Client comments

"Benjamin understood the market very well, he assisted in preparing the property for marketing and managed the campaign very well. He provided feedback throughout the process and obtained an excellent outcome in a very short period of time. Living out of the area and having the property in such good hands was very valued. "
Ninu - Rozelle
"My partner and I had a great experience buying our first home through Ben. Ben was very transparent throughout the entire process which I believe is a standard that sets him apart from other agents in the market. It was clear that he worked in both parties best interest and what he told us from the moment we first spoke turned out to be exactly what would happen. Upon agreeing a price Ben worked tirelessly into the evening to make things happen very quickly as we were under time constraints. Overall a fantastic experience with a great agent."
Sam - Woollahra
"We had been looking for a property in the inner west without much success. Benjamin called me after a colleague of his whom I had been dealing with, Ada, passed on our details about a new listing. We had been stressing before hand as the market had changed quite a bit, but thanks to the team of Ada, Ben and Chad our property search is now thankfully over as we were successful in purchasing the property. Going through the purchase process too was so easy for us. We are delighted. The property is in an area that we don’t know very well, and after chatting to Ben about this, he emailed us lists of places to eat, parks to visit, local shops and general things to do in the area. The whole team have been fantastic, friendly and so helpful. We would not have achieved our goals if it hadn’t been for this team. "
Jackie & Rich - Chiswick
"I couldn’t be happier with our experience from Ben. I have never met a more thorough, hard working, professional and incredibly friendly agent. Ben truly went above and beyond for us. During a tricky time in the market Ben exceeded all our expectations and didn’t just rely on any one type of sales method. I would recommend him to anyone."
Andrew - Balmain
"It has been more than a pleasure having Ben sell my property. As a first time seller the journey was new and Ben was clear and transparent with every step of the way. His level of communication is phenomenal and a great rapport was built with him over the campaign period. He is affable and a great articulator. He achieved a good result for my apartment and treated it the property and sale as if it were his own. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Ben. "
Bella - Edgecliff
"We had considered other real estate agents to represent us for the sale of the property but Benjamin and Samantha became our best choice,a choice that was in fact the best. We have bought and sold many properties, on this occasion Benjamin is the best agent we have ever had, every detail was covered, his communication was immediate and the service exceeded excellent. We are very happy with the result."
Robert & Ann - Rozelle
"Ben was a real pleasure to deal with. I am a first home buyer and he was very patient, helpful and understanding throughout the whole process. He made what was quite a nervous and stressful time extremely easy. I appreciate all of his help."
Bridget - Rozelle
"This is literally the first review I have ever written but feel compelled to tell our family story, as a way of helping others, when deciding on which agent to choose. Unfortunately after losing our mother and father this year, in close succession, we had to sell two seperate deceased estates, with two different agents and our experiences couldn’t have been more contrasting. We chose Ben to sell our fathers home and we chose another local agent to sell our mothers home, at the same time. We could not have been more happy with Ben. He was a complete professional, who guided us through the process and shielded us from a lot of the stress and irrelevant data, which really only adds to an already complex experience. He communicated in a clear and concise manner, without bombarding us with numbers and stats. He listened attentively to our wishes and needs, instead of talking over us and ignoring our concerns. The biggest and most important financial difference with the other local agent was that Ben was right on the money with his PRICE RANGE. Unfortunately when we chose the other local agent, we fell for the oldest trick in the book of going with the highest price range and this was our biggest mistake. I haven’t written this review to personally attack the other local agent, hence why I have not mentioned their name but I’ve done this as a warning to others, don’t make the same mistake we made. The other local agent was approximately 20% outside the final sale price and had to drop the price guide by $500,000 in the first week! We trusted her through the process and as a family, feel somewhat deflated and disappointed in the final price and process. We wished we had used Ben for both sales and feel very confident that we would have received a better price, if we had. We feel Ben is the agent you need, in a tricky market. He is diligent, works hard and is simply more honest and transparent. If you choose Ben as your agent, you won’t be disappointed. "
Brad - Ultimo
"We first met Benjamin in 2013 when we were looking for our house as he was the agent for many of the open homes we visited. The house we ended up buying was through another agent but despite this we continued to build a relationship with Benjamin over the years and we always knew that when the time would come to sell, he would be our guy. From the initial meeting we knew we had made the right choice. Ben's deep knowledge of the real estate market and his incredible dedication to his clients is outstanding. We actually felt that ours was the only property he was working on! Throughout the process Ben remained in constant contact going above and beyond with updates, reports, market updates and strategy suggestions. In such a complicated time for real estate, we never doubted even for a second that we would get a great result - and we did, after only a few weeks on the market. Honestly, we cannot speak more highly of Ben and have actually enjoyed the experience (we have sold a number of times previously and have never been able to say that!). We are clients for life now!"
