I would like to pass on my feedback from a wonderful 8-year long relationship with Caroline as managing agent. She has always acted in my best interests in regard to the property, been highly responsive to any queries or issues, and a pleasure to deal with.

Lindsay Phiilips, Blues Point Rd, McMahons:

Caroline Eastaway has managed our investment unit in McMahons Point for over 14 years. Throughout this time, she has provided outstanding service.

Caroline is very pleasant to deal with and is exceptionally efficient. She has always had good judgement and gives sound relevant advice. It is always a pleasure to communicate with her, as she has a positive can-do attitude and always achieves excellent results..

Caroline pro-actively identifies and resolves problems (such as finding new tenants and engaging tradesmen), and generally makes our lives “hassle-free”.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Caroline to manage any real estate property.

Amanda Judd, 614 Pacific Highway:

Caroline has shown the upmost professionalism in managing our investment unit over several years. When we decided to sell Caroline managed the handover with Croll sales agent Gayle Clifford. Their experience and attention to detail was comforting and made the process simple. My thanks to Caroline and Gayle on their work especially during these difficult times of Covid.

DB, Anderson St, Neutral Bay:

I have owned my investment property for 17 years and during that time it has been managed by a number of agents and agencies. Caroline Eastaway at Croll Neutral Bay was recommended to me some years ago by a friend to whom Caroline had been recommended some years prior, a chain which speaks for itself. I have been extremely pleased with the level of professionalism and service Caroline brings to the role, both in terms of managing the property and finding new tenants, I understand my tenants also trust her and enjoy dealing with her which is important. Croll provides an excellent framework of support if Caroline is ever unavailable, and all this for a very reasonable fee compared to some agencies I spoke to. I recommend Caroline and Croll unreservedly and cannot foresee a time when I would want to look for a new agent

Amanda Judd, Pacific Highway, Chatswood:

Caroline Eastaway has managed my properties for nearly 15 years and continues to display the upmost honesty, integrity and resilience. Caroline manages any situation that arises and is proactive with tenants and strata. Even during times of Covid, her expertise in negotiating the market has given me peace of mind. I stay with Croll Real Estate because they have Caroline.

Anna Troung, 133 Ben Boyd Rd, Neutral Bay:

Caroline has been our Property Manager for the past 6 years. She is a true professional and has been supportive, knowledgeable and always pleasant to work with. As our Property Manager, she is always willing to assist us and provide guidance when needed. No matter how busy she can be, Caroline always finds the time to address any concerns or matters within an efficient and timely manner.

When we vacated our property, she handled everything in such a professional yet personable manner. I would be more than happy to deal with Croll again knowing that Caroline is part of their Senior Team.

Thank you Caroline for everything. You have been our renting experience easy and stress free

Joshua Freiberg, 17 Finlayson St, Lane Cove:

Hey Caroline,

I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for helping us secure our new home at 17 Finlayson St, Lane Cove.

As you know after a poor experience with another agency who we were trying to lease off, we were left with less than a week before our current lease was up and we had nowhere to move.

You took the time to understand our position and then went above and beyond working with strata, your landlord and I to get it all done in world record time.

You're response time and availability was always on point and speaking with you a pleasure - despite the pressures of PM in general plus throwing Covid in the mix - you were happy to talk to me and kept me informed each step of the way.

I deal with with a lot of agents for work and really do mean it when I say you're a cut above the rest.

Thanks for caring and being so kind. You and the team at Croll Real Estate are simply word class.

Regards,

Josh Freiberg | realestate.com.au

Catlin Kelly, 81-91 Military Rd, Neutral Bay:

I couldn't be happier with the property management service I receive from Caroline and the team at Croll. As a landlord based overseas, I need an agent who is my trusted advisor. I rely on Croll's accurate and timely advice as to the current market standards and conditions to ensure my property is occupied by good quality tenants at market standard rent. I rely on Croll's prompt action to assess and resolve all tenant and maintenance issues. I find the team at Croll to be accessible, responsive, insightful, personable, trustworthy and efficient. Would recommend them to anyone.

Aaron Robards, 5a Priory Rd, Waverton:

Caroline managed my rental property for 7 happy years. Always friendly & professional, she found me the ideal tenants & kept the place running smoothly with a minimum of fuss. This was my first experience on the other side and I couldn't have asked for a better property manager. Highly recommended.

