I found Just Real Estate great to work with. I couldn’t have been more pleased. The extra effort Just put into selling the property was great. They even made sure our little dogs were not stressed when inspection times came around. They extended thier days many times to fit in with us and also for clients looking through our property. I have no hesitation in recommending Just Real Estate to anyone. A good final outcome. Thanks

You recently sold my Mum’s house at a time that was difficult and hectic for all of us as we were relocating Mum to an aged care facility in Queensland.
I wanted to thank you for the extra effort you showed and certainly your professionalism and courtesy in conducting your business. You and your team were totally involved in the process; they all visited the house and had first-hand knowledge of the premises.
I made things harder for you by setting a very short deadline for all transactions to be completed and your team handled each request with a positive ‘can do’ attitude. Not only did you get right behind the advertising program but you negotiated a price better than we expected considering the housing market was still depressed.
As we are not far away from final settlement I thought I would extend my thanks to you and your team one more time.
It was a pleasure meeting you.

I used Barry as a Buyer’s Advocate two weeks ago for a commercial property we purchased at auction. Barry researched comparable sales prior to the auction and advised the current market value so we knew how much we were comfortable bidding up to. He also attended the auction and bid for us. In the end we were successful and we paid well under what we were willing to pay, all thanks to Barry. I have also referred clients to Barry and he’s worked wonders for them too. If you’re looking to purchase a commercial or residential property you need to have someone with Barry’s wealth of experience your side. David Thurmond

Your communication, including weekly email updates, has kept us informed every step of the way and your willingness to assist us in purchasing a new property is most appreciated.

Dear Barry We would just like to say thank you for selling our property which in this economic climate would not have been easy.
We really appreciate the time and trouble you took to get the sale, and even when things were not looking good you soldiered on.
We would not have any hesitation in recommending you to anyone looking for a good real estate agent.
Yours sincerely Eddie and Freda Farrall I cannot thank you enough for your efficient and prompt manner with which you handled the sale of my property in Berwick last month. We had a short timeline and you pulled it off 100%. You understood my needs and delivered me your expertise and professionalism. I believe your experience, people skills, enjoyment with what you do, and satisfaction seeing both parties happy with the sale/purchase of a property is the key to your success. Added to this is your friendly and comfortable manner, communication with you remained constant no matter what day of the week or time in the evening, so I was able to keep a finger on the pulse. Your work was never just the time spent in the office, and I really, really appreciated that. At times it would seem that I was your only client, you were so committed to me, but of course that was not the case. Your negotiation skills are fantastic, and again you showed your experience in this regard. I have no hesitancy whatsoever in recommending you to anyone else that I know, or don’t know, who may be selling, buying their home in the area in the future. You are awesome! Once again, I am exceptionally grateful to you with the speed and efficiency of the sale and the friendship we developed over this sale period time. Drop in for a cuppa anytime you are at the Island again! Kind regards,

To Whom It May Concern It is with great pleasure that my husband and I write this letter of recommendation for real estate agents, Just Real Estate. We met with Barry for advice on the sales of our house and were so impressed by his professionalism, we entrusted him to act as our seller agent and to list our home for sale. From the beginning we experienced top-notch realty expertise, from the numerous sets of real estate documents, photos, marketing and the updates on how Barry and his team were going with the sale of our house (not easy as we had moved interstate). We were very pleased with the manner in which our home was listed, presented and shown to prospective buyers. Just Real Estate sold our home with in 5 days of listing the house for sale for above asking price. We therefore highly recommend Just Real Estate for any real estate needs. Kind Regards Rebecca and Justin Bowler

To Whom It May Concern, It has been a real pleasure to deal with Barry Erlenwein from ‘Just Real Estate’. He explained the whole process thoroughly and made the exercise of selling the property seamless. He was at all times very professional yet friendly and approachable. I had full confidence in his skills, advice and expertise as a Licensed Estate Agent. He successfully secured a buyer for my property in a short period of time and negotiated a price which reflected the correct market value. I would not hesitate to recommend ‘Just Real Estate’ to anyone looking at buying, selling or managing their property. He also has an efficient and outstanding support team who manages my rental properties. You will be in good hands. Yours Sincerely A. Lam

