Principal, Ray White Clare Valley
Having lived in the Mid North region nearly all of his life, Geoff has a long-term commitment to the Clare Valley and Mid-North Regions.
Now a 10+ year veteran in the real estate industry, Geoff’s extensive knowledge of residential property, rural lifestyle property and rural farming property in particular has seen him acknowledged both within the Ray White group nationally and the Real Estate Institute of SA as the No1 sales person in SA/NT on many occasions. In 2012, Geoff was inducted into The REISA Hall of Fame having been awarded the No1 Rural Salesperson in SA on 3 occasions.
At the start of 2012, Geoff teamed up with his son Daniel to form a formidable real estate partnership.
The Schell family own and operate the highly successful Ray White Clare Valley real estate businesses and in 2016 established a state-wide Ray White Rural franchise with its central office in the Ray White Corporate office located at 32 Halifax Street Adelaide.
An experienced and highly regarded property auctioneer, Geoff is also a regular guest auctioneer, often teaming up with son and business partner Daniel at many community functions, sporting clubs and community fundraisers.
Geoff and his wife Karen have also owned and operated a farming business for over 30 years and live on their family property “Wahroonga” at Leighton near Burra. As a result Geoff has extensive networks within regional and rural communities and the agriculture and finance industries.
With consistency of outstanding sales results across rural properties, lifestyle properties, residential and commercial properties throughout the region, Geoff has earned the reputation as the preferred real estate salesperson by his extensive client list.
Geoff’s integrity and passion for his work, together with his strong communication and negotiation skills, industry knowledge and practical industry experience make him the ideal person to sell your property.
Whether buying or selling rural, residential, lifestyle, or commercial properties, Geoff and Daniel would be delighted to offer their real estate services.
Appreciated constant feedback on response to marketing of a difficult property.
Our grazing property was recently sold by Geoff Schell of Ray White Clare Valley. Geoff’s honest advice, his personal attention, his marketing plan and negotiating skills were outstanding and resulted in a very quick and successful sale. His efforts were supported by the very efficient Ray White staff at the Clare office. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Geoff and the Agency to any other vendors or purchasers requiring real estate services.

I would like to thank you for selling my property and achieving the very best possible result. At all times I was made to feel that my business was important to you. Being kept up to date on a regular basis with any developments was great. The time spent explaining the sale process was greatly appreciated making what could be a stressful time so much easier. Your knowledge, professionalism, and passion is a credit to you all. Well done and thank you.

Geoff was honest about the issues involved in selling our property but wasn't prepared to "under-sell" it either resulting in a quick sale at a realistic price.

Geoff's local knowledge and his large data base of potential clients was a great asset when selling our property. The level of communication between both Geoff and Daniel to ourselves was outstanding, keeping us constantly informed of the position at all times The work ethics of both were outstanding. No matter if it was after hours or weekends, they would pass on information immediately they received it. They achieved an outstanding result in a very complicated sale. Also a big thank you to Carly (PA to Geoff & Daniel) and all other staff for all their help and support through the process.

Recently we sold our property at St Kitts through Ray White Clare Valley (Geoff and Daniel Schell). After speaking to another agent about selling our property and getting negative feedback we decided to contact Geoff and Daniel as they had recently sold numerous properties in the Robertstown area where we also own farming land. After speaking to Geoff and Daniel who were very enthusiastic about selling our property, we arranged an inspection of the property. Unsure about how to market the property we took their professional advice and decided to Auction the property. After a short marketing period of only 5 weeks in which Geoff and Daniel sent out brochures to neighbouring landholders and advertising in local paper and the internet the property was auctioned and sold on that day. We would highly recommend Geoff and Daniel and their team for selling rural property regardless of it size or value. Their work ethics and personal service was beyond what we had previously experienced with selling property.
Ross and Jill Wiech - Eudunda
We really have appreciated the way in which Geoff and Daniel have worked with us to successfully sell the Property. The planning of the sale was excellent as was the advertising. The communication and feedback was exceptional as we find both, easy and fun to communicate with. We wish to thank you for the successful sale and the way in which it was conducted throughout. We appreciate the sensitive way in which you work with your clients and look after them. We have seen this with Hills Road, 10 March Court and Burford's home and can assure any of our contacts that we have "the best team" in S.A.

I have recently had the pleasure of dealing with Geoff who has just sold our property after being on the market for nearly 12 months with another agent. This man is the most courteous person in real estate I have ever dealt with. His attention to the details to try and secure a sale for us were second to none. He constantly kept us informed and in the years we have been buying and selling real estate I must say I have never come across this level of service.
Linda & Colin Mele - Mintaro
Thank you Geoff for helping us sell our house. Thank you for being at all time helpful, friendly, honest and co-operative and always willing to answer any enquiries we may have had. Also thank you for marketing our house so well, it exceeded our expectations.
Brenton Klau - Redhill
I would like to comment on the sale of my house in Clare. The efforts of Geoff and Daniel Schell were outstanding for the work done and the sale of my house to achieve the price required through consultation and negotiation. I would highly recommend Geoff and Daniel Schell and Ray White Clare as agents for the sale or purchasing of a property in the Clare and Mid North Region.
Daryle Forbes - Clare
To Geoff, Daniel and Carly we thank you for the great service that we received in selling our home. We appreciate that with a very depressed market in Burra you were certainly put to the test to sell the property. Advertising, marketing, reporting and the great customer service was of a very high standard. You should all be very proud of doing the impossible. I will definitely be recommending you to all my family and friends.
Anne Angrave - Adelaide
At all times there was great attention to detail, excellent service, very personal and outstanding service from Geoff and Daniel and their team. Photos were very good, almost too good, as it looked better in photos than real life! This was a pleasant team to work with, which made it so much easier to deal with the sale of the property, considering the other dramas at the time also. We would happily recommend them to others.
Errol and Heather Hewett - Clare
We were very pleased with the outcome of the sale of our property 'Pinery Hut' at Bumbunga. We appreciate all the hard work and long hours you put into the presentation and marketing of our farm. You kept us regularly informed by phone and email of development and progress. We trusted that you would try to do your best to find buyers and you were successful. Many Thanks!
Mostyn and Joanne Gill - Bumbunga
We had wondered what priority this sale would receive from an agent given that it was only a small parcel, but were pleasantly surprised with Geoff's attitude to the sale. While he provided us with sound advice, he also listened to what was important to us in terms of how it was sold and helped us devise a strategy accordingly. We felt that Geoff handled the marketing and advertising well, followed up with interested purchasers to our expectations and was professional from our first meeting with him, right through to the auction and signing of contracts. He also kept us informed along the way, and ensured that all documentation was completed accurately, and we experienced no delays or hassles. Our property sold at auction, amd ee would highly recommend Geoff Schell.
