Guy Saddleton Licensed Real Estate Agent

We have nothing but praise for the efforts made by Guy and team when we were purchasing our new home. Guy showed unflagging energy and was so indefatigable on behalf of our vendor that we have decided to request his services when we sell another property of ours in the near future.

No request made by us as potential purchasers was too much for ever-helpful Guy. The other members of the team are also very pleasant and helpful.

As first home buyers and also buying from interstate, we could have been faced with a daunting and possibly risky task of buying "blind". However, from our first inquiry to settlement day Guy Saddleton and his wonderful team proved that it could be easy and stress free, showing us no end of support and a highly personal service.

Many thanks to Guy, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend your services to our family and friends and look forward to future interactions.

Guy Saddleton Licensed Real Estate Agent

My goal was to buy a property in Bellingen while negotiating the sale of my property in Sydney, and to try and coordinate the two steps as closely as possible. Patience and discretion were shown by Guy Saddleton throughout this process. I was particularly touched by the personal care and attention to detail. He was a delight to deal with and gave me confidence at all times that matters would resolve well. And they did! A great effort.

Guy Saddleton Licensed Real Estate Agent

Dear Guy,

Now that I’ve settled in Western Australia I feel compelled to drop you a line to say thank you for the way that you looked after the selling of my property in Thora, THANK YOU.

I have bought and sold numerous properties around Australia over the past 30 years, therefore am well aware that if you get the wrong agent involved in selling a property you can end up with dramas, and there was not one negative issue with any member of your team.

Guy, the most important aspect to me was that you were realistic when it came to the appraisal of the property prior to listing with you. The decision to list with you was done after researching the various agents throughout the valley. In addition to that, when I purchased the property in 2008 we became aware of the fact that you had less listings than other agents, however you had more sold signs than most. The great thing was achieving a sale price almost to the thousand dollars of what you said I would. Yahoo!

The interesting thing is that there are properties still for sale that I looked at six years ago, obviously they are too expensive, and that’s where your expertise and knowledge of the local area is a true indication you know the market in the Bellingen and surrounding districts.

Once again, well done Guy for another successful sale.
My sincerest thanks.

Geraldine Anderson

Excellent exposure and great photography!

Guy Saddleton Licensed Real Estate Agent

I believe listing our house with Guy Saddleton is the reason our property has sold, particularly in this extremely flat Real Estate market. The professionalism we were shown together with excellent exposure and great photography gave us the confidence to stay positive. With friendly, efficient service and Guy's skilful negotiating we were bound to sell. Thanks to Guy Saddleton for everything you did.

Debbie Young

Guy Saddleton is very professional. He helped us put the right price on our property, which sold within a couple of weeks of being listed. His photographer did an amazing presentation of the property for the website. We would happily recommend Guy Saddleton to anyone genuinely wishing to sell their property.

This is just great service.

This is just great service.

Guy Saddleton Licensed Real Estate Agent

My family owned a home in the Bellingen and we decided, for personal reasons, to sell the property. As my family had brought the property through Guy Saddleton and they were very happy with the great service, and excellent web site, I decided to let Guy sell the property. I work for a very large American earthmoving manufacturer and I travel extensively throughout Asia, Africa, and now Canada and I live and work out of Tianjin city in northern China. I had never even met Guy or any of his team until the property was sold and I was in Australia, but the service I received was fabulous.

Guy emailed me on a regular basis (they even emailed me the advertisements for my property), the website is just great with the virtual ‘walk through’, and he and his team know the Bellingen area because they all live and work there. Their families are there and that can make a big difference when it comes to Real Estate. Guy negotiated a great price for me - I would have accepted a lower offer. He also arranged for quotes to be done, as well as inspections and pest spraying, all while I was travelling the world with my job. He did all the hard work - it just doesn’t get any better than that.

This is just great service. So when you need to buy or sell real estate in the Bellingen area, do yourself a big favour and call Guy . You won’t be disappointed and neither will your wallet!

Guy Saddleton Licensed Real Estate Agent

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Guy for his overall professionalism and enthusiastic manner throughout the recent sale of my late brother's home. At each and every step he was helpful, available and thoughtful, considering our needs above all else. I greatly appreciated his sound advice regarding many aspects of our campaign including advertising, timing and presentation. The regular updates were reassuring, particularly concerning the inspections and offers of interest.

The price we achieved for my brother's home was great and the process ran smoothly, due in large part to his hard work.

Thank you once again.

With Kind Regards, Gary

I just wanted to congratulate you.

Guy Saddleton Licensed Real Estate Agent

I am a real estate rep in Western Australia (left Repton many years ago to come to live in Perth). I just wanted to congratulate you on your beautiful website. All your properties are beautifully presented and I enjoy what you write about them.

