“We have known Simon on and off professionally for many years and have long respected his property market knowledge and, particularly, his understanding of the suburb of Hunters Hill, what motivates buyers and sellers here and how to attract both local and Sydney-wide interest.
Simon is trustworthy and reliable and never promises anything he can’t deliver. He doesn’t ‘pull punches’ if things are not going well (ie too few buyers), just puts his head down and works out how to build interest and promote productive house inspections.
We felt very well supported throughout the sales process and on the day of the auction (and later). We have no hesitation in recommending Simon to a seller looking for high level market experience and knowledge, openness and frankness, accurate guidance as to property values and a friendly voice on the phone reporting on inspections, offering informed guidance and counsel and suggesting strategic options to maximise buyer interest and, ultimately, price.
We wish him further success in his career.”
“We have bought and sold 17+ properties, have dealt with a number of agents but Simon Harrison is the best in all respects”.
"Robyn, Daniela and the team at Belle Property Hunters Hill exceeded my expectations with renting out my apartment. I had a two week time frame to find the perfect tenant and Belle property were so persistent and kept me up to date with each step. It's now a week before Christmas and I my property has been rented out faster than I hoped and thats thanks to Robyn and Daniela's expertise. Highly Recommended!"
“Thanks to Belle property for always remaining professional and providing great service to us as tenants throughout our stay”
“My wife and I recently engaged Simon Harrison and the team at Belle Property Hunters Hill to sell our Apartment. Simon is highly capable and professional with outstanding communication skills. He provided detailed market analysis as well as invaluable industry knowledge to support us through the process. An amazing marketing campaign was executed that resulted in huge interest in our property that sold before auction for a fantastic price exceeding our expectations. Thanks, Simon and team for the outstanding result”.
“I think you are aware that we had a competitor agent looking after our North Ryde property for around 10 years prior to undertaking a complete renovation of the property over the past 5 months. There were aspects of neglect of the property that came to light because of that process, which left us less than happy with the existing agent who had been managing the property for us. We were frustrated by this, as we consider ourselves good and very responsive landlords – each time we were asked to fix anything we responded immediately and provided necessary approval and funds to address the relevant issue.
Towards the back end of our renovation I sought guidance from our builder (also a close family friend) as to agents he has dealt with in the area, in light of the fact that he has lived in North Ryde for some 20 years. He recommended we consider your company Belle Property and two others. I spoke with all three recommended agents and all were comparable on price, but I felt that you had the edge for service and were keen to optimise the position for us as landlords, based on our telephone interactions. This intuitive feeling was borne out by the excellent leasing result that you achieved – one open house with 5 interested parties and ultimately a family tenant from the area who were happy to sign up to the terms and rent that we were asking without question and to move in the following week. Thanks again for your dedication and terrific effort on our behalf; we look forward too many years of mutually beneficial relationship and will very happily recommend Belle Property to others”.
“Simon and his team (including George) went out of their way, both before, and after, I appointed them. Their initial proposal was generous, and was the best of the three agents I initially spoke with. They assisted with arranging tradesmen and other helpers to get the property ready for sale. Simon called immediately after every open inspection to give an update, and then again two days later after he had spoken with the parties, and he then also followed through with a written analysis. We were fortunate that we had really amazing editorial coverage (I know that sometimes this is just lucky), but his team really put this together. Overall, I have no criticism whatsoever about the campaign, and their contribution. Whilst we did not achieve as high a result as we had all expected, and hoped for, I have no issue that this was in any way through the lack of efforts of Simon and his team. If I had another real estate transaction in this area, I would use Simon and his team without a doubt. The most professional group I have used in my many recent years of property transactions. Thankyou Simon, George and the Belle Hunters Hill team”.
"We recently sold our Hunters Hill home with Simon and George from Belle Property and we wanted to mention the positive experience we received from the entire team.
We had seen Simon sell a lot of property in the Hunters Hill area in recent times and were always impressed by his professionalism and his dedication to get the very best result.
It was no different when we entrusted him with the sale of our home. We are very happy with the price that he achieved for us under somewhat testing circumstances.
