Tina Wu came to the Bill Schlink First National team with close ties to the building industry and a strong sales history, giving her a great foundation in which to build her real estate career. Her ability to speak fluent Cantonese and Mandarin provides the opportunity for Tina to communicate with Chinese clients, a real advantage as the buying and selling processes in Australia can be very different from those used overseas.

Living locally in Doncaster East for over 10 years, she has a life-long interest in real estate and many of her friends have sought her opinion over the years in relation to real estate transactions they were considering.

Tina is an open and warm individual who thrives on working industriously to achieve results. She draws on her attention to detail and knowledge & passion for real estate to get things done in an ethical way.

“Working for Bill Schlink First National is a really good fit from me'' says Tina. ''I love working in the friendly team, and everyone else is hard working too. Eddie, the Director, is an excellent mentor when I have needed some further information and advice. I'm working in a really ethical company that doesn't charge clients for advertising, let alone any fees if their property doesn't sell. This has made my transition in to real estate so much easier. I'm here for the long run”.

Dear Tina,

What an exciting two days it has been! How lucky we are to have met you Tina. We have been so impressed by your enthusiasm and professionalism.

You have been so attentive to detail and have followed through to help allay any concerns we had prior to the purchase of our lovely new home. We greatly appreciate your help and look forward to working with you as we finalise the details and move in later in the year.

We are most grateful for your advice and expertise. Thank you for helping to make our dreams come true!

We first met Tina Wu about three years before we eventually sold our house.
 
Initially, Tina knocked on our door and introduced herself to us as a Real Estate Agent who specialised in house sales in our area.  We advised that we had no plans to sell at that point in time.  Tina thanked us for our time and left.
 
About twelve to eighteen months later Tina again approached us to see whether our plans had changed.  We advised her they hadn't, and she again left without being overly pushy.  However, during these initial meetings Tina established that she seemed very knowledgeable and experienced with the property market in our area.  At no point did she overdo the sales pitch to obtain our services.  She has a genuine interest in getting to know prospective sellers and building long term relationships.
 
In mid-2019 we decided we would consider selling our property if we could obtain a favourable price.  We contacted Tina and arranged to meet.  We didn't consider using other Real Estate Agents even though we had been approached by several.  We had determined that we liked Tina's no-nonsense style and with the sales approach taken by the Bill Schlink team.  We had confidence in her ability to sell our home as we had built a rapport with her over the preceding years.
 
At our first meeting to discuss property valuations and a marketing strategy Tina made it clear that if we were going to maximize the value of our home we would need to carry out some repairs and maintenance so we could present the property in the best condition possible.  She was able to advise what things we should do, and what was not important to the ultimate value of our home.  She also recommended some excellent tradespeople to assist with elements of our work.
 
In January 2020, we put the property on the market.  Initially, we advertised the property at a higher price than was Tina's recommended price.  We believed our property was special so we would try our luck at a higher price.  After six weeks, and with the impact of the COVID-19 situation, we realised our price expectations were not in line with current market conditions, so modified our asking price to Tina's recommended range.
 
Eight weeks after the property first went on the market, we sold our much loved home.  Tina's price valuation proved remarkably accurate.
 
Through the entire marketing process Tina and the team at Bill Schlink were extremely professional and in tune with existing market conditions.  They also gave plenty of advice how to maximise our property's potential.
 
We are extremely grateful to Tina, Eddie and Isaac for the effort they provided in helping us achieve an excellent result.
 
We would thoroughly recommend Tina and the team at Bill Schlink to any prospective sellers.

Williamsons Road Templestowe - May 2020


 
 
 
 
In mid 2019, I was searching for the desired property for my finace Kristy and me to live in with specific set of criteria.  After attending many open inspections around Doncaster area, I found it very disappointing to see many properties either not matching the conditions as shown in their advertisements or built with poor quality materials and layouts.  It was also frustrating to receive all these standard robot calls from property sales agents after open inspections who they did not have the intention to understand what I really want.  Once they realised that I was not an interested buyer, they would disappear without a trace.  Maybe they did care but I just wasn't feeling confident with their approach or attitude.
 
 
Just when I was about to give up looking for a home and switched to finding investment properties instead, I was being introduced to Tina Wu.  I immediately found her very approachable and she paid attention of my requirements.  I know she gets it.  Tina then personally picked me up with her car and drove me around the suburbs to see multiple properties.  We chatted and talked about our interests like an old friend, not once I felt being pressured by a sales pitch.  In that trip, I saw one that we would love to call home.  I decided to purchase it within 24 hours and signed the contract.
 
