" Great operator whether you are buying, selling or leasing "
We have purchased, leased twice and sold our property through Scott Robertson. At all times we found Scott to be very easy to get along with and believe Scott behaved ethically at all times. We also feel that he has the most knowledge of the Balmain area. During each engagement that we entrusted our property to Scott we could relax in the knowledge that he would get the outcome we were after. We unreservedly recommend Scott to others and will definitely engage him again if we make another move in the Balmain area.
" Genuinely helpful "
"Genuinely helpful" Scott and his team were very genuine and straight forward, which was a much different service we had received prior from other agents in the area. Scott and his team went on to manage this property as a rental property with such ease and no hassles. Scott is a true gentleman and we highly recommend his services.
" Deserves his reputation in Balmain "
"Deserves his reputation in Balmain" When I chose Scott to sell our property it was due to his reputation in the area and superior knowledge of the Balmain / Rozelle area. We had watched him achieve excellent sales results throughout the area and especially in Union Balmain.The whole process was relaxed and easy with Scott supporting us throughout the sale. Our property didn't need styling and the photographer Scott engaged captured the great features of our apartment in the photos he took. The result we achieved was within the range suggested by Scott and within 2 weeks of listing.As our buyers had asked if we were interested in selling some of our furniture, Scott handled the negotiations resulting in us being able to leave most of our furniture for the buyers. This was a huge bonus for us and the buyers. We avoided removal and storage costs and the buyers were able to move in to an almost fully furnished apartment at settlement.I would not hesitate in recommending Scott Robertson to sell your property.
" Pick the right agent and you will be rewarded. "
Scott, family and staff have looked after us for some 11 years with the management of our 4 bedroom home at Balmain Cove and we have always had excellent tenants, the reporting has always been excellent and rents deposited when expected regardless of time of year. We have been 100% happy with the management. When we decided to sell we did not go any where but to Scott and Balmain Realty. W asked a little over their suggested price for a few weeks and once we saw the excellent reports coming in with comments we realised we had to come down just a little. We sold and exchanged unconditionally within a week and we are very very happy with the outcome as it met our objectives. We have always trusted Scott, Wayne, Jenny and staff without any hesitation and can only suggest if you want the best agents in the area to act for you then it is them.

"Unit Purchase" Real estate agents are in a difficult position, acting for both buyers and sellers, and most real estate reviews are written by sellers.

"Review of Scott Robertson of Balmain Realty" This is the 3rd time I have retained Scott Robertson to sell or buy property. And will certainly do so again when occasion arises.

"Apartment Purchase at Balmain Shores" Scott was very helpful while we were looking for an apartment over the past 18 months or so and after or purchase he assisted us with additional viewings and also obtaining information from the owners for our information prior to the settlement.
" Sale of Apartment "
"Sale of Apartment" Scott was able to secure an excellent sale on our renovated apartment which we believe set a record in the complex. He provided a market assessment and an early bid even before formal marketing. He was always responsive to our contacts and persevered to find the ideal matching buyer. After exchange Scott was very proactive to arrange a mutual reassignment of the settlement date which suited both parties. We found Scott easy and reassuring to deal with and he faithfully transmitted all feedback from prospective buyers. No hesitation to use Scotts services again should the occasion arise. Roger & Tania
" Best Agent we have Ever Worked With "
"Best Agent we have Ever Worked With" We bought our apartment from Scott a few years ago, and when it was time to lease it out there was no question which agent we would choose, so when it was then time to sell, again we were confident. He is extremely trustworthy and honest. We asked for an honest appraisal so we could make an executive decision, and that is exactly what we got.He kept us informed and ended up getting us more than he said we would! We couldn't be happier. Being overseas can make these things stressful, but he made it so simple and smooth sailing. We can't recommend him enough. Tanya & Ian
" Selling of property Balmain cove Rozelle "
"Sale of property in Balmain Cove" We placed the property for sale with another Real Estate agency & paid them $11,000 for a waste of our time & money. They insisted on Auctioning but no one turned up. Their photography was below standard. A v big mistake. After 6 weeks of stress we decided to leave them & go to Balmain Realty and see Scott. His professionalism, trust and motivation was extremely above your standard of most Real Estate Agencies. His friendliness and ability to arrange EVERYTHING for my husband and I was fantastic.The property was sold in less than 2 weeks. We highly recommend Scott as being the best, most reliable Real Estate in the Rozelle , Balmain area and genuinely a really lovely guy. Regards Sue & Paul
" "excellent outcome" "
"Excellent Outcome" Scott handled the tricky situation in selling my property brilliantly due to the tenant residing there. Somehow he negotiated the price above my expectation just after the second open house and we didn't end up going to auction. Excellent job Scott.

" Buying from Interstate "
"Buying from Interstate" We were buying from Melbourne which in today's Sydney market was very frustrating and we were so excited to finally secure a property back in a suburb we love. The sale almost fell over however due to Scott's hard work and assistance we were able to secure our new home.

