Five Star Service
I chose Daphne Sauvage out of many agents because she was clear and honest in what she could offer me as a client. She did not annoy me with phone calls before signing, as did many agents who kept calling despite the fact that I told them not to. She allowed me the time and space to work out what I wanted to do, without pressure. she was forthright before, during and after the sale. Daphne and her fabulous team sold my apartment at auction for the price stated from the beginning. She offered a first class service with warmth, humour and expertise. She made the whole process simple and took away the anxiety regarding selling. She worked very hard to achieve the result. I would definitely rate Daphne 5 stars for performance, organisational skills, expertise, knowledge of the area and prices. She is a force to be reckoned with when things get tough. She is relentless when it comes to protecting her client which gave me a sense of calm throughout the process. I would definitely employ Daphne again to sell any future real estate.

Daphne Sauvage has just achieved a sale for us in 48 hours after the same property has been on the market for nine months and gone through two separate campaigns with two other agents. Daphne is true to her word!
Mr Thaler, Hopewood Gardens - Thornton Street, Darling Point
After failed campaigns, and many other agents attempting to sell my property, Daphne was the only one able to achieve the result she promised. My one (great) regret is that it was not placed in your hands from the beginning – but enough of the past. Words cannot express my gratitude for the manner in which you handled the sale. Once again, thank you and I hope that when you need help, there is a ‘Daphne’ there for you.
Dr Langford, Marathon Rd, Darling Point
I had given up hope until Daphne took over the sales campaign and was able to get my property sold. I didn’t think the day would dawn when I would say that ‘Real Estate Agents’ acted with integrity and discretion but you have renewed my faith!
Mrs K Gerathy, Lurline Bay
Within three weeks of her getting involved, the property was sold for a price we had been trying to get for 6 months. Her understanding of the market, respect for us and our time and her ability to find a suitable buyer was very impressive.

Masterful negotiator, the best agent ever
25 September 2018
Daphne Sauvage become a good friend of my family’s after buying and selling multiple properties for my brother. She achieved excellent results for each property sold and was always an absolute pleasure to work with. Her knowledge of the market, ability to handle any situation with intelligence and charm and masterful ability to negotiate makes her the best agent anyone could trust to represent them.
When it was time for me to sell my treasured home there was only one agent for me and that was Daphne Sauvage. As a very good, close friend Daphne understood the challenges I had had with with my neighbour and was able put that aside and represent my house in its full glory and true value. Resulting in her being able to achieve an outstanding result under very difficult circumstances, at all times I was made to feel I had the best person possible looking after me. Her honesty, intregrity and ability to stand firm and hold her own puts her in a class Above all others. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to work with best in the real estate business. She is an absolute Super Star ... Legend ... and I love her.
We wanted to take a moment to thank you for your extraordinary work in selling our home at 3/24 Mona Rd.
The fact that you were able to attain a price for us that was beyond our hopes and expectations in a market that, quite clearly, is turning, was really just the end point of all the work you put into the sale.From the moment we met you six months ago we knew that we wanted you to sell our home. Your openness, honesty and integrity, not to mention your intimate knowledge of the local market, made you shine head and shoulders above your competitors.
In the lead up to putting our home on the market you steered and guided us in the most clear and confident way. We always felt completely at ease with your expertise and your recommendations for strategy as you gently but firmly steered us towards an open campaign culminating in auction. Once the open-for-inspections started (can you believe there were only three of them?) you kept us fully informed of the market reaction to the apartment without ever lifting our expectations unreasonably. And then, when the offer came through, your negotiation skills were masterful.
Beyond all that, Daphne, it was an absolute pleasure working with you. We’ve so enjoyed welcoming you into our home for all our meetings and you’ve made what could have been a traumatic process very, very enjoyable.
You’re an absolute credit to the real estate industry, Daphne and, of course, to Sotheby’s International Realty. As you know, we’ve already bought a property in NZ (through Sotheby’s New Zealand!) and we’d be delighted to welcome you to our new home if ever you happen to be in the Hawkes Bay area.
Thank you, once again, Daphne, for all of your professionalism, dedication and friendship and we both wish you the greatest of future success.
David & Annabel Mason
We were so thrilled with our Auction result on Monday evening and we wish to thank you Daphne, and your team at Sotheby’s Double Bay, for your thoroughly professional and dedicated approach in successfully marketing our property in Bondi.
There is a true gift in being efficient, inspiring and friendly all at the same time. Your constant phone calls and updates were particularly helpful Daphne. We would confidently recommend the expertise and integrity of this team.
Jim & Deb Moses
Daphne is a very talented agent. I have worked with her on two occasions: when I bought and sold the same house! Her market knowledge is thorough, which helped all parties establish realistic expectations. Last but not least, her bubbly personality and enthusiasm are contagious.
Ms Salter, Underwood Street, Paddington
You were magnificent in the sale of my unit. Your approach was extremely professional and gave the sale the maximum exposure to the public. Of course, none of this would have amounted to much if the sale weren’t made. But you did it again. Not only did I have a sale before auction but also what I feel was the maximum price. Well done.
Richard E Grilliot, Ranelagh – Darling Point Rd, Darling Point
Yvonne and I would like to congratulate you on the sale of our unit in Darling Point. You ran a first class campaign and were rewarded with a record price for that building. Congratulations and thank you for a job extremely well done. It was a great pleasure to work with you.
C Gorman, Thornton Place – Thornton St, Darling Point
You have restored our faith in Real Estate Agents and the entire auction process! We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone and everyone who is thinking of selling a property, as we are 100% sure that you will behave with the same level of integrity, loyalty, professionalism, warmth and humility when dealing with anyone who entrusted you with their property.
Sarwat & Courtney, Darling Point
There is no question that you are by far the best agent I have worked with. I would of course hope that other professional agents would be as tenacious and helpful, although we know this is not the rule.â€¨
