About Us

Established in 2006 Cocks Auld Real estate is a medium sized boutique agency specializing in the sale of all styles of residential property from cottages & units right through to larger homes in the top end of the market.

Our office is located at 139 King William Road Unley right in the heart of the hustle & bustle of vibrant Hyde Park shopping & café precinct.

Our aim is to provide a very much hands-on and personalised premium level of service to our clients.

With our motto ‘experience that matters’ we believe our vast experience
in the real estate industry does matter.

It is said that ‘practice makes perfect’. We are far from perfect, however, we are always learning and thinking of new ideas and systems to make the sale of real estate easier and more effective for our clients.

We believe our vast experience and knowledge does give us the ‘edge’ when it comes to auctioneering, marketing, and people skills in negotiating.



Every home is as individual as the people who own them, and every home owner has different needs when it comes to selling.

We at Cocks Auld Real Estate listen to your needs and work with you in planning the right marketing strategy to achieve the best result in the sale of your home.

There are 7 different methods to a successful sale:

• Data-base networking
• Discreet sale
• Private treaty
• Price by negotiation
• Expression of interest
• Public auction
• Public tender

Let us discuss the benefits of each method and determine with you, our client, what best suits you.


If Auction is the preferred method of sale we at Cocks Auld Real Estate offer you the choice of 2 highly experienced auctioneers. We invite you to attend one of our auctions and judge for yourself.

Preparing your home for sale
Prior to your property going on the market, we can provide you with a free consultation from our experienced home presenter. In addition, we will go through the home with you and identify a ‘hit list’ of work requiring attention prior to marketing. We have an excellent team of trades-people which we will co-ordinate quickly and efficiently.

We offer our services as a purchasing agent. We will inspect the property and advise you on price, arrange a building inspection on your behalf and negotiate with the selling agent. We can also bid at the auction on your behalf.

Residential Property Management
At Cocks Auld Real Estate the management of rental property is not merely the collection of rent. It is the provision of a personalised service to owners and tenants. We believe that communicating with clients is a prerequisite to ensure their needs are met.
