Sound Knowledge of the local Property Market
I have sold before with Graeme and Brett and I found their professional approach to be solid. They are always amicable and have a sound knowledge of the local property market. I would not hesitate in recommending either of them and Bay.View.Beach Real Estate if you are looking to sell.

Thank you Brett and Simone. Yes, the market was a trickier road than we had expected, but we got there! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you both.

Went above and beyond
Graeme and Simone of Bay.View.Beach Real Estate recently assisted us with the sale of our property in Mona Vale. They were both such a delight to work with and went above and beyond to make sure we were always ok with how things were proceeding. Simone was especially helpful with the styling. We would happily recommend the Bay.View.Beach Real Estate team to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area

I would highly recommend Ken, Simone & Graeme
We have the pleasure of using Bay.View.Beach as our new property managers of our Belrose property. Ken, Simone and Graeme were very informative and helpful, as this is our first rental property. They helped us through process, which ran smoothly and keep us updated on anything that arises. I would highly recommend them.

A Boutique Agency was the way to go....
Our beautiful waterfront home was on the market with another agent unsold. We decided to relist and sell with Brett as we felt that a boutique agency was the way to go. Brett was absolutely outstanding to work with on the sale of our property. His honesty, drive, determination, advice, commitment and communication on the sale of our property was second to none. Don't bother with the 'name agencies' as you are only a number to them and they are all about volume, inflated stories and themselves. Brett is vastly different in his approach. Brett's professionalism, enthusiasm, and confident approach, along with amazing negotiation skills, delivered us a brilliant result on the sale of our home. Brett is such a genuine gentleman who was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I would recommend Brett in a heartbeat to anyone wanting to sell a property

An agent of integrity and loyalty
It is with great pleasure and ease that I formally recommend Michele as an agent of integrity and loyalty. We chose to sell at a difficult time in the market and things took longer and there were times we nearly lost heart. Michele continued to fight for us and believed the place would sell. After almost giving up Michele's determination and effervescence paid off and a buyer was found. Generous with her time, tenacious in her approach, Michele guided us through a difficult time and came up with a deal both sides were happy with. We appreciated her efficiency and her honesty through the process.

Reliable, honest & trustworthy
I would like to relate my pleasant experience of selling my home through BVB real estate with Michele Edwards-Claus handling the sale. At 75 years of age and dealing with this situation myself, I had every confidence in Michele's thoroughness and management of the whole process. From Styling, marketing, helpful suggestions,handling of prospective purchasers to liaising with conveyancers. Michele was available at any time whenever I needed advice. Everything was done most professionally and with care. I should have no hesitation in recommending Michele to anyone who is looking for a reliable, honest and trustworthy sales agent.
09 Feb 2019
Professional Manner at all times
Graeme and Ken, were more than helpful, always returning our calls and questions, they both operated in a professional manner at all times and helped get the sale across the line. We are delighted with the purchase and settled in very well and enjoying the “Bayview” lifestyle, Thanks again.

Thanks for such a positive and enjoyable experience
Michele was so helpful and knowledgeable throughout the whole process of selling our home. Her knowledge of the area and dedication are second to none. This was a successful outcome for Nick and I through Michele diligence and efficiency. She even when out of her way to organise cleaners, styling and even loaned us props to uplift the look of our property. She went above and beyond in every instance and we will be definitely using her services in the future. Michele is an asset to Bay.View.Beach Real Estate, her knowledge, dedication, attention to detail and customer service skills are second to none. Thanks for such a positive and enjoyable experience,

Highly Professional at All Times
My sisters and I found both Graeme and Simone to be highly professional at all times, honest, communication lines always open via phone call, text or email, and attention to detail wonderful. We always felt we knew exactly what was happening and never in the dark as to prospective purchasers, offers, etc. They both have a great sense of humour and we shared many a laugh!
Due to the unusual zoning of the property, it was a difficult sale, but with great patience and perseverance by Graeme and Simone the right purchaser was sourced.
This was a very emotional sale of a much loved family home of over 70 years and Graeme and Simone always showed great empathy, compassion and kindness towards us. I would have no hesitation in recommending Graeme & Simone and the team at Bay.View.Beach.

A great team who love what they are doing!
“Bay.View.Beach Real Estate is a family owned, family operated company. They work with you like a part of the family and take all the stress away when you are buying or selling. We have worked with them twice. I was impressed with Graeme's diligence and his attention to detail and not letting prospects slip away and instead, understanding their needs and following them up. This is when I was the buyer. Having bought our dream house, we needed to sell our own house. Knowing our conditions, Graeme said he believed he could achieve this. Having trusted him already, we have agreed to make a sales agency agreement, at which point I have met the real power behind scenes; Graeme’s daughter Simone. Simone took charge of the entire sales process, organised people to furnish the house with great care and attention to detail. BVB Real Estate is a great team; they love what they are doing, they know their business, they work like bees and they never make you feel like customers, but friends. I am greatly impressed with this team and I would recommend to anyone who wants to buy or sell.

Wonderful Experience dealing with Brett & Simone
We found the BVB team to be very professional, helpful and they demonstrated their experience in every manner which culminated in our home being sold in 4 days at the top end of our price expectations. We were well informed at all times what was to happen and had regular feedback on each days progress. Wonderful experience dealing with Brett & Simone.

