Colin has now sold two properties of ours His perseverance and diligence has made him a pleasure to work with over the years. Colin was able to facilitate the conveyancer and contracts of sale, which helped us a lot.
Thank you Colin.

Colin and Greg from Victorian Real Estate acted as the selling agents for the property owned by Barbara Adams, our sister and sister-in-law respectively following her admission to aged care.
Some 15 years ago, Barbara first met Colin who was distributing flyers for his then Burwood Village business and they maintained contact over the ensuing years. There was no doubt in Barbara’s mind who was going to sell her property when the time arose.

For practical reasons the involvement as vendor fell to us jointly, consulting as necessary with Barbara. Throughout the sale process we came to endorse Barbara’s high opinion of Colin and felt comfortable that the sale was in the right hands.

We found Colin to be unfailingly personable, polite and professional. We were able to concentrate on the preparation of the home while Colin controlled all other matters, including guidance and referrals to other professionals and services as required.

We would recommend Colin unreservedly to any prospective client in the future because of his integrity and sound personal and business principles. This was evident particularly during the post-auction negotiations with the ultimately successful buyer.

We wish Colin well for the future, and with Barbara thank him for his efforts and support to us throughout the successful sale.

Warm Regards,
Rae and Kevin Conway – on behalf of Barbara Adams

I am extremely happy we ended up going with Victorian Real Estate to sell our property. We transferred from using a different agent to instead choosing to go with Victorian Real Estate, the difference in account management was vast. Victorian Real Estate were on top of it from the beginning with fantastic communication and recommendations on what to do. I felt so comfortable through the whole process and definitely did not feel like just a number (which I did with the previous real estate company which is why we changed). We got the price we wanted and the whole process was made super smooth. I highly recommend Colin and the team!

My wife and l would like to thank Colin Rounds from Victorian Real Estate in selling our commercial property. We contacted Colin to discuss our property after an unsuccessful campaign with a previous agency, we then proceeded to engage his agency which turned out to be a blessing. His enthusiasm and experience won Dawn and myself over and advised us what was needed to help sell our property, as a consequence of us appointing Victorian Real Estate our property was sold within 4 weeks of being advertised. The price we achieved was extremely acceptable and the settlement terms suited us immensely, Colin’s negotiation and communication skills were fantastic and contributed in a prompt sale. We would not hesitate in appointing Colin again in the future, and highly recommend Victorian Real Estate to anyone who is thinking of selling their property. Great work Colin!

We appointed Victorian Real Estate to sell our property after being referred to their agency, after meeting with 2 other agencies, we decided to appoint Victorian Real Estate for various reasons and knowing that the Principal/Director Colin Rounds formerly worked for one of Victoria’s largest franchise group before establishing in own agency in 2010. His experience, knowledge of the real estate market and personalized service along with Greg Dixon was outstanding. Their understanding of our requirements and flexibility with open inspections helped us immensely, Greg and Colin recommended we Auction our property and to consider the idea of selling prior to Auction should an offer be made that we were happy to accept. As a consequence, Greg and Colin work throughout the campaign was amazing and were able to negotiate and receive offers from number of buyers prior to Auction before finally accepting the highest offer being offered, the settlement terms also met our requirements.

The price we received for our property was well above our initial expectations and the service was awesome, we would highly recommend Greg and Colin from Victorian Real Estate to anyone who is wanting to sell their property and who are looking for an agency that delivers on what they say plus more. We will be sure to appoint Greg and Colin again to sell our property should we decide to sell in the years to come. Great work Greg and Colin, our family is greatly appreciative of your effort and honesty.

We first became involved with Victorian Real Estate when Colin was appointed the Property Manager of our family property in Camberwell approximately four years ago in 2013. During this time, through his Management team, property was kept in as good condition as could be expected with the lawns and gardens maintained and maintenance, repairs and replacements carried out as efficiently as could be expected.  During this time, we had three tenants, all of whom looked after our property as if it was their own.

After four years the decision was made to sell the house. We approached four Real Estate companies for quotes and appointed Colin and his agency as the selling agent.  A major factor in us making this decision was due to way Colin and his team managed our property, Colin’s enthusiasm, experience, and the organizing in having our property prepared for Auction was outstanding.

We had no regrets in appointing Colin as our Sales Agent as he was courteous and polite at all times, kept us fully informed of all enquiries and lastly conducted the Auction in a totally professional manner. We, as a family are more than happy with the result Colin and his staff achieved at the Auction.

Colin Rounds from Victorian Real Estate successfully sold our property at 1/648 High Street, Prahran at Auction for $1,240,000.00 ($190,000.00 over the reserve price). Colin’s attention to detail and customer service was amazing, he certainly knows the real estate market, his experience and friendly approach to communicate and negotiate with the buyers throughout the Auction campaign was a testament to the result he achieved for our property. l would have no hesitations in recommending Colin and his agency Victorian Real Estate to sell your home.

After finally making the decision to sell my apartment l did not have a clue what to do until l met Colin Rounds, the Principal/Director of Victorian Real Estate. We met accidentally at an inspection of an apartment where he was conducting one as well, I engaged his services and have never looked back since. He was so professional and positive and l liked him immediately.

He attended my apartment for an appraisal and provided me with advice on how to prepare in getting ready to sell and how he would achieve a great result, l was able to sell my apartment due to Colin’s experience, negotiating skills, people skills and excellent work ethic. Colin made me feel so comfortable and kept me informed throughout the sale and provided me with valuable advice in buying a new property which l assisted me with and was even present at the inspection and for the signing of the contracts at no charge which was extremely generous and thoughtful. Having not sold for many years it was a very stressful time for me but Colin always reassured me it well sell and he was right, Colin has many skills but l also like the fact that he was always available and always returned my calls promptly.

I am forever grateful to him for his guidance in helping me sell my property, as well as his help in buying my new property within 14 days of selling mine, l hope that other people get to meet and appoint him as there agent and to experience what I experienced. Colin is an excellent agent and a good guy and l will undoubtedly be recommending Colin and his agency to my family and friends or whoever is wanting to sell their property.

Having recently moved to the coast and needing to lease out my beloved home in Glen Iris I turned to the internet to locate a reputable property manager in the area. I was looking for a property manager that offered above average service, didn’t manage too many properties and had reasonable fees. I came across Victorian Real Estate and they seemed to have quite good reviews online. My initial dealing was with the Director and Principal Colin Rounds.
As you would expect from the Director of a business, Colin was extremely personable, knowledgeable, efficient and helpful. Colin made me feel instantly at ease and won me over with his proactive and professional approach, and friendly nature. Colin was extremely proactive with communication and advice throughout the process of leasing my house; providing feedback on home opens and potential tenants.
Within two weeks of appointing Rounds they had leased out my property at well above the market average in the area. Colin and the team at Victorian Real Estate exceeded my expectations and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking to rent their home.

It is so rare to find businesses that are truly customer focused, but Victorian Real Estate is this and so much more. Thanks again to Colin and the team for all their help!
