Property Solutions 101 Testimonials

Dave - Property Investor

We were recommended to use Property Solutions 101 by our financial planner.

I was dubious at first, having been in control of our purchases in the past.

Not living in the area, the team provided us with important information relating to the best possible yield return on our investment. 

All correspondence was brisk, and feedback was precise and direct. Noting also that we were communicating well after normal business hours.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kylie and the team to anyone looking for a property in the region.

Tracy - Property Investor

I live in Sydney and engaged with Kylie Frearson and her team to assist me to secure an investment property in Newcastle.

From my first meeting with Kylie, she had my confidence and trust, and I knew I would be successful in achieving my goal. She impressed me with her professionalism and in-depth knowledge of the Newcastle property market, and she was able to quickly understand and respond to my very specific purchase needs. She was generous with her time and extremely accommodating to the very limited schedule I offered her, as a shift worker, for our phone contact and face to face meetings. There were times when I became despondent that I would not be able to find a property to meet my budget and suit my needs. Kylie remained confident and committed, and provided me with the reassurance I needed to continue.

Kylie demonstrated great integrity, sincerity and support throughout my buying process. When she presented me with properties, she would suggest the price she considered the property was worth, what I should offer, and a point at which I should walk away. Never once did she push me to offer an amount over her original valuation and I feel this quality is very rarely seen in the real estate industry.

I have now engaged Kylie and the team as managing agents for my property, and have absolute faith in them to secure me reliable tenants and maintain my investment property.

I highly recommend Kylie Frearson and Property Solutions 101 if you are considering purchasing a property in Newcastle!


We wanted to purchase a development site in Newcastle for a dual occupancy/subdivision opportunity, but knew we would have to find something 'off-market' to avoid a bidding war with the many other people like us who were looking for the same thing. 

We were fortunate to be referred to Property Solutions 101, who has many contacts in the industry and has also done many similar developments previously, so they knew what we needed and how to go about getting it. The team was very patient with us, and always happy to continue the search if the opportunities they found weren't quite right for us. 

When we did find the right one, the team used their experience and relationship with the sales agent to help us secure it that day. Although their job is now done, they remain engaged in the development process and continue to offer advice when asked.

 I have no hesitation in recommending Property Solutions 101 services to you.

Peta & Jesse – Property Investors

I can not recommend Kylie and her team enough. We are incredibly happy that we decided to invest money with their impeccable service. Being investors from outside of Newcastle, we were not familiar with the suburbs and most certainly not familiar with what streets within those suburbs were good to invest in. Having an 'insiders' knowledge for us proved to be very valuable and most certainly saved us money in the end

Without the team, we would have not been able to secure our perfect investment property in a suburb that we originally thought was out of our price range. We can not thank them enough for the time they took (on numerous occasions) to understand what we were looking for. 

Having such a great experience with 101, we are now going to use their property management team to care for our property. 

ANDREW – Property Investor

We have used other Property Agents in the past, however, we found the Property Solutions 101 team much more knowledgeable of their market and they quickly understood what we were looking for.

The team identified properties which would fit our needs and were very professional in negotiating the transaction.  We are very happy with the final outcome and now have a great investment property.  Many thanks.

ELIZABETH & GEOFF - Property Investors

In a surprisingly competitive, fast moving Newcastle market Property Solutions 101 found us an ideal investment property off-market and had it rented out for more than we expected by the day we settled, without even having to advertise!

Their extensive local knowledge and professionalism were impressive. They were always honest and positive about meeting our criteria and wouldn’t let us lower our standards. They saved us valuable time, money and stress. We actually found the whole experience of buying an investment property enjoyable and fun with the team from Property Solutions 101.

We definitely recommend them to our friends, family or anyone planning to invest in the Newcastle area. Clearly, they are highly respected in the Newcastle real-estate world which makes everything easy. Thanks again to the team at Property Solutions 101 for being so committed to your clients and for finding us a ‘ripper’ investment property.

ALBA – Forever Home Buyer

As an experienced older house buyer wanting to buy my last forever home, my budget was not allowing me to find the right property in the right area. I decided that due to this being such an important final purchase, that I should spend the money on getting the right help.

After researching a few buyer's agents in the area I decided on Property Solutions 101. Not only did I feel most comfortable with them from the very start, but they had a team of professionals that I felt all had my best interests at heart. It was definitely a team effort.

