Over the past 10 years I have had 1-2 properties being looked after by Joanne and her staff. I have been extremely happy with their professionalism and positive response to what must be a very difficult, thankless job. The property managers have been active in their response to repairs and always patient with our frustrations. Joanne and her staff have always found us wonderful tenants and I thank them all for their work in protecting my properties. 

Professional service at all times

We recently rented an apartment through Stanton & Taylor, and have been looked after by Bree Thompson. Bree has been very pleasant and efficient to deal with. There were a few unforeseen issues with the apartment when we first moved in, and Bree promptly answered our emails and arranged for the relevant tradespeople to come and do what was needed to resolve the issues. Bree's communication has always been very clear, professional and personable, which we really appreciate.

Pleasure to work with
17 March 2016

Can I tell you a lovely story? My father came to St Marys, Australia in 1956 as a carpenter/builder. Eventually he built his own houses and the real estate agent helping him sell them was the original Stanton & Taylor.
Fast forward 50 years and he was still with S&T (Barker St, St Marys). When I was seeking a property to invest in, I popped into S&T Penrith. Joe Vella kindly took me around to inspect a couple of townhouses he had for sale and that’s how I ended up with George St Kingswood - a very pretty townhouse.
So two generations of the Paulin family have been served in their real estate needs by the professional staff at Stanton & Taylor.
Today the team includes Casey Adams whose prompt personalised service and good humour carries on the tradition that’s become Stanton & Taylor. For us, Stanton & Taylor is synonymous with great personalised service. Happy client, happy tenants!

Happy client, happy tenants

Throughout the time my properties have been managed by Stanton & Taylor Penrith, I have always found the team to be extremely prompt and professional with all dealings I have had with them. Skye always keeps me updated on the progress of any issues raised and the detailed inspection reports gives me comfort and satisfaction knowing that the properties are being managed by professional agents. Skye, you always go above and beyond with resolving any matters from my tenants and myself and I am very thankful for all your time and effort. I look forward to working with you more in the future.

A Pleasure dealing with you

From the first meeting at the open house to the day of settlement, Justin was professional. He was incredibly helpful and nothing was too much trouble for him. Everything went smoothly and I am very happy.

Smooth-Sailing Process

Justin's advice and support from our initial meeting through organizing repairs to the property for sale, liaising with current tenants and a polished marketing program all contributed to a very smooth sale process and a quick settlement at a price above expectations. Throughout, Justin displayed the highest level of skill, integrity and professionalism and earned my respect. Without any reservation, I would recommend Justin to anyone considering selling their property. You will not be disappointed as he is the ultimate professional.

The Ultimate Professional

We had the pleasure of dealing with Justin for the sale of our property in Cranebrook and couldn't be happier. Justin was recommended to us and lived up to our high expectations, going far beyond the call of duty throughout the process. Justin navigated the delicate process of dealing with existing tenants like a true professional to ensure their cooperation as well as facilitating the necessary repairs to the property. His communication and advice was excellent and kept us informed and relaxed throughout the sale. His local knowledge and professionalism was key to achieving a quick and impressive result. Justin is a passionate and hardworking agent that we simply cannot fault. - Matt and Kiri

Best Agent In Town

If you want a agent who is honest and open without any hidden agendas, can successfully negotiate the most fragile of purchases and still get your sale across the line, then Justin is the agent for you. I couldn't have been happier or more impressed with the service we received from Justin when selling our house. I know the outcomes wouldn't have been as spectacular without Justin on board. He goes the extra mile and remains at all times professional and positive. Justin will remain our agent as long as he is in the real estate game. Why would you choose any other agent, when you already know the best? - Nicolette

Excellent Negotiator

 Hi Greg,
 
Just wanted to thank you and your staff for the help in selling our duplex at Glenmore Park. Settlement was effected on Friday 11 April.
 
I have had a long association with Stanton and Taylor over 20 years from the time I first bought the duplex through your agency until the sale, also through your agency. In the intervening period, except for a few years when my sister rented the property from me, your agency managed the property for me involving several tenants. I have always found Stanton and Taylor to be professional in the approach to business adopted and I have always been happy with your service. Tenants were chosen carefully, inspections were done regularly and thoroughly. Your end of year statements and monthly statements were accurate and handy at tax time.
 
Also, you personally took time out to speak to me on several occasions not only on the sale but at other times to give advice. I know that over 20 years there has been staff turnover so it is impossible to thank those who have moved on but special thanks to the current property manager, Steve and to Joanne whom I dealt with over several years.
 
