Adrian Venturi is a high achiever by nature. Born and bred in Avalon and Bilgola, he attended Narrabeen Sports High, catering to his prodigious talent for tennis. After leaving school he won a full scholarship to attend Northern Arizona University (NAU) in the US and completed a Business Degree graduating with Honours in 2002. He returned to Australia to play tennis on the World Circuit for 3 years, before resettling in Avalon to commence his sales career, initially in IT.
In 2008 Adrian began working as a licensed real estate agent, focussing on Bilgola Plateau and based in Avalon. Just as the GFC started to kick in and long-time agents started leaving the industry, Adrian decided to really take it on: He began his steady ascent of Bilgola Plateau. Of course, since then he has conquered The Plateau and is now well established as the most successful agent working in that market, selling more than double the amount of property (for properties over $1,000,000) than any other agent over the last 2 years and achieving multiple street records and literally thousands of supporters.
Adrian has always understood how important his performance is to the outcome for his clients. He knows his business relies on satisfied customers – and there are lots of those! You would be hard pressed to find an agent with so many heartfelt testimonials. Typical of them are comments such as this one from Bilgola resident Pam Isherwood:
“Adrian, an excellent result! Of course, it would not have been possible without your tremendous communication, negotiation and mediation skills. We are thrilled with the sale price and couldn’t be happier with your service. Thank you so very much for helping to organise all the finer details - in our absence too…it has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you!”
Adrian has a reputation of being somewhat of a ‘workaholic’ on behalf of his clients often found working until late in the evening ensuring his clients are provided the highest level of service. His secret to success is simple old fashioned loyalty, hard work, honesty and integrity. Adrian specialises in private treaty and auction sales and is committed to not only achieving the highest price, but to also offer expert advice and outstanding customer service in the process.
Adrian mentors a number of younger members at Careel Bay Tennis Club.
"Adrian Venturi was recently ranked as the second highest selling salesperson nationally, out of over 1200 agents from more than 240 CENTURY 21 offices throughout Australia and New Zealand. Based on the total value of properties sold throughout the 2015 calendar year, Adrian was acknowledged for this outstanding achievement at CENTURY 21's NSW/ACT Annual Awards held at Sydney's Four Seasons Hotel on Saturday 5th March."
Ryan Dunn National Brand Manager CENTURY 21 Australia
“A new experience in selling - a pity five stars is the highest! The sale of our unit this year was a completely new experience for which it had many areas of concerns for us. Adrian quietly took us through the process and gave us the time to make the best decision that suited our needs. Once underway Adrian's communication and was faultless along with his advice on presentation and timing of the sale. Thank you Adrian for your sense of humour, consideration and support”.
"This is the 2nd time we have used Adrian and again we were not disappointed. His knowledge of properties not only surrounding Avalon, Newport and Bilgola but along the Northern Beaches was unbelievable. We listen and trusted Adrian and with all his hard work and determination we got the best result. We are over the moon and we would not use anyone else but Adrian when buying or selling a house along the beaches."
"Purchase of a beautiful property. Adrian is extremely professional and helpful as well as being a straight shooter and a strong communicator. He responded to questions immediately and was open about the process and how it would proceed. He took time out of his busy schedule to give us private viewings and we never felt rushed. Very excited about moving in!"
Pam and Roger Rowlinson
"We asked Adrian to visit our house simply to get a second opinion on the value of our house; however Adrian knocked our socks off with his presentation, so much so that we decided to sign up with him, and we are delighted that we did. He is also just a really nice person, and as selling a house is such a stressful journey, it sure helps to have a great, caring, hard-working agent on your side! He kept us fully informed at all times. Adrian's knowledge of the market, professionalism and communication skills are extremely impressive. We cannot recommend him enough!"
John & Sue
"Excellent customer service. Adrian was a pleasure to deal with in our efforts to buy a home. Despite missing out several times at auction Adrian's advice was sound and we remained patient until the right house came around and we were ready when it did. He always remains professional and was always accessible by phone email and in person. I would recommend him highly regardless of whether you are buying or selling."
