" Personable "
We have had a great experience using Southcoast reality. The agents are pleasant and efficient as are the staff. We have been pleased with the result .
" We wholeheartedly recommend Rob "
Rob was the realtor for the sellers of our home we just purchased. He was such a huge help for us as we were under a tight deadline to make a simultaneous settlement with the home we were selling in NSW. He worked diligently with the conveyancer, and answered any questions we needed to know about the house. Everything went according to plan and we thank Rob for making this stressful transaction go off perfectly! We highly recommend him.
" Friendly, informative and very helpful "
From initial contact to final negotiations both Rob and his son Ben were friendly and professional. We were put at ease immediately and felt comfortable asking questions, all of which were either answered on the spot or in a timely manner. We would certainly recommend their services.
" Good experience...very helpful Agent "
We were able to contact with Rob and arrange suitable inspect, plus a follow-up, even on unscheduled work day. Excellent communicators both Rob and Ben. Very happy with outcome
" Seller of a house in Encounter Bay, SA "
Rob was confident that we were selling at a good time, that there were buyers out there wanting to purchase properties in our area. We relied on that judgement in making our decision to sell. Everything went smoothly, our advertising looked great & it was all 'done & dusted' in a very short time. Many thanks also to Ben who did a great job for us.

" Great Result Once Again!! "
We have sold numerous property's now through South Coast Realty and their team. Communication has always been clear and transparent. There doesn't seem to be the 'bullshit' that we have encountered with other agents. Rob's market knowledge is obvious and we have no hesitation in recommending him and his team to anyone wanting a stress free sale! Well done.
" Great Agent "
Rob Heaslip and his team were very professional and have continued to be helpful since our purchase. Rob has gone out of his way to help us with advice and follow up contacts who could help with some of the maintenance issues required with house purchases eg names of recommended plumbers, roofing, pest control etc
" Excellant agent, I strongly recommend Rob "
Right from the beginning Rob and Ben [father and son team] told me exactly how the sale would go, with no false claims or having your hopes raised to expect a result that clearly would not happen. The sale went precisely the way they said it would. It sold in just on 4 months in a area not moving that well. Both Rob and Ben were courteous and very professional. Regular opens were planned and plenty of notice given to me prior to each open. A first class review was placed on the internet and I was always kept up to date with written reports and phone calls. Every phone call I made was immediately followed up as soon as either was free, if they were unable to take the call. Both Rob and Ben work well together, I highly recommend them. You know exactly where you stand with these two professional real estate agents working for you. One last point, their fees are very reasonable. Well done guys for a great job done.
" Great Agent "
We found Rob & Ben very accommodating with any enquiry we had on the property. They were happy to assist anytime and everything ran smoothly. We would recommend them for any sale needs
" Selling House Made Easy "
Overall it was an easy exercise to sell my house. As it was the first time I had sold a house Rob's knowledge both of the area and the paperwork needed was essential for me. He accepted that I wasn't prepared to make radical improvements given lack of finances. I would recommend South Coast Real Estate to others if the opportunity arose.
" We cant speak more highly of Rob & Ben Heaslip "
We cant speak more highly of Rob & Ben Heaslip & the team at South Coast Realty. Reliable, no fuss and always keeping the lines of communication open, while endeavouring to drive the best possible purchase price they can.
" I got the price I was looking for "
Rob, Many thanks for your efforts in Selling my property at 54 Seaview Ave. Right from our initial meeting at the property you kept me well appraised of progress and I was impressed with your tenacity at identifying and developing potential buyers. Moreover, I got the price I was looking for. I'd be happy to speak to anyone considering using South Coast Realty as their selling agent.
" You guys are the best agents we have dealt with "
Morning Rob & Ben, You've been very supportive and professional and could not be happier with your services, you guys are the best agents we have dealt with from start to finish.
" Victor Harbor is lucky to have this agency "

" The sale price was within $500 of our target "
Rob and Ben Heaslip organised the sale of our house in Mill Terrace, Middleton. From initial discussion to contract of sale took less than 4 weeks. The sale price was within $500 of our target discussed with Rob. The advice we received on price bracket, house presentation and placement in on-line advertising was highly professional and effective. The open inspections run by Ben were effective 30 min. weekend sessions advised by South Coast Realty to people interested in the area and price bracket and road-signed on the day only to minimise curiosity viewers. This provided mainly direct interest viewers. We are very grateful for their professional approach.

I would recommend them to any potential investor or renter.”.
“As first time landlords we were understandably nervous about having tenants in our home and working with a property manager. Luckily for us we were fortunate enough to choose South Coast Realty have been brilliant throughout our time as landlords, they have responded in a very timely fashion to any request or query. They have provided us with honest advice and acted with integrity throughout the entire time. On occasions when liaison has needed to occur with the tenants they have been clear communicators with both the tenants and us, leading to a high level of satisfaction from both sides. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the property management team at South Coast Realty to anyone considering renting their home”.
