What people say about Quirk Real Estate
I have recently purchased a house thru Ben Robinson & had a first class experience with the sale. I have bought & sold many properties over the years & rate this as the best I have encountered. Ben’s service was extremely professional, he is courteous, and his knowledge of the area is excellent. The timeline on him responding is immediate. I can highly recommend him as an agent.
Thanks for the thoughtful, friendly manner when helping to putchase the property. Advice given when asked, was honest and informed. The consistently courteous manner displayed by all the team at Quirks was appreciated. Geoff especially was always readily available to respond to call and went out of his way to rectify a problem that occurred just prior to settlement. As a result, I chose Quirks to handle the leasing of the property and they have given some useful advise for a first time investor in a fairly uncertain time this year. The tenants chosen and the process of advertising the property within a month of purchasing went smoothly. Advice was given on important matters such as landlord insurance, tax depreciation and finding a better deal for body corporate and building insurances. Hopefully I'll continue to develop some expertise in the area of leasing and certainly feel as though the property is perfect for my needs at the moment. I can positively say that i have no regrets in my recent purchase. its great to support, and in return receive support from a local real estate company Quirks!
Quirk Real Estate was recommended to me as a friendly and efficient family owned company with whom it was good to do business. Over the past six years i have purchased a residential unit through them. had them manage it for me and later when circumstances changed they sold the unit and my home for me. Over this time and in a number of different rolls they gave me great help and were always available when the need arose. We were particularly appreciative of their good advice and clam and friendly help at times when we were under pressure. It has indeed been a pleasure to do business with them and i have no hesitation in recommending them.
It was a pleasure to deal with Quirk Real Estate. We attended an open for inspection last March & Nicole Morris was the agent that presented the house to us, from this day on we only dealt with her, she is awesome! Another mention to Ben Robinson, on the same day we visited a house where Ben was the agent, the advice he gave us was priceless. We were moving from Dandenong to Warragul and we knew nothing about the area. No doubt we recommend Quirk Real Estate to family and friends.
We have had a number of dealings with Quirk Real Estate over the last few years and have been very impressed with the standard of service we received on each occasion. Geoff Quirk treated us in a very friendly and professional manner, nothing was too much trouble. We are now dealing with the rental department which is continuing with the same excellent service. We would have no hesitation in recommending Quirk Real Estate to anyone looking at real estate in this area, both sales and rental.

We Thoroughly recommend Quirk Real Estate for the buying and Selling if property! We were very impressed with Geoff Quirk when buying a property in Warragul - So easy going and informative with our many questions. He was unbelievably helpful when actually climbing up into the ceiling to inspect our heating while dressed in his very smart white shirt and grey pants. Nothing was a bother to him & over the years Geoff gave us names of reliable tradesmen for servicing the equipment in our home. Now having downsized to a retirement village Geoff put the right price on our home which gave us a quick sale and ease of mind to move forward - Thank you Geoff. The staff support is excellent both on the phone or in the office with happy smiling faces & pleasant disposition. We were never forgotten in receiving newsletters regularly - Calendars - even shopping bags. We have enjoyed our experience with Quirk Real Estate & wish them all the best for the future.
I recently purchased a property in Drouin through Quirk Real Estate in Warragul. At the open for inspection I met Nicole who answered my phone calls and dealt with my solicitor very helpfully when signing the contract. Nicole also arranged the final inspection which was attended by Vin who opened everything up to show us through. When settlement was completed Vin offered to bring the keys to the house for us which I appreciated very much, also the lovely welcome gift he left for us. It was a pleasure to do business with your company and I would certainly recommend you to anyone I knew who was intending to buy or sell a property in your area.
In 1993 my wife & I walked into the Estate Office, interested in a house advertised in the window. The manager was friendly and informative. We were able to purchase the property with a convenient moving in date amicably arranged with the seller thanks to the Firm's efforts. Moving on to 2020 we came to a decision to sell. Having met the Quirk's manager a number of times over the years and found him to be a man of his word , we decided to place the sale in Quirk's hands. We were not disappointed finding the staff to be friendly, helpful and efficient. The price range quoted was generous, yet the property sold within two days of going on the market, at the top of the range. We could not be happier and would recommend them wholeheartedly .

We liked dealing with a professional family business, whom we've known for a long time. We appreciated the home visits whenever we needed to know something. We would and do recommend Quirk Real Estate to others and would gladly use your service again. Thank you. P & M Hammond.
