A little bit about Michael...
One of Bentleigh’s most experienced and capable real estate professionals, Michael Egan has stepped beyond his position as a Director of Century 21 on Centre to hold a respected profile in the industry - most notably as a former President of the Malvern/Caulfield Branch of Real Estate Institute of Victoria.
A fully Licensed Estate Agent and an experienced Auctioneer, Michael commenced his real estate career in Bentleigh East and has continued to specialise in the Bentleigh, Bentleigh East, McKinnon, Ormond and surrounding suburbs in the 26 years since. In that time, Michael has gained a wealth of knowledge, a reputation for superior negotiating skills and a history of excellent results - with over a thousand successful sales and hundreds of referrals from satisfied clients.
Michael’s philosophy is to act with a sense of urgency and to “always treat people as you would wish to be treated” and has found that this philosophy has well and truly stood the test of time!

Sale of the family home
My parents have lived in this house for 64 years! As they are in their 80s I helped them with selecting an agent. Michael explained all aspects of the sale the process to them clearly and concisely. They knew what the all the costs would be and the process he would use to sell the house. He kept us informed through all of the open for inspections. He made sure that the publicity was outstanding and he made sure that the main bidders were at the auction. He ran a great auction and negotiated a sale price that was significantly more that we expected. We have no hesitation in recommending Michael.

The best agent around
We have engaged Michael twice now to sell properties. We originally met him at an Open for inspection for another property. We were so impressed by his honest and direct communication when looking at another house we decided to contact him about selling our house. We were impressed by the fact that Michael is not your traditional sales person who makes everything sound wonderful and is over the top with flowery language. He is down to earth and gives an honest appraisal of your house. He listened to what we wanted and sold the house the way we wanted as opposed to trying to convince us if we did not go immediately to auction our house would never sell. Both times we have listed properties with Michael (14 years apart), he has sold both properties after 1 open for inspection and well, well above what we hoped to get. His style for engaging with potential buyers works for the vendor, and means less mucking around and back and forth. Michael has very sound knowledge of the industry and the areas he works in. I hope he is around when we next want to sell as he would be the first person I call.

We both felt very comfortable with Michael Egan from the minute we first met him. The service and advise was second to none, follow up after every open house was excellent. We achieved a great result at auction, as the property was sold under the hammer. I would certainly use Michael again.
Sheila Hamilton - McKinnon
I have now both bought and sold through Michael Egan of Century 21 Bentleigh.Both as a purchaser and vendor on both occasions have found him extremely professional.From start to finish, of my recent sale, the whole experience was very stress free.
His attention and prompt communication kept me well informed throughout.I never felt any pressure, even though it turned out to be a very short campaign, selling well above expectations in a rapidly changing market.
Michaels experience and advice was invaluable.I would not hesitate to highly recommend Michael for any prospective real estate dealings.
J. Hitchcock - Bentleigh
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Michael over the last ten years. He has sold my three houses, all with amazing results and each under different circumstances - offer before auction, 'blind' auction and actual auction - each time the result has been well beyond expectation! Michael's wealth of experience ensures he can handle pretty much anything that comes his way and his success comes down to hard work, honesty, integrity and a genuine care towards both clients and prospective buyers. I can not fault Michael or his team and would never consider putting my home in anyone else's hands but Michael's.
Michael thanks for yet another amazing result last week. I'm still in shock!
Netasha Di Crosta - Brighton East
I first met Michael when we bought the un-renovated house in 1998 and at the time I thought Michael Egan was not your typical ‘pushy’ real estate salesman. He was helpful, informative and “”told it like it was”. So when the time came to sell the property, we went back to Michael for his advice. Again, I felt that he would be a good advocate for us and tell the buyers the truth of the market conditions and what to expect at the auction.
So my advice to you - go with Michael Egan and Century 21, trust them because they know this market and they know what they are talking about!.
Jill Clarke - Ormond
At all times I was comfortable with your advice and procedures. They were explained in a very clear manner. I appreciated that after the open day inspections I was informed of the progress and interest in the property. It was all heartening news. It was very clear to see on the day of the auction your professionalism contributed to the sale. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any future seller.
Frank B. Green - Bentleigh
Before engaging Michael Egan to manage the sale of my house, I spoke to all the Bentleigh agents. I have no doubt that I made the best choice. Michael's easy yet professional manner was comfortable for me to work with and I appreciated his advice, always based on his experience. ... I would certainly recommend you to any future seller.
