Jason Carr - Carr Consulting Ltd Vendor

I have worked with Simon for almost 4 years and have found Simon to be in the top percentage of managers in Australasia. Simon has been requested by some of the leading real estate companies of the world to work with them and this alone is testament to his management ability. His ability to manage and grow salespeople is second to none. Simon understands that real estate sales people need to be nurtured and tasked on a daily basis and the key to great management is listening and being proactive rather than reactive. If your business needs to grow BE BRAVE and bring on one of the best to help guide your team to excellence.

G R Brookfield Vendor

Dear Simon, you have opened a whole new view on the real estate industry. Until experiencing your professional approach my experience with residential dwelling based agents has been all bad. I had grown to categorise the industry personnel as being less than honest and uncaring. You have by far changed my attitude for the better. Well done and thank you once again.

KJ and Ros Vendor

Choosing Harvey’s was an easy choice for us after meeting with Simon and his colleague. They were honest, friendly and knowledgeable. The advice and direction they gave us was invaluable as we were nervous and unsure about going to auction. The whole process was relaxing and stress free. At all times we knew what was going on and what the market thought of our property. The skills, knowledge and relationships our agents have reflected in the price we achieved at auction.
