Bradley Macdonald

When we were thinking of selling our sub-divided block before we were to build our dream home, we were approached by several agents. We were not quite happy with the sales plans offered. One of our neighbors who has given us wise tips on other matters, recommended Kathy and Gerry, who had successfully acted for his own family members achieving much more than they expected. He gave us their contact details and we arranged for them to visit us and talk things through. We were immediately heartened by their positive attitude.They were confident but straight forward (no nonsense). Kathy and Gerry seemed to have excellent vision, thinking outside the square but at the same time somehow in a reassuringly realistic way.They also made us feel  that we could trust them to fight for our interest and not just fob us off for a quick turn-over. The end result did indeed prove to make us happy that we had listened to advice and also followed our “gut”. Throughout the process of the preparation, actual sale and “rap up”, they offered us valuable support related to the actual sub-division as well as to the advertising and sale plan.They even continued to offer their experienced support whenever we should need it during our own sometimes stressful building journey. Gerry and Kathy kept us fully informed at every turn and we felt  that they could be relied upon to act both ethically and strongly in our interest – something important to  us.The final result did make us thankful to have taken our neighbor’s tip and found them.

Gerry and Kathy are 2 of the most nurturing and caring individuals we have come across. Genuinely put our best interests first and we are forever indebted for the lengths they went to ensure we landed the house of our dreams.

Samuel Thompson

We are interstate so really needed someone who would go the extra mile. Gerry and Kathy are a complete team. From pre-sale advice, provision of tradies, the actual sales experience and the communication and assistance we received. Realising that this is their job but really felt that the service was personal. At the end a great outcome for both us and the buyers.

Ruth Edwards

Gerry and Kathy, thank you so much. I thought selling a house would be daunting, but you have made it simple and easy. We got the asking price we wanted and you have kept in touch with me all the way. I can’t thank you enough, and will be recommending you to everyone who wants to sell a house. I was really scared about Real Estate agents, but if people trust you two beautiful people, they will be rest assured. What you tell them will be true, and it has helped me get a magnificent outcome.
Thanks Team Mac. Love your work!!!

Catherine Chamberlain

Both Kathy and Gerry have exceptional skills that I have never experienced before when buying or selling a property. These guys went out of their way to ensure everything went as smoothly and stress free as possible. They understood how important securing this particularly home was for us because we had elderly parents to consider and gave of themselves over and above what I ever expected just to”make this happen”for us. Kathy and Gerry endeared themselves to our family, Gerry is masterful while Kathy is nurturing, we found this to be a very reasurring combination which in fact is difficult to find in this day and age and will be recommending them whole heartedly to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. We will only be using them ourselves when purchasing or selling in the future, thats how happy we were with their service.

Tracey Cole/Diasinas

Great very supportive and updated regularly on progress. Always available to discuss issues.

Bill Rich

Gerry’s description of and commitment to the renovation project which he supervised jointly with the owners was very impressive. I could see that he had paid attention to detail, all in the interests of the owner, the house and the prospective buyer. Together with his wife, Kathy, they responded promptly and warmly to any of our requests and queries that we made of them.

John & Bronwyn Veale

Loved dealing with Kathy/Gerry. They made sure the process was easy, were honest and upfront and very helpful. Their approachable and personable nature made the experience of buying a first home a smooth and transparent one.

Thank you!

Mark Goreham

Gerry and Kathy handled the sale of our property, and we were very happy with their professionalism, and focus on detail. They kept us fully informed every step of the way, and they left nothing to chance. The sale went through very smoothly, and we can recommend their services to anyone who is contemplating selling their property.

Barry White

Kathy and Gerry were both fantastic, without their help I doubt the apartment would have been sold, certainly not as quickly as it did. They were tenacious in their dealings with the problems we encountered, making sure all the information was supplied to the relevant parties so approval was granted to meet the conditions of the contract with the purchaser. They made sure we were informed of the progress at all times, and constantly checked that everything was completed to a high standard. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell an apartment.

Linda Harrison

Kathy and Gerry were both great people to buy a house from. They were friendly, helpful and talked us through all the steps we needed to know. Kathy was always friendly when answering the phone and would always follow up questions quickly, making us feel she genuinely cared and was there to help. We would certainly recommend them to others and would come to them first if we ever decide to sell our first family home in Australia. Thanks, guys!

Victoria Maillard

Throughout the entire process of purchasing the above property, I was very pleased with the high level of professionalism from both Gerry and Kathy. As a first home buyer, the thought of purchasing a property was daunting at first but both real estate agents assisted me throughout each step of purchasing the house and helped make the process easy to understand. Following one step at a time made me feel confident about my decision to purchase the property. I would highly recommend the services of Gerry & Kathy McGuinness to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Benjamin Ellgar

I found both Gerry and Kathy to be an amazing and caring team. They went the full mile for me to make sure that I understood everything and kept me informed of the process of purchasing my new apartment. I will recommend them to all my family and friends and will use them when I need to downsize my current home. I feel like we will remain friends for life.

