What Our Clients Say
"My wife and I engaged Edwin and his team to help us with an investment property purchase in Sydney. From the start Edwin was clear and upfront about the process including the fees and timeframes. Edwin researched our target area for comparable properties and canvassed the market before bidding on our behalf at auction. We would highly recommend him and the team to anyone looking to make a purchase."
Arzan & Coralea - Sydney
"Edwin was an absolute pleasure to deal with. With us being naive first home buyers, Edwin guided us through the whole process patiently and pointed out the benefits and pitfalls of each property we looked at. At no stage did we feel pressured to transact and Edwin was always fighting in our corner when dealing with sales agents. We finally settled on a home that suited us and our budget and we could not be happier."
Helen – Rob & Family - QLD
"Edwin and Melanie helped us with our interstate relocation from Queensland to Sydney. Due to COVID border restrictions, we were unable to visit Sydney to view houses and so on the recommendation of a colleague, engaged Edwin as our buyer’s agent. We couldn’t have been happier. He has an excellent knowledge of the property market, specifically in Sydney but also, the broader trends across Australia and even globally. He was able to advise us on the best areas and types of property to consider and undertook a huge amount of research into individual houses. In addition, Edwin has great knowledge of building condition issues and undertakes very thorough inspections, frequently spotting things missed by the building & pest report. Both Edwin and Melanie provided us with expert insight and opinion on the multiple properties we viewed, with excellent communication through videos and photos. They were able to gain access to properties outside of normal open hours, have informed conversations with agents and, come auction time, worked brilliantly as a team to secure our target property at a great price. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to future prospective buyers. Thanks so much, Edwin and Melanie. From Helen, Rob and family."
Taras - Sydney
"I cannot recommend Edwin & his team highly enough. We engaged Edwin to assist in purchasing a family home, and over a period of months he joined me in countless open homes and inspections, patiently executing a strategy to ensure that we had the best chance of success, and all without a hint of pressure at any time. His industry experience spanning decades gave us an insider view into how the industry 'works', what motivates a sale, how to identify value, and offered a fantastic unbiased frank second opinion. As a bonus, his construction knowledge many a time identified multiple issues that were hiding underneath a cheap 'reno' often missed out by the pest & building report, provided reassurance that a potential purchase was not harboring hidden issues that would cost thousands to fix, and also helped to quickly evaluate what could be done to a potential purchase and for how much - no need to separately engage a builder or inspector! Throughout the time Edwin showed genuine care and concern for our family: climbing up his self brought ladder to extract an insulation sample to rush off to the asbestos testing labs (again often missed out by the P&B report), checking to see if the wiring needed replacing, and diving deep underneath houses to obtain a closer look at what was really happening at the foundation level. I honestly still think Edwin's level of service and help is beyond that which a buyer's agent should provide."
Andrew - Sydney
"I have worked with Edwin & Ribbon Property team, for over a year to try and find the right house for my family. Daily calls, understanding how the whole process works and that step by step approach towards avoiding money pits and emotion has been amazing. I highly rate his and the team’s services for the biggest financial decision you are likely to make."
