Deb found the perfect property for our family

Deb Stephens is an expert in the character home market in Tasmania. She worked with us over four months to find us the perfect home in southern Tasmania. Deb went above and beyond the call of duty, even driving to locate kind and filming traffic volumes/noise for us, cold-calling owners for us, and talking with other agents to identify the right home for our family. When the right house/location became available, she knew it was right for us and achieved a great outcome for us and the vendor. During the sale process, Deb worked to ensure the handover would be seamless and that historical materials from the 1840s historic home were retained with the property after settlement. Since settlement, Deb has helped our family settle-in and introduced service providers, assisted with vehicle storage and found additional historical materials relating to the house. Deb is very hard-working, clearly loves what she does, she really cares for the properties she sells, and delivers exceptional services to buyer and seller. Deb Stephens deserves every bit of success she has achieved in her career in character homes in the great State of Tasmania!

As soon as I met Deb I was immediately comfortable. She gave me loads of confidence in her. When I engaged her she didn't let me down. She was kind and considerate. Patient. Hard working. And at the end of the day did what she and I aimed for - the best she and I could do and that was SOLD at absolutely the right price for the right buyer.

“Claremont House” 12 Lady Clark Avenue, Claremont

Over the past years I have dealt with many agents in buying and selling properties in Tasmania and Melbourne. Rarely do you find an agent that takes interest in the actual property rather than just another listing for their agency. To sell a significant home, it takes more than just internet marketing and a walk through with buyers. Specifically for my 190yo heritage listed 5 acre estate, Deb took genuine interest in the history and current renovations which led to her delivery on expectations in the timeframe. Her understanding attitude in negotiations with myself (vendor) and the buyers ended with a very positive outcome for both parties. I recommended Deb to friends that owned a similar property that she sold also, again very happy vendors and buyers.

Excellent service with Deb Stephens

Deb's excellent communication skills together with attention to detail and an excellent marketing plan, came together for a better than expected sale. She worked hard to create a positive environment for a quick sale which she achieved.

You may have noticed that 8 Bilton Street sold on Saturday by Auction. We wanted to share with you our experience with Deb Stephens and Joel Nielsen, our agents with EIS Property.

Deb and Joel were fantastic, from the moment we decided to sell and auction the property they both provided us with their undivided attention and had excellent marketing ideas which, on the day, proved to be a winner.

Nothing was too much for Deb and Joel, they were very considerate with acknowledging that we were selling our family home and were extremely focused on ensuring that the whole process was what we wanted; they left no stone unturned!

Deb and Joel exceeded our expectations by securing a buyer for the property and reaching a price that was well over what we were expecting; we can’t thank them enough!

We highly recommend Deb and Joel if you are thinking of selling your property, they will be sure to get the best possible price while providing you with exceptional service.

The peak of professionalism

I highly recommend Deb Stephens as a real Estate agent of utmost professionalism, diligence and competency. Deb Stephens took on the difficult task of successfully selling my property following the failure of another large real estate group to obtain an acceptable offer after three months on the market even after media releases to main stream news. The property was a very large and locally well known historic mansion. Deb from the outset was clearly superior to her competitors. She had a realistic plan of approach to the sales process which started with a well researched advertised sales price, included creating an emotional narrative in the advertising campaign, an open and scientific analysis of interested parties and an ability to communicate with the vendor and potential buyers with no ambiguities. Unlike my preceding experience of being patronised, she acted for me and on my behalf, with my interest as her top priority. Deb 's ability to communicate, her hard work and competency enabled a very complex contract to be made in a weekend. The successful completion of the sale involved further ongoing communication between both parties for three months which continued well after settlement for both sides, indicating her dedication and concerns for both the vendor and the buyer. I have now had experience now with the sales process of 2 properties. Deb went above and beyond what a "normal" real estate agent does. The property sale was part of a family law settlement. I am eternally grateful for Deb's respect and incredible assistance with the complex issues involved in the highly emotional sale process. Deb Stephens has my highest esteem and I have no hesitation in recommending her to any vendor. She shines where others fail, particularly if your property is large and historic. She has the well-deserved honour of successfully selling Hobart's two largest and most historic properties in recent years.

1/5 Montgomery Street, Sandy Bay

Ben gave me a comprehensive report on recent sales and explained how this influenced the price I was likely to get. He was able to answer all my questions, kept appointments on time and kept me updated on all proceedings. The open homes went smoothly and Ben put himself out to negotiate a higher price than was initially offered. I appreciate Ben's hard work and commitment and have no hesitation in recommending him.


