Exceeded all our expectations

Stephen, is attentive, intelligent, supremely helpful and achieved a great result. Very happy to recommend him without reservation.

Andrew Moon – 42/5 Broughton Road, Artarmon 

Can’t recommend Stephen highly enough!

We were nervous about selling, but thanks to Stephen we achieved a result that far exceeded our expectations. We were really impressed with his knowledge of the market and the professional, yet friendly way he guided us through the whole process, making it effortless. He was able to give us valuable advice and organised everything we needed – beautiful styling, innovative marketing and the best auctioneer ever.

If you want an agent who is in touch with what’s going on in the market, listens to what you want and is easy to deal with, we highly recommend you give Stephen a call.

Hi Georgie, Sorry this took a while to get to you. Please see below our testimonial regarding having you as our managing agent for West St. Please feel free to use it where appropriate.

Thanks again for all your service and hard work. We really couldn’t have imagined it being any easier!

Hui Yee and David, 11/191 West Street Crows Nest

I am more than happy to provide a reference in relation to the services provided to me by Georgina Koeninger of Marriott Lane Real Estate.

I have engaged her as my agent to manage an investment property which I own.

I have, throughout the period of her engagement,  always found her to be a professional agent who looks after my property very well: including in finding tenants, advising on rental, dealing with any tenant questions, and generally managing the property for me.

I have no hesitation in recommending her to any property owner who may require an agent.

Bruce K Cutler, 6/17-19 Hume Street, Wollstonecraft

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Matthew Hanlon for his prompt attention and professional attitude at all times in the rental and management of my property.  I was absolutely delighted with the ease with which Matt master-minded the rental of my property last year – arranging fabulous photos, recommending good tradesmen, and advertising and successfully letting the property in one week, in a quiet but highly efficient manner.

At the time I was new to renting out property in the Sydney market, whilst simultaneously looking for somewhere to rent myself. Matt gave me very good advice on the steps to take through the process and I was amazed at the speed everything fell into place. I felt confident that Matt would ensure the selection of the best tenants, which certainly eventuated.  Being both a ‘renter’ and a ‘leaser’, I really like the way Matt considers the needs of both parties and I can always rely on his advice to reach a fair compromise.

12 months later, Matt has followed through with his promises, his inspections are thorough and his advice sound.  He deals with issues promptly and fairly, and I can be assured that he will always consult me if he has concerns.  I am very happy with Matt’s work and recommend him highly.  I hope Marriott Lane fully appreciate his efforts on their behalf!

Jane Rayond, 27A Bay Road, Waverton

Ben Janson has managed a property for me for just under a year and in that time he has been efficient, reliable and more than helpful in dealing with all matters related to that property.

For example, there were some significant issues with the re-framing of a timber door that was urgently required and Ben handled all the ‘nuts and bolts’ of the project sourcing appropriate people to do the job and overseeing its completion in a timely and professional manner.

I have not had to worry about the management of the property which is a great relief and therefore appreciate Ben’s professionalism as well as his friendly and ‘can do’ attitude.

Thank you Ben!

AE Banerjee –  17/168 Falcon Street, Crows Nest

I can’t speak highly enough of the Marriott Lane office in Crows Nest, particularly their agent Ben Janson. They went above and beyond to completely exceed my expectations.

After dealing with multiple real estate practices across Sydney over the years these guys are one of the best.
Highly recommended.

Nathan Cripps – Prospective Tenant

Mr. Ben Janson is the Portfolio Manager, of Marriott Lane Real Estate Agency, that manages my unit 14/112 Shirley Road, Wollstonecraft. N.S.W. 2065.

I have found Ben to be exemplary as a professional who manages every aspect of my rental unit. He communicates with me all the time before going ahead with any concerns relating to the unit.

I believe he goes above and beyond what his duties require, as indicated by his action in the recent time when he helped with negotiating an insurance issue on my unit with the insurance company on my behalf, which was successful.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Ben to anyone who wishes their unit to be managed in the rental market.

