My brother, my sister and I, the 3 Vendors of 98 Smith Avenue, Allambie Heights, were very pleased with Reade Havenstein’s performance throughout the whole selling process. He communicated well throughout, keeping us informed of what was happening at every stage. He used his market knowledge to give us a realistic estimate of the likely value of the property at auction, pointing out that the relatively large block size and good position relative to transport and Warringah Mall offset the disadvantages of an old, well-worn house. Throughout the open days, he informed us of the number of viewers, how many contracts had been issued and, where possible, the price expectations of those taking contracts. He was able to convince us not to accept a fairly handsome offer prior to the auction and he was right. The auction itself was very well organised. Reade was assisted by several of his fellow agents and they made sure that all potential buyers got their chance to bid and help drive the price up. We were very pleased with the result and with the help had received from Reade Havenstein.
