We would like to take this opportunity to again thank Marianne and her fabulous Meridien Team for their extreme professionalism, commitment and outstanding service during the sale of our family home of 17 years! 

We have always kept a keen eye on the market and have always considered Marianne to be the best in the area. Well, we were correct! 

From the moment Marianne walked into our home, we felt an instant rapport with her. Marianne is straightforward, honest, ultimately professional and extremely experienced, PLUS she has a warm maternal nature and a fantastic sense of humour! The perfect mix of qualities for the perfect agent for us, we trusted her implicitly and she was AMAZING!!! 

Our whole experience with Meridien was FANTASTIC! It wasn’t just about the sale, which was remarkable – obtaining the Highlands Estate Record with just 2 Open Homes & 2 inspections, achieving the price we wanted PLUS the delayed settlement we requested - it was also things like engaging a professional stylist to provide that extra “wow factor” (Jeanine Michel from The Styling House was fabulous!), giving advice on when best to sell, and creating an exceptional marketing campaign with brilliant photography, video link, beautiful signage and the all-important descriptive narrative about our home – highlighting all its features, creating that crucial interest for potential purchasers to come and see it for themselves! We would also like to mention that one of us is a perfectionist and a control freak (Sharyn) so it is sometimes difficult to hand things over, ESPECIALLY something as important as selling our family home. 

So, we would like to also say a HUGE thank you to Alexandra (Meridien’s Marketing Manager of 16 years!). Alexandra’s professionalism, attention to detail, efficiency and experience whilst coordinating our entire marketing campaign were second to none!  Any little tweak or change Sharyn wanted to make, was always met with patience and a “of course, that’s no problem” attitude – which we valued and appreciated so much through this whole experience! Marianne and the Meridien Team were truly AMAZING and exceeded all of our expectations.  It was a wonderful experience and there is no one else we would list our home with! 

Best wishes always,

Mark & Sharyn Latham-Callcott.

After consultation with many of the leading estate agents in our area, we chose James Holvander from First Meridien Realty to market and sell our home. James stood above the rest with his knowledge of the area, professionalism, diligence and courtesy.

During the sale period James organised open homes & private inspections that were always arranged around convenience for us. At all inspections James was present which meant he was aware of all interested parties and could follow them up directly. We were kept up to date with informative feedback provided by James directly. James was consistently available to us even though our sale transitioned through the Christmas New Year period. The sale was handled with complete competency by James which allowed us to remain calm and stress free during the 3 week period it took James to secure a purchaser at a price we were very pleased with.

The contact we had with James and the extended Meridien team was always courteous, helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble. My wife and I would certainly recommend James Holvander to anyone considering selling their home.

Dear Marianne and James,

We would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your services with regards to selling our property at 14 Harry Gilbank Way Kellyville. After initially listing our property with alternative agents and being frustrated with the lack of progress and enthusiasm, we took charge of our situation and contacted you – and the rest as they say is history as the results speak for themselves.

Your selling process commenced with an assessment of how to best represent our house to the market, this provided us with a strong level of comfort that we were dealing with high skilled professionals something that was drastically missing prior to engaging First Meridien. It was a truly comforting experience to have you as our sales agent! Your extensive knowledge of the Hills’ District market and in people made the entire sales situation a breeze. We also appreciated the wonderful online advertising and your neutral, calm and professional approach to both parties.

We would certainly not hesitate to recommend you to others we know wishing to sell or to buy in the area.

Yours truly,

Allan and Diana Tagliaferro

We would like to thank Marianne and the team at First Meridien Realty for selling our house in record time. We never thought it would sell so quickly and looking back, it was a whirlwind of activity that now feels like it was over before it had really begun. The whole experience went through without a hitch and this was because Marianne kept in touch with us throughout the months leading up to when we were ready to put the house on the market, through the preparation and show day. She provided us with constant updates, guidance, reassurances and when the time came for her team to come in they had the same amount of enthusiasm, professionalism, integrity and passion. 

We would have no hesitation recommending First Meridien or Marianne to anybody looking to buy or sell property in the Hills District. 

Thank you once again.

