Bringing with her a wealth of knowledge and her vibrant personality, Aimee can’t wait to help her clients achieve their dreams, whether it is buying or selling; her priority is to exceed her clients’ expectations.

" BEST AGENT IN AUSTRALIA! "
Aimee was on point with the whole process! Professional, Compassionate, Organised and so pleasant to deal with. BEST AGENT IN AUSTRALIA!
" Always professional and friendly "
We could not have asked to work with a better agent than Aimee Longbottom. My husband and I were purchasing from overseas and Aimee helped us navigate the Australian market with ease and professionalism. If we had questions they were answered promptly which saved us so much time. Aimee negotiated a great price, was genuine and trustworthy. We are so happy with our new home and we could not have done it without Aimee.
" Aimee went above and beyond "
I had a wonderful experience with Aimee. She continually went above and beyond and assisted me to purchase an investment in Kiama. Aimee made sure I was able to view the property on a day I was available and always offered thoughtful insight with no hard sell or pressure tactics. I was able to secure the property swiftly with fast settlement. To add to my experience Aimee kindly messaged me and offered that I was able to place the sold sticker on myself and she was able to take pictures. Lovely!
" Aimee was just fantastic "
Aimee was just fantastic. Selling a house in Kiama from Sydney was never going to be easy, but Aimee helped in many ways that made it easier for us. From taking bins down the driveway after we filled them, to overseeing purchaser's tradesmen access and being a great conduit between ourselves and the purchaser - after the sale had been made - was very, very appreciated.
" Achieved a result beyond our expectations "
Aimee sold my mother and step-fathers house in Kiama Downs. From our first meeting to the end of the process she offered sound and professional advice and made every step easy. We relied on her very much as we didn’t have a good understanding of the real estate market in the area and couldn’t be present during most of the process. Her advice on the presentation of the property was spot on and with a quick and successful campaign we achieved a result beyond our expectations.
" Aimee's professionalism is outstanding "
I was so lucky to have Aimee as the seller for my recently purchased property. She made the experience of buying a house less stressful than I anticipated, always responded to my countless emails and phone calls in a timely manner and was just so lovely to deal with! Her professionalism is outstanding and I cant recommend her enough for any future buyers or sellers out there.
" Pleasure to work with "
From day one, Aimee has been a pleasure to work with. Her communication, advice and customer service made the entire process of selling our home flow smoothly. Thank you to Aimee and her team -Claire and Kearha for all your help along the way.
" Professional, friendly, positive, approachable and energised "
I found Aimee to be professional, friendly, positive, approachable and energised around the potential sale of my property. She showed genuine interest from our very first meeting and was able to actively listen and demonstrate a solid understanding and appreciation of the attributes and value of my property, not typical of the market, as well as my unique circumstances of only wanting to pursue a sale if I could lock in a particular property for purchase. When my purchase could not proceed, Aimee handled the scenario with aplomb, communicating with care and compassion to the interested parties and buyers and also suggesting ideas and ways forward to ensure we'd explored all avenues. Her communication is excellent and it's clear she really enjoys working with people and understands the importance of 'home'. I felt she was honest and up front with me throughout the process, which I highly valued. I would definitely use Aimee again if re-entering my property to market, as she handled the high volumes of interest and also the circumstances of withdrawing with genuine care and a personal touch.
" Professional, efficient and courteous "
As a buyer's agent I work with many sales agents. I found Aimee to be professional, efficient, courteous and helpful throughout the process. Managing the emotions that a property sale brings up for her vendor, the tenant and my buyer isn't always easy but I felt Aimee and I were able to work well together despite this being my first transaction with her. It was a pleasure working on this deal and I would happily recommend her as she firmly represented her client's interests without ever dropping the ball. Thanks Aimee!
" Very helpful "
Aimee was very helpful in enabling us to find and purchase a property quickly as we had just flown back to Australia. She was able to advice us on different suburbs around Shellharbour and local market conditions. Aimee was knowledgeable about the property we had bought and assist in the negotiation process. Also friendly and trustworthy - recommend
" Bubbly personality "
From the day Aimee entered our home her enthusiasm & bubbly personality shone through. She made the thought of selling our home of 9 years exciting instead of nerve racking and stressful. She was happy to listen to our issues and kept us up to date throughout the progression of the selling and daily reports on the final days. She is very passionate person and totally committed to her job and we would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone we knew who was thinking of selling their home.
