Hi Michelle I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you for looking after the sale of my Leederville property. From day one you were amazing the advice given regarding small maintenance issues then arranging the trades to do that work. Then came the presentation advice, arranging the furniture and actually supplying some of the furniture and putting in the finishing touches. This all resulted in a successful sale within a few weeks, rather than some of the properties which were on the market when you listed are still on the market. Great positive attitude that turns into results also a very good negotiator. Thanks Michelle Regards Jeff March 2017

I recently sold a property in City Beach with Michelle and have no hesitation in recommending her to any prospective seller. Having sold a few houses in the last 5 years, I found her to differ to other agents in her willingness to 'go the extra mile'. She undertook some gardening at her own expense, put some small items in the empty house for presentation, made some very good recommendations about how best to present the property and was prepared to open Saturday and Sunday. I had Michelle recommended to me by a friend and was very impressed with her professionalism and friendliness. I would definitely use her again.

Michelle Hawkins has sold two properties for my husband and I, one in Woodlands (2009) and the other in Wembley Downs (2012). On both occasions the market was difficult and Michelle was able to offer her professional assistance in the sale of both houses, to achieve a valuable result. Michelle's asset is her knowledge of the current market and strong communication skills, particularly relaying purchaser interest to the vendor in a timely manner. Michelle's professionalism and knowledge of the real estate market is exceptional, given her extraordinary length of service she has given this sector. I would recommend anyone to Michelle Hawkins as their real estate representative and in fact have done so on many occasions, with great outcomes for those who've enjoyed Michelle's selling skills. Should I need to contract a real estate professional in the future, I will always contact Michelle for her advice and assistance.

Michelle Hawkins came highly recommended to us by another real estate agent and obviously has the respect of her peers and those who work in the real estate industry. It was clear from the start that Michelle was very professional in her approach and very enthusiastic about real estate. She loves her job. She is an excellent communicator with a wonderful attitude, very pleasant and friendly personality and is a pleasure to work with. Michelle clearly has a thorough knowledge and understanding of the real estate market in general and particularly in her area. She provided some great presentation ideas and made some of her own pictures and furnishings available to complete the finishing touches. She has realistic pricing expectations and a marketing strategy designed to obtain the best possible price for the property. We were particularly impressed when, within a week of having the house open, she came to us with three signed offers. Good ones too! After the sale Michelle kept on top of the situation at every stage through to settlement making sure that it all ran smoothly. We will definitely be using Michelle

Michelle Hawkins has been managing my properties in Wembley and Wembley Downs for many years. I have been very pleased with her professionalism and exceptional service. She would do everything she can to get the property leased at a good rent. The tenants she has selected for me have been excellent after a careful selection process. I have never had any issues with the tenants. Property inspections are very thorough and any maintenance issues are dealt with promptly. I receive a monthly statement before the end of each month and the monthly rent always gets transferred to my account promptly before the last day of the month. I have referred Michelle to many of my friends for property management. They are all very pleased with Michelle and her team's service. I have no hesitation in recommending Michelle Hawkins to anyone for property management. Michelle Hawkins has been managing my properties in Wembley and Wembley Downs for many years.

I am writing to recommend Michelle Hawkins of Hawkins Smith Property Group who has acted as agent for us in the sale of our house in Pangbourne St. Wembley. Our house is now under offer and is due to settle on September 29, 2014. We have no doubt that Michelle has been instrumental in achieving this sale for us at the full asking price. We initially approached Michelle in June after she was recommended to us by a fencing contractor. Michelle came in with a realistic price which met our expectations but which was also accurate and achievable. As she understood the market and recognized the need to get our house on the market quickly, she arranged in conjunction with a wonderful interior decorator, Louise House, to do a substantial amount of work on our property and to present our house for sale within three weeks. We live in Queensland and were unable to return to Perth so we were dependent on Michelle to manage all the details. At all times she was extremely professional and meticulous in attending to the house and the many details necessary to prepare, and advertise our house ahead of the sale. Many of these details she attended to herself, not only personally purchasing plants for the garden but then planting and watering them. She generously lent us her own complimentary furniture for display and personally managed the actual furnishing and display of the house for us. The result was that our house was completely ready for sale, beautifully presented and advertised to a very high level of quality within three weeks. More than this, Michelle has graciously spent substantial time speaking to us over the phone, not only concerning all the details of the advertising, presentation, pricing and sale of the house itself but she has very kindly taken time to discuss our attachment and regret at parting with a family home which we have lived in, in the past and loved. Very importantly, at no time did we feel that she was unavailable or too busy to speak to us or answer any of our questions. Michelle has been meticulous in attending to our property and its sale. She opened the home three times a week, kept us informed after the home opens, attended to the details of the strata title, and most importantly engaged with potential buyers listening to their comments and perceptions regarding our property and informing us of changes we could undertake to make our house more saleable. We have found Michelle to be gracious, honest and generous at all times in her dealings with us. After numerous phone calls and a meeting at our house in Perth (when I was finally able to travel) we feel we have come to know and to like her very much. We will certainly turn to Michelle again in the future when we have another house to sell, or we wish to buy, and we have no hesitation in recommending her. We are very grateful to her and to the fencing contractor who recommended her to us.

Dear Michelle, Just a quick note to let you know how pleased we were with the way you handled the marketing and sale of our late mother's home in Scarborough. From the beginning you were punctual, professional, friendly and full of enthusiasm for the job. This showed up in the way you went about marketing the home, keeping us fully informed at all times right through to getting an awesome sale price! We couldn't have been more pleased. I would highly recommend your service to anyone. Thank you again.

