We would like to pass on our thanks to George Brand Real Estate in particular Anthony Arena. His advice on setting a price and marketing of our properties was spot on and his feed back to us during the process of selling was extremely good. Anthony kept us informed of all the developments, and with his pleasant manner and diligence he is in danger of giving real estate agents a good name
ALWAYS KEPT IN REGULAR CONTACT
From the first viewing of the property Maree provided knowledge of the property and kept the lines of communication open. The process of the sale was quiet intense as it happened so quickly and was something completely foreign to me, being a tender process, however throughout the whole process Maree and her team always made themselves available, and answering any questions I had. I would definitely recommend the team at George Brand Kincumber.

We decided to sell our home of the past 5 years on the spur of the moment and after some deliberation decided to invite Kerrie to be our Agent for the sale. We were delighted that our home sold straight after the first open house. Kerrie handled our sale with so much care and dedication that I felt like I had found a new friend. She made sure that we were informed of every piece of information along the way and that that we were comfortable with and fully aware of all the steps involved in completing the sale.
She knew that this was one of the most challenging times of our lives and was available day or night to discuss anything that was on our minds.
Kerrie treated our home as a “special” place and went beyond what was required of her to ensure that it was presented at its very best at all times. Kerrie was a pleasure to deal with throughout the whole process and gave us peace of mind every step of the way.
11 Saddlers Way, Wyee Point. April 2014 - To: Joanne Tinsley - From: Neal Family. I have been looking for property to build a new home for many months now. Finally found what we were looking with the help and support of the George brand Real Estate agency Wyee NSW and especially Joanne Tinsley agent knowledge of the market and the support of the office staff made the purchase an enjoyable experience! I came along with the usual reservations with many failed attempts at securing the purchasing Acreage on the Central Coast, it was brilliant a positive experience and I have no hesitation in recommendation the services of George brand Real Estate agency Wyee NSW. PS. Just a quick note to say thanks for your assistance and wealth of knowledge and the pleasurable experience and service that was offered. Warmest regards, Mitchell Neal, Blue Haven NSW
Dear Deborah, It gives me great pleasure to be given this opportunity to provide a reference for the Property Management team at George Brand Real Estate. I have been a landlord for over 30 years with properties in many parts of coastal NSW and also Sydney.
The team at George Brand have looked after 2 of these properties at Terrigal for many years. The friendly, efficient and professional way they carry out their duties, makes them stand out as the best that I deal with. Kind Regards, Ron
We have been dealing with George Brand Real Estate since the early 2000's and found them to be very professional in real estate matters. At the same time we have also dealt with Raine and Horne, Ray White and Star Partners (East Gosford) but found George Brand to be superior in many ways. The property managers and other staff at George Brand are more caring and helpful, and always willing to provide more than just the normal service for us.
Dear Deb and the team at George Brand, we would like to thank you for everything you have done for us since April 2007. Our decision to go with George Brand Real Estate as the managers of our property was the best decision. We basically left our home in the hands of Deb and her team and never had to worry about a thing. If something needed to be fixed, they organised it we didn't need to worry about any extra phone calls and organisational worries which suited us being an hour away.
Each time we spoke to Deb, Kellie, Anthony or anyone else from George Brand on the phone, they always made us feel valued and important regardless of the topic or situation. Nothing was ever a hassle or to hard for them. We understand that managing a rental property is a very busy job, and Deb has been an outstanding, organised and proactive manager, as well as a genuine and lovely person.
Matthew Ellis was the salesman from George Brand Real Estate Copacabana, who sold our home in November 2011. During the sales period he was always obliging and kept us informed to what was happening and worked hard to follow up any enquiries. His determination gave us the confidence we had in him. We also appreciated the courtesy he showed us. We wish him good fortunes in his chosen profession.
It gives me great pleasure to recommend this delightful young man. I have recently purchased a property in Copacabana NSW and Matthew was the real estate agent who showed me through the property and finalised the deal. I found Matthew to be courteous and able to give me a sense of confidence in his negotiations. He had an amazing ability to negotiate the price with me, yet not make me feel pressured. I can highly recommend him to any one who may be thinking of hiring him.