Marianne has sold multiple places for my entire family, both my brothers and my parents, and finally after making the mistake of going with different agencies we made the RIGHT choice and called Marianne to come and sell our home 

She was flawless, caring, honest and loyal.  Fantastic at communication and answered all my questions and within 10 days and after only 1 open home Marianne got us a sale for our asking price.

We will use her again and seek her advice when building our next home.  She makes us feel like family, very warm and caring.  We love her, she is amazing at what she does and she plays no games which I love.

Don’t waste your time getting enquiries from other agents, just go straight to First Meridien, they will not disappoint.

We highly recommend James, Alexandra and their team. They were polite, helpful, professional and friendly. They were efficient and reliable. Their knowledge of the North West was outstanding. Their service and communication skills made selling our home an extremely pleasant process. They sold our home in 9 days and we couldn’t be happier. 

Thank you James and First Meridien.

Dear Marianne and James

I would like to thank you for your efforts regarding the sale of my house in Castle Hill. It was a pleasure to deal with you as well as your staff. You were always professional, friendly, helpful, ready to share your knowledge, well organised, punctual and available.

I shall recommend you to anybody selling a property and wish you every success in the future.

First Meridien advised and organised making our investment property more presentable for showing, mainly tiding up from the front garden and making sure the interior sparkled.

They had two showings which attracted a total of 18 prospects.  Marianne then presented us with a signed contract at a top price after only ten days on the market.

What more could you ask of an agent?

When Lesley and I decided to sell our single storey Masterton Home in Kellyville being around 10 years old we obtained three property appraisals from local real estate agents and after some deliberation we decided to go with Marianne of First Meridien Realty as they have a branch at Castle Hill and Rouse Hill. We have noticed they sell a large number of properties in the Hills District.

We were introduced to Marianne initially when we originally were negotiating in the marketing and the selling process and James became involved in the open house presentation and the negotiating of the sale. Our house was sold within two weeks of being on the market. We are so pleased that we went with Marianne and her team at First Meridien Realty with our great result we have recommended Meridien to a friend around the corner and it now appears Marianne has been successful in selling their house.

Again thank you for all your teams hard work in achieving our great result.

I am writing to share the nothing short of phenomenal experience that we have had in selling our home with James and Alexandra from First Meridien Realty. From our first meeting to the close of sale the couple exceeded all our expectations on all related levels. I have bought and sold several properties in the past and during these processes have never had the level of professionalism that we have experienced from this couple. Their absolute passion for this industry and strong ethics was evident and delivered on every facet of the process. From the initial consultation we felt we were provided with up to date data about the property market and invaluable consultation in preparing our home for the sale. The marketing they provided as part of their service was exceptional particularly the quality of video and photographs, their experience took the home to another level showcasing it at its best. Their strategic approach to market the property executed a burst of interest in the property resulting in a record sale within two weeks. They were both in consistent daily communication with us during this period giving us feedback and updating us at every development. Their honesty, integrity, commitment and drive is faultless and we cannot recommend this 'power couple' enough if you are wanting a real estate service.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Marianne and the team at Meridien for the outstanding result on the recent sale of our home.  From th first day we met Marianne it was obvious she had our best interests at heart.  In the advice she gave and her knowledge of the property market, Marianne was both professional and caring.  She is a lovely, warm person to work with.  Marianne was always available to talk to - even on her day off nothing was a problem.  Marianne worked very hard to achieve a great outcome that was above our expectation.  We were ecstatic at the result and would highly recommend Marianne as an agent if you are selling and want someone who genuinely takes delight in getting you the best price.

In the stressful environment of selling and relocation the best decision we made was in choosing Marianne and the team at Meridien as our agents.

Once again thank you,

Philip and Christine Moran

Emotions often run high, when decisions are put into action, placing your home on the open market. Memories and attachments are running high and when you have chose a trustworthy Real Estate Agent with your most valuable asset in life, the associated anxiety can be quickly removed. That was our experience, even though we had not known James Holvander beforehand. It was bitter sweet having decided to move into a Retirement Village, but all through the process James and all the team at First Meridien were always available, either by person, phone, emailing or texting. They really looked after our interests in all areas associated with the selling process and left us feeling very happy with the end result.

