What people say about 4front Real Estate

Hassle free, professional service with great outcome

I didn’t know who to get to sell my home as I don’t know many realestate agencies in Ulverstone. My sister recommended Tim as she found him happy and easy to talk to. I was extremely happy with Tim, he came quickly when I rang him, took photos and had it listed that night, I was eager to sell it quickly as I was wanting to purchase another home, and he exceeded my expectations to having it sold in only a few days. I would highly recommend Tim and his friendly staff 😊 5/5


Tim’s knowledge of the industry is exceptional. He is very professional at his job.

For someone who had limited knowledge of the real estate industry Tim explained things in a very easy way to understand and guided me through every step of the way. His professionalism and knowledge of the industry allowed him to get the best possible outcome for us. I would highly recommend Tim to anyone looking to sell there property. Verified by RateMyAgent

Professional to the letter!

We have engaged Tim at Forefront Real Estate on numerous sales projects and have found him easy to communicate with, very knowledgeable and generous with that knowledge. His advice has been invaluable and he gets the job done! Forefronts philosophy is a winner, we had the opportunity to show our own property, which of course reduced our commission costs, win win all round! We would whole heartedly recommend Tim and his team. Verified by RateMyAgent

I found Tim to be very professional and his knowledge of the market was highly accurate.

Our experience with 4Front realty and Tim in particular has been excellent . Tim achieved the price that he quoted for our home in a relatively short space of time. I loved the weekly reviews of what was happening regarding viewings and feedback and would thoroughly recommend Tim to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home. Verified by RateMyAgent

Well guided

Tim was very helpful right from the first conversation. He made good time to talk us through the process of selling and he was able to provide grounded advice at each point. Whenever I had questions he was happy to discuss them and seemed to be drawing on his own regular reading of the market. In the end he helped us secure a good sale. His offer of allowing us to show the house was also a valuable opportunity. I enjoyed meeting the interested buyers. Verified by RateMyAgent

They were prompt with everything from the first enquiry, unlike the other bigger agencies. Tim was swift to reply to us with any questions along the way and always gave us accurate and appropriate advice. Well done Tim, and thank you to all the crew at 4Front. Verified by RateMyAgent

Paul Allen

The decision to use Billy at 4front Real Estate was an easy one. There is no hard sell, more like dealing with a friend. I've been through this process before, but this was a breeze. His honesty and professionalism were appreciated. Nothing was too much, calls and emails were prompt. The unique selling option worked in our favor and we saved LOADS in commission. What's not to love about that! I highly recommend Billy and his team.

Kellie Streets

Being first home buyers, we didn't know the ins and outs of everything. Billy was always there to assist us whenever we needed it, he was so calm and patient with explaining next steps and providing rough timeframes. His knowledge on everything helped us astronomically. His communication with us was wonderful and he really made this whole thing a walk through the park for us. We couldn't have asked for a better experience buying our first home. Thankyou so much Billy for all your help. 😁 Verified by RateMyAgent

Our families recommended Billy Steele as he sold both their properties a few years ago and he did not disappoint. We were making a huge decision to sell our home of 25 years and Billy took all the stress out of our decision keeping us informed every step of the way. He was honest and upfront with us throughout the sale and as we were not living in our property at the time Billy and his team made the sale happen seamlessly always returning calls promptly. We would highly recommend Billy and the team at 4Front Real Estate. Paul & Linda Verified by RateMyAgent

We found Tim all of the above and more. He made the entire experience a pleasant one even when our sale became challenging. We thoroughly recommend him to any prospective buyer/seller. He gave us very good advice and extra attention as required; nothing was too much trouble. We will miss our interesting conversations! Thanks a million Tim :) Verified by RateMyAgent

Brad & Megan Thomas

Early November 2014 we began our foray into the world of land development, embarking on a 25 lot rural living subdivision. While in search of a Real Estate Agent to manage our sales we saw an advertisement in which B&H Real Estate were challenging land developers with this question: “If you are serious about selling, how much in commissions will you pay when your property sells?” We had a meeting with Tim and not 24 hours later we received an email containing our subdivision sales proposal. Yes, we were convinced! We chose to use B&H for three reasons. 1. they were a new business, and even though not in our immediate area, still interested in our property 2. the lower commission compared to other agents ($990). Tim explained that to sell land the agent really didn’t do that much and that as we knew the land the best, we were able to field enquiries ourselves. 3. they were genuinely interested in what we were doing. Tim and his team have always provided totally professional service. B&H and now 4Front have been true to their word; commissions have not changed and negotiations, contracts of sale and all paperwork have been handled at no extra cost to us. Tim has always been honest and accurate to the market in his assessment of property value, prompt in following up on all enquiries, and has allowed us to conduct inspections with potential buyers where economically beneficial to us. He was very positive when we became quite despondent, particularly when the banking enquiry saw many potential contracts fall through. He encouraged us to “hang in’ and suggested we advertise or promote certain blocks to create interest. We did, and we have now completed all sales in our development. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Tim and the 4Front Real Estate team for their professionalism, their attention to service and their advice and encouragement. We wish them all continued success. They are a great team to work with and we would recommend them to anyone look Verified by RateMyAgent

