In looking to downsize from our Epping home of almost 15 years, we were challenged by the need to identify an agent evidencing the required integrity and enthusiasm to take up the task of selling our home. For our research of a number of agents in the area, we selected Ray White Epping which proved a rewarding choice. Catherine & Dennis proved enthusiastic, professional and supportive throughout the sales campaign, communicating particularly well at all stages.

Having made a difficult decision to sell our family home of 37 years we then looked to choosing an agent. After a few interviews with agents and some research we chose to go with you and your team. We were not disappointed with our decision and the result you achieved for us was excellent. We were impressed with your professionalism, your expertise, your attention to detail, and your politeness and care to us at all times. We wish to thank the whole team too, for their politeness and professional approach. Listening and witnessing our auction and how hard you worked was amazing especially with the the result you achieved. We would have no hesitation in recommending you and your team to anyone wanting to sell their home.
Roslyn and Cliff Dearden - 84 Cliff Road, Epping
Just a short note to thank you for one of the best displays of service and professionalism I have witnessed in any industry, let alone the real estate industry. Your immediate understanding of mum and dads needs showed unbelievable perception, and your whole campaign was flawless in every aspect. I could not recommend you more highly to anyone. Thank you from all of our family.

I recently sold my home at Auction under the hammer with Ray White Epping, Catherine Li & Dennis Nutt supported by their whole Sales Team for an impressive $2,008,000. Well above my expectations! In selecting my Agents, they had to meet, in my view reasonably strong selection criteria, as my home was being sold then dealt with under instructions from the Family Law Court. I attended quite a number of Auctions by various agents before I finally selected Catherine Li of Ray White Epping because I appreciated her personal manner and professionalism and the regular strong prices that she achieved. The one Auction that swayed my thinking was conducted by Ray White Epping at 11 Dallwood Avenue Epping which sold for a local area record of $1,807,000. I purposefully attended the actual Auction which had such strong competition from so many different buyers. At the auction I thought that Dennis Nutt, as Auctioneer was outstanding and very commanding with a touch of humour adding to a very professional presentation. Again this satisfied another very important point for me to be ticked off. My father and I met with Catherine and she explained the marketing process and the reporting that follows every inspection. The reports were very thorough and detailed. As it turned out this became a major influence in me appointing the Agent and also a major factor with regard to the Auction of my home. Right up until the day of Auction my case was before the Court. One major influence in allowing me to proceed to Auction was the Marketing Reports prepared by Ray White Epping were tabled and scrutinized in Court. In short, the reports stood up to cross examination with the Judge awarding me permission to proceed to Auction. The RESULT then clearly speaks for itself. I am a very happy Seller and also very happy with my preferred Agents!

The decision to sell our family home was not an easy one. From the moment you came on board we knew that we had made the right choice. Your professionalism, enthusiasm, knowledge of the market and attention to detail was very refreshing. Throughout the campaign we were kept informed and any concerns were promptly dealt with. We thank you both for your sincerity and for making the selling of our home such a stress-free and pleasant experience. Dennis and Catherine, you are truly at the top of your game.
Judy and Jhut Ho - 11 Dallwood Avenue, Epping
My husband and I have a property managed by Ray White Epping and we feel very comfortable and happy with their service so we changed 9/330 Pennant Hills Road, Carlingford to them to manage from another agency in Parramatta. The next phase we decided that we would like to sell the unit. The property price range in the street was around $450,000 at the time and Catherine thought that we would achieve a higher price if we removed the tenant, re-painted and re-carpeted the unit. We took her advice and vacated the property and commenced basic refurbishment. During this process another unit sold at $480,000 and we asked Catherine whether we could achieve $500,000. She was very confident that once refurbished and also styled with furniture that we would get far more than $500,000, even close to $550,000. We didn’t think we could and we would be happy at $500,000. We agreed on the method of sale - Auction, at her suggestion. After the first open house, Catherine commenced negotiating with a particularly keen buyer and we don’t know what she did or how but the eventual highest offer which we accepted was $570,000 after the property had been on the market only one week , before its second weeks open home. Little money we paid and big return we got! Thanks to Catherine from Ray White Epping’s recommendation. We have the highest regard for Catherine and Dennis and the extra duty of care that they have provided us. We listened to their advice and the results quickly followed. They are the best!!! We highly recommend their services!
Mei Hung Li - 9/330 Pennant Hills Road, Carlingford
We are so happy with your professional service and that you achieved a very good price for us before auction in the current market. It met with our needs to move to Queensland on schedule. Thank you very much."
Mr. & Mrs. McNeilly - 3 HAYWOOD STREET, EPPING
What a fantastic auction! Catherine & Dennis work so well together. Their experience & team work is a real point of difference!

