"Simon has now sold for me on two occasions and on both occasions the entire experience was a complete success. The sale of my first property only came about due to Simon's focus on staying in touch with potential buyers and matched my property off-market for a great outcome.
With our recent sale Simon took control and drove the process from start to finish, handling all aspects from the presentation of the property through to negotiating the sale. Simon's strength is his communication skills, keeping us extremely well-informed and very much involved at every step.Simon is relaxed and easy to deal with, but also extremely professional, up to date with local market knowledge. Simon and his team are focused on providing terrific service. We would not hesitate in recommending him to others."

"We recently sold our house in Paddington and we were very pleased with our decision to use Simon. The house presented very well, buyer traffic exceeded our expectations, he was always available and communicated very well with us, and most importantly we felt that Simon did everything he could to get us a great outcome. We were very happy with the result and would recommend Simon to others."

"I recommended Simon to Betty, our 81 year old neighbour who needed to sell her home after a recent illness. Although I had not used Simon as an agent previously, I had sought his advice in the past. I had found Simon sincere and not self-servicing. Simon is a straight talker, realistic and without the upbeat market talk. Simon’s communication skills are excellent allowing Betty to have full comprehension of the marketing strategy and the auction process. His understanding of the sadness for Betty in selling the home her family had resided in for nearly 100 years is appreciated.
Simon achieved terms that now allows Betty to go forward in a timely manner to acquire a new property suitable to her needs. Betty and all who have assisted her since her illness could not have asked for a better person to have taken her on this journey. The fantastic sale result just adds to our appreciation of all Simon’s effort and displays the level of experience and professionalism Simon has. I wish Simon and his team every success in the future."

"Simon Doak’s expertise in Paddington is unrivalled. His market knowledge is matched with excellent communication, professionalism and above all integrity for both vendor and buyers. For what can be quite a stressful process, Simon and the 1st City team are enjoyable to work with. I would recommend Simon to anyone looking to sell a property in the Eastern Suburbs or a buyer seeking advice on where to purchase."
Paul Christie - 6 Cambridge St, Paddington
Simon from 1ST CITY were selected to mange the sale of my mothers apartment in Paddington. From our pre-contract meeting, through to their proposal, onto marketing and sale of the property, we were very impressed with the level of support we received. Their understanding at a difficult time for us was very much appreciated. Their communication with us throughout was faultless. We always felt in control while being appropriately guided. The 1ST CITY back office support was great, thanks to Rebecca and the team's diligence. We have no hesitation in recommending Simon, Kristy and the whole 1ST CITY team for any real estate sales.
Michael - 1B/4 Hampden Street, Paddintgon
Simon sold our previous home 10 years ago. He did a great job then so naturally we went back to him to sell this time. His professional, yet relaxed manner makes him very easy to deal with. We would highly recommend him!
