Tony and Joy

We need to thank Belinda from Ben Bate Real Estate in Narooma. This house came to our attention. We were not in a position to look at the house personally through other commitments so Belinda offered to do a video walkthrough of the property. Based on this we made an offer on the property and later we were able to inspect the property in person and proceeded with the purchase.

Shane

Belinda is a rare thing in the real estate world, she is honest. I have both bought and sold properties over the years and always had success. A no nonsense attitude and get it done work ethic has alway impressed me. She has given me hard truths at times and always came up with solutions rather than problems. I recommend Belinda to anyone who is looking for honesty and not just what you want to hear.

Andrew

I had the unfortunate job of clearing my uncle's house to prepare for sale as he was moving into permanent care. Being from interstate I had no idea how to proceed. A quick visit to Ben Bate Real Estate made the process so easy. Ben was sympathetic of my situation and offered advice and support during the entire process. He recommended getting a professional team in to clean and present the house for sale. Once on the market the feedback from Ben Bate Real Estate was comprehensive and timely. Email contact with each viewing, weekly updates on interest in the property and regular phone calls kept me updated with significant news. Ben's market knowledge was spot on, getting a price exactly within his predictions. I would highly recommend Ben Bate Real Estate for a supported and professional service.

Andrew

Matthew

There is an old adage to describe a property in real estate "Location, location, location". But there should be one for real estate Agents. Something like "People, people people". Why? Because a good Agent should be able to connect and work with people for a successful outcome. This adage would sit very well with Ben Bate Real Estate. Their professionalism and clear ability to connect willing Buyers to the sale and work closely with the Vendor ensured an efficient and calm process with a successful result. Thank you Belinda and Ben. Job well done.

Clint

Long Distance Hero

Long Distance Hero. I was the executor of a deceased estate, and live 400km from Narooma. Ben and his whole agency were tremendously helpful with so much more than just the sale of the property - they also advised and arranged on things as diverse as furniture disposal, garden maintenance, conveyancing and cleaning. Communication was regular and comprehensive, and the advice on selling strategies and price guidelines timely and accurate. The professionalism displayed was excellent, but they were also very personable and I was able to rely on their experience and expertise with confidence. It was always a pleasant and comfortable conversation with any of the team, and made my long-distance responsibilities so much easier to fulfil. I recommend the agency without reservation, and with my gratitude for a job well done!

Sari

Home sold in a difficult market

My home (2 bedrooms) was offered for sale at the affordable end of the local market; we made one price reduction after a period of time in response to buyer feedback. My understanding is that the majority of inspections were with buyers looking in my price range, rather than "window shoppers". Sufficient notice of inspection requests was provided by the agent, which allowed for the home to be presented at its best. I received a follow-up call following each of the inspections. Happy to have secured a buyer at a reasonable sale price in a contracting market. All of the staff at Ben Bate Real Estate conducted themselves in a professional and courteous manner.

Greg

Very friendly, helpful and organised!

Very friendly, helpful and organised! Crystal chased up everything from initially contacting me about a potential sale, the price points, timelines, etc. I felt very comfortable in Crystals hands throughout the sale as she stayed in touch with updates regularly, which is a great asset for sellers. Her advice on scenario playouts with purchasers was a comfort as well. Thanks Crystal, keep up the great work.

A personal touch.

When my purchase was successful, he was very welcoming to Narooma. We enjoyed dining out at a local restaurant he recommended to celebrate.

Stephanie & Ryan

Professional

Professional. What pleased me most about Crystal was that she listened to what I told her I was looking for and we chose together houses to look at that might fit my criteria. She didn’t try to push houses that she wanted to sell. After each viewing she asked me what I did and didn’t like about the house so that she could better gauge what to show me and what not to show me. Crystal was at all times polite, respectful and friendly and not at all pushy, and she made sure she had most of the relevant information on hand to answer my questions. If she couldn’t answer the question there and then she not only said that she’d get me the information, she actually did! I could not have had a better, more professional or more pleasant experience during what can be a difficult and stressful experience.

Ross & Susan

 Thank you Ben Bate

Thank you Ben Bate. I could not be happier with my dealings with Ben. He is very genuine and sincere. I cannot thank Ben enough for the patience he showed me and my wife throughout this whole process. I feel he made a great effort to connect with me and showed care for my situation. He is very easy to talk to with prompt follow up from him and his staff (Some different agents in town didn’t even respond to my enquires about other properties and those properties are still on the market!) Ben is very knowledgeable about the local market and broader industry. Whilst I was the purchaser on this occasion, having sold property previously I would be more than happy to engage Ben to sell a property of mine and cannot recommend Ben Bate highly enough to anyone reading this review looking for an agent to sell their house. Thank you Ben Bate and Team.

