Lesley Doig acted for me in the sale of my Sydney unit. Being 4 - 5 hours from my country NSW home, most of the business was conducted via telephone and email. By the time we met face to face, for the one and only time, it was almost as if it were a reunion of old friends! The sale went ahead privately before the auction date and during the entire process, Lesley was patient and understanding - especially when I needed help in coping with real estate sale procedure. I would gladly recommend Lesley's professional and friendly approach to business to anyone.

AAA rating
Lesley Doig was the perfect agent to sell our house. She was committed to selling the house, setting a realistic price guide and assisting in getting the house ready for sale.
Lesley went the 'extra mile' with ideas and organising the sale and made the whole experience so easy.
The open houses went smoothly and Lesley did her utmost following up leads and was constantly updating us on feedback from prospective buyers.
Lesley was tireless in her efforts and we admired her friendly, down to earth approach.
I would definitely recommend her to anyone considering selling their property. No matter what the area, she thoroughly researches all aspects of the property and location - the pluses and minuses.
A bug thank you to Lesley and her company for all their efforts and I am so grateful that all ran so smoothly. I would always approach her for future sales.
Cannot fault Lesley Doig and her passion for real estate and especially the vendor.

Exceptional Agent who delivers for the vendor and great 'after sales service' for the buyer
I have dealt with several real estate agents, both as a buyer and purchaser in numerous locations. Catherine is the absolute best. Why? She honestly represented the vendor, who changed their mind on pricing, after the property was placed on the market and supported their rationale. She was knowledgeable about the building the apartment was in and provided honest open responses to my queries as a potential buyer. She followed up with the vendor and the tenants during the sale process to ensure the actual sale process and tenant notification processes went smoothly. This required considerable effort due to some poor performance by the vendor's conveyancing agent. She is knowledgeable about likely costs of renovations in the broader North Sydney area and so helped me determine what expenses I could incur to renovate the apartment. This has been a fabulous help given I have no previous experience in that part of Sydney. Further, she was prepared to share her broad knowledge of potential trades personnel and assist me in engaging them and facilitating access given I simply could not move in till work was done. In summary, Catherine was not only a thorough and honest agent for the vendor but has provided outstanding 'after sales service' to the buyer. She would be my first port of call if I had property to sell in her area of operation.

I was initially quite daunted about the prospect of having to list & sell my Mosman property whilst I was living overseas. I really needed to find the right agent I could trust to sell the property in my absence - thankfully I needn’t have worried, as I had Lesley Doig as my selling agent! Lesley has done a first class job of overseeing getting the property ready to market and running an excellent sales campaign which was topped off with an outstanding result at auction! Lesley has provided an outstanding professional and personable service, throughout the whole process I have felt reassured and confident I was in safe hands! I would highly recommend Lesley and the team.

You have been so efficient and kind. The communications and hand over was well in time, on point and smooth. The paper work and follow up has been on the button. We know we are in very safe hands with you. Thank you again for your time and professional courtesy. It is deeply appreciated.

I have been searching for a property for the last couple of weeks as I am moving to Sydney from Melbourne for a 6 month secondment with my job. During this time I have been quite appalled at the lack of professionalism and courtesy that some of the agents have shown, with many of them never bothering to answer their phones or return my calls. I was finding it frustrating to say the least! When I called Jacqui about a property I was pleasantly surprised to find she actually answered her phone and was extremely helpful and informative. Further to this professionalism, Jacqui went out of her way to assist me with viewing a property, by agreeing to meet me late on Saturday afternoon as I arrived in Sydney from Melbourne. Thanks solely to Jacqui’s efforts, I believe I have now finally found a suitable property to rent, which has not only eased my stress levels, but also greatly pleased my employer :)

We have known Frank Bird for the past four years. We have maintained a relationship because of Frank's professionalism and support in selling three of our four properties. During that time we have found him to be prompt for all appointments, always accompanying his client or tradesperson, taking interest in the small things that so often help a sale. Frank has respected our privacy with regard to open inspections. He has listened to our requirement for sale price increases and achieved them. He has always followed up vigilantly. We have referred our business colleagues to him, and would have no hesitation in continuing to use his expert service.

I purchased a unit from Catherine 10 years ago and sold it through her recently, during those 10 years, she has kept in touch with me by phone to celebrate anniversaries, sent Christmas cards and called with relevant information. At the time of selling my unit, she kept me informed and provided me with professional advice all the way through. It was sold at a very good price. I was so lucky to have Catherine as my agent and so happy with the result and the whole process.

Her efforts have meant I achieved an excellent price for my unit in a relatively short time.
