When time permits, Luke enjoys barracking on his beloved Western Bulldogs and venturing up to the small country town of Euroa to visit his family.
Luke assisted us with the sale of our property in Shakespeare Grove, Hawthorn in late 2017. Luke worked rigorously throughout the campaign to ensure that we obtained the best possible result on auction day. We were particularly impressed with his excellent communication skills and deep knowledge of the local market and buyers. He is also a skilled auctioneer and negotiator. We would without hesitation recommend Luke to anyone who is looking for a highly competent and trustworthy agent in the Hawthorn area.

Luke was fantastic to deal with in all capacities. Prompt with responses, reliable and measured in his approach. This combined with Marshall White’s attentive admin staff, meant that as much as possible was taken care of by them from start to finish. While the campaign was consistently strong, I went to auction day with a level of apprehension. Todd & Luke were confident and calm under pressure, delivering a faultless auction that achieved a price well over my reserve through multiple bidders. Apart from the excellent sale price, I couldn’t have asked for a better combination of agents to represent myself and the property to market. Not just great service, which you expect from a top agency, but they are genuinely good people as well. I will definitely be using Marshall White for my next ventures in the property market.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Marshall White for the way they have represented myself and Valerie during the sale of our two apartments in Denham Street, Hawthorn. We were very impressed with Luke. He is very professional in every way. Luke involved himself in everything from the marketing campaign, property photos, apartment improvements through to almost daily phone calls to myself with updates on potential buyers etc right up to the morning of the auction. The way he handled the sale of both apartments on the day was sublime and we achieved the record for the two highest sales for two bed apartments in Hawthorn so we were obviously thrilled with the result. Not only would we recommend Luke to anyone and everyone we will be requesting that he handles our future property dealings.
Dominik & Valerie Ashe
I put my trust in Luke that he would deliver a great service and ultimately a great result for my property. I was not disappointed. Throughout the campaign, he was a pleasure to deal with, he was very professional and knew exactly what to do to get the best result. He provided an exceptional service and most importantly, he achieved a result for my property that was beyond what I could ever have imagined. I could not have been happier and I recommend his service without hesitation. Thank you Luke for all your hard work and fabulous auction result.
I would like to take this opportunity to highlight the wonderful level of professionalism and service provided by Luke Saville during my campaign and Auction process. Luke was very personable with both myself as the vendor and also with prospective buyers. Luke presents with the 'right tone and level of diplomacy'; he has a great way of building trust amongst his clients and buyers. I felt very comfortable and confident entrusting my property with Luke who provided regular honest and realistic updates throughout the marketing campaign. Most notably was how well the Auction was handled on the day by both Luke and the team, without any pressure by them to sell on the day - if I chose not to. Luke and the team were very respectful of my decision and showed copious amounts of support at the Auction. It's easy to presume that an Auction can be stressful, and whilst there was a little bit (understandably so!), we actually had a lot of fun on the day. As it turned out, I did sell my apartment at Auction and received 'over and above' what a standard 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment achieves. I believe this had to do with Luke 'tuning in' to what my requirements were, as well as my price point expectations, which he professionally took through the campaign and into the Auction.
Luke Saville and the team at Marshall White came highly recommended by family and friends who had recently experienced successful sales of their properties through Marshall White. We were not disappointed! This was our first property sales experience, and we were initially a little anxious as we had set ourselves a relatively short time-frame in which we wanted to sell. We first met with Kathy and Luke who explained our options and the campaign process, giving us confidence that we could achieve a successful sale in the time-frame we required. Luke coordinated the marketing campaign and the auction, and we could not have been happier with our experience. We particularly appreciated his professionalism, regular communication and willingness to answer any questions we had along the way. Thanks to Luke, we found ourselves relaxed and confident on the day of the auction, which resulted in a sales price that exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Luke and the team to anyone looking to sell or buy a property, we wouldn't hesitate to engage Marshall White's services again in the future.

