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.
To Nathan and team at Bendigo Property Plus, We would like to take this opportunity to thank your organisation and to provide you with some feedback on your wonderful staff member, Di Selwood. After having our house on the market for nearly a year and with two different agents, one a large Bendigo based company and the other based in Castlemaine, we contacted Bendigo Property Plus and met Di. From the very first conversation Di was completely professional, accessible and a pleasure to deal with. Di is a fabulous communicator- friendly, open and honest, and has the ability to work "with" her clients every step of the way. You can imagine after nearly a year of marketing our property with the other agencies and without a single offer, how pleased we were with an offer after the first week! Di has followed up on every detail and any queries we had during the process, was always helpful, and always with a smile. Di has mountains of integrity and has consistently gone above and beyond our expectations, we would have no hesitation in recommending Di and Bendigo Property Plus to anyone considering selling their home.
Putting our home of 13 years on the market was a huge decision for us but finding the right estate agent was made easy after meeting with Nathan. He , compared to other agents was very easy going and most importantly not pushy. He gave us a price range for which he thought the house would sell and we were happy with that. The house sold within 12 days. What more is there to say? If you want honest and professional service from a real estate agent in Bendigo without feeling being pushed into an agreement Bendigo Property Plus will provide this service.
When we decided to sell our house and move interstate, from the minute we met with Danny when he came to look at our house, we knew that Bendigo Property Plus were the right people to help us. We could not have asked for any better service and professionalism then what we experienced from Danny during this process. With his knowledge and experience we worked together through what was never going to be an easy sell as our house was in a tough location being on a busy road. But we achieved the desired result and sold our house, and have Danny to thank for that. We would highly recommend the team at Bendigo Property Plus to anyone looking at selling their property in Bendigo.
We listed our Epsom property for sale with Nathan Diss from Bendigo Property Plus. After being put off by some of the bigger Bendigo agencies hard sell sales tactics we invited Nathan to come out to give us an appraisal. Although initially reluctant to sign we were immediately impressed with Nathan's professional yet approachable manner. Nathan's hard work and willingness to include our input into the whole process made selling our home a rewarding and stress free experience. Nathan's patience in wanting to achieve the best sale price for us resulted in our home selling for a figure well above our expectations. Needless to say we were thrilled with the result and would not hesitate in recommending Nathan to anyone looking for a high quality real estate agent in Bendigo.
We would like to pass on our sincere thanks to Danny for assisting us through the process of buying a home in Bendigo. Over 18 months of looking at far too many homes to remember and meeting many agents, your style of approach impressed us. Travelling from Mansfield to visit houses has been stressful, but you maintained contact via phone, email and text to keep us in the 'loop'. We particularly liked your un-pressured sales technique, always allowing us the time to look over our new home without constant shadowing and verbal conversation. Two things that make it difficult, in our minds, to really inspect something that is the biggest purchase in our lives. Wishing you all the very best and we will recommend you highly to anyone planning sell or buy in Bendigo.