Annie Willis – 21/112 Shirley Road, Wollstonecraft

Ben might be new to Marriott Lane but he’s done such an excellent job already. He’s easily contactable and responsive. In just a short time Ben has quickly understood my unit, the history of repairs and maintenance, the dates and details, he’s on top of it. Just plug and go!

Willie Leay – 5/71 Shirley Road, Wollstonecraft

Hi Georgina,
I just wanted to take a minute to say how much I appreciate the prompt responses I always receive from you. Your efficiency is very much valued and I speak from experience when I say that it is unusual to get such good service from a rental property manager. You make owning a rental property leased through you and your team very simple and pleasant, so once again,  thank you very much.

Peter Webber – 2/2B Milner Crescent, Wollstonecraft

I selected Marriott Lane to handle the sale of my property as I had dealt with the agency previously. I’ve found Wayne Marriott to be very helpful, easy to talk to and always gives great advice. There were more buyers interested in the property than I had anticipated.

S Allwright – 17/7 Hampden Road, Artarmon

Marriott Lane literally went the extra mile to achieve a very good and prompt result. It’s been a pleasure to have dealt with the firm.

Andy Stucken – 18 Tobruk Avenue, St Ives

Matthew Hanlon has managed my property at Christie Street Wollstonecraft for the past 3 years while I have been overseas.

I have found Matthew to be very professional and helpful. He has consistently provided regular inspection reports and the house inspection videos
assessing each room throughly has been greatly appreciated as it has given me an opportunity to clearly see the condition of my home.

I recommend Matthew to assist you with your property management requirements, has a professional attitude and secured appropriate tenants to look after my home. Thanks again for all your help. 

Rachael Fysh, 8/32 Christie Street Wollstonecraft

Matt has been extremely helpful through the process of renting our first apartment.

From our first meeting, Matt exuded professionalism and we were confident that he was the right guy for the job.

Matt was able to find a great tenant very quickly (in the first week) and kept us in the loop at all times, in addition to taking care of ALL the administration including management of bills, etc. With the way Matt operates you would think your property is the only one he manages as he’s super responsive and available – something very important for us as we move overseas.

Overall, the process was simple & seamless.

We highly recommend Matt.

Stephen delivers on every promise!

Sovann and I are very thankful to Stephen the whole team at Marriott Lane Team for a providing a great result with the sale of our unit in Artarmon. Stephen, the extra effort you have personally put in to achieve this result which is a block record and probably one of the highest prices for a two bedroom unit to date. The 1000 extra leaflets and the window cleaning, thank you for being so generous. We are glad we listened to you with styling.

Thank you so much Stephen, you are really the best agent we’ve had the pleasure of dealing with.

Rebecca & Sovann – 3/3 Robert Street, Artarmon

A great agent! I was very impressed by Stuart’s expertise and commitment to the sale of my property. He always displayed high professional standards and ethics. I felt totally supported throughout the whole process. It was very evident that his knowledge of the current market, his communication skills with not only myself but also the potential buyers resulted in a good price for my property. I have no hesitation in recommending him highly to future sellers.

Leila Walker – 24/14-16 Carr Street, Waverton

Stuart & Georgina made the whole experience a pleasure. Marriott Lane have managed my property for almost 20 years. Great professional service and advice. It was easy to have them sell the property when the time came. Again great advice and helped with everything.

Kevin Joyce – 39/2 Rodborough Avenue, Crows Nest

One of the Best. I purchased a property that was marketed by Stuart. He is quite a genuine real estate agent, and he is always a pleasure to deal with. Stuart is extremely helpful in every aspect of the purchase process. His communication skills are exemplary, and his promptness in responding to any queries, is outstanding!

