Paul Milkovic Testimonials

15 Tripod Street, CONCORD

A true gentleman

Being the buyers of the property we were always aware that Paul was ultimately working for the vendors but through all our dealings with Paul he has been incredibly open and honest from the start. Paul is a true gentleman and I for one cannot speak highly enough of him. Whether you are selling or looking to buy you could not ask for a more friendly, honest and professional person to be working with you and we would not hesitate in using Paul for any future house purchase or sale. Thank you for everything.

Extremely efficient and effective

I would not think twice about rating Paul. He was extremely realistic from the get go and set realistic expectations. On a weekly basis he communicated with me to inform me on trends re: interest in my property. This is extremely important as it puts any vendor at ease to know what is going on in. He provided me with reports which substantiated quality assurance. The outcome of my sale was brilliant and it happened much sooner than anticipated. All in all a 5 star job from a professional and an all round nice guy on a personal level.

An Excellent Agent

Paul Milkovic was extremely knowledgable, committed and enthusiastic as the agent selling my Dad's property. He reported on developments regularly and fully. I would highly recommend him.

Mr Paul Milkovic

I have resided at Bayard Street for over 20 years, due to my age and ongoing health problems I found it necessary to look at a retirement village. The waiting list is long and complicated.....However I had been introduced to Mr Paul Milkovic through a good friend who had business dealings with Paul and R & H at Concord. The service the understanding and the degree of genuine concern with my situation was truly emotional at this stage of my life. Paul walked and talked me through the process, and for that I cannot thank him and the staff at R & H Concord highly enough. I am a single man in my eighties with no next of kin and in poor health the care and understanding and the professional assistance was as if he was a member of my family. Obviously I am sad to be selling up, but life has to go on, and for the part Paul and his team played was excellent. I am more than happy to recommend Paul Milkovic and his team to any prospective seller or buyer. Robert (Bob) Wilson.

Appreciation

I made an enquiry on a property that was marketed by Raine & Horne Real Estate Concord and accepted Paul Milkovic's invitation for my wife and I to inspect the property. We found Paul to be a true professional in his approach to us as the prospective purchasers and at the same time his professional obligation to the vendor. We cannot express enough the high regard that we hold for Paul, we can only hope that we can show our appreciation by conducting further business with Paul and his company.

Dream Purchase

Paul was an absolute pleasure to deal with from the get go. He was honest, open and transparent throughout the entire process and at no point were we ever made to feel as 'just another transaction' or pressured. His can do attitude and trustworthy nature really shine through and my fiancée and I both believe that he lives the Raine and Horne ethos and values to the fullest and is a testament to the real estate industry. We would also like to take this opportunity to personally thank Paul for his support during what is a very emotional and somewhat stressful process.

Subject: Expressing our gratitude

 Hi Paul and Silvia,

We would like to take this time to say how grateful we are to the both of you.

Being overseas we felt totally informed throughout the entire process of selling our home. You have kept your promise in ultimate customer service and at all times we felt confident and safe in our choice with you both.

James and I will be highly recommending Raine and Horne Concord and especially Paul and Silvia for their professionalism when dealing with a difficult situation.

Many Thanks,

Rhonda and James.

Dear Paul and Silvia,

This letter is to say how impressed myself and Alanna are with you both and Raine & Horne Concord as well. You sold our house at 10 Correys Square, Cabarita in less than 5 days for a record price in the Edgewood complex at the asking price of $1,499,000 we wanted as well. I will have you both sell our houses again and will highly recommend you to anyone that is buying or selling their house. 

Best regards,

Address: 1c Wellbank Street, Concord

On behalf of my sister Lyn and brother Mark, I would like to thank Paul MILKOVIC and Silvia Sbuelz from Raine and Horne Concord for the successful selling of our late father's property at 1c Welllbank Street, Concord on the 30 June, 2012.  We found Paul and Silvia to be a helpful and caring real estate agent.

 We felt comfortable in their presence and considered their selling approach to be sincere, non aggressive and of a high standard.

The auction on the day went extremely well and we were happy with how the whole process had been explained to us previously in a concise fashion.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Paul MILKOVIC and Silvia SBUELZ to any person who was considering selling their property now or in the future.

