Thanks for your interest in learning more about our agency. We are the owners, Scott & Cheryl Balliet, and we’ve been living and investing in the Casey - Cardinia area for over 17 years. After working for the big real estate agencies we knew we could offer much better value & service independently so in 2015 we set out to do just that.
We’re REIV members, fully licensed and insured & now manage over 200 properties across the South Eastern suburbs. We also sell properties with a fixed price commission which saves the average seller thousands in fees.
How do we manage to thrive in such a competitive industry? Low overheads & efficiency! When you ring us, you’ll either talk to us directly or one of our assistants so everyone’s working proficiently to get the job done.
We’ve gone into roof cavities, thrown down mulch, have lit countless water heaters – basically if we can fix little things to save you a bit of money we will. When we do an initial condition report, it's not just a quick walk through with a few general pictures - it normally takes us about 5 - 8 hours to complete, and you have hundreds of photos as evidence.
But don't take our word for it - here are what some of our clients have said...
"Scott and Cheryl are the ultimate professionals! In all seriousness we were getting nothing for our ‘property manager dollars’ until we moved to My Mates Real Estate - these guys treat our properties with the same care they would their own. Nothing is too much hassle, in fact Cheryl is always available when needed and keeps us up to date with any details we need to know. I can not recommend them highly enough - I just wonder why we didn’t move to them sooner!" (B & M, Cranbourne N)
"Cheryl and Scott are just fantastic - Professional, responsible, reliable, attention to detail, excellent communication and on top of that they're so knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. No question goes unanswered and nothing is too much trouble. I can recommend them 100%" (R & M, Lyndhurst)
If you are looking for a different kind of agent, give us a call and we would be happy to assist.
We mainly work in Pakenham, Berwick, Cranbourne & Officer (...and surrounding areas!)
Why spend $10,000+ to sell your property when it can be done for much, much less? Selling nowadays is simple and most buyers go looking in one place - realestate.com.au
We market & advertise to qualified buyers then negotiate with them so you receive their best and final offer. Negotiating for the highest price + less expenses = more money in your pocket!
The first question you should ask any prospective property manager is "Do you own investment properties yourself?" It sounds like an intrusive question but it will show how committed they are to property investing & also providing homes for others.
We have been investing in the Casey-Cardinia area since 2001. There is almost nothing we haven't encountered or done ourselves & we are constantly learning to keep on top of the latest trends.
Being REIV members also gives us access to a wealth of resources. Rest assured your property is in good hands by agents who have the experience & understanding that's needed to ensure your property is well managed.
