This agent is our guardian angel and agent for the sale of land. This agent provided us with excellent services throughout the entire process for the sale of a piece of land in Eltham. We sought her services early in the process of subdividing a property in order to sell a section. She offered professional advice which proved critical to enabling us to make informed decisions over a period of time. She was supportive, knowledgeable and tireless. She made herself available to discuss and explain all aspects of the sale and provided guidance whenever we sought it. She kept us informed and up to date on all matters. We particularly appreciated her honesty, hard work, and personal warmth, from our first meeting right through to the successful sale.

This agent is the best. After looking for a property in Melbourne for several years, I became despondent in being able to find a property as a first time buyer that is affordable yet in a good area that is close to my family. This agent is a clear cut with excellent communication and a high amount of integrity which is what I needed to finally be able to trust the process of purchasing a home. She was able to show me a range of properties in my price range and realistically explained out all pros and cons so I was able to make an informed decision. I have recommended her already to friends as I am very happy with my purchase.

Excellent service. I wish to extend my sincere thanks for your relentless efforts in achieving fantastic results across our property portfolio over the past couple of months. Your versatility in dealing with prospective buyers for our newly completed townhouses as well as our older style homes requiring attention was a key contributor in delivering such great sales results. Your extensive local knowledge and market awareness was clearly demonstrated to us by the manner in which you confidently approached the selling campaigns for each of our different properties and I am so glad we adopted your suggested approaches. I believe these worked in our favour tremendously and is suggestive of the level of experience and professionalism you adopt in each of your campaigns – thank you. I also wish to extend my thanks for keeping us well-informed on market conditions and the level of interest received on our properties following each inspection, this was always followed up with the timely provision of detailed & consistent reports which fueled our confidence each week in your ability in delivering strong outcomes. Your level of communication and patience in dealing with some of our longer term tenants, also greatly assisted in ensuring they were also engaged in the process which again really assisted with property presentation and ultimately great outcomes. Once again, thank you for all efforts and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending you to others.

I was fortunate to secure the support and assistance of this agent in the sale of my property in Nillumbik Shire. Her expertise, market understanding and counsel ensured that I was very well-informed throughout the sales campaign. This agent’s professionalism in her treatment of me and in her advocacy of the property to potential buyers was outstanding. This agent's enthusiasm, commitment and determination are testament to her reputation within the sector and the local region.

229 days ago

This agent was an absolute pleasure to work with, a consummate professional who made every effort to keep us updated and informed throughout the sales campaign. This agent was tenacious and unrelenting in securing the best possible price for our property working hard right up to the point of sale. This is the second time we have worked with this agent and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone wanting a successful outcome. Thanks.

229 days ago

This agent is a fantastic agent. This is the first time we have sold a property and we were nervous about the whole process. We found this agent to be very honest and realistic about our expectations, and she delivered a result at the top end of our price range. We never had to wonder about where the interest level was, as this agent kept in regular contact and we developed a very good relationship. We would get this agent to sell our next house if possible.

Pleasure to deal with. Looking to buy my first home, I met this agent for an inspection of a property. She gave me all the information about the property and the suburb due to her local knowledge of the area as I was slightly unfamiliar with the suburb. The thing I most regard was her communication via email due to my interstate work, she kept me in the loop. Thanks to this agent. Keep up the good work.

229 days ago

Great agent. To be honest we' had basically lost faith with Barry Plant. We were very ready to move to a new agent - but this agent saved the day. Property was sold within 48 of hrs of this agent taking over the account. Thanks to this agent.

My family and I have recently completed the sale of our home using the services of Barry Plant (Eltham). The agent who handled the sale was this agent . We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to this agent for all her hard work in selling our property for a price we were very happy with. From the first time we dealt with this agent, we found her to be very informative, honest, polite and full of so much positive energy. We were very happy with the way our campaign was handled and the way this agent kept us up to date and informed at all times of our sales progress. We had a lot of confidence in this agent as she showed a great deal of professionalism and understanding of the Real Estate Market.

229 days ago

From our first meeting with this agent (before appointing her), she indicated areas to be addressed or altered in our home - just little things but things other agents didn't mention. This agent showed passion for her job. Unfortunately, we didn't have the clientele come through as strong as we had thought from contacts and enquiries were all in the lowest range. This proved stressful in the days leading to Auction. Thankfully, this agent was able to work with a Buyer to achieve sale prior to auction in our desired price range.

