From the moment we viewed the property right through to settlement, Claude and Hayley provided a fantastic, friendly and professional service. We requested a private viewing prior to the scheduled home open which Claude kindly organised.
As we were first home buyers and unsure of the process Hayley kindly guided us through, ensuring that all deadlines were met and always kept us informed.
Michael and I can honestly say that Claude and Hayley made the whole process enjoyable and painless and we would definitely have no hesitating in using or recommending them in the future. (Jillian and Michael - Buyers)

Claude was very knowlegeable about the suburb, having grown up there locally. He had a friendly, relaxed manner and was timely and honest in dealing with us as the buyers, which was appreciated. I think he got a good result for all parties.

All in all, their involvement made the buying experience easier and more enjoyable for us! (Oliver & Tomasz - Buyers)

Completely happy with the whole process and the result . I would rate him very highly. (Louise - Seller)
Tough Cookie! Claude was representing the vendor and I can say that he held the vendors interest at the forefront of his negotiations at all times.

I would just like to thank both Claude and Hayley for the excellent job of finding our "new" house in Perth. We had a fairly specific area and type of property that we were looking for and Claude worked hard in the background to find exactly what we were looking for. Being new to all of this we appreciated Hayley's great attention to detail and her prompt communication so that we were organised and made the sale process very smooth . Great job team!

The Claude and Hayley team; Professional, Efficient, Effective.
Claude outlined his strategy, suggested presentation upgrades and listed the property. Upgrades were arranged and completed within a week.

Our congratulations and thanks go to Claude and Hayley. (Terry & Edel - Sellers)

Claude is a fabulous agent! We have nothing but praise for the professional assistance and service Claude delivered in negotiations for our new home. We would highly recommend Claude to anyone. (Joel and Andrea - Buyers)
In a very difficult market for selling apartments, Claude and Hayley never showed signs of despair. With bright smiles and encouraging words they stuck at the task and finally prevailed. I purchased my Northbridge apartment through Claude in 2004 and had no hesitation in commissioning him to sell it in 2017. The selling price was the best that could have been achieved in the existing market conditions (outliers excluded). Many thanks Claude and Hayley. (Ron - Seller)
Having purchased a property via Claude previously, I had no hesitation in instructing him to sell this particular property. I witnessed first hand how much he worked for the buyer with my purchase, and I thought that he did the same for me when I was on the other end, as the vendor. Hayley was fantastic as well. She kept an open line of communication, and maintained a very positive attitude, especially considering the current state of the market. (Michael - Seller)
Claude is a good agent, with an understanding of the local market (Dianne and Rick - Sellers)

