Hi Chris & Naz, We would like to thank you for the exceptional service received during the sale process. The weekly reports provided were very thorough & the communication via email, phone & in person was exceptional. Throughout the campaign we were made to feel as though your office was only selling our property such was the time & effort dedicated to the sale. Your commitment to the sale, your knowledge of the market & your guidance throughout the campaign was far superior to any previous sale we’ve been a part of. Thanks again Peter & Lydia Kav

Hi Chris, Julie asked me to write a recommendation for you and I am very pleased to. Without the professional approach of real estate agent Chris Wilkins, it’s doubtful we would have managed to sell our property in Sydney’s declining house market. Chris sensed the change in mood among buyers at the beginning of this year and guided us to a gentle reappraisal of where the market was, not always an easy thing for a seller to hear. But Chris was absolutely correct in the circumstances and his reading of the market temperature was spot on. He drew near record numbers of potential buyers through the door for us and eventually we negotiated an excellent price that also allowed us to get on with the next stage of our lives. I’d recommend Chris to anyone looking for a thoroughly skilled agent to look after their interests. Thanks Chris, much appreciated. Michael Sheather
We first met Chris Wilkins 10 years ago when we were searching for an investment property in Drummoyne. Despite purchasing our unit from another agent I decided to use Ray White Drummoyne as my property managers because of the expertise and professionalism Chris showed in our property search. We would like to thank Ray White Drummoyne for the way in which have looked after us in the management of our rental property in Drummoyne over the last decade. Effy and Connie from the property management team are trustworthy, efficient, easily contactable and most importantly place the landlord’s interests first, an important part of property management. We have found you to be professional in every aspect of rental management and have no qualms in recommending you to any prospective investors. Jim and Barbara Iliopoulos

Thank you very much for all your help and hard work in selling the unit for me. I am very pleased with the sale price as I was well aware that there were areas in it which needed renovating. Thanks again Chris for all your assistance over these past four weeks, you have done an excellent job.
We first came across Chris Wilkins when he was selling an apartment we were interested in many years ago. Although we didn't end up buying the property, we had a good feeling about Chris and did not hesitate to contact him when we were looking to sell our apartment recently. He certainly did not disappoint. During what would normally be a fairly stressful time, we found dealing with Chris and Jessica Carbone to be highly professional yet felt as if we were being looked after like family. The frequent updates meant that we were across everything that was going on but more importantly, we were able to trust that Chris would give us the best advice based on his extensive knowledge and experience and ultimately get the best result for us. We would highly recommend him to any of our friends and family!

"I have worked with Ray White Drummoyne and in particular the Principal Chris Wilkins for many years. They have done a great job in managing our commercial property in Hunters Hill with professionalism, efficiency, genuine care and an alignment of interests. Beyond that Chris has become a valued and trusted adviser as we consider options for the property beyond its current use. This is the type of property management service that you seldom see and is worth so much more to property investors like me. I strongly recommend the team and thank them for their hard work."

Dear Andrew White, I can only imagine how often you're involved in managing complaints from people. But today, I'm not one of those people. Today I'm going to tell you how thrilled I am with the service and advice I've received from the team at Drummoyne. From the beginning: In September of 2009, my father - an 80 year old man with early signs of dementia - decided to put his house on the market. Chris Wilkins and the team did everything right. However, one week before the auction date, dad got cold feet and decided to withdraw his home from sale. While i can only imagine their disappointment at the time, they never expressed it to us. Chris was sympathetic and respectful and merely reminded us to call if we ever changed our minds. Twelve months on, we did just that. Above and beyond: During a campaign, I would expect the agent to turn up on time, liase with potential purchasers and keep vendors abreast of any developments. What i would never expect was the degree to which Chris and Alladin would exceed our expectations. Chris would routinely call the house prior to inspections to ensure dad remembered. They would turn up early to ensure they had time to have a chat with dad beforehand (dad would always ask the same questions and they would always answer like it was the first time). And when we couldn't be there to take care of dad for half an hour, they would turn up in pairs so that one could take dad for a walk while the other stayed behind. We had a great outcome on auction day - a great pay- off for all their hard work. The icing on the cake: My understanding of auctions was that, once the gavel came down, dialogue between the agent and vendor would be limited to settlement discussions through solicitors etc. I was wrong. Over the past week or so, Chris has been helping us find a suitable property for dad. The thing is, none of the properties we've looked at for dad are with the Ray White chain. Despite this, Chris has looked up properties on the internet, provided advice and even came with us to an inspection on Saturday. He has also agreed to come see another property with us tomorrow evening, juggling prior committments to do so. Chris has been just marvelous. We feel extremely fortunate to have chosen someone who is so genuine and supportive. I can't imagine this to be common in the Real Estate game, but it should certainly be recognised as best practice. I'm an advocate of the brand and will recommend Chris to anyone prepared to listen. How you can help me now: I work in the Human Resources division supporting leadership at Westpac and understand the importance of recognition. When done well, it can motivate the recipient and inspire others to achieve. What I'm asking you to do is take the time to recognise Chris. If you have a formal recognition program, please consider him. If not, please just give him a call to let him know that one of his clients valued him enough to write you this email. Let him know that we appreciate and value his - and his team's - advice, professionalism, understanding, sincerity and warmth. Thanks, Tina
Very transparent and working to our brief for the sale. Additionally very responsive to questions or feedback

