To whom it may concern,
we have known Bob McGillivray for over 30 years as he was the Davey Real Estate sales rep who we dealt with when we brought our first investment property in Girrawheen.
During this time we have had numerous dealing with Bob and other staff at a number of Davey Real Estate offices. We have always found all the staff we have dealt with over the past 30 years to always be friendly and helpful.
Bob always has an excellent customer service approach and we have built a relationship with Bob over the years to the point that we now regard Bob as a family friend.
In all our conversations and/or real estate dealings with Bob we have no hesitation in giving Bob a well above average (excellent) rating in the following areas:
Also, we have achieved a great result in all transactions over the years when Bob is included.
Always found Bob McGillivray very good at selling our homes and selling them at a good price. Most grateful to Bob for all his efforts over the years and would not hesitate to recommend him. He is an excellent trustworthy, honest and reputable Sales Consultant.
Just wanted to write a small review of Bob's assistance during the purchase of our property.
Our initial contact with Bob was on a house opening advertised on REIWA website, he was on time since our first visit and he provided us with a brief description of the property as well as the options available through Davey. Bob always maintained an open attitude and was never pushy.
In our second visit we made the decision to place an offer on the property and from that moment he took us step by step the whole process. We were a bit sceptical at the beginning because we never did any purchase with a real estate agent before but he inspired us with confidence and answered our questions in a timely manner.
We have nothing negative to say about him because he made our process very smooth and he went the extra mile when dealing with our lender and the sellers to resolve a small delay before getting the finance.
We are very pleased and satisfied with his assistance not only because thanks to him we achieved our dream to own a house but also the house that we wanted to make our home.
We look forward to hearing from him again and wish him success on his career.
Thank you very much to Bob and Davey Real Estate.
Bob McGillivray is an absolute legend! He has helped us to obtain our first house making the process very smooth and always with a professional attitude going the extra mile at every single stage. We are very satisfied with the results and very happy to recommend their services.
Thanks for helping us Bob!
If all real estate agents were as pleasant and honest as yourself the world would be a better place. We are more than happy with your results obtained for us!
Desiree and I would like to take a moment of your time to acknowledge the excellent level of service that we have received from Bob McGillivray and Tracey Harrison. Both Bob and Tracey have been working together in harmony to to effectively rent and then sell our Marangaroo property while we have been traveling the country side. They have had our best interests at heart at all times and have obtained an excellent outcome for us given the current state of the Perth property market.
We sincerely appreciate the efforts from both Bob and Tracey in which we have complete trust and would not hesitate to recommend them both.
“Thank you for introducing us to Bob McGillivray. I couldn’t ask for a better real estate agent to sell our property. His in-depth knowledge of the industry, high level of expertise, along with his strong work ethics make him an excellent representative.”
"Bob is an expert in this area and let us name our price, but agreed it wasn't too dear or too cheap. Bob is a friendly person, one feels one can talk to him like a friend."
“Our confidence in you was fully justified when you sold our home in Gould Place in 1998. We had no hesitation in coming back to you in 2009, and wow, what a result. Thank you so much.”
“Dear Bob, thank you for all the help and advice you gave us and for everything you did in helping us buy our first home.”
“Well done Bob on an excellent result for both Michael and myself. Our faith in you was fully justified, and we can now move on with our lives.”
“We acknowledge the fantastic result you achieved for us in the sale of our home. We were referred to you by my parents. We are so glad we contacted you.”
Helpful and friendly
Could not have had a better result with the property
Our agent kept us up to date on a regular basis
The whole experience that guided us through the process and even recommending a settlement agent was first class
Extremely happy with the advertising and signage, which resulted in an offer on the day of the first open house and the deal being signed in the same week.. A very professional experience from our agent, Bob McGillivray,
I would like to say that Bob McGillivray who was my agent in the matter of selling the house in Padbury was a pleasure to work with. I have never met Bob personally.
It was a complicated procedure due to the fact that it was a deceased estate. We had to deal with the bank, the buyers, a settlement agent, and two lots of lawyers. Bob even arranged for a man to clean out a shed that had been neglected, and as I live in another state I was most grateful for this service.
I was very satisfied, and even a little surprised, with the price that the house achieved, and I think Bob worked hard to achieve this.
It was a stressful and emotional time for me and at all times Bob answered my questions and concerns with promptness, courtesy and patience. All phone calls and emails were speedily and courteously answered.
So thank you Bob for a job well done.
“Bob has been an absolute gem during our sales process. I was very specific with what we needed and the outcome we needed. We were in a tight situation and explaining the full story to Bob ensured he understood the urgency of the sale. After our initial meeting we started the ball rolling with 4 weeks of home opens with the auction being held on the fifth week. Our auction started slow but the auctioneer Bob employed was brilliant and really worked hard to get us to where we needed to be, we are very grateful.
It was extremely comforting knowing we had Bob in our corner every step of the way. He did not fail to provide updates every step of the way, he even stopped into the property every now and then to check up on it knowing it was vacant.
Bob also never hesitated to provide honest feedback, without that honest feedback we would have been stuck in fantasy land.
Over all, our selling process was quick and painless, the process started mid-November with the auction in early December and settlement being completed early January.
Our family will forever be in debt to Bob for all his hard work in getting our house sold and settled in record timing.”
Elaine here, we received your report the other day and want to thank you very much for your comprehensive inspection and kind feedback. We feel that your price point was realistic in todays’ market and very much value your honest appraisal. It was a delight to meet you and we appreciate the time you took to gain an understanding of every aspect of our home. We now have a clearer understanding of the equity that’s in the property at this moment in time and this will help us in our future plans. It was so refreshing to meet someone who is so professional and experienced and whom I would have no hesitation in contacting when the time comes to downsize; in addition, I will happily recommend you to friends.
Thanks again Bob, you are a delight!
Best regards, Elaine
