“We were having trouble selling our Duplex and spoke with Bernadette Berlyn Director and her team of Lang and Simmons Cronulla. After consultation and understanding the position we were in we decided to list with them. With the styling that looked amazing and up market approach to advertising a sale was achieved after three weeks. Bernadette is extremely professional and kept us informed with progress at all times.

Bernadette gets results. We would not hesitate in recommending Lang and Simmons as your sales team to sell your property.”

“As we were actively looking at the market before listing ourselves, we were very impressed with the level of professionalism and attention to detail shown by Bernadette and her team. When it came time to list our family home we were thrilled to have the Berlyn’s represent us. We found them to be proactive in every step of the process and extremely diligent in liaising all parties from preparation to the marketing campaign straight through to the sale.

We have achieved a successful outcome with the sale and would strongly recommend Bernadette and her team when considering buying or selling. It has been a privilege to align ourselves with such a wonderful agent and have enjoyed the experience of it all.”

“I’m writing to thank you for the superb experience I've had selling our house with Laing & Simmons. When I first met with Bernadette, I was very tentative about selling. After living in the house for 25 years, there was a lot of wear and tear and I was sure I’d have to renovate before selling.
Bernadette gave me practical ideas to minimise renovating. More importantly, Bernadette listened to my ‘impossible’ dream and matched us with a buyer willing to renovate. She was with me during the entire process and advised me on issues when I wasn’t sure what to do.

Bernadette, thank you so much for being supportive, calming and practical. Just what I needed.”

“I was very fortunate to have come across Bernadette, Nathan and their team. For me it was a case of Karma, as I had crossed paths some 10-12 years ago with Bernadette. But our recent meeting in July was coincidental. And once I realised who Bernadette was I felt very comfortable and confident with her that I signed my Exclusive very promptly. I should note prior to Bernadette; my property was on the market with two other agencies and had 2 unsuccessful campaigns. The difference I found with Bernadette is she is very transparent, very confident, hardworking and very experienced.

She pays a lot of attention to detail and follows up very promptly not by a phone call but a weekly meeting. She understands how people buy property and how people are busy, so she incorporates 2 Saturday Open House Times, an Evening Time during the week and is willing to show the property on Sundays. She utilises her contacts to give complete coverage of the property, I had my property on the front page of the Leader, had an editorial done as well as been on the Internet sites. Thus, the property was given a full, complete and maximum coverage.

I believe that when Bernadette takes on a property to sell, she lives and breathes that property until it is sold. I would highly recommend Bernadette and her team to any party considering selling their property without any hesitation at all.”

“John and I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank Bernadette and Nathan for the great success achieved with the sale of our Bathers apartment. Locking in a sale before auction date was certainly our goal and you managed to achieve it for us.

With two unsuccessful campaigns with other realtors over the past 18+ months, we knew we needed a different approach and strategy to achieve the right financial outcome and secure a sale amongst the other high-end apartments in the area. The decision to work with you as a team was based on your knowledge of construction and your experience and ability to negotiate, manage and closing a deal with the best financial outcome for us as the vendor.

The regular written and face to face updates certainly made us feel confident and content that you are managing the process with our best interest at heart.

We thank you for achieving this great outcome for us within ONLY a 6-week campaign!!”

"As Jenny and I move closer to settlement day we can now reflect on the professional service both of you provided over the last 6 months. We had the fortunate experience of meeting you both, with the purchase of a property in 'Highview' Miranda, your patience and guidance Nathan, was greatly appreciated. Your 'no push approach' was often a discussion point with Jenny and I, making our decision as to who should help us sell our Cronulla property much easier.

Bernadette your guidance, advice and friendship during our sale at Cronulla, have helped us through what could have been a very stressful process, you both certainly took the worry away and it all just happened, leading to a successful sale.

Our wonderful experience with Laing & Simmons Cronulla leaves us in no doubt who we'll use in the future, and who we would recommend to others.”

“We engaged the services of Bernadette Berlyn of Laing + Simmonds Cronulla after our first agent failed to sell our property after 3 months of trying. We had reached a low point as all expectations from the first agency would be a quick smooth sale - this was not the case as we later discovered that our home was not marketed as well as it could have been and our pricing not accurate.

Bernadette and her son Nathan approached the sale in an innovative way and with a clear strategy. Firstly, they believed in themselves and could explain the benefits of utilising their superior methods Secondly, the sale strategy was convincing and quite different from our previous experience and with remarkable attention to detail Thirdly, the marketing reach and the way they wanted it marketed was outstanding. We were very reluctant indeed as this approach required a little more outlay if a sale was achieved, but we trusted Bernadette - a true professional.

Following the Styling we even considered 'no sale' as the home looked superb! Then the marketing achieved what Bernadette stated - non-local prospective purchasers being attracted and soon a non-local buyer (not just relying on local potential buyers as the first agency expected).

Finally, the pricing strategy which we felt very uncomfortable with - was magically handled. I won’t go into too much detail but Bernadette was bang on with her approach. We are extremely glad we chose Bernadette Berlyn and Laing + Summons Cronulla - as we have had the most superb outcome and felt in safe hands all the way.

Thank you to Bernadette and Nathan Berlyn”

“Many real estate agents claim to “go above and beyond” but the Berlyn Group do precisely that.

We live three hours from their Cronulla office and work commitments meant we could not easily get to Sydney so Bernadette and Nathan drove to our home. When we could not get paperwork to our solicitor Bernadette drove to the city to deliver it. One potential buyer was having difficulty obtaining finance so Bernadette organized a meeting with a broker. Now we are looking at buying another property and Bernadette has offered to assist us. It is hard to imagine any other agent going to these lengths.

Our house seemed to appeal to a niche market and Bernadette was the second agent with whom the property was listed, but the Berlyn team held three open houses every week without fail (not to mention the myriad of private and repeat viewings). Bernadette’s enthusiasm and positivity never once wavered. She kept us advised and was always available to discuss concerns. She and her team are extremely professional, very knowledgeable and clearly dedicated.

We cannot recommend Bernadette and the entire Berlyn Group highly enough.”
