I sold my apartment in Rose Bay through Violet and Craig, and couldn’t be happier with the result. They knew the market and worked hard to get me the best result, setting a building record in the process. They were both extremely helpful and always happy to explain and offer guidance. I found them to be transparent and easy to deal with at all times. I look forward to our next sale with McGrath Double Bay!

David Lee, Vendor

I cannot thank you both enough for all your assistance and service you provided. All our enquiries, queries and numerous questions were dealt with in a professional, yet courteous manner. Your office is so efficient and I would always receive a prompt response and updates on the state of our sale, which was dealt with in such a small space of time. Then to receive such a great outcome at the Auction was fantastic. Thank you both again and it has been a pleasure dealing with McGrath at Double Bay.

Janice Conway, Vendor

Thanks for the hard work you & the team put in today under very uncomfortable conditions. It was like getting blood from a stone but you got there, with what I consider to be a good and fair price. Thanks so much for your expertise and professionalism.

Jan Quinlan, Vendor

Dealing with Craig & Violet has been a great experience. They were so helpful, friendly & knowledgeable when purchasing our new apartment. We'd recommend them to anyone.

Sam & Maria, Buyers

Team Pontey conducted a terrific campaign, commencing with the initial plan of attack, through to the development of marketing material, organisation of appointments, dealing with the tenants and property manager for inspections, providing regular updates of progress, and getting prospective purchasers to the auction. As for the auction itself, it was to me, a textbook exemplar: pre-auction discussion of the strategy. having an auctioneer with personality who injected varying pace and humour; and ultimately a very solid result. There is no doubt Craig, that your years of experience, knowledge and expertise in this market went a long way in securing a pleasing outcome.

Amanda L'Estrange, Vendor

We can't thank or recommend Craig, Warren, Claudia, Sophie, and the rest of the team more. Selling our family home after 21 years was an extremely emotional process. The team was so caring and accommodating of our family's wishes. We will miss their daily communication. Craig purchased the property for us and it was special to have him represent us again. One week on the market and one inspection later, we couldn't be happier. Craig and Warren worked extremely hard to get us the best possible result. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing the new owners enjoy many special memories at 63 Village High Road Vaucluse.

Tanya & Rob, Vendors

Thanks again for attaining such an awesome result for the house at auction last night. Your professionalism throughout the campaign reinforced the fact that our decision to appoint the ‘best in the Eastern suburbs’ was the correct one. Awesome job, thanks again.

Murray and Stuart, Vendors

I am actually pleased to write this testimonial for Craig. The mere fact that I have done this for a high end residential sales agent speaks for itself! He is very personable, professional, knowledgeable, patient and obliging.

Dr Jerry Schwartz - BUYER & VENDOR

Craig Pontey is THE agent for the premium end of the market. Apart from the respect and sensitivity he afforded our 85 year old mother, the key differentiator for us was his analysis and targeting strategy using his extensive database. The whole process dealing with his expansive team was seamless. The auction resulted in a premium, achieving well over 30% beyond our expectations. He is one of the most talented real estate operators that I've had the pleasure to working with.

Susan MacDonald - Vendor

Thank you Craig for your time, professional advice and patience to get this sale over the line. The beautiful gift was also well received! Please thank Violet for her time and energy too - her input has been valuable.

Joy Wiley - Vendor

It was a pleasure to meet Violet. Violet kept us up-to-date with all the details of potential buyers and their feedback in relation to the property.

Ignatius Pergamalis - Vendor

My experience with Craig was a very positive one. I was very happy with the way Craig conducted the marketing for the property and the continual feedback we received from potential buyers. Craig is a real gentleman and it was a pleasure to meet him.

Maria Piperitis - Vendor

Craig, thank you so very much for the absolutely stunning bunch of flowers I received this afternoon, they are just divine! My family and I are absolutely thrilled with the outcome you achieved and I know my Aunt would have felt the same way. You have been very kind and professional throughout the process, and most definitely the right man for the job without a doubt! On behalf of the whole family, thank you again. All the best.

Nicole Phelan

I wanted to reach out and say how much I appreciated the opportunity to hear you speak at the RISE conference. I got a lot out of what you had to say and admire the way you have run such a successful business. I always cherish the chance to surround myself with legends of the industry and Christchurch is definitely a career defining moment for me.

Bailey Abela

I have known Craig for nearly 40 years, firstly as a Vendor on the sale of 110 Campbell Parade, Bondi in 1993 and more recently in 2016 to sell the same property for a second time. It’s difficult to trump perfection - keeping the Vendor well informed with the absence of pressure is essential. Craig and his team tick all the boxes
