Jayne demonstrated her wealth of experience and excellent communication skills throughout this process. She was always contactable and extremely flexible when it came to potential buyers.
As the sale involved a deceased estate there was some added complexity. However, Jayne’s regular contact and guidance made the process a seamless one and through sheer hard work and negotiation she secured an outcome that we were very happy with.
I would definitely work with Jayne again and recommend her highly.
Thanks again Jayne

Goes the extra mile! I really did well choosing Jayne to sell the house. She provided excellent advice all the way through the process, assisted us in coordinating improvements prior to entering the market, kept us very well informed, chased every opportunity and got a great price. On top of all that she was a pleasure to deal with. I have no hesitation in recommending her.

My sincere gratitude for acting as my selling agent . Your energy and enthusiasm towards the task at hand never wavered and at all your times your dealings were polite and courteous. You consistently kept me informed during the sale process, providing me with insightful advice when required. I was also appreciative of the fact that you made yourself available after hours when necessary. I particularly wish to make mention of your advice and meticulous planning in preparing the property for sale. Your careful attention to detail (no doubt due to your vast experience) and organisational skills made preparing the property for sale so much easier. I regard your level of service as outstanding and would not hesitate recommending your services to my conveyancing clients’.

Recently Milton Drever sold our property of 20 McRae Place North Turramurra. The process went smoothly and the house sold within two weeks of being on the open market,mainly due to Milton's diligence,and hard work. We were very happy with all dealings, Milton gave us useful and appropriate advice all the way through the process and kept us informed of developments as they came up.He was always enthusiastic and pleasant to deal with ,we greatly appreciated being able to ring and ask if unsure of anything and he always replies promptly and makes sure he is available which we found really reassuring and helpful.
Just wanted to let you know of our recent positive experience.

We found the service provided by R&W to be very professional. Brooklyn Zhu in particular attended to all aspects of our sales program promptly and energetically. We were very pleased with the price which was above our expectation, and the fact that terms were agreed only eight days after listing.

I had the unenviable task of selling my late fathers property on North Shore. Not being a local resident of the area, I was not familiar with any local real estate agents. The property was located in a very desirable area and as expected I was approached by many Realtors wanting to sell my fathers property. Some were very rude and tried to be intimidating and demanding. Totally disregarding my request for privacy etc. I was so appreciative when my solicitor suggested Jayne DeMaio she was everything the other realtors were not. she explained the process completely and thoroughly and was respectful of my time and my requests to allow me to take time to make decisions. Jayne was always available to discuss issues and made sure I was always aware of the progress on the property. From start to completion of sale Jayne made sure the process went smoothly, the final outcome being an outstanding property sale result. i can without hesitation say that anyone could with great confidence recommend Jayne DeMaio to any clients, friends or family for their Real Estate needs.
Denise Wilson - 34 Murdoch Street Turramurra
Thank you Brooklyn. Well within twelve days you sold our home for a street record price and at the same time found another place for us, which we have now purchased. In sport this would rate you as “a two fisted fighter”, one who can punch hard with both hands. And that is what you did for us. We also appreciated your regular communication. When we were in business we always endeavoured to keep the clients abreast of what was happening. Therefore, your attention to this sometimes forgotten or neglected good business practice was always so well received by us. At a time, when selling and buying can be so stressful, you made the whole process that much easier to endure. Keep up the good work for your other clients, we are sure they will appreciate you also.
Steve McGregor - 46 Alvona Avenue, St Ives
Debbie and I wanted to put in writing our thanks for your recent help in completing the off-market sale of our property at 75 Kulgoa Road Pymble
The whole process was completed with a minimum of fuss and stress. You were able to find us a buyer at a good price without the usual issues of inspections, auction process or major property repairs. As you know this whole process can become extremely stressful, but your property knowledge and attention to detail was first class. We would definitely recommend your service to anyone thinking of selling or buying.

