We have been very pleased by the way Brian and his crew have handled the whole sales process right up to now - we fly to Perth tomorrow. Settlement is on the 26th and Ray White are handling the hand over. We are confident that this will go smoothly to finalise the whole process. Kind regards, June & Don Collins

Selling a house can be a stressful experience and we were very happy we chose Irina Bolshakova. Irina, Brian and the team were dedicated to making the sale of our property go as smoothly as possible. Our house was a difficult property to sell but Irina was always positive and she achieved a great price for us. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome!

Andrew & Karen Humphries - Frenchs Forest

For the record, as the buyers of 49 Cashel Crescent Killarney Heights, Bianca and I found the service provided by you and the team throughout to have been professional, friendly, helpful and proficient. Thank you for making what could have been a challenging and stressful experience so much less so. We look forward to continuing the relationship into the future. All the best Jay & Bianca

Dear Mr Fairweather, May I thank you on conducting the sale, and particularly the auction of my late mother’s home. I would like to document that I believe your auction strategy was superior to my previous experience with other auctioneers. I have sold one property by auction, and bought two by auction, and also sold two properties without proceeding to auction. In particular I note your confidence based on your prior research of the market in the lead up to the auction, enabled you to bolster the vendor’s confidence in management of issues such as the setting of a reserve price and also decisions regarding pre auction negotiations and possible vendor bid options. In particular you seemed confident in a pool of people with whom inevitable variance is natural, and you led the way for both buyers and sellers, knowing the market, as you did, by specific analysis of the pre-auction market for that property. This seemed to be the basis of your confidence, and I would guess, your prior experience in the market in similar auctions of other properties in the area. I am happy to make this testimonial available to you. Best wishes, Michael Branley

Selling your family home is a nerve-wracking business. Brian brought his knowledge and skills to the process so that it was fast and painless. He was willing to help us out in any way we needed and always did so with enthusiasm. In short, he was a pleasure to deal with.

Dear Brian, Stephen and team, Many thanks for all your help selling Mums house. We really appreciate your advice every step of the way, and you gave us very realistic indications of the market in a very honest and straightforward manner. We all felt that you did a great job on the auction day and achieved a price that we were very happy with. I think your experience in the real estate market really shone through at the auction. Many thanks, Pauline Branley

Danny & Sofia Wozniak - Starkey Street, Killarney Heights

Thanks to Irina Bolshakova, Brian Fairweather and the whole team at Ray White Fairweather Group for achieving a great result with the sale of our house. We felt well looked after throughout the whole process, as they went through all of our options and came up with a clear strategy and appropriate marketing plan to make sure that we got the maximum price available in the market - which we did! We had constant feedback, guidance and support in every aspect of the sale and on the actual auction day. After the sale, they also helped us to purchase our next home by guiding us through the negotiations and saving us money on that side as well. This is the second time that we have sold with Irina, Brian and the team and we recommend them to anyone who wants care and attention, plus the experience and diligence that assures they will always get the best price in the market.

Jason & Niki Chapman - Vines Avenue, Forestville

We advertised our home via a private sale for several months with only a moderate response Then, Dennis O'Sullivan and Brian Fairweather from Ray White paid us a visit. We were immediately impressed with their professionalism and their enthusiasm to market our home for sale. Throughout the entire sale period, the Ray White team kept us fully informed with weekly printed reports and useful profiles of interested buyers. They were always punctual with inspections and always ensured the house was left in good order. Brian Fairweather acted as auctioneer and achieved a highly satisfactory price for our home. We couldn't recommend the Ray White team more highly.

Adrian Coleman - 59 York Terrace, Bilgola Plateau

I was instantly impressed with Brian Fairweather's professional highly motivated approach. I found him to be highly capable and very pleasant to deal with though the process. He also was the auctioneer on day and did an excellent job of that also.

Donna Kanellis - 3 Greystones Road, Killarney Heights

Brian Fairweather and his team were professional and efficient. I believe they achieved the best possible sale price for my property.

Brian's friendly, supportive and professional attitude would have anyone recommending him to future clients.

Richard & Billie

Dear Brian, When my wife & I decided to put our Killarney Heights property on the market we wanted the best agent to handle our sale. Your profile in this very specific area is without peer & we had no hesitation in securing your services. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your efforts & securing the sale of our property at a very attractive price. It was a pleasure dealing with you & never once did you make unrealistic promises rather you provided guidance & advice which we followed, culminating in a very quick & successful campaign. You should be rightfully proud of your reputation as it is truly earned. Once again thank you for your efforts & if the time ever arises again when we need your services we will certainly be in contact. Yours faithfully, MARK WEST

Mark West - 22 Athlone Crescent, Killarney Heights

Thanks to the Ray White Fairweather Group for the professional and effective support provided to me in the sale of my Kildare Grove property. From the outset I have been listened to and provided with timely advice and counsel and a resulting very satisfactory sale price. Also, the included support provided in purchasing my new property in Glenmore Park was of great assistance in achieving my objective with that property.

Ray Matterson - 8 Kildare Grove, Killarney Heights

I first spoke to Brian in early 2014 when I needed advice on some building work. Even though I had never met Brian he was extremely helpful and a friend of his called me within 5 mins with advice that solved the issue we had. I met Brian later that year in December, when he came to do an appraisal on our property. I also had another agent do an appraisal, but Brian's genuine down to earth personality won me over instantly. I could also tell after meeting him only once that his extensive knowledge of real estate was going to be the right choice for us. Since day one Brian and his team have been more than helpful, even providing us with detailed property analysis on properties we were looking to purchase. We totally trusted Brian's experience and knowledge and followed his advice very closely. Brian and his team were always professional and helpful. Our campaign went really well with lots positive feed back from buyers. On Auction day there was an amazing response with people waiting in the yard well before the event. Both my husband and I were blown away by the auction, the pace just didn't stop and we could hardly believe the amount just kept going up. We ended up with 235k more than our reserve. We could not be happier with the choice we made to go with Brian and his team from Ray White. The extra money we got has allowed us to buy our dream home in an area we love. Thank you all so much.

