Terrific work

By C & A Roy in Avalon Beach

A few years ago my husband and I started taking short holidays in Australia and finally thought it might be time to settle there. Avalon was always our favourite spot and we planned a two month holiday in 2020 to search for a likely new home.

It was therefore a surprise to meet John Ireland of ONE AGENCY on the first day of our search and for him to suggest an apartment which might be of interest. Unexpectedly and above all our expectations it was the right size, in the right location and even the right price, John and his team then guided us through the formalities and the paperwork and within two months the apartment was ours !

Well done ONE AGENCY and many thanks !

Extremely helpful and forthcoming

By Jon & Sara in Avalon Beach

We were about to purchase a house in Avalon while still living abroad and needed to understand the rental market before we made our final decision. A couple of cold calls later and we got in touch with John. He was extremely helpful and forthcoming with all the information that we needed. Amazing service – and we were not even customers! John’s knowledge of the market and customer service is spot on – given the chance we would always recommend him.

A pleasure to deal with

By G Brookes in Rushcutters Bay

John and his team have been a pleasure to deal with during my purchase in Avalon. So much so that they will be managing the property for me while I rent it out to start with. Highly recommended. It’s not often you find an agent as lovely as John!

Listened well and offered great advice

By S&C Smith in Avalon Beach

My sister and I have been acting as joint attorneys on our mother’s estate since she took ill. We are often at times overwhelmed with the process of contracts, moving, selling items and mum’s care, and when good help is on offer it really makes a difference to us.
We were recommended to John Ireland real estate for the sale of mum’s apartment while we moved mum into care, and the recommendation has been an absolute blessing. The briefing process for the sale of mum’s property was quick, efficient and most of all kind and attentive to the difficult process at hand.

John listened to our sales needs, offered experienced feedback and agreed to a process that would work for all. He then found a buyer that was just right, and in record time. We were looked after the entire process from cleaning the apartment and moving furniture, to final sale. John is personable, friendly, efficient and best of all we had a great outcome – a sale in the right time and at the right price!

We thoroughly recommend John Ireland and his team from John Ireland real estate, and would not hesitate to provide a verbal reference if required!

Magician of a real estate agent

By L Egan in Avalon Beach

John, Just a note to say thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into selling unit 3, Pittwater Palms. You just seem to make it happen so quickly without any fuss or bother. You kept me informed about every aspect of the sale for which I am very grateful. I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your agency should anyone ask for the name of a reliable and trustworthy Real Estate Agent in the Northern Beaches area. Again many thanks.

Could not recommended him highly enough

By D & D Mundell in Avalon Beach

To anyone looking for a property manager we could not recommend John Ireland highly enough. He has managed our rental property at Newport where his level of communication with both the tenant and ourselves has been of the highest standard. No matter the time, John is always available and has dealt with issues after hours on a number of occasions, always in a friendly manner. We have found that with a smaller agency you really do get much more personalized attention with any issues being promptly attended to. If you are looking for an honest, friendly, local agent then we would highly recommend John.

Really impressed.
