Thank you for the incredibly good service

Dear Nuri,
Just a short note to thank you for the incredibly good service you provided in selling our two properties at Potts Point and Rushcutters Bay.
From the moment we had our first conversation on the phone to start the process of appointing Laing & Simmons; through to the marketing and then to the sale with the prospective buyers you have been a fantastic operator. The entire package offered by Laing & Simmons is of the highest quality and ensures that the sellers and buyers are looked after swiftly and professionally. You really worked to present the two apartments at the highest standard; both for the marketing photography as well as for the "open" times. This ensured that Philippa and I received the best price possible but a fair price.
Could you also pass on to your rental group that I have appreciated their high standard of service during the many years Laing & Simmons have provided the rental management functions for the two properties.
Overall, Laing & Simmons Potts Point is a very professional organisation in the property market.
Thank you again for your assistance and good luck for the future.

Caroline Has Been Professional

To whom it may concern,

Caroline has managed several of our properties over many years, at all times Caroline has been very professional, courteous and efficient in the way she has dealt with us.

Caroline has always kept us informed about our tenants and the state of the properties as well as keeping us up to date about different requirements that might have arisen and at times has waited / or offered to wait for trade’s people on our behalf when we have not been able to attend.

We have built a great rapport with Caroline and value her services greatly her overall demeanor is warm and engaging and we always feel that we can approach her at any time without it being a problem.

It is because of her dedication and hard work as Senior Property Manager that we have chosen to stay with Laing & Simmons as long as we have.

Kind regards

Jeffrey Onishi

We feel content knowing our four property leases are in his capable hands.

Dear Mr. Hayek,

We are writing to you to express our gratitude towards your property management team leader Jeffrey. He came highly recommended to us by the previous owner of our recently bought investment property. In hindsight, we are sure the previous owner had encountered the same professional and competent service we have experienced, by which compelled him to introduce us to Jeffrey.

During our dealings we felt that Jeffrey has very strong communication and people skills. He was the bridge between us and the tenants whenever problems occurred, and dealt with them in an discreet manner, smoothly and efficiently.

Also, during our many conversations, he proved to be very knowledgeable and experienced in his field of work. Jeffrey offered us lots of useful and practical information regarding policy issues/legalities, and helpful suggestions concerning house clean-up etc.

Thirdly, Jeffrey is extremely efficient and patient, often answering our emails after hours at night or even during the weekend- we are very impressed with his work ethic and diligence! Hence, due to the trust quickly established between us, when the lease of our other investment property expired, we did not hesitate to enlist the service of your agency and ask Jeffrey to take care of it. Jeffrey managed all the online advertising, organizing the property photo shoot, and made sure all house inspections ran smoothly to ensure a new tenant was quickly found.

Consequently, we would like to applaud this agency for hiring such a professional and exceptional staff member. We feel content knowing our four property leases are in his capable hands.

Kind Regards,

Silvia Vitale

Silvia was meticulous in ensuring that I was kept well informed

"Silvia recently managed the sale of my property in Potts Point. Living interstate Silvia was meticulous in ensuring that I was kept well informed.

I received a detailed marketing strategy, and up to date news on the changing market. During the four week campaign, I received twice weekly written reports as well as verbal reports on potential buyer interest.

I was impressed with the team of professionals she has drawn together and their work on the presentation of the property and the legal requirements were first class.

On auction day, there were six registered bidders and Silvia relayed the bidding to me via phone, bid by bid. The result was far better than expected,and attracted well deserved media attention.

I have no hesitation in recommending Ms Vitale to anyone needing real estate advice."

Excellent Result

Dear Nuri,

I am writing to thank you for the excellent result you delivered this last week, with the very quick sale of my little one-bedroom apartment at 4/42 Bayswater Road “Coonana”, Rushcutters Bay. It must be some kind of record – contracts exchanged in under a week from the first day of listing!

