We were absolutely in love with our home and literally built it from the ground up ourselves (it’s a mud-bricker!) – we were very attached to it and thought we’d live on our beautiful property forever. We were therefore quite surprised when we found ourselves contemplating the idea of ‘downsizing’ from our beloved 20 acres. Our prior dealings with Real Estate Agents many years ago had left us with a less-than pleasant ‘taste in our mouths’ so we were quite reluctant to hand over the property sale to just anyone. We spoke to a couple of different firms who came and did appraisals, but in fact this only confirmed our reluctance. We eventually decided to list ourselves through one of the self-listing companies on the internet, after all, we believed we were the only ones who could explain to any prospective buyers the many beautiful and endearing features of our treasured property. Shortly after our listing went live on the internet, we received a very lovely letter in the mail from Meg Guzzo from Bendigo Property Plus. She introduced herself and explained that she’d seen our listing on the internet, and in fact congratulated us on undertaking this rather daunting task ourselves. She gave us encouragement and reassurance that if we needed any sort of advice or assistance, she’d be happy to provide it. We were so impressed with the warm tone of the letter, we decided to call, to which an appointment to meet soon followed. Due to our previous experiences, we were very cool toward Meg initially and even very boldly declared to them “We hate Real Estate Agents, do you realise you have a very bad reputation out there in the general community?” (We now actually shudder at our candidness but felt we should be honest from the get-go). However, to our surprise (and with a lot of credit to Meg), she just took it on the chin and agreed that there wasn’t a good vibe out there in the public arena – but that she was here to change all that. And with that, she sat with us for 2 HOURS and just chatted, so that by the end of it, we had warmed to her so much, we agreed to list our property with her. And she delivered! We have been absolutely delighted with Meg’s care and concern, her communication skills, advice on presentation of our home, understanding on how much our home means to us, her efforts in finding just the right purchaser who will also love our home and take care of the property just as much as we have – we could go on and on….. and I’m really not sure how to put in to words just how amazing Meg is! She deserves the highest commendation attainable within the industry! And we certainly know without a shadow of a doubt that we made the right decision to hand over our listing to her, in fact after seeing the whole process through, I think we were mad for thinking we could do it ourselves! All we can say to any prospective clients out there is, ‘Contact Meg Guzzo, forget your preconceived ideas of Real Estate Agents and just talk to her - you will be so pleased you did and like us, your opinion will be forever changed’. Heartfelt gratitude to you Meg, we now consider you a lifelong friend, we recommend you to EVERYONE that is need of property consultancy and will be delighted to deal with you for any future real estate needs. Thankyou so much.
We wanted to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for your efforts and constant updates on where we were at with the sale of our house. From the moment we contacted Bendigo Property Plus up to and including last Friday when you had arranged for the future owners of our house to have an inspection with the follow up phone call on how it all went. You always took the time to listen to what we wanted and acted on our behalf at all times. Your professionalism and treating us like we were the most important sale you had was very much appreciated; culminating in the stress-free sale of our home for the price we were asking. We would not hesitate and will, recommend you Di, and Bendigo Property Plus for a quick sale and professional and friendly approach at all times.
Danny did an outstanding job handling the sale of our beloved first home. From preparing it to go on the market to selling it at our first open for inspection, he kept us informed and gave us realistic expectations based on the current market. We recommend him highly to anyone selling a home. Good job and thanks Danny!
Meg listened to us about what we were after when buying a house. She got a feel for our taste and offered up great advice. My husband and I really can’t say enough good things about her. She is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with her time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of several months). She answered every question and explained every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Buying a home in this market is challenging but working with Meg made it as painless and straightforward as possible. We highly recommend her.
We recently worked with Di Selwood from Bendigo Property Plus to sell our beautiful home in Castlemaine. Di did an amazing job, selling our home in seven days. Di was outstanding with her professional manner to both my husband & myself as the sellers and as equally professional in her dealings with the purchasers. Bendigo Property Plus maintain very high standards for their clients and we would certainly recommend them and Di Selwood in particular, to anyone looking to sell their home.
We put our Epsom home up for sale during a very difficult time in the market when quite a few good houses around us were already sitting unsold and had been for a while. The Bendigo real estate competition to sell was fierce. Danny worked very hard to sell our property. He gave us calm, sensible advice and support while we waited for a buyer to appear. He kept us frequently informed, we didn’t have to sit and wonder what was going on and he suggested some changes to our web posting (at no extra cost). Customer service was 10 out of 10. While the other houses nearby were passed over, ours sold. It was a very professional and friendly job well done.