"King Of The Plateau! He's a bewdy. Good Guy is not a job description but he is one of those as well."
"It is with great pleasure to give Adrian Venturi a shining review. Leading up to and during our campaign to sell my house Adrian communicated with myself and all potential buyers giving me every piece of feedback all the way through until the end. I never felt out of touch with what was happening with the campaign and I am very happy with the settlement. Adrian worked extremely hard and did a fantastic job. I have already highly recommended Adrian to all of my friends in the area and if I ever buy and sell on the northern beaches again I will be asking for Adrian to be my agent once again without hesitation."
"Adrian was a clear communicator, responded quickly to all questions, even before we were buyers, facilitated stress free negotiations and made the whole experience smooth.. We are really happy."
"We are absolutely thrilled with our purchase and honestly could not be happier with the service that we received from Adrian. Although he was committed to obtaining the best result for his vendor, we were treated with the upmost courtesy and respect throughout the entire process. Adrian has excellent communication skills and a wide knowledge in his field and of the area. Adrian conducted himself with absolute professionalism and we would not hesitate to use him in the future."
"Adrian Venturi should be your only choice of agent – the thought of selling our family home was daunting to say the least. Once we made the decision to actually start the process – our first question was who do we choose as our selling agent? As we had been receiving property market updates and the odd "how's it going?" phone call from Adrian Venturi for almost the entire time we have resided in this home, he was the first person we thought of. An appointment was made for the following Saturday morning at 9.00am. We were expecting a 30 minute sales pitch involving a proposal and a speech about how good the agency is and what they can do. Adrian instead gave a complete overview of the process including the pitfalls, the pro’s verses the con’s of different sales methods, and a very good run through about the current market in the local area - recent sales etc, and ideas about sales strategies. We then walked around our home and Adrian gave straightforward recommendations about getting the property 'sale ready' i.e. painting, styling and general cleaning/maintenance. He also discussed the costs, fees and monetary outgoings – all open and very clear. The decision to go ahead was easy and the process began. We received lots of contact, good feedback, and plenty of encouragement with each step in the process. The first open inspection confirmed our decision to use Adrian was the correct decision. He was so very professional - on time and everything planned perfectly, with the marketing material reflecting his attention to detail during the photography sessions. After our first open inspection, Adrian clearly and confidently walked us through the offers that were received and guided us to making our decisions resulting in offer acceptance and contract exchanges. Adrian works tirelessly for vendors and buyers to gain the best result for everyone. We had a great experience and will be recommending him very highly to anyone who will listen!"
Helen and Matthew Holman
"From the first time we met him, Adrian was helpful, introducing us to the special character of the local area and attentive to what type of house we were looking for. He went out of his way to show us the properties he thought would suit us. When we had made our decision to buy, Adrian was able to rapidly bring vendor and purchaser together on price. It's always a pleasure to deal with considerate and knowledgeable people, when making one of the big decisions in life. Thank you, Adrian."
Ted and Jenny Higginbotham
"We had been looking for a place to downsize for months. We were looking in the Inner City or Eastern Suburbs, even the suburbs fronting the Parramatta River from Balmain to Abbotsford. Nothing suitable for our budget. For some reason, we decided to look a little further afield. So we searched the Northern Beaches. Pretty soon we realised that for the price of a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, I car space unit in the Inner City we could get a 4 bedroom house with 3 bathrooms and a car space for the same price at Avalon Beach. It would be like being on permanent holiday, if we could pull it off. So one Saturday in January 2016, we headed up to Newport and Avalon with a selection of open houses. Mr. Adrian Venturi, agent extraordinaire, was hosting two of these inspections. We got talking and told him what we were looking for. “Why don’t you come back next week, say Tuesday, and I will show you all the other suitable properties I have on the books.” “Yes, that sounds fine. Thanks. We’ll do that.” Tuesday afternoon arrives. We drive up to Avalon. We see a house on Hudson Parade, another on Lower Plateau Road and then the final one on Riviera Avenue. We discussed the three properties and one was for us.
