I would just like to thank you so much for assisting me in achieving a very favourable sale price for my home.

Right from our initial meeting through to the completion of sale I was impressed by your level of expertise, attention to detail and excellent communication skills. You worked relentlessly to market the property just right finding the most appropriate prospective buyers for inspections. Not once did I feel left out of the process! I very much appreciated your regular feedback and reports.
Thank you also for going that extra mile.........making sure the house was warm, cushions were correctly placed and even disposing of wilted flowers!!....nothing was ever too much trouble for you!
I would certainly recommend you as the ideal real estate agent.

Wishing you all the best for your future listings.
- Mr & Mrs Ryan
Thank you for your professional approach to buying my first home. I would highly recommend you to my friends. Thank you for your patient and returning all my phone calls out of hours. Buying and moving is never easy, especially when you are a first home buyer, but it was made less stressful because of your assistance. Your local real estate knowledge and attention to detail was invaluable. You made everything go smooth for me and were always going out of your way to make sure I had all the information. You were not pushy to get the sale and always looked out for my best interest. You kept me in the loop every step of the way and kept me informed with every new piece of information you received, whether it was your responsibility or not. You patiently answered all my questions, were willing to accommodate my requests to view the property on a number of occasions.
Again, thank you so much for everything that you've done.
- Miss Emily H
Firstly, I like to thank Tony for all his efforts towards my purchase back in November 2009 B609 which is now back on Sale and its promised that is on target for resale with the help of the sales team.

I know that it must be a great loss for Snowden Parkes for Murray to leave. He was a true professional, but I do know the team will do an excellent job as well.

Secondly, I like to discuss my experience that I have encountered with the team on the sale of my mums property and the purchase of B912 they continuously kept me in the loop to pass on the progresses to my family they even came to my place to sign some paper work for the sale of mums property on this occasion the team even met my sister who was so happy with their honesty and professionalism and requested that they look out for a rental property around Ryde & Eastwood area.

So I can not thank enough of the Snowden Parkes Team including admin that showed us the progress of the Top Ryde City apartments last week.

I know lots of things are happening during this busy period for your team, but with the efforts they put in individual sales or purchases. This is a truly an exceptional efforts goes to you Tony to maintain a professional team.

Once again I have my hats off to you and your team.

I wish and hope everything works out in 2012 to all parties with immense satisfaction.

Please pass this on to your team thanking you from the bottom of my heart.

We recently purchased in Denistone, for which the Snowden Parkes team was the sales consultant. From the very first phone call we made to enquire about the property, right up until the date of settlement some 10 weeks later, the Sales Team was a delight to deal with. They were professional and personable, honest and courteous, and always on call to answer any questions or concerns that arose along the way. We had been searching for a new home for over 8 months before we inspected this property, during this time we dealt with many different real estate agents. We can confidently say that the service we received from Snowden Parkes was second to none. We will gladly recommend the Snowden Parkes team to anyone we know who is thinking of selling their home.
- James & Raquel Tracy
In a flat market and in the face of rising interest rates, Tony and the Snowden Parkes sales team achieved a terrific sale price for our North Ryde home.
Tony and the Snowden Parkes sales team strong work ethic and commitment were evident from our first meeting and manifest in the negotiation of a great result.

Dear Tony and the Snowden Parkes team
We would like to extend our sincere thanks for facilitating a very professional sales campaign and achieving a wonderful result with the sale of our property in just six days!
We are delighted with the result and could not be happier with the way you and your team managed the entire process. You were all confident from the outset and you all certainly delivered on all accounts.
Snowden Parkes superior market knowledge was impressive and demonstrated a thorough understanding of the attributes of the suburb.

Selling our home has been a wonderful, stress-free and rewarding experience, thank you. As mentioned, we would be happy to wholeheartedly recommend your services to any of your potential clients.

Tony and the Snowden Parkes sales team completely exceeded our expectations and sold our house for a figure significantly above the asking price in less than 2 weeks.

From our very first meeting the sales consultant was a pleasure to deal with and was at all times friendly, enthusiastic, professional and above all honest. We were greatly impressed by his knowledge of the market and his ability to attract genuine interest in our property. He was very thorough in explaining the sales process and genuinely listened to our needs and ideas. The marketing campaign was flawless from the marketing material to screening potential buyers and conducting private viewings. We always knew exactly what was happening with Snowden Parkes providing regular and informative updates.

