In recent years I doubt that there has been a bigger skeptic or critic on the business practices of real estate agents than me . My recent experience with not only Dave Highland , but all the people at Highland Property Group that I dealt with during a frenzied seven days , has changed my view.
I was not even in the market for a new home , however somewhere in their database , they knew that my wife liked a particular street and they sent me an email noting this and advising that a particular place in that street was coming onto the market within a week. They also attached a link with many photos. My wife went and had a look the following day , loved the property , we agreed on a price that night and exchanged the next day.
That then left me with having purchased a waterfront and having a waterfront I then needed to sell. Dave and his team came to my house the next day and valued it at a range we were happy with and which was actually more than we anticipated. Obviously we wanted as much as possible but needed to be realistic to achieve a quick sale given I had already exchanged on a purchase.They took photos and prepared a link and sent that out to their database on the Thursday advising of a "soft opening " restricted to their database , on the Saturday. 15 groups turned up , 3 contracts issued on the Monday with 2 making appointments to exchange on the Wednesday at a figure at the top of the range. We exchanged on the Wednesday .
I could not be anything but extremely impressed with the professionalism of Dave and his entire team. What stood out is that whilst there is an obvious balancing act , their primary obligation was always to the vendor to achieve the best price and make the who process not only exciting but also easy.
I learnt through this process ( which involved 2 properties worth more than a combined $ 10M ), that Dave is a person of his word who earned my complete trust . He has my highest recommendation and I would have no hesitation using him in the future.

I would recommend anyone considering selling their property to contact Highland Property Group. What was spoken about during my first meeting with David, Laura McKay and Jaymie Kelly they delivered on. Not just a sale but all aspects that supports the sale - pre, during and post. The systems in place gave me confidence I was getting the best opportunity to sell my property and I was able to make the best decision for me when required.

David Highland and his team are the pre-eminent Real Estate Group in Cronulla. They have an intricate knowledge of the Shire property market and handle all aspects of negotiation and sale in a truly professional manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking to purchase or sell property in the Shire. Their reputation precedes them which is one reason that their Property Group seems to list the majority of sellable properties in the area.
