" Leighton is the consummate professional. The sale of our unit could not be placed in better hands. "
At our very first interview with Leighton it was clearly evident that we were dealing with the person who could be trusted to deliver the outcomes we desired from the sale of our unit. He was able to tell us the size of our unit, what our strata levies were, what the record price for a 1-bedder in our street was and the record price was for a 2-bedder of similar size. He outlined his strategy and plan to mitigate the challenges to achieve our goals. Having already interviewed two other real estate agents, we entrusted Leighton with the sale of our property then and there. A decision vindicated with an offer above our expectations being accepted and contracts exchanged within 72 hours of our first open house. Something that Leighton had predicted – not because of any cockiness, but because of his depth of local knowledge and marketing astuteness applied against a tried and tested process which delivers the results for him and his clients. Acknowledging that real estate is a people and personality business, Leighton is the consummate professional driven by honesty, sincerity and a genuine need to achieve the best possible outcomes for his vendors. We are over the moon with the sale of our unit and there is no doubt in our mind that this is all due to Leighton.
" We are more than satisfied with the service provided by Leighton in the sale of our property. "
We are grateful for Leighton's attention to our needs, his knowledge of the market and advice re timing / price range related to our sale. He is excellent with his communication with regular updates. He followed up on each request as promised. We can see that he was doing his best on our behalf. As a result, we are happy with the outcome. We will be most happy to ask him to help us with the purchase of a new home.
" Excellent experience "
Right from the first meeting we found Leighton to be friendly, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. He is such a diligent and professional Real Estate agent. We would definitely recommend Leighton and Award Real Estate to anyone considering selling their home. And a shout out to David, Neil and Lachlan, fine people.
" Excellent Service All-Round! "
Leighton and his team at Award Group Real Estate team have been extremely professional, committed and went above and beyond my expectations for what I could ask for in an agent who just sold my property. He has great knowledge of the market and area, openly shares his advice about advertising and open housing arrangements, always keeps me updated with the sale of the property, and gave me total confidence in his ability and the sale of the property. I am very satisfied with the service and result. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a top-notch agent wanting to sell their property.
" Phenomenal experience "
Leighton has gone above and beyond in helping is with our first home. From advice and working around our schedules to sending us assistance and minor renovations, Leighton has been there to help through it all. Couldn’t have done it without him.
" Excellent! Highly Recommended "
Leighton went above and beyond to secure the sale of our property. He was insightful, and more than willing to provide suggestions/solutions to adapt along the way. Leighton was also extremely professional when another local agent selling in the same block, tired every trick in the book to sabotage/prevent the sale. Very pleased and would not hesitate in using Leighton and his team again!
" Totally Impressed! "
Leighton and his team from Award Group Real Estate have been extremely professional and understanding in the selling of my unit. His structured advertising, open home arrangements and his knowledge of the area gave me total confidence in his ability.
" Excellent Performance "
Leighton is very professional and very accommodating. He goes out of his way, sometimes even calls you outside business hours just to update you on vital information resale or property. Leighton has been very precise with his information, someone you can trust and realistic with his customers. Leighton’s team at Award Group deserve a five star rating
" Perfect and stress free "
Leighton Avery recently sold our house at Winston Hills. Being a local himself, Leighton has an amazing knowledge of the local area and realistic perspective when it comes to the market. From the start he was very helpful and supportive. I would not hesitate to recommend Leighton any property vendors
" So grateful to have Leighton – he saved the day "
From my first phone call with Leighton I knew I had made the right decision in listing my property with him. After no luck after 3 months with another agent, I decided a changer was needed. Leighton was very professional and knowledgeable, full of helpful and useful advice, brought solid strategies and was always available to answer any concerns. As a result he found a buyer for my place in under 3 weeks and I couldn’t be happier. Thanks so much – he saved the day!
" Leighton Avery – top notch agent. "
Leighton is experienced, has a good understanding of the property market, was tactful in dealing with potential buyers, worked hard and always willing to do extra to secure an offer, always kept me informed of the progress and gave me good advice of the next step should there be a setback in the campaign. I have no hesitation in recommending him to any vendor.
" Family Home for nearly 30 years "
Lochlan, Samuel, Tayla and David thank you so much for helping us sell our house. We were very impressed with your professionalism and knowledge of the real estate market of 5 Dickens Street. Everything was explained to us, you kept us updated with the sale, and the whole process went smoothly.