Tracey Barnes, 1/7 Ballantyne St, Mosman:

Dear Caroline,

Thankyou so much for your friendly and professional assistance over the last 10 years, firstly when I was a tenant of yours, and then when I bought my investment apartment, I was able to rely on you to property manage this.

I have no hesitation in recommending your services. I have now sold my apartment, and wish you the very very best.

Thankyou.

Kind Regards,

Justine Duffy, 646 Willoughby Rd, Willoughby:

Caroline was recommended by a friend whose family had used her for a very long time to manage their units in Mosman. Caroline impressed us from the beginning with her open communication, promptness, professionalism and advice.

With us being located four hours away from Sydney with a busy life with work and young children Caroline kept us up to date on our property and managed any maintenance issues quickly as they arose.

Caroline was always contactable by phone or email and very prompt in her response time. We greatly appreciated her expertise in managing our property and we will definitely use her in the future and recommend her to others requiring property management.

Jarrod Baker, 339a Alfred St, Neutral Bay:

Hi Caroline,

My wife and I unexpectedly moved oversees soon after purchasing our first home. After completing a long and thorough for the right property and departing with it so quickly we wanted a Property Manager who loved our apartment as much as we did. Caroline and Croll team were the natural choice.

Caroline's knowledge of local renters, the unique lower North Shore market and our wishes as new owners is second to none. She's a prompt communicator, the ultimate professional and we continue to love working with her. Despite being on the other side of the world our minds are at ease knowing that Caroline and the team are at the helm. We'd recommend them to anyone!

Sim and David, 4/6 Bickell Rd, Mosman:

Finding a property Manager that takes care of the tenants as well as the property is hard to come by - our experience with Caroline was just that. Caroline went out of her way to ensure that we were always communicated with when changes happened and when the property went on the market - (a particularly tricky time) Caroline ensured that the tenants in the building had as little impact as possible. I was hoping she would find our next property but no such luck. I would definitely recommend her services.

Lea Kannar-Lichtenberger, 8 Rangers Rd, Cremorne:

Dear Caroline, Andrew and Nooi,

I wished to write to you to say how wonderful it has been dealing with not only you but the whole Croll team.

Myself and my late husband Jens has been dealing with Croll for over 20 years and there has never been a point in all that time that we have felt unattended. Your attention to detail and the way nothing is a problem to deal with, not to mention the respect that is shown to my tradespeople has made my experience with Croll fantastic.

I am sad that without a current rental property I will not be contacting your office. Having said that, it does make me feel that if I were to invest in another rental property I would purchase it in your area just so you could administer it for me

I know I sound a bit gushing but I could not speak more highly of all the team at Croll Realty

Warm Regards,

Lea

Stuart, 16/81 Gerard Lane, Cremorne:

I've been lucky enough to rent in two properties managed by Croll over the past 5 years.
During this time, any questions or requests I've had have been responded to promptly and professionally, and solutions provided just as quick.
Croll has been an absolute pleasure to deal with and made the rental process very easy. I look forward to hopefully dealing with Croll again in the future.

Cheers

"Caroline and the Croll team have been an absolute pleasure to deal with.
Croll are professional, prompt and always accommodating to find a solution.
As a tenant renting and also relocating from interstate, the transition was seemless. One of the best rental agencies in Australia I've ever dealt with"

Arianwen Parkes-Lockwood, 115, Milson Rd:

We rented a lovely apartment in Cremorne Point with Caroline Carroll at Croll and were very happy to have Croll as our agency. They were friendly and prompt to resolve any issues we had, and Caroline is really great to touch base with whenever we've considered returning to that lovely part of the world. Croll always have beautiful rental properties and we look forward to renting with them again next time we're based in Sydney

Daniel Kydd, 115, Milson Rd:

Hi Caroline,

Your efficient and caring property management has been a blessing during the years that we have rented through Croll. We often hear from friends the nightmare experience they have had when renting elsewhere. That has never been the case for us and your attentive and through approach has always been fair and reasonable.

Thank you Caroline and thank you Croll!

Jo Jones, 64/106 High Street:

Hi Caroline

Just a quick note to wish you a great 2017.

