Theo & Vicky from Doncaster


Dear Eddie, We are writing this letter to express how pleased we are with the exceptional job you and Ashley Collins and the team at Bill Schlink First National Templestowe did for the sale of our home. You sold our home within 3 days of listing the property which we thought was an amazing result. The sale went smoothly and we couldn't be happier with the price achieved. The entire team made sure our selling experience was as stress free as possible, you kept us updated and informed the whole way, the feedback was ongoing after each inspection. We strongly recommend Eddie and the team at First National Templestowe who either wish to sell their property or wish to buy a home in the area, and would be happy for anyone to contact us directly as a personal reference. EXCEPTIONAL JOB! Kind Regards Theo & Vicky Nianios

Beryl from Templestowe


October 2014 How do you choose who to engage to sell your home? I was aware of many different agencies in my area who were offering their services. However I knew I didn't want an auction and also wanted someone local. I could not have made a better choice than the Templestowe office of First National Bill Schlink Real Estate. One phone call brought Ashley Collins to my home. From that moment the whole process of selling was stress free and utterly painless. Ashley and Sarah were quickly bringing buyers to view. Their communication with me was constant and professional but also very friendly. Very soon an excellent result was accomplished and again they provided lots of help with paper work and details. Thank you Ashley for being so friendly and easy to deal with throughout the whole process. If you want the 'best' in real estate give First National in Templestowe a call, the whole team are extremely professional and helpful.   Beryl

Colin & Naida of Templestowe


23 September 2014 Dear Ashley, Having been referred to First National Real Estate, Templestowe by a neighbourhood friend, who had sold her home through your office, and following a letter box flyer outlining a marketing approach which was exactly what suited our needs, we had the good fortune to meet Ashley to discuss the sale of our home. Ashley provided sound, friendly and helpful information along with a realistic figure reflective of our home and relative to the current market in Templestowe. His patience and attention to detail was outstanding, this included a pleasant weekly meeting over coffee where he provided updates on the campaign. His strategy was excellent, we sold quickly and we are delighted with the result. We would highly recommend Bill Schlink, First National Real Estate, Templestowe and Ashley to any prospective vendor or purchaser. Our thanks also to other members of the team who assisted in the sale of our home. With kind regards, Colin & Naida Gross

Katy and Scott from Donvale


15 September 2014   Ashley was a fantastic real estate agent: pleasant and professional. He helped us find trustworthy tradespeople to get our house ready for sale, and, when potential buyers identified a concern about our property, he got a quote from another tradesperson as to how much this would cost a potential buyer to fix which certainly enabled the property to be sold quickly.   He and the team at First National made sure our property was well promoted on the web. First National's system of not going to auction, not having expensive glossy ads and brochures and making sure all costs were upfront was really ideal for us. As buyers we vastly preferred looking at places where the owner stated the genuine price they wanted, and we thought that potential buyers of our house would be the same.   We were very happy with the price and terms of sale which we got in the end. We would recommend Ashley and the team at First National.   Kind regards,   Ka...