Jessica & Brandon Shaw - 1 Karingal Crescent, Frenchs Forest

Brian has strong conviction in his sales process which he explained in an upfront and open manner before the campaign. From the point of view of both buyer and vendor, he handled the communications with the utmost professionalism, taking care to keep expectations in check. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience of working with Brian and would have no hesitation recommending his professional services. Kym and Lucy Graham

Kym Graham - Blarney Avenue, Killarney Heights

I am thrilled with the efforts Brian and his team put into the very successful sale of my property. At the outset Brian compared my house to recent sales in the area and gave me a realistic idea of the market price. Once on the market the team worked fervently to alleviate my stress and to maximise interest in the property. Open Inspections were handled most professionally and I was constantly updated on progress and the different marketing strategies which could be employed. Brian was proactive in communicating with prospective buyers and in the end achieved an excellent price due to his superb negotiating skills. The team was constantly encouraging and optimistic all through the process and I thoroughly recommend them as excellent estate agents in every way. Many many thanks, Catriona Stafford

Brian, Thank you very much for assisting Amelia to achieve the purchase of 62 Bantry Bay Rd. I was very pleased to meet you, and appreciated your friendly candour, and readiness to show me the property at the last moment. I have been buying and selling property since 1970,and have come across many different types of Real Estate agent , and found you to be certainly very amenable and one of the best. If the opportunity ever presents, I will certainly recommend you to prospective clients. Regards, Rob Charlton

Under-promised and over-delivered... advice was very practical and down-to-earth... a great communicator... See their video testimonial at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7Xpk0-1t4M&index=2&list=PLUcorjLJqce8N11FmlWEhZQxFOVdOYzZ0

Vesna and Daryl Crisp - 18 Connemara Avenue, Killarney Heights

Brian provided great advice and support throughout the selling process. He communicated with us each step of the way and was very proactive in keeping us informed. He and his team exceeded our expectations and we would have no hesitation in recommending Brian as someone you could have confidence in to do his best for you. Thanks to Brian, David and Irina

Katrina & Dan Pechar - Lyndale Place, Belrose

Brian and his team did a great job from start to finish. They laid out a comprehensive proposed plan but were happy to adjust on our preferences. Very professional and we felt no stone was left unturned.

Paul & Narelle Walton - Bangar Place, Killarney Heights

I chose them because of their straightforward approach... I was really happy with the result of my auction! I would describe Brian and his team as being a trustworthy team of real estate agents... I felt that they were working for me in the best possible way to sell my home... I felt in the right hands all the way... See Sharleen's video here

Hi Brian I just want to call out how truly impressed I have been with your professionalism and efficiency yesterday to help us purchase 7 Bangar Close Killarney Heights successfully. In that terrible weather, you were driving around to get signatures from all parties and provided timely update to us. In this seller market, the excellent service you provided is truly beyond my expectation. Please accept my sincere thanks to you and your team. I will definitely recommend you to my 'never have cash problem" Chinese friends should they want to purchase property in Northern Beaches Area ;p Regarding rental agreement, could you please advise when we should start get in touch with your property management department? Thank you. Kind Regards Lillian and Benson

Lillian & Benson He - Bangar Close, Killarney Heights

I think the most outstanding thing about selling the home with the team was that it was so easy! I didn't really have to worry about anything apart from keeping the kitchen clean... honest, easy to communicate with and determined... See Bernadette's video here

Bernadette Sheridan - Starkey Street, Forestville

I particularly liked Brian because of his marketing strategy... price above our expectations... See Sandra's video here

Sandra Wright - 124 Starkey Street, Killarney Heights

As a buyer, Brian and his team quickly related to us and our needs. In a sellers market Brian made finding the right home easier than any other agents we dealt with. They listened, were extremely helpful, friendly, but most importantly, they were open, transparent and made us feel comfortable and confident throughout the entire process. Put it this way, the next house we buy or sell, Brian and his team will be the first agents we call.

Nick Errey - Maxwell Parade, Frenchs Forest

When I decided to sell my townhouse, I noted that Brian Fairweather sold about 99% of the houses for sale, in Killarney Heights. I was confident he would sell mine too and he did in 2 weeks. I was always kept well informed of visitors showing interest in my property and received feedback of their opinions. I found Brian and his team to be friendly, responsible and very knowledgeable re the property market. I would gladly recommend Brian to my friends and relations. Many thanks Brian.

Marilyn James - Starkey St, Killarney Heights

Brian and his team did a great job at every step of selling our house. We were able to receive the amount we hoped to get, the house was sold in the time we needed, and the transaction was easy. The best part of working with Brian was his understanding of the market along with his willingness to coach us in our search for a new house. Regardless if it was his listing or not. I'm somewhat a particular person and the small things go a long way, such as always being available to answer the phone or at least call back quickly, willingness to adjust our approach, give straight feedback, and make changes. Brian covered it all. Thanks!