229 days ago

This agent was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and an absolute pleasure to deal with. This agent always made herself available and she kept us well-informed at each stage of the process addressing any concerns along the way. This agent was very engaging and she maintained regular contact with us and her communication was always meaningful and focused. We were impressed with this agent’s overall approach, her professionalism, property market expertise and her polite directness was always welcomed. We are extremely grateful to this agent for providing us with a positive and memorable experience. We have already recommended this agent to family and friends and we will continue to do so based on our flawless experience. If you are looking to buy a property, you need to join team to this agent. Thanks.

I have known this agent for approximately 10 years, she is a very active agent who never gives up until she is able to get the best possible result for her clients. I would highly recommend this agent to anyone wanting to buy or sell property.

This agent’s knowledge and experience greatly helped my husband and I through all the legal aspects of buying a house in an area we were unfamiliar with. We were very happy with the outcome, and would not hesitate to recommend this agent to other potential buyers.

We have just sold our home in Eltham and we were delighted with the result. This agent was our agent for the sale and she worked extremely hard across the four week campaign. She was enthusiastic, tenacious and highly professional through all of the stages of the campaign to sell the property. At the outset, she explained in detail what the process would be and that she would communicate at each step. She was true to her word and we were always kept informed. Her advice about the process, the presentation of the property and other related matters turned out to be spot on. Crucially, she managed final negotiations in a manner that achieved an excellent sale price, one that exceeded our expectations. Thanks to this agent.

229 days ago

This agent is an exceptional agent who offers an outstanding service. I couldn’t be more happy with the advice and support that I received from this agent during the sale of my property at Lower Plenty. This agent was able to accommodate my limited availability during very busy periods in my personal life and was very understanding of my circumstances. This agent’s advice on the sale of the property was exceptional and I was very happy with the final sale price achieved. This agent’s handling and advice on current tenants, body corporate and conveyancing was exceptional. I have no hesitation in recommending this agent to anyone who is selling a property. You will be happy with the service you receive and have no regrets.

229 days ago

This agent is the best. Our experience of working with this agent was extremely positive through the entire process. We were astounded by her incredible dedication, positivity and level of energy. This agent was very hands on and ensured our home was marketed beautifully. It was clear that this agent had a lot of local knowledge. We always felt this agent was very honest, direct and realistic. Ultimately, this agent working tirelessly to get us the best possible price for our home, and we were super pleased with the outcome. I will be recommending this agent to all my neighbours, friends and family as it was an absolute pleasure working with her.

229 days ago

Brilliant agent and personality – Outstanding work ethic. We can highly recommend this agent as a standout real estate agent. Her commitment to us as clients was above and beyond from our very first contact. She stayed in touch with us throughout the entire process (which only took less than 4 weeks) we sold our property remotely as we do not live in Melbourne and she took care of everything. Cleaners, furniture hire. An absolutely dependable agent with personality and an outstanding work ethic. I would use her services again without hesitation. Lower plenty seller.

Thanks to this agent. It has been such a pleasure dealing with this agent of Barry Plant Real Estate. We engaged her to sell our property in St. Helena and were very happy with the result obtained. This agent was always approachable, friendly, warm and had an air of authenticity about her which was refreshing. She always kept us informed and worked tirelessly with integrity, honesty and enthusiasm. Thanks to this agent for your dedication and efforts throughout the sales campaign. Wishing you all the very best and continued success.

This agent has made buying our first home easier. Right from the day I first inspected the property, this agent was very helpful and patient with the information we requested. Through the whole process, this agent was very responsive to all queries and ensured prompt communication between us and the vendor. Overall, it was a great experience going through the process of buying our first property with this agent assisting us through the many questions we had on the way.

229 days ago

A pleasure to deal with. From our first dealings with this agent, we were impressed with her enthusiasm and professionalism. The entire sale process was a pleasure, from tips to presenting our house for sale, through to the feedback and final sale result. We couldn’t wish for a better service and we would highly recommend this agent for anyone wishing to sell. Thanks to this agent.

229 days ago

A pleasure to deal with. We bought our house from this agent and she was a delight to deal with. She's tough to negotiate with as a buyer (which would be great if you're the seller) but she was always warm, courteous and understanding - right down through the last hurdle. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone.

229 days ago

Couldn't have been in better hands. We were so fortunate to have this agent help us sell our property. She had a great knowledge of the local area we lived in and very familiar with other properties within the vicinity. We found this agent open and honest, and were very impressed with her communication with us and her response time to any concerns or questions we had. She was also very considerate to our needs as a family, and was flexible and understanding and able to work around our routine with our children, with suitable inspection times, and the preparation of our property. We know she worked hard to get us the best possible outcome for our property and certainly worked long hours. We were thrilled with the result. We would highly recommend this agent.