Ben

Absolutely thorough and thoughtful

Absolutely thorough and thoughtful. Being an interstate buyer, Kath offered flexibility with viewing properties and was able to negotiate for us to accommodate to our schedules. She was extremely patient and always maintained open communication along the way. She was a great advocate and was extremely understanding even when delays were beyond our control. Kath is a great listener and goes beyond expectations to provide support when needed. I would highly recommend Kath to anyone who was thinking of selling their home and I would not hesitate in approaching her if we ever needed to buy again. I cannot thank Kath for her enough for her undivided attention throughout this whole journey. We have found our forever home 😁.

Kath helped sell our heart-place at Bingie

Kath helped sell our heart-place at Bingie. We approached Kath because we sensed that she would understand our place: a bush block; privacy; beauty; innovation; and individuality. She did. Kath was sensitive, displayed wonderful communication skills; and tact. She achieved more than we had hoped for - price, but also finding wonderful buyers who we felt respected and would be rightful custodians of the place. We could not have asked for more.

Great to deal with. Ben was able to accommodate virtual inspections of the property and was very open and honest about the condition of parts of the property not clear through a video tour. He was easily contactable and communicated clearly throughout the purchasing process.

Stephen Mayer

Purchase of Real Estate

Because of the lockdown we weren't able to attend an inspection in person, so we had a video inspection. This went very well and she was able to show us everything that we wanted to see and answer all our queries. There was quite a lot of interest in this property and unfortunately we couldn't secure it for the asking price. We were disappointed by the lack of transparency when having to negotiate against other buyers. We thought that she would carry the sale through because we were the first buyers to accept the asking price.

Kath was part of our family, which she respected and looked after our house as if she was looking her own home. Because we live interstate and with Covid restrictions in NSW (border closures) Kath went beyond her duty, ensuring our house was presentable at all times and arranged local cleaners and a gardener to make sure the house was clean and tidy for the new owners. Thank you Kath and the Ben Bate Real Estate team for looking after us.

Belinda is most helpful and pleasant to deal with

Belinda is most helpful and pleasant to deal with. Belinda very efficiently obtained whatever additional information that I requested. She gave me ample 'space' to make my own assessments of the property and its features without over-selling or pushing.

Stuart Cameron

Always Positive

Kath was always positive and helpful during the selling process and kept me up to date with each potential client.

Marion Schumejko

Excellent, responsive and attentive

Excellent, responsive and attentive. Kath responded to phone calls and emails in a timely manner and was professional, approachable and attentive to requests. Considered our brief to find a new home and was pro active in contacting us with potential opportunities. To our delight our house search journey was short and sweet with a result within two weeks. If you're looking for a good agent look no further than Kath and Ben Bate Real Estate, who I would presume have this work ethos throughout their business. If Mr Ben Bate is reading this, I'd be giving Kath a raise or paid family holiday, to ensure she is not head hunted by competitors!

Ian & Petti

Friendly and very professional

Kath was a great agent to work with when selling our house recently. Friendly and professional. There wasn’t any pressure and Kath negotiated very well between us and the buyer.

Ben did an outstanding job with the communication, spot on. Ben and his staff were excellent. Their communication was spot on, we were never left wondering.

11 out of 10 - Kath is by far the best agent I have ever dealt with and I have worked with many

11 out of 10 - Kath is by far the best agent I have ever dealt with and I have worked with many. She was an utter delight. Kath was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, went above & beyond on all accounts, worked with me for my optimum outcome and we had a few laughs along the way. If I could rate Kath an 11 out of 10 I would, Ben Bate Real Estate is very lucky to have Kath as one of their agents. I can only assume she is an integral part of their team. Thank you again Kath, I truly appreciate everything you did and with a great result.

Doug & Di Sims

Great to deal with

Dear Ben Bate, having had some previous association with your company, and staff, I was in no doubt when it came to deciding who would handle "the big one" for me. From the first connection with members of your staff, in particular Kath, who was "there for me" right through. I felt that the sale result of my house was nothing short of spectacular. Many thanks again to you and the girls for a great result.

I would highly recommend Belinda from Ben Bate Real Estate to anyone looking for a high quality service. Thank you again Belinda and Ben.

Nick & Margaret Dakin

Professional and friendly

Professional and friendly. From the moment we met Kath, we liked her. She talked to us about what price to set for the house and wanted to make sure she would get us the best price possible. We would have been happy if we got the price she gave us, but she got us over the asking price. We bought the house from Ben Bate and both the buying and selling with them was a great experience.

