"My family and I would like to thank you for your highly personal and professional service in selling our family home. From the listing appointment through to the auction and final exchange of the property, the whole process was seamlessly managed and hassle free. If you are looking for a loyal, innovative and hard working agent to assist you with your acquisition or sale, I would highly recommend Annabelle Feng of RT Edgar's Boroondara office."

- Deborah Lynn, Toorak

"Nick impressed us with his industry and local area knowledge, his patience, support and professionalism. It was always what was important to us, never the quick sale or another statistic. Nick passed on his experience and insight regarding property in Carlton and continued contact over several years as we explored purchase options."

- Chris Alford, Kew

"Nick Walker worked long hours dealing with the very large group of interested buyers, identifying likely bidders and following up their questions and concerns, and providing very effective marketing support. He also advised on how best to prepare our property for sale and passed on names of excellent tradesmen to bring the property back to its best."

- Vendor, Hawthorn

"Paul is a unique agent. His knowledge of the market is current and his understanding of market movements is broad - and refreshingly, he gives an honest opinion. His experience is obvious from his extensive knowledge of real estate and how best to market the property, I really felt that he worked his hardest FOR ME to achieve a result that exceeded my expectations rather than just trying to sell."

- Vendor, Richmond

"We had a great experience selling our house with RT Edgar Boroondara, and Paul made that process stress free and enjoyable. Paul was hard working throughout the campaign, and we had confidence that we were in good hands to achieve the best price possible."

- Vendor, Hawthorn East

"Ted sold my parents’ home for a higher price than we had aimed to achieve, after another local agent failed to produce a single offer. He persevered in what we know now is a very difficult market. His behaviour throughout the campaign has been professional, thoughtful and exemplary. He was truly careful of the asset. I have no hesitation in recommending Ted and his team."

- Bella Freeman, Hawthorn

"Ted Jao and Annabelle Feng were tasked with selling this site quietly, off market and achieved the price we requested. Though there were a number of difficulties with the site, Ted and Annabelle managed the situations most professionally and sympathetically. They have successfully acted for me in the past and have again managed to achieve a good result for me."

- Simon Gurevich, Kew

"We engaged Ted Jao and Annabelle Feng to sell our family home. The whole selling process went along very smoothly because of their efforts. They achieved a sale at auction, so we were very pleased. We have recommended Annabelle and Ted to several people since our auction & would have no hesitation in working with them again."

- Steve Just, Balwyn North

"Alex’s knowledge of the area and complicated market was exceptional. He took the time to get to know us and we felt that this allowed him to better understand the approach to take. The advertising campaign was of the highest quality and ultimately, the combination of Alex’s enthusiasm, professionalism, service, the team effort and commitment, resulted in a very positive outcome on the day of the auction."

- Vendor, Kew

He is the best! Having previously had experience with selling property, we made sure that this time around we would scout out the best. Alex has excellent knowledge of the market and knew exactly what to do to get our place sold. He is a real agent who goes out into the market to sell, rather than the type to sit back and wait for emails to come in. He successfully sold our property in less than three weeks.

- Mateen and Leasa, Malvern

" Brett is extremely knowledgeable, experienced, honest, positive, helpful and just a wonderful human being. I have sold and purchased several properties in the USA, and can attest to the fact that Brett's attention to detail, exceptional knowledge of all aspects of real estate, his kindness, caring, positive attitude, and superb skills as an auctioneer are beyond reproach and hard to beat."

- Tracey O'Connor and Denise Newman, Balwyn

"Brett's level of professionalism and attention to detail is second to none. He is engaging and friendly and never dismissive of any possible buyers, no matter how they present themselves. He worked into the sale plan all of our needs and specific requests, particularly regarding our unusual settlement requirements."

- Richard & Elizabeth Gaarenstroom, Kew

"Cecillia was very helpful, proficient, punctual and has always followed our instructions. Her professionalism, perseverance, communication and credibility were always outmost impressive. This resulted in our house being sold on auction day and a very good price achieved. Which we are very pleased, especially considering the current decline in real estate market."

