Rob and the team were highly professional, giving us an honest appraisal and they worked incredibly hard to get the best result on auction day. Rob's team are responsive, friendly, discrete and courteous. They delivered on every promise they made and gave us great advice on preparing the property for sale. Can't recommend them highly enough!
We cannot speak too highly of Robert Clarke and the team at Belle Property Annandale. They have been incredibly professional in every aspect of the sale process for our property and every member of the team has been a pleasure to deal with. Their marketing campaign was outstanding and pretty much everyone who was looking for a 3 bedroom property in Annandale inspected our home (60+ people), multiple contracts were provided to interested buyers and we are very happy with the outcome.
Before listing my property on the market I attended a number of auctions conducted by Rob and his team and was impressed with their professionalism, knowledge of the market and, their ability to not only get the sale over the line but obtain a great price as well. This was evident by the fact that he successfully sold my property AND achieved $60,000 over the reserve with only I bidder!
Rob is highly professional. Rob and his team's attention to all details made selling our house as easy as possible. His deep understanding and relationships in the Annandale, Leichhardt, Balmain area means he understands the market and connects with potential buyers.
He provided consistent, quality feedback during the sales process so our expectations were managed within the current market throughout our selling process.
He is a quality salesperson who is practical, patient and solutions driven. We very much appreciated his style and the result he achieved for us.
Rob and Michael did an amazing job throughout our sale. From day 1, the process of recommending what we needed to do to present our home for sale and organising the various tradies to get the jobs done in record time was second to none! The teams experience really shone through when it came to how to best market our home, and the auction ran perfectly and according to plan. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Rob and Michael to anyone planning to sell their home.
We just bought our first house through Rob. Rob was very easy to deal with. Unlike other agents, he did not pressure or bully us (although obviously he tried to get us to pay more - he wouldn't be doing his job if he didn't) and he took us seriously. He was very responsive and we didn't feel like he was playing games with us (which is what we thought some other agents were trying to do).
The team at Belle were awesome! Very professional from start to finish. We were impressed with their methodology, expertise, market savy and support throughout the whole process of sale. With a good result we would be happy to recommend them as the agents of choice to any prospective house owners in the inner west wishing to sell.
I entrusted Robert and his team to guide me through the makeover, marketing and sale of my apartment. Their suggestions, marketing and strategies attracted a large number of potential buyers, resulting in a successful sale. Their suggestions and constant updates were valuable in guiding me through the whole process.
Rob was the effective second chair to our lead agent Rebecca Duncan; a team we chose by design. Robert is unsurpassed in the Inner West on knowledge and experience of the area. As a Principal of a leading agency, we only expected Rob to work with us and Rebecca on key strategy points and then use his vast experience on auction day and in negotiations when our property was passed in. Through the process, Rob and Rebecca were seamless and lead a highly effective campaign. Rob did more than we expected and was a steady guiding hand at pivotal moments. Rob is a round peg in a round hole. He has all the attributes, skills, knowledge and demeanour of a great real estate agent and the cherry on top is the passion and enthusiasm he brought to our campaign. We can't recommend Rob's agency Belle Property Annandale and Rob highly enough.
Rob was with us all the way, he knew what we wanted as he took the time to listen to us. Throughout the campaign he explained everything as we reached each and every milestone and decision. On the eve of the auction he had considered all of our requirements, the markets responses and provided us with considered scenarios. During the negotiation he was a master, he did exactly what he said he would and it delivered a great result. We had no surprises or disappointment. We could not thank him and team enough for all of their efforts. We would have no hesitation in recommending him or using him again in the future.
Rob is an outstanding agent with the highest level of knowledge of the market and the personal skills to support families at one of the most stressful times in their lives. I couldn't recommend Rob more highly.
Robert Clarke, Michael Hallit and the entire team at Belle Property Annandale did a wonderful job marketing my property and helping prepare it for sale. Most importantly, their out-of-area reach proved a winning strategy on the day. I could not have hoped for more.
"Robert Clarke was very helpful to us as our sale / auction process was difficult due to it being a deceased estate with multiple family members involved.
We wanted someone with local knowledge and we also got a great report from someone else in the street who had used Belle Property.
