Thank you so much for being so attentive and wonderful.

Had a fantastic experience with Peter leading the sale of my property. From the outset, Peter implemented a clear strategy to maximise exposure and bring the best potential buyers out first. He had the courage to stand behind his approach, and definitely showed his experience on auction day. Peter went the extra step during the negotiation process ensuring a great result. Couldn’t recommend Peter high enough

Hi Sara, You’re a legend! Thanks so much!!!!

We found Simon to be a professional and dedicated real estate agent. His prompt and detailed feedback after each opening was informative and kept us ‘in the picture.’ Together with his ongoing assessments of potential buyers we were able to approach our auction day with some degree of confidence! Simon’s auctioning skills and performance on the day delivered us a great result! Thank you Simon for all your efforts and also for my beautiful ‘auction day’ flowers

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.

Warwick was such a fantastic agent to work with when we recently sold our home. In every aspect of the process he went over and above what was required. From the initial meetings, planning the campaign and open for inspections he worked so hard to get a fantastic end result for us. On auction day he predicted exactly what would happen and negotiated a price well above our reserve. Highly recommended.

From the outset Simon provided fantastic communication and transparency with his knowledge and strategy for the sale of our property. He was always on hand to answer questions and provide advice to obtain the best result possible.  His follow ups and monitoring of potential buyers was excellent and the result fell the way he predicted in terms of likely purchaser and price achieved. An excellent experience all round.

Upon making the decision to sell my home, I carefully considered all of the agents in the area. After attending several open for inspections and seeing firsthand some of the local agents in action, Warwick Gardiner from Greg Hocking Holdsworth was a clear standout. From the moment I first met Warwick, he came across not only as a friendly, enthusiastic and approachable person but also a very able, hard-working and genuinely passionate selling agent. He was the consummate professional, and his honesty and integrity was evident from the outset which was refreshing to see. I was also impressed by Warwick’s extensive experience and knowledge of property prices and the area in general. After signing with Greg Hocking Holdsworth, and observing Warwick’s expert selling techniques and negotiating skills, I knew I had made the right decision and had the best agent selling my home. I was regularly kept informed of all activity on my property and Warwick’s advertising campaign and strategy coupled with Greg Hocking Holdsworth’s large client database generated significant interest. I believe I could not have chosen a better agent to sell my home and I am eternally grateful to Warwick for his tireless efforts in achieving an excellent result far beyond my expectations. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Warwick as a selling agent and will definitely engage Warwick again myself the next time I am selling a home in Melbourne

Dear Sara,

Thank you so much for looking after our interest. It’s the best decision we made to switch over!

Appreciate your help especially in those cold evening and morning inspection!

Thank you for your great work. Very much appreciated.

Campbell Kilsby stood out immediately from the many agents we interviewed to sell our St Kilda Apartment. With an honest and friendly style Campbell made the sales process a pleasure from start to finish. Campbell was genuinely interested in getting us a good sale price but also ensuring that potential buyers were well informed about the property. We knew we were in good hands leading up to Auction day and were thrilled with the outcome – a record price for the building. Based on our experience, we would have no hesitation in recommending Campbell to anyone looking to sell their property.

Campbell Kilsby has impressed us on service, communication, flexibility and diligence. After meeting numerous agents over recent years we were lucky enough to buy a property from Campbell. His personal style and approach was noticeable and he stood out amongst his peers for being trustworthy and pragmatic so we then requested that he help us sell our existing property. We had an amazing result on the sale and attribute much of this to the campaign that Campbell put together which included fantastic styling by Felicity Millen (Visual Style) and our fabulous auctioneer Leonard Persichetti who made all the difference on the day. I have already recommended Campbell to several friends and colleagues.

You are so nice. Your industry needs more people like you

Sara, thanks so much for all your help. You have really made this experience so much easier for me

Campbell, Leonard and Lucy were honest from the moment I met them! They believed in my home and were completely transparent during the whole of the campaign! I would highly recommend Campbell, Leonard and Lucy from Greg Hocking Elsternwick office they are an incredible team! They got an amazing result for my home!

Campbell was great. High level of energy, ran a great campaign and got me the results I wanted! Thanks for all your hard work. Highly recommended

Peter from your office was great. I will definitely contact him if/when we decide to sell. Cheers guys, oh and thank you for our welcome pack – that was a very nice touch!

Campbell and Leonard were great to work with. Always kept us up to date re: campaign, inspection numbers, etc. Gave great advice during campaign. Always honest and sincere. They made it happen on Auction day to get the price we wanted. What else can you ask for!

We can highly recommend Leigh as the agent to trust the sale of your home with. He has a passion for what he does and a great knowledge of the Inner West. From our initially meeting we felt comfortable we had made the right choice. Leigh always kept up informed and up to date with what was happening with our campaign. We sold before Auction and the result that was above our expectations. Thanks Leigh.