Hi David, We don't normally write testimonials but in this instance it is thoroughly deserved. You took on our property that had been on the market for three months unsuccessfully with another agency, and with a minimum of fuss, using the Balmain Realty platform, you delivered a sale in two weeks that exceeded our expectations. You maintained the property and sale very effectively and with minimum intervention on our part, which pleased us. Unlike most realtors we met, who insist on a big up front cost expenditure, we had a minimum of outlay for a maximum of outcome with a quick timeline for completion. We were kept very well informed throughout the process and you always worked towards our best interest. Thank you for your advice and professional conduct. We would highly recommend you for any one looking to sell their home. Kind Regards Tina and Tim
I have no hesitation in recommending Scott Robertson to sell and/or buy your property. I can only describe that from the time when Scott appraised my home until the sale, the process was handled with professionalism and with the highest integrity. I am sure Scott's knowledge of the local market was a major reason for securing a sale in 3 weeks. I can only describe the service provided by Scott and the team at Balmain Realty exceeded my expectations. Regards, Rod Cook
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Scott Robertson & Balmain Realty to handle the sale of your home. We found Scott to be extremely professional and with the highest integrity which was of utmost importance to us when we selected him as our agent. Scott acted promptly from the time he appraised our home and kept us updated throughout the sale & inspection periods. The price achieved at Auction was not only as indicated but excellent considering the market conditions. Linda & Bruce Morrison
" Very professional job "
Scott and his colleagues have managed my Rozelle property for nearly a decade and in Feb 2015 I decided it was time to sell. Scott gave me a competitive quote, and then arranged the beautifying and marketing extremely quickly & efficiently. The flat went on the market and within 3 weeks Scott (and his Dad) were able to negotiate an excellent price - above my expectations. Thanks for the great service Scott ! Regards Don
My husband and I have had the pleasure of knowing Scott Robertson since 2000 when we first moved in to the Balmain Cove complex as renters. Between then and now we have we lived in various Inner West suburbs but always yearned to return to Balmain Cove as property owners. In 2010 we briefed Scott on the property that we wanted. Scott kept us posted at all times and never wasted our time telling us about something that didn’t meet our criteria. In 2011 he called us and told us about a property that was about to come on to the market. He gave us early access and as soon as we walked in we made an offer at full asking price. We lived in our beautiful waterfront apartment until May 2015 when we decided to relocate back to our native England for work and family reasons. We engaged Scott to help us sell our property. As usual he listened intently and gave us solid advice. The first person to see our property made an offer at full asking price offer! The whole process was done and dusted in under 3 weeks. Scott is a rare individual, not only does he know his market inside and out he possess the ability to really listen to his clients. He is attentive, calm and patient. You never feel like you are being sold to – Scott consults with you. I have no reservations in recommending Scott to anyone considering selling or buying a property in or around Balmain. You will not find another agent that has his knowledge experience. It just an added bonus that he is also a genuinely lovely guy! Karen & David Colfer
As a previous tenant with Balmain Realty and now as an owner with them managing my property at Balmain Shores I have experienced the highest quality of service from Balmain Realty property management over the past 10 years. The service is friendly, fastidious and efficient, and they have always found high quality tenants for my properties. I love that it is still a family run business with long term continuity. Regards, Rosalind
Scott is a first class Real Estate Agent. I initially came to him so that Balmain Realty would manage a rental property I had bought in Rozelle ‘off the plan’ 2 years earlier. The construction of the property was nearing completion. He immediately suggested that I had 2 options – renting or selling. I hadn’t thought of selling but when he suggested that the market had risen considerably in the Balmain/Rozelle area I decided I would sell and realise the capital gain. I retained Scott and his Real Estate Agency for the sale. I found him an absolute delight to work with as he has a highly competent approach. The property sold in a short time and above what he had quoted me he could get for the property. The whole sale process was painless and as I was moving interstate I felt I could leave everything regarding the sale in his hands. Scott is a true professional and has a ‘can do’ approach. He is lovely to interact with and everything was completed efficiently and effectively. In essence, he exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in his area and I wish him all the very best for the future. Regards, Shelley Jones
Hi Scott, Thanks for all of your efforts. Your service was attentive and professional at all times, the process was smooth and hassle free, and ultimately we are pleased you were able to exceed our initial sales prediction. It was a refreshing change to past experiences with agents. I’d have no hesitation in recommending you to others, and will definitely keep you in mind for our next sale. Thanks Scott. Brent
Hi Scott, Thank you very much for handling the sale of our apartment. We have recently sold a number of residential investment properties, and have dealt with many agents. Your service, professionalism was a step beyond, and your experience and attention to detail was impressive. I have no hesitation recommending you as a selling agent, you handled every aspect of the sale and kept us informed and updated. Thank you, it was hassle free sale and the price exceeded our expectations. Kind regards, Peita Piper
Hi Scott, Thanks for everything, we really appreciate how easy you made the whole process. We will keep in contact. Thanks again, Regards Paul Duyker
I just wanted to to write and thank Matthew for all his efforts to rent out my flat at Rozelle. I was very impressed with everything Matthew did. He was fast, efficient, sent out personal emails for the property, was able to get it online very quickly and held opens at appropriate times (eg 5:30pm-5:45pm after work). I found him to be very professional with his communication and manner, and really appreciated the effort he went to for me. I know where to come next time I need a tenant, and have already recommended you guys to friends. Thank you again, Kind regards Sarah Koen
" A Big Thank You... "
Hi Matthew, We just want to say a big thank you for all you have done for us regarding moving into Balmain Shores. Moving overseas can be stressful but you have taken the stress right out of it. As owners ourselves, we have dealings with many real estate agents and when it comes to rental properties many of them do not really care. You however, are so professional, friendly and obliging. You follow up quickly and with detail and precision. You are a real credit to your profession and Balmain Realty. Ross Dawson
Hi Scott, After a fast and efficient auction process we had a wonderful weekend. Thank-you for making this such a straight forward experience for us. There has been a lot of hard work by your team in the background to have such success on auction day. Kind regards, Kate & Karl
" Thanks so much "
Hi Scott, Thanks so much for your help with getting our place leased. Joe and I just wanted to let you know that Matt has been unbelievable! He is hands down the best leasing agent and property manager we've ever dealt with! You've got a real gem there. Hope he stays forever:) Kind regards Angie
" A good guy! "
Highly recommend Scott to sell or buy your home as your agent. He listened to our needs and steered us towards a successful and very prompt sale of our home! Very knowledgeable about the market, both Rozelle and Sydney wide. Very happy with the process and outcome. Amy & Julio
" House Auction "
My father recently sold the family house as he had moved into an aged care facility. It was a difficult decision but with Scotts guidance we made what we consider the correct choice and auctioned the home. I was dealing with Scott and his team at Balmain Realty on behalf of my father and could not have been happier with their professionalism and dedication. The entire process was very easy with Scott keeping us continuously informed of what was happening. The outcome of the auction was very pleasing, even above our expectations. On behalf of my father and the entire family I would like to thank Scott and his colleagues at Balmain Realty for all their support and consideration during this time of change, as it is never easy selling the family home. We would without hesitation recommend Scott and his team at Balmain Realty to deal with any property issues, as we trusted their advise and the results has proven that our choice of realtor was correct. Many Thanks Again. The Boman Family.
