Vendor - Bayview Penthouse, Ramsgate Beach
I have now had a 5.5 year association with Suzanne Hibberd, having purchased a penthouse apartment and one bedroom apartment through her in 2013.
As I found Suzanne to be most efficient in relation to all details of those purchases at that time, and coupled with her honesty, I had no hesitation in appointing her as my selling agent for the recent sale of my penthouse.
Again, I was most appreciative of her professionalism, honesty and negotiating skills in handling this sale for me in what proved to be a quite difficult market. Suzanne achieves successful results for her clients and keeps you well informed throughout the selling process.
I therefore have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Suzanne Hibberd and Abode Property to anyone seeking a top tier and reliable real estate agent, and find it quite refreshing to know a real estate agent I am happy to recommend so highly.

Purchaser - SOUTH COVE Cronulla
Recently, my wife and I successfully negotiated the purchase of a property at South Cronulla through Abode Real Estate at Port Hacking Road, Caringbah.
The Estate Agent at Abode with whom we had the pleasure of making our enquiries and negotiating our dealings, was Ingrid Rogers.
We would say unequivocally, that all of our dealings were conducted in a most satisfactory manner and that it was at all times an absolute pleasure working with the committed assistance of Ingrid. We were able to organise several inspections of the property in a very convenient and thorough way, and Ingrid was always on hand to answer all of our many questions. When she needed to obtain clarification of any issue, she happily made relevant enquiries and referred back to us promptly with full and comprehensive information.
We were not rushed or pressured in any way.
When the time came for negotiations in relation to a purchase, Ingrid always kept us fully informed and always responded promptly. Further, she was not at any time concerned about the time of day or day of the week and continued to remain in contact well after normal business hours.
We can honestly say that this was the smoothest property transaction we have ever been involved in, and we owe a great deal of this to Ingrid's commitment and obvious passion and love for the work that she does. She was always very straight forward and clear with us and demonstrated a top level of complete honesty.
We would strongly recommend Ingrid and the firm with whom she is associated to any prospective real estate purchaser or Vendor and would make her our first choice of agent to work for us in the event that we engage in any future real estate dealings.

We engaged Suzanne Hibberd of Abode Property Agents to not only market our apartment development "Zinc" in Cronulla, but also to assist us with the interior design of the apartments.
Suzanne’s knowledge of the Cronulla market was first rate. Equally importantly, Suzanne’s knowledge of our target market was second to none.
Suzanne’s price guidance was spot on and unlike a number of other agent’s we have dealt with, she did not have to manage our price expectations after being appointed.
Suzanne guided us through the marketing process with integrity and honesty. We could not recommend Suzanne any higher.

Vendor - Woolooware Road, Burraneer
We recently purchased a new property and sold our current home with the assistance of Suzanne Hibberd of Abode Property Agents. We would like to extend our thanks to Suzanne for all the help and assistance she provided to us during the whole process. We found Suzanne to be extremely professional
and helpful. She constantly kept us informed and was more than generous with her time. To that end, a buyer was found within ten days of listing and we were more than pleased with the price she obtained on our behalf, which was extremely close to her initial quoted appraisal. We have no hesitation in recommending Suzanne for any real estate needs.

Vendor - Oleander Parade, Caringbah South
I cannot thank you enough for the excellent job you did in selling the newly constructed dwellings in South Caringbah. Your attention to detail is second to none and the involvement you and your staff are willing to undertake is wonderful. Your personal reviewing of plans prior to marketing, to ensure that the product meets market demands, is what takes any doubt out of the buyers minds. I thank you for assisting potential buyers in the selling of their homes, regardless of whether or not you were making the sale of their home yourself or not, advising them of the best agents in their area. The marketing material that you suggested was exactly what was necessary to draw in potential buyers without spending money unnecessarily.
Vendor – Jellicoe Street, Caringbah South
We recently engaged Suzanne to sell our home in Caringbah. Our situation was slightly unusual, with my husband away for the majority of the sales campaign. While always a total professional, I found Suzanne’s approach very personally supportive during one of life’s more stressful events! She was highly organised and professional. After each open home Suzanne took the time to talk with me about prospective buyers and she always responded promptly to emails. I really appreciated that we were kept well advised throughout the process. We achieved a great sale price and we are happy that our home will be enjoyed by another family. Overall, Suzanne demonstrated her knowledge of the market and real estate experience throughout the sales process. Our experience was totally positive and I whole heartedly recommend Suzanne and Abode Property Agents to any prospective client.