Tony and his sales team provides an exceptional level of service and we could not have chosen a better real estate agent. I would have no hesitation in using Snowden Parkes again and would gladly recommend their services.
Yours Sincerely

Dear Tony and the Snowden Parkes Team,

Your efforts and success in the handling of the Sale of our mothers property at 29 Belmore Street Ryde were nothing short of remarkable! your marketing, the generation of high buyer interest in a well located but unspectacular property needing considerable refurbishment, a selling period of less than two weeks and a price to exceed all expectations. This was all done I believe through a combination of your market insight, local knowledge, right strategy and the sensitive management of key stakeholders - the vendors and the potential buyers. Your constant communications and feedback were exemplary not to mention your resilience, tactical flair and persistence.

To handle three 70 year olds in the way that you did was also an achievement in itself. You demonstrated a maturity and professionalism beyond your years and established an early personal base with us. You made each of us feel comfortable and knowledgeable at all stages in the process. You impressed from our first meeting, instilled confidence and as a consequence, we did not pursue other agents. This confidence was rewarded with sales performance and a great result.

Should any potential user of your services require testimony on your real estate capabilities, please use us as a case study. Again, on behalf of myself and the family, congratulations and a big thank you.

Yours sincerely
- Graham Byrne
To whom it may concern,
Having the Snowden Parkes sales team as my property consultant I have found them to be thoroughly professional in the sale of my property. I believe that first impressions are vital in society today, especially when providing a service to the public. The Snowden Parkes sales team have proven they have the knowledgeable, are confident, articulate and are an experienced property consultant.
Having resided in the home for 41 years I had become very emotionally attached. Snowden Parkes approach, re-assurance and communication throughout the sale was integral in a stress free and a terrific result.
I would gladly and will be recommending Snowden Parkes for any real estate needs and I wish all of the team the best in their career.
Yours Sincerely
- Glen Anderson
I am writing to thank you for your great effort in selling my property in Bowden Street for a price which was very close to my expectations. The entire process was conducted quickly and efficiently. I will have no hesitation in recommending your services to anybody who is looking to sell their property.
- Doug Armstrong
Dear Tony, We have dealt with your business as a vendor and as a buyer. We have been very satisfied with the experience, on both sides of the transaction. On one occasion we dealt with you personally and on the other with Simon Saad, yet the quality of service was equally high, no matter which individual managed the transaction. The service was professional and efficient and you were prepared to go the extra mile. We would certainly engage you again if the opportunity arose.
- Robert Keavney
Selling your home is always an important and usually tense time and one which needs every decision in the process to go well to maximise return and minimise hassle.
We looked at Snowden Parkes because of their reputation of client care and great results. What we got was professional outfit that understood our need to get top dollar and the strain that selling our lovely home of 20 years generates.
Snowden Parkes certainly understood our needs. They assessed the property, gave us top advice on how to prepare and present our home, developed a tailored marketing strategy and with the team not only sold the house within one week but negotiated a sales price well above what we were asking. How fantastic is that!
All that is good but the real pleasure and benefit was Snowden Parkes understanding, care, enthusiasm and dedication to the job. They have great knowledge, yes but is modest and easy to deal with. Their services did not stop when pen was put to paper they kept in touch, facilitated communication with the new buyer and when they needed to visit someone from the team always accompanied them.
In short Snowden Parkes efforts before, during and after the sale was exemplary making the tough task of selling our home easy and extremely rewarding

We would not hesitate to recommend you to our family and friends.
- Georgy & Elena Yurovskiy

Dear Tony,
We wanted to thank you for your time and efforts in helping us secure our dream home /block of land in Putney.

As you know we had been looking for quite some time, and we felt your professionalism did stand out from the rest of the other agents we were dealing with.

You kept in touch with us regularly, updating us on each new property that came up. You took the time to find a house / block of land that matched our criteria. You did not waste our time on places that you knew would not suit our needs.

With this purchase you made the buying process quick and painless. It was straight forward. We have had some bad experiences in the past with previous agents, which were not pleasant. You made this purchase experience a happy one for us. Professional and still personal.

