  • Just a few lines to let you know that I am very happy with the services you provided at the property inspection site today. Note: my wife Michelle is particularly impressed by the way you handled our final inspection despite of a bit complicated situation. With you managing our property, I am sure we will enjoy the long term relationship with each otherBy Kenny Zhang
  • Michael, thank you for all your advice and management of my investment.
    You are an outstanding property manager, all our dealings were seamless. Thank you again!By John Rizoski
  • Yesterday I was getting my place ready for the tenants to move in and I met Michael Catalano for the first time and I have to say what a wonderful man Michael is, he was fantastic, arrived on time, I still had some cleaning to do, he was understanding, polite and a sheer delight. My eighty year old parents were at my place helping me and Michael was so genuinely nice to them, really his manners are impeccable, he even helped my dad take a load of brooms and etc down to the car.By Tracey Lucas
  • We rented out our property fully furnished and we we're quite apprehensive about being able to rent out our apartment fully furnished and how the whole process would work.

    From the very first visit with Michael Catalano we were totally put at ease and relaxed about the whole process.Michael was extremely knowledgeable and professional and has been maintained his complete professionalism in all out dealings with him and indeed the entire TRUE properties team.

    Michael has kept us fully informed at all stages throughout the renting process and has shown a complete commitment to us his clients.

    For anyone wanting to rent their property through an agent we would not hesitate in recommending Michael Catalano and TRUE properties for a comprehensively professional and warm service and complete peace of mind.
    By Gavin Burgess
  • I would like to thank you for your high standards of professionalism and customer service in dealing with the management of my Bondi rental property. I have worked with various property managers over the past 13 years and have been impressed by your level of communication, advice, care and simply getting the job done.

    I would not hesitate to recommend you to others.

    I look forward to another year of working with you and True Property
    By Michaela Wolf
  • Hi Michael,
    I want to say thank you for transitioning my investment my property at Bellevue Hill to new tenants. This was the first time I had to find new tenants to replace existing tenants and I was consequently anxious given I had no idea of the process or how the rental market was performing.
    I am indebted to the quality service including vetting potential tenants, frequent and unobtrusive contact throughout the process. I also greatly appreciated the sensible advice and recommendations.
    I had literally no loss of rental time transitioning between tenants. I will continue to work through TRUE PM on future property investments.
    Thanks again Michael,
    Peter

  • I am very happy about the high level of professionalism of True Property. You set a bench mark against which I compare other agents. By Jacklin Issavi, Redfern, NSW
  • We have found you to be an excellent managing agent and wish to thank you for all your help.By Phillipa and Phil Smith
  • I would highly recommend True Property for any Real Estate enquiry.
    I have used there services on numerous occasions since 2006 when i have decided to let out my property for short and long term rentals while overseas.
    They have always been extremely professional , quick to respond to my needs .I always feel they are renting out a property as if their own home, so vet and reference check potential tenants which gives me comfort that my property is going to be well looked after.
    Michael Catalano, has been my dedicated agent for some while now .He is always approachable and gets back to me quickly with results.
    I highly recommend if you are looking for a company to sell or rent your property to try True Property.

  • My thanks to the True Property team for what has been an excellent period of association throughout my tenancy for >3 years.By Cliff Bell, Glebe, NSW
  • I would like to commend your company on the professional way that you treat your clients.

    By Simon Wheeler, Rodd Point NSW
  • Hello Michael, we are very pleased with the outcome of Saturdays auction. I was very uneasy that we would not get many bidders and the sale would not happen or happen at a level that I would be pleased with. But all went extremely well from my perspective. Thanks for all the work of yourself, Rick, Karen and Trea.By Bryan Dwyer
  • Elaine and I would like to thank you for your help whilst we were the owner’s and it has been a pleasure to have had you manage our property.
    By Anna Rorke - Property Buyer
  • It is with great pleasure that I supply True Property and my agent Michael Catalano with a testimonial to the brilliant service that has been shown during the management of my investment property in Mascot.
    I was first recommended the services of True Property in 2007 and during my 8 year tenure with True Property I found their service to be consistent and professional. Michael has always kept the lines of communication open and I was always completely confident that my Unit was being managed with upmost skill and competence.
    Finding a secure and consistent property management team can often be challenging and stressful especially when dealing with substantial investments that draw a personal link for the owner. I can say without a doubt that I have every confidence in Michael and True Property to deliver service second to none in their field and will both return to, and refer their business in the future. Thanks for a job very well done! Terissa Robinson
    By Terissa Robinson - Mascot
  • Hi Michael,

    Jo and I would just like to thanks you for the amazing result you got for us on Saturday. The hard work you put in and the passion you have certainly made all the difference. We are thrilled with the outcome and wish you every success in your new role as MD at True Property. We will be sure to highly recommend True property to anyone should they ask.

  • I purchased my first property through True Property in 2011. When I subsequently did a 'sea change' a year later I had no hesitation in appointing True Property as property managers for rental, as I had such a positive experience with the property purchase.