A huge thank you to Raine and Horne Concord and especially Paul Milkovic and Silvia Sbuelz for all their help and advice in purchasing our Concord property.

We knew what we were after and Paul made the process very smooth, addressing all our email queries promptly, access to inspect the property made easy and assisting us with any questions we had along the way.

His professionalism and friendly approach made it a really enjoyable and exciting purchase for us!"

Thank you. Joe and Olivia Figliuzzi

Eve & Doug Sharp

Address: 15 Arthur Street, Concord

We decided to go with Raine & Horne to sell our house, as we had been talking with Paul Milkovic about our moving plans on prior occasions, over the past two years, as Paul had sold a few homes in our street in Concord.

Paul kept us up to date, either through emails, or phone calls, after each Open for Inspection, and with everything that was going on throughout the 4 months that we had our home on the market.

If we had any questions, Paul was always there to answer them very promptly - sometimes even on his day off!

We felt very much at ease with their professionalism and work ethics, and this was evident in the price they obtained for our home, which my husband and I were more than happy with.

We found Paul, Silvia and Dibs, to be very friendly, helpful & sincere throughout the whole exercise, as this was the first time that we have had to go through the selling process. 

They were all very patient with us too, which made us feel very comfortable.
We would not hesitate in recommending Raine & Horne to be your Agent, whether you were buying or selling your home.

Address: 15 Arthur St, Concord

We recently purchased 15 Arthur St Concord through the Raine & Horne Concord office.

My wife and I had been looking for some time to locate the right type of property for us as we have a young family and our current residence is no longer practical as it is a multi-level dwelling.

We came upon the Arthur St residence the weekend before Christmas 2011 which was a busy time for all concerned. The Raine & Horne Concord office arranged for my wife to view the house with our children at a convenient time and then for myself the next day.

I found Paul Milkovic and Silvia Sbuelz to be well informed about the property's history, in particular recent developments that had been undertaken.

Paul adequately conveyed the vendor's expectations as well as any potential points of negotiation regarding certain features and nuances of the property.

A few weeks after we had exchanged contracts Paul and Silvia arranged for us to meet the vendors at the property.

This was a wonderful opportunity for them to walk us through the house and for us to actually see what amount and type of storage was available, how the air conditioning and security systems functioned, as well as external lighting and water features.

The vendor's attitude throughout was positive and we cannot help but feel that this in a large part due to the way that Raine & Horne Concord had managed their listing.

We purchased the property for our family through Paul and Silvia; we have no hesitation in referring prospective buyers or sellers to Raine & Horne Concord.

Hi Silvia,
 
We recently purchased 18 Hill Street Wareemba through Raine & Horne Concord. We had the majority of our contact with Paul Milkovic.
 
Paul was accommodating, helpful, and always available to answer questions. I believe the genuine relationship we had with Paul played a
significant role in our successful purchase of the property.

I first meet Paul in 1998.

It was not until 2000 that I got to know Paul as a highly professional sales person. At the time I was looking to buy a house and it was his astuteness and extensive knowledge of the local area that enabled me to buy a property with great potential.

The personal service and attention I received was exceptional. He made sure that I received the best purchase value for the house I was buying.

Between 2000 and 2012, I conversed with Paul, on a number of occasions, regarding the market and in particular my property. I was very impressed, in all my discussions with Paul, of his knowledge and understanding of the changing property market and his understanding of the area in which he was responsible for purchasing and selling properties.

In 2012 I decided to put both my properties on the market. It was during the weeks that followed
that I saw what an exceptional person and sales person he is, along with his Buyer's Specialist Silvia Sbuelz.

In a very short time the advertising campaign for the first house was organised. The property was given the maximum amount of exposure to the largest possible audience. It was their knowledge of the location and style of house that enabled them to target the right audience to sell my property at the best possible price.

In the build up to the auction, I was constantly informed of the progress of each of the inspections and any offers that were made. Their commitment and ongoing confidence of obtaining the market value was reassuring and satisfying.

On the day of the auction, they worked tirelessly with all parties interested in purchasing the house in order to get the best possible price. I was very pleased and satisfied with the price the house went for. Their people and negotiation skills are outstanding.

