What Our Clients Think

Ashley Horswill was the agent we chose after comparing several in our area. The house sold in record time at a value we were happy with. From the start Ashley was very professional and walked us through the necessary steps. He was able to clarify the current market in a no frills way and made suggestions on property preparation, sale value, marketing techniques, costs and a host of other things that allowed me to make an informed decision. The house sold in the time Ashley indicated and we were happy with the result. I would recommend Ashley’s services as a real estate Agent without hesitation.

When we decided to sell our house at The Gap, choosing an agent was simple, Simon Pringle. We bought the property through Simon and it was such an easy and flawless experience that we returned to what we know. He hasn’t disappointed. Easy to talk to, ever approachable and nothing is too much of a bother. What is usually a stressful situation, has been nothing of the sort.

Vendor Review – Tanya & Darren

He attempted to get me the best price possible in a pretty soft market. Showed good negotiating skills when dealing with the buyer who was steadfast in their low price offer. Gave me good advice when I was ready to take the property off the market resulting in an eventual sale. Generally, Ashley is good at his job and his ability to instill trust in the owner that he will get the property sold.

Vendor Review – Lawrence

We were very pleased with the Pre Listing, Campaign Period, and Post sales service we received from Simon and his team. He helped understand the value of our property, recommended some quick and easy things to fix to ensure best presentation of the house and garden and we were under contract within a week! For the price that we wanted. Simon’s office even maintained the house and gardens right up until settlement, as our property was empty. Simon has been a no-nonsense agent in all the dealings we have had with him and I wouldn’t hesitate doing business with him again.

Vendor Review - Cameron

We employed Ashley Horswill to sell our family home in Ashgrove. We have known Ashley for many years having purchased our first property in Paddington from him almost 20 years earlier. WE are a well known family in the inner west and are friends with some of the other local agents making the choice of appointing an agent particularly difficult. Ashley has always remained close to the family even though we used other agents for other property sales over the years and didn’t waver in his professionalism. He did a fantastic job of selling the house for us. He was honest, tenacious and supportive. We achieved our outcome. Mission accomplished !! I would have no hesitation in recommending Ashley as your selling agent. He is a good as it gets.

Vendor Review - Adrian

Simon was excellent from start to finish. Not only did he listen to what we wanted, he was happy to tailor the experience around our expectations. He was not pushy. He was very efficient. We had one open-house with a very good attendance and we had an offer in a matter of days. We can’t recommend Simon highly enough.

Vendor Review – Rebecca

Ashley was super great to deal with throughout the whole process. He was prompt in communicating and very open to answering questions and providing information and assistance where he could. He was very knowledgeable, and made the process a lot easier!

Buyer Review - Angela

Simon is a trustworthy agent who is very knowledgeable about the local real estate market. He assisted with the purchase of our new property, and subsequent sale of our home. Our home was under contract in just ten days, for over the asking price. Simon is patient with, and considerate of both parties involved in a sale, and works to achieve the best outcomes for all involved.

Vendor Review - Raynee

Ashley was acting for the sellers of the property that I purchased. I was very impressed with the professional way in which he went about this. There were some issues raised after the building inspection and we were able to overcome these because of the constructive approach he, and the sellers, took. Another agent would have easily become flustered or even overly assertive. We experience the opposite.

Buyer Review – F.Guthrie

Simon’s attitude towards his work is next level. He helped us through every aspect of our house sale, from getting in ready for market to settlement. He came up with sensible solutions, kept us informed and was always on time. I would recommend Simon Pringle as an agent and I definitely will be contacting him for my next purchase or sale.

Vendor Review - Kieron

Ashley proved to be very attentive and worked hard to achieve the best price for my property. He demonstrated an insight into the property market, highly skilled negotiating skills and went the extra miles to achieve the best possible result. I always felt like Ashley was working to get the best possible price for my property. He would check in regularly and was very easy to deal with. A highly recommended, knowledgeable and trustworthy agent.

Vendor Review

We had purchased the home through Simon so it was appropriate that he should handle its sale. Simon has lengthy experience with properties in The Gap, making it simple to assess accurate pricing and marketing strategy. He is totally attentive to both the vendor and buyer, ensuring a speedy and satisfactory outcome for all. We were personally able to sell this home and purchase another all within a three week time frame. Simon can recommend reliable trades persons who will quickly prepare a home for optimal presentation, resulting in a higher return.

Vendor Review - Shirley

I would greatly recommend Ashley – I felt I could trust him, that he would not only do a professional job marketing my property but he would do his best to achieve a good outcome. By the time my property was ready for sale the market had slowed which was evident in numbers viewing the property. Nevertheless, Ash was able to get 3 offers, and a good price. But more than anything, I felt that he was honest, sincere and a pleasure to work with.

Vendor Review - Mary

Simon has gone out of the way to provide me with a sale of my home in The Gap. At all times he acted with courtesy and respect, whilst guiding me through the process. Simon also spent a lot of time and energy helping me present my home to show it at its best. He is the type of professional that gives real estate agents a good name.

Simon sold me my home originally and he has kept in touch over the intervening years. He always has a smile and a good word and I would heartily recommend him to anyone.

Vendor Review - Naomi

Ashley did a superb job selling our property, very professional from start to finish. Showed a lot of respect to us during this process and made a great friend as well. Would highly recommend Ash and his team to anyone wanting to sell their property.

Simon proved himself to be very knowledgeable in the local market and placed the house well within the market. We were kept up to date on market conditions and received sound advice on how to present the property. The property was sold for a satisfactory amount and within a suitable time frame. We would not hesitate to recommend Simon as your selling agent.

Vendor Review - Gary

This is the second time I have contracted Ashley to sell my home.

He is a hard working, genuine agent.

He is well versed in all the stages of the sale and follows every step through to ensure a good outcome.

I have no hesitation in recommending Ashley to any prospective vendors. He has a lot of experience, he is a great communicator and works hard to get you the best price that the market will deliver.

I would definitely use Ashley again.

Vendor Review – Mary-Ann

What a fantastic agent. I had noted Simon around the suburb for a number of years and he was always open, happy and friendly. When I suddenly found myself on my own due to my husband’s unexpected death I needed guidance. Simon helped me beyond the service provided by an agent. He guided me through the process and made the whole sale easy. He sold the house quickly and treated both myself and the buyers with great respect. He is (in my opinion) the greatest agent in The Gap.

Vendor Review - Donna

Couldn’t be more satisfied!

Ashley was very professional and very patient during the whole process.

Being a first home owner would be scary but they make the purchase a very pleasant one. If you’re looking for a service that would be described as ‘perfect’, look nowhere.

Buyer Review - Emmi

Simon Pringle is that rare find in a world of real estate, a man who combines great experience of the market with a high standard of ethics, a genuine interest in your well- being, and the ability to make complex issues understandable. He was patient, never pushy, and told it like it was. In other words he is genuinely trustworthy. He really is an agent who will go the extra mile for his client.

Although he works from the city, he was far more successful at marketing our acreage at a good price than the local agents.

Simon’s unassuming manner and sincerity make him a delight to deal with. His efficiency and attention to detail were impeccable and his positive outlook meant that we felt very confident throughout the selling process.

We owe him a great deal of gratitude for all the support he gave us and cannot recommend him highly enough.
