"Jimmy Chew sold me a property in Mt Roskill, in October 2014. I am happy to relate that at all times Jimmy’s communication and handling of proceedings were conducted in a thoroughly professional and highly respectful manner. I believe mine, as well as the vendor’s interests - were considered carefully and managed by Jimmy towards a very positive result. It is with great pleasure that I recommend Jimmy’s services as a real estate agent."

"I should like to thank you and the team at Blockhouse Bay for the successful conclusion to the sale of my property at 8 Geordie Street and especially to Craig Darroch who did an excellent job on the day and to Marjut Wood and Jimmy Chew who were very professional in guiding me through all aspects of the selling process from start to finish. Marjut and Jimmy kept me informed of the state of the market and gave invaluable advice on preparing the property for sale in order to achieve the best result. Their advertising in the various media was obviously effective judging by the interest they generated in the property. I was very impressed above all by their friendly low-key manner towards possible buyers and I feel that this approach achieved far more than an aggressive in-your-face selling technique. I have other property and would not hesitate in using their services again."
