Testimonials

Ray Kastropil


I recently purchased 8 Charles Street which Stefanie Dobro and Michael Harries had listed for sale. I thought it would be appropriate to accept a request to send a short email about my experience.

I cannot fault Stefanie's service, consideration and professionalism. She orchestrated an offer process that was open and efficient, was understanding and compassionate during a period of extreme anxiety I had subsequent to offer acceptance, and was able to remain patient and respectful when a structural issue was identified during building inspection. I am grateful for her honesty and genuine care throughout the entire sale process.
Both Michael and Stefanie have been extremely helpful in all our property enquiries over the past few years and this sale process has consolidated my impressions of them both.

Ingrid & Nick Ganfield


We decided to list our property with Stefanie Dobro recently after much deliberation. We had a specific list of agent requirements and Stefanie met them with her personable, obliging and can do attitude. She made sure that we as clients were comfortable in the selling process of our home which can be a very stressful time. Stefanie suggested an Auction which was a first for us and it turned out to be a great experience. She recommended an excellent auctioneer and we sold on the day! With her support, sound advice and positive nature I would not hesitate in using Stefanie's expertise in the future. Thanks again - Stefanie.

NATARSHA RAWLINS


Thank you so much for all your hard work. We know that behind every great estate agent is a great team. You were always incredibly prompt, efficient and friendly.

Esther Price


I write to extend my appreciation for the exceptional and professional service provided by CY and in particular Stefanie Dobro and her assistant Zoe.

We engaged Stefanie to sell my house in South Fremantle in what I thought to be a tough market.
Not only did she achieve a very quick sale for us, she extracted more than I had expected out of the market place.
The period between acceptance of offer and settlement (the least fun time) was difficult with the buyer throwing up a number of hurdles.
I would suggest that if it wasn’t for Stefanie’s astute handling of the matters during this time, it would have fallen through.
At no time was the eye off the ball after acceptance of offer and I think in fact she and her team put in even more time during this period to go the extra mile to ensure settlement.
I couldn’t be happier with the result.
You have an awesome team there.

Trish Christian


Selling a house is never easy but Stefanie made the process smooth and comfortable. It was also made a little more challenging because there were two parties involved in selling. She communicated to both when necessary and was diligent in her attempts to secure a sale. I appreciated her efforts. Thanks Stefanie.

Clare Rees & Lesley Bell


"We researched our options carefully before approaching Stefanie and Michael. We were aware that we needed agents with a strong team around them and excellent marketing strategies to maximise the exposure of our property. We were aware of Stefanie's highly developed skills in negotiating the best possible price and to our delight this is exactly what was achieved for our property. Stefanie and Michael are the epitome of professionalism, they never sugar-coated anything and instead gave us accurate and comprehensive information. We recommend them to anyone who is looking for the best possible result delivered in a highly professional manner."

Jessica Scott


I found Stefanie to be very helpful, proactive and professional.  She is obviously passionate about East Fremantle and I appreciated her enthusiasm.  I am very happy with my purchase to date and would not hesitate in recommending her to others looking in this area.  Thanks to Caporn Young we are settled before Christmas - hallelujah!:)

Ben & Parisa De Jonge


Yay! We just went unconditional on our new home! Thanks so much to Mick, Stefanie, Zoe and the team at Caporn Young. They have all been fantastic, all the way through. Thanks so much guys, we are very grateful, excited and looking forward to the big move. Legends!

E.F.P.S. - P & C (and Kate)


Thank you so much for your generous donation of two bottles of veuve. You should also be congratulated on attending and driving a camel to the Quiz Night. It's a strange world and all the better for you being a part of it.


We appreciate your continued support of our school.

Tania & Cameron


We just wanted to pass on our thanks to Stefanie and Michael for the sale of our house in what we thought was going to be a difficult market to sell.

We were impressed by their professional yet warm and friendly manner. They, together with Zoe, make a great sales team. We were in the UK when the house was being marketed yet they kept in close touch with us despite the time difference, checking and sending emails at unsocial hours Perth time in order for negotiations to progress. They worked very hard on our behalf to get us the best possible result and we would not hesitate to recommend them to others. 

Jon


I am pleased to be able to provide a testimonial for Stefanie.

She is the most responsive, knowledgeable and dedicated agent I have ever worked with.

Stefanie sold two houses for me and both have sold quickly and above my expected price.

She has an extensive network of clients and remains in contact with them all.  This is critical to her success as she always has a pool of willing buyers and understands their needs.

This leads to quick sales – I sold one house at the first private viewing!

Most notable about Stefanie is her lack of self-interest.  Stefanie assisted me greatly with my decision making around the purchase of my last two homes despite them not being listed by her.

She consequently lost me as a prospective buyer on her list but was more interested in me finding the home best suited to my requirements.

Stefanie is an outstanding agent and deserves her success. 

Emma


Stefanie and Michael provided a highly professional service, they made the whole process of buying a house easy and everything ran smoothly. Before I knew it I was living in my dream home.

Ann & Steve


Stefanie Dobro and the team worked out an excellent sale strategy. We weren’t initially sure that an auction on election day would really work. We accepted the advice to go with a short selling period and July 2nd auction, we were kept up-to-date all the way through and the outcome was beyond what we had hoped for and expected.

