Who Are We?

Peter and Sally Gillman are the owners of Shields Gillman Real Estate.

Forest residents for almost two decades, Peter and Sally enjoy their involvement in the community and have a passion for the area, evidenced by the agencies’ Platinum sponsorship of the Forest Rugby team.

It was this passion that prompted them in 2014 to move their highly successful Eastern Suburbs agency of 20 years to Forestville and bring their considerable property expertise with them.

As a family owned business you can be assured that you’re always dealing with the business owners, you’ll be 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.




Peter began working in real estate in 1983. Honing his craft under the watchful eye of one of Australia’s leading real estate trainers, Robert Bevan, who also happened to be his boss, was a stroke of luck. Peter’s sales and marketing skills are unrivalled and it would be hard to find another local agent that can match the list of the sales that he has successfully negotiated, and the records that he has broken over the 30 plus years of his real estate career.

You can talk with Peter or Sally anytime, without frustrating messages being left with reception and ignored. It’s about communication and it’s this commitment that gets results when it comes to real estate.

Combining their wealth of experience and proven track record with local knowledge, Shields Gillman Real Estate can produce tailored personalised solutions for sales, auctions, rentals and property management, all aimed at delivering the best results for you.
