"I presented Ben Bate with my holiday house on 8th December 2018. I knew there were quite a few problems. The development application had expired and the building was well run down and hardly in a state to live in. Ben Bate was happy to take on the challenge and, thinking it may be attractive to a local builder, we asked for a high price of $460,000. From this exercise we received an offer of $400,000. We rejected this offer thinking that at this early stage we had not tested the market and we reduced the price to $430,000. After two weeks without any response we reduced the price to $400,000, at which price with a few minor adjustments we sold. Ben Bate kept me well informed all the way, keeping me updated on all the inspections with them and recommendations, until a sale eventuated. I would congratulate them on their persistence, their ease of communication and their well balanced recommendations. Yours sincerely, David Kerrigan. "
"Thank you team for the great job you did on selling our apartment, especially to Aiden who answered all my stupid questions and making the whole process easy and stress free. Thanks again and Happy Easter, regards Kitty. "

"The sale of our property sadly ends our relationship with Ben Bate Real Estate. From the beginning when we were looking to buy we felt completely at ease with your staff and their professionalism. After purchasing we had no hesitation in renting the property through your office and then when eventually we came full circle and decided to sell you obtained a high sales price, a testament to your success. Thank you for all you and your staff have done."

"Belinda was representing the vendor in our recent rural property purchase. From the first meeting she presented as a very knowledgeable, engaging and professional person. She was able to intelligently answer all our queries in relation to buying a rural property and was very fair, accommodating and honourable throughout the whole buying process making it a very pleasant experience. We are extremely happy with our purchase, even though Belinda was able to negotiate a very good deal for the vendor. We would highly recommend her as a trusted agent for any prospective property vendors or purchasers."

"Belinda was so easy to deal with and answered every question we had. She was quick to respond to emails and phone calls and made the whole process reasonably stress free. We would highly recommend Belinda to all of our friends and family!"

"Excellent personal skills - I am not always a relaxed person but I felt I was talked to and not at. My house took about 7 months to sell but I know that could have been due to a number of factors - moving into the Winter months; a garden that had its peculiarities and there was a large area of 'Council strip' to mow. Anyway, Belinda maintained personal contact and I appreciated the feedback and general encouragement. I considered taking the house off the market for a brief period but I did not consider changing Real Estate agent.
By way of a small history - I put my former residence on the market a couple of years ago and then took it off rather quickly. Belinda maintained contact with me and I never felt judged for that or pressured in regard to choosing Ben Bate in any future decision."
"We expected that it would take years to sell our property but using knowledge of the market and judicious advertising Ben Bate Real Estate found the perfect buyer in just months. From start to finish of the process Ben and his staff guided, advised and informed us making the difficult task of selling a property run smoothly and efficiently. We would always recommend Ben Bate real Estate to anyone thinking of selling in the Eurobodalla district."

"I had to sell my parents house and had no time to devote to it. Aiden understood and managed the whole process for me. I think my entire input after the interview was 6 phone calls, the last one telling me that it was sold for what we wanted. Thanks Aiden, you deserve this recommendation."
"We were very happy having Aiden as our agent to buy this property. He was amicable and informative without being pushy which allowed us time to explore the various properties that he showed us in our price range. As we were travelling from another area, on the short notice that we gave him, Aiden also went the 'extra mile' in showing us properties at the end of a very busy day. Aiden also kept us informed as to the progress of the property we wanted to buy which enabled us to finally secure it."
