What our customers say

We recently sold our property through Ryan from LJ Hooker Mona Vale. The selling process went extremely well with Ryan and his team who kept an open, honest, regular and efficient communication throughout. Our family had the pleasure of finding a real estate agent like Ryan who could deliver on promise and in a timely manner.

Lynn Chang, Church Point

Our family can’t thank Ryan enough for he and his team’s amazing work selling our house to a family who’ll love making it a beautiful home. His professionalism was outstanding and his passion contagious. At the typical hard points in the process (selling is never easy!) Ryan took the burden off our shoulders and worked through every challenge smoothly and positively. Ryan is highly relational (this was not just business as usual for him) and it was a pleasure having him join our street farewell.

Lisa Huck, Bayview

I have previously dealt with Ryan on a previous property I have purchased a few years ago and knew his expertise and knowledge of the Bayview area. Local buyer knowledge and his negotiating skills, I think was key in Ryan securing a sale for us. It has always been a pleasure dealing with him, Brigitte and the office and won't hesitate in referring and using him again on our next property transaction.

Wally Bubalo, Bayview

Ryan Petrie sold our home in a tough market. He was ready to listen to our particular needs and marketed the property before a planned renovation and marketing campaign to get a feel for the market. Ryan targeted buyers who had registered their interest specifically in houses on acreage with similar features to ours. Without advertising the property, he found a buyer at a price we were very happy to accept after only three weeks. My wife Wendy and I are extremely happy with the service Ryan provided. We highly recommend him to anyone considering the sale of their property.

Brett & Wendy Read, Bayview

Ryan has managed to sell our property in about three weeks which is relatively short time in the current market. Ryan's negotiating skills are impressive which resulted in a price we are very happy with. We have dealt with a number of agents in the past with varying degrees of satisfaction. This was not the case with Ryan. Very professional in all aspects. Sincerely recommended.

Ivan & Kerry-Anne Orth, Bayview

I'm very happy to provide a review for Ryan, and his team. I found Ryan to be absolutely professional in every way during the sales process for my house. His local market knowledge, attention to detail, and communication skills are oustanding. He takes time and trouble, puts in the extra effort, and walks the extra mile. He is creative, focused, and organised - and, he has terrific sales skills, too. I'd also like to make special mention re his broader team. His wife & business partner, Brigitte, is also a consummate professional. The organisation and follow-through on all matters, such as Administration, Marketing & Advertising was second to none. Very high quality - and, again, great attention to detail. Definitely one of the very best in the field, imo.

Chris Aston James, Bayview

My husband and I engaged Ryan Petrie for the sale of our home in Mona Vale. From our first meeting we felt completely at ease with his strategies, marketing campaign advice and suggestions. Ryan was extremely helpful with market knowledge and made what can be a stressful and emotional time easier for us both. The sales campaign went exactly as Ryan indicated and we achieved a wonderful sale. Ryan kept communication open and honest and after the sale his office and staff were great with advice and guidance for each step of the exchange & settlement process. We highly recommend Ryan and the staff from L.J Hooker Mona Vale

Denis & Belinda Corrigan, Mona Vale

I've engaged a number of good realestate agents over the years but none as trustworthy and professional to work with as Ryan. Choosing him over others from our short list was easy. He was the standout and didn't disappoint! He was sharp at assessing our situation and the market, and presented a well designed strategy to maximise the sales potential of the property. Ryan did a great job at every step of the sales process. He was punctual with meetings and communications, always did what he said he would do, was polite and built great rapport with us and prospects alike, and went the extra mile whenever the opportunity arose. His closing skills were second to none. And he was faithfully and professionally supported at all times by his office staff (particularly his partner Brigitte - they are a formidable team!) who did so much leg work and reporting in the background. It is for these reasons that the family and I found Ryan to be such an exceptional agent that we would highly recommend to others.

Martyn Haertsch, Bayview

Ryan provided a buyer and negotiated a sale in one week without the usual open house inspections we were very happy with his services and the fact that he followed through a long seven month settlement period until completion.

Jan and Trevor H - Bayview

Ryan found us the property which was not on the market and negotiated an acceptable deal for us. During the process we found Ryan to be very fair and professional in his approach. Ryan was also very attentive to our many requests with nothing too much bother. We felt we could trust Ryan that at all times he had our interests to the fore. We would certainly recommend him for both buyers or sellers.

Rick & Lynda Hart - Bayview

Ryan Petrie is one of the most professional agents that we have met. His assessment of the market regarding price and target purchaser were accurate. His marketing strategies were tailored individually for our property and our personal needs. He kept us informed every step of the way with follow up emails, phone calls and personal visits. We sold our property within a short time and were very happy with the result. We would recommend Ryan 100% for anyone thinking of selling their property.

