What Daniel's clients are saying
Daniel Cakmak has helped me immensely throughout the whole process of both buying and selling. He consistently gave willing advice, has been available for questions and pointed me towards properties I might like, even when they were not on his books. He went above and beyond in helping me through the auction process. Both Steven and Daniel were well-presented, relational, reliable and readily available with their time and assistance. Working seemingly tirelessly in selling my apartment, staying calm and dedicated through a difficult period and were assisted in gaining a great price. I would recommend their services to any potential seller.
Dear Steve and Daniel,
Thanks for your great efforts in achieving the marvelous result for the property, prior to auction.
From our first meeting I appreciated your advice in the setting of a price range and determining a marketing strategy. I consider the marketing material was first class.
Also, I appreciated your regular contact to keep me aware, during this at as times stressful period, of the interest being shown by potential buyers.
Again, thanks for your hard work, particularly over the last few days, to complete the sale.
My sister and I are very grateful to have been associated with both Steve & Daniel Cakmak during the sale of our mother’s apartment. As it was a deceased estate, it was responded with understanding & excellent guidance. Being fairly inexperienced in the selling of property, we found we were able to rely on them totally to manage the process with the best possible outcome as a result. We received far more for the apartment than we had imagined possible & feel that our mother would have been very pleased with the result.
VENDOR'S AT 19/7 BROUGHTON ROAD
Selling our home whilst we had two young children was never going to be a fun process; however, Daniel and Steve Cakmak went out of their way to make it as smooth a process as possible. They have a full disclosure policy – they will tell you what every single person thought of your place; what they liked about it; what they didn’t like; and, whether they were still interested.
Having all available information at hand made making the tricky decisions so much easier as you felt as much in control of the process as was possible. They bent over backwards to answer all of our questions; were able to meet at times that were convenient for us; and were always available to answer any and every question that we might have. They guided us through the process and only ever made recommendations that were in our best interests.
Throughout the campaign they checked in with us just about daily to provide updates on how things were going or just to make sure that we were still coping! The honesty and integrity shown by Daniel and Steve, whilst selling our place, means that we would highly recommend them to anyone.
Though sad to farewell our beloved home we could not be happier that we chose Daniel and Steve Cakmak as our selling agents.
SARAH & BRETT
We engaged Daniel and Steve as agents to sell our property in Artarmon as we had become acquainted with them through our search for a new home and felt as though we could trust them to act in our best interests. Not only did they act in our best interests but they exceeded all our expectations every step of the way in keeping us fully informed throughout the process, always being available for any questions we had and 100% honest in dealings with both us and potential buyers. Daniel and Steve made it such a smooth and stress-free selling process that we would have absolutely no hesitation in both recommending them and working with them again. Oh, and they managed to achieve a record price for sales in our street for us!!
BEN & IVY
We recently engaged Steve and Daniel Cakmak to manage the sale of our property. This was one of the best decisions we have made, and the result they achieved was a reflection of their outstanding knowledge and hard work over the course of the campaign. We recommend Steve and Daniel Cakmak to anyone who is thinking of selling their property, and am confident that they will achieve the best possible results for anyone they work with. We will be recommending them to anyone we know selling property in the area, and will only be using them should we need to sell again in the future...
LEO & REBECCA
Despite having multiple ties to other local agents, we engaged Dan and Steve to sell our apartment in Artarmon as we felt immediately comfortable and confident in their approach. Right from the outset we greatly appreciated their personal, supportive manner, particularly as we had not sold before.
Their transparency, experience and knowledge of the local market left us very comfortable we'd made the right choice and distinguished them from other agents. Every step of the way we felt informed and prepared for auction day, and the result took care of itself, going well above our reserve and expectations.
We would highly recommend Dan and Steve for their honesty, friendliness and professional approach to selling. Not only did they understand and acknowledge our views and desires, they respectfully guided us through the process, leveraging their experience and networks to get the best outcome.
And as if that wasn't enough, Dan also helped us find our new home, even liaising with other agents while on holiday!