Zoe Ware’s assistance with appointments and details was meticulous and Michael Harries’ briefings about the auction process gave us growing confidence that all was in hand. It went so smoothly on the day. Delighted seller and, we were told, delighted buyer!
We will be speaking with Stephanie today about the sale of our Riverside Road and I will mention this suggestion to her in this process.
We certainly have been delighted with CY’s customer service and attentiveness at every point and look forward to working with the sales team for this next step with the Riverside Road sale.

Bianca & David


Stefanie and Michael achieved a great result for the sale of our house in Fremantle. They are extremely efficient and professional, and provided a constant flow of activity and communication throughout the entire process. They took our house to Auction and it sold on that first day, without needing to go to market by normal sale. We were very happy with all of the work they did and the results they achieved. If you are looking to sell your home then we would definitely recommend that you use Stefanie and Michael and their team.

Sanja & Warren


As we all know selling the family home can be quite a stressful and uncertain time. We were wanting the best possible result for our property, with the least amount of pain possible.

Right from our first meeting with Stefanie and Michael they made us feel as though we had made the right choice. They were both completely professional, enthusiastic and energetic, and that approach never wavered throughout the whole process.
They provide us with the services of a stylist who made us feel as though we had everything looking at its best and ready to sell. Backed by a great team and advertising campaign, the numbers we had going through our home from the very first home open gave us confidence in the process.
Stefanie and Michael make you feel that they are working really hard to get the best result for everybody involved, not just themselves. I would recommend Team Dobro to anyone we know that’s looking to sell. Their integrity and professionalism is to be commended. It also has to be mentioned that Stefanie’s strong competitive drive makes her a winner and not surprisingly highly awarded.
A lot of time is spent working together throughout the campaign. At the end of it all, it’s true to say, that we have the utmost admiration and respect for both Michael and Stefanie both personally and as selling agents.

Gabi & Gareth Willis


We had met Stefanie at a few open houses in the years prior to selling our house and were struck by how friendly and engaging she was compared to other agents. When we came to sell we considered several agents but were most impressed with Caporn Young's marketing strategy and approach to the sale. The marketing materials and house photos showed the house in its best possible light and we had lots of interest. We sold very quickly and had several offers on the table. The process of selling with Stefanie and Michael was very smooth and they were both a pleasure to deal with. They both went above and beyond to achieve the best possible price. We would have no hesitation in using them again or recommending to others.

Amy & Andrew Collins-Walker


Stefanie & Michael were a great team with a high degree of professionalism & dedication to selling our home. They always went the extra mile. To say they are hard-working would be an understatement. In what was a drawn out negotiation process and not the best market to sell in, they handled it exceptionally well and we are very happy with the outcome.

Lloyd & Natacha


Dear Stefanie and Michael,

A very belated but sincere thank you for the wonderful effort you put into selling our investment property at 1 Arundel St. Fremantle earlier this year.

Natacha and I initially chose Stefanie because of your wonderful reputation in our area, but were equally pleased with Michael’s professionalism and dedication  You both have wonderful marketing insight, negotiation and communication skills, not to mention a level of enthusiasm that leave other realtors for dead.

I would recommend Caporn Young, particularly Stefanie Dobro and Michael Harries, to anyone looking to get the best for the sale of their property.  It’s by far the best experience we’ve had when it comes to dealing with realtors in WA and Victoria.

As an aside, Natacha and I also really enjoyed getting to know you both.  In addition to your professional expertise, you were always great fun to have around.

Thanks again.

Alex & Jude


Dealing with Stefanie and her team at CapornYoung made the difficult and stressful job of selling our home after 15 years so much easier for us to manage.

We were selling into a difficult market at a difficult time and Stefanie had to work really hard to achieve our objectives.
The old adage “ when the going gets tough, the tough get going” really applies to Stefanie and it is little wonder that she is a Grandmaster.
She never gave up and worked tirelessly from the start to the end of the process.
On top of all that she is a delightful character and it has been a great pleasure to have dealt with her.
We would have no hesitation in using her and Caporn/Young again if the circumstances allowed.

Mark Toomath


Stefanie is an easy-going, patient and fun person to work with. She has a detailed knowledge of the property market in East Fremantle and offered sound advice during the entire purchasing process. Stefanie had a genuine interest in our family which made our property buying experience a pleasant one. We couldn't be happier with our investment or with the service we received. We would certainly recommend Stefanie and her team at Caporn Young to others.

Sally Hepworth


Dear Stefanie, Michael and Zoe

We would like to express our sincere thanks with your assistance regarding the purchase of our new home.

From our very first contact with Caporn Young to settlement (yesterday!), you have surpassed our expectations.

If it wasn’t for the super-Stefanie Dobro, who: met with us to write our offer on a Saturday afternoon, drove around Perth on a wet Saturday night to get both sellers signatures and then met with us at 10:30pm that evening in the city to finalise everything before I got on a boat the next day, it’s fair to say, we would never have been able to secure this property. We can’t thank-you enough for your willingness to go the extra mile for us in this regard, Stefanie.  

Following this, we were impressed with the efficient, friendly and highly professional, Zoe Ware.  Zoe managed all administration, appointments and contact with the utmost efficiency. She would keep us up to date with where all requests were at (regarding access, paperwork etc) and knowing that Zoe was following up any requests instantly put our minds at rest.

