had a thorough knowledge of the market in this area so felt secure in going with you and it proved to be the right decision to make in a slow market as my house was sold in a short time.
You also went over and above the normal duties of an estate agent and helped me out in so many ways which made life a little easier during this time.
I wish you every success for the future.
I just want to thank you for all that you did for me concerning the sale of my property in Dianella.
You obviously know Dianella very well and were able to give good advice. You went out of your way
to be helpful and you were always friendly warm and kind. This made parting with my home less
traumatic for me. You were also able to sell my home very quickly on a very slow market.
Most of all it is wonderful to have dealings with an honest, sincere person like you.
I will not hesitate to recommend you to others who may be wanting to sell their home.
Adam and I were so pleased with the way you handled the sale of our property we have written a testimonial you may use for future clients.
We recently contracted a wonderful lady, Jackie Tomic to sell our house in Noranda. We were very impressed with the excellent service she gave us.
We were kept informed about what was happening with regards to buyer interest from day
one. Jackie communicated with us using mobile messages, phone calls and the Century 21 website which was updated on a daily basis. This was followed up with letters sent home showing monthly updates.
Jackie works very hard and has a wonderful positive work ethic. Her feedback and advice helped to sell our house a lot sooner than we expected.
Jackie provided us with encouragement and support in what can be a very stressful time. If anyone asks us for a Real Estate Agent to sell their house, we highly recommend Jackie as our number one choice.
We are writing to thank Jackie for the very successful sale of our home at Crawford Rd, Dianella. We have known Jackie for a few years now & when we decided to sell our home, she was my wife, Linley’s first choice. We did interview a couple of other agents as I felt our home would appeal Mt Lawley buyers & thought an agent from there would be an advantage. Linley however convinced me that Jackie would do a good job.
I have to say Jackie is an outstanding real-estate agent as she is also as a person. Firstly she has a strong character which combined with her impeccable integrity makes the lovely lady she is. I, like many clients I guess made life difficult for her at times. Always she would deal with our issues & never faulted even when our first offer fell through, she just kept on trying even though we had almost given up. Through her persistence we sold our home at the price we wanted.
We always felt Jackie was giving us 100% & was always focused on achieving our goal. Linley & I are very grateful to her for the great job she has done.
May we say that she is highly regarded by us both & we have no hesitation recommending her to future clients.
Kind regards, Glenn & Linley
Jackie was amazing. She knows intimately the area and her service and follow up is second to none. She kept me informed every step of the way and followed up every enquiry leading to a full price cash sale in only 5 days. Can absolutely recommend Jackie if you are looking for an outstanding result. Thankyou Jackie
We would like to thank you for the wonderful job you did in the recent sale of both of our properties.
We were very impressed with your professionalism and dedication in the sale of our properties and your promptness, professionalism and willingness to discuss matters at any time. Your wonderful dedication was evident as well as your great negotiation skills in the prompt sale of our properties and achieving the price we expected in this particularly difficult market.
It has been such a pleasure dealing with you and we will certainly be engaging your services in future business.
Thanks Jackie for a brilliant job well done.

Dear Mr. Comben
I write to commend a member of your team – Ms. Jackie Tomic. I had the good fortune of having Jackie recommended to me by a close friend. I have been so impressed with Jackie’ s attention to detail, her honesty and integrity and for her ability y to make me feel as though I was her only client. She goes above and beyond, and I was so happy with her service that I really felt the need to let you know.
Napier Road MORLEY WA 6062
I would like to thank Jackie Tomic for her help of selling my home in Dianella to moving into a new one that I purchased through a different agency. I would like to say I had no help from the other agent just quietly.
As I was on my own and never sold or bought a home, Jackie went out of her way to be there for me all the time, not only professionally but also personally, nothing was too much trouble to help and advice, while I moved into my new home.
I really appreciated all she did for me and am only too pleased to recommend her personally to anyone who wishes.
All My Thanks,
I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for the way you handled the sale of my Diane/la home.
With your expert knowledge of the local market you were able to guide me to the price range I could expect to achieve, and achieve it we did.
I appreciated you keeping me informed throughout and the way you followed up after your Home Opens, and especially keeping in touch with all that showed an interest. Your encouragement and concern meant a lot to me at this time.
