Christine and Barry were absolutely fantastic. Their communication and expertise in the market were second to none. Our property was on the market for less than a month and we are over the moon with the sale price. We couldn't have asked for a more professional and knowledgeable team. Thank you so much. We highly recommend Christine and Barry from Century 21!

We selected Barry McMurchie as the agent we wished to engage to sell our property in Heritage Springs, based on previous experience with Barry who had sold a property for us many years prior. Barry has always had a rare talent as an agent in that, he is always professional, diligent and listens to what the client wishes to achieve. He provides honest feedback and guidance where needed to ensure that prior, during and after the sale, the lines of communication are open and that there are no blurred lines and issues. We understand that many clients do not have such a pleasant experience with selling agents, but we are truly grateful for the opportunity to engage Barry in the sale of our home.

A PLEASURE TO DO BUSINESS WITH
Right from the very beginning Barry and his team were very professional with great knowledge of the current market and true expectations. Throughout the process Barry kept me informed of the number of people attending the open house and their feedback. Couldn't have asked for better service and result. Thanks Barry

MADE THE PROCESS EASY!
Barry is a GREAT Agent, who made this process very easy. As a seller who lives interstate & travels for work frequently, Barry went over and above to make the process a smooth one, keeping me informed while overseas and negotiating a result that I was happy with. Thanks Barry! JB
Jeremy Brown - Vendor
Firstly, I want to thank Barry and Christine for putting up with me. What a great result they have achieved for me, I am extremely happy with their service. They can be contacted at any time, if I had a question they would give me a report after every open to re assure me of the situation. It feels like they are part of our family. I would highly recommend Barry and Christine anytime for selling anyone's home. I wish them lots and lots of luck.
Tony Afzal - Vendor
From initial engagement to the end, Barry gave his heart to this deal and I have no doubt about recommending him to my friends and well-wishers wanting to sell.

NO NONSENSE AGENTS
Straight up Agents. We knew the first time we met Barry and Christine they would be our Agents once we decided to sell. Those two are no-nonsense professionals that provide a complete service with outstanding communication from beginning to end. In fact, they even found us our next property prior to selling, then managed the purchaser of our home to ensure the outcome was smooth for all involved. Based on our experience we highly recommend Barry and Christine to anyone searching for an Agent to trust.
Ivan & Manda Halas - Vendors

REPUTATION HIGHLY REGARDED
I had the great pleasure in dealing with Christine Quarrie and her husband Barry for the sale of a
2-bedroom unit (23 years old) property in Pakenham. Christine has wonderful communication and kept me informed on progress at every stage. The unit was on the market for only 5 days before a sale was made at the top of our expectations. Barry and Christine's knowledge of the Pakenham market and advice on how best to present the property for market was invaluable. Their reputation is highly regarded, but having experienced their service first hand I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them to anyone wishing participate in the real estate market, and would definitely use their services in the future.
Robert Wreith - Vendor
It was a great to see how the process of selling my house developed with such ease and without added stress for me or my family. To start with Christine and Barry really took careful note of all the aspects that made my house a great sale in terms of energy saving, size, comfort and special features. I thought of what would made my house special and attractive to the buyer. Christine and Barry not only listened but also when they advertised the property, made an extra effort to describe the property in every important detail and beyond the typical generic style. They included features that I thought were important to attract buyers. I could tell that they really were listening to what I wanted to say about my house and how I wanted it to be featured. Specially regarding the price which was crucial for me to get it right. They got me not only what I was expecting but even more. Along the same lines Christine and Barry seemed to have had such fun as they effortlessly handled the situation in a way that it was totally stress free and to MY total advantage and peace of mind; For my benefit, I might add, and not for the benefit of the buyer. Unlike the previous agent, It was refreshing to feel that in all and every aspect, my input into the selling process counted for something. Christine and Barry had my back all along and respected my views on the matter of selling my most important and valuable asset. I thank you guys for supporting me and validate me throughout this life changing event that if I hadn't encountered you it wouldn't have gone as well as it did. Thank you!
SOLD IN A WEEK/ NO STRESS
I am very happy I chose Barry and Christine to sell my house, they sold my house with in one week of going on to the market, making selling my house a very stress free experience. I found Barry and Christine to be very honest, up front and professional with the sale of my house. Christine has kept in contact offering assistance if need be in finding another house. Christine treats you like a friend, not a number. I would not hesitate recommending Barry and Christine to sell your house. Thanks Again,
Trish - Vendor
VERY PROFESSIONAL AND ORGANISED
Christine and Barry were very timely and professional. From the time I made initial contact and the time my house was sold, it took only 3 weeks; the house was sold in 2 weeks, with a satisfactory outcome. When Christine and Barry first met with me, they gave very clear, transparent and comprehensive information. They were happy to answer any questions that I was throwing at them. Christine helped a lot in getting the house ready for inspection, coaching me on a few aspects. It was a good team effort and prospective buyers were impressed with the presentation. Christine and Barry were very friendly and went beyond and above - they were a pleasure to work with.. Best of luck to Christine and Barry.
FRIENDLY, HELPFUL AND KNOWLEDGABLE AGENTS
Barry McMurchie and Christine Quarrie from Century 21 were a fantastic team of agents to work with. They were very supportive, listened to our goals and the results exceeded our expectations.

GREAT AGENT, GREAT OUTCOME
Soon after I contacted Barry, I received a full market report in the area I was selling my property and was very impressed with the way the report was presented. The price obtained was the high end of the range quoted by Barry and was very pleased with the outcome. Will certainly not hesitate to use Barry again.
Kesh Thurairasa – Officer Vendor
I have had a great experience dealing with Barry. He answered all my enquiries promptly and did a great job in marketing my mum's property. The property had an offer on the first open which we accepted. The whole process happened so quickly and now my mum is able to move closer to us. I would highly recommend Barry to sell your home.
Mandeep Dominguez – Pakenham Vendor

GREAT SERVICE AND COMMUNICATION
Barry and Christine were great through the whole process. We started with a quiet meeting in our home with the two of them, and from the start we felt comfortable with their persona's and attitude towards being the agent of choice. After engaging them as the ones to sell our house, Christine and Barry communicated their thoughts on what we should do to make the place presentable, which turned out to be great advice. When the photos were taken and the property went on the market, the house looked awesome, and sold for more than what we expected. We would highly recommend using Barry and Christine to sell houses in the Pakenham area, as they seem to really know what is happening and what the market trends are. Thanks heaps again.
