The competent professional and friendly service I received from Di & Phil was beyond expectations. Di kept me in the picture all the time and when at one stage things quietened, reassured me that everything was still on track, and it was. A great result. Extra things Di helped me with after the sale was an added bonus and really appreciated. This is the second house I have sold through Di and purchased one. I couldn’t be happier with the results. I bought this house through her after she asked my husband and myself what were our particular needs. She found it and it was a perfect and happy holiday home for us but would have been just as good as a permanent home. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
I am only selling our lovely home due to the loss of my husband and finding I don’t get down there every weekend like we used to do.
I thoroughly appreciate their personal handling of the sale and recommend them highly to any future Vendors.
Many thanks for a most professional, efficient and friendly manner which led to the sale of our property. From the initial visit to our property with your office staff and inclusive of the photographer we found the whole process very relaxing without stress. You took the time to listen to us and adhere to our personal requests in respect of inspections.
I can recommend yourself and your agency without hesitation along with your fine staff, again many thanks.
Thanks for your assistance in the sale and Auction of Dads House.
At all times we were grateful for your honest and helpful approach in all aspects of selling the house.
All staff at Stockdale & Leggo always provided helpful and prompt responses to any question I had and at no time did I feel I was being pushed.
The sales board, online publicity and brochures were all fantastic.
Indeed on the day of the Auction Phil was fantastic both with getting the right price from bidders and dealing with (an anxious) me.
I would highly recommend Stockdale & Leggo Rye for any Real Estate matters as we found all staff friendly, prompt and helpful.
Thanks for being such a wonderful real estate agent. We had no doubt you would do a great job but you really did exceed our high expectations. Your attention and care made it a less stressful process for us. We hope to cross paths again in the future if we can ever afford another house!
DIANNE & DAVE
Thank you for such a satisfactory settlement of my property and for finding the right people that I am sure will love and enjoy and get much pleasure for many years as we did. I would recommend you always as the best Real Estate Agent in Australia! I especially appreciated the fact that you kept your word in everything that you promised me, very important attribute to a person! Many many thanks.
The Rye house has been such a smooth sale and a great outcome. Thanks largely to your competency, care and experience. Thanks also to Phil. I loved his little spiel at the beginning of the Auction. You two are such wonderfully authentic Real Estate agents. It’s been a real pleasure doing business with you both. A big congrats on an amazing result. We are thrilled.
To the wonderful team at Stockdale and Leggo, Rye
Recently we had the successful sale of our family holiday home in Burdoo Street, Rye. And it is with heartfelt thanks, that I write this letter to you.
From the very onset, when my brother initially came down to meet with various agents, to get our initial feel, we knew that Diane Key and her team were the ones which would deliver the best outcome for us. Then after my consultation with Diane, it was confirmed to me that this was to be the case.
I highly recommend Stockdale and Leggo Rye. Diane and her team showed genuine expertise of the property market, particularly in this area, and all the marketing needs required. I was kept up to date with all open homes and private visits to the property via phone and email - with detailed reports sent as well.
There was never any pressure from the team, and they were very transparent in their recommendations and advice, in relation to the decisions we needed to make.
From their lovely receptionist to Phil, our Auctioneer, it was very evident that everyone functioned as a well informed team.
To the whole team, I thank you very much for looking after us so well and for your professionalism.
We have recently sold our house in St Andrews Beach, through Stockdale & Leggo's agent Shaun Essing.
We were attracted to Shaun's professionalism and integrity. Throughout the sale process he was very easy to deal with and generous with his time, and we were extremely pleased with the sale price he negotiated, prior to auction.
While selling a home can be a stressful experience, Shaun made it less so, with his personable manner and clear, upfront style of communication. We would highly recommend him to any prospective vendors.
NATALIE & SAMUEL
Di & Phil have supported us in the purchase of our home, subsequent sale & purchase of our “Forever Home”. Their honest communication style coupled with follow through on everything promised made a difficult process tolerable. They laugh & cry with you along the way and always make you feel like you are their Number One customer. We achieved a fantastic result which we know was all down to the local knowledge & professional persistence of both Di & Phil. Not that we plan on buying or selling anytime soon but if we did it would only ever be with Di & Phil.
