Client comments

"Excellent team who went above and beyond in a difficult market. Stephanie and Jonathan were a pleasure to work with in the sale of our townhouse. The advertising campaign was beautifully done and consistent with what previously drew us to Cobden & Hayson listings. Steph was instrumental in the process of preparing the property and was there for countless viewings. Whilst the market conditions changed drastically from the time we listed to when we sold they worked tirelessly to achieve the best result for us possible. Their communication was excellent, open and honest. We felt confident and trusted in their abilities to negotiate and advise us in this difficult time. Highly recommend. "
Kim - Stanmore
"Overall - a professional and considered approach. In challenging market conditions, I applaud the support and tenacity of Jonathan, Stephanie and the team to secure a good result. Thank you!"
Wendy - Stanmore
"Jono and Stef make a great team they were extremely punctual and a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend them to anyone selling there home and were extremely committed in getting the sale over the line."
Brain - Stanmore
"I want to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to you and your team. Over the past month you have done a fantastic job getting my house ready for sale and then successfully selling it, which has been so exciting, not sure how I would have done sitting through an auction. We really appreciate all the time and effort that was put in, which got us such a great result."
Gayle - Stanmore
"Selling our house was actually incredibly easy with Jono and his fantastic associate Steph. In particular, we loved that; Jono was realistic with us from the beginning regarding what sale price was achievable. They arranged everything from painters to gardeners to get the house ready to sell quickly. Jono is experienced enough to identify the serious buyers and negotiate hard to get the best possible price for the seller. No request from us was ever too annoying for Steph, she was a fantastic person to be dealing with during a stressful period. In summary we feel like they are a dynamite team and we would recommend them without hesitation. "
Campbell & Emilly - Stanmore
"Very professional agency. Stress free process. Jono and Stephanie provided excellent feedback and communication throughout the process. Great organisation of the best tradies ever!"
Lindy - Newtown
"Regarding the performance of Jonathon and his team - The initial contact with Jonathan was very helpful and his organizing of the final clear-out of the house most appreciated. The photos on the webpage looked good and obviously attracted a lot of interest. His marketing campaign has produced an excellent outcome with a very good price for Susan and she is pleased with the result. "
Robyn - Petersham
"Jono was a very nice person to deal with, no pressure and very honest, he did the best for the seller and the buyer, everyone left happy, we have bought and sold a lot of houses over the years and would highly recommend the whole team as a very professional reliable and honest agents. Thank you."
Renee & Richard - Stanmore
"Just a quick email to thank you for everything throughout the sale of 40 Thornley. Your advice and expertise has been so very appreciated and you made the whole process for us a lot less traumatic and unsettling than it could have been. Hard to believe it was only 16 weeks ago we were toying with the idea! Time flies!"
Will and Amber - Leichhardt
"In this dynamic market Jonathan keep our expectations in line with the market, which is vital for a good agent. "
Toby - Stanmore
"Very honest and transparent throughout the whole process. We would certainly recommend Jonathan."
Robert - Stanmore
"Jono and Steph did a great job selling my property in a difficult market. They were determined and got the property sold with a good result. HIGHLY recommend Jono and Steph. They both went way above and beyond, last minute hiccup before settlement and they, in their own time, solved the issue. I am most grateful for their kindness and consideration. Outstanding."
Julie - Stanmore
"Our recent terrace auction was a huge success. Jonathon handled the whole procedure perfectly and seemed to read the market with great accuracy. We followed all the pre-auction advice offered, and with his experience, were ready to open the house to the public. This resulted in large groups attending every open house with contracts 'walking out the door.' We were extremely pleased with the outcome and believe Jonathon did an exceptional job."
Pamela - Newtown
"We loved Jonathan’s enthusiasm and honesty. We would definitely use him again to sell our property. We found that Jonathan has great knowledge and we would recommend him to our family and friends. "
Gracelinda - Stanmore
"Jonathan went out of his way to ensure a successful sale of our property during a challenging time in the market. He was always available to answer our questions and address any concerns. His exceptional knowledge of the local area was of great benefit during the campaign. Overall he conducted a super sale."
Michelle & Trevor - Stanmore
"Just a personal note to say that it is such a relief to see the ‘SOLD’ sign on our old property in Northumberland Ave! It has been a very stressful time for us as we were thinking we’d have to either rent it out – or move back to Sydney. I am most appreciative of all of your hard work with respect to the sale of the property – as is Susan. You have done a fantastic job for us in the face of a down market (with possibly worse to come), and we have both been impressed by the way you handled our stress as well as keeping potential buyers interested – and, keeping us ‘in the loop’ with regular progress updates. A million ‘thanks’ again; we’d never hesitate to recommend you to any prospective buyer or seller."
