Testimonials

On several occasions while looking at properties and meeting both Simon and Julia We decided that if we were ever going to sell that we would engage Astemi. This is due to their professionalism and respectful manner in how they conduct business. We recently sold our property off market and couldn’t have been happier with their service, communication and honesty. We found many agents like to “talk the talk” but Julia and Simon are probably the most normal and easy to deal with real estate agents. You know exactly where you stand with price guides and fees. And we think that they certainly go above and beyond when it comes to selling a property. We were so impressed after selling our property that we engaged them to find us the next place which they did. We can’t recommend them more.

Simon and Gabby were fantastic to work with. Both professional and friendly making the sale of our apartment easy and stress free. I would highly recommend them!

Alex Kulmar

Simon (and Julia) was amazing to work with form our first contact. They were highly professional, respectful and communicated clearly with us every step of the way. Their sense of price was spot on and we were very happy with the outcome. Simon went way beyond what was required and at no time did we feel pressured to make a quick decision. I would highly recommend them.

Gabrielle Duffy

I have recently sold for a second time with Simon and the team at Astemi. On both occasions Simons advice was clear, realistic and accurate. On both occasions Simon was able to achieve a sale result over my expectations. His communication was clear, regular and at all times professional. I have no hesitation in recommending Simon and his team and will definitely sell again with them in the future.

Adam Hobbs

Finding an agent to help us prepare and sell our mother's house was a challenge for us. We chose Simon because he was approachable, honest and offered us a more personal and collaborative service than that of the big agencies. Simon worked hard with his team to help us prepare and present the house. He communicated with us throughout the process and as the sale time came closer he managed the process in a way which was relaxed yet clearly underpinned by his experience and professionalism. In a difficult market, Simon got us a price which met our best expectations. I unhesitatingly recommend Simon and the Astemi team.

We highly recommend Simon and the team at Astemi Property to sell your home. From our first meeting, through the opens and handling of enquiries from potential buyers - nothing was ever a problem. Being a smaller agency their customer service is excellent and a key difference with the big agencies. And we got an excellent result at auction from a buyer who Simon went out of his way to show the property last minute on the day of the auction.

Rebecca Peacock

Simon helped me every step of the way. He provided daily updates during the sales campaign and assisted wherever possible. I will definitely seek advice from Astemi Property in any future property transactions.

Simon was highly recommended for his integrity, so naturally I found working with him a pleasure. His initiative & professionalism was much appreciated - thank you for our great result team Astemi!

Lesley Audova

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.

Dan & Kate Jones

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.

Gina O’Neil

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.

Sohum & Sonia Gandhi

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
