6 Good reasons to ask me to work for you:

  • I am a Senior Valuer, with many years experience.

  • I am the valuer who will check and counter-sign your property valuation report .

  • I was New South Wales Government Registered Valuer 5042, but on 1st March 2016, the state government discontinued the registration system, and the valuation industry is now "deregulated" in NSW.

  • I am Land Valuers Federation Registered Valuer 40650.

  • I am "price competitive", and will negotiate a fee to suit your budget!

  • I'm a good humoured guy who will make business a pleasure! "Service, with a smile"!

I value all of Sydney (from $198 inc gst), including:


CBD, Lower North Shore, Northern Beaches, Inner West, Eastern Suburbs, Parramatta, Upper North Shore, The Hills, Liverpool, Canterbury-Bankstown, St.George, Sutherland Shire, South Western Sydney, and Western Sydney.


Plus: Hawkesbury, Blue Mountains, Campbelltown, and rural areas on request.


Fast turnaround!


Your residential property valuation report will be available 2 working days after I have inspected the property,

but even quicker if we agree on a "desk-top" report, (see below).



My Guarantee to You!


"I will listen. I will consider. I will discuss. My personal and careful attention will leave you well pleased".

And do you know? When one of my Italian clients read my guarantee, he said to his wife:

"I must call David, he's like a priest"!    Great! I love it!


When you call me, we will discuss which method will suit your needs.


For example, a capital gains tax valuation ($198 inc gst),  or super fund valuation ($198 inc gst) on a standard residential property, which you can describe to me both internally and externally, might be done as a "desk-top" report. The databases to which I have access are so detailed, for my fee of $198 inc gst, that often it is possible to learn more about a property by sitting in front of my computer, than it is by viewing the property from the street. This is most relevant when I am considering the sales evidence that is to be included in your property valuation report.


Or perhaps we will decide that a "kerb-side" property valuation report is suitable. This can be the best way to do things when access to the property is difficult or impossible, perhaps because of an un-cooperative tenant, or maybe an estranged spouse on the warpath! Believe it, I've been in the business long enough to have seen the ups and downs of life! I remember the time that I was in the back yard with the wife, (taking notes about the landscaping and the pool), when the unsuspecting husband came in through the front door! Wow! Lucky the side gate wasn't locked!


Often, a "certificate" internal and external inspection will be the method agreed upon. I come to your house, and prefer to start inside. I go from room to room, making observations about condition and standard of finishes and repair. I then go outside, to continue with observations and to take measurements. If the property is a unit, measurements are taken internally.


Some times, the "full report" is the preferred option. This is certainly the case when my property valuation report is to be presented to a court of law, or if there is the prospect of a dispute or litigation. Whilst the site inspection process is unchanged, the multiple page format of the report provides the reader with a more detailed description of the subject property and the sales evidence, as well as explanatory comments as appropriate.

Back in the 1980's, I worked for some of the large real estate companies, including Knight Frank, and Colliers. But my personality and temperament is best suited to being my own boss, so before long I started my own property valuation business. It's been a great pleasure to assist thousands of clients over the years, and today I am as enthusiastic about what I do as the day I launched my business.


Of course, the industry has changed substantially since that time, with technology and database access being aspects of the work that have brought in new processes and practices.


What has not changed about what I do, is the personal and individual service that I provide to my clients, which is why many of them have used my service multiple times over the years!​