Adele Mullins

I think Gerry and Kathy did a wonderful job in selling our property, they kept us informed in every aspect of the sale. I certainly would recommend Harris Real Estate to prospective sellers/buyers. Their professionalism was outstanding.

Vicki Hine

Went beyond usual expectations to assist arrangement of repairs and restorations.

Damien Bezborodov

A pleasure to deal with these two agents. From start to finish they were professional, kept us in the loop and their advice was invaluable in helping to sell the property quickly.

Franca Smith

Wonderful service provided at every step of the process in buying my house. Gerry and Kathy did everything they could to guide and support me so that I understood what was happening at all times. All my phone calls and emails were responded to professionally and promptly and I always felt valued as a client and was not just a number. Gerry and Kathy were also warm, friendly and good humoured in all our interactions.

Sally Lavers

Kathy and Gerry were extremely helpful and on more than one occasion went over and beyond the standard service we had received from estate agents. Loved Kathy’s honesty and her commitment to making sure everything went as planned.

Mel Barrow

Both Gerry and Kathy were very clear and concise on their presentation. Always followed up on any quiries, were polite, well presented, went beyond normal expectations.

Rick Mansfield

Kathy and Gerry did a magnificent job in selling our Moana investment property in record time and at a price we never thought would be achieved. They gave us great advise on how to prepare the home for market and their professional approach and marketing strategy set them apart from other local agents. We would not hesitate to recommend Team McGuinness to anyone looking to get a stress free sale of their home, in fact we have already recommended them to family and friends. We felt that they were on our side and they kept us informed throughout the whole marketing and sales process.

Bruce and Vicki Mashford

Gerry & Kathy from Harris Real Estate have provided service above and beyond.  After poor results from 2 other agencies, Harris sold my home quickly and successfully and at the price I wanted! Their enthusiasm and communication with all aspects of the sale was fantastic.  I wouldn’t hesitate to engage their services again and have already recommended them to others.

Ian Tait and his daughter Marie

On behalf of myself and my husband, we would like to thank Gerry and Kathy McGuinness for their professionalism and optimism in selling our house at Moana. It was very important to us to have an agent that we could trust and feel comfortable to discuss both our expectation and wishes. We had several local agents appraise our home at a much lower price than we thought it was worth. Gerry and Kathy were very realistic in pricing our house and managed to get us the price we wanted, which was more than we thought we would get. The advice that we were given by Gerry and Kathy to make small affordable changes to our home definitely helped the sale. We were continually updated on the progress of the sale which made things a lot less stressful. We have recommended Gerry and Kathy to a couple of neighbours as we feel they have really got to know and enjoy the south which is definitely under rated.

Sharon and Kym Anderson

Gerry & Kathy we referred to me by a close friend who sells several properties per year with them. He explained the way the go about selling homes and how professional they are. It sounded perfect for my situation so I engaged their services. I was not let down at all as the house was sold within 4 weeks and settled within 2 weeks afterwards. This was the perfect outcome for me as time was of a constraint. They presented as well equipped to take on the task from first meeting them as they had already done a market analysis relevant to my area and therefore came up with a very fair sale price based on this, part of this figure was also based on their many years of sales experience over the years and what they expected they could deliver on. They sold the house at asking price with no deviation from this. Gerry & Kathy did a stellar job and I have already passed on their details to another person whom I know has properties to sell and i did this with no hesitation. It was a great experience overall and I am happy to have met this dynamic duo as they are nice people as well as professional.

Nathaniel Ostrenga

We have had a lot of interaction with real estate agents over the years and found Gerry and Kathy very easy to deal with resulting in us feeling extremely comfortable with this purchase. We would have no hesitation recommending their services to any potential vendor or purchaser.

Trevor Jenkins

Brilliant result in such a short time frame. Over and above our expectations. Impressed with both Gerry and Kathy who provided the highest level of service, professionalism and honesty.  We were kept informed at every step which made the whole process quite easy. Would highly recommend Team Mac to anyone looking to sell their property!

David & Bec Taddeo

Another firm were trying to sell our home(we were told by them that they had lost interest) so a call in relation to a block of land produced Gerry and Kathy who came presented themselves very professionally, worked hard and courteously and sold the house in three weeks. We have highly recommended them to other people. They have also sourced a builder for our new home and found us a unit to live in while the new house is being built. An absolute power house team, we cannot sing their praises loudly enough. We thank them very much.

