Testimonial from Daniel Ryou
If Alex can’t sell your home, no other agent can!

We just sold our family home with Alex. Our home was certainly not an easy one to sell being on the main road with no parking. Although difficult, Alex’s motivation, persistence and pro active approach resulted in a successful sale!

It was not just a “number” to Alex, he genuinely cared about what’s best for our family. He went above and beyond what his job required him to do.

We would highly recommend Alex to anyone looking for a reliable and knowledgeable professional who gives 110% at all times! Thank you again Alex. Read More

Testimonial from Marc Nicholas
Concise sales strategy and clear communication resulted in better than expected sale price

From the moment Alex was engaged he quickly got to work introducing potential buyers for our property prior to the marketed campaign.

Alex executed on the agreed strategy and kept us informed of the state of play throughout the campaign.

Alex successfully filtered out the unseasoned buyers and distilled a small group of hot buyers. When things heated up during the campaign he recommended the appropriate time to engage with hot buyers and we sold prior to auction at the upper-end of our expected range for the property. Read More

Testimonial from Sandra and Symon - Sutherland Crescent, Darling Point
Most professional and hard-working agent we have ever dealt with

Real Estate Agent Di Wilkenfeld has proven to be a complete professional in all of our dealings with her in regards to our recent property sale.

With her unique flair for meticulous presentation, Di helped us create the ‘Wow’ factor for our property and was very proactive in the property preparation prior to the sales campaign launch. We have bought and sold quite a few properties over the past five years and Di is, by far, the most professional and hard-working agent we have ever dealt with.

We respect the fact that selling luxury property is always a tricky proposition, but Di knows her market extremely well and kept us fully informed throughout the process. Our apartment did present some unique challenges – suffice to say, Di’s outstanding negotiation skills and determination, in a difficult market, proved to be the key in achieving an outstanding result.

Di’s attention to detail is also incredible and her advice on the market and marketing strategies were exceptional and paid dividends. Close friends recommended Di to us after she sold two of their properties. After our recent experience, we have no hesitation in using her services again or recommending her to prospective sellers.

Testimonial from Gilda on behalf of the Body Corporate - Thornton Street, Darling Point
Enthusiastic and tenacious disposition

It is without hesitation, that we would whole heartedly recommend Di Wilkenfeld as the agent of choice to sell your property.

Being on the Strata Committee, we were assigned to interview several real estate agents for the proposed sale of the only unit in the block owned by the Body Corporate.

Our selection was obvious from the outset. Di presented her marketing recommendations which included comprehensive advice on upgrading the interiors and professional styling, both of which she felt were essential to enhance the final outcome.

Di's passion for real estate coupled with her enthusiastic and tenacious disposition was apparent from the moment we met. We felt comfortable with Di's professional guidance and once we gave her the green light, she promptly coordinated her team to prepare the property for sale within 5 days, to maximize the potential of the apartment prior to marketing.

Our advertising campaign generated substantial buyer enquiry and well attended inspections, creating competitive bidding and a sensational price on the auction night, which far exceeded our expectations producing $231,000 above our reserve price!

As the property was only a 41 sqm one bedroom, south facing unit overlooking the driveway with no parking or balcony, we were absolutely blown away with the result, as we could never have imagined that this figure could be achieved.

We believe this outstanding 'record price' was only accomplished due to Di's enthusiastic approach, honest advice, insightful strategies and brilliant negotiating skills.

Di was an absolute pleasure to deal with and we believe her expert knowledge, solid work ethic and transparent approach are a strong testament to her ongoing success and continuing referral business. Read More

Testimonial from Robyn and Trevor - Derby Street, Vaucluse
Professional, approachable, dedicated and hardworking

I have known Di Wilkenfeld for 20 years. She is professional, approachable, dedicated and hardworking. She has a network of associates from decorators, builders to movers that allow for a seamless and complete service under her direct supervision.