 
Since my first experience in dealing with Tina was so pleasant and easy, I asked Tina to show me more properties within that month.  She found a perfect old house for me to purchase off the market as I love doing renovation improvement as an investment strategy.  Tina knows how to look for a fair price for both Vendor and buyer to agree on, cut out those time wasting negotiations and unnecessary auction sales.
 
 
I would recommend Tina to anyone who is looking to buy in Templestowe and its surrounding areas.  She is definitely the go to person based on her extensive knowledge, patience and connections.
 
 
Kind regards

Testimonial for Tina Wu and Bill Schlink Team
 
 
To Whom It May Concern
 
 
 
Selling and buying a home is a big deal and it is important that we are confident in the person who is representing us.
 
Since beginning of this year, my husband and I wanted to sell our property at 11 Burge Court, Doncaster East.  We were very exhausted as facing a lot of challenges and poor market response.
 
After many unsuccessful attempts, we recently decided to engage Tina Wu, and her team at Bill Schlink.  Within 2 months period, they have shown us some great results.  We both are extremely impressed and grateful for all their effort and extra miles they had put in to achieve such a great success.
 
Tina is a very professional, and she thoroughly understands the various aspects of the real estate market, such as property value, marketing, legal issues and has excellent people skills.
 
She shows extraordinary dedication to our interest by tirelessly working to ensure we found a good buyer that we were truly satisfied with, even though it means additional work for her. She always makes sure we understand the entire process and procedures.
 
Moreover, she is like part of our family member, a great sister and always supporting us sincerely with all the great advice and guidance in many aspects, and not just focusing on selling our property.  She always keeps us updated with everything we needed to know and is always ready to offer professional and personal advices.
 
Tina is absolutely an exceptional realtor who places professionalism and customer satisfaction as our highest priority.  We would strongly recommend Tina and their support team to anyone as the preferred seller's representative.
 
Thank you very much and all the best to Tina and Bill Schlink Team!
 
Yours sincerely

Over 18 months ago my husband and I were fortunate to first meet Tina Wu in her capacity as an agent for First National Real Estate Bill Schlink.  We had already been on the hunt for just the right property for our downsizing needs for more than two years.
 
Tina made a note of our specific needs and unlike so many other agents, she refrained from bothering us and wasting everyone's time with countless irrelevant properties, just because they were in her listings.
 
Instead, when she did contact us some ten months down the track, she did so with the perfect property before it actually went on to the market.  She then worked with the Vendor to arrange a two-week window for us to sell our property which we actually completed in three days!
 
Hence, with her creative approach, she facilitated a relatively painless successful sale for her Vendor and delivered us our dream property.  We will be forever grateful to Tina for her ability to think outside the normal real estate parameters.

We cannot thank Tina Wu, Eddie Fakhri and the wonderful team at Bill Schlink Real Estate enough for the fantastic result they achieved when selling our Templestowe property.

Tina is without doubt the most honest, ethical and openly communicative agent we have ever dealt with... no small achievement as we've bought and sold over twenty properties throughout two decades! During the selling process Tina worked incredibly hard to achieve the best outcome for our property and kept us well informed throughout the process.

Our property was a particularly complex one to sell for although our home was much loved, on a generous block size and with wonderful views, location, nearby amenities and neighbouring homes, it was older and not quite fully renovated. Tina and her lovely team found the perfect buyer for our beloved "renovator's delight", who could see beyond its cosmetic faults to the potential of building their dream home, and for a price we were very happy with.

I would not hesitate to recommend Tina Wu to other people interested in selling their property as she is an incredibly hard working dynamo who knows the market well, has exceptional people and communication skills and prides herself on achieving the best possible outcome for her clients.

I met Tina Wu a few years ago, when she was working in the neighbourhood of Doncaster.  She impressed me with her knowledge of the market and her sales record.  She came across as a very hardworking and an honest person.  I met her on a few other occasions and each time she took the time to appraise my property as well as to update me on the current real estate market.  Similarly I met other property agents but Tina stood out for being sincere and caring about my personal circumstance.
 
I decided to sell my investment property in October last year, my decision on real estate agent was an easy one.  Tina was professional at all times and the advice she gave me was right for the current market.  I had the confidence that she will work hard and use varied strategies to get me the best price possible.
 
Tina was transparent through the whole process.  She gave me regular feedback on inspections and changes in the market.  She guided me but respected my decisions at every stage.  She was very respectful and considerate of my tenant and all inspections were done efficiently with as little inconvenience to the tenant as possible.
 
