What Carl's clients are saying
Friendly and can see that he genuinely wants to help.
Fantastic experience working with Carl and Donna. Consummate professionals! The most important thing to me in selling a property is clear, honest communication with my agent. Carl was fantastic on this - frequent updates and check-ins giving me a clear understanding of the evolving market and potential buyers for the property. In the uncertain and unpredictable market of 2020, this was particularly important. Carl has a calm, warm style that clearly worked well with buyers and my tenants. Ultimately we got the outcome we wanted price-wise in a process that was smooth and hassle free. I would highly recommend Carl and Donna as agents in the Upper North Shore area and will certainly happily use them again if the opportunity presents itself.
We found Carl and the team from MB at Wahroonga to be professional, transparent and very helpful during the whole process of the opens through to the auction. Happy to facilitate obtaining additional information on the property from the buyer and arranging other viewings outside the scheduled opens. Very quick to respond to emails and calls.
Carl is a very personable agent who responded immediately to our numerous
requests for information on the property. He was absolutely transparent with
regard to any maintenance issues , existing or potential. We always felt confident
he would act fairly to all, as indeed he did. At the auction, all bidders were given
ample time to consider all options and the amounts bid were constantly clarified. I could not fault his professionalism in any way. I would recommend him highly to anyone.
Carl is a very genuine, intelligent and strategic agent. I chose Carl because of his
different approach to marketing my home. I followed all his suggestions and
instructions in marketing and home presentation. Carl's advice and recommendations were invaluable including some very simple and sensible minor changes that made all the difference. Carl's communication and feed back each day was fantastic. Carl's approach with the prospects and auction strategy was very sound and achieved a price beyond my expectations.
From start to finish, Carl has been super professional, super responsive, absolutely spot on with recommendations and super helpful in planning the whole process of selling a house. He has worked brilliantly together with Donna and it didn't matter who you spoke to, they both were on top of their game.
Thanks Carl and Donna for a fantastic result,...you and your team were an absolute pleasure to work with. We could include all the superlatives, but the greatest testament to the work you did for us is that we would have no hesitation to work with you again in the future. With over 30 years in Advertising, Sales and Marketing myself, I believe the entire MB package from start to finish is second to none. We’d highly recommend ‘Team Ferris’ to anyone who might be planning to buy or sell on the North Shore in the future.
Rob and I appreciated your conscientious and courteous approach to us. We valued your integrity and honesty and the considerable efforts you made on our behalf over a long period of time. Thank you for your help.
I have been involved in the property market for over 20 years. During this time I have sold and purchased a number of properties on Sydney's North Shore. I recently contracted both Donna & Carl Ferris in the sale of my latest project. This was my first dealing with them as agents for sale, from our initial meeting both Donna & Carl told me everything I wanted to hear. Prior agents I had engaged in the past had naturally pitch the same. However this time, Donna & Carl delivered in all areas. Communication was made on a daily basis, negotiation of the sale was first class, their obvious market knowledge was apparent from estimating the parameters of end sale price to capturing potential buyers. They worked hard throughout the sales campaign, from advertising through to contract signing, they did exactly what they said they would do and more. There is really nothing I could fault in my dealings with them, I can now say I have complete confidence and trust in them both. I would rarely give a high recommendation to engage anyone, however in this case I'm more than happy to highly recommend Donna & Carl.
Carl assisted us to sell our house from overseas. He kept us well informed & gave a wonderful professional advice, which made the whole experience straight forward. We were very pleased with our Sale. Would highly recommend Carl.
I would very much recommend Carl & Donna Ferris, Caitlin Hardy and all the team. They achieved a wonderful result for the sale of our much loved family home of many years. Their market knowledge, professionalism and communication throughout made the whole process run smoothly. The auctioneer did a sterling job.
Donna and Carl Ferris were an excellent agency team and we would not hesitate to recommend them to others. They ran a fantastic marketing campaign, provided excellent advice, kept in constant communication to inform us of any developments and found a strong pool of buyers for our property - all of which resulted in a fantastic sale price at auction. We are extremely happy with their performance - thank you.
RON & VICTORIA
Highly Professional Sale in 1 week. Carl provided expert guidance before and during a 4 week auction campaign to drive a great sale within 6 days. Seamless, trustworthy, articulate and professional - highly recommended
Thank you Donna and Carl for the assistance in selling and the advice given in the process. The presentation of the house certainly attracted a lot of interest. It was certainly a flat weekend but the way you encouraged the interested buyers to stay interested and for one to make an only offer was excellent. Your support the take the "bird in hand" offer was spot on and I think I would have been selling in a flatter market months later.
We recently purchased through Carl and it was an absolute pleasure. He and the full team at MB were friendly, helpful, professional, and obliging. They had all the answers to our questions, before we asked them, and made us feel really comfortable with the purchase of this property.
When the time comes to sell we will be looking for Carl again! Highly recommended
We can 100% recommend Carl Ferris and Donna Ferris and their highly competent team at McConnell Bourn including the copywriter, photographer and stylist.
We had a great experience and are thrilled with the fantastic result they achieved in selling our home in just 14 days.
Their expert advise, guidance and excellent communication at every step in the process instilled us with the confidence we needed to sell our family home after 20 years.
JEANETTE & MARK
Carl demonstrated a sound knowledge of the area, a deep understanding of building lasting relationships and strong communication skills. I recommend Carl as a agent you can trust, we did.
Leah & Andrew
Carl was a pleasure to work with. He sold our home into a difficult market. He didn’t make a fuss but just got on with the job. We sold after having our house on the market for several months. Time was on our side so we were able to wait for the right price. Thanks to both Donna and Carl for a job well done.
The selling of our apartment, especially during the very difficult time of Covid-19, was made a more bearable experience by the professionalism and effort made by Donna and Carl. They kept in constant contact, were positive and yet very open and honest with their communications and reporting even when interest was very slow. Carl was very well informed regarding the latest movements in the local market and his advice was very valuable and greatly appreciated.
Cannot recommend Carl highly enough. Communication throughout the stressful process of selling was very important to me. Carl was in constant communication, often contacting me daily with updates throughout the selling campaign. I was particularly happy with the result Carl was able to achieve in a very tough market, this is a testament to his impressive negotiation skills. Would certainly use Carl if I am selling again.
We had an excellent experience with Carl. We sold our property from overseas and Carl phoned almost daily to keep us informed on activity around our property but also in detailed context of the market and nearby sales. He followed up with regular written reports so that we never felt out of the loop.
Carl provided advice and guidance on key decisions and we always felt that he had our best interests at heart. At one point, he even mowed our lawns himself to get them ready for inspection! Overall, I’d really recommend working with Carl if you have the chance.
Thanks for selling my home and keeping me in the loop during the campaign. It was made easy and the new owners are thrilled to be close to family.