Di did an outstanding job when she sold a house for me several years ago, so I am a repeat happy client. This time she sold my elderly parents’ apartment, which was a very emotional and difficult process for them, as my parents were incredibly attached to their home of 30 years. At all times Di demonstrated patience, kindness and respect, qualities that are as important, if not more important to me, than the actual sale.

I was most impressed with the following points in particular:

• Her efforts in advising in detail a cosmetic upgrade and overseeing the work, to make the property more modern in presentation and more marketable to a wider customer base.

• She gave an honest assessment of the value of the property at the outset.

• She guided my parents patiently for 6 months through what was for them, a very emotional process. She kept me fully updated with every development in detail and called on me for support when appropriate.

• She sold the apartment within 2 weeks of marketing for $176,000 above our expectations, materially due to her exceptional negotiating skills, hard work and conscientiousness. She created a sense of urgency amongst the interested buyers that ultimately maximised the final sale price.

• Her extra commission on the higher sale price was immaterial, however she was motivated to go the extra mile by her unrelenting determination to maximise the final outcome for her clients.

I would not hesitate to highly recommend Di to any potential seller wanting to maximise the sale price of their property and feel confident that they are in capable, diligent hands. Read More

Testimonial from Vivienne and Peter - Carlotta Road, Double Bay
Professional, hardworking and extremely diligent

Thank you so much for all your help in the lead up to the phenomenal sale of my late parents' home two weeks ago.

Nearly 20 years ago when Peter and I sold our first home we had the great fortune of choosing you as our agent. We promised you then, that if we were ever to sell a property in the future, we would use you as our agent. Two years ago, we did just that and once again we were thrilled with the result!

This time it was a little more emotional as we were now selling my late parents' home and once again you did not disappoint us.

You are professional, hardworking and extremely diligent. It was truly a pleasure to work with you. Your attention to detail in the preparation of my parents' apartment for sale and your cool calm and collected attitude helped us secure a price that was more than $200,000 over the reserve prior to auction! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Your team of builders, painters, carpet layers, stylists and cleaners all go above and beyond the call of duty and are available 24/7 to meet the needs of difficult vendors. They are all a testament to you.

We are pleased to make the same pledge to you once more and we are happy to recommend you to any prospective vendor. Please do not hesitate to offer Peter and I as referees.

We wish you continued success as you certainly deserve it. Read More

Testimonial from Alan and Nicci - Gilgandra Road, North Bondi
Standout in an industry

Nicci and I would like to express our sincere thanks and utmost respect to you for the role you played in the sale of our home.

Having made the decision to downsize and sell we met with and interviewed four real estate agents in the area. You took such immediate interest in both ourselves and our home that the decision was an easy one and we felt comfortable in entrusting you with the sale of our biggest and most emotional asset. Our decision was well justified. You lived up to and exceeded all our expectations.

At our very first meeting you arrived with James, so much more than a handyman. Together we assessed the modifications that would most effectively add value. James undertook a series of renovations and repairs with as much energy and enthusiasm as if it were his own home. He is one of the kindest, cleverest and capable of people and we are incredibly grateful to him as well as Jon Paul the stylist who transformed our home to the point that I had some serious doubts as to why we would ever sell.

You were so supportive in every step of the process. You coordinated all the various projects required with amazing efficiency and attention to costs and our timeline. As promised you were available at all times taking and returning calls and email after hours and weekends.

You consulted with us on all decisions and heard what we had to say. The photos and board displayed our home with the pride and love we have for it. We expected our home to do well in the market but again you exceeded our expectations with a record price for the street after only one week on the market.

We believe the “Di-factor” makes you a standout in an industry that is competitive and ruthless. Thank you for making the process of selling a home as painless as it could be. You are a professional of the highest calibre and deserve continued success. If you have potential clients who would like to discuss this privately with us we would be happy to assist and they are welcome to contact us initially by email above.

We hope the new owners will be as happy and content in our home as we have been. Read More
