Our property sold faster than we expected. Toby was impressive from the time he came over for the evaluation until the moment he got the job done and kept me in the loop the whole time. Very honest with his feedback and confident that he could get the sale from the get go. All positive from myself and my partner Amy . Well done to Toby and Bellarine Property for your professionalism.

Peta Walter was extremely helpful as she was in constant touch with us and we were kept fully informed of all aspects of our sale. Levi Turner was also involved in our initial discussions and was very helpful with his advice . In fact all the Staff at the Agency were very friendly and helpful.

We are very happy to review the performance of Bellarine Property in the selling our house. The first meeting to set out the selling and marketing of our property with Levi and Peta left myself and Trish feeling very comfortable in our selection of Bellarine Property as our agents. We have had a number of experiences in both selling and buying with Bellarine Property and all of them have been very professional and enjoyable. Peta has always been very considered in her advice and skilled at getting a sale or purchase across the line without compromising us as vendors and or purchasers. Both Trish and I really enjoy working with Peta, she is highly skilled and has great integrity as well as infinite  patience. Additionally Peta has the added skill of being able to correctly read her clients and asses their needs and deliver the right solution. We would like to thank Peta and Levi and the rest of the team for achieving a very good result for us in the sale of our house.

Although the process of selling your house can be a very stressful and extremely trying time, we can not thank Toby at Bellarine Property enough. He made the whole process simple from start to finish, he is professional, courteous and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the Ocean Grove real estate market. It was such a slow and tough market we were selling in, but Toby excelled and got us a great price in a very reasonable time frame. Thanks Toby we were so happy with the result you got for us, we will definitely be using Toby and Bellarine Property for all our future sales. Regards Rachel and Trent S

from Trent & Rachael - Vendor - Ocean Grove

After over 35 years of trading property we are comfortable to say Ben Roberts and the Ocean Grove team have proven, to date, to be one of the most hard working, professional and effective agents we have purchased and sold through. We are not in the business of casually handing out referrals. In this case its warranted!

Zoe and the team at Bellarine Property are nothing but a pleasure to work with when selling your home. There’s always a friendly voice on the end of the phone keeping you updated on where the market is at, the buyers who are around and what to do next. We simply find Zoe’s commitment to her job is second to none. Zoe works incredibly hard to find the right buyer and make the whole process feel effortless. Thank you so much for another great result.

from Cain & Teneille - Vendor - Ocean Grove

We could not fault the manner in which the campaign was carried out. Right from the outset, Levi and Peta provided us with a clear presentation, suggestions and advice as to how they would go about selling our home. They provided us with an excellent proposal as to how best we could sell the house with various options according to our wishes. We felt we could trust them to do the very best for us. We were very happy with the result that they achieved.

The service provided was terrific. Zoe was engaging, responsive and personable. By having regular communication about what’s happening was great. It gave us a sense of comfort that our business was valued and treated with a focus. The service from other members of the team was professional, friendly and efficient. The photos of our unit were really good, capturing the features and feel of the place. Our experience was an excellent one.

Recently my sister and I worked closely with Ange and Lee to sell our mother’s property. From the moment we first met them we were very impressed with their honesty and professionalism and their attention to detail. They discussed with us the best way to market the property to gain the best result. We were extremely happy by the way in which they left no stone unturned and kept us informed of every step. Ange and Lee make a wonderful team and we were extremely happy working with them and the outcome of their efforts.

from Dale & Carolyn - Vendors - Leopold

During the course of the marketing campaign, I have found the Sales Staff being Ben Roberts & Zoe Le Page & their Support Staff being Adele Foott & Michelle Sambucco to be very kind, friendly, supportive & professional at all times. From the time I initially sat down with Ben to discuss the potential marketing & selling of the property, all suggestions, recommendations & successes Ben provided were factual & delivered. I believe the marketing, sales expertise, communications & the profile of Bellarine Property all combined to deliver me a successful sales result, as a vendor I couldn’t be happier & would definitely recommend Ben, Zoe & Bellarine Property to all future vendors who are considering selling their property. I look forward to purchasing further property through Ben & continuing our professional relationship.

