I was very pleased with the sales experience and the result that was achieved with the sale of my
property at 16 Missouri Avenue, Brighton through Marshall White.
The Sales Team of Kate Strickland and Gerry Gordon were very professional but it was Kate’s energy and optimism that helped me through a very emotional and high pressure campaign.
Dahli Woosnam managed all of the detail very efficiently from the Brighton office and went beyond
the call of duty to come out and assist me with the preparation of the property for a successful photo shoot.
All the Open for Inspections were well attended and I received a report from Kate on each one
promptly after the inspection.
I know that Joel Fredman assisted Kate with most (if not all of the inspections) and once again I was very pleased with his courtesy, professionalism and his ability to help present the property in its best light. In the last few days in the lead up to the auction, Gerry, Kate and the auctioneer Peter Kakos were very helpful in establishing the protocol for auction day.
The auction ran very smoothly and as I have said the result was very good.
I would not hesitate to recommend Marshall White as an agent of choice within this area.

I just wanted to thank you for all your efforts on the sale of our property in Brighton. I must say your service, advice and execution was first rate.
The marketing preparation was very well co-ordinated, communication and advice during the campaign was regular, well informed and precise and the auction itself was text book perfect. It is clear that Kate had spent considerable time and effort working with the potential buyers to ensure they were all there on the day and ready to compete for the property.
The Marshall White teamwork was evident throughout the sale process and enabled us to achieve the very best possible price for our largest investment.
Thank you once again and all the best for the remainder of the Spring selling season.

We recently sold our home with Kate Strickland and Gerry Gordon of Marshall White Brighton.
We were impressed by Kate's enthusiasm and Gerry's professionalism , Dahli's hard work behind the scenes, and Peter's outstanding auctioneering skills.
They went above and beyond the service we expected. They made a hard and stressful experience of selling our home as smooth as possible and they achieved a fantastic sale price at auction, well above our reserve!
Their services did not stop once the auction was completed. They have followed up ensuring a smooth outcome for all involved.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Marshall White Brighton and will definitely engage them again if we were to sell.
- Kellie & Robert Francischelli
This is just a short note to thank you for all your assistance and professionalism throughout the sale of our house. We really appreciate you and your teams help in what was such a short campaign!

Having dealt with Kate Strickland as both buyer, and vendor within the last two years, I can only commend her on her professional, friendly and approachable attitude.
She is always available with advice and reassurance to her clients and potential buyers. Her knowledge of the Brighton and Bayside area is second to none, which is invaluable when selling/purchasing in the area.
I would have no hesitation in recommending her to others, and I look forward to the next time we cross paths.
My husband and I have been Kate’s clients for over 6 years – firstly with the purchase of our first property upon our arrival in Australia , and recently with the sale of our property 13 Plunket Street, Brighton East.
As newcomers to a country, Kate guided us through all the legalities and procedures regarding the purchase of a new home , and using her negotiating skills – ensured we were able to move into our home , in time for our first Australian Christmas – and the arrival of overseas visitors. Quite a feat !
Now – we have sold our home with the aid of Kate and her great team at Marshall White ( thank you Dahli & Jerry ) – the professional nature with which Marshall White markets your home, manages open houses and the sale process --makes what could be a very stressful time – less so. In our case the availability of a native Chinese salesperson on site was also invaluable.
Weekly face to face meetings , help keep vendors up to date with sales strategy and market situations , and the availability of a friendly and efficient sales team – make it a pleasure doing business.
We would not hesitate in recommending Kate and her colleagues at Marshall White. And wish all of them a well deserved break over the summer months.

Both Lisa and I were pleased with the way in which you, Peter Kakos and Dahli Woosnam managed the sale campaign.

We engaged with Kate Strickland and Fiona Ansell-Jones of Marshall White for the sale of our family home in Brighton East. Our selection was primarily based on their reputation and presence in their respective markets and we were pleasantly amazed, throughout the campaign, to the succesful sale of our home. What became immediately clear, is the deep market knowledge both Kate and Fiona have of the property market, in terms of recent and historical sales as well as buyers.
They managed our expectations thoughtfully and respectfully, Kate, Fiona, Andre and we, fast becoming a "team". Kate and Fiona's marketing strategy and campaign management demonstrated great precision and expertise in identifying and securing buyer interest, leading to a highly successful result at auction, expertly led by the extraordinary, Peter Kakos. We would have no hesitation in recommending the exceptional services of Kate Strickland, Fiona Ansell-Jones and the Marshall White team, to anyone selling their home or investment property.

From the initial meeting with Kate I felt we built an excellent repour and I knew she was the right person to sell my house in Brighton. The team at Marshall White coordinated the presentation of the house and presented it impeccably. Kate and her team went above and beyond what I would expect from agents and exceeded all my expectations which resulted in an excellent sale at auction. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell in the Brighton area.