Christian Dorau - Nalya Road, Narraweena

Best real estate we have ever dealt with: We were both highly impressed with the service of Brian and his team. Very slick and professional. Best negotiation skills I have ever seen. Would have no issue in recommending Brian and his team. Regards, Peter Scott See his video testimonial here

Peter & Jacqui Scott - Starkey Street, Killarney Heights

Brian is enthusiastic, friendly and knows how to promote a property for a quick easy sale.

Christine & Hayden Smith - 8 Maitland Avenue, Davidson

As for the satisfaction with the way that the sale was handled I can honestly say that I am MORE THAN SATISFIED. I am still happy with Brian handling the sale for me so efficiently and being very helpful in every way. So, THANK YOU, THANK YOU BRIAN, in my eyes (and I was in business with my husband) you are the best and the top. The ever thankful Judy Dlask

Judy Dlask - Russet Place, Darley Street, Forestville

I could list many reasons why We are very happy, but to cut to the chase and to highlight one key outcome our sale made it into the top 1% of all Killarney Heights sales, period. While you certainly exceeded our expectations, you were never unrealistic in managing this final outcome.

Stephen & Henrietta Miller - Killarney Drive, Killarney Heights

Thank you for your professional services during the sale of our home. Brian Fairweather's reading of the market proved to be accurate and enabled us to make the correct decisions concerning the sale of the house, leading to a sale within our time frame at a price that met our expectations. During the campaign staff members provided a high level of information regarding inspections and the conduct of all staff was exemplary. The team conveyed their excitement at selling our house and shone when it counted most - on auction day. Thanks guys. Regards, Stacey

Stacey Lighton - Greystones Road, Killarney Heights

We wanted to thank you and your team for the excellent service you gave for the sale of our family home of over 45 years, in Killarney Heights. Throughout the process your professionalism, knowledge of your business and the market, and attention to detail resulted in a very expeditious and satisfactory sale. The market advice you gave was accurate, and the recommendations on the pre-sale activities required along with the assistance from yourself and your team with those activities, facilitated the speediness of the process, and maximised the result. We would not hesitate to both call on you for future sales or recommend you to others.

Mr & Mrs Middleton - Roseville Chase

Both of you (Brian and David) have provided exceptional service to me and to Sophie in regard to purchasing the house at 7 Curra Close. I especially appreciate your assistance to resolve the settlement issue. We are still making renovations and improvements, but the house is feeling comfortable and more like our home. Kind regards, Lynn

Lynnette C - Frenchs Forest

After meeting with a number of Real Estate Agencies, we decided to put our trust in Brian Fairweather. As soon as we met Brian and David, we felt a sense of trust, sincerity, professionalism and enthusiasm. It didn't take us long to know that Brian and his team would be the best suited agency to sell our home. Brian and David were always upfront, honest, courteous, efficient and very passionate about meeting our expectations. Brian's intimate local knowledge and extensive database meant that he always had his finger on the pulse of Killarney Heights. Furthermore, we were kept well informed on the markets opinion of our property by way of detailed weekly reports. This allowed us to make an informed decision when the time came to accept an offer on our property. Even after having exchanged on our property, we still continued to receive generous support from Brian and his team. Brian kindly provided us with up to date market information on a property we were interested in purchasing and was more than happy to negotiate with the real estate agent on our behalf. Brian did not expect payment for his troubles which is a true testament of his honest work ethic. We can honestly say that selling our home was a positive experience and would certainly have no hesitation whatsoever recommending Brian and his wonderful team to our family and friends. Thank you so much! See Sonia's video here

Andrew and Sonia Rahme - 7 Wilde Ave, Killarney Heights

Living overseas and having an innate suspicion when it comes to Real Estate agents, I was more than nervous about having to sell our house in Australia. I had spoken to several Real Estate agents and it had done nothing to quell my fears. Lets face it when it comes to trusting sales professionals, Real Estate agents are not usually that high on the list, right? Then I spoke to Brian Fairweather. And just like the others, he's a fast talker, he has the whole spiel down pat but the difference being, Brian is also a good listener. He makes a great effort to understand his customer. Brian really understands what makes a "good" sale. By that I mean a sale when not just he, but everyone is happy with the result. I am not suggesting he doesn't use sales tactics, he definitely has his smoke and mirrors, but his attention to detail and professional approach is what sets him apart. You are made to feel that yours is the only house he is selling and that he has left no stone unturned. I was impressed and that, being a sales professional myself, is a hard task. Brian Fairweather I commend you on the swift, no nonsense sale of our dearly loved house. I have nothing but praise, I would even go as far to say the sale was flawless! We are very happy that yet another family will grow up in this very happy home. P.s I would also like to thank Irina and David for their great work at the property.

Charles Destree & Samantha Favaloro-Destree - Wellman Road, Forestville

Brian provided a highly personalised and professional service before, during and after the sale of our family home. He was always available to provide advice and guidance about the sale process, and achieved a great outcome for us in a very short timeframe. Couldn't recommend Brian and his team highly enough.

Jennifer and Colin Davies - Ballyshannon Road, Killarney Heights

Brian Fairweather is, without doubt, one of the finest real estate agents in the area. As our house was our biggest asset it was important to find an agent that we trusted. Brian's professionalism and conscientiousness really helped make the difficult experience of selling a house much easier. The "after inspection discussions" on Wednesday afternoons were important for vital feedback and filled us in with necessary information on the house's faults and assets. Brian was always easy to contact and most knowledgeable in all areas. Brian dealt with all people involved in a calm and sincere manner. We would highly recommend his service and reliability to any person wanting to sell. One can be assured of excellent service and a selling experience as stress free as possible.