66 Loatta Road, Rose Bay

Ben seemed to be genuinely interested in us as people and keen to oblige from his first appraisal of our house many months ago until its ultimate sale and he still keeps in touch as moving day approaches. He was always willing to consult with his colleagues to ensure that we got the best advice available. We are very happy with the way the whole process has been handled.


Eric + Ramona

21 Letitia Street, North Hobart

Ben interacted with us with courtesy and professionalism, and conveyed the impression that he really cared about this sale. He knew the market, had clients who were sympathetic to this style of house, and went beyond what might have been expected of him to ensure that he matched the property to the requirements of the purchaser, and achieved a price that we were very happy with.


Val + Geoff

21 Thelma Drive, West Hobart

Ben sold my property after only 8 days on the market-a fantastic result!

Ben helped me understand the process and explained every stage thoroughly, making it a stress-free experience.

He was exceptional at keeping me regularly informed and achieved a sale price that I was extremely happy with.

I will definitely enlist Ben’s help to sell my next property-I cannot recommend him highly enough.

A thousand Thankyou’s Ben!


34 George Street, North Hobart

Ben did a letter box drop in our street two years ago and did a valuation for us. When we made the decision to sell we contacted Ben again. He promptly updated our valuation and set the wheels in motion to market and sell our house. He suggested a great stylist, Scarlet and Co, to present our home in the best possible way. We were impressed with Bens professionalism and friendly manner. He negotiated a fantastic price for our house which sold in less than a week after the Saturday open home.

Professional and friendly service

I was completely satisfied with the professional and friendly service from my selling agent Deb Stephens.
I initially connected with Deb when I was looking to purchase a property in 2016.
While I didn’t end up purchase that property, Deb stayed in touch periodically keeping me updated with the market.

From the initial conversation on whether or not I should sell my property, to beyond settlement date, the level of enthusiasm and thoroughness Deb displayed was impressive.
Her market knowledge is second to note, which reassured me that I was in good hands. She was realistic about the market and kept her promises which made the process a smooth and easy one.
She is honest and genuinely interested in offering the best service possible.

I am so grateful for the efficient service and transparent advice. I have no hesitation in recommending Deb Stephens to sell your property. Deb is someone who you can trust.


11 Victoria Esplanade, Bellerive

In July 2013 we decided to sell our property at 11 Victoria Esplanade, Bellerive.
After seeking and obtaining real estate advice we engaged David as our Sales Consultant. This decision proved to be a masterstroke.
In David we found the most helpful, conscientous friendly and fully professional person. His timely assiduous attention to his responsibilities was extremely impressive. No stone was left unturned as he comprehensively reviewed our property and provided a realistic and well balanced assessment. This was done in the most objective and independant way resulting in us being most comfortable appointing him as our Selling Consultant.
At no stage did we feel unhappy with the advice he provided although it did not always conform to our preconceived views. He was very cordial and persuasive in gently reminding us that we held a far too optimistic view of the real estate market in Hobart at that time. His thorough, quiet and gentle nature assisted considerably to this end. His judgement and advice again proved to be correct.
His commitment to keeping us informed at all times reinforced our view that we had engaged the right person. His reports were never exaggerated nor threatening but fair and concise.
It became obvious to us that he had been well tutored and mentored during his career to date. At the same time he had the wisdom to take advantage of and prosper from this important and vital role in the contemporary business environment today.
We have no hesitation in recommending David to any prospective clients.

Just a quick note thanking you for negotiating the sale of our unit.
Right from the start we were encouraged by your knowledge and positive attitude.
You did what you said you would do and the communication and feedback was of the highest order and continually kept us informed.
Your ability to come-up with prospects was outstanding and you are to be congratulated for a job well done.
We would happily refer family and friends to you without hesitation.

Michael & Carol Ratcliffe

18/9 Pearsall Avenue, Blackmans Bay

My brother and I recently sold a property in Blackmans Bay employing David Gunning at EIS property as our agent. David was recommended to me by a work colleague. The reason for this sale was due to a deceased estate, this was a hard time for us and we faced many hurdles with our lawyers who were also the executors.
During this time David gave his full support and at at one point when I wanted to give up David even contacted the lawyers on our behalf and sorted out the issues which could have potentially lost the sale.
I was pleased to find his service courteous and professional during the entire period, from the initial phone call to settlement. David always kept us in the loop.
Thanks David you made selling our house during this difficult time stress free!!