Our experience with Kate Strickland and the Marshall White team was excellent. Given our timeline, Kate quickly put in place a campaign timeline, marketing plan and assisted in helping us prepare to show our home in less than a week. The quality of work is top-notch.
Kate and Dahli are great at communicating with clients. They quickly addressed all questions and assisted in completing all tasks pre, during and post-campaign. We were thankful for their guidance through the sales process, and very pleased with the outcome of our campaign.
Kate and her team work hard and deliver a high-quality product. We highly recommend Kate and are thankful for all of her efforts in selling our home.

This is the second property I have sold with Kate Strickland and her team.
It’s always a pleasure to work with people that are as passionate as you in wanting to achieve the best possible results when selling a property that has been a huge part of your life not only physically but emotionally.
I would not hesitate to recommend Kate and her team to anyone wanting to sell. From the moment I made the decision to put the property on the market, we hit the ground running. All I had to do was hand the keys over and the team did everything else, I had nothing to do but turn up on Auction day.
Peter my auctioneer worked with the buyers and was able to achieve the most amazing result more than I could have asked for.
It can be a very stressful time selling a property but from the moment I spoke with Kate I knew I had made the right decision. I would personally like to thank, Kate Strickland, Spencer Mitchell and Kate’s amazing assistant Dahli Woosnam.
I would highly recommend Kate Strickland and all the team at Marshall White.

After much searching and interviewing, I chose Marshall White (Robin Parker and Kate Strickland) to sell our newly renovated home in Hampton. It was a stressful time as we were relocating to the USA with our 4 children and selling our house at the same time, I wanted to be sure that I had the right people for the job. I was not disappointed, the level of care, professionalism and the odd bit of humour was exactly what I needed and all of us worked together as a team.
Robin and Kate, supported by Jessica and Dahli, were the winning team and the level of communication and professionalism continued from the first meeting, until the end of the campaign. My stress levels reduced dramatically as I knew I had the right team and trust was built early on, so I felt comfortable handing the reins over to Robin and Kate and was guided by them throughout the process.
The reporting that was delivered throughout the campaign was excellent and really helped shape my understanding of the market and gauge how the campaign was going. I have my real estate licence in Hong Kong and Melbourne, so am not new to the game, however, there was not one conversation that I had with Robin and Kate, where I did not feel they were spot on, so again the trust just got greater as we moved through the campaign as we were all on the same page and this was a result of strong communication, data to back it up and genuine care for what we were going through.
Dahli and Jessica were both excellent as well, and rolled with the punches as I changed appointments, requested additional information etc. The marketing and copy was exactly what we wanted and no errors were made, I just felt they were “on it” and I did not have to double check everything as I knew they would get it done to the same standard as what I would want.
Robin did an outstanding job at the auction under trying conditions and I was supported by both Kate and Robin prior to the auction with several face to face meetings and phone calls, so felt prepared for all scenarios on auction day. I was thankful for this, as we had some decisions to make on auction day and I trusted Robin and Kate and as a result received the best possible outcome for the sale.
Robin and Kate’s caring nature and knowledge was very much appreciated throughout the whole campaign and we are over the moon with the result, so as the boxes are being packed up around me, a new chapter begins, however, if or when we return to Melbourne one day, I hope that the team are still there as would certainly look up and recommend this team to anyone and all.

The service I received from Kate Strickland and her team at Marshall White in Brighton (namely: Gerry, Beth and Dahli) was exceptional.
From the first meeting, Kate and her crew proved their worth as high-calibre Agents. Their knowledge of the local market was superior, their list of potential buyers amazing, and clarity of thought on how to structure a first class campaign to ensure the best possible outcome was exciting.
Prior to the sale process, the team went out of their way to help ensure the property presented ‘ready’ for sale. Due to my work commitments, there were a few logistical challenges, but Kate’s passion and drive ensured we got through.
During the campaign, the Marshall White crew were a pleasure to work with. I enjoyed meeting and working with them all on each and every occasion, and I was confident the team was working in my best interest at all times by focusing only on qualified buyers. As the closing date approached, Kate and Gerry, managed to close the sale as predicted.
Kate Strickland is truly an amazing Agent, who is qualified, trustworthy and knowledgeable. She possesses a level of professionalism that often you don't see. She’s so full of energy and committed to her client’s campaign, and her upbeat personality is also contagious!
Gerry Gordon is also a standout Agent, who has an open and honest communication style, which helps build confidence and trust with buyers.
Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Kate and her outfit to help you in this life changing move. I could not have asked for a better representative and I look forward to working with Kate, Gerry and the Marshall White team again.

What a pleasure it is to deal with Marshall White. Their drive and hard work left us comfortable in the lead up to the auction that everything was being done to ensure the best possible outcome. The communication was excellent and very much appreciated, and their systems obviously work! Great result. Will always recommend Kate and her team without hesitation and look forward to dealing with them again on future projects.
