Relationships Matter | McKillop Property

Some say real estate agents are like Introduction Agencies for the property industry, seeking ‘candidates’ of buyers and vendors and then endeavouring to match the two to make a perfect match.

Well, I’ve been considering it for a while but when I saw the Southern Highlands story in Domain on the weekend I decided it’s time. It may sound a little odd for a real estate agent to be prompted to write a blog on the back of an article trumpeting The Highlands as a ‘trophy location’. How could any agent be upset at that? . . .
