Dear Scott Re: Sale of “Edrom Park” 48 Dunns Road, Mt Martha I write on this day, as settlement has taken place of my above property, to provide my heartfelt appreciation and thanks to yourself, Scott, and your supportive staff member, Stan Katz. I have spent the past 17 years enjoying and adoring, as we always mentioned, “the best piece of real estate and land in Mt Martha”. The amazing qualities and lifestyle that ‘Edrom Park’ showcased was undoubtedly upheld and embraced to the highest level possible whilst for Exclusive Private Sale with Scott Banks Real Estate. Reflective of our first meeting mid 2015 at a similar showcase property in Mt Martha it was your individual style, experience and amazing professionalism, that was instantly appealing. These appeals ultimately lead me to discuss the sale of my cherished property ‘Edrom Park’. With exciting new ventures that lie head I am so pleased to have met the Scott Banks Real Estate Group and place your Agency as the No.1 Real Estate office to associate all future dealings with. Scott, it’s been an absolute delight dealing with you. Many thanks & kindest regards, Lisa Bedin


Thank you for your great assistance in finalising the sale of our clients property, which will probably remain in your memory as the most time-consuming and difficult sale of your career. At all times you were available to assist our clients and you approach was a very professional one and was very much appreciated by us. Your tenacity shows you were well named. We would have no hesitation to recommending you to other clients.


I am writing to express my appreciation for the way in which you marketed my home and so quickly achieved a sale price that was right up to my expectations. You hear many stories about how manipulative, misleading and tricky real estate agents can be. In your dealings with me you certainly proved that integrity still exists within the industry. You inspected my house, you gave an opinion of value which, from my personal research of properties within the area I knew to be an excellent price for such a property, and you promised that you would bring to inspect the property only those potential buyers who were genuine about their financial capacity and their interest in a home such as mine. You delivered on all counts. You told me you would go out and find a buyer. You did not confront me with excessive advertising and marketing charges. I was not inconvenienced by open days or short warnings about bringing people to inspect the property. There were inspections by only four different parties before the sale, which is testament to your policy of screening potential buyers so that you bring to a home only those whose buying specifications and financial capacity are a match for that particular property. Without hesitation I would choose to go with Scott Banks again should the need arise and would recommend you to all my family, friends and colleagues as a real estate agent you can trust to achieve the best possible price in the shortest possible time.


All done, all over, thanks so much. You are really an excellent hand holder and calmer downer. Could not have coped otherwise.


I recently had a difficult situation as I am currently residing overseas. My Property at the Linx apartments in Prahran was let 6 months ago. My tenant had to vacate early so I engaged the services of Scott Banks Real Estate to deal with finding me a new tenant and handling the condition report of which there was an issue to be sorted. Initially Scott Banks spoke with me personally and then he and his General Manager Gina Mathioulakis managed the situation with promptness and professionalism. It was reassuring and refreshing. I have dealt with many other agents in area and have quite often been disappointed. Everything was handled superbly, photos, script, advertising and most importantly finding me the right tenant. It certainly took the pressure off, particularly from afar. I highly recommend the services of Scott Banks and I look forward to them handling all my real estate requirements in rental and sales in the future. Yours Sincerely, Tania Jeanne Ephraims


Hi Gina, I would also like to thank you for helping us all make an pleasant/easy transition into our new place. it has been very enjoyable.


Hi Gina, I hope the new year finds you well. Thank you for being a wonderful estate agent, it has been a real pleasure to be able to communicate with you and I appreciate your understanding, efficiency and willingness to be of aid. If you have any questions or anything, as always, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thanks again


I found the service I received to be exceptional!


It is understood that you are one of the best real estate agencies in Melbourne. I am sure I will get the best service from you.


When we decided to sell the family home, the service offered by your sales staff was second to none!


Just a short note to say a big thank you to all your staff. We are delighted that our house has sold, and would like to express our thanks for your professionalism and you understanding of our needs, as a client. We would have no hesitation in recommending your company. Once again thank you for a successful and of course happy sale. Please pass on our thanks to your staff.


Just a short note to thank you for negotiating, that was in the circumstances in the market, an excellent price for our home. Our patience together with the agreed marketing programme gave the exposure that was required to bring the potential purchasers to the door. Your results appear to have brought an excellent result for both purchaser and vendor. As advised our other properties which you have managed for the last four years may be for sale in a couple of years and we will discuss their marketing at that time. In the mean time continue to manage them in a manner that ensures they stay in good condition.


Yes it is a great result for us. You are to be congratulated on your initiative in negotiating a sale acceptable to both parties.


This letter is to express my sincere appreciation of the way in which the sale was handled. I am naturally very pleased with the result and wish to thank you for your personal efforts on my behalf.



I purchased an apartment in Preston (my first property) from Athol in February 2016. Athol was trustworthy, reliable and great to deal with throughout the purchase process. His friendly nature and honesty made what some people might describe as a 'stressful' or 'daunting' experience the complete opposite, instead an exciting and enjoyable sales process.


Athol Hodgetts was my real estate agent when purchasing my apartment in Preston. I found Athol to be extremely professional at all times throughout the transaction. His knowledge of the property market at the time was helpful in my decision. My negotiation with the vendor via Athol was efficient and timely in delivery and I was very happy with the outcome. My settlement process was expedient and ran smoothly thanks to Athol's efforts to help me move into my property quickly as I had to vacate my other property. Athol has a pleasant and charming demeanour and I felt he was honest and operated in a transparent way. The purchase was smooth, efficient and I felt that I was in good hands and being looked after. Athol's communication skills were excellent and that was am important factor for me. All my questions were answered honestly and without delay. I can't speak highly enough of Athol and my dealings with him. I would have no hesitation in recommending Athol to any prospective purchaser or vendor.


Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for your excellent service that you provided for me during the course of my recent purchase.

When we met, I gave you a short list of my essential criteria, much of which was not negotiable and requested that you keep me in mind should something pop up.

You did keep in touch and suggested a few properties to me which met about 90% of my list, did not at any stage seem frustrated or exasperated, despite my rejection of several suggested units and eventually came up with a property that fitted my criteria perfectly.

You retained your pleasant disposition, friendly manner and boundless patience throughout this time and even during the process of the recent purchase.

I was amazed and slightly in awe!

This was an excellent outcome for all of us; seller, agent and buyer. The vendor did not have to waste time nor money on advertising and multiple inspections and I was able to obtain the exact type of property that was on my "wish" list and contracts were signed as soon as practicable.

I would have no hesitation in recommending you as an agent nor your company Scott Banks Real Estate Group as an agency for any potential vendor and investor.

Yours sincerely

My husband and I have been clients of David for the past 2 years. In this time we have been extremely pleased with his work and the help he has given us setting up our portfolio. What I like the most about his service is that he is always contactable. He is always thorough in his research and his time has been valuable to us.


Thank you for the flowers and compassion shown to [our tenant], It truly means a lot to us to work with professionals that care.

We are very appreciative and extremely happy with the level of professionalism and service provided from both the leasing and sales team.

We look forward to continue to work with Scott Banks and the team.

Kind Regards,

Ken Poon

A big thank you to Gina and her team. I was looking for a rental and Gina went above and beyond what any normal real estate agent would have done.

Professional, efficient and caring which made this awkward time an easy transition and the follow up communication mixed with a genuine care really shines through. Again, Gina - Thank you for all your hard work and care. Not many like you in the real estate world!