" Approachable "
When we first met Aimee we found her to be very approachable and she completely put us at ease in regards to the stressful event we all know as selling your home. When talking to Aimee she always looked you in the eye which to us was sign of confidence and capability in what Aimee was setting out to achieve in getting the outcome we wanted. Aimee's style of marketing was what we both wanted in a Real Estate agent. Needless to say only one day after listing our house sold for the price we hoped it would. Congratulations Aimee on a job well done and I am sure your career which you obviously love will only blossom from here.
" Where do I start!!!!! "
Aimee is not only my agent but she is my LIFESAVER!!! Aimee sold my duplex at a RECORD price and in the first viewing! No stress was involved and I was amazingly surprised and happy with the outcome. The house I sold was in Albion Park and I am currently living in Sydney and also pregnant so it was very hard for me but Aimee came to the rescue!! If I told you how much she helped me id be here all day, lets just say she's probably so glad its all over soon. I feel so lucky that she showed up at my door step with her beautiful persona which made me choose her, I couldn't of dealt with this sale without her kindness. I have had a few agents in the past so I can honestly say she is the best agent to invest in so give her a call.
" Purchase of new home "
Right from the start Aimee's communication was fantastic. We had out first inspection in such a timely manner. We had a few minor issues around the house that we would like to see fixed and Aimee followed up with the vendors to see about having those fixed if we were to make an offer. We make an offer along with others and we were happy to have the winning offer. Again, I believe it was Aimee's great communication skills that made this process run so smoothly as it can be quite stressful. Aimee was always here for us to answer any questions that we had. After the building inspection, we had a couple more concerns with the house. We contacted Aimee with our thoughts on how she was so approachable and her honesty throughout this process. Before settlement we completed the final walk through. Aimee genuinely seemed as excited as we were over this purchase. She did not make us feel like we had to rush while showing us that all of the issues names in the contract had been completed/fixed. And of course was able to answer more questions that we had. That afternoon we met Aimee at her office to get the keys. Along with the keys, she presented us with a lovely house warming gift too! Aimee was a pleasure to deal with and we will recommend her to family, friends and colleagues. Thank you Aimee!
" Honest Agent "
Thank you for the opportunity of placing on record our appreciation of Aimee's exceptional service, her obvious knowledge of the local market is only exceeded by her attention to the one thing that is sadly lacking in some industries, that being her ability to regularly communicate with us and also several other parties involved in our transaction. We would have no hesitation in recommending Aimee to any prospective vendor, confident in her ability to deliver an honest appraisal and deliver a realistic outcome.
" Highly Recommended "
I can't express enough just how helpful, friendly and professional Aimee was. Aimee was easy to deal with and made us feel like more than just another buyer on her books. I would highly recommend Aimee to anyone who is in need of an agent in the Illawarra Region.
" Realestate agent with a kind heart "
Aimee was a pleasure to deal with! She was patient, kind and held her nerve for us as we battled with the bank. Aimee ensured communication was always happening and all parties involved were aware of what was happening. We would highly recommend her and thank her so much for helping us to purchase our family home.
" Emotional sale made easier with a great agent "
Aimee promoted our home with respect, professionalism, efficiency and a value personal approach. Got us a fantastic result in 2 days and made the whole process so smooth and less stressful. Thank you for selling our family home so quickly, you made the emotional decision to move forward with a new stage in our life easier with your support and encouragement
" Done n dusted in days! "
We were so happy with the quick result Aimee achieved for us in a matter of days selling our investment property! The 2nd property she sold for us within a month of each other. Highly recommend Aimee as she is honest, hard working and refreshingly personal.
" Exceeded my expectations "
Aimee and the CCFN team were a delight to work with on my recent purchase. Attentive, accommodating and professional, they offered assistance and clear explanations in every step of my buying process. They have exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend their services to all.
" Negotiated the best possible price "
Elizabeth & I would just like to say how grateful we are that we had Aimee & the whole First National Coast & Country team working with us to sell our house. The market was difficult, the weather was difficult but there was never a difficulty when the CCFN team were working on our behalf. They dealt professionally with every challenge and negotiated the best possible price for our house. Thanks again Aimee, your hard work was very much appreciated.
" The best real estate agent we have ever dealt with "
I just wanted to say thank you so much for your assistance with the purchase of our new house. Both my husband and I found you professional, friendly and helpful. There was no question you couldn't answer or weren't willing to find out. You have kept us fully informed every step of the way and made us feel like more than just another purchaser. You have really gone above and beyond and are honestly the best real estate agent we have ever dealt with. I will certainly recommend you to anyone who is looking for the services of a real estate agent. Thanks again Aimee.
