Sandip, buyer

Honest, informed, approachable I wanted to write and share how happy we were with the service we received after deciding to list our long-held family home for sale with Deb Newton from Castlehaven. Deb was the consummate professional from start to finish and when we required help or advice nothing was ever a problem or too much trouble. We found Deb to be honest, informed and approachable. We were very happy with the service she offered us during the sale of our property and would have no hesitation recommending her to others.

Excellent experience selling with Castlehaven We recently decided to sell our family home in Castle Hill, where we had lived for more than 30 years. These decisions are never easy but I’d like you to know we had an excellent experience selling our home through Castlehaven. The staff clearly had an amazing knowledge of the local area – finding a buyer from their database, negotiating for a price that suited us and closing the deal without any advertising or the hassle of open homes and people traipsing through at short notice. Exploring what the market had to offer us and then securing a very good price was, for us, a great success thanks to the expert sales management of Deb Newton. I was so impressed with Deb’s warm and honest approach and would not hesitate to recommend her to other locals looking to sell their home. I also really valued the way the Castlehaven agents worked as a team to get the best result for us. Deb worked with sales agent Dave Mills to find just the right buyer for our home. Dave was able to let people know our home was quietly on the market and actually introduced the eventual buyer to the property. The end result is a young couple able to start a life together in our old home and a fresh start for us in a smaller property that will be much easier to maintain. Thank you for providing such wonderful service to families looking to buy and sell in the Hills District

We sold our last home with Deb and knew exactly who to call when we decided to move I wanted to let you know how delighted we were following the sale of our home with Castlehaven. We sold our last home 13 years ago with your agent Deb Newton and when we decided to move from Castle Hill to a newer home in North Kellyville we knew exactly who to call. To put it simply; deciding to list with Deb again was a “no-brainer”.  In fact, the minute we decided to sell again we went straight to Deb because she had been absolutely fabulous in the past and in true Deb Newton style she has gone way above and beyond for us again. I’d also like you to know how skilful Deb is at handling delicate situations. I like to call it “politely honest”. We knew there were areas of our home that needed attention if we wanted to present well to buyers. Deb let us know exactly what we needed to do in a kind but clear way so we knew what changes to make but were never offended. It’s the little things like that which I have always really appreciated. It’s wonderful to see Deb has grown in her role at Castlehaven and is now General Manager – we dealt with a few of your other staff through the sale process and noted they were equally polite and enthusiastic in their dealings with us. It is great to see this standard applied across the organisation. Finally, I wanted to touch on your agency’s unique offering regarding sale of existing homes and purchase of new homes in the North Kellyville precinct. This was a defining difference for us from all other agencies as we were able to hold our wonderful new home for just $1000 while Castlehaven completed the sale of our existing property. This was a huge advantage and gave us peace of mind that we would not miss the new home of our dreams while our existing one finalised. It also avoided messy finance extensions with banks and other agencies. Glenn, this is an amazing offering that really makes a big difference to families looking to move into a new home. Thank you Castlehaven for making this whole process so easy.

Michael & Kym

We have always found Deb to work with integrity We were very happy with the service and help we received when selling our Kellyville home through Castlehaven.  We worked closely with Deb Newton who sold a home for us 16 years ago and we have always found her to be someone who works with integrity. Deb was professional and honest in the market appraisal of our home and we appreciated that she set realistic goals and valuations for us to work towards. As always, Deb also offered excellent customer service to us during the marketing of our home and it is wonderful to engage with an agent who is committed to achieving not just a sale but also a happy customer. We believe Deb worked very hard to support us through the sale of our home and negotiate the best price possible for us.

Thank you so so much !

Deb's warm & happy personality made selling a breeze Thank you so much Castlehaven for the amazing service you offer to people selling their homes in the Hills area. We recently sold our home in Kellyville through Deb Newton and her warm and happy personality made this very busy process a breeze. Working with Deb, I had every confidence that she had taken care of everything and we were delighted when the home sold within a week for a great price. Deb and the Castlehaven team made sure everyone who should know about our home did. In the first week, we had more than 20 people inspect the property and it was great to find a genuine buyer from among this group. I would certainly recommend Castlehaven to anyone because it is such a smooth and well managed process.

Joyce Giles

Trustworthy and well informed I was delighted with the way Deb Newton managed the sale of our Castle Hill home. I have known Deb for some time and found her market appraisals and general approach to her work to be both trustworthy and well informed. When it finally came to selling our home, Deb was the natural choice. She generated strong interest from genuine buyers with six people through on the first day. We sold for an exceptional price within 5 days of listing. Deb was attentive throughout the process and always returned calls promptly. I would happily recommend Deb to other Hills District home owners.

Kelvin Durham

A stress-free sale I wanted to thank Castlehaven and, in particular, Deb Newton for the expert way you handled the sale of our Kellyville Ridge home. The last time we sold a house was 17 years ago, so we really had no idea how it would all work because it was so very different back then. Deb was fantastic, she just made everything stress-free and put us at ease every time there was something we weren’t sure of. Castlehaven’s extensive database of clients really helped too. We had strong interest in the property from day one and it sold at the first open home so we couldn’t be happier.

