What my clients had to say:
"It must be at least 5 years ago that I first met Scott Thornton when a nearby property was up for auction. Since then without being ‘pushy’ he kept in touch every few months with an understanding of my situation but knowing that I wanted to downsize when the time was right. That time arrived when I fell in love with a semi in Neutral Bay that Scott and The Agency were selling. Within 4 weeks my large Mosman house was advertised and on the market; days later it was sold! The next day I made an offer on the Neutral Bay house. The offer was accepted and Scott negotiated to make settlement dates for each property coincide. To ensure presentation of my home of 23 years was impeccable Scott and Jade acted as stylists and project managers as well as real estate agents and taught this senior citizen the real meaning of ‘decluttering’. I have nothing but praise for Scott, Jade, Erik and not least Jasmine for their friendliness and professionalism and would recommend their team at The Agency unreservedly."

Scott Thornton, from The Agency says:
After 23 happy years living in Cardinal Street, my client, Mrs Russell, decided the time had come to downsize into a smaller home that required less maintenance. First viewing the home, I knew it was something that would be well sought after in the current market with it's unique design and spacious layout. The vaulted ceilings and traditional fireplace were also lovely touches which I felt would appeal to buyers, not to mention the practical location of the home. Together, we got the home 'sale-ready', which included internal painting, landscaping of the gardens, and general touch ups around the home. Following only 8 days live on the market and 28 groups attending to view, the home successfully sold prior to auction. Three stand-out buyers generated the strong competition that lead to a pre-auction sale, resulting in a sale price that exceeded my client's expectations.
