To whom it may concern,
We have worked together for nearly 10 years with Gerard and Antoinette from Gerard Partners, a family owned real estate at Leichhardt.
We first met when we were looking for an inner city apartment to be our city residence.
Gerard listened to our needs and he found us a particularly nice apartment overlooking the city which was beyond our expectations. Later we bough an investment roperty in Leichhardt as well.
As we were not ready to use the first apartment, we appointed Gerard and Partners to lease both of the properties.
The tenants' lease times ranged from 6 months to a year so we had a few tenant pass through our doors. Gerard Partners were able to select excellent tenants and over the years we never had any problems with any of the tenants.
If there were any issues with the apartments, Gerard had a team of reliable trade's people that could deal with the problems.
When we decided to sell the properties, our first choice was Gerard Partners because we knew we could rely on them to get us a realistic price for our properties as we knew they were committed to selling our properties.
We have had other properties with other real estate agents over the years and Gerard Partners have been a standout real estate agent. They have 'delivered the goods'.
We would definitely use Gerard and Partners again and we would recomend them to anyone buying, selling or leasing their properties.
I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you and your team for managing the above mentioned property for my wife and I over the last 9 years and also for the subsequent sale. We are extremley satisfied with the fact that in the 3 short weeks that the property was listed for auction, you achieved a sale prior to the auction at the price that you estimated we should be able to realize. A price that was in line with our expectations.
We Would also like you to pass on our thanks to your property manager Chris Craft who performed what is usually a thankless role but he always acted professionally and kept us informed as to the condition of the property and arranged any repairs promptly.
We are investing in property and we hope that we will be able to work together in the future.
We would be more than happy to recommend Gerard Partners to any property owners that require property management as well as any prospective vendors.
Just a quick note to thank you and your staff, particularly Amy, Antoinette and Elodie for all the work that you accomplished in selling 81 Marion Street at auction last Saturday. From our first meeting last December your enthusiasm and knowledge of the market in the area impressed both John and I, and after considering the other offers had no hesitation in selecting Gerard and Partners to take the property to market.
Your professionalism in preparing not only the property, but us as sellers for the market was invaluable and the volume of interest you achieved was beyond our expectations. We were overwhelmed on the day of the auction by the number of registered bidders as well as the result that was achieved by your auctioneer Robert.
Overall we have had a very well managed and presented sales campaign and thank you for your feedback, assistance and reassurance that with Gerard and Partners anything was possible, and it turned out to be the case. If we can help you at anytime with a recommendation have no hesitation to call.
I would like to write to you on behalf of Rosemarie and myself to sincerely thank you for making the sale of our investment property at 40 Starling Street, Lilyfield such a success. The sale was scheduled for Auction in November 2012 and was settled in December 2012.
Right throughout the sales process, we were delighted with how you kept us informed and for your candid advice about price expectations and other relevant issues. I’m not sure if you know, but we only approached your agency to list, market and sell our property simply because of our satisfaction of your service over many years as our Property Managing Agent.
The attentive service that we were used to as landlords was also obvious to us as sellers of the property. We have no hesitation in continuing to recommend you to anyone requiring Real Estate services anywhere in the Sydney Inner West.
