Michael is a rare breed of real estate agents: he’s knowledgeable, professional, and genuine about
establishing a long term working relationship.
From our experience he is one of, if not the best agent we have had the pleasure of dealing with. Having
purchased our first property through Michael, we did not consider anyone else when it was time to sell.
What you get from Michael is honesty and commitment to get the best outcome for you. He doesn’t make
outlandish promises just to get your listing, like most real estate agents.
We sold our property prior to auction for a price we were pleased with. I would definitely deal with Michael
again and strongly recommend him if you’re considering selling your property.
Michael Garcia was an excellent agent in everything that he did for me. The sale of 18 Miller Ave, Ashfield was a difficult one as there were communication problems between the vendors (executors of the estate). Michael was diplomatic at all times, conveying conversations between my sister and me. He offered practical suggestions as to how to handle difficult situations to me at all times. He did things that were way above what an agent is asked to do, ie take out the rubbish bins! He hired tradies that I needed to complete works at the property, as I live interstate, and had no clue as to who to hire and who was reliable. He was always on hand, I could ring him anytime, even Sunday nights. He was always calm when I was frustrated (not with him) and positive. I knew a phone call from Michael was always going to have a solution to the many problems that we faced. I think he exceeded all expectations of what a Real Estate Agent is supposed to do. Also, due to the long time frame (13 months - All seasons covered) the market in Sydney was changing so it was hard to predict what the final outcome would be. But it was an excellent outcome.
High performer - Michael excelled in all phases of the sale from initiation to settlement. Always happy to talk about any issues and straight coming providing relevant information so I could make the right decision at the right time. Michael is a great agent and highly recommended to all. Always hard working and giving his best, yet being fair to all parties. Michael was a pleasure to do business with as professionalism is always given.
A big thankyou to Michael - This was our first property sale and not knowing what to expect we were very apprehensive about the whole process. Engaging Michael was the best move we could have made. Michael kept us informed through the whole process and made us feel very comfortable with the decisions we were making. He supported us throughout and we ended up with a very swift sale and one which met our expectations. We can't thank Michael enough and we would recommend him to anyone that was thinking of selling.
A stunning sale price that beat all expectations - I live in the UK and wanted to sell my one-bedroom investment unit in Ashfield NSW before the end of June (the end of the Australian tax year) but didn't contact Michael until the first week of May. He helped set my expectations that I might expect $450,000 as this was a fairly short period of time and that a slightly longer campaign might help achieve a better price (around $480,000) and I gave him instructions to proceed on the auspicious date of Friday 13th May.
Living half a world apart ruled out phone calls but Michael and his team kept me very well informed by regular email of everything I needed to do and levels of interest shown on open days. The first inspection was on Saturday 4th June. The following Saturday (Queen's Birthday weekend), I woke to an email requesting I phone Michael. Interest was high and he had talked one buyer up from $450,000 to $470,000 and reckoned that offers would be made after the long weekend - I could probably expect a sale price of $480,000.
On Tuesday 14th June, immediately after the long weekend, Michael called me in the UK to say he had achieved $502,500! I couldn't believe it and had a smile on my face the rest of the day! Just one month from instruction and just two inspections. I was absolutely thrilled.
I have always wondered who wrote those reviews of estate agents as so many agents surely have the (poor) reputation normally attributed to politicians and second-hand car salesmen. But here I am writing my own review. The sale price was more than $50,000 higher than my initial expectation.
While we only spoke a couple of times, Michael was professional, courteous and considered. He was realistic and pragmatic throughout and kept me fully informed every step of the way. He achieved a stunning result.
Michael was always quick to respond and actively served my needs. Despite viewing numbers being down, we achieved a sale amount above market trends and even managed to sell prior to auction. I'd happily commend Michael and his team to anyone wishing to sell a property in the Inner West.
Michael was professional and courteous at all times. He provided valuable market intelligence for several weeks before being appointed selling agent, demonstrated excellent market knowledge, and provided sound advice regarding acceptance of the pre-auction offer.
He did this politely & professionally without being "pushy", clearly differentiating himself from his opposition. With a competitive commission & marketing plan, his advice to accept the offer prior to auction was sound, and well argued.
His knowledge of the local market is a clear asset to the sales team, and I am pleased to recommend Michael to prospective sellers in the area.
