Graeme Jarvie – Managing Director

I began my career in Real Estate with B. J. Bennett & Co. Real Estate Pty Ltd as a sales consultant in 1991 at the Mirboo North office after completing my Sub-Agents license. Having a successful rural and farming background I found it easy to adapt to and enjoy the sales of rural properties. Having the rural knowledge I have the advantage of being able to relate to both vendor and purchaser requirements. I also adapted to and gathered expertise in the sale of residential properties. In 1993 I was appointed Branch Manager of the Mirboo North office. In 2003 my wife Rowena and I became part owners and Directors of BJ Bennett & Co Professionals Real Estate Pty Ltd. In 2006 I completed my full Real Estate Agents License and in 2007 I became the Managing Director of the company and occupy that position today.

Over the many years in Real Estate I have consistently been the most successful agent in our Company. I have also won many State awards through the Professionals group, with my results remaining amongst their elite salespeople in Victoria. I also have numerous letters of recommendation. Awards include yearly sales of over $12million on a regular basis.

I am dedicated to delivering sound advice that people can trust to make informed decisions about buying, selling, or building wealth through the real estate market. Honesty and trust are vital elements in the real estate industry and qualities that are highly valued by me in personal and business relationships. I provide you with honest and practical advice for all your real estate needs.

Over the years, I have worked tirelessly to build my reputation as one of the most experienced and trusted estate agents in and around the area. I attribute my success to two key principles – dedication to every client’s success and integrity and honesty in all relationships. I can genuinely empathise with the unique needs of each client.

In selling rural properties and farmlets I travel anywhere. In selling homes I service the towns of Morwell, Mirboo North, Yinnar, Thorpdale, Churchill, Traralgon, Newborough and Trafalgar.

When it comes down to real results, local market knowledge and experience are the most important criteria when selecting an agent. By choosing our agency to market your property you are leaving your most valuable asset with a person that has a proven track record of getting results.

Our aim is to obtain the highest price possible for you in the shortest possible time with the least inconvenience.

With your wealth at stake you need to keep this in mind – Do you want someone on your side with integrity, honesty and a strong work ethic? If the answer is yes, then please speak to me as these are the qualities I live my life by.

If you are after a straight talking agent with tips and experience of how to gain the highest possible price for your property please call me on (03) 5134 2790 or 0407512455.

Sales Profile

With extensive experience and negotiating skills the sales team at BJ Bennett & Co Real Estate Pty Ltd is the ideal agent to assist in any residential, rural, commercial, industrial, and investment sales.

The real estate market can be fast paced and in a constant state of evolution. Deciding how best to sell your home is something that can be immensely stressful. We’re conscious of dealing with people and their lives.

As an enthusiastic and energetic sales team with extensive training, experience and knowledge in the Real Estate industry, we offer a superior standard of service and professionalism to the public.

Our goal is to provide you with a realistic price range, one that’s based upon our knowledge of the local market, its current dynamics as well as greater influences such as national and international economic conditions. To arrive at a market appraisal we use our expertise, recent comparable sales in your area, market variables, location of your property, property particulars and current market conditions to accurately assess and interpret the information that is available to us. We arrive at a figure that ranges between the conservative and optimistic with due considerations for all the factors that come into play.

Put simply, a market appraisal is the amount that a willing and informed purchaser will be prepared to pay based on how your property compares to similar properties on the market at that point in time.

To ensure maximum exposure for your property BJ Bennett & Co Real Estate Pty Ltd advertise on 12 different websites, window car, sales list and a ‘For Sale’ board out the front of the property.

It’s not uncommon for people to feel or suspect that agents inflate their estimates. It’s true, in some cases they do. Its partly human nature to want to show enthusiasm and a generous estimate is one way of demonstrating how keen they are for your business. We think there are more appropriate ways in which we can demonstrate our enthusiasm so we avoid this practice.
