My wife and I recently decided to sell our investment property in Macquarie Street Mayfield. On the advice of a good friend of ours we engaged George and Kath McIntosh from Dotcom Property Sales as our selling agent.


George and Kath made the whole process so easy, painless, straight forward and fast. Right from the outset they advised us on all aspects of the sale. For example, what we should and shouldn’t do with the property at presale to enhance it’s selling potential and to maximize our gains. This advice saved us a lot of work and money that we would otherwise had needlessly spent.


George and Kath achieved a fantastic outcome for us with the property selling within days of it going on the market and at a price that we were extremely happy with!


The professionalism and knowledge of the team gave us great confidence in what they were doing for us. But what was the real stand out for both my wife and I, was the genuinely friendly and cheerful attitude that both George and Kath brought with them. This made what we feared would be a daunting experience  a great pleasure.


We certainly would not consider using anyone else for any future real estate matters.


We can offer only the highest recommendation for George and Kath and they have our unqualified wholehearted endorsement as the most consummate real estate agent that you could possibly find.


Yours Sincerely


Peter and Sue Steel

I had known both Kath and George professionally for a period of time before requiring the services of an agent. I had no hesitation in approaching them for the job. They are both experienced and personable, nothing is too much trouble and they made sure everything necessary was done to ensure a fast and trouble free sale. Within days we had enquiries and offers and the property was sold much faster than I expected at a price close to what we initially requested. Their fees are more than competitive, we were kept informed of any progress and we had a smooth handover.

Kath and George are a knowledgeable and friendly team who get the job done. I will be passing on their contact details to anyone I come across entering the local market

I was never in doubt as to the vendor’s point of view or concerns as he was in constant communications throughout the whole process.


Great job George.

We live in the UK & were flying to Australia with a view to purchase a property on the harbour in Newcastle.  A few days before leaving we contacted Steve at dotcom who quickly arranged an inspection for us on our day of arrival as our time was quite limited.  Over the next few days Steve showed us a range of properties which gave us a good overview of what was available.  We then went back to the first property for a second inspection & made an offer & subsequently secured our dream home.  At all times, Steve was highly professional, very friendly & always contactable.  He understood the time frame & pressure we were under but at no time did we feel pressured into making a decision.  I would highly recommend dotcom property sales.

I wish to express my appreciation of your efficient and seamless handling of the recent sale of my property in Newcastle East. You made what for me might have been a stressful experience, comfortable and worry-free. I first contacted you about the prospect of the sale in 2006 and it took me several years to get around to making the decision. Compared to other agents I interviewed at the time you were not pushy. (Knowing it to be a ‘spare’ house, one of the agents I interviewed offered to invest the proceeds in his name on my behalf; this was a very short interview!) At our first meeting you were diligent in regard to the documentation of the house, as well as your strategies and preparations.  When recently I chose to place the property on the market, you were calm in your manner and considerate in facilitating the sale. You achieved a record price in comparison to similar houses in the same location; moreover you managed to sell the property within an impressive short period of time. I thank you for your courtesy, diligence, integrity, and attention to detail.

HOWARD GOT THE PRICE I KNEW THE PROPERTY WAS WORTH

For Some people high powered marketing may ‘tick all the boxes’ but for my circumstance I needed and got from Howard Shedden an ethical, punctual person who listened and kept me informed. Howard worked to open houses and individual appointments, and modified his approach to suit the situation. My husband passed away suddenly, 8 weeks […]

For Some people high powered marketing may ‘tick all the boxes’ but for my circumstance I needed and got from Howard Shedden an ethical, punctual person who listened and kept me informed.


Howard worked to open houses and individual appointments, and modified his approach to suit the situation. My husband passed away suddenly, 8 weeks after retirement, so selling my home was especially stressful. Howard made it as easy as possible for me, and he got the price I knew the property was worth. I have no hesitation in recommending Howard Shedden to anyone looking to sell in the Newcastle region

I have bought and sold various properties over the years so have had a bit of exposure to the odd real estate agent. I’m not usually their greatest fan, but Howard from the first phone call displayed all those qualities not typically associated with agents. Pleasant, warm, calm, measured, quite simply a pleasure to deal with. He’s genuine demeanour is an obvious advantage to both the buyer and seller. I will be calling him again to take care of any future sales in Newcastle.

To whom it may concern


Selling our parents’ home in Wallsend was always going to be an emotional experience. The fact that we did not live in the area added to our anxiety.


