'Stefon sold out first property and I think we had went through the process of choosing an agent then so we knew Stefon was right for us because of his passion and excitement. We had a great experience the first time and so for us when we were selling our house most recently we really didn’t look around for anyone else.

The best thing during the campaign was the communicate we received from Stefon. After each open house we would get feedback on who had gone through and even though it was stressful time we felt we were in good hands throughout the process.

We can’t fault Stefon and his team. We have been on both sides of the transaction and each time they have been very professional, realistic, open and honest about what is happening out in the marketplace. At the end of the day just having that trust in place they are able to do what they do best.'

'Whilst we were daunted by the market conditions, Stefon’s passion for property maintained his positive enthusiasm. Undeterred, he was determined to achieve the outcome we desired, ie a quick sale at the best price possible.

In these market conditions, sales are achieved via hard work, an agent who continues to keep pushing forward, to make the next call, to have the next sales conversation! Stefon was persistent, not waiting for buyers to walk in our front door, but actively working his sales process and his buyer network to bring potential buyers to our property.

Stefon’s dedication resulted in close attention to the small details and a commitment to providing quality service, not just by Stefon, by his support team and his marketing team too.

Stefon was willing to make suggestions, try different tactics and share his property knowledge. He was generous with his time and personalised attention. His regular updates, either face to face and via the telephone and email, meant that we were supported and kept informed throughout the whole process.

We trusted we were in good hands and Stefon achieved the SOLD result we desired at our auction.'

'I met with James on a Friday to get a comparison with another agent I had already met with (as recommended by colleagues). He brought an enthusiasm and level of excitement to the meeting that I liked, without being 'over the top'. We talked about the McGrath method, brochureware and the possibility of obtaining a block record for the sale of my unit. He then invited me to an open house they had the next day in my suburb. I attended and was impressed with the number of staff present, the brochureware and the way in which the open house was conducted. I then met with James again and we decided on the fee structure and discussed the marketing campaign. I liked that I wasn't pressed to spend money on styling, James indicated that his preference was for potential buyers to imagine their art etc on my walls (which were blank). My unit was in good condition with the walls painted in a neutral shade, good quality carpet, blinds, air conditioning and a relatively new kitchen. I also like the idea of a private treaty sale as opposed to an auction as I was getting ready to make an offer on an apartment.

I was going overseas for work so the first open house was delayed by my departure however photos for the marketing campaign were able to be taken during this time. The first open house was well attended and James called me with an update afterwards. He then stayed in contact regularly and I always knew what was going on, especially with several 'out of hours' openings that were requested. James also kept me apprised of offers received.

As I had never sold a property before, I had lots of questions which James patiently answered. He was always available, either via text, phone or email. James was extremely professional and courteous throughout the whole process and worked hard to achieve a great result which was a block record in a short period of time which allowed settlement on the unit I purchased to occur weeks earlier than originally planned. I now have 2 neighbours considering selling and I have recommended they use James/McGraths. '

'Strategy, tactics and finely honed sales skills define Stefon. It took him just three weeks to sell our house even though it had a number of things going against it. He achieved the sales price we were looking for and we couldn't be happier. His team, including Zing and Megan were a delight to deal with.'

'No wonder Stefon has been recommended by many of my friends and colleagues. I am your worst nightmare when it comes to being a procrastinator, but Stefon knows exactly when to push and when to step back and let me have space to think. He is precise, efficient and fast. He certainly knows his stuff!! He must be a great negotiator as my place was sold in three days.'

'We would like to express our gratitude to you, James and your team for the sale of our property which was completed well within our timeframe and achieve an excellent result. The entire process was professionally handled with excellent photos, advertising and bringing prospective buyers through the open home. You kept us updated on market feedback, provided a report each week and kept us well informed on the progress.
You were aggressive and enthusiastic in your marketing, and also thank you for being patient with us during the final stage of selling the house.
Special thanks for James who had represented our house very well and assist us until the final stage of the selling process.'

'We would like to thank you for your hard work and dedication you put towards the sale of our property.

We had a hard time going through which agent we should pick. After speaking to 5 different real estates, we felt most comfortable with you. You gave a more realistic approach and made us feel confident you could deliver what we were expecting!

