Client comments

"Living outside Sydney, for many years we depended on Nick Arena to supervise all aspects of the rental of our unit. We found that he successfully negotiated installing suitable tenants, responded promptly to repairs and kept us fully informed of current rental rates. When we sold the property, we experienced the same professionalism in negotiating the preparation of the unit for sale and securing an excellent price. As an elderly couple, we appreciated a trust relationship with Nick over the years and were always confident that he both understood and carried out our interests."

Ari - Petersham
"Exceptional Service by Nick Arena. My wife and I have been looking for a property for a few months and I found some agents arrogant and pushy. Not Nick Arena, from our first introduction at the open house Nick presented himself not just in a professional manner but also a genuine agent who wanted the best for the vendor and also for the buyer. He made us feel very relaxed (as relaxed one can be when buying a house) he was always available to discuss the property prior to purchase and we never felt pressure from him. He was by far the best agent we have dealt with during our search for our family home. Even after the contract was signed he continued to go over and above which we greatly appreciated. He also possesses great interpersonal skills and a welcoming friendly demeanor. Thank you!"
Marie - Petersham
"Nicholas is great to deal with. His familiarity with the area and the process really helps driving my purchase. I think he works equally hard for the vendor as our negotiating process does take quite a bit of time, but ultimately a mutually-satisfying one."
Liem - Petersham
"I found Nick to be awesome. I was aware he was working for the vendor but he was open and available for us. The settlement was a debacle for us because of bank delays and Nick was incredibly supportive. It was crazy...This guy knows his stuff, get him to sell your property for sure."
Carolyn - Ashfield

"I'd ever recommend a real estate agent. Nick Arena is professional, highly personable and has a gentleness to him not often associated with the industry. He is a clear communicator, great listener and was a trustworthy adviser when we sold our home. He had excellent contacts to make sure the work that was done to brighten the property for sale was affordable and of the highest quality. It was always a pleasure to speak to Nick and I surprise myself when I say I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. I never thought I'd be a person doing that..."

"If you are looking for an AMAZING Agent look no further. Nick and his team are fantastic and I can't rate them highly enough. They go way above what is expected. Not only did they do the normal run of the mill stuff (daily updates, weekly reports, great photos) for the sale but they managed all my trades for my per sale renovation while I was overseas and managed it in the very tight timeframe I had set. They arranged quotes for the renovation and advised on what the current market was looking for. Nick even managed to find me a last minute gardener who transformed our garden after our tenants left it a complete mess (any one looking a trade in Sydney to do anything without a 2-3 week lead time will know how hard this is). All their hard work paid off with an absolutely amazing sale price well above our expectations. Nick even drove all over Sydney to get the updated signed contracts for us so we could settle early. I would not think twice about recommending Nick and his team to anyone look to sell or for someone to manage their property."