As repeat vendors, we cannot speak highly enough of the Bellarine Property team. Selling involves putting trust into your agent and with the BP team you know you can rely on them. Not only did they sell our property for a record price, they also helped us with ideas for our next move. Move from Vendor to requiring their property management services for a place to live, and again we were met with first class service. Job well done!

I found Laura at Bellarine Properties to provide a very efficient, effective and timely service in property management. Laura had a tenant lined up almost before I had decided to rent my property and negotiated terms beyond my expectation. JW – Landlord September 2015

Bev, Laura and Carolyn..A big thank you in your efforts and work is assisting us to find our home. You guys are awesome. JA & TA – Tenants September 2015

Many thanks to Laura and the team for the care and dedication you have shown in managing our investment property. Your thorough approach always gave us confidence that our property was well looked after. SL & TL – Landlord August 2015

Laura – Thanks for managing our property so well over the last 6 years. The place is in great condition and we are enjoying being back. JR & NR– Landlord July 2015
Hi Laura and the rest of the team. Thanks ever so much for your wonderful service. Chris and I very much appreciate your diligence and hard work especially whilst we are away. We know our unit is in good hands. HW & CW – Landlord July 2015
Laura and Bev – Fantastic and very impressive..we spoke to other agencies and they were NO comparison..in fact, the others weren’t impressive at all. GG & LG – Landlord June 2015

Laura Stevens of Bellarine Property was my Rental Manager. At the time and couldn’t have been more helpful. Throughout the 5 years plus I leased Knox Drive, Laura was always efficient, made regular inspections, was quick to attend to problems and liaised well between the property owner and myself. I’m pleased to recommend Laura (now Property Investment Manager at Bellarine Property)and her staff to anyone requiring the
services she offers. Thank you Laura for all your assistance. TC – Tenant June 2015

To Laura, Thanking you for your services and the way you have handled the property at Dalkeith Ave Ocean Grove, as a landlord l have been extremely happy, thanks once again. MB – Landlord June 2015

Just a note to Laura, you and your team, for the help and assistance you gave me in with the letting of our house in Barwon Heads. Any requests were promptly answered, and any problems were dealt with quickly. All the tenants were great, and we never had any worries about the house. JM – Landlord April 2015

Bev, thank you so much for help, you have been an absolute delight. JM & LM – Tenants May 2015

Thanks Bev, you guys have been great to deal with and made the whole process very easy. Thank you. BB – Tenant March 2015

Re Ben Roberts:
Thanks for your great work in securing our new property in Ocean Grove. We appreciate your efforts in organising an inspection of the finished product of Ocean Breeze Homes; it was very beneficial to be able to view a home that was fully operational and get feedback from the owners. We also appreciated the professionalism of Bellarine Property office staff; in particular Melinda was very good in all our dealings with the paperwork. A job well done!

J Marchant

“From the onset, Christian and his team were an invaluable part of the sales and marketing process; they provided crucial information in relation to the product mix, configuration, price points, buyer demand and outlined a comprehensive sales and marketing strategy which was driven by Christian’s enormous enthusiasm and strict work ethic. He was always one step ahead with his proactive nature, securing comprehensive editorial coverage in both local and regional press, organising marketing/sales based events and constantly monitoring and fine tuning our strategy. As owner of real estate business in Melbourne, Sydney and Asia, I can only say that I wish I had 10 Christian Bartleys working for me. He is not only streets ahead of any agent on the coast in Victoria but better than 99% of agents in Australia. The bottom line is he is proactive, driven, professional and not afraid to try something new.”
J Meagher