" Professional & Efficient! "
It was a pleasure to have Scott Robertson act as our agent in selling our property in Union Balmain. Scott is very knowledgeable in the Balmain/Rozelle area. We had purchased an off the plan property in Union Balmain and decided to sell before settlement. Scott was confident and optimistic on the potential selling price which was very much beyond our expectations. It was a delight that Scott was able to deliver on his valuation in a very short space of time especially considering it was during the Christmas/New Year period. Scott is professional in his conduct and achieved a very satisfactory result that is highly commendable with marketing that was highly relevant and effective. Regards, Christian Kurniadi
" I Couldn't be Happier "
I couldn't be happier with my experience of the property letting process at Balmain Realty. Our long-term tenants recently gave three weeks notice to vacate our investment property. Balmain Realty marketed the property well and showed a number of people through the apartment in one open house. This lead to a successful application from a professional couple, who moved in the day after our tenants were due to vacate. Given this is our only investment property we are quite cautious as to who we have as tenants and who manages the property on our behalf. Balmain Realty have helped us secure great tenants over the past few years and are very responsive to our many questions. Cheers, Andrew
We wanted to take the opportunity to again thank Scott Robertson at Balmain Realty for the recent sale of our apartment in Rozelle. We purchased our property from Scott a few years ago and then when we decided to sell we did not hesitate in requesting Scott’s services. Scott is a very personable, professional and highly skilled and knowledgeable realtor. Scott worked really hard from start to finish, securing us a result that we were so happy with (in under 2 weeks of the property being on the market). Scott handled all aspects of the sale, from dealing with the solicitors, to negotiating with interested parties, and ensuring the apartment was looking it’s best for inspections, making it all stress free. We would recommend Scott and Balmain Realty in a heartbeat to anyone looking at selling or purchasing a property and plan on enlisting their services in the future. Thanks Scott! Beth & David
" Thank you from one of our Tenant's "
Hi Scott, My name is Sharon Spillane and I have just secured a rental property in Balmain through your agency. I just wanted to send you an email to say thank you for letting me know about what rentals you had coming up at 'Balmain Shores' I appreciated your advice. Also I would like to let you know that your Property Management team represent Balmain Realty very well. I would like to make a special mention that Matthew Wilson’s professional approach and great service to me and also his consideration to the owners has been very well received and it’s just nice to have someone who cares the way he does on all issues. It’s been a pleasure to deal with him. Thank you Scott and I look forward to a long lasting business relationship. Kind Regards Sharon Spillane
We would like to thank Scott Robertson and his team at Balmain Realty for their tremendous service in selling our property. We were impressed with Scott’s immediate response to our initial online query (other agents took a few weeks to make contact). We were also very appreciative of Scott’s honesty with what we needed to do to prepare our unit in the best possible manner and how he managed the plethora of tradespeople (from property styling, carpet to paint) to come in an efficient manner to get the it ready for sale. Scott was always available and it would be common for him to make contact after business hours when most of his competitors would be either at home or at the pub. The highlight of our experience with Balmain Realty was that we listed our property late on Thursday night ... and had the contract for sale signed less than six days later … wow! For those worried about them, we found Scott’s charges are fair and reasonable … not that it was a worry to us as he exceeded our expectations with the price he was able to get for us, so he essentially paid for himself. His recommendations with respect to conveyancers was also on the money – another professional outfit that we dealt with in finalising the transaction. Thank you Scott. We wish yourself & your team at Balmain Realty continued success. Adrian & Mai Raftery
Dear Scott, We write to thank you for achieving a sale for our Balmain apartment, and at the top end of the market. When we first discussed possible responses to marketing, we asked you to manage the sale with several key points. Firstly, please keep us informed at all times: we congratulate you on keeping us informed and providing guidance when appropriate. Secondly, we agreed to offer a bonus based on exceeding our target: We are pleased that you met this. Thirdly, our questions and requests for feedback have always been professional and timely. It has been our pleasure to participate in a well run campaign. We are more than happy to provide any referrals to prospective clients in future. Sincerely, John and Clare Meyers
Hi Scott, A big thankyou for your team's wonderful services over the past few years on managing my property in Wulumay Close. I have bought and sold a number of properties over the past few years and I can say that the service that you offered me with the property at Wulumay Close definitely is the stand out. As a person who invests whilst living overseas it is important that one has confidence in the property managers. Also the recent sale of the property has been successful within a short time frame which more than met my expectations. Kind Regards, Judy Carruthers
We would like to write to you to acknowledge the fabulous experience we have had in dealing with Balmain Realty in the purchase of our property.

Your warm, professional yet friendly manner and no-nonsense approach was particularly appreciated. We feel that you truly go beyond the general duties of a real estate agent. Overall it was a painless exercise from our perspective and we have no hesitation in recommending you to others who value professionalism, honesty and integrity as I believe that you will certainly live up to their expectations in the same way you exceeded our expectations. Thank you! Darin Evans and Elizabeth Howe
" Rozelle Property Purchase "
Dear Scott,We write to you to thank you for all that you have done to help us acquire our first property. After 8 months of actively looking, bidding and disappointments, we met you at a property in Balmain Shores just 6 weeks before our successful purchase. At our first meet, we expressed our desire to live in an apartment in the “Atelier” development in Rozelle as the architecture and location of the building appealed to us. You immediately had us put on the Balmain Realty database, where informative emails were received weekly advising us of all the open houses. Additionally, within weeks you contacted us personally (email and phone call) to advise us of an apartment that would be available in the “Atelier” development. We inspected the property on a Saturday, and by the Thursday we were signing contracts in your office. Everything was made so simple by your office, and was stress free. We made a single offer, and you kept us informed daily in relation to your communications with the Vendor until we exchanged on the property in less than a week.We have told all our friends and colleagues about our pleasant experience of purchasing through Balmain Realty. We would strongly recommend anyone looking to sell, rent or purchase a property in Rozelle, Balmain & Drummoyne to speak to Scott and his team.Thank you again for your assistance.Kind RegardsPayarm Eskandari & Junko Sunaga

Additionally, within weeks you contacted us personally (email and phone call) to advise us of an apartment that would be available in the “Atelier” development. We inspected the property on a Saturday, and by the Thursday we were signing contracts in your office. Everything was made so simple by your office, and was stress free. We made a single offer, and you kept us informed daily in relation to your communications with the Vendor until we exchanged on the property in less than a week.We have told all our friends and colleagues about our pleasant experience of purchasing through Balmain Realty. We would strongly recommend anyone looking to sell, rent or purchase a property in Rozelle, Balmain & Drummoyne to speak to Scott and his team.Thank you again for your assistance.Kind RegardsPayarm & Junko
Hi Scott, Thanks for your service, you do a good job and do what you say you’ll do which is rare in today’s world. We’ve had no “surprises” dealing with Balmain Realty and based on prior property transactions our purchase and sale at 'Balmain Shores' both have been hassle free. If the Sydney market reveals future/value buying opportunities we’d have no hesitation in coming back to you. Regards, Russell, Virginia & Jemma Hawksford
The "Grougar Row" family of 177 Darling Street, Balmain, would like to express our thanks to the Balmain Realty Team for their amazing marketing effort in the sale of our property. The professional advice and friendly help provided by Kurt, Wayne, Scott, and all the team helped us through a difficult time following the death of our matriarch and steered us on the right path to a successful outcome with the property. A fabulous job by all and many thanks once again. All the best, Christine & Janice
Hi Scott, We just wanted to thank both you and Kurt for handling the recent sale of our property which sold for a record price exclusively via your database in a short time which also meant we didnt have to go through a lengthy & costly marketing campaign. Your opinion of a fair price and reasonable timeframe for sale proved to be ‘spot on’ and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. We found both of you to be easy to deal with and you followed through on whatever you promised to do. We would recommend Balmain Realty to anyone wanting to buy or sell property on the Balmain Peninsula. Thanks, Peter and Kelly
Scott Robertson sold us our apartment 4 years ago and we had no hesitation to list the apartment with him when we decided to sell this year. Balmain Realty are the real-estate specialists in the area and not only have an extensive customer base, but are extremely professional & have excellent customer service. We only had to do one open house and we found an investor! I would happily recommend Balmain Realty, especially Scott - he understood our needs and went above and beyond. Thank you! Regards, Simone & Richard
Dear Steve, We would like to thank you for the outstanding way in which you handled the sale of our Balmain Shores property. Your manner was professional and courteous, and from our introduction we held confidence in you and your ability to successfully manage the sale. Your knowledge and understanding of the current market in our area was exceptional, and your understated style and rapport with prospective buyers led to the successful sale of our home, with a result that had us popping the champagne! It is with pleasure that we recommend your services, Many Thanks, Allan and Rebecca
From the beginning Balmain Realty impressed me with their professional and up to date advice. Because of their years of experience and extensive data base I was convinced to list my property for sale with them. Wayne achieved an amazing result that was truly beyond my expectations. Not only was this service knowledgeable and effective, it was also affordable. Thank you, I really do appreciate the record price achieved in record time. Kind Regards, Karen Grant.
