Our team aims to provide personal, quality advice and service.
We are grateful when our clients are thankful and very happy with our results.
These are some of the comments our clients have said about Bisset Real Estate.
After 10 years of living in my townhouse, I had the property rented through Bisset Real Estate and later sold by Barry, whereby the sale was left in his care.
Barry’s experience and service is exceptional, far beyond what I’ve experienced through other agencies.
Integrity, trust, reliability and care are also much part of his professional service, and he made the whole selling process a breeze. We achieved the top price in the street for the townhouse at the time, and would most highly recommend Barry Bisset to anyone considering selling their home.
With sincere gratitude to you Barry.
Donna & I would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks to you on a great result in the sale of our property in Mona Vale. Your whole approach was such a help to us. Like most people we don’t do this sort of thing every day and you made the whole process very easy for us. Your straight forward honesty and approach made all the decisions we had to make so easy and logical. You listened to what we had to say and guided us to the best way to approach things (not the most expensive way but the most sensible way). ‘Thank You’ once again for all your help and assistance and for a great result.
Cheers for now

“Barry is professional personified.
Selling is about understanding the buyer as well as the seller; those who have put their property in his care to get the best price possible. Barry takes the time to do this.
He is patient, hardworking and realistic. All in all, very easy to work with.”
“After interviewing numerous agents and agencies, we chose Bisset Real Estate to handle the sale of our property. Specifically Barry Bisset the principal.
Barry brought a wealth of knowledge from his many years in sales and local personal experiences.
Barry presented us with a very clear marketing strategy and timeframe on how he planned to meet our agreed expectations. He explained how he would target the market to specific buyers, what would work and what wouldn’t, where they would come from and most importantly, when they would make their offers. We had total trust in his ability to deliver, and as expected, what he explained would happen, is exactly what did happen.
Barry negotiated a ‘win, win’ situation for us as Very Happy vendors passing our lovely home into the care of the new owners who will no doubt enjoy their new home. We are very happy with the result achieved.
We would certainly highly recommend Bisset Real Estate to anyone considering selling.
As Barry said, “you can’t buy experience, you have to earn it. You don’t have to be the biggest agent or agency in the area, just the smartest. It all comes down to the result through personal ability.”
Teresita and I were recommended to Bisset real estate thru a family friend, and after an initial meeting with Barry and Marilyn, we knew almost immediately that we had a responsible Real Estate agent working for us.
We sold our investment property on the central coast, after owning it for over 25 years. We spoke with two real estate agents local to the area, including the same agent that had been managing the property for 16 of those 25 years, and were very disappointed in their costs, understanding of the area (that they lived and worked in), and the estimated sale price. In short, the local agents just wanted a quick turnover for a high fee – in one case, fees over 4%!
We asked Bisset Real Estate if they were interested in selling a property so far from where they are active (North Shore) and what their fees where – and were pleasantly surprised at their enthusiasm and fee structure.
Barry and Marilyn ran a first class internet campaign, made some excellent suggestions for the “sprucing up” of the property prior to sale, and used excellent third parties for the provision of contracts and for the brochure photography. In fact the photos were better than we could possible imagine.
The property ran for a little longer than estimated, as that area at that time was flooded with canny Asian investors all eager for bargains. He recommended that we wait that out, and in a very short space of time, had some brilliant offers.
Ultimately, the property sold to a first home couple with children, and for a price $50,000 above what the local agents had estimated which represented a 12% increase. Barry had estimated that it would sell for between $470,000 and $500,000 and its final sale price was $485,000.
Knowing that our first house was going to be used to raise a family again, made the whole process worth it. We could not be happier.
If you are considering selling your house or home, can I recommend to you a sit-down chat with Barry and his team? You won’t be disappointed, and you will walk away with realistic costs and a sale price that will be on the money. In short, they know what they are doing, and have been doing it right for many years.
Prior to listing with you, we were impressed with your advice, there was no pressure to list, and you often called to keep us informed on property prices in our area. It took us some time to finally put our home up for sale, we were happy with your fees. You and your staff were invaluable. We were also impressed with the quality of the brochures. Thank you for your expertise with the smooth sale of our home.

I would like to thank you so much for your assistance and support in the recent sale of my Home Unit.
You were always available and honest and I felt comfortable to leave it all in your hands.
A very good result was achieved and what is quite a stressful situation (selling one’s home) became a very smooth process.
I would happily recommend your service to anyone selling or purchasing Real Estate.
Margaret Ann Eade
To all potential sellers.
We would like to sincerely thank Barry Bisset for looking after the sale of our home.
Barry always conducted himself in a very professional, friendly and helpful manner and made what could have been a stressful time, so easy and pleasant.
He delivered exactly what he promised and got us the very best result for the sale of our home.
We cannot thank him enough for making this process such a pleasant, stress free experience.
We would highly recommend him to anyone wanting an agent with experience, who provides excellent service and communication skills, and delivers great results.

Di from Mona Vale
A couple of months ago one Saturday I had a knock on the front door it was the friendly real e state man who had put up with my mad dog running through his open for inspection a couple of doors down with a cone on his head following his desexing. The dog enjoyed running riot in the unit and the back garden with muddy foot prints on the white tiles. The friendly real estate man just smiled through it all.
When he knocked on my door he was there to tell me that he sold the unit and that he had got a great price for it and there were other people interested who had missed out on that unit.
I decided I wanted to sell and get a house of the mad dog!!! Barry offered his services and I have been very happy with his expertise in selling my unit. He was amazing in his diligence to follow the sale through and had expert advice all the way through the process. He was prompt in getting the unit listed as in the meantime I had found my dream house for my mad dog.
Barry had contacts for styling, gardening, cleaning, removalists and storage. His photographer is a well-known identity on the Northern Beaches who is an expert in his field, they are great photos.
I would thoroughly recommend Barry to sell your property, you will not be disappointed.

Barry acted for us in the sale of our property last year. He sold it in 5 weeks.
Barry is a likely lad. He is cheerful and cooperative, wise, patient, kind, has attention to detail and the ability to relate to different kinds of personalities. He is willing to sit down and have a chat and let us know things, even before we think of the questions.
He sold the house next door and they were also very satisfied with Barry. He helped us prepare our house, even carrying boxes and helping us clean up and clear out the property. He never once criticised the state of our house (it was a but frayed around the edges). When our motivation flagged he was able to inspire us and encourage us.
Even when we knocked back early offers and cancelled open houses sometimes, he was honest and upfront but also patient with us.
We have no hesitation in recommending Barry as a real estate agent, and as a good bloke.
Sincerely, Tony & Kay