ROGER & GEMMA
We have worked with many real estate companies and agents in Sydney over the past eight years and Daniel and Steve are a world apart from anyone we've worked with before.
They not only got our property sold at a price above our expectations, but they were also a pleasure to deal with. Their proactive-ness, daily updates, weekly reports and clarity at every step of the way made the sale process a lot less stressful than my past experiences with other agents.
Daniel always went out of his way to help us answer all our questions and patiently spent hours on the phone with us.
He also helped us answer questions and search for our new home, even when he didn't really have to.
Selling/buying a property is one of the biggest decisions anyone will ever make and with Daniel and Steve you are in good hands!
KHUSH & TESH
Steve and Daniel were our agents for the sale of our property. It was complicated being family owned and involved a number of people. They handled this with skill and expertise. Their advice proved to be faultless. They worked unstintingly on our behalf and were in constant communication - nothing was too much trouble. They achieved a great price for us which was also a record in the building. Importantly, we found them to be totally ethical and trustworthy. Many thanks, Steve & Daniel.
The Cakmak boys were absolutely fantastic throughout the whole process of selling my unit in Artarmon. I had purchased another place so there was pressure on to sell the unit. Steve & Daniel conducted themselves in a professional and calm way which relieved the stress around my situation. Communication and keeping me informed was also something Steve promised he would deliver and he most certainly did. I felt confident in their abilities as agents and in the end we got a great outcome which can be attributed to the hard work and follow through we received from the Cakmaks. Would happily recommend them to family and friends.
BEN & ANA
We just want to pass on our sincere gratitude in helping us sell our townhouse recently. From the outset you were both upfront, honest and there was no BS like with other agents we had approached.
As the campaign continued, you made the relevant and necessary contact with us to keep us up to date & informed on proceedings. At all times you made the process easy and you were both so easy to deal with.
We are greatly thankful for all your time and efforts with our sale and we were extremely happy with the end result. We bought from you and are so glad we sold with you.
We would have no hesitation in recommending your services and experience to family, friends or anyone for that matter!!
You both have become our friends for life and looked forward to having you over for a BBQ in our new place.
PETER & STEPHANIE
Since selling my townhouse and with your team’s wonderful assistance getting a very competitive price with which to go forward, it has been a roller-coaster year!
I do appreciate the attention you gave and the work you all put in to achieve the sale outcome. I had not sold before and buying and selling in this day and age is a different proposition to 30 plus years ago. Purchasing where you need to buy is so much harder now and people are beginning to despair of getting a first property...
Thank you all for making the road so much easier.
"I chose Daniel to sell my property because I trust him like a friend. Just like a friend, that trust is gained over time. Daniel has been keeping in contact and presenting us with precisely relevant properties, matching our desired check list and price point, for over 3 years. He went as far as letting us know about properties that weren't his, yet he knew we might like. No other agent has ever been able to match the combination of his excellent property knowledge with his natural connection and bond with us. Selling our property that we held for 20 years was a big deal to us, so we chose Daniel over other agents because we trust him. That trust paid off, as Daniel and his brother Steve really went above and beyond guiding us through over the months of planning and preparation we put them through. We set the bar pretty high, but I believe fairly, and their immense effort from Daniel and Steve paid off on auction day. I highly recommend Daniel and his brother Steve (they come as a well running package), especially if you care about such an important transaction. Be upfront and they'll rise to the challenge."
Steve and Daniel were terrific - great communication, good plan, solid expertise and very helpful throughout the process. We sold long-distance and they took care of absolutely everything. Highly recommended! They made the whole experience as easy as possible.
YUSUF & MERYL
Steve and Daniel are really genuine down to earth guys; what you see is what you get. They were so supportive for the years leading up to our sale helping us in our new property search, people to bounce ideas off of, nothing was too much trouble. They always provided balanced thinking through out our current sale and felt really safe in their hands. So much so, our whole family will miss the regular interactions and laughs we had!
