" 8 Madeline Street, Hunters Hill "
Matthew and Claire Ward proved themselves to be valuable and trusted real estate agents in respect of the sale of our home at Hunters Hill. We were very pleased with the selling price they achieved for us, particularly given the challenging real estate market we faced at the time. The initial sales campaign was prepared and executed efficiently with signage, website coverage, brochures and card mail-outs all undertaken in short order. Throughout the sales campaign, Matthew remained positive and always kept us informed of any prospective purchasers and the offers they made and we felt confident that his professional advice was soundly based. The final sales price achieved met our expectations and was within the price range Matthew had set at the outset of our sales campaign. We would not hesitate to recommend Matthew and Claire Ward as real estate agents to anyone who was contemplating selling their property. Murray & Lisa

Dear Matthew, I am writing to thank you for the work you did to achieve the sale of our house earlier this month. In a difficult market and close to Christmas you managed to generate interest from several potential buyers and the house was sold quickly after the auction. As you are aware we used Ward Partners before back in 1999 and that time your father was our main contact. This time you and Claire managed the process and although as the seller we could never admit to being totally happy with the price, the fact that a sale occurred so rapidly was a result of the energy you brought to the exercise. We appreciated you keeping us informed constantly about the steps you were taking to bring about a successful outcome. Your detailed knowledge of the residential market in Hunters Hill made you a logical choice for us to use and we are glad we made that decision. I am sure that Ward Partners will continue to serve the local community honourably and effectively for many years to come. Thanks and kind regards, Ian & Lyn Horton

I recently had the pleasure of engaging Ward Partners to not only manage but also sell an investment property. The sale process itself was effortless on my part. Ward Partners exemplary management of the promotion and advetising of the property led to a result far in excess of expectations. From my perspective the entire process was managed expertly to ensure a more than satisfactory, and more importantly, stress-free result. It is without hesitation that i recommend Ward Partners a property managers and selling agents. Regards, Lee Hagipantelis

Dear Matthew and Claire, We can’t thank you enough for helping us through the sale of our home in Hunters Hill. You have both handled the complex task with grace and professionalism which has been brilliant for us at such a nerve wracking and emotional time. We had confidence in your knowledge and years of experience, while your honest evaluation of the market and realistic approach have been invaluable in the process.We really appreciated your lovely personal and positive attitude along with practical guidance, and advice. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with you both, and don’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone considering buying or selling. Sincerely, Bridget & Peter
" 23 Edmondson Street, North Ryde "
Dear Matt and Claire, Thank you so much for your help in selling our North Ryde property last month. I think what made the real difference for us was the way in which you negotiated the final deal as we were getting down to the wire. I know that a number of our neighbours and friends were curious why we chose to go with an out-of-area agent and my gut feeling at the time was that in this day of internet alerts and universal access to information, any agent could run a basic advertising campaign and pull interested parties to the open houses. What was going to make the difference for us was what happened with the buyers once they’d seen – what we though, was a very special property in the area. Dave and I appreciated the way you kept us updated with the status of the people who’d expressed interest in the property and the communication lines that you made available to each of the possible buyers. The decision to negotiate a deal the week prior to action, due to the miserable weather forecast for Auction Day was also something I would never have considered to be a factor in real estate strategy, but ended up being a critical element to our final result. And your skill in managing the final negotiations, without getting anyone offside, but securing for us a very good, almost record price for the area, was what really set Ward Partners apart from other agents. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ward Partners to anyone considering selling their property and would also make the strong point that having an out of area agent with strong negotiating skills, is a much more valuable asset than relying on local agents who only have experience in one small neighbourhood. Thank you again, Emma and David.
" 23 Abigail Street, Hunters Hill "
Dear Matthew and Claire, Dad and I would like to thank you for the fantastic job you did on selling 23 Abigail Street. You were the first agents we spoke to and we knew from our first meeting with you that there was no need to look any further. You met all our requests, offered useful advice and then guided us through the campaign with calm expertise, always with excellent communication, leaving us feeling at all times that we were one team. But most of all we would like to thank you for realising the true value of the house and in doing so achieving the outstanding result, beyond our expectations. It was a delight dealing with you both and we wish you all the very best for the future. Kind Regards John and Alan Finnan
" 5 Serpentine Road, Hunters Hill "
Dear Matthew, We are within weeks of our big move and before things get out of control we wanted to take the time to thank you formally for your efforts over the last six months or so. Firstly for the sale of Serpentine Road. The sale was swift and caused little disruption to our family’s life. The thought of going through a formal marketing exercise and having all of Hunters Hill through our home was daunting. The fact you were able to bring a buyer to the table so quickly, without any advertising and at a price that we were happy with was a pleasant relief. Secondly, we appreciated the way you brought together the purchase of Madeline Street. As I recall we were the very first buyers through the door and whilst we fell in love with the home immediately as you know there were some timing issues and hurdles for us to get over - but we got there ! We will miss Serpentine Road but are truly excited at the prospect of many happy years in “Kyarra”. Matthew, we have now had three deals together in recent years and whilst we have always enjoyed our dealings we hope the next time we do business is a long way down the track. Thank you for your assistance, guidance and friendship. See you on the tennis court ! Kind regards,

We have recently had the satisfaction of engaging Matthew Ward and his team to sell our home in Hunters Hill. In fact, this was the third occasion, during our 15 years in Hunters Hill, that we have dealt with the Ward team. On each of these three occasions we have been impressed with the calibre of the Ward team, striving for the desired outcome. At all times, we could not fault their integrity, professionalism, helpfulness and friendly approach. Their attention to detail is commendable and their knowledge of the market and locality is impressive. While we have for now moved out of the Hunters Hill area, we maintain strong ties to the area, and we are assured of Matthew keeping us informed of future prospects, on both a professional and friendly basis. Well done team, on a job well done. You are to be congratulated on your profile both locally and in the wider property market. Thank you once again, The Bartons.
