Best Real Estate Agent in Summer Hill - I’ve both bought and sold through Harris Tripp for 3 properties. Most recently, I’ve sold my property in Summer Hill to move North and it was a clear decision to have Harris Tripp represent us due to successful and consistently good past experiences. Michael, is an experienced and supportive agent and just a great person to engage with to sell and sell well! I cannot recommend him high enough! Our selling process was seamless, Michael was always a phone call away to offer advice and ensure both us, as the sellers, and potential buyers were supported and informed. Big thanks to the team at Harris Tripp.

Excellent Agent - Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
I recently worked with Michael to sell my home in Dulwich Hill. Michael was great to work with. He was always professional and courteous, and his knowledge of local sales and sales activity was accurate and extensive as was his connection to local buyers. He was across all the details in preparing the property for sale, was on time to every meeting and quick to respond to any communication. He achieved an outstanding sales result, and I would have no hesitation in recommending.
I have searched for my perfect home for many months and found it difficult to like any of the properties that I had seen. I had met Michael at a couple of open homes and he was always very helpful. After the first meeting, I was added to the Harris Tripp mailing list. Many properties popped up in my inbox and eventually I saw 4 apartments that really appealed to me. I missed 1 open and joined Michael at the other 3. Michael explained, in great detail, the pros and cons of each property and the area. I was undecided between 2 properties but Michael helped me decide on just one. It was going to auction 3 weeks after. At the second opening of the property I had selected I asked Michael what it would take to secure the property and take it off the market. Michael used his extensive knowledge of how the business operates, contacted the vendors and by the end of that same day the vendors and myself had exchanged contracts at the agreed price. Michael continued to communicate with me on issues relating to the strata report, making a final deposit and timeframe for settlement. Always friendly and courteous and I'm sure if he was frustrated with my stuffing around, it never showed.
I have purchased a couple of properties before, I must say, although many years ago but the agents that I dealt with were abrupt and dismissive. Not Michael. At all times, a true professional with great communication skills, tremendous industry knowledge and a courteous friendly manner at all times.
I have no hesitation in recommending Michael and his team to any prospective purchaser or seller. You won't be disappointed, I'm sure.

My wife and I recently purchased an apartment in the flour mill development at Summer Hill. I am relieved to say that we had a good experience and the agent - Michael Poynting from Harris Tripp - was very professional and courteous. There was never any hard sell, rather we got helpful advice on the strata scheme (through referral to a current committee member) and referral to mortgage broker when our proposed lender was taking their time in giving finance approval.
Michael was very prompt in responding to our queries, and was very sharp and helpful in negotiating mutually beneficial changes to the contract with the vendor.
But it was also his attention to details and apparent little things that gave an insight into Michael's professionalism. Like ending a text message with 'Thank you'.
Our dealings with Michael and Harris Tripp have been excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael to anyone needing real estate services.

Michael was unwavering in his commitment to sell the property. He was a calm, professional and persistent. Throughout the campaign I was kept updated and provided recommendations from his experience.
Above all he was pleasant and easy to deal with. Dealing with agents previously Michael brings an honest and trusting approach. Highly recommended.