NIKKI & CRAIG
Just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to yourself and your team with the sale of Lorraine's property. On behalf of the family, I've appreciated the sensitive approach to the sale and being regularly informed every step of the way. With time management and distance to property, the successful outcome is a credit to the integrity of your agency. It's been a challenge but the successful outcome has been a relief to us and particularly Lorraine as she embarks on a new chapter of her life which has afforded her independent living in community housing close to her remaining family.
Thank you again
I would like to thank you and all the staff at Stockdale & Leggo, Rye for the professional way in which the sale of my uncle’s home was conducted.
Dealing with an elderly person when they are leaving their home of over 40 years is always emotional and of course with some hesitation.
I was so grateful and impressed with the care and patience you showed my uncle and he was not rushed at all. You were passionate about his home and had a real interest in selling his home without second thoughts. This gave him great piece of mind in handling the selling of his home to you.
Everything from start to finish was taken care of by you and your team and from our perspective it made life pretty easy as we had all been so involved with preparing the home for selling, so it was nice to just be able to be there for my uncle and support him throughout the process.
Again Phil I thank you for your efforts, we are delighted.
We would like to thank Di and Phil Key for their professionalism and support during our recent sale in what can be a very daunting and stressful experience. There were many who were surprised that whilst our house is in Blairgowrie we chose to appoint an agent outside of Blairgowrie being Stockdale and Leggo in Rye. Their honesty, integrity, knowledge of Blairgowrie and professionalism shone through all competitors, and proved to be the best decision.
Our emotional journey of selling our home was shared by the entire team at Rye Stockdale and Leggo who had our best interests at heart with the overall campaign not seen as just another vendor but more so we were all part of a team with the same goal.
Throughout the campaign we were continuously updated with information and advised on how the sale was progressing, with telephone calls well in advance of inspections and each inspection immediately followed up with feedback.
Di and Phil Key from Stockdale and Leggo Rye are unique in world of Real Estate; their relationship building skills will instill confidence with all prospective buyers. Any agent can organize a marketing campaign, but it is the personal communication and follow up one on one with people which is very important and this was a major factor in the success of the sale of our home.
Di Key's ability to easily communicate to prospective buyers to identify their needs and correlate their requirements with our property was truly outstanding, resulting in an overwhelming number of prospective buyers attending our auction. With an excellent attendance Phil Key's extensive auctioneer skills were prevalent with the ability to work with the crowd and maximise the sale price of our house well in excess of our expectations.
Thank you to all the team at Stockdale and Leggo for respecting our journey and delivering an excellent outcome for all concerned. John and I highly recommend discussing the sale of your property with Stockdale and Leggo Rye.
I was very impressed with this agent, in particular the two directors. I looked at three agents initially but decided to go with Di and Phil from Stockdale and Leggo because of their honesty with suggesting a realistic price. They are a pleasure to deal with in all facets of selling.
Di and the team maintained their enthusiasm at all times, in fact I think I made Di more determined than ever to sell it, and she did soon after at a good price.
Great communicators, honest and warm, I thoroughly recommend Di, Phil and their team at Stockdale and Leggo when selling a house. You can't go wrong with them.
We recently sold our house in Rye via Stockdale and Leggo and it with great pleaseure that we highly recommend Phil Key and Stockdale and Leggo Rye.
We found Phil and staff to be very professional, diligent and friendly people to work with. Phil s knowledge of the local market and marketing skills were a real positive that enabled our propetry to have a SOLD notice on it in record time, More importantly Phil achieved our price expectations within the required settlement period.
We extend our gratitude to Phil and whilst wishing then well for the suture.
DAVID & GRACE CHRISTISON
Diane, Phil and the team at Stockdale and Leggo Rye made our selling experience stress free. They kept us up to date at all times with open house times, reported back quickly with results of the open house inspections and dealt with offers and the eventual purchaser in a very professional way.
Their service was what I would expect from a professional and will certainly recommend them to future sellers and buyers.
LYNDA & JEFF
I would like to thank you for the most professional way you dealt with the sale of my property in Sorrento.
Your knowledgeable advise and regular updates made a daunting task seem easy!