Selling a property can be very stressful but the continuous updates and meetings made us feel at ease knowing, you and your team are doing everything they can to get the job done. Coming up to the auction we had a couple of hiccups but you were always ahead of the game, coming up with solutions and making sure we did not lose any potential buyers.
I think the overall sale price says what you and your team are capable of.
Look forward to doing more business with you. Special mention to James Jin, he has been an absolute pleasure to deal with as well!'

'We couldn't be happier with the service and result we got from Stefon Bertram and the team from McGrath. Stefon was eager for our business, really well prepared and clear on what we could expect from the sale, and worked harder than we hoped for to get our result. He outlined a plan, kept us really well informed the whole along, and made us feel really comfortable with the sale process. We achieved a fantastic result, better than we expected, and couldn't recommend Stefon and his team more highly.'

There is only one thing I would like to say about Stefon, it is a fact, and I think this fact is more than enough qualify as best testimonial for any agent:

We bought the current property we live in from Stefon, sold our previous property with Stefon. As of last Saturday we sold our current property by Stefon, and we bought our future property, which will settle in 2 weeks, from Stefon.

You don't stick with the same agent for 4 properties unless he is doing something right!

I certainly am highly delighted with the result you achieved in selling my property. As you know $1.2m was the highest possible value I could have hoped to achieve and to come so close to that figure is a fabulous result and exceeded my expectations. Also, you and your staff were a pleasure to deal with during this process, being reliable, helpful and most unobtrusive the whole way through. Many thanks and good wishes.

We appointed Stefon Bertram from McGrath Estate Agents to sell our property in 3/43 Badajoz Road, Ryde.
Within a short period of time, Stefon managed to identify potential buyers and it was just a matter of a few weeks before our property was sold.
All along Stefon provided us with a good and professional service and was willing to answer any questions we had. We were able to contact Stefon outside of business hours for any questions. Stefon is a very knowledgeable and experienced real estate agent.
We strongly recommend Stefon Bertram as a real estate agent who looks after his clients and provides a good and honest advice.

Testimonial for Stefon Bertram – McGrath Real Estate
Thank you Stefon, and your team, for all your hard work and support in getting us our family home. It was a hard slog over the past two years of looking and going through the auction process but we are finally there!
We cannot speak more highly of Stefon.
Stefon and James knew what we wanted, the location and price range for the property we were searching for. They kept in contact with us about suitable properties, supported us through auctions (even helping us bid on one!) and intuitively knew when to give us space after auction disappointments.
For the property we bought, Stefon guided us through the off-market purchase process, going above and beyond in his role to help us in getting contracts signed in time for his meeting with the vendors to give us the best chance of purchase.
Stefon and his extensive database of clients allowed us to sell our unit within 4 days of the professional photos being taken.
Stefon is a friendly, happy, hard-working and honest person and we couldn’t be more happy with his professional services. We would highly recommend Stefon and James in selling or assisting in purchasing any future properties.

'Stefon, we cannot thank you enough for making the selling of our home a relatively pleasant experience instead of the trauma we were expecting.

We are most thankful for your professional approach and guidance on how our property could be made more saleable by using a professional house maintenance firm. Danny O’Neill spent two days and in that time absolutely transformed the appearance of our house and yard. He trimmed the trees washed the house and pathways and spread wood chips on the gardens and advised us on how we should arrange pot plants to give the best effect and make the most of our yard.

Your photographers arrived at the time we arranged and very quickly took their photos with the minimum of fuss. Their photos certainly made our property look at its best.
However, Stefon your pleasant manner and encouragement really did add to our sales experience. Nothing was too much trouble including your recommendation of a conveyancer to save us funds on the transfer.

If you ever need a reference to a client please send them around and we will tell them how you sold our house in five days for much more than we expected.'

