2/57 Buckley Street, Moonee Ponds

The easiest decision you're likely to make in the entire process of selling your house is to put it on the market. It's the period of time that follows the decision to move on your most valuable asset that is perplexing.

 

Everybody in your social circle and beyond becomes an instant real estate aficionado: “No, don't sell at auction, the market isn't right.” “Yep, now is the time to sell at auction.” “Private sale - it's the only way to go.” “Sale by date - it's the best way to sell your house now!”

 

And then the real work begins - the recruitment of a real estate agent to handle the sale of your property. One by one, potential agents file through the house, extract the magic figure that you have in your head, and then invariably inflate it in order to secure your business.

 

Enter Lou Rendina, on, may we add, a Sunday afternoon. His thorough approach and decisive demeanour was just what the doctor ordered. He quickly put us straight on the true market value of the property, offered intelligent tips on presentation and garden modifications, was resolute on his decision to sell at auction, and organised a marketing campaign to suit our budget.

 

Leigh Chant was appointed as our agent, and what an inspired choice she turned out to be. Leigh demonstrated absolute professionalism throughout the campaign and was on hand practically 24/7 to answer any queries. We didn't want an overbearing agent to conduct the open houses - her calming influence, experience, honesty and expertise were an invaluable asset. At different periods throughout the open house campaign, we sent through friends, who all reported the same even-keeled and informative approach to questions posed.

 

So, the campaign ran smoothly, we achieved great numbers during the open houses, the team at Rendina was at our beck and call throughout the duration, and we achieved a sale on auction day; all parties concerned were satisfied.

 

Entrusting somebody to sell your home is undoubtedly the most important decision you will make. The plethora of agency choices on offer is staggering and for the uninitiated, a veritable minefield. Rendina offered a professional service, didn't flatter our expectations, and delivered on their commitments and assurances. We honestly couldn't have asked for a more professional real estate agency or comprehensive approach; few people know the inner west better than Lou Rendina.

AMAZING!

To The Rendina Staff

 

 

To All Concerned,

 

 

We are pleased to recommend Lou Rendina and his highly qualified and attentive staff to any prospective vendor.  We had the misfortune of originally signing with another agency.  This other large agency did a shocking job leaving us feeling more than a bit bleak with our situation.  Lou and Luana Rendina, along with Nathan Collyer and the rest of the Rendina team decisively took the reins and turned around what was quite a bad situation for any vendor to be in. 

 

The level of attention we received throughout the campaign was amazing.  Whenever I rang or emailed, I was responded to immediately and Lou's advice on how to best 'show' our home was fantastic.  Rendina is not just a “signing” agency. Rendina is a full service, red carpet, and excellent value for money real estate agency.

 

On a personal level, Lou Rendina is not only a class act, but he and his team's conduct was always professional, caring, ethical and determined.  They took on the sale of our home, as if it was their own.  I wouldn't place the sale of any future home with anyone else. 

 

Sincerely,

 

M & J Vulin

HARD WORK & COMMITMENT

I engaged Rendina Real Estate to sell my Moonee Ponds property. My dealings with Rendina were nothing short of excellent. The selling process was straightforward with the property sold quickly and at an excellent price.

I would personally like to thank Lou for his hard work and commitment to achieving a fantastic outcome.  His well planned and budgeted marketing campaign achieved a sale with three weeks of its commencement, with a sale price well above my reserve.  Lou kept me up to date each week with the potential buyers and level of interest in the property.  Lou accurately assessed the likely sale price and managed my expectations at all times.

Although selling a property is typically a stressful experience (especially when the market is so unpredictable), my dealings with Rendina were an absolute pleasure.  Like their other clients, I can attest to their integrity, professionalism and reliability.  I have no hesitation in recommending Rendina to my family and friends.

EFFORT & PROFESSIONALISM

Marie & I would like to thank you and your staff for the effort & professionalism put into the sale and rental management of the property.