I would be happy to recommend you and your office staff highly to anyone needing your services.
Again many thanks from all of us you dealt with.
Diane is very lovely and understood our particular needs. I highly recommend her to anyone wishing to sell property on the peninsula.
We thank you for looking after us at this stressful time. You were there for us when we needed some advice, even when buying a property which was in a different location. We have met someone here that is waiting to sell their house and wants to move to Dromana. I have given your Real Estate address to them so they can see you when they are ready to go ahead and buy a house.
We thank you once again for your help.
JOHN AND RIEKI
Real Estate Agents come and go but when you find one that has been in the game and works tirelessly for you, then you know you ve found the right person for the job.
I would certainly recommend Phil Key to my friends and family.
We would never hesitate to recommend Stockdale and Leggo Rye to anyone else interested in buying and selling property on the Peninsula. In our case they were prompt to our response in selling our land in Rye. Their advice and market appraisal was right on the mark.
We spoke directly to Phil Key who handeled the matter with extreme care, kept us informed and produced results within six weeks of its listing.
We were extremely thrilled with the result and of course their service. Overall, the whole experience was handled in a confident and extremely professional manner.
NICK & VICKI DEZAKOS
We had to sell our Fathers family home, it wasn t easy to do. This was due to an ongoing illness. Phil presented himself well and he kept us on track with what we needed to do. Never did we have to ring him up and say hey what s happening?
He did not pressure us. He guided us and always respected our decisions.
Thank you Phil and Staff.
SANRDA, DEBBIE, CHRISTINE & FAMILY
Diane and Phil Key at Stockdale and Leggo Rye made the selling of our house a pleasure. I? sure that the music the played and their personalities added a lot of charm to the presentation of our house at opens. We achieved a good price in good time, and most importantly, their communication was excellent.
We would thoroughly recommend Stockdale and Leggo Rye for both buying and selling your home.
GAY SANDERS & ROY STENNING
We are greatly indebted to Diane Key, Phil Key, Sean Essing and their wonderful team at Stockdale and Leggo Rye, for making our dream a reality.
Their customer service skills and caring and down to earth attitudes were evident from the outset. They are ethical, professional people, striving to do their all for their clients. Individually they are dynamic, knowledgeable professionals, together making a very strong team.
They live in the area, know all it has to offer and can manage your requirements with the confidence that this knowledge affords.
We highly recommend the team at Stockdale and Leggo Rye to look after you and your property requirements.
HELEN & REX PERKINS
As I always dealt with you over the phone and we never met with yourself or anyone from your Sales Team, I have to say I was very happy at how I was looked after and how easy you made the whole process of the sale of my block.
I am very grateful to you and your team.
Please pass on my regards to Phil and everyone involved in the sale of Fleur Ave.
I feel that you all did a great job, were respectful, and worked hard to sell the property for us.
Thanks for the great effort,
We did our reverse Sea change at the beginning of 2013, now living in our townhouse in Carlton North. You saw us just before we left and listed 3 Betty Street, Rye, as a property under your management.
Helen and I love our new life back in the action ?with a twinge now and then about leaving such an idyllic lifestyle by the sea.
We met the tenants on Friday and had a look through the house for the first time in two and a half years. Helen and I are extremely happy with Fiona and Scott. They have made a home there and the interior is as good as when we left! And Fiona is a keen gardener.
From day one Sandy McCormack has been excellent as property manager. She is experienced, down to earth, good with people, and really knows the rental industry. She promptly got us first rate tenants, doing the vetting herself, ?and persuaded us that Molly the dog was not a problem (shes gorgeous). We could not be more satisfied. The financial record keeping is good. All in all, Diane, Sandy is definitely a safe pair of hands and I am sure that you value her as an important part of your team.
I would have no hesitation in recommending that friends and acquaintances use Stockdale and Leggo, Rye, with regard to their real estate needs.
All the best to you and Phil with the business and life in general, regards
Dear Phil and Colleagues at Stockdale and Leggo Rye,
Thank you for your efficient, competent and courteous services in selling my house so promptly. In your initial evaluation I was impressed by your friendly and professional demeanour and your knowledge of the local area. Once on the market I was similarly impressed with the speed at which you advertised the property and conducted viewings.