After months of searching myself, it only took the team at Property Solutions 101 less than 2 weeks to find my perfect home. They even opened my eyes to an area I had never contemplated or even thought I had a chance at getting a look in. Luckily for me, their contacts allowed early inspection on a property and a more personalised negotiation process. I can't say the process was smooth running, but because of Property Solutions 101 support the process wasn't as painful as it could have been. There were issues with the bank finance, which the team introduced me to a mortgage broker and conveyancer that helped me sort out the issue with no stress. 

All I can say is that I wouldn't have found my perfect home if it wasn't for the team effort from Property Solutions 101. Even after I purchased the house, the team were more than happy to put me in contact with reliable handymen to assist with some extra work I wanted done on my new home.

I can not recommend them more highly. It was money well spent. 


After numerous unsuccessful purchase attempts we engaged the team at Property Solutions 101 as our buyers’ agent. Their depth of knowledge of the local market was invaluable in finding us the perfect property. We have no doubt we would still be looking if not for their expertise. We have no hesitation in recommending Property Solutions 101 to prospective purchasers.

Jessie and Angela - Looking for the Next Home

After spending almost half of the year unsuccessfully of trying to find our dream home we finally found Property Solutions 101 and we never looked back.

From the very start the team were amazing. They knew what we were after and they knew how to help us get there. We set out our property wish list and we were delighted that our expectations were completely exceeded and the team found and secured us our dream home. From country living to our very own inner city dream home we couldn't be happier. Property Solutions 101 have the know how and the power to make dreams happen. I highly recommend you stop trying to buy a home yourself and engage the professionals. Their knowledge, experience and guidance made buying our new home extremely stress free and so very easy.

We can't thank the team at Property Solutions 101 enough. We'll never forget the amazing work you've done to help our family start the next chapter of our lives.


Newcastle is a minefield - literally and in terms of property buying. There is so much local knowledge that you just don't know if you didn't grow up here. I moved here from Melbourne seeking sunshine and ocean and I wanted to buy somewhere that would be a good investment as well as a pleasant place to live.

The way property sells in Newcastle is so different to anywhere else.  Any decent real estate sells FAST. That's why having a well-informed property advocate is someone you want on your side. If you can place your trust in an expert, you will make a good decision.

And the team at Property Solutions 101 are true experts. They will listen to what you want and not waste your time with red herrings. But they also have the courage to tell you when its time to move on to a better property. I bought 6 weeks ago and I am only realising now what a good purchase I made. Thanks so much to the whole team at Property Solutions 101.


Andrew Flint - First Home Buyer

I can highly recommend the Property Solutions 101 team. As a first home buyer I was concerned about not knowing what I was doing. Also being a shift worker I was unable to put the time in to go to inspections every weekend and was worried I would miss the opportunity in a growing market. 

The team found properties for me based upon the brief I gave, then took me to see potentials as it fitted around my schedule. Along the way they gave me insights on the market, what could be done to properties to add value and what would be a fair price for that property.

When it was time to put in an offer on a place, Kylie made it all happen seamlessly. We picked up the first property we put an offer on before it went to auction, which we thought was a great price below what it might have gone for had it gone to auction.

I am glad I went with Property Solutions 101 because they took the time and effort out of the home buying process and gave me the confidence that I was making the right purchase.


Ian Clark - Property Investor

I thoroughly recommend the team at Property Solutions 101. The team displayed great professionalism and a commitment to finding the right investment property for us.

From initial brief to final settlement their service was second to none. Through their extensive network of contacts and vast knowledge of the local property market, they were able to source the ideal investment property, one which I would have never been able to find myself.

The property management division of Property Solutions 101 then quickly found quality tenants and negotiated a good rate of rent to add the icing to the cake.

Thank you to the team for a great service and I look forward to working with you all again when we make our next purchase.

Julie Fox - Family Upsizing Home

The buyer’s agency team at Property Solutions 101 compliment each other so well. They offered us a well-rounded insight into the property market and not only took the time to completely understand my brief, but also find out what was important to our family. 

By choosing to hire the Property Solutions 101 it freed up our time immensely, and we were so confident they were covering the entire marketplace. All the properties present in the shortlist were exactly what we were after. Once we decided on the property the team went out to secure it for us, using their superior negations skills showing a huge amount of patience and expertise to secure the property after a lengthy process. We never doubted them and were ecstatic when the offer was accepted. 