By Friday we had negotiated a price and exchanged contracts, all after only half an hour viewing and a pest and building inspection. All this was ably negotiated by Adrian Venturi, with vendor and purchaser getting the best possible price. No fuss. All done and dusted in one week. The only reason Adrian may not have a house on his books is because he is too quick at selling them all. Best wishes to you, Adrian. Regards"
Ted and Jenny Higginbotham.
"Outstanding experience! We had been looking for a property for nearly a year before we settled on the house we now live in. During this time I truly got to understand why estate agents get such a bad name. That is until we met Adrian, he really is a standout operator. From his precise communication to his empathy and understanding of making what is probably the largest purchase of your life, he acted with a level of professionalism that was unparallelled, with any estate agent we had engaged with prior. We purchased the property with a true feeling that he had negotiated the most equitable and fair deal for both us and the vendor. We are very thankful to Adrian for making the whole process very easy."
"Dedication & Amazing Service! My husband & I were blown away with Adrian's professional approach and his overall dedication. Not only did he assist with the purchase of our new home, but he advised us on how to overcome some difficulties with the sale of our previous home. I have no hesitation in recommending Adrian to anyone thinking of purchasing a home on "the Plateau". Adrian's knowledge and capability is second to none. I could not believe the hours that Adrian put in to achieve a sale. He was always available when we needed him. I will definitely consult with Adrian on our property matters into the future."
"We had a very positive experience with Adrian Venturi whom we engaged to sell our house in Bilgola Plateau. Adrian was very professional, honest and forward thinking with his approach to market the property. He kept us regularly informed during the process and was quick to respond to our queries. We were very pleased with the work he put in to sell our property and would highly recommend Adrian to others."
Luke & Aime van Dyck
"I have had two properties handled by Adrian. Both of these experiences were extremely pleasant, comfortable and gratifying. At all times Adrian was the ultimate professional. We were constantly informed of the actions Adrian was taking on our behalf. This gave us confidence that every aspect of the sale of our properties were being dealt with in a professional manner. I'm sure Adrian’s demeanour gave us confidence but also gave confidence to the people buying our properties that all aspects of the final price were handled in a professional manner. We also enjoyed sitting down with Adrian at our kitchen table and chatting with him. Adrian was very forthcoming with his views on life in general which gave us confidence that we were dealing with a respectful young man with much integrity."
Peter & Allison Bosley
"We have been really busy after we purchased the property from Adrian Venturi but I have always wanted to let you and the management know how much we appreciate Adrian's service and help before, during and after the sale.
As we both work and time is usually not on our side, Adrian made a late appointment for us to inspect the house and by the time we finished, it was past 8.30 pm. We were apologetic for keeping him so late but he genuinely said that he didn't mind.
On the day of the auction, Adrian introduced us to the original builder of the house as we had some concerns regarding the foundation of the house. Adrian really knows how to alleviate buyers' concerns.
After the sale, I have some queries and Adrian answered all my queries in a timely fashion including non property related questions as what internet providers to use etc.
I feel that a letter of appreciation is the least I can do and I do want to let you know how fortunate that your business has someone like Adrian."
Jeannie & David Wang
"Collaborative, guiding, knowledgeable and accountable.Having met many agents that promise and then slowly retract from their earlier commitments, Adrian is different. Rather than trying to impress you with the $'s you could get Adrian talks you through the market, realities, buyers, whims and then assesses the position. Over time hi communication, engagement grows as you truly collaborate to an outcome. His knowledge is deep and you can trust his judgement."
"Over the past four years Adrian has sold two of my family's homes; Newport and Bilgola Plateau. His commitment to the task of selling for the best price is exceptional. Of all his great qualities, I rate his confidentiality as the best."
“Our experience with Adrian from the time we met him to the finalisation of the sale could only be described as exceptional. Adrian was extremely knowledgeable and a very good communicator. Our house was sold in the time frame suggested and for the price we expected. We found Adrian to be very focused and would highly recommend him as an real-estate agent.”