Hi Barry, Yes we are aware how the time has flown! We have already passed on our satisfaction with your service Barry, but others are not as sure of what they want as we were. Nor do they have their act together to get the ball rolling. We certainly have given others food for thought. I am delighted to say you have given us the service we expect from professionals. Our experiences have not always been very positive in the past. We have had a fair amount of experience over the years with our investment properties. We were delighted with your service, professionalism and follow up. Your recommendations we also followed and that also was excellent service and advice. In all, a most positive experience in buying which makes the whole process a pleasure. We are settled, happy here and enjoying the life style we anticipated. Many thanks Barry to you and your Staff. Regards Jan and Mike

On behalf our my family, I sincerely thank you for what has been an incredible and easy experience in the successful sale of our property at 13 Belle Circuit Berwick. We’d had many dealings with numerous estate agents in the area prior to meeting you in January and were very underwhelmed by the real estate companies and their agents we’d encountered. What made you stand out from the pack was your professionalism, easy to deal with nature, honesty and integrity. We knew from our first encounter with you that we felt comfortable and confident that you’d do everything within our best interests to ensure a positive experience and successful sale of our property. We’ve been delighted with the whole end to end sale process including:
• the way in which you’ve communicated to us regularly, reports issued, keeping us in the loop at all stages
• marketing our property in a way that has ensured optimum presentation of our property via professional photo’s and written descriptions (superb!)
• advertising methods selected – multi online websites, newspaper articles, emails
• contacting potential buyers on your database
• Open for inspections – kerbside direction boards in the area’s making it easy for buyers to find our place, flags on board, notices displayed at entrance (I’ve never seen any other real esate agent do this before!) and ID details taken
Overall, an outstanding sales and marketing campaign that has resulted in an outstanding sale result (and price) that has simply overwhelmed us. To say we’re over the moon with the entire experience is an understatement. I hope that as many people as possible who are wishing to sell their home and experience a stress-free and positive selling experience, find you and Just Real Estate. Now that we’ve brought a home in Drouin and moving in late June, we’d like to offer that if you’re in the Drouin area, please drop in for a cuppa and say hello. Keep doing what it is you’re doing – you’ve got the market covered with your unique style! It’s been a pleasure dealing with you. All the best Cheers,

Hi Barry, I want to thank you for your professionalism in selling our house in Berwick. We were referred to you by an ex colleague who bought a house off you and said you really tried hard to get a top price for the seller who they bought the house off and that impressed him immensely. When giving us a valuation on our property you were professional, helpful, genuine & trustful. Compared to the other agents we met you were like a “breath of fresh air”. Your follow up was sensational, you kept us informed on a regular basis and you delivered what you promised. In the end with offers on our property in the first three days of marketing the property we got an offer we couldn’t refuse that exceeded our expectations and were wrapped. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anybody that is considering selling their property so thanks heaps for your help from two happy vendors. Regards Craig & Leonie Bradshaw.

To Steve, Barry, James and all the staff at Just Real Estate, Just a short note to say a very Big Thank you for all of your assistance that you have given us in purchasing our first home together. You have made the process easy and each little thing that you have done just keeps adding to our excitement. Whether it’s been a query, or showing us through the property or discussing things with the current owners, nothing has been too difficult for your team. Please accept this little gift as our appreciation for everything that you have done. Regards and Thank you Glenn Stevens.

