Gerry McPhee from Hand McPhee property Consultants was the vendors agent when we found our dream home. We were thrilled when Gerry helped us secure the property. He went beyond our expectations in terms of communication and availability helping us accomplish our goal.
What we appreciated most dealing with Gerry was his ability to reassure us of the predictable politics of a house purchase, deliver the expected results and then some. Honestly speaking, without Gerry's help we may have given up on the whole house purchase process.
Contemplating the sale of my family home which my parents had built and lived in for over 5 decades was daunting. However, I consulted Gerry McPhee, who immediately took charge. Interviewing, selecting and constantly reviewing the agent for the sale, Gerry kept me well informed at every step. The stress that I had encountered buying and selling previously was removed. His knowledge, experience, hands on approach and expertise steered me through to an amazing result on auction day, with 20% above the reserve.
I can certainly recommend Gerry McPhee to anyone contemplating either sale or purchase of real estate as he is a true professional of the old school. I look forward to engaging Gerry again as my buyers agent when I purchase another property and also as my sellers agent when I sell my property.
Thanking you once again for the wonderful guidance and assistance, not to mention the support. A class act.
Having both consulted Gerry in the purchase of our residences, we decided to tap into his wealth of experience when we subsequently sold our childhood home. What a good decision that was! Gerry was there for us with everything from the choice of an agent, the conduct of the entire campaign to settlement to the closure of a house which had been ours for nearly five decades. We particularly appreciated his cool leandvel head when it came to tactics, and it all culminated in a very successful auction.

We were put in touch with Gerry McPhee by Peter Hand who had previously managed the rental of Jo’s mother’s home in Neutral Bay after she moved from Sydney to Melbourne to be nearer to us. From the start to the finish of the recent sale of that property, Gerry handled everything, including some challenging issues for us, in an exceptional fashion. Our decision to sell after so many years of owning our much loved house was not an easy one for us to make, but Gerry’s advice and helpfulness throughout the process of its sale made for a very stress-free affair. We are delighted with the outcome. John and I feel fortunate to have been pointed in Gerry’s direction.

We have known Gerry McPhee for a number of years and this May engaged him as a Sellers Advocate for our townhouse in Lane Cove. We are so pleased we did as he took all the stress away from us. He kept us fully informed and up to date with every step of the process and his professionalism, knowledge and experience meant the sale proceeded in a timely manner. The result was a successful outcome in July and a very satisfied customer - thanks Gerry!

I am very happy to recommend Gerry. I used him as a "buyer's advocate". He steered me away from a couple of purchases that would have been foolish. He was a cool and reasoned voice during negotiations and I appreciated being able to tap into his years of experience and his sensible, no nonsense approach.
I will definitely consult him for my next move - both selling and buying.
When my mother retired to Sydney from the country in 1979, she turned to Gerry McPhee to buy her an apartment in Mosman. When it came time for me to retire to the country from Sydney, I naturally turned to Gerry McPhee to assist me in selling the same Mosman apartment. It worked out perfectly, Gerry had in the meantime formed a Consultancy to assist vendors navigate through the “Wild West” of Real Estate sales. Gerry was my point man throughout the process, advising and gently cajoling as to the reality of the property market for top end vendors in 2011! A sale went through within two weeks. It is a great relief for a vendor to have sage guidance and HandMcPhee provided me with exactly what I asked for…Sam Harris a very relieved ex-city slicker.
Living in the Country of NSW and wishing to purchase property as an investment in the “Big Smoke” (Sydney) some 20 years ago, I engaged Peter Hand and he came up with one property with harbour views and another one in the business district of Mosman.
Years have gone by and I moved interstate, so when time came for me to sell, I didn’t hesitate to contact Peter. He was no longer in Real Estate but had moved on to a new line of business – Property Consultancy, acting for and behalf of clients wanting to purchase or sell property. At all times Peter kept me informed as to what was happening with my sale and engaged the selling agent and my property was sold within two weeks.. Thank you and “well done boys”
When the perfect unit for my mother came on the market the first person I turned to for advice was Gerry McPhee from HandMcPhee. I showed my mother the unit and she loved it. Gerry then secured the unit for her in two days.
I have known Gerry for many years and have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone buying or selling a property. I will definitely be asking his advice when my mother sells her current property. His expertise and professionalism in real estate are invaluable.
Buying and selling homes can be daunting especially after 35 years in the one home. After many months of searching for ‘the right place’ we turned to Gerry as for 20 years we have known of his expertize and knowledge of the property market and his ability to sell and secure properties for his clients.
Gerry and Peter reviewed our needs and quickly found, for us, the ideal place. Gerry then set about finalizing the sale of our home and coordinating the exchange dates.
Gerry’s knowledge of the property market made our move possible. He is easy to work with which takes much of the stress out of the process. We recommend Hand McPhee for anyone contemplating making those hard decisions of changing abode.

