My children and I made the decision late last year to sell my investment property in Forster. We decided to approach Ashley as we knew him from his hometown of Gloucester and wanted someone who understood what we had been through in making this decision. Due to State and Federal Elections we knew things would be a little slow but just over 12 months it was sold. Ashley contacted us to discuss what was going on in the area and we made a decision in regards to price and soon after we had a sale. Ashley and his team also were my agent for the rental and they were very good. Very impressed with the sale of my property.’

By chance I purchased my property with Susan O’Brien and enjoyed such a competent, quality experience whilst dealing with her, that when I decided to sell, I tracked her to a new agency to enjoy a stress free, quality experience. Susan raised the prospective buyers offer by a whopping $90,000 and used her expertise to make a very fast sale. Susan is an extremely professional agent with above average people skills.’

We where lucky enough to have Ashley take up the responsibility of the sale of our property. Informative throughout the process, flexible in his approach and a casual friendly character. We have bought and sold a number of properties over the years and dealt with a different office each time. We don’t have to look anymore. Chris and I couldn’t recommend Ashley highly enough. Great result, Great bloke.’

Chris & Christine Maconachie | Forster | November 2019


My house sold at the top of the bracket Ashley quoted, after the first showing. Much higher than other agents would list it for!’

Glen Miles | Tuncurry | November 2019


Ashley was a great guy to deal with through our purchase. He was up front and very trustworthy. He made my family feel comfortable and really helped us through the process. If I was selling a house in Forster…. he would be my first choice with out a doubt. And just to add that all the office staff were amazing also.’

Thomas & Narelle Baker  |  Forster  |  October 2019


Ashley helped us achieved our goal. My partner and I have been on the hunt for a house on the water in the suburb of Tuncurry for the past 6 months. It had been a very stressful disappointing time missing out on properties because of real estate agents and some questionable ethics by some. It was very refreshing to finally meet Ashley who from the first conversation was very reassuring that he would keep us updated with the sale and would always contact us to give us a fair opportunity to purchase the property we were looking at. Ashley was true to his word and after some robust negotiations we were successful in purchasing the property. Ashley has also been extremely helpful and available with all our questions and requirements post the acceptance of the property. It was really refreshing to work with Ashley, as we had lost confidence with other agents in the area. We are pleased to have bought our property through Ashley.’

Michael Brooks & Tracey Simmons  |  Tuncurry  |  September 2019


This is the second property I’ve purchased through Ashley at Elders Forster-Tuncurry. On both occasions, I believe the sales wouldn’t have been possible without Ashley’s great communication and negotiation skills. His professionalism and knowledge of market value is to be commended and both times achieved very close to asking price of the property. I believe this is a result of not putting a ridiculous price on the property initially and scaring off potential buyers and getting false hopes for the vendor. Ashley was easily contactable at any hour of the day or night and was always prompt and punctual with letting you know about any progress or issues throughout the sale. I’d highly recommend anyone to Ashley at Elders Forster-Tuncurry, that was looking to sell or buy in the Mid North Coast area!!’

Adam Wilson  |  Gloucester  |  September 2019


From the first meeting, to the sale, Ashley made the entire process as stress free as possible. He was pleasant, polite, honest, informative, knowledgeable, accommodating and helpful. He knew the local market, gave excellent advice and communicated well producing a great result.’

Vicki Worth  |  Tuncurry  |  September 2019


Susan was very professional, personable and followed up on all communication.’

Cindy Sampson  |  Forster  |  September 2019


We have undertaken several property negotiations and settlements with Ashley and have always found him to be very reliable in his advice and prompt with his communications. He has proven to be a man of integrity and credibility. We would happily recommend Ashley for any business dealings and look forward to continuing to work with him on future projects.’

Kent & Leanne Sansom  |  Gloucester  |  September 2019


I am very pleased with the professional way Ashley Hollingsworth from Elders Real Estate Forster-Tuncurry handled the sale of our villa. It was on the market within a few days and sold within a few weeks at a very good price. I would not hesitate to recommend Ashley to future clients.’

