Hi Robert,

I would like to take the opportunity to sincerely thank Kaye Lazenby for the professional sale of our house.

Kaye was an absolute pleasure to deal with and was very professional throughout the entire process.

We found Kaye very personable and transparent between vendor and purchaser. We cannot thank Kaye enough for making the process so smooth and stress free.

We would definitely recommend Kaye to anyone looking to sell their home.

Yours sincerely,

Jessica Cozens


Dear Jenny

Very belated but sincere thanks for all your assistance in selling my house.

I really appreciated all your work in promoting it;  following up with those who had expressed some interest & then keeping in touch with the purchasers.

Thank you for keeping me informed about the progress and interest.

Thank you also for your advice and patience as I worked through the installation of the septic tank. Your assistance and support helped me through the process.

Many thanks!

Jenny Watt

Subject: Feedback - Kaye Lazenby

Hi Matt,

I just wanted to pass on some feedback.

Selling a house is a time consuming and stressful process. Even more so when you have already moved to another town, and need to maintain both properties. As a professional couple with two teenaged boys, our most valued commodity is time.

Our family home has been on the market for nearly 6 months. It has been immaculately presented, but did not sell with our previous agent.  We were not disappointed with the agent, and understood that we were selling in a difficult market. 

After 5 months we re-listed with Kaye Lazenby.  From the first meeting with Kaye our spirits were lifted.  She was positive, engaging and knowledgable.  She made some simple suggestions to improve the salability of our home that could be made with modest cost and fuss.  She also managed our expectations, with regular phone calls, providing genuine feedback from people who had visited our home. In business, I have always believed it is important to be honest and transparent, and not just tell the customer what they want to hear.

Within a month of listing with Kaye our home sold!  

We had wanted to list the home with Kaye from day one. But Kaye was on holidays, and we were in a rush. We have many mutual connections, and Kaye's reputation is stellar.

Thanks to Kaye and DCK for helping us to open the next chapter of our life.

Over the last two years we have sold two of our investment properties through DCK with Kaye Lazenby as our agent.

Both properties sold in a very short period of time and the sales proceeded smoothly, largely due to Kaye's excellent communication skills and attention to detail.

Before we commenced the renovation on the second property we called Kaye in to give advice on what we should and shouldn't do and to help us to set our target toward a realistic selling price. All worked perfectly to plan. Kaye took an interest in the project and even found time to call in 'on site' to monitor progress!! She always found time for a chat which we appreciated.

Throughout the campaign Kaye  kept us totally informed with regular text messages and phone calls. She was highly organised and communicated in a  clear and timely manner. She was always enthusiastic and was optimistic about achieving a good outcome. She used her excellent negotiation skills to secure a good financial outcome for us.

With Kaye at the helm, we are confident that the sales process is hassle free and positive. We are indeed SOLD AND SATISFIED!! and would certainly use Kaye and DCK for future sales.

Thankyou for creating such a postive experience for us Kaye!!

Good morning Robert.

We have just sold our house in Kinta Crt Strathfieldsaye with Jenny Donaldson the selling agent on your agencies behalf.

We just wanted to let DCK management know what an absolute delight it was to have Jenny complete the sale for us. From the very first meeting and appraisal we found Jenny to be very approachable and honest in all the dealings that we had. Jenny provided great advice on presentation of the house and kept us informed at all times of progress as it occurred.

As you would know the selling of a house can be difficult and stressful at times but with Jenny's wonderful support and professionalism the whole process seemed to run very smoothly. I'm sure you already know what a valuable staff member Jenny is but we just wanted to let you know how very grateful we are for having the pleasure of working with Jenny for our sale.

Kind regards

Thank you for being honest, thorough, and an absolute pleasure to deal with. You are an excellent communicator and just a joy to deal with. Not to mention getting us our top price.

Dear Matt,

Letter of Commendation for Kaye Lazenby’s Outstanding Customer Service and Competency

In 2015 the extended Beattie family experienced such unbearable loss, first with my sister in late January and then suddenly my mother four months later.  The grief so overwhelmed us all that the last thing we could even begin to contemplate was making arrangements for the sale of the family home. After some months, we accepted that it was an inevitable necessity.

Kaye from the first point of contact was engaging, warm and exuded a strong sense of confidence that she could take this burden from the family. The relief this brought was immeasurable. From this point forward Kaye coordinated all aspects of marketing, communications, administration and salesmanship with precision, integrity and poise.

Kaye was persistent and reliable in following potential buyers and keeping us informed of progress. She very astutely used a keen balance of determination and diplomacy which resulted in a high level of engagement and likability with a subtle undercurrent of motivation to achieve a sale.  This sophisticated set of skills is not readily applied by salespeople generally, and takes life experience and high level negotiation and people skills to achieve.

I have no doubt Kaye’s vocation chose her. Her performance, 100% reliability, and warmth set her apart from her peers. Kaye exemplifies the ideal real estate agent and her knowledge, skills and fine-tuned approach should be harnessed and replicated. Those who are new to the real estate industry stand to gain considerably with Kaye as mentor.

I feel grateful and blessed to have had such a difficult situation taken off my hands and managed proficiently and with humanity.

Yours most sincerely and with gratitude,

Sue Beattie-Johnson


We have been real estate agents ourselves – which makes us incredibly fussy about the agent we would choose to represent our property. It takes a lot to impress us. We have dealt with Kaye most recently in selling an investment of ours, which sold at the first open home and at the top of price range. Kaye has also achieved fabulous results for other family members too.

Kaye's attention to detail and follow ups are impeccable. What I really appreciate the most is that she does not talk rubbish, like so many sales people have a habit of doing. She really understands and demonstrates integrity.

Although we are very experienced in real estate, like everyone, we tend to get stressed when putting our own property on the market. We need to know that everything is being attended to at the right time and in the right way. Kaye understands this implicitly, she kept us informed the whole time, and made all the right calls when needed. We felt safe and taken care of, we knew we could trust her advice, not only from her many years of experience, but who she is at her core.

We were amazed at how an agent who has so many other homes she is marketing, always had the time to be there for us when we needed her. I can see why she is so successful.

Now to buy the next one, who will we talk to first? – Kaye of course!