During the entire process I felt that I was in charge of the process and not just being told what was in my best interest. Paul's and Silvia's appraisal of the house was 'spot on'.

The advertising and sale of the second house followed very quickly. Their approach to this sale was exactly the same as with my first house. They have limitless energy to their work which indicates the dedication and professionalism they have for what they do.

Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I have no hesitation in recommending Paul and Silvia as a highly valued, respected and trusting property agents.

A very big thank you Paul and Silvia for all that you did in the sale of my properties. Your time and effort is greatly appreciated.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul Milkovic on the sale of our home.  At all times Paul and the staff of Raine & Horne conducted themselves with utmost professionalism and integrity.

We were auction novices and Paul was most understanding of our concerns and led us step by step through the process which made us feel very comfortable.

Throughout the campaign Paul and his team kept us informed of the progress and feedback which we found most helpful in our decision making.

We would highly recommend Raine & Horne Concord and in particular Paul Milkovic and his team  to any prospective client.

Greg and Michelle Bain

Dear Paul

Greg and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for all of your assistance in the recent sale of our property in Cabarita.

We were grateful that you were so proactive in keeping us up to date on the progress of the campaign and your response times when we left messages was fast.  One of the reasons we appointed you as our agent was we liked your down-to-earth approach and that was also borne out for the duration of the sales campaign.   You were a delight to deal with and we assume that potential purchasers would have said the same.  It was very clear throughout the campaign that you worked hard at maximising the interest in our property, which was demonstrated by the fact that we had over 100 parties through our property during the campaign. Thanks also for managing to get us a feature article in the Inner West Courier. We appreciate all the work you did in following up on all potential purchasers prior to action.

We were happy with the result we achieved at auction.  We know that this result was largely obtained due to your diligence, professionalism and expertise in the sales process.

Greg and I would not hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends and family who are selling in the Cabarita I Concord area and, in fact, we have already done so.  Further, we would also be happy to act as a referee if you have any potential clients who would like a second opinion before appointing you.

We wish you all the best in the future. Kind regards

We had been l ooking for a property for our daughter for several months. When we found  this property, Paul could not have been more helpful and could not have made things any easier.

We inspected  the property on a Saturday. (It had only been on the market for about 24 hours). By Monday we had paid a deposit and exchanged. Paul was in contact with us over the weekend and had provided us with updates.

We first met Paul several years ago and have refened others to hiln because he is honest, help:fhl and trustworthy. He goes that extra mile for his customers.

Thank you Paul

Dear Paul,

We would like to thank you and your staff for handling the sale of our property in Cumming Avenue in June, and the assistance in the purchase of our apatiment at Wentworth Point.

After over 43 years it was a heari wrenching decision  to sell, however circumstances  with health and the fact that our home had become to big for two people we faced what we thought was an impossible  outcome to satisfy our needs. 

You were very considerate and tmdcrstanding, you gave us your time in making a decision, there was no rush or pressure, you do not know how much that meant to us, as emotionally we were drained. 

You exceeded our expectations with the price on the day, we now live in a beautiful three bedroom apartment overlooking the warer with all the amenities we had at "home" and our quality of life is improving without the maintenance of a big home.

Paul , we still miss our "home" but our new home is becoming and is a new chapter in our lives we do not regret. I would like you to know that you also have become part of our lives, and we sincerely thank you for all your courtesy, help and most of all your genuine understanding  of our emotional decision. 

We are still settling in but as each day goes past we appreciate what we had and what we have now, again thank you.

It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial in regards to our dealings with Raine and Horne Concord especially Silvia Sbuelz and Paul Milkovic.

We have been searching for a property for a long period and in this time have dealt with the majority of the staff at the concord office.

They all showed professional and respectful attributes in our dealings with them. 

For the purchase of the property we dealt with Silvia and Paul. 

Our dealings with them were professional and they were very helpful with all aspects of the purchase. 

Their expertise in the real estate market came through in our meetings making us feel comfortable in all dealing with them 

It was a great relief knowing my husband was dealing with Silvia and Paul, as I had to go overseas throughout the purchase of the property. 

