"I have recently had the pleasure of dealing with Krystal Kolnik, and I wanted to write a proper thank you/commendation, as I feel that excellent service needs to be acknowledged.

My wife and I bought our first house 6 years ago, and Krystal was the agent, so when we decided to sell our house, we looked no further than Krystal.

As a family we had made the decision to consolidate properties with both sets of our parents, and so we approached Krystal to help us with the massive task of selling our three existing properties.

Almost immediately we found our perfect property, so went ahead and put in our offer, subject to the sale of our 3 existing properties selling first - which we found was no easy task, but one that was expertly handled by Krystal (and our conveyancer Madelein Wohler)

Within 2 weeks of the properties being marketed online, ALL 3 were sold, and for prices very close to our asking price.

Our sales where not without  hurdles, as we had to obtain a order of curatorship for my father, as well as various certificates for properties that needed to be found, but through the whole process, Krystal was always very present, and willing to help in any way possible.

Today we are in our dream home, and it is in a very large part due to Krystal's friendly, efficient, professional assistance.

I have no hesitation in recommending her to friends and family." - Ryan Best 28 June 2017

" I have had the pleasure of working with Lolly, Shelley and Kate over the last couple of months firstly with my purchase of my new home and currently for the sale of my flat. 

On both occasions it has been an absolute pleasure dealing with all/any 1 of the above 3 agents. Having had a previous bad experience with an estate agent Lolly, Shelley and Kate have restored my faith that there are some good ones out there. 

All our dealings have been professional, friendly and excellent service always afforded me. The efficient manner in which they have dealt with me as both buyer and seller has made both transactions smooth and painless. 

What lovely ladies - it has been a pleasure dealing with all. It has been a good experience doing business with Jawitz properties and I shall recommend Jawitz(especially Lolly, Shelley and Kate) to friends Once again thank you for these lovely ladies" -  Karin 15 Nov 2016

"Hi Harold,

Hope you and Michelle are well. I want to give you and Jawitz Southern Peninsula a big thanks and compliment for outstanding service.

As you know, Mary-Anne and Eulalie Austin have recently marketed and successfully sold my Sun Valley house in very quick time.    There was a fair bit of renovation to complete before the sale could be finalised and here Eulalie has been absolutely terrific in going the extra mile by liaising with the renovator, calmly dealing with the buyer and keeping me informed all the way.

As a client, I personally value communication as of prime importance and all of your people, office staff included, are top notch in this regard. You have also chosen excellent attorneys to handle the transfer as Penny has also been quick to communicate.

Many thanks for the best service I have ever had from any real estate agency! "  - Tony Coates 1 September 2016

"Dear Trudi

 I want to thank you for the most amazing experience and service in selling our house. Right from the start you established yourself apart from the other agents when we asked you for a valuation.  We knew our house was different and it needed someone special who would take a real interest.  We approached a few agents, including yourself to get an indicative value.  

Whilst the other agents merely took the surrounding properties and an average of the area prices and gave a value. You took the property, recognised that it was different and started researching the sales of "different" properties in the area and then came up with a valuation figure which exceeded the other agent valuations by R1 million. The question for us was whether you were just trying to get our business by increasing the value but you backed up your position with facts and figures and we felt very comfortable with your approach.  We then took a further year to "get our property ready for sale". You patiently stood by us during this time, answered our questions, popped around from time to time when we needed some advice.  We also had to give you an exclusive mandate which we recognised that you needed in order to be able to do your work and get the price we all wanted. Then came the time to put the property on the market. At this point, much to our amazement, you came to us and said, we should increase the selling price by R1.4 million.  You had been watching the market. Of course we were not sure whether the house was anywhere near this value. You did your part in terms of preparing the house for photo's, online advertising, built up interest in the property etc The first show house week-end arrived and a number of people came through the house. On the Monday morning after the first show house, you contacted us with an offer of R20,000 above the asking price from a reputable buyer. We accepted and sold our house.

Trudi we have never experienced such service and it made the sale of our house a truly amazing experience.  We want to thank you so much and we give you our highest recommendation." - Jeneen Galbraith  10 June 2016

" It's not often I find myself writing about the experience I have received from someone when dealing with them (as one would expect to receive good  service), but the service I received from Krystal Kolnick was over and above what I expected.

Being a single woman, I was apprehensive about placing the sale of my  house with just anyone. I recalled the pleasant service I received  from Krystal a few years back when I was looking to buy a house, and although i didn't buy that house from Krystal, her approach to me made me sought her out to help me sell my own home. 

Krystal immediately made me feel at ease and was sensitive to the fact I was reluctantly selling my house due to relocating for work. The photographs taken for advertising my property were exceptional and I think had a huge impact as my house was only on the market for a week.  Throughout the whole process, Krystal kept me up to date, and made sure the whole process was hassle-free. I couldn't have asked for a better agent. 

A Big Thank You to Krystal and I can sincerely recommend her services and that of Jawitz. "

" Thank you Paulianna for your incredible service.

From day one you always went the extra mile. Your kind, caring approach always made my day a little brighter. From the first few weeks looking at properties right through to the sale, you made the experience an absolute breeze.

Thank you for taking the time to understand my likes and needs. I am so happy in my new home! If I ever sell or buy in your area again, you'll be the first person I call.

Thank you for everything! " - Cassie Zamparini (New home-owner in Fairland)  16 May 2016

" Exactly a month to go before I finally hand over keys to the new owner of my home. 

Although the highly fraught logistics of relocating take up much time, I would like to share my experience with one of your agents-

Jawitz were not my first choice.I selected 3: one kept rescheduling appointments, so I narrowed it down to two Parkhurst "specialists'.

In each case, they arrived in a posse of two, which I found vaguely annoying.I nevertheless signed a sole mandate with one and encountered a strange phenomenon.After a couple of months I found that I was trying to market my own house to them.I was constantly reminded that my house was on the unpopular side of the suburb, and that it would be a hurdle.I would point out the advantages of living in a quiet street and that it was a bigger than average property.The photographs of my house were unflattering to say the least and a very obvious junior was in charge of two show days over respective long weekends.We parted company amicably and by now I started asking around for suggestions.An aquaintance mentioned Shelley as she "sells every house she has on her books".His exact words.

She enthused over the charms of my house, was businesslike about instantly organising new photographs and promptly brought around a very slick brochure.She was firm about show day protocol and how I must not engage with viewers in case a chance remark jeopardised a possible sale.Each time she arrived for a meeting she was impeccably turned out and was never over- familiar, something that is often irritating at best.She never stopped reminding me how lovely my house was and that it was a matter of time before the perfect buyer appeared.Happened very quickly!

She suggested a conveyancer who was equally great and even shopped around as my electrician came in with an absurd quote for the compliance certificate.By now I had made an offer on a property which was accepted and my moving plans are under way.

I highly recommend her services and hope you hang on to her! " - Belinda Leontsinis  6 May 2016
