Testimonials _ Having recently moved from the south-west to Breakfast Point I am amazed by the peace, tranquillity and beauty of Breakfast Point. Congratulations to the developer Breakfast Point PL for having the vision to create a community with facilities for the residents to enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle. The open spaces and amazing foreshore make living at breakfast point an absolute pleasure. A haven amongst the bustle of city living. The move was made even more enjoyable and pleasurable with the support and guidance from the staff of Breakfast Point Realty. Alison and her team are professional, diligent and act with the purchaser’s best interest at heart at all times. A sincere thank you to you all for giving me an amazing place to call home.

_ Right from the beginning, Alison impressed us with her honesty and professional service and to this day, that hasn’t changed. If ever we have a problem, Alison responds immediately which is very important to us. All the staff at Breakfast Point Realty are as terrific as the new office. We enjoy being residents of Breakfast Point.

_ We found Stephanie from Breakfast Point Realty to be very professional during the purchase of our property. She was courteous and very understanding of our concerns and dealt with them in a very professional manner. She also went above and beyond even after settlement! A big “Thank you” to Stephanie for making it as easy as possible to buy our Breakfast Point home.

_ Alison, We Would like to share our experience in dealing with the Breakfast Point Realty team including you as being an excellent one. The complete process from the initial inspection through to settlement and thereafter property management was smooth and a pleasant experience indeed. Mr A Saxena

Dr & Mrs O’Toole

_ I am originally from Queensland but was re-located to Sydney for work, initially renting at Admiralty, later moving to Hunters Wharf to take full advantage of the breathtaking harbour views and city skyline. Alison assisted with my moves to, around or from Breakfast Point, she was wonderful at organising all the small details such as cleaning. Alison’s quality of service has been fabulous, she has a really easy going manner and yet she is so professional. _ We wish to say a few words of appreciation regarding the marvelous cooperation and assistance we have received from Cilla Green in negotiating our purchase of the Townhouse at Cabarita. In a few words we can sum up her role in securing this transaction; skill, initiative, integrity - all at the highest level. Yvonne & Rene Tsukasoff
