With 30 years of real estate experience and an impressive reputation to her name, Belle Property Castle Hill’s Co-principal, Kellie Burns is one of the Hills District’s most successful real estate agents. With a high level of real estate expertise, superior marketing abilities and a well-respected standing in the community, Kellie is an asset to Belle Property Castle Hill and the Belle Property brand.
Along with her husband, Co-principal, Andrew McDermott, Kellie opened Belle Property Castle Hill in 2011. Before leading the award-winning team, Kellie recognised the need for a real estate brand such as Belle Property to adequately cater to the needs of the broader Hills District real estate market and do justice to the marketing of local properties. In just five years, Kellie has nurtured her staff to become one of the Hills District’s most specialised real estate teams with expertise in residential sales, property management and project marketing.
Aside from the superior award-winning team she has helped groom, Kellie herself has garnered an exceptional reputation in the Hill’s District real estate arena for her years of experience in real estate sales and her expert people management and communication skills. Kellie has been recognised consistently throughout her career and has an impressive 92 percent referral success rate.
With the support of the highly regarded Belle Property brand behind her, Kellie is proud to be able to offer her clients the very best property marketing strategies available and the broadest exposure for her listings through the Belle Property database and extensive network of offices. Kellie believes that every home, irrespective of its value, deserves the Belle Property brand.
Kellie looked after the sale of our investment property. During the time we rented it out, Belle also managed it wonderfully as a rental for us. From the moment we advised her of our intention to put the property on the market, she took care of everything. It was seamless, professional, timely, and we achieved the price we had hoped for. Thank you to Kellie and her team for making this process so stress free for us. I would highly recommend Kellie & the team at Belle Property Castle Hill as a managing agent and a selling agent.
I initially feared that we might list with Kellie but then be ‘passed off’ to another agent as had happened to us elsewhere. But we quickly realised that Kellie and Peter are a powerhouse sales team. By leveraging their skills and time they could cover the many real buyers who responded to their massively successful marketing campaign.
Peter Tadrosse was outstanding in his communication skills in both keeping us well informed and gaining and building the buyers’ trust and commitment to proceed. His knowledge of the local market and our specific property before it was vacated was invaluable. He chased down all of the details to get the deal over the line.
Kellie and Peter were out in the market getting the deal, but they can only do that effectively if they can rely on a good back-office team. Joanne Binns and Rebecca Lipovac excelled at buyer contact and administrative details and are a key part of the Belle Property Castle Hill team.
Like most sales campaigns, we had our twists and turns. The test of a good salesperson is how well they handle issues and keep the campaign progressing. Kellie and Peter kept us informed and guided us to a successful result with a minimum of stress.
We wholeheartedly recommend Kellie Burns and Peter Tadrosse at Belle Property Castle Hill.
What a pleasure - The experience I had in selling my house with Kellie exceeded my expectations in all areas, so it is such a pleasure to write a review. There is so much I want to say...She made our experience stress free by really listening and fitting into our lives rather than pressuring us...she was always accommodating and understanding and it really made a difference. She was a pleasure to deal with, always friendly with a genuinely caring nature, honest and always working for our best interests. Never once did she try and talk us into selling if it wasn't in our best interest, she would just keep negotiating. She always kept us updated, she always followed up potential leads, and always followed up on anything we raised in a timely manner. Kellie was very creative and our sale may have fallen through if we did not have such a great agent working on our behalf. I highly recommend Kellie and her team.
Above all expectations! From the first meeting with Kellie it was clear that she was going to be our agent of choice. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area and was very clear and helpful about our options for sale. Kellie knew exactly how she wanted to market our property and who would be the target buyers - seeing something different and special than other agents. As a result, we achieved a sale price well above expectations which was already well above what other agents had suggested it could be worth. Would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Kellie and Belle Property Castle Hill
Kellie and her team were awesome, selling our place in 3 weeks in a downward turning market, negotiating with our existing tenant to show potential buyers through and keeping us in the loop all the way through. Cannot recommend Kellie and her team at Belle Property Castle Hill enough.
Kellie engenders confidence in the vendor. She has extensive experience, is reliable and a pleasure to deal with
My husband and I would like to thank you Kellie Burns, Andrew McDermott and the whole team at Belle Property Castle Hill.