I am sure you got me the best possible price for my home and will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone seeking a sales consultant in this area.
Every best wish for the future. Kind regards
On behalf of our family we would like to thank you for your exceptional work and guidance you offered us throughout the process.
Your constant attention to detail in helping us with the presentation of our house ensured a constant flow of prospective buyers in our initial home opens. As a result, an exceptional offer was made on the property within 2 weeks of it being on the market, this considering the market was very competitive at the time.
Thank you very much for your personal and emotional support during what is usually a testing time, your continuous communication we certainly appreciated.
We will have no hesitation in recommending you as our preferred Real Estate Consultant to all our family and friends.
Jackie we wish you all the best.
Regards Michael & Diana
Max what we can say
Clive and I sold 11 properties in our lifetime, including previous sale with Century 21 with Rogan Hartley – yet Jackie just leaves us gob smacked.
Her absolute commitment to the client is so genuine and amazing. She makes herself available
at all hours and we were left feeling that selling our home, for the best price, was her one goal.
She has sold Shaw Rd and now Glandore Rise for us and the way she throws herself into getting
the best outcome is just amazing. And she seems to have fun doing it.
With Shaw Rd we got into some problems with a developer, you may recall, and Jackie was there offering advice and support and the shoulder to cry on, all the way. Our most recent sale she has organized for us to be able to rent back until our new home is completed. All of this taking time
and energy from an already busy schedule and no financial gain to herself.
She is a credit to your agency and a joy to deal with. Reading her details on the web page shows
where all her skills come from and come together in one great package.
Joyce and Clive
My journey in real estate began in May 2001. During my more than 20 years working in the industry, I have received numerous awards for excellence in real estate and have loved every year that I have been selling property.
I believe one of my greatest assets in my job is my focus on the needs of my clients. When people invite me into their homes to discuss the sale of their property, I concentrate on providing them with good, clean business advice and service.
In deciding on which real estate Agent you are going to select, the question you truly should ask is “how effective will the Agent be in getting the best price the market has to offer?”. Many Agents may tell you they can get the best price, but how many can provide this through their track record and previous dealings.
I am able to show you a growing list of testimonials from my previous Sellers who can provide my history of achieving excellent sale prices and caring service for my clients and I am truly excited about the prospect of helping you with the sale of your home or property.
Below are just 5 from over 44 Award Achievements for Alla:
1. REIWA Awards 16-20 Million Dollar Club
2. Top Salesperson (Ray White Whiteman & Associates)
3. 3rd Top Salesperson Number of Sales (Ray White Group)
4. 3rd Top Salesperson Settled Commission (Ray White Group)
5. REIWA Awards 10-15 Million Dollar Club
TESTIMONIALS FOR ALLA
Alla’s ability to perfectly calculate the correct selling price of her listed properties has enabled her to not only obtain the best price for her clients, but also to ensure that she attains the sale of her listed properties in the quickest time possible. I rate Alla the best of the many Real Estate agents that I have worked with and I highly recommend her to prospective sellers of property.
In the competitive world of Real Estate it is hard to find honestly and integrity. But with Alla we never had cause to doubt her. Everything she promised us, she delivered.
Our house has been on the market for an extended period of time and we had several land agents attempt to sell it, unsuccessfully. It was the services provided by Alla that finally achieved the sale. From our first meeting, we were immediately impressed with her professional approach. It was her skill, experience, honesty and passion as a land agent which achieved the outcome others had been unable to deliver.
Colin and Georgia
Ms Torgashev is a consummate professional who has always conducted herself with the highest integrity. She has strong work ethic that extends to knowing her market and client suitability. She has consistently produced excellent results for us and we are delighted with having her represent us.
I first met Alla at an open house and I was immediately taken by her attitude and sincerity. I knew from that first meeting that I wanted her to sell my houses. She approaches everything with a professional manner and I wish her all the best in her future career.
Our Dianella property was sold at an excellent price before having an official home opening, due to Alla’s pre advertising. Alla was always thorough and well organised and so gave us the best possible advice and service available. She made herself accessible at all times for any questions or concerns that arose and always provided follow-up information. Alla comes with our highest regard and recommendation.
Des and Jan
The selling of our homes was a new venture for us. Alla steered us through it; she answered our questions, assured us of things we needed to do and stood by us when we were less than sure. And she did all this in a way which kept us free – our sense was of a consecrate and careful property consultant.
