I would like to take this opportunity to thank yourself and Highland Property agents for the help in the purchase of our house.

After numerous bad experiences with other agents I was starting to think that honesty and professionalism did not exist in the real estate industry, however the dealings that I have had with you have changed my opinion on that. From the start you have demonstrated honesty, integrity and professionalism and have made what is generally a stressful event as seamless as possible.

It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with yourself and Highland and I cannot recommend your group highly enough to anybody, either looking to buy or sell a property in the Sutherland Shire. Further to this I would be happy to personally recommend Highland to anybody that may be looking at buying or selling property in the area.

Many Thanks,

Michael Robinson

To David Highland, Director of Highland Property Agents.

We would like to praise your company and in particular David Smith who is in the process of selling our property 1/26a Burke Rd Cronulla.

We are so impressed with the level of professionalism, respect and care that has been put into the sale of our home. David Smith has put in an amazing amount of time and effort as he has guided us through the whole process and has answered all of our endless annoying questions, always with a smile on his face.

This exceptional service means so much to us as our apartment is not just a property, but our home where we have lived when we married and had our two children.

He has made us feel completely confident in his ability to do the best job in selling our home, with his constant enthusiasm and excellent communication skills.

David is an asset to Highland Property Agents, and he will have our continual business and recommendation for life.

We could not be happier with the service we have received, and could not ask for more even if we were selling a property worth ten times as much as ours.

Kind Regards,

Sturt and Hayley Hodgson

Very easy to deal with. Made us very relaxed about the process and was always on hand if we had any questions. Would definitely buy through Dave again!

David Smith and his team at ‘Highlands Real Estate’ came highly recommended to me when my sister and I were looking recently for an agency to sell my deceased parent’s property. I can honestly say I was not disappointed - they delivered! David meet with us prior to putting the property on the market and clearly explained the whole marketing process without putting pressure on us regarding timing. He advised the estimated price range in which the property was likely to sell and his recommended plan moving forward. All the open houses were run on time which over 150 people attended, and David and his team were a very visual professional presence. I received regular feedback as to where the marketing process was at and the number of interested parties. I felt fully informed throughout the whole journey and was delighted when we sold at the price predicted by David. I too would recommend Highlands, and especially David, Nicole and Nathan to anyone wanting to see a property in Cronulla or adjoining suburbs.

Placing the sale of your family's greatest asset in someone hands is always daunting. However having previously worked with David we were confident he and his team would achieve the best outcome for our family. David has a great team in Nicole and Nathan, all worked together in getting the best result and making the sale process seamless.

This is the second time I have used David and his team and cannot recommend them highly enough. David and his team exceeded our expectations on both occasions. We never once felt pressured to take anything less than the properties true value.

David and his team are passionate about realestate and building relationships well beyond the here and now. It is event from the way they conduct themselves they will be involved in the property industry for many years to come with many repeat clients.

Tony & I wanted to express our appreciation to you on the sale of our house.

We believe you and the Highland team ran the whole campaign with extreme professionalism and we are very happy that we went with you guys.

The Auction day was so nerve racking but you all made us feel so comfortable and we were thrilled with the outcome.

Thank you and we wish you all the best for the future.

Take care,

Tony & Julie Brandtman

I was most impressed after meeting one of your agents, David Smith, following the sale of a neighbouring property and this was the catalyst to engaging him 18 months later on the sale of our home of 25 years. Doing the ‘escape to the country’ was a particularly stressful decision after all our lives in the Shire. David made the transition so seamlessly smooth for us and assisted with the countless worries that occur during selling and buying, although, we, of course bought before we sold which added to the tension. He was as much interested in our new property in the Shoalhaven as dealing with our selling property.

We feel that David gave 100% effort in achieving the best price for us. At no time did we feel that he was busy with other clients as he was always prompt, courteous and well informed of what was happening with our property and the interested parties.

David, what more can I say but “thank you, thank you, thank you” for your time, expertise, professionalism and friendliness we so very much appreciate finding someone such as yourself in the real estate market. Please visit next time you are down this way.

This is the third time David and Nick have sold a property for me and once again I couldn't be happier. Their knowledge on the local market and communication is second to none and not something you will find anywhere else. They are backed by a great team and no question ever goes unanswered. Definitely recommend!

My husband and I were not 100% sure about selling an investment unit in Cronulla. I called David to discuss our situation and bounce a few ideas around. We trust Highland Property Agents knowledge and opinion. We decided to list the unit a couple of months later. We had our first child this year and not once did we have to step foot in their office. The team made the process seamless and professional. Documents were delivered and picked up from our home in Caringbah, never putting us out. We would have been happy to go into the office, but it is these little touches that give Highland Property Agents a point of difference in the market, always putting the customer first.
We had the most incredible result, getting a record sale price for the block and area. I've no doubt the marketing campaign generated good interest to get people to the first inspection. After the first inspection, we had an offer. On the Sunday, David was still working with more offers coming in. He always kept my husband and I up to date, always offering his advice to help us make a sound decision. On the Tuesday, the unit was sold, and we couldn't be happier!!!!
We see Highland Property as family.
Thank you to David, Nicole, Nathan and the whole team at Highland Property Agents.

Dear Peter,

I want to congratulate you and your fine team for the work on the recent sale of our unit in Ballantyne Apartments, Cronulla. David Smith, your agent who worked on this sale, was extremely helpful and professional at all times kept me well informed as to progress.

Obviously we were delighted with the sale price but these results do not come by chance. They require a sound knowledge of the market, the ability to provide 1st class information and the good judgment as to the best way to market the property.

Highland Property Agents can take full credit for achieving this great result and I would like to express my gratitude for the team's efforts and the efforts of David Smith in particular.

Should I be in the market for an agent again I would not hesitate to call on you and I will have no hesitation in recommending Highland Property Agents to any of my friends.

We recently used the services of Highland Property Agents to sell our home, with David Smith as our acting agent.

At every single point of contact, David demonstrated a faultless level of professionalism, and his exceptional service was much appreciated.

David's level of communication, from the moment we listed our property, to the final exchange was excellent. He delivered constant feedback, making sure we were fully informed at every stage of the selling process.

We have absolutely no doubt that David acted in our best interests at all times, and did everything in his capacity to ensure the best possible outcome was delivered for us.

We also valued the expertise and accessibility of David Highland, and the support of his entire team, who efficiently worked together to coordinate great photography, artwork and our marketing campaign, to get the property listed as quickly and stress free as possible.

We would definitely recommend David Smith and Highland Property Agents to anyone looking to sell thier property in the future.

David Smith at Highland Property sold Roker St apartment to us 3 years ago and advised me that it was the right time to buy and that I “could not lose buying this apartment”. Turns out he was absolutely right and I had no choice but to use Dave again when I was looking to sell and upgrade to a house.

When we first asked Dave to sell our place, he walked through the apartment and gave quality advise on what needed to be renovated/fixed before sale. The team went above and beyond during the entire process and we couldn’t be happier with the service and the result.

Dave and his exceptionally professional team of Nicole Mapstone and Nathan Smith achieved the highest price for a non-water front (with no lift) 3 bedroom apartment on record for Cronulla and this put us in an excellent position to buy and renovate a new home over the next 12 months.

We have no hesitations recommending this team to anyone looking to sell their property in the area and we will definitely be using their services again in the future.
