Another Happy Client

I would like to thank you for the way you and your team handled the sale of our property.
The property was a very unique item having such a large block with two very different houses on the one block.
It was hard to put a value on this property, and the way you handled the entire project allowing the buyers to set a level for the sale was a very clever and most
acceptable outcome.
The price ended up being not far away from our expectations and you and your team worked very hard in achieving this result.
We are more than pleased with the outcome and look forward to dealing with you again in the future.

Out of town investors

Thanks for selling our investment unit. As out of town investors, you provided a flexible approach in allowing us to have control on the photos and text used in the marketing campaign. Plus supported our decision to Auction instead of Private Treaty. You were always accessible and you kept up to date on how the marketing and open homes were progressing throughout the campaign. We were very pleased with the result.

Hi Andrew,

I know it has been a while but I would like to thankyou for your super fast sale of our property in Marayong. We have been very busy with our move to Newcastle and cant believe 6 months has flown by already.

Staff in your office were very helpful and in particular Ashleigh, she was always on hand when needed. You helped us achieve a quick sale for a reasonable amount of money.

I would have no issues with recomending your service to anyone buying or selling a property in the future.

10 Year Anniversary - Karen and Charlie Zammit!

We would like to congratulate you Andrew on your 10 year anniversary with
Laing and Simmons, and to our 10 year friendship. Who would have believed
that when we walked into your Real Estate office in Marayong to enquire
about the purchase of a block of land, that we would all become such good
friends and that our business worlds would travel so well and so closely
together. A toast to you for another 10 years in business and in friendship.

Best Regards

Charlie and Karen Zammit

A skeptical vendor - 100% satisfied with Laing+Simmons Blacktown

To dear Andrew and all staff at Laing and Simmons Blacktown!

I just wanted to thank you for giving us the opportunity to take the next step into helping my family move onto bigger and better things!
My husband spent years wondering when the right time would be to sell our property! I had given up trying to convince him! We knew people who had given us amazing recommendations towards Andrew and finally my husband decided to take the plunge! Andrew came over and gave us an appraisal! I was extremely sceptic about people lying just get us to sign but after meeting Andrew I felt extremely comfortable in choosing him! He was extremely honest, realistic and kind! To cut the story short our house sold after just three open homes! Three weeks prior to auction date! We sold it at the exact price Andrew said we would get and we are now extremely excited to find our dream home!

I just really wanted to thank you Andrew from the bottom of my heart for not only being our real estate agent but in gaining our trust and your friendship! You were there to answer our calls at any time of day and night including your days of and never lost your patience with us!

I truly will be recommending you to everyone of my friends and anyone else who will be looking to buy an sell!

Buyer - Madeleine

Hi Andrew

We came to see this property today. I was the lady who is having a baby in 11 weeks. Both my Husband (Joe) and I cannot stop talking about that house. There are so many things we love about it. Even the work that needs to be done. BUT honestly it is out of our price range. We are First Home Buyers and when this baby arrives we will have 3 children. We need a 4 bedroom home and we have our Pre approved finance ready to go. We are hoping to buy prior to the First Home Owners Grant ending at the end of the month. Our top end is $450, 000 and we understand this places constraints on "getting a dream home" :) We also would not want to need to do an enormous amount of renovating given how young our children are.

We have been exploring Blacktown area and we really love it. Having lived "inner city" and rented all our lives we thought it would be a massive shift for us, but after today we have really taken to the area.

WE REALLY LIKE YOU!!!! We also have spoken multiple times about today how great you were, how refreshing it was to talk to someone great and how much we trusted you. We thought you were personable, actually cared about people's experience and the big decision it is to buy. We also like how honest and knowledgable you were. We would love to give you our business.

We want to buy, we are ready to go. We just need to find the place. We know we can buy within this price range (in fact from all our Real Estate Mates research) for less than that and we saw a few today. Frankly we discovered we like places with a bit of "character" which this house is bursting with. Fruit Trees, Art Deco exterior… cute bathroom. Etc etc. Mostly what we saw today was highly renovated "brand new" looking places (that we would call sterile) or "dumps."