It all proved successful.
So, my appreciation and gratitude for your very friendly and professional services.
We are pleased to recommend the services of Stockdale Leggo Rye.
The company recently managed the sale of our home in Rye and we found them to be very professional as well as being in touch constantly to report potential interest/offers on our property as well as guiding us with price expectations. They also had a very good feel for the market in the peninsula area and advised us accordingly.
The final result was an excellent sale price negotiated by the Agent and we would not hesitate to recommend Stockdale Leggo to manage your real estate requirements in Rye and surrounding areas.
A & D
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for all your hard work in the handling of the sale of the above property. Both Glenn and I found you and and your colleagues friendly, professional and trustworthy. At all times we had a strong sense that you were doing your best for us and the sale of the property and you made the possibly arduous task of selling the property a lot easier and more pleasant than may have been the case. I would also like to mention the excellent job Phil did at the auction with a less than enthusiastic crowd! In the end, the result was really positive.
Again, our thanks to all involved and we would have no hesitation at all in recommending the Rye branch of Stockdale and Leggo to anyone selling or buying a property in the area.
GEOFF & GLENN
Di, Shaun and of course Phil,
I just wanted to once again thank you all on behalf of my parents for the successful result with the sale of 15 Liesma Street.
As you can appreciate it was an emotional day for us all. Every item in the house has a story and a memory. We are glad that the house will be not only be looked after again, but that it will be a family home. May the new owners also have a wonderful time building loads of new memories and loving the lifestyle that Rye can bring.
Thank you all once again.
We approached Diane and Phil to sell our property as their reputation is next to none. From the moment we walked in the door they were professional and pleasant (no pressure to sign anything) and very open and trustworthy.
The entire process was transparent, no bulk buy marketing plans or out dated advertising methods, and the level of communication at every step in the process was exceptional.
By putting the property on the market at a realistic price we sold at our desired amount at the first open after a brief negotiation period.
Our family was so impressed with how professional and hardworking Stockdale and Leggo Rye were that they also listed with them to sell their beautiful home.
To potential sellers and/or buyers of property in Rye,
We would very much like to recommend the services of Stockdale and Leggo Rye to you from our firsthand experience when selling the family holiday home in Rye.
My brother and I knew instantaneously that they were the agents to represent our interests in selling the property. Diane Key was the first person we met and she understood the emotional attachment we had to the home, whilst also giving us sound professional advice in the approach Stockdale and Leggo would take in marketing the home to potential buyers. Her genuine, nononsense approach and persuasive manner, gave us an immediate trust in not only her abilities, but also that of her firm.
This was also evident in the staff at Stockdale and Leggo Rye. Shaun Essing was exceptional in his meticulous approach to the Open for Inspections, whilst being very approachable to all when showing the house to potential buyers. He proved able to continue the commitment the firm made to us by communicating either by phone or email after every Open for Inspection. This gave us feedback and knew the property was being looked after. This was very much appreciated.
Our final point of recommendation has to go to Phil Key, whom we were told about by Diane as being a fantastic auctioneer. She was absolutely correct and he certainly performed exceptionally well for us on the day of our auction. He has a wealth of experience and a manner that enables him to read the crowd. Coupled with Diane Key, you know your property is in safe hands. We were extremely happy with the results and believe everyone in the firm deserves a big thank you for their part in helping it to be achieved.
We thank you Di, Phil, Shaun and the rest of the staff at Stockdale and Leggo Rye.
Dear Diane and Phil,
We would like to express how much we appreciate the efforts you put into selling our home. We felt that the quality of service and the presentation of our property couldn? have been bettered by another real estate agent.
All that was promised from our first meeting happened on every level.
We would certainly not hesitate to recommend you to others we know wishing to sell in the area.
NORMA & DAVID BAXTER
Our Agent Nicole made what can be a very stressful time, easy. Nicole knew the house we purchased very well and was able to answer most, if not all questions. The whole process was quick and easy. We feel Nicole was somebody we could trust due to her knowledge and honesty.
Thanks Nicole you are very good at what you do.
