RE: Sale of 157/538 Little Lonsdale Street

I could not be happier with yourself and Galldon Real Estate. I am particularly impressed with your professionalism and your willingness to go that extra mile. Your advice has always been sound and I am grateful for your assistance in preparing the property and of course in expediting the sale.

My first dealings with the firm were in November 2006 when I originally purchased the Little Lonsdale Street property. My spouse and I had looked around extensively for a suitable investment opportunity and finally  found what we wanted. We were very happy with the sale process at the time which happened seamlessly without a hitch thanks to the efforts of the real estate agent. When an offer was made to take on the management of the property on our behalf, we jumped at the opportunity and we have not been disappointed. The advice provided to us along the way has been first class and the transition into rental occurred once again without issue. Within a couple of weeks of settlement  the property was providing rental income. For nearly 7 years the property has been managed by the Galldon people. I have always found them both helpful and proactive which has resulted in the property remaining  occupied for nearly the entire period. When the lease of the last tenant expired we engaged in a discussion and sort advice from Galldon as to the appropriate next step. In consultation, we came to the conclusion that it was time to sell the property and  we were very happy to engage Galldon Real Estate to prosecute the sale.

The property needed to be refreshed prior to sale and Michael took on this task and was able to organize carpet, curtains, painting and cleaning, providing alternate quotes and project managing the entire process to a speedy conclusion. Following on from this, the sales campaign began and was conduct very professionally with little fuss. Potential buyers were quickly identified and the property was sold for the original asking price within 3 weeks, a great result. I have no hesitation in providing Michael and his team the highest recommendation.