    More recently I sold this property and as my experience with True Property had continued to be excellent I had no hesitation appointing the sale to Michael Catalano. While my small studio would have undoubtably been one of True Property's more modest listings, I always received outstanding service from Michael. I was very happy with the sale, Michael achieved a good result and his understanding of the market, attention, promptness, diligence and honesty in all matters was greatly appreciated as a first time seller.

    I have no hesitation in recommending Michael Catalano and True Property as an outstanding agent.
    By Julie Bennett
  • Michael’s service was beyond exceptional. Michael made the selling process very smooth sailing and stress free. He was able to achieve $80,000 more than the previous sale in the building which was auctioned 3 weeks prior to my property. I would not hesitate recommending Michael to anyone out there looking to sell their home.
    By Justin and Luisa Satti
  • Hi Michael,
    The settlement has gone through today which is very exciting, glad to have this finalized!

    Thank you indeed for your help in organising the purchase, it's been a good process for a first-time buyer like me!
    By Svetlana Zhukova - Glebe
  • Michael has been our agent for a few years now and I cannot speak highly enough of him as both an agent and an individual. He posesses a high level of integrity, credibility and commitment, which made him an easy choice above the others out there. He is extremely well mannered and has an ease and confidence with his work that allowed us as clients, to feel relaxed in his hands. The level of service he delivers is difficult to beat. Top that off with a record breaking sales result and need I say more.By Belle Raine - Erskineville
  • I have been very fortunate to have had Michael as my Property Manager and now as the selling agent for my property in North Sydney. Michael's integrity and professionalism is outstanding and he is committed to upholding these principles whether he deals with the tenants or the owner. In his role as partner in True Property, he has imbued his staff with these principles too and I trust whoever I have dealt with at the company.His advice to me has always been on target and he has helped me to take advantage of changing market conditions on more than one occasion.If ever there was someone who has chosen the ideal industry to be a partner in, it is Michael. I have been privileged to work with Michael and all the staff at True Property. It is rare to have such absolute faith in a real estate agency.By Janique Lambert
  • Michael acted well on behalf of his Vendor. He was very responsive with inspections outside of his schedule and ready to provide any information requested. Michael maintained good contact and communication with me as a prospective purchaser, without appearing overly pushy - a style which distinguishes him somewhat from many others in this hectic market, where quieter buyers tend to be rather ignored.By Robyne Tracy
  • Couldn't ask for a better result. Michael and the team at True Property were professional throughout and achieved the result we were hoping for. Communication is key and Michael kept us well informed throughout the campaign. I would recommend Michael highly to anyone in need of a trustworthy and honest real estate agent.By Michael Francipane
  • Owning properties was my life's passion. Over the years, I have dealt with many mainstream agents in sales and rentals as a landlord. I've now reached retirement and the sale of my most important asset, my family home. The market has changed over time. I therefore decided to put my trust in the hands of a new type of agent. An agent who was prepared to devote more time to communicating with me and keeping me informed throughout the process. Instead of being given a string of names and phone numbers, I had the confidence of one number accessible at all hours. Thank you, Michael and your team for making my retirement transition easier and more enjoyable. Eva StovernBy Eva Stovern

  • Highly recommend to anyone looking out for a passionate and competent property management agency. They had my apartment rented out in under a week and their experience through out the entire process was invaluable.By Nathan Dundovic
  • I'd like to thank everyone I have spoken to at True Property for the superb service I have received during the time you managed my property.It removed a huge headache I had at the beginning of last year! I really appreciate all the hard work you have done and I'm so glad you are being used to manage the property by the new owner.

  • I have known Michael Catalano professionally for many years. Firstly as the manager of my property, then as the owner of the Real Estate business and finally as the agent who sold my property. Michael is an astute Real Estate agent with a deep knowledge of the Sydney property market. In all our dealings over many years Michael never let me down. Michael's success is not only built on his personal dedication and commitment but also on his leadership. Michael built the True Property Management business by carefully selecting the right staff and only choosing competent and capable people who live the values of trust and accountability. Capability, Trust and Service are the hallmarks of the True Property business and the values Michael and his team live by. When you do business with True Property Management you can rest easy. They are a long way ahead of the rest.By Peter Marks - Camperdown
  • We highly recommend Michael Catalano as a property manager. He is Always available, very responsive and very through. He was the best property manager we’ve ever had. We would definitely use him again.

    very responsive,
    By Kylie Cochrane
  • It has been an absolute pleasure having Michael Catalano as my property manager. As an investor and as one himself, he totally understands my needs... viewBy Samantha Tsang, Bondi Junction
  • We would like to express how impressed and thankful we are in the professional and thoughtful way he handled an issue with the hot water system which occurred over the weekend. We have two children under 4 years, both with colds (of course) so the degree of urgency he imparted and the solution he achieved was greatly appreciated!
    We have a couple of rental properties back in NZ, so we certainly appreciate how important it is to have a professional property manager for both the owner and the tenants - Michael has certainly shown that level of professionalism on our dealings with him.