We would not hesitate in recommending Bellarine Property to anyone contemplating selling their house. The service we received from the entire staff, especially Mel and Renee, was first class from the initial appraisal to the signing of the sales contract. Ben Roberts is an exceptional real estate agent; he kept us informed during each stage of the sales campaign and was always diligent in responding to our queries. This has been by far our best experience in selling a property and we are so glad we chose Bellarine Property to handle the sale.
H&D Heim

‘As always stated to both Ben and Ian I have appreciated their time and effort in selling my property. A few key points from my perspective:
1. Initial call to Ben for an appraisal resulted in a return call from my message in under 15mins. (another company took until the following day). This simply demonstrated to me that my calls would be returned in a timely manner.
2. Both Ian and Ben spent considerable time walking my entire property and Ian in particular demonstrated to me by his observations that he ‘knew’ certain aspects regarding rural properties. I don’t believe that you can effectively sell a property if you have not seen the entire property, another company chose to simply stand in my driveway and view the property in that manner. Ian was also the only real estate agent that knew what the AGA was.
3. It was nice to meet the entire team and it demonstrated how the company worked within a team environment. This is a real feature of your company and the whole team should be commended.
Sincere thanks to both Ian and Ben, it has been a pleasure to work with you both. I have been comfortable to speak my mind and ask your opinions in regards to any issue in the sale of this property. Your advice and ability to quickly follow or implement my choices is fantastic.
A huge thank you for simply giving me prompt feedback without thinking you needed to stroke my ego and tell me my property was fantastic. Honest feedback from both of you has been appreciated.
Ian your ability to negotiate to the price you have achieved, past what I had as my minimum is truly amazing. Taking into consideration there were no other offers on the table…….it is impressive.
Overall I am very impressed, very happy with the professional manner of both Ben and Ian and wish the company continued good business.’

K. Moyle

I was very fortunate that the house I chose was being sold by Ian.
Throughout the process he was courteous, knowledgeable and incredibly helpful.
I would recommend Bellarine Property.
L. Wright

We chose Bellarine Property because of their reputation and new vibrant image/marketing. From the start we were very pleased at the service from Christian, John and Renee.
Feedback after inspections was excellent and honest; attention to detail to sell the property was also excellent.
Mick and Karen

The Bellarine Property staff are very polite, very professional and a pleasure to deal with. Ben Roberts and Ian Dart are great people, excellent communicators and get results. Special thanks to Ian for his time and effort after hours in selling our house in only three weeks!

R. Leigh

Sincere and very big thanks to you, John, Renee, and your team for all your efforts and assistance in managing the sale of our property over a difficult economic and extended period last year culminating in a successful sale and settlement early this year at a price with which we were very happy. Thanks very much for your persistence, service, area/industry knowledge and patience with us as exacting vendors which was really appreciated.

G. Van Tol

Thank you so much for everything you have done regarding selling my house at 22 Melanie Place, Ocean Grove. You kept in touch with myself and the family regarding inspections and where we were at with the sale and made everything smooth sailing. I found that everything was always under control and I felt relaxed and confident with you handling everything. Still, I was quite surprised at the wonderful result and think you did an absolutely fabulous job and I am so grateful. I would have no hesitation in recommending Bellarine Property to other friends, family, work colleagues selling and buying property.

H. Ashton

All the staff at Bellarine Property have been helpful, supportive and sincere. I have thoroughly appreciated their high level of customer service and how I was always treated as a valued customer. There is a positive and community feel to Bellarine Property and Ben Roberts in particular was very passionate about his job and doing the best for his customers. I look forward to working with Bellarine Property in the future and highly recommend them to family and friends.

R Curtain

We would like to thank you both for closing the deal with the final sale of our house. You both went beyond our expectations and we appreciate it very much. Colin and I were impressed that we were not hassled or pressured during the last 4 months and only have positive feedback from all our dealings with Bellarine Property.

