What our clients have to say about Joe
“Joe’s ability meant that my aunt’s house was sold at a great price, quickly and importantly to people who seemed to be going to care about the house. My aunt was in and out of hospital and a nursing home prior to and during the sale. Joe’s professionalism, communication skills and empathy meant that we knew he was there for any of our needs but he didn’t intrude at all at such a stressful time for us all. We were grateful the experience was so good and hassle free. It was the only smooth thing to happen at the time! Well done Joe and team.”
“The team at Dowling Property Group were the best. We went with them because they had sold, successfully, 4 other houses in our street. That was enough recommendation for us, and it proved correct. From the word go Joe and his team were considerate of our needs, communicated effectively and explained the pros and cons of different strategies we could undertake to sell our home. Our home was sold within a week with a sale price way beyond our expectations. Thank you to Joe and all at Dowling Real Estate.”
“Joe has a top team to deal with, very professional. The advice we received on presentation of the property was very helpful. We were kept up to date with the progress of all aspects of the sale and the final price we received was well above what we were hoping for. We were more than surprised when when the sale occurred the first week of marketing. Certainly rates five star for effort. A very credible agent who I would recommend without hesitation.”
“Joe was very accessible during the whole process despite suffering severely from the flu. He has was ably supported by office staff who were well informed on details and if there was something they were not aware of, they would promptly seek full information and return a call to advise of progress. I was responsible for many delays in getting property ready for sale but Joe and his staff were patient and understanding, giving professional advice to placing house on the market until some basics were completed thus giving us the best chance of the good sale price we achieved.”
“Fantastic Work. Joe clearly understood our situation, and in spite of some limiting factors on our side he was able to negotiate a good price, higher than other agents had believed our property was worth. He very much went above and beyond in terms of attention to us and dedication to making the sale responsibly. We would absolutely recommend him to any prospective sellers.”
“When my wife and I decided to downsize and sell our home of 36 years we chose Joe Di Claudio as our agent. Friends and neighbours asked why choose an agent out of the area? We chose Joe because he had acted for us last year on the recommendation of a friend. During that sale process we were impressed by his astuteness on valuing the property, in that he achieved a sale price at the upper end of his estimate. In the sale process he and his team were impressive in their attention to detail, professionalism in dealing with prospective buyers and us as vendors. In short, we trusted Joe—for us trust is the one quality that cannot be valued too highly. In selling our home, much loved by us and our family, our faith in his expertise was justified. His calm, methodical and good use of advertising channels achieved the estimate sale price he suggested when we first discussed selling. At this event he had already provided considerable research on the area, recent sales and information on our house and land. We were very impressed and wish to thank Joe and his friendly team very much.”

“The service we received from Joe Di Claudio and his team at Dowling Property Group was exceptional. Not having ever sold a property before we could not have asked for a better Real Estate Agent to guide us through the process. Joe was patient and provided tips to help us prepare the house to achieve the best result. His local market knowledge is invaluable and the estimated sale price was realistic. We sold the house pre auction for more than we expected and couldn’t be happier. Thanks Joe and the team at Dowling Property Group”
The Turnbull Family
“After interviewing four agents, we chose Joe Di Claudio to put our house on the market. His confidence to sell our house, knowledge of the market and warm personality made us feel that this was the man to do the job. We were right. After three open houses we had sold! Throughout the process Joe maintained contact with us, giving us feedback from viewings and clearly answering all our questions. I was impressed that he was willing to even use his personal time to promote our sale. Joe made a process that could have been quite stressful, very comfortable. We certainly made the right choice!”

Robert & Jenny T.
“After a failed attempt to sell my property with another agency I contacted Joe Di Claudio of Dowling Property Group with a view to sale. Two days after the Agency Agreement was signed he arranged for the property to be advertised on the internet and arranged for professional photographs to be taken of the house. Joe kept me informed on a regular basis with updates concerning the sale and leading up to the exchange of Contracts. To my surprise after less than 2 weeks on the market the property was sold for a higher than anticipated sale price. Throughout the sale process Joe conducted himself in a professional manner and was polite and courteous at all times and was a pleasure to deal with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Joe to anyone who is thinking of selling their property. Thank you for a job well done.”
“Joe and his team at Dowling Property Group are very knowledgeable of the local real estate market and how best to position my property for the ‘best outcome’ possible. The sale of my home was achieve within 9 days and I received a great price. I was kept informed at all times of progress which was great considering I live interstate. Dowling Property Group and Joe are a great team and it was a pleasure to have dealt with them in the sale of my home. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to sell. ”
“My five siblings and I were recently faced with the prospect of selling our mother’s home after she entered full-time residential care. We were very aware that a quick sale was necessary, but also wanted to ensure that the property realised its best sale price.
With so many of us involved, it was clear that we would not always agree on every point, and as the eldest, I was given the responsibility of coordinating arrangements. Our first meeting with Maria Di Claudio was on a Sunday morning, and she gave us a candid appraisal of the property, and an indication of what price range it might realistically fit in. Within a couple of hours she had contacted us with a market assessment, and we unanimously confirmed her appointment as our agent.
Maria was on leave during the latter part of the sale period, and in her place, Joe Di Claudio ensured that we received the same courteous, attentive and honest service. At all stages of the selling process, we felt very confident that Mum’s house was in good hands, and that there would be no ‘surprises’. We were updated regularly throughout, and both Maria and Joe made themselves available for contact at all times.
The property was sold in a very reasonable timeframe, for a price which met our expectations: as we had all come to expect, the settlement process was handled smoothly and without stress on our part.
Organised, efficient, informative, and honest all describe the Dowling Property Group approach. On behalf of my family, I would have no hesitation in engaging them in the future, and can confidently recommend them to any prospective vendor.”
“Joe provided Karl & myself with excellent advice based on many years involvement in the Real Estate industry in Newcastle. Our expectations with regards to selling our property have all been met. We value our association with Joe & have already recommended his services to others. Thank you Joe!”