Murray and Vicky Crittenden

Excellent outstanding service. The most efficient, professional, friendly agents we have ever dealt with.

Rosemarie Bartlett

We loved their work and everything was done professionally. Also, we loved their honesty and could trust them 100% which was important to us.

Sato Thornton ​

Kathy & Gerry – what can I say? They went above and beyond anything I’ve ever seen before in business. What amazing people. They are THE best Real Estate sellers in the market. Thank you so much for everything you have done for us.​

John Hatzi

I am satisfied with Team McGuinness. I’ve known this beautiful couple for four years. Kathy and Gerry are absolutely the best agents. They do research, plan, take care of everything professionally with love and care. They focus on all the details and achieve the best. They make both the vendor and the buyer happy. They sold four of my investment and living properties in Adelaide. I trust them and love them indeed. They are my life long friends!

Rosy Rong

We would definitely recommend Kathy and Gerry to anyone looking for a great team of real estate agents. They made our purchase and settlement process exceptionally smooth and they were just a delightful couple to deal with.

Juanita Beck

Throughout the process I was kept very well informed of any and all developments.  At all times the agents were professionally competent and made the process easily accessible for a lay person.  They were also extremely warm and friendly so that any engagements with them were a pleasure.  I totally relied on and trusted their judgement. I would say the service I received was well above and beyond what anyone would expect.

Anne Ryan

We would highly recommend Gerry and Kathy McGuiness of Harris Real Estate.  They are true professionals.  They approached the sale of our houses with integrity, honesty and professionalism.  Communication was excellent at all times which I highly valued during the sale campaign. They are very knowledgeable of the area, the process and market conditions.  It was great working with them and I have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Nardia Lewis

Gerry and Kathy are a fantastic team, they know what a house is worth and they will tell you what is required to be done to it, if you want to make more money on the home. LISTEN to them, they know what they are doing. I put my homes in their hands and came out in front both times!

Paul Cole

Team Mac went above and beyond in every way when it came to selling our home. From the initial advise in terms of what was required to attract buyers, to the communication throughout the whole process and then the finer details in terms of the legal requirements of compliance, Gerry and Kathy were exceptional and even kept me updated from their holiday resort in Port Douglas when they should have been drinking cocktails and sunning themselves! I can highly recommend Gerry and Kathy for a professional, open relationship when it comes to selling your home. They make a potentially stressful experience much easier with their attention to detail and expertise. We moved interstate prior to the sale and left our home in their very capable hands. I was a little nervous about this process as I am a control freak, however, I had nothing to worry about, everything was taken care of thoroughly and I was kept updated in every aspect of the process. Thank you team Mac

Hayley Teale

Harris Real Estate were fantastic to deal with, and the agents representing us were honest, hard working, had excellent communication with us as vendors, and to top it off were friendly and extremely pleasant to deal with.

Deane Prior

The service we received from Gerry and Kathy McGuinness from start to finish was professional, yet personal and we felt extremely confident and comfortable throughout the whole process. We received a phone call from Kathy the same day we made an enquiry and she was able to provide detailed information about the recent sales they had been involved with in the area and share her market knowledge of the area. We were also extremely impressed by the preparation Gerry and Kathy had done prior to meeting with us at our home and felt from that early stage in the process that the recommended sale price was well considered and realistic and that our home would be presented in the best light possible. The photos of our property were amazing and well used in the sale brochures and internet ad and the description of the property was perfect. Gerry and Kathy gave us confidence in the property we were presenting for sale, provided constant and timely feedback throughout and we knew that when it came to the final negotiations, Gerry was getting the best result. Selling a much loved first home is hard, but Gerry and Kathy made the process so easy and seamless that we really didn’t have long to reflect too much on it or doubt the result! Gerry and Kathy make a formidable, highly experienced team with exactly the right approach and balance in respect of a deep understanding of the numbers and the market, strong negotiation skills and natural ability to personalise the process and not overlook the significance of it for the people involved in selling and buying. They are highly professional, yet so personable and their care and attention and service both throughout the sale process and afterwards is amazing and, we imagine, quite unique. We walked away very happy, with a great result. We ourselves aren’t planning to move anywhere for quite some time having just built and moved into our “forever” house, but we would have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending Gerry and Kathy to anyone looking to sell.

Amelia Senneck

Awesome! I felt like a person…not just a number… the process was simplified with Kathy and Gerry going the extra mile in every aspect of the purchase.
Awesome people, buying a house simplified!

Madelein Rautenbach

A professional dynamic duo where they have the old style customer service with a massive smile. Communication was key and never second guessed anything. They stuck to their word and the whole process was very stress free due to their caring and professional nature. Thank you so much and we will be referring everyone and anyone to you guys