Lesley-Anne and Allen - Bayview

Experienced professional - It’s with great pleasure we recommend Ryan to anyone seriously considering putting their home on the market. Ryan has an easy going nature but also reassuringly is assertive, knowledgeable and unwavering in his commitment to the cause. When Ryan says he’s going to do all he can to achieve the results you want in the timeframe agreed upon you should have confidence that he’ll deliver

A great, authentic person in a traditionally "fake" industry. Ryan was an awesome help in selling our house. It was a difficult time and situation for my family and he made things much easier by maintaining open lines of communication and being a positive support during a very hard time. He was authentic and honest and is a genuinely good person. I would highly recommend him

Leticia Cavallaro – Warriewood

We were very impressed with how Ryan handled the sale of our home- was very professional and listened to what we wanted always. Ryan sold the house in 2 weeks for a price we were happy with. Would definitely recommend Ryan to anyone thinking of selling their place.

Tom and Belinda Carroll - Bayview

Ryan is an effective communicator and kept us up to date with weekly reviews and constant feedback on how things were progressing. He has strong local market knowledge and was able to give advice on how to maximise return on the property. Would not hesitate to use Ryan or the team again

Ryan Petrie was a delight to work with. Always available and friendly, courteous and respectful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to my family and friends. His knowledge of the local area is second to none and I would use him for any further real estate dealings

Kate Hatton - Bayview

I made contact with Ryan Petrie after he sold a property in our vicinity. We had a meeting and I was very impressed with his straight forward, clear approach to the intended sale of our property. I remember saying to Ryan that although we had looked into other real estate agents, we hadn't make contact with any of them because we felt that they were all the same. During our first meeting I said to Ryan that I always follow my intuition and my gut feeling at that moment was on his side. He candidly asked: Do you like me? And my answer was yes

Fabiola Berry – Bayview

Ryan was fantastic to deal with, always kept me informed and was honest and reliable, would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone thinking of buying or selling their property, and have already recommended him to friends and family. I have bought and sold many properties and would have to say that Ryan was up there with the best I have dealt with, thanks again

Glenda Christie – Newport

From our first meeting with Ryan, it was clear that he was a genuine, trustworthy and passionate agent. His professionalism and expertise set him above all others. Ryan presented, what we believe was an accurate and concise strategy to achieve our selling goal. Throughout the selling process, he provided detailed information from prospective buyers giving us clear and unbiased feedback on our property. Ryan's dedication got us a staggering $100K more than a similar property that sold two weeks prior. Thank you Ryan!

Andrew and Bath Shearston – Bayview

Terrific result. Ryan gave very good advice for preparation then sold our house in one week. Thoroughly recommend Ryan to anybody looking to sell

Graham and Sandra Camier – Bayview

Ryan will always be our first choice as an agent for the Bayview area. He deserves the amazing reputation he has, being a truly skilled, knowledgeable and hard working agent. And very nice human being too. Thank you Ryan

Richard and Rebecca Bell – Bayview

Ryan Petrie has now sold two houses for us. He is warm, friendly and genuine and we have felt completely relaxed working with him, trusting his judgement, advice and wisdom. Ryan has always been interested in listening to us as we seek to achieve our goals. We would highly recommend Ryan and definitely want to work with him if we were looking to sell another property

Jenny Phillips – Bayview

Recently we had the pleasure of engaging Ryan to sell our home at Bayview. Ryan was extremely professional and organised, his communication was excellent and we were very satisfied with the entire process. In particular, we felt that Ryan excelled with the inspection reports he gave us after each opening. This was no mean feat considering that he had at least 20 groups through our home at each open. Ryan kept us informed of the progress at every stage and we were delighted with the results of the campaign. We have no hesitation in recommending Ryan as an agent to sell your home

Peter and Robyn Daniell – Bayview

Not many agents would have been as polite and patient as Ryan has been with us. We were difficult clients as we put the house up for sale twice before and got cold feet and took it off again. At no time did we feel pressured or a nuisance by Ryan. He dealt with us intelligently and calmly at all times. We have nothing but praise for him and hope he goes far

Brian and Gabrielle Pettit – Bayview

I couldn’t have chosen a better agent to sell my property. Ryan’s professionalism and attention to detail was evident from start to finish, achieving an outstanding result within one week. Ryan kept in constant communication throughout and made the whole process of selling so easy. If you are seeking an agent who ticks all the boxes to sell your property, Ryan Petrie is the agent for you!

Debbie Payne – Narrabeen

We wholeheartedly recommend Ryan Petrie. He not only sold our previous home but also found our new home for us. It is everything we were looking for and we are delighted with it. Ryan knows his market very well but his main skill lies in listening to what his clients want - an all too rare quality

Martin and Margot Rathbone – Church Point

There is no other agent to deal with in Bayview! Ryan Petrie is a true professional that gets the deal through with integrity and a smile. We have and will continue to recommend Ryan Petrie as a trusted Real Estate Professional

Martha and Terry Hutchinson – Bayview

During the selling process, Ryan was always very actively involved, always available for a chat and helpful advice. Both my husband and I would highly recommend Ryan as your agent of choice

Michael and Patricia Briggs – Bayview

From our first meeting with Ryan, we were impressed by his friendly, pragmatic, overall professionalism. His obvious expertise at marketing and selling properties in Bayview and Bayview Heights carried us easily through the sale process which became an enjoyable, stress-free experience with a successful outcome for both ourselves and the buyers. Thanks Ryan!
