Cate Corso
Breearne provided excellent service in organising and administering the tenancy of our property. She is honest and practical in her approach. I would recommend Breearne and her team at Connect Real Estate to anyone looking for property management.
Jane Roma
Breearne is a dedicated and very personable Property Manager who goes over and above for her clientele. Warm and friendly also. Would highly recommend this real estate agency.

Kim Haynes
After searching the local market for a real estate agent in the Macedon Ranges to sell our property, we found that Helen’s knowledge and experience in the area was incredibly valuable. Helen never made us feel pressured or set any expectations on us, and was always honest and respectful in her suggestions and comments about the reality of selling a property. One thing I’d highly suggest to anyone reading this review is to please do your research on who you want to use. Another local realtor in the MR valued our property at $45k less than what Helen did.. Our property sold in 3 weeks, so Helen’s estimated value was right on target and not at all ‘over expectations’ or trying to just ‘money grab’. As a young family I still feel sick thinking about what money we may have lost if we didn’t have Helen’s understanding of the current market. To Breearne from Connect Real Estate, thank you for your time and effort, it has not gone unnoticed. Haynes Family.

Since the launch of Connect RealEstate, we have engaged Helen to sell several properties for us. Helen and her team always make the process easy and stress-free. We are provided with regular and detailed updates and supported through every step. We would highly recommend Helen to anyone looking to sell or purchase a property!

Have recently started renting with this agency and I have had no problems with them. Breearne is very kind and is fast with communication:)
Matthew Bugeja
Helen is very knowledgeable about the market and kept us well informed from the moment I first engaged with her right until the property sold. If you are considering selling your property, speak with Helen.
Steven Docherty
Helen provided honest and clear information about the local market that helped our family make better decisions when identifying the best price for our property. Connect Real Estate's dedication to marketing the property through regular and frequent open for inspections was impressive and the best for our property.
Suzanne Carroll
We have bought and sold with Helen several times and wouldn't use anyone else in the area. Helen is extremely fair and professional all the way through the process. She doesn't shy away from the difficult issues that sometimes arise with purchasing or selling. She is level headed and calming but extremely thorough. You always know she has your best interest in mind when negotiating, so both parties are happy with the outcome. Belinda in the office is an integral part of the business and is always helpful. Nothing it too much trouble for either of them. We would not deal with anyone else when buyer or selling in the Macedon Ranges.


Great experience selling with Helen. She was professional, honest and kept us updated throughout the whole process. She was able to assist us with everything that was required to sell our house. Would have no hesitation in recommending Helen to friends and family in the future.

I was recommended to use Helen from a friend. After meeting with other agents and then meeting Helen, I knew immediately that I was going to go with her. She is incredibly friendly, honest and upfront. She guided us every step of the way and got us a result that were are so incredibly grateful for. I have already recommended Helen to friends and wouldn't hesitate to use her or recommend her again. Thanks Helen!!!
by Amy
Helen is a long time local and it was obvious. We've been involved with real estate for many years and we've dealt all types of agents. Most of those others we would not recommend. However, Helen is a standout. She was one of the best agents we've ever dealt with... from all aspects of our dealings with her. We can't speak highly enough of Helen and wish her all the best in her future career.
