To Whom It May Concern:


In late 2006, we were on the hunt for a unit in the Inner West, it was our first property and we were very green to the whole experience. We were a family of 3 then, had been renting locally with both of us working full time.


When we meet Rosalie Gordon from Planet Properties, we immediately liked her for not onlu being highly professinal and efficient but also always showing genuine interest and easily sharing her wealth of experience and knowledge with us. Within days, we purchased a unit in Marricvilee 'a blank canvas' at a great price which we could renovate affordably. The purchase proceeding were seamless and quick and in no time, we had the keys.


In 2009, we decided to sell our unit and we didn't hesitate in calling Rosalie to get us through the process. This time our situation had changed, we had another child and needed more room. Rosalie exceeded our expectations, we were amazed at the appraisal and when it came time to sell the unit, Rosalie achieved this just 1 open house at the price we wanted. She also recommended a fantastic conveyancer whom performed to the same high standard. The process overall was well communicated and seamless.


I credit Rosalie with that purchase which in just 3 short years became a profitable investment and helped us now purchase a larger home.

Recently, my sister and I had the absolute pleasure to meet and place our home in the expert hand of Real Estate Agents, Mark and Rosalie Gordon. This delightful couple were recommended to us by a friend who spoke very highly of their professionalism and their genuine care in dealing with clients.


We were not dissapointed. Mark and Rosalie were the ultimate professionals. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They kept us fully informed at all times. Communication was a daily occurence. Selling a home is a very stressful experience in life but both Mark and Rosalie put our minds at ease and continually supported us in a positive and reasurring way. We trusted their expertise and were impressed with their extensive knowledge of Sidney's Inner West.


These two wonderful people did everything and more to sell our home. Their passionate approach and quality of service was exemplary. We were thrilled with the sale price of our home and attribute this to two dedicated. and generous agents.


We would be absolutely delighted to recommend Mark and Rosalie to any prospective sellers or buyers.


Your sincerely,

Dear Rosalie,


I am writing to offer my sincere thanks for the way you and Mark Gordon handled the sale of my former home at 49 Albert Street Petersham. Naturally, I am very gratified by the price you achieved, which was well in excess of the reserve.


While I was keen (obviously) to get the best possible price for my home, your record of strong sales was not the only factors that prompted me to seek your services. Four years earlier when I was looking for a home in the Inner West, you were the only agent who seemed remotely interested in assisting me. You took a genuine interest in my needs, to the extent that you would ring to advice me whenever a home being handled handled by another agent entered the market. It's common to hear real estate agents state that they treat all clients with a view to making them "clients for life", but you were the only agent I encountered who was so generous with your time, knowledge, and advice.


When it came to selling my Petersham home, you excelled yourself. You devised a great sales campaign, but also ensured that we were getting "bang for buck". Unlike other agents who we spoke to about handling our sale, you were focused on selling our home, not your brand, so you didn't direct us to spend thousands of dollars on unnecessary advertising. Your strong relationships with journalists in the property sector also meant that our home received excellent editorial coverage, which drew a number of potential buyers to our home.


All of the open homes were conducted seamlessly, and I observed you selling the positive features of the home while also providing potential buyers with honest, transparent advice about the home and its history. You enganged a great auctioneer on the day and managed to attract a large and very active group of bidders. Unlike another agents we interviewed prior to enganging you, you had a clear sense of the how strong demand for our home may be, and you never tried to manage our expectation downwards - you set a high bar for yourself and then exceeded our expectations.


I hope you'll share this letter with potential clients - I can't recommend you highly enough. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with you. Thank you for the wonderful work you did to sell our home.


Your sincerely,


Dr Susan Humphries

To Whom It May Concern


Mark and Rosalie Gordon made the whole process of selling our home easy. From the outset, they helped us organise minor repairs to the property to really boost its sale price potential, by putting us in touch with excellent tradesman who were willing to work to a budget. They also helped us organise property selling, which I am confident helped us boost the sale price in the end. They also helped us, organise hire a storage space for our excess belongings ahead of the move to our new home. Having access to their contacts was invalueable and saved us a lot of time. There were a lot of things we needed to do to get the place ready for market but really had no idea how to tackle -- they made it all easy. When the property was ready to put on the market, they were efficient in organising the photographs and wrote excellents copy of our ad. Once inspections started, they kept us informed every step of the way and made time to show potential buyers through the house outside of normal inspection hours (with our permissions, of course). Most of all, they always answered their phone and emails and never went missing in action -- I really appreciated that, having had trouble in the past with real estate agents who make themselves difficult to contact. We were very happy with the price Mark and Rosalie secured for us and for all the strategy advice they provided. I think had we gone any other way we would have ended up with a lower sale price. I would be happy to recommend them to anyone.

It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial for Rita Gibson of Planet Properties. Rita has been my real estate agent since 2009 and has successfully sold three of my properties, namely, Clovelly and Balmain (2009) and Bondi (2011) in both strong and slow Sydney housing markets.

Rita has proven herself to have a comprehensive knowledge of the real estate market in Sydney providing me with sound advice in terms of the prevailing markets and the positioning of my properties, which has been beneficial in assisting me in making decisions, particularly in difficult market climates.

She has consistently been very professional, charming, and efficient as a real estate agent. I have found her full range of services including the sourcing and management of staging agents, photography and production of sales brochures, videos and billboards, as well as her hassle free management of viewing by potential buyer leading to successful sales time and time again to have been priceless.

I recommend Rita without reserve if you are planning to sell or buy your next property. She is an agent of high integrity, reliability, and professionalism.

I have been a client of Planet Properties for a year and half, with Planet Properties providing property management services for my unit in Croydon, then the sale of that same property in September 05.

During this time it has been a pleasure to deal with Planet Properties. They have provided friendly professional property management services. All maintenance issues were always dealt with promptly and efficiently. Their financial management was efficient and accurate.

When I went on to sell the property, they gave me clear and informative advice. From the advice given, I felt I could make the correct decisions that provided me with the greatest benefit. This was reflected in the prompt sale of the property at a price that I was more than satisfied with. Further, through the sale process, they always kept me informed of all developments to settlement.

I would heartily recommend Planet Properties to any potential client.

We were moving interstate and needed a real estate agent who would give us personal attention, be scrupulously honest and keep us informed. Rita Gibson, Pricipal of Planet Properties exceeded our expectation in all areas.

From our first meeting with Rita, we were impressed by her professionalism, good common sense/down to earth approach, and market knowledge.

Rita found the right tenants for our cottage with an excellent rental return and when we subsequently decided to sell our house, ensured we achieved a very succesful outcome with the minimum of fuss. It was unnecessary for us to travel back from interstate to inspect our property or even attend the auction because the sale process was handled so expertly.

We were also impressed by the consideration Rita showed to our tenants during this period, which not only assisted our tenants but also assisted by us.

We consider ourselves fortunate that Rita managed our property and would not hesitate to call on her again for any future property transactions in Sidney.
