Great local area knowledge, astute negotiator

Verified by RateMyAgent

James recently sold my mothers apartment in Manly. We were skeptical going to market as, historically, properties such as this had not sold well, if at all. James was however quietly confident with listing and marketing the property. He set a realistic price point so as not to artificially raise expectations for both buyer and seller.

James proved himself to be an astute negotiator achieving an impressive final sale price on the property.

Exceptional customer service and great sales results

Verified by RateMyAgent

My partner and I have bought and sold four properties with with James Smyth and his team at Smyth Estate Agents. They say the best business is referral business and my experience with James, his sales colleague, John and the team at Smyth Estate Agents has been nothing short of exceptional.

I had the experience of discussing my potential sales with other local agents. One such (unnamed) agency is quite large and, on face value, appears to have a high volume of successful sales. However, a closer analysis of some of those sales revealed that the prices achieved did not appear to be the best they could have been. I also had direct experience of the same agency under quoting and over quoting, in that the price I was quoted that they claimed they could achieve for my property was 'inflated' in an effort to get my business. I also saw the same agency 'underquote' to potential buyers in order to attract interest. This had the effect of artificially raising buyers expectations that properties may sell for a lower price, when in fact the properties sold for much more, which led to buyer frustration and disappointment.

In contrast, James was conservative and realistic in his price guide. He provided a starting price to potential buyers and gave me a price range. During the sales process, James consistently advised that his aim was to achieve the best price possible for my properties. He assembled a thorough package of information on other sales in the area and market trends and then presented the information in such a way that enabled me to understand the basis for his appraisal. My properties were located in Freshwater and Manly.

James has resided in the area for a lengthy period and his knowledge and familiarity with the area was obvious and of immense benefit to myself and I'm sure to buyers. I have also purchased a property through James, during which he also provided a high level of customer service and sound advice.

Simply Outstanding

Verified by RateMyAgent

James provided a highly personalized and professional service.  He was the only agent to spend the time properly researching the market to help me set my expectations accordingly.  He went well beyond the generic research provided by the other agents I spoke with and then exceeded the very high price expectations he had already set within a very short time period. 

His professionalism and communication is outstanding, I never waited more than 30 minutes for James to return a call, email or text.  He also provided detailed analysis of the market up front and then at each stage of the process as well as the opens and kept me up to date constantly of any activities.  He actively worked to minimize marketing costs but at the same time to maximise exposure to ensure a difficult to sell property was given every opportunity to shine to its target market.   

James' 100% sell rate over 2019 is a very obvious testament to his knowledge of the market, his absolute commitment to selling every property for the very best price possible, and his recruitment of an amazing team of like-minded people.

Thanks for a great experience and outcome
