Recent Customer Reviews for Raine & Horne - Manly

    I had 6 agents give an appraisal on my home & this agent stood out with his honesty & caring attitude. His commission was very competitive & he was reassuring during the campaign that he would achieve an excellent price. Also this agent recommended various tradespeople to prepare the house for sale & they all came out promptly & carried out the jobs with a minimal of fuss. Without that help, I think it would have taken months.

    To whom it may concern, At a time when the economic climate was at an all time low, and the Real Estate market was flat, this agent , (with the support of the team at Raine&Horne Manly), sold the above two bedroom unit for well over $100,000 more than any other agent in the area even considered listing it for. Whilst looking for the best agent to sell this property we were assured that the best price we could hope for would be $800,000. Similar sized units were selling in the high $700,000’s. this agent sold our property for $930,000! He achieved this outstanding result, (and in just a few weeks which included the Christmas and New Year holiday time), because he believed in the ‘true’ value of the property, (regardless of the current market), and he believed also in his own ability to sell it at this value – and obtain the figure he placed on it’s worth. this agent is a confident and motivated salesman, and yet a genuine and caring human being at the same time. He is able to see that any property for sale is more than just a dwelling to the right purchaser who is often also seeking views, lifestyle, convenience to shops, being close to transport, schools, etc., and that it is these ‘ more than’ factors people are willing to pay for, (often top dollar), even when the figure he is asking is well over the current market value. From when we first appointed this agent to sell our property he maintained professional integrity, energy and enthusiasm throughout the entire sales process, never wavering from the commitment he made to us from the beginning to obtain the figure he believed he could get for us, which he did through steer hard work – to our complete satisfaction and delight. I would not hesitate to recommend.

    Dear this agent , Thank you for your very professional involvement in the sale of my apartment at 1/13 Stuart Street, Manly in March 2012. I gave some challenging instructions that required maximum exposure for the property, minimum cost to me, and yet a quick sale! Unlike many agents, you listened carefully and took a leadership role to produce an outstanding, effective sales and marketing plan. The result was an amazing quick sale and settlement, in a somewhat tough market for the seller. The success would not have been achieved without your own, specific individual initiative. The key points are that: 1) you really did focus on my needs 2) put your own needs in second place. I’m happy to share my experience with any of your potential clients. My contact details are shown below With thanks David Raphael 02 9400 2461 Email: draphael@rems.net.au
    Review by David Raphael for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    To Whom It May Concern I recently engaged this agent as my real estate agent in the sale of my Fairlight property and I highly recommend this agent to anyone seeking the services of a real estate agent. this agent delivers maximum results for the vendor. He uses his sound market knowledge to develop a solid understanding of the value of the property and optimally position it against other properties for sale. His strong yet personable negotiation skills enable him to uphold property prices with aggressive buyers seeking to push prices down in the current tough buyer’s market. As the owner of his business this agent delivers service to engender customer satisfaction, referrals and repeat business. It was great to work with an agent who was not seeking an easy, quick sale at the expense of my profit. On occasions where difficulties arose on my side, this agent ’s service went beyond his direct responsibility and he happily took on extra tasks and provided contacts, expertise and advice to help facilitate the sale. this agent and his team worked consistently hard to achieve a top dollar sale. My property had some negative aspects, however this agent was able to articulate the entire value proposition of the property including explaining the negatives so the buyer felt informed and comfortable. His strong negotiation skills translated into the best possible sale price. this agent is pleasant, efficient and easy to work with. He operates with integrity and is a reliable communicator, treating all involved respectfully. And the bottom line is that this agent achieved a sale price $50K above what one agent from a mainstream agency valued the property at and $20K above the other two agents I considered – so he kind of paid for himself! Without hesitation I recommend this agent and his team. It you want any further information you can call me on my number listed below.

    Review by Anita Currie for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    this agent and the team at Raine and Horne delivered a fantastic outcome for me on the sale of an investment property in Manly. The apartment sold privately at the top of the price range, despite difficult property market conditions and a limited marketing campaign. Through several months of negotiations, this agent remained patient and never stepped back from his view on value or pressured me into accepting a lower offer. this agent provided sound advice throughout the whole process and was a pleasure to deal with – very professional, straight forward and direct. I would have no hesitation in recommending this agent and the team to others. Kinds Regards Andrew Defina