Vic & Susan - Stanmore
"Great team, great outcome! I decided to sell my property just before the COVID-19 debacle. Jonathan and his colleague, Stephanie, managed to get an amazing price in an unprecedented environment of change and market downturn. I don't know where I would be without them. The styling advice was spot on, advertising well-executed and communication flawless. Five stars."
Cheryl - Lewisham
"I highly recommend Jonathan Hammond and Julie Hatch and their team at Cobden & Hayson Annandale. I was most impressed with their communication skills, friendly manner together with their thorough knowledge of all real estate matters in my area that was most useful in planning the best, most cost-effective strategy for selling my home that achieved the result I was after utilising their excellent negotiation skills. They were able to save us thousands of dollars on marketing by knowing what achieved results and what didn't. I strongly believe that they were committed to achieving for me the best possible outcome and they delivered."
Therese - Stanmore
"Jono ran a great process. He’s got deep local knowledge and it’s clear why he is so well respected in the local community. He kept us informed throughout the campaign and ensured we got the best result. Steph and Jono make a great team and we’d highly recommend them to others considering selling"
Elicia - Stanmore
"Jonathan and his team were very professional from initial contact right through to our final sale. They were always available and responsive throughout the campaign. Jonathan in particular has a superior knowledge of the inner west and will strive to achieve the best result. Would not hesitate to recommend Jonathan and his team. "
Jaclyn - Stanmore
"Very happy with Julie and Jono during the marketing of our house very attentive to our needs and pleasant at all times, we would highly recommend Julie and Jono to anyone wanting to sell their house."
Jane
"I just want to thank you again for all your hard work in selling my property. To sell my property in one open house, for the price I wanted, and more importantly without the stress of an auction has far exceeded my expectations."
Chris Hill - Glebe
"Having engaged Jonathan last year to sell a family asset in Stanmore, which achieved an outstanding result, I contacted Jonathan when I was considering moving back to the Inner West from the Eastern Suburbs. Jonathan had a clear understanding of my requirements, and was aware that I would prefer to purchase off market, to allow me time & flexibility to sell my apartment in Coogee. Jonathan sourced me a house off-market within days of me contacting him. It was the first house we had looked at since considering making our move back, but we immediately knew that it was perfect. Jonathan was able to negotiate a fair sale price, as well as a 3 month settlement, allowing us plenty of time to sell our apartment for the best possible price. Having both purchased from Jono, and sold through Jono, I would have no hesitation in recommending him."
David - Stanmore
"Jono and Steph are a formidable team. We had an excellent experience recently selling our home through them in uncertain conditions. They have extensive knowledge of the Inner West market and were calm, assured and confident from start to finish. Steph had an incredible energy and passion in helping us prepare the house for sale and putting together the optimal marketing. Both of them have a warm and engaging style, building rapport with potential buyers. Jono's communication was honest and timely and we could see how hard he worked to explore every possible option. We trusted his guidance and judgement through the whole sales campaign, especially when it came down to the final negotiations. I would have no hesitation in working with them again in the future."
Veronica & Geoff - Dulwich Hill
"It took me some time to decide on who would be the right agents for the sale of our old family home, so it is with great pleasure I write this recommendation for both Jonathan Hammond and Julie Hatch at Cobden & Hayson. A professional, but friendly, down-to-earth attitude, coupled with a healthy dose of enthusiasm and pride for their work, backed by a sound knowledge of the local area and a breadth of experience in the industry made them initially the right choice to represent our home. They became an even better choice when I experienced the great communication skills they wrapped around all aspects of the sale process. There was always good dialogue around creating an effective plan of works to be done, organising tradesmen and tailoring a marketing plan for maximum reach. I received great ideas and advice and always felt heard and part of the process. This was backed up with great care and prompt attention to all matters at all times. This attention to detail made the process so much easier for me and we achieved a fabulous result on auction day confirming that Jonathan and Julie were not just the right choice or even better choice -- they were the absolute best choice."
Julie - Petersham
"Thank you for all your efforts with the sale of our property and your advice regarding strategy at various stages. Whilst the result was short of what we were initially hoping for, we think on reflection in light of the current market it was a reasonable outcome and much better than what it was looking like after Wednesday. Someone was looking over us last night when that second bidder decided to turn up at the last minute! It was equally terrific to have Damien Cooley as our auctioneer and it was very generous of Tim to give up his time last night to come and meet us also. Thank you from both of us and we wish you success navigating these tricky market conditions."
