About Us

Sadil Quinlan Properties have been an integral part of the Canberra region for over 5 decades.

In 1969, Nick Sadil , the highest selling real estate agent in Canberra, formed a partnership with high profile businessman Laurie Quinlan to launch Sadil Quinlan & Associates.

Sadil Quinlan & Associates opened its doors on London Circuit in early 1970 and quickly established itself as a Canberra Real Estate icon by introducing innovative marketing and a fresh approach to the traditional real estate agency practices of the time.

Canberra was experiencing an unprecedented population growth and the town was transforming into a city.

In 1972 the two partners decided to go their separate ways and Nick Sadil took 100% control of the company.

Sadil Quinlan “For Sale ” and ” For Lease” signs were popping up like mushrooms as quickly as the developers established the new satellite cities of Woden, Weston Creek and Belconnen. Tuggeranong Valley was still just a twinkle in the eye of the planners and Gungahlin just a pipe dream that many believed would never happen.

Many thousands of Canberrans achieved the “Australian Dream” and bought or rented their first home through Sadil Quinlan in those years.

Nick’s sons Greg, Marc and Adam joined the family company in the late seventies and became directors in 1984.

Nick Sadil passed way in 1999 after a distinguished career unsurpassed by any other agent in the ACT.

Some of his many achievements were selling the largest number of properties by an agent in a single year, the sales and rentals of many of Canberra’s embassies and diplomatic residences, the first million dollar residential sale, the sale of most of Canberra’s hotels and thousands of happy home buyers and sellers, throughout the region.

The most appropriate way of summing up our philosophy is a quote from Mr Nick Sadil:

“Real Estate is a people business. It’s not about houses or commissions.
Look after people first and foremost and the fees will look after themselves.”

This has been adopted by our management and in turn by our staff. It will continue to be the platform of success for our company.

A big thankyou to the staff at Sadil Quinlan for managing my home during my posting. Everything you promised you delivered. The service was great, the tenant was excellent and I will refer you to my friends in future.

After two bad experiences with agents it was refreshing to find Sadil Quinlan to look after my two investment properties. The staff has always been courteous and professional.

I am happy to recommend Sadil Quinlan as property managers, they have looked after my townhouse for 5 years after buying it through them. This is my first investment and I’m happy the way it has been managed.
Sonya, Nicholls

Thank you for the professional and diligent manner in which you organised repairs to my property after the recent storms. It must have been a busy time for you. Keep up the good work!
Doris, Isaacs

I can highly recommend your company as property managers. Your advice has been helpful and we have had the same tenants for over 3 years. We wouldn’t consider any other agency.