'I approached Zing & Stefon when I was searching for a qualified agent to sell my apartment. As it is the first time we are selling an apartment so we are really careful with selecting with our agent. After we met with three different agents, we decided to choose Zing & Stefon to represent our apartment for sale. She has a very professional attitude but always with a bit personal touch. She is very confident but doesn't exaggerate facts or make empty promise. During the month period of selling, she definitely proved herself to be a very dedicated agent that always go extra mile for their client and have your best interest in heart. I think for an agent and client relationship, trust and credibility are two very crucial things. One thing that impressed me the most about Zing is her ability to build a trustworthy relationship with us. When we were under a bit pressure with Christmas period coming, Zing was able to give me a private visit among her already full schedule and present us when she had done so far and what she thinks would be the best strategy next. As we are first time sellers, Zing definitely held our hands through the whole process, making this could have been stressful experience very easy and enjoyable. We are very happy with the end result and highly recommend her service.'

101S/1 Lardelli Dr, Ryde

I was extremely pleased with Zing's service and expertise for the recent sale of my apartment.
As a first time vendor I did not know what to expect and unfamiliar with the process however from the initial meeting with Zing, everything was made clear and great advice was given in relation to all aspects of the sale such as pricing, staging and presentation, market activity and more. Zing was professional, efficient and proactive in helping things run smoothly behind the scenes and kept me updated on a frequent basis. She truly went above and beyond and genuinely wanted the best result for me which she definitely achieved.
I would not hesitate in contacting Zing for all my future real estate needs whether buying or selling!

'We are both perfectionists! There is not an agent in Ryde or the surrounding suburbs that we didn't research and assess to sell our biggest asset.

It didn't take long to notice and zone in on Stefon Bertram as his results and number of sales were significantly higher than anyone else. We went to watch him in action at auction before making our final decision.

Stefon Bertram didn't come to us, we walked into his office and asked him to sell our property!

Stefon has a spring in his step and his energy is infectious.

He is young, fresh, enthusiastic and knows the market very well. Yes, of course we tested his knowledge, we had to be sure! He is hard working, always available and constantly kept us informed.

He had our full confidence so we trusted him to market our property the way he wanted to. We are sure this is why we ended up with a record-breaking duplex sale in Ryde.'

'We chose Stefon as our agent to sell our property after considering quite a few different agents, and we are very pleased we made this decision. Stefon is pleasant, energetic, communicates very well and works really hard.

He has extensive knowledge of the local property market and has a lot of experience in the area. He is also a fantastic negotiator.

What we also found very helpful was his easygoing and friendly personality and care. Selling a house can be at times stressful but he helped us in many ways to reduce that from being always available, giving us great advice in anything we were unsure, recommending us fantastic tradesmen to help prepare our house for sale and even giving us a hand to remove a furniture we wanted out of the house!

I have to admit I can be quite difficult at times, bombarding him with many questions and requests! but Stefon has been patient and accommodating to my requests throughout the campaign.

He also has a great team that supports him, Megan is most helpful is organising whatever we needed for marketing the property and the whole process was very organised and well looked after.

Stefon and his team ran a great campaign for the sale of our property and we thank them very much for their hard work. We would highly recommend Stefon and we are confident we chose the best agent in the area.'

'Stefon, many thanks to you and your team for your enthusiastic management of the sale of our family home at auction. We know we had a great result, but understand that there were a number of 'agent led' factors to our pleasing outcome.

We benefited from your extensive knowledge of the local property market and history. As you shared numerous examples and details of recent sales it helped us to understand what to expect for our sale.

We benefited from your experience and your proven knowledge of effective sales strategies. Thanks for outlining a plan for the process of the marketing and sale of the property and then fulfilling it! It was reassuring for us to know what to expect. It was even better to find that you and your team delivered on what you had committed to and communicated on progress throughout.

We benefited from your team approach. We found all team members to be friendly, professional and polite. Relating with them was a very positive aspect of our process. Throughout the process we sensed that you and your team were all working diligently and efficiently toward a good sale result.

On a personal level we valued your courteous approach. We never felt pressured into making a decision that we were not comfortable with and appreciated your informed discussion in negotiation.

We will confidently recommend the Stefon Bertram team to others who are undertaking a property sale.'

‘Thank you so much for your great efforts during the time of selling our house. We feel that it is a privilege to have you as our selling agent. I appreciate that our friend made the recommendation to us about you after his house being sold successfully by you and your team. I know that he had tried five different agents before finding you.

