Senior Sales Agent
With a career that commenced in 1990, you will not forget Craig Alexis' approach to buying, selling and negotiating. Craig genuinely cares for each and every person he meets and helps them with WHATEVER they need (he has been known to help some of our elderly clients get Christmas decorations down from their attic).
Craig is a firm believer that satisfied customers and strong referrals are the best form of business, this has been proven time and time again as he has facilitated over 1,500 successful property transactions across the Hills District.
Craig believes that honest and down-to-earth communication with his clients throughout the entire selling and buying process has given him the edge as his clients are never left wondering. He not only works for you, he works with you. The attention and professionalism Craig gives you once your home is listed for sale continues through to the settlement period and beyond. Craig is a highly skilled negotiator and has been known on many occasions to negotiate much higher prices for his clients that they had previously expected.
Craig lives locally with his family and having owner-built & invested in the area, has an even more personal understanding and appreciation of all aspects of the great Australian dream.
Let Craig put his knowledge, enthusiasm, attention to the finest detail and dedication to work for you to ensure that your real estate experience is a positive one that you too will want to share with family and friends. As a Justice of the Peace he is happy to witness documents as required.
" Hello Craig "
Here is our recommendation - with heartfelt thanks. It is difficult to know which agent to select from the many out there. We went through the process of interviewing several, but Craig's manner and knowledge of the real estate industry really shone through. Craig has been the ultimate professional. He is conscientious and a very easy, pleasant person to deal with. We had all the care and attention we could wish for. His consummate negotiating skills have given us a more than fabulous result in the sale of our home. We would have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone wanting an efficient process from start to finish with an extremely satisfying result.
" Astounding! Exceptional! Very, Very Happy with the result! "
My wife and I have known Craig for over 15 years, when we were all involved in Real Estate. It's been a few years since my wife and I left the industry, however when it came time for us to sell, there was no choice... we always knew that Craig's professionalism, experience and honesty was going to work in our favour. We used to ask our Vendors to "leave it up to us", we had no hesitation in "leaving it up to Craig". The result was spectacular.Granted the market (and our location) created a golden window of opportunity, however the marketing strategy that Craig used gained us over $200,000.00(!!!!) more than we expected. This is not a misprint, $200,000.00 was like having the winning lottery ticket. We have no doubt that Craig (and his team) delivered this ticket to us, and it only took 1 open house, and about 1 week to cash it in... We will be eternally grateful, will tell anyone who wants know how great the experience was, and shall happily offer a verbal reference to anyone who wishes to contact us. Thank you Craig, we will think of you often in our new home on the 10th hole...
" To whom it may concern, "
From the very beginning our dealings with Craig Alexis and Gilmour's agency were positive. We first met Craig 6 months prior to selling when we first advised Gilmour Property Agents of our intention to sell our family home. Gilmour's have been excellent handling the rental of our Kellyville investment property for many years, so we agreed to meet Craig when he was referred to us by our rental agent. Craig immediately impressed us with his genuine and professional manner. Craig and the team at Gilmour's were extremely well organised and kept us fully informed at all times. Our open home, which was held on a terribly wet Saturday, went smoothly thanks to Craig and the team. Later that afternoon Craig advised us of the offers made and a deadline was set for any further offers to be made by the following Monday afternoon. The price Craig achieved in the end was excellent and exceeded our expectations. Our home was under offer less than 7 days after its first posting on the internet. Craig's calm and assertive manner was reassuring and he did not hesitate to go straight to the source to clear up any misinformation coming from the buyers end. We felt safe knowing that Craig was looking out for us throughout the whole process. He kept the sale, from beginning to end, as stress-free as possible. You could not ask for more from an agent who is selling your much loved home. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Craig and Gilmour's agency to anyone who wants to sell and achieve a good result in the current market.
