What Our Clients Say

“We engaged Paul Hoare from Dowling Real Estate Lake Macquarie to manage the marketing and sale of our deceased estate property in Edgeworth. During the preliminary discussion Paul explained the various marketing options that were available to us together with the pros and cons of each option.

We were particularly impressed with Paul because he did not push us down one particular marketing strategy or sale process, but rather assessed our property and the potential purchaser demographic and provided us with his views on how best to ensure we maximised our sale opportunity through an effective marketing campaign coupled with each sale method.

Paul recommended that an auction was his preferred approach for our property as it provided a concise marketing period culminating in an auction and this would provide the best chance for us to maximise our sale opportunity. We took Paul’s advice and went with the auction and during the process Paul stood firm throughout the open house and marketing period recommending throughout that the interest shown made it important that we should not consider pre-auction offers and that we needed to ensure we progressed to auction. This proved to be valuable advice and ultimately our property sold at auction for a value we were happy with.

We have the utmost respect for the manner in which Paul guided us through the whole process, and we can confidently recommend Paul to any vendor looking to engage a professional, thorough, responsible and vendor focused estate agent.”

I have dealt with many real estate agencies over the years in both selling and buying and I would have to say that you are the best real estate agency I have used. Your prompt and courteous updates were excellent. Many thanks again and best wishes for the future.”

“We recommend Paul from Dowling Lake Macquarie if you are selling your house. We’ve completed four property sale transactions with Paul over the last 12 years. The service and area knowledge equalled a great result every time.”

Donna & Greg D

“We engaged Paul Hoare from Dowling Lake Macquarie to sell my aunt’s property for her. Right from the beginning of our association Paul was on time for every meeting and when it was decided to go to auction his team pulled out all the stops, from holding two open houses a week plus other viewing upon request. As we live in another state Dowling Lake Macquarie kept us up to date by frequent phone calls and e-mails. We trusted them completely and were repaid with an amazing auction that achieved $65,000 above reserve price. We highly recommend Paul to any prospective sellers for his client loyalty, determination and dedication.”

Jenny & Stephen

Kain B

“We engaged Paul to sell our property at Fletcher after interviewing 3 other local agents. His presentation, property research and marketing plans were far more superior than their opposition. Our decision to sell with them was confirmed with an excellent result and our property selling first day on the market for more then $20K more than anticipated. They were the only agency that showed a clear plan of how they were going to sell our property.”

Don and Lea

“Just a short note to thank you for your valuable service when we contacted Dowling Real Estate Lake Macquarie after deciding to sell our home and move into an over 55’s village nearby. We still hardly believe that after only 3 1/2 weeks you introduced the eventual buyer and we were able to go ahead straight away and plan to move into our chosen villa. Many thanks again Daryl, to you and Dowling Real Estate – we really appreciate your attention to the details of presentation with the open house visits conducted in such a respectful manner”