Special mention needs to be made of Nathan, a very pleasant and approachable young man.

Nathan did an excellent job, on our behalf, in the management and negotiation of frustrating tenants who were less than co-operative in many areas during the sale period. Throughout, Nathan's communications were excellent, keeping me updated and constantly advising / verifying the direction we should take on a regular basis, and ensuring any follow through was completed, to make a successful sale.

I would like to have gone through the 'Auction Process' for the experience, however I can only say, you managed a very fair outcome on our behalf.

We would both like to thank yourself and Nathan, and your company for all your positive efforts, plus the flowers.

Thank you all, kind regards,

K & M Bowler

ABSOLUTE COMMITMENT

Dear Lou,

 

I just want to thank you again for your work and dedication to selling our house in Flemington. We have been very impressed with your professionalism and absolute commitment to achieving an amazing outcome for us on the sale.

From the outset of the negotiation process you represented your business with knowledge and a high level of customer service.  You leveraged your consistent results on similar properties and extensive experience in the local area, as well as your flexibility to provide a competitive fee structure, to create a very compelling reason to sign with you over and above other agents in the area.

Once we had signed, we felt confident that you were managing our interests with a balanced view to the market. You didn't over promise and under deliver, rather you gave us frequent and realistic information and advice to help us throughout the selling process. We also appreciated that you managed our relationship from a distance with us being in Sydney and never felt that we missed your personal attention to our campaign.

The final sale price you achieved for us far exceeded our expectations and we felt this was clear evidence of your skill as an agent as well your experience and understanding of the local market and the types of buyers it attracts. The fact that you were able to sell our house significantly above our reserve within a week of the first open illustrates why Rendina real estate is so successful.

With this being now the 4th time we have done business with Rendina either through buying or selling property over the last 10 years, I would now unequivocally recommend you and your team to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area.

Thankyou!

Bronwyn and Simon Thomas

RENDINA THE CLEAR CHOICE IN KENSINGTON & MOONEE PONDS

I wish to write to you and personally thank all the staff at Rendina Real Estate for the recent sale of both my properties at Fairbairn Dve, Kensington & Holmes Rd, Moonee Ponds.


After reviewing the market, it became clear that Rendina was the clear choice in the Kensington and Moonee Ponds area. I was
delighted on the prices Rendina achieved, exceeding my reserve in excess of $50,000 on both properties. The attention to detail, close consultation and professional service made the entire process very comfortable and very rewarding.


I have bought and sold in the local area many times in the past with a variety of results but i know i can trust you to always return a successful result. Thank you once again and i look forward to future dealings with your agency.

Yours sincerely,
D Michelsen

Honesty and Professionalism

Dear Lou,


Just a short note to thank you and your Company for the way my wife and I were treated during the purchase of our property at Maribyrnong.

When I picked up the keys at your office after settlement, I was handed a gift and a thank you card for purchasing from Rendina Real Estate. I must say I was actually “stuck for words” at the kindness of receiving a card and a gift.

During the period before settlement, on many occasions, I needed to ask for  assistance and found that at all times i was treated with special care and attention, the customer service provided by your team was exceptional. I found your honesty and professional ethics to be of a very high standard.


Again, thank you for your assistance and I commend your company for employing young professionals.


Sincerely Yours,
J. Leonello

Highly Recommended

I would like to personally thank the staff at Rendina Real Estate for selling my home.

 

I can only highly recommend the Rendina team. It has been a tough time for my family over the last few months and I found that Rendina understood that and took special effort to go out of their way.

 

Selling our home on the auction day was a relief and the advice that I had received up until auction day was outstanding, which left me feeling comfortable and informed at all times.


I would have no hesitations recommending the Rendina Team and their service to anyone in the future.

Yours sincerely,

STRESS FREE BUYING IN KENSINGTON

During my search for a new home in Kensington, I have had the pleasure of being served by Nathan Collyer. From the first time I met Nathan at an Open for Inspection, he has served me with the utmost care and professionalism.