Adam & Nicole - Stanmore
"Jonathan and Stephanie were fantastic throughout the whole sale process. They provided guidance and useful advice on staging the house to place it in its best possible light. The campaign was a reflection of their unfaltering commitment to deliver the best possible result. You won't find a better and more committed team, I highly recommend them."
Marcus & Pamela - Erskineville
"Mark and I have been wracking our brains trying to figure out how to thank you for getting us through this process. You have been an absolute godsend in every regard. Having seen how most agents operate up close over the last few months, We have so much respect for how you operate. Thank you for being one of the good guys and for working with us above and beyond any reasonable expectations. Mark and I very much appreciate everything you’ve done. And 29b woodland st is amazing. Or will be once we are straight! Thank you for all the advice. And don’t hesitate to call if we can ever assist in any way."
Jessica & Mark - Leichhardt
"Jono has an excellent knowledge of the local market. Communication was good at all times. Jono was easy to work with and understood what we needed. Jono has also been extremely helpful with assisting us look for our new home...."
Kylie - Stanmore
"Professional, Excellent Local Knowledge and Trustworthy We engaged Jonathan and his team to sell our 2 bed Stanmore investment. From start to finish Jono and the team were consummate professionals, instilled instant trust in us, were always available and nothing was ever too much trouble. We felt like they were selling our property with us as their focus, no hidden agendas or motives. Jono and his team being locals to Stanmore, have exceptional local market knowledge which reassured us through the negotiations. We achieved an impressive outcome pre auction for our property, and have faith that the purchasers were handled with respect also, which was important to us. Our experience left us with a strong regard for Jono, and for the team at Cobden & Hayson Annandale."
Louisa & Neill - Stanmore
"The process from start to finish was simple and well managed. We were kept well informed along the way. The photos and marketing looked fantastic. The suggestions on how to prepare the house for sale made a huge difference. We were very happy with the outcome. "
Janelle & Elvio - Enmore
"Jono and Steph were the dynamic duo! Selling our place for a good price during a difficult COVID-19 period. They were always available for my many calls, great communicators, helpful, professional & fun all at the same time."
Jodie - Stanmore
"Jonathan is an excellent agent and so easy to deal with. He keeps you very informed throughout the campaign and works with you through the whole process. He's a genuine person and I have no hesitation highly recommending him."
Adrian - Stanmore
"We chose Jonathon and Julie to represent our property after a period off market with multiple agents. Both were able to manage neighbour relationships which was critical to us and resulted in a smooth campaign. Timely and frank communication was appreciated and always forthcoming and helped us to fine tune our property throughout the campaign."
Lara & James - Stanmore
"It is my absolute pleasure to write this review for Jonathan Hammond and his team. The hardest part of selling your home is finding an agent that you can trust to represent you. My husband and I have bought and sold many, many properties over our lives together and I regret to say had met many terribly arrogant and self-serving agents in the past, some I felt I needed to shower after encountering them. I admit I previously had a poor opinion of real estate agents. We had noticed that Jonathan Hammond from Cobden Hayson had been selling a lot of quality homes in our area and went along to one of his open houses, not to see the house, but to check him out. We watched Jonathan interact with potential buyers; we listened to what he said to them and how people responded to him. What we found was a lovely, warm man who was polite and respectful to all people he encountered and one that conducted himself professionally; this was very important to us. We then and there invited Jonathan to our home with a view to listing our home. Jonathan sat with us and discussed selling our home, he was well prepared for our meeting, had outstanding knowledge of the local market and listened to what we had to say. He provided a realistic and honest appraisal of our homes value and we signed with Jonathan that day, without speaking to any other agents. Jonathan guided us through the whole process of our sale. He introduced us to his lovely associate Stephanie Zerial who was invaluable with helping us prepare our home for sale our and provided the very important woman's touch to the whole process, she was amazing. Jonathan arranged a property stylist to advise us further, Steph arranged the photo session and brochure to showcase our home, and at every step of the process we were consulted. Jonathan arranged for all his sales associates to view our home so we had a large team of professionals working for us. Jonathan sold our home within his predicted and our agreed price range. He provided feedback and progress after each inspection, answered or returned all our calls and we felt advised and in touch at all times. In the fast moving, and ‘dog eat dog’ world of Sydney real estate we found a truly honest, professional man with integrity to sell our much loved home. We would like to thank Jono, Steph and the team at Cobden & Hayson for representing us and achieving an amazing result for us."