L. Honan

Selling our home through Bellarine Property was a surprisingly easy experience. “Efficient, pleasant, punctual and good communication” are words that spring to mind. We felt the team at BP worked well together behind the scenes to get the best result for us. Ian and Ben gave great feedback after each inspection and managed to get the right people through the door and all parties ended up very satisfied.

A. Ford & I. Tribe

First of all, on behalf of our family, I’d like to thank you both for helping to achieve a great result on the sale of Asbury Street Ocean Grove last Saturday. I’ve got to say, I was a little nervous with Christian’s musical intro (it has become a hit with the family members who couldn’t attend the auction!!), but you both showed that you know how to sell property as well as (if not better than) any others in the entire Melbourne market. All throughout this sale process, every one of your team at Bellarine Property has been nothing but professional, helpful and most of all, totally focussed on doing the best job possible for us as vendors. From our initial meeting with you both and Ben, to our later dealings with Renee, we knew that we’d made the right decision to entrust the sale of our property to you all. Apologies if we’ve overlooked anyone. Whilst Saturday was certainly an emotional day for us all, we can move on feeling as if we’ve achieved a fair sale price, thanks in large part to all of your efforts. I look forward to running into you all at some stage when re-visiting the Bellarine area.

Thanks again and regards, Glenn (on behalf of Karen, Barb & David)

WOW! The staff at Bellarine Property are amazing! They sold our house in 2 weeks@ Everything they id was professional and prompt. They were efficient and courteous and made us feel like we were their only clients. We have sold before, but it’s never been this easy. We will highly recommend them to everyone we speak to. We can’t thank them enough. IF YOU ARE THINKING OF SELLING, PUT BELLARINE PROPERTY ON TOP OF YOUR LIST!

The listing of our block of land was handled by Ben Roberts. Ben was most informative and gave us good customer service, discussing the pros and cons and arranging the advertising. Ian Dart was the seller, and we found Ian most professional in his conduct, informing us all the way through the negotiations. We have been very satisfied with Bellarine Property and look forward to future sales with Ben and Ian.

L & J Morrish

Laurie and Dawn Deale would like to formally acknowledge the work and effort of Ian Dart and Ben Roberts in the recent sale of our property. Their advice was sound and their enthusiasm on our behalf never wavered. We could not be happier with the result and would recommend Bellarine Property to anyone thinking of buying or selling!

D & L Deale

Many thanks for the enthusiasm, energy and patience you brought to the tasks of selling our house – and that was just at the initial meeting. The whole process was conceived and carried through to a successful completion with flair and consummate professionalism. For that we thank you and your wonderful team at Bellarine Property. We also thank you all for being such a joy to deal with. Good on you Bellarine Property, you are our dream real estate agent!

Barwon Heads Primary School and the Sheepwash Classic team would like to thank Christian Bartley and the Bellarine Property team for contributing greatly to the success of our fun run.

Not only did Bellarine Property sponsor the event with prizes, signage and custom made water bottles, Christian was personally committed to the success of the run by attending our meetings, advertising, providing equipment and having his family, including his parents, volunteer on the day.

Thank you!

Ben, thanks for “hanging in there” and a job well done re the sale of our house in a difficult market.
I know Ben could not have been able to achieve achieved this sale without the support from the rest of the Bellarine Property Team (the behind the scenes back up group) who also contributed to this successful outcome. Thanks to all.

Selling our home through Bellarine Property was a surprisingly easy experience. Efficient, pleasant, punctual and good communication are words that immediately spring to mind. We felt the team at B.P worked well together behind the scenes to get the best result for us. Ian and Ben gave great feedback after each inspection and managed to get the right people through the door and all parties ended up very satisfied.

Dear John

Just a short note to thank you for the recent sale of our much loved home.

We certainly weren’t seeking a quick sale – indeed we were looking forward to seeing both you and Christian’s Marketing Campaign homework come to life – but to have it on the market and sold in three days was remarkable!

Thanks to you again for all your efforts; you and your team are to be congratulated on a superb job well done.