On several occassions, Nathan has demonstrated a committment to excellent customer service by arranging meetings and inspections beyond the normal business hours to cater to my busy life.

Nathan has also shown me that he pays attention to his clients needs and wants by constantly presenting to me properties that meet my criteria both aesethetically, functionally and within my price range.

Throughout the whole process, Nathan constantly keeps me up to date with the progress of the offer and settlement procedures. I can honestly say that Nathan has taken away the stress of finding a new home for me.

If there is a time in the future where I have to call upon the services of a real estate agent, I would not hesitate in contacting Nathan again.

Should you wish to attain a verbal reference from me regarding Nathan Collyer, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best regards,

Couldn't Believe It

I write to you in huge praise & appreciation of Lou Rendina, who recently sold our property as referred above, for a complex record price & within a single figure time frame of it being on the market.......my wife & I, needless to say, couldn't be more delighted with the result.

The level of Lou's competency, professionalism & intestinal fortitude, throughout our short business dealing was nothing short of sensational.

It was certainly very refreshing to see a young man, such as Lou, continuously show us an enormous amount of tenacity, determination to succeed & enthusiasm, before, during & after the sale of our unit. Lou's communication skills, clarity & negotiation abilities were amongst the most impressive I have experience in all my years in corporate/business life.

I would certainly have no hesitations whatsoever in recommending, in particular, Lou & you're company to any of my family & friends in the future.

Yours sincerely

Job Well Done

Special thank you to the Rendina Real Estate Team - Re. Sale of our property in Albermarle St, Kensington

The purpose of this letter is to thank the Rendina Real Estate team for the very successful sale of our Kensington property.  We believe the lead up to the auction provided interested buyers with an in-depth understanding of the Kensington Village and its potential for the future, and in turn enabling us to obtain the very good price for our Kensington property.

The auction itself was a great experience for us with the Rendina team providing us with great support both before and after the auction.  Once again, thanks to all at Rendina and a special mention to Lou for a job well done.

Commitment & Professionalism in Kensington

 

When making the decision to sell our house selecting Rendina was a simple choice as whenever driving through the Kensington area the Rendina brand was prominent and seemed to be selling 90% of the properties in the area. Our initial meeting was with Nathan Colleyer and Lou Rendina. We had asked for Nathan as we had seen that he had his name on almost every sign in the area which meant he had a strong customer base. The meeting was conducted extremely professionally and plenty of research had gone into the presentation. After the meeting we had no hesitation in signing up with Nathan and Redina Real Estate as we knew that they would make every effort to achieve the best result.

 

Right from the beginning we found Nathan to be positive, informative and proactive in the sale of our home.  Once we had officially set the auction date things started to move quickly and with approximately 1 - 2 weeks of setting the auction date the first offer came in.  The period from the first offer through to the final offer was about 2 1/2 days and throughout this time Nathan worked extremely hard for us in securing a successful outcome.  We were impressed with his dedication through out the campaign. He regularly organized meetings with us after hours, as well as regularly showing people through on different nights during the week. After receiving our first offer at no stage did we feel pressured into accepting the offer or did Nathan try to sway as in a particular direction.

 

Finally we would have no hesitations in recommending Nathan to anybody who looking to sell their house. His commitment, service and professionalism has allowed us to receive results we doubt we could have got elsewhere.

Rankins Road, Kensington

Sincere Thanks

Hi Nathan,

I had wanted to pass on my most sincere thanks for assisting me with the purchase of my first home in Rankins Rd, Kensington. Throughout the process, I could not have faulted the way in which you went about your job. I had initially contacted you about a flat in Flemington as I was interested in knowing the price at which it had been sold and to see if there were any other similar properties in the area that matched what I was looking for. After carefully listening and obviously noting my needs, you proceeded to show me two properties that came very close to what I was looking for and not long after - the perfect place! This was brilliant as I managed to secure the property, before the property was advertised.