Wendy Moss

Very accommodating and understanding

Very accommodating and understanding. Belinda was very honest and understanding in her approach. Belinda was extremely professional, going above and beyond to accommodate my family's needs.

After signing with Belinda, she and her team continued to impress throughout the entire sales campaign for my property. Belinda is an excellent communicator, and kept me updated with the marketing activities, the market response, and the offers coming in. Belinda and her team instilled trust in me, and in unusual market conditions secured a very good price for our property. I can recommend Belinda to anyone looking to sell property in Eurobodalla.

Easy and trouble free transaction in house purchase.

Easy and trouble free transaction in house purchase. Initial contact was via an internet link to the agent and received a prompt return call that day from Kath (unlike other agencies we recently dealt with). Her knowledge base on the premises was excellent and anything she wasn’t sure of she indicated she would get back to us, which she did in a prompt fashion. Very happy with all our dealings with Kath and Ben Bate Real Estate.

I was kept updated on all enquires & given plenty of notice prior to an inspection, which was closely followed up with all feedback both positive & negative which I truly appreciated.

Pauline Simmonds

Sale of 2 Mitchell Place

As Ben noted, we have come full circle as Ben was involved with purchase of our home in 2010 and now sale in 2021. Ben and his team at the agency have provided advice, support and management to the highest standard. At the start when discussion of sale price took place, we were taken back by the amount he quoted. Getting the maximum price for the sale showed that Ben is very up to date with market value. As we went through the process of the sale, the building inspection discovered areas of the house extension which the licensed builder did not go through council approval. Ben with his extensive knowledge and contacts in building industry found solutions to the problems. Where work was necessary, he arranged for the relevant tradesperson to ratify the problem. Having just come out of a year of rehabilitation with major ill health, my anxiety is lessened through his friendliness and his caring nature helped tremendously. I was secure in the knowledge that he will come good with whatever challenge we will face. I would recommend Ben and his team at the agency for anyone who wishes to buy or sell homes in Narooma.

George & Noraidah Atkin

Friendly, authentic and helpful

Ben Bate managing sale process

Ben promptly organised an inspection of the property after taking our call on Easter Friday. The sale process involved a second round of final bids. Although the process was nerve racking it was handled very confidentially & professionally. We became the new owners in only 6 days which was very satisfying.

James Baldry

Friendly, informative and trustworthy

Friendly, informative and trustworthy. I just bought my first new place through Kath and she was amazing. Knowledgeable and always helpful no matter what simple question I asked.

Neil & Jan Morrison

32 Binalong Street, Dalmeny purchased from Fremantle WA

I rang Kath from Fremantle after seeing a property online. She was engaging, pleasant and positive. Kath understood my enthusiasm and, as a local in the area, thoroughly understood my needs for a place and why I would fit into the area. She arranged a virtual inspection the next day. Kath was just as excited about the house as I was and thoroughly professional in her advice to me about going about the steps to acquire the property. I flew across from WA and met her at the property to confirm my intention to buy. I was very pleased to have her with me as we finalised the purchase, as well as supplying local contacts to expedite the inspection and the conveyancing. I am sure we will see each other in town in the future and remain friends. Thank you Kath for making the process from a distant place seem imminently achievable!

Great and a very professional person to work with. Kath has a very strong work ethic and conducts herself in a very professional manner. Kath went out of her way to help us with this purchase and provided a great level of support to enable a fast purchase.

My husband and I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to sell. Can't thank Kath and Ben enough.

Lynette & Graham McErlain

Purchasing with Kath

Purchasing with Kath. As interstate buyers initial contacts were via email and phone until an inspection could be arranged. All information that was able to be supplied was to our satisfaction and Kath was very pleasant in the manner of good regional real estate sales agents. While the vendor is the primary responsibility Kath was very supportive of the extra considerations we requested in negotiations and prompt in finalising. All good.

Ian & Lynne Lyon

Jeff & Kylie

Thank you so much Kath

Thank you so much Kath. The experience of selling a home can be such a stressful time, in my case being interstate while this was happening and adding a national and world Pandemic was destine to add to this stress. BUT, much to my relief any stress very quickly disappeared after enlisting you and your company, Ben Bate Real Estate. Your willingness to go over and above what you really had to do within your day to day, was exceptional. This relates to all matters, but especially when it came to you helping organise the trades required to renovate my home prior to sale. Ben Bate Real estate is lucky to have you as their representative. This did not stop with your amazing service, the phone communications I had to have with Ella were a joy also, she made the experience a laugh for the day as well as being effective. Thanks you for the experience.

