We first approached Bailey’s in late 2020 about selling our home. They were one of three real estate agents we invited to visit and appraise our home. Bailey’s, in the form of Shelley (Grieve) and Ian (Robinson) were the only agents who arrived having done their homework regarding the property: its potential value in the market at the time and a sales strategy.  From the outset they oozed professionalism – in a very user friendly manner. Whilst at that time, we weren’t quite ready to sell – the ‘final duck had not got into line’ – we were certain that when the time to sell came about, then it would be Shelley and Ian who would do this for us.

Fast forward six months, and the last duck finally lined up. From this point Shelley and Ian proffered updated advise on sales strategy and the state of the market. The quality of the campaign was outstanding – from proffering advice about ‘presenting’ the house to the pictures and overall marketing. Throughout, both Shelley and Ian were in constant touch. After a short marketing campaign, we went to auction and achieved a result which left us very happy.

From start to finish, the combination of professionalism and the warm, friendly approach from Shelley, Ian and the rest of the Bailey’s team has been exceptional.

Would we use them again or recommend them – absolutely!

To whom it may concern

The recent successful sale of our property was initiated after we made contact with Shelley following our visit to an open home.

Shelley met with us and communicated the sale process very clearly, emphasising the value of selling at auction, a process that we had been sceptical about following experience with earlier sales.

The whole marketing campaign and time line to the auction date was clearly defined by Shelley.

The presentation of the property in the advertising campaign across all media options was excellent and clearly showed the experience that Shelley and her team have in the real estate field, our home could not have been presented better in the media.

Open homes were a great success and the feedback we got was very good, communication was good at all times through the sales campaign.

Buyer interest determined that there would be a lively auction and the outcome proved to be well above our expectations, this very much backed up what Shelley had communicated regards the auction process and her insistence that offers prior the auction should not be considered.

We could not have expected a better outcome from the successful sale and we greatly appreciate the efforts of Shelley and Ian as our agents and also the rest of the team at Baileys.

We would like to thank the team at Bayleys for their energy and diligence through-out the marketing and sale process of our property at 17B Alfred Street last month.

In particular, we felt that Shelley Grieve, as the main agent, was the consummate professional par excellence; her pitch to acquire the selling rights was later matched by her hard work and follow through. Communication and updates as to how the property was tracking prior to sale day were clear and indeed regular. Rarely do you find this in a real estate agent.

One matter we do think we would change next time would be to inform the interested parties of vendor price expectations in more certain terms. It appears vendor and buyer expectations were quite some distance apart on sales day. Fortunately though a deal was struck.

We got the impression pretty early on that Shelley genuinely was seeking a result for a client as if it were her own. For these we would engage Shelley again without hesitation to assist in the selling property.

Shelley and Maura put an enormous amount of passion and enthusiasm into selling our home. They were reliable, honest and motivated which really reflected on the excellent results - happy vendors and super excited buyers! Thanks heaps for exceeding our expectation & making what could have been a much more stressful task, an enjoyable chapter.

What an absolute super star Shelley is. With just the perfect mix of EQ and IQ to get the sale through at an optimal level. She kept us informed, gave great advice throughout the sales process, worked tirelessly to ensure everyone interested had the right information promptly and the outcome was well beyond our expectations. I have absolutely no hesitation of recommending Shelley to anyone.

Maryann Pratt – Oct 2020


Selling a house is stressful, even if everything goes well. Shelley and Karen gave us honest advice all the way through the process and made themselves available whenever we needed them. While the process wasn’t without challenges it became apparent that Shelley was working hard to get us the best price for our house resulting in a successful sale. Based on previous experiences we can honestly say that Shelley and Bayleys aren’t your usual real estate agents, and that showed in the results. We appreciate the work that Shelley and Karen put into the process and we are glad that we went with Shelley and Bayleys.

Dave and Megan - Nov 2020


We really recognise how very hard you worked for us keeping us fully informed at all times and, of course, we were really thrilled with the end result. We were very comfortable knowing that we could rely on you to do whatever was required to get us the best possible deal.

Roger & Valerie – December 2020


Shelley was extremely helpful and genuine right from the start. She was willing to answer any question that we have thrown her way, and able to lay aside our fears and worries. We were able to trust and rely on her experience. We cannot recommend her enough from a buyer's point of view, and we definitely would contact Shelley in the future to use her service.
