Shane & Frances from Locale were the selling agents for my property at Russell Lea. As i was a bit nomadic and without a car during the time of the sale, they did all those things that made life easier for me.eg, going to water the garden and also sweeping the front of the property. During the time the property was on the market,Shane kept me well informed about the progress of the campaign. I was satisfied with the people they recommended for photography and styling. At all times the service i received from Locale was friendly, helpful and professional.
We have had our Abbotsford rental property managed by Joe and his team at Locale Realty since 2000. Therefore, It was an obvious choice to have them manage the sale of our property in 2016. The management of the campaign and attention given to prospective buyers was excellently handled and resulted in a successful auction with the sale price in excess of our expectations. Communication with us by Joe and his team was also excellent and we always felt informed of progress and potential buyers.
Thank you very much for your hard work and dedication in the successful sale of our home. I realise that it was a challenge and appreciate how you handled it and us ! LOL we are celebrating at Nicks at darling harbour with the lovely view and ambience. Thanks again and we’ll touch base soon.
We were kept well informed with great concise information, followed by great advice, with the final result beyond our expectations. Even in a very uncertain and negative market Shane and Frances achieved an extra $56,000 over a previous sale,due no doubt to their hard work and positive approach. We are delighted with the result and will be recommending them to our friends, in fact we have already. thank You again.
Following several interviews with other agents in the area, we chose Shane and Frances whom we felt understood our needs, and demonstrated the experience and personal attention we required.The attention to detail that they demonstrated prior to us signing with them made us feel very confident that they were the agents for us. This confidence was not unfounded as they kept well informed through regular phone calls etc which placed us in a very comfortable position when any decision needed to be made. They conducted the sale of our property in a timely fashion and very much to our satisfaction as we achieved a great price and this was all done with a pleasant and confident manner.Shane and Frances thank you, you were great to work with.
My wife and I have just successfully sold our home through Shane Howley and Frances Rupolo. A different factor in the success of our sale was the personalities and fastidious diligence of Shane and Frances. We would gladly recommend Shane and Frances and should we ever need the services of a selling agent, would not hesitate to engage them again.
Very happy with the result. i was on the market with another agent prior to listing my home with Shane & Frances. I chose to relist with Locale Property Agents as they had sold a similar three bedroom unit in my complex for a record price of $955,000 which was $140,000 above recent comparable sales with-in my complex and i wanted a similar record breaking result. Shane and Frances delivered a result beyond my expectations and which exceeded the previous offers by $75,000. They are the best value agents in the area and i couldn’t recommend them highly enough.
Shane & Frances from Locale Property Agents were extremely personable and professional.Their initial presentation was well put together, their manner and levels of communication first class.
The work ethic displayed by both Shane & Frances in organising the sale of our property is to be commended. Advice given by the Locale property team before and during the auction was in our best interests at all time. I would recommend Locale Property Agents.
Dear Joseph and Frances , Thanks for all your help over the years.
I can honestly say that i never thought i would be writing this letter.All my previous dealings with real estate agents (& i use that title loosely). whether purchase or sale of property or management of investment property have been far from a satisfactory experience for my wife and I.
We want to thank you for selling our waterfront property at Rhodes and i am glad to say that as a agent that you are a credit to your profession.
from our first encounter some 9 months ago when you sold a property in our street until sale, you have kept us informed and the interaction was way above any level we had previously experienced.At no time where we left wondering what was happening in the market or with any potential purchaser. As we have been traveling around Australia with a time difference of anything from 1 & 1/2 to 3 hours in daylight saving, that has meant you calling us 7-8 Sydney time to give us a report on inspections, open houses or simply to give us updates of any market movements.
A professional performance in line with what we expected but have never before received.
We wish you all the best for the future.
Michael & Carole Day
The purchasers were so impressed with Shane they provided a special testimonial to praise his efforts. This is a rare offering and represents a formidable approach to Locale Property Agents high level all round customer service.
Shane and the Locale team are professional and delivered the result above expectations. Shane put in hard yakka to prepare the sale. He has put in 100 per cent in both of our property sales.We warmly recommend him for his tremendous dedication and meticulous approach.
The manner locale property Agents showed with Shane, Frances & Joe was highly professional. Constantly informed in my property interest, buyers comments and feedback. the final result surpassed our expectations.friendly, reliable, hard working, along with a straight forward approach. I will recommend them to my friends anytime.
Locale Property agents Frances & Shane made it a happy experience of having to market & sell my home. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They were good value for money worthy of my recommendation.
A deep appreciation to both Shane & Frances from Locale Property. They sold the property above our reserve price.Their professionalism put us in no doubt that we made the right choice of agent.
Sold In 30 days made our client successfully commit to a much loved property locally.
Penthouse apartments bought by investors and those buyers looking to downsize.