Professional, available and integrity – what more could you ask for?

All the best in the future,

Ricky Kristen, Ella & Buddy Carroll

“Laura has worked tirelessly managing what was once described as an ‘unmanageable’ rental property by her competitors!

Through her continued commitment to our unique entry level rental accommodation, a welcoming environment has been created for those wanting to downsize and still enjoy what ocean grove has to offer. Laura’s dedicated and careful screening of tenants has created a safe and neighborly atmosphere for other tenants and residents. This dedication over the past 18 months has transformed our underperforming asset into one we are proud to own, increasing yield by 2 percentage points in the process! Her professionalism to the task has reaffirmed our commitment in the region. So much so, that we plan to add to our portfolio in the very near term.”

Anthony Montano

Ken and I were discussing this morning our experience of renting for 12 months in Barwon Heads. We just thought you should know how wonderful we found Laura Mann to work with. Anytime we rang and asked for a meeting to discuss things she was available and always had suggestions for us in dealing with our Landlord. We have told many people how good she is.

Ken & Helen Walsgott

Dear Christian

Just a brief note to thank you for your hard work and diligence when selling our property at number 11 Margate street, Barwon Heads. While we were always optimistic regarding the property selling, it could not have happened without you first convincing us to sell it! Your attention to detail while attracting our business was thoroughly professional and never over the top. You simply presented the facts as you saw them – never giving us false hope. We never at any stage felt pressured into choosing you as an agent; rather it was simple a matter of us choosing who we felt most comfortable with. Having compared your service to three other agents in the area, there was never any hesitation in deciding to run with you. To be perfectly frank we were greatly disappointed with the level of service and knowledge the three alternate companies displayed. They never at any stage appeared to really want the business- amazing. Once again, thank you and I would not hesitate in recommending you to any family/ friends who may wish to buy or sell property in Barwon Heads.
Kind Regards

Alistair Roland

Thank you for calling today- Settlement day- to advise us of the smooth transfer of our property to the new owners. We have been very pleased with process and assistance received from you and your friendly staff.

The process of the selling of our property has been satisfactory and we have been pleased with your attentiveness and for you prompt communication with us at all times.
When we were selecting an agent to sell our Barwon Heads property we went through a thorough process of assessing all the local agents. We had previously been impressed with the work by your company at an auction in January and were rather biased in your favour. However your communication, enthusiasm and organisation finally made us confirm our previous assessment and we have not been sorry with our choice.

Thank you again for you assistance and accurate assessment of what the property was worth. Yours sincerely,

Dianna & Ian Macmillan

We would like to express our appreciation for your successful effort of selling our property at 12 Bostock Avenue, Barwon Heads.

We were impressed with your attitude, honesty and enthusiasm throughout the sale of the property. You went beyond you call of duty on many occasions, working outside business hours and also on your days off work. We signed the final contract at 8pm on Friday evening which shows you respect our interests and needs. Thank you, you have great understanding of a business relationship, and were always striving to meet our expectations. This reflects the new breed of personality in the Real Estate industry. The level of enthusiasm is rare today in today’s society and we are grateful that we have experienced it first hand.

You were successful selling our property for a record price and giving outstanding service throughout the period, and therefore we would be happy to compliment you to any future clients you may encounter.
Yours truly,

Judith Barton

We were put at ease by the friendly but professional attitude from the first meeting. You explained your strategy and showed us the best points of the property.

Within three days the property was sold at the asking price after some very hard work by you and your staff. A very smoothly run operation all round.
Thank you for everything

Ernie & Margaret Mason

What can we say!
After deciding to put our house on the market, it was with little doubt that we would use your services as in the past we bought and sold a block of land with you. On that occasion you were extremely helpful, understanding and very professional.

Having contacted you and telling you of our decision to sell our house, what followed was truly unbelievable! After explaining our situation to you, hoping for a quick sale at an acceptable price ( well who doesn’t want that!) you explained thoroughly your new methods of sale and gave us plenty of options to get out there into the market.