We just want to thank you for selling our house. You made the process so easy, right from the time of listing our house for sale, to the moment that you sold it. We never had to wonder what was going on because you were always in constant contact with us. You offered us great advice on preparing our house for sale, which we believe helped us get the great price that we did. We would highly recommend you to all our family and friends and just want to thank you for all your hard work.

I really want to thank you for everything you did to manage the sale of Mum’s property, I couldn’t have hoped for a better agent. I felt completely confident with you in charge of the marketing and sale of the property and you delivered a good result. Better than that, you did a truly wonderful job, particularly in communicating with me from interstate and providing feedback on presentation, etc. I’d be more than happy to give you a recommendation, if you ever need one.


Thank you

I write to you to express - in the best way I can in the written word - my extreme gratification for the incredibly professional way you handled the sale of my family home in Lindisfarne. We achieved an outstanding result!
My Dad built this home in the 60's and we moved in around 1965 - I was just 15 years old. As you got to know me you particularly became aware of the essence, the substance and the memories that this home held for me and my brother Peter. It was full of so many memories - that will stay in my heart forever.
With Mum and Dad having both passed on it came the time to sell the family home. At the time we decided to interview several agents to ensure we were going to realise the best and fairest result. Having bought and sold several properties in the dynamics of the Sydney market we were looking for a real professional. I was also going to give the selected agent a really great product - presentation is everything!
Hank, your selection as the agent was easy and the others were very distant to what you positioned. Firstly, your presentation, personally and professionally, just confirmed your experience – you immediately gave me confidence. Your empathy - your sensitivity - your objective appraisal of the property - your respect for me and what I wanted to give you as a product. Your knowledge and sales tactics in the way to price the property and the marketing strategy was inspirational.
Hank, your commitment to me as the client - the vendor - your realistic approach to pricing strategy and the approach was comforting and made me feel that 'I was in the hands of a Pro' - someone who knew what he was doing and the years of experience always came through.
There were some complications as we moved through the process which involved the Council and other government bodies - you were a guiding light through that process. However, your greatest attribute - your greatest contribution - particularly when we were back in NSW – was your excellent communication – your timely and consistent updates – your proactive input to adjusting strategy etc. was outstanding and just continually reinforced that going with you was the best decision we ever made. Hank, you're a professional and if anyone wants a personal endorsement for your excellence please have them call me direct.
With warmest regards,
Lyn Ross

Thank you

For me, the process of packing up and selling Mum and Dad's house has been one of important people connections.
I really appreciated your professionalism and infectious enthusiasm in guiding us through the process. It made the journey a much more relaxed and enjoyable one than it might have been.
I am most thankful for Gail’s work in styling the house. It was great to see how good the house could look with a bit of creative furniture placement and decoration.
I am so grateful for friends who have willingly helped in the process of clearing the house. I hope that I can return the favour at some stage in the future.
I am currently at the stage of being able to regard the house sale quite dispassionately but I suspect that once it is no longer our house that there will be a whole new set of emotions that well up.
I hope that there is a new family that can make 49 Colville Street their happy home as it was for my family for so long.
Many, many thanks for your work with us.


Thank you

The last few weeks has seemed almost like a bit of a blur, but Tony and I just wanted to write and thank you for your assistance over this period. When we decided it was time to downsize our home Tony suggested that I contact you to discuss our options and with the prospect of you also selling our home, your counsel and friendship was very much welcomed. Being prudent we also approached two other agents for appraisals and after weighing up our options, decided to place the selling of our home in your hands. Your honesty and guidance about a realistic sale price and your marketing strategy gave us much comfort. So off we went to market! Well that's when it all happened and virtually overnight our home, under your professionalism and care, was sold. We do really so much appreciate your assistance, professionalism and friendship in this speedy process. From my prospective, the one thing that I wasn't looking forward to in the entire process was a never ending flow of prospective buyers wandering through our home. You were able to identify genuine buyers and complete the sale within the first week; I think that we really are still in shock. Your continued interest in looking for a new abode for us has also been appreciated. Hank thank you once again, and we certainly would recommend you to any prospective person wanting to sell their home. Tony and I wish you well and all of the very best of success going forward. With the kindest of regards Kaye and Tony Clifford

