Graeme & Jenny / Sellers

From the moment we met Ben & Mary Roberts we knew that we would be entrusting the sale of our property to the right people.

Our home for the past 22 years is quite unique and we initially chose Blackbird & Wren based on their proven track record of sales at the upper end of the market.

However there were so many more qualities we discovered: they are highly professional, great communicators, good listeners, highly skilled and adept in all facets of their work, extremely knowledgeable and passionate about our local area and very responsive to questions and any issues along the way.

They sold our home in 4 days and we couldn’t be happier.

Each step of the selling process was managed efficiently and skilfully, displaying their superb expertise in their field.

The commitment and dedication shown was reflected directly in the wonderful result

Maryanne Kelly / Seller

We loved dealing with Ben and Mary.

I never felt sold to, rushed, made to feel like I had big scary decisions to make, tons of things to do or thousands of dollars to spend.

They helped identify value added things we could do in the short amount of time we had to get our tenants out and the house prepared for market.

They worked to our schedule, our needs and delivered the outcome we wanted in the most stress free way possible.

Market launch to cash in the bank in just 5 weeks – couldn’t be happier with the result or the journey to get there.

Not your typical real estate agents. With them you aren’t just a number & you certainly aren’t treated as such, you become a part of their real estate family & they effortlessly make you feel as though you are their only client.

Their brand speaks for itself. They are the epitome of a boutique agency

We have been buyers through B&W and we have also been sellers. Ben and Mary are fair, professional and no-nonsense, they set realistic expectations from the beginning yet always aim higher, they work extremely hard to make sure things run as smoothly as possible to get you the best results, all whilst keeping you in the loop every step of the way. Our entire process was transparent, prompt and personal. The pride that they take in their work is admirable and it has been a pleasure to sell with them – and set a new street record!

Much like selling and buying a house, the right real estate agent is an investment. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that we invested well in Ben and Mary

Ben and Mary recently sold our family home in Sunbury & they were an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout the journey.

They conducted a national campaign to find a buyer & generated enormous interest from all over Australia.

Our property went on the market just as COVID-19 was escalating, so we were quite concerned that a sale would not be possible in our timeframe and certainly not within our price range. However, Ben and Mary worked tirelessly to achieve a wonderful outcome for us achieving a sale at a very challenging time & within our target range.

It was a new suburb record!

His diligent efforts, and attention to detail during the marketing campaign, led to our property achieving a record sales price for Sunbury (for a residential residence), in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic and whilst Victoria was in a state of emergency.

A tremendous effort, under exceptionally challenging circumstances, for which we are extremely grateful. Thank you and congratulations.

From a seller’s point of view that’s exactly what you want from your agent. .

Elaine Curtis / Seller

What a superb team, and such a rarety in Real Estate.The most genuine, caring, trustworthy real estate agents you’ll meet. The first time we contacted them, we ultimately decided to lease the property, and the second time we contacted them we decided to retain the property after all, so although I can’t comment on the full process they provide I felt the need to leave a review nonetheless. When we do finally sell, we’ll get back in touch for sure!

Laura / Seller

We knew instantly they could best represent our property.
We found them very honest, easy to work with, and full of wonderful advice.

Wherever your home sits in the market, rest assured with Ben and Mary, the exposure will be immense and result in more buyers and a great result.

Lucette / Seller

When choosing an agent, Ben and Mary stood out for their approach to the sale process and the family feel that resonated with us. Their marketing of the property was exceptional, and we were provided constant updates throughout the campaign. The transition through to unconditional offer was not as smooth as we hoped (no fault of Ben or Mary’s), but they always made themselves available and provide helpful advice. Their experience really shone through. We would highly recommend Ben and Mary to anyone looking to sell.

Ryan / Seller


No “hard sell” or salesman tricks when talking to us about listing with them, just down to earth facts and an honest approach to business.

Ben and Mary treated our house as if it were there own when presenting it for sale. They were realistic when quoting the selling price, yet sold for far and away the street record at the first open.

Couldn’t ask for more and would highly recommend. Thanks Blackbird and Wren!