We are pretty open and only have a couple of "deal breakers"… Mostly 4 bedrooms and ideally two living spaces. (One the kids can mess up, which is why we like the Granny flat so much.)

I understand this is lengthy, but we were really taken by how great you were and wanted to be as honest as we can, hoping you can perhaps help us out with other listings.

Thanks so much

A must read

As landlords with 10 investment properties that stretch from Parramatta to Penrith we now realise the value and savings that can be made by appointing a committed Property Management Agency.

Initially all of our properties were managed with different agencies that had different personnel with varying levels of service and delivery.
Approximately seven years ago we decided to select one Managing Agent to handle all of our properties and began interviewing some 15 agencies throughout Sydney’s Western suburbs and finally appointed Laing + Simmons Blacktown.

From that time forward we have been treated with a very high level of service, minimal tenant vacancies and have continued to experience excellent communication and advice from Andrew Ienna and his experienced team at Laing + Simmons Blacktown.
Their in house procedures and processes are very effective and they have and continue to deliver the outcomes we require from residential property investment at extremely competitive prices.

We would welcome the opportunity to discuss our experiences with Laing + Simmons Blacktown that any future investor or property purchaser may have.

Jordan and Mira Papas - Vendor and buyer!

To whom it may concern;
I would like share my experience with Laing and Simmons realestate Blacktown branch.
My Wife and I decided that we were to sell our house and therefore needed to choose an agent that we felt would do the best possible job in selling our house.
There were several agents in the mix from the more “well known” companies that were vying for our business. Although their arguments were compelling we found that most of them were telling us what we wanted to hear in regards our expectations on price and so forth just to get the listing.
I had Andrew Ienna from Laing and Simmons come over to have a chat about what he could do for us. From the beginning we discussed expectations both ours and his.
We were given a brief on what we could expect what we needed to do to ensure the best possible chance of a sale and what the market activity was currently like.
One of the most difficult things for anybody in these situations to do is be frank and honest as to what a place is really worth and what it will more than likely sell for.
We had constant communication and updates as you would expect from someone with their finger on the pulse which in turn made the whole process very smooth in determining a realistic goal to achieve.
We sold the house within was a reasonable turn around, I like a lot of others know if the place sold too quickly it would leave me wondering whether it was too good a deal for the buyer in which case I would know the agent wasn’t doing his best.
I was so impressed with the service that we received from Andrew and his team that I engaged Andrew in bidding for us at a very high profile auction in which we knew the pressure was on and so was the spotlight! Needless to say we trusted Andrew implicitly to buy our new home in which we were successful in doing!
I can honestly say that the experience could not have been made any better by Andrew and the team at Laing and Simmons Blacktown, we thank them very much.
Kind Regards,
Jordan and Mira.

Colin Neal RE: The sale of 43/130 Reservoir Road Blacktown in 2012

I engaged Laing + Simmons Blacktown to manage the sale of my property at Reservoir Road Blacktown on the recommendation of a business associate. I was very happy with their performance in terms of efficiency of advertising, promotion to and negotiation with prospective buyers, communication on the progress of the sale and eventual sale.

My thanks go to Andrew, Ashleigh and the rest of the team at Laing + Simmons Blacktown and I would recommend their services to any other persons proposing to sell their property.

Max Crowe - a chance meeting that remains a friendship

Max Crowe sold his property after having it with other agents previously. When he met Andrew at the local medical centre they instantly became familiar with each other. Andrew offered to help Max sell the home and it all started there.

In Max's words (via our survey which is attached) The negotiations process was well explained, the support staff were rated as excellent and he would definately recommend us to his friends and family.

Comment: Thank you for the excellent service - house sold faster than expected at an acceptable price well within the range indication Andrew made.

Andrew and Max still keep in contact and we are sure this is a relationship that will be ongoing.
