Steve and Lou – Pennington

We previously dealt with Nick when we were looking to purchase a property and when the time came we wanted him to sell ours.
The service, communication and courtesy of everyone at Lakes and Portside was exceptional.
We could not have asked for any more of Nick. It was a great experience and we would not use anyone else.

We chose Nick as our agent because he was a genuine guy, not pushy and we liked his manner.
The service we got from Lakes and Portside was excellent, our calls were attended to quickly and communication was always regular.
The staff were always courteous and we would not hesitate to recommend Nick and Lakes and Portside to family and friends.

Kevin and Linda – Henley Beach

I first heard of Lakes and Portside Real Estate when I purchased my property in West Lakes.
I then went on to sell an investment property that I owned through them.
The staff were all very polite and helpful and Nick is a very friendly guy who kept me informed of proceedings.

Mary – Largs North

Nick was extremely helpful, beyond expectation on occasion.
Made things far easier than I thought they would be.
Where required, liaised with other parties involved directly.
I have no hesitation in recommending Nick to others.


We chose Lakes and Portside Real Estate upon a recommendation when we decided to sell our family home. Our children were the fourth generation to occupy the home which had not been sold since it was purchased by my grandparents at the end of WW1. As such, the house was truly our treasured home and this was a big step for us.
Lakes and Portside found buyers who wanted to make our character villa their home and plan to further renovate the home to their needs, rather than, demolish or subdivide the property as we feared may happen.
The staff of Lakes and Portside were always punctual, professional, and as they promised "kept us in the loop" at all times. Nick Tuck was our main point of contact. We found Nick to be honest and approachable. We were easily able to confide in him during times of concern, and to seek honest advice, or clarification when we were in need. He tailored a marketing plan which reflected our wishes and brought to fruition a great result.
We have already recommended Lakes and Portside to our friends and associates and will continue to do so in the future.

Adele and Jeff

The team at Lakes and Portside Real Estate made the process of selling our house very easy. They were sensitive to the situation and were genuine in their approach. I would be happy to recommend them to family and friends looking at selling their property. Thank you again for your assistance with everything (and the chocolates and bubbles!)


Raylene and I would like to express our sincere appreciation for your effort in selling our unit.

Again, with sincere thanks, Darrell and Raylene.

The sale of my property at Cheltenham, was conducted in my role as Executor of the Estate of my late wife.I was definitely not looking forward to this task, particularly also, as I had preconceived ideasof the way Real Estate agents, in general, conduct business. I was introduced to Greg Walkington by a mutual friend, and I must say right from the outset it was a pleasurable experience with a positive outcome. As the property was circa 1925, therewas some maintanance required. Gregs advice onwhat should be done prior to sale and what would not result in a higher price was very practicable. He suggessted that a building inspection be done, to show that due diligence had been done on the property for potential buyers. After the property went on the market there was good interest, particularly in light of the current property market. The end result was that the property sold approximately one month after being offered for sale. Even more importantly, the property sold for the agreed advertised price. Gregs professional advise, personality, excellent communications and competitive commission could not be faulted. The staff members of Lakes and Portside Real Estate also provided the same professional, efficient and pleasant service. Overall, the sale experience was very pleasing with an excellent outcome. I would absolutely have no hesitation in recommending Lakes and Portside Real Estate (Greg) to potential buyers and sellers. Thank you Greg, and good luck in the future.
