Very Approachable

Simon is very approachable, forthright and has a genuine interest in the client. He makes the process trouble free and makes the negotiation process very transparent. He has a wealth of local market knowledge and utilises that to serve the clients needs. Once you sit down with Simon to detail the needs, he takes care of the process and is a joy to work with. I highly recommend Simon and his professionalism.

Dear Aaron

I am writing to express my gratitude for your help and guidance during the sale of my home. I was highly impressed by your professionalism and expertise. You came recommended to me by a valued friend and I could not have asked for better service. Your accurate predictions relating to the sale, both in terms of timing and current value reflected your considerable knowledge of the real estate market. I appreciated your attention to detail in terms of presentation and the fact that you maintained regular contact with me, updating me on the progress of the sale. It was a reassuring courtesy and much appreciated. Everything arranged by you proceeded like clockwork and the efficiency with which the sale was finalised in such a short period, was impressive. My experience with Gilmour has been extremely positive, due in the most part to your involvement and I have no hesitation in recommending your services to any homeowner looking for a capable and professional agent.

Trustworthy Agent

In December 2013 we spoke with several agents in regards to selling our 3 bedroom duplex in Castle Hill. After meeting Simon it wasn't hard for us to select him as our agent - we felt he was trustworthy, honest and friendly. All of these initial impressions of Simon were reinforced during the period we worked with him to sell our home. Simon knows the Hills market very well and was able to advise us on things buyers look for in this area. We decided to sell at Auction and Simon helped throughout the process so that we could prepare our house for market and then run a successful series of open homes leading up to the auction. Simon was always available to respond to our phone calls and questions. Even on the auction day, he and Grant from the Gilmour team were doing all they could to ensure our house sold for the best price possible. Having Simon as an agent was part of a great experience working with the entire team from Gilmour Property Agents. They all came and looked at our home before it went on the market. All the agents from their office were actively looking to show buyers our property. Simon told us about the team work from Gilmour and we definitely saw that throughout our auction campaign. The auction went very successfully and we were extremely pleased with the price that was achieved! We have no hesitation in recommending Simon and the team from Gilmour. If you are thinking of selling in the Hills District it Luke Howes 's definitely worth speaking to them.

We would like to thank you, craig

Colin & I would like to thank you for all the work you did to achieve the selling of our house. We have lived here 48 & ½ years so this has been our only experience at selling a house. It has been very interesting. We will miss our neighbours & our garden but look forward to living at Gracewood in Kellyville. A new start for two people in their early 80’s. Thanks again, our best wishes to you & the staff.

Hi Craig,

We would like to thank the team at Gilmour, in particular Craig Alexis, for their assistance in purchasing our new house in Glenhaven. Having house hunted in the Hills District for over a year we met with many real estate agents and their teams and rarely did we find any as professional, friendly, approachable and above all else, helpful as Craig and the team at Gilmour. We were immediately put at ease whenever we had queries through the process. If an answer couldn't be given on the spot, Craig would source an answer and come back to us quickly. Craig facilitated a quick and stress free purchase, exactly what we needed after searching for so long! I would have no hesitation in recommending Craig and the entire Gilmour team for your house purchase or sale. Particular thanks also to Simon Kowald and Grant McEnally whom we had many previous dealings with.

Craig Alexis did a fantastic job!

It is with great pleasure I write this letter. When we decided to sell our home we knew we had some homework to do, so we called up 6 real estate agents in our area from Glenwood to Castle Hill and explained what our situation was and would they be interested in coming and having a chat with us on how they do their business and if anything, what we had to do to improve our chances of getting a maximum sale price for our home. And so the process began, but after talking to 5 agents we still weren't quite sure if we were satisfied with any. Our last agent to come and see us was Craig Alexis from Gilmour Real Estate Castle Hill. From the moment we met Craig we had that feeling he was someone we could trust with the sale of our home, he was honest with us from the start, easy to talk with and he listened with great interest with what we had to say and what we wanted with the sale. Asking questions and giving some great advice. When Craig left that day we told him we would let him know either way and thanked him for his time...the next day we decided that Craig was our man for the job. We spoke again and set aside dates to suit for our first open home, everything seemed to be going according to plan and the open home was a great success! Knowing Craig had a huge data base of clients and knowing what they required made us feel secure in that he would be able to sell our home. Eight contracts handed out on the day and a few good offers as well. Craig told us not to worry about another open home as in his opinion it wouldn't be need, and he was certainly right. After some phone calls and quite a bit of bidding from potential buyers he rang with the wonderful news on Monday evening of the price that was the highest bidder and it was a record for a single story home in Glenwood! It goes without saying Craig Alexis did a fantastic job for us and we would have no hesitation in recommending Craig as his professionalism was outstanding and his quality of service excelled! We thank Craig so very much for his sincerity and for doing an absolutely wonderful job in selling our family home & all the best for the future.

