Testimonials

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN


We'd like to recommend Rosalie and Mark Gordon (The Dynamic Duo) to anyone considering selling their property. We knew three others who had used their services and the "Gordons" came highly recommended to us. There was never a question of engaging any other agent.


From initial contact and then right through to our sale both Rosalie and Mark provided consistently high levels of advice, service, promotion, communication and ethical behaviour. We believe them to be the most honest and trustworthy of all real estate agents.


The time and effort they both gave to our sale was extraordinary and we developed a strong personal bond over the very short time it took to sell our unit. They offered after sales advice and generously gave us assistance to purchase our next property, which was above and beyond our signed aggrement. It was a most valuable service and much appreciated.


Don't let glamour agencies turn your head with empty promises.

Rosalie and Mark Gordon are the real deal!


Karin and Phil CANTY

On the recommendation of friends, I engaged Rosalie and Mark Gordon this year to sell my property at Summer Hill.


I received excellent service and sage advice, and was kept in the loop at all times.


I was provided with a comprehensive summary of property movements in my local area and received a very accurate assessment of my property value at the outset.


Although I was selling an entry level property, at no time did I fell that I was receiving a lesser service or consideration than someone selling a higher valued property.


Unfortunately, my experience with the sale of a comparable property through another agency three years prior had made me very attuned to this possibility. However, the Gordons provided undiminished enthusiasm and support throughout the process.


The marketing campaign was slick, perfectly targeted and provided at reasonable cost.


Through the efforts of this dynamic sales duo, we were able to link up with an equally enthusiastic purchaser after the first showing and I was able to sell at the predicted price point.


Not once did I need to telephone to seek updates, nor did I fell that Information was being withheld (again, a sorry reflection of a previous experience).


Rosalie and Mark Gordon are enthusiastic, personable, scrupulously honest and highly skilled realtors. I have absolutely no hesitation on recommending their services to anyone and have thanked the friends who put me into with them many times!

We were first introduced to Mark and Rosalie in 2007 when they sold us our house in Marrickville and back then we were both immediately impressed by their professionalism, attention to detail and overall personable approach.


In fact we were so impressed that when we came to sell the same house 5 years later we were in no doubt as to whom we wanted to manage our campaign.


Both Mark and Rosalie have an extensive knowledge of Marrickville and the Inner West in general and it was this knowledge along with an extensive database of the potential buyers that was instrumental in us achieving a great result.


Their clear approach in proving a reasonable price estimate aligned with our expectations, strong marketing and auction campaign, and unparalled service levels were all instrumental in us selling our property within a week and a half of listing.


Mark and Rosalie are professional, courteous and reliable, good communicators and they delivered a great result on our sale. We highly recommend them to anyone wanting to achieve a great result and work with lovely people to do so.


Noel & Mary

We first found Rosalie and Mark Gordon more than a year ago when we were selling our unit in Dulwich Hill. We were actually intending on managing the sale ourselves but on the first meeting with Rosalie and Mark, they had us won over. They assured us that not only could they sell our unit, but they could get more than we were planning on putting it on the market for ourselves! To make a short story even shorter, they did just that. The sale price was the highest in the history of my block (and the block next door) and to date, proceeding sales haven't been able to achieve it. Their positive and "go-get" attitude, combined with their great personalities, had you believing that this pair is on your side and not just agents, but your friends.


This feeling was reinforced a year later when we were ready to buy again and we contacted Rosalie about a property purchase we were planning on making. This purchase wasn't going to be in Dulwich Hill (or anywhere near the vicinity) so they wouldn't be benefiting from it at all. That didn't stop Rosalie going out of her way to give us much needed advice on how to proceed with the purchase. Rosalie patiently explained the ins and outs of the process and gave us valuable guidance that only someone in the "business" would know. It was never a bother to answer our calls or to reply to an email.


We can both say, without a doubt, that Rosalie and Mark are an absolute pleasure to deal with and we wouldn't hesitate for a minute to recommend them to anyone interested in selling a property. If we were ever to move back into the area, they would be the first people we called.

To Whom It May Concern


Dear Sir/Madam,


We are writing to recommend the professional services of Rosalie Gordon, whom we encountered while seeking to buy a home in 2009. We had asssumed that purchasing a property would be relatively easy. However, appropriate homes were scarce and it soon became apparent that the process of locating a home would be a lenghty one.


The most disheartening aspect of our experience related to the indifference of the real estate agents we encountered. Most agents had no interest in us once it became clear we did not have a property for them to sell prior to making another purchase. Other agents directed our attention to homes that in no way met our specifications. Still others directed us to homes that they drastically under-quoted on (in one instance by $200,000).


Rosalie, however, was an exception. We met Rosalie when she handled a property which we ultimately bid upon at auction. In the lead up to the auction she provided us with a great deal of helpful advice. We also discovered that the reserve she'd set with her vendor was in line with the expectations she'd established with potential buyers like us. While we missed out on this particular house, Rosalie soon established a pattern of notifying us about other potential purchases. We cannot overstate how surprised we were when Rosalie contacted us about properties on the market that were not being handled by her agency. Throughout our entire house-hunt, Rosalie consistently provided us with invalueable advice relating to every aspect of the purchasing process. Without question, Rosalie spent more time discussing our needs with us than any other agent - and I underline this again - even when there was no financial incentive for her to do so.