We just to thank Jayne for handling the sale of Bart's home in St Ives recently. We were impressed by Jayne's dedication, honesty and professionalism and the effort she put into her sales campaign to give Bart a quick sale which he was very pleased with. With her flair and expertise she prepared the house for sale and took so many worries off our shoulders with her continued support and regular contact. She was constantly in touch with us at all times, and worked extremely hard in keeping the purchaser interested whilst we made a decision with the offered price. Jayne was also able to improve the appearance of the house engaging the services of a few tradesman and we were very happy to have a quick sale within a week of the home being listed on the market. We would recommend Jayne to all vendors wanting to market their property. She is totally committed to her work and we feel a leader in her field. Once again thank you Jayne.

We selected Milton to take on the sale of our property, firstly based on excellent recommendations from a couple of our friends but secondly, because he impressed us when we met with him initially with his understanding of the local market and clear, open and direct approach to selling our home. He met our expectations in every respect, always being mindful of our needs and requirements and making this a priority in any discussions with potential purchasers. Milton made the sale of our family home which we had lived in for many years, smooth, stress free and as easy a process as is possible in such a situation. My husband and I interviewed 4 real estate agents and Milton was our unqualified choice. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to other vendors.

Just wanted to thank you again for all the active, personal and steadily energetic care you gave to selling the house. I’m perfectly sure one would not have got such an amazing result if you hadn’t talked so well to buyers, called them back and got to know them and what they needed. It led I think to the strong underbidding situation which pushed up the price. Your enthusiasm and liking for the place, and warmth of manner helped very much, too.
Thanks again, it was a pleasure working with you.
Very best regards,
Great outcome. Thank you so much for your excellent, highly professional and always very sensitive and friendly management of our sale.
Morag & Sandy Holloway - 54 Moree Street, Gordon
Jay and I would like to thank you for your invaluable assistance in the recent sale of our home. Your knowledge and understanding of your client base made the whole process so much easier. You were at all times considerate and appreciative of the pressures of the process, and with patience you helped us understand what was required of us. With your help and contribution we were able to achieve a great result for the sale of our most precious asset, our home. We are happy to recommend your work to anyone else engaged in selling/buying a home.

We recently sold our home in St Ives with Brooklyn Zhu. I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the fabulous service provided by Brooklyn. True to his word, we attained a record price for our street. Brooklyn explained the campaign process very clearly and always kept us informed throughout the campaign.

Jayne DeMaio is most definitely a vendor orientated agent. She is a mix of persistent, focused and Jayne never lost her enthusiasm throughout this campaign - even when the road to selling this house was tough she was relentless.
Her proactive approach in getting a new photo on your marketing material made a big difference to the number of people who viewed it. I grew to trust her advice and am grateful to have had her involvement.
Mel Willkinson - 1 Trevalgan Place, St Ives
The sale of our home went very smoothly and we know this was due in no small part to the expertise David brought to the process. We do not hesitate to very highly recommend David to any prospective vendor.
We interviewed several agents and finally selected David Beveridge of Richardson & Wrench St. Ives office for the following reasons;
Honesty - David was clear and concise in his appraisal of our property, factual and down to earth with his comments on what needed to be done.
Accuracy - David did not under or over estimate the value of our property based on the market at the time of sale, which we found very refreshing.
In Touch - David, whilst relatively young, has extensive market exposure and an impressive list of clients and buyers. He is in touch with all facets of the market and also has connections with overseas buyers.

“Selling our house while residing outside of Australia seemed like a daunting task at first. Jayne, however, facilitated the sale in such a professional and efficient manner that our concerns quickly vanished.
Jayne has a keen understanding of property market dynamics and assisted us greatly with on-the-ground market information, trends and marketing strategy. To us these were of the most important aspects of getting a decent sale - particularly important to as we were not on-the-ground. Jayne’s working network was also greatly to our advantage – from house cleaning / fixing / presentation to tree removal and legal services – we found third-party vendors to be professional and efficient.
Communication was transparent, prompt and to the point – we were consistently comfortable that Jayne had our best interests at heart.
We will not hesitate to make use of Jayne’s services again.”
Pieter Knox - 29 Princes Street, Turramurra
I am myself an Estate Agent, and most recently a Vendor (of a residence). I found Daniel Cook’s (of Richardson & Wrench, St. Ives) conduct exemplary, both personally, and professionally.

