"Brad displayed a professional & positive attitude that I have never experienced with other agents. When time came for negotiations, I instinctively knew to leave the process to Brad. He kept us informed every step of the way, but went beyond the call of duty to achieve a result beyond our expectations.
I personally know many agents in the Eastern suburbs but when it came to selling our own home we would only use Brad. In Brad you have guaranteed commitment and the best possible chance of selling your property."
Martin Kass - Chaleyer St, Rose Bay
"Brad lives and breathes the business and his passion for real estate comes through loud and clear, as does his thorough knowledge of the area and the market. He is a consummate professional.

"Mr Caldwell-Eyles was careful to present all of the options available to us clearly and unambiguously, suggested a genuine sale price which reflected the true value of the property and, unlike other agents, did not pressure us into pursuing a strategy with which we felt uncomfortable. He explained contractual arrangements in a transparent manner, and maximised advertising opportunities without incurring excessive costs. I am delighted to say that we achieved an excellent outcome with the sale of the property, exceeding our 'best-price' expectations. I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Caldwell-Eyles and, should the opportunity arise, will certainly choose him as my agent in the future"

"We have known Brad for three years during which time he has acted as agent for the sale of two properties, assisted in the purchase of another and given advice on the potential sales achievable on several development projects. In all dealings we have had with Brad we have found him to be the antithesis of the stereotypical Real Estate Agent for he is unfailingly courteous, considerate and patient; giving all necessary assistance and guidance whilst never making one feel pressured. He always has time to listen to any concern you may have and his honesty and trustworthiness are beyond reproach.
We will certainly want Brad to act for us in any future real estate matter and have no hesitation in recommending him as a fine gentleman and a first rate professional in his chosen field of endeavour."
Arnold van Rooijen - Carrington Ave, Bellevue Hill

Dr Herbert Sternberg - Bundarra Rd, Bellevue Hill

We also thank you for making yourself available at all times, even after hours and on Sundays. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends and family if and when they are considering buying or selling property. Please keep in touch."
Larry & Katie Narunsky - Hardy St, North Bondi
"We were truly fortunate to have Brad as our agent. While most real estate agents are pushy, Brad is just the opposite. We found him to be not only consistently polite and friendly, he is rarity in the real estate business - he is sincere. We really appreciate the fact he was straight forward from the beginning to the end of the sale. Brad was professional and organised. He was also available and helpful at all times, and simply just a really likeable guy."
Heidi Ahrens - Cnr Edward & Lucius St, Bondi Beach
"Thank you for the support before, during and after the sale of my sister's unit at Elizabeth Bay. It could have been a much more stressful time especially living in another state, but Brad you were very understanding and communicated either via phone or e-mail after each 'open for inspection', thus keeping me very well informed on how the campaign was going. I was delighted with the result and feel as though I have gained a friend and have recommended you to anyone who was willing to listen. Thank you again Brad."
Julie Fithie - Holdsworth Ave, Elizabeth Bay
"I had first spoken to Brad 2 years ago when I was seeking some market advice. I had noticed that your team had sold a number of properties around my unit. When I contacted Brad he clearly had a very good knowledge of the block in which my unit was situated and of the surrounding area.
Having inspected the unit, he gave me a realistic estimate of what it was likely to sell for. Within a couple of weeks, the property was sold at a price that I was very happy with. Brad kept me informed throughout the process and discussed several offers with me. He was always accessible and responded efficiently to requests. If I were to sell another property in the area, I would have no hesitation in choosing Brad to act as my agent."
Helen Lee - Birriga Rd, Bellevue Hill
"Just a short note on behalf of myself and Elita to say thankyou for selling our unit. To sell a property as you did within a week and to get exactly the price I wanted is a credit to you and your office. I have found in any business knowing your product is half the job, the rest is customer service and integrity. It is obvious you possess all of these qualities.
I would not hesitate to use your services again, and would be pleased to recommend you to anyone else considering selling their property."
Jason Field - Birriga Rd, Bellevue Hill
"Brad guided us through our campaign with great enthusiasm & honesty. In his extremely professional approach to his work he was always friendly & helpful and gave us the right advice & very accurate evaluations and assessment of the market dynamics. I believe that Brad possesses both very high professional and interpersonal skills, which make him an outstanding personality in the real estate business. Certainly I would recommend him to anyone wanting to deal with any real estate matters."
Stefan Laux - Lucius St, Bondi
”I would like to thank you for facilitating the sale of our property in Rushcutters Bay. I am sure this was the result of your professionalism and extensive market knowledge, and I was particularly impressed by your tactful balance of dedication to both us as vendors and to the purchaser.
I am very pleased that in selecting you, you more than met with my expectations of ethical behaviour. I would also like to thank you for keeping me calm through what was a potentially nerve-wracking experience. Owen & I wish you good health, success and happiness.”
