Hi Paul & Garvin,
Thank you both for all your help & support & expertise & long/late hours & patience and everything else!
I’m so stoked about my first apartment - I’ve already done a few trips dropping things off and unpacking.
If anyone I know even whispers about buying a property, I’ll be sending them your way!
Thanks so much for all your effort, particularly all of the last minute changes!!
Excellent professionalism and follow through.
Thanks and Regards
Andrew & Gina Tanti
We would like to say a big 'THANK YOU' for all the advice and assistance
you've given us over the past few months - it's been a smooth process. We're
extremely appreciative, especially how you helped us save that $20K just
because we'd asked you to look at the contract for us!
Once we're all settled in our new home, we'll have you guys over for a drink or two, or three...
Prav & Alyeah
We finally made it!
Thanks, everybody, for all your help, above and beyond the call of duty!
Thank you so much for everything - you have been super patient, efficient and awesome through this - I know why Garvin & Paul love you xxx
Thanks a million!
Hi Paul, Garvin and Emma,
I just wanted to say thank you for your work over the past few days. I understand the work you undertook may have been routine for your team but the communication and documents prepared were much appreciated and thanks Paul for the request you drafted up regarding the part payment of the pest treatment at such short notice.
Your effort and time spend in achieving the desired outcome has been greatly appreciated, and I'm sure we will touch base in the near future.
Thank you so much for your unwavering persistence dealing with this mess. We really appreciate you looking after us and our interests with the agent and conveyancer being constantly difficult, unprofessional and mostly just useless!
Angus & Madeleine
Hi Paul and Garvin,
I just wanted to say 'thanks' to you both for your diligence and assistance in helping ensure the smooth sale settlement of Horsfall Street.
You've both been really professional throughout the whole process ... really appreciate your efforts.
Thank you so much for everything you are doing for me, I am just about to read the "clarifications" email you have sent to him.
With much appreciation, (Seriously, I know it's going beyond your duties, I feel so grateful for your help - you don't know how much).
Of course you may use my words. Everything is very sincere. (You have acted like you are my lawyer and I do really appreciate this.)
You are better than a lawyer though by miles, because you are thorough and cross every t and dot every i, leaving no stone unturned.
Great to meet you today and thank you again for work to make the sale of our Donvale property so smooth. We will definitely be recommending you to others and we will also definitely enjoy the wine!
All the best,
Diane & Andrew Smith
Hi Garvin, Paul & Tom,
Thank-you, I have received all the originals for your final settlement figures in mail today.
I also thank -you for the discount applied to your bill.
I really do appreciate all the extra effort and time that you have all gone to in this very difficult transaction, even before the contract was signed and then the many issues you had with getting this to settlement so quickly.
I genuinely appreciate the gesture of the discount, you guys have certainly earnt your fees!
Kind regards and all the best,
Good Afternoon Paul, Garvin & Tom,
Thank you for all you have done for us during the buying and selling of our properties. It has been a rather stressful time to say the least but you guys have been fantastic and so professional.
Must admit we can now relax and enjoy our new home, which we love.
Thank you for all your help and assistance over the months, appreciate all you did for us.
Angela & John Nickless
You should give lessons to solicitors/conveyancers on the subject of allowing for rental at the Adjustment stage. In a very long career in this business, I have never seen such an organised approach from a solicitor/Conveyancer.
Bettina Foott, Rental Accounts Executive
Gary Peer & Associates St Kilda Pty Ltd
Thank you Paul - you have been your usual meticulous marvellous self!!
Thank you for your letter confirming the sale settlement of my old house.
Thank you for all your support during this process. Your calm and measured responses helped me through what I found to be a very difficult process.
Please thank Tom and Paul for their help too.
Thank you for all of your efforts this week in helping me get a resolution on what had suddenly become a very frustrating and difficult situation. It was very much appreciated, as was your sense of calm and your patience. I hope we will be back in touch at some point next year to engage you and the team on far less complex issues.
Firstly many thanks to you and the team today.
Do want to acknowledge the first class service from yourself and the team.
We were originally referred from a friend of Paul's and we can only extend the endorsed you and the team .. first class care and attention to detail.
Think over the last 12 months we have 2 purchases and 1 sale and 1 Contract validation.
Again many thanks
Best endorsements and thank you again
Andrew & Tamara
Sorry I missed your call on Wednesday, it's been a hectic few days.
Thanks very much for all of your help along the way, you helped make this a very efficient and smooth process for us.
Nic & Sarah.
I have used Stonnington Conveyancing on multiple occasions. Many of these presented challenges for them either due to issues with finding documentation, lodgements or my bank's general poor processes. In all of these situations Paul and Garvin went out of their way to make sure issues were addressed by my bank so that sales documentation or settlement could proceed as planned. I was very glad they were keeping track of the process and holding the right people to account and would have no hesitation recommending them.
I wanted to pass on my sincere thanks for your efforts and patience with our recent settlement for 1/121.
The bank (this time around) made it extremely hard for this purchase with some key learnings not to be repeated.
I have drafted a response to the bank including our delays and also the conveyancing delays hoping to improve the process.
With yourself behind the settlement, once again you have demonstrated a professional, friendly and local feel with a personal approach.
Even with my expletives (swearing), you were able to understand your customer and the stress by all with this sale.
Of note, we have had a business relationship with Stonnington Conveyancing since 1999 and this purchase has now represented our fourth transaction.
I hope to do business again with you in the future.
Many thanks again.
Tom has just advised that settlement has gone through for Collins St.
I just wanted to say a big thank you on behalf of Rod and myself for the thorough service that you have provided.
Please thank Tom also.
Have a great day and I look forward to dealing with you again in the future
Dearest Garvin & Paul,
I just wanted to thank you both for such a marvelous job on my flat. I so appreciated your friendly, approachable, clear and dedicated work. Also I was told, because I dont drink myself, that the wine was excellent.
Thanks again and all the very best.
Many thanks to you and Garvin for,as usual, a very smooth and efficient transaction
Hi there Garvin,
I hope all is well with you and Paul.
As a result of the recent purchase of a unit, I was introduced to Stonnington Conveyancing through Estate Agent Barry Plant's Blackburn office.
I was very pleased with the quality of service that Paul and Garvin provided right from the initial conversation through to settlement I found them to be very professional; they pay attention to detail and are definitely knowledgeable in all matters relating to conveyancing.
If the need arose, I would definitely utilise their services again and would have no hesitation in recommending Stonnington Conveyancing to a family member or friend if they were looking for someone to assist them with a property sale or purchase.
Thanks very much for all your work. You were fantastic. I have been singing your praises to friends, so hopefully at some stage you may get some referrals.
All the best,
I knew I could rely on you, hence why I put mum onto you. She gets so excited that sometimes you can't talk sense to her (he he). I remember how much you helped me with mine when I had no idea what the hell I was doing.
You're the best.
You're the best Paul. I can also give you a cheque for your services that day.
You guys are fantastic. Have a great Xmas.
Craig and Emma Buchanan
I've put the payment for your fees through this morning.
Just like to thank you all again for your wonderful work, as always professional and efficient (and fun too!)
You are amazing. I cannot thank you enough and when this is all over I am coming to visit you with a beautiful bottle of red wine. You are the most competent, proficient person I have come across in my many years in this business.
It's so good to find ethical people these days. I hope you get lots of additional business from this testimonial.
Garvin has been helpful also. :-)

