Fayez Yammine's Testimonials

Hi Fayez and Steve,

Thank you to all the team at Devine Real Estate for the wonderful time and effort given to the successful marketing and sale of our property. The outcome was exceptional but above that was the confidence and professionalism displayed by yourself and Steve throughout the campaign. Best of all, Fayez we knew from the outset that your diligence was there, you were working hard for us as a vendor and hard for your company's reputation as premium real estate agents. The final result on the day well and truly reflected this and we do congratulate you and thank you most sincerely.

Everyone should have a DEVINE experience in their life!
- Denise Cole & Maureen Cameron


I recently put the family home on the market, which was a very emotional time. Along with speaking to a few agents I also went to many open houses and auctions to see agents in action. That's when I found Fayez Yammine, from Devine Real Estate Drummoyne, who impressed me from the very beginning with his professional approach.

Most of the other real estate's I spoke to were cheaper than Devine, however I felt most comfortable with Devine as they represented the best value for money.

I want to thank Fayez for his professionalism and compassion during the sale period of our family home. I really believe that it all came down to the good advice and hard work that you put in to make sure we chose the right amount of marketing and pulled in the right kind of interest to our property. You also went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable with the sales process by keeping us informed and updated.

We achieved an amazing price on the day of auction, almost a quarter of a million above where the market interest was indicating.
- Robyn Pride and Family


Fayez Yammine and Michael Murphy were both excellent communicators, always polite and considerate.

I could not fault their services. An excellent result for the sale.
- Margaret Jenkins


I was looking for an apartment for 9 months, therefore I was in communication with several agents in the Inner West. Fayez really stood out as he listened to what my needs and wants were for an apartment. I am very happy with my purchase.
What really stands out about Fayez is his follow-up and constant communication.
I highly recommend Fayez to everyone who is buying or selling.
- Lucia Cascone


It was a pleasure to deal with Fayez. He was concise in his advice regarding price pitch level and on market value. His marketing knowledge resulted in a very good sale.
On the basis of this sale I also had him market and sell another property and on both sales I have been extremely happy. He is a very competent agent.

Elaine Bowcher's Testimonials

Hi Elaine

Thanks once again for all your assistance with our home moving experience - both selling and buying!

We found the process of selling our unit such a stress free experience, thanks largely to the trust we had in your experience and judgement. We both appreciated your honesty and integrity, and your ability to identify the attributes of our property that would appeal most to a range of different buyers. Throughout the marketing period we valued your advice on how best to present our property to highlight its advantages, your full and frank reports on the feedback from buyers, and your candid assessments of buyers' interest. We know that it was your extensive experience, coupled with your sincere and pleasant demeanour, which ensured that our unit sold at a price well above our expectations.

However your support did not end when the hammer came down, but continued throughout our period of looking for a new home. Your advice and assistance, particularly with regard to a strategy for bidding at auction, were of immeasurable help - we couldn't have done it without you! We hope to enjoy living in our new home for many years to come, but should we decide to sell in the future we will be sure to enlist your services again. Thanks for everything!
- Nathan and Emma (and Reuben an


Hi Elaine,

I never had a chance to call you last week and thank you for everything you did to make the purchase of our apartment at Drummoyne Ave a success. And thank you for the little gift hamper! Very, very kind.

Well, Tim and I can finally draw breath and relax a little. We completed some minor renovations (paint and new carpet) before moving in a few days before our wedding. And the wedding was a success, albeit the quickest event of my life! I've attached a photo for you to take a look at.

Thanks again for everything and I'm sure we will bump into you around Drummoyne!
- Kerrie and Tim


Steven Devine's Testimonials

We had recently engaged Devine Real Estate as agents for a number of real estate transactions. I have been thoroughly impressed with the professionalism and exceptional service standards of this agency. Of special note, is their respect and care of the values and mission of the Church, and how this was imbedded into their conduct and course of action taken on our behalf. We dealt specifically with Steve Devine and Greg Emerton, and I especially appreciated their willingness to go the extra mile, providing service beyond the contract. The advice I received from them was invaluable and spoke to their knowledge and experience in all real estate matters in their respective markets. Without any hesitation, I would use them again.
- Eva Ing


Having to sell our mothers house was a very emotional decision to have had to arrive at however the support given to us from Steve Devine and the staff at Devine Real Estate has been nothing short of amazing. The whole process was conducted in a professional manner, we were always kept up to date with the progress of the scheduled open days and Steve's advice to begin the marketing of the home at the beginning of January proved to be the best strategy.

