"We would like you to know about the excellent and professional service we received from Mrs Lesley Bassam in finding our house. She not only sacrifices her own time, but assessed our needs perfectly and was always positive and friendly. An outstanding feature of Lesley is that although she deals with huge numbers of people going through open houses, the second house of hers that we have visited, she greeted us by our names. This makes one feel special, and important to her and not just another number.Her feedback and advice were prompt and outstanding. We will definitely recommend her to friends.
Thank you very much it was/is a pleasure and comforting feeling to know that our future is more secure through Lesley’s service."

"I wanted to drop you a quick thank you for the hard work and professionalism we have received from Lesley Bassam during the sale of our home and our subsequent purchase of 5 Broula Rd also through your agency.
Lesley has been extremely helpful and accommodating, meeting me at the new property for copious appointments regarding our upgrade of the property when we settle.
Lesley’s communication and attitude have been brilliant and she is a credit to your agency. I felt I should write to you regarding Lesley as she really has made our sale and purchase seamless and a pleasure. Lesley secured the sale of our house in a week and pro actively presented us with 5 Broula Rd after I had mentioned our requirements, and the house was perfect.
We would highly recommend Lesley Bassam to anyone who asked, as an agent who would be honest, work with integrity and provide the feedback you need to sell your home.

Lesley had to deal with exceptional circumstances in this case which included balancing our needs, the needs of the tenants and the needs of the prospective buyers.

“We thank Lesley Bassam and her sales team from Belle Property, very much for their great effort to market and sell our property - 32 Hampden Avenue, Wahroonga NSW 2076. The property was sold in only two weeks after the Belle team took over just before Christmas.
We are very pleased with the advice they gave us, and the result - well done!We originally listed our property with an experienced local agent, but unfortunately he failed to sell it within three months contract period. This had a negative effect on the pricing of our property.When Lesley and her team took over our property, they totally refreshed the marketing and presentation of our home. This appealed to the buyers who were looking for a family home in Wahroonga.
Other local agents also contacted us, but Lesley gave us an accurate price estimate and we were confident in her marketing our property in the correct price range and being able to achieve this price in a short timeframe. We are very happy with our choice of agent, and glad we chose the Belle team.We appreciate Lesley’s tireless efforts in working over the Christmas and New Year period to sell the home. Lesley used the correct marketing strategy, and missed no opportunity to find the right buyer, who appreciated our property.
Lesley’s negotiation skills are outstanding, she achieved a sale price above the estimated price range, making us as vendors, very pleased with the result.Lesley and her team were always enthusiastic and communicated with us throughout the process via written reports and emails, to ensure we were always kept informed. They worked very well with the buyers to achieve us the best possible price.
In general, choose the Belle team – it is the correct choice.”
Joseph Zhu and Jie Wang - 32 Hampden Avenue, Wahroonga
“Peter & I would to take this opportunity to thank you for everything you did with the sale of our house.
Your professionalism, expertise, and above all, your honesty was outstanding, you never lead us to believe anything unrealistic and it was because of this, that we were able to sell our house, very fast, in a slow market.
We want to say it was these qualities that lead us to call you when we were deciding who would sell our family home. It was only because of you that we signed with your agency.
Again thank you for everything and if ever the opportunity rises for us to use your services to sell our new home we will not hesitate to do so.”
Peter & Sally Westley - Monterey Place, St Ives

Jan & Gordon - Saddington Street, Turramurra
“From one who was extremely sceptical of Real Estate Agents, that scepticism, after walking into your office was replaced with optimism and confidence of what would come out of that fortuitous meeting.
I had the pleasure of meeting Lesley Bassam, who from the moment she started explaining the why’s and wherefores of achieving the best possible outcome, had me convinced that your agency was the best place to better display and sell my late father’s home in Roland Avenue, Warrawee.There were no outrageous price put forward to gain the listing, Lesley gave me a solid valuation in line with market and my own expectations.
My father’s property sold in only a couple of weeks and achieved a higher price than I expected.
I have already sung the praises of Lesley and without a moment’s hesitation would recommend her to anyone thinking of selling a property in the region.”
Alasdair Gough - Roland Avenue, Wahroonga