Inspections were able to be set at times that were convenient, I never felt pressured, and my queries were well researched. This was all very refreshing, especially as your local competitors often did not return my calls, answer my queries and persisted on showing me through properties that clearly did not match my requirements or likes. What can be a draining, frustrating and lengthy period - you made simple, easy and I could not be happier with my purchase.

I sincerely apologise for not thanking you sooner. I have recommended you and your agency to numerous friends and family who have expressed interest in the area so I hope that you do hear from them. I wish you all the success in your role for the future!

Best regards and thanks again,


C. Ibbs

His professional, but personable attitude was a pleasant surprise and we found ourselves constantly being kept up to date regarding the purchase of our house.

His customer service is excellent and we felt we, as the customer, were his top priority, and meeting our needs was in the forefront of his mind. I would not hesitate in recommending him to others.

Professional Group

In May we engaged Rendina Real Estate to sell our Kensington property. We were impressed by the team approach of the sales department, presenting a professional group of agents with a diverse range of expertise to ensure a successful outcome for the vendor.

We would personally like to thank Nathan Collyer for his professionalism, honesty and commitment to providing superior customer service.  Nathan was easily reached and followed through with tasks, he provided regular information with regards to potential buyers and level of interest in the property.  Nathan provided honest contributions and insight based on his knowledge of real estate potential in the area and worked with us to promote the successful sale of our property.

With the team at Rendina we achieved an excellent outcome, which exceeded our expectations.   I have no hesitation in recommending Rendina Real Estate.

Honest, Accurate & Relevant

 

Recently we have had dealings with Mr Nathan Collyer of Rendina Real Estate in Kensington. Initial contact was made through chance and led to the purchase of a highly sought after property. This led to the selling of our existing property in the same complex.

 

Nathan handled both the purchase and sale process with enthusiasm and we found our dealings with him to be honest, accurate and relevant.

 

We believe his professionalism and attention to detail in both transactions enabled us to buy for a realistic and manageable price whilst achieving a sale price above the reserve for our existing property.

 

We have no hesitation in recommending Nathan to any potential buyer or seller who may wish to utilise his services.

 

 

Sincerely,

WAY ABOVE EXPECTATION!

Dear Nathan

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the professional way you marketed & sold our property.  The price you achieved was way above our expectations, but in line with your calculations.  Prior to the auction, you kept us informed after each open day & of the offers from prospective buyers, however your advise to wait & go to auction, achieved a great result for us.

I would have no hesitation recommending you & Rendina for any future business.

Yours sincerely,

D & A Conners

Exceeded Expectations

We were very happy with the auction result - certainly exceeded my expectation!

 

Many thanks for the advice you gave me, regular updates provided & reassurances! I also just want to mention your secretary (Olivia) - a couple of times that I called the office, she knew exactly who I was and that I lived in the UK and thus aware of the time difference & difficulty in communicating by phone. That level of service is hard to come by.

"I was very happy with the service provided by Lou Rendina for the sale of my property in Flemington. As I'm based in the UK, I relied quite heavily on the advice provided by Lou on the current market conditions in Melbourne and choice of marketing campaign.

 

Lou's advice turned out to be spot-on and thanks to his work during the campaign, the sale price achieved was above my expectations. I would certainly recommend Lou and Rendina Real Estate to others."

38 Lincoln Mews, Kensington

Dear Rendina,

 

Thank you for selling our property in such a short period of time and at a reasonable price given the current economic conditions. We were very impressed with you professionalism in our dealings. We were kept informed every step of the way in regards to buyer's details, opening times and results of the opens. Your enthusiasm and earnest to get us the best possible prices was much appreciated.

 

The signing of the contract was made easy when you came all the way from Kensington to Mount Waverly on a late evening. You have made the selling of our property a stress free ordeal and I highly recommend you to anyone wanting to sell his or her property. A good agent is one who gets on with it and seizes the opportunity to corner the buyer whnever possible and you have definitely  demonstrated your ability to hold on to buyers and make them pay a better price.

