"Douglas’ knowledge, integrity and honesty was of great value..."


“I found Douglas to be both professional and thorough, 

“We recently sold a commercial property in Camberwell"

The step by step process they went through gave me confidence that the right decisions were being made and that we’d picked the right agent.” 

Peter Gamble, Service Station owner, Corowa NSW

 … and achieved a result of more than a third above the reserve price … help in choosing the best agent for the auction resulted in a sale far beyond our expectations. We were relieved of much of the tension we would otherwise have been subjected to.”

Dr Kenneth Walton Dentist

“Douglas McKinnon was contracted to provide advice to our Company. 

“Douglas McKinnon acted as a Vendor Agent on two occasions.

His brief related to some eleven properties ranging from suburban concrete reservoirs to rural holdings and may be generally summarised as follows:

To verify and document property particulars relating to titles and existing lease and licence conditions, options, expiry dates etc.

To liaise with staff across the Company (predominantly engineers) to determine whether the properties were required for existing or future use and consequently identify the extent of any surplus land.

Consult with other professions and services including surveyors, solicitors, real estate agents and telecommunications providers to determine the highest and best use of identified surplus land. These consultations also included discussions on the best way to commercially optimise the end value of surplus properties whilst continuing to protect our permanent operational infrastructure.

To report on the properties, outlining options available and recommending the most appropriate disposal strategies.”

Peter Sharp, Manager, Property & Supply, Yarra Valley Water

The success of this first sale led me to ask for assistance in sorting out lease issues in an industrial property and its eventual sale …

His wide experience in the real estate industry has given him the contacts and knowledge to confidently give advice leading to optimal sale conditions and successful sale outcome… and in difficult circumstances. Doug acted with great professionalism. He kept us fully informed through the process, giving detailed information and advice enabling us to make fully informed decisions … When the situation became complex and difficulties arose, Doug persevered in a calm manner and developed a number of strategies which resolved the problems.”

Mrs Barbara Gamble