From the outset, you were clearly the front-runner for the job. I was very impressed with your professionalism, integrity, excellent communication skills and attention to detail. All this coupled with your in-depth understanding of the local market gave me the confidence that you would achieve a good result.

I was delighted to receive and accept a solid offer after only one open for inspection. The $505,000 achieved price was far above my own expectations and it was all due to your marketing strategy which was spot-on and clearly resonated with potential buyers. I would like to point out that the 3 other agents that I interviewed completely missed the mark, with 2 quoting prices between $460,000-$480,000 and another wildly overestimating the value of the apartment at $520,000-$530,000. Considering that a similar apartment in the complex was passed-in at auction and has still failed to find a buyer at $530,000 after many weeks on the market is a testament to your strategic nous and incomparable skills at getting buyers over the line.

You have been a pleasure to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone wishing to buy or sell property in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

Thank you Nuri!

Yours sincerely,

And so this is the only feedback -100% positive! - that we could give any prospective seller

Dear Nuri,

Firstly thank you very much for the outstanding sales result which you achieved for our apartment, in not only meeting but exceeding our expectations! Yet another record price for The Galleria.

Having dealt with quite a few agents over the past 10 years, we were adamant that we would be more selective when choosing our selling agent this time. So when we decided to sell, we spoke to several owners in our building who have used your services, both as buyers and sellers, and we received only positive comments. The feedback from all of them was absolutely 100% positive.

From the start you gave us all the information we required, explained the sales process that you would implement and followed up on every commitment that you made.

Thank you.

And so this is the only feedback -100% positive! - that we could give any prospective seller who was thinking of engaging your services, Nuri. Your extensive knowledge of the area, of the people in it and your outstanding sales and people skills has resulted in a fantastic outcome for us.

Also please thank the staff in your office who were also very efficient and professional.

Nuri, we have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone who is thinking of selling a property.

Kind Regards

Excellent service as always

Many thanks for the report, Rachel. Excellent service as always, and very much appreciated.

The unit looks a bit tired. We'll discuss, consider what to do, and get back to you when xxx returns from xxx later this month.

All the best

Outstanding Agent

To whom it may concern,

Outstanding among real estate agents, Nuri Shik is an exceptionally generous-spirited person. This is the second time I have worked with him
and I can unreservedly recommend him.

Nuri has a sparkling upbeat personality, established contacts with solicitors and tradesmen with proven track records, and a long history dealing in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

He recently organised a cosmetic renovation of my unit, secured the best possible price at a discounted fee, then charmed the new owners into
keeping the sale smooth and effortless.

My apologies if this reads like a rave review, its just that in business one so rarely stumbles upon genuine treasures.

Silvia Vitale

Silvia was very positive, very involved and helpful and a pleasure to work with, I can't recommend her highly enough.

Silvia recently managed the sale of my flat in Potts Point for me and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

Living overseas it wasn't as straight forward for me to manage everything and Silvia's help was really invaluable as she went above and beyond. She was very knowledgeable and was able to offer advice and contacts for everything from the best methods for sale, to furniture hire, to other contractors.

Silvia's help and hard work resulted in three offers on my unit and she was able to guide me through the process and offer her advice at every step resulting in achieving a sale at a great price for me within six weeks of putting the unit on the market.

Unfortunately during the settlement period there was a flood in the building resulting in some damage to my unit whilst I was away and unable to contact anyone to sort everything out. Silvia was fantastic stepping to help take on all the issues and liaising with everyone involved to get everything fixed in time for the settlement date. She truely went above and beyond and it felt like she really cared and was invested in making sure everything went well.

Silvia was very positive, very involved and helpful and a pleasure to work with, I can't recommend her highly enough.

We couldn't be happier with Silvia or the result she got for us

We couldn't be happier with Silvia or the result she got for us. Our expectations were surpassed as a result of her determination and her convictions on price and market conditions. She was also great to deal with, honest and very pleasant. She kept us constantly updated and gave us spot on advice and assistance with improving the property for sale. Highly recommended - we will definitely be contacting Silvia for any future property sales.
