Stuart Gifford

Property Consultant 


Stuart entered the real estate industry at the age of 20 and has experienced the highs and lows of the property market in both sales and property management.

The two things Stuart enjoys the most about real estate is that every day is different and the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life. He believes one of the fundamentals which have made him successful is regular communication with his clients.

Continuing education and always looking for new and innovative ways to promote property set Stuart apart from competitors in the Hobart marketplace.

When not out selling, Stuart enjoys playing soccer for Barnstoneworth United and spending time with his wife Lisa and daughter Isabella.
  • Stuart provided an outstanding service from our first meeting until after the house was sold. His knowledge of the area was a significant bonus and his unpretentious and natural manner instilled confidence and trust. We, as the vendors, were interstate or overseas for much of the time the house was on the market hence more fell to Stuart than may usually be the case. He communicated diligently at all times and was impeccable in attention to detail. I unreservedly recommend him to all.

    Lisa – Glenorchy

  • I found Stuart extremely pleasant to deal with and well informed on the areas sale history and prospective selling strategies with respect to my property. I found his no nonsense explanations and down-to-earth attitude to be refreshing. He did his job and did it well, I will use him again.

  • Stuart’s knowledge of the local real estate market is exceptional. He is timely in advice and will go above and beyond in the service he provides. Communication is excellent.

    Seller – Glenorchy

    Buyer – Glenorchy

  • My wife Linda and I were truly amazed at the speed of which Stuart marketed our home which sold within a couple of days. We were impressed by his professional approach….He’d done all the preparatory ‘homework’ regarding the marketing of our home before he arrived. We would recommend Ripple to any prospective seller, wishing to engage an ethical company, who had a customised commission and optional selling aids.

    Linda – Seller

  • My wife and I have purchased 3 houses and sold another house using Stuart’s services. We have found him to be expert in his advice, completely honest and a pleasure to deal with. Stuart’s approach is to listen and find you exactly what you are looking for – not wasting time on unsuitable properties. When selling, Stuart’s knowledge of the market is exceptional. His advice was very accurate in relation to how the market would react to our property, including both the price range and level of interest. We have purchased and sold many properties over the years with a range of different agents and I can confidently state that Stuart has been the best by far. We have no reservation in recommending Stuart to act as either your buying or selling agent.

  • I am pleased to provide a testimonial for Stuart Gifford. His strong business approach to achieving the best outcome, keeping me fully informed of all communications with various parties and on occasions going above and beyond his duties to progress forward were greatly appreciated. A frustrating situation outside of our control delayed the process, but Stuart was continually active in driving the negotiations to a successful and timely conclusion. I found Stuart to be a solid, consistent and enthusiastic worker with a strong work ethos and desire to achieve positive outcomes for his clients. I have no hesitation in recommending Stuart to any vendor who wishes their property sale to be in safe hands and also be assured of an Agent who is working hard to achieve the best result for them.

    Richard – Sandy Bay

  • It was a pleasure to work with Stuart Gifford from Ripple when selling our home. From his initial appraisal and advice about a marketing strategy, through to receiving a fair offer, Stuart kept us informed and feeling positive about our prospects at what is a stressful time. In particular, I’d also commend Stuart for his professionalism and updates about what was happening with movements and sales in the area. I would happily recommend Stuart and Ripple to friends and people who are considering selling.

    Vern – Moonah

  • Choosing to use Stuart Gifford from Ripple Realty was the right choice for us. He approached the sale of our house in a positive way, focusing on the good things it had to offer. Stuart provided a current market appraisal, however, this is where he showed that Ripple and his own attitude was very different from those we received from other Agents. He focused on the best way to present and market the property, not fancy advertising packages and high fees supported by a REIT scale developed by a body that represents the real estate institution rather than its consumers. If you want great service at a fair price then why wouldn’t you use Stuart Gifford and Ripple and keep some of your hard earned money. We highly recommend Stuart and Ripple when selling your home.

  • It was our pleasure to have Ripple sell our mother’s house at Moonah. From the start of the process we found Stuart Gifford was a very friendly and most helpful sales consultant with good personality and great attitude. We were very impressed with the work Stuart and Ripple provided, their constant and valuable phone calls and emails to us notifying of all prospective buyers and their feedback was appreciated greatly. We were very impressed to receive a great offer through negotiations in a very short time frame. Stuart had buyers wanting the property, he managed to achieve the best offer for us and we were grateful as it was way above our expectations. All in all the process was very smooth and professionally achieved. All the best to Ripple and your team, we would certainly use the business in future.

  • Selling up and moving interstate was a very stressful experience. Stuart was genuine, helpful and enthusiastic throughout the entire process and he was always contactable during the sale and gave helpful advice for presentation of the property. We would be happy to recommend his services to others.
