Gerard has been a franchisee of our Raine & Horne network as the Director of Raine & Horne City Living located at Pyrmont from December 2002 until April 2014. An enthusiastic agent with clear business goals and an in depth understanding of agency practice. I am happy to recommend Gerard as the broker of choice if you are ready to discuss the sale of your agency practice.
I have known Gerard Payne both professionally and personally for over 15 years and in that time he has shown a direct, honest and professional manner in all of his dealings. His vast and extensive knowledge in all facets of the Real Estate industry with over 35 years of experience is unquestionable.
I have no hesitation and would highly recommend Gerard’s services if you are looking for a skilled negotiator to maximise the sale of your Rent Roll.
I am more than happy to discuss in further detail Gerard’s extensive business acumen.
I have known Gerard Payne on a business & personal level for over 20 years. During this time he has run very successful real estate businesses.
His knowledge of a real estate business is 2nd to none. I have always found him to be extremely trustworthy, passionate & totally dedicated to his business & its clientele.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him to any prospective clients.
It is with pleasure that I have the opportunity to provide this reference for Gerard Payne who I have known for 30 years.
On a professional business level I have witnessed Gerard grow from a small family real estate business in Shell harbour to a large, vibrant and very successful real estate business in Pyrmont Sydney. This business growth is a direct result of Gerard’s drive, passion and commitment to provide clients with the best possible service and management practises in the industry.
With the help of Gerard’s knowledge, experience and skills he has brought, sold and managed several properties for us and all have been successful investments.
On a more personal note I have found Gerard to be conscientious, reliable and hard working. His open honesty creates a quick sense of trust, ease of communication and approachability. Gerard carries these personal attributes into the wider community giving his time freely supporting various organisations and charity events.
In all of Gerard’s endeavours he has had a strong and beneficial impact which is a result of the courage, honesty, character and commitment that will never leave him.
Gerard Payne has done work for me since 1985. He has managed my commercial and residential properties.
His strengths as a property manager include:
1) He is meticulous in his selection of tenants!
2) He is thorough in ensuring the tenants always pay their rent on time
3) He always knows what is going on with the property and has kept me informed at all times.
In Property Sales:
1) Gerard is excellent in qualifying people, making sure they are genuine buyers and not wasting
2) He works hard for the vendor in getting a result and would work any hours to achieve a good
outcome. I have no hesitation in recommending Gerard in any real estate role. As a broker Gerard’s broad
range of knowledge in real estate gives him the edge and he works astutely in order to overcome
any challenge. His knowledge and abilities are second to none.
I worked with Gerard for a period of just over two years, his ability to identify systems that were working or unworking in business was the best I’ve seen, he had an uncanny way of objectively looking at a problem and determining the solution within minutes to ensure that it would not occur again. As a business owner myself now, I find that skill now priceless after learning it from Gerard.
Gerard was always direct in his communication and there was never any doubt of what his expectations were, he is transparent which is refreshing in dealings and ensures the job gets done quickly and seamlessly.
I’ve had property and finance dealings with Gerard Payne for more than 15 years now, and nobody knows more about the industry than this man. His life-long experience in property has made him the “go to guy” when it comes to Real Estate. Opinions are cheap and everybody has one, but when Gerard talks about property, his opinion is based on hours of research and fact-finding, to ensure that his opinion is one that can be relied upon.
There are only a handful of industry stalwarts that you can truly rely on…Gerard is one of them.
I have had the pleasure of doing business with Gerard Payne for the past six years and during that time I have found him to be energetic, ethical and proactive in his dealings with myself and my clients. I have no hesitation in recommending Gerard’s services to my clients.
I have previously been under the employment of Gerard Payne as Leasing Executive, Property Manager & Sales Consultant at Raine & Horne City Living for 5 years. And having also known Gerard for 14 years in a professional manner, I provide this testimonial.
The skill-set and knowledge I experienced & observed under the guidance of Gerard has been an invaluable commodity to my professional development in real estate, and in the way I have established and operate my own successful agency.
It gives me great pleasure to recommend Gerard’s professional services in Real Estate and welcome your call or e-mail should you like to discuss any of his attributes in further detail.
It is with my pleasure that we write this testimonial for Gerard Payne who has been known to us both personally and on a business level for over thirty years.
During this time Gerard has always displayed a high level of loyalty, efficiency and business ethic.

His eye for detail, knowledge of the property industry, high professionalism and prompt follow up puts him in what one would call ‘Elite’ standing.
