" Dear Max, My husband and I would like to thank you for managing the sale of our property at 16 Evans St Anglesea so expeditiously. We appreciate your professional approach throughout the process. You accurately predicted the market value of the property, which was not easy given the uniqueness of the property. You adopted a pragmatic approach to the marketing campaign and showed considerable ingenuity by organising use of the drone and tapping into the Melbourne market through one of your affiliates. When negotiating the sale, you were able to bring both of the parties together to achieve common objectives. You also went above and beyond by assisting the vendor with the accounting aspects of the sale. As selling this house was very significant for us, we found it particularly helpful the way you kept us informed throughout the whole process. We wish you much success with your Real Estate business. Kind regards Frances Bruce "

"Surf Coast Real Estate 79 Great Ocean Road Anglesea Vic 3220 Attention: Max Dolman Dear Max Fiona and I would like to express our thanks to you, Andrew and Elena for the manner in which you conducted yourselves when selling our property in Anglesea. We purchased this property in 2004 through Smyth Real Estate and over the next 11 years had a good working relationship with Smyth's which then became Surf Coast Real Estate. It can be a difficult and stressful time when selling a property in which we as a family enjoyed so many wonderful times, and have fond memories of. We were very impressed with the relaxed, confident, friendly but at all times professional and assuring manner which you showed to Fiona and I, and very satisfied with the price you secured within the expected time frame. Please be assured that we will not hesitate in recommending you and your firm to our friends and others. Yours Sincerely Ken Wright "

Feel free to allow them to contact me if they so wish. Yours sincerely, Yvonne Preston "
"In September 2013 the decision was made to sell our family home of over 50 years. We searched the Surfcoast area for a real estate agency with whom we felt comfortable and would get the best possible price, but wouldn't swamp us with sales double talk. We were looking for an experienced, honest, hard working, enthusiastic, straight shooting agency. We found all that in Smythe Real Estate at Anglesea. The Agencys' philosophy is based around giving priority to the Owners needs. This can be difficult to put into practice as it takes two parties to make a sale. However, we were comfortable that Smythe's got this balance right. Their 'estimated Sale Price range' was the highest we received and the price obtained was at the top-end of the range. We were delighted with their approach to selling our property. They were extremely enthusiastic, hard working, providing excellent communication throughout the selling process and good feedback about prospective Buyers' opinions and likelihood of bidding. Advertising costs were quite reasonable; there was no pressure to add extra advertising that we didn't believe was justifiable. If any prospective clients of Smythe Real Estate wish to ring us for a verbal confirmation of the above and/or to answer any other questions, just ask the Owner (Max Dolman) or one of the Staff for our phone number."