 

Thanks again for your assistance.

 

Regards,

6/8-32 Howlett Street, Kensington

Dear Nathan,

 

I am writing to thank you so much for your outstanding service while selling my apartment, Howlett Street, Kensington.

 

After my experience when I purchased the property though you 3 1/2 years ago, (which I have never forgotten and comment regularly on to friends and family), I had no hesitation or doubt listing my property exclusively with you when I decided to sell and move overseas.

 

Nathan, you provide such a positive, dedicated, friendly & professional service and the experience of selling with you was outstanding, I am very grateful, for not only the outcome, but for the whole process and how you took me through it.

 

You are a genuine professional who is naturally friendly and non-intrusive with your deadlines, and that is a rare mix in any industry. As is your skill of managing expectations - say what you do and do what you say - a simple phrase, but so important, and you managed my expectations perfectly which kept me calm and happy throughout the whole process. You also kept me up to date with all the information I needed, I never felt like I did not know what was going on, but as importantly I never felt like you were communicating with me just so you could tick me off your list for the day.

 

You know the area, and the interested buyers you have are also genuine, again, so important it is not about quantity it is about quality and you certainly have a talent for matching buyers and property.

 

I also want to comment on the extra effort you also put in after hours, you really work for the sellers and buyers and are so accommodating, some Sundays and long weekends, it is ok to turn your phone off!!!

 

Nathan, sincerely, thank you, as mentioned, not just for the great outcome, but for the whole process - it is truly appreciated.

 

Take care, I wish you all the best for the future, and congratulations to the lucky people who enlist your time when selling real estate.

 

Warm regards,

 

Kirstin M

"The service provided by Nathan Collyer of Rendina Real Estate, well exceeded my expectations. Regular updates at varying times from 'open for inspections' to general enquires provided me with a high degree of comfort. Nathans knowledge and market understanding provided me with further insight towards selling my home. When selling a home constant contact with the Sales Executive is of high importance to me which Rendina exceeded".

Sale of 15 Banchory St Essendon

This is just a short note to thank you and Lou for an outstanding result in the sale of our property in Banchory St Essendon. I have appreciated the way that you have provided frequent and clear feedback regarding potential purchaser attitudes, and general advice regarding the sale process.

 

We had the added difficulty of selling a house with an existing lease. You have managed the relationship with the tenants to ensure that they participated in the open for inspections that enabled the property to be presented in the best possible condition.

 

When we first met I set you and Lou a “Stretch Objective” for that sale price. I did not expect it to be achieved. That the Rendina team exceeded that objective is a credit to you through out the sales campaign, and Lou as the Auctioneer.

 

I would have no hesitation using Rendina Real Estate in the future, or recommending Rendina to friends and family.

 

Regards,

MORE DELIGHTED CUSTOMERS

“I met with five agents initially and selected Nathan because of his auction results and more importantly because of the professionalism he exhibited.”

 

“We had five months wasted by the previous agents. Nathan was then appointed. He was inventive, consistent and always gave regular updates.”

 

“Nathan's professional approach and conduct of business before, during and after the sale was truly outstanding.'

 

“We were delighted will the result on auction day. It truly surpassed our expectations. Thank you Nathan for being professional, courteous and enthusiastic throughout the whole process.”

 

“Whilst the market at present has proven to be difficult for those like us selling properties, we can rest assured that the price we received on auction day was all due purely to the application of Nathan's market knowledge and his commitment to achieving the best possible result.”

 

“Thank you for your guidance and sound advice. Your professionalism, enthusiasm and honesty ensured us a quick and successful result.”

 

“I would like to thank Nathan on his excellent customer service skills during the sale of my property. He was always professional and extremely helpful.”

M. Partridge

 

“Nathan was very professional and well prepared from the very beginning. I have no hesitation in recommending him to my neighbours and friends.”

