Simon was a pleasure to deal with & our whole experience was extremely positive throughout the entire purchasing process. Simon liaised with our Buyers Agent & was accommodating of us viewing the property outside the usual showing times, always contactable & promptly forth coming with information & answers to any questions. We always found Simon to be professional & sincere.
I believe there are some expert differences that make a quality real estate agent and I have been fortunate in my choice to use Julia & Simon of Astemi Property to sell my home of 25 years: great communication; they’re motivated; they go above and beyond; and it doesn’t end with the sale – they are helping me find my next home. I would thoroughly recommend them to any potential seller.
In short, our experience surpassed expectations in every way. We felt as though we were Simon’s most valuable client at all times and at no time did we ever get the impression that he was focused on anything other than selling our unit for the best possible price. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Simon and the Astemi team to anyone looking to sell their property.
We became the first clients of Astemi Property. Throughout the process, Simon and Julia’s extensive industry experience was apparent, though more importantly, their approach went beyond just “meeting the brief". Their fee structure, as well as being competitive, was structured to incentivise the outcome. Astemi exceeded our expectations.
From the very outset, we were impressed with the service Simon Hardaker offered and then, more importantly, delivered. His strategic approach to the marketing and final sale of the house paid dividends and we were very, very pleased with the final result. His ‘team’ of handymen, gardener and cleaner made light work of all that needed to be done.
Simon was great, highly professional. He organised everything in a highly efficient manner, often taking the initiative, that only comes from years of experience and a complete understanding of what is required. His dedication meant we had little to do - very important as we live far away. We would use him again without hesitation.
The lengths he went to, to advise us through the whole process of selling as well as helping us in the purchase of our next property were outstanding. We certainly felt that we were the centre of his attention leading up to and during the sale campaign Not only did he drive the campaign hard, but his approachable interaction with both of us was greatly valued.
I would like to recommend Simon Hardaker as an excellent Real Estate Agent. He and his team have at all times been very competent and efficient, handling any inquiry I have had with promptness and giving me peace of mind. He has also shown excellent insight into human nature. He made the Sale process as easy as possible for everyone concerned.
We had 4 agents appraise our most recent home. Simon provided the highest appraisal price range and then sold the property within that price range. He was always available and nothing was too much. It is rare to find an agent who is trustworthy and always acts in your best interests, which is why we have used him twice to sell our homes.
Simon & Julia demonstrated themselves to be diligent, professional, principled and, ultimately, effective. Throughout the process, my husband & I consistently felt that Simon & Julia were working with us and for us. They have integrity. They went to great lengths to assist us in the preparation, including assisting in the appointment of tradespeople.
The whole process was seamless and I felt totally in the loop the whole time. His advice and experience was invaluable in helping me achieve what I believe was a great outcome. I doubt any of the new breed of "twitter" real estate agents would have gotten this outcome. I would not hesitate to recommend you.
Their expertise and advice was always professional and backed by examples from other properties and customers they had worked with in the past. I have worked with other agencies but their professionalism and attentiveness set a new benchmark. Thank you for everything and can only hope I have the opportunity to work with you again.