Our sincerest thanks to all the team and of course to Marianne and James. You are most recommend above and beyond the norm and we do qualify having both bought and sold through the family based agency.

Thank you all.

Dear James and Alexandra,

What can we say and where do we start!  Wow Wow Wow.

Having lived in Rouse Hill for 16 years we obviously knew of First Meridien and had heard of your achievements. We’d seen many testimonials and received flyers in the mail and guess what? They are all true!

You are amazing, a credit to the Real Estate Industry and to work with you in the selling process was just effortless.

There was never a moment to doubt neither your professionalism nor you confidence in achieving a top sale for our property. Every phone call or email was answered if not immediately, but with a very short time frame.

Our entire experience in selling our home with you was flawless. You made us feel like part of your family and we felt you treated our home like it was your own.

2 Open homes and we had multiple offers. You achieved a result well above our expectations not to mention a new street record! In fact it wasn’t until we actually got the letter from you that the actual figure started to sink in.

We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone wishing to sell their home, in fact we would find it hard to understand why anyone would want to sign with any other agent.

All the best

Thank you Marianne and the team at First Meridian for doing such a wonderful job selling my house. Your assistance with preparing the house for sale was just fantastic and I really appreciate that you always kept me up to date on what was happening with the sale. You and your team were always courteous, available and keen to help, making the whole process much easier than I imagined it would be.


Thanks again.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Marianne and the team at Meridien for selling our home in a record time of 6 days.

All were very professional throughout the process, had excellent knowledge of the local area, were easy to communicate with, and kept us informed every step of the way.

We would highly recommend Meridien Rouse Hill to our family, friends and anyone that is looking for an honest, informed and reliable agent.

Dear Alexandra and James,

To all your potential and future clients I would say this:

It’s become a bit of a running joke in our family, you know how it goes… How do you please a perfectionist and an engineer? You trust Alexandra and James from First Meridien Realty.

And while that sounds like a bit of a gag, it has turned out to be entirely accurate.

We asked 7 agencies through our house, each time we were left feeling unsure. There was something missing… Our first impressions of James and Alexandra were outstanding. Professional, polished and completely capable, it was a welcome relief. We met two outstanding agents who were accomplished, told us the real deal and never gave us spin or hype about our house. Once we had spent some time with James and Alexandra, we knew we were in good hands. It was unanimous. Decision made.

That said, it’s a hard thing, giving your house to an agency to sell. It requires trust, a strong sense of direction, and shared outcomes. Never were we in doubt about where we stood, at every step of the way. Clear communication, completely transparent feedback and really honest styling advice for the house.

Now about that house… To say our house was “challenging” would be conservative. We had some stand our features, and also some fairly obvious down sides. As we pointed out these positive and negative features, it was clear from the get-go that First Meridien knew what they were doing. Challenging, yes. Impossible, no.

From the minute we signed our contract it was a very smooth process. They made every effort to showcase what we believe is a fantastic home. No energy was spared and we felt James and Alexandra went above and beyond for us. Signboard went up, styling complete and ready for inspection. Both agents are punctual, smiling (even on 40 degree days) and were genuinely excited about what our home had to offer.

And speaking of offers… we were stunned. Thrilled. Even had to sit down. Both Alexandra and James worked hard for us, adapting their campaign, being flexible and responsive when it was required. And it happened for us. An offer that surprised us and also made us thankful we’d picked the right people. We truly believe we did. We trusted the right people. And they came through for us. It’s as simple as that.

We would encourage all future vendors to sign with First Meridien Realty and have absolute confidence in James and Alexandra.


All our best,

The Perfectionist and the Engineer,

Gill & Nigle Quarmby

Dear Marianne and Team


Thank you so very much for helping us sell our home. To say the least, the timing could not have come at a more busy time in our lives, yet with your guidance and unwavering support we were able to sell our home at a wonderful price within 4 weeks.


Honesty and integrity are the words that come to mind when I think of your team. Passion, commitment and hard work are the words you personify Marianne and these are the very characteristics that we saw in you when we first met, and kept seeing till the very end.