We met Geoff Quirk at our initial inspection of the property at Greendale Court, Warragul. Geoff was friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. On subsequent inspections our positive thoughts about Geoff’s professionalism were only reinforced. On deciding to purchase the property Geoff went out of his way to accommodate our needs pending the sale of our existing home in Pakenham. Geoff continued to assistance right through to settlement professional attributes shone through. We can highly recommend Geoff Quirk and his friendly staff at Quirk Real Estate.
M & G Anderson
Excellent support was given during the whole purchase procedure. All the staff have been most approachable and friendly. I would certainly recommend Quirk Real Estate to others and would seek their assistance in future business.
Quirk Real Estate provided honest and transparent advice and professional services during the sale of our property. We did not have to second guess our decisions because with Quirk’s experience and local knowledge they demonstrated a realistic and achievable sales expectation. The process from initial decision to sell until settlement was seamless, well managed and communicative. Staff did more than was necessary and we appreciated their personal and thoughtful insights. Quirk Real Estate added value to the process by providing marketing services that were well priced and inclusive (eg drone photography and floor plans) such that we felt our house had the best opportunity and exposure to sell. It was easy to do business with Quirk Real Estate because all staff were polite and open. We were always kept well informed and appreciated attentive and considerate communication. If we need to we will use Quirk Real Estate again, buying, selling or renting. The agency is always the first (and only) that we recommend.

I purchased a property in Drouin through Quirk Real Estate, my purchase was made long distance as i lived 3.5 hours away from Drouin. Vin's willingness to open the property out of hours was a great assistance to me. All of my contacts with Vin and eventual settlement of the property were handled with ease and professionalism by Vin. I would definitely use and recommend Quirk Real Estate again.
I wanted to express our heartfelt thank you for looking after us with your rental property. We felt you were very prompt anytime we had any issues . Also many thanks to Rita for giving us our first home in Warragul when we moved here from the City and a subsequent one without we having to run around. We think anyone be a Tenant or Owner would be fortunate to have Quirk as their property managers. We know who to come to, to get a property managed in the future!
Vidya Anuraj & Ishana
We thoroughly enjoyed our purchasing experience with Quirk Real Estate. From our initial enquiry through to settlement it was customer service that was a highlight. Sales agent Nicole had a through knowledge of the property, was well prepared and we also appreciated the consideration she afforded the vendor who had lived at the property for an extended time. All enquiries during the process were attended to promptly. Also noted was the acknowledgement by Vin and Geoff when needed to visit the office. A small office who are not "too big" to service and appreciate their customers. We would highly recommend to anyone looking to source a local agent.
I & V Glen
Thank you all at Quirk Real Estate, Thank you Nicole Morris for looking after all the Transactions.
R & K Ware
The process of buying a house through Quirk Real Estate and Nicole was very easy. Great and easy communication over the phone, Quick to organise an inspection for us, putting in the offer & any follow ups we asked. We were very happy! We would definitely recommend Nicole and Quirk Real Estate to others - Thank you!
Jodie & Nathan
We are pleased to say our experience in dealing with QRE has been most satisfactory and we have no hesitation in recommending the firm to prospective buyers and sellers. We would particularly like to thank Nicole Morris for her friendly, efficient , professional service in facilitating our purchase of a house in Warragul. From the beginning of our search for a suitable house, Nicole was quick to organise inspections of several properties, some of which for various reasons, turned out to be not quite right for our purposes. Nicole proved to be always patient and persistent to do more research taking into account our requirements. It didn’t take long to find the right house for us. We were impressed by Nicole’s ability to listen to our requirements and to act on them accordingly. It was a pleasure dealing with Nicole and QRE generally. It was also a pleasant surprise to be given a framed picture of the house we bought along with some quality sweets. We would certainly use the services of QRE in any future dealings in real estate.

We have once again moved house and received the same standard of service extended by Quirk Real Estate and their staff. We have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking at real estate (buying, rental investment or selling) in this area.
H & P Hutchison
Having recently purchased a property through Geoff Quirk at Quirk Real Estate we can honestly say that we found Geoff to be a most professional and personable agent to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble for Geoff and he went that extra mile to ensure everything went smoothly.