We would highly recommend to anyone thinking of selling their home to engage Simon, George and Belle Property as we know they will also do a fantastic job for you".
“I have been buying and selling in and around the Hunters Hill, Lane Cove and Ryde area for 15 years. George and his team at Belle Property are easily the best agents I have ever dealth with. Previous agents have given the impression you’re just means to a commission. George’s genuine interest and unwavering commitment to secure me the best possible results throughout the whole campaign were obvious. A great knowledge of the local market, communication above and beyond the call of duty, great negotiating skills and all done with dignity and class. I can’t recommend George Gialouris and Belle Property highly enough.”
"From the first meeting, it felt like we were in good hands. We were impressed with the knowledge, advice and professionalism shown by both Simon and George. All commitments and appointments were met, and importantly, we were kept informed and updated throughout the sale process.
The marketing, photography, and inspections were all carried out without issue or complication.
We would certainly recommend Belle Property to anyone who was looking to sell or buy in the local area."
"Simon was highly driven and effective – he is very responsive and delivers quickly. His communication is relaxed, undemanding, and amicable. He appears very genuine and operated with high levels integrity. He is comfortable and able to work outside the standard sales recipe of many of the agency chains, while still benefiting from having the infrastructure of the Belle group to create a professional image. Simon maintained his interest and passion throughout the process. We highly recommend him".
"After dealing with many many real estate agents over the last year, I can honestly and sincerely say that it has been a pleasure and refreshing to deal with George from Belle Property Hunters Hill.
His professionalism has been unquestionable, he has been honest and transparent through out the full process of the campaign and sale and went way beyond what is expected in order to make this process as stress free and comfortable as possible. I really appreciate your guidance, and the time you spent with me to make this purchase succeed".
"Drew and I were extremely pleased with Brent May from Belle Property’s attentiveness, communication, honesty and advice throughout the entire process. Right from our very first meeting Brent and George Gialouris explained the sale/auction process thoroughly and did not try to obtain our business by giving us an unreal expectation of what our property was worth in the current market.
We had our East Ryde home on the market and after only 1 viewing our house which was going to go to Auction in 4 weeks was sold and for more than we expected. When selling a house it comes down to the owner being given a realistic valuation, and ensuring the agent you choose are professional and understanding to all your needs.
The team at Belle Property showed integrity and most of all we trusted them, they were working for us through the whole process. We are so glad we chose them from the five agents we met with. My advice to anyone considering selling your home is that they must feel comfortable with their agent choice. My husband and I would have no hesitation in recommending Brent May from Belle Property to anyone in the future who is trying to decide between agents".
“I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you both for the manner in which you managed the sale of our house. The professional approach was expected, but the level of feedback and communication was a welcome surprise. We were both extremely happy with the smooth process and attention to detail shown at all times. We would happily recommend your services to others”.
“We had been following Simon and his team for some time and were confident that we chose the best agent for the job when it came time to sell our place. We were right! Not only were we happy with the price achieved, communication from the start was excellent and our campaign ran smoothly from beginning to end.
The whole process was actually an enjoyable one and we would have no hesitation in using Simon Harrison and his team at Belle Property again”.
"On behalf of my sisters and I we would like to thank you and the team at Belle Property for your recent efforts in handling the sale of my late parents’ house at Hunter’s Hill.
We were extremely impressed with your candour and professionalism. You consulted with us at each step of the process and listened to and answered all of our questions. We felt that we were always well informed. Although the property did not ultimately go to auction this was due to the efforts you and the team went to secure the best outcome for us which we managed to achieve before auction. In the end the price that we agreed upon was substantially above even our most optimistic expectations.
It goes without saying that we would happily recommend your agency to anyone looking to buy or sell. Fantastic job - well done! Thanks."
"Tony and I would sincerely like to thank you for your patients and effort in keeping us informed throughout the entire sales process. We would highly recommend you to any one I know who is wanting to sell or buy a property."
"When the time arrived for this property to be sold, the Executors were faced with the decision as to who to appoint as the Agent and the method of sale to be employed. Several firms were recommended however yours was the first to be interviewed.