Kaye and Tony Clifford

Thank you

Now that the sale process is almost complete and I am about to depart, it's time to get my thoughts into words.
First, the process itself: The house, as we all agreed, is unusual and in need of modernisation. But being in Battery Point is it's great advantage. For these reasons I think the decision to get the independent valuation was wise and allowed us to have an objective opinion of its worth, especially as there were few if any recent sales of comparable houses in the area. On the other hand, your advice to set an open enquiry range meant that, using that initial value as a starting point, the advertising could be directed to attract people in the hope that we would find someone who really wanted it and was prepared to compete. This did happen and we couldn’t have been happier with the outcome, in such dramatic circumstances at the end.
Now to my feelings: This process had been a journey that now leads us to a new chapter of life. We have known for the last couple of years that Mum and Dad couldn't support each other for ever, but of course, it was not until it actually happened (and quite suddenly in the end) that it really hit home what a task it would be to move them out - emotionally and physically. After the initial period of settling Mum and Dad, I decided to set aside some dedicated time to clearing out the house. This was a daunting task, but turned out to provide some high points as well as lows. Throughout that time, it struck me a number of times just how much more difficult it would have been if I had been tackling the task after one of our parents had recently died. That they are both still living and that Dad, in particular, was able to explain and interpret some of our interesting finds was of great benefit. The exercise has allowed us to have some interesting discussions of past times that we may not otherwise have had. As well as that, we have made contact with a number of people that we've not been close to in recent times, but have been part of our lives in Battery Point. All have been happy to help and have also shared some of their thoughts and memories of our family.
Now, it is time for that chapter to end, but it remains a strong and happy memory.
Thankyou for your part in this closing the chapter. It made a difference to Ros and me that we had an experienced guide to advise and lead us through.


Thank you

I recently sold two houses through EIS Property Hobart. Hank Petrusma took a personal interest in the sale and guided me carefully through the process. I found his support invaluable and his advice wise and considered. I greatly value Hank’s long and deep experience in the property market and his real passion for what he does. For Hank selling houses is not just a job – it is his committed vocation that he sees as helping people to get to a place they want to be, to move on with their lives and to be happier and more fulfilled. This is what is really at the centre of selling a property. Thank you Hank – you made a difficult transition in life so much easier for me!

Sale of 6659 Channel Hwy Deep Bay

It gives us pleasure to write a testimonial for Nyal Merdivenci.

Open and informative discussions with Nyal prior to listing our property meant we understood and agreed with the property marketing strategies employed. We related well to Nyal and very quickly found that we were on the same page regarding the property presentation and documentation required to effectively market our home.

During the marketing process Nyal provided meaningful feedback and ensured that we were fully informed of each potential buyer. We believe Nyal has a passion for real estate and has an excellent understanding of our local market.

Nyal’s strong work ethic and willingness to go the extra mile ensured we were completely comfortable with our real estate dealings and he produced an outstanding result.

Nyal was extremely professional and sincere in all his actions and we would confidently recommend him.

Howard & Gerri Scott

Thank -You

I wish to take the opportunity to thank you for the excellent job you did for making my experience in purchasing my new property and then selling my existing one a pleasurable and stress free experience. In an age where customer service is so frequently bad or lacking, it is wonderful to do business with a consultant whose level of service is so high.

Thank you for always maintaining your positivity even when the results weren't initially as expected and for continuously following up with potential buyers and keeping me well informed through every step. Your professional courtesy, advice and honesty was greatly appreciated and you always responded immediately and resolved issues sensibly and quickly.

You have excelled in your area of expertise in real estate providing leadership and friendly support to me with continued interest and follow up afterwards that made feel like a friend and valued customer. Your professional accomplishment and contribution to real estate is exceptional. I could not have been any more pleased and impressed and will have no hesitation in recommending you to family and friends.

Many thanks for a wonderful job and for all the hard work that you put into my real-estate needs, above all your service was faultless and well beyond my expectation.

Yvonne Fischer

Thank you

Just wanted to send you an email letting you know how happy we were with our sale (and purchase) experience with you.  It just went so well! Your  friendly down-to-earth attitude, and nothing-is-too-much-trouble approach was fantastic.  You were happy to go out of your way to help secure  both our sale and subsequent purchase.