Over the 14 years that we have known Gerry McPhee, we have engaged Gerry as our agent to buy and sell several properties within Mosman. We have been exceedingly pleased with the work that Gerry has done and unreservedly recommend Gerry to anyone considering a property purchase or sale. Gerry has made it easier for us when selling and buying property.

When we recently intended selling an investment property our first call was to Gerry McPhee of handmcphee. We achieved a successful and stress free outcome in a short period of time.
Gerry managed the sale, from the selection of the selling agent through to the final negotiation and pre-auction sale. Gerry was available at all times for advice and consultation.
With his extensive local knowledge and wide consultation with selling agents, he proactively guided the sale to its successful completion.
We recommend the services of handmcphee without hesitation.

I have known Gerry McPhee on a professional basis for over 15 years and he has advised me on a wide range of property matters during that time. Gerry is extremely knowledgeable, proactive and genuine in the service he offers.
In February 2010 we appointed Peter Hand of HandMcPhee to advise on the appointment of a selling agent and to provide independent advice on the sale process, for our property in Woonona Rd Northbridge.
We found both HandMcPhee and the appointed sales agent to be professional and responsive at all times.
The property sold prior to auction and we were very happy with the result, which fell within the price range advised.
We would have no hesitation in recommending HandMcPhee to anyone who feels the need for an added level of comfort in his or her real estate decision-making.
Peter and Gerry were our buyers' agents and were always available for advice in regard to value of various properties of interest that we had located, and also were able to target potential properties in our preferred areas. This resulted in a successful property "find", and thanks to it not yet being on the market, Hand McPhee was able to negotiate a realistic purchase price for us.
Peter Hand and Gerry McPhee are gentlemen from the "old school" – and a delight to work with.
They enjoy our total trust, and we heartily recommend them – their ability to minimise the stress involved in real estate transactions is immeasurable!
Paul & Margaret Ward-Harvey
I engaged Gerry to research several buying opportunities and was delighted with his professionalism and his results!
Gerry is quietly and unpretentiously effective, thorough in his work, very prompt and proactive in his communication, displays a rare level of integrity and commitment to his clients, an ace researcher and is extraordinarily knowledgeable in his field.

We recently sought Peter Hand's help when selling our Cremorne home. We are based in London, were buying in the USA and didn't have the time to deal with the myriad of things involved with selling a tenanted home long distance.
Peter helped select the agent, conveyancer, went to the open house viewings to ensure the house was being presented in the best possible light and generally acted as both our eyes and ears as well as our advocate through the whole process.
On auction day he was the one on the other end of the phone and the outcome was one that we were all very happy with. I would not consider buying or selling a house in the future without using Hand McPhee.
Mr J & Mrs J Claman
We recently asked Peter Hand to represent us as we were unfamiliar with the general market and somewhat intimidated by the property auction system. Our target property was the purchase of a very desirable flat in the Eastern Suburbs.
Thanks to Peter's expertise in the Sydney property market, coupled with his negotiating skills, much to our surprise we managed to secure our new Sydney home prior to auction.
As we were located in Queensland it would have been extremely difficult for us to have achieved this task without his assistance.
Mr Graham Stewart
We are a busy Double Bay agency and were recently contacted by Peter Hand of Hand McPhee – buyers agents situated in Mosman, in connection with the sale of an apartment being marketed in Ocean Avenue, Double Bay.
Throughout the negotiations we found Peter Hand to be courteous yet businesslike which led to the property being sold prior to a satisfied and happy interstate purchaser.
We are continually approached by buyers agents who, at times, do not impress us, however in the case of Hand McPhee, we would have no hesitation in dealing with this company again at a future date.
