The results speak for themselves - but it never hurts to hear it from a client too.
We are over the moon with the purchase!
Fully committed to catering to our exact specifications.
Valuation oriented with understanding our needs and preferences.
Ended up with a house we certainly wouldn't have got on our own.
we were thoroughly delighted with the service from Kim and Oli.

Immediately understood the needs of our family and preferences for the perfect family home. Provided great guidance - sage advice and counsel as we explored a number of properties before settling on the perfect home - which was then negotiated to our great satisfaction.

As first time property investors with only a small ‘egg’, my partner and I were looking for a buyer’s agent who could maximize our investment potential and educate us in the process. Further, working in health at the time of coronavirus meant our timetables and availabilities were often very limited, and we needed someone to work with us and accommodate this. Sally was the perfect fit for us, combining industry knowledge, diligence, and that special human touch.
With several decades in property, and most experience in the Sydney market, Sally had an in-depth knowledge of what factors to look for, how to prioritise the search, and how best to negotiate the outcome.
She took the time to get to know us and interrogate our brief. At all times she was diligent, making herself available for last minute phone calls or emails, and planning for different contingencies. She worked with us to accommodate our difficult timetables.
She has a wonderful ability to explain her reasoning, making the process an educative one where we felt informed and empowered. Most of all, she possessed an empathy and ability to understand our position, address our concerns, and put herself in the shoes of prospective renters and buyers.
In the end we faced competitive from other buyer’s agent’s for a sought after apartment in Sydney’s East, managing to secure the apartment and to have it rented within only three days of settlement.
Sally was a consummate advocate for our interests throughout the entire searching and buying process. We cannot give her a higher recommendation, and my partner and I are looking forward to working with her again in the future.
J & R
Very professional and took the stress out of finding a house.
We wouldn’t have been able to purchase our new house without Lauren’s experience and advice.
Couldn’t recommend her highly enough.
N & M
We had been looking seriously at the market for about 18-months before we employed Sally. In that time, we hadn’t had the chance to put a single offer in or get to auction as sales were moving so quickly and we simply didn’t have the time to drop everything during the week and organise inspections, lawyers etc. From the first meeting with Sally we knew she understood exactly what we were looking for and was really committed to the task. Her professionalism, warmth and incredible understanding of the market and how to execute a purchase made us feel completely at ease. We were able to continue our busy work/life schedules knowing she had everything in order. It took Sally precisely 3-weeks to find the best house that we had seen on the market and within 3 days the sale was finalised. We didn’t over pay and we have not a single regret. In the weeks following the sale, Sally provided ongoing support and countless contacts to help set up life in our new home. She is worth every penny and we have no hesitation in recommending her.
Sally took all the stress out of the buying process. We'd been looking for many months before finding her, and she carried the burden of searching, battling opens, dealing with agents, navigating price guides and decoding the buying process. She taught us a lot along the way. And, she opened our eyes up to what was truly important. She found us our forever home in a market where we had lost hope. She locked it down swiftly for us in a quickly moving market. She was a pleasure to work and spend time with.
I just wanted to give you an update on the floor plan that you looked into for us and guided us into not buying off the plan due to a few issues that you could see straight off the bat. Instead we opted for an apartment across the road that was pre-existing and about 5 years old. Park Lane was finally finished a few weeks ago (about 2 years after they said it would be done!) and Ryan and I went to check out a few of the open homes last weekend and we are so grateful that you advised us not to buy there!! Whilst the apartments were new, had ducted AC and timber floorboards etc, there were so many other issues that we picked up on and had we purchased, we would have been unhappy. My friend who had also bought off the plan is currently trying to sell her apartment too.
If you recall, you advised us against buying one of the floor plan layouts as it had a hallway and would not the best use of space and recommended a corner apartment instead which was advertised at a much higher cost as it was north facing and had an additional bathroom. Of the 8 level apartment, 5 of those apartments have since been advertised for sale and I think all selling for under what they would have been sold at off the plan. The rooms and the space is pokey and there’s absolutely no light (except the top floor) as the apartment building next door blocks it all.
Anyway, I just wanted to drop you a note to say THANK you so much (again) for saving us this despair that others are going through now.

We engaged Rose & Jones to help us find an investment property in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs as first-time investors in the Sydney property market. We wanted to focus on rental yield and long-term capital growth for this property. After many months of searching with limited stock in the market, and narrowing down our criteria, Sally James helped us to find a lovely, light-filled apartment in a beautifully well-maintained building in Woollahra. We are incredibly happy with our purchase and wouldn’t have been able to do it without Sally. We’re looking forward to settling, and having the property managed by the property management team at Rose & Jones.
Many thanks from me too Sally - having your guidance and support throughout the whole process made a real difference to the outcome and we made a far better purchase as a result.

Recently we were looking to invest in commercial and residential properties. Discovering that there was a vast array of options out there we were advised to employ Rose and Jones as buyer’s agents.
With Sally James as our agent we were able to view many different options. Some of these properties were off market and we were only able to view them due to her contacts. Sally’s hard work and diligence in sifting through the many available properties and providing a short list was a huge benefit to us. Also the research on the commercial properties provided the financial details necessary to make an informed decision.
Sally’s research and gentle guidance enabled us to purchase two outstanding commercial properties that we feel will be of enormous value to us in the future. She also found a residential property that far exceeded our expectations.
During our dealings with Sally she was always punctual, very informative and had a great attention to detail during our property inspections. She streamlined what could have been a long and complicated process, making it all very interesting and enjoyable.