Your marketing approach for our property was clearly spot on.  We were so thrilled to be able to sell our house so quickly and for a fair price.  We have noticed that similar properties are still languishing on the market, having not got their price and marketing quite right.

We have had several experiences with agents in the past and would have to say that we really valued our experience with you and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone.

Chris and Philippa

Thank you

Hi Hank

Very happy with the outcome. Exceptional service.

Land sale in Cradoc

After speaking to 2 other agents I chose Nyal to handle the sale of my land in Cradoc, Tasmania. I chose Nyal because of his professionalism over the phone, good market knowledge and what he was able to offer to ensure my property sold quickly. He handled the negotiations very efficiently and therefore I was able to make a quick sale for a price I was happy with. Nyal also communicated well throughout the process.

Buying a nice house

Nyal helped me find a nice house suitable to my requirements. I had many options before going for this place. Some were less desirable and others more so. I was looking for a modern home with some free space for recreation. I also did not have that much time to make a decision. Nyal was prompt at my requests and helped me through the purchasing process.

Bob Betlehem

Thank You

I selected Nyal to be the agent for selling my home after he showed us through a house I was looking at buying. I was impressed by the thoroughness and research. I was not disappointed with my choice. Nyal's skill in planning and executing the marketing plan for my house meant a sale that was rapid and with a sale price higher than expected. I would not hesitate to recommend to any prospective house seller. He is a thorough agent who has always got your back.


Thank you

I would just like to thank your company for selling my property at Berega Street, I would like to especially thank your sales lady Deb Stephens. I have never been through the selling process before but she put my mind at rest and showed kindness and sympathy to an 84 year old, the help and advice I got was more than my relatives gave me. She was not just a sales lady but a friend who gave kind and constructive advice in a language that I understood and above all confidence in selling. I have told a few of my friends who are thinking of making a move similar to mine about this lady, so you will no doubt get requests for her assistance in this area. Thank you and please pass on my thanks to Deb Stephens.

Bill Saunders

132 Sandhill Road

I have pleasure in testifying to the professional excellence of Deb Stephens, who recently sold my house. From the outset when she listed my home and advised on a marketing plan, Deb showed an exceptional care for detail, from the photographs and description for the web and brochure advertising to the organisation of an open home and private viewings of the property.

Deb's advice on marketing and pricing was extremely insightful, and her hard work resulted in the speedy sale of the house. Even after closing the sale of the property Deb has remained generously available for assistance and advice.

I can confidently recommend Deb to anyone seeking a highly-organised, efficient and ethical real estate agent.

Marie Di Benedetto

Helpful and clear

This purchase was our first and David was very helpful and understanding. He and his company guided us through the process. They were clear and contactable whenever we needed and we look forward to working with them as property managers.

Excellent, Honorable Agent

I was lucky enough to buy a house through David Gunning. David was an incredibly honest, easy to communicate with real estate agent. He worked hard to negotiate for me in the purchase of my house and I am very grateful to David for making it such an easy, stress free process. He worked all hours of the clock to ensure all went smoothly - even bringing the contract to me at 9pm at night to ensure all went through as well as it could. David went out of his way to assist in all he could in all aspects of my house purchase. I love my new house - thank you David for all of your hard work!!

104 Giblin St, New Town

An absolute professional.

Our experience selling with David Gunning was fabulous. He was easy to deal with, answering our calls and emails quickly, and simplifying the paperwork. David took the time to understand our situation, and gave us realistic and sensible advice. Not only was our house sold after just three days on the market, David and his team stayed in touch through until the settlement date. I would not hesitate to recommend David and the rest of the EIS Property team.

9 Jutland Street, New Town

Excellent strategy!

Dave has sold 2 houses for me and both time I received more than I expected. The second sale just recently sold for way over the upper band limit! It’s all about tailor made strategy with Dave. He had a completely different method for both sales but these were the best for the property and for the market.

Extremely helpful and professional.

David sold my house for me in South Hobart recently. He was extremely helpful & professional right from the beginning when he came to talk with me to explain his approach to marketing & selling. He was very thorough doing the appraisal, gave me advice to get the house ready to put on the market & achieved a good result with the sale. Throughout the process he kept me informed, always returning my calls promptly & nothing was too much trouble for him. When anything needed to done he came to me, never had to make a trip to his office. I would feel very confident in recommending David to anyone looking for an agent to sell their property.

