RE: 152 Military Rd, Neutral Bay

Just a quick note to let you know how impressive the Auction of the above commercial property was!

As mentioned, the St Vincent de Paul Society NSW has been left a Bequest in the Estate of Harold Allan Small. Because of Allan’s concern for the disadvantaged and homeless, the Society’s proceeds from this sale will be used towards supporting our marginalised clients who are experiencing homelessness and need. The benefit from Allan’s Bequest will change many lives for the better.

Because of this interest, and the future benefit to many others, it was such a great pleasure to see the Auction brilliantly undertaken and conducted. At least eight interested parties very actively bid well past expectations, despite the massive amount of updating and expenditure that the building required.

Congratulations for such a fantastic result! The extra proceeds, the Society will now be able to pass on to our clients as a result of this auction, is attributable to your expertise and professionalism in the marketing of this property.

With sincere thanks and very best wishes,

Heather Roberts, Bequest Coordinator, St Vincent de Paul

I would like to thank you for your work in the sale of my office strata in Neutral Bay along with the purchase of my new office premises.Throughout our dealings I worked with you as a buyer and a vendor and when we were the vendors. Due to your extensive database of Commercial Office Buyers, you were able to achieve a great sales price:

- Within 2 days of listing the premises

- Without the cost of a marketing campaign

- In an extremely tough commercial strata market

I was also pleased with the fact that;

- You did not try and buy the listing, but provided a realistic appraisal and opinion of the market

- As a back up, you had a Professional Marketing Campaign in place which was ready to utilise the most    effective marketing materials for commercial strata offices       

- Final the negotiation and communication skills on show when you were selling our old office and assisting us in the purchase of our new office

Thank you again for your help and we hope to work together again in the future.

Best Wishes

Paul Madden - Argyle Property Group

I just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work in securing purchases for my client in what is a difficult market. At our first meeting I was grateful for the confidence you provided, with your intimate knowledge of the Neutral Bay market and willingness to provide reccommendations, rather than simply options. Your pricing was comparable to others I had recieved, however your energy and eagerness to answer my questions won me over.

The marketing campaign was professional and made the most of the market before the Christmas break. Your tenacity in the New Year, following up leads and showing around potential purchasers achieved the desired result.

Should I need the services of an agent in the Neutral Bay area in the future, I will happily recommend your services.

Yours Sincerely

Matthew Pedrazzini - Property Beyond Associate

In my capacity as a purchaser, developer and in leasing my commercial premises, I have known Rick Doran for over 20 years and his son, Tom for 5 years. In that time they have advised me on all aspects of my real estate business, and commercial property in particular, and have become valued and good friends. Their outstanding and impressive knowledge and expertise in commercial real estate sets them apart, and it is not surprising that their services are sought by leading developers, architects and builders. They are both men of the highest integrity with a keen sense of duty, responsibility, and reliability. Their positive energetic style has made them an integral and irreplaceable part of my business.


John Ambler F.R.A.I.A - Architect

We would like to thank you for your good humour and patience in selling our commercial premises. You and your team never failed to be positive in your approach in achieving a successful outcome. We would have no hesitation in recommending Doran Commercial to future clients.


Reuben Lane - Director, Comprehensive Urban Group Pty Ltd

I have used R T Doran Commercial as a leasing agent and have found them to be efficient, prompt and courteous. When searching for property their extensive knowledge of the area was very helpful.


Dr Mark Andrew Shillito - Consultant Psychiatrist & Psychotherapist

From day one, you were able to deliver a cost effective yet successful marketing strategy which was crucial in minimising vacancy. At all stages, I was kept fully informed and up to date with the progress of the campaign.


Michael Reid - Director, Capitaland Australia

My expectations were exceeded with the sale price which can be directly attributed to both Tom and R.T. Doran’s extensive knowledge and contacts in the commercial real estate market.

Tony Blackwood - Director, Blackwood Seddon Architects

Myself a real estate agent would recommend R.T. Doran Commercial for their loyalty, honesty and their ability to keep the vendor informed especially with the complicated auction process.


Peter Kerras - Associate Director, Colliers International

Throughout the process I was kept fully informed both by phone and written reports. The property was sold for Seventy Five thousand Dollars above my reserve price, above your estimate of market price and certainly above my expectations.

Kind Regards

David Mackay - Principal, LJ Hooker Avalon