Grant & Allison Harris
It was a pleasure to deal with Geoff regarding the recent purchase of our property in Warragul. His professional and easy going approach made what is often a difficult process much more straightforward than it may otherwise have been. Geoff’s thorough local knowledge is an asset to both his business and his clientele. Should the opportunity arise, we would be more than happy to use Geoff’s services again.
As clients of Quirk Real Estate we have always found Geoff and all the agents to be very proactive, thorough, and competent. Over the years we have bought and sold a number of properties and always use an agent who we feel possesses these qualities, one who we believe is acting in our best interests. We have found Geoff very easy to deal with, he listens to our requests and we would not hesitate to use him again when the need arises in the future.
Darren & Sharyn Purcell
We have had a number of dealings with Quirk Real Estate over the past two years. We have been very impressed with the standard of service we received on each occasion. Geoff Quirk treated us in a very friendly and professional manner. Being the first time we had dealt with property in the area he was also able to recommend other local services to enable us to complete our transactions. We are now dealing with the rental department which is continuing with the same excellent service. We would have no hesitation in recommending Quirk Real Estate to anyone looking at real estate in this area, both sales and rentals.
Harvey & Pamela Hutchison
I have worked with Geoff Quirk now on a number of occasions when purchasing, selling and managing property and it has always been a very positive experience due not just to Geoff’s expertise and experience but also his professional and personable approach. Geoff’s depth of knowledge and understanding of the local market has proven extremely beneficial with regard to purchase and sale of property. This coupled with Geoff’s sense of humour and down to earth, friendly nature makes what are significant financial transactions less stressful than would otherwise be the case. Geoff’s ability to understand our needs and be upfront with regards to our options and how he can assist has ensured we get the most from the time we have available to deal with these matters. We have found his transparent approach provides us with the peace of mind we are after. If we were to identify a point of difference with Geoff it is in the fact that he has at no stage illustrated a sense of urgency when the time comes for us to make a decision, he outlines where things are at with respect to all parties as he sees it and makes a recommendation based on his knowledge and expertise, he then leaves the ball in our court. This approach has meant we do not make hasty decisions that we later may regret which is a respectful approach we greatly appreciate. My dealings to date with Geoff, along with Vin, Daniel and all the team at QRE have been nothing but positive and I would highly recommend them and their services to anyone requiring the services of a real estate agent who acts with professionalism, courtesy and integrity.
This note is a very belated thank you for all your assistance in the purchase of our new home in Warragul. Vin Quirk Real Estate is a business that offers complete honesty, integrity and an attitude where nothing is too much trouble. Vin himself brings a wealth of knowledge, professionalism, honesty and calmness to the selling/purchase process. Please accept our sincere thanks for your genuine care and attention to details in the purchase of our home. We would certainly recommend you to family and friends, whether they be selling or buying in the future. They can be assured of your courteous and helpful attention and overall excellent service. We will in touch should we decide to move again!
Diane Campbell & Beat Rupp
Selling and moving house is said to be one of the most difficult times in your life, and given our situation - buying a house with quick settlement, putting our home on the market and selling it, all before Christmas - we can honestly say that it has been a positive experience. This can be attributed to the professionalism and personalised service we received from Vin, Geoff and the entire team at QRE. We especially appreciated that our time was valued no matter how long our appointments were, also the professional advice and experience we received was invaluable to us making decisions on our properties. Prompt response times, courteous and friendly staff and availability no matter what day of the week, all made an impression on us. We sincerely thank you and you team for your efforts.
Mark & Leanne Dunsmuir
We have had very few dealings with the world of real estate, but we did expect to be greeted with something of a “come in sucker” attitude and what we encountered could not have been in stronger contrast. Vin is an open, witty, astute and helpful member of his profession and it is difficult for me to imagine any way that he could have been more accommodating and direct with his advice and his general dealings – in both roles, representing the vendor in the purchase we made through him and in representing us in the (proposed) sale of our own property. He is a treat to discuss business with, a pleasure to converse with on everyday matters, offers sage counsel and is always ready with a whimsical comment and wry rejoinder. His directness and overt honesty make him an easy and engaging character to deal with and most importantly, a man in whom you can put your faith. But, in particular, it is his self-effacing, yet charming diffidence, that makes him immediately appealing to his clients and instantly wins their trust. In our case, on several occasions he made representations both on behalf of the other party and on our behalf as well, but at no stage did he compromise his integrity, yet remained totally candid with both factions. In addition, he went to considerable lengths to secure arrangements to our advantage (of a temporary nature) but sought no financial recompense for them personally. This, we found, was both generous and impressive, and we were grateful for his efforts. He seems to understand that little acts of human decency are rewards in themselves, and, in the long run benefit the world – and he might also be in that lottery. But that is not the motive for his actions, it might simply eventually be the inadvertent reward. And so, I could not recommend Vin more highly and would actively seek him out in any future dealings I might have, and would not hesitate to urge anyone I know to do the same. I would, however, have to warn any potential client that, if they were expecting to meet a slick, palaver-spouting sycophant, they will probably be disappointed.