When my Mother was selling her unit we engaged Michael Garcia. We had received brochures in the mail advertising their services , so we made that our first point of call, with a view to talk to several other local real estate offices. The first time we met Michael, we found him to be very open and professional with the information he provided on the local market and in his responses to our questions. We felt that we were not just one of many of his clients but he made us feel we were his most important client. As my Mother felt so comfortable with Michael we did not proceed with our plan to seek advice from other agencies and therefore we signed on with Michael to sell my Mother's Unit. Throughout the whole process Michael kept us up to date with what was happening and was always touching base with us with information regarding the process and visitors that had been through and shown interest in our Unit. I would have no problem in recommending Michael to others to sell their properties and if we had to go through the process ever again I would gladly use Michael without any hesitation. Michael has made a very daunting process for my elderly mother both seamless and with minimum stress. I would rate Michael Garcia as warm, personable and a person who easily builds rapport with his clients and is a true professional.
Thanks to Michael for the recent sale of our property we are very happy with the result. We are very impressed with your knowledge about your job and your professionalism and very easy to communicate.
Went above and beyond Michael was very informative and supportive throughout the sale of the apartment and was able to get the best price possible. He knew the best way to present and the best campaign strategy.
Very good service, and market knowledge. Obtained excellent price for the sale.
Highly recommended - Michael was professional and easy to communicate with. He made the selling process as smooth as possible, with a successful outcome.
Michael was able to handle a situation between myself and my sister, joint owners of the property, with skill and understanding . He kept me up to date at all times of the progress of the sale and achieved an outcome beyond expectation. Statistical feedback along the way was most useful . Always available to answer any questions and returned unanswered calls promptly. I would use him again if the situation arose.
Strongly recommend Michael 推荐麦克 Michael is very professional and efficient. Not only helped us with house purchase process, he also helped us with fixing minor issues. We really appreciate his help and hard work. Although we are very busy with moving house, but we can help letting others know, he is a very good agent. I would recommend Michael if anyone needs to sale or buy properties.
Michael has been very honest when he was dealing with me.
myself and my wife liked the way he used his communication skills to convince us what is right and when to strike. Looking at the market trend we feel that he got us a good price.
Michael put a lot of effort into the sale and managed a lot of the preparation to have the house available and presentable for sale. Michael delivered what he said he would, very credible to work with and I would have no hesitation to recommend him as a very experienced and trustworthy agent.
We would like to thank Michael Garcia for his guidance and assistance with the very successful sale of our Mother’s home at 20 Hugh Street, Ashfield. We found the advice you gave us for marketing our property was excellent and we are extremely happy with the sale prior to auction. We found Michael very approachable and willing to go “the extra mile” for us. Our aim was always to do the best we could for our mum and it’s as if Michael took on this persona and did exactly that for us. We can recommend Michael to anyone wanting a dedicated sales person to represent their house sale. Thank you once more.
I’m only too happy to write a testimonial. Here we go:
Many thanks for achieving an excellent result on the sale our home at 70 Holden Street Ashfield. We found you to be very professional, delivered your promises and kept us in touch all the way through the marketing campaign. From day one you kept saying it was a “numbers game.” We need so many hits on the website which translates to so many viewings which leads to so many contract requests which leads to so many registered buyers which leads to so many bidders which ultimately leads to one successful buyer. This is a simple strategy – and it worked a treat!
Most importantly we all felt we could trust you and we developed a partnership with you and any request we made you were only too happy to assist. As you know the house we were selling was on behalf of our parents so it was important we achieved the best result. Not only did you achieve our expectation, you surpassed it! We would absolutely recommend you to family or friends for any future opportunities.
I would like to take this opportunity to send my appreciation to Michael Garcia for the sale of our family home which has been in our family for over 90 years.
We first met Michael a year and a half before we were ready to sell. The zoning of our home would attract young families and developers so we sought the opinion of some agents in order to maximise the properties full sale potential.
Michael immediately provided some great ideas which demonstrated his experience with selling residential homes and development sites which we found beneficial when it came to choosing an agent. Some agents were pushy and presumed the business which we found inconsiderate and off putting. After a few initial meetings with Michael and other family members we decided Michael Garcia would be the best agent to represent us for the sale of our home.
During the campaign we were kept informed regularly and consulted every step of the way. The written reports were impressive with detailed and accurate notes on everything from weekly advertising to buyer feedback. The auction would not have been a success without the advice, experience and professionalism from Michael.
Michael not only provided an exceptional selling experience, we found that Michael was good natured, honest and driven. We could speak to Michael at any time and about anything.
We would recommend Michael Garcia to family, friends and anyone looking to sell property.
Once again thank you, and all the best.