Cathy - Balmain
"Ben is an really experienced and professional agent. Ben always replied msg ASAP and provided good advice about the property. Also I really appreciate about his help with everything and great communication throughout the process with my best price. It’s an awesome experience."
Theo - Rozelle
"As a buyer I experienced firsthand how hard Ben works to get the best possible price for his seller. But Ben also works incredibly hard to make sure the buyer is nonetheless happy with their experience. He is incredibly professional, highly responsive, uniquely thoughtful and always willing to provide insightful industry knowledge. If you are looking for an agent who goes above and beyond, you are looking for Ben."
Julie
"From the start Benjamin was very open and transparent on the steps needed to close the deal, and make the buying process as easy as possible, especially for a first time homebuyer. Even more importantly was his clear and quick communication in answering questions after the deal closed, where he went far beyond his role in assisting in various manners. Benjamin genuinely cares about customer satisfaction, trustworthy, and someone I would highly recommend."
Mike - Paddington
"Benjamin was an absolute pleasure to deal with during the preparation and sale of my property. He made the whole process so easy and we achieved a fantastic outcome. Highly recommend!"
Danielle - Balmain
"Ben and Chad were great to work with from the first meeting, informing us of the current market conditions and expectations, to guiding us through the process to prepare the property for sale and setting up open homes. When a potential buyer was identified, negotiations were completed in a prompt manner with great communication throughout the process with a great price in the end. I would definitely recommend working with these guys."
Val & Lisa - Chiswick
"Ben Martin was extremely helpful in guiding us through on our journey from initial inspections to property purchase. He was upfront and honest with all questions we had regarding the property and showed transparency throughout the process. We are thrilled with the purchase of our new home and would recommend Ben as an agent to anyone!"
Laura - Lilyfield
"Ben successfully sold my one bedroom apartment in Balmain for a good price in this market. Ben has excellent communication skills and is genuinely passionate about real estate and getting a fantastic result for his clients. Ben always kept me informed so I felt empowered to make decisions, and I also relied on his professional knowledge and skills. He goes above and beyond his role and cares about the details. The final sale process was extremely smooth and easy for me. I highly recommend Ben and am thankful for a great result."
Cara - Balmain
"Wonderful end result and consistent communication I was living overseas when the time came to sell our previous family property. Ben was our man on the ground. His great commitment to communication and his attention to detail made the process so much easier than it might otherwise have been. We trusted his personal touch and he surpassed our expectations."
Justin - Lilyfield
"I am so happy with the help of Jodie and Ben at CobdenHayson. Best real estate agents. A great team there to help you sell and buy."
Jim - Rozelle
"Ben has gone over and above to help my partner and I find our perfect home. I felt very confident in his knowledge and expertise. Ben was extremely easy to communicate with. Thanks Ben for all of your help!"
Krystle - Five Dock
"Ben did a great job selling my property in record time for the desired result. He was friendly, professional and knowledgeable of the market and willing to assist with whatever I needed. Ben provided me with good advice and support during the whole process. He kept me updated all the way and made the whole process of selling seamless and less stressful for me."
Marilyn - Rozelle
" Ben was easy to work with. Straight shooter without over promising. We were really happy with the result. It is always a difficult time selling and buying. His demeanour and professionalism was reliable. Hope to work with him again. Happy to recommend him. Would not hesitate."
Liza - Ultimo
"Benjamin was really communicative and transparent during the entire process and was readily available for any questions or concerns. Will go through him in the future, without a doubt."
Leo - Balmain
"I cannot recommend Benjamin Martin from CobdenHayson highly enough. Benjamin recently sold my apartment in Bondi Junction in just 7 days, which was an incredible result. Not only did he exceed his initial price estimate, but he also managed to identify two committed buyers who were willing to pay above what we had anticipated. As someone who has lived in the Eastern Suburbs for over 50 years and bought and sold many times, I have dealt with a fair share of real estate agents. I can honestly say that Benjamin's transparency, advice, and hard work was refreshing. What impressed me most about Benjamin was his focus on building trust and his ability to deliver. In a market where many agents tend to overpromise on price, Benjamin's approach ultimately led to a fantastic outcome for us. At a time when several competing properties were reducing their price guides, Benjamin's expertise and hard work helped us to achieve a price that was higher than we expected. If you're thinking of selling your home or investment, I have no hesitation in recommending Benjamin Martin. He's a true professional, and I'm grateful for everything he did to help us achieve a sale in such a short time. Thank you, Benjamin!"
Alfredo - Bondi Junction
"I can't rate Ben highly enough. This is the second time we have used him (with two difficult properties) and we will definitely use him again. He works so hard, communicates with you constantly and just feels really genuine."
Anna - Rozelle
"Lots of communication, follows the guidelines within Real Estate, likes to keep you informed, doesn't pressure and gives you different scenarios towards your Sales Campaign. Overall an absolute delight to work with and I am grateful I chose him as a Real Estate Agent to sell my property. Thank you Ben, amazing work my friend! Take care, and all the best for your endeavours in the future. Very genuine. Lovely Bloke."
