I found Gerard's approach to be professional at all times, and his level of service was excellent. Gerard is a good quality sales professional, doesn't use tricks or gimmicks, and is transparent throughout the process. Gerard is pro-active and responds to all enquiries in a timely manner. I would recommend Gerard as an agent if you have a property to sell, or are considering buying."
M Sorci (Mount Pleasant) - SELLER wrote: " Gerard has recently sold two of our blocks in the suburb of Mount Pleasant. Gerard was always friendly and courteous and very easy to deal with whilst always maintaining the highest level of professionalism. He was always available for calls or meetings and his good sense of humour and easy going, calm nature made us feel at ease. He kept us well informed and has made the process of selling our blocks very quick, easy and stress-free. We were also very pleased that he was able to obtain the prices that we were hoping for. I wouldn't hesitate to using his services again should the need arise"
A RICHARDS (Mount Pleasant) - SELLER wrote: "Gerard recently sold my property in Mount Pleasant and what a success it was! Not only did the property go under offer before the first home open, the price was exactly what I had hoped for despite the current market. Gerard has a great sense of humour, is very easy to deal with and is completely committed to his work and his clients. He listens carefully, is meticulous in everything he does, stays calm under pressure, finds answers when he needs to and is very supportive. What impresses me the most though, is that he is proactive in everything he does, nothing is left to chance! A lot of agents will tell you what you want to hear but Gerard actually delivers and makes things happen. It’s been a great pleasure dealing with Gerard and I look forward to many more property deals together. Thanks Gerard and well done"

I have no hesitation in recommending Gerard and know that he will always provide honest advice in a friendly, down to earth manner."
LINDA LE (Perth) wrote: "I met Gerard a few years ago when he was semi-retired from successful business endeavours. Though he was a client of mine, Gerard has been a tremendous source of knowledge, wisdom and help for my business. He has a wealth of experience in business operations as well as managing quality business relationships. I am glad that he is bored with retirement as I trust Gerard will be of significant value to his clients and new journey in real estate."
MALCOLM C (Perth) wrote: I have known Gerard for many years both as a business professional and as a friend. When Gerard was running his highly successful business, he demonstrated a strong focus in understanding the needs of his clients and providing significant value services in helping meet their business objectives. As a friend, Gerard is friendly, jovial, a family man and person of integrity. I am glad that he is back in the market, meeting and serving people, which has always been his passion.

D Lohanto wrote: "Gerard helped us with our first property purchase. He was really helpful explained all enquiries we had promptly from start to finish. We dealt with a property agent before speaking with Gerard and we could see BIG difference between the two. Although, it is understandable that seller agent should act on behalf of the seller, but Gerard showed otherwise. He was willing to help us and getting all of the answer we need. Thank you Gerard for your assistance and on the side note, he has good sense of humor!!"

He was proactive, prompt in his communication and very very persistent with his home opens and his efforts to market and sell the house. He took a lot of initiative in marketing the house and kept us updated on the outcomes through the process. Once the buyer has been secured, he is also very patient in walking both parties through the process and very professional in his approach. We would have no hesitation in recommending Gerard to anyone who wants results! Thanks Gerard. Vani and Dash

One of our special conditions was access to the property during settlement due to planned renovations. Gerard made himself available for all scheduled trades, and several times within a few hours to accomodate us with extra work that was required. Overall we found Gerard very easy to deal with and he went out of his way to make sure everything ran smoothly with settlement. Gerard even followed up with me recently to check on how we went with the renovations which we really appreciated. If we ever considered selling our home in the distant future we will be calling Gerard.’ L and H Maurel
Lorraine and Andrew wrote: “ We contacted Gerard because we saw the $10 million sale price he achieved for a development site in Applecross and thus we were confident that he would understand the potential value of our own property which had the same rezoning limits in Como. We met with several agents and decided Gerard was the right person to sell our home. Within 48 hours of listing our property with Gerard we had an offer that we were happy with. Gerard was always punctual for our appointments, he listened well to our needs and expectations and he was always contactable. He gave us honest feedback on the recent sales in the area and general market feedback which helped us decide on our selling price. We were impressed with Gerard’s style, practice and professionalism. We were certainly very happy that we chose Gerard to work for us, and would happily recommend him to anyone who needs a reliable and trustworthy agent to market their property”.
Fei wrote: Gerard is by far the best and the most competent real estate agent we have encountered. His professionalism, knowledge of the market, timeliness to responding to any of our queries were superb and second to none. We have dealt with many agents, but find that Gerard is the most approachable, genuine and humble yet competent agent. He made us feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. In fact, one of the important factors to why we have purchased this property is because of him. Mount Pleasant (Aug 2019)
Jimmy & Florence wrote: Gerard is aware of market situation, as our property was sold to our satisfaction. As we were able to settle before the end of the financial year, that saves us other fees and taxes. Gerard is able to negotiate well with the buyer and is a great help to finalise the sale without much fuss and bother. Would not hesitate to recommend him to my friends or family members.