229 days ago

Good experience. We recently purchased a home through this agent. I found her to be very effective in her communication with us. She was very honest and straightforward in her dealings with us. I think this delivered a great result for ourselves and the vendor.

229 days ago

I had the pleasure of working with this agent on 2 occasions in the last 12 months. On both occasions, I found this agent to be very knowledgeable in terms of prices for the area we sold in, as well as being available to speak with at any time of the day or evening, which was a blessing as I am a shift worker. This agent also showed real compassion and understanding throughout the whole time of both our sales. I would not hesitate in using this agent’s services again and would recommend this agent to my friends and family. Thanks.

229 days ago

Brilliant campaign, fantastic outcome. I just wanted to send a message and thank you for the work that you have done selling my parent's place. From the initial meeting with them to the point of sale, both your personal and professional service was impeccable. The price that you achieved on their behalf was amazing to say the least and your constant contact throughout the sale was comforting to both mum and dad. I have absolutely no hesitation in referring and recommending you to anyone selling their house.

222 days ago

This agent constantly kept in touch with ideas for us to prepare our house for sale. She provided feedback on open house visits. We never thought that she was devoting more time to her other vendors, she made us feel like we were her only customer.

This agent is a very hardworking knowledgeable agent, she is there to help you right from the start explaining everything, keeping you in the loop and is available to contact at anytime. I highly recommend this agent, she sold our house after first inspection something another local agent couldn't do after having our property for 4 months if you want your property sold, trust this agent Elthams No.1 Agent.

Congratulations to this agent. True to your word, you worked tirelessly for the best outcome to which we are absolutely thrilled. Thanks again, Barry Plant.

We dealt with this agent as vendors. From the very beginning, this agent gave us advice on how to best prepare our property for sale, linked us up with services we required, stayed in communication, followed up on how things were going and guided us through the whole sale process. Nothing was too difficult or too much trouble. We have found this agent to be an excellent, highly skilled professional with wonderful communication skills, who worked tirelessly to achieve the best results for us. We could not be happier with the service we received from this agent. We could not recommend this agent highly enough, we would not hesitate to engage her as our agent again.

As an interstate vendor, this agent championed the sale of our Melbourne property keeping us well-informed every step of the way and achieved a great result - highly recommended and thanks to this agent.

From the very first moment we met this agent, we knew she was the right person to sell our house, her attitude, knowledge and communication skills left nothing to be desired of, this proved to be correct as all went smoothly in the sale of our house and an excellent price was achieved. It was all thanks to this agent who made this possible.

How would I describe Young PIna? When I met this charming lady she was carrying a bundle of books which were about to spread all over the floor. Her comment to me was, "I have to be somewhere in 10 minutes so....." I said, "I have been told to meet you here and buy a house from you.." "OK right, which one....?" Within half an hour, I had filled out the paperwork, paid the deposit and was well on the way to having my home in Research. Make no mistake, this agent is not your softly spoken, ill-informed, run from a fly real estate agent. This agent has direct focus, demands positive results, provides informative communication and achieves the best price for her vendor. If you want something done, ask this agent. It may not happen absolutely immediately as she flies around in her whirlwind but it will happen. Many thanks to this agent, I would highly recommend selling and buying with you.

Great agent. This agent and Stuart were a pleasure to deal with and accommodated our work hours with private inspections. They were helpful, knowledgeable and prompt.

222 days ago

I have built, sold and purchased property for over 20 years and this agent was the most committed and trusting agent I have dealt with working for both me (purchaser) and the vendor. I had little knowledge of the Research area but her understanding of the potential of the property in the area and her dedication to the sale was admirable. I would have no issue in recommending this agent. Thanks.

222 days ago

This agent was outstanding in her commitment to selling our home. Our residence was particularly difficult to move and resulted in us securing this agent as our second agent. This agent's commitment to the sale was unwavering and her careful negotiating skills secured a price that we were pleased about.

222 days ago

I am so pleased I decided to trust this agent with the sale of my home. This agent was very professional and reliable. The advice this agent gave with the preparation for sale, sale process and even advice on purchasing a new home was invaluable. I was kept totally up to date with what was happening from photos through to sale, she was always punctual and true to her word. I am very pleased with her knowledge of the current and past markets, not to mention her negotiating skills. I highly recommend this agent for future sales and purchases of properties.

222 days ago

This agent was fantastic and exceeded our expectations in every way. She was professional, kind, and caring throughout the campaign. This agent gave us fantastic advice on preparing our home for sale and closely supervised the photos; the great presentation we achieved with her help was a key point in selling our home. She also has a great personality and we very much enjoyed her sense of humour and friendly nature. This agent worked hard to make the process easy for us (i.e., negotiating convenient inspection times, efficient and effective communication via phone calls and email, keeping us up to date with potential buyers), while achieving the best possible sale price.