Thanks to the amazing team, we now have a great family home and we’re absolutely sure the team saved us thousands and endless amount of time. 

A huge thank you to the team at Property Solutions 101, we are so very happy with our home and would absolutely recommend the team to anyone looking to buy property. We will definitely use them again! 


Nick and Lorelle - First Home Buyers

Buying for the first time, we found the communication from the team at Property Solutions 101 really clear and helpful in guiding us to a purchase. The properties they recommended met our brief and their advice was well informed from their own personal property ownership and experience. Not having to negotiate and liaise with real estate agents was nice too!

Luke - Property Investor

We were new home buyers located in Sydney looking to purchase in the Newcastle area. After 12 months of weekend trips leading to nothing but frustration, we made the decision to engage a buyer’s agent to assist us in our search.

Property Solutions 101 came highly recommended to us by friends in the Newcastle area. After meeting with the team we quickly became confident that they had our best interests in mind. They were responsive, professional and worked quickly to short list a number of properties that met our brief. A week after engaging Property Solutions 101 we were in Newcastle attending viewings scheduled and supported by the entire team. They short listed numerous quality properties and provided expert advice with regard to property selection. The following morning we asked them to proceed with the negotiations on a newly built home. That evening we exchanged on the property due to Dale’s sound negotiation strategy and quick response.    

Within a month of engaging Property Solutions 101 we settled on our new home. Property Solutions 101’s quality service, expertise and negotiation skills secured us a property within a very short timeframe and saved us $15,000 or more off the price. They further saved us the stress of dealing with agents, conveyancers and financial institutions from exchange to settlement. We cannot thank the Property Solutions 101 team enough for their assistance and recommend their services with confidence.     

Margaret & Brett - Property Investors

We were interested in purchasing an investment property but having our own businesses and 2 kids, we didn't want to spend every weekend attending open homes, so we engaged the team at Property Solutions to find a property for us. The fact that Property Solutions 101 provided a fixed price agreement really put our minds at ease.

The process was so hassle free. The team’s knowledge of the Newcastle area made us feel totally comfortable with leaving the search to them and when they did present a property to us it was the right property for us, which we ended up purchasing.

The Property Solutions 101 team’s communication throughout the entire process was informative but not intrusive and their friendly easygoing nature meant that we felt totally comfortable to ask any questions we felt necessary.

In addition, Kylie was able to use her superior negotiation skills and market knowledge to obtain for us a very well priced investment property, which perfectly matched our needs. 

Kathy & Bill - Property Investors

Renovating for a living is something we have always wanted to do. We had researched the area but when it come to the crunch we didn't have the courage to purchase fearing it would not be the right property in the right area. This would be our first ever investment property and we felt a real pressure to get it right. We went to many auctions only to miss out and began to feel that it was just "too hard".

Bill read up and suggested we get a buyers agent. I thought this was an unnecessary cost. We went on to attend many auctions only to miss out and began to feel that it was just "too hard".

On signing up with Property Solutions 101, within 2 weeks they secured us a property in one of the hottest parts of town. We never thought in a million years we could afford to purchase in that area, now instead of renovating and selling, we are renovating to live in it. 

We felt comfortable with the team right from the start. They did all the research, negotiating and dealt with the solicitor and mortgage broker direct. It was a very easy process. 

We now plan on doing it all over again in 6 months time and will definitely be going through Property Solutions 101.

Frances – Property Investor

Moving from the Central Coast to Newcastle was proving much harder than I expected, with a lot of driving to open houses and not knowing the suburbs well enough to be confident in my purchase. Meanwhile, the market was starting to hot up! So I decided to use a buyer's agent - and happily I discovered Property Solutions 101.

House-hunting with the team at Property Solutions 101 turned my very stressful experience into an enjoyable one. An experienced renovator and investor who really knows Newcastle and its suburbs ("You wouldn't want to buy a house in that street, the creek floods badly..."), Kylie was calm and courteous; nothing was too much trouble.

All in all, I found Kylie and her team to be very knowledgeable, professional and supportive, and I can highly recommend them. 

Matt Fry – Property Investor

I would like to thank  Property Solutions 101 for all their help in purchasing my first investment property. They have provided excellent service throughout the entire buying process, nothing was ever a problem and I was always kept up to date with how things were progressing.  

The team provided outstanding knowledge of the local area and was always happy to chat about different property investment options. I would happily recommend the team at Property Solutions 101 for anyone interested in property investing, and I will definitely be using their services again in the future. 

