Robert, together with David, were simply outstanding and on a completely different level to any agent with whom we have dealt. From the outset, they communicated clearly and often, making critical recommendations and providing sound reasoning. They developed a carefully considered, comprehensive and bespoke sale campaign which they proceeded to execute flawlessly. They kept us regularly and completely informed of progress, both at an informal level and by formal periodic reporting. The marketing elements of the campaign was cleverly focused and accompanied by an impressive level of data analysis. In the end, we achieved a very pleasing result and that is primarily due to the superb professionalism of Robert, David and their impressive supporting cast. Thank you both - you have truly taken real estate agency to a whole new level.

David was the agent for our first Sydney property purchase and recent sale which achieved a price beyond our wildest expectations. The process was a learning curve for us and he was very helpful, knowledgeable, professional and instilled complete trust in his ability to do the job with a successful outcome. It certainly took a lot of the stress out of it and can't recommend David highly enough.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for professionalism and diligence during the course of the campaign. As I mentioned to you on the phone I really appreciated your guidance and support through the process. At no time did I feel pressured. At each stage I felt you had my best interests at heart.

Thank you so much for being the ONLY Real-estate agent I’ve currently found in Sydney who is willing to be honest, not only is your candour refreshing it is much appreciated, after all, we buyers are pretty savvy these days!

Anne and I want to thank you for your advice and help on the sale of our apartment. As I told you when we engaged you, we were so impressed by your service when you acted for the vendor from whom we bought the apartment that we decided to retain you when we decided to sell ourselves. Your advice and recommendations about presentation of the apartment and the sale process were spot on and we thought you did a great job in locking down the actual sale. We were also very impressed by your continuing service after exchange of contracts when the deal was already done, even to letting the removalists in at 7.30am! This was most helpful, given we were out of town. We would be pleased to recommend you to any other vendors.

A & M Gray

We chose David Gillan to sell our family property because the proposal which he submitted indicated that they had listened carefully to our needs and aspirations for the sale. The marketing strategy which David prepared was tailored to the specific characteristics of our mother’s home and was respectful of the input from us all. The proof of the professional approach taken by David was evident on the morning of the auction when we saw a good humoured but determined air of competition in the room. It was clear that David had engaged with each of the potential buyers who appeared to be well advised about the process and the auction to follow. The auction was lively and conducted in a professional yet relaxed manner resulting in an excellent outcome. We would definitely recommend David to anyone wanting an agent who works hard and efficiently to secure a superior result.

We have bought and sold a large number of properties on the Lower North Shore over the years. We have a huge respect for David. He works extremely hard to achieve the best results for his clients. The service he provides is over and above what any other agent has ever done for us.