Vendor - Warburton St, Gymea
We would like to say a big thank you to Suzanne and the rest of the team at Abode for selling our property so quickly and for a fantastic sale price! Everything was so easy, professional and went so smoothly.
I was so impressed and grateful to Ingrid and especially Suzanne for their personalised customer service. They both gave me a lot of their time helping me and giving me advice on selling and buying. I didn't have much knowledge on this and I felt very supported through the whole process. Thank you again!

As interstate vendors, our experience with Suzanne Hibberd and her team at Abode Property was extremely refreshing. From the organisation of property stylists and furniture hire, through to precise target pricing that was ultimately achieved, her delivery was seamless.
We would highly recommend her office on the basis of no-nonsense service and a commitment to results.

Her vast experience and list of contacts led to a quick sale for us at an excellent price. We can't thank her enough for making the whole process so stress free.
Mr and Mrs Moncrieff-Hill
Vendor - Woolooware Rd, Woolooware
Suzanne and her team at Abode Property did an outstanding job with the recent sale of our property, and were professional and competent in every way. We chose Suzanne because of her warmth, integrity and strong communication skills, which we believe were the key strengths in helping us to achieve the best result possible for the sale of our property. We would have no doubts in recommending Suzanne and the Abode team and would use them again in the future.
Will and Zosia Ericksson
Vendor - Gerrale St Cronulla
Suzanne came to our attention following huge wraps from two previous vendors we know.
Her honest no nonsense approach is refreshing, and her work ethic to achieve great results is outstanding.
Throughout the sales process Suzanne kept us fully informed as to the level of interest from prospective purchasers allowing us to make informed decisions.
If your property is your most valued investment then I have no hesitation in recommending Suzanne as the individual you can rely on to achieve great results.
Mr & Mrs Chalmers
Purchaser - Hume Rd Cronulla
Thank you so much for managing the purchase of our new home. Your practical, honest approach to buying and selling was very refreshing after dealing with various agencies during our long search. You demonstrated a thorough knowledge of your market and your ability to match the possibilities of a property to meet our needs, led directly to our purchase. You earned our trust at the outset and gave us invaluable assistance even before we viewed properties represented by Abode !
One of your strengths is certainly follow through. You smoothed out big and small issues up to and past, settlement while being up-beat, energetic and lots of fun to deal with.
We have already recommended Abode to our friends.
With our thanks.

Purchaser - Bayview Rd Burraneer
We first met Suzanne Hibberd at an Open Inspection for a property we were interested in viewing. We found her to be very informative and helpful in every way. Weeks later Suzanne called us with a new property listing to show us, a beautiful home which we ended up buying through Abode Real Estate.
We liked Suzanne's style of selling. She went 'the extra mile' pointing out to us every aspect and feature of the home in a very professional way. Her years of experience and knowledge of Real Estate showed through. She has a unique way of selling, very professional and honourable in all she does.
Weeks later we appointed Suzanne to sell our family home as well. We felt that we could trust her in every way. Suzanne has a bright happy personality and we would definitely sell with her and the Abode team again.

Thanks to you, Suzanne and Peter for your help and professionalism. Will miss the repartee. Mike and I are very happy with the hard work you put into the recent sale of our property.
We had regular feed back and excellent rapport and would highly recommend you and the Abode agency team. We were impressed with the personal and straight forward approach that resulted in a quick sale of our home.

Vendor - Ischia Street South Cronulla
As we were retired and had been in our previous two level home for approx 18 years we knew it was time to downsize. We approached Suzanne Hibberd who was selling the Sanctum Apartments being built by CABE just after construction commenced.
We had never bought off the plan before but after meeting with Suzanne we felt confident we were making the right choice in Sanctum. Suzanne was very knowledgeable in answering questions in relation to the apartment plans and finishes and obtained prompt answers to any technical questions after discussions with the developer/builder.
Suzanne understood that this was a big decision for us and never did we feel pushed or rushed in making a decision. After committing to the purchase prior to selling our own home we then entrusted Suzanne with our sale. This transaction was also handled professionally and discreetly and an orchestrated timely result ensured we were able to move from our home to our lovely new apartment.
We have no hesitation in recommending Suzanne to anyone selling their property. We have had the opportunity to discuss Suzanne with some other Sanctum purchasers who all agree that Suzanne was instrumental in them being able to decide to commit to buying their apartment. Her knowledge, friendliness, integrity and thoroughness is a tremendous asset so much so that we have recently also recommended Suzanne to sell our daughter's property in Lilli Pilli which once again yielded a fantastic result.

