Bill Cook

It was a great pleasure to meet with people from Williams Batters, especially with Mr Bill Cook and Mr Ian Coutts. Their very professional, kind and valuable explanations helped us to better understand the matters connected with selling the flat. We would like to underline very professional advice concerning preparation of the flat for inspections as well as all matters connected with advertising. Well-presented materials available on the internet and printed helped to attract many potential buyers. Professionalism, engagement and kindness of all the team members from Williams Batters contributed greatly to the final success during the auction. Mr Bill Cook, thanks to his great experience and exceptional skills, made the final success so impressive.
We would like to say thank you to all the team from Williams Batters involved in selling our flat. We would like to say thank you to Mr Ian Coutts for his fruitful cooperation, his kindness and being always ready to help. Especially we would like to say thank you to Mr Bill Cook for his dedication to all matters connected with auction, his very informative and understandable explanations and for his sense of humour. Thanking once more, we are willing to recommend Williams Batters and especially this team to everyone who would like to achieve success and to have a pleasure to work with such well experienced, professional, dedicated and kind team.

Dear Bill,
We thank you both for the comprehensive and professional service you have extended to us during this sale process. We took great confidence in your professional performance. We appreciated your attention to detail with your weekly reports and will be recommending you to our family and friends as reputable and professional agents to trust in the Stonnington area.

– Trish and Sue

“Your auctioneering skills really impressed me. You took a situation which could have easily ended up with a no sale …however you spun the auction on its head and obtained an incredible result. I bought the property in 1994 from Williams, I rented it for 8/9 years with Williams and I sold it via Williams. Thank you for a good ten years!”

– Anthony Meleca

“I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to any friends and business acquaintances”

– Russell & Jacqui Bate

“The eventual sale price, which was well above my most optimistic estimate, is testament to the professionalism and enthusiasm of your team. I particularly appreciated the regular updates on the number of people who inspected the flat and the level of interest in the property”

– Mrs F Barrett

Once again, thank you all”

Dear Phil,
Thanks very much for a very good and professional job in selling the above. it was a very good result in my view and both Rob and I were impressed with the professionalism of you and your team.

– Murray Kellam

“I should say agree 100% with Murray’s email to you yesterday morning. It was an excellent result and it was all managed in such a good and professional way by your office. As we were walking away talking after the auction Murray and I were saying to each other if we had not had your help with organising the trademen and the like we would probably still have been trying to get the work finished”

– Robert Davey

Leasing Department

“I just wanted to drop you a line thanking you for your advice and assistance in regard to my Claremont property. You put me on a path with a plan which eased my mind considerably. I have felt in good hands with Ashton and as you would be aware, they were most successful in securing a suitable tenant recently”

– Susan Jeffries

 Joshua Ling

To Whom it may Concern:
I recently sold an apartment on St Kilda Road, Melbourne through Williams Batters in South Yarra and I must say it was a great experience due, in no small part, to the excellent service provided by Joshua Ling. The appraisal was timely, accurate (which was a pleasant change) and provided lots of relevant market information to support it.
From day one, Joshua hit the ground running with a program of regular open for inspections, letterbox drops, contacting potential buyers from his network and he provided constant feedback throughout the entire campaign (which was also a pleasant change).
I would certainly recommend both Joshua Ling of Williams Batters to anybody considering buying or selling a property.

– Wayne McDermott

Hi Ashton,

I’m writing to thank you and your team in particular Joshua Ling for the professional way the transition of moving into the apartment occurred. From the first viewing to getting the power on was a smooth process. This is sometimes forgotten in business. Thanks again


Ginni Sidhu

It is with great content I am writing to recognize my recent experience with one of your property managers.
From the day of the inspection, to the communication via email/telephone and finally to negotiating with the landlord and picking up the keys, Ginni Sidhu has been an absolute delight to work with in obtaining all the relevant information/keys for the property of 75/145 Canterbury Road in Toorak.
I feel like she truly endeavors to meet customer needs and follow through with any requests.
It was my first time moving out, and having dealt with few too many rude agents who do not care a week prior has made the experience stressful and depressing but it turned when I got in contact with Ginni. I feel like she is a representation of what an excellent agent is and I do feel that it should be recognized.

Please commend Ginni on her positive attitude and and oustanding work ethic I believe she possesses.

Thank you,