I first met Jayne DeMaio when she was acting for a sale in Killara. I had already decided on another agency for the sale of my property in Killara, however, upon meeting Jayne in person, was so impressed that I cancelled prior arrangements in order to enlist Jayne’s services.
I found Jayne to be very professional, honest and highly motivated leading up to, during, and after the very successful sale of my property.
I have since enlisted Jayne to handle a second property where the same professionalism, determination and integrity were shown. Her regular communication and reports during the campaign kept me informed at all times. On the second sale Jayne was also able to achieve a great result.
During both of these sales, Jayne not only fulfilled her duties with skill and diligence, but she also went very much above and beyond what might be normally expected of and agent, dedicating a significant effort to making campaigns as successful as they could possibly be.
Jayne’s phenomenal work ethic, her friendly approachable nature, and her extremely positive attitude made her a pleasure to associate with. I would not hesitate to recommend Jayne or enlist her services in the future when the need arises regarding any future property buying or selling.

On behalf of Saul and Vanessa, I would like to thank you very much for the effort you put into selling their home.
You far exceeded your call of duty in helping make the property ready for sale. Your constant feedback on events (even on your day off) were a source of reassurance to all. Saul and Vanessa in the UK appreciated your personal communication with them. Not only did you have to deal with the mother-in-law, but the whole family.
Your negotiating skills were excellent – not accepting the first offer – and going for the top price within the time frame you promised.
We would not hesitate to recommend or use your services in the future.

I met Jayne DeMaio at an open inspection and immediately found her to be a truthful real estate agent, not easy to find. I decided to list the sale of my house with her and I was not disappointed.
Even though the market was extremely difficult, Jayne persisted with our sale and got us the best price in a sliding market. Our sale took several months and I was always completely informed of the progress, particularly after each open inspection. Jayne was always available and I believe gave us hones advice. I wish Jayne well with all her future sales and can highly recommend her. I would be happy, at any time to supply a verbal reference.

Thank you for all your help and advice in selling my home. I had discussed the sale with two other local agents prior to your cold calling at my house one Saturday morning when you were advising local residents of you successful sale up the road. Unlike the other agents, I found you approachable, understanding, clear in explaining matters, honest, but most importantly you were reliable and always called me when you said you would.
Your assistance in preparing and presenting the house for sale at its best was most welcome and your involvement in that was above the call of duty.
I am glad I chose you as my agent. I believe you achieved the right price for my houses and am pleased to commend you services to others.
Yours sincerely, David Goodman

We would like to take this opportunity to commend you on your professionalism regarding our current development projects in St Ives. We are so impressed by your support and service that we feel compelled that our praise should go on record.

You are the master with contract negotiations, proven many times with deals that made us and purchasers alike, happy each and every time. It is really obvious that you know the St Ives area like the back of your hand.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to you for the manner in which you conducted the sale of our home. Your professional approach and commitment to keeping us informed of progress was much appreciated. The outcome of the sale was most pleasing - as was the short sales cycle. We were delighted that a young couple purchased our home and are sure that they will enjoy this family home as much as we did.
Bill & Robyn Sheppherd - 38 Miowera Road, North Turramurra
I am writing to express my complete satisfaction with David Beveridge of R&W St Ives as our real estate agent. We asked David to act for us in the sale of our property after a previously long and expensive attempt resulted in no offers and left us totally exasperated with the poor service that we received from the agent. David's approach from the start was very refreshing. Having very good local knowledge, he was able to price the property accurately and also offer us a very reasonably priced and focused marketing campaign. He worked conscientiously to ensure that the photographs and copywriting were the best, and to our liking. The property was brought to market effortlessly and to our exact timeframe. Throughout the entire process David was professional, diligent, creative and motivated. Immediately after each open home we were informed of who attended, their feedback and whether the campaign had to be adjusted in any way. David followed up with the viewers during the week and provided me with any additional comments and recommendations.
I would highly recommend David to anyone wishing to sell a property in the St Ives area.

