We’re your real estate partner
Even before you list your property you should expect nothing less than a partnership with your agent: you need someone you can trust throughout the whole process.
The team at Madeleine Hicks Real Estate make it their mission to put transparency back into every transaction. We understand that selling your property is a major life decision. We never assume. We communicate… actually, we’re human… we chat and share and inform and ask questions. We’re honest and direct, and above all, we listen. That’s what a partnership does. And you should expect this of your real estate partner.
We’re independent, our reputation is built one sale at a time
Independent agencies are agile and in control of every detail, large and small. And this is a good thing. We have the freedom to do all that you ask of us…
With half of all real estate agencies in Australia now independently owned, independent doesn’t mean obscure, small or less effective, independent agencies are about doing things better, more efficiently and more effectively.
Independent agencies are different to both boutique and franchise agencies. Boutique agencies market high-end properties to high-end buyers. Apart from the instant brand awareness of the franchise agents, being an independent agent means we are able to focus on you and your needs, instead of the often more generic approach of larger agents.
We care. Ask our clients…
We view our relationship with you as a partnership. We love what we do – helping people achieve their real estate goals – and our team works with your every step of the way.

We’re great marketers and negotiators
A good agent will sell your home. A great agent will sell your home for the best possible price by generating maximum buyer interest coupled with astute negotiating – in partnership with you.
Which suburb we’re located in, makes no difference to our ability to sell your home – buyers don’t generally walk into our office asking to buy a house. Buyers find the home they want because of good marketing through signage, print or online resources. And this is what we focus on: quality photography, clear and compelling property descriptions, scrutinising all buyer interest, and tough but fair negotiation.
We consistently achieve outstanding results
Never hire the real estate agent who tells you your property will sell for the highest price. Hire a real estate agent based on their consistent track record of satisfied clients (they’ll be the ones who got the result they expected – or better!).
In her past life, Madeleine worked for a large franchise agency and received numerous awards for her sales achievements, in particular, the year she decided to do it a better way – to open her own agency – Madeleine was awarded number one sales person, nationally.
A great real estate agent will consistently negotiate the best possible sale prices. Track record speaks loudly, when partnering with an agent.
We love a good system
Tidy, functioning office – tidy mind. You know how the saying goes… Here at Madeleine Hicks Real Estate we love a good system. We appreciate order, work-flow, and systemising, and that frees us up to do what we do best: be your real estate partner.
It might seem obvious, or even boring to rate so highly a systemised office, but unless we have our house in order, how can we prioritise yours?
The Fuel Discount is a bonus from us to you. We are selling homes very quickly and have a lot of buyers missing out - waiting in the wings for their opportunity. We market effectively, we attract good numbers of relevant buyers and therefore we need MORE homes to sell to these qualified buyers.
“Real estate is about people, their expectations and aspirations. It's a
wonderful, challenging responsibility, which needs to be handled diligently and
with empathy” says Allie
Previously she worked in education in Australia, South Korea, China and
Thailand and co-authored two books. Meeting and working with a diverse range of people on four continents has
been invaluable in honing many skills, particularly in communication and
Clients find that an approachable agent of integrity, who is thorough, reliable and skilled, is
well placed to achieve outstanding results.
Each property needs to be considered on its own merit and what method of marketing and selling will work best for the property.
“Dear Allie, Madeleine and everyone in the office, Thank you so much for all of your hard work to get such a quick offer and contract on our unit! We ended up with more than we ever thought we would get! Thank you again!”
Madeleine conducted the sale of my house in a friendly and professional way. Her knowledge of the property and area was exceptional and an excellent result was achieved. Madeleine and her team kept me regularly well informed during the entire process. I am pleased that I came to Madeleine Hicks Real Estate when I decided to sell my home.
Dearest Madeleine & Allie,
Just wanted to say a big thank you for the hard work and dedication you put into selling our house. Also thank you for the professionalism you all showed in managing the property for the last year.