We got a great result on auction day and would definitely recommend and work with Belle Property in the future."
Excellent campaign and we're always confident we would achieve target put forward by Rob. Would recommend Rob Clarke and his agency to all.
Robert Clarke did an excellent job selling our house for us. He carefully talked us through strategy and decision making processes, made very sensible suggestions and did not pressure us at any stage. His timing, his planning and his dealings with us and the prospective purchasers was excellent. He provided very good feedback during the weeks leading to the auction and showed his remarkable negotiation skills before the auction -- with the result that we sold prior to auction with a very good deal.
I have dealt with Robert Clarke both as a prospective purchaser and as a vendor. I have additionally bought and sold three other properties in the inner West over the last 15 years. Robert stands out as an agent that both sides can trust to deal fairly and reliably with the often emotional aspects of buying a home. I would prefer to deal with him again if I ever come to sell again.
Robert Clarke is a total professional in what he does, we would not hesitate to engage Robert's expertise for any future sale and we would certainly recommend Robert and his team to family, friends and business colleagues.
After using Rob Clarke when selling a previous property, we had no hesitation in engaging him as our agent once again with the sale of our house in Annandale. Rob's local knowledge, professional approach and personable attitude made the process stress free. He communicated with us throughout the campaign with regular reporting and feedback and worked extremely hard to give us the absolute best result for the sale of our property. We have no hesitation in recommending Rob and his team.
From our first contact with Rob, Rebecca and the team at Belle Annandale we felt very comfortable with their honest and direct approach. At the outset, they quietly stepped us through everything we needed to do and think about in the lead up to and during the campaign. Rob's advice was always honest and straight up - he carefully balanced the risks alongside the benefits in a way that helped keep us well grounded and informed. Rob and the team were fantastic; their patience was endless; nothing was ever a problem, and there were never any silly questions. For us, as sellers, this was exactly what we needed - the four week campaign was largely stress free. While they are results focussed, if you are also looking for an agent that; provides a full professional service, understands the anxiety that sellers and buyers experience, is always across the brief, always acts with integrity, and who also provides a service that has a good dose of heart - then I couldn't recommend Rob and his team more.
Rob is a professional and transparent real estate agent who is able to manage the expectations of both the vendor and purchaser in an appropriate manner. It has been refreshing during our search process to come across an agent that is genuine. Throughout the course of my husband and I pursuing a property in Annandale and surrounding suburbs, Rob has always remained supportive and contactable for any queries. Rob is extremely knowledgeable and understands market changes in the inner west. We would gladly do business again with Rob from Belle Property Annandale.
Robert and the team were very knowledgeable about the local area and went the extra mile dealing with prospective customers. They were always quick to respond to any query and were very helpful in managing the updates on the house before sale and the marketing campaign. They even secured a profile piece in the local paper. Happy to recommend Belle to anyone in the area
From our first meeting through to the hammer dropping at auction, I cannot speak highly enough of Rob and his entire team at Belle Property Annandale. His local market knowledge is second to none, and the direct communication from him and Rebecca meant that there were never any surprise. I felt that they didn't just keep me in the loop, but I was part of the process. The campaign ran extremely smoothly and we were able to achieve a result that I doubt would have been possible if it was not for Rob, Rebecca and the whole Belle Property Annandale team. My only problem is that I don't have more properties in the area to list with them ... Thanks Rob and Rebecca for such an outstanding campaign and result!
Robert and Rebecca gave great advice in relation to the marketing and styling of the property, and were fantastic during and following the auction. Recommended.
I was one of those people that thought - Does an agent really earn all that commission? - I can honestly say after our dealing with Rob and his colleagues they truly did earn their $$, and I felt that we received true value for money. From the beginning to the end Rob and his team were very informative and they never over sold us in terms of the market price expectation. The whole process was very clear and all schedules were met each and every time. Nothing was ever a hassle and my wife and I are EXTREMELY happy with our result and the work that Belle provided. We will not look anywhere else when we have had such a great experience - why would we? If you want the best - Rob and his team WILL deliver.
The work that Robert and his team did selling our house was outstanding. It was a thoughtful campaign tailored to our requirements. We achieved our goal and were kept informed of progress throughout the process with immediate access to a dedicated team of professionals.