Thank you so much for the long awaited moment of news! Wow!
I really appreciate your terrific support and communication. You have made our transition to Melbourne as best as it can.
With kind regards and best wishes
Thanks very much Garvin (and Paul),
Great stuff and thanks so much for your help (again). Really appreciate it! Especially when it's hard me being overseas.
Paul Garson is the man to speak to - we have used him twice and he is excellent, so thorough if there is anything slightly amiss he will find it!

You are both legends!
I will be recommending you to anyone I hear is looking for property. Have already done so - they just need to purchase something!
Senior Jewellery Specialist - Leonard Joel
Paul, Mark and Garvin - Stonnington Conveyancing / Melbourne Buyers Advocates helped me to get a great deal with our last property purchase. We had a great experience with Stonnington Conveyancing / Melbourne Buyers Advocates and I can speak from the past with regards to their work ethic, professionalism, and passion for a good outcome for clients. I trust their judgement.
Hi Garvin and Paul,
Thanks very much for all your efforts on the purchase of our land. We have really appreciated your excellent advice and service and look forward to working with you again when we sell our current home.
Sam and Jenny
Thank you for all your help and kindness. It was nice to deal with Stonnington Conveyancing again.
You really showed you were on our side.
Whew! - Thanks Garvin, appreciate your personal attention and flexibility!
Thank you for your able assistance. I have appreciated your friendly, capable manner on the telephone.
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Paul and Garvin as conveyancers. Their competence, service and great communication were very welcomed during the rather arduous process of subdivision and building two houses. Most importantly, they achieved results! It's been a pleasure working with them.
Good afternoon Garvin,
I just wanted to thank you and Paul for all of your help during the settlement of 48 Ebden St Brighton.
There were a couple of hickups, no doubt made worse by my location in Qatar, but we got there in the end.
There is no doubt in my mind that the process would not have gone as smoothly as it did without the help of you and Paul.
Again, appreciate all of you help and look forward to dealing with you again on the next property
Regards, Roger Fatovic
Dear Paul and Garvin,
Just wanted to pass on a massive thanks for all of your efforts over the last few months. Following settlement on Tuesday, things have moved quickly. We had our first open for inspection on the Wednesday evening with new tenants signing at one year lease at $375pw today.
Wouldn't have any hesitation recommending your services.
Thanks again for all your help. You guys have been great.
I will definately recommend my friend to your service in the future.
We are very happy with your service, and will recommend you to others..
Once again, thanks to Amy & yourself for your professional and courteous approach during the sale and purchase process.
Thanks again for all your help with this process - it's been great to have a guiding hand through the legal maze of first home buying.
As per our previous dealings with you we cannot thank you enough for your timely, thorough work and for helping our settlement go so smoothly. It is always a pleasure doing business with you and we would not hesitate to recommend you to prospective clients.
Richard and Meredith.
Paul is the Director of Stonnington Conveyancing and I have been dealing with him for over 5 years (both on personal matters and clients I have referred to him).
He and Garvin are without doubt the most professional, thorough and diligent conveyancers I have ever dealt with. Unfortunately in our industry sometimes things can go awry (Banks, Vendor's Agents etc can all make mistakes). Paul and his team simply refuse to accept second best and work passionately to ensure the best possible outcomes on behalf of their clients.
If it sounds like I'm a "fan boy" it's because I am!
Alf Neubauer, Associate Member MFAA, Dip FMBM Personal Mortgage Adviser
Thank you very much for your assistance on Friday. We very much appreciated your taking the time at short notice. Hopefully we find another property soon and again call on your very helpful service.
With thanks, Kelly & Peter Lukies
Thank you for all the hard work you put in to settle the land, we are very happy with the service both Paul and yourself provided every step of the way.
Kind regards, Leanne