Things have begun very hectic in my world, but wanted to thank you and your colleagues for such a wonderful and positive experience in my dealings with you.

I began renting until 64/106 High Street over 2 years now and from day one the experience was a wonderful one. You made yourself available at all times to deal with all matters in an amazingly prompt and professional manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services from a rental perspective to anyone be it as a potential landlord or tenant.

My partner and I will be looking to place our property on the market in the next few months and have no hesitation in coming to you first for guidance.

Again thanks for everything you assisted me with and I hope you have a great year.

The Gray Family, 59 Shadforth Street, Mosman:

Our family have had a relationship with Croll Real Estate for almost 40 years, over which time Croll have managed tenanted properties on our behalf, along with the sale of various properties. Most recently, the team at Croll Real Estate worked extremely hard to finalise the sale of our family's 4 unit block in Mosman. A changing market made this process harder than we envisaged, however, Andrew and his dedicated staff walked us through the process and worked tirelessly, right up to the auction, to secure us the best deal. As it turns out, this extended to post-auction as well, when the sale was finally achieved. We cannot speak highly enough of Andrew and his team at Croll Real Estate and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone involved in property on the North Shore.

C Heymans, 339a Alfred St, Neutral Bay:

Caroline / Alex,

Robert Hadler, 1/50 Grasmere Rd, Cremorne:

Over the last decade, Caroline has been the best property manager I have ever had - she has always secured good tenants, been on top of any issues, and looked after the property well.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Caroline as a property manager for any prospective landlord looking to lease their property through Croll Real Estate.

Cottage Rentals Pty Limited, 6 Bickell Road, Mosman:

Recently I approached Andrew Croll regarding selling a small block of units in Mosman that had been owned by a family company since the seventies. Andrew immediately organised a marketing strategy and schedule and auction date. He and Gayle Clifford were available at any time for the numerous queries I had and he and his team worked solidly with inspections and contracts of sale etc. Caroline Carroll from the property management department spent a considerable amount of time liaising with the existing tenants, so the whole process went extremely smoothly. The resultant price at auction was FAR above my expectations and without Andrew's expertise and hard work I'm sure I would never have achieved such a fantastic result. I'm very grateful to him and his team. Margaret Partridge.

Margaret Partridge, 6 Bickell Rd, Mosman:

My family company has owned a small block of units in Mosman since the late seventies. Every since the date of purchase it has been managed by Croll Real Estate.
About ten years ago Caroline Carroll of Crolls became responsible for the maintenance and management of the units and has done so ever since.
Having been involved with real estate for many years I have been totally delighted with her expertise and diligence. Her rapport with the tenants has been extremely helpful and there have been times when she has been responsible for remodelling, choosing materials etc and she has done it with great style and flair. At all times she has been mindful of getting the best result (cost wise) for the owner, whilst keeping the tenants comfortable and happy.
I cannot recommend her highly enough to anyone considering having their property managed by an agent.

Caroline Carroll is an outstanding person with extrodinary skills in quality work and multi-tasking, and is a credit to the company.

Saffron Ross and Alex Waley have also demonstrated commitment, flexibility, understanding and attention to detail.

Outstanding company and a great team.

Mary Royal, 125 Holt Ave, Cremorne:

Caroline Carroll has been managing my rental property for several years. During this time Caroline has always provided exemplary service, in the most friendliest and professional manner.
The most valued aspect, of my relationship with Caroline, is that I trust her completely to look after my best interests, as a property owner, whilst providing the same level of commitment to my tenant.
This has resulted in my having a perfect tenant. Further, with Caroline's advice, I am confident of maximising the profit on my rental property.
I highly recommend Caroline personally and Croll Real Estate to any property owner.

Sarah Lauren, 5a Priory Rd, Waverton:


As first home buyers we were unsure of and weary on what to expect with Property Managers, however Caroline Carroll and Croll Real Estate ensured the experience was a pleasure. Caroline and the team were very informative, clear on the leasing/management process, always available and most importantly very prompt to resolve property issues or attend to our questions. We would recommend Caroline and Croll Real Estate's services to family and friends – a sign of quality Property Management.

Julian Davidge, 5/66 Kurraba Rd, Neutral Bay:

Dear Caroline,

RE: Property Management of 5/66 Kurrabba Road, Neutral Bay.

