The results you created for us were above expectations and your entire approach was comforting and professional. Thank you. ( magnum of spumante is on order!) From our early discussions about the best sales strategies to the genuine sustained effort and commitment you all put in from start to finish, I’m happy to say to anyone who asks “sell through Cobden and Hayson.” I enjoyed the energy and dedication you all brought. Appreciated your early advice on preparation for sale, thinking how best to position the house in the market and particularly how you all moved skilfully and quickly within the flux that is the current Sydney market. Ultimately leading to a great result that lined up with the purchase of our new home. Obviously your expertise and experience is shining through in a tough market."

We had met with Matthew on several occasions over the last couple of years and we were very impressed with his market knowledge, his energy, his patience and his approachable manner. Then we met Rosemary, with her expertise in the property market, her compassion and what appeared to us, effortless organisational skills they provided us with the amazing combination of a team that was able to provide us with selling our property swiftly, expertly and with minimum disruption to our life in a stressful situation. We would highly recommend any future seller to work with Matthew and Rosemary and will be forever grateful for their help in our decision to sell our house through Cobden and Hayson."

We wouldn’t hesitate to trust Matt with the sale of our home again."
Jaime - Balmain
"We engaged Matt Hayson of Cobden & Hayson to sell our home of 20 years. From the time we interviewed Matt we knew that he was the person who we wanted to entrust with our sale. Matt, at all times, was professional, communicative and very hard-working. The effort he put in, to sell our home and get the outcome we achieved, was truly impressive. Rosemary Chen, who was part of Matt’s team, was a delight to work with, similarly professional, communicative and helpful both during the sale process and since. The rest of the team including the photographer were also professional and attentive. Overall, it was a very satisfactory experience and we could not recommend Matt Hayson more highly."

"Matt sold two properties for us: One when the market was dead in 2012 and the other when the market is buzzing now (April, 2021). He excelled our expectations in both sales with his extraordinary negotiation skills to get the best price for both houses.

His guidance during the journey to the final sale was invaluable and his vibrant and positive nature was an added bonus."