Thank you again. I appreciate your efforts and I would be happy to recommend your agency to others.
 
All the very best for the future.
 
Kindest regards,
Steve Eyles

His handling of the sale has verified his answers and achieved an excellent outcome for us. All the decisions made by Greg and his team were the same as I would have made personally. In fact I received the distinct impression that they were handling the sale far better than I could have despite my life experience in buying and selling my properties over the years.

Delighted With The Result

"I am writing to thank you for helping me find my first home. During my search for a suitable property I spoke to 15 different real estate agents in Penrith and surrounding suburbs from a variety of agencies. Your communication, enthusiasm and expertise was unmatched by any other estate agent in my experience. More than anything, I was left with the impression that you genuinely wanted to help me find the right house. While my purchase was no without its hiccups, as a newcomer to the real estate market I feel that the whole process was much easier thanks to you. I have no problem recommending you to friends, family & colleagues in the future should they be looking to purchase a property in the area."

K Oscar

Unmatched By Any Other Estate Agent

"We originally purchased this property through Stanton & Taylor First National, who also managed it as our investment over a long period of time.

Excellent Service

J Ronaldson

Stand Out Compared To Other Agents

"We would like to thank you and your team for the guidance and advice provided to us throughout the sale of our home. This said I have one complaint... you sold our house too quick! Finding a buyer at the price we wanted and exchanging contracts before the property came on the market must be some kind of record? My wife and I are extremely happy with the outcome and without a doubt your firm, Stanton and Taylor First National Real Estate, will be the first port of call should we need the services of an Estate Agent in the future. Thank you again!"

L Kelly

Guidance & Advice

Thankfully Stanton and Taylor made the whole process stress free and much to our surprise were able to sell our house for the asking price in just one week!

We will definitely be calling on Stanton and Taylor when we are ready to sell our next home and will be recommending them to our friends."

M & D Down

Sold In Less Than Four Weeks

"My husband and I would really like to thank the staff at Stanton and Taylor for the sale of our property. It was on the market for nine months with a Glenmore Park agent. Stanton and Taylor suggested public auction, within two weeks of the campaign our property was sold at a price we were more than happy with. Once again thank you to the staff at Stanton and Taylor First National."

Mr & Mrs Ayres

More Than Happy

"We are delighted with the service provided by the team at Stanton and Taylor. You were always punctual, very personable and very good with communication. You were always polite and diligent in your efforts to advertise and promote our property. You made this normally difficult transition a very simple and stress free process for us.

Attention To Detail

Avneet and Paramjeet

Much Obliged

"We wish to convey our appreciation for the professional and respectful manner our contract of sale was carried out by your staff members.

G and R Rea

Professional & Respectful

" I'm sure you are very well aware of this anyway, however I just wanted to say that you have probably the best real estate staff in Sydney working for you and I would have no hesitation in referring clients to you. I am only sorry I wasted six months with XXX Real Estate, because they were closer and my wife was more comfortable with a female agent. Thanks again for the extraordinary service."

J Cruz

Best Real Estate Staff In Sydney

"We had heard many horror stories about failed auction attempts and had no real knowledge of the process. You explained it all in detail and we were happy to trust you in going to auction. As well as preparing a very good advertising campaign you worked tirelessly to present our property to local investors, securing more than a dozen interested parties. You did much negotiation to qualify the extent of interest, resulting in a fast and very satisfactory sale comfortably above our expectations."

D Robinson

Happy To Trust You

P Cook

Won The Day

"We would like to express our greatest thanks for the job you did in the sale of our property, which was concluded in record time. We still cannot believe the way the sale went from taking photos on the Thursday afternoon, displaying the property and having the contract signed on the following Monday - a grand total of 5 days. Your professionalism and friendly nature were the deciding factors in our decision to used Stanton and Taylor, one that we are extremely happy with. This was justified in the price you obtained for us which, as you know was $15,000 more than the first agent suggested we list the property for. Once again, please accept our sincere thanks for a fantastic job with an exceptional result and I would surely recommend you to anybody who is interested in the property market."

B & A Stubbs

Exceptional Result

Your pleasant and efficient approach gave me every confidence that  the sale would be achieved without any worry on my behalf. I will advise any fiend of mine when they consider selling to phone Stanton and Taylor Estate Agents. Thank you once again for a very happy and satisfactory sale."
