Lead Agent, Team Ben Smithha

Darren Cosgrove is the most professional Real Estate agent I have ever met. Darren came highly recommended by a friend after a successful home sale and I will be forever grateful I chose him to sell my very special ‘unicorn’ apartment in Kangaroo Point. Darren was a pleasure to do business with and proved many times during the whole selling process that he is a man of his word with exceptional communication skills (to all parties involved) with a wealth of knowledge on current markets trends and all things Real Estate. Nothing was too much effort for Darren to reach our common goal of a positive home sale and I thank him wholeheartedly for achieving that.

- Vendor, Kangaroo Point

Darren explained at all stages the procedures for preparing the property for photos and for the open days. He was always available to provide advice and contacted us regularly to ensure that we felt comfortable, organised and confident. Many thanks Darren.

- Buyer, Wishart

The most reliable agent! Thank you Darren for your consistent effort seeing through the sales of my project. Other agents came and went, you stayed around and saw the project to the end.


- Vendor, Yeronga

Darren is an extremely knowledgeable agent who was supportive and sensible every step of the way. He offered great advice, was reliable, went over and above to market snd promote our property and kept us informed. A quintessentially kind man, he spent time getting to know us and did all he could to get us a great price. I would highly recommend him. Five Stars- A+++

- Vendor, Yeronga

From the outset, Darren was upfront and very helpful. Throughout the process of selling our house to purchasing our unit, we found Darren to be approachable, supportive and knowledgeable about most aspects of the real estate market. At first, we believed the suggested price for the sale to be exaggerated, as has happened on previous occasions with other Real Estate Agents. However we soon found that Darren's estimation was not far from what we ended up with. WE would definitely reccommend Darren to anyone looking for an agent who calls it as it is.

- Vendor, Seven Hills

My partner and I recently purchased through Darren and had a terrific experience start to finish. We found Darren to be personable, professional and prompt, in addition to this Darren displayed exceptional knowledge of Annerley and surrounds. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Darren to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Annerley, Yeronga or Fairfield area.


- Buyer, Annerley

Darren kept in touch and informed us all the time. Our sale was very stressful because the suburb was going through a lean time sales wise. It took 18 months to sell our property but Darren never gave up. He worked so hard the whole time. His knowledge and work ethic is above and beyond.

- Vendor, Chermside

Darren is a Sales agent providing top shelf experience and professionalism for sellers and buyers! Having dealt with a lot of real estate sales people in the past, Darren ranks up top of the list for his professionalism, experience, effort and attention to detail. H e coordinated the steps for our recent sale to run smoothly from start to finish - respectfully, with no fuss, no pressure and no empty promises.
