Client comments

"Now we’re dealing with the easy task of wrestling empty moving boxes in our new house i can reflect on the last 6 weeks of your work leading to the sale of our house in Gipps st Brichgrove. 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."
Robert - Birchgrove
""Rosemary was a pleasure to work with, at all open for inspections she was friendly, knowledgeable and willing to help everyone that attended. I was particularly impressed with the level of respect she had for everyone that walked into the apartment. During the purchasing process she was highly transparent, knowledgeable and eager to assist at any time. It has been wonderful working with her and I would do so again in the future.""
Amy - Ryde
"Rosemary is a dedicated professional who is an absolute pleasure to engage with. She responded to our requests very quickly, no matter how small, and worked diligently to achieve customer delight. She took a lot of the stress associated with selling away and made the process as painless as possible."
Mark - Balmain
"I recently sold my property with Matthew Hayson & Rosemary Chen. Prior to placing the home on the market, Rosemary was key to ensuring my property was well presented to prospective buyers’ tastes. During the sale process, both Matthew and Rosemary regularly informed me of progress with the sale process. After a short time on the market, they were able to secure a purchaser and achieved a great result in a difficult market. I would be happy to recommend them to anyone selling their home."
Meredith - Balmain
"My interactions with Rosemary Chen have been very positive and I believe her calm and confident manner helped me in finding my own calm in the stressful business of purchasing a property. She has been open and forthcoming in all our communications, willing to give me the time I needed and information necessary to make the decisions that were right for me."
Janine - Lilyfield
"Rosemary was thoroughly professional with a friendly and approachable manner throughout the inspecting and purchasing process. I would recommend her highly from both a purchaser and vendors perspective."
Scott - Balmain
"We would like to personally thank Matthew Hayson and Rosemary Chen for the hard work they put in whilst selling our home in Birchgrove. 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."
Peter & Trish Bray
"Rosemary is delightful, with high integrity and highly organised. Her communication style is faultless and she is extremely responsive and professional and so easy to work with. I have already recommended her to others without hesitation."
Jodie - Birchgrove
"Rosemary worked along side Matt Hayson in the marketing & recent sale of our home, and was fantastic in communicating the progress of the campaign. Cobden Hayson deserve their reputation as the best agents on the peninsula & I wouldn't use anyone else. Highly recommend."
Julie - Balmain
"We felt confident that we'd found the perfect agent to sell our house from the very first phone call with Rosemary Chen from Cobden Hayson Real Estate. Rosemary's appraisal of the house, coupled with her exceptional local knowledge of recent sales and the area in general, set us up for a flawless campaign which was reflected by a very strong pool of buyers and an outstanding selling price. Her regular and informative updates throughout the process kept us in the loop from start to finish. No issues raised or questions were too much trouble for her. It is without hesitation that we would recommend Rosemary to any potential vendors for her highly professional and friendly service."
Paul & Karin - Birchgrove
"Rosemary recently sold my house and would recommend her (and CobdenHayson) to anyone doing the same. Having dealt with other agents in the past who failed to impress, Rosemary was everything that is expected, being professional and genuine. In summary a very positive experience. "
Steven - Birchgrove
"Rosemary and her team at Cobden and Hayson were amazing when we sold our house in Balmain. We knew they were pretty good as we had used them for renting the property for the last 20 years and during that period they were instrumental in carrying out a kitchen bathroom renovation, but they took it to the next level when it came to the sale. They had the house ready for sale in 2 weeks. This included internal and external painting, sanding the floors, employing a first class stylist and then getting the marketing campaign up and going. Pretty smooth work. Once the property was on the market the state of play was clearly and regularly conveyed to us and we achieved a far greater result than we had hoped for. You can trust in these guys and know that you have the best team on your side."
Denise & Gavin - Balmain
"To Rosemary, Sam, Matt & the rest of the C&H Balmain team, My heartfelt gratitude for your guidance & support during our recent auction. This wasn't purely the sale of a house. This was my brother, sister & I's family home. It's where we, including mum & dad, grew up and where we called home. Everyone's sincerity & compassion was exemplary. On behalf of us all THANK YOU."
Barry - Rozelle
"We have had the pleasure of buying our first Sydney property with Rosemary and the team from Cobden and Hayson and we could not recommend them more highly! Rosemary has been incredibly diligent and always available to answer questions/solve any issues. Her manner is so calm and positive which we found very re-assuring. We really appreciated Rosemary's honesty and commitment to achieving the best result, both for us as the buyers, and for her vendor. Thanks so much, Rosie!"
Matt & Pip - Balmain
"My partner and I have been looking to purchase a home in the Balmain/ Rozelle area since late last year, and subsequently have met many of the agents working in the area. Although we did not end up buying a property through your agency I wanted to give you feedback on one of your team, Rosemary Chen. Without exception, Rosemary was the most pleasant, enthusiastic, engaging, professional and customer focused Agent we met. It was always a pleasure speaking with her or meeting her at open homes. We always felt she was truly listening to what we were actually saying or asking. At no time did we ever feel pressured or patronised by her as we did with some other agents from other Agencies in the area. As I mentioned, although we did not purchase from Cobden & Hayson we would not hesitate to recommend Rosemary to anybody who was buying or selling in the Balmain/Rozelle area. "
Peter
"We found Rosemary Chen from Cobden & Hayson Balmain to be professional from our initial discussions through to the sale of our property. Rosemary builds relationships based on honesty and integrity. We were kept informed throughout the sale process, and Rosemary's sales strategy led to a very positive outcome for us. We would highly recommend Rosemary and will definitely use her again for any real estate sale or purchase in the area."
Louise - Rozelle
"We don't have enough nice words to say about Rosemary. Selling our property was stress free due to having Rosemary as our agent. Rosemary is professional as they come, with outstanding communication, she kept us up to date from the moment we discussed potentially selling our home till we exchanged contracts. Her honesty and integrity throughout the process gave us great comfort and we were very happy to leave everything in her capable hands. She sold our property off market within a week, and we couldn't be happier with the final result. Furthermore she has been super helpful in trying to help us find our new home. Highly recommend her for anyone looking for an agent. "
Chantel - 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. "
Maree and Peter Thomas - Balmain
"Thanks so much for your assistance in selling 20 North St Balmain The result was outstanding and your contribution was paramount in achieving this result. I found you to be very professional, and appreciate your attention to detail. You were always highly organised and went out of your way in every aspect of managing things. Every open was professionally run, no problem too great and you helped out where I needed help well beyond what would have been expected. Excellent result, it exceeded my original expectations it was a worry free process for me and a very pleasant experience. Job well done."
Mathew
"To put it simply, Rosie is a joy to work with. She was the agent of a property we bought a couple of years ago and the experience was so good that we knew we'd be doing business together again. We recently decided to sell a property and didn't think twice, we called Rosie who kindly accepted to help us. The whole process was very smooth and she was really responsive and helpful along the way. Not surprisingly we had a great experience again, and I'm sure the buyers did too. Thanks, Rosie."