You’re an authentic and genuine person, the part about being a talented real estate agent was just a bonus. It was a pleasure to deal with you every time.We have not only walked away with a record sale, but more importantly a friend! We can never thank you enough.

Marianne is a phenomenal agent, and one that we highly recommend.If you’re looking for an agent that will work hard for you and truly do everything possible to make your deal work, then Marianne is the person you want to talk to. We were so pleased with her attitude, she truly has the best interest of her clients in mind.We also admire the dedication of her team, they all get things done in a quick and efficient way. It was a great experience working with Marianne and the whole Meridien team.”
- Sheryl and Marlon Paycana

“We found Meridien because their billboards of sold homes are everywhere. When I made an enquiry through their website, I got a call from Marianne straight away. She went to our house the following day to discuss the process and once you meet her you will not want to put your business in anyone else’s hands. We also love working with the whole team, they were all responsive and easy to work with. They were there for us, at every point, at any time. Even after our home got sold, they were still there to assist us with getting a new home and they are still as enthusiastic as ever. We couldn’t have asked for a better and smoother process. We highly recommend working with Marianne and her team at Meridien.”

We first met James & Alexandra when we purchased our investment property through them at First Meridien Realty in early 2013. We were new in the property market in the Hills District then. Our first impression dealing with them was excellent. Not only they were very professional and resourceful in the local real estate market, they were always very passionate, thorough in explaining and keeping us informed throughout the process. We were very impressed with their commitment, professionalism, attention to detail, sound knowledge and advice they have rendered.

When the time came to sell, we did not think twice about engaging James & Alexandra at First Meridien. During the sales process, James & Alexandra were highly committed in delivering their service which is fi rst class.
They kept us informed of every step in the sales process with updates on marketing, sale negotiations, and constructive feedback. They managed to sell our property in a short space of time with the sale price achieved well above our expectation. This did not come as a coincidence but through their sheer commitment, experience and professionalism which are clearly evident. Once again, they have delivered an excellent result for which we
are really grateful and delighted with.

We would highly recommend First Meridien Realty to our family, friends and anyone seeking to buy and sell the property in the Hills District. James & Alexandra, it has been a great pleasure dealing with you on both
transactions. Thank you very much for all your great work. Your commitment to deliver an exceptional result in the seamless sales process is second to none! We look forward to dealing with you again in the near future.

Just Sold in 3 days!

Harry and I would like to take this opportunity to thank both James and Alexandra for their special effort in selling our great mansion. Ultimately our decision to go with First Meridien was the best!  All happened so fast, just in 2 days we had offers coming in. They were constantly in touch with us, sometimes till very late evening.  It was Sunday morning and James’ birthday too; when both personally came to our home to give us the excellent news.  We were just overwhelmed and speechless at the result, and by the next open house, we had the SOLD sticker. Their commitment to getting the job done in a professional and courteous manner is commendable. We definitely would like to recommend anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Dear James and Alexandra

What can we say but WOW!! Oh my God!! What a fantastic result.

SOLD at a price way beyond our expectations. We thank you for achieving such an outstanding result on the sale of our house in just 3 days. We met with a couple of other local agents prior to meeting with James and Alexandra but none gave us the confidence and relaxed comforting feeling projected by James and Alexandra.

The marketing approach was excellent especially the video which really showed off our home to its maximum. We can highly recommend James and Alexandra as we know they will work to get the very best result for you.

Thank you so very much.

Outstanding service

We had seen a lot of First Meridien signs in our area, and the properties had sold within a short period of time.  After meeting with both Alexandra and James we were impressed with their enthusiastic and professional approach. During our first meeting with them they didn't push us into making a decision to go with them. They kindly came back for another meeting and gave us time to ask and explain the selling process in detail.

We had a twilight viewing during the week and after the first Saturday viewing James had the property sold. The price achieved was excellent and we are very grateful for the team at First Meridien who made it happen and in such a short time of being on the market. James, Alexandra and all the staff at First Meridien have done a superb job for us, we are delighted with the result and the experience overall was great. We have no hesitation at all in recommending James and Alexandra.