Professional agents from whom to purchase
Claude and his Business Partner (Hayley Spagnolo) were a pleasure to deal with during the purchase of our new home. Right from the first public, and second private inspections; to supplying further information; submitting an offer and through the settlement process, we found both Claude and Hayley to be very professional. They were both very helpful and always answered any query or request quickly and accurately. They were very pro-active during the Settlement process, attending to their part and keeping us informed throughout. It was a pleasure to deal with both Claude and Hayley and we couldn't recommend them highly enough (we even scored a nice "welcome/congratulations" goodie bag when we picked up the keys - a bottle of champagne and some assorted nibbles) - Richard and Kerry (Buyers)
Claude has excellent knowledge of the Northbridge area. When the time came to sell our property we chose Claude after dealing with him many years ago. He remembered us buying our property from him and provided some expert knowledge on the market. Claude's support team respond fast to queries and will keep you well informed. - Elaine Lei (Seller)
I found Claude and his team (Hayley and also formerly Amy) very approachable and his knowledge of the market was realistic, which is very important in these times. We were certainly on the same wavelength and the communication was excellent! - Christine Marwood (Seller)
Claude came into the selling process after it commenced. I felt much more comfortable when he took over and appreciated the advice given. I think he quickly appreciated how I was going to relate to the process (very hands off) and helped considerably through the process. He was definite in his advice which I appreciated and was prepared to spend some money to present the sale. This advice was also helpful as it may well not have worked without this. We eventually got a very good price which was I am sure a lot to do with how we presented the unit for sale.- Geoff Brayshaw (Seller)
Dealt with Claude only in the beginning, however most of the communication was with Hayley his Business Partner who is a wonderful cheery person and I have high recommendations for her - Michael Lipari (Buyer)
A true professional with great expertise and always up to date with the market . Total package, great skills, honest and hassle free every time!! - Paul Cherry (Seller)
Claude and his team were very professional and did all they could to make our transaction run smoothly. The sale was stress free and we are very happy with the result. Chris and Ray
Claude got the asking price exactly right for our property. The result was a quick sale (three days on the market) and multiple competing offers. Couldn't be happier with the result or the service provided by Claude and his team. Matthew and Helen Baxter
At the start of the selling process I was quite stressed out but as soon as I met with Claude I knew I was doing the right thing. The whole process was so stress free and the outcome that Claude achieved for me was Better that I could have imagined. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to sell their home. Edgar Cooper
Claude managed what we thought to be the impossible. He guided us through the highs and lows of snaffling our dream house with a caring hands-on approach. He even put the bins out for us before we moved in. He was prepared to step out of the box when the purchase developed a few matter of course hiccups, and his knowledge and advice along the way were solid and insightful. His team was also beyond fault and presented us with a gourmet gift pack when we picked up the keys. That is a touch of class. I could not speak more highly Claude and his team. I am confident we would not be where we are now without them. Thanks again Claude and Co. See you around the city. John & Daniel
Claude and his team at Abel McGrath Leederville were fantastic from the start to handing over keys. Professional, responsive to all queries and requests and very friendly at all times. Thanks, Claude! Katie Feutrill
We would highly recommend Claude for the sale of a home. We believe that Claude helped us achieve a quick sale in a difficult market. Claude's local knowledge of the Northbridge/North Perth/Perth area brings extensive credibility and market understanding. Rebecca Perrett
Despite what was probably an over-enthusiastic initial asking price in a very difficult market, I very much appreciated Claude's energy and enthusiasm to keep going and keep focused. Claude & Amy were always helpful and professional and ultimately achieved a good result; hence my very high ratings. Ian Merker
Stressed about selling the house as I was the trustee. Claude came along to help me and it all worked out for the best. Thanks for the support. Daniel Gentili
Great service, knew the area and the current market very well. Effectively managed our expectations and achieved good result given the current market conditions. Tom and Belinda French
Claude successfully sold our house in a tough market with added hindrance of neglectful tenants. Claude's service was above and beyond checking in with the tenants arranging cleaning and helping present our home in the best light under a hard situation with tenants which where neglecting the house and clearly making it hard for a sale to occur. He did a great job and made not only the sale a breeze but helped with the settlement too. Exceptional service. Paula and Simon Durrant
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Claude Iaconi and Amy Sangster at Abel McGrath for the purchase or sale of your home. From start to finish the process was smooth thanks to their clear and reliable communication skills, local knowledge and attention to detail. Many thanks to them! Philip and Vanessa Gostelow
We couldn't be happier with Claude and Amy - helpful always going the extra mile. Would recommend any time. Kylee and Adrian Fratelle
Claude and Amy were great. From the initial appraisal Claude provided a very thorough understanding of the sale process and market conditions generally. Then the marketing, home open and offer were handled professionally. I would certainly recommend Claude and his team and use their services again. Daniel Lees
From a buyer's perspective, I found Claude to be a refreshing change from your typical pushy salesman-type real estate agent. Claude had the best interests of both the buyer and seller at heart and that made the buying process pan out smoothly and without any stress. Claude also knew the area well and offered helpful advice on what to look out for when purchasing a home. Michael Washbourne
Very helpful and professional team who deliver above and beyond in their service. Bought my property from Claude and was happy to sell it through him again 11 years later. Thank you! Kat Yip
Claude gave me some good advice back in Sept/October 2015 to sell up and get out of the market. Unfortunately due to personal circumstances I couldn't do so at that time. He encouraged me again in February 2016 and I am glad I followed his advice. He managed to find me a cash buyer through his list of previous clientele and the process from that point forward was smooth...and obviously meant to be! I am so glad I sold when I did as it has enabled me to move on to a new and exciting lifestyle and project. Elaine Reynolds
Sold within 13 days – happy days!
I had my beloved West Perth home on the market with Claude from Abel McGrath and after only 2 viewings the house was SOLD! Claude's commitment and dedication was unsurpassed and his focus on the end result was beyond question. I had the added pressure of having a subject sale offer on another property and Claude's persistence, communication and professionalism meant I secured my new home in a very quick time frame! In a very difficult market, I was astounded with the amazing result and was extremely pleased with Claude's attentiveness, communication and advice throughout the whole process. I have no hesitation in recommending Claude for the sale of your home. Amy Hudson
Morning Claude and Amy,
From start to finish selling Houston Avenue was straightforward. You both made its sale through Abel McGrath was a very positive and seamless experience, thank you very much.
Amy, a special thank you too you for managing the settlement process for me including negotiating the tradies, settlement agents, buyer and owner. Your assistance through that process was priceless and enabled the original settlement date to be adhered too, for which I am truly grateful.
I will certainly be using Abel McGrath again for my next real estate transaction and would not hesitate recommending your partnership to others.