We were extremely happy with the service that Scott and Kurt provided in selling our first home. The fact that we were based overseas was not a problem at all as they were very responsive to our requests and offered help for the little things that needed to be done (like repairing light bulbs etc.) to make sure the property was perfect for viewing. The sale process went very smoothly and we would highly recommend Balmain Realty to all prospective buyers and sellers in the area. All the best, Alvin & Karla
" Property Management Testimonial "
Dear all, Many thanks to you all for all of your help. I am really impressed by your efficiency and close follow-up. From the purchase to the rental, you have done an excellent job. We are lucky to be working with you, a very experienced team! Many thanks and warmest regards, Shirley
When we met Scott we were impressed by his family history in this locality in real estate. The impression, that we would get good communication and process, were born out during our experience resulting in a quick sale at our price. Paul & Sue
Dear Scott & Reg, Balmain Realty believes in traditional standards of client service; the value of true experience in the locality; and practical, timely advice to get the job done....all delivered with a light touch. For us this resulted in the best price for our house in an unpredictable market. Many thanks to everyone in your team for your support. We would certainly engage you again and would not hesitate to recommend you to other vendors. With best regards, Ken and Ann Gray
Kurt, Scott & Tami and team have been excellent throughout both our sale and purchase. Our investment property had been very well managed by their agency for some years, so it was with confidence that we engaged them. On the sale side, Kurt’s upfront advice on timing proved to be entirely accurate, and ultimately the sale price exceeded our expectations. Tami likewise did a great job of managing our tenant through the process. (Worth also noting that another prominent agency had provided us separate marketing advice – however they had undervalued our property by nearly 20%.) On the purchase side, Kurt understood our requirements very quickly, and was most helpful throughout all aspects from viewings until final settlement. Again, Tami was very proactive in managing the new tenancy. We are based overseas, and this didn’t pose any issues at all. Communications were spot on in terms of availability, frequency and method (email & phone), and we consistently felt up-to-date at every step of the process. Light-touch and well-humoured, it made for a very positive experience. We would thoroughly recommend the Balmain Realty team, without hesitation. They genuinely are experts in the local market, and offer genuinely professional down-to-earth service. Rachael & Luke
" Rozelle Home Purchase "
A quick note to convey my sincere thanks to you for the professionalism and support offered during the recent purchase of my property. Your intimate knowledge of the Balmain Peninsula and your honesty and support was appreciated. From the initial contact right through to settlement, you were transparent, reliable and approachable. Your style ensued in my confidence and trust in Balmain Realty. As a result of the positive process, I am now transferring the management of other properties to Balmain Realty. A real testament of your character was the assistance you offered following settlement when I locked myself out of the property! Thank you for making an onerous task easy. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with you. Tamara
Dear Scott, On behalf of Annette and I we would like to thank you for the professional and proficient service that you provided us during the purchase of our property. As you are aware we were searching for a property in the Rozelle and Balmain area and were undertaking this search via the Internet from Indonesia. As expatriates living abroad it was a somewhat daunting task to undertake. Your personal and professional approach was greatly appreciated. You demonstrated an honest and sincere approach to selling, one that embodied trust and confidence. Throughout the process you communicated regularly with us and openly discussed options and opportunities. You were transparent in your approach and provided us with prospective apartments and properties that were within our budget and reflected the characteristics we desired in a home. Living abroad and attempting to purchase a new home was an enormous task, a task made much more simple because of your dedication, support and professional approach to the way you do business. Once again thank you for the assistance in securing our beautiful new home. Regards PETER MANGLES
Hello Kurt, Thanks again for the way you and Scott handled the sale of the property. You got me a record price in a record time by way of your excellent and professional service. I will definitely recommend Balmain Realty to any person wanting to buy or sell property in the area should they ask. Regards, Ron
Hi Scott, Thank you for selling our apartment in Rozelle. The helpful advice and the professionalism of the sale not to mention achieving a RECORD PRICE was most appreciated. I would have no hesitation in recommending Balmain Realty and your services to prospective vendors and purchasers. Thanks for all your assistance during the sale process. Thanks, John
Stephen and Scott, Thanks to you both for the friendly and professional manner in which you acted for us in the sale of our property. Stephen was very frank in initially discussing where to set our price expectations and gave us a realistic picture of the state of the market. It gave us confidence to assess the purchase offers received. Your punctual attendance for openings, prompt feedback on inquiries and accessibility during the final sale negotiations were much appreciated. Regards, Jenny & Paul Reid
Hi Scott & Kurt, Thank you so much for your assistance in the sale of our property at Yara Avenue, Rozelle. We greatly valued your input regarding price and marketing and we were delighted when the apartment sold within 2 weeks of it coming onto the market. It was a pleasure dealing with you both. Kind regards Alan & Elizabeth Orr
" Property Management Testimonial - Tami Bennett "
Hi Scott, I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know how impressed I was with Tami Bennett’s service in renting our property recently. Due to an uncooperative tenant the task was more difficult than most and she managed the task extremely efficiently and professionally. All of her advice on handling the tenants (existing and prospective) was right on the money. She also repeatedly went above and beyond her job requirements, by collecting rental arrears and liaising with lawyers in regards to the bond recovery, when the property was not under her management. Even using her knowledge of the strata to get the tenants contact details, that would have otherwise been delayed some weeks, was exemplary. All in all, she has exceeded my expectations in every facet of service and got us the tenant and rent we were targeting. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tami and your agency and would be more than happy to provide references if required. Kind regards, Casey McLean