Tom not only negotiated a higher price for our house than that estimated by others, but also was able to sort a reduced settlement period as we were moving abroad.
All was done with efficiency and calmness and enabled a troublefree sale leaving both vendor and buyer happy.
Would heartily recommend for anyone who is not only selling, but fed up of the regular agents who don't seem to want to work for their money.”
I want to write, to express my sincere appreciation for the way your office and in particular your salesman Anthony Arena helped us in finding our new home. Having sold our home after twenty years living in Pretty Beach, we were apprehensive at the thought of finding a new home and the challenges in dealing with real estate agents. I would like to thank you for the professional way in which your office treated our purchase, particularly with an extended delay from the offer being accepted to exchange. Anthony Arena demonstrated utmost professionalism and right through the process we felt he treated us with both dignity and integrity, whilst still displaying a strong interpersonal approach. I have the highest respect for Anthony Arena and I commend you in developing an office where it's sales people can be completely trustworthy and supportive. I will be highly recommending your office to anyone needing an agent or looking for a home . Please pass on my sincere appreciation to Anthony Arena and your sales team. We are finally in our home and absolutely loving it!
We were very happy with the speed in which the sale of our house was conducted and the prompt thorough manner that Maree Watson carried right through from sale to settlement.
Just a quick note to thank you for your excellent service to us in our recent purchase of 4 Karuah it was much appreciated.
All went through very smoothly and we are very pleased!
I have now sold several properties with Kayla and she has consistently delivered a great result. Kayla communicates regularly and you always know where you are at throughout the process. Highly recommended.
Colin carefully advised us on how best to approach. He knows the local market.
15 Watanga Crescent, Wyee Point. After comparing a number of Real Estate Agencies to sell our property, we elected to engage Joanne Tinsley of George Brand Real Estate Wyee. From the outset, we were confident that with Joanne's comprehensive market knowledge and persistence, that she would invariably be capable of achieving a superior sale price for us than that of her competitors. Joanne provided us with details of a clear and proven strategy on how she would sell our house and maintained regular, clear and informative dialogue throughout. Any initial comparisons of agent commissions became inconsequential with the benefits of achieving a superior sale price outweighing what may have initially been perceived as a better deal. With our property now sold in a relatively short amount of time and the 'superior sale price' achieved, we can highly recommend Joanne Tinsley to sell your property.
53, Mulwala Drive, Wyee Point. Simply visit George brand real estate Wyee and ask for Joanne or Kelly if you are thinking of selling or buying in the area.We had our property for sale with a previous agent and did not meet great satisfaction, we were very unhappy with the way we were treated making the whole experience stressful eventually becoming disenchanted with real estate agents. Then we changed to George brand real estate Wyee and our direction changed for the better, from the first contact, we noticed how professional they were, they listened and respected our decisions and took us to the next level of selling our home. In the short amount of time, they found buyers in the first two weeks and got us a good price for our home it was a pleasure to have them working for us. They went far and beyond and were totally genuine, we would highly recommend them to anyone selling as they are on the jackpot of the area. I /we would definitely refer to them again especially for their respect and honesty.
1 Kiewa Close, Wyee Point. Thank you for selling our house in wyee point. We do appreciate the high quality of service, honesty and punctuality. What was promised to be done was always delivered satisfactorily. Kelly, Joanne and the rest of the staff were extremely helpful. To be recommended for their excellent service and the quality of experience in the field of real estate in general.
3 Kiewa Close, Wyee Point. Thank you to Joanne Tinsley for her professionalism & hard work to prepare our property for sale. We are very thankful to Joanne & we are devastated we had to withdraw our home from the market.We would highly recommend Joanne & will use her services when we do put our house on the market in the future.
39 Ruttleys Rd, Wyee. Dear Joanne. I am delighted that my land has finally been sold. It has taken a little longer than I had imagined it would, however I do recognise that it was difficult to find a buyer for land in such a tough market. I would have loved to have achieved a higher price however in the end the price that I received I believe reflected the market conditions. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the rest of the team for all your hard work and would definitely use you for any properties I may sell in the future.