Nicole is a extremely experienced Real Estate Agent. Nicole was always Professional & Curtious. Nicole was extremely knowledge in the realestate market. Nicole always listened to any concerns and explained her professional opion. Everything during the sale was very professional. Communication was often and I always felt I could contact her when necessary . I would always contact Nicole for any future properties I would have to sell. Regards,
From our first contact with Phil Key we found him to be helpful, courteous and displaying a sound knowledge of the local property market. He certainly had his finger on the pulse of recent sales and outcomes giving us a reasonable idea of what we could hope to achieve. We had not contemplated an auction but accepted Phil’s advice to sell by that method. This advice enabled us to achieve a price more than 30% above our reserve. Needless to say we were delighted with the outcome due in no small part to Phil Key’s professionalism.
Reserve - $490,000
Sale Price - $652,000
From the first meeting I knew S&L Rye were the Agents for me. I felt confident and comfortable to give them the responsibility of selling my every much loved family home and they exceeded my expectations. As a first time Vendor I did not know what to expect, but their kind, friendly and understanding manner allayed any fears I might have had. Phil was able to match my property to the ideal Purchaser and a deal was struck on the afternoon of the first open for inspection.
Not only did we secure more than the advertised price range, it was with a quick settlement and no conditions. It could not have been more successful in my opinion.
We have recently sold our property through Stockdale and Leggo Rye. We are extremely pleased with the result that Di Key achieved for us. She steered us with ease and professional skill throughout the process from beginning to end.
The sale of our property has been a very positive experience thanks to Di’s efficiency and expertise. Her personable nature and enthusiasm were added bonuses.
We would not hesitate to recommend Stockdale and Leggo Rye to prospective vendors.
Our thanks and appreciation,
MARGARET & DAVID
Kept us up to date every step of the way. Rang us after every open for inspection to discuss potential buyers. Very informative about the auction process. Would highly recommended Ben to sell your house and the whole agency.
MELINDA WILLIAMS - VENDOR
I would like to take the opportunity to thank Ben for providing us with such great service. From the moment we gave him the listing to the point of sale he has provided us with exceptional and professional service throughout, and made the process for my wife and I a pleasant experience.
I would highly recommend Ben Kenyon as an agent
ANNA & ANTHONY - VENDORS
Ben was very honest, approachable and very easy to get in contact with. We were more than happy with his very professional service.
JOHN PODUBINSKI - VENDOR
Starting from a negative view of real estate agents, my mind was soon changed...when we met Ben it became apparent not all agents are "full of it".
We would recommend Ben without hesitation to anyone. His communication skills are exceptional and he REALLY listened to us. He is passionate in what he does, and he does it without additional bull shit and with integrity and honesty. He is a rare gem.
MARAGRET JENKINSON - VENDOR
Ben, was an absolute pleasure to deal with. He sold our property off market with minimal fuss and saved us thousands on marketing. He has great knowledge of the market and real estate in general. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him!
SARAH - VENDOR
Ben managed the campaign from start to finish with a sense of calm control. His knowledge of the local market was strong and the campaign was well-pitched without unnecessary cost. Communication was excellent with regular contact for updates while being available for questions throughout. Achieved a great result with no stress from my end.
TIM - VENDOR
Ben was great! Helpful, approachable, kept us updated during the whole process and was proactive in liaising with our conveyancer to secure a sale. Would highly recommend Ben to anyone looking for an agent to sell their property.
SABRINA - VENDOR
Ben did a great job of marketing my property. I chose him because he came across as more genuine than other agents - not stereotypical. He was attentive, responsive and proactive. There was plenty of interest in the property and it sold on the day after negotiation. Its a shame we didnt have as many genuine bidders as we would've liked but the result was good given the way the market was. I would recommend Ben.
BEN RAWSON - VENDOR
To anyone looking for an agent to represent their property, I have no hesitation recommending Ben Kenyon.
Ben provided excellent service, is knowledgeable and his communications skills are first rate. Ben guided me through each step of the process and kept me informed along the way.
We ended up with an excellent result on auction day in large part to Ben's hard work and dedication to the job at hand.
I am happy to recommend Ben as a first-rate real estate agent and would be pleased to discuss any questions you may have about my particular situation.
ROSS ALLARDYCE - VENDOR
