What Carl's clients are saying
I just wanted to let you know about the fantastic service we received by Carl. I first spoke to Carl about two years ago when he came to do a valuation of my house. Since then he kept in regular touch. That was the reason I thought of him when I was ready to put my house up for sale. He was professional when he came down to meet us for the first time and explained the process. He suggested that we choose the auction method for sale. In spite of our hesitation with this method we listened to him as he was so confident that this would work to our advantage. We were again impressed by his professionalism and attention to detail when he sent us the plan and schedule for the entire sale process. That was helpful for us as we had a clear idea of the entire journey and also gave us the deadlines to do our part in the sale like preparing the house for the opens, etc. Close to the auction day, we met Carl as scheduled where he introduced us to Michael who would conduct our auction. Michael was also as professional as Carl and even though they were confident of getting the best price, they prepared us for the worst case scenario too. They also worked out strategies to overcome each scenario. On the auction day Philip Webb staff were there well before time. Carl, Michael and other staff did a fantastic job on the day. Carl worked hard for the whole month and had set up a good turn out and Michael was brilliant in capturing the buyers’ interest in the property and was able to get the highest possible price for the house. The auction result was fantastic and we got more than what we were hoping for. We want to thank all your staff, the photographer, Michael and a very special thanks to Carl. Another surprise was when you called us on the morning of the auction day. That was really nice of you. We just wanted to share this entire journey with you and express our thanks. You have such fantastic staff.

I am happy to recommend Carl deWacht to anyone in the Maroondah area looking to sell their property. Carl was patient in selling my house, with a determination to get the result that we as vendors wanted. Many agents try to pressure vendors to sell to the first offer, as to get the result themselves earlier. This was not the case with Carl, which impressed us most. We were never pressured, nor did he lose interest or momentum during the campaign from day one to sale. Carl worked tirelessly to bring as many people through the property as he could, and gave the potential purchasers honest feedback, and ultimately found the right people to buy our house, with a negotiated price that we were extremely happy with. He was able to turn any challenges during the campaign into positives, and had a fantastic line of communication with us from start to finish. Thank you once again to Carl for selling our house, and being great to deal with throughout the whole process.
Established a great relationship with Carl working through the sale of our property. Carl willingly spent significant time researching and meeting with us throughout the process. Importantly, he was patient and supportive in respecting our timelines and continuing to work with us LONG before we eventually proceeded to sale. We feel we've established a long term relationship and look forward to the next opportunity to work with him.
Carl had kept in touch for the previous three years. He was always great to deal with and respected our timing. Carl was always honest in advising a price range for our unit. He exceeded our expectations in final price and sale. We have found the process of selling and having Carl as our agent positive as it was all well planned. We would not hesitate to recommend him as our agent of choice. Thank you Carl for your professionalism and keeping us informed every step of the process.
Carl deWacht was very helpful in planning the sale of my house from over a year before the auction, including very useful assistance on preparing the house for sale and presentation. He was always available and approachable to discuss progress, and in organising extra opens as needed. I would recommend him to anyone selling in the area. I am very happy with the great work he has done with this sale.
My wife and I would like to thank Philip Webb, and especially Carl deWacht, for an outstanding experience during the selling of our property. From our first kick off meeting, appraisal process and ongoing support through the entire campaign through to successful sale at a desired price, Carl was engaged and provided an excellent service and support through the entire process. Information provided was accurate and met our expectations. At no stage did we feel we were being lead down the garden path or had our expectations inflated. It was an honest and trustworthy process. Carl even assisted us with research on the purchase of our new property which was outside of his scope of selling our house. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Happy to recommend Carl and the Philip Webb team any day!

It is our great pleasure to write this testimony for the success in the selling of our house in Ringwood by auction. After retirement in September last year we moved to Perth to stay with our daughter and our home was leased. We were particularly nervous about the sale of this property, worrying about the contact with the agent, cooperation of the tenant, and particularly about the weather in June which is often cold and rainy. We wish to say a big ‘thank you’ to Carl deWacht who eased all our anxiety by meeting us several times to explain the procedures of the campaign. After each open inspection, he worked very hard to contact the potential buyers and rang us every Tuesday to give us the feedback. Despite the far distance between Perth and Melbourne, we were happy with the pre-auction meeting by phone with Carl and the auctioneer Michael who explained the auction in detail and helped us to set the reserve price. With all this preparation, we felt more relaxed to come back to Melbourne for the auction day. It was very cold and foggy in the morning that Saturday. Thank God that as soon as the auction started, the fog was cleared, the blue sky appeared and the sun shone on our house. Thanks to the experience of Michael, the bidding was so heated, and pushed to an unbelievable price of $920,000!!!!! Thanks to all who made the selling of our house a great success!!!
Asta & Thomas
Our daughter advised us that Carl was an honest and sincere agent based on her experience. Our experience was comfortable and we were confident given Carl’s knowledge. Detailed, on time and without any pressure, we had a sound sense that Carl knew exactly what was right for us, and he put us at ease from start to finish. We would have no hesitation in recommending Carl.

