Genuine and Understanding

Dear Phil and Di, We are writing to express our gratitude and appreciation for your assistance in selling the family home. The Johnson family would like to thank you for your professionalism and excellent effort towards the sale of the home. It was an emotional time for the family and we appreciate your efforts. You made the whole process smooth with your high level of communication with the family at all times. Most importantly your genuine and understanding nature was recognised and appreciated by all the family when dealing with a deceased estate.

Thank you.


Honesty and Respect

Recently we made the very hard decision to sell our beloved Belmont property. Not knowing anything about the Real Estate game it was a "pull the name out of a hat" decision. Which turned out to be the best decision we have ever made! Despite being our happy family home, where we had raised 4 children our house needed a little TLC. From day one Philip was sensitive to the fact that this was a place that we were very attached to and treated us and our house with care and respect, always keeping us well informed about the process as well as the progress. From Philip's honest and realistic appraisal to the end result, we couldn't be happier and have no trouble in recommending Hiddleston Real Estate to anyone who values honesty and respect. Thank you Philip and team.

- The Curtis family

Professional Team

It was so great to deal with such a professional team at Hiddleston Real Estate. They went above and beyond my expectations. Philip was fantastic at keeping me informed at every stage of the sale of my unit. Cannot thank them enough for the way they handled everything so professionally.

Assistance with small details

Philip, I would like to thank you for your efforts to sell my property (7 Wicklow Place, Grovedale). It was ultimately a successful sale at approximately the price you initially estimated.

I was particularly grateful for your assistance with small details such as sending around prompt and reliable tradesmen to correct minor defects which might have deterred a buyer. As I am not a Geelong resident I was saved a lot of time (and mileage). Yours sincerely.

Professionalism and patience

Hi Phil, You and your staff need a great sincere thanks for your professionalism and patience when conducting your duties as the real estate agents. We were thoroughly pleased with the whole effort everyone at Hiddleston's put into the process. Please pass this message onto your staff. Will certainly pass on your name and agency to friends, family and associates with an excellent recommendation if they want to sell or buy a house. Cheers and thanks again!

Very pleasant to deal with

We would both like to say a very big thank you to Philip and his staff as they have all worked extremely hard for us in looking after our rental property for the last 12 months, as well as selling our house recently. Philip is a very professional and very pleasant person to deal with and he keeps you informed of everything which is happening regarding your property and he is happy to explain everything to you and to answer any questions that you may have. We are very grateful to Philip and would recommend Hiddleston Real Estate. Kind regards.

Efficient service

Kathy and I would like to say thankyou Philip for the professional, pleasant and efficient service over more than 16 years now. We bought the house we're still in through Hiddleston Barling, sold our old house through Hiddleston Barling, bought two units through Hiddleston Barling and have now sold the unit we had under Hiddleston Barling management for several years, also through Hiddleston Barling. All the team at Hiddleston Barling have been great, but we'd particularly like to thank you and Heather. You're our first choice for any transactions in future.

- Stephen Heselwood

Never rushed or pressured

We are really pleased that we engaged Phil for the sale of our property. We were thankful that we were never rushed or pressured with our decision making and always felt comfortable asking Phil as many questions as we needed throughout the campaign. Phil listened to and acted on our requests in his very professional manner and we believe that he treated prospective purchasers in the same respectful way. We genuinely appreciate the wonderful service provided by Phil and Heather.

- K & H Chisholm

Amazing outcome

Thank you Philip for the professional manner in which you sold our block of land. We are very appreciative of the extra things you did to assist us and the speed at which the block was sold was most unexpected. We are very pleased with the outcome and would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Hiddleston Real Estate.

- L. & G. McGuiness

Best of hands

During my time with Phillip and Heather at Hiddleston Barling Real Estate Pty Ltd, my property has been in the best of hands. The level of professionalism has been second to none and I would have no hesitation at all in recommending them to anyone looking at either buying, selling or renting their property. Their dedication and hard work is evident and the personal satisfaction in knowing that you are completely looked after 110% is reassuring to say the least. Thank you to you both for your years of support and l will be back!!

Friendly and professional

Thank you Philip, Stan and Heather, your friendly and professional approach has really been appreciated by myself and Andrew over the years. Having rented a house from you and then leased out our own property whilst interstate - it was reassuring to know that everything was effectively taken care of. Now having successfully sold our house with Hiddleston Barling we can thoroughly recommend you for all apsects of property management!

Most honest people in real estate

Philip Hiddleston is one of the most honest people in real estate (and I have dealt with quite a lot buying and selling units for over 10 years). He is hard working and is always letting me know what is happening with my properties both in sales and rentals. He is trustworthy and does a good job. Agents like Philip are hard to find.

- K. Henderson

Professional, upfront, honest and very hard working

A very big thank you to Philip and the team for the recent sale of my East Geelong unit. They have also managed this unit for me since 2006 after I purchased it from them as a rental property. At all times, Philip, Stan and Heather were professional, upfront, honest and very hard working. The communication was always top notch. I would highly recommend this real estate business for a sale or management of a rental property. You cannot get any better.

- K. Russell

Genuine efforts

I first met Philip and Stan in July 2001 when I offered to purchase a house they had for sale. During the process of negotiation, the service Philip and Stan provided can only be described as extremely professional. They both conducted themselves in such a fashion that I could plainly see their genuine efforts to represent both the vendor and myself. Since my original purchase with Hiddleston Barling, I have purchased an additional investment property they had listed and one other property with another agent. Both properties were managed for me by Philip and Stan and I would not hesitate continuing to engage their services in any capacity in real estate. Anyone would be hard pressed to find a more professional real estate service.