Dear Barry, We wish to thank you for the professional, friendly and dedicated approach towards the sale of our property. It is unfortunate that circumstances caused us to put our dreams on hold for a while. We will be back! Kim and Rod Styles Re: 4 Aitken Court Berwick As we’re moving towards final settlement of our property, I would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation of the time and effort that you put into selling our property. We would like to commend you and your sales staff for the friendly and professional manner by which you handled the transaction. We consider that it was an advantage to deal with a local firm who understand the market. Selling a house is a very stressful experience, especially when the market is so unpredictable. I would like to thank you for making it a less stressful experience for us. You showed us commitment and ongoing confidence that the house would sell. You also kept us up to date each week with what was happening, who was coming through and the comments that were being made about the house. You did not push us into making any changes but gave us valuable advice regarding improving the way we could sell. Thank you for your perseverance and ongoing commitment. Thanks again for making our sale a pleasurable one. Regards, Cathy Pearson

Barry,
Down the years, we have tried many different agencies. After talking to my friend, Bob Morrison, he recommended you. Your professional approach amazed both Violet and I, so we had no hesitation about letting you sell our property. This was the best decision we ever made. Within 3 days of going on the market the house was under contract, and sold within 10 days. We were delighted the way your staff handled the whole deal. Barry was courteous and pleasant at all times and nothing was a problem to him. Also conveyancing and photography was handled by you. Again, from the bottom of my heart. Thank you. Alan and Violet Mitchell.

Hi Anthony,
Just wanted to say after the saga we’ve gone through with the other agent to sell our place, we were absolutely delighted with both yours and Barry’s attention to the selling process of our property, continuous updates to keep us informed, and the fast moving from listed to sale to unconditional. Now we just have the final settlement step, and we’re in the all clear. The main difference with your service is that you made us feel informed, you did not make our place out to be worthless We’re very grateful for both your help. Thank you. Warm regards,
 Angela and Anthony Holbery I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help and support in the sale of my property.
I found you to be a person of integrity with commitment to her client. Chris is hoping to sell her property sometime this year we look forward to you representing the Sale again.
I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any potential client.

Regards,
Terry Dowsett Dear Barry, and Team members of Just Real Estate,
I wish to thank you all for the kindness and excellent service in selling my home. Barry was helpful and very honest about the value of the house and after two weeks we sold higher than expected. It was a very pleasant experience in selling my whom with Just Real Estate Professional Team Thank you again,

Your professionalism, integrity and honesty from our first meeting at Appraisal through to signing the Contract of Sale, was second to none.

Carol and myself would like to thank you very much for all the support and assistance you gave us when selling our home.
Your professionalism and dedication and trustworthiness to us were second to none.
It was comforting to know as a vendor that we were in good hands. We felt the potential buyers you showed through were genuine buyers and not just people to look through to make up the numbers to impress us, also the added bonus was selling our home in one week from listing. Being a resident and working in our area for over 17 years was a great plus as well. We would recommend to anyone wanting to sell their home to give Just a call. King Regards,

At; Mr Barry Erlenwein of Just Real Estate Barry, we would like to thank you and your staff at Just Real Estate, for your pre sale advice ,and for the way you all handled , what at times, was a difficult sale of our home in Pakenham. We also liked the personal way you conducted your business, without any push. We are both very pleased with the end result. We have, and would have no problem referring anyone to your business. Kind regards Mick and Fran Pakenham

To whom it may concern: My wife Dianne and I placed out house on the market with Just Real Estate. It was sold in 16 days exceeding our expectations. The price attained was what we expected and what Just’s advised it would endeavour to achieve. The Service we received from this Agency was far beyond what was expected and far beyond what we have experienced when selling 3 previous properties. We would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Barry Erlenwein and his young agent Anthony to anyone who was considering placing their home on the market. Barry, we wish you every success for the future. Kind Regards Trevor & Dianne Fry