" Definitely Recommend "
From our first meeting Leighton showed great enthusiasm and was fully committed to getting the best possible price for our home. During the selling process Leighton communicated constantly and provided us with feedback from every potential buyer. His insights into the market allowed us to make informed decisions and his advice during the entire process was extremely helpful. We tried selling our home with other local real estate agents and were disappointed with the lack of professionalism that they showed and we were pleasantly surprised with how Leighton conducted his work. I would like to commend Leighton for his professionalism and definitely recommend him to anyone looking to sell their property.
" Committed, Hardworking and Professional. "
Leighton made the whole process very easy for me. The property needed renovation prior to going on the market and he organised quotes and coordinated this work to get it on the market quickly. His communication was excellent, keeping me informed throughout the whole process. He worked extremely hard to get the property sold during a very difficult time in the Market, with a higher than expected drop in property prices and outcomes of Banking Royal Commission making it harder for buyers to obtain loans. However Leighton continues to suggest new strategies to get buyers interested. I was extremely happy with Leighton’s commitment, worth ethic and professionalism. I believe he achieved the best possible price for the property during a difficult market, and I really appreciate his efforts.
" Excellent Communication "
Leighton did really well to secure a sale for me in a difficult market. He was very thorough and updated me before and after every home. He also has an excellent knowledge of the Meadowbank area. Would high recommend to other vendors.
After 4 whole months on the market without a sale and after 2 failed Auctions with another ‘high profile’ agent and agency, I was at a point of despair and didn’t know what to do! Then I met David and his team from Award Group Real Estate. It wasn’t until after I signed with David and his team which included Lochlan, Leighton and Samuel, to sell my property that I realised not all agents are the same. David and his team were recommended to me by a family member who’d sold with them some years ago. They suggested I give him a call, and I am certainly glad that I did! David and his team were committed to my final result, professional and above all considerate and caring to my having been living at the property for many decades to that point. They were never pushy, although certainly not scared to offer their valuable opinion in how they felt to best handle the sale, the market, and were always thinking outside the square. Would I sell with Award Group again? Absolutely! I cannot recommend them highly enough and I believe that their attention to detail, along with their hands on (team) aspect is what sets them and their agency well above the competition. If my experience can help someone else make the right decision upfront; take it from me – Award Group should be your number one choice if you are thinking of selling a property! Their service, results, marketing and professional manner throughout my sale were second to none (and I had a direct comparison to work off). If you are looking to sell a property, make sure you give Award Group a call.
" Couldn't ask for more! "
Leighton invested a lot of time in ensuring we were constantly up to date and feeling comfortable with the whole process. His knowledge of the market and real estate was second to none and his professionalism was first class. He worked tirelessly around the clock with passion which helped us achieve the outstanding result we got on the day of auction. David was highly professional, a friendly manner and extremely knowledgeable on real estate and the market trends. His true hard work in the lead up, and especially on the day of auction, lead to the best result we could’ve every hoped for! The team at Award Real estate are just so passionate about what they do. Thank you guys!
David made sure we weren't left in the dark and constantly kept us updated and making sure everything was running smoothly. His service was the best i've ever had and with his staff, they have done the best job that we could have asked for.
At all times, David & his team were thoroughly professional. We benefited from their expert knowledge & especially appreciated David's honest & accurate price expectations as well as his sound advice about how to market our properties to best advantage.
The staff at Award Group were honest, enthusiastic & well presented at all times.
Your genuineness & commitment is definitely something we appreciate. All the little touches also didn't go unnoticed. We wish you all the success in your future endeavours.
We much appreciate the efforts of Award Group with the sale of our home & the excellent way it was conducted during the course of the 3 months the contract went for.
We would like to thank the team for a very sucessful sale of our property in Federal Road. We were very happy to have a quick sales and extremely happy with the price.The staff were very professional and considerate at all times. We have no hesitation in recommending Award Group to anyone needing real estate services.
I spoke to a dozen local Real Estate Agents & felt David was the most motivated agent & his good attention to detail was clear from the sample of marketing material he left with me. David was consistently professional in all his dealings with me & made the sale very easy. Award Group provided me with great customer service.