Jack and Wendy Turner - Blackbutts Road, Frenchs Forest

(From an overseas vendor): What can I say?? On behalf of Charles and myself I would like to say thank you and also congratulate you on such a fantastic result! We are of course extremely happy not only with the figure, but that a family is going to live in the house that we love. That house has a very special place in our hearts and that is why I was so nervous about it. I know they will be very happy there, it's a happy house. Please also give my thanks to Irina and David for their great work. Now if you could just come over to The Netherlands and organise the health system like you organised the sale that would be good.

Samantha Favolo-Destree - Wellman Road, Forestville

A multitude of promises, all professionally delivered... Brian has a unique, refreshing "can do" attitude, with the expertise to back it up. Thrilled to bits with the results and thoroughly recommend him. Thank you...

Heather & Pete Lynn - Rabbett Street, Frenchs Forest

Thanks Brian! Feels good to have it all sorted. Thanks for your help. Lucinda and I have been impressed with your service and honesty during this transaction. We would not hesitate in recommending you to others when they need to sell.

Michael & Lucinda Coupe - Melwood Avenue, Killarney Heights

Dear Brian, The boxes are almost unpacked, the Ikea furniture is in place and the dog appears settled in so its time for me to write and thank you for the service you provided over the sale of my house. As you are aware, this was not my first attempt to sell the house and I was wary of previous failures to sell and told you from the outset what my expectations were. Brian you always listened to what I had to say and I always felt that I could trust you and your suggestions and advice. I liked the way you gave a regular report on how many people had seen my house, what they thought about it and importantly what they thought it was worth. I thought this was a sound way to read the current market and keep realistic. Although selling a home is a stressful experience, you helped me considerably by your support, communication and by ultimately finding me a buyer! I would highly recommend you to anyone who asks whether I was satisfied. Thanks again for your good humour and genuine service. Kind regards, Sally

Sally van den Bok - Aldinga Place, Forestville

As inexperienced buyers at auction, we found Brian Fairweather, from Ray White to be very helpful throughout the process. Brian was a great help answering all our questions either by phone or email with step by step guides. We can't believe we bought the house at our first auction within our budget! Thank you.

Matthew & Susanna Sharp - Brown Street, Forestville

Brian is the best agent I have dealt with during my search for a home. He is very knowledgeable and professional, a very hard worker answering emails late at night, often doing more than his call of duty. He never once pushed back on any of my questions or requests which others had shrugged off with a "I don't know". I am sure I was not an easy buyer to deal with...but Brian was very patient. It is refreshing to see someone who works so diligently to make the deal come through.... I saw that he used many strategies to sell that others did not. He also kept pushing to keep the momentum going. It is no wonder he is able to close so many deals. If I had been the vendor, I would be happy to know that Brian does everything in his power to get the house sold for the best price. I was always cautious and suspicious in my dealings with real estate agents, but I found Brian to be trustworthy... Although some agents could be even outright rude to buyers, I found Brian to be always sincere and friendly. I was very pleased that in the end Brian had the house that I liked because I don't know if I would have been able to close such a large deal with any other agent. With so much money at stake, Brian made negotiation and a stressful situation actually fun. Thank you Brian. We love our new home and if ever we need to sell it, you will most definitely be the one to do so!

Takeko Shefts - Blarney Ave, Killarney Heights

Earlier this year we successfully sold our house in Killarney Heights with the assistance of Brian Fairweather of Ray White R/E. His negotiating skills produced an unusual result, in that both the buyer and the seller were happy with the deal he hammered out. Indeed, we and the buyer agreed that we would both make use of Brian's expertise in future transactions when our roles would be reversed. His attention to detail and pro-active non-stop support through the process helped ease us through a demanding period, and we have no hesitation in recommending Brian to anyone in need of an estate agent who really understands the market and the art of the deal.

Noel & Maria Quinlan - Kildare Grove, Killarney Heights

It was a pleasure dealing with the professional sales person that we had in Brian Fairweather. We dealt with Brian over an extended period, our first communications even before we landed in Australia. All through the process Brian showed his knowledge of the market and was a tremendous source of information. Brian's professional approach and market knowledge culminated in him contacting us to view a home that had not yet come to market - he had a clear understanding of what we were looking for. From the time we expressed interest in buying in the area, Brian worked tirelessly to find us what we wanted and showed great skill in closing the deal. Thank you Brian, we look forward to enjoying our home and the neighbourhood for many years to come.

Andre de Wet - Kildare Grove, Killarney Heights

Thanks for helping us buy our new home at 60 Londonderry. It was our first auction and your strategy and advice played a huge part in us getting the house at a price we're very happy with. Working with you showed us that you understand both buyers and sellers and that's why we decided to use you for the sale of our own home at 61 Darley Street - we know you'll work as well with the buyers for our home as you did with us.

Andrew & Tsugumi West - Killarney Heights

We would like to thank Brian Fairweather of Ray White for obtaining a great sale price for our house. Brian bends over backwards to make the whole sale process easier. I have a toddler and it was a challenge to keep the house tidy. With Brian we only needed two house inspections and the house sold after just four days on the market. Brian was courteous and attentive at all times. His knowledge of the real estate market was extensive and he conducted the sale with honesty and integrity. We will contact Brian again when its time to sell our next house!

Lija & Alwyn Arthur - Salerno Street, Forestville

I would be glad to recommend Brian to anyone thinking of selling their property, based on the results that Brian achieved for me when selling my home of 20 years in Killarney Heights. Brian provided me with professional advise throughout the entire process, and he managed the auction and negotiation processed so well. In fact, the price we achieved on auction day was a record for three-bedroom homes in the neighbourhood!!! I was very happy with the results achieved in only about 4 weeks, and found Brian to be responsive to all my questions and requests before and after sale.

