Planning to relocate, I have just sold my townhouse in Forest Lodge with the help of Simon Coates of Harris Partners, a real estate agency based in Balmain from where the inner western suburbs of Sydney are covered.

I first met Simon a few years ago when he was selling another property in the area. With a keen eye for sales, he nonetheless also listens to potential clients responding well to my advice that while my property was not then on the market, it was not in his best interest to 'hound'. We stayed in touch and when the time came, I contacted him and subsequently awarded him the project of selling my home.

In preparation for the sale I was informed and consulted on all aspects of the process with regular updates on progress. As it happened, the sale was achieved remarkably quickly, a sure sign that Simon and his company were professional, leaving no stone unturned to achieve the successful result.

Simon has certainly achieved the desired result and, importantly, while keeping the novice seller calm throughout. Harris Partners provide an excellent service and, in Simon, they certainly have the right person for the task.