We also feel that we are so fortunate to have you as our selling agent, which lead to have such good result. We are very impressed by your professionalism and enthusiasm during the time of selling. You always displayed a positive attitude regardless what is the situation like, and used different strategies to solve the problems in order to maximize the result of selling. It is amazing to see you and your team are so efficiently to organizing open house and get more people to view the house in a very short time. We have seen a great team work as well. Having talking to our friends about our selling experience, they all share the same view that we are so lucky to have you as our agent, and you are absolute an excellent agent.

'To Stefon and the team at McGrath Estate Agents, It is with great pleasure that I take the time to write and thank you for the professional and efficient manner in which you conducted the recent sale of our property in Greene Avenue Ryde. We were very pleased with the selling campaign and of course the auction result.

The experience of selling our home was made all the less stressful through your professionalism including your expertise about pricing and presentation, keeping us well informed of prospective buyer feedback, vendor meetings and preparation of all possible outcomes at auction. The punctuality of yourself and every member of your team cannot be faulted. Each member was not only familiar with the intricacies of the property to be sold but were familiar with the status of the real estate market in general and it would be remiss of me not to mention the special efforts of James Jin.

On auction day the price was beyond expectation and I believe this is only due to the hard work and attitude of yourself and your team. I can't thank you enough and have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone who is considering selling their property.'

'Upgrading from our 2 bedroom villa to a house was something that we were delaying for a long time. It seemed a challenging and uncertain process. However, Stefon helped us to have confidence to take the necessary steps to achieve our goal. Stefon with his wealth of experience and knowledge took the time, a few evenings, to guide us over the process of selling our villa. He showed us a clear and sound strategy that would provide the best result. He also gave us confidence that once our property was sold we would be able to find a house that we could afford. In contrast to other agents, he does not pressure to sign the contract at any time, instead with his calmed attitude, he seemed fine with having as many appointments as necessary for us to be convinced.

During the whole process Stefon and his team were always communicative, either providing necessary feedback or prompting us to provide necessary information or documents to help potential buyers to make their decision. The marketing campaign and the inspections were well organised, we were impressed by the high interest generated. Now that our villa was sold successfully on auction and we have just found our next home, we are very thankful for Stefon and his team, and we are definitively counting on them for our next sale!'

We were quite apprehensive about putting it on the market, as it was and still is a place I was very proud of and somewhat attached too. I know there were a few open houses and I appreciate the way you and team were accommodating to potential buyers and their busy lifestyles. I was impressed with the ongoing updates from yourself and Megan as well as the attention to detail. The marketing was enough for my apartment and worked really well.

'The process for selling my apartment was smooth from the get go. We were referred to Stefon through the McGrath network and when we researched his background were pleasantly surprised by the ratings websites on the amount of sales he had in the area and the strength of his rating. Stefon came a long way to meet us at our home (not in the vicinity of our property for sale) at a time that suited us. Stefon was extremely well informed on the area and on our property providing lots of relevant sales evidence which gave us comfort that he could achieve our expectations for price. Stefon made us feel comfortable by outlining in detail the process that the sale would go through and his strategy for selling the property, both from a pricing and an advertising standpoint. From this point the team were fast to act on getting the property to market with the property listing days after us meeting for the first time. The marketing was professional, detailed, and highlighted all the reasons we believed the property was a cracker. Stefon worked hard holding both weekend and weeknight inspections in order to get the most people through the door and increase our chances at getting offers. When that offer finally came through Stefon was able to negotiate a strong position even with one bidder and increase their bid to be well within our expectations for the final sale price. All in all Stefon is a pleasure to work with as he is easy going, hardworking, keeps you well informed of progress, and truly is an expert in the Ryde residential market.'