Mogambo – 39/2 Rodborough Avenue, Crows Nest

Definitely one of the best agents to work with. Stuart is one of the most professional people I have ever worked with. He confidently & competently took care of everything keeping me informed of all matters as we progressed. I secured a fantastic price & outcome which is mainly due to the way Stuart conducted the campaign. I have employed several hundred people in my life & would rate Stuart’s customer service skills & communication amongst the highest I have come across. I cannot rate & recommend Stuart highly enough. if you are either buying or selling do yourself a big favour & engage Stuart – he takes all the worry & hassle out of the process. He is a true pleasure to work with!

Adrian Emery – 8/1 Gillies Street, Wollstonecraft

I am very pleased to have Shant Komchian as our property manager as he has shown utmost professionalism in all that he does for us. We had a bad experience with another property management company but Shant has given me peace of mind in contrast. He has been efficient in handling all property matters from leasing to managing issues with our tenants, property maintenance and best of all rental increases. Our properties are regularly inspected and complete reports with photos are always send through quickly. At all times, he has been cool headed, responsible and reassuring in his responses which I value a lot. I would not hesitate in recommending Shant to manage any rental property.

R Tachjian – Landlord of 2 properties

Before I’d decided to take up an overseas posting and lease my Artarmon apartment, I had heard about unsatisfactory property management from other people and was wary of what I might experience. However, I was fortunate to engage Marriott Lane five years ago and having Shant Komchian as property manager through several leases.

Shant is personable and thoroughly professional in the way he goes about his business, whether it is routine property inspection, lease renewal, effecting repairs or assistance renewing furnishings at the property. Nothing has ever been too much trouble and my rental income has always been assured. In addition, Shant has back-up from very efficient admin people within Marriot Lane, who have ensured delivery of accurate and timely statements.

My business relationship with Shant and Marriott Lane is only coming to an end because I am selling up and staying overseas. I sincerely wish Shant the very best in his future endeavours and can wholeheartedly recommend this team to anyone requiring competent property management.

Nigel Jones – 2/5-7 Parks Road, Artarmon

From the get go Stephen was both friendly and professional! When we first inspected the property, Stephen had a high knowledge of the property itself, plus the local area and other auctions which were going on. He was incredibly helpful both before and during the auction and once we had won he assisted us greatly during the settlement period also. He was always easily contactable if we had any queries and we would highly recommend him as an agent!

Fiona Bulbrook – 8/74 Bay Road Waverton

Stephen and Stuart were extremely professional in the sale of our unit. They worked extremely hard and achieved a building record sale price. Stephen communicated through the whole process, providing advice and guidance at every step.

I would recommend Stephen and the team to anyone looking for an honest hardworking agent.

Paul and Rebecca – 38/1 Wiley Street, Chippendale

Matthew has been my rental representative for a number of years. He is FANTASTIC. He is always one step ahead, thinks strategically about how to position the your property, presents it beautifully and has a great instinct for picking great tenants.

Beyond this, Matt is a great human and it has been wonderful to work alongside him over the years and I’m sure there will be many more to recommend.

There are few people I recommend as highly as Matthew Hanlon.

Charmaine Bingwa – 1/115 High street, Kirribilli

We’ve found Stephen to be professional, knowledgeable and genuine. His approachable and responsive qualities has kept us informed at all times, and helped us decide on the purchase of our new home relatively stress free. Thank you Lilly, Aziz, Tamara & Maecy

Lilly & Aziz – 2/5-7 Parkes Road, Artarmon

Stephen O’Sullivan has secured a sale price for my Artarmon apartment which just topped price range expectations. He used polite persistence in maintaining contact with the interested parties during the pre-auction weeks and provided me with good advice in evaluating the firm offers received, resulting in a very satisfying sale before auction. My living overseas was not an impediment to effective communication between Stephen and myself.

I have been very happy with the property management provided by Marriott Lane; having researched the local real estate agencies, it was a natural decision to stay with Marriott Lane and engage Stephen for the sale process. The apartment was very well presented for sale and Stephen presided over the various repairs and instalments in a calm and timely fashion once the property was vacated.