TIMOTHY & SIOBHANN
From the first visit Daniel and Steve were professional, friendly and clearly capable. Due to personal circumstances, I had to leave them to their own devices during much of the campaign, but their regular and informative communications ensured that I knew what was going on at every point in time. I learned to trust them, because they never let me down, and toward auction my confidence was complete. I was not disappointed – everything went like a dream with Vic running a hugely professional auction with an excellent result. The formalities were all taken care of in the moment as well – I did not have to worry about a thing. I recommend Daniel and Steve Cakmak to all vendors and am happy to be contacted for references.
My wife and I both found Daniel to be totally professional and his communication with us was exceptional. In addition to regular updates on our campaign and market moods we received concise explanations of strategies enabling us to be confident of our direction especially being involved in a Auction. Daniel's pleasant friendly personality coupled with his fierce determination to orchestrate a great sale makes for an exceptional combination and we thoroughly recommend his services.
Steve and Daniel Cakmak recently sold our two bedroom townhouse in Artarmon. We were impressed with them from start to finish. We met with them initially to discuss what they could offer. We mentioned that we were meeting with another agent, they were very professional and encouraged us to do thorough research which showed real integrity.
Throughout the entire process they were always available to answer our questions, no matter how small or stupid! They provided a detailed level of information at every step along the way which eased any stress or anxiety we may have felt.
We always felt complete trust and confidence in Steve and Daniel's experience and strategy.
On top of everything we enjoyed working with them and developed a strong rapport during the process. We know they will continue to be successful. We are more than happy to recommend them to any potential vendors in the future.
JULIA & JASON
I found Daniel to be very professional and helpful during our purchase process.
Daniel (and his brother Steve) provided an impeccable level of service during my recent sale of my property in Artarmon. Great market knowledge, outstanding communication and excellent marketing resulted in a result that was superb. Plus, they're great guys! I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for real estate services on the lower North Shore.
Enthusiastic, friendly, genuine. It was such a pleasure working with Dan and his brother Steve, the Cakmak brothers. Dan was always very enthusiastic and kept our spirits high when situations arose. He was always available to help us when we had any questions. He was an excellent communicator when discussing the campaign and auction process. His friendly nature made our selling experience less stressful as we were filled with excitement. Dan and Steve together make a great team as they are both genuine and credible with strong market knowledge. Their daily phone calls and weekly meetings made us feel well informed and confident. I strongly recommend them to sell your property as they will work hard to get the highest possible price for you whilst making it a fun experience!
Daniel is pro-active, passionate and professional and we can't recommend him highly enough. Daniel's regular communication was flawless and we felt informed about how our campaign was progressing every step of the way. What's more is that he is strategic in his approach from everything including the marketing to how to achieve the best price for our property. After a not so favorable experience selling our last property, it was refreshing to find an agent who we could trust and who we had complete faith in. The proof of course is in the end result, and Daniel helped us to achieve a great price for our property, which was a record for our townhouse complex.
BELINDA & ADAM
Daniel was approachable and friendly. He has excellent knowledge of the market. He comes across as caring and trustworthy.
CARLA & ROGER
Daniel and I had been working together for more than 12 months and during that time we had many interactions. During this time Daniel was always affable and happy to speak with my wife and I. I found the whole process of purchasing a property with him to be pleasant and as often is not the case he maintained his professionalism throughout the process.
Ben & Shelley
After renting my townhouse for the past 12 months, I made the decision to sell. This was quite daunting at the time as I was no longer living in Sydney and needed to seek professional advice as to where to start! Before leaving Sydney, I had arranged with Daniel to receive regular updates on the Artarmon market. Right from our initial conversation, I was very confident in engaging Daniel and his brother Steve, as the agents handling the sale of the property. I was continually kept informed, and supported every step of the process with regular contact irrespective of the time difference, nothing was too much trouble. With Daniel’s and Steve’s expertise, I was comfortable the planning and preparation was in excellent hands! The energy and efforts from the whole team was much appreciated, and reflected in a sale on auction day. Thank you so much ensuring successful and professional outcome.
