Ben Heaslip

Sales & Auctioneer

Ben has been an integral part of South Coast Realty as a Sales Consultant since 2017, fostering a profound connection with the Fleurieu Peninsula. Having called Victor Harbor home since 2003, he possesses an intimate understanding of the area's allure.

 His career in real estate is anchored by core values of honesty, reliability, and communication. Ben actively participates in community engagement, contributing to various charity and sponsorship events under the South Coast Realty banner.

 Evident in his commitment to professional growth, Ben completed his Cert IV & Diploma in Property Services in 2017, obtained his Auctioneer's license in 2021, and is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Business (Property) degree at the University of South Australia.

 As an accomplished Auctioneer, Ben challenges the perception of the South Coast as a non-Auction market. The only Agent to have successfully called three Auctions on the same day, leveraging his experience to counsel sellers on the benefits of this approach.


With a track record having consistently transacting 70+ properties per calendar year since the COVID boom, Ben's modern, fast-paced marketing approach is complemented by his remarkably short average days on market of just 25 days.

Beyond real estate, Ben's disciplined and competitive approach stems from his background in football, including playing for South Adelaide FC in the SANFL tallying 119 League games. Outside of work, he indulges in coastal living, finding solace in relaxing at the beach or enjoying a cup of coffee at a local cafe.

For all your real estate needs, Ben is your dependable point of contact. Reach out to him to discuss your property requirements with confidence.

" Rob & Ben provided fast efficient and courteous service "

Rob & Ben's market knowledge was extensive and comprehensive and I was also much impressed with their after sale assistance. I would recommend South Coast Realty to any prospective buyer for their thorough and methodical approach and their professional advice.

" Excellent service from Rob and Ben. "

Ben and Rob have just sold our house for us. It was harder that first expected but at no stage did they lose momentum and were very professional at all times with follow up calls and keeping us in touch. Was nice to deal with people that had the personal touch also. It was like working with friends. We wish to thank Ben and Rob for all of their hard work in finding the right buyer. We would not hesitate to refer them to anyone that needs to sell.

" Selling our house with Rob and Ben "

We found the whole team very professional. We liked how they arrived early for open inspections and gave us detailed feedback . We got weekly emails from Ben keeping us up to date on how things were going .We understood that we would have to reduce our price and Rob was very clear on where we stood in the market . We had hoped for more but felt they did their very best to sell it .We have recommended them to other prospective buyers. We found Ben very easy to deal with . He has a natural relaxed manner which is very calming .

" Five Star Review "

I was offered sound, clear advice about the sale of the house and the possible problems that could go with it. I was hoping for $500,000 or more but, as pointed out, it could have taken quite some time to get such an offer and the offer I took was cash - no encumbrances. The majority of the time I was dealing with Ben who was very helpful and supportive..... especially when I had to get rid of some furniture from the house before settlement!!! Many thanks to you both.

Michael and Brenda

Margaret and Trevor - Vendors

" Thank You "

Ben was excellent to deal with. No spin just honest review of the property and price. He knows the market and area extremely well. Would recommend Ben and South Coast realty whether I was buying or selling.


" Very Impressive "

Ben kept me informed regularly whilst the property was on the market with feedback and reports of how the marketing was going. I had the property listed with another agent for 12 months previously and was frustrated that i was never contacted and was left to me to chase them. Ben was a breathe of fresh air with his professional and diligent follow up emails, calls and contract documentation. This young man has a bright future in this industry and I wish him well.


" Great Agent "

Ben's a no nonsense agent, polite and approachable

" A pleasure to work with "

It was lovely having such a friendly agent to help me through the purchaser of my first house. Ben was flexible with his time, quick to answer any queries and had a professional yet relaxed and easy to get along with manner. I especially appreciated the very thoughtful gesture of offering me the opportunity to put the 'Sold' sticker on the sign myself. It was a significant moment for me. I highly recommend Ben Heaslip as a great agent to work with!

" Two of the best in the industry "

As an absentee buyer, I found nothing was too much trouble for this awesome twosome. Every question answered, every box ticked. I couldn't have asked for anything more than what was delivered or for the courtesy given me. THANK you so much, given how the rest of my move went, I appreciate even more you efforts on my behalf (and the gift rendered in a time of need, much appreciated) Vala

" The Heaslip Team "

We thank you both for a job well done. We had a great experience with selling our house. Ben was always at the other end of the phone when needed. Questions were answered or he would find out the answer. Although it took awhile to sell our home our confidence was with the team at South Coast Realty.

Rod and Cherilyn

" Great Work Achieved "

After some time on the market price achieved and settlement went through on time. Communication was very efficient and kept us in the loop at all times.

Warren and Jeanette

" Excellant agent, highly recommended "

Right from the beginning Ben and Rob [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 Ben and Rob 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 "

Ben is a very approachable, professional young man. He is very accomplishing beyond good years. A pleasure to do business with. Thanks Ben & Rob.

Greg and Annie

" Professional, Honest and Reliable "

Ben made the sad task of having to sell my father’s home quick and easy. Ben was professional, direct, honest, reliable, friendly and was prompt in providing us with information when required and got the job done with minimal fuss. I would highly recommend Ben and South Coast Reality to anyone wanting to sell their property. Ben made the whole process so easy for us and we sold after the first opening without any hassles and at the price we wanted.


" Very Helpful Agent "

Ben was very helpful the whole process. Great at communication, fantastic at coming to my work to make the process so much easier for me. Thanks Ben for all your hard work!

" Victor Harbor is lucky to have this agency "

I have dealt with South Coast Realty 3 times now, and have found Rob & Ben both extremely helpful. The entire South Coast team makes you feel that you have ‘come to the right place’. Victor Harbor is lucky to have this agency and I have no problem recommending them.

Thanks very much to Rob & Ben for a great outcome in selling my investment property. I would also like to pass on my sincere appreciation to all staff involved for their great work.

" 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.

Roger Smart & Andrea Gerson

We appreciated your easy-going nature and respectful dealings with our tenants. Your knowledge, advice and diligence with keeping us informed along the way is to be commended and we would highly recommend your services. Many thanks