In Stefanie’s absence, Michael Harries assisted with our final phase and was so impressive as well.   We had some maintenance requests and Michael really went above and beyond to listen to what was important to us and assist with organising this request on our day of settlement to ensure a happy outcome for all.

We could not recommend Caporm Young highly enough.  Stefanie Dobro, Zoe Ware and Michael Harries are exceptional and have been so impressive throughout our buying process.

Sally and James (buyers, East Fremantle, May 2016)

Sally & James Hepworth


We have your amazing agent, Stefanie Dobro to thank for our purchase. If it wasn't for her over and above efforts (we signed our offer and acceptance with Stefanie at 11pm on a Saturday night!), we would never have been able to secure our new home. We will be sure to give a rave review of Caporn Young, the amazing Stefanie and Zoe - who has been wonderful throughout the process.

 
Congratulations on creating such a strong and truly best in class agency. We are so impressed.
Regards, Sally & James Hepworth

Alex Edgar


Just a note of thanks from myself to the 3 of you for the professional and courteous manner in which you have engaged and communicated throughout this whole process. Expectations were well managed in light of weaker market conditions and I felt very comfortable with the advice and feedback you provided.

 
Thanks again!

Karen & Rob


Stefanie and Michael have been easy to deal with and have eased the process of selling our home. The have been both patient and helpful. We would definitely recommend them. I hope the new owners are happy in their new home as we were for many years. 

 
Many thanks for everything,
Karen and Rob

Francis Burke


We were happy with selling our property at the price point we were aiming for, which in this market is not often achieved.

Both Michael and Stefanie were responsive and worked hard for every lead.

We would recommend Stefanie and Michael at Caporn Young to sell our next property.

Kate & Jamie Nancarrow


Working with Stefanie Dobro to sell our family home, and some months later purchase a block in East Fremantle was a great experience. Stef was professional, friendly and went the extra mile to ensure we were kept informed and satisfied throughout the process. I loved coming home to find a bottle of French champagne at our door one day. An personal thank you from Stefanie for our business. I now feel like we have a realtor for life and would recommend her services to anyone looking at buying or selling in the Fremantle area. We have already signed Stefanie up to sell our investment property in early 2017. Stefanie always has one finger on the real estate pulse and the other on her mobile phone. Her hard work and business acumen helped us to get to where we wanted to be.

Thanks Stef.

Matt Hankin


Stefanie made the potentially stressful decision to buy both a new home, and sell our existing one very easy. Her communication and care throughout the whole process was fantastic, and we greatly appreciated her focus during, but also afterwards. Thanks Stefanie and Caporn Young.

Jamie & Kate Nancarrow


We sold our property in Hamilton Hill through Stefanie, have recently bought through Stefanie and Stefanie has also helped us find our rental property. Stefanie has always been very open and up front and honest, which is a quality we love. I remember our very first conversation with Stefanie where she asked us what we wanted and we said honesty. She was as open and honest as she could have been with us. We have a lot of trust and respect for her. We value everything that she has had to say along the way. The advice we were given was great. It has been a great relationship and we thank Stefanie for the work and effort she has put in.

Melanie Browne


Dear Stefanie, thank you so much for all of the hard work you put in to selling our house.  We felt confident knowing you were there with us every step of the way, and appreciate all that you and your team did to make it happen.  Your energy and professionalism made it a pleasure to work with you.  We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to others, kind regards, Paul and Mel

Pete Rees


We are happy to say that we appreciated Stefanie’s efforts in finding our new home.  She had extensive knowledge on the Fremantle and East Fremantle area the Capron Young team were professional to deal with and helpful in the process of purchase and settlement.

Felicity Clarke & Oliver Waters


Among the very high caliber of real estate agents in Fremantle, we are very happy that we chose Stefanie Dobro and Michael Harries. Their professionalism and knowledge of the Fremantle area is second to none. They are people’s people and were excellent to deal with. Their knowledge of the market meant that they got us the result that we hoped for. We highly recommend them and we will use them again next time we go to market.

Pam


I was very impressed with Stefanie's professionalism, knowledge of the market and her charming personality. All aspects of the sale process were explained clearly and expeditiously handled. I felt every confidence in accepting her assessment as to the offer accepted prior to auction. I highly recommend Stefanie as THE agent to be engaged by anyone wishing to sell a property.

Pam

Regan Whyte


Stefanie's quality of service was excellent and the communication was great too!
Handling of enquires was done well with superb professionalism.
Presentation was excellent and I found Stefanie to be very approachable and friendly.

I would certainly use Stefanie Dobro again.

Regards Regan Whyte

PETER PAINO


I was impressed with the professionalism shown by Stefanie, Michael and the Caporn Young team.

From the initial marketing strategy, home inspections advice and achieving the sale, the service provided was exceptional.

The buyer was also happy and even commented that we had a good Agent. I am pleased to recommend them to any vendor as good Real Estate Agents.