Rebecca Hsu - 25 Donegal Rd, Killarney Heights

To Whom It May Concern: I was very happy to have Brian Fairweather work with me to sell my home of 45 years. Throughout the whole process Brian was a pleasure to work with. He was professional, conscientious, motivated, easy to talk to and a good listener. He promptly returned all phone calls and emails and scheduled all meetings and interactions at a time that suited me. He worked very hard and illustrated a great understanding of contract details and negotiation etiquette. Brian was the outstanding professional I was looking for and having him work with me made a nerve-wracking experience a wonderful success! I highly recommend Brian to anyone looking for a highly effective, honest, and reliable real estate.

Ken Mackay - Peacock Pde, Frenchs Forest

Our dealing with Brian re selling our home in Forestville was very painless. Everything he said he would do went like clockwork. We are very happy to say that 7 days from the first time we saw him he sold our house! He is very professional, helpful and a very nice gentleman. We would have no hesitation with dealing with him in the future.

Phil & Louise Mallard - Yiremba Place, Forestville

Brian, Just wanted to thank you once again for your assistance with the purchase 1B Fitzpatrick Ave. We are so excited and thrilled with being successful today. Of course, we would like to thank you for being patient and professional in your response to our purchase with the property. You were always there to answer our questions, which means a lot when going through this sort of process. We may be in touch in the future!

David & Natalie Murdoch - Fitzpatrick Ave W, Frenchs Forest

You won't find a more hard working, more knowledgeable, more helpful, courteous, fair, and just down right nice guy than Brian Fairweather. When we went to sell our house, we had to choose an agent, and I remember my father-in-law saying, "Well, Brian sounds like the guy that would the absolute best job." And the best job he did. In a falling market at the time, Brian got us the best price... But his efforts didn't stop there. We had to find a house to buy, and when we found one, Brian offered to help us with the purchase - at no charge! It came down to a bidding war on the phone, and Brian was right on the other end of the line with some great advice. He goes above and beyond the call of duty - as an example he even picked up a couple of packages that were delivered to the old address and dropped them off at our new place! I feel confident in recommending Brian's services to anyone looking to buy or sell in this very busy real estate market.

Tim & Sarah Webster - Ilford Road, Frenchs Forest

My husband and I have known Brian Fairweather for almost 2 years now; we met Brian when we purchased our townhouse in Frenchs Forest as he was the selling agent. At the time we purchased our townhouse there was a lot of interest in the property and Brian dealt with the sale in a fair, professional and courteous manner. Communication was clear and Brian was always able to answer any questions we had. Brian did not engage in any selling tactics which made us feel as though we were not being told the truth and we were not played off unfairly against other buyers. When it came time to sell our townhouse, Brian seemed a logical choice...Brian walked us step by step through the selling process, met us after hours to fit in with our busy schedules and kept us informed of progress after each open for inspection until our property was sold. Brian managed to achieve for us a great selling price (well above our expectations) in a slow market. In turn we were then able to up-size and purchase our dream home. As an extra service Brian acted for us (free of charge) as a buyers' agent when we were searching for our next property. His skill and expertise in negotiating helped us to secure our current property when the deal was at high risk of falling through. Brian really went the extra mile... We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Brian Fairweather as a selling agent or buyers' agent for any real estate needs you have.

Linda & Andrew Dowbiggin - Frenchs Forest

We knew from the beginning you were the right choice to sell our unit. You went above and beyond and exceeded our expectations for which were truly grateful. Dee & Paul

Mr & Mrs Juergens - Gordon Street, Manly Vale

Drew and I just wanted to write and Thank you for all your great effort in selling our unit last year. After buying the unit through you we were more than happy to have you back to help us sell it. It was very reassuring for us to have a familiar face in the very unfamiliar and sometimes daunting real estate market. Your honest advice about the market at that certain time helped us achieve our goal of selling and being out before Christmas with an extra bonus of three and a half weeks to spare. You made sure to always keep us up to date after every open inspection and were also very mindful that with a 1 and a 1/2 year old toddler we had plenty of notice to any changes that occurred. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to any of our family and friends looking for a real estate agent in the future, and are very happy to say that you now are our real estate agent for life, making our search for our new home a much more relaxed one than in the past. Thank you again for your help and genuine kindness to us both.

Erin & Drew Anderson - Starkey St, Forestville

We have now had 2 dealings with Brian, firstly when he helped us buy our property and now again he has helped us sell the same property. When it comes to Killarney Heights there are simply no other agents that have the same depth of knowledge or contacts, this combined with both his professionalism and integrity (and ever harder quality to finds these days) makes him simply the best choice whether you are buying or selling. Brian has helped us achieve the results we wanted in both scenarios and to me there is nothing more I could want from a Real Estate agent. We will certainly use Brian again any opportunity we get and are happy to recommend him to anyone.

Stephen & Melissa Grace - Killarney Heights

Prior to placing our property on the market I was well aware that Brian Fairweather was most successful in achieving optimum results in the sale of houses in the Killarney Heights area. It was with confidence that I was pleased to engage Brian to sell the house and I quickly found that Brian backed up his words and promises by delivering action. The marketing plan was well considered and realistic and his communication and negotiation skills were outstanding. I therefore am very pleased to be able to recommend Brian Fairweather as an agent who gets results.

