Testimonials

Dealing with Sharyn Manning has been an absolute pleasure. She went far and beyond, what other agents were doing or proposing to get the best possible price for our property, IE contacting local council and questioning, or researching the possibilities of sub dividing a 7 acre green wedge property, when other agents just gave us a basic, price of what our property was worth, with the understanding that it remained a 2 bedroom cottage on land and wouldn't attract much attention. Sharyn (and Max) never faltered in their thouhgts and opinions of what our property was really worth, and gave us the very best opportunity to sell our property, in very quick time, which gave us the opportunity to move on very quickly. I highly recommend the services that Sharyn and Max Manning provide as real estate agents.

Now that the sale of my mother's house in Plaza court has been completed I am sending you my heartfelt 

thanks and congratulations on a job well done.

The short time it took your company to sell the house and the price you obtained was nothing short of amazing and certainly

well above my expectations.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone contempleting selling their property.

Kind regards and thanks again.

I sold my property through Stockdale and Leggo Lilydale. I chose well. From the moment they entered my home I found them to be friendly, trustworthy, easy to talk to, polite and very caring towards me. I could not have wished for a better Estate Agent. Thank you Max and Jessica

Cannot Praise Highly Enough!

As a small builder, the need to sell within the shortest timeframe possible while still achieving the best price possible is extremely important to us. Sharyn's dedication in helping us achieve this has far exceeded all expectations! She worked tirelessly to get us a result that was far better than expected. Her professionalism is outstanding and communication between all parties is phenomenal, we actually felt as though Sharyn was working solely for us as she is so efficient at making contact every step of the way while also being contactable at all times to answer any questions. Sharyn has a genuine care for all her clientele and is highly proficient. She has gone above and beyond what you would expect from any other agent and we cannot praise her highly enough! Thank you so much Sharyn, we have been blown away by your extra helpfulness in all aspects of this sale!

We were absolutely delighted with the service we received from Stockdale and Leggo Lilydale. We needed to put our house on the market quickly and they responded swiftly, offering us a very good deal. We were highly impressed by their enthusiasm, hard work and efficiency in getting things done quickly and with the minimum of fuss. Presentation of our property was first-class with superb photography and a really slick web-site. Teamwork was excellent and everybody was so friendly and yet professional, inspiring confidence in us which was fully justified by results. We had 16 prospective purchasers to view our house on the first open-house day and a contract was signed with our purchasers on the same day. What could be better than that?


From Geoff and Kath Snelling, Chirnside Park.

To Max and Jessica,
Just a short note to thank you for the pleasant way you managed the sale of our home.
We are of course very pleased with the outcome, your company is to be highly recommended.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation regarding the purchase and tenanting of our property at 3 Cornelia Close, Kilsyth. Firstly, thanks to Jarred Muir on his honest and professional manner. Jarred’s interest in both vendor and buyer was very professional and his relaxed no pressure attitude was very refreshing. It made the purchase of the property that much easier. Secondly, many thanks to Dianne and Hayley who worked very hard to lease our investment property over the Christmas period with a number of opens/inspections. 

Regards Clint and Penny Martin


To Jarred Muir and the team at Stockdale and Leggo Lilydale We would like to express our gratitude and appreciation for all your help with the recent sale of the property which belonged to our late relative. Our family found itself in very difficult circumstances, having to sell the property of a deceased family member, but the consideration and understanding shown to us was an enormous assistance to our families. The professionalism and the care extended to us all along the way is something we all really appreciate, the comfort of knowing what great hands this task was in and the communication along the way was outstanding – we were kept updated every step of the way. It was such a relief to get accurate and honest advice and not just a sales pitch. We will certainly be using the services of Stockdale & Leggo Lilydale when next we need a real estate agent, and would not hesitate in recommending the services of Stockdale and Leggo Lilydale and especially Jarred Muir to anyone who needs the services of a real estate agent in the area.

Kind regards,

Clarke, Gebbing and Saxon families.

Sale of Property Allsops Rd Launching Place.

I am writing to express my deep appreciation of the professional way in which my property was prepared and sold by your agency and in particular Sharyn Manning.