Nigel Irvine & Elizabeth Nila
“We used Adrian's services to sell a rental property in Avalon Beach while living in the United States, making it a fairly complicated transaction involving not only the sale, but also dealing with an Attorney, tenant and money transfer, etc. All of which he handled with no problems, while maintaining excellent communication with us through out. He also took care of preparing the house for sale, involving everything from painting and yard work to interior styling. Adrian came to us highly recommended, and we couldn't have been more pleased with the efficient way that the entire procedure was handled.”
Thanks for your call earlier to confirm our sale settlement. Gary and I wanted to formally thank you for your role in this significant event.
After a long settlement period, we are delighted to be drawing a close on the chapter - and we are still feeling today that, together, we achieved the best result. We had many happy years in our old home and the process of selling it was made as easy as it could have been through your assistance, guidance, initiative and persistence.
Getting a home that has been lived in for a while ready for the market is not necessarily a simple process. You handled this with sensitivity - and some great contacts to help us prepare. We felt you were responsive to our questions and concerns and we always felt that our selling strategy was a collaborative process. Your knowledge of the Bilgola Plateau market, and how it fits into the wider region, was exceptional and we felt that you were truly working on our behalf to get the right sale, rather than just any sale.
Thank you again for your efforts and a great result. We hope not to be using your services again in the near future, as our intention is to stay put in our new home - however, we would not hesitate to recommend you to others.
Deb and Gary Denman
"We recently sold our house at Bilgola Plateau and Adrian Venturi was our agent. Adrian's commitment to us was evident from day one, as he was present at every open house and was in contact after each inspection to give us an overview of how everything went. This was then followed up with reports to give us a greater understanding of who was coming to view our home and what their thoughts were.
We trusted Adrian from the start, he really helped us feel at ease throughout the whole process and his thorough understanding of the market, not just in Avalon and Bilgola was instrumental in securing the sale of our home.
We would highly recommend Adrian Venturi, he is trustworthy and very passionate about his work. We would of never have sold our house so quickly and smoothly if it wasn’t for his experience and dedication.
Thank you for everything,"
Elliot & Samantha Ryan
"I can add little to the glowing descriptions of Adrian in previous testimonials; they are all true. I had no hesitation in giving Adrian the full 5 star ranking for all criteria on the ratemyagent.com.au website: credibility, market knowledge, communication skills, negotiation skills and overall satisfaction.
My elderly mother and I were selling my parents' home in Avalon following the death of my father, with neither of us living in Sydney. On top of the impeccable service that Adrian gives to local clients, Adrian bent over backwards to help us get the house ready for inspections and the auction - doing many extra things for us that we could not do ourselves from afar, removing the need for us to frequently travel long distances to Avalon to attend to the preparations ourselves. Settlement ended up being some months after the auction, with Adrian continuing to provide this extra service for us right up until the actual day of settlement. It was a pleasure to have Adrian as our agent.
"We are extremely pleased with Adrian’s professional attention he gave to us during the weeks prior to & after the sale of our property -19 Mariposa Rd. Bilgola Plateau. His suggestions to improve the presentation of our property were spot on & these improvements helped us stand out from the rest.
His demeanour & personal approach was very much appreciated as the selling of a property, as has happened to us in the past, can be a harrowing experience. Adrian took a way this burden. We highly recommend Adrian to anyone wishing to buy or sell a property.
Dianne & Lance Williams
"We were thrilled by the result achieved by Adrian Venturi for our house at 55 Cabarita Rd Avalon. After the property had been listed with another agent for 7 months with no satisfactory results, we provided Adrian with the opportunity to market our property. We were amazed when he achieved a fantastic price after less than 2 weeks on the market! We would recommend Adrian and Century 21 Avalon to anyone looking to sell their home in the area."
Matt Dell & Brad Reid
“My husband and I wanted to let you know how incredibly impressed we have been with one of your agents, Adrian Venturi.
Adrian recently sold us a property in Newport & has been a delight to deal with from the start. In fact, when I first met him at an open home in Bilgola, I came away & said “I want to buy house from that man". Coincidentally we did, and we couldn’t be happier it was through Adrian, or with the way he has dealt with us all along.