Simon Ackling

In this current boom market, real estate agents are more time-poor than ever. HOWEVER, Tim went out of his way to respond to our queries; to check in with us on a regular basis; to make sure that everything was on track; also, to provide exceptional after sales service (and a goody bag that we very much enjoyed, thanks Tim). His calm, professional manner had us all behave like reasonable people, instead of like animals in a real estate feeding frenzy. Tim had the skills, knowledge and confidence to not just get the job done, but to do it well (and somehow leave everyone feeling good about it). A true gem. Verified by RateMyAgent

For the last 6 years, we have had the enormous pleasure of working with B&H Real Estate, Cassandra has been the main contact on the administration of contracts in the sale of some 25 blocks of land and it gives us great pleasure to offer this testimonial. We chose to use B&H for three reasons. 1. they were a new business, and even though not in our immediate area, still interested in our property 2. the lower commission compared to other agents. Tim explained that to sell land the agent really didn’t do that much and that as we knew the land the best, we were able to field enquiries ourselves. 3. they were genuinely interested in what we were doing. Cassandra has always provided totally professional service. She is courteous, helpful and extremely prompt in attending to the administrative aspects of each contract. The contracts are always spot on and Cass seems genuinely pleased for us as each sale completes. She stays well informed on where we are up to, and when we have asked for documents a second time, she is only too happy to oblige, and adds a smiling emoji 😉. When we are unable to contact Tim, Cass always tries to assist, and we can depend on her to pass on our messages. Nothing seems too much trouble for her. Thank you, Cassandra for your service to date. We look forward to continuing our working relationship whilst we still have a few blocks left to sell. As B&H move into the new phase of their operation as 4front Real Estate, we would like to take this opportunity to wish them continued success. There were times when we needed advice and encouragement and the B&H team were quick to listen and offer both. They are a great team to work with and we would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell property. We believe they have a system that works because it worked for us.

Jane Blyth & Dan Williams

I have known Cassandra for five years, having worked with her in her administration and consultancy role in the Real Estate market in Burnie, Tasmania. I have always found Cass to be a professional and approachable person who responds quickly to requests, completing tasks for me expeditiously in the fast-paced Real Estate market. Cass' knowledge of the market and ability to communicate this honestly and clearly, demonstrates her integrity and ability in both negotiation and advise. I fully endorse her as a reliable and trusted go-to person in the Real Estate industry.

Very helpful during the stressful process of purchasing our first house. Cassandra was a godsend, keeping us sane when we hit a few bumpy patches!

Thank you to the Property Management team. You have made it so easy for us to feel confident renting out our new house. Your follow up and communication with us is always excellent. Thank you for organizing for work to be done for us while we are interstate. Your attention to detail is outstanding and we know our property will be in good hands. Your friendly, helpful and highly professional style are like a breath of fresh air to us.

Karmina and Peter

Dear team. I want to thank you for selling the house and all the time and effort that you have committed to achieve the sale. Our house sat on the market for a number of years and we were very pleased with how quickly it sold once we engaged your services. Thanks to you all, Michael & I will happily recommend your company to others, all the best.

Once again Tim has sold our property in a short time frame. Very professional, approachable and recognised the sensitive nature of this sale. I will contact Tim in the future for any real estate need I may have. - Allison What can i say. Tim Bonnefin has sold 2 of our properties in 5 years. Both times they sold within a couple of months of listing and for a price that we were more than happy to settle on. his company are the best on the Central Coast, its not about their fees even though they are considerably lower than other agents. It is about the professional service offered from day one , the hours they put in building a realistic customer base. And for me personally it was Tim being straight up and honest as to where our properties sat in today's markets. To have a Director of a company available 24/7 to guarantee the sale of one of the biggest assets you will ever sell is awesome service. After Selling our first property within weeks . I became a friend for life. - Stuart

Billy was extremely professional in all his dealings with us. The most impressive thing about Billy was that he was honest about our property and was able to provide evidence of what he had been doing to sell our property and advice on how to proceed. We always found him a pleasure to talk to and helped us to both sell our house and purchase our next home.

Adrian & Kerian Matthews 

I have found Trish to be more than exceptional in her duties as Property Manager, she has always been available whenever I have had an issue or question regarding my unit or tenancy. I feel Trish has gone above and beyond her duties many times and I have appreciated all that she has done and accomplished whilst servicing as my Property Manager. I highly and strongly recommend her to all and anyone.

Eric Kerr

Billy, thank you for your assistance in purchasing my New Home.. You made the whole process smooth & relatively painless. I Would be more than happy to utilise your service again should I need it, or recommend you to others.

Beth Kelly

Trish is easily the best property manager I have ever encountered in my 30 years of owning property and working as a real estate agent. Trish managed my rental properties in Ulverstone for a decade and consistently went ‘above and beyond’ to make sure the units were well tenanted, to solve any problems that cropped up and to keep me informed of what was going on. Any time I went to look at the units they looked well maintained, clean and neat. I have the utmost respect for and I truly like the decent and exceptional human being and property manager that Trish is. 

Catherine Rae

Mr Billy Steele in my opinion, through the whole process of the sale of our house has been very diligent, friendly and very active on our behalf and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone requiring the services of an agent.