The sale was difficult due to a marriage breakup and the problems associated with dealing with 2 owners who are not communicating, that is my ex wife and myself. There were problems removing my ex wife’s property and Sharyn gave of her time and energy to help resolve this issue by donating several days at no charge to help my ex wife, this is way above what would be expected. The sale could have fallen through if Sharyn hadn’t helped

I would have no problems and have already recommended Stockdale & Leggo of Lilydale to other potential sellers; they discussed many options and tailored a plan to maximize the house sale. The sale went through very quickly and smoothly and when there were several potential buyers they kept me informed as to the status of each offer advising me at every turn taking out the worry that can be associated with the difficult situation that happens when a marriage breaks down.

I have bought and sold several houses over the years and this is the first time I know that the Estate Agent was working in MY best interests, well-done Max, and especially Sharyn and the team at Lilydale.

David Williams 

Dear Sharyn,

Just a quick email to say many thanks for the quick, professional and
trouble free way that you managed the purchase of our new home.

From the initial openings it was all organised and managed in a very
personal and reassuring way.

The purchase of our new house was quick and for a very agreeable price.

Many thanks to all involved and we will be recommending your services
to friends, families and anyone who asks.

Best Regards

Malcolm and Wendy.

My husband and I signed up with Stockdale and Leggo Lilydale to purchase our new house (off the plan). After obtaining information on selling our existing house from three separate real estate companies we decided that Stockdale and Leggo Lilydale s strategy, professionalism and enthusiasm suited us best. They continually kept us informed and supported us through the whole process. Nothing was too much trouble. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to other purchasers or sellers.

I HAVE RENOVATED A FEW HOUSES AND WATCH THE PROPERTY MARKET WITH KEEN INTEREST. I HAVE TRIED A FEW DIFFERENT REAL ESTATE AGENTS ALONG THE WAY, BUT NONE OF THEM GAVE ME SATISFYING RESULTS. RECENTLY A FRIEND INSISTED I TRY SHARYN MANNING TO SELL MY FAMILY HOME AS IT WAS TIME TO MOVE. SOME AGENTS SAID I WOULD NOT GET THE ASKING PRICE I WANTED OR I WAS ASKING TOO MUCH FOR THE CURRENT MARKET . I CALLED SHARYN AND ITS BEEN HAPPY SAILING EVER SINCE. I GOT WHAT I WANTED AND I? HAPPY. SOME AGENTS WILL SAY ANYTHING AND FEED YOU THEIR FABULOUS MARKETING PITCH FOR YOU TO SIGN THE CONTRACT , AND IN THE END HAVE LITTLE OR NO RESULT. ALL I? ASKING WHEN SELLING A HOUSE IS HONEST OPINIONS AND RELIABLE ADVICE, NOT THE SALES PITCH ANSWERS TO STRING ME ALONG. I FIND SHARYN IS RELIABLE AND TRUE TO HER WORD AND THAT? ALL I WANT

To whom it may concern,

I would like to say a huge thanks to Max for selling our house in Lilydale. It has been truly a pleasure having Max involved in this process. When we 1st listed our house back in October with another real estate agent we had high hopes of having a quick and seamless sale process. However this was not the case. We had several open for inspections where we would not have any prospective buyers turn up. After 2 months of disappointment week after week my wife and I made the decision to change real estate agents. We signed up with Max at Stockdale and Leggo Lilydale. Max was very enthusiastic about selling our house. With Max? vast experience and enthusiasm he suggested a number of small changes for us to make to the house and gardens. As we are a family of 5 children Max was more than accommodating helping us get the house presented correctly. Max even purchased new lounges for us to ?dress up? our front living room.
After we made the minor changes to the house and gardens we were ready to hit the market again. Max had our house listed for 8 days only. During this time we had several private inspections. This was a huge surprise as we had listed our property right on Christmas and did not expect results.
On the 8th day of being listed on the Market our house was SOLD. Max exceeded our expectations with Sale Value, and even managed to secure our new house for us.
Max truly goes above and beyond your expectations. We cannot thank Max enough on all his help and hard work. The sale process was seamless and we were overly excited when Max put up our Sold sticker on our front board at 9pm at night.
I highly recommend Stockdale and Leggo Lilydale; these guys are true professionals and market leaders in Real Estate.

