Sale of 4/39 Raymond Road, Neutral Bay 2089.

Karl and the Hockeys real estate team demonstrated exceptional communication, informed market appreciation and industry leading professional service. Karl's honest and personable approach gave us great comfort in knowing that the management and sale of our Neutral Bay property was acted upon in our best interest. We would not hesitate in recommending Karl or the Hockeys real estate team to facilitate a sale or undertake property management.

Alastair N - March 2016
Neutral Bay

Karl conducted most of his negotiations with my son on the sale of our Neutral Bay property and I was not so directly involved with his marketing and execution of the sale. It was my impression however that Karl was very energetic and efficient in managing the renovations on the property and communicated with us frequently. He was very approachable and I would recommend him to future customers in the property market. Good luck Karl!

Karl Hockey Review

I am a solicitor and so have had a significant amount of contact with real estate agents over the years - I was especially impressed with Karl Hockey and his experienced team when looking for and acquiring a property recently. Karl was always quick and always open when responding to my requests and had all the relevant facts concerning areas, prices and rentals immediately available. Karl would always make himself available to answer enquiries or to show properties or to assist in the process when dealing with valuers, etc. My recommendation extends to the ongoing situation of the rental of the property - I have found Karl and his rental team to be equally efficient in dealing with rental issues and liaising with the tenants and certainly as to the financial accounting side of the rental.

I have no hesitation in recommending Karl as an excellent real estate agent in all aspects of that profession and would equally have no hesitation in utilising his services again of a sale, purchase or other rental. Michael Sainsbury

Michael - September 2016
Review on Karl Hockey

Joan F - September 2016
Stellar Agent

Karl is dedicated to his role and provides exceptional customer service while delivering honest, pragmatic and motivational business ethic.

Jake S - September 2016
Professional, always available, outstanding service..

Karl Hockey has been the most honest and professional agent that I have dealt with. He has not only always been available when I need him when leasing, selling and purchasing properties, but has also managed to break a record in my building leasing my property at above market rent, by helping us present our property well and highlighting all the properties features well.

He does what he says he will do. He does it on time and takes the extra time to do it well and honestly.

He is an asset and apart of my team when dealing with real estate.

If you are looking for someone, look no further. You will not be disappointed. Thanks Karl.

Andrew - September 2019
Karl achieved a great result!

From the beginning Karl gave us great service. From the marketing plan and photos (two sessions) to the sale process and on the day of auction. Karl was energetic, possessed a meticulous eye for detail and worked tirelessly to help us throughout the marketing. We are really happy with the result that Karl and the Hockey team delivered!

Peter - September 2016
Five star agent ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We can't speak highly enough of Karl and the team at Hockeys. From the market appraisal to advice on how to present the house, securing trades at short notice and his excellent communication, it has all been first class. His superior marketing skills and high level negotiating ability resulted in a sale prior to auction that was well above our expectations. As vendors we looked to Karl as a subject matter expert and we were not disappointed. To potential vendors, listen and act on the advice from Hockeys and you won't go wrong. I look forward to working with Karl in the future and we highly recommend him.

Andrew C - October 2016
I cannot recommend highly enough, good price and advice

I used Karl as he has a high record of sales in St Leonards. I was hesitant with spending a lot on property styling, however after getting some advice from Karl it helped me understand the property was very unique and it needed furniture for inspections. Karl guided me through it every step of the way and in turn it was a fantastic investment as not only did it look great but I sold my apartment for so much more than what I expected. He was in constant communication with me, and if i needed to call him at night or on the weekends he always took the time to chat and offer me help and advice. I was very happy with the result and glad I chose Karl.

Excellent Job!

Michael - March 2017

Great agent, who know’s his stuff and keeps you across the process from the word go

Karl was a great pleasure to work with, for the second time. We purchased our property from Karl and it was a no brainer that he would be selling our property too. Karl’s knowledge of the area and what was going on in the market at the time was a great tool for us. Karl kept us up to date on progress with viewings, contracts of sale, other documents required during the sales process and when people showed no interest. We would thoroughly recommend Karl and the entire Hockeys team to anyone looking to sell their property in the St Leonards area.