In spite of the terrible weather last Friday we eventually completed a safe move to our new home.
We wish to place on the record our sincere thanks for the successful and speedy sale of 5 Walker Avenue, St Ives, Which in ur view was achieved largely through the excellent work done by you as our agent.
Not only was your whole approach to the marketing very professional, but your ongoing help and encouragement throughout the long period while we debated the merits of selling or staying was a great support to us.
We would have no hesitation in recommending you to any potential home sellers in the area.
With kind regards,

Throughout our short campaign you have been professional, genuine and pro-active and an absolute pleasure to deal with. You always made us feel like you had our best interest at heart and we wouldn’t consider using anyone else – no wonder you are known as the best in the business! Thanks again for everything!

Thank you for your sympathy card, it is much appreciated. Yes our mother was slowly fading away over recent weeks, but when the end arrived it still came as a shock. To realise she is no longer with us is the issue most affecting us. It is comforting to know, however, that she is finally at peace.
I will take the opportunity to thank you for all your hard work in the sale of our mum’s property. I know it’s your business and the sale brings income to you and your firm, but this was never the impression one gained from all your endeavours. You conducted yourself in a sympathetic, caring manner, much appreciated by all in the family. Thank you for that!

Daniel Cook sold our Pymble house in February 2015. We were very happy with the whole experience as Daniel gave good advice and direction in all aspects of the sale. He was always quick to make himself available if we needed to talk and check information. The sales campaign ran smoothly in all elements - photography, online marketing, brochure production, inter-agency communication. We made a schedule and were able to keep within the planned dates. Daniel dealt with interested parties in a professional and positive manor. He kept us up to date with progress in all negotiations. We were very grateful for the effort he put into the successful sale of our home and recommend him highly for his work in this area.

Early in 2014 we undertook to sell the family home of my late aunt in Benaroon Avenue, St.Ives. Doing so from Brisbane we engaged David Beveridge from Richardson and Wrench because he was quick off the mark when we made our initial enquiries, and my wife, also a realtor, knew it was clear by David's manner that he was the agent to go with. The home was sold by auction for a great price but there were complications - my aunt died the day before the auction, and it took another five months before probate was granted, and the house was sold. There were plenty of headaches but the buyer wanted the home and everything was OK in the end, mainly thanks to expert handling of the process by David. We also sold another property from the estate in Westleigh later in the year and had no hesitation in engaging David to undertake this, When you do things from a distance you need some luck and there was no doubt we had a ton of luck finding David. We couldn't have wished for a more professional agent to handle these affairs and I endorse his expertise and professionalism without hesitation. A big thank you David for all you did.

Dear Jayne, I wish to thank you most sincerely for your work in bringing off this most successful sale. From the outset, it was clear that we had made the right choice, based on the experience of other successful sales by you. Your firm management of over 250 groups who inspected the property prior to auction was handled most respectfully and contributed greatly to the end result, as did your inspired make-over of the property and pre-sale photography and attention to detail. Our client is most grateful. David W Alexander DW Alexander & Co Solicitors

After several months deliberation I decided to put my house on the market, and my neighbours recommended using Daniel Cook at Richardson and Wrench. I was very happy with the whole experience, Daniel is friendly and professional, and made the process as simple and seamless as he could from start to finish. I wouldn't hesitate recommending Daniel and the team at Richardson and Wrench St Ives to anyone buying or selling moving in that area.
Joy Minter - 5 Ottway Close, St Ives
Having decided to put our house on the market, the next task was to find a suitable agent. I put in a call to R&W and that evening an extremely professional package of information was hand delivered to our door by David himself. I was immediately impressed by the quick response to our enquiry. David arranged a meeting, and it was soon apparent he understood our requirements and immediately filled you with a sense of honesty and dependability. He listened to our needs and always went the extra mile to alleviate any concerns or questions we had. Our marketing material was professional and poles apart from other agents marketing. David sold our house in 6 weeks and the process from beginning to end was smooth sailing. He is an asset to the R&W St Ives team.

I would like to take this opportunity to commend you for the excellent service you provided with your initial advice regarding salability and valuation and subsequently in the preparation of the house for sale.