Justin – Property Investor

My partner and I would like to thank the team at Property Solutions 101 for finding us a great development site in the Lake Macquarie area. We would never have had the opportunity to purchase this great site on our own without their help. They were able to negotiate a fantastic price and supply all the information needed to buy the property in a timely manner before it was advertised. Their combined years of knowledge helped to identify the potential of the site and to establish quickly what our options were as far as what could be built on it.

I would highly recommend the team at Property Solutions 101 to anyone looking to purchase a property in the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie areas and their knowledge and experience are second to none and of enormous value. Thanks again.

Mikaela – First Home Buyer

Kylie recently assisted me in purchasing my first home. Throughout the whole process, she offered professional support and guidance which ensured purchasing my first home was an enjoyable experience. With Kylie’s help and guidance, all matters were dealt with promptly including settlement and exchange, allowing for the best possible outcome. The whole experience was positive and I would highly recommend Kylie as a buyer’s agent to anyone purchasing a property.

Shereen – Next Home Buyer

Thanks so much for all your help with purchasing our property. You achieved what we thought was unachievable and now we have a home to move into that we love. Many, many thanks for your hard work in precious family time, we really appreciate the sacrifice not only you but also your family made for us.

We couldn’t have secured the deal, nor achieved this price without your input and one would have no hesitation recommending you to anyone.

Kris & Brian – Property Investors

Thanks very much for your patience in helping us with our property purchase in Newcastle. Your honesty, commitment and enthusiasm to the cause was fantastic, and a welcome relief from our own frustrated efforts and time constraints. We feel that we received true value for the fee, and your ongoing assistance with introductions to property and pest inspectors, tradesmen and architect in the period since has also been of immense benefit to us with further time savings and no added stress.

Scott Tyrrell – Property Investor

Thank you and the wider Property Solutions 101 team for helping me purchase my first house. I’m really happy with the result and using their services made the whole process a lot easier for me.

I particularly wanted to commend Property Solutions 101 for their help and assistance. The team always made themselves available either on the phone or in person and they really made an effort to ensure I was kept in the loop with how things were progressing. Being new to the property investment market I particularly appreciated their efforts to pass on their knowledge, and appreciated the time they took to explain strategies and various options to me. I would happily recommend Property Solutions 101 to any family and friends searching for assistance buying property.

Mitch and Katherine – First Home Buyers

My partner Katherine and I had been trying to buy a house for over 12 months before we decided to engage Property Solutions 101. We were trying to buy in a very competitive market and they helped us find the right place for a fair price. Property Solutions 101 took a lot of the hassle away by undertaking the necessary research, phone calls and emails required to be done prior to making an offer on game day. They helped us stay at the front of the pack and also gave us reassurance that we were looking at houses that were right for us and within our price range. As first home buyers we found Property 101 solutions help and guidance very reassuring

Tim and Alyssa – First Home Buyers

Property Solutions 101 did a lot of the work for us saving us the time, which we didn’t have. The local and industry knowledge helped us to stay away from pitfalls and maximise opportunities especially this being our first home.

Early inspections of houses (pre-market) that allowed us to keep costs down and get the pick of the properties. Property Solutions 101 did all the leg work of the initial internet and agent searches, then inspections, then even getting cheques to the right places at settlement! 

Andrew – Property Investor

When we finally decided to purchase an investment property we opted for Newcastle for many reasons. The size and friendly nature of the City, its’ beautiful beaches and parks, its proximity to family in Sydney, and the fact we consider it to have an extremely bright future.

Being 1500 kilometres away in Tasmania would have made our task very difficult had it not been for the team at Property 101. From the outset Kylie was confident in reassuring Bridget and I that our goal was easily achievable with their support.

Following this point we were more of less “case managed” by the team who were professional, polite, approachable and accessible at all times. Their passion for, and knowledge of, Newcastle is second to none and this helped us enormously.

Their guidance in finding us a property with ‘a point of difference’ (somewhat of a company mantra) was invaluable. Following a virtual video tour and photos taken of the local environment, including planned developments, we felt confident enough to buy our property understood but unseen. It was a great joy when we finally got to visit our investment property and meet up with Kylie.

The whole Property Solutions 101 team have been brilliant with everything, from assisting us to find the right conveyancer, an expert builder for the inspection report, and excellent professionals for the work required on the property. Tenants have since been found and we’ll look forward to our continued association with the company through our property manager within Property Solutions 101. 