A pleasure of dealing

My family and I had the pleasure of dealing with Craig Alexis from Gilmour Property Agents during the buying and selling of our home in December 2013. I chose Craig to sell our home based on the time I spent househunting. I dealt with many agents over a period of 6 months and it was Craig's nature and professionalism that impressed me. I could see the excellent sales results he received for vendors, and I liked his approach to obtain maximum prices for them during such a hot market. He was extremely kind and helpful to both me and my children during my househunting and I was thrilled when he found and showed us our dream home which we were lucky enough to end up as the successful buyers of. When it came time to sell our home we changed our minds from a different agent to Craig, simply because we had been so impressed with him. In selling our home he was efficient and successful. He obtained a figure way more than we were hoping for. He kept us informed of all developments along the way, and sold our home so quickly and smoothly. His warm and genuine personality was heart-warming and reassuring during a potentially stressful time. When we completed the entire buying and selling transactions, he was as thrilled for us as we were. It is with great enthusiasm that I would recommend Craig Alexis from Gilmours to sell any home. If you choose him you will always recall the professional, smooth running and excellent way your house was sol.

Thanks, craig

For the past 24 plus years my wife and I have been fortunate enough to have used the services of realtor Craig Alexis. We first met Craig in 1990 after we had been given the run around by several agents in the area, whom we had discovered would not listen to our requirements and showed us inappropriate homes, that were nothing like we had requested. We had become totally disenchanted with the entire process. While driving through the hills area one morning I noticed a for sale sign on a house that looked interesting so we called the number on the sign later that day and Craig took the call.We explained what we were looking for and that we had wasted several weeks with other agents showing us many houses, none of which were brick or on a quiet street as we had requested. After a lengthy conversation Craig said "Leave it with me for a day or so I will check around and call you back." As promised on the Friday evening he called and asked us to meet him at the office the next day as he had lined up a few viewings for us. To make a long story short the first 2 properties were good but not quite right for us and in the car on the way to the 3rd house Craig said I believe this next one is just what you are looking for. He was correct, we both knew within a few minutes that this property was exactly what we had asked for. We invariably purchased this home and were thrilled that we had finally found somebody who would actually listen to our requirements and find what we were looking for. So began our long association. Craig has proven to be of invaluable assistance to us as our realtor as we purchased and sold several properties over the following years. He is an extremely effective negotiator, is profoundly honest and reliable and displays extraordinary people skills. During the past 24 years Craig has saved us a lot of time, money and aggravation. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Craig's services to anybody who is looking to buy or sell property.

Dear Craig

Wow, haven't we come full circle. After 21years at John St, we finally made the decision to move on for a tree/sea change. I remember only too well 21years ago buying our home from you. The faith and trust we had in you back then made it a simple decision to put our home back in your hands to sell. From the beginning we knew you would work with us to get the best result. Not too many people have such a long standing relationship with their buying agent I don't think. They say selling your home is up on the list of stressful life events, as you will have seen my stress levels were at an all time high during this time, however with you calmly steering us through the process this certainly made it so much easier. A very seamless & simple process. Thank you. We could not have imagined the incredible result you achieved, and are grateful this now allows us to follow some of our dreams. To the rest of your team at Gilmours, thank you for treating us and our home with courtesy and respect at all times when visiting. We wish you every success in the future and will happily recommend you to our friends and neighbours. Thank you again. We are only sorry you do not operate up the North Coast as we would readily buy through you again.

exceeded our expectations

Craig Alexis did an outstanding job of selling our home. We were impressed by his professional manner, his skill in negotiating the sale and his communications with us throughout the process. Our dealings with Craig consistently met and exceeded our expectations and we had confidence in his ability to market and sell our home from the outset. Craig achieved an excellent result for us in just one day of our first Open House. We would highly recommend Craig and the team at Gilmours to anyone considering selling their property.