 

Regards,

PETER PAINO

This is just a note regarding how impressed I was with my dealings with Stefanie Dobro re 3/168 Forrest st. I flew from melbourne to perth on the weekend of the 29/30/31 october to view properties to buy for investment in the short term and for us to move into in 4-5 yrs. I contacted real estate agents in the two weeks leading up to my visit to arrange viewings of my short listed properties. Some have still failed to return my emails and calls, (amazing in this buyers market). I was very grateful to Stefanie for opening the 3/168 property over the long weekend and with her professionalism and organisation. She was equipped with the answers to all my questions and had the best material available re sales in the area, house plans etc. (i had to draw plans myself for two of the houses which i found unbelievable in this day and age of technology). I have since purchased a property in north fremantle, as after much discussion with my husband, we increased our budget over the $600 000 mark and decided to focus more on location. However, i was very impressed with the 3/168 forrest st house and think it is sitting in a reasonable price bracket. If we had stuck to our original under $600 budget it would have been at the top of my list. I viewed 13 houses on the saturday and 2 on the sunday, and can honestly say that there were only 3 agents out of 15 who impressed. Some were, to be frank, very ordinary. So best of luck to Stefanie for a quick sale. Regards, Avril Williams

Nathan Speed


Stefanie was an absolute joy to work with on the recent purchase of our new home.  From the first time Stefanie showed us a prospective property she was genuine and considerate without ever being pushy or forceful, and she maintained that approach as she worked tirelessly with us over the months that followed, until we found the perfect home.  If I’m buying a home again, I would hope to deal with Stefanie, and without a shadow of a doubt, if I’m selling a house she is the first agent I would call. A true professional! 

Kind regards, Nathan Speed. 

Alex & Cam Wilson


We sold our principal residence with Stefanie and Team Dobro over two years ago prior to it even hitting the open market for a great price. Recently we had to reluctantly sell an investment property and we wanted to secure the best possible price in the market for our future plans. Stefanie and Michael went above and beyond the call of duty by driving around the southern suburbs until 11pm to secure the best offer for us from prospective buyers that emerged after the auction.

Bothering to go this extraordinary extra mile for a relatively lower priced property was extremely impressive and secured us $40,000 over the closing auction price. The advertising campaign was exceptional and we secured a more than solid price for our investment. All the staff of Team Dobro are friendly and highly competent and accessible - they make a stressful experience run smoothly. We will not be going to any other company in the future.

Michael Wendt


I just want to say how impressed I was with Stefanie and her conduct with my house sale. She was professional along with her staff and achieved a good result considering the housing market at present.

I was also very  impressed with the auctioneer and his overall conduct.

Michael Wendt

Claire Cooper & Andrew Miller


We would like to pass on our extreme gratitude and appreciation for the recent work of Stefanie Dobro in finding us our dream home. Having relocated to Perth from Victoria we were fruitlessly looking for a replacement to our beloved 1920's character house we had reluctantly sold back home. That was, until Serendipity put us in Stefanie's hands. Our first plan of action was to familiarise ourselves with the suburbs we wished to live in by attending a few 'Open for Inspections'. Stefanie was the first Agent with whom we felt comfortable with, by engaging us immediately and then tactfully and efficiently asking what is was we were looking for. Upon hearing our brief description she announced she had the perfect house fitting our wish list, but at the time it was not officially on the market. As soon as I stepped over the threshold I knew she was right. Unfortunately our first offer was rejected, and initially we walked away and considered other properties. Not once did we feel pressured by Stefanie's expert tactics. She was never overbearing, demanding or overzealous in her communication with us and always responded to contacts in an extremely timely manner. We felt we could trust her and that she genuinely worked for the best outcome for BOTH parties. Needless to say, we renegotiated. Thank you once again Stefanie, you certainly excel at your Vocation. With much admiration, Claire Cooper and Andrew Miller

Georgie


Hi Stefanie We just got home from dinner to find that Norfolk st is unconditional!! Yay!! I will give you a call tomorrow to congratulate you in person. Just wanted to say that we have been so impressed by you from the very beginning and your motivation and perseverance has been inspirational. You have totally redeemed the CY name in our book and when we buy or sell again I hope it's through you. Congratulations on selling our beloved ice works home twice!! In less time than it's taken everyone else in the ice works to sell their property once!! That should tell you everything! Yay!! Many thanks Georgie

Claire Prendergast


Hi Richard, We sought appraisals from two agents and decided to list with Stefanie Dobro even though she set a lower expectation of the price we could potentially achieve. She appeared much more genuine in her approach and certainly came across as very knowledgeable and trustworthy. We are extremely pleased that chose to sell through Stefanie as she achieved a good result in a timely manner and met our expectations. Her communication was above and beyond expectations and she always kept us well informed. Regards, Claire Prendergast

JANE DAVIES


To reiterate, thank you for all your hard work. You made, whilst living abroad and trying to sell our home in Perth, an effortless experience and journey! I cannot thank you enough. Your expertise, professionalism, promptness and personable skills are second to none. Caporn Young must recognise what an asset you are:) we do! Rest assured, if ever, we are thinking about buying an apartment on the river, we will have no hesitation in coming through you! Well done and thank you, once again!

Tania Burge, Foley Burge Conveyancing


Just wanted to say a massive thank you for drafting the really well drafted agreement. Not many Real Estate Agents would take the initiative and pull off such a great agreement. Thanks.

Sai & Linda Fong


We recently listed our South Fremantle property with Stefanie. From the initial consultation to the expeditious sale we were nothing but impressed. She was honest, friendly, reliable and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble we were interstate during a home open and she even put the rubbish bins back into the garage! Thanks Stefanie for a job well done! We would have no hesitation in recommending her and Team Dobro to friends and colleagues who are buying or selling in the area.

Graeme Rattigan


Stefanie has always conducted herself with absolute professionalism and an energy that inspires confidence. I have recommended her to a number of prospective sellers with the full confidence that she will work tirelessly in their best interests.

