Testimonials

623 Grassdale Rd, Gumdale

The decision to sell the family home was not an easy one, so when that time presented itself I had no hesitation in contacting Gail and Ian Gobey of Sash and Gable Property. I confess I was at an advantage, as having previously employed both Ian and Gail in senior management positions for a number of years, prior to Gail entering the real estate industry followed by Ian several years later, I was very comfortable with their work ethic, diligence, respectful approach while still possessing the tenacity to get the job done, and done well.

Gail’s initial visit with me highlighted what needed to be undertaken to get the home ready for the market. Her frank, professional advice was on point and significantly impacted the excellent result achieved following the preparation, marketing and presentation to the market; selling with the first few days of its launch.

It’s not often one finalises a real estate experience feeling satisfied that all aspects of the transaction were conducted at the highest level attaining a result that met my highest expectations.

Both Gail and Ian went above and beyond with support, advice and diligence towards the task at hand.

I can only thank and recommend Gail and Ian, and their team at Sash & Gable Property, for a job well done. - Michael Agustin


32 Madgwick Street, Wynnum

I could not have made a better choice when it came time to choosing a Real Estate Agent. Gail and Ian Gobey of Sash & Gable Property are clearly ahead of the game! Having met them 6 years ago when I purchased the property, their ethics, interpersonal skills, professionalism and client care made such an impression, no wonder they were top of my mind when I went to sell again. I am full of high praise for the way they conduct themselves at every moment of what can be a stressful and intense time. Gail and Ian are building a team of like-minded, friendly and caring people like themselves and I wish them every success in the growth of their business. - Belinda Daly


82 Southwick St, Wynnum

I cannot recommend Gail and Ian highly enough.

They were with me every step of my sale process and supported me through the whole thing.

They are professional, friendly and worked with me to get the result I wanted in selling my property. - Clare Radley


16 Pandorea Street, Wynnum

Gail has been a god send. From the moment we met Gail she was open and honest in her discussions in regards to our property. She answered any questions or concerns that we had and responded promptly.

During the process Gail would contact us daily to let us know how we were progressing with the sale of our property. I would have to say Gail is one of the most honest people I have come across and to me that's as important as a fantastic sales record. Very rarely in this day and age, do you come across people of such high integrity. - Cheryl-lee & Neil Kefford

Gail & Ian,

I would like to thank you & your wonderful team at Sash & Gable for the great work in marketing of our property.

Of the 9 estate agents we have dealt with over the last 40 years you & Ian have no peers and are without doubt in a class of your own, you are everything the other agent should aspire to emulate.

Your attention to all our concerns in regards to market price at the time, promotion of the property, whether to Auction or not, and countless other bits of advice along the way, (none of the usual spiel after we had been on the market for about 3 weeks; “the market has gone a bit soft & we will need to lower the price”) The positive call every day to let us know of the latest enquiries was very reassuring.

My only concern is that your business model runs the risk of giving the Real Estate industry a good name.

Your client and now friends, - Coralie & Henry  

27 Shepherd St, Wynnum

Gail and Ian Gobey provided a very professional and coherent selling campaign. They kept us update on developments and provided a excellent service and went to extended lengths to keep the property open for an hour after the advertised time for a late running buyer.

They both made a stressful process less daunting with clear communications and knowledge. We would recommend the Gobey Team to prospective buyers and have already forwarded their name to others for consideration in selling their properties.- Karl & Sigrid Teicher


6 Lacerta Place, Wynnum

Gail Gobey was recommended to us by our former neighbor when we decided to sell our property. She had sold a number of houses in our street and had the local knowledge that we felt would assist us in a successful sale.

From the initial meeting we felt that Gail understood us and had our best interests at heart. Her work ethic shone immediately and her drive to do the best job for us was evident. Her suggestions for styling and ways to positively promote our property were very helpful and she had excellent contacts for pool and landscaping assistance.

Throughout the campaign there were some challenges but Gail's determination to get a good result for us kept her working hard. She kept in touch with us all along the way and in the end she achieved a very successful sale for us.

We have witnessed the style of a lot of real estate agents in Brisbane yet we haven't found one that matches her for high work standards and commitment to doing the best job she can.