Her persistence, determination and commitment achieved a good outcome inspite of the depressed market.
 
I am grateful to Tina for the outcome that was achieved.

Dear Tina,

 

My wife Yolanda and I would like to thank you and your colleagues for excellent services and very successful sale of our house on Templestowe Lower recently. 

The key reason for such successful sale is that your Bill Schlink team and you have rich experience of marketing and providing professional services. The most important reason is that you are a person we can trust a lot. It is helping us to make final decision to sell.

We both also very happy with your services and not only for sale but also to fix problem of leasing house on short time. We both are very old. It is difficult for us to get living place of good location as soon as can. We know that it is extra job for you. You still keep patient and help us very kindly.

We have to say that we will recommend Tina and your Bill Schlink to my friends to use your wonderful services.

 

Best regards,

Selling our house in Donvale


June 2017

 

We have been in our home for 32 years, so the decision to sell and move was daunting, yet full of wonder and expectations of things to come our way. 

So we were delighted to meet with Sarah a dynamic person who listened to us intently and then advised us of a strategy we were comfortable with in order to begin the journey.

Sarah's approach is friendly, professional and ethical so we knew that Bill Schlink First National was the agency for us.

Sarah kept us informed through the whole process and was always there to help and follow up our questions. 

The team came to visit our house and they were all very committed to the sale of our house.Tina sold our home for us and her commitment and determination was amazing.

Tina involved our family in the whole process and understood all our expectations, appreciating our gardens and the environment.

Thank you so much Tina.   We have no hesitation in recommending the Bill Schlink First National team to our family and friends. 

Thank you,

To the team at First National, 
  
My husband and I would like to thank you so much for your help and advice during the sale of our house.
 
The professionalism of both Sarah and Tina was beyond reproach as they both worked hard and long to secure the best possible price for our property.  They were always available for updates and to report on client reaction, something most appreciated by my husband and me.
 
It was a pleasure to welcome Ashley whenever he arrived with clients and to know he too had our best interest at heart.
 
And it would be remiss of us to not mention the respect and consideration shown us and advice given to us by Eddie.  We have greatly appreciated his care and concern for us.  Overall, we discovered that although this agency is small by standards in our area, the work ethic of the personnel was certainly outstanding, making us the Vendors feel we were special and that they really cared about us and our property.
 
As a result, we are now in the process of purchasing another property from this agency.
 
Many thanks to the team.

To whom it may concern,

It is with pleasure and gratitude that we share comments on our experience with Tina Wu in the listing and sale of our home.  While we have bought and sold a number of houses, we have never before encountered such a level of excellence.

The experience at each phase of the sales effort was superior, such as innovative efforts in developing prospects, useful insights on pre-listing renovations/staging, effective showings and proactive facilitation during the sale negotiations/due diligence.  All of these tasks, whether business-related or interpersonal, were accomplished with a noticeable degree of competence, humility, integrity and grace.

Thus, we highly recommend Tina Wu for all your residential real estate needs.

Hi Tina,

We would like to thank you for your dedication, determination and assistance during the process of selling and buying our homes. 

Without your endless efforts we would not be able to settle into our new beautiful, spacious home.  My children are so happy here.  They keep telling me how appreciative they are to this so-private, so-convenient and so-amazing place.Your timeless communication - phone calls, house calls, text messages at any time of any any day - to help us to sort out all issues and follow them up daily, to assist us in transforming our messy home to a presentable, sellable state.

It's astounding that you can sell our houes within 16 days.  Even after signing the contract you still communicated daily to ensure that all issues were resolved and offered any help we might need. 

We are buying and selling many properties in the past but this is the first time we met an agent who has such incredible dedication, caring, compassion in selling our home and finding our new home.

We proudly recommend Tina Wu to anyone who wishes to buy or sell their home because we believe she can help them to achieve their goal.

Once again BIG thank you to your amazing effort and support.

Sincerely,

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN,

 

Tina Wu recently sold our property and it is with pleasure and gratitude that we write this testimonial.

Tina's happy friendly disposition, outstanding customer service skills and obvious sincerity made selling our property a very pleasant experience. We are confident that she achieved an excellent result for us.

As a licensed real estate agent, Tina is comparatively new to full-time real estate negotiation but her life experiences, previous selling experience and interest in real estate make her perfectly suited to her role with Bill Schlink First National.

We would confidently recommend Tina's services to others and, should the opportunity arise, would use her services again.

Thank you and best wishes Tina.
