As a person who has bought and sold a total of 6 properties over the last 20 years, I have found Bendigo Real Estate to be the best by far. Nekti and his team were polite, punctual, informative and honest. The inspections were never intrusive and the sale of my home was quick with the price achieved being fantastic. I am very happy with the format that Benidgo Real Estate used for the sale and would not hesitate to recommend them.
Thank you for handling the sale of my property in Bendigo with the utmost respect and consideration.
Being a very passionate and sometimes paranoid dog owner, I greqatly appreciate the fact that no inspections were carried out without plenty of prior advice from you and that you were always extremely careful not to leave any gates open when conducting inspections.
I wish you all the very best for the future and hope you continue going from strength to strength.
Thanks again, Fiona Hunter
I have recently sold my home through Bendigo Real Estate. I found the whole experience easy and stress free, and could not be happier with the outcome.
This was due to being well informed about every aspect of the sale from start to finish. The staff were thoughtful and considerate and I felt at all times that my best interests were being looked after. I would highly recommend Bendigo Real Estate to anybody who is considering selling their home.
I wish to thank you sincerely for the outstanding result you achieved in the sale of our Bendigo property. Your communication and negotiation skills ensured a speedy and practicable transaction, which resulted in a sale that exceeded all expectations, including an excellent price with quick settlement.
Thank you, Linda Nancarrow
Our family home was recently sold. My husband Leigh and I have no hesitation in recommending Damien O'Shannessy and his team at Bendigo Real Estate. We found Damien to be extremely competent, honest and above all flexible and professional.
We knew from Damien's initial visit all costs and commissions that would be incurred. We did not find Damien 'pushy' or intrusive and he respected our privacy by informing us well in advance of potential inspections and 'open houses'.
Damien was extremely helpful in offering sound and practical advice along our journey with him. We could not find fault either with Damien, nor any of the other sales consultants in not keeping us in the loop at all times.
We would not hesitate in recommending Damien and BRE to anyone thinking of selling their property and would like to thank the team for making this experience as stress free as possible.

I initially contacted Damien O’Shannessy (no relation), the Principal at Bendigo Real Estate because of his high profile within the local community. In addition, I had heard very favourable reports from my friends and acquaintances regarding his real estate activities through that very familiar “word of mouth” mechanism. In my subsequent dealings with him, all positive reports were proven to be totally and fully correct.
Initially, Damien immediately and accurately identified the appropriate target market for the potential sale of the property and swiftly drew up a detailed yet very reasonably priced advertising strategy. This was immediately provided to me for my approval. The campaign was characterised by thoroughness combined with economy in relation to the all important advertising dollars. Throughout the entire sale process, he kept me completely informed as to the exact amount of progress that had been made. On not one occasion did I feel any need to contact him – such was his level of conscientiousness. This level of attentiveness meant that I was able to transfer the very natural worries associated with any sale of a property to him. He inspired me with confidence that the property would indeed be sold and very importantly, within the best possible time frame because of his complete dedication to achieving an excellent result. This is in fact exactly what did occur! The legalities associated with the actual sale were very quickly and efficiently disposed of and all that was required of me was my signature.
Damien is quite unique in that he always strives to obtain the very best possible price for both the vendor and the buyer alike. This is completely due to his personal level of integrity and honesty. It is interesting to note that in my case even the actual out of town buyers expressed their gratitude to him for his level of commitment and service! Apart from the level of professionalism exhibited by Damien in every aspect of the sale, he is truly a terrific person with a very friendly, genuine, understanding and open manner. His entire approach makes you feel that here is an honest, reliable person in whom one can place your trust to safely and successfully achieve one of the most important sales of one’s life.

Stuart and I want to thank you for the successful sale of our first family home.
I was not prepared for the ‘roller coaster’ journey to come with the sale process, however with the guidance and professionalism of both Paul and Cath, I managed to come out at the end unscathed and we achieved the desired price for our home.
