From the very beginning Simon and Julia provided us with their personal attention. Preparing the house and over the course of the campaign, their communication was regular, open and honest. The advice provided by Astemi Property was timely, accurate, providing information on the local market, the good, bad and ugly about our property and insights into what potential buyers may be thinking. With a lot of effort and skill we ended up with a result we were very happy with. We had no regrets or doubts about the sales process that we went through, and did not feel pressured into making rash decisions along the way. For a professional and personalised service, and likely a great sale price, we would thoroughly recommend using Julia and Simon.
Simon, Jules & Gabby were professional the whole way through the sale of our family home of 17 years. They were caring & considerate of our needs & were also frank & straight forward when needed, which we appreciated. There were many extras that they did without us needing to ask & they worked tirelessly & diligently throughout the whole sale time. It was the best experience that we have had with realestate agents.
Simon Hardaker and his team operate in a professional, honest and transparent manner. Not always do you find such qualities in big city real estate transactions. Both the vendor and the buyer are important to Simon and his team.
We are delighted with our recent purchase of a home in Fairlight. Although it was an extremely stressful experience, we were continuously assisted by the professional experience and local knowledge of Simon Hardaker and Julia Laaman. Both agents acted above and beyond the usual call of duty. We would highly recommend this boutique agency, if one is looking for individual and personalised service
From the moment we called you to discuss selling our property in Stuart St Manly; you presented a realistic, promising, honest appraisal of our chances in today’s market. You also matched this with a great campaign plan, enthusiasm and dedicated hard work. You worked to our best outcome first but you also assisted prospective buyers to solve their problems and thus overcome any reticence they might have had to purchasing the property.
We couldn’t have asked for a better experience in selling our home. Simon & Julia were the ultimate professionals and absolutely spot on with their market knowledge and advice. We got the right guidance, outstanding support, and ultimately the right offer for our home. We had a good feeling from the moment we met and we can’t thank you enough!
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.