Adrian Butler - 11 Drumcliff Avenue, Killarney Heights

We would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation of your time and effort to sell our house. Your extensive knowledge of the current housing market and in people made a difficult situation a little easier. You quickly summed up the uniqueness of our property, and where it fitted in, within that market. Your well presented marketing proposal provided a realistic strategy which was followed through with diligence. We also appreciated the wonderful online advertising and your neutral, calm and professional approach to both parties. Your sound advice along the way helped us immensely, as did your regular updates on the progress of the sale. Overall, you and your team provided an excellent service, your professional yet down to earth assistance throughout was greatly appreciated. The photography was excellent and your friendly helpful manner overall is a credit to your profession. Your experience and knowledge of the area truly shows through in all aspects of your work. We would be very happy to recommend your services and would very happily use your services again.

Scott & Karen Henderson - 56 Ashworth Avenue, Belrose

Brian, In all my years I have never experienced a real estate agent that delivers the total package to his clients. You provide a great customer experience. Well done and keep it up. (Three years later...) You continue to impress me with the service you provide to your clients. As an executive in sales/service, I would say with complete confidence that the service you provide should be a template for the real estate industry. You give credibility and honesty to your profession. Congratulations on setting the highest benchmark I have seen in 41 years of owning property. Kindest Regards Tony Pescott

Tony Pescott - Londonderry Drive, Killarney Heights

Dear Brian, We are writing to thank you very much for all your help in selling our home at 32 Ballyshannon Road, Killarney Heights. The house had previously been on the market with another agent for many months without success. We greatly appreciate the new strategies that you developed to quickly attract potential buyers. We were also impressed by your energy, enthusiasm and professionalism, which resulted in a prompt sale in a difficult market. We would have no hesitation to recommend you to others. Yours, Sincerely,

Tony & Cathy Frost - 32 Ballyshannon Rd, Killarney Heights

We are now happily settled into our beautiful city apartment after nearly 22 years living at 13 Cavan Road, Killarney Heights. Thank you for your assistance in selling our much-loved family home. We were very impressed with every aspect of your professionalism and expertise in securing the best possible price for the house, and ensuring that all aspects of the transaction proceeded smoothly. From our initial contact with you we appreciated your methodical and thorough plan for the marketing and sale of our property. We are grateful for your enthusiasm, genuine interest, open communication and friendly approach to what others say can be a fairly traumatic experience. Fortunately this was not the case with us. We wish you all the best for future success in the Killarney and Forestville local area. PS Thanks for the champagne – a lovely touch!

Brett & Lindy Batchelor - 13 Cavan Road, Killarney Heights

Dear Brian, On behalf of Evonne, Julie and myself, I wish to express my appreciation of the wonderful job you did in the successful selling of our home at 6 Kinsdale Close, in Killarney Heights. The house has been on the market with two previous agents and it was not until you took over that things began to happen. The way you kept us informed of the ongoing open house meetings and the enthusiasm you displayed over the five weeks or so until the final conclusion was greatly appreciated. Once again, many thanks for what you have achieved for us over the past few weeks.

A Piggott - Kinsdale Cl, Killarney Heights

Dear Brian We write to thank you for your efforts in bringing the sale of our apartment in Manly to a successful conclusion. We have been absolutely impressed by your professionalism throughout the entire process, beginning with the planning and throughout the program. Particularly, always keeping us up to date concerning prospective buyers, as well as valuable impressions and insights into how the people looking at the apartment were reacting. As is normal in these situations of open house, we are not there and must rely on your summation of the situation. This was even more important as we were in Melbourne and far from the situation. You have made us feel part of the process and closer to the action by always keeping us up to date and this has been a comfort and pleasure (not common from our experience). In the end, we have the sale with the price we are happy to accept. This is surely the result of your fine efforts and we really appreciate that. Our feeling was one of dealing always with a complete professional and not someone who was only in it for the money. That is a big difference. We would very much like to thank you and to state that we would absolutely recommend you without hesitation to any prospective customer.

Mr & Mrs Keen - Central Ave, Manly

Dear Brian, We would just like to thank you in helping us purchase our new home. We met you when inspecting our house and only had 7 days before the Auction and had a lot get organised. We found that you were extremely helpful in providing us information regarding the property, and you were contactable at all times when we had to organise inspections or just had questions which we were really grateful for. You kept us informed on any updates we needed to know about and on the actual day of the Auction you were very helpful in leading us to being able to purchase our home. Post Auction, your service was also amazing, you kept us informed of all paperwork, dates, contact with the vendor without us having to call you and ask for anything. As we were new to the area, you also informed us of social events, clubs and activities that we may be interested in. We also were impressed with the "new address" cards that were given to us as a gift, which was a very thoughtful gesture. Brian, you have made us even more excited about moving into the area, as you obviously very much enjoy living in the area yourself and that has made a real difference to the experience of us buying our home and getting started with the next chapter of our life in Killarney Heights. Keep up the great work and again thanks for everything.

Mr & Mrs Boots - Cavan Road

Friends of ours who were moving to Queensland recently sold their house through Brian Fairweather's company. They were very happy with the result and professionalism shown. As a result we approached Brian to see if he could help us purchase a house which had been for sale but had been withdrawn from the market. By his careful and skilled approaches to the owner we were able to purchase the property.

Tim & Heather White - Drumcliff Ave, Killarney Heights

When it comes to true professionalism you can't go past Brian Fairweather who works very hard, not only having an excellent approach but is very driven with committment to achieving results for the closure of sales that suit both buyer and seller. Having had negative results with other Agents for the selling of our home it was an experience we'll never forget with Brian's achievement of getting positive results in such a short space of time. No other Agent even came close! We are so impressed we are telling EVERYONE about our experience and recommending Brian's expertise for securing total satisfaction. He is definitely outstanding and not an average "run of the mill" Real Estate Agent. Thank you Brian and we will definitely use your services in the future.