I am writing this to not only thank Michelle for all her effort in selling our property but should anyone be looking for a real estate agent that goes the extra mile and is not just a cowboy that jumped on in the mining boom when houses sold themselves. We originally brought off Michelle and when we saw how she operated signed her up straight away to sell our Wembley property in 2009 and when it came to sell our Woodlands property in 2016, only one phone call was made and that was to Michelle. Her keenness and knowledge is second to none, also her contacts of people who can assist in matters to get your property in the best presentable condition to sell is second to none. With all who assist being there on time, in quick time and more than reasonably priced and quality flawless. These are the things you don't think about when you go to sell, as it is a big decision which you have made, but Michelle is there, calm headed with no pushy advice, guiding and assisting you along the way to make the whole process as painless, stress free and ultimately achieve the sale of your property at the highest price. I would have no hesitations in recommending Michelle to sell your house and she will always be my first port of call for any future real-estate needs. Your Truthfully David Beattie 6.11.2016

15 May 2017 Re: Testimony about Sales Experience with Michelle Hawkins for the sale of our home located at 5 Drew Street Wembley. Dear Michelle Thank you for your professional and delightful support in selling our home. We particularly enjoy your local expertise and practical support. We are happy to testify about any of the sales experiences with you. As many people may experience, selling a home can be more stressful than buying one. Our previous experiences with other real estate agents have been mostly negative. Despite their persuasive sales pitch in the beginning, when it comes to the process of selling, they usually asserted us, to the point of intimidation, to sell quickly at below market price. In contrast, your patience, connection with the local community and appreciation of the property and its future growth have been very crucial for us. We had witnessed these professional skills demonstrated in many of your home open, long before we purchased our property in Wembley. Our home was sold one month after the listing, despite property prices in Perth being on a significant decline. However, your expertise and availability to have a thorough collaboration have been the fundamental driver in our quick sale. From positioning a particular pillow on a sofa to finding the right roofman, the attention to detail and the can-do attitude were impressive. We appreciate your generous assistance, and it is our pleasure to recommend you as the number one real estate agent to anyone. Warm Regards

Throughout my adult years I have had the experience of purchasing a few houses. I had dealt with many real estate agents until I met Michelle Hawkins from Michelle Hawkins Real Estate. It is a very hard decision to choose an agent with many conflicting ideas from agents as giving advice and price, fees and marketing ideas. I had dealt with Michelle on several occasions previously and had sold my home for more than the market price at the time and her fees were very reasonable. She was always prompt, gave me a detailed list of the clients that attended the home open and gave solid advice. When it came to selling my house in Wembley I had no hesitation but to contact Michelle. She was always there for every step of the way. She answered every call and email, no matter what time of the day it was. Her professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. I have spoken very highly to other friends/colleagues to list their home with Michelle and they have done so being very pleased with her appraisal and decisions. I would always highly recommend Michelle if anyone is considering searching for a new home or considering selling their existing home. Thanks again to Michelle from Michelle Hawkins Real Estate for being such a pleasure to work with. Rating 5/5 G Pearson 7.11.2016

Over a five year period I watched in despair as my investment property was gradually wrecked whilst being managed by one of the top, award winning management companies in West Australia. The company failed to update the property condition report between tenants and after a major upgrade of floor coverings and installation of a new kitchen and laundry. Due to their incompetence an almost new dishwasher was thrown out, the gardens were ruined and the driveway partially wrecked. Due to the high staff turnover within the company, different property managers inspected the property at the 3 monthly inspections and none reported the new kitchen. In fact they did not even realise that the tenants had a dog or that other family members were now living in the house without permission. It was a tremendous relief when Michelle from Michelle Hawkins Real Estate took over the management of the property. In record time she ensured that the dishwasher was replaced and all damages repaired. I was most impressed with her professionalism, her attention to even the smallest detail and her highly effective organisational skills. Now that Jenny Fraser has joined her, I now have the peace of mind knowing that the property is well cared for by a small team of true professionals. It is essential to have consistency when managing properties, especially when the owner lives overseas. Michelle and her team now also manage my sons property. They assisted in having the property renovated, organising quotes and installations for new floor coverings and window treatments. In addition they found an exceptional handyman who renovated the gardens and repainted the whole property at a very reasonable price. I can highly recommend Michelle at Michelle Hawkins Real Estate and her team of 5 to anybody who cares about their investment properties. They go above and beyond to ensure the properties are well maintained and owners and tenants are looked after and treated fairly. Best wishes Eileen Mackenzie Xabia, Alicante. Spain

My family has sold several homes with Michelle Hawkins of Michelle Hawkins Real Estate over the years. We have found her services to be excellent and she has performed to our expectations in all different markets. Michelles honest, informative approach has provided us with confidence and peace of mind in her knowledge of the market from the time of signing the Listing Agreement until the sale has been completed. Michelles keen eye for attention to details has meant that the minor maintenance items have been addressed prior to the sale of the home. With both of the sales we were kept informed during the marketing process and Michelle achieved the results we were aiming for within our desired time frame. I have no hesitation recommending Michelle Hawkins to anyone that is looking for a hardworking, honest, knowledgeable real estate person that has a passion and positive approach to her sales career. 24.3.17
