Shields Gillman Real Estate based at Suite 4, 61 Darley Street Forestville and service Killarney Heights, Frenchs Forest, Davidson, Belrose and surrounding suburbs.

With over 50 years of collective real estate experience Sally Shields and Peter Gillman are both highly respected real estate agents known for their high level of professionalism with a focus on customer service and on getting the best result for buyers, sellers and landlords.

However even with the high standard of rental / lease applicants the Shields Gillman team maintain their stringent screening checks for each and every prospective tenant regardless of their financial, social or business standing. These checks include:

  • Checking tenancy databases to ensure that a prospective tenant does not have negative feedback registered from another agent.
  • Obtain original pay-slips or salary payment advices and check current employment to ensure affordability of the rent.
  • Collect and verify 100 point ID documents.
  • Check previous rental references.
  • Conduct a personal inspection of the proposed rental property.
  • Conduct a personal interview with the prospective tenant.

Although the above checks may seem like a logical progression when dealing with a new tenancy application statistics tell us that fewer than 25% of managing agents enforce them as a matter of course.

Experience tells us that by putting in the required time and effort into confirming the bona fides of each and every rental application we drastically reduce the chances of selecting a bad or inappropriate tenant. This is just one of the attributes which distinguishes us from our competitors.
