" Mike & Ali, Lower Plateau Road "
I first met Andrew 3½ years ago, on several occasions, at open house viewings when I was looking to buy a property in the Avalon/Bilgola area. I quickly formed the opinion that he was a genuinely nice man, friendly, open, honest and very knowledgeable about the housing market. When it came to selling our home, my main priority when deciding on an agent was to find one with real integrity and Andrew certainly has that quality in abundance. After meeting Lyndall and the rest of the team at BLAKE Property, I was sure I had made the right decision. The agency put together a very precise, well-organised marketing plan, tailored to fit in with our specified timeline. Communication throughout all stages of the process, by all members of the team, was excellent. The sale itself could not have been any quicker or easier. Our house went onto the BLAKE Property website on a Thursday with the first open house scheduled for the following Saturday. Andrew updated us on the Saturday evening and by Monday we had a firm offer in. As a result, contracts were exchanged the following Wednesday. Thanks to Andrew, Lyndall and the whole team at BLAKE Property our house was sold in six days! I cannot speak highly enough of Andrew and his team. They are totally committed to ensuring the very best outcome for their clients. I would highly recommend BLAKE Property to anybody who is selling their property.
" Geoff & Judy, Trevor Road "
we would like to thank you for the expert manner and courtesy that you have provided during the entire selling operation of our house in newport.
" Don & Fiona, Central Road "
thank you for the smooth and quick sale of central road, it was a pleasure working with you all.
" Adrian & Traudi, Pacific Road "
Andrew Blake is a man of leadership, integrity, spirit and boundless professionalism. Blake Property is the result of his commitment to the Northern Beaches housing market AND his interpersonal skills. His like-minded staff are equally knowledgeable in the various fields of valuation, marketing, sales, rental and contract administration. To a person they are simply delightful to work with. We purchased, AND sold houses in the financial year 2013/14. It isn't easy to farewell a cottage with spectacular views after thirty three years. Thanks to BLAKE Property we did so! — and replaced it with a house much more appropriate to our changed needs. Our overarching memory is one of being guided and cared for by the personable and professional BLAKE Property Team. We have every confidence in recommending Andrew and his staff to anyone about to put their toes into the local real estate market.
" Carola & Mark - Loombah Street "
We would like to pass on to you all our thanks and appreciation for the work that was put in by you all to sell our home. You made us feel like our house was the only listing on your books – (well aware that it wasn’t) – however that is how we felt. The attention, communication, organisation and reliatbility of your team was outstanding. We are more than happy with the price achieved after such a short time on the marklet. BLAKE Property will be recommended by Mark and I to all our friends, colleagues and neighbours.
" Chris & Karin, Cooinda Place "
The thing about Andrew is his tenacity, energy and dedication to achieving the best price possible. In our case the negotiations were complicated, and his commitment was matched by his warm, caring and efficient staff that gave us confidence and support. We owe everyone at BLAKE Property our sincere thanks and have no hesitation in recommending them to sell or buy a property.
" John & Marilyn, Barrenjoey Road "
Thank you to you and your fabulous team for making the sales process so easy and for achieving a fantastic result for us. We greatly appreciate your professionalism, attention to detail, teamwork and friendliness. BLAKE Property really has made it a very rewarding experience in every way.
" Leigh & Brian, Central Road "
Many years ago, when we were house hunting, I asked you to come and give your opinion on a property we were considering. Even though you were not going to be involved in the sale, you graciously gave us your time and input, without expecting anything in return. When we decided to move, you were the first person we thought of to entrust the care of our little slice of Avalon paradise. You and your team continued to make us feel as if we were your only clients! We trusted you to manage the day to day property management issues and relied on you to guide us through the more significant challenges that came along the way. When we made the emotional decision to sell the property, we knew you would take care of us and keep our best interests at heart. Overseeing the sale from another continent, in a completely different time zone was a challenge, but you and the team made it seem effortless. Your marketing advice was spot on and we were amazed at how smooth and stress free the entire process was. Please pass this on to the whole team, including all who helped maintain it over the years, assisting us in retaining its market value and for creating such a personal, warm, sincere approach to real estate. We hope to return to Av, frequently for visits, and when we eventually head home we know exactly who we will be calling to find out forever home!
" Rick & Di, Iluka Road "
Rick and I would like to thank you so much for selling our home. Your tireless effort that you both afforded us to achieve this great result was very much appreciated. We have worked with others and found your professional work attitude and attention to detail along with your knowledge, second to none. To your office team we send a very big thank you for all your help and feedback. You are a great asset to Andrew and his agency. We would not hesitate to recommend your real estate services to any other potential buyers or sellers.
" Judy & Geoff, Seaview Avenue "
We would like to express our thanks to you and your staff for achieving the excellent result on the sale of our unit in Seaview Avenue. We especially appreciate your ongoing commitment during the course of the sale and your perseverance to our complete satisfaction. We would happily recommend you to any prospective vendors and purchasers.
" Phil & Judy, Coolawin Road "
It has been a refreshing change to go through a property transaction and feel completely comfortable with and confident in the selected agent. At all times we felt you were acting in our best interest and we really appreciated the honest and forthright feedback on the sale process. We did not make it any easier for you by leaving the country in the middle of the sales campaign but such was our confidence in you and your support personnel that we had no hesitation in departing. Thank you again for the very professional, polite and efficient service you provided us. You are a real asset to the real estate industry in Avalon.
" Craig & Lisa Goozee, George Street "
I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to you and your wonderful team in the recent sale of our house in George Street. As a purchaser and seller through your agency, I experienced nothing less that 100% honesty and integrity. In both cases, that is what I asked for and received. I have bought and sold over eight properties and would rate your agency as the best that I have dealt with throughout this time. Buying and selling is a stressful process, and if you trust the person responsible for the dealings, then part of that stress is removed. Lisa and I would like to thank you all once again and I would have no hesitation in using you again or recommending you to others.
