September 2014“I acquired Larissa Reed of Payne pacific estate agents to sell my unit in Cronulla recently.

December 2013“I just have to tell you what a fantastic agent you are. I’ve said this many times but just want to do it formally. I’ve bought and sold 4 times and you are without a doubt the most professional, high achieving agent ever. You got me the asking price in about 5 weeks, which is amazing. Then you did the best publicity, even scoring me a feature in Domain! The price was a record for this street, with the exception of the house on the corner, which is a 2 storey. You gave me honest feedback after every opening. Even if our contract has formally ended, I will stay with you as I have never had such a top agent, My friends and family are also amazed at you. I tell everyone to sell through you and so far 2 are thinking of it. I’ll continue to do this because it’s true: you are honest, ethical , professional and you get top dollars! Cannot ask for more. Please use this testimonial in any way at all.Best regards,”Louise – Bundeena.  DSC_0161-f-2
November 2013“The thought of selling my unit was scary until I sat down with Larissa Reed. Her professional and friendly approach made me feel so comfortable and eager to get the ball rolling. Her motivation to sell my unit was obvious in the results, with the unit selling within 4 days on the market. Larissa would call me everyday to give me an update on how the unit was progressing and this made me feel confident that my property was in good hands. She is professional, friendly and hard working and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking at selling.”Paula – Sans Souci.  paula mav
September 2013“Step aside Harry Potter, there’s a new wizard in town and her name’s Larissa Reed.When we were looking for a real estate agent to handle the sale of our Bundeena property, my instinct told me that she was the one for us. We spoke to several agents, and what set Larissa apart from all of them was her optimism and her progressive ideas on marketing etc.(Unfortunately, others agents were not so positive eg we were told that we’d be waiting 12months on average to sell, we’d be lucky to get $600k, the location being one back from the beach was not as desirable, etc etc. Pretty demoralising.)But Larissa was happy, enthusiastic, positive, without being over the top and most importantly, realistic.“I love my job” she said and I know this know to be the case.

The thing I really liked was that she was quietly optimistic without any big aggressive sales pitch to us.

And she didn’t let us down – her communications with us were brilliant – she kept us up to date with all parties who were interested in our property. Any questions we had were promptly addressed, and this was such a revelation for us, so different from previous (property) experiences.

I don’t know how she did it, and that’s why I think she’s an absolute wiz, but after the first open house we had offers coming in.

The result was that we sold our house in the first week of its being on the market, and at a much higher price than we ever dreamed possible. It all went through seamlessly too.

I cannot praise her enough, and I’m truly grateful to her.

Larissa……thank you.”

September 2013“Larissa, I just wanted to thank you for all the hard work and effort you put into our sale. I’m sure it was your fabulous marketing strategy with professional photos and a video that made our property stand out in a great advertising campaign. Then end result was both a very happy seller and I gather the buyers were equally impressed. I would certainly like to recommend you to any other prospective clients you may be working on and would be happy to talk to them if you wish.”Graeme, Woronora Heights – Seller“I very much appreciated your service as a Real Estate Agent on my purchase of 1 Mallard Street Woronora Heights. Both yourself and your office were always accessible and  you did all possible to ensure the smooth transition of the sale. This prompt and pleasant approach was to the benefit of both your client’s the vendors and myself as the purchaser. Once again I thank you for your kind assistance.”

In addition Larissa’s friendly and caring nature has made the process of selling my home comfortable and easy.”Angela – Alfords Point – Seller“Thanks Larissa and to all the team at Payne Pacific, due to your patience and understanding during the sale process we were able to secure our new home.

September 2013“We would like to thank you Larissa in selling our home.  When we first met you at another property that you were selling, we instantly noticed your professionalism and honesty.  So we really had no hesitation in asking you to sell our family home of 16 years.When the time came to enlist your skills, even though it was a bit rushed, you acted professionally and nothing was too much trouble, and within 2 days it was on the market.It was only a matter of days after our first open house that you sold our home.  We could not believe the price that you achieved for us, far exceeding any expectations we had.  And in actual fact, it is now the highest selling house in our street, smashing all previous records.We would highly recommend you, Larissa, to anyone who wishes to sell their home.  Thank you again.”Neil and Jackie – Engadine(Pictured right, the happy buyers)  raymond buyers-001
August 2013“Larissa Reed recently sold my investment property at South Cronulla. As I am extremely busy, I appreciated that she just got on with the job of marketing and selling the property, making the process stress-free for me. The apartment sold after the first open house for a price above asking. I am very happy with the result and with the professional manner in which it was undertaken. I would recommend Larissa as an agent to any potential seller.”Matt – Cronulla.  parra sold
June 2013“Larissa Reed was a pleasure to deal with. She was helpful, friendly, prompt and diligent in all of our dealings with her, representing her vendors with professionalism, while also making us feel valued as potential buyers. Once we had signed the contract, Larissa kept in touch throughout the process, making us feel at ease, and was only too happy to answer questions throughout. We’d have no hesitation in recommending Larissa to vendors and buyers alike. “Scott and Ruth – Barden Ridge.  17-thomas-mitchell-drive-buyers-835x1024
June 2013“When we recently put our home on the market We chose Larissa Reed from Payne Pacific. Larissa  had submitted her selling  proposal to us amongst 10 other local agents. It turned out to be an easy and great choice. She had taken by far a higher effort  and a more personal response in the process.Once we engaged Larissa she was spot on with her marketing, communication and personality  All our friends agreed how great the house looked in the marketing photos and video. Our home sold within two weeks at a great market price. We love our home and we were very comfortable having Larissa in our home and she is welcome any time.  We couldn’t be happier.My wife and I are only too happy to recommend Larissa Reed as the estate agent of choice to sell your home. Many thanks Larissa”David and Sue – Kirrawee.  kirra
April 2013“Hi Larissa, thank you for all your hard work which went to making today so successful. We’ve never had 10 families in a day before. Must be your great marketing. All the best, enjoy the rest of your Easter break.”Barb Minogue – Bundeena.  baker st
January 2013“Larissa Reed  worked on the sale of my house at 37 Beachcomber Ave. The market there is a difficult one and it took some time to make a sale. I spent time and money on painting, new carpet and other aesthetic aspects of the house. At the time I was living in Bali and I was often away. I returned to Bundeena around August 2012 to find that someone had styled the entire house for me – at no cost to myself. It made a huge difference to the house (which was unoccupied at that time) and I’m sure was key in us ultimately making a sale. It transpired that Larissa had taken it upon herself to do the styling – at her own cost. In my opinion this takes ‘going the extra mile’ for a client to a whole new level. I was very, very. Impressed. I also had the pleasure of meeting Larissa on two occasions and was very impressed with her professionalism and enthusiasm. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone wishing to sell their house!”Richard – Bundeena           
Januray 2013“Dear Larissa, Thank you for your efforts in finally securing a sale for our house at 22 Baker St. After a long campaign the fruits of your labour eventually paid off. Just wanted to say a big thankyou to you and Shelly. It was great to work with you, your friendly and professional approach was just what was needed. Good luck for the rest of the busy summer season”Glenn – Bundeena.
