Mar 31, 2023 | by DiJones

What do you get if you mix two elite agents with an exceptional support team and a generous pinch each of energy, resilience, determination and exceptional communication skills?

The answer is simple. All the advantages of a highly effective and successful team whose expertise, experience and strategic thinking combine with operational efficiency to maximise every opportunity and achieve optimum results for their clients without fail.

Enter Team van Hamburg & Murphy, from DiJones Neutral Bay.

An observant wedding guest and a wife savant

With forty years’ combined experience selling property, Piers and Donovan have gained a privileged vantage point within the industry. They’ve successfully advanced their clients through the selling process in just about every type of market there is and have gained unparalleled insight and a wealth of relevant experience along the way.

Piers’s start in the industry came when he was 25 and randomly seated next to a real estate agent at a friend’s wedding. “We got on like a house on fire, and he told me that I’d make a great agent,” says Piers, “the rest is history.”

Donovan’s keen interest in property prompted his savvy wife to suggest a career move from recruitment to real estate. “Actually, she was sick of me taking her around to open homes for fun,” he laughs. “She figured that seeing I loved it so much, I should do it as a job.”  

Introduced by a mutual friend, Piers and Donovan quickly found they were well-aligned and forged a strong professional alliance that has proven so much greater than the sum of its parts. 

After several years working together, these two are totally in-sync with each other and fully aware that they are stronger together. They stand at the very vanguard of the industry and have helped countless clients advance their way through the complexities of buying and selling properties.

Rounded and grounded

Their long careers in real estate have furnished Piers and Donovan with exceptional insights into different market conditions, property cycles and real estate trends, rounding them as professionals and driving them to the very top of the property ladder.

Continued high performance can take its toll over time in any industry, but, as Piers and Donovan are quick to acknowledge, having the support of their families and fantastic team keeps them well-grounded and galvanised, ready to face the challenges of a changing market and maintain their track record for excellence.

At heart, Piers and Donovan are a couple of down-to-earth, approachable guys who love (and excel at) selling property. They understand, as Donovan notes, that “if we look after our health, stay in touch with who we are, and have a good family life, then we can tackle whatever comes pretty easily.”

Energy and commitment

Piers agrees that mental and physical fitness are essential for a long and successful career. “Longevity in real estate can be a real challenge,” he says. “It takes a lot of energy and strong commitment to stay consistent and consistently get great results.”

And Piers and Donovan have both energy and commitment in spades. Whether paddling out through the heads on a (bright blue) surf ski in the early morning, racing across town at nine o’clock on a Friday night to close the deal for a client, ferrying kids to soccer, or digging deep to find the best opportunities for their clients, this dynamic duo give their unflagging all, achieving amazing results time and again.

A rock and an exceptional experience

Piers and Donovan understand that selling your property can be an overwhelming experience and strive to take all the stress out of the process for their clients. With the support of their team, they are able to dedicate more time and resources to guiding clients through a sale and are always on hand to assuage any doubts or offer advice as needed.

“Sometimes, people need a really good agent to have a plan and be their rock, taking care of everything and getting the results without creating stress,” says Piers, “we listen to them and help them navigate what is a pretty pivotal moment in their lives.”

There is no question that it’s essential to have an effective, well-aligned team on your side when it comes to selling your home, especially in a challenging market.

At DiJones Mosman, everyone on the team are completely in sync, and everyone knows exactly where their piece of the puzzle goes when it comes to giving clients an exceptional experience. Each member of the team brings something to the table to provide customers with a full range of expertise, insight and skills, ensuring the very best results with the least amount of worry and stress for their clients.

The long and the short of it

If a good agent can add so much value to a property transaction, imagine what two can do, especially with the support of a crack team and as much experience as Piers and Donovan have in the industry.

Over the years, they have helped countless clients realise their property goals, building long-term connections and dedicating their extraordinary energy, resilience, determination and communicative skills to achieving phenomenal successes time and again.