222 days ago

My wife and I engaged this agent from Barry Plant Eltham to sell our home in St Helena. From our initial meeting to the sale of our home, this agent kept us informed at all stages. Her enthusiasm is fantastic and she was on top of the process at all times.

I am so glad we entrusted this agent to sell our beautiful home. From our first meeting, this agent always showed professionalism, compassion & genuine interest in what we wanted & didn't want in selling our home. She made a lot of guided suggestions without being over the top as some agents can be. She always kept us updated throughout the open for inspection period with feedback on interested buyers etc. In the end we were very happy with all the work and commitment this agent put into selling our home as well as the price we sold our home for. I would highly recommend this agent to my family and friends. Thanks.

222 days ago

This agent was the agent for the home I recently purchased. She was very helpful, both prior to auction and post sale. She was always easily contactable, and was willing to make herself available to show me through the premises outside of open for inspection times. Post sale, she liaised between parties in the lead up to settlement and has definitely gone the extra mile. Thanks to this agent.

222 days ago

My parents and I were very pleased with the sale of their property by this agent. This agent was super efficient, a fabulous communicator and a pleasure to deal with. She responded immediately and resolved any issues sensibly and quickly. She always went the extra mile and showed great empathy with my elderly parents as they were very anxious about selling their property. This agent was extremely knowledgeable and professional throughout the entire process. We appreciate the time and effort that was provided by this agent to securing a sale which exceeded our expectations. We were so confident about everything she did, she is now looking after the sale of my property. We would recommend her services to anyone, in fact my daughter and son in law are preparing their house for sale and will engage this agent to do this. A very big thanks to this agent and the Barry Plant team.

222 days ago

This agent worked exceptionally hard to get the sales for our property. Not just with the potential buyers but in the lead up when there were works to be completed to prepare for sale. She liaised with trades and kept a regular eye on the house for us. She is thoroughly recommended.

222 days ago

When considering an agent to sell my home, I relied on the excellent reputation of Barry Plant in our area and particularly this agent. I cannot speak highly enough of the dedication, attention to detail, advice, constant communication and assistant provided to me by this agent. The overall experience for me as a vendor was stress-free and above and beyond my expectations. This agent achieved a fantastic price for my home through sheer professionalism and communication and negotiation skills. If you are selling a home in Eltham don't go to anyone else. Thanks to this agent.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank this agent for the excellent service provided with the sale of my house in Karingal drive, Greensborough. This agent and Eltham Barry Plant team were outstanding in achieving the excellent results. This agent's professional guidance, honest advice and regular communication made the whole process much easier. I have no hesitation in recommending this agent and her team to anyone who needs a Real Estate Agent including managing properties and who values results and professionalism. Thank to this agent once again for your hard work.

222 days ago

We chose Barry Plant purely based on the relationship we formed with our agent, this agent. She was always available, professional, explained all our options and had our best interests at heart. We are extremely fussy clients and this agent shone. In the real world, real estate agents don't have such a good name, this agent is definitely the exception. We found her honesty and personal nature both refreshing and comforting. We would have no hesitation in recommending her.

222 days ago

We wish to express our appreciation and sincere thanks to this agent of Barry Plant Eltham. This agent is an enthusiastic person who clearly loves her job. We found this agent to be 100% committed to achieving the best outcome for us. We immediately liked this agent from the first time we met and she quickly gained our trust and friendship.

222 days ago

I would like to take this opportunity in thanking you for managing the sale of our home. It's always an intense and emotional time when selling a home and you were able to focus on the positives and direct us in the right way. You were always professional and personal at the same time. Made us feel confident and reassured. Although the house didn't sell at the auction, the same dedication to the sale was always there. When the house was sold, not only was it a relief but a certain satisfaction that the people who bought it loved it as much as we did. I have no hesitation in recommending this agent and the team at Barry Plant Eltham for their effort and professional know how in selling and looking after you during the sale of your home. Thanks.

222 days ago

This agent was an absolute pleasure to work with. Through buying my first home I had a lot to learn about the property market and sale process. This agent was patient and spent a great deal of time helping me understand the buying process and signing a contract of sale. I truly felt she invested a great deal of effort and time into making the process informative and a positive experience for me. She was very flexible with availability for house inspections, around the demands and obligations of my employment. I would happily recommend this agent to a friend or colleague who are thinking of selling property. I would tell them "Go see this agent, she really looked after me".