Superlative and Successful Effort

Dear Richard Rendina,

 

This is to thank you for your superlative and successful effort on our behalf during the past  12 months. That time has co-incided with the most difficult property market in Melbourne that I can remember since I bought my first property in 1975.  In that time you have sold not one but two properties for us- a town house in Ascot Vale and a Victorian house in Moonee Ponds.  In both cases other agents had tried and failed before we turned to you - and you did not let us down.

 

Any agent can sell a property in a hot market but  a hot market in Melbourne is now a distant memory. A former US president once said “when the going gets tough, the tough get going”.  You did get going and got for us the results we needed.

 

Thanks again

TESTIMONIAL FROM A VERY SATISFIED VENDOR

“Selling the family home in uncertain economic times was never going to be a straight-forward exercise”.  “Choosing a competent real estate agent with a proven track record can certainly ease the pain”.  These were the words of Kensington resident Don Walsgott, following the successful sale of his property last week by Richard Rendina of Rendina Real Estate, following a 5 week sales campaign.

 

“From the day I walked into their office in Macaulay Road, through until the Contract of Sale document was signed, Richard Rendina made the project as stress-free as possible for me,” Don added. 

 

“Richard's attention to detail, his presentation and courteous manner, and timely execution of return phone calls, house visits and document preparation took much of the stress away from the exercise for me”, Don said.  “It let me get on with my life whilst they got on with the job of selling my home”.  “In fact, I went on holiday during the campaign”, Don added.

 

“In my retirement, I am now downsizing to a smaller, manageable place” Don said.  “Prior to, and following the execution of the sale, Richard also assisted me with helpful advice on how to prepare my home for sale, and how to deal with an excess of furniture following the sale.”

 

“I bought this home from Rendina, and chose to sell with them” 11 years later.  “I am glad I chose Rendina to look after my interests”.  “In these tough times, you need a sales team with local experience, tenacity, and the ability to make the sale, just as their slogan states”, Don concluded.

Sincere Thanks and Appreciation - 32 Athol Street, Moonee Ponds

Dear Lou,

We would like to thank you, along with the Rendina team, for your fantastic work in assisting us with the sale of our home inAthol Street, Moonee Ponds. While we initially had very little experience with property sales, you certainly made us feel at ease with your high level of integrity and professional approach throughout the duration of the campaign.

The staff maintained continuous contact with us and kept us well informed on the progress of the campaign. Their reliability and proficiency should certainly be acknowledged, and we always felt confident and assured that our property was being dealt with in the right hands. We trust that the potential buyers also felt at ease with the staff's honesty, professionalism and high level of interaction.

We were all very impressed with the way the auction was conducted on the day. The turnout amazed us all and your level of commitment and excitement left us all on the edge of our seats in anticipation. It is fair to say that the final result exceeded our expectations and we are ecstatic. We have you and the Rendina team to thank for our success. Your efforts and dedication will always be remembered.

On behalf of the extended family, we are proud to have had the pleasure of being represented by the Rendina team, who always had our best interests at heart. The level of excellence and competence displayed has certainly been recognised, and we will most definitely be recommending you to prospective vendors and buyers in the future.

Thanks again,

Elizabeth F. and Extended Family

I feel lucky that I made a wise decision to choose Rendina to be my selling agent when there are so many choices out there to sell a house.

When we met Aaron for the first time we were already impressed by the information pack he showed us, which is tailored-designed for each individual property Rendina is to sell for their clients. By carrying out the advertising strategy Aaron proposed, and by following his advice on how to promote the image of our house, the property got presented to it's full potential in a way most attractive to buyers.

Throughout the whole process Aaron has been keeping us updated on progress and seeking our instructions/intentions. After only one single inspection we recieved a satisfying offer, and Aaron with his experience and skills, made his greatest effort to achieve a selling price that is outstanding in the local area to make the deal happen. Unbelieveably, it only took us less than 3 weeks to sell the house!