Adrian clearly knows the area which of course is an asset, but it is his unique genuineness, lovely warm nature, and his willingness to go 'above & beyond', and to be available to assist with any need or enquiry (sometimes at crazy hours of the night!!) that has impressed us so greatly.
From a buyer new to the area, it has been very comforting to be able to fully trust the agent representing the vendor selling us their home. Adrian's enormous & sometimes humorous 'commitment to the cause' means we would recommend him to anyone buying or selling in the area.
Please acknowledge our appreciation of Adrian's efforts & those of Century 21 Avalon."
Narelle & Peter Mann
“Adrian came to us highly recommended to us by three separate people that had purchased and sold properties through him.After using Adrian for the sale of our own property we would highly recommend him. Adrian’s knowledge and experience were obvious and his strategy for achieving a great price proved to be a success. Throughout the selling process Adrian was generous with his time and kept us well informed with how things were progressing. We sold inside one week and his negotiation skills were outstanding. Even after the sale Adrian continued to work hard for us gaining improved settlement conditions. Adrian is sincere, approachable and extremely professional, as were the entire team at Century 21. We would certainly use his services again”
Anthony & Rachelle O’Toole
“I am writing to thank you for the outstanding job you did with the recent sale of my home. The result you achieved surpassed even my most optimistic expectations, and to have done so before going to auction meant I was spared the anxiety and stress of the whole auction process.
I first met you two years ago, when you first came to appraise the property, and I was impressed by the amount of time you spent with me that day describing the condition of the Bilgola Plateau market at that time, as well as explaining the relative merits of various sales strategies and the costs involved. I had several agents visit me at that time, and you were the only one that didn’t apply some sort of pressure to get a commission. In the two years since I haven’t failed to notice the growing number of successful sales you have achieved, especially in Bilgola Plateau.
Rachel and I definitely feel that we made the right decision with our choice of agent when it eventually came time to sell. I must compliment the whole team at Century 21 Avalon because everything happened on schedule, and with a minimum of fuss – no mean feat I imagine, at such a busy time of year for you all. In particular, could you please extend our thanks to Sienna and Alex for their work. They were a pleasure to deal with and we were very pleased with the resulting shots.
I will certainly be recommending you to anyone I know who is thinking of selling. Many thanks."
“Adrian has been instrumental in the preparation for and execution of the sale of our home. His advice over many years has been invaluable and on this occasion his judgement about the timing was spot in. We were able to sell almost immediately after the first open house. He is thorough both before during and after the process as well as being authentic the whole way through. Many thanks for everything.”
"I had the good fortune of working with Adrian to sell my Bilgola home. I'd encountered long delays selling at a fair price via another agent, but within days of switching to Adrian we had better offers, multiple inspections and greatly increased energy! After only 4 weeks we had sold for the right price. Adrian's strategies, interpersonal manner and professional skills are second to none in this industry. I couldn't recommend him more highly to anyone who simply needs the best. Sincere thanks Adrian and look forward to next time."
"Thank you Adrian for all your help selling my house in Bilgola. I appreciate your kind and professional help along the way. It was never a problem for you to go out of your way to help my sale run smoothly."
“Well, again, congrats on the sale – who would have thought – 33 days, from initial contract to a sale, surely that’s a record? Excellent result and, of course, would not have been possible without your tremendous communication, negotiation and mediation skills. We are thrilled with the sale price and couldn’t be happier with your service. Thank you so very much for helping us organise all the finer details in our absence too… it has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you."
“Now that you’ve finalised the sale of our home and also helped us with the purchase of another property, Megan and I wanted to personally thank you for your steadfast professionalism, dedication and determination.
We met a lot of local agents throughout this process but none of them had anywhere near your level of local knowledge of the Bilgola market. The fact that you were born in Bilgola and you knew every recent sale in every street was just remarkable.
Communication is so important during the sale of anyone’s home. I just could not fault your communication. You personally turned up to every single open home and called that same Saturday afternoon without fail to give us a thorough briefing.
