Landlord Testimonials

James is a great guy with a brilliant knowledge of the Northern Beaches property market

James listed our property and exceeded all of our expectations with the result he achieved. The communication throughout the whole sale process was exceptional to say the least.  We would highly recommend James and his team to any clients wishing to sell.
We have also had the privilege of dealing with Rana Stevens who heads up the rental team for SEA Smyth Estate Agents over the last 3 years. We can't praise Rana and her team enough with regard to the effort they put in and the way they communicate with us on any issues that arise.  They are very professional and promptly account for and transfer rental income.
James and his whole team are an elite and well managed outfit.

Long-term rental management and eventual sale of property

James and the team at Smyth Estate Agents managed the rental of my property at Fairlight for five years before I made the decision to sell.
The team were great working with the tenants and me - we had the same tenants for the 5 years.
When the decision was made to sell, James was able to guide me through the process, offering balanced and sensible answers to my many questions from the initial requirements all the way to exchange of contracts.

Friendly, honest and professional

My husband and I have no doubts that we chose the best agent to sell our property. Previous to selling, we employed James and his team at SEA to manage our property as a rental and the service was without fault for the 2yrs.
James and his staff are highly knowledgeable in all areas of real estate. Communication has been open, professional, timely and consistent. My husband and I have relied largely on James to advise us on the entire selling process and he has also been central in answering questions about buying. James guided us through our selling campaign seamlessly.
We put complete trust in James and his team and it certainly paid off. James is straight talking, professional and honest in his dealings and strives to reach the best result for his clients. Thank you James and the friendly team at SEA.

Have always found James to be personable, very honest and realistic with market value

Thank you, James, Rana and the Team of Smyth Estate Agents for both the sale of my property and rental managing for the past 2 years. Rana, and the rental team have kept me informed throughout the process and communication was great. Being in Indonesia for periods of time was no barrier to communications or updates.
James has a very approachable personality which made buyers feel comfortable. He is also very present during the sale campaign, i.e. was at every open for inspection (despite other properties on the market), provided detailed reports on inspection statistics and devoted to get us the best outcome.
Overall he exceeded my expectations with the end result.  He is very knowledgeable of the property market and is highly recommended. I would highly recommend Smyth Real Estate for both rental agent and sale of your property.
Thank you TEAM Smyth
