What is ?

"Fantastic service!"

My family has had a generational - lasting relationship with Bartrops, and our experience with Tim Etchells did not disappoint. As an agent, his efforts were exemplary, always punctual and considerate of tenant and landlord alike. When it came to selling, his efforts resulted in a better than expected sale price and a seamless sales process. Fantastic service.

"Tim knows the market very well"

I recently engaged Tim Etchells of Bartrop Real Estate Ballarat for the sale of my property. Tim knows the market very well. From preparation of the photos and write-up of the property, to signing of the contract, Tim was meticulous and pro-active. Communicative and responsive, he kept me updated regularly. I was thrilled when my property sold with the first open for inspection at a great price. Tim achieves great results with his sound knowledge of the market and great negotiation skills. Tim is very professional, efficient, honest and hardworking. I am very happy and impressed with Tim. I very highly recommend Tim to anyone looking for a superb agent who delivers great results. I'm so happy with Bartrop Real Estate.

I chose Bartrop Real Estate from observation of their performance over recent years.

" Capable, concerned and very considerate."

Bartrop Real Estate have managed the Body Corporate where my home is located and have been capable, concerned and very considerate.