Regards

Max and Sharyn Manning have been more than great agents, they have been friends to us. We would recommend them to anyone seeking an honest and effective sales team.

Sharyn and Max were fantastic with the sale of our home. They were very friendly which made us feel at ease through the whole process. They have an extremely good understanding of the market and the area. Sharyn telephoned us after every inspection with feedback and kept us informed regarding any communication she had with prospective purchases along the way. Not only was their approach relaxed and friendly it was also extremely professional. I would highly recommend Sharyn as an agent if you are thinking of selling or buying.

Tonia & Phil Stiois

Excellent Agent, Highly Recommended
Sharyn is professional, polite, understanding and honest with all her advice and actions. She gave us an extremely accurate assessment of the current market place and what we could expect from the sell of our property. She discussed various options around the potential sell and did not pressure to make any unconsidered decisions. She provided excellent advise on market values, changes and differences in values across the areas that we were also looking to buy in. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sharyn and Stockdale & Leggo Lillydale to anyone wishing to sell or buy in the area, or even seeking advice outside of the agents allotted area. Sharyn is friendly, approachable and is prepared to listen before offering advice, she obviously cares about the customers needs and the service she provides, which in this modern day and age is very refreshing.

Highly recommended

Both Sharyn and Max made the sale of our house an effortless experience. They were prompt with all there communication(from our first phone call to our last). Very easy people to deal with, a great knowledge of the local market and got us a sale price beyond our expectations! Very highly recommended.

 Brad Graham

Max Manning and the team from Stockdale & Leggo Lilydale did a sensational job of selling our house for us. Their dedication and commitment to getting a great result was outstanding, and they worked tirelessly with us and with our buyers to ensure that everyone was happy at the end of the day. Throughout the process we were kept fully informed of any new developments, and Max treated us more like friends than clients, always answering the phone cheerfully at any time of day or night. If we ever have to sell another house, we will definitely be getting Max back as our agent. 

David Flower

Thanks to Max,Sharyn & the team at Lilydale.

Thanks for a great outcome with the sale of our property
it was achieved within 1 open weekend with a minimum of fuss
Highly recommended

Jim Provan

Our house had been on the market for over six months with very little interest shown. We were both becoming despondent and were unsure as to what to do. We decided to change agents and chose Sharyn because she had such a positive approach to selling our property. 

After spending time with us, Sharyn adopted a different approach, organising another photo shoot to emphasise the natural beauty of our home. Within two weeks our property was sold.
We would like to thank Sharyn and Max Manning for the thoughtful and professional manner in which they handled the sale process.

If you would like to avail yourself of a truly professional Real Estate Agent - I thoroughly recommend Sharyn & Max Manning and the team at

Stockdale & Leggo Lilydale. I have tried other companies and been disappointed.

Sharyn & Max and their team are honest, reliable, helpful and truly professional in all that they do. I have no hesitation in recommending them

Phil Crossman

I highly recommend! I am very grateful for Di, Max and Sharyn for their professionalism, kindness and making something that was so daunting to me a pleasure. I owe Di massive thanks for going beyond what you'd think an agent would do, you amaze me! I can never thank you enough Di for taking our sale on, selling our home so quickly, explaining everything simply, taking the stress of selling away from me. Such a sweet, smart, savvy woman who does beyond her absolute best! Thanks heaps gorgeous from all of us :D

Dear Max and the team at Stockdale & Leggo Lilydale.

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all your help / support / hard work in selling our property at 24 Winnetka Drive Lilydale.
Being that the property was a deceased estate there was a big emotional aspect to this sale and the process of preparing it for sale. Your guidance, assistance and understanding has been so much appreciated. Your lack of judgment on how our Uncle lived was also greatly appreciated. He was a lovely man and I think our biggest fear was finally showing someone the property and having had them judge him or comment on his life. It was such a relief meeting you and finding that you only wanted to help!!
You also went above and beyond our expectations of a real estate agent in your assistance in putting us in contact with other services / people that we needed help with to sell the cars and advice on other issues.
Finally, your work as an actual real estate agent was also excellent - no surprises there as there is a reason people stay in business! Our house was sold quicker than we expected and for a much better price than we expected.
We will be recommending you to all or friends and family in this area without a doubt.
Kind Regards,
Tara Murnane
