'Not Your Average Agent'
I still remember a time in the early 70's when The Bay was just a little fishing village and the kids rode horseback in the streets and everyone knew you by first name. My family had the original 'Anchorage' Marina on Dutchman’s beach in the early 1970's. It no longer exists but my memories of those times do....I am amazed at the changes that have taken place since then to make it the Tourist hub that it is today.
As a child I have ridden my horses, played, swam and frolicked safely over every entire inch of this beautiful Blue Water Paradise that we are lucky enough to call home.
I started my career in Real Estate when I was only 16, at 18 I was one of the youngest Licensed Real Estate Agents in Sydney, where I had a career in the St George and Sutherland Shires under the guidance of American World Hall of Fame recipient Scott Gibbons, recognised as possibly one of Australia's greatest ever real estate salespeople.
I have personally purchased and sold over 16 properties in my lifetime and have been involved with large developments with my then husband who was a prominent property developer so I know what it feels like to be on both sides of a real estate transaction.
After a break from the industry to have my young son, I worked for a prestigious Advertising company which gave me an insight into the world of marketing and advertising. I returned home to the Bay 19 years ago and resumed my career in Real Estate, driven by a passion to share the beauty of living in Port Stephens with any prospective purchasers and the benefit of my in-depth knowledge in both marketing and real estate to assist Vendors achieve the highest price, as stress free as possible.
I believe, as Agents, we are paid a lot of commission for selling your home and my belief is that we should work very hard to earn it. To me, that means I am on call around the clock. I have a sound knowledge of property and I communicate constantly with both Vendors and Purchasers, all delivered with a BIG smile, mixed with good old fashioned service.
I have been told I am 'not the average agent' and this is a label I am very proud to wear.
“ Bonnie Roosendaal is one of the most "switched on" real estate agents we have ever dealt with. She was very professional, friendly, efficient and quickly sold our property for the right price (and we reside overseas). We highly recommend her. She goes that extra mile! ”
“ The Sales Person you WANT & NEED to sell your property ! - Bonnie recently sold our unique property at One Mile Beach. Bonnie gave us a very realistic property valuation for the current market, I stretched Bonnie to an additional $50,000 on top of that - She got $64,000 on Top...... An outstanding effort ! The difference with Bonnie is she is really very genuine, Very thorough & does not let an opportunity pass to ensure vendor & purchaser are completely satisfied. We had some pretty serious hurdles & objections from the purchaser which could have scuttled the sale, Bonnie was on the case ensuring all requests queries were resolved fast ( I really do believe that Bonnie went beyond what people reasonably expect of an agent). To be truthful I don't believe another agent would have got it over the line for the price. Bonnie Thank You so much for your Hard Work, Dedication, Sincerity & Tenacity. You are the best Agent I have ever dealt with & A GREAT LADY as well. Top Class. ”
“ Her honesty and punctuality were huge selling points, There isn't a bad thing to say about Bonnie. We have since recommended Bonnie to our friends an family !! A rare find these days !! an honest hardworking real estate agent with results that speak for themselves. ”
“ Bonnie approached me on behalf of a buyer and made representations regarding the desire of the purchaser. I was pleasantly surprised when in reality what Bonnie had expressed was not only correct but the buyers were able to purchase the property at the exact price Bonnie indicated after their first inspection. Too often the agent misrepresents the buyers desire to get the listing and then tries to negotiate the vendor down. NOT the case with Bonnie.....promised and then delivered....100% satisfaction on my part. Very professional and prompt in her follow up. Would be a good example that a large number of other agents in Nelson Bay could learn from. Would recommend and use Bonnie again without hesitation. ”
“ Professional with a capital P! It is both a pleasure and privilege to write this review for Bonnie. Firstly she came to me so highly recommended that I was exceedingly suspicious, however not once was I able to fault her. Her knowledge of her area of expertise was sound and convincing and her approach was honest. We worked out a plan of action and all along she accommodated and assisted beyond the merely necessary or perfunctory involvement. In fact no one tried harder or fought harder than her to achieve the goal I had set for myself. At every step when we had literally been engulfed by obstacles she rose up like a Phoenix and expertly re-arranged things and calmed the waters! I have never met a more determined yet utterly caring person to have fighting for me in my corner. To sum up the capital P's stand for PROFESSIONAL, PLEASANT, PERSISTENT, PERFECT. Thank you Bonnie and your excellent team ”
