My wife and l would like to thank Colin Rounds from Rounds Real Estate in selling our commercial property. We contacted Colin to discuss our property after an unsuccessful campaign with a previous agency, we then proceeded to engage his agency which turned out to be a blessing. His enthusiasm and experience won Dawn and myself over and advised us what was needed to help sell our property, as a consequence of us appointing Rounds Real Estate our property was sold within 4 weeks of being advertised. The price we achieved was extremely acceptable and the settlement terms suited us immensely, Colin’s negotiation and communication skills were fantastic and contributed in a prompt sale. We would not hesitate in appointing Colin again in the future, and highly recommend Rounds Real Estate to anyone who is thinking of selling their property. Great work Colin! – Noel & Dawn Long 0414 503 280

If you are intending to sell I highly recommend Colin Rounds and his team at Rounds Real Estate – Rob Gates 0418 577 139

We appointed Rounds Real Estate to sell our property after being referred to their agency, after meeting with 2 other agencies, we decided to appoint Rounds Real Estate for various reasons and knowing that the Principal/Director Colin Rounds formerly worked for one of Victoria’s largest franchise group before establishing in own agency in 2010. His experience, knowledge of the real estate market and personalized service along with Greg Dixon was outstanding. Their understanding of our requirements and flexibility with open inspections helped us immensely, Greg and Colin recommended we Auction our property and to consider the idea of selling prior to Auction should an offer be made that we were happy to accept. As a consequence, Greg and Colin work throughout the campaign was amazing and were able to negotiate and receive offers from number of buyers prior to Auction before finally accepting the highest offer being offered, the settlement terms also met our requirements.
The price we received for our property was well above our initial expectations and the service was awesome, we would highly recommend Greg and Colin from Rounds Real Estate to anyone who is wanting to sell their property and who are looking for an agency that delivers on what they say plus more. We will be sure to appoint Greg and Colin again to sell our property should we decide to sell in the years to come. Great work Greg and Colin, our family is greatly appreciative of your effort and honesty. – Ryan and Laura 0418 100 573

We first became involved with ‘Rounds Real Estate’ when Colin was appointed the Property Manager of our family property in Camberwell approximately 4 years ago in 2013. During this time, through his Management team, property was kept in as good condition as could be expected with the lawns and gardens maintained and maintenance, repairs and replacements carried out as efficiently as could be expected.  During this time, we had three tenants, all of whom looked after our property as if it was their own.
After 4 years the decision was made to sell the house. We approached 4 Real Estate companies for quotes and appointed Colin and his agency as the selling agent.  A major factor in us making this decision was due to way Colin and his team managed our property, Colin’s enthusiasm, experience, and the organising in having our property prepared for Auction was outstanding.
We had no regrets in appointing Colin as our Sales Agent as he was courteous and polite at all times, kept us fully informed of all enquiries and lastly conducted the Auction in a totally professional manner. We, as a family, are more than happy with the result he and his staff achieved at the Auction –  Philip & Barbara Seabrook 0419 309 114

After finally making the decision to sell my apartment l did not have a clue what to do until l met Colin Rounds, the Principal/Director of Rounds Real Estate. We met accidentally at an inspection of an apartment where he was conducting one as well, I engaged his services and have never looked back since. He was so professional and positive and l liked him immediately.
He attended my apartment for an appraisal and provided me with advice on how to prepare in getting ready to sell and how he would achieve a great result, l was able to sell my apartment due to Colin’s experience, negotiating skills, people skills and excellent work ethic. Colin made me feel so comfortable and kept me informed throughout the sale and provided me with valuable advice in buying a new property which l assisted me with and was even present at the inspection and for the signing of the contracts at no charge which was extremely generous and thoughtful.

Having recently moved to the coast and needing to lease out my beloved home in Glen Iris I turned to the internet to locate a reputable property manager in the area. I was looking for a property manager that offered above average service, didn’t manage too many properties and had reasonable fees. I came across Rounds Real Estate and they seemed to have quite good reviews online. My initial dealing was with the Director and Principal Colin Rounds. As you would expect from the Director of a business, Colin was extremely personable, knowledgeable, efficient and helpful. Colin made me feel instantly at ease and won me over with his proactive and professional approach, and friendly nature. Colin was extremely proactive with communication and advice throughout the process of leasing my house; providing feedback on home opens and potential tenants. Within 2 weeks of appointing Rounds they had leased out my property at well above the market average in the area. Colin and the team at Rounds exceeded my expectations and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking to rent their home

It is so rare to find businesses that are truly customer focused, but Rounds Real Estate is this and so much more. Thanks again to Colin and the team for all their help! – Holly Clamp

After previously selling two other properties in the Glen Waverley area through local Agencies and not achieving the prices we expected we were in the process of looking for an alternative Agent when a close friend referred us to Rounds Real Estate. We were told that Colin Rounds, the principal, has a reputation for attaining great pricing for vendors. After interviewing Colin, who asked us money questions to find out exactly what we wanted to achieve out of the sale, we engaged him to sell our property. He suggested an Auction but had a goal to sell before Auction date to achieve the best price, we both thought this was different approach to the usual Agencies. As he was also independent we felt he could access buyers over a wider area whereas other Agencies are more restricted. He did have previous local experience having worked within the area with another large Agency. We were very impressed with the amount of people that attended each “Open House” which he and his other Agents held.
After achieving six great offers we accepted an offer which was well in excess of our expectation by $150,000 from a buyer who will live in the house. My wife and I would have no hesitation in using Rounds Real Estate in the future and have referred friends to him as well who are considering selling. We are very happy vendors, so much so that after considering retirement l recently joined Colin at Rounds Real Estate as a Sales Consultant. – Greg and Sandy Dixon  0413 758 788

Colin was always contactable, always returned our calls and kept us informed at all times as well as providing us valuable advice in buying and selling our home.

Recently I sold my property in Camberwell employing Rounds Real Estate as my agent. I was pleased to find Colin’s service courteous and professional during the entire period, from the initial consultation to the settlement. I was most pleased to receive an acceptable offer on the property two and a half weeks after employing Colin and his team. I believe it was due to their knowledge of the area and their dedication to achieving the sale. I highly recommend employing Rounds Real Estate. Anne Burrows

To Rounds Real Estate, dear Colin thank you very much for your kind and professional help during the sale of my parent’s property. We all appreciated the patience you had with my father who is quite elderly and set in his ways.  Not only did you understand his anxieties about leaving his home of many years, but you offered him assistance and guidance in choosing his new home. Our family was reassured by your honesty and your knowledge of realistic values of properties in the Camberwell area. Both our dad and the family were very pleased with the price that you achieved for the old family home and not for one moment did we feel that our dad was not being looked after. Keep up the good work and we look forward to doing business with you again” – George Tarantis & Family