Right from the first property inspection,  Aaron Spiteri demonstrated a totally professional and energetic attitude.

He was at all times prepared to go that little bit extra to ensure our property was marketed in the best possible manner. He was always well prepared and punctual in conducting inspection openings and on every occasion communicated with us immediately afterwards. His strategy in bringing the sale to fruition was an excellent one and proved an outstanding success so we were very pleased with the outcome and the price achieved.

Altogether, we could not be happier with Aaron and Rendina Real Estate and we would definitely endorse and recommend them to anyone considering a future sale.

Buyer Feedback, Aberdeen Street

During the selling campaign of the property in Aberdeen Street Aberfeldie, Aaron Spiteri maintained a high standard of professionalism. He answered all questions I had about the property thoroughly, confidently and honestly.

He kept me informed with the progress of the sale campaign through regular emails and phone calls. He greeted me with a smile on all four occasions of my inspection attendances. He even organised a private viewing for my son and I outside the set ‘open for inspection’ times, which I much appreciated. Aaron’s warm, friendly nature is to be commended.

It is for this reason and the above mentioned that I would recommend his services to prospective buyers and vendors.

Yours sincerely

Agatha D’Elia

I was referred by a good friend who had dealt with Aaron previously; I got in a local agent before Aaron to give me an idea of value and marketing proposal. The professionalism Aaron showed was far superior to the agent that came through, he outlined a detailed game plan in the way we would attack the market and during the campaign his feedback including detailed weekly reports kept me informed and up to date with the sale, which made my decision on reserve price an educated one.

Aaron sold the property before auction and above expectation. He phoned me at 10pm after he finally closed the deal which outlined his work ethic and determination.

I will be a repeat client.

Aaron is very kind and nice person and he was easy and fun to work with. He helped me with my first home, gave me a lot of insight about how to buy the house and explained the whole process gave me knowledge and taught me what I need to do next.

He is very Initiative, independent and has great communication skills. He was always quick to reply to my message or phone calls, even my broker said I was very lucky to meet and work with Aaron.

I chose Aaron because he sold another property for me and did an outstanding job. With this property, it had become vacant and started to become a liability. There were about 7 other apartments for sale in the block at the same time.

Aaron made my property really stand out from the others with hire furniture and top photography and an aggressive marketing campaign.

Aaron managed to get an offer and negotiate up another $20,000 to get me a price I was happy with and selling after only 2 weeks on the market!

The quick sale allowed me to move on, with a highest possible price with the lowest amount of stress.

This was my first property sale and I was very nervous about the market and how the property would perform. Nathan was totally upfront with his expectations. He gave me a range of what he expected the market would deliver, which actually enveloped my own expectations.

He kept me well informed throughout the process, and I was extremely impressed at the way he was prepared to push for the upper end of the range, which was eventually achieved, and not just settle for the first offers recieved. I had no surprises, and had total confidence in Nathan. Very happy customer. Thanks Nathan.

We chose Rendina Real Estate on a friends recommendation and knowing that they knew the Kensington market better than anyone. My wife and I are happy to say that our expectations were certainly exceeded with ease.

Nathan proved to be very professional, confident and kept us well informed along the way. The result spoke for itself we got well above our reserve and that is the bottomline. I would definitely recommend Nathan and Rendina Real Estate to anyone considering selling in the Kensington area, why would you bother with anyone else?

Rendina and their recipe for success absolutely worked for me. Lou oozed business, sales and reputation and Nathan, experience, knowledge and unassuming determination. Together, a formidable force who truly achieve results.

Immediately after signing with Rendina, I actually felt good. I'd made the right decision and despite the outcome, I already knew it. There were no "what if's" and no regrets.

My marketing campaign lasted 6 weeks due school holidays. Lou advised me to employ a stylist, which I did. Christine from Home Sweet Home Decor arrived the following day and worked her magic. Money very well spent for those who have doubts. It was absolutely worth it.

