Dear whom it may concern,
I had the pleasure of dealing with Mark Marinelli while looking for a commercial property to Lease in 2015. The team, but especially Mark were fantastic to deal with. Always punctual, very reliable and excellent communicators.
Nothing was ever too much trouble for Mark and he always greeted myself in a very happy and professional manner. His retention of information in regards to tenants and landlords rights and responsibilities was first class and always articulated well.
I can speak from experience in saying that I'd be more than happy to use Mark of WHK Commercial, again to assist with any commercial properties and would strongly recommend him to friends and family.

Just a short note of thanks to you and your team for negotiating the sale of our property at Foreshore Road, Port Kembla.
I especially appreciated the advice and guidance that you provided to us throughout the selling process. Despite your assurances, we did anticipate this property be listed on the market for some time, but it was a great relief to be told that you had found a purchaser in a relatively short amount of time, which then eventuated in our sale.
Once again, thank you for your assistance, perserverance and hard-work, and I look forward to working with you and your team again in the future. I would also have no hesitation in recommending your agency to any other companies or contacts within the industry.

I would like to formally thank Harry and his team and acknowledge their hard work and dedication to selling my warehouse located at 277 Princes Highway, Unanderra.
WHK Commercial have managed this property, along with a number of my other commercial sites, since 2010 and when it came time to selling this particular site, there was never any question as to who I would choose to list it. Their extensive knowledge of the site and the local area most certainly assisted and benefitted in the selling process, and contributed to obtaining an excellent result for me.
Having been a commercial property owner based in the Illawarra for many years, I have dealt with a number of real estate professionals in my time, and not all of these experiences have been positive. I cannot think more highly of Harry and the great team he has surrounded himself with.
A sincere thank you for a successful Settlement. Harry and his professional team of real estate agents deserve all the success they achieve.

On behalf of my brother Anthony and I, we wish to thank you for selling our property at 12 Durgadin Drive, Albion Park Rail in November. You were able to get us a great result and also helped us to secure and purchase our new larger premises in Unanderra whilst our existing premises were listed on the market.
At a very stressful and overwhelmingly busy time for us, with our head office relocation, expansion of the business and simultaneous Settlements, Harry made the selling and buying process very easy and straightforward. I felt the marketing of our property was handled exceptionally; the advertising of the property for sale complimented Harry's hard work and commitment to the sale.
As one of the property owners, the desire to be kept informed was high on my agenda and Harry certainly lived up to my expectations in this regard. I apprecaited the regular contact as well as being kept up-to-date through emails, phone calls and meetings.
Harry has a no-nonsense approach to sale which I very much apprecaite. I will not hesitate to engage Harry as our agent in any future commercial property dealings.

We recently purchased a commercial property through Mark Marinelli of WHK Commercial Property. Negotiations for the purchase were somewhat protracted however Mark kept us up to date and informed at all times. We expressed an interest in the property based on certain conditions.
Mark immediately set about creating some common ground where vendor and purchaser could reach some agreement. A satisfactory outcome was achieved for both parties and the sale proceeded. Thank for your help Mark.

Dear Prospective Landlords, Tenants, Buyers and Sellers,
It is my immense pleasure to recommend Damian Evans from WHK Commercial Property, as a real estate agent for any individual, company or enterprise looking to service their needs in commercial or industrial real estate to suit their unique situation. We contacted Damian when our property needs outgrew our previous commercial premises.
Damian had one initial meeting with us and took dilligent notes with regards to specific company needs and property requirements, as well as our budgetary limitations. He listened to our needs and he did not waste our time with properties that did not suit our needs or budget.
A master with the contract negotiations, Damian quickly got to work with the Landlord to come up with a deal that was ideal for us and made the Landlord happy as well. Throughout this new property negotiation process, Damian also managed to sub-Lease our previous premises resulting in an excellent outcome for us, especially in the current diffcult market situation, at the time. He knew the existing market and suitability available properties like the back of his hand.
We found Damian to be highly attentive, almost as if we her his only customers, although we know that was not the case. He returned all phone calls and emails promptly. We never felt neglected or unimportant. We are delighted to recommend Damian Evans to anyone looking to service their commecial property needs. He is hands down one of the most honest and reliable in the business, and in our option, if we ever need to relocate again, he will be our first choice in agents.

WHK Commercial Property has been managing our properties for several years now.
Mark Marinelli has been our main point of contact and has been a pleasure to deal with. During this time, we have had tenants come and go and Mark has played a crucial part in sourcing tenants for our properties. He has always kept us up-to-date with what is happening in relation to potential tenants, not leaving us in the lurch and left wondering how things are progressing.
The quality of our tenants is obviously attributable to Mark's excellent leasing abilities. He has demonstrated professionalism and integrity and has also been extremely supportive, dealing with any tenant problems efficiently and immediately.
We would never hesitate to pick up the phone and talk to Mark if we had any concerns. We know that things will be acted upon promptly and just taken care of.
We thank Mark for his honesty and reliability and would, no doubt, highly recommend the services of WHK Commercial Property to anyone wanting top class management of any property.

