28 years is an incredibly long time to be in business and we are so thankful to our John Pye Team and the service they provide to our Clients and Customers.

Our Team members work very hard behind the scenes and this week at our celebration lunch, we reflected on the fact that collectively we have over 100 years of combined experience in the Real Estate Industry.

We appreciate the kind and affirming words that people have shared with us over the years and also the many recommendations and referrals that you, our wonderful Clients and Customers, have provided to us.

If you have a message you would like to pass onto John and the Team, feel free to email bec@johnpye.com.au or leave a comment below. Also, please let us know if we can serve any of your family members or friends either sell or manage their property in Sydney.

Some Interesting Facts from our 28 years:

– We still manage a good number of property which came with the purchase of the business in 1991 including one full block of home units in Hornsby

– Our first sale was a 3-bedroom house in Arthurs Circle, Mount Colah which sold for $215,000. This property is still under management. The first home unit (2 Beds) sold was at block 3-7 Edgeworth David Ave, Hornsby for $161,500

– We have sold the largest house, accommodation-wise, within the Hornsby Shire – 18 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms plus a couple of grand living rooms situated at Hookhams Corner

– The youngest Purchaser we have helped in purchasing their first home was 23 years old. She lived in the unit for 6 months and moved back to her family home, and rented out the property

– Our oldest client, who is still with us today, signed up with us 28 years ago

– We have a large number of properties owned by second-generation clients, bought by parents and now a legacy left to their children

– We have sold multiple properties in Hornsby and Asquith for several individuals within one local family – parents, grown-up children and in one case, grandchildren

– Many in our Investor portfolio have several properties. Our Client with the largest investment portfolio is one with 46 properties. Another has 18 properties spread over a huge area of Sydney

– We have sold and still manage property for the NSW State Government. Plus, we have sold or managed property for the Hornsby Shire Council, Baptist Church, Church of Christ, Salvation Army, Seventh-day Adventist Church, Anglican Church and the Catholic Church, as well as on behalf of the Public Trustee (now known as NSWTG)

– We have sold one particular Mount Colah home 4 times, in a period of approx. 5 years – though the current Buyer has enjoyed being there for over 14 years now! Yet other properties we have sold have never come back onto the market. In all, there are countless transactions – we estimate several thousand

– In all, we have sold or managed property in just under 80 suburbs of Sydney

Whether you have been with us for 28 years, or have become a John Pye Real Estate client just this week, we want to say a heartfelt thank you for allowing us to care for you, your family and your property.

Here’s to the next 28 years!
