Agent Reviews

Mr. & Mrs. Jarvis- Ryde

Excellent communication and negotiation skills.

Judith- Denistone

Having used Ben previously to sell a property, we knew what he was like and that he is so easy to work with. Not being a pushy sales person, makes it easy to understand what the various sales options and he assisted us in optimising the sale.

Donna M- Macquarie Park

I found Ben's customer/client service exceptional. He always ensured he gave weekly, if not daily updates. His market knowledge was sound, thorough and up-to-date. He was honest with all questions asked, without being unrealistic, whilst managing the clients expectations for their end result.

Margareta L- Macquarie Park

Ben Boutros made my first property sale stress-less, a process that other friends have told me was something that they wanted to forget as it was so ghastly. He was quietly efficient. He always was contactable and turned up when he said he would, and rang you when he said he would. His communication skills are unsurpassable. He always listened to your concerns, and answered them. You never felt rushed. His genuineness is a first in Sydney, where impersonal business relationships are the rule.This, with his knowledge and expertise in the property field, made the experience actually positive! He also was an unfaze-able expert in negotiation and obtained for me a very much better-than-hoped-for price. From an older person's and first vendor's point-of-view, to use a quaint term, Ben is also a gentleman; a very rare quality. these days. I would highly recommended him to anyone wishing to buy or sell.

Cassandra & Scott L- North Ryde

Outstanding Agent Experience. Our experience with Ben was superior. I was selling my late grandmothers home on behalf of the family. Ben was compassionate to our family during this time, was honest and open with us and made my family feel comfortable with the process. During the advertising period Ben was always available to assist with questions and queries and provided support and feedback during this time in a timely and professional manner. The auctioneer that Ben secured for us was outstanding; he made us feel comfortable with the process and made the auction run in a smooth and relaxed atmosphere. Overall I was extremely impressed with Ben and Ray White North Ryde and I would recommend them for both the selling and buying experience. I want to thank Ben for making an emotional process run smoothly for our family. We are extremely grateful for the humanity you showed to us. Kindest regards.

Kevork T- Macquarie Park

Selling a house is never easy, but Ben made us feel comfortable from the get go. His sociable personality and professional manner made us feel comfortable and confident, but more importantly he was open and honest with us throughout. He didn't create unrealistic expectations nor tried to influence our decision, he was there to give subjective opinion when required, but was also courteous enough to give us the time required to make our decision. Thanks Ben for helping us reach our goal

Brian P- North Ryde

Ben was very helpful and I was very impressed with his knowledge. As my work involves being on the road all day he was able to fit meetings/signing of documents sometimes out of hours to meet in with my schedule. I would recommend Ray White North Ryde and Ben without hesitation.

From the get go, Ben has showed great balance between professional and mateship client relationships. Communication was great, feedback and updates were regular. Ben made a number of predictions (regards to time and sale price) and sure enough, it happened. This illustrates his market knowledge. Further one of the sale prices exceeded the market evaluation level by $20,000. There in sporting great negotiation skills. Very happy with the service Ben provided. I look forward to the next dealings.

Brett L- Macquarie Park

When I met Ben, I had to choose between several local real estate agents who were competing for the sale of father's unit in Macquarie Park. I found Ben to be totally engaging & understanding of my requirements & my father's requirements. He took the time to explain several options about the sale & was always acting in a professional manner without being over the top. His local knowledge was very precise & through the course of the quick sale process, he was able to offer sound advice that made sense & added value to the sale. Given the location & high market demand in the area, the sale time was extremely quick, & the process went extremely smoothly. The sale process was supported by sound marketing from Ray White & I have no hesitation in recommending Ben Boutros to other potential vendors within the North Ryde area. Great work & well done. The Lever family are grateful for the way in which the sale process was completed & with a minimum of fuss.

Gerarda L- Baulkham Hills

Ben is very knowledgeable about the area and was able to discuss a realistic price range. I particularly liked that he talked to us about what they "would" get, not what they could get, or starting prices, etc (as we had discussed with other agents), and then delivered on the price he quoted to us.

Nicole & Matthew C- North Ryde

We would like to thank Ben Boutros for being an amazing agent who helped us acquire our new home. The moment the house went up on domain, we enquired & Ben's professionalism & down to earth attitude was a breath of fresh air...especially in the real estate industry!! He was more than willing to answer all our questions and always kept his word about calling us back if he needed to get more information about the property! We feel very confident recommending him to our family & friends, & hopefully have the pleasure to engage with him in a future date ourselves! Thank you Ray White North Ryde Team for making our transition from being a tenant to home owner seamless!

Nick N- Baulkham Hills

I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for the excellent work you did and made the experience of purchasing the property through Ray White North Ryde a very pleasant one. The professionalism, honesty and efficiency you gave me was hugely appreciated. I am very glad to secure the property prior to auction as the current market condition may impose un-necessary risks if I have not act quickly enough. Of course, this would not happen without the help of you. I have no hesitation to recommend you to my friends and would be pleased to deal with you again when the time comes.

Yazdiar & Kermiz M- Macquarie Park

After considering a number of agents, we chose Ben to sell our property as we felt Ben was enthusiastic, personable, professional and had a strong insight of the local area. Ben also had a very impressive track record of sales in the area. Having recently sold, we would highly recommend Ben to anyone wanting to sell. Ben was there to guide us with the advertising, presentation and strategy to obtain the optimal results for our property. He worked promptly and effectively in the lead up to the first opening. He was proactive and kept us informed of progress. He was easy to discuss things with and was available anytime. Not only did Ben exceed our expectations by achieving a record price for the block but he did it within a few days of the first opening. In short, we had a very positive experience with Ben. His market knowledge, contacts, people skills, negotiating skills and overall attitude, make him the perfect choice to entrust your property.

Annabel B- Macquarie Park

Ben Boutros and Adam Caruso recently sold my unit in Macquarie Park. I chose to sell my property with them because I knew that they had some great success in my area and I must say that they certainly lived up to, and exceeded my expectations. They were extremely professional and attentive during the process. I received a phone call every day, even when there was nothing to tell. They were respectful of my home, my time and the fact that this was a very stressful period for me. They put me at ease and, because of this, I had absolute faith that I had picked the right team to sell my home. On top of everthing else, Ben & Adam achieved a sale price higher than what I was hoping for. I would not hesitate in recommending Ben or Adam to sell your property.

Edward M- Macquarie Park

Ben Boutros, handled the sale of my deceased brother's unit at Macquarie Park. Ben advised us of likely value of the unit and the degree of refurbishment required to achieve the highest possible price. He put us in touch with local service companies who carry out the refurbishment and assisted us in ensuring the work was carried out properly. Once the refurbishment was completed, the unit was advertisied for sale and sold within a week at a price above what we had expected. Throughout the whole period, Ben kept us fully informed of developments by phone, email and meetings at the unit. I am happy to recommend Ben to anyone considering sale or purchase of Real Estate in the North Ryde area.

Dennis K- Ryde