Thanks Scott for the professional way you handled the sale of our property. The level of service we received was excellent from start to finish. We appreciated your instructive feedback, local knowledge and the efficient way you responded to our queries. We would not hesitate to recommend Balmain Realty to anyone considering using your services in the future. Scott & Norelle Jones
" Apartment Purchase in Rozelle "
I would like to thank Steve Wilson for his professionalism in finding me a unit in Rozelle. He was the only agent who kept me informed and updated with all properties on the market. He was patient, courteous and professional at all times. It was no surprise after 12 months searching that I found a suitable property thanks to Steve and the team at Balmain Realty. I would also like to thank Scott Robertson who was always approachable and helpful including organising inspections after hours. Steve and Scott work superbly as a team, with all the staff of Balmain Realty reliable in any dealings I have had with them. It was a great relief to deal with people who return calls and emails in busy times. I can highly recommend Balmain Realty who were always a pleasure to deal with. Regards, Graham Hoyles
Dear Kurt, Following the recent successful purchase of a property through Balmain Realty, I am writing to express my appreciation for your considerable efforts in making the entire process such a simple and stress free experience. Your professionalism and expert knowledge of the area and building complex is certainly to be commended. In particular, your attention to detail and the prompt and friendly responses to our enquires was outstanding! Once again, sincerest thanks. We look forward to remaining in touch with your business. Kind regards, H.Schneider
Balmain Realty made purchasing in the 'Atelier' building in 2007, the renting of my apartment in 2011 and the eventual sale (whilst I was overseas) in 2012 very easy and all with minimal interaction and stress on my part. When it came to selling the property, Scott and his team’s expert knowledge of the building and suitable prospects lead to a very quick and mutually satisfactory outcome. Scott has always been approachable, attentive and willing to put himself out and always a pleasure to deal with unlike so many in the industry. I highly recommend Scott and the team whether you are buying, selling or renting. Thanks for all your help over the years. Kind regards, Chris
My wife & I tried selling our investment property in Rozelle for several months without success by two different real estate agencies. We finally decided to appoint Scott Robertson of Balmain Realty given his experience & success of apartment sales on the Balmain Peninsula. Within two weeks of being on the market they achived the price that we were waiting for. We would definately recommend Balmain Realty to others considering selling their property. Thank you Scott & the team at Balmain Realty! Regards, Harry and Tamar
Scott, Kurt and team. Thanks very much for your help during my recent property purchase in 'Balmain Cove'. The pre-sales service and responsiveness of your team was first rate. Naturally... I might have expected good PRE SALES... however what impressed me most was the AFTER SALES help I received. Buying the property whilst overseas was always going to be a little awkward logistically but your help after completion was both unexpected and sincerely appreciated. The recommendations you provided for good quality tradesman and your help co-ordinating access meant that we could move straight in when we arrived back in Australia with minimum fuss or disruption. Thanks again, Steve
We recently bought and sold a property through Balmain Realty using Stephen Wilson as both our seller and purchasing agent. We could not have asked for a more dedicated and sincere agent, nothing was too much trouble, and Steve kept us up to date with every offer for our sale property and worked his butt off getting us an excellent price on our purchase. Our sale property was happily sold at a record price for one bedders in Balmain Shores! We would recommend Steve and his team to any future purchaser or seller. Good job! Kind regards Karen & James Hector
I purchased my property in 2008 through Scott Robertson and due to his wonderful personal approach decided to sell my property through him again in 2012. I found Scott and the team from Balmain Realty to be both professional and personable. I never felt that I was being treated as solely a client, but that they truly cared about achieving the best possible result for me. My unit sold in more than reasonable time and Scott was of valuable assistance in making sure all things went off without a hitch. I would recommend Scott and the team from Balmain Realty to anyone and would not hesitate in using their services again if ever the need arose. Regards, Paul King
We would gladly recommend Scott and the staff of Balmain Realty. The whole selling experience has occurred quite calmly in what is usually a very stressful time. We have dealt with Real Estate Agents a number of times before and this is the first time we have felt like we were getting support to help us. We believe Scott's intimate knowledge of the 'Balmain Cove' market assisted us in achieving a better than expected sale price and in a shorter than expected timeframe. Thank you, Bruce and Jackie
Good Morning to the Team, Re: The Auction Saturday 21 Nov 2009 -3 Gipps Street, Drummoyne We wish to express our appreciation for a job well done!! I believe all parties, agents, vendors and purchasers are enjoying the success of the auction. I take this opportunity to thank you for your professsionalism. You followed through on every promise regarding the campaign and it is a pleasure to deal with sincere people. We will certainly make our recommendations for Balmain Realty at every opportunity. Best regards, F, M & B Rice
We would gladly recommend Scott and the staff of Balmain Realty. The service provided made the sale of our apartment hassle free. Being the first time either of us has sold property, we had many questions. Scott was very patient and knowledgeable. This coupled with Scott's professionalism made the potentially stressful process very reasonable. I am sure the sale of our apartment would have been much more difficult with another agency. Balmain Realty's results and experience in 'Balmain Cove' ensured the right tactics were employed and this led to a very good sale price. Thank you Scott and Balmain Realty.Anthony and Catarina Reale
Dear Scott, I would like to thank you for the amazing job that you did in selling my studio apartment. Not only did you manage to sell my apartment within two weeks, the price for which you sold it greatly exceeded my expectations. I must admit, when I first decided to sell my apartment, I had no idea of the selling process or what to expect from real estate agents. After having met with Scott and one other real estate agent, the decision of which agent to list with was very easy. I felt like I could genuinely trust Scott due to his professionalism, posititve attitude towards the sale of my property and intimate knowledge of the 'Balmain Shores' area. I recommend Scott and Balmain Realty to anyone interested in selling their property. Thanks again Scott - I could not be happier with your performance! Kind regardsRita Livanos
Hi Scott, Thank you for your professionalism in handling the sale of our property at 43 Terry Street, Rozelle "Atelier".

