I have known Michael for several years. My partner previously bought a property from him, so when I decided to sell my house I had no hesitation in choosing Michael as my Agent.
I have always found Michael to be extremely well presented and polite. He is very experienced and knowledgeable and was realistic in relation to the expected sale price.
Michael is honest, genuine and hard working. He put a lot of time and effort into achieving a good result, personally walking around the area hand delivering flyers in letter boxes.
Michael kept me well informed throughout the whole process, regularly calling and meeting with me. He really provides a personal touch.
In summary I would highly recommend Michael to anyone looking for an ethical Real Estate Agent.

We recently engaged Mr.Michael Xanthoudakis to assist us in the sale of our Late Mothers Estate at Juliet Street, Marrickville – although it was an extremely emotional time for us after the passing of our Mother we found Michael to be empathetic with our emotions as it was listed after 44 years.
The advice and professionalism we received from Michael Xanthoudakis to listing her property and advice on auction details, was extremely professional and accurate with today’s market.
Her Property was SOLD and we received up to date information & feedback regarding Open House Inspections.
We would not hesitate in using Michael for our future projects or recommending Michael to our friends & family for any future investments.

We first met Daryl Brewer from Richardson & Wrench Newtown when he was the sales agent for the home we purchased in Newtown five years ago, and were thoroughly impressed by his professionalism, integrity and honesty. Recently, when the time came to sell that property, we had no hesitation appointing Daryl as our sales agent.
As we are based outside Australia, it was a rather daunting task to be selling a home from afar. Daryl made the process easy from start to finish. Because we were not there to take care of all the details that go into selling a property, he took all tasks on board himself – from organising repair work for the home to flower arranging on open house days – Daryl did it all!
We thoroughly appreciate his help during the sales process – which was, for us, as much an emotional sale as it was a financial transaction, which Daryl certainly appreciated. And although he managed our expectations, we ended up with a great sales result. We would have no hesitation recommending Daryl Brewer to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and professional sales agent.

I just wanted to formally thank you for all the time and effort you put into the sale of my investment property, the proof is in the final result which was way beyond my expectations and 10% higher than what we thought was the final offer. I really did appreciate the regular updates during the sale process on the number of people viewing, making enquiries/ offers (even the couple that fell through) it did make the whole process stress free. Exceptional service, thanks. I won't hesitate in recommending you (and R&W Newtown) to anyone whom maybe thinking of selling property.

I'm writing to thank you for all the advice and information you've given me over the years regarding my property, 18/ 40 Lennox St, Newtown. Your 'keep in touch' phone calls were always very much appreciated because they kept me up to date on property prices and what was happening re sales in my building.
Having made the decision to put my property on the market before the end of the year, I was very impressed by how quickly you were able to help me prepare my property for sale and organise the marketing campaign. I felt completely looked after and totally in touch with the progress of the sale. So, thank you for selling my property so promptly and professionally. It was very much appreciated.

I am writing to thank you for your assistance in selling my property in Shepherd Street, Marrickville. As a first time seller you explained the selling and auction process to me in detail, as well as making suggestions to improve my property for maximum profit. When I advised you I was not in a position to cover the cost to style the house, you provided me with the details of a company who was running a special for one month only. By providing me with these details I was able to afford to style the property which again assisted in me obtaining such a good sale price.
Your professionalism and extensive knowledge of real estate around Marrickville ensured the property was presented to the market in a manner that realised a great sale price at Auction. I was constantly kept up to date by you through telephone and email updates, so I was comfortable and always up to date with what was going on throughout the whole process.

I can’t thank you enough for acting for me in the sale of my property in Erskineville. Throughout the whole process you were thoroughly professional and helpful. I particularly appreciated the way you always kept me informed at each stage of the sales process. After each open house you gave me a comprehensive review of the parties who attended and the feedback they gave you. In the lead up to the auction you guided me through every step of the process and gave me sound advice about the reserve. On the day itself you calmed this very nervous vendor and assured me everything would be alright. You were correct and the price achieved was beyond my most ambitious expectations. It was a very satisfactory outcome and I am truly grateful for the part you played in the negotiations.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Richardson & Wrench to anyone who wishes to sell their property. The whole team is efficient and friendly. I was not living in Sydney at the time of the sale so could not attend to all those incidental matters that crop up in these circumstances. Your own attention to detail as impressive and you organised what needed to be done speedily and effectively. Once again Daryl thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my house sale such a positive experience – I appreciate everything you did to help it go smoothly.

It is with great pleasure that I can warmly thank your staff for their excellent service throughout the sale of my property at 1A Merchant St, Stanmore. As you will be aware it took great perseverance and skill to ensure the sale preceded and it was refreshing to discover that at no time did anyone falter. This has not been my experience with other real estate agents in the past.
I have recommended your service to many of friends and colleagues and will continue to do so in the future. In particular I would like to thank Barbara who always displayed a sense of humour, Daryl for his management abilities and Michael for efficiently letting both units.

We have been wanting to touch base to formally thank you very much for your dedication to the sale of our property. It has been our absolute pleasure to be your client and we were very happy with the result. We would happily recommend you to anyone who is looking for an experienced professional that has thorough knowledge of the Newtown area.

As settlement for the sale of my property draws nearer, I want to take this opportunity to thank you so very much for acting on my behalf. You have been extremely professional during this process, which no doubt, resulted in what I believe was an exceedingly good outcome. I particularly appreciate the calm and reassuring manner in which you dealt with any concerns I may have had along the way as well as the constant and timely feedback you offered. You not only kept me informed on the number of people attending the apartment but also your ‘feel’ for their level of interest and potential as purchasers. This really proved invaluable and gave me the confidence to make, what I consider to have been, the correct decisions along the way. I would certainly call upon you again for any property dealings in the future and would not hesitate in recommending you to others.