On the day of the auction we had 20 contracts out and were amazed at the number of people attending. Our sincere thanks to Peter our auctioneer, Steve, Greg and Jackie, for their hard work in obtaining a wonderful result, which was more than we were expecting. We would definitely recommend Devine Real Estate to any potential vendors and would happily provide a verbal reference.

Craig Stokes's Testimonials

My husband and I bought an apartment in Abbotsford from Craig Stokes in July 2013. We were so impressed with the way in which he conducted himself throughout the process, we decided to use him as the agent to sell our property in Five Dock in 2015.

Prior to selling our property, our daughter and son-in-law were in the market for a house in the Inner West and I attended countless open houses with them. I was in a position to speak to many real estate agents and as I wasn’t emotionally invested I could stand back and watch the way real estate agents went about the sale of these properties. This experience led us back to Craig as we were used to dealing with a person of integrity and were not about to settle for less.

Craig went over and above what was expected with the sale of our property. He was always at opens in time to make sure the property was displayed at its best. He kept us updated after every open house. He negotiated on Sunday nights if that was required. He always acted in the best interest of the vendor. There was never a time I could not make contact with him regarding the property.

I would not hesitate in recommending Craig Stokes to anyone preparing to sell their property. He will give 110% and make the difficult task of selling a property as close to being a pleasant experience as possible.
- Vera Crowhurst


We found Craig to be very professional in his approach throughout the negotiation of the purchase of our new home. Craig was always willing to answer our questions, providing responses to the information that we requested quickly, and was a great link between the buyer and the vendor. Craig's high level of customer service was excellent, he was very approachable and experienced throughout the entire process.
- Abby Gray


After searching for our ideal first home for over six months, from enquiring about buyers guides, making enquiries online, attending endless weekends of open houses (with two small children in tow) and even bidding at auction, we had met our fair share of real estate agents - most of whom lived up to the stereotype.
As a prospective buyer, you don't get to choose who you deal with when finding the right property, however Craig Stokes was one of the few real estate agents we've encountered that was honest and professional in his dealings, was knowledgeable about the area and the home in question and provided a fair appraisal of market value.
When we first saw our house, we weren't certain it was for us, however we kept coming back. It was a 'definite maybe' but possibly out of our reach. Craig was able to get to the heart of what we were seeking and thankfully followed up with us during the week leading up to auction. He gave us some hope, as we had just about decided to abandon house-hunting altogether for the time being. In doing this, we felt that he was able to strike a good balance between getting the best possible outcome for his clients whilst not creating an overly pushy sales environment for potential buyers.
Thankfully we successfully negotiated an outcome with Craig's assistance and we are now very happy in our new home. Craig's post-sale follow up was thorough and welcoming and he even facilitated the second hand sale of the dining table!
We would not hesitate to recommend Craig as an agent and will keep him in mind when the time comes to sell our home.
- Julia Collins and Sean Parker


Craig was always polite, contactable and ready to assist with any demands. He is very well versed in the industry of real estate and has a fantastic knowledge of the area he covers. Highly recommend the agency and particularly Craig Stokes.
- Anthony Pellegrino


We recently sold our apartment in Breakfast Point through Craig Stokes from Devine Real Estate and we wanted to write and tell you of our experience.
Not having English as our first language we needed an agent who understood our needs and who we could trust to guide us through the process. We found Craig to be very thorough in the selling process, keeping us informed of all the feedback from potential buyers, negotiating a price we were happy with and selling in the minimum of time. We would like to thank him for his hard work and for going above and beyond what was expected. Craig is very professional, honest and trustworthy and we felt very confident in his ability. He made the whole selling process particularly stress free. Also being a resident of Breakfast Point himself Craig's knowledge of the area was certainly an added attribute.
We would have no hesitation in highly recommending him to any potential sellers.
- Mr & Mrs Kim


It gives us great pleasure to fully recommend Craig to act for the sale of your property. From his first visit to our home we felt at ease with welcoming him in and entrusting him with the responsibility with managing our sale. We were most impressed with his pleasant nature and ability to communicate his ideas without being pushy or overconfident which we found a real turnoff in other agents.