What happened next was truly incredible, Christian, you sold our house in three days! To your credit and hard work we were very pleased with the price achieved and a thirty day settlement. Our dream had come true, you literally sold our house before the ‘for sale’ sign went up!
Christian we were both so appreciative for all that you have done for us, your hard work and honesty. Your professionalism is unmatched.

What can we say……..THANK YOU
Yours Sincerely,

Anthony & Laura Carter

On behalf of all the families involved thank you for your effort and recommendations to take the property to auction which resulted in such a fine result. Everyone is extremely pleased. Can you also pass on our sincere thanks to John also.
Kind regards,

Matthew Burgess

After trying several agents to handle the sale of our home, we were instantly impressed with Christian Bartley’s attitude and willingness to help us.

From the beginning Christian showed an interest and his follow up over the period was very thorough. He had regular contact with us and gave us the confidence we needed.

When the decision was made to put the home on the market, his planning and detail left us knowing exactly what was happening. The cooperation of Lindley and other staff members ensured us we were in good hands.

In closing we would recommend Christian and all other staff at Guyetts for their professional service.
Thanking you

Julie Chapman

The property, 53 The Avenue Ocean Grove, was successfully sold at auction on the 25th January 2003 on my behalf.

I would like to congratulate your staff, especially Christian Bartley, on the way they proficiently preformed the whole process of selling the house from start to finish. My thanks go to everyone concerned.

In less than three hours after the first inspection a marketing appraisal, complete with a photo of the house, was in my email. A hard copy was received the following day. The keenness of Christian was the main reason I decided on placing the house with Guyett Real Estate and I have been rewarded. He continuously kept me up to date of the progress leading up to the Auction. The efficiency and friendly service is still continuing with a phone call this morning keeping me informed of the latest developments.
I wish Christian well in his profession and feel he is an asset to the company.

I would not hesitate to recommend Christian Bartley to anyone considering selling a house as I received the very best of attention with a satisfactory result.

Barbara Dunton

I acknowledge your involvement as the listed agent, in the sale of the above property and the purchase of a new property.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your assistance, which has been of a high professional standard. You have displayed a strong customer focus and this is has been evident in you efficient handling of all matter re above.

You have certainly been very reliable and provided optimum communication as all times. We would be certainly most happy to contact you again for any future real estate dealings.
Thank You

Grant Hamilton

Having recently sold our house through your office, I would like to say that dealing with Christian Bartley was a very successful and pleasing experience.

On our interaction with Christian, we found him to be reassuring, informative, well organized and very professional. His friendly and relaxed nature makes what often can be a stressful time, much easier to deal with. His correspondence with us throughout the time of which our house was on the market was also fantastic. At the point of sale, ant potential hiccups were handles by Christian immediately with great support to both parties achieving the best possible result.

I would have to say that having sold houses numerous times, I know the ease with which we sold this time is not what we have experienced before. We have been truly pleasantly surprised and appreciative of all Christians efforts. It is refreshing to find this type of service as it is so rare these days.
We would like to say then, that we are extremely grateful for a service beyond even our hopeful expectations and we will as locals, be certainly recommending the use of the professionals to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Yours thankfully

Jennifer & Carey Fordyce

I am writing this letter to thank and commend Christian Bartley for the assistance he provided to my fiance and I in the purchase of our new home on Ocean Grove.

During our 6 Month search Christian provided unwavering and tireless support and assistance. His attitude throughout was professional, friendly and helpful. He listened to our needs and proactively recommended properties that were of interest to us. We were delighted that when we found the right house the sale went to Christian. He certainly deserved it.

Due to Christians great work we have no hesitation in recommending him to any prospective purchaser or vendor.

We wish him all the best in his career.
Yours sincerely

Damian Moran & Veronica Nugent