Paul & Karin Ryan
I would just like to put on record how pleased we were with the service that you gave us on our recent house purchase. It was very reassuring for us to deal with a professional real estate agent when we were living interstate and looking to purchase a property in Warragul. We were impressed by the level of service that you provided us in a very timely manner, with no request being too difficult. It made the process of purchasing our new home seamless thanks to your diligence and co-operation and we would have no hesitation in utilising your services again, we are more than happy to recommend your services to any potential clients. Thanks again Daniel.
P. & T. Golding
Thanks for all your help in our move to Warragul. We have found the people at Quirk Real Estate to be professional & friendly. We have enjoyed our time here so far and would recommend you and the team at Quirk’s to both potential buyers and sellers.
Jon & Pamela Rodman
In August 2010, I made a decision to sell my residential property in Loch Sport and relocate to Drouin / Warragul area. I contacted a number of Real Estate Agents in this area in order to ascertain if a property filling my requirements and financial situation was available. In all, I consulted eight Agents and inspected approximately 25 properties of which Quirk Real Estate offered three. Immediately I met Vin Quirk, his relaxed, no pressure manner impressed me. This attitude continued throughout all inspections, when it was apparent that unlike some other Agents, Vin made no effort to falsely embellish a property's strengths or hide its problems. Upon deciding on a property to purchase, Vin’s assistance was invaluable in negotiation with the Vendor and on a number of occasions consulting directly with the Agent selling my existing property and the company attending to my conveyancing matters, thereby saving me time and reducing my workload and stress. I would therefore have no hesitation in recommending Quirk Real Estate and would certainly consult Vin should I require services of an Estate Agent in the future.
Our two rental properties have been managed by Quirk Real Estate for around three years now. We have been very impressed by the courteous and professional manner of the staff and the thorough processes in place for the ongoing management of our properties. This includes regular condition reports with photos, prompt action in resolving any maintenance issues and also providing us with an informative newsletter. So to any landlord looking for a Property Manager providing a comprehensive and professional service wo would take delight in recommending Quirk Real Estate to them.
Jack & Sue Laidlaw
Quirk Real Estate have been managing my properties for over four years. They take care of everything from finding good tenants, arranging maintenance and keeping me up to date through regular inspection reports. As a landlord I can relax knowing they will look after everything right down to the regular banking of my rental income.
This letter has been written to give my glowing appraisal to Vin Quirk and the whole team at Quirk Real Estate in Warragul. As a landlord of up to 13 properties over the last 25 years I have been a loyal supporter of Vin and the team for the last 13 years. I remember Vin from the first day when he came to me and said, "I have purchased the previous real estate office and would like to keep your business". From day one the professionalism was evident and has continued throughout his organization from just two members now to eight. To buy and sell a house is one transaction but to rent a property is a seven day a week job which they have performed for me in a magnificent way for over 4745 days. All of Vin's employed Property Managers have been great, right up to one of his best in Rita. They fully understand my expectations and achieve them with a minimum of fuss. Most importantly they treat my money and properties as if they were their own. It has been a pleasure to write this letter and please feel free to call or phone me on this matter.
Having recently purchased a residential property in Warragul from your business we cannot believe the level of professional service and courtesy that you and your staff afforded us. From the initial contact to the signing of the contract and beyond was over, above and beyond expectation. Nothing was too much trouble. Just asking for advice on contractors in the area as we were new to this district, within the blink of an eye you were on the phone with phone numbers and recommendations as who to contact for various trades and business people. If in the future we need the assistance of a real estate agent or any of our friends require real estate services we can assure them that the name of Quirk Real Estate is simply THE BEST.