Dear Chris , I visited just the other day my mum, and she was asking how the Drummoyne property was progressing. I explained that the auction was a most surprise outcome and the house sold for a good price, and not to worry as all was in good hands. She asked me to express her most grateful appreciation in the sale of our Drummoyne family home. To you and all the staff involved of Ray White Real Estate Drummoyne for such a tremendous effort; To be happy and in good health and enjoy the coming festive season. Have a very Merry Christmas and a happy prosperous New Year 2015.

I just wanted to say thank you to Ray White for all your help during the purchase of our new unit and sale of our old unit. Jess was instrumental in finding us both our new apartment and a buyer for our old apartment and went above and beyond the call of duty not only on both transactions but also helping with the logistics of furniture sales, home repairs and all sorts of other bits and bobs! Thanks to Jess, what can be a very stressful event was a smooth and quick process and we couldn't be happier with the results! Thanks again to Jess, yourself and the whole Ray White team! Sally

We got a great result, I'll recommend you and the team at Ray White Drummoyne wholeheartedly to my family and friends. Cheers Mick Garnett

Buying our family home from Ray White Drummoyne in 2007, we maintained a relationship and got in touch with Chris Wilkins when we intended to buy and sell again. Early in 2013 we spoke to Chris about our plans to buy another property & sell our family home. We received realistic advice from Chris on comparable property prices & the state of the market. The property we decided to purchase was not through RW Drummoyne however Chris gave advice, auction coaching and attended the auction day. We were successful on the day and purchased a great family home. Selling our home in a "buy-sell" scenario was stressful, but Chris and his team left no stone unturned. The results from marketing were exceptional, we received reports and extensive buyer feedback weekly and this subjective market feedback helped us set a realistic reserve and create a well informed plan for auction day. The result we achieved was better than expected, so we now have extra funds to spend on minor work at the new home. We have no hesitation recommending the RW Drummoyne team to buyers and sellers; they will work hard for you and give you the best chance of achieving a great outcome.

I am happy to recommend Chris & the Team at Ray White Drummoyne after the successful sale of my property in Drummoyne. They were professional, reliable and easy to deal with. They made the transition to my new home easy, considering the sale and purchase settled on the same day. Look forward to dealing with them in the future. Jonathan Chinwah

Thanks for all your help in selling our property. You and the rest of the rest of the Ray White team were both fun to work with and were very professional in your approach throughout the campaign. We enjoyed the process and learned a fair bit through it. You deserve the excellent reputation you have built up in the inner west. Jon and Amanda Marquard

We recently sold our house in Drummoyne. Our family had lived in the house for 20 years and we all agreed that we needed a change. However, leaving a house where our children were first born and raised and which was filled with so many fond memories proved to be a difficult emotional decision. We approached Chris Wilkins from Ray White on several occasions to provide market guidance and also advice on our sale and new purchase. The advice provided by Chris was realistic and helped us in our decision making processes. Chris, Aladdin and Jessica were always helpful, professional and honest in their dealings with us during the sale process and this made it easier for us during this time. We would be happy to recommend Chris and his team to anyone wanting to sell their house. Regards, Liz Di Qual

When it came to selling our family home at 114 Gipps Street Drummoyne, we knew straight away that there was no one better than Chris Wilkins from Ray White Drummoyne. He knows Real Estate, especially in the local area. Whether you are buying or selling a house, it is imperative that you feel comfortable and deal with someone who you can rely upon at all times. Chris was the agent who assisted us in purchasing the property years before.

We got the 'outlaws' house in Sydney away last weekend at the end of a very well-orchestrated marketing campaign run by the Principal of Ray White Drummoyne operation Chris Wilkins. Given market conditions and the site constraints (a significant sewer easement), it was a good result due in no small part to Chris' professionalism and enthusiasm. Thanks for the referral and you should not hesitate to refer anyone needing an agent in Sydney's inner west to Chris' team. They do a brilliant job and are a credit to
David Eades - 100 Thompson Street, Drummoyne
We would strongly recommend Chris Wilkins and the Ray White Drummoyne team to anyone looking to sell their property From day one, we felt privileged to have the team on our side, and their professionalism shone through. Whether it was the advice around the marketing, the presentation of our unit or the best approach to take to the market, we felt that the advice and service enabled us to achieve approximately 10% more for our unit than we would have otherwise achieved. What impressed us the most was that we felt that Chris and the team were as committed as we were to getting us the best price possible, and this was evident especially in the way they followed up prospective buyers, and the insights they gave us on the current market conditions and the likely course of events on auction day. Definitely an investment worth making going with the Ray White Drummoyne team.
