Catherine's Testimonials

Dear Catherine,

Thank you for the outstanding result you achieved on the sale of my home. I was so thrilled when we set a street record for Chesterfield Road.

Your dedication confirmed that I made the right decision entrusting the sale of my home to you. Selling your home can be a stressful process but I found your enthusiasm and people skills made it an enjoyable and exciting experience. I couldn’t have asked for more professional service.

It was refreshing to meet an agent who gave a realistic valuation of the property. I was also impressed on auction day seeing you and your team handle the eight bidders who were vying for the property and the manner in which you ensured that we achieved a great result.

I would like to thank everyone at First National Epping Central. Allison also has a wealth of experience in the Epping market and I believe that the agency is destined to become the dominant force in real estate in our area.

If I ever need to list my property again, I will be dialling Catherine Murphy straight away!

RE Catherine Murphy - First National Epping Central

Catherine recently acted on our behalf in the sale of our house in North Ryde. During the campaign we found Catherine to be helpful, attentive, professional and realistic. She demonstrated good market knowledge and technical skill throughout the process. She also provided insight and advice during the purchase of our new home.

Her cheerful, friendly but professional approach helped keep us at our ease during what is a very stressful time for anyone. Unlike previous experiences with Real Estate Agents we never felt that she just wanted to close the deal or had anything but our best interests in mind. She would not let us do anything that either of us was unsure about or uncomfortable with.

Catherine is not pushy, however when required, she is assertive, when she felt she had extracted all she could out of the negotiation with the purchaser she told us, but she always made it ctear that we had a choice.

She is backed by a good team that, from the top down, showed care and consideration for us as clients, up to and beyond the day of the sale.

We are happy wilh the price she got for our house in a challenging market, we would not hesitate to recommend that anyone considering selling their home speak to Catherine when assessing their options or looking to appoint an Agent.

Dear Catherine,

Deciding to sell our first home was one of the biggest decisions we have ever made, and after meeting other estate agents we were hesitant that selling was the right thing for us. From the moment we met you, we knew that we wanted you to sell our home. You made us confident that we would get a quick sale with a fantastic price. We believe that your enthusiasm for selling our unit as well as your exceptional skills, professionalism and experience in real estate resulted in our place selling in less than two weeks at a price well above what any other agent said was achievable.

You were committed to achieving the best result for us, accommodating specific requests regarding the marketing of the property, and answered any questions we fired at you. You went well beyond anything we would ever have expected of an agent; you did extremely well in keeping us calm under exceptionally stressful situations and gave us invaluable advice regarding the purchase of our new home.

Thank you so much for selling our home. We are extremely proud to have achieved the results we did, and believe that if we went with any other agent, we would not have achieved such a quick sale and unbelievable price, nor would we have made such a fantastic friend. We are sure that you are an invaluable member of your sales team and we would not hesitate in recommending yourself or First National Epping to any of our friends who consider selling in the future.

Dear Catherine,

Recently, my husband Justin and I had occasion to do business with you in the purchase of our new home in Eastwood.

This is just a note to let you know how pleased we were with the outstanding customer service we received from you. Your professionalism, helpfulness and ability to follow through were beyond any expectations we had. (One of the reasons we decided to purchase the property).

In this day and age good customer service is often very difficult to find, and we feel it is important that it be recognized.

Thank you for your commitment to good customer service. We would thoroughly recommend you and First National Epping to anyone who wanted to buy, sell or rent a property in the future.

Recently the sale of our property, a villa in Fontenoy Road, Macquarie Park, was handled by Catherine Murphy of Epping 1st National Real estate Agents. The price negotiated was very satisfactory to us, considering the state of the market during the early part of 2006.

Catherine is a very efficient and personable young woman who has a comprehensive knowledge of the real estate market. She handled all aspects of the sale, e.g. advertising, conveyancing requirements and financial settlement with efficiency and absolute professionalism. Catherine was very co-operative and sympathetic to our needs and we valued the fact that that we were informed of every step undertaken. The information she gave us was always accurate and timely and at times ahead of our legal adviser. All inspections were carried out to our satisfaction and we were especially impressed by her suggestions regarding the presentation of the property to prospective buyers.

There was some difficulty with the final details of the sale, such as the cooling-off period and settlement date due to problems that the buyer had with their financial arrangements. However Catherine acted with complete professionalism and steered the process to a timely and satisfactory conclusion, for which we are extremely grateful.

We have no hesitation in recommending Catherine Murphy of First National Epping to anyone intending to buy or sell property. If we decide to buy again in this area, Catherine would be our first choice to handle the transaction on our behalf.
