We would highly recommend Danny Whalen to anyone wishing to buy or sell real estate. I randomly choose Century 21 Foreshore 2 Farms to sell our family residentail property and we're so glad to have done so. Danny scored a high ranking in all areas, market knowledge, communication, credibility and negotiation, all which he excelled at. Danny has gone well above his duties to help us through the sale process, made trickier by our family living 100 of kilometres away and Danny's communication skills made all the difference in keeping us up to date and informed. Praise must also be given to his team with special thanks to Lynn.Dear Lynn,
I just want to thank both your property management team and sales team for your outstanding service in both departments.
Caitlin in your property management area, has been so efficient and helpful, addressing all aspects of my property, and her approach has been understanding and courteous at all times. She is highly recommended.
Mark, in the sales team, has also been helpful and efficient.
Being in real estate myself, your team approach is refreshing and as company, I certainly recommend you to any future clients. I would welcome a call from any potential clients.
Thank you again for your service.

Dear Lynn, Danny and Mark
Testimonial regarding your property management and transactional services.
Firstly thank you to Lynn and team for looking after my house. Promptness of monthly reporting, accuracy of statements and of the underlying administrative work is outstanding. The team has sourced and looked after excellent tenants, making sure there is a balance between tenant comfort and maintenance cost. No job or request has ever been too big and having lived remotely from my property it has been great having a team ‘on my side’ and being able to rely on the accuracy of their descriptions of work needed and to rely on the quality and promptness of the subcontractors. Add to this the quality and continuity of the staff in the team and you will see why we have been so happy with the service.
Kind Regards,
Jacinta Ray

Thank you to Danny for his good advice and especially to Mark on the sales side who helped us sell a unique property at a price point well above median. Through a combination of patience and planning and executing according to the plan we ended up with a good result. We were never harassed to reduce price and all prospective buyers were properly vetted and we had no time wasters to deal with as a result. To ready the property for sale we had a few important jobs that needed doing and Mark’s good judgement, sound advice and follow up ensured we got there is a reasonable time frame.
Truly a great experience, thank you.
Best Regards
Mark.


"Danny was fantastic! He was very kind, supportive, caring and understanding with regards to the situation I was in which necessitated the sale of my unit in Elizabeth Street, Sawtell. He negotiated patiently and persistently with the clients and myself. Danny had an exceptional knowledge of the comparable properties and their values and was able to provide me with the encouragement to persist, and subsequently obtain, a very satisfactory price for my property. He phoned me regularly with updates of inspections, offers and client validity. Thank you Danny for making the process as painless as possible. You are a true professional!" - Kathy Reeves

For, Danny Whalen - Licencee In Charge

When selling the family home, Danny Whalen at Century 21 in Sawtell was chosen as the agent. This decision was based on a very thorough discussion with Danny about the local property market and his success rate in terms of recent sales in the local area in which we were selling. Danny’s knowledge of the local market, the proposed marketing strategy and his passion and enthusiasm for a much loved and well cared for 1950’s weatherboard home made him the obvious choice. Danny was open to my thoughts and ideas and we adopted a partnership and consultative approach in selling the house. My questions were always answered, and Danny always kept me informed of progress. The house sold very quickly due to a solid strategy and a passionate agent.

“Recently we sold a property in Boambee East employing Danny Whalan and the Team at Century 21 Sawtell as our agent. We were pleased to find their service courteous and professional during the entire period, from the initial phone call to settlement. We had previously listed our property with another agent but during the six month contract we were unable to find a buyer. After transferring the Property Management contract to Century 21 we decided to place the property on the market once again. We only gave Century 21 a 3 month window to sell the property and we were most pleased to receive an acceptable offer on the property within that period. We believe it was their large client base and knowledge of the Sawtell area that facilitated a quick sale. We would recommend them to anyone selling property in the area. We would also strongly recommend Lynn and the Property Management Team for the quality of service they deliver.”

Thank you again. We are so glad we moved our asset under your agency. What we found we really did, however, was move our lives into your care! And that has been gold.
Kurt S


thank you for your efforts in making this happen, particularly in managing the Purchaser during this time. We very much appreciate. Also many thanks to you and Lynn in managing the rental of the property over the last few years; from our perspective it has been pretty much hassle free. We look forward to financial close in early February. In the meantime we wish you, Lynn and your family a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2014.
Kind regards
Nigel & Lynda Johnson


I and my family would like to thank Danny for selling our family home.
Wow, Danny managed every aspect of the sale. His professionalism was exceptional, he provided great realistic advice, listened to our requests and importantly he kept us informed every step of the way. He even jumped in and helped with some removals on the day of the settlement.
Best of all he got a great result, and in a much shorter sale time than expected.
I would highly recommend Danny.

Great news. I would like to thank you for your perseverence and dedication in a tough market. It was your persistence and commitment and professional work ethic alone that resulted in this sale. Thank you Danny. Thank you Danny.

Thank you so much for your prompt response.
I have to say that the professionalism you and Danny have displayed to date, goes a long way in my recommendation of your Agency.
Again, thank you

Hi Danny,

Sadly 8 years of engagement with your business has come to an end. Over that period you and the team have managed the property through both good times and bad. But during that period you achieved an almost continuous occupancy. Three tenants in 8 years with a 2 week gap at the start. That stability speaks volumes of how you have managed the property.
Then you and the team excelled pre-Christmas to get the house sold. In an uncertain market, your advice was underpinned by integrity and it worked a treat in ensuring the right sales strategy was identified and then executed to a successful conclusion. A first class result from a bloke who is top shelf.

This real estate agency is hard working and honest. They get the job done. I recommend them.

After owning my unit in Driftwood Court for 28 years I made the decision to sell due to the distance the unit was from Adelaide. During that 28 years I had your company as my managing agent for the past 20 years. During that time SRE ( with several owners) always met my expectations and handled my property in a very professional manner. Naturally when I recently decided to sell the property I contacted Danny and after a short discussion we decided upon a price and my expectations regarding the sale of the property. Danny impressed with his down to earth approach, his uncluttered costing’s and expectations re saleability.
All of my expectations were achieved and I would thoroughly recommend the company for both property management and as a selling agent.
Thank You.
Regards