When it came to selecting a real estate agency to sell our property I organised one full day to interview six agencies with the best sales results in Kellyville over the past 3 months. James and Alexandra impressed me straight away. They didn't make promises to secure my business or try and discount their professional fees or marketing costs. What they did say resonated with me.

Still it was not an easy decision to make. In the end I chose First Meridien because their sales spoke for themselves. Many of the recent sales for comparable properties in Kellyville were made by them.

Upon selecting James and Alexandra to sell our home they were quick to action. They walked us through the home advising us on styling tips to maximise the effect for the promotional photography and video. The end result for both the internet and paper advertisements were spectacular. The response was fast with phone enquiries almost straight away. They clearly knew the importance of marketing to make the best impression on the market.

On the weekend of the first open home James was in regular contact with updates on the sale negotiation. The final sale price was well above our expectations.

I have no doubts what so ever that James and Alexandra got the best possible price for our property. Not only would I not hesitate in using them again I have already recommended them to several family members in the Hills area.

Thanks and Regards,

You and your team did a wonderful marketing campaign for our property. The home sold within a week of presentation.

We would like to thank you for introducing such happy and delighted buyers and we know our beautiful home will be occupied by a family who will love it as much as we have.

Thank you for your service which was above and beyond our expectations. Your advice, attitude and communication skills are why you are consistently number one!!!

Dear James & Alexandra;

First and foremost, a huge heart felt "Thank You"......

I can't imagine there being a more efficient, honest, sincere and thoughtful pairing of two Agents; who not only clearly understand the Real Estate Market but who also have a genuine love for what they do.

Thank you, for coming into our home and helping us to enhance our property inside and out. The thorough and meticulous initial appraisal based on a very "no bull" attitude and abundance of Real Estate knowledge was refreshing. It was most impressive to have two people who don't just whip out internet picture print outs and sales histories on previously sold properties; by only God knows who?!

Thanks to your Superior Marketing Strategies and hard networking you produced a bevy of serious buyers, our very first Open Home saw an amazing 38 couples/families walk through.

No sooner had you waved goodbye to the last couple at our Open Home, several serious offers just effortlessly flowed through, thanks to your very successful method of showcasing and hard work. Immediately you worked tirelessly day and night negotiating these offers, keeping us updated and never left any buyers hanging.

Between the two of you, there was ALWAYS someone available whenever we needed you, always delivered, always on time and very accommodating; which we were particularly grateful for with our unpredictable routine of raising a young family.

Problems? What problems? If there were any; we certainly didn't know because you had our backs from beginning to end!

The word is out there and the gossip in the Hills District is true.... The best team around.... Ready, Steady, SOLD & thanks for coming! No wonder the two of you are ranked No. 1 Agents.

If anyone, regardless of their predicament is looking to sell their home, WE DARE YOU to trust your most valuable asset to anyone but James & Alexandra of First Meridien Realty.

All the very best to you both, what a wonderful and most memorable experience this has been for our family, you have given us a great start in our new home.

Matthew & Roberta Lucarnus.

Our love affair with First Meridien Realty...

Our dearest Marianne, We had the absolute pleasure of having you sell our home in September this year. You had already walked your way into our hearts when, with your steadfast determination and perseverance, you helped us achieve our dream home a few weeks earlier. At our very first meeting, we felt very positive and confident that we could entrust our house in your hands and that you would get the job done better than anyone else. Moreover, your expertise and knowledge outshone the other real estate agents we had appraisals with. You were always punctual, always reliable and were an excellent communicator, available any time we needed you. From the start, all members of your sales team were courteous and professional at all times and they made us feel at ease throughout the process of getting our house up on the market for everyone to see. We were always kept in the loop. Your retention of information from viewers at our open houses was first class and always articulated very well. Your energy and enthusiasm paid off handsomely for us in the end, after just two open homes! It was all conceived and carried through with flair and consummate professionalism. For that we would like to formally say thank you very much Marianne and your wonderful team at First Meridien Realty for your diligent attention to the sale of our home. We were very pleased with the selling campaign, the photographs, the advertising and of course the eventual result. You have earned a flawless reputation by your amazing work ethic. We would recommend you to anyone without reservations and if in the future decide to sell our home, we would come to you again without hesitation. Thank you for all the guidance, advice and support. We would like to wish you all the very best for the future. You are always welcome to visit us at our new residence and have coffee with us one day when you are free! With love, Rowena & Ranjith Furtado

Friendly, genuine yet professional...