This special client bought this property several years ago from Locale Property Agents and resold this home by auction through Locale Property Agents
A well versed auction netting four registrations and securing a great result for this cute californian bungalow. The vendors were overseas and had the finger on the pulse with the agents advice.
This is a brand new apartment located in a busy unit development area. The sale finally concluded by private treaty has several unsuccessful purchasers looking for the next opportunity.call Locale Property Agents for a free market appraisal.
Major development site launched at the 2014 Ferrgosto produced several off the plan sales
A persistent approach to a modern day private treaty sale. Well done.
Post auction sale achieved a great result. Abbotsford Cove has been leading the way with price rises by using the agent with the locale knowledge and experience in auction marketing.
A well budgeted marketing campaign for auction with a top line auction result. In between all this was a good negotiator with charisma.
Abbotsford Cove’s most successful auction start for 2015.The property was sold $250,000 above the reserve. Joseph had managed the property for several years. Great management and great selling.
Joseph & Frances sold our old family home at auction.The service was exceptional and the result was commendable.We appreciate the olde school approach with a modern day auction campaign.
We were very pleased with the result achieved for our property… we sought the services of a number of agents to assist with the sale our property, Shane was the standout as he actually delivered on what he promised.
The level of detail Shane sourced from the inspections led to an accurate prediction of the number of registered bidders we had on auction day, which in turn led to the excellent price achieved
Shane and Frances were very professional throughout the whole ‘journey’ and very understanding of the sentiments felt by the various vendors of our family home. At the first meeting with them to discuss their approach to the sale they provided us with lots of information and figures as to the strategies that could be used to assist with the decision making with the aim of maximising a final selling price; they were obviously very well informed and demonstrated a depth of knowledge and experience above their competitors. We would have no hesitation in recommending Shane and Frances.
We would like to thank you and Frances for the fantastic (and epic) job you did of selling our home in Leichhardt. You were able to get a good rapport with buyers and we were constantly amazed at how much information you seemed to get out of them. After a couple of weeks the buyers you had promised us were out there. We cant express how grateful we are to you and Frances for the fantastic help and support you were throughout the process. We would definitely sell with you again and have already been recommending you to anyone who needs an agent.
We write to express our sincere thanks and to highly recommend Shane Howley as a sales agent. We had been somewhat reluctant to sell our property in Five in a very uncertain climate in the property market. When we finally made our decision to sell we were intent on employing the right agent. Shane constantly kept us informed and at times went above and beyond the call of duty to effect the sale. Shane is an excellent agent and we would have no hesitation in employing him again if we decide to sell another property.
I cannot speak too highly of the team at Locale Property Agents. When Shane and Frances arrived punctually on my doorstep, the first time they had already analysed the local market and had a list of recently sold properties in the area that were comparable to mine. The price attained was a record for my type of property in the area, $63,000 over reserve. I would not hesitate to recommend them to be chosen to market your home.
A big thank you to both you and Frances on the successful sale of our long time family propert. The enthusiasm around the auction was outstanding, we had a large crowd and active bidders who ultimately exceeding our expectations regarding price. This great price eased some of the trepidations involved with selling the house and brought our family together during what was a difficult time. Thank you again for all your valuable help.
Before Shane Howley sold our house we believed that all real estate agents were a necessary evil. We questioned the value that a real estate agent brought to the selling process, did they really do much else other than advertise your property and stand at the front door on open days and take names? Our auction result of $30,000 over the reserve demonstrates that the right agent can achieve your dream price and do it with integrity. Our investment in Shane paid off and we were ecstatic with the outcome of our auction. We would strongly recommend Shane any day.
Right from the outset it was obvious that Shane had done meticulous research on our area, providing us with historical and up to date sales information. Shane regularly kept us up to date and it was clear to see that Shane’s availability to, and follow up, of prospective buyers was leaving nothing to luck. Just as well, as luck had dealt us an interest rate rise and headlines screaming “Global Recession” and “Crashing House Prices” the week prior to auction. In the end I believe the price achieved was a direct result of Shane’s professionalism, knowledge, skill and commitment. For that I am extremely grateful.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the way in which you managed the selling campaign and subsequent sale of my former home. You were thoroughly professional yet down to earth and sensitive to my family’s situation. At no stage did I feel that you were only acting as a salesman, I actually feel that you went above and beyond the scope of our contract and I cannot express my deepest appreciation.I never thought I would be writing a letter of thank you to a Real Estate Agent but you were more than that and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to prospective vendors.
Jo and I would like to thank you for helping us purchase our beautiful new home and then selling two of our properties. We were amazed at how quickly our Ashfield apartment sold and at the asking price. And then came the auction campaign for the Five Dock property; opening the apartment, managing and following up all the visitors to ensure we had a good attendance which in turn led to a successful result and a price that was above our expectations, no matter how demanding the situation was.
