My family engaged the services of Jaime Upton to sell my father’s property at Circular Quay in Sydney. Jaime was a fantastic agent from the beginning of the sale right through to the end. It was clear from the moment of meeting Jaime that she had excellent knowledge of the Sydney prestige property market as she was across every nuance of it. I had confidence in her experience and ability the moment I met her. Her professional approach enabled a sale above the expected price prior to the auction date. Her hard work commenced way before the marketing, as she organised a team of professionals to take care of and remove/store my father’s life-long belongings, re-carpet and paint and, have the property so magnificently styled. I would thoroughly recommend Jaime to anyone for either a sale or a purchase as she is totally committed to her client and I had complete faith in her throughout a very difficult time of selling my deceased father’s estate. It is obvious that Jaime is a strong vendors agent. She was brilliant!

I would wholeheartedly like to recommend Jaime Upton of Sotheby’s to potential vendors. I found her to be professional, hugely informed on the market, tenacious, ethical and above all honest and working in the interest of the vendor, she is definitely always on your side.
Jaime has extensive high net worth world-wide contacts which is admirable in one so young, a testament to the trust people put in her ability to deliver, deliver the price you want, not one dictated to you.?Jaime worked extraordinarily hard to negotiate the sale close to my dream price of $18,000,000. Much closer by a few million than the other agents I interviewed and who told me I wouldn’t achieve.?
I previously met Jaime a year prior to the sale of my property when she successfully secured the listing and subsequent sale of my sister’s residence also within ‘Wharf Terraces’. My sister and I both found Jaime to be personable & empathic in all of our dealings.
I was approached by and interviewed several well-known agents and agencies, but I chose to list ‘16 Wharf Terraces’ with Jaime and her agency. Jaime, along with her assistant, worked hard, and a combination of her intelligence, an extraordinary database, sales skills and work ethic resulted in an excellent result which was both timely and set a sales record for the ‘Wharf Terraces’ in this current market!
I am delighted with the result and would highly recommend her skills to anyone contemplating listing any unique or high-end property in the Sydney market.

Jaime Upton and her Executive Assistant made the sale of my property in Point Piper incredibly simple and stress free. I found the speed at which tasks were executed to be exceptional and the communication between all parties to be high level professional and conducted with diligence. Meticulously preparing magnificent marketing they made the entire process seamless; everything was explained perfectly and clearly with an emphasis on database reach. Jaime clearly knows the prestige market innately. Using their network and knowledge base the turnaround time between listing and sale was minimal, it was truly a brilliant pre-auction sales result achieved. I cannot recommend Jaime and the Sotheby's team enough for all their time and hard and brilliant work.