Thank you for your professionalism in the marketing and sale of our property and for the manner in which you qualify your buyers. This enabled a very quick sale for us after only one open home. Well done!
You did yourselves and Belle Property proud yet again.
We would also like to thank your office manager Joanne Binns for her efficiency and the services you recommended to us.
Thank you once again for an excellent service!
When we decided to sell our home back in 2009, we were introduced to Kellie McKenzie & Andrew McDermott. Straight away, we recognised what a hard-working, professional and dedicated team they were.
Once we decided to sell our new home in late 2012, we engaged the services of a more local agent, as it was not situated in The Hills. After 4 months on the market with an idle agent, we had only received a few unrealistic offers and were completely disheartened by the whole sales process.
After discussing our concerns with Kellie & Andrew, we engaged the services of Belle Property Castle Hill. Once again, the level of service and commitment provided by Kellie & Andrew was unsurpassed. After a short while on the market, our property was sold for full asking price and we were thrilled!
The outstanding professionalism and quality of service provided by Kellie, Andrew and the whole team at Belle Property Castle Hill is outstanding! Belle Property should be honoured to have Belle Property Castle Hill representing its brand.
We went to Belle Property to have Kellie sell our home and we achieved just that! We believe that Kellie did everything possible to achieve the best outcome for us and would recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home.
We were extremely happy with the sales program and the way our property was marketed. Kellie’s exceptional communication skills always kept us informed and confident. She was always available and approachable and made us feel as though she was not selling any other house but ours.
Our buyers reported a very similar experience in that they felt Kellie had integrity and was open and honest through the whole process – very hard to find today!
We would use Belle Property Castle Hill again in a heartbeat. Kellie and Andrew are a formidable team and between them, work on your house sale continuously and seamlessly.
Thank you Kellie and Andrew, you greatly deserve the success you have earned because of the great level of effort and care you put into your business and each individual customer.
I recently sold our family home with Belle Property at Castle Hill and found the entire experience to be comfortable and stress free. Kellie and Andrew are a great team and have renewed my faith in the real estate industry. They are professional, realistic, and it only took them 3 weeks to find the right buyer.
I have no hesitation in recommending Belle Property at Castle Hill to anyone wanting to sell their property.
I would like to thank you all again and wish your team at Belle Property Castle Hill all the very best for the future.
The sale of a family home is often a very emotional and difficult time, regardless of the circumstances and our sale was no different.
However, your professionalism, and that of the whole team at Belle Castle Hill, ensured it was a seamless and hassle free experience. From the day we signed the agreement, to the day the photos were taken, ads, placed, open homes scheduled and through to the day of the Auction, we never once felt that you were not working for us and to achieve the best you could.
Never to leave us wondering where it was up to or what buyers were thinking, you kept us informed of every little step and piece of information you found and ensured we were always the number one priority.
On the day of the Auction, you both showed us why you are #1 in the Hills, running back and forth from buyers to us and surpassing every expectation we had. It only takes a short drive around the area to see all the green and white "SOLD" stickers to see the result of your tireless efforts for your vendors.
We cannot thank you and the team enough.
Having made the decision to sell the family home and down size, I contacted Kellie McKenzie at Belle Property Castle Hill.
From our initial meeting it was clear to me I wanted Kellie and the team at Belle property Castle Hill to handle the sale. Kellie’s total professionalism, her eye for detail, as well as her attention to my particular need were impressive to say the least.
I wanted to know if I should make any changes or spend some extra money on the house in preparation for the open house Kellie’s advice was invaluable
I had no hesitation in signing up with Belle Property to sell my home.
An amazing marketing approach along with nothing but total enthusiasm from the entire team at Belle Property saw us ready for our first open home. Both Kellie & Andrew were extremely proactive and kept me informed and updated at all times of how each open house went, how many potential buyers came through etc. Each week we had a meeting to discuss the next stage. They took all the stress and worry on board.
Within four weeks the house was posted with its famous green “SOLD” sticker and I was one elated vendor.