Doug & Roslyn Cleal  |  Forster  |  September 2019


Ashley’s local knowledge and easy going manner made him a great agent to deal with in the recent purchase of our property. He took on the role of a conduit between us and the vendor during purchase negotiations and was able to provide valuable insights and suggestions regarding, what I suspect were, our somewhat unusual ideas. Ashley wasn’t pushy but took the time to check in to keep us up to date with the progress of the sale and was always available to answer questions. I would certainly be happy to recommend Ashley to anyone looking to sell or buy on the mid-coast area.’

Hamish & Jodi Maple  |  Gloucester  |  August 2019


It’s an absolute pleasure to provide a recommendation for Ashley, from the start through to the exchange of contracts Ashley was ahead of every situation. From his strategy pitch through to buyer feedback it was constant and relevant and found myself never having to chase Ashley up for any updates. Basically everything he said he would do he did and definitely added plenty of value to the process. Being in property myself my service level expectations are very high and Ashley easily met them all. I would highly recommend Ashley for any property transaction.’

Arland Domingo & Tammy Kershaw  |  Forster  |  August 2019


Ashley was very easy to deal with and always available should we need to consult him on our purchase or view the property for any specific reason. He is friendly, polite and understanding to our needs. We would recommend him to anybody wishing to sell or purchase a property.’

Phillip & Valarie Steele  |  Forster  |  August 2019


Ashley provided us with great professional service in the purchase of our home. He responded quickly to all correspondence and provided answers promptly. Polite, friendly and went out of his way to make sure the purchase went through with ease. Would highly recommend Ashley.’

William & Sonya O’Neil  |  Rainbow Flat  |  August 2019


It was a pleasure to have Ashley as my agent, who made the sale of my property a memorable experience. Ashley is an experienced agent who was in constant contact with me through every step in the sale of my house. He is very professional and made it easy to understand what was happening at all times. He organised inspections in a professional and timely manner, which helped with a quick sale of my property. I would recommend Ashley as an agent for anyone wanting an experienced and extremely professional Real Estate Agent to sell their property. Thank you Ashley.’

Ashley focused on our wishes for the sale of our house from the start. It was clear from the beginning he was working hard to get the result we would like.’

Ashley went out of his way to point out the finer details of the property we were purchasing, always keeping us informed during the sale process.

Michael & Beverley Rogerson  |  Rainbow Flat  |  July 2019


Ashley Hollingsworth has shown us several properties, and we have finally purchased one. Throughout our search, over several years, Ashley was very easy to contact, very flexible with time to arrange inspections, and not at all pushy. He kept us informed of where things were up to during the negotiation process, and was attentive to problems, liaising with our solicitors, as they arose during the contract discussions. We have no hesitation in recommending Ashley as an agent.’

Don & Michele Dunlop  |  Gloucester  |  July 2019

Paul Hryce & Sharon Ward  |  Forster  |  February 2019


When purchasing our latest acquisition as a holiday home for our family Ashley responded quickly to our urgent request to proceed with the the purchase of this property. Ashley went above and beyond to come to us outside of business hours on a Friday afternoon to complete the paper work – one document had been missed by the solicitors and was sent later that weekend, Ashley again went above and beyond to communicate and come out to us on Sunday so as to have everything complete and guaranteed for Monday morning. Ashley, thank you for your service!’

Enrico & Antonietta Colussi  |  Forster  |  February 2019


The sale of our organisation’s property was in an area where I had no local knowledge of real estate agents or the market. It was also going to pose some unique issues, as the sale was subject to a Grant of Probate. In choosing Ashley to be our agent I had to be confident that he would be able to handle a sale which would be more complicated. However, it is a small but important thing that made my decision easier to choose Ashley and Elders. Although I interviewed five different agents, true to his country upbringing, Ashley took his boots off before coming inside our property! Being associated with rural people myself all my life, that mark of respect for our property indicated someone who was going to pay close attention to even the smallest details and respect our future buyers. Over the last three months, Ashley has worked very closely with me answering my many questions. He introduced numerous clients to the property over the difficult Christmas period, and nothing was a big deal. He was in constant communication with me and always sought my advice. On the day the exchange of contracts took place, I was in the position of having three buyers equally keen to purchase the property. Ashley worked hard to get the sale, and we are more than happy with the price we achieved. We couldn’t have found a better partner to help us with this process!’
