Blake Stretton
I write this letter to express my appreciation for the professionalism displayed by Blake Stretton during the purchase of my property at Green Point.
When a person is buying or selling a property, it is without doubt an intense period in one’s journey as a property owner. In my first encounter with Blake, he put me at ease with his friendly manner and more importantly his ‘no pressure’ approach. I walked away from this encounter with complete faith and trust in both Blake and Gittoes Real Estate.
During the ensuing 2 month period, Blake conducted himself in an extremely professional manner whilst being friendly, understanding and patient ready to assist with any of my enquires. Nothing that I required or requested was a problem to Blake.
I found Blake’s knowledge of the local and surrounding areas and its infrastructure to be very extensive. If there was a question he could not answer or information he did not know, the required information was provided to me in a very timely manner.
Blake was both fair and upfront to both myself as the purchaser and to the vendor.
In my dealing with Blake Stretton, I found him to be nothing but the ultimate professional.
Since the purchase of my property, Blake has maintained his professional relationship with me which, I believe, further enhances his professionalism as a Real Estate Agent. I would have no hesitation in recommending Blake Stretton of Gittoes Real Estate to any future property purchaser or vendor.

Blake Stretton
Recently I sold a property in Green Point through Gittoes Real Estate using Blake Stretton as my agent. I was pleased to find his service courteous and professional during the entire period, from the initial phone call through to settlement. He kept in regular contact with me, always keeping me updated on interest in the property and Gittoes had great systems in place to track the feedback on my property. I would recommend them to anyone selling property in the area.

Trent Mullen
Dear Trent, Thank you so much for all your help with the sale of my mother's house. We could not have been more satisfied with all aspects of the sale process. This was a hard decision to sell as it has been in the family for over 60 years. The communication from Gittoes and yourself was outstanding and you kept us regularly informed at every stage of the process. You listened carefully to the type of buyer we were interested in targeting as it was a potential development block and found the ideal buyer for it in a really short amount of time and we were happy with the price we got for the house and block. Everything as explained so clearly and you took the stress out of the whole process as it was an emotional sale for me. We'd recommend you and Gittoes to anyone interested n buying or selling as we could not have been happier with the service.
Regards,
- Diane & Gary White

Richard Faulkner
It is our absolute pleasure to recommend Richard Faulkner as a hard working, dedicated estate agent. From the moment we met Richard, Katrina and I knew he was the first agent to come to our house that really listened to what we wanted.
Richard was considerate and patient when it came to open inspections and showing people through our home. He kept us in the loop and updated us with all that was happening throughout the sale of our home.
Richard went above and beyond and not only sold our home but found us a new house to buy - our dream home.
I would (and will) recommend Richard to anyone looking to sell his or her home. We cannot thank him enough for all he did for us.

Blake Stretton
Currently I reside in Sydney, faced with constant commuting to the Central Coast thus presenting additional problems in our overall property preparation. I approached Blake Stretton from Gittoes Realty in early August 2012 requesting them to handle the sale of her home. Blake was assigned to market the 20 year old property which did require some extra attention in order to present a marketable commodity to potential home buyers.
Their input during & leading up to the final stages when the home was listed publically was extremely invaluable, providing much insight into some changes that would hopefully attract potential buyers. Their guidance & various suggestions to a number of interior & external improvements was helpful to the overall marketing program, particularly the final outcome. The final result was that the property sold within 2-3 weeks after listing & that they achieved a result that was beyond my original expectation. My thanks to Blake & Cathy for their assistance & professionalism experienced over the course of these past months. To those potential vendors considering marketing with Gittoes please contact me if you wish, for my thoughts & experiences.es Realtors who are locatedOver the past 3 months I have been associated with Gittoes Realtors who are located at East Gosford, having the need to sell my elderly mothers home which is located in Green Point on the NSW Central Coast.

Blake Stretton
We would like to recommend Blake Stretton of Gittoes Real Estate East Gosford. We found Blake as an honest, reliable and sincere person. His professionalism, accurate information, helpfulness and prompt responses to our questions and guidance in so many ways, made the whole transaction easy without concerns on our part. We did not want to have an open house if we could avoid it; he came up with an alternative plan, by which he selected people whom he thought may have been more suitable to our home and price. After only 4 couples viewed our home on the first inspection, he sold our home, at more than the price I had quoted to him. We also bought our new downsized home through him, and noticed the same service to us, he also gave to the seller. We felt that we were “special “clients. My wife and I have no hesitation in recommending Blake as a highly competent and effective Real Estate Agent.

Having decided to put our house at 2/27 Beveridge Drive, Green Point on the market we had no hesitation in listing with Blake Stretton from Gittoes. We had previously been in touch with Blake regarding a market appraisal and we were very impressed with his professionalism and his honest approach. This was certainly reflected with the sale of our property within a few days after listing and at the price we were looking for. Blake's constant feedback on the progress and negotiations on the sale and settlement was excellent. We have no hesitation in recommending Blake Stretton from Gittoes to other potential clients.

Blake Stretton
From day 1, Blake ticked all the boxes. At the initial meeting he impressed us with his professional approach especially asking us to list our expectations. He constantly updated us on prospective purchasers - our number one request. At all times we were treated with the utmost consideration and respect. The 2 open days were conducted efficiently and computer, personal and phone follow-ups gave us insight into the opinions of those who attended.
Costs related to real estate / advertising / Conveyancing were clearly outlined and at all times we felt confident in his ability to present our home to achieve the optimum result. Thanks Blake for your enthusiasm, empathy and expertise. We'd be delighted to recommend you to anyone selling their home.