Luke made selling my home so easy and stress free! I appreciated his honesty and upfront approach, and he was clearly knowledgeable about the market and area, which gave me great confidence in his abilities. Luke was approachable and quick to respond to any of my questions, no matter how small they were. I was very impressed by his service and would definitely recommend him to any friends wanting to sell apartments in the Hawthorn area.
From day one, Luke Saville made me feel comfortable and confident in the process of the sale of my home in Kew. He was never pushy in his advice in what direction I should take, ie: sell privately, go to Auction etc., nor was he ever lax in advising me when the best time would be for decisions to be made and opportunities to be taken. Luke, along with his co-worker, Danny See were always at each open for inspection and continuously kept me abreast of all the marketing that was taking place, contacts that they were making and potential buyers that were interested in my property. I never had to call Luke to ask what was happening, he was always one step ahead and continually phoned me to keep me informed. At the eventual auction of my home, I had a close family friend present who commented on how well Luke performed the auction, “He sold every aspect that he could, he really worked for you”, was the feedback. The photographer and marketing department also need a mention for their professional work in portraying my home for the loving place it is. They truly captured its character and charm which also contributed greatly to its eventual sale. Finally, a big thank you again to Luke and Danny for their professionalism and support. I wish them both well in their careers in real estate, I have no doubt they will go far.
Luke Saville is energetic, enthusiastic, creative, tenacious, honest, polite, thoughtful and clever. Luke worked hard to win the contract to sell our Kew property then delivered us a buyer and a price we were very happy with. Throughout every stage of the process he was accessible, communicated efficiently and clearly and took our opinions into account, while giving considered advice whenever we asked for it. He is a terrific strategic thinker who takes time to research and plan his campaigns. He is also willing to modify a campaign where circumstances require it. He is careful with campaign expenses, making cost-effective suggestions at every stage. We highly recommend Luke Saville. He is a pleasure to work with. We have bought and sold with several agents previously and we think Luke is the pick of them all.
Luke was a professional throughout the whole process and made selling our property a smooth and stress-free experience. He kept us informed along the way and we felt like our property was in great hands. We achieved a fantastic result and would gladly recommend Luke to friends and family who are looking to sell.

Luke was the main agent assigned to selling my unit in Glen Iris. The first thing I noticed was that Luke was very calm and composed with his responses. When choosing agents, I ended up signing with Luke because he seemed the most trustworthy and believable with his responses. I found that Luke was extremely easy to communicate with and always kept me in the loop with what was going on. I preferred Luke's approach which was somewhere between passive and assertive but not too aggressive as to put off potential buyers. Overall I was extremely happy with Luke's work and he ended up getting me a price in excess of my expectations. Highly recommend Luke as an agent and will definitely be using him again for future sales I would highly recommend Luke who understands the apartment market and the local area well. Overall, Luke is lovely and extremely pleasant to deal with!
In all of my dealing with Luke he was professional and courteous. He was consistently reliable and if he said he was going to do something, he always followed through. He followed up all prospective purchasers and keep in contact with potential buyers. He always kept me up-to-date with feedback on the campaign and prospects, especially after each open. Luke auctioned the property. His familiarity with the property, having attended all open inspections at the property and his knowledge of where the purchaser interest lay, was a critical part of the successful sale of the property on the day of auction. His management of the auction process and his negotiation skills afterwards were exceptional. I would have no hesitation in recommending him and his colleague Danny See and would happily use their services again if the need arose. I was also very impressed with the marketing team at Marshall White who were very professional and pleasant to deal with.
I recently purchased a two-bedroom unit. From beginning to end, Luke was the best real estate agent I have ever dealt with. Luke was extremely kind, patient and helpful. He answered all of my questions (and there were a lot!) and he went out of his way to show me through my property again and again. Luke was always cheerful, punctual and contactable and he was very generous with his own time after business hours. Luke gave me enough space to feel 100% confident that the purchase was the right decision for me and yet I always knew that he meant business – he drives a hard bargain! It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Luke and if I am ever buying (or selling) another property in the area, Luke will be the first agent to know.
I am writing, upon settlement of my property purchase, to express my sincere appreciation to your Agent, Luke Saville, not only for his complete professionalism throughout my purchase experience, but also for his kindness, understanding and extreme patience. Nothing was too much trouble for Mr Saville to attend to, and I know he went above and beyond what was required of him in order to be helpful and accommodating, and always with such graciousness! Should I need to sell a property in the future I would have complete trust and confidence in engaging Mr Saville as my Agent. Thank you for a pleasant purchasing experience.
Our experience with Marshall White started when we were looking to purchase a property, we received regular updates from MW the agent and in the process of attempting to buy the agent found out we were also looking to sell our property. After gathering details from us, he immediately recommended Marshall White One and arranged a meeting with Luke to discuss our plans going forward. From that point on we continuous had active contact from Luke on the sales & buying side, which I found to be very impressive and this was the underlining reason why we choose Marshall White One to sell our property, even taking into consideration that they were not a market leader in our suburb. Once we started the campaign, we continued to have regular updates on how the campaign was proceeding and towards the final week we were presented with a detailed report of potential buyers, and surrounding properties that we were competing with, we found this to be very informative and helpful with the preparation of the sale. Auction day arrived and we were pleasantly surprised when we had our own personal coffee cart show up to serve all the auction guests, this was a great gesture. The most impressive performance though, was the auction itself, Luke was the auctioneer and boy did he put in 110%. I particularly liked the fact that he continuously spoke of our property the whole way through the 45 min auction, never gave up on selling our property’s features and surroundings. I think this made a real difference when people were thinking of making that last bid, he did an amazing job and we were so amazed with our end result! Thank you very much & I would certainly recommend Marshall White to anyone selling a property in future.