We would definitely recommend Gail and Ian to other prospective sellers and indeed, we have already done so. - Tracey and Michael Keefe


3 Nordenfeldt Rd, Morningside

Gail Gobey is a high achiever and always negotiates the best price possible for your property.

Gail has sold three properties on my behalf. She has always been honest and reliable and carries out everything in a highly professional manner.

I will use Gail's services again and highly recommend her to anyone wishing to buy or sell a property within a

short time frame and with minimum stress.- Yvonne Pascoe

Wilde Street, Wynnum

I appointed the services of Gail and Ian Gobey to sell my home in Wilde Street, Wynnum. I had tried to sell over a number of years, initially through other agencies and finally on my own, without success. While exploring the markets over a period of time and quite recently, to establish what was out there and for what price, I came across Gail and Ian at a number of their open inspections. It became quite evident while inspecting their properties and talking with them that they were the true professionals. At that point it became apparent as to why I had not managed to sell my house.

The presentation of their properties was impeccable while their attention to detail and care shown to both buyers and sellers was meticulous, to the point, and frankly second to none. They have a real and vested interest in their business which is clearly evidenced by their passion and diligence.

Upon their appointment they took complete control, offering clear direction and professional advice to get our home ready for sale. Gail is an extremely engaging person, persuading me to sell by auction, which was not my preferred option, but I am very pleased to admit that Gail and Ian put all of my auction concerns to rest. Their guidance and feedback throughout the 3-week campaign was instrumental in preparing me for the sale of my ‘unsellable’ home, which sold on auction day, under the hammer and for a price I was pleased to accept.

If anyone out there is seeking out a real estate agent who knows the business, is a great communicator, says what they mean and delivers on what they say – look no further than Ian and Gail Gobey. A truly incredible team! - Glenn Wiggins


Carlton Terrace, Wynnum

Thank you so much Gail and Ian for the way you sold my house. Not only did your professionalism, hard work and dedication result in a successful sale, but also your integrity and kindness made selling my house a much less stressful business than I was expecting. I have bought and sold a number of houses, and have never had a better experience. I was most impressed by your passion for your work. I am glad I chose you to sell my house, and have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending you to others. I wish you all the best in your future endeavours, and have no doubt at all that you will continue to be very successful. Your approach is just what anyone would hope to find.Carolyn


Sibley Rd, Wynnum West

Our first impression of Gail and Ian was that they are absolutely professional, in every way. Their appearance, their mannerisms, their knowledge, their sincerity and their whole approach to their work. They were focussed on us and our house; that made us very comfortable. We chose them due to all of those reasons but also because we felt we connected to them. You become a part of their community; we have even met other people through them which is something I’ve never seen done before. You don’t feel pressured. I have been in the property game myself and I know how sales operate, and I could honestly say I have never seen anybody operate as well as they did. What Gail and Ian offer as a team and individually is second to none. Their energy, their drive, their knowledge and their marketing of the property - we were in awe of their marketing. We had looked at other people and had other people approach us to try to sell their property but what Gail and Ian could offer was above and beyond. I don’t know how they could better themselves. They’ve nailed it, completely.Laurel and Peter Coleman


Melville Terrace, Wynnum

We met Gail and Ian at an open home and their first impression was so good we asked them to find a home for us. We had to go overseas during the buying process and they supported us the whole way – it ended up being a very good, stress-free experience and we enjoyed working with them. They are really genuine, down-to-earth people. They were very helpful and went above and beyond, doing far more than they needed to. We would definitely buy and sell with them again.Julie Adams-York


Pine St, Wynnum

Gail and Ian understand how to market houses for different targets. Gail and Ian’s knowledge of the real estate market is far better than others I’ve seen. We tend to stick to the rule that you don’t mix business and pleasure, so because we knew them personally we had other agents come through first, but they did not impress. Gail then came through and said, “This is what we need to do, this is who we’re going to market it to,” etc., and the choice was made. It’s been a very easy, pressure-free process. Allan and Sarah Hogan


Brockworth Street, Wynnum West

Gail was outstanding – very professional. She was not what I was expecting in that she was a good surprise when compared to other agents. She was so enthusiastic and up-to-date with everything when it comes to marketing; she knows what works in the local market. Everything she said to us was true and correct – there was no misrepresentation or dishonesty. She really went above and beyond. Ben French


