David Watson

Sales Manager

“Throughout our dealings, I found David to be knowledgeable, professional, courteous and carefully considered in his advice. More importantly, I belive he operates with his client’s interersts always uppermost in his mind; a feature not common in his profession, where many agents will simply prioritise getting a result, as opposed to the optimum result.”

- Louis Carroll-

“Dear David, thank you for the outstanding job you executed so brilliantly. We are very grateful. The journey has been a wonderful experience, and the result just fantastic.”

- Glenn and Rebecca Lee-

“David, your detailed knowledge of the properties which have sold in the area, your logical advice on comparative property values, your regular reports (oral and written) on inspections and your uncanny analysis of buyer interest was most impressive.”

- Lewis and Rachelle Goldman-

“You exceeded our expectations in your tenacity, ability to attract and work buyers, read the real situations, deal with very difficult and unexpected challenges and finally close the deal at a price we had agreed. Having dealt with a number of realtors in the past, it our assessment that you are the best, most professional and effective in the business.”

-Hany and Jodie Fam-

“Your knowledge of the area and empathy with the seller and potential buyers is second to none. That coupled with the integrity you display, both with respect to the seller and buyer has ensured a successful and happy transaction, in our case, in what most describe as ‘challenging’ market conditions.”

-Peter Dexter-

“David, your market knowledge, network of potential buyers, cool head and sound advice kept us on track and provided the support we needed to keep up the momentum of the sale campaign. The final result is a testimony to your skill and ability.”

- Ian and Anne Burns-

"Thank you, David! As they say, ‘Nobody does it better’………"

- Frank and Amber Ellsworth -

There are consistent themes in the scores of recommendations David Watson has received over his 31 year career. Calm. Considered. Tenacious negotiator regardless of market conditions. Refreshing. Absolute integrity. Unmatched knowledge of the Northern Beaches market. The first and last principle of David’s governing philosophy is to operate with his client’s interests always uppermost in his mind, and everything else flows in the right direction.

A Licensed Real Estate Agent and Sales Manager for LJHooker’s Avalon office, David also has a reputation for breaking sales price records on some of the most exclusive properties on the peninsula, specialising in Avalon Beach, Clareville and Bilgola Beach. While many of his most celebrated sales have topped the $13M - $15M range, David also successfully negotiates on more affordable properties, particularly on behalf of his repeat clients and referral business.

Year on year, David Watson has been recognised as one of the top five salespeople in the entire LJHooker network of 730 offices, including the number one position in several years. After three decades, and with tremendous success through all sorts of market conditions, David is still doing precisely what he wants to be doing – it’s an approach to both life and business that has served him and his clients remarkably well.

"David is the ultimate professional in his business; he is thoughtful, genuine and conscientious. Not to forget his tenacity! He never gives up!"

John O'Neill AO.

"David, a job well done AGAIN!"

Terry & Melissa Willesee

"David, thank you so much for you help and Wisdom"

Stuart & Joanna Campbell (purchased and sold June 2014)

"David, on behalf of the 3 Trustees and the other beneficiaries, thank you for handling the sale of our property in the very professional manner in which you did".

Stephen Beaumont

David, just want to say thanks so much for everything you have done for the sale of my house. I have never had to do this before, and after a nervous start, you and Jo made the experience not daunting at all. I'm so happy with everything.... I feel you are a friend, and not a real estate agent. Kind regards and very much appreciated."

Margi Whiteman

"Dear David, This is to express our sincere thanks for all your efforts and true professionalism through what may have been one of your longer sale campaigns. The care and attention we received was exceptional along with your continuing support and advice. We are passionate about our real estate and we appreciated your belief in the quality of our home and the determination to find the 'right buyer' who would be as excited as we had been about owning 157. Joanna did an outstanding job of organising the media campaigns and was constantly looking for the best bang for our advertising buck. In real estate, presentation goes a long way and Joanna's flexibility and desire to help by collecting flowers, changing a light bulb or sweeping the terrace prior to inspection (when we could not be there) goes well beyond what a vendor can ever expect. David, your market knowledge, network of potential buyers, cool head and sound advice kept us on track and provided the support we needed to keep up the momentum of the sale campaign. The final result is a testimony to your skill and ability. Thank you once again and we wish you all the best for the future and we hope may our paths cross again in the future.

Ian & Anne Burns

"Dear David, Peter and I would like to thank you very much in the way you have conducted the sale of our home. Over the years you have kept us informed and gently lead us to an eventual sale in this very difficult market. Your knowledge of the waterfront properties in this area is second to none and a contributing factor to your success. The handling of our sale was very professional. Anyone who appoints you as their selling agent is in good hands".

Lilian & Peter Hansman

"I came to David Watson after sheer frustration with the local real estate market which is experiencing an unprecedented downturn. I had previously listed my home with 2 other high profile Avalon agents over a period of 6 months, leaving me floundering with feelings of ill will. David Watson, gave me ethical and intelligent marketing/sales strategy and support. David never leaves your side when negotiating carefully on your behalf. He is simply, the best."

David Cooper

"Just a short note to let you know we're sorry we missed you this afternoon but want to express our sincere thanks and appreciation! We would like to reiterate that it was a real pleasure working with you, and even though David Copper was your "paying" client, you responded to all of our queries and concerns promptly and sincerely, helping to make the sale process as seamless as possible. We hope to cross paths with you both during our comings and goings in our new community of Avalon/Clareville! All the best!"

Chuck & Julie

"Through our dealings I found David to be knowledgeable, professional, courteous and carefully considered in his advice. Most importantly I believe that he operates with his client’s interests always uppermost in his mind: a feature not common in his profession, where many agents will simply prioritize getting a result, as opposed to the optimum result"