" Thanks, craig "
For the past 24 plus years my wife and I have been fortunate enough to have used the services of realtor Craig Alexis. We first met Craig in 1990 after we had been given the run around by several agents in the area, whom we had discovered would not listen to our requirements and showed us inappropriate homes, that were nothing like we had requested. We had become totally disenchanted with the entire process. While driving through the hills area one morning I noticed a for sale sign on a house that looked interesting so we called the number on the sign later that day and Craig took the call.We explained what we were looking for and that we had wasted several weeks with other agents showing us many houses, none of which were brick or on a quiet street as we had requested. After a lengthy conversation Craig said "Leave it with me for a day or so I will check around and call you back." As promised on the Friday evening he called and asked us to meet him at the office the next day as he had lined up a few viewings for us. To make a long story short the first 2 properties were good but not quite right for us and in the car on the way to the 3rd house Craig said I believe this next one is just what you are looking for. He was correct, we both knew within a few minutes that this property was exactly what we had asked for. We invariably purchased this home and were thrilled that we had finally found somebody who would actually listen to our requirements and find what we were looking for. So began our long association. Craig has proven to be of invaluable assistance to us as our realtor as we purchased and sold several properties over the following years. He is an extremely effective negotiator, is profoundly honest and reliable and displays extraordinary people skills. During the past 24 years Craig has saved us a lot of time, money and aggravation. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Craig's services to anybody who is looking to buy or sell property.
" A pleasure of dealing "
My family and I had the pleasure of dealing with Craig Alexis from Gilmour Property Agents during the buying and selling of our home in December 2013. I chose Craig to sell our home based on the time I spent househunting. I dealt with many agents over a period of 6 months and it was Craig's nature and professionalism that impressed me. I could see the excellent sales results he received for vendors, and I liked his approach to obtain maximum prices for them during such a hot market. He was extremely kind and helpful to both me and my children during my househunting and I was thrilled when he found and showed us our dream home which we were lucky enough to end up as the successful buyers of. When it came time to sell our home we changed our minds from a different agent to Craig, simply because we had been so impressed with him. In selling our home he was efficient and successful. He obtained a figure way more than we were hoping for. He kept us informed of all developments along the way, and sold our home so quickly and smoothly. His warm and genuine personality was heart-warming and reassuring during a potentially stressful time. When we completed the entire buying and selling transactions, he was as thrilled for us as we were. It is with great enthusiasm that I would recommend Craig Alexis from Gilmours to sell any home. If you choose him you will always recall the professional, smooth running and excellent way your house was sol.
" Craig Alexis did a fantastic job! "
It is with great pleasure I write this letter. When we decided to sell our home we knew we had some homework to do, so we called up 6 real estate agents in our area from Glenwood to Castle Hill and explained what our situation was and would they be interested in coming and having a chat with us on how they do their business and if anything, what we had to do to improve our chances of getting a maximum sale price for our home. And so the process began, but after talking to 5 agents we still weren't quite sure if we were satisfied with any. Our last agent to come and see us was Craig Alexis from Gilmour Real Estate Castle Hill. From the moment we met Craig we had that feeling he was someone we could trust with the sale of our home, he was honest with us from the start, easy to talk with and he listened with great interest with what we had to say and what we wanted with the sale. Asking questions and giving some great advice. When Craig left that day we told him we would let him know either way and thanked him for his time...the next day we decided that Craig was our man for the job. We spoke again and set aside dates to suit for our first open home, everything seemed to be going according to plan and the open home was a great success! Knowing Craig had a huge data base of clients and knowing what they required made us feel secure in that he would be able to sell our home. Eight contracts handed out on the day and a few good offers as well. Craig told us not to worry about another open home as in his opinion it wouldn't be need, and he was certainly right. After some phone calls and quite a bit of bidding from potential buyers he rang with the wonderful news on Monday evening of the price that was the highest bidder and it was a record for a single story home in Glenwood! It goes without saying Craig Alexis did a fantastic job for us and we would have no hesitation in recommending Craig as his professionalism was outstanding and his quality of service excelled! We thank Craig so very much for his sincerity and for doing an absolutely wonderful job in selling our family home & all the best for the future.
" Hi Craig, "
We would like to thank the team at Gilmour, in particular Craig Alexis, for their assistance in purchasing our new house in Glenhaven. Having house hunted in the Hills District for over a year we met with many real estate agents and their teams and rarely did we find any as professional, friendly, approachable and above all else, helpful as Craig and the team at Gilmour. We were immediately put at ease whenever we had queries through the process. If an answer couldn't be given on the spot, Craig would source an answer and come back to us quickly. Craig facilitated a quick and stress free purchase, exactly what we needed after searching for so long! I would have no hesitation in recommending Craig and the entire Gilmour team for your house purchase or sale. Particular thanks also to Simon Kowald and Grant McEnally whom we had many previous dealings with.