Twice a week, Nathan arrived, suited up and enthusiastic. His professionalism. consideration and approach, coupled with his desire to succeed instilled my confidence. I received regular phone calls, texts and emails, as did my husband. In addition to this, my phone calls to both Nathan and Lou were returned promptly, even on the weekends. Nathan visited the property prior open for inspections to turn on the heating and to clear the mailbox and ensure all was in order. If something needed doing, he told me. I wanted nothing to be amiss and he knew and respected this. The level of customer service delivered was superior and far exceeded my expectations. What impressed me most was their killer attitude towards working the market to achieve the best results. They were a force united to sell, sell , sell. I loved it.

My property was passed in at auction but fear not. I listened and I learnt. Three words. Listen to Lou. Patience and 2 buyers is all it takes and it did. Nathan's words also echoed in my ears. Three weeks later, I signed a contract for more than my reserve. Nathan was as genuinely pleased as what I was. 

Lou Rendina and Nathan Collyer were absolutely right for my property. With sincere certainty, I am confident they will be right for you.

Carolyn

Very satisfied vendor.

Thank you to both Nathan and Lou for a service I can not fault.  From start to finish the process has not only been easy from my end but I had complete trust in them selling my property for the best price.  As I live in the USA I had to be able to trust them and with the ongoing communication and updates I was always informed of what was going on. 

I can’t thank Rendina enough for the record price I obtained for the property and highly recommend them to sell your property…… you won’t be disappointment and in fact you may even be as surprised as I was.

We just wanted to write to thank you very much for the fantastic job you did selling out apartment for us.

We decided to appoint you as our real estate agent because since moving into Kensington Banks three years again we have seen you ALL THE TIME in the Banks selling properties.  We didn’t think anyone could know this market better then you, or be more qualified to sell our apartment.  Both my husband and I have always found you professional, friendly and happy to discuss real estate with us.

We were thrilled with the advice you gave us on how to conduct the sale campaign, and with the results you achieved.

Thank you once again for a great job, and all the best for the future

8-32 Howlett Street, Kensington Banks

We recently purchased Unit 20/8-32 Howlett St, Kensington Banks, Vic 3031: (two bedrooms, one bathroom, one car port). We dealt with Rendina Real Estate and Nathan Collyer.

We are from Perth in Western Australia, and were visiting Melbourne leading up to Easter 2014 (Good Friday 18th April). We saw the property on Wednesday 16th April and were told it was to be auctioned on April 26th, so with the Easter break and Anzac Day (Friday 25th April) in the next week, business days were limited. Our offer for the property had to be unconditional, but Nathan communicated with our bank and the owner to maximise the opportunity for us to make such an offer, which we did on the Thursday 24th April.

Despite the potential time hazards to conducting business, Nathan worked tirelessly and supportively to assist in every way he could, while following the essential protocols and legislation as required for properties being auctioned.

We were highly impressed by Nathan’s diligence, his very effective communication regarding the process and where it was up to, and his high ethical standards.

As we told Nathan, for all the pressure and time constraints, for the first time we enjoyed the purchasing process.

With sincere thanks.

As a new (and first) home buyer it can be a stressful time, Aaron as the agent representing the property from our first interaction was professional, patient and transparent with the process (and me – with all my questions).

For anyone wanting to sell or looking to buy I would be happy to recommend Aaron

Dear Leigh,

 

15 The Palladio, 15 Caravel Lane, DOCKLANDS

 

Thanks for the sale of the apartment at Docklands. The price achieved was way beyond my expectations.

I also appreciated the way you made things so easy for me whilst I was working overseas during the sale period.  That took away all the normal stress involved in selling a property.

Leigh, this is the second time you have sold property for me - both whilst I was working overseas – and both times the price exceeded my expectations and both times the sale process was totally stress free.

 

So, thanks to you and all the team at Rendina.  I will certainly recommend any of my friends and colleagues to contact you if they are considering a sale.

 

Regards and Best wishes

 

David Kay
