Director & Licensee in Charge LREA
David Hill, who joined Raine & Horne in 2002, is the holder of many price records in the area and has been consistently ranked in the top 1% of the Raine & Horne network. Setting him apart from other agents on the Lower North Shore are his superior negotiation skills, which he works tirelessly on by constant education to achieve record prices for his clients.
After graduating from Sydney University with a Bachelor of Economics, David was a trader on the floor of the Sydney Futures Exchange from 1993 to 2002. Because he is passionate about working with people, he left the futures market when the trading floor was closed and traders became deskbound. Real estate sales was a natural career progression, because it gives David the opportunity to build genuine relationships and give clients a truly personable experience during the sale of their property.
“My philosophy is that the real estate industry is not about property, it’s about people,” says David. “Too many agents forget that for most people, buying and selling property can be stressful because it’s not something they do every day.” David believes it is his job—and the job of those he leads at Raine & Horne HM Group—to take as much of the stress out of the process as possible. He does this by vowing to listen more and maintain greater communication with vendors and buyers.
His attention to detail and commitment to the highest ethical standards also give his clients great peace of mind.
A resident of Wollstonecraft, David has always lived on the Lower North Shore and knows the individual suburb attributes like the back of his hand, which gives him a distinct advantage when selling property. “For any property, I know all the recent comparable sales, the nearby parks, how many minutes it is to the train station, where the closest café is, where the closest schools are,” says David.
A recognised sales leader on the Lower North Shore, his success rate averages 95%, selling 1000+ properties to date with a combined value of $1.2 billion.
Awards and recognition
Over the 16 past years, David has held prestigious titles within the Raine & Horne network including number 1 salesperson in the state and numerous times in the top 10. He has been inducted into the Raine & Horne Chairman’s Club every year since 2004. This prestigious club is restricted to the top 1% of salespeople
in the Raine & Horne network.
David believes that it is his enthusiasm, can do attitude and passion for his job, coupled with innovative processes that attracts more buyers. His longevity and adaptability in a constantly changing market is what sets him apart over agents who have only been in the market for 2-5 years.
“David impressed me with his positive attitude, frankness and professionalism. David displayed a real enthusiasm for the apartment’s features and confidence in achieving a favourable result in the prevailing uncertain market conditions. I would recommend any potential seller or buyer to use your services after my experience.”
Mr Paul Denmeade – 268 High Street, Chatswood
“ Thank you for making the sale of our property such an easy and head ache free process. David, from the outset when we first met, you made us feel comfortable and at ease with your experience not only with sales but knowledge of the Crows Nest real estate market, not to mention your positive attitude and approachable down to earth character! We were faced with some challenges including the bush fires and heat waves during the open homes, not to mention a fallen tree on the building! You always found a way to keep things positive and moving forward which gave us reassurance. You were also realistic about our reserve price and we believe did a great job to get two buyers to the auction and a final sale. The staging company did a great job as did the conveyancers, all recommended by you and both made the process seamless. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone looking for an agent to buy, sell or manage a property. Thanks again David, we couldn’t be happier with our result and look forward to working with you again in the future, and Jeanette and I wish you, your family and all the R&H HM Group Team a safe and healthy future. ”