To Scott and the Balmain Realty team, Thank you for your management of my property for many years. I have nothing but praise for your professional approach concerning all issues. This successful partnership was due to your diligence and supportive approach to all concerned. Of particular note is the recent sale of my property. The property was sold in record time, achieving a very pleasing price and negotiations were undertaken with effective communication to reach an outcome, pleasing to all. I wish you all well for the future! Regards, Kay Eyre.
Hi Scott, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Balmain Realty for their professional manner in which they marketed the successful sale including the management of our property. We approached Balmain Realty to list our property as they have no doubt a strong and influential marketing knowledge of the area of Balmain and Rozelle. Kind Regards,Eddie Awad
We found Balmain Realty to be a fantastic agency to work with. Very professional and thorough. Exceeded all of our expectations on sale price and sale time. We would strongly recommend them to anyone thinking of selling! Regards, Brett & Celia Heffernan
Dear Scott, The sale of the above property settled last Friday. Many thanks to you for finding Robin, my son, a purchaser so quickly. I had expected to sit out the sales and marketing period of 6 weeks as we had agreed, but you managed to identify the buyer from the first weekly inspection, and concluded the sale before the end of the second week. Not least, Robin was over the moon with the price, the highest ever achieved in the 'Balmain Shores' development for a one bedroom unit. Well done! Best regards, Bertie San
Hi Property Management Team, Can you please pass on to your management that I continue to be impressed by you and your colleagues at Balmain Realty's professionalism and efficiency, plus in this case your genuine compassion and consideration. Regards,Kevin

My girlfriend and I just moved into our apartment in 'Balmain Shores' and we would just like to say how impressed we were with the management team and all their help. Not sure Property Managers get too many emails where tenants are very happy but we are and we thought you should know. Cheers, Dan

Will be in touch during my next visit to Australia and in the meantime send my best wishes to you and the team. Kind Regards, David Benning

Dear Steve, We would like to thank you for the care and attention with which you handled our recent purchase in 'Balmain Cove'. As you know, we had looked at several different apartments in the precinct and it was a direct result of your open and genuine dealings with us which determined our final choice. From the first inspection to the day of moving in, your attentive and informative assistance made the whole experience of becoming 'Balmain Cove' residents a pleasurable one. We already feel like locals and that is in large part due to your local knowledge and your support throughout the process. All the best,Jan & John Dickinson
I would like to express my appreciation for the manner in which Balmain Realty handled the recent sale of my apartment in the 'Atelier ' building at 41 Terry Street, Rozelle, demonstrating and displaying their professionalism. The management of the property was also with Balmain Realty. They had a very good management system, there was no need to worry about making any payments such as water rates, council rates, strata levies etc. & all rental income was received on time per monthly. Balmain Realty is very professional in every way and I will highly recommend to my friends and to other people. Kind Regards,Monte Lam
Dear Scott, We would like to thank you for your dedication to the sale of our property in 'Balmain Shores'. We loved our unit but we had simply outgrown it and were dreading the selling process. You made it so smooth and easy and we cannot thank you enough. Your professionalism was second to none and we could not believe that within just nine days we had sold at our exact asking price. Your knowledge of our 'Balmain Shores' complex is amazing, as is your database of purchasers waiting to buy in the area! From the very first moment we met with you to discuss our sale, right through to our settlement you have been an absolute pleasure to deal with. You have gone above and beyond in so many ways to make our property sale such a great experience. Thank you!Joe and Lisa Grenfell
What has made me personally impressed with my experience with Scott Robertson is that he has been nothing but upfront and professional. I have greatly appreciated his honesty and how he felt about the situation and what he recommended. Scott’s knowledge of the area was of great assistance and made me confident in my dealings with him and his team. And a mention about the Property Management team as well:They made everything so easy for me. They did all the work and had the knowledge and experience to be able to assist me with my final decisions about tenants. They are unbelievably friendly to deal with and I will miss corresponding with them. Kind RegardsTamara Spilstead
Hi Team, As landlords we love property managers like yourself. The rent keeps on rising and we hardly hear from the tenant. Thanks for being on the ball! I'd like to know how you continuously look after our property with such ease. Again, you have proven that you're at the top of your profession. Keep up the excellent work! Warmest,Wendy
Dear Scott, Thank you so much for selling my apartment in 'Balmain Shores' so quickly and efficiently. I was very impressed with your 100% prompt replies to email and telephone calls and your advice re the pricing of the apartment was strategic – the bonus when we settled on more than the listed price was, of course, greatly appreciated! This result was achieved through your professionalism and intimate knowledge of the 'Balmain Shores' complex and I would heartily recommend your services to anyone thinking of selling or buying in the area. Please feel free to use my sentiments in any forum you require – they are well deserved! Yours sincerelyDr Paul Donnelly
I would highly recommend Scott Robertson of Balmain Realty. My property was listed with another agent for 6 months with little response and having given it to Scott it was sold for a record price for the building within two weeks. My sincere thanks to Scott and I would not hesitate to do further business with Balmain Realty. Regards, Melanie Symons
Dear Scott, I would like to personally thank you for seeing through the sale of my property in the "Atelier" Building, Rozelle. Your skills lead to exchange of contracts in less than 3 weeks with a price that exceeded my expectations. That coupled with your excellent communication skills throughout the sale of the property, gives me no hesitation in recommending Balmain Realty to anyone. Regards,Joe Bavaro
For years I used a real estate agent in Balmain to manage my property in Rozelle. I was very dissatisfied with their service. In desperation I decided to sell my property. I contacted Scott Robertson of Balmain Realty. I was immediately impressed by his professionalism, knowledge and courtesy. Scott inspected my property and advised me as to what works should be done before placing my property on the market. The works were done and my property received a lot of interest within days of being on the market. Scott worked very hard to show my property to all who were interested, attending the property on many occasions. His efforts paid off as my property was sold within a few weeks at a great price. I wish I had contacted him sooner! He also managed to rent out the property for a significantly higher price for the new owner!I can highly recommend Scott Robertson of Balmain Realty both to sell and manage any property in Sydney as he has the expertise and the necessary ‘can do’ attitude to achieve the very best results. Thanks, Tracy
Sometime last year, I moved the rental management of my unit in "Balmain Shores", Rozelle from another agent to Balmain Realty. In the last quarter 2011, I made a decision to sell the unit. After discussions with several agents, I selected Scott Robertson of Balmain Realty. In my opinion Scott gave a clear picture of the current sales environment and presented himself well. I was kept well informed of the open house sales enquiry/visits which culminated in an offer from an interested party. Scott was able to convey my expectations to the interested party till an agreed price was reached. During the exchange of contracts, he helped in any way providing necessary information to my solicitors. I would commend him highly for his professionalism in rental management and sale of property. Regards,Charles Hew
We would highly recommend Balmain Realty to help you sell your house! The process of selling your house is a big deal – and getting the right agent to ensure that you get maximum value is critical. Scott from Balmain Realty was able to help us during the entire process, and provided guidance for all questions we had. He gave us a realistic expectation of the price we would most likely achieve and did not make any false promises while working hard to make sure we got the best possible outcome. We were able to sell out house within 2 weeks of listing and the result exceeded our expectation. Regards, Tanji.
