Hi Shagufta,

You have definately done a super job. Your recommendations on de-cluttering helped us a lot by making the apartment look beautiful not only for people visiting for the open house but I liked to live in it myself for the past month or so:). And, it actually cost us nothing. Your patience and persistance has no match, we are sure nobody else would have done a better job and the end result tells the story of your hardwork.

Thanks a lot for making this happen in such a short period of time.

To Dennis & Shagufta

Dennis was professional, honest and true to his word. He kept his promise that was made to help us get into a new home. We would definitely recommend him. He looked after their client very well by selling their property at the price they were looking for quickly

Torben & Kathleen Atterbury

Hi Shagufta,
As Geraldine and I have expressed before, we are delighted with the sale price for our Olive Street property which no doubt was due to the professional effort of yourself and Dennis. The secret to this is keeping us informed of progress, even though we were overseas on holiday.
To bring these thoughts in a more paraphrased fashion I would comment as follows :-
It was comforting to know that we were dealing directly with the people who would be responsible for the marketing and sale of the property and that you kept us fully informed at all times.

Your advice, and then putting into action and supervising the presentation of the property,  inside and out, to ensure it presented in the best way possible to potential purchasers.

Keeping in touch is a virtue which Chambers and Frewin excelled in. One’s house or investment property is a very personal thing. It’s nice to do business with an Agent who understands this.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Chambers and Frewin to friends, family and neighbours in respect to any matters concerning sales, management and Real Estate advise.

Whilst we have no plans to sell our other investment property which Chambers and Frewin manage, we certainly would come back to you should we decide to sell in the future.
Client contact, be it in sales or management, is important, and I can assure you, Shagufta, Dennis and all the staff at Chambers and Frewin have demonstrated this virtu.
By the way. After we saw the Solicitor when the contract was signed Geraldine and I drove to 21 Olive St. and by coincidence met the young couple who are purchasing the house. I’m sure they will be very happy with property.
Hope the above rambling might be of interest.
Cheers…Bob Barron.

To Mitch Pinkerton
When looking for a real estate agent to assist in selling our unit in April, Mitch from First National was the best decision we could have made. Mitch was professional and gave us great advice, but most importantly he was enthusiastic and brought a sense of humour during a very stressful time. We were very impressed with Mitch's experience and professionalism towards not just us as clients, but any potential buyers of our unit. What I appreciated the most was that he was always very realistic with us when we were discussing how to market our unit and what type of price range we could expect, which from our experience is a difficult quality to find in a real estate agent. Mitch went above and beyond to ensure he achieved the best possible price for us and he always remained in contact with us. His strong negotiation skills achieved a sale price for us that far exceeded our expectations. I have no hesitations recommending Mitch to anyone looking to sell - he was an absolute pleasure to work with and he won't let you down!

His professional attitude along with his obvious passion for his job meant that he went above and beyond to ensure that we got the best possible outcome. Marko patiently answered all of our questions and kept us informed of progress at all times. Thanks to Marko's management of the sale, we achieved a much better price for the unit than we ever anticipated'

Enid Foster

To Mitch Pinkerton
Just want to write to you to express my gratitude for your help and assistance for us to get our first home. You have been so helpful and going above and beyond since the open home. Everyone said that one can't trust real estate agents, and you have proved them wrong. Thanks for always being professional, polite, honest and helpful. And thanks for fulfilling all the extra request along the way, from removing the old clothes dryer, providing all the useful contacts, to lending us a spare security door key, and all for free. We have settled in our new place for almost a month now and we can't be more happier with every aspect of the place. Friends can't believe we can get into such a prime yet quiet location with such a bargain price.

Ming Tang

To Marko Djurisic
What a fantastic result! To sell before Auction and for more than $100,000 than we expected, we were truly gob-smacked! We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the whole team at Chambers & Frewin for making our dream come true - relocating to the 'Shire'. You really tried hard for us, perfected the marketing campaign and at the end of the day, your efficiency and confidence made it happen for us! I hope when the day comes for us to sell again, the 'shire' won't be too far for you to travel to, and make our dreams come true once again!

Michelle & Zoran Blazevic

To Mitch Pinkerton
"We chose Mitch to represent us for the sale of our Hornsby unit and would highly recommend him to others. We were pleasantly surprised by the speed and the street record price he achieved. Passionate and always available, able to fit in around our busy schedule from the initial meeting right through to settlement. Thank you Mitchell, for your hard work and attention to detail!"

Lin Zhou

To Mitch Pinkerton
"We would like to thank Mitch Pinkerton for the great job he did helping us purchase the property. Mitch gave us an excellent service and was very friendly and down to earth. He was more than willing to help us with all of our queries, supplied information promptly and ensured that additional requirements that we wanted included in the sale and purchase document were adhered to. He also did not pressure us into any sale and waited for us to make our own decision. We have no hesitation in recommending Mitch Pinkerton to anyone buying or selling their property."

Rin Xia

To Mitch Pinkerton
MITCHELL PINKERTON sold our house at Berowra Waters in May 2014. We found Mitchell to be very professional, courteous and very efficient. He was always available to answer any questions and kept in touch regularly to let us know how our sale was progressing. Mitchell has a very positive attitude and assured us that he could sell our house quickly. Which he did. Found the presentation of brochures, signs etc.... excellent. Mitchell is a young man with high standards and my husband and I have nothing but praise for him. We highly recommend him to anyone who are wanting to sell their home.