Once engaged Craig was very thorough in his preparation, efficient with keeping us informed of where things were at, and respectful of our home and basically not just looking at us as another sale.

To our great delight Craig immediately managed to find interested parties once the house went on the market, culminating in a sale after 2 weeks at a price we were more than happy with.

Overall, we honestly believe that our experience of selling was made that much easier and profitable due to the work of Craig.

Michael Poynting's Testimonials

Dear Roger & Michael,

Please accept this as a note of huge thanks for the work you both did in selling my mother’s property.

From the first meeting, I liked your approach and felt that you were both sincere and understanding of the situation, so much so that I didn’t bother to interview any other agents. This may seem naive but I have bought and sold several properties in the past, dealt with many agents, and just knew that I would not find a better team. Furthermore, the concept of having 3 different Devine agencies looking after the sale, covering a large part of the Inner West area, was very appealing.

I also wanted to pay a complement to Steven Devine for the way in which he runs his company. He obviously has developed a work ethic within his team which encourages a very genuine, sincere approach all the while executing in a very professional business-like manner. This is not just my experience. Several friends and a family member have also dealt with Devine and without exception, only have good things to say.

Thanks again for everything you did, including the little personal touches along the way. It was very much appreciated. You took a lot of stress away in coping with what is often referred to as one of the most difficult things people do in life.

I will not hesitate in giving you a call when I look at selling my own property in the future. This is probably the highest recommendation someone can give – choosing to do business with you again.

Many Thanks.

- Daila Jansons


Gaylia and I could not have been more satisfied in the way we were treated, with respect, with understanding and nothing was too much trouble. We had the added complexity of living in the country, although communication was always prompt and excellent, including many phone calls where time was effectively given to respond to our questions and queries. Michael was first class in everything - appearance, manner, conversation and follow up. He is a trust asset to Devine.
- Clive Logan


My experience with Michael with the selling of my property has been very positive. He was professional and very easy to communicate with. He was understanding of my communication needs and was patient and understanding. Michael was very personable and informative of the process of selling a home and was not 'pushy' and advised using his professional judgement and knowledge. I would highly recommend Michael to all.
- Rebecca McLachlan


I believe that Michael & Roger did everything possible to achieve the best possible outcome for the sale of my mother’s property at Canada Bay. They guided us in confirming what was necessary to provide a great presentation of the property. This recommendation optimized the sale value as well as the probability of a sale. We had a very tight pre-Xmas time line to work within and I could not be happier with the effort and follow up from Michael and The Devine Team.
- John Holt


The team at Devine gave excellent service. I was comfortable with the advice given at all times. I was happy to accept the advice as I believed that Roger & Michael were professionals who knew the market & industry far more than myself. The outcome was excellent & the support given at the time of auction was to both myself as vendor & to prospective buyers.

Joe Campisi's Testimonials

Joe is a fantastic agent to deal with for real estate. Having dealt with many different agents over a year long period, Joe was the most communicative and genuine to do business with. During inspections, he conveys accurate information about vendor and market expectations in a friendly and professional manner to ensure potential buyers are comfortable in their purchase. This was combined with a good understanding of the property and surrounding market. Negotiation between the vendor and the buyer was fair and well handled and made this whole transaction a pleasure. Would recommend!
- Andrew Parker


Jalini and I want to thank you for your professionalism right from the start to the end. Your calm approach and clear communication are commendable. It has been a pleasant experience dealing with you where selling a property can be stressful. We wish you all the best.
- Rajan and Jalini


Joe was helpful. He was so nice and sent us a present after auction. Thank you.
- Mrs Catherine Han


Great service from a very committed, honest and reliable agent who was persistent and professional throughout the entire sales period. Joe sold our home, securing a price above reserve. We strongly recommend Joe to any prospective vendor or interested buyer in the real estate market.
- Alan & Annette Legge