I would not hesitate to recommend Carl deWacht as an outstanding real estate agent. We were continually impressed with his communication with us every step of the way. He was at all times honest in his dealings with us and we appreciated that. We felt secure at all times knowing that he was doing the best job possible in order to ensure we got the best price possible.
I would just like to thank you for the wonderful effort you provided in the sale of my property recently. You are a true professional. You were committed to listening to my needs and achieved an outstanding result. My home sold within one week of the first open for inspection and the result far exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent.
Just wanted to publicly say a huge thank-you to our real estate agent Carl DeWacht for the amazing job he did selling our home. We sold within the first week and are absolutely thrilled with the outcome. We would highly recommend Carl to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent, he is extremely helpful, professional, down-to-earth and willing to go that extra mile. It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with him.
Just a short note to thank you for the very professional way in which you handled the recent sale of our property. My wife and I were extremely pleased with your efforts and the end results you achieved on our behalf. Your very friendly and competent service was very much appreciated and we would not hesitate to give you and PhilipWebb our highest recommendation.
When we were trying to buy properties I always thought that the PhilipWebb agents were good to deal with. When we were thinking of putting our house on the market, Carl filled us with confidence that he would do a good job of selling our property. We agreed a process and timeline when we first signed up and he stuck to it. The one thing that impressed me the most was that I NEVER had to follow up on anything. He had a great balance of keeping us informed just the right amount. As I’ve shared above, Carl was great. In addition I found everyone I spoke to in the office were always very professional and helpful. The ladies at the front desk are lovely! The communication was excellent, just the right balance of enough information and follow up without being over the top. Carl kept us up to date – he told us what we needed to know and took care of all the other things that we didn’t need to know about. It’s a really personal decision and you have to be comfortable with the person that you choose but we couldn’t have been happier with Carl and would use him next time we sell a house. Thank you Carl!!
Carl made the experience easy to understand and explained his logic behind tactical choices when marketing the property. He suggested some alternative strategies which had worked recently in the area which ultimately lead to achieving a result that was higher than expected! Having an in depth knowledge of the area that the agent is selling is paramount and Carl has many years experience selling in the area.
The communication conducted by Carl DeWacht was extremely good so I always knew where we were at, what to expect, what was being followed up and where we stood with respect to the final price we could expect to sell the property. I would have no hesitation recommending Carl and the PhilipWebb team to friends and other contacts because they are very professional in the way they handle the sale from start to finish.
On the day we met, Carl was prompt and well presented. I was most impressed with the service, attention to detail and efficiency with every relevant detail in getting the “show on the road”. Carl even arranged for an electrician who arrived on time, and carried out his work cleanly and efficiently. Everything ran extremely smoothly and I found Carl very reassuring and positive throughout the campaign. I was very nervous but I had faith in Carl and Rob (the auctioneer) that they would deliver – and they did! I was one happy vendor! Carl had prepared me for a successful day, but what he said at the beginning impressed me – if I don’t have to call to ask about anything during the campaign, he has done his job well. I would most certainly recommend PhilipWebb, particularly Carl deWacht to friends and family.
Carl was a pleasure to do business with. He confidently explained his intended campaign approach and why he believed this approach suited this specific sale. Although I was physically absent during the campaign, Carl kept me appropriately informed at every stage and secured an excellent result within only a few weeks.
Both Carl and Simon’s planning and quality of their initial proposal was outstanding. The detailed knowledge and multiple marketing plans put forward always had our interests at heart. Overall Carl and the PhilipWebb team were outstanding during the campaign and Auction Day. With the exception of our own nerves and stress levels, the Auction process was seamless. Everybody was great and we will definitely refer Carl and PhilipWebb to any of our friends/colleagues.
PhilipWebb Real Estate is highly respected in the Ringwood area. It has good presence in the community and came highly recommended by a friend who had recent dealings with the company. Carl made the experience very easy. He was professional and supportive, communication was excellent and the service overall was outstanding. Carl did a fantastic job.
Carl and his team at PhilipWebb Ringwood provided a five star service. We were kept up to date with every part of the pre-auction campaign, and the property was sold well in excess of our expectations. I would recommend Carl very highly for anyone looking to sell in this area.
I found Carl to be highly professional, very easy to deal with and realistic in his approach and advice. I was completely satisfied with him and would not hesitate to engage him in the future. I highly recommend Carl, you will not be disappointed.
Carl was fantastic from the first meeting to the sale on auction day. A real gentleman, trustworthy and nothing was too much.

We will use his services again and no hesitation recommending him to others.