Dear Kyle, A note to thank you for the excellent way you and your collegues handled the sale of our property at Austral Ave, Avoca Beach. Your initial advice , the transparency in regard to the sale price you advised, your consistent consultation about the process and your frank and open advice as required was greatly appreciated. As you are aware, we faced a very difficult market and for a short period of time it was necessary to lease the property. The leasing services provided by your company were extremely professional, well informed and timely communications occurred throughout the process. I always had absolute confidence in the integrity and openness of the information I was provided on price, bids and your advice on the transaction. You are free to use this letter to commend your services to any prospective clients . I look forward to catching up for a drink with you when I am next in Avoca.
We recently bought a house with Maree and we were pleasantly surprised to be treated fairly after a few bad experiences with different real estate agents. I am sure Maree will look after you as well as she looked after us. We love our new house! Thank you Maree!
“To sell a house and be hassle free,
Try George Brand and ask for Maree”
The sale of our house was all done professionally and Maree Watson is a star performer.
Exceptional Agent, Exceptional Service, Exceptional Communication, Exceptional Negotiation
Matthew Ellis is by far one of the best Real Estate Agents on the Central Coast. Matthew went above and beyond in delivering an outstanding result in the sale of our property. He communicated throughout the entire process from beginning to end, so we were aware of every detail.We couldn't have asked for a more professional agent and he is definitely who we will now recommend to our friends and family who are looking to sell their properties. Outstanding!!!!

We just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to Tim Wooodham for selling our home. You were the ultimate professional at all times and were always so polite, respectful and calm, so calm! which we really appreciated. We were confident in how you chose to market our home and were always kept well informed of any developments. Any concerns we had were openly discussed and acted upon immediately. We could not have asked for any more from our agent. We will not hesitate to have you list our home again in the future and will certainly recommend you to whoever will listen. All the very best.
EXCELLENT IN BUILDING RAPPORT WITH ALL STAKEHOLDERS
"Nathan was extremely professional on all levels. His knowledge of the real estate market along with his polite and respectful demeanour was instrumental in building confidence in us that he was the right person to sell our house. Nathan made himself available to us at all times and kept us up to date with the offers that clients were making. Nathan was able to secure the price we wanted for the house. I would recommend Nathan to anyone who was wanting to buy or sell a property."
Vendor Review - Recommended by Paul Gilmore June 2017
Matthew was extremely helpful throughout the purchasing process, from actively helping me to find a suitable property through to ensuring that my purchase was finalised asap, which he did by coming to me after office hours on a Friday so that I could sign the contract. Due to his level of service and the experience I had with Matthew I would have no hesitation in recommending his services to other buyers and sellers.
We recently sold our house at Copacabana with Tim Woodham. His knowledge of the market and skills in selling were clearly evident, he kept us closely informed at all stages of the sale, and I felt our input and expectations were valued by him. At no time did we feel pressured or unsure, and his experience in the overall process was greatly reassuring.
THE BEST AGENT ON THE CENTRAL COAST
I highly recommend Matt Ellis to sell my home anytime He is attentive to our needs is hard working and completly stress free sold my home quickly and is currently seeking new accommodation for us

Tom and his staff provided great service from providing advice about getting the property ready for sale, negotiation and the final outcome. I highly recommend Tom and the staff at George Brand Kincumber!”
We were delighted that the Sale of our property was achieved within three weeks. We attribute this success to the professional manner in which Tim Woodham and the Staff of George Brand at Copacabana handled the process. We found Tim to be very easy to liaise with and he communicated frequently throughout the Marketing and Sales period. Tim's calm and confident approach ensured that the Sale went smoothly and without any stress to us. We have no hesitation in recommending Tim Woodham to look after your property needs.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tim Woodham. He looked after our house sale with great skill underpinned by a deep knowledge of the local market. He kept us well informed throughout and his advice was excellent. Thank you Tim!
Anthony is a highly competent and experienced agent who is very knowledgeable with regards to property on the Central Coast. All our dealings with our properties have been managed whilst we were abroad or interstate seamlessly. We would highly recommend Anthony to look after anyone who is selling or buying a property in the central coast. Anthony is not only an exceptional agent, he is personable, has attention to detail and is funny! We would not hesitate to provide personal references to anyone if requested. For favourable results - contact Anthony - he always gets back you and always keeps you in the loop. Anthony has excellent market knowledge, communication skills, credibility and negotiation skills.