Morningside, Brisbane

I met Gail 4 years ago when looking at a property at an open home and have been in contact ever since. I have sold 3 properties with Gail and Ian. Their marketing is exceptional, and they are very hard-working, honest and reliable people who always follow through with their promises – values which I very much respond to. Their knowledge of the area is a huge asset. They go over and above to look after their clients!Yvonne Pascoe


Ryder Street, Wynnum

Geoff and I would like to thank you for everything you did to sell our home. I know I phoned you often; I was very stressed and emotional, as we were on a time-line due to the bridging loan and needed our home sold by a certain date, before the bank came in. You took control, suggested we furnish a couple of rooms, which we did and the house then became a home once again. Every offer you got came to us with paperwork to back it up. You kept us in the loop and made the process so easy. The valuable advice you gave us regarding our property was fantastic. Your commitment, confidence and passion that the property would sell in the first week was spot on. We will be happy to recommend you Gail as an extremely trusted and professional agent. Thank you again.Sharyn and Geoff


Lacerta Place, Wynnum

We had to sell our house right in the middle of the Christmas period as we had placed a conditional offer on another property subject to sale. As I had engaged the services of Gail Gobey in the past and could not recommend her highly enough, I had no hesitations in re-engaging her again. Gail and Ian work so tirelessly to achieve not only the price we required, but also in the very short timeframe we had available during a traditional holiday period. Their attention to detail, personal attention, communication and professionalism leaves no doubt in our minds that Gail and Ian will always be our only choice in real estate. We no longer see Gail and Ian as realtors or professional acquaintances, but rather very good family friends. Thank you both for all that you have done, and who you are.Chris and Nicola


Ryder Street, Wynnum

It was in our search for an investment property that we came to meet Gail Gobey. Gail’s property description and photos on www.realestate.com.au had us interested right from the start in the property at Ryder Street, Wynnum. On inspection we were impressed by the presentation and layout and Gail’s description of the property was accurate. To help us think about things, Gail shouted us a coffee at Keith’s on Cambridge and gave us a follow-up call as promised. We decided to submit an offer on the property. We found Gail to be very down-to-earth, honest, personal and friendly throughout the whole buying process. Gail is very professional in her approach and goes the ‘extra mile’ to make sure her sellers and buyers needs are met. Gail provided us regular updates and progress reports throughout the settlement period which helped us relax and focus on what we had to do. We would definitely recommend her services. Gail also ended our buying experience with a beautiful hamper. Thank you Gail, you have been wonderful to work with.Brett and Kelli


Team Testimonials:

Jason Andrew Group

Gail and Ian are some of the most approachable yet presentable people you’ll ever see. They are so versatile in that they can look after high-end properties and offer a full suite of services but at the same time remain approachable due to their beautiful pleasant nature. They are also unbelievably thorough, right down to their follow-ups with buyers – for example sometimes an agent will call a buyer and if no-one picks up they leave it at that, but that is not Gail and Ian. They take service to another level. They have such a thorough understanding of their role in the process and really care for both their buyers and vendors, treating them both incredibly well. That level of service is rare in our industry. I recommend them to those looking to buy or sell in the bayside area without hesitation. Jason Andrew


Apollo Auctions

Working with them as their auctioneer, I would have to say they are very loyal. Once you become a supplier of theirs, you become part of their team. When I am booked in for an auction, they give me a complete overview. I’m kept up to speed right throughout a campaign with in-depth feedback reports about what the buyers are saying about the property. They are what you would call “complete service agents” – they really do offer a full suite of services to their clients. This unique, thorough service and in-depth involvement with the buyers means the rapport is great on both sides. They are also very ethical- everything is by the book, which I really appreciate. I have no hesitation in recommending them as very loyal, trustworthy and diligent agents who give 100% to their clients. David Holmes


Cedar and Pine

I have been fortunate enough to have both personal and professional relationships with Ian and Gail who have provided me with genuine, valuable business advice and support over the past 12 months. That we have become good friends throughout our professional dealings is a testament to the sincere, lovely people they are. - Mali Hannun, Owner