Michele was fabulous.
She facilitated the window cleaners, even met them outside to bring them in to the apartment. Was willing to go above and beyond to make sure the open houses/swapping over of keys etc did not inconvenience me at all. Kept me up to date with what was happening, what her recommendations were and how we would move forward. I found her very friendly, approachable, confident in her promises, organized, always on time (if not earlier) and wanted to hire her on the spot when we first met. Would happily recommend her to anyone looking to sell.

Thank you so much Brett
BVB acted as our agent for the sale of our apartment in January/February 2016. The sale was negotiated expertly during this period with the minimum of disruption for open house inspections. Our property was presented well by Brett Marsden with emphasis on its location and condition to achieve our price. He kept us informed about the number of interested clients and made timely follow up calls to prospective buyers. All aspects of the sale were handled well by Brett and his able staff and he achieved all that he promised without any fuss. We recommend Bay.View.Beach real estate and particularly Brett Marsden for his excellent service.

Graeme and Simone were fantastic
They sold our property within a few weeks and we sold for a price higher then we initially thought we could sell for. They both went above and beyond to ensure the property was sold with as less stress to us as possible and I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to sell their property.

I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Marsden
Brett Marsden has proven to be an exceptional sales agent for my Palm Beach holiday apartment.

I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Marsden for those who require initiative combined with professional diplomacy.

Whether buying or selling, you’re in good hands with Bay.View.Beach.
The folks at Bay.View.Beach Real Estate are amazingly refreshing, they actually listen to you, then call you back when they have a property which matches your requirement.This is a buyer’s testimonial, but it should encourage any potential vendor to engage BVB Real Estate. They will take the time to listen carefully and match up your property with a buyers needs.

Graeme has had the highest sale price in Bayview Heights three years running
When we decided to sell our home of some 30 years we commissioned appraisals from 3 local agents, with three very mixed reports, none of which we believed reflected the true market assessment of our unique property. Graeme was very confident from the outset and predicted a sale price above previous assessments. Graeme's quiet professionalism and confidence gave us the secure feeling that we could rely on him to find a buyer and get the deal done. Graeme is a master of clinching a deal, and then closing it. He has had the highest sale price in Bayview Heights three years running. We have recommended him to other Bayview residents and will continue to do so.

Presentation, Feedback & Reports first class
We would like to thank you for your efforts in selling our property in Warriewood.
This being the fourth house we have sold, I must say that your folder presentation,
enthusiasm and weekly feedback and reports have not been experienced in any of our
previous sales. Also thank you Simone for your valued advice in presenting our home and Graeme
for your expert salesman approach, which both contributed to a quick and successful
sale. We would certainly have no hesitation in recommending your services to any one
considering selling their property in a professional and friendly manner.

Michele has set the bar high!
An unexpected & really excellent experience. Michele has set the bar high, so i presume the practice has internal training and guidelines for thier agents to follow. Michele went that extra mile to successfully progress the sale. She demonstrated, professionalism, integrity and hard work - nothing was a problem - yet it really took some considerable effort due to the vagaries of the legal teams. I think both the purchaser and vendor would be happy. This is how the profession of Real Estate should be practiced. Great shoes too!

They earnt our respect
They say selling a home can be one of the more stressful things in life, and we certainly were very anxious sellers – that is until we met Graeme, Simone and the team. We cannot recommend them highly enough. They earnt our respect and exceeded our expectations by selling the property within one week. They took the time to listen to our needs and gave us practical advice and assurance when we needed it. They were confident of a result even when we were not so sure of what the market was doing. The whole experience could not have gone smoother.

Michele and Bay.View.Beach Real Estate was the right one.
When considering selling our unit we looked at all Real Estate Agents on the Northern Beaches, and have no doubt that our decision to engage the services of Michele and Bay.View.Beach Real Estate was the right one. We found Michele to be reliable, honest and always made the time to listen and to provide timely feedback.
We have been delighted in the highest level of service provided and would not hesitate in recommending Michele and Bay.View.Beach team.

I was treated with respect & professionalism
As soon as I met Simone I knew I had found my agent, and I was not even looking. I just went to an open house in the area, before we listed ours. Graeme kept in contact over quite a few months before we were ready to sell, keeping me up to date with the market. When it was time to sell they were both there that day and had brochures, sign boards and everything sorted to go to market well within a week. Simone and Graeme made themselves available anytime on any day, nothing was too much trouble. Even to the point of looking over the house when we were away. They sold the house and it is still the record price for the year. I cannot praise them high enough”

Brett Marsden sold my property which was difficult to sell
Brett Marsden sold my property which was difficult to sell as there were 2 houses on one title. I found Brett to be the complete professional. He was sensitive and accommodating to both my and the tenants needs, worries and fears.. He was also helpful with advice and information during my attempt to subdividge the property.
Nothing was too difficult for him. Being a widow I relied on Bretts honest advise and encouraging support.

Great communication and your willingness to go the extra mile, even driving the contracts back. You achieved a good price.It has been a pleasure getting to know you both. You work wonderful as a team and we wont hesitate to refer anyone we know who is selling in the future.

Graeme did not give up on a particular buyer.
My property was quite unique and consequently, over the next 12 months, Graeme did not give up on a particular buyer. Graeme is down to earth, a straight shooter and overall persistent and i am grateful for that. He took on a difficult task and refused to concede, unlike others around him.
I always found Graeme and Simone to be hard working, very courteous and honest, traits that no doubt came across well with their buyers, which inevitably facilitated a successful result.