The professionalism of your agency is exemplary! Especially Milton's.
Dallas & Louise Wilkinson - 17A Roland Avenue, Wahroonga
From the moment we first met David at an open house, he impressed us with his professionalism and we decided from there and then that we should use him to sell our home. Although it was some months between the time we first met him and our home going on the market, David kept in regular contact through visits and phone calls and provided valuable advice on marketing, presentation, and and the like. David performed above our expectations by going that extra yard in securing an excellent result for our home. We do not hesitate in recommending David to any prospective seller in the knowledge that he will do everything possible to achieve the best possible result vendors.
Luis & Rita Garcia - 7 Linigen Place, St Ives
David's advice to us regarding the method of sale was very specific and, despite our own initial reservations, proved to be the correct choice. During the sale process, he was obviously extremely active in following up with potential buyers and in keeping them aware of the extent of current offers. Also, he kept my wife and I fully informed at all times so we never ever felt that we were left in the dark regarding the status of the sale process; this was most important to us as it eased any stress that we may have had. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending David to anyone considering selling a property on the Upper North Shore.
Andrew & Sandra House - 7 Roma Road, St Ives
The selling of the family home can be a stressful experience but David guided us through the whole process with the utmost professionalism and attention to detail. From our initial contact and interview we felt confident of R&W’s local marketplace knowledge and contacts with prospective purchasers. We were delighted with the outcome and we were kept informed of all developments on a daily basis throughout the campaign. The marketing material was reviewed and refined to capitalise on the marketplace feedback throughout the process.
David’s friendly and reassuring manner greatly facilitated the overall experience and we are very happy to recommend him and R&W St. Ives to other Parties who are considering selling their home.
Tony & Glenda Neill - 34 Eastern Arterial Road, St Ives
We have always found Daniel Cook to be enthusiastic, helpful and understanding both the market and his clients. Undoubtedly, he knows the residential property market in his area and is able to use that expertise to his clients’ advantage.
Adele & Bernard Schaverien – 5 Bowater Close, Wahroonga
We were very happy with the process and outcome of the sale of our St Ives home. We asked 3 agencies to pitch for our business and selected Richardson & Wrench. They showed a good understanding of local market conditions, gave thoughtful guidance about presenting the property and proposed a clear sales strategy to maximize the sale price. David Beveridge handled the sale for us. He gave sound advice, was attentive to detail and kept us fully informed. We had over 20 parties at the first open day. After 10 days on the market, David negotiated the sale with an offshore buyer who had not personally viewed the property. It was a good result in quick time.
Dr Francis & MS Linda Buttle - 23 Mungarra Avenue, St Ives
“We selected Daniel and Mark Cook from Richardson and Wrench St Ives to manage our downsizing as we knew them from an earlier move 10 years before and trusted them. They found us our new property, before it hit the market, and gave us great advice on selling our existing home. We had a swift sale and were very pleased with the R&W service. We would certainly recommend them.
Clive & Bernadette Chandler – 34 Willis Ave, St Ives
7 years ago we bought our house in St Ives through Daniel Cook from Richardson & Wrench and when it came to selling the house recently we did not hesitate in returning to Daniel for his assistance. His expertise in the St Ives real estate market helped us enormously. Not only did we achieve an excellent result and quickly, we also received great customer service.
Malcolm & Elaine MacDonald – 20 Catherine Street, St Ives
The sale of the family home (we occupied it for 26 years) can be quite stressful. Yet you succeeded in transforming the process in to a smooth, stress- and hassle-free experience. At our first meeting you provided a realistic indication of the market value, proposed a modest marketing plan, and a three week campaign. You also advised us to time the sale prior to the major Spring selling season as there would be fewer competing properties on the market.
On the day of the auction eleven contracts were taken out. The auctioneer you recommended was able to achieve a great outcome.
David, with your professionalism and sincerity you are a credit to your firm and indeed the real estate industry. We would unhesitatingly recommend your services.
Mike & Bev Fisher - 4 Hovey Avenue, St Ives
We are very glad to have chosen you over other local agents to sell our parents’ home of 47 years. You were less interested in a quick sell and more into getting the best possible price and understood our needs and the requirements of our situation. You went out of your way to assist us in preparing the house for auction and your patience, diligence and professionalism during those months was evident. Especially when the situation became complicated and potentially volatile. Thank you once again to you and your team for all your effort and guidance.
Antony & David Skinner - 29 Vista Street Pymble
I wanted to thank you for a terrific result with the sale of my property. They say selling a house is one of the most stressful things in life, well I can assure you it wasn't for me. My property was sold before auction at a great price and from the start to the finish your company have been extremely professional and friendly. I have shared my experience with work colleagues and friends. Thank you again and wishing you both all the very best for the future.
Rachel Joseph – 2 Whitehaven Street, St Ives
Thank you for your tireless effort and dedication towards us as your client.