- Dragan and Ana Palavestra, Hawthorn

"Justina and I would like to thank you for a job well done. Your excellent service, frequent communication and professionalism made the sale process much easier for us. We knew instantly we had selected the right agent. You went above and beyond and we would certainly recommend your services to anyone that is interested in buying or selling a home."

- Vendor, Hawthorn

"Nothing is too much trouble for Chris. He made us feel we were his only clients. He helped find tradespeople, followed up with the conveyancer and found a stylist. His communication was excellent and his advice spot on. In fact, he felt like one of the family."

- Mike and Jenny Hamilton, Hawthorn

"Chris worked relentlessly to follow up buyers, kept me up to date with open and honest communication, and offered practical strategies during the sale to maximise exposure on the market. Anyone can sell good property in a booming market, but the sign of a great agent is someone who can sell challenging property in a cooling market. Chris went above and beyond to get my property sold"

- Vendor, Surrey Hills

"I first met James at an open for inspection for a neighbours’ home and was impressed with his openness and maturity. We were fortunate enough to sell before a campaign and during that period l found James to be punctual, professional, a great communicator and willing to go the extra mile."

- Vendor, Box Hill

"I would confidently recommend both James and Nick from RT Edgar as l believe they are a winning combination of youthfulness, enthusiasm and experience. I was impressed that he went out of his way to reformulate current plans of the house to the potential purchasers as they wanted to do additions. I know that both James and Nick expertly negotiated to produce an outcome that made me happy to sign the dotted line and move onto the next stage of my life."

- Catherine Carnegie, Box Hill

"Jeff is a dynamic, authentic and professional real estate agent. He kept in close contact with us throughout the campaign, achieving a great negotiated purchase price that involved several trips to rural areas to meet face-to-face with the vendor to advance and then close our deal. I strongly recommend Jeff for his experience, astute market knowledge, negotiation skills and affable demeanour. "

- Teresa De Sisto, Kew

Jeff recently sold our house off market in Hawthorn East achieving a record price for the Anderson Park area. We were delighted but not surprised given his formidable skills in negotiation, communications and his overall professionalism during the sales effort. Strongly recommend."

- Faye and Stuart Spencer, Hawthorn East

"From the onset, Lawrence was tremendously patient and courteous towards my mother and I. He demonstrated a sound knowledge of the market, created a tailored media and marketing strategy for our property and had a firm grasp of the minutest details of the entire auction process. "

- Vendor, Kew

"Lawrence Zhu was the selling agent for my beloved property. He worked extremely hard and went to extra mile to assist us in selling at great price. Due to his outstanding skills and persistence, we achieved outstanding results! Thank you Lawrence! We have no hesitation to recommend Lawrence to any friends or owners who are willing to sell."

- Vendor, Balwyn

“You were nothing but supportive and highly professional. Your philosophy that we were a team in this experience shone through. You assisted in any way you could, given the short time frame I gave you, even assisting in moving furniture for photographs, keeping me updated every day, offering me all the information you had so that I could achieve the best possible outcome.These things I truly appreciated.”

- Lee Thurlow, Kew

We appointed Marilyn over three other agents after meeting her a year prior. Marilyn was patient providing time to consider. I also appreciated listening to what Marilyn had to say from a woman’s point of view. Marilyn inspired confidence in us that we would not be let down with the services she and RT Edgar could provide. She understood the stress of making a decision to place two properties in an agent’s hands."

- Karline Merlino and Antonio Merlino, Hawthorn

"Rachael is both a highly professional agent and wonderfully personable at the same time. She never over inflated our perception of where we sat in the market, but we were able to trust her to aim for the best outcome possible. Rachael also worked tirelessly to gain us extra media exposure both online and in print, which is exceedingly hard to obtain. We are delighted with the results she was able to achieve."

