At every step of the sale process, Catherine Hawkins was communicative, friendly, and helpful. She kept me up-to-date with every viewing and with prospective buyers. She helped me remain grounded and soothed my vendor nerves, as a sale can be a nerve-wracking process. She dealt pleasantly and efficiently with the tenants and the strata managers. Catherine is up-beat and incredibly hard-working. She was in constant communication with me during the process. I appreciate her hard work, friendly and positive manner, and efficiency. I would recommend her to anyone selling their property. She will get it done!

Exchanged today and we are so happy! Louise has been super helpful and has gone above and beyond to make sure we are happy with our new build apartment, working with the builders to tailor a few specific requirements which were important to us. Always available by phone, text and email, even on her days (and nights) off! Thanks again Louise, we are now looking forward to completion.

A great experience working with a true professional.
In the past 50 years I have sold 12 residential properties and this last sale was handled by the best real estate agent I have used over that period. Phil is a very experienced professional agent who started by discussing my objectives in terms of price and timing, and then giving me the benefit of his knowledge of the market in my area and in my apartment building where he has sold several other properties. He gave me a price range which I agreed with and we sold the apartment within 8 weeks within that price range. This has been during the coronavirus pandemic when buyers have been scarce and concerned about prices falling, yet we achieved the highest price ever in this apartment building. Phil went beyond the call of duty to solve problems and was available at all times to discuss progress with me. He exceeded all my expectations and I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an excellent real estate agent, especially in the Sydney Lower North Shore area.

Wonderful Service!
I cannot speak highly enough of R&W North Sydney. They take lots of the hard work out of owning my investment property. Over the many years they have been my agents they have helped me with so many different problems. I wouldn't consider using anyone else. Allan my property manager is always a delight to work with and exceeds my expectations.

Catherine goes so far above and beyond!

We have bought and sold many properties over the years and can honestly say we have never encountered an agent as amazing as Catherine. We live interstate and Catherine was a real gem organising everything from the staging of the apartment and small repairs through to some difficult negotiations during and at the end of the auction process. Catherine is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of real estate, knows the market extremely well and was spot on with her expectations and guidance regarding the final selling price for our property. We felt in such good hands the whole way and are really delighted at the final price achieved. As well as all that Catherine is a very stylish lady and has a calm and re-assuring manner. We are actually sorry that we soon won't have need to chat with her on a regular basis. She feels like a friend.

It is no surprise to us that Catherine won North Sydney Agent of the Year 2020. She truly deserves it. Thanks so much for everything Catherine!

Catherine we feel fortunate to have had you leading us through the successful sale of our property. It was not an easy market and your professionalism was impressive. Thank you.

We believe your experience, timing, direction and understanding of the market place were crucial to the successful result you delivered... particularly in that difficult market. Your timing to place us in the market was perfect! Your very considerable communications and management skills throughout the process were also noted and appreciated along with your extensive local knowledge.

Sincere thanks Catherine and we look forward to working with you in the future.

She is very caring and compassionate and provides very personal communication throughout the process. She always made sure I knew exactly what part of the process we were up to and I actually learnt a lot about the property market and it’s workings through Catherine.

This is to thank and appreciate Louise Barton and Jacqui Mulligan for their exceptional Property Management at R&W North Sydney. Louise and Jacqui went out of their way to carry out open house for the apartment at North Sydney during multiple days and managed to secure a tenant within two weeks of initial listing, especially in a competitive rental market where there were other properties in the vicinity. Thank you for the excellent support, professionalism, assistance and keeping us informed during the rental process and also coordinating the replacement of a new glass shower screen. Happy to recommend Catherine, Jacqui, Louise, Alan, Karen and the Team at R&W for their professional, exceptional friendly service.

Allan Sikorski
I wanted you to know personally that I have found Allan Sikorski to be an exceptional property manager. Living in Queensland, it is difficult to know how the property is without first hand knowledge.

I believe Allan has gone above and beyond to not only save costs for myself and the tenant, but also in his relationship management. He has impressive skills that have managed to successfully negotiate between myself and my tenant a 12 month lease and, despite a range of issues, he has always been honest with the tenant and myself and been proactive and offered solutions the minute any issue was raised.

I have been pleasantly surprised at the level of management from a new property manager that I have yet to meet.

Seller experience with Wendy Lam - Excellent
Wendy understood the market very well and having listened patiently of our expectations provided reasonable appraisal of the property. She provided regular update to us with visitor feedback, value added with suggestions on how to handle tenant and prepare the place for inspection. Handled both overseas and local buyers well. She provided honest opinions to both buyers and sellers I felt. The final agreed price was ideal end of the vendor range.
This was a great outcome and we felt we always had good support from this agent.
She also communicated regularly with my lawyer on paper work.

Incredible Agent - You wont find any better than Cath

Catherine Hawkins is the Real Deal!!
She is the best agent we have ever dealt with. Catherine is highly professional and experienced with extensive local knowledge. She did an exceptional job providing almost daily feedback on the progress of the campaign. We achieved an amazing result with the apartment comfortably exceeding the reserve.
Catherine is a highly ethical agent that treats everyone fairly, unlike other agents that play games with the price guide to attract more interest.
If your looking to sell your property, I would strongly recommend using Catherine Hawkins as your sales agent.

