“ I would like to express my appreciation for the amazing job you did in the sale of our property in Balgowlah. Over the years we had several appraisals when toying with the idea of selling, however the options and values never really matched our expectations. You were the only agent to think outside the square and came up with a great option which we then followed through with. Being the family home it is quite an emotive undertaking, but we needn’t have worried. You made the whole process smooth and easy and far exceeded our expectations with the end result. Thanks again Geoff, I will strongly recommend your services to all of my friends. ”
“ We used Geoff to sell our house in North Curl Curl. This selection was based on several personal recommendations. We are happy to say those recommendations were validated and came up with a good quality marketing plan, clear advice on price expectation, active contact with us in respect of offers during the marketing campaign and handled the auction itself very professionally. All of this happened while we were living in China. We have no hesitation in recommending Geoff Pickering to any other prospective vendor in the area. ”
“ We selected Geoff to handle the sale of our apartment as he had recently managed the tenant application and selection process for our rental property in Freshwater. For the apartment sale Geoff provided us with a market appraisal, selling advice and a sales & marketing strategy that resulted in the sale of our apartment in just 3 days. We were very happy with the result and the service he provided, he called us almost everyday to provide updates of our sale and we ultimately felt that the sale of our property was as important to Geoff as it was to us. We are confident his negotiation skills and knowledge of the market led to a strong result. Geoff was easy to communicate with and we would not hesitate recommending him to other sellers. ”
“ Thanks again for the effort put in selling our house. The expert advice and service we received from you and your team was outstanding, and the price obtained was well above expectations. We would recommend you without hesitation to any of our friends thinking of selling their home. Our thanks again to you and your team. ”
“ Well, what can we say about Geoff Pickering. A lot. I had left Sydney for more than 40 years and was faced with the onerous task with my son Sam of dealing with my late father's estate and his long held Curl Curl property. We had limited knowledge of the Northern Beaches property market and were wary of slick, fast real estate agents. On the only occasion I was in Sydney after my father's passing, we interviewed three real estate agents. Geoff being the last and leaving us with the firm impression that he was a good communicator and competent to deal with our real estate transaction and achieve the desired sale. His persistence, advice and attention to our requests resulted in Geoff being given our listing to auction our property. As we were not in Sydney, we requested that all communication between us was to be by email only. In this regard, Geoff never failed us, always promptly responding to our emails and providing us with regular updated critical information. His communication skills ultimately leading to the successful sale of the property at auction. Geoff's network of local contacts facilitated a smooth path to presentation for the day of the auction and post sale cleanup. Although Geoff was more than capable of supplying endless supporting property statistics, we viewed his main credential was his personal people skills in dealing with us and potential buyers. Geoff did not stop working to achieve the sale. Geoff was the man on the ground who got the job done. All's well that ends well and in our experience we would have no hesitation in recommending Geoff Pickering for your real estate sale. Geoff is the Curly go to man. ”
“ Recently I decided to sell my unit in Fairlight, I chose Geoff to represent me as he had handled other real estate matters for me in the past and I found him very easy to deal with. Geoff’s expertise and knowledge in knowing the best way to sell the property was excellent which in turn resulted in a hassle free sale. The price we received was quite a bit higher than I expected, thanks to Geoff’s negotiating skills. Geoff’s commitment and sense of responsibility towards, not only to myself as the vendor, but also to the other parties who were interested in purchasing my property is highly commendable. He sold the property in 16 days prior to the Auction for a figure we were most happy with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Geoff to anybody interested in buying or selling their home. ”
“ Over the past 20 years we have used Geoff Pickering as our real estate agent and the service and results we have received have always been outstanding. However, our latest sale, our family home of 17 years, far exceeded our expectations on both speed and price. Geoff and the team sold our property in five days and for a figure significantly more than we were hoping for. All aspects of our sale was exceptional - from organising the photos, advertising, signage, collateral to the open home and communication with buyers and ourselves. Geoff’s professionalism, knowledge, expertise and communications about all things real estate on the northern beaches is exceptional and be it buying, selling or managing a property, Geoff is who we would recommend every time. ”