'We first met Stefon Bertram years ago when his company sold our last property. Although we were approached by many agents, it was an easy decision to choose Stefon Bertram, John Paranchi and their team because we knew we could trust them. Stefon & John both has experience of many years in our area Gladesville/Ryde/Putney. At first we tried to sell our home off market with Stefon and John however the offers submitted did not meet our price expectation so we took their advice to go to auction. Given a few changes to our street, including a road closure and the construction of a Bunnings Warehouse behind us, we were really nervous about putting our home on the market. Selling a property in this location was tricky, but Stefon & John worked really hard with potential buyers and they were answering all the queries spot on. Once we started both Stefon and John kept us updated with weekly meetings and made us 100% comfortable, we were in the right hands! Within the first couple of weeks offers had increased from $1,700,000 to $2,000,000. Stefon and John even managed to get eventual buyer of our property up in price from their first offer of $1,850,000 to $1,930,000 to the sale price of $2,000,000. We will have no hesitation in recommending Stefon and John to our family and friends and hope to get their continued help when we buy our next property.'

'We met Stefon a couple of years ago at an auction and since then there was never any doubt in our minds that he would be the agent that we would use when we wished to sell our property. He helped us with our renovations by giving us his thoughts on what aspects would add the most value and what was unnecessary and it made a world of difference to the saleability of our house. He was the only agent who gave us the straight facts about the good and the bad even though he had not won our business at the time. Once our campaign began, he worked tirelessly with his team to get the house on the market in record time and by also motivating us to finish the renovations on time. He gave us all of his contacts for tradespeople and followed up on our behalf when needed. Even when there were minor issues, there were always alternatives available to us that didn't affect the campaign in any way. During our auction, the price stalled a couple of times but Stefon was on his game and through his negotiation and influential skills, got the bidding moving up again until the final hammer fell. It was one of the longest auctions he has ever seen but he didn't give up and got us a price that we were happy with. We would definitely recommend Stefon as an agent and he is head and shoulders above others in the area.'

‘We are very happy that we chose Stefon and his team to represent us in selling our home. The process was an easy one as he walked us through everything from marketing ideas all the way through to sitting with us in our home when we signed the contract after receiving the final offer, which went above what we thought was possible at the time. He was patient with us when explaining our options but also wasn’t scared to give us a nudge when we needed it. He and his team were very helpful and accommodating, making the viewings a breeze. They even offered to help push my car when it broke down as an open house started. This dedication shows how far they are willing to go to make your sale a success. I would definitely use him and his team again in the future as Stefon pushed to get us the best possible price, even outdoing all the current market values of similar properties! You won’t be disappointed if you chose him to represent you.’

‘We had the pleasure of dealing with Stefon for the sale of our property at 14 Brian St, Ryde and couldn’t be happier. Stefon is very professional and his communication and advice was excellent. He kept us informed and relaxed throughout the sale. He came to our house two times a week during the campaign to keep us updated and share his strategy with us. Our property was passed in at auction though Stefon managed to sell it on the following Monday. The final price was beyond expectation and we believe this is only because of hard work and attitude of Stefon and his team. We think his local knowledge and professionalism was key to achieving a quick and impressive result. We are extremely happy with the outcome and would recommend Stefon to all our friends.’

You guys have managed to facilitate a purchase of the unit we thought could be difficult all within 2 weeks. Selling a property is a stressful process for anyone and you have helped to make it as smooth as possible for us. You are absolutely delightful, straightforward and honest. We believe that your knowledge, commitment, dedication, enthusiasm and attentiveness to us as vendors have been incomparable. From the beginning we had confidence we were in the right hands. Later it only proved to us that your focus on end result was beyond question. Most importantly your motivating advice, detailed reporting, persistent follow-ups and all the extra efforts in achieving the best result during the process was appreciated more then you realize.

You guys didn't let us down for any moment but keep exceeding our expectation from the very beginning right to the moment we closed the deal. Most importantly, your week by week report and analysis and ultimately advise us that it will be a better outcome to sell before auction.

He organised regular and detailed meet ups whenever he felt there was any issue to discuss no matter how big or small, and he was always very patient and enthusiastic when explaining things to us. We felt like Stefon was the most positive and optimistic agent we could have chosen and we could not be more pleased with his service. We felt that his experience in this field really helped us make the best possible choices for our home and we are happy with the result, not to mention he provides brilliant strategies for selling or even progressing in terms of investment opportunities. He always kept us up to date with updates about our property, the market and possible paths we could take. Thanks again to you for your hard work Stefon!'

