Best agent in Sans Souci area | Ray is one of the best agents I’ve dealt with over the last few years. Honest and keeps to his promise! Tries his best to get you want and to always keep you happy ... ! If you thinking of selling you really need to sell with Raine and Horne Sans Souci
Ray's professionalism and ability are second to none!
Ray sold my property for me within a week of the first viewing, communicated with me the entire way through and obtained a price well in excess of my expectations. Could not be happier and would not only use Ray and his team again, but will also openly refer him to all of my contacts.
Having dealt with a number of other real estate agents over the years I have absolutely zero issue with stating that Ray and his team are BY FAR the best I have ever dealt with.
Great work Ray and look forward to working with you again in the future!
Great Agent! | I was really impressed how Ray presented himself at home inspection I went to and to then have my broker recommended him, I had no doubt that he was the agent for us!
I like Ray’s calm and professional approach and that he wasn’t too pushy or in your face. He listens to you and respects your decision and tries his very best to get the best outcome for his client. We were very happy with Ray and the outcome of our sale.

HIGHLY PROFESSIONAL! EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE! | Ray and the team at Raine & Horne Sans Souci provided excellent service from word go and throughout the entire campaign to the successful sale of my property at auction.
Being past principals & owners of our own Real Estate Agencies for 10 years we can be skeptical when it comes to selecting an agent. We therefore attended numerous Auctions by numerous agents in the area before interviewing several & making our final decision to go with Ray Fadel. We have to say we couldn't have made a better choice. Ray is meticulous in his dealings & sets a high standard for both his own & his teams work performance. We thoroughly trusted his knowledge of the local market & the auction process & had no hesitation in following his recommendations. He communicated regularly & was always available to answer any questions that arose. He also genuinely cares about the results he achieves for his Vendor which other agents can lose sight of in such a high turnover market. We have no hesitation in recommending Ray Fadel to other vendors who wish to have a stress free, high quality Auction experience.
Ray, you and your team were our first pick and you really stepped up to the plate. Regardless of the outcome, which was way beyond our expectations, we were very impressed with every facet of the job and will recommend you to any prospective vendors - and we have a few.
Ray and his team were personable, efficient and made us feel comfortable with the whole process. We were provided with accurate and informative weekly reports to update us as to the current market and interest in the property. The overall professionalism of Ray and his team is certainly worthy of recommendation and made for a seamless transition from the listing of the property to the actual sale.
Raine & Horne Sans Souci has to be one of the most impressive Real Estate Agency I have come across.I have been looking to down size for the last five months.During that time I have had to deal with many agencies but I have to say Raine & Horne definitely stand out!Communication,efficiency stand out with all the staff headed by Ray Fadel. Ray, congratulations on your team keep up the good work!
Ray and his team provided an excellent campaign including comprehensive written and verbal reports on a weekly basis and information to assist in making decisions for the auction. I would recommend to others if looking for an agent to manage the sale of their property.

Excellent Service. Ray Fadel was the consummate professional, from the very beginning his communication was excellent and consistent throughout the entire campaign. We were very happy with the results he produced....Thanks Ray.
Following is a recommendation for Ray Fadel. Ray helped us sell our house in Scarborough Street, Monterey in February 2014. We decided to sell our home through the auction process. Although we have never been great believers of the auction process Ray showed us that it was the best way to go in our current market. Ray and Aleks were at all times punctual, informative, trustworthy and diligent in their pursuit to get the best price for our home. Ray regularly kept us informed throughout the process and was also a great help in securing our next home. If it wasn't for Ray we would not be living in the home we are in now. Ray told us about our new home well before we sold Scarborough Street. We are so happy with the move we have made, and looking back we realise we are very lucky to have done so seeing that prices have risen so much in our new area. Selling our family home with two young children under the age of 4 was always going to be a very stressful experience, however you both made it an enjoyable one. I would highly recommend Ray Fadel to any person wanting to sell their home or buy a home. Ray is truly dedicated and determined to achieve the best possible outcomes for his clients. I wish him every success in the future.

I recently sold my home through Raine and Horne Sans Souci. Ray Fadel and his team were efficient and obliging and met my every request promptly. They made, what for me could have been a very stressful event, into a smooth and successful sale. I would recommend Ray Fadel and his agency highly and without reservation.
