  • 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. ”

“I am very grateful to Shu and Paul for their assistance in helping me to sell my house in a short period of time for an idea price. Over the whole process, I saw them work seriously hard and work diligently to ensure each potential buyer provided useful information. They then provided me with an extensive, very timely analysis of this feedback to me. They have strong communication skills and market experience, I’m sure they will achieve success again and again. Chadwick is lucky to have them both, I wish them more and more prosperity.”

Lai Xu - 78/5 Lamond Drive, Turramurra

“Trustworthy - know their market Paul and Shu were a pleasure to deal with. Both are professional and market experts. The sale of my property was seamless. However, I know Paul, Shu and their team were working diligently behind the scenes to achieve the best result possible, which I believe they did. I was kept in the loop throughout the sales process. Property sold within 10 days at a price well above my expectations.”

Dianne Miller - Cranford Avenue

“Honest, efficient and supportive! Paul & Shu were professional and efficient throughout the selling campaign, they kept us well informed at all stages of the process. Paul was upfront and honest in his valuations never talking the property up or talking it down when it took longer than expected to sell (due to battle-axe block and finding the right buyer). Paul has great local knowledge of the area and understands the true worth of the properties he sells. Highly recommend Chadwick's and Paul & Shu.”

Sue McRoberts - 2A Richmond Avenue, St Ives

“Commitment and enthusiasm It was a pleasure to deal with Paul for the sale of my property. He has an honest and open approach that inspires trust in both vendor and purchaser, as does his many years' experience and great local knowledge. He is always friendly and positive, and very quick to respond to any questions. His reassuring manor made the whole experience as positive and stress free as it could have been.”

Tricia Gowing - 59/183 St Johns Ave, Gordon

“One very happy customer! Paul, as well as his team of Shu Zhang and Lachlan Yelds, did a first class job. We wanted a quick sale, because we had committed to a purchase, but from first listing to final exchange of contracts, it only took 11 days. That was beyond our best hopes! And the final price exceeded our expectations. Paul was open to discussing different options during the sales process (e.g, bringing the auction date forward, selling pre auction) and he went along with our wishes. He and his team worked tirelessly to get the sale completed, particularly in the last 2 days. Thank you to all and I can thoroughly recommend Paul if you are selling.”

Tim Walton - 72B Collins Road, St Ives

“We are so grateful to have been recommended the services of Chadwick Real Estate. We were fortunate enough to have had Paul Diks, Shu Zhang, and Lachlan Yelds all play a role in selling our Over 55's townhouse promptly, professionally, and effortlessly. Always contactable and approachable, putting Real Estate jargon that is not tip of the tongue for most, into a manner that we were able to understand and digest, was super important to us. These guys delivered a great outcome for our Over 55's townhouse. Thank you all so much, and well done!!”
