“I was extremely impressed by Zhenni’s professionalism and her proactive approach. She was able to secure the sale within one week from the start of our engagement.
Zhenni is well known in the Chinese developer community for delivering outstanding results and the recent sale of our property in Ashfield was no exception. Zhenni kept me well informed and was an absolute pleasure to work with. She demonstrated a strong understanding of the market, great connections with active buyers and ensured the right buyer was introduced and executed the sale.
I was thrilled with the result, which can be attributed to Zhenni’s professional work ethics throughout the process. Once again, I will highly recommend Zhenni to any other prospective clients or sales programme.”
Wei Wu | Owner of 378 Liverpool Road, Ashfield
“Zhenni and the team have great market knowledge, openly shares their advice about timing, price range and marketing arrangements, always keeps us updated with the sale of the property and gave me total confidence in their ability. In particular, Zhenni is excellent with her communication with regular updates and she followed up on each request as promised. As a result, we are happy with the outcome.
We are thrilled with the result and can’t thank the Colliers team enough. Any agent can sell in a strong market, but we would only trust Zhenni and her team to get the very best price. I would highly recommend the team to anyone looking for a trust advisor to sell their investment properties.”