George Gialouris attended the site and his enthusiasm for the matter was infectious.
The age and condition of the property would have encouraged substantial expenditure of money to prepare for sale, however wise counsel from George ensured that a clear plan of rectification and beautification was undertaken within a strict budget and the result was the property was presented in an excellent condition, thereby making it more saleable.
George co-ordinated the work of painting, carpeting, repairs, maintenance, cleaning and kept the Executors fully informed of progress and cost. There were no surprises.
From the moment the property was opened for inspection, George kept the Executors informed, sometimes, many times per day. His advice was to allow the property to find its own market and not to put it to auction. He suggested a starting figure to attract interest and to allow the market to find its level. This could only work, of course, with the enthusiasm shown by George in encouraging people to inspect the property and to make offers.
It was a pleasure to watch a young man, good at his craft, conduct the sale proceedings, very capably, gain confidence to all prospective purchasers to eventually achieve, what is considered to be, an outstanding result.
George’s actions, however did not stop there. There was still work to be done to ensure that the conveyancing process itself proceeded smoothly and he was always available to attend to any matters which would ensure that this occurred.
The end result was that a property in poor condition was rejuvenated, professionally marketed, an outstanding result received and completion effected to the satisfaction of the Executors.
Congratulations to your firm for the job done especially to George for his outstanding professional performance".
“It was incredibly refreshing and comforting to have George and Simon manage the sale of our property. The enthusiasm and energy the Belle team brought to the task was equally matched with astute advice and a sincere and courteous approach. We had every confidence that the price expectations they provided were realistic and we were delighted with the result they achieved in a short time".
"We approached George at Belle Property for advice after experiencing his professionalism at a number of open houses we had attended in the local area. At that point we had not decided whether selling or renovating our property was the best decision for us. George Gialouris gave us valuable advice on the current state of the market and the best way to maximise our home’s potential. His knowledge, grace and charm made the decision to sell our home and appoint Belle Property as our agents, easy.
George introduced us to tradespeople, obtained quotes and managed progress of the building works required to get our home up to Belle standards. He guided us in making the right renovation choices for a good sale. George minimised the pressures involved in selling a home and we felt his efforts went way beyond what we expected of an agent. For this, we are extremely grateful.
When it came to the marketing of our property we were very pleased with the quality of Belle’s presentation of our home. George followed up potential buyers and communicated regularly with us during the sales process. We had the trust and confidence in him to guide us once our house was on the market. As a result of George’s hard work and advice and Belle Property’s expert services our home was sold before auction and we were extremely happy with both the experience and the outcome.
We would not hesitate to recommend George and Belle Property and we would be happy to use their services again".
"We met George Gialouris from Belle Property when he was selling a property in our street that presented extremely well with Belle's advice and great signage. This prompted us to sell and we had George come through our property. From the start George took the stress out of the sale. He helped us prepare for the market, he was easy to contact and gave us immediate and thorough information about the progress of the sale. George and the Belle Property team were always professional and personable and achieved a great result for us. We have already recommend George to our friends. Thanks George and the team."
"From the very start George showed great interest in the property and was determined to get the best possible result for us. He kept us fully informed at all times of the developments. He made the process for us clean, quick, without stress and it was a pleasure to be able to work with him. We would have no hesitation in recommending George to other sellers."
"We would like to thank George Gialouris for all his great efforts, honest communication and professionalism shown towards the sale of our property recently. His extreme hard work in achieving the best result is a clear proof of his immense capabilities. He left no stone unturned to achieve us the best result and Belle Property must feel proud of having a marvellous sales consultant in their ranks."
"We want to thank you George for your outstanding service to us in selling our property at Lane Cove North. We are very grateful for your efforts and wish to commend you for your professionalism, constant communication and always helpful manner during the process. You went above and beyond the call of duty to sell our house, for this we are truly grateful."
"George and his team managed my sale with the utmost of professionalism and managed to secure an exceptional result under testing circumstances. Their commitment and ability showed in the final result. Would definitely recommend George for any sales in the area."
