Ali went above and beyond to ensure buying my first home was as smooth as possible. She was very helpful and knew her local market to a tee. She was always available and answered any questions I had. Her quick reply to emails and calls and dedication to her job is something all agents should strive for but unfortunately don't. It made the transaction process with Ali that much more easier and stress free. I couldn't have asked to have a better agent to purchase my first home through! Thanks Ali.

I interviewed three people when I needed an estate agent and, of the three, Ali Pericak stood out as an agent who would be best for me. She didn't bring a folder of "I am" material to impress me: she brought "herself" and her plan for my sale. Since then we have worked closely to bring about a satisfactory sale at auction. Throughout the whole process, Ali kept me well informed about what she was doing on my behalf and her weekly reports throughout the campaign were very detailed and offered in a most professional manner. Because I lived outside Sydney, Ali willingly undertook to to deal with tradesmen and all manner of callers to the property, an aspect of her work as my agent which made my job so much easier. Although this was a trying time for me, Ali made it enjoyable because she brought a sense of humour with her each time there was contact between us and, as a result, we had numerous entertaining conversations along the way. I would recommend Ali Pericak to anyone thinking if selling a property. Her personal presentation, knowledge of key issues, attention to detail and ability to deal with a vendor who felt out of her comfort zone were second to none.
I wish her continued success and rich rewards as she grows further in her
chosen career and in life in general. Thanks so much Ali - you're a legend! 


Ali was great from the start. We felt comfortable that she would deliver the best result for us without over promising. Ali on numerous occasions went above and beyond for us. She kept us informed on upcoming comparable properties, extended our opening schedule to compete with the changing market and communicated recent sale info with us to help educate us on the market and manage our expectations. Even after our sale was finalized Ali continued to help us with the purchase of our next property, assisting us with contract and documentation advice and offering to help us at auction. She has been not only professional in her approach but approachable and honest in the way she communicates and carries herself. We would definitely use Ali again and highly recommend her to anyone wishing to sell

I would like to thank the First National Holgate Lane Cove team for their outstanding service during our property search. We have known Scott for many years and have always found him to be exceptional in his integrity, professionalism and local knowledge.

We were delighted to recently purchase a property from Scott, it was the perfect combination of dream home and perfect agent. It is a rare thig to be able to say but we would not have wished to purchase our ideal home from anyone else. He is the standard that other agents should aim for.

Scott’s unerring professional assistance throughout was greatly appreciated, he is a credit to the profession and we would highly recommend his services to all.


Having dealt with Holgate before, we formed a relationship with Scott and appreciated his professional and personal manner. The catalyst for selling our home was the purchase of another, also sold by Scott.
We were kept informed of all developments leading up to the sale. People were keen to purchase before auction, so we accepted Scott’s advice and let him work with the potential buyers to get us the best price.
All our thoughts and comments are totally positive regarding the sale process.

It gives us great pleasure that we furnish a letter of recommendation for Scott Henry of Holgate First National. We felt very comfortable dealing with Scott as we had purchased two properties through Holgate First National in the past.
Scott displayed a thorough understanding of the real estate market in Longueville. We needed to secure a buyer for our property quickly in order to bid at an auction very soon after.  All was accomplished in record time. Scott's efforts to secure a buyer for our home were exceptional. We were successful at the auction two weeks later.
We would definitely deal with Scott Henry in the future and would be delighted to recommend him to our family and friends. We had complete trust in Scott's handling of all negotiations. His enthusiasm and efforts in securing the sale of our home and the purchase of another was boundless.
