Testimonials

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.

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.

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.

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.

I write to thank you for the way in which Marshall White Brighton recently handled the sale of our house in Brighton East. Both Lisa and I were pleased with the way in which you, Peter Kakos and Dahli Woosnam managed the sale campaign. From the start you made us feel at ease & kept us informed through every step of the sale process. Your knowledge, honesty, professionalism & confidence were greatly appreciated, and these were key contributing factors to achieving the successful sale outcome. Peter’s personable style, market knowledge and auctioneering prowess were also greatly appreciated. And Dahli played a very good support role in arranging the marketing of the house. Finally, Lisa and I would have no hesitation recommending you and your agency to other people.

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.

I have recently put my house for sale and Kate Strickland was to be my first and only estate agent to call. I had seen her being so professional, knowledgeable and easy to interact with during houses inspections. With that in mind, it made sense that she should represent my property. The house is now sold and rather successfully. Kate and her team devised a rather efficient marketing campaign, spreading the word about the house as far and wide as they could & making the most of current multi media platforms to advertise it. I appreciated her weekly inspections meetings & reports allowing me a clear insight into potential buyers’s feedbacks & profiles, volumes of inspections, comparable properties for sale. Kate’s network and connection to potential buyers is beyond impressive. Her hard work ethic, natural communication skills and undying positive energy make her a real force to be reckoned with. She’s a very trustworthy, honest and accountable individual and I identified such values from our very first meeting. I have sold my house and gained a friend too. Kate nurtures relationships and invest sincerely in people. Selling a house can be such a stressful process yet with the support of Kate Strickland and her team at Marshall and White, I knew that results would be delivered with utmost professionalism.

Thanks so much for your prompt work on our behalf. We really appreciate all that you have done for us over the past few months. The whole campaign has been run very efficiently and all details have been executed like clockwork. Both Lyn and I would sincerely like to thank the whole team especially Kate, Andrew, and of course our wonderful auctioneer Stephen for their wonderful communication and unrelenting efforts to achieve a successful sale outcome. By fastidious and ongoing attention to their clients Marshall White has positioned itself as a force to be reckoned with in the Bayside real estate scene and will be my first choice when referring colleagues and family. Once again. a huge thank you and keep up the good work!

I engaged the services of Marshall White to sell my property in Brighton in 2017. I knew I wanted to use Marshall White from the start, their reputation in the area is second to none and I had seen Kate Strickland in action at many Open for Inspections and knew I wanted an agent as enthusiastic, dedicated and energetic as her to sell my home. What I didn’t realise at the time was how far they would exceed my expectations. Selling a home can be stressful, but Kate Strickland, Andrew Campbell, Dahli Woosnam, James Redfern and the rest of the Marshall White team involved communicated honestly and openly with me throughout the process. Not once did I feel like I was on an opposing side, we were a team from the start. When the property sold (before auction in the end) I felt we all celebrated, and although they achieved an amazing result for their agency, they were genuinely happy for me. I could not recommended this agency or the team more highly. When I’m in the market again, I won’t shop around, I know Marshall White will provide me with the care, respect, honesty and result you just can’t find anywhere else. A big thanks to the Marshall White Brighton Office!

Hi Kate and Team, just a note of thanks for a brilliant result achieved for 749 Hawthorn Rd, Brighton East. Selling the family home is a daunting process, it is an emotional decision and the last thing many of us would want to put our families through. So when we reflect on the process of selling our home some of the things that stand out about our experience with Marshall White is the incredible professionalism and a feeling of being ‘in good hands’ throughout the whole process. The team’s experience and knowledge around styling, photos and the level of work required to get our property to market helped us make sensible choices which in turn translated to a higher return. When an appointment is booked, it happens and the energy around the whole campaign was strong and helped bolster our own energy. Kate and the team worked tirelessly to accommodate inspections to suit busy buyers and provided us with background information about each buyer so we understood our positioning in the market. We felt part of the process and provided us with invaluable insight into what the market felt, this in turn helped us make considered decisions around reserves and auction strategies. Kate and team, we have enjoyed working with you and we wish you great success for the future, you have worked hard for it and you deserve it!

We have worked with Kate for around 5 years before finally engaging both her and Dahli to sell our property. From the outset, her enthusiasm and ability to offer a bespoke approach made Kate the obvious choice to facilitate the sale. Throughout the campaign, Kate was great communicator and negotiator. We would have no hesitation in recommending her services to any potential vendor. Kindest,

Lee & Colin