Chiara Pacifici


Stefanie is unique. She has the ability to think outside the box and is passionate about doing things well, the first time round. She does what she says she will do and delivers results. Stefanie's dedication to sustainability is also to be commended, along with her passion to be an environmentally conscious practitioner.

PETER, RUBY & HUGO HAMILTON


Some people are just a perfect fit for the work they do. Stefanie is one of those people. She's a natural at engaging people, understanding what they want and helping them find the right place for them. That's how it was for us. Stefanie saved us from a bad purchase we were about to make and matched us up with something that was just right for us. We couldn't have had a more professional service. Well done Stefanie!

LESLEY & BARRIE


It is a pleasure to say Stefanie did a wonderful job in selling our Rule St home. Stef has a lovely personality & is a real people person. Stefanie worked tirelessly with home opens & inspections, when we had a very difficult market. She was rewarded with the sale of Rule St, at a time most important to us. The sale enabled us to purchase our present home at "The Leighton" Thank you Stefanie. We congratulate on your success & we wish you all the best for your future.

BENGT


Thank you very much for a job really well done. You fulfilled all my expectations of an excellent realtor. You and your team were fast, efficient and straight to the point on how you were going to handle the sale of the property. In addition to your local knowledge of the Fremantle area, one of my top selection criteria, I was convinced I would be treated to a first class job. Thanks again and all the best.

JON AND TAMSIN M


We have been very fortunate to have Stefanie as our Real Estate agent for both the purchase of our new house and the sale of our previous property. She goes out of her way to be of assistance and regularly went above and beyond the call of duty to meet with us any time we needed. Stefanie always treated us as more than just clients with a friendly, thoughtful and personal demeanor while maintaining the upmost professionalism. Her attention to detail was no doubt a factor in the smooth process our new home purchase and we are confident that her efforts went a long way towards securing the sale of our other property. We are glad that we had Stefanie on our side throughout what could have been a very stressful period, and we are lucky to have her now as our new neighbour.

WAYNE S


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to say a few words about Stefanie. As a person who works in the property industry I fully understand how stressful & emotional it is to sell your property. In a fickle market, both my wife and I wanted to get the best possible price in the shortest possible time. Stefanie delivered on all fronts as we achieved a fair price and sold our home in the 2nd week of our marketing campaign. Stefanie's strong work ethic was best displayed on the night we negotiated our sale. At 8.50pm on a cold wintry mid week night, I received a phone call from Stefanie asking me if it was ok if she could come over as she had an offer to present. Although I was about to go to sleep, I told her to come over so we could see where the offer was at. In the space of a few hours Stefanie earned her fee with her excellent negotiation skills, the deal was finally signed off by the purchaser at about 11.30pm. As a working mother with a young family, it would of been so easy for Stefanie to present us the offer 1st thing the next day. Both my wife and I fully appreciated Stefanie's commitment to go that extra mile to get the deal done. We would strongly recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home. Steve, as an outsider looking in I have always had a lot of respect for your firm. Both you and Richard should be proud of what you have achieved. Good luck in the future and hopefully we will all be able trade well through this tough market.

DEAN V


I just tried to call you again but I got your answering machine. I wanted to thank you more personally for all of your work, as you really did a wonderful job and always acted very kindly and professionally. With the difficulties that we had in settling the estate, we were so fortunate to have help from someone like you and both Peter and I are very grateful for that. I hope that we can stay in touch as I would like to meet you next time I am in Perth. And, of course, when you come to Florence it would be my pleasure to show you around! Also, if you have Facebook please feel free to add me if you would like to keep in touch that way. I wish you much further success in your career, and I have no doubt that you will continue to do very well in your profession.

MARK & ANNA W


Recently we sold our home at 117 George Street, East Fremantle through Caporn Young and selected Stefanie Dobro as our Agent. I'm sure you are already well aware of the fantastic job and commitment that both Stephanie and her assistant, Jennifer Crossan show when selling a property but both my wife and myself were amazed at the extra effort both put into making our sale go through with very few issues. We always felt that we were receiving genuine advice with all things taking into consideration with both the sale of 117 George and the purchase of 77 Hubble. Nothing in life is perfect, more so in the sale and purchase of a house but the issues that were encountered were dealt with effectively and in a timely manner and we always felt that we were being kept 100% informed. Both Stephanie and Jennifer are a true asset to your team and would recommend them to anyone considering buying or selling in the area. If you would like any further info or to use this in advertising please feel free to do so. We were 100% satisfied with the service we received from a quality company and two quality individual in Stefanie and Jennifer.

I write to express our appreciation of the effort Stefanie Dobro invested in selling our home recently at 20 Allen St, East Fremantle. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout the process and her attention to detail and interpersonal skills are above and beyond expectation. She is highly professional and diligent in pursuing every possible buyer and we were impressed by her regular communication with us. We felt informed and confident at all times that Stefanie was working to achieve the best outcome for us. We would be pleased to recommend her to anyone planning to sell their home!

We used Stefanie to sell our house in White Gum Valley. It was a character cottage that would appeal to a certain buyer but would probably not be suitable for everyone. Stefanie was able to bring buyers that she knew would be interested in that style of property so was able quickly and efficiently sell the property but not waste anybody's time. The work that Stefanie put into helping us to present the property, setting our expectations of how it would work and tailoring the way it was offered was extremely professional and got the results in three days. I would recommend Stefanie if you are planning to sell your home.

