James Giltinan and his team at Coogee Real Estate

I found dealing with James Giltinan to be an absolute pleasure. His knowledge of the area and his professional attitude was amazing. He dealt with everything relating to the sale of our house quickly and efficiently and nothing was too much trouble. He returned calls quickly and if he didn't know the answer to a question he found out and came right back. He, and his team, worked tirelessly and I was delighted with the result. I highly recommend James and all the staff at Coogee Real Estate.


Thank You Asli

Dear James and Irene,


I hope that you are both well and life is returning to some normality in Sydney.


I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation for the tremendous work and dedicated service that Asli has provided over the past four months. Her attention to detail, consistent communication and measured advice has guided me through a most challenging time.


I have been most impressed by Asli's commitment when dealing with all my tenants and incredibly thankfully for her meticulous organisation. No doubt, everyone at CRE has been stretched throughout this COVID period, but Asli's calm nature and tireless work ethic have ensured that every problem was attended to and each matter was addressed without fuss or complication. 


With most of my properties being affected in some way by the current crisis over the last four months, Asli never failed to communicate with me on a daily basis. Often sending me emails well outside regular office hours. Whether it was organising tradesmen, holding private inspections, negotiating rental relief for distressed tenants or managing problematic tenants out of a property, Asli handled each situation with her typical calm approach and steadfast efficiency. This left me feeling very confident and reassured with every challenge that may have presented.


In closing, it is important that all staff are recognised for their good work, but in my view, Asli's commitment and dedication have been extraordinary and exceeded expectation. She has managed to secure good tenants going forward with minimal vacancy during the transition from one lease to the next. This leaves me most relieved and very happy!


All the very best and good luck for the remainder of 2020.


In appreciation,




A Man To Trust

Ben knows the business of real estate in Coogee like few others. He has a calm and friendly optimism, is genuinely interested in the needs of his clients and listens carefully. He is also flexible and ready to respond to changes and to answer queries promptly and thoroughly. He has the ability to take as well as give advice and I was pleasantly surprised to find such a trustworthy estate agent on whom I could depend.


Great Salesman

Ben Bartlett demonstrated knowledge of the market place and true professionalism in his sale to my wife. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to either potential sellers or purchasers of property. 


I highly recommend CRE for managing rentals and especially selling your house. They managed my rental for 5 yrs and also recently sold my house for me. I found them to be thoroughly knowledgeable, professional, efficient, and most important of high integrity. They were always a pleasure to work with. No mistake because all of these qualities are naturally embodied by James, the owner.