Hence it was imperative that we found a real estate agent who was not only professional, and experienced but also one whom we could trust.


We interviewed several agents; many were simply after a “quick sale” and therefore quoted us a price well below Howard Shedden’s appraisal. Howard was 100% correct in his assessment. He had it sold for full price in less than one week.


How good is that!!!


If you are considering selling, make sure you call Howard Shedden, you won’t be disappointed.

WE WERE SO LUCKY TO FIND YOU STILL IN THE BUSINESS

It was a pleasure to work with you in selling our property. It can be hard to find someone that you trust, especially when we are no longer living locally, and we were so lucky to find you still in the business when we decide to sell.


Your experience and negotiating skills really carried the day through some difficult circumstances with buyers and we got a fabulous price for our place!


Often you find someone is either best for the buyer or best for the seller, but in your case we bought AND sold our property with you and could not be happier with both transactions. Best wishes

HOWARD KEPT US INFORMED AT EVERY STEP OF OUR SALE

Robyn and I could not be happier with the job that you did selling our house recently. Not only did you get a price that was 20% higher than the high pressure agents who tried the hard sell on us, but you were completely charming and kept us informed at every step of our sale.


We felt that we could really trust you with the sale of our property. Your recommendations were appreciated and always valuable, and you clearly have a comprehensive knowledge of the market in Newcastle and surrounds. We both still remember back to when we bought our house, again through you, and appreciated that you kept in touch, gently, throughout the next ten years.


If we were to come back to Newcastle we would be certain to be in touch with you to buy or sell our property.

Howard Shedden of Dotcom Property Sales had managed to sell our property after being in the market for only a short period of time.


His sense of professionalism, skill in attracting and acquiring the right buyer for our property must be highly commended, as prior to this, we had attempted to sell the property using 2 other agents, without success.


We have no hesitation in recommending Howard to anyone planning to sell their property.

I needed someone that I could trust, someone who would not take advantage of me and my circumstances.


It was like winning the lottery. You were absolutely thorough. You explained the whole selling process, you told me the likely price I could expect to get (this was above the other agents price) within 3 days you sold it for $24,000 above our asking price.


You not only sold it quickly but then arranged for all my rubbish and old furniture to be dumped and you even came and helped the rubbish men.


You are a thorough gentleman and I can only wish you every happiness and success for the future.


My friend said you were the best and she is right, You are the best!

Howard sold our property at the first Open House. While this certainly impressed us it is not the sole reason we will be using his services for all our future real estate needs. We benefitted from his vast experience and skill which was invaluable in managing


both our sale and the simultaneous purchase of our new home. He gave us an honest


assessment of the value of our property and had a network of clients to draw on as


potential purchasers.


We weren’t left wondering where we stood at any stage because Howard ensured we were kept up to date with every step of the process and he was always easy to contact.

Hi Anita, just wanted to thank you again for helping me to sell my block of land and provide you with a testimonial.


After my block of land that I owned for over twenty years failed to sell and the agent wanted me to reduce the price but still didn’t get me any serious offers I was to say the least a little disheartened.


Anita’s fresh and interested approach was just what I needed to reinvigorate the sale process.


Her motivation and enthusiasm soon brought me serious offers to consider which achieved a quick sale of my property.


I would highly recommend Anita if you want to sell your property.

I recently sold my first house which was situated in Waratah, NSW.  Naturally I was nervous and unsure about which agent to trust with my property.


However, I was recommended Dave Lane from dot.com real estate by a work colleague.


Upon first meeting with Dave, both my partner and I felt comfortable and instantly confident in Dave’s ability and efficiency. We hired him immediately.


Throughout the whole process from start to finish Dave was friendly and professional, very patient and able to answer all of our questions/concerns, and most importantly of all we felt 100 percent comfortable trusting him to look after not only our best interests, but also the interests of the buyer.


In the end Dave produced results which exceeded our expectations and we could not have been happier with our decision to let Dave look after our sale.

We had been keeping an eye on the market in the months before we decided to sell and knew from our research that Dave was a hard working agent, with a visible presence in our area. But when we met him we were blown away with his industry knowledge and awareness of how to get the best price for our home. Throughout our dealings with him we always felt confident in the process and in our ability to have honest discussions about everything to do with selling our home. No matter what the issue, whether it was big or small, Dave genuinely involved us in all decisions. He had sound advice, was always considerate of our family’s wishes and was a perfect gentleman. We cannot recommend him highly enough and know that you won’t regret making a time to meet with him and discuss selling your home.