It is perhaps a little unusual for a purchaser to write commending the efforts of an agent who was acting on behalf of the seller, but Stefanie is an unusual agent. She negotiated the sale with complete integrity and showed a reassuring expertise in dealing with those myriad of small but important details. She always responded quickly to any email or phone call and was more than happy to deal with our queries. Her professionalism helped to reduce the inevitable stress associated with the purchase of a new family home.

Stefanie Dobro is an exceptional agent. Stefanie first impressed us with her persuasive manner, excellent communication skills and professionalism when we met her as prospective buyers of one of her properties. Having met with a number of experienced agents prior to listing our home, it was readily apparent to us that Stefanie was far and away the best agent - her professionalism, warmth, integrity, drive, practicality, candour and specialised knowledge of the Fremantle/East Fremantle area are unparalleled. The purchase of our next home was subject the sale of our property, which meant listing, styling, drawing up plans, photographing and advertising our home within extremely tight timeframes. Stefanie coordinated an incredibly efficient and effective sale campaign. The members of her team are as hardworking, talented, efficient and responsive as she is. It was a pleasure to work with each of them. In every instance Stefanie and her team exceeded our expectations. When the subject to sale clause on our prospective property was invoked, putting us under even more pressure, we did wonder whether it would be possible to achieve a sale in the circumstances and for a price that enabled us to complete our other transaction. Stefanie worked tirelessly, maintained her positive attitude and ultimately achieved what very few agents would have been able to - a sale, within 48 hours, at the right price. We cannot recommend Stefanie highly enough. Thanks to her, we were able to achieve a fantastic outcome in challenging circumstances. Stefanie is an outstanding agent and an absolute pleasure to work with, whether you are a vendor or buyer.

I would like to express our thanks to Stephanie Dobro and the rest of the Caporn Young (CY) team on the recent successful sale of our house at 99 Fraser St, Bicton. The service was first class from the effective marketing strategy right down to the way Stephanie communicated the strategy and progress to us with any interested parties. I must admit I was very impressed when I compared the quality of the sales leaflets CY produced with that of the agent when we initially bought the property, it was like comparing chalk and cheese. Stephanie in her approach to discussing the sale of the house clearly explained to us that correctly pricing the property would be the key to a fruitful outcome. Prior to speaking to Stephanie, we had spoken to other real estate agents in the area and the figures for their evaluations they were quoting, while appreciably higher, we felt were also rather optimistic rather realistic. At no time did we get that feeling with Stephanie. We were very mindful of the fact that we did not want to have a house on the market for months on end by pricing it unrealistically high and having to gradually bring the price down to the expectations of the market. Having said that, it came as quite a shock that it only took one mid-week twilight sneak peak, followed by one Saturday open house and no listed price for Stephanie to get the sale and set us on the path of looking for a new abode. We got the price we were seeking and we are very happy to boot. Once again many thanks to the efforts of the whole CY team, but particularly Stephanie Dobro for the rewarding outcome.

We have been very fortunate to have Stefanie as our Real Estate agent for both the purchase of our new house and the sale of our previous property. She goes out of her way to be of assistance and regularly went above and beyond the call of duty to meet with us any time we needed.

Stefanie always treated us as more than just clients with a friendly, thoughtful and personal demeanor while maintaining the upmost professionalism. Her attention to detail was no doubt a factor in the smooth process our new home purchase was and we are confident her efforts went a long way towards securing the sale of our other property.

We are glad that we had Stefanie on our side throughout what could have been a very stressful period, and we are lucky to have her now as our new neighbour.

Sincerely,

Jon and Tamsin Moore

As a person who works in the property industry I fully understand how stressful and emotional it is to sell your property. In a fickle market, both my wife and I wanted to get the best possible price in the shortest possible time. Stefanie delivered on all fronts as displayed on the night we negotiated our sale. At 8:50pm on a cold wintry mid week night, I received a phone call from Stefanie asking me if it was ok if she could come over as she had an offer to present. Although I was about to go to sleep, I told her to come over so we could see where the offer was at. In the space of a few hours Stefanie earned her fee with her excellent negotiation skills, the deal was finally signed off by the purchaser at about 11.30pm. As a working mother with a young family, it would have been so easy for Stefanie to present us the offer 1st thing the next day. Both my wife and I fully appreciated Stefanie's commitment to go that extra mile to get the deal done. We would strongly recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home.

Denise & Mick Ross


I cannot praise Stefanie Dobro enough with the way she handles herself, both for the seller and the buyer. She has a knack of making both parties feel just as important as the other and when a sale is closing in she works tirelessly to make it happen. Her energy levels are amazing. For many years I have used another agent, but she was away on holidays at the time so we used Stefanies services for the sale of 332A Marmion Street as well and we're very glad we did. We would not hesitate to ask Stefanie to represent us again and she is a true credit to your company. Kind regards Denise and Mick Ross

Geoff Rabjones


Stefanie is the first real estate sales representative who has ever sold us a property. We normally find the property & call the agent. I guess she has the ability to find out what we were looking for & staying in touch with Merrilee. We would recommend Stefanie to any of our friends if they wanted to sell or buy a property.