“My partner and I had been looking to buy a property on the Central Coast for some time and have encountered many agents during our search. Joe was, without a doubt, the best agent we have dealt with. He was responsive, genuine and extremely helpful. He was happy to assist us with various inquiries and, in certain cases, went above and beyond the call of duty to assist us. I would highly recommend Joe to any vendors looking to sell.”
Anthony has just negotiated the sale of our house and we cannot speak highly enough of him. His local knowledge of the Avoca Beach area is second to none, and he managed to secure a sale price which was higher than our expectations. We found him to be completely open and honest which is refreshing, and a lot of other agents could learn a lot from him.
We therefore would have no hesitation in recommending Anthony as he is a credit to George Brand Avoca Beach and to his profession. (6 Comito Close, Avoca Beach - March 17)
Superb and a really positive experience!

This was a great choice of mine. Brooke went above and beyond what I thought an agent would do. Very approachable, friendly, always available and happy to fit in with any suggestion. She got me exactly the figure I wanted for the property and I would recommend her to anyone looking for an extremely competent agent. If there was 10-star rating, I would give her 10 stars! Thank you Brooke.
Perfect Sale - Nov 2017
Matthew Ellis of George Brand Avoca, did a brilliant job selling our property at Copacabana. Ever since I mentioned to him, a couple of years back, that we were thinking about selling, he would call every few months to keep me updated about the market status in the area. He was never pushy and from our first conversation, I always felt comfortable chatting with him and sensed he was honest and reliable. When we decided the time was right, Matthew was the logical choice, and we weren't disappointed. Everything went exactly as Matthew explained and we ended up selling the property not only quickly, but at a price quite a bit higher than we had hoped for. Everything from Matthew's advice on marketing the property, through to his help negotiating with prospective buyers to reach a final price, worked as he described, making the whole process very painless. It felt like Matthew was really working with us to get the very best outcome. I would not hesitate to recommend Matthew Ellis as not only a great real estate agent, but also as an honest, easy to work with person of integrity.
Outstanding Customer Service - 8 Dec 2017.
We first meet Matthew 11 months ago at an open house when we first started our housing search, 11 months later we finally found a place. At that first open house I was very impressed with Matthews market and area knowledge and attention to detail, but the thing that really got me was his follow up, after each open he'd be on the phone to see how things went and if we were interested. Throughout our search Matthew would always let us know of new properties coming onto the market and arrange private inspections if the times didn't line up. I work in the customer service industry myself and I must say I've never receive such a high level of service from anyone I've dealt with. As it turns out we brought our new house from Matthew after that long search and of coarse had no hesitation in listing our old place with Matthew, Matt sold our place in just 3 weeks and that was due to his hard work, outstanding customer service and going the extra mile. We cant recommend Matthew Ellis highly enough for buying or selling your home.
From sign to completion sale Matt Rogers provided the total package all professional agents should provide and has indeed set the bar pretty high as an example for all others to follow. Matt has communicated well to me during the sale process and at all times been courteous, helpful, informative and friendly. Matt exhibited a lot of confidence in himself and his knowledge of the area to achieve the goals required and the resultant and timely sale of my property supports this. Based on my experience - I would not hesitate in recommending Matt to any prospective purchaser / seller.
Thank You Matthew! - 12 Oct 2017
We chose Matthew Ellis as the agent to sell our home because of his local knowledge, reputation and genuine character. Throughout the whole process he has been professional, enthusiastic and understanding of our wants and needs. His marketing strategy worked and the house sold in the first week with him being able to negotiate a price that exceeded our expectations. It has been a pleasure dealing with Matthew and we would be happy to recommend him to anyone wanting to sell their home.
A pleasure to have done business with Mark. The whole George Brand team have been wonderful.
I have bought and sold quite a few times in my 68 years and the sale of 256 Binalong Way with Andre Kubecka was by far the easiest I have experienced. Andre's strategy before the sale worked superbly during the selling period. This blole knows his stuff and the Central Coast area, and he worked hard for us, the client. We were kept in touch with all appropriate matters to do with the sale and his ethics were beyond reproach. We were delighted with the sale price but even more delighted with the way the sale was conducted.