I am dreaming of one day returning home. Until that day, I will continue to check your website and to share it with others via various social media. You are certainly doing it differently – and this draws me back to your website time and time again!

Well done Mr Saddleton!

I am very happy to have chosen Guy Saddleton to handle the sale of my property in Bellingen. Guy and his team persevered diligently to successfully find a buyer in the most difficult of times.

While the property was on the market, I was regularly kept informed about all things relevant via a weekly email update and personal telephone briefings which were appreciated considering the fact that I reside in Malaysia.

Refreshing...Results!

Guy Saddleton Licensed Real Estate Agent

Refreshing.........Results

How rare is it in this day and age to find a real estate agent that delivers on all their promises and exceeds your every expectation?

Ours was a difficult proposition: we passionately believed in our home and all the work we had done to elevated it to exceptional levels but were pushing the boundaries of what could be achieved in town and in a depressing market.
Guy listened, believed in us, took in carefully the flavour of the house and sat late one evening on the veranda painstakingly drafting his appraisal.

The inspections were courteously planned and executed and clients well screened beforehand which meant that out of 3 inspections, all expressed delight and genuine interest.
The third inspection offered full price and negotiations were made easy and pleasant.

Guy was always in the loop and kept us totally informed at all times

We are almost in shock at having achieved all we could have hoped for only a month or so since the property was listed, but take away one priceless asset as well, total satisfaction on all levels.

Congratulations!

Congratulations!

Guy Saddleton Licensed Real Estate Agent

I have never been so full of admiration for such a masterful sales presentation as the one I have just witnessed. You have both chosen very wisely in the choice you have made, no doubt many hours of deliberation went into the final decision and I am sure you will have no regrets.

You can both surely rest in complete confidence that your agent will do his best in all avenues and that in itself is a great benefit. Don't hesitate to ask for feedback from customer comments and keep your special agent on his toes with ideas and tell them of your co-operation with what he may suggest. It's all so exciting, makes me want to start all over again!!! At 87? NO WAY!!

We are eternally grateful.

In any relationship trust is everything.

In any relationship trust is everything.

Guy Saddleton Licensed Real Estate Agent

No Trust - no relationship. In 2008 we bought a property through Guy Saddleton Real Estate (GSRE) and in November 2010 they sold that property for us. When we bought we were impressed by Guy's primary responsibility to the vendor. Some agents quickly forget the vendor and take the buyer's side or discount to get the sale. Guy's attitude was 'this is what the property is calculated to be worth and this is what it should sell for'. We paid full price when we purchased and when we sold, we sold for full price.

We were confused and offended by how other agents wasted our time showing us properties at inflated Cinderella figures set by wishful vendors hoping to win the lottery. We found GSRE trustworthy and honest, and we like the way they market their business. Their presentation from business card, website, photography, office display and media presence is professional, slick and friendly. Their photography and description of properties accurately captures and conveys the feeling and good points of a property without falsehood or hyperbole.

We happily recommend Guy Saddleton Real Estate to everyone thinking of buying and selling real estate and we will certainly knock on his door whenever we are in the market.

Thank you Guy and team. You are legends.

Guy Saddleton Licensed Real Estate Agent

Guy Saddleton is a highly professional and trustworthy real estate agent that I would recommend to anyone seeking to buy or sell property, especially first time sellers like myself!

Guy was always respectful, reassuring and willing to listen to and address my concerns. He and his team were available to answer my questions (even the dumb ones) and kept me regularly informed of progress of the sale of my home.

It was no easy decision to sell the home I have loved and lived in for 28 years. Without the support and understanding of Guy and his team, it would have been virtually impossible. Speaking of which, the on line video and photographic presentation of my home was not only impressive, it was a work of art befitting the craftsmanship that went into my (ex) 100 year old home.

Thank you Guy and team. You are legends.

All aspects of the sale process flowed smoothly

Guy Saddleton Licensed Real Estate Agent

I would like to commend Guy and his team for their professional approach, good communication and knowledgeable attention throughout the process of selling of my home in Bellingen.

Guy provided me with well reasoned advice about the market, was positive and sensible about possible sale prices, and responded supportively at all times to my questions and concerns despite the challenge of a long settlement period. He ensured that I was aware of all the options open to me and was always respectful of my decision making process being available to talk things through or giving me space.

All aspects of the sale process flowed smoothly. Guy and his team communicated effectively and punctually with other professionals involved. Although I was interstate this was never a difficulty for them. In summary, their involvement in selling my home helped to remove much of the stress that can sometimes be present, and proved to be a positive and worry free experience.