'Stefon and James have been proactive and pragmatic throughout selling my property, trying to achieve the best price in current market conditions. Both met with me and my father multiple times while I was shortlisting suitable agents. The team understood my requirements in relation to using the right marketing mix to get targeted exposure, whilst keeping costs down. More importantly, the team kept me updated throughout the negotiation process for the two different sales, as one fell through. I appreciate the swiftness in revising strategy and approach, and was pleased at the significantly better outcome.'

'I am writing this letter to congratulate Stefon Bertram of McGrath Estate Agents in his effort to sell our property at 125 Constitution Rd, West Ryde. I was thrilled with the result. The house was sold at the end of the first opening day and also passed our reserved price. At first, I hesitate for the premium price we have to pay him but the end result proved to be worthwhile. Thanks to his dealing abilities and communication skills that lead him to this success. I have no regret to use Stefon from McGrath and I will continue to use him again in the future.'

'Dear Stefon,

Vinnie and I have been very pleased with your honesty, attentiveness, communication, and advice throughout the entire process. Your professional approach was appreciated right from our very first meeting you explained the sale/auction process thoroughly.

When we took the tough decision to sell our family home we were keen for you to be in control of the sale as we felt you were the best real estate agent in the area. We had faith in you from the beginning and you certainly lived up to our expectations. The sale of one's family home is an emotional time and we were not looking forward to the stress that can come with the process. It is with thanks that you saved us this anguish and made it very painless and dare we say pleasurable experience.

We would like to sincerely thank you and the McGrath Estate team for the great result you achieved for our family.'

'Hi Stefon, I would like to take the opportunity to express my sincere thanks in selling my unit in Ryde. I couldn’t have been happier with the price you achieved for the sale of my property. When I decided to sell I was apprehensive but your “can do” attitude coupled with your positive approach made the process much less stressful. As I had worked with you when I decided to rent out my unit I knew you were the right person to sell it and you didn’t disappoint me. As I have always lived in Ryde, both as a child and adult your knowledge of the area was very impressive. You are one of the most professional people I have met not only in the real estate but in business. I would have no hesitation in recommending Stefon to anyone looking to selling their property.'

‘Commission rate has never been the only measurement for selling agent. Stefon, not being the cheapest agent, but definitely is the most valuable agent. After fully research and consideration, we chose him as our property selling agent. We would never regret for our decision, instead, we felt extremely lucky him as our exclusive selling agent. Reliance upon his sharp sense of local area, accuracy evaluation of the property, huge database and excellent teamwork (incl. providing all pre sale service), our property was sold in unbelievable high price (500K higher than market guide price) within 24 hours even without one open house, though there is a fatal blemish on our property (4 feet wide easement in driveway). It is our fortune to have this outcome, not only the price, but also the swiftness, as well no open house is required which gave us much relieve. All the properties in his hand like his own kids, no matter they are luxury or shabby, he could always find its highlight and amplify it, lessen the weakness. He focuses on client benefit even not make much difference for the commission. Madly, he is constantly trying hard to achieve amazing result. He is so passionate to his career, keen to take challenge, turn impossible into possible. As none native language speaker, we feel language has never been a barrier between us. Stefon communicates effectively and efficiently with plain English in sense of humour. We strongly recommend him, will appoint him next time absolutely.’

'We purchased our first home together through Stefon and found the experience to be very easy and stress free – which is welcoming at a time that can be very stressful! Stefon was great in keeping in touch with us and giving us information about the property market in our suburb from time to time. Once we made a decision to sell our house Stefon was an obvious choice. At that stage he was with McGrath which was an added bonus. Throughout the selling experience Stefon and his team, James, Megan and Maggie were very accommodating and kept us well informed. Stefon made time with us each week to go through all developments and provided advice when needed. Although the property didn’t sell at auction, the momentum and attention that Stefon and the team gave to the property did not diminish. Stefon goes above and beyond what is required and expected of an agent and has even offered to assist us in buying a new property!. We would not hesitate in recommending him and working with him in the future!'

'Hi Stefon,

Thank you so much for you assistance with the recent sale of my home.

Making any decisions when it comes to buying or selling property is overwhelming at the best of times, and as this was my first property sale, having a team of highly experienced professionals with extensive knowledge of the industry, market and location was truly invaluable. You and your team were exceptional throughout the entire process and specifically with communication, efficiency, and always with a friendly smile and sense of humour.