I purchased my property where Scott Robertson was the selling agent. His service was at all times professional. As a first home buyer I was nervous about the buying process, but Scott’s service gave me the confidence to make an offer. I had no hesitation in engaging Scott to act as selling agent when I decided to sell my property. Once again his service was extremely professional and he ended up securing a price well above our expectations (and even above the asking price!). I am glad that I chose to engage him as my agent would not hesitate to recommended him to others, both buying and selling. Regards, Martin Waller
When my wife and I decided to sell our apartment at "Balmain Cove" our first thought was to go with Balmain Realty because of their excellent record in both the number of properties sold, and the prices they had achieved for apartment’s in our complex.We met Steve at an open house while we were doing a bit of homework before listing. After a brief chat we knew that with his integral knowledge of the area and his recent successes, as well as his pleasant manner, that he would be the one to sell our home.We certainly weren't disappointed when Steve rallied interest in our property even before the first open home and procured a buyer within two weeks of listing at a price that we were more than happy with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Steve, and the rest of the team at Balmain Realty, to any prospective seller. Regards,Geoff and Sherry Mahoney.
I'd like to thank Scott for his tremendous work is selling our property is such an uncertain property market. Scott is always available and keeps constantly in touch with you so you know what the current status is. In helping us find a buyer, he dug deeply into his database of clients to find the right person who would love our home and managed to find a buyer. I highly recommend Scott due to his excellent communication and his reliability in following up and completing requests. He is not and agent who gives you lip service, but one who gets the job done.Cheers,David
I would not hesitate to recommend Balmain Realty to anyone hoping to buy or sell on the Balmain Peninsula. Through what can be a very stressful and often confusing process, Scott provided sound and accurate advice in a highly professional manner. The administrative and financial aspects of my purchase were dealt with very swiftly and competently. When my pre-approved finance fell through, Scott was able to refer me to a capable broker which eventuated to me buying my dream home. On settlement, I especially enjoyed the bottle of French champagne delivered by hand with the keys :-) Regards, Michelle Davies
I and my wife Vicky have dealt with Steve Wilson and Tami Bennett of Balmain Realty for the purchase of our unit in 'Balmain Shores'. Steve’s Integrity in the processing of price offers, etc. was exemplary and Tami’s proactive approach in sorting out and fixing defects within the unit could not have been more prompt. We thank them for their efforts and have no hesitation in recommending Balmain Realty to other buyers, sellers or tenants within the area. Campbell Keenan
" Rozelle Resident "
I recently purchased a unit in 'Balmain Cove' for which Stephen Wilson was the agent. Initially I was reluctant to make an offer for it as my previous house was not even on the market. Stephen was very helpful and kept me well informed about the unit’s availability and in no way did I feel any pressure to buy. Eventually I did make an offer prior to putting my house on the market and despite the stress of that situation everything worked out well. When I had sold my house he was more than happy to facilitate my visits to show family and friends the unit – even on his days off. Stephen was always very professional and encouraging in his dealings with me. As I sit on my beautiful terrace now I am really appreciative of the fact that he kept me up to date with what was happening in regard to the unit because that was a major factor in my decision to make an offer. Regards, Denise Sneddon
We originally purchased our property through Balmain Realty three years ago, and when it was time to sell, there was no doubt that we would be using Scott and the team at Balmain Realty. From our initial valuation meeting, we felt comfortable in knowing that our property was being sold by the best.Our property was on the market for a very short week and a half before we had an offer we were happy to accept. The marketing was top notch, and the level of professionalism was second to none.Scott and Stepehn offered great advice, and we achieved the sale amount we wanted.Through the entire process, we were kept up to date, and there were no issues whatsoever. I would highly recommend Balmain Realty to any vendor or purchaser. Regards, Cameron & Shelley Wilson
Hi Steve & Scott, I would like to say how much I appreciate the professionalism that you and the rest of the Balmain Realty team showed in selling my unit. By utilising your network of interested buyers, you achieved a record price for my non waterfront two bedroom unit. On top of this you did this without any active marketing which meant that I didn't need to spend money on advertising. Thank you for the great work!Regards, John
" Great agent! "
We have recently bought a property through Scott, who managed the entire process seamlessly and with patience. It was not a straightforward sale, but Scott was able to control all parties and assist us in getting the result we were hoping for. He has been extremely supportive in regards to the sale process and moving etc. We highly recommend him!
" Reliable agent "
Scott always provides clear and credible advice and communication
" Excellent Agent "
I have found Scott and his staff excellent in all aspects of our purchase and subsequent rental of the property. Although they may have many clients at any given time, There was always time for Scott to say hello and be involved every time i just popped into the office for a minor issue. I have no hesitation in recommending Balmain Realty to anyone contemplating buying or renting a property.
" Great Experience "
We recently sold our unit and when deciding on an Agent to list it with we immediately thought of Balmain Realty given Scott's great reputation in the area. We weren't at all dissapointed- Scott was very professional and we sold within a very short period of time. I would also like to thank Jaime who has been very friendly and helpful.
" Job Well Done! "
Scott and his team have been brilliant. Professional, informative at all stages of the journey. Always on hand to answer any questions. i would highly recommend them. I wouldn't consider selling again with anyone else. Thank you for a great experience at a time when selling a property has been tough. A great result.
" Great after Sales Service "
While Scott was very helpful our main contact was with Jaime Wallace. She went out of her way to assist us, especially after contract exchange when most agents lose interest.
" Professional Agent "
Scott was very helpful and efficient. He made the sale of my property very easy.