During this time I began the search for my new home, Kellie mention they had a couple of townhouses she thought I might like. Once again this process was handled with greatest professionalism. It was a very smooth and straight forward sale and I am very much looking forward to settlement and moving to my new home.
I would not hesitate in recommending Kellie McKenzie and the team at Belle Property Castle Hill to handle your Real Estate requirements whatever they may be.
I would also like to take this opportunity to say the biggest of Thanks and wish The entire Team at Belle Property every success for the future.
Just a quick note to thank you for the hard work you put in when marketing our property which led to a successful sale. With the property next door for sale with another agent at the same time we were very nervous about the impact this would have but you handled this with professionalism and with our best interests at heart at all times.
Ever since meeting you a few years ago you have stayed in regular contact with us and keep us up to date with what was happening in the market which made the decision to buy and sell an informed one for us. You helped us get through what is normally a stressful time for sellers by providing a calming influence over my wife and I and ensuring us that things will work out, which they did!
Thanks also for the flowers, they were a lovely touch.
We met Kellie McKenzie from Belle Property at an open house in Excelsior Avenue Castle Hill. Kellie is a very warm and welcoming person; she is skilful in how she sells and promotes a property without being too “in your face”.
We are a professional couple with children and expect a high quality service and sales ability. After some research we decided to sign up with Kellie. We only realised how good Kellie is as a real estate agent and the overall service from Belle Property as we strengthened our hunt for a new home. We met dozens of real estate agents – some barely acknowledged us on arrival, some didn’t follow us up on answers to questions we had when we showed genuine interest, and then some followed us around like an annoying fly and would not give us the space to view the property in our own way and time!
We feel that Kellie and the team from Belle are the new generation of real estate agents that will change the buyers’ view & perception of sales people in real estate. Kellie genuinely loves her job, knows her stuff and is a very caring and compassionate woman. We really appreciated all of her support and flexibility during the process of selling our home.
We also had the pleasure of meeting Andrew McDermott whom we purchased our new home with. He too is a new generation real estate agent for the better and is very genuine, honest and caring, as well as a great real estate agent. We often praise Kellie & her team at Belle to our friends & family. We highly recommend Kellie, Andrew & their team and would be happy to be contacted for a recommendation.
Belle Property, we wish you all the best for the future. Many thanks for a positive & memorable experience!
Your professionalism and all round excellence - Just a note to thank you for your professionalism and all round excellence during the sale of our unit at Castle Hill recently. Having seen the property languish on the market for months on end last year, it was a delight to realise such a quick sale once we had put the business in your hands.
It was a pleasure working with you and we couldn't be happier with the results, (allowing for the tough market conditions). Best Wishes for the future.
As you both know, I was EXTREMELY reluctant to use Real Estate Agents for the sale! However my home was a "challenge" both for you and I. Due to its "Character", the home needed someone with a lot of experience and expertise in their field, enter Kellie!
My tenants had children with "special needs" and this was respected and worked around, which I did appreciate.
I was kept very much in "the loop" of negotiations throughout the sale, regular informal coffees to keep me informed of changes/sales pitches/alterations in the market. My prior experience of Real Estate Agents were the total opposite, hence my great reluctance.
My home wasn't worth millions of dollars in a monetary sense, but it was worth millions in memories, Kellie was extremely sensitive to this and for this I was grateful.
Thanks guys and all the very best, you deserve to do well, you work extremely hard.
The Hills District is blessed with many professional real estate agencies and staff, so it seemed like it would be a difficult decision to select the right one to sell my home. Fortunately, it wasnt. From the moment Kellie Mckenzie entered my home I knew she was the correct choice.
Kellie came as a team with Andrew McDermott (her husband) and what a wonderful team they make. They are dedicated, ethical, professional, punctual, reliable, courteous and extremely hard working.
Selling your home sometimes comes with difficult and stressful situations and their kindness and constant communication at all times made the experience bearable and effortless.
Kellie and Andrew capitalised on their extensive knowledge of the market and that commitment ensured me of the right buyer. Most importantly the sale was fast and achieved a highly successful result.
It is therefore without any hesitation I would recommend Kellie and Andrew to any future vendors.
I would like to take this opportunity to again thank Kellie and Andrew for an outstanding result that came with faultless and professional service.