Linda Mills handled the sale of my home with 100% professionalism. I was extremely happy with the outcome of the sale. Thank you Linda and George Brand Real Estate.
I wanted to pass on our compliments to your agency regarding our interaction with one of your team. We were fortunate enough to have Elsa show us through two properties that you have listed, and were delighted with the customer service that she provided us. It is, unfortunately, a rare thing in the rental sphere in this day and age to encounter someone with the kind of passion for customer service, and care for potential clients that Elsa showed us today. We were quite flummoxed to be honest - in the best possible way. Even if we don't end up as a client of your agency as tenants, we will definitely be seeking you out when the time comes for us to buy. Please pass on our appreciation for the magnificent service that Elsa provided us today to her manager, as she is most certainly a rare creature when it comes to providing an overwhelmingly positive experience during the oft times arduous experience of wading through the murky waters of the rental market.
“Tom was very informative with market information, and always returned with feedback after every inspection. Tom’s professional and casual approach is what attracted us to select him to be our agent, and we would have no problems in recommending him to anyone.”
“We would personally like to thank Tom and all the staff at George Brand Real Estate for their hard working commitment and for achieving our desired outcome. Thomas’s personal manner & professionalism made him an absolute pleasure to deal with. He managed to sell the property within 2 weeks and got the price we were asking for.”
Thanks Maree, we are very happy you emailed us on the very day I was thinking it was time to find another agent…..the best thing to have happened
Betty and I would like to express our appreciation for the excellent assistance you have provided to us in selling our house. We would certainly recommend to anyone, you and your team, requiring similar assistance.
My sincere thanks for your assistance in finding me my new home. Once I had explained the criteria I know you made every effort to find the perfect property, even knocking on doors of houses you thought suitable. I greatly appreciate your hard work and hope you have continued success matching homes and owners.
October 2014. - 40 Darlingup Road, Wyee. NSW. 2259. I have just recently sold my house in Wyee. My Agent was George Brand Wyee and my sales representative was Joanne Tinsley. I was looking for someone I could trust to sell my home and Joanne proved to be this person, everything she promised me she would do she did with enthusiasm and goodwill. The whole process was very fluid and within two months Joanne had me a reliable buyer and an exchange of contracts. Thank you Joanne for you hard work and professionalism, it is much appreciated.
August 2014. 6 Jabbarup Road, Wyee. We would very much like to thank Joanne for her help in selling our home at Wyee.

Dear Anthony, thank you for finding the buyer for my 3/10 Cape Three Points Road property. It was a good result and I was very happy with the way you handled the sale.
Hi Deborah, I meant to send this earlier. I have really appreciated the level of service I have received from you in regards to the re tenanting of my residence at 1/25 Rd Avoca Beach. Nothing has been too much trouble for you and it has made my life alot easier and simpler to get everything done in such a short time. I look forward to having a successful relationship with George Brand R/E for a long time with service such as yours provided.

The advertising on the internet was excellent and your discussions with potential buyers played a huge part in bringing about a sale.We appreciated your helpful advice, clear explanations, good humor and straight shooting regarding the realities both for us as vendor and for possible buyers.You always did what you said you would do and were happy to help us in any way. This has meant that we have had every confidence in you.

To whom it may concern,
Having worked in sales and marketing for Fifteen years, the majority being for one of the World`s Largest and fastest growing Car manufacturers, I believe I have the ability to recognise the difference between average and very good sales people.
I initially come in contact with Joanne when we decided to sell our 8th property after carrying out investigations of recent successful sales in our local vacinity.
I expected and recieved service which was diligent and information which was both confidential and accurate.
Joanne`s determination to achieve our expectations were exceeded and the process was seamless throughout.
In conclusion I would recommend Joanne Tinsley for any future real Estate sales transaction.
"After living in our home for 20 years it was quite a stressful situation to contemplate selling and moving. The way Tom handled the sale from our first meeting until accepting the final offer, all within less than 2 weeks, was done in a professional and calm manner. Tom kept us notified every step of the way and the final outcome well exceeded our expectations. We have told our friends and neighbours if they are considering selling make sure they contact Tom O'Gorman at George Brand Real Estate."