by Trevor & Dianne Fry

We are so glad that we chose to sell our family home through Just Real Estate. The level of professionalism and attention has been amazing. From our first meeting with Barry, to signing the contract, the whole process has been made as stress free as possible. Barry explained every aspect of the sale to us in simple and easy to understand terms so we knew exactly where we stood the whole time. Every question we had was followed up promptly, nothing was too frivolous and Barry was always approachable.
The personal touches made by the team at Just have been fantastic, little things like always being contactable, plenty of feedback after each inspection, a genuine interest in how we were feeling during the process, and sincere happiness for us when the sale went through has made all the difference to us. Little things like a quick phone call to just “touch base” with us during the week were further proof that we were important to her and not just another sale.
We could tell they were always working extremely hard to ensure we received the best possible offer on our home and that our interests were foremost.
We have no hesitation in recommending the team at Just Real Estate when selling (or buying) your home.
Duncan and Sharon Wingrave I wish to thank Just Real Estate on their very professional approach and speedy sale of the above property, we where surprised at the pace of the sale which was less than 1 week and above the estimated valuation quoted of the property. We wish to thank your company for swift, professional and friendly conclusion. Yours Truly,

Dear Barry, We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff at Just Real Estate – Berwick for all your hard work and to walk with us every step of the way. It is a true pleasure to have you as our Estate Agent, not only to help us sell our home but to help us find our new home, so we can continue to build our family. Before making the final decision to chooseJust Real Estate to represent us in the current market, we did shop around. We had a few evaluations done, in which we found you were the best value for money and most importantly, Friendly with a REAL Attitude. After having a few agents around, we found a few of these agents did undervalue our home. This questioned us, “are we selling at the right time?” Luckily we made the correct decision. Just Real Estate – Berwick did not only sell our Home in just 2 Weeks but at the price we hoped for. If we had gone with the other agents we would have lost $40,000 in profit. Being a young family, $40,000 has helped us establish a little further in life. Thank-you for coming out to show our home on a ‘Public Holiday’, most agents would not have done so. In result, selling our home in just 2 weeks!!!! We will recommend you to our family and friends; you are our ‘First Choice’ in Real Estate Representation. We are more than happy with your efforts made for us & extremely happy with the results achieved. Yours Sincerely MR. & MRS. D.S

Dear Barry and staff at Just Real Estate, Josie and I would like to sincerely thank you, Barry, for all of your advice and professional assistance you have given us over the many years we resided in the Berwick area. During this time, as our family and circumstances changed, you have successfully sold 4 of our properties, the last of which was our Beaconsfield residence. This has now allowed us to purchase a property in Perth where we intend to stay for awhile. From our first meeting with you with the sale of our first house, we were impressed in the way you genuinely cared about us as vendors and made sure we were fully aware of what was happening in the sale process. You definitely left your mark as we have used you for each of our subsequent sales, all of which achieved or bettered what you said they would. We also wish to thank the team at Just Real Estate for the management of our property during the time it was rented. Again the professionalism of the staff and the communication at all times was very pleasing for both of us. We strongly recommend Barry Erlenwein to anyone who is selling or managing a property. He is a no fuss, professional who will keep you informed while doing everything possible to get the best outcome for you the vendor. Hope to see you in Perth someday Barry. Appreciatively and with the warmest wishes Colin and Josie Boadle

Just Real Estate Berwick handled the sale of our Narre Warren home and we could not have been more pleased.
Prior to making our decision on who we would use to sell our home, we had a number of local agents appraise our home. Just was the only one who provided us with the confidence that could provide the service we needed. Just was upfront and honest in the appraisal and did not try the “hard sell” approach many of the other agents did. In fact, Just was the only agent to not ask us “what we thought our home was worth”, or ask for an incremental agent’s fee based on the sale price – shouldn’t all the agents work at getting you the best price without an added incentive?
Our home is very unique and as such required a targeted and very personal marketing approach. The team at Just provided us with that and we were able to sell our home with days of it being listed.
 Having a very young baby in the house meant getting prepared for selling was quite difficult, so Just was extremely helpful in ensuring all the necessities were sorted out promptly and efficiently.
We would highly recommend Just Real Estate to anyone wishing to sell their home. Yours Sincerely,
 Shane Mercuri & Sally-Ann Nadj