Amy & Paul Long


Thank you! We are so ecstatic with the sale of our house, what a fantastic result in such little time! We couldn't be happier with the whole process, with special mention of the lovely Stefanie. She made selling our first family home so smooth and kept us up to the moment every step of the way. Stefanies hard work paid off and we have highly recommended her to our friends & family.

Peter Unsworth


I am pleased to provide a reference for Stefanie Dobro and Emma Powell who are both property sales representatives for real estate firm Caporn Young. As a property owner and developer I have been acquainted with both Stefanie and Emma for approximately three years. During that time I have sought advice from them both on values for property sales purposes and development proposals. I have been impressed with their specialist knowledge of the areas in which they principally operate and the professional manner in which they conduct themselves and provide their service. Both ladies understand the importance of gaining the confidence o clients and potential clients through a genuinely honest and objective approach to giving advice and opinions. They realise that successful business relationships are built over time with patience and mutual respect. The service ethic of Stefanie & Emma is first class and their follow up on market information and intelligence is excellent. I recently sold a property in East Fremantle and I am pleased to advise that the ultimate sale price came in at right where they had both appraised the property. I have no hesitation in recommending the services o both ladies. Peter Unsworth Director, NCH Investments Pty Ltd

I am writing to tell you about the great job that Stefanie Dobro did when she was selling out house for us. Stefanie was not only the agent for both the sale of our house but also the agent for the house that we were purchasing. We put our house up for sale , just as there was a slump in the WA housing prices, so it was not an easy time in the real estate market. During this time, Stefanie remained very positive and optimistic, even bringing me flowers when she could see that I had just about had enough of home opens. I have sold houses before, but have never had an agent that has worked so tirelessly to follow up with potential purchasers, and to keep us in the loop . Once our house was sold for the price that we wanted, the service did not stop there, on move in day, Stefanie arrived with champagne for us to toast the new house, as well as a massage voucher to sooth the stress of the last few months away. Stefanie also kept in touch for the next few weeks to make sure that everything was going smoothly and that we were happy in the new house. In conclusion, thanks Stafanie for a job well done, and we would not hesitate to recommend you to any potential clients.

Hannah McLeod


Stefanie Dobro assisted us in the sale of our rental property, and to be honest we have never had such a more pleasing experience with an estate agent, and I think the only other people who would feel like this are those that have also had the pleasure of working with Stef. Throughout the whole process Stef’s level of professionalism was clear, and I think I can safely say above industry standard. She worked extremely hard for ourselves (the sellers) and I have no doubt that the buyers would have felt that she was working just as hard for them. Stef managed to secure the sale of the property at the price we were hopeful for - in a very stagnant market - we couldn’t be happier. Stef remains a friend and a neighbour and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone. Thank you Stef, you really are one of a kind and ahead of the game! Hannah McLeod

I'd like to add to the list of well known 'duo dames': Thelma and Louise,Laverne and Shirley,Paris and Nicole!! Your dynamic domestic (residential) sales executives, Stefanie and Emma,are an extraordinary pair who achieve in the areas that were important to me as a home seller: empathy,reality,customer service,communication, negotiating skills and determination. They complemented each others strengths and produced an efficient and well ordered sales campaign which led to a very timely result. It has been a pleasure on a personal level to deal with such positive and friendly women. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Emma and Stefanie to anyone contemplating selling a home.

My partner and I recently have made a speedy move to locate from an inner Perth City apartment to an idyllic East Fremantle property. We have both lived in inner city apartments, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, now for over a decade and were second guessing purchasing a single dwelling and ultimately making a lifestyle change. In trend with our present day pace of life, it was a quick decision which possibly could have made the purchasing period burdened with anxiety, however not so. Due to the positive, personable and proficient approach, Stefanie Dobro gave my partner and I the confidence to proceed with this lifestyle change. In short, Stefanie exceeded our expectations with regard to professional service, care and responsibility afforded during this property purchasing period and we would have no hesitation to utilise or recommend her professional services - thank you Stef, Greg & Emily – 34 King Street, East Fremantle.

Debbie Martella


I recently sold my property through Stefanie Dobro from Caporn Young Real Estate Agents. The sale was handled extremely professionally from start to finish, the result being that the property was under contract within 4 weeks of marketing, and the selling price was most satisfactory considering the market conditions at the time. I found Stefanie to be an excellent negotiator, working and communicating regularly with the progress of the sale. Overall, I found the experience rewarding and a great outcome for all concerned. I would highly recommend Stefanie to whomever is considering selling their home. Best Regards, Debbie Martella

Stefanie’s enthusiasm and charm made the selling of our beloved house an easy process. Her positive approach to the house and the selling process helped us to manage the stressful tasks. Her smiles made us feel confident we could find someone to love our house and she worked tirelessly to achieve a great result. We will always appreciate it. Thank you Stefanie!