"Truly the best selling experience ever! Tom was professional, knowledgeable and extremely helpful, he made it the whole selling experience seem easy. He kept us informed with feedback and explained the offers with no pressure. The whole team was also brilliant, so impressed with their customer service, we couldn't ask for more and we got a great price too! Thank you!"
Dear Maree, We would like to sincerely thank you for the incredible result you achieved for us. Not only were you very helpful in suggesting refinements to our plans for renovating our property and incredibly insightful and informed about the market conditions in the area, you have managed to sell the property for a price beyond our expectations! We believe that your commitment and dedication to us as clients was exceptional. Your focus on a superior end result was beyond question and your motivating advice and detailed reporting during the process was appreciated more then you realise. From the outset we had confidence we were in the right hands and have no hesitation in recommending you to others who value professionalism, honesty and integrity. Thank you.
I highly recommend Maree Watson of George Brand Real Estate Kincumber. If you are thinking of selling your property or looking to purchase she is very experienced and a pleasure to deal with.When I first met Maree I found her to be very professional and knowledgeable but not at all pushy(Unlike some other agents). Maree made me feel comfortable and confident in her abilities as a Real Estate Agent and she is a great communicator, honest, reliable and hard working.Thank you Maree for making the sale of my home a stress free and easy experience, with an exceptional result that exceeded my expectations.
When it came time to putting our first family home on the market we wanted an agent who was hardworking, reliable and trustworthy. Maree Watson from George Brand, Kincumber was exactly that and more! From our initial consultation with Maree we established a good rapport and knew that not only did she have a wealth of experience in Real Estate but she also understood the unique needs of our family. Maree stayed in constant communication with us every step of the way and provided invaluable advice to assist us in preparing our home for sale. She knew precisely which features of our home to highlight and was able to draw a significant amount of interest in the property prior to our Open for Inspection. We achieved a record sale and would not hesitate to recommend Maree to anyone who is looking for an agent.
Dear Kyle, We are truly appreciative for the professionalism we received during the sale of our house. We thank you and your highly qualified staff for all of your hard work.
Dear Kyle, Thank you for all of the effort you put in during the sale of our home and the period leading up to the sale as well. You did an outstanding job for us all the way through and we are most grateful.
I wish to advise that during the sale of my land in Avoca, Kyle kept in touch with me several times a week to keep me abreast of the interest shown. Thanks to Kyle we did sell our land for a better price than expected. I would recommend his services in the future.
Thank you for the time and hard work you put into trying to find a new house for us. I'm please to say we've bought at Bensville and will move in to our new home in 4 weeks. Exciting Times.
We found George Brand at Kincumber, and Maree Watson to be professional, reliable and friendly.
Maree was also very patient and considerate with my mother Terese.
Thank you for being there when we required your assistance.
Very happy with your final price, that you managed to realize from your buyer.
Would certainly recommend your office
When I met Maree I knew immediately that she would be the person to sell my
house. She was friendly, reassuring and extremely professional. Maree is
clearly passionate about her work and brings years of experience and market
knowledge to the job. Maree exceeded all my expectations in the sale of my
house and she will definitely get my business in the future. Thank you
Maree, for making a difficult task so enjoyable!
“Peter and the team at George Brand Real Estate, The Entrance were always approachable, genuine and a pleasure to deal with. Peter consistently kept us informed and up to date throughout the process of selling
our apartment and he helped us achieve a great result in a short amount of time. We would recommend Peter and his team to anyone thinking of selling or buying in the area.” – Peter & Sandra Noonan
Trudy is an excellent agent, very thorough and is a forward thinker. We bought, sold and bought simultaneously through Trudy and she couldn't have made it any easier. Thanks for a hassle free transaction, great communications and a few laughs along the way.
Thank you for the wonderful service of George Brand in the selling of our property—11 Reynolds Road, Avoca Beach.
Both David and I would like to commend the agent involved, Anthony Arena.
From the first meeting we had with him we were certain that he was a person with whom we could work.
His unique style ensured that he had our trust from the word go.