Just a short note to say thank you for all of your help over the last 7 years with all matters relating to my rental property at 5/66 Kurrabba Road Neutral Bay. Being based overseas your management of all arising issues with the property and the day to day grievances/requests of tenants has been fantastic. Unfortunately the nature of my work means I usually have little time to carefully read and respond to non work related matters, as such your ability to ensure all issues were resolved in a manner acceptable to tenants and myself in terms of timing, practicality and pricing has been greatly appreciated.

Should you ever need a reference for any prospective landlords or future employer, then please feel free to give them my contact details.

Kind regards,

Julian Davidge

David Butchart, 20 Cairo St, Cammeray:

Dear Colin and Andrew,

I just thought I would send you an email to give you feedback of my and my wife's dealings with Caroline Carroll while we were tenants at 20 Cairo Street Cammeray. Our tenancy ended in January.

As you may or may not know we had a significant mould problem in the property leading to us not being able to sleep in or even use the main bedroom. We then had protracted and tense discussions and negotiations with the landlord regarding this problem with Caroline playing the negotiator and "middle man".

During the process of these negotiations Caroline was exceptionally professional in a not particularly pleasant environment. Caroline provided a balanced view and counsel and in the end helped resolve the situation relatively amicably. At no stage did Caroline make us feel as if our concerns were not serious and unfounded. In fact she provided a caring ear to my emotional and pregnant wife!

It is not often these days that you get exceptional service and help so I thought I should let you know that it was exactly those qualities that Caroline provided us while we were tenants of Cairo Street.

Happy Easter to everyone at Croll.

Regards,

David Butchart

To The Croll Team,

I would like to congratulate Croll for the changes it has made to
its advertising both in the Mosman Daily and on the web since
changing from First National and becoming independent.

Your advertisements with properties for sale/rent are much more
21st century, give a better perspective, are well written and on
the whole much more appealing.

I wish also to thank Caroline Carroll for her professionalism
when dealing with matters pertaining to the property my husband
and I own in Cremorne Point. Caroline is a very competent
real estate agent on whom we can depend.

Keep up the good work,

Kind regards,

Louise Mitchell, 20/140 Holt Avenue, Cremorne:

Dear Andrew

I am pleased I have received confirmation that settlement has gone through smoothly today.

I just wanted to thank you for making the sale happen so quickly. The whole process went very smoothly and you really have a fantastic team working for you.

Caroline has done a great job over the years of sourcing good tenants and managing the property and Robert and his team have made the accounting happen seamlessly with monthly statements and funds always being received on time. I was also very happy that Fran was appointed to manage the sale process as she knows the property well and I had all confidence that she would do, and did do, a terrific job.

Competent and talented teams are a reflection of good leadership, so congratulations.

It was a pleasure dealing with you and I would not hesitate to appoint your company again on any assets that I may purchase in the future.

Best Regards

Caroline has been the Property Manager for an investment property and during the six years i have found her to be very professional in her handling of the property matters.

Howard Doyle, 15/12 Landers Rd, Lane Cove:

Dear Caroline,
I wish to write a letter of thanks to Crolls for the outstanding assistance and professional support i have received form Caroline and Stuart regarding maintenance of my flat as a rental property and its recent marketing and sale.

Two and a half years ago, I asked Crolls to take over looking after my flat in Landers Rd, Lane Cove, and Caroline Immediately became involved. As a change from the previous real estate agent, suddenly i was receiving wonderful support and communication regarding management of the flat and other related issues. Also, I have heard from the tenants similar opinions - in other words the tenants were quite happy. Having happy tenants is symptomatic of successful and creditable property management.

All the time having been outside of Australia, I have depended on people like Caroline at Crolls to look after my primary asset. I have found them realiable, courteous, skilled and very professional in the way they have gone about this business. I wish to recommend them to anyone who needs similiar kinds of services in the future.