Joe was helpful. He was so nice and sent us a present after auction. Thanks Catherine.
- Catherine Han


Joe knew how to work the market, he had solid marketing procedures that worked well. He never over exaggerated his ability nor the sale price but the proof of his efforts showed on the day. I got well above my asking price and even better than standard market price. I have dealt with Devine before and do believe that there is no one better in the area they service.
- David Feghali


We were consistently informed of the interest in our property, and how the property was tracking with potential buyers.
- Denis Bradley


Jeannette Nguyen's Testimonials

As a landlord we have nothing but the highest praise for Devine. With Jeannette & Vanessa nothing has ever been a problem, so much so that they are under instruction that if our tenants report any issues then "Get it fixed now"....and they have never let us down. Perhaps that's why in the 13 years we have been dealing with them we have only had 4 tenants in the property. And that's why we are staying with them & adding more to their management portfolio.
- Mark Flanagan


I am very pleased with the helps agent Jeannette Nguyen at Devine Real Estate has given me in the last month or so, since we signed them up to lease our premium property in Strathfield. She is very professional, energetic, and she has delivered more than what she promised! Having dealt with many agents over the years, Jeannette seems to stand out not just as a professional agent, but as a person who cares, who quickly understood what we needed when we needed it, and who delivered what we wanted. Fantastic job, well done, and keep up the good work!
- Loc Cung


We just leased out our property with Devine and they took all the hassle out it. I was really impressed at their professionalism. They went above and beyond to get our placed leased and I am looking forward to have them manage our property going forward.
- Kamal Sarma


Sammy Haddad's Testimonials

To Whom it May Concern,

We selected Sammy Haddad as he came highly recommended for his professional approach (people we spoke to indicated that Sammy was the only real choice).

We would like to formally thank Sammy for the professional way in which he undertook everything and in particular we would like to express our thanks for his supportive approach. He was always available to us and would take out time to discuss our concerns and worries. After every inspection and open home he called with an update and then continued to provide feedback from all the prospective buyers.

Sammy has an honest and open approach which we found very refreshing ... he tells it as it is! From the start he provided us with his views on what we could potentially hope to achieve and as a testament to his knowledge and expertise in the area; our home sold for a price within the original estimate that he gave us.

The Devine team worked extremely well together at our auction which ensured that the best possible price was extracted from the buyers. We were very impressed by the way the Devine Team managed the auction process.

Overall what impressed us the most was that we were always sure that Sammy was on our side and he fought very hard to get the best price for our property. We can't recommend Sammy enough - if you're with Sammy Haddad you can be sure you're in safe hands!
- Dimitrios & Artemis Tzakos


Curtis Christofi's Testimonials

I have dealt with Devine for many years & always found them to be an agent that goes beyond for their customers. Recently I gave them an investment property that Curtis had someone in within two weeks of me signing their documents. They are an agent that I recommend my friends to use.
- Greg Denning


Devine have managed our rental properties for a number of years. We have found them to be very professional, attentive and quick to respond to any issues that arise. In particular Curtis Christofi. We have a unique property that required a very specific tenant. Curtis understood this and he and his team managed to secure a valued, high quality tenant within one week. Curtis' professionalism and discretion is balanced perfectly by the friendly, approachable demeanour of the property manager Vanessa Djuricic, who has an excellent rapport with the tenants and an efficient manner. We are very pleased with the service we have received from Curtis, Vanessa and the Devine team.
- Cathy Alam


We purchased our house through Devine 15 years ago and have had a long running relationship with the agency ever since - they now manage the property for us. Excellent service from Curtis, Helen and the property management team - nothing is ever too much trouble and they always communicate quickly and efficiently when necessary. Whether buying/selling or renting it's lovely to deal with a specialist local agency who are really committed to great service. Keep up the great work guys!
- Liza Sandanam


Vanessa Djuricic's Testimonials

Vanessa has showcased exemplary service and has been so kind and helpful throughout the entire process. It was my first rental experience and she made it a breeze. 10/10.

Can I compliment you on your amazing service??? Don't get me wrong, everyone we've dealt with at Devine have been great, so I'm not complaining.
