    Shiv Nair

    Licensed Real Estate Agent - Accredited Auctioneer

    In real estate circles, Shiv Nair was already a local legend before he joined Harcourts Hills Living, setting the local record for the price of a single-level home, and achieving one of the highest overall prices Glenwood had ever seen. But even more importantly, Shiv has a host of happy, satisfied clients. Testament to this is the fact that he was awarded Glenwood’s No: 1 agent of the year in the Rate My Agent 2017 Agent of the Year awards. These awards are valued because they are judged by the public via customer reviews and feedback. The reason for Shiv’s popularity? Success at achieving life-changing results for his clients; fantastic customer focus; persistent, hard work on behalf of his vendors, buyers and investors. The local property market, and all aspects of the local area including its people, are a preoccupation for this local boy who was educated at Glenwood High and attended UWS. “Shiv is an exciting addition to the office. He ticks all Harcourts Hills Living’s boxes: vibrancy, enthusiasm, skill, a pleasant and caring nature, a determined attitude, a desire to get the best result for his people, and the sort of experience and knowledge that puts clients at ease in the knowledge that their most important asset is in the best possible hands.”