Peter Glasson - Fadden Place, Wahroonga
“I recently concluded the purchase of this property through your agency. In this day and age it is a rare occurrence indeed to encounter a person of the calibre, integrity and intellect of Lesley Bassam. It was not only a highly pleasurable and uplifting experience but it brought in its wake a rekindling of a long lost confidence in human kind.
Even as I write this I am still astounded at the absolute level of genuine sincerity displaced by Lesley Bassam. She was always ensuring that my needs were met and that my comprehension of all issues were fully understood.”
Warren Pynt - George Street, Pennant Hills
"We met Rachel when she was working for another agent and she kept in contact and we built up a
relationship with her. We always found her very friendly but not pushy and she was always willing to give
advice and go the "extra mile". We were impressed by her manner and professionalism.
We would give Rachel 10/10.
We sold "off market" and we were very happy with the result. Rachel was so caring and showed sensitivity
throughout the sale as she knew what a huge step it was for us to sell. She kept us informed at all times and arranged things for us-nothing was any trouble for her to do.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Rachel to anyone as she was genuine and displayed integrity - a quality that is sometimes hard to find!
It was a pleasure dealing with Rachel and we thank her for all that she did for us."
Colleen Mckeown and Eoin Duggan
"Rachel Willetts is 'simply the best'.......... and everyone knows how the rest of the song goes!!
She made the whole process happen so seamlessly and I always felt confident in Rachel's ability to get a great result - which she did.
Ms Anderson - Wahroonga
"I felt like I was the only person Rachel was working for. I feel we developed a close association and trusting relationship."
Mrs Tavener - Wahroonga
"I met Rachel Willetts 2 years previously for a market appraisal through another agency and I was so impressed with her professionalism, her warmth and her excellent communication, that I sought her out at her new office to handle the sale of my property. She was always available for assistance and advice, her communication was excellent, she was extremely thorough in her consultations with prospective buyers and she was genuine in her desire to achieve the best possible result in the sale process. I have no hesitation in recommending Rachel to people intending to sell their property."
Mrs Treseder, Wahroonga
"Rachel was exceptional in all aspects. She knows the market and certainly knows how to sell. She is kind, patient and someone you immediately trust. My solicitor said to me “she is the best Real Estate Agent I have ever worked with” and I agree with him 100%. Only for Rachel I would not have the amount of money I needed to be able to move forward with my next property. She truly is a gem!"
Mrs J Vick
"Rachel Willetts was the sales person I contacted and was pleasantly surprised to meet not your regular Real Estate agent, but someone with a thoughtful and professional attitude towards a prospective customer. I thank her for her attention over and above the usual run of the mill Real Estate representative."
Mrs K Alcorn
"In Rachel Willetts we appointed a superb sales person. Living in our local area, Turramurra, she understood the context extremely well. More importantly however, it was her servant approach that most impressed. She was always on time for appointments, available for telephone access outside normal business hours, and even offered to help clean when a purchaser wanted to inspect our property at short notice. She provided expert advice on preparing our property for sale and was most empathetic to our pressures in having to remove over 40 years of accumulated belongings from the property within the tight deadlines. I would warmly recommend friends to approach Rachel first when considering changes to their Real Estate."
Dr G Pratt
"The professional service I have received has been of a very high standard. Rachel has been efficient, courteous, and willing to ‘go the extra mile’. This has meant that a stressful, challenging time has run seamlessly and smoothly. Thank you!"
"We were approached by Ed Mooney in early 2016 about selling our home. At the time we thought the market on the Upper North Shore had softened, so we were a little skeptical that Ed could obtain a good sale price, however Ed was confident, so we signed an exclusive 3 month agreement. Within 24 hours Ed had organised all the marketing material, liaised with our conveyancer and had prospects inspecting our home. Right from the start, Ed together with his colleague were on the job and working diligently on marketing our property. During this time Ed worked tirelessly and kept us up to date with developments throughout the process, often taking our phone calls late into the night.In just over 6 weeks, Ed sold our property for what we believe to be a premium price, so we were overjoyed with the result - we really thought that the sale price was outstanding given that the market had slowed quite a lot. We highly recommend Ed Mooney - he is not only a thorough professional, but a really nice bloke."
Michael Cuda and Anne-Marie Newham