62 Hillborough Road, South Hobart

Could not recommend David or EIS Property more highly, very professional & great communication

I have known David Gunning for a number of years and dealt with EIS Property previously as a tenant. We asked his advice in preparing our investment property for sale and found this paid off resulting in achieving a great price. He is always highly professional, works extremely hard for the vendor to get the best price and conditions on a contract, has great communication skills and felt very confident in signing the sole agency that he would get the job done quickly. Our property went on the market on a Thursday with numerous contracts presented on the Saturday. We would highly recommend David and EIS Property.

61 Hilton Road, Claremont

Professional and Reliable

David was professional and reliable though out the sale of our family home. His understanding of our area and the market in general, ensured a successful marketing campaign that achieved our price expectations. I would highly recommend David and the team at EIS.

We were both delighted to have you on board after noticing your experience and eye for detail – making sure immediate preparations were at the utmost, all ready for inspection...... so much so, that to our absolute pleasure, the property sold within days  ....... !

We thank you so much Deb for a job so well done and yes, highly recommend you in the field in which you definitely stand out.  Be assured that if property becomes a topic of conversation, your name will be mentioned and  held in highest regard.   Again, many thanks.

Recently I have had the pleasure of working with Deb Stephens from EIS Property in the sale of my property in Bellerive. Right from the start I knew I was working with a professional as we worked through a detailed examination of my property and left no stone unturned in ensuring every positive attribute was identified and documented. Deb also provided a high level of consultancy service which also prompted the line of positive thinking as an approach to selling my property. Deb was totally involved and enthusiastic as we worked together to an early SALE (Contract within 24hrs of the first Open House) of my property. I am indebted to her professionalism.

Ewan Douglas

23 Eighth Avenue

We have just been notified of settlement and transfer of funds resulting from the recent sale of our property.

Deb Stephens, thanks for your sterling efforts in bringing this about.

A family member who is familiar with the real estate industry in Tasmania originally recommended you to us. He noted your integrity and competence.

We have now sold three rental properties through you and found that recommendation was fully justified.

We have appreciated your honest appraisal of the property and sound advice as to the way it should be offered.

What we particularly noticed after engaging you was the vigour and enthusiasm with which you approached the task. This was refreshing to see in the

Tasmanian real estate market. Perhaps it is not surprising then that the properties sold so quickly in each case.

As you know, we were concerned with the recent sale, because you would be dealing with rental agents from another company — a company with a sales team of its own. But you allayed our concerns with the promise of good relationships with the rental agent, and this proved to be the case. Everything went smoothly.

Once again thank you and all the best.

Ian & Fay

Thank you

I would like to thank you for your services in selling my house at Glenora. I don’t think I have the words to convey how I feel but I will try. After a very distressing experience with another agency that resulted in a terminated contract leaving me thousands out of pocket, you made the effort the help me every step of the way, to make sure I knew exactly what was going on throughout the selling process and you understood my emotional turmoil in selling our dream home after my husband’s sudden death. You went out of your way to fly up to Brisbane with two contacts and explained thoroughly the terms and conditions of each so I could make an informed decision. There was never any pressure from you to sign and when I did signed contract I knew you were acting on my behalf. You made sure my interests were protected and you made sure the sales process was as stress-free for me as possible. Hank, thank you for everything you have done to help me get through one of the most difficult times in my life and should I ever need your services again I wouldn’t hesitate to seek your help again. To anybody looking at selling a property, Hank is your man - he’s professional, kind, friendly, very approachable, goes over and above the call of duty and will do all he can to ensure he finds the right buyer on the right terms.

Nyal is approachable and personable. As a buyer, I found that he was really quick to respond to my enquiries at any time of the day and also followed up all other questions that I had if he couldn’t answer them on the spot. Nyal happily offered to show us property the following day on a weekend after the official open home as my partner could not make it. He kept us informed throughout the quick settlement and made things straightforward.

From our first contact with Nyal Merdivenci, we were impressed with his knowledge of the district, availability of property and his assessment of our needs. He was courteous, thoughtful, helpful and friendly from the outset, never "pushy". Over the months we have known Nyal, we have come to appreciate his honesty, his respect for his clients and his continuing friendship and interest in us. He has and continues to be very helpful: he put us in touch with some excellent trades people, he has called in several times to see how we were settling into our home and our new life in Tasmania. He is affable, professional and open and honest. He has our highest recommendation as an agent and he would be our first choice should we ever need to market our property.

