Golden Gavel Winner – 2019, 2020 & 2021
We recently worked with Hamish Mill on the sale of our Parkside property. Hamish was easy to work with from beginning to end. He was incredibly organised and kept us informed of every detail along the way. While his rapport and positive approach to marketing a property made the experience a smooth process, it was his superior auctioneering skills that set him apart. Hamish made the auction goers feel at ease, which we believe got us the best possible price for the property. As the agent/auctioneer, Hamish knew all of the vendors personally and was able to use strategies to keep the buyers bidding on the property to meet our expectations on price. It was a positive and seamless process from our end, and we would be happy to recommend Hamish to anyone looking to sell their property. Kind regards Parkside homeowners
" TESTIMONIAL - HAMISH MILL "
Dear Hamish Fabulous outcome at auction today. I am so pleased to have the house sold to a lovely couple who will obviously enjoy living there and with your assistance the process was great. We really appreciated your expertise, positive attitude and direct instructions to help us get the big job of selling the house completed. The Williams Harcourt team, the marketing process and your contacts such as the homestylist helped take the pressure off and provided great advice and encouragement. The day of the auction was handled very professionally with a touch of humour for our nerves and the support provided by Williams Harcourt team ensured attention to the details and that the large crowd of people who attended were well supported. An exciting competitive process and a win/win for all in attendance. Well done. Regards Sara Blunt
Selling our family home in much sought-after North Adelaide was a stressful decision for my mother to make, as was preparing the home for sale. Aided by his commanding wealth of professional knowledge and experience, Hamish provided exceptional advice throughout this difficult period. It was always delivered with great empathy and a sensitivity beyond that which was required. Hamish’s attention to detail is relentless, from home presentation tactics to the follow-up and feedback that is provided to vendors and potential buyers alike, he doesn’t miss a beat. It is obvious that Hamish has a great passion for his job that pays great dividends for his clients. The Harcourts Williams campaign process is outstanding. The photography and videography excels, and is well-supported by strategically designed traditional media campaigns – the results speak for themselves. The auction day was a well-managed event with a very well-presented Harcourts team ensuring that all aspects were expertly managed to achieve an outstanding result. We are very grateful, and highly recommend Hamish and the Harcourts Williams team to anyone looking to sell a property. Rebekah Rosser
Re : Hamish Mill We recently sold our property at 26, Fort Ave. Kensington Gardens. SA. From our first contact with Hamish his enthusiasm and professionalism created a positive impression. As we live interstate we were naturally very concerned that the Real Estate Agent that we chose would not only achieve a good outcome, but would also keep us closely and realistically informed. The feedback and advice that we received from Hamish was invaluable at every step of the way. We are happy to say that we successfully sold our property at auction for a great price. We would have no hesitation in recommending Hamish to any prospective vendor. Yours sincerely Earl & Jayne Stuart-Bell
16 September 2014 TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN Some four weeks ago I entrusted Hamish Mill to sell my investment property, and I was not disappointed. Hamish streamlined the process as he moved seamlessly from one stage to the next. His energy and enthusiasm for the job he clearly loves, rubs off very positively on those people he works with and those who are both vendors and potential buyers. He faithfully reported back after each open inspection and left nothing to chance. There was very good communication from him at every stage. Then came the day of the auction. His welcoming of potential bidders put them at ease. He knows how to speak with people and gain their confidence. The auction begins. Hamish knows his stuff and cleverly works the bids. His mind moves confidently with the speed of the bidding. He knows where to go and how to get there. He is a professional. I am most impressed with the way Hamish handled the entire process for me, and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who is considering a sale, and who wants to gain the best results. You will also be entertained along the way. Yours sincerely Tony Tamblyn Glenelg
49 Coorara Avenue, Payneham South Auction: 15th November, 2014 When we contacted Hamish we were in “a pit of despair” having just found out that the sale of our property had fallen through. Then we contacted Hamish and his confidence, enthusiasm and energy turned us around. Hamish’s understanding of the market was invaluable in assisting us to make the right decisions. With Christmas approaching fast the pressure was on! Hamish and his excellent team took us from marketing to a successful auction in less than four weeks. We were impressed that Hamish was able to generate enough interest in the property to have eleven registered bidders at the auction. This is the second house that Hamish has sold for us, both with outstanding results. So from “the pits of despair” we are now “over the moon” having sold our house and being many tens of thousands of dollars better off. When we need to sell next, Hamish will be the first person we contact. We recommend that you do the same. James Jordan & Louise Rodbourn

Hamish Mill While looking to purchase a new property, we looked at many properties and saw many auctioneers. We met Hamish Mill and attended one of his actions and we were very impressed with his approach. It was an exciting auction, Hamish did an amazing job, everyone left with a smile on their faces and I felt sure the vendors would have been more than happy with the result. We decided to invite Hamish to look at our property and consider him to handle the up and coming sale. From the onset Hamish was more than helpful and offered sound and honest advice. It has been a pleasure working with Hamish – he has a keen eye for detail and handled all aspects of the sale in a timely and professional manner. Our campaign was well organised and professionally presented – the photographer also excelled. The internet response was amazing ensuring a very positive turnout for the open inspections. Combine this with Hamish’s honest approach when dealing with all the stakeholders concerned the final outcome met all our expectations. It must be said that Hamish really is one of the best auctioneers I have seen in many years – we especially appreciated his ability to handle all the aspects of the sale from start to finish. Both my husband and I would not hesitate to recommend Hamish as he has the ability needed to get the job done without stress. Finally the auction day was one of excitement, a large crowd plenty of registered buyers, thunder and rain but a good time was had by all. Now we can move on happily to our new home. Thanks Hamish. Karin & Tom Katsapis.
