Sales Manager, Syd Sherrin comes from the famous Sherrin football family, with affiliations at the Collingwood Football Club. Commencing with W. B. Simpson & Son in 1989, he quickly achieved a following from both vendors and purchasers for the superior level of service he renders. Nothing is too much trouble for Syd and he will assist vendors in preparing their properties for the sale meticulously, attending to even the smallest detail. Similarly he has been able to assist with specialist financial consultants who help with that difficult sale.

Syd's devotion to service has endeared him to many vendors and buyers and assisted him in achieveing consistently higher prices for his clients.

Syd's dedication, hard work and cheery disposition coupled with an ability to listen to his clients' needs, to provide sound professional advice and extraordinary negotiation skills are the hallmarks to Syd's success. He combines his vast knowledge of the Real Estate market with his strong commitment to client service to achieve a high level of professionalism.

When he is not selling real estate (which he does most of the time) he is devoted to his wife and three beautiful daughters, and for relaxing he enjoys sailing on the bay from Williamstown or hand making the odd football in his garden shed.


  • Syd Sherrin from W. B. Simpson & Son handled the successful sale of our apartment in Elwood. During the whole process he displayed a great deal of knowledge of real estate procedures and advised us wisely on the best sales strategies. Dealing with Syd was like working with a close friend who was prepared to be honest and straightforward. I formed the strong impression that his dealings with potential buyers would have been equally honest and straightforward. His approach clearly built trust and we found the whole selling process very stress free. In the end, his tactics and approach worked well and we were very happy with the selling price that Syd negotiated. Although Elwood is not in Syd’s main area of real estate activity, his efforts in selling the property were exemplarary. I would happily recommend his services to anyone needing to sell or buy a property.

  • I chose W. B. Simpson & Son to sell my apartment because of their long experience in real estate in the area and also the way in which they handled the renting of the property over 20 years. Syd Sherrin provided invaluable assistance in the preparation of the unit for sale. As the sale date approached the presence of Syd and Nick at the inspections allowed an accurate assessment of the potential buyers. Their experience and advice in the final weeks proved completely correct and I ended up with a price well beyond my expectations. At all times they were very pleasant, professional and cautiously optimistic, so dealing with them was most enjoyable. I have no reservations in recommending W. B. Simpson & Son given my recent experience.

  • We are long standing clients of W.B. Simpson and Son, who, as an established firm of real estate agents, have always conducted business in the most professional way. We have always found them to have an exceptional knowledge of the North Melbourne market and of properties, both commercial and residential, in surrounding areas. Mr Simpson and in particular, Mr Sherrin, were both genuine and astute in handling all aspects of our property sale, from refurbishment and marketing to pre auction negotiations. We were guided and always appropriately advised on the best way to improve and capitalise on an older style property. W.B. Simpson & Son have an excellent group of sub contractors who can be called upon, as needed, to complete various work to a high standard. On a personal level, both Richard and Syd were engaging, and turned, what can sometimes be the stressful process of selling, into an interesting, thoroughly managed and smoothly run project. Our property sold prior to auction with an excellent result, above the estimated price range. As vendors, I can thoroughly recommend both Richard Simpson and Syd Sherrin, and we hope to continue our association with W.B. Simpson & Son for many years.