Donald Barnett – Seachangers & Family Home Buyers

I would very much like to thank you Property Solutions 101 for your excellent assistance in finding an appropriate property in the Newcastle area. The personal service you provided was really invaluable and enabled me to make a sensible decision very readily. 

Living in Sydney as I do and not being very keen on driving it was difficult for me to check and view many properties independently but with your friendly assistance and advice life was made much easier.  My family are now settling in Broadmeadow and beginning to enjoy all that Newcastle can offer. 

I very much appreciated your smoothing of the purchase process by introducing me to a local conveyancer and building inspector and advising about local schools, shops and even coffee shops!

I have no hesitation in promoting yourself and the business to my friends and relatives.

Sue Mankelow – Next Home Buyer

As an older woman I found the prospect of buying a home very daunting. Especially as I had a bad experience with the selling agent before. The situation was complicated by two facts. The first was my ignorance of the real estate business. The second was the fact that the property I liked was being sold by people whom I had known for a long time. They had already refused an offer from me and I did not want to lose their friendship. I had pretty much given up on the whole idea when someone suggested Kylie Frearson at Property Solutions 101. Kylie was pleasant and professional from the start and worked hard to get me a good deal. She kept me up to date throughout and acted quickly and efficiently. And, yes, my friendship with the vendors has survived intact.

After Kylie had successfully and rapidly negotiated the purchase, I realised she had saved me a small fortune. Previously paying an agent to buy a property for me seemed like an unnecessary extravagance. The whole experience was so positive and the outcome was so good that I would never hesitate to recommend Kylie as a buying agent.

Melanie and Julian – Next Home Buyer

With my partner working interstate, I endured much stress and frustration making multiple trips to open houses on a Saturday with an 8-month-old baby only to find the property had already been sold by the Monday. The property market in Newcastle was just moving too fast for us.

Property Solutions 101 was a lifesaver, they listened to our needs, found houses that met our criteria before they went onto the open market and had such extensive knowledge of the Newcastle area which we didn’t have being from Sydney. We can’t recommend them enough.

Sam Leigh – Property Investor

To anyone considering a buyers agent in Newcastle, you can be confident you have found the right person in Kylie from Property Solutions 101. I recently bought an investment property and with a number of changes to the brief, Kylie adapted exceptionally well and never missed a beat. Even offering great advice throughout the process. I would not only recommend her service but also look forward to working with her again in the future.

Andrew and Nicole – First Home Buyers

With my partner & I being first home buyers, we really had no idea about the whole process that goes with buying a house and everything that’s involved. Having Kylie help was great, she really explained things to us and helped us find a lovely house for below the asking price. It’s definitely worth having her on board during the exciting and somewhat stressful time as her experience and professionalism is second to none.

Clair and Jake – First Home Buyers

Just like many first homeowners, our joyful experience was tainted by not having the skills and knowledge to negotiate or even communicated with real-estate agents effectively. At the beginning we were given misleading information from real-estate agents and information that we could not interpret or comprehend. Being first homeowners, we were not aware of property or land value and once we found our dream home, we had no knowledge on what needed to be done first or how the process worked.

With the professional support and guidance offered by Kylie Frearson, our once tainted experience, very quickly turned into a very exciting and pleasant experience. With the help of Kylie and her professional knowledge, we managed to secure our dream home, sign contracts, have settlement settled within four weeks and all legal matters were attended to.

Kylie’s work has been a major factor and contribution to a smooth, exciting and successful entrance into the housing market. We highly and confidently recommend Kylie Frearson as a trustworthy, reliable, and professional expert in her field of expertise.

Nathan May – Next Home Buyer

Kylie recently assisted us with selecting an agent and best method of sale for our house. From our first meeting with Kylie we were put at ease about the whole process. She took the time to personally answer any questions we had and were not palmed off to an assistant. We felt so comfortable with Kylie and nothing was too much trouble.

We found her to be at all times to educated, courteous, polite and friendly. She was always prompt and delivered on her promises. When she negotiated our fees and marketing campaign we felt that we had nothing to worry about as we knew she was completely in our corner and had our best interests furthermost in her dealings. We commend her highly and feel very lucky that she represented us in this highly stressful stage in our life. Her professionalism and commitment to the task were second to none. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her to anyone that may require the services of an experienced professional.
