"Dear Aldo & Mario,
I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to you and Brace Real Estate for the professional manner in which you managed the sale of my Gooch Street property. I wanted you to know that I was completely happy with the outcome achieved at Saturdays auction. On both a professional and personal level, I really appreciated your professional advice during the process and the time you took to keep me informed at every step of the journey. Your persistence and enthusiastic approach to selling the property gave me a great deal of confidence that we would achieve a positive outcome on Auction day. I have no doubt that it would not have been the success that it was without the benefit of your real estate experience and the rapport you built with both buyer and seller. Good job and thank again"

"Dear Mario,
I would like to thank you and your team for the excellent result on Saturday. Good auction results don’t just happen but are the product of many hours of work by a number of people. I was impressed by the professional manner in which the marketing was conducted with the right amount of feedback on the marketing. Please convey my thanks to all your staff involved with the sale."

"Dear Aldo,
We would like to thank you for your high level of professionalism and commitment to looking after us, during the sale of our family home at 1 Kia Ora Rd, Reservoir. At our first meeting you presented the details of what was involved in a clear plain speak manner. Our questions were answered in a friendly manner no matter how trivial, making us feel confident in your expertise. We chose you Aldo (of Brace Real Estate) because we had confidence in you, looking after our family’s valuable asset. In further meetings and during the many phone calls you continued to establish a positive relationship and understanding of our needs and concerns. One thing that was important to us and was honoured by you and other staff, was that this was still our family home. During open days and other designated times we never felt that anyone had been in our house. It was left the way we had left it. Thank you Aldo, your advice and expertise delivered in a relaxed and friendly manner made this emotional experience for us, a positive one. We have highly recommended you to others knowing word of mouth is a strong advertising tool. We wish you the very best for the future. We would also like to acknowledge the support that James gave us as well. He worked closely with you and us and also showed us the same respect and professionalism. Thank you, James."

"Dear Mario,
We would both like to thank you for the excellent results obtained in the recent auction of our late mother’s home in Preston. Choosing the right estate agent to handle the sale was difficult but we feel that the right decision was made in this instance. Everything, from the initial consultation through to the auction itself was handled in a very professional manner. Once again, our most sincere thanks."

"Dear Aldo Verga,
I am writing to inform you that for the past twelve months I have been working with an elderly client in the community named Mary who has presented to our program because of many complex issues. During the process of the episode we engaged the services of Aldo Verga who visited Mary and presented himself in a very professional and caring manner. Mary was so impressed with Aldo’s professionalism that she decided that she would employ Brace Real Estate to sell her property. Aldo was very compassionate and sincere with his approach to Mary and he was able to restore her trust in people but he also gave her knowledge that fuelled her confidence. With Mary’s trust in Aldo’s hands, she was able to not only sell her property but also purchase a property where she expects to live out her days. Mary speaks highly of Aldo, mostly because of his sincerity and compassionate approach in his work, which she believes is a great reflection of a man with integrity. At the same time, Aldo has supported me by giving me the education and confidence to direct Mary through this difficult process in her later years. Without Aldo’s support our journey may have presented us with many other issues that might have taken its toll on Mary. Mary and I have both held Aldo in high regard and we wish him well in his future endeavours. I wish to acknowledge Aldo’s integrity and skill by informing you of our experience so that you too can be aware of his great effort and level of professionalism"

"Dear Mario & Daniela,
On behalf of our residents, their families and the Ashcare Committee of Management, we would like to thank you both for your generous contribution to our annual Dinner Auction held at the Veneto Club. Mario, we are most grateful for time and effort you put into our big fundraising evening. Your relaxed style and engaging attitude encouraged more people to take part in the "game" of bidding for the prized auction lots, playfully pushing purchase prices just a little higher to raise even more funds. Not only did you give so freely of your time for us, but we also appreciated your donation of the desk lamp, which was auctioned with many other items so generously contributed by small businesses and private donors. Thanks for helping to make the night such a wonderful success."
John Bindon

"Dear Mario,
On behalf of the Carey Donvale Parents’ Association, I wish to express to you our utmost thanks and appreciation for all your help on the evening of our recent variety night. You were able to "extract" if I may use that word, the most from people and we had an overwhelming response to our Auction items. It was very generous of you to offer your time when you were at a social function, and it was most pleasing to note the generosity of those people who were also seated at your table. Thank you again, Mario, you certainly carried your section of the evening off with style and aplomb."

"Dear Mario,
I am writing to thank you and W Brace & Associates for donating the two advertising signs to promote the EPIC Fair. The signs looked great and I am sure helped promote the Fair. The Fair was a great success with over 2000 people attending, many staying all day and enjoying the beautiful weather. All proceeds from the fair will directly assist EPIC to continue to provide vital programs and services for our children with special needs. Many thanks again for supporting this event."