Although I am no longer renting with Rose & Jones I have to say you're the best property manager I've had the pleasure of dealing with over all the years.

The professional manner in which Oliver approached everything was second to none. Always there to answer our calls and so understanding of our family and our needs.
Oliver was on the front foot with on and off market properties.
His reports and insights of the properties we inspected really helped us to make well informed decisions for our family and our future.
Knowing I had someone much more qualified handling these tense discussions was just awesome and so reassuring to know our best interests were being represented. The peace of mind that came with this is something I can’t quantify in words.
Oliver went above and beyond helping us secure our property. To hire a professional to represent us, is 100% the best move we have made this year. To Oliver and all at Rose & Jones, thank you.
Aileen & Eoghan
Dear Rose & Jones
A million thanks for your help with the purchase of our new property.
Oliver picked it up at the 11th hour and boy did he run! You made everything super easy, kept us in the loop and provided valuable market intel and advice on how best to make this happen.
We're delighted that it's done and are grateful you were part of the process.
Emilie & Alastair
I also want to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help with the apartment. In the 15 years I have had the place under property management, you are far and away the best, always following up in a timely manner. Much appreciated.
The decision to engage Rose & Jones as my Buyer’s Agent was a no-brainer. From my first meeting with Oliver, I was totally confident he understood what it was I wanted, even when sometimes I doubted myself! Oliver clearly explained how he and the Rose & Jones team could assist me in finding my ideal property.
I LOVE the Client Vault. All the information, comparisons, feedback etc in one easy-to-access place! An invaluable asset to me, especially as I was buying for investment, in deciding whether or not to proceed further with a property and make an offer or not.
The team at Rose & Jones saved me what I estimate to be hundreds of hours of my time and thousands of dollars searching for and finally securing my ideal property. Oliver handled all the necessary contacts re contracts etc. On more than one occasion he drove across town on my behalf to collect required documents because there insufficient time to post them to his office. Oliver's efforts and negotiating skills, supported by Byron on the day of the auction, mean I became the proud owner of a fabulous property purchased at a fabulous price.
Nothing seems to be too much trouble for Rose & Jones and I could not be happier. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the company to anyone considering using a Buyer’s Agent.

As novices in real estate, we required a buyer's agent to help us purchase our apartment in Sydney's eastern suburbs. Rose and Jones were recommended to us and we never looked back. We worked most closely with Lauren Goudy, who was extremely personable and took the time to get to know us and understand our situation which ensured we were only exposed to properties which were genuinely suitable.
Lauren shows a true passion for real estate, giving us a great insight into Sydney's competitive housing market, and was professional at all times. We were constantly kept up to date with the steps involved with the sale and Lauren was always available on the phone. Most importantly Lauren’s genuine and caring nature was recognised and appreciated by both of us. It was Lauren's expertise, knowledge and ambition which led to our successful purchase of an apartment off market, which ticked all of our boxes, and best of all was below market value.
We would never have been able to achieve such a successful purchase without Lauren's help and would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone. Lauren works for a fantastic organisation and we are extremely happy we chose Rose & Jones to help us with what could have been a very daunting, time consuming and difficult task. The fantastic service we received throughout the buying process, meant that we did not have to think twice about continuing our relationship with the company in helping us to rent out our property. We required help with renovating, legal issues, advertising and acquiring tenants for our place, which were completely taken care of. After being involved with several agents, including Byron, Lauren and Jamie, we were very impressed at the level of communication in the office, as whoever we spoke to knew our situation and what stage we were at, which made the process seamless. We would recommend Rose & Jones to anyone buying, selling or renting in Sydney and would definitely use them again in the future.

It was a complete pleasure working with Lauren Goudy in the search for my new home! Lauren listened to what I wanted and together with the client questionnaire, she was able to identify what I really needed, not what I thought I wanted, there was a huge difference.
Lauren took the time to get to know me and was able to steer me in the right direction. She was both professional and empathetic in her approach to finding me the right property. Lauren provided me with peace of mind knowing that I could always contact her for advice and often a pep talk to reassure me, that we were headed in the right direction!
Knowing I had Lauren on my side took the stress out of feeling alone during such a huge moment in my life, and made the process a lot more manageable. I have no hesitation in recommending Lauren Goudy to anyone in need of assistance in buying their next “home.”
Our family relocated to Sydney this year and we were fortunate enough to meet Jamie Hargrave Smith in our search for a family home. James and Jamie were one of the most professional agents that we have had the pleasure to meet in our years of property purchasing and leasing. We also appreciate their friendly manner and their prompt response to any and every question along the way.

My decision to deal with Rose & Jones (Stuart) was the smartest one in the process of buying a property. They listened to what I wanted and also uncovered needs that I was not aware of. This consultation process meant that I was able to identify what I really wanted and then secure it.
Stuart took the time to know me and understand what I really wanted. He was then able to identify and steer me in the right direction. This saved time, money and a lo of angst. Moreover, I know that in the final hours of negotiation that having a cool head meant I didn't pay more than I needed to.
I highly recommend them and would never buy another property without them.
Client - Harvey & Kerrie
We are still revelling in our great decision to employ your services for Wansey Road!
Your confidence and experience was obvious. A main contributing factor to the wining bid. After two years of feeling continuous in limbo we can finally move on. Again our very sincere thanks and gratitude.