Mr. & Mrs. Martin - PENNANT AVENUE, DENISTONE
On behalf of Benetton Design & Construction, I would like to congratulate Catherine Li and Dennis Nutt of Ray White Epping on providing a superb service. During a difficult market period Ray White Epping were able to make available numerous contract prospects where other agent organisations failed to do so. Ray White Epping's ability to constantly ensure a high standard of professionalism was very much present in all areas of their work. Their aptitude exceeded our general expectations through providing exceptional results. I can confidently assure Ray White Epping is the ideal candidate for any future works.
Victor Khoury - 1A BUSACO ROAD, MARSFIELD
We could not be where we are now without you. Your extra efforts & enthusiasm is greatly appreciated. We are "over the moon" & still are surprised at how much you have sold our townhouse for. Your negotiation skills are fantastic! We are glad we have chosen you & Ray White Epping.
Greg & Stephanie Walley - TARANTO ROAD, MARSFIELD
We cannot find the words to adequately express our thank to you both for the manner in which you took us to our first open house last Saturday. To think that by Sunday, we had a firm buyer and for the price achieved was beyond our wildest dreams. Our grateful and sincere thanks to you both. You have a wonderful rapport & made us feel comfortable at all times. We hope to always keep in touch with you over whatever years are ahead of us.
Fay & John Salmon - 28 NIRIMBA AVENUE, NORTH EPPING
We selected Ray White Epping as our real estate agents from a prospective list of five contenders, As a result of Dennis & Catherine's presentation our selection process was made simple. Whilst all agents were similar in costs and anticipated selling price expectations, we chose Ray White Epping because we felt immediately comfortable with Dennis & Catherine on a personal level. They both had contrasting personality traits which we believed would assist the sale process. This was subsequently proven correct. Dennis acting as an auctioneer was an added bonus as he had personal knowledge of the property & prospective buyers. In addition to this, we felt that dealing directly with the Principals gave us an immediate feeling of security and competitive advantage. These were the reasons we chose Dennis & Catherine to act on our behalf. Throughout the campaign our expectations we totally satisfied with detailed feedback via ace to face meetings following the open home inspections. Catherine worked tirelessly to qualify & follow up with prospective buyers. We feel that her hard work ensured no potential buyers were lost. The entire process was seamless from inception to the auction day.
Kevin & Diane Keegan - 7 BIARA CLOSE, MARSFIELD
What impressed us most was the confidence we had in knowing that you were working for us (the vendor) & we were completely assured from day one that you had the ability to negotiate the best possible price & to actually close the deal. As it turned out, you exceeded all of our expectations, selling the property after only a week & a half on the market at a price that was significantly above any other offer we had previously had with another agent for 3 months…"
Merylee & Michelle Crockett - 16 KARRIL AVENUE, BEECROFT
Anthony and I would like to formally thank you for all your efforts in achieving a fantastic auction result for us on Saturday. We appreciate your complete professionalism and attentiveness in marketing our property as well as your clear communication and constant availability for follow up. Dennis, we acknowledge that your auctioneering skills greatly contributed to exceeding our high reserve. Catherine, your ability to hold the interest of potential buyers throughout the marketing campaign highlighted your insight and served us well by ensuring a high number of registered bidders on the day. It has been a pleasure to have you both as our selling agents.
THE LECHNERS - 24 VALLEY VIEW CR, NORTH EPPING
Thankyou for your professional and excellent service for selling our property at 78 Wyralla Avenue, Epping. We were very impressed by your team work, spirit and hard work. With more than eighty groups inspecting our home in the first week, and sixty groups in the second week, you gave us feedback for each one of them! We were also very surprised to see that you could quickly identify the real potential buyers who showed real interest in our home within their prices ranges! We never expected our property could be sold within just two weeks time with a happy deal and satisfied result for both the buyer and the owner! Well done! Catherine and Dennis, I would not hesitate to recommend your agency to our friends who want to buy or sell a property!
JOJO HUANG - 78 WYRALLA AVENUE, EPPING
Dear Catherine and Dennis, Thankyou for acting on our behalf in the recent sale of our home. From our first meeting until the most successful sale, we found your work to be characterized by professionalism, commitment and an expertise based on a sound knowledge of the local market. Your marketing strategy was extremely effective and your communication and market feedback to us was honest, regular and accurate. At all times during the market process we felt that you kept us in the picture and that our regular meetings and contacts kept us well informed. You guided us through the process and as a result we felt very comfortable in working with you. Finally, we would have no hesitation in recommending you to other vendors and we wish you every success in the future.
TERRY & KRIS CLARKE - 13/28-34 KENT STREET, EPPING
It is quite easy to write a testimonial for a real estate agent when they get a great price for you. Not only did Catherine and Dennis get the best price the market had to offer but we have found them to be consummate professionals in every sense of the word from day one. They have made the experience of leaving a home of 45 years as painless as it can be and in the future I hope they don't mind a couple of friends dropping in on them occasionally for a cup of coffee. I have no hesitation in recommending the Catherine and Dennis team and Ray White Epping for all real estate needs.