Chris Clements

Glenn & Sharon

Kath is completely thorough & professional

Kath is a completely thorough & professional real estate agent. Someone a person comes to expect, representing the area's leading agency. Kath excelled during the COVID crisis, realising my sale a little over 6 days after listing. As is sometimes the case, all parties were disappointed due to a lack of bank financing. Kath went back to market and secured a second sale & negotiated it to its completion, within a further 7 day timeframe. All potential home sellers could not do better than Kath as their front of agency representative.

Rod Elliott

Kath was great to deal with

Kath was great to deal with. Kath went out of her way to assist us to purchase a property in Narooma during COVID and without us being able to inspect in person. Kath was thorough and gave us support to make it all happen. Helpful, friendly and easy to contact. 10/10.

With Ben's support she helped me negotiate a quick settlement requiring the property to be vacated quickly. All assistance from cleaning to unwanted furniture and rubbish removal was arranged with minimum fuss making what could have been a stressful process very straight forward. Thank-you!

Ben and his team made selling this property stress free, I would have no hesitation in recommending Ben and his staff to anyone listing their property. Thank you so much everyone at Ben Bate Real Estate.

Vicki & Brad

Sale of our property in Narooma, NSW

We listed our Narooma property for sale with local agents, Ben Bates Real Estate; that agency having a reputation of the best performing agency in Narooma. Kath Wilkinson handled the sale process from the initial consultation with us through to advertising the property, canvassing prospective purchasers, managing property viewings and, ultimately, negotiating with the successful purchaser. Kath was a pleasure to deal with. She demonstrated professionalism and a very proactive approach through the entire process from managing agreed timelines and price expectations to keeping us regularly updated with progress achieved in the sale process. Ultimately, Kath was successful in achieving a sale that met our price expectations. We would have no hesitation in recommending Kath to other prospective vendors.

A tough sale in tough times. Belinda sold our home under very difficult circumstances after bushfires and during COVID-19.

Jenny & Peter

Dear Ben,

Thank you for guiding me through the sale of my house. You were always punctual and did not stint on time when issues needed an explanation. I felt that I could call on you whenever I needed advice. The information you provided on the local market was clear and concise and gave me an understanding of my house position in that market and what it was likely to sell for. I was always given plenty of notice for inspections and your staff were at all times efficient and helpful. My house sold in six weeks and I received the price you said that it would sell for. I was very happy with the result. The advice you gave me on looking for a suitable property in the Blue Mountains was invaluable and I am currently in the process of purchasing a town house in Katoomba. I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your agency to prospective buyers and sellers. Yours Sincerely, Kerren Ogg

Kerren Ogg

 Ben Bate and his wonderful staff

When we decided to list our property for sale, we were a little apprehensive about choosing an agent that we would feel confident about handling our biggest and most valuable asset, until a friend who had used your agency a few years back recommended that we use Ben Bate Real Estate- we weren't disappointed as from day one we were fed a continual stream of information and advice- the communication during the inspections and subsequent feedback ensured that our sale would succeed sooner rather than later. Now approximately 3 months later we have the result we were looking for, thanks to the proffessionalism of Ben Bate and his wonderful staff. Belinda whom we had most contact with is a real gem and a real asset to your team, she was keen to keep us relaxed and informed every step of the way passing on her experience in Real Estate and contributing to make our transition so much less stressful.

Dear Ben -Just a note to thank you and Belinda for the helpful and efficient dealings we had with your company in the sale of our land at Bodalla. All the staff at Ben Bate Real Estate were terrific and we look forward to dealing with you again when we sell our next block.

Judy & Peter Waterman

My house had already been on the market for two years before I asked the Ben Bate Agency to sell it. They assessed potential buyers very well and only brought genuine buyers through the property. They had good coverage on the internet and plenty of photos. They gave me plenty of notice of inspections and always conducted these in a professional manner. Negotiations on the final price with the prospective buyers was handled very well and after three years on the market I was happy with the sale price. This agency sold me the house eight years ago and have now been successful in selling it once again. Well done.

Gail Dickson

Belinda achieved the sale of both properties under rather difficult circumstances. There were 3 owners (family members) who were estranged, so communication was difficult. Belinda managed to bring everything together and achieve a satisfactory price at the end.

