"Shad and his team had done an excellent job creating the maximum amount of interest around the unusual piece of real estate we were offering"

- Joanne & Bob - 80 Smith Street, Summer Hill

"When considering the sale of our home we looked for a team that would be supportive, commercially-minded, focused and driven. We also wanted a team that had great communication skills and were experienced at reading buyer interest. Shad and his fabulous team delivered on all of their promises. We had a fantastic experience pre-campaign and the insights and support during the run up to auction was faultless. With over 15 bidders registered on auction day, we were assured a genuinely competitive, market-driven result. We would highly recommend Shad and his team for anyone considering selling their home in the Inner West."

- Abbie & Nick, Vendors 135 Station Street, Petersham

"Whilst the selection of an agent to sell your home is a difficult at the best of times, we had the added complication of selling our home from interstate. We had met with several agents before a friend suggested we look at Shad Hassen from The Agency. Within five minutes talking to Shad we knew we were in expert hands and that we could hand over the sale of our home to him, with no doubts about achieving the best possible outcome. Shad and his team (especially his assistant Terri) were incredibly professional, capable, warm and genuine. Throughout the entire process we felt our concerns were addressed, our requirements taken on board and that the team were across all aspects of the sale. Shad’s integrity, experience as an agent in the Inner West, and love for his job are obvious and make him a standout in our opinion. His advice was sound, his strategies transparent and principled, and his team were all efficient and approachable which helped make the entire process as smooth as possible. Our photos were exceptional and the advertising campaign was incrediblely successful. We had large numbers of people through the house on weekend and mid week opens, right up till the last week. Whilst we knew Shad’s commitment was to achieve the best sale price for us, it was obvious in the lead up and at the auction that he had a great rapport with the potential buyers and that the ideal outcome was for both the buyer and seller to be happy. We could not have asked for more from Shad and his team and we recommend them with no reservations."

“Shad arrived on time and immediately presented himself as someone who was not going to push us into a decision that was not right for us. He was realistic in his appraisal of our home and he offered various marketing alternatives to choose from. During this meeting Shad spent considerable time outlining the steps of the marketing campaign which we had chosen, the costs involved and with Terri's assistance, a timeline of activities which would occur prior to going on the market; during the marketing campaign and post-sale. Terri supervised the marketing team on the day that they came to our home so it went smoothly with little disruption to our routine. At the open inspections Julian and Shad were there to ensure that the many prospective buyers were fully appraised of the property. Although we had opted for auction, within a few days of being on the market better than expected offers were being made with the final offer far exceeding our expectations so we sold prior to auction. Shad, Julian and Terri make an impressive team. They showed us what a fully professional approach can achieve.”

- Neil & Murray, Vendors 282 Young Street, Annandale

“Shad and his team sold our Leichhardt townhouse. It wasn't the easiest sale - we're in Europe, there was a recalcitrant tenant installed, and the house needed a real refresh. Terri, Shad's EA, did a magnificent job in coordinating across tradies and timezones, going above and beyond to make sure that everything went smoothly. Shad got us a committed buyer willing to pay the right price, and the broader team made sure that mechanics of the sale went smoothly. All in all, a really good experience.”

- Dave & Roz, Vendors 5/165 Allen Street, Leichhardt

"We chose Shad Hassen and his team at the Agency and were impressed by their ability to produce a strong result in a difficult climate. We have lived in the local area for the past 14 years, and were familiar with Shad's strong track record and market knowledge as well as his extensive client/lead base from that time. Having also engaged with the team as potential buyers on several properties over the years, the consistency and strength of engagement gave us a lot of confidence on how our sale would be managed and was a catalyst for choosing Shad and his team over other agencies. Whilst agencies will put a lot of spin on their marketing campaigns (that ultimately look relatively similar), the real differentiation and impact comes down to the sales process and execution and that's where we felt Shad's team excelled. Aside from Shad's direct engagement his sales team are highly engaging (as a buyer and seller we often felt like we were engaged by a team of agents, and not a 'one man band' as is often the feeling with other agencies). Shad's team help set him apart, and we have high praise for Julian Cordona who we think is a rising star in the area. Organisation of the campaign was outstanding also, particularly given some accelerated timeframes - particular shout out to Terri who does an incredible job behind the scenes. Communication style was positive from our side, direct and with appropriate balance and clarity throughout the campaign, which can often be a rollercoaster as a vendor. We recommend Shad and his team for any premium property in the inner west area."

- Matt & Julijana, 45A Railway Street, Petersham

We first had the pleasure of working with Shad in 2001 when buying our first home. As buyers, what impressed us most at the time was his ability to understand the emotion and financial commitment involved in our big decision. He did everything to guide, inform and reassure us and work towards the best outcome for us and the vendor. This positive experience stayed with us and when it was recently time to let go of our beloved home, Shad’s name immediately sprung to mind. As we’re now based o/seas and had plans to renovate pre-sale, it was crucial to leave our home in the care of someone whom we could trust. From the time of our initial call, Shad was on the case. Having been out of the property market for many years, we’d already done some homework but it was Shad who helped put things in order and in perspective for us. From the 1st video walk through so we could determine what work needed to be done, to helping us coordinate and oversee the required renovations, to the advertising campaign etc Shad went well above and beyond anything we could ever have expected. Special shout out as well to his assistant Terri, who worked hard behind the scenes throughout the process. Between Shad, Terri and us, we felt the sale of our home - beautifully restored, presented and marketed - was a real team effort and the communication lines were open every step of the way. The number of viewings far exceeded our expectations and true to his word, our home was sold at a price and within a timeframe we couldn’t be happier with. We’ve now worked with Shad on the buy and sell side and both experiences have been amazing. He is a true professional and deserves the numerous accolades and success he has achieved to date. We really hope to be able to work with Shad again in the future. If you’re looking to buy or sell in the Inner West, don’t think twice about getting in touch with Shad. You won’t regret it!