    this agent , you delivered on your promise where other agents failed. I will have great pleasure in recommending your services to friends and family, I already have! Your “professionalism” throughout the purchase and the sale of the property are a credit to you and the Raine and Horne team. Again many, many thanks! Ashley Hood. ashley.hood@blueribbonmines.com.au
    Review by Ashley Hood for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    Hi this agent , We signed the contract today! Thanks for all the great work you have done for us this agent . Not only has your agency managed our rental properties flawlessly this past year, you managed the recent sale of our Northern Beaches property with absolute class. I honestly could not sing your praises higher this agent . The only way to describe your style is that you're not a real real estate agent! You can't be! You don't play games, you are open and upfront the entire way through, you don't play poker, you consult, you are quick to respond, you listen, all the while whilst respecting the buyers which was so important to us as we've been on the buying end before. Your initial valuation was slightly below what we actually got and I do not believe that was just luck; you managed those offers superbly. I would never put my name to something that I didn't believe in. After your efforts, you can give your clients my number! I'm that confident in recommending your abilities. Thanks for changing our lives mate, you truly deserve all the success that comes your way. Kind Regards, Brett & Amanda Clemenson
    Review by Brett & Amanda Clemenson for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    To whom it may concern, Just a short note to thank you and your team for the professional and efficient manner in which you dealt with the sale of our unit in Dee Why. I was consequently very pleased to receive an acceptable offer on the unit barely a week into listing with this agent and the Raine and Horne team. The excellent outcome of the transaction was surely due to your professional, courteous, optimistic and positive approach and your knowledge of the Northern Beaches market. From the initial appraisal to the signing of the contract has been of the highest order. Kind regards, Pamela Kinnane
    Review by Pamela Kinnane for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    To whom it may concern, My sister Gloria and I were extremely impressed with the way this agent managed the sale of our property at “Pembroke” 7/20 Bonner Avenue, Manly. We originally asked three agents to appraise our property and subsequently chose this agent and his team. He suggested conducting open house inspections on Saturdays and Sundays and also made appointments outside the allotted open for inspections for potential buyers that were restricted with time. The marketing of the property was extremely professional and successful. The stylists that were appointed to decorate the unit really did it credit and the tradesmen that this agent organised on our behalf worked efficiently with good results, thanks to this agent ’s sound advice. We have no doubt that the outstanding auction result ($300,000.00 above the reserve price!) was due to the professionalism of this agent and his team. We got the optimum result that we were looking for and this agent was always confident about the sale price we would get. Thank you to this agent and the team at Raine & Horne Manly. Gloria and myself highly recommend this agent to do the job with the professionalism that you would expect from an agent who is looking after your greatest investment. Yours Sincerely, Lorraine Saric