Anthony proved to be a person of his word---he phoned when he said he would—he was never too busy to take calls from us (usually on his day off) and most importantly for us, he was a person who told the truth.
In an agent entrusted with the selling of one’s house one looks for a person of integrity, hard work and a little humour. It can be stressful!!!
Anthony had it all and I felt it necessary to let his boss know how thrilled we were with his personality and work ethic. Not to mention the result.
I can’t say we look forward to working with you again as we do not intend to move---EVER AGAIN.
To whom it may concern,
Ms Karla Barlow acted as a property management agent for me for my rental property in Kincumber, NSW from Jun-2015 to Jun-2016 (when the property was sold). Karla proved herself very capable in dealing with difficult tenants and often gave me very good advice on appropriate courses of action in difficult situations. Karla was also very meticulous & competent in managing numerous activities (tenant terminations, insurance claims, repairs, renovations, liaising with the selling agent, etc) leading up to the eventual sale of the property; in many cases ‘going the extra mile’ to ensure things went smoothly for me.
At all times, Karla was very responsive to all of my queries and requests. Karla’s natural communication skills and competence made her a pleasure to deal with and I have no hesitation in recommending Karla to others for similar tasks to those she has performed so admirably for me.
“Tom went above and beyond to achieve the best result for us and we couldn’t be happier. When we were looking to buy our house we were very impressed with how Tom ran his open homes, his communication and negotiation skills and the results he achieves; so when it came to selling our home he was the obvious choice! Throughout the whole selling process Tom kept in close contact with us and was always available to put or minds at ease or answer questions – nothing was too much trouble. We cannot recommend Tom more highly!”
“He works tirelessly!
I don't know how he has the energy. He worked tirelessly on our sale, despite all the other sales on his books, which I'm sure received equal attention. He even drove 'out west' late at night for our buyer to sign the contract!”
“Best Agent in Town
It has been a great pleasure to have dealt with Tom O'Gorman during the recent sale of our property. Tom's professionalism, experience and market knowledge achieved a great result and also proved to us that he was the right agent to deal with our property. We highly recommend this outstanding agent.”
Maree's Integrity and Transparency were astounding!Having just purchased our new home, I have to say that having Maree part of the whole experience was an absolute pleasure.
From day one, she was honest and supportive. Having recently sold an apartment, we understood the importance of getting the right agent from a vendor's point of view and Maree worked so hard for both the seller and for us as the buyer. She respected our situation and always kept us informed on developments as they arose.
Maree's integrity sets her aside from many real estate agents we met throughout our journey and we were lucky to have had the opportunity to work with her. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling as she's able to seamlessly marry the two together!
Understanding and a pleasure to work with! Maree has been a delight to work with. She is understanding and works hard behind the scenes throughout the whole process, including giving advice on buying after the sales process. I could not recommend her more highly, definitely a great agent! Her communication throughout the sales process was above and beyond the norm! A real asset to the real estate industry!
Very professional, informative. creative, reliable and would highly recommend! Maree Watson has done a great job in selling our house. She was very professional and informative in the process of selling our property, creative in the marketing of our property, the photos were great. She kept us in touch with everything that was going on and you could call on her at anytime. I would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to sell their property.
From the start to the finish Kayla was there. She is organised and went above and beyond to accomodate our needs.
Andre is a pleasure to deal with. He is competent, and has an excellent knowledge of the local market. He negotiates well, and keeps the seller updated at all times. I am extremely happy with Andre and will use his services as and when required. The end result was satisfying as he obtained a figure for the property, in keeping with my expectations resulting in a effortless settlement Andre is very highly recommended.
After being on the market for a few months with another agency and no results we needed help, a quick phone call to Kayla and within 2 weeks we were back ready to launch with the amazing team at George Brand. Throughout the whole process Kayla amazed us with her professionalism and friendly nature, she kept us informed and provided us vital feedback every step of the way. Small touches like arriving early for the open homes to set up her display of scented candles and brouchers wowed us! She is everything we were looking for in an agent and it really is true, “You can’t go wrong with Kayla Don” Thank you so much Kayla Don and the team at George Brand, we are truely grateful!