Excellent experience

Phillip Clarke is an excellent real-estate agent and a pleasure to work with. He sold our apartment in North Sydney at the price we wanted before auction. Throughout the whole process he was courteous and helpful. He has an unparalleled knowledge of the North Sydney market. Even though we had owned the property in question for 20 years, he knew more about than we did, especially about construction in this rapidly changing area. Phil kept us fully informed all the time, reporting immediately on all offers and results of viewings. What we liked especially about Phil is that he tells it as it is. Unlike many other agents, he is straightforward, honest and reliable. We couldn’t have wished for a better agent and can recommend him wholeheartedly.

From the outset, it was a pleasure to work with Phil, as apart from his affable manner, he had a clear strategy around the marketing and sales process for the apartment. Living in Europe meant that having an agent with a good communications focus was always going to be very important and Phil did a great job of reporting back on the enquiries he'd received, the viewings he had undertaken, so that I always had a good overview of where we were in the process and how things were going. Even in a slow market, he never lost his focus and actively pursued every single enquiry. Once we had a potential buyer, Phil was also very proactive in pulling together the paperwork and related reports in order facilitate a quick and smooth closing of the sale transaction. There was genuinely no part of the process which wasn't handled with the highest level of professionalism.

An outstanding overall, above expectations purchasing experience.

From the first handshake Wendy was personable and engaging, not only with us but with everyone at the apartment inspection. Unlike other agents we’ve experienced, we were ushered from the concierge to the apartment, garage and pool facilities in the building and upon returning we were thoroughly but not overwhelmingly shown the property. We were understood as being a genuine purchaser early in the process and negotiations were considerate and honest.

Once she had completed our purchase, Wendy personally streamlined our letting process which was an unexpected service and a pleasant surprise to us from a sales agent not once trying to offload us to her property management department. She maintained herself as our link with R&W North Sydney and she oversaw the prompt leasing of our purchase through to completion at a rent that we were extremely pleased to be achieving. Wendy updated us of everything in this process as it developed.

We are very happy to be writing this review of Wendy.

an excellent experience, everything she promised

catherine really sold us walker street and then sold webb street.

she gave us early access to what we had wanted to buy and then calmly evaluated and guided us through our sale on our terms (we didn't want an auction or to spend money on upgrades, we wanted to sell "as is")
she accurately assessed the sale price, humoured us when we asked to put in on the market for more and managed the whole process with us overseas. she told the first person to make an offer what we would accept and short circuited any haggling. she is great.

From the moment you sign your sales agreement the 'tour-de-force' that is Wendy Lam is unleashed. There are agents and there ARE AGENTS, Wendy Lam is one of the latter. I have used her twice in recent years and each time it's a 'slam dunk' in terms of service, advice and most importantly closing the deal with absolute best price. Wendy is on the case 7 days a week if necessary to secure and lock in the best deal for the owner. Quite simply not using this woman will cost you money.

Wendy is the BESTEST AGENT because Wendy has recently sold my Off-the-plan RESALE property for me with a right price within a very short period of critical time just BEFORE my property settlement with the developer! Whatever Wendy has proposed and promised me, she has now already delivered. Wendy always kept me updated on the market situation and the buyers movement so I could have peace of mind. Wendy is absolutely a very experienced, honest, caring and hardworking professional agent. I don't think I can thank her enough with my words. If you are thinking about selling/leasing your property, I do not have any hesitation and love to recommend Wendy to you because Wendy is the BESTEST AGENT!

Our experience with Catherine was one of the most professional, efficient, friendly, and smooth transactions in real estate one could hope for. In addition to an outstanding and committed attitude to see the sale finalised for both vendor and purchaser, Catherine proved herself to be an honest, hard working and warm person. We would highly recommend Catherine for future real estate needs and thank her again for the easy and open communication in which she provided. Exceptional service and seamless transaction.

An Excellent Agent.
Catherine Hawkins was successful in selling a property for me 12 years ago and I was then most impressed with her expertise and professionalism. Therefore, when I decided to sell this present property, I didn't hesitate to ask Catherine to market it for me, which she did with a most satisfactory outcome. Her knowledge of the real estate market conveys a sense of confidence and security to her client, all with a caring and friendly manner.

Jacqui Mulligan and her team at R&W North Sydney provide an excellent service and I am pleased to recommend them highly. Jacqui recently leased my property within a short period of time and for a good market rent. I especially appreciated Jacqui's attention to detail and responsiveness to my questions throughout the process of leasing my property. Even when she was on annual leave, Jacqui kept in touch with me to make sure everything went smoothly. Her professionalism and commitment to achieving a strong result were much appreciated and I would definitely recommend R&W to others seeking to lease their property.

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 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 :)

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.

Catherine is a knowledgeable and dedicated real estate agent. Catherine put a lot of effort into selling my investment unit for me - the Saturday opens, private viewings, liaising with the tenant, answering the email enquiries and the follow ups as well as the extra assistance she gave the novice buyer. Her efforts have meant I achieved an excellent price for my unit in a relatively short time.

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.