Luke and I have worked together on the purchase of my first home, Luke has a proactive and collaborative approach and has been a joy to partner with. As an experienced agent, Luke is highly responsive and committed providing high levels of customer service. I have always felt comfortable and Luke and he has made the process easy and not as stressful as first expected. The best Sales Executive I have dealt with by far.
Dear Luke, thank you for the fast and efficient sale of our property! The house sold at a record price within 10 days of listing and we cannot speak highly enough of all the team. In particular, thanks to Luke. His negotiating skills were superb and enabled us to achieve what we believe to be a very good price for the house in a difficult market. Our thanks also go to the whole team, photographer, marketing, and advertising. We wish you all the best for the future and know with the team you have you will go from strength to strength. P.S. We recommended Luke to our next-door neighbours who had their property with another agent for three months. They signed with Luke and he sold their home within 2 days!!

Dear Luke, We are writing to express our pleasure with you as our agent in our recent purchase of our first home. We would like to thank you for your consistent help, assistance and professionalism with the purchase of our home and we have found the experience in dealing with yourself and your Agency a pleasure. As we are first home buyers, you have guided us through the entire process from making an offer to closing the deal. You have made our experience an easy process as you were very informative and your communication was great. Our queries and questions were answered, emails were replied to in a quick, timely manner and phone calls were always returned. We were very happy with the service and will have no hesitation on recommending yourself & your agency to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a property.
Ben & Emily Skerry
Dear Luke, It’s a big step - choosing a new home and area after 32 years of being in the same place; but all our anxious moments were made easier thanks to the efficiency and help from Luke, who went out of his way in helping us choose a new home that suited our needs. There was prompt communication by phone or internet in response to any enquiries. We showed all of our friends and relatives our glossy brochure on which our new property was advertised! Thank you Luke a hard working and committed young man.
Mr & Mrs Dickson
A difficult market is a test of character and skill. Thank you very much for guiding me, my sister and brother through the sale of 15 Churchill St and for selling the property. We were very impressed by your knowledge , enthusiasm and commitment to excellence. Please pass onto to Duane, Felicity and all the other members of Marshall White that we were also impressed with their commitment to excellence. Together with yourself, Marshall White (Hawthorn) are a formidable team. We will have no hesitation in recommending Marshall White to other vendors. We hope to do business again with you in the future.