Symone

Deb found several interested buyers I’ve had had a long relationship with Castlehaven as both a seller and purchaser of properties over the years and I have always been very happy with the service and professional standards they offer to clients, particularly when dealing with them as a seller. I have always found Castlehaven staff to be very friendly, professional and extremely fair in their fee structure for the sales they achieve. I recently sold a two bedroom apartment with their Sales Manager Deb Newton who I have known for many years. Deb continues to impress me with her no pressure sales technique in introducing prospective purchasers and in particular the professionalism she always demonstrates.   In a very difficult market, Deb managed to find several interested parties and we were very successful in the way we ultimately sold. I believe Deb’s no pressure manner contributed greatly to this success. As vendors, we valued the extra efforts made during the sales promotion period, which included newspaper, online and letterbox advertising. We feel this made a real difference in generating interest about the property we were trying to sell, with extremely positive results compared with others trying to sell in the same building. I would have no hesitation in recommending Deb Newton and Castlehaven to others looking to buy or sell a home in the Hills District. 

Laurie Doorey

Deb and Colin were a pleasure to work with Selling your home is a stressful and daunting task. Subsequently, it was a pleasure to have the support of Deb and Colin through the process. Their professionalism and expertise shone through every stage. They were sensitive to our wishes and we always felt we were in “good hands”. We would definitely recommend them to anyone who is about to sell their home.

Helen and Tom

Professional, friendly and ‘always on the ball’. From the time we approached Deb Newton she gave great advice on presenting our property for sale, as well as great contacts to help us achieve it. Deb kept us up to date on the advertising and sales process, and when we received offers she provided great support and advice. This friendly and professional service continued right through the ‘cooling off’ period to settlement day. Couldn’t be happier with the process, and the outcome. Highly recommend Deb at Castlehaven.

C Brook

Above all we appreciated Deb's honesty We met Deb Newton about 20 years ago and have just moved from Kellyville. We had a number of friends who had used Deb's services both to buy and sell properties so when it was time for us to sell it was an easy decision to list through Deb. We had a great experience. Deb helped us position the property, developed a sales strategy and we achieved an excellent outcome. We loved her regular communication and valued her in-depth knowledge of the market, and above all we appreciated Deb's honesty and how we really felt we were working with a professional.

R O'Brien

Honest and professional agent!  I was very impressed with the service I received while working to sell our home with Deb from Castlehaven. I first heard about Castlehaven through some promotional leaflets in our letterbox and I’m so glad to have found and worked with a local agent who is both honest and professional. Deb made regular visits to us to ensure we understood exactly what was happening and kept our personal needs in mind when negotiating with the purchasers to ensure the sale was the very best result for us.

Tony

Great agent Great agent …. would recommend them to all my friends.  Great job to Deb and the team!

Bev H

Very Experienced Agent Usually selling a house is a stressful experience but because of Deb's extensive experience in the real estate industry this was not the case. I found her to be friendly approachable and very helpful. She went above and beyond her normal duties to help me, and as a result I was able to get top dollar for my property. I would have no hesitations in referring Deb to any of my friends and family.

L McGuffie

Deb was always courteous and supportive I wanted to thank you for your professional service when we purchased a property recently through Castlehaven. Your agent Deb Newton was always courteous and responsive to any questions we had or help we may have needed. Deb was very supportive to us as we navigated building inspections and other matters of due diligence. It is a pleasure to work with a professional of this calibre.

Robert Hickson

We were very happy Friends of ours had sold their home with Deb Newton previously and were very happy with how everything went so, we’d made contact with Deb before we were even thinking of selling. When we did finally decide to go ahead with the sale of our home, we got in touch with Deb straight away. She saw us through the entire process and found genuine buyers who were interested in the careful renovations we’d done to our home. Nothing was too hard for Deb and she kept us informed of everything the whole way. It was great to have the house sold within three weeks and we were just very happy with the whole process.

D Rimmer

Deb really helped us understand each step of the sale process Selling our Baulkham Hills property through Castlehaven was very easy and stress free. A friend referred us to Deb Newton and they had been very happy with her, so that was a good enough recommendation for me. From the moment we met Deb she was really friendly, understood us and shared our philosophy around the sale of the home. Deb really helped us understand each step of the sale process and was a fantastic communicator – giving us reasons and information about why she was making particular decisions and recommendations. I also really like the Castlehaven philosophy of giving back to the community and appreciate that it is owned and run by Hills’ District real estate professionals. I wanted to thank you for this excellent real estate experience.

" I recommend Deb and the Castlehaven team "

I wanted to write and thank you for the very professional approach you took to the sale of my property in West Pennant Hills. I am living interstate and was delighted to find communication and the entire process was effortless and well-coordinated by your agent Deb Newton.  Deb had been recommended to me and I really must say, I met with her just once and everything else was done through regular and very pro-active phone and email contact from Deb.  It really felt like I was right there beside her and I cannot commend her approach highly enough.  I would not hesitate to recommend Deb and the Castlehaven Team to anyone looking to sell a home in the Hills' District.

