7 Reasons why Tim Bartlett won Wollongong Real Estate Agent of the Year … from the mouth of his clients.  


With a 4.9/5 rating on Rate My Agent, Tim was recently crowned Rate My Agent’s Wollongong Real Estate Agent of the Year. 

We decided to rustle through the reviews to see what all the fuss is about and we came up with a list of 7 reasons to sell with Tim Bartlett. 


  1. Great first impressions 

First impressions matter, especially when it comes to selling your biggest asset. 

“From the first conversation with Tim he was friendly, informative and professional. I like his ethics and business style,” says Angela whose house in Figtree attracted a great price. 


  1. A smooth, low stress sales process 

It’s high praise when a buyer comments on the ease of the sales process. 

“Purchasing our new home went very smoothly. [Tim was] easy to deal with… straight up and communication remains open throughout the whole process. The follow up assistance at his office with Tanya also took the stress out of it all,” Katie writes. 

Ian and Vicki sold their Figtree home through Tim and were equally impressed with the smooth process. “We can’t speak highly enough of Tim and his team at Bartlett & Co. Tim’s expertise and knowledge were exceptional and he made the selling of our property trouble free in every aspect of the sale,” they wrote. 


  1. Experience, experience, experience! 

Right. Experience was a feature of nearly every review. As one of Wollongong’s hardest working agents over three decades, it’s not hard to see why. 

Julie says that engaging Bartlett and Co. Property, “…was the right decision from the start. Tim was there with us all the way. From pre-listing, throughout the sale process, to placing the ‘SOLD’ sticker on our billboard, Tim was professional and personable and his years of experience were evident from the get-go.” 


  1. Getting the right price 

Rochelle and Graeme were also impressed with Tim’s negotiation skills. 

“Tim and his team were fantastic! Tim constantly kept us up to date with offers from interested parties and was always available to answer any questions. He is down to earth, easy to communicate with and enthusiastic. Tim is very knowledgeable when it comes to the local market and we were more than happy with the price he managed to secure for our property.” 



  1. The agent to the downsizers 

Most downsizers, by definition, have not been near a real estate agent for decades. After all, they’re too busy bringing up the family. But when it comes time, Alex and Sue spoke about their decision to go with Tim. 

“It was time to downsize from our house of 36 years and move into a property which better suited our retirement lifestyle. Being total novices in the real estate arena we accepted Tim’s offer to guide us through the sale process,” they write. 

They admit they were novices and needed guidance – as well as a touch of honesty about their expectations. 

“Tim provided extensive experience in the real estate business and gave honest and candid advice on any expectations we may have had. These expectations ranged from the sale price to the way he saw the sale process going and to the final conclusion of the sale,” said Alex and Sue. 

“We found Tim to be very approachable and always available to discuss any issues or concerns which we, as novices to this business, had. Tim always kept us updated with the progress of the sale, often just touching base to see how we were travelling. The delivery of the sale of our property followed the sales process as originally described by Tim which confirmed our correct decision to use Bartlett & Co Property.” 

Thanks Alex and Sue! Enjoy your retirement. 


  1. Professionalism 

Another buyer comment on Tim’s professionalism means you can be certain that Tim is going to build the relationships necessary to get your price over the line. No question or issue was too much trouble. 

“It was a pleasure having Tim as the agent for our property purchase. From the very beginning the purchase was handled in a professional manner. Tim was very approachable and no question or issue was too much trouble. I would highly recommend Tim and his team for anyone selling their property,” says Gabrielle about the purchase of her new Balgownie townhouse. 


  1. Communication 

Tim sold Ken and Lynell’s beautiful top floor unit in Smith St. and they appreciated the free flow of information. 

“Tim was not pushy to the vendors and kept us informed at every step until the sale was confirmed. He is easy to work with, honest and trustworthy,” they wrote. 

Melanie and Gareth also were impressed with his communication style when they purchased their home from Tim in Farmborough Heights. 

“He was always quick to get back to us and clearly communicated anything we needed to know,” said Melanie and Gareth. 

“Tim was a breath of fresh air, he explained the process so well, he was answered all our concerns and questions. He and his team were in constant communications throughout the process so we knew what and where we were up to,” said Gail and Garry who sold their Cordeaux Heights home with Tim.