In the end our house was sold in only 10 days for a price that exceeded our expectations.
Simon & Simon Beddow - 98 Yanko Road, West Pymble
We wish to thank you sincerely for the most professional way in which you handled the sale of our house. Your advice on how to present the home, of the suggested inspections and suggestions of tradespeople to do small repairs no doubt helped to obtain an excellent result. We were very pleased the house sold so quickly which was no doubt due to you constant attention to the project.
Sandra & Phil Dudgeon - 25 Kokoda Avenue, Wahroonga
Sandra and I wanted to thank you for the professionalism and courtesy with which you handled our purchase. Given the lengthy settlement period involved, and the fact that we intended to do several renovations to the property, we were particularly grateful for your willingness to arrange access to the property with the vendors in the interim period prior to settlement.
Chris Galloway - 2 Glenrock Avenue, Wahroonga
We wish to place on record our appreciation for Milton's helpful approach. His highly effective sales engagement process enabled us to secure a sale in a short time frame and at a price in the upper segment of the target price range. He fully justified the confidence we placed in him and we would be pleased to endorse his exemplary performance to anybody requiring his professional services.
Anne & Neil Peckham - 31 Lowry Crescent, St Ives
Milton had a thorough look around our house, but wouldn't be drawn on a selling price until he had done more research. When he came back, he had a presentation drawn up, going through similar properties that had recently sold in our area, what they had sold for, and how ours compared. Finally we had a scientific assessment of what our house was likely to fetch. Milton inspired our confidence there and then.
Malcolm - 7 Burraneer Avenue, St Ives

Dear Jayne, I would like to express our appreciation for professional approach to the sale of our home. In preparing to sell we interviewed eight agents. Whilst all presentations were of a high standard, you stood out because of your personality and enthusiasm. We gave you a very tight schedule to put the house on the market, which you fully met and sold our home for premium result well beyond our expectations which we feel was largely a result of your energy and selling skills. We have since recommended you to several people we know and would be happy to recommend you to anyone wishing to sell their house.

Jayne DeMaio acted as agent for my sister and I in the sale of our parent’s estate. She advised and assisted with property detailing which helped us achieve a great result. She kept us fully informed during the marketing of the level of interest and commitment of parties requesting contracts and making offers. Jayne showed a serious professional commitment to realising the best outcome for us and throughout the process and her tireless efforts resulted in a price considerably higher than our expectations. I would not hesitate to use her services again and would recommend her to anyone selling property in the area.

Dear Jayne, A short note to thank you for the efficient and professional manner in which you conducted the sale of our property which secured much more than what we initially expected. We appreciate your help in concluding this sale to our utmost satisfaction.

Dear Jayne, I express my sincere thanks for all your hard work in acting for me in the sale. As executer of an estate I had to comply with requirements of three solicitors, in addition to beneficiaries who all wanted the best result. Your straightforward and professional approach gave me clear guidelines in relation to presenting and marketing the property. Your support made my job so much easier than it might otherwise have been. I greatly appreciated your skills in assessing potential purchasers and, in the end, being able to negotiate a result significantly higher than the top estimate given by two other local agents. It was a pleasure working with you and I will have no hesitation in recommending your services to friends. Malcolm Anderson

In the absence of all cliché characteristics that agents are known to have, David is a breath of fresh air. His strength lies in his truthful, calm nature, which brings instant ease to the vendor and most importantly comes a trustworthiness that is clearly evident to prospective buyers.

I would go out of my way to buy or sell through David again. Not only did he achieve a fantastic result on the sale of our home, he did so with honesty, integrity and expediency. This is one agent who could single-handedly debunk the "real estate agent" myth.