Letter of recommendation. 03 September 2014 To Whom It May Concern, Hamish Mill acted as our agent for the recent sale of our property at 46 Newbon Street, Nailsworth. We opted to list the property with Hamish after meeting him at an earlier open home and finding him professional and thorough. In particular Hamish was one of surprisingly few agents who called and emailed to follow up on our inspection. Throughout our dealings with Hamish we found him to be well organised and always available. The team of people who assist Hamish in his marketing are excellent, in particular Jo Walsh, whose home styling was exceptional. As we had hoped Hamish was very professional throughout the sales campaign and followed up with people who inspected our home. We are sure this helped maximise the number of people attending and ultimately bidding at our auction. We have no hesitation recommending Hamish to any prospective vendors in the future. Sincerely,James and Rebecca Hughes
9 September 2014 To Whom It May Concern Hamish Mill acted as our agent and auctioneer for the recent sale of our property at 17a Brookside Avenue Tranmere. We met with several agents prior to sign with Hamish. Hamish was professional in his approach to the marketing of our property and we like the idea that the person marketing it was also the auctioneer.Throughout our dealings with Hamish we found him to be well organised and always available. From quick response to emails, follow up phone calls and sms we always felt that we were fully informed as we proceeded through the 4 weeks of open inspections prior to auction.We were impressed with the stylist, Jo Walsh and we took on board most to the suggestions she offered to us which, we believe, helped us to present our property showing its best attributes. Zoe, the photographer, took great photos and presented our property both for brochure and internet very creatively.On auction day, even though we weren’t feeling particularly confident (and I don’t believe Hamish was either), he was nothing but professional in his approach to prospective bidders, and his two assistants, also managed to keep us calm and well informed throughout the whole process, which was new to us as we have never sold (or bought) at auction. After an extremely slow start to proceedings, with only 2 of the 3 registered bidders showing any interest, Hamish managed to drag the price up to 700,000 which is what we wanted. If you sign your property with Hamish Mill, you can be assured of a thorough and professional marketing plan and, as Hamish says “I don’t need a plan B – I will sell your property at auction” and he did!!! Kind regards Megan & Phil McLaughlin
Dear Hamish, Thank you for your excellent service in selling 6 Cann Close Felixtow for my mother. I have greatly appreciated your professional and personalised approach. From the outset you understood the value of the property and the strategy to maximise its price in the current market. You carefully explained that strategy to me, kept me well informed of interest levels through the open inspection process and delivered on its promise at auction. You achieved well above the reserve and followed through with the settlement occuring last Friday. Your positive and professional approach to advice and doing business delivers great results and I thank you for it. I would recommend you to anyone wishing to sell their property in Adelaide. All the best for the future. Kind regards Ann Draper
Dear Hamish, Thankyou for conducting the recent sale of our home at Kensington Park. Peter and I were very impressed with your enthusiasm and positive approach to the marketing. It was very evident to us that you have a passion for your work and this makes you stand out amongst your peers. During the marketing period we felt that we were kept well informed about how many groups had inspected the property and who had been back for multiple visits. You gave us lots of feedback and helpful points about the presentation of the property. We felt that you involved us completely (and even allowed me to enjoy playing agent myself when there were some stragglers at the end of an open inspection). Your prediction of there being several registered bidders and lots of interest in the property proved to be correct and you achieved a wonderful result for us on the auction day. We are now looking forward to building our own retirement dream house and we are pleased that a young family will be enjoying the home we have loved for many years. I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone wishing to sell their property and wish you every success in the future. Kind regards Elaine Waye

Dear Hamish, Thank you for your wonderful effort in auctioning 55 Devonport Terrace. To have 11 registered bidders on the day in a downturned market was truely amazing! Your totally focused approach leaves no stone unturned, you also work with an amazing team of people, the photographer, home stylist, and writer were all terrific. You certainly kept me on my toes all the way through the process making sure I was on target with getting the place ready for auction. At all times we were on the same page, making sure that we would achieve the best results at auction. Yes I did deliver the 500 flyers to houses in the area, in fact I enjoyed the exercise! At the end of the day we were all extremely happy, house sold, mission complete! Hamish you are the Auction Master! Kind Regards Julie Barry “Limerick” Clare.