Murray Field & Sever Families

This is the first property I have had anything to do with. I had to sell this property on behalf of my Mum due to her ongoing health problems. I had no idea where to start but remembered what Mum had told me when she bought the property off the plan 25 years ago, that was she only had GOOD things to say about the Agent she was buying through, that Agent was BEN BATE REAL ESTATE. Seeing how BEN BATE REAL ESTATE is still in Narooma today what better place to start? I walked into BEN BATE'S office and after talking to BEN for ten minutes I was totally relaxed and knew I had nothing to worry about. I have a few health problems myself and after explaining this to BEN he and his TEAM took over. Any problems that came up were handled by BEN and his TEAM and they were constantly in touch with me throughout the sale. I have nothing but praise for BEN and his TEAM and would HIGHLY recommend them if you are thinking of buying or selling. Thank you BEN BATE REAL ESTATE.

SOLD thanks to Ben Bate

07 February 2017I had an investment property in Narooma for six years and wished to sell it. I contacted Ben Bate who was recommended to me by friends in the area. Ben and his staff have been great in all our dealings, always keeping me informed as to what was going on in the market. The first buyer they found for me couldn't get finance so the deal fell though. So after talking with Ben, I decided to take the unit off the market and try again at a later date. Ben then contacted me about six months later and we put it back on and it sold within a very short time of that. So all I can say is thank you to Ben Bate and staff

 I have no hesitation in recommending Ben Bate Real Estate to anyone wanting to sell their property.

This letter is to describe my experience of selling my property through Ben Bate Real Estate in Narooma NSW. I interviewed and received appraisals from three agents in the area. The appraisal from Aiden of Ben Bate Real Estate was far more detailed and comprehensive than the other two. Aiden was at the property for a couple of hours, the other two agents were only there for thirty minutes. I was also impressed by the sales records, networking and selling strategies presented by Aiden. The selling price recommended by Ben Bate was the highest of the three agents with one agent recommending a price 25% lower. The selling price achieved by Ben Bate was 97.85% of the asking price. All my interactions with Ben Bate staff were friendly and courteous and I always felt my requirements were respected and that I was in good hands. I have no hesitation in recommending Ben Bate Real Estate to anyone wanting to sell their property.

John Wild

 I recommend them without hesitation.

I have now bought and sold a property with Ben Bate Real Estate. I have nothing but praise for this outstanding business which is run by a scrupulous team of bright and motivated people. I recall buying my place off Ben after visiting several agents in the area who did not impress me. They care about their business and your experience with them. I am happy with the price we received and how efficiently and effectively the property was marketed. I recommend them without hesitation.

We thank you for the great result

We thank you for the great result you achieved for us when selling our home. Having first met you when we were looking to buy a property, we were impressed by your professional approach. You listened attentively to our wishes, assessed our needs and matched our requirements extremely well to the properties you presented. While showing us through homes you were at all times respectful of the owners and their property and you possess the ability of presenting positive features without over-selling. You also gave us plenty of time to have a good look through houses and discuss our thoughts without hovering over us. Thank you for staying in touch with us, without being intrusive, for over two years while we decided on a property to buy. When the time came to sell our house we had no hesitation in choosing you as our selling agent; we had confidence that you would always act in our best interests. We did, however, perform due diligence and consulted two other local agents, both of whom gave us disappointingly low selling price estimates without providing relevant price comparisons in our area. Your estimate – the highest of the three we obtained - was backed by sound research and thorough knowledge of local property sales. The first people you introduced to our property bought it. You skillfully negotiated the best price for us and at all times kept us informed of progress of contract exchange and settlement. We were absolutely delighted that the selling process was so quick and smooth and were grateful for your support throughout. We have great regard for your professional ability and highly recommend you to both prospective sellers and buyers. Thank you for your support, care and skill in achieving an excellent result for us Belinda.

Mike & Mandy Wheatley

Perfect!

We and Aiden were on the same page most of the time. Aiden listened openly to our suggestions and always responded positively to our instructions. For example, after a number of months of listing, Aiden approach us to see if we wanted to reduce the price to move the property. We didn't want to do that. We listed at the price point we needed and were happy to wait. Aiden completely understood and was able to land the asking price. Perfect! Aiden also ensured that we had active input into the description and web blurb, and happily re-arranged the shopfront display to give our property a more prominent place. Aiden was in contact weekly and provided advice and updates. He was honest and trustworthy and we valued his advice. He also had to put up with us, we were determined to have an asking price that we would meet and we were not going to move. That may be quite an unusual approach, but it what we required and what we got, thanks to Aiden as well.

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.

Aiden also kept us informed as to the progress of the property we wanted to buy which enabled us to finally secure it.

Aiden understood and managed the whole process

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.

Gray Ramsey

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.

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.

My special thanks to Belinda and Ben for the very professional service given to me for the sale of both my properties in Dalmeny. Left it in their capable hands and they didn't fail me in achieving the outcome that I wanted. Would recommend them without hesitation.