Rosalie is a rare creature in the world of real estate. She takes a genuine interest in people. Her interest in other complexity transcends a usual business relationship. Rosalie is empathetic, expert and - in our experience - highly trustworthy. We cannot recommend her highly enough.


Your faithfully,


Dr Susan Humphries and Mr Vaugn Lane

Mark and Rosalie made the whole process of selling our property enjoyable. Not only did they both take a very active role in ensuring everything went to plan, they provided consistent advice both to us and all those prospective purchasers who were considering buying our property. Mark and Rosalie genuinely helped us sell our house - something we both appreciated very much. With fair and positive approach that we value highly, Mark and Rosalie were simply tremendous - and they never took more than an hour to respond to any our enquiries. Thank you both for your tireless work. You made it a pleasure!

Honestly, we can't recommend you highly enough.

Dear Rosalie,


Alistair and I would like to sincerely thank you for expertly managing the sale of our apartment in Petersham. We were immediately impressed by your enthusiasm, genuineness and experience, which were backed up with invaluable advice regarding the preparation of our apartment for sale.


At our first meeting with Rosalie, we knew that we had found the property agent we wanted selling our apartment. Rosalie took the time to really go through the process in detail and was honest and transparent at all times in terms of fees and what she thought our property should sell for. She was also very helpful in offering styling and presentation tips for inspection times.


We were very impressed at Rosalie's availability and willingness to open up the property at any time to accommodate buyers and at every stage of the sale process, keeping us updated, often by 8 am or after 6 pm, and was always contactable.


We were extremely happy with both the speed of the sale and the above expectation sale price and would not hesitate in recommending Rosalie to any prospective sellers or buyers.


Thanks and very best wishes,


Alistair and Natasha

It is with pleasure that I write this testimonial for Rosalie and Mark Gordon who delivered an excellent service in the sale of our property.


From the first time we met Rosalie and Mark, we knew that we had chosen the best agents to sell our property. It was indeed a very prompt sale, (just as Rosalie had previously and confident advised it would be) with a pleasing outcome which was above the advertised price.


Throughtout our dealings with Rosalie and Mark, we found them both to be open and friendly, professional and knowledgeable regarding our area, current market trends, the most suitable marketing strategy to use, and keeping us up to date every step of the way, thus making us gell comfortable and at ease.


We wish to thank you both very much for your assistance and guidance in the sale of our property. We also wish to express our gratitude to Rosalie for assisting us with the purchase of our new property on Auction day. This was the second Auction that Rosalie had attended and supported us with.


We Would highly recommend Rosalie and Mark Gordon to any potential buyer and seller as they are experts in their field with professional integrity and real estate agents that you can trust.


Warm regards,


Alexandra Giameos

Dear Rosalie and Mark,


I am writing to thank you for the outstanding and highly professional service you offered in the selling of my apartment in April 2010.


The reason I approached your company Planet Properties, goes back to our previous association when I bought the property through you two years ago. At the time I found your approach warm and friendly and you were incredibly attentive to my request as a purchaser. To arrive on the day and find a bottle of champagne with a kind greeting was incredibly welcoming and reflects the approach you took towards me.


The recent sale of my apartment was made easy due to your thorough knowledge of the property market in the area and also your understanding of my own particular ways of existing within the space.


With you guidance my home was prepared for sale with a minimum of fuss. Your suggestion to place the photos on the web prior to my decided selling date meant that interest was generated over the Easter break when people had more time to search for properties.


The resulting interest of two or more parties was handled in a courteous and respectful manner with you always being conscious of maintaining the best possible outcome for me as a vendor. The resulting purchase price was testament to that professional approach you took.


Finally your ongoing assistance in viewing and reviewing possible properties for me to purchase (through other agents!) was a generosity of spirit that I found overwhelming. As someone who has not lived in Sydney for very long your intimate knowledge of areas, prices and value was particularly valuable to me when I was making choices of where to live and what to buy.


I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to others who are looking to buy or sell a property in Sydney real estate market.


Many thanks again it has been a pleasure to know and work with you.

Warm regards,


Dr Adelle Flood

To Whom It May Concern


We recently placed our house in Stanmore with Planet Properties after speaking to several other local real estate agents. However as family agents who reside in the area we felt Rosalie and Mark from Planet Properties understood the real estate in the Inner West of Sydney and had a true affinity with our very old and beautiful house.


We were not disappointed. We cannot praise enough the professionalism, respect and commitment that Planet Properties showed to us and the prospective purchasers. The marketing plan, which was developed with our input, was excellent and resulted in good attendance at the "open house".


We were initially a little concerned about an auction however with Planet Properties support and knowledge it was a painless procedure. Our house sold for the reserve on the day and we were delighted with the result.


We will be recommending Planet Properties to our friends who need an honest real estate agent and wish Rosalie and Mark all the best for the future. Life would be easier if all agents were as honest and committed as Planet Properties.


With sincere thanks,


John Clark and Barbara Wellesley