There wasn't any decision to chose Marianne and her team to help me sell my home. Her friendly, genuine yet professional manner has always been her trademark. I bought this house eleven years ago through Marianne and remember her as an outstanding agent. As a business owner, you recognise character traits in people such as this. Her team back then provided her with the same support as the team she has today. This measure of consistency says a lot about First Meridien Realty as a company. As a young couple, Marianne guided us through to give us the confidence to achieve our dream home. As a seller, Marianne and her team has continued to guide us through to prepare our home for inspection which lead us to a swift sale with an excellent result. Welson Paul

As we are making a sea change, moving into retirement and having a new house built, we had plenty on our plate without the added stress of selling our house, which was a critical part of our plan. Marianne and her team’s personalised, professional and sincere approach to selling the house made it so much easier than we expected and a pleasant experience. Marianne is undoubtedly the exception to the rule when it comes to estate agents! Marianne guided us through all aspects of the house sale starting with “You English like to have too much clutter!” and so the journey started. We followed her advice to the letter in preparing the house for the photo and video shoots and the open day. We were surprised at the time and effort that went into the photos and particularly the video, which undoubtedly added value to the sales process. There was a big turnout for the Saturday open house and within the week Marianne had a signed contract at our asking price. A fantastic achievement! A big thank you also to Natalie, Ilona and Ivy for always being there for us – nothing was a problem. And Marianne – best thing we did was “go” with you.

Making plans to sell my home, I spoke to several agents from the area and was impressed with Marianne from First Meridian.

I would like to thank Marianne and the team at First Meridian and would recommend them to anyone that is selling or buying. Many thanks, Sheriden Clark

A great result and wonderful experience.

We first invited James into our home for an appraisal a number of years ago when we purchased land and were planning to sell. With James knowledge and advice we were lucky enough to be in the position to wait and thanks to James and Alexandra we recently sold our home and received a new street record. What I thought was going to be one of the most stressful times was made stress free by both James and Alexandra. Their professionalism, knowledge and easygoing nature provided beyond doubt we had chosen the best estate agents in the business. We could not speak more highly of them and what they have done for us and our family. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a Real estate agent with a little extra to offer. Thanks again James and Alexandra for everything. :-)

We have enjoyed our buying experience thanks to the work of James Holvander. He was professional, knowledgeable and made us feel at ease throughout the buying process. We would recommend James Holvander as both an agent to sell with and an agent to buy through. Thanks James for assisting us in the purchase of our new home!

Dear James & Alexandra After selling 2 family homes previously & having bad experiences with both agents we were pleasantly surprised by your professional approach to selling our home. You made a very stressful time so much easier for us. You kept us well informed & we were completely satisfied with all aspects of the process of selling our home. We are so grateful to you & would like to congratulate you on achieving a new record price for the area. We are still pinching ourselves with the result you have achieved & truly believe it's your professional approach & experience that helped us get the remarkable price in such a short time. We could not have been more pleased through the whole process of selling & would have no hesitation in recommending you both to anyone wanting to sell their property. Paul & Shayne Johnston

Dear James & Alexandra We would like to thank you both for all your hard work and effort you put in to achieve the best outcome for the sale of our home. We were very pleased with the great result.

Right from our first meeting, my wife and I felt at ease with Alexandra and James. There was no pushy sales stuff and the professional, thoughtfulness and the calm manner in which they presented themselves was very reassuring to us. After an easy discussion around presentation, positioning in the market and price, we agreed to go into this partnership. Throughout the next couple of weeks of getting our place in the best presentable style we could, both Alexandra and James took the time to turn up for the photo shoot and with both their keen eye’s, sought out those best shots to display our home. One open day, that’s all it took and our property had sold. We were extremely excited and yet nervous, but at the same time relieved that it sold in such a short time. Their honesty and openness, intricate market knowledge and personal approach is what helped us get the result that we all desired. We cannot thank Alexandra and James enough as this now allows us to move on to our next stage of our lives. 