“Dowling Property Group, and in particular Joe, was recommended to us as a genuine, professional and reliable real estate agent that would be great to work with if we decided to sell our property. We can confidently say that the experience with Dowling Property Group lived up to everything that was promised in that recommendation. Whilst our primary contact was Joe, who was fantastic to work with, all the staff that we came across were friendly, polite and helpful. Anything that was promised was delivered – and on time. They clearly do their research, are adaptable and flexible and considerate of how the client might be feeling – whether buying or selling. We would highly recommend them to anyone considering selling their property.”
“Joe Di Claudio and his team at Dowling Property Group recently sold our family home in Woodstock Street Mayfield. Our dear mum had got to know Joe through family and asked that he be the one to sell the home when she passed on.

We were provided with excellent information, suggestions and feedback during the entire process, with the sale being finalised within a fortnight of it being placed on the market.

John & Kathy L
“We listed our property for sale with Joe at Dowling Property Group because not only did he come recommended by satisfied friends, but we were very impressed by Joe’s manner, attentiveness, knowledge, the information he provided and his follow-up when we had previously viewed properties he had listed, as potential buyers.
It was important to us that our selling agent would be honest, genuinely like our property therefore taking pleasure in selling it and be determined to achieve the best price possible for us, not just a quick sale.
When listing our property for sale with Joe we knew we were in excellent hands and were completely confident he would do the right thing by us as clients. From day one the level of care, courtesy and attention that Joe and his staff provided was outstanding and truly appreciated by us. At all times Joe was highly professional, reliable, positive in his attitude, honest, maintained communication and was happy to meet with us at any time.
Joe sold our home achieving an excellent price – in fact the highest price achieved in the street, and took great care in ensuring the process went smoothly.
We take great pleasure in recommending Joe to anyone considering selling their home. Thank you Joe!”

We were provided with excellent information, suggestions and feedback during the entire process, with the sale being finalised within 10 days of being placed on the market. We found Joe to be honest in his appraisal and all our dealings, and believe Joe is the only agent in Newcastle to trust with your property.

Rob & Prue
“I was so happy with the result Joe achieved on selling my own home last year that I decided to have him sell my father’s house in Hamilton. At Joe’s suggestion we placed the home on the market with an Auction campaign but one week into the campaign Joe received several great offers and SOLD the house for well above what I had expected.
Joe’s professionalism, experience, knowledge, advice and negotiation skills are outstanding and I would happily recommend Joe Di Claudio to anyone who is thinking of selling or would like some advice on the current market.
I would also like to thank him for his understanding and sensitivity to all the family members in selling dads home and to congratulate him on having such a great team of professional staff at Dowling Property Group.”
Laurie S. & Michael S.
“We listed our home in Warabrook with Dowling Property Group because houses in our area seemed to be selling under their banner. We contacted Joe Di Claudio & found him & his team to be friendly, professional & available.
They explained all options including current market trends, as a result, we decided to sell by auction. Prior to going to auction, Joe introduced our property to their large database of prospective purchasers.
Due to this we were able to sell without going to auction for a very satisfactory outcome. We would certainly recommend Dowling Property Group to our friends.”
Sally & Brian McDermott
“I wish to personally thank you and your staff at Dowling Property Group for the outstanding professionalism in the management of the sale of our home. At a difficult and emotional time for us, you showed respect and integrity at all times. From the start, Dowling Property Group personnel demonstrated excellent knowledge of the local property market and the most appropriate sales strategy. A clear testament to your experience was the effective sale of our property at Auction exceeding all expectations. I most enjoyed your enthusiasm and energy to achieve our goal. Your proficient communication and organisational skills aided in a seamless flow of potential buyers through the property at open home sessions and during individual viewings. I would certainly recommend the Dowling Property Group sales team to anyone selling or purchasing a property”
“A big thank you must go out to Joe Di Claudio and his staff for the very professional, courteous and helpful way they conducted the sale of our home. Their advice was always clear and helpful. Their prompt reply to any queries were reassuring and always appreciated. The regular weekly inspection reports gave us welcome updates on where the sale campaign was heading.
The selling of a home is always a stressful exercise but we found that dealing with Joe and the team gave us a peace of mind and we take pleasure in recommending them to anyone negotiating the sometimes difficult path towards a property sale.”
