Director of Residential Sales - Mr Matt Bowles

Dear Matt

I am writing to you to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to the Team at DCK, in particular Jenny Donaldson.

My wife and I decided to sell our property, our family home, a 15 acre lifestyle property at Goornong. Our first choice was to try DCK and I must say it’s one of the smartest choices that I’ve made.

From our initial contact when we first walked through the doors of your office, right through the sales process and up to settlement, your staff have been nothing but friendly, courteous and helpful.

We were fortunate enough to have Jenny Donaldson handle our Sale and what a fantastic salesperson she is.

Jenny came out and inspected our property and had people coming through within days. The customer service Jenny provided to us and the prospective buyers that came through our house was second to none. Jenny kept regular contact with us and involved us in every single aspect of the sales process.

Within one week of our property going on the market, Jenny had our place sold.  An unbelievable result!

Jenny Donaldson is a lovely lady with great people and communication skills; and is an asset to your team and a wonderful ambassador for the DCK brand.

I cannot speak highly enough of our experience with Jenny and DCK.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jenny Donaldson and DCK to any prospective sellers or purchasers.

“Thank you Jenny.”

Kind Regards

Mark Herman

P.S I would also like to make special mention in relation to Dannielle Sexton who helped with the sale and assisted us when Jenny was away overseas. Danielle was as equally impressive as Jenny and an absolute pleasure to deal with.

“Thank you Danielle.”

Dear Sir

We have just had our home sold by your Company at  XXX Midland Hwy Huntly and by your representative Mrs Kaye Lazenby.

My wife & I were put at ease by Kaye as she led us through the process of selling our home, from signing the Section.32 through to settlement.

Kaye informed us of the progress our sale had reached at all stages of the sale.

With reps like Kaye with her pleasant nature and professionalism you can be assured of success.

Thank you

Thanks for your email re: the impending due date for a property inspection and expiry of the lease. Glenda or I would like to be present for the inspection. Please advise me of your plans. 

We also intend to continue to lease the property and would be pleased (subject to the inspection outcome) for the current tenants to continue.

Thanks also for the excellent service you provide. I really appreciate your timely communication and responsiveness. We have another investment property (not in Bendigo) and the service you provide is vastly superior to what we receive from the other property management firm. 



Dear Matt,

I am writing to you in regards to the sale of 241 Allingham Street.

I want to express my sincere gratitude to DCK and especially Danielle for her hard work in selling our home.

Danielle's communication skills, knowledge, professional attitude and dedication in looking after us was always at the highest level.

I was grateful for Danielle's honesty and committed drive during the sale of our home.  It was a wonderful and easy experience for us due to Danielle's professionalism but caring attitude; she had our best interests at heart and got a great outcome.

Danielle does DCK's reputation proud and is a great asset to your company.  Dannielle made selling our house a wonderful experience and we will be - and have been  - recommending DCK and Danielle to many friends, family and work colleagues.

Thank you for this experience we are forever grateful.

Kind Regards

Annette and Peter Forbes

Dear Lee

Bill and I thank you for your constant professionalism and patience in selling our home.

We always knew about the state of play thanks to your excellent communication.

We are now settled in our new home and know we've made the right decision in coming here.

Kind Regards

Dear Kaye

I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you for selling my home.

In all my years of buying & selling homes you have been the best Agent I have ever met; your attention to detail in every phase of selling was fantastic.

Thanks also to Martyn for his input. I am absolutely delighted & hope the next part of my life at the village will go as smoothly as this has.

Hi Josie

I just wanted to pass on my appreciation of the work Karena Knee has done managing my property at  Larritt Street, Bendigo, since taking over several months ago.

As you'd be aware we have had several issues with tenants over the years and most recently have had to evict the most recent tenant.

I have been very pleased with the way Karena has managed this process and the outcome for us has been no real net loss of income or substantial damage to the property & hopefully much better tenants!!

Most recently we were working at the property over the weekend and Karena dropped in to see how we were going. Anyway I just wanted to pass on my recognition of her efforts.

Re: Lot 11 Garden Drive Epsom

Dear Lee

I would like to sincerely and personally thank you for the fantastic experience I had selling my first home, which wouldn’t have been possible without your flawless service.

At the beginning of the process, for a first time vendor it’s extremely nerve racking trying to identify the most suitable real estate agent because you want to be sure it’s someone you can trust, rely on, communicate well with, and most of all reach a final sale which is rewarding for all involved. From my point of view you have all these attributes which made the experience not only exciting but enjoyable.

Whilst searching for a real estate agent I did liaise with some of the competition to gauge what was available, and although their fees were slightly lower, it was your honesty about the potential sale price which was the defining factor as well as the professionalism of your approach.

The most memorable part of the experience for me will always be the fact that my property sold close to the asking price before the house was even put on the market or advertised. It proves that you and Dungey Carter Ketterer have not only looked after me as a client but also looked after others in the industry, resulting in an extensive and reputable client base.

 As a result I will not hesitate in engaging your services again in the near future, and will continue to promote the fantastic service I received to others.

I look forward to working with you again in the near future.

Yours Sincerely

The Crandell’s thank you to Kaye Angove from DCK

Once we had finally made the big decision to sell our family home, we called Kaye from DCK to see if she would like to come around and appraise our house and walk us through the selling process. 

Kaye showed us a number of comparable homes in the area that were either on the market or recently sold to help us decide on a realistic sale price for our home, she also talked us through the various marketing packages available and after discussing our needs we collectively decided upon the marketing strategy that would work best for us.  

We were excited when the For Sale sign went up, but was a little apprehensive about our first open for inspection.  Kaye was great and assured us that our preparedness and presentation of our family home would speak for itself and fortunately the turn up was terrific. 

Kaye’s professionalism and follow up process of potentially interested buyers was excellent.  We were thrilled when we sold the house after our second inspection.    Kaye kept us informed throughout the whole negotiation process and our overall sale result was fantastic not only on price but also a settlement date that met our needs.  We can’t thank Kaye enough for her engagement and making the whole sales process so smooth. 

We would definitely recommend Kaye to anyone who is interested in selling their home.

Hi Kaye,

We are sort of settled in our in between homes period, trying to combine two homes into one. I do want to thank you so much for the hard work and your excellent customer service you gave when selling both our mother’s retirement unit and more recently our own home. We had a few ups and downs as does occur in the selling process but you were just something else in reassurance and getting us back on track. 

Mum’s unit was not easy to sell and another real estate agency had it on their books with only one enquiry in nine months. You generated interest, thinking outside of the box and we were staggered when it was signed and sealed within a few weeks.

The process for our own home was just as personal and professional. You were off work with a serious injury and yet you kept us in the loop the whole time. We sold our home in just a month and were very happy with the price obtained. I almost felt that your job is your hobby rather than just a job; such was your dedication and commitment to our property. It felt as though we were your most important clients (which I am sure all of your clients feel the same way).

I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any prospective customer who is considering selling their home. The whole experience with DCK was something else. It always felt warm and inviting whenever I came into the office and all of the staff bent over backwards to ensure we achieved the desired result.

Kind regards.

Yours sincerely

Steve & Helen Bryar
