“ It’s with great pleasure that I am writing this letter of appreciation & thanks for Marlena, who has recently completed a sale for us in Manly. Normally we are advised to consider three things in Real Estate – Position, Position, Position. My personal favourite is one more – people! Marlena has been a wonderful person to talk with. Among the qualities that stand out; Friendly contact Prompt response Regular feedback Empathy with the client & their specific needs Realistic picture & market appraisal, Collaborative approach to sales process Persistent effort to achieve positive outcome. ”
“ Over the last three years, Marlena has been a Property Manager and Sales Agent for our two properties in Manly. In both capacities, she has excelled. Both of these properties demonstrated significant challenges, as they possessed different and unique characteristics. Marlena had to navigate through finding tenants, dealing with a range of tenant issues, and supporting significant renovations. She was also instrumental in providing advice on preparing a property for sale, coordinating this preparation, and conducting the sales campaign. In everything Marlena has done for us, she has impressed us with her knowledge, integrity, commitment, and her huge efforts to ensure positive outcomes for our properties. Marlena is a true professional, highly skilled in her field and committed to success. We would recommend her unreservedly for both her Property Management and Sales skills. I would also like to recommend Raine&Horne generally. This is our second experience with a Raine&Horne agency, the first being interstate. In both cases, we have been more than satisfied with these agencies and the level of services provided. If we were to need to look for another Real Estate agent in any capacity, we would first look to a Raine&Horne. We are please to recommend Marlena Sait and Raine&Horne Manly. ”
“ Thank you so much for helping me through the trauma of selling my Woods Parade unit and with such a splendid result. Everything was explained so clearly from the beginning and you kept me informed of progress all the way along. The photos, advertising & open days were handled so well and I found your professional advice very helpful... All-round I found this Real Estate experience, the tenth, the most pleasant & satisfactory so I congratulate you and your team on a job well done. ”
“ Dear Marlena and Toby, We would like to thank you both for the amazing job you did with the sale of our property. You were professional, friendly, hard working, gave great advice and made sure we were kept up to date throughout the whole process. We couldn't have asked for a better team to work with, the end result was beyond our expectations. Thanks again, Katrina and Brendan Innes ”
“ Hi Marlena, Ferdi and myself were speaking this evening and both agree that even though we have not met you we are very impressed with you and everything you have done regarding our units. This is our only income at the moment and we appreciate how you have handled everything and we just wanted to thank you very much. Kind regards, Catherine and Ferdi Nel ”
“ Dear Marlena, I am writing to sincerely thank you for the outstanding rental figure you achieved for my investment property. Initially we had 3 other agents appraise our property, all of which came in below the range you gave us. Amazingly you achieved $50 per week more than your nearest rival agency. THAT’S $2,600 A YEAR MORE. Not only that, you found a perfect tenant and had them signed to a 12 month lease under one week. We now fully appreciate you explaining to us that the cheapest is not the best. Although your commission was slightly higher than one of your competitors we are still way better off than we would have been if we hadn’t of chosen you and your professional team. Unfortunately, we do not have any other properties for you to manage. If we did, we would have no hesitation in engaging you and your agency to act for us. The greatest reference a person can give is “Would we use Marlena Sait in the future” and the answer to this is “Definitely Yes” Yours sincerely, Clayton Wilson ”
“ Dear Marlena, I would like to give a big thank you to you (Raine & Horne Manly) on providing me with excellent property management services since 2005. Great customer service is hard to see nowadays but you have provided us excellent care in our property from smallest matters to greater issues during these years. Even small properties like mine, your professional attitude and expertise really make my life easier in managing my investment property. For instances, selecting the best tenants, recommending the best market rental value, following up with strata management actions and attending tribunal hearing to achieve the best dispute resolution on my behalf. You always seek my best interest. You always are very quick to respond to my phone calls and emails in relation to my investment property. Your professional care and customer service is definitely encouraging me to recommend you and Raine & Horne Manly to anyone who needs a good quality of property management services. Marlena you have been wonderful to deal with. I certainly would recommend you to anyone who needs a property manager. Sincerely, Rosemary Wu ”
“ Hi Marlena, This is belated thanks for looking after my property from 2009 and 2016. I couldn’t have been happier with the service you provided. Thanks too to the entire R&H Manly team. First class service and people. Andrew Woodward ”
“ I recently utilised the services of Marlena Sait and her team from Raine and Horne, Manly for the re-furbishment and subsequent rental of our apartment. I could not have wished for a better experience. Following our initial contact and meeting, Marlena provided prompt and sound advice on the refurbishment of the apartment and arranged for the services to be carried out in a cost effective and efficient manner. The marketing of the property was most professional and the target rental was achieved. I found Marlena and Kelly Tim from her team to be highly motivated and proactive in all of our dealings. Communication was excellent and I was kept informed of progress at all times. It is a delight to work with a professional, competent, honest and highly motivated group of people who are most attentive to their client's needs. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Marlena and her team from Raine and Horne, Manly to any property owner. ”
“ Professional, knowledgeable, and of the highest integrity! Marlena has been our personal real estate agent for the last ten years. In that time, she has managed three rental properties for us and sold two properties. This has included selecting and managing tenants, supporting various and sometimes complex maintenance/renovation projects, and preparing and implementing sales campaigns. Each of these properties has been very different, and each has had its own set of challenges. In everything Marlena has done for us, she has impressed us with her knowledge, integrity, commitment, and hard work. She has provided us with consistently accurate and honest advice, and as a result, our properties have been well maintained and well managed, and have achieved their maximum potential. Marlena is a true professional, highly skilled in her field and committed to success. We will certainly engage Marlena again for our future real estate activity, and we give her our highest endorsement. Yours sincerely ”
“ Delivered exactly what was promised! Raine & Horne Manly recently sold one of our investment properties after managing it for over 12 years. Firstly, Marlena Sait and her team are amazing managing agents. We have never had a bad tenant in any of our properties and the rents have always been paid on time. As an added bonus, Marlena's network of tradesman for repairs and maintenance have always carried out great work at competitive pricing. I would have no hesitation in recommending Raine & Horne Manly as managing agents. As a sales agent, Toby Hutton talked the talk and fully backed it up with a very professional team. Not once did Toby set any unrealistic expectations or attempt to back away from original promises. Toby kept us informed two to three times a week with open for inspection results and potential purchaser questions. And come auction day, everything went exactly to plan as the hammer fell right within the price bracket we 'ideally hoped' to achieve. In a business world where customer service seems to have taken a back seat due to to undercut pricing, it was very refreshing to see that Raine & Horne Manly continued to put their customer first, while maintaining a very competitive pricing strategy. I could not be more satisfied! Thank you Raine & Horne Manly. ”
“ Hi Marlena and Toby, Paul and I just wanted firstly to thank you and secondly to congratulate you both on an outstanding result with the sale of our apartment on Saturday. In a current tough, and often spotted market, taking the property to auction was perhaps risky – with clearance rates so low - but the result speaks for itself. Selling for way over the reserve, and I think well over both our expectations, it just shows how a well executed plan can reap the rewards. Another successful result for us all. Now to finding our next purchase!!!!! Kindest regards, Lucy and Paul xx ”