You are a credit to your profession.

To whom it may concern,
I have been dealing with Mark Marinelli for the past two years; he has been instrumental in finding me the investment property I have been looking for. He has always maintained a high degree of professionalism and I am sure that the seller of the property was as pleased as I was when the deal was negotiated through Mark.
I have no hesitation in recommending Mark Marinelli to any person or company looking at listing or purchasing a property.

Received from CareSouth - 26th June 2014
CareSouth were looking to purchase a commercial property to re-develop as our Illawarra Headquarters.
Mark Marinelli from WHK Commercial Property took the time to listen to our needs and after some investigation he presented us with a suitable property at Berkeley. The property was a disused supermarket and had a floor area of 2,000sqm and a 2,000sqm carpark which was ideal for us to re-develop for our needs. For CareSouth to re-develop the property, it required DA approval from Wollongong Council for a change of use, and this both delayed and complicated the normal purchase process.
Mark was instrumental in keeping all parties informed through the purchase process and seeing the matter through to Settlement. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mark and WHK Commercial to anyone looking to purchase in the Illawarra.

Received from Trek Bikes - 15th June 2014
I came across WHK Commercial Property when looking for a commercial rental in Wollongong in 2012. A site I was interested in was re-advertised with WHK. Unlike the first agent, WHK seemed to work on behalf of both parties to gain a mutual result and not what was best for the agent. The negotiations were timely and a property that was on the market for years leased quickly once Mark became involved.
When the time came for our business to require a second location we were pleased to see WHK were the agents and reassuringly commenced negotiations. Nothing had changed. Mark worked for both parties and we are about to occupy our next location. At times when Mark has been on leave, Harry has stepped in and been fully aware of our needs, creating a smooth process.
I'm only hoping WHK are expanding near to where we hope to have our third location, to continue our leasing relationship.
After occupation, we then got to know Linda Bott, the commercial Property Manager. We have complete confidence that she is aware of our expectations and trust in her management of our Lease. Her communication with us is crisp, clear, and given with a smile.

To whom it may concern,
I engaged Harry Stefanou of WHK Commercial Property as the sole acting agent for me in September 2013 when my property at Resolution Drive was placed on the market for sale. After a successful print and online marketing campaign, we had offer and acceptance on the property within 5 months of listing it. This alone was a substantial accomplishment in an unpredictable commercial market and reflects the great efforts Harry and his team went to, to market the property to their existing database of potential purchasers, as well as new clients in the market.
Harry was instrumental in guiding me through a somewhat difficult sale, helping us to achieve an excellent end result. Without Harry's patience and assistance throughout the selling process, we would still be trying to negotiate terms and finalise the sale.
I will not hesitate to recommend the service of Harry to anyone else we know looking to sell or lease their commercial property in the area.

We would like to thank you for the way in which our property at 226 Berkeley Road, Unanderra was marketed by your firm.
The whole approach was professional and we were very impressed by not only the quality of the marketing, but the amount of exposure obtained by media advertisement and the large customer base that you already have.
It was aso very pleasing that you kept us updated on the progress of the marketing as and when it occurred.
Once again, thank you for your business-like manner in selling our premises.

Received from Industrial Land Sales & Investments Pty Ltd - August 2012
As managing director of Industrial Land Sales and Investments Pty Ltd, I have dealt with Mark Marinelli on several occasions. He is proactive, assertive, well spoken and easy to deal with. We recently had a vacant factory unit that had not been leased in some time, even after being put to the market via other agents. Mark actually came to us with an initial enquiry which for a number of reasons didn't come through, he however kept us in mind and made sure we found a tenant soon after the initial enquiry. He has a highly professional manner of conducting business and is always willing to take that extra step to ensure client satisfaction, all done with an easy going no fuss attitude.
Mark knows the market well and does not look to waste your time, as with any business, communication is key and Mark always has been quick to respond, even if the news is not ideal.

Thanks to you Harry for a job well done in leasing my property at 29 Glastonbury Avenue, Unanderra in January 2012.
The determination and efficiency in which you found a new Tenant for the property was very impressive, and I found the entire process, from advertising the property for Lease, to signing the new final documentation, ran very smoothly and stress-free.
Your flawless reputation as a trustworthy and successful sales and leasing agent throughout the Illawarra is most definitely justified and I look forward to dealing with you again in the future. I would also recommend your agency to anyone, without reservations. Thank you again for providing me with such an excellent service.