Jan and David
I first met Alla when my partner and I were looking at some villas in Balga which were open for inspection. Alla was the salesperson. I didn’t buy any of those units as they were not suitable for my needs but I was impressed by Alla’s manner and bearing as she showed them to us.
Some weeks later I was ready to put my house in Stirling on the market. I called Alla and two other agents. The other agents were experienced but neither impressed me to the extent that Alla did. I gave the listing to her. It was definitely the right decision.
She really thinks about the client, the house, the state of the market and the best way to present. Her advice on preparation for sale was simple and clear and made a lot of sense. She moves quickly and remains focussed on the job until it is done.
She is very straight forward and professional in her work.
Two weeks after listing Alla had brought forth several prospective buyers and skilfully managed the process of obtaining the best price from the most qualified buyer. It was the best result we could have obtained at the time.
I needed to sell another house in Koondoola two years later and once again I gave the listing to Alla. The market was slowing down at the time but Alla didn’t neglect any opportunity. One buyer was only able to inspect the property after 6:30pm on a winter’s night. Most agents would have tried to put them off until the weekend but Alla greed to miss a personal engagement and show it at the time.
They bought the property and did so a favourable price.
Alla understands the market and gives realistic advice about the value of properties, the state of the market and in particular, the best presentation of your property. If you choose her to sell your property or simply seek her advice on real estate matters you will find her completely professional, very well informed and totally focussed on your situation.
Because of work and other personal circumstances I have had to sell and buy again several times and I have dealt with several other real estate agents in the past. They varied from good to rather poor in their performance.
Alla stands out from them all. She is undoubtedly the best I have detail with.
I am happy to recommend her.
I would highly recommend Alla!
In a tough market she sold our property for over asking in 1 week!
Couldn’t have been happier.
Bryan from Bayswater
I found Alla through Open Agents Australia as I didn’t have any idea on how to find a Real Estate Agent. Being such a difficult market at the moment I knew I needed someone who knew the area well and had had recent successful sales in the same area. Alla didn’t disappoint. Alla was just what I needed and from the moment I met her I knew she was the RE agent for me. As a first time home-seller she helped me throughout the entire process. She was always available to answer my endless questions.
Not only did she sell my house within 3 weeks (unheard of in my area, with my style of property) she got me over the asking price in a VERY difficult market. I could not recommend Alla more. THANK YOU ALLA!
Thanks for your time and happy Friday,
To Whom It May Concern,
Alla Trogashev has now sold three properties for my wife Leanne and myself. All properties have been sold in tough market’s and yet through Alla’s hard work, determination and understanding of the property market she has been able to not only sell our properties but also get the best offer possible. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alla as a truly professional Real Estate Agent.
Jamie and Leanne
Alla was very knowledgeable, polite and sincere person who made it her job to meet our needs. She discussed the idea of Set Date Sale and what it meant and entailed and was able to follow through and deliver a very pleasant sale price for our property within 3 days of the house going on the market!
Alla treated us as individuals with her caring manner, explained things in detail, responded to phone calls/text messages promptly and nothing was too much trouble.
Alla is a hardworking individual who is hard to fault as an agent and as a person – we were very lucky to have had Alla.
I would recommend Alla to any friend or associate in need of representation, she is a true professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and diligent, she listens carefully and gives advice without pushing in any way. She knows the area well and understands what is reasonable and achievable in the market, she advises accordingly. I was very pleasantly surprised at the short length of time our property was on the market, before a reasonable offer materialised in the current market (prices falling), the price we achieved was the price we discussed and agreed with Alla, I was relieved and delighted with the result. Our sincerest thanks to Alla, to repeat, I recommend her to anyone in need of an honest, diligent, gentle agent, a fine lady, a pleasure to deal with at all times. Sincerely, Peter.
The Settlement for Brichely Crescent took place on the 12th of this month, we take this opportunity in thanking you for the success of this sale.
You acted in a very professional manner, and were always thinking about our welfare and totally committed to the sale taking place.
We will recommend you to everyone – BIG YES.
We will return to you if we are selling again – BIG YES.
I don’t have your bosses email so I could not copy him/her in this email but do get them to read this.
