Geoff & Robyn March | 45 Bennett St, West Ryde
We had our house on the market with another agent for over three months and did not sell. We decided to go with Michael as his knowledge of the local area and expertise in the market gave us confidence that he would be able to produce a great sale. Within a week of going on the market, we had an offer which we were very happy with. This sale process has been hassle-free and quick which is astounding considering the COVID-19 restrictions currently in place. We thoroughly recommend Michael.
Tony & Teena | 39 Watts Rd, Ryde
I interviewed many agents before trusting Michael and his team to sell our family house to relocate to retire. The house needed extensive renovations, so I knew it would not be easy to sell at the price we needed. Michael gave sound pre-sale advice about how to improve the presentation of our home and garden with minimum cost, and connected us with economical skilful trades workers. As a result, my home sold off-market for a fair price, so we did not have to go to auction…..
Vera Politis | 21 Constitution Rd, Ryde
We can’t speak more highly of Michael and his team at McGrath Ryde. They are extremely knowledgeable about the Ryde property market, and their advice to us during our recent sale proved this. We trusted them implicitly, and their communication with us at each stage of the sale was superb. They were always responsive! We received a fantastic result, and we would highly recommend Michael to anyone else looking to sell a property in the Ryde area.
Stuart and Megan Cook | 94 Buffalo Road
We entrusted Michael Dowling and his team at McGrath Ryde the task of selling our unit and they achieved a stellar result! Michael’s no B.S. approach, market knowledge, and honesty will put you at ease knowing you’ve selected the best team for the job. His team very ably managed a minor renovation of the unit in a matter of weeks whilst keeping us in the loop at all times. With the property presenting well with modern styling and top-notch marketing material, Michael sold the property after the first viewing, and at a record price for the block! Needless to say, we were delighted with the result and the services provided by the whole McGrath Ryde team throughout the process. Thank you and keep up the great work.
Minh Tran | 84/106 Crimea Road
Michael has delivered professional marketing service and great negotiator while selling my unit Ryde. I definitely recommend him to my friends.
Kartika and Sartika Adji | 10/15 Curzon Street
We knew that selling our property was going to be a daunting experience and we wanted to find the right agent for this job. As soon as we met Michael, we felt that we could trust him and that he would be able to deliver this for us. We are happy with the way Michael and his team worked with us, in the lead up to auction day and we felt that they were really looking after our best interests. Thank you Michael for all your hard work!
John & Diane Kuman | 19 Dorothy Street
Selling a property to me was always going to be a “painful” experience due to the change, the perceived efforts required to sell and obviously the long wait for a result. You have made it painless for me. The result achieved was outstanding and we thank you for that. You have given us a great jump-off platform to buying our new place.
Geraldine Mendoza | 24/10 Price Street
Outstanding service from a thorough professional. Michael is extremely talented and meticulous in everything that he does. His genuine friendly demeanour and most importantly honesty make him an ideal agent to have when either wanting to buy or sell.
Christopher Minol | 2/6 Romani Street
I just wanted to thank both of you for all your hard work and help on selling our place.
You are both committed and hard working people and we wish you all the best as you build up your business in Ryde.
Stephanie and Dominic Fedrigo | 9/70 Phillip Road
After the high of the weekend we just wanted to quickly touch base with you to say a huge thank you! We’re obviously totally stoked with the outcome and it’s a huge credit to the team. The communication, professionalism and approachability throughout the whole process was exceptional. We felt comfortable and well looked after, reassuring us that our best interests were always paramount. Michael, from our initial consultation through to auction day we were made to feel like we were your most important client, which is a tricky balance to strike when you juggle all the properties that you do! Your honesty, genuine care and knowledge made it an easy choice to choose you, but then your commitment and dedication throughout the process was just next level. You dedicated so much time to us, in which you were so thorough and transparent about what to expect and how we would navigate through the process. Your expertise and integrity instilled much confidence in us. We loved how passionate you are about what you do and your down to earth personality. So again, thank you so much for all your efforts and for being such wonderful people.