Overall, the sale process conducted by Stephen was a pleasant experience and I can wholeheartedly recommend his services.

Nigel Jones – 2/5-7 Parkes Road, Artarmon

Dear Shant and Wayne

I am writing to express my great satisfaction with the property management service provided to me by Marriott Lane and Shant in particulars. Shant and the agency have been providing a very good service in managing my appartment in North Sydney in the last 3 years. But I realised just how important to have this good service when the building of my unit undergone some construction works for some structural damage repairmen for almost a year. The works resulted in significant discomfort and issues for my tenant and for myself during this period; but the reliable, timely and conscious services provided by Shant and your agency helped me be able to retain the tenant and get through it much better than otherwise. Shant is also helping me manage some internal works within the apartment such as changing the floor and reprinting. I rely 100% on his capable hands and good recommendations to manage this project, making it a simple and cost effective exercise for me.

I will certainly engage Shant and Marriott Lane for my future investment properties and have no hesitation in recommending the services to any future customers of yours. Thank you for the great works!

Claire Phan -31/236 Pacific Highway, Crows Nest

As both an investor and a rental tenant, I regularly deal with Matt Hanlon in two very different capacities and I can say that both he and all the staff at Marriott Lane conduct themselves impeccably and provide the best service I’ve ever had from a realestate.

From the rental perspective, Matt is always available and acts fast to resolve any issues that arise.

As a property manager, Matt always finds a way to act in my best interests as a landlord, while also keeping the tenants happy.

The leasing process is fast and very professional, with excellent photography. Tenant selection is done with a lot of care, and the regular inspections are thorough.

Having been with a number of other realestates in the past, I’m very happy having finally found Marriott Lane. Highly recommended.

Matt Handel, 58/236 Pacific Highway, Crows Nest

I know we’re not at settlement yet, but I just wanted to thank you in the interim for all the hard work you have put in regarding the sale of my property. I very much appreciated your guidance through the process.

Based on your experience and knowledge of the area you gave me excellent advice and i’m so pleased I followed it! It was a great result. I’m still in shock!

Judith French – 8/74 Bay Road, Waverton

When we first decided to lease out our family townhouse, 3 years ago, we all felt very sad, stressed and uneasy. It’s a comfortable home but just not big enough for our growing up families. At that time, we did contact a few other agents to come for inspections. None was to my satisfactory, except Mr Mathew Hanlon.

My first impression on him was that he was the right person that I could trust to hand over my baby (our very first family home) to. A few years down the track, it proves that he is such a dedicated and efficient young professional. He screened and chose the right and good tenant for us. I never have any issue with my tenant.

Mathew also carried out thorough routine inspection with video graphics email to me so I could see the exact conditions of our property without physically being there. Besides, he also carried out periodic rental review for us. We did not even have to request. Good job Mathew.

Recently, my tenant moved out after more than 3 years staying, surprisingly our property was left in an order almost exactly like when we left. It is so clean, neat and tidy. My baby still looks very lovely.

Thank you very much Mathew you have done such a marvelous job for us. I always know that our property is in the right hand. We appreciate your help and assistance so much and would hope to continuously maintain this good relationship.

Josephine Ting, 15/12 Eric Road Atarmon 

As Phil assists me in selling my property, I want to thank you for managing my property over the past few years. You have been the best property manager I have had at Marriott Lane over the past 10 years by a country mile. Thank-you for always being pleasant even when I have been annoyed, always being prompt in your responses & always following through.

I wish you the very best in both your personal & professional endeavours.

Fatima Karmali – 1112/8 Brown Street, Chatswood

Shant manages two investment properties for me and I would not hesitate to recommend his services. He quickly secures good tenants, ensures the rent is collected on time and he efficiently resolves maintenance and repair issues. Shant is only ever a phone call away and he is a pleasure to do business with. His clear communication style makes the whole process of renting out my investment properties very easy.

With Shant as my property manager, I have peace of mind that my properties are in the best possible hands.
