EXCELLENCE IN ALL REAL ESTATE SERVICES!!!


The service we received from Kim Hammond at Dowling Real Estate Raymond Terrace was professional and ­­­courteous. We appreciated her personality, attention to detail and attitude when dealing with people of our age as we are both pensioners. She was willing to listen  and be attentive to what we required in all circumstances of our relocation from Tasmania to NSW. We thoroughly enjoyed the ‘house hunting’ buying experience and she had our full confidence. Thank you, Kate & Bill Morse 10/1/2017

 

“My husband and I had been looking for an investment property for some time now and have always seemed to of met Kim Hammond at different properties. We finally found one that suited our needs and Kim was there again to show us through the property. We always found Kim to be happy, flexible and accommodating towards hubbys work hours. There was a lot of communication through the exchange process and before. I appreciate any follow up calls Kim made to us advising us of the next step. This whole transition was smooth and stress free”. M & A Horton – Purchasers 14/09/2016

 

Craig kept me up to date during the whole process and was very pleasant to deal with. If you are looking for a straight -shooter, Craig is the one for you. Top work, thanks again Craig!! - Vendor Review - L Rowley 11/09/2016

 

Kim, the past few months have been quite a journey. Thank you for the way you guided us through the beginning of a very big step for us. Nothing was any trouble.

Thank you Dowling Raymond Terrace. The whole team was very professional, friendly and helpful. We experienced a few problems with the council while selling our house which Craig and Kim with their connection and their experience were able to sort out to allow us to sell our property in a short period. We are very happy with the sale and look forward to dealing with Dowling and their team in the future - Vendor Review by L & I Gobor 05/06/2016

 

We talked to a number of Real Estate Agents before asking Kim Hammond to handle our sale. We felt she had compassion and a good understanding of our situation and the real estate business. Kim handled all facets of our sale with cheerfulness, care and good knowledge of the business. She helped with any and all of our queries, conducted the open houses with grace and reported back to us after each significant step. Kim indicated through her references and her employer that they worked as a team and supported and discussed the sale. We are happy both with Dowling Real Estate Raymond Terrace & Kim as their agent. - Gary & benita Parker – Vendor 16 George St, Karuah 16/05/2016

 What more could I say but amazing! Both Craig and Kim were extremely professional, honest and caring when it came to the sale of my property. They kept me up to date with potential buyers and gave me honest feedback from the open homes. No question or query was ever too hard for them, and they were always happy to help. I appreciate all that they have done for me, making the sale of my house smooth and stress-free. Thank you Dowling. – L Saunders, vendor 14/11/2015

Kim, Kate and the team were great. Nothing was too much trouble. Emails and phone calls were responded to quickly and efficiently. Will definitely recommend to family and friends. Thanks for helping me purchase my first home! Bethany Lyons, Purchaser - 24/6/2015

 

Gregg, Neil and I are most grateful for your efforts associated with our property. you have gone above and beyond to assist in securing the tenant and we appreciate not only you ongoing work but the exceptional communication. We cannot thank you enough. Kind Regards, Robyn & Neil Canavan. 09/03/15

 

Kim always helped us with any request. Many times to look and re-look at property. Any questions we had, you enquired. Any measure & quotes we wanted for sheds, you helped out. And in the critical moments, you helped us get into the house early, when it was really needed by us. And when the vendor's went to their solicitor, you acted with speed & concern. We could not recommend more highly personally or to any business. M & M Gayler, Raymond Terrace - 10/2/2015

 

This is to say I was completely satisfied beyond my expectations wth the service received from Kim Hammand. She was available to answer all questions and queries on the sale of our home, if out on other work, she would anser as soon as possible. It was as though our place was the only one being sold by her. Kim has the most friendly nature which made it much more pleasant, thank you. K.Heggs - Vendor, Italia Road, Seaham 7/1/2015

 

All I can say is "Thank You Kim". She was always there from listenin gto me as to what I was looking for to finding the right home for me. There was so much controversy with the vendors and purchasers solicitors with the home we were selling and the one I was purchasing, I was always on the phone to her and she always sorted out what was needed and sometimes to the point with the others that it was annoying, but Kim always kept her cool and kept at it until there were answers. I can't fault Kim in any way and would recommend her to anyone. K.Heggs - Purchaser, Wahroonga St, Raymond Terrace 22/1/15

 

"Over the last 6 years I have been fortunate to have Kate manage my investment property which is situated in Raymond Terrace. In this time I have found Kate to be very efficient and professional in her work ethics. With any requests I have had from getting quotes, rental valuation, changes to end of month statement payments these have never been too hard for her. I have no hesitation in recommending potential Landlords to Kate as their Property Manager." Ms. P Williams

 

"I have been leasing my Duplex through Kate at Dowling Real Estate Raymond Terrace for the past few years; I have never had any issues and I have always been informed of any changes or concerns promptly. My mother has also been dealing with Dowling for over 20 years; bought and sold her house through Dowling and would NOT go to any other real estate. Dowling have made us feel like Family and are always willing to assist with anything."

"As we all know, buying a house can be either a good or bad experience, depending on what Real Estate Agent you use. I was fortunate enough to come across Kim Hammond who went out of her way to help me in every way she could. I found Kim to be professional and very easy to talk to, explaining the process clearly as we went along, taking the pressure off me so I could enjoy the whole experience. I highly recommend anyone wanting to buy a house to go and talk to Kim Hammond. Thanking you Kim." Ms. S Osland

 

"Kim Hammond was the agent that I dealt with at your office and I was very happy when I had to deal with her. She was so fast to call me back and did a lot of ringing around for me on the day I made the offer which was a Saturday and on top of that she was still working on a Saturday night which was awesome, especially when you are sitting at home waiting to hear about an offer. Kim was also very understanding that this was my first house and made me feel very comfortable as I didn't have much knowledge and was very supportive of that. Thanks!!! - Amy Jennings

 

From 1st meeting with Kim Hammond, my partner & I felt very comfortable and secure with her approach & ability. I have since purchased a home from Dowling Real Estate & have found both Kim & Craig Higgins most helpful with their knowledge & experience of the area. Also liaison with current owner & myself carried out with respect & professional conduct. I am more than happy to recommend their services to all - seeking real estate & sales etc "Most Satisfying Result" Thank you both!!! Joan Sinclair, Raymond Terrace - 30/08/2014

 

Having just sold my home though Dowling Real Estate Raymond Terrace, I can honestly recommend Craig Higgins & Kim Hammond as being the best team in the Port Stephens Area. I have sold a total of 7 properties over the years and have never had my needs met so well taken care of. I found Craig & Kim to be professional, friendly and straight forward in all of their communications with both myself and my purchasers. Dorothy Graham 10/12/14

 

Kim handled the sale of my father’s property with the greatest enthusiasm & determination. She even held our initial meeting on her day off! There were quite a few obstacles from the buyer but Kim handled these with diplomacy to ensure we didn’t lose the sale. She kept me in the loop and gave me progress reports. I am more than satisfied with the effort put in by Dowling RT. We had a few open house sessions & frequent newspaper advertising. I liked the notifications showing ads would go into the newspaper. I have dealt with Dowling before and continue to be impressed by their professional approach. G Kozary 24.12.2014