We were grateful that Paul was able to schedule appointments after hours to limit the inconvenience to our work routines, and also for the great insight into the market demands and how we could better prepare our home for sale and enhance the saleability of our property. Paul was also able to draw upon contacts that could assist us in achieving the desired presentation of our property.
Constant contact with both Stuart and I ensured we were always kept informed and factually up to date throughout the whole process. We appreciated the personal relationship, integrity and professionalism that Paul, Cath and the Bendigo Real Estate Team delivered. We are more than willing to recommend all prospective clients to utilise such a great team that provide such a professional service and is able to achieve vendor goals.
Please feel free to share the content of this note, and we look forward to potentially being another client in the future.
With many thanks and kind regards.
Rebecca and Stuart Mandersloot.
Thank you for doing such a wonderful job in selling my property. This was the first time I have been through this experience and I was unsure of how to negotiate the process from interstate. However all I had to do was send one email to set the process in motion. From there on, you took care of the rest.
Selling my property was a lot easier and quicker than I imagined. You were friendly, easy to deal with and made the process quite painless. I appreciated being kept up to date about the latest developments and had a feeling of confidence in your ability that you knew what you were doing and were advising me on the best course of action. The outcome was that you obtained the best possible price for the property.
Damien, altogether you provided a very professional service and I would be happy to recommend your services to others who are considering selling a property.
Just a line to thank you for the excellent service I had received regarding the sale of my former house.
I would also be grateful if you would also extend those wishes to your colleagues who were also very supportive during which, as you know can be a stressful time.
Happily, now I am settled into my new house and enjoying being so close to my family. It is such a joy to have my grandchildren so near now.
Once again, sincere good wishes to your team and further success for the future.
Recently we utilized the services of licensed estate agent Adrian Robinson for the sale of our Kangaroo Flat property.
We were extremely impressed with Adrian’s outstanding professionalism from initial interaction through to completion of sale. Adrian’s ongoing communication with us far exceeded our expectations and previous experiences with other estate agents. We were particularly delighted with Adrian’s fabulous level of integrity and consistent friendly nature.
We would highly recommend Adrian to any prospective client wishing to purchase or sell a property.
Please accept this letter as a token of my appreciation with the successful sale of my home. You showed great compassion in the fact that it was my home for 21 years and not just a house.
Although the market was not very kind to us initially, you were always positive that it would take just that right person and never gave up and were there to support me through doubts, for which I am very grateful.
It was your positive attitude towards my home and your non-pushy manner during our initial meeting which impressed me the most and why I chose you and BRE to sell my home.
My thanks also for assisting me to purchase a property off the plan and enjoy watching the progress of my new home on a weekly basis.
I am pleased to provide this letter of appreciation and testimony on behalf of my mother - June Bennie – in the sale of her referenced property.
My mother and I – and our entire family – are most satisfied with the entire process that involved your firm, from receipt of your submission to settlement in late May 2011.
I have interacted directly with you on behalf of my mother. You have been most professional, ethical, accessible and responsive and have left me in no doubt at all times, that you have been committed to delivering the best possible outcome for my mother.
You were most prompt and informative with your initial submission; realistic in your assessment of the properties worth but no less committed in pursuing the best outcome; patient in your explanations of requirements and procedures; timely and informative in your ongoing communications; very strategic and appropriately tactical with your advice and, highly diligent in delivering a most satisfactory outcome within a very short period of time.
My mother June interacted with you and your staff during site visits – but more particularly, she enjoyed and appreciated the kind interaction provided by Amanda of your office. Mum found Amanda – and you and your staff – to be extremely polite, respectful and helpful in her circumstances. She always felt at east in the presence of your staff. Any arrangements that Amanda made were always pre-arranged at Mum’s convenience and presented no inconvenience whatsoever to her. Mum was overwhelmed when finally visited by Amanda and yourself to bring your successful engagement to a conclusion.
We have no hesitation in recommending Bendigo Real Estate to any prospective vendor.
Thank you once again for looking after my Mum – her real estate interests and her personal needs.
John Bennie for June Bennie
I write this reference for Nekti Tzouroutis with pleasure.