However, I think the final negotiation is where you really stood out from the crowd. With three potential purchasers requesting a contract almost on the same day, most real estate agents would have quickly set them against each other. You didn’t need to do that and you were very honest and fair with each of them.
Please don’t hesitate to pass on my details to any Bilgola homeowner looking for a reference on your services.
Thanks again Adrian.”
Simon & Megan Terry
“From beginning to end, Adrian has led us through the selling process magnificently, taking the time to get to know us and understand the value we believed our property presented. As you know this has not been an easy time to sell property and there recently been other properties in Bilgola that have sold for a large percentage lower than their original asking price.
When we ultimately found a buyer, Adrian skilfully walked the line between vendor and purchaser, bringing in a deal, which I believe both sides were happy with.
Adrian has made a great name for himself and is well respected on the Plateau. A number of our friends on the plateau who buy and sell reasonably regularly, and are tied to other agents with previous sales, are I think reassessing who will look after their property sales in the future, in light of our house sale!
We wish Adrian the best for the future, and are both so grateful for the way he has handled both us and the property.”
Jonathan & Susie Hartland
“We recently sold our property in Bilgola and when looking to buy back into the area, we knew we could trust Adrian to work with us and have our best interest at heart. During our buying experience Adrian Venturi provided us with incredible service, showing us properties that were for the sale quietly, listed with another agent in his office and even referred us to look at properties that weren’t in his office!
We felt the whole time that Adrian was working with us, with focus on selecting the right home, not just buying for the sake of buying.
Even though we did not eventually buy through Adrian, we want any purchaser or owner to be aware of our positive experience and have no hesitation recommending Adrian to anyone searching for honest and superior service.”
Heidi & Francois Cleret
“It is with much pleasure that I can recommend Adrian Venturi for any real estate dealings that anyone might have. I found him to be most helpful and professional in the time that it took to sell my house. Everything was made clear and it was a very pleasant experience for me.”
“Thank you for the professional and diligent manner in which you managed the successful sale of my home. Your expertise, invaluable advice, comprehensive approach and attention to detail ensured we achieved an excellent outcome. From vendor’s perspective, selection of the right Real Estate Agent to manage the sale process is critical. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any prospective client(s)."
“Adrian Venturi is a very client focused real estate agent. I had known him for three years prior to selling my mother’s home. There was no doubt that Adrian was going to be the best person to sell the property and get the best price.
He provided an honest appraisal and a very sound advice on preparing the property for sale and we jointly agreed on the best strategy to approach the campaign.
Adrian kept me fully informed at all stages of the process, with regular updates both verbal and written. I’m convinced Adrian achieved the best price possible for my mother in a very short time frame and the whole process was concluded in a professional and very timely manner.
I’d highly recommend Adrian to anyone selling in the area.”
“We are very pleased with the recent sale of our home for a good price.
Adrian, you were able to achieve a good price in a soft, buyers’ market. We would like to thank you for your hard work and skilled negotiation and would recommend you, without hesitation, to any vendor looking for a hardworking, reliable, honest, skilled negotiator.
We were particularly impressed with how you prided yourself on knowing every detail of our property and how you always kept us informed (even when we were overseas). We always felt that you were working very hard to achieve the best result for us.”
Ferne & Ian Pardey
“At all times Adrian performed impeccably. We found Adrian to be consistently focussed, through and attentive to the process.
Adrian is not only personable; he is also tenacious, attending to both the business and the people involved with equal ability.
We would recommend Adrian wholeheartedly, and have no hesitation whatsoever in asking him to assist us with future real estate matters.”
Robyn & James Fyfe
“Adrian Venturi’s professionalism and customer service skills underpinned his knowledge and expertise within the Northern Beaches real estate market to deliver to my family and me the most pleasing experience whilst purchasing our new home. He managed the sale/purchase from start to finish, smoothing out any “bumps” along the way ensuring that little or no stressful situations arose. He was available throughout the weeks to answer any and all of our questions and was more than helpful going above and beyond on many occasions to supply additional information and further assist us. I have had a lot of experience with Real Estate Sales Agents and I would have no reservations recommending Adrian to potential buyers or vendors.”