Erica & Stephen Cunningham

To Marko Djurisic
I was very pleased with the end result of the sale of my investment property at Hornsby Heights. From the start you were very prompt with the marketing campaign and constantly keeping me informed of the sale process. I have no hesitation in recommending you to my family and friends for any real estate needs in the future. Please pass on my appreciation to your property management team; they have meet me needs for the past 33 years in managing this property with minimal effort on my part. Thank you once again for a quick sale and a great result!

Allan Mason JP

To Mitch Pinkerton
In 1987 Chambers & Frewin sold us our unit. Over the years they have expertly managed it with regular property reviews, maintenance and selection of tenants. We congratulate Dennis Riva and his team on achieving a rapid sale of our unit at an excellent price. This outcome was no doubt achieved due to the renovations that, after discussion, Dennis completely organised. The result was an 'as' new unit. Fabulous!. Your sales skills and technique, Mitchell, were impressive - a contract signed in less than a week of listing. You kept us continually informed of the sale campaign which was expertly planned and managed. The high level of pedestrian traffic passing the unit block due to its ideal location close to the Shopping Centre and Railway Station, selling prices of similar units, open house timing and invitations to investors were some of your considerations. Many thanks. We thank all at Chambers & Frewin First National, Hornsby for a great service over 28 Years.

Phyllis & Geoffrey Fox

To Mitch Pinkerton
When I wanted to sell my unit Mitch Pinkerton was recommended to me. Mitch was very professional in his approach to the sale of the unit. He works in the Hornsby area and had sound knowledge about the area and provided me with an honest opinion about price range and buyer activity. Mitch set realistic goals and worked hard at promoting the sale. He always kept me appraised of potential buyers and the outcome of the open house ventures. He was easily contactable and was more than happy to converse either by phone or email. I would highly recommend Mitch to anyone who was looking to sell property in the Hornsby area. I would feel very confident in using Mitch Pinkerton in any future property transactions.

Catherine Maiden

To Mitch Pinkerton
Mitch's professional and enthusiastic manner in organizing the sale of our property has proven him to be the best agent in Hornsby Shire once again. We had a wonderful experience throughout the selling process and Mitch's bright smile has really taken the stress of selling away. From the first phone call, Mitch had taken us through the planning of selling, explaining the selling process, answering all sorts of questions, preparing the selling material, preparing our property, preparing for the open for inspections, each step had been perfect. Our property was sold on the 1st open for inspection with over an expected price. We were extremely happy with the result. Thank you very much and we would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone considering selling their home.

Jie Fan

To Marko Djurisic
A Great Result! To get me an extra $20,000 was a real shock to me. I was over the moon! You made the sale process so simple for me. You were in constant communication with me and kept me well informed of all the buyers and their offers and worked with me to achieve the best possible price for my unit. I have no hesitation in recommending you and your team at Chambers & Frewin to any of my family and friends who wish to sell their properties too. Also, I would like to express my appreciation to Chambers & Frewin Hornsby for looking after my properties with diligence throughout the many years. The property management team has always provided me with quality service from the beginning. Always professional, friendly service and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you.

Gwen Mortenson

To Mitch Pinkerton
Just reflecting on a busy 12 months and wanted to say thanks again for assisting ,e on the sale of my unit early last year. I don't think I ever gave you a testimonial, so I have attached one now.
"Selling a home can be very stressful on you and your family. Mitch made it appear easy and took the stress out of getting the place ready for sale. It was the sale of my first apartment and Mitch had all the arrangement in place to allow a quick and easy transition into the sale process. We had one open house and the apartment sold for a record street price at the time. You can't get better than that! Sometimes it is easy to overlook the work of a good agent so I am truly grateful that Mitch was my agent and I certainly recommend others to keep Mitch in mind if they are thinking of selling their home."


Ian MacPherson

To Marko Djurisic
I'd like to express my gratitude to Chambers & Frewin First National, specifically Marko Djurisic, for his involvement in handling and facitilating and ultimately, through his experience with successful negotiating, achieving the not only sought after but best possible price fo my property. I value communication with high regard and Marko's demonstration during the sales process of me property didn't disappoint. I was kept informed with every step of the process from preparing the property for sale to presenting the property, the feedback from inspections and most importantly the negotiation process where offers were submitted for consideration. I can't fault my experience that Chambers & Frewin First National demonstrated, by their team lead and contributed by Marko. I have no hesitation with recommending their services and experience to any Vendor that may have their reservations with the valued process of selling their property.Great work, a job well done. I am completely satisfied and cannot thank you enough. I sincerely hope anyone reads this testimonial whilst considering their agent will have the same confidence that I had and was shown with achieving value with the sale of the property, more than just the settlement figure.
With appreciation and recognising due credit.

Percy Lum

To Mitch Pinkerton
Thank you for negotiating the sale of our unit, it was an exceptional result and we were very happy with the price achieved. More than that, we would like to thank you for the courteous and professional manner in which you conducted the sale. It was a very pleasant experience indeed to be kept fully informed of every step in the sale process; it gave us a great deal of confidence in you and your ability to successfully look after ours interests. It is likely that, sometime in the next few years, we will again invest in Real Estate and I would like to assure you that you will be the Agent we call to assist us.. Should the occasion arise, we will be only too happy to recommend you to our friends and acquaintances should they be interested in Real Estate in your area.