After months of “umming and erring”, I finally decided to sell my home of 10 years, with Just Real Estate. Initially, I had contacted other well known real estate agents in my local area but they were all very quick to try signing me up straight away. They had also strongly suggested renovations to the house prior to sale, of which I couldn’t really afford, being a single working mum raising two children. Feeling disheartened with it all, I happened to see a “Sold by Just Real Estate” sign on a house, on my way from the local supermarket in my area and decided to give them a go. Just Real Estate stood out above the rest because they actually listened to what I wanted from the sale (and not the other way around like the others). He made the whole process of selling my home virtually painless. He regularly updated me with feedback from potential buyers. I highly recommend Just Real Estate, if you are thinking of selling your home, even if your home is not in the Berwick area – because that’s what I did, and I have never regretted it since. I would also like to thank all the hard working team at Just Real Estate who has supported all the other “bits and pieces” that happened in the background, before, during and after the sale of my home. Thank you Just Real Estate,
Sylvia

Dear Barry (and Staff at Just Real Estate), After finally settling down at our new residence, the first opportunity that came our way, we decided to sit down and express our appreciation and gratitude for all your fantastic and tireless efforts and hard work that especially you Barry and your team put in to make the arduous task of successfully selling our property in Berwick. Barry, there were times that we thought that we were never going to sell the property, but true to your loyalty to us as vendors (and resulting in a great friendship) your professional approach and heartwarming character and determination, you did not let the Global Financial Crisis, the down turn of the housing market or the general uncertainty and apathy of the real estate market place get you down. You worked extremely hard to keep us motivated and our spirits high when at times we were ready to give up. Everything imaginable and unimaginable was thrown at us as vendors and you as selling Agent ie. the GFC, interest rate rises to the tune of 7 in an 8 month period!!! – enough to scare purchasers away, but you persevered. And not to mention the floods and other environmental impacts in our communities but also the rapidly rising cost of living and massive job losses. All those doom and gloom and hardship stories we out there every time you listened to the news or opened up a newspaper. But fortunately for us – none of that dampened your spirits – you are a true champion. It was your hard work , effort and belief in our property that we were able to achieve a priced that was consistent with the realestate market and that was a reasonable price. We couldn’t ask for you to have done anymore – you exhausted all avenues and put in a mammoth amount of time, resources both financial and personal, energy and effort throughout the marketing and selling process. You tirelessly and always, with a smile and full of energy conducted the opens each week. You never once told us to give up or market the property at a ridiculous price just to get a sale (as other agents would and have done and did do in the past). You always listened to our needs and concerns and were always supportive throughout the whole marketing/selling campaign. Given the tough market as it was, still resulted in getting our property sold without unnecessary stress or inconvenience to us which is what we all wanted. In closing, we have no hesitation in recommending your company to all our friends, workmates and relatives, as we both truly believe, that no future vendor or purchaser will ever regret employing your company. It is very rare these days to find a real estate agency with such honest and dedicated morals and beliefs in their work with their clients. All we can say to all vendors and prospective vendors as well as those in the market to purchase a property – You won’t find any better Real Estate Agency than Just Real Estate – they are NO. 1 We wish your company and yourself every success in the future. Again Barry, thank you for all your help, support and assistance and ultimately your sincerity and friendship – that of which will continue into the future. Anne and Andrew

The decision to sell your family home after 16 years is not an easy one, but finding a Real Estate Agent you can trust can prove to be just as difficult. It was important to us to find an agent with experience, local knowledge and a marketing plan to achieve our goal. Just Real Estate met all the criteria by providing us with professional, courteous and honest service, along with excellent communications throughout the entire process involved in selling our home. We sincerely thank Barry and his team at Just Real Estate for their hard work and assistance and would recommend their services to anyone considering selling or buying a property.

Dear Barry We are writing to thank you and your team for the professionalism and personal touch given when selling our home in Narre Warren. From the very beginning with the evaluation all the way to our handover date nothing has been too much of a hassle and your advice always sound. After living in the same house for 32 years the decision to sell and move on was, at times, emotional for us but thanks to your understanding and genuine empathy the process was made much easier for us. Thank you once again and we are more than happy to recommend you to others. Ray and Lavena Bligh
