From Tim Urquhart

Now that my house at 152 Hereford Street has settled I wanted to take the opportunity to drop you a line and pay my gratitude to you for your efforts.

As the principal of A J Portelli Property for the selling of my home in Forest Lodge, you provided a first class service across all aspects in the strategy, marketing and sale of the property. No issue was too small to attend to and your attention to detail in addressing all matters was outstanding. But most importantly your impeccable manner, friendliness and client focus is what shone through at all times.

Needless to say I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who is looking to sell their property.

I wish you every success in building your business to make it an outstanding success- you deserve it.

Warm regards


From Dr Stephen Judd

This is a short note to compliment your work in getting my apartment ready for re-letting

Frankly, I have never encountered such superb work from a property manager. Your advice, your availability and your project management of the renovations was fantastic. You used your skills in an absolutely professional and personable manner

Quite simply, you provided the best example of property management that I have come across in 25 years.

With all good wishes

I have pleasure in providing the following reference for Anthony Portelli

I have engaged Anthony as my Real Estate Agent for the past 3 years. Over this time he has always exceeded my expectations for customer service. His manner is highly professional yet personal and relaxed. He has the rare ability to take the stress out of Real estate dealings and has successfully managed several of my properties and sold another with minimum fuss for maximum return.

I have no hesitation in recommending Anthony to any prospective vendor or landlord.


From Mary Katis

I am pleased to say that I have worked with Anthony Portelli for the period of January 2003- Until current

Anthony is an inspiration to all that work with him, Anthony is currently managing my property in Newtown and has previously managed properties for me in Darlinghurst and Alexandria. I have found him to be very diplomatic a quick problem solver and most importantly he carries a "can do attitude" which is required in such a competitive industry such as Real Estate.

I have found Anthony to be fair and prompt in addressing tenants concerns and ensuring all tenants are kept comfortable whilst leasing my properties. I have found all maintenance concerns are addressed promptly, all payments are processed on time and my questions are addressed and actioned in a professional manner

I write this situation to inform you of Anthony's determination, under extreme pressure knowing that other clients as well as tenants have also requests apart from mine however Anthony always conducts himself in a very professional manner ensuring that all requests are met. Over the time, Anthony's strong negotiating skills have assisted me in achieving strong rental yields on all of my properties.

Anthony is trustworthy, punctual with all his appointments and is very hard working and I would have no hesitation in recommending Anthony to any prospective landlord or vendor


Anthony has been managing my property at Pymble for the last 2 years and has recently acted on my behalf on its sale.

I have always found him to be courteous and polite, and easy to converse with. On the recent sale he achieved a substantially greater sale price than it was originally listed for, which he ably negotiated with 3 interested buyers.

Had I a further apartment to rent, I would have no hesitation in retaining his services.

I was very satisfied with all the work and professional advice that Anthony Portelli (real estate agent) has given with our recent auction. The house was run down and in need of some professional attention for it to be displayed and sold at the full potential price. Anthony assisted with getting in professional cleaning, painting and plumbing work for display purposes at a very competitive price. Anthony also displayed the property to a vast array of internet marketing and newspaper advertising and conducted ongoing open house and private inspections until auction day. Most importantly Anthony engaged the services of Charlie Powell (auctioneer) who was excellent with his advice and professional demeanour. The property sold on auction day above the reserve price much to our joy and satisfaction. I have no hesitation in recommending AJ Portelli Property to anyone who wishes to use their services.

Thank you for your help in first preparing mums house for lease and then for preparation and marketing for sale. Your choice in auctioneer was excellent and your advice was accurate and helpful. We are very grateful that you obtained a price for mum’s house well above valuation and reserve prices.

Garry has said it would be helpful to give you a recommendation and it written below.

From Tim Urquhart

Further to my recent success with the Land and Environment Court case, to which you made a substantial and significant contribution to the outcome, I would like to write a few words both in appreciation of this and in general regarding your outstanding services as the property agent for my home.

Since I moved overseas on temporary work assignment in early 2006 with my family, you have been solely responsible for the management of my home in Glebe. In my eyes this is a significant responsibility given that I intend to return there in due course and hence was looking for someone who could manage it as a family home rather than just another rental property.

In undertaking this role you have done a superb job at all times from the initial letting to appropriate tenants, managing the tenant relationship and the ad hoc week to week maintenance issues, communications with myself while overseas and the commercial advise associated with all of the above.

In carrying out these services I have always found you to be reliable, honest and timely, with no issue ever being questioned as to difficult, which for me, when being so far away, has been nothing short of outstanding.

If you would ever like an informal reference provided to a prospective new client or tenant, I would be delighted to do so at any time.

Yours sincerely


Anthony has proven to be an enthusiastic and trustworthy partner as both a rental management agent and sales representative. He is communicative, pro-active and, above all, is always in a happy and friendly mood. I can only hope to find such a representative for my other property interests!

From Dr Victoria Hiley

Anthony Portelli has managed my property in Pyrmont Point since I first retained him in September 2000 and what a good decision that was! At that time he didn't have his own company but I was so impressed with him that whenever he gained a promotion and moved employers I would follow him without him even asking me to! What I like about Anthony is that he always obtains the best rental rate whilst at the same time making sure the tenant is treated with respect. He is fair in everything that he does. If Anthony senses there is anything at all that you're worried about he actually cares enough to ask you what's troubling you and to sort it out for you as a priority. It's no wonder that he's going great guns with his new business. It's people like Anthony who give real estate agents a good name. I really can't recommend him highly enough.


From Coral Mast

Anthony Portelli has been managing our property in Glebe since 2001. The first few years he was managing our property as a employee of an agency. I was so impressed with his performance that when he establish himself on his own account I had no hesitation to go with him.

Mr Portelli has since then always carried out his duties keeping our interests fully in mind and to our entire satisfaction. I and my family can only very highly recommend Anthony’s professionalism.