Yours Sincerely

We contacted Meridien Realty because they were recommended by good friends and they did not disappoint. In fact you exceeded our expectations. This is the third house we have sold and we were bracing ourselves for a very stressful few weeks. How wrong we were! James & Alexandra with their professionalism and expertise guided us through the process of selling our home. They turned up for appointments with us on time and regularly kept us informed with updates from prospective buyers as they said they would, and they sold our house for a great price! Thank you James & Alexandra you are an exceptional team. Ian & Jacky Jobling

Dear James & Alexandra 

Not really sure where to start but had to pop you a note to thank you so much for assisting me on my journey to sell my home. The timing ended up not being so ideal for me in regards to a personal matter as you well know which proved to be the most difficult time of our lives for me and all my family. Your compassion, kindness and sincere caring without a doubt helped me through this very difficult period and for this I will be eternally grateful. Your remained professional but also caring, constantly keeping me informed whilst ensuring I was not overloaded with what I was capable of handling at that time. With the end of this journey not only did you manage to hold everything together on my behalf but you also managed to achieve an unbelievable result in such a short period of time, how do I ever thank you. Your commitment, professionalism and experience is a credit to you and it has been an absolute delight and pleasure to deal with you, I could not recommend you highly enough to any prospective vendors/buyers. Thank you James from the bottom of my heart for everything!

Warm regards

Dear James and Alexandra, We would like to thank you for the fantastic job you did selling our home.As first time sellers, you took the time to understand our needs and guide us through each step, helping us feel stress free and confident.Your professional friendly attitude made it very easy to place our trust in you. Not only did you achieve an amazing result for us, but you made the whole process so easy. We believe this was due to your diligence in guiding us and keeping us constantly informed.

Your attention to detail and marketing were clearly evident and we are grateful for your dedication. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who would like to entrust the sale of their home to you. On a personal level, you were not only courteous, caring and helpful, but our children took kindly to you and to us that speaks volume about your integrity.

Dear James, Firstly I want to thank you very much for your assistance with finding our new home, we are very excited and extremely happy. We had been searching for a property in the area for over two months and in that time had experienced alot of Real Estate Agents and their service but none came close to the wonderful and attentive service we received from you and the First Meridien team. Your warm and genuine interest whilst helping us find the perfect house was greatly appreciated as the whole process was at times quite daunting and stressful but with your help everything was done smoothly, efficiently and quickly. We will forever be grateful to you for helping make our dream come true. Nora Janoyan and family

I would recommend James and Alexandra to anyone selling a home. They were always on time and incredibly professional in all aspects. James and Alexandra did everything they said he would do and were an absolute delight to work with. Diane and I would like to express our deepest thank you to the Meridien team for a job very well done. Neither of us felt comfortable with having to choose a Real Estate to sell our home due to the amount of competition in the area. After talking to three other agents it was clear that Meridien would suit us the most. After the first contact we were incredibly impressed by the organisation, communication and professionalism. Our home was sold in two weeks with a record sale for the area. Diane and I could not have been happier. Thank you for everything. Best Regards, Craig and Di Hallett

To James and Alexandra, 
Andrew and I would like to express our gratitude to you both, for not only selling our home for a great price in a ‘slowing market’, but for your professionalism from start to finish. From our initial meeting to exchange of contracts and beyond, we couldn’t have asked for better service. Your selling strategy really hit the mark, top spot in, professional video, half page ad in the Hills Shire Times, all contributed to getting our home seen, and it paid off. We never thought that it could sell so quickly. I will be recommending Meridien Realty and especially team James & Alexandra to anyone looking to sell their home, if they want the best in the Hills!

From the first meeting with Marianne we believed we made the right decision to sell our Kellyville property with Meridien. Both Marianne, James and the Meridien team worked tirelessly in getting to a result which we were happy to accept. We both would like to thank Marianne and team Meridien for the experience shown during our sale process and would recommend utilizing Meridien to our family and friends.