It was clear during the negotiation and sale that Nyal had the best interest of all parties in mind. Very polite and was on time for the inspection.

Highly Recommend David Gunning

David made the sale of our property a seamless and hassle free event with his professional and diligent approach. David is a true professional who certainly puts his client as his No 1 priority and we can highly recommend him!

1/26 View Street, Sandy Bay (Vendor)

Very professional agent

Could not be more pleased with how passionate David was and how hard he worked to achieve such a quick sale on the property. Would highly recommend him.

16 Johnston St, Moonah (Vendor)

Excellent Agent

David is very professional and genuine. It was refreshing to deal with an agent in this climate who provided such outstanding service. Experiences with other agents had been very dismal. David always made himself available and returned my emails and calls immediately. I could thoroughly recommend EIS and David’s services!!

26 York St, Sandy Bay (Purchaser)

Great communication and authenticity

I have used David to sell 2 investment properties in the greater Hobart area. This was my first experience as a vendor and David was very good at explaining the processes involved and answering any questions I had. I found him to be approachable, responsive to communication and I appreciated his genuineness. I felt confident in his knowledge and suggestions. The sales went through smoothly and I was very happy with having him as our agent. I would have no hesitations in recommending him to other people who are thinking about selling their property.

131 Carella Street, Howrah (Vendor)

Outstanding service

We have now both bought and sold a house off EIS, more specifically David Gunning. His honest straight forward approach was exactly what I wanted. His estimates were accurate and his attention to detail and customer service were second to none. I do not hesitate in recommending him and his agency!

67 Ineke Drive, Kingston (Vendor)

We trusted David

Trust is not high on list of attributes generally given to RE agents. The spin used by agents does not foster trust. We trusted David. His communication is at a high level, as is his negotiation skill. There was little or no BS, he told it like it was. Having dealt with many agents in three states we found David to be one of a rare breed. Well done don't change.

16 Caroline St, Dynnyrne (Purchaser)

Compliant and honest.

My dealings with David were extremely professional. The fact that I purchased property sight unseen and could only base it on David's recommendations, speaks volumes about his honesty. David did the little things right when it came to purchasing a property and it was for this reason that I could trust his nature. Highly recommended.

24 Monash Ave, Lenah Valley (Purchaser)

Great to deal with

My experience with David and EIS property was really positive. His communication was excellent, by phone, text and email, and I found his information and advice very useful during the tense time of placing an offer on a place I really wanted. I would recommend this agent to anyone.

2 Peronne Ave, Moonah (Purchaser)

No 1 best agent in Tasmania.

I cannot speak highly enough of David. His enthusiasm for real estate and his comprehensive knowledge of market conditions and appropriate marketing is evident in the result achieved.

My house was sold within 3 short days of going on the market, before the first open home and for a price well above my expectations. I cannot thank David enough for his outstanding work and positive approach, which instilled me with confidence throughout the process from listing to sale. I would not hesitate to recommend David - and I do - to anyone thinking of selling their home. His genuine and friendly attitude make him a pleasure to deal with.

26 King St, Sandy Bay (Vendor)

David Gunning

David assisted in finding investment opportunities for me and presented baker street, new town. David was very helpful in providing all of the information and market research that I needed to fully analyse this opportunity. I would highly recommend David to anybody looking to sell or needing assistance to purchase a property.

5 Baker St, New Town (Purchaser)

Over & Above

Ben Gray went over and above what was expected with the sale of our property. His professional approach and "can do" manner made selling our property as stress free as possible. No issue was too big or too small, and we were particularly impressed with the high level of communication throughout the process, right up until settlement. We Would have no hesitation in recommending Ben to anyone or making use of his services again. Well Done!


Ben was fantastic

Ben was fantastic. We were only curious about what our property was worth to begin with. Ben was able to give as an accurate appraisal and also up-to-date information pertaining to sales in our property location. We sold the property for more than we anticipated and Ben's professional manner and friendliness made the whole process easy. Thanks Ben


Couldn’t ask for a better result

Sold my house in West Moonah and chose Ben from EIS. Was a great communicator and went above and beyond what I expected. My property sold within 24 hours of it being marketed and Ben rang me at 8pm the next night with 5 contracts on the property. What more could I ask for!! If you are looking for an agent who is easy to communicate with, honest and appears driven enough to achieve the result you want/need, I would have no hesitation in recommending Ben.


