What others say about us

We met Gavin some 4 years ago when we were looking to buy our current home. He showed us few properties, but we didn't end up buying from him at the time. However, his professionalism, integrity, market knowledge and friendly personality really resonated with us. Over the years Gavin stayed in touch with us, shared his valuable knowledge of the local market and was always eager to answer any questions or queries we may have had. So when we decided to sell our current home we knew straight away who to contact and Gavin has absolutely exceeded all our expectations. We would highly recommend Gavin to anyone looking to sell their property in The Hills area.

Hi Steve, Just a quick note to say thank you for selling our house at Kellyville. Apart from the obvious in that the property was sold for a "market relative" price we found your service to be outstanding and it's pleasing to have dealt with someone in the real estate industry with integrity and honesty. The areas that were impressive were: constant contact advising us of developments; a detailed marketing strategy for our property; prompt sale post us having been listed with another agent for four months; professional image; always available for advice or concerns; solid historical experience (min. 10 years) with real estate in the area strong local knowledge. We have no hesitation in recommending Steve Giacomelli when dealing with Real Estate and would engage his professional services in the future. Regards

Dear Stephen,

We are writing to convey our sincere appreciation for the level of professionalism and enthusiasm that you displayed, when recently selling our home at Kellyville. After all the information and communication we had with others, Our choice to engage Guardian Realty was because we had the feeling that you will achieve what you promised, so we trusted you to sell our property, later on, you smoothly handled the sale of our home like an easy task. Selling a property is at the best of times, a stressful event. However, not only did you offer experienced informative advice on the presentation of the property, but your approach when we were faced with the decision of reaching a final sale price, was neither obtrusive nor domineering. It was evident you knew the market in our area and you were working with us.

The feedback after every open house inspection: your phone calls immediately after the inspections were very reassuring. The follow ups a day or so later were informative and established possible interested buyers and the state of the market. Thank you for your efforts and persistence in selling our property, Relfa and I believe you were acting in our interest not just out to get a sale at any price. May I take the opportunity to enhance that your and friendly, positive attitude and professional manner in which you marketed our property was decisive to achieve the sale of it. From appraisal to settlement we were most impressed with your attention to detail and expertise during the whole process. The end was very refreshing and if we were to sell a property in the future we would not hesitate to engage your services again. Details: Selling: We knew you would and you did a great job, sold it at a good price, against the odds and in a record time.

We can say now, were not surprised. Marketing & Advertising: Not overdone, It was Very Good. Service: Mature, personal and professional business Like, Excellent! Commission: On the spot and reasonably, not expensive at all. Open House: You made it happen working in with the difficult tenant! Price Achieved: Yes, you were right in thinking that we would be happy with the results. Communication: You kept us informed at all times even out of hours or during your holidays, always reliable and Up To Date. You always reply to phone calls and help sort out queries. You definitely put yourself out for people. Your communication skills excelled in this very competitive market. Thank you so much for everything!

Gavin Weekley has done an exceptional job of selling our home in the past few months. In a difficult market his honesty and professionalism was admirable at every turn. His contact with us and potential buyers was first class, he followed up every open house and viewing of the house with interest parties and got back to us quickly with relevant information. He drove the marketing of our home directing us with knowledge of the local market, he did not waste a minute of our time or money, he had one aim to sell our house and that is what he achieved in a very small amount of time. The most impressive part of dealing with Gavin Weekley has been his integrity, he is trustworthy, honest and the hardest working real estate agent I have ever dealt with. I cannot speak too highly of him and highly recommend Gavin Weekley Your Sincerely,

I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for the service provided to my family by your company and specifically by Stephen Giacomelli. Early this year we saw ourselves with one of the biggest decision of our life which was to sell or not our house which we have lived in for 31 years. With this came a lot of questions like what price, at what time, how to prepare the house etc etc etc. We made that call early in December to Stephen and from then on everything was made so easy. We received a visit from Stephen and things were discussed and prepared. Stephen gave us some suggestions on how to prepare the house for selling and this included some drastic measures, like cutting down some of my wife’s favourite trees and bushes, removing from the house some ‘close to our heart” furniture etc. We also had high expectation on what we expected out of the sale of the house and this was not only achieved but surpassed. From that date in December we have been receiving daily phone calls keeping us informed of any developments. The house was sold in record time and all of our expectations in regards to service and price have been met or exceeded. For all of the above we would sincerely thank your company and specifically Stephen and would not hesitate to recommend your company to others, Regards

Good morning Ben,

Thank you so much for your email; it was a real pleasure to work with you too and we really appreciate the time and effort you put in to filming with us. Sometimes (often!) the demands of TV and those of real estate don’t quite match up, as I’m sure you know, so thanks for your patience.

I’ve never seen an agent work so hard to get a sale across the line at auction, despite the distractions of windy weather, continuous sirens and having a film crew in the midst of things.

It really looked like it wasn’t going to happen at one point (great tension for our show!) but you kept supporting and encouraging and pushing Sue till the end – huge well done and a great result.

I really hope we get to work together again – in fact, would you like Andrew’s job if he decides to retire?!

We first tried to sell our home in 2010 with a local Galston agent who overpriced the property and then lost interest half way through the process. We decided to try again in 2011 and engaged Stephen Giacomelli of Guardian Realty. In a challenging sales environment (as it was then) we were impressed by his 'never say die' attitude. Even though we did not sell in 2011 due to the conditions, we had little hesitation to again engage Stephen in 2013. He told us truthfully the time it would take to sell (4 -6 weeks - it did) and worked hard to negotiate with the buyers to bring about a sale that we were delighted with. Throughout he demonstrated great communication so that we were not left guessing as to the interest in our home and the realistic price range for it. We have no hesitation in recommending Stephen Giacomelli & Guardian Realty in selling your home. Stephen thanks again for all your help. We can now move on to the next stage of our life and appreciate the part you played in that.

Dear Gavin, We are very pleased with the level of service you provided to us, which has led to the successful sale of our property on 22 Burrawang.

All your persistence, determination and hard work -- well, ours too  -- have paid off! Thank you very much for your guidance and help throughout this process. It was a pleasure to deal with you.

“Joel has been professional with us right from the start, spending time with us to explain the process and what he reckoned would work best in selling our property. He gave us realistic expectations and also provided prompt feedback on potential buyers post each open house. Selling our property for the first time was an emotional process but Joel guided us in the right direction as a quick positive sale was eventually the result we wanted, and not mulling over the “what-ifs”. We would recommend Joel to people who are looking to sell or buy in the area as we believe he has the right knowledge and attitude for the best result.”