    Review by Mark and Pam Cassell for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    Dear this agent and Team,After your sale of our previous property, I was thankful you agreed to sell our current house for us. Your commitment, support and professionalism throughout the campaign is sincerely appreciated, and we are ecstatic with the result of our recent sale - can’t wait to do it all again. I cannot praise you enough on your negotiating skills, and calm words of advice (at a time where I tend not to be so “calm”). You exceeded our expectations and there will be no hesitations engaging you as our agent in future, and I would thoroughly recommend you to anyone thinking of selling in the area. Many Thanks Jess Canabou
    Review by Jess Canabou for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    Hi this agent , Having purchased and rented multiple properties though this agent of Raine & Horne Manly, I recently appointed this agent to sell my property in Fairlight. Both my wife and I could not be happier with the result that was achieved as well as the professional and empathetic way in which this agent supported and managed us throughout. At the start of the process the advice and consultation could not have been better and all times throughout the process we were kept up to date with progress, advised on next steps and briefed against original expectations. The day of auction was handled incredibly well, with this agent giving personal and professional support that was always consultative and addressed a fine line between our wishes and this agent ’s recommendations and professional experience. I highly recommend this agent and the team at Raine & Horne Manly, including Mark, Steph and Marlena for any property transaction, from purchase to rent and sale. They truly are professional and personal in their support. I am willing to give personal references by telephone through Raine & Horne, Manly. Thanks and regards Warren Green
    Review by Warren Green for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    Dear this agent I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work and guidance in selling my parent’s home. As you know, I had previous experience with Raine and Horne Manly as the letting agents for the property. Working with your team was a very positive experience and after meeting with you, I had every confidence that you would run a very professional campaign for us. It was most helpful for us to have your input and access to your team of trades people so that we could make some repairs to the property and present the house in the best possible light. Throughout the campaign I felt that you maintained a high level of communication with us. I also appreciated your advice on aspects of the auction process which can be a little daunting for the inexperienced. Needless to say, my sisters and I were thrilled with the auction outcome which exceeded our expectations. I would be more than happy to recommend your services to anyone seeking an agent. Kind regards Penny Bulgin
    Review by Penny Bulgin for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    Dear this agent , The entire sales process that you and Rowan undertook on our behalf didn’t miss a beat; the pre-auction selling activity was quite impressive, and gave us a very satisfactory result. We were led to appointing your firm as out agents because of the excellent service from Rowan and Nicole when the property had been leased through their office. Rowan’s proposal to appoint your office, with his continuing involvement, has proved to be the right way for us to go! With Kind Regards, Barry Gilbert
    Review by Barry Gilbert for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    Hi this agent , The professionalism, enthusiasm and commitment you demonstrated when assisting to sell my property was fantastic. You listened, appreciated and understood my needs and expectations and delivered a stellar result in such a quick time! I wish you the world of thanks and would look forward to engaging your services again in the future. Cheers!, Ray Macchi
    Review by Ray Macchi for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    I approached this agent at Raine & Horne Manly when it came time to sell my unit in Freshwater. I had lived in my unit for many years, having completed extensive renovations during that time, and was quite sad to have to move on. At the time, I had also approached other agents in the area (three others to be specific). In the end, having vetted all agents thoroughly, completing reference checks and in some cases meeting with them on several occasions, the decision was an easy one to make. My reasons for selecting Raine & Horne Manly were purely to do with this agent ’s professionalism, manner, intuitiveness, and the approach he took in explaining why I should partner with Raine & Horne Manly. Not only did this agent present himself very professionally, he also had a ‘genuineness’ about him which to be honest, was something that lacked in the other agents I had met with. I didn’t feel pressured, or put on the spot to sign up. I was provided with comprehensive information, including references which were very complimentary. this agent prided himself on word of mouth reputation, and to me that was very important and a sign of a good operator. In addition to this, this agent was very observant of the properties pro’s and con’s, and was quick to notice that I had not ‘cut corners’ in renovating. This really contributed to my decision to go with this agent because it gave me the utmost confidence he would represent my property in the best light to prospective buyers. this agent also committed to attend every opening, and to which he upheld that promise. The sale itself went very smoothly. We had several interested parties, it was well marketed, and we had close to 50 groups through on the first opening. I was kept up-to-date throughout the entire process. At no time did I ever need to follow up where things were at. this agent pro-actively managed the whole process, and was sensitive to personal circumstances as we went through the loss of a close family member during that time which pushed things back on our part. He was also mindful of the prospective buyers, and respectfully managed that process in a very ethical manner. Since selling our property, I have contacted this agent on at least two occasions to provide me with advice on some other matters which have come up since purchasing our new place. He has been most helpful and has gone out of his way to find the answers for us, despite not being involved with that transaction. If I am ever looking to sell or purchase another property, I hope this agent is still in the business as he’d be my first point of contact. I have no hesitation in recommending this agent to anyone who is looking to sell or purchase a home. He is professional, genuine, ethical and a really nice guy. Best of all, he’s also great at what he does because we walked away with having achieved an amazing price for our unit, well above our wildest expectations!

    Dear this agent , From the moment we met with you we knew we were in the right hands for the sale of our property. Your professionalism, integrity and highly consultative approach ensured that we were able to sell our place for a price well beyond our expectations, and within 6 days from first inspection, which was unbelievable. We would both like to sincerely thank you and all the team from Raine & Horne Manly for the incredible result you achieved for us. Your commitment, dedication and sound advice to us throughout the entire sale process was outstanding. We were extremely grateful also for the additional guidance you provided, assisting us to purchase our beautiful new home. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this agent and the team at Raine & Horne Manly to anyone who is looking to sell their property. Sincere thanks and best regards, Nicole and Bern Ward - 0402 092 430
    Review by Nicole and Bern Ward for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    Dear this agent and Team, I would like to thank you for all the efforts you made towards achieving a great result in the sale of our Manly Unit. We realised the unit is very old and were not sure how to best present or position it in the market; your advice was invaluable, saved us significant time and money and proved to be ‘on the mark’. In addition, your professionalism and straight forward communication helped manage our stress levels throughout the process. The expectations and strategies proved to be realistic as the market delivered! Please pass on our thanks also to your Team; you all seem to work well together in an organised office. The whole process from start to finish was well managed. I have not hesitation in referring you to others and wish you well for the future. Regards and thanks again, Louise Melville
    Review by Louise Melville for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    Hi this agent , Thank you so much for helping us buy our first home. We are so excited and love it. You made the process as easy as possible, especially advocating for us to the vendor. Thank you for being so open and honest with us & the seller. We would definitely recommend you to our family and friends. Looking forward to moving in soon! Kind regards, Laura and Karl
    Review by Laura and Karl for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    I was very impressed with the performance and professionalism of this agent and the team at Raine&Horne Manly. The agreed strategy was followed to a tee and we received an excellent result. this agent knows the market well and was able to negotiate a strong offer well before the auction.
    Review by Guy Thomas for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    this agent was the agent that sold us our home and he did a great job. There was a three day negotiation period over the weekend and this agent kept us informed and aware of the situation as and when it changed. We felt very well informed and we were extremely thankful. Buying the family home is immensely stressful and this agent was understanding and compassionate the whole way through. We are extremely thankful to this agent and Steph for their great work - as we got our dream home!
    Review by Suzanne Tobin for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    I had no hesitation to choose this agent and the team at Raine&Horne Manly to sell our house in St Ives. I felt confident that he would do the same complimentary sale as he had done for myself previously. As well as the time before, this agent and Steph made sure I had the best tradespeople to ensure the best results for my renovation. Once again, they delivered superb results. I was questioned whether it was wise I acquire an agent whom was not familiar with the area in which I lived however, I felt very positive that this agent and the team were the right choice. this agent has great communication and negotiation skills with a pleasant demeanour. The result of the sale speaks for itself, sold at Auction for well above the reserve price. Thanks again this agent and Steph for your kindness throughout the process of the sale.