Nekti has represented Grant and myself on not just selling property but also purchasing property. We are extremely happy with the results and service that we have received from Bendigo Real Estate.
Nekti was never pushy in selling our home and was always courteous and gave us positive feedback. We never felt pressured and decisions were left up to us. We achieved an outstanding result with the sale of our home and are greatly appreciative to Nekti and the team at Bendigo Real Estate. We are only too happy to recommend the services of Nekti and the team.
Kelly and Grant Penno
I am writing this reference due to the great service and professionalism that was forwarded to me while selling my property. Bendigo Real Estate has managed my investment property for the previous nine years and selling was a simple decision to retain the services of BRE and Senior Sales Consultant, Nekti Tzouroutis.
Nekti took the time to find out my needs and answered all of my questions. He then tabled a very competitive offer and demonstrated my best interests through clear and concise communication.
Nekti completely understood and carried out all of my requirements for a successful sale. Also his knowledge of the local area ensured that my return was maximised and property sold with minimal hassle or hindrance.
I would like to extend my thanks to Nekti and team and have no hesitation in recommending the professional services within BRE.
Thank you so much for the professional and caring approach you had regarding the sale of my property in Quarry Hill a few months ago. Your input and assistance throughout the process during the year was greatly appreciated by me at the time and portrays a very high standard of professionalism by your agency, Bendigo Real Estate, in Queen Street, Bendigo, but particularly by yourself, Paul. You listened to my input as well as advising me continually when asked how various aspects of the sale should proceed. You were available at the end of the phone when needed and I had questions about how to proceed at times. Although a director at Bendigo Real Estate, you interacted with the ordinary person in the property market such as myself as I am sure you did with business people or developers, and I thank you for that.
Thanks for bringing Matt Gretgrix along at the beginning and having him available when you were elsewhere, a good choice of staff member by your senior team with a lot of thought going into his appointment. He was great to work with and I would like you to wish him well in his future employment with Bendigo Real Estate. Thanks also for helping me through all the Open For Inspection appointments and your feedback following same.
I will willingly provide a reference in writing or over the phone to anyone considering engaging Bendigo Real Estate and you, Paul, in particular as I know they will be in good hands. You are also a very presentable and engaging gentleman in the real estate business which is equally as important as having knowledge of the various legal and business areas of the business.
Thanks to all your very friendly staff including at reception as they are the first line of communication in any business. Basically at the end of the day, I could not have had a nicer group of people working with me and for me.
Congratulations also to yourself, Paul, Matt and Nekti for participating in Movember, a great way to keep the men in our lives business or otherwise, healthy and on their feet. I have to say, Nekti wins the “gold medal” for his stunning goldfields style moustache!
We would like to sincerely thank you and the team from Bendigo Real Estate for the professionalism that you displayed when selling our home in December 2011. We would not hesitate in referring our family and friends to you as you have provided us with an outstanding service and result.
From our first meeting we knew that you were the right agent, with whom we could sell our home. Our aim when selecting an agent was to choose someone whom we would enjoy dealing with, someone that we could trust and ultimately someone that we knew that buyers could relate to.
You have always been very approachable, reliable, honest and enthusiastic, qualities that we believe to be extremely important when building professional relationships and selling homes. Your communication with us throughout our selling journey was exceptional. The way in which you liaised and communicated with us and our potential buyers certainly limited our stress. We believe that your dedication and experience ensured a timely and smooth sale of our home. We could not be happier. We are very satisfied customers and have thoroughly enjoyed working with you to achieve our goal.
Kelly and Duane McCuskey
If you're thinking of selling your home, I would highly recommend Damien O'Shannessy from Bendigo Real Estate.
My husband and I recently sold our home with Damien and we couldn't be happier.
We couldn't have asked for someone more professional, reliable, honest with exceptional customer service. The team at Bendigo Real Estate always updated us along the way on how everything was progressing. Our home sold within 4 weeks! Faster than we both had imagined.
