We would highly recommend Monica Shor from Ray White Unlimited who recently assisted us with a difficult property sale. We have used her several times in the past and have always found her professional and well organised. She was helpful and dealt with all problems which occurred. I am very happy to recommend her.
Monica is a very helpful and obliging agent. I found her to be very supportive of me during the very big life changing event. No matter how many times I called her, she would talk me through whatever issues I had.
"We engaged Monica Shor on the recent sale of our house. It was the first time on the market for 47 years. Monica made what was an emotional journey as painless as possible. She was open and communicative throughout the entire process constantly updating us along the way. We felt any decisions we made were very well informed. She was thorough with contacting interested parties and was present at every open for inspection. We were happy with the number of contracts taken out and the open dialogue between us and potential purchasers. As the auction drew closer she explained in great detail the different scenarios that would come into play and we felt confident on the night. We were absolutely thrilled with the result which was $470,000 above reserve. We felt she worked hard to garner that result and it was well deserved. We would highly recommend Monica for her professional approach and lovely manner. "

"What a fantastic result! Thanks so much for your valued assistance in the recent sale of my property in Bondi Junction. Not living in Sydney I expected the process to be somewhat stressful and was not looking forward to it at all. Your passion and dedication shone from the very start and I quickly found myself relaxed and confident with the process. Your advice and market intuition was spot-on throughout. Also impressive was the marketing campaign. Having been a number of years since living at the property it was wonderful to see it looking so well presented in the photographs and online video. I would recommend your services only too highly to anyone looking for an agent, all of your hard work certainly made it a breeze for me! Your regular updates and market information were invaluable when it came to accepting a higher than anticipated offer prior to auction. Thanks again Monica for such a successful outcome."
"Monica is enthusiastic, knowledgeable and gets the job done. She is an excellent communicator; she kept me informed of all developments in a timely manner. I recommend her unreservedly. M Vincent"
"We wanted to thank you for tirelessly working for us in both our recent transactions, buying our new home from you and selling our house for above our expectations. At all times you were available to us and often accommodated our needs after hours. You always had a professional and positive attitude as well as a great willingness to close the deal. We appreciate all the effort you put in and the advice you provided us every step of the way. Overall our experience was one in the same when we bought our new property and then choosing to downsize and sell our home with you. We can’t thank you enough for your honesty and going above and beyond our expectations on all accounts. We would highly recommend your services to anyone who wants a trustworthy, dedicated and skilled estate agent who is passionate about her clients and the results she achieves."

I had a good look at the website last night and found it extremely impressive and inviting. You certainly have a way with words! Our parents showed great foresight in buying that home so many years ago. Thank you so much for your courtesy, your outstanding work and the enthusiasm you have shown since the beginning for our project. I look forward very much to meeting you in due course.
I wanted to say a huge thank you for your outstanding work in selling our apartment in Bondi. Your energy and drive was so impressive. We had been quite disillusioned by a previous sale process but when a good friend suggested we speak with you, she was aware of your track record in the area and said if we were going to sell, you would be the one to make it happen. As you know the sales process can be quite stressful especially given we have a new born, but you made it easy by delivering on all of your promises and provided a completely seamless experience. Your guidance and follow up throughout the sale was so reassuring, you also handled the tenant with ease and were able to once again gain access to our advantage for the sales process while at the same time making the tenant happy. You achieved what we were looking for at auction and didn’t disappoint in any aspect. Thank you again and next time we need an agent we know where to come!

It was a big decision to sell our Bondi Beach property. Monica understood this and made sure it was never just a transaction, but a well managed process that got us to the result we wanted. Even though it was a difficult time in the market, Monica's depth of knowledge of the area, the buyers and the best marketing tools, meant that we got a great result despite the uncertainty. Her communication with us was outstanding - highly professional, but still capturing the emotions and the excitement of the chase, and then the win. We had a result at the first auction, and then follow up after the sale was just as good. Now that settlement has taken place on schedule, we can confidently say that Monica deserves the highest recommendation. The only downside is that we won't see much of her, until the next time we are in the market!
I bought my first property from Monica in 2008; she was helpful from the get go as well as informative and kept me posted during the process which was quite unusual for a buyer when they are buying. Monica kept in touch during the years so when it came time to sell she was really the only option. When it came to upgrading I enlisted in Monica's help but this time I was overseas and thought it would be a difficult process with different time zones. She was incredibly efficient in organising a stylist, the marketing and keeping me well informed until the hammer came down at auction, achieving a fantastic price for me. I was amazed at how easy it was to communicate, and how Monica was available at all hours and how the different times zones never came into question. Her advice and support throughout the process, from the search through to settlement was excellent, I didn’t have to worry about any details as she took care of everything. I have now purchased again and Monica has been very helpful in providing me with the necessary tradespeople for my renovation. Monica provides an invaluable service and I would have no doubt or hesitation in recommending her to everyone I know who is looking for assistance with their property.
"I wanted to thank you for the great result achieved with my apartment. As you know I had a particular target in mind and was determined to get it. I wanted to thank you for your dedication and hard work at achieving that target, even though it meant continuing the campaign after the auction. Well Done!" 21.2.2010
Monica Shor sold our home to us over 7 years ago. We were new to the country and Monica helped make the new process a breeze. Throughout the 7 years, Monica always stayed in touch and never seemed to mind when we told her on various occasions that we wanted to sell or rent our place out, only to change our minds. She happily gave her time and did not make us feel bad when we backed out time and again. When we were finally ready to sell for real, Monica was truly amazing. The level of communication and availability felt 24/7. It was a stressful time and Monica made it flow with ease. Most importantly, she got the best price for us. It does not benefit the realtor to push for that extra ten grand as their commission on that isn't much. But Monica does push for that and even an extra 5 grand if it's there, as she is motivated by getting the best result for you. Thank you Monica, I am truly impressed with your knowledge of the business, your style and results. It could not have gone any better.