    Review by Marcus Lawrence for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    Throughout the process of selling my Dee Why unit I had no doubt that this agent would achieve the best possible price. I would strongly recommend his services to anyone looking to sell their property on the Northern Beaches.
    Review by Nicholas Martinu for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    Hi this agent , I actually don't know where to start in thanking you for the awesome result we got for the sale of our apartment in North Curl Curl. I have been buying and selling property both here and in the UK for 30 years now and I can safely say you are the most professional real estate person I have ever worked with. Not only are you a true professional you are a pleasure to work with, I appreciated your advice and insight into the market. I felt our concerns were listened to and addressed and also appreciated the time you spent time to build the high level of trust with us throughout the process. Once again thank you and I have no hesitation in recommending you and your team. Kind regards, Michelle Kershaw
    Review by Michelle Kershaw for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    Dear this agent and team, We would like to offer our congratulations and thanks on achieving an outstanding result on the sale of our property in Queenscliff. Every aspect of the sale was handled extremely professionally; from the initial discussions and planning, through to the marketing, presentation and subsequent sale. At all stages of the campaign we were well informed and felt that this agent and his team were on top of every detail. Our property sold within 6 days of the first inspection at a price that was significantly beyond our expectations. Thanks to this agent the process was very easy and free of stress. We have no hesitation in recommending this agent and his team at Raine & Horne to friends and anyone seeking a highly professional sales agent. Yours sincerely, Cathy McLean & Kelvin Lawrence

    Hey this agent , See our review below. Thanks again for everything! :) We couldn't have had a better experience with this agent and the team. They were not only professional, but friendly and empathetic. We always felt they were on our side and had our best interest at heart.

    Hey this agent , We wanted to say a massive thanks for all your help with selling my flat in Narrabeen. THANK YOU!! We are thrilled on the result and the sale process (albeit at first daunting!) it was really not that difficult. Both yourself and Steph made it really easy with clear communication though-out the process, we felt we were in more than capable hands. We cannot believe that it's sold within the first week and for more than we anticipated. Wishing you and the team all the success in the future and we certainly will be seeking your professional advice in the near future. Many thanks, Fionna Guy & Evan Gree"
    Review by Fionna Guy & Evan Green for Toby Hutton from Raine & Horne
    this agent impressed us at our initial meeting with his respectful, trustworthy style. Prior experience has caused us to be wary of agents who became overly assertive if a property takes time to sell. this agent struck us as someone who was easy to deal with, both as a seller and buyer. Most importantly, this agent was someone we felt we could trust with the keys to our home as we were living elsewhere at the time. We always felt this agent was on our side and he never lost his enthusiasm despite difficult market conditions and many rainy weekends. He respected our selling price expectations and negotiated with buyers to reach a satisfying outcome. We would hopefully work with this agent again if we have property to sell in the area. - Mardi and Simon

    Being a small family company, we need to feel respected and confident with the people at the sales or purchasing end of our business and this is how we felt with real estate agent Phil Ambrose. We had a high quality, four townhouse project in Balgowlah and in a difficult market environment sold them all with constant enthusiasm and confidence. this agent never saw the poor market conditions as a problem. this agent 's professionalism and enthusiasm, along with complete honesty and integrity, to get the sales through has been very much noticed and appreciated by us.We hereby recommend in the highest order the professional services of this agent to any prospective vendor or purchaser. - Ari