...I would highly recommend Paul and would most certainly never undertake this process without his wisdom and support.

Transferred the funds for the Pre-Signing & Owners Corp Report today. Best $275.00 I ever spent!
Information is power and that Pre-Signing document and your pre-Auction "coaching" gave me the power to be ready for all possible auction scenarios and do what I needed to do.
Chat soon, Bruce
Thank you so much for all of your great work. It was fabulous knowing that everything was being done by you and James - people we could trust completely
Elaine & Rob McNamara
Dear Paul & James,
Thank you so much for all your work, communication and professional service. I know it wasnt at the easiest time for you, but you didn't let me down - for that I am very grateful
Regards Liz Denniston
Thank you Paul.
We really value how you are always putting our interest first.
You're a star.

It has been a pleasure to work on this contract with you. Your attention to detail, but also a willingness to provide support in the evening time for the benefit of your client in my experience is unusual, for this I thank you.
Eview Real Estate Partners - Frankston (October 2010)
I got James' message confirming settlement for 21 Menzies Crescent today and I've received the funds as expected.
I just wanted to pass on my thanks again - this is now our second transfer via Stonnington as well as having referred a few other friends and every one has been handled professionally and gone through without issue.
Well, what can I say? Merci.
Dealing with people who know the real meaning of Integrity and Respect makes it such a good experience.
No matter how positive or negative will the outcome be, it feels good to be dealing with professionals like yourself who fights for their clients and stand by their words.
Hi Paul, James,
It has been a hectic but exciting week last week for us when moving into the new property. Has been waiting for so long for the day.
I would like to say thank you very much for all your valuable time, great diligence and excellent assistance to make the transfer so smooth. It is very professional.
Look forward to seeing you and working with you again in the future. TX again.

Both Rob and I would like to thank you sincerely for all of the great work you did in our conveyancing. It was so fantastic to have it go so smoothly. ... We appreciate all you have done for us, thank you once again. We are so happy to be finally settled in a home we absolutely love. All the best.....
Carla & Rob Armstrong. July 2009
Thanks. You are worth your weight in gold. You picked up on some things I wouldnt have noticed.
I write to thank you for your excellent work and role in selling our property - we had immediate feed-back from the buyer that they were sold on our backyard which was a very important issue for our complex property arrangement - thanks for all of your hard work and contribution to getting the best possible price!
Jason and Nicole.
Just wanted to say 'thank you' for organising settlement etc to go through so smoothly. We have begun to move in (slowly) and are very happy with our new home! Have a lovely Christmas and we wish you and Paul all the best for a very happy and successful 2009.
Philippa and Robert Smith.
Thank you so much for your assistance! You have been outstanding!
It has been a long week for me to organise the stuff for my new place since last week. I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your effort to help me through the final stage of my home searching. I am happy to know that your professional knowledge does help me a great deal on my decision making.
Please also send my regards to James and thankyou for his patience on my urgent instructions and all sorts of "dramas" that I put him through.
Wish all the best for both of you :)

Just a quick note to thank you for your friendly &

which is being auctioned on the 16/4 and am interested in having you look at the paperwork etc. before I decide to bid.
S. Johnston Surrey Hills 2005
... I have to tell you I am so grateful to yourself particularly but Tara too, for all your hard work.
You have been amazing ... and made such a difference to me in this stressful time (trying to buy).
Knowing I could send you contracts, e-mail you or phone with anything was worth every cent
plus more. I really felt like you were a guardian angel looking after my best interests, and that is a rare thing in this day and age.
THANK YOU PAUL.
