Take a look at what the Sunday Age last weekend had to say about the fabulous family suburb of Balwyn.

Balwyn is one of only a handful of suburbs experiencing growth above the inflation rate according to the REIV’s figures, making it a great place to invest in a family home as well as reap the benefits of the wonderful lifestyle on offer.

AUCTION RESULT – 7 The Nook, Balwyn North – SOLD $1,100,000 – 5 March 2011

This updated 1940’s home in Balwyn High School Zone recently sold at auction for $1,100,000.  To see more of this beautifully maintained property, take a look at

Here’s what the happy vendors had to say after the auction:  “When it came to time to sell our home we had no hesitation in contacting Tim Heavyside at Fletchers to handle the sale.  Tim had sold us our home 9 years ago, and we had been impressed by his professionalism, honesty and integrity.  After our initial meeting with Tim we were confident that we would have a successful outcome.

Tim, Jennifer Ellett and their team made it all so easy.  Their knowledge of prospective buyers for the area was extremely insightful with regard to the marketing campaign for the property.  The contact and feedback from the Fletchers team, particularly Jennifer, was constant, honest and reassuringWe can’t thank them enough for their endless assistance in selling our home and making the whole process seem effortless.

The result achieved was outstanding, and way above our expectations.  We would highly recommend them for their professionalism, eagerness, optimism, honesty and integrity.”  – Michael & Maureen.

What a fantastic result!  Here’s what the happy vendors had to say – “Selling our first family home was filled with a mix of emotions.  Whilst our home was a modest unit, we had put a lot of work into making it more appealing and it was filled with wonderful memories.  But we needed a bigger space and it felt like the right time to move on.  The team at Fletchers helped make the decision to sell that much easier.  From the initial meeting, things just moved quickly and smoothly and all of a sudden we were celebrating the success of the sale of our home.  At all times the team team at Fletchers, importantly Tim Heavyside and Thomas Lo, were experts in their game, professional and kept us informed on all aspects of the campaign.  I would recommend Fletchers to anyone considering the sale or purchase of a home. 

The happy vendors, the Perry family

Many thanks, from the Perry Family.”

Future Movie Star?

Busy promoting Fletchers in the media lately – did a story on auctions for A Current Affair on Monday night (5/7/2010) – check out the video on ninemsn’s website. Also spent this morning filming for a new upcoming Ch 7 show about property – can’t say too much but looks great! And thanks to past vendors Darren & Kim Bates & family for allowing me to use their story in Sun’s Herald Sun article about downsizing.
Not only filming for prime time TV, but spent parts of Monday this week & Tuesday last week filming Fletchers staff for our upcoming annual Awards Night video. Should be a fun night for Fletchers staff, partners & industry partners.

A meeting of minds has created a masterpiece!

Just 1 year old, this double storey family home was architect designed under instructions from a mother and entertainer who clearly knew what was best for family living. This focus shows in the intelligent floor plan, perfectly proportioned rooms, practical details and the delightful easily kept landscaped gardens with a river washed pebble surfaced courtyard and extensive sunny decks at the rear leading to a beautiful solar and gas heated salt water pool with spa and a cabana.

Just around the corner from the Balwyn Plaza shops and Belmore Road’s bus, in walking distance to schools, the home’s very flexible floor plan offers 4 living areas on two floors to provide peaceful family living and able to host any occasion. Featuring beautiful timber flooring, the hall leads past a carpeted study to a living or music room viewing the garden and courtyard. At the rear, a marvellous carpeted media/family room opens to the rear deck and pool. The adjoining kitchen-family meals area also opens to the deck and garden. The sumptuous kitchen includes caesar stone benches, exceptional storage, carefully selected appliances including two brilliant NEFF ovens, twin Liebherr plumbed stainless steel refrigerators and a Miele dishwasher.

Also; a downstairs gym (or 5th bedroom) with adjacent shower plus a powder room, spacious upstairs rumpus room, 4 more bedrooms with built-in robes including main with a walk-in robe and full ensuite plus a 2nd bedroom with ensuite, family bathroom plus separate powder room. Other features include a fully fitted laundry and double lock-up garage with remote operated door and internal access; gates to a rear ROW.

Would love to see you at the open for inspection
