Client comments

"Many thanks for the email and all you did to make the sale such a big success. You did the hard work, the credit is all yours. All we did was choose the best Real Estate Agent. "
Mark Secombe - Balmain
"I would like to express my appreciation of the efforts Samantha Elvy and the rest of the Cobden & Hayson team put into selling my house recently. There was no pretence, lies nor a hard sell, just an honest approach, with no false promises. I found Samantha to be a woman of great personal integrity and determination, taking pride in delivering an exemplary service. During a somewhat stressful time where the market was in downturn, Samantha made it easier with great support, local knowledge, service and availability. Especially of note were the extras provided, such as advice on presentation and provision of staging, alternative promotion and sales ideas, thinking outside the box with alternative ideas, etc. Going the extra mile meant a great deal to me. I highly recommend Samantha and Cobden & Hayson."
Kerry - Birchgrove
"Thank you for your excellent and professional service in the recent sale of our home in Balmain. The result you've delivered was outstanding, even more so in light of the challenging times that emerged around the sale due to the impacts of Coronavirus on the property market. Our property was sold quickly and efficiently, off-market after many years of consistent tenancy management by CH (thank you also, Leigh). Samantha, we believe that our access to your clear strategic thinking and strong network of qualified and motivated local prospective purchasers really made the difference in our sale."
Karen - Balmain
"We have had the pleasure of both buying and selling with Sam. On both occasions her knowledge, communication and professionalism has been outstanding. We found Sam to be reliable, committed and honest."
Pam - Birchgrove
"Just a short note before we go to thank you so much for your efficiency and good humour in selling our place in a week. You were a joy to deal with and achieved a price well beyond our expectation. We would not have believed we are flying back to England 9 days after meeting you with the deal signed and sealed. Many thanks from us both."
Geoff and Sarah - Balmain
"We just wanted to say thank you again for the sale of our house. We really believe you got a fantastic price for our house. Thanks again we couldn’t be happier with the result."
Louise - Balmain
"“Sam offered us several sale options in a mature and relaxing manner. We were kept fully informed and consulted at each stage. She made, what could have been for us, a stressful process, simple, quick and very easy. Her expertise was obvious from the start and her access to the right buyers produced an excellent result. "
Paul & Gabrielle - Balmain East
"Thanks for your help in navigating a difficult and emotional situation. Although we were sad to see the house go, you managed the situation with empathy and professionalism which ultimately resulted in a great outcome. Juliet and I felt that you kept us well informed throughout the sale process, and we trusted your judgement at crucial points. All the best in the future. "
Britt – Balmain
"It was great to have someone that was not only an excellent agent, but a pleasure to deal with and fun as well! We’ll be recommending you to anyone who cares to listen."
Stuart - Balmain East
"After recently selling our home through Cobden and Hayson, I would highly recommend Samantha Elvy. Sam demonstrated an amazing depth of knowledge of the local Balmain property market and was able to give us some incredibly useful tips that allowed us to achieve a credible sale in a competitive market. Sam's persistence, patience and enthusiasm is infectious and admirable and we can't thank her enough for her help in selling our home."
John and Amanda - Balmain
"Sam was outstanding and ensured everything went well from the beginning through to exchange of sale of my Balmain terrace house. Sam is brilliantly in touch with the market and knows what buyers want & expect. Sam handled all executional & administrative issues for me and ensured that I was kept updated every step of the way. Sam is a true professional, a thorough communicator, an energetic & passionate real estate agent who was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend Sam to all."
Jo - Balmain
"My dealings with both Samantha Elvy and Rita Lopresti were of the highest quality. Their professionalism, kindness, openness and honesty in the process have renewed my faith in the real estate industry. They were exceptional in every way and I am extremely grateful to them for going above and beyond to find me my new home. "
Georgie - Rozelle
""Dear Danny, I am writing to say how happy I am that I chose Sam to act as my agent. I picked her initially because of her enthusiasm and larger-than-life presence when some other agents appeared to be phoning it in and she maintained this attitude unfailingly throughout the process. She was the only one to suggest back-selling my property with a minimum of marketing expense and hoopla and, indeed, had it sold within a fortnight. She recommended a terrific gardener and an excellent home stylist and did everything she could to minimise any work or stress to me. I would recommend her to others, in fact I have already done so. "
Frances- Rozelle
"I retained the services of Cobden Hayson to sell my family home in Lawson Street, Balmain, purely to retain the services of Samantha Elvy.I had also, as we are all supposed to do, got two other agencies come through. To be honest, that was just ticking boxes. From the first time i met Samantha I knew that she was the right fit for me and my family. As a single parent, the pressure of raising two teenage girls and life in general, then deciding to sell our house was a lot. From our very first meeting, which felt more like a friend sitting across from me, I felt no pressure. No pressure to sell through Sam, no pressure in signing up. Just priceless advice and she really listened. Listened to my concerns, listened to my questions and then answered what she could and came back to me with ones that she could answer on the spot. Samantha was available to me pretty much around the clock. My calls - which were many - were either answered or returned within moments of me calling. Her support through the process of getting the house ready was amazing. Always encouraging, but also directing me to whats important and what's not. We can get carried away with wanting everything to be "just right". She constantly updated me with prospective purchasers and had a wide reach for buyers that weren't even necessarily looking. The sale was a tremendous success, especially in a tricky economic climate. I would not hesitate to recommend Samantha, as much as i'd like to keep her all to myself, she's too good not to share. "
Vanessa - Balmain
"I have always had a lot of faith in Cobden and Hayson, and I knew as soon as I met you, I knew you were the person I needed to look after the sale for me. I could not have had a better agent! I found you very easy to work with, I trusted your advice and judgement throughout the campaign and always appreciated your clear and open communication. Being overseas for most of the campaign was tricky for me, but you kept me calm and most importantly, your strategy paid off with a successful auction result. I will always highly recommend you to anyone looking for a local agent. "
Louise - Balmain East
"Exceeded all my expectations! Sam made the process of selling my property absolutely seamless. From the moment I met her she made me feel at ease, as though she had my best interests at heart. Sam advised me of the best options for marketing and property enhancements to ensure the best possible outcome for the property all whilst minimising costs. She organised all trades and ensured the work was complete to a high standard. I was kept well informed at every point and best of all Sam secured an exceptional result at the auction. The outcome and process absolutely exceeded my expectations. At all times she was professional, prompt and responsive. It was an absolute pleasure working with such a capable and professional team! Thankyou Sam!"
Ania - Balmain
"Maggie & I are happily ensconced in Taroona Tasmania. We often pause to appreciate what a great job you did for us in selling 3 Reynolds St. Best wishes to you & your family … merry Xmas. "
Rob & Maggie - Balmain
"Samantha was an absolute pleasure to deal with. She followed through on everything she said she would and was very responsive and easy to get in contact with. She displayed high levels of professionalism and integrity and is an excellent communicator. We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have had the pleasure of dealing with her. We strongly recommend working with her. "