I will never hesitate to recommend you as my preferred agent to my friends and family. Thanks again for all your hard work. Truly appreciated.'

I would like to endorse and thank Zing Liu for her hard work and effort she put in to selling my property.
I have know Zing since 2014 as a buyer and as a seller and on both accounts, she has been patient, attentive to enquiries and the right agent to do the job. Personally she has taught me a lot about the real estate industry which has been an invaluable lesson that I will carry with me for a long time.

Zing is constantly providing me updates whether its via phone call or text, she makes last ditch effort to come and visit me and give me face-to-face updates what ever hour of the day is suitable to me at least every week. This has helped me know the market and where my property stands in the market. She does a thorough research of the local area and goes above and beyond to find out information that will help me with my property search or sale. I am very happy with the service and look forward to further deals in the future.

'I was extremely happy with Stefon and his team that looked after the sale of my unit recently in Price St. Stefon was very thorough at our initial meeting and came prepared with statistics of recent sales. He explained their advertising package and how they attract buyers through this and through they're knowledge of clients on their buying list. Within a day photos were taken and 2 days later my property was on the market, a much quicker turn around than other agents could offer! Once it was on the market the open houses began where there were always 2 agents to answer possible buyer questions (James was also awesome and very proactive in getting buyers through). They took potential buyers through during the week as well because i wanted the property sold. Stefon also called people who had looked through other properties and informed them of my place, to get more people through the door. Throughout the process Stefon regularly contacted me to keep me in the loop with how things were traveling. Once we had a buyer he also managed to organise a shorter settlement which helped me out immensely. I can't recommend Stefon and his team at McGrath highly enough.'

'Dear Stefon & Team, Thank you again for the amazing job you did when selling our property in Ryde. As you know we were on the market with another Ryde agent for 7 weeks prior to moving the property to McGrath. What you may not know is that when deciding on agents the first time our decision was based on the cheapest fee’s and convenience of having the property and tenant managed through the same agency. After 7 long weeks with the other agent they had received several offers, however the offers were all much below our expectations, this made us very sceptical of the chances of selling the property. To our surprise you were able to sell the property with only 2 opening inspections (in a week) for $10,000 more than any previous offers! We are thrilled with the result and so happy we moved forward with your advice. We appreciate all the help of both you and your team, we have already recommended you to many of our friends!'

I have worked with many agents over the years and have never had such a positive experience. Things were well planned, any issues were followed up quickly and your natural enthusiasm was evident to all of the potential buyers and to us. Every member of the team was a delight. I am sure you will have a long and successful career in this industry as you are what every owner hopes they find when making the decision to sell. I will strongly recommend you to all of our friends in the area, it was a great experience. Thanks so much for a job well done.'

'Dear Stefon, In the current Sydney property market, it should not be very hard to sell your property, especially for a booming suburbs like North Ryde. There are many good Real Estate agents that can get a good result for our property. Our challenge is to find an Agent who can achieve a great result for our property! We were looking for someone who is full of energy, passion, integrity and more importantly, natural talent to represent us. We were looking for someone who loves breaking their own records of achievement and achieving the unthinkable. After meeting with you, we just know that you are the right agent for our property. You patiently explained the current market situation to us, and what we can achieve with our property. With a lot of passion and enthusiasm you went through the strategies on how to market our property. Throughout our dealing with you and your team, you have always been professional and prompt, even returning our calls when you’re overseas. We couldn't believe how quickly you sold our property. Thank you so much for being very honest to us from the beginning, no false promises. Not only you represent us well, you changed our life!'

'Following the passing of our parents, it was time to sell the family home of 60+ years. After careful consideration of several real estate agents we settled on Stefon Bertram and his team from McGrath. This turned out to be a great decision! At all times Stefon and his team were very friendly and always approachable. They kept us informed of progress every step of the way. The weekly meetings were very detailed and informative, and gave us confidence that they were working hard to achieve the best possible outcome. Communication was outstanding. Stefon had a structured, professional approach to selling our property. We trusted them with every aspect of our sale and they didn’t let us down. This included marketing, advertised price guide, reserve price and vendor bid. Our house sold at auction on 16 May 2015, well above reserve price and above our expectations. On the day, we commented that if Mum and Dad were still alive, they would be extremely proud of the outcome. In fact, Dad probably wouldn’t believe it!'