Thanks for your help in an efficient sale of my property. I would thoroughly recommend you to my friends if any of them should choose to sell their home in the Sutherland Shire.
Vendor - Hyndman Avenue Woolooware
When we were ready to sell our home the most important decision we made was which agent to use.
After serious consideration we made the decision to put our trust in Ingrid Rogers of Abode Property Agents. We had purchased the original property from Ingrid, however, had not worked with her as a seller.
From the beginning of our campaign until the successful sale we felt we were in a partnership. Ingrid gave us guidance and advice without being 'pushy' and kept us updated at all times. We were comfortable that the focus was about us and selling our home and not about increasing the agency's profile.
Selling your home can be an extremely stressful experience, however we didn't find it that way at all. Ingrid was calm, focused and confident in her approach at all times.
We would recommend Ingrid Rogers and Abode Property Agents without any hesitation.
Rhonda and Terry Culnane
Vendor - Port Hacking Road, Lilli Pilli
Sole Agent acting on our behalf in the sale of 606B Port Hacking Road, Lilli Pilli
This is just to thank you sincerely for the time, patience and concerted effort you put into finding the right buyer for the above property. Not only the right buyer, but also the price that was acceptable to us.
We are very aware of the problems this particular property presented for you from the onset. Firstly you had to handle an overzealous tenant, who did not wish to leave the property, and hence made your task as difficult as possible for the couple of months he was living there. The number of inspections that this tenant tried his best to spoil for you did not deter you in any way. The professional way you went about continuing to handle this tenant, at the same time as getting as many interested clients through the door as possible, is a credit to you.
The negatives of this property were firstly, there was only one bathroom, yet it was a 3 bedroom villa with double garage and good sized living areas, and secondly not a lot of storage room in these bedrooms. You conscientiously explained to interested clients a way of adding an ensuite if that was their only concern, and you constantly suggested extra ways of gaining more storage.
I believe you showed over 70 lots of clients though in the months you had the property listed, you continually updated the internet site, advertised in the Domain when you felt it was advantageous, and at all times kept us up to date with feedback on the various inspections. At no time did you try to encourage us to drop the price down to anything below what we considered our lowest aim, and eventually you were successful.
We originally chose you to sell our property because you had successfully sold the home of my mother, as well as selling a brand new unit, off the floorplan, to my parents, last year. They were more than happy to recommend you, and we also will be recommending you to anyone we know with a property to sell.
Again, many thanks.

Testimonial from PKF Chartered Accountants & Business Advisers
I have had the pleasure of knowing and utilising the professional real estate services of Suzanne Hibberd for some time now.
Suzanne has assisted in properties I have personally been involved with in Lilli Pilli achieving outstanding success in a very tough market at the time.
On the business side I was the Receiver/Manager for some difficult commercial/residential properties at Waterloo. These properties went to Auction under another agent and did not attract a bid. Within a few months Suzanne and her team had sold them all.
I also asked Suzanne to assist in helping to sell a property at Laughtondale (Wisemans Ferry), and again her professionalism shone through by sourcing a local conjunction agent and achieving a sale above valuation.
Suzanne is also invaluable when looking to buy, and is pro-active in this regard - even if a property is listed with another agent.
Suzanne is well regarded by her peers in the real estate industry.
A feature of the success of Suzanne Hibbard is the support she has from her team. Their local knowledge and efforts outside the area are appreciated.
I have no hesitation in recommending Suzanne Hibberd and Abode Property Agents and look forward to working with her in the future.

After 25 years in the property industry, it has been a highlight to work with Suzanne Hibberd of Abode Property Agents. Suzanne has an innate ability to listen to the needs of her Clients and match their requirements with the right home.
Suzannes honesty, hard work, integrity, intelligence and thorough understanding of the Cronulla market, coupled with her genuine enthusiasm, made her the ideal choice to sell the projects I was responsible for.
I recommend Suzanne to any prospective client who values the principles of professionalism, honesty, integrity and diligence in achieving excellent sales results.

I am writing to thank you for the very professional way in which you approached the sale of my property at Miranda.
The manner in which you provided expert advice at anytime, and the way you kept me informed on a day to day basic was fantastic.
Given the slowing market conditions at the time of the sale you showed the skills of a true professional at her best.
I would not hesitate to recommend your services or company for any property related transaction.
I hope this year is a successful one and that you have a stress free time.
Vendor - Bunarba Road, Gymea Bay
Just want to express Collen and my thanks for your great service before, during and after the sale of our house.
In the process of discussing the sale of our property, which had peculiarities which don't suit the majority of buyers, we found your advice professional and informed compared to other Estate Agents we talked to.
We found you to be an excellent judge of the market and helped us position and negotiate our property to achieve a good outcome.
We would, and have, happily recommend your services to friends and colleagues.