What a professional. Deb's knowledge of the real estate market and Hills region was impressive. Even with her professional approach to sales I felt as though she was with us every step of the way.

" We bought a house with Deb and sold the same house with Deb 10 years later. "

I had the pleasure of meeting Deb in 2009 when I requested a viewing of a home she'd listed online only that afternoon. Deb wasted no time, and organised a viewing the same afternoon. We put in an offer and Deb liaised with both parties to agree on a price. Fast forward 10 years and we were thinking of selling. Having remained in contact over that time, Deb was able to offer some practical advice. There was timing to consider and repairs to be made to the house, and Deb took the time to understand the situation and took a proactive role in simplifying the process. Unlike other agents, who insisted we undertake repairs and wait until a better market time to sell by auction, Deb utilised her database to market our property discreetly to potential buyers who were interested in this very specific opportunity. As I'd come to expect of Deb, she sold our house quickly and without any complication. She worked seamlessly around our very limited available time and made the process of selling our home (which is said to be one of the most stressful times of ones life) simple, stress free, and fast. And saved us the the huge process and cost associated with presenting the home to suit an agent's preferred way of selling. To top it off, we sold for a price that met our expectations and the market. I would recommend Deb to anyone selling a property. Especially if you require flexibility and support from your agent.

Brooke

She ensured that all communication between the parties went smoothly and she made the whole process pain free. All in all, she contributed signicantly to the successful settlement of our new home.

Jing & Jia, buyer

" Ultimate professional "

Deb Newton is the ultimate professional. Deb has assisted my family several times since we moved to the Hills. Deb has a vast knowledge of the area and has always provided sound advice. I could not recommend her more highly.

" I can only say good things about Castlehaven & Deb in particular "

I wanted to write and thank you for your help selling our home. I can only say good things about your firm, and Deb in particular. Deb was always ready to answer my questions and was honest and genuine to deal with – I regard her in the highest esteem.

Christine

" Deb is a standout "

Deb was a standout & to our surprise the marketing costs were included. We sold our Castle Hill home within a fortnight, from the day it came on the market until we accepted the offer completely. I wanted to thank you for the service we received from the Castlehaven team during this time. Deb Newton was a stand out in terms of leading us through each step of the process. Deb was approachable, realistic and committed and she was always available with answers and advice.  To our surprise, the marketing costs were included free for us which was a welcome advantage. Through the entire process we just felt confident we were doing the right thing and the fact we achieved a sale before Christmas was great and a result of Deb’s hard work. I believe the Castlehaven agency is very much about building long term relationships with clients and if we ever had to sell again, we would certainly come back to your excellent team.

Mark & Olga

" I trusted Deb "

I felt confident to trust Deb with the sale of our family home I have known Deb Newton for more than 30 years and felt confident to trust her with the sale of our family home in Castle Hill’s Knightsbridge Estate. I have always found Deb to be honest, hardworking and competent and through this process she did not disappoint. Deb is a very trustworthy person and I’m thankful to have been able to work with her and your team at Castlehaven through this process.

Peter

" Expectations exceeded "

Deb's professionalism, great communication skills and empathy put me at complete ease with the sale of the home. Deb kept me informed of all enquiries and inspections. The home sale price exceeded expectations. I have no hesitation recommending Deb to sell your home.

Deb and the Castlehaven Crew are Excellent! From the first open home to the completion Deb has been brilliant in keeping us informed and guiding us through the entire process. The home required an experienced and professional agent which is why we picked Castlehaven and they smashed it out of the ballpark.

Michael

" Seamless - easy "

Having Deb sell our new build was an easy choice. Deb always follows through with quick responses to any questions raised. Deb has a great deal of knowledge of the area we were selling in. Easy choice using Deb and Castlehaven Realtors. Great result.

" Just awesome! "

Deb and the team at Castlehaven were fabulous. Without a second's hesitation I would use Deb & Castlehaven again. Nothing was too hard, fabulous connections to help me with the sale, great communication keeping me up to date as things happened from day to day. Highly recommended! Thanks Deb and Team!

Peter & Judy

" A humble realtor! "

It is a rarity to find an agent who is hungry to sell a property at an optimal price but is just as humble. Deb epitomises what a realtor should be. She is persistent but not pushy. She is realistic with a positive attitude. And she never gives up. When picking an agent, ask yourself – Can I trust giving this agent a key to my house? Would I want to have a coffee with them? Do I trust them with my biggest investment? The answer is YES, YES, and YES when it comes to Deb. She surpassed all our expectations and I would happily recommend her to family and friends. Deb made a stressful process, easy. She made us feel comfortable and guided us through a daunting time to sell and buy – COVID-19! When it comes to Deb, you don’t just get a realtor, you make a lifelong friend.

Prayna

" Thank you Deb "

It was a real pleasure dealing with you. You seriously enshrine the principle of integrity & truthfulness as you mentioned in your profile. I am grateful that you arranged private inspection, kept in touch & allowed a building inspection even before entering the cooling off period.