Matt was very professional, honest and most of all hard working. He bent over backwards for me so I could get the best outcome for my property. I highly recommend Matt, you won't be disappointed.
We would like to thank Linda for all her work she has done to help sell mums house. She is a lovely & patient person, if it was not for her Graham and myself would not have known which way to go. If in the future we decide to sell we will call Linda to help us again.
We would recommend Mark to anyone wanting to sell or buy. He was a great help, a wealth of information.
From start to finish I would give Andre the highest praise possible, I can't recommend him highly enough. Get on board with Andre by George!
We purchased our unit about six months ago. We chose George Brand Real Estate Toukley to manage our property and find suitable tenants.
They took professional photos of our unit and constantly kept us informed as to the progress of finding a tenant.
We have had a good tenant for the past six months, but the tenant is now leaving, and George Brand moved quickly and efficiently to put the unit back on the market. They have been keeping us informed of inspection times and any interested prospective tenants. Their guidance and advice has been very professional and helpful.
We now have new tenants signed up. We are very grateful for the company's constant communication and feedback and we would highly recommend George Brand Real Estate to anyone looking to purchase, rent or sell property.
I own a rental property in Gorokan , this property is managed by Lisa Kirby.
I wish to express my gratitude and compliment you on your employee.Lisa who has managed my property in a very professional , firm and empathetic way to me and the tenant. There have been several issues that have required tact and diplomacy and the execution of the law and Lisa has certainly attained the correct result for all parties.
Her attention to detail is exemplary , I am always informed and she has certainly taken the stress out of owning an investment property, whilst not living in the area.
In fact the whole team deserve congratulations. Could you please convey to all the staff , in particular my appreciation and gratitude to Lisa.
We first met Kayla 6 years ago when she guided us through the purchase of our first home. Over the years, she kept in touch, taking a genuine interest in our growing family and the improvements we were making to our property. So when the time came to sell, there was no question who we wanted to handle the sale of our beloved first home. Kayla took the time to answer all of our questions and gave sound advice. She simplified the entire process and provided clear communication at every step. We could not have been happier with the result she achieved. Thank you Kayla for your hard work and professionalism, there really is no other agent like you. It’s been an absolute pleasure going on this journey with you again. You really can’t go wrong with Kayla Don!
Excellent Agent - 29 Oct 2017
It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Matthew. He was professional, genuine and easy to communicate with. He kept us in the loop with potential properties until we found exactly what we were looking for, in our ideal location. We couldn’t recommend him higher.
I would have no hesitation recommending Colin to friends and family as a very reliable, trustworthy agent. He always followed up with what he said he was going to do, and was always easily contactable. When there was a few issues with the sale, he was always upfront and honest about he thought we should do, but always positive too. He has a very good knowledge of the current market and other variables influencing a sale of a particular property.
I recommend him as a honest real estate agent.
Aside from handling all property access requirements with no fuss, was able to initiate early open inspections to maximise time on market within an existing tenancy arrangement - that resulted in a sale prior to our tenants vacating. The negotiation phase was straightforward and invited several purchasers to achieve a best value offer. Deposit, settlement and keys handover all managed with professional outcomes. Colin knows the Terrigal market and he will make the process feel easy. Great communicator. We recommend approaching Colin in the first instance if you have a property to sell.
All through the process Colin acted in a Professional , non pushy manner which made buying our home a positive experience. Nothing that we asked from Colin or the seller was any trouble, would definitely recommend Colin to any potential sellers or buyers.
Having undertaken a considerable number of property transactions during our lifetime we would be remiss in failing to acknowledge the outstanding service provide by Alex during our most recent experiences.
We were most fortunate to meet Alex when we were seeking an investment property in Terrigal and she dedicated herself to satisfying our fastidious request. So successful was her endeavour that we were eventually persuaded to move into this property ourselves and as a consequence decide to sell our lovely rural residence.
The sale of same was again conducted in a most professional and enthusiastic manner and to our delight realized its undoubted value after only a brief period on market.
Alex's performance in both instances was of the highest quality, revealing a real integrity and warmth of character. We are very grateful for the relationship that has ensued.

Kerrie was a pleasure to deal with throughout the purchasing process. She maintained transparency and was very helpful during the negotiations.
