What our readers are saying

  • Moving at any time is likely to be a stressful activity. Especially when the move may require downsizing & sorting through many years of memories & collectables. So Belinda’s book is not only a great guide to anyone about to embark upon this move, but it’s a practical ‘How to’ manual that steps you through the practical issues. If you’re contemplating such a move soon, make it easy & read Belinda’s book first.John McGrath, CEO, McGrath Estate Agents
  • What a wonderfully practical book full of excellent tips and strategies to embrace the next stage of life. Belinda has captured the essence of what holds most people back from “Rightsizing” their home and given us the tools and motivation to overcome the obstacles with ease. Well worth reading.Rich Harvey, Managing Director, www.propertybuyer.com.au
  • It’s no surprise that Belinda Woolrych has finally written a book about property – if you only read one book this year, make it this one!Geoff Grist, Residential Sales, Richardson & Wrench
  • I have heard it said many times if you want to get a job done, give it to a busy person. Belinda has achieved all this because of her organised approach. Her system has been a reliable framework for a number of clients and now the book is an extension of that system so that others further away can enjoy the same benefits. The book acts as a guide, a coach and checklist where one can step through a process in their own timeframe and budget. A great resource.John Drake, Principal, Drake Real Estate
  • Congratulations on combining your wealth of experience and knowledge to provide Empty-Nester Australians with a practical guide to ‘Rightsizing’.Linda Coskerie, Principal, Property Focus In Sydney
  • I have co-presented with Belinda on a number of downsizing seminars now and have clients who have also utilised Belinda’s services and spoken highly of the experience and success they have achieved as a result of her skills and services. Belinda is a highly motivated, passionate and skilled professional who I would have no hesitation in recommending.Jenny Simmonds, Certified Financial Planner, Retire By Design
  • Belinda Woolrych and her team have been exceptional in their management and property preparation. A particular vendor was reluctant to move after 40 years in their much loved family home. From an original run down brick home, Belinda inexpensively transformed this property into a clean, fresh and more desirable home, done precisely to appeal to a specific demographic of buyer.Andrew Strong, LREA, LJ Hooker
  • Belinda advised on my home renewal, including inside and outside. Very professional and cost effective. She provided answers to the questions asked and remained focused throughout.Peter Casey, Client
  • I used Belinda to style my unit. It went up for sale on the weekend and sold for an amount far exceeding expectations. Every person commented on how fabulous it looked. Highly recommend her services for those thinking about selling.Sal Knight, Client
  • You gave us wonderful ideas on how to present the house for sale. It was no longer our home but a ‘business transaction’ and we took your ideas on board and worked very hard to create a beautiful house for sale.Janice, Client
  • We sold our home to the first buyer that inspected it, even before it was officially listed on the market! We would recommend Belinda Woolrych to anyone looking to sell their home, or simply improve the interior design of their current home.Rebecca, Client
  • Belinda was able to look at our house with ‘fresh eyes’ and give us some fantastic ideas on how we could bring our tired 1970s style house into the 21st Century. She was conscious of our budget and made suggestions to keep us within our price range.Angela, Client
  • We recently hired Belinda and her team to come into our 90 year old neighbour’s home and get it ready for sale. It was in original state and Belinda and her amazing team were able to transform it in just days. We are forever grateful for meeting Belinda Grundy and forever grateful for all the help she gave us.Simone, Client
  • Belinda’s service is excellent. After the initial meeting and priority list, we went to work with a vengeance! What a difference it made in my life: I got rid of things I didn’t need, de-cluttering my life as I decluttered my home.Bea, Client
  • The advice on what to discard and what to replace was spot on. I have a completely de-cluttered house and it feels great.Greg, Client
  • I was very anxious about ‘the move” and hoped I would be able to find people who were in touch with my needs as an individual and who would treat my property with care. Belinda and her team were calm, sensitive and totally understanding.Margaret, Client
  • Sold in two weeks for the price we were after … what more can you say than that? If you are looking to sell your home fast, then working with Papillon Styling & Renovations is the solution. You will have an attractive home that people will fall in love with and just ‘have’ to buy.Joanna, Client
  • It is refreshing to get a different approach on how to present a home. As much as it is difficult to hear that some special treasure just doesn’t do it anymore, it’s welcome advice and we have certainly acted on your suggestions.Peita, Client
  • Thank you so much for the book. I have been caught up in your passion just in the first few pages and also how you have hit the nail on the head in relation to the obstacles clients face in a move to “rightsize”. I learnt from all the clients I have dealt with over 22 years of selling in the retirement industry about doing it when you are fit and well enough to do it and you are in charge of the decision.Anonymous
