Peter Schenck and Zen Chan conducted themselves in a thoroughly professional manner at all times during the sales process. The entire experience was transparent and factual without any fuss. We achieved our desired result and for that we thank Peter and Zen. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ray White Blackburn and Peter Schenck if the opportunity arises

Hi Peter, Thanks so much for assisting with the boards at VS Primary School Fete. I attended on the day and the boards looked amazing!! Thanks for pulling this together so quickly and offering this support. This helped the school raise just over $10,000. Much appreciated. Sharon

I was very happy with the auction result and the conduction of open for inspections. Easy to deal with agents, took time to help out. "Got us over the line on the day" Second time I have used them and still happy with the result.

I am writing to thank you and your team, Trista and Chris, for a job well done in achieving an excellent result in the sale of my home of nearly 40 years. Your team's advice in preparing my house for sale was both helpful, and in my opinion, ultimately beneficial to the very satisfying outcome. To you personally, whilst the actual auction on the day did not, to me, appear an easy start, you overcame initial bidder tentativeness, and by applying a pre-determined sales strategy, brought the day to a very successful conclusion. Thank you.

I have been working with Peter and his team for the past 10 years. I always like their professional handling of any matters that arise. As has been mentioned, I am in the real estate business myself (developer). I have dealt in a lot of real estate over the last 30 years up to now, and I believe they Ray White Blackburn should get the award for customer service. I always have no hesitations to recommend them to my friends and family.

Peter Schenck, my agent was friendly and nothing was too much trouble. He negotiated the sale by the fixed date and kept me informed of progress each week. It was a pleasant experience to deal with Ray White Blackburn.

Beatrice Reedyk - 5 Orbost Court, Vermont

Peter Schenck has sold 3 houses for us, this being the 3rd. We have been very happy with his performance in all cases. He is very tenacious as an auctioneer and gets the best out of the prospective buyers.

Allan & Elizabeth Young - 5 Settlers Court, Vermont South

Peter was very informative and patient in meeting my requests and explained in details regarding the preparation for the auction. He gave me very positive and realistic advice regarding the sale of the house.

John & Fay Uren - 15 Station Street, Blackburn

I cannot thank Peter Schenck, Trista Lee and Peter Bell enough for their understanding and care during the time of selling my Fathers house. I was kept up to date by phone, email and text messages about open home results and how property prices were going in the area. I was overjoyed with the auction of my Fathers house with the result being much more than I expected. I would recommend the staff at Ray White Blackburn to anyone selling their property!

John and I would like to thank you, Peter and Trista for the wonderful received we achieved when our property at 16 Verona Street, Vermont South was auctioned in May. We were kept informed at all stages and knew exactly what to expect throughout the process. We were impressed with the professionalism and knowledge you all demonstrated and would thoroughly recommend you to future vendors.

Jane & John Wilson - 16 Verona Street, Vermont South

Peter Schenck and his team were the ultimate professionals who made the sale of our family home (of more than 50 years) as easy as possible for us. Peter and team were approachable, happy to answer all our questions, and really made us feel they were there for us. They put us at our ease on Auction day which could have been an emotional time, and their performance on the day was fantastic. We highly, and with pleasure, recommend Peter Schenck and his team.

Barbara Lavelle - 4 Wembley Court, Forest Hill

We would like to thank you and your team for the great work you all contributed towards the sale of our home on Saturday, 14 June 2014. If you recall, we were reluctant to sell via auction but you convinced us that it was the best way to go. We took your advice and even when we both became "wobbly" about the process; you provided positive support and advice, which was very much appreciated. The professionalism of you and your team are exemplary and we feel sure we could not have achieved such a great price for our home without all your and their hard work. Once again, thank you, your energy and positive attitude was a great assistance and even today we are pinching ourselves on such a great result. Please pass on our best wishes to your team.

We were very happy with the efficient services of Peter Schenck & Trista Lee. They were very courteous, helpful and gave of their time generously. The house was sold within 8 days after the first open for inspection - 3 signed contracts were presented for our consideration. The whole process ran very smoothly and was stress free. Could not have been happier with our choice of agent.

Bill & Trish - 7 Paranda Court, Vermont

Peter has done a good job in the sale of my property. The house was sold prior to auction. Peter managed to negotiate a good price for us.

Very happy with the service provided by Ray White Blackburn and the team. Thank you

Michael Hoy - 3 Everglade Avenue, Forest Hill

I first met Peter Schenck and Helen Gikas at a Ray White auction. I was very impressed with Peter's handling of the auction - very professional, and firm but with warmth and humour. Helen was also very helpful, warm and professional. During the lead up to my auction I was very nervous and both Peter and Helen dealt with my nerves beautifully whilst they kept me updated on potential buyers with regular reports. Peter and Helen were exceptional at my auction and miraculously, achieved the amount i desired/needed. I have the utmost respect for their abilities to sell real estate and came away very happy at the whole experience. I will not, and have not hesitated to recommend Peter Schenck and Helen Gikas from Ray White to anyone with ears!

Angelina Colafella - 110 Boronia Road, Vermont

I am not often moved to write and record my appreciation and recognition of outstandingly excellent work and good practice. This is because I have seldom found it. This is not the case with Ray White Blackburn. The whole experience from the initial appraisal to the signing of the contract and later advice that the purchaser's finance had been approved has been of the highest order. The punctuality of yourself and every member of your team cannot be faulted. Helen Gikas was not only familiar with the intricacies of the property to be sold but was familiar with the status of the real estate market in general. After each inspection we received feedback which to us was vital as it "kept us in the loop" and not wondering about outcomes. Both my husband and I are extremely grateful to yourself and your team at Ray White Blackburn as it has resulted in an outcome way beyond our expectations.

Tracey Okalyi - 51 Thornhill Drive, Forest Hill

My wife and family would like to thank you for handling the sale of our home. Also we were very impressed with the level of professionalism displayed by your staff. Peter also assisted us with other trades and services that are essential to achieving such a great result. These included a gardener / landscaper, cleaner, photographer and interior designer. Peter and his team were very patient with us and took into account factors such as our young family.
