From the moment I walked into Highland property office I was impressed. Meeting Laura McKay was a delight, her bright personality and her enthusiasm for her job showed through. The fifty-five staff members convinced me immediately, this was the company I should use to sell my property.

Laura, Mat, Mitch and Chase all helped in a very efficient way to obtain an amount well above the reserve price.

Many thanks,

Zelda Woods.


Dear Laura,

Just wanted to drop a quick note to sincerely thank you, and the Highland team, for the professional service provided to us during the sale (quick sale!) of our home. Your superior knowledge of the market, expert advice and brilliant negotiation skills netted us an outstanding result and all within the first 2 weeks of our marketing campaign! We are still blown away by the result.

Again, we cannot thank you enough and we look forward to dealing with you and the Highland team again one day.

Andrew and Anita.


Dear Laura,


Just a quick note to thank you and the staff of Highland Property Agents for your help and support in selling our home. Being the first time we experienced this, your knowledge and expertise was of great comfort to Alyssa and myself.

From the first meeting we were impressed with your company values and standards. Every question we asked you had the answers for. Your market estimation was spot on from the beginning and certainly helped us planning for our move.

We cannot thank you enough for your efforts on auction day, where your negotiating skills came through and increased our sales price beyond our expectations!

We sincerely thank you again and cannot speak highly enough from our dealings with both yourself and Highland Property Agents. We wish you all the best for the future and we will most defiantly refer all our friends and family to you.

Thanks again,

Luke & Alyssa Pallister

Laura was brilliant from start to finish. She was friendly, honest and worked with us to get the result we wanted. She managed Covid and tenants effortlessly and ensured we knew what was happening throughout the process. I have recommended her and the team to friends as having interviewed other agents, Laura’s approach and manner was a standout.

You are an absolute superstar!! Thank you so much! Penny could not have praised anymore at how amazing you were! She and our whole family are ecstatic!!! It was the best news to hear! And to get such a good price for it! You are a true professional and so good at your job! I'm glad a lovely family has bought the home as it’s a nice little cottage and I’m sure they'll be very happy there!!!

Thanks again so much Laura! You're help, professionalism and pure skill at what you do got this one over the line in the best and fastest way we could have imagined!

Thank you David and Laura from Highland for selling our apartment.

When we decided to sell our apartment, we shopped around and were impressed with Highland’s brief, offering a professional, sophisticated marketing plan which was to give us clear communication and the promise of control still in our hands.

We were thrilled to see that they delivered on their promise and sold our property with integrity. We felt very much in control of the entire proocess without pressure.

Laura was a delight to work with, keeping us regularly updated in a very friendly yet candid manner. I have no doubt that it was because of her tenacity, professionalism and knowledge of how best to sell our property that won through in the end, we really appreciate all her hard work.

We wish Laura and David all the best in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending Highland to anyone looking to sell their property.

Kind regards,

Martine and Ed Johnston

Dear David,

Just a short note to express my wife and I's thanks for the effort Laura McKay and Angela Darlington made in selling our property yesterday. The result is well over our expectations and really helps us move forward in life. Both Laura and Angela were exceptional from our very first meeting and right through the sales campaign. Thank you for amazing service Highland yet again.

Dear Laura,

RE: 75/352 Kingsway, Caringbah

How do I begin to thank you for all your dedication and effort in selling my unit recently?

It was not an easy task, but from our first meeting with David Highland and yourself I felt at ease. You had very good ideas when it came to marketing and remained positive throughout the campaign which was comforting to me, as I had my doubts that property would sell.

Your continuous follow up and communication was much appreciated and I think you did a tremendous job in securing a great figure for me at the end.

After interviewing a number of agents, your integrity, honest opinion and spot on advice are what stood out among the rest.

I would not hesitate in recommending your company, and in particular yourself to friends and family.

I wish you a wonderful year in your career.

Yours faithfully,

Kim Sams

Dear David & Laura

Wow! What a great result!

