“We recently chose Summer Sun as the agent to sell our property and it was the best decision we could have made. Before entrusting Summer with the sale we did due process and approached three real estate firms and Summer stood out from the rest because of the obvious enthusiasm she has for her job as a real estate agent.
Summer presented us with a comprehensive plan of how she felt the property would best sell and followed with a clearly written plan of what had been discussed. Various advertising options were offered to us. Once we had accepted the advertising plan we were most comfortable with, Summer proceeded to set the sale in motion in a most efficient and timely manner.
Open homes were conducted extremely well, and following these, Summer kept us informed fully on how many groups went through each day and presented us with a written update each week of comments from each group after she had telephoned them.
We believe that Summer is the best real estate agent we have ever dealt with and we have sold several houses over the years. Her professional attitude and attention to detail is first rate and her ability to be able to read the prospective buyers is outstanding. At all times we felt that Summer was acting in our best interest while being a most delightful person to deal with and we have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone interested in selling their property.”

“I recently sold an investment property (bungalow, Balmoral) using Summer Sun as my agent. The property sold after one weekend of open homes, with 4 offers being presented to me on the Monday. All four offers were above the price I expected.
Before listing my property, Summer took me through a similar property to mine which was on the market at the same time. She then attended the auction of that property with me, as I wanted to see how much activity had been generated. I appreciated this level of attention being afforded to me.
One of the reasons I listed with Summer is because I felt my property would have good appeal to the Asian investor market. Summer easily taps into that market, but equally she deals well with non-Asian buyers. My property ultimately sold to an Asian couple. Another reason I listed with her is because I wanted my listing to be with a successful agent - Summer has been a very successful agent (top 5% of 1000+ agents 2011, No.1 Inner West Region 2012/2013 etc.)
As soon as my property had been listed, Summer forwarded details of it to a large number of potential buyers that she has within her own database. This itself generated interest before any more standard marketing had taken place. I would have no hesitation recommending Summer to any vendor & would certainly use her again myself on any future property transactions I undertake.”

“I have known Summer Sun since 2008. I have listed a number of properties with Summer and all have been sold. There are a large number of agents to choose from in the market. However I think that it is necessary to deal with one who is professional in their approach as to the sale of the property and who has the experience and track record to achieve a satisfactory result for the vendor and the buyer. There is too much at stake to deal with someone who is not committed to achieving a result.
I have found Summer to be a conscientious and hard working salesperson. She is always positive and approachable and is definitely not aggressive. She is aware that she is working for the vendor and that the relationship with the vendor should be respected.
I am aware that Summer is also able to build constructive relationships with buyers and can make them feel comfortable during what can be a stressful process for them. To obtain a good result it is always advisable to use the best people for the job. I have found Summer to be excellent at her job which is why I have continued to do business with her.”
Long time client
“We had interviewed three Real Estate agents regarding the sale of our house. We wanted to include Summer in the interviews because we had found her extremely knowledgeable and helpful some days earlier when we had talked to her about one of her listings. We were impressed with Summer’s strategy for marketing the house and asked her to list it.
During the marketing phase, Summer achieved wide exposure for the house and developed an extremely good rapport with the various buyers that showed an interest. She regularly updated us on progress and was very thorough in following up all buyer enquiries. Summer managed to get a number of interested groups to the auction resulting in competitive bidding and an excellent sale price.
Summer has been professional and pleasant to deal with at all times and we highly recommend her to anyone considering selling their home.”

“I have had the utmost pleasure in having Kalala Lavea & Summer Sun from Bayleys Sandringham represent us in selling our family home. Kalala and Summer were so easy to deal with in all matters around selling the property, offering great tips/advice as to how it will be marketed to key buyers and above all producing a premium result.
I have found both Kalala and Summer very caring and friendly offering their lawnmower and weed eater to help tidy up the section and going above and beyond in offering to help clean up and make our home more appealing.
They are both extremely very hard working, caring, wonderful top notch real estate agents that we were so very lucky to have had the pleasure of working with.
We can't thank you enough for making this experience for myself and my mum a pleasant non daunting but happy smooth journey in the sale of our home.
BAYLEYS YOU HAVE TWO VERY DEDICATED, EXCELLENT, WONDERFUL SALESPEOPLE WORKING FOR YOU IN KALALA AND SUMMER.
WE HOPE YOU APPRECIATE THEM AS MUCH AS WE HAVE.” Myrna & Pete, Sandringham Rd Extension
