  • Sales Associate to Paul Diks & Shu Zhang

“We first met Paul a few years ago when he sold us the house, we were impressed then with his knowledgeable and friendly manner. The purchase was a stress-free and enjoyable process so when it came to selling Paul was our choice. So much of what an agent does goes on behind the scene, we were very happy with the result, which could only have been achieved with Paul's experience, professionalism and determination.”

“We spent months looking at houses in St Ives. We found a house that Paul was selling and was impressed with his knowledge of the area, clear understanding of the market and ability to represent his vendor. His transparent approach to negotiating made this difficult process more straightforward as a buyer, enabling us to make a decision knowing the likely outcome of our offer. His no-nonsense approach made it easier for us to proceed and no doubt manufactured a sale in a shorter time, benefiting all parties.”

“We put our property on the market two and a half years ago with Paul. Paul was selected from three agents that presented to us, and we found that he guided us through the process and assisted with presentation ideas to get the best price. We did get a buyer but I felt that it was not the right price for the property. I decided not the proceed and Paul was very co-operative and not pushy at all. Paul's agency, Chadwick Real Estate found us a good tenant and we put the property back on the Market in April 2016. Paul kept us informed over the two years with market updated and advise. The property was sold in three weeks, at a price more then we expected and substantially higher than two years ago. The marketing and advice on presentation was spot on, hence the result. I highly recommend Paul to anyone looking to sell in the area that he operates in. he is a pleasure to work with.”

“I feel very fortunate to have selected Paul Diks to act on our behalf in the sale of my late Father's home. Paul and his wife worked tirelessly on our behalf in less than optimal circumstances and were able to secure a very satisfactory outcome in the sale of the home. Paul's professionalism was exceptional and he promptly kept us up to date with all developments regarding the sale. His knowledge of the market and his advice were a real bonus for us. Paul is a very impressive personality and his honesty, integrity and work ethic gave us every confidence that we had chosen the right person to act on our behalf. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Paul Diks. We were very fortunate in having Paul represent us and I am extremely grateful for the hard work and effort that Paul put in on our behalf.”

“I am writing to express my great satisfaction with the service of Mr Paul Diks of Chadwick Real Estate, St Ives, Sydney. The house that I sold was part of my mother’s deceased estate in St Ives. We were selling on an already falling market when we decided to offer it in August 2018. Paul met with the beneficiaries to hear their wishes and to map out a selling strategy. He showed his shrewdness about the market, insisting on opening for inspection one month before the ‘selling season’ of spring in Sydney. The house needed preparation: external washing, painting, the removal of carpets and polishing of floorboards. Paul supplied the teams of tradesmen and supervised the work, so that all was completed within ten days. A selection of the original furniture was retained in keeping with the traditional style of the house. There was lukewarm reaction once the house went on the market. Here, for a second time Paul demonstrated that we were in safe hands, adjusting our original asking price downwards by 1% in a bold move that paid off. The house went to a well-attended auction and was passed in, except that one buyer’s agent assured us of a genuine interest. Contracts were exchanged soon thereafter and a settlement date was agreed to mutual satisfaction. A surprising dimension to this account is the fact that I live in Canberra. Paul kept in constant phone and email contact with me and in person when I visited Sydney. Throughout the whole process he was calm, confident and quick to attend to my every query. His long experience working in real estate in the North Shore area was quite evident. He is also a very pleasant personality to deal with. I wish him every success in the future. ”
