Sally Gillman is the owner of Shields Gillman Real Estate.
A Forest resident for almost two decades, Sally enjoys her involvement in the community and has a passion for the area, evidenced by the agencies’ Platinum sponsorship of the Forest Rugby team.
It was this passion that prompted her in 2014 to move her highly successful Eastern Suburbs agency of 20 years to Forestville and bring her considerable property expertise with her.
As a family owned business you can be assured that you’re always dealing with the business owner, you’re treated as a valuable client and receive the personal and professional service that we’re renowned for.
Sally commenced her real estate career in 1989 working as a Commerical Property Manager and moved into Residential Real Estate shortly after, responsible for both sales and property management. When the agency she was working for closed in 1995, Sally decided to open her own business ‘Sally-a.Shields Real Estate’.
Noting that most real estate agencies at the time were sales focused, and identifying a gap in the market, Sally decided her agency would focus on and specialise in Property Management. Given Sally’s honest and fresh approach, however, it wasn’t long before clients were asking Sally to provide a sales service for them.
Never actively hunting for listings, the sales side of the business grew until it was time to increase staff numbers. Sally’s husband, Peter Gillman, was working as a Sales Manager for another real estate agency and joined Sally to head up the sales division and Shields Gillman Real Estate was established.
