"After 7 years looking for a property, and experiencing some terrible real estate agents, Simon sold me my first home. I would highly recommend Simon to anyone looking at buying or selling their home. Simon was always courteous, kept me informed, talked me through the process, was prompt in responding to messages and displayed a genuine nature. He made buying my first home an absolute delight!" Kylie

He was great from start to finish and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone in the future. Thank you, Simon." Rick & Sherryn
"We’ve had a great experience with Simon Hayes. He has been working diligently during and after hours to support us. His relationship with the vendor; plus the continued pursuing of the vendor’s solicitor, made the experience much smoother and better than what it could have been. Simon’s efforts were appreciated, and we’d recommend him again without hesitation." Kurt & Louise
"A great real estate agent who worked extremely hard to get the maximum price for our property. Simon kept in close contact with me through the whole process which helped make it less stressful. I've found him to be friendly and reliable at all times." Denis & Linda
"It was a pleasure dealing with Simon, on the recent purchase of our new investment property. He was always very responsive to our questions and inquiries but very professional in the way he handled the purchase. But most of all I liked his personal approach to the negotiations - it didn't feel like just a commercial transaction for him - he was genuinely interested in helping us achieve the purchase. I would have no hesitation to recommend Simon." Josephine
"From the very first inquiry, working with Simon has been extremely professional and easy. Simon took the time to walk us through each step (we were first time sellers and had no idea) and answer our inquires. Constant and open communication turned a stressful situation into an easy one and our home was sold within 2 weeks! Such an amazing result! We couldn't recommend Simon and the team at First National Real Estate Terrigal highly enough." Jessica
"From the onset Simon was very professional and build trust with my wife and I which is the reason we chose him to represent us in the sale of our house. Throughout the process, he was informative and communicated in a non-biased way giving us all the facts and letting us make the decisions. Only when we asked, did Simon offer a point of view. All in all, a very positive experience and I would recommend him if you are selling your home." Anthony & Renee

"I would highly recommend Simon Hayes as an agent if you are looking to sell a property on the Central Coast. He worked very hard with us prior to us listing the property and due to this we felt he had earnt our business. Simon is a great communicator and negotiator. He keeps you updated with any updates or inquiries in relation to the property and gives sage advice. He is down to earth and has integrity which is a term not usually associated with real estate agents. We sold our property within 8 days of listing it and got the price we wanted. We were delighted with the service we got from Simon and would highly recommend him. Thanks very much. " Charlene
"Our first encounter with Simon was whilst we were looking for properties on the Central coast. We found him friendly, genuine and not someone who was pushy or bombastic. His approach to introducing us to our property felt extremely authentic and we found him to be helpful. Nothing seemed to be ever too much trouble for him and Simon was always easily available for meetings viewings and phone calls. Simon helped to cause us great ease with our purchase of our property and we would honestly highly recommend him." Joy & Mark
"A huge thank you goes to Simon and the whole team at First National, Terrigal for the recent sale of my house at Forresters Beach. I recently put my house on the market after a difficult time in my personal life. I met Simon when I was looking at another property and after chatting with him for a short while I knew he would be the right person to sell my home. I did not even interview or approach any other agents or offices. I knew from seeing First National sell many other houses in Forresters Beach, and after meeting Simon, that they would do a great job. Simon was honest, trustworthy, approachable and had a friendly level of professionalism, that I really liked. He kept me up to date throughout the listing and selling process and always returned my calls when I contacted him. After only four days of my house being on the market and only one open house, Simon had an offer , which was amazing! The offer was extremely reasonable and I accepted it right away. Simon made what was a difficult time in my life, easier and I really appreciate him for that. I highly recommend Simon at First National, Terrigal. If you are looking to sell your house with friendly, professional and knowledgeable agents First National would be a great choice! Thanks again Simon!" Sarah
"I was impressed by the way that Simon Hayes from First National Terrigal handled the sale of our neighbour's property and he was an obvious choice when we were ready to list our home. Simon was genuine and professional throughout the process of preparing for an auction and actually sold the property in less than three weeks! I would definitely recommend Simon and I would certainly use him again if we were buying or selling due to his integrity and results." Gail
"My husband and I had the great pleasure in purchasing a house at Wamberal earlier this month. After a six month search, we were happy, relieved and ready for our new life on the coast having moved here from Sydney’s northern beaches. First National has been fantastic throughout this whole process and in particular Simon Hayes. He was hard working, diligent and forever out to help in our search. He was always available to show us properties and realistic about what we could afford on the budget that we wanted to adhere to. I would recommend First National to anyone and cannot sing their praises high enough." Rebecca, Hayden & Kiara
