What are people saying about their Northwood experience.

Peter and Michael Ernst, owners of Northwood Estate Agents were recommended to us by the Body Corporate Manager of one of the buildings in which we have an apartment, in Dulwich Hill.

We were immediately impressed by their professionalism, flexibility and willingness to go above and beyond their duties as estate agents.
Peter and Michael suggested that we update the look of the apartment in order to achieve a higher rental and eventual sale price.

They gave us suggestions as to how to improve the overall look of the apartment, and recommended reliable tradesmen and suppliers. With their assistance & on trend recommendations we completely modernised the apartment and had it on the market in less than two months, having repainted it, replaced carpets, put in new appliances, tapware, light fittings and splashbacks.
Their invaluable advice saved me time, effort and money and enabled me to manage the project and get it done it quicker as Peter & Michael had provided the detail.

Peter and Michael’s advice was to rent the Dulwich Hill apartment and postpone the sale, following their review of market sales trends. Peter & Michael quickly swung into action and found us great tenants at a higher rental. They were very thorough in their research & background checks of all the applicants.

We then asked Peter and Michael to take over the management of our other apartment in Waitara. Again, they found very reliable tenants in a very short time frame. This was quite an achievement given the downturn in the market with applicants having a lot to choose from and wanting to negotiate lower rents.

We consider Peter and Michael friends, not just our agents. They are always happy to catch up to review the situation of the apartments and the market and keep us informed of the details of the rental situation and contact with tenants.
We hold them in such high esteem, on both a business and personal level, that we have asked them to represent us at body corporate meetings.

I am incredibly impressed by the service I recently received by Northwood Estate Agent’s Peter Ernst. I am a relocations consultant, and my clients were very fortunate to find an apartment which was managed by Peter. I work closely with Property Managers all over Sydney and have never experienced such professionalism. Peter was extremely compassionate, effortlessly guiding my clients through the entire process.

Peter is a true professional, going out of his way to make the process of renting a property smooth and stress free. It is very rare to find anyone like this in the Sydney market, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Peter from Northwood Estate Agents to anyone thinking of selling or renting out a property.

Peter and Michael from Northwood work with a high level of integrity. As tenants, they always made us feel as though they genuinely cared and promptly attended to any concerns we had. I would not hesitate to rent with Northwood again!
— Manal
Northwood’s level of service is second to none. Peter and Michael have managed our property under successive tenants and have been exceptional in their professionalism, enthusiasm and ability to get great results. Our property was re-tenanted swiftly and at a higher than advertised price. We would highly recommend Northwood’s services.
