Meet the Team
Nick Quilkey began his career in residential sales after moving to the Eastern Suburbs from Northern NSW and has worked tirelessly to establish himself as an agent of the highest caliber. Having personally worked on over 320 sales worth in excess of $430,000,000 Nick has remarkably managed to maintain a personal auction clearance rate above 95% with an average days on market of just 19 days.
Nick has a track record of success and has broken numerous price records including the highest sale price ever achieved for a house in the 2022 postcode (Queens Park and Bondi Junction) with an off-market sale at 13 Ashton Street, Queens Park in April 2017. He also set the record for the highest price achieved for an attached home in the 2022 postcode with a pre-auction sale at 43 Ashton Street, Queens Park in March 2018. Nick prides himself on superior negotiation skills achieved through working closely with buyers and sellers and being empathetic to their wants and needs.
Placing importance on honesty and integrity has seen Nick build an extensive database of buyers and sellers who work with him time and time again. More than 70% of Nick's business is from repeat clients and referrals. Nick believes there is so much more to selling property than the transaction - "it's about building lasting relationships with people, becoming a trusted advisor rather than a real estate agent."
"Nick recently handled the sale of our house in Queens Park. I found Nick extremely easy to deal with, efficient and professional. Nick was always available to help or answer questions, he was proactive and thoughtful. I think he handled the negotiations in a fair and professional manner. I would happily recommend him to others" Jenny - Queens Park
"We bought our new home via Nick in April 2017. It was an off market purchase and he was very helpful, responsive and communicative through every step of the process. He conducted the sale via an email auction of sorts, with all interested parties bidding in writing and the paper trail was available for us to see after the sale. Initially this process seemed foreign to me, but Nick answered all our questions and was so communicative and open that we felt really comfortable with this system of sale in the end. Thanks to Nick, Alex and the PPDRE team for helping us find our new home." Allie – Queens Park
"Imagine an agent who was a human being, who had real empathy, who sought to understand your needs as a buyer, didn't spruik any property that came their way but only showed properties that were suitable. Then imagine an agent who was patient, amiable, pleasant to deal with, practical, concerned for your welfare, showed genuine concern, didn't overpromise just to line their own pockets. This is Nick Quilkey. If you want to deal with someone who is a real down to earth person with great market knowledge and wants to build a very good reputation over a long period of time in the Eastern Suburbs, I recommend Nick. He really was brilliant." Stephen - Queens Park
"I like many other Purchasers had become disillusioned with the existing property market. The marketplace was tough- consistent references to a property bubble where demand was high and inventory low. To make matters worse were the handful of Real Estate Agents giving all Agents a bad reputation. THEN came along - Nick. I saw the property on Saturday and had a brief and frank discussion with him during the inspection. I requested a copy of the contract be sent by Monday morning only to have exchange occur that evening. Nick, unlike many other Agents, took the no nonsense approach. He was honest, upfront and direct which I valued and appreciated. There were no games. He was there to secure the best outcome for the Vendor whilst still maintaining a degree of neutrality in meeting the Purchasers needs. He was knowledgeable, informative and his communication was more than timely - it was instant. Nick was a firm negotiator but equally fair in his approach which gained my respect. He was there and ready to answer all questions to secure the sale and furthermore made himself and his services readily available to facilitate and coordinate access to the property, building inspections, bank valuations etc. post exchange whilst still being mindful of causing as little disruption to the Vendor as possible which again, gained my respect and would have me retain him as my own Agent when the time comes to sell. Nick has established my faith in Real Estate Agents, something I never thought I would say. He is an exemplary example of what to expect out of an Agent and is a credit to his profession. I couldn’t recommend him more highly enough. Job well done!" Vanessa – Queens Park
