" 13/56 Wrights Road, Drummoyne "
To Whom It May Concern, Claire acted for us in the sale of our property at Wrights Road, Drummoyne. During this time Claire did an excellent effort bringing buyers to view the property with good follow up. Despite a falling market at no time did she get discouraged and successfully found a buyer who was prepared to meet our asking price. We were traveling overseas during the preparation of the property and Claire was extremely helpful in arranging new painting, new carpet and property styling on our behalf. Saving both time and money. Claire is an honest person and tells you up front what the situation is. Claire makes sure both buyer and seller trust her. Tom and I wouldn't hesitate to put another property in her care. Robyn Wilmot

In September 2017, we retained Ward Partners of Hunters Hill to market and sell our newly renovated four bedroom waterfront unit in Drummoyne. After completing the interview process we concluded that Ward Partners, specifically Claire and Matthew Ward, were our first choice to assist in the sale of our property. Once selected Claire and Matthew delivered on all their promises. Their thorough follow up gave us a high level of confidence in the process. We have bought and sold several properties in recent years and in doing so dealt with a range of real estate agents and would say that Ward Partners compared favourably with all those other agencies. We have no hesitation recommending Claire and Matthew Ward. Ken Lockery.

Dear Claire, I would like to say a big thank you for the manner in which you handled the sale of my unit. I was dreading the process but was pleasantly surprised when you brought six or seven potential buyers through the unit. It wasn’t that long afterwards that one of them agreed a contract to purchase. Thank you, too, for your advice about various requirements connected with the sale.You are the most friendly estate agent I have ever met. Moving isn’t fun but I appreciated your efforts to make it as easy as possible. Thanks Claire Pat Crowe
" 18A Drummoyne Avenue, Drummoyne "
Dear Claire and Matthew, Ross and I would like to express our sincere thanks and congratulations for selling our properties at 9D Wrights Road, Drummoyne and 18A Drummoyne Avenue, Drummoyne. Both properties were sold in such a short period in a market where there has been considerable market negativity and we are delighted with both excellent outcomes. From the outset we found you to be willing to listen to our opinions and expectations and we were able to form a relationship of mutual respect and co-operation which resulted in a stress free marketing period. Refreshingly you did not promise an unrealistic outcome instead you worked extremely hard and efficiently to deliver a wonderful outcome all the time keeping us included and making us feel "special"and not just another vendor. We would highly recommend Ward Partners to anyone who is selling in the area and are happy to act as referees if required. Kindest regards, Susan Benger
" 44 Woolwich Road, Hunters Hill "
I should like to place on record the extent of my esteem for Ward Partners and particularly for Claire and Matthew Ward. In early October, 2014, I made a decision to place my home of 40 years on the market that Spring and, without any warning, asked Ward Partners to be my agents and work out a marketing plan for this to happen. I had previously interviewed all the major estate agents working in Hunters Hill and worked out, by a process of elimination, which one was best suited. As it happened Matthew and Claire Ward, met the highest standards one could possibly hope for in all of the above criteria and more. Although I had only allowed a little over three weeks to get my house ready, I had their full and utter co-operation in achieving this. I achieved a price way beyond what other agents had proposed (hundreds of thousands, in fact) and within a few thousands of my “dream price”. This was prior to auction, so I was saved from that gruelling experience. Since then the Wards have kept in touch to make sure I am managing the packing and leaving phase. Their approach has always been friendly, helpful and accommodating and our communication so good that I feel I have made life-time friends. I am totally happy with the whole process of selling my house and propose, with total confidence, that anyone considering the same should place their trust and their business with Ward Partners.

Dear Claire, I couldn’t let the year wrap up without getting this letter to you. In relation to selling our beloved apartment in Tranmere Street earlier in the year we just wanted to say Thank You! Having sold two apartments in our block already and knowing we were thinking about a move you suggested it may be possible to sell our place for a great price with little to no fuss. Given how busy we both are we were really temped by this idea however… only at a certain price. You understood what number it would take to move us and given your experience and existing relationships with the buyers in the market you were able to achieve it after just one inspection. It was literally that easy! I would have no hesitation in recommending you to prospective clients, your approach with buyers and sellers alike is straight forward, passionate and knowledgeable and we really enjoyed our experience with you. While we didn’t have to spend any money on marketing, awesome, we have always thought your brand stands out locally in comparison to that of your competitors. I know the new owners are happy there, we do miss Drummoyne however we also enjoying the beach! Best, Scott & Amber Kelly
" 5 Edwin Street, Drummoyne "
Dear Claire and Matthew, A few words regarding the wonderful job you both did in selling 5 Edwin Street, Drummoyne. When we decided to sell our first family home in Drummoyne after 14 years, we did all the due diligence a vendor should do. We met with several real estate agents, prepared the house for sale and had a good understanding of current market performance and how that married with our expectations / property. We just needed to find the right agent. From our first meeting with Ward Partners it was clear they were the stand out agency. The most persuasive factor in choosing Ward Partners was the honesty and integrity that Claire and Matthew bring to the table. There is no doubt they are experts in the business of real estate but what makes Ward Partners exceptional is the honesty and integrity with which they do business. Rarely found in this industry. They provided excellent advice on how to best present the home and went to great lengths to ensure the photography and marketing was second to none. The inner west is a highly competitive marketplace and I really felt that our property stood out, even the signboard was beautiful and set a tone that we were a premium product to the street and the buyers coming through the door. The entire sales process from first open home to settlement was smooth and stress free. Without hesitation we would recommend Claire and Matthew Ward from Ward Partners to anyone thinking of selling their property - they simply are the best in the market. Warm regards, Jason & Julie Yee

Dear Claire, Just a short note to thank you for your time, effort and skill in selling my Drummoyne unit. People hear stories of sellers being stressed, anxious, tense and hassled when selling their property, you made the experience as pleasant as a stroll in the park in springtime. This of course does not happen by chance, you exhibited true expertise, in placing a true and achievable selling price on my unit which must come from your and the other Wards excellent knowledge of the Drummoyne market, and your proficiency and know how in marketing the property which led to the successful sale of the unit, all within the marketing time agreed, all of which adds up to true professionalism. Should I be in the market again either as buyer or seller Ward Partners would be my choice of agent. Colin Williamson
" 2/76 Lyons Road, Drummoyne "
We recently sold our Drummoyne home with Claire Ward, and achieved an excellent result. When searching for an estate agent, we were very impressed by Ward Partners transparency and open and honest approach. Claire and Matthew Ward were professional and capable, and demonstrated genuine care and consideration in everything they did. Claire took the time to explain things, and kept us well informed all the way through the process. This was really important to us as first time sellers. Claire went out of her way to help us where ever she could, and her advice regarding the finishing touches and displaying our property really paid off. We would recommend Ward Partners to anyone buying or selling as we were impressed by their willingness to go the extra mile to make things easier for us, and to achieve the best result possible. Kind regards, Jesse and Anna
" Delmar Parade, Gladesville "
Thankyou for your guidance during our sale process. When you are selling the family home…this is such an emotional time. The exercise of downsizing furniture and long held possessions is in itself not easy. We always felt relaxed and not at all pressured in the preparation stage. Once our home was on the market you both gave generously of your time with inspections going long over the advertised time. Also we were surprised that there were multiple inspections on other days organised to fit in with inspection times requested by people who could not make the open times. This is probably why the time on the market was so short 23?? Days. Once again our thanks for your professionalism and expertise…we are sure our prospective buyers also appreciated the efficient way you put the 8 offers to us. We could recommend Ward and Partners with 100% confidence to anyone who is pondering …how could they ever go through this process… Thanks to all at Wards.