I want to thankyou not only for the amazing result, but all your hard work. I made the right decision, you communicated extremely well, marketed the property perfectly and you were extremely thorough in every aspect of the sale.I can't thankyou enough for everything, you're an outstanding agent." 9.3.2010
"I would like to thank you for all your efforts in selling the property. I was delighted with the exposure that the apartment achieved and the high volume of parties that attended the inspection and subsequent bidders. Your enthusiasm and professionalism ensured an outstanding result was achieved." 14.5.2010
"Monica, Just a short note to say thank you very much for your hard work and dedication on the sale. We are obviously thrilled with the result and no doubt all of your endless phone calls, local expertise, marketing push and tireless efforts had a major effect on the result at the auction. Thanks again." 23.7.2010
"We cannot thank you enough for the amazing job you did with not only selling our property for a fantastic price but for also taking care of the whole process. As you know I did not have the time to deal with a difficult tenant and get the property repainted, carpeted, furnished, cleaned, etc as I was in the late stages of pregnancy plus looking after 2 other children. Monica, you did more than just sell our property - you managed the entire refurbishment that was not typical of an agent's duties. Being able to hand over the keys and do nothing more whilst you transformed the property from something quite dismal to something rather amazing was a huge relief so thank you." 2.7.2010

"Very rarely do you find someone as dedicated and committed to their field as you are. Thanks for all your efforts. A big congratulations on your No. 1 placing, you absolutely deserver it and your sales are proof of this. We will be in touch throughout our design and entire process in regards to the development. We are positive and with your professional opinion that this is the way to go. Thanks again and we will speak soon." 2.9.2010
"We would like to thank you for the amazing professionalism, energy & excellent tactics you used, to sell our house. We were delighted with the exposure that our house achieved, and also for all your voluntarily help and time, you spent, to find new home for us." 30.8.2010

"Making the decision to sell our apartment through Monica Shor was as pragmatic as a decision can get. She had the record number of sales on our street, all the best results were hers. In short our decision paid off. It would be amiss to call Monica a Real Estate Agent, she is so much more than that, perhaps a home transition specialist? she provides a total service from the beginning to the end. We have bought, sold and settled and Monica is still supporting and guiding us." 30.7.2010
"Your enthusiasm, energy and professionalism ensured an outstanding result achieved. Your invaluable service to us went far beyond our expectations..." 27.7.2010
I finally met/found an agent that treats every client like they are the most important client in the world! Your service and communication skills are outstanding, you made it so enjoyable in selling our Bondi apartment for the sheer fact that we did not have to do anything, knowing full well you had our interests always at heart - your weekly updates were fantastic - you told us exactly the way it was - a refreshing change.
"At the outset, we wanted to achieve a price above the going market rate, You accepted this challenge, and succeeded brilliantly. Not only did you achieve our price, but did so within a few weeks of us signing the sale agreement. Lyn and I would like to commend you on this achievement on our behalf, and the completely professional way you handled the sale of our unit. We will be recommending you to any of our friends who may want to buy or sell a property." 27.9.2010

As a litigation solicitor for over thirty years I have encountered many incompetent, indifferent and less than honest real estate agents. I am very please to advise Ms Shor has been refreshingly different to those and I commend her services. She has displayed tenacity dealing with the prospective and actual purchasers of this property and has been at all times candid and honest in her dealings with me.
From our very first contact with Monica, we have nothing but praise for all the hard work you and Ray White Unlimited (we now know what the word Unlimited means) have put into such a pleasing outcome for an elderly Lady. We think you are a "Top Communicator" – my Husband Stan said he lost count of your calls to his mobile phone and your emails – he also commented you were always available or got straight back to him.

In my considerable exposure to virtually all of the major agents in Double Bay and having sold many properties over the last 40 years I have not kept it a secret that your professionalism and communication skills are outstanding. You looked after all details and were thorough in all aspects which made the whole experience a pleasure rather than the ordeal it usually is. The way you followed up every interested party or potential buyer was very impressive, you accounted for everyone who had inspected the premises to a level I have not witnessed before.