" Smooth Relocation "
Very happy with the help from Scott and Jaime with respect to our move into Balmain Cove. Whilst they did not act for us, every time we needed to call them their service was exemplary.
" Persistence Pays Off "
Scott and the team did a great job in sometimes very trying circumstances. They remained calm, followed a clear process and strategy to eventually achieve an outstanding result. Highly recommended.
" Great agent! "
We have just sold our property through Scott at Balmain Realty and found his service to be of a very high standard. Scott is honest and approachable, he achieved the result we were hoping for in a very short time frame. Scott has a great understanding of the Balmain and Rozelle markets, and is a pleasure to deal with. We couldn't recommend him more!
" Scott is a Highly Skilled and Dependable Agent "
I did my research and Scott's credentials were impressive. After working with him, I realised that he is exceptionally proficient at his job and is high skilled in his area of expertise. He provided me with all the information and advice I needed and he managed to sell the place at a very good price. I would highly recommend this agent.
" Job Well Done! "
Scott and his team have been brilliant. Professional, informative at all stages of the journey. Always on hand to answer any questions. I would highly recommend them. I wouldn't consider selling again with anyone else. Thank you for a great experience at a time when selling property has been tough. A great result.
" Great Experience "
We recently sold our unit and when deciding on an Agent to list it with we immediately thought of Balmain Realty given Scott's great reputation in the area. We weren't at all disappointed - Scott was very professional and we sold in a very short period of time. We would also like to thank Jaime who has been very friendly and helpful.
" Great agent that exceeded expectations on all fronts "
Very professional, understands the market environment well, follows up with updates constantly, works tirelessly for the buyer and seller to ensure that he delivers on what he says. Couldn't have asked for more out of the agent.
" Easy quick transaction, thank you "
I recently bought a 3 bedroom house in Rozelle, Scott facilitated an efficient and easy transaction. It all happened very quickly, which is exactly how it should be. The bottle of champagne picking up the keys was a great finishing touch."
" Great Agent "
Scott did an excellent job from the appraisal through to the sale with great communication throughout the whole process. I would have no problem recommending Scott.
" Highly Recommended! "
In buying this, our next, home, we found Scott to be trustworthy and honest and fair in his negotiation with us in the purchase of the property. Scott has a high degree of knowledge of the Union Balmain complex and of the local property market in general. As a result of our experience of Scott when purchasing this property, we entrusted him with the sale of our then current home. We found we had the same, high standard, experience of Scott throughout that transaction. Scott is a highly professional, trustworthy and knowledgeable individual. We won't hesitate recommending him and his team to anyone wanting to sell a property, or who's interested in purchasing a property Scott is the agent for.
" Great Agent "
Scott has a great network in the Rozelle/Balmain peninsula and able to sell my property off-market with minimum fuss and hassle with a tenant in place. I was pleased at the short turn around for Scott to find a buyer and exchange unconditionally so close before Christmas.
" Highly recommended "
If you are looking into purchasing/ selling in Balmain/ Rozelle, Scott would be the man to go to.

Scott is a professional Agent always friendly and polite with awesome communication. Fabulous with helping us understand what was required to make a smooth sale. We would both highly recommend Scott without hesitation.

As a result of Scott's outstanding local market knowledge, cool head and highly professional approach taken with selling our property, we have no hesitation in recommending him and Balmain Realty to anyone wishing to sell a property in the Rozelle/Balmain area.

" Fantastic local knowledge "
Scott has a deep knowledge of the Balmain/Rozelle market, and was very responsive and supportive throughout the sale process.
" A great sale "
Scott worked tirelessly throughout the campaign and achieved an excellent sale price, meeting all my expectations.
" Scott knows Balmain Cove "
Scott is the undisputed expert on Balmain Cove. He knows the properties but more importantly knows how to match the RIGHT property to a buyer. The greatest evidence of the quality of Scott's work and professionalism is from the interactions with every resident you pass during property inspections - every person randomly encountered is friendly to Scott. Given virtually every property in the building had been handled by Scott at some point, this shows he cares about the buyer and seller experience. Cannot recommend Scott highly enough!
" Great Agent "
We have worked with Scott and his team a couple of times now, and on each occasion he brings the deepest local knowledge and professional approach to the table. Can only recommend you engage his services if selling in the Rozelle area.
" Top Agent! "
Scott was able to find for us the apartment of our dreams. He knew exactly what we wanted, and kept our requirements in mind when the opportunity to purchase came up. His knowledge of values and availability in the Balmain Shores and Cove complexes is second to none. We found Scott and his team efficient, attentive, patient, and courteous at all times. Highly recommended!
" Great agent to have represent you "
We have dealt with Balmain Realty in the past as they were managing one of our properties. Through Scott's contacts, we recently bought another property. I am now happy to add that property under their management as they are exactly what I look for in an agent. if you want good representation and speedy response, talk to Scott and Jenny!
" I truly appreciate your thoughfulness and guidance "
Thank you so much for making the sale of my apartment at 'Balmain Shores' the most effortless of any property I have ever sold. I truly appreciate your thoughfulness and guidance and congratulate you and Balmain Realty on the very professional and friendly service I experienced during the sale period.
" Would not hesitate to recommend Scott "
Our property in 'Bamain Cove' was sold through Balmain Realty and was handled by Scott Robertson. Although the sale was a difficult one, due to circumstances beyond the control of the agent, Scott always maintained a positive outlook and a professional approach. I would not hesitate to recommend Scott to anyone planning the sale of his or her property in the foreseeable future.
" Dear Scott, "
We have successfully moved into our apartment and are happy both with the apartment and with our new environment. Mary and I want to thank you too, for the integrity with which you handled the sale of the apartment and for assisting us in the purchasing process - both are sincerely appreciated. We wish you well with your career in real estate - you cannot help but succeed. We hope too, that we will see you in and around, Balmain Cove. Best Regards,
" Dear Wayne, "
This letter is to thank you for your professional attitude and assistance while my wife and I were looking to purchase a property in your area. I very much appreciate the fact, that although we were genuine purchasers to whom you could have sold a property, you advised us of the availability of another property which fitted our criteria and which was listed with another agent. The result was that i bought that property. I would also like to say that if you had the property listed, i would have been very happy to have purchased it through your office. Our enthusiasm for properties in this particular complex was initiated by your friendly and helpful advice when you first showed us a property in the area. The above highlights your integrity and professionalism, and I have no hesitation in recommending you to any of my friends and acquaintances should they be seeking to purchase a property in your area. With best regards,
