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. Read More
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
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
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
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
It was such a pleasure to work with you! it's so refreshing to deal with someone that is down to earth and genuine. Thank you again - we really appreciate your help. Read More

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. Read More
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. Read More
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. Read More
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! Read More
Harriet France demonstrated a consistent commitment and dedication to acting in our best interest throughout the entire campaign. She remained positive and optimistic even though the Covid-19 crisis escalated within a week or two of the listing commencement. Her enthusiasm and belief never faltered and she remained true to her word in achieving the best sale result possible. Read More
I found Harriet to be a pleasure to deal with. Honest and reliable. Always courteous, attentive and focused on the tasks at hand. Under difficult circumstances, she got us an excellent result. Read More
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. Read More
Daphne Sauvage has just achieved a sale for us in 48 hours after the same property has been on the market for 9 months and gone through two separate campaigns with two other agents. Daphne is true to her word! Read More
Daphne Sauvage became 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.

I would definitely rate Daphne 5 stars for her 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. Read More
We recently employed the services of James McCowan and his team to sell our family home in Vaucluse. James exceeded our expectations at every turn, focusing on our needs and requests. We always felt totally looked after and at ease with every step of the process. His professionalism, expertise & marketing ability was exceptional & regular telephone and written updates following open inspections kept us fully informed about the progress, always expressing his recommendations clearly & sincerity.

It is pleasing to me that I am writing this reference for James McCowan. While I have only known James for just over one year, I have come to appreciate the “something” very special about this young man. He demonstrates a supreme intelligence with a calm purposeful disposition and a strong, yet modest and caring nature. He demonstrates intuitive problem solving techniques coupled with a breadth of understanding that is most unique. James has outstanding leadership capabilities. James has the total respect of his peers and clients alike both for the qualities which I have described above and for the humble and sincere manner in which he conducts himself and leads others. His reliability is faultless. His effectiveness is “top shelf” and his integrity is beyond question. James is destined for success, not only because of his extraordinary ability and not only because of his determination to succeed. It is the whole package that will “do it” for him. James has taken the “sting” out of the Sale of our existing home and the search for something suitable for my wife and myself for the future.
It is an absolute pleasure for me to recommend James McCowan to you. People of this superb quality are very rare. Read More
I write to express my gratitude and admiration for the service provided by you and your Team to facilitate the sale of our investment property situated at 6/202 Jersey Road, Woollahra. Whilst I have known you through business for many years I have not previously had occasion to appoint you to manage the sale of a property. On this particular occasion we interviewed a number of agents including some who claimed to be more experienced in this particular area. However, after careful consideration we decided to appoint you in the belief that you would provide the highest level of professionalism, service and outcome. Might I say that not only were we never disappointed but constantly you and your Team exceeded our every expectation. I won't bother you with the details but in every respect, from start to finish, from small issues to big issues, you anticipated, you were proactive and you got the result.
Thank you once again and please pass on our appreciation to members of your Team. Knowing full well of your expert follow-up and networking I am sure we will hear from you on a regular basis, but in any event you will certainly be the first person we will turn to on the next occasion. Read More
James McCowan and his team worked tirelessly to sell my Paddington terrace recently and I am delighted with the result and the process. James contacted me on a daily basis, supporting and guiding me but never pushing me into unwanted or hasty decisions. His professional yet personable approach is unique, I felt as though I was dealing with a knowledgeable old friend. When my father suddenly became ill and died during the campaign, James took control of the situation, offering to feed animals and open the house - leaving me to spend that precious time with my Dad. This is truly going above and beyond the call of duty.
If you want the best, I highly recommend James and his team to everyone selling their property - you will not be disappointed. Thank you James Read More

Straight shooter, found James to be honest and clear in communication, was a pleasure to deal with as a buyer. Read More
We were reluctant to use any agent to sell our property after a terrible experience in years gone by with a franchise agency that left a very bad taste in our mouth. Clint & Max gave us a team of people, instead of one individual who claimed to know what was right for us. They respected our situation, listened, but gave great advice and read the market very well. We got a wonderful result at auction and are forever converted to independent agents, it is incomparable service. Read More
Very helpful - not too pushy which can be off putting when trying to make your own assessment Read More
Max was extremely reliable and honest in his dealings with all interested parties. He gave good advice on preparing the house for sale. His communication was excellent, he keys up to date and returned all calls. Read More
As a Buyers Agent I felt very comfortable dealing with Maxwell. He is straight to the point, honest and upfront which made the experience rather exciting compared to other experiences i have had with more established agents. Maxwell dealt with us in a very sincere way which made it obvious that he was working for his vendor but on the other hand made the process seamless. Well done Maxwell you are a rising star. WH Read More
Selling can be very stressful but with Max onboard he made it so much easier , not only was he professional but genuinely invested every step of the way with us ,
We sold before auction thanks to all his hard work Read More
This was our first time selling and we are so grateful to have worked with Max. He has a deep understanding of the market and we found his communication especially reassuring. At no point did we feel misled or misinformed, he was honest and genuine throughout and a great negotiator. We knew early in the process that Max was the best agent for us and he surpassed all our lofty expectations! We are very happy with the outcome. If you’re selling in the Eastern Suburbs, you need to call Max Munro. Read More
Highly responsive, very available. Read More
Max is a highly personable and proficient young man. His calm, agreeable demeanour was reassuring within the potentially fraught context of selling a major asset. I particularly appreciated the sensitivity and openness of his communications. I appreciated too his availability and promptness in responding to my phone calls and emails. Ultimately, the process of selling my property was surprisingly angst-free and the final outcome better than I had hoped for. Read More
I recent purchased a property from Max Munro on behalf of my clients. Max is very proactive in letting me know about all the listings his whole office has coming up, and very persistent in making sure we get access prior, and will do whatever is possible to make sure our clients get all the information they need to make a timely decision to secure the property.
This ultimately leads to a very smooth and stress free sale for Max's vendors, and a very good transaction all round. Read More

James lead us through the entire process in a very professional and informed manner. His experience and knowledge of the market positioned us well to achieve the outstanding result we got. Read More
Selling your home can be a stressful experience. However, working with Sam removed a lot of those stresses. He went above and beyond his remit but crucially he had the trust on both sides of the equation, on my side, but also struck up good working relationships with all potential buyers. He is a very genuine person who cares deeply about getting a good result for his clients (which he def did for us). I can't recommend him enough. Read More