" We would like to thank you, craig "
Colin & I would like to thank you for all the work you did to achieve the selling of our house. We have lived here 48 & ½ years so this has been our only experience at selling a house. It has been very interesting. We will miss our neighbours & our garden but look forward to living at Gracewood in Kellyville. A new start for two people in their early 80’s. Thanks again, our best wishes to you & the staff.
" An Excellent Professional "
For anybody seeking a real estate salesperson of superior quality I can highly recommend Craig Alexis. Everything I needed to know, Craig always had the correct answer. He also had great contacts who were able to prepare my property to the best advantage. Accurate pricing also ensured that a maximum crowd came to the one open house that was all that was needed. In pouring rain and a depressed market, they came and the property was sold for more than one hundred thousand dollars above the listed, anticipated price. I could not have asked for more from Craig and the team he organised.
" Great Agent With A Great Result "
An amazing agent! Craig made selling our property a very pleasant experience. He has a wealth of knowledge in this industry and guided us in all the right directions. we put our trust in Craig and received a great result. We could not recommend him enough!
" Dear Craig "
Just a short note to say thank you for all your advice and support in the recent sale of our home. We could not be happier with the result you achieved, much more than we expected and the speed of the sale fulfilled your predictions almost to the letter. We would be more than happy to recommend both you and the first class team of professionals at Gilmours to any prospective seller. We look forward to dealing with you in the future.
" Can\'t thank you enough "
We can't thank you enough for all your hard work in the sale of our Baulkham Hills home in March and that of my mother's estate in January also. In both instances we were amazed at the speed of the sales and the excellent results achieved- 5 days for each. You made a very stressful period of our lives a lot easier as we knew we could rely on you to look after our interests and to achieve the best results. Choosing you as our agent was not negotiable as we knew from our three previous experiences of your professionalism (one previous sale for us and a purchase and later sale for our daughter) that you are honest and ethical and do your job well without being "pushy". Your communication was excellent always keeping us up to date with progress. We were never left "wondering". It has been a wonderful decision to relocate to the serenity of the mountains after 30 years in Baulkham Hills and we love our new life. All the best in the future. You are an asset to your industry.
" Dear Craig "
Thank you very much for all the help you gave me in preparing my house for sale. I would not have achieved it without your help & advice. The icing on the cake was the fantastic price that you achieved for me. You are MAGIC. Thank you, thank you, thank you. It will be a pleasure to recommend you to all my friends and family in the future. P.S Craig, I am still house hunting for somewhere to buy, so please keep in touch!
" exceeded our expectations "
Craig Alexis did an outstanding job of selling our home. We were impressed by his professional manner, his skill in negotiating the sale and his communications with us throughout the process. Our dealings with Craig consistently met and exceeded our expectations and we had confidence in his ability to market and sell our home from the outset. Craig achieved an excellent result for us in just one day of our first Open House. We would highly recommend Craig and the team at Gilmours to anyone considering selling their property.
" Dear Craig "
Wow, haven't we come full circle. After 21years at John St, we finally made the decision to move on for a tree/sea change. I remember only too well 21years ago buying our home from you. The faith and trust we had in you back then made it a simple decision to put our home back in your hands to sell. From the beginning we knew you would work with us to get the best result. Not too many people have such a long standing relationship with their buying agent I don't think. They say selling your home is up on the list of stressful life events, as you will have seen my stress levels were at an all time high during this time, however with you calmly steering us through the process this certainly made it so much easier. A very seamless & simple process. Thank you. We could not have imagined the incredible result you achieved, and are grateful this now allows us to follow some of our dreams. To the rest of your team at Gilmours, thank you for treating us and our home with courtesy and respect at all times when visiting. We wish you every success in the future and will happily recommend you to our friends and neighbours. Thank you again. We are only sorry you do not operate up the North Coast as we would readily buy through you again.
