It’s thanks to Marion Badenoch’s professionalism and hard work that our apartment in Darling Point achieved a strong result at auction.
Marion strived to achieve the best result from the get-go. Our circumstances were complicated because the property was a shared family asset, and we only had a short time period to get the apartment ready for inspection. Marion’s advice, guidance, support and local knowledge were invaluable. So committed was Marion that she gave up her own time to organise the preparation of the apartment – furniture removalists, painters, electrician, plumber, stylists, photography and advertising. Marion also had the delicate touch necessary to work at a fast pace on a sensitive family matter. The result was a rapid transformation of a 60s-style apartment.
Marion is clearly passionate about real estate. It was typical of her to respond to our enquiries at any time, including night and on weekends, and always in a warm and positive manner. After each open-for-inspection she phoned us to provide a thorough update, followed up in writing.
As the auction date drew near Marion carefully explained the process to us so that we were well prepared. On the night of the auction Marion worked energetically to inform and reassure both us and the prospective buyers.
We would thoroughly recommend Marion to all potential vendors.

Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into the preparation and auction of the unit that belonged to my late brother and my sister.
You kept us thoroughly informed all the time. I consider that the result achieved at auction was a result of your knowledge and expertise and would not have been achieved without your input. I have been involved in 2 other auctions, as a vendor. The time and effort that you put into our campaign far exceeded the real estate agents’ work in those previous campaigns.
I have enjoyed making your acquaintance and our regular communication.
This is a recommendation and thank you letter.
Recently your office sold our apartment in Young Street, Paddington. We are extremely happy with the results and the way your team worked with us.
This great outcome was achieved by the outstanding diligence, attention to details and the charming diplomacy of your team, Phoebe Sheperd, Marion Badenoch and Tim Muckenschnabl.
Marion has been patiently keeping in touch with us for some years, anticipating that a sale might happen. Then when the decision to sell was made, Phoebe and Marion explained the process to us in some detail. Even before there was any agreement, they helped us with their list of quality trades people to prepare the place for sale. After we signed the Agency Agreement, they moved quickly and efficiently to market the property. We had a very strong response to their email and internet promotion. So many people viewed that Phoebe, Marion and Tim had their hands full coping with the viewings.
The campaign was short - four weeks. Not wanting to miss any opportunity, Phoebe volunteered her time to open on Thursday evenings on top of the Wednesday and Saturday events. And when a dawn photo was needed, they got up at 5 o'clock on a grey Monday to catch the sunrise.
Selling is quite an emotional exercise; they nursed us through it beautifully with daily communication: phones, texts and emails. Every potential buyer was qualified. We were carefully guided so that our expectations did not run too high. No doubt my stubbornness must have been annoying. They were not discouraged, the team always responded calmly and with smiling diplomacy. Great talent.
You know the most important thing I can say in summing up is: it was fun, we really enjoyed their lively company and we'll miss them. It was a completely successful experience.
Thank you Phoebe, Marion and Tim.

Bryan and I have been fortunate to have you both as agents to assist us in the recent sale of our home in Glenview Street, Paddington. You have not only been outstanding and caring of our needs but had also managed to achieve a phenomenal result for us well above our reserve price!
We are happy and would be happy to recommend you. Thank you so much.
Ah Too and Bryan
Thank you both for doing such a terrific job on the marketing and sale of my aunt's unit. I realise it's not over till the settlement is done and dusted, but would expect all to go smoothly in that regard. So I am very grateful to you both for your consistent energy, attention to detail, regular communication and admirable professionalism to get my aunt such a good result. Well done!!