Michelle and I can’t thank you enough for the effort you and the Highland Property Team put into getting our house sold for a great price and in such a short time frame.

Over the past 12 months we have been impressed by your growth and domination of local real estate, and it was that combined with your high energy, enthusiasm, and sharp marketing which convinced us that Highland Property Agents were the ones to get our listing….and we were not disappointed.

But the biggest surprise for us came from your suggestion to promote and ‘open house’ inspection on your website a week before our official auction campaign was due to commence. And the rest is history, as our buyer came through the next day and ultimately exchanged contracts 2 weeks later….3 weeks ahead of the scheduled auction date. Amazing!

We have the highest regards for Highland Property Agents and will most certainly recommend you guys to anyone we know who is buying or selling property in the local area.

Well done & many thanks,

Glenn Wheeler.

Dear Laura,

From the first time you stepped into our home, Gary and I felt we had certainly made the right decision of selecting Highland Property Agents for the upcoming sale of our family home. Your smile, laugh, local real estate knowledge, calm manner and total professionalism left us with a very positive feeling. We weren't disappointed.

You and your great team of Dane and Nicole, were always available to answer questions and continually kept us updated on the market movement.

As our nerves took over, you kept us in the loop of how the world of real estate operates. Your exceptional skills, enthusiasm,and friendly manner are a wonderful asset.

Hence we had a very positive outcome! "SOLD SOLD SOLD." Which allowed us to follow our dream "a move to a country acreage."

Thanks also for the support and expert advice re the purchase of our new home. It was much appreciated.

Highland Property Agents, a very polished, professional and amicable team.

Laura, we will certainly be recommending you to our friends and families.
"Positive results come from positive people."

Thanks so much.

Dear Laura,

We just wanted to say a very big thank you for all you did in selling out house and achieving such a great result. We were unsure about putting the house on the market buy your calmness and confidence gave us the confirmation we were doing the right thing. We will be forever grateful. Looking forward to working with you again in the future.

Chris and Brooke Nichols

We have had the pleasure to work with Laura and her team on the sale of our now “sold out” development over the past 12 months.

Laura is certainly an impressive experienced agent and I could not recommend her highly enough to anyone considering her services. Laura priced our development honestly and accurately so that we knew what to expect and then achieved prices that far exceeded our expectations. During all negotiations her extensive knowledge of the high end market place helped secure us fantastic sales results that broke records in the local market. I thank her and commend her for her professionalism and integrity throughout the sales process and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced quality agent

Dear Laura,

We want to thank you for your determination, energy and professionalism in achieving the sale of our property. So many others have over promised and under delivered yet you did not let us down. The last couple of years has been a roller coaster ride with agents and we can finally put that behind us.

You have always been open, honest and thoughtful to our needs. We have been able to trust that when you say you are doing something that it actually happens and we can rely on you. I have found our experience with Highland Property to be an overall pleasant one which is a hard call in the real estate game.

We are looking forward to many more years of dealing with Highland Property for any future home purchases and sales.

Dear Laura,


We just wanted to express our most sincere thanks to both you and the staff of Highland Property Agents in relation to the successful sale of our home.

This is the fourth time we have sold a property and this time was easily the best experience we have had to date. Your valued advice, professional approach, as well as your knowledge and expertise right throughout the selling process was of great comfort to both of us. Most of all though it was your genuinely friendly and caring approach that stood out to us as a major point of difference.

We were impressed by every aspect of the sales process of Highland Property Agents, from the initial meeting with David Highland and yourself, the expert marketing of our property, and finally your skilled negotiation of the sale of our home, just 1 week after the first open house. We also appreciate your contact post the exchange of contract in relation to our future plans. Your genuine interest in our next moves in the property market have been much appreciated.

Again we sincerely thank you and Highland Property team for helping make the sale of our home such a smooth and rewarding experience. We will not hesitate to recommend your services to other people we know who are planning to sell their home.

Warm regards,

David & Sally Groat