Yours Sincerely, Howard Doyle

Geoff McGirr MCG Enterprises Pty Ltd, 7/48 Ben Boyd Road, Neutral Bay:

Dear Sir/Madam, As an investor, I have been dealing in the property market for more years than I would like to admit. I write to compliment you on two people who I have dealt with in your office in Neutral Bay. I have been meaning to write for some time. Firstly in January 2007 and then in March of this year I requested your office to rent out a property of mine at 7/48 Ben Boyd Road. The first person was Caroline Carroll and the second Gary Bixley. I have found both to be most professional, courteous and efficient. I would like to point out that I have had many dealings with other agents on the lower North Shore. Two of these misplaced the keys to my properties to be leased, so it is a pleasure to find managers in the property rental department of this calibre. Would you please pass on to Caroline and In particular Gary my sincere thanks for getting the job done so effectively. I have because of these people recommended other property investors to your office. Yours faithfully Geoff McGirr MCG Enterprises Pty Ltd.

Mr David Day (SCECGS Redlands School), 272 Military Road, Cremorne:

Dear Andrew, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support of the Redlands Westpac Art Prize. This years show was an unprecedented success and we at Redlands are very appreciative of your sponsorship. During the three weeks of the show we had a record number of visitors, four paintings were sold and the Redlands collection has grown with two more extraordinary works by Rodney Pope and emerging artist Beth Norling. One of the most successful aspects of the exhibition this year has been the introduction of special events at the gallery to coincide with the show. Robert Hughes presented his new auto-biography and delighted the audience with his memoirs. An art speaker series followed with some of Sydneys most informed and erudite art specialists leading the programme. There was lunchtime concert series, which lent a charming element to the splendid environment of the gallery. Finally, visiting artist in residence, Anne Cape, took her audience on a journey of creativity detailing her process as she worked. These mornings were also attended by Redlands students who gained tremendous insight and enjoyment watching Anne produce a series of works. Once again thank you and I look forward to continuing our partnership in this exceptional exhibition of contemporary Australian Art next year. Yours sincerely, David Day Director of Development Redlands School.

I especially appreciated this, as my son Dean had a knee reconstruction and we went through a very difficult and trying time. I would with absolute pleasure recommend your agency to my colleagues, family and friends. I wish you and your family all the best. Please pass on my regards to the rest of your team. Kind Regards, Chad Ananijev.

Mrs Elizabeth Meers, 32 Holman Street, Curtin:

Hi Andrew, I would like to thank you for all your advice, patience and help with selling my unit 12/64 Gerard Street, Cremorne. As was obvious, the world of real estate, as far as selling a property, was a place unknown to me, and I greatly appreciate you making the procedure as painless as possible. I originally bought my unit through Croll Real Estate 20 years ago and when eventually renting it out, had always received excellent service from yourselves in relation to property management. Your advice regarding refurbishment of the property before putting it on the market, was invaluable, and your personal attention including all those phone calls keeping me updated were wonderful. I was very pleased and surprised that the property sold within 3 weeks of placing it on the market and considering the real estate climate at the time, was very happy with the end result. I would highly recommend Croll Real Estate to anyone for their real estate needs, but in particular I can’t express again how grateful I am to you for all your assistance. Kind Regards, Elizabeth Meers.

Hi Caroline,
I have to say i had lost all interest in dealing with agents. However, I have been very impressed with your prompt and friendly service - they hired the right person for a change!. Thanks for all your help - very much appreciated.

Carrie Glover, 2/19 Watson St, Neutral Bay:

Dear Gary,
I recently contacted Caroline Carroll with regard to a property that i own at 19 Watson Street, Neutral Bay.
To give you some background to the phone call, I manage my property myself and had put the rent up. Not having heard from my tenants by the givendate i assumed that they would be staying on, which is when i contacted 5 agents in the Neutral Bay area. As the property next door to mine is leased through McGrath i contacted them first. The property manager at McGrath and at several other agents were to say the least unprofessional, they sounded very young and inexperienced and did not inspire any confidence from me at all.

Out of those 5 agents, Caroline was the only one that promptly sent out the information that i required, she was also confident and professional in her manner and i immediately felt comfortable in engaging the services of Croll First National if i needed.

As it turned out my tenants are staying and I will continue to manage the property mayself, however I felt that should be aware of the excellent service that Caroline is providing. I have had several dealings with Real Estate Agents over the years and can honestly say that I've never been as impressed as this. I have several friends that own properties in the Neutral Bay and Mosman area and i have already passed on Caroline's details to them.
Thankyou and Kind Regards
Carrie Glover