We will always recommend Bendigo Real Estate to anyone who is purchasing a new home or selling their own. Selling your home can be stressful and hard work, with Damien and the team from Bendigo Real Estate it was a very memorable and enjoyable experience.
You were wonderful
Angie and Tony
We would like to thank you for all of your help with the recent sale of our home in Epsom. It has enabled us to move on to the next phase in our lives. You and the team at Bendigo Real Estate were open and honest with us every step of the way, and always kept us well informed. You are always easy to contact and to talk to. We will be recommending you and the Bendigo Real Estate team to all of our friends and family.
All the best for the future, Damien
Regards, Rodney and Donna Baldock
I am writing this letter to you to thank you for your assistance recently with the sale of my property at 9 John Street, White Hills.
You have dealt with the sale in a professional manner, ensuring that I was kept up to date with what was happening at all times, dealing immediately with any concerns I may have had.
I have no hesitation in recommending you and your team to any prospective buyers/sellers.
Regards, Lyn Fotheringham
I entered the market in search for a new home for myself and my two children, and having built my first home, I was quite nervous about the process, especially considering I was doing it on my own. I enquired on line about a nice house, and Damien O'Shannessy called me back within a couple of hours to ask when would suit me to have a look through the property. From the moment I walked in I knew it was the house I was going to make mine and my children's home, and just 6 weeks later I picked up the keys and moved in.
Damien and the team at Bendigo Real Estate were only too accommodating, ensuring I knew the moment the vendors accepted my offer, making special appointments for me to show the place off to my family and friends even after the deal was done, and keeping in regular contact to make sure I was comfortable with how the transaction was going.
I would recommend dealing with BRE in a heartbeat, and whilst I hope to not have to deal with them any time soon as I can't ever imagine leaving my new home, I will certainly be contacting them again if the need arises.
We Christine and Leonard Bergin would like to sincerely thank Adrian Robinson from Bendigo Real Estate for the quick and proffessional sale of our home. We found Adrian to be experieced, honest and extremely easy to deal with and were very impressed with his communication to us all through the sale. We would highly recommend Adrian to anyone looking at purchasing or selling their property.
TO Adrian our bigest thanks for a great job well done.
CHRISTINE AND LEONARD BERGIN

Should you be looking to engage an agent to sell your property we have no hesitation in recommending Adrian Robinson to you.
After listing our home with Adrian in late 2011 we had some early offers that unfortunately didn't pan out because of some building issues that were brought to light that we were unaware of. It would have been easy for us to have become discouraged but Adrian's professional conduct and perseverance kept us on track and we were happy to have sold our house by early 2012.
We believe that Adrian's work, with what could have been a difficult sell, showed his true “mettle” as an experienced real estate agent. Should we ever have the need in the future for an agent, we would definitely use Adrian.
Helen and Shannon Byrne
I am writing to you today, to congratulate Bendigo Real Estate in its entire efforts when selling our property recently, in particular Nekti Tzouroutis. The selling of real estate is often a very stressful situation, but we found Nekti exceptionally courteous, professional and often at times went above and beyond what was expected of him as our agent. The entire process was smooth, uncomplicated and easy. We were always well informed and without a doubt would recommend Nekti and BRE to others seeking any assistance in the selling or buying of real estate in the future. We sincerely thank you for a job well done and for making what would normally be a daunting process into a pleasurable experience. We certainly look forward to maintaining our association with you in the future.
Kind regards, Ben Penrose and Ange Dalton.
I'd just like to thank you all, especially Adrian for selling my and my family's house so quick, and for such a fantastic price. He did so much work to get us out extremely quick, and helped out so much. He was such a lovely man, both over the phone and in person.
Thank you again
More than appreciated!
Hey Matt, We both want to thank you for your fantastic work throughout the whole process with Brentwood. The things that we really did appreciate were how you always got back to me, even if it was a short text reply, it was appreciated. You have great personality and your willingness to go over and above to help people, that's what will make you a great sales person. We would definitely use your services again whether it be to look for another house or sell a house.
We wish you all the very best in your real estate career, keep being you and you will go far.
All the best & thanks again.
