Excellent Service

Dealing with Matt was a pleasure. Matt was extremely friendly and approachable, not only during the process of purchasing the property, but also post settlement. He explained the purchase process and recommended conveyancers etc as we were from interstate. I would highly recommend Matt and Hilliard Realty.

Simply the best

Matt went way above and beyond what is expected of a real estate agent. He took personal care and made sure our home was always impeccably presented. His attention to detail and the professionalism he brought to the open homes is a cut above the rest. He communicated in detail and was honest about the feedback he had received. Matt would be the one selling our homes from now on!

– Vinaya, Seller​

From our first introduction with Matt & Darren at an open home we knew we wanted them to sell our property.

They were honest and enthusiastic from beginning to end. Punctual to our open homes and supportive throughout the whole process. We would not hesitate to recommend Hilliard Realty to anyone.

I bought a property through Darren - as a buyer, it was a genuine pleasure to work with him.

He was efficient & timely in dealing with issues, had an excellent understanding of property matters, provided good advice & guidance, & was a great help for both buyer & seller in getting the deal done. A high-quality agent whom I'm delighted to recommend.

Darren was recommended to us.

We found him to be professional, respectful & thorough. He was amiable & friendly, listening to us and taking all of our requirements into account. Nothing was too much trouble & he went out of his way to patiently deal with every step of the process with skill and knowledge. We would highly recommend Darren to others who are seeking a real estate agent to sell their property.
