From our first meeting with Gillian through to the sale of our home, Gillian’s professionalism shone through. Her knowledge of the real estate market and sale process made us very comfortable acting on her proposed marketing campaign. Throughout the process, Gillian kept us fully informed, both verbally and in writing. We would highly recommend Gillian to anyone looking to sell their home.

Gillian conducted the recent sale of our home and we were confident she had the necessary skills to engage successfully with potential purchasers in the demographic likely to buy our property. She provided confident advice on recent sales in the area and kept on top of listings throughout the sale period, keeping us updated at all times. Gillian’s communication skills are outstanding and she has a genuine interest in people that stands her in very good stead in a competitive sales environment. Her prompt and courteous communications were very regular and transparent and gave us confidence in how our sale was progressing. Gillian’s professionalism and reasoned advice were always welcome and we’d highly recommend her as the agent of choice to potential vendors.
If you are looking to buy or sell a property in the ACT or NSW, look no further than Christine Shaw at Christine Shaw Properties. Christine was efficient, pleasant and meticulous and all this was combined with intimate knowledge of the wider housing market, homelessness and its political implications and a marked social conscience. I cannot recommend her too highly.
“With your long career in the Queensland, Federal and now ACT Government policy development as well as a distinguished career in real estate sales in the ACT (with a particular interest in affordable housing and refugee support), you are a unique, altruistic, amazing human being. I honour you and wish you well in your new endeavours. How refreshing – honest, caring, truly devoted beyond self, delivering important social outcomes whilst also delivering a platinum class real estate experience to sellers and landlords in the Canberra region.”
“I cannot recommend Christine Shaw highly enough. My dealings with Christine were always professional, Christine always called back promptly if she was not available. I live in Victoria so good communications were very important. Christine sold my apartment within a week so a very good result. I thought it may take up to 60 days. Well done Christine. Should anyone be searching for representation in the ACT I would be happy for Christine to pass on my mobile to prospective sellers. Christine is a total professional. I have sold many properties but Christine is among the very best.”
“I have recently listed my property with Christine Shaw and in my dealings, I have found her to be very helpful and knowledgeable. In particular Christine Shaw has gone far beyond what would be the normal expectation for a property agent. My property had been listed with Defence Housing and when the option in the DHA lease for early termination was activated I was caught unprepared. Christine came highly recommended and even though Christine is normally involved with property sales, she was only too happy to help me out with the releasing of my property.”
“Having bought and sold many times I have had my share of good and bad agents, so when a great one comes along I believe it’s worth putting pen to paper. Christine Shaw was an absolute pleasure to work with. Christine is upfront and honest, with a refreshing mix of friendly and sincere, with professional and let’s get the job done. Christine’s appraisal of our property was spot on, which was followed a few weeks later by a quick sale, getting us the price we wanted. It was refreshing to receive such wonderful service, and I would (and do) recommend Christine Shaw to anyone wishing to buy or sell.”
“Christine has now sold two properties for me – so repeat business, which is a recommendation in itself. I have gone back to her because in addition to being an informed, astute and enthusiastic agent, what I really liked was her ethics, which many agents talk about but are not great on in practice. Christine has principles; she is upfront and does not try to talk up the price at the start to get a listing only to talk it down later; she knows the law (and cares about seeing it followed); she does not pressure sell. These are all things I care about, and think that lots of purchasers do too. That said, Christine is very good at structuring a sale to maximise competitive tension, and she has shown she was willing to go the extra mile. For example, when she was selling a rental apartment she took on the task of contacting Housing ACT to try and get a neighbour’s door (one of their clients) painted. I would happily use Christine again to sell future properties.”