Michael has looked after me previously when I first bought an apartment in Alice St ten years ago - very professional, polite and genuinely shows an interest in your needs from a property, which is why I chose to go back to him to sell my unit recently, as I trust him to sell my property with the same level of care as when I first bought. Will certainly do business again with him when I come to buying another property.
I would highly recommend Michael to anyone looking for a property or selling as I have experienced.

This is a reference for Michael Xanthoudakis of Richardson & Wrench Newtown who has managed my apartment in Queen St, Newtown for over 20 years.
During this period I have never had a negative experience with a member of staff or a tenant and the property has always been leased.
Michael managed the sale of my apartment and as I live in Melbourne. I was concerned problems arise but this has not occurred due to Michael's attention to detail and regular communication. I have been called after each inspection and kept up to date on the progress, reaction and interest and on any information pertaining to this sale. Michael has also thoroughly explained all documentation concisely.
Furthermore, Michael took the time out to find me a suitable solicitor with whom I'm extremely impressed with. Michael phoned me immediately after my apartment was sold at auction to notify me of the sale which was well above reserve.
I cannot express my gratitude enough towards Michael for his service and devoted work.

I am writing to thank you for your great work in managing the auction campaign leading to our very successful sale last night. Naturally I am delighted with the result.
I have been very impressed with all the work you have done on our behalf, Barbara. Your advice prior to and throughout the campaign was excellent, and always realistic. The marketing material you prepared, and newspaper advertisements you placed were always first class, and everything seemed to happen on time, and to plan, to ensure maximum exposure for the property. I feel we had excellent value for the package we chose.
Above all, I wanted to thank you for al your efforts to communicate regularly with me and keep me in the picture. I really appreciated your regular calls and weekly updates. It allowed me to feel part of the whole process, in spite of the distance, and helped me to feel confident that we an in very good hands.
You, and Richardson & Wrench, have provided excellent service on our behalf in managing the rental of the property over the years, and its been great to have some continuity in bringing a long relationship to a close. The excellent sale price achieved last night was a bonus, and please convey my thanks to your auctioneer. He did an excellent job.
6A Hawken St, Newtown
A short note to express our appreciation for your efforts in securing our sale. We thank you for your efforts in acquiring an excellent price at auction. Your professional approach and communication has been of great assistance. You kept us fully informed and your advice was most valuable. It has seen the stress in selling what to us was an emotional time given our history and memories associated with the house over a long time. We have no hesitation in recommending to others who are contemplating selling properties through your agency , particularly yourself. It was a pleasure to have a genuine and upfront agent who was prepared to give an honest opinion.

Now that settlement is just around the corner I wanted to take the opportunity to convey our thanks to you for your excellent service. You have been absolutely one of the best real estate agents I have had the pleasure of dealing with. A few of the things that stood out to me: you were very upfront about expectations regarding pricing; you kept us updated regularly (& esp after each inspection); you were thorough in your work and helpful to my dad who had very limited English; and just generally very approachable and professional. I would not hesitate in recommending to other people we know (and have in fact told a lot of people about you already). Best wishes and we'll most likely see you again in the future.

I am writing to express my extreme gratitude for the support that I received at your office through Barbara Hunt. I have been looking to purchase a property in the Inner West, on and off, for the last three years. Never in that time have I received such consistent and professional support from an estate agent as provided by Barbara. She went to great lengths to find the right properties for me to inspect, which (as I am sure Barbara will attest to) was no easy feat for a very particular and hesitant buyer such as myself.
My only regret is that my eventual purchase was not through Barbara. It is my own fault that on at least two occasions I was not quick enough in taking Barbara's honest advice to purchase properties. I deeply regret not buying either property despite Barbara's concerned pleas that I needed to move more quickly. In sad retrospect, both would have been purchases.
The lesson I have learnt is that when I sell my house (or buy another), I will look to Barbara. I developed a very strong respect for her professionalism and honesty; respect that I have found difficult to grant in today's real estate market. In future I will not be hesitating to recommend them to Barbara Hunt as the right person to approach when looking to purchase a property.
Michael is a very honest and genuine person and is in real estate for the long haul. Therefore he builds and maintains long term relationships that extends beyond the sale. Highly experienced, he freely gives authentic and valuable advice and information.

I am writing to thank you for all your help and assistance in selling my home in Glebe last month. I am very happy with the result. From the time I met you, and asked you to list my home, you were very helpful, honest and always supportive of the way I wanted my home advertised and marketed - these being the very reasons I decided to give you my home to sell instead of my letting agent of several years. Most importantly I trusted your knowledge and integrity as both an agent and a person both of which were essential to me as I live interstate. I felt I could leave my home in your capable hands.
You gave 150% to the sale of my property and took a very personal interest in the result - well above and beyond what was expected and received by other agents. Always keeping me up to date with weekly, sometimes daily phone calls of all developments, including responses and feedback from the weekly open house viewings. Thank you so much for your extra service and commitment to achieve such an excellent result.

A huge thank you to Michael Xanthoudakis and the team at R&W Newtown for helping me through every step of securing my first property in Newtown! With more experience in the Sydney property market than most, Michael's investment advice is non-BS, genuine, and always on the money.
Thanks again mate,
