Some recent feedback from satisified customers who have achieved a great result with the Melbourne Sothebys Realty team. 

To whom it may Concern

It is my pleasure to recommend the services of Sotheby’s International Realty and in particular Grant Giordano. My family enjoyed an excellent experience in their care.

Attention to small details is above any level you may have felt satisfactory in the past. Vendors and hopeful purchasers greatest frustration often is the lack of communication from their agent and lo be left hanging in mid air. All your needs are met personably and promptly. My experience with Grant and the Sotheby’s directors, who made themselves involved, was attentive and obliging.

Our prospective purchasers were handled with care and gave confidence to us all.

You shall not be let down nor disappointed in their care.

As a Real Estate Agent with 45 years industry experience who’s "seen it all", I know several very professional, capable and knowledgeable Agents who I would entrust with the sale of my apartment in Avoca Street, South Yarra...but I could only choose one.I am pleased to say my choice of David Colbran and Grant Giordano of Melbourne Sotheby’s International Realty proved to be exactly the right one.The price achieved was by far a building record, the level of service, care and skill in achieving this, second to none, and I was kept informed every step of the way. Professionalism personified!

Therefore I’m pleased to say a big thank you to David and Grant & to recommend their services and those of David's Firm to any potential vendor in South Yarra and surrounding suburbs.

To whom it might concern,

I would like to thank Robert Marden for handling the sale of my house at 9 Marlborough Street, Caulfield North. He handled the whole process of the sale from our first meeting through the open house stage and finally the sale in a very professional manor. He made valid suggestions on what he felt that I should do to help with the sale,e.g. clean windows open blinds etc. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others, and I would certainly use his services again.

Thanks again Robert for a great outcome.

Hi Greg,

Once again most sincere thanks for your very professional conduct and work, even during the quiet time around Christmas and New Year, that led to the successful sale of our Penthouse in Toorak. I appreciate your diligence and ethical approach which is often missing in the real estate profession. I was impressed with your follow through during the negotiation stage of the campaign, that eventually yielded the right outcome for both, the seller and the buyer.

I’ll have no hesitation in referring our friends to you or contacting you again, should we need professional real estate service in future.  In my view, Sotheby’s are head and shoulders above the others in the real estate market.

Wishing you a very successful year.

Best regards,

Paul Semenov


Our recent experience with Sotheby’s Realty produced a result exceeding all expectations.

Given the combination of a family home of 64 years and a deceased estate, the realistic approach to the sale taken by the Sotheby’s team provided great comfort, an honest encounter and integrity of purpose at each stage of the process. 

We could not be more praising of our dealings with David Colbran and Greg Herman, along with the Sotheby’s Realty team.

Sincere thanks for your professionalism and appreciation of circumstance.

To whom it may concern,

Philip sold our house for what I believe is approximately 10% above market value. He was unfailingly courteous and good natured. He communicated well throughout the sales process and reported promptly after every inspection. He was scrupulous locking up after inspections. Finally through sheer bloody minded persistence, he achieved a very favourable price. I would recommend Philip without hesitation to any vendor of a luxury Toorak property.

Yours faithfully,

Thank you

Dear Philip,

I want to commend for your efficiency, professionalism and your general caring attitude during the whole process. Your advice was impeccable and your service was 100%.

Thank you for everything you have done.

Best wishes

Dear Sir,

We would like to place on record our very sincere thanks to Greg Herman for the very satisfying manner in which Sotheby’s Realty and Greg sold our property. We also wish to acknowledge the role that Bree van Deventer played, our thanks also go to her.

We will certainly recommend Greg to other friends and family who wish to sell their property as we are confident that he will guide them with sensitivity throughout the marketing period.

Certainly should we ourselves wish to sell another property, we will make Sotheby’s and Greg our first port of call.

Yours sincerely,

Pat and Bob Pillay