The Ohanians - Drumcliff Ave, Killarney Heights

Hi Brian, Just a quick note to thank you for all your help with the sell of our property in Killarney Heights. I was very impressed with the professionalism that you manifested during the whole process and the fact that you backed all your talks with actual action, which often can be a rare commodity. I wish you and your family a happy and prosperous year ahead.

Shawn Rouhani - Cavan Rd, Killarney Heights

Jill and I just wanted to thank you for the extra effort that you put in, to make this purchase a possibility for us. We really appreciate it and are looking forward to moving in to our new home. *** 3 years later... *** Dear Brian, Just a quick note to express our appreciation of your involvement with the recent sale of our home. We were so pleased to have you as our agent for the sale, having purchased the same property from you a few years earlier we had been very impressed with your professionalism at that time. It was a pleasure to deal with you and your staff throughout the entire process of the sale. We appreciated you fitting in with our busy work schedule, making yourself available to see us after hours and for us to be able to contact you after hours. You left us feeling fully confident with our choice of agent and we were very happy with the final outcome. We would happily recommend you to friends and family and we would have no hesitation in employing your services again in the future, should we ever need to. Kind regards Jill and David Ahel

Jill & David Ahel - John Oxley Drive, Frenchs Forest

Brian's refreshing approach to 'plain old fashion customer service' is to deliver it with energy, consistency and a timely regard for both vendors and purchasers alike. An agent's skill in drawing together the requirements and wishes of an appointing seller with likely and enquiring buyers will more often than not influence directly whether a deal satisfactory to all parties is achieved quickly and with clarity - which is a skill Brian has plenty of. Matched with a forthright but unassuming nature, I would highly recommend Brian as a person who works tirelessly to achieve effective outcomes.

Leong Khoo - Newtown

Brian helped us both sell our apartment and buy our new house. Throughout the process, Brian helped alleviate the strain and tension by organising simultaneous settlements on our sale and purchase and keeping us constantly appraised. Brian's support team at Ray White have been fantastic as well and we are very impressed by his professionalism and dedication. During the process of looking at houses, we met numerous agents and very few of them made the impression on us that Brian did. I have recommended Brian to friends and family and will definitely be using him again the next time around.

Mr Jayaram - Forestville/Belrose

Brian took a lot of time w/me and educated me on the Australian Market versus the Canadian and American Market. He empathized with my confusion over the Aussie way of home buying and made a significant contribution to my understanding how the business of home buying is done here. I never did end up purchasing a house from him but if ever the occasion arises to recommend a realtor, I will certainly recommend him. From a buyer's perspective he gives great customer service.

Gregg Landry - East Killara

We would like to thank Brian Fairweather for achieving such a fantastic result on the sale of our property. We are so pleased with the outcome and have been very impressed with the process. We were kept informed every step of the way which made the process of selling our home a lot less stressful. Brian and Shane went the extra mile. I doubt you will find many real estate agents prepared to pay you a weekly home visit, sometimes after 9pm, to give you an update on the status of your sale. Thank you once again Brian and Shane, I strongly doubt we would have achieved such a great result from any other real estate agent in the area. Kind Regards,

Natasha, Peter & Finlay Hobson - Starkey St, Forestville

My wife and I engaged Brian Fairweather to manage the auction of our home in July 2010. The methodical and structured approach that Brian described to us was executed in a flawless, "text book" manner throughout the entire process. Each open house was followed up meticulously with individual comments and up to the minute market information. Brian's attention to detail and experience of the local market was extremely impressive. The strategic approach taken throughout the entire experience could not be faulted. In our opinion Brian over achieved in every aspect of the sale including of course the ultimate price. We would not hesitate in recommending Brian to anyone requiring a true professional to market their home.

S & T Hewitt - 12 Oxley Pl, Frenchs Forest

Hi Brian, We would like to thank you about the sale of our property. We cannot speak highly enough of your work practices. You made selling our property so easy. The level of professionalism was amazing, the fact that you kept us informed regularly , and the level of care you took in the entire sale process cannot be matched. Customer service and satisfaction other businesses should aspire to. Hope that you will be around next we need to either buy or sell a house. Thank you again on behalf of our family.

Mr & Mrs Varvarian - 5 Chalmers St, Beacon Hill

Dear Brian, We would like to sincerely thank you for your assistance in facilitating the purchase of our new home in Killarney Heights. As you know we had been unsuccessful in trying to negotiate through the vendor's selling agent. It was due to your professional guidance, enthusiasm and efforts that we were able to purchase the property at a fair price. This was most impressive given that you were not even the vendor's agent! Purchasing a property can be stressful and we trusted your advice and followed your recommended strategy, this resulted in a successful purchase and overall a stress-free experience. We would not hesitate to recommend you to any prospective clients, we are most grateful. Best regards,

J&B Haikalis - Killarney Heights

"Brian is the type of real estate agent that all real estate agents should aspire to be. No request was too difficult for him and every request was followed up with an action. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to buyers and sellers. He made the buying process a breeze."

Ms Tanya Lee - North Sydney

To whom it may concern. We would just like to thank Brian Fairweather of Ray White real estate. Brian just sold our home at 6 Neridah Avenue, Belrose. Brian achieved a fantastic result in a very short time, he was very professional and courteous throughout the whole process. We were extremely happy with the outcome and would have no hesitation in recommending Brian to anyone wishing to sell their property.