Mark de Brabander and his team did a fantastic job on the sale of the family home, the auction went like clock work, all went as detailed and explained at the pre-auction meeting with Mark. Throughout the sale Mark kept us well briefed and informed with all relevant information and updates during and leading up to the auction, a very professional approach to what was an emotional time for myself and family. Thank you to both yourself and your team who conducted a very professional and successful auction with the sale price above our expectations.

Your commitment to achieving our desired result was second to none. You kept us well informed and up to date with all procedures, inspections and potential buyers. Your professional manner and lovely persona made you an absolute pleasure to deal with. Greg Hocking Elly Partners are lucky to have you, you’re an absolute asset to the company!

From the moment we met Dean he made us feel as ease. He was always available, helpful and made us feel like his only client (even though we knew we weren’t). Dean (and the team at Greg Hocking Elly Partners) are the only agents we will use for any real estate dealing we have. Highly recommended!

Hi Annetta,

Thank you for arranging everything and your assistance in a new tenant at my property.



The agent was ” very” informed and knowledgeable about the real estate industry/economy with a realistic overview/expectation. The agency/staff was also very approachable.

At every stage of the emotional roller coaster ride in selling a house, Mark was there and of great support. If you are looking to buy or considering selling your home, we cannot recommend Mark highly enough.

Warwick was approachable, honest, experienced and organised. We got a great sale result and the process was smooth and not stressful. It was an 11/10 experience. Thank you!

Brilliant service and great result.

Pleasant, helpful, friendly, personable & excellent service

Great advice pre-sale, respectful communications during the selling process, and efficient finalisation of the sale made me a very happy customer.

Our experience was nothing but positive. Clearly a very skilled and experienced negotiator, we have no doubt it was David’s expertise that ensures we maximised our sale price.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Alexander Palmer, the Greg Hocking senior property manager for all her work with us and her excellent efforts looking after us and our Cheltenham property.

It was not only her professional approach to the work but her intuitive feeling about the best prospective tenants as well as the focus and commitment. We also appreciated the regular follow up with the property inspections.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Alex in any future endeavours given our positive experience.

It is with great pleasure that I’m able to recommend Alexandra Palmer to manage your property investments.

The freedom as a property investor is fantastic, however finding the right tenant and then managing them, for the duration of their lease, can at times be challenging.

As a realestate property investor, for the past thirteen years, I’ve now had the pleasure of dealing with Alexandra, twice in a four year period, she is enthusiastic, willing to please, always returns your phone calls, and emails, she’s highly efficient, but her real strengths are her people skills, her ability to communicate with her clients at the open for inspection, ensures she selects the most suitable tenant for your property, and sells your property to them; a true professional, and a lovely person.

We take our hats off to Greg Hocking Lawson Partners, from initial meeting to the sale of our property at the first open for inspection. A short but fantastic journey.

It is with absolute pleasure I recommend Alexandra Palmer to manage your property investments.

The ability to have an investment property portfolio is something I am very passionate about. To gain maximum return on these investments is paramount and to ensure we have the right tenants that care about the house as much as I do, which is no mean feat and to be honest at times some tenants can be character building.

As someone who has worked closely with Alexander for the past 6 years, I can honestly and unequivocally say she has been an absolute pleasure to work with and I have the utmost respect and trust in her ability to deliver good tenants at above market rates.

Alexander is someone when ask always is candid and gives great advice, while being available and reliable.

Not many of her peers in the industry can hand on heart say they do the above and this sets her apart and without doubt as one of the best going around.

Very reputable and knowledgeable, their expertise and professionalism was excellent throughout the process.

Outstanding at his job. Goes the extra mile and then some.

I wanted to take a minute and provide some feedback on Kellie Grant.

We both know the service industry is a demanding one and people are quick to tell you when service falls below expectations.

In this instance, I am very pleased to provide some positive feedback.

Since taking over as Property Manager we have been so impressed with the standard of service at which Kellie consistently delivers.

Kellie is proactive in her manner and her “follow through” on issues is a refreshing change.

Our enquires are dealt with the urgency required and her friendly “can do” attitude is evident during all communications.

Kellie is a pleasure to work with and I simply wanted to share this positive experience with you.

Peter was amazing throughout the entire process. He communicated proactively and educated me along the way at just the right times.

His knowledge is incredible, and his intuition is spot. He didn’t pull any punches when needed, handling tough conversations along the way with class. And he was right.

By auction day he had deservedly earned our complete trust and repaid it with a great result. And he’s a genuinely decent bloke too.

Thank you so much Peter.

Hi Sara, Thankyou for such a comprehensive report regarding our rental property.

Thanks again Sara for your professionalism whilst managing our property

To me choosing the right agent to sell our home was vital. We made a great decision in choosing Peter Zervas as he proved to be knowledgeable, resourceful and available right through the process. He assisted us with advice on presenting our home to maximise appeal plus coordinated trades and specialists to do the work thereby taking pressure off us. Peter scheduled a well-attended auction delivering a great result. I absolutely commend Peter Zervas to you for your real estate needs.