We recently engaged Michael Dowling and his team at McGrath Ryde to market and sell our parents home at Ryde. Michael’s extensive knowledge of the local market, his genuine interest in us and his relaxed yet meticulous nature were big factors that helped us to decide to use Michael and his team. Their extensive and most importantly “qualified” client data base, along with a targeted marketing plan which we all decided on, ensured that we had a huge number of interested parties viewing the property at the open homes, which resulted in a large number of genuine buyers that registered and also joined in the bidding on auction day. The communication during the entire process was first class and we were always kept in the loop with the progress and numbers following the open homes and leading up to auction day. Nothing was forced on us, Michael provided guidance and advice all based on their extensive research, but in the end it was our decision which way to go; thankfully we took his advice. Without hesitation we would highly recommend that anyone interested in selling their property engage Michael Dowling and his team as you won’t be disappointed.
Graham Dowd & Malcolm Dowd | 24 Heath Street
We just want to extend a heartfelt thank you for all your help and assistance during the whole process of selling our house. You guys run a great business and are extremely professional and diligent. You also have a great team behind you with Bianca and Kyna. An absolute pleasure to work with. You were also great at reassuring us and keeping both of us calm during the whole process. We were very pleased with the result, so thank you for all your hard work!
Jimmy and Claire Allen | 14 Santa Rosa Avenue
I have no hesitation in recommending Michael and Chris from McGrath Ryde to my friends, family and colleagues. With McGrath we got more than our reserve, and only two weeks into our marketing campaign our property was sold. Nothing was too much trouble, all our questions and fears were answered easily, the whole team made the selling of our property stress free.
Leanne Riley | 14 Lucinda Road
I would like to give a huge shout out to my real estate agent Michael Dowling and his team at McGrath Ryde. I walked in enquiring about a property they had on the market and walked out absolutely sure of SELLING my property. I had my concerns and Michael and Chris sorted through them and listened to my suggestions. That’s a real team. Being such a unique property we were inundated with interest. Saturday we held the auction and even though we knew it was going to go well I was blown away. So if you’re thinking of selling or buying go have a chat to Michael at McGrath. Thank you thank you thank you Michael, Chris and ALL the team.
Melisa Prieto | 31 Belmore Street
I sincerely thank you for the result and the amazing support and customer service provided throughout the sale process. At our initial meeting I realised that you were the ‘young man’ that spoke to my Dad (deceased) from time to time and kept him updated on the local property market. You and your team anticipated queries and proactively kept me updated at every point of the process. We benefited greatly from your hands on knowledge of the local market. With me living interstate this was particularly important as I needed to trust someone. After previous negative experiences when I was always sceptical, however you exceeded my expectations in every aspect making the very difficult process of selling our family home as seamless and easy as it could have been.
Suzanne Coyle | 103 North Road
Thank you to Michael, Chris, Bianca and the team at McGrath Ryde for selling our property at 139 Buffalo Rd Ryde. We are very pleased with the Sale result. You provided us with a high level of communication and follow up throughout the process, it felt like we were working with a friend rather than a real estate agent. You have earned a flawless reputation by your amazing work ethic. We would recommend you to anyone without reservations. Thank you for such a brilliant service.
Sam and Wendy | 139 Buffalo Road
I would like to take the time to formally thank you all for the effort and professionalism you showed in dealing with the sale of our property on North road, Eastwood. We were extremely pleased with the organisation of the campaign, from initial discussions, to marketing, open houses, support and of course the final result that Michael and his team were able to achieve. The result exceeded our expectations. The communication by the McGrath team during this whole process was first rate. They are still in regular contact with us while we look for a new property. I would highly recommend Michael and Chris to anyone thinking of selling their property. Their work ethic is second to none and they always remain dedicated to helping us achieve the best possible outcome.
Gene and Katy Donoghue | 157 North Road
We would like to thank you and the McGrath team for the great result you achieved for our family. The sale of one’s family home is an emotional time and we were not looking forward to the stress that can come with the process. We chose Michael over other agents as you appeared professional and offered a comprehensive communications plan. From the onset we had confidence we were in the right hands and have no hesitation in recommending yourself and your dedicated sales and admin team to others who value professionalism, honesty and integrity. We believe that your commitment and dedication to us as clients has been unsurpassed. Your focus on the end result was beyond question and your motivating advice and detailed reporting was appreciated more than most realise.