George - Lewisham
"We would like to take this opportunity to thank Samantha and Ben for their professional approach to the sale of our house in Rozelle. Their service and feed ack to us was outstanding, and the process was made less stressful by their enthusiasm to get a positive result."
Norman - Rozelle
"Very honest in all the discussions we had on site! Very punctual in returning calls, being on time for site meetings. Highly satisfied all round. Wish to do more business and get his thoughts on his area expertise prior to and during my construction period."
Carmelo - Balmain East
"Benjamin came highly recommended as potential candidate to sell my property in Russell Lea as an alternative to local agents which I entertained. I ultimately decided to appoint Benjamin because of his and energetic approach and his strong understanding of the market. Another factor was the idea that he and his agency had access to buyers that were looking in other inner west suburbs that could be interested in my property. The ultimate outcome was that Benjamin delivered a result that was far beyond my expectation and the buyer was from outside the local area. The campaign process was run in a professional manner and I found that I was receiving live data throughout the 5 week marketing period which he decided to cut short given his confidence around securing a strong result and coupled with pending interest rate rises which was on the money. "
George - Russell Lea
"Benjamin has been quite patient with my needs,especially while I was overseas.He 's also diligent in making sure the inspection was in place, communicated with my rental agent, and kept me informed. Benjamin 's can-do spirit, promptness, sound knowledge of the current market, kindness, and good energy made my overseas purchase process simple . When I am looking to buy again I will not hesitate to contact Benjamin Martin. "
Julia - Zetland
"Dealing with Benjamin for the purchase of this property was a delight. Benjamin was knowldgeable about what was going on in the market in the local area, was professional and polite. The whole process was incredibly easy. Would highly recommend Benjamin to anyone looking for an agent."
Raelene - Balmain
"I wanted to express my utmost gratitude for the outstanding service and support Ben provided throughout the process of selling my property in Balmain. Ben’s dedication, professionalism, and expertise truly made a significant difference, and I couldn't be happier with the results. From our initial meeting to the final closing, Ben consistently demonstrated a deep understanding of the real estate market. His knowledge of the local area and recent trends allowed me to set a competitive and realistic asking price, attracting potential buyers while ensuring that I received the best value for my property. Ben’s tireless efforts in marketing my property were evident, and I was genuinely impressed by the attention to detail in the listing, the beautiful photographs, and the compelling description that showcased the property's unique features. Ben’s marketing strategies helped generate significant interest, resulting in a quick sale that exceeded my expectations. Beyond his expertise, Ben’s exceptional communication skills that truly stood out. He kept me informed at every step of the selling process, promptly answering all my questions and addressing any concerns I had. I always felt like a priority and valued client, and his responsiveness and approachability made this journey stress-free and enjoyable. Furthermore, Ben’s negotiation skills were top-notch, and I felt confident leaving this aspect in your capable hands. His ability to navigate through offers and counteroffers ensured that we secured the best deal possible, and I am thrilled with the final selling price. I genuinely appreciate Ben’s professionalism, honesty, and dedication throughout this entire process. He is not only helped me sell my property, but he also made the experience a positive one. I can wholeheartedly recommend Ben’s services to anyone looking to buy or sell a property, as I have no doubt that you will be as satisfied and pleased with Ben’s services as I am."

Gemma - Lewisham
"Ben assisted us with the sale of a Lower North Shore investment property and helped us to achieve a record price for the block. Throughout the campaign, we were kept informed and provided with tailored market insights. This was not only a pleasant experience for us but for the purchasers too. Highly recommended. Thank you, Ben!"
Frank - Lane Cove
"Cobden and Hayson had sold a previous property for us and were currently managing this particular unit from a rental basis. On deciding to sell Ben was recommended to us. From day one Ben's approach was courteous and straight forward. He went above and beyond as to what we expected and although market conditions became somewhat difficult due to steady interest rate rises Ben remained committed to the task at hand and always remained positive. An excellent result was achieved with a sale above our expectations. Ben is honest and a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend Ben as an agent to sell any property in any area."
Neil - Zetland
"Ben was an absolute pleasure to work with. He has both a professional yet down to earth and approachable demeanour. He made the otherwise daunting process of buying a first home a smooth, easy and exciting experience! His extensive knowledge of the market is apparent and provided valuable advice and guidance throughout the process. A wonderful first home buyer experience!"
Alexandra - Lane Cove
"Benjamin was a diligent agent with excellent communication who worked consistently to get the best deal for both parties. He put in a tremendous amount of time to ensure the property was right for me and was caring in his approach when discussing prices. Ben was open and responded promptly to all inquiries and offered significant personal and professional expertise throughout the purchase process. I will be returning to Ben for future rental and purchase inquiries."
