I have known Tamara Gross for over 15 years, during this time Tamara has sold and leased shops on our behalf.

 

In my experience as the GM of Scanlan & Theodore, Tamara has always kept us up to date with the movements of retailers in the high street shopping strips.

 

Her vital knowledge of the strips and fashion groups has been invaluable particularly through her awareness and understanding of market trends.

 

Tamara particularly has a passion for fashion and all things retail, she communicates with energy and integrity.

 

We continue to value her advice and know that Tamara is an integral part of retail leasing within Melbourne.

Peter and I would like to thank Michael, Alex, Raoul and teams for all their hard work in selling Dad’s properties.

 

Their professionalism was exceptional.

 

They all made the process a lot more comfortable than we both expected. We wanted to sell, but also respect Dad’s and Mum’s way of thinking. Their support was amazing.

 

We look forward to working with Gross Waddell for the rest of the properties in the next few months.

I have been fortunate to work with Tamara Gross from Gross Waddell for the past nine years. Tamara has assisted Husk in a range in property related matters over this time. I have found Tamara to be extremely diligent and hard working. These attributes combined with her extensive knowledge of the Melbourne property landscape have allowed her to make a valuable contribution to our business.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to Jonathon McCormack and the team at Gross Waddell for the fantastic result achieved with the sale of our property.

 

We had been through listing presentations from a few residential agencies but given our site is on a main road and the recent appetite for development in the area we agreed to meet Jonathon on the back of another excellent result he had achieved close by.   Right from the start we felt comfortable with Jonathon’s approach. He was well researched and his listing presentation certainly impressed.   His contacts in the developer world and his overwhelming confidence that he would achieve the result we wanted were a key part in our decision to choose your agency and let’s just say he did not disappoint !

 

Jonathon managed to negotiate a sale shortly after his appointment saving us on advertising costs and the general stress of a normal marketing campaign.  His negotiations skills were exemplary and the final price far exceeded even our most optimistic expectations.

 

We would certainly recommend Jonathon to any Vendors considering selling their property particularly where zoned for development.

I write this letter in reference to the services that Gross Waddell has provided to the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne over a period of 20 years. The Anglican Diocese of Melbourne (Diocese) is comprised of 205 parishes (over 700 properties) from the Bellarine Peninsula, throughout greater Melbourne and down to the Mornington Peninsula. I have personally worked with Gross Waddell over the last three years.

 

Gross Waddell is the exclusive commercial agent for the Diocese for all sales and commercial leasing requirements. In addition, Gross Waddell provides the Diocese with general property advice across our portfolio of property. In respect of our long church history, many of our properties have complicated titles and planning constraints and our buildings often have heritage considerations. In addition, there are considerable sensitivities associated with property matters within the church. In relation to these matters, Gross Waddell has achieved excellent outcomes for our property transactions demonstrating its extensive industry knowledge, depth of industry contacts and understanding of the uniqueness of our industry. In each of our property transactions, Gross Waddell has been able to develop excellent relationships with the relevant parish and associated stakeholders, engendering a high level of trust and confidence in its service.

 

Over the last three years, I have worked with Gross Waddell on several sale transactions where the results have exceeded our financial expectations. Of note are the sales of sites (church, vicarage and hall) in the parishes of Yarraville and Footscray earlier this year, where the sales results, being well over valuation, are allowing the parishes to undertake extensive works on their other church sites. Last year, a sale of property and associated joint venture with a developer at our Essendon parish, is providing the Parish with a small development assuring it of ongoing income to support its ministry activities and ensure the ongoing significant maintenance of its heritage buildings. This was a very complicated transaction requiring considerable negotiations with interested parties to ensure the selection of a joint venture partner who was suitable to work closely with the Parish and Diocese, as well as achieving an appropriate financial outcome.

 

I highly recommend Gross Waddell to any organisation requiring sales and leasing services and am pleased to be contacted for any further detail required.

The commitment and dedication to achieving the goals of Bunnings shown by Gross Waddell is impressive. We had every confidence that good results would be achieved and they did not let us down.