Experienced, professional and personalised

When first making an appointment with Adrian at my home I enlisted a friend to sit in, as selling my home as a single, mature woman was frightening. I interviewed more than one estate agent, but it was Adrian who without a doubt was my choice. During the selling process, I came to feel very confident that I had made the right choice. Adrian's experience meant he had elicited the information he required from me to adequately be able to price my home and to represent it to prospective buyers. He suggested a few things I might do to get it ready for sale, although always leaving the decision up to me. He asked me directly what I hoped to get and Adrian was able to achieve my hoped-for price, even after commission, legal fees and a few improvements I had paid for. The house sold quickly with a turn around of about 6 to 7 weeks from the initial contract(subject to finance) to settlement day. I have every confidence in recommending Adrian Gray from EIS real estate as an honest, competent and diligent real estate agent.

Agent you can trust !

Having our confidence shaken by unsuccessful attempt at sale of our property with another real estate agency, we were fortunate that we decided to trust Ben to give it another go. Ben proved to be extremely professional and dedicated, he possesses sound knowleledge of local real estate market and its trends. He along with Adrian planned the sale of our property really strategically, giving attention to every detail that might have caused a difference, keeping excellent commumication with us at all times. He has not hesitated a single time working after hours for viewings or for communication. With his great planning, communication and negotiation skills, he managed to achieve the desired outcome within the first week ! Thanks very much Ben and Adrian for your hard work. You will always be our first choice and we will very confidently and gladly recommend you to anyone else.


Very good agent

It was a pleasure to deal with Ben especially when you are dealing with something as important and emotional as selling your home. Ben was never pushy or overbearing and has helped me through the process. I wish him all the best in his career.


212 Sawyers Creek Road, Mountain River

What a fantastic and easy experience we had with Nyal!  We've had a few very poor experiences with real estate agents, so we were a little cautious in our choice of an agent to sell our current property. We honestly could not have been happier with the service and support we had from Nyal. He could not do enough for either ourselves or our purchaser. Thanks so much Nyal. We would definitely recommend you to anyone who asks!!

Tasmania's Best Real Estate Agent!  I would like to thank Nyal for his organised and thorough professional service as a Real Estate Agent, I appreciate his patience with me in investing his time to ensure I understand the process throughout the transaction. He constantly provided me with updates, without me having to chase him up for information. Nyal you not only display a honest professional attitude but also a friendly temperament which made the whole transaction very smooth for me. I would recommend you as a real estate agent to every person I know, who is interested in buying and selling property within your jurisdiction.

My experience with Nyal has been positive. He responded quickly to my enquiries and communicates well. He was well informed regarding the property and provided frank and fair advice prior to me making an offer. Paperwork was well explained and follow up was smooth and well executed.


Stoke House

Thank you Deb Stephens for your exceptional professionalism in selling our properties at 12 and 14 Stoke Street New Town.

You have been a pleasure to deal with and both Angela and I have been overwhelmed with the generosity you have presented us with.

“Stoke House” was not an easy sale, but by persistence and tireless effort you managed it to a satisfactory conclusion.

You were available and kept us informed at all times. We were impressed at the amount of work you put into selling our property both in facing prospective clients with inspections and actually vetting emails and enquiries.

We would have no hesitation in recommending you as the preferred agent in any sale.  We will always remember and refer anyone we know to you.

Your skills must surely be recognised not only by us but also by other clients and hope you are valued by your peers, as we value you.

We now regard you as a friend who is most welcome to our future home.

We sincerely wish you every success and happiness in the future.

Sold with a smile.  Nyal's relaxed and friendly personality made selling our home a present experience, it was more like having a friend sell our home, he was always open to our suggestions and went out of his way to keep us informed.

Philip and Tracey


Really Pleased – Nyal is a great agent.  As a buyer, you tend to feel like the agent is on the sellers side.  Not so with Nyal.  We could tell he loves his job and was genuinely negotiating for both parties.  Even though all the paperwork has been signed Nyal still makes time to touch base with us to see how we are travelling prior to settlement.


263 Cygnet Coast Road, Lymington

Nyal suited us.  We were very happy with the way Nyal dealt with our sale. He was friendly and efficient and got the job done. And he understood the unusual qualities of our place and they were not straightforward. We are grateful for his service.