"I would like to endorse Mr Ed Mooney, for the professional manner in which conducted the recent Sale of a residential propert , for a member of our family in West Pymble. At all times throughout the process, Ed kept us thoroughly informed of any developments and details of the prospective buyers. He was able to negotiate a very satisfactory outcome, prior to Auction. Ed promised an uncompromising service commitment to us prior to Listing and was able to deliver on those promises. In fact, Ed went above and beyond our expectations.I commend Ed to any prospective Vendor or Purchaser of Domestic Real Estate in the Pymble area."
"We met Ed in an open house inspection. We are very much impressed by his professionalism and enthusiasm. He is knowledgeable about the local area and more importantly, he gave us a very good introduction of the local community as a local Pymble residence. Ed's timely communication also helped to close the deal on a fair price for both the seller and the buyer. The experience was amazing with all the help and efforts from Ed. Thanks to Ed and his team."
Gordon & Leeza
"I am writing to give Ed Mooney my highest recommendation. Ed has been extremely helpful and enthusiastic for guiding me through the process of settle my first property at Bobbin Head Road, Pymble. Ed possesses all the attributes necessary to be an excellent real estate agent: he knows local market extremely well; he is very responsive, and yet very patient with his clients. Ed is both very professional and personable. He clearly takes pride in doing a good job. In my particular case as a buyer of a home, I received exceptional service from him and I could not have asked for a better agent to guide me through the process. In the end, I can't thank you enough for your professionalism, expertise and hard work in helping me find my home in Sydney."
"Dear Ed, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for selling our property in Pymble. From our first meeting you impressed us with your experience and desire to help us in any way to bring about the best possible outcome. We especially appreciate that you were sensitive to how difficult it was for Mum to sell after being in the family home for close on 60 years. We will always be grateful for the time and effort you took to find us our new home which is just perfect for our needs. At every stage of the process you were there to provide honest and reliable information and to guide us in making informed decisions about how best to proceed. Thank you for the support on open house inspection days and keeping us abreast of interest in the property. Sincere thanks to you for the help and support on the day of the auction. The advertising campaign was very successful with a great turnout and we were thrilled with the result of the sale. Best wishes Ed for continued success in the real estate business."
Carolyn Clark on behalf on the LeCompte family
"We chose Ed Mooney to handle the sale of our Pymble Home early 2014. Ed is a Pymble local and knew the area and knew precisely how to market our four bedroom home. The Auction Marketing Campaign went exceptionally well with huge numbers viewing at the “opens” (60 groups came through at the first Open). There were 14 registered bidders on Auction day. Ed guided us through the “campaign” very enthusiastically, keeping us informed, in detail, of every interested party giving us feedback and encouragement. We felt completely confident in Ed’s professionalism and integrity. We were most impressed by his diligence during this time. The auction achieved a result far higher than we anticipated and we feel this was very much due to Ed Mooney’s conscientious efforts."
Geoff & Rosemary
"We are very happy to recommend Ed, based on our recent experience selling our home in Pymble. Following the decision to sell, we interviewed a number of Agents. They were all professional, but there was an instant connection with Ed. He presented himself as an enthusiastic, likeable, professional agent with our best interests in mind. He distinguished himself by providing quality service, attention to detail, being available 24/7 and their “never say never” attitude. We always felt he was representing our best interests during the negotiation stages of the sale, while at the same time establishing a position of trust with the buyers. This is a fine line and he handled it superbly. We are especially pleased with the fabulous price he achieved, which was a record price for the Street. For a genuine, personalised service we could not fault Ed. When considering that selling a house means you are going to be in daily contact with an agent for at least four weeks, it helps greatly to find one you like and respect. We have no hesitation in recommending Ed Mooney."
Debra & Denis
"Dear Ed, We would like to thank you for your outstanding effort in achieving such a great result for the sale of our home. Without you we would not have received such a quick sale at a premium price. Your advice was always sound and your enthusiasm boundless. We felt like you were truly listening to us and keeping us informed every step of the way. You were available to answer all our questions and went above and beyond when it came to presenting the house in a favourable light. The market campaign was well managed and we were able to contribute our feedback on the copy and photos used. It felt like we were still in control of the process which was very important to us. After only one open house, you followed up with over sixty interested parties and achieved a great sale price within a week. This meant that we did not have to worry about further open houses and could concentrate on the purchases of our new home. You are a true professional, always courteous and kind. We would have no hesitation in recommending your skills to any potential clients. Thanks again!"