Thank you again for your help, we really appreciate your efforts

Yeen & I would like to thank you for the successful sale of our property and the good price you achieved for us.
Without marketing, advertising & signboard you managed to seal the deal promptly.

We have no hesitation recommending you to anyone selling or buying into the property market.
- David & Yeen
We had a very tight time frame to work within to sell our house in Putney, and Tony and the Snowden Parkes team ensured it was met. This would not have happened without their work ethic and committed communication with legal representatives, executors and ourselves. Tony and the Snowden Parkes team are personable, respectful and we would not hesitate to recommend them to sell your property.
- Narelle & James
Tony and the Snowden Parkes sales team achieved and outstanding result for the sale of my property in Macquarie Park, in an unbelievably quick time. From the beginning, the team presented as friendly, trustworthy, personable and confident.

The entire team communicated clearly and personally attended to every aspect of the sale process. They clearly understand the market and the area, and I would not hesitate to recommend Tony and his team.
- Andrew Kuo
Tony and the team at Snowden Parkes were unbelievable in selling our Gladesville home.
The first nice surprise was that they showed a real interest in getting to know all of the features of our home in detail and the whole sales team through to brief them.
The team was very hands on from the beginning, taking us through the selling process, a process which is supposed to be one of the most stressful you can experience, but with his depth of experience and knowledge Snowden Parkes made it very easy.
Tony and the team showed a genuine respect to us and our situation and when he said he had contacts, he truly did. Not only was he able to sell our house in 4 days, but well over the asking price, which made the whole experience very pleasing for us to say the least!
We would not hesitate to recommend anyone to use the services of Tony and the team at Snowden Parkes, their level of professionalism and dedication is well worth any fees payable, we will use them on our next property transaction for sure.
- Brendan & Deborah Smith

Dear Snowden Parkes,
I just wanted to take the time to thank you for the honest, professional and efficient sale of my house in Marsfield. From the first meeting when we reviewed the sale prices of comparable houses in the area and subsequently agreed on the targeted sale price of my property, I felt very comfortable with your approach and honesty. My thoughts were confirmed when my house was marketed and sold above our expectations only a couple of weeks later. Throughout the process I was always fully informed and knew that you were committed to getting the best outcome. Because of the manner in which you conduct your business, I found the whole process very easy as there was no unexpected changes to our original plan, no hidden 'marketing costs' and would gladly recommend you to our friends and family.
- Ben & Katrina

Dear Snowden Parkes,
I write to thank you and to congratulate you for your great work in managing the recent sale of my Meadowbank property. I valued your professionalism in many respects - your advice prior to sale in relation to presentation of the property and timing of the sale; your judgement in relation to marketing strategy; your clean communication and regular feedback during the process. Most importantly, the property sold after just a few days on the market, at a price that exceeded my expectations and set a record for an apartment in this building. I happily commend your services to any prospective vendor, and will recommend you to my family and friends.
Sincere thanks
- Steve Dynan
The Snowden Parkes Sales Consultant acted as the real estate agent for the sale of our house. From our first meeting with Sales Consultant, we were impressed by his knowledge of the market and his friendly and honest style. The Sales Consultant made an accurate assessment of the property and the key features distinguished it from other properties in the area. He understood the types of buyers who would be interested in it, and was therefore able to target the right type of buyer with direct marketing and advertising. He gave what we felt was realistic and an honest estimate of the potential sale price, which we were able to achieve. The marketing resulted in a lot of interest in the property. The Sales Consultant screened potential buyers well, resulting in only serious buyers being taken through the property. Private viewings were conducted with minimal interruptions. In the first week the property was on the market we had a significant number of enquiries and viewings, handed out a number of contracts, and received a number of good genuine offers. Because of this, we believe we received the best price possible for the property. The Sales Consultant continually updated us throughout the entire process with information on potential buyers who had requested contracts or submitted offers, ensuring we were fully informed of the current situation, especially when critical decisions had to be made. The Snowden Parkes Sales Consultant is professional, relaxed, friendly and his outgoing personality makes him a pleasure to deal with. We would have no hesitation in recommending Snowden Parkes as a real estate agent.
- Dr. Anthony Preshaw

All the best!