- Luisa and David Watson, Hawthorn

"Our experience with Rachael was absolutely amazing. She worked tirelessly to kick start our campaign within the week to meet our request to be at auction 4 weeks later. Rachael adapted her approach to fit in with our needs and we felt empowered throughout the whole campaign. We are thrilled with the result. We have sold numerous properties and Rachel is by far the most impressive. No stone was left unturned, each step in the process well considered and planned."

- Cassandra and Kyall Walker, Hawthorn

"For the last ten years Bianca has been managing our properties. She intimately knows the rights and responsibilities of both landlords and tenants. Bianca has a very good memory, so that if a tenant raises say a maintenance issue, she is able to picture the situation and pass the information to the appropriate tradesman.We greatly value her judgement in selecting tenants as reference checking by Bianca and her team is extremely thorough."

- Barrie and Jenny Dempster, Hawthorn

"Bianca has been managing my rental properties for approximately 10 years now. Bianca is the ultimate Property Manager one can hope for. Very professional, reliable, efficient, trustworthy and easy to talk to. I have full confidence in her and trust her judgement in every situation. With Bianca, I know my properties and tenants are in good hands."

- Zenaida Chen, Kew

"In selecting an agent to represent us and our home for sale, it was important for us to find an agent to whom we could relate. Anne’s style is warm and very personable, yet highly professional. We had every confidence in her advice. In a tough market for vendors, she helped us sell our home at auction for a very reasonable price. She also went out of her way to help us purchase another property the following week. We are very grateful for all her assistance."

- Abby and Dean, Hawthorn

"Thank you for the great result on my townhouse recently. I have to say your attention to detail is second to none. Your hard work paid off as you and your team achieved $50k over my reserve at Auction, when initially I really didn't think you'd get anywhere near my desired price. I would have no hesitation in recommending you and I can see you are one of the diligent agents who stands up to your well recognised reputation."

- Eddie Butler, Hawthorn

"I only dealt with Nancy for a short period as everything went seamlessly. Her communication with us, in securing the property, was excellent and she even came to my work on the other side of town to meet with me. I would not hesitate to use her again."

- Mary, Hawthorn

"We would like to endorse the professionalism and capability of the RT Edgar property consultant Nikki McCarthy. Throughout the process of preparing our house for sale in Kew, through to the auction and final sale, Nikki provided excellent advice, efficient service and invaluable moral support - all delivered with enthusiasm and good humour. We were delighted with the sales process and the outcome. We unreservedly recommended Nikki to prospective vendors."

- Tracey and Robert, Hawthorn

"Nikki, your manor was friendly, positive and very professional. You were always free to give us your time and we feel that you always had our best interest at heart. We were kept up to date and informed at all times."

- Kimberly and Simon Jones, Hawthorn

“We rented for three years with RT Edgar Boroondara. Steve Guan - our property manager - was terrific. Always responded quickly to our communications. Always friendly, always focussed and efficient on settling questions and concerns. Great Service!”

- Jagdeesh Singh Dhaliwal

"Brett is the ultimate professional, and even in today's challenging market decline, he managed to obtain a superb result at Auction. He provided us with high quality reports and detailed buyer updates so we were able to feel confident in his campaign management throughout the process."

- Vendor, Hawthorn

" Brett's level of professionalism and attention to detail is second to none. He is engaging and friendly and never dismissive of any possible buyers, no matter how they present themselves. He worked into the sale plan all of our needs and specific requests, particularly regarding our unusual settlement requirements."

- Vendor, Hawthorn

“I dealt with these agents when renting an apartment in Melbourne for 2 years. They were always very professional, fast at handling matters and friendly. I'd feel confident to work with them again.”

- Jese Medina-Suarez

"We never felt pushed but always felt that we were an important part of the whole process. I know it is unusual to associate values such as honesty and integrity with real estate agents however Brett is definitely the real deal. Even though ours was a long sales campaign, he never gave us the feeling that he was tiring or losing faith in the process. Thank you Brett, we both appreciate your sincerity and friendship. "

- Vendor, Hawthorn

"We recently sold our Kew residence in May which was during the off peak season. Market conditions were not favourable with a rising rate of auctions failing to sell and prices softening in recent months. Despite this, we had a very successful auction result of 25% above the reserve price, in stark contrast to other auctions occurring across Melbourne on the same day."