'We had the pleasure of dealing with Stefon for the sale of our property at 14 Brain Street Ryde and couldn't be happier. Stefon is very professional and his communication and advice was excellent. He kept us informed and relaxed throughout the sale. He came to our house two times a week during the campaign to keep us updated and share his strategy with us. Our property was passed in at auction though Stefon managed to sell it on the following Monday. The final price was beyond expectation and we believe this is only because of hard work and attitude of Stefon and his team. We think his local knowledge and professionalism was key to achieving a quick and impressive result. We are extremely happy with the outcome and would recommend Stefon to all our friends.''

We were very impressed by the commitment undertaken by you and your team, in particular, that we were consulted on every process and kept well informed of the day to day developments connected to the sale of our home. We greatly appreciated your professional and honest approach. The end result far exceeded our expectations and this was due, in no small measure, to the dedication and energy displayed by you and your team in the weeks leading up to the sale.

'推荐信 我们认识Stefon Bertram 是通过一个澳洲朋友,这个澳洲朋友的房子三年前在 Stefon 的努力下成功拍卖。在此之前,他的房子经历过五个代理人,但是都没有能够达到他的理想价格。我们也寻找过几个代理,都不觉得满意,所以在这个朋友的推荐下,我们就和Stefon Bertram联系上了。我们的房子最近成功拍卖,我们非常满意拍卖结果。 Stefon是一个诚恳和努力工作的人,更主要的是他有一种工作的热情,为卖家着想,争取最大限度地达到你所想要的结果,这是很多代理人所缺少的。有些代理人往往不会做出像Stefon这样的努力,因为多卖两万和少卖两万对他们来讲,所获得的收入是不会有太大的区别的,但是对卖家来讲,就不同了。我们觉得很幸运,找到了 Stefon这个代理,他的真诚态度,努力工作精神和热情使我们的房子能够成功拍卖。 Stefon还是一个很有策略的人,他会根据卖家的房子情况,强调突出其优点,淡化其弱点。我们的房子隔壁是一个轻工业仓库,同时我们家又是在一个丁字路口处,但是Stefon 运用不同的策略,突出我们家的优点,尽管开始的时候没有多少人来看房,但是在他调整了一些策略后,看房的人们踊跃,拍卖时的竞争者也增加了。 尽管英语不是我们的母语,很多卖房的专业术语我们也不懂,但是我们丝毫都没有觉得在交流上和Stefon有任何问题和障碍。Stefon总是耐心地给我们做解释,留下书面材料给我们看,给我们充足的时间去搞清楚问题和思考。所以我们之间的交流及合作是很愉快也是很有效率的。 我们认为Stefon 是我们遇到的最好的代理人,我们觉得很幸运遇到了他这样的售房代理,使我们的房子能够顺利拍卖,并且获得了一个令人满意的结果,因此我们也愿意向我们的朋友们推荐他。如果您有任何询问'

'Dear Stefon Thank you for your email. My husband and I had been thinking about selling our house for over a year. As always our letterbox was filled with flyers from estate agents and my husband had chosen Stefon to come in and give an appraisal. He came and we discussed our plan for the future, he listened and gave his opinion from a Real Estate point of view. He kept in touch with us over the year and we talked about possibilities. The time came to act on our dream so the process of selling our family home commenced. The McGrath sales team with Stefon at the helm is like a well-oiled machine, within days we had photos taken, the add was up on the net and in the local newspaper, open house dates were organised and we had a complete schedule of how the process was going to happen. Everything went like clockwork. We had open communication with Stefon who came and talked to us at least once a week, which was a great comfort because this was an emotional time for us – we had lived in this house for 26 years. The outcome of the auction was a positive one and Stefon and his time were there being professional and supportive. Stefon is very good at selling houses and he has fine-tuned the process so I would highly recommend him.'

I am very grateful for James' continued professionalism and service and will highly recommend you and your team to friends and family looking to buy and sell in the area.
