"We had the absolute please of having Simon Gowling represent our home in South Melbourne and be our auctioneer. From the first meeting Simon and his colleagues at Greg Hocking Holdsworth Real estate were energetic, engaging and had excellent property knowledge of the area and could answer our questions with confidence. The level of service Simon and Max gave us in our marketing campaign was excellent. They were contactable at all times, friendly and always offered sound advice. Communication was frequent and flowing. As your agent and front face to your property Simon is charismatic and a great ambassador to sell your home. His experience was proven when his proposed auction day plan was followed and led to a very successful result for our home. I have no hesitation in recommending Simon and his wonderful team and Greg Hocking Holdsworth in Albert Park."

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the outstanding work you did selling our family home.  Your advice was absolutely spot on in terms of auctioning the property (why would I even consider anything else!?!) and also the extensive marketing program.  It goes without saying, as the company with the highest number of sales at the top end of the market, Greg Hocking Holdsworth was the obvious - and only - choice.  It also became clear during the campaign that your connections with buyers in the market came to the fore.  The family and I could barely believe the result you achieved for us and will be forever grateful"

"When I needed someone I could trust, I didn’t consider anyone else ... I have known and watched Simon for many years and knew he was without doubt the person to contact to assist me when time and discretion were critical ... My property didn’t even hit the open market, it was sold within a week from within his own list of interested purchasers ... I could not have asked for a better result and a considerate approach from him and his team."

"Simon worked hard to ensure the best outcome when selling my property in Albert Park. He listened to my expectations regarding selling price and he genuinely worked hard to obtain it. He had a very strong understanding of the market and identified very clearly what potential buyers were looking for and what they were most likely prepared to pay on the day. He provided valuable feedback to me after every house inspection and was open and honest in his appraisals. An excellent service."