Pascal & Renata Massa - Neridah Avenue, Belrose

"Brian is an intelligent, well informed and personable guy, qualities you really look for in an agent, whether you're buying or selling. I have no hesitation in recommending Brian. He has energy to burn and channels it in the best interests of his clients."

M Worman - 7 Leinster Ave, Killarney Heights

"When I decided to sell my property in Frenchs Forest Brian Fairweather came highly recommended to me by a member of my family. I was advised that he was 'across the market', and very professional in his methods. Before I engaged Brian, he provided me with a list of his previous clients and suggested that I contact them as points of reference. After I engaged Brian it became evident that his planning was thorough. I was impressed by the 'crew' that he brought with him to take photographs and was pleased that he kept me up to date throughout the campaign. His advertising and marketing strategies were excellent and as a result my property was sold within a very short period of time. I found him to be a very comfortable person to work with and would recommend him wholeheartedly to prospective buyers and/or sellers."

Mrs Betty Barnes, Medical Research Order of Australia - Fitzpatrick Ave W, Frenchs Forest

"Selling a house is a very stressful time, and Brian you made it smooth and simple. We were particularly happy with the weekly updates and at no time did we feel uninformed. In stark contrast to our purchase [through another agent], we received consistent service from beginning to end, with your interest not waivering despite the fact that the house was SOLD. Your energy and enthusiasm are a credit to you and the business (not the industry!!) you work in."

S Cornes & D Carroll - Cashel Cr, Killarney Heights

"Dear Brian, Betty and I would like to congratulate you on the outstanding result you achieved for the sale of our Killarney Heights property. When we were deciding which agent to appoint, we were impressed by your personal approach and enthusiasm. We finally decided to select you after you insisted we contact any number of your referees. Each of them had had the same positive experience as we have now had, which is why we are also happy to be contacted by any of your prospective clients in the future. At all times, you have conducted yourself with the utmost professionalism and integrity. You involved us from the commencement of the campaign in both the review and acceptance of all marketing material and advertising mediums and you constantly kept us informed of all developments throughout the campaign. Of particular note was the concise, accurate and informative written report you provided to us during our regular weekly progress meeting. Your feedback enabled us to gain an accurate estimate of our property's market value and certainly was a major factor when we were deciding to accept the offer you negotiated, prior to the property going to auction. We have no hesitation in recommending Brian to anyone considering to engage his services."

Mr & Mrs Parkyn - 96 Melwood Ave, Killarney Heights

"We met Brian recently when purchasing our new home and found him to be a very professional and dedicated agent. He kept us well informed at all times in the process and was happy to put himself out in order to assist us to facilitate the transaction as effectively as possible. We have recommended him to friends who are currently looking to purchase a property in the Northern Beaches."

J Andres & I Costello - Tudor Cl, Belrose

"We recently engaged Brian to sell our home. Until meeting Brian, I was 'underwhelmed' at the levels of professionalism that other agents exhibited. His process, diligence and unwavering professionalism delivered us a "best in market" price, with a level of integrity that sets a new benchmark for professional real estate agents in this country. I highly recommend Brian and his commitment to business excellence and solid sales processes. He works hard for his clients and gives his buyers the very best opportunity to purchase by using faultless communication and a clear understanding of their position in the buying process of a new home."

A Cadwallader - 10 Tora Place, Forestville

"My wife and I were somewhat apprehensive about whether or not we should sell our investment unit, given the market conditions at the time. Brian was very mindful of our concerns and explained in very simple and uncomplicated terms how we could be in the best position to effect a sale. He didn't over-promise what he could deliver, and the sale price obtained for us was above the price which we had assumed, following our initial discussions. The sale itself took only 8 days and contracts were exchanged immediately after the second inspection. The process exceeded our expectations, as Brian continually kept us informed and at no time did either my wife or I feel stressed. When we decided to sell another investment unit later in the year, Brian handled the sale and again achieved the same quality result within a week."

C Pudig - Clontarf

"Brian Fairweather sold my apartment in October 2009. Brian is a very thorough, pleasant and reliable person. I highly recomend Brian to his future clients"

Mrs Pach - Howard Ave, Dee Why

"I am very pleased to recommend Brian. He has an exemplary professional attitude combined, with a personal and very amenable character. He provides consistent, timely, accurate feedback at all stages of the sale, and boundless energy in keeping in touch with all parties involved. I would not hesitate in procuring Brian's services again when the need arises."

W Cieslik - Knightsbridge Ave, Belrose

"Brian has been fantastic from start to finish. Felt very comfortable and well looked after through the purchase of my first home. His quality of communication lead to a stress free and enjoyable purchase. Brian's experience and professionalism lead to a peace of mind you need when buying a home."

P Rouse - 35 Darley St, Queenscliff

"Brian was contracted to sell our property in Forestville in 2009. Throughout the process Brian ensured we were kept up to date and provided professional and appropriate advice. The outcome was a fast sale well above expectations. Highly recommend."

D MacRae - 9 Tora Pl, Forestville

"After meeting Brian, both of us were convinced that he would sell our house. We highly recommend him to prospective clients."

Mr & Mrs Sinha - Gilliana Pl, Belrose

"Brian Fairweather is a true professional. He provided us with up-to-date information about the current housing market, and gave us good advice about how to prepare and market our house. Brian worked hard with good sales strategies, particularly when it came to closing the deal. We were thrilled with the end results. All in all a very positive experience!"

Mr & Mrs Harvey - Angophora Cr, Forestville

Professional manner & always kept us informed as to any progress being made.