Silvia was proficient and competent in all aspects of the purchase and dealing with her was a total pleasure, her personality was honest and frank and we were made to feel reassured at all times. 

I would recommend Silvia and Paul to anyone wanting to purchase a property and would like to thank them sincerely for the way in which they made the whole process easy to deal with

Thank you

Dear Paul and Silvia,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team at Raine and Horne Concord for the seamless sales auction program that you conducted for my house at 51 Cormiston Ave Concord.

As you know I originally purchased the house through your office. It was the relationship that we developed at that time that made the decision to also sell through you an easy one.

From our initial meeting through your recommendation about who should dress the house, the level of communication after each open and the auction day itself, every person from your firm conducted themselves with utmost professionalism. I have to add that the price that you obtained for me at auction far exceeded my expectations.

I will have no hesitation in recommending Raine & Horne Concord to friends and family whom are considering selling their home.

Regards,

Peter Hunt

Hi Silvia,

Many thanks to both you and Paul Milkovic for the utmost professionalism in the purchase of the abovementioned property for my daughter Natalie and her husband Lachlan Coles.  The purchase was a very smooth process with no stress whatsoever and the negotiations done between agent and solicitor as well as ourselves were very agreeable and was made all the more easy by Paul's expert knowledge of the real estate market.  

We cannot thank Paul and yourself for a job well done for Natalie and Lachlan in the purchase of their first family home together.  You were both behind them every step of the way in your encouragement and made every opportunity available to answer any questions and make yourself available for additional inspections that helped secure the property for them.   I am sure they will be very happy at their Concord West home for many years to come.    Thanks again Kind regards

Address: 10 Correys Square, Cabarita

Hi Silvia & Paul,

Now that we have exchanged on the property at 10 Correys Square, Cabarita, (named ‘Zanzibar’) we would like to thank you both for your support during, what for us, has been a stressful time . This is the first time we have ‘sold’ before we’ bought’. We thought it the prudent thing to do in today’s market. However it is still stressful – especially with the prospect of moving twice should we need to rent short term!

So your understanding of our situation, and guidance in the actual buying process, was very much appreciated.

We needed time to complete our due diligence checks on ‘Zanzibar’ and advice about the best way to put down the deposit (as it seemed we may not be able to access the deposit funds put down by the buyer of our own home in Mosman back on the 22 March 2013).

As we had been looking at properties for some months (to get an idea of ‘what we can get for what price’ in the different Sydney localities ‘of interest to us’) and having found 10 Correys Square as ‘the next place for us’, we didn’t want to risk losing it by not proceeding with due haste and meeting the reasonable expectations of the vendor - after having our (conditional) offer accepted. Your help in this regard was both necessary and appreciated-notwithstanding the support we also received from both our solicitor and financial advisor.

So while it is true that ‘buying’ today is ‘easier’ (most properties can be ‘virtually’ inspected on the internet), we found that the apparent choice is so big as to be daunting and , further, that an actual inspection can give a different ‘first impression’ to that perceived by what we had seen or read about it. So we still had to get out and about a lot.

Moreover the classic phrase ‘caveat emptor’ is even more poignant in today’s litigious society, the  disclaimers that building/ pest inspection reports now contain are such as to be nearly laughable and the sale contract ‘tome’ is reading only for those with insomnia or solicitors! So dealing in property is not for the fainted hearted! 

You deal in property daily whereas we do so once in a ‘blue moon’. We needed a helping hand. You provided it while acting in good faith on behalf of the vendor.

Well done indeed! 

Regards,

Gail Park & Kevin Toohill

Hi Silvia & Paul,

Thank you for your congratulatory message.

All I can say is the following in regard to the sale of my property.

I chose Raine & Horne Concord to sell my property at 39/1 Corby Ave Concord, above other agents as they have served the local community for over 20 years and have a good reputation and record for sales in the area.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank both Paul Milkovic and Silvia Sbuelz for the work they put in to obtain the outcome I desired. A seamless operation from our first meeting, keeping me informed every step of the way to the Auction which I couldn't attend but they arranged a phone hookup so I could hear the outcome.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Raine & Horne Concord to anyone considering selling their property.

Regards,