- Vendor, Kew

"Marilyn communicated well and engendered confidence in us as we encountered some hurdles leading up to the sale; nothing was too difficult, it could all be resolved. We particularly liked her resourcefulness and her initiative. Marilyn is clearly an effective and a caring person who supported us all the way through the preparation for sale, marketing and very successful auction of our properties. "

- Vendor, Hawthorn

Rachael’s advice on preparing our house for sale right through to campaign end was invaluable. She was professional, knowledgeable, courteous and nothing was too much trouble. Her communication was first rate and made the whole experience much less stressful than envisaged. Rachael’s skills contributed enormously to us achieving a much higher than expected sale price before auction and we would have no hesitation in recommending Rachael to anyone considering selling their property.

- Barbara Watts

Thoroughly impressed dealing with Rachael from RT Edgar during my recent purchase and sale, her understanding of the market was perfect and my transactions were made seamless by her factual knowledge which made both my transactions seamless. I would without hesitation recommend Rachael to any prospective vendors or purchasers.

- Vicki H

Rachael was highly professional, committed and honest at all times through out our campaign ensuring I received an excellent outcome when I sold my apartment. She communicated clearly at all times and provided additional support pre and post sale.

I would highly recommend Rachael to my friends if they were thinking of selling

- Brigid O’Keefe

Rachael is a very experienced agent that understands the depth of the market, and can clearly convey what is needed. She's honest and genuinely wants the best for her clients, and has the ability to see potential beyond perceived hurdles. We sold multiple properties through Rachael which involved her expertise prior to commencing projects. Her insights were invaluable. We genuinely thank you Rachael for your hard work and unwavering commitment to obtaining outstanding results for us.

- Anna Ravindran

Today, a SOLD sticker was applied to the billboard adorning the front fence of my apartment. My real estate agent, Ms Rachel Fabbro of RT Edgar’s, had achieved an exceptional result: on the one hand, she had sold my much-loved apartment, thereby delighting me and, on the other, had made the new purchaser the proud owner of a very lovely new home. 

Calmly and competently, in a most professional manner, Rachel allayed any concerns I might have voiced on some occasions, encouraging and supporting me, so that I felt strengthened and empowered. I am not young and initially, I found the inspection process to be stressful. I forgot to put something away or - on one occasion - had not left the house when the first person arrived. This must have been difficult for Rachel, but she always acted kindly and gently towards me and after a couple of days, I started to relax and was able to place my complete trust in her.. Five days before the expected end of the sale period, two offers were on the table and I was happy to accept one of them.
Rachel Fabbro has sold almost all of the units in this complex, consisting of four gracious apartments and six attractive townhouses in a lovely garden setting. Many of the people living here also sold their former homes through Rachel, acting for R T Edgar’s. I am one of many voices echoing her praises; we are all very grateful about the way she steered us through what should have been a stressful time in our lives and I, like the others, now regard Rachel as an outstanding  businesswoman in the real estate profession, as well as a newly acquired friend..

- Marie Marchetti

Rachael is an authentically compassionate and respectful agent with deep knowledge and experience in the market. Her infectious energy and passion for real estate sets her apart from so many agents. She will get the result you want with dignity and pride.

We have bought and sold many properties and we couldn’t recommend Rachael highly enough.

- Michael Hearn

Paul is very knowledgeable about the market and gave us great advice to maximize the value of our property, We are very pleased with the process and the final outcome. Paul is also responsive, professional, efficient, and a Manningham area specialist. I would like to commend Paul for a first class and professional service. - Vendor in Templestowe

James and the whole RT Edgar team were fantastic to work with for the sale of our property. His insights and knowledge of the buyer trends and the market in our area was exceptional and at all times was honest, transparent and worked with us to achieve a great result. - Steve (vendor) in Doncaster