Sandra Seman-Bourke


Stefanie is one in a million. Her approach is one of caring, patience and is always looking out for her client. She was a delight to deal with in very trying circumstances. No time was too late, no detail too small. She helped me secure a fabulous price for a property, and she will be the one to help us find our new family home. I feel like I have known her forever, and have recommended Stefanie to many friends. Warmest regards always, Sandra Seman-Bourke

Christine & Kevin Cass-Ryall


Dear Stefanie We truly appreciate all the effort that you personally put into the marketing & (eventual) sale of our home. Your passion, energy and commitment have been nothing short of outstanding. We are very grateful and wish we had of had CY from day 1! Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Thank you Kind regards Christine & Kevin Cass-Ryall

Mal Capone


Many thanks for your great work in making the sale. I did not think in my wildest dreams that the sale would be so quick. Well done. I cant believe that it is all over, our dream turned into a dream sale. I trust that the new owners will enjoy it as much as we did. Your guidance, professionalism and efficient manner made the process go very smoothly. Take care, Mal Capone

This was our first purchase, John Street North Fremantle. As a young family with a three month old baby house hunting and putting in offers etc can be very stressful. Stefanie was positive, enthusiastic and dedicated to giving us the best possible service and advice. By making herself available at odd hours and by giving honest advice and support, Stefanie helped make the purchase of this property a very easy process for us. Her thoughtful gifts at settlement were the icing on the cake for an easy and positive step into a new stage in our family life. We love our new home and are grateful that have enjoyed the whole process, many thanks to Stefanie. Regards Christina Nicholson

Christine & Kevin Cass-Ryall


A very big thank you to Stef, Richard, Tammy and Steve for such an enjoyable night out together on Wednesday night. It was an unexpected surprise for both Kevin and I , to receive such generosity and warmth, and we came away feeling very special. I'm not sure we deserved to be showered with gifts as well as delicious french champagne, but they are very much appreciated. Many thanks to each of you Kind regards Christine and Kevin

Hi Stefanie Just wanted to say thanks so much for the great bottle of champagne and for keeping the mail for us. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your professionalism in the way you presented our home. The photographer, the lady who cam to help me get the house in order before going on the market etc. I have already spoken your praises to many people and will continue to recommend you to everyone. I think you are way ahead of the other competition. In the first instance with the preliminary meeting, presentation, communication with us. There is no comparison to the others. It has been an absolute pleasure to meet you and deal with you - you shine!!! Good luck in the future. Best Regards Maria Capone.

Simon & Vicky Redmond


We had not signed with Caporn Young at the time Stefanie contacted us to advise she may have a potential buyer, and were impressed that Stefanie had taken seriously our previous conversations that we were “aiming” to sell our home in the near future- particularly since we had been “going” to sell for almost a year. 

Having said that, we had also expressed concern with home opens and signage outside the house. Stefanie’s preparedness to work around these issues and bring to us a potential buyer we found extraordinary and highly accommodating. Bringing a buyer to us from her own networking efforts resulted in our home being sold for the price we desired, with no home opens or signage issues to be concerned about.

Stefanie has a welcoming friendly smile and enthusiastic presentation without seeming pushy in any way. She was at all times very professional and a delight to work with in the sale of our house. We are hoping to move forward in the next year or two and purchase a new property, subject to market conditions. We shall again seek Stefanie’s involvement at this time.

I would like to conclude in general that having been out in the market for well over a year now, we consistently find Caporn  Young’s consultants extremely professional, well presented and courteous. In an industry that presents itself in a variety of different ways, it is impressive that a company would at least take the time to look professional when talking to the public- especially when considering the value of the investment to be made.  

Regards,
Simon and Vicky Redmond

 

JERRI & MICHAEL


I recently purchased a property from your estate agent, Stefanie Dobro. I would like to provide some feedback regarding Stefanie's service. As you can imagine, entering the property market as a first homebuyer can be daunting. It was important to me that this be an enjoyable experience as it is something I would remember for a long time. Dealing with Stefanie was an absolute pleasure. I cannot fault her service. Stefanie went above and beyond to ensure that all of our needs were met in a timely and professional manner. She has an exceptional level of energy and enthusiasm for what she does. We will not hesitate to contact her again in the future should we require real estate services. We will also be recommending your agency, and Stefanie in particular, to everyone we know.
 
Kind regards,
Jerri Conrad and Michael Kim

Dear Brad and Stefanie,

My apologies for not getting this email to you sooner – life has been frantic of late!!

Although a little late, I wish to sincerely thank you both for all your help and efficiency regarding the purchase of the above property. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with yourself and Stefanie and I look forward to doing business with you in the future as the need presents itself.  Mark and I were very impressed with your service, attention to detail and sincerity, a very refreshing change!!! I have recommended you to my friends and family and have spread the word on the positives of dealing with true “Professionals” in the Real Estate business. In addition to the excellent sales service, the Office staff were equally professional and friendly. 

Many thanks once again.

Kind regards,
Mark and Julie Norton

FIONA EYRES


Hi Stephanie,

Thank you for completing the appraisal. I've had a read and everything seems to make sense.

I think I'm going to sit tight for the next few months and wait until November/December at which point I'll definitely keep yourself or Caporn Young in mind when seeking a sales representative. The service so far has been excellent and you certainly represent Caporn Young in a positive light.

Regards,
Fiona Eyres

REBECCA & SCOTT


Dear Stefanie and Cory,

Thank you very much for making the whole experience of selling our home so enjoyable!! 

Your professionalism and attention to detail was second to none from the very first appointment, through to AFTER our home was sold.  Nothing ever seemed too much trouble. 

Your promise to “bring the market to us” was even noticed by our neighbours who commented on the extraordinary number of people attending our home opens. We were presented with, and accepted, a great offer within a week of publically listing the home – an amazing result.

We’ll definitely contact you again when we next buy or sell a property.

Rebecca & Scott Thompson
